Electrical short-circuit causes fire in Aycock Hall
Damage confined to one
residence hall room
Residents of Aycock Hall learned first-hand
the importance of fire drills whenreturning
from Fall Break on Tuesday evening. A room
The last major fire on ECU campus was
April 1. 1915. when the roof to the
Student Publications Building was
destroyed. At that time the building
served as the dining hall.

ly 6:45 p.m. when an extension cord which
was placed under a desk chair
"The friction of the cord
with the chair and the floor
eventually shorted it out
said Teresa Crocker, chief of
the ECU Police Department.
Damage in the residence
hall was confined to the room,
and residents in surrounding
rooms were able to return to
their rooms that evening.
Police officers responded to the call,
which came through the fire alarm system,
and were able to put out the fire using fire
extinguishers. Crocker said the officers
entered the room to ensure no one was
"They couldn't see because the the
smoke was so thick so they were down on the
ground, trying to see if anyone was in there
As a result of this, six officers were hospi-
talized for smoke inhalation.
"They were all released Tuesday night
and they are doing fine Crocker said. "The
thing about smoke is it doesn't bother you for
a few days, but then a couple
days later, you get sick, so we
wanted to be sure to get them
checked out Crocker said.
Police officers do not have
protective gear used by fire fight-
The officers will be evalu-
ated in a few days to see if they
are able to return to work or need
further medical attention.
Officers also assisted in evacuat-
ing the residents of the residence hall.
No students were injured during the fire
and the residents of the room were not in
their room when the fire occurred.
According to Manny Amaro, Director of
University Housing Services, the fire alarm
system worked perfectly.
"Every alarm in that building was ringing;
every light was flashing and every automatic
door closed Amaro said.

STUT WRI 1T.R
Amid all the new construction going on
around campus, one of the latest addi-
tions to Joyner Library includes the
library's original columns.
Joyner, originally built in 1954, was
named for James Yadkin Joyner, as bene-
factor of the university in 1955. It is now
the east wing, the section of the library
that is adjacent to the Student Health
According to the University Archives'
Building Inventory List, "this building
was L-shaped, 268 feet across the front,
with a central four-columned portico
The original architect was Eric G.
Flannagan of Henderson.
Joyner has undergone many changes
since its pioneer days. Before it existed,
the Austin building served as the library
and was succeeded by the Whichard
building until Joyner was erected. The
total cost for the maiden construction of
the library was $465,000; the building
covered a total of 84,641 square feet.
"The original columns were put back
up for financial reasons as well as their
historical value said Steve Mead, a pro-
fessor in the construction management
Just one of the pillars may cost as
much as $10,000 or more. With other
expenses, such as fill dirt, labor, and
structural supports, the university would
not be able to replace them.
"They (the columns) are made pri-
marily of limestone said John Shenette
of Facilities Planning.
The reinstallation of the columns will
last the length of the semester.
The limestone columns, which were part of the origianl Joyner Library, are being
resurrected to be part of the new Joyner Library addition.

Components such as fill dirt, steel beams, and structural supports are a
big part of the job. These things are crucial to the construction process
and take a significant amount of time.
"We have taken the veranda down and pieced it back together
All the original parts including the beams, pillars, and supports have
been conserved so that they may be used again.
Sentimental reasons also intermingle with the choice to keep the
"The columns were dedicated to our university by a family-owned
business said Dr. Gail Munde of Library Administration.
Because a new entrance is underway, tearing down the columns was
unavoidable. The library will include a plaza with seats and landscaping
as well. Library patrons coming from the campus mall will pass through
the columns and through the plaza to get inside the library.
The pillars will be free-standing with beams across the top so that an
open, breezeway-type entrance is shaped.
"Changing the entrance will be easier access to the libraryl said
Mary Jo Bratton, a former history teacher from ECU.
The construction process of the new entryway will be done shortly.
"Our schedule shows late October for completion of the columns
However, the plaza will take a little more time to be finished.
"The (completed) area will be finished for rhe return of spring semes-
ter in January 1998 Shenette said.

Florida to assemble pfiesteria task force
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) � The state will convene a task force to exam-
ine a deadly algae blamed for killing millions offish in coastal nvers in the
eastern United States and the risk of it arriving in Florida.
Pfiesteria piscicida devastated the Chesapeake Bay area this summer
and killed scores of fish in North Carolina over the past six years. The
microbe is suspected to afflict some watermen with dime-sized lesions,
memory loss and respiratory attacks.
An algae resembling pfiesteria has been found in Florida, most recently
in the St. Johns River near Jacksonville. But officials say it has not been
identified as pfiesteria.

This summer, Superior Court Judge A. Leon Stanback declared Haislip

at Dorothea Dix Hospital in Raleigh following his arrest.
Upon his release, Haislip pleaded guilty to two counts of taking inde-

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) The U.S. Supreme Court will not hear an
appeal by a former Superior Court judge who was censured for a sexual rela-

The high court Monday let stand the punishment imposed on former
Judge Robert C. Flanagan.
Flanagan had asked the court to hear his appeal of the censure imposed
March by the Connecticut Supreme Court.
Flanagan, who was not reappointed when his term expired last year, has
argued that his case was handled improperly and that he was denied due
Last year, the state Judicial Review Council voted to censure Flanagan
for failure to uphold the integrity of the judiciary and failure to act in a
manner that promotes public confidence in the judiciary. Flanagan carried
on a three-year relationship with a married court reporter who was regular-
ly assigned to his New Haven courtroom.

RALEIGH (AP) � The state has
begun experimenting with the use
of special credit cards in an effort to
reduce paperwork and save money.
The Division of Purchase and
Contract has issued "procurement
cards" to a dozen state agencies,
including several universities, com-
munity colleges and school systems.
Employees who use the cards,
v Inch arc similar to credit cards, will
no longer be required to submit
paperwork requesting approval
before they shop for less than $2,500
worth of government supplies.
"We've put an element of trust in
the process, but we think the oppor-
tunitv for savings are tremendous
said John Leaston, the state's pur-
State agencies now spend
between $75 and $150 to process
the paperwork involved with a rypi-
cal purchase of supplies. Much of
that cost is the result of staff time-
spent reviewing purchase requests
and filling out the forms necessary
for approval or rejection.
By using procurement cards, the
paperwork cost should be cut to less
than $20 per transaction. Iraston
Aj. ncies will also save money, he
contends, by writing fewer checks.
Now, agencies typically cut separate
checks for each purchase they make,
In the future, agencies will
instead write monthly checks to a
bank that manages the procurement
cards. The bank will be responsible
for paying individual vendors.
If the procurement cards prove
successful, the new system could be
expanded statewide next year.

Plagairism policy to be

was presented to the council last

revived the measure this year after
learning the procedure they call "par-
tial-birth" abortion was more com-
mon and used earlier in pregnancy
tjuui previously believed.
The bill lacks what Clinton and
abortion rights groups have insisted
upon throughout debate over the ban
� an exception to allow the proce-
dure when continuing a pregnancy
would jeopardize a woman's health.
They say the bill is unconstitutional
without such a provision.
The procedure � which involves
the partial extraction ot a fetus, legs
first, through the birth canal followed
by the drainage of its skull � may be
used only to save a woman's life.
The House passed the bill, 295-
136, in March with enough votes for
an override. The Senate amended
and passed the bill, 64-36, in May but
fell three votes short of the total
needed for an override.
Among the Senate amendments
approved today by the House was a
provision to allow doctors who face
prosecution under the measure to
present evidence from state medical
licensing boards at trial.
The amendments brought an
endorsement f-om the American
Medical Association, which generally
supports abortion rights but had
remained neutral on this issue. But
other professional groups such as the
American College of Obstetricians
and Gynecologists and the American
Medical Women's Association contin-
ue to oppose the ban.

The East Carolinian
The ECU Mice Department is encouraging students to be more aware but not fear-
ful of the recent incidents of rape and sexual assault that have been reported on cam-
pus. But with so many reportings, how is it possible for a student to not be afraid?
White the police do a good job of keeping order throughout campus, there is much
more that needs to be done to assure students that everything is under control. First of
all, ECU is well lit in some areas, but not ail. Sections of campus such as the mall and
the trails surrounding the General Classroom building can be frightening places for a stu-
dent who is walking home atone late at night from the library or the rec center.
Secondly, maybe those who do walk alone would feel a little safer if the blue emer-
gency lights spread throughout campus were more reliable. At-times, some of the lights
arc out of order, defeating the whole purpose of their existence.
'We at TEC feel that with all of the rape and sexual assault incidents that have been
reported, the university needs to hire more patrols and officers to "keep their eyes
open during the night. With more people on guard, students would feel a lot better
about walking through campus after dark, and officers would be able to pick up on more
of what is going on around campus late at night.
The late night escort service that is available is helpful, and allows students to get
from A to B feeling safe, but the service shuts down at 2 a.m. What happens when a stu-
dent needs to get from Jones to Clement at 3 a.mi That student is the one who walks
alone from one end of campus to the other. The service could provide students with
much more comfort if an escort was available at all times.
The only way we will be able to prove to ECU officials that a serious change is need-
ed is if we, as students, can prove that there have been enough incidents to promote
such a request. It is important that all rapes and sexual assault incidents be reported, not
only in an effort to prove the need for a safer campus, but also for the sake of justice.
With enough reportings, it is possible that we may see more lights and more patrols on
duty in ECU's near future.
Student votes matter to politicians
Politicians, whether it be
state house, UScongressor
city council realize more and
mart students are �voting. If
this trend continues the politi-
cians will have to address
concerns of the ECU students.
1 could give you numerous reasons
why you should not vote. 1 could tell
you how voting takes too much
time, politicians do not listen, my
one vote doe not count and voting
only encourages them, but I won't.
While leading this paragraph I
want you to imagine, to dream, to
think about a real possibility.
Imagine on election day only 10 per-
cent of the ECU population turned
out to vote (about 1,700 students).
What would happen?
We'l, I will tell you. Politicians
are concerned with getting reelcct-
ed � no matter if it is three days to
the election or three days after.
Based on that tidbit of knowledge,
politicians look who got them elect-
ed and who voted.
Don't believe me? Think
politicians do not care about your
vote? Let me tell you what politi-
cians do after they are elected or
defeated, if they are smart,
ftliticians sit down with their advis-
ers and took at who voted. Say in
precinct three politician Bob won
by a huge margin over political
crony Terri. Bob now looks at who
voted. Bob finds that 70 percent of
voters in precinct three are between
age 18 and 25. Now precinct three is
very important to Bob for him to
keep his position in the next elec-
tion. Bob will want to appease the
people who voted in precinct three,
why took it is the 18- to 25-year old
Since 1992 the number of ECU
students registering to vote has
increased. Politicians, whether it be
state house, US congress or city
council realize more and more stu-
dents are voting. If this trend con-
tinues the politicians will have to
address concerns of the ECU stu-
Teaching assistants, tired of
being at the bottom of the barrel
when it comes to receiving money?
Vote! City Council might not set
your wages. I will guarantee you
this, though, the more people who
vote and who are like you, the more
politicians will try to appease you.
Don't believe me? Let us took at
Florida. Huge retirement villa,
right? Well, the older the folks in
Florida vote and look at what they
get in return. In Florida, to renew a
drivers license, one only needs send
in a renewal by mail. People with
declining eyesight who might not
be able to pass the eye test can have
their drivers license renewed. Now
which part of the populace has
declining eyesight? If you do not
know, then wipe the drool off your
face and ask a friend.
I will give you the best reason in
the worldto vote. The right to com-
plain. In my opinion if you do not
vote, you have no right to complain.
Tired of potholes, no parking, occu-
pancy ordinances, or anything that
bothers you in the city? Vote. Voting
is the one outlet in which politicians
will be sure to hear your voice.
Unlike what a certain incumbent
counciiwomen says, you do not
need to change your drivers license
or pay a tax. Registering to vote is
easy. If you do not know now to reg-
ister, have questions, do not know
where to vote or have any problems
call the Board of Elections at 830-
4121. Remember that Friday is the
last day to register. If you send the
voter registration form in by mail, it
has to be postmarked by Friday

Student supports question of SRC music selection
Although not personally offended by
Christian music, I question the con-
stitutionality of the practice of the
staff of the Student Recreation
Center of playing religious music in
a stare school. Therefore, I am in
total agreement with the excellent
letter to the editor presented in
TEC by Laura Boyd on Sept. 23.
What is c en more flagrantly
unconstitutional is the unmitigated
gall of an individual in possession of
a remote control exercising what he
thinks is his right of censorship over
what somebody else is watching on
television. Some weeks ago, a pro-
gram appeared on the center televi-
sion of three that arc located in the
weight room area that featured a
parade of young ladies in bikinis at a
spring break-type of beach party I
was on an exercise bike, watching
this program which happened to be
on at that time � not that the pro-
gram was awfully important one way
or the other. A young man dressed in
SRC staff uniform, very neat in
appearance, marched up behind my
back and proceeded to flip the chan-
nels with a remote control. Perhaps I
wanted to say "Hey, I was watching
that program" � but 1 said nothing.
Ironically, that guy with the
remote selected a channel that fea-
tured in largs, clear letters the exact
quote that Laura Boyd cites in her
letter: "Congress shall make no law
respecting the establishing of reli-
gion, or the free exercise thereof I
then read the word that appeared
onscreen loud enough for others to
heat There were a few puzzled
looks. The apathy and lack of com-
prehension was stifling.
What docs this fellow's right to
censor, for whatever reason, what
others watch on television begin?
Where do the rights of others to
watch what happens to be on televi-
The action mentioned above has
nothing to do with the policyrules of
the SRC, or its policymakers or rule-
book. It had to do with the censor-
ship by one individual. It has even-
thing to do with the sanctimonious
and arrogant attit de of one individ-
ual walking around the place with a
My question about this is, how
much censorship and promotion of
popular religion should be allowed in
a state university under the authori-
ty of student employees, staff mem-
bers, administrators or professors?

Young women should take breast cancer seriously
Women truly deserve
the pest possible
information and advice
as ammunition to be used
in their war against
(Editor's note: This is Breast Cancer
For too many years, breast cancer
has robbed thousands of women of
their precious lives. The most com-
mon type of cancer among women
(American), breast cancer appears
in more than 140,000 women in the
United States each year. Although
breast cancer occurs in younger
women (and in about 900 men each
year), two-thirds of the more than
140,000 cases involve women more
than 50 years old. Moreover, during
her lifetime, the average woman has
roughly a 10 percent chance of
developing breast cancer.
Therefore, early detection is key to
saving thousands of lives each year.
As a matter of fact, most women
treated for earty breast cancer will
be breast cancer-free for the remain-
ing years of their lives. The National
Cancer Institute (NCI) recom-
mends a three-point breast cancer
detection plan for women to follow.
The plan includes the following:
mammography, examination by a
doctor or health professional and a
I to t sorVuir.inatiim (BMj.
Although only about 20 percent
of breast lumps are cancerous,
women at least 40 years old need
mammograms every one to two
years until age 50. Mammography
should be done annually after age
50. Why is a mammogram important
for women? A mammogram, an x-ray
of the breast, can show breast
changes which may suggest cancer.
Also, mammograms may reveal
tumors too small to be felt. During
mammography, pressure is applied
to the breast as it is pressed
between two plates. Normally, each
breast is x-rayed twice (from the
side and then the top). In any
event, mammography practice in
conjunction with a breast exam by a
health professional can reduce
breast cancer deaths among women
age 40 or older substantially.
During routine check-ups,
women should request breast exam-
inations. There the health profes-
sional practices palpation, the
process of feeling the breast and
underarm with the fingers to check
for lumps. The health professional
also examines the breasts for puck-
ering of the skin, dimpling, scaling
and a discharge from the nipples.
Further, women should ask the doc-
tor or health professional any ques-
tions relating to the changes in their
Breast self-exams should be done
monthly The BSE allows women to
become very familiar with the usual
appearance and feel of their breasts.
Therefore, women find it easier to
notice any unusual changes in their
breasts. .Some health professionals
n.vomnvnd that women u a BSK
each day for a month. Again the
main reason for the BSE is to allow
women to make an carry discovery
of any breast changes from what is
normal. Furthermore, many gyne-
cologists suggest that women take a
BSE two or three days after the end
of a period, because the breasts are
least likely to be swollen or tender
at that time. However, women with-
out periods should select a certain
day of the month as a reminder of
In conclusion, the breast cancer
detection plan provides earty detec-
tion and symptoms of breast cancer.
Indeed, regular mammograms, rou-
tine breast exams by a health pro-
fessional and BSEs are key to earty
detection. These methods collec-
tively have proven to be more effec-
tive than ultrasounds (detect breast
changes by using sound waves),
thermography (measures heat pat-
terns of the skin) and diaphonogra-
phy or transillumination (a bright
light is shone through the breasts).
Women truly deserve the best possi-
ble information and advice as
ammunition to be used in their war
against breast cancer.
Protecting constitution provides for religious freedom
Quite frankly I am concerned about
the reading comprehension skills at
ECU after reading the responses to
my letter about the SRC. It seems
that very few have grasped the issue.
If it were just a matter of not liking
Christian music, I could take a walk-
man to the SRC. The real issue, as
expressed in my first letter, is one of.
religious freedom and state inter-
Many people have claimed a right
to have the SRC play religious music
while they work out. What people
don't seem to understand is that
there is a very important reason why
they cannot have this. The first sen-
tence of the first amendment reads,
"Congress shall make no law
respecting an establishment of reli-
gion, or prohibiting the free exercise
thereof Any attack to the first half
of that statement puts the second
half in jeopardy. The very right you
exercise everyday in your private
religious practices is the one which
prohibits religious music to be
played by the SRC. Perhaps it upsets
you that the SRC cannot play reli-
gious music, but how upset would
you be if you lived in a country with-
out any religious tolerance, a country
where you would have to fear for
your life if your beliefs differed from
those dictated by the state? This is
what you are asking for! Our country
was founded by people seeking free-
dom from state religion. Not only
was it important for them to assert
the right of freedom to practice any
religion privately, but it was neces-
sary to add that the state should not
be involved in any way. If you violate
the separation of church and state,
you put your right to private reli-
gious practice at risk. This is why
the Supreme Court has ruled so
strongly against any and all religion
in the schools, and it is also why the
SRC must not play religious musk.
If you REALLY love Jesus, Allah,
Zeus or the Church of Elvis, you dd
not want the state interfering with
your private religious practices. You
do not want state-supported schools
to violate the first amendment's pro-
vision for separation of church and
state. You do not want the SRC to;
broadcast Christian music.

been going on since at least second
summer session. What kind of
impression are we making on our
freshmen? East Carolina is the
third-largest school in the state and
we are always trying to gain respect
from our brethren in the UNC-sys-

such as setting the clocks in the

in class with a ring protruding from
his or her nose, eyebrow, lip or navel,

The trend of body piercing is sweeping
America, and it's already started on college cam-
puses like ours. This is no surprise, since one of the
great things about going away to college is the tact
that students tend to loosen up and try new things.
More and more students are taking the plunge and
getting a piercing, and few of them regret their deci-
sions. , .
Sara, 19, has five holes in each ear, which is not
unusual, but she also sports a nose ring. Hers was a
split decision. .
"One of the reasons (I) did it was cause it only
cost five bucks she said, and added she hopes to
get her tongue and evebrow pierced sometime.
Drew, a freshman, recently got his tongue
pierced with a barbell. .
"I'd been waiting to do it for
almost a year he said. "The
adrenaline rushjfrom the
piercing) is cool
Drew likes the way pierc-
ings look, and he got the
barbell as an adornment
more than anything else.
Tony, 19, agrees with him.
"I just think it's sexy he
said, adding he would like to
get his eyebrow pierced but

OK, so you want to get a
piercing. Before you go for it,
be sure of the following:
�The piercing will not violate personal
appearance codes at your job or any job
you wish to apply for
�Your piercer is legitimate (Energy is
Ihe only legitimate business in
Greenville which offers piercing)
�Your piercer uses adequate
(sterilization methods, fresh latex
;loves, and a new needle every time
�Your piercer instructs you on proper
care of the piercing

tongue pierced for
she has something to say about
the way the trend appears to be growing.
"I think other people get it done just to do some-
thing crazy, which is uncool she said. I mean, think
about it! Youjre putting a big chunk of metal through
your tongue . ,
Apparently, thinking about it hardly encourages
some of the more fainthearted students to try it.
Courtney, 20, would like to get a piercing, but admit-
ted "I'm a wimp when it comes to pain.
central figure in Greenville's piercing revolution
is Kristen, who runs her own piercing business out ot
the newly opened tobacco shop, Energy, in down-
town Greenville. She has been piercing since 198V
and now, at age 25, she knows all there is to know
about the art. Unfortunately, in the emerging pierc-
ing culture, any needle-happy man, woman or child
can claim to be a body piercer.
"There is no such thing as a certification tor pierc-
ing" she said. "What you need to look for in a good
piercer is someone who knows what they re doing,
has a lot of experience, knowledge of the anatomy
being pierced, the tools to be used, the procedure to
be followed, the correct jewelry gauge and diameter
for each individual piercing andmost importantly,
has sterilized everything properly
Kristen uses a douolc sterilization process herselt:
a soak in a cold sterilizing solution followed by an
autoclave procedure, both of which ensure that her
forceps and other tools are entirely free of any bacte-
ria and pathogens which could be transferred from
one piercee to another.
Her needles, which are hollow, come in onetime
use only packets which she opens in front of piercees.
Kristen uses hollow needles (called conng needles)
because they "take out where the needles are actual-
ly going in
She explained this is to prevent pressure and ten-
sion in the body tissues" caused by gun piercing, in
which bodv tissue is merely displaced, instead ot
removed, to make room for the stud.
"(In) doing the procedure properly, 1 m helping
(customers) bv keeping them from going to a fly-by-
night person or trying it themselves, she said sin-
cerely. "Piercing is very personal for me.
Kristen hopes her customers leave with more than
a piercing. She wants them to take with them a sense
of her professionalism and genuine care tor her
clients' well-leing. - .
The process works like this: F-st, the piercee,
who has made a prior appointmenr. selects the gauge
of ring or barbell that he or she desires, depending on
the location of the piercing and the advice offered by
Kristen. She then explains about the piercing process
and asks her client to sign a waiver before she begins
the procedure. In her office, she soaks the jewelry in
sterile solution while going over aftercare
t i o n s
wearing new latex
surgical gloves, she
marks the area to be
pierced, sterilizes it then
darkens the mark. With forceps,
she pinches the flesh to be
pierced, then has the client lie down
on a sterile doctor's bench, where the
actual piercing, which takes only a cou-
ple of seconds, occurs. The jewelry direct-
ly follows the needle through the flesh, then
needle and gloves are disposed of. The
piercee receives a packet of antibacterial oint-
ment and aftercare instruction sheet to make
caring for the piercing easier.
The pain of piercing is not as intense as might
be expected; on the contrary, many piercees enjoy
the rush of endorphins that a piercing can cause. A
new piercing is ornamental, fun, relatively easy to
care for and a great way to get attention.
Besides, if you don't like it, you can always let the
hole heal. Unlike a tattoo, you don't have to be
"stuck with it forever If done properly and with
sterile instruments, piercing can be a cool expen-

Because of the very versatile and
malleable nature of the instruments
used in Electronica, such as synthe-
sizers, drum machines and sam-
plers, the opportunities for makinL
modern pop music have expanded
exponentially. No longer confined
to the basic four piece set of two
guitars, bass and drums, rock musi-
cians now have nearly unlimited
resources of sound at their disposal.
Unfortunately, the majority of
popular musicians settle for far less
than what they could be accom-
plishing. Though the technology is
far far advanced and the boundaries;
limitless, most composers today
barely achieve beyond what Brian
Wilson and George Martin were
able to achieve with the Beach Boys
and the Beatles back in the days of
mono, four track, reel to reel tape.
Now, like newer before, opportu-
nities for subtlety, grace and expres-
sion exist and yet the average elec-
tronic band settles for nothing more
than sampled, played out beats and
commonplace vocal arrangements.

Quartetto Gelato performs Oct. 15
Ron Ciikribim Jr.
TORONTO � In a small restau-
rant called the Mono Cliffs Inn,
an hour north of Toronto, Canada,
four noted classical musicians got
together for an inpromptu perfor-
mance at a friend's request. At the
time, it was an opportunity for the
four to cut loose a bit and have
some fun. Fot the audience at that
small restaurant, it was amazing.
So much so, that some 10 years
later, those same four musicians
are now in such demand that they
had to "quit (their) day jobs" in
order to keep up.
Quartetto Gclato's happy-
chance beginnings are part of
what drives this unique group
which takes their music seriously,
but not themselves.
"We all had met one another at
some time or other before
George Meanwell said. "Peter De
Sotto had a connection to every-
one in the group. In the late '80s,
we got together to play chamber
music for our own amusementor
amazement. We were invited to
play for our suppers at a friend's
restaurant and had such a good
time that we were asked to return.
Then we began to get invitations
to play on concert tout"

to world-wide status as being
more than he or the other band
members could have ever imag-

the group is made up of virtuoso

The band, and that's what they
call themselves, is the bringing

backgrounds both similar and
diverse. Each brings the ability to
play multiple musical instruments
at a level that others could only

the group had its European debut

If success hands ECU a bowl bid, then it will
be to the Liberty Bowl, or the newly named
AXAEquitablc St. Jude Liberty Bowl. It may be
4 mouthful to say, but it constitutes an important
Change in the Liberty Bowl that not only affects
ECU football, but also involves an ECU alum.
That alum is Terry Little (76), a native of
Saratoga, North Carolina and a vice president of
The Equitable, a member of the global AXA
group and provider of financial services.
Within the past couple of weeks, the
AXAEquitablc group worked out a three-year,
multi-million dollar deal with the Liberty Bowl
to become its new corporate sponsor.
In addition to his daily responsibilities at The
Equitable, which includes all financial and inter-
national communications, advertising and travel,
Little has just been named to the Board of
Directors and to the learn Selection Committee
for the bowl game.
According to Little, this new sponsorship of
the Liberty Bowl is just what AXAEquitablc

"St. Jude has a renowned, international repu-
tation in the fight against kid's cancer and it cer-
tainly fits with The Equitable and AXA's long
traditions of supporting worthy causes
Coordinators of the Liberty Bowl couldn't be
happier as well.
"We are really pleased and excited to have
companies of AXA and Equitable's stature and
reputation as our first-ever corporate-title spon-

Although his professional life
keeps him on the go, Little plans
to be here for the home game
against Cincinnati in a few weeks
to cheer on the Pirates.
The Liberty Bowl is now in its
39th year and is held in Memphis,
Tennessee. During bowl week,
many activities are held, including
a rodeo, a black-tie ball, and vari-
ous other parties.
The last bowl game ECU played was
the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tennessee
against Stanford University in 1995.
This year's bowl game will be broadcast on
ESPN at 3:30pm on New Year's Eve.
Just a reminder, the Conference USA season
kicks off for ECU (1-4) this coming weekend
when Southern Mississippi (3-2) comes to town.
In his first season as commentator
for ECU's campus station, WZMB,
Bob Smith has already made a mark
on the airwaves. He has found the
winning combination for successful
play-by-play: A loose, relaxed man-
ner on the air, and the willingness to
say what he thinks.
"Nobody at WZMB has ever
done play-by-play for the football
team, Smith said. "The Sports
Director has called games in the
past for baseball and Lady Pirate
basketball, but this is a first for the
Pirate football team
Even more remarkable is the fact
that Smith is also a student at ECU.
He began working in radio in his
native Greensboro, Smith hosted a
sports call-in show at a small station.

also hosts Pirate Talk, his own call-in

Intramural soccer season kicks off soon
Look at yourself before -
The 1997 Intramural Soccer season is
set to kick off on October 14 with a reg-
istration meeting, followed by team
sign-ups, and leading to the opening of
the season on Wednesday, October 23.
The registration meeting will be
conducted on Tuesday, October 14 at 5
pm in Mendenhall Student Center,
Room 244. All team captains should
plan on attending this meeting in order
to obtain necessary information and
paperwork for participation in the
league. Unaffiiiated players seeking a
team should also attend the meeting
for assistance in placement on a team.
Team sign-ups will be conducted the
following day on Vfedncsday, October
15 in 128 Student Recreation Center
from 10:00 am - 3:30 pm. Leagues will
be offered in Mcns Independent Gold
and Purple, Fraternity Gold and Purple,
Mens Residence Hall, Vvbmens
IndependentResidence Hall, and
Sorority. The Gold level is designed for
experienced players who wish to partic-
ipate in a highly competitive atmos-
phere whereas Purple leagues are
designed for teams who are recreation-
al or somewhat competitive but less
advanced in skills and experience. The
various leagues offered are intended to
provide a level of skill and competitive-
ness appropriate for anyone desiring to
play. League times are available on a
variety of days and times in order to
accommodate the schedules of partici-
pating teams. The Soccer Preview is an
additional program which will provide
extra pre-season play opportunities for
a limited number of teams in a jam-
boree format on Monday, October 20
and Tuesday, October 21. More
detailed information and sign-up guide-
lines for this program will be discussed
at the Soccer registration meeting.
Regular season play will begin on
Wednesday; October 22. All teams will
play a four game regular season fol-
lowed by a single elimination playoff
within each of the respective divisions.
Games will be held at the North
Ficklen Stadium Intramural Fields. In
order to participate, teams should send
a representative to the registration
meeting, complete a rosterparticipa-
tion contract, and sign-up for a league
the following day. Regulation teams are
composed of a minimum of nine players
but there is no roster limit. The offside
rule is not in effect and slide tackles are
not permitted. Participation is open to
currently enrolled students and facul-
tystaff of East Carolina University. All
participants will need to present a valid
ECU Identification card prior to each
and every game in order to participate.
The 19 program was composed of 72
teams with Captain Crunch capturing
the All-Campus Gold title. However,
Crunch captain Steve Parker has
remained silent regarding plans to reor-
ganize the team in an attempt to
defend the title. Regardless of the sta-
tus of last years champions, a host of
challengers arc expected to arise
including a team assembled by feisty
Clint Knox. Among the women,
Christy Hamilton is expected to bring
The Krush dynasty back for at least one
more year. Last year proved to be one
of their most difficult seasons as The
Cheese Nips lead by Candice Voigt,
Ellen Day, and Meghann Vitt fought
them to a standstill in the rain and mud
of the 19 championship. In the
Purple, LCH has several players includ-
ing captain Brian Cote returning from
their Cinderella championship team of
19. In one of the greatest comebacks
in recent memory, LCH won their only
regular season contest on the last day of
the regular season and then swept
through everyone in the playoffs to win
the All-Campus Purple title. Despite
the momentum built from the previous
season, the challenges are expected to
be many in this division as Michael
Bcacham, Chris Margeson, and Pete
Brotherton are expected to assemble
teams of high-octane offense. Another
highlight of the Purple division will be
spirited play of the Knuckleheadz who
will once again feature unique uniforms
in order to hide their skills. Brent
Smoothy Anderson and Jeremy All
Flash, No Substance Howard are pre-
pared the status as best-dressed players
in the league. The Sororities return
Alpha Omicron Pi as the defending
champion and will feature speedy
Michelle Gottschalk to lead the attack.
While the Intramural Soccer league has
been known for many skilled players
each year, the legendary Vu Radar Foot
Donie is once again expected to attract
the majority of recruiting attention as
he lobbies for a lifetime intramural con-
tract. For more information on the soc-
cer program, please contact David

The Oct. 11 football game between ECU and
Southern Mississippi will be televised nationally by
FOX Sports Net as part of Conference USA's
Game of the Week package.
Game time for the contest in Dowdy-Ficklen
Stadium will be 3:30 p.m. EDT.
ECU and Southern Miss were chosen to finish first

Garnett, who will be playing his

THE FOLLOWING LETTER ILLUSTRATES THE MENTALITY STEVE IS FIGHTING AGAINSI
Students need lesson
To the editor
Regarding Lucy Goodwin's letter
Sept. 5, I would like to point out the
other side of the strict occupancy
laws in Greenville.
Consider all of us who have pur-
chased homes in single family, resi-
dential neighborhoods to raise our
children only to have greedy realtors
sell a home to be rented to students.
When students move in. Hie realtor
tells them how to avoid being caught
so that four or more students can
share the house. Then their girl-
friends or boyfriends begin to stay
jver every night until they eventu-
ally move in too. Suddenly, there
are six or seven students living in a
in good citizenship, responsibility
three bedroom house.
Where arc all of their cars parked?
Not in the driveway, but in the yard
and on the street. Parties begin to be
thrown quite often, loud music is
played constantly, there is continuous
coming and going and traffic in-
Suddenly, the single family neigh-
borhood is not quiet and safe for small
children to play and ride their bikes.
The language spoken by the college
students and their behavior is often
not what parents whant their children
hearing and observing. Trash (beer
cans and bottles mostly) often litters
I lie yard after games and parties.
Wc arc a diverse community of
taxpayers. Why should temporary
residents (non-taxpayers) be
accomodatcd in single family neigh-
borhoods? There arc numerous
appartment complexes that cater to
students. Shouldn't the city
accoinodatc the families who arc the
backbone of the community?
The strict occupancy laws need to
remain in force. If students do not
wish to abide by a community's laws,
they need be better educated in citi-
zenship and responsibility.

were able to keep our poise and
composure to get the win
ECU will return to CAA play on

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) �The
Philadelphia 76ers left town last
week sounding like a dysfunctional
family. Clarence Weatherspoon
griped about not getting any
respect from the front office.
Derrick Colcman complained about
still being with the team.
But in Chapel Hill for preseason
workouts, the Sixers are bonding�
happily � with a new coach.
"I think God sent me Larry
Brown point guard Allen Iverson
said Tuesday "I think we've got the
best coach for me. Everybody told
me I wouldn't be able to deal with
Larry Brown, that he's too hard on
point guards and we wouldn't mix.

(5-15, 17-15, 15-11, 6-15, 8-15) at
UNC-Grecnsboro Tuesday. After
losing the game, the Pirates (12-10)
regrouped to take games two and
three before being downed by the
Spartans, winners of eight of their
Trailing one game to nothing, the
Pirates got right back in contention
as freshman Cinta Claro started to
warm up. Claro, who is ranked
fourth in the CAA for kills per game
at 3.40, burnt the Spartans (10-9) as
she collected a match-high 26 kills,
while recording just 11 errors on 58
attempts for a .259 hitting percent-
age. She also added 16 digs and one
block assist, while the 26 kills ties
her season-best and ranks as a team
high this season.
"Cinta did start hitting better
(Tuesday) said head coach Kim
Walker. "She actually hit a ball that
knocked a g rl down and after that, I
think she started to get a little con-
fidence back. That, together with
working on a couple of technical
were unable to get the ball in play
with only seconds left last season.
"Number one, I want them to
know they have to defend and
rebound Brown said. "I'm more
concerned with the halfcourt stuff
right now. We'll do a lot of scrim-
maging. I think it's important we
spend time teaching
Rookie Tim Thomas said, "He
does seem like a college coach. He's
a teacher and a motivator at the
same time. He takes time out to
teach us what we're doing wrong
Brown's efforts even include try-
ing to reach the disgruntled
Coleman, who showed up 15
aspects, put her back into a better
Along with Claro, freshman Liz
Hall continued her fine play, record-
ing her 10th double-double of the
season with 19 kills and 14 digs,
while Sarah Kary added nine kills
and eight total blocks. Kary also led
the team with a .273 hitting per-
centage as she committed just three
errors on 22 attempts.
As a team, the Pirates were outhit
.186 155 for the match but record-
ed 14 team blocks to eight for
UNCG. ECU currently leads the
CAA in team block average, with a
2.47 average. Also defensively, the
Pirates recorded 85 digs on the night
with six players reaching double dig-
its, including Claro, Hall, Kary (11),
Shannon Kacss (12), LaKeya Mason
(16) and Kristin Warner (12).
Though Claro and Hall kept
ECU in the match, the Pirates' trou-
bles started to multiply in the fourth
game as the Spartans outhit ECU
.447 102 to tie the match at two
games apiece and force a decisive
fifth game. In the fifth, the Pirates
were unable to stop UNCG before
losing 15-8 in rally scoring.
"We're still young and at points
we had four non-starters on the floor,
so we still have a long way to go, but
it looks promising. Walker said.
"Our defense was much better, we
dug 85 balls. And we outblocked
them pretty bad too. Wc just need to
work on delivering the ball to the
hitters better and wc could increase
our hitting percentage
