Shortly after the half-time festivities of
Saturday's game. newly crowned
Homecoming Queen Sharlynda Fleming
said her crown was a symbol of victory
despite the odds. Only the third African
American to receive the title at ECU,
Fleming said she was told repeatedly that
she could not win.
"All I would say when people tried to
discourage me was. "Through Christ, all
things are possible Fleming said, adding
that the weekend's outcome was a great
boost to her faith.
The junior chemistry major (Prc-Med)
said even her choice to come to ECU was
scrutinized. Many people from her
hometown of Roanoke Rapids told her she-
had made a had decision.
"I was told that because I did not
choose a historically black university that it
would be hard for me to have a social life
and that I would never get proper
recognition for my achievements
Fleming said. "So one thing I've learned
from all of this i not let the opinions and
words of others shape your future. It's all
up to what's m your heart and how hard
you're willing to work to get what you want
In addition to being the 1997
I lomecoming Queen, Fleming is active in
a number of campus organizations. She is
the Chaplain for Ladies Flite, the service
organization she represented; a resident
adviser for I'mstead Hall; a member of
Revelation Steppers; a member of
Koinonia Campus Ministries and a
member of the American Chemical
Society. She also volunteers to have lunch
with Alzheimers patients and is involved
with an after-school tutorial program.
Ladies Elite President Taiisha Coins
said Fleming's election as queen sends a
message of how ECU students want to be
perceived and represented.
"Sharlynda) has an essence that
follows her said Coins. "1 believe it is that
essence that compelled the student body
to choose her. She is a remarkable
representative for Ladies Flite. Being a
new organization to ECU, we needed this
boost of exposure to let people know the
kind of women we are
According to Fleming, the service
organization is important because the
members do more than talk about
problems. They take an active role in the
community to provide solutions and relief.
Fleming added that she takes the greatest
pride in being a member of Revelation
Steppers and Koinonia campus ministries
is it allows her to share the source of her
strength with others.
Fleming said one of the highlights of
winning was her chance to meet
Chancellor Richard Fakin, about whom
she had always heard a lot, but never knew
"Meeting the Chancellor was really
special Fleming said. "I le is very kind and
caring, and he seemed genuinely happy for
me. My encounter with him broke a lot of
stereotypes about people in high places.

Feminist guru promotes rights for men, women
CHAPEL HILL (AP) Gloria Steinem, the activist who helped launch
the feminist movement, says equality benefits men and women.
In a speech Thursday night at the University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill, Steinem said women have made advances but humanity
still has a long road to travel.
Steinem, 63, the founder of Ms. magazine, visited the campus on the
100th anniversary of the admittance of female students to the university
Steinem pointed out the nation's increasing prison population and
said the United States is the only industrialized democracy without
some form of national child care and health care.
Steinem also said men should leam to do what women do, such as
changing diapers, raising children and supporting spouses in their

Fish oil washes ashore, killing and threatening birds
WATSONVILLE, Calif. (AP) A white, glue-like substance that washed
ashore at Sunset State Beach, along with more than 15 dead shore birds,
�is a non-toxic fish oil, officials said Saturday.
The oil, found in large slicks in several parts of Monterey Bay, poses
no threat to humans. But once birds dive into it, many are not able to fly
and often die of hypothermia, officials said.
An additional hundred birds most of them grebes and loons were
alive but stuck on shore Saturday and needed to be rescued, said
Stephanie Price, the supervising ranger at Sunset State Beach.
Price said the squrce of the fish oil is not known.

L UJS. Rep. Rick Boucher said Friday the three counties have
expressed a desire for site visits by the Federal Bureau of Prisons
In September, Boucher sent letters to county administrators in five
"southwest Virginia counties inquiring whether they were interested in
providing a site for a new federal prison.
A federal prison would create 400 new jobs in the area.

New Territories. It said the routine" exercises start next Saturday and
last through December.
China deployed more than 4,000 troops in Hong Kong when it
recovered the territory from Britain on Jury 1.
Their arrival was a sensitive issue because of the hostility many Hong
Kong people feel toward an army they see as an enforcer of the
Communist system in China.

Continuing Education and Summer School
and the staff of Continuing Studies.The
award is to be named The Max Ray oyner
Award For Faculty Service TTirough Continuing
Education. Financial support for this award
is made possible by the Vice Chancellor
for Academic Affairs.
As part of instituting this prestigious
ECU award, the Division of Continuing
Studies is pleased to announce a design
competition open to all ECU faculty and
currently enrolled students. The competi-
tion seeks a design for a permanent sym-
bol of the award which can be replicated
into the small individual awards to be
given each year.The symbol should have
an area for the name of the award -The
Max Ray Joyner Award for Faculty Service
Through Continuing Education� and an area
where the name of each year's award
winner can be listed.The replica design
should have an area for the name of the
award, the year, and the awardee's name.
The permanent symbol of the award will
be placed in a visible location on campus.
The creator of the winning design will
receive a1,000 honorarium. An award
to construct the winning design and a
limited number of replicas will be given
separately. While there are no restric-
tions on the materials for the symbol and
replicas, designers should keep in mind
the permanent nature of both and the
importance of the awards. Size of both
should be appropriate for the intended
use, and designs may be two-dimensional
or three-dimensional All design submis-
sions should contain complete working
drawings with proper dimensions and
pertinent details indicated along with a
materials list.The deadline for submis-
sions is Friday, December i 2,5 p.m
to the Division of Continuing Studies
located in the Erwin Building. Envelopes
should be clearly labeled "design competi-

cate their names, addresses, and daytime
phone numbers. A committee will select
the winning design.

Generation X is an apathetic bunch of sedated youths who could tell you all about the latest
Sony Playstation and absolutely nothing about Janet Reno. ECU's branch of Generation Xers
are the epitome of the stereotype; less than 1,000 of them bothered to vote for their own
political leaders in the mast recent Student Government Association election. Well, after all,
they are a bunch of Generation X losers right?
Bologna. TEC does not believe for one second the easy-to-sell stereotype of our generation.
TEC believes instead that the reason students are so disinterested in SGA is because most of
them couldn't name one thing SGA does for them. We all know what the President,
congressmen, even the mayor do. But what does SGA do and why should anyone care?
More to the point, whose job is it to ensure that every student of this campus knows the
leadership opportunities available to them and the responsibilities of those positions? Assuming
students would vote if they knew how SGA affects them, whose job is it to inform them of SGA's
Obviously, SGA bears a large part of the burden, but what would SGA gain from massive
efforts to inform the campus of their responsibilities? Would the voting population of the
university increase? If the voting population increased, then would the new voters outnumber
traditional voters? Would the new voters belong to the same organizations as traditional voters
and would they believe in the same things? What we are suggesting is that SGA gains little from
massive efforts to inform students. If anything, they would only shake up the status quo by
TEC has not, in recent years, been shy of chastising the SGA but we would like to shoulder
some of the burden of informing students ourselves. While we feel that a few measly sheets
hanging from trees on the mall is a sorry excuse for campaigning, we understand the problem.
Who would spend money advertising if they win without it?
In light of our conclusion that there is no easy answer, we will be focusing our attention on
various leadership positions on our news pages. Today, the first in a series highlights the role of
the SGA president and vice president. We hope the articles will be informative for students and
give them a reason to vote in upcoming elections. We also hope the effort will spark similar
efforts by the SGA to increase voter awareness on campus.
Flag sacred.symbol, reminder of glory
the flag has always been the
last and best expression of
gratitude to a warrior whose
love of country transcended
the love of self . This tragedy
of ritual and heroism above
all else makes the flag sacred
Alone amongst the nations of the
Earth and thrice in a single century,
the United States has saved the
world from the dark hand of tyranny.
In 1917 she resolved to lead the
battered remnants of a dying France
and England to a victory that
American intervention alone made
possible. A quarter of a century iatcr
she saved the world from fascist
tyranny and led a bleeding and
exhausted Earth in triumph of
democracy over the ambitions of
communism. In a single lifetime
was it possible to behold each of
these events; to reflect on any of
them was to contemplate an epic in
military and human achievement.
Through the night of that long
travail, America proved she was a
nation of heroes. She had pride and
passion; she fought evil and won.
And when the wars were over and
many of her heroes lay dead,
America recounted the gallantry of
her fallen: she did so funerary and
anthem; she cradled the cerements
of the lost with prayers and living
In her anguish America groped
for a symbol as beautiful and sacred
as the memory of those she gently
laid to rest. She found that symbol
in a banner not dissimilar to the one
a poet named Key once watched,
battered but unbroken, flutter over
a fort named McKenry. For a wife
unable to hold back the tears as her
husband is buried, the flag has
always been the last and best
expression of gratitude to a warrior
whose love of country transcended
the love of self. This tragedy of
ritual and heroism above ail else
makes the flag sacred and inviolate.
And while there are those who
would insist that the very freedom
which the flag represents demands
that we permit the possibility of its
desecration, how little compass do
they give to the devotion which is
the heart of a hero, or reflection that
devotion has kept us free. It is only
fitting that the flag honors the
graves of heroes; they died for flag
and country, surely it befits this
ultimate of sacrifices to consecrate
with the colors their tombs. There
is nothing in war for which men will
fight more steadfastly than the
symbol of their nation. Inspired by
the flag which symbolized America
and all that America stood for,
America alone amongst the nations
of the Earth saved civilization.
Through two world wars and a cold
one, we acknowledged the
inviolability of our flag. There is
tragic irony that in the year 1989,
just as the Supreme Court ruled
unconstitutional any state
prohibition against flag-burning, we
saw the end of our long struggle
against the Soviet Union. I pray that
our resolve and courage as a people
did not go down that year, as did the
symbol of our courage and resolve.

Repeated attacks on Fridley unjustified
The repeated attacks on Inez
Fridley, council member for the
third district, remind me of my own
experience registering voters some
years ago. The criteria for being a
voter included a residence
requirement that had recently been
dropped from one year to about a
month, but there was wording about
what constituted a residence,
something about intending to make
the present location one's
permanent home. It was, and still is,
as far as I know, somewhat slippery.
There was wording about local taxes
and car registration, too. In an effort
to clarify the requirements, I
translated it to "a dormitory address
doesn't qualify, but other addresses
do and added that information to
the voter service notice on my office
door. I received a sharp letter from
the Board of Elections. That
Another time when I was
registering voters on campus, I
forgot to take off a campaign button
I had been wearing. I was clearly in
error. This time I got a notice from a
campus official requiring me to
remove the buttonThe person who
complained to the official needed
only to have called my attention to
the button, but setting things
straight didn't seem to be her total
Similarly, any error or confusion
there may have been in what Ms.
Fridley said could have been
corrected quickly, but getting the
facts straight was apparently a minor
part of Mr. McLawhorn's agenda.
The major purpose seems to be to
paint Ms. Fridley as anti-student.
I am grateful to have Ms.
Fridley's intelligence, public-
spiritedness and savvy working for
our community on the city council. I

Should police enter rooms without a warrant?
If I had been living in an
apartment, I most likely
would have gotten further
into drugs. I may have even
been arrested for worse things been
than simple possession had I
not had my run-in.
I was arrested for
while living in Slay
Hall. At the time, I
ECU police who
entered my room
without a warrant
I felt my privacy
had been invaded
and my freedom
My only thought
was that if I had
campus, my rights
as a citizen would
have kept the
police off of my
property. After all,
the rules for search
and seizure for
students living on campus give much more power to
the police than living in a house or apartment.
However, I have come a long way from the less-
than-responsible age of 18 to turning 24 Friday. I
suppose I see things differently than I did then.
Essentially, when a student agrees to live on-
campus at ECU they give up many of their basic
rights of privacy. An RA can enter a dorm room just
about any time they want, whether the occupant is
home or not. Fblice can get around carrying a warrant
to search a room myriad ways.
Furthermore, most judicial cases like mine stay on
campus; thus, a student who has his or her room
searched cannot hire a private attorney to represent
themselves (not that it would help with the stone
wall that is the Dean of Students office anyway).
So with all this in mind, why would I stand for the
rights of university police to enter a student's room
with such little probable cause? It is simple: at 18
years of age too many students do not have the
responsibility to handle the awesome freedom that is
living away from mom and dad.
In my case, the run-in was a wake-up call that
made me rethink my freedom, responsibility and
reasons for attending ECU. Although I know I hated
it at the time, my brush with ECU authorities put me
Fortunately, I went on to make the national
freshman honor society and later to graduation with
an athletic letter to boot.
In retrospect, the experience got me in line and
made me realize that, hey, as harmless as it seems,
using pot is illegal. If I had been living in an
apartment, I most likely would have gotten further
into drugs. I may have even been arrested for worse
things than simple possession had I not had my run-
The procedure with which RAs and campus police
enter an occupant's room may very well impinge on
the normal rights of adults. However, college
freshmen are not normal adults; we, as 18-year-olds,
are not fully aware of the maturity and responsibility
that makes us more productive citizens.
At the time, I was figuring out my life. I was 18. I
had the most freedom coupled with the least amount
of responsibility that I had ever had in my life. Many
students buckle under this enormous pressure; the
pressure that is widespread alcohol and drug use.
If stronger laws can aid campus police and RAs,
then perhaps, they can help guide students up paths
to more positive and productive lives. If I was to run
into the person I was at 18, now, I am sure my 18-
year-old self would probably consider my 24-year-old
self square as hell.
However, it is the passing into maturity, away from
alcohol binges and drug use, that is so satisfying. And
it is here that true contentment lies.

says: an emergency

threat is called in,
the police have a
right to search your
room, but only for
the bomb. Illegal
items found in the room cannot be used against you.
A police officer can search your person or any
surrounding areas for weapons if they have an arrest
warrant or are placing you under arrest. The search is done
to protect the police officer.
The consent search is the one I have a problem with. If
the police obtain consent from your roommate they can
search the room. The onfy place they cannot search is a.
locked box, drawer or other such item that you � not your
roommate�own. The key here is that the item is locked.
I will state that trying to divide up a 10x10 room would
be near impossible. However when it comes to the Bill of
Rights, I always believe the police should err on the side of
caution. Or basically get a warrant or obtain the persons
permission for whom you want to search.
The police should obtain the person's permission or get
a warrant for three reasons: one, civil liberties, enough
said; two, roommates can be bastards. It is unlikely but
your roommate could plant god knows what on your half of
the room and get you in trouble. Last but not least your
roommate could blame his illegal possessions on you if you
are not in the room.
The University does a good job with the RAs and their
ability to search a room. They cannot search a room. Only
a coordinator can enter a room for probable violations of
University Housing Code: loud noise, smell of drugs
(marijuana), or curfew violations. A coordinator can enter a
room if they have strong evidence a violation has occurred.
The coordinator can only enter the room if it is
occupied. Unoccupied rooms can only be entered in
unusual cases i.e. loud music that is disturbing other
residents and the room is unoccupied, flooding, broken
windows or severe maintenance problems.
Coordinators can enter a room, but they are only
allowed to look Opening of drawers, trunks or closets is
prohibited. A first for me, I applaud the University for
much of the entry policies for the ECU police and resident
advisers. The coordinator's ability to enter a room is a
Sure, in some cases, the coordinator should have the
ability to enter a room. Fights, fires or other such
emergencies are situations in which the coordinator should
enter a room.
Two consenting adults in a room past curfew is not a
reasonable reason to enter a room. Nor is having a beer
with your roommate. es, both examples are in violation of
University policy and drinking under age a violation of
state. But are they worth trampling over the Fourth
In these cases, the police should be called. The police
arc trained to handle these matters. I hope coordinators
entering rooms is rare and with just cause.
The University needs to rewrite the Room Entry for
Fblicy Violations to not allow coordinators in rooms, unless
it is an emergency The ECU Fblice are here for the other
violations. If the police have time to write tickets, they
have time to answer calls for housing violations in the

The End of Violence
NINE OUT OF TEN
joi in Davis
ASdST.VVT LIFESTYLE El UK
After filmmaker Wim Wenders
released his movie Until the End of
the World, he commented that, due
to television and Hollywood,
images had lost their power. He
preferred to create a more abstract
collection of images and use
dialogue and music to create the
focal point in his movies. The
soundtrack to Until the End of the
World got more attention than the
movie and got Wenders an
interview on Au Things Considered (a
leftist news magazine on National
Always a pioneer, Wenders is not
known for making movies that
appeal to the masses, nor is he
known for making movies that
actually get shown in theaters,
except for maybe at some exclusive
film festival. You may have to wait
to see the End of Violence until it
comes out on video or it gets a spot
on the Sundance Channel, but
soundtracks to Wenders' sell like
milk before a hurricane, so the
soundtrack is getting the sweet
end of the marketing.
There are actually two
soundtracks; one album is a
collection of instrumentals by
guitarist Ry Cooder. The other
soundtrack features a song by
Cooder and songs by the other 15
or so artists that contributed to the
film. Cooder's moody, echo-filled
song is the opener, followed by an
avant-garde soundbite from the
script. Though the soundbites,
which pop up a few more times,
aren't necessary, they're not
disruptive as they were on the
Natural Born Killers soundtrack.
Wenders has a lot of friends in
the music industry and has once
again assembled a stellar group of
performers. Both U2 and Michael

Dr. Sherry Ginn, of the ECU
Psychology Department, has an
unusual interest. In fact, it's an
interest that fics right in with the
Halloween spirit in the air.
Sherry Ginn, respected
professor and upstanding citizen,
is a science fiction and horror film
"I guess you could say it was a
hobby she said. Ginn recently
shared her interest in these films
in a Chew On This lecture in the
Close to 50 students and staff
gathered to enjoy free desserts and
drinks and listen to Ginn's lecture
entitled "Depictions of the Brain
and Mind in Classic Horror and
The lecture focused on the
evolving portrayal of the brain and
included footage from both classic
and modern sci-fi and horror films.
Ginn covered the depiction of the
brain and mind in contexts ranging
from the classic Jekyll and Hyde
scenario to the more current
fascination with aliens invading

dull Ginn said. There are a lot of
topics that one might never guess
could be attached to real science.
Ginn says she has found her
interest in science fiction and
horror films is often relevant to
topics discussed in the classroom.
Unfortunately, due to limited
time, Ginn is only able to touch on
it briefly in the classroom. The
Chew On This lecture series
provided the chance to address
these topics more fully. In fact,
many present in the audience
were Ginn's students.
Movies and television shape
the way many people perceive the
world around them. Ginn's lecture
and film presentation illustrated
how terrible it would be if people
took their ideas about the brain
and mind from popular media
As far as movies are concerned
though, Ginn has definite feelings
about the age-old classic black and
white vs. modern films debate.
She prefers classic horror and sci-fi

Despite the wide range of style
and culture, there is a strong unity
and flow of emotion from the
beginning to the end of the
soundtrack. Wenders may have
become too practiced at using
music to focus his cinematic
visions; the idea of possibly
ruining the music by watching the
movie is frightening. Still, if the
music is this good, then perhaps
the movie is as well.
English professor takes a
bite out of Dracula
D A 1. E W I 1.1.1 AS O N
Traditionally, horror has been cited
as a genre for the mindless masses,
definitely not something to be
taken seriously. But that attitude
has shifted slightly within the last
10 or 20 years. Not only has the
horror genre been taken seriously
by the literary and film industries,
but the academic world has
also illustrated its deep
interest in everything from
the walking dead to blood-
Dr. James Holte is just
one of the many scholars
who have placed an
intellectual, historical and
cultural spin on the horror genre
and, as a result, opened up entirely
new ways of viewing the terrifying
worlds lurking within.
Dr. Holte's fascination with
vampires dates back long before
he ever imagined being a scholar.
"I first became interested in
vampires watching old Bela Lugosi
movies as a kid recalls Dr. Holte.
'They were both frightening and
funny at the same time. When I
was in graduate school and was
getting a traditional degree in
literature, Bram Stoker's novel
Dracula was on the reading list.
Upon reading it, I discovered chat
it was in fact quite an effective
Dr. Holte is an ECU English
professor who has taught
everything from Victorian and
Beat literatures to film history.
However, his true passion focuses
on the horror genre as represented
in literature and film, particularly
those dealing with vampires. Dr.
Holte's latest work is a book
entitled Dracula in the Dark: The
Dracula Film Adaptations, which
examines the various
representations of Dracula in film
over the decades. And, with
Halloween rapidly approaching,
the timing couldn't be better.
To celebrate the publication of
his book and the joyous Halloween
season. Dr. Holte will be giving a
talk about Dracula and his history
at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 29 at
Barnes & Noble bookstore,
located at the University
Commons shopping center on
South Evans Street. A few copies
of Dr. Holte's book will be
available for browsing and
Since Dr. Holte not only has a
love for literature but also film, he
saw vampires as being an ideal way
to connect the two. "Since I was
teaching film, looking at film
adaptations of literature, Dracula
seemed to be the perfect example
to use, especially since
there are literally almost a
based on Stoker's
Dr. Holte's book reveals in
great detail the richness of
Dracula as a historical
figure, a myth and an icon
popular entertainment. "It
opens with the myth behind
Dracula, talks about the novel and
critical readings of the novel, and
then deals with the major film
adaptations says Dr. Holte. "It
also deals with vampire films in
general and has a filmography and
bibliography in the end for people
who haven't had enough blood and
teeth. There's a lot more out
The films highlighted in Dr.
Holte's book include such treats as
Tod Browning's 1931 Dracula, The
Horror of Dracula, Francis Ford
Coppola's adaptation of Bram
Stoker's Dracula, and Interview With
Interview With a Vampire is
particularly significant, notes Dr.
Holte, because it is one of the
most popular novels (which was
later translated to a Tom Cruise
Brad Pitt film) thac emphasizes
the eroticism of vampirism. 'The
eroticism was always with the
vampire Dr. Holte stresses. "It's
part of ics basic make-up. The
vampire is a sexual being. What
recent adaptations have done is
make the vampire a much more
attractive figure They've
downplayed some of the violence,
made the vampire a more
sympathetic character. It's a
suffering vampire, rather than a
monster, the Other. One of the
trends in modern society is
sympathy for the marginalized, so
you can see why this
interpretation of the vampire

But those who prefer their

New school record set for
women's soccer wins
ECU used a pair of second-half
goals and a solid defensive effort to
shutout American, 2-0, in CAA
action here Sunday amid rainy
conditions. With the win, the
Pirates improved to 8-9, 3-4 in the
CAA; while the Eagles fell to 7-8-1,
2-5 in the CAA. The eight wins are
an ECU schixil-record for victories
in a season.
In the scoreless first half, both
teams struggled to establish a
rhythm on the damp field. After 45
minutes, the Pirates had outshot
American 12 to 7.
In the second half, ECU was
much more effective in the
attacking third. The Pirates
recorded their first goal in the 62nd
minute on a free kick from 25 yards
by senior midfielder Courtney
Jurcich (Springfield, Va.) into the
far post. For Jurcich, it was her
second goal of the season.
At the 84:09 mark, sophomore
forward Jennifer Reiley (Alexandria,
Va.) played a throw-in from
freshman midfielder Katie Moran
(Oakton, Va.) and fired a shot into
the back of the net from 14 yards.
The goal was Reiley's fifth of the
year and tied her for the team lead
in points with 11.
The ECU defense lead by
sophomores Jill Davis (Pinehurst,
N.C.) and Dana Durbin (Cary.
N.C.) along with sophomore keeper
Amy Horton (Raleigh, N.C.)
withstood the American attack to
preserve the Pirates' fifth shutout
victory of 1997.
Horton finished with four saves,
anchoring the back line for ECU for
the entire 90 minutes. American
sophomore keeper Tara Felton
rallied 12 saves for the Eagles.
Reiley and freshman midfielder
Frin Cann (Bordentown, N.J.) led
ECU with six shot attempts apiece;
sophomore forward Lindsay Wynn
led AU with four shots.
"Certainly, it was great for us to
comeback after four consecutive
losses and get this win said ECU
head coach Neil Roberts. "This win
helps us in the conference
tournament seedings. It's nice to
set a record for wins in a season, but
I was more impressed today with
how we played as a team. Everyone
was focused and gave 100 percent
out there. All the girls stepped up
their play today, and when we do
that, we're a tough team to beat

action on Friday, Oct. 31, when they
host 12th-ranked George Mason.
