Xi Nu Chapter becomes
first black fraternity to
join IFC at ECU

I WKIT ER
Members of the Interfraternirv Council
(IFC) cast a history-making vote last
Tuesday making Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity,
Inc. (PBS) the first historically black
fraternity' to become a member of the IFC
on E( !U's campus.
President of the Xi Nu Chapter of PBS
and ECU's National Pan Hellenic Council
i N'PHC). C.hristia Rev told TEC the
fraternity's quest to join IFC began about
two months aiio when he attended an
N'PHC convention in Mobile. Ala.
"At the convention, I heard out national
executive director. Dr. Laurence Miller,
speaking on how PBS is in the process of
trving to join IFC nationally Re aid.
adding that nationally IFC is known as
NIC. "This gave me the idea of establishing
our chapter as a member at E( 'I . 1 saw it as
a step toward furthering our national
efforts
Dean i Students Ronald Speier is
ECU's fraternity adviser and co-adviser to
N'PHC. Speier said 1'BS's induction into
the IFC is a wonderful opportunity to show
unity on campus.
"It's an opportunity to foster joint efforts
in philanthropic, leadership and intramural
activities Speier said. "Even though PBS
and the other fraternities on the council
have different internal policies as far as
recruitment and some other practices go,
their overall goals are similar, and they
should work well together Rev agreed.
adding that PBS's
membership in the
IFC will break the
stigma of white Creek
letter organizations
being different and
separate from black
Creeks.
"Our mission
statements art-
worded differently"
Rev said, "but we're
all doing basically the
same thing. 1 lopefully,
all of this will
ommunicate that Creeks, in general, do
Christia Rey
NPHC President
not discriminate. Unity is what we stand
for
Speier said the IFC s acceptance of their
newest member shows a lot oi great
potential on behalf of EC! 's Creek
communitv and that it demonstrates how
student leaders tan work together to
achieve a common good.
"It's proof that groups can work together
out of their own will, as opposed to being
forced to join positive organizations
Speier said, expressing hopes that last
Tuesday's events will encourage another
historically black fraternity. Kappa Alpha
I'si. Inc to be the next to join NPI1C.

'lb graduate or not to graduate I hat is the
question some students may ask.
After all the hard work put into getting a
degree, some students then have to wonder
if they will have a proper graduation
ceremony. Departments such as English,
chemistry nursing and psychology arc-
having a departmental graduation while-
others like historv
and physics are not.
"We usually do not
have a special
ceremony for our
students. Those that
have received an
award get them at
our last seminar
said Dr. Mumtaz A.
Dinno, chairman of
the physics
department.
Chemistry's policies
have changed with
the help of some-
input from students
who were concerned
that they were not
getting proper recognition.
"We all voiced our opinions on the fact
that we were not having a formal graduation
within our department, said I laven I leight,
chemistry major
All of the current officers of the American
Chemical SocietyStudent Affiliates arc-
graduating in May.
"We have the largest graduating class in
many, many years I leight said.
The first formal graduation will be in the
spring.
English includes their professors in the
ceremonies as well.
"A lot ot professors get to hood the
students said ngel Savage, assistant to
the chairman of English. "English gives their
students a sense oi individual identification
that is more appreciated and (it makes) the
students feel more recognized. 1 he-
response is overwhelming
The historv department will not be-
holding a special ceremonv. but there will be
a reception in honor of the graduates.
Another class of students moves forward,
followed by the words of Dr. Stanley Riggs.
ECU's own faculty faculcv member.
Riggs. an award-winning geologist, has been
chosen to deliver the address at the fall
commencement on Dec. 13.
"I feel overwhelmed. 1 have heard that
there (will be) maybe close to 25,000 people
at the commencement. I have never spoken
to a group this size. I am a small time
person: I feel honored to be asked Riggs
said.
Riggs has received the O. Max Cardner
award from the University of North Carolina
Board of Governors in 1983, and was also the
first recipient of the lifetime honor of
Distinguished Professors of the College of
rts and Sciences in 1444.
"It is nice to be recognized by your
colleagues for your work. It makes you
humble to think you have been given such a
tremendous honor Riggs said.
Riggs has received more than bO grants
valued at 53.7 million from the National
Oceanographic and Atmospheric-
Administration. Environmental Protection
Agency The National Science Foundation
and other state wide agencies, lie has also
been the author of 50 journal anieles. J
book chapters and 13 books.
"Obtaining grants is a lot of hard work,
first you have to submit a competitive-
proposal, this includes months of major
man work and ground hours. All the work is

Patrol Officer Brandon Peebles calls in a drivers hscense number after

PHOTO BY WENOY MELTON
During a recent ride along with ECU police-
officers, TEC found that campus police officers
respond to anything that occurs on campus or any
university-owned property and are one of the only
campus police departments in North Carolina to
have their own l'l 1 system.
"If you're in a dorm or a classroom and you hit
911. it goes to our department, it doesn't go to
Greenville said Patrol Officer Brandon Peebles.
Peebles, at 21 years old, is the youngest officer in
the department. He went through a six month
police academy Basic Law Enforcement 'Training,
and was then able to work anywhere in North
Carolina as a law enforcement officer. However,
the training does not stop there.

"Hats use to go into Tyler
Dormitory regularly and
every summer, wt would
tune to chase hats up then
on the upper floors of
Tyler Dorm
-LT. W.R Reichstein
"A few weeks ago, we had a rail in a residence hall
with a report of a five-foot snake that had
wrapped around a pole, or the hamster on the
third floor ami on the second floor we found a
snake that was roughly 12 in long. It was a
harmless corn make that probably escaped from
someone's room.
- Jeffrey Rous
"Once you finish the police academy and you
get here working . like I am. you're always going
to in-service training. iDW'l detection, officer
survival, legal updates, etc.), they re constantly
sending us to schools said Peebles.
Some of the officers are still taking classes at
E lU. As state employees, they get one free class
a semester. The officers arc also able to work
around their schedule by using a hour break to go
to class if needed.
"Our chief really emphasizes us finishing
school, she really likes for people to have a four
year degree Peebles said.
The srudents in the dorm are the lCl
officer's main concern.
"We try to have at least two people on each
section in case something happens said Peebles.
There are four shifts with 8-9 people on each
shift. The officers change shifts as the students
change semesters.
"It gives you a chance to take classes during
the day" Peebles said.
The shifts are twelve-
hours long. 7 a.m. to 7p.m.
The ECU Police-
Department has
jurisdiction to am ECl
property and adjacent
streets.
if an offense occurs in out
jurisdiction and they go
over to 1st street, we can
still take action on them
over there. It just has to
occur in our jurisdk tion, "

On the ride along with
Peebles, he responded to a call at
approximately 11:10 pm for a
possible usage of marijuana in
Scott Hall. Peebles joined Patrol
Officer Tim Daughterly, at the
scene and they were
accompanied by the coordinator
of the dorm. They must first
stand outside the room to see if
there is a unique odor and if
there is, the officers can search
the room.
"They turned it over to us
when we asked them where it
was, so it was cut and dry pretty
much Peebles said.
The students received a state
citation and a campus
appearance ticket.
A lot of the time, they get
worse punishment through the
campus judicial system then the
court here in Greenville
Peebles said.
The marijuana was taken back
to the ECU police department
where Officer Daughterly
completed the paperwork.
"What I have to do is weigh it
fot the reports Daughterly
said.
A report is then sent to the
State bureau of Investigation
(SBI). The drugs weighed 7.7
grams.
Peebles pulled a car on
College Hill because the driver
was not wearing a seat belt. He
wrote the driver a ticket which
would cost the student $40.
"We write it (the ticket) out
and enter it into a computer just
for our own records, which takes
about 10 minutes Peebles said.
The ECU police constantly
monitor Greenville police
channels.
"We have a mutual aide
agreement with Greenville
Police Department. Say, if we
see something going on in
Danny's parking lot, that's not
really our jurisdiction, all we have
to do is let them know about it
and if they want us to intervene

The History and Physics departments have declined to provide departmental graduations
for their students this year. After spending four or more years pursuing an education, it'd be
nice to know that somebody cared. Rr the first time in history, a secondary education is not
something that only a few select people pursue. Rather, over the past 30 years, university
education has become a standard rite of passage for mainstream America.
Yet, as more students attend universities, less and less importance is placed on the successful
completion of such an endeavor. Where once great ceremony and reverence was given to such
an occasion, now it's simply a "get 'em in, get 'em out" routine performed robotically each
semester.
I The completion of a university education is for everyone a turning point, a nexus in life, the
end of one kind of cultural existence and the beginning of a new one. In other cultures, this
change carries great cultural weight. Some Native American peoples embark on a "vision

; Granted, the size of an average graduating class is somewhat large (2100 people) and the
logistics of carrying out a meaningful ceremony for that many students are tricky, which is what
he departmental graduations are supposed to be for. In the departmental graduation, there is
an opportunity for an intimate and meaningful recognition of individual achievement. When a
department declines to provide this for its students, that department denies the opportunity
be something more than a "stand up, OK, clap, OK, sit down now" experience.
ECU students work for years to complete their degrees. They pay thousands of dollars so
that they can jump through departmental and administrative hoops. R�r as long as they are
here, their lives are an intrinsic part of the university. After all that effort and time, some
personal recognition isn't too much to ask for.

Facts are good to know. Knowing the

When playing a rousing game of

However, telling you why the

surrounding the event is more
important.

Sentimentality good over holidays
could be the harbinger of

materialism and greed, calling
for religious reverence and
respect for the ureaT reason
for Christmas, but I won't.
There is no replacing family and
friends. Much like an aged
Bordeaux, relationships only
become better with time. I was up
in Raleigh (my hometown) a week
ago playing golf with two friends
with whom 1 grew up. We have
knownjeach other 20 years, lived on
the same block together as kids,
went to the same high school; one
of them came to ECU, the other
went to N.C. State. It is remarkable
how well you get to know one
another over such a period of time.
It is also very hard to relate this
bond to others. It is the kind of
thing that unless you have
experienced it, it is hard to
appreciate.
Reciprocally knowing what
makes each other tick and the
awareness of this amiable
knowledge is something rarefy
actualized in life. Knowing each
others' strengths and weaknesses
but transcending the frivolities that
too often hamper meaningful
friendships is perfection of human
bliss.
I am not one normally prone to
sentimental excursions, but
yesterday was my parents' thirty-
fifth anniversary35 years. I can
hardly make it through a semester
without dropping a class, let alone
35 years living with another person.
It is hard to fathom how well they
must know each other, the
experiences they have shared.
I suppose I am writing this
because deep in my heart I admire
what they have accomplished. I look
at their lives together and wonder if
I can find such commitment in my
own life. I hope I can.
It is also December, the official
month of national sentimentality,
which climaxes with Christmas and
resolves itself in New Years. As an

Cooper's research shoddy, prof says
Keith Cooper's opinion column (25
Nov. 1997) is a classic example of a
good cause having a bad advocate.
Race relations must be improved,
but to advocate such a worthy cause
with such shoddy historical
references calls into question the
message, its author and fellow
historians.
Mr. Cooper states George
Washington's life was saved by a
black at the Battle of Cowpcns.
Even as opinion, this statement
cannot be allowed to stand. People
arc entitled to their own opinion,
but in a university allowing free
exchange of knowledge, wrongs
must be pointed out for correction. I
am shocked that he passes on his
own opinion as fact and claims a
sister institution taught him such
rubbish. No University of North
Carolina historian, or any American
historian, Afro-American or not,
would claim Washington was at the
Battle of Cowpens, South Carolina
on 17 January 1781.
The incident did not happen
because of geography On 9 January
and 2 February 1781, Washington
was with the main army in New
Windsor, New York. Given the
transportation systems of the day it
was practically impossible for him to
be in South Carolina on the 17th
and return to New York by 2
February.
This fantastic error does not
reflect well on Mr. Cooper's
assimilation of knowledge and can
only lead me to consider his other
facts as equally erroneous. If he
would like to discuss the painting he
apparently used as source material, I
am prepared to give him the lesson
in artistic accuracy and
historiography that he apparently
never got at Chapel Hill.

I would like to thank The East
Carolinian for the delicately worded
"informative" anti-abortion
supplement (note sarcasm) in the
Thursday, Dec. 4 paper.
I'll pose one question regarding
this literature: Did this journalistic
endeavor just happen to slip into the
folds of a university newspaper,
missing its final destination
(perhaps a church bulletin)? I can't
possibly fathom that in a university
environment, based upon
encouraging the acquisition of
knowledge (i.e. not indoctrinated
morals) free thought and alternate
views, that we're still relying on
"scare tactics" to dissuade women
from making unbiased, informed
choices about how to treat their
bodies.
As everyone as the right to
acquire information and formulate
opinions about the circle of issues
surrounding abortion, this "packet"
made quite a statement of what
ECU's school paper stands for: an
unquestioning acceptance of the
insidious mind set that women just
really need to be kept in their place
after all. Give them an education
and send them back to their homes.
Yet now, in contemporary society
make sure they struggle with child,
job and quite often, no partner.
Good job in helping expand the
minds of the future.

Do You Like My
Tight
t Sweater
2 OUT OF 10
NICK WINSTEAD
STAFF WRITER
Remember Saturday morning
cartoons? Remember all the weird
sounds and funny voices the
characters used to make? Now
imagine those sounds and voices put
to music. Mobko's debut CD Do You
Lib My Tight Sweater bops along like a
romp through the depths of
toonland. This group's effort puts
emphasis on strong, funky bass and
techno oriented sound effects, giving
the listener the reeling of being in
the midst of a hyper dance club, or a
Warner Brothers cartoon. Out of the
seventeen songs on this album, there
are a few notable standouts.
The first song on the album, "Fun
for Me is a great mix of swanky
vocals accompanied by thumping
bass backbeats. This track has a very
edgy, crisp use of onomatopoeia,
using word phrases like rick-tcck,
bow-wow and rat-a-tat-tat very
effectively. The sounds of these
words add to th- accented vocals of
the unidentified lead singer. The
song progresses on and turns into a
sort of techno-rap with the bass
increasing to breakneck speed. "Day
forNight is another notable track on
this album This song just rolls along
merrily and can clearly be identified
as a throwback to the mid 1980s
through the way the instruments and
sounds are used. As scary as that
might sound, the effect is pleasant,
tying in those sounds with techno
sound effects and soft vocal
melodies. One of the major strengths
of this album is its ability to be
extremely versatile in its styles and
sounds and still come off as fresh and
imaginative.
"Killa Bunnies" is a track that
deserves a lot of recognition just for
the creative effort that went into it.
This song is a shock to hear at first
because it is so different from the
rest of the album; vocally and sound
wise. The freakish vocals can creep
you out at first. Just imagine
someone singing into a tin can and
you will understand. The
instrumentation and sounds in this
song sound a lot like some of Bjork's
work in her album Post. Good, strong
bass and drum rhythms add to the
powerful vocals of this bizarre but
strong song. This song's menacing
quality fits in nicely despite being a
contrast to the rest of the CD.
Cartoonish sound effects mix
nicety with strong vocals on the "I
Can't Help Myseir.The fyrics
almost seem like a freestyle
rappoetry reading with hypnotic
beats from a bongo drum in the
background. The song builds to a
rapid pace as the beats and bass get
faster and more frantic. It will take
you back to the days of psychedelic
music and combine that feelingwith
cutting-edge beats and fyrics. Think
of it as being at a rave surrounded by
Disney animation.
Moloko delivers a solid album on
its first try. The CD emphasizes
interesting, off-the-wall sounds and
sound mixes that give the album an
overall good quality Their album
comes across as an experiment in
trying to combine animation and
mind boggling sound effects with
good vocal tracks and super bass
quality. One shortcoming of this CD
is that the strong transitions between
songs that were prominent in the
early pan of the album disappear in
the latter half. Another small
problem is the length of the songs. A
couple of songs are over seven
minutes and auite a few are at least
five and a half. That can wear on the
ears after awhile. Overall Moloko
gives a fun, frisky album that will
cany them forward to continue their
blossoming career in music. As Fbrkv
Pig would say, "That's all folks

The East Carolinian
An ECU tradition
comes to a close
MICCAH SMITH
STAFF WRITER
This December, 50 years of one
family's East Carolina tradition
will come to an end with the
graduation of Erik Jorgenson,
third generation ECU affiliate
and second generation alumnus.
"It's good to be a part of it
hopefully it's not the end Erik said
about the deep sense of belonging his
family feels towards the university and
of his own contribution to the family
tradition in which both his father and
mother also participated by graduating
from ECU.
This is one tradition with which you
may be unfamiliar, although his family
has been linked to the campus since
1947, back when ECU was ECTC (East
Carolina Teachers' College).
This was the year Erik's grandfather,
Dr. Nephi Jorgenson, accepted a job as
health and physical education director
of the growing university at the age of
41.
Nephi's father immigrated from
Denmark and settled with his family in
Ohio in 1904. Nephi, the first Jorgenson
to be bom in America, attended Utah
State and went on to the University of
Oregon for a masters degree. He
received his Ph-D. from Iowa State.
Dr. Jorgenson held the position of
ECU's first athletic director. After
serving as both
professor and
chairman of the
health and physical
education
departments for 23
years, he
relinquished his
chairman position
but retained that of
professor until 1976,
when he retired.
Under his
directorship,
physical education majors were given
the freedom to pursue a more direct and
comprehensive field of education, and
the quality of physical education
teachers, coaches and driving
instructors graduating from ECU was
improved.
In 1974, Jorgenson was inducted into
the ECU Sports Hail of Fame and a
room in Minges Coliseum was named
after him.
"It's good to be apart
of it hopefully it's not
theend"
Erik Jorgenson
Biology Major
The Jorgenson family lived with
Nephi in campus housing for a number
of years. Erik's grandmother, a 1930
graduate, was also active in campus life
at this time. Lynn Jorgenson, Erik's
father, remembers living where
thousands of students now trample the
ground every day.
"All us kids grew up Irving on campus
where the Mendenhall Student
Center is he recalled, referring to a
time in the distant
past when our
campus was smaller
and a lot less
cluttered.
Erik will be Nephi's
4th grandchild to
graduate from ECU.
A biology major and
a member of Air
Force ROTC who
plans to begin pilot
training in August,
Erik says he did not
chose ECU out of any sense of
obligation; the school happened to be
convenient and close to home.
After 50 years of involvement with
and contributions to our university, the
Jorgenson family is very proud of their
heritage, excited to share in ECU's
history and hopeful that they will be
able to continue their involvement with
our university in the future.

seem more repetitive than original).
The newest example of a great idea ultimately
falling short of all it has to offer can be found in the
film Alien Resurrection, the fourth installment in the
hugely popular Alien series.
Those new to the lovely world of Alien will more
than likely be confused by many aspects of the
latest chapter because it picks up (sort of) where
the third chapter ended. In a nutshell, our heroine,
Ripley (played the always powerful Sigourney
Weaver), has a nightmarish history of dealing with a
deadly alien race unlike any that humans have ever
conceived of before. No matter where she goes, she
always finds herself smack in the middle of all the
carnage created by these aliens.
The last time we spent quality time with Ripley
and her alien companions (in the intriguing but
ultimately disappointing Alien 3), Ripley killed
herself because she discovered that her body had
been impregnated with an alien queen. Hurling
herself and her alien baby into a huge vat of molten
lava, Ripley transformed from a tough, kick-ass
warrior into a Christ figure who sacrifices herself for
the good of humankind. Thus concluded the Alien
series.
Or so we thought.
Knowing Hollywood's way of thinking, a fourth
film was inevitable. However, Joss Whedon's script
puts a rather unique spin on the series by bringing
Ripley back not in a silly "we thought she was dead
but she really wasn't" manner but, instead, in the
form of a genetic
clone. As it turns
out, 200 years after
Ripley's death, the
scientific
community has
finally, after many
failures,
successfully cloned
Ripley. Why? Not
because they really
like Ripley and
miss her keen
sense of humor,
that's for sure. No,
they want the alien
queen inside her
body so they can
study it, let it grow,
and let it
reproduce. Who
knows what great
products can result
from this alien race
once humans are
able to
domesticate it and
turn it into some
sort of complacent
cow?
But wait.
Something
unexpected has
occurred in Ripley. Amazingly enough, the human
clone of Ripley not only has memories of her former
self but also memories of the alien race. The
resurrected Ripley is now not simply human but a
humanalien hybrid that carries the genes of both
races. Along with mixed memories, Ripley also
possesses the alien's superior strength and agility
Ripley has now transformed from Christ into
Superwoman.
All of this plot summary adds up to my point �
the filmmakers have got themselves some
incredible material to work with. Add in a superior

when Peanuts was still a worthy

Charlie Brown TV specials. The jazz
pianist Vince Guraldi was responsible
for the very cool soundtrack to all of
these, including the soundtrack to
the Christmas special. In the late
'80s, Fantasy Records released that
soundtrack on CD. Guraldi's tno,
featuring Monty Budwig on bass and
Colin Bailey on drums, was a smooth,
tight trio and their versions of seven
standards are superb and sparkling.
The best tracks on this disc are their
originals though, such as "Skating"

as a possibility on some dark horizon,
there is a remedy to such over
marketing and that is the Chieftains,
who have made a career out of
recording old Celtic tunes for
posterity. Like many Chieftains
albums, this disc is littered with guest
stars such as Elvis Costello, Nanci
Griffith, Jackson Browne and Rkkie
Lee Jones. Spiced like some good
Christmas cider, this disc is filled
with reels, jigs and the dark
spirituality that is standard for Celtic
Catholicism.
The Darkest Night of the Year �
Over the Rhine. Most people don't
actually have Christmases like the
Griswolds. Christmas tends to be a
quiet, solemn holiday at times,
especially for those who focus on the
Christian aspect of the holiday. This
Ohio sextet have brought this quiet,
hallowed quality out in their album,
which features some very passionate
renditions of traditional carols, as well
as some powerful original
compositions. Guitarist Ric
Hordinski composed two brilliant
and dark instrumentals that sounds
like a meeting of Hendrix and the
Edge. Especially beautiful is the
haunting "Mary's Waltz This disc
can only be bought through the mail,
though. Write Over the Rhine at PO
Box 2572 Cincinnati Ohio, 45201 or
e-mail them at OTRhine@aol.com.
Christmas � Michael W Smith.
Ok, ok, so Michael W Smith is the
King of Christian cheese-pop. That's
part of what makes this CD such a
treat. Smith, while being a pretty
lousy pop musician, is a whiz with
traditional music, especially hymns.
Filled mostly with originals, this disc
carries a wonderfully reverent flavor
with it that is actually fresh and
inspiring. The string arrangements
are gorgeous and the hrics (not
written by Smith) arc actually above
average. Smith uses Boys' Choirs,
orchestras and modem pop elements
in a way that makes one wish he'd
gone into hymn writing rather than
pop music. But they didn't have the
Myers-Briggs test back then, which is
too bad. As it is, this album is no
doubt going to be regarded as his
finest work (mostly because of how
cheesy his other music is).
Holiday-oriented music can be a
drag. Just remember that Yanni hasn't
made a Christmas CD yet.
Remember that Puff Daddy hasn't
found a way to remix the dead voice
of George Frederick Handel yet.
Remember that you don't have to
spend your cash on stocking coal.
Instead, take the advice of a friendly
music critic and buy some quality this
year. And have a merry Christmas.

visual director like Jean-Pierre
Jeunct (whose masterful French sci-
fi treat, City of Lost Children, is a
must-see), dazzling special effects
that include CGI-created aliens, a
cast packed with solid professionals
like Winona Ryder (whose character
has a deep secret herself) and Ron
Perlman, and you've got yourself
one helluva movie.
Or so you'd think.
Unfortunately, ABen Resurrection,
with a few exceptions, comes off as
a lifeless rehash of things we've
already seen before. Fans of the
series expect two things in their
Alien movies: horror and, to a certain
extent, action. The new film has
both those elements, but even that
feels lacking, especially when
compared to the first two films.
But most depressing of all is the
fact that the filmmakers are
reluctant to sink their teeth into the
great material they've set up. Ripley
ts a hybrid with superhuman
strength, yet Ripley never really
does anything extraordinary. She is
almost more of an observer and
commentator than an actual
participant in the on-screen horror.
Also, because Ripley is an alien
hybrid, she has conflicting emotions
concerning humans and the aliens.
However, she kills an alien simply
because it, as Ripley puts it, got in
her way. When Ripley does
somewhat bond with the aliens by
the end, the result is so lacking of
logic that it is more confusing than
revealing.
Worst of all, interesting
characterizations and conflicts are
all sacrificed for a lame plot that,
ultimately, involves nothing more
than our heroes trying to get back to
their ship so they can escape.
Keeping in mind that Ripley is a
hybrid and that she docs have a
connection to the alien race, it
doesn't take a genius to come up
with a more involving obstacle for
our heroes.
When viewed in individual parts,
Alien Resurrection does have its
charm. But taken as a whole, the
film is one missed opportunity after
another. Despite my criticisms of
the series, I do acknowledge the
ABen films as some of the most
unique, daring and influential
science fictionhorror movies ever
made. However, when you see
something that you truly love
suffering, you have a gut instinct to
put a gun to its head and end its
misery. As much as it breaks my
heart, I think it's time we pull the
trigger on our alien friends and
move on with our lives. We will
always have the memories.

Pirates defeat Campbell
in Saturday match up
AMANDA ROSS
SPORTS EDITOR
After ECU got over the hump of the first few minutes of Saturday's
game with Campbell, they coasted to a 74-62 win over the Camels.
The Camels jumped out to the quick lead but with 15:12 left in
the first half, Dink Peters made a lay up to put ECU up for good until
the end of the game.
ECU shot 48 percent in the first half, and 35 percent from three
point range. Othello Meadows led the Pirates with 11 points in the
first half, followed byRaphacl Edwards with 10 points.
Sophomore Garrctt Blackwclder poured on the points in the
second half with 11 to finish with 16 points to lead the team.
Blackwclder had an extra incentive to play well because the head
coach of Campbell, Billy Lee, is Blackwclder s uncle.
"It gives me a little more incentive to win, 1 guess you could say
Blackwclder said. "I treat it like any other game, Campbell's a great
team
Blackwelder's 16 points was a career high for him, and he said it
felt good to keep draining the shots.
"It feels good any time you score points Blackwclder said. "When
you win it feels good
Head Coach Joe Dooley was pleased with Blackwelders
performance and joked that he hopes he has more uncles on the other
bench. . ,
"He's done a very good job of working everyday in practice; he s
playing a lot more minutes this year than he did last year Dooley
said. "Every game you can sec him continue to grow and develop and
he just did a super job tonight
"Hopefully he has a bunch more uncles Dooley said.

I can't believe it's over. Three and a half years of college and two and
a half years as sports editor will end this Friday when 1 graduate. It's a
tradition that when editors leave they write their farewell column, so
here it goes.
Little did I know back in 1995 all the opportunities 1 would be
given as sports editor of The East Carohman. Traveling wi th the football
team, getting to know the players and coaches, and just watching
ECU athletics really take off in the past couple of years, has been
extremely enjoyable.
The ride has had its downfalls at times, as with any job, but I can
honestly say I wouldn't change anything I have done during my reign
as sports editor. In my opinion, and I guess I'm a little biased, I tend
to believe the sports page is very informative and has gotten better
the past couple of years. � .
Looking back I think what I am most grateful for is the friendships
I have made with the players, coaches and athletic administrators over
the years. I believe these are friendships I will always have and will
always cherish.

never forget ail the long production nights, the lengthy meetings, and,
of course, our unofficial office parties (those were definitely
memorable!). Seeing the paper come out every Tuesday and Thursday
made my job rewarding.
The people here are some of the hardest working people 1 have
ever seen. Everybody gives 110 percent to our publication. I will
always have a special place in my heart for everybody I have worked
with, and I will look back at my experience with nothing but positive
words. . .
1 thought leaving wouldn't be so hard to do, but now that 1 am
finishing up on Friday, I realize how weird it will be not to be working
for the paper. This has been such a huge part of my life that it will be
awkward not to come in on Mondays and Wednesdays and put the
sports section together.
But as they say, all good things must come to an end, and now my
time is over. It's been a blast and I would like to thank everyone who
made it possible for me to do my job, including you, the reader.
It's hard to say good-bye after such a long time, but I know I must.
So this is my farewell. Good-bye and thank you; it's been fun.
ECU's club teams span the spectrum of collegiate club
sports. From the two-time national champion Men's
Ultimate Frisbee Club to Underwater Hockey, ECU's
club sports offerings are as varied as they arc successful.
Martial arts clubs make up one quarter of the ECU
club sports offerings. They range from Tai Chi Chaun,
used for meditation, to Goju Shorin, used solely for self
defense. The teams spent the fall competing in
tournaments and holding demos. The Isshinryu club
traveled to the prestigious AOKA Nationals. While the
Tae Kwon Do club went to the Collegiate National Tae
Kwon Do Championships in Kansas City where they won
five medals. All four martial arts clubs arc currently
planning the second annual ECU Martial Arts Invitational
slated for late April.
Another club looking to host its own tournament is the
Swimming club. This fall they competed in tournaments
at the University of North Florida and Chapel hill, where
they took second.
Not all clubs spent the fall competing. The Water
skiing club will begin competition in the South Atlantic
League this spring. Meanwhile, they have expanded to
include wakeboarding and purchased a slalom course.
"Wj've got people really excited club member Ryan
Bullard said, "The membership is the highest since I've
been here
The Men's Volleyball club spent their autumn holding
clinics for high school kids and practicing for their
upcoming spring season. However, the Women's
Volleyball club went undefeated. They won tournaments
at William and Mary and right here in Greenville. Their
perfect fall season qualified them for the nationals in
Austin, Texas.
Clubs such as Volleyball, who have varsity siblings, do
not play as much for recognition as they do for the
enjoyment of their sport. ,
"We have a lot of fun. We don't have to stop playing
after high school club member Terry Simmons said.
In addition to martial arts and traditional sports, ECU
has clubs for kayaking, disc golf, underwater hockey and a
crew club scheduled to start this spring.
Most of ECU's club teams toil in anonymity. This
seeming invisibility can be caused by being overshadowed
by a varsity counterpart or the relative obscurity of their
sport. However there arc certain teams whose success and
popularity have made them the transcendent club sports.
The Men's and Women's Ultimate Frisbee teams
played their fall seasons in leagues with both collegiate
and independent teams. The women's team team posted
strong showings in tournaments in Savannah and
Wilmington.
"We have a lot of new girls who arc really interested
and who want to get into it said club member Lindsay
Kolconay.
The men's team performed well at sectionals and
regionals. They also placed third in the North Carolina
State Tournament. The team is looking to return to the
national finals in the spring.
"It's very competitive in the spring club member

Swim teams head south for holiday training
Men and women
pack up for trip to
Florida
SCOTT ROSE
STAFF WRITER
Both the women's and men's swim
teams are off to another great start.
The women's team sit atop the
CAA at 6-0 and the men's team is 5-
1. Both teams are in great position
to finish off the season with
outstanding records. Head Coach
Rick Kobe is hoping for both his
teams to win the remainder of their
meets.
Last year the women's team
finished the season with an 8-2
mark while the men's finished up
with a 9-1 record. This year's goal
for both teams will be the
conference title at the end of the
year. For the past three years the
women's team has dominated the
CAA conference with three
consecutive titles, while the men's
last title came in 1989.
Earning the conference title this
year won't be easy, with strong
teams like UNC Wilmington and
James Madison on the women's
side and for the men, they will have
to meet the challenge of a high-
powered James Madison team and
an outstanding Old Dominion
team. It will take a total team effort
at the end of the season for both
teams to win.
So, to prepare these teams for
the final stretch of the season they
will take their annual Christmas
trip down to the sunny and warm
state of Florida. From December 30
to the 9th of January, they will be
training with just about every
Division I, II, and III school in the
country.
They will be using the facilities
at North County Fools in North
Palm Beach. Their schedule down
there will not be one of rest and
relaxation, as they will be heading
down to Florida to push themselves
to the brink of exhaustion and then
a little bit further to attain their
goals.
Swimming from 9-12 in the
morning and again from 4-6 in the
evening these Pirates will cover up
to 14,000 meters a day Though the
purpose of this trip is to be training
for the remainder of the season it is
so much more. Coach Kobe's
concentration will mainly be
focused on two things.
"Great conditioning and to
become closer as a team Kobe
said.
Coming together as a team is a
very important part of any
championship caliber team. So
much is emphasized on pure talent
these days that a lot of people
overlook the importance of
teamwork. That is where this trip
comes into play. It just isn't for
training and shaving a few seconds
off one's best time, but rather to
create bonds that will go a lot
further than the physical training.
The ability to know ones
teammates or to motivate one's
teammate at the right time'is often
neglected. It is these little things
that separate a champion from a
runner-up.
Both the men's and women's
teams' strengths are their depth in
all events. It is this depth that will
put these teams into that
championship position.
Both these teams, however, will
rely heavily on their senior
leadership to point them in the
right direction.
Led by Kim Field, Amanda
Atkinson, and Sandra Austin, the
women's team is looking to earn
their fourth title in as many years.
Pat Kesler, Brandon Tilly, Jim
Broughal, Mike Donavan, and Lee
Hutchens will lead the men's team
in to the season ending conference
championships.
Right now the teams goals are
simple � beat their personal best
times in every event and their final
goal will take care of itself, that is a
championship for both the men's
and women's team.
Kobe is trying for that dual
championship this season and has
good reason to be optimistic.
"Both these teams are stronger
and a lot closer than last years
teams Kobe said. "We could be
stronger in one or two more
events
The swim teams will head to Florida
shortly for thier holiday training.

As we all know there is always
room for improvement on any
outstanding team.
So after the regular season is
finished and as the Pirates prepare
for the conference tournament
they will look back on the trip to
Florida and recall all the hard work
they put in. Along with all the
hours of swimming lap after lap, all
the fun they had down there
making new friendships and
strengthening others, only focused
on their one goal of winning the
CAA as a team.
SPORTS INFORMATION DEPARTMENT
Swim teams down ACC foe, Duke
The ECU men's and women's swimming and diving team picked up
another victory Saturday as both teams downed Duke in the Pirates last dual
meet before Christmas break. On the women's side, ECU easily outdistanced
the Blue Devils 143-92, while the men defeated Duke 139-103. On the
season, the women's team is now 7-0 while the men's team improved to 6-1.
After a slow start, the men's squad picked up the pace in the middle events,
running to a 104-45 lead through eight events before holding on for the victory.
ECU was paced by senior Jim Broughal, who won the 100 free in 48.21 while
also placing second in the 200 free (1:46.18) behind teammate Lee Hutchms
(1:45.21). Broughal also helped the Pirates open the meet on the right note,
swimming the third leg of the winning 400 medley relay (3:34.06).
Also crabbing victories for the men were Matt Jabs (21.78) in the tree,
Brandon Tilley 5:57.64) in the 2001M, Richard Chen (1:57.22) in the 200 fly;
and freshman Jacob Hartseil (1:57.31) in the 200 back. Diver Ryan Baldwin
also put in a solid performance for ECU, winning both the 1- and 3-meter
diving events with scores of 231.68 and 244.20 respectively.
On the women's side, ECU came out fast and never let up as it built a 50-
point lead through nine events. Topping the list for thePirates was;S0Ph0m�te
Hollic Butler, who claimed the top spot in both the 100 free (54.16) and �W
free (1:56.55) while also anchoring the winning 400 medley relay team
(4:03.99). . . L . . . I
Along with Butler, Allison Holland pitched in with a winning performance
in the 200 back in a time of 2:09.41 after placing fourth in the 50 free (23.76).
Other Pirate winners Saturday included Kim Field (2:13.57) in the 200IM and
freshman Samantha Perry (2:24.59) in the 200 breast, which tied her team
best time this season. Like Baldwin on the men's side, Casey Dodge won both
of the diving events for the ECU women, taking the top spot on the 1-m with
a score of 238.88 and the 3-m with 246.53 points. n �
"We swam okay (Saturday), not great but good enough to win, said head
coach Rick Kobe. "Duke was ready for us but we still found a way to win.
Lately we have been working hard and not taking a rest which shows in the
times a little. But we had some good performances, especially from Broughal
and Holland. Holland's swim in the 200 back was awesome and Broughal won
the 100 free from the outside lane, which is incredible. So we have some good
things going on right now . .
The Pirates will start the final stretch of the dual meet season Jan. 17, when
it travels to take on CAA foe Richmond.

Falcons Quarterback to
stand trial on drunken
driving charge
PITTSBURGH (AP) � Atlanta
Rilcons backup quarterback Jim
Miller was ordered to stand trial on
a drunken driving charge
stemming from an accident
outside one of the city's most
heavily traveled tunnels.
Miller, a former Pittsburgh
Steeler, did not appear at a pretnal
conference
Friday before Common Pleas
Judge John Zottola. He was in
California with the Falcons, but his
attorney' agreed to the trial date of
April 27.
Miller was arrested early on
June 6 after state police found his
vehicle blocking lanes at Squirrel
Hill Tunnel.
Miller said he had consumed
three beers at a country club
earlier in the evening, according to
a criminal complaint prepared by
State Trooper John Feherjr. Feher
reported Miller smelled strongly of
alcohol and became ' indignant
and uncooperative" about taking a
sobriety test. �
A blood test performed later
indicated Miller's blood-alcohol

Jazz expects Stockton to
rejoin lineup this week
SALT LAKE CITY (AP)�All-star
point guard John Stockton is
expected to rejoin the lineup of
the Utah Jazz Monday following
an eight-week layoff due to knee
surgery, according to news reports.
The Deseret News, citing
unnamed sources within i.he Jazz
organization, reported Sunday that
Stockton's return would come a
week earlier than the team's most
optimistic estimates of even a few
days ago.
The Jazz aren't commenting
publicly, the newspaper reported,
partly because it will have to cut a
player to make room for Stockton.
Most likely it will be rookie point
guard Troy Hudson, who has been
played sparingly in eight games.
At the time of the surgery,
doctors predicted Stockton would
return in eight to 12 weeks.
Monday's game against Indiana
would mark eight weeks to the
day.
Stockton apparently injured his
left knee during the summer
break. He underwent arthroscopic
surgery to repair loose and torn
cartilage Oct. 13.

shot 49 percent.
"What we were mostly
concerned with was not letting
them stay on offense forever.
Meadows said. "We wanted to
make them work for everything
they got .
Down low, Doolcy felt his big
men Edwards and ftrters did a
good job under the baskets.
"Both of those guys did a nice
job establishing themselves in

Raphael� he had three assists, he
did a nice job of kicking the ball
back out of the post. They have
Dink down for one assist, but the
way he got he ball moving was very
important

Club Sports
continued from page 10
Josh Boucher said.
The Lacrosse club finished
their season 3-2-1. Last month
they hosted the Thanksgiving
Classic. Hosting a tournament is a
big step for ECU lacrosse.
"Lacrosse is not real popular
down here club member John
Provost said, "It was good for our
program"
Probably the most well known
club sport at ECU is Rugby. The
club's popularity is evident in the
fact that it is the only club with its
own website. This fall the club's
teams finished a combined 6-4.
This kept alive an impressive
streak of twenty-one straight
semesters with a winning record.
"We play in the spring for the
national championship. That's our
main goal said team captain
Matt Oathout.
Club sports occupy a realm free
of the pressures and obligations of
varsity athletics, but with the
competition and camaraderie
intact.
"It's everybody getting out and
playing. There is no coach.
They're not getting scholarships
Provost said. "They're playing for
the love of the game
