A want to continue to boldly revise our identity and
we have done that
That's right Pirate fans, ECU has changed its image. A new
set of word markings along with a tougher, bolder Pirate image
has been introduced and will boost the already existing ECU
logos.
While Cireenville will still shine purple and gold, and Pee
Dee will still be on the side lines at games, the new image will
be available for purchase through retailers carrying the officially
licensed merchandise. The new logo is also found at center
court of Williams Arena.
According to Chancellor Richard Eakin, the new logos
present a picture to the world about Kill's proud tradition of
excellence.
"We are showing to the world that ECU is a place that takes
second to no one Kakin said. "We deserve to be on the
national scene and hopefully these logos will help us do that
Hamrick said that as the university revises it's identity, it
cannot forget the tradition of the past at ECU.
"We believe this updated look is another step toward
establishing a nationally recognized program Hamrick said.
'As we move into the future, we are excited about these new-
markings that add so much more to our athletic program
The logos were created by a licensing program administered
by The Collegiate Licensing Company, whose members
include more than 160 colleges, universities, athletic
conferences and the NCAA.
Chris Marsiani, a representative from The Collegiate
Licensing Company, said the new logos unveil a new image
while complementing the existing mascot.
"Over the past 14 years, the market for collegiate products
has grown to a $2.5 million business Marsiani said. 'As the
market matures, competition increases. ECU has shown growth
with each vear, and we were very impressed with their
commitment to the success of these new markings
Also excited about the new image is Head football Coach
Steve Lx)gan.
"1 am tickled about this new logo and I know that the
football team is too Logan said. "We are going to wear it and
wear it with pride, and represent the university in a good
fashion

As the millennium
approaches, the ECU
campus is expanding
to meet the changing
needs of students in
an age of technology.
Projects worth a total
of 180 million dollars
are in the works.
These will hopefully
make ECU more
appealing to future
students.
"The most
challenging thing for
us was to design the
new Science and
Technology Building
said Bruce Five, Director of Facilities
Services.
This building will be 220,000 square
feet, contain three 250 person classrooms
and cost 58 million dollars. Inter-
Departmental research will be conducted
there, and Chemistry and Biology classes
will meet there. The building should be
completed in five years.
"Lab space is limited said Chancellor
Richard Eakin. "To serve students well, we
need more lab space. This Science and
Technology Building should do the trick. It
will be one and a half times the size of the
Rec Center
Improvements will also be made on the
Speight Building. In some classrooms,
professors will be able to use laptops to
project computer information onto
overhead screens, providing a more
efficient teaching tool than transparencies
or chalkboards.
A new dining hall for West Campus is in
the works, and renovations on the old Jones
Cafeteria are planned. The renovated
cafeteria will include a coffee shop and
karaoke.
"We want to offer the students an
alternative place to hang out on Saturday
nights said Five.
New parking lots are proposed for the
north end of Ficklen Stadium. This will
provide 600 new parking spaces. Existing
gravel parking lots will be paved and have
emergency phones and lights added.
Finally, renovations on Jarvis and Jones
Halls are planned. Jarvis will receive new air
conditioning and more modern bathrooms,
while Jones will get a new sprinkler system
and have air conditioning added. Belk will
disappear altogether, to make way for an
extension of College Hill Drive, which will
intersect Fourteenth Street.

Frocrastinatots never fear, there is

the week of Jan. 10 in the One

Located in the Wight Building
inside the Student Stores, the
One Card office is busy as people
cram in to get their new card.
Office hours are Monday through
Friday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Extended
hours will run Jan. 16-19 from 8
a.m. to 7 p.m.
For those students who have
already had their picture taken,
cards can be picked up at their
neighborhood service office or in
the lobby of the Wright Building
outside the Wright Place.
"ECU One Cards for students
who live in resident halls have
been delivered to their

service desk for their dorm said
Jennifer Sutton, director of the
One Card program.
The One Card system replaces
the old ID cards and activity
stickers. Freshmen received One
Cards from the get-go.
One incentive to get a new card
is that checks will not be accepted
in the Student Stores without a
One Card.
The One Card also replaces the
Debitek card; it will work in
vending machines and serve as a
meal card and a library card.
Dependent cards will be made
free of charge through Jan. 16.
After that, there will be a $10 fee.
The replacement cost, if one
should misplace their new card, is
$15.
The Gold Key Account is a
purely optional function. This
serves to make life a little easier
for Pirates campuswide.
"The Gold Key Account can be
used at various areas on campus
including the library, Student
Recreational Center, Student
Health Center, East Carolinian
and Mendenhall said Sutton.
Campus officials hope to
develop the One Card for use with
campus mailing services and as a
replacement for dorm keys.

Officials hope yearly celebrations
will bring a feeling of tradition and
pride in the history of ECU.
"We want all the student

Mike Dorscy, head of the
Founder's Day Committee. "Even
though we are not going to cancel
classes, we urge faculty to bring
students to the celebration. It's
important for students and faculty
to embrace the tradition of
founder's day
This is more feasible than last
year, when the anniversary
celebration lasted for a week
instead of this year's festivities,
which will be wrapped up in a day.

Old buildings and rising enrollment signal the
need for new facilities on the ever-growing
ECU campus.
Projects totalling $180 million in value
hope to ensure that ECU stands in front
rather than failing behind. �
"The most challenging thing for us to
design was the new Science and Technology

facilities services.
A building that will cost $58 million, be
220,000 square feet in size, and contain three
classrooms that will seat 250 students each
hopes to be ECU's biggest step yet into the
age of technology.
This facility is planned to reach
completion within the next five years. It will
hold classes for chemistry, freshman biology
and areas for inter-departmental research.
"Lab space is limited said Chancellor
Richard Eakin. "To serve students well, we
need more lab space. This Science and Tech
Building should do the trick. It will be one-
and-a-half times the size of the
Rec center
The Speight Building will also
be taking a technological step
forward, rour or five rooms will
be advanced in a program called
the "Smart Classroom This
plan allows a professor to plug
their laptop into the podium,
thereby connecting them into a
large screen at the front of the
room. This saves time on the
chalkboard, as well as making the
lecture more accessible to
students taking the class in other
parts of the world, via the internet. Belk has
also petitioned to receive this type of
technology.
Dining services are expected to receive a
face lift in the near future. With the addition
of a new dining hall on the West end of
campus and a renovation project for the old
cafeteria below Jones Residence Hall,
students will have more dining options on
campus.
The West end dining hall will replace the

Parking problems are also in
the vision of ECU planners
with proposed lots at the
north end of Ficklen Stadium
and at Reade Circle. The
Ficklen lot will be provide an
additional 600 spaces, while'
the Reade project will be a
renovation of an existing lot, by turning it
from dirt to pavement and adding lights and
blue phones.
Renovations and a proposed plan for
College Hill will change the way students live
on campus. Jarvis will be totally renovated by
adding air conditioning and modernized
bathrooms. Jones wilt be air conditioned and a
new sprinkler system is slated to be installed.
One of the biggest plans for College Hill will
be the continuation of College Hill Drive so it
will pass through where Belk Hall currently
stands and connect to 14th Street.

experience academic difficulties.
ECU categorizes academic
difficulty on three levels: academic

academic probation includes

New technology, programs, planning may
bring classification upgrade for ECU
CRAIG D. ft A MET
STAFF WRITER
New departments, degrees and
programs proposed for ECU's
future could make the university
one of the highest ranking
institutions in the North Carolina
university system.
The Science and Technology
Department, along with ECU's
Sports Medicine program, will be
among those most affected.
New technology in the biology

discuss scholastic issues. Instructors
teach students efficient and
productive study techniques in a
particular area of study Joyner said
Many departments offer tutorial
programs. Computer aids, academic
enhancement workshops, outreach
programs, and individual
conferences are additional sources
for students experiencing academic
difficulty.
Some academic programs are
optional: however, academic
warning or academic probation
workshops are mandatory. Students
are required to attend an Academic
Success Workshop and to meet
with their academic adviser.
Students are notified through
the mail that "failure to attend one
of these workshops will result in
your record being tagged and you
will be unable to adjust your
schedule or register for further
courses
"Non-mandatory workshops are
offered throughout the semester to
everyone. There's no charge, but
very few people consistently attend
the meetings. Students can't take
advantage of the program if they
don't come said Dorothy H.
Muller, dean of the office of
undergraduate studies.
During mandatory meetings,
students are asked to complete a
self-assessment form. This form
lists the most common factors
contributing to academic
dilemmas. Over the last three
years, the four most reported
reasons for academic difficulty have
been the following: lack of
academic motivation, poor class
attendance, poor test-taking skills,
and an inadequate balance between
extracurricular activities and class
work.
"Poor academic performance is
not always the result of a lack of
knowledge. Academic transition
and occupational uncertainty can
make college an extremely stressful
period. W; encourage students to
objectively look at their strengths
and weaknesses. Through
individual conferences and personal
discussions we hope to guide
students in the right direction
Joyner said.
"The university recognizes the
importance of advising conferences
between advisers and students
Muller said.
The adviser survey form is one of
many methods used to help
improve the overall college
experience by improving
advisement. Student participation
is absolutely necessary, however,
only 15 percent of the student
population complete and return
their forms.
"The office of undergraduate
studies strongly encourages
students to complete their adviser
survey form. Another form will be
released in March. This form can
be completed in person or on the
web. Either way, student
participation is completely
confidential. We hope more
students will take this opportunity
to voice their opinion said Muller.
The adviser survey form is not
the only method used to increase
academic performance. The office
of undergraduate studies offers
grade calculation instruction, tips
for college success, academic
assistance resources and academic
support centers.
"I encourage students to use the
office of undergraduate studies as
frequently as possible. Come in for
an individual conference and
discuss your goals with a qualified
staff member. Although we are
here to assist the student txxfy sdf-
awareness tends to be the most
valuable teacher. Be honest and
truthful with yourself. Know your
limitations and build on your
strengths Joyner said.

ECU also has one of the
highest ranking teams for Coastal
Resource Management. Scientists
from all over the eastern seaboard
come to ECU to compare notes on
the growing problems of
overpopulation in coastal areas and
the burden it puts on estuaries.
"This type of research is
crucial, and people are coming
here to do it Eakin said.
By 1998 ECU hopes to have a
PhD program in medical
biophysics as well. Other
departments that will gain new
PhD programs in the near future
include the following: sociology,
geology, biology, and the
department of marine and coastal
services.
With the addition of so many
new programs and degrees, EC I'
will move up to a Doctorate II
level. This type of classification
can only be reached by holding a
sufficient number of PhDs over a
period of time.
"This new
classification

said. "I'm
proud to say
that at this
point in

� continued to be the most
prevalent one this fall. In fact,
though it may seem that theft
would be easier for thieves in the
spring and summer when
windows are left open and
students get careless in the heat,
Umphlet said crime actually
declines around that time.
"Fill semesters tend to be a
little more open for crime because
you have a lot of new students
who might not take precautions
like they normally would
Umphlet said.
Umphlet cited examples of
students forgetting to lock dorm
room doors, allowing people they
don't know well to be in their
rooms when they are not there,
and neglecting to use a bike lock,
(or using a cheap one that's easy
to break into) as some of the chief
causes of theft on campus.
The key is to make yourself a
difficult target, Umphlet warns.
uIn order to avoid becoming a
victim of anv crime be aware of
your surroundings. Go to
automated tellers during the
day, or with a friend if going at
night, secure yout items, and
don't leave anything in your car
Umphlet said.
Though the university police
have yet to receive their official
figures for last yeat, tijey are
confident that the department
did its share to keep crime to a
minimum on campus last year,

officials said. Through crime
prevention programs, programs in
residence halls and maintaining a
constant patrol, the department
seeks to keep everyone on
campus safe and careful.
"Try to make it so hard to
target you that the thief will go
elsewhereand trust your
instincts. If you feel suspicious,
give us a call Umphlet said.
Online
crime
reporting
site not
used by
students
Rewards available
for tips leading to
arrest, conviction
Holly Harris
NEWS WRITER
ECU has a crime tips service that
can be reached via any computer,
but this service, however, seems to
be a well-kept secret.
Though the site can be found
through ECU's own web page it
has only been used one time in the
nearly eight months that it has
been up.
"It hasn't worked too well, said
Detective Mike Jordan of Campus
Mice. "When we put it up in
June we had someone hit it, and
nothing since
Oddly enough the one hit the
page received came on June 10
last year, only three days after the
page appeared, and before the
university had even publicized its
presence. The tip received was
drug information that was
outdated because the students
involved left in May. But Jordan
says any information anyone may
have about a crime is needed and
would be useful.
"The main thing about doing it
the computerized tip line is
people don't want to come in.
When people can just type, it's
anonymous Jordan said.
Jordan hopes the tip site, which
was modeled after an innovative
Krogram at the University of
ichmond, will see more use in
the future. There hasn't even
been any prank hits or misleading
information � just the single hit
in June.
One incentive to lure students
into using the site is the possibility
of getting money through the
Crime Stoppers program. Crime
Stoppers, an anonymous phone
line in which the ECU police
department participates along
with the Greenville police
department, provides payments
for tips that lead to an arrest and
conviction.
Each time a user visits the site
they will be asked for their
anonymous information; leaving a
name, however, is an option.
Jordan is the only person who
checks the site, so all information
given is highly confidential.
In the future each person who
uses the site who will be assigned
a tip number that will flash on the
usct's screen. This number can be
used to contact Jordan with more
relevant information or as an
identification number for money
award purposes. For now, though,
the line is still lacking that feature.
and anyone who reports
information is welcome to call the
police department anonymously or
write again to give further
information or track the impact of
their tip.
"The big thing is that it s there
for anyone to use; if you have any
information, please let us know
Jordan said.
To get the word out, the police
department plans to publish
pamphlets, give out information
about the site at all freshman
orientations and put links to the
crime tips page in more noticeable
and accessible places.
To reach the page you can find
it under the police pages or at the
following address: http:www.

The East Carolinian
ECU crime records more accessible
than other campus departments
Jennifer Vic k e r s
STFK WRITER
ECU'S crime records are more
accessible than most other campus
police departments.
"We are a police department.
Our records fall under a records
law said Chief Thomas C.
Younce. assistant director of the
ECU Mice Department.
ECU follows a public records
act, unlike other universities
which follow the Campus Security
Act.
"This is much more open than
what falls under the CSA Younce
said.
The Campus Security Act, a
national law passed in 1990, is
used on campuses that receive
federal funds. This act states the
requirements that campus police
must follow. ECU is an exception
and follows the Public Records
Act.
"Arrest reports are a public
record. We have a 911 system and
all of our calls are recorded. Any
arrest is public record. The name,
address and sex is available to the
public. The name and address of a
complaining witness is public
record. However, criminal
investigation is not a public
record. They have to be released
by court order Younce said.
The Public Record Law claims
that the name or address of a
complaining witness can be
withheld if the information is
"reasonably likely to pose a threat
to the mental health, physical
health, or personal safety of the
complaining witness or materially
compromise a continuing or future
criminal investigation or criminal
intelligence operation
"We are much more open than
what is required by the Campus

Security Act. There is an
amendment in Congress, but it
won't affect how police
departments handle crime
records Younce said.
The Public Record Law states:
"Records of criminal investigations
conducted by public law-
enforcement agencies or records of
criminal intelligence information
compiled by public law
enforcement agencies are not
public records as defined by CJ.S.
132-1. Records of criminal
investigations conducted by public
law enforcement agencies or
records of criminal intelligence
information may be released by-
order of a court of competent
jurisdiction
ECU's Police Department is no
different than the Greenville
Police Department when it cotncs
to handling crime records. The
only difference is that ECU is
involved with crimes that occur on
campus.
"What we're reporting occurs in
�ur jurisdiction, which is our
property of ECU. A crime off-
campus isn't in our records
Younce said.
The public records law is
number 132-1.4, and is located in
chapter 132 of the North Carolina
General Statutes. The Campus
Security Act can be looked up on
the internet at this address:

While the Pirate we all know as Pee Dee will remain near and dear in our hearts forever,ECU
has changed its image.
Although university coiors will remain purple and gold and Pee Dee the Pirate will still cheer
with the fans at games, updated word markings and symbols will boost the already existing
ECU marks to provide a tougher, sleeker university image.
The newer logos and markings do a fine job in promoting a successful future for ECU
athletics. The tougher, bolder image is the athletic department's effort to present the
university as bigger, better, and stronger than its opponents.
These are by far the most creative and original of all of the images ECU has seen in it's
history, so even if you are one who doesn't like change, it is more than likely that you will still
be impressed.
The older marks and logos will still be used; the newer ones are a mere revision of the past.
ECU has worked its way onto the national scene with Pee Dee and the older logos, so to
discontinue using them would be unreasonable.
In support of the athletic department's efforts to bring new logos to ECU, as students,
faculty and staff, we must show our appreciation and approval by purchasing the new
merchandise, available through several local retailers.
The logos, designed with the intention of carrying ECU into a new year also a new century,
can only be successful with the support of its student body and community. It is up to you,
Pirate fans.
You can still wear all of those purple and gold shirts that you have collected throughout the
years, you can still come to the games with a black patch over you right eye, and you can still
�tailgate before the football games (God forijid if that were ever taken away!) But please, wear
your new logo and wear it with pride. Join the university's effort to show the world that we are
indeed up there with the best of collegiate athletics and academics.
All retailers of ECU merchandise will be carrying the new logo, including Overton's and
rralmart, and of course. Dowdy Student Stores. � .
LETTER
to the Editor
Do your part: vote in upcoming elections
;On Thursday, Jan. 8, as I flipped
'�back and forth between news
broadcasts, I saw the excitement in
�aH the peoples' eyes as the new
il ECU logos were being introduced.
I jThis event even brought a smile to
b Coach: Steve Logan's face �
H hopefully the Pepto Bismol is no
II longer a part of his life.
It seems as though every new day
.brings more excitement, knowing
, that we will always be a part of this
great institution. Right before our
eyes we are being primed for
national exposure � exposure that
will only bring more respect in the
future. We have paid our dues to the
collegiate gods and now is our time
to enjoy the success that we have
j iworked so hard for.
Thanks to the greatest
chancellor the university has ever
seen, the best football coach in the
country and the most competent
supporting cast ever assembled, we
can one day return to our homes
around the country, grinning from
- Jear to ear. Wow, I love this place!
So what is it that students can do
to make the university better? Vote
in this semester's SGA elections:
that is what we can do. By helping
SGA to reach our goal of 5,000
voters this semester, we, as
students, can show we are doing our
part in making ECU the best it can
be. It is apparent that voting on a
statewide basis is very poor. You do
not have to have biochemistry indcr
your belt to figure out that sintering
needs to be done. You do, however,
have to care how $165,000 of your
student fees is being appropriated.
We here at ECU have an
opportunity to rise above the rest in
yet another area by simply voting in
this semester's elections. If we can
focus our attention on putting the
right people in office, our university
will continue to make its way to the
top. Yes, we, as students, are in
control of our own futures. The
responsibility this time falls on us as
students. The faculty and staff have
been doing their part to increase
ECU's appeal. Now our job is to
vote and make ECU proud.
One week prior to election day,
the legislators of the SGA will have
information on every candidate so
we can make the best decision when
voting. There will be a table in front
of the Student Stores, much like
that encountered at Homecoming.
Pictures, class and a list of issues for
each candidate will be supplied.
It has been a tremendous year in
the legislature meeting; almost
every position has been filled with
dependable students. We now need
your help in making the Student
Government Association is the best
it can be. As I stated earlier, we here
at ECU have an incredible
opportunity to set the pace for voter
participation among every school in
the UNC system. All we have to do
is fill in a few circles. Help us take
pride in saying "GO PIRATES

BERGMAN
Watch out; here come predictions
1998 will bring more
warning about the
millennium bug
Another Kennedy
will die
l98isan election year
we have less than a year to
ban one song: "1999
Seeing as how everybody else
made predictions for the coming
year; I figure I might as well use my
psychic powers to see into the
coming year. After hours of
meditation and a few pots of coffee,
I started having visions� or
delusions, whichever.
1998 will bring more warning
about the millennium bug. The oh-
so-smart computer programmers
thought they had solved every
problem. We can watch movies with
dinosaurs, see the Titanic sink and
get a 3-D graphical interpretation of
how O.J. supposedly committed a
couple of murders. But we can not
get a computer to add past ninety-
nine? Brilliant guys, just brilliant.
Another Kennedy will die. Given
this family's track record, I would
seriously consider giving myself up
for adoption if I were one of them.
98 is an election year, so here are
some of my election predictions.
The person with the most votes will
win the election. I think one of
these people might be Geraldine
Ferraro. She has an excellent
chance of winning. If she does not,
she can always go back to appearing
in Pepsi ads and TV shows.
I have a good feeling that the
Democrats will pick up a few seats
in the Senate and the House; call it
a gut feeling.
The Republicans will be running
on a cut taxes platform, especially
around here. Eyeing a budget
surplus, the Republicans will
continue with their short-sighted
vision and try to buy votes by
promising to return the money to
the people. Never mind the social-
security system is falling apart like
the Mir. Forget about the
"The only difference between the expression of an opinion
and an incitement in the narrower sense is the speaker's
enthusiasm tor the result. Eloquence may set fire to
reason
exorbitant debt our government
owes; we want tax breaks.
Once again, the Republicans will
be running on the family values and
Christian Coalition platform.
Eimiry values, I hope you know
what they are. Family values are
when you ask your wife for a divorce
while she is in the hospital under
going cancer treatment (see Newt
Gingrich).
The Democrats will also be
preaching tax cuts, but only because
the Republicans are doing the same.
Child cars and schools seem to be
on the agenda for this year. We have
to do something for die kids after
we took away their parents' support
under the welfare reform legislation.
just a reminder we have less than
a year to ban one song. Now, I am
the last person on the face of the
Earth who feels we must ban any
song, book, web page or thought.
With this song 1 am willing to make
an exception. The song is
performed by the idiot formerly
known as Prince. The song "1999"
will played relentlessly on the radio
for one year, 365 days, 52" weeks,
31,536,000 seconds.
Oh, and as for my New Year's
resolution, I am still trying to keep
1994's resolution: I resolved not to
make any more resolutions.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Supreme Court Justice, 1924
�LETTER
Dining Hall employees should be stary
There are many things that go on
in the dining halls that many people
do not know about. Many people
just come in and get their lunch or
dinner without noticing the many
unhealthy practices that some of the
employees of the dining hall have.
These things need to be brought to
the attention of everyone in order
for the problem to be solved.
On many instances, I have been
in the cafeteria and noticed these
unsafe practices take place. There
are particular "repeat offenders"
who always seem to be doing these
unhealthy things.
One particular employee, who
shall remain nameless, has served
me food without protective gloves
on several instances. This is a health
risk to everyone he serves and it
must be stopped. The simple task
of wearing gloves and using the
proper, clean serving equipment
can save many people from potential
sickness which could occur due to
the spread of germs. This employee,
as observed by myself as well, has
also contaminated food and the
utensil he was using to prepare the
food.
On this occasion, the employee
took a spatula and raked it onto the
side of a nearby trash can. Then he
immediately proceeded to use the
very same spatula to prepare and
serve food. This, to me, seems to be
something worthy of attention, not
to mention it is very disgusting.
These instances, as described
above, and many that were not
mentioned, all took place in Todd
Dining Hall; but the same sort of
things most likely occur in the other
dining hails as well. I filed a
suggestion card about these
instances and gave it to the manager
of Todd Dining Halt Some
improvements have been made, but
only a few. I feel it necessary for ail
of the people who eat in the dining
halls to know that these things
happen right under their noses, and
hope that there can be something
done about it if more people are
aware that these things go on.

Every new year finds students anticipating a
new semester and athletic season. While
students pack the stands and await the next
game of 1998, many know little about past
athletes "Ho bw? played or FCIT.
The ECU swimming team has come a long
wav over four coaches and 44 years. It began as
a men's only sport in 1953 and stayed that way
until the addition of the women's team in
1977. Nephi Jorgenson was the swimming
team's first coach.
The 1953-54 season was short and
unremarkable. It�and Jorgensons tenure as
coach�ended after only one victory and four
losses. Rav Martinez became the.beadcoach.in
1954 and began to build what would became
an impressive swimming program.
jorgenson's time spent as coach was marked
by both notable seasons and struggling ones.
Martinez coached the Pirates to the NAIA
National Championships in 1957 and 1959. In
1962, his team was NCAA College Division
Runners-Up. In 1967, Martinez was replaced
by Ray Scharf and inducted into the East
Carolina Athletics Hall of Fame in 1979. He
ended his career as ECU's swimming coach
with a record of 62 victories and 69 defeats.
The swimming program was expanded to
include women when Scharf s was time spent
as coach. Scharf's swimming team broke even
for three of his first four seasons as head coach.
In 1971, they had a 7-5 season, beginning a
nine-season winning streak that would only be
broken in 1980, when the swimming team had
a 2-5 season. Two years later, Rick Kobe would
succeed Scharf as the head coach for both the
men's and women's swimming teams. Scharf
had 113 total victories and 87 losses during his
time at ECU.Kobe has been the head coach for
men's and women's swimming since 1982.
Since then, he has led them to victory after
victory. After fifteen years at ECU, he has
coached the swimming team to an
unprecedented level. He has recorded 245
victories and 96 losses and, this year, the
women's team is looking toward winning a

.Aquatic Center were updated in 1982 and an
eight-lane Colorado electric timing system was
added. The touch-sensitive timer has an
accuracy of .005 seconds, more or less
eliminating ties.
East Carolina's football team first appeared
in a bo" i" lQ2 ��" rhev were known a rc
East Carolina College Pirates. They tost the
Lions Bowl to Clarion College 13-0 and then
were beaten bv Morris-Harvey, 12-0, in the
1954 Elks Bowi. The Pirates made three bowl
appearances in the 1960's and carried trophies
away from all three. They defeated
Northeastern 27-6 in the 1963 Eastern Bowl
before appearing in the Tangerine Bowl twice.
ECC trailed the 1964 game against
Massachusetts 13-6 until the fourth quarter,
when a touchdown and a two-point conversion
snagged East Carolina their second bowl
victory. Having shown crowds their skill on the
field, the Pirates returned to the Tangerine
Bowl in 1965, crushing Maine in a 31-0
blowout.
Unfortunately, that would be the last time
forl3 years that the Pirates would appear in a
bowl game.
The Pirates traveled to Shrcveport,
Louisiana in 1978 to play Louisiana Tech in the
Independence Bowl. Some things had changed
about the Pirates in the interim, most notably
East Carolina's change from a college to a
universitv, but one thing didn't change: the
qualitv of their football. ECU beat Louisiana
Tech in a 35-13 rout. Unfortunately, it would
once again be over a decade before the Pirates
would appear in a bowl.
The 1990's have been a landmark decade
for ECU's football team. The Pirates have
appeared in three bowls so far, won two of
them, and endured a lengthy expansion of
Dowdv-Rcklen stadium. In 1992, the Pirates
received their first bowl bid in fourteen years.
They plaved NC State at the Peach Bowl and
won, 37-34. Two vears later, they appeared in
the St. Jude Libertv Bowl and were shut out by
Illinois, 30-0. In 1995, the Pirates returned to
the Libertv Bowl and defeated Stanford 19-13
in a game won by Chad Holcomb's four field
goals. ECU's

Ficklen
Memorial
Stadium.
Chancellor Leo
Jenkins
announced
plans for ECC's
own stadium in
1961. After a
year, the school
had raised
$283,387 to go
towards the
stadium, though
they had
originally oniy
planned to raise
$200,000. The stadium was
dedicated in 1963 and ECC
celebrated with a 20-10 victory
over Wake Forest. Ficklen was
President of the E.B. Ficklen
Tobacco Company of Greenville
and founder of the Ficklen
Foundation, an institution to
provide financial aid for ECC's
students. After the 1974 season,
the aging light poles were
replaced with a scries of six
towers. Before the 1978 season
opened, an expansion increased
seating capacirv from 20,000 to
35,000, making'Rcklcn Memorial
Stadium the third largest in North
Carolina. The S2.5 million raised
for the expansion also made the
construction of the press box and
scoreboard possible. In 1994, Ron
and Marv Ellen Dowdy presented
ECU with a gift of $1 million,
which went towards the
expansion of the stadium. After
n"ieroMs dows and difTSrultws
with construction, the expansion
was completed and the renamed
Dowdv-Ficklen Stadium now
seats 48,000 peop'te.
ECU's men's basketball
program began in 1931. The
program was in some disarray for
many vears. Until Howard Porter
became head coach in 1947, no coach stayed
for longer than three years. The team's record
was erratic. A winning season wtjuld" be
followed by a losing season, and vice versa.
Porter stayed at East Carolina for 12 years
without a losing season. Twice, Porter coached
the Pirates to first place in North State
Conference.
ECU's basketball team acheived national
prominence in 1993, when the Pirates took
center stage in their own Cinderella story. The
Pirates entered the Richfood-Colonial
Tournament as the seventh seed, but shocked
all when thev proceeded to plow through the
opposition. ECU first upset second ranked Old
Dominion, 73-67, and went on to defeat the
sixth seed, UNC Wilmington, 55-50. The
Pirates took their rightful place at the top of
the Colonial Athletic Association after a 54-49
victory over first ranked James Madison.
The Pirates went on to the NCAA
tournament for the first time since 1972. Their
first opponent was the No. 1 ranked North
Carolina Tarheels. The Tarheels, who would go
on to win the national championship, defeated
the Pirates 85-65. However, during the brief
moment the spotlight was on East Carolina,
they were able to win respect for the way they
handled the Tarheel defense.
Lady Pirate basketball was begun in 1969
and, under the direction of Head Coach
Catherine Bolton, had seven straight winning
seasons. Bolton coached the Lady Pirates to
victorv in the 1973 AIAW Region II
Tournament. In 1978, Bolton was replaced by-
Cathy Andruzzi, who went without a losing
season until her last one, in 1984. Under
Andruzzi, the Ladv Pirates won the 1984
ECAC Tournament. The present coach for the
Lady Pirates, Anne Donovan, began her career
as head coach in 1995 and has just begun her
third season.
ECU's Pirates have come a long way since
they began, and have grown with the school.
Now is a particularly exciting time to be a
Pirate fan, with an athletic program that is
beginning to receive national attention.
Decisive bowl victories and the boost ESPN
coverage has given ECU is helping the Pirates
earn what they have wanted all along: respect.

Big South leaders in
search of season repeat

L. J
Lady
Pirates listed again as top
conference team
JEREMY ANDERSON
SENIOR WRITER
Lady Pirate softball coach Tracey Kee has a right to be
optimistic about the upcoming season. Despite losing
four kev starters, the Pirates are picked to be one of the
top teams in the Big South Conference.
The Pirates will be hard pressed to top last seasons
performance, which included a school record 49 wins en
route to the Big South regular season championship and
a second place tournament finish.
Kee, 1997 Big South Coach of the Year, will once again
look to junior Isonette Polonius to lead the young club,
which only boasts five upperctassmen. Polonius was an
All-Conference selection last year and led the Lady
Pirates in home runs.
"She was our all-everthing player last year, Kee said.
The main reason the Lady Pirates are so highly
favored to return to the top of the conference may be
their pitching staff. The Pirates added freshman
pitcher Lisa Paganini to a bullpen, which includes
sophomore Denise Reagan and seniors Jami Bendle and
Christi Valevich. . .
"We are loaded with pitchers. We probably have two
more pitchers than anyone else in the conference Kee
said. � , c ,
The Ladv Pirates will find their first real test of the
season with'their season opener in Chapel Hill against
ACC opponent North Carolina on February 14th.
"That game will be a good judge of where we are as a
team Kee said.
The Pirates home opener will be the Pirate Classic,
lasting from February 27 through March 1, here in
Greenville. The Pirates will host UNC-Greensboro,
UNC-Chapel Hill, Winthrop, Coastal Carolina,
Charleston Southern, and UNC-Wilmington, all of
which will be double headers.
"I am very excited about the season. We have some
highly talented kids. We are just lacking some NCAA)
Division I game experience Kee said.

Track and field teams strive for higher goals
Focus lies on
program's future
STEPHEN SCHR.AMM
SENIOR WRITER
The ECU Men's and Women's
track teams enter this season
hoping to improve on last year's
successes. However, the
similarities end there. The
women's team has strategically
shuffled personnel in an effort to
make a championship caliber line-
up for future seasons. For the
men's team the future is now.
They hope their stable of talented
sprinters will carrv them to new
levels in 1998.
In 1997, the ECU men's track
team showed that they compete
on a higher level than any other
team in the school.
"We qualified for the NCAA's,
we set a school record for the
4x400 relay. I think we had a good
season said men's head coach
Bill Carson.
With most of last year's squad
intact, the outlook for 1998 is
promising.
"This year we have a lot of
potential Carson said, "They're
all back

time to football.
The football team gained
Davis, but lost Ramondo North,
who decided to compete
exclusively for Carson and ECU
track.
"Ramondo can be great at
anything he wants to do Carson
said, "he will be a great addition
The Pirates also welcome a
transfer from St. Augustine's,
Lynn Stewart. The team also has
a strong recruiting class which
features Tyrone Dozier, the state
quarter mile champ; the state
100m record holder, Chris
Justice; Georgia's Vaughn
Johnson and Goldsboro's, John
Twitty.
The Pirates will face stiff
competition from their
conference' opponents.
"The CAA is probably the best
its ever been. UNC-W has done
well. George Mason is always
strong. James Madison recruited
for their weaknesses and William
and Mary is always good Carson
said.
In addition to the CAA, the
Pirates will compete in a series of
prestigious outdoor meets against
teams from around the country.
In recent years the program
relied on their strong tradition of
excellent sprinters to carry the
bulk of the scoring load. This
strategy hindered the team when
competing against the more well
rounded CAA teams, but was an
advantage at the higher profile
meets.
"I made the decision years ago
that it would be better if we ran
this program as an elite team and
not as a conference team
Carson said.
"I look for us to be in the top
four in big meets Carson said.
Competing well at the big
meets is what defines a'
successful program.
"We compete on a higher level
than any other sport in the
school. Wo compete head to head
with the bi; conferences and we
compete equally Carson said.
The EC! women's team will
enter the 1998 season without
many of last year's main
contributors. Among those
absent are 1997 rookie of the year
Rasheca Barrow; winner of the
hammer throw at the Penn
Relays Michelle Clayton and
Shauntae Hill. All three were
redshirted as part of Head Coach
"Choo" Justice's plan to stock a
future team for a conference title.
"Two years from now we will
be realty set to make a run at the
conference championship.
Leana Anding of the women's track team will compete in the triple jump and the long
jump this season.
PHOTO COURTESY OF SPORTS INFORMATION
Probably in a better position than
we would be in this year Justice
said.
Though the season will be run
with an eye towards the future, to
label this season a rebuilding year
would be a mistake. The 1998
Pirate squad features veterans,
Missy Johnson, a school record
holder in the hurdles; sprinters
Kai Eason and Nicky Goins. Also
returning is former conference
high jump champion, Saundra
Teel.
This year's team also features a
trio of talented freshman. Kiona
Kirkpatrick began her career at
ECU by breaking the school
record in the 400 meters at a meet
in mid-December.
Joining Kirkpatrick is fellow
freshman, Mashari Williams.
"I'm really excited about her
Justice said, "She's going to do
some great things before she's
done
Rounding out the threesome is
Michelle Clayton's little sister,
Margaret.
She's picking up right where
Michelle left off" Justice said.
Teel, who was sidelined last
year with a knee injury, will
compete in the pentathalon as
well as the high jump this season.
This is due to a strategy employed
by coach Justice.
"We're looking for ways that we
can take the girls and stretch and
get more points out of them
Justice said. "We've got to take
advantage of our athletic ability in
having our girls do more than one
or two events
The team's changes in
personnel and strattgy have not
affected their original goals.
"We want to try and get as
many girls to the Eastern
Championships as we can, and try
and get girls to the NCAA" Justice
said.
However the team's main goal
remains the conference crown.
Though more serious bids for a
conference crown lay in the future
for the women's team, the 1998
Pirates should not be counted out.
"This year is going to be a lot of
growing and learning, I still think
that we can have our best season
ever Justice said.

he NCM justified in its policy
deny media credentials to
advertisers of sports wagenng?
Tracy Lauback, a
sophomore
communuations major
who hopes to pursue a
career in journalism
Athletes' rights are what
matter the most
TRACY M. LAVBACH
SPORTS EDITOR
The NCAA is attempting to enforce that wagering be
eliminated from the sports scene, a policy seen justifiable and
reasonable to any person who really knows what athletics are
all about. While manv editors argue that the NGWs policy to
denv media credentials to advertisers of gambling is a
violation of their rights as stated in the First Amendment
others, such as myself, are more concerned for the rights ot
the athletes. .
For the sake of those who have forgotten, giving one team
the edge over another is not what should be happening in the
world of sports. It is onlv fair that each team heads into a
game with a 5050 chance of coming out with a win, and
because of tout sheets and sports wagenng, that is not
alwavs the case. .
Whether an athlete is sending a ball to the hoop at the
buzzer, rushing 100 yards to the endzone for a game-ending
touchdown victory, or slamming a home run in the ninth
inning of a championship game, sports is about teamwork,
commitment and dedication�not betting.
Because sports wagering is not only illegal (in every state
except for Nevada) but also a violation of the standards set
forth bv NCAA officials, the participating media should be
willing to forfeit tout sheet advertising in exchange for media
credentials thev see necessary. In situations in which such
media refuses to cooperate, the NCAA has every right to
refuse the release of press material �r
Policies and standards are established by the NCAA based
on what is in the best interest of the athletes. How fair
would it be to knowingly allow circumstances to exist that
could possiblv effect game results? While some would argue
that such bias would never occur on a field or court others
would argue that politics have affected calls and final scores
in the past, and without regulation to prohibit such violations
of integrity, will persist to be a problem in the future.
By taking action, the NCAA is demonstrating it s strong
value for honesty. Each game can have only one winner and
as an information source,
advertisers need to sit back and let the crown go to the
one who earned it fair and square.
New baseball coach has high hopes for team
LeClair brings
successful style to
ECU Athletics
Paul Kaplan
SENIOR WRITER
After 29 wins and 27 losses last
season the ECU men's baseball
team has a new head coach. Coach
Keith LeClair came to ECU from
Western Carolina for many
reasons, highest on his list was
because of ECU's history and
tradition of a strong baseball team.
"ECU's tradition of great
baseball teams attracted me. ECU
has had a rich tradition of baseball,
which I hope will come back
LeClair said.
"East Carolina presented me
with an opportunity to be a part of
a top 25 team and have a chance to
possiblv go to the college World
Series. I really like the location
and growth of the school and also
the academic standards are a
quality to any student athlete
LeClair added.
LeClair played at Western
Carolina University for four years,
starting his last two years. After
college, LeClair played fcK the
Braves organization at the "A" ball
level and also played a short while
with the Giants organization. After
LeClair's career in professional
baseball was over he went to work
as an assistant coach at Western
Carolina for the '8990 season.
Then, in the summer of 1991. he
was promoted to head coach of
Western Carolina. In his first
season, the team was ranked in the
top 25, went to the college World
Series and ended with a 44-21
winning record. In LeClair's next
four seasons, Western won 40 or
more games twice and in the 1994
season, he led Western Carolina to
a record breaking 45-17 winning

KEITH LECLAIR
m season. Last
year he
finished his
career at
Western
Carolina by
winning the
tournament
at Florida
State
University.
"At Western
Carolina, we
played in the
Southern
Conference and we went up
against all the big boys, similar to
the current East Carolina schedule
with the sixth toughest
conference in the nation the
Colonial Conference LeClair
said.
LeClair has many expectations
for this upcoming season.
"I expect everyone to play hard,
work harder than our opponents
and take pride in the little things
on and off the field. I believe that
if vou take care of the little things,
the big things will take care of
themselves LeClair said.
LeClair is hoping to keep with
the same type of coaching style he
has used throughout his career
and has made teams successful.
"I want my players to believe
that no matter who we play, we're
going to beat them; we're going to
compete on the highest level
possible Coach LeClair said.
"I'm really excited about this
upcoming season. The kids have
been working extremely hard and
have done everything that I have
asked. Also working with me 1

So far this season the Lady
Pirates seem to be improving. As
the season progresses they are
pulling together and trying to
improve their record from last year.
"I think we got off to a slow
start, but we pulled together and
beat Wake Forest Gillcm said. "If
we keep the same enthusiasm and
focus throughout the other games
as we did during the Wake Forest
game, we'll do fine
Donovan is hoping to pick up
where the team left off last season.
"I realty felt this was the year
that we were going to build on
what we accomplished last
season Donovan said. "I have to
honestly say that thus far we
haven't done that
After losing three key seniors
last year, the team doesn't seem
worried about replacing them. The
Lady Pirates have to replace their
leading scorer and rebounder.
"Shay Hayes is a key player
because of her experience Home
said. "She has a do- anything-to-
win attitude. We arc extremely
young and she has provided strong
leadership
Along with Hayes, sophomore
Danielle Meivin also provides
leadership.
"I think Shay is a leader
because she is a senior Gillem
said. "She is really stepping in and
getting the rebounds. Danielle is
only a sophomore, but she is sort of
the emotional leader. She will be a
great leader by her senior year
Donovan doesn't seem worried
about how the team will fill the
shoes of the lost seniors.
"I don't think we are going to
replace them Donovan said. "I
think a combination of players will
fill the points and rebounds. We
have three sophomores, two of
which are starting (Home and
Meivin) and one that comes off
the bench (Melanie Gillem) that
really let's us expand. They have
all played a number of minutes as
freshman so they come back as
very experienced sophomores

Pirates return eight
starters to the field
Paul Kaplan
shH)� WRITER
With the men's baseball team's
first game of the 1998 season
against Duke University just over
two months away, the Pirates are
beginning to come together for
another winning season.
The Pirates only lost one
starting player from last seasons
29-27 winning record. This season
eight of the nine starters are
returning and four of the starting
pitchers are back, which means
that this season, with a plethora of
experienced players returning,
thev will again be a force in the
CAA.
This season, in the captains
chair is a new head coach from
Western Carolina, Keith leClair.

Among those quality players arc
Randy Rigsby and Steve Salargo
who are coming off a great 1497
season. Coach LeClair expects the
same from them this coming
season.
"We've got good depth, and I
believe that we're going to be as
good as our defense; it's the one
thing I'm worried about LeClair
said. "()ur offense should be pretty-
good, and our pitching should be
ok. It all depends on how they
develop
The Pirates' roster includes five
seniors. 11 juniors, nine-
sophomores and ten freshmen,
making them a pretty well-
rounded team as far as age goes.
"1 believe that youth is
overblown anyway; you're only a
freshman if you think you're a
freshman; youth is not an excuse
LeClair said.
"My expectations for this
season are just to play hard one dav

"I want these guys to take care of

there are five new players who will contribute greatly to the
team this season.
Head Coach Bill Moore said, "This year's womens team is
the most talented that we've had here in a long while
It will be interesting to see how these young Lady Pirates
play as a team. With a 15-10 mark overall and a 5-3 mark in
the CAA the Lady Pirates are looking to improve. Last season,
these hard hitting Pirates were led by Anne-Birgi tte Svae and
she will most likely lead the Lady Pirates into another
successful season.
Coach Moore said, "Despite this being the most talented
team we've had here, it is also important to keep in mind that
experience goes a long way
The mens team is coming into this season with a little bit
of confidence. Last year they finished 14-11 overall and 5-5 in
the CAA. Led this season by Alomar who has done well this
fall season, finishing in fifth place in Flight One singles at the
Clemson Tiger Invitational this fall.
"Our main goal is to improve and finish in the top 3 in the
conference Moore said.
Winning the conference title will be a struggle this year
with perennial powerhouse Virginia Commonwealth
University ranked 8 in the country and looking to win the
CAA title this year. Another strong team in the conference
will be Old Dominion, who looks to finish behind VCU.

working even harder to make it back

Inventing the Abbotts
andy Turner
LIFESTYLE EDITOR
WedL are a new series of live music to
te known as a night of Hedonism
So, you find yourself sashaying
down the aisles of your local video
store, thinking you'd like to see a
movie that contained elements of
love and lust, but with a more
subtle approach than, say, Showgirls
or Edward Penishands. Fear not
befuddled one, there is hope. There
is Inventing die Abbotts, a love and lust
story set in 1950s small town
Illinois, directed by Pat O'Connor.
Inventing the Abbotts never made it
tc Purpleville theaters, but our
trusty video stores have, thankfully,
Stccdertt&f
Liv Tyler and Joaquin Phoenix get goofy in knuiting the Abbotts.

brought it to town. The film
revolves around the high class
Abbotts and the "wrong side of the
tracks" Holts. Gee, someone should
have thought of this idea before.
However, regardless of the stale
formula, the movie manages to avoid
stinksville through some great
performances and an interesting,
slow-burning plot.
Joaquin Phoenix is Doug Holt.
Dougie is low down on the stud
scale compared to his brother Jacey
(Billy Crudup), who swings it
around like it's going out of style.
Jacev sets his sights on the saucy
Abbott girls. His first conquest,
Eleanor Abbott (Jennifer Connelly),
is more than willing to do the hokey
pokey with Jaccy. But mainly she
just likes pissing daddy, Lloyd
Abbott, (Will Patron), off.
Lloyd is not going to have his
daughters mixing with the no count
Holt boys, so he ships Eleanor out of
town. But Jacey won't be denied.
He's out for revenge as he blames
Lloyd Abbott for the Holt family's
problems. Helen Holt (Kathy
Baker) was left alone to raise the
bovs after her husband's death. The
word is she had an affair with Lloyd
Abbott in the months after the
death.
Built around this conflict is the
romance between Doug and Pamela
Abbott (Liv Tyler). It is really the
strongest aspect of the movie.
Without too much sentimentality,
the awkwardness of young romance
is engagingly captured through the;
evolution of their relationship. It is;
one of the few aspects of the ploti
that seems fully developed andj
realized. Other relationships at
times seem sketchy and lead you to;
having to assume too much. There
are a lot of apparent small town
secrets that are never revealed, but
that is, perhaps, part of the charm of
the movie.
Phoenix and Tyler both do an,
excellent job in their roles. Phoenix
does well at acting like he's not
acting. Tyler is charming as the
sweet Abbott, Pamela. Kathy Baker,
is also quite good.
Inventing the Abbotts doesn't have
lesbians, showgirls or penishands.
But, baby, it's got iove.

Eastern North Carolina.
The Greenville Museum of Art will

The Writers Reading Series brought a

Initially, Fay said, some people may be
reluctant to come to the readings.
"They may think there's not anything for
them, but people discover they really enjoy it
she said.
The readings allow audience members the
opportunity to talk to the writers.
"People really can come and talk to the

Downtown Greenville's street singer no bum
MlCCAH SMITH
SENIOR WKITF.lt
If you're a regular becr-swillin
karaoke-singin hot wing-eatin'
downtown par-tay animal, you
should already know who this guy is.
Firmly ensconced in his little alcove
in front of New York Fashions, that
creepy little purveyor of fine wigs
and human hair on the comer of
Fifth and Evans Streets, a solitary
figure stands unabashedly playing
his guitar and sinjna for mnnev
mosr everv night on the weekends.
He has a strangely sly charm and
looks about as likely to steal your
girlfriend as he is your wallet, but, as
it turns out, he's mostly harmless
after all.
Jai Kamke is his name and music
(musical therapy, to be more
specific) is his game. "It's pretty
damn cold sometimes he admits,
"but it's all about music
Actually, it's all about rent. The
20-vear-old sophomore who's been
playing for fifteen years says he
rakes in up to $20 a night.
Attending ECU, one of only two
schools in the state to offer degrees
in musical therapy, has been an
uphill hurtle from the su" for
Kamke, who dropped our of hijh
school because of personal
problems. After attending summer
classes to catch up and working
hard at academics, he graduated as
an North Carolina Honors student
in-96.
Last August he injured his left
arm, no laughing matter for a guy
who plans to make a career out of
his classical guitar skills, and after
three months of rehab he is
persevering with two "dead-
fingers.
He spent his childhood in
Memphis, sneaking his mom's
guitar out of her closet and
practicing when she wasn't around
until the age of nine, when he
began formal lessons.
"I used to play in Memphis in
coffeehouses and bars he recalls.
Kamke also participated in the Jerry
Garcia Tribute concert at Overton
Park Shell in Memphis, an
accomplishment of which he is
particularly proud, since Elvis
himself graced that same stage
manv vears ago.
But that's not the only thing he
and Kamke have in common;
Kamke also shares The King's
penchant for the pompadour
hairstyle, a stiff, shiny crown of
smooth lacquered blonde hair that
is always sure to get attention in
this town, especially when paired
with Kamke's mutton-chop
sideburns.
However, Kamke has the

Hollywood saves its best for last
Dale Williamson
SENIOR WRITER
The winter movie season witnessed a
wide range of films that generated
everything from glorious praise
(James Cameron's Tuanic, for
instance) to spiteful hisses (Kevin
Costner's self-indulgent The Postman).
While I did not even come close to
seeing everything that's been
released in theaters within the last
month or so, the few movies I did
manage to catch proved to be more
than enough to satisfy any movie buff
with eclectic tastes.

despite
critics
argue,
Bond's
mass appeal has
not dwindled
with time.
The plot for
this Bond adventure is hokey, but
aren't they all? This time, Mr. Bond
takes on a multi-billionaire media
mogul (played by the very nasty
Jonathan Pryce) who wants use his
technological resources to
inadvertently start World War III with
China in order to secure exclusive
media coverage of the entire
situation. Huh?
I fully acknowledge the sheer
ludicrousness of the entire concept,
but three things make this Bond flick
non-stop fun � Mr. Brosnan's sharp
performance as Britain's greatest
super spy, Michelle Yeoh's uncanny
screen presence as Bond's kick-ass
partner, and the furiously paced
action sequences.
Not since Sean Cannery carried a
pistol and wore a tuxedo in the '60s.

anyone. As Bond
states in a key
confrontation
with a deadly
assassin, whether
he is making love
to a woman or
killing another
human being, he
is simply doing
his job.
But that does
not mean
Brosnan is not
fun. The great
thing about Brosnan is that he
perfectly blends the seriousness of his
character with the comic book nature
of the entire series. His Bond can
crack the corny jokes, karate chop any
bad guy, romance any woman, and
still find time to shed a painful tear in
his martini.
Making the film ever so complete
is Yeoh, the extraordinary super
actress from China best known for

New Simpsons guide comprehensive view of show
� i i : j. Cm nr,A r�lr�r �i immarifis. Ever �
JOHN DAVIS
ASSISTANT LIFESTYLE EDITOR
Although Tie Simpsons is still going
strong as the world's longest running
prime-time cartoon, has reruns in
syndication every day on most Fox
affiliates, has spawned two
soundtrack CDs and has generally
saturated popular culture for anyone
bom after 1965, there is still not
enough Simpsons stuff out there. It
is always nice when the marketing
people at Rx cook up more Smpsons
goodies for those of us who can't get
enough of the family that put the
"fun" in dysfunctional.
Matt Groening, creator of the
Simpsons, has often remarked that the
show was designed for people who
pay attention, and this new book,
which is pretty much a
comprehensive guide and index to
the entire series, is testament to just
how much thought is put into the
show.
Unlike most books about TV
shows, which feature crummy black
and white photos and are the size of
those annoying comic books that
roving preachers hand out in public
places, (ever seen the "Friends-
book?) this book is 249 pages long
and chock full of useful, fun
information.
For example, there is an index of
every instance in the series when
Homer said "doh" and why, most of
the times he said "mmm a list of
every piece of official Kruscy the
Clown merchandise and a
filmography of every "Itchy and
Scratchy" episode.
The meat of the book is an
episodc-by-episode synopsis of the
series, complete with character
profiles and plot summaries. Ever
wonder what Bart wrote on the
chalkboard at the beginning of a
certain episode? Ever wondered
which famous stars made cameo
appearances in which episodes?
The guide is perfect as a
reference, for those coffee table
arguments about who played the
coyote in Homer's acid trip (Johnny
Cash) or what the name of Flanders'
grill is (Propane Elaine), as a trip
down memory lane, or as a fun self-
test to see just how much useless
knowledge one human being can
acquire in eight short years.
The only drawback to this
wonderful guide is the obvious, no
one is thinking about, anytime soon,
canceling Tie Simpsons. Which means
that even though this book is up to
date as of the 96-97 season, there are
Simpsons episodes which are not
covered in the guide.

The Pastels
Up For A Bit With
7 OUT OF 10
fi FR Rn�F
STUI- WRITE
From the beginning of The Pastels'
re-issued album, Up For A Bit
With, you are instantly placed in a
cathedral setting where your ears
are plummeted with an arena-rock
style drum beat and symphonic
keyboards. The pop music of The
Pastels has been defined as
Glasgow's answer to Pavement.
There are definite undertones that
would make one realize a
Pavement influence, though it's
not too heavy.
Up For A Bit With was recently
re-released on Vevel records, a label
that houses acts such as Pulp,
Chuck Prophet and Blue
Aeroplanes. The Pastels hail from
Scotland and consist of four
members. The vocals are mainly
handled by the group's
singerguitarist Stephen
McRobbie. The original album was
released in Feb. 1987 on Glass
Recordings and since then the
band has had several lineup
changes. As of now the band has
just released a CD single for a
current song, "Yoga which has
been released bv Matador Records.
After the first track. "Ride

sounds like a Morrissey imposter
reunited with a Smiths cover band
and to top it ail off, is backed by a
glockenspeil! Rock. The fact that
the original release date was 1987,
clearly explains the Smiths-esque
Euro-pop influence.
The chorus-driven electric guitar
sounds like a direct link to a Lush
album except that The Pastels have
a male singer. The album is
relativelv simple in a very melodic
way. The track "Hitchin A" begins
with the somewhat cheesy line,
"Hey Hey Hey are you going my
way?" The song is obviously about a
hitchhiker person who is about to
be picked up by the
singerstoryteller. The Pastels seem
to like to use an odd choice of
background instruments. For

well-done action films craving for
more.
Those who want more action than
talk in their movies more than likely
will be disappointed by Quentin
Tarantino's follow-up to Pulp Fution,
Jackie Brown. Based on Elmore
Leonard's pulp crime novel, Rum
Punch, Jackie Brown follows the back-
stabbing adventures of an aging black
woman named, amazingly enough,
Jackie Brown (played nicely by 70s
blaxplotation queen, Pam Grier).
Jackie is a struggling airline
stewardess who ends up in a jam
when she gets busted by the cops for
smuggling a significant sum. of money
into the country for a deadly gun
runner, played by the always amazing
Samuel L. Jackson. When she gets
busted, the cops offer her two
options: either help them bust her
crime boss or serve her time behind
bars. Fearing for the safety of her life
and not wanting to have her life
further screwed up by serving time,
Jackie takes things into her own
hands and decides to play both sides
of the party for fools. The cops
believe she is working for them, the
gun runner believes she wants to fool
the cops and help him, but in reality
she is manipulating everyone in an
effort to only help herself.
Jackie Brown is a character- and
plot-driven story that demands
attention to details. It has Tarantino's
signature all over it, but it seems to be
almost a reaction against the hype
that surrounded Pulp Fiction. The
violence has been toned down
significantly (almost all violence
occurs offscreen here); the dialogue,
while still snappy and filled with
humor, is more realistic and
functional; and the pacing is much
more deliberate, slowly leading to a
climax that is almost anti-climatic.
All-in-all, Jackie Brown is not as showy
and hip as either Pulp Fution or
Reservoir Dogs.
But therein lies the sheer beauty
of this film. Tarantino seems to
exhibit more maturity as a filmmaker
with this outing. If anything, this film
solidifies his talents as a filmmaker
and storyteller. Tarantino has a keen
visual eye that is simple yet
atmospheric, his abilities to blend
music within his narrative recalls a
young Martin Scorsese and his
influence on actors is apparent. Not
only does he get solid performances
from Grier and Jackson, but Robert
DeNiro, Michael Keaton and Bridget
Fonda all perfectly fit into their roles.
Most impressive of all the bunch,
though, is Robert Forester, who gives
a powerfully subdued performance as
Jackie's partner and possible love
interest.
Tarantino has a rare ability to see
the beauty in things long forgotten or
totally ignored, and Jackie Brown is a
prime example of this. Not only does
he prove that such actors of
yesteryear as Grier and Forester have
much more life in them, but he also
adds respectability to the pulp crime
story in general, a genre that is always
popular but seldom praised.
Possibly the most popular and
praised film of the moment comes in
the form of a huge ship history
remembers as the Titanic. James
Cameron's epic film, Titanic, has
been famous for some time as being
the most expensive movie ever made.
Now it has become famous as the
most shining example of winning
despite unspeakable obstacles. Not
only has Titanic wowed just about
every movie critic in the country, it
has already earned more than $150
million at the domestic box office.
Also, it stands to be a major Oscar
contender, with a big possibility of
winning best picture of the year. No
matter how vou look at it, Titanic is a
hit.
But does Cameron's project of love
live up to the hype? In all honesty,
yes.
While Titanii is not, in my humble
opinion, the best picture of the year,
it is a spectacular epic that is fueled
by an engaging love story and top-
notch performances from its two
leads, Leonardo DeCaprio and Kate
Winslet.
The plot, involving the romance
between a poor artist and a young,
rich girl who is engaged to a heartless
tycoon (played perfectly by Billy
Zane), is simple but very effective.
Admittedly, it is a melodramatic story
that focuses on the class division
onboard Titanic, but it works
wonderfully. Cameron, who also
wrote the screenplay, almost seems to
be paying homage to the classic love
films of the '40s and '50s here. But,
more importantly, Cameron's decision
to spend time developing his
characters before the inevitable
tragedy strikes makes the film more
potent for his viewers. The audience,
in some form or another, identifies
with and cares for these struggling
lovers. We want them to be together,
to grow old together. But everyone
sitting in the theater knows that such
will not be the case.
Once the tragedy ensues and
Titanic does hit that fated iceberg,
Cameron does what he does best and
fills the screen with one spectacle
after another. As a director, he
perfectly captures the sense of
madness and desperation that must
have flooded the ship as it slowly sank
to the ocean depths. As a movie
magician, he once again tops himself
with awe-inspiring visuals that will
excite you and fill you with grief all at
once.
Despite the incredible visual
effects and breath-taking set pieces
that clearly illustrate an artist's eye for
detail, the most amazing quality of
Titanic resides in the fact that you
become so involved with the story
and characters onboard the ship that
never once is a there a need to check
your watch in eager anticipation for
the action to start.

uncanny ability to look like John
Lennon if he leaves his hair down.
He's likely to be found in the
Underwater Pirates' Cove on
lucsdav nights doing the open-mike
thing. When he takes the stage in
his unassuming yet confident
manner, the audience can relax,
knowing that they're not going to be
blasted by some Gen-Xer's idea of
angst rock.
Instead, they'll be treated to
acoustic renderings of songs by the
likes of Neil Young and The
Graceful Dead, with a healthy dose
of the blues to keep it interesting.
His original tunes blend easily
with the other songs about
heartache and this crazy world we all
live in, and his voice, possessed of
Jagger's vocal energy and Dylan's
unconcern, is soothing to the soul.
Kamke hopes to use music in
pain management programs for
terminally ill patients; learning to
play the guitar will help take mental
stress over illness off of the patients
and give them a sense of
accomplishment.
Kamke really isn't surprised to
find himself on the right track after
a few false starts. "If you care and
you work hard you will achieve your
