President Clinton this month
proposed an expansion of the
college work study program to
serve more students, although
advocates say the increase may
come at a steep price: offsetting
cuts in a federal ban program.
On Jan. 9, Clinton, outlined his
college work study proposal, which
would provide an extra $70
million, or total funding of $900
million in fiscal year 1999. If
approved by Congress, the plan
would increase the number of

Respect your elders? What about the elders respecting their students for a change of
While some members of ECU's faculty and staff demonstrate the utmost of courtesy and
would bend over backwards to help out a student, the majority seem to care more about why
they are here rather than why we are here.
For instance, a secretary operating a registration terminal on dropadd day slaps an "Out
to Lunch" sign on the door after you wait patiently for 40 minutes in line.You are told to
come back at 1:45, and it doesn't matter that you have to work for the rest of the afternoon.
And then there's the adviser you call twice a day for over a week who never returns your
calls. You stop in to sec when her office hours are and sure enough, there she is at her desk,
sipping her coffee and reading the latest issue of People magazine.
Then there's the teacher who refuses to hear your explanation for why you missed a math
quiz. Little did he know that you were in a car accident and had to be rushed to the hospital
for surgery. Now your A in the class has dropped to a B because of a situation you had
absolutely no control over.
We all realize that ECU staff members are very busy. But it is time for the staff to realize
that the students (in most cases) have just as many � if not more � things to do each day.
Most are trying to juggle the 24 hours that go by each day to fit in class, work, meetings and
The university faculty needs to realize that without students, there would be no East
Carolina University. It is understandable that it would be impossible to please each and
every person on campus, but asking for a little more respect is not asking too much.
Staff members need to listen to the students. Let students say what they need to say and
then decide if their explanation is valid. Whatever happened to the concept of a
Students, in turn, need to be respectful to those to whom they are turning for help.
Overly demanding and impatient students will find themselves getting nowhere, but those

Wolf issue has two strong sides
150 wohes will have
to fend for themselves,
which is not unusual for a
species who has been
struggling for hundreds of
years to survive in the wake
Recently when District Judge
William Downcs decided for
petitioners whose aim is to rid gray
wolf populations near Yellowstone
National Park, he incited a virtual
maelstrom of appeals and criticism
from the National Wildlife
Federation and animal rights
activists. However, either side of the
issue is questionable because both
have good cases.
Ranchers have livelihoods to
think about. And the Federation has
an endangered species to protect
(less than 150 gray wolves live in the
2.2 million acre national park).
Unfortunately, the law does not
favor the wolves whose
"experimental" status is more like
In Tone, Thomas France, senior
counsel of the NWF, said of Judge
Downes' verdict, "The decision
defies common sense. It was an
order to take ten steps backwards
And if followed through, the
decision can only be seen as a
reversal of what many consider one
of the most successful
rcintroductions ever of a near-
Gray wolves are not
unaccustomed to controversy. For
hundreds of years they have been
the object of mankind's fear and
hate. Hunted to near-extinction in
the United States, a plan was set
into morion in the carry 1970s to
reintroduce the gray wolf to
Yellowstone's wildlife population.
After 20 years of debate, 31 grey
wolves were transported from
northern Canada to the park.
Since then, the project has been
a total success. The park's flooded
population of moose, elk and coyote
(caused by the wolves' extinction)
was brought into balance. This
success trickled down to scavengers
like ravens, magpies and grizzly
bears, who feast on the wolves'
leftovers. It seemed everything was
returning to normal.
But wolves cannot be confined to
park boundaries. Occasionally, stray
wolves kill surrounding livestock
and pose threats to ranchers.
There's always the stress of not
knowing if wolves are in the area
said Vcrn Keller, a local rancher. "It
keeps us on the edge all the time
And here is where Judge Downes
passed his decision. He has ordered
their "removal" (i.e. given any gun
carrying fool the right to shoot the
animals on sight) and protected
them (i.e. gun carrying fools) from
the Endangered Species Act which
waffles on "experimental" near-
extinct animals. Because the wolves
arc a reintroduction they arc not
protected by law. It sounds
ludicrous, but this is what has
For the time, the NWF has
appealed the decision, but it will be
a while before any positive action
takes place. In the meantime, the
150 wolves will have to fend for
themselves, which is not unusual for
a species who has been struggling
for hundreds of years to survive in
the wake of mankind.
Humans need to love each other
Remember Dr. King's dream
Mil members of the human
race should love each other,
open up their hearts and
welcome diversity, and not
rest until they wipe away a
tear and simultaneously put a
smile of good cheer on
someone else's face this year.
During the Christmas season people
around the world "shop until they
drop They buy numerous gifts to
be placed under their evergreen tree
beautifully decorated with
ornaments, tinsels, and candy canes.
Yet, while many jump with joy, smile
with glee, and dance in merriment,
millions of Americans go to bed
hungry, feel depressed, experience
tribulations, and do not have
"visions of sugar plums dancing in
their heads However, many who
have visions of sugar plums get sour
grapes instead. All Americans
should unite and make this nation
and the wodd a brighter place for
our neighbors around the globe.
The items on my New Year's list arc
key to spreading joy and cheer and
putting smiles on faces throughout
My first request is for improved
race relations in America. America,
a house divided, can't endure too
much longer beyond the new
millennium unless she gets her
house in order. I agree with Dr.
Martin Luther King when he
elucidated that people should be
judged by the content of their
character rather than by the color of
their skin. When North Carolina,
for example, continues to re-elect a
narrow-minded person like Jesse
Helms, that doesn't bode well for
cither the South or the nation. In
any event, every predominantly
white university in this nation
should resolve, in 1998, to make a
course in race relations mandatory
for all students, and hence, a
prerequisite for graduation.
My second request is for world
peace. The United States
government must learn to negotiate
with countries regarded as terrorist
organizations for too long. I agree
with a famous quote made by the
honorable President John F.
Kennedy in 1961: "We should never
negotiate out of fear; but let us
never fear to negotiate If Ronald
Reagan had believed that, he
wouldn't have sent bombs into
Libya in 1986 to destroy the lives of
innocent people like Hana, the
adopted daughter of Libyan leader
Iraq is another country believed
to harbor terrorists. The U. S.
government should work closely
with Saddam Hussein to ameliorate
relations between the two
countries. George Bush pushed
around the Iraqis during the Persian
Gulf War. Instead of becoming
aggressive or belligerent towards
countries with a military capability a
small fraction of ours, who should
advocate peace. President William
McKnley was right when he stated
the following: "Peace is more
preferable to war in any
establishing close relations with
countries like Iraq is key to opening
new markets globally. Newmarkets
mean more jobs for America.
Cuba has been isolated bv the
West for too long. Stringent
sanctions against Cuba should be
removed. Such sanctions arc
devastating to the impoverished
citizens of the country. Harsh
economic reprisals hurt the hungry,
the elderly, and other disadvantaged
groups in Cuba. Since the Cuban
Missile Crisis of the Kennedy
Administration, Cuba has been
isolated from the West. I might add,
shortly before Kennedy was
assassinated, he had planned to re-
establish diplomatic relations with
My third gift request is for food
to feed the millions of people who
go to bed hungry in America and die
of starvation internationally.
Countries abundant in natural
resources should share something
with emaciated human beings
hungry for the bread of life. After
all, we should lend a hand of
benevolence to those less fortunate
than we throughout the entire year.
The fourth request is for a cure
for cancer (i.c. breast, prostate) and
other diseases robbing precious lives
by the millions annually. If America
can put a man on the moon, then
finding a cure for deadly diseases is,
as President Kennedy predicted,
within her reach as well. Brilliant
minds from around America and the
world can come together and move
mountains of despair and welcome
an avalanche of hope. Indeed,
thanks to the sophistication and
quality of our technological
innovation, we, with God's help, can
Lastly, my fifth request is for
more love for humanity. This love is
manifested when someone stops to
help a stranded motorist having car
problems along a lonesome highway.
Such love is woven into the fabric of
a government concerned about
advancing the social welfare of its
people. When people
unconditionally volunteer their time
to help someone in need or
consistently contribute to charitable
organizations, they show love.
In a nutshell, improving race
relations should be a top priority of a
country concerned about building a
brighter future for its family. White
supremacy must be killed and
buried. Promoting world peace and
helping the hungry help themselves
are a moral obligation of ours.
Additionally, working painstakingly
to find a cure for cancer is an
honorable pursuit. Finally, all
members of the human race should
love each other, open up their hearts
and welcome diversity, and not rest
until they wipe away a tear and
simultaneously put a smile of good
cheer on someone else's face this

Jr. did what so few other

Normally editorial columns arc
reserved for the cynical observations
and complaints of editorial writers.
With The East Carolinian
specifically, much room is given over
to complaints about campus events
and local politics which are, more
often than not, really not that
important in the grand scheme of
things. Even on a national scale, the
media tends to focus on tragedies,
political failings, wars, rumors of
wars and all those wonderful human
flaws which get ratings and sell
Admittedly, it's much harder to
write about more positive issues.
Complaining makes for easy writing.
(Even at this moment, yours truly is
complaining about complaining.)
America gets a lot of low blows

form there: slavery, Manifest
Destiny, the nuclear bomb,
abortion, AIDS; our nation has
contributed greatly to the horrors of
I'm certainly not going to deny
our responsibility for the terrible
things we've done. But our nation
has produced quite a few damned
awe-inspiring things as well. This
week, wc celebrated one such
awesome instance: the life of Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr.
It may sound odd to include Dr.
King in America's contributions to
the world, since he was, after all,
fighting against 400 years of racism
that was instituted by Americans.
But think about it for a second. Dr.
King wasn't born in Africa. He
wasn't even involved in the "back to
Africa" movement, which was
prevalent in his time. Dr. King, an
ordained minister in a Protestant
church, educated in America, a
product of American culture and
history was a great man, perhaps (in
my opinion, greater than any other
man in American history) because
he actually paid attention to his
He remembered the words of the
God he worshipped: "Love jour
neighbor as you love yourself He
remembered the words of our own
Declaration of Independence: A1I
men are created equal He
remembered and took seriously
what so many of us forget and take
for granted: that this nation was
founded on the idea that people can
be trusted with freedom because
they can choose to love each other,
that the risk of a people misusing
that freedom is worth it if it means
that we have the chance to be fully
Dr. King's dream was a grand
dream, one not just of political
equality or empowerment or
entitlement, but one of love, the
closing remarks of his famous "I
Have A Dream" speech reveals this.
He speaks of a place and time where
all men gather together, white and
black Protestant and Catholic, Jew
and Gentile, to sing together theold
spiritual hymn "Free at Last It
sounds improbable, but think about
Dr. King was all too familiar with
America's shortcomings. He wasn't
in denial and he wasn't about to just
let things be. But he did what so few
other people do when they realize
that American isn't a Utopia and
never can be: he dared to take Jesus
Christ seriously, he dared to take
Thomas Jefferson seriously; he
dared to dream.

Playing music for a living is a
risky lifestyle. No matter how good
you may have it, things can turn
rotten overnight and leave you on a
street strumming your guitar for
change. This has been the story for
top artists like the New Kids and
will surety be the future for acts like
Hanson and the Spice Girls.
That's why it's so amazing
that in an industry where
quantity means more than
quality an artist like Steve
Earle has persevered.
Earle sent Nashville
reeling with his 1986 debut,
Guitar Town. In the years that
followed, his albums Exit 0,
Copperhead Road and the amazing
The Hard Way were all well-received
by critics, but his fan base stayed
small. Then Earlc's drug addictions
got the best of him. After not
showing up for a court date, Earle
was thrown in jail. It was there that
Earie decided to turn things around.
After his short jail stint, Earle
rereleased his Train A-Conmi and
released I Bel Alright on his new E-
Squared record label. Both were
hailed critically as they contained
some of Earle's best work. Perhaps
the most important aspect of fid
Alright was the openness of the
lyrics. In songs like "CCKMP'
(Cocaine cannot kill my pain) Earle
painted a picture of how his life had
been and where it was now
After touring behind

microphone and came out with El
On Corazon, Earle wrote and sang
from the heart. The result is a
deeper record that takes some time
to digest. One fast listen brings
exposes the brilliance that is present
on El Corazon.
A look at the liner notes also
reveals the all-star cast of. musicians
who lent a hand to the songs. The
appearance of Emmylou Harris on
the album is no surprise, as she also
lend a hand on Train A-Comin She
has also paid tribute to Earle by
covering his song "Goodbye" on her
recent Wrecking Ball album.
However, the album also contains
guest spots by artists like The Del
McCoury Band, The Fairfield
and Earle's own
son. Such a
diverse pool of
For example, "Tancytown" (with
Harris singing back-up) provides a
dark story of times past. Telling the
storv of a mentally retarded black
man in a racist society, "Tancytown"
is an example of why Earle is hailed
as an excellent songwriter by his
This is in contrast to the
bluegrass stylings of "I Still Carry
You Around Backed by The Del
McCoury Band, Earie provides an
upbeat little ditty to lighten the
mood of the album.
The roots of El Corazon extend
deep into the essence of rock and
country. In fact one listen to "NYC"
will have you defending Earle has a
true alternative artist, while
"Christmas in Washington" allows
Earle to show his folkish balladeer
talents. "Washington" also falls in
with songs like "Billy Austin" and
"Devil's Right Hand" as a political
EJ Corazon is one of those albums
that cannot be summed up in a few
words. The songs are raw with a
stripped-down sound that gets in
your face and makes you listen.
Despite being a more diverse
record than any of Earle's past
endeavors, it still flows and is
listenable from beginning to end.
Regardless ot whether it sells 10
copies or 10 million copies it will
forever be noted as one of his best
albums ever by those who give it a

memory is best stimulated by a smell, a
wafting of a long-forgotten scent under the

much of my prepubescent life: the skating rink.

Pirates post two strong wins
TRACY M. LAUBACH
The ECU men's basketball team
; has been on a home stretch for
their past three games, two of
which were Pirate wins. The last
away game was played against
CAA opponent James Madison
?$� University on Jan. 7 and sent the
! i team home with a 90-60 victory as
? tithe Pirates shot 63 percent.
;j The first of the home games
'was against the Tribe of William
and Mary on Jan 10. Led by senior
forward Raphael Edwards with 20
points and senior guard Tony
; Parham with 16, the Pirates put 63
points on the board while the
Tribe posted 72 points to pick up
their third conference win.
According to William and
Mary's Head Coach Charlie
Woolum, the Pirates arc one of the
strongest teams in the CAA.
"Don't get down on ECU
because, believe me, they arc
going to be right in the thick of
the race Vbolum said. "That is
why I am so pleased with this
victory I think we beat one of
the best teams in the league
The Tribe ranks number one in
conference standings and are
undefeated at this point.
ECU Head Coach Joe Dooley
said the team expected the game
to be a tough one.
"We knew going in that there is
a reason why William and Mary is
the number one team Dooley
said. "We knew they were good
and they played up to as good as
we thought they would
ECU was at a disadvantage,
with several key players on the
bench with injuries. Alphons van
Icrland broke his left hand at
practice on Dec. 11, while Neil
Punt broke his right foot during
the Dec. 20 UNC Asheville game.
According to Dooley, having
men on the bench is no excuse for
"We have played about five
games without a full team, and we
are not going to get them back for
a while, so we may as well get used
to it Dooley said.
Senior center Dink Peters, who
?ut 14 points on the board for the
irates said that the high points of
the game came in spurts, claiming
that the game was a "war on the
'We can't hold our heads down.
Every practice we are going to get
better and keep giving it our all
Peters said. "As a team and a unit,
we can't get frustrated and think
that the season is over because'
there are a lot of games left to be
The Pirates took a break from
conference play on Jan. 14 to meet
Liberty University for the fourth
time in the scries history.
ECU controlled the game for
half of the first period. At the 6:05
mark, Larry Jackson from Liberty
went to the foul line for two good
shots to give his team a lead that
held through the half. ECU
headed to the locker room at
halftime down by five points, 31-
"It seemed like in the first half,
no matter what we did, they
outmatched us with answering
shots Dooley said.
The second half was like a new
ball game for the Pirates. Parham,
who had been sitting the game out
with an injured shoulder, stepped
in to nail four three-pointers, the
first coming with 15:46 on the
clock. At the 12:27 mark, he sent
another one, immediately
don't have a lot of healthy people Peters stayed on the bench, but
followed by a three-pointer by
Blackweldcr's shot gave the
Pirates a one point lead to be held
for the duration of the game. �
Halfway through the second
half, Peters went down with a
strained calf muscle, thus adding
another name to the roster of
those injured on the team.
Even with Peters out, ECU
won the game 74-63, shooting 49
percent from the floor and 60
percent from the line.
"I am very proud of the kids
Dooley said. "The effort has been
good in practice so we have been
trying to build on that. We have
cut back on practices because we

the Pirates through to a 77-67

Track teams shine at Chapel Hill meet
Schedule kicks off
For ECU's men's and women's
track teams, the indoor meets that
make up the beginning of their
schedule offer a chance to gain
experience and see how far they
have to go to reach their ultimate
goal. The earliest of these, The Joe
Hilton UNC Invitational, was held
last weekend in Chapel Hill.
The women's team came to
Chapel Hill for their second meet
of the season, but their first since
returning from winter break.
"I didn't expect a lot in our first
meet back from the holidays, but
we practiced hard for three or four
days before the meet said
women's Head Coach Charles
The Pirates, rust and all, still
managed some sparkling individual
performances. Freshman Marshari
Williams posted a time of 9.29
seconds in the 60 meter high
hurdles and wound up sixth.
Meanwhile, Missy Johnson soared
to ninth in the triple jump and
eighth in the long jump. She was
bested in the latter by teammate
Leana Anding, who finished sixth
with a jump of 17 feet 7 inches.
However one of the most
dramatic events of the day featured
two Pirates in the shot put.
Freshman Michelle Clayton
finished fifth edging out the sixth
place Crystal Frye by one
"It was great. Michelle would
throw and Crystal would match.

Returning players cany men's
basketball team to the top
The mens basketball team has experience on its side with four
senior starters. Othello Meadows, an Omaha, Neb. native, and
Tony Parham. from Washington, D. C, lead the way as the most
experienced backcourt in the CM. Parham has started in every
game but one in his first three years at ECU. Meadows and
Farham have combined to start a total of 138 games for the
Pirates. Meadows is also one of the most accurate three-point
shooters in the conference. He has ranked either first �r second
from behind the arch for the past two seasons. Raphael Edwards
and Dink Peters provide senior leadership in the front court.
Peters, also from Washington, D. C, averaged 8.7 pointe a game
last year mostly form the bench. Edwards, hailing from Brooklyn,
N I was named second team all conference last year, � a year
in which he lead the Prates with 13.2 points and 6.6 rebounds
Kr game. The final starter is a local from Ayden, Alico Dunk.
mM junior, dished out 56 assists as a sophomore who ranked
second on the team. In addition to the starters, Steven Branch, a
freshman from Newark, N. J has some playing time this jrear. 1
am excited about the contributions he (Branch) has made, Loach
Joe Dooley said. Dooley is also looking forward to getting fresh-
man Alphons van Ierland. a Netherlands native, back from a hand
injury in a couple of weeks.
Starters make for well-rounded
Lady Pirate program
The womens team is also led by some seasoned veterans, co-
captains Stay Hayes from Waldorf, Md. and Jen Cox from
Bedford, Va. The pair is averaging almost points and l.U
rebounds per game. Sophomores Misty Home and Danielle
Melvin, from Statesville and Roseboro respectively, have started
in all of the Lady Pirates' games this year Home is a threat to
score from the outside, having made the team-leading 25 three-
� pointers so far this year Melvin has averaged over 20 minutes a
game while scoring five points and pulling down five rebounds per
game. The sophomore class led by Misty and Danielle have
� played really ell Coach Ann Donovan -slid. Another suolw-
more leader is Melanie Gillem, who has seen time in 12 of the 14
contests this year. Gillem averages over five points a game and
has gone 1031 on three point attempts. Tncia Peckham and
Jennifer Moretz, both freshmen, have seen significant pbying
time in their rookie season. Together they have started in 14
games contribute steady play at the guard position. Beth Jaynes,
ajunior from Pfafftown, N. C, has played in 13 of the 14 contests
and contributes solid play in the post.

The wait is almost overt
S c o i t Rose
Tlie long wait is almost over for Pirates fans as the
expansion of Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium nears comple-
The expansion will hold an additional 8,000
fans. The actual seats that will hold the fans have to
be put in and that should take about two weeks,
according to Henry Van Sant, assistant athletic
director. The concourse is near completion, with
final touches being put on the concession stands,
souvenir shops, and the restrooms.
There is still caulking to be done to the stadium.
Kight now the construction crew are in the remedial
and cosmetic stage, putting the finishing touches on.
Construction on the stadium should be complet-
ed by early spring �just in time for the spring
pig-out. There's nothing like breaking in the
new stadium with a big party and a little pig.
"The main problem with' the delay is basi-
cally too much work loo little timesaid Van
Some of the problems with construction have
a lot to do with the timing of different things,
like materials arriving late, which therefore
pushes back the starting time of the phase in
which the materials were needed.
'This is not unusual in construction of this
size Van Sant said. UA lot of problems come
from the subcontracting, materials being late
and phases not being finished on time

The stadium will be absolutely
fabulous: eople will be astounded

So, Pirate fans, be assured that
the stadium will be finished bv the
upcoming football season. This sta-
dium will definitely bring our uni-
versity up into the ranks of the top
