Lighting problems on campus pinpointed by Chancellor
Another walk
planned to take
place in spring
AMBER TATUM
STAFF WHITE
Chancellor Richard Eakin, in the
company of various officials,
recently walked around campus
pinpointing areas that lack
sufficient lighting.
Those present to walk were as
follows: Ren Kisida, director of
Facilities Services; Sergeant
LaFrance Davis, crime prevention
agent; Theresa Crocker, chief of
ECU Police; Dean of Students Ron
Spcier, Tom Younce, assistant
director of ECU Police; Leslie
Pulley, secretary of SGA; and Chris
Feathers, chief of staff of SGA.
While many areas identified have
little or no lighting, some of the
darkness was due to malfunctions in
the lamps, temporary construction
areas and burnt out bulbs.
"I sent out work orders today to
get the lights back in working
order Kisida said.
Funding for this project comes
from the repair and renovation
budgets of student unions and
similar organizations.
Kisida said this summer when
the west campus resident and
freshman parking lots are paved,
lighting will improve.
"Parking lots at Fifth and Reade
(streets) arc going to be paved and
new lights will go up then Kisida
said.
One of the darkest areas
identified on campus is the mall on
the north side of Joyner Library.
"W: have hired an engineer to
come in and look at lights in the
mall and suggest improvements
Kisida said.

Many students are enjoying the Microsoft Exchange system � if they
arc lucky enough to actually get to the program.
Campus officials have said the e-mail program is not the problem,
rather the problem lies with the access. Since Christmas, students have
found it virtually impossible to get to their Exchange accounts; a
message saying either the server is down or the maximum number of
users were connected to the server greeted many a user.
Picture the Exchange program as a heart; if the web connection were
an artery, it would be clogged with cholesterol as too many students get
on-line at once.
"Our issue is related to Microsoft and the ability to have students,
faculty, staff, etc. use the web connector and Exchange in a
simultaneous fashion said Ernie Marshhurn, associate director for
Academic Computing and Microcomputing Services.
Students now have several ways to get into their e-mail. Four
different ways of getting into the e-mail system exist such as the new
POP, IMAP and LAN Student Exchange and the web connection which
is known as the old VM version of e-mail.
"Previously there were only two 'doorways' into Exchange: LAN
client tor faculty and staff and the web connection for students
Marshburn said.
A limit of 500 users has been put on the web connection to try to
deter people from choosing that alternative into Exchange. Meanwhile,
ECU's CIS staff has developed other ways for students to use their e-
mail.
"The recommendation from Microsoft at the present time was to
limit usage until we could determine how best to fix the problem
Marshburn said.
Knowing the importance of e-mail being available to students caused
CIS officials to work arduously on this problem. A LAN Student
Exchange has been developed by ECU's Assistant Manager of Academic
Computing, Barney Jemigan.
"ECU has created something that no one has Marshburn said. "Vfe
have had to be resourceful and something (LAN Student Exchange) has
bloomed out of it. The floppy disk allows mobility that was not possible
before. East Carolina, specifically a member of my staff, found a way to
provide nomadic capability in the LAN client and found a way to install
that in a public lab.

The Student Welfare Committee is
opening the floor for suggestions
from students.
"Students can have a direct
channel of information with the
student government said Andrew
Riddle, co-chair of Student Welfare
Committee.
Suggestion mailboxes will be put
into the entrance of six main
buildings on campus each with its
own pen and scrap paper.
"There will be six (mail)boxes in
all Riddle said. "There will be one
at the Wright Place, Mendenhall,
Minges Coliseum, Allied Health,
one at Todc Dining Hall and one at
Joyner Library
Both the Student Welfare
Committee and the Student
Government Association need input
from the students. Without it, they
feel there will be no improvement.
"The essence of the whole thing
is for students to be aware of what it
is that the SGA can do for them
Riddle said.
Groups like these are responsible
for things like adding more light to
darker areas of campus or going to
higher officials with ideas other
students may bring to their
attention that are aimed at
improving life at ECU.
"I hope the students take
advantage of these suggestion boxes
so that everyone can have direct
influence in their student
goverment Riddle said.
These will not be the normal
mailboxes that one would sec in
front of a private residence. They
are to be decorated by students
from the School of Art. Derek Cruz
is the president of the painting guild
for this project.
"It's great to have the art
department spice up these boxes
Riddle said.
The mailboxes will be checked
on a regular basis so that those
concerns will be addressed at the
next SGA meeting.
Ramadan observed by
Muslims on campus
New Pirate logo boosts merchandise sales
Month of fasting
reinforces self-control
Jacqueline D. kellum
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
Members of ECU's Muslim
Student Association (MSA) will
soon be celebrating Eid, the official
end of the Muslim month of
Ramadan.
"This is the holy month of Islam
this is the month that we fast, it's
called the month of Ramadan, and
we fast from sunrise to sundown
MSA member Laila Farbadi said.
During this month, Muslims not
only do not eat during daylight
hours, but also do not drink. They
break their fast each day after
sundown.
Observance of Ramadan is one ol
the requirements of the Islamic
religion.
�br us, the significance of
Ramadan we have a foundation of
Islam, and there are five pillars, and
one of those is fasting, member
Moahad Dar said.
The other four pillars
Shahada, �aiat, Zakat and Hajj.
The purposes of Ramadan
include learning patience and self-
control, proving faith and fostering
empathy with those less fortunate.
"The reason behind this is to
practice self-control, and to see how
poor people feel when they're
hungry, and there's no food around
member Rania Abdel-Rahman said.
"We're doing this to show our
willingness to do what the word of
God has told us Dar said.

PeeDee's popularity
remains steady
Holly Harris
SENIOR WRITER
PeeDee isn't the only pirate in town.
Officials at the Student Store say
that since the Jan. 8 unveiling of
merchandise displaying the tougher,
sleeker, pirate logo, sales have been
supportive of the new image.
"The sales have been really good,
we've been selling almost all the
new logo stuff we have said Wanda
A. Scarborough, director of the ECU
Student Store.
So far the new pirate design,
reminiscent of a design the
university used in the 1970's, has
appeared mostly on apparel like
shirts and caps. Sue Brown,
merchandising manager for the
Student Store, says response has
been so favorable that the Student
Store plans to order more items with
the newly designed pirate such as
glasses, drinking cups and decals. It
is hoped that the new mascot's older
roots will make it popular with
alumni as well as current students.
"We have heard so much from

However, some students arc not

Cross found burned in
school yard
WAYNESV1LLE (AP) � Police
are investigating a cross-burning at
Waynesvillc Middle School
following incidents between white
and blackstudents.
A police officer discovered the
cross on his way to work Sunday
about 5:30 a.m. The cross was
about five feet tall and planted on
the school's front lawn near a flag
pole, according to the police
report.
The police report said school
officials reported there were some
incidents with some of the black
and white students at the school.
School principal Lynn Milncr

Raleigh lawyer accused
of stalking mayor
RALEIGH (AP) �A female
Raleigh lawyer is accused of
stalking Mayor Tom Fetzer,
allegedly turning up at his house
and public appearances despite
Rjczer admonishing her to stay
away.
Raleigh police on Wednesday
issued a warrant charging Valerie J.
Dayc, 40, of misdemeanor
stalking. She previously had been
charged with trespassing at
Fctzcr's home Wednesday, police
said.
Fetzer declined to talk about,
the situation, but city
spokeswoman Jayne Kirkpatrickl
said the situation doesn't involve
Fetzer's duties as mayor.
It has to do with his being an
attractive, single, middle-aged
man, she said, fetzer found Daye
outside his home after a City
Council meeting Tucsdaynight
and again Wednesday morning,
said City Manager Dempscy
Ben ton. Police Chief Mitch Brown
said Daye had shown up at
Fetzer's house before and he had
warned her to stay away.
Dayc, who practices law alone
in north Raleigh, reportedly has
been an outspoken Fetzer
supporter during his three terms
as mayor and volunteered in his
and other Republicans'
campaigns.
Hillary Clinton hails
UNICEF, ignores sex
scandal
NEW YORK (AP) �Hillary
Rodham Clinton today blamed the
sex scandal surrounding her
husband on a vast right-wing
conspiracy that has dogged them
for years, saying, we ye been
accused of everything, including
murder. The best thing to do in
these cases is to be patient, take a
deep breath and the truth will
come out, she said on NBC's
Today show. She described the
allegations as "an effort to undo
the results of two elections and
said when all the facts are known
some folks are going to have a lot
to answer for.
The allusion to a murder
accusation stems from the suicide
of White House aide Vince Foster
in July 1993. Extensive
government investigations
concluded he shot himself in a
park outside Washington.
Mrs. Clinton spoke calmly but
firmly in giving her most detailed
response yet since allegations
emerged explosively last week
that the president had an affair
with former White House intern
Monica Lewinsky and there was
an attempt to cover it up.
Organization
recognizes adult,
non-traditional
students
JENNY V1CKERS
STAFF WRITER
Pinnacle, ECU's newest non-
traditional honor society, had its
inaugural induction recently. The
society exists in over 125
institutions nationwide and
represents a diversity of active and
accomplished students. Lucy
Wright, coordinator of Adult
Student Services for ECU and
Pinnacle's adviser, addressed the
group of student at the induction.
"Most of the members are
employed, many have children and
a majority of them commute
Wright said. "They are an
interesting group, and the age span
is wide. It's amazing what they
do
This honorary organization
began in April of 1989, and offers
adult and other non-traditional
students opportunities they
weren't receiving in the traditional
honorary societies represented on
the nation's
campuses. It
developed in
response to the
fact that no older
students have
ever been
accepted for
membership in
the traditional
honoraries. This
honor society aims
to give
recognition to
them. ECU
received their
charter on Oct.
30,1997.
The Peak, a
newsletter of
Pinnacle, stated that
chapters start up
"All of them balance
an incredible number
of demands on their
time and energy,
demands such as
study, work, family,
leadership roles and
volunteer service

Services for ECU and Pinnacle
"Pinnacle

cooperatives and food purchasing
co-ops, improve parking and class
scheduling times, create carpools,
kiddie pools, and 'after schools
The newsletter also spoke
about the diversity of honorees,
which they believe is quite
amazing. The group consists of a
variety of different figures: a
retired police chief, professional
clowns, a magician, retired teacher,
single mothers and
fathers and even an 83-
year-old senior studying
literature. Most range
in age from 25 to 52,
and the average age is
33.
Students must qualify
as adult or non-
traditional students,
must be at least 25
years of age, have senior
status, a minimum
cumulative grade point
average of 3.0 on a 4.0
scale, have been
involved in at least
three campus andor
community activities,
demonstrate
leadership, persistence, and future
promise and maintain the highest
ethical standards.
Students are screened by a
selection committee comprised of
adult and non-traditional students,
faculty and administrators.
Induction of new members takes
place twice a year.
"This group of students
volunteers countless hours to a
total of 144 campus and
community organizations Wright
said. "The average student is busy,
but you add the amount of
additional service to that, and the
fact that they are very successful
shows they are a highly motivated
population. The average grades of
adult students are much higher
than traditional students.
Debra Baker, assistant director
in Career Services at ECU, and
Marion Sykes, senior associate
director for Undergraduate
Admissions, both spoke at the
induction and have made
enormous contributions to adult
students at ECU.
Wright said ECU picked the
Pinnacle due to the fact that it
required volunteer service, and it
was reasonably priced.
Wright feels that Pinnacle is a
real support for adult students.
"All of them balance an
incredible number of demands on
their time and energy, demands
such as study, work, family,
leadership roles and volunteer
service Wright said.
Greenville police arrest two on drug charges
Clintons warned daughter
early to expect attacks
NEW YORK (AP) � Hillary
Rodham Clinton said today that
her daughter, Chelsea, was all
right in the face of the scandal �
having been forewarned from
childhood to expect personal
attacks on her father.
I really want to thank people
for just letting her continue to be
a freshman, Mrs. Clinton said on
NBC's Today.
The Clintons' 17-year-old
daughter is in her first year at
Stanford University and has
remained there since the furor
erupted last week over allegations
that President Clinton had a
sexual relationship with a 24-year-
old former White House intern,
Monica Lewinsky.
Both Bill and I have talked to
her a lot Mrs. Clinton said. I was
telling Chelsea when she was a
child that this is going to happen,
and it's very unfortunate.
British Prime Minister
calls Clinton to offer
support
LONDON (AP) � Prime
Minister Tony Blair called
President Clinton today to express
his support.
Blair told Clinton that he had
been following events and that he
was thinking of him, said the
prime minister's spokesman,
speaking on customary condition
of anonymity.
Clinton has been accused of
having a sexual relationship with a
White House intern and then
encouraging her to lie about it. He
has firmly denied any impropriety.
During the 15-minute
conversation, Clinton told the
prime minister that they would be
able to talk about it more next
week, Blair's spokesman said. Blair
plans to fry to Washington for
three days of talks with Clinton.
He is scheduled to depart Feb. 4
and return Feb. 7, accompanied by
his wife, Cherie.
Recently illegalized
GHB among
substances seized
Jacqueline d. kelu'm
siT r �.Fvs EMTfM
Greenville police made two arrests
last week, seizing several weapons
and illegal drugs. One of the drugs
was the so-called "date-rape" drug,
GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate).
"That was a pretty common
sized drug bust said arresting
officer T.S. Mclnerney of the
Greenville police department.
"The onlv unusual thing was the
GHB. That just became illegal in
this state as of Dec. 1
Arrest reports show that
Edward Thomas Maul, 30, and
Paul Jeffrey Temple, 29, were both
arrested on Jan. 14 at their place of
residence on David Drive.
Both were charged with
possession with intent to sell
marijuana, maintaining a dwelling
for drug activity, possession with
intent to sell methanphetamines,
and possession of drug
paraphernalia. Temple was also
charged with possession with
gamma
intent to sell
hydroxybutyrate.
According to Mclnerney, there
were also weapons seized at the
site of the arrest.
"With Greenville, anytime we
recover drugs, we usually find
guns Mclnerney said. "They go
hand in hand
While the arrests occurred off-
campus, they still have
a potential impact on
the student
population and its
accessibility to drugs.
"Anytime you've
got someone in town
producing a lot of
drugs it's going to
have an impact on the
campus
environment said
Johnnie Umphlet,
captain of ECU police.
"The use of illegal
substances is a very
serious problem across
the country we are
not immune to that said
Associate Dean of Students Karen
Boyd. "Anytime a supplier is taken
off the streets, it's a positive
thing
Both Boyd and Mclnerney
confirmed that they had seen
evidence of GHB use among
students.

"There has been some (GHB)
use, we have had students
hospitalized for it Boyd said.
"My unit is tactical patrol, and
we assist the bike patrol
downtown, and we see a good
number of people passing out from
(GHB) use Mclnerney said.
According to Health Educator
Heather Zophy of the Student
Health Center,
GHB has
medicinal uses.
"It's a central
nervous system
depressant
Zophy said. "It's
used as an
anesthetic and in
the treatment of
narcolepsy and
alcoholism
Possibly because
GHB has some
valid medical
uses, and only in
the past couple of
years has begun to
be .used recreationalry, it hs only
recently been declared an illegal
drug.
"i think up until Dec. 1, GHB
was a drug you could find in
some health-food stores said
Secant ClSton Weatheringtpn xf
the Greenville Police Special
Investigation Unit. "It had not
Thomas Maul
SREENVIUE roilCE
really been a problem until just
recently
The effects of GHB may
include drowsiness, loss of motor
coordination, impaired judgment,
dizziness, confusion, vomiting,
seizures, and possibly
unconsciousness. All of these
effects are intensified when GHB
is combined with alcohol.
It is the unconsciousness which
helps GHB create a potential date-
rape situation.
"You can slip it into someone's
drink it causes a alcohol effect,
like a hangover-free high Zophy
said.
Unlike another potential date-
rape drug, rohypnol (or "roofies"),
which is almost always slipped into
a victim's drink without his or her
knowledge, GHB is sometimes
taken intentionally.
"I think it (drug use) is both
side's responsibility Boyd said.
"It's not just the dealer, it's the
user
Maul was contacted by TEC
shortly after the arrest, but said
that he needed to seek the advice
of his attorney before
commenting. Further calls
revealed that the phone number
shared by Maul and Temple had
been disconnected.

political solution
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP)� The
United States is intent on a
military strike against Iraq and
does not want a diplomatic
solution to the crisis over U.N.

The official's remarks, carried

Crossing the Iraqi border by

he was on an urgent mission to

Microsoft Exchange was

"One of the features that made
Microsoft Exchange the better

One may read this and ask
themselves why ECU even

"This decision involved the

"We installed it (Exchange)
because it has more facility and
more functionality said Blake

required to participate in the
fasting until they reach puberty
Some parents, according to Abdel-
Rahman, encourage their children
to attempt fasting for a few days at
a time, to prepare them for the time
when they will have to fast for the
entite month.
"Ramadan is a very special
month for children Abdel-
Rahman said. "Some of them fast
for the whole month. So we try to
reward them for that, just to say
we're proud of them
This project was meant to not
only reward the children for fasting,
but also to give them their own
holiday, not shared by their
Christian counterparts.
"We made gift packs for the
children because I think Muslim
childten feel left out at Christmas
Farhadi said.
MSA was organized to provide a
support system for the Muslim
minority at ECU, and also to
encourage better understanding
among the general campus
population about Muslims and
Islam.
"We wanted to have a religious
support group for the Muslims of

The East Carolinian
English Dept. lecturer receives grant
for doctorate completion
Grant program in
danger of
cancellation
JENNY VlCKERS
STAFF WRITER
Reginald Watson, a lecturer in
ECU's English department, is one
of two recipients awarded this year
for the UNC Doctoral Program.
The program, which awards the
recipients a year off from teaching
with a full lecturer's salary, is
helpful for Watson this year;
however, it doesn't seem promising
for others. The program might be
next in line on the chopping block.
The UNC Doctoral Program
aims to provide students with the
time needed to finish a PhD.
Thanks to the program, Watson is
finishing his PhD in four years
verses he six or seven years it
usually requires to finish.
Watson is grateful to the state
for the program, and he said he
feels blessed; however, he said it's
still tough to focus on what he's
doing while at the same time
trying to balance family and
professional responsibilities.
After the recipients finish their
dissertations they are required to
teach two years within the UNC
system.
That's what you have to give
them back Watson said. "Keep in
mind the money you receive is not
extra money, it's the normal salary
you get for teaching. The only
difference now is that I'm getting
paid to do work on my doctoral
degree
Over the years the program's
numbers have
gradually been
decreasing. The
program, which
began in 1980,
was initially
awarding 15 or
16 grants a year
compared to two
awarded this
year.
"That's a
signal to me that
next year there
might only be
one awarded, or
there might not
be any Watson
said. "I fear that
this program
might be cut
Watson feels
this program increases the number
of PhD holders at predominately
non-doctoral black schools. He
says the state claims the numbers
are decreasing because there is less
funding; however, he feels this is
not the true reason.
"In the years that the numbers
have been cut you can see that
there has been a surplus, not a
deficit Watson said.
Molly Broad, UNC president,
aims to do a review of all the race-
based programs in the state.
"Basically, on the surface people
are saying the program is not race
based; it is not affirmative action
"It's hard for ECU
and other institutions
in this state to gain
and retain quality
minority faculty
because they're not
willing to promote or
put their money where
their mouth is
Reginald Watson

department
Reginald Watson
ENGLISH LECTURER
Watson said. "But if you look at
the figures you can see that
African-Americans are first on the
list of receiving awards, white
women were second, then Asian-
Americans,
and so on
Watson
applied
three years
in a row for
the program,
and was
nominated
twice by
Chancellor
Eakin for it.
"I think I
have been
very lucky
and blessed Watson
said. "It is due largely
from the support from
this institution,
Chancellor Eakin, Don
Palumbo and finally from
the state. But, at the
same time it has not solved all of
the problems of a PhD program
After teaching his required two
years at a UNC system school, he
is unsure if he will continue to
teach in North Carolina. Although
he believes the UNC system
would like him to commit to
teaching in the state for as long as
posssible, he plans to go elsewhere
after his two years are up. He
believes that until the state starts
to pay what teachers deserve,
nothing will change.
"It's hard for ECU and other
institutions in this state to gain
and retain quality minority faculty
because they're not willing to
promote or put their money where
their mouth is Watson said.
He gives credit to the effort
College of Arts and Sciences Dean
W Keats Sparrow has
put into recruiting
minorites; however, he
feels that Greenville
has to work a little
more.
"I will not stay the rest
of my life in a state that
has yet to pay university
instructors the money
they deserve Watson
said. "We are 44th or
45th in the country in
terms of paying
teachers
Watson presently is working on
his dissertation, which addresses
how the mulatto has been
represented in 19th and 20th
century. His work is a six-chapter
book he hopes will be finished in
May. In August he will return as a
lecturer at ECU, and he wishes to
get promoted and earn tenure
track as an assistant professor.
Regardless of the attempt to
increase diversity and education in
the UNC system, with such
programs like the UNC Doctoral
Program, Witson feels they could
do better.
"I think they should, one,
continue to give extra money, two,
offer it to more people, and three,
not cut the program Witson said.
"This would provide incentive for
people to work on their PhD. This
program is about the closest to
helping minorites that I've seen

Possession of Controlled
Substances � A staff member
reported the smell of burning
marijuana coming from a room in
Aycock Hall. Marijuana and a
capsule of white powder were
seized. The student was issued a
CAT and state citation. Further
charges are possible.
Possession of Weapon and
Marijuana � After an
anonymous report of marijuana in
Belk Hall a search was conducted
and marijuana and brass knuckles
were seized.
January 21. 1998
B&E of Motor Vehicle � A
non-student was arrested after an
officer observed him breaking into
a vehicle in the 2nd and Reade
Freshman Lot.
Felonious Breaking &
Entering & Larceny � A
resident of Aycock Hall reported
that while returning to her room,
she passed a person carrying a
stereo similar to hers. Once she
arrived to her room she found the
stereo and several compact discs
missing. The suspect was stopped
at Christenbury Gym where he
gave a false name. The suspect, a
non-student resident of
Greenville, had been previously
banned from campus. He was
arrested and incarcerated at the
Pitt County Detention Center.
January 22, 1998
Suspicious Person�An officer
observed a subject looking in
vehicles in the Substation parking
lot. The subject was banned from
campus.
Suspicious Person � An officer
observed a subject carrying a bike
with an ECU decal across the
Reade Street parking lot. Upon
stopping the subject, ownership of
the bicycle was not confirmed.
The subject had been previously
banned from campus and
Greenville Police had three
outstanding warrants. Greenville
Police arrested the subject. The
bicycle was seized until the owner
can be contacted.
Pirate Logo
continued from page 1
appear at games, it seems that the
new pirate is taking his place in
the hearts of ECU fans, and the
sassy little guy will have to move
over a bit. Though he will still
appear on some adult clothing,
both Brown and Scarborough say
that PeeDee will become
increasingly targeted at a younger
audience, and will be found mostly
on children's wear.
"I think a lot of people were
afraid he would be dismissed, but
PeeDee definitely has a purpose
on this campus Brown said.
Those at the Student Store are
hopeful people who have some
oaraphernalia with the older logos
will want to purchase at least some
items with the tougher image.
"I think people will want
something with the new logo on it
even if they don't particularly want
to wear it Brown said.
In the future the new pirate
may prove to be mostly a
marketing tool for the university
and its fans. For now. PeeDee will
still be making people laugh at the
football and basketball games and
the the grim revamped pirate will
hold reign over the merchandising
realm.

Light Problems
continued from page 1
be used at other dark spots on
campus, has not yet been decided.
There are many things to
investigate before an estimate of
the time this project will take can
be given. The same is true for
funding.
A suggestion made by
Chancellor Eakin to take another
walk in the spring was mentioned.
The leaf cover then will surely
shadow some of these new lights;
other alternatives will have to light
campus up despite the new, spring
leaf coverage.
African Studies
A professor at ECU has insights
bout freedom of the press in
Nigeria and will offer his views in
an African Studies Colloquium at
3:30 p.m. in Room 221 of
Mendenhall Student Center. Dr.
Festus Eribo, a professor in the
Department of Communications,
will report on the condition of
Nigeria's repressed and poorly
paid journalists who he describes
as "some of the bravest and most
resilient men and women" in
modern Africa. Eribo is a native of
Nigeria and has studied in the
former Soviet Union.

Dr. Charles Snow, a professor in
the School of Human
Environmental Sciences, will

The Student Government Association is gearing up to try out a new experiment to increase
student involvement with SGA. The SGA will soon be placing mailboxes in designated spots
across campus for the pure intent to have students on campus submit suggestions and ideas
to our campus leaders.
These mailboxes are intended to give the student body a voice and, with a lot of luck, a
very loud voice that will assist the SGA in some way, shape, form or size. The SGA is here
to speak for the student body and in order for them to be able to execute this task
successfully, they must know what the student body wants.
In the past the student body has stood back and watched the SGA without saying a word,
but would later complain about the SGA's actions as if they had taken an active role in
preventing the outcome. The student body had an excuse for their actions, but they no
longer will. These mailboxes will be spread across campus and will be convenient for all
students to use.
In addition to the SGA mailboxes, there will soon be a campaign labeled "Think 5000
This campaign is designed to increase the amount of students voting in SGA elections. What
happened to the good ol days when students were excited about being involved in campus
organizations and taking a role in organizations. Those days have apparently long passed us
by and the students now sit back without a care in the world, especially what goes on in
student government.
The most important part of this university is the students and what happens to the
students. It is time to stand up and have a voice. The SGA is interested in hearing from all
students about any issue that is on your mind. No thought or idea is to small or unimportant.
The students have the power to make a change and the process is going to be a whole lot
easier with the use of these mailboxes.
Think about what you want to say and think hard, but don't think to long the SGA is ready
now to take your thoughts and your ideas and put them into action. You can make it happen.

We have all seen them. They are

normally found only in Pantene

They are Beautiful Girls, and for
some reason, ECU seems to be
endowed with more than its fair
share of this particular sect of
fcmale-dom. Don't get me wrong; I
don't have 11 fingers or a hump
growing out of my back or anything.
But the Ford modeling agency isn t
exactly beating down my door. And I
am not jealous (well, maybe just a
little jealous). I only have one
question: Where do these women
come from? Are they born this way
or do they really have to work at it?
Granted, when these creatures
arc spotted, they are usually at the
gym, jogging or doing something
cute andsporty during which they
never really sweat; they just get
those darling little beads of
Bcrepitation across their foreheads,
ut I speak from personal
experience: I have worn my Abs of
Steel tape to a thin ribbon trying to
get that stomach, andl have come to
the conclusion that I was genetically

I often wonder what the upkeep
of beautiful runs. If you factor in the
tanning bed visits, the hair and nails
(done once every four weeks, of
course), a year-round health club
membership and all the clothes to
show it off in, then I am very glad
that I don't have to bear the burden
of being beautiful; I would go broke.
This, however, is not applicable to
those to whom beauty came
naturally. These people merely had
the good fortune of being bom just
as the good looks fairy was passing
through.
Another observation is that they
appear to travel in flocks. This is
one theory explaining their
overwhelming presence here.
Greenville must be a mecca for the
beautiful. Was that in the brochure?
I must have overlooked that page.
Maybe there is a special department
in admissions designated to letting
in the average-looking just so that
students don't suffer from shock
upon entering the real world.
A more widely supported theory
(and I am among those supporters)
claims that ECU holds an actual
portal to another dimension located
in the women's locker room of the
Rec Center � a dimension free
from gravity, bad hair and celluiite
� where all can wear spandex and

Don't judge Clinton without facts
Concerning the recent
allegations against the
president, it is my opinion
that the American people
should not rush to judgment
as the media is doing.
Almost every form of media is filled
with � if not overcome by �
President Clinton's newest scandal.
The most recent allegation against
Clinton and the possible
consequence thereof cannot be
ignored. It is not too often when a
U.S. President's removal from office
is seriously considered.
Before I continue, I want to state
that I am neither a Democrat, not
am I a Clinton supporter in any wagg
shape, or form � quite to tiler
contrary, in fact. The issues I would
like to address are based on non-
partisan ideals and concepts guided
by historical and constitutional
principles and common sense.
Concerning the recent allegations
against the president, it is my
opinion that the Amr-ican people
should not rush to judgment as the
media it doing. My aim in this
column h not to critique or evaluate
the morals of Clinton or the moral
duties of any sitting president but
rather to highlight a few points
everyone should take into
consideration before drawing any
conclusion regarding this matter.
First, most of the facts of this
scandal have been sensationalized
by a media in attempt to bring
readers, viewers, and hence, money.
The media can't be sure definite
facts frill draw a crowd, but theydo
know scandalous details will. The
real issues in this case are mere
footnotes to tabloid based stories in
newspapers and on television. No
one cares if the Lewinsky tapes
were legally recorded, logically
motivated �or that they even
contain truth!
Second, Monica Lewinsky
denied, under oath, her relations
with the President. Then, she said
changed her storyand she changed
it again. What makes any reasonable
person believe this time she'll tell
the truth? Of course if she is
granted immunity she'll "confess
Lewinsky stands to make lots of
money, if she denies the affair now,
her fijme and hopes of financial
rewards will vastly diminish. She
has a Sot to lose if she denies the
affair.
Third, the role the
"independent council has taken in
diiaKimatcer is very questionable.
M the world does Kenneth
I of the council) have the
fit or promise Lewinsky
In fact, why is he or the
' in this issue at all?
job is solely Whitewater
period. He has definitely
overstepped his boundaries.
Fourth, we as Americans cannot
ignore the domestic and
international effects this case is
having. Guilty or not, Clinton is still
our president, and in accordance, he
still has a very important job to do.
Iraq is a loose cannon, the pope is in
Cuba, the Pacific Rim economy is
going down the drain, and analysts
are telling us the quality and
quantity of social security and
education in this country are
diminishing rapidly. The U.S.
needs to be "on the ball" at home
and abroad. Our nation's well-being
is hindered because of the massive
coverage and focus of this scandal.
Of course, if the president
committed a crime, he should be
punished, but the country
shouldn't have to suffer either way.
Finally, we are never going to
really know what happened beyond
a reasonable doubt. Should any
president of the United States be
impeached and removed for. a he
saidshe said story? If Clinton is
removed, it .not only effects the
presidential institution now but also
in years to come. Once again, I'm
not trying to pass moral or legal
judgment. I just think the public
should examine the media's,
sensationalism of the- story -the
credibility and motrvatirJos bf

independent council and Kenneth
Starr are assuming, the international
and domestic effects, and then;

It's hard to say anything bad about
the ECU Jazz Ensemble. Just about
the only way you could not like
them would be if you just didn't like
jazz. And even then, their live
performances, filled with vitality
and emotion just might win you
over anyway. Carroll Dasheill, the
group's director, has managed to
maintain a consistency of talent and
style over the years, in spite of the
ever-changing roster of the group,
which is comprised entirely of ECU
students.
Jaxs Directions It, the second
recording of the Jazz Ensemble,
features live and studio cuts
recorded over the past three years.
Quite a few of the musicians on this
album, (such as Vaughn Ambrose.
Peter Lamb, Mitch Butler, Joe
Phillips, Robbie Robinson to name a
few) are still in the Jazz Ensemble,
and still perform here.

All That Jazz
The Jazz Ensemble will be
performing in a number of other
shows and events this semester,
including:
Kfcyou've never seen the award-
winning ECU Jazz Ensemble
perform live, it's not for lack of
effort or talent on their part.
This semester the School of
Music's department of jazz studies, headed
up by Carroll Dashiell, is, once again,
busting its butt to bring you, the student,
top-quality entertainment for free.
Friday night kicks off this semester's
Mendenhall Jazz at Night scries, and
there's no reason to believe that any
momentum has been lost over semester
break.
Dashiell, keyboardist and director of the
Ensemble, is looking forward to a semester
full of concerts and myriad opportunities
to showcase the talents of his students and
fellow members of the ECU School of
Music faculty.
"It's just great because everyone gets an
opportunity to perform in front of their
peers he said.
Among the featured singers
will be Susan Luddeke, who
teaches in the ECU School of
Art, and freshman Callie
Dellano.
"It's a good chance to learn a
lot more about jazz said
Callie, who grew up singing in
church. "It's all so new to me
Other performers will
include Chris Salch on
percussion, as well as Bryan
Castro and Vaughn Ambrose on
sax.
Vaughn, who is a graduate
teaching assistant for Dashiell,
is glad for the chance to
perform in Mendenhall. "It
really helps the student body
be aware of the program
established here
Electric guitarist Joe Philips
enjoys playing in the
Mendenhall scries because,
Jazz Ensemble blows it.

The music gets the attention. It's not like
a club or bar. The audience is there to
listen to it
The Ensemble divides itself into
combos for Jazz at Night with bass, drums
and, sometimes, keyboard for backbone.
Then solo instruments or various
combinations of saxophone, trumpet and
trombone are interchanged throughout the
evening to give each piece its own special
feel.
Because no two artists, or groups oi'
artists, will perform the same song the
same way, combos are important to keeping
the mood interesting and giving new life to
old favorites.

One of the first questions that you
may have thought of when this
group was first presented may be,
"What is a lox?" The group
presents the word as an anagram,
short for Living Off Xperience. But
now that that's out of the way, let's
get down to business.
The group collectively known as
The Lox; Jay, Styles and Shcek
released their album, Money, Power,
and Respect a little earlier this
month. After hearing the group
perform on Puff Daddy's No Way
Out, Mases Harlem World and
Mariah Carey's single "Honey
word around the area was that the
album would not be worth buying.
But as the saying goes, To each
their own
This group from Yonkers, New
York actually put together a decent
album. Despite what the consumers
may say about them, Puffy has an
eye for talent, and he probably saw
something that not maybe everyone
was able to see.
The best songs on the album are
the ones that include outside
performers, such as the track
"Money, Power, and Respect
which features Junior MAEIAs
DMX and the queen bee herself,
LiP Kim. Though Kim only
performs the intro and the chorus
for the song, she provides the
crowning touch on this hardcore jam
by lending a harder edge than DMX
and The Lox can provide. Another
sweet track is "Let's Stan Love
Over" (which on the CD is titled
"Let's Start Rap Over") featuring
Carl Thomas. The group tells the
story of the evolution of society
from the days of street ball and
having love for each other to the

film is taken up with a running gun battle
between the alien and his survivalist

dynamic; though he gives it a good try,
there's only so much Allrcd can do with just

Allred made the film with
virtually no budget at all, in
fact, he used one $499
Russian camera, a digital
recorder and a whole

work cheap. This kind of
ground-level filmmaking
leads to some clumsy edits
and clumsier acting, but
Astroesque has a certain
undeniable charm. Even
during its more groan
inducing moments,
couldn't help but like it.
The plot concerns a
space man (played by
Allred himself) who comes
to Earth to witness the
rebirth of the Son of Cod,
but instead runs afoul of a
bunch of redneck
survivalists. That's right,
it's pseudo-religious sci-fi

film. Without being too!

the limited ability of his actors, that
was probably a good idea. But with
its heavy metaphysical aspects, the
film needs solidly grounded
characters for support. Without
them, it tends to collapse under the
weight of its own flashback-happy
lot structure.
itill, it is nice to see someone
taking chances. Though its reach far
extends its grasp at times, Astroesque
is a pretty good small film. It's even
impressive in places, considering
how very low the budget was. Some
of the action sequences are quite
stylish, and Allred obviously has a
good visual sense. The soundtrack,
provided by Allred's band Gear, is a
bit intrusive in places, but
interesting.
And, just to round out his
renaissance man profile, Allred's
also not a bad actor. He at least has
a certain strange screen presence,
courtesy of his dark good looks and
ability to play different moods. He
seems just as comfortable in the
double-gun-blazing John Woo
scenes as he does in the more
brooding Jim-Jarmusch-inspired
sequences. Of course, in the midst
of all the stiff performances in this
film, he may look better than he

Video Game Review
NCAA Game breaker
'98
7 OUT OF 10
Rich Cornwell
STAFF WRITER
NCAA Gamebreaker '98 for the
Playstation is Sony's latest attempt
at college football. Gamebreaker
has almost all of the Division I
college teams to choose from,
including our own ECU Pirates.
Gamcbreaker's graphics are
fairly average, but each team's
stadium is rendered to look like
the real thing. The only thing
missing from Flcklen was the
forever unfinished upper deck
Like in most college games,
player's names cannot be used and
we are left with only numbers and
positions. Fortunately, players'
numbers match up with the real
guys, but when are these college
games going to give us the option
Jf naming the players ourselves?
low many people know that 11
QB for Duke is fifth year senior
Tave Green?
1 Aside from this oversite, the
player attributes are close to their
real life counterparts. Peyton
Manning and Ryan Leaf are
consistently the best quarterbacks
on the game and Charles Woodson
has unbelievable speed and
quickness. Unfortunately,
Marshall was left off the game so
Randy Moss will not see his video
game debut until next year's NFL
titles.
The stats are Gamebreaker's
strength with the top 100 players
being listed in passing, rushing,
receiving, sacks, tackles,
interceptions, kick returns, punt
returns and kicking. The only bad
part is that if you don't know
players' numbers and positions,
you won't know what the leader's
real names are.
The season report option is a
good feature which includes a Top
25 that is updated each week, a
player-awards feature that lists the
contenders for such awards as the
Heisman, running back of the year,
Davey O'Brien National QB,
receiver of the year, Bronko
Nagurski award, lineman of the
year and the Jim Thorpe award. At
the end of the season, a first and
second team Ail-American lineup
is chosen comprised of the best
players in the simulated season.
Another great feature is the
ability to play a season that will
end in Bowl games or a
tournament. Imagine, actually
being able to determine a true
national champion. The NCAA
could learn something from this
after the
Nebraska-
Michigan
debacle of this
past season.
If you are a die
hard
traditionalist,
then most of the
big bowl games
are included
along with a
Gold, Silver and
Bronze Bowl for
the top teams.
Gamebreaker offers two
types of game controls
referred to as beginner
and advanced. The
beginner controls are
similar to a Madden type game
while the advanced controls are
designed for only the die hard
player looking for a challenge.
In advanced mode, there are 12
different moves you can do when
running, including a double spin
move if you can remember that L2
& circle initiates it. Stick with the
beginner controls if you care about
your sanity and the well being of
your game system.
Total control passing is
another advanced feature which
has more practical use. This
feature allows you to under or
overthrow a ball or throw a lob or a
bullet pass. This feature comes in
handy when you get a feel for the
game.
Overall, NCAA Gamebreaker
'98 is a better than average football
title that could take some getting
used to if you are used to Madden
style game play. The features are
fairly complete, including an
option to create players if you feel
the need.
Since this game is made by
PlayStation's in-house company,
Sony, they should have access to
the latest technology to take
advantage of the PlayStation's
fullest capabilities. There are some
improvements that could be made,
such as smoother game play and a
player name feature, but that's
what Gamebreaker '99 is for.

actually is. Still, he is a high point;
Astroesque seems much more
interesting when Mike Allred is on
the screen.
For fans of Allred's comics work,
there is another level of enjoyment.
All of his trademark obsessions with
goofy sci-fi, discordant pacing, weird
philosophy and severe facial injury
are present here. Nobody eats an
eyeball, a la the early Madman
Comics, but someone does get their
cheek bitten off, and there's a
ruptured nostril or two as well.
Unfortunately, the most charming
aspect of Allred's comics work, his
sense of humor, is sorely lacking
here. This is one somber film, and
the few attempts at humor don't
come off very well.
Overall, though, Astroesque is a
good piece of no-budget
filmmaking. If you can overlook
some of the obvious flaws caused by
lack of money, it's quite an
experience. It can be difficult to sit
through in places, however, so be
warned. If you thought Jackie Brown
was slow, you'll probably want to sit
this one out.

Attention JAZZ AT NIGHT Fans
Due to the increasing popu-
larity of these events, a ticket-
ing procedure has been imple-
mented, effective with the Fri-
day, January 30 performance in
the Mendenhall Great Room at
8:00 p.m.
Because these events are paid for with stu-
dent activity fees, ECU
students will receive one
ticket free of charge
when they present a valid ECU
One-Card at the Central Ticket Office-
Mendenhall. All other
tickets, including ECU
faculty and staff, will
be $2.50.
Advance ticket pick-up
purchase is strongly en-
couraged.

ported this program and created a
very big success.

The musicians rarely have any
idea about what pieces they will be
performing, and with what combo,
until the sound check the day of
the performance. This kind of
arrangement leaves little room for
rehearsal, but a lot of room for
spontaneity.
"You can't think about it too
much Callie mused. "You just
kind of go with it
Tickets are also
available for the
only other JAZZ AT

for Spring '98 -

thing about jazz that you don't

Mitch Butler, trombonist,

He thinks it's important that
people at least give jazz a chance,
even if they find that they don't
particularly like it.
"This is American music he
declared. "It's unique; it doesn't
copy anything
Like Butler, any of the cats will
tell you that jazz is the first original
American art form.
This will be the first Jazz at
Night since the release of the
Ensemble's new CD entitled Jazz
Directions 2-1997, which features
guest artists Bob Mintzer on
saxophone and vocalist Vanessa
Rubin. It will be available for order
or purchase at the show.
Tickets will be required for
admission, and any student with a
valid student ID can pick one up
at the central ticket office.
Admission for non-students is now
$2.50 and can be purchased there
as well or at the door.

Almost all of the songs on this
album are standards; the play list is
heavy with big band and swing
numbers. There arc four Duke
Ellington numbers and a Count
Basic song. In all of these, the
Ensemble is in top notch form.
"Caravan with Robbie Robinson's
sublime trombone solo and Jesus
Nieves' brilliant percussion licks,
is especially good.
Then there's the funky
"Dangerous Precedent Ed
Combs' guitar work is excellent
and again, Jesus Nieves delivers
some out-of-sight percussion. All
of the live tracks are beyond
words really. Knowing these cats
attend ECU actually puts some
school spirit into the old heart. It
gives a guy something to be proud
of.
One of the few modern pieces
on the record is "New Rochelle
which Bob Mintzer of the
Ycllowjackets wrote for the
Ensemble.
This recording featured here is
actually the premiere performance
of the song, which is a treat in and
of itself, but as an added bonus,
faculty member Paul Tardiff lays
down a cool, clean piano solo that
is oh so tasty.
Of the studio cuts, Count
Basie's "April in Raris" shows the
Ensemble in top form. "Moonlight
in Vermont" is a hoppin' little dish
served hot with a fiery sax solo
straight from the sax chef himself,
Vaughn Ambrose.
The album closes out with two
Ellington songs, "Cottontail

well as some outstanding solos by
the students, and a smooth vocal

shootouts. Carl Thomas provides a
mellow overtone to the song
singing the chorus, which adds
nicely to a sentimental song.
These are just a couple of
examples of what's good about
The Lox.
But the fleas come with
the dog. The groups first single, "If
You Think I'm Jiggy was a bad
choice to be the song to promote
the album. The chorus itself,
which is a rip-off of Rod Stewart's
"If You Think I'm Sexy is enough
to turn you off without having to
listen to the song, which doesnt
follow the style of a Bad Boy
parry jam. Maybe if you're forced
to hear it enough times, you'll be
desensitized to it. Otherwise,
flip past the track But there's a
track worse than that entitled
"Get This Money Everything
about the song sucks, whether it is
the lyrics, which sounds like a bad
freestyle, or the beat, which is too
slow for the style of flow.
Overall, Matey, Paver, and
Raped isn't a terrible CD; the
group just needs fine-tuning.
Sometimes, the group sounds like
they forgot the words and came up
with something, anything, to avoid
embarrassment. If they perfect
their style (better lyrics and a
smoother flow), they'll be able to
take the music world by storm if
they release a second album. But
as for this album, which has some
good tracks, some bad tracks, some
cool interludes, yet another

The East Carolinian
Special talent waivers
help athletic program
Opportunities
provided for those
denied admission
Jason Thuringer
STAFF WHITER
So you want to be a Pirate? You've
got tons of talent, but your high
school GPA and SAT scores just
don't add up to the sum of a letter
of acceptance. What do you da' A
special talent waiver is rite answer
for many ECU students.
"There is a special admissions
process for individuals with special
talents said Dr. Tom Powell,
director of admissions.
That special admissions process
includes a special talent waiver.
Students who apply to ECU but
are denied acceptance at first try
are eligible. Not ail applicants go
through this process and it is not
exclusively by the athletic
department.
"If the orchestra needs an oboe
player, ten it is my job to help that
oboe player get into ECU Powell
said.
The special talent waiver is for
applicants who have special
talents, usually in music, an,
theater, dance or sports, above
those of the average applicant. To
be admitted on a special talent
waiver, a faculty member must
petition for admission to the Dean,
who will then forward the request
to Dr. Powell.
Athletes petitioned in must still
meet the standards set forth by
the NCAA, conference and
university before they are eligible
to participate in their sport.
This can be such a complicated
procedure that the athletic
department has a full-time staff
person to ensure that ail athletes
stay within the eligibility
requirements.
Once a student is accepted on
the waiver he or she is assigned to
the academic transition program
(ATP).
3TP is a program designed to
give students who have had poor
academic performance in high
school a solid base for success in
college said Gene Owens, ATP
director.
The one-year program consists
of tutorials, supplemental
instruction, the writing center and
other academic support. These
services are available to all ECU

"Many of the 250 to 300 ATP
slots are students who had weak
SAT or ACT scores, but still have
shown an ability to perform in high
school Owens said.
Getting accepted into ECU
does not automatically mean that a
student will graduate with
degree. IPEDS (Integrated
Post-Secondary Education Data
System), a division of the federal
Department of Education, allows
for six academic years to complete
a four-year degree to be
considered for on-time graduation.
With 2338 first time freshman
students enrolling in academic
year 1991 and 1,125 of those
receiving degrees from ECU in
academic year 1996 or earlier,
ECU's most recent graduation rate
is 48.1 percent. These figures do
not account for students who
transfer to and graduate from other
universities. Using the same time
period, athletes who received
athletic-based financial aid had a
graduation rate of 58.3 percent.

SPORTS EDITOR
The men's basketball team hosted
Old Dominion University
Wednesday in a battle that sent
the Monarchs home with a
disappointing conference loss.
After coming up short in the
last two conference games against
Virginia Commonwealth and CAA
rival UNC-Wilmington, the Pirates
made the most of their open
weekend and came back strong to
down ODU 85-71.
Last year, the two schools split
their regular season games, with
each winning at home.
Wednesday's contest marked the
36th meeting in the history of the
series.
ECU was first to put points on
the board with a iayup by senior
Dink Peters. Two three-pointers
from Tony Parham and one more
from freshman Vinny Sharpe, along
with six out of eight good shots
from the foul line gave the Pirates
an eight point lead at the half, 31-
24.
"We have been playing in
practice as hard as we play in
games, and it helped us tonight
Peters said.
Othello Meadows started the
second half off on a strong note for
the Pirates with a Iayup and a jump
shot in the first minute of play.
The Monarchs added their first
points of the second half when
junior Mark Poag sent in Ms third
three-point field goal of the game
at the 17 minute mark.
It wasn't long before Meadows
took control of the ball once again
to send in a three-pointer in
return.
The Pirates caught on fire for
the remainder of the game,
shooting 82 percent from the foul
line and 52 percent from the floor
in the second period to claim a 85-
71 victory.
"It was a tough fight Peters
said. "We just wanted to win more
and we were more determined. We
stuck together as a team and we
are going to keep sticking together
as a team
"We
came out
and played
with a lot of
emotion
Parham said.
"We played
smart, and
that is
something
we have not
been doing
lately. Our
focus was to
play a full 40
minutes
The only
time in the
entire game
ODU held
the lead was
at the 7:09
mark in the
first half,
when Brion
Dunlap sent
in a three-
pointer to
gain a one
o i n t
io narch
lead.
Thirty
seconds
later,
Parham
went to the
line for two
good shots
to regain
control and a lead to last for the
rest of the game.
Parham led the Pirates with 22
points, while Sharpe, Raphael
Edwards, and Meadows also scored
in double digits with 15,14, and 12
respectively.
Both Parham and Sharpe
posted career and season highs
with their performances, while J.J-
McQueen put his first points ever
on the board with a slam dunk in
the final minute of the game.
M
Vinny Sharpe scored a career high and led his
team with 15 points in Wednesday's victory
over Old Dominion.
PHOTO St ADAM O41P0HTO
Sharpe's highest point total was
only seven prior to his performance
against the Monarchs.
"I basically just took what the
defense gave me Sharpe said.
"Whenever I was open 1 took a
shot because the coach had me out
on the court
and I had to
do my job
O 1 d
Dominion's
head coach
Jeff Cape!
said his team
did not
respond as
they arc
capable of.
"ECU was
very
aggressive
offensively
and
defensively
and we did
not respond
to that
Capel said.
"They were
very physical
and we
seemed
scared to get
hit. We just
were not
aggressive at
all taking the
ball to the
basket and
getting to
the free
throw line
ECU is now
7-0 this
season when
scoring 70 or
more points, with such wins
coming in from the games against
St. Joseph's, Ferrum, Campbell,
James Madison, Liberty,
Richmond, and of course, Old
Dominion.
With the win, the Pirates
improved their record to 8-10; 3-5
in the CAA
The Pirates will have a week-
long break before their next game,
Monday at home against George
Mason. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m.
Pure Gold Dancers ranked ninth in the nation
competition
Paul Kaplan
SENIOR WRITER
Basketball fans who do not run out
to the concession stand at halfrime
for a soft pretzel and some mustard
may have noticed the ECU Pure
Gold Dancers, For those behind
on dancing and cheering rankings,
the Pure Gold Dancers are
currently ranked ninth in the
nation behind many big names
schools like UNC, BYU and
Cincinnati, just to name a few.
"We are ranked ninth in the
nation, and not too many people
realize that Co-Captain Pam
Hines said. "We really don't get
much recognition
The Pure Gold Dancers are led
by Head Coach Amy Graham and
Co-Captains Hines and Tia
Tucker. The Pure Gold Dancers
are by no means a group of
veterans; they are made up
primirilf'of freshmen and
sophomores.
"This is the strongest
team we have had in a
while Graham said. There
is a high talent level and all
the giro work well together,
in practice things seem to
move real fast, there are a lot
of good performers
"Freshmen usually have
trouble with practices and
being on their own for the
first time Graham said.
"But they have not had any
trouble keeping their
priorities straight
The dance team, like all
the other athletes on
campus, have a strenuous
practice schedule. Three
days a week they have a
weight workout and
between four and six days a
week they have a two hour
night practice. This April
the Pure Gold Dancers will
be taking their show to
Daytona, Florida and
showing their stuff in front
of the National Dance Association-

"We are going to do
really well this year at the
competition, hopefully

Tia Tucker said.
The dancers arc
contenders for a top five
ranking at the
competition in April and
they also volunteer their
time with the Junior Pro
Team. The Junior Pro
Team is made up of 16
girls from seven years old
to 15 years old.
"We coach them every
other Sunday and teach
them dancing
techniques and also
things like character
development Tucker
said. "They are all really
sweet and they really
look up to us
So next time you are
at a home basketball
game and the teams head
to the locker room at
halftime, stick around
and take a look at the
Pure Gold Dancers.

The ECU baseball team is getting set to start
their season with new Head Coach Keith
LeClair. With several key players returning
from last year, the Pirates hope to improve on
a season that ranked them fifth in the CAA.
Two players who hope to contribute to the
improvement of the team are seniors Brian
Fields and Randy Rigsby.
Fields is a pitcher who grew up in
Greenville and played baseball at Rose High
School. He started playing ball around the
age of eight because it was his favorite sport.

Tha Eait Carolinian
Athletic department answers
questions about new logos
Student reactions
primarily positive
Travis Barkley
STAFF WRITER
When students returned to
campus from Christmas break,
many were surprised to learn that
ECU had unveiled new logos and a
bold new image.
While the reaction to the new
designs has mainly been positive,
there has been some confusion
regarding the development of the
new logos as well as the future of
Pee Dee and the older markings.
"Pee Dec will still be the
mascot at games, and the old
designs will still be used said Lee
Workman, assistant athletic
director and director of special
events. "The new designs give the
university a full series of marks
that tie together. They allow for a
new marketing approach, and
allow merchandisers to have more
options and greater creativity
When asked if students were
ever considered to design the new
logos, Workman said that students
were consulted informally, but that
the School of Art was never
considered to design the logos.
"Students were asked for
feedback along with alumni,
faculty and other groups
Workman said.
Many students wanted to know
why the logos were introduced
while most students were out of
town. Workman explained that the
logos were unveiled to coincide
with the start of conference
basketball play at home. "We
wanted to have it for the students
as they were coming back
Workman said.
Although most of the students
who were asked liked the new
designs, nearly all agreed that Pee
Dee should be kept as well.
Graduate student Andrew
DiGiovanni said he "wouldn't get
rid of Pec Dee but called the
change "a step into the future
He also said that at first the logos
"may appear unpopular, but given
time they will seem more
acceptable. Imagine what people
thought of Pee Dee when he was
introduced
Senior chemistry major Chris
Washburn wasn't thrilled about the
new logos at first, but said, "Maybe
it was a move we needed to make.
Other schools in the state and
around the country have changed,
so I think it was a good move
overall
In addition to keeping Pee Dee,
several students suggested using
the wild, shirtless Pirate mascot of
the early 1960's.
"He would definitely scare the
opposition DiGiovanni said.
Baseball
continued from page 10
transferred to ECU because he
wanted to start and also felt that
ECU had a good program he could
contribute to.
"I knew ECU had a solid
program and I just wanted to come
in and help out the team as much
as I could, Fields said.
Academically, Fields is an
economics major who hopes to
further his career as an athlete as
well as continue his education in
graduate school. Last year he was
drafte y the Milwaukee Brewers
and hopes to be picked up again
this year by a professional team.
Rr now, ECU baseball is what he
is concentrating on.
"With the team we have
returning and the new coaching
staff we should really be able to
improve on last year Fields said.
"Coach LeClair wants us to play an
aggressive style of baseball
emphasizing speed and execution.
Once we get the pitcher rotation
down after a couple of games we
should be able to have a strong
season
Rigsby is another team leader
hoping to do his part. In his third
year as a starter, he will be posted
at first base. An outfielder from
Goldsboro, he started playing
baseball at the age of eight with
friends he grew up with. After
attending Eastern Wayne High
School, Rigsby decided to bring his
talent to ECU.
"in high school I heard about
the baseball tradition at ECU
Rigsby said. "I also felt I had a
chance to play here and it was still
pretty close to home
Rigsby is a decision sciences
major. He too would like to
continue playing baseball after
college, but his primary goal is to
finish school.
Rigsby is excited about the
upcoming season under the
direction of a new coaching staff
led by Head Coach Keith LeClair.
"The new staff really brings in a
change of attitude to the team that
the players feel real good about
Rigsby said.
Rigsby feels he can contribute
much to the team's success this
season. "My biggest attributes are
my hitting and my experience I
have as a three year starter Rigsby
said.
Under the new coaching staff
and with returning players like
Fields and Rigsby, the baseball
team can look to improve and
bring the CAA championship title
home to Greenville.

NBC is offering tough-guy films
like Under Skge 2 on Feb. 8 and
Crimson Tide on Feb. 22. NBC will
be home to five Olympics starting
in 2000.
Third-place ABC offers a heavy
schedule of specials and TV
movies. There's a film produced
by Oprah Winfrey and a show

Cindy Crawford and Tyra Banks.
Fox has an episode of TkeX-Fila

DENVER (AP)�The" Denver
Broncos' Super Bowl victory is
proving to be super for sales of the
NFL team's merchandise, too.
Thousands of Broncos fans have
snapped up T-shirts and caps that
featured the words Super Bowl,
champ and champions.
Gart Sports stores sold more
than 100,000 T-shirts by midday
Monday. People were waiting
outside Sears stores when they
opened Monday morning.
"It's unbelievable. The first
place everyone went was to buy
the shirts said Cathy Zach,
manager of the Sears store in the
Wcstland Center in Lakewood.
The locker room T-shirt, which is
identical to the one the Broncos
players wore during interviews
after the Super Bowl, cost $22.95.
