Joyner Library unveiled its new logo on
Wednesday in hopes of generating student
awareness and additional funding.
"The logo has a message said Steve
Smiley, Friends of Joyner Library
president. "The columns tie the tradition
of Joyner Library and academic excellence.
The colors (purple and gold) represent the
university's colors. Its layout is about a new
era of technology in Joyner Library
ECU's new logo will be broadly
distributed in support of the new
endowment campaign. Shirts, hats,
notebooks and all other applications of
ECU logos will be candidates for using the
Friends of (the) Library logo.
During Wednesday's unveiling
ceremony. Chancellor Richard Eakin gave
thanks and support to Steve Smiley and
the Friends of Joyner Library.
"East Carolina is changing in
remarkable ways Eakin said. "The
campus is changing. The students are
changing. Joyner Library is changing, and
we have gotten a lot of support from the
region for Joyner Library
Smiley was also optimistic about what
the Friends of Joyner Library have
completed and will complete in the future.
"This dream has been a long time
coming Smiley said. "Today it is coming
true. We hope to have a book tower with an
additional 12 million volumes. Twenty
years we have been doing this, and we are
still moving onward and upward
The Friends of Joyner Library is an
organization which supports the
development of Joyner Library's
collections, staff and prestige through
membership dues and regular committee
meetings.
"ECU just moved from a
comprehensive level university to a
Doctoral II university Smiley said. "To
maintain that status, ECU has to offer at
least three Ph.Ds in three fields. That
makes ECU's competition with other
university's tougher. We need more
volumes of books for students to stay at
this level
To make that happen, Smiley says that
Joyner Library needs an additional $1
million a year, and that is where the
Friends of Joyner Library comes in.
"That ($1 million) goes far beyond the
expected growth of state appropriations
Smiley said. "The Friends are the Pirate
Club of Joyner Library
Membership dues from the Friends
contribute to Joyner Library's needed fund

increase. For faculty and staff, the dues
are
$10 a year. Individuals in the
community pay $25 a year and families
pay $35.
"We are currently developing a
student chapter of the friends Smiley
said. "We are soliciting student
volunteers to serve as docents to conduct
tours of the library
These volunteers will be both
members of the Student Friends of
Joyner Library and employees on the
payroll.
Membership fees for students will be
$1 a semester. One of the goals of the
Student Chapter is to provide financial
support and assistance to Joyner Library
Staff and to develop an awareness among
students of the crucial role Joyner
Library plays in the university.
These students will work hand in
glove with the Friends of Joyner Library;
however, they will have their own
committee for setting policies separate
from the Joyner Friends.
The Student Chapter will hold its
first meeting in April. Those interested
in serving as founding members should
contact Peter McCracken at 328-6201.

of education in this area (public schools, community colleges, and the
universitv level) has always been a mainstay of his political agenda.
Working closely with ECU, he has helped get appropriations for many
of the latest building projects on the university's campus.

mgMgk of schedule
AMBER TATL'M
STAFF WRITER
ECU's branches of Army ROTC and Air
Force ROTC have planned many events for
themselves this semester including a
speaker and a variety of recreational
activities.
The Army branch, along with the School
of Social Work, have scheduled a visit from
Tuskegee air pilot Dr. John B. Turner in
April.
The Tuskegee air pilots were the first
African-Americans to fly in combat for the
United States under a bill passed by
President Roosevelt in 1948.
"The event is really exciting since only
four or five Tuskegee airmen are still alive
said Cadet Colonel Ray Erickson of the Air
Force.
At the end of March, a combination
picnic and softball event is on the calendar.
A warrior program is to be held where
cadets will receive awards for those
achievements that go above and beyond the
call of duty.
"We will get to go on a ride in an F-16
aircraft; it's really a big deal Erickson said.
The cadets are evaluated on a point
system. They receive points for
participating in departmental events.
Those who rank in the top four out of this
system will be the ones who go for a ride in
the F-16.
An even bigger occasion is the
19th anniversary of the Air Force division in
Jury. Because of the National Security
Act of 1947, the Air Force and Army are two
separate components.
Army ROTC has a calendar full of
interesting activities. Awards ceremonies,
field tests, road races and military balls are
among the scheduled events.
"We give support throughout the year to
the color guard as well Captain Mike
Drake said.
Basic training is required either between
the freshman and sophomore years or the
sophomore and junior years. Drake teaches
freshman military science courses in which
students learn basic skills, such as land
navigation and first aid training.
"We have six scholarships to give out
Drake said. "They are fairly easy
Only four qualified applicants have
applied so far, so more candidates are
needed.
"These scholarships pay for tuition,
books and allot $1,500 spending money
Drake said.

Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
The talks were inconclusive.

Construction management
degree approved by UNC board
Degree to supply
graduatesfor
emerpngfield"
Sarah Valliere
STAFF WRITER
The UNC Board of Governors
approved a bachelor's degree in
construction management for ECU.
The university will be the only in
the state to offer the certified
program as of Jan. 16.
It is now offered at Virginia
Tech, Clemsbn University and a
few other relatively large schools,
according to Darryl Davis, dean of
the ECU School of Industry and
Technology.
"The program started as a
concentration in another degree
level of technology in the early
80s Davis said.
According to Davis, construction
management is an "emerging field"
because twenty years ago
construction was managed under a
different philosophy. Now it is
much more involved and more
complicated and "is becoming
highly computerized
A significant increase in student
enrollment, involvement and
interest in the program is what led
to the decision of making
construction management a major,
according to Davis.
The program is also accredited
by The American Council for
Construction Education (ACCE).
Krugar said that Construction
2660 and 2664 are good
introduction courses.
"Job possibilities are working in
project management, working in a
specialized area or with specialized
subcontractors, working for a
customer (banking firm or fast food
restaurant), working with services
and materials related to
construction and working for major
developers Davis said.
"Students are best prepared for
fields of project management
Davis said. "Quite a few go into
business for themselves
The average starting salary for
graduates is about $30,000 and
there are "unlimited salary
possibilities Krugar said.
To find more out about the
program call the construction
management department at 328-

U.N Iraq commence talks on
warheads amid criticism of Butler
WA1EL Faleh
P W R I T E R
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) �Iraq's foreign minister
accused U.S. and British leaders Sunday of " a cheap
kind of rhetoric" aimed at creating a phony crisis over
U.N. weapons inspections.
Foreign Minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf said
that Iraq was cooperating with the U.N. inspectors
and called for U.N. technical evaluations, which began
Sunday, to go ahead in a calm way in order to verify
the facts
He also characterized the chief of the U.N.
inspectors, Richard Butler, as
this fake" and urged that he be reprimanded for
an interview with The New York Times in which he
said Iraq had enough biological weapons "to blow
away Tel Aviv, or whatever
Shortly after al-Sahhaf spoke, a Russian envoy
arrived in Baghdad for his second effort in a week to
end the standoff between Iraq and the United
Nations.
The envoy, Viktor Posuvalyuk, was dispatched by
Russian President Boris Yeltsin to try again to find a
political solution to the dispute. He told state-run
Iraqi television that he was carrying a letter from
Yeltsin
"related to the complicated situation in the
region" and would brief Iraqi officials on Russia's
consultations with other countries.
France also announced it was sending a top
diplomat to Baghdad, and Turkeyoffered to send a
mediator.
Al-Sahhaf described the diplomatic missions as
' 'gaining more momentum He characterized them
as containing ideas, suggestions and more
elaborations" but declined to give details.
Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine
Albright was on a tour of European and Arab capitals to
try to win support for a possible U.S. military strike
against Iraq to force it to comply with U.N.
resolutions.
On a stop Sunday in Israel, Albright warned
Baghdad that any l�, attack would be ' substantial"
and designed to eradicate Iraq's ability to use weapons
of mass destruction.

H. JOSEF HERBERT
AP WRITER
WASHINGTON (AP) �
President Clinton disclosed a five-
year, $6.3 billion package of tax
incentives and research Saturday
to spur development of ultra fuel-
efficient automobiles and other
energy-saving technologies.
Promising to "mobilize
cutting-edge technology in the
fight against global warming
Clinton said the program will show
that the United States can curb
heat-trapping greenhouse gases by
conserving energy while
preserving economic growth.
"Working together we will
overcome the challenge of global
climate change and create new
avenues of growth for our
economy Clinton said in
highlighting the
weekly radio address.
A cornerstone of the program
would give tax credits of $3,000 to
$4,000 to buyers of the next
generation of fuel-efficient cars to
boost development of the vehicles
expected to be up to three times
as fuel efficient as today's models.
Many auto makers have said
they plan to have cars in
showrooms within seven years that
run 50 to 70 miles on a gallon of
gasoline.
The climate-change package,
an early step to comply with the
global warming treaty agreed in
December in Kyoto, Japan, will be
included in Clinton's fiscal 1999
budget to be announced Monday.
Both the tax cuts and new
spending must be approved by
Congress. Some
Republicans have greeted the
package with skepticism. Sen.
James Inhofe, R-Okla one of TTie
Kyoto treaty's sharpest critics, said
Clinton's proposed incentives
should be put on hold until the
Senate decides whether to ratify
the treaty. He accused the
president of trying v to mold the
behavior of U.S. businesses to
conform with the global warming
ideology
The climate treaty, unlikely to
come up for Senate ratification
this year,
specifies that the United States
reduce greenhouse emissions �
mainly carbon dioxide� to 7
percent below 1990 levels by
2008-2012.
Clinton's climate package
includes $3.6 billion worth of tax
credits and $2.7 billion in
additional spending over five
years, beginning in 1999, on
research related to the prevention
of climatic change.

ECU officials should be praised for inviting Fred Chappell to serve as speaker for the
university's spring commencement. Chappell, a respected North Carolina writer and
educator, is an excellent choice.
Chappell is not the president of a bank or a major financial contributor to the university,
but he will no doubt make an important contribution to ECU and to its students. His
contribution will be as a source of inspiration.
A commencement speaker should be someone who will inspire students in their lives and
careers after graduation day is over, and Chappell certainly should serve as an inspiration.
The Canton native teaches English and creative writing at the University of North Carolina
at Greensboro, where he serves as the Burlington Industries Professor of English. Chappell
holds BA and MA degrees from Duke University.
His poetry and fiction have received widespread praise and accommodation. Among the
awards Chappell has received includes, the T.S. Eliot Prize for Creative Writing from the
Ingersoll Foundation, the Bollingen Prize in Poetry of Yale University Library, the Prix de
Meilleur des Livres Etrangers of the Academie Francaise and Aiken Taylor Award in Modern
Poetry. North Carolina honored him in 1986 by awarding him the O. Max Gardner Award,
which is the highest honor the University of North Carolina system can bestow on any faculty
member. A collection of essays on Chappell's work, edited by ECU professor Dr. Patrick
Bizzaro, will be published soon.
North Carolina should be proud to claim Chappell as its son, and ECU students should be
proud as well to have him as their graduation speaker. Hopefully, in between bouncing beach
balls and throwing their caps in the air, they will pick up a few words of wisdom from
Chappell. He is a man who has already earned his spot in literary history, and, hopefully, he
will leave his mark on the lives of ECU graduates. Congratulations ECU, you've done a good
job, and you're giving ECU students a wonderful graduation gift.

OPINION
Columnist
Britt
NiEYCUTT.
Everybody's doin' it; why can't I too:
?
�.the destruction sets off an
innate biological alarm clock
in our Alpha Malethat
floods his body with
pheromones, testosterone and
all sorts of other chemicals
that us lowly subordinate
males can only imagine.
I figured out the reason why
President Clinton can't keep his
Johnny in his pants: El Nino. It's
the only explanation.
You see, the destruction that El
Nino causes sets off an innate
biological alarm clock in our Alpha
Male (i.e. Slick Wiry) that floods his
body with pheromones,
testosterone and all sorts of other
chemicals that us lowly subordinate
males (i.e. opinion columnists, pizza
delivery guys, etc.) can only
imagine. These chemicals flood his
system like 1-440 at 5 p.m.
His brain can't think Iraq, Cuba,
the Pope. All it's thinking is sex, sex,
sex. It's a survival of the fittest kind
of thing.
The peril that El Nino portends
fills him with the need to reproduce
those Alpha Male genes in as many
young nubile (i.e. rcproductively
fertile) women as possible. The
President must disperse his seed as
far and wide as possible to ensure
the continuation of the human
species. He's really doing it for us.
In ancient China, an emperor in
the Chou dynasty had 37 wives and
81 concubines. He even had
administrators to keep track of the
women's menstrual cycles so that he
could plant his superior genes at the
most fertile time of the month for
each and every one in his harem.
Roman biographer Suetonius
said of the Roman Emperor
Augustus: "His friends used to
behave like Toranius, the slave
dealer, in arranging his pleasures for
' him�they would strip down girls of
their clothes and inspect them as
though they were for sale
Aztec King Nezahualpilli had
more than 100 children, as did
Ramses II of Egypt. It's innate.
Another Aztec King, Montczuma II,
supposedly had over 4,000 women
such that "average Joe" Indians
could scarcely find a wife when
needed.
And think about Bill Clinton.
He's the leader of the free world
and El Nino is threatening doom
and apocalypse. It's a wonder he
doesn't have half the female
population of America lined up
outside his bedroom awaiting his
magnificent sperm.
We should all be thankful that
President Clinton is willing to
sacrifice his time to ensure the
species. He's a hard working man.
Who else could balance the budget,
carry on multiple affairs, keep a wife
happy, put a kid through college, get
reelected and inveigle Americans
into believing he is stronger than
the mighty El Nifto? I'm sure he's
had more powerful blows than this
before.
LETTER
to the Editor
Virtually anyone can be an
overnight superstar.
However, if the prospect of
something so large scale as an
affair with the president
� seems a tittle out of your
grasp, there are several
alternatives.
Where do I get in line to sleep with
die president? Sign me up; l want
in.
This seems to be the quickest,
easiest path to fame and fortune,
and I want my share. Look how well
it turned out for superstars Gennifer
Flowers and Paula Jones! And
quickly rising to bask in the glory of
the media is newcomer Monica
Lewinsky, who, at the tender age of
24, is already an incredible success.
The formula seems so easy.
Number one: Find a president with
great political prowess, but horribly
weak willpower. Number two: Flirt.
You don't really have to sleep with
him, or even have a glance at the
Rresidential penis (oh, how little
Irs. Jones knew). Simply cast a
sufficient enough shadow on the
president's character to create a
media frenzy, and watch the book
offers, movie offers, and requests to
be on Geraldo roll in.
See? Virtually anyone can be an
overnight superstar. However, if the
prospect of something so large scale
as an affair with the president seems
a little out of your grasp, there are
several alternatives. For instance,
there is always an available Kennedy
or two who would be more than
willing to have some extra-marital
fun. And for those of you who find
it to be an impossibility to have first
-person contact with a high- ranking
official, there is still a loophole for
you. You can sleep with someone
who claims that she slept with a
president! I'm not kidding, folks.
These people arc getting press
time, too. The money may not be
quite as good, but hey, everybody
deserves their fifteen minutes,
right?
It astounds me how much money
there is to be made when everyone
finds out that a public figure can't
control his own libido. People flock
to be the next notch on the bedpost.
The evidence of this phenomena is
overwhelming. Wilt Chamberlain
had 2,000 women. Bill Clinton and
Litde Willy haw seen more action
than the troops in the Gulf.
Elizabeth Taylor has had more
husbands than she has fingers on
which to display her wedding bands.
Why are people so anxious to
define themselves by who they've
had sex with? I think that it is
something instinctive that makes us
want everyone else to know that we
have been mated by the people's
choice. It's a neanderthal popularity
contest, in a way, an I'm-gonna-pass-
on-bctter-gencs-than-you kinda
thing. It goes right along with
questions like why do we slow
down to stare at the scene of an
accident and why we touch that
bruise even though we know it
hurts. It's something uniquely
human that that comes from the
primitive, scary depths of our
minds. One of those things that we,
perhaps, would rather not
understand.
By the way, does anyone know
how I can get Chelsea's phone
number?
Abortion hurts many women in many ways
I have heard speeches on abortion,
both pro and con since I became a
college student two years ago. Just
about everyone is in favor of
"choice
But, every woman with whom I
have talked after class who
experienced abortion expresses the
fact "no one told me how it was
going to make me feel Abortion
hurts! It is not uncommon for
women who have experienced
abortion to live with the secret,
internalized pain for five to even 20
years after the abortion before
admitting that she needs help
overcoming the pain.
One major factor that must be
resolved is overcoming the sense of
not being able to forgive one's self.
The other is the need to grieve, in a
healthy way, the missing unborn
baby and to seek the Lord's
forgiveness and healing. Post
abortion syndrome is very much like
post-traumatic strcs disorder.
Abortion causes both physical and
emotional pain in a great number of
women.
If any teen-aged girl or woman
would wish to participate in a
survey, please feel free to contact
me. If you or someone you know
were not given adequate
information and counseling prior to
the. abortion we have a survey
instrument if you wish to participate
in the post-abortion research.
No matter how one looks at
abortion, the emotional aftermath is
a reality. Abortion wounds a woman's
soul! R a free copy of "How Does
Abortion Really Hurt Women
write to me: Rt. 2, Box 102, Leon,
WV 25123.
And if there is anyone in need of
medical, legal or emotional help to
deal with their post-abortion
problem, call 1-800-634-2224. Also
for anyone who needs help with an
unplanned pregnancy, call 1-800-
8548-5683.

or over 25 years Aerosmith has been turning
but albums and headlines that have become
part of music history. Considered in the '70s
to be one of the paramount rock and roil acts
(along with KISS), the band hit rock bottom
towards the end of that decade before turning around in
the '80s with a comeback that most bands can only
dream of.
Now, in the nineties, while candy pop, grunge and
political correctness have dominated the music
industry, Aerosmith has remained the black sheep,
bucking trends and still riding high.
The band formed in carry 1970, when Steven Tyler
went to see a blues band in a club one night. In the past
Tyler has said that they were terrible, but they knew
what music was about because they didn't care. They
were just having fun.
Tyler approached the band after the show and asked
to join. Admiring his previous band experience, the
band immediately said yes and Aerosmith was formed.
Their debut album, the self-tilted Aerosmith, sold
well in the band's home area of New England, but went
unnoticed in the rest of the country. The band hit the
road as an opening act for whomever would give them a
gig, and their second album, Get Your Wings, did
considerably better on the national front.
By the time Toys In The Attic was released, the band
was notorious for their live shows and was nearing the
top of the musical mountain. Toys contained the hits
"felkThis Way and "Sweet Emotion" and became the
album that made radio stations take note. Singles from
earlier albums were rereleased and songs like "Same Ol'
Song and Dance" and the classic "Dream On" climbed
the charts as well.
Rockers still going strong
after more than 25 years
Unfortunately,
while the band
was on the take, so
was their drug use.
While this began
to effect their live
show, rowdy fans
stole the focus as
fights became
common.
By the time
Rocis was released,
nearly everyone
knew of
Aerosmith, either
from the radio or
from newspaper
headlines. Rocks,
considered by
Rolling Stone
magazine as one of
the essential
albums of all time,
continued what
Toys had started
and the band was
finally ruling the rock and roll roost.
However, the band was falling apart from the inside
out. The record company had them on a schedule that
made the band come off the road for a few months to
make an album before heading back out again. When
recording commenced on Draw The Line (a reference
to cocaine usage), the band had ceased to be a unit. Joe
Perry would stumble in stoned beyond recognition,
record his guitar parts and leave again. Tyler behaved
in much the same way, earning the duo the title of the
Toxic Twins. Looking back neither remembers much
about the recording of that album.
Finally, as the decade pulled to a close, so did this
version of Aerosmith. Backstage, before a show, the
wife ofbassist Tom Hamilton poured milk on the head
of Perry's wife in a spouse-spat, and Perry called it
quits. Shortly after, rhythm guitarist Brad Whitford
followed Perry's lead.
While Perry and Whitford both explored other
musical options through The Joe Perry Project and the
guitar duo group WnitfordSt. Holmes, Aerosmith
continued on with replacments, but only to mediocre
success. It seemed as if it was only a matter of time
before the band would be no more.
Then, in 1981, after having time to think things over,
Perry and Whitford attended a Valentine's show of
Aerosmith's in their hometown of Boston. The band
Lock up your grandmothers. It's Aerosmith.

made ammends
and shortly after
the Back In The
Saddle tour was
underway.
After signing a new
record deal with
Geffen Records,
the band recorded
what was to be
their comehark
album, Done With
Mirrors. In a stunt
of true Aerosmith
proportions, all the
information on the
album inlay,
including the title
on the cover, was
printed backwards
so that a listener
would have to hold
the album up to a mirror to read. Unfortunately, the
backwards writing was more interesting than the music
on the album, and fans paid no mind.
Just as it appeared the final nail had been hammered
into Aerosmith's coffin, the band got a call from Run-
DMC. Their producer had suggested sampling "Walk
This Way" and the rap group invited Perry and Tyler
down to hear the mix. Perry brought his guitar and the
two ended up recording a new version with Run-DMC,
instead of sampling the old. The song was a huge
success and the two groups launched the first rockrap
tour in history.
Coming off this new hope for success the band went
into the studio and recorded Permanent Vacation. With the
hits "Angel "Rag Doll and "Dude (Looks Like A
Lady) Vacation became the album to put the band back
on top.
The '90s were ushered in with a bang as a new clean
and sober Aerosmith released Pump, an album
containing no fewer than four hits. This album also
continued the love affair with MTV that "Dude" had
created as videos for "Love In An Elevator and "Janie's
Got a Gun" became mainstays on the music channel.
Their next release, Get a Grip, continued the trend as
the song "Cryin was soon voted Most Popular Video of
All-Time by MTV viewers.
As the decade nears its end, Aerosmith has shown no

signs of slowing down. After releasing Nine IJves on
Columbia as part of a new multi-million dollar, multi-
record deal, the band hit the road once more. t
Despite being in their mid to late forties, the band,
looks like teenagers on stage, as they showed an-
audience in Greensboro over the weekend.
On stageWhitford, Hamilton and drummer Joey
Kramer played the straight men for the wild duo of
TylerPerry. Tyler, who started the show with full energy
worked the crowd in a way only a handful of frontmen
ran.
As the night wore on, he started to show slight signs-
of fatigue, causing Perry to pick up the pace. Perry,
having started out the evening low-key in a shirt and tie,
slowly lost the tie and began unbuttoning the shirt. The
looser the shirt got, the more energy he seemed to have,
until by the end of the show he was dancing around
stage as confident and happy as a ten-year old on the
playground. As for the set-list went, it spanned the'
decades as "Nine Lives" segued into "Love In Arf
Elevator and "Dream On" suddenly became "Cryin t,
At one point,
Tyler asked
Hamilton what
album the next
song was from.
Announcing
that they were
going to play
one from Rocks,
Tyler summed
things up nicely.
Looking at
Kramer who
seemed worried
about
remembering
the song, Tyler
exclaimed,

Dance '98 opens
Thursday
Stephanie Russell
THEATRE REVIEWER
Attention dance aficionados and
Lanyone else who loves to move.
This Thursday, the East Carolina
Playhouse presents Dance '98. This
dance "concert" features six
different pieces, each unique in
focus, style, music and
choreographer. There is something
for everyone.
Opening the night of dance is a
classical ballet choreographed by
Joseph Carow and Cindy Mancini.
The piece is influenced by the
music of classical composer Verdi.
This lyrical ballet has no plot, but is
driven by the melodies and rhythms
of Verdifs music. The piece is
entitled "Vespri Variations" also
inspired by Verdi.
The second dance is "Touch
Tone choreographed by Patricia
Weeks. The piece examines part of
our modern dairy lives' automated
phone recordings. This number
satirizes the ways that this
technology both simplifies and
frustrates our lives.
"At the Palm Court" celebrates
the dance craze that hit the United
States in the '20s and '30s. The
Palm Court of the Plaza Hotel was
famous for its big dance band and
swinging music that attracted
tuxedoed men and bejeweled
ladies. This piece is choreographed
by guest instructor, Clarine Powell.
Guest artist Kennet Oberly
presents Last Sonata, performed to
the music of Ludwig Van
Beethoven. This piece is described
as an "imprint of a final creative
moment of capturing loose ideas
and formulating a whole picture
that is organic, growing, evolving
and exploding into nothingness
which leaves the conscience in a
continued expanded state
"Life's a Beach" is a satirical look
at a trip to the beach. How much

Convicted sex offender says no to sign
COVTNGTON, Ky (AP) A man who
tried to hire a woman for sex is new
opting to go to oil rather than wear a
sign in public telling others about what
he did.
Donald Varner pleaded guilty to
solicitation of prostitution and was
sentenced Thursday to 10 days in jail.
District Judge Martin Sheehan said
&mer could avoid the jail time as long
as he has no other prostitution-related
convictions for two years and wore a
sandwich board sign for two hours
Monday during lunchtime.
The sign was to say,v v I am Donald
Vamer and I was convicted of trying to
mOViereview
buy sex in Covington
But Varner telephoned Sheehan on
Friday and said he would not wear the
sign.
Vamer, from suburban Cincinnati,
was arrested Jan. 22 after he offered to
pay $30 to $100 to have sex with an
undercover police officer, police said.

Imagine you're a member of a
lucrative candy pop band, world
famous, having recorded two
albums in under a year's time,
both of which went straight up
the charts, and now you're
starring in a motion picture that
focuses on the hardships of
modern insta-fame. No, you're
not a member of the Beatles.
You're a member of the Spice
Girls and Spiceworld is your first
dip into the fickle and formidable
world of film making.
Most thinking people actually
expect the Spice Girls movie to
stink, really stink. Pretty much
everyone except the millions of
prepubescent girls around the
world expect the Girls to ham it up
and show themselves for the
brainless ditzes they truly are.
There are probably a couple
hundred people all across America
who went to watch the movie
opening weekend because of this.
Walking into a theater filled with
ll-year-old girls was a very, well,
humbling experience. Watching
their mothers watch our small parry
of college seniors file to the front of
the theater brought memories of the

glories of New Kids on the Block or
Menudo.
Fortunately, the movie was
actually worth the social stigma it
cost to go see it. It was almost even
worth the matinee ticket. It was no
powerful drama, no gripping
documentary, and not even a very
funny comedy.
It didn't however, stink, which
was the expected outcome. The
Spice Girls, in the vein of Hard Day's
Night (a movie focusing on the
hubbub surrounding,
the Beatles) poke fun at
themselves, the record,
industry, tabloids and
just about anybody"
except for their fans. �

decker bus driven by
Meatloaf (who, when
asked to clean the
toilets on the bus
replied "Hey. I love
these Girls. I'd do
anything for them. But I
won't do that) The
bus, like Dr. Who's
with their vehicle, the Tardis, is
dimensionally
trancendental (that
means it's bigger on the
inside than it is on the
outside). From time to time the
Girls' manager calls his manager,
played cryptically by Roger Moore,
who offers such sage advice as "The

where he's been, but doesn't know

Back in the '60s folks were still scared of Communism and
Nuclear War. Rock and
Roll was still the Devil's
music. Star Wars was
just a twinkle in
George Lucas' eye and
the find of the World
was only 21 years away.
According to the movie
Conquest of the Planet of tie
Apes, 1991 marked the
Year Apes Quit Taking
No" for an Answer, stood up
and expressed their God-given
rights as free individuals. A nice
simian fellow by the name of Caesar
(Roddy McDowell, in an ape suit) rose
up and led the apes to their freedom
from their human (and ironically,
American) oppressors.
Before any of that could happen
though, the good astronaut Taylor
(Charlton Heston) had to travel
thousands of years into the future,
to the 34th century, to start the
chain of events leading up to the 1991 revolution. That was Planet of the
Apes, the first of the five movies in this saga, which chronicles Taylor's
surprise reaction to the chain of events he was getting ready to cause.
Understand that? Me neither.
Taylor didn't really like the headache it was giving him, which explains
his blowing the Earth to smithereens in the (first) sequel, Beneath the Planet
of the Apes which, of course opened the door for past events to occur in the future
of the series.

Pirates struggle in
conference play
TRACY M. LAUBACH
SPORTS EDITOR
The ECU men's basketball team
hosted George Mason on Monday
night for a conference battle that
posted a 79-73 overtime victory for
the Patriots.With just seven games left
to be played in the regular season, the
Pirates fell to 9-10 overall, 3-6 in the
CM with the loss.
ECU got off to a slow start in the
first half, putting only three points on
the board in the first seven minutes of
play with a three-point basket by Tony
Parham.
Although the Pirates trailed for the
entire first half of play, they headed to
the locker room at halftime with a one
point advantage over the Patriots, 31-
30. Parham sent in his second three-
pointer of the evening with 22.9
seconds left on the clock to gain the
first Pirate lead of the game and end
the half.
However, Parham wasn't the only
one fighting to turn the game around
in the first period. Othello Meadows
lead the team in scoring at halftime
with eight, while teammates Raphael
Edwards, Dink Peters and Alphons
van Ierland posted seven, five and four
respectively
The Patriots were quick to regain
the lead at the start of the second half,
except this time, ECU was right
behind them to answer to just about
every good shot they sent to the net.
The seesaw action went into effect
in the second half as the two teams
struggled to maintain the lead. One or
two points separated the teams up
until there was only 6.4 seconds on
the clock and a 61-61 score on the
board after George Mason's Erik
Herring sent a three-pointer in for the
tie and ticket into overtime.
With five more minutes put on the
clock, George Mason executed from the foul
line and the floor to regain control of the ball
game and close ECU out by a six point spread.
Meadows posted 19 points for ECU, while
Edwards turned in 15 and Parham ended up
with 14.
ECU head coach Joe Dooley said that it is
the little things that end up making the
difference in games like the one against the
Senior

Tony Parham scored in double digits for the Pirates, posting
now holds a 3-6 CAA record and has seven more games left
before the tournament begins.

"In overtime, they took control of the
game and they had a lot of momentum
Dooley said. "They made their free throws,
got rebounds, and made plays when they had
to
George Mason's head coach Jim Larranaga
said that the two teams made for a good
matchup, and he is extremely pleased with
the win.
"The league is very
well balanced,
Larranaga said. "But
tonight's game does
not effectively
represent how good
the CAA league is.
We came so close to
getting wins against
James Madison and
UNC-Wilmington, so
it feels good to get
this one.
Parham said that
although the loss is
disappointing for
ECU, tomorrow is a J
new day to think J
about.
"We are not going to
stop working
Parham said. "We are
going to go back up to
Richmond and look
for a win. The season
has been frustrating
but we can't give up.
We need to move
on
With Richmond
ahead, Edwards said
that sometimes it is
difficult to forget
about tough losses,
but the team needs
to keep thinking
positively.
"Coming back to
practice to move on is
hard because
sometimes you arc
still thinking about
the loss, but the
younger guys need to
see our heads up
Edwards said. "We
might keep losing but
we might start
winning. We still have
a tournament to go to,
and at the
tournament, everyone
comes in with a 0-0
record
The Richmond game should prove to be a
true test, as the Spiders will look for revenge
for the 77-67 loss they suffered, to the Pirates
in Greenville just 2 weeks ago.
"We know that Richmond will be a war
Meadows said. "They are looking to get back
at us, so we have to go Jn there with
confidence and just play ball

Men's track team competes in third indoor meet
Pirates perform well
at Rod McCiay
Invitational
SCOTT ROSE
STAFF WBITE
This weekend, the men's and
women's track teams traveled to
the Rod McCray Invitational
hosted by the University of
Kentucky. This was the third
indoor meet of the season for the
Pirates.
The men's track team ran well,
finishing in the top five four times
and in the top 10 five rimes. ECU
ran not only against other schools
but also against other amateurs.
Ramondo North ran extremely
well in the 55-meter hurdles.
After qualifying for the finals with
a time of 7.74, he then took third
place overall with a time of 7.63.
Tremayne Nunley placed
seventh in both the preliminary
and final events of the 55-meter
hurdles. He also improved his
time from the preliminary to the
final by shaving his 7.85 to a 7.77
in the final round.
In the 55-meter dash, Titus
Haygood ran his best time of the
year with a 6.46 finish and took
sixth place, while Britt Cox
finished right behind Haygood
with a time of 6.47.
"I tried something differenc
with Titus' start Head Coach
Bill Carson said. "We are going to
go back to his regular start. I was
wrong to mess around with his

with four runners in the top 5.

start but now we know that and
we will work from here
Derrick Ingram posted his best
rime of the year in the 400-meter
dash. This '97 AIl-American
finished fourth with a time of
47.77 seconds, and was followed
by fellow teammates Trone
Dozier and '97 AIl-American
Mike Miller, who placed sixth
and seventh with times of 48.20
and 48.29 respectively.
"This bodes well for the future
of our team Carson said.
In the 200-meter dash North
led the Pirates with a rime of
22.03, taking 12th place. North
was followed by his teammates
John Twitty, who finished with a
time of 22.30, and Haygood, who
came in with a time of 22.31.
Rashawn Deans finished up with
a 22.33 time.
"There is great potential here
for our 200 Carson said. "Right
now my guys are in the low 22's
and eventually that will mean they
will get to the low 21's which will
be good enough to finish on the
top five. We have a lot of depth
here which is a good sign
ECU's 4 x 400 relay team
finished strong with a second
place finish behind Kentucky.
Trone Dozier ran the first leg in
48.0 followed by Derrick Ingram
and Miller with times of 48.3 and
47.6. The final leg was ran by Lynn
Stewart with a time of 49.2.
"We performed better than last
week (Virginia Tech Invitational)
but we still have a long way to go
Carson said. "I have the people to
make the times, we just have to
make the adjustments. There is a
lot of potential for the 4 x 400 rc'iy
team. They can get their time
from the 48' to the 47's and that
would put us in the top four or five
in the country
Jamie Mancc placed fifth in the
3000-meter run with a rime of
8:50.58 seconds.
The men's track team will
travel to Reno, Nev. for the Reno
Invitational this weekend.
The Lady Pirates also did well
at the invitational. The highlight
of the weekend was Nicky Goins'
performance, leading the Pirates
in the 55-meter dash with a time
of 7.11. This placed her fourth but
more importantly, it qualified her
for the ECEA Indoor
Championships on March 7-8 in
Boston, Mass.
Kai Eason finished 17th in the
55-meter dash, a remarkable
performance considering that he
has been out of the line-up for
some time now!

ECU traveled to UNC-
Wilmington on Jan. 24 to face their
biggest rival of the year, with the
men picking up their first victory
over the Seahawks in six yean.
The men held only a one point
advantage through the first three
events but pulled away after senior
Jim Broughai won the 50-meter
freestyle.
"We swam great and
completely dominated said
Head Coach Rick Kobe.
The Seahawks 400-meter relay
team was no match for the Pirates.
ECU's powerful lineup of Andy
Byrnes, Jim Broughai, Jarret
Martin and Lee Hutchens reigned
over Wilmington with nearly a
three second victory.
Richard Chen and Brandon
Tilley also contributed by
winning their solo events.
As the season comes to a close,
Lady Pirates are experiencing
more of a struggle as the Lady
Seahawks handed the Pirates
their second loss of the season
with a final score of 149-94.
"We swam great but lost a very
close meet, Kobe said.
Sophomore Hollie Butler led
ECU with victories in the 200-
and 500-meter freestyle.
Also contributing was freshman
Tracey Ormand, who won the
1000-meter
freestyle and Cammy Crossen
in the 200 meter butterfly.
On Jan. 31 Virginia Tech hosted
the Pirates to their final regular
season meet.

participation.
The Basketball Shooting
Challenge tests the hoop
marksmanship skills of ECU
roundballers in a variety of
shooting contests including free
throws, hot shots, three-point
shooting and the halftime
shootout.
Participants may elect to
participate in one, two, three or all
four contests as desired. Each
contest rr&y be attempted twice.
T-shirts will be given to the top
men's and women's scores in Free
Throws, Hot Shots, Three Point
Shooting, and the overall
champion. Individuals who
successfully complete the
Halftime Shootout will also win a
t-shirt.
In the free throw competition,
the participant shoots 25
consecutive attempts. The
winner is the individual with the
most successful tosses. In the
event of a tie, the player with the
most consecutive successful free
throws will be declared the
winner.
Hot shots is a timed event in
which participants will have 60
seconds to accumulate points by
making shots from specific spots
on the floor, each with a
designated point value. The final
score for a participant will be the
sum total of all successful
attempts within the one minute
time period.
The three-point shootout is
similar to an event which takes
place as a part of the NBA All-Star
weekend. Each player will shoot
five shots from five spots around
the three point arc within a one
minute 15 second time period.
The first four shots at each spot
count as one point, while the fifth
ball is worth two points. The
winner is the individual who totals
the greatest amount of points.
The fourth event, the halftime
shootout, is based upon the
popular halftime tradition at ECU
home basketball games. Players
attempt to make a layup, free
throw, three point shot and
halfcourt shot within a 35 second
time period.
In the 1997 Basketball
Shooting Challenge, 105ofECUs
finest tested their skills in an
attempt to win a t-shirt. Among
those expected to participate are
defending champions Brian
Lowrcy and Hope Murray (free
throws), Timothy Rowland and
Crystal Hickman (three-point
shooting), Brian Murphy and
Takesha Wall (hot shots), and
David Owen and Alison Batts
(overall).
In addition, the hot rumor on
campus is that Wu "Eagle Eye"
Donie will be leaving his position
as player-coach of the CBA's
"Yakima Sun Kings" to
participate.

Continued from page 11
The Pirate men lost their
second meet of the year with a
final score of 139-96.
After falling behind early,
sophomore Matt Jabs came
through by winning the 40-meter
freestyle. ECU would not win
another event until the next to last
' meet of the day when senior
captain Tilley prevailed with a
victory in the 200 breast.
"Virginia Tech was pumped and
ready to go Kobe said.
On the women's side, the
Pirates won three events, all which
-followed an early 96 point lead.
�The Pirate winners included
Casey Dodge on the 3-m diving
' board and Kim Field in the 200
breast. The only other Pirate first-
place of the day came from the 400
meter relay team, consisting of
SandraOssman, Amanda Atkinson,
Adrienne Cross and Cynthia
Clawson.
This final meet dropped the
men's team to a record of 8-2 and
'the women to 7-3.
The season will conclude with
the GAA Championship on Feb.
18-21 held in Chatham, Va at
Hargrave Military Academy.
"It is very possible that if we
swim well we have a chance at
another championship Kobe said.
ECU's three time defending
CAA champion women's team is
favored along with UNC-
Wilmington for the 97-98
championship. The men have only
James Madison to threaten their
way to the conference title.
"We are a team that if
everything goes right could win
the championship Kobe said.
"We have potential
With a little over two weeks to
prepare, the Pirates hope to be
well rested and healthy to
compete at their finest, and bring
another title back home to
Greenville.
