SGA vice president's enrollment status questioned
McManus saysall
a big mix-up
AMY L. ROYSTER
EDITOR-IN-CHIEF
Faced with a swirl of
controversy and allegations
concerning his eligibility to
hold office, the SGA vice
president offered answers
Wednesday to several
officials.
Sean McManus, who
vehemently denied any
wrongdoing on his part,
faced questions involving
his status as a student,
personal international
phone calls placed from his
office and a receipt turned
in for the reimbursement of
books.
The Dean of Students'
office verified McManus
had not enrolled at East
Carolina University for the
spring semester as of
February 3. This placed
McManus in violation of
Article 4, Section 2, of SGA's
constitution, which states
that requirements,
including full-time
enrollment, for holding the
vice president's position are
the same as requirements
for the president's position.
McManus, who recently
returned from an internship
in Arizona, denied any
knowledge that he was not
enrolled.
"I had enrolled for this
semester at the end of last
semester McManus said.
"I had some outstanding
tickets with Parking and
Traffic Services. I'm
guessing that was the reason
my schedule was dropped
According to Parking and
Traffic Services' policy, it is
" had some outstanding
tickets with Parking and
Traffic Services. I'm
guessing that was the
reason my schedule was
dropped.

unlikely that any student
with outstanding tickets
could enroll for classes.
Nancy Roberson said,
"When you have four or
more citations or a total of
$50 or more you're
automatically tagged

n t-i�
McManus had $150
worth of unpaid parking
citations from last semester,
the last of which was issued
on Dec. 14, according to
Roberson.
Student Attorney
General Haden Jennings
said, "seeing as how he's
been out of town for
legitimate reasons and
thought he was enrolled
he was given until 5 p.m.
Wednesday to enroll.
"If he's not enrolled by 5
p.m. (Wednesday) then
action will immediately be
taken for his position to be
vacated Jennings said.
Jennings added that
even if McManus enrolled
by 5 p.m he may still have
to face a review board to
answer questions
surrounding his explanation
for his delayed enrollment.
Jennings may also
have to offer an
interpretation of the SGA
constitution which states-
the vice president must be
enrolled as a full-time
student, but makes no
comment on whether they
can enroll late in the
semester.
McManus said that at
the beginning of the
semester, before he left for
Arizona, he attended
classes, but declined to offer
names of his professors.
After a meeting with
McManus Wednesday
afternoon, Paul Tschetter,
associate dean of the
Graduate School, agreed to
enroll McManus after he
removed tags from his
record. Among the three
tags on McManus' record
were the outstanding
parking citations.
"I will enroll him if he
removes his tags Tschetter
said. "I've got his form and
his adviser has approved him
registering
Tschetter said he
understood that McManus'
schedule was canceled for
some reason. He added it
was not unheard of for a
graduate student whose
schedule is canceled to
enroll late in the semester.
Late Wednesday
afternoon, McManus said he
Student reports sexual assault

An ECU student reported being
sexually assaulted at the Sigma Phi
Epsilon fraternity house closely
after midnight Saturday.
The 21-year-old woman, a
member of Alpha Xi Delta sorority,
told Grcenviile Police she
remembers two men waking her up
at around 1:50 a.m. and telling her
to put on her pantyhose and leave.
At 4:02 a.m. she reported the
incident to the Greenville police.
Detective John Curry of the
Greenville PD, the investigating
officer, said there is little

assault that can be made public at

Curry added that more
information will be available in the
coming week as the investigation
progresses. Involved parties have
been contacted, and a sexual assault
kit (to obtain physical evidence of
an assault from the alleged victim)
has been taken, but results are not
yet known.
"I have talked to the people
involved, first you have find out if
the incident has occurred. It was
only on Saturday so I don't know
the answers to many questions yet
Curry said.
Dean of Students Ron Speier
said there is little the university can
do at this point in order to avoid
interfering with the criminal
investigation.
"The only thing that is
happening right now is both
organizations have been instructed
to inform their national level of the
incidentwe are working with the
young lady to help her get the
help� emotional and physical�
that she needs Speier said.
"If people arc held accountable
for anything, that is a penalty for the
organization, " Speier said, stating
that there may be fines and other
penalties for anyone involved.

These tasks include changes in
lighting, more group

5positions filled,
appropriations
postponed, at
SGA meeting
AMBER TATL'M
STAFF WRITER
The vice presidency of the Student
Government Association is not the
only position that has been under
scrutiny. At Monday's meeting, five
members were found ineligible to
continue holding their positions.
During the meeting it was
announced that the freshman class
president had accumulated enough
hours to be a sophomore, thus
making him ineligible to retain the
position.
Three other members did not
earn the required 2.0 grade point
average and one member is no
longer classified as a full-time
student.
Several vacant positions in SGA
were recently filled. Filling the
freshman class president vacancy is
David Bucci; the senior class
secretary treasurer post was filled
by Mark Thigpen and the senior
class vice president is Melissa
Hajmahalis; graduate class
president is Eric Rivenbark, and
day representatives are Dcrik
Stone and Cliff Webster.
The position of SGA vice
president is in question regarding
concerns about enrollment (see
side story).
SGA President Scott.Forbes said
any questions surrounding the
position of the Vice President
would be referred to the Student
Attorney General, Haden Jennings.
"I'm not sure how it's to be
maintained since the constitution
is ambiguous Forbes said.
"Jennings, will determine (the
outcome)
Applications for the position of
elections chair are also being
accepted. This position gets a
salary, and a member of the SGA
cannot apply unless heshe resigns
from the legislature and then
applies.
Applications are to be turned in
by Feb. 13 in Room 255 of
Mendenhall Student Center by 5
p.m. The executive branch of the
SGA will decide who to appoint.
The appropriations committee
did not meet Monday. No monies
have been appropriated since the
last biannual funds were
appropriated in Nov. 1997.
Sarah Burgess, chairperson of
the Homecoming Committed,
opened the floor for suggestions for
Homecoming 1998. Tne
committee will meet once a week
starting after spring break.
Flooded parking lots

The commuter lot on College Hill was evacuated and closed Wednesday after rains caused flooding. Rain is expected through today.

Wednesday's wet weather left
students students wading across
campus to their classes.
Cars fared no better when the
College Hill lot was closed
Monday night because of
excessive rain and flooding, also
the lower part of the Minges lot
flooded.
Despite the university footing
the bill for towing cars that had to
be relocated and some students
getting out of class to move their
cars, the flood will most likely
continue to inconvenience
everyone who uses the commuter
lots at least through today.
On Wednesday students were
allowed to park in faculty spaces
behind Mendenhall to alleviate
some of the overflow vehicles.
This may be the case today if the
rain continues as the lower three
rows of the Minges lot will
remained closed until the water
subsides. However, Pat Gertz,
administrative officer for Parking
and Traffic Services, said it's a
safer bet to park in some of the
other available parking areas.

Governors Highway Safety
Program awards fwe Alco-
Sensors
holly Harris
SENIOR WRITER
Officers at the ECU Police Department have a
new weapon in the battle to end drunk driving
around campus.
The Governor's Highway Safety Program
(GHSP) has awarded a grant providing the
university police with five new Alco-Sensors,
portable preliminary breath testing devices that
allow officers to measure if the blood alcohol
content (BAC) is high enough to warrant arrest.
"They're a good tool for officers on the
street to tell if the person they've stopped is
trulv impaired said Captain Johnnie Umphlet
oftheECUPD.
The GHSP awarded the devices to other
police departments on both local and
University levels around the state.
"We want to give law enforcement officers
another tool they can use we hope they will
use them to really get serious about drunk
driving said Frank Smith of the GHSP
A person suspected of driving drunk blows
into the hand held device, and if the reading is
above .08 BAC for a person 21 or over (the
official North Carolina Limit), or registers at all
for an underage drinker, that person is subject
to arrest. Because the machine is only a
preliminary indicator, it is not admissible in
court, so the suspect is then taken to the
magistrates office to obtain an official breath
analysis reading. The machine works by
sucking in the breath the suspect blows when
the officer depresses a button. In five to 10
seconds a reading appears.
The ECU police department only has
jurisdiction to stop suspected drunk drivers on
the campus, properties owned by ECU or
roadways adjacent to land controlled by ECU.
This means an officer can pull a suspect on the
portion of tenth street that runs along ECU
property, but has no official powers beyond
those areas; for instance the sections of road
just past the Music complex. If an officer
observes someone driving while impaired in
those areas he or she has to call the Greenville
police, but Umphlet says ECU officers will be
on the lookout.
With the new addition to their own two
Alco-Sensors, ECU officers will be patrolling
with seven of these devices. If one of them
stops you and you are proven to be driving
impaired you can lose your license on the spot
as well as face court fines, increased insurance
premiums and jail time. Repeat offenders
might even lose their cars.
Officers as well as officials at the GHSP
want anyone who drinks and gets behind the
wheel of a car to know there will be
consequences. Even someone who has not yet
reached the limit of .08 BAC, but whom the
officer deems has a rising blood alcohol content
can be arrested.
"If a reading on an Alco-Sensor shows a .07
BAC or lower the officer determines through
other means such as observation and the
persons statement of alcohol consumed then
the person may be subject to arrest based upon
additional sobriety tests Umphlet said.
What that means, is that if you register
below the legal limit, but appear to be
inebriated, or if you have drunk enough alcohol
that your system has not fully responded yet,
(but is most likely going to) an officer can arrest
you.
All in all the ECU police department and
the GHSP are trying to make it very difficult to
drive drunk and not get caught. Umphlet says
it's all a matter of safety.
"Our main objective is to make sure we
provide good police coverage to the campus of
ECU Umphlet said.
State house campaign gets underway

Those running for a seat in the
North Carolina State House began
filing for May's primary and the
final election on Nov. 3.
Five candidates are running for
the two district seas in this area,
hoping they will be the one chosen
to change the way eastern Carolina
is represented in state affairs.
Democratic candidates Jeff
Savage and Edith Warren are vying
for the eighth district position.
Incumbent Linwood Mercer has
elected not to pursue reelection to
run instead for the first district

of Belk Hall and on College Hill
Gertz said.
Gertz also suggests looking for
a spot in the small lot on East
Ninth Street and on Reade Street.
Commuter Busses will be sent
regularly to the larger lots. For
now the commuter busses have
been rerouted to Greenville
Boulevard and Elm Street and
back to campus by Tenth Street to
avoid flooded roadways.
Until the weather allows for
accessible lots, students who need
to use the commuter lots should
check university news sources as
well as local television stations for
updates concerning the parking
situation.
"Students can listen to AM

for the seat.
"There are going to be several
things I am working toward
respectable use of tax dollars,
continuing to develop the
economic opportunities for good
jobs for the people in our area, and
the development of a better
infrastructure Warren said.
Warren also promises to be a
proponent of education and the
environment.
"If we don't keep our
environment in good condition it
will not be there for the future
Warren said.
Jeff Savage, Warren's opponent
for the eighth district position, is
also a county commissioner and
says he promises to address issues
that others may shy away from.
"I have demonstrated that I am
a voice of the people, and one that
is not quick to adhere to the status
quo � I'm not afraid to challenge
the issues and I'm willing to adapt
to a changing environment
Savage said.
Savage maintains that his
platform will rest on the
environment, education and
financial issues that affect the
voters in his district.
"I think we need to move into
the 21st century, development of
health issues, sewer projects and
economic development many of
the issues that used to be dealt
with at the federal level are now
being passed down to the state,
the most important being welfare
reform � one size doesn't fit all,
we will have to tailor our actions to
the eastern district Savage said.
Candidates for the ninth
district have three choices for their
house representative, including
the Republican incumbent Henry

for comment. Aldridge is a
controversial figure for his
comments on race and rape.

The East Carolinian
History prof Long publishes
artcile in leading journal
Piece is excerpt from
Pulitzer Prize
nominated book
NINA M. DRY
STAF? WRITER
Dr. David E. Long, ECU history
professor of three years and
Abraham Lincoln expert, wrote an
article featured in this fall's
leading journal, The Lincoln
Herald.
Dr. Long's article entitled "I
S�y Mfc Can Control That
Election: Confederate Policy
Toward the 1864 Presidential
Elections speaks of Lincoln's
trials and tribulations during his
reelection in 1864 while the Civil
Vfa was taking place.
"It focuses on the fact that
even though the southern states
weren't going to be in the election,
they would do everything they
could to influence its outcome and
defeat Lincoln Long said.
"During the Civil Vfu, Lincoln
a towering figure, Long said.
"He was to the rest of the country
what Robert E. Lee was to the
south
Long's piece is actually an
excerpt from his Pulitzer prize
nominated book Jewel of Liberty:
Abraham's Reelection and the End
of Slavery. The article was revised
for The Lincoln Herald, a leading
journal that reports on the life and
events of our 16th president and is
published by Lincoln Memorial
University in Harrogate,
Tennessee. The Lincoln Herald is
quite familiar with the ECU
professor's work.
"I've known the The Lincoln
Herald for years Long said. "I've
published articles with them five
times before this
In addition to the article, Long
recently spoke at the second
annual symposium of the Lincoln
Forum that was held in
Gettysburg, Pa. Long, who is one
of the founding members of the
Lincoln Forum, talked about the
Emancipation Proclamation and
what it meant in relation to the
Civil War. The events were
televised Jan. 2 on C-SPAN.
In the months to come, Long
will be involved in new projects.
His- endeavors will include the
following:
On Feb. 12, Long will address
the annual meeting of the
Lincoln's Group of New York and
the New York Civil War
Round table on the topic of
Lincoln's nomination in 1860 and
the inevitability of the Civil War.
"This is an important date for
Lincoln people because it's
Lincoln's birthday Long said. "All
over the country groups meet on
February 12 and have their annual
meeting to celebrate Lincoln's
life
Prior to his New York meeting,
Long will give the same speech at
ECU on Feb. 10 at 4 p.m. in
Brewster B 202.
On March 28, Long will speak
at the Library of Congress as a part
of the symposium of the Lincoln
Institute of the Mid-Atlantic; on
Aug. 3, Long will be in attendance
at the Fifth Annual Symposium at
Ford's Theatre National Historic
Site discussing the assassination of
Lincoln and whether or not the
Confederate states were involved.
Finally, this summer Long will
release his second book, Lincoln
and Liberty, which discusses
Lincoln's first election in 1860.
The date of the book's release is
pending.
Lowe temporarily fills vacant
School of Education dean
post during candidate search
New dean remains dean of School of
Social Work
Nicole Murchison
STAFF WRITER
The beginning of February marks the time when the
School of Education will temporarily fill its vacant
deanship with Gary Lowe, dean of social work.
"I'm just starting Lowe said. "I'm playing it dav
by day
Along with his new duties as interim education
dean, Lowe will remain Dean of the School of Social
Work. Lowe is not yet sure of how difficult handling
both positions will be since he has just started.
Lowe will be replacing former interim dean
Emmett Floyd. Floyd served as interim Dean for the
School of Education until announcing his retirement
from university administrative positions so he will be
free to run for a seat in the House Of Representatives.
The seat has been vacant since 19 when former
School Of Education Dean Charles Coble joined the
University of North Carolina General Administration.
Coble was recently promoted to fill a new UNC vice
presidency for university-school programs. Henry Peel
also held the interim position but is now associate
chancellor for academic affairs at ECU.
"The fact that Gary Lowe holds a Ph.D in

education, specifically in the social foundations of
education helped to make him an ideal choice said
Richard Ringeisen, vice president of academic affairs.
"Further, Dr. Lowe has had many contacts with deans
and faculty of the school over the years. I have every
confidence that he will serve the School Education,
the School of Social Work
A search is now in progress to find a full-time dean.
Lowe said his goal is to try to be responsive to the
needs of the School of Education.
Acuity member Snow honored at reception for textbook
Elizabeth rack
STAFF WRITER
Dr. Charles Snow, a faculty
member of the department of
child development and family
relations was honored at a
reception on campus for the
publication of a revised textbook
he authored.
Snow signed copies of his
textbook Infant Development,
published by Prentice-Hall, in the
Van Landingham Room of the
Rivers Building. The reception
was given by the School of Human
Environmental Sciences and by
student chapters of the
Association for the Care of
Children's Health(ACCH), for
which Dr. Snow is the adviser, and
the Association for the Education
of Young Children(AEYC).
Snow, a specialist in child
development and design of day
care for young children, has been
at ECU since 1976.
"I was a little embarrassed
Snow said. "I don't do well in the
limelight. But it was very special
because it was sponsored by
students and a number of faculty
and students came. It was terrific
to be honored that way
"Dr. Snow is a very sweet, kind
person, and highly regarded by his
peers said Nan Lee, director of
the Child Development Lab and
faculty adviser for the AEYC.
"The AEYC jumped at the
opportunity to honor himl. The
reception was well-attended by
students, faculty and people from
the community. We were very
pleased
According to Snow, mainly
students got books signed at the
reception, but some people
bought them to get autographed as
a gift to family members with
babies. The original publication of
Infant Development came out in
1989, but the field has grown and a
great deal of new research has
come out since then. He spent
three years on the first book, and
the company gave him a year on
the second edition. He said it was
painful to write it the first time,
but, "it's like hitting your hand
with a hammer. You forget the
pain until you do it again. I'm
still in recovery
Snow teaches one of two
sections of a course on infant
development. The textbook is
used in a number of universities
across the country. "Recognition
from colleagues is one of the most
satisfying things Snow said.
Dr. Snow is a very sweet, kind
person, and highly
regarded by his peers. The
AEYC jumped at the
opportunity
to honor him.

Somebody else has accused the President of libidinous sexual misconduct, and as usual, her
face is plastered on ever periodical in the nation. The 1 test issue of Entertainment Weekly
included the headline "Clinton Sex Scandal" on its font cover. Entertainment Weekly? since
when did the political repercussions of the president's alleged misbehavior constitute
entertainment?
Weil, for a while now, if you think about it. Jokes about Bill's John Thomas and what he does
with it abound on television. Everybody from Jay Leno to VH1 has taken the opportunity to
take another jab at whar is already the dead horse of the Lewinsky accusations. The
American people eat this stuff up; no one can know for sure, but most polls indicate that the
president's approval ratings are the highest they've been, ever in the history of his
administration.
So perhaps this sort of thing is entertainment. If it is, then are respectable newspapers and
magazines acting with journalistic integrity when they focus entire issues on this thing?
Regardless of how many papers it sells, does the biography of Lewinsky really constitute
news? Is the national media trying to move in on Jerry Springer's market? Has the old
watchdog of society gotten fat and lazy? What would happen if, the next time some Little
Miss Opportunity raised her voice against our nation's chief executive, all the respectable
publications just said no to smut?
Well, for one, Chelsea might be happier. Let's think about Chelsea for a minute. Here's a
college freshman, hoping to succeed in life, make friends, find a date to the sorority function,
spend a night on the town or just have cup of coffee at her favorite coffee spot. Imagine, if
you will, the First College Student sipping on a latte, counting the number of people in the
shop turning to the big feature on the sex scandal in the "news" section of USA Today. How
Ottid you feel if you woke to the morning news doing an exclusive on how your dad slept
ith his intern? What would it feel like to have every editorial columnist in the country
using of the imminent divorce of your parents or the closet homosexuality of your mother?
edom of the press is supposed to be a right granted to the people to protect them from
primate evils of society and the government. It was not meant to pander to the lowbrow
lust for a "juicy bit The groundlings may have, collectively, a lot of cash t� be spent on
bloids, but is it really worth a betrayal of the public trust for those dollars? If we in the
respectable" news media abuse our freedom, then we run the risk of jeopardizing our
essed position as protectors of the truth.
OPINION
Microsoft: monopolistic devil
With all this trouble with
Microsoft ECU still
makes a deal with the
proverbial deviltrust
Microsoft about as much as
you would trust President
Clinton with your 21-year old
intern daughter.
Three people are on board a stalled
win; a mechanic, a chemist and a
Microsoft technician. The three get
into an argument about why the
train is not moving The mechanic
insists the train's problem is related
10 a malfunction in the engine and
tuggest looking at the engine to fix
the train. The chemist argues for
looking at the fuel mixture to get
the train moving. The Microsoft
technician insists upon closing all
windows, exiting the train, getting
t�ck on the train and trying to start
it again.
1 can count on one hand the
number of times a Macintosh
computer has locked up on me.
Only with scientific notation can I
figure out how many times my IBM,
run by Windozc and DOS has
locked up, shut down and refused to
do a damned thing Most experts
believe 90 percent of the world's
home computers are run by a
Microsoft program, whether it be
Windozc or DOS. Microsoft also
controls about the same percentage
of programs for word processing,
spreadsheets and everything in the
Microsoft package that comes with
most computers.
Can we say monopolv? I knew
you could. If AT&T had 90 percent
of the long distance and local
telephone service, they would have
been broken up, again. Unless they
were a cable company.
An interesting note about the
Microsoft packages that come with
computers: Most advertisements
list these programs in such a manner
as to suggest they are free. Not so,
Microsoft actually charges a
licensing fee to the computer
manufacturers. You do pay for the
programs that come with your
computer.
The Department of Justice is
looking into Microsoft to see if they
are following monopolistic
tendencies. Good call. Janet Reno
could not find the haystack, much
less the needle.
What constitutes monopolistic in
the Department of Justice? What
would happen if Waimart were to
drop prices on prescription drugs in
an effort to run small-time
pharmacies out of business? Well,
last time it happened they were
sued by the small ma and pa
organizations; Waimart lost. Now
what if Waimart were giving away
having a prescription filled, much in
the same way Microsoft is giving
away the Internet ExplorcrTHory
Monopolies, Batman.
Few companies are left to
challenge the Goliath. Apple has
taken more beatings than Peter
McNcely. Netscape is surviving
about as well as can be expected.
Sun Microsystems is the one last
hope for those of us who realize that
Microsoft programming is
substandard.
Today programmers have to write
language for both types of operating
systems, IBM and Mac. Tomorrow
may change all that. Sun
Microsystems released a
programming language for personal
computers. The language, Java,
works on both Mac's and IBM's
systems, as Sun says, "Write Once
Run Anywhere With Java,
Microsoft could face serious
competition.
With possible real competition,
Bill Gates docs what any good
computer geek does. Bill adds
features to the Java programing so
that it will only work on Microsoft
operating systems. If programmers
use these features, Mac lovers are
given the shaft again.
With all this trouble with
Microsoft ECU still makes a deal
with the proverbial devil.
Computing and Information
Systems (CIS) could have asked me
about the Microsoft Exchange
program. I would have told them

Struggling for
African-Americans need more
than a black history month in
February, the shortest and
coldest month of the year.
While we must never forget
the dehumanizing effects of
slavery, it is important that
we make Dr. King's
dream a reality.
Many college students arc ignorant
of persistent struggles by
persevering blacks to overcome and
circumvent racial injustices.
Valiantly, blacks challenged an old
despicable, cruel system notoriously
named slavery. Slavery, an
abominable, harsh system of human
bondage and oppression, was an
institution which lasted nearly 300
years in America. Slaves toiled from
sunrise to sunset for masters
(mostly Southern) who depended
on slave labor to promote their
economic interests. By the way,
most slaves were employed in
cotton fields. Nevertheless, slaves
were considered property and
hence, less than human beings.
Amid such horrors, many slaves used
resistance to challenge servitude
and the intertwined atrocities.
Rebellion or revolt was one form of
resistance. People who master-
minded rebellions often met death
through execution. Flight was
popular among slaves. Fugitives
were often caught and tortured by
their masters.
Gabriel Prosscr led the first slave
revolt in the South in 1800. This
insurrection, occurring near
Richmond, Virginia, consisted of
1,000 slaves armed with bayonets,
scythes, pikes, and guns. The
slaves, who met about six miles
outside of Richmond, had planned
to capture the city and occupy it
until the stated legislature
guaranteed that slavery would be
outlawed. To the insurrectionists'
surprise, the escape plot was
betrayed to authorities by another
slave. Thus, James Monroe, then
Virginia's governor, dispatched the
militia to meet the slaves. Without
battle, Prosscr and his team were
arrested and executed.
The least-known but largest
slave revolt in American history
occurred in St. John-the-Baptist
Parish, Louisiana, just outside New
Orleans in 1811. The revolt
involved about 500 slaves who had
been brought to Louisiana by their
French colonial masters who were
refugees themselves from the
Haitian slave revolt. These slaves,
after arriving in North America,
escaped, armed themselves, and
marched on New Orleans with
drums beating and flags flying.
Nevertheless, the local militia
triumphed.
In 182 in Charleston, SC,
Denmark Vcscy, a slave who had
purchased his own freedom,
organized a plot to seize the city,
kidnap government officials, and
ransom the city in exchange for an
end to slavery. After a slave
disclosed the plot to whites on the
eve of the revolt, South Carolina
authorities apprehended 131 slaves
and hanged 37, including Vcscy.
In 1831 in Southampton,
Virginia, the best known slave revolt
in US history occurred. Nat Turner,
who revolted with other slaves and
killed his master and the master's
family, led the revolt. From
plantation to plantation, slaves
murdered their owners and
liberated each other. Turner's
uprising caused the deaths of nearly
60 whites. Eventually, federal and
state troopers crushed the rebellion
and executed Turner.
Flight was a last resort when all
else failed. Each year, between 200
and 300 slaves escaped. In all, over
60,000 slaves escaped to free
territory. They journeyed north via
one of two routes - through c
Maryland into Delaware an
Pennsylvania or through western
Maryland and across the Mason-
Dixon Line- the border between
Pennsylvania, a free state, and
Maryland, a slaveholding state- into
central Pennsylvania. Additionally,
the majority of slaves ended their
flight in Canada where England,
Canada's mother country at the
time, outlawed slavery around 1838.
Harriett Tubman was influential
in helping droves of slaves escape to
the North. Often referred to as
"Moses Tubman, who escaped
from slavery in 1849, never lost a
slave. In fact, she had led more of
her brethren out of "Egypt" than
any other persorfc in American
history.
Slavery has divided the country
for so long. This institution, where
blacks were regarded as property
and hires as masters, was the
fundamental issue which led to the
War of Secession. Slave rebellions
were conducted by a people who
wanted to break the shackles of
oppression and subjugation,
revolts were not effective, mil
offered hope for slaves, hungry for
freedom. President Clinton is
considering apologizing to African-
Americans for slavery and
contemplating the possibilities of
future reparations. African-
Americans need more than a black
history month in February, the
shortest and coldest month of the
year. While we must never forget
the dehumanizing effects of slavery,
it is important that we make Dr.
King's dream a reality.

Use surplus to improve education
The budget surplus should be
utilized to upgrade the human
capital of America �
through educationAn
educated public will breed less
crime, less welfare recipients,
thus a decrease in the cost of
law enforcement and social
programs.
For all who haven't heard the
exciting economic news: very soon,
we finally have a national budget
surplus! Consequently, though not
surprisingly, there is also a plethora
of very strong opinions on what this
surplus should be used for. The
main ideas are cutting taxes and
salvaging the crumbling social
security system. Both proposals
have merit to some degree, but I
believe we should do something
different. The budget surplus
should be utilized to upgrade the
human capital of America �
through education.
Why shouldn't we cut taxes?
Normally I am all for tax cuts
because a tax cut for the rich most
definitely equates to more
prosperity for the poor in the form of
jobs, products, etc but the
amount that would be cut in this
case would not stimulate the
economy significantly enough to
justify the reduction.
Why shouldn't wc allot the
surplus toward the decaying social
security system? Basically, our poor
pittance of a surplus isn't going to
rectify an atrocity like the present
situation with social security. The
reforms need to be structural � not
a monetary payback. That would be
like pouring oil in my car every once
in awhile, but never getting an oil
and filter change (which I do
actually). Paying off social security;
like indiscriminately pouring oil in
my car are both only temporary
solutions which will both inevitably
blow up in our faces.
So, why should wc put the
surplus toward education?
America's problems are tied to
illiteracy and lack of job skills. In our
post-industrial technological society,
the lack of skilled workers is a
limiting factor for economic growth.
This limiting factor stifles other
facets of our society like quality of
life, etc Once the lower and
middle class people are sufficiently
trained, there will be vast domino
effects that will benefit our society
as a whole. An educated public will
breed less crime, less welfare
recipients, thus a decrease in the
cost of law enforcement and social
programs. In the long run, once our
governmental costs arc reduced, wc
can have a tax cut that actually
means something. This reform in
education can't be a shotgun
approach or giveaway scheme as
past attempts have been. For once,
it needs to be well structured and
multi-faceted. The reform needs to
include increases in teachers'
salaries, extensive and accessible
training programs and perhaps tax
incentives (not welfare incentives)
for individuals and corporations that
participate in such programs. I don't
have all the solutions: I'm definitely
not an economist or politician.
A rejuvenation of education will
have immeasurable benefits, but
the benefits will not materialize
right off the bat. It's hard for
politicians to formulate a financial
plan that doesn't have immediate
positive results (This is why Bush
wasn't reelected). America needs to
learn to see past the ends of their
noses and vote for politicians who
can do the same. When America is
educated properly, this country will
be much more tolerable for all of us.

Enthusiasm about the achievements of African-Americans and the demand for
recognition has been steadily increasing during the past decade, with the result
that what was once Negro History Week (first observed in the 1920s) has been
expanded to Black History Month.
No matter how you choose to celebrate Black History Month, there is sure to
be a university-sponsored activity that will both entertain and educate you.
The Lcdona S. Wight Cultural Center will contribute a black student
leadership roundtable discussion and a brother-to-brother rap session, both in
Bloxton House on West Campus, during this month to encourage African-
American students to take control of their destinies and to become more involved
on campus.
According to English lecturer Reginald Watson, contributions to modem
society by African-Americans run the gamut from the stop light, the light bulb
filament, the fire escape ladder, the typewriter, the fountain
pen, the lawn mower and the wall tight switch to the
barbershop chair and blood plasma storage, which saved
countless lives during WWII.
"When we look at Black History Month, we should take a
close look at what we're celebrating. It's not just a black
thing; it's a human thing he says. "The importancc.is to
educate everybody aboutthese achievements
Watson is the founder of Thespians for Diversity, a group of
students who write and perform their own plays about the
importance of such values as equality, hard work and
acceptance of others in a world where cooperation and good
race relations are becoming increasingly important.
His play, "I Have Seen the Mountain Top, But it Don't Look
So Good is slated for performance on February 9. In this
play, Martin Luther King, jr. is resurrected to discover that his dream of harmony
between all races is still unfulfilled.
Witson hopes that students will be encouraged to take responsibility for their
education about black history.
"It should go on beyond February. We should try to learn about each other
throughout the entire year
The Thespians are working on another play entitled "Black Voices from the
Past which Watson hopes will be performed later in February.
Good information about the contributions of blacks to civilization can be found
in such books as A Turbulent Voyagt, by Floyd Patterson; The Black Athena, by Martin

Not to say that Vedder and crew

You ever been to one of those
small town shindigs, way back in the
woods where they have a pig on the
grill, plenty of beer, a big tub of red
funny juice (causing drunks to run
around with red stains around their
mouths like trailer-trash kids at the
Winn-Dixie) and some band called
Southern-something-other playing
"Sweet Home Alabama" like they
were revolutionary? The Brewery in
Raleigh had a similar get-together
this past weekend by the name of
S.RI.T.T.L.E. (Southern Plunge
Into Trailer Trash Leisure &
Entertainment) Fest.
There were a few important
changes, however. There was no pig
on a grill. Instead, the festival
featured coleslaw, beans and
chopped BBQ, with no hot sauce,
mind you (punishable by
excommunication to Rhode Island
in some parts of North Carolina).
Also, there was no red funny juice,
due to The Brewery being beer-only,
but they had plenty of what they
had only Most importantly, the two-
day festival, MCed by local wrestler,
Col. DeBeers (with fanny pack and
big cigar) featured plenty of damn
fine music, free of any Molly
Hatchet cover bands.
Friday night featured the likes of
"Raleigh legends" and the self-
proclaimed "best looking band at
S.P.I.T.T.L.E" The Accelerators,
Trailer Bride, Blue Mountain, Two
Dollar Pistols, R.B. Morris and The
Hiccups, who served as the in-
between set house band Saturday
night.
The Accelerators, who've been
around since the early '80s,
proclaimed their current line-up to
be their best ever and set out to
prove it. They cranked out their
version of N.R.B.Q. bar-band rock
with tunes like "Ooh-Wee" and
"Leave My Heart Alone Their
inspired efforts had the crowd
bopping and dandng like they were'
at a '50s sock-hop.
R.B. Morris delivered a quieter,
more introspective set. The
Knoxvilie based singerwelder is
signed to John Prine's Oh Boy label.
Sadly, his sad songs didn't go over
too well with the crowd, who largely
ignored the talented singer.
"I guess I'm the lead singer, but
I'm just a housewife, really. Trailer
Bride's Melissa Swingle offered
while introducing the band to the
audience. Swingle's talents go much
farther than cooking Beanie
Weenies and scrubbing Johns,
however. She is an equally adept
songwriter and guitar player.
Swingle's deep twang may be too
much for some, but it is appropriate
for the bluesy country Trailer Bride
performs. PJ Harvey might would
sound like Swingle if she was from
Carolina Trailer Bride was also the
only band at the festival to use a saw
as an instrument, a definite plus.
Writer Larry Brown's favorite
band and Oxford, Mississippi's

performed a high-energy set that
was the best-received of the
evening.
Blue Mountain celebrated the

For art student Chris Knot ts, it's not
just about losing a little elbow room.
Knotts, like many of the students in
the Communication An program
here at ECU is upset due to a loss of
studio space.
"I feel very cheated Knotts said
in an interview.
Once an an student is accepted
into the program heshe chooses to
concentrate in, that student is
allotted studio space. This space
includes work and storage areas.
Until recently, the students in the
CA program occupied two large
rooms on the bottom floor of the
Jenkins An building. Over
Christmas break however, the CA
faculty decided to move the
students into a much smaller room.
Naturally, the students didn't
receive the news with much
enthusiasm. "Everybody that has
studio space worked hard to get
accepted into the program Knotts
said.
The issue is more complicated
than that however, according to
Craig Malmrose, director of the CA
program. When Malmrose came on
as faculty in 1985, the studio space
allotted to the CA students was
one of the large rooms. "The
adjoining room is not and has never
been studio space. Recently some
students have set up their studios in
designated as studio space
Knotts saw this as an excuse.
"You can say that he said, "but that
doesn't change the fact that five
students had their space in there
Originally, 30 students occupied
the space that, in Fall '97, 16
students occupied. With the advent
of computers as a design toot; the
number of students that used the
space declined.
"With that extra space, students
started to move in overstuffed
furniture, ceramics projects, sJff
that shouldn't be there Malmnfc
said. "When I bring in prospective
freshmen, I'm completely
embarrassed by the state of the
room
"It's an an studio. Artists work
there; of course it's going to be
messy Knotts said.
Aside from that issue, the CA
department is hosting a large
photography symposium in the fall.
The former studio space is joined to
the darkrooms. "The faculty who
teach photography requested that
those double rooms be cleaned up
Malmrose said.
"Given ail these factors, all nine
CA faculty came to a unanimous
decision
The studio was officially moved,
and since then, Malmrose said he's
only seen two to three students
occupying the new space.

Okay you pencil-necks, listen up! The
subject is professional wrestling! The
objective is pain! Never-ending,
agonizing pain! Your pain, if you don't
get with the program and learn to
appreciate wrestling's sweaty embrace!
That's right, baby, WCW Monday Nitro is
the highest-rated show on cable
television! Give in to its power! Join the
hordes of wrestling's devoted fans or
face the fury of the Figure-Four
Leglock!
Ooo, I think I burst a vessel. How
does the Macho Man do that all the
time? Whew! A any rate, it's all true.
Professional wrestling's popularity is at
an all-time high, with the sport's two
biggest organizations duking it out for
ratings on Monday nights. On one side
of the grappling fence we have the
aforementioned WCW Monday Nitro,
owned by Ted Turner (known in
wrestling circles as Billionaire Ted). On
the other side is WWF Rate, put on by
long-time wrestling promoter Vmce
McMahon.
To the untrained eye, the two shows
would seem to be very similar. It's the
same old male soap opera they've been
putting on for years, with hate instead
of love, violence replacing sex. Wrestlers
still get neck-breaking mad at each
other for the most simplistic of reasons,
and the rules arc still more of a
suggestion than absolute law. But
beyond those basics, the differences
between Nitro and Ran- run deep.
Nitro, the show in the top spot, can
thank its stars for its success. The
flagship of World Championship
Wrestling (WCW), Nitro boasts the
talents of such performers as Nature
Boy Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Macho Man
Randy Savage and Rowdy Roddy Piper.
With household names like these.in
their roster, bolstered by big names in
wrestling fandom like Lex Luger, Sting
and Bret Hart, WCW pulls in viewers
like mad. Unfortunately, most of these
guys are actually kind of boring. -
Veterans of the wrestle wars, the bjg
names have settled into comfortable
schticks, and they rarely deviate from
them.
It was fine for Hulk Hogan to be a
moderately charismatic muscle man 20
years ago, when most wrestlers were
just big doughy guys who ate too mucn
beef. But now that every bruiser wh�
comes down the pike has a sculpted
physique, Hogan is a waste. Piper isn'r.

just seem to flounder. Ric Flair still
talks the best game in the sport and
never fails to get a laugh from the
audience (and often his opponents).
But he's lost a step in the ring, and
his classic face-plants lack the
precise comic timing of his youth.
So the real attraction of Nitro to a
true wrestling fan lies in the under-
carders, the guys who haven't gotten
complacent, and who still put on a
good show. The best of these lower-
echelon people is Rev Mysterio, Jr, a
masked wrestler from Mexico who
seems to defy gravity in the ring.
Mysterio, blessed with the best fake
wrestling name since Chief Wahoo
McDaniel, launches himself from
the top rope and onto opponents'
heads with such abandon that you
can't help but be impressed. Also
(but still no hot sauce, by God): The
Derailers, The Steam Donkeys,
Cigar Store Indians, Big Joe, Chip
Robinson and The Bottle Rockets.
The Steam Donkeys, who arrived
in style at the festival, driving a
church van, were one of the few
non-Southern bands on the bill. In
fact, Col. DeBeers had to get on the
New York boys for calling the fiddle
a violin. "When you're down here,
you call it a fiddle, "DeBeers said,
chomping his ci-gar for emphasis.
The Donkeys had the twang
thang, however. The "violin" player
was even a quite impressive yodeler,
taking over lead vocals for a cover of
"Mr. Sandman
Saturday night Chip Robinson
had no friends, at least not on stage.
His set, billed as Chip Robinson and
Friends, turned out to be a solo
performance. However, The
Backsliders fronrman did well on his
own, mixing Backsliders tunes with
a few covers, including a convincing
cover of Dylan's "Tangled Up and
impressive are Diamond Dallas
Page, Chris Benoit, Dean Malenko,
Eddie Guerrero and the Ultimo
Dragon. Unfortunately, most of
them don't work the mic very well.
Often the best part of a wrestling
show, good mic work is essential.
But maybe these guys don't need to
talk. Their ring personas give them
all the entertainment value they
need. ,
That's not quite the case with
the performers on Rate. The World
Wrestling Federation (WWF) relies
increasingly these days on bizarre
gimmicks and weird angles. Thus,
the Undertaker, a walking dead man
and Kane, the Undertaker's evil
brother, who is apparently
indestructible.
Even the "normal" wrestlers on
Raw have bizarre or extreme
gimmicks, however. The biggest
name in WWF, Stone Cold Steve
Austin, runs around beating up
everybody, regardless of their good
Blue
Like Blue Mountain did the
night before. Crab Apple, Georgia's
Cigar Store Indians took the title of
crowd favorite for their night to
perform at S.P.I.TTL.E.
Charismatic frontman Ben
Friedman shot the stuff with the
audience with topics ranging from
braless women to female minors, in
between delivering dance-happy
rockabilly numbers like "Hot Rod
Concerto" and "Jailbait
The crowd, in fact, took to the
Indians so much, they didn' t want
them to leave the stage. The
Georgia boys obliged with no less
than five encores.
Well, after the frantic and sweaty
(sweaty for January, damnit) set by
the Cigar Store Indians, The
Derailers and The Bottle Rockets
had a tough act to follow. The
Derailers, from Austin, didn't seem
like the same band that Buck
Owens invited to perform at his
birthday bash in Bakersfield. Their
guy or bad guy status, and says the
word "ass" a lot. The Truth
Commission is lead by a strange
figure called the Jackal, who's a cross

David Kouresh. Then there's WWF
Champ Shawn Michaels, whose in-
character jokes about how
everything is fake have led to an all-
but-open admission by ahe WWF
that Rase is theatre, not sports.
With this admission out, the plot
lines have recently taken even more
bizarre turns. Insane freak show
wrestler Mankind reveals that his
real name is Mick Foley but then
develops a multiple personality
disorder and wresrles as three
different people (Mankind, Dude
' Love, and Cactus Jack). Kane locks
the Undertaker in a giant casket and
sets it on fire in the first case of
attempted murder I've e'er seen in
wrestling. Oddly, security and police
officials on hand do nothing as he
stands there and gloats.
set was certainly less enthusiastic
and the crowd responde I likewise.
The Bottle Rockets were the last
show of the festival. While they
didn't seem quite as apprehensive as
The Derailers, they didn't come off
quite as rowdy as their reputation
would have you believe and hope for.
The Rockets did perform their loud
guitar getdowns like "Gravity Fails"
and "Radar Gun but seemed to be
saving something for another night
down the road. Maybe they'll have a
lot more pep next time they come
around, and let's hope thev sing
"Queen of the World
If you missed S.RI.T.TL.E you
missed a good time and a lot of great
bands. But worry not, some of the
best bands of the festival will be
back in the area within the nexr
month at area clubs or at Local 506
at the club's end of the month
"Honky-Tonk-A-Rama And if they
have BBQ at the rama, they better
have hot sauce.
Yes, all this is a laugh riot. I laugh
harder and longer at Raw than I ever
have at Nitro. The ring action is even
generally better in WWF Though
they don't have the under-card
talent of WCW, their big names
work harder.
So why is it that I like Nitro
better? Well, WWF just doesn't
know when to quit, or every
hilarious angle like the burning
casket, they give us hour-long
chunks of nothing. That's why I
tape Rats and watch most of it in
fast-forward. Granted, that's the
best way to watch both of these
shows, but at least I can sit through
Nitro. WCW tends to play it straight
more, giving the fans more
traditional rivalries and characters
who could actually exist. While
that's not as amusing, it is
ultimately more entertaining.
And that, as they say in the
wrestling game, is the bottom line,
babvdoll. Woo!

8'seniors leave their markon ECU
history as ameers end
Paul Kaplan
SENIOR WRITER
With only the CAA championships remaining in the ECU
swim team schedule, time is quickly running out. Eight
men and women must move away from a sport and a
university that have been an integral part of their lives for
the last four years. These eight swimmers have done more
then left their mark in ECU history, the eight of them
combined can be found on the all-time top ten ECU best
times list well over 20 times.
The five graduating men over their careers at ECU have
contributed to a record of 30 wins and.only 10 losses. The
three graduating women have contributed to a strong four-
year record of 33 wins and just seven losses.
Lee Hutchens, the team captain for his second year and
also one of the top middle distance freestyiers, has been
ranked in the top eight at the conference
championships for the last three years. He is ranked
eighth all-time at ECU in the 200 freestyle, sixth
all-time at ECU in the 500 freestyle and eight all-
time at ECU for the 200 backstroke.
"He has been our best 200 and 500 yard
freestyler over the last few years said Head Coach
Rick Kobe. "He is also a very good leader, he is
ahvays out there cheering or making banners and
flags for a meet
The other co-captain, Branden Tilley,
transferred in from one of the top junior college
swimming programs in Indian River, Fla where he
was a 19 Junior College All-American.
Tilley is ranked number one in the conference
for the 200 breaststroke and holds the ECU 200
brcaststroke varsity record, and he is also second
all-time for the 100 breast- stroke.
"Branden is an excellent 200 I.M.er, he ranked
eighth all-time for ECU at the CAA championships
last year Kobe said.
Patrick Kesler, one of the premier breaststrokers
in the conference, broke the ECU record for the
100 breaststroke last November with a win at the
Nike Cup, one of the most prestigious meets in the
nation. He also holds the second fastest ECU time
in the 200 breaststroke.
"Patrick has been a major force in the CAA ail
four years Kobe said. "He holds freshman records
in the 100 and 200 breaststroke that still
haven't been broken and he is the
number one ranked breaststroker in the
CAA
Jim Broughal is ranked in the ECU
top ten in the 100 freestyle, 100
butterfly and the 200 LM. He is also
ranked number one in the CAA for the
100 butterfly.
"Jim Broughal has been our top ail-
around swimmer all four years Kobe
said. "He is our most versatile swimmer;
our top sprinter and middle distance
freestyler, along with our top sprint
buttcrflycr and F.M.er
Mike Donovan, our final male senior,
is one of ECU's .top distance
swimmers and breaststrokers.
"In his freshman year he was one of
our top distance swimmers; he has
been a real solid contributor for all four
years Kobe said.
The ladies' veteran squad is comprised of tri-captains
Kim Field, Amanda Atkinson and Sandra Ossman.
"Amanda has been one of the premier backstrokers at

extremely hard worker Kobe said.
Atkinson is ranked second all-time in the 100 backstroke
and third all-time in the 200 backstroke. She is also a very
good distance swimmer, holding
ECU top ten spots in the 1000
freestyle and 1650 freestyle.
"Sandra Ossman is our top flyer for
the Lady Pirates and in the CAA in
the 100 and 200 fly along with
being top ranked in the distance
freestyle Kobe said.
Ossman holds the ECU varsity
record in the 100 butterfly. She is
fourth in the 200 Fly and has the
second fastest time in the 1000
freestyle along with being third all
time in the 1650 freestyle.
"Km Field is one of the elite
I.M.ers in the CAA and at ECU;
she probably has more top 10
swims than any other female
swimmer in ECU history. She has
six top ten rankings and is
probably one of the most talented
and versatile of the Lady Pirates
Kobe said.
These" eight swimmers have done
an irreplaceable job for the ECU
swim team over their four years,
and it will be a lone while before
their mark on ECU history is
forgotten.

Baseball team
gears up for
season opener
Instant replay could
make a big difference
for new coach LeCkar
Steve losey
ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR
ECU's baseball team is getting
mentally and physically ready for
their first game at Duke this
Saturday.
"We're trying to be aggressive
and play with enthusiasm said
Head Coach Keith LeClair.
LeClair recently replaced
longtime Pirate Baseball Coach
GaryOverton.
Those who followed last season
will be paying close attention to
the first few games of this spring,
hoping to see whether LeClair s
influence on the team will be a
positive one. After last season
ended with a mediocre 29-27
record, Pirate fans were eager for a
change.
Lately, the weather has been
less than favorable for baseball
conditions, but that has not
stopped the team from taking the
Ulalliuiju.
"We've been able to get a lot of
stuff done, even though it's been a
little wet lately LeClair said.
Injuries have held up the
baseball team's progress in the
past, but as things look now, ihey
shouldn't be much of a problem.
Only two members of the Pirates
are on the disabled list. One is Eric
Angel, a pitcher whose shoulder
injury will keep him off of the
mound for the time being. The
other is Jason Lamberger who
went in for shoulder surgery and
has to fully recuperate before
coming off of the disabled list.
ECU has won the last four out
of five games against the Blue
Devils and controls the two team's
series, 20-11. Last year's game was
a decisive 9-4 victory that saw two
home runs by returning first
baseman Randy Rigsby. Both
Rigsby, who had a .356 batting
average last year, and left fielder
Steve Salargo, whose .374 average
led the team, will return to keep
the Pirates' bats swinging.
LeClair expects the team to do
well thanks to it's well-rounded
nature.
"We're strong offensively, we've
got depth in pitching and we've
got good team speed LeClair
said.
Close calk should be
left to technology to
decide

The crowd goes wild. With a score of 60-63 and less
than five seconds of play left in the game, the
freshman off the bench sends the entire arena into
awe with a three pointer at the buzzer to tic the
game.
The opposing coach rises immediately from his
side of the court in a frenzy.
"No he screams. "He was not behind the line!
He was not behind the line
Now it is up to the officials to decide. One referee
swears up and down that he saw the shot, and he is
sure that it was good for three points. The other
official claims that he also saw the shot, and that it
was good only for two. The question is, who is right?
Believe it or not, situations such as this one occur
each and every day in the world of sports. With the
use of instant replay, officials would have the
opportunity to review debatable calls to ensure
complete accuracy and fairness for both teams.
While it has been argued that instant replay would
take up too much time and would delay the game, it
is clear in many situations that the extra two or three
minutes could have a huge impact on the final results
of the game. f"
We must realize that while our officials are very
good at what they do, they are only human,
completely capable of making mistakes. It is not fair
to expect them to make completely accurate calls
when so many are debatable. Fbr this reason, instant
replay would be of benefit to not only the players and
coaches, but also the officials. If at any time during a
game an official was unsure about a call, or if the two
referee's opinions conflicted, the play could be
reviewed a second time to clear up any dispute.
With the use of instant replay, the coach in a frenzy
could rest assured that the shot was (or was not) good
for three points. The referees would not have to
compromise on a decision that would mean a win for
one team and a loss for another. Everyone would know
fair and square what really happened, and there would
be no need to argue about the call.
Athletes deserve to play with integrity. Granted, all
of the time they put into their sport, athletes, along
with their coaches, deserve the extra minutes it would
take to ensure accuracy. After all, in many games the
difference between a win and a loss is so small that a
little extra time could make a big difference.
Looking for something to do in Greenville
this Saturday night? With just three home
games left in the regular season for the
men's basketball team, head coach Joe
Dooley and the Pirates look to post a win in
front of a jam-packed stadium. Come out
and support your men's basketball team as
they host conference opponent Virginia
Commonwealth for a 7 p.m. tipoff.
Melvin

history
Sophomore player
improves each game
Ian Robson
STAFF WRITER
A soft-spoken sophomore is
emerging as one of the women's
basketball team's star players.
Danielle Melvin has improved
greatly throughout the course of
the season, raising her career
statistics in almost every category
with each game that is played.
Melvin currently leads the
team in rebounds and has been
part of the starting lineup for
every game this season.
"She is not only a great leader
in stats, but with the other girls as
well Head Coach Anne Donovan
said. "She is a great worker and
she really wants to win
The attention and publicity
received this season comes as a
shock to Melvin; however, she is
quite modest in receiving it. With
an average of 5.3 points per game
and a season total of 99 rebounds,
she has nothing to be modest
about.
"It is a real surprise to me to
get so much attention Melvin
said. "I just keep telling myself to
keep pushing, hoping to better
myself for the team

praised and admired by her
teammates and coaches alike.
Melvin's best game of the
season was against Delaware
State, where she posted 13
rebounds and a season-high of 16
points. Even the Lady Monarchs
of Old Dominion (ranked third in
the country in women's college
basketball) had a hard time
stopping Melvin, as she scored 11
points and grabbed six rebounds.
"I have been playing more
consistently latch Melvin said.
"It has been my main focus
because I want to set an example
Basketball has always played a
big part in Melvin's life, and she
credits many people for their
encouragement on her road to
success. Both Melvin and her
sister succeeded in becoming
college athletes - her sister plays
for N.C. State.
Although the two sisters are
quite supportive of each other, a
sibling rivalry does exist between
them.
"I have always been into
sports Melvin said. "With my ,
sister playing at State and me here
at ECU, it is safe to say that
basketball is in our blood

Former sumo wrestler
Konishiki to appear in
TV commercial
TOKYO (AP) � Pbpular former
sumo wrestler Konishiki will
become the first sumo wrestler or
official in 13 years to appear in a
TV commercial, the Japan Sumo
Association said Tuesday.
The Hawaii-born Konishiki,
formerly Salevaa Atisanoe, will
appear in the commercial for a
Japanese communication
equipment maker to be broadcast
in the United States and Japan
beginning from late March, said
an association official, speaking
on condition of anonymity.
The official declined to
discuss details, including how
much money Konishiki would
receive for the spot from the
company, Tokyo-based Uniden
Corp.
Konishiki, until his retirement
the heaviest sumo wrestler at 612
pounds, in 1987 became the first
foreign wrestler to reach the rank
of ozeki, or champion, the sport's
second highest rank.
Selected Saints
tickets going up in
price
NEW ORLEANS (AP) � The
New Orleans Saints are
increasing ticket prices for the
first time in three years, but
current season ticket holders are
being offered an opportunity to
dodge the hike.
Letters went sent last week to
customers holding about 43,000
season tickets, informing them of
a twin-payment installment plan
that would freeze their prices. No
information was provided about
proposed prices increases.
The team said Monday that a
final price increase has not been
determined and will depend
upon how many season ticket
holders renew. New ticket prices
could increase $3 to $6 each, said
Greg Suit, vice president of
marketing.
Individual tickets in 1997
ranged from $18 to $44.
"We've been trying to hold the
line Suit said. "I don't believe
there is a team in the league that
hasn't had a price increase in the
last three years. Like aU

Steelers release
backup linebacker
PITTSBURGH (AP) � The
Pittsburgh Steelers have released
veteran linebacker Jerry Olsavsky
from the final two years of his
contract!
Olsavsky lost his starting job to
second-year pro Earl Holmes last
summer, and he agreed to take a
pay cut so the Steelers could
create room under the salary cap.
As part of the pay-cut deal,
Steelers officials promised to
release him at his request after
the season.
Director of football operations
Tom Donahoe tried to talk
Olsavsky out of leaving, Ralph
Cindrich, Olsavsky's agent, said
Monday.
He's a unique breed. He could
have earned $1 million sitting on
the bench the next two years,
Cindrich said.

The East Carolinian
Football program welcomes 1998 signees
Tracy m Lai bach
SPORTS EDITOR
With the majority of the football team's recruits
coming from good old North Carolina, head
coach .Steve Logan has big plans for the future
of Inrate football.
"We recruited for the best athletes available
and did not ftxus as much on the positions we
needed filled Logan said. " We drafted for
ability and strength, and I expect these kids to
come in with commitment and perseverance to
play good football
Logan said there is a possibility that a few
more players will be signed on, but at this time,
there have been two kinds of kids of signed: the
big kids and the fast kids.
"Everyone that we expected to initially sign.
we did Logan said. "A lot of these kids could
have played with anyone, but I am real reserved
when it comes to making predictions the
truth is yet to be told
Logan emphasized the importance of the
signees learning how to be not only college
athletes, but also students, and is pleased that
many of the newest additions to his team are
coming to (ireemille from not so far away.
"I want to continue recruiting from North
Carolina Iogan said. "It is a big deal to keep
puts so much fabric in
doing that because it
your program. If 1 can
get ten or 12 kids
from within an hour
from Greenville, I
would like to do that
and I think that
someday, every name
on our recruiting class
will come from North
Carolina
Next year's
recruiting class should
be much bigger, as
about 25 players will
be finishing off their
college careers after
this year.
For now, the coach
is glad the signing is
over so he can concentrate on spending more
time with his players.
"It's not that I don't like recruiting new
plavers. but I would rather be here Iogan
said. "When I am on the road, I know that the
kids are back here in the weight room, and as a
head coach, I want to be there

Skydivers who throw themselves out of airplanes at 14,000
feet, free falling towards the earth at 120 miles per hour,
know about permi-grin � a condition marked by a
permanent smile. Caused by torrential floods of
adrenaline, permi-grin has been known to cause otherwise
sane people to repeatedly jump out of perfectly good
airplanes. It has even been known to cause major positive
changes in attitude and perspective.
Enamored with the idea of flight, Leonardo DaVlnci was
the first to design a parachute. This fascination with flight
is what skydiving enthusiast and tandem instructor
Deeson Swain, a junior business major, says continues to
draw people to the sport.
"There is no other way to truly experience frying than skydiving Swain � "The
exit is the best part of the jump. As soon as your feet leave the plane, the point of no
return, that's the best part
Whether people are drawn to skydiving because they want to fly or because they want
the sudden rush of the jump, one thing is certain � people are flocking to drop zones
and signing up for the ride of their lives.
Nancy and Paul Fayad, owners of the Carolina Sky Sports drop zone near Louisburg,
say technological advances in parachutes and equipment have made the sport safer
and more appealing to a wider audience.
"Everybody's jumping Nancy Fayad said. "Professional people, truck drivers,
housewives � everybody. It's a great stress release. If nothing else, for a brief moment
in time you aren't thinking about anything else
Skydiving as a sport requires extensive training, but for those interested in going along
for a ride and experiencing the thrill of the jump without full responsibility, tandam
diving is a popular option. In a tandem jump, a first timer receives bas,c training before
attaching themselves by harness to a tandam instructor. The instructor, nding on the back of the

Lvid Southerland, a recent ECU graduate, Celeste Wilson, a senior industrial
technology major, Barnes Cole, a sophomore geography major and freshman Jeff
Royster, who jumped together on the same day, reflect the increasing number of
college students interested in skydiving.
"It's something I've wanted to do for a long time Southerland said.
Nearly half of the Fayads' business comes from college students,
some of which have ranked 2nd in style, 3rd in accuracy and 3rd
overall at this years national college skydiving competition.
Currently, N.C. State and Duke have skydiving clubs.
Questions about safety are commonly asked of skyd�vmg
professionals. There are approximately 30 skydiving
fatalities per year out of hundreds of thousands of jumps
performed annually, most of which occur to experienced
skydivers who make judgment errors rather than as a result
of equipment failure.
Swain said another common question asked of him is what
skydiving feels like. Southerland, Wilson, Royster and Cole,
ECU students who admitted to a healthy dose of nerves
prior to jumping, all answered upon landing, "It feels like

Country singer Alan Jackson drones out the words, "Tonight I climbed
the wall His wall is a metaphor for the trials and tribulations that many
singers in his genre experience. Many ECU students at the
Recreational Center also ctimb a wall. Their wall, however, is a literal
one.
Just about every child has a fantasy about walking on the ceiling.
Rock climbing is like being a cartoon character, with suction cups for
shoes, scaling the wall.
Cathy Blackan ECU student, explained her rock climbing
experience. "Usually when I'm climbing It is a rush when I climb to
the top. I have personal satisfaction because I am the one who is
climbing, and I am the one who did it and I am the one who made it to
the top
ECU'S Recreational Center has a climbing wall. It is long and gray
with various broken pieces of clay or odd shaped animals which stick out
from it The outer portions of the wall are more heavily equipped with
these clay like fragments. It is, as a climber moves toward the inward
part of the wall, that the level of difficulty increases. The pieces that
climbers use to grip onto become smaller and more sparse. The
overhang is also more steep.
When I climb there is just a thrill that embodies my being. Equipped
in die garb of snug shoes and harnesses wrapped various ways around
our thighs and waists, John Murphy, a fellow ECU student, and I begin
our journey up the wall. First, we secure ourselves in the ropes by tying
various knots for safety. Then we make sure that the person who is
securing us in case we fall is ready for us to climb. I reach my tiny hands
around the cold clay fragments and boost myself up. The climb begins.
In my imagination, I feel magically transformed. Thoughts of Spider
Man crawling up buildings invades my brain as my foot slips and I fall,
expecting to go spiraling down to the floor with a hard crash. Instead, I
hang suspended like a puppet on a string, secured by ropes held by the
person on the ground below.
"After the initial fall everything seems okay. You feel braver and realize
that when you fall someone will be there to catch you Murphy
explains. He is right.
From the view on the ground, various people can be seen scrambling
up the wall. They are trying to decide where they will position their

Caves connote mystery. Dark caverns weave underneath the earth
forming intricate pathways inticing adventurous spirits to explore
where often few men have been before. Just as caves offer a
mysterious allure, many cavers are equally secretive about where they
cave.
According to Nick Dakas of Greenville's Outpost Trail Shop,
cavers frequent the store preparing for trips, but are tight-lipped
about where they're headed.
"We get a decent amount of people who come in here from all
around Dakas said. "A lot of people are real secretive
Longtime caver Bill Royster, of Greenville, said most cavers
protect the location of their caves because they fear inexperienced
cavers could potentially harm themselves or the delicate
environment inside the cave.
"Putting one's hands on a formation leaves body oils that can have
a deleterious effect on some formations Royster said.
Dakas said cavers use much of the same equipment used for
outdoor climbing, in order to climb and repel within the cave. He also
said the shop can order equipment.
The outdoor center, a part of Recreation Services offers a trip each
year which allows novice cavers to experience the sport of caving
safely. For more information contact 328-6387.

signifying that they have made it. They position their body in a sitting
motion and scoot down the wall. Murphy, like some others, climbs
down.
The ECU Recreational Center does not limit climbing to indoor
access. They offer day and weekend trips to Stone Mountain State park
and Riot Mountain. These trips are offered to the beginning and more
advanced rock climbers alike. The Outpost also offers these kinds of
trips, as well as equipment and clinics which they keep posted on the
board. Nick Dakas, an Outpost employee, said, "Rock climbing is an
upcoming sport. I can go out to the most beautiful areas with my

Climbing does involve personal satisfaction in that it is challenging.

accomplished something important, a material counterpart to Alan

Sunlight shinning through a window is
beautiful, but floating underneath the water
and seeing sunbeams shinning through the
surface of the ocean, is a vision only scuba
divers can enjoy for long.
Scuba diving, short for self contained
underwater breathing apparatus, is a sport
which enables people to carry oxygen on
their backs in sufficient amounts for allowing
exploration of the underwater world.
Scuba diving, first used by the military and
then by spear fishermen, has evolved into a
popular recreational sport. Marilee Cox who,
along with husband Larry, own Blue Region
Scuba says there are several reasons scuba
diving has become so popular.
"One of the greates things about scuba is
that it is a lifelong sport Cox said. "It's such
a stress relief and its popular among the so
called generation x
Ray Scharf, of ECU's exercise sports
science department would agree with Cox.
Scharf says scuba classes are especially
popular among students.
"We have, I would say, one of the best
sport diving programs in the country Scharf
said. "The courses are in demand
Cox said technological advances in
equipment are another reason scuba diving
has taken off as a recreational sport. Women,
Cox said, are partly to thank for the evolution
of equipment.
"It used to be a very macho daredevil
sport, but with advances in training and
equipment its become a very safe sport
Cox said. "When women started diving they
demanded that equipment be more
comfortable and safe
Most divers say that once you learn how to
use the equipment and are trained, scuba
diving opens doors into facinating fields of
interest.
"Scuba opens up a whole new world of
knowledge Scharf said. "We work very
closely with the scientific programs
Scharf pointed out that there are ECU
students diving on Blackboard's ship, the
Queen Anne's Revenge, which was recently
discovered off the coast near Mcorehead
City.
To become involved in the sport, one
must complete a training course offered by a
certifying agency, the largest agencies being
NAUI, PADI and SSI. The sport is regulated
by the Recreational Scuba Training Council
(RSTC) which sets standards for training.
Dive shops around the world require proof of
training before they will rent air tanks. The
majority of certifying agencies belong to the
RSTC with the exception of PADI.
A variety of course options are available in
the Greenville area from local dive shops
such as Blue Region Scuba and Ocean
Wonders Dive Center.
The university also offers a three credit
hour course called EXSS 2278. The course
costs $160, in addition to tuition, and
includes all major equipment and charters.
The univeristy offers an advanced course for
no credit and a master diver and dive
instructor course for three credit hours each.
All university courses offer NAUI
certifications.
Scuba enthusiasts share a fascination for
the underwater world.

life in Greenville got you down? You
don't feel like shelling out the bucks for
a big time movie on a little time screen,
no good bands are playing and your
usual hang-outs are looking way past
routine. Does this all sound
frighteningly familiar? Then break
away and experience the adventures
that wait only a few hours away.
In a mere two-and-a-half to three
hours (depending on how you go) you
could be driving along the beach on
North Carolina's beautiful Outer
Banks. Of course, it's a little cold this
time of year for swimming or
sunbathing, so what else is there to do?
Thanks to Outer Banks Outdoors and
Kitty Hawk Kites there's plenty.
Of course the thing that KHK is
probably best known for is hang gliding.
In fact, the inventor of hang gliding
lives on the Outer Banks himself and,
despite his getting along in years, he
still manages to get in frequent flying
time. Now, most people turn pale at
the thought of soaring above the
ground with a sheet and some
aluminum strapped to their body. But
beginner hang gliding isn't like that at
all. In fact, for the beginner course you
only get a few feet off the ground and
even if you crash, the soft sand
of Jockey's Ridge keeps you
from pain or injury.
Of course perhaps the idea of
frying through the clouds is for
you. If so, tandem hang gliding
may be for you. In tandem hang
gliding you and an instructor are
lifted in the air by boat in the
summer and by ultralight in the
winter. Depending on which
package you desire you can go up to
1,500 or 2,000 ft. Once you reach your
destination altitude, you are cut free
from the tow craft and it is now your job
to land the glider. If you panic or start to
mess up, the instructor is right there to
guide you along.
Still, there are many who have no
desire to feel their feet leave the
ground. So why not try a kayak ecotour?
Outer Banks Outdoors offers 12
different kayak tours ranging from
leisurely floating down canals to going
out searching for dolphins. Most cost
$30-$40 which includes all your
equipment and expert guides. Or, for
the real adventure in you, package deals
are available for multiple kayak
excursions.
Does kayaking sound too challenging
for you? Don't knock it until you've
tried it. With your guide to help you
along and provide instruction, you'll be
paddling like a pro in no time. Plus, in a

suggested for novices
kayak you can go where few other craft
can fit or maneuvet This allows you to
get intimately close with many species
of plants and ducks. Muskrats can often
be seen as well. Rr the real nature
fanatic, summer tours often see many
varieties of snakes along the shore as
well.
Still, if paddling doesn't quite appeal
to you either, you could always rent gear
ranging from in-line skates and bikes to
wind riders and catamarans. Or just
stop by their shop and try the rock
climbing wall. Perhaps you just want a
quiet weekend at the beach to take in
some sights. Besides being a great
historical location, thanks in part to the
Wright Brothers, the Outer Banks
offers many public events throughout
the year. The next event like this,
"Kites With Lights was December 6.
Kite enthusiasts from all over were
there to provide a unique show on
Jockey's Ridge in Kitty Hawk.
No TnWtter what you're in to, if it is
outdoorsy, there is a way to do it on the
Outer Banks. So, next time you're
sitting at home planning another boring
weekend, pick up the phone, gather
some friends and do something totally
different. There's a whole world of
excitement and adventure out there
just waiting for you.
