Plans for special
election underway

I- HIT UK IS H II- h
SGA Vice President Sean McManus
resigned his position after
controversy erupted last week over
his elegibilirv to hold office.
McManus, an international
graduate student from Brisbane.
Australia, was enrolled for classes
last semester, but according to
Assistant Dean of Students Laura
Sweet, he has not yet enrolled for
classes for this semester.
Consequently, McManus is in
violation of Article 4. Section 1 of
the SGA constitution which states
that the position must be held by
someone enrolled as a full-time
student.
McManus told The East
Carolinian last week that he did
enroll for classes last semester, but
his schedule was dropped.
McManus cited excessive parking
tickets as the reason his schedule
was dropped. Nancy Roberson of
Parking and Traffic Services said
that it would have been unlikely
that McManus could have enrolled
last semester because of tags on his
record placed bv Parking and Traffic
Services for five tickets totalling
SI 50.
SGA President Scott Forbes
announced Mondav that McManus
had turned in a letter of resignation
stating that he intended to enroll
and focus on his course work this
semester. Forbes said the
constitution calls for an election to
be held within three weeks and that
preparations for such an election are
underway.
"First we have to name an
elections chair and several people
have expressed interest in having
that position Forbes said. "It (SGA
constitution) clearly states that
there should be an election. I do not

Valentines Day began to
develop a few years after
St. Valentine's death as we
know it. At the time
Christianity was beginning
to take control of Europe.
As part of this effort the
Church sought to do away
with pagan holidays.
Valentine's Day replaced a
mid-February fertility fes-
tival called Lupercalia. In
honor of his sacrifice for
love. Valentine was made a
saint and Lupercalia
renamed in his honor.
The oldest known valen-
tine in letter form was
written in 1477 by Margery
Brews, who urged some-
body named John Paston
to be her "right worshipful

Yes. that is right ladies, there is
such a thing as female condoms.
Female condoms prevent both
prgnancv and STD's, can be
inserted up to eight hours before
intercourse, and provide good heat
transfer characteristics.
For male partners, the female
condemn may more closely emulate
the walls of the vagina than the male
condom.
Folyurethane. which is what the
female condoms are made of, is
suppose to be less prone to tearing
and breaking than the material of
male condoms.
There are disadvantages to using
a female condom, however. Some
people have allergic reactions to the
polvurethane or experience
difficulty correctly inserting and
using the device; the female
condom can make noise during
intercourse, and the cost of the
female condom is generally more
than the cost of the male condom.

Fast summer, the North Carolina
Senate passed a bill which officially
recognized American Sign
Language (ASL) as a modern
language.
"Thev were struggling
with it the year before that and
couldn't get it passed said Michael
Lupo, coordinator of Services lor
Deaf and Hard of Hearing
Students. "They finally got it
passed this August. It was a simple
bill to recognize American Sign
Language as a language, a modern
language
Until Senate Bill 352, ASL
had not previously been recognized
bv the North Carolina State
Legislature, although other states
have had similar legislation in place
for some time now.
"American Sign Language
may be offered in the public
schools, four-year state universities,
colleges and community colleges as
a modern language with credit for
individuals attending the bill

However, this bill does not
require that all schools offer ASL.

"Just because the state legislature

However, the passing of
this bill has been taken as good
news by the deaf community,
according to Lupo and Cottrell.
The question of whether ASL can
even be considered a language has
been a long-standing issue which
the legislature has now settled for
North Carolina

of the proceedings against him is a
longstanding bad relationship with
Harold Jones, dean of the School
of Allied Health Sciences.
DeMarco said he disagreed with
Jones at a Dec. 5 meeting in 1996
and the string of grievances the
University holds against him
began.
Jones was brought in to create a
Ph.D program. DeMarco said the
tension between Jones and
DeMarco became apparent when
DeMarco disagreed with Jones'
proposition to seek a new Ph.D
program participant who had a
concentration in research rather
than clinical skills.
"Why not hire somebody who
has clinical skills to help out the
people of Eastern Carolina?"
DeMarco said. "Why not hire
somebody who can do the Ph.D
program but can give something
back? We're a state program
Jones, however, said he was
open to any suggestions and has no
dislike of DeMarco. He asserts
that his concerns arc for the
faculty of his department, many of
whom have
complained about
DeMarco's behavior.
As dean what I
have to do is balance
his freedoms as
faculty member
versus the other
faculty member's
ability to freely
express their
concerns; 1 have a
responsibility to
protect the whole
faculty, not just one
membei Jones said.
One of the largest allegations
against DeMarco, that he shoved a
colleague after that same
December meeting, is hotly
contested. Three witnesses say
DeMarco pushed Dr. Richard
Shine.who had disagreed with
DeMarco and approached him
after the meeting. DeMarco and
one other witness say that no one
got shoved, and that Shine
touched DeMarco first.
"He in fact pushed me and I
took verbal abuse from him about
what a terrible faculty member I
was, and that I was a
laughingstock Shine said.
DeMarco, who has been with
the university for 15 years and
received tenure in 1991, works
with children who have learning
disabilities. He said he had
received all "good "excellent" or
outstanding annual evaluations
before his conduct or his
professionalism were ever called
into question.
According to DeMarco, faculty
members in the School of Allied
Health Sciences have been
intimidated into testifying against
him.
DeMarco said one faculty
member told him, "Sal, I don't
have tenure and I'm under
pressure from the higher ups
Shine says DeMarco has called
other faculty members names that
arc "shocking and has not only
used abusive language, but has
shaken his finger in other's faces
when he was angry. According to
Shine DeMarco even invited one
person outside to, as Shine alleges
DeMarco saidsettle it like a
man
DeMarco said several
anonymous complaint letters were
placed in his file. He said that it is
against rules in the faculty manual
to place unsigned documentation
in a performance file. He also says
the contents and allegations those
letters contained were not called
to DeMarco's attention until
much later � sometimes months
� after they were filed.
� One such letter was a
complaint from "ten concerned
students" saying that DeMarco's
class instruction was not of a
quality level. DeMarco says his
effectiveness rating for that class
(taken from student surveys) was
4.8 out of 5.
Other allegations, including
misuses of state funds (which
DeMarco said he had the receipts
to clear up) and letters of
complaint from the faculty (also
anonymous) DeMarco said were
likewise kept quiet for up to five
months.
"How can you be reprimanded
and not have a trial?" DeMarco
said.
The University maintains that
DeMarco is verbally and physically
intimidating to the other faculty,
and has been subject to a fair
process. University attorney and
Chancellor's representative
Gregory Hassler commented
about this to The News and Observer.
"This is a misconduct case
Hassler said. "Whether Dr.
DeMarco was targeted for being a
squeaky wheel, whether there was
a secreting away of documents or
anonymous letters, all those things
the university sees as being
irrelevant
If the university is firing him
for disagreeing with the
management, or fighting for his
right to due process and access to
all information regarding his
employment, then they are
infringing on his rights, DeMarco
said.
The university still says they do
not want to have a faculty member
who intimidates other members of
the staff, and as they see it,
prevent them from effectively
doing their jobs.
"The issue here is
whether Dr. DeMarco
is unfit to continue to
be a member of this
faculty�this is not a
case of the university
retaliating against a
faculty member
Hassler said.
"There are no
anonymous letters;
this is not a case of
surreptitiously having
letters in a file
somewhere Hassler
added. "It's more than just
obscenities. He has interfered
with the ability of other faculty
members to do their business
DeMarco said Jones advised
him to "not worry about doing the
best you can; just be satisfied with
being pretty good. It's making
yourself look good that matters
DeMarco maintains that every
time he tried to help the
University make itself look good
� like complaining to Chancellor
Richard Eakin when a colleague
asked a faculty candidate who had
met Richard Simmons if Simmons
was "as big of a faggot in real life as
he is on TV" '�� his concerns were
ignored. DeMarco said Eakin
refused to take action, saying that
the candidate should complain
himself.
"I kept appealing to the
Chancellor, saying we need to
work this out; we need to find
good solutions � that's what
Hassler means by a squeaky
wheel DeMarco said.
However, Shine says DeMarco
is a hindrance to meeting
peacefully and not a help.
"The things he has done, the
loud yelling, the abusive language
he has used.those behaviors are
volatile Shine said. "Its a matter
of being able to discuss things and
come to solutions without
becoming violent
Still, the argument goes on, as
faculty and University
administration contend that
DeMarco is violent and insulting,
and DeMarco says he is being
targeted by an administration led
by Jones, who he says said, "There
are ways of getting rid of tenured
faculty
The university has concluded
13 days of hearings. Lawyers for
DeMarco and ECU have until Feb.
19 to submit any final
the faculty
to
documentation to
committee of tenured individuals
from several departments. The
committee will then make a
recommendation to Eakin, who
docs not have to follow their
advice.
DeMarco said that if he is not
fired, he would like to continue on
with the university in a different
department where he could
continue his work with children.
"What's happened to me can
happen to you DeMarco said.
"My hope is that this gets exposed
and we can devote our time to
giving something back to the
people

AMANDA AUSTIN
NEWS EDITOR
r Students crowded the
sidewalks late Wednesday night
after a fire, caused by a radiator,
broke out on the .second floor of
Fletcher Residence Hall.
Greenville Fire and Rescue
received the call at 10:16 p.m. and
students were immediately
evacuated.
"The majority of the people
were out when we got here said
Jeff Walker, Greenville Fire &
Rescue battalion chief.
The fire started near room 224,
where the radiator was being used
as an ashtray and trash can.
"People stuffed debris and
cigarettes butts in the radiator,
also paper and trash said Walker.
According to Walker, when
officials arrived at the scene of the
fire, the fire had already "fizzled"
or burned itself out.
Smoke was limited to the
second floor and the damage
caused by the fire was minimal.
"There is light smoke in that
wing of the building said Walker.
"There is physical damage, maybe
some smoke smell
At approximately 10:50 p.m.
students were able to return to
their room, left only with the
remaining smell of smoke.

Jennings said that while the
constitution is clear about holding
a special election, it seems to him
to be somewhat wasteful given
that the annual spring election to
select the next vice president is
tentatively slated for April 8.
"It's going to cost the
university a lot of money to hold
an election, but that's what the
constitution says and I'm 99
percent positive that's what we'll
do Jennings said.
McManus, who could not be

letter of resignation that he
leaves, "with a heavy heart and is
thankful for the opportunity to

that, no one believed that it was
actually a language of its own with
its own separate syntax and
grammar. It's taken a long time for
people other than the deaf
community to accept that it's a
separate language from English
"People were scared, were not
comfortable with it, and it just
took some time for people to begin
to accept it as a language Lupo
said.
The ultimate goal, according to
Lupo, is that all public schools will
be required to offer ASL as an
option for students, just as foreign
languages are offered as an option.
"It hasn't reached there yet
Lupo said. "The bill has already
passed, and now the money needs
to be discussed, certification for
teachers; there are a whole bunch
of things that need to be planned"
out, and that's going to take a�
long time 37
However, the possibility of ASL"
one day being offered in all schools
alongside foreign languages does
not mean that it should be
considered a foreign language.
Another aspect of the controversy
over the possibility of offering ASL
as a second language option stems
from the fact that many people do
not recognize deaf cukurc as a
distinct culture in itself.
"One of the controversies is
that we would say that ASL is used
in the culture of deaf people
Cottrell said.
ECU is one of the best-
equipped schools in the UNC
system to offer support services to
deaf and hard of hearing students.
There are approximately 30
students who use these services at
ECU, including'approximately 17
deaf students.

Condoms

"Reasons condoms fail is

Heather Zophy
Health Educator
you, chen perhaps the male
condom is.
The advantages of using these
condoms are that they allow most
men to maintain an erection
longer and they reduce the risk of
accidental pregnancy and STD's.
When used in
conjunction with a spermicide,
condoms provide nearly 100
percent protection from an
accidental pregnancy.
Using condoms reduces a
woman's chance of receiving
infections like pelvic
inflammatory disease, which can
cause infertility. The risk for
cervical cancer may also be
reduced by the use of condoms
during intercourse. Condoms are
also cost effective and easy to
use.
The disadvantages of using
male condoms are that some men
have reduced sensitivity, and
occasionally, a man is not able to
maintain an erection once he
puts the condom on.
Using condom application as
part of foreplay can assist with
this. Some partners of condom
users also report reduced
pleasure during sex when a
condom is used.
Some men and women may
have an allergy to latex, which is
what male condoms are made of.
Condoms can break.
Basically the "reasons
condoms fail is because they are
not used constantly and
correctly said Zophy.
If you have anymore questions
go to the booth outside the
Health Center, because "I want

We've said it before. We say it every year, so much so that we worry we sound like a broken
record.
As Sexual Awareness Week draws to a close and two sexual assaults rocked campus, we at
TEC simply want to remind you, our readers to stay safe and be careful.
We encourage you to take precautions, but we simply want to remind you, to reinforce
what we've said and to say it for the first time to some of you. We realize that a safe campus
cuts down on front-page stories for us, but we'd much rather have good news than news of
another victimization.
TEC reminds you to take precautions. But locking a door is preventing a crime; it's a case
of being safe before you have a chance to be sorry. We preach safe sex and alcohol awareness;
we preach safety.
In the wake of two reported sexual assaults, we remind you not to tempt fate. Use the
buddy system; don't be learn self-defense. Consider spendin&the money for some mace. Get
an escort if you're on-campus; have someone follow you where you're going.
Using the buddy system is a good idea even if you choose to drink. By having a buddy,
there will always be someone you know around, even if you choose to go to a strange place.
But don't go to a strange place alone. And don't accept a drink from a stranger; you never
know what's in it.
Safety is important even if you are at home � on or off campus. Know your neighbors;
look out for them. Lock your doors, especially if you are there alone. If your door has a chain
lock, lock it. Don't open the door, especially if someone you know is not there. If someone
you know is acting strange, don't let them in.
If you live on-campus, don't prop the door openDon't open the door for a person if you
don't know the person. Being nice could get you or someone else sexually assaulted. Most
importantly, if you see someone who looks suspicious, tell someone: the resident assistant, a
police officer, anyone.
If you are on-campus after dark, don't travel alone, park close to your destination and in a
well-lit area. Walk in well-lit areas as well. Keep your keys in your hand; they can be used as
weapons.
College life can get a little scary after a crime has happened. By taking precautions, crime
can be avoided. We remind you to make every week Sexual Assault Awareness Week; make
every week a week to stay safe.

Take time to live life, but plan
spendat least one hour this
week in Joyner Library
studying for your toughest
classspend'a few hours
taking in the fresh air of
youth to think about why
you came to college, and what
you want to achieve this
semester.
I love a good game of basketball,
don't you? Buried amidst political
scandals, threats of "World War"
from Russian prime minister Boris
Yeltsin, homework out the wazoo,
grading papers, editing an academic
journal, and getting work done on
my one-year-old Tacoma that a
grave looking service manager said,
"looks pretty serious there's
nothing like a good game of
basketball from Tobacco Road. The
University of North Carolina's
Tarheels looked superb last
Thursday night.
I suppose it is bit anti-Pirate of
me, and I know my dad would kill
me if he knew I was writing about
Tarheel basketball in his alma
mater's official newspaper, but
damn, Carolina looked indomitable
against Duke.
It's amazing how quickly I have
had to grow up this past year since
graduating. I'm almost certain I've
forgotten where downtown is and
Thursdv night drinking seems like
an ancient memory (let alone
Wednesday night or Tuesday night
for that matter). I've become awash
with deadlines and schedules,
making sure to have my students'
papers graded with remarks they
might actually use. I've gotten used
to waking up at 8 a.m. five days a
week, to preparing dinner, to
walking the dog. It's nice to take in
a good basketball game every now
and then to remind me there are
things other than metaphysics
papers, 5th century rhetoricians,
and 19th century Norwegian
playwrights.
Yes, I've come a long way since,
nearly dropping out of college two,
years ago. Anything is possible when
you are willing to work.
There are times when college
seems useless, when a degree seer
a thousand miles away, when yc
don't know what the hell you'r
gonna do with your life. It is a test
no doubt, but these are the time
that you'll look back on the rest
your life. No matter what road ye
choose in life East Carolir
Univeristy will always be a part
you.
I challenge each and every one
you to spend at least one hour thi
week in Joyner I.ibrarv (tho
made some spiffy renovations
studying for your toughest class. Ii
will be worth it in the end.
I also challenge you to spend a.
few hours taking in the fresh air of
youth (bong hits not included), to
think about why you came to
college, and what you want to,
achieve this semester. Where do you;
want to be a year from now, five
years from now? It can't hurt to ,
think. j
Remember your roots. Enjoy a�,�'
game or two. Live life. That is all I
have to say.

Tenured profs deserve to speak minds
Wrestling fans are not idiots; sport gives back
DeMarco's claims may or
may not be accurate, but his
point rings true: academic
freedom among professors
should not be tampered with.
Dr. Sal DcMarco, a tenured speech-
pathology professor and clinician
here at East Carolina University, is
battling to maintain his
employment. DeMarco has been
cited for misconduct in regard to
disruptive behavior, in particular,
verbal outbursts and physical
intimidation. He is opposing his
removal, claiming the allegations
charged against him are either
greatly exaggerated or are falsified
altogether. DeMarco claims that he
is a victim of a smear campaign
waged by his department in
attempt to muffle his dislike of the
direction his department has taken
recently � emphasizing the
doctoral programs over the actual
clinical work. He continues by
stating that his opposition created
tension and eventually contempt
towards him by his colleagues which
evoked the reports of misconduct
and threat of removal. Are the
allegations a conspiracy or are they
entirely accurate? Who knows?
This case is important , but the
conceptual basis on which it is
founded is even more important�
especially in the long run.
The real issue here is should a
tenured professor be fired for
voicing an opinion, whether it be
extreme or not? DeMarco's claims
may or may not be accurate, but his
point rings true: academic freedom
among professors should not be
tampered with. Tenure provides
the academic license for a professor
to express an opinion or way of
thinking whether ir be a
fundamental facet of the subject
matter or view of the department
and that department's objectives
without the risk of being fired.
This is not to say tenure gives
professors the right to be God or the
right to violate common law, and
anyone can admit some professors
do abuse their power under the
shelter of tenure. These nutty
professors, though, are too few and
far between and not worth the risk
of extinguishing or diminishing the
status and honor of tenure.
If professors feel their job
security is risked, it negatively
affects their instruction, which
negatively affects student learning
which consequently, and perhaps
inevitably, affects potency in the
fields which are being instructed,
furthermore; university professors
did not attend school for all those
years and write dissertations only to
be told how to instruct the very
material they went to school a
gazillion years to master.
Universities need to decide if
tenure is indeed valued and
"sacred IfmK, it is imperative that
the causes and process for removal
are to be consistent and universal �
not the covert, "Operation
Mongoose" affairs that usually
occur according to many professors
besides DeMarco. The recent cases
regarding tenure have in fact
evolved into more of a due process
violation while the actual alleged
reasons for removal lurk in the
shadows.
One of DeMarco's misconduct
incidents was calling a colleague
inept and incompetent. Too bad for
that poor person. I'm sure everyone
has been called worse. That is
definitely no reason to fire someone
� especially in the medical field.
In our age of over-sensitivity and
political correctness, tenure for
professors needs to be
acknowledged, strengthened, and
guarded more than ever. Tenure
safeguards not only professors'
rights but also students' rights to a
complete education in their field of
study.
I am writing in response to a recent
column done by Britt Honeycutt.
She unwittingly bashed the sport of
professional wrestling, and in doing
so, offended the majority of ECU's
student body.
You sec Britt, and any other
naysayers, wrestling is a sport which
requires intense and painstaking
conditioning. My knowledge of the
sport of wrestling comes from my
lineage to one of the great
Luchadores, Rey Mysterio, Jr.
Known for his high-flying
maneuvers and acrobatic displays of
power, he is constantly winning. Not
only does Rey always dominate his
opponents, but he often sponsors
needy children in the slums of
Mexico City.
Some might counter with the
statement that wrestlers are not real
athletes, but their time is filled with
other sports-related activities. The
only reason many wrestlers only
appear once a week is that the other
days, their time is consumed with
training. Other daily activities
include working out in the gym,
eating healthy and running
countless miles to increase stamina
and athletic prowess.
In conclusion, the basis for the
accusation that we are idiots for
watching wrestling is indeed false. If
you think that denying us the right
to watch muscular studs bounce
around a ring, you are wrong. Britt,
this is an invitation to get in the ring
with just one professional wrestler.

Professors are here to spark student imagination
The post-tenure review article in
Feb. 10 edition brought back some
old memories about a few professors
I would love to see evaluated. As a
younger student, I was under the
impression students were the ones
who were apathetic and
unmotivated. When I speak to
people about a better future, I find
many who want to become involved.
Many just need to show them how. I
have come to the realization that
apathy on this campus must come
from the top of the hierarchy.
Students come to college in
search of a better future, with high
expectations and dreams. We come
to reach for the stars and want to
believe walking on water is a
possibility. Somewhere along our
journey, we run into these professors
who believe they are the judge and
jury of our success. Rather than
inspiring us to color outside the
lines, some confront us with
discouragement and
disappointment.
I am under the impression
professors think tenure equals
success. Success, in my opinion, is
the ability of the professor to
connect with the masses, the ability
to revolutionize the thought
process. A successful professor
encourages all students to think
positive. Unfortunately, professors
tend to pass judgment on people as
early as the freshman level, writing
them off forever. I know, I have
been there. So maybe it is the
tenured professors' success under
question, right? Would it not be nice
if students had a say in reevaluating
department heads and tenured
professors? Have you ever had a
disagreement with a tenured
professor and witnessed the
arrogance some can portray? It can
be an intimidating process arguing
over our own education and our
respect as human beings.
I truly believe our professors are
the catalysts who determine
whether our campus is active oi
apathetic. Our professors eithei
spark our imagination or lead us ir
the wrong direction.

DJ Premier
New York Reality
Check 101
6 OUT OF 10
MAURICE BLUE
STAFF WRITER
"This is what hip-hop is. Not to
take anything from anyone else, but
don't define hip-hop by what you
hear twenty times a day on the radio
or what MTV constantly puts in
your face. This is real hip-hop�
Mr. Dave, Director of A & K for
Payday Records.
Raphip-hop music is broken
down into two main segments.
There is the mainstream, which is
musk constantly getting played on
television and radio, sometimes
ruining the song by simply
overplaying it. Regardless of why
the artist made the song, they get
paid a great deal. Then there is the
underground, which many music
purists label as "real hip-hop
Regardless of why the artist made
the song, they do it because they
love it and love rockin' the party,
and money is an insignificant factor.
Continuing the tradition of
underground hip-hop is DJ Premier
with his compilation album, New
York Reality Check 101. Premier is
apparently one of the most well
known DJs in the New York
underground circuit, featured on
the album are underground names
such as J-Live, Company Flow,
Godfather Don and many others
just doing what they love, creating
hip-hop purism.
Rea&y Check is definitely geared
towards a pure hip-hop loving
audience. The songs on the album
all have smooth flows, and the
artists all have a good voice for their
craft. One of the best songs is
Chodair's "21 Years telling of the
tough times and all that he's seen
throughout his life. He's
determined to keep his head up so
that one day he can reach his
dreams. J-Uve's "Braggin' Writes"
is another good one, as he tells of
just being the best there is, shutting
down every other performer in the
business because "everybody's
rappin but only few can flow
The down side of the album
(yes, there is one) is that, although
all the artists have a good voice for
the album, they all basically sound
the same. The vocal range is very
limited for all the artists, as if there
is one set margin and the range goes
only a notch or two above and a
notch or two below. In addition, all
the beats have a kind of hard
overtone. The beats were not made
with a party in mind, but with a
hard-edged street mentality.
Though the beats are sweet and
work for the songs, a little variety
would have been nice.
The press release received with
the CD mentions Premier's
"impeccable arsenal of scratching,
blending and backspinning This
"arsenal isn't that impressive; in
fact, it's downright basic. Premier's
blending is constant, but his
scratching drops off some after the
first half of the album. Although it
remains in brief interludes, there is
that and that annoying "Premier, DJ
Premier, P-P-P-P-Premicr"
Overall, Premier's CD is pretty
good. Maybe because this is North
Carolina and Premier is a New York
DJ, not as much appreciation for his
work is shown as there perhaps
should be. Premier put together a
good CD and it's definitely worth
buying. Mainstream stores won't
carry it; you can probably find it at a
mix tapeCD shop somewhere. If
you can get a copy of it, happy
listening.

Movies undoubtedly influence our
lives in ways we would probably

Hollywood has had its way with us

the silver screen. Valentine's Day, a

Like Nell Carter in a thong bathing suit,

categories of movies dealing with love. Within
the categories are film summaries along with
what lesson the movie offers us in the ways of
love. Hopefully, you'll find something you

Killers lacks Hong Kong heart
7 OUT OF 10
MARK BRETT
SENIOR WRITER
The Replacement Killers is not a Hong
Kong action flick. Let's get that
straight right off the bat. Though it
was produced by John Woo, Hong
Kong's leading action director, and
though it stars Chow Yun-Fat, one of
Hong Kong's leading actors, The
Replacement Killers is a Hollywood
action film. And that's the problem
with it.
Hollywood action is stuck in
endless repetition of Die Hard,
becoming more and more like a bad
video game with each passing year.
Hong Kong action, on the other
hand, is marked by highly stylized
gunplay, death-defying stunt work
and heavily conflicted characters.
It's been said that Honp Kong's
action films take tired concepts and
make them fresh again. It's no
wonder Hollywood's turning to
Hong Kong to reinvigorate the
genre.
So why doesn't Hollywood let
Hong Kong people make their kind
of movie in America? The
Replacement Killers, on the surface,
seems to be an attempt to do just
that. Chow Yun-Fat stars as John
Lee, an assassin who balks at killing
a cop's child and thus sets himself
against the mob. Matters are further
complicated by the fact that Lee
knows his family will die if he
doesn't do as he's told. So by saving
one child, he dooms his mother and
sister to death.
Sounds like the set-up for a great
Hong Kong actioner, especially with
Chow Yun-Fat in the lead role.
Chow is an excellent actor, with
screen presence to burn. In his
hands, John Lee becomes a multi-
layered character, remorseless but
ultimately moral.
Likewise, Mira Sorvino does a
good job as Meg Coburn, the
document forger whom Lee goes to
for a fake passport back to China.
Cobum is a hardened criminal, but
still soft enough that she becomes
the moral center of the film. Sorvino
pulls the characrer off with ease, and
manages to come off as more than
just a sex object.
Director Antoine Fuqua captures
the flavor of Hong Kong's balletic
gunplay well. Chow Yun-Fat dances
through gun battles in exquisite slo-
mo, and any number of really
interesting sets get blown all to hell.
Visually, the film is stunning.
But that's where the
effectiveness of The Replacement
Killers ends. More than just being
choreographed, the violence here is
sanitized for American
consumption. Head wounds barely
bleed, and gunshot victims die way
too peacefully. In an effort to lessen
the violence, Fuqua has,instead,

complete sentences and make some
sort of point. Just another ass with an

glamorized it.
The fascination with Hong Kong
violence is that it's ugly. In the real
world guns blow bodies apart, and
the Chinese don't flinch from
showing that. When somebody gets
shot in a Hong Kong film, you feel it.
And the horrible juxtaposition of
that pain with the beauty of the
gunplay itself makes a statement.

It has recently been brought to my
attention that I'm some kind of
generational freak. Perfectly
innocent of my own perversity, I
engage in, what I am told is,
behavior of a shocking and, frankly,
bizarre nature. Yes, I prepare and
devour fully functional meals,
usually with at least three of the
major food groups represented.
Sometimes, I even manage to swing
all four.
But my perversity does not end
there. Oh, no. Even my manner of
eating these meals is an anomaly. I
do not hastily devour them while
standing over the sink. Nor do I sit
on the floor in front of the
television, plate balanced
precariously in my lap. No, I eat at a
table, with a napkin and full
complement of utensils arrayed
before me. And not a measly coffee
table, either. I own an honest-to-
God dining table, and scat mys
proudly behind it for three squf
meals a day.
I know I am sick, but I do '
seek reform. I like sitting, thank .

Replacement Killers
continued from page 7
Far from glorifying violence, Hong
Kong films are aware of the wages of
sin.
And that leads us to The
Replacement Killers' other big flaw �
the story. John Lee is a character
seeking redemption, and
considering the severity of his
crimes, he should pay a high price
for that salvation. If Lee tries to save
the cop's son from the replacement
killers of the title, his family dies.
It's a trade-off, and one so painful
that we can accept his redemption.
Fuqua could have gotten a lot of
mileage out of showing us Lee's
family, and showing us his anguish
over their demise as he goes about
doing the right thing. It would have
broken up the endless action
sequences, and made us care more
about the people in the path of the
bullets.
But we don't get that. And in the
end, Lee even finds a way out of his
situation. He makes no real sacrifice,
so his redemption rings hollow. It
does give us the happier ending
Hollywood loves, however, which
brings us back to the central
problem.
If you want to see this kind of
thing done right, check out some of
Chow Yun-Fat's earlier, Hong-Kong-
made efforts. I would recommend
The Killer most highly, but Hath
Boiled and A Better Tomorrow are
good, too.
But if all you care about is well-
choreographed gunfights (and
there's nothing wrong with that),
The Replacement Killers is a feast.
Ultimately, though, it only captures
the surface gloss of Hong Kong
action. The heart of the style gets
left behind.

which I now know most people of
my peer group do not engage), I
have determined that the
f Hamburger Helper Food Product
recipe is the ultimate pinnacle of
culinary excellence. Yes, in
Hamburger Helper, the fine folks at
the Betty Crocker Test Kitchens
have managed to create the perfect
Food Product.
Think about it. The recipe is so
simple that a relatively dexterous
five-year-old couldn't mess it up.
Sure, he'd burn himself horribly on
i testy le
The East Carolinian
the red-hot cooking eye of the radar
range, but once you've bandaged
him up and he has choked back the
tears, he'd have a perfect batch of
delicious, steaming hot Hamburger
Helper Food Product as his reward.
And not only is the recipe simple,
it's also a perfect entity unto itself.
Nothing you can do or add will
improve the recipe in any way. Quite
the contrary, adding anything not
suggested on the box will lead to a
certain lessening of the Hamburger
Helper Food Product experience.
Only a light sprinkling of salt and
pepper over the freshly-browned
ground beef should be attempted.
In its natural state, Hamburger
Helper Food Product gives even the
most devoted sink-cater a healthy
dose of three major food groups:
meat, grain and dairy. Plus, if you
add mushrooms (suggested on the
box, but not recommended by this
writer), you get a whopping fourth
food group thrown into the mix.
And for the vegetarians in the
audience, rumors abound of hearty
vegan souls substituting tofu or even
kiature burger for the wholesome
cow flesh that the product's name
indicates. I, myself, often use
ground chicken in lieu of beef. I
must note here, lest you think my
earlier claims mistaken, that these
products are intended by the
manufacturers as ground beef
substitutes, and thus do not
represent a true deviation from the
Hamburger Helper Food Product
recipe, which, as previously
established, is perfection itself.
So there you have it. A food that
can be enjoyed by all, from the most
harried sink-eater to the most
devoted table-eating pariah in the
world. In these troubled times, we
need something we can all agree on,
and Hamburger Helper Food
Product could very well be the
key to a better tomorrow. Try it,
won't you? You'll be glad you did.
And maybe, just maybe, so will
the world.

The East Carolinian
Olympic lugers search for gold
Luge sparks interest in the USA
CHRIS CABRAL
(il EST WHITER
The 1998 Winter Olympic games in Nagano,
Japan, started R:b. 6. An array of interesting sports not
found in eastern North Carolina will be among the
events athletes will compete in, including ski jumping,
the Nordic combined, cross country skiing, bobsled and
luge.
"Luge a word derived from the French word for
sled, is a sport where the luger (also called 7 slider) lies
flat on his or her back and goes feet first down an icy
track at speeds exceeding 85 mph.
The sport of luge was introduced to the international
scene in 1883 in Davos, Switzerland. However, it did
not appear on the Olympic schedule until 1964 in
Innsbruck, Austria. The VS. lugers have represented
their country in every Olympics since.
The sport has three categories: men's singles,
women's singles and men's doubles.
The sled pod (where the luger lays down) and
runners (the arc portion that rides above the steel) are
made of fiberglass while the blades (steels) are made of
steel. The athletes perform wearing a rubberized racing
suit, a helmet, a clear visor, gloves with spikes and shoes
(called booties).
The object of the sport is to have the fastest
combined time to the bottom of the luge run. Luge is
one of the only sports to be measured to the thousandth
of a second. Skiers, for instance, only measure their
speed in hundredths of a second.
Crashing is a common event in the world of luge, but
Olympic-caliber sliders only crash one to two times in a
six month season, a frequency that is actually not too
severe considering luge athletes have about six training
runs a day. Beginners, on the other hand, crash
frequently.
A typical trip down the luge track consists of a
powerful start and precision steering. At the start gate
at the top of the track, the slider begins bv sitting on the
sled and grasping handles on the side of the gate. .After
the slider rocks back and forth, he or she explodes out of
the gate, paddling with the spiked gloves. After the
paddling, the sVidei Vies down and begins a roughly 50-
second journey. On TV it looks like the slider is just
lying there, but he or she is actually steering with subtle
movements. Like driving a car, less steering is required
the faster you go.
"The slider coordinates the strong steering by
putting pressure with his or her legs on the runners while
at the same time negotiating the smaller, light steering
curves with his or her shoulders said JcffScheucr, former
Olympic luge conditioning and start coach.
The handles are also used for some steering. The key to victory is
trying to relax while going 80-plus miles per hour. Relaxing on the sled
separates the winners from the losers, as the sled does not respond well
when the slider is tense. When the slider is relaxed, the sled is very
responsive, meaning a chance for a faster time.
In the early days of luge, the U.S. was the laughingstock in the luge
Former U.S
National Team member and current ECU senior Chris Cabral prepares for his first run in the 1992 Olympic Luge Trials.

Kj$hPC Amcricans continued to struggle until a corporate sponsor,
NYNEX, was brought in to lend financial support. Lake Placid, NY
home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics, was the only luge track in
North America until the 1988 Olympics came to Calgary, Canada. The
newest luge track in the United States is at Park City, Utah, and will
make its Olympic debut in 2002. Today, the U.S. has won just about
everything (world championships, world cups,Junior events) except an
Olympic medal. The countries that have
dominated the luge in the Olympics and
won medals are Germany, Italy, Austria and
Russia.
According to Schcucr, the track in
Nagano (Spiral) is very curvy and has two
uphill sections, a rarity for any speed sport.
The course was designed with nature in
mind. Old and ailing trees were selected to
be cut down, leaving the young trees in
place. The track was built in the path of the
knocked down trees. This track also favors
heavier sliders, which means the start is very
important.
The United States has never won a medal in
iuge at the Olympics, but that could change
this year.
The United States actually has two
legitimate medal threats in the men's
doubles competition. Mark Grimmette, a
veteran slider from Muskegon, Mich and
Brian Martin, from Palo Alto, Calif are the
current world cup champions while last
year's overall world cup champions, Chris
Thorpe, from Marquette, Mich, and Gordy
Sheer, from Crotan-on-thc-Hudson, N.Y,
could very well win medals.
"The men's and women's singles
only true hopeful is veteran slider Wendell
Suckow Scheuer said. "Suckow is the
1993 World Champion and placed fifth in
the 1994 games at Lilihammer, Norway
These Americans have faced a lot of
adversity on the bumpy road to the
Olympics. They have raced in frigid places
that make Green Bay look tropical and
trained in less than luxurious countries like
the former Yugoslavia, Latvia and former
East Germany.
It is aiwut time that the U.S. brings
home the gold. Nagano could end the 34-
year-old losing streak started in 1964 in
Innsbruck to give the VS. its first-ever
medal. So when you tune in to the games,
make sure to root for the ski jumpers,
Nordic combined racers, biathletes and
bobsleddcrs. They will all be trying their
hardest. And for all of you diehard luge fens,
get ready, because this could finable your
year.

Both the Pirates and their

Each has seven new players who
could see action in the first game.
The Pirates manhandled the
Tarheels last season, finishing
with a 4-1 record against them
and a 49-24 record overall.
However, Kee claims that the
game will be a struggle this time

Basketball's regular season is
approaching quickly, and if you
listen closely enough, you can
almost hear the cheers and
excitement of a quickly
approaching 1998 March Madness.
So you're thinking, what are the
chances that ECuis going to the
Sweet 16 this year, or maybe even
the coveted Final Four? Well, who
knows? But one thing that we do
know is that the ECU men's
basketball has been showing signs
of vigor and improvement toward
the end of this season.
"We have had a lot of injuries
that threw us off a litdc bit, and
we have not been playing to our
abilities Assistant Coach Lew
Hill said.
�With a come-from-behind 83-
79 home victory over Virginia
Commonwealth last Saturday
and another home win last
Tuesday night over American
University to complement it,
ECU is slowly making their way
to their fifth consecutive
winning season.
"We want to finish out the
regular season strong and then
go into the post season with a
new attitude Hill said. "We
have been improving as the
season has gone on
Since mid-December, the
Pirate front court has faced three
major injuries: Alphons van
Ireland was out until Jan. 17
with a broken left hand, Neil
Punt broke his right foot in the
UNC-Asheville game and has '
still not returned and Dink �
Peters was out for two games
due to a strained calf muscle.
As far as the women's team
goes, the Lady Pirates have
struggled this season. They are
currently 7-15 overall, with a 3-9
record in their conference, the
Colonial Athletic Association.
Their conference wins came
against American University and
JMU last month and the third
came last weekend against
Richmond University.
"We played Virginia
Commonwealth to a one-point
game and we beat Richmond last
weekend, which should give us
momentum into our next two
home games against William and
Mary and JMU Head Coach
Anne Donovan said.
The Lady Pirate point leaders
are Shay Hayes and Misty Home
with 9.3 and 9.1 points per game
respectively. They are led on the
boards by Hayes and Danielle

down 6.6 and 6.1 rebounds per
game respectively.

Dutch speedskater
injured in 500-meter
crash
NAGANO, Japan (AP) � Dutch
speedskating medal hope Erben
Wennemars, who suffered a
separated left shoulder in the 500-
meter race, will not be able to
compete in two other Olympic
events.
The 23-year-old Wennemars
suffered the injury Tuesday when
Norway's Grunde Njos crashed
into him coming off the final turn.
The Dutchman also was entered
in the 1,000 and 1,500, but the
injury will prevent him from
further racing.
"This is it for him in Nagano
said team doctor Valentijn Rutgers.
The skater also has a tear in his
shoulder socket.
Njos, racing on the inside lane,
lost his balance and slid under the
feet of Wennemars, who flipped
into the padding, his upper left
arm smashing into the ice beneath
the wall.
Olympic visitors
warned to be on alert
for gangsters
NAGANO, Japan (AP) � In
staging the Olympics, Nagano is
exposing the world to some of
Japan's virtues, such as grace and
patience, and also to one of the
country's warts: organized crime.
In The Guide to Nagano,
published by one of Japan's largest
newspapers, guests arc urged to
show their solidarity with Japanese
police by patronizing only those
bars, restaurants, hotels and stores
that have posted anti-organized-
crime stickers in their windows.
While Japan's low crime rate
and success at public safety have
long been touted globally, Olympic
visitors undoubtedly arc less aware
of the degree to which gangsters
have penetrated Japanese
commercial life.
George Hackel of
Germany won his
third straight Olympic
gold medal
NAGANO, Japan (AP)�Georg
Hack of Germany won his third
straight Olympic gold medal in
men s luge, with a total time of 3
minutes, 18.436 seconds.
Armin Zocggler of Italy won the
silver in 3:18.939, and Jens
Mueller of Germany earned bronze
in 3:19.093.
Weather postpones
alpine skiing for
second day
HAKUBA, Japan (AP) � Snow
falling at the rate of an inch (2.5
centimeters)an hour forced
postponement of the slalom
portion of the men's combined
event at the Olympics on Monday,
the second straight day Alpine
racing was upended by the
weather.
The combined slalom, already
moved once because of the snow,
was rescheduled for Tuesday,
although more snow was expected
throughout the day. There were
icy conditions underneath, which
is why they were trying to scrape
the snow off. !t was down to the
ice, but the ice was breaking
through in a few spots, said Ed
Podivinsky of Canada, a bronze
medalist in the 1994 Olympic
downhill at Lillehammer. They
could have gotten a few skiers
away, but the later skiers would
have had a tough time.
Snowboarders mellow

YAMANOUCHI, Japan (AP)�
Officials postponed the Olympics
women's
Snowboarding giant slalom
Monday after a storm dumped 30
centimeters (about 1 foot) of snow
on Mount Yakebitai overnight.
The 24-hour postponement �
fog and snow obscured visibility on
the course � left the boarders
with time on their hands. Most
kept busy in mellow ways: playing
video games, getting together with
family, and, for a special treat,
going to see the Japanese snow
monkeys at a nearby hot springs.

NAGANO. Japan (AP)�An
American bobsledder who failed a
test for a banned stimulant asked a
sports arbitration panel Mondav to
allow him to stay at the Olympics,
even though he can't compete.
Michael Dionne, a pusher on
the No. 3 U.S. four-man sled, went
before the
International Court for
Arbitration in Sports to appeal his
three-month ban
for using ephedrine.
With the support of the U.S.
Olympic Committee, Dionne told
the panel that
he had inadvertently taken the
drug as pan of a cold medicine,
and asked
that his three-month
suspension from competition be
wiped out.
There was no word when the
panel would announce its decision.
.Although the urine sample was
collected at a World Cup meet in
Calgary last November, Dionnc's
suspension was not announced
until last week. It was made
retroactive to the date of the test,
so he will be eligible to compete
again Feb. 22, the last day of the
games.
Dionne was allowed to march in
the opening ceremony Saturday
when the USOC brokered a 9t-
hour stay of his suspension. He
won't be able to compete, however,
even if the suspension is
overturned, because the USOC
has substituted for him in the sled
and the deadline for further roster
changes has passed.

The East Carolinian
Students left out of logo selections
University logo cost too
much considering ample
supply of art students
two year project.
If the athletic department was
"trying to do what was best for the
students why did they release
the new logo on Jan. 2, when the
majority of students did not come
back the weekend before classes
began on Jan. 13?
The new logo was unveiled at
the first home conference
basketball game, long before many
students had returned to school
from winter break. Why unveil
something as important as the
school mascot, while no students
were here? Is the mascot supposed
to be kept a secret from the
student population?
Why did the athletic
department spend $30,000 on a
new logo? ECU has a nationally
known art school, as well as a
highly reputable marketing
department. Why didn't the
students have an opportunity to
design the logo?
Think of the money that would
have been saved by having the
students design the logo. Just
because other colleges and
professional teams use design
companies, does that mean we
have to be like everyone else? The
students could have designed
something just as good or maybe
even better, but we'll never know.
More students would jump at a
shot to be involved if the school let
them have more opportunities to
be involved. After all, it is the
students who make the university
a university, not the athletic
department.
Even if the $30,000 did not
come from state funding or
academic funding, the money
could have been spent on
something more concrete. How
can a new logo guarantee success
in our athletic teams? I guess the
athletic department is saying that
we can all blame FeeDee for our
defeats but don't worry, they spent
$30,000 to get a new mascot, so
success is definitely in our future.
If students are shut out on
something as important as our
school mascot, it � makes you
wonder what else we are left out
of?

UT-Chattanooga To
replace Kentucky
(SID)�Traditional power
Alabama and new Conference USA
member Army are among the
opponents listed on the 1998 East
Carolina University football
schedule, announced Tuesday by
Pirates' Director of Athletics Mike
Hamrick.
Hamrick also announced that
ECU has added the University of
Tennessee at Chattanooga as a
home opponent Sept. 12, replacing
the University of Kentucky which
last month informed East Carolina
officials of its intent not to fulfill
its contractual agreement to play
the Pirates in Greenville.
"With Kentucky's decision not
to honor its commitment to play
East Carolina this September, we
were left with very few scheduling
options, while at the same time
having to resolve this situation in a
short amount of time. The
University of Tennessee at
Chattanooga has filled the void left
on our schedule and we are
pleased to have the Mocs coming
to Greenville
While Chattanooga has been
added to the Pirates' 1998
schedule, ECU officials have
indicated that the issue with
Kentucky has yet to be resolved.
"The University and the State
Attorney General's office have
made it clear that each intends to
do all it can to hold the University
of Kentucky responsible for its
unilateral actions, said Ben Irons,
University Attorney.
Hamrick added "the University
and Attorney General's office arc
continuing to evaluate our legal
options in regards to this matter,
and one should not consider this
issue closed. We will explore all
available options
The State Attorney General's
office has also continued to
evaluate ECU's next course of
action. "It is unfortunate that
Kentucky's unwillingness to keep
its word has forced ECU to find
another opponent said Attorney
General Mike Easley. "While
Kentucky should have shown up as
promised, ECU officials were
smart to look for and secure a
replacement team and I am
pleased that UT-Chattanooga
agreed to play.
"Our office will continue to
pursue information from UK and
the University of Louisville so that
we can assist ECU in determining
whether further legal action is
advisable
East Carolina will face a
challenging schedule during the
fall of 1998. A week before
Chattanooga plays in Greenville as
the first opponent in expanded
Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium (43,000),
the Pirates will open their season
at Virginia Tech (Sept. 5). ECU
visits Mid-American Conference
foe Ohio University (Sept. 19)
before an open date on Sept. 26.
Army comes to Greenville for
the first time on Oct. 3, making its
first road appearance as a member
of Conference USA. The Black
Knights become the league's
eighth football-playing member
with the start of the 1998 season.
The Pirates will play back-to-back
games against schools from the
state of Alabama the following two
weeks. The University of Alabama
at Birmingham (the Blazers will
become a C-USA football member
in 1999) comes to Greenville Oct.
10, one week prior to East
Carolina's contest with the
Alabama Crimson Tide. The
Pirates will meet the Crimson

Nagano struggles to
givegames that Asian
look
NAGANO, Japan (AP) �With the
Winter Olympics making their
return to Asia after nearly three
decades, Nagano is determined to
present the world with a heavy
dose of Asian exotica.
In today's Japan, that can be
easier said than done.
Distractions like McDonald's
and 7-Elevcn are everywhere.
There are vending machines on
almost every street corner, and
used car dealerships line the
highways out of town.
Such urban cliches are normally
dismissed with little thought, a
fact of modern life.
In the next two weeks, the
games and Nagano will be watched
by viewers in 160 countries � an
increase of 40 countries over the
Lillchammcr Olympics of 1994.
lb give its U.S. audience the
necessary local color, CBS has built
a studio on the grounds of the
city's ancient Zenko-ji, one of the
oldest and most picturesque
Buddhist temples in Japan.
The opening ceremony
featured sumo wrestlers, a
traditional pole-raising ceremony
and children clad in the straw
clothing of centuries past.
Looking for an Asian spin is
only natural. The Nagano
Olympics are the first Winter
Games in Asia since Sapporo,
Japan, hosted them in 1972.
