touched and kissed her in a sexual
manner, and forced her to engage in
oral sex with him in a complaint she
filed Monday in the Pitt County
Superior Court. Speier denies
Mavo's allegations.
Speier and university officials say-
that an internal investigation was
done after Mavo's initial allegations,
and that Speier was cleared of all
accusations.
"The university is familiar with
the allegations, the allegations were
brought to the attention of the

Experiment shows residence halls
still vulnerable to intruders
TEC repeatedly gains
entrance into female halls

VSSISTVS r NEWS El
In light of the recent rape at
Cotton Hall and the crackdown on
security in housing all over campus.
it might still be possible for
intruders to find their way into the
residence halis.
Despite the fact that most
women won't let a stranger into the
dorms, an experiment conducted
by TEC illustrated rhat anyone
may still be able to walk into the
residence halls because many
residents do not close doors behind
them. Some were found to hold
doors open for strangers.
Two male students were sent to
Cotten and Creene Halls, both all
female residences, to monitor the
number of times they could get in
with a simple lie: "My girlfriend
lives on the second floor and I've
forgotten the phone number; could
you please walk me up?" It that
measure failed they attempted to
simply tail someone into the
residence hall.
The first male : .dent
participant. Derrick Reid. walked
up to a Greene resident entering
the building and told her the story
about his supposed girlfriend on
the second floor She let him in.
"I was going to walk him up and
then if she wasn't there. I was
going to walk him back down said
the resident who let Reid in.
University officials say letting
anvone into the building whom you
do not know is putting other
residents in danger.
"We've done quite a bit of
programming in the halls and we
will continue to do that, but it's
the residents that are ultimately
iivi t� I'ic f. :l attention t i
what's going on; ultimately, it's up
to them said Wayne Parsons,
coordinator of Cotten and lleming
halls.
The good news is Reid couldn't
get anyone else to let him into the
building. No one else fell for his
charm or his lie at Cotten or
Creene.
"1 think people need to start
caring what's going on around
here said a resident of Cotten
Hall who refused to let Reid in
and who shut the door behind
herself "Because of everything
that's going on we're freaked out
we might as well start changing
However, our next male
student. Bobby Tugglc, had better
luck gaining access. He walked in
behind residents twice at Creene
and four times at Cotten Hall.
None of the women who had
inadvertently let him in noticed
that he had entered behind them.
When he continued walking past
one group of girls, into the inner
area of Cotten Hall, they didn't
stop him. Though both girls said
thev would have called their RA
later, they admitted that Tugglc
could have already been on another
hall or upstairs.
Disturbingly enough, this was a
trend that continued on Tuggle's

Squirrels around campus are
generally viewed as nuisances or
cute additions to the community,
but the little gray critters have
pretty complex habits as they gear
up for winter.
A recent study at the University
of California-Berkeley showed that
squirrels have far better memories
than humans do, burying food for
the winter in hundreds of different
sites. Later the squirrels dig up the
food in order to have enough for
the cold months.
The study found that humans,
given the same situation, would
only be able to remember the
locations of six or seven burial
places.
But good memories don't make
for good health. Paul Fusco, a
receptionist at the University of
Minnesota's Wildlife
Rehabilitation Center, said
squirrels are the No. 2 or No. 3
animal they see.
"Usually the most common
thing is for squirrels to be injured
by pets Fusco said.
He also said the employees at
the center recommend that people
don't feed the squirrels because he
has found they are the most likely
animal to bite people.
According to the Minnesota
Department of Natural Resources,
the 1997 gray and fox squirrel
hunting season began Sept. 13 and
ends Feb. 28. But aggravated
students shouldn't be running for
their guns quite yet.
Students on campus have
differing views on the squirrel
population.
Both Candy Ashbach, a UM
senior in psychology, and Mark
Bowmer, a UM junior in
psychology, have had close
encounters of the squirrel kind.
"I think they're a nuisance
Bowmer said.

Clay named compliance
officer for med schooL
Position regulates

euzabfth Rack
staff winter
Dr. Thomas H. Clay, assistant
professor of psychiatric medicine
at the School of Medicine, was
recently named compliance
officer for the medical school.
A compliance officer is in
charge of ensuring that faculty and
staff are adhering to rules and
regulations regarding
documentation and billing of
medical services.
"Official compliance offices
are relatively new in health care
and are happening all over the
country Clay said. "The school
administration decided it needed
to set up a formal compliance
operation
Initially, Clay and the staff
chosen are going to write a
compliance plan, which is policies
and procedures for the school.
"We will also engage in the
education of faculty and staff in
ways to improve the ease with
which people are able to
document what they arc doing
Clay said.
After James Hallock, the Dean
of the School of Medicine,
decided to implement the plan,
he wrote a general job description
and advertised the position, which
Clay applied for.
"Dr. Clay has great talent and a
good understanding of the
directions we need to take said
Hallock in a press release
regarding Clay's new position. "I
look for him to make significant
contributions in the area of
compliance and quality service
According to Clay, the School
of Medicine is still deciding
whether to put together an
internal staff or to use outside
consultants to comprise the rest of
the staff. They plan to add two
full-time auditors, a manager and a
secretary to the staff.
The office should be fully
operational by the end of the
current academic year. Clay will
be spending half his time on this
new position and the other half
continuing his practice in child
psychiatry.

U.S. Congress balks,
opposition nses over Iraq
WASHINGTON (AP) �
Opposition to bombing Iraq is
S'ning ground as the U.S.
ngress struggles over how far it
should go in supporting military
action. Catholics and Protestants,
former military and intelligence
officers,
longtime anti-war groups and
Arab Americans say air attacks
would do little more than kill
Iraqis.
Opponents are scattered across
the political spectrum. Some
insist the
bombing wouldn't go far
enough, including conservative
Republicans on
Capitol Hill who believe the
ultimate goal should be to remove
Saddam
Hussein from power.
Others fear a U.S. attack would
go too far, killing thousands of
innocent
Iraqi civilians, destroying
Mideast peace efforts, and
bypassing Congress in
making war on another nation
� all to punish the Iraqi
president.
Representative Lee Hamilton,
one of the capital's most
respected foreign
affairs voices, said he backs
Clinton's Iraqi policy but doesn't
think force
would diminish the threat of
Iraq's weapons or its ability to
threaten its
neighbors.
"The administration, I think,
has a very heavy responsibility now
to
articulate with very great
firecision what our purposes are in
raq
Hamilton told Secretary of
State Madeleine Albright.
To bolster support. President
Clinton plans a speech Tuesday at
Department of Defense
headquarters to make the case for
why the United States may launch
air strikes on suspected sites for
making chemical, biological and
nuclear weapons in Iraq, which
Saddam has ruled off limits to
U.N. inspectors. His foreign policy
team will hold town hall meetings
this week in Ohio and Tennessee,
too.
The one thing bombing
opponents and proponents have in
common with Clinton is
abhorrence of Saddam, who had
agreed after the 1991 Persian Gulf
War to allow U.N. inspections to
ensure he didn't rebuild his
nonconventional war machine.
Those feelings initially
translated into strong
congressional support for
Clinton. But support wavered
last week, with lawmakers raising
questions
about what an airstrike could
accomplish and at what cost. A
supportive
resolution was put off until
Congress returns from a break
next week.
A few members of Congress
strongly oppose Clinton's Iraq
policy.
Representative Ron Paul, a
conservative, last week introduced
emergency
legislation to stop Clinton from
using force in the Gulf.
"There is absolutely no moral
or constitutional reason to go to
war with
Iraq at this time said Paul, a
former U.S. Air Force flight
surgeon.

Cynthia McKinney, also asked on

With increased safety concerns due to the recent rape phenomena, attention is being
paid more and more to various safety precautions and practices to ensure fewer rapes and
assaults. The obvious safety practices, of course, are the buddy system, late-night escorts,
mace, pepper spray, tazer guns, vicious attack dogs, personal bodyguards, just saying "no"
and being male, but one safety practice in particular apparently needs reiterating.
Back in 1993, the residence halls implemented a 24-hour locking system that made it
impossible for nonresidents to enter unescorted. Before this safety measure, anybody
who wanted to could traipse freely through the halls of the dorms, thieving, raping,
pillaging, conquering and such, and these things did come to pass. It wasn't nice.
Students weren't the only ones freely roaming throughout other people's residences. The
occasional homeless person was found showering at his leisure from time to time.
Nowadays, even after the onset of this safety measure, people still enter the dorms
uninvited and walk about unescorted. This only happens because residents allow it to
happen. Residents hold the door for people after they've unlocked it and in go the
strangers, free to roam about and wreak havoc and disaster, steal your stereos and play
stations or get your sisters pregnant. That's really bad.
As campus residents, we have an obligation to uphold the practice of escorting our
guests and leaving the strays on the stoop. Ladies especially need to tighten up their
observation of the 24-hour locks. Too many sisters, girlfriends, nieces, daughters etc. have
been mistreated by intruders for us to continue this negligence. These are some things
you ought to be aware of as you go to enter your dorms: loiterers, the people who hang
around the courtesy phones as if an escort is on the way, and enter once you've got the
door open; saunterers, who pace around the dorms at a safe distance, waiting to calmly
follow a resident inside as if being escorted; Mad Dashers, those who bodily fling
themselves up the porch stairs to catch the auto-locking door before it shuts (mad
dashers are the worst of the three because you don't always see them until they're already
inside, kind of like cancer).
Exercise tact in these situations. Learn some high kicks and a few intimidating threats.
if you notice somebody waiting by an entrance for a resident to open the door, find
another entrance. If you happen to be followed up to your door, ask the follower what
business is to be had at your residence. Try, maybe, slipping in the door quickly so it'll
shut faster.
It's doubtful that the residence halls will feature loud, droning intruder alerts in the
future (which would be cool because we'd probably all get guns), but it's reasonable to
expect the next step might be 24-hour police surveillance posted beside a single main
entrance just like Halloween. And really, the thoughr of having to present your OneCard
and prove your residence each time you enter and exit while signing your guests in and
out just doesn't seem very homey. Be smart. Make people wait for their escorts.
LETTER
to the Editor
Consider rape punishment carefully
Although I usually enjoy Britt
Honeycutt's columns, I feel I must
respond to her Feb. 17 article
concerning castration for rapists.
First, before I go any further, I
must state that I in no way
condone or feel a need to protect
rapists. I won't pretend to know
what the ultimate punishment for
a rapist should be, so therefore, I
will not attempt to state a fair
punishment. What 1 do feel the
need to address is the rights of the
wrongly accused. Believe it or not,
there are individuals who are not
only falsely accused of rape, but
also wrongly convicted. Well, you
may say that there are a small
percentage, but believe me, for
those individuals it would be a
catastrophic mistake. Britt, you say
you don't believe in capital
punishment, but, like capital
punishment, once castration is
done, it is done. There is no
turning back. So, what do we tell
the wrongly convicted? Oops,
we're sorry, our mistake, now go on
with your life and, by the way,
here's some money to compensate
for your suffering.
Also in my reasoning, I would
like you to understand that there
are women who falsely accuse men
of rape to get even with them. If
castration were the sentence, to
them, this would be the ultimate
revenge. Just think of a young
college couple. After going out,
they have sex, then he tells her, "I
don't want to see you anymore. I'm
sleeping with your best friend
She is angry and goes to the police
and cries date rape. Do we castrate
him? Also, let me ask you this: Do
we castrate Mike Tyson because
he was convicted of rape, but not
castrate William Kennedy Smith
because he beat the rap? And
finally, you speak of women having
Emergency Home Castration Kits.
Did it ever occur to you that there
is a possibility that some women
may misuse this technology?
Before I go, I would like to set
the record straight; castration is
not the removal of the penis, but
the removal of the testicles. If
there are some that insist on
castration, then chemical
castration may be an option to
consider. Under a doctor's
supervision, medroxyprogesterone
acetate (depo provera) could be
administered to a convicted rapist;
this would bring the testosterone
level to almost nothing, which
would be the equivalent of
castration.
Again, let me say that I feel rape
is a horrific crime, but I also feel
that a greater crime would be the
mistaken castration of an innocent
individual.

Tobacco industry wrongly accused
The tobacco companies have
suffered enough, and their
rights have been completely
infringed upon. Whether or
not they are in the right or in
the wrong, there has to be a
cap on the lawsuits and the
money being doled out to any
"victim " of smoking.
Tobacco companies have
undergone the most scrutiny and
financial loss of any manufacturer
in recent history. The
controversies extend beyond legal
parameters into questions on the
moral responsibilities of
companies to consumers. Since
America tends to be hazy on
morals, the debates continue into
an indefinite black hole.
It has been established that
cigarettes are bad for a smoker's
(and in some cases, a non-
smoker's) general health. So, to
discourage people from hurting
themselves, the president has
pushed and legislators have passed
laws to deter the use of cigarettes
by raising the tobacco tax, limiting
smoking areas, banning cigarette
vending machines and enforcing
the policy that prohibits minors
from buying tobacco products.
The attempts to dissuade
smoking are well-intended, and in
an ideal world they might actually
work. Our world though, is far
from ideal so wc need to use
realistic solutions to solve the
problems that face us�assuming
smoking is one of them. Raising
the taxes on tobacco doesn't bring
its intended result. Instead, it
destroys our local and national
economies and increases the
production and sale of cigarettes
by foreign manufacturers who have
less regulation and disclosure
responsibilities than America.
It would be foolish these days
to deny the detrimental effects of
smoking. It's right on the package
� no secrets � it's in black and
white. So why are people suing for
something they did to themselves
in full knowledge of the risks?
Why punish the tobacco
companies? The smokers played
Russian Roulette with their health
and lost. Instead of admitting
personal fault, they have decided
to clog the legal system with their
obvious admittance of sheer
stupidity.
The tobacco companies have
suffered enough, and their rights
have been completely infringed
upon. Whether or not they are in
the right or in the wrong, there has
to be a cap on the lawsuits and the
money being doled out to any
"victim" of smoking. If that wasn't
enough, the censorship of tobacco
advertising is a blatant violation of
the first amendment. It doesn't
matter what they want to print or
televise they have the right to do
it. That is not a new concept.
The government has obviously
overextended its role and allowed
the madness to escalate. Our
government was founded on the
ideals in The Second TreOise of Civil
Government written by John Locke
in 1689. In this treatise, he states
the only duty of government is to
protect citizens from force or fraud
by other individuals or institutions.
Did the tobacco companies force
anyone to smoke? No. Did
tobacco companies defraud the
consumers? No. Yet, tobacco
companies are being forced to pay
for others mistakes.
Smoking is not the first and
foremost social or moral ill of our
society yet it is being treated as if
it were the Black Plague. Tobacco
has obvious downsides in which we
are all aware. Stifling smoking in
America is virtually impossible. If
the threat of death doesn't
discourage smoking than I
seriously doubt the measures now
imposed will have any marked
effect. It is the responsibility of
the individual � not the
government to decide what should
be inhaled.

Crime on the rise around campus
Crime is inevitable; I just do
not want it on my front
door Thirty minutes of
waiting is a long time to
wonder what would have
happened if you lived in a
nicer neighborhood. Would
the police respond quicker?
According to the incumbents in
last years city council elections,
crime was down. According to real
facts, crime went up in 1997. The
statistics do not tell us where the
crimes were occurring.
Where the crime is happening
is more important to me than how
much. If burglaries are happening
across town, sure I am concerned,
but not as much as if it happened
down the street.
I have started to notice a trend.
Every time I pick up the paper,
whether it is 7" East Carolinian or
The Greenville Reflector, crime
reports for the area surrounding
ECU appear to be on the rise.
Let me point out crime
'appears' to be on the rise. I do not

Ani DiFranco
Little Plastic Castle
8 OUT OF 10
John Davis
ASSISTANT LIFESTYLE EDITOR
Folks keep crossing the fine line
between poetry and pop music.
"Folk" musicians are notorious for
it. Just ask Bob Dylan. Like Dylan,
Ani DiFranco is a consummate
lyricist; like Dylan, she wavers back
and forth between protest songs
and more intimate explorations.
Little Plastic Castle is DiFranco's
first studio album in several years.
Her last album, Living in Clip, a two-
disc live set, showcased DiFranc in
her strongest element: her live
performances. That album
glistened with spiritual, energetic
performances tinged with the
strange psychosis of the young,
talented and suburban. DiFranco
has often commented that she's
never been happy with her studio
albums, hence the live album.
living in Clip brought DiFranco
much critical and media attention;
she toured with Dylan, made
appearances on Conan O'Brien and
PBS's Sessions on 54th St.
After an act like that, IJttle Plastir
Castle has large shoes to fill. For the
most part, it fills them well, but the
sharp contrast between Living in Clip
and Little Plastic Castle is all too
apparent at times.

One hour north of Charlotte lies
Faith, NC, home of rockers
Mercury Dime. There's a whole lot
of Faith and "faith" all over the
group's new album, Darkling.
Produced and mixed by famed
R.E.M. producer Mitch Easter at
his Kernersville studio, The
Fidelitorium, Darkling is the group's
first effort for Chapel Hill indie
label Yep-Roc Records. Opry Fried
Hank released Mercury Dime's
acclaimed 1996 debut.
You don't have to get too far into
Darkling taken from Keats' "Ode To
a Nightingale to realize Easter's
influence on the band. That
"R.E.M. jangle" he captured to
perfection on the boys from
Athens' early efforts is heard
throughout.
And then there's the voice of
lead singer and pianist Cliff
Retallick. It's a dead ringer for of
Mikey Stipe. You know, that nasal
voice that sounds like he's pinching
his nose to go under water for a
quick swim. It's a great voice,
perfect for sounding theatrical and
powerfully dead serious when
singing incoherent lyrics. You, the
listener, are left thinking, "I don't
know what the hell Stipe just sang,
hut by the sound of his voice, it
sure must be durned meaningful
Retallick, who wrote the lyrics
for all the album's songs,
sometimes strays (unsuccessfully)
into Stipe territory with his
verbiage as well. Take for example,

Adoption lecture puts new face on motherhood
Backus presents lecture
Monday in GC
M i c c a h Smith
SENIOR WRITER
Adoption, with the implications
that surround it in American
society is a complicated and often
anguished process for everyone
involved. Motherhood becomes
mixed up with ownership rights,
children's best interests are
disregarded, and while society tries
to convince itself that the "ioving
option" brings the most beneficial
outcome at all times, such is not
always the case.
Professor Margot Gayle Backus
of St. John Fisher College in
Rochester, New York, will address
the delicate personal issues of
adoption during her guest lecture
on Monday, February 23. The
presentation, entitled "I'm your
mother; she was a carrying case is
based on Backus' interpretation of
Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, a
novel by contemporary British
novelist Jeanette Winterson.
The novel is a semi-
autobiographical tale of a girl
whose adoptive mother is a harsh
Pentecostal Evangelical Christian,
and the lecture's title is actually a
statement she makes in the book.
Backus' experiences as the
adopted child of dysfunctional
parents gave her a keen connection
to the story, and her desire is that
more people realize "the way
society thinks about children,
about childhoodthe narratives,
the stories we tell each other in
this society according to ECU
English professor Dr. Lillian
Robinson.
Backus believes that one of the
major problems with adoption is
that the placement of children in
particular families which are
determined by society to be "good
families" is often accorded deeper
significance and importance than
the actual well-being of the
adopted children. Cited as victims
of the judicial rulings based on
such ancient stereotypes are a gav
male couple forced to give up their
adopted child in 1980.
Consequently, Backus calls for a
reshaping of traditional views of
"natural" and "normal" families in
relation to adoption and fosterage.
She wants to encourage thought
about familial placements and the
consequences on the children who
live with adoptive parents.
Backus, who received her Ph.D.
in English from the University of
Texas, has published on several
feminist and literary topics in
journals such as Cultural Studies,
Victorian Literature and Culture,
SIGNS: Journal of Women in Culture
and Society, Journal of Homosexuality
and The Canadian Review of
Comparative Literature.
Her forthcoming book, The
Gothic Family Romance: Compulsory
Heterosexuality in the Anglo-Irish
Settler Colonial Order, will be
published by Duke University
Press.
The free lecture and discussion
will be held at 4 p.m. in Room 2014
of the General Classroom Building
and all are invited. A reception will
follow in the English Department
Faculty Lounge in Room 2136.

Hong Kong movies
earn less in 1997
HONG KONG (AP) Thanks to
Jackie Chan, John Woo and others.
Hong Kong's star is rising in
Hollywood. But back home its
movie industry has lost some kick.
Until 1997, Hong Kong was the
world's third-largest movie maker
behind Hollywood and India. But
last year, the territory famed for
Bruce Lee and shoot "em up
action thrillers produced just 90
films, down from more than 200 in
1994.
To cap a mixed year, Hong
Kong movies also earned less.
They accounted for just over 50
percent of the 1.16 billion Hong
Kong dollars (dlrs 148.7 million)
and the star of A Better
Tomorrowhas just made his
Hollywood debut in Columbia
Picture's The Replacement Killers
With stars and directors
working abroad, some Hong Kong
movies are having trouble getting
funding, said Freddie Wong, a
Hong Kong film distributor.
"Investors are less willing to
invest in lesser-known directors
he said.
Hong Kong also has quality
problems. Many movies have
similar plots, with similar
characters, similar stars, in similar
locations. Some moviegoers have,
understandably, had enough.

Peasants
PaT REII)
SENIOR WRITER
From the not-so-distant city of
Richmond, Virginia comes Agents of
Good Roots, the latest in a string of
funky, brass-injected bands hoping
to make it big. The Agents have
made a name for themselves in the
local arena by years of hard work and
touring, and more recently they
have received exposure on a national
level as their live shows have spread
to Colorado and beyond.
With their major label debut, One
By One, hitting stores March 24, the
band is playing scattered dates in
the next few weeks preparing
people for the album. They come to
Greenville on Friday when the band
plays a benefit show at Pantana
Bob's. Recently drummer Brian
Jones called our office to touch base
and share a little insight into where
the Agents come from and where
they hope to be headed.
TEC: "How did you guys
originally get together?"
Jones: "We met in Richmond
about four or five years ago. I was
playing in a band with his (Andrew
Winn-lead guitarist) brother.
.Andrew would show up and play
guitar in the band every now and
then. I could tell that he was serious
about music and I was too, so we
decided to get a band together,
write some songs, do all original
material, and things just kind of
happened from there. Different
musicians came in and out, and he
brought in the bass player Stuart
Myers that he grew up with in
Roanoke, Virginia. I came up with
the idea of bringing in a saxophone,
maybe change up the sound a little
bit. . .little did I know there was a
band called Dave Matthews that
had already decided to do that, but
anyways. . .We've been touring for
about two-and-a-half years now non-
stop once we got serious at a certain
point
TEC: "Since you brought up the
whole Dave Matthews thing, do you
fear that with the current trends in
music you'll be written off as trend-
hopping?"
Jones: "Maybe, but it's not the
case. That would be the simpleton's
answer. But I don't really fear that
because with the new record that's
coming out, and if anyone has seen
us live, it's a totally different ball of
wax
TEC: "Who were some of your
early influences?" "
Jones: "Me, personally, I'm
coming from a jazz background.
Right now I'm listening to more of
the modern schoollike a band
called Human Fieldwhen I was
younger, though, I liked all the rock
like Zeppelin, John Bonham on
drums. As I got into college, I
started getting into more like Elvin
Jones, Paul Motion, some of these
other drummers that were playing
more creative music
TEC: "Are those the band's
influences as a whole?"
Jones: "No, we're from very
much different areas. Andrew is a

1997, down from 70 percent three
years ago.
The financial turmoil hitting
Southeast Asian countries since
last summer will probably deal
Hong Kong movies another blow,
since they were big markets for
Hong Kong productions.
In some ways, Hong Kong has
been a victim of its own success.
Its movie industry boomed in the
mid-1980s, producing hits that
piqued Hollywood's interest and
led to Hong Kong talents being
lured overseas.
Director John Woo, for
instance, went to make Broken
Arrow and FaceOff, having
achieved near-cult status with his
Hong Kong-made thrillers A Better
Tomorrow and Hard Boiled.
Chow Yun-Fat, arguably Hong
Kong's coolest gun-toting actor
'Hong Kong films are too
boring said moviegoer Tim
Chan, lining up to see The
Replacement Killers.
Hollywood productions are
far more professional. They have
the money and the technology
he said.
But not all the news is bad.
Jackie Chan's Mr. Nice Guy made
45.4 million Hong Kong dollars
(U.S. dlrs 5.8 million) at Hong
Kong box offices last year, second
only to Universal's The Lost World:
Jurassic Park.
And Wong Kar-wai's Happy
Together won Hong Kong's first
Palme D'Or prize at Cannes.

shies away from interfering in
commerce. Hong Kong's

It's always a pleasure to see a
low-budget film that doesn't require
apologies. I like bottom-feeder
cinema, mind you, films that don't
cost much and can therefore afford
to take risks. But as a reviewer, I get
tired of praising films with critiques
like, "If you can ignore the low-rent
effects or "Keeping in mind that
they couldn't afford real actors
Well, there won't be any of that
here, because today I'm reviewing
first-time director Salvatore Sabile's
Gravesend, and I've seldom seen a
finer low-budget production. In
Hollywood sales pitch terminology,
it's Kids meets Reservoir Dogs. In
critic-speak, Gravesend shows the
meaninglessness of the lives of
inner-city teens, with a smattering
of violence and snappy dialogue
thrown in for good measure. Or in
plain English, it's the sordid tale of
four high school kids in the town of
Gravesend, New Jersey, who
accidentally shoot somebody one
night and try to ditch the body.
If that sounds grisly, it is.
Gravesend is ugly in places, as any
film about lugging a dead body
around in the trunk of a car should
be. But it's pretty funny too, as any
film about lugging a dead body
around in the trunk of a car should
also be.
A lot of that humor lies in the
characters. Zane, Chicken, Ray and
Mikey (our "heroes") are typical 17-
year-old lame brains. They hang
out, give each other a hard time and
pick fights to alleviate boredom.
Zane, in particular, seems to enjoy
fighting. So it's no big surprise that
he's the one who whips out the gun
and, not realizing that it's loaded,
shoots Ray's brother in the neck.
His friends' reaction to this is
what makes the movie so
engrossing. Though they freak out
at first, once Zane starts laying
plans to incinerate the body, they
calm down and go along with him.
They're obviously shaken, but they
Dry to hide it behind false bravado.
With the psychological damage
they've just taken still bubbling
under the surface, they hit the
streets with a corpse in the trunk
and try to act like nothing has
happened.
It's at this point that we realize

The East Carolinian
Spade shines on Just Shoot Me Mice capture fugitive elephant
LOS ANGELES (AP) Any
creator of television sitcoms will
tell you that a major element of a
hit show is a cast of accomplished
second bananas targets for stars to
bounce their jokes off.
Laura San Giacomo and George
Segal take top billing of the NBC
Tuesday night sitcom Just
Shoot Me, playing fairly
normal characters.
He is publisher of Blush,
a Cosmo-type women's
magazine, and she, his
daughter, works there.
They are supported by
Wendie Malick as a man-
hungry ex-model, Enrico
Colantoni as a lascivious
photographer, and David
Spade as a devious assistant
to the publisher.
Spade, whose floppy
blond hair and boyish face
disguise a wicked wit, came
to Just Shoot Me with ideal
credentials.
He survived the rough
and tumble of the standup
comedy circuit. He played
on the prime showcase for a
generation of comedians,
Saturday Night Live.
And he appeared in
successful feature films with
the late Chris Farley
including Tommy Boy and
Black Sheep.
But the sitcom world was
little-known to Spade,
whose one experience was a
pilot that spun
unsuccessfully from The Facts of
Life.
SN1 don't know how to sitcom-
act, and I'm kind of glad he said.
"It's cringe time when I watch
other shows. They just don't seem
funny to me.
Spade did a lot of groundwork,
eight years of performing standup
comedy all over the country; before
landing a steady job on Saturday
Night Live.
' "What I didn't realize was that
they didn't want me to be on the
show; they wanted me to write
he recalled by phone from his
home in Arizona. But considering
himself more effective as a
performer, not a writer, he worked
for three years trying to get in front
of the camera while getting
"pretty good" at writing
sketches. He identified himself
'x a featured player longer than
anyone there ever
He watched as other comics
became stars, but often they had
individual hooks" that were hard
to maintain. Seeking career
longevity, he kept looking at
people like Jerry Seinfeld and
Garry Shandling.
v v They make money,
they're consistently funny,
but they're never quite the
topic of conversation he
said. "Eventually they
have a nice, long career
where they score over and
over
During his six years on
SNL, Spade became close
friends with fellow cast
member Farley. The movie
Tommy Boy evolved from
that collaboration.
Producer Lome Michael
saw the pair always fooling
around, making fun of each
other, and as Spade
suggested.
He thought we should
do something with that
type of relationship. He
had a movie written for us
Farley's recent death from a
drug overdose hit Spade
hard. To him, the
comedian's self-
destructiveness seemed
long-term and deep-
rooted. ' He was
already superstitious,
drinking. All the
craziness was there
Spade said. I don't
think it started in show biz. That
just worsened what was already
there
DiFranco
continued from page 6
The most striking inconsistency
is the title track. For some reason,
DiFranco felt the need to pepper
an otherwise strong acoustic rock
song with ska-influenced horn
arrangements. The song, which
focuses on the politics of image,
can't quite reconcile the silliness of
the horns and the seriousness of
the subject matter.
Not that Ani isn't allowed to
have her tongue in her cheek, but
she's usually a better songwriter
when she's less obtuse. After
"Little Plastic Castle we get
"Fuel a trademark DiFranco
spoken word which is actually
pretty darn cool, but out of place so
early on the album. Then a new
version of "Gravel recorded on
the Dilate tour and included on
Livingin Clip pokes its head in and,
well, it ain't a purty sight
"Gravel as a live performance,
is probably one of Di Franco's best
songs. The version on Iking in (Tip
is Ani at her strum-strutting,
ambiguously direct, angrily in love
best. The version on Little Plastic
Castle is a watered-down,
studiofied, TV-dinner version, and
it is this track, more than any other,
that hurts from the contrast
between the two albums.
Happily, after "Gravel the
album takes a turn for the better.
Ani is best when she's not
pontificating; her introspective
examinations of the strong but
neurotic white girl in the mirror are
her best and most powerful songs.
It seems to be much easier for Ani
to express her emotions when she's
dealing with the personal themes.
"As Is "Loom "Two Little
Girls" and "Swan Dive" are some of
Ani's best studio recordings.
"Pulse" is dark and hauntingly
beautiful. Part of this has to do with
the fact that her live band, Andy
Stochansky and Jason Mercer, back
her up in the studio. The chemistry
from her live shows is evident in
these songs.
As always, Ani shines in the lyric
department. Even when she's
making political statements, she's
clever enough not to sink into
soapbox proclamations. Instead,
she keeps an edge to her
observations: "All the privileged
white kids on tv playing at death
btandishing their cold cuts with
their ghostly make up and their
heroin breath and all the fishes are
flapping wildlyon their hooks
while all the top critics find great
meaningin the telephone book
Ani's the queen of the short,
strong lines as well: "I don't care if
they eat me alive I've got bettet
things to do than survive "I guess
I'll just stand here with my back
against the wall while you distill
your life down to a 911 call
In spite of its shaky beginning,
IJttle Plastic Castle snaps back in the
end; tracks 4-12 are, at their best,
some of Ani's strongest work and at
their worst, classic Ani
compositions. Besides, you've got
to hand it to the girl who's
managed to keep her heart on her
sleeve for most of the 90's and is
still alive to sing about it.
MENTOR, Ohio (AP) Police in
this northeast Ohio city have chased
fleeing felons before, but this time
the fugitive was a 6-foot-6, two-ton
elephant.
"I've been here for 17 years,
and it's the first time we've had an
elephant on the loose said police
Sgt. Kevin Knight.
On Sunday, police had the task of
capturing Tonya, an elephant that
escaped from a circus performance
at Mentot High School.
Police chased the runaway
elephant in squad cars and on foot
after she panicked in a hallway-
inside the high school and ran off

No one was hurt in Tonya's bid
for freedom. She knocked assistant
trainer Nick Tolomeo to the ground
before opening a door with her
trunk and fleeing the building, but
he did not require medical
attention.
Tonya's trainers and volunteers
joined in the chase as she galloped a
quarter mile through open areas
before stopping outside a Big Lots
store in this city about 25 miles east
of Cleveland.
That was where her trainer
caught up with het and persuaded
her to get into his truck.
Bret Bronson, Tonya's trainer,
said Tonya panicked after another
elephant was startled by a clown
and bumped into her. The othet
elephant squeezed Tonya against a

She was just like a child lost in

said.
"She was in a real tight area,

Most of the 2,900 people who
were watching the circus
performance were not aware of
Tonva's adventure.

Mercury Dime gives us a good all

course, it's not always original. But
Retallick gives us his emotion,
which is very much his own, which
he's trying to handle, trying to keep
the faith.

the talent he brought to
ECU't football program.
Since graduation, he has
gone on to play in the CFL
and if residing in Greenville
for the off-season, (flight)
Crandell is remembered
moat for the outstanding
plays he made on Pirate
fields, such as this one.
photo by Jonathan green
Wguy anyway? You know, the c
whose name will go down in the
books forever as one
of the greatest
football players ECU
has ever known?
Quarterback Marcus
Crandell was never
one to boast and brag
about his
accomplishments.
The 1997 graduate
valued his
teamnates, coaches,
and his committment
to the team more
than anything else,
even when his face
was shown across the
nation on television.
"I am not going to try
to prove anything in front of a national
television audience. I am going to win and
play my heart out for myself, my teammates,
and my coaches Crandell said prior to the
Oct. 10, 1996 game against Southern
Mississippi, scheduled to be aired on
ESPN2.
Finishing his college career ranked
number one on ECU's list for career passing
yards7,198), total offense (7,641), and
touchdown passes (56), Crandell's
accomplishments go above and beyond that
of the average student athlete. He led the
Pirates to two consecutive bowl appearances
in 1994 and 1995 and ranked in the top 10
nationally in total offense for his sophomore
and junior seasons.
After graduation, Crandell decided that
his time on the field was not complete, and
with that, worked his way into the CFUs
Edmonton Eskimos program. According to
Crandell, playing in the CFL is a completely
different ball game then the one he played in
college.
"I didn't really know what to expect going
in, but once I got there, I found that I like
playing in college better Crandell said.
During the off-season, Crandell is
spending his time back in Greenville. A
native of Robersonviile, N.C Crandell said
that one of the biggest sacrifices he has been
forced to make is being so far away from his
family and friends.
"As long as my family is still here in North
Carolina, Twill be coming back here when I
am not playing Crandell said. "The team is
a really nice organization but it is so far away.
I did hot come home once from the time I
left up until the middle of November
Aside from family and college friends,
another person that provided support in
tougher times was ECU head football coach
Steve Logan.
"Coach Logan was definitely there for me
through my hard times Crandell. "We
talked about once a week on the phone, and
since I came back to Greenville, I have been
up to his office to visit quite a bit
Crandell sees the upcoming season in the
CFL as one for learning, and hopes to find
more play time in 1998. An NFL hopeful, he
has thought about coaching football in the
future, but for now, his main concern is
finishing his education in information
processing
"It would be great to coach, but that is
something that is a long time away Crandell
said.
Unfortunately, Crandell was not able to
catch much ECU football action last season
because the television channels in Canada
did not air any of the games. The only game
he did get to see was the Wist Virginia game,
caught on tape and sent his way by his sister.
"I didn't get to see the games, but I made
sure that I called every week to get the
scores Crandell said.
With much to look back on and even more
to look forward to, Crandell realizes that as
great as his college career was, the time has
come to move on.
"Playing in college was actually more fun,
and was a much more exciting atmosphere
Crandell said. "Playing in the CFL is fun too,
it is just a whole lot different from what I
knew in college

On Feb. 13-15, the ECU baseball
team played three games against
the Clemson Tigers, who are
ranked 16th in the nation on the
Collegiate Baseball poll.
The Pirates won the opener of
the three game set, 6-1, and
dropped the second and third
games by scores of 16-4 and 8-2
respectively. In the first game,
junior left fielder Steve Salargo
Erovided some of the offense
ringing in 2 RBI's. Junior Antaine
Jones also had a good day at the
plate going 2 for 4 with one RBI
and two runs scored.
The pitching duo of junior
Brooks Jemigan and senior John
Payne combined to hold the
Tigers to one run. ftryne, who
pitched 3 23 innings in relief,
gave up that run in the bottom of
the ninth inning. Jemigan started
the game and gave up six hits over
5 13 innings while striking out
four.
"I saw positive things when we
put it all together ECU head
coach Keith LeClair said of
Friday's win.
Unfortunately, Saturday's game
was not so strong for the Pirates.
ECU pitchers were stung for 17
hits, which yielded 16 runs for
Clemson. Senior Brain Fields was
saddled with the loss
while giving up
seven hits and five
earned runs in 2 23
innings pitched.
Antaine Jones again
led the Pirates from
the plate, belting his
first home run of the
season. He finished
the game 2-4 with
three RBI's and two
runs scored.
"Antaine Jones is
off to a good start
LeClair said.
In the final game
of the set, the Pirates
were limited to six
hits. One of which
was a two-run home
run by senior Billy
Benson. Third
baseman Chris
Shaffer had a good
day at the plate going
2-4, but the Pirate
pitchers were hurt for
a total of eight runs.
Bill Outlaw, a junior, started
and threw for four innings, giving
up five runs on seven hits in the
losing effort. Three other pitchers
took the hill for ECU, each giving
up one earned run apiece.
"We have not played our best
baseball yet Coach LeClair said.
"We have to hit and pitch better.
Defense has been our strength
ECU has committed only two
errors through their first four
games.

U.S. wrestlers, including
one from Michigan,
arrive in Iran
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) � From a
distance, an American flag painted
on the wall of a tall government
building in Tehran looks like it
could be welcoming a
Michiganian and other members
of the U.S. wrestling team, the
most prominent group of
Americans to visit Iran since its
1979 revolution. But a closer look
reveals skulls in place of stars, and
the red streaks of falling bombs in
place of stripes. "We will never
make up with the United States
even for a moment says an
inscription underneath,
summarizing nearly two decades
of hostility between Iran and a
country still known to many here
as the Great Satan.
That resolve is one face of
Iran's Islamic Republic, set up
after the revolution ousted the
Ubacked shah. The other; of
relative tolerance, comes from
Iran's moderate president and
those who invited the team.
As they arrived at Tehran's
airport early Tuesday, the
American wrestlers were greeted
by Mohammed Reza Taleqani,
deputy chairman of the Iranian
wrestling federation. 'The only
thing I care about is wrestling,
Taleqani said.

Former Cowboy coach in
court for assault case
DALLAS (AP)� Former
Cowboys coach Barry Switzer was
back in Dallas Monday for a
pretrial hearing in a civil lawsuit
pending against him.
Two men accuse Switzer of
making racial slurs to them at
Dallas' Melrose
Hotel in 1994. One alleges
Switzer of assaulting him in a
drunken rage.
Switzer, who resigned as
Cowboys coach last month, has
denied the allegations. His lawyer,
Brad Gahn, called the lawsuit
frivolous and said the plaintiffs are
targeting Switzer because he's a
celebrity.

Man killed in Superior a
Husker Hall of Famer
SUPERIOR, Neb. (AP) � A man
struck by a car and killed here was
a former Superior High School
teacher and a member of the
Nebraska Football Hall of Fame.
Thomas L. Lee Penney, 88,
played for the Cornhuskers from
1931-33 under Coach DX Bible.
He was a letterman and two-time
choice for the All-Big Six team.
He was inducted into the Hall of
Fame in 1994.
A sports enthusiast to the end,
Penney had joined his wife, Elsie,
in cheering the Superior
basketball teams to victory over
Southern Valley High School
Saturday night.
He was hit by a car while
crossing a street outside the high
school after the last game ended,
said Officer Gary Blcvins of the
Superior Police Department. He
died carry Sunday morning.
Track teams fight rainy
conditions

lost practice time

SINIOl WtfTEl
El Nino has wreaked havoc on
the lower 48 states for the past
few months. The weather
condition caused by the
movement of warm water in the
Pacific has caused problems with
the planet's weather, the
country's agriculture and ECU's
track teams. The rain El Nino has
dumped on the east coast has
made training impossible and
caused lackluster performances
and disappointing finishes.
"Up to this week we've only
had two days of training in two
weeks. But we're hanging in
there said Head Men's Track
Coach Bill Carson.
The lack of meaningful
practice did not show in the the
men's team's performance two
weeks ago at the Bill Cosby
Invitational in Reno, Nevada.
The team posted two third place
finishes. Sophomore sprinter,
Ramondo North, finished third in
the 55 meter dash. North shaved

University of California at Santa

On Feb. 21-22, the Irates will
travel to rival Wilmington to
compete with some of the top
ultimate frisbee teams in the
nation.
"If everyone on the team can
stay healthy and give it their all,
then we're going to be very
successful freshman Irate Dan
Bjorkman said.
nearly two-tenths of a second off
his previous weeks performance,
with a time of 7.4 seconds. The
4x400 relay team got their NCAA
provisional qualifying time, but
was given a third place finish.
"We ran in Reno purely on
emotion Carson said. "When we
had a chance to do something, we
didn't
The Pirates also had 10th place
finishes by Marcus Gladden in
the 200 and Darrick Ingram in the
400.
The Pirates' lack of practice
didn't slow them down in Reno,
but it caused disaster at last
weekend's meets.
"It was the worst meet we've
had in five years Carson said.
The UNC Invitational in
Chapel Hill saw only two Pirates
reach the finals in their respective
events. Tremaync Nunley was
disqualified in the 60 meter
hurdles and never got to race due
to a bad start. The other, Britt
Cox in the 60 meter dash, ran his
season best time of 6.98 seconds
en route to a seventh place finish.
Eleven members of the team
went to the Frank Sevigne Husker
Invitational in Lincoln, Nebraska,
ten failed to make the finals. The
lone finalist was Ramondo North
in the 200 meter dash. In the
finals North managed a fourth
place finish despite stumbling in
the tight turns of the Nebraska
track.
Losing practice time hurt the
team, officials said.
"We can't bring back those two
weeks and we can't bring back
that experience Carson said.
The women's team's training
was also washed out by the bad
weather.
"The weather has really
prevented us from getting out
and sharpening our skills in in
things like the hurdles and the
jumps said Head Women's Track
Coach Charles "Choo" Justice.
Undaunted, however, they
split up and went to both the
UNC Invitational and the Virginia
Tech Invitational. Junior Nicky
Goins led the Lady Pirates
finishing 12th in the 60 meter
dash and 10th in the 200 meters.
Marshari Williams qualified for
the finals in the 60 meter high
hurdles, finishing 15th with a
time of 8.97 seconds.
Both Goins and Williams had
the best times of the season in
their respective events, but they
were not alone. Season bests were
set by Lauren Chadwick in the
400, Becky Testa in the 800,
Robin Bates in the mile, Crystal
Frye and Eva Eiroma in the shot
put and the 4x400 meter relay
team.
Club rugby has also been very
active and successful. Last year the
rugby team was runner-up in the
state playoffs, and currently they
are undefeated in the 1998 Spring
season. With just two more
conference wins, the team will
advance to the southern regiunals,
whi h could qualify them for the
national tournament. On March 2,
ECU rugby will host Duke as well
as Cherry Point on April 4.
After losing seven seniors last
year, the men's lacrosse team
planned for a year of rebuilding.
But after a 10-5 win over N.C.
State, they proved to be top
contenders once again. Last spring
the club lacrosse team finished
eighth in the national tournament.
This weekend they will travel to
Atlanta to face Georgia Tech,
Illinois, Clemson and N.C. State.
Club sports can only work with
the participation of ECU students,
faculty and staff. With many
athleces leaving the team after
graduating, new members are
always welcome. Most of these
clubs are free of charge or at a
minimal cost to students. And if
you aren't the athletic type,
support for these hardworking
athletes is always appreciated. So
come out to the games and see
what club sports at ECU is all
about.

ATTENTION: All currently enrolled students
Introducing
EAST CAROLINA'S AUTOMATED VOICE RESPONSE SYSTEM
Who will have access to AVRS?
Currently enrolled graduate, non-degree and undergraduate students are eligible to
register using the Automated Voice Response System during the registration period for
Summer Sessions and Fall Semester 1998 using the new telephonic system.
Do I have to use AVRS?
No. You may also register on-line in your major department, the Registrar's office, or any open terminal.
hen can I use AVRS?
Early Registration for Summer Session and Fall Semester of 1998 begins March 30, 1998, at 8:00 a.m. for on-line
registration and 10:00 a.m. for telephonic registration. Please check the SummerFall 1998 Schedule of Classes or
the ECU Home page for the allocation of registration days and all relevant times, dates, and deadlines.
What do I need to do before I can use AVRS?
V Take care of all obligations to the University. f w
V Obtain your Personal Identification Number (PIN). Without a PIN you cannot use the system.
V Obtain your Registration Code from your adviser during advising week (March 23- March 27). (Graduate
and non-degree students do not require a registration code.)
What is a PIN?
It's a "Personal Identification Number" (PIN) just exactly like the PIN you use at your bank for your Automatic Teller
Machine card. It is a four to eight digit number that you obtain over the Web.
To acquire a PIN, you must access STUDENT RECORDS & REGISTRATION on the ECU Home Page
(http:www.ecu.edu) On this page you will find STUDENT RECORDS which indicates that it requires entry of Student
ID and PIN. Instructions for choosing, activating, and using your PIN can be found here. You may select any four to
eight digit number. It is important to remember that if you choose any number less than eight digits you will have to
place zeros (0) in front of this number to make eight digits. You must use an eight digit number to access the
voice response system. (EXAMPLE: If your PIN number is 4321 then when you access the voice response system
you must enter 00004321.)
Upon successful selection of a PIN, an Activation Code will be mailed to your campus e-mail address. You must check
your e-mail to retrieve your activation code.
Do I have an Exchange E-mail account?
Every currently enrolled student has an ECU exchange e-mail account with the exception of those students who have filed a
non-disclosure form. Students that have filed this form with the Registrar's Office will not be able to obtain a PIN number and
therefore, will be unable to use the automated voice response system.
Your user-id should be your legal initials followed by the month and day of your birth. For example, the user-id for John
Quincy Public born on March 4 would be JPQ0304. Your password will be the last six (6) digits of your Social Security
Number. To access your account: You must use the web address: http:www.ecu.edueouexchmsg.htm.
Please follow the directions on this page. If you are using a personal system (as opposed to a public access lab) you are
encouraged to use POP or IMAP to retrieve your e-mail. Instructions for configuring POP or IMAP service can be found at the
following web ste:http:www.ecu.eduexchangepop.
If you have any problems or questions about your E-mail account, please go to Austin 208 for assistance or call 328-0077.
Questions?
If you have any questions, call the Registrar's Office at (919)-328-6524; Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
