UNC-CH approves computer requirement;
pressure rises for campus to follow suit
Incoming freshmen in
2000 must obtain
personal computers
Craig D. Ramey
SENIOR WRITER
UNC-Chape! Hill will require all
incoming freshmen to own a
personal computer beginning in the
year 2000. Students will have to buy
one privately or apply for financial
aid set aside exclusively for this new
program.
fk are hoping that students will
pay less than $2000 for a 64K to K
computer said Linwood Ritrcllc,
director of client services with
academic technology and networks.
An increasing need for
technological knowledge has been
the leading force behind this
campaign.
"This program is an attempt to
level the playing field Ritrcllc
said. "V are comprehensively
trying to put all of our faculty, staff
and students on the same level.
Given the role of
information and
technology in the
economy and most
jobs, getting us up
to speed is a must.
H
This new
program will not
result in a tuition
increase. UNC-
Chapel Hill may
receive some
grants from private
vendors for this
technology, but all
incoming students
will still be
expected to buy a
personal computer.
"Vfc are hoping
that these vendors
will allow students
to pay them back
for their computers
in installments
Ritrellc said.
Students will
have the option
of buying their
computer through student stores,
financial aid or low-interest loans
from private vendors.
Low prices and exclusive UNC-
Corinne Rathgaber and Brooke Toomey shop for a computer in Dowdy Student Stores. The possibility of ad
students being required to own a computer is an option the university is reviewing.
Chapel Hill computer services are
some of the gains expected from
proposed vendor contracts.
"We should fjc able to get
services like 1-800 numbers for
students who have questions

Campus Police suggest safety tips for students
Police say security
sound, yet safety
measures important
Nina m. Dry
staff wtrrra
There are 17,500 students who
consider ECU their home, with
5,000 plus living in the residence
halls. Even though officials say the
overall security of the campus is
sound. rhey still advise that safety
measures need to be ukexi by all
University Police Captain
Johnnie Umphlet and crime
prevention officer Sgt. LaFrancc
Davis have several suggestions on
what students can do to remain
safe.
Residence halls are home away
from home for many students.
They, above all places, needs to be
as safe as possible. Davis said the
best precaution is to be aware of
one's surroundings.
"They (students) must be safe
themselves and assume that no
one's going to do it for them
Davis said.
Some safety
precautions in the
residence halls include
keeping keys in a safe
place and never
loaning them to
anyone; not propping
the exterior doors open
even when you are
moving in or out; never
letting people into the
building that do not
live there or look
unfamiliar; making sure that the
exterior door closes securely when
going in and out of the building;
and most importantly, never leave
room doors unlocked.
"No one should ever leave their
doors unlocked� even to go to the
restroom Umphlet said. "It only
takes 30 seconds for someone to go
into another's room and steal
something
The officers warn that campus
"The campus
police department
is here to assist
you with safety
Johnnie Umphlet
University Police Captain
is open enough for anyone to walk
onto it, and both advise students
to be careful while walking alone
through campus, especially at
night.
"Always monitor the
area around you for any
suspicious activities
Umphlet said.
Other tips Umphlet
suggested were never
to use the ATM
machines.at night and
to always act on
intuition� if
something doesn't feel
quite right, it's usually
a person's instincts
giving off warning signals.
"If you have to walk home
alone, always take the road that is
well-lit and well-traveled
Umphlet said.
Another option would be to
acquire the assistance of the
student patrol.
"Never walk home alone at
night Davis said. "Utilize the
escort services that arc offered by
the ECU student patrol
From 5 p.m. to 2:30 a.m.
student patrol is out checking
exterior doors and escorting
students around campus. After
2:30 a.m the campus police takes
over.
Also around campus there arc
blue emergency lights (42 in total)
that ring directly to the campus
police department. Emergency
phones are found in various
locations around the open portions
of campus, located in the Jenkins
building, in all the elevators and on
all of the call boxes in front of each
residence hall.
The officers agree that a
person's guard can easily become
less sharp while having fun
downtown, but warn that students
should still be on the lookout.
"Watch what you are drinking
Umphlet said. "Never accept any
open or mixed drinks from a person
you don't know
Also, go downtown as a group-
there is safety in numbers; when
you go out, let a friend or

Alleged thief preys on unaware students' backpacks
Items reported missing
usually cash, textbook
MELANIE HACKWORTH
STAFF WRITER
Students around the Messick
theater arts and dance building have
recently become prey to the alleged
thieving of John Stanley Cobb.
Cobb allegedly stole backpacks
from in and around the building,
took out whatever was valuable and
threw the bags in the bushes.
Sgt. Joseph Horst of the ECU
police department is currently
investigating the robberies. In
addition to robberies from Messick,
Cobb is suspected of stealing a
laptop from the Health Science
Building, which is also a felony.
Cobb has been arrested by the
ECU police three separate times,
the last arrest relating to
suspicion of stealing the
laptop.
The first two times,
Cobb paid bond and was
released. Currently, Cobb
is being held in the Pitt
County Detention Center
for suspicion of a felony
robbery.
Right now, Cobb has six
misdemeanor charges and
one felony charge pending;
however, he already has a
prior arrest record.
Cobb, of 2006 Chestnut
St Greenville, is a
Caucasian male
approximately 42 years of
age, five feet eight inches
tall, of medium build, and
has blonde hair and blue
eyes. He claimed to the police that
he works for a restaurant company.
Cobb does not appear to be violent.
"We've ECU Police) had no
John
COURTESY
Horst said.
The exact nature
of the robberies is
unknown,
however Horst has
some theories.
"In my opinion,
the person doing
it is stealing the
book bag and
going through it
attempting to find
items they could
keep or sell and
then leaving the
bags in another
location Horst
said.
Victims of these
robberies report
missing mostly
cash and
textbooks.
Textbooks cannot be traced back to
the owner unless the owner has
some sort of identification in the
books.

ECU officials
discuss advantages,
disadvantages of plan
Craig D. Ramey
SENIOR WRfTER
ECU officials are discussing the
advantages and disadvantages of
requiring cither the entire student
body or specific disciplines to buy
personal computers
"The plan has
been talked
about very
informally said
Jeff Huskamp,
chief information
officer. "We
(faculty and
administrators)
talk about
information and
technology
issues. Right now
we are in a fact

Although the
plan has not been
finalized with
dates or funds,
officials claim
t h
Officials have been trying to
balance the importance of future
technology with students and their
ability to finance personal
computers.
"Computer knowledge is a kind
of basic literacy said Darrell Davis,
dean of the School of Industry and
Technology. "I think before long we
will see costs cut in half.
Technology pricing and technology
types don t make the cost as big of a
burden as it would have been five
years ago. We will still have to help
students out. Maybe the prices will
be built into tuition. Right now
nothing is final. We are trying to
find the most cost effective
approach

advancement in
technology is an important part of
the university experience.
"This is necessary if graduates
are to be competitive in a world
where computers are used
everywhere Huskamp said.
"Computer knowledge gives
students a wider range of jobs to
choose from
One of the advantages that
would be felt campus-wide is the
possibility that students could
access work and turn in
assignments from home.
"Professors could do video
recordings of their class Huskamp
said. "Students could then access
the video from home. Teachers
could make course notes available
electronically. They could have on-
line office hours
Other methods of computer
payment are being discussed by the
committee.
"We don't want a financial
burden on students said Michael
Dorsey, dean of the School of An.
"We've been investigating lease and
payment plans as well as buying in
bulk
"Right now these discussions are
more discipline driven than global
(campus) driven Davis said.
"Architect students might have
one technological need that another
may not Huskamp said. "What do
you do about different
requirements?"
"Some disciplines would be-

Horst said. "That way, if the books

Horst does have some advice for
students on how to protect
themselves against robbery.
"Students should always be
aware of where their belongings
arc Horst said. "If at all possible,
they should keep their book bags
with them at all times and try not to
leave them unattended
Cobb is currently in jail, but if he
is released, he is banned from the
campus.
"If anyone were to see him on
campus, they should notify the

Cobb is not suspected to be

Recently TEC ran an article covering the sexual harrassment charges a high-ranking
university official faces. And we received some criticism for covering the story.
Dean of Students Ronald Speier is a well-loved, highly-regarded official. We expected a
little criticism and felt a little guilty about having to report the story.
But, whether we like the news or not, it is our job to report the news around campus.
It is not our job, however, to take sides on a news story in any space but here. We strive
for accurate, objective, unbiased reporting of a story; it can be hard for us sometimes. And
as we strive for this accurate reporting, we need cooperation from you, the university
community.
We're not saying we don't appreciate your comments � in fact, we encouarge them.
This is your newspaper, but our job is to report the news whether or not we � or you, our
readers � like what we're reporting. We don't make up the news; we report it.
We don't like what sources tell us sometimes. We don't like having a situation on
campus that mirrors one in the national news.
We don't like chasing an unpleasant story and hitting brick walls when no one wants to
talk about the story. We're just trying to do our jobs. Not commenting only makes our jobs
harder; we have to keep searching for someone who will talk to us so we can write a fair,
accurate account of an incident members of the university community need to know.
As reporters, we are not accusing anyone by asking questions. We are simply
disseminating important information, asking questions our readers would ask. And we
realize there may be questions our sources don't want to answer. We respect that. What
we don't respect is when the source avoids returning phone calls � even if it is to say
"no comment" � or when a source acts rudeh
We expect constructive criticism when our readers feel our reporting is not fair, factual,
or objective. We expect angry people to call when "no comment appears in print. We
expect criticism when we cover story like the one involving the charges Speier faces. We
don't like it when people criticize us when we cover a story; after all, we're only doing our
jobs, trying to present news you need to know in a factual report.
But remember, we're reporting facts � facts we may not even like. Let us know when
we're not being fair, factual or objective; complain that an allegation may be unfounded,
but don't blame us for reporting the facts. We're only doing our jobs.
LETTER
to the editor
African-American studies needed
This is in response to Aaron
Pollack's letter to the editor on
Feb. 10. The personal attack on
Keith Cooper was unnecessary.
Whether or not I agree with
Cooper, there is a tactful way to
approach any subject. The
response from Pollack affirms my
belief that an African-American
studies program is necessary at
ECU. The question is not whose
ancestors suffered more. It is
about a person's right to express
hisher opinion.
The notion that Cooper is
feeding racist feelings on campus
is riducuious. On the one hand,
you question whether racism
actually exists. Then, you say that
he is feeding racist feelings.
There is racism everywhere and
racists fuel that institution. The
mere fact that we arc college
students should show how we can
actively dialogue about our
differences of opinions on various
subjects without anger.
I think that if we want to be
called African-Americans, that is
our right to do so. We have no
problems acknowledging our
ancestral roots. If you want to be
called Jewish-American that is
your preference. The problems
plaguing America today have
nothing to do with what a person
identifies hisher race as. There
are more universal problems such
as crime, poverty, homelessness
and education that cross all racial
boundaries. The mere fact that
some students do not understand
the need for us to call ourselves
African-Americans shows the
need for an addition to our
curriculum for this benefit.
In conclusion, the debate
should not mar the true
intentions of Black History
Month. With an undying passion,
Carter G. Wbodson fought r6 get a
month to showcase the
accomplishments of African-
Americans in our society. This
month has been influential in
teaching many of us facts about
black inventors, politicians,
historians and heroes. Without
Black History Month, many
students would never learn the
accomplishments and
contributions African-Americans
have made to society. While I
celebrate Black History Month
365 days a year, it is pleasant to
see 28 days that the nation says
thank you and spotlights people
who were long forgotten in our
current American History texts.

Should the United States
take action against Saddam
Opinion columnist
Marvelle Sullivan:
YES
The Iraq situation has seemingly
come to a breaking point, finally.
It shouldn't be too long now until
the agreements are finalized. The
controversies that swirled around
this international drama are
numerous. There are people on all
sides of the issues; some fear
another Vietnam nightmare while
others fear the rise of a other
Adolf Hitler or Mao Tse-Tung.
It is clear that the United
States had definite reasons to act
as it did by sending forces to the
Middle East. Hussein signed a
pact to give inspectors "full, free,
and unfettered rights to inspect
for an indefinite amount of time.
So, not surprisingly, this madman,
who has used chemical warfare
before, invaded countries, fought
with us, not to mention his
countless threats does not want to
let anyone look to see what he is
manufacturing and storing.
Hmmmsounds suspicious to
meI don't think anyone should
soundly believe that Saddam is
following all the agreements but
just doesn't want inspectors to
affirm that he indeed is or that he
has no weapons that pose a real
threat to the United States. The
fact is we don't know � and
obviously he doesn't want anyone
to know. Since Hussein is crazy
and has no moral conscience, we
have reason to be in the Middle
East so that we may protect
ourselves and restrain any rash
actions. Plus, someone has to
enforce pacts made after wars or
there would be massive chaos.
Foreign countries' opposition to
U.S. plans have made various
people dubious and unconfident
of our actions. Let's take a
fiimpsc at the opposition. Russia,
t is very apparent that this
unstable country is wanting to
regain its dominance on the worid
stage. Russia is very serious about
collecting what is owed by Iraq.
Moreover, Russia could care less
about stability, they cannot lose
what they do not possess. The
next opposing country is China.
China would do anything to thwart
our plans. It is a powerful country,
but its objections are based more
on dislike and jealousy of the
United States than a strong
conviction for whatever the
Chinese government holds dear.
The countries in the Middle East
don't want US. forces to topple
Iraq because that may set a
precedent for U.S. dominance in
that area, and of course that
terrifies the Middle East
countries. France has recently
become very close with Iraq so if
Iraq was wiped out the business
deals are gone with the wind.
Why does the United States
have to be on the defensive
anyway? America is the leading
and practically only military
superpower in the worid! Yet, we
are under intense scrutiny for
protecting the world from a
madman. Threats and ultimatums
are being doled out to the United
States as if the United States was
the bad guy. That is utterly
ridiculous.
Public opinion polls show that
America is not overwhelmingly
supportive of a strike on Iraq. Of
course no one wants a war, but war
is a fact of life. The majority of the
public is not aware of all the issues
and facets therein concerning Iraq.
When national security is involved,
the public should not influence a
decision made by Clinton,
Congress, and the National
Security Council. If popular
opinion doesn't correlate with
their decision so be it. Their job is
not to be loved it is to act in the
best interest of the country
(ideally) because they do know
the all the facets of ail the issues.
A lot of this crisis comes down
to our sheepish attitude in
international affairs. We need to
set definite short term and long
term goals and stick to them. The
last thing America needs is to be
viewed as the country who cries
wolf. Maybe if the job had been
finished in Desert Storm or if
there had been lock down in
Bosnia, Hussein would either be
dead or he would know better
than to back down on the
agreements.
Hussein only speaks one
language � militaristic. If he does
agree to follow through on yet
another pact, America needs to be
prepared to enforce the pact
unconditionally. There is no sense
in a country half the size of Texas
causing such international trauma.
It is imperative that whatever
measures are taken that those
measures be so effective Iraq
never bothers the United States
againcvcr.
Opinion columnist
William Stacey
Cochran:
NO
All right, here's my two cents
worth on Iraq and Saddam
Hussein: he (i.e. Saddam) is an
annoyance, but not a threat to the
United States. If he was a serious
threat to the United States, (i.e. if
we, average Joe & Jane Citizens,
had to live in fear of being bombed
by Iraq when walking to class or
driving to work or shopping for
groceries (i.e. going through our
quotidian 9-to-5 existences) then
we would take him out. However,
he is not an imminent threat.
Take the 1991 Gulf War
incident. Iraq hurled one Scud
missile past our Patriot surface-to-
air defenses into neighboring Tel
Aviv, Israel (keep in mind that
Israel is 300 miles from Iraq while
Washington DC is over 5,000 miles
away). In contrast, the U.S. flew
40,000 air attacks dropping a pay
load of nearly a half million bombs
on Iraq. It is clearly not a question
of an Iraqi threat to the United
States that we are in the Middle
East. Then why arc we there?
Why does the United States
have two aircraft carriers, 32 ships,
28,000 personnel, and 300
warplanes in the Persian Gulf; 39
warplanes in Bahrain; 42 warplanes
and 4,500 troops in Kuwait; Navy
F-14 Tomcats, Air Force F-15
Eagles, Navy FA-18 Hornets, Air
Force F-117 Nighthawks, B-52
bombers, B-l bombers, EA-6B
Prowlers, Ravens, Fighting Falcons,
Tomahawks, Hawkcyes, AWACS
� why are we lined up like we are
about to start World War III?
Has Monica Lewinsky pissed
off President Clinton this much?
Seriously, it seems a major
U.S.U.K air strike is imminent,
but our motives seem less
substantial than in 1991. We are
not freeing Kuwait from hostile
take-over. Saudi Arabia has not
voiced considerable concern of an
Iraqi threat. It is simply that Iraq
will not allow United Nations'
inspection officials
uncompromising access to
factories that may or may not be
capable of making "wessons of
mass destruction Does Cuba
allow the U.S. access to similar
"factories"? Does North Korea?
Does China or Russia or France?
It would seem to this nickel-
and-dimc opinion columnist that
the U.S. attack (which is being
called Desert Thunder) is just an
arm-flexing tactic to show U.S.
dominance to Iraq (and the rest of
the world). Son of like if Mike
Tyson kept getting ticked off by a
100- pound weakling. After all,
Saddam did upset UN accord a
couple months ago by saying non-
US. UN officials could inspect
weapons sites. France didn't seem
to mind this condition. And now
Russian President Boris Yeltsin is
squawking about World War III
like some demented codger.
Perhaps, it is time to flex a little
muscle � to make sure the ol'
military cylinders are firing
correctly (or accurately as the case
may be with our "even smarter"
smart bombs).
I am only concerned that a U.S.
attack with such vague (and
arguably inconsequential) motives
might not be a firecracker waiting
to blow up in our hands. What do
we have to gain by blasting the hell
out of a country hardly half the size
of Texas who poses minimal (if
any) threat to the contiguous
United States? At what point does
the United States come across not
as the police of the free world, but
as the bully?

Illumina is not an English
word. It closely resembles
the word illuminate, which
comes from; the Latin word
luminare, which means "to
light up And that is exactly
what ECU art students are
doing in Mendenhall's
Upper gallery.
Illumina is a contest
sponsored by the Student
Union that awards
outstanding student
artworks. Students entered
original pieces in the
contest, which was judged
by a panel of judges from
around the region.
Awards totaled over
Si,000 in cash prizes.
Awards were given in several
categories: communication
artsphotography, metal
designs, ceramics, paintings,
foundations, printmaking,
sculpture, textiles and
drawing. There were also
overall awards: best in show,
awarded to Jeanette Little;
first place, awarded to Chris
Cardelli; and second place,
awarded to Christian
Stephens.
The Student Union
was impressed with the
calibre and the talent of the
art students. One of the
Student Union workers,
Kristen Alford, said, "The
reason we have Illumina is
it gives the students ample
opportunity to show their
work. We had twice as many
submissions this year. This

Femmes didn't stop after first album
Mark Brhtt
SENIOR WRITER
This is the coulmn where
we focus on the stuff we
miss and the stuff you
missed. We will examine
the books, albums,
television shows (and
spacecraft) we feel
deserve further
exploration. The stuff we
dug back in the day
The Femmes have weird hats.
PHOTO COURTESY Of THE VIOLENT
Staying power.
That's what marks
the career of the
Violent Femmes
more than
anything. Their
first album, simply
titled Violent Femmes,
has been a staple of
high school tape decks
(remember those?) since
its release in 1982. That's
16 years of popularity in the
most fickle and changeable listening
audience in the world, more than
Meat Loaf's Bat Out of Hell and
rivaling even the lofty heights of
ZeppefalV.
It's easy to see why. Filled with
songs of confusion and sexual
longing, that first Femmes album
speaks to the adolescent soul. And,
even better, the nasal whine of lead
singer Gordon Gano annoys the hell
out of the squares. If you want to get
on your mom's nerves, there's
nothing better than going around
wailing the chorus of "Blister in the
Sun
But, for some reason, the
Femmes' subsequent efforts haven't
commanded the attention of the
first album. It's common wisdom, in
fact, that the first one's really good,
but the rest just aren't worth
bothering with.
Of course, as it so often is,
common wisdom is just a bunch of
hooey when it comes to the
Femmes. The wildly impressive
musicianship of the first album only
continued to develop, the crazed
acoustic guitar and brush-happy
drumwork becoming more
confident over time. The perversity
of the lyrics also holds up, and
nowhere is it more apparent than on
their second album, Hallowed
Ground.
Basically a country gospel.arbum.
Hallowed Ground confused and
disturbed Femmes
fans around the nation.
Gordon Gano turning
to God? Say it ain't so!
I don't know why
people were so upset.
Really, the more
overtly religious songs
of Hallowed Ground
aren't so very far
removed from the
desperate, guilty tunes
of Violent Femmes when
you think about it.
What do you think
conjured up all that
weird tension in the first place?
Nothing breeds that kind of
repression like Christianity. On the
second album, Gano just let it all
loose. This is a guy with a lot of
issues to work out.
That's why, on the darkly upbeat
"I Hear the Rain he obsessively
chants, over and over, "Jesus isn't
watching me now, I think I'm gonna
sin That's it, Gordon! Sing it,
baby! Let it all out! Hallowed
Ground also features my favorite
Femmes tune of all time, the
absolutely evil "Country Death
Song A wickedly funny parody of
country music, "Country Death
Song" tells the story of a man who
pushes his youngest daughter down
a well and thus dooms his soul to
Hell.
This is great stuff, and anyone
who calls himself a Violent Femmes
fan should have it in his collection.
If anything, it's creepier and more
Second tribute
honors Motown
John Davis
ASSISTANT LIFESTYLE EDITOR
Don't say ECU never did nothin' for
you. This Saturday, the School of
Music is presenting
their second "Tribute
to Motown" concert
in the A. J. Fletcher
Recital Hall.
Performed in honor
of Black History
Month, this concert
will feature members
of the ECU Jazz
Ensemble, ECU
School of Music
faculty and Aishah,
the bluesjazz
vocalist who
performed the
tribute last year.
Some of the
student musicians will be Vaughn
Ambrose, who is the East
Carolinian's Student of the Week
(see the profile in today's news
section), veteran Jazz Ensemble
members Trip Aldridge and Mitch
Butler, and vocalists Callie Dellano,
Sandra Jones, Susan Luddeke and
Kahmele Youscff providing real live
doo-wop backup.
The tribute will feature such
Motown classics as Aretha Frankiln's
"Respect The Temptations' "My
Girl and Martha and the Vandellas'
"Dancin' in the Street The band
will be directed by Carroll Dashiell,
Jt, who normally directs the ECU
Jazz Ensemble. Dashiell, who
considers the
Motown style of
music important
because it, along
with jazz, is
music indigenous
to America, is
excited about
this second
tribute.
"We're looking
forward to a
funkin' good
time he said
with a smile.
Interestingly, the
tribute has
garnered enough
attention that Kevin Gordy, son of
Barry Gordy and curator of the
Motown Museum in Detroit, plans
to be in the audience on Saturday
night.
Admission is free for ECU
students and faculty. The show
begins at 8 p.m Saturday in the A.

be square.

obsessed than its predecessor, if not
quite as annoying on the surface.
But any album that can go from
infanticide to gospel"rave-ups like
"Jesus Walking on the Water to the
joys of interracial sex (in the
controversial "Black Girls") deserves
a much wider audience than
Hallowed Ground
enjoys.
The Femmes'
next album. The
Blind Leading the
Naked, represents
a bit of a slip for
the band. They,
in fact, hate it
and prefer to
pretend it
doesn't exist. But
exist it docs, and
there is some
good stuff here.
"No Killing" and
"Faith" are good religious tunes, as
are "World Without Mercy" and the
now-dated "Old Mother Reagan
And side two (remember when
albums had sides, kids?) is good
Femmes all the way through, dark
and obsessive and angry as all get
out.
Really, the only thing that makes
The Blind Leading the Naked a lesser
album is its relative lack of focus.
Violent Femmes is all about sex.
HallowedGround'is all about religion.
This third album, while it strives to
be about politics to a certain extent,
is really just an album, a collection of
songs without a thematic link. While
that makes it inferior to the
Femmes' earlier work, it's still
better than a lot of things in my
collection.
It's also better than 3, the

STXFF WRITE
The internet, a tool used by
millions of people worldwide, has
become a forum for selling term
papers. Students can download
prc-written papers off the web or
even turn in their topic and have
someone write up a fresh, less
assembly-line style paper. But
it's not light on your pocket, and
the university is not light on
cheating.
And professors are catching
on.
"It's amazing how often our
faculty finds it�I'm rather
impressed said Karen Boyd,
assistant dean of student life.
"They know their stuff
According to Boyd, for a
student's first cheating offense
there is a professor-student
meeting to decide if there is a
violation.
If cheating is determined, the
professor decides whether to
send the student to the
Academic Integrity Board or to
sanction him or her. Sanctioning
means that the professor can give
a warning, make the student do
the project over, or give a failing
grade on the paper or for the
course.
If the student docs not agree
with the sanction, he or she still
has the option to go to the
Integrity Board, members of
which can recommend a grade or
suspend the student determined
to be in violation, depending on
the severity of the offense.
A second violation of cheating
is suspension for at least a
semester. "The university
doesn't tolerate that Boyd said.
"Cheating is probably no
worse on the web than anywhere
else said Dr. Roberta Martin,
English professor. "You can
always find someone to write
your paper for you. But it doesn't
surprise me that people would
use the web for that purpose
"Because it's the faceless
exchange between students, it
seems more sinister to use, but
it's basically no harder for the
professor to detect, and the

Radiohead's been nominated in
several Grammy categories,
including Album of the Year, which
most folks would see as a good
thing, but which seems to bode ill
for the universe upon closer
inspection. Sec, the Grammys are
primarily an example of the music
industry stroking its own ego, as
evidenced by the regular correlation
between best-selling albums and
Grammy winners.
By and large, musicians who tend
to produce more artistic and
creative work are typically ignored
by the Grammys, which focuses on
acts that sell well and have snappy
videos. The only exceptions to this
rule are the old luminaries of the
tast, like Dylan and McCartney
tooth also nominated for Album of
the Year) and the more creative acts'
that, by some fluke of public

1997s pop stars win awards for

elsewhere.
Aside from mis-categorizing
several artists (U2's Pop is
nominated for best rock album?),
capitalizing on trends (Fiona and
the Wallowcrs are definitely not
"new" artists), and pandering to
out-of date fads (Babyface hasn't
been important in R&B for over a
year now), the Grammys tend to
ignore anything but the most
popular genres of music. Every so
often they'll be real nice and
mention jazz or classical music as an
afterthought. But how often do they
nominate classical or jazz records for
"Album of the Year"?
The Grammys tend to miss the
most important and influential
records and artists altogether. I'll

FEMMES
continued from page 6
Femmcs' next release. The title is
an attempt to deny the existence of
their real third album, but it's
inferior to that earlier release in
every way. Opening up to include
more electric guitar, the band lost
the tight, obsessive sound that
made their early music so
compelling. The jazz-inspired
noodling and spiraling, vertiginous
guitar work from the earlier music
gets swallowed here. Though there
are a few bright spots, 3 is more
miss than hit.
Why Do Birds Sing?, however, is a
gem. The three-man acoustic sound
returns here to good effect,
producing perhaps the band's most
listenable album. Though Gano's
voice can still set teeth on edge, he
smoothes it out a little here to good
effect.
The dark obsession is mostly
gone, too, although it still rears its
head from time to time. On "He
Likes Me" and "Look Like That
for instance, Gano comes off like the
same creepy kid he was on the first
album, only ten years later. This is
also the album that features the
Fcmmes' magnificent cover of
Culture Club's "Do You Realry Want
to Hun Me which by itself makes
Why Do Birds Sing? worth the price
of admission.
The Femmc's most recent
album, New Times, is another
unfortunate excursion into electric
guitar, and is mostly beneath
mention. It's realty for serious fans
only, I'm a pretty big fan, and even I
don't have it anymore.
There are other oddities from
the Violent Femmcs playlist,
including one import release called
ROCK that features the band in
full drag. But I've hit the main stuff
here. The Rtmmcs may falter at
times, but four out of their six
albums are great stuff. That's a good
track record for any band, and
certainly better than the rep they've
picked up over the years.
So if you've been slapping that
worn cassette copy of FtoJent Femmes
into the deck a little too long, for
God's sake buy yourself something
new. Annoy the squares! Sing along
with Gordon and let the creep shine
through.
GRAMMYS
continued from page 6
bet not one member of that
Academy thingy that votes on the
Grammys has ever heard of Yo La
Tengo, never mind their brilliant
album, I Can Hear the Heart Beating As
One.
Or take DJ Shadow, who is a
brilliant composer but won't get the
time of day from the Grammys
because of his chosen medium, the
turntables. And then there's the
you-u sed-to-be-cool-but-no w-
you're-not syndrome that's kept
bands like R.E.M. from being
recognized for superior work. New
Adventures in Hi-Fi is leagues ahead
of Paul McCartney's FamingPie, but
we see who gets the respect.
By and large, the Grammys are
usually very disappointing, and it's
no surprise since the folks with the
votes are music industry insiders
who have their own economic
interests and often don't actually
know anything about music beyond
what their ledger books tell them.
For musicians to be a part of the
Academy, they have to meet a long
list of prerequisites, such as having
produced or performed on a certain
number of albums. (I wouldn't be
surprised if there were an initiation
process like the more barbaric of
fraternities or the procedure
followed by Johnny Depp in Dannie
Brasco.)
In short, the cliquishness of the
Academy, combined with the narrow
vision of the voting members,
produces what we normally see
every yean The entertainers who
sold the most get the Grammys.
This explains the talentless and
boring Natalie Cole beating Paul
Simon and R.E.M. in 1990. And
speaking of Natalie Cole, isn't it
interesting that when the Grammys
do nominate a "jazz" singer, they
nominate an awfully bland, very
tame singer with obvious appeal to
the (dare I say it) whiter members of
the listening audience?
I won't come out and say that the
Grammys are under the control of
the Illuminati, but I will come right
out and say that I think they just
plain stink. If Radiohead wins, I
know they're just throwing folks
like me a bone, but I can tell you
right now that this dog ain't comin'
out to play. I'm staying inside and
listening to Ani DiFranco.

Miscues cause 5-4 loss

"The little things are important

UNC-Greensboro on Tuesday
afternoon. "We just didn't do the
little things and it cost us. It's a
game we should have won Two
base running errors cost the Pirates
two runs. Those runs could have
meant a victory.
The first miscue came in the
sixth inning. With runners on first
and second, shortstop Ryan
Massimo hit a towering shot to
dead center. Under less severe
conditions it would have easily
cleared the fence, but a heavy
wind blew all game long, and the
ball hit about halfway up the fence.
Both runners could rave scored,
but only one did. The second
mistake occurred in the seventh
inning. With a runner on second,
Ryan Rigsby hit a sharp ground ball
back to the pitcher, who turned

Charles marks tenth Tennis teams face high expectations
year as Voice of Pirates
Mmtehmdthemk
reflects on decade
Ian Robson
STAFF WHITER
The man on the microphone for
ECU is now in his tenth year
calling Pirate sports.
Jeff Charles has played a key
rote in Pirates sports coverage for
as long as most students can
remember, unless of course you've
been a student for the past
decade. Not only does he help Fox
Sports South cover those great
Pirate football games in the fall,
but he also does local coverage
with the Pirate Sports Network.
Charles was bom in the small
towa of Piqua, Ohio. From the very
start Charles took an interes - in
sports.
"I knew early in life what I
wanted to do; I found out my
junior year in high school Charles
said. He attended Akaden Goshen
College in Indiana where he
pursued his career in broadcasting.
He stayed close ro the college
scene' when hs landed his first job
at Furman University in South
Carolina. Charles continued on
the road to success when he began
working for Virginia Tech in 1983.
The Hokics, a powerhouse
football program in the Big East
Conference, was Charles' first shot
at a big sports scene. However
after five years in Biacksburg, Va
Charles felt it was time to leave
VT and the Hokies. Charles once
again packed up and headed south
to Pirate country.
Charles began working for the
Pirate Sports Network in 1988.
ECU sports had not yet become a
national power and weren't
considered able to play with the
big boys in the south. Ctiarlcs
commented that he has seen
phenomenal changes in the
athletics and facilities since he
first arrived.
"We ECU sports have come a
long way Charles said. "It has
totally changed for the better. The
programs are all on an upswing,
' and our facilities are outstanding
There is one distinguishing
quality Charles says that sets ECU
apart from other schools. "The
best part about ECU is the
people Charles said.
"Everyone in eastern Carolina
are very supportive and friendly.
I've lived in seven different states
and there is no place like it. 1 really
feel like a part of the community
Charles says he doesn't have
one favorite sport here but admits
he is quite partial to the football
season. He also counts on the
Pirate basketball teams to be
successful in the near future.
"I get into all of the sports here,
especially football Charles said.
"I also have a tot of confidence in
the future of our basketball
program
When asked to pick one
favorite game in any ECU sport
Charles paused. "I can't do that
he said. "There have been so
many great moments and games
that if I started telling all of them
we would be here for a long time
Charles said some of his favorites
where the Peach Bowl in 1992
(beating State is always fun) and
winning the Liberty Bowl against
Stanford in 1995. He also enjoyed
watching the men's basketball
team win the CAA conference and
obtaining a bid to the NCAA
Tournament in 1993.
Although Charles does not
know what the future holds for
him, he says he is quite happy here
at ECU and in the Greenville
community He also looks forward
to many more years of great ECU
athletics and great moments that
we can all enjoy

It wasn't an easy start for the Lady
Pirates tennis team last weekend.
They lost at Davidson College
1-8 on Friday and fell in a though
game the following day at UNC-
Charlotte with a final score of 4-5.
Against Davidson, sophomore
Michelle Martin was the bright
spot for ECU in the No. 4 singles
match. The Lynchburg, Va native
captured the Pirates' lone win in
three sets over Clara Marks 5-7,6-
2,6-4.
Commenting on the weekend,
Assistant Coach Brian Jackson
said, "Both teams already had four
or five matches under their belts,
and our team is still far away from
the level they are able to play. We
could have won against Charlotte
if we had a little bit more
experience, especially if you have
three new players in your team
Nevertheless, Gina
MacDonald, one of the new
players, already won her first
doubles match together with
Catherine Morgan against UNC-
Charlotte. "They did a great job by
coming back in their match and
win 9-7 Jackson added.
According to Jackson, the team
has gained a lot of personality, and
the girls are willing to work hard
this semester.
The Lady Pirates had a rough
time last semester with five new
players and a new coach.
Unfortunately, three players quit,
but the team got MacDonald and
Corissa Cheek back. Karen
Williams is also new on ECU's
roster.
Anne-Brigitte Svae, ECU's top
player from Norway, expects the
team to end up among the first
three in their conference.
According to Svae, who won both
her games on Saturday, the team
hasn't been able to practice that
much due to the bad weather.
"Brian Jackson was doing a
great job on the court Svae said.
"His coaching ability has increased
a lot from last semester

Head Coach Bill
Moore also recognized
the good work of both
of his coaches and will
appreciate their work
by recruiting
promising new players
for next season.
"We have two very
good girls who haven't
been allowed to sign
up yet Moore said.
"One of them is from

and it looks pretty
good that she will sign

expects his team to

Track team rebounds at
GMU Invitational in Fairfax
Underclassmen Post
Strong Finishes
Stephen Schramm
SENIOl WRITER
ECU's men's and women's track
teams traveled to Fairfax, Va. last
weekend to compete in the
George Mason Invitational. Both
teams looked to rebound from
lackluster performances in the
previous week's meets. In
addition to a chance for
redemption, the meet offered an
early glimpse of the competition
in the CAA.
Throughout the season, the
women's team has relied on
underclassmen tc deliver strong
performances. On Saturday, they
did not disappoint. Freshmen
Marshari Williams and Margaret
Clayton set personal bests and
freshman Fran Lattie and
sophomore Robin Bates ran their
best times of the season. Williams

eight tenths of a second in front of
teammate Missy Johnson, who
wound up fifth. The Lady Pirates
boasted strong finishes in the
distance events. Lattie ran 3:06.67
in the 1000 meters and Bates
finished eleventh in the mile.
In addition to being the last
indoor meet for most of the Lady
Pirates, it was also the last meet
where the team competed in field
events. For Clayton, it was her last
chance to compete before the
outdoor season begins next
month. Clayton set a personal best
in the shot put with a toss of 11.95
meters and a season best of 13.79
in the weight throw.
"We performed well
Head Coach Charles
"Choo" Justice said,
"There arc still some
areas that need
improvement, but most of
our times dropped
The men's team
looked to rebound from
last week's weather-
induced collapse and
regain their position as
one of the CAA's elite
teams. The Pirates did
just that taking 10 top-10
finishes.
In the 55-meter dash,
Vaughn Monroe finished
third followed by Titus
Haygood and Brirt Cox,
who finished fourth and
seventh respectively.
The highlight of the
day came in the 200-
meter dash, where the
Pirates managed not one,
but two first place
finishes. Haygood and
teammate Chris Justice
tied for first with times of
22.53. Freshman Brandon
Broadnax finished 12th
behind Justice and
Haygood. In the 3000 meters
Justin England placed third,
followed by fourth place finisher
Jamie Mance. In the 800 meters
the lone Pirate finisher, Von
Johnson took eighth. Another
bright spot was the performance of
freshman Michael Mercer, who in
his first collegiate meet stepped in
and finished sixth in the long
jump.
"I felt good about this meet. I
was very pleased Head Coach
Bill Carson said.
The women's track team proved strong in the dash.

Garcia seeks power in
race to be third base
starter
BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) �
Freddy Garcia wows the Pittsburgh
Pirates with home runs into the
upper deck of Three Rivers
Stadium during batting practice.
Yet his towering blasts often turn
into popups in games.
Garcia, 25, has hit a meager. 144
with three homers and six RBIs in
62 games and 97 at-bats with the
Pirates. Now in the early stages of
spring training, Garcia is the
favorite to be Pittsburgh's
opening-day third baseman. "It's
time to give Freddy his chance to
show us what he can do Pirates
general manager Cam Bonifay said.
"It's time to see if he can play at
the major-league level
His 27 home runs last season,
split between the major and minor
leagues, were more than any player
in the organization except third
baseman Aramis Ramirez, who hit
29 for Class A Lynchburg. Scouts
rave about Garcia's power
potential and strong throwing arm.
"The future is now for me
Garcia said. "I have to prove I can
lay in the major leagues. I think

10 Thursday. February 26. 1998
PGA shouldn't
have to change
rules for one person
TRAVIS BARKLEY
STAFF WRITER
By now, everyone has heard of
golfer Casey Martin, the
congenital circulatory disorder in
his right leg and his lawsuit against
the PGA. Judge Thomas Coffin
ruled on Feb. 12 that Martin will
be allowed to ride a golf cart this
year on the Nike Tour and in PGA
events. While many have praised
this decision as the right thing to
do, few people realize the possible
problems that it may cause.
First of all, the ruling states
that Martin and Martin alone will
be allowed the use of a cart.
Supporters of Martin say the use
of a cart is not necessarily an
advantage. If this is so, then why
does he want one? Because it is an
advantage for him. If Martin is
allowed to ride, everyone else
should at least be given the
option. Given a choice on a clear,
cool day, most golfers would
probably decide to walk, but with
this decision, they won't have that
choice. Martin claims that all he
wants is a level playing field, but
how can that be when he has an
option that no one else has? Vk
won't know if it is an advantage or
not unless everyone has the
choice.
Another factor in this case is
the right of professional sports
leagues to make and maintain
their own rules. Coffin based his
decision on the Americans With
Disabilities Act, which fights
discrimination against
handicapped people in the
workplace. However, the act has a
clause that exempts private clubs
and establishments.
The PGA Tour is a private
entity. Not just anyone can be a
professional golfer, players have to
follow the PGA's procedures. Also,
pro golfers aren't employees of the
PGA, they are independent
contractors playing for prize
money.
Therefore the PGA shouldn't
be forced by the courts to change
its regulations, especially when
the change benefits only one
person. Should I be able to sue the
NFL for the right to be tagged
because if I get tackled I might
get hurt? I don't think so, and I
don't think the courts should be
involved in such matters.
A lot of people arc rooting for
Casey Martin, and no one wants to
see him fail, but making a rule
change for one person is not right.
I say let Martin ride, but let
everyone else ride too.
Leclair found
Olympics a positive
experience
PHILADELPHIA (AP)� The
good outweighed the bad at the
Winter Olympics, John LeClair
said at his first training session
with the Philadelphia Flyers
since returning from Nagano.
LeClair played for Team USA,
which went to Japan with high
expectations but returned 1-3
without qualifying for the medal
round. Despite frustration about
failing to score, the 28-year-old
Vermont native remains positive
about the experience and hopes
to play at the Salt Lake City
Games in 2002.
"Overall, I think I'll look back
and still be honored that I had a
chance to participate in the
Olympics he said at the Flyers'
Monday practice.
"I would definitely go again
LeClair echoed the opinions
of some of his Olympic
teammates about an incident at
the hotel Thursday night, where
the U.S. Olympic Committee
says seven chairs were broken, a
fire extinguisher was set off and
another extinguisher was thrown
off a balcony.
"I don't think we were the
disgrace everyone said we were
said LeClair, who added that he
didn't know all the details of the
incident. "I know our room
wasn't wrecked
LeClair refused to second-
fjess Team USA's preparation,
ome teams, such as Russia,
practiced together last summer.
The Americans relied more on
their 1996 World Cup experience
to carry them through.
"Everybody's got the answers
after everything is done. The
way we prepared ourselves, in a
short period of time, I don't
know any other way you could
have done it he said.

The East Carolinian
Opening, closing ceremonies provide opportunity for
showcasing culture
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) �
The opening and closing
ceremonies of the 2002 Winter
Olympics in Salt Lake City will
provide Utah an opportunity to
showcase its history, culture and
artistic vision.
"I'd hate for the opening and
closing ceremonies to look like
halftime at the Orange Bowl said
Linda Smith of Salt Lake City's
Repertory Dance Theatre.
She hopes those in charge will
think in terms of arts and ethnic
cultures.
During the Nagano Games'
closing ceremonies Sunday, Salt
Lake City dancers posed with a
banner of the 2002 snowflake-like
logo while a Wild West stagecoach
roared through an inflatable
Delicate Arch.
