Customers and Employees of
Miami Subs on Tenth Street got a
big surprise carry Sunday when a
man entered the restaurant around
3:15 a.m ran behind the counter
and stole money out of the register.
Cashier Deborah Carolina had
her cash drawer open to help a
Stron when 28-year-old Michael
mnell Williams came into the area
behind the serving counter and
attempted to push her out of the
way to take money out of the
register.
"He tackled her said Nick
Tavakoly, general manager of the
restaurant. "She had to grab onto
the edge of the register to keep from
falling?

robbery occurred.
"Me and my friend were talking
and then she Carolina
screamed and they were
wrestling around a little,
and he took the $20 she
was taking from my

Williams would have
netted only $94 if he had
suceeded; Tavakoly
keeps less than $100 in
every drawer.
Tavakoly, who was
present at the time of the
robbery, said Williams
tackled Carolina so
forcefully that she had
to be taken to the
hospital for minor
injuries.
However,WiIliams, who
was unarmed, ran out of the
building and attempted to escape in
a car as soon as he had grabbed what
money he could from the cash
drawer.
"He was caught immediately;
the police did an excellent,

Williams was apprehended
shortly after attempting to elude an
officer who was trying to pull him
over. Tavakoly said the police had
responded to the establishment's
security system. The restaurant is
equipped with measures that
include plain-clothed guards and
the silent alarm Williams set off

Student leaders make average living as SGA members
Officers nationwide
receive sti
benefits
MELANIE hackworth
STAFF WRITER
Many student leaders at various
schools receive an overwhelming
salary. A recent issue of Student
Leader magazine surveyed the
amount of compensation student
government officers receive across
the country. The SGA officers at
ECU receive a monthly stipend as
well as various other benefits.
The magazine article
questioned whether or not student
leaders should receive any
compensation.
SGA President Scott Forbes
indicated in a recent phone
interview that he receives $400 a
month as a stipend, $200 for books
per semester, a rent allotment for
the summer term and a Board of
Trustees Staff parking sticker.
With $400 a month stipend and
other benefits, Forbes still has to
work outside of campus. He puts
in over 30 hours a week for the SGA
and is also manager of the Jenni K
jewelry store in Greenville.
Officers of the SGA used to receive
a tuition stipend, but it was taken
away for this school year. Now they
make less than minimum wage.
"I would've been able to put
even more time into the job if I had
not lost my tuition stipend and had
to work Forbes said.
The SGA president is required
by the constitution to stay in
Greenville over the summer, which
is why Forbes receives a summer
rent stipend.
When asked why SGA leaders
receive payment, Forbes
responded, "Not everyone's
mommy and daddy pays for college;
some students have to

those stipends, some
students would not he
able to afford to be in
student government
In reality, SGA makes
an average living. Many
public colleges, such as
the College of William &
Mary in Va give no
compensation whatsoever.
On the other hand,
many public, high budget
colleges pay their SGA
officers a large amount.
Florida Atlantic
University's SGA
president receives up to
$10,200 a year in addition to a
tuition reimbursement for up to 12
hours of classes.
Also, most SGA officers receive
extras such as book stipends, rent
stipends and parking stickers.
Forbes pointed out that less
than 50 cents of student fee money

goes to compensating the SGA
officers. Only $9.75 of student fee
money goes to the SGA at all. The
athletic department receives $244
of student fee money and is able to
provide full scholarships, rents
stipends and other compensations.

There were quite a few
dissapointed Fiona Apple fans at
Minges Collcsium Sunday night.
Apple's concert, scheduled to
begin at 8 p.m. Sunday, was
indefinitely postponed earlier in
the weekend.
Announcements ran on
WZMB, the campus radio station
all weekend, but quite a few fans
still didn't get the word, and

Friday Gray said. Sony Records
had even purchased 60 tickets
tor the show from the Student
Union, according to Marshal.
Rumors were rampant over
the weekend as students, fans
and local newspapers speculated
as to Apple's reasons for
postponing the show. Some,
remembering past Student
Union concert debacles such as A
Tribe Called Quest's
cancellation in 1996, speculated
that enough tickets hadn't been
sold.
In truth, close to 3000 tickets
had been sold, which was enough

The Registrar's Office announced
this week its new telephonic
registering system is ready for use.
With a few easy steps, students will
now be able to register for classes
and drop or add classes using any
touch tone phone in the country.
The Automated Voice Response
System, or AVRS, will be available
to currently enrolled
undergraduate, graduate and non-
degree students Monday, March
30, at 10 a.m. for the summer and
fall sessions.
In an electronic announcement
about the new service, Assistant
Registrar Amy Bissette writes, "it
AVRS1 will save you from having
to come to campus and stand in
line to get the information you
need
Detailed instructions on the
system's use will be included in
the SummerFall 1998 Schedule of
Classes which will be passed out in
mid-March.
Before students can use AVRS,
they must take care of all
obligations to the university, get
their registration code from their
adviser and visit the AVRS website
in order to obtain a pin number.
The AVRS website is
http:acs.cis.ecu.eduservices.htm
I. At the web site, simply click on
the AVRS icon and follow the
instructions. A PIN number must
be four to eight digits long and
must follow the guidelines
indicated on the website.
Also, before calling, students
must have their schedule worked
out with alternate courses listed in
case courses are full.
After a PIN number is chosen,
an activation code will be e-mailed
to the student's exchange e-mail
address.
Bissette warns students, "don't
give someone else your PIN .
A PIN number is a completely
private matter.
"Don't tell it to anybody any
more than you would give someone
your bank account number

In the next millennium a lot of
things are expected to change, but
computer technology for the year
2000 and beyond will be one of the
top priorities.
"It's kind of hard to sort out
what really will happen as opposed
to what we think will happen
said Leon Gipson, a web and
internet developer.
Finding out what will happen
with computers has been a topic
for discussion. A task force has
been formed to deal with the
impact of the year 2000 (Y2K)
glitch. The task force gives
seminars every quarter to provide
background information on the
year 2000 problem and present
some of the actions being taken.
The task force has a web site that
discusses the year 2000 difficulties
at http:Y2K.ECU.EDU.
Computer programs have
systems that are sequenced with
certain numbers. The year 2000
glitch will cause problems because
most are sequenced with numbers
in the 1900's, not 2000's. These

According to Dunlap, the goal is
to make everyone aware of what is
going on.
The university has already been
working on making sure the main
systems of functioning on campus
are free of any problems.
According to Dunlap, ECU has
already converted its mainframe
systems. Registration and
telephone systems were changed
about four years ago.
"ECU has already purchased
software that will go well into the
21st century Gipson said.
Some school systems, such as
the University of Tennessee, have
purchased systems like the SCT
Banner 2000 to help with year
2000 compliance standards. ECU
has not bought this software
because ECU does not use their
software program.
Instead of buying a whole new
system, the CIS department is
looking at it from a different light.

The East Carolinian
Report shows society splinters into two groups Hc!lg
WASHINGTON (AP) �Thirty
years ago, at the height of
America's civil rights movement, a
report concluded that the United
States was being divided into two
societies: ' one black, one white
�separate and unequal On the
anniversary of that Kerner
Commission report, a private
urban-policy group says that's
exactly what has happened.
Released this weekend, the
report called "The Millennium
Breach" says the economic and
racial divide in the Unked States
not only has materialized, it's
getting wider.
"While leaders and pundits
talk of full employment, inner city
unemployment is at crisis levels
said the Milton S. Eisenhower
Foundation. "The rich are
getting richer, the poor are getting
poorer, and minorities are
suffering disproportionately
The foundation's report was
issued to coincide with Monday's
anniversary of the National
Advisory Commission on Civil
Disorders' releacs of the Kerner
Commission report, named
after its chairman, then-Illinois
Gov. Otto Kerner.
People need to become
aware that things are getting
worse again said the new
report's co-author, Fred Harris, a
former Democratic senator from
Oklahoma and member of the
Kerner Commission. "They
need to see their own self-interest
in this � that it doesn't make
sense to have these underutilized
regions in the country and these
underutilized people whose lives
are being wasted
Not all black leaders were
impressed with the findings.
Robert S. Woodson Sr a black
conservative who heads the
National Center for
Neighborhood Enterprise, said
Friday the report rehashes earlier
Kerner Commission updates and
offers recommendations too
general to be useful. He accused
the authors of being "stuck in
the '60s" and seeing the world
only through a prism of race
Racism and discrimination
still exist. But they aren't the
biggest problems facing blacks in
.America today Woodson said.
"The real issue is the growing
economic rift within the black
community
The report says an estimated
dlrs 56 billion would be needed to
carry out its recommendations:
Expand funding for successful
programs like Head Start, reduce
investment for ineffective
programs and cut corporate
welfare and military spending.
"Polls show that typical
Americans want to do more for
the truly disadvantaged and the
inner city but think that the major
obstacle to doing more is " lack of
knowledge the report said.
But we already know what
doesn't work, what does work and
how to replicate what does work
What does work?
The report includes Head
Start, after-school youth centers,
urban school reform and school-
to-work programs as things that
work. Other successes, the report
says, are programs that focus on
job training, placement and
retention, inner city economic
development and crime and drug
prevention.
What doesn't work?
The report scoffs at supply-
side economics � the idea that
tax breaks for the rich and
corporations will stimulate
investments and benefits that will
trickle down to the middle class
and the poor. The report
denounces enterprise zones, the
federal job training program for
out-of-school youth and prison
construction. It also cites the
ineffectiveness of boot camps,
which President Bill Clinton has
supported. .And it says volunteer
work� something the
administration promoted at a
1997 summit in Philadelphia �
can't be expected to single-
handedly rebuild poor
neighborhoods and individuals.
The report cites mountains of
statistics as evidence: While the
national jobless rate is below 5
percent, unemployment rates for
young men in places like south-
central Los Angeles have topped
30 percent; the child poverty rate
in America is 4 times the average
of western European countries;
the incarceration rate of black
men in the United States is 4
times higher than the same rate in
South Africa under apartheid; and
43 percent of minority children
attend urban schools, usually
where more than half the
students are poor and more than
two-thirds fail to reach even basic
levels of national tests.
time they worked with an on-
campus publication, created a web
site and moved the pep rally to a
Thursday so the football team
could attend.
Marshall hopes students walk
away with respect for the work
involved in organizing
Homecoming, and learn new-
organizational skills. If any
student is interested in helping,
he or she can call the Student
Union.
"It's very time consuming, but
very fun Marshall said. "The
most important thing to me now is
that student organizations think
about it, and mark it on their social
calendars
Homecoming events include
the game � ECU vs. University
of Alabama at Birmingham on
Saturday. Oct. 10, three weeks
earlier than usual. In addition to
the game, a week of activities will
be slated: homecoming court
announcement, autograph night,
banner contest, pep rallv.
fireworks, concerts and a parade.
Homecoming Week entertains
not only the students, but
provides for the community and
student organizations as well.
"The autograph night is done
for the community, Marshall said.
"It is held at Carolina East Mall,
and provides the opportunity for
kids aged 5-14 to meet ECU
athletes. The banner contest
involves any organization who
wants to make a banner to displav
inside the Student Union. The
pig pickin' is for the high school
bands who we invite to be a part of
our homecoming parade
The Homecoming Steering
Committee urge organizations to
get involved and attend meetings
which are held in Mendenhall, and
will begin after Spring Break.

After a recent swirl of controversy surrounding the resignation of former Student
Government Association Vice President Scan McManus, an election is planned to be held to
fill the position. The position will be filled for just a few short weeks until the annual
elections take place that will fill the position for the next school year.
SGA's constitution states that when the position of vice president becomes vacant an
election must be held within three weeks to fill the position for the remainder of the term,
and the SGA is doing this. It is truly wonderful that the SGA is following procedure directly
by the book. But, it is time we step aside and look at the facts here. The SGA is going to
spend an obscene amount of money to hold this election that will fill a position for a just a
few weeks. Then the SGA will spend another obscene amount of money to hold the big
election in April. Is this necessary? What can a person accomplish as SGA Vice President in
four weeks?
Yes, the constitution states that this process is necessary, but maybe it is time that the
constitution is changed. The current and soon-to-be SGA should begin a campaign to change
this policy. In the event that an office becomes vacant so close to election time, there should
be a way of getting around that policy. An amendment to the constitution may be done by
getting a vote of two-thirds of the membership of the SGA legislature on three different
readings or by a petition presented in writing to the student body president carrying the
signature of 15 percent of the membership of the student body. Fifteen percent of the
student body is a pretty large number to ask to sign a petition considering you can't get
fifteen percent of the student body to take part in the election process much less go to class
on a daily basis.
! It is time for the student body to wake up and take part in their university and get rid of
the laws we all seem to sit around and complain about half the time. Just think if we all took
five minutes of our time we could be looking at a much better university.
Unfounded allegations can kill a reputation
I would like to address the Feb. 19
article entitled, "Dean Faces
Harassment Suit Regardless of
how you pronounce "harassment1'
(emphasizing the ss or the ass), the
word connotes immoral abuse of
power, slighted sexual innuendoes
and forced acts of impurity.
' The recipient of such a charge is
stigmatized as a loathsome,
authoritative individual with almost
enough mettle to be a maggot. An
allegation against anyone (the
greater his power, the better) is
deemed newsworthy, not because it
presents facts, but because it
presents possibilities.
Sensationalism is shrouded in
possibilities. Accusations become
headlines long before an
investigation in conducted.
The case in question was
investigated, prior to its headlining,
by the university. The institution,
which would brunt the burden if
such allegations were founded in
truth, closed the case. Why was the
case closed? Because of a cover up or
a university conspiracy? No, you
scandal mongers. It was closed
because the irreverent charges
failed to reveal misconduct.
Unfounded accusations and
subsequent headlines can lead to
unwarranted character defamation.
Dr. Speier is an asset to the
university and its student body. He
is an unequaled resource to students
and student organizations, due to
his unyielding commitment and
leadership. Dean Speier does not
need my character defense; his
record speaks for itself.
This allegation and story belong

LETTER
Computer labs should be open to all
Do you ever wonder where your
tuition dollars go? I thought my
dollars went toward things such as
computer access. I have been here
for four years and I have never been
kicked out of a computer lab until
last week.
I was not causing a ruckus or
abusing the equipment; no, I was
working quietly on a computer in
GCB 3001. I am a communication
major and a business administration
minor. The lab I just mentioned, as
many of you know, is supposed to be
used for finance, marketing,
decision sciences, accounting,
marketing etc. (all business
courses). I entered the lab the other
day to work on my marketing, but
while I was there, I thought I would
finish up some of my work for a
communication course. Let me tell
you now, I wouldn't advise doing
this to anyone else.
Aren't my tuition dollars paying
for that lab as much as any other lab?
You might think so, but instead lab
assistant was over my shoulder,
sternly informing me that I had
better save my work and leave the
lab. How silly of me. I typed
"COMM" at the top of the
particular document. She saw it;
that was the end. Get out!
I understand that the lab is
firimariry for business course use;
'm not sure why, but I understand.
Jumping down my throat and
kicking me out of the lab seems a
little excessive to me personally
though. I take courses in the School
of Business: I pay my tuition. Why

Hi
mm&-
umnists
Was Titank worth the money
sunken into making it?
can't I use the computer lab? In
addition, why do they even have
Exchange access on those
computers � is that for a business
course or personal use? I'm not
saying they should discard things
like that, but instead I would just
like to use any computer lab on
campus. Is there something wrong
with that? I will continue to use this
lab for my marketing work, but what
a hassle it will be ifl have arty other
work to do.
No hard feelings � just
thinking out loud.

I wasn't around when the Titanic
sank. Nobody on board had a video
camera. We'll never be able to sec
the actual event. But the movie sure
as heck made me feel like I was
there for every minute of it. That
was $200 million well spent.
Ill be the first to admit that a
movie can have awesome effects
and crappy acting , story, and
everything else and be a crappy
movie (Lost World, Speed 2). Of
course the things that really made
Titanic what it was were the
chemistry and sheer skill of Kate
Winslet, Leonardo DiCaprio and
the rest of the gang. I am a firm
believer that the story and its
portrayal make the movie. But
darned if those million-dollar effects
didn't contribute.
Star Wars awed us (the first
time) because we had never seen
such sights, as did ET. Those were
effects that we will always
remember � anyone recall seeing
Elliott's bike fry across the moon?
How about Toy Story? The
expensive effects in these movies
make the story more real. A big
budget gives a director room to
create the actuality of a scene and
genuinely capture the true historical
accuracy of a movie set in the past.
Let's face it: the more money
you have, the more detail.
And this is necessary now in
historical and fantasy movies to
make the viewers feel that they arc
experiencing the event. Otherwise
we end up with Plan 9 from Outer
Space. "Willful suspension of
disbelief" will only go so far these
days, as we are a sophisticated
viewing audience (in most cases). It
takes more for the audience to
believe in a situation than it did
twenty years ago. And we are
accustomed to eye candy. The more
detailed and colorful, the quicker
we become enrapt in the fantasy
that the movie has created.
Of course, many movies do not
need the help of costly special
effects and detailed accuracy to
affect the audience. Most of my
favorites and all-time greatest
movies ever made arc low-budget,
no-budget films. The problem
comes when every dilhveed with a
camera tries to make a movie. The
indie craze has prompted too many
dillweeds to buy a camera. I see the
people hanging around the
Independent Film section of the
local neighborhood video dive, never
venturing forth to broaden their
minds in other aisles. The Coen
brothers, gods of all that is indie,
once made a high budget film: Tie
Hudsucker Proxy. Great flick. Does
anyone mention it in discussion
about the brothers Coen? Nope.
Those same people who hang out in
the indie aisle thought that they had
sold out. This kind of thinking
should have died with Hammer
Pants.
I'm only going to say this once,
then I'm going to change my phone
number and bolt my doors: Clerks
sucked. It was a 90-minute
sophomoric joke. And yet this movie
is hailed as the best example of
excellent film making with no
budget. I turned it off in the middle,
it was so bad. This is not to say that
a movie cannot be made with no
budget; it is saying, however, that
not every independent film is worth
the effort it takes to watch it.
Movies like this are a discredit to
humanity in general.
What makes a movie great is
when all the elements come
together, and this is a rare and
glorious event that should be
celebrated. This was the case with
Titank. The budget didn't make the
movie good. It would have been
good anyway. And a bad movie is a
bad movie, period. People should
recognize this fact, and not base
their opinions on the popularity of a
movie (or on how unpopular the
movie is). So those of you who shy
away from anything that can afford
to have any sort of publicity, go see
Titanic. Live the experience as it
actually happened. Learn a thing or
two about humankind. Because
that, after all, is what real
filmmaking is about.
Opinion columnist
Jeff Bergman:
NO
Titanic, the invulnerable ship that
sunk, now has a movie in its
namesake. The movie is supposedly
unsinkable, yet I hope to punch a
few holes in its hull.
$200,000,000 � would you look
at all those zeros? For that price I
could have made a blockbuster or a
Waterworld. Most of the money was
spent on the high-tech special
effects � or as I like to say, "Crap
thrown in a movie, to make people
forget they just spent $6 for
admission ($12 if you are on a date
and not a cheapskate), and another
$6 getting some grub
In most of these high budget
features the acting is sub par
anyway. The next thing I want to
see Leonardo "The only thing
missing from this toothpick body is
the track marks" DiCaprio in is a jail
cell for robbing the American
citizens of their money.
No, I have not seen Titanic, and
guess what, I refuse to watch this
movie. Two reasons: the budget and
history.
History repeats itself, sometimes
on screen. Forget about historical
accuracy, show me the drama that
never happened. Welcome to
Hollywood, where history is thrown
away, in the effort to further de-
educate the public, and money has
its own religion (Scientology).
If I wanted to see two star-
crossed lovers, I would watch Leo's
last grating performance, Romeo.
Romeo and Juliet would have been a
lot better had Leo and Claire
Daines not played the feature
characters.
A strange coincidence between
Romeo and Leo's current character
is that they arc both men chasing
after women they cannot have.
Wow, I have not seen this much
character typecasting (self
imposed) by an actor since Top Gun,
Risky Business, Mission Impossible, The
Firm and Days of Thunder.
Titanic's budget is like Rush
Limbaugh, so damned big and
blown out of proportion, you can't
help but gawk. I like movies with
interesting dialogue and good plots.
Clerks, Night of the Lwing Dead,
Halloween, Reservoir Dap, A Njght m
Casablanca, Strange Brew and The
Blues Brothers. Combined, these
films cost less to produce than
Titanic. They are also high quality, in
respects to dialogue, acting, and a
non-predictable ending You know
the ending, the ship hit the bottom
of the ocean, much like California is
doing now.
Leo and the rest of the sinking
ship will not see my money. Nor win
this group ever get the drift that
America wants more than huge
explosions and special effects. Well,
not with my friends who go to see
the movie four or five times. The
only movie I might go to a theater
and see that often, is The Rocky
Horror Picture Shorn, also better than
Titank.
Oh, and for the conspiracy buffs
out there, the ship at the bottom of
the Atlantic Ocean is not the
Titanic but her sister ship. Read the
book The Titank Conspiracy. Or wait
for the movie to come out, starring
Tom Cruise as a hot shot skipper, on
the edge, ready to flip at any second
and Sharon Stone, who gets nekkid.
The movie's plot is in the
stereotypical Hollywood fashion.
Stone must be saved by the
handsome lead actor, is what real
filmmaking is about.

COUCH
BOY
March Madness'98
RICH CORNWELL
STAFF WRITER
8 OUT OF lO
EA Sports has finally come up with
a college basketball title, the first
since Coach K in 1995. March
Madness 98 is their latest attempt
and it doesn't disappoint. Madness is
stacked with over 100 of this year's
college teams from all the major
conferences. Unfortunately, the
Colonial Athletic Conference
didn't make the cut so there will be
no taking ECU to the
championship this year. All the big
names are here including every
team from such conferences as the
ACC, Big Ten, Conference USA,
WAC and many more.
In season play mode each team
is given a 30 game schedule with a
full slate of conference games. The
schedules are not accurate to the
respective teams for this season
basically because the top teams
play cupcakes in non-conference
games and these weaker teams just
aren't on the game. Expect your
non-conference schedule to be
loaded with teams like Indiana,
Georgetown, UMass, Temple and
the like. This makes for a tougher,
more interesting schedule for the
country's top teams.
The best and most essential
feature of Madness is the post
season tournament that takes up to
64 teams. The only bad pan about
this is that with only 100 or so
teams, 60 percent of the teams are
going to make the tournament.
There also won't be any of those
small schools playing in the first
round that we all like to pull for.
The good thing about this
tournament is that it will be loaded
with talented teams, which makes
for a more competitive tournament.
The rosters arc accurate, for the
most part, to the rosters of their
real counterparts this season. It
might be a good idea to find a
source for names to match up with

Student Union concert debacles
such as A Tribe Called Quest's
cancellation in 1996, speculated
that enough tickets hadn't been
sold.
In truth, close to 3000 tickets
had been sold, which was enough
for the Student Union to break
even. "That's about 1000 more
than she's usually sold at other
venues in the past Gray said.
Some blamed it on Apple's
recent Grammy win. In an attempt
to support this position The Daily
Reflector quoted Marshal as saying
"I'm not sure whether it's
Grammy driven or if we've just got
a little girt who's too big for her
britches
When questioned about this on
Sunday, Marshal insisted his words
were taken out of context by the
Reflector's reporter, John
Newland. "I never said that
Marshal said. According to
Marshal, he was questioned about
the public reaction to the
postponement and he was
speculating on the reasoning of
upset fans.
"There are two camps
Marshal said on Sunday. "One of
these camps beleives that Fiona
cancelled because she wants more
money after her Grammy win and
I was discussing that with Mr.
Newland on his prompting
The Grammy theory doesn't
hold water because more dates
than just the ECU date have been
postponed, according to Gray.
Still others were worried that
the Student Union's lack of a
signed contract with Monterrey
Peninsula (Apple's tour
management) caused the
cancellation. "Other dates with
signed contracts were cancelled as
well Gray said in response to
that.
"It's true we didn't have signed
contract Marshal said, "but that's
not our fault. Vie sent them the
contract before Christmas break
and I've personally called them
every working day from January 12
until this past Friday.
"We can't pay (a performer)
unless we have a signed contract
with them
In spite of the lack of a
contract, Apple's management
company had given to go-ahead to
sell tickets to the Student Union
as early as February. "We received a
fax that told us, 'Let's go ahead
and put tickets on sale, Gray
said.
"We waited until we g'�t
something in writing before we
put any tickets on sale. A lot of
times when you're dealing with a
major performer, they try to hold
the contracts until all the tour
dates are confirmed
As it is, the Student Union
stands to lose a considerable
amount of money. Close to $5000
was spent on advertising, security,
sound and light companies. Some
of this is money that the Student
Union is contractually bound to
pay-
Thus far, the real reason behind
the postponement and
information regarding possible
make-up dates is unavailable.
There is a possibility that the show
could be cancelled, meaning that
there would be no make up date
for the show. This all depends on
the severity of the situation that
caused the show to be postponed,
and as of yet, no one seems to be
certain what the outcome will be.

Cori Martin, a two-year member,

some students were not so
receptive to people whose
sexual orientations are
different from the norm.
But difficult times

a cause, building strength
and adding to the resolve

Whitey delivers to Alfredo's II crowd
Miccah Smith
SENIOR WRITER
Hey kidsdo ya tikethe
rock 'n roll?
Whitey delivered a tight show
Saturday night at Alfredo's II, and if
you weren't there you missed the
best show in Greenville.
The five-year-old band has been
playing all the venues in Greenville,
and several around North Carolina
for years now. They've accumulated
a strong, loyal and vocal fan base
capable of packing smaller joints
(like Alfredo's II) to the fire-hazard
mark.
Whitey's popularity can be
attributed to their high energy- level
and the intensely artistic abilities of
Eddie White, lead guitarist and good
old-fashioned rock vocalist.
Rhythm guitarist and vocalist
John Kury admirably supported
Whitey's driving sound, adding the
occasional lead lick to keep it

interesting.
Myk Williams whipped his drums
into submission with a fevered
excitement unparalleled by most
other Greenville drummers, and a
shirtless Davis Whitmer showed the
audience how to make bass
playing fun and easy,
interspersing horrid jokes
between the songs.
The overall effect of the first
number was like listening to
your best friend's cool older
brother's progressive rock
CDs back in '92, but with
some classic funk thrown in.
They used vocal harmony to
good effect in this song as
well as a few others, but were
careful not to make a staple
of it.
A lot of their songs possess
the same sadly introspective
groove, minus the alterna-
guilt trips so prevalent and
hackneyed in much of
today's other music, but the
show soon picked up with a
fresh, interesting cover of
Hendrix's "Hey Joe
I couldn't tell if the song was
fast or slow; the tempo kept
changing on me. All I know is
that Whitey took a mellow Hendrix

with a definite hard rock edge. If I'd
had a lighter, I might have been
tempted to use it.
"Lines of Insanity" was a rubber-
band-tight original whose chorus
had a Primusy feel. Eddie's brash
and untempcred solos continued to
infuse the songs with hair-band
attitude.
This band was unashamed to
rock old-school style, with a sort of
early Pearl JamAnthrax-influenced
blend that made me want to slip on
a tube top and a fringy leather jacket
in preparation to bang my head all
night, guilt-free.

Eddie's piercingly accurate solo
dripped with feeling and electric
sorrow, and there was r r :n to
dance because the crowd packed in
so tightly upon itself, nodding along
to the song and mouthing the words
emphatically.
This was by far one of the
crowd's favorites, along with the

There was a big ol' throwdown in
the A. J. Fletcher Recital Hall
Saturday. Present and former
members of the ECU Jazz
Ensemble were joined by blues
vocalist Aishah for their tribute to
Motown.
The small auditorium was
packed to standing room only when
the curtain peeled back to reveal
Carroll Dashiell and company
puttin' on a phat groove and laying
out the jams for the folks. From the
moment Aishah strutted out on
stage, she had complete control of
that crowd. The veteran vocalist,
who has performed with the likes of
Patti LaBelle and Aretha Franklin,
delivered spirited readings of
Motown classics that had every foot
in the place tapping. Some folks
even decided to cut a rug in the
aisles.
The group, which featur
Vaughn Ambrose on sax, Ja
Ensemble alumni Damon Brown
and Wayne Viar on bass and drums,
and current Ensemble members
Tripp Aldredgc, Mitch Bugler, Br
Castro and David Dial, .was tight
and definitely in the groove. They
opened with a rip-roanngi version of
"Respect then segued into "My
Girl.
Aishah is a fun, confident
performer; she had the crowd
nostalgic one minute and laughing
the next. During one of Dashicll's
piano solos, she mimicked his chin-
up-bottom-lip-out-eyes-closed-rm-
in-my-groovc-and-lovinit-facc,
much to the delight of the crowd.
Before the intermission, the
group launched into an epic medley
of "Dancin' in the Street "Sugar
Pie Honey Bunch" and a sizzling
"Shotgun.
During the intermission, Kevin
Gordy, grand-nephew of Motown
founder Berry Gordy, came out and
spoke to the crowd, revealing a
possible return of Motown
headquarters to Detroit and other
future Motown endeavors.
Then the group came back in
with a fantastic, jazzed-up "Dr.
Feelgood in which Ambrose
earned his keep with some amazing
sax chops. His solo reached an
electric, lively height that the band
picked up on. They stayed in that
groove for the rest of night,
enorped by Ambrose. That cat can
tell a good story on his saxophone,
no doubt about it.
One of the highlights of the
evening was Aishah's Erykah Badu
impersonation. She waltzed off
backstage after "I Heard it Through
the Grapevine" and came back on
with a big ol' turban on her head.
She proceeded into a rousing
version of "Call Tyrone" during
which all the sisters and, not a few
brothers, in the crowd began to sing

Duke who was left off the roster
since he was suspended for the first

Madness tracks all stats for the
team you choose. For the most part,
this section is very thorough, but the
only complaint is that they list totals
instead of averages in categories
such as rebounding, scoring and
assists. The only way to get
averages is to bust out the old
calculator and divide whatever
amount by games played.
The flow of the game is a lot like
NBA Uve titles and for the most part
it plays pretty smoothly. The camera
angles take some getting used to,
down.
If Dashiell and company keep up
Motown shows of this quality, this
could become an ECU tradition just
like the popular Jazz at Night
shows. Judging from the
disappointment of the crowd at the
brevity of the show (it lasted just
over an hour), Motown tans at ECU
won't complain at all if this becomes
a permanent fixture each spring.
(they are nothing like any other
basketball games) but it only takes a
couple of games to settle in.
Madness also features a
momentum bar that swings from
team to team as a team gets hot.
Start putting on a run and the bar
turns yellow, and if you can keep
pouring it on, then you may get the
bar to turn red. If you start to get
smoked, the best thing to do is call
timeout to regroup as this
automatically lowers the other
teams momentum.
Overall, March Madness '98 is a
solid game that does college
basketball justice. After previous
failed attempts, college basketball
has finally arrived to Playstation
(and may be released on Saturn and
N64). Hopefully, this title will
continue in the future because it
shows a lot of promise. EA Sports
has again proven it is the king of
sports games.

The East Carolinian
Basketball's Tournament time closes basketball season
finale fails
to be fair
CAAaUows
advantages to some but
notall
Expectations cut short
for ECU men
TRACY M. LAUBACH
SPORTS EDITOR
TRACY M. LAUBACH
SPORTS EDITOR
Everyone looks forward to
tournament time. It is the one
and only point during the season
when the past truly does not
matter, and every opponent
comes in 0-0.
This year's tournament in
Richmond was more than just a
battle among basketball teams.
The cheerleaders came to show
off their stuff, the bands
challenged each other with their
talents and even the mascots
butted heads and competed for
the crowd's loudest applause.
With so much happening
around me in the Richmond
Coliseum, it is hard to imagine
that I could be distracted at all
from my place on press row, but as
a reporter and also a faithful Pirate
fan. I have to tell vou. sometimes
life is just not fair, and other times
it isjust downright frustrating.
The conference basketball
tournament is held each and every
year at the Richmond Coliseum
because it is supposedly the
"central" location amongst all of
the schools in the league. How
fair is that, considering the
coliseum is where Virginia
Commonwealths basketball
teams hold all of their home
games? The University of
Richmond is also at a huge
advantage, considering how close
the school is to the coliseum.
While conference officials
maintain that it is fair to hold the
championship at a mutually
relative location for all of the
teams, they are failing to realize
that in doing so they gave the two
local teams several advantages
over all others.
First of all, ECU's men played
in the first round of the
tournament, which was held on
Wednesday night. While the most
dedicated ECU fans were able to
make the trip up to Richmond, it
was close to impossible for any of
the students or staff to make the
game because it was held in the
middle of the week. The men's
game was against VCU, and being
as the VCU campus is just a few
blocks away, it was not difficult at
ail for VCU fans to fill the stands.
In order for the tournament to
be truly fair to all teams, a home
team advantage needs to be
eliminated. The solution? Well, it
is not my job to come up with one,
but for starters, it may be more
appropriate to rotate the location
of the tournament among the
schools in the league. Or perhaps
a better attempt should be made
to find a truly "central" location
for the tournament.
Furthermore, aside from
having a home court advantage,
the players from these two local
teams were able to sleep in their
own beds and carry out their
normal, everyday lives all week
long. They did not have to deal
with uncomfortable hotel beds,
fatigue from traveling or catching
up on schoolwork from missed
classes; every other team had
these burdens placed on their
shoulders. Of course, this was not
a factor for ECU's cheerleaders or
band. They did not stay in hotels
at all; instead they traveled to
Richmond for Wednesday's
games, came back to Greenville
that night, and then headed back
to Richmond again on Thursday
for the women's quarterfinal
game. Crazy, huh?
I am not trying to make
excuses for the fact that our men's
team was eliminated in round
number one of the tournament.
Our guys went and gave it their all
and things didn't go as we had
planned or hoped for, but that is
not the point. The point is that it
is time to face the facts there
were a heck of a lot more people
SEE TOURNAMENT PAGE 11
The Colonial Athletic Association
held the 1998 conference
basketball tournament this
weekend at the Richmond
Coliseum in Richmond, Va.
ECU's men, seeded number
eight going in, faced Virginia
Commonwealth for the first game
of the championship on
Wfedncsday night. The last time
the two teams met was on Feb. 7
in Greenville resulting in a 83-79
Pirate win.
ECU took a 5-11 conference
record to to Richmond, while the
Rams ranked ninth overall with a
4-12 regular season record.
Although the Pirates got off to a
strong start in the first half, VCU
fought back to narrow the point
margin and grab a two-point
halftime lead with a shot at the
buzzer.
VCU Head Coach Sonny Smith
said the last basket at the buzzer
was a lift for his team to take to the
locker room.
"In the first half, we did a great
job of not turning the ball over and
playing together Smith said.
"ECU ran the court very well and
got some easy baskets on us, but
the basket at the buzzer was
definitely big for us
G a r r e t t
Blackwelder led
ECU in scoring at
the end of the first
half with nine
points, shooting
perfect from the
foul line.
According to
Head Coach Joe
D c -ley
Blackwelder played
with a lot of
confidence.
"Garrett is not
afraid to go out and
play or make mistakes, and he has
played extremely well in the last
eight or nine games of the season
Dooley said. "Through hard work,
he is becoming a very solid player
for us
The Pirates came out in the
second half to increase their lead
t0 44.37 by the 13:03 mark, but
the Rams slowly caught up once
again and with 4:47 left on the
clock tied the score at 53-53.
With the pressure turned up a
notch, VCU answered with good
shots from both the floor and the
line and posted 12 more points by
the end of the game. The Pirates,
on the other hand, added only nine
more points and handed the Rams
a three point victory, 65-62.
According to senior guard Tony
Parham, this game sums up the
season as a whole.
"When we needed big
rebounds, we didn't get them, and
when we really needed to score,
we didn't Parham said. "At the
end, we were just trying to get the
best shot available, and they were
able to stop us
Senior Othello Meadows said
the loss was a disappointing way to
close his college career.
"This is not a good indicator of
what Tony and I have tried to do
since we came to ECU Meadows
said. "It is hard to go out like this
because we feel like we still have
so much to give
Along with Parham and
Meadows, the Pirates are losing
seniors Raphael Edwards and Dink
Peters, who posted 14 and eight
points respectively in the final
game of their careers.

When asked about the team's
position in the play-in game of the
tournament and the effect it had
on the pressure put on them,
Meadows said he and his
teammates just came out to play as
hard as they could and looked at
the game as the first of a

something we

The Pirates were tabbed at the
beginning of the season to finish

said the year has been both
disappointing and frustrating.

The Lady Pirates closed their
1997-98 season this weekend after
advancing to the quarterfinal
round of the CAA tournament.
Seeded number eight, ECU's
first matchup was on Wednesday
afternoon against Wiiiiam and
Mary, who ranked ninth at the end
of the regular season.
Sophomore floor leader Misty
Home was absent from the floor,
and was found instead on the
sideline with a casted foot.
Suffering from a recurring ankle
injury, she was not able to
participate at all in the
tournament. With Home out,
teammate Danielle Melvin
stepped up to lead her team with a
career high of 17 points and seven

"1 am trying to be the floor
leader and step up with Misty
out Melvin said. "She is really
vocal, and whenever we are in
trouble, everyone knows to get the
ball to her. I just did my best to
step up
Jen Cox and Cecilia Shinn also
posted scores in double figures for
the Lady Pirates, each with nine,
to lead their team to a 68-59
victory.
ECU was first to put points on
the board with a jump shot by Cox
just 30 seconds into the game. The
Tribe was never able to catch up,
allowing the Lady Pirates a 17-
point advantage by the 6:50 mark
of the first. ECU headed to the
locker room with the lead, 35-26,
after shooting 52 percent from the
floor.
The Lady Pirates did not let up
in the second, improving their
shooting percentage to an
impressive 73 percent, and picking
up a win to eliminate the Tribe
from the tournament and advance
to the quarterfinal round of play.

University of Maryland wins annual Pirate
Classic Softball Tournament, ECU takes third
sports
The Ea�l Carolinian
Second-seeded ECU
defeated m semifinals
Steve losey
ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR
The Terrapins of the University of
Maryland won the Pirate Classic
on Sunday with a 6-1 victory over
the Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens.
The Lady Pirate softball team
came away with third place after a
6-3 loss to Delaware.
The Pirate Classic opened on
Friday morning at 9, when
Maryland took their only loss of
the series from the Towson Tigers,
3-2. The University of Maryland
Baltimore County Retrievers
defeated Delaware, 2-1, with the
help of Jean Salkeld's pitching. At
11 a.m a tiring Towson lost to the
George Mason Patriots, 2-1.
ECU took the Meld for the first
time at 1 p.m. to face Delaware.
Freshman Lisa Paganini had the
first start of her collegiate softball
career. Delaware took the lead
early in the game. In the first
inning they scored two runs and in �
the second they put three across
theplatc.
The Lady Pirates tried their
best to recover the five-run deficit.
They scored one run in the third,
fifth and sixth to bring the score to
5-3, Blue Hens. In the seventh,
the Lady Pirates had a close
opportunity to tie it up. With
runners on first and second and
one out, outfielder Dawn Conrad
hit a blazing grounder. Blue Hen
second baseman Laurie Brosnahan
snagged it on a diving catch and
whipped it to first for the second
out, keeping the runners on
second and third. A strikeout
ended the Lady Pirates' comeback
chances and the game at 5-3.
At the same time at Ross Field,
Maryland shut out UMBC with a
9-0 thrashing, aided by a perfect
game from Terrapins pitcher Kelly
Shipman. UMBC played the next
game at Ross against Mason and
was shut out again, 2-0.
At 3 p.m ECU faced Towson
in their last match of the day. It
was the third game that day for the
Tigers, who were battling fatigue
as well as the Pirates' thundering
bats. The game went scoreless
until the fourth inning when the
Pirate offense hammered three
runs home. In the fifth, five more
runs buried the Tigers, and the
slaughter rule ended the game at
8-0 in five innings.
Paganini received her first win,
making her record 1-1 and held
Towson to four hits. The Pirates
had 12 hits. Shortstop Mamie
Oursler, third baseman Isonette
Polonius, Conrad and first
baseman Christi Vaievich received
two hits each.
The tournament continued
Saturday morning when Maryland
shut out Mason, 8-0. Later that
day, Maryland handed out its
second shutout of the day to
Delaware, 2-0. With only one loss
over the weekend, Maryland was
ranked first seed for the single-
elimination play and didn't play
again until Sunday. Delaware lost
to Towson, 3-1.
The Pirates' game against
UMBC went scoreless until the
fifth inning, when UMBC took a
single run. ECU fought back in the
bottom of the fifth when, with two
outs, Oursler hit a single that
drove in two. UMBC grabbed the
lead back with three runs in the
sixth and won the game, 4-2.
"We just didn't produce
offensively Head Coach Tracey
Kee said. "We had runners on base,
but we couldn't drive them in.
We've got to start doing the little
things better. We can't just watch
Isonette Polonius broke the school
record for most home runs in a
career during this weekend's
tournament.

these close games go by
The Pirates went up against
Mason next and grabbed a decisive
lead in the first two innings. In
both the first and second innings,
ECU scored three runs. Polonius
bagged two of those runs with a
home run into stiff wind during
the second inning It was her third
this season and her 12th career
homer, a new ECU record. A
bobbled popup in center field gave
ECU its seventh run in the fourth
inning. Mason fell to ECU, 7-0.
The Pirates were 2-2 in round
robin play as were Towson, UMBC
and . Mason, but since ECU
allowed the fewest runs, they were
seeded second and didn't play
again until Sunday.
"I'm very proud of the way our
defense played Kee said. "It was
much better than last weekend,
where our defense was very
sketchy
The first round of single
elimination began with UMBC
against Mason and Delaware
against Towson. UMBC beat
Mason, 5-2, to continue to
Sunday's game against Maryland.
Delaware came back from their
earlier defeat to beat Towson, 4-0.
Delaware went on to face ECU in
the semifinals.
UMBC took the lead in the
first on Sunday with two runs. In
the sixth, Maryland tied the game
at two before a single to right gave
them the lead. A two-run double
secured the Terrapins' victory, 5-3.
In the first inning of the ECU-
Delaware game, outfielder Amy
Hooks doubled and scored on a
passed ball. Second baseman
Keisha Shepperson walked and
scored on a single from first
baseman Jennifer Halpern. Hooks
scored again in the second after a
walk. She stole second, third and
then scored on another passed
ball.
ECU wasn't able to hold on to
their lead. In the fifth, with two
outs and only one run on the
board, Delaware had the bases
loaded. A shot into deep left field
cleared the bases and earned a
double. Two more runs in the
seventh ended the Pirates'
chances at the finals.
"We're playing like a roller
coaster Kee said. "We'll run
either hot or cold. Our bats will be
smoking, and then thev'H just
fizzle, we're trying to get some
consistency
The Terrapins attacked the
Blue Hens in the second inning of
the finals. Maryland cleared the
bases with Fawna Lackovic's
double and closed the second with
four runs. In the fourth, a two-RBI
single gave the Terrapins a 6-0
lead. Delaware was only able to get
one runner across, 'and the
Terrapins took the Pirate Classic.

in the stands wearing black and gold
than purple and gold, and there is
an obvious reason why.
Anothet thing I found to be
particularly disturbing during my
time in Richmond was the bad
sportsmanship of some of the
people in the stands. While it has
become almost a tradition to make
fun of the players on the opposing
team or to scream as loud as
possible when they step up for
critical foul shots, the line has to be
drawn somewhere, and
unfortunately, a lot of people fail to
realize that. There were several
spectators sitting directly behind
the press box who were screaming
comments that were not only cruel
and discriminatory but also
embarrassing and inappropriate. Fot
all of the fans out there with an
uncontrollable tempers, you need to
get a grip, because you are doing
nothing but making a fool out of
vourself and your team.
Finally, my heart goes out to
Raphael Edwards, who missed out
on being honored as a first team All-
Conference selection because the
awards banquet was held on
Thursdav evening. Since the Pirates
lost the game on Wednesday night,
the team headed back to Greenville
much earlier than originally
planned, and consequently, Raphael
along with the rest of the team,
missed the banquet. Without
question, the banquet should be
held befote any games ate played so
evervone can be present. For all it is
worth, Raphael, congratulations.
In conclusion of the season, I
would like to congtatulate both the
men's and women's basketball
teams and wish the best of luck to
the four men and two women who
will be graduating. To Raphael
Edwatds, Dink Peters, Othello
Meadows, Tony Parham, Shay
Haves and Jen Cox, each one of you
has made a personal mark in the
history of ECU athletics and will be
missed by all. The leadership and
talent your brought to the Pitate
basketball programs is something
that will be missed by your coaches,
vour teammates and your fans.
Thank you for all that you have
done and good luck.

Seven wins in their last eight games,
an 8-1 home record, 19 hits and 17
runs scored in their last game. I
know to most of you out there this
does not sound like an ECU team.
Coming from Philly, it is really
strange for me to be cheering for a
winning home team. But believe it
or not, the ECU baseball team has
been on a roll, and over the past
week thev have rolled over Radford
College in a four-game sweep and
Youngstown State. By the end of
last Sunday's game, Youngstown
State was on their way back to Ohio
with a 17-11 loss, a 5-2 loss from
Saturday's game and a 9-4 loss from
Fridav.
The Pirates 17-11 win last
Sunday came from big innings in
the bottom of the third and the
bottom of the eighth. The Pirates'
first two runs of the game came
from back- to-back RBI doubles off
the bats of John Williamson and
Randy Rigsby, an RBI single from
Billv Benson and a grand slam home
run to deep center field courtesy of
Chris Shaffer. The grand slam was
measured at approximately 398 feet
by the Kaplan AT&T Tale of the
Tape.
ECU held Youngstown State at
bay for much of the game until the

top of the eighth inning when ECU
gave up seven runs and went
through three pitchers during the
Penguins' only big rally of the game.
Then, in the bottom of the eighth
inning with the Pirates only up one
run, Randy Rigsby hit a two-RBI
triple to give ECU a three-run lead
and put him a home run short of the
cycle. The Pirates went on to score
five more runs and all but end any
chances for a Youngstown State
victory.
"This was a big game for us
senior Randy Rigsby said. "Ml year
we have been struggling offensively;
it felt good to go 4-4 today. It gives
us a lot of confidence going into
Wednesday's game
Freshman John Williamson
delivered an ECU record-tying
thtee doubles in Sunday's game and
another record-tying five hits in
Friday's game as he went 5-5 with
two home runs and 4 RBIs in ECU's
9-4 victory.
"It was just one of those days
were everything goes right
Williamson said after Friday's game.
"I just tried to get on base hoping
that my teammates would hit me in.
I started off the season 0-10 because
I was hitting the ball hatd, only it
was right at people. I'm still hitting
it hard, just better placed
With three more wins under
their belt, the Pirates look to
continue their winning streak as
thev close out their home stand
against Elon on Wednesday and
Georgia Southern with a double
header on Saturday and the third
game of the series on Sunday.
