Despite the fact ECU has had the
highest number of drug violations in
seven years out of a nine-year
peFiod. officials believe this docs
not reflect differential drug usage
on campus.
Dr. Al Matthews, vice chancellor
for student life, relates the high
incidence to the fact that ECl
enforces the rules and regulations to
a greater extent than other
institutions.

"There is probably not a
consistency in enforcement or

Matthews said. "Many universities
have had only two to three
violations over a nine-year period,
and 1 don't believe that
Drug policies established by the
board of governors, which spell out
specific sanctions universities must
take, have been in effect since 1988.
Individuals placed on probation for
marijuana use can lead up to
expulsion from school if involved in
drug trafficking.
"The state system does not have
any tolerance for drug usage
Matthews said.
Most of the drug violation
accounts are male freshman
students who live in the residence
halls.
"We just don't tolerate it in the
residence halls Matthews said.
Matthews feels that the high
incidence of drug violations has no
effect on the university's
reputation.
"People may read the statistics
and see that ECU has a high
incidence may have a negative

"Over the vears. we've released to
the papers that we're verv pleased
with the numbers. Even though the
numbers are high in comparison, it's

Statistics show the grade point
averages of judicated drug abusers
being lower than the overall

involved last vear had a grade point
average collectively of 1.8, where

proportion of them didn't return to

Matthews feels that alcohol
abuse is a bigger problem than drug
abuse. "Alcohol is the most abused
drusjon any campus and in society,
Matthews said. "The abuse of
alcohol, the illegal thums that take-
place and the violence far outweighs
an thing that happens with drug

The Higher Education Research
Institute at the University ot
California in Los Angeles (I CLA)
conducts annual survevs to
freshmen at various two- and four-
vear colleges and universities.
According to UCLA News, this
progression of survevs which began
in 1973, is the nation's longest-
standing and most comprehensive
assessment of student attitudes and
plans. The 1997 survey included
252.082 students at 464 institutions
to be representatives of the 1.6
million students entering college as
first time freshmen last fall.
"We are invited every year to
participate in the survev said Dr.
Kris Smith, director of student life
research, assessment and testing.
The last time ECU participated
in UCLA's national survey was in
1992. but the Department of
Research Assessment and Testing
conduct their own surveys as well.
"Approximately 94 percent of the
1997 freshmen class participated in
our survey, whether it was during
summer orientation or a mail-in
survey which are administered the
first week of school Smith said. "It
gives us a profile of the students
and we also use it survey to
develop programs and services to
meet their needs
Comparing both the I CLA
survev and the First-Year Student
ECl survey, there are many
percentages that are similar in rank
while others do not match up.
According to both surveys, as tar
as academics are concerned, about
half of the freshmen population
anticipate good grades. UCLA
studies show that 49.7 percent
expect to earn a B average in college,
while ECL' studies show that 44
percent of freshmen fall under the
same caiegorv

"The intent this year was to
establish a tradition in the
countdown for the 100th
anniversary said Michael A.
Dorsey, dean of the School of Art

honors the entire university.
Everybody is going to be

Another popular custom that
will be repeated is the Pirate
Parade, an event in which the pep
band marches out of Mendenhall,

The East Carolinian
White House says Iraq may not
have "second chance" for peace
Iraq amid escape
pumhment if complies
WASHINGTON AP) �
President Bill Clinton said Iraq
should be under no illusion" it
would escape severe punishment
if it violated a pledge to permit
unconditional U.N. weapons
inspections.
Aides said Tuesday that meant
military action. On a day in which
the Pentagon announced it was
speeding plans to give anthrax
vaccinations to the 36,000 U.S.
troops in the Persian Gulf, Clinton
praised a U.N. Security Council
resolution endorsing Secretary-
Generai Kofi Annan's agreement
with Iraq on weapons inspections.
The resolution warned of
'severest consequences" if Iraq
failed to comply.
"The government of Iraq
should be under no illusion
Clinton said at the conclusion of a
White House event promoting
tougher laws against drunken
driving. VNThe meaning of
severest consequences' is clear
" It provides authority to act if
Iraq does not turn the
commitment it has now made into
compliance he added. Hinting
strongly that he might feel
compelled to use military force,
Clinton said, "No promise of
peace and no policy of patience
can be without its limits
Other administration officials
were more explicit on the question
of a military option.
"This gives us the green light
to approach our policy of
diplomacy and force and it shows
to the world once again that the
onus of complying with this
agreement is with Iraq U.S.
Ambassador Bill Richardson said.
Even before Annan reached the
accord with Iraq last week, the
Clinton administration maintained
that previous U.N. Security
Council resolutions gave it the
authority to use force against Iraq
to ensure compliance. Most other
Security Council members dispute
that view, and they still question
the American interpretation of
Monday's resolution.
Envoys from many countries,
including longtime U.S. allies, said
Tuesday that only the Security
Council has the authority to
determine whether Iraq has
breached the weapons inspections
deal, and what should be done in
response. Almost alone, Britain
shares the U.S. view.
Before Monday's vote, China's
U.N. ambassador, Qin Huasun,
said Beijing had insisted "that
there must not be any automatic
authorization of the use of force
against in Iraq in this current
resolution
Asked in an interview on NBC's
"Today" show if the resolution
gives the green light for a U.S.
attack, Richardson replied, "The
answer is yes. And we already had
that green light
Clinton called on Iraq to
demonstrate its commitment to
the inspections agreement� a

ECU Police run for the Special Olympics
Torch Rim invokes
200 km enforcement
agencies in state
NICOLE MtRCHISON
STAFF WRITE
In commemoration of this year's
North Carolina Special Olympics,
ECU police will be represented by
two officers in the Torch Run.
The Torch Run is an annual
fund raiser given by North
Carolina law enforcement agencies
that helps to benefit the Special
Olympics.
The purpose is to raise money
for the Special Olympics said
Officer Hayes, one of the two
representatives of the ECU Police
station in this year's Torch Run.
The police station's goal is
$5,000 between now and May 1.
"The department has already
raised about $2,000 said Hayes
,who has been in the event for the
past 2 years.
The ECU police receives
contributions and is raising money
by selling Torch Run t-shirts which
are designed by Glaxo Wellcome
and are $13 at the ECU Police
Department. The runners can
also be sponsored through the
ECU Police Department.
If the ECU police are able to
reach their goal of $5,000 in their
fund raiser they will have a distinct
honor. They will be recognized on
next year's t-shirt.
"The Torch Run involves about
200 law enforcement agencies and
is the largest fund raiser for the
Special Olympics Hayes said.
The ECU Police helps to plans
for this event and also does things
for the charity during the year.
"We raise funds all year round
said Hayes. "Our portion for this
event begins in January and ends
in July
The Torch Run has police
officers from all over North
Carolina who participate in and
run over an area of 2,000 miles.
"The run passes among about
2,500 North Carolina officers
Hayes said.

criticized as weak and unlikely to
achieve U.S. policy goals.
"Iraq must fulfill without
obstruction or delay its
commitment to open all of the
nation to the international
weapons inspectors � any place,
any time, without any conditions,
deadlines or excuses he said.
At the State Department,
spokesman James P Rubin was
asked by a reporter if the Clinton
administration believes military
action would be warranted if Iraq
wavered on inspections.
" We'll make that judgment at
the time and place of our choosing,
but we are making clear the
principle underlying our policy,
which is that a violation of this
agreement is one that will, in our
view, justify the use of military
force Rubin said.
At the Pentagon, spokesman
Kenneth Bacon said, 'We believe
that the U.N. Security Council
resolution allows us to do anything
we need to do to enforce U.N.
Security Council resolutions. And
we've felt that before this
resolution, and we feel it after the
resolution
A CBS News poll indicated
most Americans approve of the
U.N. agreement but doubt that
Iraqi President Saddam Hussein
will keep his promise to allow U.N.
inspectors full access to suspected
weapons sites. Seventy-three
percent of those surveyed favored
the agreement, compared with 19
percent who opposed and 8
percent who didn't know. But 83
percent said Saddam would break
his promise, 8 percent thought he
would keep his word and 9 percent
had no opinion.
Bacon also said Defense
Secretary William Cohen has
decided that the 36,000 U.S.
troops in the Persian Gulf will be
given vaccinations against anthrax,
a deadly biological agent that Iraq
had admitted producing in the
past. U.S. and U.N. officials
believe Iraq may still have some
anthrax stockpiled and may retain
the capability to produce more in
the future.

it is important to keep up-to-date
with political affairs. Most ECU
freshmen feel the same way, with
58 percent who do not consider
themselves affiliated with a party
Another big case study in the
UCLA survey was the 1997
freshmen's decrease in interest in
classes. UCLA studies show that
36 percent of the students said
that they were bored in class and
34.5 percent said they have a
tendency to oversleep and miss
classes.
ECU did not match statistics
with those of the national survey
The majority of the 1997 class are
quite interested in academics and
all other things offered at the
university
"90.1 percent of the students
say it's important to gain a general
education to give themselves a
broader education and become
more well rounded instead of just
receiving vocational training
Smith said.
Abo in the First-Year Student
Survey, 98.7 percent of the
freshmen say that graduating from
college is either their most
important or a very important goal
in their life right now.

Bojangles items confiscated
Officer suspects logped
material stolen
NINA M. DRY
STAFF WRITER
Lane Foushee has been an avid
fan of the restaurant Bojangles and
collectibles relating to it for many
years. However, he didn't think
his hobby would land him in a
court case. Unfortunately for
Foushee, a campus police officer
began to suspect that some of his
treasures were stolen.
Foushee says he and his friends
have been collecting and trading
Bojangles paraphanelia for years.
The trouble began with a
cardboard sign decorated with the
restaraunt's logo that a friend
found beside a dumpster and gave
to him. Foushee said the sign has
been displayed in his Garrett Hall
window a lengthy amount of
time.
"My friends and I have been
collecting Bojangles items since
we were in high school Foushee
said. "I've had this sign in my
window for the last two years. I
can't understand why they're the
campus police making such a big
deal about it now
According to Foushee, Officer
Yousef Sansour of the University
Mice Department came into the
dorm, queried residents as to who
owned the sign and then
approached him, went into his
room and began questioning him.
"I didn't think anything of
letting him Sansour into my
room Foushee said. "I had
nothing to hide
Foushee said that it was then
that Sansour confiscated his
Bojangles belongings, including a
small rug with the Bojangles logo,
and wrote him a citation to be in
court Feb. 26.
Sansour said that he did some
research before confiscating
Foushee's belongings.
"I went to the Bojangles here
in Greenville and the manager
told me that the rug was from the
Research Triangle Park (RTP)
area Sansour said.
Sansour said that after
confiscating the items he then
brought them to the Bojangles in
Greenville to confirm that they
were the items from the RTP
area.
"The rug had the RTP stamp
on it in white letters Sansour
said. "The manager confirmed
this and signed for the items
Foushee said that he and
lawyer Galen Braddy went to
court on the set date but received
a continuance because Sansour
did not attend.
"I am going to call my lawyer to
find out when the court date has
been rescheduled Foushee said.
When asked why he didn't
show for the court date, Sansour
said that he was out of town. He
said that he wrote a letter to the
DA's office saying that he couldn't
make it to the Feb. 26 court date,
and the DA in turn went to the
judge and asked for a continuance.
"It was the DA's responsibility to
get in touch with Foushee to let
him know that the court dates had
been changed Sansour said. The
new date for this case is March 16.
Global emissions may threaten coral reefs
Carbon dioxide
interferes with growth
BRISBANE, Australia (AP)�
Coral reefs around the world are
under threat from global emissions
of greenhouse gases, a group of
scientific experts warned Tuesday.
Rising levels of carbon dioxide
in the atmosphere arc reducing
the ability of coral animals to make
the limestone skeletons that built
reefs, they said.
The warning stems from an
international meeting of marine
experts in Boston last week, which
included scientists from the
Australian Institute of Marine
Science in Townsvillc, the
Australian federal science agency
and the Australian National
University.
It also followed a warning from
the Great Barrier Reef Marine
Park Authority which said last
week bleaching was killing reefs
along 620 miles (1,000 km) of the
Queensland coast.
Australian Institute of Marine
Science principal research
scientist Terry Done said rising
atmospheric carbon dioxide
concentrations increased the
acidity of surface ocean water.
'In the long term it may
interfere with skeleton growth by
reef builders and pose a serious
threat to the sustainability of reefs
world wide Done said.
Reefs might then not be able to
cope with rising sea levels and
become more vulnerable to
cyclones, which are predicted to
increase in some parts of the
world.
Federal atmospheric researcher
Barrie Pittock said the Boston
report was a breakthrough because
it recognized previously
unidentified global effects on an
ocean ecosystem.
The recent Kyoto agreement
on a reduction in carbon dioxide
emissions will have little effect on
the problem, he said.
Last week the Great Barrier
Reef Marine Park Authority said
inshore reefs off Queensland were
being affected by rising water
temperatures, algal blooms caused
by nutrient run-off from the land
and decreasing salinity caused by
increased freshwater flows from
rivers.
Spokesman Craig Sambell said
coral bleaching started six to eight
weeks ago, but concrete evidence
had only just surfaced.
Sambell said bleaching took
place when coral suffered stress
and subsequently lost its color and
v protective elements
Australian Institute of Marine
Science scientist John Benzic said
reefs did not survive in isolation
but depended on the health of
neighboring marine communities.
Bradley Opdyke of Australian
National university said damaged
reefs could not be replanted like
forests.
Big marine ecosystems have
to rely on their own resources to
regenerate and repair
themselves Opdyke said.
Done said coral reef managers
had assumed global climate
change would at worst have a
neutral effect on coral reefs around
the world.
' Our report suggests that
governments, managers and
scientists need to take a hard look
at that assumption he said.
Bodyguard feels guilty for surviving crash that
killed Princess Diana, Riyed, driver Paul
Rees-Jones shocked to
find he was sole
survivor
LONDON (AP) �Trevor Rees-
Jones says he feels guilty about
being the sole survivor of the car
crash that killed Princess Diana,
The Mirror newspaper reported
today.
Rees-Jones, Diana's bodyguard,
was quoted as telling the
newspaper he was "absolutely
devastated" when he learned
about the accident from his
mother while he was recovering in
the same hospital where Diana
died.
"I'm sure that anyone who
survives an accident where people
have died feels a certain sense of
guilt Rees-Jones said. "But in my
case the people who died were
special people. It doesn't seem
right that I should be the only one
who lived
The Mirror interview, which
will continue in Wednesday's
paper, is the most extensive public
comment to date from Rees-Jones,
who was severely injured in the
Aug. 31 crash in Paris that killed
Diana, her companion Dodi Fayed
and chauffeur Henri Paul.
The Mirror said Rees-Jones'
mother told him: "There is no easy
way of saying this, Trevor, but
Diana and Dodi were both killed
in the crash and so was the driver,
Henri Paul. You were the only
survivor
"I was absolutely devastated,
obviously Rees-Jones told the
paper.
"There is no easy way to tell
someone such dreadful news, is
there? It was like a hammer blow
�� I just sat there in total shock
The newspaper did not say
exactly when he was told of
Diana's death, but reported that
he was heavily sedated for 10 days
after the crash and had been taken
off sedation several days before he
was told.
"I felt terrible. It was just so
shocking. I just assumed that
everyone else was OK too. It never
crossed my mind that I was the
only one the newspaper reported
Rees-Jones as saying.
On Monday The Mirror quoted
Rees-Jones as saying Diana was
conscious after the crash and cried
out for Fayed, who was already
dead, and that Paul did not appear
to have been drinking.
The French doctor who treated
Diana as she lay dying in the Pont
de l'Alma tunnel said in November
that she was semiconscious and
did not say "anything precise
Paul was later found to have been
legally drunk.
The bodyguard's remarks are
sensitive because he works for
multimillionaire Mohamed Al
Fayed, father of Dodi, employer of
Paul and owner of the Ritz Hotel,
where Paul was seen drinking
before the crash.
Rees-Jones, 29, a former soldier,
will be questioned again by the
French judge investigating the
accident in the coming weeks, his
lawyer said. But one psychiatrist
interviewed by a British TV
station questioned whether his
testimony would be reliable.
"If the brain is knocked out in
that sort of way, not only is the
forward memory blocked, but the
backward memory too Desmond
Kelly told Sky TV satellite news.
Rees-Jones' psychiatric and
medical treatment have been paid
for by al Fayed, who also arranged
The Mirror interview, rival
newspapers said. In an interview
in The Mirror in February, al
Fayed, who owns Harrods
department store in London, said
that he was "99.9 percent certain"
of a conspiracy to kill Diana and
Dodi, and that the two were
engaged. He has offered no
independent evidence to support
his claims.
Al Fayed is a controversial figure
in Britain for his claims and has
admitted paying lawmakers to
raise issues in Parliament. Under
British law, paying the legislators
as he did was not illegal nor was it
bribery.
He was questioned by police
Monday on charges of theft and
criminal damage after allegations
that Harrods employees tampered
with a safety deposit box at the
store belonging to a business rival.

5 newest big bad bust.
Unlike the last concert that no one got to go to, A Tribe Called Quest, who had an "out"
clause in their contract, Apple wasn't under any contract at all. Hmmm.
It appears, however, that this is just one more slap in the face by fate, of a student union
that does its best to provide campus with events that are exciting, and worth going to. If it's
I not one thing, it's another. No ticket sales so no performer, and now lots of ticket sales, but
I no songbird to serenade us.
Though it seems rather odd that Apple was to sign her contract with the university upon
.iter arrival in Greenville, it is true that the Student Union had been trying to negotiate a
�suitable written relationship with Apple and her booking agents since before Christmas
J break That given, they took a remarkably large risk in making concert preparations on what
boiled down to a good faith agreement.
The good news is that Apple and her management have promised to refund the portions
Jof the nearly $5000 the university spent in huge concert preparations that are from agencies
Jto which ECU is contractually bound. At least there will be money in the pot to prepare for
Uhc next big event that might or might not show up.
t It would be a shame if students and patrons who were enthused about Apple and Tribe
�decided never to trust the Student Union to actually get a big act to appear on campus when
tthey say they will. Yes, they went out on a limb, with the floating contract deal, but it still
Jsays something for the courage and drive of the group that they worked for so long to get

Since the concert has been killed forever, because no one knows why Apple canceled or
when she might be able to shadow box her way back down to our part of the world, students

because that plays into
an atrocious
generalization game
us past year there has been an
jnormous media blitz defaming
jntversity Greek systems. This
nation has taken place not only
East Carolina University but also
the national scene � appearing
the news, in newspapers, in
zincs and even on talk shows.

I of course the system as a whole.
The disdain expressed toward
eks is the inevitable result of the
st assumptions and broad
rncralizations that have been
I on a relatively minute number
questionable incidents. When any
llcged incident occurs, it is
reported whether or not it is indeed
factual because the sensationalism
of Greek scandal must be and, in
fact, is too hard for the media to
resist. Consequentially, stories are
funneled to the public that portray a
horrible image of the average
fraternity and sorority when in
actuality the story is most likely
biased or just an outright
unsubstantiated lie.
It is not fair to claim "Greeks are
good and benevolent" or "Greeks
are bad and criminal" because that
plays into an atrocious
generalization game. Basically,
Greeks arc recognized and
highlighted for their shortcomings
simply because groups (like
fraternities and sororities) are easy
to identify and because of a
perpetual need to blame collegiate
moral and academic ills on
something other than the
individual.
The common stereotype of the
heavily drinking, academically
apathetic and sexually aggressive
"frat" boy or the shallow, vain, and
supercilious sorority girl is not only
extremely inaccurate but it also not
a fair assumption. No one can
justifiably condemn or commend
the Greek system without- some
amount of first-hand knowledge or a
large acquaintance with its
members.
Most of the erroneous depictions
given by the press are a stretch and
the result of an obvious and quite
ridiculous attempt to find
something bad. The critiques are
very comparable to those preachers
who used to play Led Zeppelin

Fiona Apple lived up to what she is
In the wake of Fiona's
fraudulent behavior toward
us, the students of ECU, it's
hard to find a ray of sincerity
and hope. I suppose worse
things coultfve happened; we
could have been stood up by
someone with real talent.
I simply don't care about not caring.
The dying words of a cynic? An
adage of the pessimist? Perhaps.
I am an opinion columnist and
opinion columnists tend to, as a
breed, envelope themselves in
cheap cynicism � kenned insight
and revulsion at the gross
malignancies that pass for everyday
life, We satirize with clever sarcasm
and wit the horrendous misconduct
of those in positions of power. How
"they" are infringing on "our" rights.
How we should stand up and fight
back. How we "deserve" (demand, I
might say) justice. It is ours damn it!
Now give us our money back and
sue her for all she's worth!
We, as readers, have come to
accept this � even expect it. We
sneer and snicker at the drollery of
those pundits who castigate the
inveiglers and Fiona's of American
society.
In a week where bitching is sure
to be prominent, I'd like to take a
moment to bitch about bitching.
It may be helpful to examine why
you want to bitch. Is it warranted? Is
it cathartic? Are you bitching just for
the sake of bitching? And (very
importantly) can you bitch
property? I've seen some people
who make an art form of bitching
(i.e. you might just want to explore
and practice your bitching range
before you seek to do it publicly).
Once you've examined the
motives and skills of your bitching
capacity you might want to make
sure you are bitching about
something (heaven forbid bitching
about nothing). Take Fiona Apple;
we all hate her for not showing up. It
seems a sure motive to bitch about
how much of a bitch she is. How big
the .bitch's britches have gotten.
How a Grammy award can go to a
person's head. How she epitomizes
the phrase "sell-out
But simply bitching about it ain't
gonna do a damn thing. You've got
to up her ante. bu've got to raise
bitchdom to the next power. Don't
let her inflated ego frustrate you to
the point of mediocre bitching �
pour it on! Climb inside of the gripe,
the complaint, the Ditch, Fiona
Apple, and realize she's an ignorant
priss that doesn't deserve to even be
called a muscician.
Believe in justice and freedom
and pour it on. You know you have it
in you, so let it be heard.
In the wake of Fiona's fraudulent
behavior toward us, the students of
ECU, it's hard to find a ray of
sincerity and hope. I suppose worse
things could've happened; we could
have been stood up by someone
with real talent. But perhaps d�t's

satanic lyrics. They may or may not
have heard those evil lyrics, but one
has to wonder about the mentality
of a preacher who sits around and
plays Led Zeppelin records
backwards all day. Likewise, one has
to wonder about people who have
nothing better to do than defame a
collegiate organization (which has
numerous benefits) and then
conclude This is what is wrong
with college today" It is absolutely
ludicrous.
A study conducted by the
University of Missouri provides a
much different view on what a
Greek organization in fact produces.
Four hundred thirty-five of the
Fortune 500 companies have CEOs
that were members of a fraternity.
Only two Supreme Court justices
were not Greek (both women were
active in a sorority in college).
Approximately 92 percent of
senators and 89 percent of
representatives in the House were
also affiliated with a fraternity or
sorority. These statistics do not
necessarily prove all people who
filtrate out of the Greek system are
enormously successful, but it does
serve as an actual representative of
the result of the values instilled in a
fraternity or sorority.
There are, like with any
organization, faults within
fraternities and sororities, but there
are also numerous benefits that are
the resultant of membership. The
undue ridicule Greeks receive does
not help but rather it hinders the
development and materialization of
the benefits and goals that the
organizations strive so adamantly to
achieve.

Treat DeMarco fairly before taking tenure
I would like to express my sheer
shame at the ECU Department of
Communication Sciences and
Disorders in their dealings with Dr.
Sal DeMarco. After over 10 years of
service to the department, the
university and the community, it
seems to me that DeMarco deserves
fair and just treatment concerning
the allegations of inappropriate
behavior made against him by others
in the department.
After over 10 years of service to
the university, Dr. DeMarco, who is
affected by multiple sclerosis, is
possibly going to be stripped of his
tenure and his reputation and
essentially put out on the street
without retirement or other benefits
he has earned. Should he not have
anything to show for these years of
service?
I understand that the university
and the department's concern over
Dr. DeMarco's alleged "outbursts"
during departmental meetings and
his anger directed toward certain
other members of the faculty.
However, as a graduate of the ECU
Communication Sciences and
Disorders master's program, I also
understand his frustration of trying
to survive in this department.
The values and goals of the
department often times arc out of
touch with the most important
elements of patient care and serving
the community. Instead, the
purpose of the department seems
more toward serving itself and
certain individuals who seek control
over the rest of its members.
Dr. DeMarco was one of the
professors at ECU's SLAP
department who I looked up to
because of his values of putting the
patients and the students' best
interests first. In fact, Dr. DeMarco
is one professor I have contacted
several times since I have been out
of school for practical and reliable
advice concerning patient care.
Anytime I have needed him he has
always been prompt in returning my
phone calls and willing to help in
anyway he could.
Unfortunately, I cannot say this
attitude has been true of any of the
other members of the faculty of this
department. Other members of the
faculty of this department, while I
was at ECU, seemed always
unwilling to help students and
bothered when they were
approached by students with
questions. As I remember one
instructor saying, "I'm tired of
students. I have been dealing with
students all day Of course I don't
seek this person's opinion
concerning patient care.
This department has been
working toward developing its
doctorate program over the past few
years. The direction of the
department has been slanted
toward this program and further
away from the values of good patient
care. This apparently was not one of
the concerns and sources of
professional frustration for Dr. Sal
Demarco with the department.
Generally, in the field of speech
therapy, a person with a doctorate
teaches university students an
does research. They do not do day-
to-day patient care. It is a highly
exceptional person who has Ji
doctorate in speech therapy who is
able to stay in touch with what k
requires to go out in the community
and practice speech therapy. In my
opinion, Dr. DeMarco is one djf
these exceptional people. Perhaps
because of this perspective, Dt
DeMarco collided so strongly witfc
the other members of h$
department.
Before a hasty judgment is made
against the personal am
professional integrity of
DeMarco, I hope the university wil
carefully consider the consequences
of their actions on this man's life, as
well as in the field of speed
therapy. Thank you.

Castration not medically sound option
This letter is in response to Britt
Honeycutt's "Take away a rapist's
toy I do not wish to take a position
against Ms. Honeycutt.
I agree that society and the
judicial system need to take a
stronger stance with rapists.
However, I do wish to clarify that
castration is the removal of the
testicles, not the penis. Ms.
Honeycutt's point is totally
obscured by her erroneous
assumption.
Further, her idea is not medically
sound. Please remember that the
penis is not only a sexual organ. It
would be far more effective � and
not inhumane � to suggest that

ECU has evolved since Dr. Irons
began working here as a team
fihysician and later in the infirmary.
rortically, his two sons, Tom and
Ben, both came to be employed by
the university. Tom, also a
physician, now works in the School
of Medicine. He came to ECU in
1981 after working in a very
demanding medical practice in
Raleigh.
Their family has a very strong
commitment to God and to each
other. The sons, like their father,
saw that their careers were
overpowering their family lives.
Both of the sons took jobs at ECU
to devote more time to their
families.
He instilled his strong faith into
his family. "Everything that we
have comes from God. Family is
extremely important Dr. Irons
said. "It was a pleasure to work

the evenings, his patients would

Ben Irons said.
"I think that from early on in
life, right after college, he
recognized what the Lord wanted
him to do. He worked diligently to
help others. He still will help
others even in his retirement. The
power of a good life came from
God, and in this time of transition.

In honor of Women's History
Month, Dr. Elizabeth Lapovsky
Kennedy, internationally known
specialist on the history of lesbian
communities, will give a lecture
this week centered around the
transition from a lesbian
relationship to a heterosexual
marriage.
The lecture, entitled "I don't
envy you having to sort this mess
out after I'm gone: Transitions
from Living as a Lesbian to Living
asa Married Woman�Buffalo, New
York, 1942 will take place Friday,
March 6 at 4 p.m. in Room. 2014 of
the General Classroom Building.
The subject of the lecture is a
90-year-old upper-class woman who
lived as a lesbian schoolteacher in a
small town in South Dakota and
Central New York during the 1920s
and 30s, as a married woman in
Buffalo, NY from 1942 to 1983, and
then as a lesbian again.
According to Kennedy, the
lecture aims to contribute to the
way we understand the changing
forms of gender and sexuality in the
20th century by examining a
specific class setting at a particular
moment.
"She's a compelling, warm and
witty speaker said Lillian
Robinson, Professor of English and
Women's Studies, who coordinated
the event.

Dark City not quite an epic
MARK BRETT
SENIOR WRITER
7 OUT OF 10
I don't often use the word epic to
describe a film. An epic should be
some huge, sweeping thing
chronicling the fall of empires or the
changing tides of history, and most
films don't fit the bill. Star Wars is an
epic. Gone With the Wind is an epic.
Dark City, the latest opus from Crow
director Alex Proyas, wants to be an
epic, too. Unfortunately, it falls a bit
short.
That's not to say that it's a bad
film. Far from it. Dark City is moody
and engrossing, a fine psychological
science fiction movie. It's well-
written, the acting is nice and it's a
visual feast as well. But as an epic, it
leaves a bit to be desired.
Luckily, it doesn't start off that
way. The story opens on our lead
character, John Murdoch (Rufus
Sewell), who wakes up at the scene
of a brutal murder. Though
stricken with amnesia,
Murdoch appears to have killed
the prostitute lying in his bed,
and goes on the run. Soon, of
course, we find out that these
creepy white-skinned guys in
trenchcoats called The
Strangers are screwing around
with people's memories, and
that they're somehow tied in
with Murdoch's dilemma.
And so the mystery unfolds,
with the real story being doled
out in bits and pieces,
fragments of memory and
cryptic advice from people who
know what's really going on.
Proyas shows considerable
restraint, trailing the story out
slowly and letting the film move
at its natural pace. Through
most of its length, Dark City is
fascinating. Like any good
mystery, figuring out the plot is
half the fun.
Then there's all the eye
candy. Even for those who find the
film too slow-moving, Proyas and his

special effects team have provided a
lot to look at. The city (strangely
never named) is an art deco gothic
monstrosity, filled with dark,
looming buildings and neon. The
Strangers' subterranean lair is
likewise brooding, with lots of
weird grilrwork and a giant, near-
featureless face that splits in half to
reveal a giant clock.
Shadows abound everywhere; I
don't think I've seen a film this dark
since Seven. More than simply
playing into the film's name, the
darkness heightens the suspense
and the sheer creep-out tenor of
the Strangers. It also allows, I'm
sure, for a few flaws in the more
elaborate effects, but saying
anything more about those would
give away far too much of the plot.
Let's just say that the most
impressive effects shots,
refreshingly, didn't make their way
into the commercials, and leave it
at that.
I only wish the film itself could
have kept its secrets a little better.
The story unfolds, as I said, at a
good, slow pace until about two-
thirds of the way through. Then we
get a scene I like to refer to as the
Expository Boat Ride. Murdoch is
riding in a rowboat with police
Inspector Bumstead (William Hurt
and the mysterious Doctor
Schreiber (Kefer Sutherland) wherf
Schreiber decides to spill forth the
whole plot of the movie to date.
In a different movie I wouldn't
mind so much, but Schreiber
doesn't say anything a relatively
intelligent audience wouldn't have
already figured out. There I was�
actively involved in the story1,
working things out and eager for the
next revelation, when th�j
Expository Boat Ride has to come
along and ruin it ail.
"That scene was for the stupid
people one of my friends said later,
and I can only agree. I'm sure there
are people who just won't get it, and
the Expository .Boat Ride serves to)
catch them up on things before thi
film swings into high gear. I just felj
like my intelligence was being

creating a classic road song that

your brain pondering along with
Shain trying to guess the weight of

A true highlight of talent on this
jrecord is the group's ability to
harmonize vocally. The influences

In other words, it is interesting

"Desert Flower" is the other folk-
laden piece adding its Grateful
Dead melody, and Peter, Paul and
Mary harmonies. Quite happy.
Wake is a slow paced
album. It offers a few well-written
countryrock and folk songs. There
are only a few good tunes because
most of them are excellent.
Shain is a master of writing
heartbroken lyrics accompanied by
slow, haunting music and
sometimes up-beat melodies.
"Forty Days" is one of the most
upbeat songs on the record. Shain
has his mind on a past love; he has
been drinking and he wonders
where she is. This track floats on
the waves of the steel guitar and is
moved by interchanging guitar and
harmonica solos.
A true gem that rests within this
album is "Jump into the Sun Cello

Good or bad, 80's culture remains with us
This is the
column where
we focus on the
stuff we miss and
the stuff you missed. We
will examine books,
albums, television shows
(and pink dress shirts) we
feel deserve further
exploration. The stuff we
dug back in the day
late February. After several months
of watching the group's video of
"Am I Dreaming" on BET's
Midnight Love and listening to the
song on the radio, it was thought
that the album would not
disappoint those who iocd "Am I
Dreaming
Sure enough, it did not
disappoint.
You can tell after listening to the
first couple of tracks the target
audience of the album. The album
is geared towards those who are
seeking a romantic interlude. It
nicely sets the mood for the fellas
who are looking to spend some
time with their lady. It also works
for the ladies who are trying to
throw (ahem) subtle hints at their
man. Picture it. The lights are low,
a bottle of Dom Perignon is chilling
in the ice bucket, the CD is playing
in the background you know
where this is going.
The first single off the album,
"Am I Dreaming is one of the best
tracks on the album. Featuring
Xscape and the album's executive
producer, Keith Sweat, the song is
sentimental in that the man is so
much in love that he thinks it's all a
dream. Xscape adds a nicely added
feminine touch to the track and
Keith well, he's Keith. (Singone
song without saying "baby Keith!

very obvious, is "Come With Me a

The only bad thing about the
album is that it's geared for

no mood to set, the CD collects

Overall, the group's album is
very good. Even though the topic is
basically the same throughout, they
stick to what they know and they

SENIOR WRITER
Those of you who are avid
readers of TEC, or maybe
were just curious about
the picture of Fbison,
probably read an
article 1 wrote
about the
resurgence of glam
rock. Shortly after
the article ran, I
started receiving
feedback from
people stuck in the
eighties. Now let's
face it, we all know
someone who loves the
eighties, but I personally
never realized just how much of
a hold the decade had on our society
until recently. It all started with a
simple email.
The day after the glam rock
article ran, I received a message from
an ECU employee asking if I wrote
for the paper. After confirming that I
was who she was looking for, she
emailed me back to confess her
secret life. It seems that the eighties
ended too soon for this person. To
quote her email, "Naked Eyes,
Duran Duran, Rick Springfield, I got
it. Wang Chung, Culture Club. Big
M, I got it. I was one of those
weirdos that stayed up all night
watching MTV"
I shared this letter with a friend
who laughed and said, "Yeah, I've got
all of Rick Springfield's stuff too
My God! ALL of his stuff?! What
else was there besides "Jessie's Girl
Then I remembered my
neighbor. She is the only person I
have ever known who has owned not
only the Sounds of the Seventies
collection, but the Sounds of the
Eighties as well. We're talking over
ten CD's chock full of hairspray and
synthesizers.
I had to investigate further. As an
experiment, I took my eighties tape
(a mix tape I made from the
aforementioned Sounds of the Eighties
collection) and started playing it lor
various people in my car. No other
musical choice has ever been so
widely enjoyed. Usually, I adjust the
music for the people riding w ith me
in an attempt to find common
musical ground. With the eighties
tape every passenger was happy.
If you need further proof of our
infatuation with the eighties, look
around. ECU's own radio station has
a weekly retro show and a local hit
radio station has a retro lunch hour
every day. Recent movie hits have
included eighties songs as well.
Grosse Pointe Blank and The Wedding
Singer have both had their retro
soundtracks experience huge sales.
The eighties fascination is not
limited to music either. The Dukes of
Hazzard have experienced renewed
life on TNN, B.J. and the Bear runs in
syndication and, occasionally, one
can even find a rerun of WKRP in
Cincinnati. Of course, watching these
shows makes us wonder why we ever
watched them in the first place, but
we still find ourselves glued to the
reruns.
Eighties trends are coming back
slowly, but surely as well. A few
scattered girls are showing up with
crimped hair, and guys who never
changed their eighties' haircuts
aren't ridiculed quite as much as
before.
.All this leaves us with a decision
to make. We, as a society, are at the
flight or fight stage of handling
stress. Do we accept the eighties in
our lives or do every living thing
possible to make them go away?
Then again, is there anything we can
do to make them go away? Would life
be tolerable without watching The
Breakfast Club ever again? Could we
do without the Bangles?
I think the important message
here is that we learn from our past.
Enjoy the good, but get rid of the
bad. For example,the first guy to
wear pink dress shirts as casual wear
should be shot as a message to the
rest of us. Some things really are
better left in the past.

The Lady Pirates tennis team
recovered from their losses against
UNC-Charlotte and Davidson
College last week with an
impressive 7-2 victory over Coastal
Carolina on Saturday.
"This game should have put us
back on track junior Anne Svac
said. "Coastal Carolina isn't a bad
team, but we knew that we could
definitely beat them when we
walked out there
The game was decided after
five of the six singles matches were
over. While No. SGina MacDonald
was losing her first set 3-7 in
tiebreak against Kacy Gibson, the
other five singles matches were
already won for ECU.
No. 1 Svae dominated Jenny
Clack during the whole game and
won 6-2,6-2.
"I'm very satisfied with my
game today Svae said.
Other Pirates posting singles
wins include sophomore Asa
Ellbring at No. 2, senior Mona Eek
at No. 3, sophomore Michelle
Martin at No. 4 and junior
Catherine Morgan at No. 6.
Martin got mixed up in some
long rallies but finally came out as
a 6-4, 6-4 winner over Erin
Whitlock.
Eek pulled up her best game for
ECU so far in this season and
overplayed Jaime Mason 6-1, 6-1
with some high-speed forehand
winners. Unfortunately, she also
pulled her groin muscle
in that game and couldn't
play the doubles game.
"Don't worry, fll be all
right for the next game
on Thursday Eek said.
The Lady Pirates will
play the Camels from
Campbell today at 2 p.m.
"We definitely gained
a lot of confidence with
the game, but we will

think we can win against
Campbell, but it will be
tough and the people will
see some good matches
Ellbring had to play
with a taped wrist after
she hurt it during
practice using a racket
other than the one she is
used to.
"Asa (Ellbring played

The teams played
three doubles matches.
Ellbring and Martin
played as ECU's No. 1

The Pirate golf team will head to
Fripp Island, S.C. for the Ben
HoganFripp Island Invitational
this weekend. It will be the team's
first tournament play since fall.
The good weather lately has
helped the team prepare, but they
won't know if they're ready until
they hit the links.
Sometimes you can play well
in practice, but really mess up in
tournaments Head Coach Kevin
Williams said. "That's been our
main problem in the past
For each NCAA tournament,
only five out of the 10 team players
make the trip. Williams and his
staff have been able to spend a
great deal of time this off-season
deciding who they want to send to
each tournament. This weekend
the five who will be going arc
sophomores Brian Crawford,
Shane Robinson and Marcus
Miller, junior Daniel Griffis and
senior Kevin Miller.
Both Kevin and Marcus Miller
(of no relation), had standout
seasons in the fall. K Miller will
be returning as the team's co-
captain, with a 75.6 stroke average.
He was also named as a 1997
GCAA Ail-American scholar and
GTECosida academic All-District
III.
M; Miller will return with the
team's lowest stroke average of
74.1. "Marcus could get a bid to
the NCAA Invitational, or go to
regionals this year if he plays to his
potential Williams said.
The Pirates carry a 99-67-3 win-
loss-tie record from the 96-97
season in to this spring. They will
hope to improve last year's record,
and are very optimistic about their
chances starting this weekend.
"I feel like we are a better team
this season. The only trick is,
we're playing tougher opponents
than we have before Williams
said.
The Ben HoganFripp Island
Invitational has
traditionally been a
friendly tournament
to past Pirate teams.
The squad won the
event in '89 and '92,
tough to do
considering there are
usually at least 14
schools vying for the
number one spot.
This weekend will be
no different, as the
Pirates will face up to
19 different teams
over a three day long
competition.

Well, it is really true; the ECU

than because they have beaten a

ECU defeated the Fighting

fourth consecutive victory.
"I was trying to hit it on the
right side of the field Williamson
said. "My main concern was
scoring the man on third. I was just
trying to hit a ground ball or
something in the air that he could
tag up on and come in and go into
extra innings
Aside from Williamson's game-
winning home run, a 2-4
performance and three RBl's,
senior Randy Rigsby also put one
out of the park in the bottom of
the eighth inning to bring the
Pirates within two runs. Rigsbv

Josh Bucy came in to the game in

striking out three batters.
"The guy who won the ball
game for us was Josh Bucy coming

Coach Keith LeClair said after the
game.
ECU had a 2-1 lead most of the

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) �
It's payback time for Scott Rolen,
who now can afford to do so
thanks to a new, four-year, $10
million contract.
Last year's NL Rookie of the
Year will treat his parents, who
have "gone without so we could
go with to an early retirement.
"For the last 15 years, they've
wanted to retire and go to
Florida Rolen said. ' 'This gives
me a chance to help the people
who brought me where I am right
now
His parents, both teachers,
shouldn't have any financial
worries. Rolen will make $750,000
this year, $1 million next vear,
$2.75 million in 2000 and $5.5
million in 2001.
He probably could have gotten
even more. After all, AL Rookie of
the Year Nomar Garciaparra
reportedly is considering a seven-
year, $30 million deal with the Red
Sox. Rolen said that didn't matter.
My dream was to play major
league baseball. I lived that
dream. Who'd have thought there
would be more to it?" he said.
'The Phillies have shown me the
greatest respect by committing to
me for four years
Coming from some athletes, it
might have sounded phony.
Coming from Rolen, who shows a
maturity well beyond his 22 years,
the words rang true.
Rolen's refreshing attitude, and
his splendid baseball skills,
convinced the Phillies the third
baseman was worth making a long-
term commitment to, something
the organization hasn't done much
with young players.
But general manager Ed Wade
said the Phillies, who have had
one winning season in the last ten,
are committed to rebuilding
through their farm system. Rolen
is the best player the organization
has produced in years.
' When you begin to build,
you build with cornerstones
Wade said.
"There's no doubt in our
mind that Scott Rolen has the
ability and the character to be a
franchise cornerstone
Rolen, whose 130 at-bats in
1996 were the maximum
allowable for him to be considered
a rookie in 1997, looked like a star
in the making last year.
The first Phillic to win Rookie
of the Year honors since Dick Allen
in 1964, he led National League
rookies in 11 categories, including
average (.283), homers (21), RBIs
(92), runs (93), hits (159), total
bases (263), extra base hits (59)
and slugging percentage (.469).
The Phillies and Rolen's agent,
Seth Levinson, had initial contract
talks in November but serious
negotiations began Sunday night.

Sprewell involved in
freeway accident
PLEASANT HILL, Calif. (AP) �
Former Golden State Warrior
Latrell Sprewell lost control of his
speeding car, causing another
vehicle to flip onto its roof and
injure two people inside, according
to officials.
�prcwell, fired by the Golden

the NBA for his attack on coach
RJ. Carlesimo, was not injured in
the accident Sunday morning
about 80 miles northeast of San
Francisco.
No tickets were issued, and the
accident was under investigation,
Highway Patrol officer Cliff
Kroeger said on Monday.
According to Kroeger,
SprewelPs car was traveling south
on Interstate 680 at 75 mph. After
changing lanes into an exit-only
lane and trying to return to the
freeway, his 1997 Mercedes SL-
600 struck sand barrels, hit a wall
and collided with a Toyota Corolla,
flipping it over, Kroeger said.

Miami of Ohio coach Charlie Coles
remained in serious but stable
condition today, three days after
suffering a heart attack during a
Mid-American Conference

20 minutes reviving Coles on the
floor before he was transported to
Branson Methodist Hospital. He
remained in the hospital's coronary
care unit today, spokeswoman Jana
Verschoof said.
Coles, 56, met Sunday with his
assistants and team captains
Damon Frierson and Wally

player pleads no contest
to assault
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP)�
The second of four former Texas
Christian football players accused
of beating a student outside a
downtown Fort Worth bar has
pleaded no contest to an
aggravated assault charge.
James Porter McFarland, 22,
entered the plea Monday under an
agreement with prosecutors. State
District Judge Don Leonard
scheduled sentencing for April 13.
Ryan Hucy Tucker, 22, now an
offensive lineman for the National
Football League's St. Louis Rams,
pleaded no contest to the same
charge last week. He is scheduled
to be sentenced April 6. They
were charged with aggravated
assault causing serious bodily
injury in the May 19 attack on
Bryan Boyd. The 23-year-old
student suffered a fractured skull
and partial facial paralysis in the
fight.

Arizona Republic of the talks.
There is no formal plea
agreement, said Charles Lauer,
Joseph Mangiamele's attorney.
However, there are negotiations
going on.
Mclnerney hiring
completes Oregon State
coaching staff
CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) �Former
Southern Cal assistant Jeff
Mclnerney was hired Monday as
linebackers coach at Oregon State.
Oregon State head coach Mike
Riley and Mclnerney both were
assistants at USC two years ago.
Riley was the Trojans' offensive
coordinator before coming to
Corvallis a year ago.
Mclnerney was defensive line
coach for USC the past two
seasons but lost his job when head
coach John Robinson was fired.
In his two years with the
Trojans, USC led the Pac-10 in
rushing defense.
At Oregon State, Mclnerney
replaces James West, who resigned
to return to his home in Houston.
Before going to USC, Mclnerney,
37, was an assistant at Duke,
Georgia Southern, UTEP and Troy
State. He was a three-year
letterman as a linebacker at
Slippery Rock before a knee injury
ended his playing career.
nationally televised home game
against the San Antonio Spurs.
Only 11 of Portland's remaining
25 games arc against opponents
with a winning record. Twenty of
the teams are in the Western
Conference. The Blazers are 21-11
against Western Conference foes.
And 12 of the games are against
NBA doormats Denver, Dallas,
ncouver. Golden State,
Sacramento and the Los Angeles
Clippers. If Portland could sweep
those games, it would need to go
just 4-9 in the others to match last
season's record of 49-33.
Then again, the Blazers have
struggled against bad teams at
times this season.
Beavers sign White,
stealing him from
Michigan State
CORVALUS, Ore. (AP) Jason
White, an ail-American offensive
lineman at Diablo aJley College
who originally said he would
attend Michigan State, has signed
a letter of intent to play for Oregon
State, coach Mike Riley
announced Monday.
The 6-foot-5,315-pound White
signed with Michigan State in
December during the early signing
G:riod for junior college players,
owever, he did not received his
associate of arts degree from
Diablo Valley the following
quarter, so his letter became
invalid and he was free to sign with
another school.
PrepStar Magazine named
White a first-team JG ail-American
last fell following his sophomore
season. SuperPrep magazine rated
him the 54th-bcst junior college
player in the country.
At Diablo Valley, White's
offensive line coach was Pete
Steffen, who played at Oregon
State.
"He has very quick feet and he
was a real rock for us at left
tackle Diablo head coach Ralph
Depew said. "As good as he was for
us, I think he has a tremendous
future ahead of him at Oregon
State. He has not come close to
reaching his potential, and with his
size and quickness, his upside is
unlimited.
In addition to Michigan State
and Oregon State, White visited
Indiana, Pittsburgh and UNLV
White's signing completes
Riley's recruiting class. The class
includes eight junior college
transfers and 14 high school
players.
Blazers return from
strange trip to face
Phoenix Suns
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) � After
a bizarre road trip that featured
the best and worst of times, the
Portland Trail Blazers arc back
home tonight to face the Phoenix
Suns.
The Blazers will try to shake off
a strange trip that began with an
impressive victory over the mighty
Bulls in Chicago, and followed
with a 124-59 toss at Indiana, the
second-biggest blowout in NBA
history.
Portland capped it off with a
102-101 loss at Boston Sunday,
rallying from 25 points down in the
fourth quarter then losing it when
Rasheed Wallace purposely fouled
Antoinc Walker, who made one of
two free throws.
The Blazers arc shooting for a
fast finish, like the 20-5 run they
put together a year ago.
Portland plays just two games in
the next seven days. After
tonight's contest, the Blazers don't
play again until Sunday afternoon's

consecutive b-ball crown
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Oregon

Oregon City, which was crowned
national champion the past two
seasons by USA Today. With
starters Ashley Smith and Brianne
Meherry gone from that team and
starting for NCAA Division I
schools, the Pioneers weren't
unbearable this year
They even lost twice to Oregon
opponents, but behind Stanford-
bound star forward Lindscy
Yamasaki, they regrouped to claim
another Three Rivers League title
and finish with a 20-4 record.
Westview (24-1) opens play
Wednesday at 8:45 p.m. against

Notre Dome hires
Stanford's Borbely as
offensive line coach
SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP)
Notre Dame has hired Dave
Borbely, Stanford's offensive line
coach the past three years, as the
Irish's new offensive line coach.
Borbely's hiring, which was
announced Monday, will allow
Irish offensive coordinator Jim
Colletto to concentrate on that
role. Colletto, who coached the
Notre Dame offensive line in
1997, will tutor the Irish tight ends
this year
Borbely, a 38-year-old
Hammond, Ind native, joined
Stanford's staff in January 1995,
helping the Cardinals cam liberty
and Sun Bowl invitations following
the 1995 and 19 seasons.
"Dave Borbely has done an
outstanding job at Stanford we
witnessed that firsthand last fall in
Palo Alto. He'll be a significant
addition to what we're doing
offensively Irish football coach
Bob Davie said.
Stanford downed Notre Dame
33-15 on Oct. 4.
Prior to his tenure at Stanford,
Borbely coached Tulane's
offensive line from 1992-94 and
was offensive line coach at Rice
from 1986-89.
Borbely, a 1981 DePauw
graduate, was a graduate assistant
at Evansville from 1981-82.
In a related move, Irish
recruiting coordinator Bob Chmiel
has been tapped to take an
administrative role in the Notre
Dame football office.
Chmiel will continue to direct
all administrative aspects of the
Irish recruiting process, in addition
to handling a wide range of other
duties in conjunction with head
coach Bob Davie and the Notre
Dame football program.

Sarkinnen, former
Ohio State
assistant, dead
sports
The East Carolinian
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) �
Esco Sarkkinen, an All-America
football player and longtime
assistant coach at Ohio State, has
died. He was 79.
Sarkkinen, an assistant with the
Buckeyes from 1946-78, died
Saturday at Riverside Methodist
Hospital in Columbus. Hospital
security Lt. David Lyons said
Sarkkinen was brought the
hospital Friday and was released
later in the day. He returned
Saturday and died about 8 p.m
Lyons said.
Lyons did not know the cause
of death and said no other
information was available.
Sarkkinen lettered with the
Buckeyes from 1937-39 and was an
All-American on the 1939 Big Ten
championship team. As an
assistant coach, Sarkkinen helped
guide Ohio State to Associated
Press national championships in
1954 and 1968.
"He was a big, big Ohio State
man we'll miss tremendously
said Associate Athletic Director
Archie Griffin, who played at Ohio
State from 1973-76 and won the
Heisman Trophy twice. "Coach
Sark was instrumental in my being
recruited to Ohio State
Sarkkinen stayed in Columbus
and remained active with Buckeye
football after retiring in 1978,
Griffin said.
"Coach Sark was asked to speak
on special occasions. He was a big
supporter and a big fan Griffin
said.
In 36 seasons as a player and
coach at Ohio State, Griffin said
Sarkkinen was the proud owner of
many "gold pants" pendants
coveted by Buckeyes.
Players and coaches receive the
award when Ohio State beats
Michigan.

Rolen did not play in Tuesday's

Of MlSSOlHi COLUMIIA
If you'd like to live off-campus, it's a good
idea to start your preliminary work at feast
one semester in advance. The folks who get
the best deals are the ones who shop early.
Many places ask present tenants to renew
or commit to a July move by the end of
March. Around Spring Break is traditionally
the time when most places are rented on a
written lease of one year to start the next
August.
Your method of searching for future rental
housing is as important as getting an early
start The best way is clearly word-of-mouth.
In fact, the landlord you want to deal with
probably doesn't have to advertize in the
paper. If you have transportation, it's a good
idea to start cruising neighborhoods you like
for "For Rent" signs. I once called an owner
a half hour after seeing him put a sign in the
yard, only to find that two families were
ahead of me. The first callers got it.
Listings are a valuable source of informa-
tion, but never as reliable a channel as
friends or acquaintances with similar needs.
Check ail of the local and campus publica-
tions. Keep in mind however, that such
sources in no way guarantee the place or the
reputation of the owner.
. The person who composes the list is only
responsible for printing the words provided
by the person placing the advertisement.
It is essential that you investigate your
potential landlord's reputation. Once more,
check with friends and fellow students with
some rental housing experience. Local
papers routinely run articles on the good, the
bad and the ugly in the world of rental hous-
ing.
You can also check with the local Better
Business Bureau for any complaints filed
with them.
A complaint or two shouldn't
necessarily deter you. Maybe
you'd agree with the landlord if
you knew the whole story. It's the
notorious repeaters we're con-
cerned- with. When the tenth
client came to me with a serious
"repair delay" problem in one
near-campus complex, I believed
his theory that his landlord is just
collecting rent on the dive until it
fails down and becomes a student
parking lot. Pay special attention
if complaints reoccure.
On the other hand, some folks
don't have a realistic perspective
on the frequency of repairs need-
ed on older housing. Like old can,
such property is acquired because it's
affordable, but each season brings new diffi-
culties. Pay attention to the problems that
people who own their own "starter homes
gripe about. You can expect similar
headaches in rental housing. What your
lease promises is prompt and carefui main-
tenance and repain Just remember that lower
rent is no bargain at all if the place is not
kept up.
I'd also be wary of some corporations and
elaborate management systems. Both are
perfectly legal ways of doing business and
could in fact be a sign of extra
efficiency. Just be alert if it
seems to be a one-man show,
yet the paperwork includes a
wife, son or corporation. It
may be a method of "passing
the buck" as to landlord
responsibilities.
All rental housing must
meet the city's housing code,
which sets minimum sanita-
tion and safety standards.
Keep two tnings in mind in
this regard. First, the sanita-
tion standards are the mini-
mum. For instance the place
might be safe but in no way
energy efficient. Second, we
are wc king very hard as a

community to enforce these rules, but the
city remains seriously understaffed.
Hundreds of students each year lose sub-
stantial amounts of sleep and money due to
roommate conflicts. Therefore, no advice
about choosing rental housing is complete
without emphasizing care in selecting the
person with whom you plan to share it
Did you know that when two of you sign a
lease you are each guaranteeing that the full
rent will be paid? All lease signers are liable
together and as individuals. The owner can
charge any of the persons who signed for all
rents due, regardless of who moved out early
or caused the damage. Unfortunately, it's
usually the more responsible one who get
stuck with the bill, li you get caught in this
type of mess use small claims court. The
problem is that it's often too late. Even if you
win a judgement you may never collect
what's owed to you.
In signing a lease to rent off campus hous-
ing you are entering into a binding, legally
enforceable contract. Both sides have rights
and responsibilities. Your landlord or land-
lady should be someone with whom you can
communicate and can trust.
The vast majority of housing owners are
business people who are looking for the
same qualities in prospective tenants. Shop
around, shop early ana shop carefully. You'll
find them.

Looking for an apartment? You might want to
start now and there are things you should
know. Mapy students start hunting for apart-
ments for the fall as early as spring break.
In addition to luxuries like swimming
pools, dishwashers and microwaves there are
other matters you should consider before
signing a lease.
Check the apartment's construction,
appliances, electrical outlets, lighting, win-
dow and door locks, and the general cleanli-
ness and parking.
Are there laundry facilities available or
close by. Is there a grocery store or a bus

stop?
All these things should be considered in
addition to the general reputation of the
landlord for making repairs in a timely man-
ner and for returning security deposits at the
end of the lease.
Once you decide on an apartment, you
should carefully review the lease. Read it
word for word. If you do not understand a
provision or do not agree with it, have some-
one explain it or advise you how to rewrite it
in terms agreeable to you and the landlord.
If the landlord makes promises regarding
repairs that will be made before you move in
or shortly thereafter, get those promises in
writing, along with a date they will be com-
pleted.
If you have roommates, everybody should
sign the lease. Remember that the lease is a
binding contract. If the term of
the lease is for one year, you
are bound to its terms for one
year.
Choose your roommates
carefully. You could be paying
their rent if they decide to
move out. Every roommate
signing the lease is legally
obligated for the full amount of
the rent if another roommate
fails to pay. Roommates should
have a written agreement with
each other stating who pays
what. If a utility is billed in
your name, you are responsible for the entire
bill and must ask reimbursement from your
roommates.
Can you afford it? It is highly advisable to

What to do
about noisy
neighbors
C0�� JllBAN
CUM N010 PICSS
It's two in the morning. You're lying in bed trying to sleep
because you have a big meeting tomorrow morning. You feel a
pounding sensation in your head.
At first, you think it s a headache. But then you realize that
it's the funky disco beat blasting from your next-door neigh-
bor's stereo, reverberating through your bedroom and rattling
your windows.
Noisy neighbors are always bad news. But when you share
walls with the insensitive neighbor, the problem is especially
vexing. The good news for renters is that, in addition to all your
other options, you have built-in allies in the battle to keep your
apartment livable: your lease or rental agreement and your
landlord.
Remember the lease or rental agreement you signed?
Chances are your neighbor signed one, to. Standard leases and
rental agreements contain clauses that entitle you to "quiet
enjoyment" of your home.
A neighbor who is blasting the stereo in an unreasonable
manner is probably violating the lease or rental agreement and
can be evicted for doing so.
If you warn your neighbor about the noise in writing and are
sure that your lease entitles you to a reasonable amount of
quiet, send a copy of the lease along with your letter. In your
letter, tell the neighbor mat the next complaint will be to the
landlord or neighborhood association if the noise continues.
If warning your neighbor doesn't work, go to your landlord.
Most tenants don't like to complain to the landlord or manager
about unreasonable noise or other nuisances because they are
afraid of being branded as troublemakers. But other neighbors
are probably bothered by the noise, to.
Get together with them and complain to the landlord as a
up. It s easier and you might get faster results. Most land-
Is don't want arguments between tenants and won't put up
with tenants who cause trouble by ignoring signed lease or
rental agreements. Your landlord will probably tell the noisy
tenant to pipe down or face eviction.
Before you pound on the neighbor's door and yell something you'll
regret or, even worse, resign yourself to living with the noise, try some
more constructive alternatives.
1. Talk to your neighbor
Your first step is to talk to your neighbor and try to resolve your differences in person. It's hard to believe, but sometimes
neighbors are not aware that they are causing a disturbance. Even if you're ready to punch somebody's lights out, try a lit-
tle sugar instead.
2. Get a copy of your local ordinance
Your next step is to get a copy of your local noise laws. Most cities and counties have ordinances that control the times,
types and loudness of noise. For example, many local ordinances prohibit unreasonable vehicle noise (like honking the car
hom early every morning for a carpoof) or dogs barking all night long every night. Noisy neighbors are in for a warning or
even a fine.
You can look up your local ordinance at city hall or the public library. Make at least two copies of it, one for your neigh-
bor and one for yourself.
3. Warn your neighbor in writing
If things don't improve, ask your neighbor again � this time in writing � to quiet down. Don't make threats, but state
that if the situation doesn't improve voull be forced to notify the authorities. Enclose a copy of the noise ordinance. Keep
a copy of your letter, you'll need it if, as a last resort, you later sue your neighbor.
Most cities offer free or low-cost mediation services, which means they provide an impartial mediator who will sit down
with you and your neighbor and try to help you resolve your differences.
Just call the mediation service; someone there will contact the neighbor and suggest mediation. (These people are very
good at convincing others to give mediation a chance.)
5. Call the police
If you have done all of the above and your neighbor has responded by turning up the volume, now is the time to call the
police (or the Animal Control officer if the problem is a barking dog). Try to get the police to come while the noise is oecur-
Df course, you can call the police on a noisy neighbor the first time the music gets too loud for your taste. But the police
will be more sympathetic to your situation if they see that you have tried to solve the problem on your own.
R Sue for nuisance
If all else fails, you can get your neighbor's attention�and maybe some money�by suing in small claims court. You can
sue your neighbor for nuisance if your neighbor's noise unreasonably interferes with your enjoyment of your property. In die
lawsuit, you ask for money to compensate you for the interference with your right to peacefully enjoy your home.
Small chums court is easy and inexpensive, and you don't need a lawyer. You will need to show the following:
'There is excessive and disturbing noise.
Your enjoyment of your property is diminished.
�You have asked the person to stop the noise (your letter should be enough to prove this).
To prove your case, you can use police reports, witnesses, recordings, your own testimony and the testimony of neighbors
or other witnesses.
The amount you'll want to ask for will depend on how much the noise bothered you. Did you lose sleep? Were you unable
to carry on your usual activities such as reading, playing music or talking to friends?
Decide on a reasonable dollar amount per day, and multiply that figure by the number of days you've been seriously both-
ered. The amount of money you can ask for in small claims court is limited between $2,000 and $5,000 in most states.

Keys to a successful relationship
with your roommate
A successful relationship with your roommate begins with you! It's true. Having
a good roommate is often as easy as simply being a good roommate.
ftrtiaps the best advice ever given to roommates can be summed up in just one
word: communicate. Share your feelings, your habits, your attitudes, your ideas,
your moods, and your backgrounds. Listen and learn!
Be open-minded about people who are from different backgrounds or who may
look, think, or do things differently than you. You just might leam something new!
Remember that living in close quarters with a person you do not yet know is
somewhat frightening and in some cases very challenging. You are presented with
the opportunity to build a relationship based on mutual respect, appreciation for
individual differences, and the commitment to discuss the day-to-day issues and
problems that arise in any relationship.
There is no such thing as a "perfect roommate" or a roommate who is a carbon
copy of you. Roommates are always different in some ways. Celebrate those dif-
ferences, and don't forget that you don't have to be best friends in order to have a
successful roommate relationship.
A successful relationship sometimes just hinges on using
your head and not placing temptation in the way.
Here are some other tips:
1 Always lock your residence hall room door when you are out of
your room or sleeping.
2 Keep all small items of value out of sight
3 Engrave your social security number on all personal belongings.
4 Do not lend your room key to anyone!
5 Do not prop open exterior residence hall doors.
6 Ask questions!
7 Avoid walking alone at night Use the "buddy system
8 Use well-lighted and well-traveled routes. Don't walk through dark
areas of campus alone.
9 Be aware of what is going on around you.
10 Familiarize yourself with emergency telephone numbers.
In order to reduce potential friction and unexpected (and disappointing)
surprises, sit down with your roommate(s) during your first several days
together and discuss some of he following issues:
1 Your family
2 How you'd like to arrange the room
3 Your hometown
4 What property you're willing to share
5 Your high school activities
6 Your normal study habits
7 How much sleep you need
8 How neatclean you'd like the room to be
9 Considerations when guests visit the room
10 Times when guests are not preferred
11 Your weekend activity preferences
12 Your interests and activities
These are just starters. If you need more help, please see your Resident Advisor. While most roommates
succeed in resolving their differences, there are times when some mayneed outside help.
If ever you feel yourself in an unacceptable position of not being able to study, sleep or get along with your
roommate or others, let a residence hall staff member know immediately. If you live off campus, contact
the Counseling Center for suggestions on how to deal with the problem.

Students debate off-campus vs. campus living
JENSIKA STU�Z
TAB EDITO
Many studente see their move out of the residence
halls and into an apartment as a transition into a new
realm of responsibility.
According to ECU s Campus Living Manual, cam-
pus living means meeting new people, some of whom
will become good friends for life and living in an
environment conducive to studying. The manual also
says campus living allows a resident to step into a
new role as a student at ECU with confidence, with-
out having to worry about where to Kve arid how to
manage meals.
Fletcher resident Liz Pittner agrees that the goal
of the manual coincides with her experience.
"I have met a lot of good friends on my floor, and
there is always someone to talk to, Ktzner said.
Studente say the manual also falls short, howev-
er.
"There is nowhere to park, but what I dislike the
most is the visitation hours. 1 think by being in col-
lege we are responsible enough to set our own
hours Pitzner said.
Bonnie Forsytbe, a resident of Dogwood Hollow,
said she felt she was ready for additional responsi-
bility and had outgrown the residence halls.
"My first two years of college 1 lived in the dorm,
then 1 was ready to more out, Forsytbe said. "So 1

seat experience for those who are just leaving home
for theUrst time, most leave after a year or two, say-
ing they crave more space.
Among many decisions students face when con-
templating the move from the residence halls to an
apartment, safety is a priority.
"Students are not safe walking from their car to
their apartment said Tiffany Hadley. But still other
students say parking is a problem in the residence
halls too.
"There are hardly any visitor parking, said
Tanya Fowler.
Space is another consideration foremost on many
studente minds.
"I do feel safe living in an apartment, especially
since I have people living all around me. But I still
have more space, and more opportunity for friends to
visit than a dorm room said Fbriythe.
Candice Jones agrees that it is difficult to meet
people in the residence halls.
4lt is hard for roe to meet people Jones said.
Forsytbe said she not only feels more safe in her
apartment, but she also has the opportunity to meet
more people.
"I do feel safe walking from my car to my apart-
ment because the parking lot is right in front of my
door. As far as meeting people goes, I feel that the
way these apartments are laid out I can feel comfort-
able meeting new people Forsythe said. "Another
good benefit of living in Dogwood Hollow is having
plenty of visiting parking, so my friends can visit
me
Studente who want to live off campus face imme-
diate concerns over who they will live with.
Obviously, roommates are not arranged off-campus
as they were in the residence halls.
"It is not a good idea to live with someone you du
not know, especially because you do not know if the)
will be reliable for rent said student Bryan Hall.
Most college studente who want to move out of a
dorm and into an apartment or a house, usually move
in with someone Uiey went to high school with or
someone who lived in their residence hall.
"One-of my roommates 1 grew up with; I have
been dose friends with him for a long time, Hall
said. "My other roommate I became good friends
with by living with him in Garrett Hall.
Hall said finding a house was a more difficult
process than finding an apartment.
"We did three things to find the house we live in
now Hall said. "We looked in the newspapers �
The East Girolinian and The Daily Reflector. Then
we rode around town for rent signs in different yards.
And we also talked to friends who were already liv-
ing in a house to gee if they were moving
Hall said the process of narrowing down the hous-
es they found was fun.
"My roommates and 1 chose the house we live in
now by comparing the price and the location of the
house said Hall.
Hall said that while some apartment complexes
require parking passes, living in a house eliminates
that problem.
"Living in a house gives me and my roommates
more room, free parking and gives our friends an
opportunity to visit and not get towed said Hall.
Humane Society: college years hard time to own pet
JiNSia Stuhz
TM EDITO

E0IT0�mCMICf
Many studente adopt their fust children
in college: pete, while pete offer com-
panionship and protection, they are also
a serious obligation and responsibility
which can be difficult to manage during
college years.
Bobbie rksons of the Pitt County
Humane Society says studente need to
think hard before they commit them-
selves to an animal.
"There are some good pet owners who
are students but I can't tell who is who
when they come out here ftu-sons said.
"Most of the time we shiver when we see
college studetns coming
I'irsons said many students do not
consider the long-term obligation that
owning an animal presents.
"Studente think short term Parsons
said. "They think that just because they
have a place this year that they can have
a pet that they should rush out and get
one. Then what happens next year or the
year after when they move? We end up
with those animals all the time
Parson acknowledges that there are
good pet owners who are college
studetns, but says the majority are third
or fourth year studente. rarson said the
Humane Society keeps a list of area
apartments which do not allow pete and
refuses to give a pet to someone who lives
in one of those apartments.
Despite warnings, Parsons said many
of the patrons of the Humane Society are
students.
"1 think it is a great idea to have a pet
in college for companionship and espe-
cially for protection said Candace
Jones, a resident of Tar River Estates.
"Having a pet relieves so much
stress. Also, you can tell them your
thoughts and they cannot tell anyone
about them said Julie Dickerson.
While having a pet in college has its
benefits, it can also be expensiven
addition to food and medical attennfln,
many apartments require pet deposits
and fees.
"I already have to pay $380 for rent,
S6S for utilities, and a SlOOdollar
deposit for my dog Jones 6aid. "On-top
of that there is a 1250 fee
Many studente move every year and this
presents a problem for pet owners.
"Next year I want to move into the
Alpha Omicron Pi sorority house and we
cannot have pete inside, so I wUl leave

Here are answers to
frequently asked
questions on a
landlord's right to entry.
Does my landlord have the right to enter
my apartment whenever he or she wants?
It depends on the state. In aU states, a landlord or manager may
enter rented premises while the tenant is living there without
advance notice in the case of emergency, such as a fire or serious
water leak.
And, of course, a landlord may enter when a tenant gives permis-
sion. Beyond that, laws in many states guarantee tenants reason-
able privacy rights against landlord intrusions.
pWftaf are examples of situations when a
landlord may enter, but only after giving the
tenant reasonable notice?
Typically, a landlord has the right to enter rented premises after
giving tenants reasonable notice in order to make needed repairs
(or assess the need for them) and to show the property to
prospective new tenants or purchasers. In addition, a landlord
may enter rented premises in instances of abandonment (that is,
when the tenant moves out without notifying the landlord) or by
court order. A landlord may not enter just to check up on the
tenant.
P Assuming it is not an emergency, but the
landlord has a valid reason to enter � for
example, to make repairs � what kind of
notice is required?
States typically require landlords to provide a specific amount of
notice (usually 24 hours) before entering a rental unit.
In some states, such as California, landlords must provide a rea-
sonable amount of notice, legally presumed to be 24 hours.
Landlords can usually enter on shorter notice if it is impractica-
ble to provide the required amount of notice.
9 May a landlord enter a rental unit any time
day, as long as he's given the required
amount of notice?
No. In most instances�except emergencies, abandonment and invi-
tation by tenant�states allow a landlord to enter only at rea-
sonable times, without setting specific hours and days. However,
some states, such as; California, require that landlords may enter
only during normal business hours.
P What are the landlords options if a tenant
refuses to allow entry even when a landlord has
given adequate notice and has a valid
reason to enter?
A landlord should not force entry except when there is a true �
emergency, such as a fire or gas leak. However, if a tenant is
repeatedly unreasonable in denying the landlord access, the land-
lord can legally enter anyway, during reasonable times, provided he
does so in a peaceful manner. However, in no case should the
landlord enter if the tenant is present and saying "stay out
If a landlord has a serious conflict over access with an otherwise
satisfactory tenant, a sensible first step is to meet with the tenant to
see if the problem can be resolved. Often, neighborhood media-
tion programs will, for a low cost, help work out an agreement.
If these attempts at compromise don't work, a landlord can
usually evict the tenant for violating the lease or rental agreement,
assuming it contains an appropriate right-of-entry provision.
w What should a tenant do if a landlord
repeatedly violates his or her privacy rights by
entering the rental unit with no good reason
andor advance notice?
As a first step, the tenant will usually first meet with the landlord to
ask for assurance that this conduct won't be repeated. If this
doesn't work, the tenant (depending on the laws of her state) may
be able to simply move out, churning that the landlord's repeated
violation of her privacy amounts to a "constructive eviction
Finally, if the landlord's conduct seriously interferes with the ten-
ant's peace of mind, the tenant may have grounds for a success-
ful lawsuit, asking for damages. Typically, a tenant will file suit in
small claims court without a lawyer. For details on small claims
court procedures and the maximum amount for which someone can
sue, see Everybody's Guide to Small Claims Court (National or
California Edition), by Ralph Warner (Nolo Press).
How can I find out the specific laws on
privacy in my state?
Find your state's statutes at a law library or large public library.
If possible, look for the larger annotated version which will also
contain brief notes as to key court decisions. Look in the index
under Landlord-Tenant and then for the subheading Privacy. You
may also be able to get information from a local apartment associa-
tion or tenants' rights group.
Your state Attorney General's Office or Consumer Protection
Agency can also provide advice.
Nolo Press publishes two books on the subject for California:
The Landlord's Law Book, by Brown and Warner and Tenants'
Rights, by Moskovitz and Warner.
