Student arrested for filing false
report alleging assault near Jones
Female admits she was

AMANDA AUSTIN
NEWS EDITOH
A student and resident of Tyler
Hall, Kristen Olson, has been
arrested for filing a false assault
report Olson initially claimed she
had been attacked while on the
path between Jones Hall and the
nearby wooded area.
After a series of interviews with
Olson, the officer investigating the
case found a multitude of
discrepancies and unaccounted-for
changes in her story.
"There were problems with the
descriptions, places that the
investigator didn't feel was falling
into place like it should said Tom
Younce, assistant director of the
university police department.
Why Olson would make a false
claim that she had been attacked is
unknown to campus police officers.
"Sometimes you just don't know
what goes through a person's
head Younce said.
Olson was
arrested the morning
of March 6, and
appeared before the
magistrate later that
day. She was
charged with filing a
false report, a
misdemeanor that
could call for a
maximum fine of
$1000 and up to 30
days in jail. Olson
made a written
statement to the
universitv Police
"There were problems
with the descriptions,
places that the
investigator didn 'tfeel
was falling into place
like it should
Tom Younce �
University police ollicei
that she did file a
false report.
Olson was released
from jail on an
unsecured bond of
$500. This means
that if she fails to
appear in court she
will have to pay the
$500.
Younce wants to
convey to students
that they should
continue to be safe
and take
precautions when
necessary. There is
still a suspect in the Cotten Hall
rape case that has not been
apprehended, and the university
police do not want anymore
students to become victims.
"We've still got a suspect out
there Younce said. "We don't
want people to let up on their
guard
If a student feels there may be a
suspicious person in the area they
should still contact the appropriate
authorities.
"When you see something
suspicious please call us (the ECU
Police) Younce said.

Class of 2001 more optimistic than
Generation X, according to a survey conducted
ok college freshmen across the country
CRAKi i. Rwm

"The first graduating class of the millennium feels like they can make an impact
said Deanna Tillisch, director of the Generation 2001 Study. "They are-optimistic
but still realistic. This generation wants to help others through volunteering their
time
Generation X trends reflect feelings of pessimism and defiance toward social
institutions in contrast to the 2001 survey.
"I think this generation is more optimistic because they have seen positive
political influences said Tillisch. "They haven't seen a war. They saw the wall
come down and the Soviet Union fall. This generation has a lot of patriotism and
pride
This optimism is apparent among some ECU freshmen as well.
Freshmen express different views than proceeding generations and even upperclassmen.

According to the survey, the class of 2001 mirrors the beliefs and values ol
their grandparents' generation more than any other.
"They trust their grandparents more than their own generation or generation
X said David Krane, Executive Vice President, Generation 2001 Survey,
"There has been a lot in the media about the carefree attitude of Generation X
That press has created a negative image toward them
By no means is Generation 2001 a carbon copy of their grandparents. These
generations mainlv differ in their beliefs on relationships and marriage.
As many as 61 percent of those sun-eyed see divorce as an acceptable solution
if two people are unhappy in a marriage, and just as many of those agree; living
together before getting married is a good idea.
"Divorce has been prevalent in the last ten years Krane said. "They grew
���� up in single parent families and housholds and they feel like they didn't turn out
mmmmmmm so bad .
�� The class of 2001 will also have a very different work environment from
mmmm earlier generations with the addition of technology and affirmative action.
����� "Technology is the biggest thing they will face Krane said.
�� Tillisch feeis that the generation has a stronger degree of confidence in
m. themselves because of the addition of women and various races to the work
The survey also reflects strong beliefs in God and life after death. 89 of
those surveved believe in God and 75 percent believe in life after death.
"We asked: 'who in history would you like to have dinner with said Tillisch.
� so m n w 'Jesus came out on top, by far
Krane and Tillisch plan to conduct the survey again in the year 2001 on trie
same studuents when they are seniors, to study the similarities and differences.

An estimated $1300 cost and a
short, two-week term of office,
coupled with two violations of the
constitution's election provisions,
has intensified controversy
concerning the practicality of
enforcing SGA's constitution.
The election to fill the SGA
vice-president position, vacated
earlier this semester by Sean
McManus, is scheduled for
March 24, only two weeks before"
the annual April 8 election.
Violations include the number of
election booths required and a
three-week time limit, during
which the constitution says a
replacement election must be

Officials say the number of

recognized because of the large
amount of time and dedication
she puts into her job as a

"She was hired to be the
clinical coordinator but has
jumped in and is doing a big
portion of the preclinical work,
and is serving as course director
for several preclinical courses
said Edward Huechtker, chair of
physician assistant studies.
Bailey's job description
requires her to arrange clinical
rotation sites throughout the
state for clinical physician
students. According to
Huechtker, this is only a small
part of what Bailey actually
accomplishes.
In addition to arranging
clinical rotation. Bailey trains
physician's assistants in their
clinical physical diagnosis
courses and is a sponsor of a pre-
PA club. She also works as a
course director for physician's
assistant students creating syllabi
and exams.
"She has taught courses that
physicians normally teach

EastNet, the internet access
service that ECU provides to
educators, recently celebrated its
third anniversary.
EastNet provides internet
service to teachers,
administrators and professors in
the Eastern Carolina area.
The North Carolina General
Assembly provided the original
funding for EastNet through the
Eastern Carolina Consortium for
Advancement and Research
(ENCCARE). Now ECU
supports the service. It is
directed by the School of
Education's Office of School
Services.
The program began three
years ago in the ECU School of
Education with about 250 users
and has had a steady climb to
more than 5,000 users today.
"It puts availability of internet
access in more hands said Brad
Sneeden, director of the School
of Education and School
Services.
EastNet has sites on ECU's
campus and a site in Wilson
which was established last year.
A new dial up service called
EastNet Jr. for public school
teachers and administrators in
Washington and New Bern was
developed in conjunction with
Beaufort and Craven counties.
Funded by local county school
systems, EastNet Jr. connects the
internet through ECU service.
"It makes a lot of resources
available at home said Gregg
Lowe, EastNet's system
operator. "It gives the teachers a
wider access with the students
Along with internet service to
educators' in public schools as
well as on the university level,
EastNet enables public schools
to have their own web sites.
Some of the web sites hosted by
the EastNet server are Dare,
Edgecombe, Greene, Hyde, Pitt
and Wilson.
; "It's not 100 percent yet, but
we may be putting one up in
Edenton Lowe said.
"We want to bridge
cdmmunication links between
professors and teachers
Sneeden said.
A well-known feature of
EastNet is the parking cam
which is a camera that projects
live pictures from a campus
parking lot. During Hurricanes

viewers parking cam pictures of
storm action.

SGA vice-president are Joe

by the constitution will be more
beneficial to the students and
school in the long run.
"It would be presumptuous to
think that I would be able to
make a difference in two weeks; I
am just interested in maintaining
the constitution Philips said.
SGA President Scott Forbes
agrees with the purpose and goals
of the constitution. He feels the
constitution is not a document of

"This scenario is not indicative
"of how it always is; however, the

On the other side of the issue,
Eric Rivenbark, former vice-

considered running for vice

he does not see the election as
beneficial to the students. Eric
says he was nominated for the
position in hopes that his efforts
and ideas could contribute to the
student body.
"The SGA officials are here to

on how to better the quality of
outpatient care.
"They were very
knowledgeable about outpatient
care Wilkerson said. "We were
quite appreciative of the
educational aspect of the survey
Wilkerson said that although
the surveyors could not inform
Student Health at that moment if
they had received accreditation,
they did say their facility was very
prepared.
"Our staff was very supportive
of the process Wilkerson said.
"They were hard working and
dedicated in obtaining the goal of
accreditation
On Feb. 10, Health Services
was informed of their
accreditation.
"(The accreditation)
demonstrates our commitment to
provide' the highest level of
quality of care to the students
Wilkerson said.
Accreditation is an ongoing
process. ECU's Student Health
Services will be accredited foi
three years. After that, they will
have to complete the process
again.

PCMH introduces telemedicine for rural sites
Patients get help
without having to
make trip
MELAN1K II VCKWOKTH
STrf ivmiER
Telemedicine has made it
possible for patients in rural areas
to get help from specialists at Pitt
County Memorial Hospital
(PCMH) without having to travel.
The ECU School of Medicine
has 11 sites in surrounding rural
counties equipped with two-way
televisions that are connected to
PaCMH. The people in both
locations are able to see each other
while talking.
"It's an
opportunity for
people to see in
both directions
said Dr. James
Hallock, dean of
the School of
Medicine.
Communities
such as Ahoskie
and Williamson
now possess the
ability to have
face-to-face
consultations with
specialists from
different medical
backgrounds.
"The doctor at
Amy Royston uses the new
telemedicine system.

this end can see it like they were
in the room Hallock said. "It's
very beneficial for the patient to
see a specialist
and not have to
travel
In addition to
being able to
consult with
doctors at
PCMH, medical
officials from
rural hospitals
and doctors'
offices are able to
watch teaching
rounds from the
School of
Medicine.
Doctors from
these 11 sites are
then able to learn
from the specialists at PCMH by
watching what they do.
Currently, one local high school
is connected to the telemedical
system to facilitate learning of
medical-related sciences.
Doctors at PCMH are now able
to interact in national conferences
connected to the telemedical
system without having to leave
their duties and travel.
This kind of technology is not
inexpensive. PCMH pays
$100,000 for the setup of each site
and $1,000 a month in phone bills.
"We're one of the leading five
or six medical schools doing this
technology Hallock said. The
ECU School of Medicine gets
federal grants in order to see if
telemedicine is cost-wise for the
federal government.

JENNIKER VlCKERS

Recent drug violation statistics
show ECU has the highest
ranking. Regardless of the high
numbers, actual drug usage
doesn't appear to surpass other
universities.
According to the
CORE Institute
Alcohol and Other
Drug Survey,
administered during
the 1997
semester
"According to the
survey, students think
spring their peers use alcohol

after alcohol and OiteciDt ol HeaUh Promotion and Well
tobacco. 46 percent of
the students reported that they
had tried it at least once, 31
percent used it in the last year,
and five percent reported
currently using it at least three
times per week.
Comparing the CORE Survey
statistics to the Drug Policy
Violations statistics, more people
reported using drugs, than were
actually caught. Out of 603
students, five percent reported
using, and out of 18,000 students,
less than 1 percent were caught.
"Our statistics are close to the
other 45,000 students across the
nation who took the survey said
Donna Walsh, Directorof Health
The sample was distributed
randomly to 1200 students on and
off campus. Out of the 50
percent (603) returning the
survey, slightly more females, on-
campus residents, and freshman
responded.
"The CORE Survey has been
distributed at colleges across the
nation Walsh said. "The bulk of
the survey has to do with what do
you think is happening and what
do you do. The test instrument
was developed 10 years ago to
measure what is happening on
each campus. It
takes a snap shot
pictures at a
specific point in

and then you are

The CORE
Survey reported
alcohol as the first
choice in drug
U3dgU 74 uctt8.Ul
of students
believes their peers drink three
times a week, versus 17 percent
reporting drinking that often.
The goal of the survey is to
make students aware that
rnispcrceptions about alcohol and
other drugs do exist, and to help
decrease the use and abuse of
alcohol and other drugs on our
campus.
"According to the survey,
students think their peers use
alcohol and drugs much rnore
than they actuallv do Walsh said.
The CORE Survey will be
distributed to students again next
spring.

Warren speaks to campus Democrats
Alumni runs for N.C.
State Legislature
ME i. n I E Hack worth
srvri writf.k
Alumni and Pitt County
Commissioner Edith Warren
spoke Wednesday to a group of
Campus Democrats about her
campaign for the N.C. State
legislature.
Warren's prospective district,
District 8, includes the School of
Medicine and parts of western
Greenville; however, Warren feels
it is necessary to talk to members
of the main campus as well.
"The young people who are on
this campus are a very important
part of the community Warren
said.
In Warren's talk to the Campus
Democrats, she explained her
interest in the campus.
Warren, her husband and all
three of her children attended
ECU. Warren first came to
college in the 1950s as a
commuter. She paid $55 tuition
per quarter and fondly relayed the
details of the campus at that time,
such as the grand opening of
Joyner Library.
Warren enjoyed a lengthy-
career in education as a teacher
and principal of local elementary-
schools.
"This is a place that's very dear
to my heart Warren said .
Warren said she believes in the
ability of students to make a
difference, citing her 1996
campaign for Board of
Commissions. According to her
campaign manager, university-
students made the difference in
her election.
"I stand before you as proof of
ECU students' commitment
Warren said.
Warren's platforms are varied.
She said she understands the
need for clean water and good
sewer control, as well as the
importance of keeping costs
contained. The issue of
education is also of major
importance.
"I have a very great interest as
a legislator to be there for East
Carolina Warren said. "This is
another opportunity that I can be
of service to ECU, its students,
faculty and staff

Spring break, or should we call it "Spring Break In"? You are all pumped up, counting down
the days until Spring Break, and thinking of nothing but getting the heck out of here. But
before you cruise out of town, take a minute to think about those who will be cruising into
town, to take advantage of the fact that about 18,000 of Greenville's residents will be
shutting their doors and windows, but not necessarily locking them.
Break-ins robbery, whatever you want to call it, it doesn't matter, but just beware; the
sneaky guys are out there, and they are every bit as excited about "Spring Break" as you
are.
Over Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks, 36 homes in Greenville were broken into;
many were student homes, so it is important to realize it has happened before, and it very
well could happen again. If you are like most people, you are probably thinking, "Oh, that
i would never happen to me. Why would someone want to break into my house?" Well, it
� is time for a wake up call, because the people in this world are not as predictable as you
. think.
Think about it this way. Suppose you were a thief yourself, wanting nothing more to get
your hands on the big screen TV you have seen through the living room window of a
student's home? When would you go in for the big steal? Probably at a time when that
student was not around, and would not be around for a few days at that. It makes perfect
sense! Give your local thiefs more credit; they are actually a lot smarter than you think.
I So what do you do? Be sure that you lock all of your doors and windows, but to go even
farther, be sure that you hide all of your valuables, or take them with you better yet. It may
be helpful to leave a small light on, and if your neighbors will be around for the week, let
them know that you are leaving and to keep on eye on your empty house.
The Greenville Police Department is making every effort to ensure safety and security
for student homes over break. They recently developed a new system called "Keep
Check" that allows travelers to request a "house monitor" to keep an eye on things while
they are away. Police officers will gladly come by your house each night you are away to
see that your home is sound and will make every effort to investigate even the smallest
things that seem slightly out of place or "fishy
To take advantage of this service, stop by the police department before you leave and let
them know about any cars that will be left parked at your home, any lights that will left on,
the dates you will be out of town, and anything else they should expect to see while you
are away.

Greeks treat people badly too
I'm writing in response to Marvelle
Sullivan's column about "the unfair
ridicule of Greeks" from TEC's
March 5 edition. Let me start by
saying that I have lived in
Greenville since 1992 and have met
some genuinely cool fraternity and
sorority people, although this is
outweighed by the many negative
experiences I have had with these
people.
For example, just a few weeks
ago, I was leaving downtown with
two friends when a group of five
drunken, angry frat boys (I could
tell they were frat boys by the
proud displays of their affiliations
on their hats and shirts) started
calling one of my friends a freak
and screaming that he needed to
shave his goatee and get some
normal clothes. I could only guess
what these guys were so angry
about in the first place. Maybe
Buffy blew chunks on one of them
in Sharkey's.
Anyway we were ready to leave
and just ignore them, but it almost
escalated to a total brawl. Luckily-
one of us had the means to make
them back down, however
reluctantly. We went to my friend's
house to cool off and had a short
discussion about what makes
people like this tick. We wondered
why they all struggle so hard to look
exactly alike. Why do they all feel
such a strong urge to conform? Why
are they all so intimidated bv
anything that's different? Why can't
they just be individuals instead of
joining these groups in fruitless
searches for identity?
Also, Sullivan mentions that a
huge percentage of CEO's,
Supreme Court justices, senators
and House representatives are
former Greeks. She says this is
"enormously successful What?
These are people who walk all over
the working class and infringe on
the public's personal rights more
than anyone! The only person she
left out was the police officer.
I'd like to conclude by telling
everyone reading this who is
different from the norm to keep
your heads up, stick together and
protect yourselves and each other
by any means necessary.

Tanning beds not good idea for all
always thought that the
point of laying out was to
relax in the fresh air and
warm sun. Therefore, the
idea of a tanning bed makes
no sense to me.
When I was very young I worked
on a tobacco farm. Since I was just a
little thing, my job was to stay at the
barn and help tie the sticks
together.
Once we arrived early in the
morning at a barn which had not
been swept out from the previous
season, so of course, we had to
clean it before we could begin.
After a few minutes, my older, evil
cousin emerged from the bam with
a brittle, dry husk in the shape of a
cat. It seems that a stray had
wandered into the barn and was
accidentally trapped inside when
the burners were lit to cure the
tobacco. The cat had been "cured"
� dried of all moisture. Then my
evil cousin chased me with it for 20
minutes.
This is what I think of when I
see all of these drastically tanned
people walking around and there
hasn't been a sunny day in four
months.
I am not one to frown upon
basking in the warm sun on a
beautiful summer day with the
birds singing in one ear and the
sound of the ocean in the other.
This is one of the greatest pleasures
of the world, and in fact, sunlight
provides us with many important
vitamins. But you wouldn't walk on
(nc moon without a space stilt, you
don't dive into freezing water
without a wet suit, and I don't lay-
out without sunscreen.
I always thought that the point
of laying out was to relax in the
fresh air and warm sun. Therefore,
the idea of a tanning bed makes no
sense to me. Enclose myself naked
into a fluorescent, other-wordly
coffin for a half hour? No thanks.
I'd rather tie cinder blocks to my
feet and swim across the river.
Before my first (and only) visit to
a tanning bed, I used to pity those
poor chickens in fast food joints
spinning slowly in the rotisserie
oven. Now I recognize that human
beings do this to themselves
voluntarily, and pay good money for
it. And to'what end? The rays used
in these beds age the skin 40
percent faster than the sun. Is it
really worth looking like a raisin has
enveloped your entire body just to
be an unpleasant traffic cone
orange shade now? I mean, what is
the positive side here, besides the
fact that lots of tanning bed owners
are getting fat off of the vanity of
college students?
I know that it is uncool to have
the same color skin you were born
with, for some reason. And
especially around spring break,
people try to make their bodies
socially perfect because of some
bizarre mating ritual that takes
place within that week (kinda like
salmon swimming upstream �
they work and work and when they
get there they just lay some eggs
and go home).
But come on. You have the same
skin forever. Unless you meet a
future plastic surgeon during spring
break and hit it off Well, most of
us have the same skin forever. So
one week of being dark and lovely
does not justify the permanent risk
that you put yourself in every time
you set butt in a tanning bed.
So next time your friend
whispers to you, "Hey, check out
the tan on that one check it out.
And then picture that face in ten
years, with all the moisture sucked
out, looking a whole lot like the
leather on the bottom of your book
sack. Reminiscent of a cat I once
knew, long ago

Campus housing not a bargain

So Fiona Apple cancelled her
concert at ECU, but she also
cancelled her entire tour. If William
Stacey Cochran were well-
educated, maybe he would have
researched the reasoning behind
her abrupt decision.
It just so happens that Fiona
Apple had some family problems,
which sources believe to be a death
in her family, particularly her
grandfather. think that is more
than enough reason to cancel a
concert. I am sure that your
grandfather is more important to
you than a few thousand nameless
people. Think about the things that
matter before you attack people.
Fiona is not the bad, bad girl you
make her out to be. Her concert
was canceled for very extreme
reasons, not because she is a
"flake There are those of us who
do like Fiona Apple � and I mean
more than one song � who will
continue to stand by her. She is
someone with wonderful talent that
deserves to be recognized by an
award as prestigious as the
Grammy. I don't think that the
Grammy she recently received

she received the Grammy this year.
Just because you think that. Fiona
Apple will simply "fade from our
memory" doesn't mean that will
happen.
If you are reading this, you may
not think that I am angry about the
cancellation of her very anticipated
concert. At first, when I heard the
news. I admit that I was a bit upset,
but not so upset that I immediately
pointed my finger at her and called
her a bitch. No, instead I decided to
investigate the reason behind her
cancellation. I think that someone
who labels themselves as even
remotely intelligent could learn to
express their opinion on facts, not
just on what they thought
happened. Next time let's try and
get all the facts before we point the
finger; okay?
Yes. Fiona cancelled her concert,
but you can get your money back.
The only loss is that we don't get to
see the wonderful Fiona Apple in
concert. I am sure that if you were
this quick to turn your back on her.
then you never really liked her in
the first place. It is true that artists
need consumer support to make it
in the music business, and Fiona
has my support now and forever.
You can say whatever you want
about Fiona Apple, but her fans,
including myself, will turn up her
music and drown you out. My heart
goes out to you, wherever you are.

Living on campus is cheap
only if you look at the
economic costs. Consider
other costs before signing up
for another year in the
residence halls.
The time for apartment and house
hunting is upon us. Numerous
dorm-residing students look at the
cost of apartments versus dorms. To
help with this decision the
department of housing at ECU has
several posters and ads touting how
cheap living on campus is.
Living on campus is cheap only
if you look at the economic costs.
Consider other costs before signing
up for another year in the residence
halls. How about the costs of
having a landlord who actually
jrives a damn? The following is the
final straw that made me decide to
get out of a residence hall.
The temperature was dropping
like a crack head coming off a high.
I turned on my heat before my
roommate and I headed off to grab
a bite to eat followed by a free
movie at Hendrix. Around ten we
returned to a cold room; thinking I
had turned off the heat, my
roommate, yelled at me and turned
the dial the other way.
We headed out for a wild night
of cheap women and even cheaper
liquor. Later, we returned home,
having found way too much cheap
liquor to even care about the
women. It was not until the next
morning we realized the heat was
still not working. I talked to my
resident advisor about the problem.
He told us to call maintenance,
which I did posthaste.
My roommate and I had a busy
schedule; we were not in the room
for the good part of the day. We
returned after dark that night.
Guess what? No heat.
Next day, call maintenance, wait
and freeze. No heat, again. At this
point I had taken to wearing
jogging pants, two pairs of socks, a
t-shirt, and sweat shirt to bed. I
turned myself into a cocoon with
one sheet, two comforters and two
blankets. I shivered myself to
sleep.
Some of my friends on the hall
were gracious enough to lend my
roommate and me blankets. Our
room became known as the frozen
tundra. Finally four days after we
had called maintenance, our heat
was fixed. J
While living in four different
apartments, I have yet to encounter
a landlord who took their time,
unlike ECU. If the emergency is
dire, no heat, air conditioning
broke, refrigerator on the fritz or a
broken window, my landlords have
been pretty prompt. I have had to
wait less than 24 hours for the real
emergencies.
Smaller things like a drip in the!
kitchen, broken oven, or fixing a
broken door knob, took a little bit
longer. The most I have had to wait
for minor repairs is five days.
If the ECU housing authority,
feels that decisions about where
you live should be made on
economics, fine and dandy,
Consider the economics of using
the bathroom and knowing exactly
who used it last. Submitted for your
approval; the ability to have Ben
and Jerry's ice cream at your,
disposal. The dorm fridges do not
keep the ice cream cold enough; it
turns to yogurt.
How about taking a shower and
not having to jump out of the,
stream of water when you hear a
flush? Or even better, taking a
shower and not seeing a yellow
stream of questionable material
flow your way.
The best reason you should
move out of the dorms: toilet paper
rolls and fabric softener sheets. If
you don't get that one, you have not
yet experienced college. t

What do a porn star, a New York
City detective, a Cuban
transvestite, a family from Maine,
and a Good Humour man have in
common? They all inhabit the
mysterious and cruel world of John
Guare's drama. Landscape of the
Boa's1. These strange and scary-
figures become entangled in a web
of lies, secrets and crime that is
impossible to escape. �
Overall, the play is harsh and
depressing, show ing a world that is
as without hope as it is without
mercy. The East Carolina
Playhouse attempts to draw the
audience into this dysfunctional
life. In general, the audience is left
alienated from the characters.
Jamie Bullock (Betty, the
struggling, single mom) and
Michelle Alana Samarel (her
drugged up, porn star sister,
Rosalie) present uneven
performances. Bullock is very
convincing in interrogation scenes,
but she is otherwise unbelievable
as a woman forced to live a
degrading existence. She also has a
slight problem with her accent; is
she from Maine, Massachusetts, or
North Carolina? Samarel does
capture some of the saucy side of
Rosalie, but seems a little out of it
� even for a dead chick.
Jim Bray delivers a strong
performance as Bert, the fourteen-
year-old murder victim; Brav shows
tremendous talent as he realizes a
remarkable range of emotion. He is
both an innocent child and a street-
hardened punk.
Strong support from Jamie Lane
and Elizabeth D. Lucas, as Bert's
troubled friends, adds some dark
humor to this depressing world.
The most humorous character is
Durwood Peach, played by Danny
Kotzian. As Durwood so eloquently
puts it, "The special may be
blueberry, but I'm pushing the
peach" � and I'm pushing
Kotzian's performance as one of the
highlights of this play.
John Shearin's directing
helps evoke a little sympathy for
some really messed up characters.
The murder scene is beautifully-
staged to create graceful, almost
dance-like, action. The mostly gray

feeling of disappointment. Where
Dances and Braveheart break
molds , Titanic follows a certain
convention. There is a wealthy girl
engaged to a mean, wealthy man
who tails in love with tin artist on a
sinking ship. It seems like the
makers of Titanic wrote the film in
this nice little package so that it
would. appeal to the masses.
Whereas, Dances and Braveheart
have one actor acting as director,
actor and producer. One actor who
has such passion about telling his
story that it transcends in the
picture over and over again.
Todays new epic, as embodied
by Titanic, has its themes rooted in
the expression of tragedy and love,
but where are the bigger themes of
freedom and struggle to rise above
the dark forces of the Times!
Perhaps had the Titanic story
involved a submarine attack versus
the force of nature, it would take its
place among true epics. But this
picture leaves one feeling lost,
because what is the point really of
all that loss without an overriding

Past Academy film epics have
focused on the struggles inherent
in the advance of civilization. It is
valuable to go back to the previous
films to see what capability the arts

staged to create graceful, almost
dance-like, action. The mostly gray
and black, minimalist sets,
designed by Robert C. Alpers, are
very effective in continuing the
somber mood. Rotating sets
provide some cool effects. There
are some problems with lighting, as
often several seconds of action
occur before the spotlight finds the
right actors.
Landscape of the Body is a must
see for serious theater buffs. But if
you are looking for a night of light
entenainment, this is not the play
for you. The world created is bleak,
dark and unrelenting in its brutality.
The people who live there are hard
to comprehend and even harder to
care about. Be prepared for a long
first act (80 minutes) that will leave
you without hope and a short
resolution that is far from satisfying.
The show ends tonight with an
8:00 p.m. performance. Individual
tickets are available at the box
office in McGinnis Theatre lobby at
a cost of $8-$9 for the general
public. $7-$8 for ECU facultyStaff

Pirate baseball comes up short
against Georgia Southern Eagles
ECUstruggfes
through weekend
Paui, Kaplan
SENIOR WHITER
It was dark, cloudy, cold and
dreary in Greenville this
weekend. That is how Head
baseball Coach Keith LeClair
described the doubleheader
against Georgia Southern on
Saturday.
"We didn't do anything well.
We didn't pitch well; we didn't
play good defense; we didn't
swing the bat well. There aren't
many positive things you could
possibly say about todays games
LeClair said.
The Pirates lost the first game
10-5 after trailing 7-0 from a Steve
Walson three-run home run in the
third and a grand slam home off
the bat of Georgia Southern's
Matt Easterday in the fourth.
ECU managed a five-run rally in
the fifth inning off of five
consecutive hits, but the effort
was not enough to get ahead, as
the Eagles scored two more runs
in the fifth and then one run in
the top of the ninth.
Georgia Southern's Mike
Standridge (1-2) contributed to
the win for the Eagles after
pitching five innings, allowing 10
hits and five runs with three strike
outs. ECU's Brooks Jernigan (3-1)
picked up his first loss of the
season after pitching 3 13 innings,

ECU's women's tennis team
hosted in-state-rival Campbell
University on
Thursday. The
match marked the
fourth of the
Pirates' spring
season.
The Lady
Pirates grabbed an
impressive win,
posting a final score
of 5-2.
"Beating
Campbell shows
that we can
compete with the
top teams junior
Anne Svae said.
"This was a huge
win for us
In the No.l
singles battle, Svae
faced Campbell's
Eleonora Vegliante.
This would prove to
' be a tough match, as
Vegjiantc was
nationally ranked as
high as 78th in the
Rolcx Collegiate
Rankings, established in
December of 1997.
After a grueling three-hour
match, Svae captured the win in
three sets, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (7-0).
"JLttad never beaten her
before, but I finally got it going
this time Svae said.
The No.4 singles battle
in her first set, but came back to
snag the win in the last two sets.
ECU's Gina MacDonald and
Catherine Morgan made short
work of their opponents in the
No. 5 and No.6 singles matches,
as both took their wins in straight
sets over Campbell's Jennifer
Weathers and Wendy Goyette.
In the only
doubles match
of the day, the
twosome of
Lady Pirates
MacDonald
and Morgan
faced
Campbell's

No.3 doubles
spot was
dominated by
ECU with a

score, 8-0.
In the only

day, ECU's

were downed
in their No.2
and No.3
match-ups.

SENIOR WRITER
On Wednesday, ECU's men's
tennis team played West Virginia
in their first home match of the
season, defeating the West
Virginia Mountaineers 4-3. After
West Virginia took two out of
three doubles matches, ECU
came back to win four out of six
singles matches.
ECU's No. 1 seed, Roope
Kalajo, forfeited the doubles
match due to injury, allowing
Head Coach Bill Moore the
opportunity to bump everyone up
in the line up.
"With the injury to Roope, we
had to move everyone around and
that hurt us in the doubles
Moore said.
Nils Alomar and Kenny Kirby
won the only doubles matches for
the Pirates, defeating Mike
Dektas and Walt Samora 8-6.
Alomar and Kirby also won their
singles matches. Alomar won
over Mike Dektas 7-5, 6-3, at No.
1 singles and Kirby won easily
over Ben Jacobs 6-1,6-1 at No. 3
singles.
"This is a big win for us
and having only a few home
matches, it's nice to win
here .
Stephen Siebenbrunner
Tennis Player
"I played real well today. I had
struggled earlier in the year and
then I started to work on my
footwork and hitting a lot of balls
and my play started to improve a
lot Jacobs said.
Kalajo played second singles

park only to be followed
by two more
consecutive Eagle
home runs by Brooks
Hoover and Scott
Henley. Georgia
Southern grabbed the
lead and was able to
hold on to jt-
for the rest
of the game.
The Pirates
did score
two more
runs in the
bottom of
the fourth
but could
not gather
together a
rally to pull
in the win. Fields (1-3) took the
loss for the Pirates after giving up
eight hits and six earned runs in 2
innings at the mound.
"It was kind of disappointing. I
don't think we came out ready to
play today, we didn't play good
defense like we have been, the
pitching wasn't there, at times we
hit the ball, but overall I don't
think, we hit the ball well today
senior Randy Rigsby said after the
game. (Rigsby ended the day 5-8.)
"In the game of baseball at
least you get an opportunity to go
out and feel good tomorrow. We
don't have to sit around and wait a
week to play again Leclair said.
ECU will travel to Wake Forest
this weekend as they try to
recover from their two game
Georgia Southern sweep.

The women's tennis team improved their record to
2-2 over the weekend's matches against Campbell.

ACC action
more than just
basketball
Was it the Greensboro
Coliseum or did I die
and go to heaven???
JASON THURINtiER
� STAFF WHITER
Brothers and sisters, I saw the
gates of heaven this past
weekend and I'm here to tell you
about it. The pillars that held the
gates are the columns of the
Greensboro Coliseum. That's
right, I'm talking about college
basketball heaven, the ACC
tournament.
The arena had the feel of large
religious revival, complete with a
church service to close the
festivities, though there were few
minor deviations. Instead of
shaking the reverend's hand after
the service is over, I shook his
hand a couple of hours before it
started. As I was headed to the
championship game, the church
service, I passed Dick Vitale in
the lobby of the hotel. He was in
a hurry, so I only had time to say
hello and shake his hand, but it
was exciting to meet the
Reverend of college hoops.
Also in the lobby of the hotel a
scalper (or the usher depending
on your point of view), was taking
donations. I asked what the going
donations rate was, and he said it
was $600 for two lower-level seats
at the service I mean game.
For the opening hymn the
21,000-plus members of the
congregation all stood up and
sang "The Star Spangled
Banner I knew then that this
was going to be a special service,
errrr, I mean game, when
everyone was on key.
Once the revival started the
ministers took over. Mike
Krzyzewski and Bill Guthridge
led a spirited service that lasted
nearly two hours. Though they
did their best to convert members
of the congregation to their side
of the religion, I did not see any
conversions on this Sunday
afternoon. I learned that once a
denomination is chosen, you may
be putting your life at risk if you
change denominations. Your life
could also be in jeopardy if you
happen to be sitting in a pew that
is not of your denomination.
The members of the
congregation were moved by the
spint though out the game. They
would all stand up together and
scream in support of their
denomination.
Holding true to the religious
from, some members of the
congregations did not like the
way the service appeared to be
ending, so they left with one
minute to go in the game.
After the game was over I was
standing in line waiting to catch a
shuttle bus back to the hotel,
when I noticed that the clouds
parted for just a minute and the
sky was painted Carolina blue. It
was then that I noticed that the
day had really been a religious
experience.
Even though I had the
opportunity to visit heaven this
weekend, I am still a Pirate at
heart, and damn proud of it
Golf team finishes 12th at Fripp Island Invitational
Pirates open spring
season strong
Ian Robson
STAFF WRITER
The ECU men's golf team
traveled to the Ben HoganFripp
Island Invitational this past
weekend hoping to make a solid
start on this spring season.
Although Head Coach Kevin
Williams admits that while a 12th
place finish is not their best, he
was happy with how the team
played. 'There's not a lot of room
for error when there are six teams
in front of you within five shots
Williams said. "I'm not
disappointed though, because the
score we shot would have won us
the tournament last year
The squad finished in sixth
place after Friday's round with a
288. They fell, however, seven
spots to 13th by Saturday's end.
Even though they did gain a spot,
moving up to 12th they could not
regain their sixth place before the
tournament ended. 'There were

a lot of positives that did come out
of this tournament, I think we got
our feet on the ground Williams
said.
Sophomore Shane Robinson
played extremely well in the
tournament posting a 72-73-71
score respectively, finshing three
over par and tied for 12th place.
"He really answered many of my
questions about him this
weekend with an exclamation
mark Williams said.
ECU finished with a final score
of 881 over three rounds. Georgia
State won the tournament with a
final score of 858. Coastal Carolina
and Richmond tied for second
with an 867, only 14 strokes from
ECU's score. "The scores were
very close together, you can't be
dissapointed when you play well
and only miss by a few shots
Williams said.
The team will be tested in the
next two tournaments only days
apart from each other. The first of
the two will be this weekend at
the UNC-Charlotte Invitational at
the Birkdale Golf Course.
Although Williams is unsure of
two spots on the squad he is sure

Bradley holds on to win
doral after missing an 8-
inch putt
MIAMI (AP) �Michael Bradley
sounded like anything but a
winner before the final round of
the DoralRydcr Open.
After Sunday's play, he not
only was the winner, but he did it
by bouncing back from perhaps
the shortest missed putt in the
history of professional golf.
"I'll go out tomorrow and give
it 110 percent Bradley said on
the eve of the final round in
which he would hold off John
Huston and Billy Mayfair by one
stroke. "Whether that's winning
or finishing 10th or finishing
fourth or fifth, there's not much I
can do he said.
Bradley was wrong in that
assessment. He did a lot on
Sunday in another wind-blown
round at the Blue Monster. His
only bogey of the day came on a
missed 8-inch putt on No. 11, yet
somehow he managed to regroup
and play the final seven holes one
under par to'win.
Golf
continued from page 10
that Shane Robinson and Kevin
and MarcMillcr will be traveling.
"We'll hold qualification rounds
this week to fill the other two
spots, it gives everyone a shot at
playing Williams said.
Stephen Siebenbrunner defeated his
opponent 6-3, 6-0.

"I was working on my
forehand for most of the day,
trying to improve. It was a nice
match to play because I could try
different things and not have to
worry about falling behind
Siebenbrunner said. "This is a
big win for us and having only a
few home matches, it's nice to
win here
Brett Rowley posted the best
match of the day, winning in
three sets. Rowley, the last man
on the court, played for the
victory decision. After being
down in the first set, he came
back to pull out a7-6 set, and then
he dropped the second 3-6. In
the thial set he won 6-3,

REC SERVICES
Intramural Softball set to begin
1 With the weather getting
' warmer and spring close at hand,
preparations are currently
' underway for intramural Softball,
- which is annually one of the most
- popular sports activities
' sponsored by Recreational
Services.
� All ECU students, faculty and
staff members are eligible to
3� participate. Spouses may
participate in the Co-Rec program
I only.
; The captains meeting for
� intramural Softball will be held on
� Tuesday, March 24, at 5 p.m. in
I Mendenhall Student Center,
j Room 244. Any individuals
interested in registering a team for
� participation in the league must
attend this meeting. Unaffiliated
players who do not have a team
are also invited to attend this
meeting for assistance in
placement on a team. This
� meeting is designed to inform
captains of intramural sports
policies and procedures, provide
' league information and explain
the process for signing up a team.
All teams must have at least one
representative present at the
meeting in order to guarantee a
spot in the league. League sign-
up will take place the following
day on Wednesday, March 25
from 10 a.m3:30 p.m. in 128
Student Recreation Center.
Competition will be offered in
0 a variety of skill divisions
designed to fit the needs and
interests of any member of the
ECU community. Leagues will
1 be available in Men's
�Independent Gold and Purple,
Fraternity Gold and Purple,
Men's Residence Hall Gold and
Purple, Women's Gold and
PurpleResidence Hall and.
Sorority. Gold leagues are
established ' for participants who
wish to play at a higher level of
skill while Purple leagues are
more recreational in nature.
League times will be available in
limited times ranging from 4 p.m.
-to 11 p.m. Monday-Thursday as
well as Sunday.
Due to facility space
limitations, it will be important for
team captains to clearly identify
days and times on which their
team can play and select a league
appropriately. The regular season
will begin on Monday, March 30
and will be followed by a single
elimination tournament in each
respective division. All games will
be played on the intramural fields
on the north and south side of
Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
Amateur Softball Association
(ASA) rules with intramural sports
modifications will govern all
games.
In addition to the regular
season and playoffs, the Softball
Preview will allow teams to get a
varied and competitive pre-season
play opportunity with several
other teams in a unique format.
The Softball Preview sign-up will
be conducted on registration day
and is available to a limited
number of teams.
One hundred teams in eight
different divisions battled it out
last year for championships that
were left unfinished due to heavy-
rains during the playoffs.
However, early indications have
revealed some of the top teams
and players. Pat "Legend"
Bizzaro, Professor of English and
ECU's version of Sparky
Anderson, boasts that he will have
the best team on campus.
Likely challengers will come
from a team known as Footphi in
past years and includes footballers
such as Morris Foreman, Ernest
Tinnin and Danny Gonzalez.
Zina Briley is talking big in the
Co-Rec division as she plans to fly
in superstar Allison Kemp, who is
student-teaching outside town,
and capture the mixed
championship.
In the women's division,
Hoophi features the lady
basketball players, and they have
won several consecutive
championships behind the
offensive power of Tomekia
Blackmon and Tracey Kelley.
Also in the hunt among the
women will be the infamous
Cheeze Nips, known for having
the most creative uniforms in
years and the noise created by
Meghann Vitt, Candicc Voigt,
Renee Larson, and Ellen "El
Dog" Day. Once again lost in the
shuffle of free agency and team
composition is the status of
megastar Vu "The Bomber"
Donie, who is seeking a nine-
figure contract to launch his home
runs into Ficklen Stadium's new
upper deck.

In ftry dreams, it was paradise. A week away from classes, from my roommate (and his obnoxious friends) and from
responsibility. I certainly wasn't going to let all those "Safe Spring Break" warnings get in my way. I should have known it
couldn't be that perfect. To begin with, I couldn't leave on Friday with the rest of the guys because of a Chem test. But when I
showed up for class my Chem professor put off our exam until the Monday after Spring Break. Now I was stuck with making a 12
hour drive to Florida alone�just me and the Chemistry book I knew I wouldn't open.
Wondering when I was
going to make myself study,
I hurriedly grabbed my bag
and jumped in the car.
Anxious to get my first
"REAL" Spring Break
underway, I guess I wasn't
paying attention to the gas
pedal. The Georgia State
Highway Patrolman was,
and my dad's gonna KILL
me for getting ANOTHER
speeding ticket.
About the time I hit the Florida
state line (more than two hours
behind thanks to the pit stop in
Georgia), it started to rain�and m
rain, and RAIN. Four straight
days! I felt like I was still in
Greenville! At least I'd finally got up
with the guys, and the beer in Florida was cheap! The good
news is that we could afford two cases each. The bad news is, I
tried to drink them both�in the same night. Not a problem I
suppose, except now I have to explain to my girlfriend who
Traci is and why her name is tattooed on my body. Still not a
problem if I knew, and if the tattoo wasn't infected already.
How many drunks remember to put antibiotic cream on a
tattoo?
By Thursday, everybody was broke and
too hungover to think about sunscreen.
But at least the sun was FINALLY
shining, and to the beach we went. I
decided it was time I tore my eyes
away from the thongs prancing by
(ever see the BATHING SUITS
down there?) and take a peek at
that Chemistry. That sunscreen
I'd forgotten? Melted all over my
Chem notes. That's okay, though,
because I got a great explanation on
chemical reactions from the doctor who
treated my blistered back.
' By Saturday afternoon, I'd decided I'd
' had enough. I'd long since run out of
cash, and the credit card had just enough
room to spare to cover the gas for home.
Twelve long hours later, I thought it was
finally over. Wrong again. In my haste to
get out of town, I forgot to close the window all the way. The
guy who lifted my stereo system while I was gone had no
problems remembering to close it for me on his way out,
though. No class, no rules, no problems, huh? Who would
have thought I'd be looking FORWARD to taking a Chemistry
exam? From now on, I'll pay more attention to that "Safe
Spring Break" stuff.

Stress BreaK
SpriNq
It's that time of year again. Do all our professors plan to give tests on the same day? How many projects can we possibly
get done before Spring Break? Why don't I ever start this stuff earlier? I can't believe how stressed I get at this time each
year. But the Center for Counseling and Student Development gave me some great tips to help me out this year:
TIME MANAGEMENT. Balance is important - time for school, work, family and fun.
TAKE CARE OF SELF physically, mentally and emotionally. Pay attention to health, diet and sleep. Exercise regularly.
REGULATE how many items are listed on a 'To Do" list and prioritize them. Check projects off as they are completed.
COMPARE SELF TO PERSONAL BESTS as opposed to the performance of others.
SET REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS for self and others.
FIND A PLACE on campus to sit quietly for five minutes, or pick out a brief walk nearby.
BE WILLING TO SAY "NO" when needed.
ASK FOR HELP!
FOCUS on an immediate goal. Work on it until it is completed.
BREAK WORK DOWN into manageable portions and do one thing at a time. �
RE-ENERGIZE through relaxation techniques.
ELIMINATE destructive self talk.
ORGANIZE work space so that things are easy to locate.
TALK to a significant other or call home or friends for support.
There will always be stress in my life, but thanks to this list, I know I can handle it. And when I get through this week I hit
the beach for Spring Break!
A SpriNq BrEaK Tole
The day is done, my story now told.
I just want a break, to rest my weary soul.
My exams are over, mid-terms are through.
What in the world is there left to do?
Recruitment still strong, graduation not long.
Career Opportunities??? Really come on.
I must do the work to reach my great star.
There is this office; it's helped so far.
A sprinkle of this, a trickle of that
they mix it together to help me at bat.
But they say there's one test I must still complete.
'Help me get ready many cry to this beat.
I can not believe that I have lost so much time.
A job search man really I have so much on my mind.
It's all so confusing and days seem so few.
But Career Services they tell me, has an awesome crew.
So I'll take my spring break, for resting is due.
But as I return I have got planning to do.
