The Student Government
Association recently appropriated
bi-annual funding to student orga-

According to Alan Stancill, co-
president of appropriations, in the
current bi-annuals only 23 organi-

the 23 organizations, one, Milan,
was denied funding.
Organizations who applied for
funding this year received more

Adult Student Association encourages
non-traditional student involvement
Carolyn Robbins Hyde
According to members of one orga-
nization on campus, age is no barri-
er to enjoying university life. The
Adult Student Association has
made it its mission to encourage
involvement from non-traditional
students who are balancing job,
work and school.
"The Adult Student Association
was established in the fall of 1993 to
help adult and commuter students
become more involved with univer-
sity life said Deborah J. Battle,
graduate assistant for student
development. "Our overall concern
is that all students feel comfortable
and a part of the university
Mary Embrey, an active member
of the organization, said that most
of the adult students she comes in
contact with have many of the same
concerns and worries.
"The majority of the non-tradi-
tional students are carrying a heavy
burden of balancing family, work
and school Embrey said. "Some
have either quit their jobs in order
to return to school or have to cut
back on the hours worked, lessen-
ing their incomes while putting out
additional necessary funds for their
education. The decision to return
to school was not an easy one to
make, and if the ASA can help
make their transition any less
stressful, then the efforts will be
Any student age 24 and above is
eligible to become a member.
"We strive to incorporate the
non-traditional student within the
general campus population Battle
According to Batde there is a
great need for an organization such
as this to assist the adult students,
especially those who have been out
of school for a number of years, in
feeling comfortable with their deci-
sion to get back into the main-
stream of school.
Providing guidance in many dif-
ferent areas for the non-traditional
students is among the many ser-
vices offered by the ASA. Students
seeking information about financial
aid, housing (in and around the
Greenville area), the availability of
child care, and other services such
as time management seminars,
locations and advantages of on-
campus dining facilities, transporta-
tion and parking information can
contact the ASA office for further
information. Also offered through
the ASA are study skills advice,
recreational facilities available and
the health services provided on

are especially proud of is the

In the actual process, De Marco
had to fill out a charge question-

What is your stance on the hog
operations and your thoughts on
hog waste pollution?
The city and the farmer need to come
to a compromise. It's not like we're
dumping hazardous waste, it's nitro-
gen. Simple chemistry could filter it
from the water. City and industry cause
approximately IS percent of the runoff.
The rest is caused by agriculture. A
sewage system should be built to filter the
runoff, while an emergency resources
fund is set aside and used if a problem
occurs. The money needs to be there and
readily available. Farmers aren't try-
ing to pollute the environment and peo-
ple aren't going to boycott bacon and
pork, but we've got to provide a better
balance between the two.
Do you foresee a working plan
that can adequately protect the
beleaguered tobacco farmer?
We need to make a commitment: art we
going to stand behind the farmer, or
turn with the country? We need to real-
ize that it's not the farmer that's causing
the tobacco problems - they're just the
suppliers of the raw material. ECU
and the hospital were built by tobacco
money. We owe it to him (the tobacco
farmer) to stand behind him. The gov-
ernment makes $22,000 on one acre of
tobacco, while the farmer makes about
$1,800. That's about a 20-1 ratio. The
farmer is at the mercy of the way people
use his resources; it's the additives that
they use to increase nicotine levels and
flavors that are killing people, not
The State Transportation bud-

What are your thoughts on this?
We've spent $20 million trying to

us out of the picture by putting Federal
Express in Greensboro. I'd like to see
more research done on GTP's develop-
ment. Highway 264 between Wilson
and Greenville shows a lot of promise
as a botential site to locate an air com-
plex. This would form a quadrangle
with Rocky Mount, Kinston, Greenville
and Wilson, and absorb most of the
growth. Would it benefit those who orig-
inally thought of putting it in Kinston?
No. Rut we are talking about what will
benefit the good of all.

operations and your thoughts on
hog waste pollution?
think we all are offended by the
odor of hog operations as well as the
pollution that's generated by them. We
need to utilize our scientific abilities to
minimize the odor that occurs as well as
find ways to better treat hog waste.
There's an incredible amount of water

Do you foresee a working plan
that can adequately protect the
beleaguered tobacco farmer?
Pitt County is the largest flu-cured
tobacco producing county in the largest
flu-cured producing slate in the largest
country that produces flu-cured tobacco
in the world. I think we have to recog-
nize the economic importance of tobacco
and find ways to help farmers offset
their loss. It may mean to provide farm-
ers with opportunities to grow more of
other crops. Tobacco is an important
industry to eastern North Carolina. The
loss of it without some offsetting eco-
nomic development would be cata-
strophic to this area.
The State Transportation bud-
get projected a $500 million cut for
the Kinston Global Trans Park.
What are your thoughts on this?
We have to be willing to invest in the
infrastructure if we are to create GTP
from the vision that it is to the reality
that it might become. I was disappoint-
ed when Federal Express didn't choose
to relocate in GTP. My belief is, had we
of had the infrastructure - the roads
and runway extensions - in place they
would have chosen us. I think a loss of
that particular project, along with these
additional funds, is causing a serious
question of the continued future of GTP.
I don't see how it can continue to sur-
vive without any major tenants or
improvements in access to highways.
In light of several scandals on
the Board of Transportation, such
as members resigning because of
suspected illegal influence, should
a different way of selecting board
members be considered?
The people who are appointed are
appointed from districts. They are
expected historically to look after people
in their district and that's the system we
have today. It makes a lot more sense in
terms of the suggestions that have been
circulated to minimize the size of the
board, as well as have other points of
view and other areas of expertise.

What is your stance on the hog

Hog pollution is a problem. We must

between farmers that abide by the law
and those that pollute. I always believe
that government should stay out of the
way until there is a problem, and I
believe we have reached that level.
Government should help solve the prob-
lem, not create the problem. We should

According to Dove, one of the
biggest problems with our rivers is
pollution. The pollution is mainly
caused by hog waste and the nitro-
gen it causes. More than 80 percent
of the nitrogen produced by hogs
goes into the environment, which
can upset the natural balance. To
prevent this from happening, the
hog waste can be used as an organ-
ic fertilizer instead of the inorganic
fertilizer that is used today.

environment Dove said. "The
government will only do what the
people make them do

People around the world last week held a demonstration to call attention to a place we often
forget about: Earth � you know, your home. Earth Day, began in 1970 by Gaylord Nelson,
has achieved its original intention of raised awareness about environmental concerns, and it
has let the political establishment know that something had to be done to control environ-
mental problems. All the problems, of course, have not been remedied, but the grassroots
efforts of Earth Day organizers have been tremendously beneficial.
Earth Day, however, is not just about pointing out what's wrong with Earth. It's about rec-
ognizing what's right. Greenville, your temporary home on earth, has a lot that's right. This
time of year, particularly, we can soak in the Emerald City's offerings and observe what is
Greenville has more to offer than the well-groomed greens of golf courses or the mani-
cured shrubs of shopping malls. The Town Common off of First Street is close to campus
and offers plenty of room to do whatever you want to do. You can throw Frisbees or foot-
balls; you can walk along the edge and look out the Tar River or you can just lie on the grass,
relaxing and staring up at the sky.
The Greenway is another place to get away for a while from traffic and smoky downtown
bars. It can be accessed from the commuter parking lot off of Tenth Street. It's a place
where walkers and runners can go and observe the beauty of nature, instead of smoke from
an old pickup truck.
Especially after exams, you may want a place where you can relax. Maybe getting tanked
downtown isn't what you had in mind. Hop on your bike or in your car and ride out to the
country sometime. Greenville's got a lot of it. The open country is a perfect place to reclaim
the solitude you often lose on campus.
There are plenty of other places around town where you can be a part of what Earth Day
celebrates. Like any relationship, however, you have to respect and take care of it. Earth
does its part for you. It provides endless opportunities for wonder and pleasure. It's up to
. you to be a good partner - year round.

Candidate responds to column
On Thursday, April 10, Jeff
Bergman wrote an editorial criticiz-
ing me � Ed Carter, former mayor
of Greenville � for the city's han-
dling of the Halloween riots during
� my tenure as mayor, I would like to
personally thank Bergman for the
'� column. Although it contained
; � many misstatements of the facts, it
'J did give me due credit for ridding
; East Carolina and the city of
K Greenville of a problem that had
been a menace to the community
I for many years prior to my adminis-
People from various parts of the
� United States were coming to
; Greenville on Halloween to enjoin
I a few dissident student in attacking
' law enforcement personnel and
i innocent citizens. Being an effec-
? tive mayor and leader, I duly
informed all troublemakers that, for
J the first time, decisive action would
be taken to deal with this idiotic
behavior. As a result of the action
taken under my leadership in 1988,
a number of persons were arrested
and no such problems have existed
since this incident Civic and stu-
dent leaders are now able to proac-
tively circumvent problems relating
to the Halloween celebration. This
is due solely to the effective and
decisive handling of the 1988 inci-
I will not dignify Bergman's
many outrageous allegations, but
the allegation that I have a problem
with college students exemplifies
just how far Bergman went in an
attempt to be sensational. I am the
only candidate running for the 6th
District Senate seat who has been a
college student. The incumbent,
Bob Martin, who he supports, has
not attended college, nor does he
possess a college degree; neither
does the Republican opponent,
ECU, North-Carolina third
largest university; ranks 13thtnitof
the 16 UNC campuses in terms of
the N.C. General Assembly's
appropriations per student. North
Carolina's teacher pay is at the bot-
tom 10 percent in the nation; thou-
sands of jobs are lost in our district
each year, my opponent has been in
elected office for 46 years; and the
General Assembly has experienced
budget surpluses during the past six
years � none of these problems
were addressed. I contend it is not
only time for a change, but that
Bergman, his colleagues and friends
should start now in supporting my
candidacy so as to ensure that I am
sent to Raleigh.
This is a no-lose situation for a good rhetorician. You
can claim that you're supporting MLK while subtly
slighting this achievement to honor him at the same
time � just say more should be done than changing a
section of Fifth Street. Just discredit this accomplish-
ment by claiming that the naming of a section of Fifth
Street after MLK isolates the black community living
in that area. The problem is that line of argument is
subtly racist (even arguably so).
Racism comes in an infi-
nite number of-shades �
from outright hatred to sub-
tle pickings by newspaper
reporters. This latest issue
has uncovered sentiments
that (to be perfectly honest)
I'm not surprised exist, but
which I can't help frowing
upon. And no matter how I write this,
Racism comes in

Politics touches everyone's life
Politics is not Just about
elections, etc. The realm of
politics dictates almost
every facet of life.
Politics. This word, to many col-
! lege students incites a yawn or apa-
� thetic glare. It really seems that the
general populace is very ignorant of
politics and policy issues � and
what is worse � no one seems to
care. This is a definite problem. It
! may not seem like a crisis, but in
fact, an unaware public is one of
the chief ills of our society today.
Politics is not just about
Republicans, Democrats, elections,
etc. The realm of politics dictates
almost every facet of life. People
who feel that politics is beneath
them or that it is not relevant to
their lives are truly disillusioned
Since everything we do is
touched by politics in some way,
shape, or form, it is the individual's
responsibility as a voter and as a cit-
izen to get to get clued in to what is
going on. That does not mean you
have to read The Wall Street Journal
everyday; it means at least know
the names of our state's two sena-
tors and have some idea of their
Political Science (POLS 1010)
should be a specific requirement
for the general college curriculum.
I think if the state deems it essen-
tial to uke Math 1065 and a science
lab for graduation, surely passing a
general course in government
should be necessary (and would
not be the unmitigated hell of the
former two classes � no offense to
my lab and math teachers). When
you have your diploma and you hit
the pavement, a basic knowledge
of governmental structure will be
of enormous use. Even if you don't
graduate and end up selling drugs
to the people that did (just kid-
ding), sooner of later politics (and
maybe a comprehensive legal
knowledge) will become a great
asset in your life.
Admittedly, "public apathy"
does lately seem to be the worn out
phrase of the day and its under-
tones are a tad bit preachy, but that
is because it is so important The
benefits of political knowledge (or
the disadvantages in the lack there-
of) cannot be fully and thoroughly
realized until some effort is made
to be in-the-know. Contrary to the
popular belief around here, being a
meat head will not lead to a very
fulfilling life. So make a little
effort�read the paper, watch the
news, take POLS 1010 � any-
thing. Do something.

you will have
the comfort of dismissing what I say as either self-
righteous or scoffing at it indifferently, saying I'm sim-
ply misguided or wrong.
But the fact of the matter is 2,000 Greenville resi-
dents, most of whom were black, signed a petition
which precipitated town council's decision to change
the section of East Fifth Street to Martin Luther King
On January 18 several hundred black residents
gathered in frigid and icy conditions to walk along the
section of Fifth Street that is to be changed. Two
white people were there.
Reporters have slightingly referred to the change as
a "crusade and have said the "white community
stood tall and helped support the issue Yes, two
white people showed up at the original march.
People have said that more should be done, that
just changing one section of a street isn't enough, that
it will further isolate the black community that com-
prises the majority of residents along that section of
Fifth Street. People have said that changing the Town
Common's name would be a more fitting honor for
Martin Luther King Jr. People have given dozens of
legitimate reasons why changing a small section of
East Fifth Street is not appropriate or right.
Unfortunately, most of those people are white, and
they simply don't want to applaud this achievement.
The black community proudly supports the
change, and yes, would certainly like to see more done
to honor the civil rights leader. And hopefully with the
support of the "white community" which "stood tall"
more will be done. This is the first step Greenville has
taken to honor King and hopefully more will follow.
In a city that honors its confederate dead with a
statue that gazes nobly and oh so judiciously down
from our courthouse, I'm surprised even a section of
Fifth Street was changed. Maybe all of us who feel
that changing a section of Fifth Street isn't enough
will support the black community in the next endeav-
or to honor their leaders and remember their heritage.
We're all in this together.
But don't knock this first change with rationalized
legitimacy. Honoring MLK is a good thing. It's good.
Let's quit bickering and finding reasons why it's not
appropriate and applaud this achievement. Let's not
overshadow the accomplishment by finding reasons
why this change is inappropriate, why it will cause has-
sles, why it shouldn't be done because it isn't enough
of a memorial, why there's better places to honor
MLK � let's stop bickering about it and simply say
thank you, MLK, for making our world a better place
to live in today. We're all in this together, so let's show
It astonishes me that anyone feels it is a fitting tribute
to divide a street in half (a division which happens
fall on racial lines) and give only a portion of it in hon
of a man who gave his life for racial equality and
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered because
he promoted racial equality through non-violent
means. He was murdered because a non-tolerant I
assassin wanted to quiet his words of peace. I
murdered because he had attracted an inter
following of thousands who took comfort in 1
and turned toward him for leadership. King
black hero. He was a hero for everyone. He was � I
for the black population, who were segregated
given second class rights, as well as a hero fari
who wanted segregation and racism eliminated,
words set a precedence for peaceful yet
change for other groups of people in this a
around the world. Today, in GreenvilIe,Xihgs
a hero for people on both the black end of Fifth!
and the white end.
The fact alone that Fifth Street itself is so
is a testament that the societal issues which
addressed more than 30 years ago still persist,
government may not support segregation any I
but people still make conscious decisions about
to live and who to associate with on the basis of r
went to high school in Greenville and I have a I
affection for the people of this town outside -
campus community. However, I also know first 1
that racism is very much alive. It's amazing what I
people will say when they are in a group of all
all black people. Some people mistakingly assume
that if they are in the company of all whites no one wiB
particularly object if they make racist comments like,
"the bad end of Fifth Street" or "across the rail road
Fifth Street, like many other streets and residential
areas of cities across the country, is divided. Perhaps,
this is why other cities have named large boulevard
and thouroughfarcs after King. It seems unfitting
somehow to divide a street or to select a portion of a
street which is associated, however unfortunately, with
any specific population.
A mother stood up at the city council meeting and
said she had tried to explain to her young daughter
what King stood for and why he was an important
man, worthy of the honor of having a street named
after him. After the mother explained to her daughter
about King's life and the civil rights movement, the
daughter turned to her mother and asked her why he
only got half a street. As the daughter grows older arid
hears racist remarks about areas like West Fifth Streft
and learns that many people still keep very dose social
circles, she will know why the street was divided;
College aged students don't often think past gradus
tion and career, but the day is coming when we
will have a child bom into this world pure, without a
knowledge of racist attitudes or traditions. Citizens j
Greenville, including ECU'S students, have a I
sibility not to carry forward the racist divisions whh
exist today. We have an obligation to broaden
social circles and object to racist remarks,
when they're made inside the quiet walls oft I
I think King would have wanted a street, any street
named for him which ran past a house filled with
white people, a house filled with black people, a house
filled with both white and black people, government
buildings, a public university, a private Catholk
school, black-owned businesses' and white-owned
businesses. King does not deserve a street named in
his honor simply because every other city already has
one or because it is an easy political decision to make.
Driving down the road and seeing the sign labeled Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Drive will never
remind me of the tremendous contributions of a great
leader or of how the civil rights movement effects me
today. Instead, it will always remind me of how divid-
ed my town is and of how tar we all still have to go.

9 OUT OF 10
BAREFOOT ON THE MALL
promises to entertain
assistant lifestyle editor
Radiohead might not be as para-
noid as their music and CD pack-
ages suggest If they aren't, it's all
right; their paranoia seems perfect-
ly genuine and well-placed. Where
Irish preach-rockers U2 have tried
to poke fun at the market and
technology cultures that dominate
the West, Radiohead just come out
and admit they're scared as hell.
This E.R could be yet another
marketing ploy by Capitol
Records, since Radiohead's last
album, O.K. Computer, transformed
the band from a struggling Brit-
rock group into the Pink Floyd and
U2 of the '90s. Radiohead certain-
ly act as if it's a marketing ploy,
since the front cover of the E.R
declares "this mini album is aimed
at the U.S.A Like Capitol
Records has a big, big weapon
aimed at our great nation, and they
hope to subjugate us all.
The CD package comes com-
plete with a faux questionnaire
asking bitterly ironic questions
such as, "And how do you see
yourself in fifty year's time?"
There's a quote from the Noam
Chomsky Reader in the back and
there are random terrifying
accounts of the anomie of modem
technomarketing culture posted
on various pages along with graphs
and charts that seem to have
The music is as beautifully
cryptic as the packaging. One
might think that b-sides and new
recordings would be sub-par com-
pared with the mystical songs of
O.K Computer, but quite the con-
trary, the stuff is gorgeous. Even
the watery Eno-esque instrumen-
tal "Meeting in the Aisle"
is exceptional. It brings to mind
some of the more striking intru-
mentals on R.E.M. albums, such as
"New Orleans Instrumental 1
"Pearly" is a rip-a-hole in your
brain lo-fi number that captures
the rawest aspects of Radiohead.
Thom Yorkc's growly, whiney
vocals are far from the too-beauti-
; ful-to-be-true fridge-buzz of their
early '90s hit "Creep
"A Reminder" and '
"Polythylenc (Parts 1&2)" both
have stong elements of O.K.
Computer in them. Both have the
power and urgency of the songs on
O.K. Computer. Melatonin and Palo
Alto are strong rockers a la The
Bends, or perhaps O.K.
If Radiohead keep making b-
side collections this good, the only
truly frightening thing will be the
grandiosity of their next full-length
record. Let's hope they aim that
one at the U.S.A too. I'll take a
bullet for Thom Yorke any day.

If you've heard Muddy Waters'
frantic, soul-stomping Newport
Folk Festival version of "I've Got
My Mojo Workin' (But It Just
Won't Work On You) then you
may have an idea of what the Blue
Rags sound like. Plug Muddy full
of amphetamines and sit him in a
New Orleans brothel circa the '20s
and the Rags could have durn well
been his backup band.
The Asheville natives, who are
appearing at Barefoot today,
released their debut album, Rag-N-
Roll, last fall to critical acclaim. The
album overflows with high-energy
testaments to the power of music,
all kinds of music: blues, jazz,
gospel, ragtime, country. Name it
the Blue Rags do it. Through 13
songs, the dance-happy drive of the
album never subsides as the band
tears through spirited originals and
properly covers songs from sources
as diverse as Leadbelly and Ira and
Gloriously raw as it is, Rag-N-

Perhaps oddly enough to some,
the Blue Rags are on Sub Pop

early '90s. Greg Dulli, frontman for

Student trainers show commitment to ECU athletics
Behind every talented athlete is an athletic trainer who is as important
to the athlete's performance as the athlete himself or herself. In fact,
much of the athlete's
performance is dependent
upon the athletic trainer
whose skills aid in
athletes for competition.
Josh Herman, an ECU
student athletic trainer,
was recently selected as
the recipient of a
scholarship awarded by
the National Athletic
"We have to make a lot of
decisions regarding the
athletes Herman said.

"Our jobs range from teaching prevention
of injuries and rehabilitation after surgery to

In order to be accepted into the athletic training program at ECU,
which has only 32 slots at any given time, there are rigid standards to
follow. Overali, a strict amount of discipline is mandatory. A student
athletic trainer must juggle time for classes and the clinical aspect of the
curriculum, which includes 800 hours of practical experience under a
certified athletic trainer (ATC). These hours are divided among time
spent with at least four different athletic teams while the student is in

sports medicine and athletic
training program of ECU, time
management is the most
necessary skill for anyone

"All of our students are very
active and socially involved in
things like fraternities,
sororities and the National
Guard. These activities, plus all
the demands they're forced to
meet in the curriculum, take
exemplary time management
Most of the student athletic
trainers further their education
after graduation by seeking a
masters degree and becoming a

taking the NATA certification

degree is necessary for anyone

"We took each team as if they
were going to give us a run said
Jami Bendle, senior pitcher.
Of all of the teams that will be
competing for the title, Head
Coach Traccy Kee expects
Auburn to be among the most
challenging to beat.
The team that has been the
most challenging according to
senior right fielder Dawn Conrad,
would be Virginia. Teammate Jen
Halpern believes UMBC will be
among the most challenging of
teams in the tournament.
"Any of the six teams has a
chance at winning the
tournament, the conference is
really equal Conrad said.
One thing that has helped the
Lady Pirates be successful this
season is their ability to work
together as a team.
"Everybody plays an
important role, we feed off each
other and help each other out
While the team has been lead
throughout the season by the
strength of its pitching staff,
success has come through the
efforts of the team as a whole.
"No one specific person has
been the team leader; each

us a good team. We are hoping to
win the Big South and make it to

If the team wins the
conference championship it will
host the MEAC champion. To
make it to the NCAA regionals,
they will need to win best out of

the Lady Pirates. Perhaps this will
be the season that will go down in
history for the team.

ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR
The Chicago Bulls camp has been
buzzing with rumors all season
long. As the NBA playoffs begin,
many expect the Bulls to take
another championship, but what
will happen after that is anybody's
guess. Michael Jordan has once
again threatened to leave
basketball for good after this
season, and this time it's not for
Jordan has repeatedly said that
he will not play for anybody
except Chicago Bulls Head Coach
Phil Jackson. The Bulls are not
saying much regarding Jackson's
future in Chicago.
Many forget that people
besides Jordan contributed to all
of their championship victories.
The NBA is filled with talented
players, and if Jordan was the only
Bull who could play, the Bulls
would be run over by the other
teams. A good head coach is
necessary for a good team,
something the Bulls management
seems to have forgotten. Look at
what Larry Bird has been able to
do with the Indiana Pacers his
Jackson has brought discipline
to some of the rowdier Bulls, most
notably Dennis Rodman. When
he first came to the Bulls,
Rodman showed everybody why
he was called "Dennis the
Menace Thanks to Jackson's
efforts to get him (relatively)
under control, which included
bonuses for good behavior,
Rodman is a much more
productive member of the Bulls.
The Bulls are also on the fence
about where Scottie Pippen will
play next year. There are rumors
that he will be traded to another
team or not even signed at all.
For yean, Pippen has been the
unsung hero of Chicago. He has
played solid basketball, providing
well-rounded support for Jordan.
When Jordan left to play baseball,
Pippen stepped into Jordan's
shoes rather well. Under Pippen,
the Bulls went to the playoffs,
though they weren't able to take
the championship. Critics whined
about Jordan's loss and blamed
Pippen for the loss. The fact is,
Pippen was the only person who
kept the Bulls from sliding into
Both Pippen and Jackson
deserve more respect than they
are getting. The two men have
done a lot for the Bulls and should
have a secure future there.
An experience to last a lifetime.

Team prepares to
send off five starters
SENIOR RI EH
With the end of the Pirates
Baseball season quickly
approaching, five senior players
arc getting closer and closer to the
end of their baseball careers here
Of the five seniors leaving
Harrington Field this spring two
have CAA Player of the Week
bids this season. Randy Rigsby
picked one up earlier in the
season on March 16, and Ryan
Massimo grabbed the other on
April 6. Massimo picked up his
Player of the Week award after
going 9-12 with seven RBI's and
three runs scored in an ECU three
game sweep against ODU.
Billy Benson has been on the
team for all four of his years here
at ECU but did not get a shot at

The Pirates currently

Jamison takes quick leap toward career with pros
CHAPEL HILL (AP) � Antawn
Jamison is convinced he's ready
for pro basketball, and he'll be
heading to the NBA with degree
The national player of the year
said Monday he'll forgo his senior
year at North Carolina, passing up
a chance to become the Atlantic
Coast Conference's career scoring
leader to enter the NBA draft on
"When it was time to leave it
was difficult to swallow because
these three years have probably
been the best three years of my
life Jamison said.
"It is a lot more difficult than I
thought it would be
The 6-foot-9 forward was
joined at a news conference by
coach Bill Guthridge, former
coach Dean Smith, parents Albert
and Kathy Jamison and several
"A big reason you are in
coaching is you want what's best
for your players Guthridge said.
"There aren't many that get this
opportunity. So you are thrilled for
Jamison is the 13th player to
declare early for the NBA draft,
joining such players as Mike
Bibby of Arizona, Paul Pierce of
Kansas and Robert Traylor of
Michigan. Among the 13 are two
high school players.
Smith will advise
underclassmen to turn pro if
they're projected in the draft's top
five. The former coach did most
of the legwork for Jamison, calling
at least 16 NBA teams to gauge
interest. He likes what he heard.
Jamison, the school's first
national player of the year since
Michael Jordan in 1984, said he
would get his college degree in
African studies after two sessions
of summer school, meaning he
will graduate two semesters ahead
of his class.
"The most important thing for
me is no matter what happens I
have the opportunity to graduate
this summer he said.
"That was the most important
thing about coming to school, to
get a degree and maybe having a
chance to play in the NBA. I am
so close to getting them both at
the same time it was an
opportunity I couldn't pass up
Jamison, the ACC player of the
year, averaged 22.2 points and
10.5 rebounds this season,
becoming the first North Carolina
player since Billy Cunningham in
1964-65 to average a double-
He finished seventh on North
Carolina's scoring list and fourth in
rebounding. This year he set
season marks for field goals and
rebounds and was second in
points in leading the Tar Heels to
a 34-4 record and their second
straight Final Four. North
Carolina lost to Utah in the
Jamison said there was no
chance he would withdraw his
name before the draft, even if the
NBA owners lock out the players.
"I have made my decision and
there's no turning back now he
said. "I am aware there could be a
negative thing with the lockout
but I'm willing to take that
Guthridge said Vince Carter
will decide within two weeks
whether he'll also turn pro after
his junior season. The last time
North Carolina lost two players
early to the NBA was in 1995,

Rugby team defeats University of
Maryland to complete season
The East Carolina Rugby team
finished off another successful
semester with a convincing defeat
of the University of Maryland
Terrapins 31-0 on Saturday April
25. The game began under sunny
skies and saw a determined
Terrapin team use frequent Pirate
penalties to keep ECU out of
their try zone. ECU would put the
mental mistakes behind them
though and take a 7-0 lead into
half-time after a late score by Matt
Oathout and a conversion by
Brian Best. The second half
would see quite a different Pirate
squad which put the earlier
mental mistakes behind them and
dominate the bigger Maryland
team. Using superior technique to
offset the larger squad of
Maryland, the Pirates ran off 24
second half points to put the
finishing touches on an
Best led all scorers with two
trys and three conversions while
Kendall Jones and Carl Bricnzi
each added scores. The second
game of the day saw another ECU
victory as the second team of the
Pirates beat the Terrapin second
squad 24-0. The two easy
victories came as a surprise to the
"Yeah, we were surprised
said club president Brad Palmer.
"Maryland is traditionally a very
strong team. Fro the team to
perform the way it did today says
a lot about the program we have
The Pirate rugby team was
happy to end with a victory to cap
a nearly flawless season. The
season had such highlights as
winning the twentieth annual St.
Patricks's Day tournament in
Savannah, GA and seeing many
new players step up and fill gaps
for injured players.
"We were all pretty healthy all
year but when we did have
injuries, the young players
performed up to the same level as
many of our veteran players
The Pirates are looking
forward to the summer off before
a tough fall season, but the team
will be ready, according to team
captain Robert Manning.
"We are anxious for the fall due
'to some unfinished business with
UNC-Chapcl Hill and will be
working hard to make next season
even better than this one said
State tops Carolina in 11-inning baseball contest
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) �Jake Weber hit
a grand slam in the top of the 11th inning to
propel North Carolina State to a 9-4 win over
The win Sunday helped the Wolfpack (31-
18, 10-8 Atlantic Coast Conference) avert a
three-game sweep by the Tar Heels (32-17,
12-8) in the weekend series.
North Carolina shortstop Brian Roberts set
a conference record with his 51st stolen base of
the season. Roberts also tied Chad Holbrook
for the school record with 98 career stolen
The game was tied 3-3 after nine innings
and each team added a run in the 10th to tie it
In the top of the 11th, Andy Ferguson and
Josh Ballard led off with walks off reliever
Ryan Earey. Michael Homey relieved Earey
but Brian Ward hit a grounder that was
misplayed by Roberts to load the bases before
Weber cracked a home run over the left-field
fence. The Pack added an insurance run later
in the inning for a 9-4 lead.
Bubba Scarce shut out the Tar Heels in the
11th to cam the win. Earey took the loss for

are two very hot
careers right now
said Judy Davis,
secretary with ECU's Career Services.
"Basically any career that involves
computers is hot right now
The hottest fields for college
graduates include engineering,
accounting, computer science,
education, medicine and health
sciences. At ECU, majors offered that
involve some sort of computer
technology include education,
occupational therapy, industrial
technology and business. According to
ECU's Career Services, these fields
show up in a list of the most popular
majors at ECU.
Even more specifically, there are hot
careers within each field. U.S. News
and World Report reported that in the
field of accounting, a business
evaluator is in great demand and has
the possibility of advancement. In
engineering, a computer engineer has
the highest starting salary out there
right now. In the field of health care, a
physician's assistant is second only to a
computer engineer in starting salary
and is in great demand.
Hot and cold careers can also be
broken down into gender categories as
well. According to the U,S. Bureau of
Labor Statistics, men are rapidly
acquiring jobs in the fields of
engineering and computer science. On
the other hand, women are rapidly
taking jobs in the fields of education
and health science.
According to the Occupational
Outlook Handbook, health care will
account for almost one-fifth of all job
growth until the
year 2005. Another
will be adding 1.3

year 2005. In
