"We are in this field to record and understand history � Frank Gantelas, Archaeologist
An underwater scholar conducts research at the Western Ledge Wreck in Bermuda in 1992. Students in the Maritime History program must complete scientific diving courses in addition to learning how to dive.

Maritime History, program one of two in the nation

Archaeologists and historians are plentiful on campuses around the world, but at
East Carolina University a rare program provides a training ground for future
archaeologists and historians devoted exclusively to underwater research and
The Maritime History and Nautical Archaeology program makes ECU one of only
two universities located in the United States to offer a program of this type.
Started in 1981 by Drs. Watts and Stills in the history department, the Maritime
History program prepares to receive a master's degree in history with an emphasis, of
course, on maritime history and underwater archaeology.
"It is exciting to see a craft come together as you are mapping it out after recording
the information in a zero visibility dive said Jenna Watts, a student in the program.
For three weeks this summer Watts worked on a project along the Patuxent River and
its tributary St. Leonard's Creek in Maryland, investigating a gunboat possibly dating
from the War of 1812. For most of the students working in Maritime History a project
usually can develop into thesis papers.
This seems to be the case for Sarah Milstead. She will be taking part in the Hunter
Galley project Sept. 3 through Oct. 1. "This program gives you practical experience
in a historical reference. It gets you ready for the real world in terms of hands-on expe-
One part of this practical experience comes from the rigorous task of obtaining a
scientific diving certificate.
"The certification is a regulatory measure authorized by the Academy of
Underwater Science that goes beyond recreational diving said Steve Brodie, one of
the instructors of the course. "We practice different aspects of diving such as using
underwater communication, zero visibility diving, and dry suit training While this
course is a must for graduate students in Maritime History and Nautical Archaeology,
the certification is also used in many other fields as well.
Frank Cantelas, head archaeologist of the program, said many people are uncertain
as to what separates Maritime History and Nautical Archaeology. "There are two
main differences between 'us' and 'them Cantelas said. "We are in this field to
record and understand history, while 'treasure hunters' are strictly in it for the money.
The other difference is that we care and strive to preserve the site itself instead of
destroying the craft for financial purposes
One way this program makes history come to life is in the conservatory labs. The
buildings consist of a wet and dry lab in order to preserve artifacts found on wrecks
along the east coast by the department and, in some cases, by the N.C. Underwater
Archaeology Unit. At one rime, the conservatory lab helped in the restoration of a can-
non thought to be from the legendary Queen Anne's Revenge, the flagship of the
pirate Blackboard lost in the Beaufort Inlet.
"We are continually trying to give something back to the community Cantelas
Besides helping the NCUAU, the Maritime History and Nautical Archaeology pro-
gram also works with museums like the Maritime Museum at Beaufort and the
Bermuda Maritime Museum where a field school is held yearly.

Eastern North Carolina has been
chosen to facilitate a community
outreach program. With the pur-
chase and renovation of the former
Voice of America site, the School
of Medicine will expand education
and training to both the agricultur-
al and medical communities.
"Farming is the second most
dangerous occupation in America;
mining is the foremost dangerous.
Every year, approximately 50 peo-
ple die from farm injuries in NC
and 2,000 are disabled. About 65
percent of farm deaths are heads of
households said Dr. Byron

in excess of $195 million. In an
effort to minimize injuries and
reduce costs, ECU, in conjunction
with NCSU and NC A&T State

joined forces to embark on a
The program will unite medical
and agricultural experts to study-
how to prevent agricultural
injuries and improve the quality of
life for North Carolinians involved
Agriculture is the "lifeblood of
this area according to
Burlingham. Most of the 42 coun-
ties east of 1-95 are centrally locat-
ed around Greenville, making this
the ideal place for the pilot pro-
gram in agro-medicine.
"North Carolina has the second
largest rural population in the
United States. It is the third most
diversified state in the nation with
respect to agricultural products
The agro-medicine program
will help to reduce the incidence
of agricultural injuries and illness-
es, thus saving the lives of farm
workers and farm children as well
as saving in health care costs.
After renovation, the site will
house the interlectural headquar-
ters and contain lab facilities that
do not exist anywhere in the
Students will find expanded
opportunities through this pro-
gram. The agro-medicine program
will focus on many areas of study
offered through ECU and the
School of Medicine including:
family medicine, occupational
medicine, emergency medicine,
internal medicine and preventive
medicine. "Additional training will
be available in such departments
as psychology, sociology, anthro-
pology and health sciences said

the issue of equity. Farmers are

The chancellor's scholarship
pays out to its recipients a total of
$20,000 during their four year stay
at the university along with a
$1,000 scholarship from the univer-
sity student bookstore.
The eight high school seniors
who received chancellor's scholar-
ships were the most that ECU has
given out in a single year. Several
hundred students from the Atlantic
seaboard and the
Midwest applied for the
awards. Meeting the
January 15 deadline for
submission, the qualify-
ing students had to have
a minimum of a 3.5 GPA
and a 1300 SAT score in
the preliminary round.
"Out of the some 300
applicants, 75 are asked
to come to EGO to par- file
ticipate in a second
interview said Debbie
James at the admissions office.
In the second round of competi-
tion for this scholarship, the stu-
dents were asked to write an essay
for the scholarship committee to
review. The essay consisted of the
following question: "Describe your

Many believe that the survey
reading machines arc adjusted to
throw out extreme choices and
count only the remaining five.
Others say it's the middle circle,
no.4, one should stay away from
because it means undecided, and it
is the one that is thrown out.
"I have always heard that rumor
about not marking the extremes
said Ben Kiev, junior. "When it is a
professor you really thought was
great, you throw in a couple of good

hurt them anyway
Besides the confusion of which
circles are counted is another con-
fusion: What, if anything, are the
surveys used for?
"I don't think they are used at
all. I think they (the university)
docs them just to say they did
said Damon Werwie, junior.
But Dr. Robert Thompson,
director of planning and institution-
al research, says all seven circles are
accounted for and weigh heavily on
a professor's career.
Evaluations are so heavily val-
ued that ECU began them approx-
imately 10 years before the UNC
system required their use.
"What we look for are trends �
is someone's evaluations improving
or declining?" Thompson said.
"Just because someone marks low
scores for a professor, it does not
mean the professor will no get
tenured. Instead, it is entered with-

receives over a period of time

the example that if one marks no. 7
and another person marks no. 1,
then the item mean is a four for the
professor. The same item mean can
be generated if one person marks
no. 3 and another person marks no.
"That's one iittprbA ement in the
style of the new SOIS surveys over
the previous format Capen said.
The former ones didn't give us
distributions of responses, only
means and standard deviations.
"The new format iics all three

There have been instances where

And tenure is not always
received. A professor who does not
have tenure is under a two-year
contract with the university, and
when the contract has reached
maturity, an evaluation occurs to

ed tenure, he is eligible to teach
one more year with ECU before

Tenure is important to profes-
sors for two reasons. Not only does
it allow them to settle into a career
with the university without risk of
unemployment, it also provides
them with academic protection

occur. The only thing that anyone

Kenneth Tippette, senior planner.

Student Health Center offers HIVAIDS screening
HIVAIDS screenings are now
offered free to students at the
Student Health Center. It is esti-

students are sexually active, and
one in 500 has the HIV virus.
"I hope that students will take

Zophy said that if students have
engaged in any kind of high risk
behavior, they should be tested.
If students have the virus and
are living in an unhealthy way, it
will make their immune systems
weaker Zophy said.
The process is simple. Students
can call anytime to make
an appointment to be

Summer road repairs alter 10th street
Construction finished in
A recent road resurfacing project on
10th Street around the university area
was met with minor delays and may
not see completion before late
The Department of
Transportation began the revamping
project in July to repair worn asphalt,
cracks in the surface and. overall
rough driving conditions of the street,
but delays in the road work could
cause the project to spill over into the
beginning of the school year.
"The work began two or three
days late so the crew will work
Saturday and Sunday (Aug. 8-9) so
that repaving can begin Monday or
Tuesday (Aug. 10-11) said Wayne
Nottingham, the resident engineer
for the construction division of the
DOT. "Repaving is scheduled to
begin on Monday and we hope to fin-
ish by Friday so that the lane striping
will be completed before the students
return Nottingham said.
Crews scraped the old surface dur-
ing July and then restriped the lanes
which created some question as to
when the laying of the new surface
would occur. According to
Nottingham, the striping served to
relieve traffic confusion and main-
tain the regular traffic patterns of
the street during the time between
scraping and paving the road. But
completion of the project before the
mass return of students begins later
this month remains a question.
Resurfacing should cause only
minor inconvenience to drivers sim-
ilar to those experienced during the
scraping phase of the road work.
Drivers will have access to one lane
in both directions as the paving pro-
gresses opposed to the usual two
with a turning lane. Although cur-
rent traffic may encounter slow-
downs no major problems are
expected, but if the work runs over
into the ECU fall move in dates
more severe complications could
Nottingham expressed confi-
dence that the work will not inter-
fere with the heavy university traf-
fic, but his optimism comes with a
request, "If it rains it will have a
negative impact. Bear with us while
we complete the project
Rain will not only delay the
workers, but will wash away the
painted lines, causing more confusion
to newcomers and slower traffic
The 10th St. resurfacing project, initially planned to be completed before students returned for the fad semester, meets delays.

Sidewalks laid over footpaths
off grass tougijob
Ernest Williams probably can't tell you whether the
road is paved with good intentions, but he can tell you
the sidewalks are. With this in mind, it is hard to imag-
ine why everyone must walk beside the sidewalk
instead of on it.
Williams is the mason supervisor in the facilities ser-
vices department. One of his responsibilities is running
sidewalks to better accommodate foot traffic.
To lessen the number of dirt paths created by short-
cuts, the department lays sidewalks to cut across lawns
in their place. And when paths are pre-existing, to
reroute traffic, walks are added between the ones that
are heavily used and near in proximity to each other.
"When you to go a place, the first impression is what
will always be embedded in your mind; if it has a nice
landscape and is clean, it will receive a positive image
Williams said. "Like someone's home, for instance.
When a home is nice and neat, your experience there
is totally different than it is in a disorganized, cluttered
Five and one-half miles of sidewalk cover cast cam-
pus alone. Some are concrete and some are brick.
While next to each other, they offer a splash of color
and arabesque to ground cover, separately they have
values of their own.
Where concrete might require less labor and last
longer, brick sidewalks, like the one in front of Wright
Circle, are more flexible when irrigation and electrical
lines are beneath them.
"Brick can be removed without much effort when a
water line or steam pipe needs repair, and the same
piece can be reinstalled without buying any new mate-
rials, unlike concrete, which takes sawing to remove,
and can crack or break Williams said.
Dr. George Harrell, vice chancellor for administra-
tion and finance, said that he wishes people would real-
ize the sidewalks are put in for their benefit and should
be "utilized instead of creating bare ground paths just
to save a few steps
Footpaths like this one near the Erwin Building pose a problem for personnel uncertain of whether or not to pave every path on campus.

oiling with a MTV VP
ECU graduate Mark Kemp lives out his life-long dream
editing Rolling Stone Magazine and now at MTV
A M A N I) A A I .S I I N
Imagine yourself having lunch with Puff Daddy
before a photo shoot with the Spice Girls and finish-
ing your long day off by relaxing in your elegant
apartment in Brooklyn, N.Y.
What is a fantasy to many is a reality for ECU
graduate Mark Kemp, Vice President of Music
Development at MTV and former senior editor of
Rolling Stone Magazine.
To say that Kemp has been
successful in his career would
be a vast understatement. This
Ashboro native has experienced
jobs many will only dream of.
It was in 1996 that Kemp's
career began to flourish after
being offered the position of
senior editor at Rolling Stone
Magazine. After three short
months, the 38-year- old was
offered the position he had
always dreamed of�music edi-
During his.stay at Rolling
Stone, Kemp put many stars on
the cover of Rolling Stone
including Marilyn Mansoh, The
Spice Girls, Eddie Veder, Puff
Daddy, Beck and Tu Pac.
It was during his time at
Rolling Stone that Kemp real-
ized what direction his life had
taken and what a success he had
become. He recalled a time
when he was sitting in his office
and the man who he had
admired much of his life,
I lunter S. Thompson, appeared
outside his window holding a
drink in one hand and a ciga-
rette in the other.
"That's when it hit me that I
was at Rolling Stone Kemp
said. "There I was at the place I
had always fantasized about

cess is simple, "I just set out to

It was a dream Kemp had
always carried with him, even
through his five-year academic
career at ECU, where he
majored in English and
minored in philosophy. Though
Kemp enjoyed writing and the
guidance of two professors, Alex
Albright and Bill Hallberg, his true
love was still music and the overall
experience of being away from
home and, of course, his dream to work at Rolling
As Kemp reflected back on his days at Rolling
Stone, he spoke of an interview he had with
Morrissey when he had asked who the stars idol was
while growing up. He had been amazed as

eyes as he told him about his days growing up when

he would retreat into his room at night and place the

He realized at that moment that stars are

At MTV, Kemp
and his team of writers are responsible for creating a
variety of shows including The Smashing Pumpkins
Ultra-Sound and The
Morning After, a show about
how stars deal with death.
In addition to working at
MTV Kemp is writing arti-
cles on the side for the New
York Times. His latest pro-
ject is about the new rise of
southern music and how
southerners work their guilt
into their music.
The road to success was
not short and for Kemp it
meant working in a variety
After his graduation from
ECU in '83, Kemp moved
to Greensboro to find a job
as a reporter. His first
attempt failed and he
moved back to Greenville to
play in the band he had
played with during his years
at ECU. But, in 1984 he was
offered a job with the
Burlington Daily News
Times. After many heated
discussions with his band,
which was obviously not
going to move to a higher
level, Kemp accepted the
While at the Burlington
Daily News Times, Kemp's
dreams to write for maga-
zines flourished. In 1987

and book publishing semi-
nar at New York University
he made the choice not to

The transition from a
small town in North
Carolina to New York was
not an issue for Kemp. He
had visited New York many
times to visit friends and
could remember when a
round trip ticket could be purchased for $90.
The move paid off in '86 when Kemp was
offered a job writing for Discover Magazine.
While writing for Discover, Kemp found plea-
sure in writing articles on the side for magazines
such as The Village Voice and Option.
In 1991 the editor of Option magazine stepped
down and Kemp was offered the position. He
accepted and made his next big move that took
him across the country to Los Angeles, CA.
During his years at Option, Kemp transformed
the small magazine into a glowing success by
putting "less obscure people and more well

Persuading the earth to reveal our secrets
Dr. David Phelps
works at Croatan site
In a back room amidst fragments of
pottery, tobacco pipes and lead shot
from muskets, I find an older gen-
tleman in an Oxford shirt. We
shake hands and he escorts me into
a neat, tastefully decorated office
with a clay mask and lots of degrees
hanging on the wall.
The soft-spoken Dr. David
Phelps is an archeologist of the
truest sort. He was a professor and
director of archeology at ECU until
a few years ago. He retired from
teaching after twenty-six years.
He's been in the business of arche-
ology for forty years and he's not
finished yet. Although he is fin-
ished teaching, he continues his
work at ECU doing research.
One project Phelps works on is
the legend of the lost colony, one of
North Carolina's greatest myster-
ies. What happened to all those
people centuries ago who disap-
peared without a trace? Why did
they write "Croatan" on that tree?
If anyone ever finds the answers to
questions like these, it will be
archeologists like Phelps. He is cur-
rently involved in several archeo-
logical research projects, one of
which is a coastal investigation of
Croatan, which was, for some time,
the capital of the Native American

ject is to thoroughly investigate

through 1500 A.D and maybe
even earlier. We have also found
things which date around 1650 to
1720 A.D. which was about the
time of colonial contact
The coastal digs are challenging
and researchers have to work
around tourist seasons and academ-
ic schedules, when dig crews may
be hard to get together. The teams
consist of students, graduate stu-
dents, professional archeologists
and ECU alumni. When tourists
don't clog the area, the projects also

Summer spent with state medical examiners office
Senior biology major
takes part in autopsies
Michael D. McElwain
For most students, this summer was spent
on getting that perfect tan at the beach,
watching reruns on television or visiting
family and friends. One East Carolina stu-
dent, however, has a different story to tell.
Kamlyn Jones, a senior biology and pre-
med student at ECU, had the opportunity
to travel and learn about our state and fed-
eral government. She describes the experi-
ence as rewarding and fun but also likened
it to a regular 40-hour work week.
Jones worked for the Institute of
Government and enjoyed a summer
internship with the North Carolina medical
examiners office. As a member of the
Institute, she visited state and federal gov-
ernments. While in the medical examiners
office, she helped work on autopsies.
'This watching autopsies has helped
me with anatomy. It was a very unique
experience Jones said. "It's something
you would have not missed if given the
Out of 250 applications, Jones was one
of 20 chosen to intern with the Institute.
She started the process with an application
in January, had an interview competing
against 100 to 200 people in March, and
was told she had a position as a state intern
in late April. That was when things got
"It was a 10-week program and we cov-
ered a lot Jones said.
Though primarily with the medical
examiners office, Jones fit in a lot of other
activities as well. She attended weekly
seminars on such topics as cloning, sex
education in public schools, and morals and
ethics in politics. She also spent time visit-
ing different divisions of the state govern-
ment and attended task force meetings
such as child fatalities.
While in Raleigh, Jones stayed with the
other interns at Meredith College. Rising
at 5:30 in the morning and returning to the
dorm after 5 p.m. made for a long day, but
Jones still found time to unwind.
"We got to relax some and watch
movies she said. However, the work is
what she enjoyed the most.
Just a week prior to the deadly shootings
on Capitol Hill, Jones traveled to
Washington, D.C. There, she had the
opportunity to meet with the local repre-
sentatives in the House and Senate.

internships at the State Medical Examiner's Office

fun Jones said. The "fun" included not
only the meetings on Capitol Hill, but also
a private tour of the White House where
she met Buddy, the President's dog and a
visit to Washington think tanks like the

to take tours of Central Prison and
Women's Prison and she attended a
reception for the state interns at the
governor's mansion where she met
Because of her interest in biolo-
gy, Jones enjoyed working in the
medical examiners office with other
interns. She spent time in the vari-
ous divisions at the office and went
over old cases. But it was when she
went to the scene of an accidental
death that proved to be one of her
most interesting experiences.
"Visiting a death scene was unique
and kind of morbid Jones said.
Due to reasons of confidentiality,
Jones could not elaborate on what
happened or give many details of
the case. She said she had the
opportunity to go to the scene while
helping a medical examiner investi-
Back in Greenville, Jones is relaxed and
happy to be home. The 20 year-old
Washington, N.C. native smiles and her
voice is hurried with excitement as she tells
about her summer work. Her voice changes
and she gets serious, however, when she
talks about being at home.
"It was really fun, but I am extremely
happy to be at my apartment Jones said,
adding that she is ready for her next semes-
ter here at ECU.
Right now, Jones hopes to go on to med-
ical school and she is interested in family
medicine and medical missions at home
and abroad. The internship has helped her
"If nothing else, the experience has
helped me meet people and meet top dogs
in the state Jones said.
This is actually the second internship
for Jones. The first one was during the
summer between her junior and senior year
at high school. She had the chance to work
with the American Heart Association as an
intern at ECU. She worked in the Brody
Building at the ECU School of Medicine
and the experience helped her in deciding
to choose ECU for her degree.
The opportunity for her latest intern-
ship may have not come along at all.
"Most interns in this program come
from Chapel Hill since that's where the
Institute for Government is located Jones
said. "If not for Mrs. Carr, I would not have
found out about this

their semester or year oversees.
Got sooo homesick this morning - they had a big get
together with a bunch of host families, and I felt sooo lost
It got a little bit better, though.
I got coerced into softbalt and had fun despite myself,
and now I don't dislike the sport so much anymore.
Well, enough of the bad news, I suppose. Classes are
pretty comfortable now - at this school each class only
meets once a week for about an hour and a half. Most of
the class work gets done outside of class, though, as the
students are expected to study on their own. Right now
most of my classes are Japanese language classes - con-
versation, listening, and reading and writing. The books
for these classes arc way better than the books at ECU.
They are actually written in a way that makes sense.
So tar the only problem I've had is that the kanji (writ-
ing) class that I was in went way over my head � I needed
to know about 170 kanji for that class and I knew maybe
45 or so I don't remember the kanji very easily, and
since I don't remember those first 45 the first time, I
opted to drop to the first class to make sure I learned
them correctly. (Either way I get the same credit for it, I
just want to make sure I learn them instead of BSing my
way through a tougher class.)
But at least now I've got something to study - before,
I just plain didn't have anything to do. Now most of my
free time is spent catching up to the rest of the Japanese
students. I actually started class about a month and a half
late so I've got a bit of catching up to do.
Graphic design class is a litde different - me and James
are actually enrolled in a graduate level class here but
it's okay because we arc going over things that we learned
in the first year at ECU. Graphic design is a lot different
over here I haven't even figured out how yet, but I just
know that it is.
So far, I've only been to one art class. The
graphic design teacher, Shimakage-sensei,
took me and James out to dinner the other
night so that we could work on my schedule.
He's a pretty cool guy - while we were sit-
ting there waiting for the eel to arrive, we
played around with Shimakage-sensci's digital camera.
He made James look like a demon and stuff, it was pret-
ty funny. Here in Japan, James said that it was expected
that the professors take their students out for dinner and
such Shimkage-scnsei tried to get me to drink some the
other night, but I was still sick from before. '
James and I also got a job teaching English to this one
lady for two hours a week or so. This lady's daughter is
getting married to an American and she wants to be able
to speak English at the wedding, so she's asked us to
teach her. Pay is going to be pretty good, too, about 8,000
yen each day (about $60).
Basically, if James can't make it to a session, I'll go in
his place, and whomever teaches on a particular day gets
the money. Here in the dorm, though, we got a pretty
mixed bag. Me, James and Adam all come from the same
university - we're the only Americans in this part of town,
it seems. James kinda' stands out from the crowd with his
red hair, Adam just shaved his head bald and we're all so
darn tall. But a lot of the other students here in the foreign
students dorm speak English too - the guy sitting next to
me now is Chris - he's from Canada, and knows four lan-
guages. The four of us usually hang out with a guy from
Thailand named Rashapoon - there's a lot of other Thai
people here as well.
Most of the other foreign students here are Chinese,
but there are a few from other countries as well - Harry
(he goes by the name Aroodo, I think because it is easier
to pronounce) is from Brazil. There are people from
Malaysia, Mexico, the Phillipincs, Taiwan and even
Communication was kinda' tough when I first got here
but I think I'm starting to get the hang of it. Most of the
Chinese people usually have excellent Japanese, but a lot
of the people here don't. A lot of the people actually pre-
fer to speak English, even though that isn't their native
language. Even the programs often get shown in English
as well - there's one channel that seems to specialize in
English-language movies - subtitled in
Japanese, of course. The news broadcasts
on the HDTVBSX channels usually have
dual audio tracks, too. Sometimes the
channels here just rip stuff directly off
American television. I was watching the
Bulls-Pacers game this morning and it
even had some of the NBC commercials in it I'm pretty
lucky English is my primary language in that respect
I suppose I have always been a litde different from everyone else. I
mean, isn't being different what makes us individuals? In America, tt
doesn't really matter, but in a country where individualism isn't exactly
encouraged in school, someone like me sticks out like a good meal at
It's pretty much expected for foreigners to be different here in Japan
though. In America, people come from all over the place, so it's expected
that everyone will act different In Japan, though, most of the people (I'd
probably have to say at least 90) are Japanese. So when you're not
Japanese, people have this tendency of staring.
Not that I'm a stranger to staring, I get that a lot back in the States, too.
I actually think it's kind of amusing that people here spend a good deal of
time staring at me, as if they just don't realize that I'm staring right back
at them. People dress a lot differently here, you sec. Even with ninety-
degree weather almost every day, I've only seen one person wearing
shorts in the two months since I came here.
Of course, I'm not going to start wearing
slacks just because the whole country is -
I'm American, you see.
When it all comes down to it, people
immediately spot me out in the crowd as an
American. As such, they expect me to act
differently, so if I do something stupid, it just confirms what they were
thinking all along. If I do the right thing, though, it usually scares people,
so I make a point to learn the correct way to do things just for that purpose.
Which isn't to say that I like making trouble -1 don't A lot of other
Americans (no, I'm not the only one) have also recognized that people
expect Americans to act stupid and do the best to live up to that expecta-
tion. Then again, I think some Americans would do that even if they
weren't in Japan.
On the plus side, though, I'm actually kinda' glad that I'm American
instead of another country's citizen. A lot of the signs here are printed in
English as well as Japanese, which makes it a little bit easier than if my
native language were, say, Spanish or Swahili. Aside from that, I can go to
just about any video store and find about as many movies from America as
I can movies from Japan, most of them conveniently in English with
And in probably the weirdest twist of fate - although the Japanese, on
the whole, appear not to like Americans, a lot of them sure wouldn't mind
dressing in American clothes and listening to American music. I don't
think I'll ever be able to listen to Green Day again without having flash-
backs of Japanese punk-wannabees jumping about to music
In the meantime, though, I'm making a point to write about as much
of the Japanese cultural differences as possible, like how the Japanese
word mansion usually means "an apartment about the size of a dorm
room To say that things arc a little different here would be a gross under-

It's still legal to sleep in
two downtown parks
during the day
RALEIGH (AP) It's still legal to
sleep in two downtown parks dur-
ing the day.
The City Council narrowly
defeated on Tuesday a proposal to
ban camping or sleeping in two
downtown parks at all hours.
City Manager Dempsey
Benton had proposed extending a
nighttime sleeping ban in Moore
Square and Nash Square parks to
24 hours a day.
Benton said homeless men,
whose numbers are rising sharply,
virtually take over the parks,
intimidating other park users and
interfering with maintenance.
The council's four
Republicans, including Mayor
Tom Fetzer, supported the plan.
But the council's four
Democrats opposed it because
they said it didn't address the
overall issue of homelessness.

According to Gene
Owens, common mistakes
made by first and second
year college students are
assuming college will be
like high school, failure to
develop a balance
between academic and
social activities, losing aca-
demic motivation, practic-
ing poor test-taking skills
and failure to attend class-
es regularly. All problems
which lead to an unsuc-
cessful college career and
lurk in the shadows when
applying for jobs.

tice self-discipline and that
takes a level of maturity

time goes by, and cultures change,
but humans still have the same
experience. It's the same life, and
death, and love the same daily
search for food. We may find better
ways of cheating these things, but
the experience is still there. I
doubt things will really change.
The countries or the politics may,
but people will always fight.
Technology changes, people
Phelps added that one of his
favorite shows was Babylon 5,
which depicts humans in the far
future still trying to work out their
differences, both between them-
selves and other races.
However, the advances in tech-
nology have been helpful in the
practice of archeology. In the
1800s, related Phelps, archeology
was really able to take off. Then in
the 1960s technology gave
research and discovery a real boost.
Radar, computerized cataloging of
artifacts and radio-carbon dating
have all been implemenjted in the
search for how we used to live long
Phelps has been working long
enough to see quite a few of these
changes. He had an early interest
in the field, he said, when he was
about eight years old and had an
uncle who was an archeologist.
"He had a farm nearby, and he
used to take me out there and put
me to work picking up pieces of
pottery and things
Later Phelps served in the U.S.
Air Force and then pursued an
education in architecture, but was
soon to become interested in
archeology once again.
"I became sort of disenchanted
with architecture, and found that
archeology had a sort of aura of
mystery and investigation that I
liked more than planning water
pipes and weight loads of beams in
In forty years of archeology,
Phelps said, he has never been dis-
appointed. He has achieved his
goals and worked with some excel-
lent people and places. Most of his
work has been in Florida, Georgia
and North Carolina, with a few
other places here and there. He
loves his work, and the meaning
and importance behind it. And
although we've seen the movies
about Indiana Jones and Nazis and
magic artifacts, I know that the real
knowledge will be slowly found by
people like the tall, quiet Dr.

The nightmare of
WASHINGTON (AP) The
nightmare of mental illness began
subtly for the Mosers, when their
studious son dropped out of college
and his personality changed. By age
30, he wrote 40-page letters
describing men "beamed down
from the night sky He threw a
hammer at his father and carried a
The assault helped the Rev. R.
Leroy Moser and his wife persuade
a Massachusetts judge to send their
son to a psychiatric hospital, but
state law still let him refuse med-
ication. Once calm, he was released
and a few years later attacked his
parents with jagged glass. After five
years in jail, still unmedicated, he
disappeared, then landed in jail
The Northampton parents' saga
sounds eerily familiar. Russell
Weston Jr the schizophrenic
accused of shooting to death two
police officers in the nation's
Capitol, had his own story of years
without treatment and a family
unable to get him help.
"What they experienced is the
nightmare many of us have lived

trembling. "The story of Russell
Weston, of our David, of many oth-
ers I'm afraid, are at least the norm
for the mentally ill in our country
Now, advocates hope the
Capitol shootings could lead to help
for the nation's thousands of
untreated patients. Democrats and
Republicans in Congress have
asked the National Alliance for the

improving mental-health care, and
a bill is expected when Congress
returns in September.

CHICAGO (AP) An estimated 5
million Americans have a serious
mental illness. Among the worst is
schizophrenia, which afflicts 2.5
The disease causes hallucina-
tions and delusions, and patients
are unable to separate reality from
the warped images in their minds.
Paranoid schizophrenics, who have
a more severe form of the disease,
are obsessed with particular delu-
sions, especially the belief that
someone is controlling or endan-
gering them. Other symptoms
include incoherent speech, an
inability to feel pleasure and with-
Many schizophrenics are reclu-

Schizophrenia is a brain disease
that often strikes between adoles-
cence and age 30. Sophisticated
medical scans show schizophrenics'
brains contain abnormalities, both

fire, that make them function dif-
ferently from healthy people's
Treatment has significantly
improved in the last five years.
Older medicines like Haldol could
control some symptoms and were
available in long-acting injections
that could work for several weeks.
But they didn't help all symptoms
and could cause severe side effects,
including Parkinson's-like prob-
lems with movement
They have given way to newer
drugs with significantly fewer side
effects, such as Zyprexa and

Study shows drug-free, mentally
ill patients non-violent citizens
CHICAGO (AP) A new study has
found that mentally ill people who
are drug-free are no more violent
than their neighbors.
The finding backs up what
mentally ill people and their fami-
lies have known for years, says
Andrea Cooke, executive director
of the a Chicago-based Mental
Health Consumer Education
Consortium. But surveys show that
it's not what comes to mind when
many Americans think of psychi-
atric patients. Cooke knows. She's

The study, published in the
May issue of the Archives of
General Psychiatry, followed 951
acute psychiatric patients in the
year after their discharge in 1994
from hospitals in Pittsburgh,
Kansas City and Worcester, Mass.
Researchers compared the find-
ings with a sample of 519 non-
patients who lived in the same
neighborhoods as the patients dis-
charged in Pittsburgh.
They found that discharged
mental patients with substance
abuse problems are five times as
likely to commit acts of violence as
people without drug problems,

Advocates for the mentally ill
say that care never materialized:
More than half of schizophrenics
receive inadequate therapy, scien-
tists reported this spring. Fewer
than 30 percent get appropriate
medication, and no more than 10
percent live in areas like Wisconsin
where comprehensive care known
to reduce relapse is provided.
Up to half the nation's homeless
may suffer mental illness, includ-
ing schizophrenia and manic
depression. Advocates estimate
159,000 mentally ill people are
jailed merely to await psychiatric
hospital openings, not for breaking
laws. There are fewer than 70,000
publicly funded psychiatric beds,
abuse problems had three times the
violence rate of the general popula-
But the violence rate was about
the same for patients and non-
patients who were drug-free.
John Monahan, one of the
study's co-authors, says he hopes
the findings will help undo some of
the misconceptions he believes
have driven public policy.
He points to moves in the late
1960s to allow involuntary admis-
sion to psychiatric facilities for
patients commonly deemed "dan-
gerous to self or others
"I think the public's fears arc
greatly exaggerated said
Monahan, a psychologist at the
University of Virginia School of
The study did find that alcohol
and other drugs did make everyone
studied dangerous to others, partic-
ularly family members. Because of
that, Monahan and his colleagues
also arc calling for better integra-
tion between providers of mental
health services and substance
"Often times, the discharged
patients don't get from one to the
other Monahan says. "They fall
between the cracks
Ken Steelc, a schizophrenic
from New York, agrees.
"For the vast majority this
down from 500,000 in the 1960s.
Two-thirds of hospitals expel
mental patients whose insurance
runs out during treatment, a health
journal reported last year.
Overlying such figures:
Americans do have a constitutional
right to be, well, crazy. Patients can
be forced into hospitals or to take
medication only if a judge deems
them dangerous to themselves or to
others. A few states allow forced
treatment for the "gravely dis-
often refuse medical care. The dis-
ease affects a brain region responsi-
ble for judgment, so they truly
don't know they're sick, Dr. Karen
Weihs of George Washington
Yet most mental care comes
from community clinics that don't
treat patients unless they show up
Indeed, Wcston, the Capitol
shooting suspect, was discharged
from a Montana hospital, moved to
his parents' Illinois home and soon
stopped taking his medicine. The
local mental health clinic won't dis-
stigma of violence and other persis-
tent and inaccurate myths keep us
in the closet says Steelc, who now
fights for rights for the mentally ill.
He says that even when he was
abusing alcohol, he didn't hurt any-
"The only thing I've ever been a
danger to is myself says the 49-
year-old, who spent 32 years in
state hospitals in New York some of
that time on suicide watch.
Now on medication that has
made him "delusion-free and
voice-free" for three years, Steele is
well enough to help plan public
events for the mentally ill, includ-
ing a picnic this Sunday in New
York for 5,000 people.
The event is meant, in part, to
counter the common image of
mentally ill street people.
"The most visible aspects of
serious mental illness are those sit-
uations where something has gone
wrong says Robert Bernstein,
executive director of the Bazclon
Center for Mental Health Law in
Washington. "But for the most part,
mentally ill people live successfully
and they're good neighbors and you
don't hear about violence. You
don't hear about it because you
don't necessarily know they have

Washington Post it can do no more
than urge patients by telephone
and mail to come in.
What works? Madison, Wis
pioneered a program that helps the
mentally ill function in communi-
ties with lower relapse and hospi-
talization rates, studies show. A
"treatment team" is on 24-hour
call. They watch patients swallow
medicine, intervene with landlords
who want patients evicted for
bizarre behavior and even teach
relatives how to interact calmly
with patients to prevent stress that
can cause a relapse. Such services
are offered statewide only
in Wisconsin, Rhode Island, New
Hampshire and Michigan and
in scattered cities in 25 other

Misunderstood melon: cantaloupe consumption at a,ll-time high
LOS BANOS, Calif. (AP)
George Meek squats and parts the
broad green leaves shielding ripe
cantaloupes from the broiling San
Joaquin Valley sun. He plucks a
solid cantaloupe from the vine and
slices it open with a pocketknife.
The orange flesh glows like a neon
sign and gives off an unmistakable
Chewing on the juicy, sweet
melon, it is easy to see why
Americans are eating more can-
taloupes than ever a record 11.7
pounds per capita in 1997, accord-
ing to the U.S. Department of
Agriculture. That's a 27 percent
jump from 1990 levels, and it's
expected to keep increasing.
"We never used to sell this vol-
ume of melons said Don Sorani, a
produce buyer for the Berkeley,
Califbased Andronico's Market
chain who has been in the business
for about 40 years. "It has a lot to do
with diets. People are just eating
Cantaloupe is gaining on
America's favorite melon, water-
melon. Per capita consumption of
watermelons has risen 21 percent
since 1990 to 16.1 pounds. Honey
dew rounds out the melon catego-
ry at 2.6 pounds, a 24 percent
The melon boom comes at a
time when health-conscious shop-
pers are demanding more fresh
fruits and vegetables.
Supermarkets eager to distinguish
themselves from discount ware-
house stores have responded by
beefing up the produce section.
Where stores a decade ago stocked
some 100 produce items, they now
routinely offer more than 3Q0.
Annual sales of produce in super-
markets grew to $34.9 billion in
19 from $25.1 billion in 1986,
according to Supermarket Business
Shoppers looking for healthy
foods turn to cantaloupe for its high
levels of vitamin C and beta-
carotene. The melon may even
help prevent cancer, said Elyse

The cantaloupe also boasts a
thick and scaly, or "netted rind
that may appeal to consumers wor-

"Melons are particularly safe to
eat because they are sealed, so con-
taminants can't move through the
plant, or at least they haven't been
shown to said Mary Peet, a
horticulture professor at North
Carolina State University.
"Generally if you have a melon
that's unbroken or unblemished,

Cantaloupes are healthy, and
they also taste better than ever.
Farmers have recently bred mel-
ons that are 10 percent to 15 per-
cent sweeter than before, said
Gary Lucier, an economist with
Back at the Los Banos melon
farm, about 100 miles south of
San Francisco, Meek squeezes
cantaloupe juice into a short,
cylindrical device called a refrac -
tometer. The manager with
Lindemann Produce holds the
tube to his eye like a telescope to
examine the juice's sugar content.
The federal standard for top grade
melons is 9 percent sugar, but
Meek said growers typically can
produce melons that are at least 11
to 12 percent sugar. Even IS per-
cent is not unheard of.
Foreign melons are another big
reason why consumption is up.
Imports�and the resulting year-
round availability�account for
almost half of the increase since
1994, Lucier said.
During the winter and spring
months, Meek's company imports
cantaloupes from Mexico and every
Central American country except
for Belize. Shoppers who consis-
tently find cantaloupes in the
supermarket get used to buying
and eating them. .
Cantaloupe production in
California has also been on the rise
in the last few years. The state pro-
duces 60 percent of all U.S. can-
taloupes. The 19 crop was worth
$232.3 million, and ranked 23rd
among California's commodities.
"It's not that hard to grow can-
taloupes Meek said. "Just plant
the seeds and add water
Fanners actually water the crop
only three times during the 90-day
growing period. Melons require a
hot and dry climate. After
California, the top four melon-pro-
ducing states are Texas, Georgia,
Florida and Arizona.
This year, wet El Nino weather
delayed planting by a few weeks.
But the cantaloupe crop should still
be healthy because melons were
planted in other fields originally
intended for cotton, said Mike
Tanner, the Merced County agri-
Though cantaloupes have
recently grown in popularity here,
the melons have actually been
around for centuries.
Egyptian writings from 2400
B.C. are among the first known ref-
cantaloupes. The contemporary
name comes from a papal residence
in Italy called Cantaloupe ("wolf
howl"), where the melons were
grown in the 16th century.

Christopher Columbus brought'
melon seeds to the Americas.
In modern times, the cantaloupe
remains a misunderstood melon.
What most Americans think of as a
fruity cantaloupe is actually a
muskmelon. The real cantaloupe,
which is grown in Europe, has a
rind that looks like a peeled orange,
with a series of vertical indenta-
tions running from tip to tip.
Melons are also vegetables, not
fruits. The cantaloupe is a member
of the cucumis, or gourd, family.
Close relatives include the cucum-
ber and the squash.
"If you break open a green can-
taloupe, you'll taste the cucum-
ber Meek said.
With the surge in demand for
cantaloupes, watermelon and
honey dew, Americans are expect-
ed to eat a total of 31.9 pounds of
melons per capita this year.

long way to go to catch up with the
world-champion melon eaters.

Former Pirate Jeff Blake prepares to throw a pass during his days playing for ECU. Now the quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals, Blake remembers ECU fondly.
Cincinnati's star quarter back pirate at heart
Blake left 32 Priate records in his wake
Tracy M. Lah bach
When Jeff Blake graduated from ECU in 1991
with a degree in construction manage-
ment, he took his athletic talent with
him and headed to the pros. However,
with personal college accomplishments
ranging from setting 32 Pirate records to
being named 1991 ECAC Player of the
Year as a senior, Blake left a mark in the
history of ECU football that is still
talked about today.
After giving ECU four strong years
as the quarterback, Blake was drafted
in 1992 by the New York Jets in the
sixth round (166th overall) where he
completed four of nine passes in three
games as a rookie. Not seeing much action with
the Jets, Blake was stolen by the Cincinnati
Bengals in 1994.
As the Bengals new starting quarterback, Blake
produced the team's first victory of the season at
Seattle on Nov. 6, and was then named AFC
Offensive Player of the Week and AFC Offensive
Player of the Month for his effort.
Success continued in 1995 as Blake was award-
ed a passer rating of 82.1, the Bengals highest
since Boomer Esiason's 92.1 rating in 1989. He
went on to lead the AFC in touchdown passes
with 28, two better than second-place John Elway,
and was selected to the AFC Pro Bowl Squad as
the No. 2 quarterback vote-getter behind Dan
Marino. When Marino withdrew due to injury,
Blake stepped up as a starter and came through to
set a new Pro Bowl record with a 93-yard touch-
down pass, connected to Pittsburgh's Yancey
In 19, Blake became the first quarterback in
Bengals history to rush for 300 yards in consecu-
tive seasons, posting 309 in 1995 and 317 in 19.
He started every game and played 97.3 percent of
total offensive snaps (1059 of 1088).
Although Blake's ratio between touchdown
passes and interceptions is the best in the history
of Cincinnati football, he lost his position as a
starter for the last five weeks of 1997 as Boomer
Esiason stepped in. Bengals head coach Ken
Anderson expects that Blake will return to play at
the same level he showed in 1995 and 19.
"Jeff is a durable player who will be out there
for you every play, and he is also a mature per-
former who has proven that he won't make a big
mistake with poor judgment that could lead to an
interception Anderson said. "He struggled at
times last year but he didn't have the benefit of
the much-improved running game we developed
after Boomer took over as the starter, so Jeff
shouldn't have to carry us like he did at times
early in the season
Born in Daytona Florida, Blake came to
Greenville in 1988 to begin his college career with
the Pirates. Although he saw success in all four
seasons at ECU, his most prestigious accomplish-
ments were during 1991, his senior season.
Ranking in the top ten in total offense and
passing efficiency in NCAA statistics all season
long, Blake was named ECAC Division I-A Player
of the Week five times for his performances
against Central Florida, South Carolina,
Syracuse, Pittsburgh and Southern
Mississippi. Following the Syracuse
game, he was The Sporting News
National Offensive Player of the Week,
and his jersey was sent to Kings Island,
Ohio to be used in a display titled
"This Week in College Football
Blake spends the off-season in
Orlando, Florida, with his wife
Lewanna and three children, Emory,
Torre and Trey. As with most profession-
al athletes, staying healthy and injury
free ranks high on his list of priorities.
"Some people know how to fall when they are
hit. Some people don't Blake said. "If you know
how to fall to protect yourself when you are hit,
you won't get hurt. You just learn over the years

Football team prepares for season opener
Pirates set to kickoff 1998
The summer of 1998 was a productive one
for the ECU football team, as it prepares
for its season opener against Virginia Tech.
That was the indication that Head
Coach Steve Logan gave at the annual pre-
season football media day held on August
"Academically we had a very good sum-
mer, we got ourselves in place to compete
for another year Logan said. "We had a
great summer conditioning wise
Most players spent the summer in
Greenville working with strength and con-
ditioning coach Jeff Connors. As a result,
Logan said that nearly every player is top
shape heading into three-a-days.
"We have what we call a combo drill
where we break the kids down into three
groups, skill positions and safety, tightends
and linebackers, with linemen being the
third group Logan said. They run 16
110 yard dashes. Out of 105 players, all but
12 made their times, only four of those 12
were scholarship athletes
Logan said that is one of the highest
rates that the team has had and is a
tremendous start to the season. Having the
players in good shape to start the year will
allow the team to pick up where it left off
in the spring.
"Usually in the spring we go for 15
straight days, but this year we went one
day on, one day off, and spread it over the
entire 29 day period that the NCAA
allows Logan said. "It was physical and it
was fundamental. We blocked and tackled,
blocked and tackled, blocked and tack-
Logan expects the Virginia Tech game
to be a very physical one.
"When practice starts it's going to be
the same thing, it's going to be very, very
physical, right up
until we get ready to
play Virginia Tech
Logan said. "When
we play Tech it is
going to be a very
game and we are
going to make sure
that our half of the
physicalness is held
Logan said that
the changes were
made to give the
team more of an
edge. He said that
last year the team
became "flat but
that this year's team
really embraced the
physical style of prac-
were excited about
it Logan said. "I
think they've got a
good feel for it"
One of the ques-
tion marks heading
into the season is the
development of the
offensive line and
the running game.
Of the offensive line,
Logan said that it
should be a strength.
"Last year we
played around 12 guys looking for the right
combination Logan said. "So we've got a
lot of guys with experience, and we had a
coaching change at that position that I
think will help us. I saw some immediate
results during the spring
In addition to new offensive line coach
Steve Shankweiler, former defensive line-
man Dwaync Ledford moves over to the
offensive side of the ball where he will man
the left tackle position. Ledford put on
about 10 pounds this summer while still
running around a 4.8 40-yard dash. His
Jeff Kerr hat been tabbed a preseason first-team All-Conference USA selection.
move became possible after the emer-
gence of Brian Johnson last year on the
defensive line. The move was made to
give both players more playing time.
"You're always trying to get your 22 best
athletes on the field Logan said. "Brian
allows us to do that
With improvements being made to the
offensive line, the running game is expect-
ed to benefit greatly. Last year ECU aver-
aged a disappointing 67.5 yards a game
rushing. Sophomore Jamie Wilson backed
up Scbtt Harley last year. This year he will
be counted on to improve the Pirate
"Jamie Wilson is an all-around kind
of player that we will try to utilize in a
variety of ways Logan said. "He runs
routes well and has very good hands
Wilson will be lined up in the "mid-
line" position directly behind the quar-
terback, as well as offset back so that he
can come out of the backfield as a
receiver. Wilson said that he is ready to
take a bigger part in the offense.
"Last year it was kind of hard, I don't
like coming off the bench Wilson said.
"I feel more comfortable with the
offense this year. I think that with the
improvements in the offensive line it
will make my job a lot easier
"We're trying to get back to what we
enjoyed a few years ago when we had
Junior Smith and Jerris McPhail in the
backfield at the same time Logan said.
"We want to line up two backs in the
backfield a lot more than
we have the past two sea-
sons. Leonard Henry
looks like he will be able
to perform very well as
the mid-line back
On defense, there are
high expectations, espe-
cially from the front
"Our defensive unit
has got to step out on the
field and perform
Logan said. "I don't think
anyone was comfortable
with the way they per-
formed last year
"They have proven that
they can perform in the
past Logan said. "Most of
those attitude adjustments
took place all winter long
and all summer long
Junior linebacker Jeff
Kerr feels that last year was
a disappointment, and that
this year's defense will be
"We had too much talent, strength and
speed on that team not to win more than
five games last season Kerr said. "This
year we've got better chemistry as a team
Kerr added that this year's defense is
much more experienced than it was a year
"Last year we had zero experience
going into the games Kerr said. "I had no
experience at all. Going into this year
we've gotten a little bit better because
we've been able to work with each other
While the front seven is expected to be
a strength, there are concerns about the
secondary. While there is plenty of talent,
depth might be a problem.
"Forrest Foster, Kevin Monroe, Kelvin
Suggs along with Tavares Taylor have
played a lot of football for us Logan said.
"Beyond those four it gets interesting, to

Women's soccer is ready for the '98 sea-

productive season. Nearly the entire team has

the new logos have become an image chat

"The new Pirate represents our school
with a more modernistic appeal which
leads to a better, bolder image. I think

they realize that it is a new generation, and it
was time for ECU to make a statement

Sue Brown, merchandising manager of

prefer Pee Dee. The students that have
grown up with Pee Dee have had a hard
time with the change, but by carrying mer-
chandise featuring both Pee Dee and the
newer Pirate, we are pleasing just about
Lee Workman, director of athletic pro-
motions and special events, said that at this
point it is too early to say exactly how
much sales in ECU apparel have increased

percent of the ECU population participating
in recreational activities since the opening of
the Rec. Center in January 1997, the main goal
of the department is to promote recreational
health for the entire campus.
With facilities ranging from a 10,000 square
foot weight-training room, exercise studios, an
indoor track, a climbing wall, indoor and out-
door pools, basketball, racquetball and volley-

QB position to be shared by three
Tinnin, Weaver and Garrand to
replace Dan Gonzalez
For the first time since 1992, the ECU football
team will head into the season without a clear cut
number one quarterback.
Last year's starter Dan Gonzalez graduated and
was signed by the Dallas Cowboys, leaving three
players to compete for the number one job. Fifth
year senior Ernest Tinnin, sophomore Bobby
Weaver and red-shirt David Garrard are all battling
for the top spot.
Head Coach Steve Logan says that he probably
won't decide on one starter and will play all three
QB's during the year.
"I gave all three QB's equal repetitions in the
spring Logan said. "We've got three guys that can
do the job
While all three will play at some time this sea-
son, chances are they won't all play in the same
"We won't play three in a game, but we will
probably play two in every game this season
When asked how he plans to rotate his QB's dur-
ing games, Logan said that there isn't any set sys-
tem and he won't switch guys strictly on a series by
series or on a quarterly basis.
"We'll go by feel Logan said. "It depends on
how our team is playing
One of the biggest concerns about this group of
quarterbacks is their lack of experience. Tinnin has
been in the program since 1994, but has seen limit-
ed playing time and has attempted only two passes
in his career. Last year he played mainly on special
teams, serving as the short man on the punt team.
During the final spring practice, Tinnin completed
five of 11 passes for 60 yards.
Garrard was regarded by many prep observers as
the top-rated quarterback in North Carolina when
he signed with ECU in 19. With his size (6-3,
240), speed and arm strength, Garrard is expected
to make an impact at some point this season.
Garrard looked sharp in the final spring practice,
completing six of 10 passes for 164 yards. He also
rushed for 56 yards on eight carries. Garrard also
showed his ability to avoid the pass rush and find
receivers down field.
Weaver saw action in three games last year and
completed four out of eight passes for five yards
with one interception. While Weaver is somewhat
small when compared to Tinnin or Garrard, (he is
listed at 6-0,190), he makes up for lack of size with
blazing speed. Weaver is one the fastest players on
the team. Because of his speed, many have won-
dered if Weaver will be moved to another position,
such as safety or wide receiver.
"He could, but we
won't be going any-

certainly has the ability to

The ECU men's soccer team is
anxious to begin the 1998 season,

recruits to their roster.
Among the five freshmen
recruits, three are from North
Carolina while Virginia and Florida
each send one.
Out of Garner, N.C. comes
Brad Jernigan, who led the Athens
Drive team to regular season
championships twice over the
course of four seasons.
Daniel Smith of McLeansville
was an all-district selection last year.
During his three years playing for
North Guilford, he tallied 51 goals
and 31 assists.
Demar Martin comes to ECU
Sean Hawley dribbles past an opponent.
from Greensboro after being chosen
as an all regional selection for his
play with Southeast Guilford. He
helped lead his team to the confer-
ence championships in 19 and
Matt DeStefano, a goal-
keeper from North Palm
Beach, Florida, is expected to
contribute this season as well.
"Matt will help solidify
our team at the critical goal-
keeper position Head
Coach Will Wiberg said.
DeStephano was a first
team all-area selection last
season at the Benjamin
School. He also played as a
starting goalkeeper in his area

Rounding off this season's
new recruits is Chris Brugh

lead his team in scoring the
past two years and was a
three-time all conference
"Chris is an excellent tar-
get player and proven finish-

The rest of the team has been
focusing on keeping in shape and in
rhythm over their summer vacation.

together for at least two years, so
that's a big advantage for us
Because Wiberg has not seen
most of his athletes since May, the
majority of their summer training
was left up to the individual ath-
Preseason started for the team
on August 12, at which time the
team fulfilled their short term goals.
"We are looking to keep our
players healthy and get in a real
rhythm, and just get comfortable
with playing with each other again
The team will face it's first chal-
lenge of the year at Elon College on
September 2. Last season the
Pirates beat Elon in the final
minute of play. It is a match that
both teams consider significant.
Head Coach Wiberg and
Assistant Coach Jeff Oberg are
hopeful for what the season may
bring. For anyone interested in
joining the team, open walk-on try-

Managers at Dowdy-Ficklen Student Stores
look forward to learning more about how to use
the new logos creatively by using different

They hope to give both incoming and returning

Student Stores and U.B.E have consistently
depended on the success of the university's ath-
letic teams according to Jake Jacobs, associate
director of Dowdy-Ficklen Student Stores.
"We definitely see a dramatic increase in
sales when our teams have winning seasons
Jacobs said. "When the Pirates win, people are
likely to buy more, especially during football
and basketball seasons. Our football team will
come onto the field this season with a new look
from head to toe, and we will be carrying that
merchandise in our store as well
However, regardless of athletic success,
Jacobs feels that Pirates fans are as loyal as they
come. This is something that is quite clear sim-
ply by looking up into the stands at any of the
home football games. No matter where you
look, you see the same two colors.
"ECU people are very devoted to purple and

Clubs and organizations are an essential part of campus
life. They are a good way to meet new people and
develop a sense of identity in an unfamiliar place.
Recreational services provides a sports related organi-

Club sports arc student oriented organizations that
are sponsored by Recreational Services, and involve
practices, competitions and recruiting new players.
The various clubs compete against clubs from other
universities in intercollegiate non-varsity leagues. This
semester, 15 clubs will be offered, including: disc golf,
kayaking, men's lacrosse, men's rugby, swimming,
men's and women's ultimate frisbee, underwater hock-

The new facilities will help the

increase flexibility in scheduling practices and games.
Patrick Daniel, coordinator of Intramural Services,
said having a variety ofactivities to choose from is very
important to the success of the program.
"We provide competition in the form of teams as
well as individual sports Daniel said. "Last year a
total of 39 different activities were offered and we are
constantly looking to add new activities to provide
more of a variety. With, more
diversity to choose from, it

Intramural Sports is divided

When the Student Recreation Center
opened it's doors in the spring of 1997, it
-also opened up many opportunities for the
ARISE Program. ARISE, standing for
�Adapted Recreation and Intramural Sport
Enrichment program, provides recreation-
al and athletic opportunities for (but not
limited to) ECU students, faculty and staff
The ARISE program at ECU is
designed to create an awareness of recre-
ational opportunities for individuals with
physical disabilities. It also aims to provide
training in physical fitness, muscular
strength, cardiovascular endurance and
ARISE has been able to offer more
interactive programs since the opening of
the Student Recreation Center.

Christenbury was not accessi-
ble for the programs that are
offered now, and while ARISE
was established on campus
many years ago, a calendar of
programs was difficult to estab-
lish because there was no place
to hold them.
With programs ranging from
Wheelchair Basketball League
to the WheelPower Dance
Troupe, ECU earned the
"Adapted Physical Activity
Council's 1998 Program of the
Year Award" in March, an
honor that program director
Terry Edwards feels will
encourage many disable stu-
dents to come to ECU.
"ECU is one of few univer-
sities in the country to offer
this program, and the only
school in the state of North
Carolina to offer it Edwards
said. "This award has earned
us national recognition, and I
think that individuals with dis-
abilities will look at ECU more
seriously because of it
Although the ARISE program is
designed to encourage disabled students to
be involved in recreational activities on
campus, participation is not limited to dis-
abled students. Able students,
faculty and staff are encouraged
to participate in the programs as
"A lot of people that are not
disabled still come out and take
part in our programs Edwards
said. "Anyone who wants to learn
about and play adaptive sports
On August 26, ARISE will
hold it's annual Open House at
the Student Rec. Center from 7
to 9 p.m. This will provide a
chance for students to learn about how to
use adaptive equipment and learn more
about what ARISE has to offer.
"We will have different people sta-
tioned around the gym to show those with
disabilities how to use the adaptive equip-
ment, including the lifts, ramps, and hand-
cranked machines Edwards said. "People
will be able to check out a wheelchair and
join in for a wheelchair basketball game
On August 28, ARISE will meet again
at the Student Rec. Center for an activity
night, which will feature more organized
activities including the climbing wall, rac-
quctball, wheelchair softball and more.
ARISE also provides
practicum experience for ECU
students studying adapted
physical education, recreation
and leisure studies, and thera-
peutic recreation. Students
pursing careers in these areas
have been known to take part
in many of the ARISE pro-
grams as part of their learning
This semester, ARISE will
be participating in numerous
activities and community
events. In September there will be a Fall
Fiesta which will include an Adaptive
Waterski Clinic, and in October an
Adaptive Sports Day will be held that will
feature workshops on weight lifting,
wheelchair basketball and refining athletic
skills. Also planned for part of National

ECU's own lovable Pee Dee the
Pirate has undergone a bit of cos-
metic surgery this past summer to
prepare for what is expected to be a
great Pirate football season.
"This summer, Pee Dee has

gloves and boots Corbett said.
"He's going to look really spiffy for

mately two thousand dollars on

"It's expensive but you have to

what needs to get done Corbett

dents cool inside the costume

Professional Disc Golf Association
(PGDA), which sponsors many tourna-
ments around the world.
There are many reasons why disc golf
appeals to almost anyone, regardless of age,
gender or ability. Not only is it inexpensive
and easy to learn, it encourages mental and
physical conditioning and is fun and relax-
Graduate student Tim Weeks said that
there are many advantages to being
involved in the disc golf program at ECU.
"I started to play for the convenience
Weeks said. "It is a game that I could prac-
tice on my own and not have to keep score.
The game is fun and it's also a great way to
meet nice people
Lew Hoffman, an ECU alumni and
touring professional complimented the
ECU course as one that is fit for anyone,
regardless of skill level.
"Anyone can play regardless of skill
level. The ECU course in a beginner
friendly course but one that can also be
challenging to advanced players Hoffman
said. "This is not a game of brute strength.
It involves technique, hand-eye coordina-
tion and finesse
Disc golf is also a good way to get exer-
cise, especially for those students with par-
ticularly demanding schedules, such as
senior Karl Garcia. .
"I have a busy class schedule but it is
easy for me to come out and play a few
rounds Garcia said. "I started playing
because it was a great way to participate in
low impact exercise and I have tons of fun
at the same rime
The principles of disc golf are very sim-
ilar to ball golf but differ in equipment
The disk is similar to a frisbee but is some-
what smaller and heavier. Three different
types of disks are used, depending on the
distance you are looking to achieve: the dri-
ver, mid-range and the putter.
The game begins by throwing the disk
within the teeing area toward a metal bas-
ket Once the disk comes to rest it is
flipped forward repeatedly until it reaches
the basket. Obstacles including but not
limited to trees, bushes, stumps, curves and
bends await each basket

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.
(AP) �Purdue's football team
shocked the Big Ten and most of
college football in 1997. Now they
want to prove it was no fluke.
The Boilermakers were looking
for an encore performance today as
they took to the field for the earli-

Coach Joe Tiller, his staff and
the players have spent months in
off-season work in an effort to
demonstrate that last year's success
i was no fluke.
We've worked much harder this
year than in the past said Tiller,
who was hired from a successful
Wyoming program to revive a
. Purdue program that had become
I known for futility over the past
That included having the
coaching staff monitor academic
progress of the players to insure
that they are academically eligible
' for the upcoming season.
I don't think we're going to lose
anybody, Tiller said Sunday as
Purdue held its annual media day.
We think we came out of the sum-
mer with what we think is an all-
time high GPA (grade point aver-
age). We were much more diligent
as a staff.
The challenge now is to
demonstrate that 1997 was no one-
In Tiller's first season at the
helm of the program, the
Boilermakers overcame an open-
ing-game upset by Toledo to finish
9-3. Expected to be at the bottom
of the Big Ten standings at the
start of the season, Purdue finished
in a tie for second place and made
its first bowl appearance since
1984. A victory over Oklahoma
State in the Alamo Bowl capped
A lot of the right things have
occurred here in the past 12
months, and yet we may not be as
good, Tiller said. When I compare
this winter to last winter, our guys
are in better shape, they worked
harder. This summer we had 70
players here all summer long, last
year we were in the 40's and some
were coming and going.

bruised back on the seventh play.
Obviously, two turnovers in the
first two drives last week was not
good, so we wanted to redeem
ourselves, Favre said. We got it
together and ran the football well.
When we passed it we completed
it. And went for it on fourth down
