Chancellor Eakin Undergoes
Results of survey kept confidential by
Board of Trustees until fall semester
Debbie N e ti w i r t h
Chancellor Richard Eakin has recently found himself at
the mercy of ECU's Board of Trustees (BOT) and a new
evaluation process to determine his on strengths and weak-
nesses as the chancellor of ECU.
On Aug. 11 the Board of Governors (BOG) began an in
depth evaluation procedure involving Chancellor Richard
This new process was established by the BOG in March
of 1998 stating that every two years university chancellor's
must undergo an evaluation by the university' BOT.
This evaluation takes place in a four part series, and
every other year the evaluation becomes less and less in
The campus portion of the evaluation procedure has just
been completed and will continue until September. At that
time the BOG will hold a meeting to discuss any issues
about strengths and weaknesses that may arise during the
After issues have been discussed, UNC-System
President Molly Broad will meet with the Chancellor Eakin
for discussions and recommendations.
According to the BOT this years evaluation was taken
very seriously and will continue to be.
ECU is one of three universities currently evaluating
chancellors. The evaluation process includes the help and
input of trustees, alumni, faculty and students as well as a
consultant whose job is to interview Deans and Vice
Chancellors. This consultant is supplied to the BOT by Dr.
Roland Nelson of Greensboro.
Executive Assistant o the Chancellor, Jim Smith feels
that the new evaluation process will be helpful in discover-
ing strengths and areas of improvement.
"I think this is a good policy that the BOG has devel-

Chancellor Richard Eakin works at his desk.

Man sentenced for armed postal robbery
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) � A Mingo County man has been sen-
tenced to nearly three years in prison in the armed robbery of a post office.
Jeffrey Marcum, 22, of Dingess, had pleaded guilty to robbing the
Breeden Post Office at gun point last Oct. 6, U.S. Attorney Rebecca Betts
said Monday following sentencing.
Marcum and co-defendant Robert Baisden used stolen firearms in the
robbery and fled in a stolen vehicle, which they later set on fire, Betts said.
Baisden previously was sentenced to six years in prison.
Police fire shots at boy with water gun
NEW YORK (AP) � A 16-year-old boy was shot by police who mis-
took his black water pistol for a real weapon, with one of the officers fir-
ing all 16 rounds in his gun.
Michael Jones was in critical condition Monday. He was shot six times
early Sunday after encountering police while he rode his bicycle.
Police were looking for the boy after an off-duty police officer report-
ed he was pointing a gun at people and cars.
Police said the boy refused to drop his toy, which looked like a sub-
machine gun. But Jcrmain Congress, who was riding his bike with Jones,
said Jones was dropping his pistol when he was shot.
Officer David Gross fired all 16 rounds from his 9mm semi-automatic
pistol at Jones. Sgt. Michael Jacobellis fired once.
Police Commissioner Howard Safir said a preliminary investigation
indicates the officers acted properly.
Bomb defused in Indonesia's tallest building
JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) � Police defused a small bomb that was
discovered in Indonesia's tallest building, newspapers reported today.
The explosive was found by a security guard Friday near a bathroom
door on the ground floor of the 50-story Wisna BNI 46 tower in the capi-
tal, Jakarta. There were no claims of responsibility and police declined to
speculate on who may have planted it.
The bomb was in a 4-inch by 8-inch box and was equipped with a
timer, The Jakarta Post quoted Col. Jacky Uly, commander of the nation-
al police bomb squad, as saying. It was set to explode later Friday.
The building houses some operations of the central bank, which has
been at the center of efforts to revive the nation's paralyzed economy.
A social club for Americans and the offices of about 100 Indonesian and
foreign companies are also in the building.

WASHINGTON (AP) � The
United States should prepare for
retaliation from last week's mili-
tary strikes against suspected ter-
rorist sites in Afghanistan and
Sudan, Sen. Richard Shelby, R-
Ala said Monday.
Shelby, chairman of the Senate
Intelligence Committee, said he's
convinced that President Clinton
was justified in ordering the
strikes, but he said they likely will
encourage terrorist groups to strike
"I'm sure there will be a quid
pro quo, a tit for tat, a response
from these kind of people
Shelby said in an interview after
returning from a two-week trip to
India, Pakistan and Syria.
"Our response was measured, it
was calculated, but we obviously
know that that doesn't rid the
world of terrorism he said. "It
might even, in a sense, embolden
them a little bit. But I believe we
have to declare war on terrorists

Because he was out of the coun-

notice of the military strikes but
was briefed shortly after the
attacks. He said he had already left

The military strike in Sudan
targeted a plant believed to be
manufacturing chemical weapons.
While Sudanese officials have
denied U.S. claims that the factory
in Khartoum was producing such

clear the attack was justified.
"I'm satisfied of that he said.

in what they did and I think they
will have to do more

Casteen recommended that

Summer offers time to reflect

Well, lets see what did we learn
this summer? Money means
power. I promised myself that I
wouldn't put my two cents in on
this one, but it has come to this.
In ECLI's attempt to get more
money to get more football players
who can read AND write, ECU has
devoted 60 percent of the $7
million that will be eventually re-
extorted out of the students by
Pepsi to athletics. Around
campus, opinions are pretty critical
of this decision, ranging from
slightly less apathetic than usual to
sporadic cursing. It seems that the
only way we will be able to get coke
on campus is in it's purified white,
Freshman orientation was fun.
Don't deny it. Those little boys and
girls are so awestruck by us that
they would shack up with a hobo as
long as they had an ECU shirt on.
Besides, we really didn't have
anything else to do on a Wednesday
night like study. We went to the
Elbo to create an atmosphere of
diversity, in stark opposition to the
usual local rednecks, rugby players
and Marines who frequent the

Pepsi deal eliminates competition
These were the immortal words
that were uttered by John Belushi
in the old Saturday Night Live
sketch. What it meant was that you
could order anything in this SNL
restaurant that you liked as long as
it was either a cheeseburger, chips,
or Pepsi. Well the same thing has
happened here at ECU with the
exclusivity contract signed with
Businesses need competition as
part of the checks and balances in
our economysociety. Companies
must keep abreast of the demand
for competitor's products as well as
the fluctuations in current
consumer preferences in order to
stay competitive in the marketplace
(which proved a painful lesson to
U.S. automobile manufacturers in
the 70s and 80s). From a

The new soft drink exclusivity
contract (monopoly) gives us none
of these options. It restricts us to
those specific products which are
distributed by the vendor at
whatever price he wishes to charge.
I have already witnessed the
pricing increase at our vending
machine here in the library, and I'm
sure the prices will continue to
climb over the life of the contract.
Ultimately, the consumers
(primarily students, faculty and
staff) will be paying the price for
the University's cash windfall as
most business vendors tend to pass
expense increases down to the
A perfect example of where
competition in the marketplace
does work to the consumer's
benefit is in a recent situation that
happened to my wife. She received
an unsolicited offer from a long
distance telephone company which
could allow us to pay a per call
charge of $.10minute at all times
with no additional monthly charge
(which happened to be better than
our existing provider who
countered this by offering to drop
our monthly fee for the next 6
months, allow us unlimited
$.10minute calls, plus give us a
monthly credit of $25 toward our
phone bill. Needless to say, we
were both amazed at this and
realized that this could never

becoming deregulated. Obviously,
there are now more choices and
options for the consumer because
To sum up, I feel that society in
general is better off when we have
competition because it allows us to
make more choices and decisions.
Now that our soft drink freedom of
choice has been taken from us, I
can only owner what will be next.
Suing HMOs should not be illegal
Over the summer we made it clear that we thought the Board of Trustees deal with
Pepsi was a big score for the university. Unfortunately, it's a score that we feel will be
celebrated much more enthusiastically by the Athletic Department than anyone else.
Most students we have heard from are upset that they no longer have a choice. They
feel that their privacy has been invaded and a basic right of choice has been stripped.
While we concede' to sometimes feeling this way. We are more concerned with the
statement this decision makes as to the importance of academics on campus. We need
to improve our somewhat lacking academic reputation and it takes big bucks to do that.
What does this decision say to our friends doing research in labs late at night across
campus? What does this say to the professors who work in cramped conditions? What
does this say to dents the students sitting in hot classrooms? Giving less than half of the
money from the Pepsi deal to academics says to a lot of people that we are less of a
priority right now than athletics.
We feel that the Athletic Department did beautiful leg work and left a tough decision
to the Board of Trustees, but we are ultimately dissapointed with the allocation of
funding. Academics needs a friend. We need a rich benefactor or at least someone
willing to stand up and fight for us.
We will always be the first in line to yell, "Go Pirates but, as we said earlier this
summer, we may be yelling through clenched teeth as we sit sweltering in hot

dismay at the treatment they are
receiving is the only reason
anything is being done. It is an
election year and politicians have
to show interest in the people.
The majority in the House did not
want to add a provision that would
allow patients to sue. The right-
wing party is concerned with
frivolous lawsuits. Republicans
tend to think all lawsuits against
big corporations arc unnecded.
They are probably right; Ford did
nothing wrong when the Pinto
went into production, and the
cigarette companies did not
mislead the public at' all.
Newt and the Gang are correct
when they assume that some
people will take advantage of the
ability to sue. What the collective
intelligence of the Republican
party fails to consider is that the
HMO's will take advantage of
patients if they cannot sue.
The Republican's bill did have
provisions for patients to appeal.
Having the ability to appeal is
necessary to protect the public's
health and well-being. The
question I have is how long will the
appeals process take � six months,
a year, two years? During that time

to federal law the patient will have

made into law. Company's that

should be held to that promise.
An amendment I would like to
sec, but probably will not is prison
sentences. The federal
government should impose stiff
prison terms upon the people
within the HMO empire. Fines are
already in place but what is a
couple of hundred grand to a
billion dollar industry? People want
criminals behind bars and what is
more criminal than making a
person wait for treatment because
the company deemed it too
expensive? This is akin to torture.
We were all Freshman once

Does anyone remember their very
first day at ECU? There were
thousands of people that you
didn't know and who could care
less about knowing you.You were
crammed into a tiny space that you
were to share with a total stranger
for the next nine months of your
life and that person was already
exhibiting all the outward
symptoms of either a bordarline
psychotic or a TB patient. You
walked into the dining hall where
you were to receive life-sustaining
nourishment for the rest of the
year and were confronted with a
smell sent directly up from the
blackest pit of hell. It was the
specialty of the house- macaroni
casserole, served six times weekly.
You visited your department (if
you had one yet) to meet thirty
other frightened young students
like yourself and about three
hundred wise-cracking, bitter fifth
year sophomores who were to
guide you through your first year.
There were no signs telling you
where to go for your first class or
your second or your third. And if
you asked, a kind smile would
appear on the face of the
individual asked- as they gave you
the wrong directions.
Yes, my first day at ECU was a
living hell. I count myself
exceptionally lucky to be here at
all after that nightmarish
experience. My parents drove
away and left a well adjusted,
socially inclined 18-year-old to
metamorphosize into a groveling,
lost, scared freshman.
I have since recovered. But that
day lives on in my memory iike a
tattoo on the ass of Satan. I know
the pain that this year's freshman
are living. And you probably do
too. So when an obviously lost
freshman asks you for directions,
give them the right ones. Unless
they're cocky, in which case you
should feel free to tell them that
English 1100 is held on the Town
Commons on the first day, and that
they should hurry because the
teacher is giving out free shots of
vodka to the first 20 to arrive.
Here are a few small pointers for
you new guys that may make those
first few weeks a little easier. One:
Learn the Rules of the Sidewalk.
Stay right, don't clump into groups
of three or more (because that
really pisses everyone off, if you
haven't noticed already), look
straight ahead at all times. Two:
Don't wear your ("lass of '98 T-
shirt unless you want the pain.
Three: Trust no one- not even
your mother. She has no idea
what's going on. Four: Act like
you've been here for years, and if
you get lost, try not to look like it.
If you wander around for long
enough, you'll find it. Five- and
perhaps the most important of all:
Stay out of the Elbo. Don't
The law is pretty simple. If you
don't call attention to yourself, you
won't get picked on. If you choose
to ignore this rule, you are on your
own, and I pity you. And about the
dining hall? It doesn't get better.
It's all downhill from here, brothers
and sisters. Tip Six: Put Papa
John's number on your speed dial.

Binge drinking is defined as four or
more drinks for a female
Michael D. McElwain-
Women and men are not created equal after all.
Life along Fifth Street on a Friday night is much dif-
ferent for women then men.
According to several studies, women will experi-
ence a greater effect from alcohol than their male
counterpart according to Robert Morphet, a counselor
at ECU's Center for Counseling and Student
Development. The BAC (blood alcohol content)
becomes higher in women then in men.
Morphet says that if a male and a female of equal
size and weight drink the same amount of alcohol, the
BAC level in the female would be greater than the
"The blood alcohol levels are higher in women
then men, and it also varies during the female's men-
strual cycle Morphet said.
Morphet also added that women are more suscep-
tible to getting liver disease related jto chronic heavy
drinking than men.
Dr. Thomas de Beck, clinical director of the ECU
Student Heath Service, agrees with Morphet
"TBe same amount of alcohol will have more
impact on a female due to physiological reasons de
The reasons stem from enzymes in the female
body and the alcohol absorption rates.
Alcohol, in general, affects the cerebral function of
the brain, according to de Beck.
"When a person is staggering around drunk, the
cerebellum is impaired and can't coordinate motor
movement de Beck said.
de Beck also said that judgment is impaired due to
the effect on the area of the brain's called the cerebral
Morphet sees another concern for women where
alcohol is concerned.
"A female is more likely to be victimized more by
lifestyle choices than men Morphet said. "She can
be victimized by her husband, be raped or assaulted
Morphet said that one of the biggest risks for
women are that they are put at a greater risk for
assaults, sexual assaults and rape while intoxicated.
Another concern for women is that more and more
drinking can easily bring about academic trouble. Poor
grades and having to drop out of college could be the
While women tend to metabolize alcohol and
absorb it differently, a study shows that there is a big
difference in the amount that they do drink.
ECU participated in a national study in 1997 called
the CORE Survey. There were 603 responses from
ECU students to the survey and the results surprised
"Despite the reputation, we are just about smack-
dab in the middle of the national average Morphet
said. "Most universities have that reputation as a party
school, but I don't think it is a big difference from the
other schools of our size
It was that survey that showed the other important
difference between male and female drinking�the

If you're a male and have more than five drinks when

That is the major problem for male drinking at East
Carolina University according to Dr. Robert Morphet,
substance abuse counselor at ECU.
"The risk of alcohol poisoning through binge
drinking and playing drinking games is dangerous
Research supports the idea that binge drinking is
more predominant for men then women. A 1997
national study of college drinking, the CORE Survey,
showed the difference between the amount of alcohol
consumed when men and women drink.
The survey showed that for ECU male students
that do drink, 20 percent have one and two drinks, 28
percent have three to four drinks, 27 percent have five
or six drinks and 25 percent have seven or more
Citing those statistics, Morphet suggests that males
have a tendency to drink more, and that concerns him.
"We don't want to have any alcohol poisoning
deaths here at ECU Morphet said.
Dr. Thomas De Beck, clinical director of ECU's
Student Health Services, is also concerned about male
binge drinking and he voiced his opinion on the idea
"All it means (tolerance) is that he has drunk so
much for so long de Beck said. "All it means is. that
he is actually in trouble. He has worked long and hard
to get there
"If it takes more than two or three (drinks) to get a
buzz, then you are in trouble De Beck said. "You are
at a crossroads
Morphet said that there is a problem of drinking
within our campus community, but he also points out
that the results from the CORE survey show that
ECU is with the national average. The survey showed
that 66 percent of the female and 69 percent of the
male respondents reported consuming alcohol within
the last 30 days.
Not only do males run a greater risk of alcohol poi-
soning, but they are different from females on how
they conduct themselves while intoxicated.
"Men have a higher chance of getting involved in
anti-social behavior than women addicts Morphet
While nature and nurture play a role in any addic-
tion, Morphet thinks male drinking problems stem
more from the college environment than with this
issue of abuse that seems to be a factor in women
"It (male drinking) comes from less abuse and a lot
has to do with the environment and the friends they
are with Morphet said.
Morphet added that men have more social influ-
ences and the reasons for drinking are multifaceted.
The way one reacts from the amount you drink can

Safety precautions vital during hurricane season
Residents should never try
to wait out storm
With hurricane Bonnie on the rampage
and possibly headed toward the Eastern
North Carolina shoreline, and hurricane
Danielle not far behind, it is vitally impor-
tant to know how to keep safe. It is impor-
tant even in areas as far inland as
Greenville, which was proven true by the
destruction of hurricanes Fran and Bertha
just two years ago. Hurricanes can be a
matter of life or death.
It has been predicted that this year 10
tropical storms will develop in the Atlantic
Ocean of which 6 are expected to turn into
Hurricanes, hurricanes that have the
potential to take a life if the proper safety
measures are not adhered to.
According to the American Red Cross
an evacuation plan is very important.
People must identify where they will go,
keep telephone numbers of friends and
family handy as well as road maps in case
an alternative evacuation route must be
taken, leave food and water out for the pets
that must be left behind (most shelters and
hotels do not allow pets) and stay tuned to
your local television and radio stations.
"If you are in an area that is evacuated
go ahead and leave, don't try to wait it
out said Charlene Lee of the Greenville
area Red Cross.
Safety precautions are not only impor-
tant for residents of the coast, but also res-
idents of the Greenville area.
Lee recommends that Greenville resi-
dents begin to prepare for a possible disas-
Disaster kits including a flashlight and
batteries should be readily available.
Residents should go ahead and stock up on
water and take inventory of their homes
and their belongings.
Residents should also be aware of
where to go if a tornado were to develop
from the heavy winds expected in the
"You should go in a place where there
are no windows and stay out of the sec-
ond and third floors of your homes Lee
According to Lee a hurricane is a seri-
ous mattet and should be taken serious-
ly by all, including Greenville residents.
'The reason we issue warnings is so
people will start taking precautions now,
they are not to be ignored Lee said.
The university has made available a
web site that includes hurricane safety

intelligence, but rather the fashion
sense of the person referred to.
Little quirks like that make it a lit-
tle bit harder, even when English
words are used.
Not only that, even when
English is written, sometimes it's
just a little bit odd. Stuff that just
sounds weird, like "Set aside enjoy-
ment time with your friends"
(which I saw on an advertisement
on a drink machine) is pretty com-
mon, but I suppose that's to be
expected. English is a pretty diffi-
cult language�even American
people make simple mistakes like
spelling "lose" as "loose" or using
"farther" instead of "further
Even with all that, it's is still
admirable that the Japanese are
almost as comfortable with English
as they are with their own language.
Sometimes though, it becomes a
little alarming to people like
myself. English is more of a trendy
fad to teenagers here. The other
day I saw a girl with a t-shirt
adorned with yellow and black
stripes along the message "WARN-
ING-GIRL" Like I wouldn't be
able to tell that from looking at the
front of her shirt anyways. Just the
other night I ran into an elementary
school girl who was wearing a shin
advertising urn, skateboards. The
name of the company was some-
thing she would probably get
slapped for wearing in the States. In
fact, I've seen lots of people wear-
ing t-shirts with profanity on them
that would send the Christian
Coalition up in arms.
I'm not sure how many people
actually know what these shirts say,
but as most people would probably
just look the other way if they did.
It's not too much of a problem here.
As an American though, I just keep
reminding myself that since these
people have been studying English
for about as long as I have been
studying Japanese, I probably
sound just as weird. For now
though I suppose I'll just look for-
ward to moving back into my
"mansion" back in the States.

drinking is defined as consum-
ing four or more drinks for a
female. When drinking, women
consume far fewer drinks than
The CORE survey showed
that, when drinking, 38 percent
of the women consumed
between one and two drinks, 38
percent had three to four
drinks, 19 percent had five or
six drinks and only six percent
had seven or more drinks.
Morphet said that women tend
to not be binge drinkers.
If they do have a problem,
women may be at a disadvan-
tage for treatment
Morphet says that treatment
programs are more targeted
"Research studies show that
women tend to do better with
He added that women tend
to want to explore the issues
behind the drinking.
Morphet says that the pre-
ponderance of people in treat-
ment for alcohol are men.
There are a lot of barriers for
women in getting treatment
like motherhood, lack of insur-
ance, concern over the custody
of children and transportation
The reasons why women
drink are varied, but there is
one area that seems to stand out
above others. Some studies
show that for females who have
a drinking problem, as much at
70 percent have seen or been
involved with childhood
domestic violence or abuse.
Many treatment programs do
not deal with this issue behind
While drinking is a problem
at ECU, Morphet does not
think that we are much differ-
ent from the national averages,
and the studies show that.
Women do have different rea-
sons for drinking and it effects
them differently that men, and
Morphet said his office is open
for anyone having a problem
with any substance abuse.

The East Carolinian
University negotiates with ESPN for '99 opener
Pimtes hope to open
season at Ericsson
assistant sports editor
The ECU Athletic Department is
currently in the final stages of
negotiations with representatives
from ESPN Regional and the
Carolina Panthers to play the
Pirates 1999 season opener against
West Virginia at Ericsson Stadium
in Charlotte. The match up
would be televised nationally on
ESPN or ESPN2.
"Negotiations are going on
and there may be an announce-
ment in the next few days asso-
ciate athletic director Henry
Assistant athletic director Lee
Workman stressed that "noth-
ing's been finalized" as to the
specific terms of the negotia-
tions, but said he hopes to make
an official announcement by the
Sept. 5 opener.

could receive over $1 million

refused to comment on the
amount ECU would receive or

Mike Hamrick said. "But if it
were to happen, any time you're on

that such national exposure is one
of the factors in deciding on mov-
ing the location of the game as orig-
"If it thc exposure wasn't very
positive,we wouldn't do it

the ECU ticket office for a to-be-

of the points still being debated,

age Dean Diltz, Communications
Coordinator for ESPN said.
If the deal goes through, it will
be the second time the Pirates
have played in Ericsson Stadium.
The first was in 1996 against NC
State, when the Pirates defeated
the Wolfpack 50 to 29. The game,
dubbed Carolina's Clash, drew a
crowd of 66V47, the largest audi-

Stadium construction reaches completion for now
$13 million addition to seat
fans for first home game
Tracy M. Laubach
The upper deck of Dowdy-Ficklen
Stadium was completed in late June, a $13
million addition that took a little longer
than originally planned but has slated ECU
with having the third largest seating capac-
ity of all university stadiums in the state of
Associate athletic director Henry
VanSant claims that the 8,000 seat addition
has made Dowdy-Ficklen a first-class stadi-
um that compares favorably with other
Division I stadiums across the country.
"There are some that are bigger and
some that are smaller, but I have not been
in an upper deck that is nicer than ours
VanSant said. "One of the biggest advan-
tages of sitting in the upper deck is that
there is plenty of leg room, so people can
walk in front of you without causing you to
have to move. Also, there are contour seats
that either 16,18 or 20 inches wide, so they
are very comfortable
The inside of the addition is extremely
spacious, providing enough room to accom-
modate everyone who can sit in
the upper deck. There are four
concession stands, a souvenir
shop and the restrooms feature
automatic flushers and handwash-
ers to accommodate Pirate fans.
"Convenience is another thing
that makes the addition one of
the nicest around VanSant. "It is
easy to get around, so people
should be able to get up to use the
restroom during a timeout and
still get back in time to not miss
Additionally, the upper deck
contains 84 seats that are wheel-
chair accessible and features a
separate handicap level, where
seating is provided for not only handi-
capped individuals but their guests as well.
On August 9-14, the athletic department
hosted an open house of the upper deck at
which time more than 1,000 people visited
the newest part of Pirate football.
"Everyone was absolutely ecstatic about
what they saw VanSant said. "The stu-
dents are going to be very pleased with
what has been done
VanSant explained that although there
was much controversy over the delays and
problems that were encountered during
construction stages, there was never a

"There were several insignificant fac-
tors, one of which was a beam that had to
be taken down and replaced after it was put
up VanSant said. "Our general contractor,
Davidson Jones Beers, was on the project
from start to finish, and was just not able to
get the work done as quickly as originally
Pirate Club executive director Dennis
Voting said that with the majority of season
tickets being sold to Pirate Club members,
the additional seats allow for more priority
"The upper deck will help us to accom-
modate more people with better seating
Young said. "This will definitely help out
program because more people will be
pleased with what wc have to offer
Seating in the upper deck corresponds
to seating in the lower sections of the sta-
dium and 1,000 scats have been reserved
for students, who can request upper deck
seating at the time they pick up their rick-
Another project that is undergoing
construction at this time is the addition of
a club level, which will seat 1.3(H) high
level donors. With a projected finish date
of 1999, this level will feature entertain-
ment areas and lounges, and will be
between the upper and lower decks.
In the distant future, the athletic
department plans to begin the next phase
of the stadium pro-
ject, which will
include a double
deck on the south
known as the
"alumni side") of
new press box will
be built, as well,
which will run the
entire length of the
"When we do
begin this phase
will depend on how regularly we fill 43,000
seats at this time VanSant said. "At a uni-
vctsity this size, we base good participation
from students when wc see a demand for
10,000 tickets. If we see that much support,
it will speed up further additions
Furthermore, the university plans on
purchasing a new scoreboard in cither 1999
or 2(XM), which will cost approximately $2
million. For now, the scoreboard has been
freshly painted and has received routine
maintenance in preparation for the upcom-
ing football season.
"Dowdy-Ficklen is tnily one of the nicest
on campus stadiums around VanSant said.
"You can see the entire city of Greenville from
up there, and it is beautiful

Newcomers Robert Hooker,
Michael Huez, and Leshaun
Jenkins will complement the men's
team, while Mary Elaine Knox is
the only new member for the Lady
Pirates team at this point.
Huez, a sophomore from Austria,
came to ECU to combine playing
tennis with getting a good education,
which, according to him, is practically
impossible in his home country. Due
to academic eligibility obstacles,
Derek Slate is one of four seniors returning to lead the men's tennis team this season.

SID�ECU's football game at the
University of Cincinnati this fall
will be played on Thursday, Nov. 5
and will be televised nationally on
ESPN. Gametime will be 8 p.m.
EST. The original date for the
game at Nippert Stadium had
been Saturday, Nov. 7.
This will be the second consec-
utive season that the Pirates and
Bearcats have met in front of the
ESPN cameras for a national tele-
cast. ECU prevailed 14-7 last Nov.
15 in Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
"This is another great opportu-
nity for our program to experience
national exposure Mike
Hamrick, ECU athletic director
said. "Our program's stature has
continued to rise on a national
scope and ESPN recognizes that.
We are excited about playing
Cincinnati before a national audi-
"This game, in addition to our
other television opportunities,
gives us as good a local, regional
and national television arrange-
ment as anybody in the county
In addition to ECU's exposure
with ESPN, the Pirates also will be
seen this season as part of
Conference USA's national televi-
sion package on FOX Sports Net.
Two ECU games (Oct. 3 vs. Army
and Oct. 31 vs. Houston) will also
be carried regionally on FOX
Sports South while the Pirates also
have a unique three-year agree-
ment for extensive local coverage
of their games on WITN-TV,
ECU will be making its ninth
national television appearance in
the past three seasons. It will be
the Pirates' third exposure on
ESPN in that period. ECU also
has played on ESPN2 three times
in those three years.
Cincinnati Bearcats face
unlikely repeat in bowl
CINCINNATI (AP) Don't look
for the University of Cincinnati to
go to a second consecutive bowl
game. The Bearcats will be paying
the price for last year's break-
Cincinnati went 8-4 last year,
made its first bowl appearance in
47 years, won the Humanitarian
Bowl and had five players drafted
(and seven signed) by the NFL.
By comparison, Ohio State that
school two hours north lost the
Sugar Bowl and had no one drafted.
Instead of feeling smug,
Cincinnati is feeling hard-pressed
to match its best all-around season
in 20 years. The core of the team is
gone, and the Bearcats are nicked

The major concern is an offen-
sive line that, while experiencing
growing pains last year also caused
some pains for the guy it was sup-
posedly protecting. An optimist

If current cornerbacks Antoine

leading tackier, and Ahmed

opposing wide receivers, look for
Ohio State to turn up the pressure

superlative. Punter Brent
