Professor charged
with forging

NEWS EDITOR
Steven Cerutti, an ECU foreign
languages professor, appeared in
court for the first time Monday to
answer charges of obtaining a con-
trolled substance by fraud. A con-
tinuance was filed and
Cerutti will next appear in
court Oct. 2i. Cerutti was
arrested Friday.
The arrest report said
Cerutti used a forged pre-
scription to obtain
Hydrocodone at the CVS
Pharmacy at 505 S.
Memorial Drive.
Cerutti declined to
comment on the arrest.
Obtaining a controlled
substance by fraud is a
class I felony that is punishable by
a maximum penalty of a 10 month
suspended sentence for a first
offense and 15 months for anyone
with a previous criminal record.
Police say that Cerutti gave a
CVS pharmacist a prescription to
buy Hydrocodone. The pharma-
"The CVS pharmacist then
called the doctor whose name was
on the prescription said Melissa
Bartlett, public information officer
for the Greenville Police
Department. "The doctor con-
firmed that the prescription was
forged
The police were then called and
Cerutti was arrested by Officer
P.D. O'Callaghan. Cerutti was later
freed on a $1500 secured bond.
Students and colleagues of
Cerutti reacted with shock to the
news.
"It is evident that
Cerutti has had a
tremendous impact on
not only the Classics
Depc, but also on indi-
vidual students' lives
said Amanda Austin,
senior classics major.
"We are all adult
enough to realize that
all people make mis-
takes, learn from their
mistakes and as a result
become better people
Last Thursday, TEC published

You Can't
Go Home
Again-
Future ofSpeigit home unknown
Steve Losey
news editor
Many of Francis Speight's paintings hang in buildings across
campus. An auditorium in the Jenkins Fine Arts Center and a building
bear the name of ECU's first artist-in-residence, but the house he
spent the last quarter century of his life in could be demolished to
make way for a major entrance off of Tenth Street.
"The master plan developed in 1992 called for the creation of a new
front door off of 10th Street said Layton Getsinger, vice chancellor
for Administration and Finance. "We've been working with the North
Carolina Historical Society to see if there is a place to move the house
instead of demolishing it
Several other organiza-
tions, including the Pitt
County Historical Society,
are working to find a vacant
lot towhich to move the
Speight home. However,
finding a location to move
the entire house to is easier
said than done.
"At this point, we'vi
identified some lots and are
discussing with the owners
about selling, but nothing
has been pinned down
said Scott Powers, regional
supervisor for Archives and
History at the State Historic
Preservation Office. "What
we'd like to see is a residen-
tial setting near ECU with ;
houses of the same size and age. The lot also has to be big enough
The lot size is not a pressing coneernaccording to Powers, because
"most lots, if they are vacant, are of the appropriate size
Speight was one of the preeminent artists to come from North
Carolina. He was born in 18 on a farm outside of Windsor and

attended Wake Forest College for three years. He studied at
Washington, D.Cs Cdfcoran School of Art and transferred to the
Pennsylvania Academy, where he spent the next forty years studying,
teaching, and refining his art.
While Speight was in Pennsylvania, he never forgot his roots. He
often visited North Carolina and, in 1931, became a charter member of
the N.C. Association of Professional Artists. In 1934, he taught a sum-
mer art class at UNC-Chapel Hill. That year, his classes were so pop-
ular that Speight found he had three times the expected number of
students enrolled. The turnout for his courses ensured an art curricu-
lum at Chapel Hill.
Speight decided to permanantly return to his home state to paint
more of North Carolina's landscapes. In 1961, Chancellor Leo W.
Jenkins appointed Speight ECU'S first artist-in-residence, a position
he held until his retirement in 1976.
In 1936 Speight married Sara Blakeslee, herself a respected artist,
and they had two children, Thomas and Elizabeth. Speight and his
wife lived in their house just off of Ninth Street until his death in 1989
at the age of 93. Mrs. Speight moved back to Pennsylvania last sum-
mer to be closer to her children.
ECU owns the Speight home and the house next door, and as such
have every right to do what they wish, but have been "very coopera-
tive" towards the people trying to move the home, Powers said. The
woman who lives next to the Speight home has a rent contract with
ECU. Until she moves, the university can do nothing to the houses,
which gives those involved more time to find a vacant lot.
"(If the Speight home were torn down ECU would lose a tangi-
ble reminder of two of the most important artists to come out of North
Carolina said Mauri York, biographer of the Speights. "I realize and
respect that the university has a master plan and Chancellor Eakin has
done a wonderful job improving the campus' appearance, but it would
be nice if this structure could be preserved

ECU's housekeepers were honored Tuesday
with catered lunches and dinners that kicked off
International Housekeeping Week.
There was a lunch-in at noon on Tuesday for
the day staff and a dinner that followed for the
night shift. Flowet baskets, electric lights, and
pineapples were a few of the prizes given away
in drawings.
"It is wonderful to celebrate the excellent
work that our housekeeping staff does all year
long at this university said Dr. George Harrell,
assistant vice chancellor for Administration and
Finance.
According to Harrell, the housing staff did a
lot of extra work during the past summer. The
staff had a successful move-in weekend in the
residence halls, and they prepared for the meet-
ing with Tipper Gore in the Rivers building.
The first football game clean up went
very smoothly.
"We thought after this summer we could
rest, but the activity has not stopped said

Each fall semester ECU sponsors Career Day, which is a chance for students to learn about
different careers and what jobs they can get with the degrees they are currently pursuing.
On September 23, the General Classroom building will be packed with representatives from
a wide variety of companies, all of which hope to help students narrow their career and
academic interests into workable goals.
We at TEC feel that part of taking advantage of every opportunity available to you includes
participation in Career Day.
Talking to someone who has a career in the field you're interested in can help clear up
misconceptions, doubts and anxieties about the job. It can also help you determine if the job
is right for you.
Career Day is also a way to help you solidify your major, or to change it if necessary. If you
attend, you'll have the perfect chance to ask yourself, and people with experience, if your
major is the right path to take in pursuing the career you want.
Even if you have no idea what you want to do with the rest of your life, Career Day is a good
place to start thinking about it. You can pick up literature about fields that interest you, and the
representatives will be able to explain the pros and cons of their jobs to you.
Internship opportunities are available, too. The representatives will be ready to tell you
about different ways to beef up your resume and make it stand out from the rest.
Ask the real professionals questions while you have the chance. You may even discover a
career that you'd never even though of before, or see an overlooked choice in an entirely new
light.
It's never too early to start preparing for graduation and to begin deciding what you want out
of life.
Use Career Day as a tool for discovering exactly what's out there, so that when the time
comes to make your decision you'll be informed.
If you'd like to learn more about how to get the career you want but can't make it to Career
Day, contact Career Services at 328-6050 or Career Counseling at 328-6661.
OPINION
Columnist
Details of Starr report too graphic
OPINION
Steve
KLEINSCHMIT
Columnist
He is our president and if he
is doing things that brings his
office and therefore our
country into disrepute, then
his constituents have a right to
know, BUT making Kenneth
Starr's report open to the
public is just too much.
Regardless of the fact that writing
about (Clinton is like heating a dead
horse, there are some very
necessary issues that involve this
case that are being hlown over just
because the general American
public is tired and bored with the
whole Clinton scandal. This
growing apathy towards the
Clinton-Lewinsky situation, while
perhaps founded, is harmful to the
case and to the forces that propel
and counteract it. I think there arc-
some basic, simple truths that
should be highlighted in order to
make a proper judgment call on
the whirlwind of scandals and
events.
First, every person involved in
this case is scum to some degree.
Clinton, Starr, Lewinsky,
Lewinsky's mother, Tripp�the
whole lot. They represent
everything that is negative about
politicsi.eself-seeking, amoral.
etc.Thcrefore, based on their total
disregards for the truths, none of
them are to be trusted. So finding
the "truth" through the quagmire
of accusations, denials, and
betrayals is practically impossible.
Secondly, we do have a right to
know what Clinton did (and most
likely continues to do) even if that
intrudes on his private life. Even
though this may sound unfair, well,
neither is life. lie is our presidem
and if he is doing things that brings
his office and therefore our country
into disrepute, then his
constituents have a right to know,
BUT making Kenneth Starr's
report open to the public is just too
much. It's too much because that
report is so raunchy it's
embarrassing to our country. Plus,
making the report accessible to
children is wrong. Children do not
need to view the symbol of our
country in the way he is portrayed
(accurate or not) in the Starr report.
That is a sure-fire way to disillusion
future generations to government
and politics.
Thirdly, Gore becoming
president is just a scary thought. I
am not a big Clinton fan, but if
removing him means promoting
(iore, then a serious review needs
to be made. Gore represents the
notion that things can always get
worse
Finally, Clinton's removal is not
a legal debate but rather a political
contest.
Congress is only going to act
how their voters compel them to
act. The legal issues are a
smokescreen, existing only to add a
tad bit of validity to the
Congressional decision. This is
where the public comes in. So,
once again, we should not throw
our hands up. It is more important
than ever and is quite crucial to
evaluate the case and voice and
educated opinion.

parked in a no parking
zone at 7:57 am, three
minutes before it was legal. I
came back from class and my
truck was gone. I found it at
the University Amoco and
paid fifty five dollars to those
toothless wonders and got my
truck and the ticket.
Sometimes I think the local police-
need to get their act straight. They
always seem to nail the students for
things even our hometown cops
would let slide. I'm sure that many
of you have had experiences with
the ECU and Greenville police.
Here is my history of experiences
with the man.
During the tailgate this past
week, I saw five uniformed officers
and one undercover officer give-
one guy a ticket for underage-
possession of alcohol. At the same
time, I saw a lady Stumble to her
car and drive out of the tailgating
field, drunk as a fish. That's sort of
like writing a ticket for jaywalking
while there's a murder happening
right beside you. Sure it's stupid,
but at least they'll meet their quota
for tickets this month.
In August, 1 was stopped and
the officer asked for all the regular
documents. I Ie took me back into
his unmarked car and gave me a
ticket for a missing registration. I
never found out why he Stopped
me,but luckily the DA threw it out
of court. Also, I parked in a no
parking zone at 7: 57 am, three
minutes before it was legal. I came
back from class and my truck was
gone. I found it at the University
Amoco and paid fifty five dollars to
get my truck and the ticket. The
cop had ticketed it at 7:59 am and
called the tow truck, one minute
before it would be legally parked.
Then, I parked for 5 minutes at
RingGoid Towers, and went to
drop off some papers in a freind's
apartment in the building. When I
RingGoid 'Towers, low and behold,
my truck was gone. I Iniversity
Amoco strikes again. I think that if
they had frequent tower miles, I
would have a trip to 'Tahiti by now.
And even my friends arc not
immune from persecution. lv
friend Anthony pulled into a
parking spot from the wrong
direction in front of Jones I lall anil
got an eighty five dollar ticket
Then he got a ticket for having his
resident sticker on the wrong side
of his back window. My friend John
got a ticket for doing 20 in a 15 on
College Hill Drive. Dan was
stopped and searched because he-
had a Cannabis sticker on his back
window. 'That doesn't sound like-
probable cause to me.
1 don't believe for one
minute,that there is that little-
crime in Greenville such that the
Police Department has to devote
such a large chunk of their force to
being meter maids and harassing
college students. I have gotten so
tired of the city's constant
meddling with myself and my
friends, that 1 am applying to
transfer to Virginia Tech . 'They
seem to be a bit more respectful to
their students. The city seems to
forget that without us students and
our money, Greenville would still
be nothing but a tobacco field and
a gas station on US 264. And I
would rather spend my money on
an education.

Ride a bike for health, happiness
Write a Letter to tke Editor
Got something to say? Need somewhere to say it?
Bring your letter to the eastcarolinian , located on the
2nd floor of The Student Publications Building
mean, consider all the
advantages of riding your
bike. Sure, you can t go very
far. But if all your friends
can't go very far either, then
you can all stay where you
are and form a loving,
happy little commune. It
worked in the sixties!
Today I woke up at seven o'clock
(in the AM, you slackers), crawled
out of bed and stumbled into the
shower, threw some crap in a bag
and missed breakfast- all so that I
could ride my bike to work. And I
feel great.
I was only ten minutes late and
successfully avoided any major
collisions with a vehicle, curb, or
pedestrian. Ami I was only honked
at and veiled at negatively five or
six times. My faithful old bike- and
old is truly an understatement- got
me to work safely, and I didn't
have to feel responsible for any air
pollution or strip mining for fossil
fuels in the process.
You know, after you do that just
once, suddenly all those thousands
of Japanese people you see on TV
biking to work don't seem crazy at
all. In fact, they seem a lot more
sane than the rest of us. The only-
downside to the whole trip (if you
don't consider the fact that I'm
incredibly out of shape and that
my bike had been sitting in the
leaky basement of my parent's
house for the past six years,
completely untouched by human
hands) was that every other breath
1 took was probably toxic.
Mnimmm, carbon monoxide '
Now, if only half of the people
who live in any sort of proximity to
work or school would just leave
their cars parked a little more
often, then when we do get out of
bed early to ride our bikes, we
could take deep long breaths, or
short windy ones like me, and not
poison our lungs. Wouldn't that be
great?
I mean, consider all the
advantages of riding your bike.
Sure, you can't go very far. But if all
your friends can't go very far either,
then you can all stay w here you arc
and form a loving, happy little
commune. It worked in the sixties!
And consider the shapely IcgJJ
muscles you will get- after the"
bruises heal. You eventually ��
develop a tolerance to inclimate
weather, including but not limited J
to snow, rain, sleet, hail, and"
hurricane-like conditions. In the��
end you would be able to ride!
through hell, give Satan a high
five, and come back to tell thejj
story. ��
Oh, and a certain angry littleii
traffic cop would have a really! J
difficult time towing a bike, don't;J

this stems from the fact that my car t

winter comes. Then I may change i
my mind. But in the meantime, if t

It was in one of his courses that
Morrison received his inspiration to
run races. In 1972, Morrison taught a
student who was a marathon runner.
His enthusiasm was so contagious,
Morrison decided to give it a try.
"He was very enthusiastic about
marathons Morrison said. "I would
train with him for the races
In 1980, it was another friend that
convinced Morrison to get involved
in triathlons.
"It was a veryjpjHhg sport then
Morrison said. " 5M Ironman had
only been going on for a couple of
years
From that moment on, Morrison
has kept active with triathlons. I lc
said he usually does two or three
triathlons a year, but he has already
participated in five.
Morrison trains extensively to
keep himself in phenomenal shape
to participate in these races.
According to Morrison, his training
involves running, cycling and swim-
ming three times a week and exten-
sive workouts on the weekends. I lc

Velo club, a bicycle organization that
began last year on campus.
Morrison nas participated in 21
marathons, the last one which took
place in Charlotte, NC in 1994,
Recently he has been training
with 35 year old Carl Bonner, a local
engineer who, Morrison said, is a very
good triathlete.
"I lc has been training to do the
"Hawaii Ironman the first of next

Hurricane safety myths brought to light
Taped windows not
much for protection
I'll I I II' (�' I I I I s
, II W RITfcR
Why should we board up the win-
dows during a hurricane? Is it true
that two hurricanes can combine to
ffjrrn one big one? Since all the big
hurricanes have already happened,
We do not have to worry about them
inv moreright; These questions
and myths have conic up since
Hurricane Bonnie, and given the
ictivity of other hurricanes in
recent ueeks. they are becoming
more and more important.
Let's start off with the basics
first: What is the difference
between a hurricane water) and a
hurricane warning? A watch means
that storm conditions are right for
potentially dangerous Weather.
During a hurricane watch, people
should be stocking up on emer-
gency supplies, and for those who
live near the ocean, it niav be the
time to prepare for evacuation.
When a hurricane warning is issued.
it means that hurricane conditions
(a storm with winds of seventy four
m.p.h. or greater) is expected in the
area in twenty four hours or less. In
the event of a warning, people
should either evacuate or move to
safe shelter.
Just because Bonnie has passed
and left everyone with the sense
that there is not anything to worry
about anymore, it is not the time to
let our guard down. Hurricane sea-
son lasts from June 1-Nov. 30. Most
hurricanes occur from the middle of
August through the middle of
Octoben The size and duration of
hurricanes can vary. According to
1 S Today, the smallest storm
might be one hundred miles across,
while the largest might have a cir-
cumference of three hundred
miles. Some hurricanes have been
kpown to last a few hours, while
others have lasted for more than
two weeks.
There are many commonly held
beliefs about hurricanes.
When a hurricane is coming,
most of us shut our windows and
cover them with tape. We do this
because we think that the wind will
blast in the window and blow glass
everywhere. While this is true, the
tape only provides some protection.
'The Federal Emergency
Management Agency says:
"Permanent shutters arc the best
protection. A lower-cost approach is
to put up plywood panels. Use half
inch plywood cut to fit each win-
dow. Do this long before the
storm
Of course shutters and fitted
plywood covers arc expensive.
Another alternative is to bring
inside any outside objects like law n
chairs and tables. Just imagine what
an ordinary garbage can will do at
seventy five m.p.h. heading toward
your house. The danger of an open
window is that when wind gets
inside a building, it can push the
roof upwards and WHOOSH
there goes your roof.
'There is a myth that if two
storm systems are near each other,
they can combine to form a huge
hurricane. This is false. If two
storms are in the vicinity of one
another, they will most likely weak-
en one or both. Or they may even
circle each other, but storms never
hit each other. Also, most of us see
hurricanes as the wrath of Mother
Nature and that they just cause-
death and destruction. While this is
Taping windows offers little to no protection from wind during an actual hurricane.
PHOTO BY KIM MCCUMBtR
certainly true, hurricanes serve rhe
beneficial purpose of bringing rain
and ending droughts. 'Texas usually
has a large amount of thoughts each
year. They are usuallv ended by the
coming of an hurricane.
Some final warnings: During a
storm, when the "eve" passes over,
a calmness comes to the sky. Do
not be fooled by this, the worst part
of the hurricane will occur after the
eve moves on. Be alert of tornadoes
which usually spawn off of hurri-
canes and increase the damage
done to an area. Flash floods also
occur because of hurricanes. If you
are driving and come across an area
of water, turn around and go anoth-
er route.
If another hurricane were to hit,
just remember the most important
safety rule of all: Don't panic.

Many chains and new business-

certainly true, hurricanes serve the
beneficial purpose of bringing rain
and ending droughts. Texas usually
has a large amount of droughts each
year. They arc usually ended by the
coming of an hurricane.
Some final warnings: During a
storm, when the "eye" passes over,
a calmness comes to the sky. Do
not be fooled by this, the worst part
of the hurricane will occur after the
eve moves on. Be alert of tornadoes
which usually spawn off of hurri-
canes and increase the damage
done to an area. Flash floods also
occur because of hurricanes. If you
are driving and come across an area
of water, turn around and go anoth-
er route.
If another hurricane were to hit.
just remember the most important
safety rule of all: Don't panic.

recruits fans to the stands
BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS
OF AMERICA
Themes set for each home game
Mario Schkriiai ker
SKNIOR WRITKR
The ECU volleyball program will have a
different promotional theme for each home
game to increase the public attention and
attendance for their sport.
Developed and conducted by the uni-
versity's sports marketing department, the
promotional program is aiming to fill
Mingcs Coliseum for the upcom-
ing home volleyball games.
"Families, students and kids
from Pitt County come to our
football and basketball games,
but many of them never saw a
volleyball game Christopher
Loney, assistant marketing
director said. "If we could bring
them out to watch a volleyba
game, maybe they would like the sport and
become true fans
According to Kim Walker, head volley-
ball coach, volleyball is a fast and exciting
sport to watch.
"If the arena is packed it would help the
players as well. Knowing that they are sup-
ported by the ECU community, they would
gain confidence Walker said.
The theme for today's' match against
Hampton at 6 p.m. is the 'Boys and Girls
Club According to Loney, all members of
the Boys and Girls Club of Pitt County
receive free tickets and special recognition
during the match. The first one hundred
fans admitted will receive small popcorn
and soft drink complements provided by
concession stand.
"We are targeting our younger kids for
today's' home game. The first
one hundred people will also
receive a team volleyball
poster Loney said. "If it's a
close game, a big crowd
could make the difference to
win the game
There will also be a 'ECU
serve it up contest' at each
home game according to Loney.
Ten people will be picked randomly to par-
ticipate in a competition to hit the ball over
the net between every 2nd and 3rd game.
"They participants can win pizzas,
CDs, movie tickets, T-shirts, and much
more. There will be a total of 40 or 50 items
on each side of the net Loney said.
Having the youth
involved in these activities
is something that is very
important to not, only
the players and coach-
es, but the athletic
department as well.
"But we want our
younger students get
involved in the sport,
too Loney said.
AH ECU students
living in resident
halls will be invit-
ed to attend the
'1st Annual
Resident Hall's
Night Out' on
October 23, when
ECU will host
William & Mary.
According to Loney,
promotional activities
for that event will
include pizzas to the
loudest section,
Sections will be
pre-selected upon
the size of the
dorm's and students can decorate and hang
banners in the arena. One lucky student will
win one month of meals at Todd Dining
Hall.
Other themes will include 'Family
Night' with great family prize packages.
The first package will include four com-
plementary dinners and four movie
tickets. The second pack-
age will include a weekend
room at Atlantic Beach,
along with dinner for
four. The third package
will be four tickets to an
ECU football game.
"Nevertheless, the
main goal of the program
is that the ECU commu-
nity will show up tonight
and for all of the home
games to show our purple
and gold colors Loney
said. "And if our
, team beats Hampton,

Team to take on Ohio
Bobcats this weekend
Traa is Barki. i: v
SKMOK WRITER
ECU will attempt to run its winning
streak to two games this Saturday when
the Pirates travel to Athens to take on the
Ohio Bobcats.
The two schools have met only once
before, a wild 55-45 ECU victory two
years ago in Greenville. In that game,
ECU held a 55-24 fourth quarter lead but
nearly saw it slip away as Ohio scored
three straight touchdowns. Many of
Ohio's key players from that game are still
around. Quarterback Kareem Wilson and
tailback Steve Hoofkin combined for
three scores as sophomore starters in 19
and both are back for their senior seasons.
Ohio causes match-up problems for
most teams because of its unique option
offense.
"They are a true triple option team
head coach Steve Logan said. "It's going
to be a different set of problems for our
defensive unit in particular, to sit down
and play assignment football
Since ECU has played Ohio before,
most players know what to expect from
the Bobcats.
"A number of these kids experienced
the Ohio game, particularly the down
four Logan said. "That's a critical ele-
ment
Senior linebacker Rod Coicman was
one of those Pirates that played in the '96
game.
"I remember they were tough
Coleman said of the- Bobcats. "They
never give up. They just keep pounding
and pounding. They never quit
While the front seven arc somewhat
experienced against the triple option, the
secondary is not quite as experienced.
Safety Kelvin Suggs saw time on defense
against Ohio, but few others in the sec-
ondary did.
"It's going to be a whole new deal
Logan said.
Senior safety Kendrick Phillips played
only on special teams the last time these
teams met. He says that his role will prob-
ably change this week.
"I think I'll be moved up closer to the
line of scrimmage Phillips said. Thai
way we'll have more players for the run
On offense, ECU will try to take-
advantage of Ohio's small secondary with
taller wideouts LaMont Chappell and
Troy Smith. No player in the Bobcat sec-
ondary is taller than $'11, Logan says Ohio
could cause trouble with its attacking
defense.
"It's called a 30 defense Logan said.

Hall of Fame letter winners to be recognized at Houston game
Four Pirate athletes to
receive honor for 1998
Eric Cop cm
STAFF WRITER
On Oct. 31, four former Pirate athletes will
be honored as the 1998 inductees into the
ECU Hall of Fame.
The inductees this year are Earnest
Byner, Bob Maynard, Dr. Raymond
Pennington, and Dave Thomas. During
the halftime show of the Houston football
game, a special presentation will take place
in theifhonor.
"These are four of F)CU's finest said
Associate Athletic Director Henry VanSant.
The halftime show will cap off the Hall
of Fame Weekend that will be taking place
die weekend of October 30-31. The day
before the game there will be a golf tourna-
ment and banquet in honor of the Hall of
F'amers and Letterwinners.
The four Hall of Fame inductees are
football standouts in the history of Pirate
football. Among these four, two of them
were two-sport athletes.
From 1980-1983, Byner played as a full-
back for the Pirates, rushing for over 2,000
yards in his college career before starting a
career in the NFL with the Cleveland
Browns.
Byner was invited to the Pro Bowl in
1990 and 1991, and has rushed for over
7,000 yards in his NFL career. After 14 sea-
1
sons and membership to 3 teams, Byner is
now working in the office for the Baltimore
Ravens.
Maynard was on the Pirate football team
and ran track from 1954-1958. He now
lives in Raleigh after retiring from the John
Deere Company where he resumed the
position of vice president and general man-
ager. Maynard now is working with the
Amadas company out of Georgia.
This honor is one that means much to
Maynard.
"It's fantastic he said.
Pennington was another two-sport star
as a football and baseball player from 1953-
1957. While being named to the Dean's
List, Pennington managed to make all-con-
ference for two years and was co-captain in
his senior season for the football team.
Pennington is now a professor of physical
education and the mayor of Lumbcrton,
N.C.

team from 1957-1960 and won the 'Most

IT'S NOT EVERY DAY
YOUGETACOMPHMENT
LIKE THAT.
All financial companies charge operating fees
�L . and expenses�some more than others. Of
course, the lower the expenses you pay, the better.
That way, more of your money goes where it
should �towards building a comfortable future.
We make low expenses a top priority.
As the largest retirement system in the
world'�a nonprofit company focused exclu-
sively on the financial needs of the educational
and research communities � our expenses are
among the lowest in the insurance and mutual
fund industries.2
In fact, TIAA-CREF's 0.31 average fund
expenses are less than half of the expense charges
of comparable funds It's why Morningstar�
one of thenation's leading sources of annuity and
mutual fund information � says. "At that level
TIAA-CREF is cheaper than any other
variable annuity policy, and is even compet-
itive with the cheapest mutual fund complexes,
though it offers far more benefits
"TIAA-CREF sets the standard in the
financial services industry
Of course, expenses are only one factor to
consider when you make an investment decision.
Morningstar also noted our commitment to
"consumer education, service" and "solid
investment performance Because that can
make a difference in the long run, too.
At TIAA-CREF, we believe people would
like to spend more in retirement, not on their
retirement company. Today, over two million
people count on that approach to help them
build a comfortable and secure future. So
can you. To find out more, call us at
