Stadium not just for football
Type of event determines
cost of renting stadium
Want to hold an event in Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium?
It'll cost you.
Many costs and factors come into play when an
organization requests to use Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
Any use other than a Pirate football gains must first be
approved by athletics director Mike Hamrick.
"It depends on what type of organization you are
said Judd Crumpler, assistant director of operations for
the Athletics Department. "There are different
The fees are decided by the type of organization,
what�if any�affiliation it has with the university,
and what kind of admission fee it will charge.
Non-profitnon-profit groups are non-profit organi-
zations that do not charge admission at the gate. They
are charged $4500 per day to use Dowdy-Ficklen
Stadium. The Franklin Graham Organization's
Festival '98 is an example of a non-profitnon-profit
Non-profitfor-profit groups are non-profit organi-
zations that sell admission tickets for a price. The use
of the stadium for a non-profitfor-profit group would
cost $6000 per day.
Events that are put on by the Student Union are
divided into two categories. An event that would be
co-sponsored by the Student Union and a non-univer-
sity organization would be charged $1500 per day.
Fees for an event sponsored solely by the Student
Union would be negotiated between I Iamrick and the
Ticketed events organized by promoters outside
the university for a profit, such as a concert, would be
charged $25,000 per day.
Keeping the football field in good shape is one of
the major concerns for the athletics department.
"We took every precaution and the Franklin
Graham people have been very cooperative said Jeff
Davis, assistant athletics director for Facility-
Operations. "You run a risk every time you do some-
thing like this
When preparing for Festival '98, a large mat called
a Porta Floor and plywood were set on the field to
minimize damage to the grass.

sworn into SGA
speaker of house
V I L L I A M L fi L 1 E V EJl
The Student Government
Association (SGA) held its first
meeting of the year to swear-in
the legislature and voted-in Steve
Marasco as speaker of the house.
Joshua Beardsley, SGA attor-
ney general, swore-in the legis-
late body that was elected last
Wednesday, including class
presidents, vice presidents,
day representatives, and resi-
dence hall representatives.
"I know several of the peo-
ple personally who are going
to represent the legislative
body Beardsley said. "I
think we are going to have a
good year and I look forward
to working with everyone
Marasco was voted into the
office of speaker of the house
by the legislative body. The
speaker elects the committee
chairs for student welfare,
rules and judiciary, screenings
and appointments and appro-
priations. The members of the
legislature were given the chance
to ask for certain positions on the
committees, but Marasco has
the responsibility of picking
Marasco felt that his previous
experience at other schools will
help him as speaker.
"I was Student Government
president at Guilford College two
years ago, and there the president
facilitates the meetings, which is
very similar to what the speaker
does here Marasco said.
The executive branch gave its
report of the summer's accom-
plishments and the year's goals for
According to vice president
Leslie Pulley, during the summer
the executive council sent letters
to freshmen to get involved and
added a sophisticated computer to

Belk endows School of Art sculpture foundry in Mendenhall
Higher quality statues
expected as result ofgjft
Longtime ECU supporter Irwin
Belk has announced plans to endow
the ECU School of Art sculpture
foundry with a $100,000 gift. In
honor of his contribution, the
foundry has been renamed the Irwin
The foundry, located in the
Jenkins Fine Art Center, consists of a
foundry room, work spaces, a mold
making room and a kiln yard. The grant will
enable art students who work in the foundry to
do large scale castings.
Carl Billingsley, associate professor in the
School of Art and coordinator of sculpture, said
the Belk endowment will allow ECU to make
the physical improvements to the foundry that
will make it "one of the finest in our region and
most significant in our state
Phil Dixon, vice chair of the Board of
Trustees, said that this grant will boost the capa-
bilities of the machinery and the work space in
the four rooms found in the downstairs of the art

building. He also hopes that the four state-of-
the-art rooms, in conjunction with the superb art
students, will yield high quality statues.
"We will hopefully, from this new facility, be
able to make other statues which would be dis-
played on other campuses in the UNC sys-
tems Dixon said.
Michael Dorsey, dean of the School of Art,
recognized the enormous benefits the art school
will reap because of Belk's pledge.
"Mr. Belk recognized the need to support
this foundry as a professional artist's studio
Dorsey said. "With his wonderful assistance, our
area is currently being upgraded to
allow it to execute large-scale cast-
ings. This will mean even more
new and exciting opportunities
ahead for our program
Belk, a Charlotte native, has a
love of art, and especially sculp-
ture. He has commissioned vari-
ous monumental sculptures at uni-
versities and centers across the
country. Belk has proved to be a
big contributor to ECU and other
schools in the UNC system. Some
of Belk's other contributions to
this campus include the Carol
Belk Allied Health building, the
Belk and Tyler Hall dormitories,
and the Carol Grotnes Belk
Distinguished Professorship in
According to Dixon, Belk would like to see
more statues on college campuses. In addition
to the grant given to the School of Art for the
foundry, Belk has also recently bought a statue
that will be placed in the courtyard near Joyner
Library. Belk has also granted ECU money for a
statue of a pirate to be placed in front of the
Sports Medicine Building. The university
hopes to soon choose an ECU alumnae to sculpt

W I 1.1.1 A M L E L I E V E R
Students, faculty and staff at
ECU donated 121 pints of
blood Tuesday on the first
day of the American Red
Cross blood drive.
The drive was held in Lisa
Mendenhall Tuesday and
Wednesday and was spon-
sored by ECU's Air Force Reserve
Officers Training Corps (ROTC)
Detachment 600. Last year
Detachment 600 and the Red
Cross collected 283 pints of blood
at ECU, which exceeded their
quota for that year. Their goal for
this year was to collect 300 pints of
According to Cadet Sarah
Spence, due to Hurricane Bonnie
the Red Cross has had to cancel
many of its blood drives, and as a
result the need for blood in Eastern

Red Cross has raised the quota to
150 pints per day for the blood dri-
ves at ECU this year.
According to Charge Nurse
Margery Henson, the goals for dif-
ferent organizations' blood drives
are determined by the location and
population of the area it occupies.
The most important factors in
determining the goals of each
blood drive are the publicity raised
and the enthusiasm of the sponsor-

Despite that freedom, Bryan

People often complain about decisions made by politicians. It's nothing new. But most of
the time those are the same people who do not vote, do not participate in political activities,
and sometimes don't even know who their elected officials are. Everyone likes to complain,
but few people take it upon themselves to become informed. While the executive council sent
letters to freshmen trying to get them involved and is working on their website to help keep
you informed, it's generally not a good idea to rely on politicians to tell us everything.
The Student Government Association is a political body and is the only representative for
you, the student, in important decisions. If you wonder what is done with your student fees
and which clubs will get how much money, go and make an appointment with your
representative at the SGA and tell them that you want to talk to them about your concerns.
Students often feel that their voice is limited, especially in regard to recent decisions about a
new Pirate logo and the deal with Pepsi. Because the SGA President, Eric Rivenbark sits on
the Board of Trustees of this university, he is often the student's only voice in such matters. If
you want to make sure he and other representatives know how you feel then call them at the
SGA offices at 328-4726.
Better yet, if you are upset with SGA decisions or don't even know what SGA does, then
show up at SGA meetings and watch them in action. They meet once a week in Mendenhall
at 5 p.m. You can sit back and watch or, if you have something to say, ask a representative to
waive some of his or her time to you. If you go yourself then you will know exactly what is
going on and if the decisions that are made are really in your best interest. As an observer, you
will also serve an important funtion in that you can help keep SGA in check.
Occasionally the SGA has a closed session, but usually their meetings are open to the
public and they actually encourage you to come.

Terrorist training camp should shut down
Instead of focusing endlessly on
President Clinton's sexual activity,
Congress needs to pay attention to
the serious business and concerns
of U.S. citizens.
During the coming week, Congress
will vote on whether or not to close
the U.S. Army's School of the
Americas at Ft. Benning, Ga.
The United States runs its own
terrorist training camp called the
School of the Americas. For
decades the SOA has taught torture
and murder tactics to the Latin
American military. Its graduates are
responsible for the torture, murder
and disappearance of tens of
thousands of innocent people,
including many American citizens.
Unfortunately, these violations are
not just things of the past. Among
the SOA's biggest clients today arc
Mexico and Columbia. In 1997 and
1998, in both Columbia and
Mexico, officers trained at the
School of the Americas have been
implicated in massacres and

them to support the Torres

to endure as much pain and
suffering as this man has at the
hands of the American press.
First of all, I think that
committing perjury is a serious
crime, and is probably
impeachable. But that doesn't
mean I think that Ken Starr should
have asked all those perverted
questions on the Grand Jury tapes.
I couldn't tell if he was running an
unbiased investigation or writing
the plot for a sleazy porn movie. Is
it that Ken is trying to become
some kind of celebrity by ripping
away the sanctity of the Executive
Office, and pushing his own
agenda- possibly a book deal?
Now the President can't get
anything done. The President has
to worry so much about himself, he
can't run the country properly. He
can't even think about national
defense, increasing student loans
and grants, or improving low
income housing. He's too busy
getting prank calls from Swisher
Sweets, asking him to endorse
their new cigars. And if we lift the
trade ban, will they send some nice
ones from Cuba?
Also, good old Bill looks like his
health is failing. That man has had
so much worry that he must age
twenty years every five months.
Every time I see him on TV, he
reminds me more and more of Tom
Hanks in the movie Philadelphia. I
don't see how he keeps going.
I think the whole plot is a
conspiracy. I think that the only
reason this whole Lewinsky thing
ever happened is because she
would make money off it. Sure,
she'll probably get some cash. But
now she is the laughing stock of
the entire nation and the entire
world. And nobody could pay me
enough to put up with that.
Poor, poor kitty faces the knife
Conformity for the good of
the whole is a bitch. But
sometimes it's a necessity. I'm
really not sure whether Pepe's
balls constitute a true breech
in my morals. I know that I
already feel pretty darn
guilty about it, and I'm not
sure if I'll be able to look
him in the eye again.
This morning I was faced with the
hardest decision of my adult life.
The alarm went off at seven, but I
lay in bed pondering the fate of my
best friend's testicles for at least
My cat had an appointment to
What's a loving guardian to do?
Everything I've read and everyone
I talk to says that the only choice is
to cut 'em off. The theory is that
neutering a cat discourages him
from spraying your house full of
stinky kitty pee and from running
away in search of a mate. If you're
going to keep a cat in the house, he
must be neutered.
Ok, but do I have the right to
take away his balls? Personally, I
would be extremely upset if
someone came by, put me to sleep,
then permanently eliminated my
sex drive. That's the only reason I
wake up in the mornings at all-
well, that and I have to go to the
bathroom teally bad. Is it my place
to take away something that he was
obviously born with and would
really miss were it suddenly gone?
It's just not natural.
I asked the vet a million
questions- will he receive
anesthesia? Will his personality
change? Will he hate me? How
much does will it cost? But that
didn't help me in my quest for the
right thing to do. How could I
knowingly put my cat under the
knife for a procedure that is
unnecessary and is only done for
the owner's convenience?
Then there's the Bob Barker
argument. If I don't help control
the pet population, they will run
rampant, just like we humans have;
and see how much damage that has
caused? So many cats get put to
sleep every day. I would hate for
my Pepe's offspring to be among
those unwanted kittens.
When it comes down to it, I
either have to do what is deemed
right by society, and what is for the
good of society, or I have to go with
my heart and leave my little man's
boys in their rightful place. It
always comes to that. So I guess I
have to pick my battles.
Conformity for the good of the
whole is a bitch. But sometimes it's
a necessity. I'm really not sure
whether Pepe's balls constitute a
true breech in my morals. I know
that I already feel pretty darn guilty
about it, and I'm not sure if I'll be
able to look him in the eye again. I
have a feeling that my loving kitty
will know that I am responsible for
his sudden change in body mass. I
do know, however, that he will not
cause any illegitimate pregnancies,
there will be no love children or
teenage cat mothers, and there will
not be six more hungry mouths to
feed in the kitty ghetto because of
Anyway, I pick him up at four. I
hope that he can find it in his heart
to someday forgive me.

the same t-shirt? Welcome to the wild

A new semester means another

Recently, you may have noticed an
increase in new businesses opening
in the Greenville area. According
tojohn Chaffey, the executive
director of the Pitt County
Development Committee, a lot of
the development is due to the ever
increasing population growth
Greenville is seeing. .
Part of this growth of course
being from students, but new com-
panies have also brought a lot of

much loved Chic - Filets.
I he restaurant chain which spe-
cializes in chicken sandwiches and
salads offers a variety of choices
sush as, a Chic - Filet sandwich,
chicken strips and a char grilled
chicken sandwich. Their prices
range around the same as other fast
food restaurants and fit nicely into
the average college students
budget, with prices ranging from
around $2.3S to $5.00. If your look-
ing for inexpensive, fast and some-
thing a little healthier than
the usual fast food Chic- Filet is
a great choice.
One of Greenville's newest
additions. Schlotzsky's Deli,
opened lasr may and since has been
named the number one
Schlotzsky's east of the Mississippi.
The restaurant, part of a 800
restaurant chain, offers many non
traditional sandwich choices and
salads and pizzas. The restaurant
also offers 8" Sourdough Crust
Pizzas, Salads, Local Favorites, like
a Corned Beef Reuben, and a Kid's
Menu. Schlotzsky's is reasonably
priced offering anything from a
home style cup of soup for $1.49 or
the Original for $2.99 to a large
Original, which comes on an eight
inch bun for $8.49. Schlotzsky's is a
great choice if you're looking for a
deli sandwich with a twist, it's not
your usual ham and cheese.

Carlisle Pike as motorists pause to

Jr after the pumpkin � said to be

Wednesday at the market in
Hampden Township, Cumberland
It's become tradition for the
family to bring in a huge pumpkin
each year to be used as pan of the

Six men were needed to get this
one from the back of a pickup
truck to a sturdy table outside the
market's main entrance.

hard because there's just no place
to grab onto Retherford said.
He said the pumpkin came
from a farm in Virginia that special-

You know how some old-timers

us for our pampered, cushy
lifestyle, the conversation always
seems to get around to how they

"I don't know where the idea,
came from said Seamus, a fresh
man at St Ansclm College who.
arrived on campus last week after,
an eight-day, seven-night hike
from his home in Lisbon Falls
Maine. "Maybe it was in some,
deep, dark cranny in the back of

Pirates prepare for first
C-USA game of year
ECU will kick off its second season in
Conference USA when it faces Army in
Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium on Saturday.
Army comes into the game with a 1-
2 record after losing 27-15 at Rutgers
last week. The Cadets' only win of the
season came at the expense of
Cincinnati, giving them a share of the
conference lead with Tulane.
Army's wishbone will be the second
triple option style of offense that ECU
has faced in as many games. Ohio's
triple option, which the Pirates encoun-
tered on Sept. 19, is virtually identical
to Army's. While Ohio only attempted
three passes, head coach Steve Logan
said that Army will look to throw the
ball a bit more than the Bobcats did.
"What they like to do is throw it
about 15 times, complete nine or ten of
them, two of them for touchdowns with
post route type throws over the safety's
head Logan said. "They're very
adept at pulling off the line of scrim-
mage and hitting the post route back
behind the safety's head with the split
end. That's the big difference
between Army and Ohio: Army can
and will throw the football
"Hopefully having played a wish-
bone, an open date, and another wish-
bone coming to town, I'm hoping that
we can line up right and be more com-
fortable with what we're trying to get
done on defense Logan said.
Senior safety Kelvin Suggs said that
having played Ohio is an advantage for
"We got a chance to see where we
made mistakes at and what we can
improve on Suggs said. "I think the
Ohio game is really going to give us
Suggs will have an extra incentive to
play well on Saturday; local bragging
rights. Army running back Bobby
Williams was a high school teammate of
Suggs' at Kinston. Suggs said that he
and Williams engaged in some
friendly trash-talking this sum-
mer. Williams and Suggs met
on the field when ECU trav-
eled to Army in 1995, but both
were freshmen, and neither
one saw much playing time.
"This year we're both start-
ing, so it should be interest-
ing Suggs said. "I told him
we'll find out what happens
come game time
While Suggs is looking for-
ward to playing against
Williams, he says he won't get
caught up in personal battles.
"I'm going to go out and
play the kind of football I'm
used to playing and he'll proba-
bly do the same thing Suggs

Pirates in the Pros
ECU athletes make the most of their talents in theprus
ECU has never had to wonder if
it's players were going to play pro-
fessional football. The Pirates have
seen an abundance of players go to
the NFL draft and some other
players use their talents in other
leagues like the CFL and WLAF.
At least one ECU player has been
selected in 19 of the last 22 NFL
drafts, including an all-time ECU
high of eight in 1984. In the 1990's,
17 players have been selected.
It all begins in the 1960s with a
player named Thomas Michel who
played running back for the Pirates
from 1960-1963. In 1964 he took
his talents to the NFL, playing for
the Minnesota Vikings, and
became the first Pirate running
back to play in the NFL. Then
from 1967-1968 he played for the
Washington Redskins, and the
New Orleans Saints. He also
played a little bit of semi-pro with
the Anapolis Sailors.
"Professional football is differ-
ent from college football in that it is
a lot bigger and a lot faster and
everyone is good Michel said.
"There is no mediocre ball players
in pro ball
Mr. Michel, while at ECU aver-
aged 5.7 yards per carry and led the
1963 team in rushing, scoring, and
total offense and helped the team
to a 27-6 win over Northeastern in
the 1963 Eastern Bowl in
Allentown, PA, earning outstand-
ing back honors. His most memo-
rable moment in college ball was
when ECU beat Wake Forest in
1963 at the stadium dedication
game. In the pro's the most memo-
rable moment was making the
team with the Vikings.
Michel left his senior year to
play for the Vikings and then
returned to finish school in 1970. In
1978 he was inducted into the
ECU Hall of Fame.
"That was a great honor, some
of the ones that had already been
inducted before me I had played
withand these guys were great
athletes Michel said. "Things
you get sometimes they can't take
away and that's one of them
Now Mr. Michel resides here in
Greenville and works for the Post
Office which he has been doing for
Now to the 1970's where a play-
er named Carlester Crumpler who
is now a academic counselor here at
ECU and works on the Pirate
Sports Network. He played run-
ning back for the program from
1971-1973. After his senior year he
was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in
1974 and saw action as leading
rusher during the preseason. He
played for the Bills for a year and
then was traded to the Washington
Redskins where he was unable to
play because of a failed physical
and his career ended in 1977.
"My career actually ended very
quickly due to injuriesso I never
got myself established in the
league Crumpler said.
Professional football is different
from college ball in that it is a busi-
"It's strictly a businessyou are
competing for a job now, not just a
position on a team Crumpler
said. "You've got dreams you are
trying to fulfill, and while you may
be rooting for the other guy to do
well, you are also trying to pursue a
position on a team that may be
your livelihood for the next four to
While at ECU, Crumpler held
many records. In rushing he had
2889 yards total, in carries he had
658, and in scoring 222 points with
37 touchdowns. All of these were
ECU and Southern Conference
In the 1980's the Pirates saw an
outstanding fullback in the form of
Earnest Byner. He played for the
school's program from 1980-1983.
He finished his career with 2,049
rushing yards on 378 carries averag-
ing 5.4 yards a carry. In 1984 he
was selected in the 10th round by
the then Cleveland Browns and
played in the NFL for 14 seasons.
During these 14 years he played for
Browns, the Redskins and
His best season was in 1990
when he finished fourth in the
league with 1219 yards rushing and
earned a spot in the first Pro Bowl.
In 1991 he was named to his sec-

he rushed for 1048 yards and
ranked fifth in the NFL. He fin-

The 1995 ECUArmy game was
the only time the schools have met.
ECU won that game 31-25. While
the Pirates have changed their look
and offense a bit since the last time
these schools played, not much is
different at Army this time around.
"They've changed very, very lit-
tle on either side of the ball since
'95 Logan said. "VVc did some
good things in '95 against their
wishbone. We also did some things,
looking back on it, that we saw
where it got us in a lot of trouble
The key to stopping Army, or ing the clock away or it will be a
any option team, is to keep the ball
away from the players.

players back and don't allow the

touchdowns and 15 receiving
touchdowns. He now works in the
! front office of the Baltimore
Ravens. He currently ranks Uth
on ECU's all-time rushing list. He
did not miss a game the final nine
years of his career.
Finally, in the 1990's ECU saw a
tremendous running back with the
name, Jerris McPhail. He began
his career with the Pirates in 1995,
replacing record-setter Junior
Smith. He ran the 40-yard dash in
4.37 and has a 37.5 inch vertical
jump, the best-ever for an ECU
running back. His senior year he
led the team in rushing with 910
yards and five touchdowns. He
rushed for a career best of 209
yards. He finished his senior sea-
son with 38 receptions for 342 yards
and two touchdown catches.
His total rushing yards is 1409
with 288 carries and seven touch-
downs. In receiving he had 83 with
"He was one of the very best
running backs I've ever had an

very hard to replace him.
"We had become accustomed to

McPhail was drafted in 19 by
the Miami Dolphins and played for

Throughout the decades, ECU
has produced great talent in the
sport of football and will continue
to do so far into the future.
