two men outside the halls dressed as cheerleaders
dancing to '80s music.
The department of Human linvironmental
Sciences was named the winner of the float contest.
The float was a large birthday cake celebrating the
department's 30th anniversary. It was decorated with
purple and gold, and when it arrived at the chancel-

The Pirate Statue Committee and sculptor
Jodi Hollnagel worked out design details
Saturday for an imposing pirate sculpture
to be placed in front of the Ward Sports
Medicine Building.
The statue, which will stand twice life
size at 12 feet high on a 14 foot base, is
made possible by philanthropist and art
lover Irwin Belk, who donated $100,000
earlier this year to the Art School's
foundry. A committee chosen by
Chancellor Richard Eakin wanted
Hollnagel to bear in mind the words "dar-
ing "courageous "handsome and
"athletic when designing the statue.
The committee wanted the statue to have
an authentic and historically accurate look.
Belk had seen Hoilnagel's work previ-
ously and was impressed with her talents.
Belk recommended to members of the
committee that Hollnagel be the artist
chosen for the project.
"I met Mr. Belk in Chicago at an art
show, where he saw some of my works

Committee chairman Phil

money could come from dis-

Chancellor uses for beautifi-
cation projects throughout
the campus.
"Fans and opponents will

Dixon believes that this
may be the first of many stat-
ue projects over the next few
years. Proposals to build statues of other
people involved with the university may
soon find their ways to the drawing board.
"Depending on how this works out,
someday we may be able to create statues
of people such as North Carolina Senator
Tom Jarvis who is considered the founder

Bermuda field study ends
Shipwrecks studied

Devon White
staff writer
Graduate students from the
Maritime History and Nautical
Archeology departments have
returned from a month-long field
study in Bermuda.
The students studied various
shipwrecks ranging from 1600s to
the 1800s. Many of the shipwrecks

"This trip was everything I
hoped it would be said Doug
Jones, a graduate student of
Maritime History. "It was an over-
all good learning experience. "
The intensive study lasted from
5 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day and often
continued into the evening. The
students dove all day then recorded
found data and map sites at night.
The Bermuda Maritime museum
provided housing, boats and one of
the "best conservation laboratories
in the hemisphere said Gordon
Watts, professor of Maritime
Exploration of shipwrecks in
Bermuda is easier due to its clear
and shallow waters.
"Bermuda is an ideal environ-
ment to teach underwater skills
that are associated with underwater
archeology Watts said.
Watts has been taking a group of
grad students to Bermuda for field
study every year since 1983.
"Gordon is an excellent field
study director Jones said.
Keith Southerly, one of the grad-
uate students, will be using the
Hunter Galley shipwreck as the
topic for his thesis paper. The nine
students studied the Hunter Galley
closely during the trip and believe
it might be an old Bermuda Sloop
wreck dating back to 1751. This is
the first known structural evidence
found and studied.
Because the remains of the
wreck are few, the evidence is still
inconclusive. Now that the stu-
dents have returned they will be
working to determine if the exam-
ples are in fact remains of a
Bermuda Sloop.
The main purpose of the trip
was to teach the students about
underwater archeology. "Field

By now we hope everyone has heard about the new pirate statue soon to tower above the
average man and woman. Well, if you haven't, these are the facts. Former member of the Pirate
Club, Irwin Belk, recently donated a sum of money to the university foundry for the purpose
of building a statue, which will be placed in front of the Ward Sports Medicine Building.
We think this is an absolutely fantastic idea. Who wouldn't like to see our mascot, our
university's symbol of competition, glory and pride, representing the university of which we
are all so proud. Members of the committee said they hoped this was the beginning of many
statues to be erected on campus. TEC not only encourages this; we have lots of ideas too.
The Ward Sports Medicine Building is fine, but it would also be nice for students who do
not travel to that part of the campus to be able to admire a statue. A statue placed on main
campus is more practical. The bulk of ECU students spend the majority of their time on main
campus. The options are endless. A statue would be a nice addition just about anywhere on
campus, including the mall, Wright circle, or the Brewster courtyard.
But hey, why stop there? ECU is a pretty diverse campus. We are surrounded by people
representing many races, cultures, religions and beliefs. Anything representing the university,
including statues, should somehow capture that diversity. We should explore the idea of an
African American, Native American, Hispanic or female statue. Remember, there were pirates
of many nationalities and more than one gender on the sea and at ECU?
In addition to the many races and cultures we could represent, we should not forget the
people who made the university what it is today. Those who have contributed their life's work,
money and time to our university such as important professors, chancellors and students. It
would be great to see the faces of those men and women to whom we owe much of our
tradition, and whom we tend to forget about, captured in various spots around campus.
There are a lot of people, in addition to our beloved pirate, who should loom large in our
minds and on our campus. In this simple way we can keep our tradition and diversity alive.

It seems that everybody loves to

feel the stupidest excuse to make

the poverty level and go home and
beat their wives. They are the last
people with a reason to look down

I like the South. I think Virginia,
North Carolina and Louisiana are
probably the prettiest places on the
planet. And I haven't met a person
yet from New Jersey who didn't
want to get out of there and move
down here. But I don't think that
we are all better people than they
are. The only difference between
us and them is that they like to cuss
a lot. It's as if their English teachers
in grade school taught them to
use the f- word as the periods to
their sentences.
Also, the Civil War is over. And
even though it was over a hundred
and thirty-three years ago, people
down South seem to harbor
resentment about it. The West
Lincoln Fligh School mascot is a
rebel soldier. There are people
who wave the Confederate flag so
angrily, you would think they just
heard about the surrender at
ppomattox. These things are
usually associated with a
detrimental influence to the
community, and promote an
atmosphere of intolerance and
The final thought that I want

when someone makes fun of this

who are different in some way from

why I would let something such as
where you live determine who
your friends are going to be. Look
for qualities in the person; things
that set a that person aside, such as
standards and morality. Don't
judge people because they don't
sound like Hank Williams when
they talk.
Clinton's escapades no surprise
" would seem that we all
made up our minds about the
presidents character before
anyone had heard of Monica
Lewinsky. Surely no one is
surprised that President
Clinton has not remained
faithful to his wife
Europeans love to complain
about our country's puritanical
streak. Despite this reputation, we
seem to be remarkably tolerant
and open-minded about President
Clinton's infidelity. How upset can
we really be when his job approval
rating is still above 50 percent?
It would seem that we all made
up our minds about the president's
character before anyone had heard
of Monica Lewinsky. Surely no
one is surprised that President
Clinton has not remained faithful
to his wife. Twice we took the
"enlightened" position that his
personal life is not our concern,
electing him president with the
foreknowledge that he had
"caused pain in his marriage
But in President Clinton's case,
I would suggest that what is
euphemistically called the
"character issue" does matter, not
because of what it says about his
morals (we have had plenty of
effective and immoral leaders),
but because of what it
demonstrates about his judgment.
The president is not the first
politician to have problems with
the "character issue" and his
judgment. Three of the most
recent cases of men like this are
John Kennedy, Ted Kennedy, and
Gary Hart. Each of these men had
some glaring lapse of judgment
that threatened (or ended) his
career (the Bay of Pigs,
Chappaquiddick, and daring
reporters trying to catch him
cheating on his wife, respectively).
Likewise, President Clinton is
facing the current mess because of
his own decisions.
If it is true, as the president's
supporters frequently claim, that
he is one of the smartest
presidents we have ever had, it
must also be acknowledged that
he has shown appalling judgment
throughout the Lewinsky affair.
Let's run through a brief but not
comprehensive list of the errors in
judgment made by the president
this year.
First, while facing a trial for
sexual harassment, he had an affair
with a White House intern less
than half his age. Second, when
questioned under oath, he lied
about it. Third, he shook his finger
at the American public while
denying anything happened.
Fourth, he sent his cabinet out to
lie for him. Fifth, he only admitted
to the affair after eight months of
investigation had proven that he
was guilty. Sixth, after admitting
to the affair he offered a lame
apology and then attacked those
who were investigating him.
The really stunning thing
about this is that President Clinton
knew that the Republicans were
looking for an issue to nail him on.
He knew that Ken Starr was out to
get him any way that he could.
Why hand your worst enemies a
gift like this?
With this sort of track record,
why should we trust the president
to make the important decisions
the country faces today? Why-
should we think that he will make
the right decisions about Kosovo,
Iraq, or the economy?
Would the Board of Trustees
trust a chancellor to run ECU if he
had shown this sort of judgment?
For that matter, would you trust
someone like this to run your
academic department? A fast food
restaurant? Anything? Then
why would you trust him to run
the country?

your pearls of wisdom. It is,
apparently, a little known fact that a
few decades ago the government,
in its omniscience, decided that
since public mental facilities had
become places where people
warehoused and abused by
unqualified thugs, we should shut
them down and release the
patients. We set adrift victims of
violence, child abuse, rape, and
their own biochemistries, and the
result was inevitable. So, instead of
solving one problem (by say, fixing
the facilities) we simply created
And there is another group out
on the streets. They are the
dispossessed. These are the people
who, through tragedy of plain bad
luck, have simply lost everything.
And in modern industrial society, it
just isn't possible to pull up the
stakes and start over somewhere
with a mule and forty acres.
But what really disturbed me
when I considered the
aforementioned article isn't the
stupidity of government or the
crucify of chance. What really
bothers me is the callousness and
shallowness of the present
generation. The author of this
piece closed by making half-
hearted remarks suggesting the
decent citizenry join together to lift
up the dregs of society (I'm
paraphrasing a bit), but the truth is
that it is very easy to make glib
statements about something you
have no experience of.

to the Editor
MTV VP voices thanks, clarification
I I'm honored that you devoted an
entire page on me in your
"Welcome Back" issue. The
reporter, Amanda Austin, asked all
the right questions, her story was
well written, and her
characterization of my career path
since I have graduated from ECU,
in 1983, was accurate. However, I
do want to make an important
clarification. In one of the side bars,
Austin listed my favorite bands as
the Allman Brothers, the Rolling
Stones and Bob Dylan. The
question Amanda asked was, "what
were some of your favorite bands
while you were attending ECU?"
As a former editor of the cutting
edge magazine Option, former
music editor at Rolling Stone, and
current executive who develops
new music programs for MTV, it's
important to me that students don't
walk away from the article with an
inaccurate picture of my musical
tastes. Since the early '80s,
numerous artists have weaved their
way into my consciousness,
changing my life and opening my
mind in ways that Dylan and the
Stones did way back when. Some
of those artist include R.E.M
Public Enemy, Sonic Youth, Dr.
Dre, PJ Harvey, Nirvana, Liz Phair,
Beck, Radiohead and the list
continues to grow. Again, thanks
for the article.

Nearly 18,000 women, 1,000 men

Erin km an
Every year nearly 18.0(H) women
and 1,000 men are diagnosed
with a form of cancer called breast
With statistics as high as
1 out of even' 8 women
being diagnosed with this
disease, it is very impor-
tant that women and men
know the causes, symp-
toms, risk factors and detec-
tion methods of this terrible
Normally your body
cells are constantly divid-
ing and producing more

healthy. With cancer
your cells become
abnormal and begin
dividing with out
control or order.
These cells then form tissue
that isn't needed and these lumps
of extra tissue are' then called
tumors. The tumors are identified
as being either be-
nign, not cancerous, or malignant;
If breast cancer is not caught
early enough the malignant cancer
cells may enter the body through
the bloodstream and spread
throughout the body. This form
of cancer, originating in the
breast area, is called metastatic
breast cancer.
Many risk factors are associated
with breast cancer. While all
women arc at risk, women who eat
a high fat diet, smoke, are obese,
have a family history, consume
alcohol, have an early onset of
menstruation (before age 12) or
have their first child late or
choose not to have chil-
dren, are the most likely to
be diagnosed with
breast cancer.
Nearly 30 of all breast
cancer patients exhibit
these risk factors.
"It is very important to
do breast self exams said
Julie Denning, graduate
student at Health
Education. "Visual exam-
ines are important as well
in the early detection of breast
Early detection she says
is the most important fac-
tor in the diagnosis and
treatment of the disease.
Denning recommends
that a woman 20 years old or
older should perform a breast
self exam at least once a month
the week after her period and
receive a clinical breast exam by
her doctor once a year.
However, it is never to early
to begin because the more
familiar a woman is with her
breasts the more likely it is that
she will be able to notice a
change in them that may be a
symptom of breast cancer.
Symptoms of the disease
can include a discharge from the
nipple, a lump or thickening in or
near the breast area or
a change in the color or feel of the
skin on and around the breast.
Denning also points out that
if a woman finds a lump or
notices any of the symptoms
they should contact their doctor
right away, but not to panic.
"Nearly 80 of lumps
women find are not cancerous
Denning said.
What are a woman's options
once she is diagnosed with
breast cancer?
Denning said that there are
various treatments available for a
woman diagnosed with breast
cancer. One being a lumpecto-
my where the surgeon only
removes a small area of the
breasts where the lump is located.
A mastectomy may also be per-
formed. A mastectomy is the
removal of the entire breast,
which Denning explains may be
the best option for a patient with a
family history of breast cancer.
Chemotherapy and radiation ther-
apy are also treatments that
are available.
While breast cancer is the most
common type of cancer for
womenother than skin cancer)
the disease is treatable and with
early detection Denning says,
"There is a high survival rate
Nine and a half out of ten
women treated will be alive five
years later.
The best weapons a woman
has in the fight against breast can-
cer are a healthy diet and an over-
all healthy lifestyle and of course
early detection through breast
self exams.

Society advises six steps
Such changes can be seen by
putting your arms behind your head
and looking and then placing your
hands on your hips and contracting
your pectoral, or chest muscles.
Women 40 and over should have
a clinical exam and a mammogram
every year and still perform a breast
self-examination each month. A
mammogram becomes so important
at this age because the likeliness of
being diagnosed with breast cancer
is much higher in this age range. A
mammogram can be used to detect
a lump as small as a half centimeter
because an older woman's breast
tissue is less dense.

With the number of breast cancer
victims growing, it is vital for
women to perform self breast
The American Cancer Society
recommends that a woman 20-39
years old, should perform a breast
self-exam once a month and have a
clinical exam. Along with the man-
ual breast self-exam a visual breasts
exam should also be performed
each month.
To perform a visual exam stand
in front of a mirror and look for
obvious changes in the appearance
of your breasts. Changes such as:
dimpling of your skin, an inverted
nipple, any discoloration of the
breast, change in size or shape or
any form of discharge from the nip-

shoulder. Place your right arm behind your head.
2. I'sc the finger pads of your three mid-
dle fingers on your left hand to feel for
lumps or thickening. ,
j. Press firmly enough to know how your
breast feels. Ixarn what your breast feels like most of the time. A firm ridge in the lower curve of
each breast is normal.
4. Move around each breast in a set way. You can choose
cither the circle (A), the up and down (B), or the wedge (C).
Do it the same way everytimc.
5. Now examine your left breast using your right hand

6. Repeat the examination of both breasts while stand-

the standing part in the shower. Some breast changes can
be felt more easily when your skin is wet and soapy.

Strong defense shuts
out Seahawks
Stephen Schramm
The ECU women's soccer team
hosted arch-rival UNC-
Wilmington last week and came
away with an important confer-
ence victory. The Pirates were led
by their strong defense and good
team play.
ECU entered Wednesday's
game with a 1-2 conference record
while the Seahawks were winless
in the conference. Both teams
failed to capitalize on early
chances. UNC-Wilmington was
thwarted time and again by the
strong play of ECU's Jill Davis and
Chrisy Bernabe.
"I thought Chrisy Bernabe led
the way and our back line played
very well when they needed to
ECU head women's soccer coach
Neil Roberts said.
ECU finally scored when Erin
Cann knocked in a Davis lob off of
a corner.
"The goal came off of a corner
kick. We've been practicing those
a lot this year. It was crossed in the
air and I was trying to score, but it
didn't go far enough. Cann turned
around and volleyed it in and it
was a really nice goal Davis said.
ECU held off UNCW in the
second half and won 1-0.
"When we play Wilmington it
will always be a huge match.
They're a conference school, it's a
huge rivalry and it runs deeper
than a lot of people realize, as far as
recruiting in the state of North
Carolina, so it's a very big victory
for us Roberts said. "In the last
four or five matches, I think we've
been struggling to be emotionally
and mentally in the matches and I
thought we hung tough today and
played together, a lot better than
we have in the past. I'm pleased
with it
The ECU defense made the
match tight. The defense stopped
all UNCW chances throughout
the match and kept the ball on the
ECU side of the field during the
last minutes.
"I think that was the best
defensive game all year. I mean
nobody got through on anything,
we shut them down really well.
I'm very proud of our defense
"When we play Wilmington it
will always be a huge match.
They're a conference school, it's
a huge rivalry and it runs
deeper than a lot of people
realize, as far as recruiting in
the state of North Carolina, so
it's a very big victory for us.
Neil Roberts
ECU head women's soccer coach
Davis said.
� According to Roberts, the tight
game and close score are indicative
of all ECU-UNCW matches.
"I think now and forever the
game will be a one goal game, so
I'm pleased with the way we
played and handled an emotional,
competitive, meaningful confer-
ence game Roberts said. "It was
one ofthe closest things we've had
to a team victory all year

W Campus organizations are found far and wide at
(�j B ECU, but many students do not know the first
�3HB thing about how to get involved or who to
contact Worry no more about that here's the
low-down on the who, what, when and where of
the different types of organizations available to students.
Most students know about or are involved in social sororities
and fraternities, but do not know there are also service organiza-
tions like the Epsilon Sigma Alpha service sorority.
Epsilon Sigma Alpha provides services to local organizations
such as the Ronald McDonald House, the Women's Shelter, and St.
Jude's Children's Hospital. They also have fund raisers such as car
washes, bake sales and magazine sales.
"AH of the money raised goes to organizations like St.
Jude's, a children's cancer research hospital said Anna Asbell,
president of Epsilon Sigma Alpha.
Rushing takes place in the fall and spring every year and is open
to all women who are interested in joining. For more information,
women are welcome to attend the Epsilon Sigma Alpha meeting on

Campus Crusade for Christ is one of the many religious

CD Review
Faithless Street
8 out of 10
You just cannot go wrong with a
reissue CD. There is usually always
at least one positive outcome
whether it be better sound, the
recovering of lost musical parts in
songs, or the regaining of lost
songs altogether. Raleigh natives
Whiskeytown have done all of the
above with the Outpost Records
re-release of the band's critically
praised debut Faithless Street.
Named after the street in
Raleigh singersongwriter Ryan
Adams was living on while most of
the material was written, Faithless
Street now harbors nine new tracks
that were not on the first cut as
well as new artwork. But best of all,
the album was re-mastered, thus
producing better sound quality
and unleashing certain parts that
were previously omitted.
The order remains fairly
constant to that of the original with
the exception of a bonus track here
or there. Most of the newer (or
rather older non-released material)
falls at the end of the disc One odd
aspect of this re-issue is that
Adams decided to totally delete the
song "Oklahoma" from the track
listing because he claims to have
never really liked it anyway. To
compensate for this lost track the
band credits a previously unnamed
bonus track to the record titled
When Faithless Street was first
released in 1995 it was widely
praised by critics because of its
unique style of music, "alternative
country" (a mesh of country and
rock) as well as superb
songwriting on behalf of Adams.
The gems that were originally left
out from the initial release will
surely have critics staining their
pants, if you get my drift.
Adams often writes of
heartbreaks and loneliness, so the
songs on Faithless Street can be
compared to those of the early
country master of sad songs: Hank
Williams. A love for the bottle is
evident on the record with songs
such as "Drank Like a Riveif "Too
Drunk to Dream and "Tennessee
Square which is home to the
lyrics: "So I sit here alone on the
porch drinkin' whiskey in
Granddaddy's chair
The greatest difference between
the reissue and the original is that
the voice of singerfiddle player
Caitlin Cary is more prominent.
Her beautiful, sad harmonies were
left out on a great deal of the origi-
nal cuts. This was a considerably
large mistake because her
harmonies that were left out of

Band Review
Gibb Droll returns
I Caleb Rose
Assistant Editor
The Gibb Droll Band,
m despite an entirely new
JBUftM lineup, delivered a
BjP long- awaited and flaw-
'a lessry charismatic
show at the Attic last Saturday night.
Gibb used to be a regular at the Attic
and could be counted on for a show
every month or so but lately his trips
to Greenville have been sparse, the
main reason being that the band
was road weary and decided that it
was time stop.
Haphazardly, Gibb met up with a
bassist and drummer and the magic
that led him to continue his love of
delivering music to his many loyal
fans was there. The lineup shifted
completely from a foursome of gui-
tar, drums, bass guitar, and piano.
The newest incarnation of the Gibb
Droll Band is now a power trio con-
sisting of all the same elements
except piano and the actual person-
Our evening began, as they all
do, with a small crowd that are wit-
ness to the opening band. However,
me openef slated for the night was a
delightful exception. S.M.O. (which
is short for Screaming Multiple
Orgasms) traveled all the way from
Athens Ga. to play for a mere three
people in the crowd. But after the
first couple of tunes, folks began to
wander in and lend an ear.
S.M.O. had a unique style that
emitted many channels of influence.
One highlight of the set was a cover
of the Doobie BrothersWithout
Love Where Would You Be" which
they spiced up and gave a harder
rocking edge. S.M.O. were spectacu-
lar tight musicians and had a grace-
ful stage presence in that they joked
and laughed at the grim crowd.
Elements of hard rock, funk, reg-
gaeand blues were prominent in the
band's style and from the response,
they will probably be playing in
Greenville again soon.
At midnight, the Gibb Droll Band
took the stage. To many, the unfa-
miliar faces were equivalent to a

Movie Review
Ronin: more bad-asses for your buck
Ryan Kennemur

Robert De Niro. Mobster. Illiterate
man. The guy from Awakenings that
had that bigawakening. Deer Hunter.
Euro action-movie hero?
You betcha! In his new movie
Ronin, he plays Sam, a former CIA
agent who's hired by a faceless
employer to steal a suitcase containing
God only knows what.
The plot of the story is that Sam is
grouped with a team of former KGB
agents and other mercenaries that
have quit their companies due to per-
sonal politics, and together they are to
recover a suitcase for an employer that
they never meet Sam is the sole
American in the group, and he is per-
secuted by a co-worker from the very
Take my advice and don't mm with my of em. They're all bad newi
start. However, he keeps his cool and
indeed makes a fool out of anyone
willing to sharp-shoot at him.
The actual word "ronin" plays a
fairly large role in the movie, but only
if you really think about it. The "ronin"
were Japanese samurai who lost their
masters, becoming "untouchables" in
Japanese society. Some of them pros-
pered, but most became part of a grit-
ty underworld of thieves and merce-
naries who would strike out against
their former lords. The various char-
acters in the film, a motley, interna-
tional band of rogue agents, fit this
description rather well.
There are actually two more stars
in the movie. The first is the car chase
scenes. I can easily draw a parallel to
The French Connection, a movie that
revolutionized the action movie by
using cars as vehicles of mass destruc-
tion. In Ronin, cars are treated no dif-
ferently. There are three car chases, all
with their own distinctions. The main
theme of them, overall, is to destroy as
much of the surrounding city as pos-
sible. As cars drive through cafes at
top speed, the food isn't the only thing
in danger. Pedestrians are hit, as is
one very unlucky cyclist
The other star of the film is the
sound effects. I saw the movie in the
new Carmike Cinema with the speak-
ers mounted all along the wall, and it
was phenomenal. One speaker was
playing the sound of the raindrops
hitting the building in which the scene
was taking place, and another was
playing the dialogueooth at the
same volume! And the sound of gun-
shots is just so loud and in-your-face,
you can't help but jump.
All in all, Ronin is enough shooting
and espionage to satisfy every
actionadventure aficionados palate.
The entire cast is exquisite, as is the
double-cross fueled story. Do yourself
a favor. Go see it, but don't ever ask
what's in the suitcase.
Whiskeytown, continued from page 2
songs such as "Black Arrow,
Bleeding Heart" add a great deal to
the somberness of the record.
Although the new bonus tracks
are being released for the first time,
they are not totally foreign to the
Whiskeytown fans. "Desperate Ain't
Lonely" and "Lo-Fi Tennessee
Mountain Angel two real heart-
breakers, have been a staple of the
band's live shows from the early
days. Also, a handful of tunes
recorded at what the band terms
the "Baseball Park Sessions" do hap-
pen to appear on Whiskeytown's
second record and Outpost debut
Of the hundreds of songs
Adams has written in his lifetime,
no other sticks mind more so than
"Excuse Me While I Break My Own
Heart Besides during five shows,
this song was also first heard on
Strangers'Almanac. It was a rocking
heartbroken song that was tortured
in a good way by a crying pedal
steel guitar. The Faithless Street ver-
sion is the same but there is little
rock and roll in the song. Now its
pretty much pure sappy old school
country and ifs still sad as all hell.
Faithless Street, as well as all of
Whiskeytown's material, is lyrically
ingenious. Aside from this album,
the music that the band generates is
well-rounded and flexible. The band
obviously pays much homage to
Hank Sr. and Gram Parsons on
Faithless Street, whereas lately they
have been nodding at the Rolling
Stones and the Replacements.
The band is currently finishing
up a tour and then they'll return to
the studio once again to record a
new album. Recording is set to start
sometime in or after November and
a release date is not really pre-
dictable, but is should be well worth
waiting for.

Fall break adventures
Christopher Salerno
Staff Writer
Yet another Fall Break is upon us.
From October 16th through the
20th, students will depart from
academia, free from the binds of
studying and schoolwork. So what
to do on this fall break? Where to go
to unwind?
The choices seem endless. You
could go patch up that long-distance
relationship and indulge in mom's
home cooking back home. You might
just relax in G-town with the locals,
or actually start doing some work
this semester. Sure, you could do
any number of things that require
low energy, or you could have an
outdoor adventure! Yes, go jump in a
lake. Take a hike. Listen for trees
falling in the woods.
For the lucky students who keep
in touch with the Student Rec Center
on campus, heading back to nature
is on tab for the two planned trips
offered for fall break this year. The
two trips are to Cumberland Island,
Georgia, for sea kayaking, or to
Shenandoah National Park for hik-
ing and backpacking.
At Cumberland Island, the group
will sharpen their sea-kayak skills
while exploring a part of the
AtlanticCarolinian Biosphere
Reserve. If you love lots of sun and
water, you'd be right at home on a
trip like this one. The
group plans to paddle approximately
20 miles in and around Cumberland
Island, exploring its beaches and
Another group of students with
the outdoor bug are heading to
Shenandoah National Park. Here
they will enjoy 4 days of hiking and
backpacking in Virginia's Blue Ridge
Mountains. Shenandoah is located
near Charlottesville which is famous
for its breathtaking scenery and
truly engaging hiking trails that
include waterfalls, riffs and the
thriving wildlife inhabiting the area.
Among students not involved
with the Rec Center's organized
adventure trips, the popular "high
energy" plan seems to be camping
and hiking with friends, at other
places of interest
One of the places is Ocracoke, on
the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
Junior Sara Ross visits the area often
and finds it to be her favorite camp-
ing getaway on the Outer Banks.
"Ifs a remote and beautiful area
said Ross. "The many different kinds
of birds and the wild ponies really
add to the natural experience. Plus,
it's a pretty cheap little vacation
The quaint village of Ocracoke, on
the island's southern soundside, has
an interesting history including the
1823 Ocracoke Lighthouse. There are
dozens of wonderful shops that add
to the island's historic attractions.
Also, many self-guided trails for
hiking wind around the island.
Among those who missed the
sign-up for the Shenandoah trip and
still plan on camping in the moun-
tains. Western North Carolina
appears to be the spot.

It is here that we meet Dr.
Strangefove, who only has a small
role. He is a former Nazi now work-
ing for the Americans in designing
weapons. It seems his only purpose
in the movie is to describe what the
Russian Doomsday Machine is, and
to explain why dropping a few
bombs on Russia would result in the
Earth's annihilation.
Wfe're also introduced to the
character that makes this movie a
must-see for any fan of film. His
name is General "Bucky" Turlington,
played perfectly by George C Scott I
grew up hearing how wonderful an
actor Scott is, but until now did not
necessarily accept the opinion.
However, after seeing him in this role
that he did in his younger years, I am
duly impressed.
He played the comedic military
General of the Cold War perfectly. He
was the most amusing military char-
acter I have ever seen, and makes a
movie that is sometimes dreary
worth seeing for his character alone.
Peter SeDers does have a few comedic
moments of his own while locked in
Ripper's office, but he is outshone
throughout by Scott.
One of the best scenes in the film
is when the American President has
to explain over the phone to the
Russian Premier, who is drunk, that
our bombers are coming and we
cannot stop them. When Captain
Mandrake finally does get the code
and cancel the strike, one of our
bombers, upon which James Earl
Jones plays a small part, does not
receive the message due to damage.
At the end of the movie, her captain
rides the bomb down to its target,
and the explosion sets off the
Russian Doomsday Machine.
I was duly impressed with the
film, especially with George C. Scott.

Rosie Nelson is dead again and she's
sick of it.
Her daughter, Donna Lappert,
received a familiar call Monday
from the bookkeeping department
at the bank where Nelson deposits
her Social Security check.
The U.S. Treasury, relying on false
information that Nelson is dead, had
asked the bank to return her Social
Security money for the third time in
four months.
Social Security officials told Nelson
on June 21 that she was dead. She
showed up in person to prove other-
wise and her benefits were restored.
Eight days later, Social Security
killed her again. The problem was
fixed, only for Nelson, 64, to be killed
off a third time.
"I don't know if I'm not easy to kill
she said. "Or maybe it's that I just
refuse to die
Cathy Noe, a spokeswoman for the
Social Security Administration, said
she was looking into the problem.
Nelson is exhausted from battling
with federal bureaucrats.
"I can't take it no more she said.
"I'm just sitting here boo-hooing

stun gun due to the fact that it never
seemed like the previous band
would ever part
Nevertheless, Gibb proved the
non-believers wrong when he
opened with Mexico, a non-album
cut that has become a staple of the
live set The new members delivered
the same karma as before but the
absence of a piano was taking its
The band then proved that they ,
still had the blues by throwing in a
cover of Freddie King's "Have you
Ever Loved a Woman?" This slow,
sad blues number is about a guy in
love with a woman he can't have
because she belongs to his best
friend. It's impossible to explain how
much feeling Gibb Droll put into
this song but if music can cry, it
cried that night during this song.
The theme of the night was "new
band" so likewise there was new
material. The newer material was
written for the power trio format
and encompasses a hard-rocking
edge. The solos are shorter and there
is less jamming, however the music
is still 100 percent heart and soul,
one thing Gibb has always had. �
And so the band played on,
delivering a mix of songs from their
two albums Dharma and Narrow
Mouth Jar. Of these, the crowd
favorites seemed to be "I'm Cryin
from Dharma and "Tune" which
was the release off Narrow Mouth
After an hour and a half of
straight music the band said good-
night to the Attic. But the yelling,
screaming and bottle hammering
were too much for the band so they
courteously re-took the stage and
delivered a three- song encore
including a cover of the Meters funk
classic "Cissy Strut
The Gibb Droll Band has record-
ed a new album that is set for an
early November release. It will sup-
posedly contain the unreleased live
material that has been heard at
many of the past shows, as well as
songs that were heard for the first
time last Saturday. Overall the band
seemed overly joyous about their
situation and are eager to continue
blessing audiences across the nation
with their sweet sounds.
