Several open forums were held
across campus last week to allow
faculty, students, and staff the
opportunity to aid the Strategic
Planning Committee in creating a
mission statement for ECU 2000-
2005.
The Strategic Planning
Committee is in the preliminary
process of developing ECU's goals
for the new millinea. They provide
budget and space planning for
the campus and are currently col-
lecting feedback through the
open forums and three campus
surveys.

ECU is ottering telephone registration,
starting November 9 for spring 1999 as an
alternative to going to a terminal to regis-
ter for classes.
Telcphojic-registration will prove most
beneficial to students that live off campus
including non-degree students and stu-
dents who live fa away. �
The first time ECU had telephone reg-
istration available was a test run during
Spring 1998. The lines were opened at 10
am. The testing went well and students
this semester will be able to access the ser-
vice at 8 am this registration period.
So far there have been no complaints
and no glitches to deal with.
"Telephone registration is a good ser-
vice said Amy Bissete, assistant registrar,
"because you can check your grades, hous-
ing status, financial aid application status,
admission status, holding tags and more
Although you do not have to stand in
lines to use automated Voice Response
System (AYRS), the actual registration
process takes a little longer.
"If vou organize all of your informa-
tion said Bissette, " it can take you under
three minutes, where as if you use a termi-
nal it takes onlv about thirty seconds

ECU is one of the last schools in the
UNC system to receive the service. The
service was not made available to ECl' stu-
dents before because there were enough
terminals to do the job efficiently. ECU
has it now because it was mandated by the
board of trustees.
The telephone registration lines will
open November 9 at 8 am. This will be an
ongoing service until 9 p.m. each night.

ECU will be expanding its Community
College Partnership degree program to
include online distance learning sites in
Dare and Paimico Counties.
Communications, management, office
and computer skills are all taught through
the Information ProcessingAdministration
Services (ASIP). The I Iniversity of North
Carolina General Administration has given
the program complete approval to award a
Bachelor of Science in Business Education
(BSBE) degree.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for
non-traditional students who have families
and live a good distance away from ECl' to
obtain a two year degree in conjunction
with the university said Dr. Ivan Wallace,
chair of ECU Department of Business,
Vocational and Tech. Education.
Beginning in January, for the first time,
courses will be taught at the College of the
Albemarlc Dare County Campus and at
Paimico Community College in
Grantsborro. Since 1996, Carterct
Community College in Morchead City and
Graven Community College in New Bern

�STAFF WRITER
Internationally recognized human rights
activist and 1996 Nobel Peace Prize winner
Jose Ramos-Horta will deliver Phi Kappa
Phi's 1998 lecture tonight at 7:30 in
Hendrix Theater.
According to Lorraine Robinson, Phi
Kappa Phi public relations officer and lec-
turer with the ECU Department of
English, Ramos-Horta has been a consul-
tant for nonviolence for over the past two
decades since his homeland of East Timor
was overrun by Indonesia in 1975.
"It would be like a much larger nation
overrunning a much smaller one without
any provocation Robinson said.
Ramos-Horta, an East Timorese exile,
has spoken before the U.N. Security
Council and the European Parliament as
well as having addressed many other inter-
national organizations.
Ramos-Horta has been a heavy influ-
ence on the budding Timorese nationalism
movement. He served as the U.N. repre-
sentative for FRETILIN, a Timorese
national movement which works toward
nonviolent solutions.
"To respond in a measured, thoughtful
nonviolent thing is pretty remarkable con-
sidering the history of what has transpired
said Robinson.
In 1989 Ramos-Horta founded the
Diplomacy Training Program in New
South Wales Australia. DTP's aim is to
train natives, minorities and human rights
activists of the Asia Pacific area in the U.N.
human rights system.
Ramos-Horta and Bishop Carlos Filipe
Ximenes Belo, also an East Timorese
native, were awarded the Nobel Peace

Now the Special Representative of the
National Council of Maubre Resistance, a
pro-independence movement organization,
Ramos-Horta's experiences are described
in the book Eunu: The Unfinished Saga of
East Timor.
"This furthers the academic climate at
ECU and in the region said Robinson.
According to Robinson. Ramos-Horta
was selected by the Phi Kappa Phi
Committee because of his dedication to the
enhancement of academics in all disci-
plines as well as his international statute
that fulfills the mission of Phi Kappa Phi.
The lecture, entitled "Peacemaking:
The Power of Nonviolence" is free and
open to the public. A reception in the

ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
Members of the Friends of Joyner
Library are working to start a
Student Friends of Joyner Library
organization.
Friends of Joyner Library was
founded in 1978 in attempt to pro-
mote and create an aggressive
image of support for the Academic
Library Services. Twenty years
later, the Friends have reached a
new level of membership with over
230 members currently involved in
the organization.
Members of the organization
recently decided to produce a new
organization called the Student
Friends OfJoyner Library, because
of the overwhelming support of the
original chapter. Friends of Joyner
Library hope the two organizations
will be able to work to find better
ways to serve the library's needs.
Advisor of Student Friends,
Peter McCraken created and began
organizing the group believes that
Student Friends will greatly help
students in the academic areas.
"Many students have no idea
how many unique events take
place in our library said
McCraken. "Student Friends is a
chance for students to learn just
what Joyner Library has to offer
Members of Friends and
Student Friends are given privi-
leges including invitations to ban-
quets hosted by guest speakers
such as one recently given by the
president of America On-Line,
along with many famous writers,
and journalists which also come to
the area.
Friends of Joyner Library also
hopes to cosponsor many events
with the Student Friends which
will be taking place in the near
future. Events such as the 1999
Celebrity Readers Theater held in
late January or early February are
among some of the events the two
groups plan to work together on.
Director of Friends, Carroll
Varner, is one of the members hop-
ing to see the two groups flourish
together.
"I hope to continue to see the
libraries fine tradition of exception-
al services by members of both
organizations said Varner.
"Together, we can do much to
enhance teaching, learning, and
scholarship, while embarking on
many new paths which will
enhance the libraries role on cam-
pus and in the community. Our
goal is to create the most efficient
and effective library services

will participate in class by using
computers and Internet technolo-

"The forums arc to gather per-

and staff said Sandy Pravica, also
in planning research.
Although the forums were open
to the campus, attendance was low.
However, Thompson stated that
through the surveys the commit-
tees will reach hundreds of people
on campus. This year the surveys
include a national survey for facul-
ty, which can be compared to
national norms, and two others, one
for students and one for staff.
The topics of the forum were
varied from the improvement of
interdisciplinary learning to trans-

cussed in the forums, which were
held all week, will be used in the
early stages of planning the goals
that will be instituted for ECU in
the year 2000.

Sometimes it seems like the voices of students go unheard by our administration.
Upperclassmen often feel that it's not really worth the trouble to take a stand on an issue.
When we express frustrations with sub-par conditions in our classrooms and on campus, our
opinions are the last to be considered.
When we complain about the inefficiencies and unfair ticketing policies by Parking and
Transit Services, we're ignored. When we suggest that money for more parking places would
be well-spent, we get useless surface building improvements.
When TEC inquired about the intolerably hot Brewster classrooms in mid-June, we were
brushed off with the excuse of "computer programming error
Not even the SGA, our elected leaders, can do much to reduce the list of things that drive us
crazy every day. But at least students have one more hope: their own teachers.
The teacher forums give professors, teachers, graduate assistants and ECU staff a chance to
speak out to the administration on how they feel about anything at ECU that bothers them.
This will be a good thing for students, especially if the forums raise questions about issues
we've already been championing for years. The administration may perceive an individual
student with a valid concern as just another kid with a problem, but there will be no denying
the credibility a respected teacher could lend by addressing the same issue.
Odd as it seems, the administration is more likely to listen to teachers, whom they pay, than
students, who pay them. But we're all humans, and we all want to feel safe and comfortable
in our environments, whether we're working or learning.
From poor lighting at night to bad parking to uncomfortable temperatures in the classrooms,
teachers experience the same frustrations with the ECU campus as students.
TEC encourages teachers, especially graduate assistants who recently spent four years here
as students with little influence, to attend the forums and speak out for improved quality of
facilities for everybody.
OPINION

Tobacco, gun issue not the same
Guns, if used as intended, can
kill, but there are are also
other legitimate purposes to
own a gun, like hunting. These
other legitimate purposes are
what draws a fine line between
the tobacco and gun issue.
In order to be compensated for city
expenses related to gun violence,
New Orleans has filed a multi-
million dollar lawsuit against 15
gun manufacturers, three trade
associations, and other various gun
dealers. The city contends that in
order to reduce crime, police
budgets must increase and the city
should not have to bear this
financial burden alone.
Basically, the basis of the city's
suit is that a gun manufacturer or
dealer should be held liable for its
products' consequences. This
argument is absolutely ridiculous
for one practical reason, how can
any industry be held responsible
for an individual's use of their
product? It doesn't make sense.
This would be like suing the beef
industry because of the correlation
between consuming red meat and
heart disease. It is the consumer's
responsibility, not the producers, to
ensure proper use of any given
product.
This lawsuit, though akin to the
tobacco suits, is different.
Cigarettes are deadly if used as
intended (whether or not this
means that people can sue cigarette
manufacturers is a different issue
entirely.) Guns, if used as intended,
can kill, but there are are also other
legitimate putposes to own a gun,
like hunting. These other
legitimate purposes are what draws
a fine line between the tobacco and
gun issue.
Admittedly, guns are dangerous
and deadly, but who doesn't know-
that? It's not as if the facts that
guns kill is some new discovery.
OPINION
Columnist
It's common sense, and likewise
guns should be used with common
sense.
New Orleans is just playing the
blame game. Passing the buck to
gun manufacturers is not going to
prevent crime, it just helps the city
pay for their police force. It is
understandable that New Orleans
is frustrated with their high crime
rates, but they are pointing the
finger in the wrong direction. This
is just another instance where
individual accountablitiy is thrown
out the window. Why is it the gun
manufacturers' fault when a killing
occurs, and not the person who
actually pulled that trigger. It
doesn't take a genius to see the
ever-abundant holes and flawed
reasoning in this case.
Even the people who are anti-
guns, anti-war and anti-hunting
should clearly see the hotrible
precedent it would set if New
Orleans actually wins this absurd
case. It would propagate a mass
influx of class-action lawsuits
against a wide range of companies
for even more ludicrous
complaints. First it was the tobacco
industry, now it's the firearm
industrv. What is next?

A lot, apparently. The other day

consisted of

10 minutes longer that it should

Who's to say what's boring and what

I am. If you want to know if you
are boring, look at your hobbies.
Actually, your hobbies will only be

as well. We can have Madonna as
the director of Planned Parenthood
and 'Ol Dirty Bastard as the head
of The Red Cross. Well
heckDale Earnhardt for
President!
What is happening to us? Are
we so in need of entertainment
that we would let less qualified
entertainers serve over better
candidates because of their
entertainment value? Pot smoking
dissident Sonny Bono proved to be
as ineffectual and cowardly in
Congress as he was with Cher
when she would smack him
around. Would Jesse be different?
Probably not.
As a sole Libertarian in a state
legislature divided equally among
Republicans and Democrats, it's
unlikely that "The Body" will be
able to convince them to pass any
of his legislation. He favors
abortion, gay marriages and has �
even said that he would consider
legalizing prostitution. I doubt
that the predominantly Lutheran
conservative constituents of
Minnesota would allow these
things to happen.
So it appears that we have
another governor that is
predestined to fail. I think that if
the people would have spent more
time listening to the issues, and
less time listening to the hype,
they would have made a better
decision. But now the American
political system is an even bigger
joke than 1 imagined. I never
thought I'd see the day when
watching C-Span is better than
watching Springer.
LLETTER
to the Editor
Private schools promote own agendas
This is a rebuttal statement for the
opinion column written by Britt
Honeycutt in the Oct. 29 issue.
I find it abhorrent that
Honeycutt has the conception that
the purpose of private religious
colleges is to teach acceptance for
all. A private religious college's
purpose is in fact the complete
opposite.
Honeycutt states "there is a
slight hypocrisy in the views of
these colleges. They preach love,
but only for those who fit into their
ideal This is not hypocrisy, it is
their sole purpose. Private
religious colleges are forthright
with their purpose to teach their
separatist ideals.
Honeycutt feels that educated
people do not hate. I propose the
contrary is the truth. All
individuals are educated in one
aspect or another. If her feelings
were true, there would not be any
racism, and there definitely would
not be any college-educated
racists. Since there is racism, and
there are college-educated racists,
her argument that educated people
do not hate is irrational.
Everybody has boundaries. You
have a misconception that gays
experience love with no
boundaries. This idea is false.
Homosexual individuals have the
same emotions as any other
individual. Homosexual
individuals experience hate and
love the same as other individuals.
Simplifying their point of view and
putting their lifestyle on a pedestal
only serves to separate them
further from the rest of society.

SkinCancer
prevention starts in college
Skin cancer prevention for both males and females should'begin during college years
Piiii.i.ii' Gili i.
I I I W H ! I K H
When the topic of skin cancer is
brought up, most people think about
the sun. In the warmer months of the
year, ECU students will flock to the
beach on weekends. But since the
weather has cooled, there is no reason to
worry about contracting skin cancer,
especially at our age, right? Wrong.
A ccor din g
to the
American
C a n c e r
Society, there
will be a pro-
jected 15,000
cases of highly
curable skin
cancers in
North Carolina
and one million in the nation in the next
year. The deadliest type of skin cancer,
melanoma, will be diagnosed to 845
North Carolinians and to 41,600 people
nationally.
"By the year 2000, one out of fifteen
Americans will have melanoma said
Maxinc Edwards of the Leo Jenkins
Cancer Center.
The theory of what causes skin can-
cer is ultraviolet rays. Exposure to these

rays that axe emitted from the sun can
damage UNA and cause tumors to
appear. Even minimal
exposure can cause
melanoma. A small percent-
age of people are born with
xeroderma pigmentosum
(XP), a rare condition that
slows DA from repairing
sun-damaged areas of the
skin. These people contract
melanoma easily. Moles are
also highly connected to
melanoma.
"Everyone should per-
form a self-exam-
ine every six to
eight weeks on
themselves
Edwards said.
"They should
check all moles in
the front and back
of their body
There is a
method of examin-
ing moles called the ABCD
rule. This is an acronym for
the steps in making sure a
mole is not changing or
growing in a way which
would indicate melanoma.
Asymmetry, Border, Color
and Diameter are all details to check on
a mole. Any sudden or dramatic increase
in size means that one should consult
his or her physician or a dermatologist

should avoid and protect themselves
from ultraviolet exposure, Anyone who
received a sunburn at a
very early age is at risk as

Americans do

"Skin cancer has the most
common malignancy said
Mary Matthcis. area projects
director, of the American
Cancer Society in Greenville.
If someone is biopsied and
diagnosed as having skin can-
cer, there are many options.
The majority of such cancers
are benign, but if they turn
malignant, surgical removal is
the first step. The bigger the
tumor means the bigger the
incision that will be made dur-
ing surgery. It is also usually
necessary to remove a lymph
node so it can be checked as to
whether or not the cancer is
spreading. Chemotherapy is also used
for cancer sufferers.
After the cancer is removed and
thought to be cured, follow-up exami-

nations are needed to see if the cancer
has reoccurred. This will include exam-
ination of skin and lymph nodes and
possibly other examinations including
chest x-rays. Also, a person who has pre-
viously had melanoma may still be at
risk for contracting it again. It is neces-
sary for patients who are cured of
melanoma to examine their skin every
month and avoid overexposure to the
sun.
'The Loo Jenkins Cancer Center,
located in the ECU Medical School, has
a skin cancer support group called
"Made in the Shade 'This group has
open discussions and educational meet-
ings. People who have suffered or are
currently suffering from all types of skin
cancer can attend its meetings.

STAFF RITBR
Infertility is a problem faced by
many couples, and outside help is
in need if they wish to conceive.
'That is why egg and sperm dona-
tions are needed across the world.
But this process is not as easy as
one would think.
Before guys starr driving to the
nearest fertility clinic to make a
"donation there are many
recniirements they must meet.
Couples looking for a sperm donor
are very particular about the per-
son they choose. The form that is
filled out by the prospective par-
ents contains preferences about
appearance, education and per-
sonality. Such things considered
are hair and eye color, height,
build, weight, complexion and
nationality. One form from
OPTIONS, a fertility group, asks
potential sperm donors about their
beauty.
"I tried donating once when I
lived in California said one male
business major. "But they said my
sperm count was average. They try
to get guys who have a super-
sperm count
Only three to five percent of
applicant donors are actually
allowed to donate. In order to
donate, a man must be 18-38 years
of age and have a medical history
that does not include inheritable
diseases, sexually transmitted dis-
eases, current infection, cancer or
substance abuse. A college educa-
tion is usually helpful if a man
wishes to donate his sperm; it
makes him a more attractive
donor.
A sperm donor who is accepted
by a fertility clinic is paid $35 to
$50 for donating. The sperm that
is donated is usually then cryo-
gcnically frozen. The infertile
woman, who is taking fertility
drugs, then inserts the frozen
sperm into herself and waits to see
if the procedure was successful.
"Every woman creates hun-
dreds of eggs that she will never
use in her lifetime according to

the University Fertility Center of
Memphis, Tenn.
'The first egg donations began
in the early '80s. The first success-
ful ovum donation was reported in
Australia in 1984, though the preg-
nancy did not go to term. The first
baby born because of egg donation
happened in 1986 through invetro-
fcrtilization.
A woman has to go through the
same very selective process as the
male, if not more so. If she wishes
to donate her eggs, she must be 21
to 35 years old, should not be using
"Norplant" or taking injections of
"Depo Provcra" for birth control,

healthy, normal child.
A woman produces one to two
eggs during each monthly ovula-
tion cycle. If a woman is actually
selected for the donation process,
she is given drugs that allow her to
"supcr-ovulate she will be able
to produce sometimes up to 15
eggs per cycle.
The donor is able to receive
information on the client family
that have selected her eggs. She
has the right, in some programs, to
approve or disapprove the family
that will be receiving her eggs.
The woman also goes through a
major legal process; she must
choose if. she will have a open,
semi-open or closed relationship
with the client couple and the
child.
The egg donation process usu-
ally takes a 20 day time period
completely. She will have to take
daily injections for two to three
weeks and will have to be exam-
ined by a fertility doctor for ten
visits. When the day of donation
arrives, minor surgery is performed
to remove the eggs. This surgery
takes 20 to 40 minutes, and the
woman is given an epidural or an
intravenous anesthesia which pre-
vents any discomfort
Normal compensation for an
egg donor is $2,500 to $5,000.
They are paid per egg retrieval,
not per egg.
Though the money may attract
many people to donate, there are
also many moral decisions that
have to be made about a donor's
connection to the child.

Thank you to those of you who have sent me e-mail with questions and
comments.
' I thought you may be interested in schooling over here (that is what
I came for). The system the English use requires a lot of discipline.
English students go to classes for very few hours. Each history course I
am taking has a one hour lecture and a one hour seminar each, for a total
of eight hours a week in class. This sounds easy, but we are required to
do much more work outside class. For this semester, I'll be writing eight
research papers - each of which cannot be done at the last minute.
Everyone had always told mc that the English food was bad. I refused
to believe this warning, until I got here. English food is not exactly bad�
it just doesn't have much flavor. Most of everything that is "traditional-
ly English food" is quite bland and is often deep fried. And beans, there
are beans with, on or in everything, which would be very good, that is, if
I liked beans.
There are also certain quirks in the language which I find interesting.
A sample conversation goes as follows:
"Alright"
"Alright. Are you better, then?"1'
"No, still quite knackered
"Are you still going to go out and get pissed tonight?"
"Yes, we'll go back to the Loaded Dog again Here have some
crisps
"Cheers
Last week I took a trip to London for some good old fashioned
touristin! In London I felt more at home. All around you when you walk
around the city, you see American tourists being obnoxious and a gener-
al nuisance�just like home.
London is an immense place that is fascinatingly clean and safe. The
Underground, London's subway system, has impeccably clean cars and
I saw no vagrants riding within. The
parks were beautiful and welcoming,
even at dusk. The streets are staffed
with cleaners to eliminate litter.
London makes New York look like
Hell.
During the trip I visited the regu-
lar attractions and took in a play, Les
Miserables, at the Palace Theatre. The highlight, however, was a lesser
known attraction called the London Dungeon. It was a dark and hilari-
ous journey through torture devices, execution methods and an exhibi-
tion on Jack the Ripper. It takes a sick person to enjoy this.
London is a great city, but I wouldn't want to live here. Like the rest
of England, it's cold and rainy. In addition it's an expensive town, espe-
cially for Americans (things cost twice as much). I also couldn't stand the
number of tourists that arc everywhere. It would be terrible to live
among them. Now though, I'm in Leicester wishing I could go back. Oh
well.
Cheers,
Blake Norman

E(�U's 24-21 victory over Cincinnati
last Thursday night has created a log
jaijn in the Conference USA stand-
ings.
ffhe Pirates are among four
tedjtns tied for third in the confer-
ence at Z-Z. Saturday's home game
agfinst Louisville will go a long way
in tlcciding conference standings as
well as possible post season bowl
berths. Both teams enter the game
at 6-4 with two games remaining.
The C-USA champion will play
in the Liberty Bowl on Dec. 31.
Tulane sits atop the conference at 4-
0 with games against Army and
Houston remaining. A win in either
of those two games would assure
Tulane the Liberty Bowl spot.
A second C-USA team, though
not necessarily the second place
team, will play in the Humanitarian
Bowl against the Big West
Champion on Dec. 30.
Senior noseguard Travis Darden
says the team isn't thinking about a
bowl; the players just want to finish
their season on a strong note.
"What we're thinking now is to
win the last two Darden said.
"Whatever happens, happens, but
all we can control is the wins and
losses of the last two games
The Halloween loss to Houston
hurt ECU's bowl chances, but head
coach Steve Logan said his team
can't worry about possible bowl sce-
narios.
"The Houston game was obvi-
ously a rough deal Logan said.
"But I told the players, we can be 5-
6, 6-5, or 7-4; what do you want to
be? Let's go win them. They're
going to be tough, but we've got two
games we can win or two games we
can lose. It depends on how we
respond
, In addition to the two C-USA
guaranteed spots, there are At-Large
berths available in several bowl
games. These include the Las Vegas
Bowl on Dec. 19, the Motor City
Bowl on Dec. 23, and the Music
City Bowl to be held in Nashville on
Dec. 29.
ECU's chances of post season
play may be aided because several
conferences, most notably the Big
Ten, may not have enough bowl eli-
gible teams to fill their allotted
spots. For example, the Sunshine
Classic (the former CarQuest Bowl)
will pit the fourth place ACC team
(currently N.C. State) against the
sixth place Big Ten team. To be eli-
gible for a bowl, schools must have
at least six wins against Division 1-A
teams. As it stands now, the Big Ten
only has five teams bowl-eligible.
Freshman runningback Leonard
Henry says that while the team isn't
focusing on a bowl now, they
deserve a look if they win out.
"I don't know what the situation
is right now Henry said. "If we fin-
ish up 7-4,1 think we'll have a legit-
imate chance to go to some bowl

The No. 6 seed ECU women's soc-
cer team ended its season with a 1-
0 loss to No. 3 George Mason in the
qijarterfinals of the 1998 Colonial
Athletic Association Women's
Soccer Championships at the
Virginia Beach SportsPlcx on
Thursday. The Pirates finished the
yqar at 10-7-1 and 3-5 in the. CAA,
their first ever winning season.
George Mason advanced to the
selmifinals on Friday, where they
lost against No. 2 seed William 6k
Mary, 2-0, to finish their season
with a overall record of 12-8-1. The
College of William & Mary defeat-

and an automatic bid into the
NCAA tournament.

Pagliarulo stopped an Erin Cann

range while Shana Woodward
launched a shot over the crossbar

minutes later. A defender save on
the goal line thwarted arfottier ECU
opportunity in the 36th minute.
"I was very disappointed that I
couldn't hit one of my chances. I
just got really nervous when I was
about to score and that's probably
what made the difference between
me and Jennifer Jones) today said
sophomore Cann, who, along with
Kim Sandhoff and Dana Durbin,
was named to the All-CAA second
team by a vote of league coaches
last Wednesday.
The Patriots got on the board in
the 62nd minute with a goal by
senior forward Jennifer Jones. The
play materialized when Stephanie
Hancock advanced a pass down the
left wing to sophomore Andrea
Matthews who forwarded the ball
to Jones who scored on a 8-yard
blast past ECU keeper Amy Horton
into the far right corner. The goal
would stand as the lone score of the
game for the Patriots.
"What can I say; they put the

Jason I.atoir

The ECU Volleyball team had an
up and down weekend as the
Pirates split weekend home match-
es against Colonaial Athletic-
Association foes American and
George Mason. The Pirares came
out flat against regionally ranked
American on Friday, losing to the
Eagles 0-3, but managed to turn it
all around by rallying for a 3-2 win
over the George Mason Patriots on
Saturday. As a result the Pirates
moved into a tie for fourth place
with GMU in the CAA with only
one match remaining in the regular
season.
While American scored the first
lOtpoints of the first game, ECU
continued to struggle, losing the
game 15-3. In the second game the
Pirates put up a tougher fight
before eventually losing the game
15-5, despite outblocking the
Eagles 4-1. In the third game the
Pirates continued their terrific
defense but struggled heavily on
offense, as the Eagles took a .319 to
.021 hitting advantage, eventually
winning 15-9. t.
"American is the team to beat in
the CAA and it showed (Friday)
ECU head coach Kim Walkers
said. " They have three seniors
who really lead the team and who
are terrific hitters.But we blocked
extremely well against them. We
played hard and the effort was
shown by all of our players
Liz Hall lead ECU with seven
kills, while Clinta Claro pitched in,
adding five kills and 10 digs.
Lucinda Mason, who is chasing the
single season team record for
blocks (set by her sister Lakeya last
season at 124) also recordes three
kills and a team high siblocks.
Ajola Berisha and Heather
Wintermcycr paced the Eagles
with recorded 11 kills each.
On Saturday the Pirates turned
it all around against GMU, winning
a tough match "S-Z. ECU came out
solid on all fronts in the first game
fighting back from deficits of 8-4
and 14-10 before losing 17-15. In
the second game the Pirates came
back blasting GMU 15-8. The
strong play carried over as they
pounded out the last seven points
to down the Patriots 15-11 in the
third game. However, GMU rallied
in the fourth winning 17-15, after a
controversial call gave them a 16-15
lead. The Pirates, however,
showed tremendous fortitude by
coming out blazing in the fifth and
final game, crushing GMU by a
score of 15-6.

Kalajo lone representative
Pirate tennis competes
at Rolex championship
Todd Tallmadce
SENIOR WRITER
Roope Kalajo was the lone repre-
sentative for EXU men's tennis
team on Friday, Nov. 6, when he
played in the first round of the ITA
Region II indoor Championships
hosted by UNC-Chapel Hill.
'He competed against the no. 3
seed Dmitry Muzyka from Duke
in the first round. He was able to
pull off a major victory for ECU by
defeating Muzyka 7-5, 6-7(1), 6-3.
"Roope (Kalajo) played the best
I have ever seen him play today
ECU head coach Tom Morris said.
"He got stronger as the match went
on, and it was a great win against a
nationally-ranked player
Muzyka is ranked No. 98 on the
Division I Men's Singles Preseason
ITA Rankings. And Duke is
ranked No. 15 in the nation.
On Saturday, Kalajo played
against Benjamin Cassaigne from
Georgia Tech in the main singles
64-player draw. Kalajo was not able
to hold off Cassaigne, who was
seeded in the top eight in the tour-
nament, and lost the match 6-1, 6-
2.
"The match was a lot closer
than the score shows Morris said.
"Roope (Kalajo) could not catch a
break and Cassaigne just did not
miss. Nevertheless, his good per-
formance should give him a lot of
confidence going into the spring
season -
Kalajo had surgery on his ankle
as a sophomore and had problems
with his Achilles tendon his junior
year. After struggling with these
injuries, he impressed not only his
coach, but also himself during the
tournament.
"I played with confidence and I
am pretty pleased with the results
after being injured the last couple
of years Kalajo said. "This was
the best tournament I had played
this fall This tournament ended
the fall schedule for the ECU
men's and women's tennis teams.
The teams will continue to condi-
tion over the" winter, with the
spring schedule set to start in early
February.

"This was an awesome match to

to play in said Walker. " We got
better as the match went on. Our
blocking was outstanding again.
And to have three players reach
triple-doubles; I have never been
involved with anything like that on
any level. It's amazing and a tribute
to their abilities
Setter Lisa Donovan also
reached a personal milestone in the
match by recording her 1,000th
assist of her career. Donovan is now
fifth on the all-time ECU assist
charts and trails fourth place by
only 105 assists.
The Pirates will be in action
again today, as the team travels to
Wilmington to face in-state CAA
rival UNC Wilmington in their last
match of the regular season.
ECU head coach Neil Roberts said.
"Both teams played hard and
aggressive. Our team played a
super game, probably our .best
game of the year. I was pleased
with our level of play in a game that
was tough to lose. We gave it every-
thing, but we weren't, able to take
advantage of our opportunities
With the loss, ECU finishes a
very challenging and successful
1998 women's soccer season.
"I'm very proud of the way we
played this season. We just had
some unfortunate games we would
have deserved to win and today's
game might be one of them Cann

7 million women, 9 in 10, suffer from eating disorders

POC( S WRITER
Today 7 million women suffer from
anorexia nervosa and bulimia.
Nine in ten women with an eating
disorder say the problem began
before they were 20. �
� These shocking statistics are a
Symptoms of
disorders vary
result of society's obsession with
weight, shape and appearance,
. according to Dr. Elke D. Eckert,
author of Anorexia Nervosa and
Bulimia. Society's demand for the
"perfect image" is what pushes the
majority of women to develop an
eating disorder, experts say.
According to Eckert, girls are
more concerned about their weight
than boys are. Fifty-three percent
of 20-year-old women feel they are
fat, according to researchers, while
only 9 percent of 20-year-old men
feel they are overweight.
Researcher Susan M. Ice, med-
ical director of the Eating
Disorders Unit at Bclmont Center
for Comprehensive Treatment,
explained in her study that eating
disorders are not so much an ill-
ness, but an aberration in female
development. Effective treatment
is achieved through an understand-
ing of female behavior and of
women and relationships.
Experts say that typically an eat-
ing disorder begins innocently. A
young girl goes on a simple diet,
but before long the diet is out of
control. Soon the girl has a severe
eating disorder. The two most com-
mon eating disorders are anorexia
nervosa and bulimia.
Anorexia nervosa is a syndrome
that causes someone to refuse to
eat and maintain body weight.
Many sufferers weigh less than 85
percent of what is normal for their
ages and heights. To lose weight
the person restricts food intake.
Many develop an intense fear of
weight gain and feel fat even
though they are underweight. Most
are in complete denial of the seri-
ous loss of body weight, medical
experts say.
With eating disorders women
often stop menstruating. They also
suffer damage to the heart and
other vital organs. Other symptoms
include low blood pressure, consti-
pation, abdominal pain, loss of
muscle mass, hair loss, acne and
sensitivity to coldness.
Bulimia nervosa, more common
than anorexia nervosa, is also called
the binge and purge disease. It is
characterized by the consumption

bulimic behavior trying to
achieve the type of body
they see.
Young women, who are
easily influenced by the
media, have an intense fear
of gaining weight, medical
experts say. According to a
recent study' published in
The Journal of Health, the
mass media is extremely �
influential on young
women between the ages
of 12 and 25. The study
published by Dr. Garfinkel . �
and Dr. Garner, revealed
that the mass media plays a
significant role in transmitting thinness
oriented norms and values. The study was
conducted on how the media contributes
to eating disorders of women.
"The media, have capitalized upon and
, promoted this image of thinness and
through popular programming have por-
trayed the successful and beautiful protag-
onists as thin writes Dr. Garfinkel, who
has spent years researching this issue.
The slim female form has been in fash-
ion in our society as early as the 1920s. A
recent article in Cosmopolitan looked at
how models influence young women to go
on diets as early as 12 years old. Pick up a
copy of magazines such as' Cosmopolitan,
Glamour and Seventeen, look at the titles
of articles; and you'll sec a constant preoc-
cupation with beauty, thinness and food.
In a May issue of Cosmopolitan, Megan
Fitzmorris McCafferty wrote about diets
and fat burning techniques.
"Diets work three times faster than
starvation McCafferty wrote.
Other magazines such as these portray
to us a slim and less curvaceous woman.
YVe are told and shown that a thin, slim fig-
ure is sexy and appealing. Victoria's Secret
catalogs show tall women with very thin
bodies mpdeling to us an image of beauty:
This is read'by young women and influ-
ences their views on themselves. Jill
Shirtz, manager of Victoria's Secret.in
Greenville, feols that women with a high
self-esteem will not be affected by the
media's portrayal of ultra-thin women. She
believes only women who are not eonfi-
dent with themselves will be influenced
by these skinny models.
"A woman always wants to feel beauti-
ful, but some women look to others to
make them feel beautiful. If women look
to these models to improve their self-
esteem, they are looking in the wrong
place Shirtz said.
Kelly Stray, an ECU senior, feels stu-
dents are constantly bombarded with
information and articles about fat-free
products and diets.
"I dont want to feel that I have to
watch everything that goes into my mouth.
If I am constantly worried about gaining
weight it will be very hard to eat Stray
said.
Other women may not be as resistant as
Stray is to such images. Some women, as a
result, resort to starving themselves to
achieve what they think is a perfect body.
The popular television show "Ally
McBeal" stars a young woman who went
from a size four to a siz,e one in the first
season of the show. Erin Pohgrid, an ECU
freshman, feels women should not view
these actresses and models as perfect.
"I think girls should eat what they want
as long as they exercise. Starving them-
selves down to a size one is not attractive
Pohgrid said.
Approximately 1 in 200 women
between the ages of 12 and 30
are anorexic. Anorexia is an eating
' isbrder that involves self-starvation.

. FOCI'S WRITER
Over the past 20 years, eating disorders
have emerged as serious and deadly
problems. Stories of well-known peo-
ple's eating disorders and deaths have
appeared in the media. Yet studies
show that eating disorders are accom-
panied by psychological disorders as
well.
Specialist Tracey Smith from the
Medical Weight Loss Systems in
Greenville said, "Eating disorders can
stem from depression, major transi-
tions, death in the family, or can be a
way of getting attention
�Singer Karen Carpenter suffered
from anorexia and bulimia for years.
Reports suggest that she' always felt
like she was in her brother's shadow.
She sought treatment and went to a
psychiatrist. She expressed feelings of
being obsessed and trapped. On Feb.
4, 1983, Carpenter died of heart failure
caused bv chronic anorexia nervosa.
She was 32.
Tracey Gold, best known for her
character, Carol Scaver on the televi-
sion sitcom "Growing Pains also suf-
fered from anorexia. Gold was 12

Disorders
continued from pagi 9
of a large amount of food in one sit-
ting, afterwards "purged" by vomit-
ing, laxitives, diuretics or enimas.
Victims of the disorder also fast and
resort to excessive excercise to pre-
vent weight gain. As many as one-
fourth of the nation's young women
periodically binge then purge,
according to W. Stewart Agras,
author of Management of Bulimia.
Experts say women today are
more concerned than ever about
their bodies. Just take a look
around, on campus, in the dining
halls or at the rcc center. Dr. Jane
Ross, staff psychologist in Mental
Health Services at ECU, estimates
that 20 to 25 percent of women on
college campuses suffer from an
eating disorder.
According to Dr. Ross, separa-
tion from family, perfectionism,
anxiety, a strong need to be in con-
trol, and a desire to fit in are all com-
mon factors that tend to lead to eat-
ing disorders among college stu-
dents.
Dr. Ross said she does not get to
reach as many students as she
would like because students have
trouble admitting they have a prob-
lem.
"No one can help unless you ask
for it she said.
Fortunately, there is more hope
for those who suffer from an eating
disorder today than ever before.
Counseling centers are everywhere.
ECU Health Services offers coun-
seling, as does Pitt Memorial
Hospital. Family members and
friends need to be aware and pay
attention to outward signs. Early
intervention is important Experts
say that if caught early, eating disor-
ders are treatable.
"It is a very serious matter with a
long range of health problems. If
you are concerned, please ask for
help. It is not just a four-year college
problem. An eating disorder can
become unbeatable Ross said.
Fame
continued from page 9
when she was diagnosed by her
pediatrician. She also suffered from
Attention Deficit Disorder. Even
after participating in psychothera-
py, she still could not stop dieting.
Gold has recovered from the dis-
ease, but claims it was a quest for
control, when a lot of life seems out
of control.
Like these young celebrities,
many college-age women suffer
from eating disorders. Experts esti-
mate that about 4 percent of
women suffer from an eating disor-
der. Many sufferers say they felt a
quest for control that was met by
the disorder.
One young student at
ECU recovering from anorexia
says, "I just felt like every aspect of
my life was controlled by someone
else. But, no one but me could,con-
trol what or when I was eating
Symptons

ing disorder, is an abnormal craving
for food, and is characterized by
episodes of binging, or excessive
eating, and purging. Some warning
signs of bulimia include secret eat-
ing, evidence of missing food, pre-
occupation and constant talk about
food and weight, avoidance of
restaurants or social events where
food is present, and bathroom visits
right after meals.
Eating disorders such as anorex-
ia and bulimia are often accompa-
nied by mood shifts. Victims also
suffer from depression, guilt and
self-hate, experts say. They also
have a great need for approval.
Warning signs of both of these
eating disorders often include the
use of laxatives, enemas or diuretics
to dispose of food or bodilit fluids,
as well as rigid or harsh exercise
regimes, and a constant fear of
being fat or out of control, regard-
less of weight.
"With my eating disorders, I felt
-like I had control over at least one
thing in my life, but what is ironic is
that my disorders had control over
me. I thought about food or my
appearance from the time I woke
up to the time I went to bed
Jennifer said.
Families may contribute to the
onset of bulimia or anorexia, so
additional warning signs of these
disorders may be present in the
home. It is hard to prevent an eat-
ing disorder if the family is focused
excessively on perpetual dieting
and worries about weight, accord-
ing to Arnold Anderson, author of
Practical Comprehensive
Treatment of Anorexia- Nervosa
and Bulimia.
Take the scale out of the kitchen
and the picture of the pig off the
refrigerator, Anderson advises. A
family member or friend may inad-
vertently contribute to an eating
disorder by simply remarking that
the individual has gained a few
pounds.
"I truly feel that I would not be
here on this earth today if it weren't
for my fiance' who took notice of
my eating disorders and confronted
me with the reality that I would
either stop doing what I had been
for most of my life or die. And here
I am Jennifer said.
She also commented on how the
mental aspect, of her disease still
exists, but at least she is alive to win
that battle too.
Accounts of Anorexia Nervosa
and Bulimia Nervosa have, been
described as far back as in of
Biblical times and the Middle Ages
as an illness of some sort related to
eating. Present day anorexia and
bulimia have become more preva-
lent and compose a characteristic in
ten to 15 percent of all Americans,
adults as well as children. The
warning signs of these disorders are
increasingly important to aid in the
prevention of anorexia and bulimia
before they begin to interfere with
the quality of a victim's life.
Without some intervention, who
knows where Jennifer would be
today? That is why catching
anorexia and bulimia in their begin-
ning stages and noticing the warn-
ing signs associated with them, and
other eating disorders, is so vital.

The Real World-ECU
College can be a confusing place for new students. You have come from different
backgrounds and places. You are meeting and interacting with so many different types
of people. This may be a challenge for you. The Office of Orientation and the
First-Year Experience knows about those challenges. That is why we have planned this
exciting diversity presentation.
The Real World-ECU will help you understand the issues surrounding abelism,
heterosexism, racism, and sexism, and the best thing about the Real World-ECU is that
it is FREE. On top of that, we feed you (No, meal cards are not required). By coming
to the Real World-ECU, you also get a free gift. OK, let's reviewfree food, interesting
discussions, and a free gift. Sounds like a perfect night!
The program is scheduled for Sunday, November 15th, 1998, from 5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
in the Multi-Purpose Room in Mendenhall Student Center. Did I mention it was
FREE? Everything will be provided for you. AH you have to do is sign up by November
11 th - space is limited. To reserve your spot for this fun and free evening, stop by the

MORE TESTS-WHY?

Taking tests is a natural part of college life but sometimes these tests go beyond the classroom
variety. Remember taking the SAT for college admissions? Well, you may now need to take
other national standardized tests to enter your chosen major or profession. Last year over 9,000
people at ECU took national tests in order to receive college credit, enter a degree program or
graduate school, or to obtain professional certification.
Planning ahead for these exams can relieve some test anxiety. Remember, national exams
usually arc offered only a couple times per year and the registration deadline is often about six
weeks prior to the test date. Registration fees are required for all exams. Check with the
Office of Research, Assessment, and Testing in Brewster D-102, for registration materials and
information on test dates, deadlines, qualifications, content and costs.
Want to earn college credit by exam? The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) offers
college students the opportunity to receive college credit in course content areas. Students
have the potential to receive credit for non AP honors courses taken in high school or for
in-depth learning that has occurred outside of the regular classroom.
Students planning to major in education must take the PRAXIS Pre-profcssional Skills Tests
(PPST) before they will be admitted to the teacher education program. Later, they must take
other PRAXIS exams to receive their teaching certification in North Carolina.
Are you a senior considering graduate or professional school? Then you may need to take the
Graduate Record Exam (GRE), the Miller Analogy Test (MAT), or one of several specialized
graduate admissions tests such as the Medical School Admissions Test (MCAT), the Allied
I Icalth Professions Admissions Test (AHPAT), the Graduate Management Admissions Test
(GMAT), andor the Pharmacy School Admissions Test (PCAT). If you aren't sure whether the
programs you arc considering require an admissions exam, talk with your advisor.
Need help preparing for the exam? Professional programs in the School of Business offers
review courses for both the GRE and GMAT. For further information about these reviews
call 328-6377.

Joe Student Handles Stress
At the beginning of the semester, all was well. I studied when I needed to and my free time was
easily managed by Mendenhall movies and socializing with my friends. It was no problem for me to
begin studying two days before each test because they were all spread out and most of the information
was review anyway. All was well and college was fun. But before I could spell "procrastination it was
November, and classes were hard, college was work, and I had never been so stressed in my life.
I had not predicted that I would have four tests in the same week that I had a paper due. I had one-
week to prepare before this "hell" week but I had so much to do that I didn't know where to start.
Luckily my RA suggested that I attend a program to learn how to deal with time management and
stress.
The program was well worth my time. The speaker outlined how most students arc successful at
managing stress and gave me some personal hints. I le helped me identify my classes and my fear of
failure as the main stressors in my life. I knew that I could not change these stressors, but he told me
how to modify their intensity by getting my work and studying done early and not waiting until the
very last minute. The speaker also suggested that 1 exercise and eat regularly because maintaining my
physical condition is a large factor of managing stress:
The guest speaker also helped me manage my time. I le suggested that I:
Determine the best time to study, exercise, and eat and then perform
those activities at those times;
Set deadlines;
Write out short and long range goals;
Concentrate on one thing at a time;
Divide a big assignment into sections
that can be done one at a time;
Plan in the morning and set priorities for the day;
Reward myself after a hard day of work.
I took this advice and focused hard during my week of
preparation. By using the stress and time management
techniques, I got more work done then I thought was possible.
By Monday of the next week my paper needed few revisions
and I only needed to review for each of my tests. I was able to
get eight hours of sleep before each test because I did not have to
cram in more studying and I was not nervous. I even took my tests
very relaxed. Who knows, maybe 1 really will graduate some day!
ACADEMIC SUPPORT FOR
STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES
ECU seeks to give all students equal opportunities to be successful in their classes.
To this end, the University knows that they must make the student's adjustment to the
campus environment go as smoothly as possible. This adjustment can be especially
difficult for students with disabilities. ECU's Department for Disability Support
Services works very hard to make sure that those students adjust adequately and
study successfully.
The Department of Disability Support Services serves students that are wheelchair
bound, mobility impaired, blindvisually impaired, deafhard of hearing, students with
learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders (ADDADHD) and other medical
impairments. Over the years, this Department has made many permanent changes to
the ECU campus to make the adjustment to university life easier for students with
disabilities. This Department does more than physical changes like elevators and
ramps; they also arrange continuing academic support services for students who
apply, including:
Educational Specialist for hearing impaired students;
Special developmental classes in English, reading,
comprehension, mathematics and writing;
Study skills instruction; . .
Reader services;
Notetaking services;
Tutorial services;
Sign language or oral interpreters in the classroom.
If you or someone you know is eligible for these academic services, contact the
Department of Disability Support Services at 328-6799.

Imagine taking a romantic trip to the
F beautiful Mediterranean beaches of
Spain, staying a while at an ancient
" castle, and ending the evening din-
ing on a delicious authentic Spanish dinner.
Sound too expensive to be true? Well, ECU has
made this an affordable possibility.
This year, the 1998-99 Travel-Adventure Film
and Theme Dinner Series is taking travelers to
eight exciting and exotic destinations here and
abroad. Some of the nation's most respected inde-
pendent filmmakers guide adventurers through
some famous and lesser-known areas of the
world's most fascinating places.
On Nov. 18, filmmaker Clint Denn has filmed
many of Spain's natural wonders in detail and
brings them all to you.
"The director of Mendcnhall Student Center
and the director of the department of Student
Unions, Bill Clutter, has gone the extra mile to
make sure we have top quality speakers and
films said J. Marshall, assistant director of
University UnionsStudent Activities.
Denn will show the varied landscapes of Spain
and many of the popular cities such as Madrid and
home of the 1992 Summer Olympics, Barcelona.

REM, which for the uninformed
means Rapid Eye Movement, has
once again come up with a record
that is ahead of its time.
The last couple of years have
not been too kind to Michael
Stipe's band. Their last album New
Adventures in Hi Fi was a ci itical
success, but the consumers didn't
exactly rush to the store at its mid-
night release. This was probably
due to their preceding album,
Monster, being such an abomina-
tion.
Then, in the middle of last year,
the band's drummer Bill Berry left
the band due to physical 01 ss.
This left the music world with the
words "break-up" ringing in its
ears. REM, however, assured the
world that they would persevere
and move on.
This brings us to REM's first
album since the departure of
Berry, entided Up. Keeping up
with their ongoing theme of always
being ahead of the game, REM
serves up yet another disc that,
though it takes a few listens, will
probably be in your player for
years to come.
It starts with the slow, solemn
ballad called "Airportman" in
which Stipe sings about�you
guessed it�a man who works at
an airport and the aspects of his
daily life. Stipe sings, "He moves
efficiendy beyond security Great
opportunity awaits
As the first track ends, the
album jumps into the drum-
fueled, steady-tempo styling of
"Lotus Then, into the sprawling
abyss of "Suspicion" on which Stipe
singsNow my suspicion's on the
rise1 have known1 have known
your kind This particular song
really grates on my nerves because
it is very slow-paced and repetitive.
The next song, "Hope will
most likely be played in rave clubs
until the dawn's early light. The
drum kit beat and the synthesized
guitars looking out from behind
smarmy vocals is very appealing,
and it shows the direction REM
may be heading in musically.
The song that really sticks with
you is the fifth track entitled "At My
Most Beautiful A beautiful piano
melody truly compliments Stipes
heartfelt vocals, as do the random
"ahhs and doot-doots" strategically
placed before the songs chorus.
. The rest of the album is
extremely varied, what with the
falling-down bass and the
unkempt keyboard effects of "The
Apologist Stipe sings, "They call
me the apologist and now that I'm

Breakfast Club waxes nostalgic
Caleb Rose
Assistant Editor
W
HP Be afraidBe very
afraid. Many folks talk
about how history
repeats itself. This usu-
ally means how styles
from the 60s and 70s are coming
back These are usually the decades
most referred to when talking about
style and music Thursday night the
doors of The Attic were a time warp
that lead straight back to possibly
the worst styled and musical decade
we have experiencedthe 80s.
"The Breakfast dub" to many
people is a movie that stars Judd
Nelson and Molly Ringwald.
The Breakfast flub is a four-piece
band that visits small clubs and
plays an arsenal of the purest 80s
rock around. To tell someone that
the 80s were returning would proba-
bly send a shiver up their spine,
however this is not the case with
The Breakfast Club.
These guys have it alt cheesy
hair, cheesy equipment, and most of
all cheesy antics. Most impressive
though is that the crowds are totally
into the music, dancing about and
singing along. They seem to be in
awe of the shirtless bass player, the
smoke machines, and the arena rock
performance of the songs we all
heard when we were tots going to K-
Mart with the parental units.
The Breakfast Club has a lot of
talent The four members harmo-
nize their vocals to perfection, they
are a tight musical force, and they
even pack in crowds of crazy folks
who all seem to view this band as
the best thing since sliced bread.
Some of the tunes that had The
Attic crowd singing and dancing
were "Take on Meby A-HaI Wear
My Sunglasses at Night" by Corey

performers to campus.
"Contact with a professional gives
the students a perspective that can
tie in to their studies said Marilyn
Lucht, assistant to the Dean of
Communications in the School of
Music. "They do some teaching and
rehearsing with the ensembles in
their field and also play a concert
The residencies benefit not only
the ECU School of Music but the
community of Greenville as well by
interacting with area schools and
orchestras.
"We try to get someone or a
group who is well-known and at a
height in their profession said

Movie Review
Holy Man is non-typical Eddie Murphy
David Moone
Staff Writer
If you're expecting the typical Eddie
Murphy comedy from this film,
you're in for a disappointment. This
movie, directed by Stephen Herek, is
more of a morality play than a com-
edy.
But there's plenty of humor. Eddie
Murphy plays "G a holy man on a
pilgrimage. He is traveling through
Miami when he spots two people on
the side of the road with a flat. He
offers help that is reluctantly accept-
ed by Ricky Haman (Jeff
Goldblum), and enthusiastically so
by the good-hearted Kate Hewell
(Kelly Preston).
Once the tire is fixed Ricky is ready
to make his getaway from this
strange character. Instead he nearly
runs him over, and has to take "G" to
the hospital in order to impress
Kate. Thus this holy man enters the
life of these two executives for a
home-shopping network.
The "Good Buy" home shopping
network is a good vehicle for the
director to throw in a few hilarious
celebrity cameos by the likes of
James Brown, Betty White and Dan
Marino. Jeff Goldblum is excellent in
this film. He has just enough dry
sarcasm to pull off being the fast-
talking, not-so-successful salesman.
One of my favorite running charac-
terizations is the times he spends in
the stockroom chanting his 90's
HIM continued from page 2
at my peak you know at first this
really hurts we joke about these
things
Then he bursts into a repetitive
barrage of "I'm Sorryf which leads
us to think that the character of the
song is in dire need of retribution.
Other standouts are the eerie
"Walk Unafraid which seems like a
song for people that don't conform
to the rest of the world, and the
starkly beautiful "Why Not Smile" is
equally breathtaking.
The new album sees REM in a
familiar place, and that place is
back in the future. If you don't like ,
this one to start with, give it some I
time. It will probably grow on you.
sales mantra: "My good is
better, my better is best
There's also some great
chemistry between Jeff
Goldblum and Kelly
Preston. From the begin-
ning you can see a connec-
tion in their acting that
draws you into the relation-
ship they develop onscreen.
A few other notable perfor-
mances are John Cryer as
Ricky's assistant Barry, and
Robert Loggia as the mean,
profit-driven boss
Mcbainbridge.
The message of this movie is impor-
tant; once "G" becomes famous
working for Ricky it is openly given
The Lord works in mysterious ways
during the rest of the movie. We as a

Video Review
Alice is a weird treat
Miccah Smith
Fountamhead Editor
How long has it been
since you pondered that
immortal questionHow is a raven
like a writing-desk?"
Alice, a dark masterpiece of anima-
tion by Swedish innovators Jan
Svankmajer and Bedrich Glaser, tells
the classic story of Lewis Caroll's
Alice m Wonderland in a way you've
never seen before.
This Alice lives on the dark side of
Victorian England: her world is one
of dusty taxidermy, pinned bugs and
countless glass jars filled with myste-
rious preserved specimens.
Alice lolls about her house and gar-
den, pitching pebbles into streams
and teacups and suffering the after-
noon ennui of middle-class child-
hood in the country.
A scratching sound breaks her out of
her sullen reverie in the tea-room
and she glances around until she
spies the source: a white taxidermed
rabbit in a glass case is struggling to
free itself of its prison.
While she watches in fascination, it
jumps through
the glass, opens a
secret drawer in
the floor and
takes a tiny pair
of gloves, a hat
and a waistcoat
from it
Now dressed in
the height of fash-
ion, but bleeding
sawdust profusely,
the White Rabbit
pulls out a watch from its innards
and shoots off for the Queen's tea
party like a bullet.
Alice, naturally, follows. What she
sees and does in the oddly night-
marish Wonderland differs from the
book more in style and interpreta-
tion that in actual content.
A bottle of ink, taken internally,
shrinks her into a porcelain doll. An
ordinary tea cake makes her grow up
again. Other assorted adventures
include the use of her head as an
island campsite by a rat in the sea of
her tears and a meeting with the
Caterpillar, who is a stuffed sock
with eyeballs and false teeth, in a
tt� Afct w� tH know
room full of wormlike socks jump-
ing through holes in the floor.
Sound weird yet? You haven't seen
the animals, very few of which are
alive. Most are taxidermed, or have
skeleton parts, with big bulgy eyes. I
couldn't decide whether this movie
was more like Toy Story or a Nine
Inch Nails video.
Alice is a movie about the unknown
in our subconscious and how objects
that look perfectly ordinary to adults
take on sinister and ominous impor-
tance to children.
Phis it's the only movie you'll find
with a cameo appearance by a
live steak!

ODDITIES
Attleboro men missing in
Fbridafar more than a month
BOSTON (AP) The Orlando, Ha
Police Department logs five or six
missing persons cases each week. Of
those, 98 percent of the "missing"
rum up safe and sound a day or two
later.
But for three adult men to disappear
without a trace is extraordinary,
according to the authorities who
remain baffled by a trio of Attleboro
friends missing for five weeks.
Roger DesVergnes, 31, Scott
Renquin, 34, and Dan Nelson, 32,
haven't been seen since Sept 28.
They vanished while in Orlando on
what should have been a one-week
vacation.
"What happened to these guys is
really unusual, really strange said
Sgt. Gary Carter of the Orlando
police. "Three guys and a car just
don't disappear?
The men were last seen at Renquin's
Orlando timeshare condominium.
They were due to fly home Oct. 2.
Police suspect the men disappeared
while off-road driving in their
rented 4-wheel drive vehicle, a 1999
brown GMC Jimmy with the license
plate WUT-OOJ.
The cops figure they got into trouble
somewhere, and the car went off
into a lake. Problem is, there are
some 400 lakes in central Florida
alone.
Authorities don't suspect foul play,
although they haven't ruled it out
entirely. But say, for the sake of argu-
ment, the men were murdered in a
fight or a drug deal gone bad,
perhaps.
"Our guys here would just shoot
them and leave them Carter said.
"We would have found the bodies
by now?
People can make themselves
disappear if they want to. There are
plenty of examples of men and
women who want new lives and
simply vanish.
New Department Store to
offer mammograms
PITTSBURGH (AP) When it comes
to getting a mammogram, most
women would really just rather be
shopping.
So company officials have sand-
wiched a mammography center on
the third floor of a new Lazarus
department store that is opening in
downtown Pittsburgh on Friday. The
center, operated by Allegheny
General Hospital, is located near
petite sportswear and ladies dresses
and is the first in-store facility of its
kind in Pennsylvania.
"We want to make getting a mam-
mogram more convenient for
women, and we want to eliminate
the fear said Linda Duncan, man-
ager of the Allegheny General Breast
Center.
Similar centers are big hits in other
cities. Lazarus' parent company,
Atlanta-based RLG, provides rent-
free space for mammography at
stores in Atlanta, Cincinnati and
Columbus, Ohio. In the first five
weeks, two of those stores per-
formed 143 mammograms.
Shoppers can drop by without an
appointment, and if there is a wait,
the technician will provide a pager
so the patient can continue perusing
the racks. The paperwork and mam-
mogram take no more than a half
hour to complete.
Shoppers must bring an insurance
card and a recommendation for the
procedure from their doctor, if pos-
sible, to cover the $150 mammo-
gram. But women without insurance
still have a chance for coverage
through the American Cancer
Society, which offers vouchers
underwritten by Race for the Cure.
The cancer society reports that
45,000 American women die each
year from breast cancer, and early
diagnosis can improve survival rates
by 95 percent.
Women 50 and older should have an
annual mammogram and those
with increased risk should begin
them at age 40, according to recom-
mendations by The National
Institutes of Health.
"There is no reason for a woman not
to get a mammogram Ms. Duncan
said. "We're using this to promote
the fact that we want women to
develop good health habits. We hope
the experience is so positive that she
will go back to her office and say,
"That was no big deal

Vvhsder, Thespian,
Governor A look at the
Body's body of film
LOS ANGELES (AP) He chews
tobacco and mows down the bad
guys with a big gun. He wrings a
woman's neck and throws her
limp body into barbed wire.
He smacks a guy around
and impales him on spikes.
He wears a black boa and
provides commentary on
an exorcism.
He is Minnesota's next gov-
ernor.
While much has been made
about Govelect Jesse "The
Body" Ventura's colorful
career as a professional
wrestler, so far overlooked
by many voters, political analysts
and late-night joke writers is
Ventura's equally colorful movie
career.
In several features and direct-to-
video movies he mainly plays
very tough guys who kill a lot of
people in bad ways, while show-
ing tiny glimpses of his softer
side. In one film he plays himself,
or at least his wrestling persona.
"He's unique, he's bigger than life,
and he's over the top said Julie
Wainwright, CEO of Reel.com, an
online video sales she that wasted
no time after Tuesday's election to
offer
selections from the Jesse "The
Body" Ventura film library.
Among the lot, three stand out
"PredatorThe Running Man"
and "Repossessed because he
has some screen time and
because these films are still on
the video store shelves.
