African-American students often feel invisible on campus

Editor's Note: This article is the

ECU has made great strides toward draw-
ing more black students to campus.

mostly white high school, so he was accus-

But for black students who come
from high schools where the racial mix is
more even, ECU can be quite over-

Cox suggests that, left to their own
devices, students from different ethnic

Former ECU Playhouse manager
Gary Faircloth is prepared to go to
trial Feb. 22 for the embezzlement
charges brought against him last
Faircloth, an employee of the
university since 1987, pleaded not
guilty on four felony counts of
embezzlement and one count of
forgery related to the embezzle-
ment of funds from the East
Carolina Theater Fund.
Faircloth's court date was set
during his arraignment in the Pitt
County Superior Court.
Faircloth, 47, is accused of
embezzling over $23,000 from the
fund and was fired from the uni-
versity on July 31.
According to reports, ECU
closed the theater foundation
account and transferred the
remaining balance of approximate-
ly $70,000 to its main fund raising
arm, the ECU Foundation, when
According to Ben Irons, attor-
ney for ECU, all evidence regard-
ing the case has been handed over
to the SBI.

differences in the foundation's
Faircloth's replacement, Jeffrey
Woodruff, managing director of
the East Carolina Playhouse, said
he came after Faircloth was gone.
He is no way involved in what is
going on with the case and
Faircloth only knows what he has
heard and read in the paper.
In addition to pleading not
guilty, Faircloth waived a probable
cause hearing and denied accusa-
tions and charges against him.
Preacher's annual visit sparks heated debates
Erica S i k e s
The mall preacher Gary Birdsong came
again this year to speak to a full crowd of
enraged and inspired spectators.
On Feb. 11, 1999, students gathered
around to carry on the spring tradition. Gary
Birdsong, an annual visitor of ECU could be
found on the mall with a crowd surrounding
Many witnesses to Birdsong's testimony
and evangelism have seen a handful of out-
rageous accusations and judgments. When
junior Michael Smith inquired about
Birdsong's credentials, he replied that he
was a graduate of Christ to the Nations Bible
College in Dallas, Texas. Birdsong has no
official ministerial certification and is non-
denominational. He specializes in campus
ECU is one of the top schools on
Birdsong's list to reform because of its party-
school reputation. However, that was not his
only pet peeve. He adamantly protested
many touchy subjects including abortion,
homosexuality and interracial marriages.
"I don't think it's wise Birdsong said
when asked his opinion on interracial dating.
He claims that it causes confusion within
the family, thus disrupting the balanced
structure of the family.
Birdsong proceeded to give his advice by
declaring that women should be subservient
to their husbands.
When attacked by the female crowd,
Birdsong replied, "When you meet a man
like mc, you'll want to submit also
Birdsong also believes that a true
Christian should be intolerant to homosexu-
als, non-Christians and "those who sit in
One of Birdsong's main doctrines is that it
is man's duty to make righteous judgments.
According to Internet research on the
Satanic Bible, it is one of the satanic com-
mandments to judge.
Birdsong's theories also include areas as
far-fetched as the decline of males' grades is
as a result of masturbation. He is also quick
to denounce the females standing in the
crowd wearing shorts and tank tops.
"Women are emotional and will believe
anything Birdsong said. "All they do is nag,

Thornton said, "God is a God of wrath, but

word screamed at his people, he wants it pre-
sented with love

We find it ironic that the Millennium Bug may come to bite the technological world in its
With the advances of technology and the Internet over the past ten years it is difficult to
imagine a world void of these conveniences. Yet according to many information technology
specialists the Y2K problem could cause serious inconveniences to businesses, industries and
our day-to-day lives. Despite the fact that information technology experts realized the Year
2000 problem was imminent over ten years ago, it is now 10 months until the year 2000 and
many have just begun to prepare for problems. Whether you believe the Millennium Bug will
bring an end to the world as we know it or that it will cause a mere hiccup, everyone should
use this as a lesson for the new millennium.
When the Internet is old hat the new millennium will be serving up more outrageous
advances like gene therapy, cloning and cryogenics (the practice of freezing a dead diseased
human in hopes restoring life at some future time when a cure for the disease could possibly
be found.) It is imperative that as we experiment we also think of the long term consequences
and potential pitfalls of our technological inventions.
This century, the Millennium Bug and all its problems was caused by a simple oversight in
setting the dates of computers. If we do not mix caution with our experimentation the next
p century could bring even worse problems. A simple oversight in computers is one thing, an
"oversight" in someone's genes is a different ball game. If we do not learn to plan better, imag-
ine what the dooms day fanatics of the year 2999 will be predicting.

Well once again, ECU has allowed
a loud mouth, hell fire and brim-
stone preacher to come and raise a
ruckus on the Mall of our great
university. I had a great time mess-
ing with this guy, and I am sure a
few of you did too. Here are some
of the highlights of this past
I was walking to class
when I first noticed him bad
mouthing some guy. Then he stut-
tered to me "I, I, I say to you boy,
let's go look at some Playboys, and
drink some beers, and later we'll
go out and chase some women
And I gave an obligatory "Amen"
just to spite him. That's when he
started screaming something
about fornicating and burning in
hell and blah, blah, blah. I saw lips
moving, but I really couldn't hear
Again, later that day, I
decided to go back to the mall and
see everybody else mess with the
guy. The funniest thing was that
about 20 people would all scream
at this guy, and people would sit
there and raise their hands waiting
to be recognized, like they were in
class or something.
I had to throw in my 10 cents
worth, and of course I sank to his
level by engaging him with Jim
Jones survivalist jokes about
drinking cyanide-laced Kool Aid
to escape from all the black CIA
helicopters that arc carrying
cocaine for the Mob.
But the hardest thing to
accept is that this guy did his job.
Just as any writer can elicit a great
response by writing on a hot sub-
ject, this guy was able to heat peo-
ple up, and they we.it around the
rest of the day pissed off at how
someone could be so hateful. This
is how he operates. You may not
understand it when you're sitting
there screaming it out with the
guy, but if you arc like me, you
went home that night and might
have agreed with something the
Case in point. Abortion is
a emotionally and physically
painful procedure. Nobody wakes
up one day and says "Oh goody,
I'm having an abortion But yet,
people would argue with this guy
over abortion, and make it seem
like it's better than winning the
lottery. I don't approve of the way
in which he delivers his message,
but I agree with the message.
Maybe the reason that we
avoid people like him is not
because we ate too good for him,
but because we are not good
enough. College students stray
from our religious upbringing and
our sense of decency and morality,
and just roll with the crowd. We
are not good enough to hold on to
our beliefs, so we criticize anyone
who reminds us of our shortcom-
ings. Hey, I admit it, I hate being

Impeachment views across the nation
From the Asbury Park (N.J.) Press:
After his acquittal yesterday, President Clinton
asked people to forgive him Perhaps eventually
some, who opposed his removal from office while
holding their noses, might.For those whose hatred
goes back to the draft and not inhaling, Clinton's
only hope would be to believe in miracles.
As for Ken Starr, Linda Tripp, Henry Hyde and
company, there are three words of wisdom to which
all those who hold them in low esteem should
adhere: If you can't say anything nice about som-
body, don't say anything at all.
From The Dallas Morning News:
The U.S. Senate's gathering at noon Friday lacked
the dramatic suspense that surrounded Andrew
Johnson's narrow escape from impeachment in
1868. There were clear signs all week that the
Senate would not remove President William
Jefferson Clinton from office on grounds of perjury
and obstruction of justice. Perhaps the only surprise
was that neither charge gained a majority of guilty
Still, when high noon arrived, and the chief jus-
tice of the United States asked in a solemn voice,
"Senators, how say you the hushed chamber
showed the gravity of the vote ahead.
That solemnity and order Friday should help
Americans feel proud of their country, despite the
ugly matters that brought the vote. This nation
relies upon process, not bayonets, to resolve its con-
From the Detroit Free Press:
And now it's Kenneth Starr's turn. Between the
philandering president and the obsessed prosecu-
tor, it is the prosecutor who has been the greater
threat to the values of the republic.
Now it's time to shut down the inquisition,
write finis to the tawdry drama, and send Starr
himself back into the private sector, where he can
console himself with million-dollar fees from the
clients and associates who have long hoped he
could bring down Bill Clinton. It does not excuse
Clinton to say that Starr has been the prosecutor of
thoughtful jurists' nightmares. Back in 1940, con-
servative Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson
issued the classic warning against the rogue prose-
cutor "who will pick people that he thinks he
should get, rather than cases that need to be pros-
ecuted who would search the lawbooks or set the
bloodhounds sniffing to find any offense, no mat-
ter how technical or trivial, to pin on his target.
Jackson could hardly have described Starr better.

Swing dancing gains
popularity on campus
Freshmen Mary Beth Webster and Blake Braswell dance the night away at the Methodist Center every Tuesday night.

The new rave that has been sweep-
ing the nation in commercials and
music videos has finally reached
ECU. Swing dancing is here. Fear
not if you do not know how to
swing because lessons are given at
the Wesley Foundation by Rev.
Wilkinson considers himself to
be very much into swing, and when
he came to ECU last summer, he
began inquiring about it.
"I was used to going to swing
dances nearly every weekend in
either Durham or Greensboro
Wilkinson said. "I couldn't find
anything here in Greenville, yet
everybody seemed really interest-
It just so happened that the one
of the rooms at the Wesley
Foundation had a large dance floor
area, and Wilkinson decided to give
"Since I am a slow learner in
dance, I am a good teacher
Wilkinson said. "I teach the dance
steps slowly and make sure stu-
dents are comfortable. When peo-
ple leave my class, they know how
According to Wilkinson, 50 stu-
dents showed up the first night last
semester and the Wesley
Foundation has been swinging ever
During the late 1920s, swing
dancing began in the ballrooms as a
spin off of the popular dance, the
Charleston, in I larlem, New York.
As this new, yet no named dance
continued to grow in popularity, a
New York Times reporter went to
the Savoy Ballroom to sec what all
of the fuss was about. Mind you,
this was the same time that Charles
Lindbergh took his historic flight
over the Atlantic. When the
reporter asked the kids the name of
this new dance, one of them,
remembering the headline of the
paper that morning entitled, 'Lindy
Hops Atlantic called out, "Why,
it's the Lindy Hop
The name stuck and throughout
"It's a nice environment where
you don't have to worry about
impressing other people like at
the years it began to branch off into
other dances such as the East Coast
Swing (better known as the
Jitterbug) and Shag.
In the 1950s, bebop and rock
became the new fad and swing
music and the dancing faded out.
In the 1980s, swing dancing
resurfaced in Europe when dancers
saw the movie, Animal Crackers,
where the actors were doing the
Lindy Hop. The Europeans con-
tacted the United States in hopes of
finding people who remembered
the dance and came up with
Frankie Manning, one of the origi-
nal dancers in the movie. From
there, Manning began traveling all
over the world holding swing dance
workshops and participating in the
rebirth of swing.
"I took a workshop with
Manning last year in Durham
Wilkinson said. "He sees his mis-
sion as almost spiritual
Wilkinson recently conducted
his own swing workshop at a
national student conference for col-
lege students from all around the
"The students talked about dif-
ferent swing clubs around their uni-
versities Wilkinson said.
According to Wilkinson, college
students are becoming very inter-
ested in swing dancing.
"It seems as if students are tired
of modern dancing and jumping
around Wilkinson said. "Swing
has technical moves you do with a
partner, and you actually dance
"It's hard to dance when you are
at the club said junior Lorainc
Helms. "There's no actual tech-
nique like in swing dancing
"There's other places that teach
swing for $20 an hour, but here it's
free for anyone said junior Jaime
"It's a nice environment where
you don't have to worry about
impressing other people like at a
club said sophomore Bryan Jarvis.
"Everyone is clean and sober�it's
an enjoyable thing to do

campus exchange program
Imagine yourself in a whole new
world with new faces, beautiful
places and exotic sceneries. ECU
has made this possible for students
to study in other countries through
the International Studies Program.
"ECU has provided various
opportunities to students for the
last 25 years said Linda
McGowan, oversees opportunities
According to McGowan, approx-
imately 30-35 students participate
in the ECU exchanges each year.
Some go for one semester while
others go for the full year.
A lot of preparation goes into
studying abroad. McGowan
encourages students to begin the
thought process at least eight to
nine months in advanced.
Once it has been decided that
the student is ready to go abroad,
McGowan holds information and
"I explain the options students
have when they study, work and

Through the exchange program,
students do not have to worry about
extravagant tuition fees. Studying
in another country is the same
amount as studying here at ECU.
"Participating in the exchange

Samantha Dunn, an English
major, received the opportunity to
study abroad at the Manchester
University in England. She was ini-

ticipated in the program. According
to Dunn, her experiences there
were very interesting.
The major language differences
that she encountered were found
primarily in the British slang.
"Their slang words were quite
different than ours Dunn said.
For instance, when the British
say that a man was 'pissed they
mean he was intoxicated.

man Toni Kilgore.
Kilgore set a new school and per-
sonal record in the triple jump with a
jump of 41'6 12
"I knew she would eventually
jump that far, but I did not expect her
to do it this soon said Chatles
"Choo" Justice, ECU's head women's
track coach. "She will continue as she
gets stronger and more experienced
Another sparkling performance
came from Michelle Clayton. In the
weight throw, Clayton set a new
school record and a new NCAA provi-
sional qualifying mark with a throw of
60' 8 Clayton, ranked 10th in the
country, wound up first among col-
lege competitors losing only to a pro-
fessional. In the shot put, Clayton
Kiona Kirkpatrick set a school
record in the 400 meter dash.
Kirkpatrick finished 12th.
"She ran a perfect race. She ran
really well Justice said.
Rasheca Barrow had an exception-
al meet, running well in two events.
In the 200 meter dash, Barrow placed
11th. Her time of 25.11 seconds broke
her personal record and qualified her
for the ECAC Championships later
this month. Barrowfollowed up her
performance in the 200 by finishing
seventh in the 60 meter dash.
In the long jump Kilgore and
teammate Toshima Dabbs took ninth
and 10th place respectively.
In the women's 4x400 meter relay
ECU qualified for the ECAC
Championships and placed eighth.
The men's 4x400 meter relay final
was touted as "the Battle of the
Carolinas" because it pitted squads
from the ECU, the University of
North Carolina and the University of
South Carolina. The battle turned out
not to be much of a race. ECU took
the lead on the second leg and won
by 15 meters.
"Before the race they played this
fight song on the loud speakers and
said it was the battle of the Carolinas.
People were up and screaming.
That's what it's all about said Bill
Carson, ECU's head men's track
The 4x400 meter relay team of
James Alexander, Darrick Ingram,
Lawrence Ward and Damon Davis
finished first out of 52 teams. The
team is currently ranked ninth in the
Many of the runners on the 4x400
squad had already competed in the
open 400 meters earlier in the meet.
Davis finished sixth despite drawing
Ward won his heat in the 400 as he
had in the past few meets, but like
those meets Ward did not make it
into the finals.
"We're winning heats but we're
not getting into the fastest heats
In the 500 meter dash, Lynn
Stewart placed second while team-
mate Von Johnson placed fourth.
Johnson's time of 1:04.83 qualified
him for the IC4A Indoor
In the 60 meter dash, Vaughn

Woods came into the
final round one stroke
ahead of Brown, arid quick-
ly took a four-stroke lead
after birdies on three of the
first four holes at the 7,055-

But he also found him-

both birdied 13, putting
Woods at 20-under and
Brown one behind him.
Woods and Brown both had

Woods was visibly upset

What can men and women do to insure that all sexual intimacy is mutual,

ABOUT LAST NIGHT
Last night I was downtown with several of my friends. It was a night
like any other night downtown. ejKftJjjjkaghing and having a
great time. Before I knew what was happening, I began to feel very ill.
I was sleepy, having trouble staying alert. I couldn't understand what
was happening because I had not had very much to drink. I had drunk as
much as I usually drink, but I felt as if I had drank a lot more.
Today I am thankful for my friends. I told one of my friends that I was
feeling really bad. After some general teasing, "lightweight one of my
tends helped me get home safely. One of them even stayed with me
ntil the next morning.
Today I feel like I will neveT be the same again. I don't really have a
lot of memories about what happened to me, but I know it was awful. I
remember feeling numb, as though I couldn't move, couldn't defend
myself. I remember someone was with me, doing things I didn't want
them to do. I remember asking them to stop, saying, "No Today, I,
feel afraid, my world is a very diflnnt place now. Where were my
friends? Where were the people fflppught I could trust?
