200 show for Take Back the Night rally
Cold weather, rain did not

Cold weather and light rain did not deter
almost 200 supporters from meeting in the
middle of campus Thursday night in honor of
Sexual Assault Awareness Week.
A "Take Back the Night" rally was held at
the Cupola where students and faculty lit
candles and marched through campus chanti-
ng phrases such as "Yes means yes, no means
no, whatever we wear, wherever we go and
"Men and women unite, take back the
night
"I think it's wonderful to see this many
people show on a rainy night to show their
support said Jaime Thorsby, member of the
sexual support committee.
"I'm so glad I attended the vigil said Lori
Mobley, member of Alpha XI Delta sorority.
"Seeing all these people come together in the
cold rain, and taking a stand on such a serious
subject, I actually felt a kind of bond with the
others
"Despite the rain and cold weather the
outcomes of the Take Back the Night rally
was numerous. The participation of the fra-
ternities showed greek unity said Kristen
McKeitnan philanthropy chairman of Alpha
Delta Pi, "Nice that everyone as a whole
could come together for such an important
"It was great to see that some fellow male
students took the time to
attend said Genetta Tucker, also a mem-
ber of Alpha XI Delta. "But it would have
been fabulous to see more male support,
since this problem
involves men as well as women
The 200 supporters marched down to the
Sigma Phi Epsilon and Sigma Sigma Sigma
were two of many campus organizations that
participated
in Sexual Assault Awareness Week events.

After a 3-2 victory over Wake Forest, the 22nd best team in the
nation, the Pirates came home to sweep the Ohio Bobcats
last weekend in a three game series.
"We did a good job versus Wake Forest. It was a big win to put

In Saturday's first game, Foye Minton, the man who threw
ECU's first no hitter in 10 years versus NC State, started and
threw seven innings striking out seven while giving up only five
hits and five runs.
Ohio scored first in the second inning and again in the fourth.

award given
Catherine Fad recipient
of new scholarship
Terra Steinbeiser
STAFF WRITER
Catherine Fach is the first recipient of
a new scholarship for graduate stu-
dents in Maritime History and
Nautical Archaeology.
The award was established last
year by Matthew and Barbara Landers
of Greenville who funded the scholar-
ship because of their interest and
involvement in naval history.
Matthew Landers became interested
in the ECU Department of Maritime
History last year while using the man-
uscripts division to write his naval war
story, Gunner's Mate. During World
War II Barbara Landers also partici-
pated as a radio operator for the Navy
and worked with the WAVES, which
was a war-time women's naval organi-
zation.
"The scholarship is awarded based
on grades, performance in school and
the total student activity in maritime
studies said Dr. Timothy Runyan,
director of the Department of
Maritime History. "A committee
made up of professors in the History
Graduate Department sits down and
decides who is the most qualified
based on all of that
"Since this is a new award, there
weren't really a lot of applicants said
Dr. Anthony Papalas, director of grad-
uate studies and committee member.
"However, we expect that when word
gets out about it, it will become a very
competitive scholarship

While Mrs. Crain was at home

Mother
Teresa joins
sainthood
CALCUTTA, India (AP) Pope
John Paul II has waived the
mandatory wait of five years after
death to begin the process of even-
tual sainthood for Mother Teresa,
sparking hopes that the nun who
dedicated her life to the destitute
of Calcutta will be declared a saint
soon, the archbishop of Calcutta
said Sunday.
Archbishop Henry D'Souza told
The Associated Press he had
received a letter from the Vatican's
Congregation for the Causes of the
Saints on Dec. 12 announcing the
waiver, but had not publicized it.
In Rome, the Vatican confirmed
the dispensation from the pope,
"The demand was so great
and insistent that the Holy
Father thought to go ahead"
with the dispensation,
Rev. Ciro Banedettiniz.
Vatican Spokesman
who had one point had indicated
that the five-year-rule would hold,
even for the internationally
beloved Mother Teresa.
"The demand was so great and
insistent that the Holy Father
thought to go ahead" with the dis-
pensation, said a Vatican
spokesman, the Rev. Ciro
Benedettini.
Now Calcutta's archbishop can
begin the process of gathering
information and testimony at the
diocesan level about Mother
Teresa, the first step toward possi-
ble beatification and sainthood.
"The supreme pontiff has here-
by granted the dispensation from
the norm so that a petition to start
the cause of beatification and can-
onization of the servant of God,
Teresa, the foundress of the
Congregation of the Missionary
Sisters and Brothers of Charity,
could be initiated before the five-
year period of her death a letter
said.
This is the first time in recent
memory that such an exception has
been made, the archbishop said.
"It is an important step forward,
an important testimony to the
sanctity of Mother Teresa. The
Holy Father would not have given
this dispensation has he not
received such requests from all
over the world the archbishop
said.
Beatification requires the con-
firmation of a miracle. After beatifi-
cation, research on a second mira-
cle, needed for canonization, can
begin.
Already two miracles have been
attributed to Mother Teresa and
have been sent to the Vatican for
verification, the archbishop said.
One of these miracles reported-
ly happened in the United States
where a Frenchwoman broke sev-
eral ribs in a car accident, but her
injuries miraculously healed when
she wore a Mother Teresa medal-
lion around her neck.
Another miracle reported was
that of a Palestinian girl suffering
from cancer who was cured after
Mother Teresa appeared in her
dreams and said, "Child, you are
cured
Archbishop D'Souza said he
would send a petition to the pope
to begin the canonization process .
for Mother Teresa in two or three
months time. He said he hoped the
Catholic nun would be declared a
saint in 2000, when the Vatican cel-
ebrates the start of the third mil-
lennium of Christianity.

Last week, we acknowledged Sexual Assault Awareness Week and the university took this
task on with full force. Many programs were available to educate both men and women on the
severity of sexual assault and how to protect oneself; there was also an abundance of
informational pamphlets and brochures stacked on a table in front of the Wright Place and
many banners were raised high on the mall area and in front of many Greek houses declaring
their support.
But where are they now?
Sure, a week was delegated to acknowledge sexual assault awareness, but what about the
other 358 days in the year?
We believe sexual assault is an ongoing issue people must be conscious of on a daily basis.
A week of pamphlets and a panel of experts is not going to put much of a dent in the
situation.We shouldn't be gung-ho about learning more and participating in campus activities
and then cast it all aside at the week's end.
True, we are taking a step in the right direction with our programs, but we definitely should
do more. It's not enough to bring sexual assault up in a show of political correctness once a
year or when someone becomes a victim. We should be aware at all times and take
precautionary measures to keep ourselves safe.
For example; travel to and from the downtown bars in groups, carry mace, take a self-
defense class and be careful about who you are around when you are drinking. Never walk
around campus at night alone. Call a friend or the Shuttle Service to pick you up from night
classes.
There are organizations both on and off campus that have staff on hand and information if
you have been sexually assaulted or if you are looking for more information. Laura Sweet,
ECU's sexual assault victim's advocate is available to guide victims through the legal, medical
and counseling processes. The Mental Health and Counseling Centers are also here to assist
students if they or someone they know have been sexually assaulted. Help from the Real
Crisis Intervention Inc. is also available at 758-4357.
LETTER
to the Editor
Campus race relations need attention
After following the stories written
about the African-American
experience at ECU, I must say,
emphatically that I am
disappointed and appalled by the
way the university has dealt with
the issue.
It is obvious that there is indeed
a need to address equity and
sensitivity issues as they relate to
black students, faculty and staff.
The statements made by myself
and other black students about the
indifference they felt by some
black students here at ECU
opened a door for dialogue that the
university surprisingly chose not to
venture through. Rather than
attempting to quell the seemingly
inflammatory criticism of ECU by
Mr. Na'im Akbar, university
officials should have engaged in
conversations with students to
ascertain a greater understanding of
why they felt the way they did
about the campus climate. The fact
that discussions on how to improve
the condition of black students on
this campus as well as opening
dialogue on how the general
welfare of minority students fits
into the university's plans for
expansion during the new
millennium were not initiated by
university officials disturbed me.
The lack of a proactive approach
to this issue gave me the
impression that minority students,
particularly black students, are not
high on the priority list! It also
suggested that the university is just
interested in getting black students
to bathe in the praise for achieving
a black student demographic
reflective of the national
population, but once black students
enroll, they are treated like second-
class citizens that lack the
intellectual capacity to express
themselves articulately and broach
issues of concern to our community
with depth and clarity.
I am equally offended and
appalled at the notion that someone
may be rejected for service as an
orientation assistant because of
their personal opinion such as the
case with Akbar.
It is time for people to remove
their blindfolds and deal openly
with the state of race relations on
this campus and others across the
nation.

Privacy issues affect students too
Not
using the Internet and avoid

to prevent falling victim is
slightly paranoid and
illogical, but conveying you
innermost thoughts via email
and phone conversations is
not the brightest idea either.
The issue of privacy is not a
prominent concern for most college
students. There are a plethora of
more important things to worry
about, right? This may be true to
some degree, but people's privacy
is often violated without their ever
becoming aware of it. While this
may not seem like a major
violation, control over your personal
information, words and thoughts is
never truly valued until that control
is in the hands of another
individual.
Privacy is regarded as your
personal right. While this right is
vague and contested on many
levels, it is still observed
nonetheless. Universities display
grades under social security
numbers to protect students
privacy. Even the judicial system
goes to lengths to protect privacy
by requiring warrants for phone
tapping and investigative searches.
These measures are taken for a
reason; entities like universities
recognize and realize that
knowledge is power. This
contention sounds dramatic, but it
rings very true. No one wants their
life accessible to everyone and their
brother. Even if the information
pertaining to your life is trivial, it is
still yours. The extent of control
you have determines the extent of
your personal stability, hence the
essential reasoning behind the right
to privacy.
With this in mind, you have to
be aware that technological
advances, while providing
conveniences, also provide a risk
for invasion and abuse of
information. Email is frequently
the object of tampering by people
who are just meagerly adept with
computers. There are also people
who sit around with scanners solely
to eavesdrop on conversations held
on cordless and cellular phones.
While those who do tamper
obviously have issues far beyond
not having a life, that is a moot
point if you are the victim of their
pathetic behavior. This stuff does
happen, folks. It sounds comical,
but there are a lot of people in
Greenville that feed off other!
people's business.
How can the average person
prevent this? Besides becoming a
total eccentric recluse, there isn't
much you can do. Awareness that
these things do in fact occur is the
first step. Admitting a problem is
the first step for perpetrators of
such things. Not using the Internet
and avoid cordless and cellular
phones to prevent falling victim is
slightly paranoid and illogical, but
conveying you innermost thoughts
via email and phone conversations
is not the brightest idea either.
Privacy is fast becoming a
greater concern in areas that prove
to be far more important and far
less mundane than college students
daily lives. Many business and
corporations are embroiled in legal
battles regarding both insider and
outsider tampering. Laws that
address privacy, especially but not
exclusively, because of the Internet
and approaching major attention
because of the abuse that is
occurring.
In college, we tend to have this
false sense of security. The
operative word here is "false The
sooner this is accepted, the better.
If you know someone hacking
email or using the scanner for
phone conversation, be responsible
and tell them to stop the madness!

OPINION
Philip
Gilfus
Columnist
Aramark food actually tastes good
Now I know that everyone
and their freshman brother
has some complaint against
Aramark and its apparent
culinary tyranny, but I gave
the food and service high
marks.
Well, there I was, innocently
earing my veggie burger (motto:
"Doirt ask what's in it, and we
won't tell you") at Todd "We've
got more seats than Mendenhall"
Dining Hall, when a purple piece
of paper was suddenly flung at my
face by a Dining Services
employee. At first I thought I was
being attacked, perhaps months
and months of cleaning up after
the killer ice machines had taken
their toll. But as it turned out, I
was being handed the Official
"Write On" Dining Services
Survey Form.
Now I know that everyone and
their freshman brother has some
complaint against Aramark and its
apparent culinary tyranny, but I
gave the food and service high
marks. Oh sure, the salad is about
as fresh and new as a Macintosh,
and everyone gets to play the
lottery when getting a piece of
cake: Will it be stale today? Who
knows?! And by the way, I would
just like to point out that
apparently frosting has an
indefinite shelf life, while the
actually cake-pan lasts for about
two hours, eastern time. Some sort
of weird food physics.
But besides all those little
factors that make eating on
campus the experience it is (today
we're having chicken noodle soup,
hey, those look like the same
spaghetti noodles from yesterday,
and the week before), it still isn't
all that bad.
And what are students
complaining about anyway? I'm
sorry we couldn't get your mom to
come in and cook a homemade
dinner for you but she was�no,
wait, have to restrain myself from
making a "mom" joke. But
considering the $980, for an
average 14-meal plan, that we pay,
we're getting a lot in return, from a
clean eating area to the occasional
Tony the Tiger appearance.
I'm not saying that campus
dining is perfect f mean we can't
even get real ice cream all the time
(and for those of you who say that
it's winter and we don't need ice
cream, you've never been
embraced by the sweet, forgiving
taste of chocolate�mmm,
chocolate, drool). But Dining
Services does provide good food.
Why the pizza at Todd tastes
different from the pizza at the
Galley, I don't know.
But just chink of it all: the
waffles, grilled cheese, Lucky
Charms, omelettes, heavenly
syrupy chocolate milk, ravioli and
the list goes on. And I've heard
rumors that they serve some sort of
meat entrees. I suppose those
aren't too bad either. I guess
premium night tickets are wasted
on me.
So the next time you go to
Todd, Mendenhall, the Galley (I
recommend the cheesesticks or
breadsticks), or the Spot know that
you aren't being poisoned by the
evil, maniacal Aramark. Everyone
knows it's Pepsi.

It's that time of year again. Time to
drag out the bathing suit, prance
around in front of the mirror and
realize that all the pizza and
Budweiser you have been inhaling
since Christmas has caught up with
you in the form of a beer gut and
flabby thighs. So what do you do to
get in shape and get ready for the
beach?
Unfortunately, many students
take the wrong approach. A couple
of weeks of missing a meal here
and there, popping diet pills or
working out three times a day a
month before Spring Break '99 are
not going to solve your problem. In
order to get in shape and look
fabulous in that new bikini (or
Speedo), it takes months of
dedication and hard work.

Around this time of year, Kari
Brown, assistant director of fitness
and instructional programs at the
Student Recreation Center, usually
notices an increase in the number
of students working out. Many
people wait until the last minute
and try to get into shape in a short
amount of time or diet excessively
to lose weight fast.
"Most people come and their
primary goal is weight losssaid
Jen Mock, a fitness intern at the
Rec Center. "IPeople need to set
realistic goals for themselves and
know that they will not see
immediate results
"Going to extremes isn't worth
it Brown said. "Overall, you're
not going to feel well and you'll
lack energy and not sleep well.
Injuries can occur form overuse, not
eating well and overdoing it
Definitely not how you want to
spend your week away from school.
She suggests a more moderate
plan of action; one that can be
followed year-round to keen you
looking and teeling good all the
time. Not only will you be in shape,
but the physical activity will
increase your self-esteem, energy
and confidence. The most
effective method of exercise is
done between 30 minutes to one
hour, five to six days a week. And
if you are working out on your
own, do not hesitate to ask any of
the SRC staff for assistance.
"I usually go to the gym for
cardio boxx classes twice a week
for an hour said junior Doralissa
Griffin. "I always feel very
energized after the workout. It
definitely works out every
muscle in my body
Also offered are classes for
those who prefer a more
structured
workout. On March 2 the SRC
will launch its "Spring into Shape"
program. This program, which
runs to May 5, is for any RPM
cycling class or aerobics class
offered this semester. The drop-in
pass is only five dollars for five
classes, which is half the normal
cost. Once a student completes
the five sessions, prize drawings
and other incentives will be
offered to encourage participation.
"The RPM cycling classes are a
great way to get in shape. They
are also a great calorie bum. You
can set your own pace and really
push yourself Mock said. "Also,
men and those who feel they are
not coordinated enough for the
regular aerobics classes seem to
prefer cycling to more traditional
workouts
If you need more individual
attention, the SRC is offering a dis-
count on personal training. Four
sessions with a trainer, which can
usually cost $64, are being offered
now for only $50. This is an espe-
cially good way for beginners to get
comfortable with the equipment
and learn exercises targeted to their
specific needs.
Hitting the gym is a great way to
start a fitness program, but it is by
no means the only step to take. A
healthy diet must be
followed in order to see lasting
results. Working out with too
little calorie intake will exhaust
your body, leaving you feeling tired
and weak. Consuming too many
calories will negate those long
hours at the gym.
"You should avoid extremes in
both areas Brown said . 'The key
to looking great is to combine mod-
eration, variety and balance in both
your workout and your diet"
ECU has several resources on
nutrition and cutting calories to lose
weight in a healthy way. Student
Health Services has counselors
such as Laura Hartung, the ECU
campus nutritionist, on hand to
design diet and exercise programs
and to assess how much weight can
safely be lost. Students should set
up an appointment to learn which
methods are going to work best for
them.
"Student Health offers basic
nutrition advice and physical
assessment said Heather Zophy,
a health educator at SHS. "Height,
weight, cholesterol levels and
blood pressure measurements are
all important for overall health
So before you decide to do
something drastic like wear rubber
suits to the gym and work out one
hour three times a day to look
better at spring break, consider the
long-term consequences. All that
"hard work" may end up with you
putting your health and your week
of fun in the sun at risk. Don't
worry if you don't get that ideal
body before this year's break. Just
remember that you have a whole
year to turn that spare tire into a
six-pack for spring break 2000.
"It's never a bad time to start
Brown said.

Granny models lingerie
on highway billboard
Slogan reads, "Look
at you loving me"
LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) - As cars
speed up Route 15 at 55 mph, the
billboard zooms past: sexy pose,
woman wearing underwear - anoth-
er racy Victoria's Secret ad? Nope.
It's a 67-year-old woman in a gir-
dle, proudly showing off her age
spots and love handles. Call it art.
Buckknell University is exhibit-
ing a photograph that 32-year-old
London resident Melanie Manchot
shot of her mother, Margaret. But
it's not hanging in a gallery, where
only a few art lovers would see it.
Instead, the artwork poses as adver-
tising and looms over a highway
where every commuter, shopper
and tourist can take a fleeting peek.
"It's an unexpected encounter
explained Mark Segal, 38, who
helped with the project.
He's not kidding. Here is an
older woman who would never
make it as a Sports Illustrated
swimsuit model or a Times Square
waif. She's clearly proud. Her
hands rest behind her head.
"Look at you loving me reads
the red-lettered slogan.
"She's an empowered person.
She's not going to rise and fall on
whether she looks good in under-
wear says Stuart Horodner, direc-
tor of Bucknell An Gallery.
Ms. Manchot chose her mother
because she wanted to photograph
someone who was not the typical
model. Together, they have com-
piled a series of mostly nude pho-
tographs, 60 in all.
"What I wanted to do was work
with someone who had fallen out of
that group- simply because they
were older she said.
Not everyone agrees with the
display.
"I'm a conservative person, so I
probably won't like it said
JoAnne Campbell of Unityville,
walking outside a nearby craft store
to take a look. "Oh, I think that's
unnecessary. We don't need things

Tardy juror serves jail time
judge has history

PITTSBURGH (AP) - A juror who
overslept and showed up late for a
trial was jailed for nearly seven
hours by a judge with a history of
punishing jurors for their transgres-
sions.
Allegheny County Judge James
McGregor ordered Michael
Shelbert jailed on Friday after
Shelbert showed up nearly an hour
late, forcing the rest of the panel to
wait for him.
When asked to explain himself,
McGregor said Shelbert's reply
was: "I slept in
Shelbert, 30, of Pittsburgh was
taken to the Allegheny County Jail,
where he was processed and
released by about 9 p.m. - about 6
12 hours after McGregor issued
the order.
"Friday nights arc always busy
said a jail guard who did not give
his name.
McGregor said he only meant
for Shelbert to spend time in a
holding area at the courthouse,
then come back to his courtroom
within 15 minutes for a stem lec-
ture.
Instead, Shelbert now must
appear in McGregor's courtroom at
9 a.m. Monday to hear the judge
explain why he wanted him held.
Court personnel told the judge
that Shelbert, who was part of a
jury hearing a drunken-driving
case, had been late four days in a
row.
He arrived two hours late for
jury duty on Tuesday but was
empaneled anyway.
McGregor said Shelbert's fellow
jurors were "infuriated" by his tar-

Muggprgets run for his money with victim
ROCHELLE PARK, New Jersey
(AP) - A would-be mugger got a lot
more than he bargained for outside
a local supermarket when his vic-
tim refused to surrender her purse.
So, he had to give it back.
The 36-year old woman, who
police would not identify, was
loading groceries into her station
wagon on Tuesday when the man
jerked away her purse and dashed
to a waiting car.
His quick getaway was foiled
when the angry victim refused to
budge from the path of his vehicle. �
The woman then grabbed a wind-
shield wiper on the car and
engaged the crook in a shouting
match, police said.
The terse standoff ended when
the thug dropped the purse out the
car window and drove away.

tims should be doing police Capt.

Candy bar survivor arrested on counts of marijuana possession
FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) -
The man who gained national
attention last year by surviving four
days in a blizzard on candy bars has
pleaded guilty to a marijuana pos-
session charge.
Christian George, 30, who now
lives in California, was arrested at

outlasts
Pirates
Double OTfinishes
basketball season
Eric Couch
SENIOR WRITER
The Pirate basketball season
came to a close with a thrilling
double overtime loss in the CAA
tournament on Friday.
It took every second of regula-
tion and two overtime sessions for
the second seeded Old Dominion
Monarchs to put away the Pirates
Friday night. In a contest that
ECU coach Joe Dooley called one
of the greatest college games he
has ever been around, the Pirates
fell by a score of 65-62.
In the most dramatic game of
the year for ECU, junior forward
Neil Punt gave the Pirates a 62-61
lead with 22 seconds remaining in
the second overtime. Following an
ODU timeout, freshman point
guard Brandon Hawkins was
called for a reach-in foul with 5.7
seconds remaining. That sent the
Monarchs' guard Michael
Williams to the line where he con-
nected for two free throws and a
63-62 ODU lead. Following the
free-throws ODU stole the
inbound pass and Andre
McCullum dunked the basketball
and any hopes for ECU advanc-
ing.
"Needless to say, we were very
lucky said Jeff Capel, ODU head
coach. "Very lucky to win. I don't
know how you win games like
that. It was just guts and determi-
nation on our part
The entire game was full of
excitement and numerous lead
changes. The Pirates came out
quick on a 12-0 run to start the
game. The Monarchs crawled
back and fans saw a second half
which featured 11 lead changes.
The Pirates came from four points
down to send the game into its
first overtime and five points
down to send it to double-OT.
"We played hard through the
whole game said David Taylor,
Pirate forward. "Old Dominion
stepped up and made some plays
to give themselves a chance to
win
Evaldas Joeys continued his
usual scoring ways and tied his
career high on Friday night. Joeys
would finish with a double-double
of 22 points and a career best of 13
rebounds.
Neil Punt had another good
night on the boards by grabbing 13
rebounds and adding eight points.
Junior guard Garrett Blackwelder
would also contribute 14 points to
add to the box score and improve
from a cold night last weekend
against UNCW.
Coach Dooley had many good
things to say about both teams
after the game.
"They did some things which
enabled them to win Dooley
said. "1 wouldn't have considered
us lucky to win and I don't consid-
er them lucky.
"I thought it was one of the
best college basketball game I've
ever been around. Both teams
showed a lot of character. I am
really proud of our guys' effort
shone down on Harrington Field; the
Pirates woke up and started to rain
down the runs. Two came off of a two
RBI single by Nick Schnabel, and
three more from the bat of senior Steve
Salargo.
"I was trying to do 'Siruational
Hitting I was trying to just get the run
in the best way possible Salargo said.
"I felt comfortable and just tried to
drive the ball
By the fifth inning the runs kept on
thanks to freshman Chad Tracy's first
career home run. Then later in the fifth
not even an Ohio pitching change
could hold back Brad Simons as he
slammed a two run home run over the
fence and into traffic on Charles
Boulevard, boosting the Pirates lead by
three runs.
Ohio fought back, by scoring one in
the sixth and two more in the seventh
inning, which came off of a two run
home run by Ryan Kyes. Ohio went on
to rally again in the top of the eighth
inning off of ECU's defense scoring
three runs off of three hits.
But those Ohio runs did not go
unanswered. ECU scored three runs in
the seventh and three more in the
eighth to win the first game of the
series 14-8. Minton (2-1) took the win
for the game and Chuck Lombardy (0-
1) of Ohio took the loss.
The Pirates' Saturday afternoon
offensive clinic ended after their sec-
ond win of 14-8.
The second game was highlighted
by a fire in the trees behind the center
field wall set off allegedly by a fan's
charcoal grill. The fire was extin-
guished by the always-punctual
Greenville Fire Department.
On the other side of the fence the
Pirates began their offensive assault
with three in the first inning. But it was
the second inning when the majority of
the damage occurred. The Pirates bat-
ted around with singles from Jason
Howard and Kevin O'Sullivan, and a
three RBI double off the bat of
Schnabel followed by a pair of two RBI
home runs from bot
Salargo.

Tracy, freshman.
The Pirates scored an
tionai three runs in the fifth off of
an RBI single by Salargo and a
two RBI single thanks to Erie
Bakich.
The Pirates were able to hold
off the Bobcats for only three
more runs as they scored one in
the seventh from an RBI single
by Schnabel scoring James
Molinari. Then one in the eighth
from an RBI single by Kevin
O'Sullivan scoring Chris
Genthrup who was on second

"Travis Thompson) did a really
nice job today in the second
game, and Foye (Minton did a
good job in the first game. It was a
good day all over
The Pirates' Sunday win did
not come with the same force as
Saturday's, but they did still man-
age to pull the "W" in the rain-
shortened seven inning game.
The Pirates held the Bobcats
scoreless until the fifth inning
when Ohio's Jeff Rook sent his first of
two home runs over the fence. ECU
went on to increase their lead from one
to four in the second inning with help
from singles by Cliff Godwin and
Molinari and Schnabcl's RBI single.
ECU scored again in the third with
help from Ohio Pitcher Denny McGcc
as he threw four walks in the inning.
Unfortunately, the Pirates were only
able to score one run off of an RBI
fielders choice hit by Godwin.
Then, in the bottom of the fifth, the
Pirates managed to score two more off

The ECU men's and women's
track teams headed to two of the
country's biggest meets this week-
end.
The men traveled to Atlanta for
the USA Track and Field
Championships, while the women
made a trip up to Boston to com-
pete at the ECAG Indoor
Championships.
The Pirate men sent only their
talented 4x400 squad to the meet
in Atlanta. The team was looking
to protect its top 10 national rank-
ing and cement a spot in the
NCAA Indoor Championship
meet in March. The team of James
Alexander, Darrick Ingram,
Lawrence Ward and Damon Davis
has proven this season that it was
among the nation's most talented.
However, trouble was lurking
and it began on the first leg.
"James did not come out fast
enough said Bill Carson, ECU's
head men's track coach. "He was
thinking 'I don't want to come out
too fast and run out of gas So he

Men's Tennis suffers
second loss of season
Top players missed
at Myrtle Beach
Morgan Hefner
staff writer
The ECU men's tennis team lost
two bouts on Saturday at Myrtle
Beach; one to Coastal Carolina and
one to sickness.
The Pirates found themselves
matched up against a formidable
Coastal team and were without
three of their starting players. No.
1 Roope Kalajo, Derek Slate and
Stephan Siebenbrunner were
unable to compete due to injury
and sickness. These losses trickled
down to the other players and
became an opponent which the
Pirates could not conquer.
"These losses hurt us a lot
said Oliver Thalen, when referring
to the missing players.
Kenny Kirby reiterated by say-
ing that the losses were "A big
problem
"With the players at the top
being out, it pushes everyone else
down Kirby said.
Kirby stepped up, however, in
the No. 1 position. He played a
great match and found himself the
victor in the end.
Olivet Thalen continued his
winning streak in singles by step-
ping up to No. 2 in singles with a
win.
"I played the best match of the
day Thalen said.
His game came together and
the nerves of jumping up in the
line-up did not seem to deter him
from his goal of victory.
The other winner in singles was
Michael I Inez at the No. 4 spot.
The match came down to one
crucial doubles competition to
decide the fate of the Pirates, who
had fought all day to overcome
adversity. After dropping three of
the six singles rhatches, the Pirates
had to turn to their doubles team
for any hopes of a win. But this was
not as easy as it was earlier in the
season. Some of their best doubles
players were out, which threw off
the chemistry of the teams that did
play.
The deciding match came
down to the Pirate newcomers
team of Ilucz and Dustin Hall.
With a win here, the Pirates would
have clinched the victory without
some of their best players. Huez
and I lall fought their opponents to
the bitter end. After a tie break
was forced, both teams knew that
every point would be extremely
important. But some of the balls
did not bounce in favor of the
Pirates and they succumbed after
the tie break, thus losing the
match to Coastal Carolina.
The Pirates are hungry and
their pride is hurt going into their
next match today when they face
the Richmond Spiders at home at
2:30 p.m. The Spiders are hoping
not to get caught in their own web
because Slate and Kalajo are
expected back in the line-up. A
question mark is hovering over
Stephan Siebenbrunner who is
nursing a sore shoulder.
Some ECU tennis fans are
looking forward to the rest of the
season.
"Kirby winning at No. 1 singles
should really help his confidence
in both singles and doubles said
John Shinn, junior. "He might be
the player to watch fot the

Being a college athlete means
assuming several responsibilities
such as practicing, traveling,
studying and an overall desire to
succeed.
Nevertheless, imagine also
having to devote time to a family.
Junior forwards Evaldas Joeys
and Neil Punt of the Pirate bas-
ketball team are both familiar with
this lifestyle. Joeys has been mar-
ried for three years, and Punt has
been married since August of last
year. But regardless of their family
affairs, they both manage to play
ball.
Neil and his wife, Karen, have a
separate life off campus, one that

son, Chase.

According to Punt, his wife and
Jurga Jociene are both housewives
whose main concerns are their sons.
Although they're in charge of
domestic duties, they make sure to
show their Pirate support by
attending the ECU home basket-

Not only do their spouses stand

Spring - Break or Bust?
Well, it's that time (thank goodness)-the only descent break we get during Spring
semester. We have a whole entire week to do whatever our hearts desire, right?
Well-this week can be a real break or bust, depending on how we spend our time.
Here is what I'm talking about:
Let's look at some of the things that we may encounter over the break.
1) Sleep: We can either do a lot of relaxing and get caught up on our sleep, or we
can choose to stay up late and get even further behind than we are now. Also,
remember that for those of us who will be traveling-traveling usually wears you
out (aside from the sleep issue).
2) Work: Now some of us need some green in our wallet so, this may be a good
time to get ahead in the money area. We can also work on school projects for our
classes. Just remember this is our break, so "all work and no play" should NOT
be the motto we follow this week.
3) Alcohol: Of course abstaining from use is certainly the healthiest thing to do.
For those of us (who are of age, of course) who do choose to use, remember the
first thing that a drink does is alter our judgment. This can cause us to engage in
behaviors that we typically would not do, which could lead to consequences that
we'll never get over. (We've all heard of the term "Beer Goggles"). When you do
chose to drink, remember MODERATION is the key, and always have a desig-
nated driver.
4) Sunning: Lying out in the sun can be very relaxing. Just remember the conse-
quences, though: sunburncancerenough said. The safest time to be out in the
sun is before 10:00 AM and after 3:00 PM.
5) Body Art: Many of us already have some type of body art (piercing, tattoo,
etc.) Spring Break always provides an outlet for this type of "accessorizing
behavior Be sure that if you do go this route that you are sober. Again, some of
these things cannot be removed once they're on your body. Alsq, be sure to go to
a place that is certified in body art. Check out the facility and make sure it is san-
itary, too.
- i
O.KEnough of the babblingJust some food for thought. Enjoy your break and
remain healthy!
A Non-traditional Break
For many ECU students Spring Break means sun and fun in destinations South. But for
others it's a time to catch their breath. Over 5,000 ECU students are considered "non-
traditional That means they are not the typical 18-22-year-old, single college student.
Many non-traditional students have a family, job, or community responsibilities besides
their academic course load or internshippracticum requirements. For these folks a week
without class may mean an opportunity to spend some time with their spouse or children,
catch up on housework, and save some gas money. As one non-traditional student says,
"I'm hoping to have one afternoon where I can catch a nap and see a little bit of the
Rosie O'Donnell Show A trip to Cancuh just doesn't fit into the picture.
Whatever Spring Break brings for you, may you return refreshed, happy, and healthy!

Joe Student
Learns His Lesson
Last year's Spring Break was a disaster! By the time it was over, all I had to
remember Spring Break by was a Georgia speeding ticket, an infected tattoo of
the name Traci (I still don't even remember who Traci is), a sunburn, and alcohol
poisoning; not exactly the mementos you would want in your scrapbook. This
year I have got to do something different
First, I have picked up some information on Safe Spring Break and it has some
great tips to help me avoid some of last year's problems.
Always keep someone at home advised of where you are staying and when you
are traveling. Check in before and after the drive.
Use sunscreen to avoid overexposure to harmful rays, especially during peak
hours.
Make sure you lock your hotel room door, even if you are just going down the
hall.
Never let your drink leave your possession and don't accept drinks from
strangers.
Be socially and sexually responsible, and be a friend. Don't let your
companions do something they may regret later.
Drink in moderation, and never drink and drive.
If I had kept these things in mind last year, I could have avoided some major
headaches!
This year my sister Joanne is doing something called Alternative Spring break.
She and a group of ECU students are going to Atlanta to do community service
projects for the week. This sounds like a great way to stay out of trouble and do
something that can be fun and help others at the same time.
Is it possible that I am actually getting the hang of this "responsibility" thing?
Did You Know
In a study of women ages 55-69, those who consumed whole grains for at least
three of their daily complex-carbohydrate servings were 30 less likely to die
of a heart attack than those who averaged less than one serving of whole grains
per day.
Whole grains have more nutrients, including vitamin E and magnesium, and
they contain more photochemicals that act as antioxidants. In addition they
have more phytoestrogens, which are plant hormones that are thought to play a
role in fighting off chronic diseases.

-To increase your whole-grain consumption, try making sandwiches with
P whole-grain bread and choosing whole-grain cereals for breakfast.
