manager dismissed
Amy Wagner
ASSISTANT NKWS EDITOR
An appeal contesting his dismissal
has been filed by the former
Oeneral Manager of WZMB.
Marc Senary, was fired on March
4 by Media Board chairperson
Raymond McGill for failing to
keep his office hours. Me request-
ed that the Media Board and Paul
Wright, the Media Board adviser,
review this decision in their next
meeting. According to Schatz, the
meeting was closed and they
would not release the minutes to
him. The dismissal was upheld at
this meeting.
McGill would not comment on
the board's decision, but said that
Schatz had every right to appeal.
"It's every student's right to
appeal any decisions made by a
student-led board said McGill.
Schatz, who has worked for
WZMB for three years, rising to
the position of general manager,
appealed the ruling to Dr. Alfred
Matthews, vice chancellor of
Student Life.
According to Schatz's dismissal
letter, the Media Board dismissed
him from his position because he
did not maintain his office hours.
Schatz admits to missing his office
hours on three occasions.

special assistant to the VCAA for
information resources, ECU Virtual
University will include virtual class-
rooms, exams, financial services,
library research and office visits
with professors.
VVatkins said that the option
should be up and running next fall,
but there is "no guarantee because
they have to tie all the loose ends
I Ie also said that there are already a
lot of class supplements up and run-
ning.
"We're actually hoping to get it
ready before fall semester so that
professors will have enough time to
become familiar with the program
and get their information up before
classes actually start said Watkins.
Watkins said he did not know
exactly how many classes will be
available through the Virtual
University.
"It depends on how many facul-
ty members want to get involved
and how students respond to it
said Watkins.
ECU is planning to purchase a
license to use a program called
Courselnfo from Blackboard, Inc.
Courselnfo will help standardize
on-line courses and "help to simpli-
fy things said Watkins. It will also
provide a template for instructors
who feel less than confident about
their computer capabilities.
Other colleges in the University
of North Carolina System already
have some of these capabilities,
including NC State.
"I take an on-line class right in
my dorm room said Cameron
Schwartz, NC State freshman. "It's
not any easier than a regular class
that you actually attend, but it is
more convenient
Some non-traditional students
are very excited about the Virtual
University.
"I'd love to take classes on-line
said Cindy Targy, a non-traditional
student and mother of two. " I feel
out of place in some of my classes
because I'm so much older than the
other students
"The ability to take classes
online would be a great help to me
and my busy schedule said
sophomore Michael Smith. "I could
use the new-found time to pursue
other ventures in college such as
my work and hobbies. My roomate
is taking a class over the internet
through ECU now and he only
dedicates 30-45 minutes a day to it
whereas the traditional class would
take one hour to one hour and IS
minutes to cover the same thing

It's that time of year again. Uncle
Sam is knocking on doors�just in
time to collect his annual taxes.
However, starting this year stu-
dents or their parents can feel less
of a sting in their pockets with the
help of either of two new educa-
tion related tax credits. A new tax
deduction this year also reduces
interest on student loans. All of
these credits are due to the new
Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997,
passed by Congress and signed
into law by the president.
The first of the new deductions
is called the HOPE Credit for
undergraduates. This tax credit
can equal up to $1,500 per student
per year for the first two years of
post-secondary education. But,
according to the IRS, this credit
doesn't apply to graduate and pro-
fessional level programs and can't
be used by a student convicted of
a felony drug offense.
An example of benefits would
look something like this: If a stu-
dent's parents' gross income is
$70,000 parents claim one student
in their second year of college on
their taxes and would normally pay
$4,300 in 1998 for tuition costs.
But, with the HOPE credit, 100
percent of the first $1,000 plus 50
percent of the next $1,000 paid for

Meters record negative time
Students not charged
for extra minutes
James Poe
staff writer
Many students say they are
resigned to the fact that parking
meters on campus are a part of uni-
versity life.
On some campus meters nega-
tive time is measured. The meters
begin measuring negative time
after the time that was paid for runs
out. It stops when more money is
put in.
According to Johnnie Eastwood,
external operations manager for
Parking and Traffic Services, offi-
cials are only aware of six meters
that record negative time. These
meters are near the financial aid
office. East wood said that the
department have plans to conduct a
field study to determine which
meters have the capability to record
negative time.
Eastwood said he believes that
this function is in everyone's best
interest.
However, due to
the confusion that
negative time has
caused, there will
be no more
meters that
record negative
time installed in
the future.
"We would rather have people
parking the right way and (Parking
and Traffic Services) earning only
25 cents than people parking ille-
gally and getting the fine amount
Eastwood said.

Earth Day is known as the one day
of the year when people take time
to think about the environmental
well-being of our planet.
Greenville, however, is taking an
entire week to celebrate, clean up
and honor Mother Earth.
April 17-25 has been designated
Earth Week in Greenville, even
though the city has not consistently
celebrated the environmental holi-
day in the past

Site of 1993 shooting
rampage reopens after
renovation
FAYETTEVILLE (AP) - Luigi's,
the site of a 1993 shooting rampage
in which four people died, has
reopened after a three-month reno-
vation.
Kenneth Junior French entered
the restaurant on Aug. 6, 1993 and
killed owners Pete and Ethel
Parrous and customers Wesley
Cover and James Kidd.
Eight others were wounded in
the 20-minute shotgun attack.
French is serving four life sentences
plus 35 years at Raleigh's Central
Prison.
The recent work is the first
major renovation done to the 69-
year-old restaurant since the shoot-
ings, said Linda Parrous, the
Parrous' daughter and current co-
owner.
Deer collide with
commuter plane
KINSTON, N.C. (AP) - A com-
muter plane speeding toward take-
off at a rural airport slammed into a
doe and two fawns, damaging the
plane and killing the animals.
None of the 10 passengers or
crew aboard the 19-seat USAirways
Express propeller plane was injured
in the collision, which occurred just
before dawn Thursday at the air-
port about 70 miles southeast of
Raleigh.
The deer damaged the plane's
right wheel and engine, forcing can-
cellation of the Charlotte-bound
flight.
The deer apparently wandered
onto the runway after clearing a 6-
foot fence that separates the airport
from nearby woods.
Woman gets 40 years
for murdering
boyfriend's daughter
PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) - A
woman who fatally beat her
boyfriend's 2 12-year-old daughter
while he was at work has been sen-
tenced to 40 years in prison.
Tanya Drummond, 22, of
Portsmouth was convicted Jan. 29
of first-degree murder in the death
of Benita Godley a year earlier.
A medical examiner testified
during her January trial that she
found 52 bruises on Benita's body,
about 10 on her forehead, cheek
and chin.
Prosecutors said the child died
was beaten after her father, Thomas
Boone, left Benita in Ms.
Drummond's care in the motel
room they shared and went to work
Jan. 13,1998. Boone testified at trial
that Ms. Drummond was angry
after they fought before he left for
work that night.
Two indicted for
criminally negligent
homicide after crash
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -
Two Chattanooga women have
been indicted for criminally negli-
gent homicide following an acci-
dent that killed an unrestrained
child in their car in November.
It's the first time in Hamilton
County that homicide charges have
been brought against adults in the
death of a child under the child
restraint law, authorities said.
In the Nov. 9 wreck, 2-year-old
Carton Bowers Jr. was sitting in his
mother's lap in the front seat and
was crushed between her and the
airbags. He died two days later.
The toddler's mother, Latrecc
Jones, 18, and the car's driver,
Latitia D. Abernathy, 26, now face
up to six years in prison.
The driver of the other car
involved in the wreck was convict-
ed of failure to yield, a misde-

Rwandan Hutu leader
asks for forgiveness
KIGALI, Rwanda (AP) - Rwanda's
Hutu prime minister has asked that
his party be forgiven for its role in
the 1994 genocide, state-run Radio
Rwanda reported.
Prime Minister Pierre-Celestin
Rwigema asked Saturday that his
Republican Democratic Movement
be forgiven "for the divisive ideolo-
gy of some of its leaders who led
the 1994 genocide and massacres
the radio said.
At ceremonies last week com-
memorating the fifth anniversary of
the genocide, President Pasteur
Bizimungu called on Rwanda to
unite in condemning the killings.
A statement from Rwigema's
Hutu-dominated party said the
genocide conflicted with the party's
goal of democracy, according to the
radio. The party condemned all of
its leaders who preached divisive-
ness, the statement said.
Mbeki's son
killed by apartheid
security forces
JOHANNESBURG South Africa
(AP) The only child of South
Africa's likely next president disap-
peared in 1981 and was presumably
killed by apartheid security forces,
reports said Sunday.
Deputy President Thabo
Mbeki's spokesman acknowledged
that the man expected to succeed
Nelson Mandela as president had a
son bom out of wedlock when he
was 16 but denied the child's exis-
tence was a secret.
"To refer to it as a secret is mere-
ly to sensationalize a matter that is
already in the public domain said
spokesman Ronnie Mamoepa.
Mamoepa said the disappear-
ance in 1981 of the young man,
named Kwanda, has been referred
to the Truth and Reconciliation
Commission, which is investigating

Convicted in 11
murders, NG seeks
jury's mercy
SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) A seri-
al killer who managed to delay his
conviction in 11 murders for 14
years now seeks to convince a jury
that he should spend the rest of his
life in prison rather than be put to
death.
Lawyers for Charles Ng, a
Hong Kong native and veteran of
the U.S. Marine Corps, will offer
mitigating evidence starting
Monday with testimony from
mental health professionals, jailers
and family members.
Deputy Public Defender
William Kelley will seek to counter
the heart-wrenching accounts
given by victims' families to jurors
during the penalty phase of the
trial, which determines whether
Ng will receive death by injection
or life in prison without parole.
Kelley said he will spend a
week calling witnesses and
promised "a couple of surprises
but declined to give details.
Members of Ng's family are
expected to testify for the first
time.

According to Eastwood, the parking
meters only earn $5,500-$6,000 dol-
lars during the fall and spring
semesters. In addition, Eastwood
said that all of the towing money
goes to the towing contractors.
WZMB
continued from page I
According to Schatz, the first time
he did not keep his office hours was
because of illness. The second time
he missed office hours was when he
was on live remote for WZMB, and
the third time he simply missed, he
said. But, he maintains that he
informed Wright of this and made
the hours up that same day.
Schatz was also tardy four times,
but said this was because the secre-
tary who keeps track of this was not
aware he changed his office hours,
even though he had posted it on his
door.
"I generally put in 20-30 hours at
the station a week anyway said
Schatz. "To fire me for that seems
a bit extreme
Schatz said he appealed because
he felt the Media Board did not fol-
low proper guidelines stated in the
Media Board operations manual.
"They can't just make up the
rules as they go along said Schatz.
Tax

tuition can be deducted. These par-
ents could claim $1,500 credit, the
maximum amount to be saved.
Senior biology major, Elish
Lewis, said she thinks the new
deductions are great. She said that
she will not be affected but her par-
ents will. The new deductions can
only be claimed by the parent or the
student � not by both. If the stu-
dent was claimed as a dependent on
the parent's tax returns, the student
cannot claim the tax credit.
The amount of each credit is
determined by the amount paid for
tuition and related expenses or from
the amount of the parent's modified
adjusted gross income. Only low to
middle class families benefit from
this deduction.
According to Schatz, the board
has to give three documented warn-
ings before dismissing an employ-
ee. Schatz said that he only
received a written, final warning.
Schatz said that Wright sent a
copy of a final warning letter to
Matthews, but that this was the first
time he had seen it
"It was basically my word against
his Wright's said Schatz.
Wright said that he did send the
letter to Schatz, but that he didn't
have anything to do with Schatz's
dismissal.
'The board hired him, therefore
the board is the only one that can
take action said Wright.
Matthews would not comment
on his decision to deny Schatz's
appeal.
"I think the media board doesn't
know what they're doing said
Schatz. "The students that are
there arc supposed to represent the
students' best interest in mind, but
they didn't even know the rulesin
their own operation manual '
Credits are phased out for modi-
fied adjusted gross income above
$40,000 and eliminated completely
for modified AGI over $50,000.
The second tax credit is the
Lifetime Learning Credit, which is
up to $1,000 per year. This credir is
for expenses paid after June 30,
1998 for academic periods begin-
ning after that date. The credit
applies to undergraduate, graduate
level and professional degree cours-
es. If qualified, the student's credit
equals 20 percent of the post-sec-
ondary tuition and fees you pay
each year.
Students can't take both credits
at once. If you need more informa-
tion on these credits, contact your
local IRS office or download tax
forms and booklets from the IRS
home page at www.irs.gov.

Congress ready to

WASHINGTON (AP) On break
since the early days of airstrikes in
Yugoslavia, the Republican-con-

this week headed toward a vigorous
debate over President Clinton's
policy and the possible use of
American ground troops.
"It is war, and only the Congress
can declare war Rep. Tom
Campbell, R-Calif wrote House
Speaker Dennis Hasten recently,
pledging to force the issue onto the
floor if the leadership will not
schedule it.
Campbell is working on two dia-
metrically opposed bills to trigger
the debate. One is a formal declara-
tion of war against Yugoslavia,
while the other would ban the use
of American military resources in
the fighting.
In the Senate, Sen. John
McCain, R-Ariz who consistently
has urged Clinton to leave open the
possibility of ground troops, says,
"It ought to be debated and voted

to introduce legislation, according
to an aide.
While Campbell opposes
American military participation and
McCain says his "goal is victory
the two men underscore a wide-
spread belief that lawmakers
should have a voice in a fight that
has changed dramatically since
they left town.
Senators returning to
Washington "will want to address
this on the floor said John
Czwartacki, a spokesman for
Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott.
McCain and several other law-
makers from both parties wrote
Clinton on Friday that it would be
"prudent for the U.S. to urge
NATO to plan for additional mili-
tary missions, including the use of
ground forces
The lawmakers, who traveled
recently to Europe with Defense
Secretary William Cohen, said the
American public "needs to be bet-
ter prepared for the likelihood of
Alliance casualties
Lott generally has refrained
from speaking out about the war
thus far, and the Mississippi
Republican has not made plans to
bring legislation to the Senate floor,
Czwartacki said.
Hasten, R-Ill sent an aide to
talk with Campell last week, but
he, too, has no immediate plans to
allow legislation onto the House
floor. Hasten also has said little
publicly on the topic.
One Republican source, who
spoke on condition of anonymity,
said that on Hasten's recent trip to
Europe, the speaker indicated a
"willingness to work with the pres-
ident if the president wants to con-
sider using ground troops
Clinton has ruled out ground
troops, and the issue had scarcely
surfaced two weeks ago when
Congress still was in town. Since
lawmakers left, there has been an
enormous flow of refugees from
Kosovo, three American service-
men have been captured by
Yugoslav forces and NATO has
widened its bombing campaign
into Belgrade.

OPINION!
Phillip
Gilfus
Episcopalian sets record straight
sie you nappy witn your liter Do
you feel like you're missing some-
thing? Would you like to be saved?
Have I started scaring you yet?
As I was sitting in my room the
other day, studying intently for a
biology test (and not just itemizing
my Elvis collection), I began to
think about my religion. And I've
decided it's high time I started con-
verting people to it.
Don't worry, I'm not going to
begin preaching dogma. I won't
starting screaming at people and
banishing them to helL.not today
anyway. No, what I'm going to do is
tell everyone how they can become
king or queen of England.
What does the throne of Great
Britain have to do with my church?
Plenty. I belong to the Episcopal
church, a.k.a. the Anglican church,
a.k.a. the Church of England. And
thanks to a seventeenth century
law called the Act of Succession
and the 1689 English Bill of Rights,
only members of the Church of
England ("Number one in divorces
since 1533) can be crowned as
monarchs (the actual document
just says Protestants, but they real-
ly just mean Anglicans. It's an inter-
pretive thing). That's right! With
one baptism and a confirmation,
you too can have several palaces,
the crown jewels and numerous
tabloid articles written about you!
Oh sure, there's something "dis-
;eriminatory" about a Christian
country being ruled by one denom-
ination. Look, the Catholics had
their turn with the world and lost it,
and the Protestants controlled
America in the beginning with
their theocracies, but then they
started hanging witches, and the
whole thing just went downhill
from there. That's another thing,
Episcopalianism is spreading more
and more throughout the world
everyday. And by the world, I mean
Africa.
Okay, I know some people out
there in Irate Reader Land might
be saying, "What the dilly, yo?!
The Episcopal church is different
from the Anglican church! What
the heck are you trying to pull here,
ya crazy shmackdaddy?
Okay, brief history lesson. When
America was still nice and shiny,
hence the "New World Anglicans
and some other nameless groups of
people came here to settle. Then in
1776, some guys decided that it was
time to tell King George where he
could mail his Stamp Act. So during
the War of American
Independence, us Anglicans start-
ed to worry and had to change
things around because of this situa-
tion caused by those crazy non-
Anglicans:
Non-Anglican Minuteman:
"Hey, there is a member of the
Anglican church, a.ka. the Church
of England. They must be a Tory, a
historical term which refers to
British sympathizers. Quick, let's
stick him with our bayonets
Quick-Thinking
AnglicanWait! I'm not an
Anglicaner, I'm, uh. Catholic
N-A MA Catholic! Us
Americans have no tolerance for
Catholics during this time period!
Attack
Q-T A: "Did I say Catholic?! I
meant I'm, uh, Episcopalian! It
means I'm Anglican, except for
the fact that I'm not
N-A MOh, well, that's all
right then. Hey guys, let's go lose
our native accents and invent the
Boston accent
So, besides for a name change,
the fact that we are not headed by
the British monarch, our different,
prayer books and less attractive
churches, being Episcopal means
you are Anglican. It's like having
dual citizenship!
Also, I would like to dispel the
myth that Episcopalians are
Protestants. I know that's what
"The Man" would like us to
believe, but it's completely
untrue. To put it in simple terms,
think of us as Catholicism's cousin
that they don't like to talk about
(though they did let us into heav-
en. Thanks, guys!). Our motto is:
"All the pomp and circumstance
of Catholicism, without all the
guilt Besides, who would win in
a fight: Martin Luther or King
Henry VIII? I rest my case.
To put it all into perspective, the
defining moment of being
Episcopalian came to me during
last year's East Carolina Diocese
Convention. We were at the
Holiday Inn-Bordeaux, in my
hometown Fayctteville, when I
saw a female minister chugging
back a long-necked Bud. Oh sure,
there's way more to the denomina-
tion, but I think that says it all.
OPINION
. Look around, smell that airahh. Lovely Earth is so good to us, especially now with the beauti-
ful weather we have had lately. Gee, wouldn't it be swell if we humans could give something back
in return? Well you can: Here's how to order.

" or "Hey man, sorry about throwing all of those cigarette butts on the ground when I should have
used an ashtray
Well, ifyou care to partake, Greenville has planned a number ofevents to celebrate Earth Week.
The events include a Tar River Canoe and Kayak clean-up, a March for the Parks Fund Raiser,
: and talks by local experts on how to better your care for the Earth. These events can help you
�I'relieve that guilty conscious you have because you do not treat the Earth as well as we all do dur-
ing Earth Week.

perhaps we all should take something else away from this week. Why do we set aside only one
S week to educate the human race on taking care of our beloved planet? Wouldn't it be wiser to
have an Earth Century where we all are strictly reminded for the next 100 years to do good for
. the one thing that provides us with life as we know it? It seems that people are only aware of lit-
"vter and other Earthly pollutants during this week.
t'TEC hopes that you grace the activities that have been planned for Greenville's Earth Week. If
� you go, you might actually learn something that you can take to heart and use to take better care
� of the Earth. It is crucial that whatever you do learn from the activities during Earth Week, you
; still apply them to your everyday lifc.not only one small week out of the year. So go to the Earth
� Week activities and help contribute to a clean and healthy environment for the future.

Parents deserve love, attention
Now is the time where their
role in our lives begins to
change, and with change brings
adjustment that may or may
not be easy for us but also very
much for our parents.
Parents prove to be a student's
greatest asset, and ironically, a stu-
dent's greatest liability. While par-
ents offer financial and emotional
support, they often serve as con-
stant reminders of "things I should
be doing and the person I need to
become This can be very irritat-
ing as their values somewhat con-
tradict the actions and activities
that have become synonymous
with our college lifestyle.
Nevertheless, while their expecta-
tions seem high and their encour-
aging words seem nagging, as the
beneficiaries of a great portion of
the wealth they have worked so
hard to accumulate, there is an
undeniable responsibility to make
them proud of us.
It is easy to look back on high
school years and early college years
and see the flaws of their parenting
and then resent them for what they
could have or "thriiiM hav" Hone.
Many people have divorced par-
ents, neglectful parents, critical
parents, dysfunctional parents, one
parent and perhaps no parents at
all. These situations skew our view
of parents as we associate their mis-
takes with the quality of people
they are and even worse associate
their shortcomings as a shortcom-
ing of love for their children.
These assumptions are almost
always terribly inaccurate.
A hard part of "growing up" is real-
izing that our parents are people
and that they can't be perfect. As
we reach adulthood, we see how
impossible perfection is and that
expecting perfection from anyone
including our friends, our
boyfriends and girlfriends, our
employers and our teachers will
only lead to disappointment. As
comfortable as it is to put our par-
ents on a pedestal, it is unrealistic
and will lead to further disappoint-
ment.
Now is the time where their role in
our lives begins to change, and with
change brings adjustment that may
or may not be easy for us but also
very much for our parents. It is
frustrating for them to see our mis-
takes and get hurt and not be able
to be here or tell us what to do.
This is when we learn that our par-
ents can't solve everything for us
and they don't always have an
answer. As our relationship with
them evolves, we see things and
realize things about them that are
unsettling at times because they
reveal their mistakes and vulnera-
bilities as we are shaping the rest of
our lives.
One thing that can never be ques-
tioned or doubted is their love for
us no matter what has occurred or is
occurring right now. A parent's love
is one of the most unconditional
and purest loves that we will ever
know and receive. Even though
wc are now seeing them different-
ly, that does not change their feel-
ings. Despite our busy schedules,
we should make time to call, e-mail
or write them every once in a while
to thank them or just let them
know we appreciate them. It
sounds lame, but it means more to
them then we could possibly imag-
ine. Besides, no matter how much
it makes us cringe, we will be a lot
like them one day.

a limb here, is it the fact that you
are just being polite?
Hopefully, it's the last one. I
have noticed that ever since I've
gotten in college, the populous has
gotten a lot more polite. I mean,
back when I was attending East
Wake High School (go Trojans!),
the most polite thing one could see
would be when in the lunch line
the people in front of you would
punch you in the stomach instead
of the crotch. This usually meant
that they liked you, and ifyou ever
had trouble with anyone else, they
would gladly help you punch that
person in the crotch. (On a quick
note, the mascot of East Wake
High School was not the "Trojans
I believe it may have been the
"Shieks the "Ramses or quite
possibly the "Magnums").
Before that, there was middle
school. I attended the well-known
Degrasi Junior High, and, dude, it
sucked. Their idea of being polite
was pulling pony tails, snapping
training bra straps and saying things
like "Yo, train-track teeth and
"Yo, your mouth looks like it has
train tracks in it And you should
have heard what they would say to
people with braces. It was shame-
ful.
And even before that, there was
elementary school. Politeness was-
n't even a word back then, probably
because the most we could handle
was two syllables. Still, rudeness
ran rampant among the K-5th
grades. Lil' Billy Spankings would
always throw cookies during snack
time, Lil' Mildred Crackers would
wet herself after story time, and
Lit' Ryan Kennemur would tie
other kids shoelaces together dur-
ing nap time, much to the delight
of his teacher, Mr. Christopher
Walkcn.
I guess what I'm trying to say is
that I'm glad to finally be in an
atmosphere that, though some- �
times sexist, racist and loads of
other -ist words, is capable of being
kind and courteous. The worst tor-
ment I've had lately came when I
wore my "Latino Worid Order" t-
shirt. We can only hope that one
day Kosovo will take note of
Greenville's behavior and become
a civil and just society. Until then,
they really need a good punch in
the crotch.

Students speak
out on common habit
Erica Sikes
staff writer
In college, students develop habits.
Some are good, such as studying in
advance for a midterm; others take
up smoking.
It's something we deal with
everyday while walking through
the Wright Plaza and even at a
club downtown. Do your eyes get
irritated or are you immune to it?
Even with new laws banning
smoking within various depart-
ment stores, there still remain
some public places that have areas
designated for smokers. Golden
East Crossing Mall in Rocky
Mount is a prime example of this.
Near the entrance, there is a des-
ignated area where smokers can
leisurely sit down and light up a
cigarette.
This may be the case in some
malls, but if you walk into any
Target Store with a lit cigarette,
you will hear, "Attention Target
guests, North Carolina State law
prohibits smoking in a retail estab-
lishment�blah, blah, blah
According to a local Target
store manager. Target as a corpora-
tion took a stand a few years ago,
and ceased the distribution of all
tobacco products in an attempt to
make all nation-wide Targets
smoke-free. Targets' main goal is to
make the store comfortable for all
its guests.
Some students are in agreement
with this public policy and are irri-
tated at the fact that they are con-
stantly plagued by smoke when
they enter a public place.
"The choice to smoke is every
person's right, but do they have to
do it around me?" said Alan Riggs,
an ECU sophomore.
According to the American
Heart Association, American Lung
Association, and American Cancer
Society, smoking raises the risk of
cancer and other smoking-relatcd
diseases among the non-smoking
children, co-workers, friends, and
spouses of smokers.
With the pressure that college
students face, smoking relieves
those stresses with the nicotine that
is contained in the cigarette, which
is tobacco's main mood-altering
chemical. Nicotine is a stimulant
Top five cigarett
�sen among students
that speeds the flow of
chemicals in the brain
and also raises blood
pressure and heart rate.
"Smoking, for me,
relieves a lot of tension
and stress said Steve
Dover, an ECU sopho-
more.
"Even though smok-
ing is bad for people,
college students can
sometimes quickly take
on the habit said Mary
Beth Fleming, an ECU
freshman. "I for one, am
a smoker, and I know
it's bad, but it still
relieves the stress
The addiction is
quite easy to explain.
Smoking is a learned
behavior and external "cues" like
an exam that you forgot to study for
or a $1.57 bank balance can trigger
the need for a cigarette. College
students face these "cues" on a
daily basis and once you start, those
"cues" make it very difficult to
stop. When a smoker attempts to
quit smoking, withdrawal symp-
toms such as tension, depression
and irritability also make the task
feel like a job.
According to health educator
Heather Zophy, smoking is respon-
sible for one in five deaths in
America. Some of the catastrophic
diseases associated with oathologi-

PHILLIP GlLFLS
SENIOR WRITER
Many students at ECU may wish to
get involved in campus organiza-
tions, but many ask themselves:
what clubs are out there? Are there
any that fit my interests?
With over 200 clubs and organi-
zations, ECU offers something for
every student. Finding one can be
easy, even if all clubs are not wide-
ly known.
"There are many clubs here at
ECU that many people don't know
about said Jim Sturm, director of
Student Leadership Development.
.Clubs can be started by anyone.
All that is required for university
recognition is getting a faculty-
adviser for the organization and cre-
ating a club constitution to be
turned in to the Student
Leadership office.
"Clubs that register get the use
of campus facilities, receive the stu-
dent leadership newsletter, get a
mailbox in the student leadership
office and are placed in our directo-
ry Sturm said.
Three examples of special inter-
est campus clubs are the ECU
School of Anything Goes-Anime
(SAGA), the ECU Subunit of the
American Fisheries Society and
National Society of Pershing Rifles.
SAGA, one film club on campus,
is entering its third year of opera-
tion.

cal smokers are heart disease,
emphysema and lung cancer.
"90 percent of lung cancer
deaths are due to cigarette smok-
ing Zophy said. "And there is
only a 25 percent survival rate for
those who are diagnosed
Other health complications
include Artery sclerosis, which is
the hardening of the arteries, and
Atherosclerosis, which arc fatty
deposits that impedes blood flow.
The obvious health risks should
make the potential smoker think
twice about starting and the current
smoker want to quit. Even though
it is difficult, there are ways to
dodge the withdrawal symptoms
and urges to smoke. One method is
to substitute. Find something to
snack on or chew gum. Drink plen-
ty of water. Caffeine found in soft
drinks can trigger tobacco cravings.
Keep yourself occupied and enter-
tained. "An idle mind is the devil's
playground Instead of smoking,
go to the Rec Center and work out.
Do your homework. There are
plenty of campus activities to get
involved in so that you can kick
that deadly habit.

Bug disguises itself as
an 'important message
NEW YORK (AP) - E-mail sys-
tems at thousands of companies
and government agencies around
the country were swamped
Monday by a cunning virus called
"Melissa" that disguises itself as an
"important message" from a friend.
The virus began to show up
Friday and spread rapidly on
Monday by making computers fire
off dozens of infected e-mails.
Although the virus apparently caus-
es no permanent damage to a com-
puter, its effects were far-reaching.
In Pordand, Ore city govern-
ment slowed to a crawl. The e-mail
network at Lockheed Martin, the
aerospace company in Bethesda,
Md was overloaded.
Michael Vatis, a federal prosecu-
tor and director of the National
Infrastructure Protection Center
based at FBI headquarters, said
military and government comput-
ers were sabotaged, along with
thousands of other institutions' sys-
tems.
"It is important that computer
crime is not just dismissed as kids
fooling around Vatis said. "There
are real consequences for real peo-
ple
The FBI is investigating, he
said. Vatis would not comment on
whether investigators had any
leads, or on where the name
Melissa came from.
To make matters worse, a simi-
lar virus called Papa was discovered
Monday.
Papa is programmed to send out
even more infected e-mails than
Melissa, although it has a bug that
sometimes prevents it from work-
ing, said Srivats Sampath, general
manager of McAfee software, a
company that makes antivirus soft-
ware.
The Melissa virus comes in the
form of an e-mail, usually contain-
ing the subject line "Important
Message It appears to be from a
friend or colleague.
The body of the e-mail message
says, "Here is that document you
asked for don't show it to anyone
else" with a winking smiley face
formed by the punctuation marks
;).
"The reason this is spreading
so rapidly is that you're getting
it from people you know and
you trust
Eric Lundquist
editor in chiel ol PC Wepk magazine.
Attached to the message is a
document file. Once the user
opens that file, the virus digs into
the user's address book and sends
infected documents to the first 50
addresses.
E-mails from the Papa virus
include an attached spreadsheet
file. When the user opens that file,
the virus sends 60 infected e-mails.
"The reason this is spreading so
rapidly is that you're getting it from
people you know and you trust
said Eric Lundquist, editor in chief
of PC Week magazine. "You
should never open documents or
attachments from people you don't
know, but this is the first one you
need to be careful of opening doc-
uments from people you do know
People who get an unexpected
e-mail with the "important mes-
sage" subject line were advised to
delete it immediately and not open
the message.
Corporate computer managers
first noticed the Melissa virus late
Friday, but it began spreading
rapidly Monday, with the start of
the work week.
Those affected include the
chemical company DuPont in
Wilmington, Del
electronics maker Honeywell
Inc. in Minneapolis; North Dakota
state
government; The Associated
Press Broadcast Services in
Washington; and
Compaq Computer Corp. in
Houston.
"It's been a significant nuisance
for us said Elaine Hinsdale, a
spokeswoman for Lockheed
Martin.
In Portland, computer managers
had to shut down an e-mail server
that supplied schedules for city
meetings and circulated docu-
ments for review.
"I can tell you that we've
become addicted to the e-mail sys-
tem said Mayor Vera Katz. "The
phone and shouting have been the
methods of communication. It has
slowed down business
She said eradicating the virus
would take at least a couple of days,
and she ordered a plan to prevent
similar problems.

day.
"My mother and father would
have a cake for me and we would
celebrate it on Feb. 28. But it was-
n't the same she said.
While today she has no qualms

"Our organization is oriented for

advisor.
This club is a subunit of the
Tidewater Chapter of the
American Fisheries Society. The
Tidewater area covers Maryland,
Virginia and North Carolina. It
deals with issues about fishery
management, fishery science and
fisherman.
"This isn't just a biology club
said Dr. John Whitehead of the
economics department. "Fishery
science, which incorporates physi-
cal science, anthropology, geology,
and other sciences, is interrelated to
idea of having a birthday once
every four years.
"It's fun. I feel kind of special
he said.
A leap year occurs every four
years when an extra day is added to
the calendar to synchronize it with
the seasons.
According to The New
Encyclopedia Britannica, the astro-
nomical year �the time taken for
the Earth to complete its orbit
around the Sun�is about 365.242
days (or 365.25 days). To account
for the odd quarter day, an extra
calendar day is added every four

and discusses issues and brings in
guest speakers. The most recent

The subunit club is looking for-

State law prohibits punctuality payoff
SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. (AP)�
There won't be a payoff for punc-
tuality any more at Slippery Rock
High School. The law simply got in
the way.
The school board Monday nixed
a program that rewards students for
good attendance with gift certifi-
cates worth up to $500.
The seven-member panel that 1
aunched the program to combat the
unusually high rate of absen-
teeism may have unwittingly bro-
ken the law, said the district's attor-
ney, Tom King.
The panel also acted separate-
ly from the school board in spend-
ing state money, another viola-
tion, King said. Only the board can
spend such money.
Students with perfect atten-
dance were eligible to enter draw-
ings for $50, $200 or $500 gift cer-
tificates which could be spent on pr
om tickets, yearbooks, class rings, g
as stations or at restaurants and stor
es.

ceived your ideas were, we can't all

Over many centuries, the dif-

UNFORTUNATELi; TfflS IS WHERE PEOPLE ARE
PUTTING TOO MANY RETIREMENT DOLLARS.
Every year, a lot of people make a
huge mistake on their taxes.
They wind up sending Uncle Sam
money they could be saving for
retirement.
Fortunately, that's a mistake you
can avoid with SRAs�tax-deferred
annuities from TIAA-CREF. SRAs not
only ease your current tax bite, they
offer an easy way to build retirement
income �especially for the "extras"
that your pension and Social Security
benefits may not cover. Because your
contributions are made in pretax
dollars, you pay less in taxes now. And
since earnings on your SRAs are tax
deferred, your money works even
harder for you.
Today, we offer other before- and
after-tax financial solutions, including
IRAs and mutual funds. They're
backed by the same investment exper-
tise, low expenses, and personal
service that have made TIAA-CREF
the choice of Americas educational and
research community.
Why write off the chance for a
more rewarding retirement? Stop by
your benefits office or call us at

Salargo leads nationally ranked Pirates
Salargo knows how to
bring crowd to feet
Blaise Denils
senior iiit1i
Have you ever wondered what it
feels like to hit the winning home
run in the bottom of the ninth
before a sold-out crowd? If so, just
ask Steve Salargo, senior outfielder
for the Pirate baseball team.
Earlier this season Salargo
bashed the winning home run over
the wall at Harrington field against
CAA for William and Mary and
brought the hometown crowd to its
fceL This outstanding performance
is only one of many Salargo plays
that have delighted the crowd and
helped the ECU baseball team
break back into the top 25 after
nearly a decade.
"When I hit that ball against
William and Mary my whole body
went numb said Salargo. "You see
the ball traveling up into the lights
and the outfielders running toward
the fence and it's just incredible.
There is nothing like it in the
world
Salargo, who is a hometown hero
raised in Greenville, has been
selected to the All-CAA team for
the past two seasons. After an
impressive '98 season, Salargo
ranked second in at-bats (239), runs
scored (51) and RBI (44) for the
Pirates. He has started every game
since coming to ECU as a freshman
in 1996. Salargo also holds the
school records for hits, home runs
and RBI in a season at Beddington,
his high school alma mater in
Wilson, N.C.
Baseball was introduced to
Salargo at a young age and his fam-
ily has always played a huge role in
his athletic career. His brother Sam,
a freshman on the Pirate team, was
Salargo's earliest teammate. His
father played the game and his
mother provided support and
encouragement from the first day.
He says his mother has been to
every game this season and to about
95 percent of the games in his
entire life.
"My brother and I always played
backyard baseball said Salargo.
Pirate baseball takes win over VCA
ECU wins despite 60
mile an hour winds
Paul Kaplan
senior writer
The ECU baseball team traveled to
Virginia Commonwealth University
for a wet, windy and rainy weekend
of baseball. Play on Friday was sus-
pended after one inning due to rain
and 60 mile an hour winds. Play
was later resumed on Saturday and
the Pirates took the win and ended
a VCU 16 game home winning
screak and gave the Pirates their
first 7-0 CAA start in Pirate history.
The Pirates lost their second match
up against VCU in a disappointing
4-3 loss. Sunday's game was then
Canceled due to incessant rain.

where we could have won both after going 1.2

before the ECU track teams corn-
fete for conference gold next
Weekend at the CAA
Championships, they had to travel
do two smaller meets to get ready.
The ECU men's squad sent its
sprinters to Tennessee while its dis-
tance runners went to Maryland
along with the women's team.
The ECU women's team head-
ed to the Maryland Invitational
Vhere strong performances by
seniors, Michelle Clayton and
Saundra Teel sparked the Pirates
to a strong overall performance,
"the meet was one of the smaller
rneets the team will compete in
this season.
Clayton, who qualified for the
ECAC Championships, notched
wins in the shot put, which broke
Her school record set last weekend
at Duke, and the hammer. Clayton
Teel made only her second appear-
ance of the outdoor season. She has
had to miss meets because of
inclement weather and job inter-
views. Teel made up for lost time
taking second in both the high hur-
dles and the high jump.
Sophomore Rasheca Barrow
also had a fine day by winning the
100 meters in an exciting fashion.
"It was her and a girl from
Maryland said Charles Justice,
head women's track coach. "They
were neck and neck and Rasheca
just pulled away. The same thing
happened in the 200. She really
had to battle. It was a fun race to
watch
Also at the Maryland
Invitational, ECU had strong
showings by the distance squad.
The team competed in the
steeplechase, which is a rare event
in collegiate track and field. The
Maryland Invitational was the first
time most of the team had ever
competed in the event. Training for
the steeplechase posed a problem
for distance coach, Leonard
Klepack.
"We started working on hurdles,
but we don't have a water jump at
ECU. So it was on-the-job experi-
ence for them. I thought they han-
dled it real well Klepack said.
Ryan Bennett placed third fol-
lowed by Brian Beil, who placed
fourth in his first crack at the event.
David Balon finished eighth.
In the 1500, Stuart Will placed
fourth while Steve Arnold placed
sixth. In the 5000 meters Will led
the Pirates again, grabbing a second
place finish while teammate
Charlie Nickum placed fourth.
The ECU sprinters traveled to
Knoxville, Tenn. to compete in the
Sea Ray Relays. The Pirates battled
tough competition and a strong
wind that blew Friday.
"We did real good. We had a 20
mile an hour wind that blew all day.
There were also 58 runners, so it
was a big meet said Bill Carson,
head coach.
The Pirates had a frustrating
meet. Injuries wind and bad deci-
sions haunted the team. Darrick
Ingram aggravated a hip flexor
while James Alexander was hob-
bled by illness.
Darrick Ingram finished second
in the 400 meters in front of Davis
and Mike Miller, who finished
fifth and eighth respectively.
In the 400 meter intermediate
high hurdles, Lyn Stewart finished
fifth.
The disappointments and the
injuries caused Carson and the
team to head home early.
"With conference coming up
next week, we couldn't afford any
more injuries at this time Carson
said.

Spring tournament

STAFF WRITER
This past weekend, ECU women's
soccer battled the sun and the
school's top rival, N.C. State.
Method Road soccer field in
Raleigh housed the spring season
tournament that the Lady Wolfpack
assembled. The seven versus seven
small sided games brought in five
different college teams, plus one
local and one out of town club team.
These teams were then broken up
into two separate groups where
they played a minimum of three 25
minute games, allowing for only the
four top teams to advance to the
semi-finals.
Among these four teams were
two of our own. Team A and Team
B successfully made it to the semi-
finals and ended up facing off
against each other not only for brag-
ging rights but for a chance to win
the tournament.
"It's a long day, but overall we
played well said Neil Roberts,
head coach. "It's great to take two
teams and have them both make it
to the semi-finalsand then have
one move on to the final
Although Team A for ECU won
all of their games prior to the semi-
finals, making them the higher
seed, they suffered a disappointing
loss to Team B in what was one of
the most important games of the
tournament.
"We are extremely competitive
in practice and when we arc put in
actual tournament environments it
can get pretty ugly said Kim
Sandhoff, forward.
Team B, after playing the most
competitive 25 minutes of the day,
continued on to face the N.C. State
Wolfpack who had beaten out VCU
in their semi-final play.
"If we had to lose, I would at
least want it to be to our own team-
mates said Katie Moran, player for
team A. "1 just wished that they

sports
THE EAST CMOUMMN
BRISBANE, Australia (AP) -
former coach and longtime friend
Charlie Earp figures golfer Greg
Norman had "the whole world" in
his corner Monday
during the final round of the
Masters.
Thousands of Australians
arrived late for work Monday
morning after sitting in front of
television sets hoping Norman
would finally win the Masters in
his 19th attempt.
Australian gamblers emptied
their wallets on Norman overnight
Sunday night, with one agency
swamped by hundreds of big and
small bets on the Shark.
Norman was 33-1 before the
fjrst round but only 11-4 before tee-
ing off in the final round one shot
behind eventual winner Jose Maria
Qlazabal.
A Channel 9 television execu-
tive confirmed hundreds of thou-

Naseem knocks out Ingle
MANCHESTER, England (AP)
Prince Naseem Hamed knocked
out Paul Ingle in the 11th round
Saturday night to retain his WBO
featherweight title for the 12th
time.
'� Hamed totally dominated the
first eight rounds, flooring Ingle in
the first with a left hook and again
in the sixth with a left to the body.
But Hamed, who had hardly been
hjt until then, suddenly began to
look tired and vulnerable as Ingle
took charge in the ninthand 10th.
Then, 45 seconds into the 11th
round, Hamed landed a short left to
the top of Ingle's head that sent the
English challenger toppling back-
wards to end the scheduled 12-
round fight at the MEN Arena.
Hamed, who extended his
record to 32-0, with 29 knockouts,
said he may have broken his right
hand in the fight and would go to a
hospital for X-rays.
Ingle, the former European and
Commonwealth champion, lost for
the first time after 21 wins.
Hamed weighed 126 pounds,
one-half pound more than Ingle.
For the most part, Hamed
looked sharp in his first fight since
an acrimonious split from trainer
Brendan Ingle and promoter
Frank Warren. It was also the
first of his six-fight deal with HBO.
"What a wicked fight Hamed
said. "He came with all heart. But I
have a heart of a lion. I'm not get-
ting beat. He knew when I hit him
with that shot, it was pure power.
"He did start getting forward in
the ninth round Hamed said. "He
was catching me. But I took those
rounds well. I was winning the
fight convincingly anyway
Possible future opponents for
Hamed include Mexico's Juan
Manuel Marquez, WBC super-ban-
tamweight champion Erik Morales
and IBF champion Manuel
Medina.
Hamed made one of his trade-
mark theatrical entrances to the
ring, riding into the arena in the
back of an open-top 1960 Cadillac
before somersaulting over the top
rope.
Frank Maloney, Ingle's manag-
er, had promised to take his fighter
back to the dressing room if
Hamed's entrance took longer than
five minutes. And that's just what
he did, timing Hamed's entrance
with a stop watch before leading
Ingle out of the ring.

the game, Salargo said the older
boys intimidated him and he was
ready to throw in the towel.
"I came home that first night
and told mom I wanted to never
play baseball again said Salargo.
"She made me go out there one
more day and I absolutely loved it
once I got the hang of it. I owe it all
to my mom
Salargo has come a long way
since those little league days and
has become the Pirates' main
offensive weapon. Along the way
he has gained popularity from the
crowd and respect from teammates
and coaches. According to head
baseball coach Keith LeClair,
Salargo has had an outstanding
career and is very deserving of all
the accolades and rewards he
receives.
"He is a guy that has been
somewhat of our catalyst said
LeClair. "He is just a good person
who comes to the ballpark ready to
play and a kid that wants to win
more than anyone else. It means a
lot to him
According to Pirate junior
infielder Nick Schnabel, Salargo
has the ability to get big hits when-
ever the team needs them and that
is not something you find in every
player.
"He comes up with clutch hits
game after game and that is huge
for us said Schnabel. "When it's
game time he shows up ready to
get after it
Travis Thompson, senior pitch-
er for the ECU team, believes
Salargo has made it a point to lead
by example this year. Thompson
says Salargo comes out and gives it
his all everyday and that causes a
snowball effect on the rest of the
team.
"He is on fire said Thompson.
"He is learning the game more
from every aspect and that comes
with experience. He is just a damn
good baseball player
The pressure to perform and the
responsibility of being � team
leader Salargo says are stressful He
believes a player must relax and
have a good time or the game of
baseball will consume them.
"It's a game and it's a fun game
and if you don't love it, it will hurt
you Salargo said.
As Salargo wraps up his colle-
giate baseball career at ECU this
season, he looks back with no
regrets. He says he remembers the
hundreds of friends he made along '
the way and will probably remem-
ber this season the most because of
the victories over Clemson, Miami
and Wake Forest.
"If my baseball career came to
an end today I wouldn't be upset
because I have had a great time
said Salargo. "It has been an incred- ,
ible experience and I would not

In his March 1 report, Mitchell
said the IOC had fostered "a cul-
ture of improper gift-giving" that
led to the Salt Lake vote-buying
scheme. The ethics panel said dras-
tic change was needed, including
accountability for IOC members
and a public look at the commit-
tee's finances.
After commending the U.S.
Olympic Committee for acting
"promptly and decisively" in
adopting a smaller list of recom-
mended changes and "accepting its
share of responsibility" for the
scandal, Mitchell said the IOC
actions were at an "interim stage
But he said the international

ing Henry Kissinger, Peter
Ueberroth and USOC president

A member of Mitchell's panel,
U.S. Major League Baseball union
chief Donald Fehr, said it would be
"many months" before
the IOC's future was clear.
Fehr and two other ethics mem-
bers, Roberta Cooper Ramo and
Jeff Benz, said they, too, liked the
IOC's initial reaction to the
scandal and their panel's recom-
mendations.
But Benz, a former figure skater
who serves on the USOC's athletes
advisory council, was dismayed that
only six of the 24 sets
on the IOC 2000 reform panel
had been filled, and that no ath-
letes had been picked so far.
Fehr said he was disappointed
that IOC president Juan Antonio
Samaranch had declined an invita-
tion to testify before the Senate
hearing.
One of the few domestic recom-
mendations of Mitchell's panel still .
in limbo is a request that the IOC .
be declared a public international
organization, making bribery of its
members subject to the Federal
Corrupt Practices Act Mitchell said '
he had been in contact with the '
White House about the request
and that a meeting would be sched-
uled for further discussions.

NFL stadium to be shared
PITTSBURGH (AP) - It didn't
work in Cincinnati. It didn't work
in Houston. It didn't work in
Philadelphia. It didn't work in San
Diego.
Mark Nordenberg and Steve
Pederson are convinced it will work
in Pittsburgh.
They believe a major Division I-
A football program can win games,
fans and financial support and not
lose its identity with the university
it represents by sharing an NFL
stadium. For that reason, they are
about to do what once would have
been unthinkable.
They are about to tear down 74-
year-old Pitt Stadium, one of the
most historic on-campus stadiums
in the country � the stadium
where national championships
were won as late as 1976 and the
careers of luminaries such as Dan
Marino, Mike Ditka, Tony Dorsett
and Marshall Goldberg were
launched.
In about a year from now, Pitt
Stadium will be gone, destroyed by
an inability to win by the struggling
program that inhabits it and the
strong belief of two ambitious
administrators that Pitt can no
longer survive, much less thrive, in
an antiquated structure.
After Pitt's final game is played
there in November, the stadium
will be razed to make room on the
school's crowded, hilly campus for a
12,500-seat convocation center,
additional student housing and
more parking.
The Panthers, a national power
as late as the 1980s but on the
decline with only one winning sea-
son in the 1990s, then will relocate
to Three Rivers Stadium in 2000.
After that season, Three Rivers will
be demolished and the Panthers
will move to the Pittsburgh
Steelers' new stadium in 2001.
To Pederson, Pitt's athletic
director, the decision to leave an
aging, expensive-to-maintain stadi-
um for a dazzling new stadium was
essentially a no-brainer.
"If you have the opportunity not
to put a lot of money into bricks
and mortar, then you have money
to improve your program in other
areas Pederson said.
"How can you not look at a fab-
ulous stadium being built just a few
miles from your campus when
that's going to be the best stadium
in America?"
Pitt will not pay any of the $228
million construction cost of the
still-unnamed Steelers stadium but
instead will lease it. The Steelers
say it will not create any scheduling
problems since they never play on
Saturdays during the regular sea-
son.
The genesis for the move came
when the Steelers, Pitt and the
University of Pittsburgh Medical
Center agreed about a year ago to
jointly build a practice and training
facility on the city's South Side, just
across the river from the new stadi-
um. Both teams will practice on
separate fields, and Pitt's football
operations will relocate there.
With the two teams in agree-
ment to share a practice facility that
is expected to open next year, it
only seemed natural they should
cohabitate the stadium.
Coincidentally, the two once
shared Pitt Stadium for six seasons
in the 1960s until Three Rivers
Stadium opened in 1970. Then,
Pitt was the occupant and the
Steelers were the tenant.
"We would not have considered
this seriously if we did not have
such respect and such a good
relationship with the owners of the
Steelers said Nordenberg, Pitt's
chancellor.
Steelers president Dan Rooney
has assured that Pitt will not be
made to feel like subordinate occu-
pants.
"We get along exceptionally
well with Pitt, and we're glad to
have them Rooney said. "It's real-
ly a plus for the university
Not surprisingly, the decision to
forsake Pitt Stadium stirred the
kind of contentious debate unseen
on campus in years. Even
Nordenberg himself was not over-
whelmed initially by Pederson's
idea until he began to study it.
Pitt will be breaking new
ground by becoming the most
prominent football school to aban-
don its stadium for an NFL stadi-
um.
The upside: Pitt will play in a
desirable, attractive stadium that
could lure recruits intrigued by
playing in an NFL stadium. The
school will get revenue from luxury
boxes and suites, which do not
exist at Pitt Stadium.
By knocking down Pitt Stadium,
it will create a much more desirable
location for the much-needed bas-
ketball arena. And attendance
probably won't be any worse;
crowds at Pitt games have fallen
from an average of 54,818 in 1982 to
below 40,000 during the 1990s.
The downside: The decision
has angered Pitt students, many of
whom rarely attend games now.
Some high-profile stars, such as
Dorsett, are displeased.
Leaving campus may also mean
abandoning the home-field advan-
tage; West Virginia coach Don
Nehlen raved about the neutral-
field atmosphere when the
Mountaineers beat Pitt in Three
Rivers Stadium in November. And
the track record of college teams
that share NFL stadiums is not
good, either in winning games or
fan support.
Temple, Cincinnati, Houston
and San Diego State have mostly
floundered while occupying NFL
stadiums, so much so that
Cincinnati and Houston moved
most or all of their games back on
campus.
Hawaii hasn't prospered in off-
campus Aloha Stadium, once a
minor league baseball stadium.
Temple almost seems invisible
playing before 60,000 empty seats
in cavernous Veterans Stadium.
Pitt students argue they were
largely excluded from the process
that means Pitt Stadium will ulti-
mately suffer the same fate as
Forbes Field, leveled shortly after
the Pirates left in 1970 to make way
for Pitt's Law School.
"What's amazing is that a school
as well known as Pitt sometimes
goes about making decisions with-
out regards to the students' con-
cerns said Mike Unangst, a
sophomore from Lititz, Pa. "In the
beginning, it didn't even seem like
they were thinking about us. So it
hurts us as students, but it also
hurts on a personal level
Unangst was among those
threatened with ejection when
they handed out more than 1,000
"Save Our Stadium" T-shirts at
Pitt's last home basketball game.
