Aycock student fires gun on College Hill
2 1 ear-old nesident
charged, arrested
Hoi.lv Harris
NEWS EDITOR
Malcom Earl Goyens, an Aycock
Hall resident, was arrested last last
week for firing a gun in the parking
lot east of Aycock Hall.
On April 12, officers responded
to a call from residents who said
they had heard gunshots outside of
the residence hall. Goyens, a 21-
year-old originally from Goldsboro,
was implicated in the incident
when a witness identified the car he
was driving. The owner of the car
referred officers to Goyens' room in
Aycock hall.
Goyens denied shooting the gun
and the weapon was never found,
but a search of his room revealed a
9 mm magazine with one round and
a 9 mm cleaning kit. A computer-
ized scale and an automatic rifle
magazine were located in the vehi-
cle. Shells matching the casings
found in the parking lot were dis-
covered on Goyens' person.
Goyens was charged with dis-
charging a firearm within the city
limits and possession of a weapon
on university property. He was
taken to the Pitt County Detention
Center where he was placed under
a $5,000 secured bond. He is sched-
uled to appear in court today.
Goyens could be sentenced
request a continuance.
The discovery of any type of
weapon on campus might be fright-
ening to both students and faculty
but Tom Younce of the ECU police
department said it is not uncom-
mon.
"We average at least two inci-
dents a month where we encounter
weapons on campus Younce said.
"This is a major concern because
everyone is in such close quarters,
on the other side of the coin it's a
felony
Possession of a weapon on cam-
pus can garner offenders not only
fines, but also a 12-month stay in
jail. According to Younce the
increase in weapons violations on
campus can be directly correlated to
a growing national
problem.
"I think that
people need to
keep in mind that
campus is reflec-
tive of society as a
whole Younce
said. "It's a major
safety concern not
only for students
but also for the
officers. In our
training we empha-
size to officers that
anybody could be
carrying a
weapon
Residents called police after hearing shots fired in this parking lot east of Aycock.

A group of 76 dance majors has
shown that students can come
together to create change on cam-
pus.
Amber Cartwright, a dance per-
formance major, started a petition to
renovate and restore the black box
studio in the Messick Theater Arts
Center and had it filled with signa-
tures within a week.
The petition claimed that the
warped floors, which are covered by
mats, pose a threat to the dancers.
Some students said that the humps
the mats causes are nearly as dan-
gerous as the bare floor.
"Everyone agrees that the floors
are warped and are dangerous for us
to dance on -There are little hills in
the floor that have the potential to
really injure the dancers' knees"
Cartwright said.
"The upstairs studio is large but
there are big cement columns in the
middle of the floor so you can only
dance up front or in the back said
dance major Ka'en.
The petition got the attention of
the Chancellor as well as that of the
Facilities Planning Department
after both students and faculty com-
plained that the facilities were inad-
equate and were not cleaned thor-
oughly or often enough.
"I received a letter from
Chancellor Eakin that said he had
contacted maintenance to make
sure the studio was kept cleaner and
that the school was in the process of
making renovations Cartwright
said. "Unfortunately, they always
tell us that they are 'in the process'
of doing renovations and nothing
ever seems to happen. We're hoping

Library soon to
charge for printing
Students will pay

Terra Steinbeiser
STAFF WRITER
In order to cut down on the amount
of paper waste and keep up with
the ever rising cost of production,
Joyner Library is considering a plan
to start next fall that would charge
students for printing things from
the library's computers.
"Five years ago, ECU's library
only had about 40 computer work
stations and there was no such
thing as the world wide web said
Gail Munde, associate director of
library services. "Because we now
we have about 155 computer work
stations and electronic access to
full-text databases, the cost of
printing -has sky-rocketed. The
library now sets aside about
$100,000 out of its yearly budget
for printing paper and ink alone
However, the new resolution,
called Uniprint, is still very much
in the planning process. It is not
definite how the library would go

CAMPUS POLICE SAY GUNS NECESSARY
Officers say violence
on rise on campuses
AN1SA GlIRAlRI
STAFF WRITER
As violence and crime increases on American university cam-
puses, many say the need for university police officers to carry guns
with them also increases. ECU, along with other UNC-system uni-
versities including UNC, NC State, UNC Charlotte, and UNCW
have campus officers that carry guns.
Officials say that because members of the university police force
are trained at the same academies where city officers are trained,
the campus officers are well versed in the usage of their firearms.
"Campus officers carry guns with them for the safety and secu-
rity of staff, faculty, and students Frank Knight, Captain of the
ECU police department.
According to Knight, there have been incidents of both ECU
students and non-students carrying guns on campus. Firearms
have also been found in student's cars and on student drug dealers.
Last fall, a man was arrested for trying to bring a concealed weapon
into a football game.
Last week, a man was arrested for firing a gun on campus.
Tom Younce, assistant director of the ECU police department
said most crimes on campus are not committed by students, and
the most common crime committed at ECU, UNCW, and UNC
Charlotte was theft; ranging from stolen books and jewelry to
stolen bikes.
According to Hugh Polland, assistant chief of the UNC
Charlotte police department university officers carry guns to illicit
respect.
"We are an official police agency trained in what we dopro-
tecting the law Polland said.
"People will respect an officer more with a gun than without

about monitoring printing,
although it would most likely be
accomplished in much the same
way that copying is done. That is,
the student puts money on his or
her ECU-One card and uses it to
pay for the service.
Joyncr Library will begin test-
ing equipment this summer to
work out the details and to make
sure that the computers are com-
patible with a program that will not
allow a student to print anything
without paying for it.
"This testing will allow us to
monitor usage and printing costs
and give us a good idea whether or
not the Uniprint program will pay
off for us said Jeff Huskamp,
associate vice chancellor of CIS.
"It's been installed at a lot of other
universities and seems to work
well there
Students, on the other hand, are
less than pleased.
Junior Ben Opar groaned when
asked how he felt about the propo-
sition and said, " I'm starting to
think I should just ask my boss to
start making my paychecks out to
ECU since that's where all of it
ends up anyway
"I'm not surprised said
Kelsey Sharp, sophomore. "This
school is always looking for ways to
charge us more money
Other students had sugges-
tions for ways to pay for printing
without charging students.
"If they got rid of those annoy-
ing purple and yellow neon lights
that run along the ceiling, I'm
sure they could use the money it
takes keep those things running
all the time to allow us to print
out anything we want said Liz
Carlsen, junior.
"We're still looking at other
possibilities and nothing is set in

rather the rapid growth of the

its facilities and its starting to affect

John Shearin, chair of the
Department of Theatre and
Dance, said the issue has been

Guns
continued from page 1
Officers said another compelling
reason to be trained with and carry
firearms is the work they do outside
of the campus beat University
police officers sometimes venture
around town, helping out the city
officers when requested. Recendy
ECU campus officers helped out
city police on two different occa-
sions � once when the Pantry on
Tenth street was robbed and again
when there was an armed robbery
at Harris Teeter.
"At UNCW we handle both
police and university affairs so our
officers carry guns with them at all
times said Lieutenant David
Donaldson. "We have severah
options to choose from before hav-
ing to use our guns. First we use
the soft hand approach technique
which is putting someone's hands
behind their back or telling them to
place their hands on the cat Nj&t
we would use pepper spray. If that
doesn't work we would use hard
handed tactics which include strik-
ing. Our guns would only be used as
a last resort
However, police at some univer-
sities said campus is not the place
for armed officers. Chuck Gantos, a
member of the police force at Elon
college said officers should not rou-
tinely carry guns.
"There is no reason to carry guns
on campus unless you are respond-
ing to a call Gantos said.
Some ECU students said they
feel safer knowing that campus offi-
cers are equipped to handle poten-
tially dangerous situations.
" I know there has been contro-
versy over whether or not police
should carry guns on campus, but I
think most students would agree
that it's for our safety that they
should said Allison Ward, junior.

STAFF WRITER
This past weekend, ECU was
buzzing with approximately 2,200
prospective students and their fam-
ilies who gathered in Greenville
from all over the state, and east
coast to learn about the campus.
Activities began early on
Saturday morning with a speech by
Thomas Powell, Director of
Admissions, and comments from
Alfred Matthews, Vice Chanctllor
for Student Life, as well as Keats
Sparrow, Dean of the College ofj
Arts and Sciences.
The popular Academic Fair was
held to give future students an idea
of the programs and departments
available at ECU. In addition to
this, several of the schools and
departments opened their facilities
for visitation throughout the day.
The Student Life Fair exhibited
the many opportunities for student
involvement available at ECU.
"When I came to open house last
year, the Student Life Fair is what
excited me most about coming
here said Jodie Harkon, a fresh-
man volunteer at Pitt County
Memorial Hospital. "There is so
much to get involved with and so
many people you can meet through
those activities
Other activities that took place
during this busy day included walk-
ing tours of the campus, visitation of
the residence halls, visitation of the
Student Recreation Center and a
Pirate Pride Rally to boost school
pride.
Although a definite number has
not yet been determined, it is esti-
mated that ECU will become the
new alma mater of approximately
2,950 freshmen in the fall of 1999 as
opposed to the 2,819 new freshmen
who entered in the fall of 1998.
This number indicates that North
Carolina's third largest campus is
still growing at an ever increasing
rate.

In light of the recent death of an ECU student due to drinking and driving, it's espe-
cially important that students take alcohol awareness week seriously.
Alcohol may be fun to drink, but it can be a poison. While affecting every personj
differently, it always interferes with the reflexes, inhibitions and other safety barri-
ers that keep us from harm when we drive and interact with others. This is why it's
i
important to keep an intoxicated person from driving. Everyone can rattle off facts
similar to these, but doing something with the knowledge requires an effort.
Alcohol awareness week would not be necessary if students would act on what
they've learned from public service announcements, posters and speakers. Every
student who steps onto this campus has certainly been informed of the potential
dangers of alcohol.
How many public safety announcements does it take before students realize that
their drunk friends are not "OK" to drive, no matter how convincing they sound?
How many students must cause the deaths of themselves and others before their
friends take the car keys and refuse to give them back?
We've got to stop pretending that the problem will just go away, and start taking
responsibility for our actions. We need to care about our fellow human beings
enough to take the necessary steps to keep them safe.
What is the real problem? Why do people keep dying? Perhaps nobody wants to
confront a drunk friend with reality. Maybe nobody stops to think that alcohol could
kill someone they know until it's too late.
Or maybe it's a simple human tendency to keep a low profile. Nobody wants to
make a fuss, or to look overexcited, let alone demand car keys from an intoxicated
person. It's easier to blend into the scenery and hope that your drunk friend gets
home safely.
So what if keeping your friends and other motorists safe requires an extra effort?
Do it anyway. It's the only thing to do, and it's the only thing required of you. Don't
drive drunk, and don't let your friends do it either.

Gilfus introduces himself
'hello all, top-of-the-morning to ya.
Your friendly, biweekly
reportercolumnist here. I know
that this column is still a wee bit
new, so I think it's high time every-
one got to know me just a little bit
better. I've decided to interview
myself so that you, the wonderful
TEC readers, can not only learn
something about the world, but
more importantly, something about
yourselves.
Q: We've never seen a picture of
you next to your column, are you
some disfigured freak or some-
thing?
A: er, no. As far as you know.
Just your average red-headed, left-
hander. Many people don't realize
this, but I am on the endangered
species list. In fact, I'm only
allowed to go out with red-headed
females in order to propagate die
species. That's not true, really, but
it makes for a great pick-up line.
Q Isn't this excuse for a column
just your puerile attempt to take
over Ryan Dogg's job?
A: I'm sure I have no idea what
you're talking about. I have noth-
ing but respect for my talented con-
temporary and fellow columnist
Mr. Kennemur. I would never try to
replace him.
Q What about those plans for
his "retirement" you keep in your
bottom drawer?
A Umlook! Elvis!
Q: C'mon, tell us the truth.
Writing a column is the easiest job
in the world, right?
A: You have got to be kidding. If
only everyone knew the long, gru-
eling work it took to produce one
column every week. I mean, just
finding a decent CD to listen to
while writing this takes a good 15
minutes. And the editing that goes
into this is extensive. When I think
of all the time it takes for the copy
editors to read over my stuff and
laugh and giggle at me behind my
back over my common mis-
spellings of "advisor" and "is
Man, they truly earn their pay.
Q: How much do they pay you
at TEC?
A Enough not to talk to the
proper authorities.
Q: Look, I know you want to
talk about VH-l's Divas thing, so
go ahead.
A: Thanks, you're such a won-
derful, intelligent person who
everyone should give money to. All
right, I'm no diva expert or any-
thing (except for that bit part I
played in "Priscilla: Queen of the
Desert but that's another story),
but VH-1 needs to look up the
word in a dictionary. Brandy? Faith
Hill? LcAnn Rimes?! These giris
have as much attitude as one of my
professors. Divas are people like
Barbara Streisand or Bette Midler.
Though I do give VH-1 credit for
having one of the greatest divas of
all time, Sir Elton John.

Drop in ratings justified
Staying on the list of the
most wired schools requires a
lot more than just upgrading
Internet Explorer from
3.0 to 4.0!
Well, well, well. It seems that we
were unable to make the top 100
most wired schools list this year.
Frankly, I'm not surprised. As
much as administrators try to make
it seem like we were given an
unfair rating, I think that our rating
is entirely justified.
Just having a campus-wide
internet connection is just not the
standard any more. Part of the rea-
son that we got such a high rating
last year is because we were one of
the newest schools to have a high
speed internet connection. And I
hear it's great for all the kids in the
residence halls who like to chat and
look at porn.
Our university lacks a campus
computing initiative. I like using
Virginia Tech as an example,
because I have researched their
program, since I will be a student
there next semester. All students
are required to own a computer,
and many assignments are done
online. As each student is required
to use their computer on a daily
basis, every student is proficient at
using a computer.Students are also
more apt to use the features of their
network, such as personalized e-
mail and gaming networks.The
school's network not only includes
the school's campus itself, but also
includes most apartment complex-
es, and some fraternity and sorori-
ty houses.
Students use programs such as
AOL Instant Messenger to send
messages, because they are quicker
and easier than picking up phones.
Students have after class chat dis-
cussions with their class mates and
teachers in the evening to help
them figure out their assignments.
If you are sick, you simply downr
load your assignments off your
instructors web page, print them
out, and turn them in the next class
period. You can even buy a meal
plan off their web site or request a
financial aid transcript. Basically,
you can do in twenty minutes what
it would usually take hours to do on
campus.
ECU, being a regional school,
lacks the prestige and funding of
larger schools like Virginia Tech.
Many students here complain that
they can't afford computers, but
there is a solution to that as well.
Students are allotted extra financial
aid so they can afford the comput-
ers. And if that means an extra loan,
than so be it. As students are
already paying tens of thousands of
dollars to attend college anyway, an
extra $1500 or so would be a small
price to pay for incredibly increas-
ing the quality of the education at
ECU. And a litde hint to the ECU
computer labs: staying on the list of
the most wired schools requires a
lot more than just upgrading
Internet Explorer from 3.0 to 4.0!

more going on than that scratch-
the-surface article that was present-
ed to the public under the guise of
good reporting in The East
Carolinian last Tuesday.
Question: If Mark Schatz is to be
fired for being tardy one time and
absent three times from his job,
then what action should be taken
against Ronald Spear for being fif-
teen minutes late for the media
board meeting that was to fire Mark
for the very same actions? Although
Mark was able to explain his tardi-
ness, I can't imagine how Ronald
could possibly explain himself,
other than, "Do as I say not as I
do What kind of example is
Ronald setting?
If Paul Wright, as he stated, had
nothing to do with the decision,
then who did? Who brought the
action to terminate to the commit-
tee? By the way, the committee can
not meet without Mr. Wright. He
controls through professed knowl-
edge the way all meetings are con-
ducted. They can not make a deci-
sion without first checking with
him for a ruling on points of order.
Does that sound like a man who is
uninvolved? Where in the article
does it say that Paul Wright and
Mark Schatz had a problem with
one another? It is my understand-
ing that this was the case.
Where in the article does it point
out that the room in which this
meeting was held was overflowing
with support for Mr. Schatz to the
point of spilling out into the hall-
way? Pweyls (hit fuuiu-t wntpluj
ees) 'as well as myself who had
made it clear that they wished to
speak out on Mark's behalf. Several
of us called and e-mailed board
members informing them that we
wished to speak on his behalf. No
one said one word to us or asked us
why we were there. They met in
closed session and decided that
Mark was fired.
My observation, not his, is that as
general manager, he has one task:
run the company well and and run
it with integrity. Who the hell cares
how or when it gets done? Unless
of course, they are looking to get rid
of him, then perhaps tardiness and
attendance can be used as an
excuse. Where in the article is it
confirmed that Mark Schatz was
putting in four times the hours
required to run the station, going to
school full-time, and working
almost every night at Alfredo's in
order to get through school?
Before any of you think that I am a
close personal friend of Mark, let
me point out that until I wrote this
article, I didn't even know how to
spell his last name. I don't know
where he lives. I don't know where
he's from. Frankly, all I know about
Mark I learned by working with
him and people under his direct
supervision, and let me tell you that
it was a rare pleasure to work with
someone as competent, concerned
and as dedicated to his job as Mark
was.
Where in the article does it point
out that a student on the board
asked the question, "if you guys are
going to make all the decisions,
then why even have a board? I ask,
wko are yon ttrc nrrl �rliy ftm j-imi
guys running the board rather than
advising and setting a good exam-
ple for the students to run their
own media board?
I was there. The whole thing was a
travesty and the young man didn't
stand a chance. Is that how a board,
who is supposed to protect stu-
dents from arbitrary decision,
should go about investigating a sit-
uation?
To the media board: You fired or
allowed a man to be fired without
holding up your own responsibili-
ties to investigate and to get all the
facts. It was and still is your respon-
sibility to protect and serve the stu-
dents first and yourselves second.
If you can't perform a job then you
shouldn't expect the position as a
board member.
Ron Spear and Paul Wright are only
men. They are not gods and I'll bet
if you stand up to them they will
learn to take their places as advisors
and not as acting owners. Despite
their impressive tides they don't
own a damn thing at ECU. They
are state employees paid by the
tuition and taxes that you pay.
They work for you. They can't stop
you from doing your job unless you
let them. And they did.

BROOKE POTTS
STAFF WRITER
It's Saturday night in
Greenville. Let's see, what
is there to do? If you are
like most students on this
campus, your weekend
plans will involve getting
out of the house and
hanging out with friends
at a local bar.
Generally speaking,
drinking alcohol is not a
detMMBafcbehavior. But
on manycoirege campus-
es where young people
are exposed to alcohol in
much greater quantities
than they are used to, a
night out drinking can have
serious consequences.
As a response to the dangers
of irresponsible drinking, several
groups on campus are working
together to educate students about
the possible dangers involved in
alcohol abuse.
This is Alcohol Awareness
Week, a national event that encour-
ages smart decision making among
college students who drink.
"The purpose of this week is to
make students aware of the dangers
involved in binge drinking said
Bob Morphet, substance abuse
counselor at the counseling center.
"People should know that consum-
ing alcohol does have a host of neg-
ative consequences
These negative effects can be as
minor as a hangover or as serious as
assault.
As a whole, the binge drinking
rates here at ECU mirror almost
exactly the national rates, demon-
strating that the perception of

main event will be
the appearance of
Don Parker, magician
and speaker. His
magic show, entitled
"The Illusion of Drugs
and Alcohol not only
entertains but also car-
ries an important message
to students. Don is a recov-
ering alcoholic, and he

The finale of the week will be.
the Fiesta Night Pool Party out
doors at the Student Recreation
Center. More food and prizes wilt
be awarded and an Aqua 500 is
planned.
"Hopefully this week will
encourage ECU students to make
healthy choices where alcohol is
concerned Morphet said.
Greenville
being a party
town may be less
than accurate.
Nationwide, the average
amount of alcohol consumed has
traditionally been higher among
college-age students.
Students misuse alcohol during
their college years for many rea-
sons. Freshmen typically consume
more alcohol than seniors, indicat-
ing a tendency to experiment more
often and to give in to pressure.
Social pressure also compounds the
situation. As students try to fit in
with a particular crowd, they may
engage in behaviors that they
might not usually consider. But as
time passes and students mature,
they know how to better deal with
peers and the influence they exert.
"ECU is just like any other school
said Kamiko Sawyer, freshman and
member of SADD. "There are lots
of parties and alcohol is a part of
many of them. You just have to be
aware of your decisions and their
effects
Sororities,
SADD, the counsel-
ing center, student recre-
ational services and many other
organizations will be taking part in
the week.
"We want to create awareness
and positive ways to deal with alco-
hol said Nancy Mize, director of
recreation services and chair of the
healthy lifestyles committee.

Cell phones, pagers become
new commodity for students
This form of technology
is essential for many
Nina M. Dry
FEATURES EDITOR
You and a date are chillin' and
really getting into the newest horror
flick, Halloween pan 21. Michael
Meyers is about to slice and dice
when an obnoxious shrill of some-
one's cell phone interrupts you.
Or how about sitting in class, con-
templating whether or not to use the
'abracadabra' system on your history
exam when an irritating beeping
sound breaks you from your reverie.
Cellular telephones and digital
pagers are found far and wide
throughout campus. What began as

an essential tool for business tycoons
has expanded to the hands of stu-
dents. Is this form of technology a
commodity for communication or is
it another trend that will soon fade
as many tend to do?
There are many students on
campus who have cell phones and
pagers, believing they are quite
necessary for the modern student.
"I bought a pager my freshman
year since my parents lived in
Topsail and I was in Greenville
said Ryan Jasen Henne, senior. "I
was never in my room and I wanted
my parents to be able to contact
me
"I own a cell phone, using it for
emergencies said G.W. Barker,
junior.
D. Wayne, a senior, has a cell
phone for business and safety rea-
sons.
"My husband owns a logging
company Wayne
said. "He has the
pager and I have the
cell. That way we can
keep in touch with
each other
According to
Wayne, cell phones
are a necessity for
those, especially
women, who have to
travel long distances
in the car.
"Since I commute
an hour each day, I
have my phone just
in case Wayne said.
"You never know
what might happen
on the highway
There are also stu-
dents who find them-
selves preferring one
over the other.
According to Barker,
pagers are just an "electronic ball
and chain
"Back in the day, it was cool to
steal pagers, but now, especially in
high school, only dorks have them
because the only person calling you
is your mom Barker said.
"It would be very beneficial for
me to have a pager because of all
the volunteer work I do and my
football oriented services said
Tomha McMillan, senior. "A cell
phone is useless because all you
really need is a pager and a phone
card�it's cheaper that way
And, of course there are those
who don't find either beneficial.
"I don't want people to get in
touch with me everywhere I go
said Maranda Johns, sophomore.
"What if I don't want to talk to
them?"
"I think it's just a trend said
Desmond Garner, freshman. "I
have a friend who has one and he
barely uses it. He just thinks it's
cool
So what is the deal with cells and
pagers? According to Sand Dutcher,
an employee at United States
Cellular and student, it's not a
trend, but a new way of keeping in
touch.
"We see many students buying
telephones and it's mainly because
prices are coming down Dutcher
said. "This brings more students
into the market
Dutcher said there are a variety
of reasons students purchase
phones including security reasons,
the coming of age in technology
and that cell phones are cheaper
when calling in the (252) area code
district.
With all of the hype cell phones

The Repertory Theater Company of America will present "Peggy Sue Got Murdered'this Thursday
PHOTO COURTESY OF THE STUDENT UNION
Dinner theater comes to campus
Event sponsored
by Student Union
Phillip Gilfls
SENIOR WRITER
Are you hungry? Hungry enough
for murder?!
The Student Union certainly
hopes so. They are bringing a mur-
der mystery dinner theater to cam-
pus for the second time in recent
years.
"The group we're bringing
came here two years before and
was a success said Lynn Caverly,
assistant director of Student
Activities. "Wc expect for it to be a
sell-out performance
The Repertory Theater
Company of America will be pre-
senting "Peggy Sue Got
Murdered They are the same
group that presented "Murder By
the Book" in 1997.
"There will be four actors per-
forming who have been on the
road since September said
Nathan Thomas, artistic director
for the touring theater company.
The play is set at a '50s high
school sockhop. Peggy Sue
Simmers is the most popular girl in
school and senior class president.
But the night she volunteers to
provide the 45s for the annual
back-to-school sockhop, the night
turns deadly.
The performers for the dinner
theater will include Katja Serrka-
Lisa as Peggy Sue, Jessica Kelly as
Teen Angel, Georgian James
Karwisch as Mr. Edsel and Ryan
Soteres as the Big Copper.
The audience members of
"Peggy Sue" will be able to partic-
ipate in solving the murder mys-
tery and, at the same time, will be
served dinner catered by Aramark.
The menu for the evening will
consist of garden salad, chicken
rochembeau, roasted new pota-
toes, sugar snap peas and New
York Style Cheesecake.
"Peggy Sue" will be performed
at Mendenhall Student Center in
the Multi-Purpose Room on April
22 at 7 p.m.
Tickets are available at the
Central Ticket Office until the
end of today. Tickets for the pub-
lic cost $15, while ECU faculty and
staff can pay $13. Students can pay
$5 cash or can use a $5 debit from
their declining balance or use a
meal-plan dinner equivalent to pay
for the dinner.

Pirates take two of three from Richmond Spider
Wins increase
conference record to 9-2
Paul Kaplan
senior writer
It was a wild weekend of Pirate
Baseball as No. 21 ranked ECU
won a three game series 2-1 to up
their overall record to 32-9 and
more importantly increase their
conference record to 9-2.
On Friday the Pirates took down
the Richmond Spiders 13-11 in an
almost four hour game highlighted
by a miraculous comeback from a
10-0 second inning deficit.
It was in the seventh inning
when the magic really happened
after Steve Salargo got on base with
an RBI single putting them back
only 11-9.
Then Big J6nn Williamson
stepped up to the plate and
knocked out a game clinching
grand slam home run to give the
Pirates the lead 13-11 and
inevitably the win. The Pirates
went on to pick up their second win
of the weekend in a decisive win on
Saturday 12-5. John Williamson
and Jason Howard each went 3-5 in
the win and Travis Thompson
pitched 7.0 strong innings increas-
ing his pitching record to 7-1.
It was on Sunday when the
Pirates took their only loss of the
weekend as they fell to Richmond
in a lackluster 6-1 loss.
"We got two wins this weekend,
the first was a big one. Overall, it's
been a positive weekend said
Chad Tracy. Richmond's play was
highlighted by Mike Smith's
impressive pitching; he pitched a
complete game while giving up
only seven hits that night.
"He was a good pitcher with a
good diving fast ball. We just could-
n't make the adjustments that we
needed to said Steve Salargo.
Richmond started off Sunday's
game with a run to take a quick first
inning lead. Richmond put two
more on the board in the third, only
one earned. They scored one run
coming off of a wild pitch and a
passed ball, which brought around
the third run for a 3-0 lead. ECU
remained scoreless until the fourth
inning when they scored their only
run of the game. John Williamson
hit an RBI single scoring Salargo
who had reached on a hit which
continued his career high tying 15
game hitting streak. After the
fourth inning not only did the
Pirates never make it around the
bases again but they also did not
have more than four hits in the rest
of the game.
"I didn't think
we were ready to
play. We didn't have
that same hop in our
step as on Friday
and Saturday said
Keith LeClair, head
coach. "When you
give up only five hits
and lose 6-1 you're
just not playing
defense
The Pirates trav-
el next to UNC
Greensboro for a
non-conference
game, and then later
this weekend they
travel to Old
Dominion for a
three game confer-
ence series. The
Rams are 30-9 overall and 9-2 in the
CAA.
The ECU Pirates took the Richmond Spiders in a three game metch over the weekend.

"We have just got to keep our Wednesday's game and be ready to
heads up and be ready for battle Salargo said.
Track places high at CAA's
Clayton helps in
third place finish
Mandy Reutter
STAFf WRITER
ECU track arrived at the CAA tour-
nament in Fairfax, VA this past
weekend and they left with a hand-
ful, that is, a handful of first place
victories.
Michelle Clayton alone won
three events and set yet another
school record in the hammer to help
lead the team to a third place finish
behind George Mason and William
and Mary. This throw of 57.20
meters earned Clayton a CAA meet
record and set a qualifying mark for
the NCAA tournament.
"We had a very good meet said
Charles Justice, women's track
coach. "We led ail the way to the
end, then William and Mary and
George Mason picked up some
points that we weren't expecting
Following behind Clayton in the
hammer was her sister Margret
Clayton with a second place throw
of 46.38 meters, and Jennifer
Prevatt finished in third with a dis-
tance of 45.14 meters.
Clayton also gained a first place
finish in the shot put with a mark of
13.95 meters, as her ECU team-
mates Crystal Frye and Margret
Clayton came in second and fifth
with marks of 12.64 and 11.72
meters, respectively. Clayton's third
and final first-place finish of the
tournament occurred in the discuss
throw with a mark of 43.00 meters.
In the 400-meter dash, Kiona
Kirkpatrik finished in a time of
56.03 seconds. Although Kirkpatrik
placed fourth in the event, this time
qualified her for the ECAC
Outdoor Championships.
Third out of 14 competitors, not
bad for Rasheca Barrow, who fin-
ished with a time of 12.15 in the
100-meter dash. Teammates Nicky
Goins and Carmen Weldon in the
same event, tallied a fourth and
sixth place finish with times of
12.17 and 12.46, respectively.
Barrow also finished sixth in the
200-meter dash in the time of 25.26
seconds behind fifth place sprinter,
Goins with a time of 25.20.
Moving on to the finals of the
100-meter high hurdles, Saundra
Teel, with a time of 14.33, finished
in second place while Marshari
Williams took home fifth with the
time of 14.75. Teel also jumped into
a fourth place position in the finals
of the high jump with a leap of 1.54
meters, and Williams took fifth in
the long jump with a mark of 5.57
meters. In- the finals of the triple
jump, Kilgore captured third-place
with a mark of 12.04 and Toshima
Dabbs took fourth-place with a
mark of 11.72. Last but not least,
the 4x100 meter relay team came
home with a second-place win in
the time of 46.00 seconds.
Men's track which had been
plagued with nagging injuries,
enter the tournament and was as
equally successful as the women,
finishing in an overall fifth-place
position.
"We weren't sure how we were
going to do going into the tourna-
ment said Bill Carson, head coach.
"It was a bad day for sprinters, as far
as the weather but what we put
on the track, we did good
The 4x400-meter relay team,
consisting of Lawrence Ward, Terry
Speller, Michael Miller and Damon
Davis beat out a field of seven
teams to take a first place finish in
the time of 3.08.72.
Darrick Ingram, one of the run-
ners hounded with an injury, placed
first in the finals of the 400-meter
dash with a time of 46.22. Bringing
in third and sixth was Damon Davis
(46.67) and Miller (47.70). Ingram
also finished second in the 200-
meter dash with a time of 21.61 fol-
lowed by Lawrence Ward in fifth
and Darren Tuitt in sixth.
"Where we won, we clearly
won said Carson. "Where we got
beat, we got beat, no excuses
As for the 100-meter dash,
Monroe took first in the time of
10.71, followed by Tuitt in thrid and
Britt Cox in fifth. Lynn Stewart, out
of 13 hurdlers, took second with a
time of 52.63 in the 400-meter
intermediate hurdles.
Gathering points for the team
were the 4x100-meter relay sprint-
ers. Members, Britt Cox, Darren
Tuitt, Rashawn Deans and Darius
Chishom dashed into second place.
Golf team grabs top ten position
Weather conditions
challenge Pirates
Blaise Denils
SENIOR WRITER
This weekend's CAA golf champi-
onship had more mudslinging than
the '96 presidential campaign as
rough weather conditions provided
an extra challenge for the Pirates.
The ECU golf team managed a
sixth place finish despite the
weather and concluded with a
three-day total score of 942 at the
CAA Championship. The tourna-
ment, was held at Richmond, Vas
Hermitage Country Club from
April 16-18. Heavy rains had the
course in poor shape and strong
winds added to the Pirates' trouble.
"The first day was cool, windy
and wet said Shane Robinson,
junior golfer for the Pirates. "We
were hitting off mud and it killed
me. I lost all my confidence the first
two days
The Pirates posted a 302 in
Sunday's round, the third best score
of the day, but that was not enough
to catch the eventual champions of
Virginia Commonwealth. VCU cap-
tured the team title with a 39-over
par 903. The University of
Richmond carded a 913 to finish
second while Old Dominion placed
third carding a 918. -
Wet fairways and greens plus
gusty winds made an already diffi-
cult Hermitage course even tougher
over the weekend. The Pirates
were not the only team struggling
as only one club broke 300 until
Sunday's final round. Junior Marc
Miller posted a hard-fought 76 dur-
ing Sunday's round to finish tied for
eighth place in the individual com-
petition with a 14-over 230 for the
Pirates. Stephen Satterly, a junior
on the ECU golf team, helped end
the weekend on a positive note.
Satterly carded a team low score of
73 to finish 15th individually with a
233.
"The conditions were not good;
everything was really wet and the
fairways were muddy Miller said.
"We hit it down the fairway and it
hurt us. That gets in your head,
confuses and frustrates you
The Pirates were in eighth place
after the first round of play Friday,
posting a 35-over par 233 and fin-
ishing 23 shots back of the leader
Richmond. Miller lead ECU in
round one with a seven-over 79.
The Pirates carded a 317 on
Saturday to move into sixth place
where they stayed to finish out the
tournament. Donny Lee of VCU
won the individual title, carding a
four-over par 220. Tied for second
were Michael Hospodar of Old
Dominion and Richmond's Ken
MacDonald, each with a 223.
"I feel that we did not have
enough depth in our team line-up
to withstand this field said Kevin
Williams, head coach. "The field at
the CAA is very strong with five
teams ranked in the top 80 in the
nation. We will hopefully regain
some ground at our next tourna-
ment (Furman) by bringing in some
strong freshman talent
Despite their top 10 finish, many
ECU golfers are disappointed with
the team's performance overall.
According to Miller, the team has
struggled the past couple of tourna-
ments and he is not pleased with
this weekend's results.
"When we play bad, we play
really bad Miller said. "We take
one step forward and two steps
back
Robinson shares his teammate's
disappointment. He said high
scores hurt him all weekend and
he was not able to take advantage
of the big shots. Robinson, who has
played this course on seven other
occasions, realizes there is no room
for error on such a difficult track
with weathered conditions.
"This course is so hard
Robinson said. "You have to take
advantage of it when you hit good
shots. Our biggest problem was no
birdies as a team. We came in look-
ing to win and played very poorly

NFL draft places
Couch at Cleveland
(AP)� So much for the Year of the
Quarterback.
Yes, Tim Couch, Donovan
McNabb and Akili Smith went 1-
2-3 to Cleveland, Philadelphia and
Cincinnati in Saturday's NFL draft
the first quarterback trifecta since
1971.
And five QBs overall were taken
in the top dozen with Daunte
Culpepper going to Minnesota with
the 11th pick and Cade McNown
to Chicago with the next choice.
But the quarterbacks had to
share top billing with the New
Orleans Saints, who did just what
coach Mike Ditka has been trying
to do all along: get running back
Ricky Williams, the Heisman
Trophy winner.
Ditka's largesse also helped out
the Washington Redskins.
He made his move when
Indianapolis used the fourth overall
pick to take Miami running back
Edgerrin James instead of Williams.
Ditka traded all his picks this year
and his first and third next year to
Washington, a total of eight in all. It
set up the rest of the draft and it
certainly set up the Redskins.
But Ditka didn't blink.
After the deal for Williams was
struck, he emerged from the Saints'
war room, pumped both fists in the
air, fired up a big cigar and shouted:
"The power of prayer did it
"He's supposed to come here
Ditka said. "I love the kid, every-
thing about him. It's what we need.
I think he's going to show people
he's the best college football player
coming out. He gives us what
Walter Payton gave Chicago
None of that would have hap-
pened had not the Colts taken
James over Williams, who was dis-
appointed not to be the first run-
ning back taken.
That opened the way for the
Redskins to deal with the Saints
and allowed the Skins to turn
around and trade some of those
picks to the Bears to for the seventh
choice and the player they wanted
all along � cornerback Champ
Bailey of Georgia.
Colts president Bill Polian said it
"basically was a tie" between James
and Williams, although James was
better at catching the football.

Draft
continued from page 6
That's important in the Colts'
offense, particularly without
Marshall Faulk, who had 86 catch-
es last season but was traded to the
Rams on Thursday.
Three Mississippi State players
were selected in the second round
Saturday. James Johnson became
the first Bulldog player to be select-
ed.
The Miami Dolphins used their
second-round pick, the 39th selec-
tion, to take the Mississippi State
running back. The Mobile, Ala.
native, rushed for 1383 yards and
12 touchdowns for the Bulldogs
this past season.
Johnson played two seasons
with Mississippi State, running for
2,452 yards and leading the
Southeastern Conference in rush-
ing during the 1998-99 season.
Mississippi State tight end
Reggie Kelly was selected three
spots behind his teammate. The
Atlanta Falcons used the 42nd pick
in the second round to select the
Aberdeen native.
Kelly, considered one of the best
blocking tight ends in the draft, had
12 catches for 140 yards and one
touchdown this past season.
The New York Jets selected
Mississippi State offensive guard
Randy Thomas with the 57th pick
in the second round. The East
Point, Ga native played 24 games
for the Bulldogs and earned All-
Southeastern Conference team
honors his senior season.
This was also a socially signifi-
cant draft.
Of the first five quarterbacks
taken, three are black � McNabb,
Smith and Culpcpper. That equals
the entire number of black quarter-
backs ever taken in the first round
� Doug Williams in 1978, Andre
Ware in 1990 and Steve McNair in
1995.

tide
INDIO, Calif. (AP) - Unbeaten
"Sugar" Shane Moslcy used his
height advantage to successfully
defend his IBF lightweight title
for the eighth time Saturday night,
stopping John Brown at the end of
the eighth round.
Although Moslcy found it diffi-
cult to land punches, hard right-
hand combinations found their
way to Brown's head and body and
Brown found it difficult to remain
steady. When the bell ending the
eighth round rang, referee Pat
Russell called ringside physician
Dr. Paul Wallace to examine
Brown.
Wallace determined that Brown
was too disoriented to continue.
Mosley, who weighed the 135-
pound class limit, led on all cards
with Brown, 134 14, winning only
the seventh round.
Mosley, 27, of Pomona, Calif is
32-0 with 30 knockouts. At 5-foot-
9 he towered over the 5-3 Brown.
Brown, 30, of Mays Landing, N.J
fell to 19-6 with 10 knockouts.

Mail Return Receipt Requested. Mr.
Tom Drew. PO Box 587. Goldsboro.
NC 27533. Re: Notice of Continued
Ban from University Property. Dear
Mr. Drew: On January 25. 1999. the
University notified you in writing that
you were banned from entering Uni-
versity property. On March 26. 1999,
the University informed you that you
may appeal its decision to ban you
from its property. On April 7, 1999,
you appealed the University's action
by meeting with Police Chief Teresa
Crocker, Patrol Lieutenant Stan Kit-
trell, Ms. Plummer, Ms. Wolfe and
me. During this meeting, you were
provided an opportunity to present
information which you believe sup-
ports a lifting of the ban. Based upon
our review of the information you
presented during your appeal, this
notifies you that the ban will not be
lifted at this time: that the ban re-
mains in full force and effect and,
that entering University property
may subject you to arrest. Sincerely,
Layton Getsinger. Associate Vice
Chancellor for Administration and
Finance. (Above ad paid by Tom
Drew)
