Graduation ceremony cut
short by inclement weather
One commencement
exercise canceled
Shana Woodward
stapp writer
Nearly 2,000 graduates and 8,000
guests sat through a wet, but brief
commencement on Saturday, May
15 in Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
There were two commencement
exercises slated to take place, one
at 9:30 a.m. and another at 12:30
p.m. However, due to inclement
weather the first ceremony was cut
short and the second was canceled.
"The number of graduates in
attendance might have been a little
bit down from previous years said
C.C. Rowe, commencement com-
mittee chair. "I have heard, from
several different sources, that many
people showed up for the 12:30 p.m.
ceremony which they anticipated
we were going to have because of
the weather situation
According to Rowe, the fall in
numbers was probably due to the
rainy weather and confusion with
what ceremony schedule would take
place. The Commencement
Committee had two plans ready for
Saturday.
"We have a favorable weather
plan and an unfavorable weather
plan, and we were prepared to do
either Rowe said.
"The trigger to making the call is
that Chancellor Eakin and I work
together to look at the most reliable
weather sources, and then we
announce our decision by noon on
the day before commencement. You
can't make a decision to go indoors
at the last minute unless you have a
facility that can hold everybody, and
Williams Arena can't do that
Ceremonies began at 9:00 a.m.
with a performance by ECU's Band
Concert, and the processional start-
ed shortly after. The commence-
ment program began at 9:30 a.m.
which included guest speaker Dr.
William C. Friday, retired president
of the University of North Carolina.
The ceremony lasted only twenty
minutes, and according to Rowe,
Chancellor Eakin decided to abbre-
viate the ceremony when the weath-
er continued to get worse.
"People carried a lot of expense
getting here, and they ended up see-
ing a very short commencement
Rowe said.
"Some of them
feel like their money was wasted,
and I can certainly appreciate and
sympathize
with them.
However,
the down-
side to mov-
ing the cere-
mony inside
is that every-
thing would
have been

Although campus seems quiet this
time of year, a new class of fresh-
man will soon begin discovering
what ECU college life is all about.
"Summer orientation is a won-
derful opportunity for incoming
freshmen to learn about the univer-
sity, and I would encourage current
students to be helpful in any way
they can toward both students and
parents when they arrive said
Richard Eakin, Chancellor.
According to the Office of
Undergraduate Studies, officials are
expecting somewhere around 3,000
freshman to be entering in the fall.
"Freshman orientation sessions
will begin the first week in June
said Beth Pretty, director of
Orientation and the First-Year
Experience. The incoming stu-
dents will be here for two and a half
days and participate in various
activities. These activities include
peer meetings, sessions with hous-
ing and dining, career services, vol-
unteer services, student health,
recreational services, ECU police
and representatives from the Greek
system.
"One purpose of orientation is to
assist the students with the transi-
tion from high school to college
Pretty said. "Another goal is to help
decrease the anxiety level, but
most importantly is for students to
take placement tests, meet faculty
and register for classes.
Also, during the visitors' stay,
the orientation staff has planned
different types of entertainment fo�
the students. A carnival including a
dance, games, prizes and perfor-
mances will take place at Scott
Hall.
"We are giving a new e-mail
training session where students will
go into a computer lab and learn
about using their e-mail account
Pretty said. "Also new this year, we
are offering a three day camp for
first-year students called the First
Year Voyage. We are taking a group
of students to Atlantic Beach to
work on self-esteem, team build-
ing, academic success, studying
skills and leadership develop-
ment
According to Pretty, only forty
five students will be allowed to go.
They must complete an application
form and essay. Seven from each
orientation session will be chosen
to participate in the camp.
The academic requirements
considered for incoming freshmen
include their high school GPA, class
rank and SAT scores.
"We're looking for a good, solid
student said Jessica Everett,
admissions counselor. "The aver-
ages for this year's freshmen are all
in the top half of their class. The
average in-state SAT score is about
102Q and out-of-state is. 1050, and
i.2 is the average GPA for all the
freshmen
"The big difference for this
incoming class is they will be under
the new retention standards said
Dorothy Muller, dean of
Undergraduate Studies. "With the
new academic standards, students
will become a sophomore after 30
hours instead of 32
According to the Undergraduate
Studies Office, to be in good acade-
mic standings students with up to

New dining hall planned for west campus
Building will house
community service desk
Brian P. Storrings
STAFF WRITER
The planned construction of the
new dining hall on west campus is
raising eyebrows, but not panic
among downtown restaurants.
The dining hall, which is slated
to be built at the site of the old
amphitheater, will have dining
facilities similar to Todd, and house
the Community Service Desk for
the West Campus community. In
addition, the new facility will have
a separate building with a conve-
nience store
According to Frank J. Salamon,
director of Dining Services, the
new dining hall will help expand
the services that currently exist.
'The current dining facilities in
Mendenhall will be moved to the
new facility, and the Spot will be
expanded into the current dining
hall, creating a food court and
entertainment center Salamon
said.
Owners and employees of
restaurants downtown said the do
not expect the presence of a uni-
versity dining location so close to
downtown establishments to

jas prices increase by 20 percent
Suppfy and demand
named as cause
Amsa Ghmiri
staff write!
Due to supply and demand, gas
prices have significantly increased
all over the country.
According to Edwin Clark, vice
president of Trade Oil Company, in
the past few months prices have
risen nearly 30 cents more than the
cost in March. In March gas prices
were as low as 75 cents per gallon
for unleaded gas.
"April had the biggest price
increase with around a 20 cent
increase Clark said.
Competitive mainstream gaso-
line companies like Texaco and
British PetroleumBPhave
prices that vary, ranging between 4
cents and 6 cents difference.
Independent gas companies
like the Trade Oil Company, which
was founded by Walter L.Williams,
former member of the board of
trustees at East Carolina
University, do not have to compete
with mainstream gas stations since
it is independently owned. Their
prices are usually 2 cents lower
than others.
Clark said the rise in gas prices
will not last much longer.
" I think the gas prices will
probably start coming down over
the next few weeks Clark said.
Though the gas prices around
Greenville have risen to an all time
high since 1990, business at the the
gas stations has not seemed to
change.
Although many think the gas
price increase is due to the war in
Kosovo, experts said it has nothing
to do with this increase. Clark said
this increase was strictly due to
supply and demand.
"If we were ever to go to war
with a country in the Middle East
like Saudi Arabia it would definite-
ly affect prices over here, but the
war in Kosovo has nothing to do
with it Clark said.
HIV father wins custody of son he infected
SALEM, Ore. (AP) � After a long
battle with the state, a former drug
addict who infected his wife with
HIV has won custody of their son,
who also contracted the virus.
The toddler, who turns 2 in July,
will be moved out of foster care and
placed in his father's home within
three to five months, according to
jhe state attorney general's office.
t "I'm excited. I can't wait said
Dennis Haynes. "I've done every-
thing I was supposed to do to get
him back. I know I can parent him
just fine
Not everyone involved in the
tangled custody dispute is happy
about the outcome.
The boy's mother, now divorced
from Haynes, also fought to get
back her son.
The foster parents, who have
reared the child almost since birth,
wanted to adopt him.
Child welfare workers and state
lawyers worry about the boy's
future, even as they prepare to
send him to his father's home.
� "In any case where a child has
known one set of parents, it's going
to be difficult for him to go into a
new world said Stephen Blixseth
of the attorney general's office.
Officials refused to discuss the
case in detail, citing confidentiality
issues. But court documents indi-
cate the state's concerns about the
child go beyond typical adjustment
anxieties.
Blixseth, writing in a recent let-
ter to a Marion County judge who
is overseeing the custody case,
cited concerns about the boy's
"fragile medical condition
He went on to say that his "very
life is at stake, and the utmost care
needs to be taken to ensure that
the father understands and com-
plies with the child's medical regi-
men
Haynes himself has been deal-
ing with the medical problems of
HIV. He takes daily doses of drugs
to stave off AIDS, just like his son.
The boy's mother, Paulette
Haynes, already had drawn atten-
tion from child welfare officials
over marijuana and methampheta-
mine use, as well as her stormy rela-
tionship with Dennis Haynes, who
had a long history of drug use.
Dennis and Paulette fought fre-
quently, state reports show, and the
tensions escalated during the latter
stages of her pregnancy with their
child. They filed for restraining
orders against each other about a
month before she delivered the
baby.
It was Paulette's doctor who first
raised doubts about her ability to
take care of the HIV-positive baby.
He alerted child welfare officials to
what he termed "a life and death
situation for the child The state
took custody two days after the
baby was born.
By all accounts, the baby not
only survived, but also thrived in a
specialized foster care home. The
foster parents, who were willing to
keep a child born with medical
problems, soon were being consid-
ered as potential long-term caretak-
ers.
Instead of working to reunite
the biological parents with their
child, as initially planned, the child
welfare agency launched legal
efforts to sever the ties.
, Angered, both Dennis and
Paulette Haynes went on the
offensive, accusing the state agency
of ignoring their efforts to build sta-
ble, drug-free lives.
But Dennis Haynes says he and
his wife grew further apart as she
failed to fully comply with state
requirements, and that failure
posed a barrier to regaining cus-
tody.
"I was heading on the road to
getting him back. She was busy
bucking the system he said. "I
was going to get him back, with or
without her. It ended up being
without her
Blixseth refused to discuss the
reasons behind the reversal. But he
stated in an April 23 letter to
Marion County Circuit Judge Greg
West that there was "insufficient
evidence to proceed" with the state
effort to terminate parental rights.
Dennis Haynes said a recent
psychological evaluation of him,
conducted by a clinical psycholo-
gist commissioned by the state, was
the key factor.
Haynes said he's fully aware of
the responsibility that will fall on
his shoulders when his son is
returned.
"He was given to me once, and I
lost him Haynes said. "Now, he's
being given to me again. I won't
lose him this time. He was meant
to be with me

Oregon legislature to hold first
hearing on same sex marriage
SALEM, Ore. (AP) � A hot social
issue moves into the Legislature's
spotlight this week when a House
panel holds its first hearing on a
proposed ballot measure barring
same-sex marriages.
The prospective constitutional
amendment would define marriage
as only the union between a man
and a woman.
The measure also would bar
courts from interpreting the state
constitution to require that unmar-
ried partners be entitled to the
same benefits as married couples.
The House Judiciary-Civil Law
Committee on Tuesday takes up
the proposal, and the benefits pro-
vision has a special significance in
Oregon.
The Oregon Court of Appeals
last December banned discrimina-
tion against homosexuals in the
workplace and required govern-
ments to provide insurance bene-
fits to same-sex domestic partners
of public employees.
The decision was the first in the
nation to interpret a state constitu-

" I am very excited and grateful
to receive this honor said Senator
Ed Warren.
" I have always made ECU one
of my top priorities
The board also voted to appoint
Dr. Glen G. Gilbert as dean of the
School of Health and Human
Performance. Gilbert will step into
the position on Aug. 1, and will
receive a yearly salary of $98,500.
Gilbert will be replacing Dr.
Christian Zauner, who is retiring
after five years as dean.
Gilbert had previously been
appointed as a tenured professor
and chair at ECU in August of 97.
He as published four texts either as
sole author or first author and 35
journal articles in other publica-
tions.
"After a national search for a
new dean, I was delighted that the
best candidate was already on our
campus said Richard Ringeisen,
vice chancellor for Academic
Affairs in a press release.
Gilbert was Director of the
Health and Promotion Technology
Laboratory at the University of
Maryland.
"I am very proud to be asked to
serve as dean Gilbert said.

The court said for government

the Oregon Constitution.
Rep. Kevin Mannix, R-Salem,
said the court decision could pave
the way for gay marriages and his
bill is designed to put a stop to it
He said Oregonians want no part of
permitting same-sex marriage and
would easily pass the measure at
the polls.
"We had a warning shot here
he said.
Mannix said chances of lawmak-
ers sending the measure to the bal-
lot arc "good to excellent" and that
he would expect 70 percent of vot-
ers to approve it.

"Seventy percent of our busi-

bars, there would be little impact
from the new facilities said Parker
Peace, a manager at Boli's Pizzeria
Sources at BW-3's also said there
was also little concern with the
impact of a downtown dining hall,
and some even felt that the
increased daytime student traffic in
downtown could be positive.
There have been some reports
of a petition among downtown
restaurants to hold construction of
the dining hall, but neither
Facilities Services nor the restau-
rants contacted knew anything
about the document.
According to officials in the
Facilities Services department,
plans for the building have several
steps to go through before the new.
dining option becomes a reality.
The budget to fund completion of
the building is still in the approval
process. When the final funds are
allotted cost estimates will be
made, followed by a demonstration
and fmalization of the design.
When the design is finalized, con-
struction bids will be taken and the
actual construction can begin.
According to Carol Hines, the
project coordinator of the West
Campus dining facility at Facilities
Services there is no projected date
as to when the construction will
begin.
"The dining hall is currently
pending budget approval, which is
causing the unknown date of con-
struction completion Hines said.

As many of you have noticed, gas prices have taken a turn and headed in the
upward direction. Since March, the cost of gasoline per gallon has increased from
.75 cents per gallon to $1.05 per gallon. According to officials, this price increase is
due to supply and demand. What supply and what demand? Gas companies and
vendors say that it is time for people to start taking vacations and for that simple
reason they can raise the cost of gas.
Just because the summer has finally arrived and we all want to go somewhere
that isn't Greenville and enjoy our well deserved vacations, that doesn't mean we
should fall victim to a commercial feeding frenzy.
One could understand if they were raising the prices of the gas in an attempt to
prevent people from traveling by automobile as often as we do - perhaps as a
reminder to respect the that environment automobile emissions is destroying. Each
time we get in our Chevys or Fords we arc adding to the total amount of air pollu-
tion.
Cars add to half of the total amount of man made pollution each year. Of the total
amount of air pollution, 77 percent if composed of carbon monoxide, 35 percent is
volatile organic compounds and 45 percent nitrogen oxide.
Effects of carbon monoxide arc dizziness, headaches and can even result in
death.
Our cars contribute to the 335,000 cases of lung disease each year -the third lead-
ing cause of death.
So, next time you want to ramble around the town or even the country, consider
your alternatives. Public transportation is available in Greenville, and ECU buses
make stops at several popular locations . You could even get those legs in shape for
summer by walking or riding a bicycle.

OPINION
Susan M.
Wright
Cinder block walls forever
The destiny of a person after
one gets the blessed diploma is
unknown, but it almost surely
involves morning meetings and
commuting before noon.
Eagerly anticipated and the sub-
ject of hopeful prayers, summer has
finally arrived. It is a time of rest
and relaxation, beach trips and
summer sun. Most students spend
their summer days sleeping late
and recuperating from two long
and hard semesters of studying
back to back. A few, a dedicated
few, give their summer to scholas-
tics. I am one of the few, and I am
wishing that I wasn't feeling so
dedicated during registration.
Why do we push ourselves all
year and then press on our entire
summer? Is it because the idea of
spending twelve months of the
year in classrooms is undeniably
appealing? Do we cringe at the
idea of sleeping in every morning
for a week? If it is true that every-
body needs a rest, I think that all
the students in summer school are
making a grave mistake.
My reason for enrolling in sum-
mer school is simple. I wanted to
graduate before my social security
kicked in. As the cursed alarm
clock sang out with a sick and
twisted glee at 6:30 in the morning,
I began to reevaluate my reasons
for embarking on a long and tortur-
ous journey. I can't even begin to
fathom, at 6:30, why I willingly
gave up the rare opportunity to
spend three months of endless
bliss sleeping until noon. There is
nothing wrong with spending a
decent majority of one's adult life
enrolled in a university. Nobody
knows what they want to do with
their lives at twenty anyway, so
why do we push so hard to get a
diploma?
The destiny of a person after
one gets the blessed diploma is
unknown, but it almost surely
involves morning meetings and
commuting before noon. Breakfast
at one becomes a thing of the past

situation, I have no idea why I am �

Maybe I can find another way to

am a true believer in the
healing power of nature, and
since we do not live in a har-
monious way with our sur-
roundings, human society can
get overbearing sometimes.
Look around you. Do you see
beauty or ugliness? I hope you see
a bit of both, otherwise you are not
looking fairly. I see Greenville, and
it baffles me to observe the polar
opposites coexisting everywhere.
Sometimes people are oblivious
to what is really happening around
them. For example, nature. Yes, the
Freedom surrounds us
bounty of Gaia, Mother Earth, is
missed by nearly everyone in our
community as they get caught up
in their professional lives. North
Carolina has some incredible sights
and it is up to you to seek them out
and experience them.
I am a true believer in the heal-
ing power of nature, and since we
do not live in a harmonious way
with our surroundings, human soci-
ety can get overbearing sometimes.
I want you to imagine a picture of
this school nestled in the folds of a
sparkling clean river. In fact, I hear
that ECU was originally slated to
be in Little Washington on a slight-
ly cleaner waterfront.
How many incredible experi-
ences would be waiting for you just
outside your door? In fact those
incredible experiences are there,
you just have to look for them. Try
Pea Island, Goose Creek State Park
or Grandfather Mountain. It is
extremely important to be obser-
vant of where you live and how you
live, and the easiest way to raise
your quality of life.
Did you ever wonder how the
Tar river progressed to it's present
state of degradation? Why you can
not simply run down to the water
and jump in? The level of pollution
laid on our nearest waterway causes
me much grief, especially for the
wildlife struggling for some sem-
blance of existence in the muck of
the riverbank.
We need to be vocal towards the
politicians who govern the environ-
mental aspects of our surrounding
area, especially the ones who also
happen to own the hog farms and
major industry of eastern North
Carolina. There are no reasons but
greed and ignorance for the state of
the earth around us, and I hope that
we can take it upon ourselves to be
responsible for these conditions.
Personally, at the end of a
semester I have butterflies in
my stomach when I approach
the book buyback trailers.
President Harry S. Truman once
had a sign on his desk that read
"The Buck Stops Here Well
friends, at ECU the buck doesn't
stop � it doesn't even slow down.
Anyone who has been on campus
for any length of time knows what I
am talking about. Have you ever
had to deal with the financial aid,
registrars or cashiers offices? Have
you ever tried to drop or add a
class? Have you ever tried to sell
back a book? If you answered yes to
any of the above questions, it is
likely that you have experienced
frustration. No matter which office
you visit, no matter which person
you speak to, it always seems that
you need to see someone else.
"Pass the Buck seems to be the
new ECU motto. This leads mc to
my question �why are we the stu-
dents, seemingly punished for
being students? One would think
that with all the money paid for
tuition that services around campus
would be easy to use, and
that help would be readily avail-
able.
Take my week so far for exam-
ple. Yesterday I decided that
French was not my cup of tea, and
that it would be in my best interest
to drop it. So, I proceeded over to
the registrar's office. They said that
I would need a drop slip to drop the
class. Fair enough. So, I went to my
advisor's office to get the slip, and
he was not there. So, I tracked him
down and he was nice enough to
approve the drop. Then his secre-
tary tells me that I need to take the
form to undergraduate studies.
"Oh, you need to go to the room
across the hall said the reception-
ist. So, I continue on my quest to
drop a class. I proceed to the room
across the hall, where I am given a
blank look and asked, "Why are
you coming here to drop a class?
You need to go to Whichard Grrrr.
Mustering all my self-control, I
eased over to Whichard to present
my drop slip. After a fun series of
questions about why I want to drop
the class. Then, I decided to try to
sell back the book. Yes, I was going
to try to sell back the French book.
Seems simple enough, right? Oh
no! Stop right there. It was not sim-
ple because I am still in possession
of the book. Apparently I need to
stand on my head and do cart-
wheels to get back the money I
paid for that French book. Each
time I go by the student stores to
try to sell back my book � and the
total times so far is three � I expe-
rience the cruel pain of rejection as
the cashier shakes her head "no
For one reason or another each
time they will no buy that book
back.
Personally, at the end of a
semester I have butterflies in my
stomach when I approach the book
buyback trailers. I am filled with
angst as I approach and rage as I
leave. Yes, book buyback is mali-
cious.
I love ECU. I think it's a great
university and its students have a
lot to be proud of. However, it
seems like it should be a little easi-
er to get the help you need from
the school you love.

Even after his landlord sent over an exter-
minator two times over the last two months,
Michael Huez, a sophomore at ECU, feared
going into the kitchen at night Switching on
the light would reveal brazen cockroaches
crawling everywhere. Baths were best avoid-
ed as bugs were always piled in the tub.
Cockroaches have been blamed for the
rise of asthma among poor children living in
cities in flic United States. Local allergists
and exterminators agree that cockroaches
can become a health problem, even in this
part of the country, but can be prevented
with the help of professionals and through
sanitation in your household.
Cockroaches are an important health
problem because the roaches have a bad
odor, they put germs in our food and bring
sickness, such as food poisoning and diar-
rhea. Some people arc also allergic to cock-
roaches and may get asthma, according to
Viedical research.
A study conducted by the National
Association of Housing and Redevelopment
in JulyAugust 1998, says there is mounting
evidence that cockroach exposure causes
the worsening of children's asthma. The
study found that children allergic to roaches
and who ere heavily exposed to them at
home, suttered 3.4 times more hospitaliza-
tions than other children! They missed
school more often, suffered more sleep loss,
and needed 78 percent more unscheduled
asthma-related medical visits.
"A lot of children are born with the abili-
I
ty to become allergic to cockroaches said
Dr. James Metzger. Metzger works for
ECU's Allergy, Asthma and Immunology
medical department. "A skin test could
show if people arc allergic, but the child still
needs high exposure to a lot of cockroaches
to become hospitalized Metzger said.
Asthma causes the airways of the lungs to
become irritated and swollen enough to
cause difficulty breathing. If uncontrolled,
asthma can progress to the point where the
airways are swollen shut. Indeed, asthma
kills hundreds of American children each
year. Doctors often can treat asthma attacks
with medication, but prevention requires
changes at home, such as removing or
decreasing common irritating factors like
cockroaches.
According to Metzger, the problem of
cockroach-related asthma incidents is not
common in this part of the country, but is
more common in urbanized, inner-city
areas.
Dr. Eric Brestel, who works at the Allergy
East Clinic in Greenville, agrees. He said
that he did not have a lot of asthma patients
with a cockroach background he is aware of.
"I could not find a significant correlation
between asthma and cockroaches here in
Greenville Brestel said.
But some exterminators believe other-
wise. For example, William Davis, who has
owned B&T Pest Control for 12 years,
thinks that the problem is not only limited
to big cities but also occurs in this area.
"Especially low-income areas with dense
population have the same problem of high
infestation Davis said. "Most home own-
ers in those areas don't have enough money
to call up a professional According to Davis
this might also be true for college students
who live in apartments and lack in their
every day clean up process.
The National Association of Housing and
Redevelopment study also found that chil-
dren, whose average age was six years, were
-
j
;
more likely to be allergic to cockroaches (37
percent) than to house mites (35 percent) or
cats (23 percent).
According to Jim Perry, a local extermi-
nator at Terminix, the problem is not a big-
city problem only.
"It just depends on the person's immune
system and on the amount of roaches
Perry said.
There is no efficient way to prevent
cockroaches from being introduced into
buildings.
"They can get in through any little crack
or with bringing in used furniture and they
can survive on a little crumb for a few days
Perry said. "It doesn't really have anything
to do with how clean you are as a person, but
more of letting the problem getting out of
hand Perry, as an regional manager for
Terminix for over 10 years, said that the
company gets approximately five calls a day
regarding the problem of cockroaches.
According to Davis, whose company gets
about 10 calls a day, there are many different
ways cockroaches can find their way into
your home.
"It's a matter of how mobile people arc
nowadays Davis said. "Children and stu-
dents coming from school can carry them
(roaches) home in their book bags, and
boxes and containers are another means fof
transport for bugs
Dwanda Hinds has been a manager of
Wilson Acres Apartments since 1980.
Wilson Acres, a complex consisting of 20
buildings with 146 apartments is mainly
occupied by ECU college students.
"Some people accidentally bring the
bugs into my apartments when they move in
from their old places and some get them in
with grocery shopping bags Hinds said.
"One third of our buildings is sprayed once
a month but most of the times single spray-
ing of the place is not enough
Both Perry and Davis agree that it is
almost impossible to get rid of the pests

Many ECU students pass by a
white can on their way to class
without giving it one thought.
What they may not realize about
that white trailer is that it saves the
university over one million pounds
in waste.
According to the ECU recycling
web site, "The goal of the ECU
Recycling Program is to reduce
waste and minimize the universi-
ty's impact on local landfills
The ECU Recycling Program,
sponsored by the Office of
Environmental Health and Safety,
has been around since 1991. The
program has taken many forms on
campus. There are many recycling
bins in every classroom building,
including The School of Medicine.
The trailer that serves as a collec-
tion bin moves every two days from
CoHegc Hill to Greene Hall and to
the campus mall every week.
Materials such as aluminum, paper,
glass and plastic are recyclable and
cm be placed in these bins For
information on special recycling
pickups, call 328-6096.
"We have bins all over the
place said Roy Briley, a member
of the three-man team that collects
the materials from the bins.
"Everyone should be able to use
them.
.a�
Joyner Library, Mendenhall
Student Center and the Student
Recreation Center also offer ways
to recycle. They take part in the
recycling program by displaying
collection bins and by recycling
rtieir,own,waste products . �
Oneof thereasonSfor' the
;Uiiberncntation of the recycling
program is that the North Carolina
legislature has made it mandatory
for all state employees and agen-
cies to recycle materials with a goal
of 40 percent total waste reduction
by the year 2000.
paper (office, computer, newspa-
per) are accepted. A three man
team goes around collecting these
materials which account for 27 per-
cent of ECU's waste. The teams
are made up of staff, though work
study students are also employed
for the program.
Cardboard and scrap metal
should be placed beside the near-
est dumpsters. There is now a fine
for putting large amounts of card-
board into the landfills, so it saves
the university unnecessary money
if cardboard is recycled.

accepted for recycling. Items are
separated into various categories.

The money that is gained from
the recycled materials goes back
into the program.
"We use the money to maintain
our equipment like our trailer and
metal containers said Tom
Pohlman, who is in charge of the
recycling program and announced
the arrival of a new recycling vehi-
cle this week. This newest addition
to ECU recycling vehicles is sup-
posed to serve a dual purpose by
not only collecting paper and card-
board, but also beverage containers
in plastic and glass form.
The advantages of recycling
include saving natural resources,
energy and landfill space.
Recycling also helps reduce the
cost of trash disposal and raw prod-
ucts. Pollution is also decreased as a
result
"Recycling is just the right thing
to do Pohlman said.
The Office of Environmental
Health and Safety is not the only
group recycling. Many offices at
ECU recycle the material they use.
Facility Services recycled 15,000
pounds of white goods last year,
including such things as broken air
conditioners, scrap metal and vari-
ous other materials. Facility
Services also managed to divert
52,000 pounds of tires, batteries, oil
filters and motor oil from the land-
fill last year.
Materials Management was able
to recycle over 2,000 pounds of
printer cartridges and other office
waste. The Grounds Department
recycled and composted 724,000
pounds of yard waste, most of
which was the result of hurricane
damage. Dining Services managed
to recycle 63,000 pounds of cook-
ing oil.
Announcements are usually cir-
culated to the faculty and staff to

some records after being released
last week. The flick beat out The

Talking about dollars, the 20th

Science and technology have pro-

environmentally safe chemical
options. Not only can a properly
applied chemical treatment elimi-
nate the pest problem, but it can
also leave an invisible barrier pro-
tecting your property from future
infestation.
Davis' company used a tech-
nique called Integrated Pest
Management, which provides a sys-
tematic approach to eliminating a
pest problem. According to Davis, a
combination of effective and
affordable pest control options are
implemented while maintaining a
safe and healthy environment for
the home or business. "We tell the
home owners to leave the house for

use a lot of natural stuff, so the risk

New top recruits
heading to Greenville

1999freshman
athletes look promising
KtANK II KM) RICKS
ST.M-I- nHI I IK
ECU athletics has put together a
very big recruiting year, in numbers
as well as talent. The football team
has nearly thirty new recruits, and
the swim teams have almost twen-
ty. Among these incoming fresh-
men are some highly touted ath-
letes.
Kelly Hardy, a defensive back
from Kinston High School, is one of
this years' Pirate freshmen. Hardy
is ranked a top twenty football
prospect in the state, and was
recruited by ECU and Penn State,
but chose the Pirates. Coach Logan
wanted Hardy for his raw speed.
Hardy was the NC State 3-A track
champion in the 100-meters last
year. Hardy, along with the other
Pirate defensive backs, will likely
be the only freshmen to play this
year.
The ECU swim teams also
signed some big names for the
upcoming season. The men arc
bringing in three Junior National
Qualifiers with Pat Bonds, Casey
Charles and Chris Miller. The
women have signed YMCA nation-
al finalist Leslie Baronklin, along
with a pair of Junior National
Qualifiers, Aryn Letterman and
Abby Stallworth.
"We are extremely happy with
the athletes we are bringing in in
the fall said Rick Kobe, head
coach.
Coach Kobe is not the only ECU
head coach who is happy with his
recruiting class. Though first year
basketball coach Bill Herrion only
needed one recruit, he managed to
pull in some new talent. Travis
Holcomb-Faye, a 6'1 point guard
from Winston Salem, has signed a
letter of intent to play for the
Pirates. Holcomb-Faye averaged 16
points, 8 assists and 6 rebounds in
his senior season, leading RJ
Reynolds High School to a 24-4
record.
"We are very happy to sign
Travis Herrion said. "lie's the
type of pointguard that will fit into
our system and our style of play
On the women's side of basket-
ball, head coach Dee Gibson has
just signed a pair of Jamaican junior
college transfers to play for the
Pirates. Tamilla Murray and Sancha
Cargill helped lead Tallahassee
Community College to within one
win of a National Junior College
tournament birth.
Murray is ranked among the top
10 wing players in the junior college
game right now, while Cargill is a
top 50 power forward.
"We were looking to add athleti-
cism and we definitely did it with
these two said Gibson.
Kate Veazey, one of Virginia's top
junior tennis players, has signed a
letter to attend ECU and play for
head coach Tom Morris. Veazey has
high school experience as well as
displayed Mid-Atlantic USTA abil-
ities. Veazey helped her team win a
state championship in her freshmen
year, and played first seed in singles
and doubles through high
school.Veazcy is ranked 29th in sin-
gles and No. 1 in doubles by the
Mid-Atlantic USTA girls 18 section.
"We expect Kate to play an
important role next year Morris
said.
This year's recruits seem poised
to carry ECU athletics into the new
millennium. All of ECU's coaches
arc excited about their incoming
class and are prepared to help these
recruits become better athletes and
students.

Sumo wrestler receives yokozuna status
Musashimaru
recommended on
Monday
TOKYO (AP) Hawaii-born sumo
wrestler Musashimaru was unani-
mously recommended Monday for
promotion to yokozuna, or grand
champion, the top rank in the tradi-
tional Japanese sport.
Sumo's board of directors is
meeting Wednesday when it is
expected to act on the recommen-
dation of its advisory board.
The 488-pound Musashimaru
on Sunday pushed out grand cham-
pion Akebono, also Hawaiian born,
to win the 15-day Summer Grand
Sumo Tournament with a 13-2
record.
That was the fifth tournament
title for the 6-foot-3 Musashimaru.
Musashimaru, or Fiamalu
Penitani, who already holds the sec-
ond highest rank of ozcki, or cham-
pion, won the previous tournament
in a 13-2 record. Winning two con-
secutive tournaments as ozeki is
one of the key requirements for
promotion to yokozuna.
Tyson released from
Maryland jail Monday
Drug evaluation
condition of release
ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) Mike
Tyson was released Monday from a
Maryland jail after serving 3 12
months of a one-year sentence for
assaulting two motorists.
The former heavyweight cham-
pion was released after an Indiana
judge terminated his probation for a
1992 rape conviction.
Superior Court Judge Patricia
Gifford of Marion County approved
Tyson's release Friday, but the deci-
sion was not announced until
Monday, said Becky Wagner, the
judge's assistant chief clerk.
Tyson was granted parole by
Maryland on Friday. Indiana
authorities needed to approve the
decision before Tyson could go
home for the first time since he was
sentenced Feb. 5.
Tyson had pleaded no contest to
misdemeanor assault charges stem-
ming from a minor traffic accident
in Gaithersburg. He was sentenced
to one year in the Montgomery
County jail, and another 60 days
were added as punishment for vio-
lating probation for the rape convic-
tion.
The Maryland Parole
Commission voted 5-1 Friday to
grant Tyson's release.
The boxer will be under parole
supervision until next February,
said Leonard A. Sipes, spokesman
for the Maryland Department of
Public Safety and Correctional
Services. He also must meet with
probation officers over the next two
years.
As part of the conditions for his
release, Tyson will be subject to
urine testing at least twice a week
and unannounced home visits by
state authorities, Sipes said. He
must also receive permission before
leaving Maryland, complete a psy-
chiatric evaluation and undergo
anger management treatment.
Tyson manager Shelley Finkel
said Monday he will "have to sit
down and talk with Mike about his
boxing plans
Asked if he thought Tyson
might fight this year, Finkel said, "I
haven't seen any reason for him not
Tyson has three fights remaining
on a deal with the MGM Grand in
Las Vegas and at least three more
fights with Showtime.
The 32-year-old boxer last
fought Jan. 16 and was behind on
all three cards before he knocked
out Francois Botha in the fifth
round at Las Vegas.
Wagner said Gifford and Tyson's-
lawyers had agreed that the jail
time already served by Tyson in
Maryland for an assault conviction
satisfied the penalty he incurred for
violating Indiana probation for the
rape conviction.
The agreement releasing Tyson
from his Indiana probation was
struck originally in March by.
Gifford, Tyson's probation officer:
and his Indianapolis lawyer, James
Voyles.
That agreement allowed Tyson�
to be released from probation after �
he served his 30-day jail sentence in �
Maryland, Wagner said. No addi-
tional hearing was needed on the
matter.
Barcelona to deploy 6,000 j
police for United-Bayern final
Spanish fear hooligans
in EU soccer final
BARCELONA, Spain (AP)
Fearing fan trouble, Spanish
authorities plan to deploy 6,000
police officers for this week's
European Champions League final
between Manchester United and
Bayern Munich, a police
spokesman said Monday.
The officers, mainly from the
National Police and the paramili-
tary Civil Guard, are being posted
through the Mediterranean city and
at airports and main road exits over
the next three days, spokesman
Eladio Jareno said.
On Wednesday, 2,500 officers
will be on duty at FC Barcelona's
Camp Nou stadium, which holds
just under 100,000 spectators.
English soccer club fans have
one of the worst reputations for
causing trouble in Europe.
Up to 30,000 United fans and a
similar number from Germany are
expected to descend on the city
over the next two days by road and
plane.
On Monday, pockets of support-
ers could be seen along the city's
colorful central Ramblas boulevard
Jareno said here had been no
reported incidents so far.
Both sides are chasing record
triple trophies. United has already
won its league and national cup,
while Bayern has won the
Bundesliga and is in the final of the
German cup next month. It has
more than 20 years since either side
won the European Champions
League, the continent's most
prized club trophy.
United players got the first taste
of the security presence when
"Stop messing lads; They (the
police) are super efficient and
they'll kick us out of here in no
time unless we keep it together
Manchester United soccer fans
dozens of riot police flanked the
soccer squad as it was whisked
through Barcelona's airport
Monday.
Up to 200 people, many just-
arrived travelers themselves, joined
a handful of reporters and singing
United supporters to greet the play-
ers at the airport.
But with the police obviously !�
taking no nonsense, there was little E
time for autographs or photo poses-
as the squad was channeled;
through the crowd to a waiting
coach that was to take them to the �
seaside resort of Sitges outside of
Barcelona where the team is to be :
based.
Although it was obvious that
many of the United fans had had
plenty to drink while awaiting the
arrival of their heroes, there were no
incidents.
At one point police officers
looked set to detain two supporters
who appeared unwilling to heed
their instructions but the situation
was defused rapidly when one of
the United fans screamed: "Stop
messing lads; They (the police) are
super efficient and they'll kick us
out of here in no time unless we
keep it together
Many more soccer fans might
have turned out at the airport had
United's arrival not coincided with
multitudinous celebrations in the;
city after FC Barcelona this week
end won its second Spanish league ;

If you are looking for something to
give you a little exercise for the
summer, look no further. ECU has
some club sports that could be your
answer.
During the summer months,
ECU's Ultimate Frisbee teams
wind down with a coed summer
league. "The summer league is just
a time to meet new people, guys
and girls alike said Jeff Wilhclm,
president.
Wilhelm also stresses the fact
that the summer league is coed, so
guys and girls will be playing
together. The summer league is for
new players who may not even
know how to throw a frisbee.
"We are trying to generate some
interest for an awesome sport said
Wilhelm.
A few summer players may
become interested enough to par-
ticipate in the spring or in the fall,
which is what the club wants.
"We are just trying to help peo-
ple learn the fundamentals said
Michael Wiegand. "We're out to
help them learn to play and to
recruit new players
Both the male and female teams
finished the year in the nations top
11 and the teams are always very
good. ECU pays for all travel,
which ends up being about four
tournaments per semester. The
teams practice on Tuesdays,
Thursdays, and Sundays from 5-7
at the new intramural fields behind
the freshmen parking lot
Another alternative is East
Carolina Roller Hockey, a club that
will begin next year. Sportsworld of
Greenville holds pick-up hockey
games every Thursday night and
league games on Mondays. The
cost for pick-up games is $3. Many
of next years club members attend
the pick-up games.
"There are some good games
out here (Sportsworld) said Tim
Baize, the club's vice president
"Most people who try it will love it
and come back

Rouge regional will advance to
face the winner of the Alabama
regional, where top 5 nationally
seed and host Alabama is the
favorite for the tournament victory.
Baton Rouge will be the Pirates
second step to the College Worid
Series in Omaha, NE.
"There are going to be really
good teams in Baton Rouge said
Keith LeClair, ECU's second year
head coach. "We'll have to play
awfully well. We will go down there
with the right approach and play
with some confidence
Confidence was accumulated
during the Pirates' four CAA tour-
nament games in Kinston.
It seems quite impossible to
mention someone individually
from this unique Pirate baseball
team.
"It was just part of an all-day
team effort said third baseman
Eric Bakich, who scored the first
home run in Sunday's sweep over
the Monarchs, a homer that should
become tone-setting throughout
the rest of the game.
In front of an enthusiastic crowd
of approximately 2,500 ECU fans at
Grainger Stadium, the Pirates
opened the game with six unan-
swered runs in the first inning and
never had to look back to give up
their lead. Parking the car along the
�� utfield wall would not have been a
recommendable thing to do on that
record-setting day for the Pirates.
On the day, ECU set or tied school
records for team hits (24), home
runs (6) and individual at-bats (7 by
two players). The Pirates also broke
or tied CAA Tournament single-
game records for runs (21), RBI
(20), combined runs (34), combined
runs (34), combined home runs
(10), hits (24), combined hits (37)
and team tournament batting aver-
ige (.387).
Despite ECU's great team
effort�-everyone of the Pirates'
Steve Salargo hit one of six Pirate home runs against ODU in the CAA final on Sunday.

themselves: hitting .556 (10-18) in
the four tourney games, with one
double, one homer, six runs and six
RBI.
"James (Molinari) is a great play-
er and he deserves this victory and
the award said junior shortstop
Lee Delfino, who played with a
black eye and broken bones after
he was hit by a ball during practice
before Friday's 4-3 semi-final win
over ODU. "When the ball hit me,
1 knew I had some broken bones
said Delfino, who joined ECU's
home run club in the eighth inning.
"I was really anxious to play in the
Championship game today
According to Delfino, the doctors
allowed him to play as soon as the
swelling went down.
Seemingly unstoppable, Steve
Salargo put in a game-high four
runs (4-6) and two RBI to tie the
ECU single-season mark set in
1985 by Winfred Johnson with 75
RBI. Joining Salargo, Joe Hastings
had a career day as he went 3-4 with
two runs and three RBI while
Delfino and John Williamson each
added three hits a piece.
Hastings homer in the sixth
inning to the right field was one of
the best hits he has ever had, he -
said.
"I never hit one that far. Not m��
college Hastings said. "I'm glad !
that the coach gave me a chance �
today. It was an amazing feeling
with all those people behind you
According to coaches and players
alike, the CAA tourney was just one
first step to their ultimate goal
which is the College World Series
in Omaha. "This is a nice stop on
the way, but we got our goal in
mind Salargo said.
Southern University will be
ECU's next stop, and Sunday's vrc
tory gave the team tremendous
confidence.
"We can beat any team in the
nation Bakich said. "We are that
