An ECU student was kidnapped,
robbed and held against his will at
the Motel 6 this weekend.
According to a Greenville Police

$90 million cleanup
slated for Baltimore
BALTIMORE (AP) After a
cleanup effort that consumed 10
years and about $90 million,
AlliedSignal Inc. has permission to
develop its old chemical plant site,
27 prime acres jutting into
Baltimore's Inner Harbor.
Company officials, and state and
federal officials, gathered Monday at
the site to talk about the cleanup and
what it means to the waterfront.
The chromium that pollutes the
site has been sealed in underground
walls of clay and layers of plastic,
making it safe for development in the
view of the Environmental
Jane Nishida, state secretary of the
environment, said the AlliedSignal
effort, carried out without state or fed-
eral aid, "is a success in preventing
continued degradation of the envi-
ronment while restoring a contami-
nated site to a useable property in a
desirable location on the waterfront
The plant processed chrome ore
for 140 years before closing in 1985.
Unknown quantities of chromium
escaped from the plant and were
washed into the soil, resulting in a con-
stant stream of the dangerous heavy
metal into the Baltimore Harbor.
To stop the pollution, the com-
pany dug trenches 60 feet or more
to bedrock and filled them with
three feet of clay. The area was
sealed at the top with 15 acres of a
multi-layer cap five feet thick.
Extraction wells pump polluted
water from the ground for process-
ing at a treatment facility.
Recent EPA tests have not
found any chromium flowing from
Despite the EPA's seal of
approval and the prime location,
fears about possible future liability
if pollution control measures fail
may make it difficult for
AlliedSignal to find a developer.
Baltimore City Solicitor Otho
Thompson said last week the city
should not take responsibility for
roads or a public park on the land
because it would be open to a
future lawsuit if pollutants leak
from the site.
C. William Struever, a developer
of several projects along the harbor,
said the city's position might make
developers squeamish about envi-
"This location is magnificent,
fabulous Struever said. "But the
city's position makes it much
tougher for the project to succeed
Tom Crain, a spokesman for
AlliedSignal, said the company is not
worried about finding a developer.
"The land, which was unuseable
at one time, is now a prime piece of
property in one of the East Coast's
most appealing cities he said.
State and federal officials are also
positive about the cleanup effort that'
AlliedSignal carried out undera 1982
"The AlliedSignal remediation at
Baltimore Harbor has features that
the EPA would like to see in many
more cleanups across the country

Court ordered to reconsider
Lemmons's death sentence
GOLDSBORO, N.C. (AP) The
U.S. Supreme Court, using a deci-
sion it made earlier this month, has
ordered the state to reconsider the
death sentence of a Wayne County
man sentenced partially on the
hearsay testimony of an accomplice.
The court told the state
Supreme Court to reconsider the
sentence of Edward Lemons, 26,
who was convicted in August 1995
of the shooting deaths of Bobby
Gene Stroud, 38, and Margaret
Daniels Strickland, 35, both of
Goldsboro. Testimony showed the
murders were the result of a drug
deal gone sour.
The court said the sentence
should be reconsidered in light of
its June 10 decision in Lilly vs.
Virginia. In that case, justices limit-
ed the use of out-of-court state-
ments by accomplices who admit
to some wrongdoing but say the
defendant played the primary role.
Neither of Lemons' accomplices
testified against him. But state-
ments they made to others were
brought out during the sentencing
phase of the trial.

PRISTINA Yugoslavia (AP)
Even as peacekeepers began build-
ing the foundations of peace in
Kosovo, they couldn't escape the
remains of war. Two NATO soldiers
were killed in an explosion as they
cleared ammunition from a desert-
The British army's Gurkha sol-
diers were the first allied deaths
since the peacekeepers entered
Kosovo on June 12. But dozens of
civilians already have died in similar
explosions of land mines and
booby traps since the peacekeepers
began to take control.
Two civilians also were killed in
Monday's blast, and another was
injured. He was being treated in a
British field hospital in Pristina. The
explosion occurred in a school in the
village of Negrovce, 30 kilometers
(20 miles) west of Pristina.
British peacekeepers were inves-
tigating the cause of the blast, and
withheld the names of the soldiers of
the 69th Gurkha Field Squadron
riflemen from Nepal attached to the
British peacekeeping force pend-
ing notification of their relatives.
U.S. President Bill Clinton, visit-
ing the former Yugoslav republic of
Slovenia, telephoned British Prime
Minister Tony Blair to offer his con-
dolences, officials said.
In spite of the blast, peace
appeared stronger than ever, with
Albanian rebels pledging in a disar-
mament pact with NATO to lay
down their arms. The deal came just
hours after the last of the 40,000 Serb
troops left Kosovo.
The 20,000 or so NATO-led
KFOR troops now in Kosovo said
they were moving beyond initial
attempts to quell the violence and
were beginning to look ahead by
establishing security and laying the
groundwork for democratic elections.
"Very soon, KFOR will be the
only military security presence here.
That is how it should be peace-
keeping chief Lt. Gen. Mike Jackson
One day earlier, Jackson received
both confirmation that the Yugoslav
military had withdrawn its forces
from Kosovo and a pledge from the
Kosovo Liberation Army to disband,
put down its weapons and join efforts
to establish peace in Kosovo.
With the Serb forces' retreat con-
firmed, NATO officially ended its
air campaign. And on Monday, the
Belgrade government took a recip-
rocal step, asking parliament to end
the state of war declared the day
NATO launched its airstrikes, the
state Tanjug news agency reported.
Since March 24, the state of war
has banned men of military age from
leaving the country, let the army take
over key institutions and subjected
the news media to censorship.
Still, reports of a media crackdown
persisted. An umbrella group for
Yugoslavia's fledgling independent
radio and television broadcasters said
the government was forcing stations
replace their newscasts with those of
the state-controlled networks.
Meanwhile, the KLA agreed to a
broad demilitarization that will
require them to leave their check-
points and halt any military activity
unless the peacekeepers approve it
Although they can keep their
handguns, they agreed not to use
explosives, to put remaining
weapons in storage sites verified by
NATO and to clear mine fields and
booby traps within seven days.
Already, many in the rank and
file seemed to be complying.

praised the agreement, and set about
the work of building peace.
His tasks include getting elec-

Vieira de Mello said one of hit

A significant example of how the
summer camps promote ECU recruit-
ment is Tarrick Cox, Director of
Legislator's School for Youth
Leadership Development. The
legislator's School is one of several
leadership summer camps at ECU
along with Upward Bound and
Project Excel. Cox attended the
Legislator's School in 1988 and cited
his experience as the primary reason
he chose to attend ECU as an under-
graduate student, eventually graduat-
ing from ECU in 19.
According to Cox, "the basis of the
school's leadership curriculum is The
7 Habits of Highly Effective People
by Dr. Stephen R. Ckvey There are
two sessions of the Legislator's
School. .Session one is for rising 8th
and 9th graders and session two is for
high school students from grades 10
"Participants are nominated b)
guidance counselors at their respec-
tive schools Cox said. The 1997
interviews of Legislator's School par-
ticipants were used to provide materi-
al contained in The 7 Habits ol
Highly Effective Teens by Sean
Covey (Dr. Covey's son). The pro-
gram, and Cox specifically, arc
thanked in the Acknowledgement
section on page 248 of the book. Cm
believes the success of the prograrr
can be reflected in the feedback ol
"A lot of parents saw a big change
in their child from the time (he)

Examples of parents' comments are

something needs to
As ECU prepares for the new budget year to begin, a lot of money
is being used to construct new buildings and renovate of old ones.
While everyone enjoys progress, the price for such progress
inevitably means more construction. It seems that everywhere you
turn on campus, there are bright orange barrels and yellow tape
warning us to stay away from a new construction site. Also, these
projects that are being planned are funded with student fees.
Because student fees are used to help finance some of these pro-
jects, we wonder why the students were not consulted as to which
projects were slated for approval.
For instance, renovations to the Student Health Center will cost
$4.1 million dollars. Perhaps the students would have rather had
that much money allocated toward new dining halls. Maybe it
would have been more feasible to take the money that students pay
every semester and use it for the much debated, yet much needed
parking deck. Although, the university plans to construct a new
west campus dining hall and start renovations on Jones residence
hall, these things will not be undertaken until the Student Health
Center is renovated and the new Science and Technology building
The new Strength and Conditioning Center will cost an estimat-
ed $8.5 million, but it is being funded by private donations.
Therefore, the Athletic Department is given the freedom of con-
ducting their project in any way they see fit. That simply should not
be the case with the Student Health Center, and any other projects
the university decides to fund with student fees.
It is bad enough when the student fees are increased every year,
but when the students do not have any input as to what those fees
are used for, something needs to change.
Just say no to wigs

I must admit, it has been a while
since I've lived in Greenvillemore
than 20 years according to my diplo-
ma. It seems like the trees were
much smaller on campus back then.
I know there were a lot less people

It had a fireplace in the garage

The dang rents have gone
through the roof since I left! I was
paying my fair share � $25 a month
and we sail had to mow our own
lawn! Now, the apartment that I live
in is nearly $400 a month, and it
doesn't even have a Ping-Pong table.
Greenville is such a beautiful
town. I don't remember it being so
attractive. Perhaps the season and
the people have a lot to do with it. I
have met some of the friendliest
people since I've been back.
Perhaps I've learned something in
the past few years � walking with
my head up, greeting folks with a
smile, and not taking life too serious-
ly. The only attitudes that I've run
into are ECU Attitudes � I like to
call them "Spirit I suppose there is
just a little "pirate" in all of us. Even
the folks in the cafeteria are friendly,
they smile as they take your money.
Back when I was here in my past life,
we staged a huge boycott on the
main yard because our cafeteria food
stunk! We all called it the Ptomaine
Hilton. We must have made our
point because they've got much bet-
ter food, now, everywhere you look is
a cafeteria. No wonder so many peo-
ple are overweight
I'm disappointed with the down-
town area though. You used to be
able to shop downtown. Now, it
seems you can only drink and nibble.
Shopkeepers should know that when
people drink, they want to shop -
haven't they heard of symbiotic rela-
tionships? The shops that are down-
town don't seem to inviting to the
"average" shopper. The first place
that I ever had a job was Bissette's
drug store. Now, Bissette's (board)
Store is a wig shop! Why did they
put a board over the word "drug"? Is
this a new city ordinance? Maybe if
they'd leave the (board) word alone,
some folks would wonder in just to
check it out. Not that wigs are a bad
thing, mind you, some people can't
do without them them. I've never
dated anyone with a wig, I wouldn't
be interested. It would freak me out
if it came off at the wrong time �
like breakfast Bissette's used to be
the breakfast spot downtown � 25
cents for a cup of coffee! How things
have changed! A wig shop man
What's with the city traffic engi-
neers cutting street parking in half!
You used to be able to park your car
on either side of the strees that
branch off Fifth Street - that was
when ECU only had 12,000 stu-
dents! Now, you might as well leave
your car in Hoboken and get a bike
because you ain't going to find a
parking space in town after 8 p.m.
Speaking of Fifth Street what the
heck are those round things in front
of the Fine Arts Building across from
the Sig-Ep house of ill-repute?
Those things aren't "art" are they? It
looks like some sort of tiny landing
pads for something. This place isn't
gone to I mean, there hasn't been a
sighting since I lefthas there? The
only sightings I can remember back
when men were men and women
were women were during those late
night panty raids at Umstead, but I
guess things like that don't happen
here anymore. Maybe one of those
late night downtown revelers should
put together a wig raid. Wigs might
look rather bizarre hanging on the
Everyone seeks release
Even though we may he here at
ECU for the summer, and we
may he taking classes, we can
still seek a release.
Well, Monday was the first day of
summer. Ah, cool breezes, warm
sunshine, and blazing hot tempera-
tures. Oh wait, it was cool and
rainy. No bother, summer will
return shortly. If you are reading
this, chances are you decided to
stay around campus for the sum-
mer. If you are staff, you probably
didn't have much of a choice. Yet if
you are a student already, or a
incoming freshman here for orien-
tation and you are reading this
then you are just as crazy as me for
choosing to hang around campus
Personally, I needed to get
caught up on some classes so I
could graduate reasonably close to
on time. Some are here just
because the thought of chilling
with mom and dad for the summer
sent you screaming. Second
Session for Summer begins
Thursday and I find myself saying,
"Why am I still here? Drop the
class before the session begins and
go to the beach Then reality hits
and I realize that I am here to catch
up and that running to the beach
isn't going to put a diploma in my
hand. That is unless I decide to do
the Sally Struthers "TVA'CR
repair" thing that I see on TV. Of
course, seeing how I can't even fig-
ure out my toaster oven, TVVVCR
repair may not be the best choice
for me. Yet I digress.
The point is that even though-
we may be here at ECU for the-
summer, and we may be taking-
classes, we can still seek a release.
Escape to the beach with your sig-
nificant other or just go by yourself.
The waves are therapeutic. Just
watch out for seagulls. Or, if you're
not really a beach lover find a friend
and a tent and head to the moun-
tains. Ride up to Washington, DC
and discover the Nations' Capital
Or ride to Washington, NC. Just
don't stay cooped up inside and
bore yourself to death with "The
Young and the Restless" and reruns
of "Charles of Charge Mavbe
your release is a good book. Maybe
it is watching your favorite movie.
Anyone ever heard of The
Towering Inferno? It's my person-
al favorite. I don't recommend
finding release in a carton of Ben �
Jerry's Chunky Monkey. It may be
good, but it puts on the pounds.
However, I see nothing wrong widj
finding release in a frosty.
Enjoy the summer, and to the
freshman and their parents, wet
come to ECU.
Celebrate those you love
There is nothing that a little
love can't make beautiful.
Last Sunday was Father's Day, and if
you celebrated it, it was a time to spend
with your family. Hallmark has
attempted to take all of the significance
out of simple little holidays like
Valentine's Day and Father's Day and
turn them into over commercialized
spending frenzies, but we must strive
to preserve the true meaning and beau-
ty of these holidays. The little holidays
are the most easily forgotten, but we
can be a little creative and make them
Sometimes, poverty strikes and it
seems as if the holiday must pass with-
out celebration. This is a falsehood
because even in the most dire circum-
stances, one can celebrate his or her
loved ones. College student are notori-
ous for their shortages of funds (occa-
sionally so severe that they choose to
use candles to illuminate their home
instead of conventional electricity), but
also for their creativity. Who else but a
college student would take the time to
figure out that warm beer funneled
directly into the mouth is one of the
quickest ways to get dnink? Maybe
that same college student could apply
some of that infinite supply of creative
juices to create something special for a
loved one to make their day. A card
that is handmade will always bring a
light to your parents' eyes. Remember
kindergarten1 when you made the most
misshapen drawing and said that it was
a family portrait? Your mom stuck that
picture on the fridge so fast the paint
ran, and she smothered you in a hug;
Cheap, but creative, can be great.

Whether cakes, cookies, or manicotlj
arc your specialties, if you say that you
made it for someone you love, they will
swear up and down that it is the best

rave even if it is burnt to a crisp and the

both cases and I know. Just show a lit-

There is nothing that a little love

Faculty members embark on

Faculty members from East Carolina's

alumnus who wanted the faculty to learn
more about a culture very different from

Southern Party plans for succession

and 18 years ago, their forefathers
brought forth upon this continent a
new nation, conceived in secession
and dedicated to the proposition
that states are sovereign and not
beholden to a central government.
Now, the philosophical heirs to
the Confederate States of America
are making another go at it.
Organizers of the Southern
Party have registered with the
Federal Election Commission and
with the secretaries of state in
Florida, Georgia, Texas and
Virginia. By August, the party
hopes to be established in all 11

Since 1992, the Southern Focus
Polls from the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill have asked
whether the South would be bet-
ter off as a separate nation, if that
could be achieved without blood-
shed. Between 8 percent and 16
percent of Southerners have
agreed at any given time, and up
to 9 percent of non-Southerners
have accepted the premise.
Twenty years ago, John
Shelton Reed, the author, histori-
an and sociologist whose depart-
ment oversees the polling, predict-
ed the time was coming when
Southerners would again seek
autonomy. His reasoning: Those
who actually fought the
Civil War were all dead;
America's role in the world was
becoming less clear following
Vietnam, and the South was
"finally ridding itself of the
incubus of white supremacy
"Although I'm pleased to have
my prophecy validated, I'm per-

development Reed says.

Most students watch "Crocodile
Hunter" more for entertainment
than for educational purposes.
Even though Steve is highly
trained and knows what he is
doing, more often than not he
sounds like a complete idiot.
Senior Brandon Lawn's favorite
quote from Steve is, "We're gonna
sneak up on him mate
My personal favorite is when he
is talking to his komodo dragons
(he often talks to the animals) and
in reference to their mating says,
"hey you feisty girls, would you

not be forgotten with all of the records
the he now owns. The left fielder
racked up records for career hits at
ECU( 301),games played (223),at
Combining his career records with
the many single season records which
he holds, he attracted attention from
many other recognized sports associa-
tions. Salargo was named to the second-
team All-American by the National
Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.
Salargo's numerous single season
records including games played(62),at
scored(70) all helped Salargo in his draft
Associate Athletic Director, Henry
VanSant, saw Salargo to be one of the
top Pirates baseball players ever.
"He was a great outfielder who prac-
tically rewrote ECU's baseball book
Salargo has already moved past ECU.
Salargo's mother said that he has already
begun play with a minor league farm
team for the Orioles in Blue-field, West
Salargo said that once he left ECU,
he went to Sarasota, Florida for an
Orioles mini-camp. There his mother
shocked him when she told him that he
won Ail-American honors.
"We were talking on the phone one
night when she told me that I had won
"I was really surprised and honored
with receiving the award
After a few weeks in Florida, he
headed to the Bluefield Orioles for an
advanced rookie ball league, and he is
there currendy. Salargo said that the
change has not been that difficult
thanks to the training he was put
through with Pirates head baseball
coach, Keith LeClair.
"The strategy is a little more fast
paced, every one here is a good ball
player. Some are at another level than
ECU's, but otherwise it is pretty much
the same as what coach Leclair did. It's
not much different Salargo said.
With Salargo gone, it is up to others
to pick up the pace and continue to
excel. Salargo said that many players
should be expected to step up in the
"Players like Jeremy Schumacher
and John Williamson are incredible ball
players who I think will be looked to

It also started the biggest Cup
controversy in years. Several Sabres
said the Game 6 finish will haunt
them and, they said, the National

NEW YORK (Ticker) � Put
away the brooms and postpone
the parade plans.
Allan Houston upstaged Tim
Duncan and shot the New York
Knicks back into the NBA Finals.
Allan Houston matched his
playoff his first playoff career high
to 34 for the points Knicks to a
crucial 89-81 victory over the San
Antonio Spurs, who had their
NBA playoff record 12-game win-
ning streak snapped.
"Allan Houston was incredi-
ble Duncan saidHe played a
great game throughout
"He was a pain in the neck
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.
The Knicks had been dominated
by Duncan in two losses in San
Antonio but found a way to shut
Duncan was stopped by the Knicks
him down the fourth quarter. The
7-foot superstar finished with 20
points and 12 rebounds but was 0-
of-4 in the final period.
"They were a little more
aggressive said Duncan, the first
two games. "They didn't let me
get to the middle as much as I
have before. But I missed some
shots that I usually hit"
Houston came out firing and
never stopped, saddling the Spurs'
guards with early foul trouble and
finishing 10-of-24 from the field.
He scored 13 points in the first
quarter, when New York bolted to
a 14-point lead. He was the
offense in the third period, scoring
12 of his team's 16 points. And
when the Spurs pulled within four
down the stretch, Houston hit a
20-footer for an 83-77 lead with
three minutes remaining and the
Knicks led by at least six there-
after. He tied his post season high

The debate isn't. NHL officials
supervisor Bryan Lewis said Hull's
goal counted because he main-
tained possession of the puck from
the time he played it beyond the
"A puck that rebounds off the
goalie, the goal post, an opposing
player is not deemed to be a
change of possession Lewis said.
"Therefore, Hull would be
deemed to be in control of the
puck, allowed to shoot and score a
goal, even though the one foot
would be in the crease in advance
of the puck
Still, the rules application
seemed to violate the spirit of the
NHL's no-tolerance policy on goal
So many games were delayed
this season for video reviews, and
enough goals were wiped out by
crease infractions, that the NHL's
Board of Governors could vote as
early as this week to relax the rule.
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman
hinted strongly he wants the rule

The rule interpretation creates
yet again the perception that the
NHL often governs itself by the
seat of the pants rather than a set of
rules. Sabres coach Lindy Ruff was-
n't convinced the goal was
reviewed by the video replay judge
and other NHL officials, although
Lewis said it was.
"I really think that if we had
scored a goal like that, it would
have been called back Juneau

Richard Eakin has been chancellor of East
Carolina University since March of 1987.
Prior to ECU, Eakin was employed at
Bowling Green State I Iniversity in Ohio. It
was then that the president at Bowling
Green made him aware of the opening
chancellor position and encouraged him to
apply. Chancellor Eakin is from New
Castle, PA, and attended Geneva College, a
private liberal arts college in Beaver Falls,
PA. From there he went on to graduate
school at Washington State in Pullman, WA,
where he received a masters and doctorate
in mathematics. During college Eakin met
his wife, JoAnn, and they have been married
for 39 years. The Eakin's have two children,
Matthew and Maridy.
Here is a chance to get to know your
chancellor a little more.
The East Carolinian: What do you think
ECU offers incoming freshmen?
Eakin: " I think ECU offers students a
wonderful opportunity for a total college
experience. We have a rich curriculum, as
well as out of class experiences, whether it be
recreational, social, or cultural; all designed to
help us become total human beings. We also
have a sense of community, which I think
attracts a lot of people to ECU

concern for students
A m v W ; n !�: k
Night classes begin at 6:30 p.m. Most run
until 9:30 p.m. and sometimes even
longer. Some students have said that they
are concerned about safely getting to their
car in the dark after class.
According to Shirley Bazemore, Parking
and Traffic Control officer, there are park-
ingl lots that are not open to students until
6:30 p.m. such as the lot next to Rawl, where
many night classes are held.
"These are private parking lots
.Bazemore said. "If they have a registered
vehicle, they can park there
But there are other places to park before
6:30 p.m to avoid being tardy to class.
According to Bazemore, all registered
cars except freshmen can park in the
Brewster staff lot and in the lot behind
Speight after 4 p.m. All other lots open at
5 or 7 p.m. If students' cars are not uni-
versity registered, or are parked there
before these times, then they might
receive a ticket. Bazemore said that tick-
eting goes on from 5:30 a.m. to midnight.
Students who have night classes said
they feel that this puts their safety in jeop-
"Even though the parking lots are pret-
ty well lit, I still don't like it when I have
to walk to my car alone after class said
LaToya Washington, a senior majoring in
Bruce Flye. director of Facilities
Planning, says that there arc no plans to
move parking closer to night-class locations.
"But measures have been taken to
improve lighting and install new emergency
call boxes Flye said.
According to Flye, the new Reade Street
lot will have additional technological safety
"(The Reade Street lot will have the best
lighting as of yet and will lie equipped with
security cameras Flye said.
Richard Brown, vice chancellor for
Administration and Finance, said that safety
is a top priority for ECU, and that the cam-
pus is very safe.
Some students agree and said they do not
fear for their safety on campus after dark.
"I know it's not the best idea, but I walk
around campus alone after dark often
enough, and I've never felt unsafe said

Financial aid helps fund college careers
Students must apply early
to take advantage of loans
Brian I Storrincs
Although the SATs may have gotten you
into ECU, a knowledge of financial aid will
keep you fiscally and physically secure
while you are here.
There are many types of financial aid
available for students at ECU. At the
Financial Aid Office, located in the Old
Cafeteria Complex, you can find the infor-
mation you need to gain access to grants,
loans and part-time employment, also
known as federal work study. Scholarships
and merit-based awards are awarded
through individual departments.
"In order to receive financial help, you
must apply for it and show need. 'The only
aid not based on need are unsubsidized
Stafford Loans said Karen Barbcc,
Associate Director of Financial Aid.
One senior, when asked what he would
have liked to know about financial aid said,
"I wish I had applied for it sooner
The process for obtaining aid is first you
must complete a FAFSA�Free Application
for Federal Student Aid, and list ECU as one

UCAID helps university develop Internet 2
� � � � .� A a. -t. Pantar fnr ' I dlamail iiin�
Qofcw developed as hi$-
stieed successor to internet
AN ISA (illKAIKI
East Carolina University has teamed up
with the University Corporation for
Advanced Internet Development
(UCAID) to help in the development of
UCAID is a collaboration of mainly
universities; 146 hold membership
including N.C. State, the University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Duke
University and Wake Forest University
as well as other universities across the
nation, industries and government
offices. It is an effort to build a high
speed successor to the Internet which
has become too busy and slow in moving
large amounts of data that will benefit
science and research. It is not an
attempt to replace the existing Internet,
but merely allow scientists, medical stu-
dents, etc. to share vast amounts of data,
collaborate easier across broad distances
and run complex equipment by remote.
ECU, who is one of UCAID's newest
members, had to submit an application
to be approved by a review board.
Jeffrey Huskamp, East Carolina's chief
information officer, said joining UCAID
will bring about many advantages.
"It will increase our ban with the
Internet, upgrade the 10 megabytes the
computers have now to 45 or possibly
150 megabytes, and help students by
accessing other universities more quick-
ly Huskamp said.
Students at ECU will be able to
exchange data vials with other universi-
ties like the research library at the
University of California at Berkeley.
This is made possible by NCLIVE, the
UNC systems' libraries. ECU will help
with network research like telemedi-
cine. At the Center for Telemedicine,
part of East Carolina's medical school,
students can access lab analysis and
receive medical information quicker and
There are, however, some restrictions
when using Internet 2. If you want to
send information or a message, you have
to have someone who is a member of
UCAID (like ECU) send it for you. You
can not be just anywhere and retrieve
"Universities who join UCAID to be
a part of Internet 2 want to have better
Internet activities and better Internet
access Huskamp said.
Virtual classroom slated to be ready for fall
Courses will soon
be available online
Everyone with access to the Internet will
now able to complete ECU courses on-
According to Dr. David Watkins, spe-
cial assistant to the VCAA for information
resources, ECU Virtual University will
include virtual classrooms, exams, finan-
cial services, library research and office
visits with professors.
Watkins said that the option should be
up and running next fall, but there is "no
guarantee because they have to tie all the
loose ends He also said that there are
already a lot of class supplements up and
"We're actually hoping to get it ready
before fall semester so that professors will
have enough time to become familiar
with the program and get their informa-
tion up before classes actually start said
Watkins said he did not know exactly
how many classes will be available
through the Virtual University.
"It depends on how many faculty
members want to get involved and how
students respond to it said Watkins.
ECU is planning to-purchase a license
to use a program called Courselnfo from
Blackboard, Inc. Courselnfo will help
standardize on-line courses and "help to
simplify things said Watkins. It will also
provide a template for instructors who feel
less than confident about their computer
Other colleges in the University of
North Carolina System already have some
of these capabilities, including NC State.
"I take an on-line class right in my
dorm room said Cameron Schwartz, NC
State freshman. "It's not any easier than a
regular class that you actually attend, but
it is more convenient
Some non-traditional students are very
excited about the Virtual University.
"I'd love to take classes on-line said
Cindy Targy, a non-traditional student
and mother of two. " I feel out of place in
some of my classes because I'm so much
older than the other students

you've acquired at East Carolina University, you know there's

Department offers aid
to disabled students
Being away from home is a challenge, but
imagine if that challenge was compound-
ed by a disability.
The university offers a great deal of
support and services to help in aiding
these disabled students. Much of the sup-
port and aid comes from the Department
for Disability Support Services.
ECU is home to around 365 disabled
students. According to Liz Shilliday, asso-
ciate director for the Department for
Disability Support Services, "It is not a
requirement for the disabled students to
let the university know they are disabled
when enrolling. Therefore, we only know
the number of students who are disabled
that have come to us for support, and not
the total number
The Department for Disability
Support Services offers services such as
mobility training for the blind or visually
impaired and interpreting services and
Portable Telecommunication Devices for
the deaf. Hearing impaired students are
provided with sign language interpreters
and the visually impaired are provided
with things such as books on tape and
items in larger print.
In addition to Disability Support
Services, the university also offers four
handicap accessible dorms and six handi-
cap accessible dining halls. ECU Transit
has eight handicap accessible busses and
According to Housing Services, the
handicap accessible dorms have special
doors that open with a remote control that

Renovations to many of the dorms and
other campus buildings are underway to
make ECU a more handicap accessible
Beginning last year, ECU started to
renovate dorms and campus buildings by
adding elevators. Jarvis Hall's renovations
will start this year. Once renovations are
complete, Jarvis will be equipped with an
According to Bruce Flye, director of
Facilities Planning, Jones Hall is the next
dorm in line to have an elevator installed.
The Austin Building and Rawl Annex
are two campus buildings that have
recently been under construction. Rawl is
complete, but Austin is still not finished.
ECU Transit has eight of their 18
busses available for the use of disabled
students. They are equipped with lifts for
access to the bus. Although all the busses
are not accessible, they eventually will be.
"The last five busses we have bought
have been accessible said Joey
Weathington, director of ECU Transit
"When we replace the old buses with
new ones, they will also be accessible

Seven locations ensure
large mealtime variety
You're running late and you're hungry,
but you don't have enough time to get to
your favorite fast food restaurant before
your next class. So, take time to stop and
enjoy campus dining.
There are seven dining spots located
conveniently throughout campus which
offer a variety of foods. There are two din-
ing halls�Todd, which is located on
College Hill, and Mendenhall on West
campus. Both are all-you-can-eat dining
halls that serve breakfast, lunch and din-
ner Monday through Friday, and brunch
and dinner on the weekends.
You can choose anything from hot
entrees and salads to made-to-order sand-
wiches and numerous desserts. In addi-
tion to these, the dining halls offer a cere-
al station for those of you who do not feel
like eating dinner for dinner.
If you do not have time to sit down and
eat a meal you can go to one of the other
five dining spots. If you are on Central
campus then you have two options, The
Wright Place and Croatan.
The Croatan is located in the heart of
the academic area of campus, and is an a
la carte cafe open for breakfast and lunch
Monday through Friday.
For breakfast they have biscuit sand-
wiches, bagels and an assortment of pack-
aged pastries and muffins. For lunch they
have sandwiches, fries and qucsadillas,
just to name a few options. The Wright
Place located next to the Student Stores is
the most frequented dining spot It is an
a la carte cafe open for breakfast, lunch,
dinner and late night dining Monday
through Friday, and on Saturday for
breakfast and lunch. "Beverages are our
top selling item at 15 percent of all food
and drinks sold on campus followed close-
ly by pizza said Frank Salamon, Director
of University Dining Services.
If you're on College Hill and want
something quick to eat then go to The

hours seven days a week. Located on

the university sponsor honors pro-
grams, and numerous service organiza-
tions that contribute charitably not
only to the ECU community, but also
to the city of Greenville and surround-
ing areas as well. Other special interest
groups range from those with military
concerns, to those interested in ani-
mism, the belief in the existence of
spirit and soul. There are also music
groups, both large and small, religious
organizations, and the popular social
fraternities, the Greeks.
Whatever your tastes, there is some-
thing for everyone. So take your time,
don't feel pressured into joining any
group, make lots of friends and most of
all enjoy yourself.

If you need furniture for your new
room, don't assume that you have to
bring it with you. A love seat can be pur-
chased for around $20 at local thrift
stores. If you have all the cool stuff
though, you run the risk of being the one
with ten people in your room. A key to
having a great dorm room is creativity.
Sure, you can only do so much with a 12'

what you could accomplish with a little
ingenuity and creativity.

Special Collections wing holds hidden treasures
The Sonic Plaza' serves as a new entrance to Joyner Ubrary, the main research option for many students. This valuable source is divided into four categories, and located on the third floor.
Variety of interests
and resources available
Dan ik I. Kktcimm
For the scholar and historian, one of the
hidden treasures of ECU is the Special
Collections section of Joyner Library.
Here, for those willing to do a bit of dig-
ging, there exists a wide array of materi-
als encompassing a variety of interests
The Special Collections are divided
into four main areas. The first of these is
the Manuscript Collection, which con-
tains letters, diaries, photographs and
numerous other items with great
research potential. The Manuscript
Collection concentrates on four things,
the first being materials from or related
to North Carolina (the North Carolina
Collection on the third floor of Joyner is
a part of Special Collections).
The second part of the Manuscript
Collection is composed of military
papers. According to Donald R. Lennon
of Special Collections, the large number
of naval papers in this collection are,
"the largest repository outside the mili-
tary There is also a considerable
amount of material in this section related
to the U.S. Civil War.
A third area of interest covered by this
collection are materials accumulated by
the tobacco industry and its employees.
These include documents from many
different parts of the world, 'such as
China and Rhodesia, where this industry
has had a presence.
The fourth category in the
Manuscript Collection is missionary
records. These materials come from all
over the world, and include records
returned from Africa, South America and
Material destined for the Manuscript
Collection must first be carefully orga-
nized, itemized and protected against

How many times have you said, "I think
this could be the one Daily? Twice?
Often, we toss around phrases like this
without them ever coming true. But
among the student population at ECU are
many students who have said this and
meant it. Not only do these couples com-
mit their time to their schoolwork, but
also have to dealing with the pressures of
Devotion to a spouse and trying to
make time for school keeps these stu-
dents busy, but overall the pleasures of
being married outweigh the negative
The following three couples all have
unique situations, but face similar chal-
lenges. Kelly Bumpass, a graduate stu-
dent who is finishing his degree, feels that
he made the right decision to get married
while still in school. "I wouldn't trade it
for the world Bumpass said.
According to Bumpass, he appreciates
the security of having his wife Dora at
home when he gets in. And the financial
security that his wife's job provides takes
pressure off of him as he finishes his
He also realizes that there are some
drawbacks to balancing his time.
"Sometimes I can get overwhelmed with
school and work, and then she feels
neglected Bumpass said.

not to do too much
He advises students who are thinking
about getting married and going to school
at the same time to carefully consider the
additional responsibilities that married
life will bring. Not only do you have to
consider the impact of your decisions on
your own life, but on your spouse's as
Unlike single ECU students, he has to
think about the future not just in terms of
school, but of long-range consequences.
"You're living a life outside of school,
at the same time that you are in school
"You have to get your priorities straight
to make it work
Other married students face similar sit-
uations. Junior Jeff Ellis and his wife
Roberta have been married since August
and have a baby girl. They also feel the
pressures of balancing home and school.
"When you love someone and are
committed to them, you can work
through anything Roberta said.
This way, they don't have to worry
about finding time to see one another or
have to experience the apprehension of
being single and dating.
One of the keys to their relationship is
understanding and support. Jeff realizes
the difficulties Roberta has in caring for
the baby, and Roberta encourages him as

larly unique situa-
tion. Don is a gradu-
ate student, while
his wife still lives in
Hawaii, where they
met. They have
been married for
nearly two years, and Don has been going
to school here in Greenville since the fall.

Overall, all three of these couples share
the same feeling. Being married and
going to school is difficult and creates a lot
of extra responsibilities, but if you are
committed to one another and willing to
work hard at both, it is all worthwhile.

Through the exchange program, stu-

agant tuition fees. Studying in another
country costs the same amount as study-

Samantha Dunn, an English major,
received the opportunity to study abroad
at the Manchester University in
England. She was initially introduced to
International Studies when her older sis-
ter participated in the program.
According to Dunn, her experiences
there were very interesting.
The major language differences that
she encountered were found primarily in
the British slang.

the American way of life that Dunn rec-
ognized were in the educational system.
"The classes were very different
Dunn said. "I only went to class on

Although Dunn only attended one
semester, she was able to interact with
students of other cultures as well as the
British. She had three roommates: one
German, one Polish and one African.
When asked if they would opt to
study abroad, the opinions of students
"It would be weird being in a strange
place where I wouldn't know anyone
and all the unfamiliar surroundings
said Cindy Horrell, freshman.
Other students seemed enthused at
the idea of studying in another country.
"I would try it out for a semester just
to get the experience said Vinny
Cardillo, graduate student.
"I think it would be an awesome
experience said Robin Skipper, Junior.

exchange program should contact Linda

The big games in the Pirate's future

and concluding with yet another first
round exit in the CAA tournament,
changes were made. Head coach Joe
Dooley stepped down and former
Drexel coach Bill Herrion stepped in.
Herrion's arrival and possibly a bet-
ter home schedule combined with new
recruits like Travis Holocomb-Faye
could make the 1999-2000 season
more memorable than the last one.
Dunk, the only
senior of last year,
product of R.J.
School, was signed
as a highly regard-
ed point guard,
rebounds and eight
assists per game in
his last year of high school.
While the men went through this
season without much fanfare, the
women had a seasons worth of memo-
ries in one weekend.
The Pirates were the sixth seed
heading into the CAA Women's
Tournament in Richmond. The
Pirates posted upset victories over
George Mason and Richmond en route
to the finals. The Pirates fell to the
heavily favored Old Dominion in a
As spring rolled around, basketball
ended and Pirate baseball and softball
began to take center stage. The
Pirates have led the conference for
most of the season but finished second

coach Amy Graham said.
"Most of these girls have been dancing
for years. They all have some prior back-
ground in dance or cheer teams
Once selected to the team, the girls
then begin to prepare for the National
Cheer Association summer camp. A good
performance at the camp is a key factor
because it is one of the two ways to qual-
ify for the National Cheer Association
championship held every April. Hoping
to improve from a disappointing 13th
place at last year's championship, the
team has already qualified by finishing
with an impressive second place at the
camp this year.
"We are pretty pleased with the show-
ing at the camp Graham said.
"We are right now shooting to make a
top 10 finish at the national finals
A top 10 national finish could possibly

during regular season after losing two
out of three on the road against rival
UNC-Wilmington. During their suc-
cessful games the Pirates beat in-state
foes Wake Forest and UNC-CH in
front of huge crowds at Harrington
field. Not to mention the nation's num-
ber one Miami who had to put up with
the defeat in their own stadium. The
ECU crowd supported the Pirates in
nearby Kinston where the Pirates man-
aged to win the CAA conference title
in a record-breaking final over Old
Dominion. The team had been ranked
in the top 25 for a number of weeks
and secured an NCAA Tournament bid
with the 21-15 victory overODU. The
Louisiana State Regional series will be
remembered by many as unlucky but
still with pride. The Pirates showed
they had the potential to beat every-
body but their luck ran out in the 'Box'
at Baton Rouge.
Breaking the school record by one,
the Lady Pirates won the Big South
Tournament championship title over
Coastal Carolina and clinched the con-
ference's automatic berth in the NCAA
tournament. The team (50-18) took on
the top-seeded host University of
Arizona Wildcats in the first round of
the NCAA Regionals and finished
their successful season.
Being a Pirate fan over the last year
has been fun. The present might not
have had all of the glory and winning
that a fan desires, however most Pirate
teams did not experience heavy loses
and will come back strong this year.
Stronger schedules and more experi-
ence should make the 1999-2000 Pirate
athletics memorable, especially to you,
the newest edition of Pirate fans.
