The unprecedented rescue of the Cape Hatteras
Lighthouse from imminent destruction by powerful
erosion forces provided a perfect backdrop for the
introduction of KCU's newest doctoral program.
"Moving the lighthouse out of harm's way was
perhaps the best policy decision that could have be
made in this regard said Dr. Thomas Feldbush,
vice chancellor for Research and Graduate Studies.

distinct areas of concentration: Social Science,
Ecology, Geoscience and Maritime Studies.
"One of the real strengths of this program is
the fact it brought together biological sciences,
geological sciences, social sciences and maritime
studies Feldbush said. "There is no program
in the country today that combines those four
disciplines; this is the first. It is a totally unique

world that are deliberately designed to have an

responding to the needs of international law of

The state Senate has rejected the
House's revised bond plan after the
House cut the figure from $300 bil-

The money was to benefit North
Carolina universities and communi-
ty colleges, with ECU slated to
receive nearly $79 million dollars
after the House cuts. While ECU
has no role in deciding if the plan
passes, most students would like to
see the plan go through.

The fnct i� our
school systems are
not up 1� Pr or the
state, and unfortu-
nately .this country
is falling behind
many nations of the
world who have
soon the relationship
nnd how it effects
Recently, ECU and the University of North Carolina system found them-
selves making significant cutbacks after the State House of Representatives
announced that costs and expenses had to be trimmed back, creating a $1.2
While $1.2 billion is a large amount of money, it simply is not enough to
cover the many costs and expenses which are created while attempting to
properly run a university.
Many funds desperately needed for the overall maintenance of UNC sys-
tem schools will be granted, however, other important requests must wait.
This seems to be the typical idea of a budget.
Unfortunately, these little things, which may not seem to be the most
important now, are some of the enhancements which are desperately need-
ed in the long run if universities and students are to keep up with the ever-
changing world in which we live.
While State Representatives were generous enough with taxpayer's
money to shell out such a sum it is still not enough. If students and the col-
leges are to compete, then more must be done to aid the educational process
and its advocates.
Currently North Carolina is far from the top of the national rankings in our
students' performance. Many throughout the state are wondering why, and
just as many seem to feel like they have a solution to the problem. I lowever,
few are willing to stand behind their ideas.
The fact is our school systems are not yet up to par, and unfortunately this
country is falling behind many other nations who have seen the relationship
between education and national standing. 'I"he only way to actually catch up
is to pour more money into the education system, not just for colleges and
universities, but for lower grades as well. While it may seem that we have
much greater global problems, if we do not act soon, we as a society will lie
facing dire consequences.
So please, contact both your local and national representatives. Tell them
that it is important to make sure that everyone has a chance at the most com-
prehensive and competitive education that can lie offered. Our future
depends on it.
Your guide to college fashion
The way you dress is as vital
to your future as the diploma
you will one day receive.
Attention freshman males, sum-
mer dudes, and guys with nagging
girlfriends. I have compiled a list of
the ways you need to dress to
achieve success and popularity dur-
ing your college years. The way
you dress is as vital to you r future
as the diploma you will one tlay
receive. The difference is that the
way you dress allows people to
make judgments about you from a
distance�something a diploma
cannot do. So pay attention, this
information could save your life.
To begin, you have to under-
stand the three basic types of men
a.) Those who are in a fraternity
b.) Those who want to look like
they are in a fraternity
c.) Those that don't have clue
The main types of shoes to wear
are sneakers of the running variety.
Make sure the brand of sneakers
comes from a company that has a
minimum of 400 markup on all
their products, such as Nike,
Reebok, Adidas and New Balance.
This shows everyone that you have
money to burn on $200 sneakers
made of hand-polished kangaroo
bladders, and women pick up on
that keen sense of fashion and
monetary privilege. Kcds, Zips,
Pony and Champion are all out; you
will never make it with those.
Make sure to have the laces tied
loosely and never run in them�
this will only show that you have
physical motivation and that you
are wasting valuable drinking time
with such silly concepts like health
Socks are fairly easy to learn, as
long as you are a sucker for detail
like me. Now the socks must be
low cut, just above the sneaker or
below the ankle. Knee-high and
calf-length socks will only get you a
beating at upper class establish-
ments such as the Tres' ju Elbo
Roome and the very trendy Tu
Madre es Pantana Bob's. Lastly,
make sure the name of the sneaker
company making the socks docs
not match the brand of sneakers
you are wearing.
During the hot summer months,
shorts are a necessity. Make sure
the shorts are tan khakis that stop
just above the knee. The shorts
need to be a bit baggy. This will not
only make you look thinner, it will
also provide ample room to sneak
graphing calculators into your
chemistry and math exams.
(Remember the bagginess for foot-
ball season; if the shorts are baggy
enough you can sneak in a keg.)
The shorts should be held up by a
belt, preferably black or dark brown
eel skin. But if you plan to transfer to
NC State in the future, a rope or
extension cord will do nicely.
T-shirts are for the trendy college
student, and polo-type shirts can
also be worn if your T-shirts are
dirty. Now the T-shirts must be
loud (but not as loud as your girl-
friend though), and have incoher-
ent phrases written on them about
being tough, drinking, sex, fraterni-
ty life or surfing. If a polo shirt is in
order, make sure everyone can
clearly see the Ralph Lauren, Duck
Head, Tommy Hilfiger, Sears, et
cetera. If you cannot afford these
name brands, you are inferior and
should just drop out of school.
The last piece of clothing to com-
plete the college look is the hat. A
hat provides many valuable func-
tions. A hat will keep your friends
from seeing that you are paying
attention during class, which could
make your social standing take a
dive if your grades go up. A hat will
also keep professors from seeing
you cheat, help disguise your hang-
over and make your black eye less
The hat must be well worn and
dirty and have a logo of a school
other than the one you go to. Never
show show school pride, no matter
what That is a real no-no. Use
Duke, UNC, Notre Dame, and
other big name schools. Make the
rim of the hat slopes about 25
degrees and has a crease that looks
as if it was caught in a car door.
You are now on your way to
Coolsville, so go and spend trade
deficit amounts of cash on these
goods and practice your new look.
You will feel better, and hey. Visa
will hang a plaque in the chair room
with your name on it.
I will write later about acces-
sories: jewelry, tattoos, underwear.
Ladies, my tips for you will come
next week; be sure to have a pen
and paper ready.

Animals have rights too
One does not have to Ik a vege-
tarian to support animal rights.
I have always loved animals,
especially dogs. Animals can be our
pets and our friends. I have found
that animals have a therapeutic and
calming quality. Often, a dog or cat
is cheaper than a shrink. I have
always thought that it is a shame
that many apartment complexes in
the area don't allow pets. I think
that it is a nice thing to have your
faithful dog, cat or other animal anx-
iously awaiting your arrival.
Sadly, many people do not treat
their animals very fairly or kindly.
Often we see dogs and eats running
on the side of the road, left to their
own devices, many of which have
been abused or neglected by their
owners. Some animals are left out-
side in the intense heat of summer
or the bitter cold of winter without
proper shelter or any shelter at all.
My grandparents own a dog that
they discovered while it was using
an old chair as its shelter. They
found it in the middle of February
while it was still freezing outside.
The dog was cold and malnour-
ished. This dog was not aban-
doned; someone did own it. My
grandparents asked if they could
have the dog, and fortunately the
owner said yes. Now the dog is
treated very well. It has a nice
warm home with loving owners and
I swear that the dog gets more
Christmas presents than I do.
I am not the only person who
feels that animal cruelty is wrong.
Several years ago at ECU, there was
an organization called SETA, which
stands for Students for the Ethical
Treatment of Animals. The organi-
zation has had somewhat of a rocky
past here at the university, and it
has not been active for a few years.
The organization is still here on
campus and can be reactivated.
The organization has a small bud-
get, a faculty advisor, and a purpose.
SETA now needs student support.
Any student of ECU can join. Dr.
Kenneth Wilburn, a history profes-
sor here at ECU and faculty advisor
for SETA encourages all students to
join. SETA is not out to have its
members raid fur farms or personal-
ly hartxr cows in their homes to
avoid sending them to slaughter.
The organization is about protect-
ing animals and an animal's right to
One does not have to be a vege-
tarian to support animal rights.
Personally, I am not a vegetarian. I
do, however, believe that all of God's
creatures should be treated fairly and
animals are no exception. I think all
animals, whether they be dogs, cats,
chickens, cows, or any other animal
are entitled to a good home, food to
cat water to drink and someone to
care for them. Everyday animals are
abused and neglected. It happens
here in Pitt County, and it happens
Pet overpopulation is a problem
as well. Not to sound like Bob
Barker, but having your pet spayed
or neutered is a good idea. Puppies
are cute, but hard to take care of and
even harder to find good homes for
all the time. Many animals you see
on the side of the road are strays.
This is a real shame because some-
one out there who could take good
care of it would probably love to
have that animal as a pet
SETA is not just about being
anti-fur or anti-meat As in my case,
one can be pro-animal while not
being a vegetarian. In my opinion
SETA is about respecting animals.
It's about trying to ensure that all
animals are treated fairly, with
kindness, dignity, and love.
If you are interested in SETA or
would like to know more about it
contact Dr. Kenneth Wilbum at
Mini-skaters take over college campus
eastern North Carolina,
there are not as many skate
parts as in other parts of the
How many of you have been
peacefully going about your busi-
ness, strolling through campus,
only to be almost run over by a
mini-skater? No, this is not a new
skating team made up of special lit-
tle people; I am talking about the
middle school and elementary
school kids who come over here
and use the steps as jumps. I must
admit, they have given me more
than my fair share of giggles when I
watched them take unfortunate
spills while trying desperately hard
to be cool. Do these kids ever quit?
I have a younger brother myself,
so I can kind of understand the
obsession with finding a good place
to skate. In eastern North Carolina,
there are not as many skate parks as
in other parts of the country. Mini-
skaters must find a place to hone
their skills, and there aren't many
places that are more appealing to
them than a college campus that is
composed of bricks and cement.
True, the bumps and bruises have
got to be worse than they would

you can't possibly trick-skate on a

I have to admire the persever-
ance of the mini-skaters. Through
bruises, broken bones, scratches,
threats from police officers and
parental scolding, these kids don't
stop. They have a goal, and they
will face any obstacle in the way to
accomplish it. (Okay, okay, I am
overdramatizing this a little bit, but
stay with me.) I wish that there
were more kids who wanted to get
out and do something. Obesity in
children would not be such a prob-
lem if every child skated. Boredom
would not be a constant whine if all
children found something to do
that interested them that was
cheap and that they could do them-
selves. Though the mini-skaters
are an inconvenience, they are
motivated and active. If you see
another one rushing by you on
