Changes predicted for
University in next millennium
Facilities to be
expanded over next ten years
As we prepare to enter a new millennium,
ECU is the second-fastest growing school in
North Carolina. Looking ahead over the next
ten years, ECU is striving to continue that
"I believe we will have something
between 25 and 27 thousand students said
Dr. Richard Eakin, Chancellor of ECU.
"Currently, we have roughly 18 thousand stu-
dents. To have that happen in ten years will
be remarkable, not just that it occurs, but also
in the challenges that it will impose on being
able to accommodate that many students
In order to meet the needs of the growing
population in the next decade, ECU will be
adding new programs as well as reconfiguring
many of its degree programs. Some of the
new programs that are being considered for
the future include a school of pharmacy, a
school of computer science and communi-
cation and new programs in engineering
Not only will the course offerings
develop, but the way they are
being taught will change as well.
Computers will play a major
role in this change. ECU
has already teamed up
with Real Education,
Inc. of Denver, Co. to
offer classes via the
with the fall 1999
semester, 20 courses
will be available on-
I line. ECU is the first
public university in
North Carolina to
work together with
Real Education, Inc.
"We are and will
continue to be a
leader in using tech-
nology for educa-
tion Eakin said. "We will be offering edu-
cation in ways we literally can not imagine
now. It is not at all unreasonable to believe
that ten years from now we will have fifteen
to twenty percent of our students taking
classes over the computer
The rapid development in technology
will not replace the classroom setting.
"There will also be a place for traditional
18 to 20 year-old student who needs to leave
home and whose parents need them to leave
home said James Lanier, Vice Chancellor
for Institutional Advancement. "They
understand that they could stay home and
get a lot of courses, but they need the envi-
ronment and experience of a campus loca-
With growth comes the need for new
facilities. Joyner Library and the Student
Recreation Center are the most recent addi-
tions to ECU's campus. In the coming
years, it will see the completion of a three
year $7 million Science and Technology
Center, which will break ground this fall. A
new dining facility, located off Cotanche
Street, will begin construction
later this year.
"We are currently in conversation with a
number of Federal agencies that will pro-
vide ECU with the opportunity to lease the
former Voice of America site said Eakin.
"That will provide us with much needed
room for growth and development
"I think if we were sitting here ten years
from now, we would also be celebrating the
fact that we have a new baseball stadium to
go with all our other wonderful facilities that
have changed the face of ECU Athletics.
"This fall we will break ground on a new
strength and conditioning center. The next
logical thing to be thinking about is a base-
ball stadium. Another logical thing for us to
think about is new track facilities. I think
ten years from now, both of those will be
"You will see on-campus housing contin-
ue to be a marketable component said Dr.
Spier, the Dean of Students. Weai�ergoing
to be out front on living in the residence hall
as a pretty good place to be. We will contin-
ually upgrade buildings.
"When Jarvis opens, people are going to
be lined up to get in. It's going to be a
showpiece, but it is still going to be the old-
est residence hall we have. From an exter-
nal look, its going to be like it was in 1922,
but internally its going to be like it should in
All of this growth does not come cheap.
Today, ECU has nearly $40 million in assets.
This shows significant growth over the $1
million just fifteen years ago.
"Within the next ten years I'd like for it
to be well over $100 million Lanier said.
"Our giving percent from alumni is about 15
percent, which is about average for schools
like ours. In the next ten years, I'd like to
move that into the 20 percent range. We will
do a major fundraising campaign associated
with our 100th anniversary which will prob-
ably run from 2002 to our anniversary in

Wi?t rnMF Rapk!
Welcome to East Carolina University. You have my best wish-
es for meaningful and enriching experiences at ECU this year.
This promises to be a very exciting year on campus. We are
actively planning many new programs in our academic areas.
The construction and renovation of many facilities which is cur-
rently underway may be inconvenient to you at present, but the
results will be wonderful. Our athletic complex has a new look
and our new scoreboard is being installed. In short, activity
abounds as we prepare for the new century.
If you are new to our campus, I join my colleagues in wel-
coming you. We have a special place in our hearts for you and
hope that you will soon consider the University your home.
Indeed, we strive to create and maintain an academic com-
munity small enough for you to feel at home but large enough
to provide you with the opportunities you need to prepare for
the years ahead.
Work hard, enjoy yourself, and fill the year with both good
memories and accomplishments that will cause you to hold
ECU in your hearts.
Very best wishes,
Richard R. Eakin
Campus under construction
Walking around campus, it is diffi-
cult not to notice the bright orange
fencing that seems to be every-
where. Chain-link fence wraps
around much of the Fifth Street
side of the mall. Sounds usually
associated with school are now
replaced with the sounds of ham-
mers, machinery, and the "beep,
beep, beep" of tractors. All of this
construction may be annoying now,
but the end result will be well
Jarvis Residence Hall is being
completely remodeled. Built in
1909, Jarvis is the oldest building on
campus that is still used for its orig-
inal purpose. To keep up with
modern society, new walls, win-
dows and doors must be added.
Also new elevators and a heating
and cooling system were necessary.

looking now, but it'll

The Jenkins Fine Art Center,
right next to Jarvis, is having some
major work done as well. The
gallery is being remodeled to make
it appear more professional, and the

studio classrooms are also being

As a result of theses surveys,
Student Health is now providing
more common items in the phar-
macy. Condoms, both male and
female, are readily available at
affordable prices to students. The
pharmacy is also offering Tylenol
cold medicine and some other
alternative over the counter cold,
fever and blister medicine. Also,
new supplies in the pharmacy
include various brands of birth
control pills and new infection
'The Student Health Center
is also looking into some other
changes in the future as a result of
the student feedback from the
surveys said Kay Y. Wilkerson,
director of the Student Health
Such improvements include an
after-hours clinic and the ability to
use prescription cards at the

It is also hoped that in the future,
dental and dermatologist services
can be offered.

HARRISON CITY, Pa. (AP) -Bob
and Linda Galet just wanted to do
a little work on their basement.
They didn't think they would find
a body down there.
The couple, who has lived in a
Pcnn Township home for 13 years,
was digging up the dirt floor of the
basement Monday when Linda
Galet's shovel struck something
hard. At first, they thought it was
no more than a box.
Moving the dirt and clay by
hand, they saw something they
couldn't have prepared themselves
for the tips of a pair of boots.
"At that point, I knew it was out
of our hands and knew to get some-
body with some kind of experience
looking at it said Bob Galet.
Officials unearthed a skeleton,
lying on its left side, buried in its
boots, covered with one to two feet
of clay. The knees were bent
slightly upward, with the toes of
the boots pointing straight up.
Now, law enforcement officials
just have to figure out whose body
it was buried in the Galet's base-
ment - and why.
On Tuesday, Westmoreland
County officials removed the
skeletal remains and called in
Dennis C. Oirkmaat, a professor of
anthropology at Mercyhurst
College in Erie, to determine the
weight, gender, race and height of
the deceased person.
A cause of death needs to be
determined as well. County Chief

hurricane season predicted
Government scientists are predict-
ing more hurricanes this season
than usual, with three or more
intense Atlantic storms possible.
Last year's hurricane season pro-
duced 14 tropical storms, including
three major hurricanes. In a typical
season, the United States experi-
ences five to six hurricanes, two of
which are severe and an average of
1.5 storms make landfall.
"Just because we haven't seen a
hurricane yet this year, don't get
fooled into thinking that this will be
a light season Gerald Bell, a
research meteorologist at National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Prediction Center, said Tuesday.
Hurricane season officially runs
from June 1 to Nov. 50, but tropical
storms don't really rev up until mid-
August. The peak period runs from
mid-August to mid-October.
The season is expected to be
busy due to atmospheric conditions
globally that contribute to hurri-
canes, said CPC meteorologist
Vernon Kousky. Among those con-
ditions are a low wind shear across
the tropical Atlantic and below-
average air pressure across the trop-
ical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean

ROME, N.Y. (AP) - Mountains of

'99 concert have turned into a gold
mine for a local Little League
With temperatures reaching into
the 90s during the three-day con-
cert, the thirsty crowd of more than
225,000 people left behind lots of
beer and soda cans and bottles.
Concert organizers have donated
the recyclables to Rome American
Little Leaguers. "We had gone out
and asked if there was a possibility
that we could pick up the cans and
bottles said fundraiser chair-
woman Barbara DeBlasiis. "They
decided to not only give us the cans
and bottles they already had, but to
have people continue to pick them
up for us
So far the group has raised near-
ly $2,000. The money will help pay
for a new Little League field.
Promoters also donated a hot water

Don't get me wrong, I was once
just as lost as the poor freshman, and
I remember the feeling of helpless-
ness as I prayed that my professor
would be merciful on attendance that
first day. I couldn't understand how
all the other people on campus but
me knew what GC and SRC stood
for. I am not saying that I never get
lost (I couldn't find my way out of a
wet paper bag with a pocketknife and
a flashlight), but at least I know my
abbreviations and the way to get
around campus. I felt so bad my
sophomore year because I knew
exactly what they were going
through, but I couldn't help them.
They just kept staring at their maps
and walking in aimless circles.
If you happen to see a lost fresh-
man this year, do not bump into them
as they are buried deep in their cam-
pus map. They are doing their best,
and they are trying to get around. If
you have a couple of minutes to spare
before classes begin, maybe you
could go out of your way and actually

hope that those who don't many will at
least find a meaningful relationship
with someone special. As a man
engaged to a wonderful woman, I know
what it is like to be uncertain about mar-
riage and the future.
No doubt in the future we will meet
new people. Some will be business
associates. Some of these people will
become great friends that we will form
lifelong bonds with. Some of these
people are here at ECU right now.
Some may be sitting next to you in your
classes and will become your greatest
friends here. For those living in the
dorms, die people you live with or near
may become your best friends. When I
came here as a freshman in 19, I met
people then who are some of my best
friends now. This can and will happen
to most here.
For many freshman reading this paper,
this is die first time diat you are not liv-
ing at home. I am not trying to sound
condescending at all. I know you feel
uneasy, and dial the future is uncertain.
You may not know your way around
campus or Greenville yet Some of you
may be looking for a church or campus
group to provide peace and comfort.
Some of you may be looking for that fra-
ternity or sorority. Maybe you're looking
for that new best friend. Others may be
looking for the good dining hall on cam-
pus. (Oops, thereVnot one.) Whatever
you are looking for chances are you can
find it here. It is just that immediate
future, getting started, that is scary.
Personally I still get butterflies in my
stomach at the beginning of each
semester. Buying books, meeting new
professors and meeting new friends in
my classes is sometimes a little over-
whelming. All of these things involve
the fuwre. For those new here, don't
worry. By Fall Break you will have mas-
tered your way around campus, met
many new friends and found the lesser
of the evils in regard to the dining halls.
The future. Yikes! It can be frightening.
Hell, it is frightening. But there is shel-
ter for the storm. Take each day a day at
at time. Turn to your source of strength,
whether it be God, friends, family or
yourself. Don't worry about your future
here at ECU, it will take care of itself,
along with a little hard work from you.
Enjoy your immediate future here at
ECU, and look forward to die future in
store for you beyond school. I want
everyone to have a great year. Take a
deep breath and don't worry, we'll get
through it together. ,
MY FIRST ACT-&-S�mR�.LS TO Rt
With the millennium fast approaching ECU is forced to look at the future of
its campus. According to Chancellor Eakin, ECU is expected to have between
25 and 27 thousand students within the next ten years. Such an increase of stu-
dents would certainly be beneficial to the university as a whole, and it would
give the university the recognition and credibility it deserves. However, TEC
wonders what the university will do to keep up with the changing student pop-
ulation. For instance, there are not enough dorm rooms currently to house the
students who will be living on campus in the fall. While Jarvis Residence Hall
is slated for completion by the end of the semester, it will only yield 160 spaces
for students wanting to live on campus. That will still force students to find off-
campus housing unless the university makes plans for more residence halls or
additional student housing Also, with parking a constant problem around cam-
pus, where will all of these new students park? It has been rumored that ECU
will turn into a walking campus; no cars allowed on campus, at all. Anywhere.
Anything might be better than the parking situation as it stands right now.
Eakin does hope to have a new baseball facility in place along with a new track
facility within the next ten years. Both of those things would help elevate the
ECU athletic program to the next plateau. But without capacity for the new stu-
dents, who will be close enough to campus to come watch these events? An
increase in the number of students will be beneficial to everyone at the univer-
sity. We just hope the university changes with the student population and
makes the campus comfortable for everyone.
An Alphabetical Welcome to Freshmen
A is for Alcohol, how fun it is to
drink; the next day is rough, as you
yak in the sink. All your friends do it
and so should you. Get used to
downtown, and the local jail, too. In
high school you parried, drank and
hung out with the sweeties; get ready
man - at ECU we pour Jim Beam in
B is for Bachelor, the only way to
be in college, you don't need a nag-
ging girlfriend as you try to gain
knowledge. Living with three dudes,
partying every night; your bathroom's
nasty, in the kitchen the roaches
fight. Playing poker, smoking cigars,
making pyramids with beer cans; sure
beats being dragged to Target to shop
for pillow shams.
C is the grade for which you
should strive, A's are for nerds with no
social lives. B's show you're average;
who needs such a crutch, C's are just
right, not too little, not too much. D's
and F's will make you retake the
class, and C's will keep the dean from
tossing you on your ass.
D is for Disorderly conduct, down-
town 3:00 a.m - you'll soon see puking
dmnks screaming "Officer, she started
it, not me Be nice to the bouncers
and don't give them any lip, or they
will turn you upside down and ride you
like a pogo stick. Ieave when you're
told to, keep a smiley face; if not you
get a shiner and lungs full of mace.
E is for Energy, of which you will
have none. Between drinking dnigs
and partying, 8:00 a.m. classes are not
fun. You will always be sleepy, tired
and cranky; professors know this so
they keep pop quizzes handy. So
down go your grades, your morale and
your zest, you're not the only one, so
sleep in like the rest.
F is for Freedom, in college you do as
you please; no more sneaking out your
window at a quarter to three. No more
parents yelling, driving you insane. Just
remember: they're the ones paying for
diis educational gravy train.
G is for Girls, at ECU they look
beautiful, but they're here to team,
that's why they came to school. But
young college girls are fickle; they are
particular. You need a tat wallet and
say nice things to her. Girls want a nice
guy, or so they say, but' they always
date the jerk in the Porsche Cabriolet.
II is for Hangover, your head's
gonna explode, I don't feel sorry, you
chose the 18-credit course load. Just
one more shot, then you've got to
study. It's a shame you chose an alco-
holic as a frisbee golf buddy.
I is for Initiation, pledging the Iraq
are you really sure you wanna go
through all that? Fraternities are
great, a heck of a lot of fun. Show you
can drink like an Irish poet and you're
sure to get in one. Hazing can be
rough, so don't let your guard be poor;
prepare to be stapled naked, upside-
down on a sorority's front door.
J is for Judgment, of which you
will have none. You chose to study in
the library instead of drinking and
having fun. You chose to study for the
test - on the night before, then you
cry foul at the teacher for your
abysmal score. "It's unfair you
scream, "That teacher is a schmuck
Try reading the right chapter next
time, stupid, you'll have better luck.
K is for Kayaking done through
the Rec Center. You can pay a big fee
to go through the rapids like a
blender. The Rec Center is great, lots
of tilings to do, from playing racquet-
ball to jumping in step aerobics like a
psychotic kangaroo.What better way
to blow off steam from failing your
test, by dunking on your homies and
showing off to the rest.
I. is for Library, filled with knowl-
edge, prose and information, only you
choose to avoid such boring irritation.
You'll ignore all the science and liter-
ature greats, over your head will be
Shelley, Poe and Yeats. But English
literature is fun; it beats laying bricks,
and more fun to hang in coffee shops
with all the hippiebeatnik chicks.
M is for Mooning and other fun to
have in cars, not much else to do after
leaving the bars. College pranks are
the very staple of a good time; crazy-
gluing dorm rooms shut - simply
divine. Here's one to do to your
most hated fellow: fill his toilet tank
with cherry red Jell-O.
N is for Nietzsche, and all the
philosopher saps, if you ever take this
course, get ready for long naps.
Existentialism and logic at its best.
These teachers are nuts, and you
need your rest
O is for Offal, the sludge that
Aramark serves proudly. Overpriced
and tasteless, not much of a choice,
though, sadly, meatballs that are more
ball than meat. Soup like slime; I'm
convinced that Aramark is involved in
organized crime. Only gangsters
would torture us with such inedible
disease. Drop your declining balance
card�let's go to Wendy's!
P is for Pirates, our great football
team, support 'em well, it's gonna be a
good year, many tickets will sell. New
stadium seating, 8,000 more seats to
cheer, better conference games com-
ing every year. You'll leam to totally
hate NC: State, and how to sneak a
pint of Jack Daniels past the gate.
Q is for Questiops, of which Vou
will ask your professors none, sitting
in the back sleeping until class is
done. What a waste of time are these
early morning lectures; long-winded
professors and their ridiculous conjec-
tures. Just to get a diploma, a useless
proof of your acquired knowledge. I
know it's stupid, but hey, so is college.
R is for Road trips; all college kids
should explore. Take a few friends
and go visit lands of yore. (Only two
words for Greenville: snooze and
snore.) See all the sights and small
towns to discover; most of the ban in
New Bern have no cover. It beats sit-
ting all weekend in the dorms on the
hill. You really got to get out of this
crappy town of Greenville.
S is for Sex, that most notorious sin.
College is where most people begin.
DonY fear losing your sacred virginity;
your not a fool. Most of the guys are
lying they didn't get any in high school.
T is for Truant, to class you will
always be late. You stumble into class
with a half-asleep gait. Some anal
retentive teachers actually take role.
It makes them feel powerful, like
they're in control. Their large egos
you must leam to deflate. Get you
friends to steal his her car - tomorrow
prof will be late.
U is for Uproar, that great all-
American college bash. Beer flowing
like water, 200 people; your house is
trashed. Musk playing at mach three,
people passed out on the lawn; (he
toilet's broken, there's a keg in the
tub, all your food's gone. One can't
hold his liquor; he rulphed all over (he
floor. That's the least of your worries:
the cops just kicked in your door.
V is for Vomit, that vegetable stew-
looking spew. This verse is really a
continuation of U. The party's nor
over until the last person's left. Six
empty kegs to the store you must heft.
But your party's a success; you're the
talk of the school, $600 in damages. It's
worth it, the chicks think you're cool.
W is for Washing clothes, a thor-
oughgoing bore. How you will hate
this never ending chore. Laundromat
owners gouge us students like loan
sharks: expensive-ass washers, bro-
ken dryers shooting sparks. They're
all over this city, even in the dorms
are these places. Let's get back at
these crooks: into the dryers throw a
couple of pizza slices.
X is for Xenophobe, in college you
cannot be. Many people go here, lots of
nationalities. College is a big melting
pot; where many ideas reside. Be
open-minded, see everyone's side.
DonY be racist, biased or think that guy
is queer. He may become a great col-
lege friend, smile and hand him a beer.
Y is for year, as in four more to go,
Have fun, party, and study, take it slow.
Don Y be so serious, see the forest for the
trees, Grades are not everything; college
is really a breeze. Your real education
will happen here. But remember, the
real world is what you must fear, (that
and having no money for beer!)
Z is for Z end of this rhyming poet-
ry; this awful literary atrocity. This was
fun to write, I must admit, I hope you
got a smile out of it Much of this was
truth, but most was idiocy. I hope you
have fun at East Carolina University

Party of the Century
pyramids for charity
The "Party of the Century" has been
in the works for the past twenty years. For
anyone looking for a way to bring the New
Year's in with a bang, this is it.
Three hours before the beginning of
the new millennium, the black tie charity
event begins. It is called the World
Millennium Charity Ball, and it is held
beneath the shadow of the Pyramids. The
guests will ride on camels across the
desert dunes to a bluff that overlooks all
three of the great Pyramids. The
Egyptian government is planning a little
something special for all who attend, an
event similar to the ball drop in New York
City. The Great Pyramid of Cheops is
missing its peak, and the Ministry of
Culture is going to recap it in gold and
reveal it at the stroke of midnight.
At dawn, there will be a sunrise
champagne breakfast and hot air bal
loon rides across the desert.
This trip is not just a one
day affair; it is intended to be a five-day,
four-night affair. Events like open-air
street festivals in Ramadan, excursions to
the Pyramids and the Egyptian Museum
and a trip to El Fishawi's coffee house,
which has been serving coffee for the last
200 years, are all part of this first class
vacation. If one had the money and want-
ed to go all out, he or she could even sail
at sunset on a Felouka, an ancient
Egyptian broadsail boat.
Some think that all of this advanced
planning and extravagance in a time of cri-
sis is wasteful. "The Millennium Society
is planning for a New Year's Eve that is a
little way off. With global crises and a
growing hole in the ozone layer threaten-
ing civilization as we know it, this, then, is
a society for the consummate optimist
said "The Washington Post" on
December 31, 1986.
If that is the case, there are many
with no lack of spending money in this
world. The reservations have been sell-
ing since the society began planning for
the big event several years ago, and
these reservations are almost gone.
The tickets sell for between $3000
and $1999 per person. The
amount of lush and lavish treat-
ment that is desired deter-
mines the price. For a mil-
lennium celebration that will
never be forgotten, look into
the celebration in Egypt. It
promises to be a unique and

Mission Impossible: Jubilee 2000
pay off debts
According to Hebrew and
Christian customs, the year 2000 is
meant to be a year of Jubilee. The
Jubilee tradition dates back to the
Old Testament in the Bible. Jubilee
was meant to be celebrated every 50
years, and it was a time of happiness
because it was the year of universal
pardon. Every household should be
reunited, all land should be returned
to the original family that owned it,
the Hebrew slaves should be set free
and all debts should be forgiven.
"And you shall consecrate the
fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty
throughout the land to all its inhabi-
tants. It shall be a Jubilee for you,
and each of you shall return to his
possession, and each of you shall
return to his family Leviticus 25:10.
Throughout the centuries, the
Church has celebrated Jubilee with
pilgrimages and prayers. In 1450,
there was a terrible accident among
the crowds of pil-
grims, and nearly

human development a possibility
when so much of Africa's wealth is
channeled into debt servicing?"
Jubilee 2000 is an attempt by
common people to liberate peoples
that are too deep in debt to live in
freedom and good health. They
believe that the beginning of the
millennium should be a true year of
Jubilee, and all those whose debt
cannot be paid any other way should
receive assistance from those who
can give it.

What is college about anyway?
Is it just about hitting the books
and taking exams? No. I believe
that when people go away to col-
lege they expect to take with them
experiences - academic as well as
social. These will have an impact
on them forever in many cases.
They may even help them in
future experiences when it comes
to getting a job or just interacting
with people. As we head into the
millennium, the new and improved
Student Union realizes what a stu-
dent at ECU expects and thrives
for. We combine entertainment
with education and great social
experiences. We strive for diversi-
ty, teamwork, organization, creativ-
ity and enthusiasm in our organiza-
tion, and we are working towards a
more professional and well-known
Every student at ECU is part of
the Student Union, but not every-
one is a member. In order to be a
member, one needs to get involved
and contribute to the organization.
The Student Union is an organiza-
tion that surpasses many due to the
fact that any student who wishes
may actually have a say in what
types of programs are brought to
ECU. This is a student-run organi-
zation that demands a lot from its
members. After all, with the
money that is put into the hands of
the students in order to program
their events, one must be very
responsible and have the drive and
determination to serve the student
body well as a whole. As an organi-
zation on campus, we are by far one
of the largest and most exciting that
you can participate in. Accepting
the challenge of becoming a
Student Union member is the most
significant way for a student to have
a lasting impact on this university. I
simply cannot find any fault in trav-
eling, networking, meeting new
people, gaining leadership skills
and, most importantly, being a part
of something as defining as the

NASA trainer turned professor
Few people have seen or done as
much in their lifetime as Dr. James
Batten. He served in the Navy
before becoming a chemistry pro-
fessor at UNC Wilmington. He
then took a position as a staff mem-
ber at the Morehead planetarium in
Chapel Hill. In 1957 when the
space program began to take off,
NASA began to visit planetariums
across the country to decide which
would be the best to train the new

the proposal to NASA and ask
them to let us train the astronauts at

said. "When they looked over the
planetarium at Chapel Hill and the

The contract to teach the astro-
nauts was given to Morehead. Dr.
Batten was chosen to train astro-
nauts in the first space program.
"The program was the Mercury
program, and there were seven
selected astronauts and one alter-
nate said Batten. These eight
men were divided into three teams.
They became Mercury, Gemini
and Apollo, and Batten trained all

One of Batten's ideas was to
establish highways in the heavens
using star constellations as road
signs. This was important so that
the astronauts could find their way
around once they were in orbit.
"We decided that it would be
better to travel between 30 degrees
North latitude and 30 South lati-
tude so as they traveled around the
earth, they would be able to see the
poles and everything else said
Batten. "So we established high-

One outgrowth of the space pro-
gram was the need for better com-
munication. NASA put three satel-

These satellites took information
from one part of the world and
transmitted it to another.

Dr. Batten came to ECU as a
doctor of research in I960, and he

i The previous name for this sport
fcs frisbee golf. This is probably
tbecause in the very beginning,
tWham-o's frisbees were the only
thing that you could throw hard and
fast without killing the neighbor's
Jcat. Now, there are dozens of "fly-
ting disk" makers. Here in our fair
city, there are several places you
can find "official" disks, or you can
use those floppy ones you have in
the trunk of your car. However, to
enter a tournament or to play by the
"rules you will need a new one
which will only set you back about
seven to ten bucks. The good news
is that you don't have a greens fee
and you don't need a cart.
It's hard to believe that the
Frisbee was invented 25 years ago
The modem-day identified flying
object was invented and patented
by a gentleman by the name of Ed
Headrick. The patent was later sold
to Wham-o, those wonderful peo-
ple who produced the hula-hoop.
Today, are millions of Frisbees out
there and dozens of look-alikes.
Years after throwing Frisbees at
trees, trash cans, people, squirrels
and telephone poles, formal disk
golf came about. The simple game
of "throw the disk at a target" has
evolved pretty much the same way
as life itself. Now, there is skill, the-
ory, practice, frustration, cursing
and a bit of luck involved. The
modern-day version began, many
believe, in 1975 in Pasadena
California. Nevertheless, the
Professional Disc Golf Association
was formed in the same year.
Today, "there are almost 800 Disc
Golf Courses in the United States
with over 2,000,000 players said
Mr. Headrick on his web page.
Believe it or not, the Worlds
Championship is held in Charlotte,
NC with a purse of over$51,000-so

Lewis Hoffmann, who helped
design the course back in 1986,
helps to put on tournaments each
Thursday evening and has disks for
sale. His ECU web page gives you
directions, a course map and a hint
of the variation of the holes. "(It's)
mostly a tight, wooded course,
making excellent use of available
space. Some open holes and two
nice boomers said Hoffman. The
best part is that you can play on the
ECU 18 hole course for free. "I'd
suggest new players get to the
course before noon said Lewis.

"The Haunting newly released
this summer, was a festival of lights
and computer graphics, but some
of the horror of the original picture
In the first movie version of
"The Haunting most of the
scares in the movie were caused by
the imagination. Your mind led
you around corners that weren't
meant to be explored and into
shadows that were created by the
lurking dead. You were the one
who determined how horrific the
monsters were and how many chil-
dren died. In the recent version of
the movie, nothing was left to the
imagination; computer graphics
filled in any questions that the
viewers might have. It was the dif-
ference between playing with a
stuffed doll and one that walks,
talks and wets her diaper. The
company has already done all of the
playing for you.
"The Haunting" set was mag-
nificent. The house that was filled
with angry and fearful spirits was a
beautiful mansion. The massive
griffins and lions hewed from stone
give the house a sense of forebod-
ing from the beginning. Every
character adds to the mood of the
movie. A sexual voyeur who wears
only designer clothes, a woman
held captive by her ailing mother's
health and a frightened young man
all come together under the pre-
tense of finding a cure for their
insomnia. In reality, it is a test of
The three insomniacs certainly
get their fill of fear as well as the
misleading psychologist who
believed that this experiment was
ethical and safe. Although it is a
horror movie, there is very little
death and gory violence. I enjoyed
sitting through a movie that didn't
turn my stomach repetitively.
"The Haunting" ends peacefully
because of a surprising twist of fate.
It is not the scariest movie ever
made, nor is it the scariest version
of the story, but it was worth watch-
ing. If you are in the mood for an
interesting movie that has lots of
creative images, beautiful sets and
interesting characters, "The
Haunting" is a good movie to
Dr. Scott Lucce
ECH's newest fluvilgeomor-
phologist (a specialist in the
study of land formations) is Dr.
Scott Lucce, and he is very
"I like it a lot here said
Lucce. "The department is
young and active. Most geogra-
phy departments have only one,
or maybe two, physical geogra-
phers. We have three such peo-
Lucce said that the number of
physical geographers gives him
more peer interaction. "It's nice
being around people that share
one's same interests said
This is his first year at ECU.
Here, Lucce teaches a class
about weather and climate in
addition to a class about soils.
Lucce's specialization is in the
seasonally of floods and when
the floods occur. He is currently
working on a project for the
National Science Foundation
examining mine contamination
in river sediment The research
for the project is concentrated in
the "driftless area" in southwest
Wisconsin. The "driftless area"
was bypassed by the glaciers of
the Ice Age.
Previously, he taught fluvial
and hydraulic processesthe
study of surface water hydrology
and river processes) at the
University of Southern
Dr. Lucce took the time to
explain that the sun shines more
directly in the South than the
North, and therefore it is hotter
in the South. Factors such as
barometric pressure (the weight
of the gases in the air) and tem-
perature inversions (when a
warm layer of air is on top of a
cooler layer), influence the
prevalence of pollutants in the
air. Because temperature inver-
sions hold pollutants down, peo-
ple in big cities feel the effects of
smog and other atmospheric pol-
lution more in hot weather than
during the cooler periods of the
"If you want to breathe clean
air, you need to go to a less pop-
ulated area said Lucce.
The study of the atmosphere
is intriguing , especially in our
globally changing weather pat-
tern that we are experiencing
currently. One's understanding
of global warming, including my
own, would be enhanced by tak-
ing Dr. Lucce's class.

LONDON (AP) - TV cook
Jennifer Paterson, one of the Two
Fat Ladies" who joyfully salted
their recipes with political incor-
rectness, died Tuesday.
She was 71.
Miss Paterson had been diag-
nosed with lung cancer and died in
London's Chelsea and
Westminster Hospital, the British
Broadcasting Corp. said.
Trying to savor life right to the
end, she was more interested in
fine food than the traditional gifts
for hospital patients.
"She didn't see the point of
flowers. She'd rather have caviar
friend and co-star Clarissa Dickson
Wright said Tuesday. "She was
totally larger than life and a con-
stant source of fun
Miss Paterson fell ill in July dur-
ing filming of "Two Fat Ladies a
cooking show where the colorful
chefs were the main course.
Perfectly happy to be fat, the
women toured the country on Miss

If you are looking for a unique din-
ing experience in the Emerald
City, look for the Mongolian
House on Greenville Boulevard.
The Mongolian House has a
distinct atmosphere that adds to
the meal. The atmosphere is
pleasing, relaxing and authentic
This restaurant is similar to a
Japanese steak house, except the
fear of being hit in the head with
something that a chef throws is
gone. While the setting is nice, the
food is even better.
The Mongolian House is set up
as a buffet. You can order from a
traditional menu, similar to the
ones that you would find at any
other Chinese restaurant, but most
go for the Mongolian barbecue
When beginning your feast you
head to the end of the counter and
pick up a bowl or two. Looking at
the buffet you will notice that all
of the food is uncooked. Don't let
this bother you, there will be a
remedy for the rawness at the end
of the bar. Start selecting what you
want to eat For the vegetable
lover, an array of fresh vegetables
such as carrots, zucchini, mush-
rooms, onions, bean sprouts,
pineapples, tomatoes, cabbage and
green peppers await The meat
follows the vegetables. At lunch,
beef, turkey, chicken and pork are
served. At dinner, you have the
lunch selection with the additions
of shrimp, veal and crab meat
After you have put all the food that
you could possibly want into your
bowl, the sauces are the finishing
touch. The "Chefs Selection" is
one spoonful of each of the twelve
sauces for proper taste. If you do
not prefer spicy food, or it does not
prefer you, pick and choose your
sauces carefully. After you are
done choosing you meat vegeta-
bles and sauces, you then hand
your bowl(s) to the chef behind the
counter. Right before your eyes,
he cooks the food on an open cir-
cular grill. Usually the food takes
about two minutes to cook the food
, all the way through.
When you return to your table,
the waitress or waiter will have
brought your beverage, rice and
soup. Sesame bread is also served,
and it is excellent for dipping in
soup. All together, the taste is
fresh, robust and satisfying.
The Mongolian House is �
unique and enjoyable dining expe-
rience that will have you craving
more and ready to go again soon.

Also on display are the butter
cow and smaller versions of his past
favorites, including golfer Jack
Nicklaus and villain Darth Vader.
The sculptures were made from
1,000 pounds of butter and took
about 150 hours to complete - one
of the reason Ross said he's calling
This year, as usual, the butter
will be thrown out after the fair.
Although in 1988, David
Letternian took a statue of former
zoo director Jack Hanna to New
York and let it melt on his late-
night talk show stage.
"My body tells me I probably
shouldn't do a lot more of this
because it's very heavy work and a
lot of gymnastics are involved in
getting under and around things
said Ross, 64, who grew up in
Worthington but has worked as an
artist in Santa Fe, N.M since
1991. "I feel kind of sad to be walk-
ing away from it, but that's OK
because I have other things to do

the dairy association about replac-
ing Ross, but the search for a suc-
cessor isn't officially on, Wilson
"We are going to take our time,
but there will certainly be another

Ross started working at the fair,
in 1964, when he was teaching art,
at the Ohio School for the Deaf. He
almost passed on the job, unsure
whether he wanted to spend sum
mers buttering things up.
"They took a chance on me
he said. "I told them at the time I
had no idea if I could do it because
I had never actually done any work
"And I had never worked in
Ross is a bit baffled at the over-
whelming interest in his work.
About a half-million people are
expected to walk through the dairy
building to see this year's spread
before the fair ends Aug. 22.
"Many people have told me that
this is one of the main reasons they
come to the fair and this is the first
place they go he said. "It's kind

Numerous developments have
occurred in the ECU athletics
department and ECU sports.
Perhaps one of the most surprising
events at the start of ECU's athlet-
ic career was the original mascot.
Long before ECU has Pee Dee
the Pirate, ECU was known as
The ECU Teachers was named
in part because the university was
mostly a teaching school. The
name simply did not evoke much
fear in rival schools. Shortly there-
after, the school found the Pirate
to be the most suitable name for
the university's mascots.
After years of changing nd
developing, the school found
themselves winning games, espe-
cially in football. Shortly there-
after, ECU and N.C.State started
up a rivalry. To this day, it still is'
one of the most anticipated games
of any season at ECU.
Pirates' fans have witnessed
some memorable moments against
State, such as the 1992 Peach
Bowl when ECU came back from
a 21 point deficit to rally and win
the game in the final quarter.
Others have credited the uni-
versity's hard work and dedication
to its athletes. Former ECU play-
ers such as Jeff Blake, currently
the quarterback for the Cincinnati
Bangles, have often said that the
program at ECU helped propel
him to the next level.
Statistic have shown that many
professional teams are aware of the
caliber of the players that come
from ECU. At least one ECU
player has been selected in 19 of
the last 11 NFL football drafts,
including an all-time ECU high of
eight in 1984. In the 1990's, 17
players have been selected.

the small college level to a
national level. The develop-

ic facilities and recruiting
Associate Athletic Oirecior
While the university may con-
tinue to work towards improving
athletic teams, others within the
athletic department are working
hard to develop other improve-
ments towards the school's depart-

additions to Dowdy-Ficklen

Other areas of the athletics pro-
gram have also been gearing up for
the millennium. Athletics direc-
tors and developers have been
' preparing for the groundbreaking
of the new $10.6 million Strength
and Conditioning Center in the
fall which should be completed
roughly 18 month from the pro-
jected starting date. The ground-
breaking ceremony for the center
will be during the Nov. 20th N.G
VanSant thinks that these reno-
vations are simply part of ECU
growing up process.
"The whole structure of the
athletic department has changed
"There has been a tremendous
amount of growth here even in the
last ten years
Before, the school was called
East Carolina College, but it
reached university status in the
late 1960s. At that time, women's
athletics was at a loss. ECU only
had one women's sport; synchro-
nized swimming. Today, ECU has
multiple athletic sports for not just
women but even co-ed club
sports. These are popular among
students throughout the campus.
"The sports program kind of
kept pace with the whole universi-
ty VanSant said.
"I think it (ECU's athletic pro-
gram) will continue to expand and
"With the rise in enrollment,
there has been a growth in the
alumni base and fan support and
growth of eastern North Carolina

money that will help fund bigger
and better projects as ECU moves

With a new defensive coordinator,
a new scoreboard, a refurbished
stadium and a demanding sched-
ule, the ECU Pirates are geared
up for the 1999 football season.
ECU supporters will experi-
ence an exciting and memorable
season in 1999 with their team
competing against an extremely
challenging schedule. The season
opener is slated for September 4
against West Virginia "and that's
all we're focusing on right now

The game will be played in
Charlotte's Ericsson Stadium,
home of the Carolina Panthers.
The schedule also includes tough
games against Miami and Tulane,
who finished undefeated last sea-

With the addition of coordinator
Tim Rose, the Pirates look to
improve a defense that ranked

112 Division l-A schools in total
Anchoring the defense will be
Jeff Kerr, a senior linebacker, who,
despite being hampered with
injuries, was the team's leading
tackier (115) and an All-

will be Parnell Griffin, a Football

last year. Griffin was second on the
team in tackles with 99.

four linebackers and one or two

start at strong safety with converted
receiver Travis Mayck at free safe-
ty Redshirt freshman Antwan
Adams is quite capable of filling in
at either safety position.
ECU has an outstanding crop of
freshmen recruits arriving this fall
that could make an early impact on
the defensive side of the ball.
Defensive backs Kelly Hardy,
Travis Heath and Kevin Jackson
are speedsters that will challenge
for positions. The signing of line-
men Damane Duckett, 6-6 280,
and Brian Fox, 6-3 260, give the

Leading the offense will be
quarterback David Garrard, a
Conference USA All-Freshmen
team selection who finished the
season strong throwing for a school
record 414 yards against Memphis.

terbacks around this spring prac-
tice Logan said. "Garrard will be
our starting quarterback
Ciarrard's poise and leadership
are essential if ECU is to have suc-
cess on offense this year. Joining
Garrard in the backfield will be
Jamie Wilson and Marcellus Harris,
both returning starters from last
year. Wilson finished the 1998 cam-
paign as Pirate's leading rusher with
,687 yards. Redshirt freshman
Christshawn Gilliam, sophomore
Leonard Henry and Junior college
transfer Keith Stokes will see plen-
ty of time in the backfield as well.
Lamont Chappell will return at
flanker while Arnie Powell will start
at split end. Delayo Dodd and
Aaron Harris will start at tight end,
replacing Buck Collins, who signed
a free agent contract with the
Green Bay Packers.
Samien Jones and Sherwin
Lacewell will again be on the right
side of the offensive line. With the
loss of All-Conference USA center
Danny Moore, center Anthony
Nobles will have some big shoes to
fill. Senior Derrick gamble and
sophomore Aaron Walker will start
on the left side, being pushed hard
by Chris Nelson and Phoenix
On the special team, the Pirates
will rely on senior Andrew Bayes to
handle the punting duties. Bayes is
a two time All-Conference USA
member. Walk-on Kevin Miller had
a great spring and finished as the
top place kicker. He is expected to
be challenged by incoming fresh-
man Bryce Hamilton who kicked a
54- yard field goal in high school,
showing both power and accuracy.
With those changes in style and
in lineup positions, the Pirates will
try to finish with a wining record
again this year.
