When the State Department of
Cultural Resources needed to
examine 50 artifacts from what sci-

1718, the accelerator did allow
them to learn what went into the
making of the metal itself.
The process works in multiple
steps. First, the artifact is placed in
a vacuum container. It is then blast-
ed with a beam of accelerated pro-
tons which cause the atoms in the
various elements of the metal to fly
off in a scattering of x-rays. These
x-rays then help scientists to deter-
mine which elements are present.

grade and become part of the
The new three-layered dressing,
developed by NCSU textile
researchers, increases the healing
rate and protects the wound from
bacteria and other infections.
Some members of the research
team presented their discoveries at
the 218th American Chemical
Society's national meeting Monday
in New Orleans. Researchers
include former master's student
Allison London Brown and profes-
sors Bhupender Gupta, Sam
Hudson and Alan Tonelli.
According to Hudson, a NCSU
textile professor who has done
research on the topic for more than
12 years, the innermost layers of the
bandage are metabolized by the
body. These layers are composed of
chitosen, which is a natural fiber
extracted from shellfish and
refined. The anti-fungal compound
is commonly used in medical fields.
The new dressing incorporates
layers of chitosen and synthetic
polymers under a gauze layer. The
degradation of chitosen is benefi-
cial to the growth of skin cells.
The chitosen film protects the
wound from bacteria but allows
moisture to pass through, according
to Gupta, NCSU textile professor.
Regular bandages are made of
cotton fibers, which do not break
down and therefore cannot assist in
the formation of new tissue. In the
new dressing, only the outermost
layer need be removed and discard-
ed, as the inner layers biodegrade
and become part of the healed skin.

Advances in HIV treatment
PITTSBURGH (AP)-Oniy a
handful of medical centers around the
world are willing to transplant organs in
HIV-positive patients a controversial
procedure both in terms of medical
success and societal acceptance.
But surgeons at an international
liver transplantation conference Friday
said much of that could change as
aggressive new therapies like the. so-
called AIDS "cocktail" allow people
infected with HIV to live longer.

Key to HIV transplants is finding
patients who are heakhy enough to
qualify and are willing to take care of
their new organs once they get them.
Another key is controlling hepatitis
C, which is often found in HIV patients
and invariably reinfects the new liver
once it has been transplanted.
At this point, there is very little data
on transplantation tor patients infected
with HIV, the virus which causes
AIDS, and no papers have been pub-

He presented findings at the con-
ference on four HIV patients who
underwent the procedure between
September 1997 and March 1999.
In all the cases, the liver transplants

Education secretary warns
of Y2K effects on student aid
Education Secretary Richard Riley
said many colleges and universities
are not ready for the expected Year
2000 computer crisis and that stu-
dent-aid delivery may be affected
unless improvements are made.
Because older computer systems
are programmed to only read two
digits for the year, many computers
will be set back to 1900 at the turn
of the millennium. Experts are
undecided whether this worldwide
problem will have disastrous or
minor effects on life in January.
The secretary said 40 percent of
college respondents do not expect
to have their mission-critical sys-
tems, computer systems which are
necessary for student aid alloca-
tions, in place until October. He
also said he was disappointed that
only iZ percent of schools respond-
ed to the survey. Riley said a fol-
low-up survey will be sent directly
to the schools' chief officers.
Terry Hartle, senior vice presi-
dent of the American Council on
Education, said he believes the
computer problem will not have as
much of an impact as Riley fears.
He said the survey in which the
education department released
only used a very small sample and
said the results may be flawed
because the survey was distributed
in the summer. But, he said the
issue of fixing computers on college
campuses is complex.
The Department of Education
received high marks recently from
a Congressional subcommittee
reviewing the government's pre-
paredness for the Y2K computer
problem. According to Riley,
because student aid programs rely
on data partnerships with the col-
leges and universities it serves, it
cannot be sure information flow
will not be affected.
In fact, the Education
Department's inspector general
said colleges and universities were
at "high risk" of being unprepared
for delivery of student-aid informa-
tion. Riley said only 22 of the more
than 5,800 schools have tested their
student-aid programs against the

The new murals in the Pirate Underground area of Mcndenhall are the
subject of controversy, but we at TEC believe that ECU's students should
be encouraged to display their talents as much as possible.
Since the Pirate Underground, now in its third year running, has found
a permanent home in the Mcndenhall billiards room, students have been
able to sec great bands for free in a smoke-free, alcohol-free environment
So why not spruce up the billiards room with home-grown artwork as well?
During the spring and summer semester, the Pirate Underground paid
Kymia Nawabi $500 to paint a mural with the theme of multi-cultural
expression in the area of the room where the bands perform.
It's the best way to complement the student-run program, which usual-
ly draws an enthusiastic crowd. And, it adds an atmosphere to the room that
most students can appreciate.
The project also gave an ECU art student the chance to build her port-
folio, while detracting from the institutional monotony of the room's once-

The Pirate Underground is a wonderful venue for student bands and

tafawcr me this: why bother? What
da people see in AOL? I aimed on
for my free trial month once and
only thing I even remotely
! about it was the e-mail. Other
than that, I saw nothing of value.
Then, a friend of mine came to
me and said, "Ryan, chatting is
where it's at You can meet so many
interesting people, and they never
have to know that you are a geek
And so, I signed onto my
account, my arms open to the good
people of Coolville. I clicked on the
space marked People Connection,
and there I was in a chat room filled
with interesting people.
Since this was my first chatting
experience, I decided to just watch
for a few minutes to get a feel for it.
It occurred to me that each one of
these people must have signed
onto their accounts with hopes that
it will soothe the massive head
wound they are obviously suffering
from. The only thing these people
could say was "hey everybody" and
"this room sux. C-ya
Figuring that I was in the
Lobotomy Room, I decided to go
into a specialty room. They were all
full for the most part, so I sifted
through and found a room called
High Priests. I entered and was
immediately involved in a heated
argument over the Trinity.
Tempers were flaring, then all of a
sudden, a guy called Venom223
entered the room with the standard
Most people ignored the guy,
but one kind-hearted soul named
SisMaric replied and said "24, K"
Venom223 replied with, and I
quote, "Let's get it on SisMaric
replied with "Sorry, I'm a nun
Venom223, not taking the hint,
replied with "Hey SisMaric, let's
go to a private room
As I have said before, this was
my first time in a chat room.
However, I do not need a cyber-
dictionary to figure out what a pri-
vate room is for. It's the Internet
stud's Motel 6, which, in conjunc-
tion with the optional vibrating
keyboard, I'm sure can provide for
a highly erotic rendezvous.
SisMaric left the room at once,
again foiling Venom223's plan to
fulfill his dream of hooking up with
a young and attractive nymphoma-
niac nua It was then that I knew
that chat rooms were not for me. I
feel that they are silly and decep-
tive, not to mention highly unorga-
nized. I have no clue as to why peo-
ple would want to spend countless
hours talking to these people, many
of whom are probably not even the
gender that they claim to be.
And so, I propose that all AOL
users take one day out of their
week to stay away from their com-
puters. Go outside and play. Climb
a tree. Do whatever you want, just
don't go near AOL. While you arc
all outside, maybe I can finally get
through to check my e-mail.

Gun control debate rages on
Gun controls, restrictions and
laws are topics that never seetn
to filter out of the media or
Gun controls, restrictions and
laws are topics that never seem to
filter out of the media or political
arena. It is such a sensitive topic and
is becoming more so in light of the
recent tragedies that took place in
the Colorado and Georgia schools.
Everyone agrees that those inci-
dents were absolutely horrible, and
that the homicide and accidental
gun death rates in the United
States, compared among other
countries that have tougher restric-
tions, is much higher.
Tragic deaths and higher rates
are undeniable to both sides of the
issue. Those wanting more exten-
sive and comprehensive restrictions
assert that these new policies will
lower death tolls, and reduce gener-
al violence in America. Those
opposing any new governmental
controls deny that this proposed
effect will occur, while reminding
lawmakers of American's right to
bear arms. To properly address the
issue, three questions have to be
answered in deciding an
approach�if any, to this never end-
ing debate on gun control.
First question: Is it possible to
ban or further restrict the possession
or use of guns? The second amend-
ment in the Bill of Rights clearly
makes the provision to "bear arms
Yes, this right was written in a dif-
ferent time, but nonetheless, it is
still explicitly there. Altering and
bending the Constitution to suit
interest groups and public outcry is
a very dangerous practice.
Restricting gun possession even
further is where the bulk of the
debate lies, though. This brings the
issue to the second question.
If legal restrictions are enacted,
is it really possible to change the
societal view and handling of guns
now? Even if strict gun control laws
are made, there enforcement would
prove to be near impossible which
would almost have a reverse effect
Think about prohibition for a
minute. Admittedly, countries like
Canada and England, who basically
prohibit gun possession, have very
low crime incidents involving guns,
but their whole society has never
been exposed to the ability and
atmosphere without those laws.
Legislative bodies can make new
laws, but they can't make people
feel, think, believe and thus behave
differently just by passing restric-
tive policies. Thinking that laws
alone will change behavior
overnight is unrealistic.
Thirdly, would new laws really
curb violence in the schools and on
the streets, since these problems are
the ones that fuel the gun issue's
fire? If it were for some reason, pos-
sible for legal and societal changes
to occur, this would neither stop
psychotic little children from shoot-
ing guns in schools, nor would it
stop gangs and drug dealers from
shooting each other, as well as inno-
cent bystanders. It is insane to
believe that "normal" children
commit violent acts just because
guns exist. If that were the case,
then there would be a multitude of
school shootings, and this may be
news to some, but drug dealers do
not mind breaking the law. Thus, a
law limiting or banning ownership
of guns because of people who
would break the law regardless is
ridiculous, and would ultimately
prove to be ineffective.
Whether or not gun control
restrictions should be made masks
the real point; those restrictions will
not remedy the problem. It's too
late. Despite the legal obstacles,
society is already locked into a cer-
tain mode that laws can't realistical-

I just want to express my disap-
pointment for the fact that the
ECU baseball and softball teams
were not awarded championship
rings for winning their respective
titles. These two teams displayed
true athleticism this past season,
and deserve much more than a ring.
According to the grapevine, nei-
ther team will be receiving a cham-
pionship ring for their dedication,
hard work and true Pirate aggres-
sion. Instead, each team will have
to go on knowing that their own
athletic department does not sup-
port them as much as they should.
Whatever happened to giving cred-
it where credit is due?
The baseball team was national-
ly ranked week after week, and
after winning the Colonial Athletic
Association conference tourna-
ment, traveled to Baton Rouge, as
the number one seed. They then
defeated former national champion
Louisiana State University in the
NCAA regionals. The softball team
did exactly the same by winning
the Big South Tourney title and
achieving automatic berth in the

Stress overwhelms students
Healthy Iking reduces
tension, daily pressures
ST AFP WKITKK
Stress, that feeling that pressures
people to get things done on time,
also rushes students through their
lives and experiences.
As students gradually settle down
into the college groove, they begin
noticing things about their minds
and bodies that perhaps they haven't
noticed before. There is an empti-
ness that is sometimes caused from
the separation from one's parents,
friends and familiar surroundings as
well as an inner voice of discontent
brought about by the unfamiliar
locale, strange Faces, new rules and
regulations, and most of all sched-
As students meet new friends and
become acquainted with their new
neighborhood, many of these
uncomfortable feelings dissipate and
they learn to relax. Before they know
it, students actually begin to enjoy
the new freedoms of being indepen-
dent. From time to time, there will
be feelings of the need to pull your
hair out, yell at somebody, "pop a
pill or throw a roommate's stereo
across the room because of stress.
There are many kinds of stress,
such as that which occurs from a loss
of a parent, friend or pet, but there is
a particular type of stress found in
the college atmosphere. This mon-
ster comes from all sides�brain
drain, bad relationships, bills, dorm
life, alcohol, cigarettes, illegal dnigs,
STDs, neighbors, poor diet, lack of
parking and roommates; the list is
endless. For the most part, students
manage to plow through these
dilemmas with little difficulty.
Occasionally, several of these stres-
sors accumulate beyond control, and
a person "loses it"
Numerous books and articles
have been written on how to handle
stress. One such article appeared
recently in ParadeMagazine entitled
"Let Goof Stress It begins witht
the realization that no matter whef
you are or where you are, stress is
a part of life.
L.W. Winik defines stress asl
"the body's reaction to a perceived
threat. Adrenaline and hormones are'
released, and the nervous system is
activated, sharpening the senses.
Simultaneously, pulse rises, i
muscles tense, and the.

As game time approaches, the

Blocked punts cost Longhorns victory
AUSTIN, Texas (AP)�There is
life in North Carolina State
University after Terry Holt. It's
just on the other side of the ball.
North Carolina State continued
its year of early-season upsets
Saturday night, using three
blocked punts and a stingy sec-
ond-half defense to pull out a Zi-
20 victory over No. 17 Texas in
the Black Coaches Association
Terrence Holt, younger brother of
the departed All-American wide
receiver, blocked two punts that
were converted into touchdowns
for North Carolina State.
"I've never been associated with
a game in which we've won in this
fashion, with so many blocked
punts said NC State coach Mike
O'Cain. "It wasn't very pretty,
which is typical of a first game. It
had a magical ending.
"We emphasize blocking punts
and it paid off O'Cain said.
With the Wolfpack trailing 20-15
with 3:32 left, Holt sprinted in
from the right side to get a piece
of Ryan Long's punt at the Texas
48. Eric Leak, who blocked a
punt in the first half that led to a
safety, picked up the loose ball
and ran it in for the go-ahead
Quarterback Jamie Barnette
found Chris Coleman in the cor-
ner of the end zone for the 2-
point conversion and 23-20 lead.
"We had pressure from the out-
side, and I just took the right
angle and got to the ball Holt
said. "We knew that special teams
was going to win it
They had to. North Carolina
State's offense struggled all night.
Barnette, the ACC total offense
leader in 1998, was constantly
harassed by Texas pass rushers
and finished 9-of-26 for 65 yards
with one interception. The
Wolfpack gained only 171 yards.
Texas drove to midfield looking
for a possible tying field goal, but
came up short when quarterback
Major Applewhite was stuffed on
Texas played its first game in four
years without Division I-A career
rushing leader Ricky Williams.
Applewhite passed for 316 yards
and one touchdown and ran for
The Texas running game was a
pale comparison to a year ago,
however. Texas gained just 56
yards on 36 attempts. Backup tail-
back Victor Ike led the
Longhorns with 48 yards on. 12
"The only stats that mean any-
thing are the kicking game and
turnovers. It's a devastating loss
for our kids said Texas coach
Mack Brown. "You can't have
three blocked punts for 16 points
and win a ball game
NC State pulled off its third early-
season upset, in as many years,
after victories over Syracuse in
1997 and Florida State in 1998. It
also was NC State coach Mike
O'Cain's first victory over Brown.
O'Cain was 0-5 against Brown's
.North Carolina teams.
Despite its recent fortunes in big
early-season games, NC State
very nearly was victimized by its
Texas changed consecutive
Wolfpack turnovers into a 10-0
first quarter lead, on a 2-yard run
by Applewhite and a 48-yard field
goal by Kris Stockton.
NC State shook off those mis-
takes on its next possession. Ray'
Robinson capped an 80-yard drive
when he broke outside for a 25-
yard touchdown run to make k
The Wolfpack pulled to 10-9
when Leak recorded NC State's
first blocked punt. The ball rolled
31 yards to the end zone but three
NC State players couldn't pick k
up before the ball rolled over the
back line for a safety.
NC State made up for that mis-
take when Holt blocked a punt'

THE EAST CAROLINIAN
Graf looks at life without tennis
NEW YORK (AP) Steffi Graf
came back to the V.ii. Open wear-
ing pumps instead of sneakers, a
sleek navy blue dress instead of
tennis whites, and a carefree smile
that revealed how comfortable she
is with her decision to retire.
These may be a time when Graf
will miss the game so much that she
wilt change her mind, lace up again
and grab her rackets.
"Right now she said Saturday
on the eve of the tournament she
won five times, "walking away"
seems extremely easy. I don't
know if that's going to be the
case in a few months
It seems so easy, she said,
because she has no regrets. She has
been playing professionally more
than half her life, from 13 to 30.
Her 22nd Grand Slam singles
title, the French Open in June, was
her most emotional and satisfying,
completing a journey back from
injuries and illnesses that nearly
ended her career before she was
ready to quit. She goes out now on
her own terms and unquestionably
as one of the game's greatest play-
"I feel pretty happy about leav-
ing it right now Graf said, two
weeks after announcing she would
skip the Open and retire from the
tour. "I know I'm going to miss the
competitiveness, without a doubt.
The working out. It's different
being on a bike or a StairMaster
instead of being able to run around
and be upset if you miss a shot or
be happy if you win it. But right
now, I'm not missing it. It may
sound a little strange, knowing me,
but in a way a lot of pressure has
gone and it feels good
Graf spoke at the National
Tennis Center on a beautiful, warm
afternoon after Pete Sampras,
Andre Agassi, Martina Hingis and
Serena Williams and others playful-
ly participated in the annual Arthur
Ashe Kids' Day.
A sellout crowd of 20,883 helped
raise more than $500,000 for chari-
ties, including $400,000 that will go
to the National Junior Tennis
League to help programs aimed at
inner city kids.
We have an immediate opening for two student
assistants in the newspaper office. These students
would assist the secretary for 10-15 hours a week in
the day-to-day functions of the newspaper.
Come by our office in the Student Publications Building
across from Mendenhall and Joyner to complete an
application or call 328-6366 for more information.

learned, is an event at which

It's not even that hard to get involved. All I have to do is to file the application
form at the SGA office in Mendenhall Student Center and pay the $10
refundable fee by September 3. Where am I going to get $10 from before
the first week in September? Mom! I'm sure she'd donate $10 to help her
adorable son run for President. Then its time to campaign before
the September 22 election. I can hang banners, hand out
fliers and buttons, and make campaign promises. I'll
promise students free parking, fight for a four-day

love this! I can leave my legacy at ECU.
