The Duke University Blue Devils will

time that Duke has played in Greenville.
The kickoff for the game is at 3:15 p.m.
Tickets are available at the Mendenhall
Central Ticket Office.
The William E. Laupus Health
Sciences Library will celebrate its 30th
anniversary in a 10:30 a.m. program in
the Brody Auditorium located at the
School of Medicine. The speaker for
the event is Dr. Fred W. Roper, dean of
the College of Library and Information
Science at the University of South
Carolina. A dedication, reception and
tour of the library are included in the
morning program.
Last Friday, ECU officials announced
a new plan to offer a select number of
incoming freshmen assured admission
to graduate programs in medicine,
physical therapy and occupational ther-
apy.
The new program will assure stu-
dents who are selected, if they main-
tain an appropriate level of perfor-
mance as ECU undergraduates, admis-
sion to medical school or the therapy
programs. The students will be exempt
from taking standardized tests such as
the Graduate Record Exam or the
Medical College Admissions Test.
Dr. Thomas Powell, director of
admissions, said these are the first
such programs at a public university in
North Carolina. They are designed to
make ECU even more attractive to out-
standing high school students who
want to pursue a health-care profes-
sion, he said.
FAYETTEVILLE-A 6-year-old pretend-
ing to be a criminal got a little taste of
the real thing when the toy handcuffs
he was wearing wouldn't unlock.
Becky Fisher called the Cumberland
County Sheriff's Department Saturday
after her son's toy handcuffs wouldn't
come off.
She tried one of the keys that came
with the toy. It broke. She tried the
other one. It broke, too, so she called
for help.
Deputy J.L. Farra came out and
tried his handcuff key, the kind he uses
to take handcuffs off of real suspects.
It wouldn't work, either.
Farra then used a pair of pliers to
break the hinge on the toy handcuffs to
finally free the child, who was not
injured.

STAFF WHITER
If you manage your finances poor-
ly during college, you can suffer
unfavorable effects for many years
down the road.
In order to raise awareness on
the need for responsible financial
management, the United States
Student Association (USSA) is
mounting a nationwide campaign
to educate students on this impor-
tant topic.
According to a press release
from the USSA:
"Beginning in September
USSA will reinforce responsible
spending and budgeting messages
in college newspapers and
through on-campus distribution of
educational materials.
"We will also direct students to
a financial education website
www.creditalk.com that provides
useful information on budgeting,
repaying debts, responsible use of
a credit card, and maintaining a
solid credit history
Developing effective financial
management skills and responsi-
ble spending priorities is the goal
of several campus departments.
The Financial Aid office
requires entrance and exit loan
counseling for students who bor-
row federal loans to finance their
education.
These counseling sessions are
designed to reinforce student's
understanding of the loan repay-
ment terms to avoid the adverse
effects from defaulting on federal
student loan aid.
Another campus department is
also trying a proactive approach to
preventing student debt-related
problems.
The Center for Counseling and
Human Development is offering
several "Managing Your Money"
workshops for the first time this
semester starting on September 7.
The workshop is designed to
be interactive and focus on indi-
vidual needs rather than in a lec-
ture format.
"This is the first time we've
ever done this and we have seen a
need for this type of service said
Dr. Al Smith, assistant Director of
the Center for Counseling and
Student Development.
"Hopefully we can raise their
awareness and provide them with
some financial management
skills
"When we map out where their
money goes I think they will be
shocked at how much those candy
bars between classes really add
up Smith said.
Lack of planning for long-term
expenses can create burdens if a
student spends frivolously.
"I think the biggest problem is
the immediacy of spending where
they walk out after getting a pay-
check and spend it all immediate-
ly on clothes or entertainment, not
forecasting expenses and expect-
ing mom or dad to come to the res-
cue Smith said.
One area Dr. Smith sees the
most student difficulty is in prop-
erly managing credit card debt.
"Credit cards are where stu-
dents run into a lot of problems
with interest rates of 18 and
higher Smith said.
It is a sentiment echoed by stu-
dents on campus.
"I have three credit cards and I
am trying to consolidate all of
them into one said Kathy
Ringold, senior.
"I used to have twice the
amount of credit card debt said
Michelle Conner, junior. "Now
I'm setting aside $75 to $100 per
month and just paying off as many
bills as possible to try and be com-
pletely out of debt by the first of
the year
One student provided some
simple and direct advice to man-
aging finances.
"Don't spend more than you
have, " Conner said.

workshops cover:
1. How to meet expenses
and what are the different
ways in which to do so.
2. How to set ups and stick
to a budget.
3. Money management
issues (checking
accounts and credit
cards).
4. Self-control and ways to
avoid the temptations to
overspend (leaving
money at home).
5. Financial aid strategies
(realistic avenues for
earning money and
paying bills).

ECU is one of 29 universities in the
nation that was recently awarded a
$924,437 federal grant to help fund
on-line learning.
This grant will support the
School of Industry and
Technology's On-line Wireless
Learning Internet Solutions
(OWLS) project- The grant, award-
ed by the Department of
Education, will be provided to
ECU over the next three years.
The goal of the OWLS project is
to develop, expand, advance and
support long-distance education,
which the University has been
working toward for the past five
years.
'This grant will allow ECU stu-
dents access to new ways to receive
information delivered to them by
the Internet said Dr. Darryl
Davis, dean of the School of

The Y2K bug is a flaw in some
older computers that record years
in two-digit form. When the year
2000 rolls around in four months,
many computers may think it is
1900.
Officials say the Office of
Information Technology, which is
responsible for student computers,
administrative computer systems
and telephones, is almost com-
pletely Y2K-compliant.
For example, as of April 23, the
University's 20,000 telephone lines

ment for television and video com-

The idea of coming to college
ready to battle depression is not
stressed to incoming freshmen, as
are the need to study or the dangers
of drinking, said University of Iowa
freshman Amanda Ball.
After puberty, women are twice
as likely to develop depression than
men, Rao said.
The shift from high school to
college is usually the first consider-
able change in a young adult's life.

Paris predicted a few "unfore-
seen glitches" on New Year's Day
and said OIT is working on contin-
gency plans. He added that OIT
has begun testing its systems by
separating off portions of its net-
work and running the clock to mid-
night Dec. 31.
Chips embedded in small elec-
tronic devices, like incubators and
calculators, can also be affected by
the bug, said Melissa Mills, assis-
tant dean for Arts and Sciences
Computing.
At the Medical Center, adminis-
trators are remediating central

2,500 workstations and servers, as
well as organizing critical clinical
systems updates, said Dave Kirby,

and manager of systems program-
Whether it's a good or bad experi-
ence, it's enough to spark bouts of
depression, she said.
Though most freshmen seem
caught up in the excitement of
their first week of college. Ball said,
she can see why depression is
prevalent among college women.
Ill associate psychology profes-
sor Sam Kuperman agreed with
Rao's findings, but, he said, the
numbers seemed high.
The study may not be complete-
ly accurate because the women
turned in self evaluations rather
than a professional evaluation,
Kuperman said.

Kirby said Duke's work on the
Y2K issue began in 1989, and con-
tinued "with an increased pace
starting about three-and-a-half
years ago Kirby said.
Kirby said several summer pro-
jects-including some departmental
systems, some Human Resources
work and some administrative sys-
tems-have not yet been completed,
but that they should be wrapped up
with time to spare.
Duke Power, which supplies the
University with electricity,
announced that it was ready as of
June 30. But still, part of Duke's
Y2K preparation included securing
a generator in case the power grid
fails, Trask said.
It is best to recognize the symp-
toms of depression early, such as
changes in eating and sleeping pat-
terns, feelings of self-worthless-
ness, spontaneous crying, lack of
energy and thoughts of suicide,
Kuperman said.
"Severe depression is not some-
thing that you can just snap out of;
it is genetic and biological, just like
any other medical disease Rao
said. "There is definitely help

Professors played a vital role in
getting the grant. Co-director of
the OWLS project Dr. Barry
DuVall and Dr. David Ilillis, both
professors at the School of Industry
and Technology, helped rally sup-
port for the grant. These men ded-
icated much of their time and effort
to assure that the University would
benefit from the grant.
Another important factor in why
ECU was chosen for the grant is
Ericsson Wireless Internet
Solutions.
"Ericsson Wireless probably
encouraged the education system
of ECU for us to receive this
grant Davis said.
Ericsson will be putting more
money into the on-line project, giv-
ing ECU a total of over $3 million
dollars for the area of long-distance
education.

Clinton professes faith in Reno
THURMONT, Md. (AP) - Amid
serious questions over the role of
federal law enforcement agencies
in the Waco siege, President
Clinton said Saturday he has confi-
dence in Attorney General Janet
Reno, but stopped short of saying
the same for FBI Director Louis
Freeh.
Summoning reporters to the
presidential retreat at Camp David,
Md to speak about Mideast peace
developments, Clinton was asked if
he had confidence in Reno and
Freeh.
"Well I certainly have in the
Attorney General. You know she
told us what happened. She told us
she asked the right questions and
didn't get the right answers said
Clinton.
As for Freeh, while not casting
blame, Clinton remained reserved.
"I think that with regard to the
director there is going to be an
independent investigation which
she supports and which he has said
he supports Clinton said. "I don't
think it serves any purpose to
assign blame until the investigation
is concluded and the evidence is
in
Clinton said he thought Freeh
"did the right thing in saying that
there ought to be an independent
investigation and I think that is all
we can ask of him
The FBI admitted last week
that combustible tear gas was used
in the Waco siege, reversing six
years of statements to the contrary.
Reno ordered an investigation to
"get to the bottom" of why her
orders to use only non-burning tear
gas were ignored at Waco, which
ended with the death of cult leader
David Koresli and about 80 of his
followers.
Meanwhile, a congressman says
investigators are reviewing footage
obtained by a Colorado filmmaker
to see if it shows U.S. armed forces
firing into Koresh's compound at
the close of the Waco standoff.
"We have those tapes and have
given them to two experts to ana-
lyze Rep. Dan Burton, cTiairman
of the I louse CJovernment Reform
Committee, said Friday. Two sep-
arate entities are looking at them
frame-by-frame
He refused to disclose what
individuals are reviewing the film.
Filmmaker Mike McNulty said
he obtained the infrared film, taken
by an FBI surveillance aircraft at
about 9,000 feet, through the
Freedom of Information Act
McNulty, the filmmaker,
claimed to participants at a
Republican retreat Friday that his
footage indicates that the Army's
secretive Delta Forces fired at least
60 rounds into Koresh's compound
51 days after the siege started on
Feb. 28, 1993.
Pentagon officials have said
three Army special forces officers
were at the scene, but were there
only as observers.
Only under tightly prescribed
rules is the military allowed to par-
ticipate in domestic law enforce-
ment operations.
If it turns out that military forces
did open fire without proper autho-
rization, "then those who did it will
and should be prosecuted said
Burton.
In Texas, a federal judge han-
dling a lawsuit brought by survivors
of the siege was forced to intervene
after federal agents tried to keep
Texas Rangers from entering a
Waco storage facility to search for
evidence. The Dallas Morning
News reported in Saturday's edi-
tions.
Agents with the Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms
assigned to maintain custody of a
storage locker containing evidence
recovered from Koresh's compound
reportedly told the Rangers that
their lawyers in Washington had
ordered them to deny the Rangers
entry, the newspaper said.
Law enforcement officials in
Texas, speaking on the condition of
anonymity, told the newspaper that
the Rangers were allowed to search
boxes only after U.S. District Judge
Walter Smith was called.
The Rangers were looking for a
spent pyrotechnic device that was
photographed in 1993 by investiga-
tors at the Branch Davidian com-
pound. Texas officials said they did
not find the missing round at the
storage locker.

The East Carolinian
Huron, have said they will call back
state legislators this week, if neces-
sary, to explore action to end the
strike that began on Aug. 30.
A state law bans walkouts by
educators. Adamany has said law-
makers likely would invoke that
1994 no-strike law, which fines
teachers one day's pay for each day
on strike.
Teachers attending the rally
Sunday said they were not worried.
"I don't think they can do it. I
don't think they can levy fines
against 8,000 to 9,000 teachers
especially when there is an illegal

SB 120 cites studies conducted
in North Carolina as the motivation
for passing the bill. The bill states,
"79 percent of high school students
say that obtaining alcohol by hav-
ing an adult buy it for them is very
easy and 60 percent say that obtain-
ing alcohol from the homes of other
teens or adults is also very easy
"I am definitely fur it. I feel it's
about time a bill has been passed to

"You are my fire, my one desire
believe when I say I want it
that way
What the hell is this world com-
ing to? Every minute of every hour
' every day for the past week and
half I have had the Backstreet
Boys smash hit song "I Want it that
Way" in my head. I openly admit
and fully believe that I am not and
I repeat, not a fan of theirs, mainly
�'because I exceed age 14 and am not
Sporting pre-pubescent breasts
hough some may disagree about
lie latter.)
So why do I sing the song con-
:antly? Why haven't I gotten sick
if it yet? Why did I spend five min-
ites alone in my room trying to fig-
re out how to play the chords on
iy guitar so I could woo all the girlz
all the phatty-bxm-batty party?
'he answer to these questions is
mple.Someone suggested that
laybe I was trying to get in touch
ith my inner pre-pubescent girl
iersonaliry. Then after many days
if thought, I realized that was not
ie case. The real reason I have
ieen singing the Backtreet Boys is
cause (drum roll please)
I believe the Boys sold their
(souls to the Devil himself, more
(commonly known as Bill Z. Bub. I
jthink the Boys were all sitting
iund one day looking fly, trying to
j tfiink of a way to get "Wimmems
and Benjamins or as we all know,
women and money. Then POOF
Bill Z. Bub appears with a con-
tract�and I don't mean a record
contract.
He asks, "Do you Boys wanna
be famous?"
Flash to the last week of August
1999. Some poor bastard is walking
around Verdeville, NC singing "I
Want it that Way and what's more
is he is enjoying the song.
It has been on the radio for
months upon months and MTV
even had to retire the video from its
TRL countdown because it was
No. I forever. Still, every time the
song is on the radio or 'IY (VI1-1
still plays the video) I sjop and
watch it.
What's more, is that even my fel-
low peers are intrigued by the song;
in fact, one of my fellow Kast
Carolinian co-workers is going to
their "sold-out" concert in
Charlotte on Sept. 17�wow! Do
you believe yet? Why else would
millions and millions of people
enjoy such a lame song that we
would otherwise disregard as
"abominable boy-group bull excre-
ment" (and i don't mean number
one). Instead, we opt to remain left
of the dial and whistle along
because we are brainwashed by the
Dark Prince s powers.
The Devil is in control. He is
slowly taking over our world and
brainwashing us one at a time. If
you like the song, you are under the
spell. If you hate it, run because the
Devil has his hellhounds on your
trail so he can pull you into the
Backstreet Boy craze. Run! You can
still save yourself. It is too late for
me, pretty soon I will slick my hair
up and walk around campus with a
cane, even though I can walk just
fine without one.
Well Bill Z.Bub must have had a
field day when he saw his Boys
(and his sitle projects N'Syne and
98 Degrees) sweeping the charts as
well as the little girls' hearts. By the
way, isn't it coincidental that 98
Degrees is a pretty hot temperature
perhaps a I loll reference?
And oh yeah, the first line of "I
Want It That way" is "You are my
FIRE!? I guess the Boy-Band
schtick is gonna work for a while, or
at least until the Wallflowers and
the Spice Girls come back around.
Now that the millennium is
upon us, some predict that it is the
end of the world where the Devil
returns to wreak havoc on all
mankind. By the way, the
Backstreet Boys' latest album hap-
pens to be titled "Millennium

When one thinks about fraternities and sororities, certain things come to
mind. Parties, alcohol, hazing and "Animal House" are usually the first; the
Ronald McDonald rlouse and causes for battered women, however, do not.
The fact is, that in the late 1990s, Greeks are trying to change their image
and escape the negative stereotypes that have plagued them in the past.
In recent years, fraternities and sororities have been involved in charities
such as the Relay for Life, New Directions and the Boys and Girls Club.
Pledges to some organizations have to complete a number of community
service hours, while others must maintain a certain GPA in order to stay in
the organization.
These developments are a welcome departure from negative stories involv-
ing ECU's Greek community.
The plight of fraternities and sororities at ECU is parallel to the plight of the
school itself. F-CU was once ranked among the nation's lx:st party schools by
a major publication. ECU has had to work hard at overcoming this negative
stereotype, just as fraternities and sororities must do.
People think that all Greek organizations are social. In fact, many organiza-
tions are academic and service-oriented. Academic organizations are specif-
ic to a chosen field of study, while service groups help improve the commu-
nity. These are polar opposite to what most people think when they consid-
er Greek organizations, because even the social organizations give back to
the community. In fact, many raise money for local charities and causes
throughout the Greenville area. These organizations hope that in the future,
people will think of the positive effects each has had on the ECl I commu-
nity, instead of "Animal I louse

Fifty ways to love your lever
I recently drove to the western part
of the state and spent the weekend
in the small town of Cherokee, NC.
Cherokee is actually an Indian
reservation and the new home of
I lerrah's casino.
This is a quiet town, except for
the loud noises made by screaming,
chain-smoking back-woods women
that just won $25 on a slot machine
which had previously taken over
$100 from her.
There is no alcohol to be found
anywhere, the town is "dry" and
the nearest place to get some booze
is about 15 miles away in an even
smaller town called Maggie Valley.
So if anyone is desperate enough�
and stupid enough�to drink, you
can drive half an hour along danger-
ous fog-covered mountain roads to
grab a brewski.
My friend and I made it to
Maggie Valley in about 15 minutes,
found a store called "Evolution's
Waiting Room" and bought warm
beer and stale chips. It sounds
depressing, but in college, week-
ends like this are what makes life
worth living.
Part of the college experience is
exploring new areas of life and
expanding your horizons. If you are
old enough to drink, the trip
becomes that much more exciting.
Just look at Homer's The Iliad,
where the men traveled all over,
and where ever they stopped for
the night they drank themselves
blind. Now if that does not describe
college life, I don't know what does.
But back to the story. I spent a
lot of time watching the peuple
gamble, and I noticed a trend:
People were losing money. Lots of
money.
I laughed to myself as I watched
people dump wheelbarrows full of
quarters into computerized slot
machines only to see them an hour
later with an ashtray full of butts,
bags under their eyes and a counte-
nance like their son just showed
them his new dress. Plus, they had
an empty wheelbarrow.
But as I watched these pitiful
sheep line up to lose their money I
had a thought They deserve to lose
their money. They deserve to lose
it because of what we have done to
Indians for hundreds of years.
Now the Indians have come up
with a scheme to get back at the
blond, blue-eyed devils and they
have unleashed their weapon with
vigor. Now the Indians are getting
rich (and getting all the benefits
that come with it) and the
Americans are getting, well
scalped. So when your excess stui-
dent financial aid check comes in, I
say go gambling in Cherokee�and
don't forget your wheelbarrow.

LETTER TO
EDITOR
Sachs should find outlet for aggression
Never has a TEC Opinion column
so warmed the cockles of my heart
while simultaneously producing a
moment of pure entrepreneurial
inspiration like Chris Sachs' "How
to avoid getting bum-rushed
Mr. Sachs' stunning insight into
the dynamics of human behavior,
his novel idea that those less fortu-
nate than him are put on earth sole-
ly to meet his entertainment needs
reminded me of why I read this
newspaper.
That "beggar" on the corner,
that "leech" of a being, as Mr.
Sachs' so eloquently describes, you
know, one of those "street urchins
who are getting lazier and lazier
(and we all know that's the reason
he's there in the first place,) the fact
is, that in all likelihood he has prob-
ably endured a long history of men-
tal illness, which only gives cre-
dence to his genetic inferiority.
Sachs' idea is pretty good: "to
make the beggars do hand-stands,
push-ups and cartwheels to get our
change I agree, these people are
definitely valuable and untapped
entertainment resources. Pure gold.
But I have a better idea.
At least one week out of the year
there should be special licenses
sold for "Lazy Street Urchin Bum"
hunting season. There aren't that
many of these guys, so we would
have to be careful not to decimate
the population too quickly. I assure
you, though, they're being churned
out a fairly steady rate so the popu-
lation growth equations wouldn't
be to hard to figure out.
The number of licenses would
have to be limited, as would be the
total number of bagged bums per
annual season. Not only that, but
these events could be televised
nationally. We talking prime time,

afford the general public high qual-j
ity entertainment and allow rea(
princes like Mr. Sachs to have thej
opportunity to release all those)
aggressive impulses that are really
rooted in intense feelings of self
loathing and inferiority. I'm talking
pure catharsis here.
Nothing makes you feel better
than treating other people like liter-
al garbage, you know? Hell, maybe!
I'm on to a revolutionary form of;

OPINION!
LETTER TO
EDITOR
Columnist neglects to check facts j
This article is in response to the
opinion column about Northern
students which was printed in last
Tuesday's issue of the F!ast
Carolinian. I don't know if the
author of that particular article took
time to read the cover story of that
paper, but his words were very hyp-
ocritical.
The story was regarding the
growth and prosperity ECU has
experienced over the past few years
and the further positive develop-
ment that the University is expect-
ing to gain over the next 10 years.
i
This semester's freshman class
was the largest ever at 3,253. 737 of
these new students were out-of-
state residents. It doesn't take a
math major to figure out some very
important numbers. The out-of-
state population represents about
2i percent of the incoming fresh-
men. When we examine costs we
see that out of the $6,001,854 in
tuition fees collected form the
freshman class this fall, $3,524,334
of that was paid out by guess who?
A good percentage of the money
being spent around here is deliv-
I
j
ered to the cashiers office in little
. white envelopes which were post-j
marked in states such as New York.J
New Jersey, Maryland andj
Pennsylvania.
My advice to new students from
up North: don't change! Northern
kids are fun, outgoing and most are;
very open minded. That combina-J
tion will make a kid popular on any!

Fraternities and sororities have
endured the reputation of being
rowdy groups of individuals whose
only purpose is to drink and party
because of the date rapes and binge
drinking at keg parties that have
occurred in fraternity houses.
ECU, as a university, has had the
same problem with a negative repu-
tation since Playboy published its
list of top party schools in 1987.
ECU was on the list.
The reputation of an organiza-
tion is not always accurate because
fraternities and sororities, like ECU,
offer more than just a good time.
"I think lately we have gotten
out of the 'Animal I louse' stigma
said Jason Forrest, president of Pi
Kappa Phi. "In order to stay around,
we had to change our actions in the
eyes of the University
Fraternities and sororities at
ECU, such as Omicron Delta
Kappa, have worked to put more
focus on academics and service in
addition to socialization.
"We look for people who are
active on campus and in the com-
munity said Overrun Harper,
Omicron Delta Kappa president.
This change in the focus of activ-
ities has attracted students that
might not have otherwise joined if
the party image was still prevalent.
"I want to rush a sorority said
Danielle McQueen, freshman. "I
think the sisterhood is a nice way to
help other people
"lraternities and sororities give
students discipline and competition
among themselves because they
have to maintain a certain CiPA to
get in and stay in said Alfrcda
Leathers, senior.
Presently, there are three types of
fraternities available to students. One
of these is the academic fraternities.
Academic fraternities hold high stan-
dards in scholastic, personal, service
and co-curricular endeavors.
One academic service fraternity
is Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK). It
currently has both student and non-
student members, including
Chancellor Kit hard Eakins, Dean
Ron Speier and the mayor of
Creenville, Nancy Jenkins.
Students must have junior or senior
vice fraternity, for undergraduate
and graduate students.
"We focus on four fields of ser-
vice said Trey Perry, Alpha Phi
Omega (AI'O) president. "They
include campus, community,
national and fraternal

female and 30 percent male, APO is

standing and a ,V0 CJI'A in order to
be nominated to join. Each year,
ODK recognizes three faculty and

serve as student advocates and sup-
ports the American Cancer
Society's Relay for Life.
"We try to do community service
ourselves Harper said. "We did a
campus fixid drive last year and this
year we will try again by maybe
sponsoring a family at Christmas
Service fraternities and sororities
focus on providing assistance tothe
community through volunteer
work.

the Phillipines and are looking into

Cheerleading
tryouts end
New cheering squad
begins working together

ST H- tt HI I l:n
For a certain type of person, other-
wise known as a cheerleader, per-
forming fast-paced, exciting rou-
tines interspersed with bouts of
tumbling and gymnastics sounds
like the perfect way to spend a
Saturday afternoon.
Anxious students awaited their
chance to prove they could be a
strong member of the ECU cheer-
leading squad on Sunday, Aug. 29.
There were only 29 spots on the
team to be filled.
Corey Willard, an environmental
science major from Chocowinity,
NG, tried out for a position on the
team. Although he was on the team
last year, he is not guaranteed a spot
this year.
"You have to try out every
year Willard said. "At the end of
this vear, we'll have summer try-
outs. If we make it, we'll be on the
team next year
There is a considerable amount
of skill and strength involved in
cheerleading.
Cheerleaders embody school spirit

"We have strength conditioning
for the men, and we run three miles
a day Willard said. "The guys
have to take weight tests, and you
have to be able to 'clean' at least
185 lbs push-press 155 lbs. and
one-arm press 75 lbs
More than just strength is
required to be a cheerleader, you
also have to be a certain kind of per-
son.
"You've got to have an outgoing
personality Willard said. "You
need to be able to get along with
other people
Although the workouts arc-
intense and there is a push for peak
performance in front of a crowd,
people still try out for spots on the
squad.
"I think cheerleading is fun�
something to do said Craig
Chicne, a first-timer at the cheer-
leading tryouts from N.J. "Why

New fraternity formed for band members
Kappa Kappa Psi
born in school of music
N.WCV WllKKI. KR
SWtV UIITEI
A new fraternity specifically tailored
to fit the needs of music students is
in its beginning stages. These music
students have joined together to col-
onize a fraternity�Kappa Kappa Psi.
Kappa Kappa Psi is a national
honor fraternity for band members,
and is a service organization to sup-
port the band programs at the uni-
versity
"By bringing the fraternity to
ECU, we will help to diversify the
School of Music by presenting stu-
dents with the option of serving the
people and the music they love in a
laid-back, brotherly environment
said Danny Wunker, a colonizing
member and sophomore at BCtL
Until a beginning fraternity or
sorority reaches active chapter sta-
tus, they are referred to as a colony,
and therefore, all of the members are
colonizing members instead of
brothers or sisters.
Most students have probably
"We want to give
something bark to the
band programs and the
School of Music.
Kate Adams
Secretary
never considered what goes into the
formation of an organization like
this, and it is much more involved
than one would think.
Becoming a chapter of Kappa
Kappa Psi, or any fraternity,
involves hard work and dedication
from the founding members. To
obtain active chapter status with
Kappa Kappa Psi, the group must
go through a colonization period.
This is a probationary time during
which the group keeps in close
contact with the national organiza-
tion and functions as a chapter to
prove its effectiveness in providing
a worthwhile organization and ser-
vice to the band programs.
The group must complete the
colonization process within two
semesters. The probationary peri-
od involves a lot of contact
between the colony and its advis-
ing chapter, which is the colony's
best possible resource.
At this stage in its development.
Kappa Kappa Psi is a co-ed organi-
zation, but it has a sister sorority,
Tau Beta Sigma.
"We wanted to start a band
fraternity, and wc wanted
something co-cd and also more
open to non-music majors
said Emily Hook, vice-presi-
dent and a sophomore at ECU.
In addition to serving the
bands during the probationary
period, the colony must also
attend convention, submit
monthly reports to the national
organization, provide records of
the program's progress and host
visits from representatives of
the National Organization.
"It seems like a lot of work,
but it's worth it said Kate
Adams, secretary and sopho-
more at ECU. "We want to
give something back to the
band programs and the School
of Music, and help them to pro-
vide us, and future students,
with more opportunities

Leigh Anne Potter from
Greenville, lias always wanted the
life of an ECU cheerleader. The
practices will never phase her,
though, because of the promised
glory of game day.
"I've been here all my life
Potter said. "I'd love to dress up in
those little uniforms. It would be
awesome to be a cheerleader and
get in front of a huge crowd. It'd be
a huge rush
Although cheerleading takes up
a considerable amount of time
between practices, strength train-
ing, running and games, many of
the team hopefuls were undaunt-
ed.
"When we go on away games,
we take our books and study
Willard said.
During football games, the 29
who make up the new squad will
be the ones screaming for the team
regardless of ECU's performance
in the game so far.
Brenda I loehn, a judge for the
team, was looking for "confidence,
smile and overall crowd appeal
These characteristics, as well as
personality, strength and skill, will
carry the squad through another
season at ECU.

When word reaches two elderly
best friends that someone in their
tiny Irish village has won the
national lottery, they go to great
lengths to find the winner so they
can share the wealth. When they
find the "lucky" winner, Ned
Devine, they find he has died of
shock upon discovering his win. Not
wanting the money to go to waste,
the village enters a pact to pretend
Ned is still alive by having another
man pose as him, and then to
divide the money between them.

Tom Welles, private eye, is hired by a wealthy widow
whose well-known husband passed away recently.
She has found a reel of 8mm film in a safe. On the
film is the cruel slaughter of a young girl, who
obviously does not pretend or act -a snuff-movie.
Welles takes up the investigation, which leads him to
the girl's mother and from there to Hollywood, into
the office of a porn-flick producer. Welles's rising
obsession to solve the case also carries him away
from his wife and new-born daughter. But when
names are finally at hand, Welles suddenly finds
himself on ice much thinner than he planned.

After weeks of practice and
months of anticipation, ECU final-
ly played football Saturday. The
Pirates answered all questions and
put to rest all concerns with a 30-23
victory over West Virginia.
David (Jarrard's one yard touch-
down run with 56 seconds remain-
ing gave ECU only its second win
over the Mountaineers. It capped a
chain of events in the final three
minutes that secured the win for
the Pirates.
With just under three minutes
remaining, West Virginia faced a
second and nine, deep in their own
territory and clinging. ECU line-
backer JefT Kerr came up the mid-
dle and sacked Bulger for a loss of
ten. On third and 19, Bulger's pass
to Carlos Osegueda fell incomplete,
forcing West Virginia to punt. Mark
Fazzolori's punt was taken by Keith
Stokes and returned to the ECU 43
yard line.
After two carries by Jamie
Wilson, the Pirates had a first and
10 at the West Virginia 41 yard line.
Garrard was forced out of the pock-
et and rumbled 30 yards to the West
Virginia 11.
After a Wilson run went
nowhere, the Greenville native got
the ball again and tore off an 11 yard
run that put the Pirates on the goal
line, (larrard scored and when
ECU's John Williamson intercept-
ed a Bulger pass on the ensuing
possession, the Pirates won 30-23.

Pirates won their second straight
game in Charlotte. Jamie Wilson
ran for a career-high 183 yards on 20
carries. Wilson also scored a touch-
down in the third quarter.
"Everything was just going my
way today Wilson said. "I went
out and was concentrating on get-
ting everything together and holes
just started opening up
he Pirates rushed for a total of
327 yards on 48 carries. ECU' aver-
aged only 150.7 yards per game on
the ground in 1998.
"Everyone worked really hard
on the rushing game in the
offseason, and it made it fun
coaching these kids today
Logan said.
Redshirt freshman Kevin
Miller hit three field goals and
nailed his only extra point
attempt. ECU only hit 11 field
goals in 1998.
"The guys backing me up
did a great job Miller said.
" Ryan Luckadoo) is playing
with a broken toe and Nick
Crabtreel got it down for me
every time. When those guys
get their jobs done, there is no
reason why I should not make
every kick
It was a Miller field goal in
the first quarter with 48 sec-
onds left that opened the scor-
ing. On ECU's second posses-
sion, Wilson fumbled on the
WVU 14. After a WVU punt,
the Pirates drove 71 yards to
the WVU 20 where Miller
nailed his first field goal.
"To win a game against
West Virginia ana" Don
Neien is a humbling expe-
rience, "
Steve Logan
ECU Head Coach
The Mountaineers got the
ball and showed why their
passing game is so feared.
Bulger connected on seven
passes including one for a
touchdown to Anthony
Green. Bulger led the
Mountaineers on an 80 yard
drive on only ten plays in four
and a half minutes.
On the next possession,
Logan made a change at quar-
terback. 1'rcshman Richard
Alston stepped in and drove
the Pirates 54 yards. Alston
gained 11 yards rushing and com-
pleted two of three passes on the 10
play drive. The drive ended when
Miller Ixioted his second field goal
of the afternoon, this one from 42
yawls away.
After the two teams exchanged
punts, the Mountaineers took over
on their own 20 yard line. Bulger
completed four passes and moved
the Mountaineers to the ECU 29
yard line. Bulger was then picked
off by Kevin Monroe at the ECU
two yard line.
Garrard took over and marched
the Pirates 98 yards. Garrard com-
pleted three passes and rushed for
ten yards, Wilson rushed for 43

yards and Garrard scored from the
one with 13 seconds left in the half.
On only nine plays, the Pirates
had driven 98 yards on a defense
that returned eight starters, and
they had done it in under three
minutes. The Pirates went into
halftiilie up 12-7.
In the third quarter, the Pirates
special teams made their first and
biggest mistake. WVU's K.C.
Shiller came in unblocked and
blocked an Andrew Bayes punt.
The Mountaineers recovered on
the ECU 13. The Pirates held
WVU to a field goal, and ECU led
12-10.
Garrard then led ECU on a (2
yard touchdown drive capped by a
Wilson touchdown.
WVU answered with a drive of
60 yards on 10 plays ending with an
Avon Cobourne touchdown from
one yard out.
On the next ECU possession.
Miller nailed a 43 yard field goal
and ECU went up 22-17.
In the fourth quarter, after a
Garrard interception, the
Mountaineers got the ball on the
EC I' 25. After a fourth down con-
version, Bulger passed for a touch-
down and W'U led 23-22.
'This is a big win for this team
and the program said Jeff Kerr,
ECU linebacker. "We have Duke
next weekend and nine more
games after that. It is a long season
to start thinking about what you
have done. After a win like this, you

Seifert names
Beuerlein starter, cuts roster
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)-Steve
Beuerlcin's reward for continued
steady but unflashy play was being
named the Carolina Panthers'
starting quarterback Sunday.
"Me understands and has a feel
for what we're doing said coach
George Seifert, who chose
Beuerlein from a four-way battle
that began at training camp in late
July.
A 12-year NFL veteran,
Beuerlein started the final 12
games of the 1998 season but faced
several challenges this year. The
most prominent one came from
Jeff Lewis, who was acquired in
the offseason in the hopes he
would blossom into Carolina's
quarterback of the future.
But Lewis was unable to per-
form impressively enough to
unseat Beuerlein, and neither
were Steve Bono, a 15-year veter-
an signed in the offseason, or
Dameyune Craig, who was coming
off a record-setting season in NFL
Europe.
Seifert will keep all four quar-
terbacks on the roster, but for now
"He's played in the league,
and he demands the respect of
his teammates and his coaches
George Seifert
Head coach
at least, the starter remains
Beuerlein, who completed 68 per-
cent of his passes in the exhibition
season. Beuerlein was not inter-
cepted in any of the four games,
but he also threw only one touch-
down pass.
Seifert, however, said his deci-
sion wasn't based solely on num-
bers.
"He's played in the league, and
he demands the respect of his
teammates and his coaches
Seifert said.
Beuerlein will be targeted to
get at least 70 percent of the snaps
in practice this week as Carolina
prepares for its opener Sunday in
New Orleans against the Saints.
Seifert said he had not decided
on the backup rotation behind
Beuerlein.
The decision on a starting quar-
terback came on the same day
Carolina made several transactions
to get down to the NFL-mandated
limit of 53 players on its active ros-
ter.
The Panthers waived 10 play-
ers, traded reserve tightend
Luther Broughton and placed
reserve cornerback Leonard
Wheeler on injured reserve with a
knee injury.
OPINION
STEPHEN
SCHRAMM
Pirates have
come long way
Kicking, rushing
aw greatly improved
S I KI'IIKS SCIIKAMM
spouts union
There must be something in the
Mecklenburg county water that
makes ECU invincible. For the
second time in four years, the
Pirates get a huge win on the turf at
Ericsson Stadium.
The 30-23 win over West
Virginia on Saturday told us many
things about the 1999 Pirates.
Improvements in the kicking
game, rush offense and a new
defense, give hints as to what may
become of this team in the weeks
ahead.
In 1998, one major weakness in
the Pirates game was the lack of
consistency from their kickers.
Andrew Bayes and Brantlcy Rivi
combined to hit 11 field goals
last season. On Saturday, redsh
freshman, Kevin Miller hit th
field goals. In years past, Ste
Logan has gotten a reputation as
bit of a gambler on fourth downs.
His willingness to go for it was, in
part, due to a lack of trust in hte
kicking game.
Against WVU, when the Pirates
got the ball inside Mountaineer tes-
ritory, Logan was able to call upon
Miller to hit field goals that the
Pirates would not have been able to
hit in the past. Two of Miller's kicks
were from over forty yards out.
Another area of drastic improve-
ment was the running game. Jamie
Wilson, racked up a career-high
183 yards and the Pirates ran ft
total of 327 yards. The Pirates a
aged 150.7 yards per game in 1

Big Ten

(AP)�The first week of the sea-
' son is over and football's Big Ten is
looking pretty good. The league's
teams are 9-3 in nonconference
play so far.

mighty Nebraska 42-7.
Also, Penn State crushed Akron

against Arkansas State, Miami, Ohio
downed Northwestern 28-3,
Minnesota defeated Ohio IT. 33-7,
Wisconsin buried Murray State 49-10
and Indiana got by Ball State 21-9.
In Ann Arbor, tailback Anthony
Thdmas scored from a yard out with
1:38 left for the Wolverines' victory.
"They hurt themselves with
penalties in the end, and we took
advantage of it said Lloyd Can,
Michigan coach, "It was as hard a hit-

WVTI's Jamie Bulger completed

Vols use second-quarter
burst to down Wyoming
KNOXVILLE, Tcnn. (AP) � No.
3 Tennessee didn't play like the
defending national champions for
much of the game against
Wyoming, only for about half of one
quarter.
But, it was a devastating seven
and a half minutes for the
Wyoming.
The Volunteers put four touch-
downs on the board late in the sec-
ond quarter to down the Cowboys
42-17 Saturday.
"The second quarter seemed to
last two and a half hours said
Dana Dimel, Wyoming coach.
The Cowboys led 10-7 when the
Vols broke loose. A 32-yard touch-
down by Jamal Lewis, two Tee
Martin-to-Cedrick Wilson touch-
down passes and a defensive touch-
down by linebacker Eric
Westmoreland were squeezed into
the waning minutes of the first half.
And even though Wyoming
played the Vols even the second
half, they could never recover.
"You improve the most between
the first game and the second game,
and obviously with the game we've
got coming up we're going to have
to do that said Tennessee coach
Phillip Fulnier, whose team's next
game is in two weeks against
Florida in Gainesville. "I think it
was probably real good for us to
have to fight into the fourth quar-
ter Fulmer said. "That will pay
dividends for us later on
Lewis returned from the knee
injury that ended his '98 season to
score three touchdowns and gain
159 yards in 25 carries. He also fum
bled twice.
Fulmer said he gave Lewis a
game ball and told him three
things: welcome back, good game,
"and carry it around for the next
couple of days
Martin hit Wilson with scoring
tosses of 55 and 16 yards, plus a 64-
yarder that set up Lewis' last score
with just 22 seconds left to play.
The Tennessee defense set a
school record with 13 sacks for a
minus 82 yards.
The Cowboys were hampered
by an injury to starting quarterback
Jay Stoner, who went out with the
score 21-10 in Tennessee's favor.
Stoner said he injured his left
shoulder. He said after the game he
did not think it was too serious.
Dimel said it's not yet known how
long Stoner will be out. Tennessee
piled up 522 total yards, but turned
the ball over three times. The Vols
defense held its own except for two
scoring drives by the Cowboys,
including a 98-yard, 12-play drive
that led to the Cowboy's final
points.
The 13 sacks bested the previ-
ous record of eight, accomplished
three times. "I don't think it was
the defensive line as much as it was
the whole defense said Will
Overstreet, defensive end, who had
three of the sacks. "We've been
talking about getting all of our jobs
done all week
Martin was 14 of 21 for 264
yards, with the two TDs and no
interceptions. Wilson had seven
catches for 183 yards.
"We did pretty good in the pass-
ing game said Tee Martin. "I real-
ly didn't know what to expect until
we played. The guys were getting
open. We had some minor struggles
in pass protection, but it was pretty
good as far as I could see
Wyoming led 10-7 early in the
second quarter when the
Volunteers defense took over the
game for a time.
The Cowboys had minus-21
yards and two turnovers during the
decisive four-touchdown stretch by
the Vols, including the fumble thar
Westmoreland ran in from 18 yards.
Stoner was 6 of 9 for 65 yards
before being injured. Matt
Swanson came in and finished 16 of
21 for 130 yards, with a touchdown
and two interceptions.
Tommy Nash, brother of former
Tennessee receiver Marcus Nash,
led the Cowboys with four catches
for 41 yards. The Cowboys were
held to eight net yards rushing.
Georgia's Edwards has electrifying debut
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) � Tcrrenee
Kdwards didn't seem all that sur-
prised when his first college game
turned out to be one of the greatest
performances ever for a Georgia
receiver. Neither did anyone else,
for that matter.
Before ever playing a game,
Bulldogs coach Jim Donnan already
was comparing his super freshman
to former Florida great Jacqucz
Green. Kdwards' teammates have
gotten a firsthand look at his unique
combination of speed and strength
in practice. And Edwards has long
set his sights on following the path
set by his older brother, Robert.
"There's been pressure my
whole life with Robert as my big
brother said the younger
Edwards. "It's a little bothersome,
but not so much that is makes me
drop a pass
With big brother looking on
Saturday night, Edwards made an
electrifying debut, catching 10
passes for 1 yards and two long
touchdowns as No. 12 Georgia
rolled over Utah State 38-7 in the
season opener.
Robert Edwards, the former
Georgia running back who had a
superb rookie season with the
Patriots, suffered a career-threaten-
ing knee injury in February while
playing flag football. He bought a
home in Athens a few months ago
and is doing his rehabilitation on
campus.
"I think he was injured so he
could be sent here to watch over
me Terrence Edwards said. "He
was giving me tips as the game was
going on. I'm blessed to have a big
brother watching over me
The Bulldogs are blessed to
have a receiver like Edwards, who
stepped right in when expected
starter Michael Greer was held out
of the game because of lingering
headaches.
"The only thing close to having
Robert Edwards out there
Donnan said, "is having his brother
out there
Terrence was supposed to play
at Georgia last year, but he didn't
receive a qualifying score on his col-
lege entrance exam soon enough to
enroll for the fall semester. He
entered school in January, playing
on the basketball team and looking
forward to getting back on the grid-
iron.
