Thm drug offer
better treatments
Carolyn Herold
staff writer
There are now new drugs on
the market to help combat the flu.
These Synthetic Anti-Viral Drugs
are a Neuraminidase Inhibitor,
nasal spray, Flumadine and
Amantadine.
The nasal spray works by
keeping infected cells from
attacking healthy cells. This med-
ication is a non-preventative
method of treatment. It will
reduce the duration of your symp-
toms by approximately a day. This
has proven to be the least effec-
tive method of treatment.
Amantadine and Flumadine
are slightly more effective. They
have to be administered within 24
to 48 hours from the onset of flu-
like symptoms. The problem with
this is that most people do not
know they have the flu until after
the time when you can get the
shot. These drugs have the same
duration and severity reducing
effects that the nasal spray does.
Flumadine may help the elderly
from developing pneumonia as a
complication from the flu.
Flumadine also builds the anti-
bodies used to combat further flu
infection in two to four weeks.
The flu vaccine seems to be
the most effective treatment
against the flu.
Fifteen to 20 thousand people
(mostly the elderly and the chron-
ically ill) die each year from the
flu. In colleges, a flu epidemic can
spread to up to twenty percent of
the population.
"If you have these symptoms,
you should stay home, get
plenty of rest, drink plenty
of fluids and take Tylenol
for the fever
Dr. Christopher Ofil
Assistant professor at the School ol Medicine
While the flu season runs from
January to February, it is often
confused with the common cold.
Flu symptoms include a high
fever (102-104 degrees), which
persists for three to four days,
headaches that are often severe,
general aches and pains, fatigue,
weakness, chest discomfort,
cough and occasionally a stuffy
nose, sneezing and a sore throat.
"If you have these symptoms,
you should stay home, get plenty
of rest, drink plenty of fluids and
take Tylenol for the fever said
Dr. Christopher Ohl, assistant pro-
fessor at the School of Medicine.
The chronically ill, elderly,
health workers, police officers,
firemen, teachers and students are
urged to get a yearlyTlu shot The
vaccine is relatively painless (it
hurts much less than a tetanus
shot), and there are no major side
effects.
Contrary to popular belief, one
cannot get sick from the flu vac-
cine. The shot is a prevcntative
measure against the flu and pro-
vides a 70 percent protection rate.
The vaccine takes a little longer
to produce antibodies (two to four
weeks), but that is not a problem
since the flu shot is available in
October.
The Student Health Center
will be giving out the flu vaccine in
the Wright Place all day on
November 3 and 4. It will be given
to all students, faculty and staff, at
a cost of $5.
"1 think students should get a
vaccine unless they can afford to
miss about ten days-ofclass said
Jolene Jernigan, director of Clinical
Affairs, Student Health Center.

University grad enters Greenville mayoral race
Hilts faces incumbent
in November election
Phillip Gilfus
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
Kerna Hilts, a 1993 ECU graduate,
is a Greenville mayoral candidate
for this November's election. Her
campaign is based on strengthen-
ing the relationship between the
University and the city.
The candidate, who filed on
July 14 at the Pitt County Board of
Elections, thinks that it is time the
city began keeping pace with
ECU's growth.
"The school is growing beyond
the city Hilts said. "The city
should grow with the University
Hilt believes that Greenville did
not incorporate ECU's growth in its
city planning.
"Imagine how parking and traf-
fic will be in town when 8,000 stu-
dent are added Hilts said.
Hilts is also concerned that the
city is losing valuable talent since
students come to ECU, study for
five years and then leave.
"We need to entice the talent
and keep it here Hilts said.
"The students are citizens of
Greenville, they should be treat-
ed as such. The city loves to have
the University here, but they need
to provide jobs and adequate hous-
ing for them. Don't treat students
as a nuisance
Hilts described the role of a
mayor as "an administrator, pro-
moter for the city and a good listen-
er
Kerna Hilts graduated from ECU in 1993

She graduated from ECU with a
communications degree in journal-
ism and a minor in English. She
then became a reporter at the Daily
Advance in Elizabeth City and also
worked as a freelance writer.
Having planned on going to law
school this fall, Hilts decided to run
for mayor when she realized that
changes were needed in
Greenville.
"This is a crucial time for the
city Hilts said.
If elected, Hilts plans on going
to law school after one or two terms.
"I don't plan on becoming a
career politician
The only other registered candi-
date is the current mayor, Nancy
Jenkins. She has served as mayor
for almost 10 years and plans to run
for her sixth two-year term.
"This will be the time when
we're finishing up various projects
in the city Jenkins said.
Jenkins, a UNC-Chapel Hill
graduate, did some post-graduate
work at ECU. Her first elected
position was on the Greenville
school board, where she later
became chairperson. She ran
unopposed for mayor in 1997.
"I've been involved in every
facet of Greenville for the last 30
years Jenkins said.
Both candidates encourage
ECU students to vote on Nov. 2.
"You only have to live here for
30 days to be eligible to register to
vote Hilts said. "It takes five
minutes of your time, and you can
change a lot. Students think it is a
difficult process to register but it's
not Hilts said.

Lawyers moonlight on stage,
GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - By
day, the men and women of Weld
County's legal community wear
suits and ties, speaking big, Latin
words with eloquence before
judge and jury.
At night, they'll break into
song, play crotchety old men,
become Russian negotiators or
prance around on stage, hoping for
a laugh.
As different as their day and
night jobs may seem, some say
there are many similarities
between performing in court as a

"Once I got back into theater, I
once again realized to be a good
attorney I had to simplify and had
to communicate in a way to keep
people's attention Dominguez
said.

Deputy District Attorney Ken
Storck, however, said his acting
helped him stop mumbling, some-
thing he's sure that many court �
reporters are glad of. "Basically,
throughout life, I've been a pretty
shy person Storck said.
"With the acting experience,
you learn to speak clearly. Not that
I'd be acting in front of a jury, but
perhaps I can emphasize things
more or use dramatic pauses
But don't get these attorneys
wrong. Acting also is fun and one
of the greatest ways to de-stress
from the ugliness of the criminal
element in the court system.
"It's fun to attempt to portray a
character in a believable and inter-

recently finished the Encore

meeting of the minds with his
rebellious daughter.

Indiana U.�Tracy Guthrie battled
nine years to hear the news she
received this summer.
After a series of legal delays and
contradictory rulings by lower
courts, the Indiana Supreme Court
decided she would tell her story to
a jury.
The unanimous July 12 decision
allows Guthrie to go forward with
her lawsuit against the IU chapter
of Delta Tau Delta, and may bring
changes and set legal precedents
that affect local Delta members, fra-
ternities nationwide and any pri-
vate property owners.
Guthrie was an 18-year-old
freshman when she was sexually
assaulted by Joseph P. Motz during
a Homecoming party at the frater-
nity Oct. 14, 1990. She was known
then as Tracy Johnson; she has
since married.
In her first public interview
about the sexual assault and law-
suit, Guthrie said late Wednesday
evening her goal with the litigation
is and has always been to seek jus-
tice and a public apology for the
actions of Motz and the fraternity.
She filed suit after being dissatis-
fied with the plea bargain Motz
received; he pleaded guilty to sexu-
al battery and served a year of
house arrest
She said the entire process left
her feeling powerless. "I just want-
ed control over something said
Ihicy Guthrie. "I would never pur-
sue this for money. Initially, all I
wanted was an apology and for the
members to stand up and be
responsible men. If there is any
financial gain, it will go to a rape cri-
sis fund
Guthrie added that she has noth-
ing against the Greek system. She
was in Zeta Tau Alpha, and her hus-
band was in Pi Kappa Alpha while
they attended IU.
Guthrie arrived at 10 p.m. Oct.
13, 1990 at the Deltas'
Homecoming party with some of
her friends. At midnight, she
encountered Motz, an acquaintance
she worked with in a department
store the previous summer. She and
her friends were separated and
eventually they left without her.
Motz, a former Deltas vice-presi-
dent, was staying at the house dur-
ing his visit and offered to drive her
home but only after he sobered up.
They waited together in a room
upstairs listening to music, where
they both consumed some hard
liquor and talked. At about 3:30
a.m, Guthrie again got up and
searched through the house for a
ride. After she was unsuccessful,
Motz once again offered to take her
home. But soon after, he locked the
two of them in the room and then
sexually assaulted her.
Guthrie eventually made it back
to her dorm where she was comfort-
ed by friends who urged her to
report the crime to the IU Police
Department She said after report-
ing the assault, the fraternity began
intimidating and harassing her.
She said the intimidation almost
made her leave IU.
Colorado State U.�Three days
after hundreds of celebratory
Colorado State University students
and fans were teargassed at Mile
High Stadium, Denver Police con-
tinue to ardendy defend their use
of force, saying fans in CSU's stu-
dent section were unruly and "rant-
ing and raving
In the seconds following CSU's
surprise victory over the 14th-
ranked University of Colorado,
Denver police officers, donning riot
gear, unleashed tear gas on the pre-
dominantly student crowd in the
northeast section of the stadium.
Fans sitting up to 20 rows back
were clinging to one another in
agony and collapsing in the aisles.
Police also sprayed a group of hud-
dling cheerleaders and CSU band
members who were playing the
fight song.
Pat Conner, a sophomore CSU
band member, said he barely made
it through the second run of the
fight song when the tear gas hit
htm. "People in front of me started
putting their instruments down and
coughing. I finished the song and
that's when the gas hit me said
Conners. "The police were all
buddy-buddy and patting each
other on the back
It was mandatory for band mem-
bers to attend the game and sit in
the student section.
Denver Police Det. Mary
Thomas said, Monday in hindsight,
the responding officers acted
appropriately. An internal "routine"
investigation is planned this week,
she said.
Fifteen CSU students were
arrested. The officers were trying
to prevent overzealous students
from rushing the field.
But many of the angry CSU stu-
dents and fans said they were just
trying to leave the game and had no
intention of tearing down the goal
posts when they were sprayed.
Six people were trying to climb
the fence when the tear gas was
unleashed, police reports stated.
The Associated Students of
CSU and the Collegian received
dozens of letters from angry stu-
t
dents, alumni and community
members. Some students, who
wished to remain anonymous, said
on Monday that they were looking
into lodging official complaints
with the Denver Police
Department
ASCSU Student President Eric
Berglund, who was teargassed sit-
ting in the ASCSU section on the
northeast side, vowed Monday to
defend the injured students and
CSU fans. Berglund plans to launch
a letter-writing campaign to Denver
Mayor Wellington Webb and the
Denver Police Department about
how the SWAT officers responded.
CSU Vice President for Student
Affairs Keith Miser agreed. The
police should have dealt directly
with the students causing the prob-
lems instead of spraying the whole
crowd, said Miser.
Mayor Webb plans on meeting
with representatives from CU and
CSU this week Next year, tailgat-
ing may be banned and there may
be no alcohol available at the game.

Successful weight
loss surgery introduced
Gastric banding
involves few risks
Tkkka Stkisbkiskk
SIUI- ttHITKK
The ECU School of Medicine is
currently one of a few I'S medical
centers involved in the FDA-
approved phase II clinical testing of
the adjustable gastric band, a mea-
sure used to combat morbid obesity.
In the gastric banding procedure,
a small band is placed around the
top portion of the stomach to create
a small pouch which can hold about
1-1.5 ounces of food. The patient
feels full for several hours because
the pouch empties slowly, hopefully
preventing the urge to eat between
meals.
"It's really an attempt to find a
way to restrict what a person can
eat said Dr. Kenneth MacDonald,
chief of gastrointestinal surgery and
primary researcher for the testing at
RCU. "This allows us to fine-tune
the amount a person eats, so they are
comfortable but can take in only a
limited amount of calories each
day
Typically, "morbidly obese"
refers to those people who are at
least 100 pounds overweight or have
a body mass index of greater than 40.
One aspect of the procedure that
is being heavily tested is the imple-
mentation of the gastric band by
means of laproscopic surgery. In this
method, the surgeon can see what
they are doing by looking at a V
monitor that is hooked up to a slen-
der telescope and a tiny video cam-
era.
These can go through a pencil-
sized "portal" inside of the stomach.
Other ports are placed around the
stomach wall through which long
thin instruments do the actual
surgery.
"The hands of the surgeon
never go in the belly MacDonald
said. "This type of surgery avoids a
big incision, which is especially good
for obese people who are more
prone to infections after invasive
surgeries
Other benefits of laproscopic
surgery include quicker recovery,
shorter hospital stays and less dis-
comfort for the patient.
There have Ijcen few risks asso-
ciated with gastric banding.
"It can be a little bit of a tricky
operation MacDonald said. "The
surgeons need to be carefully
trained in laproscopy because injury
to the esophagus and those areas can
be dangerous MacDonald said.
During the initial testing of the
band, band-slippage was a problem
for some patients. The back wall of
the stomach would slide up and
cover the band. Techniques have
been changed since, and band-slip-
page is no longer a real threat.
Only two patients have under-
gone the surgery at ECU.
"We've had about 50 inquiries
about the procedure, as far as e-
mails and calls said Shirley Pekala,
RN and study coordinator for this
testing. "There are certain eligibility
requirements that must be met for
us to consider patients. They must
be at least 100 pounds overweight;
have had a history of obesity for at
least five years; be between the ages
of 18 and 60; and have a record of
failed diets or other weight loss tech-
niques
"ECU was chosen because we
were having good results
MacDonald said. "Our patients
have done as well or better, with
fewer complications than other
places. The FDA was impressed
with our program
Other medical centers that are
participating in this study include
the University of Colorado, the
Medical College of Virginia,
Louisiana State University and the
Alvarado Center for Surgical Weight
Control in San Diego.

installed also.
To utilize RezNet, students
must purchase Ethernet, the com-
puter hardware for RezNet This
package includes an Ethernet net-
work card and cable. Their prices
range from $20-$12Q, depending on
the quality, installment and type of
computer it is designed for. The
Ethernet hardware can be found at
Dowdy Student Stores, or at other
stores in the community, including
Office Depot or Staples.
Students must then install the
Ethernet hardware and configure
their computers. Complete instruc-
tions and trouble-shooting guides
are available on the Reznct web
page at
http:my.housing.ecu.educonnect.
After installing the hardware,
students must next submit an
online application, which is found
at the same web site. When this is
completed, CIS activates the
Ethernet port located in the stu-
dent's room.
Connections are now done on
Wednesdays only. Applications
must be submitted by 12 p.m. on
Tuesday to be connected the fol-
lowing day. Otherwise, the connec-
tion process will take a week.
Only a few problems have been
discovered with RezNet.
The majority of the student
complaints reported are usually
problems due to an incorrect set-up
of the program. Students can either
go to the troubleshooting guide or
call the ECU help line at 328-4133.
Another problem is that the resi-
dent computer consultants
(RCC's), are understaffed. The
RCC's, consisting of Lucier and
four students, tend to stay very
busy. When problems do arise, it
may take a little while to receive
help. The RezNet help line pro-
vides immediate assistance, but e-
mailing a request for help take two
days to receive a response.
With 70-80 percent of students
connected, performance may drop
due to increased usage.
"We are looking to upgrade to
match the increased level of use
Lucier said. "We still have room to
grow
RezNet has many advantages.
The program is five times faster
than a regular modem, and it
requires no logins or passwords. It
does not tie up the phone lines,
unlike regular modems, so there are
no busy signals or the constant has-
sle of getting kicked off line.
Lucier is optimistic about
RezNet's future.
"It's not been easy, but it's a
challenge we look forward to
Lucier said.

Opening weekend at Oowdy-Ficklen Stadium is upon us, and things
already look promising. With the way ECU played against West Virginia last
weekend in Charlotte, there is no reason Pirate fans can't expect another
stellar performance from the home team.
This is where fan participation comes in.
Pirate fans are notorious for showing up late to games, even major ones
against major ACC opponents such as the Duke Blue Devils. Without fans'
support, the Pirates have no real advantage to playing at home.
Cranted, things have improved over the last couple of years. There was
a time when the student side of the stadium was barely half full, and "Purple
Haze" began blaring out of the PA. system.
Speaking of entrances, the word on campus is that the Pirates will be
coming out to a new introduction beginning with the game this weekend,
which should give fans even more of a reason to arrive in the stadium early.
While many students have a great time tailgating with their friends before
the game, it is just as important to let our team know that we stand behind
them 100 percent. The Pirates have a realistic shot at going into the Sept. 25
home game against Miami with a 3-0 record. With an upset win over Miami,
the Pirates could possibly make it into the top 25 national rankings.
But first things first. A step in the right direction will come this weekend
with what should be a victory against Duke. While Coach Logan says he
believes the Blue Devils are a very good team, Duke will be just a tune-up
for tougher foes on the Pirate home schedule.
Again, this brings us back to the fans. For newcomers to ECU, students
live for Pirate football on the weekends and you should definitely make an
effort to come to an entite game and get an up-close look at what all the hype
is about.
For people nearing the end of their college careers, it is important to take
in as much as possible, including absorbing game day atmosphere from
beginning to end in Dowdy-Ficklcn Stadium. The point is, our team counts
on us to support them, from start to finish. If we aren't there to back our
team for the entire game, then we have no right to complain if they don't
live up to our expectations.
OPINION
iiHiBB
MCMAHON
Apathy runs deep in student body
A surreal truth has so wonderfully
revealed itself to me, and last
week's actions clarified this thought
with great precision. Sadly enough,
it took the writing of an article
about Yankees (it was meant to be a
joke, but evidently you guys didn't
get it) to bring this revelation to
light.
The thought that has motivated
my thinking and views upon this
campus is that for the most part the
student body, as well as some facul-
ty, would rather attack a negative,
than stand by a positive.
My "Yankee" article garnered
such a tremendous fire storm of
controversy that I can only con-
clude that this is the truth. The
general population of this school
saw the article as an unwarranted
attack against a group of people.
You responded by blasting my butt
with verbal assaults and threaten-
ing me with bodily harm. That ain't
cool, folks. After that I came to the
conclusion that writing about a neg-
ative is one of the only ways to have
yourself heard AND to also gain a
response.
The previous column I wrote
which I was extremely proud of,
didn't receive a single response.
For those that missed it, it was
about college students' civic
responsibility to the communities
that helped raise them. It stressed a
positive message but was quickly
dismissed. Sadly, that tells me that
when someone tries to enumerate a
positive thought or action, you take
it for granted, pass it away, and just
wait for the next insult to come
along so you can blast that, too.
But, guess what-that positive is still
there, sitting on its behind, waiting
for someone to pick it up, brush it
off and give it the support it needs.
It is high time that the student
body and faculty of this school start
standing up for causes that can ben-
efit our entire F.( III family. I credit
the administration immensely for
their efforts at diversification and
expansion. Contrary to what you
may believe, I value the diverse
atmosphere at this school (even the
Northerners). But, I take issue
with the fact diat the student body
is unable or unwilling to spend time
on something that is just, while tak-
ing time out to blast a something
perceived as unjust.
Prove me wrong ECU. I beg of
you to prove me wrong. Make me
into the ignorant bastard that you
all are convinced that I am. Stand
up for all that is good, not sit and
yell at someone because you
thought they insulted you.

Shut up and show school pride
For years now I've heard students
complain about problems at ECU. I
have listened to students bitch
about parking, bad professors, nasty
food and high prices. I have lis-
tened to criticisms about how other
schools are better, and how other
schools have this or that. Well, I am
sick and tired of it. I have a message
for all you whiny, snot-nosed losers:
Get over it you weak-minded
cretins and show some school
pride!
Let's probe this a bit deeper,
shall we? I low is one school better
than another? Is there something
that is being taught at Duke's
chemistry class that is so out of our
league that we could never handle
it? Does Wake Forest have med
students that are so much better
than ours? Does Harvard have
magic words in their English class-
es that our professors don't know
about? If we took an economics
professor from ECU and dropped
himher off at Stanford, would they
be intellectually beaten like a rent-
ed mule?
The answer is no! Surprise, our
professors are just as excellent as
professors at any other school in the
world. If you don't agree, then you
are wrong and senseless, and shame
on you for thinking so lowly of the
school you attend.
You have to look carefully at all
of the facts when you compare
schools.
Duke, Harvard, Wake Forest,
UNC-Chapel Hill, Yale and other
major schools have things going for
them that we can never have: time.
They were here before us and so
they were the ones to get the ball
rolling first. Maybe some had more
aggressive chancellors in the begin-
ning. If we had had Chancellor
F.akin from day one, this school
would be the size of Newark, N.J.
and we would have "Take one
leave one" trays filled with 20 dol-
lar bills at every cash register on
campus.
Most of the big schools are pri-
vate and receive large endowments,
lots of palm-greasing and more
research funding. But that only
helps out with graduate level pro-
grams. As basic undergraduate
courses, they are just like us.
The kids at Harvard learn the
same material as us, but they do so
sitting on oak seats while we sit on
plastic. Big deal. And even as far as
graduate courses go, most big
schools deal in big projects, while
someone has to work on the small
stuff. I may not go to Duke, but the
lab I do research in has everything I
need. I lack nothing! Screw Duke.
Big name schools have big-
named professors. So what. Not
every professor in the country
writes a book or invents gravity. But
you have to remember that these
professors are busy and they could-
n't teach if they had a gun to their
head. They leave their teaching to
half-wit grad students while they go
on book tours, 'IV interviews, the
golf course and two-year sabbaticals
in Vail and Sun Valley, while our
professors are dedicated and know
how to teach a subject.
What about all the other attrib-
utes? Parking: Yeah, parking here
bites. So drive earlier, take the bus,
ride your bike or do like I did and
buy a motorcycle. Have you ever
tried to park at UNC-Chapel Hill,
or Harvard? Their parking situa-
tions make ours look like we have
free valet service for every student.
The food: Yes, the food at ECU
sucks, it's true. I spend as little as I
can here, but that is not really
ECU'S fault�it's Aramark's.
They're on contract with ECU to
sell this expensive, over-cooked
garbage. But you would find the
same case at Duke. The food is ter-
rible, just like ours. Duke does have
Burger King in their student center,
but hey, at $22,000 per year, they
can afford it. That better be one
darn good Whopper for that price.
Tuition: Oet real crybabies.
Approximately $1,000 per semester
does n�t warrant an expensive �
school. You're getting a real bargain. -
If you sit back and look at all the -
services that are available for you, -
you're getting the best deal around.
We are one of the most inexpensive
schools in the country, so please
shut up and sign the check!
Sports: "They have better foot
ball and basketball teams stu-
dents cry. That may be true, but
hey, some schools are wading in
gravy and can afford such things.
But most schools that are really
known for their academics have
lousy football teams.
Look at Harvard, Yale and
Duke. Hundreds of millions of dol-
lars in research grants between 'em,
and all their football teams still .
suck. We could take them on even
on our worst day. Would you rather
go to a super duper school with a
crappy team, or a good school with
a good team? I have just as much !
fun as they do, get just as drunk,
and I spend just a bit less than they
do. (Suckers).
The list goes on and on. But it all
boils down to the same thing� you '
are at a great school that you should
be proud. I know I am.
I am working on my second
undergrad here at ECU, I am cur-
rently in graduate school and I hope
to enter the medical school here. If
I have any desire to go to another
school in the future, it will be for
the town that it's in because I hate
Greenville.
Still, a school is a school. So stop
wearing hats and shirts with other
school logos on them. Quit compar-
ing us to all the other schools in the
country. The grass is not always
greener on the other school's foot-
ball field. Show some school pride,
and please, first and foremost, stop
complaining!

OPINION
LETTER TO
EDITOR
Student suggests better etiquette
SGA should ask for student opinion
It's nice to know that I'm not para-
noid. I thought I was the only one
who noticed how rude the behavior
was getting on campus. The atmos-
phere on campus has turned not so
friendly.
Another thing that I've noticed
pn campus is that people don't have
�ny elevator etiquette. Let me
enlighten you. If you are standing
in the hall waiting for an elevator
and the doors open, let the people
on the elevator get off. That way,
you will have room to get on. DUH!
The last thing I have noticed on
campus that puzzles me are the
groups, clubs, organizations, etc.
that take the time to set up tables
outside of buildings, and require
two or three people to sit at these
tables and proceed to do nothing.
They spend their time talking to
each other or joking around with
people they already know as they
pass by.
So here's a tip: you behind the
table must make the first verbal
contact. If you're afraid of rejection
then you probably shouldn't le rep-
resenting your group.
Mary Edwards
I like democratic life. In fact, I
think life should be more democra-
tic. More specifically, I think that
ECU should be more democratic.
With an enrollment of 18,000 stu-
dents this semester, I can only
imagine the number of different
opinions walking around campus.
Let me get to the point�I don't
think that we, the students, have
enough�or�any say in the choices
made for the University. I don't
want to complain about the system,
I want to offer a solution.
I don't know a whole lot about
what SGA does. I do know that it is
a small body, elected by students,
representing all the students. I just
don't think it is an accurate repre-
sentation of the student opinion.
We already have online surveys
addressing current issues, but the
question is, does it have any impact
on University decisions? With the
recent improvements in the stu-
dent desktop, how difficult would it
be to create a link where each stu-
dent can cast a vote on important
issues?
I think SGA would be more
effective if they picked a list of top-
ics on a regular basis and posted
them on the web site for the stu-
dents to vote on. I'm not suggest-
ing the students have the last word
in decisions of the llnivcrsity, but I
think we do need to carry a little
weight, though. It's our money, any-
way, right?

NATURAL DISASTERS
J' Earthquake
Any sudden disturbance within
1 the Earth manifested at the surface
by a shaking of the ground. This
snaking, which accounts for the
destructiveness of an earthquake, is
caused by the passage of elastic
waves through the Earth's rocks.
These seismic waves are produced
'when some form of stored energy,
such as elastic strain.
Volcano
Any vent in the crust of the Earth
or other planet or satellite, from
.which issue molten rock, pyroclastic
debris, and steam. Volcanism (vul-
canism) is the name given to the
processes and phenomena associat-
ed with the surficial discharge of
such material from volcanoes, gey-
sers, and fumaroles.
Tsunami
Catastrophic ocean wave, usually
caused by a submarine earthquake
occurring less than 50 km (30 miles)
beneath the seafloor, with a magni-
tude greater than 6.5 on the Richter
scale. Underwater or coastal land-
slides or volcanic eruptions also may
cause a tsunami. The term tidal
wave is more frequently used for
such a wave, but it is a misnomer.
M
Hurricane
Hurricanes can cause widespread
destruction and human misery. An
average hurricane has tremendous
ehergy. In one day the energy
released is about 1.6 1,013 kilo-
watt-hours, or at least 8,000 times
more than the electrical power gen-
erated each day in the United
States.
Tornado
Violently rotating columns of air
extending from within a thunder-
cloud down to ground level.
Tornadoes vary in diameter from
tens of meters to nearly 2 km (1 mi),
with an average diameter of about
5l m (160 ft), it can become visible
wjien a condensation funnel made
ot water vapor (a funnel cloud)
farms in extreme low pressures, or
wjien the tornado lofts dust, dirt and
dejbris upward from the ground.

America is said to be a "melting
pot" of people from various
cultures. On ECU's campus,
there are 179 international
students from 62 different
countries. To cater to the
varied tastes of its resi-
dents, there are over 40
restaurants in Greenville
that offer authentic meals
from different parts of the
world such as Italy, Mexico,
Greece and Ghina.
Szechuan Garden, located
at 909 S. Evans St serves a
variety of Chinese cuisine pre-
pared szechuan style.
"Szechuan style me,ans the
meals are hotter and spicier than
other Chinese dishes said Jenny
Chan, manager.
Knowing that everyone does
not like spicy foods, Chan said
Szechuan Garden does prepare
milder dishes.
"We can't make everything
spicy Chan said.
According to Chan, Szechuan
Garden maintains its authentic-
taste by sticking to special sauces
and recipes as well as employing
chefs from Hong Kong.
"I long Kong is well-known for
its famous food Chan said.
"The chefs from Hong Kong
make very good food
Some specialty dishes served
at the Szechuan Garden that
Chan highlighted because they
are popular with her customers
were Kung Pao chicken (chicken
with peanuts), hot and sour soup,
Szechuan beef, sesame chicken
and beef with broccoli.
According to Mike Harris,
international student adviser,
ECU has 24 international stu-
dents from China. Some have
patronized Chinese restaurants
and have come back with a vari-
ety of opinions.
"I have been to the China
Buffet over by Target, and I liked
it said Yafu Zhao, graduate stu-

Students can now take college-
level courses in the comfort of
their own homes as a result of
Internet classes.
ECU was pioneer in the
development the Internet tech-
nology necessary to begin offer-
ing industrial technology classes
on the Web in 1995. Currently,
there arc students enrolled in
Internet classes offered by ECU
on five continents.
The first classes offered in the
foreign language department
were graduate level Spanish
courses which began in the
spring of 1999. French and
German graduate courses will
also soon be available on the
Web.
"There is a huge push towards
the virtual classroom method of
teaching said Todd Finley, a
professor in the English depart-
ment.
There arc some differences
��between Internet classes and
standard attendance classes.
Open channels of communica-
tion exist between the professor
and the student in Web classes
that are constantly accessible

Solution and ECU, and was cre-
ated in order to promote Internet
education.
Professors of Internet classes
keep electronic office hours, and
students can keep in contact with
them by using e-mail. Students
are also able to use classroom e-
mail and chat
rooms to aid in
the learning
process.
The first
class typically
is given in a

Forget falling asleep in Ellen
Hilgoe's college algebra class.
With activities ranging from the
quadratic formula to origami stars
and boxes, she proves math is
more than just numbers and bore-
dom. -
This vibrant, outgoing woman
teaches math as a hobby. Her
attention and time is primarily
devoted to NC's Early Math
Placement Testing Program, a
program that gives high school
students a practice version of the
college placement math test. The
program is designed to give stu-
dents an idea of what is required
in college math as well as to
encourage them to take as much
math in high school as possible.
While Hilgoe enjoys her posi-
tion as program manager for the
NCEMPT Program, her heart
remains in the classroom, giving
students a greater insight into
mathematics.
Hilgoe received her under-
graduate degree from Longwood
College in Virginia. She went on
to earn her master's degree here at
ECU. She then taught at J.H.
Rose High School off and on for
13 years; during those 13 years, 11
of those years were spent here at
ECU. She was presented with
J.H. Rose's Young Educator of
the Year Award for 1983-1984.
In addition to teaching, Hilgoe
enjoys such activities as playing
tennis, gardening and being a
mother.
In Hilgoe's class, students are
destined to ieam more than just
math. The importance of family
values shines through in class-
room discussion, where her moth-
erly instincts become apparent in
the way she treats her students.
Hilgoe teaches more on a person-
al level and always makes an
effort to get to know each student
individually.
"My favorite group of students
is the freshman class Hilgoe
said. "They are so open-minded
and willing to try new things
Hilgoe reaches out by making
a student feel comfortable with
the subject at hand. Her door is
always open to students who want
help or those just wanting to chat.
At the end of the semester, she
reminds her students that she is
always there to help them, even if
it is on work from another math
class.
Although she may not be able
to convince every student to turn
their interests toward mathemat-
ics, she does encourage her stu-
dents to pursue whsfc they feel
will make them happy.
"I hope that every student can
find a profession that gives them
as much satisfaction its teaching
does for me Hilgoe said.

New e-mail
policy pending
Initiative intended to
protect student privacy
IlKlAV h'kl.KI. I. K
vrui- � ;i i i i i!
A new e-mail policy is coming soon
protect students' privacy online.
The new policy will call for stu-
dents to change their e-mail pass-
words every 90 days according to an
EDP audit requirement.
The current policy states: 'The
University may authorize confiden-
tial passwords or other secure entry
identification; however, employees
and students have no expectation
of privacy in the material sent or
received by them over university
computing systems or networks
The new policy will also require
that students pay for print-outs that
they make off of the Internet in
Joyner Library, along with other
locations on campus.
"I think that it's easy to get to
said Tavalas Staten, senior. "I don't
agree with having to pay for print-
outs but other than that, f think it's
pretty good
The policy is intended to safe-
guard students' privacy while
online.
"It's designed to be protective
of your rights said Ernest
Marshburn, director of .Strategic-
Initiatives for Computing and
Information Systems. "It provides
guidelines for appropriate uses
Officials say that the number
one reason for adopting the policy
is security.
"People can look over your
shoulder and see what you type
in said Dr. Jeff Huskamp, chief
information officer for ECU. The
password is only as good as the per-
son who uses it. It should have at
least one non-alphabetic character,
and not be a word you can find in a
dictionary
Students, who under the new
policy, do not change their pass-
words every 90 days will lose access
to their e-mail account until they
do change it. Some students have
already experienced problems with
this. '
"It worked last year said
Christie Wall, sophomore. "I enjoy
using it, but now I can't access my
account
There are students who choose
not to use the e-mail at ECU.
"I don't really use mine said
Christine Connerton, junior. "It's a
pain to get to, so I usually give out
my AOI, address instead
Once the policy is adopted,
those students who choose to use
their ECU e-mail address must
make sure to update their pass-
words periodically.
"Generally for most people the
policy will be effective Huskamp
said. "Students and faculty need
lots of notice about the change

Knickerbocker said. "Student
can attend class whenever they
have time
Classes are basically self-
paced but exams and quizzes
must still be done at scheduled
times.
"Students should be awae

As part of an ongoing exchange pro-

MBA graduate student. "Many of
the foods were too sweet and
they lost the original taste
One of the better known
Mexican restaurants in Greenville
is El Kanchito, located at 31S E.
10th St next door to Kinkos.
Among many of the international
and American students. El Kanchito
seems to be at the top of the list of
the most authentic Mexican cuisine.
"El Kanchito) doesn't seem to
be americanized said MBA gradu-
ate student, Vladimir Zhuravel. "I
have friends from Colombia who
consider it to be authentic, more so
than Chico's
"As opposed to other Mexican
restaurants in the area, the presenta-
tion of the food is nicer and the
atmosphere is more authentic at El
Ranchito said Danielle Custis,
senior. "They have Mexican chefs
who have been trained in Mexican
cuisine. It's not just your average
Jose off the street
According to l.eroy Salazar,
junior, many of the dishes are
authentic, but there are still meals
that have been americanized.
"The enchiladas aren't like the
ones served in Mexico Salazar
said. "Enchilada comes from the
word chili, as in chili peppers,
which are very hot. El Ranchito
doesn't serve it that way
Another dish Salazar said would
not be found in Mexico is taco sal-
ads.
Greek cuisine has been quite
popular in Greenville' for many
years. One restaurant that has been
around for about 20 years is
Marathon, located at 706 S. Evans
St.
"We were the first restaurant to
introduce authentic Greek food in
Greenville said Perry Kachroo,
manager.
According to Kachroo,
Marathon provides Greenville with
Greek specialty foods such as
gyros, souvlaki, khoryatiki (tradi-
tional Greek salad), homemade
salad dressing, et cetera. Also, it
serves subs and specialty pizzas.
"Marathon has kept up with
the change in eating trends
Kachroo said. "We have the best
vegetarian selection in town and
have repeatedly won the best place
for vegetarian food for the past sev-
eral years
Although there arc many
options in the Greenville area for
something out of the norm, many
may not take the chance of trying
something new.
"Most people think taco salads,
burritos, and enchiladas are ,the
extent of Mexican cuisine and
rarely venture to try dishes whose
names they can't pronounce or
aren't familiar with Custis said.
"Some people prefer what they
know instead of trying something
different Zhuravel said. "I see
people going to I lams and standing
in line instead of going across the
street and trying out Marathon

Pirate football prepares for Duke
Anticipation high for
upcoming home game
MMMMNNNINMBU
STKI'MliN SCUHWIM
SCOUTS KIHTOIt
Momentum has not been a luxu-
ry that ECU has had in the past
few years.
A loss in Morgantown to West
Virginia, and a blowout loss at
the hands of Virginia Tech have
opened the past two seasons on a
down note. After last Saturday's
win over West Virginia, the
Pirates have the momentum
they have lacked in years past.
This week, they open their
home schedule against the Duke
Blue Devils.
"Right now, we've got a team
that's trying to figure out how to
take a pat on the back said
Steve Logan, head coach.
A record crowd is expected to
attend the first game of 1999 that
will held in the renovated
Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. The
last time these two teams met
was in Durham in 1994. Duke
won that meeting 13-10.
It was a banner year for the
Devils in 1994. They had a new
coach, Fred Goldsmith, and they
opened by winning their first
seven games. They secured a
bowl bid in 1994 and finished 8-
4. Much like 1994, this Duke
team has a new coach, Carl
Franks, and is looking to
improve on its 4-7 record in
1998.
"Well, their films show us that
they've got a very good football
team, and I mean that in every
sense of the word Logan said.
"It was a close but no cigar
deal for them last year. They
were four and four and went to
Vanderbilt hoping to win two of
their last three, then got beaten
in double overtime, and it really
took the wind out of their sails
This Duke team returns 18 of
22 starters, nine on offense and
nine on defense. Among those
returning for the offense are
quarterback Spencer Romine,
tailback B.J. Hill, receivers
Scottie Montgomery and
Richmond Flowers and four
offensive lineman.
Much like West Virginia, the
Blue Devils will look to open up
the field with their passing
attack. Franks was an assistant
for former Duke coach and cur-
rent Florida head coach, Steve

On defense, experience and
depth, along with talented line-
backers make the Duke defen-

ter than West Virginia's, in my
opinion. So we're .going to have
to be very creative, and we're

Women's soccer
scores two wins
ECU victorious over
Bowling, Campbell
Ti ii w V i i:ks
SI F F HI T i: H
The ECU women's soccer team
celebrated the holiday weekend
with a pair of victories over
Bowling (ireen University on
Sunday and Campbell University
on Tuesday.
"This was a good win for us, as
Bowling Green has had some suc-
cess this season already against
teams like Michigan State said
Rob Donnenwirth, women's head
soccer coach. "We did what we had
to do to create chances and score
on our opportunities
The Pirates began their 4-2 vic-
tory over Bowling Green with a
goal in the 34th minute from fresh-
man Unicity Dittmer off an assist
from junior Katie Moran. This was
Dittmer's first collegiate goal.
Bowling Green came back to
answer at the end of the first quar-
ter with a goal from Mandy Smith
off of an assist from Beth Wechsler.
After intermission, the team
turned it up a notch and it made it
too hot for the Falcons to handle.
Sophomore Kelly Grey quickly
regained the lead for the lady
Pirates with a goal off an assist from
senior Jennifer Reiley. Junior Kim
Sandhoff scored the game-winning
goal as she chipped in a corner
kick.
"We're coming out as a team
now said junior Angela Baroni, an
ECU defender. "With a new coach
it's hard to be a team, but we're
now coming together as one
An insurance goal was added by
junior Charily MeClure in the 69th
minute of the game to give the
Pirates a 4-1 lead. The Falcons
weren't giving up that easily, as
they came back to score again to
make it a 4-2 final.
"We did, however, not defend
well two times and we got hurt
both times Donnenwirth said.
"Overall, this was a good win for
the team
The Pirates outshot the Falcons
17-14 in the victorious effort.
Senior goal keeper Amy llorton
help to notch a win for the Pirates
with two goals allowed and three
saves, while Krika Flander took a
loss for the Falcons with four goals
allowed and seven saves.
According to Baroni, with these
two wins the team is finally gaining
"respect" from other teams.
The Pirates showed the

Both the men's and women's

many talented newcomers. Head
(loach Tom Morris, who is in his sec-
ond season with lxth teams, has a
goal set for this season's team.
"I would like to get both teams in
the top 100; we are playing a very
competitive schedule and that is
what is necessary to achieve national
rankings Morris said.
On the men's side, youth is abun-
dant according to Morris.
"We have six freshmen, three
juniors and one senior Morris said.
"The freshmen are talented but we
are working on getting them strong
enough to handle college level com-
petition
The women's team will have a
very competitive schedule this sea-
son. Sophomore Meredith Spears is
very excited about the season which
Ixrgins next weekend.
"This schedule will get us pre-
pared for the tough matches in the
conference Spears said. "In our
third match of the year we play
William and Mary, wIk is always
nationally ranked; also, CoHcge of
Charleston is very good
Spears said that the age of the
team is responsible for the chemistry
between the players.
"It works out well because of the
freshmen-sophomore relationship
lietween the players Spears said.
"The younger giris don't feel intim-
idated by us and it makes it fed
more like a family
The key to the growth of the
team rests on the shoulders of Coach
Morris.

ward the end of Notre Dame's
36-22 loss Saturday to Michigan has
sparked a debute in college football
circles on whether NCAA officials
ate being too uptight about letting
players show the emotion that
makes college football what it is.
I After scoring a two-point con-
version to put Notre Dame up 22-
W, Brown put his thumbs in the
eprholes of his helmet and wagged
his fingers at the Michigan crowd,
'the gesture, which lasted only a
fiw seconds, cost Notre Dame 15
yards on the ensuing kickoff. The
Wolverines then returned the kick-
off to the 40 and scored less than a
minute later to pull out the win.
I Even though the call put into
motion the Michigan drive that
cost Notre Dame the game, Irish
coach Davie said he agreed that the
NjCAA should take a tough stance
on excessive celebrations.
1 "I think that's the thing that
kteps the integrity of the game
intact, and I think that's the thing
that separates college football from
the NFL. It is a team sport Davie
said.
"D) I think Bobby Brown was
excessive in nature? No. Do I think
he was taunting in nature? No. But
by the letter of-the rule, he did
something that he shouldn't do and
he did draw attention on himself
Randolph's infraction seemed
much more innocent that Brown's
actions. The sophomore, who
caught one pass last year for five-
yards in the 13 games that he
played, scored after Central Florida
blocked Travis Dorseh's 22-yard
field goal attempt.
The kicker rebounded the
block and heaved the ball toward
Randolph, who caught it at 15-yard
line. With no one around him, he
headed for the end one and took
off from about the four-yard line,
belly flopping across the goal line.
Purdue spokesman Tom Script!
said the penalty had no tearing on
the game, so the school hasn't
asked the Southeastern
Conference crew officiating the
game for an explanation as to why
Randolph was penalized.
"We like to have some fun with
the game Tiller said. "1 don't
know. If you draw attention to
yourself excessively or some such
thing or taunt an opponent, OK
"Otherwise, I think you ought
to have a little bit of fun with the
sport of football
NCAA rules prohibit "any
delayed, excessive or prolonged act
by which a player attempts to focus
attention on himself said NCAA
spokeswoman Jane Jankowski.
The league trains officials on an
annual basis and sends them tapes
of showing demonstrations of rules
violations. Otherwise, it's "up to
the game officials to make the
call Jankowski said.
Regardless, don't expect any
jubilant celebrations out of the
Irish on Saturday. Davie said
Brown has been having trouble
sleeping since the game, and he
hasn't had to say much to his play-
ers about watching what they do in
the end zone.
"I le told us either celebrate
with your friends and teammates or
just celebrate on the sidelines

Dame eornerback. "Basically at

WACO, Texas (AP)�Tommie
Frazier always knew he would
become a football coach. But first,
he had to pass a test.
By choice, the former Nebraska
Cornhuskers' star quarterback
spent the past two years avoiding
the game he once dominated. He
worked in the Nebraska governor's
public information office for six
months and then landed a market-
ing job with a Lincoln, Neb tele-
phone company. Frazier wouldn't
even consider coaching until he
could prove to himself that he no
longer wanted to play.
"I wanted to be able to sit down,
enjoy a game on TV, and not feel
the urge to play he said. "I want-
ed to get that desire out of my sys-
tem first
Now, nearly four years after
leading Nebraska in back-to-back
perfect seasons, Frazier says he has
done exactly that. He starts this
season as Baylor's running backs
coach.
Although he still looks fit
enough to suit up, Frazier said he
never even thinks about playing,
and he said he's a better coach
because of it.
"There's a lot of 30-year-old
coaches out there who still want to
play, and that takes away from their
coaching Frazier said. "I think if
you'te going to coach, your whole
focus should be on helping the
kids
Though he was widely recog-
nized as one of the best college
football players ever, NFL teams
passed on Frazier because of
questions about his passing ability
and concern over his history of
blood clots. -
(:lots in his leg plagued him dur-
ing the (lornhuskers' IW4 champi-
onship run, and similar problems
caused him to end his Canadian
Football League career after one
season.
Frazier is at Baylor because of
new Bears' coach Kevin Steele.

"There's nothing he thinks he
can't do, and the players react to

it Steele said, "lie's mature,
intelligent, competitive ami a win-
ner in every sense of the word
Frazier originally was hired by
Baylor as a graduate assistant and
was ready to add to his communica-
tions degree by enrolling in sum-
mer courses.
But when a full-time coaching
job came open during spring drills,
Steele offered a promotion.
"When I called him into my
office and told him the news, he
lwc me that same smile he gave
me when we recruited him, and
that same smile he gave when he
told doctors he was going to play in
the 1W5 Fiesta Bowl Steele

Bengals look to escape the cellar
(A.P.)Before he dug into his bowl
of mock turtle soup standard fare
for a Cincinnati Bengals preseason
luncheon, general manager Mike
Brown dished up some optimism
for 1999.
"I'd like to think we could lie a
winning team Brown said in his
deadpan tone. "I'd like to think
that we could even be a playoff
team
A winning team? A playoff
team? Cincinnati hasn't known
either since 1990, the last year that
Paul Brown ran the team. And
given the way the preseason turned
out, there's little reason to think
the misery will end along with the
decade.
The Bengals tried to win their
preseason games to generate confi-
dence and soothe fans, but went 0-
4 for only the second time in fran-
chise history.
Carl Pickens, the team's all-
time'leading receiver, is holding
out for a trade because he wants
out of Cincinnati. Mike Brown
refuses to trade him for draft picks,
leaving an impasse that helps nei-
ther side.
A long contract dispute with
first-round draft choice Akili Smith
left the quarterback way behind in
developing as a rookie.
That's not all. The cornerbacks
are inexperienced, the receivers
have trouble getting open, the
overhauled offensive line has no
depth and the first-unit offense
failed to produce a touchdown in
the last three preseason games.
It's no wonder the talk shows
and letters to the editor are filled
with angst from Bengals fans who
are convinced the team is headed
for another 3-13 mark just like last
year, 1994,1993 and 1991.
"Just shoot me wrote John
Vote of Covington, Ky.
What will hold the interest of
Bengals fans this season? A couple
of things, actually. No. 1: the fate
of coach Bruce Coslet.
Brown is reluctant to fire coach-
es and Coslet is under contract
through 2000, his best insurance for
returning even if things get out of
hand again.
There's one intervening factor
this year. The Bengals are getting
ready to move into their glitzy new
$404 million stadium complex in
2000 and don't want to have those
cushy seats either empty or filled
with angry fans. The stakes are
higher this time around.
"This is the bridge season from
last year's dismal season to next
year's opening of Paul Brown
Stadium Coslet said. "We want to
get the fans back so they can fill
that thing up
That means Coslet's future will
be hashed over with each and
every loss. A lot of fans talk about
him as if he's halfwav out the door.

Arts & Entertainment Magazine of The East Carolinian
Thursday. September 9,1999
Kenton Bell
Staff Writer
The East Carolina Playhouse offers an exciting array
of plays for the 1999-2000 season.
Some of the upcoming shows highlight everything from
a Tony Award winner to a philosophy-based search into
the hearts of men; from a dark look into Shakespeare's
mind to an intriguing situation comedy.
The theater department faculty will also be contributing
their expertise with a unique view of directing and pro-
ducing.
"The Music Man by Meredith Willson (Oct. 7-12),
finds its origins in 1953 during the "Golden Age of
Broadway?' The story involves a love affair between a
traveling con man, Professor Harold Hill and beautiful
librarian Marian Paroo.The love affair blooms, while
Professor Hill tries to fleece the entire town by starting a
local band with the plan to leave on a midnight train.
The musical comedy introduced such well known songs
as "Trouble in River GtyT"Seventy-Six Trombones" and
"My White Knight
"I try to let the material be itself said Marcus Olsen,
director of the show and program coordinator of musi-
cal theater. "I am not looking so much for a concept but
that the story is told. It is important to make the audi-

CD Review
They ain't no
The Donnas chum out the angry
punk you've been missing
Bangles
Patrick McMahon
Staff Writer
In this day and age of music, it is
extremely difficult to find good rock
'n roll either on the radio or in your
local music store. Fluff music has
taken over with a vengeance not
seen since Menudo gave way to the
New Kids on the Block.
The collective BS encompassing
the music of people like Ricky
Martin and that Iglesias guy, along
with the all-too-numerous boy
bands has clogged the airwaves with
crap.
I mean, two of my all-time
favorite bands have turned into pop
icons. Korn and Limp Bizkit, for all
they have done to bring metal back
into the American musk landscape,
have turned into exactly what I
feared they would. They are no
csted i& what you have to say
t CDs, movies, videos, clubs,
, campus activities and
urants. If you're interested In
l� review,Orjust want to rant
about the erttertalarnent industry,
contact Mfccah at 32JW36Aof stop
by the East Carolinian offices on the
second flow of the Student
Publications Building, feu can also
e-mail her at fountaiah�ad@sru-
longer relentless metalheads with
short hair, but Pepsi-drinking wuss-
es. Make no mistake, Limp Bizkit's
new CD is one of the best I've heard
in a while, but jeez Fred, can I see
your mug any more times in one
day?
You can probably tell that I'm
pretty disgusted with the music out
there. But Hallelujah, I've found
music that is plenty hard, rocks like
a quarry, and gives you a distinctly
pleasurable feeling of anger after lis-
tening to it.
The Donnas are back with a new
album, aptly titled Skintight, because
the beats and rhythms are tighter
than a frog's, um, well, you know.
Launching off the underground suc-
cess of their first alburn, American
Teenage Rock and Roll Machine, this
quintet of teenage femmc-fatalcs
release their pent-up aggression at a
number of targets, namely parents,
the police and idiot males.
I know that may sound a tad stu-
pid, but they come off extremely
dean and well-rounded. Lead singer
Donna A. has a voice that is so
sweet-yet-harsh that you find your-
self just wanting to sit down with
her and converse for a bit.
I cannot say enough good things
about this album. It's definitely punk
with good ole fashioned ass-kicking
rock thrown into the mix. I mean,
for God's sake, they even cover
Motley Crue's"Too Fast for Love
Sure-fire songs like "Skintight
"Zero"and "Searching the Streets"
show the band's diversity and range.
For anyone who loves Kamones-
influenced punk with a dash of the
Crue, this is an obvious must-have.

"Hi, this is Kermit the Frog repre-
senting Flintstone brand laxatives,
the foremost way to get your child to
wish heshe were potty trained
I'm just kidding. This isn't Kermit
the Frog, but instead it's Ryan
Kennemur, your pal from TEC and
The Fountainhead. The preceding
message was a hoax, purely in jest, I
think. But isn't that where we're
headed?
Turn on the television one day
and try to deny it�old sitcom stars
and washed-up Hollywood actors
are trying to get us to do their bid-
ding, whether it be dialing their
numbers or wearing their clothes.
I mean, just because George
Jefferson says we should wear one of
his Old Navy tech vests, does that
mean anything? I would have loved
to have been at one of these meet-
ings where people decide on who
gets to appear in these commercials.
I envision a long black table with
models from S&K (possibly even
johnny Bench) sitting on either side
and looking towards "President
Charlie" from "Charlie's Angels who
of course is seated at the head of the
table. The suit-dad yes-men are
tossing around names of giant box
office stars and quickly rising ones,
such as Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jerry
O'Conndl and the cast of "Blair
Witch
Charlie sits patiently with a Ross
Perot-esque look on his face, one
that says You guys can sit here all
day with your Love Hewitts and your
Furbys and your rat-a-tat-tat. The
fact of the matter is this�I'm gonna
cast some of my old army buddies
that saved my life back in Guam. I'm
talking about George Jefferson, Tony
Danza, and yes, even Tom Berenger
who coincidentally saved my bare
white bathing butt from Billy Zane's
itchy trigger finger in the movie
Sniper.
So it was written, so it was done.
About two years ago, this whole
thing with the 10-10 numbers and
the Old Navy drawstring pants (let's
just call them pajamas, shall we?)
caught a wave of interest and has
been riding the crest ever since. But
in all honesty, I fed that if I ever
need to get an ex-sitcom star's opin-
ion. Ill probably just call "Weezy"
Jefferson. I'm pretty sure she's listed.

ECU has traditionally been a uni-
versity rich in both its cultural diver-
sity and its ability to provide the stu-
dent body with quality entertain-
ment. This final jear of the century
proves no different.
Quality entertainment will always
be available, from the Family Fare
Series, which offers outstanding pro-
ductions; to the Travel Film and
Theme Dinner Series, which pro-
vides a combination of great food
and unique foreign films; to the
popular S. Rudolph Alexander
Performing Arts Scries, which sup-
plies audiences with world-
renowned acts.
These three programs are both
economically reasonable and conve-
niently located within campus
boundaries.
"These programs work because of
our strong ties with the community
of Greenville said Bill Clutter, direc-
tor of the Department of Student
Unions and Mendenhall Student
Center.Two goals include deepen-
ing social relations between students
at ECU as well as getting future stu-
dents involved in (hearts
The Family Fare is a family-ori-
ented scries of productions that pro-
vides the audience with a whole-
some atmosphere while entertaining
with timeless theatrical presenta-
tions. All productions are $9 at the
door and to the public, $8 to the fac-
ulty and staff at ECU and $5 to the
student body and youth.
The first performance is entitled
"Sundiata.The Lion of Mali"and
will be presented at 2 p.m. Sa.urday,
Oct. 2 in Wright Auditorium.
This classic African musical leg-
end is a traditional triumph of good
over evil. With its use of colorful
masks, music and dance, the ethnic-
ity of the play will surely enrich all of
its patrons.
The beloved tale of "The Lion,
the Witch, and the Wardrobe" by C.S.
Lewis opens Saturday, Oct. 30. This
story introduces the audience to the
land of Narnia, a war-torn country
ruled by the evil White Witch. With
the help of four children who mis-
takenly enter Narnia through the
door of a wardrobe, the great Lion
King, Asian, saves his country and
defeats the Witch. All shows are
appropriate for children and adults.
The Film and Theme Dinner Series
incorporates the dining traditions of
particular cultures and introduces
participants to an authentic film of
the region. The cost of dinner and
the movie is $17 per person or $12
for ECU students, who also can use
their ECU One Cards.
By simply traveling to the Central
Ticket Office, you can journey all
over the world, from Switzerland to

Carol Woodruff, director of mar-
keting for Student Unions, calls the
S. Rudolph Alexander Performing
Arts Series "one of the finest pro-
grams that can be found at any col-
lege or university in the United
States
Certainly with the attraction of stars
such as Harry Belafonte and musical
groups like" 1964 The Tribute
this statement is accurate.
Harry Belafonte, also referred to
as "the consummate entertainer
and the"King of Calypso" will be
live and in the flesh at 8 p.m.
Thursday, Oct. 28, in Wright
Auditorium. Belafonte has earned
both a Tony and an Emmy for his
work while producing such hits as
"Jamaica Farewell"and "Banana
Boat (Day-O) The evening will be
a mix of new and old, and his musi-
cians and singers, who come from
diverse backgrounds, will produce
his signature rhythms derived from
the music of Africa, South America
and third-world countries.
Tickets are $40 at the door and
for the public, $36 for faculty and
staff of ECU, and $20 for ECU stu-
dents and youth. They will go on

Tribute'creates MAGIC
Michael Aho, a student who takes
advantage of the performing arts
series, says, "Students are offered
ticket prices that are almost laugh-
able! In addition, students can
become FRIENDS of the Series and
receive benefits and experiences that
are unattainable at most schools. I
am extremely happy about the qual-
ity and availability of professional
music and performing arts here at
ECU"
In the final season before the end
of the century, make it a point to be
involved in the acceptance of all
humankind through these events.
For students to receive their dis-
count rate, they should purchase
tickets at the Central Ticket Office in
Mendenhall Student Center and pre-
sent their ECU One Card at the time
of purchase. All patrons are encour-
aged to purchase their tickets for all
events ahead of time due to popular
demand.
The Central Ticket Office number
is 1-800-ECU-ARTS and is open
Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m6 p.m.

"Gardenia by John Guare( Nov. 10-
15), is a piece that centers around the
journeys of three wounded Civil War
survivors and a nurse named Lydie
Breeze. The quartet decides to estab-
lish a Utopian community on the
island of Nantucket to preserve the
American view of freedom and self-
sufficiency. The play follows the devel-
opment of the community and ulti-
mately its downfall.
The biblical connotations become
apparent as money, jealousy and
gations of rampant, evil ambition in
all the world's dramatic repertory'
Jealousy, temptation and an unrelent-
ing desire to take control of the throne
of Scotland are all themes dealt with in
the play.
"The Foreigner by Larry Shue
(March 30-April 4), is a light-hearted
farce that presents a fed-good ambi-
ence interspersed with quick-witted
bon mots. The story involves the inter-
action between "Froggy" LeSeuer.a
British demolition expert and a shy
young man named Charlie. Through
the course of the play Chariie begins to
pretend he is from a foreign land, and
speaks no English.
This allows a fanciful plot to devel-
op wherein Charlie finds a family to
love him, and a sweetheart all his own.
"Larry Shue, who died tragically at a
young age at a time when his career
was about to skyrocket, tells a lyrical
tale: that the nature of relationships
and their dynamic can be explained,
expressed and translated without ever
utteringa word of sense said Robert
Caprio, director and assistant profes-
sor.
The final production of the season
is"Dance2O00(April27-May2),
Action intensities in last year's
worldly ambition begin to change the
ideals of the theoretically ideal society.
"(The play) addresses the issues of
all young adults said DonBiehn,
director and associate professor. "We
embark on a life of purpose and
intent, but often times we become dis-
tracted, we lose our way, we make
excuses
"Macbetha perennial favorite by
William Shakespeare (February 10-
15), offers another look into the distin-
guished writer's mind.

GILBERT, Pa. (AP) The toilets at a
Monroe County fair have some
women flushed with anger.
Bathroom attendant Jane Burley says
she hears nonstop complaints about
the oddly-shaped toilets she calls
squatters
"I'm used to it she said just tell
women at least they're coming out of
the ground and not out of the wall
Shaped like a long, narrow U, the
fixtures are installed in the ground
like regular toilets but don't have
seats. Six squatters are installed in the
rest room near the livestock area of
the West End Pair, along with six nor-
mal toilets.
"I couldn't use that said Helen
Szako of Eastonlfs terrible. I would-
n't even know how to use them. I also
think they're bad because you can fall
on them. They should be in the men's
room
Other women said they don't know
if they should sit, stand or even which
way to face while using the squatters.
l.eon Clapper, who owns a plumb-
ing business in Stroudsburg, said
squatters were made for sanitary pur-
pases so women don't have to touch
the toilet seat while going to the bath-
room.
"They're old-time urinals for
women said Clapper, who tried to
show how to use them by assuming
the stance of a baseball catcher.
SABATTUS, Maine (AP) Passersby
may be frightened and offended, but
cattle and hog farmer Leon Hinkley
says he means no harm. He said he
mounted the heads of butchered
cows on fence posts to waid off evil
spirits and protect his herd.
So far, according to Hinkley, it
seems to be working.
five years ago, he was losingJO to
15 cows a year and veterinarians were
at a loss to explain why they were
dying. But since the heads went up,
the death rate at his Sour Ground
farm has fallen sharply.
"My grandfather always had a cow
skull on the barn. He said it kept the
dead away. I never believed it. I
thought it was bull Hinkley said.
lhurwt oCptBMHT y, 1





ERICAN Oddities
When he butchered his next cow,
he immediately planted the head on
the fence that surrounds his l(X
head herd.
Now, he repeats the process every
time he butchers a cow. "It keeps the
evil spirits away. Seriously he insist-
ed.
Hinklcy figures as many as 16
skulls adorn the fence now. Two are
works in progress, with the flesh
slowly falling away.
There will be more this fall when
he docs butchering.
The frightening fence is only a
cow's length from the pavement. It's
a startling sight for drivers who take
a wrong turn down the dead-end
road.
Motorists from Vermont, New
York and Ohio have pulled over to
take pictures, some of which have
appeared in their hometown news-
papers.
Some passersby aren't amused.
"This was horrific said Stephanie
liourget of Auburn, who chanced
upon the heads while driving her
van down Williams RoadWc felt
we stumbled on something from out
of this world
"You get a real disturbed feeling in
your belly said liourget, who watch-
es horror movies and doesn't think
of herself as squeamish.
liourget said sticking the heads
on poles beside the road is disre-
spectful, "liven with a dead animal,
there's a matter of respect for the
dead she said.
liourget contacted local humane
societies but was told there was
nothing they could da
State health officials said there are
not enough rotting cow heads on the
fence to pose a danger to public
health. Richard
Itchr, public health inspector in
Sabattus, said no laws prevent
Hinkley from hanging the heads on
the fence.
Hinkley says his totems are more
than just protection from bad magic
he considers them a kind of tribute
to the animals.
The remaining cows clearly don't
mind, Hinkley said, noting that
they'll come over and lick the heads
and watch them.
"People go'Oh, that's gross. That's
terrible Hinkley saidlint the
heads ain't there for a joke
DURHAM (AP) Criticized by femi-
nists in years past for her unrealistic
anatomy, Barbie's body parts are just
right for a Duke University Medical
Center worker who makes prosthet-
ics for amputees.
anc liahor uses plastic knee
joints in Darbies legs for knuckles in
prosthetic fingers. She got the idea
three years ago after working with a
patient who also was an engineering
student at N.C. State University.
Mattel, which makes the popular
fashion doll, was so intrigued by the
idea she's sent liahor a free bag of
joints.
"It's working out well for several
patients said liahor, an anaplastolo-
gist, whose colleagues around the
country are also testing the ideaA
lot of us have played around with the
Barbie joint
liahor and the patient, Jennifer
Jordan, thought Barbie's easy-to-
bend knees could make Jordan's
prosthetic finger more realistic and
useful. Jordan brought in some of
her old dolls, liahor took them apart
to find a "simple little ratchet joint"
that fit quite nicely inside a flexible
foam digit.
When liahor began experiment-
ing with Barbie as a donor, she col-
lected old dolls and amputated their
legs to remove the knee joints. Later,
she decided to preserve the dolls by
cutting open the legs, taking out the
knee joints, then closing the legs and
giving them back to children.
"A 3-year-old could care less if the
doll has a suture line down the back
of the leg she said.
But operating on each doll took
time.
Last fall, when liahor thought the
idea was really going to work, she
called Mattel and asked to buy some
knee joints.
Mattel responded with the free
parts.
"Everybody here is really excited
that Barbie not only brings joy to lit-
tle girls but also can help adults who
have had accidents said Lisa
McKendall, a Mattel spokeswoman
in California.
liahor has used Barbie's knee in
two types of prostheses. In some
patients, she installed the joint in a
single prosthetic digit that attaches
by suction to the remaining portion
of the finger. Other patients with
more extensive damage wear rubber
gloves. Bahor inserts the doll joints
in flexible foam fingers that fit inside
the gloves.
The fake fingers bend the same
way Barbie's leg does. Users can
bend the joint with their other hand,
as if cracking the knuckle. Just like
Barbie's legs, the fingers stay bent
until the owner straightens them
again.
Being able to bend prosthetic fin-
gers makes it easier for an amputee
to hold a pen, pick up a cup, or grip a
steering wheel.
"Just a simple thing like that is an
enhancement Bahor said.

Beahm in the back after all.

Laser Surgery of the Skin has agreed

Movie Review
baching Mrs. rmgle is no Scream
Annie Hemby
Correspondent
So,you've seen Scream and Scream
2 a dozen times already, and you sit
eagerly in front of your television every
Wednesday night for"Dawson's Creek
Kevin Williamson, the genius behind
these teen phenomenons, has another
hit to add to his rapidly growing cre-
dentials: Teaching Mrs. Tingle.
During its first week in theaters it's
cornered the teen market, appealing to
mainly a young audience willing to
shell out $6.50 for thrills and a
chance to ogle their fave
celebrities, i.e. Katie Holmes of
"Dawsoris Creek
Teaching Mrs. Tingle is a
humorous look at the teacher
everyone had who made our
lives miserable. Katie Holmes
plays Leigh Ann, a high-school
senior hoping to be valedic-
torian so she can earn a col-
lege scholarship. Only one
obstacle stands in her way:
she must make an "A" in his-
I tory class.
When Leigh Ann is
i wrongfully accused of
cheating on the history
I final, the scholarship seems
t like a lost cause. Or is it?
With the help of her friends, o
and Luke, Leigh Ann is about to
teach Mrs. Tingle a lesson in "what
goes around comes around Tenfold.
If you're looking for a dark comedy,
or if you've always wanted revenge on
your Mrs. Tingle, you'll identify with
Teaching Mrs. Tingle. Lookout for
appearances by former teen idol Molly
Ringwald, who plays a guidance coun-
selor. Don't flock to theaters expecting
another Scream, though. You won't
jump, squeak or so much as bite your
nails during this one. You may leave
feelinga little"tinglyhowever.

highly unsophisticated Ryan-

Pardon me. Again, I apolo-

of a yeti. The movie my alter ego and I
watched was a little independent film
from the early 90s called Hear of a Hind
Hat. It was marketed as a mockumentary
about a year in the life of the fake rap
groupNegroes with Hats Sort of a
"Spinal Tap" for the rap world.
The film follows a year in the life of Ice
Cold, the main rapper and lyricist, Tasty-
Taste, a parody of Public Enemy's side-
man, and Tone- Def, the D.

silly, be advised that this is one of the
most intelligently written movies 1 have
ever seen. It came out around the same
time that a similar movie called (717 did,
but 'dat movie sucked, yo! Even with
Chris Rock in that mug! I mean.daamn!
(hack hack).
Sorry. Like I said, this movie follows the
group through thick and thin while shed-
ding light on each of their personalities
and character traits. We get to know each
character in a very personal manner,
such as Tasty's love for weapons, brass
knuckles and uranium. Also, we are
allowed to see that lone-Def can work
the turntable with various body parts.
However, we don't get to see but two of
the group's five managers, all of whom
are killed by gunfire except for Whitey
DeLuka.
At any rale, the group breaks up
because of a girl coming between Ice and
Tasty, and so the boys go their own artis-
tic ways. Ice Cold turns his act into a C &
C Music Factory parody; Tasty turns his
into a I.I. Cool sort of act with his song
"Granny Said Kick Yo Ass while Tune-
Def, gets hooked up in that spiritual junk
and makes his act like those trippy fools
from P.M. Dawn, (hack-choke).
By the end, though, the band has made
amends and the movie's grand finale is
an uproarious whirling dervish of a
homecoming. Rut it's not the story that
makes the movie worth watching, it's the
dialogue. Like when Tasty tells the docu-
mentary maker about guns, he picks up
an Uzi and tells herthis is a good gun
for beginners. It's like one of those auto-
focus cameras. You just kind of spray the
area
Combine lines like that, and Ice Cold's
street philosophy with a soundtrack
including songs called "Booty uice
"Comeand Pet the P"ssy"and"Fck the
Security Guards" and you've got what I
call the finest date movie since
Anaconda. Payee out!

Band Review n-rn-
Patrick "I got two broke toes and a
microphone" McMahon
Staff Infection
The "two broke toes'Mine is not a
fabrication of my fertile imagination.
It is the God-awful truth. The result of
a freak accident between myself, a Big
Wheel and a 4x4 Toyota Corolla, these
two shattered appendages on my left
foot were supposed to prevent me
from fully enjoying last weeks show
at the Attic Oh, how they were wrong.
The show, sponsored by 99X,
began with a pretty good band by the
name of The Pilfers. Fueled by heavy
crowd interaction, this ska-reggae-
punk band got the fans on their feet
in no time and left the crowd in a
dizzy delight.
In complete contrast to the may-
hem to come, the band fueled a posi-
tive message about justice and toler-
ance that came off as honest and
6 Thursday. September 9,1999
complete. The two lead vocalists
worked off each other well, with fluid
rhythms throughout the entire show.
Ry this time, I was getting so
worked up about seeing Orange 9mm
and Kottonmouth Kings that my toes
became less of a concern. They were
wrapped up in tape so tight my toe-
nails were gasping for air, so I had lit-
tle concern for their safety. As I talked
with some of my friends in the back,
all of a sudden it hit hard. Real hard.
Orange 9mm busted on -stage with
a vengeance. Blasting right out of the
gate with a song off their new album,
they literally shook the entire bar
right from that viscous first note.
After about three songs, I was so
jacked up on adrenaline that I just
had to throw myself blindly into the
mosh pit, broken toes and all, and do
some major metal moshing.
But the hazard of cigarette smok-
ing soon revealed itself by suffocating
my lungs enough to keep me from
being able to gyrate wildly for the
duration of their set. I ended up sit-
ting out the last couple of songs to get
some air. Still, my thoughts on both
shows: Orange 9mm�good.
Mariboro Man�bad.
Orange 9mm put on one of the
greatest sets I've seen in a while.
After their set, the band members
mingled throughout the crowd like
they were one of us. Taylor, their gui-
tarist, was one of the nicest guys from
any band that I've ever talked to, and
through this heavenly job at the
Fountainhead, I've talked to many.
Orange 9mm will play Virginia
BeachonSept.il with 18 other
bands in an all-day festival headlined
by Kid Rock, so be sure to catch that
show. I know I will. I mean damn, it
ain't but 10 bucks sol know you got
the dough. Oh, and Be sure to watch
out for their new bassist
When he's playing he looks like
pure Satan.
After all the moshing going on up
front, it was funny as hell to see the
bewildered faces in the crowd stum-
ble to the back during the break to get
fresh air. After a brief rest period, they
were right back up at the front and
waiting for the band that we all came
to see, the Kottonmouth Kings.
Almost the entire crowd saw these
guys last semester when they opened
up for 2 Skinnee J's (stealing the show
in the process) and became instant
fans. I myself was one of them. This
was definitely a night to remember.
The Kings blasted onto the stage
with "Suburban Life" and the crowd
began jumping uncontrollably. It
seemed like everyone knew the
words. It wasnt cool. It wasn't "neat-
a"It was muthafrickin unbelievable. I
have never,and I repeat, never.seen
anything to beat it.
My friend James, who has to be the
biggest Kottonmouth Kings fan in
existence, even got a microphone
were awesome
jammed in his face so he could sing
along on "Bong Toking Alcoholics
which made all of our nights com-
plete because this kid ydled his ever-
loving heart out.
The Kings had the wildest ending
of of any show I've ever seen. For their
final song they reserved the laid-back
jam called "Pimp Twist" and had all
the ladies in attendance hop up
onstage for one last hurrah.
Ladies on-stage with K. Kings
doing nasty dancing equals high-
point-of-the-night. One girt was even
riding the drummer as he played.
I fed sorry for anyone who had to
miss out on this night because it will
truly go down in the history books as
one of the all-time greatest shows at
the Attic. Play on, play on

I drove down 264 for about an hour
in the sweltering heat and arrived in
Wilson with the smell of tobacco in the
air. I knew
that I would
see some
familiar faces
and hear
some good
musk. I
arrived at the
concert sleep-
deprived and
starving, as usual, and paid my money
at the gate. When I received a copy of
the program, 1 couldn't believe there
were going to be 20 bands playing! The
show had already started when I got
there. On the side stage (there were two
stages,) a band was finishing up their
set They were playing a song called
"Holland Martin It didn't occur to me
at the time, but the song made fun of
those fishing television shows (do they
still make those?) It was hilarious
because a song like that being played by
a hard-core rock n'roll band is some-
what strange.
Later on the main stage.a band from
good ol'(or is that not-so-good of?)
Greenville took to the stage. They call
themselves 7 Ton Diesel and can some-
times be seen at the Attic. Sounding like
straight-on heavy metal with growling
vocals, the band stirred up a small
group of people into slamming into
each other. They stopped (bra moment
so the lead singer could curse some-
Ixxfy for about two minutes for slam-
ming into a girl. Needkss to say, I
enjoyed this.
The headlining band, Drill 187,
reminds me of Korn in the way they
dress and because of those guys with
dreadlocks.
They look
and sound
better than
ever. Their
CD is avail-
able at CD
f Alleyhcrein
I Greenville.
" Theywere
also selling them at the show, as were
many other bands who had booths set
up.
The atmosphere was comfortable, as
it was an outdoor show.and the action
was non-stop. The bands would switch
off between the side and main stages,
which meant the crowd didn't have to
wait for the next group to set up Having
not been to this annual event in a few
years, I was impressed, ft seemed bigger
and better than ever. Sponsors included
Hud we iser, CD Alley, Schoolkids
Records, and various tattoo parlors. One
of die main organizers who helped
make such a great event possible was
Tony"Dfc"LeonaniYes.Dio.Asin
heavy metal god Ronnie James Dio. A
lot of you freshmen won't know what
that means, but that's okay since you
don't know much else either. Wfell, to
wrap things up, I would recommend
keeping an eye out for the next
Metal lest in Wilson. It's the only good
thing that happens there
