NEWS EDITOR
Junior Paul Davis thinks that
it would be a good idea to put
on a benefit concert in Minges
Coliseum.
After Floyd's flood waters
washed away his Phi Kappa Phi
reggae party, he had $35,000 left
in sold tickets. Davis decided to
use that money to help bring
flood relief to students.
According to Davis, he began
to recruit various campus orga-
nizations after the hurricane, in-
cluding the SGA and other Greek
organizations. But in order to use
Minges Coliseum to hold a con-
cert, he would have to get per-
mission from the Athletic De-
partment.
According to Davis, assistant
director of Student Activities Jay
Marshall met with Mike
Hamrick, director of athletics,
about reserving the facilities for
an Oct. 30 concert.
But Marshall stated that he
had a meeting with the Athletic
Department on Monday, and
possible dates would be discussed
for when the coliseum would be
available.
He said that Nov. 18 looks to
be a tentative date for when the
facilities would be free, though
no official approval has been
made. Students would have to
pay for the planned concert,
though food and cash donations
would be accepted. Those pro-
ceeds would go to help hurricane
victims.
During the Oct. 4 meeting,
Marshall said he discovered that,
besides ECU athletes using the
facilities for practice, visiting
teams also use Minges and
Dowdy-Ficklen.
"This is the bottom line:
Minges is difficult to get during
basketball and volleyball seasons
and Dowdy-Ficklen is off-limits
during the fall Marshall said.
"A benefit concert needs to
take place in the fall Davis said.
"There's a low morale on cam-
pus. This could make a dramatic
effect on ECU'S face now
Craig Curtis, assistant athletic
director for equipment and op-
erations, who is in charge of
scheduling events at athletic fa-
cilities, stated that he met with
Marshall and two students on
Monday, but according to Curtis,
all that was discussed was how
the Athletic Department could
work with the Student Union in
scheduling student activities. He
said that no specific concerts
were mentioned.
Dr. Henry VanSant, associate
director of athletics, stated he
had not heard anything about
this specific concert.

"Rock the Vote"
Campaign aimed at increasing turnout
Terra Steinbeiser
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
With the next presidential election a year away, students
are being reminded of the importance of voting.
Today is the last day of the University Housing Services
(UHS) sponsored "Rock the Vote" voter registration campaign.
"This is such a great opportunity for students said Manny
Amaro, director of UHS. "If you want to change your environ-
ment, that's what you do, you register to vote and then you go
do It
Since Tuesday, resident advisors in all 14 of ECU'S residence
halls have been dutifully passing out registration packets to
encourage their residents to complete the registration form.
UHS's decision to promote "Rock the Vote" is due in part to
federal and state legislation passed last year. The new laws state
that universities have a responsibility to provide their students
with the resources to become politically active, especially in
the voting process. The "Rock the Vote" campaign is to be-
come an annual ECU event.
Voter registration packets are still available at the UHS of-
fice, located in Jones Hall.

hose who enter col-
lege are often warned
about the "freshman fif-
teen the idea that most
first-year students gain
an average of 15 pounds.
"It is not a myth, it happens said
Laura Hartung, ECU nutritional
director. "Students come to school
and they ate on their own. The
availability of fatty foods can over-
whelm some students to the point
of overeating. Those extra calories
can end up affecting you come
the end of the semester
"The unbalanced intake of fatty
foods and a lack of fruits and veg-
etables also contributes to the fresh-
men fifteen said Michelle Rudder,
manager of the Groatan.
"Although cheeseburgers and
pizza arc served throughout campus
dining halls, there are also wide vari-
eties of nutritional items to choose
from. Our nutritionist makes sure
that all food on campus is being pre-
pared and cooked correctly
Through a combination of eating
and social habits, first-year students
can make sure that their weight
does not increase dramatically.
Both Todd and Mendenhall din-
ing halls provide all-you-can-eat
buffets and offer many nutritional
items including soup, pasta, fruit,
grill items and salad bars.
Other ECU dining facilities also
provide healthy alternatives. The
Galley serves healthy breakfast
choices, including fruit and bagels,
and the Wright Place offers various
types of salads and fresh fruit for
breakfast, lunch or dinner.
"We have some kind of healthy
or low-fat entree at every food loca-
tion Hartung said.
The Center Court, located in the
Student Recreation Center, features
a juice bar that serves freshly-
squeezed drinks, juices and an
assortment of freshly-made smooth-
ies. Power bars, fruit, granola barsf
and other healthy snacks are also
provided.
"Fruits and vegetables are a vital
part of a nutritional diet Hartung
said. "Both provide essential vita-
mins, proteins and carbohydrates
The Student Rec Center offers
students exercising opportunities,
which also allows students to main-
tain their weight. The center pro-
vides students access to many types
of fitness equipment, including an
indoor track where students can
walk, run or jog. A variety of weights
helps both male and female stu-
dents build their muscle strength
and increase endurance.
'The recreation center lets me
work out, work off stress, exercise
and feel better about myself said
freshman Vanessa Olorvida.
Hartung revealed other tips on
how to fight the freshman fifteen.
"Don't skip breakfast and eat
regularly she said. 'This will keep
your metabolism at a steady rate so
that you can burn calories. Also,
exercise, avoid snacking and alco-
holic beverages and try and enjoy
your meals
"The freshman fifteen definitely
exists, said freshman Sarah Wilson.
"Having such a rushed schedule
does not allow very much time to
think about nutrition. Usually I
have to grab something quick for
lunch and then rush to my next
class
Freshman Rachel Kleinman dis-
agrees.
"I think that the freshman fif-
teen is only a myth because there is
no way that I could possibly gain
weight with my having to walk so
far to my classes everyday she
said.
"I think the freshman fifteen
only affects those who let it said
freshman Mandy VanCooney. "If
you don't take care of yourself by
exercising and eating right, then of
course you are going to put on

ECU promotes new

Dr. Christopher Edley, senior
adviser to President Clinton, ad-
dressed his audience on Monday
and Tuesday with words of unity.
"We need to find values that
unite us, rather than those that
divide us he said.
Edley, a U.S. Civil Rights
Commission appointee, Harvard
Law Professor and author of "Not
All Black and White presented
the first lecture of a year-long
initiative on improving race re-
lations.
"This is the first year in a long
series of race, relationships and
the role of individuals, institu-
tions and communities said
Chancellor Eakin. "We are truly
a community and it was clearly
shown throughout our disaster,
a disaster that has brought us all
together
During his lecture at Hendrix
Theater, Edley determined that
equality can be reached with
three key aspects; opportunity,
community and heart. He ex-
plained that the first step is to
look past the differences of oth-
ers. Then one needs to practice
communicating with people
from different backgrounds and
values.
"You can't have one aspect
without the others or it won't
work it is the challenge of to-
day Edley said. "Discrimination
is alive and all too evident in the
world, while Affirmative Action
is a key to make it work and
battle discrimination
Those present for the lecture
praised the program.
"ECU has taken a step in the
right direction dealing with di-
versity they ECU realize cul-
ture sensitivity is necessary in
order to understand one another
and work together, said Na'im
Akbar, a student.
"Edley will be the first pro-
gram of many Last April stu-
dents suggested that the chan
cellor institute programs that
would deal with culture sensitiv-
ity. The chancellor asked stu-
dents to come up with program
ideas, and that's how we got to
where we are today. The response
has been good from the admin-
istration
"Diversity is the key to the
growth of universities said
Taffye Benson Clayton, special
assistant to the chancellorEqual
Employment Opportunity of-
ficer.
"President Clinton has pro-
posed week long lectures on di-
versity throughout campuses
across the nation to help pro-
mote more equality dealing with
housing, jobs and overall oppor-
tunity. ECU plans to follow the
path to equality and the pro-
grams dealing with diversity will
continue throughout the school
year
Many are looking forward to
what the year-long program
promises.
"The program will help
bridge the gap between different
cultures and help ECU become
the Utopia of diversity that it
publicizes to be said Roderick
Stevenson, president of Allied
Blacks for Leadership and Equal-
ity.
"Personally I think that the
steps ECU is taking to ensure di-
versity are in the right direction,
but it's too early to see any re-
sults from their new programs

Breast Cancer Awareness Month underway
Physician to host
open house
Carohn Herold
STAFF WRITER
October is Breast Cancer Aware-
ness Month, which means that
women will have an opportunity to
learn more about this disease.
ECU graduate Dr. Beth Foil
hopes to provide one forum. She
will host a breast health awareness
open house at her practice on Fri-
day.
"I think it Is very Important to
learn how to do a good self-exam
and then do them every month
Foil said.
Physicians will be on hand to
answer questions about breast self-
exams, breast cancer risk assessment
and prevention education. Free lim-
ited consultations by appointment
will also be available. The open
house will be at 501-A Greenville
Blvd. and will be free and open to
the public.
Breast cancer Is caused when
cells, located most commonly in the
ducts of the breast, become malig-
nant or cancerous. Infiltrating Duc-
tile Cancer is the most common
form of the disease. If caught early,
it has a 90 percent cure rate.
Some forms of the cancer are
invasive. They spread beyond the
ducts of the breast and spread to
other areas of the body. Others are
non-invasive and can be treated
when caught early on by surgery
and radiation therapy.
It is thought by the medical
community that the cancer starts
out as non-invasive and then
changes to invasive and spreads.
With breast cancer, early detec-
tion is key. The cancer can be caught
when it is still small by performing
an exam every month and getting
a yearly mammogram.

Concerns raised about
Raleigh police tactics
N.C. State�The N.C. State Stu-
dent Legal Services Department an-
nounced last week that it has be-
come concerned over the methods
used by the agencies policing the
Brent Road party to issue alcohol
tickets to party participants. About
one-third of the NCSU students tick-
eted at the party have brought their
case to Student Legal Services over
complaints of entrapment by the
officers from the Raleigh Police De-
partment patrolling the neighbor-
hood.
"We are very concerned about
how the students received their tick-
ets said Pam Gerace, Student Le-
gal Services director. "We have no-
ticed that a majority of the tickets
were issued to students over the age
of 21, and we have separate groups
of students coming up with very
consistent scenarios, which should
be of concern
According to Gerace, all of the
students who have come forward
with complaints against the polic-
ing agencies have presented stories
that fit into one of three situations.
In one scenario, students over
the age of 21 who are walking across
the lawns of private residences are
approached by police officers and
told to exit the grass by way of the
sidewalk or else they will be issued
a trespassing ticket. The students tell
the police that they cannot go out
on the sidewalk because they are
holding alcohol; but if they lay the
alcohol down they will be issued a
littering ticket
"They are being told to walk on
the sidewalk with their alcohol and
then they are given a ticket for do-
ing so Gerace said.
In a second scenario, undercover
agents enter parties in homes rented
by NCSU students along Brent Road
and tell eyeryone under the age of
21 to leave. Then the police officers
issue possession tickets to everyone
under the age of 21, regardless of
whethef or not they have alcohol
in theipossession.
A third situation brought to the
attention of Student Legal Services
involves students who clearly are
not in possession of alcohol and

who are stopped and asked if they
have had anything to drink that
night. Although they purposefully
had not been drinking at the party,
many answer honestly that they did
have a drink earlier in the evening
at another private residence. They
are then issued a possession ticket
because alcohol is in their blood-
stream.
"If this last-case scenario is what
the agencies feel is OK, then any
adult over the age of 21 who steps
out of a restaurant onto a sidewalk
should received a possession ticket
because alcohol is in their blood-
stream Gerace said. "That

Potential effects of flooding on ground water quality
' This is the first in a continuing
series of essays from the geology depart-
ment.
As recent events in eastern North
Carolina can testify, we, fust like our
Stone-Age ancestors, are at the mercy
of the elements. Human actions do,
however, have local, regional and'glo-
bal implications Our Impact ori the
Earth is extremely complex and we can-
not always predict the results of our
actions.
These series of articles are a con-
tribution to Earth Science Week, an
annual October event read into the
Congressional Record and proclaimed
by President Clinton in October 1998.
They deal with humankind's interac-
tion with fhe. environment in the con-
text of Hurricanes Dennis and Floyd
and the floods that shut &CU down for

tlons, never before flooded, covered
by rising waters.
What do these all have In com-
mon? They represent sources of con-
taminants that recent flooding is
potentially introducing into ground
water whereby many eastern North
Carolinians depend.
More than half the population
of the state gets its drinking water
from ground water. In eastern North
Carolina, the water-bearing layers,
called aquifers, are beds of sand and
or limestone; overlying and under-
lying layers of silt and clay are con-
fining beds that keep the water in
the aquifers.
The ultimate source of ground
water is rain that falls onto the sur-
face sediments and percolates down
between the sediment grains. The
top layer of sediments is an uncon-
fined aquifer commonly called the
"surficial" or "water table" aquifer,
which has no confining bed above
it.
Aquifers can also be recharged
from surface water if river level is
high, such as during floods. If the
surface-water body (stream, river or
estuary) becomes contaminated,
then the aquifer being recharged by
that water can also become con-
taminated. Contaminants picked up
at the surface often pass through the
surficial aquifer and may move into
the deeper aquifers it recharges.
Sources of potential contami-
nants are numerous, but some of
the most common are run-off from
roadways and other paved surfaces.
This run-off leaks from storage tanks
containing gasoline, diesel fuel and
heating oil.
Overflow from overloaded mu-
nicipal sewage treatment plants, fer-
tilizer, pesticides and herbicides
pollute run-off from farm land,
overflow from breached or flooded
animal waste lagoons, and enter sea-
water that empties into the aquifers
along the coast
The contaminants are more nu-
merous than the sources but com-
monly include petroleum products,
fertilizers or sewage rich in nutrients
such as nitrate and phosphate,
heavy metals like cadmium and
lead, organic solvents such as ben-
zene and acetone, other industrial
chemicals, pesticides, herbicides,
etc.
Sources associated with animal
or human waste also carry the risk
of contamination by microorgan-
isms such as bacteria, viruses and
parasites. Any materials such as
these that are deposited on the
ground surface or carried by surface
water, can enter the ground water
supply.
Because it is unconfined and
shallow, the surficial aquifer is much
more easily contaminated than the
underlying aquifers. As of 199S,
more than one-third of the State's
population, 2,413,450 North Caro-
linians, received domestic water
supplies from private wells, many
of which are in the surficial aquifer
or other other shallow units.
Unlike large municipal suppliers
who are obligated to furnish their
customers with water that meets
specific drinking water standards,
individual resident wells seldom
undergo testing or treatment (other
than softening and iron removal).
Most contaminants cannot be de-
tected by taste, so consumers may
be unaware that their water has be-
come contaminated.
Ground water is not used only
as a public water supply. Many in-
dustries and agricultural operations
rely on this water for processing, ir-
rigation and even habitat, in the
case of t he ra pidly expandi ng aquac-
ulture industry in eastern North
Carolina. It is an invaluable resource
that contributes to our economy, as
well as to our health and well-be-
ing.
Situations such as the devastat-
ing and widespread flooding east-
ern North Carolinians have experi-
enced provide ample opportunity
for contamination of the surficial
aquifer and the shallower confined
aquifers.
The flow rate of water through
the surficial aquifer, whether on its
way to recharge local streams or to
slowly recharge the deeper confined
aquifen, is extremely variable and
poorly known. In the case of an
unprecedented event such as the
recent flooding, predictions of shal-
low ground water movement are
especially problematic.
Therefore, to minimize the risk
of consuming contaminated water
from shallow aquifers, private wells
should be periodically tested for
months to years following such an
event.
The next installment in this series
will run on Tuesday, Oct. 12.

register, but I just never got around
to it said freshman Cristi Riteswer.
"Plus, I wasn't really sure how to go

For some students, the fact that
a program like "Rock the Vote" is
needed is discouraging.

"Rock the Vote" started in 1990
by members of the music industry
in response to a series of assaults on
First Amendment rights. Soon it was
expanded into a national campaign
to politically empower the youth of
America.
According to their handout,
"Rock the Vote is dedicated to pro-
tecting freedom of expression and
to help young people realize and uti-
lize their power to affect change in
the civic and political lives of their
communities
In 1992, the organization re-
leased several public service'an-
nouncements using prominent en-
tertainment figures including
R.E.M En Vogue and Queen Latifah
to spread their message to young
Americans by way of MTV, VH-1
and BET.
Additional artists who have sup-
ported "Rock the Vote" by lending
time to the cause include Ice-T, Ozzy

Madonna, Aerosmith, Sheryl Crow,
Dave Matthew's Band, Megadeth
and others.

Freshman Hui-Won Choe thought that the pro-
gram would not help discrimination on campus.
"I don't think that it will be 100 percent affec-
tive he said. "Everyone has their own opinion
and people's opinions and views are hard to change
If these types of programs had worked in the
past there wouldn't be racism now ifs a stretch
saying that it will work
"I think that the program will work, but per-
sonally I haven't been affected by discrimination
said freshman Jacqueline Owens.
"I believe students are the most important if
they come together and work together the unity
may become contagious and better the campus

Co-ed dormitories
deemed immoral
U. Arizona�In the wake of the reaction
to her recent controversial comments, Ari-
zona Rep. Jean McGrath, R-Glendale, has not
softened in her belief that co-ed dormitories
are immoral, endorsing premarital sex and
underage drinking.
The driving force behind McGrath's posi-
tions is her belief that state funding should
be kept to a minimum. The thought of money
being spent "supporting immoral behavior
is her biggest concern, she said.
McGrath said she has received a "ton of
e-mails" from University of Arizona students
responding negatively to her comments at the
Board of Regents meeting on Sept. 23.
"They were very nasty, with a lot of name
calling and vulgarity McGrath said. "They
were all just very immature, and it certainly
doesn't further their point
McGrath said the responses that she has
received from non-students has been positive
and appreciative to her for speaking her mind.
The majority of student responses came from
UA students, McGrath said.
"Ifs really the adult view of the world ver-
sus the student view of the world that has
created the problem she said.
While McGrath would not reveal the
names of the authors of the e-mails, she said
they called her a "puppet head for right-wing
propaganda, a rambling idiot and said she
is "effectively destroying our society

ourview
Right now, the ECU Athletic Department controls both Minges Coli-
seum and Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. Although the Pirate Club raises money
for sports facilities, the university owns both buildings.
According to an e-mail from J. Marshall, assistant director of Student
Activities, the Athletic Department is required by a written statement from
Chancellor Eakin to allow the Student Union to use their facilities four
times a year.
Now the department and students are scouring the athletic calendar
trying to find a date when athletes are not using the facilities. What does
that say about our school's priorities?
As students, we support ECU athletics by attending games, buying
merchandise and providing them with a student body to represent on the
field. We play in the band, we brag about their wins and we mourn losses.
We do everything a student body should do in support of athletics.
Now we would like a little consideration. If the students want a concert,
we should be able to have one, up to four times a year.
Of course, this means that athletes would have to find someplace else
to hold a few of their practices. We at TEC think the Greenville community
would gladly open their schools and fields to any ECU teams if it meant
that a benefit concert could be held.
But, a concert is not the most important issue here. Neither is hurri-
cane relief. What motivation could the department possibly have for de-
nying the use of university-owned facilities to university students for a
university-sanctioned event?
Concert organizer Paul Davis has received backing from the SCA and
other student groups. The concert's proceeds would go to benefit flood
victims. The students want to see good bands on campus, and this is a
wonderful opportunity for everyone involved to have fun while helping
the community.
Having a benefit concert is the best idea to hit campus all year, and
there's no doubt that student turnout would be impressive. All we've got
to do now is move that big cash cow out of the road.
OPINION
Unsung heroes guide us in flood aftermath
Patrick McMahon
OPINION WRITER
These last few weeks have been
a tremendous burden on the popu-
lation of North Carolina, as well as
other states up the coastline. How-
ever strong the burden may be, we
as a community have banded to-
gether in a way that I thought was
never possible. In response to the
devastation that Big Bad Floyd
brought to our campus, the univer-
sity is taking unprecedented steps
toward making this transition as
seamless as possible for the students.
For this they should be praised.
You may know by now that TEC
is beginning an effort to name he-
roes that played an outstanding role
during the hurricane. My thoughts
bring me to the one and only clear
choice for the title of "hero That
person is Chancellor Richard Eakin.
This man has gone out of his
way to assist the students of this
university in any way possible, even
offering students a spot in his home
until they can get back on their feet.
He has enabled numerous students
who would have otherwise dropped
out for the semester to stay enrolled.
He is the true hero. Never before
have I been so proud to be a mem-
ber of the student body.
As we praise the Chancellor, let's
not forget about the other unsung
heroes of this tragedy: the ECU
maintenance workers for their tire-
less efforts; the grounds crew for
their determination to maintain the
level of beauty on campus that we
have come to know, love and ap-
preciate; and finally, the ECU Police
Department for being so consider-
ate to all students looking informa-
tion, updates or even a conversation
when needed. I will never forget the
ECU officer stationed at the bottom
of College Hill Wednesday night
and Thursday morning during the
hurricane. He showed enormous
dedication by staying on the job
while his family remained at home.
I hope that he and his family made
it through everything safely.
And finally, on a personal note,
my condolences go out to the
friends and family of the late Aaron
Child. I know how devastating the
loss of a dear friend and relative can
be and how hard it is to go on know-
ing that that person won't be there
to join you. Take comfort in the fact
that he is in the loving embrace of
the Lord.
I remember when one of my best
friends, Travis Cobb Ellis, was killed
almost a year ago today. What
helped me through the tremendous
level of grief I felt was telling stories
about the times we spent together.
It is important to talk about the loss.
Keeping everything inside only eats
away what resolve you have left.
The hurricane may have flooded
our homes, destroyed our belong-
ings and dented our campus, but it
hasn't beaten us as a community.
With the help of each other we shall
overcome this loss.

ar Editor, turn his attention from the disaster William about the game. His

Dear Editor,
We would like for you to meet
William.
William and his grandfather are
two of ECU'S most loyal fans. They
attend almost every ECU football
game and last Saturday's Miami
game was no exception.
As a youngster William would
watch a complete game. For years
he has known players names and
positions. He understands the plays
and is now in his first year of tackle
football. He is quarterback for his
team and talks about playing for
ECU one day.
William will tell you that he and
his grandpa are Pirate Club mem-
bers and that they sit in the Pirate
Club stands. He is quick to share
that everyone in his family has
graduated from ECU. It was William
that pointed out that the Miami
team was the Hurricanes, and that
this would make our players more
determined to win.
In the past weeks William has
witnessed much damage and loss as
hurricanes Floyd, Dennis and the
floods tore into the counties he
knows best (Beaufort, Pitt and Mar-
tin). We were glad to carry him to
Raleigh for the game so he could
turn his attention from the disaster
to fun.
Game time came. Accompanied
by Grandpa and Uncle Aaron, Wil-
liam, dressed in his finest ECU out-
fit, was ready to watch some foot-
ball. Then the unexpected, they
cheered as ECU actually won the
game. It was a joyous time for cel-
ebration.
The cheering soon ended for
Grandpa and Uncle Aaron as they
stared in disbelief and shame as a
few rushed the field and began to
destroy the goal posts. They
watched for a while and then turned
to William to begin their exit.
There was William, ECU's big-
gest fan, sitting on the bleacher cry-
ing. Big tears ran down his face as
he questioned the action on, the
field. "State was nice to let us use
their field, why are they doing that?
State will not want to play us again.
Please don't tear up State's field
Yes, at age nine, William knew
what was happening on the field
was wrong and would have nega-
tive repercussions for ECU. The
young ECU fan came to Raleigh to
forget destruction only to have his
heart broken.
After the game someone asked
William about the game. His reply,
The game was great, the best, but
after-the-game made me wish I had
not gone
To North Carolina State Univer-
sity, we extend our apology for a few
fans. We regret the actions of this
group and we do appreciate the use
of your football field. Good neigh-
bors should be treated with more
respect.
To ECU'S team and coaches, we
congratulate you on a great game.
You gave Eastern North Carolina a
lift in a time of despair. Thanks.
To those who ignored the an-
nouncements and rushed the field
to destroy other's property, we wish
you would consider this: Not only
did you disgrace your school, take
the focus away from the players and
coaches, and embarrass thousands
of fans, but you showed a future
ECU player how the actions of a few
can misrepresent the true image of
ECU.

OPINION
Efforts to unite cultures begins with forums J
Na'im Akbar
OPINION WRITER
Race relations, diversity and cul-
tural sensitivity. These are becom-
ing the buzz words at ECU as we
launch a pro-active agenda to cre-
ate dialogue and to gain a better un-
derstanding of each other in this
beautiful community of multiple
races and cultures.
The first missile in this effort was
fired on Monday night when Chris-
topher Edley, senior advisor to Presi-
dent Clinton's "Initiative on Race
spoke at Hendrix Theater in an
evening filled with revealing anec-
dotes on the framing of the
president's policy on race relations.
His informative, refreshing ap-
proach to this issue was followed on
Tuesday with a panel discussion on
"Race Relations and the State
These programs represent a bold
new beginning in promoting posi-
tive race relations and cultural sen-
sitivity at ECU.
I must commend Chancellor
Eakin and his staff for their efforts
and commitment to the enhance-
ment of diversity on campus.
As the most important people
on this campus, it is time for stu-
dents to step up to the plate and do
our part in this long-needed initia-
tive. For six months, we have been
in constant dialogue with the chan-
cellor and his staff on how ECU can
best begin the healing process as it
relates to promoting positive race
relations and cultural sensitivity.
It is very easy to complain about
a situation, the hard part is to bring
possible solutions to the table in
which everyone can live with.
When recognizing the increas-
ing challenges that colleges and
universities face in sustaining and
expanding educational and social
opportunities for an increasing di-
verse population, it is important to
identify and highlight innovative
strategies that will promote cultural
sensitivity.
If ECU is committed to equality
of opportunity for students, faculty
and staff, regardless of race, religion,
color, creed, national origin, sex,
' age, sexual orientation or disability,
then it is the responsibility of each
member of the ECU family to pro-
mote this equality of opportunity
and to make it a reality.
To this end, a group of students
consisting of myself, Latoya Davis,
Dushun Evans, Jason Evans, Elenah
Godboh, Shamika Spencer, Roderick
Stevenson, Patrick Suarez and
Yolanda Thigpen are proposing a
series of forums and activities that
will address this issue in a way that
will include diverse members of the
ECU community.
It is hoped that these forums
and activities will create discussion
among the members of the ECU
family which will lead to further
dialogue and steps toward greater
harmony among the diverse popu-
lation in this community.
The first forum will be held
Wednesday, Oct. 27 in MendenhaB
Student Center, which will consist
of a student panel discussion.
The second will be on Monday,
Nov. 15 featuring a panel discus-
sion. Several students, faculty and
staff have already made commit-
ments to be a part of this
I challenge each student, orgav-
nlzation and facultystaff member
to become a part of this effort to
make ECU a leader in promoting
positive race relations and cultural
sensitivity.
If you accept the challenge,
please contact me at the e-mail
address below or call me at 328-
3755 or 328-1680.
We have the opportunity to
build new, strong, diverse relation-
ships, or we can allow the human
tendency to reject differences and
limit the development of the ECU
community. The choice is ours.

Letter to the Editor
Immature behavior not welcome on campus
Dear Editor:
Riding the commuter shuttle
today, I witnessed an appalling dis-
play of immaturity and ignorance.
The commuter shuttle, upon
reaching Christenbury Gym, was
flooded with students (as is usual)
and quickly reached its capacity of
passengers. As people continued to
pack tightly together, the driver de-
cided that the bus at this point
could not safely transport any more
people to their destination. She
carefully pulled the bus out of the
bus stop and traveled only a few feet
to the nearest stoplight.
As the bus driver waited at the
intersection in front of
Christenbury Gym two young ladies
approached the front door of the
bus in hopes of being able to ride
the already-crowded bus. However,
the bus driver knew that she could
neither legally nor safely carry any
other people at the time, so she had
to turn them away until the next
round. The stoplight turned green,
and the bus drove away to its next
stop.
As the bus pulled away one of
the young ladies proceeded to call
the bus driver a "bitch I could not
believe the ignorance and ungrate-
fulness this young lady displayed by
using such derogatory language;
thus, I felt it necessary to address
the situation.
This incident is not the first of
this type of insolent behavior that I
have seen while riding the bus. I
have witnessed passengers demand-
ing the bus divers to let them off at
busy intersections (which are not
designated as stops). I have also seen
students ungratefully stick up their
middle finger at bus drivers who
cannot fit any more students on to
their crowded bus.
Passengers of the ECU transit
buses need to be aware, primarily,
that the bus drivers know their job
and do it well. Each bus driver has
to take extensive state examinations
to do what they are doing. There-
fore, they are qualified in their judg-
ments of safety issues for the buses
they are driving.
IF the bus driver tells you that
they cannot take anymore passen-
gers, please trust and respect their
judgments because they are licensed
to make those decisions. These bus
drivers have your safety in mind;
In addition, passengersjneedjo
be grateful to the bus drivers for the
service the they provide. The bus
drivers are students just like you
with tests, quizzes, papers and other
worries similar to your own con-
cerns.
Instead of giving the drivers an
attitude try telling them "thank
you" once in a while. It would make
their job a whole lot easier.
I am aware that it is not a joy to
miss the bus, but before you lef your
temper get the best of you, please
think rationally before acting irra-
tionally. Remember that the bus
driver is fully capable of making
accurate judgment about his or her
job.
And, finally keep in mind that
the bus will make other rounds�
you will get to your destination
safely!

Affirmative Action has place in society
Dear Editor:
In regard to Chris Sachs' piece
on discrimination, Mr. Sachs over-
looks the fact that such an instru-
ment already exists, the resume.
There is no personal informa-
tion on a resume, no picture, and
using your initial instead of a first
name is common, when Mr. Sachs
is no longer applying to Burger King
he will find this out.
Second, he forgot to name a few
other groups whose charters are EX-
PRESSLY racist and exclusive: The
Black Panthers and the NAACP.
These organizations have charters
that "are for the advancement of
people of color changing only

AARP, a few more words makes the

ture, Chris?
Don't assume that because those
whose charters support the ad-
vancement of whites are the only
racist, sexist, ageist bigots around,
the are only the most vocal.
As for ridding us of quotas, sev-
eral books come to mind which will
best show the overwhelming sup-
port for the abolishment of Affirma-
tive Action. However, the people for
whom it was created are the very
ones who will ultimately cry out for
it to stay. It is a crutch, I agree, but
it has been forced on us for so long
that many wouldn't try to stand
without it.

Tipsfor
cleaning house
after the storm
Open up the house.
If the humidity outside is lower
than it is indoors, open all the doors
and windows to exchange the
moist indoor air for drier outdoor
air. At night when the humidity is
higher outdoors, close up the
house.
Use fans.
A fan will help
to circulate the air
throughout the
house. Don't use
central air conditioning or the fur-
nace blower if your duct work was
underwater. They will blow out
dirty air that may contain contami-
nants from the sediment left in the
duct work.
Consult with a contractor.
There are contractors who spe-
cialize in flood restoration. Make
sure you work with a reputable,
insured contractor. Unfortunately,
there are unscrupulous individuals
who take advantage of disaster vic-
tims.
Wallboard
Most ceilings are covered with
wallboard, especially in new
homes. Wallboard that has been
soaked by floodwater presents a
; permanent health hazard. It is rec-
ommended that you throw out all
; flooded wallboard. If the wallboard
. has been soaked by clean rainwa-
ter, it can be dried in place with
' plenty of fresh air moving through
'� the area.
Plaster
Plaster will survive a flood bet-
ter than wallboard. It should not
j have to be replaced but it will take
! a long time to dry. Sometimes the
I plaster will separate from the wood
� laths as it dries, in this case the
j wall will have to be removed and
; replaced.
Insulation
There are
j three main types
of insulation and
each reacts dif-
ferently to flood waters. Styrofoam
i survives best. However, in contam-
! inated waters, it should be
I replaced.
I Wood
If allowed to dry naturally, wood
' will generally regain its original
� shape. Some contaminants will
i stay in the wood pores after it
( dries, but much more stays in flood-
! ed wallboard.
Ceilings
Check for sagging ceilings and
drain them carefully. If the flood
waters went above your ceiling,
replace it if it's made of wallboard.
A plaster ceiling will eventually
dry, but if it has too many cracks or
sags, it will have to be torn down
and replaced. Remove any wet
insulation in the ceiling to allow the
joints to dry.
Walls
Remove water trapped within
your walls. To check for water,
take off the baseboard. Stick a
knife into the wall about two inch-
es above the floor. If water drips
out, cut or drill a hole large enough
to allow water to drain freely.

Sonic people consider
themselves to be poor
because they are living
below the poverty line,
which is $16,684 for a
family of four, in the United States,
even if they are earning a steady
income or collecting Welfare from
the government.
In other countries, people literal-
ly fight every day to get enough
food to keep their children's emaci-
ated bodies from wasting away
completely. These individuals
depend on the generosity of those
more fortunate, and these dona-
tions usually come from charities.
Charities rely on the generosity
of individuals to help those in need.
Whether people give money or
volunteer their time, the work of
many people make beneficial orga-
nizations possible.
Many people are skeptical about
the validity of these charity organi-
zations and the percentage of the
money donated that really goes
toward their specific cause. To pre-
vent false charities from profiting,
the National Charities Information
Bureau (NCIB) was formed.
The NCIB evaluates over 400
organizations annually, making sure
that the organizations are in ordi-
nance with their rules and regula-
tions.
"We have been doing this since
1918 said Dan I.angin, director of
public information. "NCIB was
created by concerned citizens who
were surprised by the amount of
organizations that were popping up
trying to make money
The NCIB requires that each
organizatio" spends at least 60
cents of each dollar on the cause
(instead of on fund-raising and
overhead). They each must be
guided by a board of trustees or
directors who have the same goals
in mind us those who are making
contributions, and publish a state-
ment clearly saying where the con-
tributions are being spent, not just
an abstract "good cause
One of the charities that meet all
of the Bureau's rules and regula-
tions is the Make a Wish
Foundation. Its purpose is to grant
wishes for children between the
ages of two and 18 who have life-
threatening diseases.
"So far the organization has
granted 600 wishes said Jennifer
Cilatthaar, the administrative assis-
tant at the office in Raleigh.
The national division was estab-
lished in 1980, and it granted its
first wish for a 7-year-old boy with
leukemia in Arizona. The Arizona
Department of Public Safety grant-
ed the boy's wish to be a police offi-
cer by presenting him with a cus-
tom-made uniform, helmet and
badge and took him on a helicopter
ride.
The closest chapter to
Greenville is in Raleigh, and
according to Glatthaar, its territory-
consists of the 49 counties east of
the AlamanceOrange County line.
"There are only two full-time
and one-part time paid employees
but over 120 volunteers that assist
in granting wishes, public speaking
and administrative work Glaatthar
said.
When a person donates to Make
a Wish, the majority of the funds
goes to the cause.
"Eighty-eight percent of all
donations go to the charity
Glatthaar said. "The other 12 per-
cent of the donations go to fund-
raisers and administration

The office of Professor Archie
Smith is laden with sociological
books, antiquated typewriters,
pictures of luxury cars and Mozart
playing in the background arid
the man behind the desk. -
Smith teaches Introduction to
Sociology, Social Problems and
Deviant Behavior. Smith has had
several occupations prior to teach-
ing, including being a member of
the Navy, the Coast Guard and a
former State Trooper.
Reflecting back on a life that
in his opinion was well-lived.
Smith recalled one of his more
memorable accounts:
"The most curious event of
my life came in the Pacific Ocean
in 1960 just north of Japan
Smith said. "It was a cold, clear
night, and from the deck of a ship
I looked up and saw a man-made
satellite transverse the sky from
north to south. In that moment, I
knew we had entered a new era,
and I was in awe of our accom-
plishments
When asked whom Smith
would invite to his own hypothet-
ical banquet, he cites certain leg-
endary people because of their
unique characteristics and knowl-
edge.
Lenin, Hider and Stalin would
be guests because each could
offer their views of what it must
take for a man to believe he holds
the key to a nation's problems
and what brings man to become a
self-pronounced savior.
Watson and Crick would be
there because they showed a
glimpse into the very core of man.

would be invited for bringing a
vision of genius and creation in
form and function to the world,
along with Churchill, a wit, prime
minister and historian who
recorded his own acts during a
tumultuous period in his own
time.
Nieztche and Gandhi, who
were brilliant men trying to dis-
cover the true nature of man, as
well as Ghengis Khan ant)
Alexander the Great, who were
invaders, leaders and men of fate
would also be there. These are
the men and women that Smith
would share his table with, in
order to gain a better understand-
ing of humanity from the very
people who created it.
The role of a cultural observer
as a sociologist is an integral part
of Smith's teaching style, and ho
shares his experiences and anec-
dotes with his classes. He will bj
retiring at the end of the school
year.
"If 1 could give only one piece
of advice to a person growing up

Smith is a teacher, mechanic,

ries offer his students a view of his
nature, while his heroes and,
curiosity reflect his beliefs and;
values.

According to the Daily

'Family Circus' web parody to go
PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. (AP)
An Internet site that parodies the
Family Circus comic strip by allow-

raunchy, will be taken down.
Gary Galcik, who created the
Dysfunctional Family Circus web
site in 1995, agreed to take the site-
down after talking with Family

telephone this week.
"I'm not convinced I was on the

Oct. 8.
Keane last week threatened
legal action against Galcik, saying
some of the parody captions were

to portray with his comic strip.

ining Stars
Ohe 1999 ECU football team is
off to its best start in 23 years.
The Pirates have used a balanced
offense to bolt out of the blocks to
a 5-0 start. One of ECU's shining
stars is starting fullback Jamie
Wilson. Wilson, who is a native of
Greenville, has rushed for 515
yards and four touchdowns this sea-
son.
Wilson gives Head Coach Steve
Logan a strong back on which to
carry the emphasis of the running
game.
"Jamie has been an all-around
good back this year Logan said.
"He catches the ball well, blocks
well and runs well. He doesn't
have any weaknesses
Logan feels Jamie has pro-
gressed throughout his football
career at ECU.
"Midway through his red-shirt
freshman year he decided he
wanted to be a player and has real-
ly dedicated himself to it Logan
said.
Wilson is also very happy as
well as excited about this season.
He feels the team as a whole is
doing very well.
"This is very good for the
team Wilson said. "We worked
hard this season and we are getting
everything we deserve
Coming out of Greenville's
D.H. Conley High School, Wilson
was highly recruited by rival uni-
versities such as N.C. State and
South Carolina.
"When I came on my official
visit, the coaches seem to accept
me real well and the team was real
close Wilson said. "At a couple
of other schools I visited the play-
ers didn't seem as close as they
were here
Quarterback David Garrard,
who is also having a wonderful sea-
son is happy to have a player of
Wilson's caliber in his backfield.
"He is a good back, very atten-
tive and he knows what is going on
on the field Garrard said. "He
could probably even be the back
up quanerback because he knows
so much about the offense. He is a
pretty good key back there
Although Wilson is a terror to
deal with on the Held for the
opposing team, both coaches and
teammates feel Wilson is nothing
less than a class act off of the field.
"He is a great kid off of the
field Logan said. "He is a real
good student, one of our team
leaders and there has never been a
minute that you have to wonder or
worry about what he is doing. He
has a great head on his shoulders

The ECU football team is finally on the same page on and
off the field. For three weeks the Pirate squad occupied two very
different worlds.
Their lives on the field could not have been any better. Wins
over South Carolina, nationally ranked Miami and Army saw
the Pirates climb into the top 25 for the first time in three sea-
sons. Off the field, the team dealt with Hurricane Floyd and the
damage the storm left in its wake.

With the players' personal lives finally catching up to the
success of their football lives, the Pirates now prepare for one of

ably means a little more to us because if s a conference game
The Golden Eagles come into Saturday's game at 2-2. Their
two losses came at the hands of Nebraska and Texas A&M.
The Golden Eagles lost to Nebraska by only six points in
Lincoln. Southern Miss notched wins over Tulane and North-
western State at home in Hattiesburg to begin the season. In
both wins Southern Miss scored over 40 points.
In last season's 41-7 loss to Southern Miss, the Pirates were
unable to contain USM's freshman running back Derrick Nix.
Nix returns this season and is averaging 97 rushing yards per
game. In addition to the Southern Miss running game, a duo of
talented receivers spread the field. All-American candidate
Sherrod Gideon and Todd Pinkston should present a challenge
to the Pirate secondary.
Southern Miss has won the past three meetings with ECU,
and two of the meetings were in Greenville.
To beat the Golden Eagles Saturday, the Pirates will need a
total effort.
"I think everybody is going to have to show up Garrard
said. "I think we're going to have to need passing game, de-
fense, running game and everybody to step up. We've got to
play hard all the way down to the last wire to win the game
The last two times the Pirates faced Southern Miss it was
Southern Miss who sat atop the conference. This season, it is

Student tickets for ECU'S
home game vs. N.C. State will be
available Monday, Oct. 11
through Wednesday, Oct. 13.
Tickets will be available only at
the Central Ticket Office at
Minges Coliseum. The tickets will
be free with an ECU One Card.
Guest tickets will be available at
the regular ticket price of $30.
The game is scheduled for
Nov. 20. The highly anticipated
game will mark N.C. State's first
trip to Greenville.
The tickets will be made avail-
able over a month in advance in re-
sponse to the large demand ex-
pected for tickets to the game. An-
other reason they are available early
is to give others a chance to buy tick-
ets.
"We need time for any tickets
left after the students get a chance
to get them to go on sale to the gen-
eral public said Brenda Edwards,
ticket office manager.
So far, the game has not been
picked up by a television carrier,
though ECU has appeared on
FoxSports and ESPN2 this season.
"Nobody has picked it up yet,
but we may not know until 10 or
12 days out said Norm Reilly,
sports Information director.
Tickets to the game should go
fast as the demand for them will
be very high. N.C. State will be
the final game of the season. ECU
is ranked in both the ESPNUSA
Today and AP polls and the Pirates
remain undefeated. Should the Pi-
rates continue winning, the game
will take on added importance.
The rivalry between ECU and

extremely important.

Swim team looks to dominate in '99
Pirate prospects good
Peter Dawyot
SENIOR WRITER
As the ECU swim team prepares
to dive into the season, many
changes and additions should
strengthen the team and possibly
bring them back to glory days of
national championships.
With some unfortunate set-
backs due to Hurricane Floyd, both
the men's and women's swim
teams will not host the Purple
Gold meet�an annual event
which was to be held Thursday,
Oct. 7. The meet Is an intra-squad
match up which is traditionally a
formal introduction to the team
before the season begins.
"Unfortunately, because of lost
training time, we had to revamp
the early season schedule said
Head Coach Rick Kobe. "We are
eliminating the yearly pentathlon
that the team doles, we're cancel-
ing the PurpleGold meet and we
will only swim two days instead of
three at the Carolina Invitational
After the Lady Pirates came off
an 8-2 season with a third place fin-
ish in the CAA Championship,
along with a mediocre 5-5 fifth
place finish for the men's team,
Kobe looks toward the development
of past players as well as the addi-
tion of the new class to improve the
squad's records.
The men are bringing in three
Junior National Qualifiers with Pat
Bonds, Casey Charles and Chris
Miller. The women's team has also
made some significant additions
with the signing of YMCA National
Finalist Leslie Baronklin, along with
a pair of Junior National Qualifiers,
Aryn Letterman and Abbey
Stallworth.
"We are extremely happy with
the athletes we are bringing in the
fall Kobe said.
This year, both teams hope to
put last year's season behind them
while looking to develop many of
their returners which should help
both teams. The men have 16 of the
simmers from last year returning,
combined with the 26 returning for
the women. This should create a
strong seasoned squad which could
bring back memories of former days
when ECU reigned at the top of the
division for swimmers.
High turnover has not been lim-
ited to just the swimmers. Two new
assistant coaches for the swimming
and diving teams were hired over
the summer. Chris Feaster was
added to the staff as assistant swim-
ming coach and Kelly McCarthy has
been added to the staff as a diving
coach.
While the cancellation of the
PurpleGold meet may leave fans
out, they will not be disappointed
for long. Kobe will be working with
the new additions along with the
entire team to better prepare for the
upcoming meet against CAA rival
James Madison. The meet will kick
off the season on Oct. 15 at 5 p.m.
in Minges Aquatic Center.

Southern Miss coach not ESPN reporter stands by story about Tennessee athletes
surprised at No. 16 ECU
HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) �
There are many people who may be
surprised at 16th-ranked East
Carolina's 5-0 start, but don't count
Southern Mississippi coach Jeff
Bower among them.
"If you look at what I said in the
preseason, when I was asked who I
thought would win this conference,
the first name out of my mouth was
East Carolina Bower said Monday
during his weekly news conference.
After a week of following con-
secutive road losses to top 25 teams,
Southern Miss (2-2,1-0 C-USA), the
preseason pick to win Conference
USA, travels Saturday to East Caro-
lina (5-0, 1-0).
"They've got talent, new life on
defense with the new coordinator
there and their quarterback is much
more consistent than he was a year
ago Bower said of the Pirates.
Southern Miss has won all three
games against the Pirates since C-
USA play began in 1996, and holds
a commanding 18-6 series lead. The
Eagles won 41-7 last year in
Hattiesburg.
The lopsided series margin, how-
ever, isn't a comfort for Bower,
whose team preceded the open date
with a 20-13 loss at fourth-ranked
Nebraska and a 23-6 loss at No. 13
Texas A&M.
When asked how the Pirates
match up with Southern Miss' last
two opponents, Bower responded,
"They're pretty darn good. East
Carolina is a team that is resilient
and finds a way to win
The Eagles took advantage of the
open date to work with younger
players.
Bower said most of the work last
week included younger players
working out Tuesday and Wednes-
day and then scrimmaging Thurs-
day.
"A lot of our emphasis was
placed on getting better at funda-
mentals, assignments, not only of-
fensively but defensively Bower
said.
"It came at a pretty good time,
the week off, it gave us an opportu-
nity to hold out some of the guys.
After four tough games from a
physical standpoint, we're in pretty
good shape. Barring injury between
now and game time, we should be
at full strength
Senior linebacker TJ. Slaugher,
who had 20 tackles against Texas
A&M, has returned to practiced af-
ter off-week surgery to repair liga-
ments in his hand. Bower said

we reported.
"We reported that there was a
breakdown in the communication
of possible NCAA violations with
in the institution he said. "That's
an issue of institutional control
that has yet to be dealt with
Farrey said a male athlete e-
mailed him in response to his Web
query about student athletes, tell-
ing him:
"I'm tired of professors on cam-
pus thinking that because I am an
athlete I don't care about school or
1 get improper help or whatever.
This has to stop
University of Tennessee Presi-
dent J. Wade Gilley said the four
athletes were cleared by the South-
eastern Conference to play in
Saturday's game against Auburn af-
ter investigators found nothing in-
dicating any wrongdoing by the
players.
The University of Tennessee is
continuing its investigation of alle-
gations athletic department tutors
did schoolwork for athletes, a pos-
sible violation of school honor
codes and NCAA rules.
The allegations were first posted
Sunday night on ESPN's Web site,
ESPN.com, then reported on ESPN's
SportsCenter in the same hour.
Farrey called the athlete's e-mail
"a moment of conscience" and said
others who assisted him "were con-
cerned that eligibility (at Tennessee)
was more important than educa-
tion
Farrey, 35, joined ESPN.com four
years ago.
He broke his first story Investi-
gating collegiate athletic programs
as a student at the University of
Florida, for the campus newspaper,
The Alligator.
In 1992, at The Seattle Times,
Farrey wrote about a University of
Washington quarterback who took
a $50,000 loan. Washington, the
reigning national champion, was
later placed on probation.
Players return to practice as police wrap up investigation
Warrick, Coles
among suspects
Florida State wide receiver Peter
Warrick returned to practice Tues-
day while authorities tried to wrap
up their investigation into a $244
retail theft at a local shopping mall.
"There are some loose ends they
(police) are out tying up Leon
County State Attorney Willie Meggs
said Tuesday. "We have met with the
police (and) they'll get back to us
when they're done and some deci-
sion will be made
Scott Hunt, spokesman for the
Tallahassee Police Department, said
Monday that Warrick and receiver
Laveranues Coles "are going to be
witnesses or suspects
Meggs said no decision was
likely until at least Thursday. The
top-ranked Seminoles play Miami
on Saturday.
The 22-year-old Warrick is the
team's leading receiver with 36
catches for 508 yards and four
touchdowns.
"I don't like distractions coach
Bobby Bowden said Monday night.
However, he wouldn't speculate on
what action, if any, he might take
against the players.
However, the players sounded
confident Tuesday they would be
cleared of any wrongdoing.
"We'll be all right said Warrick,
who conceded he is learning about
the pressures of being one of the
nation's most recognized college
players.
"Everybody's watching he
said Tuesday. "When I'm doing
good they talk about me. When I'm
doing bad they talk about me. I'm
just trying to walk a straight line
and do what's right
While Warrick practiced Tues-
day night, Coles did not.
The 21-year-old Coles said he
and his roommate answered all po-
lice questions into their theft in-

Collins to start with Graham injured
Former Panther
to start for NY
Kent Graham is going to miss
the New York Giants' game against
the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday
because of a concussion, and Kerry
Collins will start at quarterback.
Graham, who started the first
four games, was injured in last
Sunday's 16-15 victory over the
Philadelphia Eagles.
He threw three interceptions
against Philadelphia, one returned
for a touchdown, and his status as
the starter was in question. Giants
coach Jim Fassel said he would
evaluate Graham's performance and
would announce his starter Wednes-
day. The injury made the decision
for him.
Graham was examined Monday
by neurologist Peter Tsairis of the
Hospital for Special Surgery in New
York City.
"All Giants are given neurologi-
cal evaluations in the preseason and
this information is used to deter-
mine any change in their neurologi-
cal status Dr. Russell Warren, the
team's orthopedic surgeon said. "A
battery of tests on Kent on Monday
showed some significant alteration.
At this point he is still symptom-
atic and will be evaluated on an
ongoing basis. My recommenda-
tions to the Giants is that Kent not
play this week
Collins, a free agent who signed

vestigation of a tan hat and four
shirts with a total estimated value
of $244. The merchandise was ap-
parently sold Sept. 29 to the play-
ers for far less money by a clerk be-
ing investigated by police and store
security.
"It's not like we grabbed clothes
and ran out Coles said. "It's not
for nearly $17 million in the
offseason despite a troubled past,
was 6-of-12 for 86 yards and led the
Giants on the game-winning field
goal drive after replacing Graham
In the third quarter Sunday. How-
ever, the drive included a fumble by
Collins.
"Kerry will start. After listening
to the doctors, obviously the mpost
improtant thing is not to put Kent
at greater risk Fassel said. "The
doctors told me because of the con-
cussion Kent suffered Sunday, he
will be more susceptible to concus-
sions this week. If Kent were to sus-
tain another concussion, we would
be looking at a longer period of in-
activity
The Giants offense has struggled
since the start of the season, al-
though Graham has not been solely
to blame.
Before the injury, Graham threw
three horrible interceptions on plays
he forced passes into coverage.
Fassel said it was almost as if
Graham (15-of-29 for 171 yards)
predetermined where he was going
to throw the ball and didn't bother
making any reads on the plays. Two
Eagles literally battled for the ball
on the third pick.
"After that last one, he forced it
right into the teeth of the defense, I
said I have to take him out of the
ballgame Fassel said.
Since becoming the Giants
coach, Fassel has changed quarter-
backs in each of his first two sea-
sons. Danny Kanell took over for an
injured Dave Brown (pectoral) In
1997 and led the Giants to the NFC
East title, posting a 7-2-1 record as
a starter.
New York won five of six games
at the end of last season after Gra-
ham replaced Kanell as the starter.
"There Is no question In my
mind that I am aware when I made
the quarterback switch the team has
taken off Fassel said You weigh
all those factors
Collins, the fifth overall pick in
the 1995 draft, led New York on an
11 -play, 67-yard march that resulted
in Brad Daluiso's game-winning 23-
yard field goal with 7:43 to play.
The question about Collins is: Is
he ready?
This is his first year in Fassel's
offense and he hasn't gotten many
reps since training camp ended. He
also struggled mightily last season
in Carolina and New Orleans in a
season marred by a drunken driv-
ing arrest in North Carolina.
Fassel isn't sure whether Collins
is ready, although he said he has
made a lot of progress.
"If I am going to make any
moves I want to make sure that guy
is ready to play and to improve the
play Fassel said. "I don't want to
go. backwards. I want immediate
better play from the position
"It's not an easy situation
Collins said. "I think we both real-
ize things like yesterday happen and
it doesn't necessarily mean that per-
manent change is going to come
like that at all. They wanted to ques-
tion us about some things. We went
and answered some questions and
that's it
Coles and Warrick were each ar-
rested in 1998 in separate incidents.
Coles was charged with simple
battery, a misdemeanor, in a domes-
tic incident when he allegedly
struck his stepmother outside her
home. He was suspended for last
year's opener against Texas A&M
and later served 150 hours of com-
munity service. He also was sus-
pended for this year's opener for
academic reasons.
Warrick was charged with disor-
derly conduct and resisting arrest,
both misdemeanors, for an alterca-
tion in the parking lot of a Tampa
fast-food restaurant. The charges
were eventually dropped.

CD Review
THE DIXIE CHICKS
Ryan Kennemur
Dixie Hick
They're back! The Dixie Chicks,
those plucky little blonde country
maestros that took the country by
storm a year and a half ago with their
major labd debut Wide Optn Spaces,
are here to serve up a second helping
of what they do best: looking pretty.
To the naked eye, that is what
these girls are all about, what with
their MTV Music Awards appearance,
wearing all the trendy clothes and
sporting the Courtney Love-ish black
streaks through their blonde hair. Hut
the whole glamour thing is just a cha-
rade. These girls arc the finest and
most pure thing to hit the country
music airwaves since, well, anybody
but Shania.
These gals are doing something
that not many country stars arc doing
these days, namely playing their own
instruments. These girls play banjo,
guitar, fiddle, dobro and lap steel gui-
tar. That, to me, is reason enough to
buy the new album as well as their
previous four.
Hut instead, an even better reason
to buy the new album Fly is because it
is so darn great. It sports a wide vari-
ety of styles, including soft ballads,
angry-chick-getting-even ditties, and
even gospel-bluegrass. I for one am
proud to have such a self-serving
PLAY LIKE GIRLS
band making it big. For these girls,
music is the main thing, the only
thing. It serves as a bridge between
generations and genres.
Most of the songs are standouts,
but the best song on the disk is
"Ready to Run which is the Chicks'
current radio single. You can tell that
the band doesn't care about what
Nashville audiences are used to by the
opening intro a la fiddle and tin whis-
tle. And though it sounds quite Irish,
it's one of the reasons that the Chicks'
popularity has been stable since Wide
Open Spaces began falling from the
top 10. This is the song that was fea-
tured in last summer's hit movie
Runaway llriile.
But to bank this disc's success on
just one song is irrational, especially
when the material is as good as this.
The only thing that keeps it from
being a revelation in country music is
the inclusion of the song "Goodbye
Earl which is about getting back at a
man who didn't like their cooking by
killing him. Another wasted track is
"Hole in My Head which is just lead
singer Natalie Maines shouting
need a boy like you like a hole in my
head
So obviously, don't look for these
chicks to turn into full-blown hens
anytime soon. But then again, their
carefree innocence is what makes
them so darn attractive. Well, that and
their Outfits.

SIZE DOES MATTER
Where can you shake the
most booty for your buck?
Ryan Kennemur
Senior Writer
As "the man you can probably
guess that I have quite a bit of respon-
sibility. When someone gives you a
label, or "moniker" such as that, then
it is your right and duty to do any-
thing and everything to uphold it.
So when my editor at The
Fotmhiinhaul came to me and said,
"Ryan, I need you to do something
different this week. Don't get me
wrong. I love your CD reviews and
your jaded little opinion columns, but
I need you to actually do some work
this time I started to protest.
Then she came back withRyan, if
you don't do an article about dance
floors, then your status as'the man'
will promptly be relinquished
So what would you have done,
Bubba? Before I knew it, I was going
downtown and asking club managers
if I could measure their dance floors.
Apparently, some people have had
difficulties deciding which club down-
town has the most room that caters to
booty shakin. And as a bonus to you
good readers, I decided that this arti-
cle would be a good place to let you
know about the best drink specials
downtown. So without further ado
The club with the most dance
space is the Attic! It boasts two giant
dance floors (21 'X45' and 25'X31')
and the most notable entertainment
to come to the area, headlining bands
such as Better than Ezra, 2 Skinnee J's
and most recently, the Long Beach
Dub All Stars, formerly known as
Sublime.
Their most popular drink special
is the1.50 hi-ball on Wednesday
evening, which happens to be their
Comedy Zone night.
"Buying out the Firehouse was a
really great thing because now we're
getting more and more people coming
off of Fifth Street, said Dan Heath,
assistant manager of the Attic "Also, it
gives us twice the dance space
Second Place goes to Pantana
Bob's, which features two dance areas
that together are about the size of The
Attic and a different mood altogether.
It's also home to one of the more pop-
ular drink specials.
"Every Friday night they have draft
beer for a quarter said Maura
Jackson, sophomore. "I like going
there because it's very relaxed and
they have a great DJ
Third Place is a tie between the
Cellar and the Sports Pad. They both
have fairly large dance floors, and the
Sports Pad has recently remodeled
and moved the pool tables from the
center to another room, giving it the
look of an entirely different club.
It is going to be renamed Five
Points because patrons can now
choose from five distinctly themed
rooms for dancing, playing pool,
singing karaoke and watching sports
TV.
The best drink special at The
Cellar is Thursday night penny draft,
and the Sports Pad offers "Group
Therapy which is your choice of four
shots and a pitcher of draft for $8.
"I like the Sports Pad a lot more
since they remodeled itsaid Vance
Daniels, juniorThey've got a pretty
big dance floor now and it's right in
front of the bar, so you don't have far
to walk
Now that that's out of the way, let's
talk more about drink specials,
because I know some of you out
there are quite fond of the occasional
sip.
Hooray Harry's caters to an older
crowd. This is a straight up bar,
plain and simple. Wednesday night is
50 cent night.
Cheap Shot O'Malley's has all
domestics and h i � balls for only a buck
on Thursday nights, so make sure you
pop in for a visit to get your fix.
Peasant's Cafe has a relaxed atmos-
phere that is the perfect wingman for
their Tuesday night stapleMug
Night Bring a mug with a handle but
without a spout and the bartender will
fill it to the rim for a dollar. Perfect for
those Wednesday morning exam
nights.
Wrong-Way Corrigan's has $1.50
domestics and hi -balls on Sundays.
College is all about being well-
informed. Now you can rest easy,
knowing that the Founttunhead is
doing you downtown homework. If
you don't believe it, takea tape mea-
sure with you this weekend.

CD Review
FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE
Ryan Kennemur
Senior Writer
'
I � :
With so much junk on the radio
waves these days, it's a wonder anyone
would want to make an album and
file it under "Pop 1 can only think of
a handful of groups that break
through the mold and come up with
BOUNCE BACK
release, entitled Utopia Parkway. Well,
it's out now and no one seems to be
complaining
Utopia Parkway is among the best
pop albums I have heard. Fans of
Matthew Sweet take note. There's not
a bad song on the entire album. Not
everyone is a standout, but there are
Fourtains of Wayne rebounds
something radio-friendly and more
than three chords. Artists like Elliott
Smith, Weczer and Fountains of
Wayne come to mind.
The latter, Fountains of Wayne,
have been taking their time for the
past three years trying to perfect what
they do best�hook-heavy pop. Their
first album, which was self-titled,
came out in 1996 to rave reviews. It
was a masterpiece of power pop
integrity. The band was then sought
out by Tom Hanks to write the title
song to his movkf That Thing You
Do
The band obliged and performed
the song on the soundtrack as well as
the rest of the songs the "Wonders"
were supposedly playing. The song
was a radio hit and I for one thought
that it would open a door or two and
get some of the band's other music on
the radio.
But it turns out their story ran
parallel to that of the band in the film;
namely they were one-hit wonders.
The band was vocal about their dis-
gust towards the radio stations, and
many of the band's followers didn't
know what to expect from the new
no throwaways. The band pretty
much takes up from where they left
off with their first album and stirs in
some Oasis, Kula Shaker and Jars of
Clay.
The biggest difference between
these bands and Fountains of Wayne
is that these other bands always want
to make a point. Fountains of Wayne
couldn't care less, and show that senti-
ment with songs like "Hat and Feet
which is what the singer croons about
how small he felt when his girl
dumped him, and "Laser Show
which is about a laser show that fea-
tures the music of Metallica.
A sample lyric from this says it
all. "We're gonna sit back, relax, watch
the stars with James and Jason, Kirk
and Lars
in an era of musk that thinks it
matters more than it actually does
(i.e. Matchbox 20and Limp Bizkit).
this sense of humor is a welcome
change of pace. Utopia Parkway by
Fountains of Wayne�go get it, or you
may regret it.

Long Beach Dub Al Stars attacked Ike Attic
For the many legions of Sublime
fans, myself included, the last four
years have been busy. Since Sublime
doesn't record anymore, we've spent
our days searching out old bootlegs,
striving to finish our collections.
Following the tragic and untimely
death of lead singer Bradley Nowdl,
Sublime went into a state of shock. No
other members in their band and
ensemble recorded any music and it
looked like the Sublime we came to
know and love went the way of the
Dodo.
Three years
passed. The surviving
members, Eric and Bud,
came together to form the
next incarnation of
Sublime. They decided
J against calling the new
J band "Sublime" because
they fdt that the late
t Bradley Nowdl was THE
Sublime so instead they used
the name of a troupe of D)s
out of So Cal, going with the name

BANDERAS DOES THE

Maura Ruck
Stuff Writer
Are you into gruesome, blood-
thirsty bear-like creatures feasting on
humans foragood source of enter-
tainment?
If so, then the testosterone-packed
action filmThe 13th Warrior based
on the novel called "Eaters of the
Dead" by Michael Crichton, is your
I ypc of flick. It seems that simply
because Crichton has both authored
and created such blockbusters as
"Jurassic Park"and "Disclosure"as
well as the TV show "ER he has
enough pull in Hollywood to get
essentially whatever he wants
onscreen.
The ever-so-lovely Antonio
Randeras heads the cast of a handful
of Norwegian actors as he por-
trays a 10th century Arabic
- man banished from his home-
land. Surprisingly, even to him,
Banderas is chosen as the 13th
t warrior on a mission to save a
small northern kingdom from
a the cannibalistic creatures that
t prey on their village.
As the film commences,
Randeras is introduced to the
foreign-speaking band of blondes and
proves to be a quick study, picking up
on their barbaric language in a matter
of five minutes. Although it lakes a lit-
tle longer than that to gain the band's
confidence and trust, Randeras gels
the job done and actually develops a
unique bond with the Vikings.
Director John McTiernan ("Die
Hard" and "The Thomas Crown
Affair") does a truly fabulous job of
depicting the culture and point in his-
tory with a cold-blooded efficiency.
However, it's no "Mask of Zorro
Perhaps the only similarity is
Randeras' use of a sword. Randeras
more or less supplies his audience
with an average film that is bearable

"CITIZEN KANE"
OFFERS TIMELESS DRAMA
Kenny Smith
Staff Writer
Since we are heading
towards a new millennium,
even though it doesn't really
begin until 2001, people have
begun making lists of the
best and worst things in any
given category, Many of these
people are film critics, and
they really love their lists.
Well.oneparlicular
movie is always at or near the
top of everybody's list as the
best film ever made, and
chances are you've probably
never even heard of it. The
movie is "Citizen Kane
"Kane" was produced,
directed and co-written in 1941by
Orson Welles, who also plays the title
character. I could write a book on all
the things that make this movie great:
the acting, cinematography.sccnery,
symbolism and the list goes on. Rut
since I am only granted a small seg-
ment of this section I will then concen-
trate on the thing that usually makes us
go to movies in the first place. No, not
the special effects, but the story of the
JAPANESE ANIMATION
DRAWS A DEVOTED CROWD
Maura Buck
Staff Writer
We are all familiar with "Speed
Racer we loved "Robotech"growing
up, and more recently we've seen car-
toons such as "Dragon Ball "and
"Pokeman" become increasingly popu-
lar in America. These are all products
of Japanese animation, a media
through which the Japanese have been
producing films and television shows
of all genres for years.
It's also known as aniine, ("ANN-
ee-MAY") and it's hotter than ever!
Students may not know that there is an
organization at our school that fosters
the creativity of the Japanese.
SAGA (or the "School of Anything
Goes An ime") is the acronym for the
organization that, over a three-year
period, has grown to
approximately 40 paying
members.
"We offer something
different than what
people at ECU are

McNully, execu-
tive committee
chair of SAGA.

"Citizen Kane" begins with a scene
in which Kane is on his deathbed

dies he says one word: "RosebudThis

reporter played by William Alland is
sent out to discover what Kane meant
when he uttered that word, to find out

and Robbie Proseus
joined together and
developed what is
now known as SAGA.
"Our goal is to
deliver the best Japanese

bers We started in April
1996 and have only been
getting stronger said
Andre Germain, vice presi-
dent and co-founder.
Truly, it is the
enthusiasm and dedication
of the officers and members
that make the organization
work. Although anime is
recognized across the coun-
try, organizations such as
SAGA cannot be found
everywhere, especially
on college campuses.
Typically, the
group meets

ond floor of
One i merest ing thing about Alland
is that we never see his face until the
very end of the movie, after he's learned
everything there is to learn about
Charles Foster Kane. Alland goes
around and talks to the people who
knew Kane best, his friends.
The audience is told that Kane was
born to a family in Colorado in 1871,
where, if luck hadn't come by he
would've probably just been another
country bumpkin. His family's house
was built near an abandoned mine
where gold was recently discovered.
Kane's mother lets a banker adopt
him to take him to the city so he won't
have to live in, Well, the siicks.
Kane grows up rich and spoiled, get-
ting kicked out of the best universities
and loving every second of it. When he
gets control of his money at age 25 he
takes control of a failing newspaper in
New York City. Pouring his money into
this paper, he and his associates build
the Inquirer until it has posts in every
major city in the country.
Loosely based on the real-life news-
paper tycoon William Randolph Hurst,
Charles Foster Kane's character wields
incredible power as the editor of this
newspaper chain. He prints basically
what he wants to print, starting the War
with Spain in 1898 and helping the US
attain the Panama Canal.

not only discusses the art that has a
style of its own, but also views various
works of Japanese animation, includ-
ing subject matter like drama, science
fiction, comedy and fantasy.
All ECU students are welcome to
attend any meeting.
"We like to have fun; it's like a
three-hour release from the grind of
class work McNully said, with regard
to one of the benefits of the dub.
After the second visit, the officers
ask for a $5 membership fee each
semester, at which point they grant the
new member voting privileges. The fee
goes towards new tapes, T-shirts and
membership cards, in addition to help-
ing the dub maintain operation.

meetings; the organization is also
responsible for hosting anime festivals

ing spring semester.

enough, showed 30 straight hours of

Scandinavian actors would be all but
appealing to view on the big screen.
The plot is neither fast-paced nor
captivating I found myself longing for
the ending throughout the middle
portion of the movie.as it seems to
drag on. It offers one hour and 43
minutes of complete gore, including a
dual scene that leads to one soldier
"losing his head literally.
Truthfully, the film falls short
where it really counts: in the final
scenes. The scenes preceding the final
confrontation are actually tar more
interesting than the last few minutes.
For example, when a mysterious
tribe of saw-toothed savages are final-
ly revealed in their underground cave
carved by an incredible waterfall, the
entire audience is shocked by the
scene.
Overall, the plot is an interesting
concept, and the scenery is quite spec-

This gave the group an opportuni-
ty to view longer works that they were
otherwise unable to view during a
normal three-hour session, as well as
large parts of series and classic anime
movies.
SAGA officers are always finding
new and interesting series to keep
members happy.
"(The group tries to expose peo-
ple to anime that you can't get here in
the USsaid Kevin Jordan, president
of SAGA.
Reportedly, the group will be rep-
resentative at several regional conven-
tions this year. The first is called

the second is "Neko-Con" (Japanese
lor cat), that will be held in Virginia

tacular. But, when you come right
down to it, the picture is both drawn-
out and honestly grotesque. It ranks, in
terms of brutality, between the all-too-
real wartime scenes of "Saving Private
Ryan" and the scene where Kevin
Cost ner takes a bite out of the buffalo
heart in "Dances with Wolves.
Although those movies were also
violent, they seemed to justify their
means through characterization and
plot. Here, however, neither the charac-
ters nor the plot are strong enough to
carry the themes of this movie. It
seems to appeal more to the 11 -year-
old boy deep in the psyche of all
males, with little to offer females.
Oh, and if your boyfriend tries to
tell you that it is also a romantic film
with a passionate relationship between
Randeras and a female character in
the film, believe me, he's lying!

There is also a big convention
known as Animazement in Raleigh in
March of 2000 that SAGA members
are extremely excited about. The con-
ventions usually feature special guests
from the anime field, costume con-
tests, karaoke and much more.

Sublime fan and for these guyj to
make the trek all the way out to the
East Coast for a show was just too
much for me to handle.
It looked like I'd be able to interview
Ras, the band's new guitarist and
vocalist. Obviously on some kind of
powerful narcotic, Ras was not the
prime interviewee. I kept trying to get
an answer out of him but he took 20
minutes just to get the sounds out of
his mouth to pronounce "hello dude
So the band came out to a raucous
ovation by the crowd and started right
into the jams. Surprisingly they played
an hour and 15 minute set before (he
break and then started it back up
again.
It truly was a memorable night for
any fan in attendance. They went
through the Sublime mainstays and
played every song from their new
album Right Back. They filled the night
with three hours of down-to-earth
reggae and punk.
Since their CD wasn't completely
ready yet, they had pre-release copies
of the "Trailer Ras" single for distribu-
tion; lucky for us it has since come out
so I will now delve into its inner
dimensions to parlay a bit of relevant
info about its composition, audible
tendencies, and quality.
I don't know if I was apprehensive
about hearing new stuff from these
guys, or what, but I was actually a little
curious about how the new band
members would affect the sound. My
big question was how they could add
to the base that Sublime had laid
down before them.

working man, Kane shows no mercy
towards the powerful. As an editor, he
attempts to right society's wrongs. But
failures in both a run at public office
and his first marriage start a downhill
spiral from which Kane can never
recover.
It's a story of the triurnph and
tragedy of a man who spent his life try-
ing to get people to love him.either
willingly or by force, but without suc-
cess. He spends his life starting things
but never finishing them, and even the
house he dies in, the opulent Xanadu
(named after Kubla Khan's palace) was
never completed.
What's "Rosebud?" I'm not telling
you. Besides if you just keep your eyes
open while you watch TV, somebody is
entity from the Sublime of the past.
With a fuller sound, the result of the
implementation of four new instru-
ments, they take the original sound to
new heights. The laid back reggae jam
"Sensi"and the new single "Trailer
Ras"are definite hits.
There is only one truly bad song on
the CD. Meaning wdl, the band did an
acoustic cover of the Sublime punk
dassic "Saw Red which is truly
hideous. It is pure poo-poo with muck
from the Tar River spread on it. Other
songs, such as "Long Beach Dub" and
"Rosarito"show the newfound diversi-
ty of sound that these guys now pos-
sess. Get the CD, now.
