itures J
Carolyn Herold
In celebration of Earth Science
week, Oct. 10-16, professor Don
Neal and the Sigma Gamma Epsi-
Honor Society is displaying a
logical display on the second
floor of Joyner Library.
The exhibit includes various
maps, pictures, samples and books.
There are 17 geological books and
reprints of faculty research as well.
The focal point of the exhibit is
a sculpture titled "Piece of Time
done by Joseph Winter in 1995.
There is a generalized geographi-
cal map of N.C. showing the distri-
bution of rock types throughout the
state. There is also a physiography
map and a geological time scale map
that shows the changes that the
state has undergone since the Pre-
cambrian era.
There are samples of many rocks
and minerals from around the area,
including granite, emerald, am-
ffeyst and pyrite, as well as fossil-
ized shells, sharks' teeth and petri-
fied wood.
The exhibit also features photo-
graphs of ECU geology students
hard at work.
This year Earth Science Week
is very timely, given the recent
flooding said Stephen Culver, de-
partment chair of geology.
Earth Science Week was written
into congressional record last year.
The purpose of Earth Science Week
is to get the importance of the earth
sciences out to the general public.
TARBORO, N.C. (AP)�Life has grown stale for the
weary citizens of the Tarboro High School emergency
shelter, where 300 people have been stuck since Hurri-
cane Floyd unleashed its deadly floodwaters.
While praising The Red Cross for attending to their
basic needs, many of these people clearly craved their
privacy and a few small pleasures by Wednesday
"It's been aggravation said Monzell Battle of
Princevllle, who has lived in the shelter off and on for
two full weeks.
"Ifs been the worst thing of my life he said. "You
can't go home. You go to work musty because you can't
get a good shower
Red Cross officials are battling rumors that the shel-
ter will close. Outside the principal's office is a hand-
lettered sign that reads: "Rumor control. This shelter
IS NOT closing. Also we have no strollers
The shelter population hovered around 300
Wednesday, down from a peak population of 3,000.
About 1,500 people remained in 18 American Red Cross
shelters in eastern North Carolina on Wednesday.
The Red Cross officials plan to consolidate the shel-
ters in Tarboro, and move people who still need a place
to stay into the high school gymnasium before
Edgecombe County schools open Monday.
About 8,000 school children have been out of class
since Sept. 15.
"The shelters will be available until all the clients
are placed somewhere said Red Cross spokeswoman
Merle Glenn.
Shelter services include daily meals (lunch was
beans, rice and fruit cocktail), sleeping quarters, medi-
cal assistance and information on disaster recovery.
"It's a roof over our heads said Teresa Barnes of
Tarboro. She and her family of about 14 people were
flooded out of their mobile homes at Lakeside Trailer
Park in Tarboro on Sept. 16.

Expert to speak about suicidal criminals
; UNC-Charlotte�Faculty member Vivian Lord has been asked to speak
; at a national FBI conference on the rare, but occurring attempts of people
; purposely trying to be killed by law enforcement officers.
! d'an assistant professor In the Department of Criminal Justice, has
. done considerable research on law enforcement assisted suicide, also called
. suicide by cop She is one of about 60 national and international ex-
. perts chosen to present information at the conference and will be discuss-
. mg the characteristics of those attempting suicide and the effectiveness of
; certain intervention tactics.
Suicide by cop' occurs when a person confronted by a law enforce-
I ment officer either voices his desire to be killed by the officer andor makes
; movements, such as pointing weapons at the officer or a hostage, run-
;ning at the officer with weapons or throwing weapons at the officer
Lord explained.
; As part of her research, Lord has looked at records from 32 county and
municipal law enforcement agencies in NC. Between 1991-1998, these
agencies reported 64 cases of attempted suicide by cop. The cases included
.16 subjects killed by officers, five suicides committed during standoffs
with police, and 43 attempts in which officers negotiated a surrender or
managed to restrain the subjects.
In most cases where officers had time and an opportunity to negotiate
With the subject, the confrontation ended with no injury to the subject.
Jn many of the cases, however, officers were attacked without warning
&nd only had time to protect themselves.
"This is not to say that law enforcement officers can, in any way, con-
trol the choices that the subject makes Lord said. "But in those cases
yvhere the subject was willing to negotiate and discuss his problems, the
Subject was usually restrained without harm. Ultimately, only the subject
can decide if he will use a weapon to confront officers and if he will force
officers to use their weapons
; Even though suicide by cop is a relatively new phenomenon in
; terms of academic research, more and more law enforcement agencies
are recognizing it as a potential motivation of people in standoffs with
; "More research needs to be done, but law enforcement officers are
becoming aware that they are sometimes seen as instruments by a sui-
oidal person Lord said.

area of negotiation approaches, will be a great benefit to officers

Machine demonstrates
superhuman speech recognition abilities
V of Southern California�Biomedical engineers have created the
world's first machine system that can recognize spoken words better than
humans can. A fundamental rethinking of a long-underperforming com-
puter architecture led to their achievement.
The system might soon facilitate voice control of computers and other
machines, help the deaf, aid air traffic controllers and others who must
understand speech in noisy environments, and instantly produce clean
transcripts of conversations, identifying each of the speakers. The U.S.
Navy, which listens for the sounds of submarines in the hubbub of the
open seas, is another possible user.
Potentially, the system's novel underlying principles could have appli-
cations in such medical areas as patient monitoring and the reading of
In benchmark testing using just a few spoken words, USC's Berger-
Liaw Neural Network Speaker Independent Speech Recognition System
not only bested all existing computer speech recognition systems but out-
performed the keenest human ears.
Neural nets are computing devices that mimic the way brains process
Speaker-independent systems can recognize a word no matter who or
what pronounces it. No previous speaker-independent computer system
has ever outperformed humans in recognizing spoken language, even in
very small test bases, says system co-designer Theodore W. Berger, a pro-
fessor of biomedical engineering in the USC School of Engineering.

A hurricane coming to a town near you SPORTS
from page 7
Dr. David Lawrence
This is a shorter version of
Lawrence's original article:
For most of us, Floyd is the
"storm of the century but in fact,
Floyd is only the latest large storm
In a series of devastating hurricanes.
What geologists understand from
studying both the history of hurri-
canes and the migration of rivers
and barrier islands is that flooding
is inevitable.
Torrential rain is obviously the
cause of river flooding, but wind-
driven storm surges and waves flood
barrier islands during hurricanes.
Once a populated island,
Shackleford Banks holds the evi-
dence of the effect of waves riding
on a large storm surge. The little
communities of Mullet Shore,
Guthries Lump and Diamond City
are all gone now. Only a few brick
foundations and sentinel pipes are
to be found on Shackleford Banks,
MMemories of the people that lived
there before "San Ciriaco the great
hurricane of Aug. 17,1899.
During the same year, the Hal-
loween Day hurricane blew ashore
In Brunswick County, destroying
many homes in Southport,
Jvilmington and Wrightsville
. Beach. The hurricane then headed
north past Greenville, to just west
pf Norfolk, following much the
' .same path as Hurricane Floyd did
"mis year.
� t In fact, hurricanes have been fol-
' towing the same pathway for a long
"time: Starting in the period when
?$yrricanes were first adequately re-
t"ported, Cape Fear saw the landfall
a hurricane in 1876, which went
aight north through Greenville,
rtually the same thing happened
Jm 1879, 1881, 1883, 1893, 1894,
. 1897,1899,1904,1916,1918,1924,
? I
1954, 1955 (twice), 1956, 1960,
1971,1984,1986,1988 (twice) and
1998. Dennis and Floyd were just
the last storms in a string of unwel-
come visitors.
On Oct. 15, 1954, Hurricane
Hazel's eye came ashore at the South
CarolinaNorth Carolina border,
with a storm surge of 18 feet above
mean low water, during the high-
est tide of the year. Oak Island, near
Wilmington, was battered this year
during Floyd and Dennis. But dur-
ing Hazel, Oak Island suffered 140-
mph winds. Fayetteville reported
gusts of 120 mph and Kinston 120
Eight to 10 inches of rain fell
over much of central North Caro-
lina and Virginia. By the time Ha-
zel got to Canada the storm still
managed to drop seven inches of
rain, and 110-mph gusts blew in
Ontario. One-third of the buildings
from Greensboro to the coast were
reported to have suffered damage.
Numerous bridges were washed out.
So Hazel was like Floyd, but with
far worse winds and with flooded
areas from South Carolina to
Canada. After Hazel, people prob-
ably thought the "storm of the cen-
tury" had come and gone, and they
could now rest and rebuild.
But the very next year, on Aug.
12, 1955, a little hurricane named
Connie soaked eastern North Caro-
lina with rain. Then only five days
later, Hurricane Diane came ashore
at Wilmington and flooded many
areas in eastern North Carolina and
other states. As a result, Diane was
called the first "billion-dollar hurri-
For this and the next few years,
the news is not good. William Gray,
of Colorado State University and
Christopher Landsea of the Na-
tional Oceanographic and Atmo-
spheric Administration think that
we have entered a period of more
intense hurricane activity, similar
to that of the time period between
1940 and 1960. They base this pre-
diction on many factors, two of
which are an increase in rainfall in
West Africa, and cooler water in the
Eastern Pacific.
So what can we do in the face
of all this? Dams and levees may
control some floods, but they do
not prevent them. People who
build on barrier islands normally
know they are building temporary
buildings on shifting sand.
Yet sadly, people building on
that nice flat ground next to a
stream or a river were not there the
last time the river flooded. Flood
plains are great places for parks or
even parking lots, but they are not
great places for houses and busi-
nesses. Flood plains are, after all,
part of the river system.
Though we cannot just sud-
denly move out of all the flood-
plains in the US, we could start a
long-term policy of slowly convert-
ing the flood plains to uses as parks
and reducing the number and
value of buildings exposed to
We could also require, such as
in Galveston, Texas, all buildings
be built up above the storm surge
on barrier islands, and have totally
unoccupied ground levels. Real es-
tate agents say that the three most
important factors in the value of a
house are location, location and
location. On a barrier island, the
three safety factors are elevation,
elevation and solid building con-
As much as we can, we must
quit playing poker on the flood
plains and on the barrier islands.

will run on Thursday, Oct. 14.

The flux of so many types of
spirituality paves a large highway that
yields access to a multitude of
different beliefs, religions and spiritual
Is there spirituality on campus? If there is, you might not see it for a
number of reasons, ranging from laws to personal beliefs. Being associ-
ated with a college campus adds to one's whole spirituality. We as a com-
munity are a gigantic melting pot of ideas and beliefs which can be both
a benefit as well as a burden.
The flux of so many types of spirituality paves a large highway that
yields access to a multitude of different beliefs, religions and spiritual doc-
trines. This "melting pot" could be extremely helpful to those who are still
trying to figure out their own personal beliefs. One could probably grab
10 different people who all follow a different religion; it's like having the
Encyclopedia Religicana on a bookshelf.
Of course there are down sides to the diversity. Different ethnicities
suffer the wrath of racism, and religions have spurred holy wars, so to
Spirituality should be a personal issue that is right for you and you
alone. Others may share your beliefs to a point, but in the end they will
always affect that person differently than you. Some of your peers may
not have religious beliefs at all, yet this does not mean that they have an
absence of spirituality.
Another advantage of being on a college campus is the wealth of re-
sources and organizations based on different religions. There are a few
religious student centers that conduct activities to help students better
themselves spiritually. There are also classes that teach students more about
specific spiritual doctrines.
The main thorn that hinders different spiritual teachings in a public
school setting is the law of separation of church and state declaring that it
is unlawful to intermingle school teachings with religious teachings.
Whether we consider ourselves to be fueled by spirituality or not, it is
almost assured, as the bumper sticker says, that "as long as there are tests,
there will be prayer in school

am not the guy at the NASCAR race.
My sense of value will never drop
that low.
Ticket distribution lacks organization
Dear Editor,
I stood in line for tickets to the
ECU vs. NC State football game this
morning. I arrived at 6:30 a.m and
the line was already pretty long. As
soon I got there I knew there were
going to be problems.
First off, there were no ropes to
designate where the lines should
have been. Second, there were no
signs posted regarding ticket pric-
ing or availability. This led to end-
.less rumors throughout the crowd.
;Then, when the staff at the Ticket
Office decided to start handing out
tickets, they only opened two of the
three windows.
I do not know whose bright idea
this was, but nevertheless that's
� what happened. I waited for what
seemed like an eternity before the
line ever moved. Finally, I saw the
problem. One person was at the
front of the line getting tickets for
SO of his closest friends. This oc-
curred several times throughout the
Since there were no boundaries,
the line began to turn into a
mob. People who got tickets had no
way to leave the windows, causing
even more of a hold up. Next, a
campus police officer, who will re-
main nameless, announced that the
new Pirate statue was going to be
moved in shortly and that the
people in the back of the line would
have to move over until the statue
was positioned.
This plan would have worked
fine, however, the end-of-the-line-
dwellers decided that instead of
moving over they were going to
move to the front of the line. See-
ing this move, the police officers
ust stood back and watched. They
even moved to the other side of the
line! It would have only taken one
officer to stand there and block the
students. Their salaries are coming
from our tuition and 1 expect them
to work!
Not only had they let students
break in line, but they prevented
students who had been in line for
hours from getting the better seats.
While the students from the back
were trying to merge into my line,
the Ticket Office decided that now
would be a good time to open up
that third window.
After what those students had
done, they were rewarded by hav-
ing a window opened up right
where they were standing. Finally,
at 10:20 a.m I was given section
15 seats while a student who was
just ahead of me got 16. Had it not
been for the loonies that broke in
line, I would have gotten the better
The Athletic Ticket Office
should seriously consider rethink-
ing the way they handle these situ-
ations. I have a few
suggestions: First: get some rope to
designate the lines. Second: open up
all the ticket windows, even the
ones on the inside. Third: do not
reward people who break in line.
Fourth: have police officers on hand
who are willing to exercise a little
crowd control. Fifth: have a line set
aside for group tickets, and sixth:
think ahead!
Paul Russell
Heavy athletic funding helps whole school
Marvelle Sullivan
There is quite a bit ot hostility
associated with the massive fund-
ing channeled into college athlet-
ics, and valid points abound for
both sides of the issue. However,
ECU football�despite the crushing
loss against Southern Mississippi
this past Saturday�is experiencing
one of its most successful seasons
in the school's history.
This success is achieving for the
school exactly what advocates of
heavy funding claimed it would. It's
really hard to understand the effects
of being a top Division I football
university until the potential is re-
alized in the way that is occurring
this season.
Even if the benefits are under-
stood, it is difficult for many people
to concede to an academic entity,
like a university, giving so much
money to athletics rather than edu-
cational programs. While this is
understandable, three main reasons
make it very evident why athletic
funding should continue, and
moreover, increasingly continue.
The first reason is the recogni-
tion factor that a winning team and
an exciting season brings to a uni-
versity. After the astounding Miami
win in Raleigh, ECU was put on the
map. I fully realized the impact of
the Miami victory when my grand-
parents called me to ask questions
about the team, the school, and
about visiting me for one of our
home games.
An important point, though, is
that people aren't just finding out
about ECU football, they are recog-
nizing our school in a positive way.
It's hard to put a price tag on na-
tional recognition.
The second reason, and perhaps
a frequently overlooked one, regards
the academic advantage. High
school students want to attend
schools with winning teams. This
could be an admissions edge for
ECU. We can't compete on certain
levels like central location, private
school benefits, or even good
weather for that matter, but if the
chancellor wants to increase the
enrollment to 25,000 students, ECU
needs a competitive edge. This can
be attained by having both excellent
athletic and academic programs.
Also, no one can deny that the
notoriety athletics brings extendslo
graduate school admissions both for
our school and for our students aj
plying to other schools.
The third, and most important
reason, even though no one waists
to admit it, is all about the morfey
involved. The amount of money
and advertising involved in bovvl
games is phenomenal. Alumpi
groups and organizations also tend
to contribute more when ECU is,Tm
the limelight. Groups like the Pirate
Club are exactly the reason wny,
relative to alumni support, 'we
should make athletics a priority1
In a way, it is disheartening that
educational programs, new libraries
and academic research doesn't pro-
duce the excitement, recognition
and external funding that athletic
programs, football statistics, and
bowl games do, but that's just the
reality of the situation.
Admitting it is the first step, as
we can no longer live in denial
about the truth of the matter. A win
for the team is a win for the school,
so measures should be taken to en-
courage that streak. Go Pirates!
Attempts to ban books shocking, horrible
Chris Sachs
As most of you may or may not
know, Sept. 25-Oct. 2 was Banned
Book Week. This is an annual event
that works to make people aware of
the books that have been banned
or challenged, and brings to light
the attempts of certain groups to
control what books folks can or can-
not read or borrow from libraries.
Now when I read this 1 was
floored. There are actual groups out
there trying to get books banned. I
asked myself if this could be real.
So I did a little digging and hit the
Internet and what I found was
amazing�there are dozens of
groups out there wanting to ban
thousands of books! Books that you
and I would never in a million years
think of as needing to be banned.
Groups like the Family Friendly
Libraries Association and the Ameri-
can Family Association and the Na-
tional Organization for Women are
at the forefront of this movement
and have support from all over the
world. Now as college students and
future parents you should be scared,
REALLY scared. This is mighty dan-
gerous ground these people are
stomping on and I had to look into
this a bit further.
I looked at the lists of books
these psychopaths want banned
and read the little captions under-
neath, which gave explanations of
why they should be banned. Here
are some of the books these morons
want banned: Harry Potter books,
Canterbury Tales, Charlie and the
Chocolate Factory, Beloved,
Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, The
Bell Jar, The Awakening, James and
the Giant Peach and on and on and
on. Are these people out of their
Look at some of the reasons they
want these books banned: Alex
Haley's The Autobiography of
Malcolm X because "it presents a
racist view of white people and
"promotes violence All of John
Grisham's books because of their
"sexually explicit writings and vio-
lence And get this: The Alabama
State Text Committee wants The
Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
banned because it is "a real downer
These people are really screwed up.
These pious, conservative, teeto-
talers�with nothing better to do
than find the nonexistent hidden
evils in between the lines of some
of the greatest works of literature
ever written�say they want to pro-
tect their children from the horrors
of the world and keep traditional
family values. What a bunch of gar-
bage. They must think their kids are
really stupid. These people should
be banned.
Now the makeup of the vast
majority of these idiotic groups are
white, middle-class, Judeo-Christian
women, but there are a good num-
ber of people representing groups of
all kinds. The ACLU wants books
like Tom Sawyer and The Adven-
tures of Huckleberry Finn banned
because of Huck's recurrent use of
the word "nigger" and the way sla-
very is part of everyday life. (By the
way, these people don't seem too
eager to mention the passage in the
book where Huck, who believe1, sla-
very is God's good will, decides to
spend eternity in hell rather than
turn Jim in.)
Now if these diluted mothers
had their way we would all be car-
rying bibles around and reading
nothing but books one would And
in the gift shop at Heritage USA. So
I thought about it: The Bible is a
book and it's not banned, so what's
in there that is so pure and good
that it didn't make the list? Why is
the Bible not under scrutiny? I, be-
ing an atheist, decided to read some
of the Bible and see what was in
I read a few hundred pages and
did some research and I must say, I
was shocked. The stuff in that book
was horrible. Do parents really want
their kids to read that trash? Look
at just a few of the things I found:
Incest: the sexual Intercourse of
Lot by his two daughters. Genesis
Intermarriage: brother and sister
tying the knot. Genesis 20:12
Rape of a half-sister by her own
brother: 2 Samuel 13:1-19
Rape of men by other men: Gen-
esis 19:5

Baby Boom of the 1950s. According
to Dr. Bob Edwards, assistant pro-
fessor of psychology, the term came
about in the late 1980s when mem-

What does spirituality mean to you? Although not everyone
claims a particular faith or creed as their own, spirituality does
play a major role in some students' lives.
The average college student lives in a world of deadlines, projects
and pending disaster. ' ?.
"Spirituality can be a beneficial coping factor said Al Smith,
assistant-director for the Center of Counseling and Student
Depending on the perspective that one is taking, prayer can be
"Physiologically, prayer encourages relaxation Smith said "It is
difficult to research the correlation between the relationship to a
higher being and the effect that it has on an individual, but it is
believed to have a calming effect. It also aids in stress relief
"A lot of college students have a strong, silent faith, but only about
.5 percent of all of the people we see come in to talk about
spirituality said Father Raul Vaeth of the Newman Student
Center. Their, faith often wastes and wanes throughout college
There are a variety of reasons why faith changes in its intensity
during college.
"Typically, spirituality is on the back burner because students
have a lot of other distractions in their lives Vaeth said.
For those who do decide to define spirituality and pursue it in
their lives, spirituality can have positive effects besides relieving
It is important for students to develop their own realistic spirituality
that is not based upon a false.notion of God Vaeth said.
"Spirituality brings about a fullness of life and gives life meaning.
For me, spirituality has given a whole new meaning to life
Vaeth was not alone in believing that a defined spirituality does
have power in an individual's life.
"Spirituality helps a person understand themselves as well as
the fact that they are one among many said Bob Clyde, Baptist
campus minister "Psychotherapy can help a person
understand themselves more in-depth as well as who they
really are, but spirituality is what sends you out to help others
as well as knowing yourself
The Newman Center on campus averages 80-100 people in
attendance on Sundays, and the Baptist Student Union has
about 40 regularly in attendance for their faith-building events
"Most of the students are regulars, but there are several who
come and go as they can Vaeth said.
There are many factors that determine the number of students
who attend religious functions and the way in which people
choose to show their spirituality. Clyde, who has been a campus
minister since 1971, has noticed trends that affect the worship
practices of the students.
"The forms of spirituality vary) from decade to decade Clyde
Spirituality has had a variety of effects in people's lives. Clyde
has known students who have spent almost every other
weekend ministering to young people. One artist whom he
knew spent an afternoon talking to a Mexican girl, and after
the experience, the girl's artistic style changed from abstract
black and white to color scenes involving people.
Another man he knew shaved his head and began wearing
robes. He meditated for an hour every day to become closer
to God. Because each individual chose to redefine his or her
own spirituality, their lives were changed.
According to Clyde, in The Denial of Death, by Earnest Becker,
everyone searches their whole life in order to become a self-
actualized person. After 65 years, when one has finally achieved
his or her goal of becoming a self-actualized person, he or she
will look into the mirror and realize the double tragedy of the
moment-that it is now too late because they are faced with
their own mortality.
"Man is half-animal and half-angel and we are continually off-
balance Clyde said. "We need something to balance
ourselves, and spirituality is it.
"A college campus is a world of pure potential, and people are
working with lives made of malleable clay. It is a time to explore
and experiment.
"At any given time, there may be someone on campus who
has the potential to become great spiritually. I encourage every
student to develop their faith and discover their own potential

Before long, ECU life will be in'
terrupted by the usual sounds of
autumn: coughs, sneezes and
sniffles. The beginning of cold ancf
flu season is here, and since most
students will be exposed to it, famil-
iarizing oneself with the symptoms'
and preventative care is the first step'
to avoid getting sick.
Sutdent Heathsees many about coldSi
and the flu. (photo by Robin Vuchnich)
One of the most predominant,
questions people ask around this
time of year is, "How do I know if it
is the flu or just a cold?" When a
person has the flu, generally a high
temperature for three to four days
will be followed by headache, aches
and pains, chest discomfort and
coughs. A flu can also lead to bron-
chitis or pneumonia. A person with
a cold, on the other hand, usually
does not have a temperature or
headaches, but can suffer from
stuffy nose, sore throat and sneez-
ing. A cold can also lead to sinus
congestion and earaches.
Freshman Katie Berry suffers
from annual colds that begin with
"dizziness, watery, burning eyes and
a running nose
"It usually takes me about two
weeks to get over a cold Berry said.
Freshman Kristin Brbwn said she
catches a cold about twice every six
"I usually have a stuffy nose,
cough and sore throat Brown said.
There isn't an absolute preven-
tion for the common cold; however,
according to Dr. Betty Straub of
Health Promotion and Well Being,
there are steps you can take to mini-
mize your chances of catching a

Permanent cosmetics growing in popularity
Women of all ages
choose their look for life
Jennifer Brown
There is now makeup that never smudges, smears
or washes off, eyeliner that never has to be reapplied,
and the necessity of waking up every morning and not
having to "worry about putting on a face" can be elimi-
nated. Permanent cosmetics is now possible, and for
many, a necessity.
While most women can not imagine living the rest
of their lives with the same color makeup on, perma-
nent cosmetics are fast becoming a fashion trend in
Europe and parts of the US.
According to Sherry L. Hackett, director of the Per-
manent Cosmetics Institute in Santa Monica, Ca the
procedure is similar to getting a tattoo.
"It's similar) except that pigments specifically cre-
ated for use on the face are implanted into the skin,
rather than the use of inks and dyes Hackett said.
Before permanent cosmetics were applied.
For most women, permanent cosmetics would cut
10-15 minutes off a typical morning routine, and that
is appealing.
"Cleopatra was probably the first woman to have
permanent eyeliner tattooed on her eyelids Hackett
Cosmetic tattooing actually began in 1832 with the
discovery of electromagnetism. Today, women of all
ages can get eyebrows, eyeliner, lip color, lash enhance-
ment, scar camouflages, hair Imitations and beauty
( marks implanted for an average cost of about $500,

depending on where you have it done. At Hackett's,
studio, most clients have the eyebrow and eyeliner pro
cedures instead of the lip liner or full lip color.
According to Mandy Vincent, a sales representative
at the Belk Clinique counter in Greenville's Plaza mall
although permanent cosmetics would be cheaper in j
the long run, she wouldn't recommend it to anyone. '
"You would never be able to take it off or change
colors Vincent said. '

Grandparent dolls look like the real thing miscellanea
passers-by, It would appear Cathie
arid Dennis Schurman have a con-
stant party going on in their living
Seated on their couch, chairs
and even the coffee table, are what
appears to be a spry bunch of se-
nior citizens. But on closer inspec-
tion, these house guests aren't what
they seem.
They're dolls, made to look like
your beloved "Paw-Paw" and "Me-
Schurman makes these life-size
grandma and grandpa dolls, com-
plete with matching outfits and
other finishing touches.
"People drive by and see them
through the window'Schurman
said. "We've sold five of them to
people who knocked on the door
because they saw them sitting here
in the living room
The original model for the dolls
was her own 100-year-old grandma,
Schurman soon became im-
mersed in her new hobby. "I don't
sleep at night, so I've been staying
up and doing this for a couple of
months said Schurman. "I used to
have a clean house, but now there's
little bits of hair and glue all over. I
don't even bother trying to clean
What makes her creations
unique is attention to detail.
Like your own grandparents, no
two dolls are alike. Schurman injects
the dolls with personality by nam-
ing them. Also, each comes with an
adoption tag listing pertinent infor-
mation, such as favorite foods and
TV shows.
"Lots of people look for a spe-
cific name, but I tell them they can
name them whatever they want
Schurman said. "I don't get it, but
that's the way a lot of people like to
pick them out
The bodies are fashioned from
an intricate construction of wood,
foam, PVC pipe and other materi-
als. The arms are made from pad-
ded wire, making them posable. For
their faces, Schurman paints on a
beatific expression and gives them
three-dimensional wooden noses.
The result is a doll that moves
very much like a real person.
As a finishing touch, she adds
gray hair and chic granny glasses.
"I buy old glasses wherever I can
find them. Then, to make them fit,
I cut the (temples) off Well, I was
doing a bunch of them one night
and I cut my own glasses off
Some customers like to buy just
the doll and dress it themselves. But
for those who want the works,
Schurman pulls out all the stops.
She follows three basic rules of
fashion: accessorize, accessorize,
accessorize. Each doll's ensemble is
designed around a specially chosen
hat. From there, Schurman
matches shoes, costume jewelry,
scarves and gloves.
The doll's outfit decides the
price. The base rate is $167 but ex-
pensive outfits or accessories can
make it higher. For example, one
grandma wears a mink hat and
stole, so it will sell for almost $300.
Part of each doll's uniqueness
also lies in what it's "doing One
grandma is planted firmly on the
couch, umbrella in hand, as if she's
ready to go shopping. Next to her, a
grandpa sits poised, waiting to take
a Sunday drive in the country.
Schurman's favorite holds a
handkerchief to her lips, as if she's
stifling a giggle. Sitting on the cof-
fee table, one grandma balances a tea
cup and saucer as the one next to
her holds an open Bible and raises
her hand.
"People pull on everything
Schurman said. "They can't get
enough of them. "When we took
them down to Amana, we sold 16 or
17. Everyone was so interested, you
couldn't even get near the tables
Though she does other crafts, she
doesn't think she'll tire of making
the dolls soon. Currently, she's plan-
ning a trip to Memphis, Tenn to
search for hats. She's also combing
the Cedar Valley in search of vintage
clothing and jewelry.
"I can't stand doing the same old
thing Schurman said. "The grand-
mas are too much fun. I hope they
keep selling like they have
from page 6
"When people are not subjected
to the positive side of young people
they tend to believe the negative
stereotype said Marlene Villar,
"People these days are more
likely to be pierced and tattooed
Edwards said. "But I think that it is
more fashion than active rebellion.
The label 'Gen X' makes everyone
it applies to seem the same but there
are differences
"I feel everybody's trying to be
different from people before them
said Brian Hoggard, senior. "But
some people take it to extremes
Some think the ways in which
today's generation expresses itself
are no different from the ways of
previous generations.
"The tattoos and piercings are
just phases said Mark Larado, jun-
ior. "Forty years down the road we'll
be complaining about the same type
of things
"Body piercing and tattooing is
the same as 'flower power' was in
the 1960s and disco was in the
1970s Roedersaid. "Every genera-
tion will do different things
Despite what older generations
say, these Gen X stereotypes do not
represent the majority of students.
"I don't think the stereotype
has affected ECU students
Edwards said. "Every year we get
different types of students that are
more computer-oriented with dif-
ferent types of interests and aspi-
rations. They have a very socioeco-
nomic background and are the same
as students around the country.
"I haven't seen any change here
in students in four years as far as
anything related to the label
Regardless of attempts at indi-
viduality, Gen X'ers will continue to
struggle with the stereotypical

For the flu, an annual flu vacci-
nations are available for prevention.
Heather Zophy, health educator in
the Student Health Center, said the
center is getting ready to have their
annual Flu Outreach, Nov. 3-4, lo-
cated in front of the Wright Place.
The Center will set up a booth
where flu shots will be adminis-
"It is $S for students and $10 for
non-students Zophy said. "They
can pay up front or have it put on
their ECU account
According to Jolene Jernigan,
director of clinical operations in the
Student Health Center, the center
administers about 400-500 flu shots
per flu season and that they are
hoping the number will increase
this year. Flu season varies by re-
gion; for this region it typically
begins in December or January.
"It takes about eight weeks for
the shot to work, so that's why we
start giving them so early Jernigan
While it is recommended that
everyone get a flu shot for extra
protection, Jernigan says small chil-
dren, the elderly, people with
chronic illnesses and the wheelchair-
bound should definitely get vacci-
nated. College students also make
the list because of the constant, close
contact with people.
If you are one of the people that
never fail to catch the flu every year,

Students have different opinions about the whole
concept of permanent cosmetics.
many other women agree with the hesitancy to
permanently chose what colors you will wear and where
you will wear them.
, "As you grow and your face changes you will want
to accentuate different features said freshman Sonya
1 "It's too dangerous, especially around the eyes said
Nancy Ruttle, freshman. "Everyone is allowed their own
opinion on that
From a male perspective, permanent cosmetics is
not so great. "I'd still date a girl who did this, but I'd
much rather date a girl who did not have this done
said sophomore Randy Hale.
Nevertheless, many of Hackett's clients say that their
family and friends can't tell the permanent cosmetics
from their regular makeup.
"The procedure is especially beneficial to women
who would want to save time, are fashion-conscious,
allergic to cosmetics, have sparse or very light eyebrows,
have ultra-sensitive eyes or have unsteady hands
Hackett said.
While many of Hackett's clients are older, she has
seen a number of college age women.

Survey illustrates urban
sprawl in North Carolina
RALEIGH (AP)-A commute in urban North Caro-
lina most likely takes more time than it should along
an unattractive road, according to a national survey
by the Sierra Club.
The survey, released Monday, ranked North Caro-
lina 47th in land use planning and 44th in transporta-
tion planning. The state did better at open space pro-
tection, ranking 28th, and much better at community
revitalization, ranking second behind Maryland.
"We have seen explosive growth in the last couple
of decades said Mary Kiesau, organizer of the state
Sierra Club's anti-sprawl campaign. "North Carolina is
trying to evolve from a rural state with widespread
population to a very populous and relatively urban
It did happen so quickly that we haven't begun to
look at ways to plan our land use and plan our trans-
portation effectively
The group's national report, "Solving Sprawl came
a year after the Sierra Club criticized urban areas for
poor development planning. This year's report focused
on states where governments tried to keep residents
living closer to their jobs, avoiding the pollution and
gridlock of extended suburbs.
The report was issued Monday, the same day as the
last in a series of public hearings on growth held around
the state.
Bill Holman, secretary of the state Department
of Environment and Natural Resources, said both a
legislative commission and a task force established
by Gov. Jim Hunt that is holding the public hear-
ings would make recommendations on how best to
handle growth.
"I certainly agree the state could and should do
more to work with local governments to grow
smarter he said.
One North Carolina problem the Sierra Club
mentioned was development in floodplains, an is-
sue raised several times since Hurricane Floyd struck
Sept. 16.
"I'm sure there will be a healthy debate about
additional local or state regulations of developing
in flood plains Holman said.
Kiesau said citizens are willing to pay to protect
the environment and their quality of life. In 1998,
voters approved 70 percent of the 240 bonds and
initiatives on ballots across the country, most by an
overwhelming majority, she said.
"People recognize the responsibility we have to
our future and our children Kiesau said. "And en-
vironmental quality and quality of life are a huge
piece of this responsibility

Ann Schehr is a sociology professor at both ECU
and Pitt Community College, and spends her free time
volunteering with the SWAT Team, otherwise known

Schehr and her husband have found a hobby in
restoring old houses. She is currently working on her
second house, and thankfully, it did not suffer any
major damage due to Hurricane Floyd or the flooding?.
She says that she loves old houses and makes a point
of centering family vacations around historical sights
Her other loves include her husband, their two year
old son and music, especially rock-alternative. Schehr,
also loves to read, particularly works by Southern writ
ers, and going to concerts by performers such as Fuel
the Goo Goo Dolls, and Better Than Ezra.
Schetjr has a heavy work load juggling full-time
motherhood, and teaching English at both ECU and
Pitt Community College. She is also working on two
additional degrees in order to get her masters in En-
glish and sociology. She is obtaining both of these at
ECU where she has already received her masters in edu-

She encourages her students take a look at their

Mormons complain to national retailers about risque ads
Patty and Charles Shumway trav-
eled to Salt Lake City earlier this
month from their home in Arizona,
they expected a weekend filled with
religious activities at the twice-
yearly Mormon conference.
But a stroll through a downtown
shopping mall gave them a differ-
ent kind of experience. Semi-clad
mannequins in a display window
left them deeply offended, and it
points to a weakness in the adver-
tising strategy some national retail-
ers pursue.
Stores such as American Eagle
Outfitters, The Gap and The Body
Shop USA use a one-size fits all ap-
proach to marketing, shipping the
same window displays and posters
to stores across the nation.
In conservative Utah, more than
70 percent Mormon, the Shumways
and others are complaining about
store windows that feature a little
too much mannequin flesh, a little
too suggestive a sales pitch there.
What troubled the Shumways
was an American Eagle display that
featured mannequins with open
zippers, loose buttons and shirts
carelessly pulled up.
"I don't like it, it's really taste-
less said Patty Shumway, standing
in front of the display Saturday.
"It doesn't look like they're sell-
ing clothes Charles Shumway said.
"It looks like they're selling some-
thing else he said, hinting that
the display was more about sex
than about clothes.
In another wing of the mall,
The Gap's poster of a woman with
her midriff showing also drew an-
gry glares.
Last year, The Body Shop USA
got a handful of complaints for its
"Fake It" campaign, which fea-
tured posters of a man with a bottle
of self-tanning lotion tucked into
his swimming trunks.
The ad drew complaints from
several states, including Utah,
company spokesman Alistair Jack-
son said.
Conservatives in Utah, the
Midwest and the Deep South
didn't find it funny. But the 290-
store chain refused to take the post-
ers down early in most states.
"We have a fairly strong opin-
ion as far as the brand is concerned
Jackson said. "It's in the nature of
The Body Shop to be edgy
Like most national retailers,
American Eagle, The Gap and The
Body Shop send the same window
displays and advertising campaigns
to all of their stores, regardless of
demographics, said Ronald Hill, a
consumer behavior expert at the
University of Portland in Oregon.
"The bottom line is that the
youth in Generation Y find this look
appealing, and the cost of adjusting
advertising in any particular com-
munity is just too great Hill said.
Most advertisers are trying to
attract one group and not offend
another, Hill said. But it's cheaper
for chains to launch universal ad
campaigns and handle local com-
plaints as they come.
That can mean trouble when
religious groups hold gatherings.
"It was probably the right ad to
the right people, but probably at the
wrong time Hill said, referring to
the American Eagle window display.
"I don't think anybody said 'when
the (Mormon church) does its con-
ference, let's pull our ads
Hill said people who complain
about advertisements probably are
a vocal minority. But-trfaTrgrecery
stores have responded to similar
complaints, covering up maga-
zines that show too much skin or
use racy headlines. Some grocers
say it's because Utah's mainstream
culture, not a vocal minority, is

Pirates fall to Southern Miss 39-22
Team had no answer to Derek Nix
Stephen Schramm
Southern Miss stopped ECU Saturday, 39-22, in a
contest between the two heavyweights in Conference
USA. Like any great bout, the game was filled with
momentum swings and frenetic exchanges.
ECU jumped out to 15-3 lead after two touchdown
strikes by David Garrard and a safety. Southern Miss
countered with deadly shots to the body of the Pirate
defense. Running back Derek Nix and the strong of-
fensive line of the Golden Eagles pounded the ball into
the gut of the ECU front seven.
The game featured Garrard picking the Pirates up
off of the canvas to cut a 10-point lead down to three
and leading them on a drive to possibly earn a draw or
take the lead. The knockout blow was sudden and vi-
cious, and came in the form of a 60-yard interception
return by Southern Miss' Leo Barnes.
"Southern Mississippi is a good football team and I
thought we played about as hard as you could play
said Head Coach Steve Logan. "There was just no room
for error, and we made a couple on the offensive side
of the ball that let a chance for victory slip away
The Pirates streaked out to a 15-3 lead on Garrard
touchdown passes to Arnie Powell and Jamie Wilson.
Southern Miss responded to the Pirates opening salvo
by doing what they would do all day, handing the ball
off to Derek Nix.
"Nix is a hard-nosed runner said Pernell Griffin,
linebacker. "We had to give the whole team to him,
give 11 guys to the ball at all times. If not, he'll break a
couple of tackles
The 1998 C-USA Freshman Player of the Year rattled
off short runs behind the powerful Southern Miss line
to gain a total of 171 yards rushing.
"Nix is an excellent runner said Jeff Kerr, line-
backer. "He runs real hard, and their offensive line did
an excellent job. We couldn't do a whole lot with their
line and they couldn't do a whole lot with Nix
Nix carried the ball 42 times and did not let up.
"He wasn't the Freshman Player of the Year by acci-
dent Logan said. "He's the strongest runner in our
conference. He's not a make-you-miss type of fellow,
he runs through tackles and he kind of ladders up as
he goes. That's kind of what you saw today
ECU'S 15-3 lead disappeared after Jeff Kelly's touch-
down passes to Sherrod Gideon and Todd Pinkston.
The Golden Eagles took a 16-15 lead after the 38-yard
pass to Pinkston.
"We did go up 15-3 and they did come back Grif-
fin said. "A few quick slants and 1 looked up at the
score and it was 16-15
Kelly hit Gideon for another score to put Southern
Miss up 25-15 to start the second half. Garrard re-
sponded by connecting with LaMont Chappel for a 42-
yard scoring strike.
"It was a play we scored a lot on last year Chappel
said. "I felt we needed a bigplay. Southern Miss hadn't
seen that because we never ran it against them so we
were pretty confident that it would work

point Logan said. "We just didn't generate anything
after that. 1 really thought we could get down the field
and in the very least, I thought we could give Kevin
(Miller) a shot for three points to go 25-25
Garrard led the Pirates on a drive to knot the game
up. He was able to escape tackles and elude the defense
to get the Pirates across midfield. The Pirates faced a
fourth-and-four at the Southern Miss 42-yard line when
the Golden Eagles administered their knockout blow.
Garrard looked to his left to pass to a seemingly wide
open Marcellus Harris. The pass was picked off by
Barnes, who took the pass 60 yards for the score that
put the Golden Eagles back up by 10.
"My read was to look outside first, the guy that was
on him came in deep from the safety spot Garrard
said. "He just came up so fast, I thought the ball might
have got there before he did but he just ran right

the Pirates.

Braves, Mets begin series tonight
NL East rivals square off
ATLANTA (AP)�Once again, the only
thing standing between the Atlanta Braves
and the World Series is a second-place team
they already beat over the course of 162
It may not be fair, but that's life in the
wild-card era.
Atlanta reached its eighth straight NL
championship series by defeating the Hous-
ton Astros in the opening round, finishing
off the triumph with a 7-5 victory Saturday.
About the time the Braves were popping
champagne corks at the Astrodome, Todd
Pratt hit a lOth-inning homer against Arizona
to send the New York Mets to their first LCS
since 1988.
Atlanta dominated New York during the
regular season and won the East by seven
games. But those standings don't mean a
thing now, as the Braves learned two years
ago when they lost to Florida in the LCS after
finishing nine games ahead of the Marlins in
the division.
"You've got to throw all that out Chip-

team with four wins is going to the World

Valentine wouldn't talk about the

"The discipline is really none of

After Benitez finally arrived at

Benitez entered in the eighth

a two-run double to Jay Bell. He
then pitched the ninth.

Goalies respond to aggressive play
New crease rules
change game for keepers
When the NHL changed the crease rule back to an
on-ice judgment call, almost all response was positive.
Few realized, however, that the changed rule would se-
riously affect goalies.
No longer is the crease a forbidden place. Players
can, once again, point, prod and even hack the crease
when a loose puck inhabits the area. The goalies' re-
sponse? Fight back.
' In the NHL's first full week, it was obvious that goal-
ies played extra aggressive in the crease area in an effort
to reestablish a grip on the hallowed space.
Whether the skaters took liberty or the goalies over
reacted, some fireworks resulted. The most notable in-
cident was when Sharks goalie Steve Shields took ex-
ception to Mark Janssens' behavior near the crease. A
brawl ensued.
Thursday, Devils goalie Martin Brodeur was more
frustrated about the
three goals he allowed in less than 10 minutes, but
his slash on Matthew Barnaby was right in front of
the crease.
Colorado Avalanche goalie Patrick Roy is old
enough to remember the days before referees clamped
down on crease violations. At 34, Roy can also recall
when the crease was a small rectangle, and players took
runs at goalies all the time.
The veteran goalie, although understanding the
decision, isn't happy about the increased traffic he'll
see in front of his face.
"The old rule was not that bad he told The Den-
ver Post. "Of course, there were flaws in the rule, like
guys who were not c) se to the play would disallow a
good goal. But I think if there is a direct play, and the
guy is in the crease, they should call it.
"I know it's a tough call for the referees. 1 know
they've got to show a lot of guts), but that's what this
game is all about
It's no surprise that forwards welcome the change.
"It's going to make it more exciting said Roy's
teammate, Shjon Podein. "When I came into the league,
they told you, 'Go hard to the goal line They didn't
say to go hard to the crease and stop. That's not

Cowboys' Irvin injures neck,
spinal cord in collision
Receiver heads list of injured stars
Dallas receiver Michael Irvin injured his neck
and spinal cord in Philadelphia on Sunday and was
carried off the field in a stretcher, but he was able
to move his hands and feet.
Irvin was taken to a hospital, where tests showed
swelling in the spinal cord and a herniated disc.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who rode in the
ambulance with Irvin, refused to speculate about
the seriousness of the injury. The hospital didn't
release any information.
"I felt that he needed me, because I knew his
family would want me to be there to give them
information Jones said.
Another star receiver, Denver's Shannon Sharpe,
broke his left collarbone against Oakland. It wasn't
immediately known how long Sharpe would be
Irvin caught a short pass from Troy Aikman in
the first quarter, tried to shake a tackle from Bobby
Taylor and was hit on the head by safety Tim Hauck.
As Taylor tackled Irvin, Hauck's shoulder pad col-
lided with the side of Irvin's helmet, twisting his
head awkwardly as it hit the artificial turf.
Irvin was scheduled to spend the night in the
hospital, then return to Dallas on Jones' jet as early
as Monday. Cowboys doctor Robert Vandermeer
said the herniated disc probably was an old injury
that wasn't caused by the collision.
Irvin moved his fingers and appeared to be talk-
ing as he lay on his back for more than 10 min-
utes. He was fitted with a neck brace and loaded
onto a stretcher as his teammates circled in prayer
across the field.
Many fans at Veterans Stadium cheered when
they realized Irvin was down. Players on both sides
said they were disgusted.
"I know our fans pride themselves on being
tough, but that wasn't tough Eagles receiver
Charles Johnson said. "That was just plain igno-

Sharpe was injured in the third quarter against �

over San Francisco. He returned later, but had just
6 yards on seven carries.
In the same game, 49ers defensive lineman
Marvin Washington was knocked out for the sea-
son with a ruptured quadriceps tendon.
Chicago quarterback Shane Matthews played
well in the Bears' 24-22 victory over Minnesota
before pulling his right hamstring while scrambling
early in the fourth quarter. He completed 19 of 28
passes for 184 yards, two TDs and no interceptions.
New Orleans quarterback Billy Joe Hobert
missed most of Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Atlanta
Falcons after getting a neck stinger on a second-
quarter sack, the same injury he suffered a week
earlier in Chicago.
Unlike last week, when Hobert was carted off,
he walked off the field Sunday after remaining
down for several minutes.
The battered Detroit defense got more bad neWC

Buckeyes get a hand, now gear up for contest against Penn State
The margin of victory was the

it gave Ohio State coach John Coo-

over Purdue Saturday. "We can win

Winning six games in a row will
require a heck of a lot of together-
ness. This week Ohio State travels
to No. 2 Penn State. Subsequent
road trips come against Minnesota,
unbeaten Michigan State and
Michigan all of whom have better
records than the Buckeyes.
"I challenged the locker room
after the game Cooper said. "We
can't beat Penn State playing like we
did today, making mistakes. If we
put it together, I've seen enough of
this team to know we can be a good
football team
Ohio State (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten)
showed signs of that on a rainy and
dreary day at Ohio Stadium. But the
Buckeyes also showed signs of be-
ing the same old ragtag unit that has
played uninspired and at times
sloppy football most of the season.
Quarterback Drew Brees drove
Purdue (4-2, 1-2) from its own 20
to the Ohio State 14 with just un-

But the 29-yard try by Travis
Dorsch was a low liner. Johnson,
who broke through the wall over

with the same rotation they used in
the opening round, which means
Greg Maddux (19-9) will start Game
1 Tuesday night at Turner Field.
Kevin Millwood (18-7), who had
a one-hitter and a save against the

Health Tips for Healthy U getorgand
As we all try to get back into the swing of things after Floyd's Fury, there are
many questions concerning our health that come to mind. Do I need a Typhoid
shot? What about all of those mosquitoes that have to be carrying diseases.
And that smell in the flooded areas-my gosh, I'm gonna catch something, I just
know it.
To help ease your minds, and to answer some of the health concernsthe list
below identifies issues concerning U and Your Health:
A NEEDLE IN A HAYSTACK: An updated Tetanus shot (within the past 5-10
years) is the only vaccine that has been recommended at this time. There is no
need to perform widespread immunization on Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, nor
BUG OFF: To protect yourself from mosquitoes, USE INSECT REPELLENT.
Mosquitoes that can carry serious illness such as encephalititis were not identi-
fied in this area prior to the flood, and the flood is no reason to signify the preva-
lence of this now.
S-T-A-N-K-Y: You have to admit that it does smell like Peppy la Pew in some
parts of Greenville. The smell is unpleasant only to your nose. You cannot pick
up an illness from inhaling smelly fumes. However, if you are someone that has
allergies, the mold and mildew may be a problem for you.
CLEAN UP: If you must go back into floodedmuddy areas, be sure to take pre-
cautions and wear long sleeved clothing, wear plasticrubber on your feet and
hands, and use a stick to make your way through the mud and water. Also, be
sure to take a buddy with you, and do not go into the flooded areas with sores or
open wounds.
If you find yourself wondering if a health related concern is myth or fact, be sure
to call your Student Health Service at 328-6841 to get the answers you may
