Student Health Services will be holding a
Hepatitis B AwarenessVaccine Day at the
Wright Place tomorrow 9 a.m4 p.m. The cost
of the vaccination is $20 per injection (there
are three) or $10 per adolescent injections (all
three injections having been received before
age 20).
Career Focus Day will be held on the
Wright Plaza outside the student store tomor-
row 11 p.m. Representatives from aca-
demic departments and professional schools
will offer advice and answer questions about
the career opportunities available through
their programs. The rain site is 105 and 106
The water on campus, although discolored,
is safe to consume. Greenville Utilities has of-
fered the following explanation of why the
water is discolored.
Manganese is a naturally occurring min-
eral in river water. The state requires monitor-
ing of manganese, but it does not pose any
health risks or affect the safety of the drinking
water. It is primarily an aesthetic concern as
elevated levels cause discoloration of the wa-
The standard level of manganese is .05mg
1. Our finished water currently has around a-
.10 mg1 concentration, giving it its yellow-
ish-brown appearance. When washing whites,
do not add bleach, as this will stain clothes
even more.
The high levels on manganese are a result
of the recent flooding. Essentially, the water-
shed was flushed out, which raised levels of
the the element. However, levels are beginning
to decrease and clearer water should be in the
distribution system over the next few days.
According to the Employment Security
Commission (ESC) of NC, our state's season-
ally adjusted unemployment rate fell in Sep-
tember to 3.1 percent, down from 3.3 percent
in August. Our unemployment rate remains
below the U.S. rate, which is 4.2 percent. The
.ESC expects unemployment levels in Eastern
J4C to climb due to the effects of Hurricane

Allergic reactions to the

Carolyn Herold
A new vaccine is being devel-
oped at the School of Medicine
to help combat fire ant stings.
With the recent flooding, the
population of fire ants in eastern
NC has increased. Dr. Donald
Hoffman, a professor of pathol-
ogy and laboratory medicine at
the School of Medicine, has
found the molecular structure of
fire ant venom proteins that
cause allergic reactions in some
According to Hoffman, the
vaccine consists of ground-up
ants which are then injected into
a patient.
Hoffman found an important
compound in the venom and
developed a method to deter-
mine those compounds in every
vaccine of venom. This ant
venom is composed of four pro-
teins. Virtually nothing is
known about a few of these pro-
teins, which makes Hoffman's
research more relevant.
The material in the venom
that causes red bumps in hu-
mans is an alkaloid (alkaloids
are metals). Since alkaloids do
not dissolve in water, they cause
white blood cells to migrate to
the site of the sting, thereby
causing a bump.
"The vaccine is only for
those persons who have a
known allergic reaction to the
fire ant stings Hoffman said.
"The vaccine lessens the reac-
tion to the sting and is 95-98
percent effective
According to the Emergency
Medical Book, the fire ant sting
is produced when the fire ant
pinches a section of a person's
skin, and then pivots its body
around, stinging the victim with
its ovipositor (stinger "tail").
Sting reactions can be swell-
ing, redness and itching, and, in

New course offers
valuable teaching tool
Carolyn Herold
Eighteen students jump into
the pool at Pitt County Memo-
rial HOfpifal every Wednesday
night and get credit for taking
EXSS 5904.
Of course, there is a little
more to the "Recreational,
Physical and Adaptive Physical
Education" course than just get-
ting wet.
This class, in its first year at
ECU, is an aquatics therapy pro-
gram. It focuses on recreational
physical and occupational stud-
ies and adaptive physical edu-
cation, which teaches students
in the occupational therapist
field how to rehabilitate pa-
tients in a pool.
The class was created by
Donna Mooneyham, aquatic
therapy coordinator, who has
been working in the occupa-
tional therapy field for 10 years.
She has tried to get this course
operational for five years.
Mooneyham said she is quite
pleased with the support the
class has received ftojn students
and faculty alike, she has 18 stu-
dents enrolled and was expect-
ing only a handful. They will be
taking two field trips this semes-
ter to the hospital pools in
Kinston and Tarboro.
Mooneyham said that these trips
will familiarize students with
working in a smaller pool setting.
Her goals for this course are
to provide an affordable class
that is curriculum-based and
teaches students the background
and techniques used in adaptive
aquatics. She also hopes that this
experience will make students
more attractive to businesses in
the rehabilitation field.
"This is a very hands-on
class Mooneyham said. "I think
the skills the students will leave
with will make them more mar-
ketable. If you look at 50 people
withj degrees, and one has a spe-
cialty degree, it ups the value.
This class is wonderful because
it not only teaches technique, it
provides hands-on experience
The course is offered to
graduate students by teacher per-
mission. Several people from the
community are also enrolled in
the class. It is held at Pitt County
Memorial Hospital's pool at the
Regional Rehabilitation Building,
which is the largest in NC,

Dole misses opportunities; ALCOHOL
drops out
from page 1
Elizabeth Dole, standing next to her
husband former Sen. Dole, bows out of
the 2000 election (AP photo).
long ago, Elizabeth Dole looked de-
lightedly at the networks she'd built
in Iowa, New Hampshire and other
early primary states. "We're going
to have everything in place by
Christmas. We're in really good
shape she thought.
That was then. After recalling
this once-sunny outlook Wednes-
day, Dole folded her presidential
campaign, saying it was futile to
She started out in February, a
political celebrity, hot on George W.
Bush's heels and basking in public
fascination with the possibility that
a woman could become president.
But the story from there is a tale
of missed opportunities.
Dole blamed the Texas
governor's "preexisting network of
political supporters built "quietly
but effectively" from his office, start-
ing in 1996, while she was at the
American Red Cross meticulously
guarding the organization's nonpar-
tisan status.
Bush's bandwagon�he's raised
a historic $57 million�crippled her
fund raising, said Dole, who none-
theless accepted that she stepped
onto the campaign trail as an un-
prepared first-time candidate with-
out even a staff in place.
Asked what she'd do differently,
Dole offered a singular prescription:
"Leave the Red Cross earlier
But Republican strategist Mary
Matalin, a Bush ally, scoffed,
"What's the implication? That she
didn't have a network? That's ridicu-
lous, the wife of a former senator
Bob Dole also had sought the
GOP presidential nomination three
A nontraditional campaign was
Dole's stated aim. In practice, how-
ever, that meant a campaign so po-
lite and cautious and deliberative
that it plodded itself underfoot of
this year's juggernaut through a
compressed primary season.
Over the summer. Dole essen-
tially put fund raising on hold while
she furiously concentrated her leg-
work in Iowa, where her strategy for
pulling off an impressive finish in
an August straw poll was to person-
ally invite each of the 3,410 Iowans
who turned out to vote for her.
After a couple of victorious tele-
vision interviews Dole retreated
with her husband for a week's vaca-
tion in New Hampshire. Aides said
at the time they didn't have the
heart to deny the tired candidate
time off.
"When the Iowa straw poll took
place, it was expected maybe that
this would translate into money
Dole said. "What it translated into
was a lot of strong organizations
But they were no good without
the fund raising. "You can't starve
an army, organizations need sup-
port said Dole's pollster, Linda

time by scurrying to dozens of

tember, but they were mostly draw-

Of particular interest to many
students are the new state laws re-
garding the purchasing, possessing,
selling and giving of alcoholic bev-
The first of these new laws,
passed earlier this year in the state
House of Representatives, reads that
anyone aged 19 or 20 who pur-
chases or possesses an alcoholic bev-
erage is guilty of a Class 3 misde-
meanor. The maximum punish-
ment for a Class 3 misdemeanor is
a fine or imprisonment for no more
than 30 days.
The other two laws, passed in
the state deal with those of legal
drinking age. The penalty for any-
one who sells or gives alcoholic bev-
erages to anyone under the age of
21 has been increased to a Class 1
misdemeanor, for which the maxi-
mum punishment is more than six
months imprisonment.
If the court does not impose ac-
tive jail time, the convicted person
must pay a $500 fine and perform a
minimum of 25 hours of commu-
nity service. The penalty has also
been increased to a Class 1 misde-
meanor for any person over 21 who
is caught aiding and abetting under-

baits Uzzell said. The types of
bait that work best on fire ants is a
soybean based bait. Their favorite
foods are things that are oily in tex-
ture. The bait should be placed
down on a warm, sunny day. The
bait contains a small amount of in-
secticide that gets distributed
through the colony to the queen.
When the queen dies, the rest of the
colony soon follows. The bait is
simple to put out, inexpensive and
lasts for a long time.
"The ants' own diligence is their
undoing Uzzell said.
To differentiate fire ants from
other varieties of ants look for two
little bumps, measuring about 2-4
millimeters long, between the ant's
thorax and abdomen. These ants
possess the most potent allergen
that is known. They inject one
nanogram of their venom into their
victims. In areas of infestation in
Texas, the wildlife population has
been decreased by about 90 percent.

We would like to congratulate our football team on its rousing 52-7
victory over the Tulane Green Wave on Saturday. The Pirates turned in
one of its best showings of the season, proving to many fans and experts
all over the country that this team is a major threat, capable of beating
any team in the nation. 35,000 students, alumni and fans braved the
chilly wind to support our team, but too many seats went unfilled.
While we realize that this is by no means a show of a lack of faith in our
football team, we think it's an affirmation in the belief that we would win
easily, and we sincerely hope that this is not the beginning of a trend.
With ECU athletics on the cusp of achieving big-time national recogni-
tion, it is important that now�more than ever�we show our school spirit.
This extends even past our football program and into other sports as
well. With ECU entering Conference USA as a full member in the fall of
2001, our athletic department faces the challenge of improved oppo-
nents on a national level.
Many of our teams are entering their upcoming seasons with a chance
for title contentions, so it is an exciting time to be involved with ECU
Our basketball team faces perhaps one of their biggest seasons ever as
it prepares to take the program to the next level of competition. With the
addition of new Head Coach Bill Herrion the team should show vast im-
provement and contend for the CAA title. Women's basketball Head Coach
Dee Gibson will lead our team for her second season into a stretch ripe
with opportunity.
Our baseball team ran away with the CAA title and gained national
ranking last year, but will need our support to continue to grow.
Every game ECU plays in each sport is a key factor for recruiting, rec-
ognition and respect. Remember that you and I, the student and the fan,
are more than mere spectators�we are a reflection of how seriously this
school takes its athletics.

Senate rejects Test Ban Treaty
Marvelle Sullivan
Last week, the Senate, in a 51 to
48 vote, rejected the controversial
Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty
(CTB). This treaty Is designed to
curb the development of nuclear
weapons by banning all nuclear test
explosions worldwide.
To accomplish this, the plan in-
cludes the formation of networks to
detect explosions, agencies to in-
spect suspicious activity, and noti-
fication requirements for any
chemical explosions. The 1996
treaty is contingent on the ratifica-
tion by 44 specific countries, and to
date, only 26 have In fact approved
the CTB measures. The United
States' rejection last Tuesday, led by
Republicans, caused a domestic and
International uproar.
The treaty's proponents, who
include Democrats and many for-
eign governments, view the CTB as
a means to the end of nuclear weap-
onry and warfare. They believe it
will decrease and eventually elimi-
nate nuclear proliferation, and more
Importantly, that it is the United
States duty to lead this ambitious
Clinton, an avid supporter (who
probably wants his name associated
with this in the history books), was
angered by the Senate's decision. He
blamed partisan politics as the Re-
publican motivation for striking
down U.S. ratification. Other pro-
ponents view the CTB effort as an
effective way to approach nuclear
weapons in the next century and
feel this last vote will be a major
setback for the road to peace.
While banning nuclear testing
in order to reduce the risk for
nuclear warfare through a plan like
the CTB seems like a step in the right
direction, the ban is entirely imprac-
tical, and thus, useless. The senators
who rejected the treaty should be
commended, rather than chastised
for making a command decision
that is politically incorrect.
The Senate was not voting for
nuclear testing or warfare. They did
not even say that the treaty did not
have good intentions. They realized,
however, that sometimes good in-
tentions pave the road to hell, and
that this is one of those times.
The CTB regulations are ulti-
mately unverifiable and unenforce-
able. To pass a treaty that stipulates
measures that are neither verifiable
nor enforceable is ludicrous and
politically unsound. The ban calls
for detection agencies to monitor
and inspect various sites. However,
there is a broad range of testing tak-
ing place that can't be detected or
can be masked as something else.
Since there is nothing to compre-
hensively detect or verify adherence
to the treaty, it is pointless. Unen-
forceable rules make both the rules
and the rule makers a joke. This
would weaken our international
edge � not strengthen it.
Moreover, it is unreasonable to
believe the type of countries and
mentalities that the treaty is de-
signed for will actually adjust their
plans and arsenals to accommodate
our wishes. Iraq, alone is the prime
example of a country who really just
doesn't care what is written on a
piece of paper. The only countries
that will obey are the very ones that
don't pose a threat.
No one disagrees that nuclear
disarmament is ideal. However, the
CTB is not an effective means to
accomplish this. Realistically, the
odds are slim to none that a true and
honest end to the arms race will ever
occur. Arms control is a complex
problem that cannot and will not
be tackled and defeated by a docu-
ment such as the CTB. While the
Senate's vote was unpopular, it was
wise and will be appreciated in the

Isn't it funny how sometimes
people are picked on for the simple
reason that they are smart? Even
with me, the Ryan-Dogg, it's tough
not to look at someone who uses
the word paradigm in a sentence as
if he were sharpening an ink pen. It
just seems that smart people and
average people, not to mention stu-
pid people, just can't seem to be cool
to each other.
I figure that even though the
preceding sentence may seem a bit
offensive, I doubt that I'll be receiv-
ing any nasty letters or e-mails say-
ing "I'm a stupid person and I didn't
like what you said one bit. By the
way, when does "Knight Rider"
come on nowadays?
Now, I don't think I'm any sort
of genius, but I know a few big
words and can spout them off ran-
domly. Words like "Williamsburg
"channel" and "Tylenol" come eas-
ily to me. Maybe it's just that I use
them like once every five sentences,
and then stop entirely when the
person I'm talking to gets that look
that dogs get after you perform the
old "I'll pretend to throw the ball
and hide it behind my back" trick
twenty-odd times.
I guess that it's just the ones who
use them word after word, and
never dumb things down for people
who may not know the meaning of
"antidisestablishmentarianism I
have seen people talking, and one
makes a simple statement like, "I

Homecoming nominee disqualified unfairly
Human body should be respected
The human body is a beautifully
crafted work of art, yet the censor-
ship boards and the legislatures in
this country are in a constant battle
to cover it up. Nudity and sexual
expression are illegal except under
specifically controlled conditions,
and, as a result of this stifling repres-
sion, we have many problems.
People need to express them-
selves sexually. It is part of being a
human being and living a wholly
fulfilled life. It is not an absolute
necessity such as food and shelter
but rather a factor which improves
the quality and meaningfulness of
What happens when you take
away people's ability to express
themselves? A pent-up energy be-
gins growing inside which can oc-
casionally show itself in twisted and
violent outbursts. Sexuality in
America is closely linked with vio-
lence and degradation because
people have had to find other
means to release the energy that has
built up inside of them.
Sexuality should be viewed as a
beautiful and expressive entity that
dwells inside all of us. No one is
devoid of all sexuality. Everyone has
the same fears, thoughts and dreams
so why hold it all back?
I am not suggesting people go
around having sex in public nor
that there should be no agreement
over some rules of conduct. I am just
confused at the Puritanical dam on
the river of sexuality. Once the wa-
ter builds up enough on one side, it
is simply going pow around into
new territory. In any case, you can
not stop the water from flowing.
A naked body should not be
something people giggle or point
fingers and snicker at when they see
it in a movie. Why is there so much
violence on television yet you can
not see a woman's naked breast?
Why was it necessary to create spe-
cial laws just so a woman could
breastfeed in public? The human
body should be something held in
reverence and awe as one of the
most exquisite creatioris every wit-
nessed on this planet.
You are beautiful; you are per-
fect just the way you are. Let no one
tell you otherwise. Be at peace until
we meet again.

Dear Editor,
Now that the homecoming fes-
tivities are finally over, I can ask my
fellow students of ECU to imagine
themselves in a scenario similar to
mine. Imagine you have been nomi-
nated to represent your organiza-
tion for homecoming king. It's an
incredible feeling to be nominated
by your peers and friends for such
an honorable position at a large and
distinguished university.
With eagerness and motivation
to participate in the exciting events
that surround the homecoming ex-
perience, one night you receive an
unexpected and disconcerting
phone call announcing you have
been stripped of honor and prestige.
Do you believe that could happen
to you?
It definitely happened to me,
disqualified homecoming nominee
of the ECU Chapter of the National
Speech-Language Hearing Associa-
tion (NSSHLA).
Due to the aftermath of Hurri-
cane Floyd, NSSHLA scheduled an
emergency meeting the very same
day that classes resumed to discuss
the homecoming events and nomi-
nate their king and queen represen-
The nominations were due the
next day. Attendance at the meet-
ing was at an all time low because
there was insufficient time allotted
for the members to plan and attend.
It was also an inopportune time for
students who were struggling to re-
sume their lives after the floods.
A person who prefers to remain
anonymous and I decided that be-
cause many of the NSSHLA mem-
bers did not have the opportunity
to attend the meeting, I would put
a few flyers by the computer lab and
the classrooms utilized by the Com-
munication Sciences and Disorders
(CDSI) students in the Allied Health
Building. Prior to putting the flyers
up, we asked one of our advisors,
who thought it was a terrific idea
and foresaw no problems, if it was
The intention of the flyers was
to introduce ourselves to the mem-
bers who were unable to be present
at the emergency meeting and en-
courage them to vote for their fel-
low NSSHLA nominees. The flyer
also stated how and when the vot-
ing process occurred. The ECU
chapter of NSSHLA is a vast organi-
zation consisting of membership
from juniors to second year gradu-
ate students. It is impossible and
nebulous to expect everyone to
know each member.
I received a phone call from a
homecoming committee chairper-
son affirming I was disqualified. I
was in a state of stupefaction! The
Homecoming Committee disquali-
fied us on the basis that we'were
"campaigning" with the flyers. I
appealed to the associate vice chan-
cellor for Alumni Relations in hopes
they would overrule the decision,
but I was further vexed with the
political due process and jargon.
An emergency meeting with the
Homecoming committee was sum-
moned for time was very limited.
Homecoming was the next week. I
was given the opportunity to appeal
the committee's decision. The
anonymous person and I presented
our case to the board encouraging
them to reconsider their decision
and to reinstate us. Miscommuni-
cation was the main argument be-
cause circumstances like ours have
occurred in the past.
While the Homecoming com-
mittee did have the meeting in
which the rules and other proceed-
ings were discussed, the distribution
of information should have been
better organized. The relay of infor-
mation from the source to the re-
cipients was inhibited.
After the Homecoming Com-
mittee adhered to their original and
absurd decision, they added insult
to injury when they said I was still
welcome to attend the Homecom-
ing dinner during which they an-
nounce the winners of the home-
coming court. I strongly feel that a
warning would have been more ap-
propriate. A copy of the rules and
regulations attached to the home-
coming nominee's application is
one way to better distribute the in-
formation precisely. Further confu-
sion can be avoided in the future if
the applicant was required to sign
the copy stating heshe completely
understood the rules and regula-
My argument is not about being
on the homecoming court or win-
ning the title of homecoming king.
The principle is that I am a repre-
sentative of NSSHLA and looking
back, I have learned to challenge the
system that failed me. Instead of
accepting defeat, I have become a
stronger person and I would like to
thank the faculty of CSDI, NSSHLA,
and my family, friends and peers for
their support. I appreciate your en-
couragement as I did my best to rec-
tify the situation.

Where's our school spirit
Dear Editor:
I am appalled at the poor atten-
dance at the homecoming game this
past weekend. Our team, after all
they have been through, is having
an incredible season at 6-1. How-
ever, only 35,000 fans showed up
to the game. Even worse, a good
majority of those fans left early in
the third quarter, leaving only a few
of us hardcore fans to cheer on OUR
Pirates. So what if it was cold, this Is
football. Our team does us proud
let's do them as well. Suck it up and
stick out the weather, it's the least

they will be participating in. Political Science prepares

Rohypnol growing in notoriety
Students educated
about sedative effects
Erica Sikes
He seemed like a nice guy, until
he bought you that drink. All of a
sudden, you couldn't see, think or
walk straight. This was not just an
alcoholic buzz.
This was possibly a dose of
Rohypnol in your drink, and more
students are becoming aware of the
date rape drug called Rohypnol.
Originally used as a sedative for
patients with sleep disorders,
Rohypnol is 10 times more power-
ful than Vallum. The drug is manu-
factured overseas and illegally
brought Into the US.
"Effects can begin within 20-30
minutes of ingestion said Suzy of
the International Hotline on
Rohypnol. "The effects can last up
to six to eight hours, depending on
the amount of Ingestion
Side effects of Rohypnol include
impaired motor skills, impaired
judgment, dizziness, confusion and
amnesia. When an overdose occurs,
the effects include mental confu-
sion, extreme fatigue, low blood
pressure and comatose reactions. An
overdose of Rohypnol can be dan-
gerous, leading to death or other
persistent health problems.
Rohypnol can be detected
through urine tests within 72 hours
of ingestion. Anyone suspecting
Rohypnol use should be taken to
the emergency room immediately.
One myth surrounding this drug
is that it is only used in date rape
against women. Rohypnol has also
been used on men during robber-
ies. The colorless, odorless and taste-
less properties of the drug make it
easy to manipulate others with it.
As with any mixture of drugs
and alcohol, mixing the drug with
an alcoholic drink can increase the
effects. Preventing any encounters
with the drugs are the key to stay-
ing safe.
"Never leave your beverage un-
attended said Heather Zophy,
health educator at ECU Student
Health Services. "Don't accept
drinks from someone you don't
know, and look after your friends
Another sleep-inducing drug on
the market is GHB. It has been used
as an alternate anesthetic, a growth
hormone stimulant and a weight-
loss drug.
GHB comes in the form of a salt
powder or tablet. This drug is often
taken willingly because of its simi-
larities to the effects of alcohol mi-
nus the hangover. It takes only 15-
20 minutes for the effects of the
drug to occur.
Through Student Health Ser-
vices, prevention techniques and
information on Rohypnol and other
"date rape" drugs are being made
continually available.
"1 feel that every effort possible
should be made to warn students
about the effects of date rape drugs

Song writing can be therapeutic, a means of expres-
sion and a lucrative (or not so lucrative) career. In the
spring of 2000, ECU is offering a course for those who
are interested in composing beautiful lyrics.
Mike Hamer, who currently teaches Freshman Com-
position and Interpreting Literature, will be teaching
this class. He has also had experience in the field of
music. He has released three tapes, published three
children's musicals and has recently released a CD of
acoustic music entitled "Black Crow
All of the songs are his own originals, and accord-
ing to his press release it features everything from
"swing waltzes to folk ballads to a Caribbean based
rhythm He is also part of a band, "Mike Hamer and
the Rhinoceros with the Angelic Choir
According to Hamer, he plans to teach a variety of
things, including "different forms including story song,
calibrating, lyric as a rhythmic element of song, listen-
ing for sound in a lyric and do mutual critics

another way to make money Hamer said, referring to
this class.
"I think the course is a great idea said Bob Siegel,
assistant professor of the English Department. "It can
bridge some gaps to the Music Department, to aspiring
writers for musical theater and to poets who want to
work in a closely related field
According to Luke Whisnant, director of the Gradu-
ate Creative Writing Program and associate English
professor, "Mike Hamer is an inspirational teacher, and
a very accomplished song writer he'll do a great job
with the class
The course is offered by the English Department,
and will be taught on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-9:00
He hopes by the end of the course students will
have written three or four really good original songs.
He wants to "guide the students to discover the beauty
in the craft of song writing

daily lives because public policy has such far-reaching
implications that many people do not even realize.
Political science plays an important role in helping
students to understand many parts of the presidential
campaign process.
"It helps students learn what a president can and
can't do Spalding said. Political science teaches stu-
dents the process of an election and helps them as vot-
ers to know the candidates better
"Political science helps to explain the US relation-
ship with other countries said Trigg, who is a com-
munication major taking some political science classes.
"As a major, political science requires students to
be critical thinkers and writers McCurley said. "Also,
students sharpen and use their analytical skills when
expressing their understanding of subject matter
Careers in public policy, public administration and
local or federal politics are a natural progression after
graduation. Political science can also be an important
minor, giving students a secular liberal arts degree,
Spalding said.
"If you understand how the government works,
then you can have a say in it Spalding said.
Political Science gives students a chance to under-
stand both their own and other governments around
the world.

"I think he's one of the best artists, period said
Gail Ritzer, a former student of Hartley's. "His art is
very complex because it works on many levels. It works
visually and conceptually
"Paul typically isolates a single object said Lee
Hansley, owner and operator of the Lee Hansley Gal-
lery. "He celebrates it, and his works are immaculately
This show is by no means Hartley's first. His works
have been shown at galleries all over NC and in sev-
eral other eastern states, including the Vanderbilt
University Gallery in Nashville, Tenn. and the Meyers
Gallery in Chevy Chase, Md.
"I have known about his art since 1975 Hansley
said. "I've always followefa his work and have been
interested in his art. Wkfen I opened my gallery in
Raleigh in 1992, he was one of the first that I con-
tacted to be a stable artist
Hartley's art is not the only thing that is excep-
tional about him. He is also noted for his demeanor
as a teacher.
"I admire him for both things he does Ritzer said.
"He is an amazing artist but he is also very generous
with his knowledge and very helpful to students
"It's not every day that you get to see the work of a
professor that you study with Hansley said
Hartley became interested in art during his junior
year of college. He came to ECU to teach in 1975 after
completing his undergraduate and graduate degrees.
"I got into it by accident and found out that I en-

ECU police also get involve with tailgating in order
to keep all things running smoothly.
"Our main objective is to keep the peace in these
lots and to keep everyone safe said Sgt. Stephanie
Griffin of the ECU police, crime prevention division.
According to Griffin, the ECU police bring in offic-
ers outside of their jurisdiction to help. They have offi-
cials from New Bern, Kinston and Greenville assist with
the big crowds.
Along with keeping us safe, the officers also main-
tain the alcohol laws on the field.
"If we cut down the amount of alcohol abuse in
the parking lots, there will be less issues in the stadium
said Tom Younce, assistant director of the ECU police.
According to Younce, in five games during last year's
football season there were 53 ejections. During this
season's two home games there have been 75. The vast
majority have been alcohol related.
Those over the age of 21 may drink malt beverages
on the tailgating field, since drinking is not allowed in
the stadium. If someone tinder the age of 21 is found
consuming alcohol, there are consequences he or she
must face.
"If you are a non-student, you will receive a state
citation Griffin said. "If you are a student, you are in
violation of state law and university policy. You will
receive a campus appearance ticket in which you are
sent to the dean of students and also a state citation
"Our purpose is not to interrupt the fun Younce
said. "We are there to maintain law and order and en-
force the alcoholic beverage law
By following the rules and staying out of trouble,
�rj�; iT pnirv the events of tailgating.
So before experiencing the roar and excitement of
a football game, check out the pregame entertainment
in the tailgating field and take part in the ongoing tra-
dition at ECU.
Ye Olde Curiosity
Shop showcases oddities
SEATTLE (AP)�When you want to see shrunken
human heads, mutant pigs or a family of mummies
nestled among tourist trinkets, there's really only one
place to go.
Ye Olde Curiosity Shop on the city's waterfront
turned 100 last Friday. Curio collector J.E. Stadley
started the shop during the Yukon Gold rush, when
Seattle was booming as the leaping-off point for tens
of thousands of fortune seekers.
The current owners, his descendants, say a million
people visited the shop last year to browse among its
27,000 items. Prices fall between dime-store and
$10,000 for a totem pole.
Kimberly Eslinger to find out more about Jones.
Eslinger had no idea she was getting into such an
extensive project. She traveled to Raleigh, Washington
D.C. and Chapel Hill in hopes of digging up any infor-
mation she could find. Eslinger read every paper in
Joyner Library dating from 1850-1877 until she came
across his obituary which spoke of his life after slavery
and how he was a prominent citizen involved in poli-
tics. Eslinger learned he was one of the founders of the
First Colored Baptist Church in Raleigh. Jones' narra-
tive had only illustrated his life during slavery, and now
Eslinger had in her possession a chunk of information
about his life post-slavery.
"I read through state records and found where he
had worked on the Raleigh and Gaston Railroad
Eslinger said.
She also read through estates records and found how
much he was valued at along with where and when he
was traded among slave holders. By the end of her
search, Eslinger was amazed at the amount of informa-
tion she had come across about Jones.
"I never thought that a man could accumulate so
much information after having been gone over 100
years she said.
The exhibit in the library took 14 months to put
"That is one of the hardest things I've ever had to
do Eslinger said. "How can you cram a man's life into
a display case?
"The project gave me such insight into why I do
what I do
Eslinger also said she was very grateful for being
given the opportunity.
Dr. William L. Andrews and E. Maynard Adams, an
English professor at the University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill, were one of the guest speakers Friday night.
Adams wrote an introduction entitled "The Spirit of
Friday Jones which can be found in the reprinted edi-
tion of the Jones autobiography. He said he is inter-
ested in slave narratives because "the stories are very
American and very inspiring. The people have overcome
tremendous odds to fulfill a great dream
Friday Jones was not just an ordinary slave. He was
a man who stood up for his beliefs and values. Jones
accomplished what so many Americans strive to achieve
in their lifetimes�he was remembered for making a

Pirates destroy Tulane Green Wave in 52-7 victory
Second half offensive
explosion paces team
Stephen Schramm
Earlier this season, Steve Logan was asked if the 1999
team ranked among the best he had seen since coming
to ECU. He said this team was not as explosive and
dynamic on offense as the Pirate teams of the early
90s. At halftime on Saturday, with the Pirates leading
Tulane 14-7, Logan challenged his team to explode.
They did.
The Pirates assured themselves of a winning season
and kept their national ranking intact with a 52-7 win
over Tulane.
"The significance of this victory is not lost on me
Logan said. "To secure a winning season, this early in
the season is really big
In the first half the Pirates only put 14 points on
the board despite holding a commanding lead in al-
most all offensive categories.
"What I feared would happen did happen in the
first half. We were not executing well on offense. The
defense was extraordinary Logan said.
In the first half Tulane's vaunted passing attack only
rung up 133 yards. The Green Wave managed only five
rushing yards in the first two quarters.
"We put in a lot of different blitzes and fortunately
they couldn't pick them up said linebacker Pernell
Griffin. "I was just in there trying to make plays
Griffin finished the first half with an interception
and two sacks.
"The inter-
ception came
from a defen-
sive lineman
getting pressure
on the quarter-
back, and I was
in the right
place at the
right time said
Pernell Griffin.
The Pirates
held the Tulane
offense to 138
yards of total of-
fense in the first
half because of a
defense that
gave Tulane's
Jamie Wilson rushed for 53 yards and
a touchdown (photo by Emily
quarterback, Patrick Ramsey, multiple looks.
"When you play a team like this or any team like
this, you can't rely on one pitch, one coverage or one
style said defensive coordinator Tim Rose. "You have
to have three four five different pitches and have to
have it in your mind to call them even though it may
not be the great thing, but the fact that a hitter doesn't
know when the other pitch is coming or when the
offense doesn't know when the change up is coming
is really critical. So that's what we tried to do
The defense held the Green Wave in check while
the offense misfired in the first half.
"We came out in the first half, and we struggled a
little bit said wide receiver LaMont Chappell. "We
moved the ball really good but we had some turn-
overs that really hurt us and we weren't executing the
offense as we should have
At halftime, Logan challenged his offense to be-
come more explosive.
"I've been after this particular group of offensive
kids to explode, to become dynamic Logan said. "I've
talked to them over and over about that at some point,
they had to just do it, and not be afraid of it. We had
a chance to do it in the first half. They refused to ex-
ecute, time after time after time. At halftime there was
a severe challenge put forth, and they did respond
They responded by putting 38 points on the board
in the second half and burned the Tulane defense for
216 yards of total offense in the third quarter alone.
"We did a-pice job of expressing the offensive game
plan as far as coming out, throwing deep Logan said.
The Pirates got scores on runs from Rashon Burns
and Jamie Wilson and a fumble recovery by Kwabena
Burns, a tight end, lined up at fullback and led all
East Carolina rushers, averaging eight yards per carry.
"I've carried the ball here in practice, but never in
a game said Burns
The use of Burns as a fullback is something the
East Carolina coaches have aimed to do all year.
"Rashon has been lining up at fullback all year
long, we have been running him on the trap play from
time to time Logan said. "Rashon is a freaky type of
athlete, he's really really fast and powerful. So, we have
said all along that at some point that kid was going to
hit a trap play for a touchdown because of his abili-
ties and it happened today
Burns' play at fullback is nothing new for East
Carolina's tight ends.
"We have been very creative here over the last
eleven years with the use of tight ends and he's just
another one of them that we've been able to do some
special things with Logan said.

Volleyball coach resigns after live seasons
Marcus Young slated
to take over position
Stephen Schramm
ECU Head Volleyball Coach, Kim Walker resigned
Thursday. Walker coached the women for five seasons
and amassed a record of 58-90. She leaves a team that is
6-9 overall and 1-3 in conference play.
"It's kind of upsetting anytime your coach decides
to leave said sophomore, setter Lisa Donovan.
Assistant Softball Coach Jenny Parsons has been
named interim head volleyball coach. Parsons played
volleyball for the women 1989 -1992.
"She is here to supervise Donovan said.
Assistant Volleyball Coach Marcus Young will handle
most of the coaching duties. Young, who earned his
master's degree in exercise and sport science from ECU
in 1996, was in his fourth year as an assistant coach.
Young served as head coach for both boys and girls vol-
leyball at Foothill High School1. Young has no previous
head-coaching experience at the college level.
"Marcus should do a fine job said junior middle
hitter, Sarah Kary.
The Lady Pirates began the 1999 season winning
their first five matches. They then traveled to the Mis-
souri Invitational, where they began a seven game los-
ing skid. They beat UNC-Wilmington on October 11
to halt their slide. They lost to Virginia Commonwealth
on October 16. That would be the last match that
Walker would coach.
Walker came to ECU after an assistant coaching stint
at Shaw University and a head coaching job at Indiana
University (Pa.). At 1UP Walker compiled a record of
103-147 from 1988 to 1993.
"We look forward to beginning our search for a head
coach and a new direction for our program said Ath-
letic Director Mike Hamrick.

Women's volleyball
faces top in conference
from page 9
George Mason, American
prove tough competition
Stephen Schramm
On the heels of Head Coach Kim
!Walker's resignation, the women's
Volleyball team took on two impor-
tant conference foes.
"I thought we played well con-
sidering the circumstances said
sophomore setter Lisa Donovan.
J The Pirates faced George Mason
pnd American, both of whom are
near the top of the conference.
These would be the first tests with-
out Walker.
"We used Walker's resignation
to narrow our focus even more and
concentrate on the details and the
'small things said junior middle
hitter Sarah Kary.
The women fell to American 3-
b on Friday.
"American is the best team in
tur conference Donovan said.
f They always go to the NCAA tour-
The Pirates hung with the Eagles
in the first game, losing 10-15.
American won the next two games
15-6 and 15-3, sweeping the
women's team.
"I am pleased with the effort, but
we need to just learn to keep the
pressure on the good teams and not
let them get on scoring runs said
Assistant Coach Marcus Young.
Lucinda Mason led the Pirates
with 12 kills on the night. Cinta
Claro had seven kills along with
eight digs. Sarah Kary added eight
digs as well.
' On Saturday, the women faced
George Mason.
"George Mason was actually a
bigger game, because us, them and
William and Mary are all fighting
for third in the conference
Donovan said.
The Pirates swept the Patriots 15-
5,15-6 and 15-5.
"We really played well and put
pressure on George Mason Young
said. "We took care of the ball and
hit extremely well. We also served
well and kept them out of their sys-
tem. We need to come out like this
every match, staying focused only
on this one match

"We defended well, especially

Donnenwirth said. "Our backs

JMU came back and tied the
game which put a halt to Horton's
five consecutive shutout run with
a goal in the 83rd minute from
JMU's Aimee Grahe off a free kick
from Lenore Bray.
"The weakest point of the game
was giving up a goal in the last five
minutes Horton said.
With the tie in order, ECU and
JMU went into overtime, followed
by double overtime. East Carolina
only recorded four shots in the ex-
tra periods while the Dukes only
had three.
"Overall we played very well
Horton said.
Horton recorded eight saves
and one allowed goal, while James
Madison's Suzanne Wilson re-
corded five saves with one allowed
goal in the 120 minutes of play.
"We played hard the entire
game Horton said.
The loss to Radford marked the "We did not play well today -SSSCSSt

The East Carolinian
Waxer provides
senior leadership
Captain leads team
Jessica Figlar
For the past four years, ECU
soccer fans have had the plea-
sure of watching one of the
University's finest players in ac-
tion. Senior captain Brett Waxer
has contributed more than his
share of skill, leadership and
knowledge to the men's soccer
His hard work and devotion
as not only the team's captain
for three years but as a compan-
ion to his teammates on and off
the field has proved pivotal to
the team's rising success.
"Waxer is a great presence
on and off the field. He's a natu-
ral team leader and always in-
spires us to be our best said
teammate Nick Errato, who's
been playing with Brett since
they were freshmen.
This four-year starter, origi-
nally from Long Island, NY, was
drawn to East Carolina by its
atmosphere and the opportunity
to play soccer. As the team's de-
fender, Brett boasts a personal
record of eight goals and three
assists thus far in his career. He
was nominated Rookie-of-the-
Year as a freshman and was sec-
ond team All-CAA in 1998.
Waxer was most instrumen-
tal to his team last season when
several key players were side-
lined due to injuries. He stepped
it up and scored all three game
winning goals. This season he
won the game opener against
Appalachian State by scoring the
winning goal, posting a 1-0 vic-
One of Brett's strongest
points, however, is the role he
plays as the team's captain.
"He's been very important to
us from a leadership stand
point. I feel strongly about Brett
as a person and I feel very com-
Waxer has consistently lead team
scoring, (photo courtesy of ECU sports
fortable delegating tasks to him
and giving him that leadership
role. I know that he's going to
put the best interest of the team
first said Head Coach Devin
"Brett's been a very good cap-
tain and as a new coaching staff
he has certainly helped our tran-
sition into this job
Brett is majoring in Exercise
and Sports Science and hopes to
possibly pursue a career in high
school or college soccer coach-
As for now, his main focus is
the success of the team and his
personal performance.

Creen got the dream
Senior Nose Guard Kwabena Green scored his first career touch-
down Saturday, returning a Patrick Ramsey fumble 45 yards for the
"I saw the ball and I just thought 'Oh my God, is that the ball?"
Green said. "And then I catch it, And I'm praying that nobody runs me
down, nobody trips me up, because my Mom is here. She has to see
this. It was awesome, best feeling
The fumble allowed Green to show off his speed.
"Well, I've been getting mixed vibes. Some guys said I ran fast. Some
guys said I looked slow out there but I'm going to listen to the guys
that said I ran fast Green said.
Status of the kicking game
Andrew Bayes handled the kicking duties Saturday because starting
kicker, Kevin Miller suffered an injury during warm-ups.
"Kevin Miller pulled a quad muscle in warmups. He's on a medica-
tion that I am holding responsible for that Logan said.
Miller kicked the first extra point was held out after that.
"He came off and he told me 'it hurt' and I said, well thafs the end
of that. I just hope we didn't injure it further Logan said.
Bayes hit one held goal and five extra points.
"We had to let Andrew do everything, and he did a capable Job,
especially on the extra points and field goals. He doesn't kickoff as well
as Kevin but we got through it Logan said.
The versatile Burns
On Saturday, Rashon Burns got playing time at fullback. A change
of position is nothing new for the junior tight end.
"I had to move to linebacker for a while to get my head straight, to
mature a little more Burns said. "At the last practice of Spring ball I
moved back to tight end
Burns' athleticism translates well from position to position.
Bringing up the past
To inspire his team at halftime, Steve Logan brought up the 1994
team. Logan was challenging his team to be more dynamic on offense.
"It's the same confrontation I had with the Marc Crandall group in
1994 Logan said. "Marc Crandall, Larry Shannon, Mitch Galloway
and Jason Nichols, they were all afraid to go and explode. After several
confrontations they decided to do it about the fourth or fifth game of
1994 at South Carolina. That's kind of where I felt this group was at
The talent was there and is there, but we just have to execute. That's
basically what it was all about Logan said.
ECU moved up to No. 17 in both polls and Southern Miss moved
up to No. 20 in the AP poll and No. 19 in the Coaches poll. For the first
time this season, C-USA has two teams in the polls.
"What I really get a kick out of is for us and Southern Mississippi to
lie in the poll at the same time. I mink that its long overdue. In 1996
Southern Miss and East Carolina finished 8-3 and neither one of us we
ranked. So maybe I think there is a coming of age for the conference
that is way overdue Logan said.

Three ways to
beat the high
cost of college
1. The Montgomery Gl Bill
2. Student loan repayment
3. Part-time Income
The Army Reserve Alternate
Training Program is a smart way to
pay for college.
First, if you qualify, the Mont-
gomery GI Bill can provide you with
up to $7,124 for current college ex-
penses or approved votech training.
Second, if you have�or obtain�a
qualified student loan not in default,
you may get it paid off at the rate of
15 per year or $500, whichever is
greater, up to a maximum of $10,000.
Selected military skills can double that
Third, you can earn part-time
money in college, and here's how it
works: One summer you take Basic
Training, and the next summer you
receive skill training at an Army
school. You'll earn over $1,500 for
Basic and even more for skill training.
Then you'll attend monthly meetings
at an Army Reserve unit near your
college, usually one weekend a month
plus two weeks a year. You'll be paid
over $107 a weekend to start. It's
worth thinking about. Give us a call:

Long ago on a dark and stormy night, a s B�B . 0
gated on the campus of East Carolina University to cook-up a cauldron full of
haunting excitement. These creatures conjured up a plan to attract tons of
unsuspecting students to an elaborate Halloween bash loaded with free food,
games, and great prizes.
OK, OK, so it wasn't so long ago, the night was dark but not really
stormy, and there were no witches. It was 1991 and the Division of Student Life
Major Events Committee decided to throw a major party at ECU for Halloween.
This bash, better known as Midnight Madness, has become an annual event,
and it keeps getting better each year.
Midnight Madness 1999 will be held on Sunday, October 31 from 9:00
p.m. to 2:00 a.m. in Mendenhall Student Center. This year's festivities will
include the all new Illusion N' Fusion, a fast-paced virtual reality that is sure to
get your body movin the ever-popular video karaoke, in which you can be the
star you have always dreamed of and take the video home to prove it; open
glow-bowling and billiards; BINGO; a delectable Witches' Brew Concocted of
slimy gook and great prizes, but you have to get down and dirty for the good
stuff; a horrorflick in Hendrix and a horror picture show in the Social Room -
The Rocky Horror Picture Show to be exact with all the props provided (note:
outside props will not be allowed); fortune tellers and a psychic hotline to fore-
cast your future; a costume contest with fabulous cash prizes; the newly named
Club Mystique featuring your favorite DJ, J Arthur; and last but certainly not
least, the monstrous breakfast buffet. And the best thing about this midnight
celebration is that it is all FREE
All you need to do to take part in this spooktacular Halloween bash is
show your valid ECU One Card at the door. You may bring a guest (high school
age or older), but you must obtain a guest pass prior to the event. Guest passes
will be available October 25-29 at the Central Ticket Office in Mendenhall
Student Center from 8:30 a.m - 6:00 p.m. and at the Todd Dining Hall Meal Plan
