Graduate fair to give students
information; educational opportunities
Over 35 programs to be represented
Angela Harne
Undergraduate schools may not face the choice of
a career in the next four years, but will decide to pur-
sue graduate school. The university hopes to make that
selection process easier with their Second Annual
Graduate and Professional School Fair.
Scheduled for Thursday from 10 a.m1:30 p.m. in
the Mendenhall Student Center Multi-Purpose Room,
various schools will be represented.
According to Dr. Cheddar, senior associate dean for
graduate school, many schools are interested in talk-
ing to students about their programs. Schools are look-
ing for focused students who know what they want to
do with their future. They are looking for students who
will bring diversity to their campus.
"It's an excellent opportunity for students to meet
with a variety of schools said Max Poole, associate
dean for the graduate school.
According to Poole, 35 programs will be represented
at the fair.
"It's a great place for graduate and undergraduate
students to make plans for their future Poole said.
"Plus it is a perfect chance for those with their masters'
to inquire about doctoral degrees
According to Cheddar, students should interact with
representatives by asking questions and making sure
they are on the right track.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for students to talk
to all sorts of schools Cheddar said.
According to Poole, students should not be nervous
about talking with graduate school representatives.
"Students should check out the web pages of schools
that are coming so they will have a better feel for which
schools they are interested in Poole said.
"I urge students to come. It is a wonderful chance
for freshmen and sophomores to scope out their op-
tions, and for juniors and seniors to settle down with
their futures
According to Poole, last year's graduate fair was suc-
"Last year the fair went wonderfully Poole said.
"We had over 400 students go through, and the repre-

ents of underage students caught for
alcohol or drug violations will likely
be left up to individual universities
rather than mandated through a
statewide policy if a recommenda-
tion made by the Council of Presi-

each university "develop and adopt

Mau said he and Uhlfelder spoke

Beware of evil apartment complex hijinks
Chris Sachs
There is an evil in this universe
and it has ebbed and flowed its way
across eons of time and space, in
search of the perfect location for it
to take form and lash its coils of
misery and sorrow across the back-
sides of the meek and innocent.
Hundreds become swept by its trac-
tor beam into its sick womb every
year, and thousands more have dis-
covered the dark emptiness and
never-ending carnage that ensues
This evil has no remorse, no
compassion and no soul. So we have
to take a stand now. It can no longer
consume the weak and young for
its pleasure. We must rise up and
fight against this modem-day Satan.
Its name is "Morningwood Apart-
ments" (the name has been changed
to protect the guilty) and it must be
I have a good friend that has
been forced to move into
Morningwood because of the hur-
ricane, and when I asked him where
he relocated to, he replied with a
sneer and a shake of the head. He
was not happy. He knew, just like I
did, that the place sucks and he
fought tooth and nail to not have
to move in there. But compared to
living in a piano crate and burning
schoolbooks for heat, he had no
choice. I asked him about the place
and I got the same negative re-
sponses that I have been getting
from people there for years. In fact,
I have never gotten a positive word
about Morningwood, ever. So after
years of listening to everyone tell me
how bad it is, I decided to check it
out. Here are the findings of my
exhaustive research.
If you don't already know,
Morningwood is located in a flood
zone between Evans Street and
Charles Boulevard next to a set of
railroad tracks�a perfect location
until you are actually able to enter
Hell. The daily train makes as much
noise and vibration as well a
The parking is as strict as a
Catholic school nun and the speed
bumps are the equivalent of driv-
ing over fallen telephone poles.
Unless you own a Humvee, you bet-
ter get ready to buy a new muffler
system. You have to have a sticker
in your window to park there, or in
the guest slots, which are conve-
niently located far from where you
need to be. Towing is quick and
painless, until you have to pay the
guy at the gas station in Wilson.
You have a choice between a
downstairs apartment where the
people upstairs are too loud, or a
second floor apartment where the
people downstairs are too loud. I
have found only one apartment
there that is free from the nightly
noises of partying and mayhem,
and that is at another apartment
complex. The apartments come
with three bedrooms at a ridiculous
price, or three bedrooms plus one
that is the size of a phone booth for
another insane price. The average
monthly rent for an apartment
there is as much as a good divorce,
but a divorce is better: you only get
screwed once. The rent goes up ev-
ery 10 minutes, but the increase
goes to worthy causes. The latest is
a security fence, which probably
cost $50,000 dollars, but the in-
crease in rent over the years will
probably pull in about a million.
The construction is the basic
quality you will find in Greenville.
That is if you hire the Soviet Con-
struction Company. The walls are so
thin they have only one side, and
sound travels so easily through
them that when the people in apart-
ment 101 are done having sex, the
people in apartment 207 light ciga-
rettes. Luckily the floors are thick
so you can pound broomsticks at
the loud upstairs neighbors, or
stomp on the floor at the loud
downstairs neighbors.
The complex offers many activi-
ties to help distract the tenants from
how bad they are being hosed.
There is a basketball court, which is
either full or completely empty. Ei-
ther way, you'll never get in a game.
The weight room is adequate with
a machine to tenant ratio of
1:12,000. At the peak times�which
are whenever you are not in class�
you will be forced to wait until you
die to get on a machine. At that
point rapid weight loss will occur
and it will have served its purpose.
The pool, when not filled to 200
capacity, has plenty of beautiful
people to gaze at and flirt with but
you can't ask any out because you
are too broke from paying practi-
cally illegal amounts of rent. I think
I saw a volleyball court once, but it
looked like a badly constructed cat
box with not enough litter.
The people at the managing of-
fice are Leona Helmsley clones: ea-
ger to take your money, but will be
as mean as a snake on crack when
you try to collect your deposit. I
have heard stories about people try-
ing to get their deposit back that
would make your toenails curl. You
lose hundreds if you forgot to clean
the dust bunnies from behind the
refrigerator and 409 the sidewalk.
Make sure to read the fine print on
your lease when you prepare to
leave. In a nutshell it says, "deposit
will be forfeited upon signing of
Listen to my advice when I say
that Morningwood is a rotten place
to live. Tell new freshmen as they
come in so that they will not fall
prey to the deceptive ads and cool
stereotype that the complex oozes.
For those of you that are trapped
there now, revolt and leave. Take off
in the middle of the night. Sacrifice
your deposit, because you wouldn't
have gotten it back anyway. There
are better places to live. It's up to
you, people. Let's stop the insanity.

Learn to take advantage of decision-making power
Marvelle Sullivan
The term "window of opportunity" refers to the rare
and brief moments that we are given in life to take
advantage of or to do the right thing when confronted
with a situation or decision. These windows seem never
be open at a convenient time, because like most things,
the easiest way to meet confrontation or opportunity
is not the best way. This is the double-edged nature of
life's windows.
Essentially, the easy way to handle a circumstance
is to be a reactor and skirt the issues. For example, when
we feel like we are driving toward a major change,
whether it be graduation, moving away or developing
strong feelings for another individual, it is natural to
automatically hit the mental cruise control and decide
not to think about it. This leads to a propensity to be
the kind of person who consistently avoids rather than
confronts both opportunities and adversities. At the
same time, we shouldn't slam on the gas and drive a
situation straight into oncoming traffic, but we defi-
nitely shouldn't let someone we don't know steer for
Learning to recognize and act when the windows
of opportunity are open is only achieved through a
series of hard lessons, which conclude in the finding
that once again a window is shut, and there is no turn-
ing back. We can't even pry them open again, and
people spend lifetimes trying to get back the day when
ail their windows were wide open.
The effect of being passive and dism issing our open
windows is not felt immediately. Rather, the pains of
hindsight and an uncomfortable discontent result upon
the realization that a career, academic or personal op-
portunity was right there for the taking, but a decision
not to act was made so that the risk of failure, chal-
lenge or rejection would be avoided. Remember that
deciding not to decide is still a major decision.
This is not to say that we should live like impulsive
idiots, trying to fly out of any open window we see.
However, we should be ready to assume direct respon-
sibility for our life, especially while in college. A wise
person once said that the greatest power in one's life is
the power to determine one's own after. This power is
contingent uppn being proactive, making the harder
choices and capitalizing on open windows rather than
becoming a "runner" who always wonders what might
have been.

linian on Tuesday, Oct. 26, written
by Jonathan Cray, Homecoming
candidate of the National Student
Speech-Language Hearing Associa-
tion (NSSLHA). I'm sorry that
Jonathan felt the treatment of the
ECU SGA Student Homecoming
Committee was unfair. Not ail les-
sons in life are learned easily or
without cost. We do, however, re-
spect Jonathan's right to express his
feelings but we want you to consider
the committee's side of the decision.
The committee's decision to dis-
qualify Jonathan Cray was based on
fairness, principle and precedent.
First, it would not have been fair
to the other 46 organizations and
52 candidates if we had allowed a
candidate who had campaigned to
continue to be considered.
Secondly, in the appeal process,
Jonathan in fact, admitted to cam-
paigning. Jonathan defense is that
he did not know the rules. As a
matter of principle, if the campaign-
ing had resulted in him being on
the court, it would have been un-
fair to the 52 candidates who did
not campaign. Examples of cam-
paigning were gone over at the
mandatory meeting on Monday,
Oct. 4. In fact, this exact example
was cited at the mandatory meet-
ing as illegal campaigning. Jonathan
was not in attendance at that meet-
ing, but a representative of NSSLHA
Finally, the committee made its
decision based on precedent. In pre-
vious years, people who had cam-
paigned in similar ways had been
Jonathan made several refer-
ences about the poor distribution of
information. During the appeal pro-
cess and in his letter he offered sug-
gestions on how to improve the dis-
tribution process. We stated during
the appeal that we would incorpo-
rate those suggestions into next
year's process. The committee, how-
ever, did not feel that his sugges-
tions absolved him or his
organization's responsibility to fol-
low the rules.
This information was distributed
in many ways. We provided the
packets in every registered student
organization mailbox on Aug. 17,
1999 at the Student Leadership De-
velopment office in Mendenhall. At
the same time, we sent a general
announcement through PC Ex-
change to every faculty and staff
member at ECU that is on the list.
The packets were available for
pickup at a number of locations in
Mendenhall. Ads were run with the
deadline information and where to
pick up packets in TEC in every is-
sue of the paper through Sept. 17.
After Hurricane Floyd, we ran an ad
in TEC on Sept. 30 with all new
deadline and meeting information
times and dates.
We also sent out another gen
eral announcement to all faculty '
and staff with the new information, t
There were also flyers, posters and!
announcements on WZMB and our
Web site. The members of the com-
mittee spoke at every major urn
hi-pii organization meeting
We are sorry for your aisqualifi- -
cation, Jonathan. You have handled,
the circumstances admirably up to
this point. I'm truly sorry you failed
to recognize that the committee '
made every effort to hear your side �
of the story in a very limited!
amount of time. We tried to under- ;
stand the circumstances surround
ing your appeal, but we are disap
pointed that you have failed to 11s-

opinion writer
Let us say, hypothetically, that
a student enrolled here at ECU has
done so with the intent of pursuing
a higher education. Just hypotheti-
cally. It follows then that that per-
son desires the best resources they
can possible have including a nice
campus, accessible library, useful
textbooks and most importantly,
wise and caring professors to assist
Student-teacher relationships vital
and guide them through their
course of studies.
Being the human component of
a students collective education, the
university professor is instrumental
in keeping them focused and
headed in the right direction. So,
what happens when this key ele-
ment is not performing at a high
level? Unhappiness and frustration
on the part of the student.
How many of you have walked
into a class on the first day only to
hear something like, "Look to your
left, then look to your right. One of
you three is going to fail My ad-
vice in this situation is to stand up
and walk out right then because,
like it or not, this professor doesn't
want you in their class. The prob-
lem is that sometimes you can't
postpone the class and there no
other sections open so you are
forced to deal with Dr. Poopypants
for five months.
How about the teacher who
doesn't have discernible office hours
because they are sincerely uninter-
ested in dealing with students one
on one. These individuals are the
tumors of the educational system,
causing problems in the flow of
ideas. They have their research and
teaching priorities reversed.
Of course this is a two-way
street. It is the responsibility of both
the student and the professor to
make the personal connection; that
extra something that is lacking in a
book or Internet course. Find your
professor's office, visit him or her
frequently and don't be afraid to ask
questions and speak up in class.
Don't miss your classes because
once you do, it will become clear to
the professor you are uninterested
and their responsibility diminishes.
Don't make it easy on the pro-
fessor; demand excellence and you
shall have it most of the time.
There is nothing you can do about
the bad apples except avoid them
at all costs. If you are forced upon
an unwilling teacher you can let
the department head know how -
you feel at the end of the semester I
with a written letter. You won't�
believe the power of words. Be
open and demanding, until we
meet again.

Causes for celebration
Christmas, annual Christian holiday commemo-
rating the birth of Jesus Christ. Most members of the
Roman Catholic Church and followers of Protestant-
ism celebrate Christmas on December 25, and many
celebrate on the evening of December 24 as well.
Chinese New Year, celebration of the new year in
Chinese communities around the world. The date of
the Chinese new year is determined by the lunar cal-
endar, so festivities begin with the new cycle of the
moon that falls between January 21 and February 19.
Each year is named for one of 12 symbolic animals in
sequence. The animals, in their sequential order, are
the rat, ox, tiger, hare, dragon, serpent, horse, ram,
monkey, rooster, dog and boar.
St. Valentine's Day probably derives from the an-
cient Roman feast of Lupercalis (February 15). The
festival gradually became associated with the feast
day (February 14) of two Roman martyrs, both
named St. Valentine, who lived in the 3rd century. St.
Valentine has traditionally been regarded as the pa-
tron saint of lovers.
April Fools Day, the first day of April. On this day it
is customary in the United States and Western Eu-
rope to play jokes on people, causing them to believe
some falsehood or to go on a fruitless errand.
� Memorial Day, legal holiday, observed annually
an the last Monday in May in most of the United
States, in honor of the nation's armed services per-
sonnel killed in wartime. The holiday, originally called
Decoration Day, is traditionally marked by parades,
memorial speeches
and ceremonies, and the decoration of graves
with flowers and flags, hence the original name. Me-
morial Day was first observed on May 30,1868.
Halloween, holiday observed on the evening of
October 31 in most areas of North America and in
some areas of Western Europe. The holiday is sym-
bolically associated with death and the supernatural.
Halloween falls on the eve of All Saints' Day, also
known as Allhallows or Hallowmas, a holy day in the
Roman Catholic and Anglican churches. Originally a
pagan festival of the dead, All Saints' Day was estab-
lished by the Catholic Church in the 9th century to
honor Christian saints. All Souls' Day, a holy day es-
tablished by the Catholic Church in the 10th century,
is also closely linked to Halloween.
Thanksgiving Day, legal holiday observed annu-
ally in the United States on the fourth Thursday of
November. In Canada, Thanksgiving falls on the sec-
ond Monday in October. Most people celebrate
Thanksgiving by gathering with family or friends for a
holiday feast. Thanksgiving was first celebrated by
Pilgrims and Native Americans in colonial New En-
gland in the early 17th century. Its actual origin, how-
ever, probably traces to harvest festivals that have
been traditional in many parts of the world since an-
cient times. Today Thanksgiving is mainly a celebra-
tion of domestic life, centered on the home and fam-

Performing Arts Series features Harry Belafonte
Musical artist given
Greenville's city key
Susan Wright
For 38 years, the S. Rudolph Alexander Performing
Arts Series at ECU has been bringing some of the world's
finest artists to Greenville. Last Thursday, musician
Harry Belafontperformed in Wright Auditorium, and
he was also given the key to the city by Mayor Nancy
Jenkins for his humanitarian efforts.
According to Carol Woodruff, marketing director
for student unions, the Performing Arts Series has
earned itself a prestigious reputation during the 38 years
it has been here in Greenville.
"The Series has a history of bringing in the greats
Woodruff said.
Although the series is more commonly known for
the classical talent, or the artists who specialize in fine
arts performance, that it brings to ECU, there are also a
variety of different types of talents invited to perform.
"We have expanded the kinds of artists that we bring
in Woodruff said. "Mr. Belafonte, although he's a clas-
sic, is more of a pop artist. We are trying to advance
the variety of our series. The series tends to run the
gamut of operas, piano concerts and chamber groups.
We usually bring in some plays or musicals and every
now and then a pop artist like Mr. Belafonte
The audience is composed of ECU students and staff,
but also of community members in Greenville and all
of Eastern North Carolina. 85 percent of the seats that
are sold for every performance are bought by Series
subscribers, and the other 15 percent, called individual
tickets, are sold for each specific performance. About
half of all of the shows sell out, and the other half sell
about 90 percent of the tickets available. The audito-
rium is almost always full.
The audience is composed of people from all re-
gions in North Carolina,people come from as far as
Raleigh and Chapel Hill to the west and Havelock to
the east. According to Woodruff, all of the people who
come have a similar belief; the performers in the Series
will be great. "One of things that is really exciting is
the way that the audience has learned to trust the Se-
ries Woodruff said. "They believe that we are going
to be bringing in the best, and you can really sense
their trust because they subscribe and attend
frequently.They claim the Series as their own and they
are really proud of it
The series, in part, belongs to the audience and the
subscribers. Every show, there is a "60 Second Survey"
in the program for the audience to fill out. Their input

performers to bring to Greenville.
"We put a survey in every program and evaluate
the program that night Woodruff said. "We also ask
them to evaluate the audience to request others who
they would like to see perform in the future. We re-
view those at every meeting and we take those into
consideration. There are some things that we obviously

well almost
Before long, sidewalks will be cluttered with Santa's swinging
bells, mistletoe will be hanging from every door and flashing lights
will be sparkling all over the city. But Christmas is still over eight
weeks away. So why does everyone start decorating and getting
ready so early?
According to Marsha
Fleenor, assistant manager of
Hallmark, decorating for Hall-
mark stores starts in July.
"We always display our
new Hallmark Ornament the
third Saturday in July and that
starts everything in full
swing Fleenor said. She said
their merchandise arrives in
the beginning of July and
they really start displaying
things in mid September to
early October. The crowds
always want to start shop-
ping early, especially for
"limited time only" prod-
ucts that Hallmark carries.
However, according
to a student survey, 72
percent of students sur-
veyed said that stores do
start putting out Christ-
mas decorations too
early. Eighty -three per-
cent of the students said
that stores should not
put out Christmas
merchandise before
Thanksgiving and 94
percent said they
should not put out
decorations before Halloween. Then why do they? Who
started the phenomena that we all know now as the "Christmas
Stores originally began advertising "Christmas shopping" in
1820. Then, in 1840 newspapers began creating separate sections
for holiday advertisements and began featuring pictures of the new
image of Santa Clause. In 1841, a shop in Philadelphia lured thou-
sands of children in to see a life-size Santa Clause model. Today
there are live Santa Clauses, Christmas tree decorating contests,
wishing trees for underprivileged children, and several other types
of paraphernalia to
draw in customers.
So the shopping sea-
son kept getting
pushed further and fur-
ther back to accommo-
date all of the new attrac-
tions to see and do.
"We start putting out
the Christmas merchandise
around the first week in No-
vember and usually have all
of it out by Thanksgiving
said Rodney Matthews, Bclk
store manager. The store's main
buying season begins around the
end of October.
Based on the student poll, 56
percent of the students interviewed
said that they do not like shopping
with crowds but only 33 percent buy
their Christmas presents early. So even
if most people do not like to deal with
the crowds of people that start to accumu-
late after Thanksgiving, they still procrastinate
and wait until the last minute to buy presents.
As everyone knows, the main Christmas rush be-
gins the day after Thanksgiving. Stores throw their big-
gest sales, thousands of people venture out onto the packed
highways and into the malls and department stores to shop
for bargains and special discounts. The student poll revealed
that 56 percent of students do go shopping on that Friday.
"1 start shopping after Thanksgiving and it usually takes me at
least a week to get everything for Christmas said freshman
Deborah Keller.
� She's not alone with the amount of time it takes her. Every
student in the poll said it always took them more than one shop-
ping trip to get everything and to find the perfect gifts.
J.C Penney, however, is one store that goes against the norms
of Christmas shopping. According to Randy Shoulrz, the Store
Manager, their biggest sale is on Nov. 6. This year that falls on a
"It was a tradition that was started about five years ago and it
is for the entire chain of J.C. Penney stores Shoultz said.
While several chain department stores have the most custom-
ers the day after Thanksgiving, that is not the case for most J.C.
Penney stores.
"This sale is bigger for J.C. Penney than the day after Thanks-
giving is as far as the amount of sales and customers Shoulrz said.
J.C. Penney started displaying Christmas merchandise two
weeks ago and everything has to be completed by Nov. 1 in order
to get ready for the Nov. 6 sale. That is the kick off for the shop-
ping season and it goes strong all the way until Christmas for J.C.
Are all of the decorations and displays really necessary?
Sixty-one percent of the students polled said that Christmas
was too commercialized. However, most students added in that
although they thought it was too commercialized, they liked it
that way.
Have a planned list written out of who you have to buy for,
possible gift ideas and the stores that would carry those gifts. It
might even be a good idea to separate the list into people you
absolutely have to buy for, such as family and close friends, and
then people you will buy for as long as money allows, such as
coworkers and distant friends. That will help you to establish a
budget and get an idea of what you can get now and what you
should wait to buy. Above all, take extra precautions once the
Christmas rush really kicks again against angry drivers, thieves,
and people out to scam people.
Christmas will be here in just eight weeks, so it's time to start
planning and getting organized now.

Student interest in politics steadily declining
Involvement in government
diminished since Reagan
Nina M. Dry
If someone were to ask you to name the senators of
North Carolina, could you confidently answer? Would
you have to think about it or would a blank stare come
over your face as you think of a clever way of changing
the subject?
Over the last two decades, there has been a distinct
decline in the number of students who are actively in-
volved in the politics of the world around them.
Recently, studies have shown that in the 1996 presi-
dential elections, only 32 percent of young adults be-
tween the ages of 18 and 24 voted and in the 1998
congressional elections, less than 20 percent voted.
According to Dr. Richard Kearney, chair of the po-
litical science department, the 1960s and early 70s
were a very challenging time for young people. It was
a time where many were questioning the government
and the issues that politicians were debating.
The draft during the Vietnam War affected many
oung people. It was around the late 1970s, early '80s
when a diminish in students' political involvement
took place.
"This was the era when Ronald Reagan became
president, bringing about conservative politics
Kearney said. "Instead of seeking change, conserva-
tive politicians accepted the status quo. This doesn't
engage students
Students put more effort into studying and other pursuits
' than keeping up with the action in political events. (Photo by
Chriss Rodrigues)
Some students believe that the government and its
current issues do not pertain to them.
"The government is involved with health plans and
social security reforms said Brooke Allen, junior. "We
don't worry about that because it doesn't apply to us
right now
"Why should we be informed?" said senior Danielle
Custis. "We have no conflicts with our government like
other countries�it pretty much runs itself
Some people believe that if children grow up in an
environment that doesn't focus on political issues, it's
unlikely that they will seek it out on their own.
"If you're not brought up around it or exposed to it
at an earlier age, you're more likely to find other things
that interest you more said sophomore Stacey Pinney.
According to political science professor Dr. Carl
McCurley, people get drawn into politics when it in-
volves something that affects them directly, and right
now, life in the United States is pretty good.
"Political equality has come to people pretty easily
for United States citizens McCurley said. "In Africa,
Asia and India, they had to work really hard for their
political rights
Although they seem far and wide in between, there
are students who are interested in what the govern-
ment has to offer.
"I find politics interesting said senior Julie Wil-
son. "I like knowing how the government works and
to know how the people who are running my city, state
and country are doing things '�
So how do we get more students more involved with
their government? According to Kearney, to acquire
change, one must gain knowledge.

Tuesday, Nov. 2, 1999
Former Chicago Bears running back Walter Payton
died at his suburban Chicago home, Monday. He was
Payton suffered from primary sclerosing cholan-
gitis, a condition that affects the liver. Payton was on
a liver transplant waiting list for the past nine
. Payton was drafted by the Bears in 1975 out of
Jackson State. He played for the Bears from 197S to
1,987. He holds the record for most career rushing
yards with 16,726.
"There are better runners than Walter said
former Bears head coach, Mike Ditka, "but he's the
best football player I ever saw. To me that's the ulti-

Payton won the MVP twice in his career and won
the Super Bowl in 1985.

Slow start dooms
Rams in clash of Titans

' Quick starts had made the St. Louis Rams the NFL's
last undefeated team. On Sunday, they couldn't get
going fast enough. Steve McNair, playing his first
game in six weeks following back surgery, threw for
two touchdowns and ran for another as the Tennes-
see Titans held on for a 24-21 victory over the Rams
in an unlikely clash of this year's NFL powers. The
litans (6-1) outscored the Rams 21-0 in the first 14
minutes�more points than St. Louis (6-1) had given
up in any game this season.
r- "We wanted to see how they would react being
pown said Titans safety Blaine Bishop. "They hadn't
teen down all year, blowing everybody out. They
Came back out fighting in the second half. Hatj off
to them. They came back, but we did enough to Win
' Kurt Warner, whose two fumbles led to two first-
quarter touchdowns, rallied St. Louis by throwing
three touchdown passes in the second half. With no
timeouts, Warner needed nine plays to get the Rams
to the Titans' 19 with time running out. St. Louis
ran Jeff Wilkins out to try a 38-yard field goal, but
his kick missed wide right with five seconds left. The
Rams thoWhtthey would get one more chance
thanks to aflag. But officials ruled that Titans line-
backer Terry Killens had been blocked into Wilkins
by Mike Gruttadauria.
Browns'prayer silences Saints
With time running out on what looked like their
eighth consecutive loss, the Cleveland Browns were
desperate. They were also armed. The combination
added up to the first victory for the first-year expan-
sion team and a shocking sixth straight loss for the
New Orleans Saints. Tim Couch, who already had
thrown two scoring passes, completed a desperation
56-yard touchdown heave to Kevin Johnson with no
time on the clock Sunday for a 21-16 victory.
Moore, 24, killed
in horrifying CART crash
Greg Moore was killed Sunday in the season-end-
ing CART race when he lost control of his car at 220
mph and crashed into a wall, spinning wildly and
slamming into the ground several times. The 24-year-
old Canadian, a budding star in the open-wheel cir-
cuit, was airlifted to a hospital and declared dead of
massive head injuries about an hour after the wreck
at California Speedway. He almost missed the race
after he hurt his hand when a car hit him Saturday
while he was riding a scooter in the paddock area.
Moore was the second driver in the CART FedEx Se-
ries to die this year. Moore lost control of his car com-
ing off Turn 2 on that lap in virtually the same spot.
Television replays showed the Reynard-Mercedes
skidded onto the infield grass, became airborne and
crashed hard into a retaining wall, with Moore ap-
parently striking his head on the concrete. The car
then broke into pieces, with the open-cockpit driver's
compartment spinning and hitting the ground sev-
eral times before coming to a halt.
Moore was declared dead at Loma Linda Medical
Center after resuscitation efforts failed, said Dr. Steve
Olvey, director of medical affairs for CART.
Defense shuts dovn
Houston rushing attack
Stephen Schramm
On Saturday, the Pirates overcame soggy condi-
tions, a sticky defense and strong rushing attack to
beat the Houston Cougars 19-3.
"We found a different way to win this week. That
is what good teams will do said head coach Steve
Logan. "It was a gratifying victory as they had a tough
defense that really shut us down in the second half.
No one had any offense, but our defense just hap-
pened to be better than theirs
The Pirates took the lead in the first quarter on a
36-yard touchdown pass from David Garrard to Keith
Stokes. Garrard scored in the second, running un-
touched into the end zone from 11 yards out. The Pi-
rate offense would be shut out for the rest of the game.
"We were able to recognize most of their forma-
tions and get in the places we needed to be said Hous-
ton linebacker Wayne Rogers. "We kept them from
running and passing for the most part all day, but
David Garrard still made plays. He is a great quarter-
back and very tough to bring down
Houston held the Pirates to 223 yards of total of-
While the offense was shut down from the second
quarter on, the Pirate defense bottled up the Cougar
"They're a good defensive football team said
Houston head coach Kim Helton. "We knew that when
they came in here
The Pirates held the Cougars' feared rushing game
to only 147 yards.
"Shutting down Sanford wis huge said head
coach Steve Logan, "It was a tremendous effort on our
part. He is as good a running back as there is in the
conference and one of the best in the country. For us
to hold him below was a testament to what Defensive
Coordinator Tim Rose is doing on that side of the ball
Metric Sanford rushed for 72 yards on 20 carries
while teammate, Mike Green gained 72 yards on only
eight carries.
"As well as our defense played today, theirs played
much better said Houston lineman Adriano Belli. "It
was horrible
The Pirates held a 13-3 lead for much of the game.
In the fourth quarter, Anthony Adams picked off a Ja-
son McKinley pass and ran it 55 yards back for a touch-
"We told the defense a long time ago that if they
did not give up long plays and were on the field long
enough, they would get the big play Logan said.
"That's what happened here today
The Pirates picked off the Cougars three times on
the afternoon. Kevin Monroe grabbed two interceptions
and Adams snatched the third.
Despite the big plays by the Pirate secondary, the
Cougars were able to move the ball through the air
with some success. Houston racked up 216 passing
yards. Houston's Orlando Iglesias caught 12 passes for
130 yards.
"We were able to move the ball most of the day
Iglesias said, "but once we got to their side of the field,
we shot ourselves in the foot. We either had a holding
penalty or we would turn the ball over
Both teams lost over 100 yards due to penalties.
ECU was penalized 11 times for 107 yards while the
Cougars were flagged 10 times for 117 yards.
The game saw five blocked kicks. The Cougars
blocked two ECU extra points and a field goal, while
the Pirates blocked two Houston field goal attempts.
"I thought two good teams played Helton said.
"We got more penalties than they did and it was a close
game. Obviously very disappointing in the domina-
tion of the kicking game, we had two field goals
blocked, which is not like us Helton said.

Women's soccer loses to Wake Forest; beats State
Lady pirates first ever win
against ACC team
Tiffany Waters
The women's soccer team came
up with a 2-0 loss to number 11
nationally ranked Wake Forest Uni-
versity and a 1-0 win to North Caro-
lina State University in overtime
this weekend to record there first
ever win against an ACC team.
"They are the best team we've
played all year said Head Coach
Rob Donnenwirth. "They really

The Demon Deacons came out
strong and never gave up. In the
20:00 minute, forward Joline
Charlton shot a goal from 15 yards
out off a pass from Emily Taggart to
give WFU a 1-0 lead.
"I think the second half we
showed we can play with any team
no matter rank said junior forward
Kim Sandhoff.
It took WFU only six minutes to
give themselves an insurance goal
when Stacy Roek connected on a
header from Lindsey Griffin's cor-
ner kick.
"The way we possessed and did
well against an ACC team showed
we can beat any team said Senior
Defender Dana Durbin. "It gave us
confidence going into the CAA tour-
The women tried to come back
in the second half but the Deacon

pirates to handle. "Basically what

Pirate Notes
Kicking woes
ECU kicker Kevin Miller did not travel with the
team to Houston for Saturday's game. Miller did not
play due to a pulled quad muscle while warming up
before the Tulane Game.
In Miller's absence, Brantley Rivers returned to
the lineup to handle kickoffs while punter Andrew
Bayes took over the field goal duties.
The blocked extra point in the second quarter
marked the first time the Pirates have failed to con-
vert on a PAT this season.
Bayes, the nation's leading punter, kicked a ca-
reer-long 78-yard punt. Bayes has four punts of longer
than 70 yards this season.
Home field advantage
ECU'S win was the third win by a visiting team
in the three game series between the two teams.
ECU beat Houston 28-27 in 1997. The Cougars
topped the Pirates 34-31 in Greenville in 1998. ECU
leads the series 2-1.
Stokes' hard luck
In the second half, ECU'S Keith Stoke� had an
80-yard punt return called back because of a pen-
alty. It was the third time this season Stokes has had
a return called back. Against Army, Stokes returned
two punts for apparent scores before they were called
back. Stokes has still not returned a punt fora touch-
down this season.
Don't throw to Monroe
ECU cornerback, Kevin Monroe netted two in-
terceptions Saturday. Monroe tied his career record
for interceptions in a game. He picked off two against
Houston in 1998. Of his seven career interceptions,
four have come against Houston.
Women's soccer
heads to CAA tourney
Kim Sandhoff (left) and Amy Horton(right) lead the Pirates in to the CAA tournament (file photo).
Tiffany Waters
The CAA Women's Soccer Tournament begins to-
day at 3 p.m. in Virginia at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex
and ends Sunday with the championship game at 1:30
p.m. Many wonder who will face who and who is ex-
pected to go all the way.
"We are in very balanced conference. The number
seven seed could win the tournament said ECU
Women's Soccer Head Coach Rob Donnenwirth.
Expecting to hold the first and second seed posi-
tions are the College of William and Mary and James
Madison University.
"They are both good teams, Donnenwirth said. "Re-
gardless if they win the CAA Tournament, both should
be in the NCAA Tournament W and M will look to
Missy Wycinsky, who has 13 goals for the season, and
Jordan Krieger, who has 10 goals for the season, to lead
the way through the tournament.
"Missy Wycinsky is probably the best scorer in the
conference, Donnenwirth said. JMU will look to their
great team speed to guide them through the tourna-
ment. The third seed is set in stone�ECU has clinched
the position.
"We have to believe we can win Donnenwirth said.
To lead the Pirates, Donnenwirth is looking for his backs
to continue to keep up the strong defense. Senior goal-
keeper Amy Horton and junior forward Kim Sandhoff
are expected to play key parts in the games as well.
ECU is currently ranked in the Southeastern region.
"I think the SE region is the most difficult region
Donnenwirth said.
With five goals for the year, Erin Cann is expected
to excel during the tournament.
Fighting for the fourth and fifth seeds are the Uni-
versity of North Carolina at Wilmington and George
Mason University. UNCW's Christy Timbers will lead
the Seahawk offense with three goals. If UNCW fin-

11-4-1 to set a school record for the most school wins
as well as beating NCSU 1-0 in their first ever win
against the Atlantic Coast Conference.
ECU dominated the first half outshooting the
wolfpack 10-3, but we're unable to convert a goal. The
wolfpack came out strong the second half outshooting

home season
Emily Koperniak
ECU'S men's soccer team had a
tough week of competition at home
against William & Mary and Ameri-
can University.
Last Wednesday, William &
Mary defeated the Pirates in a 4-1
victory. Getting a head start, Will-
iam & Mary scored the first goal of
the game in the fifth minute. A pen-
alty kick brought the score to 2-0
before half time.
"We played tough. We had a few
minor lapses and a rough start said
Nate Douglas.
The Pirates fought back during
the second half recording eleven
shots equal to the number of Will-
iank&.Mary's.Scoring his first goal
of the season, Greg Hoffman scored
during the 59th minute. This goal
was made after Nick Errato's shot re-
bounded off the crossbar. The game
ended with two more goals made
by the Tribe.
"We gave a good effort; we had
a couple of let downs. William &
Mary are a very good team said
Brett Waxer.
Freshmen R.J. Marvinney held
the goalkeeper position for the en-
tire game. Marvinney tallied three
saves and four goals allowed.
The Pirates battled American

the 33rd minute.
"We played well enough to win
We wanted to win badly. We'
wanted to win the ball, but it was
like we couldn't control ourselves,
Nate Douglas said.American Uni-
versity scored during the second
half in the 66th minute. Douglas
increased the lead when he scored
in the 79th minute.
The Eagles came back into the
game and scored two goals in the
last five minutes, causing overtime.
American University scored in the
104th minute to win the game.
"We played well, we just didn't
get the results. We could have won
either way said Dino Stambolitis.

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, ifcyou 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

school. You'll earn over $1,500 for
Basic and even more for skill training.
Then you'll attend monthly meetings

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:
