ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
When Hurricane Floyd
ripped through our state seven
weeks ago, everyone at ECU was
affected in one way or another.
For some students, the losses
they suffered were so great that
they needed to withdraw from
school to deal with them.
Following the disaster, the
university quickly implemented
a Hurricane Relief Center and
other programs to assist students
in their recovery. The adminis-
tration brought in external coun-
seling and relief services, gave
out direct grants of $100, relaxed
the class drop schedule to enable
students to lighten their course
load if necessary and started a
book loan program so that stu-
dents would not have to repur-
chase books that had been dam-
aged or lost.
According to Laura Sweet,
assistant dean of students, 82 stu-
dents clearly stated that they
were quitting school as a direct
result of the flooding that fol-
lowed the hurricane.
"Students needed to quit
school for various reasons related
to the hurricane said Dean of
Students, Dr. Ronald Speier.
"Some withdrew because they
lost their homes and could no
longer afford to go to school.
We even had one student who
lost his home here, and his fam-
ily lost their home in Duplin
The administration made
many efforts to make it possible
for students to continue to stay
in school even if they had suf-
fered heavy losses.
"When a student considers
withdrawing from school in any
case, we sit down with them
and conduct an exit interview,
where we try to identify the
problems the student is facing
Sweet said. "In the case of the
hurricane, if a student identified
the problem as emotional or fi-
nancial we directed them over
to the counseling center or to
financial aid to see if they could
be of any help
The Office of Financial Aid
was able to find about $80,000
worth of additional grant
money and increase the
amount of loans available for
students. In addition to this,
those who officially withdrew
from the university before Oct.
25 received at least a 25 percent
refund of their tuition and fees.

If it had not been for admin-
istrative measures, it is
probable that many more of
our students may have
been forced to withdraw
from school to deal with the
aftermath of the disaster.
Hurricane Floyd and the flooding that followed presented eastern NC
and ECU with more challenges then anyone could have ever imagined.
Chancellor Eakin reminded students the semester was not lost and
named many of the university's resources that were available, but for 82
of our students, the stress of picking up the pieces and continuing their
education at the same time proved to be too much to handle at one time.
The administration worked with us to help replace textbooks, file for
federal aid and provided additional counseling, academic and financial
aid services. At the Hurricane Relief Center, students were given $100 on
the spot to help with immediate needs. The period to drop classes was
extended and students could maintain 9 instead of 12 hours and still be
considered full-time. The Financial Aid Office searched for and found ad-
ditional grant money that could be given to students in need. If it had not
been for administrative measures, it is probable that many more of our
students may have been forced to withdraw from school to deal with the
aftermath of the disaster.
While the rest of us may groan about our lost vacation days and grumble
about the increased work load in our classes, we are fortunate that we
have been able to recover enough that we are still able to carry on most of
our usual routines.
It is tragic that the disaster affected some of our students in virtually
every aspect of their lives and turned them upside down. We at TEC hope
that in their time away, they are able to regain normalcy as quickly as
possible so that they can return to ECU to continue their education.
jcHes dump truck
R.W. Hobbs, Jr.
Sometimes life imitates life.
George W. Bush was jogging along
the street Monday when he heard a
dump truck behind him. To avoid
being hit, Bush leaped out of the
way. He consequently suffered a
bruise and minor abrasions, how
In the political scene, Bush has
been jogging along in the polls. The
dump truck here are the candidates
who showed up for the Republican
town hall meeting which was aired
ltve on CNN. Bush avoided the de-
bate, and some say he was hurt by
not showing up. Many candidates
licked their chops knowing that
Bush not being there was a good op-
portunity to show how he does not
care to connect with the people.
Campaign finance reform was a
topic of discussion that was thrown
around a lot at the meeting. George
W. Bush is known for his unlimited
financial resources. Some candi-
dates used last week's town hall
meeting to exploit Bush's abuse of
the campaign finance system.
A couple of candidates took the
opportunity to "dump" on Bush for
not showing up. One of the mod-
erators asked a question made by
someone who could not attend the
meeting. Taking a snap at Bush,
Gary Bauer, a Republican presiden-
tial candidate said, "are you sure
that question didn't come from
Steve Forbes, another candidate,
took a hard stab at Bush, mention-
ing that he missed a visit to a school
for underprivileged students in fa-
vor of a fund-raiser. Forbes suggested
that if they called the debates fund-
raisers, perhaps Bush would show
With Elizabeth Dole out of the
race, Sen. John McCain takes a
strong second place to George W.
Bush. Attending this town meeting
has given him a boost in the polls,
and McCain continues to tighten up
his second place position.
Bush says he will be involved in
debates later on in December, but
many believe his absence at this
most decent town meeting has hurt
him at least temporarily.
Which brings me back to the
story of the dump truck�Bush can
leap out of the way, but that doesn't
guarantee that he won't get hurt.
Others may even move past him.
Bush needs to be very careful with
each political move he makes.
Right now, he's enjoying a com-
fortable lead, but Al Gore is suppos-
edly changing his image, and John
McCain is gaining on him. So, Bush
is right to look forward to his presi-
dential inevitability, but he should
also keep an eye out for the many
dump trucks behind him that can't
wait to drop their piles to get ahead.

Helms deserves no criticism
for blocking nomination
I don't know if any of you have been reading the
papers, but a story has come to my attention that I feel
I must address. There is currently a fire storm of debate
going on right now in our nation's Capitol concerning
the nomination of Carol Mosely-Brown to the posi-
tion of ambassador to New Zealand. OK, 1 know many
of you don't care about that crap, but I'll try and make
it worth your while by saying something stupid.
The debate has arisen mainly because of North Caro-
lina Sen. Jesse Helms' staunch opposition to the nomi-
nation. Helms is receiving unwarranted attacks because
some people think he is carrying out a personal ven-
detta against Mosely-Brown, who blocked the patent
renewal of the United Daughters of the Confederacy's
logo which contained the Confederate Battle Flag.
Mosely-Brown's blocking of the routine patent renewal
came after numerous speeches in which she attacked
the group and its logo stating that it was a representa-
tion of slavery and that it was offensive to black people.
She also said Helms is out to get her because he sung
pixie while in an elevator. Please wait while I try to
sop my sobbing and wipe the tears from my eyes. No
matter how hard I try, I cannot fathom this group of-
fending her enough for her to do this; the flag repre-
sents heritage, not hate.
The United Sons and Daughters of the Confederacy
are groups that were formed to remember those who
fought and gave their lives in defense of the South
during the Civil War. These groups represent no ha-
tred towards black people or fond remembrance of sla-
very. They are simple pride organizations who struggle
in today's world to keep these veterans' memory alive.
Mosely-Brown's ignorant crusade and personal ven-
detta against them shows that she does not have the
open mind needed to be ambassador of anything.
Helms' opposition relies mainly on the fact that Mosely-
Brown used left over campaign money for personal
luxuries, thus violating ethics rules. She has also been
linked to third world despots and certain agencies
whose ideals are clearly questionable.
Mosely-Brown deserves no position of representa-
tion of anyone in this country. She does not represent
me and I applaud Helms' fiery opposition to her nomi-
nation. I vote for anyone who comes up against him
in an election and personally I despise the man. But
for what he is crusading for right now, he has my full
support. Mosely-Brown's nomination should be denied
and she needs to go before the full Senate to finally
answer the ethics charges and stop hiding behind the
president who nominated her.

ANDNOWTIME FOR YOUR
Y2K UPDATE. THINGS ARE MOVING
ALONG AS EXPECTED AND A FIERY
DEATH FOR ALL MANKIND IS IMMINENT!
NOW HERE'S STEPHEN WITH SPORTS
How old am I?
Na'im K. Akbar
Since I am the resident elder at ECU, one of the
most oft-repeated questions that 1 have to entertain is
that of my age. I enjoy a special kind of relationship
with my fellow students. I am a brother and confidant,
a friend, a mentor, an advisor, and to a great many I
am that parent away from home. It is an acknowledged
fact that I rarely give traditional answers to questions.
So, the answer to the question of my age can be found
in the events that occurred during the year of my birth,
which is Aug. 20, 19??
My first source of information is my mother, who
told me that I was born around noon. She remembers
going into labor at about 10 a.m. She sent my aunt for
the mid-wife, who assisted in my birth. I was born in
From the information I am about to supply, you
should be able to tell me my age, unless you are too
lazy to do a little research. I can understand that (smile).
The headline in the Tarboro daily newspaper was "Hugh
'Shot' Cox Signed As Coach at Tarboro High Sunsuits
were the fashion and personality pins were in style. A
brand new Dodge sedan cost $1, 675. Food was very
cheap by today's standard. Cabbage was three pounds
for 19 cents, evaporated milk 11 cents per can, sirloin
steak 73 cents per pound, stew beef 33 cents per pound,
dog food 19 cents for two cans and peaches were 17
cents for three pounds.
Entertainment was flourishing at this time with
movies such as, "Framed "Raiders of Red Rock" and
"Law of Canpon We were not without our disasters
of the time, there were reports of a tornado that caused
the death of 167 persons anp" injury to more than 1,300
in Texas and Oklahoma. A ship explosion killed 500
persons in Texas City, Texas; the city was annihilated
by the blast. And a severe hurricane swept in from the
gulf of Mexico, killing 100 people in Florida, Missis-
sippi and Louisiana, as an aftermath, floodwaters de-
stroyed crops and killed 60 people, sound familiar?
This is the year that Henry Ford and Bea Bernadet
died. Jackie Robinson was the first African American
to play in the major leagues. The first globe-circling
airline was inaugurated with a cost of $1,700 for an
around-the-world trip. The first supersonic aircraft was
piloted by Captain Charles "Chuck" Yeager.
In the political arena, the president was Harry S.
Truman and vice-president was Alben W. Barkley. Rob-
ert Gregg Cherry served as governor of North Caro-
lina. The state elected offidals from the Edgecombe
County area were, Benjamin E. Fountain, representa-
tive and Lawrence H. Fountain, state senator.
In the world of sports the New York Yankees were
World Series champions ("Go Yankees"), MVPs�Joe
Dimaggio�New York Yankees and Bob Elliot�Boston
Braves. In basketball the NCAA champion was Holy
Cross and the NBA champion was the Baltimore Bul-
lets. In football the college champion was Notre Dame
and the NFL champion was the Chicago Cardinals. Joe
Louis was the heavyweight champion, Jimmy Demaret
won the Masters, Mauri Rose won the Indy 500 and
Jack Kramer was the tennis champion.
And I will conclude with the cultural aspects of the
time: fashions for women were long skirts pinched at
the waist and flattened bosoms. Men wore full gabar-
dine coats and zoot suits. Hairstyles were the crew cut,
Argentina duck tail, and the greasy combed-back look
of Frank Sinatra for White men and the low-but (low
fade) style for African American men. Well, this con-
cludes my journey to the year of my birth. Now, you
will no longer have to ask me my age. I have just an-
swered that question.

Media gives youth poor role models
The proliferation of beauty, and notoriety as the
litmus test for the self-worth of a person has become
the scarlet letter of many. The news media is inundated
with images of young women obsessed with beauty and
students rampaging through school as an outcry against
The youth of America no longer look to their par-
ents for guidance but to media that is centered on com-
merce. Teletubbies, Pokemon and any number of fads
that enter an impressible child's mind can leave an in-
delible mark. The world of Sesame Street, and the dif-
ference between near and far, are left to the wayside
for the latest cartoon character with live action sounds,
and accessories sold separately of course.
The recent film "Fight Club" centered around the
belief that people have been misled to believe that ev-
eryone will be a movie star or model if only they wear
the right clothes. The movie's star Brad Pitt, the poster
boy of squared jaw features, charms hoards of women
by raising an eyebrow. The hypocritical nature of the
choice of a lead may find to the antithesis intended.
The tendency for society to become so jaded by
apathy shows in the minds of many of its members.
The average American can tell you who is who in "Hol-
lywood and even their latest love interest, but have
no idea who their senator is. The desires of a child no
longer center around making their parents proud, but
around making the papers. Famous men and women
are not beholden to the rules of law, when the presi-
dent can lie under oath and the degree to which sports
heroes are acquitted for their transgressions is directly
proportionate to their earned run average gained.
The death of a beloved football player will make
one stop and reflect on a stellar career more than the
shooting of a local boy by the police. Movies and me-
dia tells us that we are not pretty enough and require a
certain look, and then mention young children dying
and murders with the same complacent smile.
This columnist will not pretend to understand why
this happened, nor pretend to be able to find an an-
swer. The world is now centered on beauty and fads.
This may be an idealistic view of life, but one can still
achieve happiness and success by hard work. The world
has always followed the vogue of the times and this
will never change. However, when the child walks by
with a toy from the newest show, and a young girl pores
over beauty magazines, remember that beauty is more
than skin deep�it is based in hype, cultural direction
and the need to belong. Success it seems, means to be
happy with who and what you are.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Sachs must have basis for 'Morningwood' gripe
I am writing in response to Chris Sachs' article about
the "evils" at the so-called "Morningwood Apartments
I live at the aforementioned complex and consider it
to be my home.
Now, I will agree with you that it has its share of
problems. But you must consider that any apartment
complex inhabited mostly by college students is going
to be loud, as well as host a number of other negative
aspects. I do not, however, feel that this particular place
has any more problems in number or severity than any
other. I also feel the need to put in a good word for the
staff in the managing office. They may come across as
anal-retentive at times, but someone here has to be,
considering the fact that many of the inhabitants re-
side here solely thanks to the graces of their parents'
money and have no sense of responsibility to take care
of themselves or this place.
I think there is an unspoken rule that applies to
this situation that I would like to remind you of. You
have the right to complain about something that is
yours, like your mother for instance, but heaven-for-
bid someone outside the family says anything. I, hav-
ing been on a journalism staff myself, strongly believe
in being opinionated and being able to express that
opinion. But I think that opinion should be rooted in
something you are personally connected to, not just
based on some conversation you had with a couple
buddies during a gripe session.
I do not feel it takes talent to trash something you
know nothing about and to absentmindedly write with
the sole purpose of pushing people's buttons on issues
that are so personal. I have to say that Chris is creative
and I laughed when I read the article. I just think he
lacks tact and a certain amount of sensitivity that a
good writer should have.

Quick hangover fixes
Hangover (HANG-over) n. Unpleasant physi-
cal effects following the heavy use of alcohol.
May including nausea, vomiting, intense head-
ache, stomach pain and photophobia (sensitiv-
ity to light). Symptoms can be attributed to de-
hydration, low-blood sugar, irritation of the
stomach lining and poisoning of the organs by
the amount of alcohol they are trying to pro-
Some simple solutions:
�Drink plenty of water to replace lost fluids.
�Alcohol depletes the system of many nutrients,
particularly vitamins A, B, B-6 and C and miner-
als such as niacin, calcium, magnesium and po-
tassium. Take a multivitamin that includes min-
�To work the alcohol out of your system (actu-
ally to metabolize it), a little exercise is useful. It
increases your intake of oxygen, therefore
speeding up the process.
�"Bite the dog that bit ya" is an old cure that has
some basis in reality. The brain cells affected by
alcohol can return to normal quite suddenly. A
small amount of alcohol can ease your brain
back into awareness.
�An aromatherapy cocktail can quell the queasi-
ness. Mix 4 ounces of water, the juice of half of
a lemon and 1-2 drops of fennel essential oil;
drink before breakfast.
� Ayurvedic doctors recommend stirring 1 tea-
spoon of lime juice and a pinch of cumin into a
cup of fresh orange juice and drinking.
�Fresh juices are helpful in speeding the recov-
ery of a hangover. They flush the system of tox-
ins and rehydrate your body. Assuming you can
drag yourself to the kitchen, blend 8 ounces of
carrot juice, 1 ounce of beet juice, 4 ounces of
J celery juice and 12 to 1 ounce of parsley juice.
; Drink a glass in the morning and another later in
I the day to stimulate the liver.
I �A readily-available mixture called "E-mergen-C"

'�� tions to help relieve your hangover.

Use of color in environment affects mood, behavior color
� funerals. Brides li
Restaurants, sport teams benefit
from variations in hues
When you pick out your clothes in the morning do
you think of what effect the colors might have on other
people? Colors can say a lot about our personalities
and lifestyles, as well as the cultural beliefs that we as-
Colors are symbols. This meaning is often capital-
ized upon in society. For example, everyone knows
when they come to an intersection and see a red light
they must stop; if it were yellow, they would theoreti-
cally slow down.
In California, however, colors also determine where
you can park your car. A red curb means no parking,
yellow is a loading zone, green is parking for 10 min-
utes, white is for five minutes during business hours
and a blue curb means handicapped parking only.
According to Michael Hoane, a visiting assistant
professor of psychology, colors can even affect how a
team performs on the playing field. He said the foot-
ball coach of the University of Ohio was known for
painting the opponents locker room pink and the home
locker room red. Pink is a passive color that symbolizes
submissiveness, while red is a color of aggression and
"Visiting teams would even bring in colored paper
to put up over the locker rooms to change the pink
color so their team would be fired up Hoane said.
Hoane also said that restaurants use color tech-
niques. For example, McDonald's uses red and yellow
to signal speed and quick service. However, fancier res-
taurants use lower lights and calmer colors so that the
people will relax and stay longer.
Colors also have different meanings in various coun-
tries. In Western cultures, a bride wears white during
her wedding, while in Korea, people wear white to

Heritage Month bughjs
said Melissa Chavis, one of the co-presidents of
ECNAO. There are 40 students involved this year,
and at least 7 different tribes are represented.The
organization sends out letters to all students who
classify themselves as Native Americans, and also
meets twice a year to help increase student aware-
ness about the organization.
ECNAO sponsors several other events that
encourage students to take pride in their cultural
identity. "Get A Clue" is an event that promotes
cultural equality as well as education spanning a
variety of cultures other than one's own. The
event also features the Native American culture. A
can drive for needy families is one community
service project that ECNAO supports.
Another organization that encourages Native
American students to take pride in their culture is

population is Native American.
"Our organization is trying to make sure people
know that Native Americans haven't faded into
history Provost said.
There is also an annual powwow for ECU stu-
dents as well as community members who
choose to participate. This school year, the sev-
enth annual powwow is being held on March 25,
"It is a gathering of Native Americans, and it is an

A powwow is a traditional part of the Native

ECU are meant to celebrate Native American tra-

Everyone wants to know where they come
from. Provost said. "We have a lot of pride in

Non-Native American students also believe that

"Accomplishments of people from different cul-
tures should be recognized that contribute to the
nation said Jennifer Johnson, senior.
Native Americans were predecessors to Americans
of European descent and do not honor the time
when Spanish explorer Christopher Columbus
reachedthe New World.
"We of course do not celebrate Columbus
Day at all, because it was when the plagues

mated our culture and our people Provost
said. "It is important to show the other side

Breast augmentation has been
an issue of societal debate since it
began in the early '80s when im-

is now available through surgical
and non-surgical methods.
Breast enlargement is defined as
increasing the bust line through
surgery. The surgical method in-

Guide, published by St. Mark's Breast
Centre, scarring in the area where
the incision is made to insert the
implant is one risk associated with
breast augmentations. Though sili-
cone is rarely used anymore, per-
sons with the implants have had
concerns over them leaking. Im-
plants have been known to move
from their original position and are
then needed to be removed. Addi-
tional surgeries to correct compli-
cations are also a regular occurrence.
The cost of breast augmentation
continues to rise, due to the large
number of lawsuits associated with
this procedure. Depending on the
location of surgery, the type of im-
plants used and individual patient
factors, current costs range from
$3,450-$8,O0O (exclusive of anes-
thesia cost, surgical facilities and
other related expenses).

There are many campus organizations that are stu-
dent-run, but need advisement from someone with
specialized experience in the area. At TEC, which is
edited, written and produced by students, Paul Wright
has the interesting and challenging job of making sure
that everything runs smoothly everyday.
Wright earned both his bachelor of arts and his
master's in mass communication at Morehead Univer-
sity in Kentucky. Since that time, he has worked a vari-
ety of jobs In communications. The only area he has
not explored is television.
ECU is the fifth university he has taught at or ad-
vised in student publications. Since his graduation from
college, he has been at Morehead University, the Uni-
versity of Tennessee-Knoxville, Virginia Common-
wealth and Florida International in Miami, Fla.
"Communication has been something I have always
wanted to do Wright said. "I like radio because of the
way that you interact with the audience
According to Wright, in radio programs such as
"War of the Worlds the audience is captivated by the
scenarios that they create in their mind, the radio only
gives them the beginning of the picture.
In other types of media, the audience does not have
the same creative potential or opportunity.

The Boalt Hall International Human Rights Clinic
was started in January 1998 by two lecturers, Patty Blum
and Laurel Fletcher. The idea was to go beyond the tra-
ditional teaching tools of simulated cases.
"In a simulation class you can carefully control the
facts for a pedagogic purpose. In a clinic setting, the
pedagogic purpose is to learn how to be a lawyer by

One early case was that of Tibetan monk ligdol
Ngawang, who requested asylum last year on the
grounds he had been beaten, imprisoned and tortured
under Chinese rule.
Ngawang, who began studying to be a monk at age
12, began protesting for Tibetan rights at age 15, join-
ing other Buddhist monks and nuns who marched
outside of a temple in Tibet. Police descended and al-

For Wright, advising a student-

at a newspaper you start writing the
same story over and over again. The
characters and the scenery may
change, but it is the same story.
When working with a student news-
paper, you get trie same thrill of see-
ing your work in print, but without
all of the effort.

unusual staff that he had ever
worked with because of the mix of
people on staff. It was as likely that
an interview would be conducted in
Spanish as in English, and cultures
from all over South America and all
regions of the US were represented.
Although Wright's career has
offered him a variety of opportuni-
ties and obstacles, he still finds ev-
ery day exciting. Working with stu-
dents is interesting for Wright be-
cause there are constantly new
ideas, new problems and new issues

contract offer. The team said Tuesday it will try to

new contract proposal on July 17�a deal thought

Griffey the highest-paid player in baseball.

Griffey hit 48 homers this year after hitting 56 in

Sampras out at least 10 days
Pete Sampras injured his back and withdrew from
the Paris Open on Wednesday, all but ending his
chance to regain the No. 1 ranking before the end of
the year. Playing his first match since Aug. 20, when
he hurt his right hip during a match at Indianapo-
lis, Sampras beat Francisco Clavet 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7-4)
Sampras wouldn't speculate on how long the
back spasms will sideline him, although tournament
physician Per Bastholt said he would be out 10-15

one just before the U.S. Open.

Leaf suspended for four weeks
The short, troubled NFI. career of Ryan Leaf hit a
new low Tuesday when he was suspended for four
weeks without pay and fined a week's salary for what
teammates said was an obscenity-laced tirade at gen-
eral manager Bobby Beathard and other San Diego
! The Chargers wouldn't disclose the reason for the
disciplinary action against Leaf, who's coming off
shoulder surgery and was expected to be in playing
shape in three to four weeks. However, players and
others in the organization, speaking on condition
of anonymity, said Leaf yelled at Beathard and mem-
bers of the strength and conditioning staff, appar-
ently over a workout he was asked to do.
The blowup came before a team meeting Mon-
day, a day after San Diego's 34-0 loss at Kansas City.
Coach Mike Riley and some players witnessed part
of the exchange.
"We can't tolerate the undermining of discipline
that's set for this team Beathard said at a news con-
ference. "It's something that we' discussed, and to
the man felt that it was something we could not
avoid. It was an action we had to take Beathard

with a down-to-earth personality.

Doug Buffone, who was a veteran linebacker when
Payton joined the Chicago Bears in 1975. "It was no

A red-eyed Mike Ditka recalled Payton's diehard
work ethic as he spoke to reporters in New Orleans,

"The first thought I had was not of sadness, but of
all the great things he did for the city of Chicago, for
the Bears Ditka said. "He kept everybody loose,
that was one his rules

So how does a weekend
of free live music and enter-
tainment grab you?
The Greenville Arts and
Funfest is going on this
weekend in the Minges
Coliseum parking lot. The
festival will offer many dif-
ferent things to do and buy,
and the proceeds will go for
Hurricane Floyd recovery.
Sponsored by the De-

Leisure Studies here at
ECU and the University
Health Systems, the Funfest
will facilitate the making of
gift baskets for children and

"With the approach of
the holidays, we want to do
our part to assist parents in
bringing smiles to the eyes
of their children said Dr.
Jon McChesney, the director
of the festival as well as a
professor at ECU. "We
want to appeal to the
Greenville and surrounding
communities to help us help
An example of the chil-
dren who will benefit are
those from Patillo Middle
School. The children of this
school, located between
Princeville and Tarboro, will
not be able to return to their
school building for at least
two years. They are cur-
rently meeting in mobile
units with their only other
facilities being Port-a-Jons.
Of the hundreds of
booths featured at Funfest,
these children will have one
where they hope to collect
recreation equipment such
as balls, bats, gloves, jump
ropes, board games, and
other things that they might
be able to enjoy.
Private companies and
businesses, as well as mem-
bers of the community, will
have stands set up to sell
stained-glass art, pottery,
and hand-carved items.
ECU students are getting
involved as well. Some of
the fraternities and sororities
and other groups at ECU
will be setting up booths to
promote health awareness
and provide entertainment.
Pee-Dee the Pirate, the
Solid Gold Dancers and
ECU Cheerleaders will per-
form at the
festival. Members of the
Methodist Student Swing
Club will also be out there
doing a performance.
Students from the Recre-
ation and Leisure Studies
Department will be provid-
ing children's games, such as
putt-putt, a football toss and
a soccer kick contest.
There will be clowns, an in-
flatable Moon Bounce and
slides for the kids.
Students from the RCLS
department are also sponsor-
ing a wheelchair basketball
For the adults, there will
be a rock-climbing wall, a
golf simulator to see how far
you can hit a ball, a radar
pitch to see how hard you
can throw a ball and even an
adult Moon Bounce for
those who are kids at heart.

Master of wit Peter

In today's age of mind-
numbingly stupid comedy,
filled as it is with sex jokes
and fart noises, it's good to

video store and pick up a
classic slapstick comedy, like
the Peter Sellers film The
If you've ever seen the
Pink Panther movies, then
you know that Peter Sellers
has a very wide range of
characters, not the least of
which is a Hindu character
named Hrundi R. Bashki,
which he plays in The Party.
Sellers stars as a second-
rate actor who has an extra
roll in an action movie. Sell-
ers is in several scenes and
manages to mess up all of
them. He even screws up
scenes he isn't in. In one
scene the special effects

The producer calls the head
of the studio, who goes by

General doesn't know is that

party that he's hosting.
Once Hrundi arrives at
the party, he gets involved
in one comic screwup after
another. He loses his shoe in
an in-house pool, makes the
art deco bar rotate, breaking
everyone's glasses, floods an
upstairs toilet and has to exit
out a window that takes him
face first into the pool.
The funniest scene in
the movie is at dinner,
which features Steven
Franken as a waiter who's so
drunk that he ends up serv-
ing the salad with his hands.
In the background we see
the headwaiter strangle the
drunk on four different occa-
sions while the guests sure
obliviously at their dinners.
There is also a cute little
love story in this movie.
Hrundi uses his Hindu
charm on a young French

Patrick "all around great
I got a call from my edi-
tor at 5 p.m. Friday evening
informing me that I needed
to review a band. Super. I
had to pick out a band wor-
thy enough of my time to re-
view. 1 flipped open my
trusty Attic schedule book
and guess what happened?
Nothing really, I just saw
that Treading Evans was
playing and I said to myself,
"Hey you handsome stud,
this looks cool So I went.
Thank God I did. Upon
arrival I noticed the opening
band was playing to a full
back bar, only about a dozen
people on the front dance
floor. What a damn shame.
These guys were really solid
and had a heavy, almost
southern rock sound that
was a joy to listen to.
The band, Feel Love
Fury out of Wilmington, got
my attention earlier in the
day when they did an inter-
view on WZMB 91.3. The
literally had me clenching
my stomach in pain from
laughing so hard. I guess the
best way to describe their
sound is that it is full, with
heavy guitar and lead vocal
A song that really stood
out was "Don't off their new
self-tided album. I was kinda
miffed that more people
didn't see this show. I know
they would have enjoyed it.
For more on this great band
(they really are cool guys),
After a very very brief in-
terlude, the always entertain-
ing "Dog" (the bassist for
Treading Evans) came out
and the slighdy larger crowd
showed its appreciation. I
don't know what it is about
this guy, but he's just a natural-
onstage. Anyone who saw
him play with nameless? can
attest to that. In fact, his the-
atrics sometimes drew my at-
tention away from the band as
a whole, which can be taken
any way you want, I guess.
Aside from the "Dog"
show, the band was churning
out really solid music with a
heavy, melodic sound. They
use what 1 call "emotional"
hooks, kinda like how Pearl
Jam starts their songs slow
and then builds into an in-
credible crescendo, but with-
out the perfection that Pearl
Jam possesses. They pull off
the "emotional" wave profes-
sionally, without all the crap
that muddles music nowadays.
There are very few bands that
give me a feeling that they are
going to really amount to any-
thing in the long run, but this
band gave me that feeling.
