Duke U.�A little more than
two years after the Interfraternity
Council set up its remarkably strin-
gent and controversial anti-alcohol
distribution policy, the 17-frater-
nity governing body recently toned
down Its sanctions to make them
more enforceable and to ensure
they mesh with national organiza-
According to the new policy, a
fraternity's first violation will result
in a10-per-brother fine, as well as
a mandatory 10-hour community
service commitment from each
brother; a second violation will re-
quire a $20-per-brother fine and a
20-hour service commitment. If a
fraternity violates the policy three
times it will lose IFC, and therefore
university, recognition. Also, there
are no longer any IFC sanctions
against individual member's ac-
tions�instead, only whole frater-
nities can be penalized.
The new penalties are much less
severe than the ones put forth in
the 1997 version of IFC's alcohol
policy, in which a fraternity's first
violation resulted in a loss of its
spring pledge class and a second
violation meant a loss of IFC rec-
In the two years the old policy
was in effect, no fraternity was pun-
ished by IFC for open distribution
violations. Instead, any offenses
were dealt with by the university,
said Assistant Vice President for Stu-
dent Affairs Sue Wasiolek. She
added that the changes partially
stemmed from national fraternities'
dissatisfaction with the possibility
of chapters losing pledge classes.
Wasiolek said she did not see a
contradiction between the national
organizations' attentiveness to risk
management and their stance that
the 1997 sanctions were too harsh.
"(National organizations ex-
pect chapters to take the policy se-
riously but they don't feel that a
minor first violation should neces-
sarily preclude a fraternity from
continuing Wasiolek said.
"They're not saying the (loss of
pledge classes should not occur�
it just shouldn't be a standard pen-
Beyond these legal issues, many
fraternity presidents said another
catalyst for the change was the fact
that the especially harsh 1997
policy was virtually unenforceable.
"We didn't feel like anyone
would have the motivation to turn
anyone in under such a harsh pen-
alty said IFC President Ken
Collins, a Trinity senior. "It's hard
to make people feel that it is OK to
turn a fraternity in, that the good
they do for the community will
outweigh the social ramifications of
being 'the rat
Trinity senior Jason Barnhill,
president of Kappa Alpha Order,
said that although the 1997 policy
initially cut down on open distri-
bution, its effects did not last long.
"After the policy was in place a
little while, there was kind of a code,
of silence among fraternities, in
that fraternity member 'A' did not
always feel comfortable going forth
with information about a possible
infraction against another frater-
nity Barnhill said, "because his

the gun using frozen chickens in

Later, researchers developed a gela-

Today, the gelatin cylinder rep-

gas through the gun representing a

Instead of the recovery effort taking
place on the flood plain, it is taking
place on Capitol Hill. While students
have taken what they can from their
battered homes and set in motion the
wheels of recovery, they must wait.
Generosity is your best path to bliss
In a world full of material possessions driven by
the need to consume, it is sometimes difficult to stay
unselfish and giving. Greed and self-concern are very
low character traits to possess and cannot be part of a
balanced and healthy life. If you have never given
within the blossom of complete unselfish love, then
you will never reap the multiple rewards.
What is it about the act of giving that makes you
feel so good? When you give, you send out a piece of
your love in some way or another and that love will be
returned many times stronger. It is not always easy to
see how it comes back but sometimes it hits you years
down the road, and you smile and remember where it
Gifts are not restricted to material objects either.
Some of the best gifts I have ever received have been
the time and advice of a friend. Here is something to
try; next time you make eye contact with someone,
perhaps even in the class you are sitting in right now,
smile at them and watch them smile back. Watch the
love come bouncing back magnified.
Why do you need holidays to remind you to be
gWng and caring? Don't wait until Christmas to grve-
someone a present that you probably just bought out
of lack of anything better. Find out what they really
like. Take the time to know them more deeply and give
them something completely out of the blue and with-
out any strings attached. Then you can sit back and
bask in the rapture of watching them really enjoy your
You can extend this attitude of giving to other ar-
eas of your life as well, such as in your relationships
with other people. Being emotionally unselfish to the
people to whom you are really close to is an extremely
difficult giving task, but when you can truly be this
way with them it shall set you free. Don't allow jeal-
ously, fear of being hurt or your own personal emo-
tional neurosis to stand in the way of giving yourself
completely to the few people who are especially close
The world could work on the principles of greed
and want and selfishness and in fact it always will to a
greater or lesser extent. But to rise above, oh, to feel
the joy in the acts of thoughtful bestowment; this is
where the real rewards lie. Be kind and giving, until we

Alcoholism is real threat to students
Given the environment that col-
lege-age students create for them-
selves, I think it would be interest-
ing to see how many alcoholics de-
veloped their addiction while in
This is not singling out ECU spe-
cifically, but all colleges. Alcohol,
the breakfast of champions, is the
main ingredient in many students'
diets. Some plan out their week by
how many times they want to go
partying, and on how much beer
they can buy for $20 and have it last
the whole week (you can get a six
pack of Old Milwaukee for $2.89).
When you think about it, many col-
lege students' lives revolve around
the next beer.
As far as Greenville goes, I have
never seen a city which so thor-
oughly embraces the almighty alco-
Remember Hurricane Bonnie
last year? I mean holy jeepers,
Batman, people even put signs in
their front yard advertising them-
selves as getting drunk. I think the
"Greenville keeps sinking, we'll
keep drinking" sign was one of the
classier examples out there.
Heaven forbid you look from the
city to downtown. Downtown is a
city in itself, awash in bars and clubs
dedicated to the selling and con-
sumption of beer and liquor. This
ready-made environment for drink-
ing can be damaging to a person
who doesn't know their limits, or
their budget for that matter.
They could throw themselves
into the depths of addiction with-
out any ideas of what they are do-
ing until they find themselves wak-
ing up on a Monday morning and
getting drunk for Regis and Kathy
With all of this drinking going
on so early in a person's life, the al-
coholism rate must be tremendous.
I think it would be interesting to
trace all instances of alcohol-related
domestic violence offenses, DUIs
and disorderly conduct charges back
to when the offender was in college,
and then look at their drinking hab-
its back then.
I'm willing to bet the farm that
there is a direct correlation between
the offense and earlier drinking.
Make no mistake, I like to sit
back and have a beer with my
friends, and I like going to some of
the bars downtown, so don't think
I'm babbling about something I
know nothing about. I know what
my reasonable limits are and try my
best to stick within those limits.
What scares the living hell out
of me is when I see these people
drinking all day and all night, then
getting up the next morning and
doing it all over again.
Alcohol is a drug, and drugs are
addictive. I just hope we all make it
through this trip called college with-
out having every second of our
adult lives dependent upon alcohol.

AND IN NEWS, A NEW REPORT
SHOWS THAT MANY ECU STUDENTS
DRINK HEAVILY TO RELIEVE THE STRESS
OF SCHOOL LIFEWELL DUH!
It has been almost two months since Hurricane Floyd hit, when floods
paralyzed Greenville and the lives of ECU students.
While a number of students have found other housing, the routine of
classes and parties has taken many minds off the thoughts of condemned
houses and lost possessions. Unfortunately, those whose lives were touched
in an extreme manner by the hurricane still must deal with its aftermath.
Now, instead of the recovery effort taking place on the flood plain, it is
taking place on Capitol Hill. While students have taken what they can
from their battered homes and set in motion the wheels of recovery, they
FEMA has given students and other victims of the flood monetary help,
emergency housing and options in a time when not much is going their
The organization plans to buy damaged property, reimburse students
for their losses and help meet the needs of those hurt by Floyd.
While FEMA's actions will bring much-needed relief to eastern North
Carolina, the recovery process will take time.
The damage caused by Floyd will tax the'resources of every organiza-
tion geared to help victims. Despite its massive size, FEMA will be no dif-
ferent. With 78,000 people in North Carolina applying for monetary help
from FEMA, relief will come slowly.
However, for those in need, the relief can't come soon enough.
For victims in need, the aid will help rebuild their shattered lives. Al-
though the wait is unbearable, the amount of relief FEMA aid will bring
will be immeasurable. These funds and other relief measures will assist the
victims' long trek towards normalcy and help them to rebuild not only
their houses, but also their lives.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Freedom of speech can not be dictated by officials
I recently received a phone call from the coordina-
tor of Greene Hall, the residence hall in which I reside.
She asked me to report to her office so she could talk to
me. I was slightly alarmed, but knew that there was no
reason to be paranoid since I had not broken any rules.
I went down to her office not knowing what to ex-
pect. The coordinator asked me if I remembered stand-
ing outside talking to a group of friends on the previ-
ous Saturday night.
Yes, 1 remembered, but I still couldn't figure out
what the issue was. She then informed me that she
had been in her first floor office while I was outside,
and she had been listening to my conversation. She
said she had heard me speaking in a derogatory man-
ner regarding University regulations and policies. She
began to chastise me for the comments I had made.
I was outraged not only because she had been lis-
tening to a private conversation, but also because I was
being made to feel like a high school student who broke
a rule and as a result was called to the principals office.
The coordinator told me that she did not like my atti-
tude and she would not tolerate it.
I informed her that being a freshmen in college and
considered an adult, I had the right to say whatever
came to mind, especially in a private conversation. I'm
sure that everyone knows that this right is outlined in
the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution. She had
nothing to say to me after that.
I left her office in total astonishment at what had
taken place. I am disgusted with the whole situation,
and I stand firm that although students agree to follow
certain University rules and regulations, we never
agreed to surrender our right to freedom of speech.
Political .snobbery starts at university level
My heart bleeds for SGA Presi-
dent Cliff Webster.
After ail, he ran for office on the
premise that he wanted to serve the
university and its students. What a
shame that he didn't know about
the measly $400 per month he
would receive for the job. Now, as
he says, he must get another job to
make ends meet.
Never mind that $400 is nearly
a month's salary for many students
who are working too hard to even
think about extracurricular activi-
ties like SGA.
Never mind that the combined
annual pay of the SGA executive
council would pay for 15 or 20
scholarships to students who, oth-
erwise, might not even get to go to
Poor Cliff. Maybe he should
view SGA as a service�a service into
which he entered, even fought for,
voluntarily, but that would violate
his apparently mercenary attitude.
Or he could view holding the
position of SGA president as a pres-
tigious honor�an honor that will
reflect upon him when he comes
before prospective employers and
provide him with opportunities that
might not be available to those of
lesser stature, but that would not fill
his need for immediate gratifica-
tion. Or maybe Mr. Webster just
thinks that the biggest popularity
contest on campus (next to home-
coming court) should include a
healthier cash prize.
SGA is an extracurricular activ-
ity and a service. It is not either a
job or a career. It is a calling and
those who receive the calling should
be compensated, but not to the
point that it becomes a career. Mr.
Webster was not forced into it, and
he would certainly lead a fulfilling
and successful life without SGA.
He chose to serve his peers and,
in return, he thinks he should get
to be the world's first professional
student politician. And here, I
thought I had it tough because, even
with two jobs, I still had to scale my
classes back to part time and delay
my graduation by two years, just to
Senior, history major
If bats "buy" their friends, then we all do
I have wanted to write this ar-
ticle for a long time and I have never
gotten to it. It was not until recently
that a friend brought up the topic
that I have been at odds with for a
long time. The topic is fraternities
(and sororities) and whether they
are bad or good, why they get so
much flack all the time and if they
should go dry in 2000.
Now I knew very little about fra-
ternities�except for attending a few
parties and having a few friends in
them�and yet I always hear people
complaining and badmouthing
them. I never hear a positive thing
about them except from the frater-
nities themselves, and I finally felt
compelled to look into this when a
friend at a bar recently said (in a
drunken sentence fragment), "fra-
ternities guys are $A&!s
I asked my friend why, I mean
really, why do you think that is. He
was unable to give a logical answer.
So I asked others over the past few
weeks why they think the Greek
frats are bad, and for every person I
asked they could not give me a
sound reason why.
Now I know I usually complain
about everything, but 1 am also a
defender of justice, and I don't like
to see people unduly attacked for no
good reason. So I am here to defend
frats and the Greek system and hope
to dispel some myths. And just for
the record, I am not in a fraternity
so my opinion is biased free.
The first part I want to look at is
the oldest argument in the book:
"they are buying their friends
Where is the logic in that? I mean
really, a fraternity is technically a
club, a group of people with the
same ideals and goals, and to main-
tain that club you need revenue.
Let's say the club sounds like fun
and you want to be a member.
Now if you want to join that
club you need to pay your share of
the revenue needed to keep the club
going. Most of you have been do-
ing that since you were kids and will
continue to do so into your old age.
Prime examples are summer camp,
soccer, karate, Little League and pri-
vate schools while you were young.
Hundreds of thousands of adults
belong to the Rotary club, the Ma-
sons' Lodge, Shriners' Club, all cost
some kind of fee. Did they all join
those groups to buy their friends?
No, they joined because of common
Interests and because they're fun.
At last count there were over 115
clubs and organizations here at ECU
and most cost some kind of fee or
dues. So you're telling me that all
these people are buying their
friends? C'mon, give me a break.
The next item I hear about is
that frat guys and sorority girls are
jerks. I don't know about you, but
clubs don't change people nearly as
much as people think. If a nice guy
joins a frat he will most likely be a
nice frat guy. And if there is a frat
guy who is rude and offensive, well
he was probably that way before he
Fraternities don't make people
jerks; at most they exacerbate that
which was already there. When you
feel comfortable in a group, and you
have your friends around, you open
up as a person. You act crazy and
feel self-confident because you're
surround by people that like you.
They are not jerks; they are acting
the same way that we all do when
in a group of our best friends.
You're telling me that a guy on
the football team doesn't walk a bit
taller when his friends are all down-
town with him? Get real. Hey, Fred
and Barney belonged to the Water
Buffalo Lodge and they were never
This column will be continued
next week in a discussion about why

Mothers often tell their children that candy is bad for
them, and often, diet gurus and health magazines tout
the benefits of a life of nuts, grains and fresh fruits and
vegetables. When someone is craving sugary sweetness
though, health experts agree that it is not always best to
deny that sweet tooth.
"Anything that brings a pleasurable experience into
your life should be sought out, but in moderation said
Dr. Russ Federman, director of Health ServicesMental
If a person continually denies their self anything, then
he she is creating in his her body a more intense desire
for that thing. The tendency then is to binge, and there is
more harm in a binge on an entire carton of chocolate ice
cream than a couple of cones of Chocolate Fudge spaced
out over a couple of weeks. Eating candy can bring de-
light not only to your mouth, but also to your psyche.
' "Candy can serve as substance gratification! if you tan
not have a hug from your boyfriend or girlfriend you can
find some satisfaction in candy Federman said.
While candy tan bring both pleasure and gratification,
the sugar in the candy is a mine of calories if indulged in too
often. Anyone can enjoy candy, but many of the common
problems arise when people eat too much. In one level tea-
spoon of sugar, there are 16 calories and 4 grams of carbo-
hydrate. Sugar, corn syrup and artificial flavorings and
colorings can be found in most types of candy.
"Fat free candy is better than most, but the problem
comes not from the fat, but in the amount of calories con-
sumed said Heather Zophy, director of Health Education.
Calories and sugar do not really affect the soul when a
person bites into a delectable caramel apple sucker or a
Werther's Original, but after a while, those calories can be
seen adding up on tummies and thighs.
"From a nutritionist's standpoint, nothing is wrong with
eating candy said Dr. Laura MacArthur, assistant pro-
fessor. "People who are on diets can even use candy to curb
a sweet tooth instead eating of a whole piece of cake
When a person is forced to eat that whole cake (because
they have been in food denial), they are in danger of a calo-
rie overload. The amount of food or calories that a person
eats determines if they lose or gain weight, regardless of
where the calories come from. Empty calories from candy
and other sugary snacks are a hazard because they are not
filling nor are they full of the vitamins and minerals essen-
tial for good health. The other part of the equation for
weight loss, gain or maintenance is exercise and activity. One
must expend the same amount of calories that they consume
to maintain hisher weight.
The amount of food that the average American con-
sumes in a day can be determined by looking at what gro
eery stores sell in pounds of food.
According to Ask the Dietitian, the Site for Sound
Nutritional Advice, by Joanne Larsen, MD RD LD, "the
average American "eats" about 3,600 calories per person
per day and has not changed much from 1909 when it
was 3,500 calories per person per day. These calories come
from milk (14), meat (28), eggs and legumes (5),
grain products (26), fruits and vegetables (14) and
fats, sweets and beverages (13)
In 1909, people expended more calories a day, and
their diet consisted of about 57 percent carbohydrates
and 32 percent fats. The leisure activities have changed,
but fortunately, our eating habits are getting back on
track. In the 80s, the average American diet consisted of
43 percent fats and 46 percent carbohydrates.
A balanced diet, consisting of more carbohydrates
than fat and sugar is important, but self-denial is prob-
lematic. You may be able to resist the Oreos night after
night, but after too long, the whole pack of Oreos will be
empty and you will have eaten every single one.
The resounding message concerning the effects of
candy and sweets all seem to center on one word: mod-

Joyner grew up in Wilkesboro, NC. He received
his bachelor's and master's degrees at the University
of North Carolina at Greensboro. From there he went
on to Virginia Tech University where he obtained his
Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS) and
his EdD in Vocational Technical Education with con-
centrations in businessmarketing education and hu-
man resource management
Before coming to ECU, Joyner taught at many
other institutions such as the Wilkes County public
school, Wilkes Community College and as an adjunct
visiting professor at Virginia Tech. Joyner then joined
the staff and faculty of ECU, to which he has been a
part of for the last 10 years.
"Back in 1989, ECU was on the forefront in my
area and they had a reputation of keeping ahead on
what was going on in business education and I wanted
to be a part of it Joyner said.
This semester, Joyner teaches microcomputer ap-
plications and the second semester of computerized
accounting for the business vocational technology and
education (BVTE) department. He also works in the
teacher education program.

Pirates gear up for Cincinnati
Team hopes to stop
With a conference title now out of the picture, and
a titanic match up with archrival N.C. State looming,
it could be easy for the Pirates to overlook this Saturday's
game with last-place Cincinnati. However, coming off
of a loss last week to UAB, odds are they will not look
past the Bearcats.

Kenner, a junior out of Hopkinsville, Ky. is in his
first season as a full-time starter. Kenner takes over for
Chad Plummer, with whom he shared the job in 1998.
Kenner and the Bearcats feature a strong passing
attack. Their aerial game has drawn comparisons to the
offense of Tulane.
"The difference between the Tulane offense and the
Cincinnati offense is at quarterback said Head Coach
Steve Logan. "The joker in the deck will be Deontey
Kenner. Whereas the young man from Tulane was not

The East Carolinian
loses'Williams, freshman, plays a friendly game of basketball at the Student
Recreation Center with friend Michael Smith, freshman, (photo by Bobby Russell)
from page 10
Troy Aikman, Em mitt Smith, Mike
Irvin, Daryl Johnston aren't there.
That's a lot of weapons and with
those guys out, we are kind of shoot-
Irvin, Aikman and Smith were
consecutive first-round picks from
1988-90 who became the nucleus of
the team that won an unprec-
edented three Super Bowls in four
Since Smith arrived, at least two
of them have been on the field for
151 of Dallas' 1S2 regular-season
games. The only exception was a
meaningless finale in 1996 that
Aikman and Smith skipped to rest
for the playoffs.
No other combination of quar-
terback, receiver and running back
has remained together as long.
Irvin has been out for a month
with a neck injury that led to the
discovery of a genetic condition
that could force him to retire.
Aikman and Smith were injured
Monday night in a 27-17 loss to
A third-quarter sack left Aikman
with a concussion, his second head
injury in eight days and his sixth
concussion in 11 seasons. Aikman,
the National Football League's high-
est-paid player, had headaches most
of last week.
Smith broke the bone behind
the big knuckle on his right ring fin-
ger on a long second-quarter touch-
down run. His hand got stuck in the
mask of a player he was stiff-arm-
Galloway reports to camp
KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) Joey
Galloway says he finally decided to
end his season-long holdout and re-
turn to the Seattle Seahawks because
he missed playing in the NFL.
"I realized that playing football
is what I wanted to do the star
wide receiver said after reporting to
the Seahawks and passing his physi-
cal examination Tuesday.
He came to Seattle two weeks
ago to check out his house and see
some friends before returning to his
home in Dublin, Ohio.
"I had a chance to hang out with
some teammates and I got closer to
the situation Galloway said. "It
bothered me when I got on the
plane to go back to Ohio. It both-
ered me that I wasn't joining the
team, that I wasn't playing foot-
His holdout began when he
missed the start of training camp in
Cheney on Aug. 1. It cost him
$1,047 million: $837,117 in lost sal-
ary and $210,000 in fines. During
the holdout, the Seahawks took
their $35 million, seven-year con-
tract offer off the table, including a
$7 million signing bonus.
Without Galloway, new coach-
general manager Mike Holmgren
has the Seahawks off to a 6-2 start
and in first place in the AFC West.
They won at Green Bay on Monday'
Night Football and beat Cincinnati
at home last week.
The Seahawks will play Denver
in the Kingdome next Sunday
Galloway said he was ready to
start helping his team right away,
but wasn't sure when Holmgren
plans to start using him. On Mon-
day, Holmgren said it would be dif-
ficult for Galloway to begin playing
right away. Holmgren did not talk
to reporters on Tuesday.
Holmgren can choose to use a
two-week roster exemption for Gal-
When the player and coach met
Tuesday, Holmgren handed him a
thick playbook. Galloway took part
in Holmgren's minlcamps.
The Seahawks players had Tues-
day as their day off. They return to
practice on Wednesday.
"I'm going to give it everything
I have Galloway said. "I want to
play as soon as possible. The coach
will have to make a decision later
on in the week whether he thinks
I'm ready to play or not
In Galloway, the Seahawks are
getting back their best offensive
player. Galloway was Seattle's first
receiver picked in the first round of
an NFL draft. With blazing speed,
he gives new starting quarterback
Jon Kitna a deep threat to stretch
defenses, taking the pressure off vet-
eran running back Ricky Watters.
Galloway will play under the
terms of the final year of his five-
year contract for $1,585 million,
minus his fines and $93,235 for
each week missed. In order to be-
come a free agent in March, he
needed to be on the Seahawks' ros-
ter for the final six games of the
The Seahawks still can hold on
to Galloway by declaring him their
franchise player. It's unclear
whether Holmgren will try to retain
Galloway, although he said
throughout the holdout that he
wanted to keep him to help the
team this season.
Galloway was the clear loser in
his confrontation with Holmgren,
who arrived in Seattle from Green
Bay in January. But he handled a 10-
minute interview session the way he
handles some of the NFL
comerbacks who have to try to con-
tain him: smoothly and efficiently.
"I don't think it was hard at all,
but I was a little anxious coming in
today he admitted. "I don't look
at it from a money standpoint right
now. I want to move forward and
play football. I'm not going to sit
and say, 'Gee, I wish I had that
money. I wish I had played 4
He said his meeting with
Holmgren went well.
"I think both sides are going to
have some hard feelings Galloway
said. "But, hopefully, those hard
feelings are left outside. I know
Galloway said Seattle's best start
since 1984 played a pivotal role in
his decision to end his holdout.
"A lot of people say, Ts it tough:
to come back?' I reply, 'Why would,
it be tough to come back to a team,
that's 6 and 2 and playing the way
these guys are playing?' Hopefully
I can help out
Galloway said he hoped to be a
member of the Seahawks beyond
this season. He still hopes a new
contract can be worked out with the
"From the very beginning of,
this, I've wanted to sign a long-term,
deal in Seattle he said. "That's
been my goal the whole time.1
There's been a lot of reports that I
want to go back to Ohio. That is:
