Great American Smokeout held in November
American Cancer Society plays
role in nationwide event
Ashley Roberts
The Great American Smokeout is a nation-
wide event that takes place the first Thursday
of November every year.
"The Great American Smokeout was begun
by the American Gancer Society (ACS) in 1971
in Randolph, Massachusetts said Jane H a
Gancer Information Specialist for the ACS. "The
people were asked to give up cigarettes for a day
and to donate the money they would have
bought cigarettes with, to a high school schol-
arship fund
According to the ACS, the first national
Great American Smokeout was in 1977. It has
been promoted by celebrities such as Sammy
Davis Jr. and Natalie Cole.
A survey in 1998 was done by the Ephilson
Group Inc. on the awareness of the Great Ameri-
can Smokeout. Results were that 74 percent of
people surveyed had heard of this event, 19 per-
cent participated and six percent gave up ciga-
rettes for 24 hours.
"The American Cancer Society is helping us
with the Great American Smokeout by support-
ing us with lots of materials and handouts said
Dr. Betty Strab, associate dean of student devel-
opment and director of health promotions.
"They are a very important partner with us
for the Smokeout. They are also providing us
with a $10,000 grant for this process
According to the U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services, the main reasons that
people smoke include to relax, to deal with an-
ger, because they feel uncomfortable without a
cigarette in their hand, it gives them a lift and
it is part of an enjoyable, daily routine. Many
smokers have a physiological addition. Most
smokers have found that many of these reasons
apply to them.
"1 think many students smoke for weight
loss Strab.said. "They like the image of smok-
ing because it seems to be a connection to drink-
ing. Some students, when asked about their
smoking habits, responded that they only
smoke when they drink
"Smoking could cause people to not be in-
terested in dating you because you could smell
or taste bad said freshman Jessica Lassiter. "1
mean, who wants to kiss something that tastes
like an ash tray
"1 hear a lot of students say they light up
because they are feeling anxiety said David
Lollar, graduate student.
According to the ACS, the main effects of smok-
ing are cancer and heart disease. Smokers who have
diabetes can experience reduced circulation. To-
bacco accounts for one-third of cancer deaths in
the U.S today. There is specifically increased risk
in smokers in the areas of cervix, mouth, kidney
and bladder cancer.
"Smoking can cause bronchitis and infezema
on long-term smokers said William Pryor, chair-
man of the department of comparative medicine.
"Also, smoking is a cause
andor a promoter of lung cancer
Heart disease and stroke are two other effects
caused by smoking usually found in women. Last
year, 34,000 worfrn'died from heart disease and
8,000 died from stroke. Each of these 42,000
deaths can be attributed to smoking.
"I think teenagers today smoke because they
see that their friends are doing it said Pryor.
"They are also at an age when the adverse effects
of smoking have no effect on them. They think
their health will not be effected, which is not true
When asked how much students spend on ciga-
rettes, Strab said, "for the students who only smoke
when they are drinking, I would think that they

The United Way and ECU are
entering Phase II of their flood
relief plan, which includes dis-
tributing funds donated by ECU
families and surrounding com-
munities to those affected by the
According to Leslie Craigle,
director of Marketing, grant
money is available to assist stu-
dents who incurred substantial
flood damage during and after
Hurricane Floyd. In order to ap-
ply for this financial assistance,
one must complete a "Phase II
ECU Family Relief Fund-Student
Application" form and provide
documentation of their situa-
tion. Completed forms and docu-
mentation must be submitted to
the Office of Student Financial
Aid by Friday.
Workshops for students and
staff took place yesterday in the
Wright Place from 3-6 p.m. An-
other workshop will take place
today in the Pat Draughon
Room, 2nd Floor in the Ward
Sports Medicine Building from 3-
6 p.m.
According to Rose Mary
Stelma, director of Financial Aid,
ECU has $330,000 left from the
half million dollars donated.
"ECU has already distributed
$170,000 from the $100 cash
gifts given out at the Todd Relief
Center Stelma said.
Stelma said that when stu-
dents fill out their applications
and state their needs, United
Way will review each application
and decide the amount that
should be given.
"Amounts distributed will
range from $0 to $2,000 Stelma
"Students must bring their
social security number, current
address and phone number, the
address of their floodeddam-
aged residence, a copy of esti-
mates for home repairs or re-
placement of contents, a copy of
vehicle repairs, a copy of docu-
ment showing rent or monthly
mortgage amounts, a copy of
document showing amount of
insurance deductibles and copies
of or a list identifying assistance
already received such as insur-
ance claims paid, FEMA, Red
Cross, SBA Loan offeredac-
cepted, andor Phase I ECU fi-
nancial aid grant amount
Craigle said.
If you are unable to attend
workshops, applications for sup-
port from Phase II are now avail-
able in the Office of Financial Aid
in the Old Cafeteria Complex
and at the SGA Office in Men-
denhall Student Center.
"This grant will have no im-
pact on other financial aid al-
ready given to the student
Stelma said. "The need is based
solely on need and what the stu-
dent has lost. Basic questions are
on the form like 'did you own or
rent your home? Was your car or
possessions destroyed or dam-
aged? Have you gotten any other
assistance or applied for any?'
The answers given will help de-
termine the amount that will be
granted. I recommend that stu-
dents bring a letter of explana-
tion of their losses and difficul-
ties they have encountered or are
going through now
"We are suspecting about 100
students at the workshops
Stelma said. "We are not exactly
sure who still is in need, but these
workshops will help us tap into
those who still need help and
"These workshops will be
very helpful said Laura Sweet,

ing applications I have already

Web warns students
about melanoma
Angela Harne
Stephen and Gail Fine are
spreading the word about the
dangers and health risks of
melanoma, the deadly skin
The Fines' son died at age
26 last year, and they do not
want others to be at risk, but
rather to be aware.
Chancellor Eakin received
a letter from the Fines asking
ECU to spread the word about
the dangers and the growing
spread of melanoma.
A Web site, http:, has been
setup by the Fines to offer ad-
ditional information about
melanoma and its dangers.
The site focuses on early
detection of melanoma by
self-examination of the skin
while the disease is still thin
and curable. Here are some
facts on melanoma:
1. There is a fatal gap in
melanoma education. In a
1996 survey, the Center for
Disease Control found that 74
percent of individuals in the
18-24 age group had little or
no knowledge of melanoma.
2. Among the 25-29 age
group, melanoma is the most
prevalent cancer. The inci-
dence is increasing by nearly
four percent every year, faster
than any other type of can-
cer. An average of one in ev-
ery 75 students in any cam-
pus community will develop
melanoma during their lives.
3. Melanoma is the easi-
est of all cancers to spot at the
earliest stages by simple self-
examination, when it is al-
most guaranteed curable by
painless removal in a
dermatologist's office. Wait-
ing allows it to invade inter-
nally, transforming it into
one of the most malignant
and incurable of all cancers.
According to the Fines, in-
formation at their site is from
the American Academy of
Dermatology (ADD), Na-
tional Cancer Institute (NCI)
and other reliable sources.
Both AAD and NCI have
added links to the site.
"There is no request for
contributions and no adver-
tising at our site the Fines
said. "The Fund is a non-
profit service organization
and there is no hidden
"Our son would likely be
alive today if he had received
this kind of information
about the disease, which is
much more prevalent and se-
rious than most people real-
ize the Fines said. "Please be

cigarettes. For the heavier smokers,
I would probably say ten dollars or
more ,
"I probably spend around three
dollars a week on cigarettes said
Freshman Whitney Boone.
When Jane H. was asked if she
smoked, she said, "I am not allowed
to give out that information, but I
can say that 1 have never known
anyone of the ACS to smoke. Most
everyone that works at the Cancer
Information Center has had their
life touched by cancer one way or
According to the ACS, those of
you smoking "light" cigarettes who
think that you cannot be affected
by cancer, think again.
According to a fax from the ACS,
in reality, the difference in nicotine
content across cigarette types is not
significant. "Light" and regular ciga-
rettes offer similar amounts of nico-
tine to the smoker. Smokers who
switch to "light" cigarettes, may
simply smoke harder and longer on
the "light" cigarettes. They do this
in order to achieve the same impact
and level of nicotine they would
obtain from a regular cigarette.
According to 1997 data provided
by the ACS, there were no signifi-
cant differences in the nicotine con-
tent of full flavor, "light" or "ultra-
light" cigarettes. Whether a ciga-
rette is classified as full flavor,
"light" or "ultra-light it is likely
to contain similar amounts of nico-
tine. For the average smoker, a
"light" cigarette delivers moderate
to high doses of nicotine, sufficient
enough to cause and maintain
heavy dependence.
"As someone who smoked for a
number of years, the best thing I
ever did for my health was quit
Pepsi recycling program lessens wildlife hazards

Angela Harne
Despite some past com-
plaints, Pepsi is helping the the
Pepsi has been working with
ECU in recycling s'x-pack carri-
ers ever since the soft drink com-
pany became the main vendor a
year ago.
According to David Santa
Ana, stockroom manager of Stu-
dent Stores, ECU collects the ring
carriers and Pepsi does the rest
of the work.
"We don't have a vender that
accepts ring carriers Santa Ana
"So we collect them and
Pepsi takes them to their vendors
that recycle the packs. I really
support this program. Even
though we aren't really a part of
it, since Pepsi does all of the
work, It is still great plus it
helps the wildlife and environ-
ment. Ring carriers bring many
hazards to animals and the
world. Littering weakens the envi-
ronment, and it has been shown
that carriers have killed animals by
trapping them their wings, necks
or fins
This program was first imple-
mented in September 1997. The
North Carolina Vending Association
(NCVA) and the National Automatic
Merchandising Assn. (NAMA) began
the recycling program of six-pack
ring carriers.
"We are very proud to be offer-
ing this program said John Jack-
son, President of NCVA of Vermil-
lion Food Services in Kinston. "It
will have a positive effect on com-
munities in NC, while proving
NCVA's commitment to the envi-
The program plan was for par-
ticipants to collect and store the six-
pack rings that package cans of soft
drinks and water. Vending distribu-
tors will pick up the boxes of six-
pack rings and hold them until ITW
Hi-Cone returns them to its plant
in Itasca, 111 for recycling. The used
rings were to be recycled into new
rings, creating a closed-loop recy-
cling program.
"We are extremely excited to
bring this program that they can use
to increase their own company in-
volvement in offering our mem-
bers a program that they can use
to increase their own company

j Duke U.�After touting 1998-99 as a record
year for minority recruitment, Duke may not have
as much to brag about. Although the number of
early applicants has hit a new high at 1,367, mi-
nority students comprise only 15 percent of the
rjool�about a S percent drop from last year.
; Director of Undergraduate Admissions
Ghristoph Guttentag said the final numbers may
vary slightly, but it seems that the most notable
decrease came in the number of Latino applicants,
Which fell from S3 to 30. Last year, the admis-
sions office boasted the highest number of over-
all Latino applicants ever�a 10 percent jump
from the year before.
; Meanwhile, the numbers of Asian-American
aTid Native-American applicants slid from 137 to
111 and from 13 to seven, respectively. Only the
number of black applicants went up, from 44 to
' "In some sense, last year was an aberration,
certainly in terms of the number of Latino appli-
cants Guttentag said. "What we're seeing is
pretty typical to what we've seen in past years
Beyond that, he could not explain the drop in
the number of minority students applying for
early decision.
Guttentag said he doubts the Class of 2004 will
ultimately reflect the early decision pool.
"We've had very nice successes over the last
several years, both for minorities applying to and
matriculating at Duke Guttentag said. "The early
decision pool is always a lower percentage of stu-
dents of color than the regular decision process
I'm hesitant to draw any conclusions about
minority presence in the applicant pool from the
early decision group
But Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education
William Chafe said the decrease will require fur-
ther analysis. "It is a surprising and disturbing
drop, if it means anything over time Chafe said.
Trinity senior Rudy Spaulding, co-coordinator
of Mi Gente, speculated about possible reasons
for the lack of diversity in early decision pools.
"For the most part, I think only real die-hard
Duke fans, like people who have family members
who are Duke alumni or people with a real pas-
sion for Duke, are the only types of people who
apply early said Spaulding, who also works in
the admissions office. "And unfortunately, many
students of color do not fall into those catego-
Trinity senior Damani Sims, president of the
Black Student Alliance, said he thinks many mi-
nority applicants need to consider financial aid
when they decide where-and when-to apply.
" Duke University's tuition rate alone is
enough to give qualified prospective minority stu-
dents second thoughts about attending such an
institution he said. "The early .decision pro-
cess locks one into matriculation to a particular
school without receiving pertinent information
about financial aid, so prospective students
choose to wait and see what other schools will
offer them
Michigan State U.�Nine homemade bombs were
found outside of Philips Residence Hall at Michigan
State University last week. Three of the bombs ex-
ploded some time between Tuesday and Thursday but
did not injure anyone, MSU Police Detective Tony
Willis said.
Willis explained that the bombs were allegedly con-
structed with household chemicals in 20-ounce plas-
tic Gatorade bottles.
A Philips resident discovered the bombs in the
courtyard between Philips and the connecting Snyder
Residence Hall, and a staff member then informed
MSU Police of the explosives.
The police arrived at the scene early Wednesday
morning with the Michigan State Police bomb squad,
which operates out of Lansing. MSU Police evacuated
residents living in the basement and the first floor of
Philips whose rooms were adjacent to the courtyard.
Willis said police have no suspects, but he ex-
plained that MSU Police will first focus their investi-
gation on Philips residents and expand from there.
In addition to determining what chemicals were
used to make the bombs, police are attempting to iden-
tify a suspect by using fingerprints found on the
Any suspect found guilty of making the bombs
could be charged with a felony offense of possession
and creation of an explosive device, which carries a
minimum sentence of four years in prison.
Mohamad Pedram, who lives on the second floor
of Philips near the courtyard, said the bombs were
"pretty loud, like gunshots
Philips resident Ashley Dehr said the idea that the
bombs were placed in the courtyard, where many stu-
dents often play football, concerns her. "It doesn't
make us feel safe Dehr'said. "It makes us have to be
more careful a
Willis said yesterday's discovery is not connected
to any prior incidents at Philips.
"This is pretty much a random incident he said.
Willis said many reporters have been asking
whether the bombs were linked to the riots that oc-
curred in March when the MSU men's basketball team
lost to Duke University in the semifinals of the NCAA
men's basketball tournament. He said the incidents
are not related.
"Right now, it seems to be a college prank Willis

Supreme Court deliberates over school prayer at school games
WASHINGTON (AP) � The Supreme Court re-en-
tered the emotional debate over school prayer Mon-
day, agreeing to decide whether public schools can let
students lead group invocations at high school foot-
ball games.
A Galveston County, Texas, school board is asking
the justices to overturn a lower court ruling that said
student-led prayers over the public-address system at
football games violate the constitutionally required
separation of church and state.
"The school district is not causing prayer or endors-
ing prayer if it leaves to the student the choice of what
to say school district lawyer Lisa A. Brown said after
the nation's highest court granted review. "There's a
long tradition in many states of having this pre-game
ceremony of having a moment of reflection before the
game begins
But the Rev. Barry Lynn of Americans United for
Separation of Church and State contended such prayers
at officially sponsored school events violate the Con-
"The school's giving you the microphone; it will
sound like an officially sanctioned religious statement,
and that's what has no place at a high school football
game Lynn said.
The Supreme Court's decision, expected by late June,
could help clarify the jumbled state of the law surround-
ing school prayer.
The justices' last major school-prayer ruling, in
1992, barred clergy-led prayers at public school gradu-
ation ceremonies. "The Constitution forbids the state
to exact religious conformity from a student as the price
of attending her own high school graduation the
court said then.
The ruling was viewed by many as a strong reaffir-
mation of the highest court's 1962 decision banning
organized, officially sponsored prayers from public
But in 1993, the justices let stand a federal appeals
court ruling in a Texas case that allowed student-Ujd
prayers at graduations. That ruling, which also applii s
to Louisiana and Mississippi, conflicts with anothtr
federal appeals court decision barring student-leid
graduation prayers in nine Western states.
Monday's case comes from an area of the country
where some people joke that football is almost a rel i
Four students and their parents sued the Santa Fe
Independent School District in 1995, seeking to end
student-led prayers over the public-address system at
home football games in the Houston suburb.

Fear of death controls minds
J Christianity is the product of the fear of death. In

tion? We are all just trying to find out where we all
Religion works on the premise of belief and faith,
things that allow the pious to feel secure in the knowl-
edge of where they began and where they are heading
when the party is over. The best religions, however, are
the ones which allow a certain amount of flexibility in
thought and acknowledge the fact that there is no right
answer. These are mostly eastern beliefs since the hypo-
critical western ideal of worship leaves little room for
Science views death and says, "Hey, I'm gonna beat
you The constant drive in this brave new world to
perfect the human body and make it last forever makes
me sick. Stop worrying about how to make your life
longer and start worrying about how to make every
infinitesimally small moment you have in this para-
dise meaningful.
The biggest problem with science, and the reason
for its battle with immortality, is that it tells you that
when you die the chemicals in your body just stop
working and you simply decay back to the basic ele-
ments from which you were made. There is no notion
of afterlife because the afterlife cannot be measured.
This explanation, as a rule, does not make people fun-
damentally happier and thus people fear death.
In this universe, everything comes back onto itself.
It must do so in order to create an absolute balance.
There is no love without hate, there is no health with-
out illness and there is no life without death. Death is
the culmination of a life lived and should be embraced
as a part of the natural order of events.
Whether you belief in reincarnation, heaven and
hell or the universal mind fire, just know that you have
to believe and know that you cannot fear death. Hope,
love and passion are the only things which make this
life worthwhile so revel in their luminescence while
you can and do not fear, until we meet again.

Joyner Library still inadequate
Marvelle Sullivan
ECU possesses many attributes. We have a great rec-
reation facility, a fairly centralized campus and a con-
venient location. There is one thing, though, that is
severely inadequate�our library.
Admittedly, the remodeled Joyner Library is very
nice looking, but the outside appearance is not the prob-
lem. In the first place, most universities the size of ECU
. have more than one general library on campus.
While it is strange that one of the largest universi-
ties in the state has only one library (music and medi-
cal libraries aside), it is absolutely appalling that ECU'S
sole library is not open 24 hours a day. For example, it
is embarrassing that the library closes at 8 p.m. on Fri-
days. To be sure, there isn't a mad dash to the books on
Friday evening for most, but out of 18,000 students,
there is probably enough of a demand to keep the place
If you can get over the fact that hours are insane,
it's almost impossible to overcome the perils of com-
ing and leaving there. Of course, there are only about
eight metered parking places to fight over if you do
not live on campus. You could walk to and from the
library, but at night, the lighting is so bad around the
mall and the back area, that it really has the potential
to be quite dangerous. It's hard enough to motivate
yourself to actually go, but to have to worry about park-
ing and dangerous unlighted areas too? That's really
� asking too much.
i ' � As if the situation isn't bad enough, then there is
the actual quality of our library with which to con-
tend. Honestly, there is not an incredible amount of
books, reference material or anything relative to what
this university should have to offer. The library seems
huge and filled with books, but that's mainly because
it's laid out very poorly. Basically, it's an illusion�the
material is either scarce or non-existent.
Then, to add insult to injury, students are soon go-
ing to be required to pay for each page they print out.
Last time I checked, that should fall under "student
fees Here is an idea: Why doesn't the university take
the ridiculous Sonic Plaza�with the sounds, the wa-
terfall, the steam and the midnight jack-in-the-box�
and cash it in for some books and paper? You know,
the stuff that we are at this university for anyway.
I know that ECU isn't the academic center of the
country, but that doesn't mean that the one general
library that is here should have limited hours, limited
access and even more limited resources. There is no
excuse for it because the funds are definitely available,
or the Sonic Plaza wouldn't exist.
The library is a fundamental aspect of any univer-
sity. Joyner Library's inadequacy is a hard-and-fast in-
dicator of the general academic climate at this univer-
Improving the overall academic image of this school
is presently an administrative goal. To accomplish this,
upgrading the library by increasing hours, accesses and
resources is a step in the right direction in order to be
taken seriously in the future. The present condition
just serves to discourage students' frequent use of a place
that is designed to enhance the overall academic expe-

Hurricane Floyd affected everyone at ECU. The damage wreaked by
the storm and the flood that followed left many with tattered lives. Relief
for those affected is still needed by many members of the staff and stu-
dents. Monetary relief is available from many sources. While FEMA and
other agencies have been taxed severely by victims of Floyd, other means
of relief are willing to take on people that need help.
For relief, some in the ECU community can look to the university itself
i for help. The United Way and ECU have teamed up to form the ECU Fam-
ily Relief Fund.
Phase I of the relief fund was implemented at Todd Dining Hall earlier
this semester. Students were able to get immediate relief in the form of
money and books to replace those the flood ruined.
Phase II will cover the more serious losses people have had to face
since the water tore through the city. It will help people to get back on
their feet in a more permanent manner, helping to replace major facets of
life, like cars and homes.
The ECU Family Relief Fund was set up to aid those in the community
affected by the hurricane. ECU families and private citizens in the Greenville
area have donated over half a million dollars for the cause; $330,000 of
this is left. The money will be available to both students and staff mem-
bers who were hurt by the flood.
While a large share of the relief comes from the government and other
sources, the fund's money comes expressly from eastern NC.
Not many people in this region escaped Floyd's fury. If the storm did
not reach them, the floods did. For North Carolinians to give this kind of
money to others when they, themselves are still struggling to make ends
meet is not only generous, it is heroic.
It is commendable that the university and those affected by the flood
are able to turn around and give back to those who were worse off.
Not all student politicians out for money
money. If elected as SGA president (something I have
wanted to do for nearly two years), I would love to
serve my constituents taking the altruistic attitude that
I have.
I feel that politics is a field in which each person
has a different mentality toward his or her office. Mr.
Webster has a certain mentality�one with which some
ECU students disagree. I encourage ALL 18,200 of ECU'S
students to vote in the next election and then, maybe,
someone would be representing you with whom you
would not find fault.
Dear Editor,
I was quite disturbed to read the letter from Dustin
Bennett in the 111199 edition of TEC. I agree with
Mr. Bennett on points that SGA is "an extracurricular
activity and a service but I felt like he was implying
that many collegiate politicians take Mr. Webster's view
that the job of president does not yield enough pay.
I understand that $400 is nearly a month's sal-
ary for many students who are working too hard to
even think about extracurricular activities like SGA
Many members of the ECU community must work in
order to supplement their college education and I com-
mend these individuals, as this is a very difficult life to
lead. Again, however, I want the university to know
that not ALL campus leaders are only "in it" for the

Pokemon takes over American market

els. That yellow blob with the light-
ning bolt tail that screams random
Japanese words is supposed to be
there and the worst thing is, it
doesn't look like it's going anywhere
Pokemon, or "pocket monster
has been taking the country by storm
for the past year and a half. The idea
is that these little monsters are found
in egg form, then hatched and
trained to fight other Pokemon, all
the while mutating into super mon-
sters that are unbeatable. To chil-
dren, this entire concept appears to
be incredibly addictive. To me, it
seems like the most explosive and
ingenious idea in the past 20 years
The Japanese have continually
beaten the collective snot out of
America in the children entertain-
ment industry over the past 15 years.
Think about it. What have the Japa-
nese given us, toy-wise? Those little
keychain babies that die, Furbys, and
basically every video game system on
the market all come to mind. And
what do we have to combat these
imported wonders? Can you say
Milton Bradley?
Indeed, the Japanese have a "Mo-
nopoly" over our "Sorry" children's
entertainment, and it "Boggles" the
mind why we never want to take a
"Risk" and make something worth
the "Toys backward R Us" shelves,

First came the Gameboy game,
which is its top selling game of all
time after just over a year of release.
The game actually does some good
things according to some studies. It
teaches kids good decision making
skills and hand-eye coordination.
And instead of killing your oppos-
ing monster, you merely stun them.
It's like violence with just one calo-
On the other hand, those guys
overseas are not all into teaching our
kids right from wrong. Not when it's
their pockets that are desperately in
need ot precious, precious yen. They
introduced the game in two differ-
ent versions, red and blue (with an-
other coming soon). The only differ-
ence between the two games is that
they have different monsters to fight,
but the layout of the game and char-
acters remain the same. So instead
of buying one game for little Timmy,
we have to buy them the same game
twice. Genius.
Next comes the card game. Oh
God, the card game. I worked at a
summer camp last year and let me
tell you something. Kids would
rather resort to capital punishment
than have their Pokemon cards
taken away. The idea of the game is
based on all the other trendy "Magic-
ish" card games out there where you
are pitted against an opponent with
a deck of cards with random mon-
sters on it. If your card is stronger,
then you win their cards. This
teaches children a good lesson in
gambling, I think. But then again,
who cares when you can just get
your parents to buy more at the dime
There's also marketing galore
that crosses over to just about every
facet of our daily life, acter doing
nondescript Pokemon things. All of
this in conjunction with the daily
cartoon show and the movie that
brought in more than $30 million
last weekend alone�classifies a phe-
nomenon in my book. My best ad-
vice: move to Singapore. They'd cane

Bad people make good seem even better
Christie Marra
I believe that a vast majority of
people in the world fall under two cat-
egories�the good and the bad. It
seems that for each good person we
meet there are always at least two bad
ones. I'm not sure why this is.
Maybe it's someone's way of mak-
ing us keep our feet on the ground
and not be too trusting of others, like
a defense mechanism of sorts. Per-
haps, it's just that there are so few of
the good ones around anymore.
I guess that all of those bad people
make you realize how truly lucky you
are to know some genuinely nice
people�for Instance, when you wait
on those people in a restaurant cheap
enough to leave $1 tip on a $30 meal.
Yes, those people really do exist and
some of them are probably reading
this right now.
You see, that table makes you ap-
preciate those that leave you $10 af-
ter their $30 meal even more. No, I'm
not going to complain about cheap
people or lousy tippers; instead I'm
going to thank the numerous bad,
cheap, mean, rude, demeaning dregs
of society.
First, I'd like to thank the noisy
people who live downstairs from me.
I appreciate the way you blare what
you call music when I have a big
Spanish four exam the next morning.
Also, I really love those nights when
you make it your mission to not let
me get a restful, undisturbed night of
sleep. If it was not for you guys, I
wouldn't be half as grateful as I am
for the quiet next-door neighbors.
You have made me aware of the fact
that one can actually function on two
hours of sleep.
I am indebted to the rude cash-
iers at a major discount store chain (I
won't name any names but it's the
one with the grocery store). On days
when I have no choice I have to go
in and wait two years in line only to
have someone feel it's part of their
job to act as though helping any cus-
tomer is far worse than sliding down
razor blades into a pool of iodine. If
it were not for your "friendly" per-
sonalities any past, pleasant shopping
experiences anywhere wouldn't have
been quite as pleasurable
An even bigger note of thanks for
what you did on those days when 1

would have seen nuclear annihilation
as the perfect ending to a less than
perfect day.
A much overdue note of recogni-
tion goes to any rude professor or
teacher I have had through my never-
ending education. All of you make
weekends and holidays some of the
greatest times on earth. For your un-
forgiving attendance policies, and the
fact that you dropped my grade a let-
ter because I was on my deathbed�
thanks. Also, the way you embar-
rassed me in front of the class when I
got the answer wrong made me thor-
oughly enjoy your class and teach-
ing style. It's teachers like you who
make me truly adore those who are
flexible and will cut me just a little
Someone once said, "Little friends
may prove great friends That per-
son was so right in their thinking. I
imagine he knew a few genuinely
caring people with no ulterior mo-
tives. Any of you mentioned have
affected a part of my life more than
you realize. To those I forgot, I'm sure
there's someone out there who would .
like to thank you for something.

but what she does with that free time is changing Pitt
Choo is a straight A, pre-med honor student at ECU.
Despite all of the homework and studying required for
her major, as well as running her own business, Choo
still finds time to do what she loves�volunteering.
Choo spends most of her afternoons sharing her
time, knowledge and heart with the students of South

Her first days as a volunteer tutor were not easy.
Many of the students had never met an Asian-Ameri-
can. The children asked why she looked different and
spoke with a strange accent. Nicknames followed one
after another, but Choo was determined. She patiently
answered the students' questions and worked to en-
lighten them on the rich ethnic and racial diversity in
the US today.

Latin rhythms, Spanish

America is considered a melting pot for different cultures.
As Americans, we are the product of the customs and tradi-
tions we have been exposed to over the years. The Hispanic
heritage is one culture a number of individuals call their own,
and it is captivating many Americans through the mediums of
media, authentic cuisine, culture and language.
Over the years, more people from Hispanic descent have
been coming to the States, bringing with them the "flavor" of
their respective countries. Americans can find a restaurant and
dine on authentic Spanish cuisine easily, or turn on the radio
and hear traditionally Latin beats from artists who, at many
times, are not Hispanic.
According to Dr. Dale Knickerbocker, an associate Span-
ish professor, Latin sounds have been present in some of the
music we have been listening to for many years.
"Many years ago, Anglo musicians incorporated Spanish
rhythms into their own music, allowing the Latins to come
forth with their music Knickerbocker said.
Since we have already had a taste of these rhythms, it's not
so far-fetched to love the sounds that are being produced by
today's popular Hispanic artists such as Big Punisher, Jennifer
Lopez, Marc Anthony, Selena, Fat Joe and Enrique lglesias.
ECU graduate Jeff Hill speaks Spanish fluently with amigo Raul Morales, (photo by Robin Vuchnich)
Although these artists have their own individual music style, each
has successfully incorporated the sounds of their heritage into their
A number of consumer products are equipped with instruc-
tions and warnings to accommodate both English and Spanish
speakers, while businesses announce their bilingualism with signs
stating "se habla espanol" (we speak Spanish).
According to Knickerbocker, more businesses will hire bilin-
gual employees in order to attract more Hispanic clientele.
One prime example of the need for a bigger Spanish-speaking
work force occurred during Hurricane Floyd.
"A lot of the staff and faculty spent time during the flood with
the American Red Cross as interpreters Knickerbocker said.
Students are making an effort to learn more about the lan-
guage and the culture. According to senior Quintin Gillus, the
Spanish language is so smooth it captivated him, making him want
to learn more about it. He found it to be a very relaxed culture.
"The Spanish culture Is accepting and open to people from
other cultures Gilfus said. "And once you learn the language you
can use it right away because of the growing population here
Here in Greenville, the Hispanic population has grown over
the years. According to Knickerbocker, there has been a surge in

Custis believes
that the change
in population

cause of the
growing num-

who have made a permanent home here.
"When I first moved to Greenville, I would sec a seasonal
influx in the Hispanic population, but now I sec more resi-

With this increase of Hispanics right here in the area, there
are many advantages to being bilingual.

Research team measures flood's
psychological effects on students
NDSU team's findings
assists victims
Nina M. Dry
Although almost a month has
gone by since Hurricane Floyd bull-
dozed through Greenville, the ef-
fects of the storm are still being felt
by many people in North Carolina.
With all the trauma that has oc-
curred lately, many people from all
over the country have been doing
what they can to assist North Caro-
lina residents. Recently, a hurricane
research team from North Dakota
State University visited ECU to of-
fer testing and treatment in post-
disaster adjustment.
Clinical psychologist and North
Dakota State University psychology
professor, Dr. Kit O'Neill, headed the
research with the assistance of two
second-year graduate students.
Their interest in this particular type
of research came from dealing with
a situation like the flood damage
caused by Floyd.
"North Dakota had a major
flood in 1997 said O'Neill. "When
we heard about Floyd, we were in-
terested In helping here
According to O'Neill, they took
the knowledge gained from the '97
flood and created this test a year
ago. Their research was funded by
the Natural Hazard Institute Quick
Response Program. The destruction
caused by Floyd posed an opportu-

nity to put this testing treatment to
good use.
"The group initiated the con-
tact said ECU psychology profes-
sor and collaborator Dr. Susan
McCammon. "Once they heard
about the flood, they wanted to
During this testing, the group
was looking for factors related to
post-disaster adjustments. One part
of the testing included collecting in-
formation from people.
"We provided them with activi-
ties designed to assist them with
recovery from the flood O'Neill
For example, the team had the
participants fill out questionnaires
and write about flood related expe-
riences and how they are recover-
"This has been beneficial for
people who are recovering from di-
sasters O'Neill said.
Another part of the testing dealt
with saliva samples that were taken.
According to O'Neill, this is done
in order to measure the amount of
cortisol, a stress-related hormone,
that is in a person's system.
Along with the research- team
and McCammon, ECU psychology
graduate student Crystal L.
Williamson has been assisting with
the testing.
"I gained a lot of experience with
these experiments Williamson
said. "It gave people the chance to
communicate their experiences

their testing and will do follow-ups

Junior high is often a dif-
ficult time in a person's life,
and according to many who
have experienced it, life
wasn't fair, parents didn't
understand and peer pressure
was everywhere you turned.
According to Mary Pipher,
author of "Reviving Ophelia:
Saving the Selves of Adoles-
cent Girls young women
may have it much worse.
Young women's difficul-
ties with developing their
values, and this leads to more
problems in the future. Instead of getting their values -
from parents and elders, they get them from magazines
and peers that tell them how to dress, how much to
weigh, how to talk and tell them to be sexually active
at an early age.
Pipher reports around five case studies per topic,
naming them after the girl's first name and age. Her
topics range from drug and alcohol abuse to rape; from; ;
divorce to clothing choices and from depression to eat: � ;
ing disorders. All of these things contribute to what
she calls "girl poisoning the Idea that the environ-1
ment and society turn young women into overdepen �
dent and self-absorbed adults.
The most interesting thing about the book is the � �
fact that Pipher brings her own experiences from her �
youth into the studies, so the reader really gets an idea;
of how things have changed. Also, she includes stories'
about her own daughter to show that even experts lit; '

This book is strongly recommended for anyone with
young girls in their family. It's an eye-opening epiphany
of the terrors of growing up female in the teenage years.
The only problem with the book is that it repeats itself
in its metaphors a little too often, so it can feel like
you're reading the same chapter over again and again.
If you can get past that one flaw, however, "Reviv-

shocking details of the hardships faced by women will

"After the Storm In the aftermath of Hurricane Floyd,

The play begins with a woman who is raising three
children of her own who has just experienced the death
of her mother. Her troubles multiply as she moves from
place to place and from job to job. Eventually, her baby
girl dies. But no matter what she loses, her faith in God
stays strong.
"It was really an uplifting play because it clearly

An exclamation point was placed on the two big

on Sunday when Tony Stewart won his third race of
the year and Dale Jarrett won it all.
After several near misses for himself and car
owner Robert Yates, Jarrett put the finishing
touches on his first Winston Cup championship with
a fifth-place finish in the inaugural Pennzoil 400 at
Homestead-Miami Speedway.

Now he's the Greatest Dayne. Ron Dayne broke
the major-college career rushing record Saturday
on a 31-yard run with 4:32 left in the second quarter
of No. 9 Wisconsin's 41-3 win over Iowa.
The run gave Dayne 6,288 rushing yards in his
career, breaking the record of 6,279 set just last
year by Texas' Ricky Williams. Dayne finished the
day with 216 yards in the game and 6,397 for his
career as the Badgers clinched their second
straight Rose Bowl berth.

Before the 1999 sea-

Steve Logan stressed
one thing to his team:
not losing two games in
a row.
Following the
team's first loss to
Southern Miss, the Pi-
rates whipped Tulane
52-7. With the team's
loss to UAB last week,
Logan saw the need to
respond with a victory
over Cincinnati.

into Greenville with the nation's strongest punt de-
fense. On the Bearcats first punt, ECU's Keith Stokes
took it back 94 yards for the opening score.
The Bearcats came in having allowed only three
sacks all season. By game's end, the Bearcats' quarter-
backs had been sacked three more times and hit on
almost every play.
"I thought we played with a lot of heart today
said quarterback David Garrard. "It was just a great
showing by our offense
The win gave the Pirates eight wins on the season.

The win combined with

assured the Pirates of a top

bowl bid.
"Getting to a bowl

school you're at, is just big-
ger than big Logan said.
"It's a goal for every pro-
gram, that starts out every
August. Everybody's talking
about going to a bowl
The Pirates opened up a
31-9 lead at halftime. The
offensive outburst began
following the game's open-
ing drive, when the Pirates
forced the Bearcats to punt.
Stokes received the punt
inside the ECU 10-yard line.
He hit a seam in the Bearcat
punt coverage, faked out
the punter and easily
"Once I caught the ball,
my blockers did a real good
job Stokes said. "There was a big hole in the middle,
and it was me and the kicker, and I knew the kicker
wasn't going to tackle me
Coming into the game, the Bearcats had only al-
lowed 19 yards on punt returns all year.
"Our punt return team took that real personal, to
come out there with a big challenge, and we came up
to the challenge today real well Stokes said.
Stokes broke Tommy Bullock's single game punt-
return yardage record, gaining 148 return yards.

The game within the game
Stephen Schramm
Football is a game dictated by physical strength
and detailed strategy. Fans see passes and blocks, cut-
backs and tackles; but what most fans don't realize is
that there Is an underlying mental aspect to the game.
During the course of a game, players try to throw
opponents off their game any way they can.
Whether it be with a late hit or a celebration after
a crushing tackle, players will try to gain any advan-
tage they can. Both methods are illegal in college
football and will be greeted with a flag. However,
there is one thing that players can do on the field to
get into another player's mind that does not warrant
a penalty and can go unnoticed by coaches and offi-
cials; trash talk.
"It can get you hyped. It can get the crowd going
because the other team's frustrated said running
back Jamie Wilson.
Trash talk has been around as long as football.
Whether coaches like it or not, almost every team
does It. ECU is no different.
"Sometimes, I've got to say what I've got to say
said linebacker Pernell Griffin. "Ifs just part of the

"I talk only if the guy says something first said
flanker, LaMont Chappell. "If they think their good
or say something conceded in the paper, then I may
go out there and start talking, to see if I can get them
out of their game a little bit
For players at certain positions, such as running
"I get hit on every play, so I'll tell them to 'bring
it or talk about their mama every once in a while.
Nothing really dirty, but I like to keep stuff going
Wilson said.
Some teams talk worse than others.
"Houston, they were pretty bad Wilson said.
"They talk a lot of junk. Their (defensive backs) were
kind of small so they had to do something to try
and get our mind off the game. Southern Miss, they
talked a lot of junk since they beat us. They were
like, Thanks for the Liberty Bowl tickets
While the Pirates claim not to be too big on talk-
ing junk, certain members of the team can jaw with
"Rashon Burns, he talks trash to everybody, he's
always out there trying to get something started
Wilson said.
Bums tries to keep his oratory confined to the
practice field.
"I really do talk a lot in practice, because what
happens in that is that, you get your defensive guys
that prepare you for the game each week, you get
them fired up and they want to show you up. It
makes you play harder and, in actuality, it makes
me a better player'Bums said.
Burns does not claim to be among the best talk-
ers in games.
"Game wise, I try to keep it toned Bums said.

Return man key
to season's success
Stephen Schramm
As an offensive coordinator in 1990, Steve,(,ogan
begged then Head Coach Bill Lewis for a return
man�a player whose only job was returning kicks.
Lewis obliged and gave Logan a scholarship. Logan
then found his man in junior college transfer Dion
Johnson had a productive career in the purple and
gold as a return man and a wide receiver.
Last year, Logan found himself in the same situa-
tion, scouring the junior college ranks for a quick fix
to a kick return game that lacked punch.
"We got Dion Johnson in 1990 and he impacted
our program, and I was trying to recreate the magic,
again with the same attitude
Since Johnson, few junior college transfers have
played for the Pirates.
"We've really divorced ourselves from junior col-
lege recruiting over the last five or six years Logan
said. "We've done really zero
Just like he did in 1990, Logan found his man.
This time it was Georgia Military College's Keith
Stokes. Stokes, from Dothan, Ala. ran back six punts
for touchdowns last season. �

The Pirates kept the Bearcats out of the end zone in
the first quarter, holding the Bearcats to one Joe Judge
field goal.
The Pirates got touchdown receptions from tight
ends Rashon Burns and Corey Floyd and an eight yards
Jamie Wilson touchdown run.
Cincinnati finally broke into the end zone with a

The Pirates had trouble in their past two games run-

rushed for 76 yards on the ground. Against Cincinnati,
the Pirates racked up 244 yards on 45 carries.
Junior Leonard Henry got the start at the running
back slot for ECU. Henry started ahead of fellow junior

he just got his opportunity and took advantage of it
Henry was the Pirates' leading rusher on the day,
gaining 95 yards on 16 carries.

playing his second and third units, when the Bearcats

on a touchdown pass from David Bertucci to make It
Mays scored the two point conversion to cut the
East Carolina lead to 14 with under a minute to go.

Bearcats drove inside the Pirates' 40. The game finally
ended on a Carlos Reyes interception as time expired.

Romantic comedy set in London in the late 16th century:
Young playwright William Shakespeare struggles with
his latest work "Romeo and Ethel the Pirate's
Daughter A great fan of Shakespeare's plays is young,
wealthy Viola who is about to be married to the cold-
hearted Lord Wessex, but constantly dreams of
becoming an actress. Women were not allowed to act
on stage at that time (female roles were played by men,
too), but dressed up as a boy, Viola successfully
auditions for the part of Romeo. Soon she and William
are caught in a forbidden romance that provides rich
inspiration for his play.
South Park is a quiet and peaceful place until the latest
Terrance and Philip movie comes out. Once all the kids
see it, all hell breaks loose, as the parents try to find a
way to stop their kids from saying all the naughty
words coming out of their mouths. The parents blame
Terrance and Philip, place them under Citizen's Arrest,
and declare ware on their home country, Canada. It is up
to the kids to save the world from Satan and keep
Terrance and Philip from being executed.

I set out for my friend's
house Friday night to check
and see what they had heard
of. I couldn't get into the
parking lot without being
surrounded by people. Over-
whelmed by the immense
crowd, I had to see where all
these people were coming
It took me 10 minutes to
reach the apartment of the
eventual winner. There had
to be at least 200 people
there! I looked all around
for the guys throwing the
party, but to my sheer
amazement and joy it was a
group of girls that had the
cajones to break some laws
conducting this party.
It was wild and out of
hand, just the way I like it.
They really took their apart-
ment complex to a new
level. The proud hosts of
the party and winners of our

"Scary house" thriller insipid at best
Twitching bad guy
Kenny Smith
Staff Writer
Since the beginning of
cinema, bad horror films
have outnumbered the
good ones 20:1. Some of
those movies are awfully
funny and become cult
classics (the Evil Dead se-
ries comes to mind), but
most are just poor pieces
of work haunted by weak
premises, bad acting and
even worse scripts.
House on Haunted Hill is
a re-make of a 1950s
Vincent Price movie,
which means it's like a

regular bad horror movie
done up with new hip actors
and neat special effects. But
at least this movie doesn't
start to putrefy until the last
Geoffrey Rush plays
Steven Price, the owner of
an amusement park and de-
signer of rides that does a
wonderful job of scaring the
hell out of people. His wife,
Famke Janseen, has an idea
for throwing a Halloween
party in a building that was
once a sanitarium. Rush and
Janseen have an interesting
relationship: he's a sick
piece of crap and she mar-
ried him for the money, so
you can imagine the rest.
The guest list consists of
five people who need
money, and the premise of

Diggs, former baseball
player; Ali Larter, a secretary
and Bridgette Wilson, a .

cept their invitations. Chris
Kattan, the owner of the
house, is added to the list.
Through the early stages
of the movie, Rush thinks
that he is in control of things
happening in the house,
which has a curious mind of
its own. Kattan repeatedly
tells the guests, "It's the
house, were all gonna die
And he's right to a point.
The thing about this
house is that the doctor who
ran the sanitarium is a real

fun to torture his patients.

Help art students and
yourself by supporting
the Ceramics Guild
Maura Buck
Staff Writer
ECU is known regionally
and nationally for its strong
fine arts program. The Ce-
ramics Guild is one division
of the program that includes
students from the fine arts
department who aspire to
careers as ceramic artists.
The purpose of this non-
profit organization is to bring
together groups of students
that foster the same occupa-
tional aspirations and intro-
duce them to a number of
at last week's Ceramics Guild
unique experiences.
This year, for example,
some of the students will be
attending a national confer-
ence on ceramics in Colo-
rado. The guild also spon-
sored a ceramics convention
earlier this semester.
The group is committed
to continually furthering the
knowledge of its exclusive
trade by bringing in the
world's most renowned and
well-respected artists, to col-
lecting and sending funds to"
a small number of students
and holding national confer-
ences around the country.
To fund such beneficial '
experiences, the association
participates in a number of
sales every year, in-
cluding a Christmas
sale which will be held
this year Dec. 2-4 in
the first and second
floor lobby of the
Jenkins Building.
Although the Ce-
ramics Guild will be
attending, representa-
tives from the other
schools within the fine
arts program will be
selling items varying
-aj from ceramics and
rings to silk scarves
and wooden cutting
boards, with prices
ranging from $10-$100.
"The strongest
quality of the organiza-
tion is getting in visit-
ing artists said
Meleya Rhodes, presi-
dent of the Ceramics
Guild and a ceramics
major. "It introduces
us to fine arts around
the world
Last year alone, the guild
brought in artists from Ja-
pan, Norway and Australia
as well as various cities
within the US.
This enables students to
make a number of contacts
and enjoy new ideas along
with a wealth of creativity
from all over the world. Un-
doubtedly, the entire point
of the organization is to
strive to better each member
by offering once-in-a-lifc-
time educational opportuni-
ties that will forever influ-
ence the individual's life and
One way to aid the stu-
dents involved is by visiting
the sales they hold and pur-
chasing goods they create.
Quality pieces provide buy-
ers a chance to benefit while
helping fellow students go
places to improve their
knowledge of the trade.
If you are a fine arts ma-
jor in the division of ceram-
ics, look for posters around
the Jenkins Building for in-
formation about meetings.
The fee is $5 annually
which gives members the
privilege of participating in
the sales and voting on
which artists to bring in.
Members are also able to re-
quest money from various
venues synonymous with
the club to aid in paying for
summer school classes.
If you're only interested
in collecting art, there is
much to gain by supporting
these young artists. This
Christmas, pick up some-
thing unusual and beautiful
from the Ceramics Guild for
that someone you care about
while supporting our fabu-
lous and remarkably creative
art students.

Sound familiar? Doesn't
it just seem like this is the
best the filmmakers
can offer us lately? Oh,
sure, they have their Fight
Club and their
American Pie occasionally,
but for the most part, we be-
lieve it be nothing
short of camel crap.
Take for example the
horror movie genre in the
last few years. First there
came Scream, a movie
that didn't "reinvent" the
horror movie, but pretty
much "recycled" it.
Then came the sequel,
which instead of making you
scared, it settled for just
making you jump, much like
its predecessor. I'm pretty
sure that the third install-
ment (due this Christmas)
will not be much
differentjust more beauti-
ful faces to hack up.
Then came the spinoffs,
such as Urban Legend, I Know
What You Did Last Summer,
and StiU Know. I Have a
Pretty Good Idea of What
You '11 Be Doing Nfxt Summer
will probably follow.
All of these movies are
just a little too hip for me, as
if the ending credits should
include the words "Tampax
was there
And these ridiculous ac-
tion movies these days are,
well, ridiculous. The best
example that comes to mind
is that recent movie with
Cuba Gooding Jr. and Skeet
"I wish I was Johnny Depp"
Ulrich about fry cooks and
nuclear weapons.
You know, I'd rather
watch Marilyn Manson show
what he can do without
those extra ribs than sit
through something like that.
We here at The Fountain-
head, which is America's fa-
vorite entertainment
magazine (right?) believe
that if movies are going to
cost seven bucks to
attend, they should be
worth at least half that.
No more movies with the
stars of TV's Friends playing
baseball with monkeys or
passing up Gweneth Paltrow
for somebody's mother.
No more cops who play
by their own rules, no more
Van Damme. Just more
Christopher Walken and
Johnny Depp, thank you.

Champlain is continuing to

using an underwater camera
to map the bottom.
Now it's a 50-year-old
seaplane, sunk in about 200
feet of water, between
Ferrisburgh and Westport,
"It's pretty strange said
Arthur Cohn, director of the
maritime museum, which is
conducting an underwater
survey of Lake Champlain.
"We found 40 shipwrecks,
but this is the first aircraft
The single-engine sea-
plane was found this sum-
mer by a team of museum
The plane was discov-
ered lying upside down.
With its wings and body still
intact, the plane doesn't ap-
pear to have crashed.
Cohn thinks it sank while
floating on the water.
"It was in such good con-
dition, we didn't know if it
went down a week ago or
years ago said Cohn.
The museum contacted
the Federal Aviation Admin-
istration in Burlington and
the New York State Police,
hoping to trace the origin of
the aircraft, a Republic
Seabee, built in 1947.
At first, police thought
the plane might have been
involved in some illicit activ-
ity, namely drug smuggling,
because its demise went tin-
reported and its registration
numbers didn't check out.
But it was later deter-
mined that the plane's regis-
tration had not been re-
newed since 1955, leading
Cohn and others to believe
that the craft went down not
long after that. Given its
age, police have ruled out
foul play, Cohn said. There
are no plans to recover the
"We believe there are
people in the Champlain
Valley who know about this

hope they will come forward
and help solve this mystery
More previously un-
known relics have been
found at the lake bottom,
also. "This summer, survey-
ors also discovered 10
wooden boats mostly canal
boats and other historic sail-
ing vessels, dating back to
the 19th century Cohn
The lake survey project
started in 19. Cohn ex-
pects it will take another
four years before researchers
have surveyed the entire
lake bottom.

Learn to recognize when you talk too much, or when your
co-workers seem uncomfortable. Be sensitive to others.
TAURUS- (April21 -May21)
Love is overflowing. Either a current mate will rekindle
your flame, or you may be introduced to a new and ex-
citing love.
GEMINI: (May 22 - June 21)
If the attitudes of those around you are holding you back,
it's time to be a little bit more self-centered in order to
move yourself closer to your goals.
CANCER: (June 22 - July 23)
Don't try so hard to keep everyone in your small circle
happy. Any attempts to patch up an old relationship
which is on the rocks will be met with frustration.

Money will be tight, but cutting corners in other areas will
make the project possible.

Life is not without flaws, and ihe sooner you convince the
perfectionist attitude in yourself, the happier you are

best of the situation and some good may come of it.
Something very promising may come from a missed op-
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)
Your hard work may not be noticed by others during the
week. Make sure to satisfy yourself first, for you will
never be able to count on others for your happiness.
SAGITTARIUS: (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21)
Get help with money matters - possibly bank statements
and transactions. Your financial footing may be much
more stable than even you expected.
CAPRICORN: (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20)
Don't be so quick to judge others, you truly do not know
what motivates and influences others to do what they
AQUARIUS: (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19)
You may feel yourself being drawn into a very unusual rela-
tionship, but one that will keep your interest for many
years to come.
PISCES: (Feb. 20 - March 20)
If you keep your feelings under wrap, it will create emo-
tional upheavals, even though there is an illusion of

ing of the drums were im-
pressive. While not entirely
drum-driven, the sound was
kick-ass. The vocals were
loud and aggressive and the
accompaniment was rock-
solid as well. The combina-
tion of Heath and irrepress-
ible vocals made this the
band of the night. Well, they
would have been if 7 Ton
Diesel hadn't shown up.
If you ever plan to see
Ton Diesel perform live, do
not, I repeat, do not wear ear
plugs. You need to feel the
music as well as hear it. Just
make sure you are healthy
and have no heart ailments
because these guys will
surely beat you to death
with sound. Picture a 7-ton
diesel engine and the pure
and unadulterated noise it's
capable of producing. With
that image in mind, you can
get a pretty close assump-
tion as to the nature of the
band's delightful show of ag-
gressive sonic blasting.
Attacking in full Hallow-
een garb and displaying
their love for pure noise,
they pushed the crowd into
a frenzy. I thought the
owner of Peasant's was
about to poop in his britches
because everyone moved in
a manner that reminded me
of a riot. With devilish vocals
and heavy bass and drums,
these guys wanted to pulver-
ize the joint into the ground
with a sledgehammer and
then run over everyone's
heads with a John Deere
Surprisingly, they did all
this without making my qjrs
bleed or giving me a head-
ache from the music. If you
missed Hell Night '99, you
missed one hell of a show.

ReG Fees aRe spem?
take the time to find out exactly where all those miscellaneous
fees go. Three law students at the U. of Wisconsin, Madison,
did take the time, and they didn't like what they found. In fact,
they were so pissed off about it. they sued the administration in 1996. Now, their
case, Southworth vs. Grebe, is headed for the U.S. Supreme Court.
In the case, students Scott
Southworth, Amy Schoepke
and Keith Bannach � who
have since graduated � claim
that paying mandatory fees
that go toward campus organi-
zations that oppose their ideo-
logical or political beliefs is a
violation of their free-speech
rights. Meanwhile, the univer-
sity argues that in a college
atmosphere of differing view-
points, all campus groups are
entitled to support.

university, these students are
forced to fund groups who
advocate opposing beliefs. I

So far, the law seems to be siding with
the students, who have gotten four more
UW students to join the plaintiff list. And
in a landmark ruling in August 1998. the
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh
Circuit decided the school did not have a
"vital policy interest" compelling enough
to require a student to pay fees for
groups with differing ideologies. Although
the court's decision only applies to uni-
versities in Illinois, Indiana and
Wisconsin, it will probably affect the reg-
ulation of student fees at public universi-
ties everywhere. Stay tuned.

My mistake!
Shortly after learning that the
Doppler Shift of the stars dated the
universe at roughly 15 billion years, I
ran into a campus preacher. He

and MIT have spent decades studying
and quantifying galactic redshrft, radlotsotope dating, background radlaton
andcarbon-14 dating � allfornothing!
It turns out that a Anger-pointing Bible-thumper, with no more than an
llth-grade education, has remained one step ahead of the country's
nuclear physicists. But campus preachers have to realize that they're not
trained scientists. In fact, they're trained In nothing but Mind belief.
Campus preachers will never convert me,
and I doubt they'll convert any other stu-
dents. How Ironic that a preacher who
would proudly shout the Christian con-
cept, "narrow Is the path to salvation,
would do so on a university campus � the
very place least likely to endorse a narrow
mind. College Is a place for us to tran-
scend simple-mindedness � a trait so
flamboyantly displayed by preachers.
The campus preachers around the
country, narrow themselves, represent
the worst part of Christianity: they are
loud, offensive, prejudiced, loud and
loud. While the campus preachers will
never be able to change me into an Irra-
tional, thoughtless creature motivated
only by a desire to avoid hell, they unde-
niably serve a unique and desirable purpose on campuses around the
country: entertainment. Students would ask them to leave but then what
would they do In between classes?

computer to the hypothetical. What do you get?
Acceptable Use Polices. Some schools are instituting
these policies to limit how we use the Web and to
make sure we act responsibly, ethically and lawfully
� guess they don't trust us to do that on our own.
The new emphasis on the dos and don'ts of comput-
er use on campus stems from changing technologies. A
few years ago, we couldn't download MP3s on the
web. And we certainly couldn't view high-quality video
or download large software programs instantly. Fast
university connections have made it easy to down-
load mondo files and hard to police � those pesky
administrators can look over our shoulders in public
places like computer labs and libraries, but it's
almost impossible to keep an eye on us in our
dorm rooms. But that's not stopping them �
many campuses are squelching the download
mania by limiting bandwidth. Leigh Chodos, a
Boston U. senior and computer lab T.A says,
"Our server limits downloads on our connection to
2MBs. which isn't large enough to download MP3s
or large software programs
Other common computer don'ts: e-mail spamming and
viewing pages that might harass others. And the U. of Georgia
takes an anti-entrepreneurial policy by forbidding advertising on personal
pages hosted by the university. If you're the next Bill Gates, you'd better check to make sure your
college doesn't crash your computer use.

Our favorite vampire stayer is currently kicking some college ass at the fictitious UC

Without Buffy, we would see oorpses

town. Do we really want to see
Sunnydale become another L.A.?
I wouldn't be the same without Buffy
either. She's been a true friend,

I probably never would have learned

It's Friday. You've spent 20 hours of the last week
elbow deep in soap suds and cafeteria trays. You pick
up your paycheck. It's peanuts. But hey, you're a
college student Low-paying jobs
are a pre-req, right? Thousands of students are proving
that theory wrong every day. They've taken the bull by
the horns and leapt on the back of today's booming
. And while you're
earning peanuts, they're feasting on some high-quality
cashews. Some of them, anyway. Like any investment,
stock trading is a risky business. But with a lot of

you very well may be on the way to PlOTI I.

� It washes you out. drags you under and never lets you

the lyrical content of Distance fo Here, Lives fourth LP.
you realize the album actually has a massively positive
message. Just ask Ed Kowalczyk, the bands eccentric and
compassionate frontman. He says the new record is all
about being more positive and loving � a message he
says makes the new record unique and worthwhile, espe-
cially to America's youth. "I think were on the cusp of
being able to incarnate a powerful group of people who
combine Intelligence, love and compassion for the world.
But I think we need more and more art � even more rock 'n'
roll - to create a soundtrack for moving on In love and In posltlvlty Not only does Kowalczyk talk the
talk, but hell walk the walk with his upcoming tour which will bring his soundtrack of positive love

the new James Bond film The World is Not Enough hits
screens worldwide this winter. Manson, who is the lead
vixen of the post-industrial superband Garbage, will be the
one singing Bond's theme song (with the help of an 83-
piece orchestra they used to help record the track).
Yet while being picked to croon the theme seems like the
ultimate in golden opportunities. Manson insists it was
more like destiny for her famed four piece.
"We've always wanted to do a Bond theme, literally from
the first day we came together, it was something we could
do lustice to. A lot of it has to do with the sound of my voice
- it's quite lower than some of the girls who have done
Bond themes in the past - they have all had sort of girlie
voices she says. "I also think the way the Bond songs are
put together is sort of the same as the way we put songs
together, in that you take something that is essentially tradi-
tional with some technological and classical elements
� something that seems very pop-oriented
and easy to digest at the surface, but if you
dig deeper, should you wish, there are sort
of threads in a darker vein
The video is already in circulation on
MTV, and soon enough Garbage will also
be in circulation via MTV as they ready to
headline MTV's fall College Invasion Tour
in support of last year's multi platinum
album Version 2 0.
"We wanted to come and tour the States before we quit this
whole cycle, and we were tying to put a tour together at the same
lime as MTV approached us to see if we would be interested ,n doing the Campus
invasion. Seerng as how we have such a huge following in the schools around Amenca we
thought it would make a really good package for our fans Manson says.
The College Invasion Tour also includes Orange County rockers Lit (you know, those
guys in the bowling videol and a free interactive daytime festival with booths where
concert-goers watch videos, play Playstation games, try out to be part of The Real
World cast o, even learn how to mix and sc-sc sc scratch records with lessons provid
ed by a guest DJ.
As hard as it is to believe, the College Invasion gig will be Garbage's first ever col-
lege-oriented tour. -Sometimes these things just don't work out. Sometimes when
we're touring, the colleges aren't in session or vice versa, and this is the first time it
has ,ust sort of clicked for our schedule. It's great because we know that a
groundswell of our support comes from the colleges and universities of America,
and this seems like a great way to finish up the tour No kidding. We ,ust hope they

ve the advice
dear blabby, J
My boyfriend and I
have never had sex.
We're going to differ-
ent colleges next year
and he says that we
should have sex before
leaving for college to
prove our love for each
other. I'm not sure.
What do you think?
Do It or Don't?, soon-to-be-
freshman at U. of Oregon
Dump the creep! He's WAY out of line.
Save yourself for someone who respects
U and is less immature than trying to get
U knocked up. � Liz, Whlttler College
We've been dating for more than two
years, and we've never had sex. In the
fall, we'll be going to different colleges
but we are still going to wait. We think it
proves that we love each other by keeping
our relationship alive over the distance
instead of using the separation as an
excuse for sex. It's easy to have sex but
waiting really proves how much you care
about each other. Why would sex prove
your love? People have sex all the time
for reasons other than love. If you really
were in love you would know it and wouldn't need to prove it with sex. � Dan and
Karri, U. of Louisville and Anbury College
Don't do it! In fact, unless you two are going to the same college, break it off now,
or at least agree to see other people. There are so many opportunities that you
will miss out on because you're attached to someone who isn't at the same
school. The missed opportunities and jealousy will tear the relationship apart. �
Chris, U. of Cincinnati
If I were you when your boyfriend made that statement, I would have slapped him
in the head. You don't have to have sex to prove your love before you go to col
lege or for any other reason! There are other ways to show your love for one
another: send each other mushy letters or silly presents, talk on the phone or
make a video of yourself telling your boyfriend how much you love him and miss
him. There are so many alternatives, you just have to have a creative mind. Sex
should be special, not a good-bye tactic, especially if you are both virgins. Do it
when you feel it's right and for the right reasons, not because you're leaving for
college. � Marcle
Personally I think you should have sex with him. If you're going to different col
leges, but you're planning on sticking together then you won't have many other
chances to do it. And if you're planning on breaking up after senior year do it
anyway, because if he sucks you won't feel quite as bad leaving him, and if
he's good you can get a few pointers for when you go to college. � Emily.
Bryn Mawr College
Have you no respect for yourself? Having sex is not the way for you to prove your
love to each other, even if you really want to and are completely ready for it.
Based on the fact that you are questioning it at all suggests to me that you are
not completely ready. If you were, you would have done it willingly already. If he
wants to prove his love to you, he should respect your comfort zone, not pres-
sure you into giving in to his carnal desires. � Adrian Breltenbach, Metropolitan
State College of Denver
dear blabby,
My friend and I are in
the same English class
and we had to write a
paper for our final. I
worked really hard and
got a B- but my friend
bought her paper off
the Internet and got an
A. Now she's bragging
about how easy it is to
get good grades.
Should I rat on her?
Honest Abe at New York U.
Rat on her! You know very well the policy
that we have here at NYU: no plagiarism
You are doing no good keeping youi
mouth shut, you are shaming yourself
and your other classmates. Many profes
sors grade on a curve and your friend
could be throwing off the curve. Stand up
for what is right! And remember that if
you do, your grade might improve. You
can always write an anonymous letter to
the professor and drop it in their mailbox
- Christian, New York U.
It is your duty to find out where your
friend got the paper and report it to the
professor. Crime doesn't pay. Cheaters
never win. Heshe who laughs last
laughs best. You owe it to yourself. �
I don't think this problem is so much about honesty as it is about you wanting
to receive praise for your honesty. You did the right thing � you wrote your own
paper. Don't let your friend's laziness affect you so much. Relax, it'll all come
back to your friend in the long run. Karma, baby. � Vlckl, Penn State U
University Park
My girlfriend goes to college In another state
so we talk on the phone all the time. I just got
my first phone bill and It's $280! I don't have
that kind of cash and I can't call mom and dad
to beg for money. What should I do?
Broke at Bryn Mawr
I'm gay, but I haven't told anybody yot. My
problem is that I'm starting to get a crush on
my roommate, but I'm afraid if I tell him, he'll
tell everyone about me. Should I tell him or
just suffer in silence?

way-out news from a campus near you
Droid Hall
Maybe their light
sabers lost their luster.
Maybe Jabba the Hut's
stench started getting to
them. Whatever the rea-
son, Star Wars fanatics
at MIT refused to confine
the force to their dorm
rooms any longer. Off
they went, into the night, to deco-
rate the famous MIT dome as R2 D2.
Destructive? Heck no. These campus
pranksters acted with the honor of a jedi warrior �
not only did they leave police detailed instructions on
dismantling the droid, they established an excellent
arrest-avoidance technique by leaving a box of dough-
nuts as well. Or maybe that was just a clever way to
keep the cops busy while they groomed campus grounds
into one of Queen Amidala's infamous hairstyles.
Stopping Stop Day?
U. of Kansas
For one day each year, this rebel school puts on Stop
Day. a one-day deal before finals week where everyone
puts the stop on everything � from homework
to tests. Unfortunately, we think the power
may have gone to Kansas State Us head �
there is actually talk of stopping stop day.
With respect to the long-standing tradition, we
have only two words for those whose toes are
applying the brakes: Stop it.
Do the Right Thing
Davidson College
Thirty bucks can buy a lot of things. But
it certainly can't buy sophomore Kim
Gardner's high moral code. The ethical
optimist, after finding $30 in the
street, taped a sign to the s
walk where she found the dough,
requesting the rightful owner
to give her a call. Turns
out. the rightful owner was
just to her right � it was
lost by the friend with
whom she'd been walking
at the time. In the future.
we recommend a better
use for Kims masking
tape: to seal up her
friend's pockets.
Kansas State U.
And you ,
excess fat
on your food
was a pest?
Try excess pest
parts. That's right.
Researchers at Kansas State U. have determined that
the common bug zapper � you know, that
buzzing, blue-lit thingamabob hanging
directly over your family picnic table �
can blow bug bits like wings, antennae,
legs, eyes and innards up to six feet
away. Sounds yummy, huh? Well, never
fear. Microbiologist James Urban has
some reassuring words for fretful pic-
nickers: "I don't think it's as risky as
unsafe sex or something like that
Assuming no one tries to get busy with
one. of course.
