BOG proposal heads to General Assembly
Tuition hike due in part
to lack of state funds
Terra Steinbeiser
NEWS EDITOR
When the UNC System Board
of Governors voted to raise tu-
ition at ECU and four other state
universities, questions were
raised about the neccesity of the
increase by students and offi-
cials.
At the Feb. 11 BOG meeting
in Chapel Hill, the board ap-
proved a 2.1 percent tuition in-
crease for all 16 system cam-
puses, a $32 increase for ECU's
transition to a doctoral univer-
sity and a $150 increase that was
requested by the Board of Trust-
ees. If the proposal is passed by
the NC General Assembly in
March, the increase for resident
undergraduates for the 2000-01
school year will total $203.
According to Richard Brown,
vice chancellor of Administra-
tion and Finance, the ECU Board
of Trustees requested a $300 tu-
ition hike for the 2000-01 school
year after reviewing proposals
made by thejidministration con-
cerning faculty salaries, library
resources and financial aid. The
BOG voted to grant the univer-
sity half of the amount re-
quested;
Brown said the university
needs the money to maintain
academic equality with other in-
stitutions.
"The main concern for ECU
is that if we don't have similar
resources to those of our sister
institutions, then we'll lose when
it comes to getting faculty mem-
bers and other resources Brown
said. "It matters when it's a com-
petitive issue
ECU's recent classification as
a doctoral II status institution
also contributed to the increase.
The $32 fee is implemented by
the state to fund additional re-
sources associated with the new
status. The Carnegie Foundation,
which is responsible for classify-
ing universities previously
ranked ECU as a comprehensive
university; a four-year institution
offering master's degrees and lim-
ited higher degrees. The doctoral
II classification is a step up in
terms of academic opportunities,
putting ECU on about the same
level as UNC-Greensboro. Re-
search universities like NCSU and
UNC-Chapel Hill are the highest
ranking institutions.

Student hit by car on 10th Street
Victim remains in ICU,

Angela Harne
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
Early Friday morning ECU
student Mark Eagle was hit by a
vehicle while attempting to cross
10th Street near Miami Subs.
Eagle was transported to Pitt
County Memorial Hospital
(PCMH) with serious head and
internal injuries.
Garrie Moore, director of Stu-
dent Life, said that he visited
Eagle's family Saturday.
"I have not personally seen
Mark Moore said. "But Student
Life and 1 send our thoughts and
prayers to him and his family
Moore said that he told
Eagle's family that Student Life
is available to assist them in any
way and at any time.
Eagle's family told Moore that
friends and staff members have
been visiting their son regularly.
Tom Younce, assistant direc-
tor of the ECU Police Depart-
ment, said that as of Monday af-
ternoon at 2 p.m. Eagle was in
the intensive care unit.
"He is stable, but still in criti-
cal condition Younce said.
PCMH was unable to com-
ment on Eagle due to confiden-
tiality laws.
According to the ECU PD
crime log, the vehicle which
struck Eagle was driven by a stu-
dent who was arrested by the
Greenville Police Department
(GI'D).
No further information was
available from the GPD about the
suspect.
GPD Officer Robert
Brewington was at the scene of
the crime, but failed to file his
report before going on vacation.
Brewington will not return until
March 7.
TEC will provide further in-
formation as it becomes avail-
able.

New ID numbers may take
place of social security method
Students have mixed
reactions to ASC proposal
Angela Harne
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
In an effort to increase security, the Associa-
tion of Student Governments (ASG) passed a pro-
posal for universities to stop using social security
numbers as the main form of student identifica-
tion.
Cliff Webster, president of the ECU student
government association (SGA), Michael Orr, sopho-
more class president, Leane Bailey, day represen-
tativechair of screenings and Leigh Hancock, jun-
ior class vice president, represented ECU at the
meeting earlier this month.
According to Orr, the ASG discussed the use of
social security numbers. He said the ASG passed a
law stating that they do not like the use of social
security numbers as the main identification num-
ber of the university.
The vote was passed by all present, with the
exception of ECU.
"There was no structure in the request at all
Webster said. "Our meeting was rushed and we did
not really have time to sit down and discuss the
idea through. I was not going to pass such a rushed
idea. Besides, 1 believe that the tuition issue was a
bigger pressing issue, rather than the use of social
security numbers

student overdoses
No criminal
charges issued
Angela Harne
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
A freshman overdosed last
week while inhaling
tetrafluoroethane, a substance
found in everyday dust
cleaner.
James HefUn was trans-
ported by EMS to Pitt County
Memorial Hospital after his
friends were concerned for his
safety and called for help.
According to freshman
Matt Woolard, he was told by
Heflin's friends to check on
him every 30 minutes because
he was very drunk.
"It was scary Woolard
said. "I think it was a result
from peer pressure though
Woolard said freshman
Michael Bennett made the call
for help.
Officers and EMTs were
met by Woolard at Aycock
when they arrived on the
scene.
Freshman Jerren Davis said
the incident was frightening.
"I learned that we have to
watch out for one another, but
it was really scary Davis said.
According to Frank
Knight, patrol captain of the
ECU Police Department,
Heflin was taken to the hos-
pital and released after treat-
ment.
Woolard said Bennett,
Davis, freshman John Kranz
and himself went to the hos-
pital with Heflin until they
were told that he would be
fine.
Knight said no charges
were issued.
"We did not charge him
with criminal reports Knight
said. "Instead, the issue is now
in the hands of the univer-
sity
Heflin received a campus
appearance ticket and met
with the dean of students,who
issued him a judicial action
report.
"I have to attend counsel-
ing sessions Heflin said. "In
addition 1 have to write a let-
ter to Office Depot asking
them to remove
tetrafluoroethane from their
products
Heflin said students
should think before they act.
"I am feeling a lot better
Heflin said. "In the future, I
don't think students should
even try inhaling substances.
They make you act out of your
head and once things are nor-
mal again you will probably
disapprove of your actions
Mary Louis Antieau, assis-
tant dean of students, could
not comment on the incident
due to confidentiality laws.
, Heflin will not be expelled
from his residence hall because
expulsion from campus occurs
only when one has possession
of a weapon, threatens or
harms another or is caught
selling drugs.
Beth Credle, of Student
Health Services, said inhalants
are most commonly used by
middle and high school stu-
dents.
"I think they use them
regularly because they are
cheap and are in everyday
household products Credle
said. "Users get a quick high,
but don't realize the serious
side effects, including death
Credle said Student Health
wishes that if students know
anyone who is a regular in-
haler to get them help imme-
diately.
Inhalants are breathable
chemicals that produce mind-
altering vapors. People do not
think of inhalants as drugs be-
cause most of the products
were never meant to be used
in that sense. Inhalants are in-
gested by either sniffing or
snorting through the nose,
"bagging" by inhaling fumes
from a plastic bag or "huffing"
by stuffing an inhalant�
soaked rag into the mouth.
Nearly all inhalants pro-
duce effects similar to anes-
thetics, which act to slow
down body functions, giving
the user a feeling of stimula-
tion.
Sniffing highly concen-
trated amounts of solvents or
aerosol sprays can produce
heart failure and instant death.
Sniffing can cause death the
first time or any time. High
concentrations of inhalants
can cause death from suffoca-
tion by displacing the oxygen
the oxygen in the lungs.
Deliberately inhaling prod-
ucts from a paper bag greatly
increases the chance of suffo-
cation, although when using
aerosol or vaporous products
for their legitimate purposes,
like painting or cleaning, it is
wise to do so in a well-venti-
lated room or outdoors.

Hunt grants job opportunities
MPA Program benefits
graduate students
Martina Clyburn
STAFF WRITER
Graduate students in the public
administration program have the
opportunity to hone their skills with
the Masters of Public Administra-
tion Program (MPA) designed by
Governor Jim Hunt.
The program trains graduates for
a career in public services by teach-
ing a problem solving approach to
public management and broaden-
ing students' understanding of eco-
nomic, political, legal and social is-
sues.
Participants are selected through
a nomination process for one of two
areas: the Presidential Management
Internship (PMI) and the
Governor's Management Fellowship
(GMF). GMF recipients are chosen
to work for a state department in
Raleigh while PMI students work at
a federal department anywhere in
the United States, but usually in
Washington D.C.
ECU boasts the most number of
graduates selected for the program
over any other state university. ECU
graduates who have participated in
the program and have been placed
in various government positions in-
clude Clyde Higgs, who is now the
executive assistant to the president
of N.C. Community Colleges; Kelly
Rudd, who works in the Department
of Environmental and Natural Re-
sources and Matt Oathout ,who is
with the State Department of Health
and Human Services.
"The MPA Program is very proud
that these graduates have been of-
fered the position to work for North
Carolina and are doing a great
job said Dr. Carmine Scavo, asso-
ciate professor and director of the
MPA Program.
The organization is approaching
its third year and universities such
as Duke, NCSU, UNC-Chapel Hill,
NC Central, UNC-Greensboro,
UNC-Charlotte, Appalachian State
and ECU have participated. Each
school can nominate three people,
but only 10-12 positions are avail-
able.
"Former Director John Whitley
and current director Jack Lemons
have been complementary toward
ECU students Scavo said.
The selection.process for ECU
students begins with a nomination
from Scavo and the nomination
committee. Together they choose
students who exemplify academic
excellence and who want to work
for the state. They then move on to
the assessment process which in-
volves an orientation phase, an ex-
tensive interview by senior employ-
ees and state government officials,
a writing exam and a case study test.
"The MPA Program focused on
real world problems and the educa-

Flood brings in more illnesses
More bacteria, mold
cause health problems
Josette LaChance

FOR PEOPLE

If you didn't sign up for ROTC as a
freshman or sophomore, you can still
catch up to your classmates by
attending Army ROTC Camp Chal-
lenge, a paid six-week summer
course in leadership training.
By the time you have graduated from
college, you'll have the credentials of
an Army officer. You'll also have
the self-confidence and discipline
it takes to succeed in college and
beyond.
Residents of eastern North Carolina may notice an
increase in minor illnesses that is due in part to the
flooding that took place last September.
As people once again develop flu symptoms and
catch colds, many are wondering if this year's flu out-
break has anything to do with the flood.
Dr. Nicholas Benson, of the School of Medicine's
Emergency Medicine Department, said there are fac-
tors of the flood that have caused some of the flu prob-
lems.
"Problems have come about through people being
crammed into shelters Benson said. "Outbreaks have
also occurred throughout state flood relief workers car-
rying the flu without knowing
However, Jolene Jemigan, director of Clinical Op-
erations, said there is no connection between the flood
and the flu.outbreak and offered a different explana-
tion for the increase of flu cases this season.
"One thing about the flu is it can be easily passed
in campus settings Jernigan said. "When there are
lots of people In one class, the air does not have time
to refresh itself. In addition, one will see lots of flu
outbreaks in residence halls because so people are liv-
ing together
Dr. Betty Straub, associate dean and director of
Health Promotion, said the flood has caused other
health problems besides the flu.
According to Straub, five students were treated for
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder because of problems as
sociated with the flood. I
Straub said skin problems were also a result of the'
flood.
"Skin rashes caused by the direct contact of flood
waters has become an issue Straub said. "The waters i
contained a bacteria which irritated the skin .
Jernigan said that the spring season will most likely,
bring on more problems.

that the proposal was justified.
"I thought it was too large of an
incease, especially at UNC and
NCSU and the proposal was not
well put together said board mem-
ber John Sanders. "The 2.1 percent
increase makes sense, but increases
at ECU, UNC-C and UNC-W are not
neccesary right now
Benjamin Ruffin, chairman of
the BOG, said the raise in tuition is
necessary due to the shortage of
state funds that resulted from hur-
ricane and flood recovery.
"This is a big problem we face as
a board said Ruffin. "We said that
we would place our priorities sec-
ond to those of eastern North Caro-
lina. The funds are not as plentiful
as they have been in the past
North Carolina has to match 25
percent of the recovery and relief
funding provided by FEMA.
While ECU students, many of
whom were flood victims them-
selves, may feel that the state is
charging them to help others who
were affected by the disaster, Brown
said that the financial woes of the
state far outweigh those of the stu-
dents.
"It was certainly discussed and
of some concern that the student
population was impacted by Floyd
and the flood, but it isn't a one-to-
one correlation Brown said. "The
financial problem is much broader
for the state than for the student
population
UNC System President Molly
Broad has proposed a $36.8 million
financial aid package to the General
Assembly to help students deal with
this most recent financial blow.
"We're not anticipating any
other significant financial aid pro
grams other than the one proposed
by Molly Broad, but that isn't even,
official yet said Rose Mary Stelma
director of Financial Aid. According;
to Stelma, about half of ECU stu
dents are already receiving some-
sort of financial aid. The depart-
ment is expecting an increase in the.
number of students applying for fi-
nancial aid for the coming school;
year as a direct result of tuition and ;
fee hikes.

of town on business this week and i

quest was written because ASG's actual disagreement
with the use of social security numbers was not exactly
stated.
Despite problems with the request, Orr said it would
be sent to the registrars' offices, chancellors and stu-
dent body presidents of all universities in the UNC sys-
tem.
"We are trying to reach all universities to express
our disagreement with the use of social security num-
bers Orr said. "Rather than using social security num-
bers as identification, we are hoping universities will
give each student a random number as their new iden-
tification
Orr said the final decision will be put in the hands
of each chancellor at each individual university, and
then taken to the Board of Trustees (BOT).
Chancellor Eakin was out of town in meetings and
could not be contacted for comment on the matter.
Webster said he has not yet received the letter from
the ASG.
According to Associate Registrar Angela Anderson,
the Registrar's Office has not received the letter from
ASG at present time.
Anderson said the Registrar's Office is willing to talk
with students to find a new solution.
If Chancellor takln agrees to the ASG request,
Anderson said it can be done, although it will not a be
minor undertaking.
"The new concept is not new Anderson said. "In
the '70s (ECU) used random numbers for students. The
first two digits were their expected graduation date,
followed by six random numbers. Although that sys-
tem was problematic because once students graduated
they did not remember their number. If needed, we
can go back to that system, though it would require
rewriting the whole computer system, including Stu-
dent Desktop, financial aid need, tuition, etc
According to Anderson, ECU has tried to eliminate
the problems other universities have had with the use
of social security numbers.
"We have raised security levels and have never had
a problem with the security Anderson said. "For ex-
ample, PIN numbers are needed to access the Student
Desktop, photo identification is needed to receive per-
sonal Information, like transcripts, and posting of
grades by social security numbers has been stopped
Orr said there are pros and cons to the use of
social security numbers.
"I feel it is OK to use them for grades and per-
sonal information, but I don't think they should be
posted or a part of our everyday identification
Bailey said information can be gathered about
you with or without a social security number.
"I think that there are more ways to get informa-
tion on someone, besides the use of their social se-
curity number Bailey said. "If someone wants to
get your files they can get them with no problems. I
think changing the system will only cause problems,
especially for ECU. I feel it would cost us a lot of
money
Hancock said the system is fine the way it is.
"The four of us Webster, Orr, Bailey and I voted
against the request Hancock said.
"As far as 1 know, ECU has never had a problem
with the use of social security numbers. I think that
it will be a huge event if everything needs to be
changed and truly unnecessary
Freshman Franshone Bass said voiding use of social
security numbers is a good idea. "I am all for it Bass
said. "If someone gets a hold of your social security
number than they basically have your life
Freshman Brooke Harrison also said she likes the
ideaEveryone has a social security number which is
openly available and accessible here on campus
Harrison said. "Therefore, if a student loses their One
Card then their personal information is out there-for
easy access
Sophomore Aquene Herdandez said she doesn't
have time to learn a new number, and thinks the sys-
tem is fine the way it is.
"We use our social security number for everything
Herdandez said. "Why should we have to learn another
number. That would only make my life harder let'?
just keep it simple and stick to the use of our social
security numbers

II anyone is worried about
security, the problem can be
easily solved on the university s
end by insisting we show our
student IDs more often. By all
means, do not make us memorize
another number.
OURVIEW
Good for the SCA. Ours was the only student government to vote
down the recent proposal to change our ID numbers to a random PIN.
Thank goodness for the level-headed people that speak for our sanity.
Between the ATM codes, the phone numbers, the e-mail passwords,
the addresses, the course numbers, the classroom numbers, the birth-
days and other people's phone numbers, it makes you wonder just how
many digits the brain can hold. The social security number is an old
standby, one we've all had memorized since high school, one we will
always have to know. Why make everything harder than it has to be?
Honestly, how often do you think some creepy student goes through
our records and ferrets out our social security numbers to look at our
grades? No one at the Registrar's Office can remember a time social secu-
rity numbers caused a security breech. The worst that could happen would
be that someone runs in the office and gives out our social security num-
bers and changes our schedule just to be mean. That problem can be
solved simply by enforcing the rule that students must present IDs to
make schedule changes.
Picture it: You go in to make your schedule change and you forget
that random, meaningless number that some mysterious official assigned
you. You have to get out of the massive line and return to your domicile
to look it up, unless you've lost the piece of paper it was written on. Or,
they could print it on your student ID card like they do the social security
number. That certainly would defeat the purpose of changing it.
If anyone is worried about security, the problem can be easily solved
on the university's end by insisting we show our student IDs more often.
By all means, do not make us memorize another number. On that note,
we express our gratitude to the SCA for saving us from another massive
hassle.
OPINION COLUMN

Professors shouldn't enforce attendence policies
t. -
Dorcas A. Brule
OPINION COLUMNIST
pw Wait a minute. What do you mean I can only miss
this class three times and then I receive a grade de-
' duction? Well, nice of you to let me know, but are
� you under the impression that you're paying for my
education?
-Personally, I feel there shouldn't bean attendance
; policy. It's just ludicrous. Am I not an "adult" opting
j-teifurther my education at a university? And, also,
�T�ifVt it true that I'm paying for it? Regardless of
whether mommy and daddy are footing the bill,
whether you're racking up mountains of school loans
or are on scholarship, it isn't your professor's busi-
ness whether or not you decided to attend your eight
o'clock Biology class every Monday, Wednesday and
Frftiay.
I contend that it would be different if there were a
school-wide policy enforcing attendance, but there isn't
one. The option of taking attendance is left up to the
individual instructor. It doesn't seem right to me that 1
have to suffer the tyranny of attendance regulations that
range from nonexistent in one class to one absence and
you've failed in another.
Attendance should be required across the board, or
not at all. And as it stands at this university, if the "pow-
ers that be" don't care if I'm in class, I don't see why my
individual professor should.
I think it is my business and my problem if I choose
not to attend a class. In the end, the students who don't
show up to class are only hurting themselves, and it is
their own money and time that they are wasting, not
the professors The professor gets paid regardless of my
presence in their classroom.

OPINION COLUMN
; You are happier than you think
. Demosthenes
OPINION COLUMNIST
Happiness: the goal of human existence. Or is it?
If you think about the basic reason for many of your
auflns, you will discover they are mostly for your own
bitjiefit either directly or indirectly. Why do you con-
&& yourself to be unhappy, and what do you do to
njitge yourself happier?
j7Do you work hard to gain power or money to bet-
ter yourself socially? Do you exercise and compete at
a high level or do you use substances to further your
perception of happiness? Maybe you enjoy uncondi-
tional giving and receive indirect pleasure. One smile
is all I need to satisfy me.
Have you ever locked eyes with a complete stranger
and shared a total eye squinching smile? Sometimes I
live from one of these rare moments to the next be-
cause they let me feel that there is joy and hope and
love in the world and they make me forget about ev-
erything that is getting me down.
Now there is a concept, forget everything that is
getting you down for a second. Just place it aside,
maybe to be dealt with at a later time. Now look around
you and take a deep breath of your environment
(please skip this step if you happen to be reading this
on the John.)
Ask yourself if it is really worth running around
like a chicken minus its head so that you can feel like
you are accomplishing something and contributing
toward your future happiness. I ask you about your
present happiness. Half-price pitchers at Chico's might
be your answer, but that is just a surface level event.
There is a deeper happiness, I am sad to say, many
people do not experience fully. How is it that some
people seem to flow through the dance of life partnered
with happiness, while others seem to stumble and trip
all over themselves as they try to look graceful? Their
problem is that they are concentrating so hard on the
appearance of grace that they fail to achieve grace it-
self. When people strive for the illusions of happiness:
wealth, power, status, they are barricaded off from a
deeper sense of it.
As a counterbalancing point, just to show you I'm
not a total idealist with visions of sugar plums and free
love dancing in my head all day, 1 will put forth the
proposition that human beings need to suffer. In the
movie "The Matrix the machines find that the hu-
man mind would not accept a Utopian world with free-
dom and happiness and rejected such programming.
Perhaps through suffering, we create a balance and a
point of reference for our happiness. In any case, de-
pression is a serious subject (no pun intended) and so is
happiness, and it will take much more than my feeble
ramblings to unravel their intricate relationship.
I believe you can learn to be happy and that people
in this society, and especially in this university envi-
ronment, have so many reasons for happiness that they
should be wallowing in joy 23-and-a-half hours a day.
Unfortunately, this is not the case and will not ever be
the case until one day when we all take some tablets
daily and live in a state of bliss. All you have to do is
pay attention to your deeper level of happiness and
smile, until we meet again.

OPINION COLUMN
American inventions something to be proud of
Ryan Kennemur
OPINION COLUMNIST
America. It's such a strong and patriotic word. I feel
like it's ours to hold and be proud of, and that's even
considering the fact that it's also used behind the words
"Central" and "South Think about it: We are a super
power. Go anywhere else in the world and utter the
words "United States of America" and see what hap-
pens. Actually, many people will swear in some for-
eign language and spit in your general direction.
But what they don't realize is just how many things
we have given them, especially in the way of inven-
tion. The French are the most standoffish to us, even
after they gave us that big statue in honor of toga par-
ties. They just have an irrational view that everything
we do is completely bone-headed, whether it is a good
idea or not, as shown in this exchange circa 17S6:
Frenchwoman: "Did you hear about the newest
thing in America? They have invented something
called 'soap and it supposedly cleanses the body and
makes one smell better
Frenchman: "Is that so? Well, no wife of mine will
EVER use such an absurd product
French Woman: "Also, the women of the country
shave their legs and underarms with something called
a 'razor
Frenchman: (His voice made comical a la a clothes-
pin pinching his nasal passages.) Ugh! How disgust-
ing! Will they never learn that the female body is more
attractive with fur?"
Frenchwoman: "Why are we speaking in English? I
mean, we don't even have funny accents or say 'zee'
instead of 'the
Frenchman: "Because the American bag of mule;
dung who is writing this neglected to! I shall sell his;
eyes to my angry sister
But I digress. Aside from the Frenchman's disdain
we truly have a creative past. Think about it: We in
vented the automobile, the cotton gin and McDonald's
I mean heck, folks! Our own Steve Guttenberg in-
vented the printing press, I assume between "Three'
Men and a Baby" and "Three Men and a Little Lady
I, for one, feel very accomplished, even though I per-
sonally had nothing to uo with the conception of any
of them.
But, as we as a nation collectively pat ourselves ori
the back, we must realize one thing. For every one as
founding, life-changing invention, there are a million'
that have failed to cut the proverbial mustard. For evJ
ery steam engine, there's a Topsy Tail, a Bedazzler (the
rhinestone stapler) and Garden Weasel.
That's why I, being a person with a wish to present
factual albeit fun information but lacking the time for
research, have decided to hold a contest. Send in your
idea for the most ridiculous (yet somehow useful) in-
vention you've ever seen or thought of, and I'll put it
in a future article and buy you a Coke. No wait, they)
don't sell that here. Well, I guess I'll have to up the;
ante and make it a CD from CD Alley. Send your in
vention ideas to the e-mail below by March 9. Not ar,
lot of work for a CD, I think. Now if you'll excuse me;
I'm going to invent the hairtooth brush.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Kleinschmit should get some school pride
Dear Editor,
I am writing in response to Steven Kleinschmit's
opinion column from Thursday, Feb. 17, entitled "Call
me Richie-Rich, just give me a few years
As a graduate of ECU and a staff member in the
Admissions Office, I was very disheartened to read
such comment's made by a current student.
Kleinschmit stated that he could not attend Duke
because his parents couldn't afford it, but he "wants
to make sure that someday my children will not be
denied a world-class education because I cannot af-
ford it
For your information, you are receiving a world-
class education.
U.S. News & World Report listed ECU as one of the
top public universities in the South. In addition, they
ranked the School of Medicine No. 5 in rural medicine
and No. 8 in family medicine.
ECU has the only accredited art school in North
Carolina. The School of Art and School of Music are
among the largest and most recognized in the South-
east region. The School of Education is the largest in
the state and its Model Clinical Teaching Program re-
ceived best-in-the-nation recognition from three na-
tional education associations.
The Construction Management Program in the
School of Industry and Technology is the only accred-
ited program in North Carolina, and it is rated one of
the top programs in the nation. The School of Busi-
ness offers the only management accounting, bank-
ing and five-year public accounting degrees in the state.
The campus also boasts a state-of-the-art library and
student recreation center.
Keep in mind I have only mentioned a few of the
university's highlights and distinctions. This letter
would be four pages long if 1 listed them all.
If you are so sure that you were denied a world-
class education, maybe you should leave your residence
hall room and attend an ECU sporting event. There is
so much pride and school spirit coming from students
and alumni that you would think some people really
L (
do bleed purple. Not to mention there is greater atten
dance and enthusiasm coming out of Dowdy-Ficklen
Stadium on certain Saturdays in the fall than at some
professional sporting events across the country.
Education is not just a piece of paper or aif
institution's name on that piece of paper. It is what
you make of your time there.
During my years, I was a computer lab assistant on
campus, news director at WZMB, a member of Chi
Omega Sorority, a representative for SGA and senior
class vice president. In my spare time I did volunteer
work and I still graduated with honors. I did receive a
world-class education both inside and outside of the
classroom, and not at a cheap price such as your col-
umn suggests. I got the impression that you were com-
paring ECU to a community college. Being an out-of-
state student, it cost me almost $60,000 for my four
years here, and it was worth every penny.
As a matter of fact, I passed .up the opportunity to
take a job with a television station in Baltimore to stay
here and work for ECU. I travel across the state and up
and down the entire East Coast promoting the univer-
sity to prospective students.
According to your column, it seems as though you
are involved in certain aspects of campus such as the
Greek system and the newspaper staff. I'm sorry that
you don't find those things as fulfilling as I did.
If you think going to Duke is going to guarantee
you much success and a great life, you need to think
again. I am in the real world and so are my friends and
we can tell you that it's not where you went to school,
but what you learned while you were there that makes
you successful in the future.
Less than 25 percent of Americans hold a college
degree, so maybe the next time you start to whine and
complain about being denied a "world-class" educa-
tion, you should call your parents and thank them for
giving you the opportunity to receive a world-class
education right here at ECU.

The Hungry Little Caterpillar, But No Elephants and
Arthur's Nose are three of the hundreds of titles that fill
the shelves at Sheppard Memorial Children's Library.
When a child picks up one of these books and begins
to read, they are unaware that they will be far ahead of
their class scholastically because of their early expo-
sure to literature.
Children who have more exposure to literature at a
young age are more likely to succeed scholastically in
the future, according to the Nati'onal Board of Educa-
tion. Studies performed by the National Center for Edu-
cational Statistics show that reading ability is positively
correlated to the amount of recreational reading a child

does.
The studies
also reported
that the fre-
quency of
children's lit-
erature use is
high. In 1995,
more than 80
percent of chil-
dren aged 3-5
were told or
read a story in
the past
month.
Both
storytelling and
reading to chil-
dren help stimu-
late their imagi-
nation, hold their
attention and introduce them to the concept of a plijjt
and characters. p
"As the need for literacy develops, educators are
starting to realize the need to read or tell stories ti
children at a young age said Cari Lovins, assistant to
the director of library development at Joyner Librarjj
Both storytellers and librarians claim that expos-
ing children to stories and books has positive effects?
Donald Davis, master storyteller, came to speak t�
educators at ECU last week to emphasize the impor-
tant role that storytelling plays in developing a child�
interest in reading. According to Davis, storytelling $
a gateway for children to novels.
"They love the experience of hearing a big loi
story that's fun Davis said. "Once they really do th
and discover that big stories are great, that becomes
reading goal
According to Davis, a picture book can limit trie
imagination of both the teller and the listener.

When looking for things to do after the work day's
done, some people turn to the downtown scene for a
good time. What many fail to realize is that ECU offers
a wide variety of fine-arts events throughout the year,
giving students and the Greenville community a taste
of culture.

the roster of performers to bring that year
Clutter says that the committee helps bring in per-
formers with varied backgrounds and styles.
"Our committee is so diverse and they are so com-
mitted to their viewpoints he said. "Because of them,
we always have such a variety of performances in our
season
University Unions members waste no time in book-
ing their talent. According to Clutter, events are booked
between 12-18 months in advance.
"Once we select the performers for the season, we
find out when they go on tour Woodruff said. "Then
we compare their schedule to a master calendar just to
make sure we're not conflicting with any other event
on campus
And rest assured, they are always trying to bring in
the cream of the crop.
"The artists that we consider must have a proven
reputation, or a group that is up and coming; but that
is only when we know and trust the agents of the new
group Clutter said.
The School of Music will also bring in a selection of
performers to their own series entitled the School of
Music Guest Artist Series. According to Dr. Brad Foley,
dean of the school of music, the number of concerts
performed each year depends on the availability of the
performers.
Similar to the Performing Arts Series, the School of
Music has a special events committee made up of five
faculty members who suggest ideas for the series.
"We try to bring in a variety of things Foley said.
"This year we had a guitarist, a wood-wind quartet and
a string quartet
They also brought a group that performed with in-
struments from the Renaissance era. According to Foley,
it fit in well with
the courses offered
in the music his-
tory program.

Dear Marjorie,
My friend and I were debating today whether body
piercing is mutilation or a trend. She said that body
piercing is mutilation, and she thinks that it is a way
for people to vie for attention. I was really hurt be-
cause I have had a bellybutton ring since I was in high
school, and I did it because I think it looks cool and it
is a fashion thing. Do you think that my friend was
right in what she said about body piercing being a
call for attention?
�Pierced and Proud
Dear Pierced and Proud,
Only you can decide where the line lies between
mutilation and fashion. If she said that any type of
body piercing is mutilation, then most of society has
mutilated itself in one way or another. Have you ever
looked around and tried to find a girl over 8 who
doesn't have her ears pierced? Most college students,
regardless of their major or their future interests, have
at least one piercing. It is a fashionable thing right
now to sport a piercing. Once you enter into the real
world, the tounge and eyebrow rings usually have to
go, but concealables, like bellybutton rings and Prince
Albert's will not become a -subject of debate unless
you decide to whip it out and show your co-workers.
(In some cases, this would get you slapped with a
sexual harassment suit as well.) Piercing is a matter of
personal choice, and the extent to which you do It
can affect your future. The individual decides his or
her career in life; if body piercing won't Interfere, there
is no reason why they should suppress them.

Dear Marjorie,
I have a boyfriend, and we have been dating for
about two years. He is the man I want to marry, but
we are not engaged because we are waiting until we
graduate. I have this problem though. I still notice
attractive men in my classes. If a great looking guy
walks by and my boyfriend is not around, I will stare
until he has passed. (Not that this happens all that
often at ECU). Am I really in love with my boyfriend,
or do is it more just a wandering eye? I would never
want to hurt him by having an affair, but men are so
attractive, and I don't know if I can resist for the rest
of my life.
�Hungry Eyes
Dear Hungry Eyes,
You see attractive men and notice them because
you are alive. Even other men, although they won't
admit it, notice a really amazing guy. It's just the way
that it is. People are intrinsically sexual beings, and
we were created in specific ways to accommodate that
fact. Do you think that hips were designed only for
functional purposes? I think not. Just because you
notice the occasional attractive man, as long as you
don't ravish him on the spot, your relationship will
be fine. A strong relationship can endure occasional
wandering glances. Ask your boyfriend sometime. I
bet he notices attractive women constantly. Hope-
fully, the two of you will have a long life together,
free of fear or mistrust. Open honesty is the best way
to prevent any affair.

"When I tell you about a scene or an event and I
don't tell you anything, you have to build a picture in
your own imagination Davis said. "When you watch
somebody else's pictures, you don't have to imagine
and you can immediately forget them
Children benefit from storytelling in more concrete
ways than the development of their imagination; they
also learn invaluable language and thinking skills that
affect both their writing and speech.
"Their vocabulary grows because they are hearing
words used in a context that makes sense, and their
understanding of grammatical structure grows as well
Davis said.
Others agree that storytelling helps encourage
children's imaginations.
"Storytelling can stimulate children in their writ-
ing because they don't know where to begin said Pat
McGee, head of teaching resource center at ECU.
"Storytelling gives children the opportunity to use their
memories to begin writing
Storytelling is a way to bring children to the books,
according to Anne Sullivan, outreach librarian and
Phyllis Conner, children's librarian. In many programs
at Sheppard Memorial Library, the librarians utilize
storytelling to promote the children's interest in the
stories.
"We Ithe children's librarians usejstoryteJUng to
bring people to books SullivartsatSfwctuTre" books
do different things'for young listeners; It appeals to
both audio and visual senses when a picture book is
read, and it gives kids a different type of experience
Conner said that books and reading should play
an important role in everyone's life, but especially that
of a young child.
"Reading is the most important thing you can do
for your child to encourage future educational success
Conner said. "Reading picture books helps children
learn to associate written words with the story and
this encourages future literacy
Both telling stories and reading books with a child
are proven ways to encourage a child to develop vora-
cious reading habits, but, of course, there are no guar-
antees.

The ECU men's basketball team
faced a formidable opponent in Vir-
ginia Commonwealth University
after last week's road victory against
Old Dominion.
Wednesday in Norfolk, the Pi-
rates played Old Dominion, and
pulled off their first CAA road win
of the season with a Brandon
Hawkins three pointer with 1.9 sec-
onds remaining in the game.
Hawkins led the team with 15
points on the night, followed by
Neil Punt with 10. The team battled
back from being down by one at the
break to pull off a great road victory.
Following their first CAA road
win of the season, the men's bas-
ketball team was defeated by the
VCU Rams Saturday night.
The Pirates, lead by senior for-
ward Neil Punt, came out strong to
start the game. They had opened up
a seven-point lead five minutes in.
After their opening run, the
team traded buckets with the Rams
before building a 10 point lead on a
Steven Branch tirin, with 5.01 left
in the half. This would be the Pi-
rates' largest lead of the night. By
halftime the Rams had cut the lead
in half.
"The last five minutes of the first
half really hurt us said Head Coach
Bill Herrion "We also had some dis-
cipline problems
The second half began with the
Pirates struggling to score. Their
first field goal was a three pointer
made by Quincy Hall six minutes
into the second half. The Rams
managed to hold the Pirates to only
12 points in the first 13 minutes of
the second half.
"All the teams play the same
number of games, so that's not an
excuse Punt said.
"We weren't focusing on their
ECU'S second-half problems, just
our own confidence said Mack
McCarthy, VCU head coach.
The Pirates shot 32.8 percent for
the game. The team's magic num-
ber seems to be 50 percent. In their
nine wins prior to Wednesday
night's game against Old Dominion,
they averaged a shooting percent-
age of 49.7 percent. However, in
their losses they have a shooting
average of only 37.2 percent.
The troubled shooting, com-
bined with the play of the Rams'
Patrick Kodjoe (13 points) and
Shawn Hampton (12 points), culmi-
nated in a loss for the Pirates.
The Pirates were led by Neil Punt
(16 points) and Garrett Blackwelder
(12 points).

Freshman pitchers

The Pirates baseball team swept
the George Washington Colonials in
a three game series last weekend.
The Pirates were 3-0 victors in
the first game on Friday afternoon.
It took freshman Scott Greene just
81 pitches to dispose of the
Colonials. He struck out four,
walked zero and gave up just two
hits. He retired 13 batters in a row
at one point on his way to facing
just one more than the minimum.
The Pirates who moved to 4-1 on
the year with the win, got run sup-
port from Bryant Ward and Nick
Schnabel. Lee Delfino hit a solo
home run, the first for the Pirates
this season.
"We haven't been swinging the
bats well yet this season, but that's
something that will come with
time said Head Coach Keith
LeClair. "If we can just continue to
get our young pitchers to put the
ball in play and let the defense do
the work like today, we will be fine
Saturday the 23rd ranked Pirates
downed the Colonials 11-9 and
leading the way was junior Cliff
Godwin. Godwin went 3-4 with four
RBIs.
"This was one of those games
that in the early innings the wind
was blowing out and I thought it
would be a high scoring affair
LeClair said.
LeClair was right, for after the
second inning the Pirates lead 7-2.
Jeremy Schumacher went 6.0 in-
nings allowing only one base run-
ner in his final 3.0 innings en route
to his first collegiate victory.
Catcher Cliff Godwin jacked his
first home run of the season in the
fifth, and then in the seventh hit a
two run double. Adding to the Pi-
rates lead was Lee Delfino as he hit
his second home run in as many
days in the eighth inning.
The Pirates were up 11-5 but that
lead was in jeopardy in the
Colonials' ninth. They rallied for

man Davey Penny before Cory Scott

Molinari singled back up the
middle to end the game 4-3.

Pirates hopeful
against UNC-Charlotte
Ryan Downey
STAFF WRITER
The men's and women's tennis
teams split two matches this week-
end against Wingateand Campbell
in Buies Creek, after hosting Francis
Marion on Wednesday.
Against Francis Marion, the
men lost while the women were
able to pick up a win.
In the weekend's matches, both
the men's and women's squads fell
to Campbell and beat Wingate. The
win put the men's team at 4-4 on
the season.
"Against Campbell we had
some chances said Head Coach
Tom Morris. "But they are a qual-
ity team and we played as well as
we could. And against Wingate we
did what we needed to do. Basically
we played solid all day, just missed
some close opportunities
The win put the women at 4-2
on the season going into their next
match against UNC-Charlotte at
UNC-Charlotte (2-2), this Wednes-
day. The two teams have similar
records and similar rosters. Both
teams are comprised mainly of
freshmen and sophomores with the
notable exception of the Pirates' Asa
El I bring.
The two wins give the team a
little momentum going into this
Wednesday. Asa Ellbring was very
happy with the team's performance
against Francis Marion.
"It was a good win Ellbring
said. "Last year we played a close
match, but this year we beat them
5-1. Last year they had awesome
depth, but this year we were stron-
ger. We had more depth towards the
bottom of our roster
The win did a lot to help the
players' confidence and keep them
excited.
"It was just what we needed for
our confidence said team captain
Merideth Spears. "It was nice to beat
a team that was more on our level
The men, who lost to Francis
Marion 6-1, were just not able to get
anything going early on and never
quite caught up. The men were in
trouble after the doubles competi-
tion which put them in the hole
early.
"If you are ahead a point going
into the singles, you only have to
split the matches Morris said.
"But we go in losing the doubles,
and we have to win four out of six
in singles
fhe men, however, were able
to rebound after the two losses
and pull off a dominating 6-0 win
against Wingate. The men have
played more matches than UNC-
Charlotte because the weather has
not cooperated with the 49ers;
three of their matches have been
rained out. The 49er roster, which
nearly mirrors the Pirate roster, fea-
tures one senior on a team domi-
nated by sophomores and fresh-
men.
"The men are playing better and
better Morris said. "I feel good
about both matches, we are having
some problems at doubles, but we
will work on the combination's and
players as the season progresses. We
are playing a lot of matches and it's
good for us because we are improv-

The ECU Lady Pirates Softball
team kicked off the 2000 campaign
this past weekend in Raleigh for the
Triangle Classic Tournament.
The tournament marked the be-

many changes for the Lady Pirates.
The biggest difference this year for
the team is that they will leave the
Big South Conference and join the
Southern Atlantic Softball Confer-
ence.
Under Head Coach Tracy Kee, in
her fourth year at ECU, the Lady
Pirates have won two Big South
titles and set a school record with
50 wins last season. Kee was also
selected as Coach of the Year in
1997. Kee guided the Pirates to their
first ever NCAA Regional Tourna-
ment appearance, where as a sixth
seed, they lost to the No. 1 seed,
Arizona, 9-1 to end an impressive
season.
The Lady Pirates bring back most
of their talent, led by senior pitcher
Denise Reagan. Reagan went 36-10
last season on her way to earnjjijg

"Joining the ACC is a huge step
for us Kee said. "Whenever you
can join a conference that finished
fourth in RPI the season before, its
amazing
A main concern for the Lady Pi-
rates was the lack of a pitching staff
last season. Kee broughj in two
freshman pitchers, Laurie Davidson
and Hillary Halpern to provide
some support.
"This year we wanted a pitching
'staff to help out Lisa Paganini and
Denise Reagan Kee said. "It's very
different from past years to have a
solid rotation
Last season, under the com-
mand of record-setting ECU pitcher
and current assistant coach, Jenny
Parsons, the Pirate pitchers com-
bined for school records with 226
strikeouts and a 50-win season.
They also led the Big South in shut-
puts with 20, and 411 innings
pitched.
"Parsons) taught me everything
about pitching�not so much the
fundamentals, but a variety of
pitches and when to use them
Reagan said.
The Lady Pirates lost three play-
ers to graduation at the end of last
season�Isonette Polonius, Amy
Hooks and Sara Colea.
"As talented as they were, it's
tough Kee said. "Polonius alone
helped move this program to a
higher level
Polonius was a three-time win-
ner of the Big South Student Ath-
lete of the Year award, and twice se-
lected as the Big South Player of the
Year in 1998 and 1999. She moved
on to the next level by being se-
lected as the first overall pick in the
Professional Softball League in De-
cember.
Coach Kee brought in three
other freshman to help fill the gapi.
"We will rely on the seniors tb
lead the way, but Reagan is our work
horse Kee said. "She is very corn-
posed and never loses it. We wHI
look to her to set our tone this year.1"
The Lady Pirates started the sea-
son 4-0 before falling to UNC on
Sunday 5-0. They finished tied for
third in the Triangle Classic. The Tar
Heels improved to a perfect 10-0.
"Overall for the weekend, we
were extremely pleased with the
way things developed Kee said.
"We went 4-1 against a really com-
petitive field at this tournament
which was good to see so early in
the year. We really got out of the
gate quick against Alabama and set
the tone for the weekend
Alabama had entered the tour-
nament ranked 30th. Freshman
Hillary Halpern pitched a complete '
game for the Lady Pirates, striking
out seven.
The Lady Pirates' first home
game series is scheduled for Feb. 25-
27, as they host the Pirate Classic
Tournament. They will face Man-
hattan, George Mason, La Salle arjd
Delaware with a single elimination �
tournament on Sunday.

Jakob the Liar (PG-13)
Sot in Nazi-occupied Poland during WWII, the story tells of Jakob, a
Polish Jew who accidentally overhears a forbidden radio news bulletin
signaling Soviet military successes against German forces. To combat
the the overwhelming depression that pervades the ghetto, Jakob
pretends to have a two way radio and begins to recount fictitious news
bulletins about Allied advances against the Nazis to keep humor alive
among the ghetto inhabitants.
The Bachelor (PG-13)
Jimmie (Chris O'Donnell) is seeing his single friends get married one
by une. He isn't too worried until his girlfriend Anne (Renee Zellweger)
catches the bouquet at his friend Marco's wedding. Suddenly, his wild
mustang days are numbered. He finally decides to propose to her, but
he sticks his foot in his mouth and botches the proposal. Being insulted
by the defeatist proposal, Anne leaves town on an assignment. After
she's gone, he finds out that his recently-deceased grandfather's will
stipulates that he gets nothing of a multi-million dollar fortune unless
he's married by 6:05 pm on his 30th birthday: tomorrow! Not being
able to find Anne, Jimmie begin's backtracking through his past
girlfriends to find a wife.
