Discrimination meetings continue
Discussion focuses
on solving problem
Terra Steinbeiser
NEWS EDITOR
Earlier this month students,
university and city officials met
once again to discuss reported
incidents of racism against mi-
norities in Greenville's down-
town club area.
The meeting, which is the
third one of its kind since the
beginning of the semester, is part
of a continuing effort to bring
attention to and end the alleged
discrimination of minority stu-
dents by club owners.
Dr. Garrie Moore, vice chan-
cellor of Student Life, planned
the meeting with the aid of stu-
dents in response to continued
reports of discrimination.
Attending the conference was
Moore, Ron Kimble, the
Greenville city manager, Na'im
Akbar, chair of the Minority Stu-
dent Coalition, and five ECU stu-
dents. The bar owners and their
attorneys were invited to attend,
but did not.
The absence of the club own-
ers was interpreted differently by
those present at the meeting.
"The bar owners didn't ap-
pear at the meeting, but they had
informed us that they had pos-
sible scheduling conflicts,
Kimble said. "It wasn't as if they
stood us up
Akbar said he felt that their
lack of presence was a personal
affront to the purpose of the
meeting.
"I really felt that the lack of
representation was a slap in the
face Akbar said. "It demon-
strated a total lack of respect for
the issue
The bulk of the discussion at
the meeting centered around
specific incidents of minority
students being turned away at
downtown clubs.
"We reiterated our concerns
to the city manager and the fact
that we need to continue our ef-
forts to end these happenings
Moore said.
The group also put into ac-
tion some new initiatives that
they hope will help stop the
problem. In addition to asking
bar owners to post their rules
and dress code in a visible place
outside the club,which they
have since done, it was decided
that all reports of discrimination �
should be submitted in writing
to the owners and their attor-
neys.
Akbar said that the students
would have to take on a new and
more serious plan of action to
combat the unfair practices of
some clubs.
"We're going to bring media
attention to the problem and
we're planning to get the
Greenville Human Relations
Committee involved because this
is an issue that has been going
on all semester Akbar said. "The
clubs make too much money off
ECU students for any students to
be turned away
No club owners were able to
be contacted for comment.

The ASCI is an organization made up of representa-
tives from each of the 16 public institutions of higher
education in the UNC system who work together to
create a single, multi-campus, student government as-
sociation.
According to the Association's constitution, mem-
bers of the ASG work to promote and enable communi-
cation between students and the President of the UNC
System, the N.C. General Assembly, the Board of Gov-
ernors and the Governor of the state, as well as between
the different campuses within the system.
The issue of campus expansion and improvement
was one of the first topics of discussion during this
meeting. In his report to the body, ASG President Jeff
Nieman gave an update on the progress of the Joint
Select Committee on Higher Education Facilities Needs.
The Legislative Committee�made up primarily of
members of the General Assembly�is in the process of
traveling across the state to examine the building con-
ditions and needs of universities and community col-

MP3 use slows RezNet connections to dragging pace
Sound files use too
much bandwidth
Josette LaChance
STAFF WRITER
Hue to extensive MP3 use by
students on campus, Internet
connection and services have
become slower at ECU.
MP3 is a file format. These
compressed audio files are down-
loaded off the Internet primarily
in the form of songs and movie
clips. MP3s are especially appeal-
ing because they are relatively
small and have a very high sound
quality.
Approximately three minutes
of music in MP3 format requires
about three megabytes of disk
space. The same song recorded in
WAV format, which is another
common sound file format,
could be as large as SO megabytes.
According to Robert Hudson,
director of Information, Technol-
ogy and Computing Services
(ITCS) at ECU, students who live
on campus may have noticed
that their Internet connections
have become increasingly slower.
This is because of the large num-
ber of students downloading
I
MP3s by their computers.
"MP3s use a lot more band-
width than surfing the net, read-
ing e-mail or any other basic
Internet services do, " Hudson
said.
Bandwidth is the speed con-
nection to computers. The cur-
rent bandwidth at ECU is 1SS
megabytes per second. Each cam-
pus residence hall room is
equipped with two 5200-speed
Ethernet connections, which all
relay back to the university back-
bone, or main Internet connec-
tion.
"Students can easily go to
Web sites such as MP3.com and
Napster.com to download
MP3s Hudson said. "If a stu-
dent doesn't know what he or
she is doing, then his or her
machine can become a server for
others to use.
"When this happens, anyone
can download MP3s off the
student's computer and play
songs from it, thus using a lot of
bandwidth
According to Joe Norris, a
manager at ITCS, there is no way
to download MP3s without us-
ing a lot of bandwidth.
ITCS is in the process of find-
ing ways to increase the connec-
tion speed on campus.
Hudson said experts at ITCS
are in the process of upgrading
the campus backbone system to
180 megabytes per second by the
beginning of the fall semester.
This process was started earlier
this month when part of the old
system was replaced with a state-
of-the-art Cisco Gigabit.
Plans have also been made to
make students aware of the prob-
lems associated with download-
ing such sound files.
"We are running an educa-
tion program to educate students
about the problems that MP3s

ACROSS OTHER CAMPUSES
Duke University-While the proponents of the to-
bacco industry are reoicing, anti-tobacco organizations
are regrouping in the wake of Tuesday's U.S. Supreme
Court ruling that the Food and Drug Administration
does not have the authority to regulate tobacco as an
addictive drug. Many North Carolinians expressed re-
lief at the good news for the state's top cash crop.
"Tobacco is a way of life for the people in North
Carolina said Dean Rouse, chair of the Kinston-based
organization. Friends of Tobacco. "Without it, our
people have no way ot making a livelihood
Rouse explained that he saw the FDA's interference
in the tobacco industry as a threat to the well-being of
the citizens of North Carolina.
"That's how we make our living by growing a
legal product Rouse said. "The FDA would be putting
our people out of work
Members of anti-tobacco groups, however, vehe-
mently disagreed with the ruling.
"I hate to be pessimistic, but this definitely was a
disappointment for us said Tim Filler, program man-
ager of America for Nonsmokers' Rights. "They won
this stage of the battle on the war against smoking
Across the state, tobacco proponents were pleased that
the industry was receiving a brief respite from increased
regulations.
"This is welcomed news for the tobacco industry at
a time when it seems everyone in the world has turned
against this legal crop said Jim Graham, N.C. Depart-
ment of Agriculture commissioner, in a recent state-
ment.
In Tuesday's 5-4 ruling, the court said the FDA
reached beyond its delegated authority in its attempts
to regulate cigarettes and smokeless tobacco.
The FDA stepped up efforts against tobacco in 1997
after U.S. District Judge William Osteen ruled that the
agency could regulate nicotine as a drug.
In 1998 the tobacco industry sued, and a federal
appeals court in Virginia ruled that Congress had not
granted the FDA the authority to regulate tobacco.
Tuesday's ruling by the Supreme Court upheld the dis-
trict court's ruling. Rep. Howard Coble, R-N.C, ex-
pressed his surprise that the ruling was 5-4 because of
what he considered to be the clarity of the law.
"Just looking at the facts, it appears obvious to me
that the FDA should not be regulating tobacco Coble
said. "If you gave the FDA the power to label cigarettes
as 'medical devices that could lead to the banning of
cigarettes
Coble said the president's allocation of the regula-
tory authority to the FDA was outside the executive
branch's power. Instead, Congress traditionally dictates
this type of jurisdiction.
Villanova University-The staff of the Conserva-
tive Column (CC) added to their troubles with the uni-
versity last week when their column was confiscated
after what appeared to be an apparent misunderstand-
ing between administration and the CC.
Hours after the March 15 edition was distributed,
Tom Mogan, director of Student Development, col-
lected all of the copies.
News rapidly spread, and articles appeared in "The
Philadelphia Inquirer "The Daily Texan" and other
syndicated collegiate newspaper organizations.
According to Mogan, the CC initially operated un-
der the College Republicans. However, this semester it
began operating as its own organization.
"Like any other organization who wants to apply
for recognition from the university, they filled out a
petition Mogan said.
On this petition, members of the CC indicated that
they would find an advisor. When this failed to occur,
a meeting that included Mogan, Dr. Colleen Sheehan,
advisor of the College Republicans, Kathy Byrnes, as-
sistant vice-president of Student Life, and members of
the CC staff was held, and it was discussed and agreed
upon that an advisor had to be found before the re-
lease of the next issue.
Word never came from the CC about who their
advisor would be. Lllik was contacted last week by
Mogan who was told that the CC was in the process of
finding an advisor and when they did, they would meet.
On Tuesday, the day before the issue came out,
Mogan insisted that the CC find an advisor and asked
when the next issue was coming out.
"Lilik indicated he was not sure I said that 'you
aren't a recognized student group, and therefore, you
can't distribute materials on campus Mogan said.
Mogan acknowledged that Lilik had some concerns
about this, but never indicated that advisement would
be a problem.
"The issue came out Wednesday Mogan said. "We
had asked them not to distribute it until the issue was
resolved
A student presented the March 15 issue to Mogan,
and he decided that all 2,000 copies of the CC would
be collected and held until their recognition status was
resolved. However, the CC was still available to stu-
dents on the university-sponsored Web site.
Lilik, who describes himself as, "Catholic, conser-
vative, pro-life, pro-gun and proud of it contends that
the issue was pulled due to its content, specifically be-
cause of the a fake advertisement displaying a picture
of an aborted fetus with the caption, "First Union Bank:

Mayor wants immigrants to load courts
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP)-The
mayor of Agua Prieta, Mexico, is
launching a campaign intended
to overload U.S. courts and im-
migration detention facilities.
Mayor Vicente Teran Uribe
said he will use newspapers, the
radio and flyers to inform people
intending to cross illegally into
the United States that if they're
caught they can avoid immedi-
ate return to Mexico by request-
ing a hearing before a U.S. immi-
gration judge.
Teran said he wants to give
U.S. officials a taste of the prob-
lems his border community has
had to deal with for the past three
years as illegal immigration has
been shifting toward the Arizona-
Mexico border.
"We're going to be informing
the immigrants on the radio, in the
newspapers, with fliers, anyway that
we can that they have a right to an
immigration hearing. If they end up
with 50,000 or 60,000 people ask-
ing for a hearing, how do you think
they'll manage that?" Teran was
quoted as saying in today's Arizona
Daily Star.
If even a tiny fraction of the
1,000 or more illegal immigrants
detained each day by Border Patrol
agents based in Douglas ask for a
hearing, it could clog the U.S. im-
migration system, Teran said.
Sharon Gavin, a spokeswoman
for the Immigration and Natural-
ization Service, said the mayor's
campaign won't be telling immi-
grants anything they don't al-
ready hear from Border Patrol
agents as they're being processed '
for voluntary return to Mexico. "
In the last two years alone, 2
million people have moved
through Agua Prieta, which bor-
ders Douglas, he said. Tighter '
enforcement has also meant'
more people have found them-
selves stuck in the city.
Teran said the result has been
more crime and an increase in
other problems, such as drug '
abuse.

Icommittee members will be well armed to go back
to the rest of the legislature and outline the true needs
of our system Nieman said.
After the president's report, ASG delegates sectioned
off into four committees (Academic Affairs, Legislative
Affairs, Human Relations and Student Affairs) to dis-
cuss other system specific issues. The body reconvened
after about an hour of discussion to give committee
reports and to vote on proposed legislation.
The Academic Affairs Committee, led by Catherine
Allen of Appalachian State University, presented a reso-
lution to the body concerning the on-line academic
advisement of students.
"Due to the future influx of students to the system
and because on-line advising facilitates the needs of
distance learners, the Academic Affairs Committee pro-
poses that the ASG support and promote the imple-
mentation of on-line advising Allen said, reading from
the proposal.
The resolution was passed by a vote of consensus.
The committee also announced that an Advising Sym-
posium was in the works in an effort to improve the
quality of advisors across the state.
No other committees presented legislation to be
voted on at that time, although there were other top-
ics brought up for discussion. The Legislative Affairs
Committee discussed the idea of a Legislation Day,
which would provide an opportunity for members of
the ASG to meet with and discuss pertinent issues with
members of the General Assembly. Nieman called the
action an excellent initiative.
The final portion of the meeting was designated for
official nominations for the president and senior vice-
president of the ASG for the 2000-01 school year. In
ASG elections, the president and senior vice-president
run together on one ticket. Cliff Webster, the current
president of the student body at ECU and Liz Gardner,
of UNC-CH, who presently serves as the Executive A
sistant to the ASG President were nominated to run
on a ticket for president and senior vice-president, re-
spectively. Andrew Payne and Seth Whitaker, both
of NCSU, will run on the other ticket. Payne is the trea-
surer for both the NCSU student body and the ASG.
Whitaker currently serves as the Student Senate Presi-
dent. The elections v.ill take place at Western Carolina
University during the final ASG meeting of the year on
April IS.

For every single downtown
venue to ignore the invitation
is a blatant disrespect to the
community from which they
draw funds. Whether the
allegations are true or not,
they have an obligation to at
least get this out in the open
0URVIEW
Earlier in the semester, TEC ran an article on the alleged exclu-
sion of non-white students from various downtown clubs. The situ-
ation has developed, and in an effort to solve the problem, the
club owners were invited to participate in a meeting to discuss
possible approaches. Not one showed up.
We think this is a foolish move on the part of the owners. Sched-
uling conflicts, whatever they may be, are no excuse for not send-
ing at least one person to discuss such an important issue. Is it
that they just don't care, or do they really not think this is a prob-
lem?
For every single downtown venue to ignore the invitation is a
blatant disrespect to the community from which they draw funds.
Whether the allegations are true or not, they have an obligation to
at least get this out in the open.
Maybe the owners don't care because they know they don't
have to. If they ignore the situation, people will continue to go to
their clubs, drink their beer and give them money. Eventually the
problem will probably go away.
Then again, it may not. That's why the owners should be paying
attention. If showing respect to the community they serve isn't
enough reason to talk to the committee about the issue, perhaps
they should be interested in heading off the bad press.

OPINION COLUMN
Support homes threatened by development
OPINION COLUMN
ECU administrators make decisions for themselves
Stephen Kleinschmit
OPINION COLUMNIST
ECU administration pulled another fast one
on the students of ECU last week. Listen up
sophomores: next year, you will be unable to
buy Commuter stickers for your car. This is the
solution ECU has come up with to solve the prob-
lem of parking. Also, rates are on the increase,
as usual, so that now they have to provide even
less service for more money.
Fellow students, this is injustice. If ECU wants
to increase its enrollment, it will have to begin
making more sound decisions than this. The City
of Greenville only has so much off-campus park-
ing. Much of this is already taken up during the
day, so if ECU is not going to build additional
parking lots for commuters, then it should not
be trying to expand with such an aggressive
growth strategy. How will ECU increase by 8,000
�i it doesn't even want to build new parking? 1
don't even think we have enough apartments in
Greenville to house another 8,000.
One problem with expansion is that when you
expand the university, you must also expand the
infrastructure that will support it. Lately, the
university has been tearing up parking spaces
and the sophomore class is taking it up the back-
side. I have always wondered why they called it
Parking and Traffic Services. They provide no ser-
vice to the students that I have ever seen.
But don't be mad at your student government.
1 know they did the best they could to try to stop
this. But faculty outweighs the student vote on
these matters. That's why it seems that everything
that we want never happens. The laxative Aramark
dining hall "food Killing the Pepsi contracts.
Revamping Parking and Traffic. Moderating tuition
increases. Keeping Dr. Ronald Speier as the dean
of students. These are all examples of things we
have been fighting for, but were overturned by
the faculty or the Board of Trustees.
The fact remains that the university is not in
the interest of serving the students, but their own
interests. Before more of our tuition money goes
into the greens fees at the local country clubs, we
need to take a stand. If student legislators are go-
ing to be given the duty of operating a govern-
ment tasked with making decisions for the stu-
dent body why shouldn't their decisions be hon-
ored?

Neighborhood demolition is just plain wrong
Eminent domain. What a freakin' wonderful
concept. What this means is that big over-stuffed
pockets which run big over-stuffed businesses
can take over what is near them and just knock
them out of the way with no legal repercussions.
It is like the bully who stole your chocolate milk
in elementary school getting an award for kick-
ing your ass. It is just plain stupid with sugar on
top.
ECU is playing the role of the milk-stealing
bully by trying to literally bulldoze the entire
neighborhood between 5th and 10th streets up
to Elm Street. Dozens of homes are facing raz-
ing by the good ole' big brother called ECU Ad-
ministration.
Urn, why? Most of the people who live in this
neighborhood are adults with families, profes-
sors and retired people just looking for a good
spot to spend the rest of their lives in peace.
ECU doesn't want to let this happen. They want
to gobble up all the land they can for their
bloated expansion plans so they can feel good
about having "X" amount of students. Bullspit.
The administration ignores current students,
while packing their pockets with our money. We
have to eat food that tastes like chalk and we
have to park in Winterville.
The neighborhood has organized to fight this
injustice and they need help. The student body
needs to stand up in support of these people.
Many of them are alumni and are the elders of
our Greenville community. They are having their
homes destroyed after years of supporting the
school. Their loyalty is being thrown in their face
by ECU, but the school has its eyes dead set on
the area and is doing whatever they can to get
the land. They have the eminent domain and the
neighborhood doesn't. What a shame.
What is going to happen to the people who
live there? Are they expected to just up and move
after spending their entire lives in that same spot?
Are they supposed to just pack up the memories
of their kids playing in the front yard?
A home is much more than a dollar sign on
the real estate sheet that shows its market value.
It is not just a house. It is a home with priceless
memories and qualities. Just like the urban sprawl
which has devoured countless communities in our
nation, ECU is trying to devour that area's his-
tory. What would you rather have, a parking lot
or a community? A nice quiet college town or a
loud and obnoxious city that just so happens to
house a university. ECU's need for greed is just
appalling. It saddens me to think that the school
I hold so dearly in my heart is taking a blind eye
to these people's lives.
To the neighborhood facing destruction: E-mail
me with whatever I can do to help your cause. I
know people who would like to help as well. You
have my full support. The student body needs to
stand up as well and halt this miscarriage of jus-
tice. We haven't stood up for anything else that
has hurt this community, so we might as well start
now. As the song goes: Oops, there goes another
neighborhood.

My name is Miccah, and I am drowning in a
sea of girly crap. Please do not attempt to sell
me any more hair clips, glitter gel, herbal ex-
tracts, eye shadow, zit cream, push-up bras, fish-
ing line necklaces, pocketbooks, sporty acces-
sories, tube tops, fake nails, earrings, tiny stick-
ers, revolutionary shaving gel, liquid blush,
blush in a stick, pressed powder blush or any
other kinds of blush, specifically.
I have enough, and I don't even know where
any of it is. I also happen to know that none of
my female friends use any of their impulse pur-
chases. If you are uninformed about impulse
purchases, see the above list.
I name stores such as Claire's and After-
thoughts as primary offenders in a post-indus-
trial campaign to distract all female Americans
from the true meaning of life by dangling bright-
y colored objects in front of us until we cannot
resist purchasing them.
Retail companies play on our instincts to
hoard any items, no matter how trite, as long as
they are being pawed over by other females or
are auspiciously adorned with a red "clearance"
sticker.
Well, I don't know about you, but I'm sick of
being toyed with! The implication that I'll buy
anything, anytime, just because I can is demean-
ing and undermines my sense of self-actualiza-
tion through non-material means.
Next time you're tempted to buy something
you weren't really shopping for, take time to sit
down and reflect on the item. I've written down
five questions you should ask yourself to help
with your decision.
1) Do I really need this jumbo NSYNC pencil,
which will probably bring me negative attention
in class and is not compatible with most conven-
tional pencil sharpeners?
2) At what point(s) in time do I plan to use
this jumbo NSYNC pencil?
3) Should I be spending this money on, say,
food, instead?
4) Who thought up this overpriced piece of
crap?
5) Why, why, why?
A logical thought progression will lead you to
the conclusion that you should just walk away
from the item and not look back, unless it was
over 25 percent off. In that case, run back into
the store and snatch it up before that skinny
wench does!

Howdy everybody! I trust you had a great
Spring Break, but then again, I am a pretty trust-
ing guy. I've talked to many people who went to
the Bahamas, went to parties with the same
people you party with at ECU, waddled home in
a drunken stupor, woke up the next day floating
on a garbage barge en route to Amsterdam with
a three-legged hooker named Mama Rosa who
doesn't take American Express. Still, others opted
to go to Myrtle Beach, where the sun, sand, and
the off chance of syringes implanting into your
heel while swimming are an everyday occur-
rence. And still, some of you, including yours
truly, took their inner child in hand and jetted
off to the happiest place on earth Tijuana.
No really, I went down to Florida to see that
giant mouse in Orlando. My girlfriend and I
drove all the way there with her roommate and
another couple. It was one of the greatest trips
I've ever been on. In fact, there are only a few
things I can complain about regarding Disney,
but we'll save that for later.
Let's start with the good stuff. Disney World
has the cleanest bathrooms I have ever come
across. You could actually eat off the floor, if
you so wanted. Also, there are people walking
around all day whose only job is to pick up trash
and wear a funny hat. But, the most amazing
thing, to me anyway, is that there is a whole other
world under the theme parks, full of roads, cos-
tume closets, dressing rooms and more. This is
probably where they keep the dirty bathrooms
But the most bizarre thing about it (check this
out for yourself next time you're there) is that
the, trash cans are bottomless. When you de-
posit the wrapper from your S5 Mickey Mouse
ice cream bar, it is sucked down a tube where it
travels for 20 miles only to wind up at, you
guessed it, the ECU campus.
Now for the bad stuff. There's a real problem
at the Magic Kingdom, a little something I like to
call the "stroller menace There are thousands
of them, and they're all very, very aggressive.
Here's a quick note to guilty parents, and you
know who you are. If you have a child that isn't
old enough to walk or is quite capable of alking
but is just a lazy turd, leave them at home. You
are not going to have a good time, and they won't
either. Seriously, I saw a couple with two infants
in strollers. Now, why even bother. What do they
do when they get to tW end of the line at Space
Mountain? Do they go up to the ride operator and
say, "Can you hold our children while we go have
fun?" Yes, strollers are evil.
The most disturbing part of Disney World is
that the people dressed up as characters are at
every single park. In other words, how are you
going to teach a child that already thinks the world
revolves around them otherwise when it seems
like Pooh Bear is following them around from park
to park? What's worse is Epcot Center, which fea-
tures little areas that showcase cultures from 12
different countries, so a child can see the same
character in a different costume 20 feet apart.
Creepy.
All in all, I had a really great time. Disney is so
choice. If you have the means, I definitely recom-
mend checking it out. Oh, and if vou do end up
going anytime soon, be sure to tell Goofy I said
hello both of them.

Super Hero Origins
Superman
On the doomed planet Krypton, scientist
Jor-EI had his unborn son Kal-EI (still within his
birthing matrix) placed on a hyperlight drive
rocket. With
his wife Lara,
Jor-EI
' watched the
ship depart �
as a nuclear
chain reac-
tion de-
stroyed the
planet Krypton. Jor-EI targeted his son's rocket
to reach planet Earth, where he hoped his son
would find a good life.
Superman was in fact bom on Earth. The
tiny rocket was found by a Kansas farming
couple, Jonathan and Martha Kent. They found
the infant within the rocket and, being child-
' less, Martha persuaded Jonathan that they
should adopt him. Named Clark Kent, the child
grew up in Smallville, Kansas, never knowing
how his parents found him. The Kents began
. realizing Clark's special abilities at age 8 when
he was unhurt after being trampled by a bull.
As Clark grew older, his Kryptonian body be-
gan developing superhuman abilities. Among
' them are the ability to fly, heat vision, super
hearing, x-ray vision, and many others.
One year, after Clark used his abilities to
. excel in a football game, Jonathan Kent re-
, vealed the remains of the rocket and how his
adoptive parents had found him. Clark now un-
derstood his special powers came with respon-
sibilities. That night. Clark revealed his secret
- to his closest friend, Lana Lang. He also told
her he would be leaving Smallville the follow-
ing day. Thus at age 18, Clark Kent began to
-travel around the world to learn about his pow-
ers, become better educated, and secretly
help people.
Seven years after leaving Smallville, Clark
' arrived at Metropolis where he witnessed an
experimental NASA space plane about to
crash. He saved the plane and there first met
Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane. It was Lois'
newspaper account of the rescue that gave
Clark the super hero name of Superman. Al-
though Clark managed to hide his identity dur-
ing that incident, he realized he must adopt a
super hero identity if he was to continue a pub-
lic career of super heroics.
With his parents' help Clark developed a
super hero costume with a distinctive chest
emblem. He also practiced mannerisms and
began wearing glasses to distinguish Clark
Kent's appearance from that of Superman.
Wonder Woman
William Moulton Marston was an educa-
tional consultant in 1940 for Detective Comics,
lnc.(now better known
as DC Comics).
Marston saw that the
DC line, was filled with
images of super men
such as Green Lantern,
Batman, and their flag-
ship character, Super-
man. Seeina all these
male heroes, Marston
was left wondering why
there was not a femgle
hero.
Max Gaines, then head of DC Comics, was
intrigued by the concept and told Marston that
he could create a female comic book hero - a
"Wonder Woman Marston did that, using a
pen name that combined his own middle name
with the middle name of Gaines: Charles
Moulton.
Marston was the creator of the systolic
blood-pressure test, which lead to the creation
of the polygraph(lie detector). Because of his
discovery, Marston was convinced that women
were more honest and reliable than men and
could work faster and more accurately. During
his life time, Marston championed the causes
of women.
In a 1943 issue of "The American Scholar
Marston said: "Not even girls want to be girls
so long as our feminine archetype lacks force,
strength, and power, Not wanting to be girls,
they don't want to be tender, submissive,
peace-loving as good women are. Women's
strong qualities have become despised be-
cause of their weakness. The obvious remedy
is to create a feminine character with all the
strength of Superman plus all the allure of a
good and beautifurwoman
In December 1941, Marston's 'good and
;beautiful woman' made her debut in "All Star
�Comics 8 Following this exposure in what
was the second largest selling comic in DCs
line, Wonder Woman appeared in her own
berth in "Sensation Comics 1" (January
1942), and six months later in her own self-
titled book (Summer 1942).

for the past 10-15 years, and it is still not completely

who bow to the creative muses.
Michael Dorsey, dean of the school of art, main-

than a moment of

that can be inspired
by singing the

a process that we are constantly working with, and
it is only more apparent in the
moment when art is created.

ASK MARJ0RIE
Dear Marjorie,
Lately my boyfriend has been
having problems with his school
work. It's not that he can't do it,
it's just that he is not interested in
going to class. Every morning he
has some reason why he can't go,
and then he goes out to lunch dur-
ing his afternoon classes. He's not
a senior, so he really can't afford to
be endangering his GPA. Also, it
makes me so mad that I come home
and do hours of homework and he
does nothing. He always wants me
to skip class with him, and it is be-
ginning to wear on my nerves. 1
want to have a future, but all he
wants to do is goof off and waste
his parent's money. What can I do
to help him?
-Distressed by Ditching
Dear Distressed by Ditching,
I think that you are taking your
boyfriend's academic situation a
little too seriously. Unless you are
planning on marrying him, why
does it really matter if his life is slid-
ing downhill fast? It is his decision
to skip class and fail, and there is
really nothing that you can do
about it. If you are planning on
marrying him and you are worried
because his academic success now
will determine his earning potential
in the future, seriously reconsider
your decision. If he can't get his butt
out of bed to go to three or four
classes a day, do you really think
that he will be able to hold a full-
time job or support a family? Con-
sider this time as a period to get to
know him and his true work ethic.
If he can't get it together
now, he is not going to magically
morph into someone who has a clue
in the future. If you want to be suc-
cessful, you would probably be bet-
ter off looking for someone new.
Dear Marjorie,
1 am dating this guy, and all of
my friends say that he isn't good
enough for me. I really love him,
but he has been having some prob-
lems lately with the law and in
school. I don't think that he is a bad
person because of his situation, but
my friend said that if he is like this
now, he is not going to change for
the rest of his life.
Also, I long for academic conver-
sations and long walks just talking,
but he is more the kind of guy who
you take downtown fun night with
alcohol. He has always treated me
really well, and I would hate to lose
a good man for the wrong reasons,
but I don't know what to do.
-Too Good?
Dear Too Good,
Do you really see yourself with
this guy in the future? It sounds as
if you have a good thing for now
and you want to keep it going. But,
you shouldn't limit yourself to a
downtown guy for the rest of your
life. In 10 years, you are probably
not going to need a downtown guy
anymore, but rather those conver-
sations and walks. If he can't offer
you the things that are important
and lasting, why are you still with
him? Also, potential in this one
seems to be small. If I were you, I
would cut loose while I was still
young and beautiful and look for
someone who could satisfy all my
needs, not just the superficial ones.
If you have issues that you need
someone else to ponder or questions
that could be answered with a little

should have, and I knew better Raney said. "The first
day I used a lot of sunscreen, but then it just became a
hassle and so I went without
There are many factors why a vacation farther south
can be so damaging. Forgetting to use sunscreen is the .
first problem. Since Cancun, the Bahamas and even
Key West lie at latitudes closer to the equator, the sun
is more directly overhead for a longer period of time. ,
Dr. William Burke, section head of dermatology at '
the Student Health Center said these are factors he hears
often when giving advice on the treatment of sunburn.
"We don't see a lot of cases walk into the clinic, .
since most students don't feel the burn until night-
time, so we give them help over the phone Burke .
said. ,
There are several ways Burke says, to avoid a burn
in the first place. The most obvious way is to stay out
of the sun as much as possible and to use sunscreens
when venturing out, he recommends a sun protection
factor (SPF) of 15.
"Students should also avoid exposure between'
about 10 in the morning until two in the afternoon ,
since the sun is more overhead at these times Burke
said.
Additionally, some medications can increase the ,
skin's sensitivity to burning. Certain drugs for acne and'
those prescribed for psychiatric treatment can increase
your risk.
If you do get a bad burn, Dr. Burke recommends
using Sarna lotion to treat it. The mixture of menthol ,
and camphor in Sarna creates a cooling effect to make.
the burn more comfortable while it treats the skin.�
Other well-known treatments like SolarCaine are not"
recommended as they tend to numb the skin and even-
tually provide no relief.
"You need to realize that a sunburn is just like a
scald type burn you may get from touching a hot iron

REVIEW
Audience falls through
plot holes in "Mission to Mars"
Susan Wright
FEATURES EDITOR
The movie begins at a picnic set in the future,
and five minutes later, the entire crew is on their
mission to Mars. If this
sounds random to you,
that's because it is.
Throughout the en-
tire movie, Mission
to Mars lost audi-
ence members to
the gaping holes
in the story line
From the
many pre-
views, one is
led to be-
lieve that the movie will be an interesting rendi-
tion of the initial explorations of Mars and the ori-
gin of human life. The previews gave only a glimpse
of the movie, or so many viewers thought. After
the movie, it is apparent that the entire film gave
only glimpses of the plot.
If a film company is going to set a movie in the
near future, shouldn't they reveal a few more of
the telling details of the progress of the human
race than one ugly car and beer served in cartons?
Space suits apparently haven't changed in 20 years
and everybody still eats m&ms. The space ships
were designed with some new and interesting
twists, and the gravity-free life was the most inter-
esting 10 minutes of the whole movie.
There was a little drama, and the characters
were lovable, but the movie never pulled the audi-
ence all the way in. Throughout the movie, there
was always room for more detail, more character-
ization and more life in this film about the origin
of life.
Good money, especially the exorbitant $6.75
if you go in Greenville, should not be spent on
this movie. This overinflated flick was not worth
the money spent on the popcorn.

Nat 'King7 Cole: rediscovering a jazz legend
NEW YORK (AP)-When a new king, Elvis Presley,
dethroned him from the top of the pop charts, Nat
"King" Cole didn't become bitter or try to turn him-
self into something he wasn't.
In a nod to the changing fashions, he simply added
the satirical "Mr. Cole Won't Rock and Roll" to his
nightclub act in the late 1950s.
That's why Carol Cole admits she was surprised
when she heard her father would be among the in-
ductees Monday to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
"My initial reaction was that I was somewhat
shocked, but that was before I understood that
he was being inducted as an early influ-
ence, and then it made a lot of
sense said Cole, who
administers her
father's es-
tate.
"It obvi-
ously relates to
his trio days
The Hall of
Fame is not in-
ducting the Nat
"King" Cole most
people remember:
Not the suave
crooner whose record-
ings of such ballads as
"Mona Lisa" and "Na-
ture Boy" endure 35
years after his death from
lung cancer. Not daughter
Natalie's posthumous sing-
ing partner in 1991 's
Grammy-winning "Unfor-
gettable" and last year's "The
Christmas Song Not the man
whose songs are heard in doz-
ens of films ("Sleepless in Se-
attle "As Good As It Gets"), TV
shows ("Ally McBeal" and "Star
Trek: Deep Space Nine") and ad
campaigns (Acura, BMW and MCI)
from the 1990s.
Instead, the Hall of Fame is hon- oring the Nat
"King" Cole who until recently was largely forgotten:
the hip pianist and singer whose drummerless trio with
bass and guitar was one of the most popular and in-
novative small jazz combos of the 1940s, an influ-
ence on future generations of jazz and rhythm and
blues artists.
"I think that Nat 'King' Cole should have been
inducted a long time ago, but I'm glad we finally got
around to it said Seymour Stein, president of the
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and founder of Sire
Records.
I

"I would say that his career in rhythm and blues
was as strong if not stronger than his later career in
pop Stein said. "Without question, the main com-
ponent of rock 'n' roll was rhythm and blues
and Nat Cole was one of the top R&B artists of all
time
After Cole stood up from the piano bench to
sing and abandoned his trio in the early 1950s,
its memory gradually faded. Jazz purists felt
betrayed when Cole turned to pop, and he
received only passing mention in jazz refer-
ence books. For decades, his trio recordings
were practically unavailable.
But Carole Cole said the trio remained
at "the core of everything my father did
even after he crossed over" to become a
pop superstar in front of large orches-
tras.
"I always believed that's where his
heart remained, which isn't to say he
didn't enjoy and excel in being a
pop singer she said. "In clubs and
concerts, there was always a mo-
ment in the show when he would
say, 'And now for you music lov-
ers and then he'd sit down at
the piano and jam with prima-
rily a trio
In the past decade, the
Cole trio has enjoyed a renaissance.
There has been a steady outpouring of re-
cordings, from the Grammy-winning 18-CD "The
Complete Capitol Recordings of the Nat 'King' Cole Trio"
(Mosaic) in 1991 to the recently released "Live at the
Circle Room" (Capitol Jazz), a rare document of a live
club date from 1946.
Carole Cole says more releases are planned as the
Capitol vaults yield up more treasures.
Some of the brightest stars on the contemporary jazz
scene, including Diana Krall and John Pizzarelli, have
acknowledged their debt with recordings that re-create
the Cole trio's instrumentation and reinterpret its rep-
ertoire.
And a new biography, "Nat King Cole by Daniel
Mark Epstein, published last fall by Farrar, Straus &
Giroux, is the most definitive to date and does much
to set the record straight about Cole's formative years
and contribution to jazz.
"The fact is that Nat's pop music was so huge that
it eclipsed the jazz music Epstein said. "There was a
certain amount of snobbism in the world of criticism
that if a man or woman is popular then they couldn't
possibly be great
In looking closely at Cole's pre-pop jazz career-as a
triple-threat pianist, singer and small combo leader-
Epstein concluded that he deserves to be ranked among
the first tier of jazz greats, alongside Louis Armstrong
or John Coltrane.
The biography describes how Cole's father, a Bap-
tist minister, brought his family from Alabama to Chi-
cago during the great black migration of the 1920s.
Cole's mother taught him gospel on the piano so he
could play in his father's church. But the precocious
boy was soon sneaking out at night to stand outside
clubs and listen to Armstrong, Earl "Fatha" Hines and
other legends from the Golden Age of Jazz.
The biography re-creates one night at the Savoy
Ballroom in 1935 when the 16-year-old, then known
as "Schoolboy" Cole, more than held his own against
Hines in a battle of the bands. Hines, who Epstein says
"brought into jazz piano playing the complexity of the
European musical tradition was Cole's first major in-
fluence.
"Nat struggled to play as fast, as richly and inven-
tively as Earl Hines, and in the process discovered his
own voice Epstein said. "Nat is much more of a poet,
a lyricist. Hines creates these huge rather complex struc-
tures, and Nat pares down all that.
"Nat becomes the pianist who in the late '30s and
early '40s creates the link between the Golden Age of
Jazz and the bebop era-mainly by knowing what to
leave out in his playing. Bud Powell, Thelonious Monk
and Oscar Peterson were all very much influenced by
Nat. He was a key figure-one of the five greatest jazz
pianists
Perhaps Cole's greatest contribution to jazz-creat-
ing the modern trio format-came about through a com-
bination of luck and economic necessity when the 18-
year-old pianist found himself stranded in Los Ange-
les in 1937 after a touring show fell apart.
A nightclub owner offered him a gig for a small
group-with a bassist, guitarist and drummer-and then
the drummer bowed out because the bandstand - s
too tiny. Cole hired two musicians recommended by
Lionel Hampton: guitarist Oscar Moore and bassist
Wesley Prince.
He shaped a new ensemble sound using what had
been thought of in jazz orchestras as three rhythm in-
struments. Cole found the perfect musical companion
in Moore, an early innovator on the then-new electric
guitar. When bassist Johnny Miller joined the trio in
1942, after Prince was drafted, Cole had the classic
group that would help establish the fledgling Capitol
label. They had a string of hits, starting with "Straighten
Up and Fly Right" in 1943, in which Cole's singing
became ever more prominent.
"I think the most amazing aspect of the trio was
that it was the first drummerless jazz group of any note
and they swung incessantly. No drummer could have
helped them swing any harder said record producer
Michael Cuscuna, who oversaw the release of the lim-
ited edition "Complete Capitol Recordings" in 1991,
and nearly a dozen Capitol CDs since then that show-
case Cole's jazzier side.
"It would have been sad if they had just stayed a
footnote in history Cuscuna said. "But now I think
the group is really here to stay as much as Charlie Parker
and Dizzy Gillespie
The trio's legacy, however, is more than a collec-
tion of reissued archival recordings. Its influence can
be heard in the music played by a new jazz generation.
Pianist-singer Krall, whose newest recording, "When
I Look in Your Eyes is the first jazz CD to receive 3
Grammy nomination for Album of the Year since 1988,
made her breakthrough with her 1996 album, "All for
You a dedication to the Cole trio of the 1940s.
"I've listened to Nat Cole since I was 12 years old;
sometimes on a daily basis Krall said. "His trio influ-
enced all of the people I've admired and learned from,
like Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans and Ahmad Jamal. Nat
Cole is all over pretty much everything I do
Guitarist-singer Pizzarelli got introduced to Cole
through his father, veteran jazz guitarist Bucky
Pizzarelli, who led his own trio with piano, bass and
guitar. The younger Pizzarelli has put his stamp on the
Cole trio repertoire with two tribute albums, 1994's
"Dear Mr. Cole" and "P.S. Mr. Cole released in Sep-
tember.
"There's no me without Nat 'King' Cole said
Pizzarelli, whose new recording, "Kisses in the Rain
again features standards from the classic American
songbook played by his piano-guitar-bass trio.
"There's nothing dated about the trio's music
Pizzarelli said. "The songs sound just as if he had made
them yesterday afternoon in the studio

SUNBURN
from page 6
Lonely farmers find companionship
Burke said, "sunburn are serious and should be treated
carefully
. ' The seriousness is what Lisa Raney is worried
.about. She has received more than a few sunburns in
her life and Dr. Burke points out that repeated burns
lead tc melanoma and can go unseen since the worst
burns normally occur on a person's back.
. "I know the damage that this burn is going to do
:and I only hope I can avoid the same thing in the
future Raney said.
� If you find yourself in the sun, protect yourself.
If you get burned, find some Sarna lotion. Contact
your physician about any medication you may be
taking and the risks it may pose for your skin in the
sun.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP)-As if a faltering farm
economy weren't enough of a burden to bear,
many in agriculture face another problem-
loneliness.
Single farmers and ranchers have a tough
time meeting other people with similar in-
terests, say those who would know best.
"The thing about agriculture, it's usually
in an area where you don't have many neigh-
bors said Kay Remus, 63, of North Platte,
who spent most of her time on a ranch out-
side North Platte until her husband retired.
He died shortly after that in 1991.
Widowed and alone with her children
grown up and carrying on with their own
lives, Remus grew more isolated in the three
years following her husband's death. Then she
spotted a newspaper ad for a gathering of
people like herself.
Six years later, Remus is the chairman of
the 14th annual Singles in Agriculture Na-
tional Annual Convention, which was held
in Lincoln this weekend. The convention's
itinerary was packed with social events includ-
ing nightly dances, group meals and tours of
local landmarks including the Quilt Research
Institute and the nation's only tractor-testing
laboratory.
Singles in Agriculture got its start in 1984,
after one farmer complained in a letter to Farm
Journal that it was hard for him to meet women
interested in rural life.
That year, the ag trade magazine offered to
accept names, addresses and short biographies
from single people in the farm industry and put
them in touch with each other.
It received 2,700 responses-more than the
publication could handle.
In June 1986, 23 people gathered in Peoria,
III for the group's first organized meeting.
Today, the group has a dozen state and re-
gional chapters with about 1,150 members na-
tionwide, including 55 in Nebraska.
"We have people from their mid-20s on up
Remus said. "And they come from all over the
country-even in places where there isn't a chap-

STAFF WRITER
UNC beats Tulsa to
go on to Final Four
The much-maligned Tar
Heelsmade a stunning turn-
around by beating Tulsa 59-55
Sunday in the South Regional fi-
nal to advance to the Final Four
for a record-tying 15th time.
The Tar Heels came into the
tournament having lost four of
six. They were 7-8 since a mid-
January swoon knocked them
out of the poll for the first time in
a decade. This was a dramatic
drop for a team that was No. 2 in
late November. Currently, UNC is
on their best winning streak of
the season, winning four straight
games against teams such as
No. 1 seed Stanford and fourth-
seed Tennessee.
"It took us a while to find each
other this season said senior
guard Ed Cota, who had reached
his third Final Four in four years.
"The teams I was on here before
knew how to win. This team
found it late, but we couldn't have
picked a better time
Meanwhile North Carolina's
arch-rival, Duke, lost to Florida in
the Sweet Sixteen.
Rocker trade
considered
The Atlanta Braves are about
to trade closer John Rocker to
the Montreal Expos, a "highly-
placed baseball official" said. The
deal would swap Rocker for their
closer Ugueth Urbina. Montreal
owner Jeffrey Loria would neither
confirm nor deny interest in
Rocker.
The deal has been discussed
all spring but is getting closer to
being finalized, the source said.
Currently the delay has been
caused by determining who else
might be included in the deal.
The Braves would like to make a
straight swap, but the Expos
want another pitcher, preferably
starter Bruce Chen who is a can-
didate for the No. 5 spot in the
Braves' rotation.
"I don't want to deal with ru-
mors of that Loria said. "He's
property of the Braves and I don't

4-0, while Cory Scott col-
lected his 10th save of the
season.
"I thought we responded
and picked it up a notch
when they came back and put
some pressure on us in the
middle innings LeClair said.
Sunday's game was no dif-
ferent than the previous
meetings, with ECU playing
for the big inning and JMU
desperately trying to defend
it. After three innings, the Pi-
rates held onto a 2-1 lead and
the game looked somewhat
traditional. In the bottom of
the fourth, ECU would once
again hammer JMU's pitch-
ing, scoring 10 runs on eight
hits and one error.
Molinari hit his third
home run of the series as
Bakich followed
with his second giving the Pirates
a 12-1 lead. JMU would fail to
rally, as ECU collected their 24rh
win of the season and another
sweep at home. �
"Molinari had an outstanding
weekend and appears to be in a
groove LeClair said. "As a team
we have really broken out. Our
offense is producing and with the
same effort and enthusiasm, our
success should continue

Pirates take on CM opponents
Tennis teams split
at weekend matches
Ryan Downey
STAFF WRITER
The ECU men's and women's
tennis teams were in action this
weekend. The men split two
matches against American and
Virginia Commonwealth Uni-
versity, and the women experi-
enced a rare loss against Ameri-
can.
The men pulled through a
hard-fought match against
American with late victories by-
Oliver Thalen and Tobias
Boren. Thalen was taken to a
Tiebreaker and Boren trailed
early against Americans' Josh
Procacci and was able to push
his way back into the match
winning 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.
"All of the matches were
even, we we didn't play good
but we won said Oliver
Thalen. "It was a good win be-
cause we have nearly clinched
a winning record for the year,
that has only happened six
times
The match featured many
close calls including a Michael
Huez victory that lasted three
sets before ending in a tie
breaker 10-8 just before sun-
down.
"This is our best match of
the year said Head Coach Tom
Morris. "I am very pleased with
the performance, it did not look
like we were going to win early
on, but we came from behind
in some key matches and
picked up early hard-fought
tough match. It was a real big
win for us
The Pirates were able to get
an early advantage by winning
the point in the doubles
matches. One of the tandems
for American pulled out of the
match meaning the pirates only
had to win one of two available
doubles matches in order to se-
cure the crucial doubles point.
The team that wins the doubles
ECU s Oliver Thalen went to a tiebreaker before winning his match against his
opponent from American, (file photo)
point only has to win three of
the six singles matches so pick-
ing up the doubles point got
them started on the right foot.
"This is the toughest I've
seen everybody play all year
long said team captain
Dustin Hall. "To come back
after the loss against
Wilmington, it's big to bounce
back that way
The Lady Pirates picked up
their fourth loss of the year
falling to American 7-2 which
knocked them to 14-4. The
Lady Pirates started off slow
getting only two singles wins
by Lyndell Jordan 6-4, 6-4 at
tbe number four position and
Hrushida Kamthe 4-6, 6-2, 6-
2 at the number two position.
The team was unable to get
points in the doubles round.
"It's the beginning of a long
road of tough matches said
captain Meredith Spears.
"From here on out every team
we play is going to give us a
rough match
The lady pirates coming off
an earlier win against rival
UNCW are in the midst of a
very promising season and
have been able to keep their
spirits up even in a loss such
as this.
"I thought we had a val-
iant effort, we played tough,
but there are still some little
things we need to work on, like
capitalizing on big points and
executing on the right shots
said Andrea Terrill. "Every-
body played a good match and
we know what is in store in the
next conference match
The men rapped up their
weekend by playing their sec-
ond match in as many days
against Virginia Common-
wealth University who went
into the match ranked number
12 in the nation. The Rams
brought along the number 11,
and number 43 best players in
college men's tennis. They
were able to take control early
and never really let the Pirates
into it, wining all three doubles
matches despite a hard fought
performance by the duo of
Jon Walton and Tobias Boren
who fell 9-8 in the number
three match. The Pirates were
unable to pick up a singles vic-
tory losing 7-0.
"It was a good match to
play, it shows us where we
need to be in a couple of
years Morris said. "I think
ECU'S Tobias Boren won his match against American's Josh Procacci. 4-6. 6-Sr

P
yesterdays match took a lot
out of us, we had three who
couldn't play.
"I'm not using that as an
excuse but it did have some
effect our performance today.
1 think they learned two things
such as we are playing with tlre
top teams and that level is attain-3
able, also we need to work on ourj
foot speed and our strength J

Bubble didn't burst for Wisconsin, UNC
e (AP)-Maybe now bubble teams will get more
respect.
5 Usually a precarious place occupied by pre-
tenders instead of contenders, this year's NCAA
tournament bubble delivered two teams to the
Fjjial Four.
1 North Carolina and Wisconsin, who were both
holding their breath on Selection Sunday, are on
their way to the RCA Dome in Indianapolis, a
couple of No. 8 seeds who turned out to be much
better than that.
3 Both teams lost 13 games this season, but
they've won four straight in the last two week-
ends, which means a ticket to the wrapup of
March Madness.
EOnce again, they will be underdogs for the
national semifinals, Wisconsin going against
Ntjchigan State, the last remaining No. 1 seed in
trie field, and North Carolina facing No. 5 Florida.
�At No. 8, Wisconsin and North Carolina are
the lowest seeds to reach the Final Four since
N0. 11 LSI) made it in 1986. The last No. 8 to get
thjs far was Villanova, which won the national
championship from that spot in 1985.
-�Wisconsin (22-13) vs. Michigan State (30-7):
Th$ is a Big Ten rematch, and the fourth time
thjB season the Badgers and Spartans have
played. Michigan State won the first three, and
Spartans coach Tom Izzo thinks that could be a
problem.
"I don't think it's ever easy to beat a team
twice or beat a team three times Izzo said. "We
know it's going to be tough to beat a team four
times. They are on a roll and making shots now
Wisconsin plays hard-nosed, grind-it-out bas-
ketball, but that doesn't include a lot of points,
especially against the Spartans.
"We haven't figured out a way to score against
them yet coach Dick Bennett said. "Michigan
State is one of the premier defensive teams in
the country. They're hard to score against
This is Wisconsin's first Final Four date since
1941. Bennett thinks it won't shake his team.
"This is a very level-headed group Bennett
said.
Wisconsin finished sixth in the Big Ten, but
has lost just three games since Feb. 2, all of them
to conference champion Michigan State, winners
of nine straight.
Michigan State depends on the senior leader-
ship of Mateen Cleaves, Charlie Bell and Morris
Peterson, and Wisconsin is riding the 3-point
shooting of Division 11 transfer Jon Bryant.

Braves to trade Rocker
HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP)-The Atlanta Braves
are about to trade away closer John Rocker, ac-
cording to a published report.
"The Record" of Hackensack reports in
Monday's editions that a "highly placed base-
ball official" said Atlanta and the Montreal Expos
are on the verge of a deal that would swap Rocker
for closer Ugueth llrbina.
The deal has been discussed all spring, but is
getting closer to being finalized, the source told
the newspaper.
The reason for the delay is discussions about
who else might be included in the deal. The
Braves would prefer to make a straight swap, but
the Expos want another pitcher, preferably
starter Bruce Chen.
Urbina led the National League with 41 saves
last year.
Rocker, who had 38 saves and a 2.49 ERA,
was suspended for all of spring training and the
first 28 days of the season by commissioner Bud
Selig after the reliever's disparaging comments
about minorities, gays and foreigners were pub-
lished. But an arbitrator allowed him to report
March 2 and cut the regular-season suspension
to two weeks.
Seles faces Kournikova at Ericsson
KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (Al')-Count Monica Seles
among Anna Kournlkova's many admirers.
The two top 10 players meet tonight in the
fourth round at the Ericsson Open, and it turns
out Seles is a fan of her foe.
"Anna is very hardworking Seles said.
"She's one of the few people who is here early
in the morning practicing. I've never seen her
slack Off in practice.
"It's really terrific how hard she's working
and how much she wants to be the No. l player
in the world
Kournikova and Seles easily reached the
fourth round with victories Sunday. Seles,
seeded seventh, beat Lisa Raymond 6-3s 6-2.
No. 9 Kournikova swept Natasha Zvereva 6-1,
6-4.
Tonight's match will present contrasting
styles and images. Seles is a sentimental favor-
ite and Grand Slam champion; Kournikova is a
glamorous starlet who makes more news off the
court than on it.
The latest item for the tabloids surfaced Sun-
day: An American Airlines crew says Kournikova
and her mother became belligerent during a
recent flight from Dallas to Miami, forcing the
pilot and police to intervene.
The crew told police the dispute began when
Kournikova refused to put her miniature Do-
berman pinscher in its carrying case, as EAA
rules require. The Kournikovas denied the claim
and said the flight crew treated them rudely.
Kournikova said she dislikes sharing her pri-
vate life with the public.
"They know everything more than they
need to know she said.
One well-documented fact is that the 18-
year-old Russian has never won a tournament
title. But if Seles is correct, Kournikova could
be on the verge of a breakthrough.
"Anna has really improved her serve a lot
from last year Seles said. "She's a really at-
tacking player, a great mover. She's very solid
off both sides. She's not afraid to come' to the
net. I think she has an all-court game
Another intriguing fourth-round match to
day pitted Serena Williams against Jennifer
Capriati. Williams, seeded fifth, advanced Sun-
day by beating Ai Sugivama 6 3, 6 0. No. 13
Capriati beat Chanda Rubin 6-1. 6-3.
Top seed Martina Hingis and No. 2 Lindsay
Davenport also advanced. No. 4 Nathalie
Tauiat ol frame lost to countrywoman
Nathalie Dechy 6-4, 6-2. Two time champion
Arantxa Sanchez Vicario, seeded 10th, was
beaten by Sabine Appelmans, 6-3, 7-5.
In men's play, second-seeded Pete Sampras
overcame an upset stomach and an upset bid
by 19-year-old Swede Andreas Vlnciguerra to
win 5-7, 7-6 (3), 6-4.
Sampras threw up during a changeover
while leading 4-3 in the third set, then closed
out the victory. I le blamed his stomach ailment
on medication he has been taking for his back.
The gutsy performance was reminiscent of
Sampras' win in the 1996 U.S. Open
quarterfinals, when he vomited during a dra-
matic fifth-set tiebreaker against Alex Corretja.
"I'm 2-0 in those matches Sampras said
with a smile. "It's all a ploy
Sampras advanced to a fourth-round show-
down of serves Tuesday against Greg Rusedski,
who beat Byron Black 6-1, 7-6 (4). Rusedski is
1-7 against Sampras.
American Jan-Michael Gambill upset an-
other Swede, fifth-seeded Magnus Norman, 6-
3, 3-6, 6-3. No. 3 Yevgeny Kafelnikov beat
Fernando Meligeni 6-4, 6-3.

Sutton wins Players Championship
Tuesday, March 28, 200
sports@sturJerTtrnedB.i
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP)-Hal Sutton rel-
ished a chance to beat Tiger Woods and got all he
could handle today before holding on for a one-
stroke victory in The Players Championship.
Seventeen years after first winning the PGA Tour's
most lucrative event, Sutton never lost his focus
amidst another thrilling charge by Woods. He closed
with pars on the final two terrorizing holes on the
TPC at Sawgrass.
"Coming down the stretch with Tiger I knew
he was going to play great Sutton said. "The thing
I did best today was stay focused on what I had to
do
Returning to the Stadium Course because storms
suspended the final round Sunday, Sutton made
seven pars to complete a wire-to-wire victory with a
1-under 71. He finished at 278 and earned
$1,080,000 from the $6 million purse, the richest
in golf.
Woods needed a birdie on the last hole for a chance
at a playoff, but hit his approach into a swale left of
the green and chipped up for par. He also finished
with a 71.
SUtton hit next, and the shot covered the flag.
"Be the right club today Sutton urged. It landed
about 8 feet in front of the hole. Sutton let out a "Yes
and shared a hard slap of the hand with his longtime
caddie, Freddie Burns.
Woods looked over and gave him a thumbs-up.
Even though he didn't win, Woods heads to the Mas-
ters with four victories and two second-place finishes
in his last seven tournaments.
"I'm a little disappointed I didn't win Woods said.
"But at least I made Hal work for it
Woods won $648,000, pushing his season earn-
ings to over $3.2 million, the third highest single-
season total in PGA Tour history-through seven
events.
Sutton had been here before. His victory in the 1983
Players Championship also finished on a Monday be-
cause of bad weather. That was a one-stroke victory
over Bob Eastwood.
Today's test came against the No. 1 player in the
world with a penchant for dramatic comebacks.
Three strokes back with three holes to play. Woods
made a 12-foot eagle putt at the 16th, pumping his fist
like he did on the Stadium Course six years ago when
he won the first of his three straight U.S. Amateur titles.
As he had done throughout the entire final round,
Sutton never blinked.
While no lead is safe going to the island-green 17th,
it was playing as easy as it has all week because of the
overnight rain and lack of wind. Woods, with a chance
to put pressure on Sutton, spun his wedge back into
the rough and had to make a 6-footer for par. ,
Sutton played it safe to the middle of the greervand
got his par.
