Record enrollment
The current enrollment is about 18,500 stu-
dents. The university plans to increase total
enrollment to between 25,000 and 27,000
over the next decade.
This fall, the university will face the higher
education facilities bond referendum, which
would provide $3.1 billion for University of
rth Carolina institutions. Over the next 10
years, 50,000 additional university students are
expected statewide. ECU's share of the bonds
would be $190 million, which would finance
construction and renovation projects to repair
and add capacity to the campus. The referen-
dum will be on the Nov. 7 ballot.
New director of enrollment
Dr. Dana Espinosa, former director of
summer sessions at the College of Charleston,
has joined ECU as assistant vice chancellor of
Academic Affairs and director of enrollment
management.
Espinosa will deal with issues such such as
recruitment, retention, and quality of students.
She will supervise the admissions and financial
aid operations as well.
Dr. Richard Ringeisen, vice chancellor for
Academic Affairs, said her position, which is
new at ECU, is critically important as the uni-
versity expands the size of the student body
and increases the academic quality of students.
"Creek 101"
ECU's Inter-fraternity Council, the governing
body of 15 fraternities, and Panhellenic Coun-
cil, governing body of 9 sororities, will offer
information to students interested in going
Creek. Representatives from each of the univer-
sity's fraternities and sororities will be on-hand
to meet with students and answer questions
in preparation of recruitment. "Greek 101" will
take place from 4 p.m7 p.m. Thursday, Aug.
24 in Sweetheart's in Todd Dining Hall. All
students are encouraged to attend.
Open auditions
The East Carolina Playhouse will hold open
auditions for boys and girls ages 10-12 for roles
in "Gypsy the first performance of the fall
season, set for Oct. 5-10. Auditions will be held
starting at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 25 in the

EDITOR IN CHIEF
Former FX:u Student Government Association
(SGA) president Clifford Webster Jr. was issued a
continuance in court last Friday. Webster is charged
with larceny stemming from an incident that occurred
last semester.
Webster, who is also the current University of North
Carolina Association of Student Governments (ASG),
and former French education major Joshua Culp were
arrested by the Greenville Police Department on June
30 following a 10 month long investigation into the
theft of two metallic benches located north of the
McGinnis Theater Arts Building that were discovered
missing last August. One bench, valued at $1,400, was
found at Webster's residence at 403 Biltmore St. in
Greenville, the second bench, valued at $900, was
later discovered at Gulp's former Greenville residence
405 F. 5th St. 2C.
The two students were arrested on charges of
larceny both at the felony and misdemeanor levels.
Culp received an additional charge of possession of
stolen property.
"Let me first state that a felony charge is pretty
serious said Thomas Ycmnce, assistant director of the
F.CU Police Department.
A felony is defined as any stolen property that is
valued at over $1,000.
"This is a serious crime and it is hard to determine
what action will take place Younce said. "It all depends
on whether this is a first offense or not. This felony, if
convicted, could result in a prison term as low as three
years and can go as high as eight years
Both students were sent to the Office of the Dean
of Students for their misconduct in accordance with
university regulations.
"This is not double jeopardy Younce said. "ECU
has administrative mles and deals with student conduct
whereas the case is (also) being disputed under a felony
charge in criminal court

the ECU Judicial Board in this case must be kept
confidential due to federal privacy laws.
"Any information concerning a student's hearing
cannot be released in accordance with the Family
Education Right To Privacy Act Antineau said.
The Family Education Right To Privacy Act is a
federal law that prevents an institution of higher
education from revealing personal information about a
student to a third party without that student's written
permission. All students are issued this form by The
Office of Student Conflict Resolution prior to their
campus judicial review.

�84 percent of all sexual assaults are committed
by an acquaintance of the victim.
� 38 percent of acquaintance rape victims are
14-17 years old. The average age of adolescent
and college victims is 18.5 years.
�20 percent, or 1 in 5, college-age women will
be victims of sexual assault at some point during

HOW TO PROTECT
YOURSELF FROM SEXUAL ASSAULT
Use Your Head
�Be alert! Walk with confidence and purpose.
�Be aware of your surroundings-know who's
out there and what's going on.
�Don't let alcohol or other drugs cloud your
judgment.
�Trust your instincts. If a situation or place
makes you feel uncomfortable or uneasy, leave.
Indoors
�Make sure all doors and windows have sturdy,
well-installed locks, and use them. Install a wide-
angle peephole in the door. Keep entrances well-
lighted.
�Never open your door to strangers. Offer to
make an emergency call while someone waits out-
side. Check the identification of any sales or service
people before letting them in. Don't be embar-
rassed to phone for verification.
�Be wary of isolated spots-apartment laundry
rooms, underground garages, parking lots, offices
after business hours. Walk with a friend, co-worker
or security guard, particularly at night.
�Know your neighbors, so you have someone to
call or go to if you're scared.
�If you come home and see a door or window
open or broken, don't go in. Call the police from a
public phone or neighbor's home.
Outdoors
�Avoid walking or jogging alone, especially at
night. Stay in well-traveled, well-lighted areas.
�Wear clothes and shoes that give you freedom
of movement.
�Be careful if anyone in a car asks you for direc-
tions-if you answer, keep your distance from the
car.
�Have your key ready before you reach the
door-home, car or office.
�If you think you're being followed, change
direction and head for open stores, restaurants,
theaters or a lighted house.

ECUPD steps up security
after second assault in one week

EDITOR IN CHIEF
A female student was assaulted and robbed on campus Sunday,
Aug. 20.
The victim was struck in the face and knocked unconscious by an
unknown male while walking between the Mamie Jenkins and Erwin
buildings on West Campus at approximately 8:30 p.m.
The assailant stole approximately $20 in cash from the victim's
purse before fleeing. The student regained consciousness minutes
later and yelled for help. Two faculty members nearby heard her and
called the police.
The victim was unable to give a description of the suspect because
she was approached from behind. She was then taken to Pitt County
Memorial Hospital where she was treated for a swollen eye and cheek and
released. There is currently no information on the suspect.
According to Capt. Frank Knight of the ECU Police Department
(ECUPD), this type of assault is unusual for ECU. However, the ECUPD
will be increasing campus security due to the two incidences of assault
that have occurred this past week.
"This assault is an unusual event Knight said. "But we are stepping
up security by adding more campus security, extra student patrol and
officers to make certain it does not happen again
The ECUPD advises all students to avoid dark areas between buildings
and encourages students to use well-lighted public walkways at night.
"Always be aware of your surroundings Knight said. "Be aware of
where the nearest blue light emergency phones are located. Also, if you
walk with a friend that deters about 90 percent of assaults
Police ask that anyone who witnessed suspicious activity on Aug. 20
between 8 p.m9 p.m. near Mamie Jenkins and Erwin buildings contact
Det. Mike Jordan at 328-6215. Crime tips can be left anonymously online

ASSAULT from page 1
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP)-As Verizon Com-
munications worked with union leaders Sunday to
end a strike in 12 Eastern states, many West Virginia
University students and their parents have chosen to
go cellular for the semester.
Morgantown area cellular phone businesses have
reported brisk sales as parents work to provide their
college students with a way to phone home before the
fall semester begins Monday.
John Zuercher of Kingwood said finding an apart-
ment for his son and getting financial aid was easy
compared to the trouble he's had getting telephone
service since the Aug. 6 strike began.
"There are always going to be little frustrations
but this is a big one said Zuercher, who also has a
daughter who attends Shepherd College. "He needs
the phone to be able to call home, but he really needs
it for jobs and for his professors, things like that. We
don't have much of a choice right now
And Zuercher is not alone.
Hundreds of WVU students were told by Verizon
service personnel that no new phone hookups could
be guaranteed until December because of the strike
and a backlog of around 100,000 repair orders.
Kelly Deunoras, a sophomore elementary educa-
tion major from Atlantic City, N.J said she couldn't
gamble on strike negotiations. She and her roommates
missed getting their phone hooked up by one day
when the workers walked out two weeks ago.
While she now has a new cellular phone, a home
computer is lying dormant because no telephone line
means no Internet service. While she can use campus
computer labs to access the Web, she said she couldn't
do without the telephone.
"I had to have a phone Deunoras said. "That's
all there was to it
Union leaders said they were meeting with com-
pany officials Sunday to work out details of a con-
tract that would end the two-week strike of 87,000
telephone workers.
Verizon, formed by the summer merger of Bell
Atlantic and GTE, has struggled during the strike to
fill growing numbers of repair requests, estimating
that as many as 50,000 customers had no phone
service at all.
The strike affects about 25 million customers from
Maine to West Virginia.
Many potential customer like Deunoras who
turned to cellular service during the strike will keep
their mobile service even after the strike is settled.
"1 have to Deunoras said. "I signed a contract
Salesman Frank Presley, laughing over the elec-

NEWARK, N J. (AP)-Rutgers University has filed
a lawsuit against the company that expanded and
renovated its football stadium, which is plagued by
problems-including faulty guardrails and cracking
concrete-just six years after it reopened.
The lawsuit, filed Friday, claims Terminal Contract-
ing Corp. of Wood-Ridge used sloppy workmanship
and substandard materials to build the stadium, forcing
the university to pay for expensive emergency repairs.
It asks for at least $3.6 million of the money it has
spent for those repairs.
Rutgers also named a construction management
company and a Princeton architectural firm for failing
to supervise properly the $22.6 million renovation
that was completed in 1994 to herald Rutgers' entry
into the Big East.
University officials said repairs needed for public
safety have been completed in time for the Sept. 2
home opener against Villanova,
but Rutgers will spend as much as $3 million more
to finish the remaining repairs by next summer.
"We believe the university should be compensated
for the significant cost of these extensive repairs by
the firms responsible for ensuring the integrity of the
project David Scott, attorney for the university,
said in a statement.
Officials at Terminal declined to comment.
The project manager, Lehrer, McGovern, Bovis,
Inc. of Princeton, also was named in the lawsuit.
Company officials said they were surprised to be sued,
as Lehrer is currently working on stadium repairs.
"We're shocked Stephen Steelman, senior vice
president at the company, told The Star-Ledger of
Newark for Saturday's editions. "Personally, I'm
dismayed that they decided to make us a part of that.
We volunteered our services at below cost to imple-
ment some of the changes that they've identified.
We've been working closely with them
Rutgers officials did not comment on why they are
suing a company that continues to work there.
The stadium's problems became public in April,
when it was learned that guardrails designed to keep
people from falling to lower levels had loosened from
their concrete settings.
The lawsuit also claims inadequate expansion
joints have caused sidewalks and walls to crack, and
accuses the contractor of allowing various structural
deficiencies.
Montana University (U-WIRE)-The National
Interagency Fire Center is calling it the worst fire
season in 30 years. So far, nearly five million acres
of land have been ravaged, and a $15 million daily-
tab isn't enough to temper the blazes, which still rage
through the western United States and Canada and
have claimed the lives of six firelighters.
In other words: Help wanted. Now.
To that effect, the Montana university system has
granted an extended summer vacation to students
volunteering their time as firefighters.
"These students are putting themselves at risk to
protect our environment, and it is appropriate that we
assist them in their efforts State Commissioner of
Higher Education Richard Crofts told the Associated
Press.
University of Montana officials say that roughly
1,800 students are expected to qualify for the exten-
sion, which allows students on the fire lines to register
for classes, financial aid and housing as late as Sept. 25.
Classes for most students will resume Sept. 5.
"I think it appropriate, under these circumstances,
that we recognize the willingness of our students to
put themselves in harm's way to protect the natural
and built environments in Montana UM President
George Dennison said in a statement. "By reserving
their places, we can let them know that we appreciate
what they have done
Roughly 85 fires are still burning in 13 states, most
notably in Montana and Idaho, according to the NIFC.
More than 950,(XK) acres are still burning.
Eligible students have until Monday to call the
university and request an extension. The number to
call is (406) 243-6550.
In your car
�Park in areas that will be well-lighted and well-traveled
when you return.
�Always lock your ear-when you get in and when you get
out.
�Look around your car and in the back seat before you
get in.
�If your car breaks down, lift the hood, lock the doors,
and turn on your flashers. Use a Call Police banner or flares.
If someone stops, roll the window down slightly and ask the
person to call the police or a tow service.
�Don't hitchhike, ever. Don't pick up a hitchhiker.
WHEN THE UNTHINKABLE HAPPENS
How should you handle a rape attempt? It depends on
your physical and emotional state, the situation and the rap-
ist's personality. There are no hard and fast, right or wrong
answers. Surviving is the goal.
�Try to escape. Scream. Be rude. Make noise to discourage
your attacker from following.
�Talk, stall for time, and assess your options.
�If the rapist has a weapon, you may have no choice but to
submit. Do whatever it takes to survive.
�If you decide to fight back, you must be quick, deter-
mined and effective. Target the eyes or groin.
SURVIVING SEXUAL ASSAULT
�Report rape or any sexual assault to the police or rape
crisis center. The sooner you tell, the greater the chances the
rapist will be caught.
�Preserve all physical evidence. Don't shower, bathe,
change clothes or throw any clothing away until the police or
rape counselor say it's OK.
�Go to a hospital emergency room or your own doctor for
medical care immediately.
�Don't go alone. Ask a friend or family member to go with
you or call a rape crisis center or school counselor.
�Get counseling to help deal with feelings of anger, help-
lessness, fear and shame caused by rape. It helps to talk to
someone about the rape, whether it happened last night, last
week or years ago.
�Remember, rape is not your fault. Do not accept blame
for being an innocent victim.
IF SOMEONE YOU KNOW HAS BEEN ASSAULTED
�Believe her or him.
�Don't blame the victim.
�Offer support, patience and compassion to help the rape
victim work through the crisis, heal and emerge a survivor.

Air Force, Army ROTC take on challenging summer
Tuesday

Cadets sent to various
training facilities
Nancy Kuck
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
Students from the Air Force and
Army ROTC were sent to various
training camps this summer in
order to complete cadet require-
ments and receive a commission
upon graduation.
Ten Army ROTC cadets repre-
sented ECU at Advanced Camp in
Ft. Lewis, Wa. throughout various
cycles from May to August. At this
camp, students were evaluated
on leadership, land navigation,
tactical doctrine and other basic
soldier skills. Twelve Air Force
ROTC cadets attended Field Train-
ing in Lackland Air Force Base, TX
and Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla.
"When we send cadets to camp,
they are confident in their ROTC
knowledge but do not know how
to react to their peers. They are
suddenly put into an environment
where they would take on various
leadership positions said Capt.
Perkins, an instructor at one of
the Advanced Camp cycles at Ft.
Lewis and Assistant Professor of
Military Science. "Their field work
and leadership strategies that the
cadets applied at the training were
commendable
Both camps taught the students
various skills in leadership, physi-
cal fitness, military professionalism
and basic soldier skills.
Murphrey Knox, an Army
ROTC cadet, was commissioned
directly out of camp as a second
lieutenant. Her graduation require-
ments at ECU are already com-
pleted.
Kyle Lanto, an Air Force ROTC
cadet, received the Distinguished
Graduate Award for demonstrating
outstanding performance in all
aspects of Air Force ROTC Field
Training and for being one of the
most outstanding individuals at
his camp at Tyndall. Tanoa Mardis

stration of outstanding skills and
dedication while at Lackland.
"Before they got there, the
cadets did not know what to
expect said Capt. Davis, Com-
mandant of Cadets at Tyndall
and of Aerospace Science. "After
completion, the cadets appeared
self-sufficient with an increase of
morale and esprit de corp. Overall,
they were outstanding cadets
"I can say that Advanced Camp
was an experience said senior
Robert Bowling. "I liked the tactical
arms actually. That was actually
fun
"It was difficult but we all man-
aged to pull through. 1 think that
field training taught me the basis
of leadership that I can implement
in my future at school and the
Air Force said junior Nicholas
Streitz.
Upon returning to campus,
cadets are required to maintain a
standard GPA, which varies accord-
ing to major, and degree, as well

"It is, in my opinion, more dif-
ficult to be a cadet than a student
Streitz said. "As a cadet, not only
we have to go through and pass
our courses with sufficient GPA's,
we also have to take on the tasks
of being physically fit and assume
roles in the ROTC detachment
Cadets are required to imple-
ment all of their experience and
knowledge to train the next class
of students for the training camps
in 2001.

Ivy League schools vary
with handling of Native
American tradition
CAMBRIDGE, MassWhen Andrew Lee went to his opening week
of classes at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government, he
passed a rotunda displaying the national flags of the students attending
the school. But as a Seneca, Lee never saw the flag of his own people,
until this year.
Now, after a bit of lobbying, the school's flying the flags of two Indian
nations, the Osage and Lee's Iroquois confederacy. "It was up there flying
front and center Lee said. "I felt really proud
Lee is one of a generation of Indian students making a serious impact
on elite Eastern campuses and in turn bringing the impressive resources
of the Ivy League back to Indian country.
Now on the staff of the Harvard Project for American Indian Economic
Development, Lee directs its Honoring Nations program. And he is not
the only Ivy Indian making his voice heard.
To be sure, there are high spots and low spots, and a big difference
in between. And no one in the East can match the broad range of
language and cultural resources found at colleges supported by a large
tribal population. But the Ivies can boast of flourishing Indian programs
at Harvard, Cornell and Dartmouth, founded with funds raised by a
Mohegan evangelist, but took 200 years to return the favor.
Indian enrollment at Dartmouth has ranged from 2 to 3 percent in
recent years, with 140 currently at the school. The dean of Dartmouth
College, Jim larimore, is Comanche.
At the other end, Princeton University has just .7 percent Indian and
Alaskan Native, a lonely 29 of 4,600 undergraduates, and the best it can
do for Native studies is to assign an occasional book by an Indian author.
But this was the school that produced Hugh Henry Brackenridge, the 18th
century author who advocated Indian extermination.
Some non-Ivy Eastern schools, such as the University of Massachusetts
and the University of Maine, offer concentrations in Native American
studies and student support such as special housing. The Vermont Law
School has established a First Nations Environmental Uw Program.
Here is a rundown of the outstanding Ivy League programs:
Dartmouth: This college in Hanover, N.H is making up for lost
time. It was founded in 1769 expressly to educate "Indian youths,
English youths and others and its first endowment was the then-large
sum of 12,000 pounds raised on a speaking tour in the British Isles
by the Mohegan evangelist Samson Occam. But Occam was bitterly
disappointed by the way his funds were used. In the next 200 years
Dartmouth graduated only about 20 American Indians.
Larimore said the attitude changed sharply when John Kemeny
became president in 1970. As chairman of an equal opportunity
committee, larimore wrote a report advocating a return to the original
commitment to Indian education. On Kemeny's first day as president
this report landed on his desk, "and he thought its conclusions were
well founded

'me-q a service
Way to go, Cliffie. We're so proud of you
What a shining example you have set as our once student body president
You have so much love for this university, you took a piece of it home to live
with you. If only we could all be so devoted. If only we all had the courage to
take on the law when it has clearly stepped way over the line
That's our Cliff Webster. Whether fighting for the cause of the downtrodden
or standing up for the rights of the underprivileged, our hero consistently
struggles to bring faith back to those without hope. Now he has reaffirmed
his worth as a leader by rescuing a neglected piece of university furniture
from an unappreciative student body. We're so lucky to have around such
a paragon of justice and truth.
Sadly, poor Cliff has fallen victim to a judicial system with a devastating
sense of vengeance. The police, the courts, and the ECU judicial system have
failed us all by threatening punishment for a crime he clearly could not have
avo.ded committing. We should be thanking him for his vision, not putting
him down. Where is justice? Where is the right to steal university furniture
your time of need? Has the world gone mad?
Free Cliff Webster! Remove the chains of society and let him pursue his
inalienable right to happiness with a metal bench. We beseech you judicial
board, let our Cliffie go! It was all that Culp boy's fault, anyway.
We must not let Cliff's sacrifice be in vain. We must stand up and demand
our voices be heard. We must rise up and refuse to be quiet We must
remain on our feet, crying out to the world as loud as we can that an
injustice has been done!
Moreover, we must replace Cliff as our university representative in the
state student government association as soon as possible. Of course his
replacement must be as responsible and mature as his predecessor' But
wherever shall we find such a man? He is, after all, such a rare jewel.
So Cliff Webster, we applaud you. Your legendary name will ring on
at this university for years to come, as we all retell the sad tale of the day
old Cliffie went up the river.
Countdown to Campaign 2000 Issue: Gun control
4aUal�odlu
Countdown to Campaign 2000 issue: gm
control
said one CBS Evening
fladost 7utinpe
Whenever there is a senseless gun tragedy in
'the United States the Democratic Party and the
Liberal Media attempt to take full advantage of it
by trying to convince Americans into believing that
gun lobbyists and manufactures are to blame and
that more restrictive gun laws would have prevented
the tragedy.
Yep, Charlton Heston and the CEO of Colt firearms
went out yesterday and hired two thugs to shoot
up a post office! Come on people, get real. Nobody
advocates such acts of madness, including the gun
manufactures and the National Rifle Association
(NRA).
When someone uses a gun to commit a crime I
think they should be locked-up for a long time. If a
criminal is in jail it is rather hard for him to commit
another crime against the public, isn't it? Aren't most
violent criminals repeat offenders? That is one of the
things that I, and many other conservatives believe
in. Criminals should be punished. If someone is
guilty of using a gun to commit a crime they should
go to jail.
What good would more guns laws do when the
ones that are currently on the books are not enforced?
They would make it tougher for the average citizen
to protect him or herself. I want to see the laws that
we have now more vigorously enforced. Again, send
the criminals to fail.
There is the belief that more laws restricting gun
ownership would reduce the crime rates. That is
wrong! Took it up. England's gun ownership laws are
much more restrictive that the US's and their crime
rates are higher.
"You are more likely to be burglarized here, almost
twice as likely to be robbed and two and a half more
times likely to be assaulted,
News reporter in England.
Contrast that wlttil'lfxas wrflffctntie "Right
to Carry" law was signed into l.iw by Governor George
W. Bush iti 199S, murder rates have dropped by 52
percent compared to 33 percent nationally and rapes
have fallen by 22 percent compared to 16 percent
nationally. I am not saying that everyone should walk
around with a pistol on their hip, but the fact that
someone might be armed makes criminals, in Texas
anyway, less likely to attack. That's what I want, less
crime, fewer rapes and murders. More gun laws will
only increase the crime rates.
I once saw a bumper sticker that said, "Gun
Control is Hitting What You Aim At That, in essence,
is the truth. One of the biggest firearms safety rules
is, "Only point your gun at something you intend
to shoot The gun does not know the difference
between a paper target and person. Guns don't kill
people, people kill people. If someone kills someone
they should go to jail. In the United Sates cars kill
more people every year than guns, should we make
car ownership illegal?
the biggest reason 1 am against further gun control
is the Second Amendment.
"No man shall ever be debarred the use of arms
said Thomas Jefferson. "The strongest reason for the
people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is,
as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny
in government
Don't think that I am saying we should rise up
and other throw the government, I am not. This is a
government of the people, by the people, and for the
people. And if those in power ever forget that, I want
to ensure that I, or my children, or grandchildren will
be able to fight for what is right, and without guns
they won't he able to do that.
Gun control is a very controversial and personal
issue among many Americans today. With the increas-
ing violence and the strong push for more gun control
legislation, Americans are turning to Washington on
a large scale looking for answers.
But with two major sides, two large and concrete
opinions, how does Washington respond? You have
two sides when it comes to Congress, those who
support gun control and those who don't. But who
will come out on top? Most likely there will be
compromises and laws passed to some extent, but
to what extent? That's what this election can pay a
major role in. Whoever gets elected will gain ground
for their cause. �
While neither candidate has mentioned gun
control in their campaign recently, it is very clear as
to where they stand. Al Gore has always supported
President Clinton with his efforts for gun control.
He has promised to work for mandatory background
checks to keep guns out of the hands of .criminals
and to propose mandatory child safety locks. Notice
how Gore isn't trying to "get rid" of the Second
Amendment, he isn't trying to take guns out of the
hands of all citizens; he has just promised to do
what
common sense would tell us to do: to get guns out
of the hands of criminals and children. Now that isn't
violating the Second Amendment as the notorious
NRA would claim. They have now made Gore's defeat
their top priority and with the so-called big muscle in
politics and strong hold on Republicans, they might
just make a difference. It would be sad though, if a
group of 4 million common sense-challenged people
could decide the outcome of an election for a country
of more than 246 million.
Bush, on the other hand, is against any type of
gun control. He has always been against it and his
state is one of the largest machine gun and handgun
producers, which may explain the number of execu-
tions carried out by the state of Texas every month. I
don't understand how a person can be opposed to all
types of gun control legislation. Wouldn't you at least
want to make sure that criminals and the mentally
ill don't have access to firearms? Wouldn't you want
to make sure that your kids are safe at school? I
guess that's why the NRA (roughly 1.6 percent of the
population) is a minority; the only reason they have a
big voice is because they have a big mouth and blow
a lot of hot water.
Of course we cannot vote for a candidate based
just on one issue, especially since there are many
other issues at hand, such as the life of social security.
Medicare, what to do with our newfound surplus,
our armed forces, campaign finance reform and the
credibility of the candidates. Admittedly, M Gore has
had his share of the campaign finance problems and
accusations; however, he has now vowed to bring
changes to the system. George W. Bush on the other
hand doesn't seem to have the experience or the
credibility. The only reason he is able to run is because
of his father. It's too bad we aren't a monarchy;
otherwise, he would be the perfect candidate.
Bush has repeatedly talked about and promised
legislation to give tax breaks to the lower and middle
class. However, all his legislation has been geared to
give tax breaks to the upper class. Based on this, how
can we believe anything else he says?
It seems very clear to me, Bush is definitely not
suited for the presidency; it would be a very dark day
if he were to become president. We can't let the five
percent upper class and the NRA rule our country-
that's not what we are about. We can't have people
running around shooting others in schools and public
places-that's not a civilized society. That's an anarchy,
which is exactly what Bush and the NRA prefer.

LETTER TO EDITOR
Professors deserve special thanks
Dear Editor,
I would like to express my gratitude to some
professors that have had a huge impact on my life.
I am a senior, have a family, and commute from
Goldsboro, These were all
challenges that 1 felt were going to be hard to
conquer. I was doing very well and succeeding beyond
my wildest dreams.
Then last fall, I succumbed to an illness I had
been fighting for a very long time and my body just
couldn't take it anymore. It was the week before finals
and I could barely get off my couch. I was able to get
incompletes in two of my courses and try to take a
break and get better.
I tried to come back in the spring but my illness
just got worse. I was in contact with my two professors
and they were very understanding, genuinely cared
about my health, and told me not too worry about
my grades and to just get better. 1 do not know what
I would have done without their support. I was able
to let go of the stress of school, family, and get myself
well. It was a long road, hard struggle, yet I made it
and am back again and will finally be taking those
finals soon. My professors went out of their way to
show me that they cared about their students and
do not just think of us as a number or nameless face
in the crowd. Thank you so much Dr. Mary Harwell,
Dr. Cindy Putnam-Evans and my adviser Dr. jean-Luc
Scemama.
I will forever be grateful for all the things that the
three of you did for me academically, and emotionally.
My college experience has shown me how dedicated
most professors are to their students and it makes me
more dedicated to myself and my grades. We should
remember to show them how much we appreciate
the ones who
touch our lives the way these three professors have
touched mine. I am not sure I could ever express how
much you all helped me, but I hope that this letter
shows that I am appreciative.
God bless all of you,
Maria Anderson
(U-WIRE) OXTORD, MissHow many of you
guys like music? How many of you like free music?
Anything free is good, right? When one attaches the
word "free" to anything, it all of a sudden becomes
remarkably valuable to poor college students (you'll
notice that one as time goes along if you're anything
like me).
How many of you were small children, bullied
by the largest kid on the playground? How many of
you guys lost your swing or your lunch money to
that big guy who sat behind you in fourth grade?
I'm sure more of you had that experience than care
to admit it.
Imagine you are a small company that distributes its
software completely free of charge. Imagine there is a
bully present, not just some corporate bully who wants
to take money from you; that's capitalism. Imagine
this bully wants you dead, wants you completely
gone from this Earth. If you envisioned it correctly,
you have a very
close-to-home situation, don't you?
for those of you out there who don't get the
parallel, the situation is one that has teem plastered
across news headlines for several months now. If
you've been living in a cave, Metallica, one of the most
influential groups of the last two decades, is suing a
small company called Napster.
Napster is computer software that allows the
exchange of music via the Internet. It works simply:
You log on, and you download music, some of which
is copyrighted, some of which is not. Legally, you have
the right to do this, as long as you delete the music
file from your computer within 24 hours. The problem
is, most people don't.
But what's the problem with that? Most people
use Napster music files on a trial basis, exactly what
they're meant to be used for. If they like the files they
download, they buy the CD they come from. Many-
songs are hard to find on Napster; you have to buy the
CD that they come from in order to find them.
How many of you out there have ever copied a
friend's CD onto a tape? I know most of you have. I
have. There's no problem with that. It seems to me that
it's the same principle. That's copyright infringement,
and what is Metallica suing Napster over? Copyright
infringement.
Metallica, as a band, has been getting progressively
worse over the last five years. Their last two albums
have been widely regarded as horrible, and they are
looking for an outlet, some way to make themselves
known again. They are the playground bullies that
cry when you punch them for the first time. They
want your money, and even though they'll probably
get it if you like what they download, they want
exposure.
That's what this entire lawsuit is about. Exposure.
Metallica is looking for an outlet to get their name
out again, and Napster provided a wonderful excuse
to do so.
What Metallica doesn't realize is they are providing
themselves negative exposure. By taking Napster away
from the general public, their lawsuit has caused many
people, including myself, to pledge never to buy a
Metallica album again.
Many bands have embraced the new MP3 revolu-
tion, bands such as They Might Be Giants, whose last
albums have been completely MP3 format. Metallica
can't seem to do this. They are stuck in the past, in
the era of CDs and tapes, and cannot see that a new
revolution is taking place.
The university has taken away our access to Napster,
and it's time we told them exactly what we think about
it. It all boils down to this: The bully won.
Is that what really needs to happen?

For Some U. Of Montana Students,
Extended Vacation Is Anything But
(U-W1RE)-The National lnter-
agency Fire Center is calling it the
Worst fire season in 30 years. So
tat, nearly five million acres of
land have been ravaged, and a $15
million daily tab isn't enough to
temper the blazes, which still rage
through the western United States
�nd Canada and have claimed the
fives of six firefighters.
I In other words: Help wanted.
Now.
To that effect, the Montana
university system has granted an
txtended summer vacation to stu-
dents volunteering their time as
jirefighters.
"These students are putting
themselves at risk to protect our
Environment, and it is appropriate
fhat we assist them in their efforts
State Commissioner of Higher Edu-
cation Richard Crofts told the
Associated Press.
University of Montana officials
say that roughly 1,800 students are
expected to qualify for the exten-
sion, which allows students on
the fire lines to register for classes,
financial aid and housing as late as
Sept. 25. Classes for most students
will resume Sept. 5.
"I think it appropriate, under
these circumstances, that we recog-
nize the willingness of our students
to put themselves in harm's way
to protect the natural and built
environments in Montana UM
President George Dennison said
in a statement. "By reserving their
places, we can let them know
that we appreciate what they have
done
Roughly 85 fires are still burn-
ing in 13 states, most notably in
Montana and Idaho, according to
the MFC. More than 950,000 acres
are still burning.
Eligible students have until
Monday to call the university and
request an extension. The number
to call is (406) 243-6550.

Walking Ufhrtv�a Portrait of Ateert ffnitefn
A one-man theatrical performance starring Len Barron
Tuesday, August 29,7:30 p.m.
Hendrix Theatre, Mendenhall Student Center
Einstein reflects on the purpose of education
is to nurture thoughfulness. The lesser function of thinking is
to solve puzzles and problems. The essential purpose is to discover
for oneself what is of genuine value in life. "
Barron reflects on Einstein, and life
'It was Einsten s view that it requires courage to take your own
thoughts seriously. Einstein held fast to his own rhythm. Technology is
full of the most wonderful, exquisite gifts, but we live in a time where
the fax machine sets the pace of our lives. Technology is merely a tool,
and the tool has been turned into the boss. Someone once asked
Einstein where his office was, and he pulled a pencil from his pocket and said, 'It's right here
Einstein didn 't have a single friend until he was 16-y ears-old because he preferred to follow his
own rhythm and his own thoughts. You can't do that very easily when you 're part of a gang. "

Homer Wells (Tobey Maguire) was a child without par-
ents. Larch (Michael Caine) was a man without children.
Theirs was an extraordinary bond. At the orphanage,
Larch taught Homer everything about being a doctor,
but nothing about right and wrong. All Homer really
wanted was the one thing Larch could not give him:
rules to live by. So he had to look elsewhere. When a
couple invited him to work on their Maine farm, he
made the toughest decision of his life: to leave the only
family he's ever known. Now he's out on his own, in
over his head, and caught in a love triangle. And he's
starting to realize it's time to live by his own rules.

HOROSCOPE
Today's Birthday (Aug. 22). This year
your success is assured if you meet the chal-
lenges. An immovable barrier could become
a springboard to adventure. In August you're
spinning your wheels. By September new
information makes the impossible seem
doable. A change to your home may be
required in December. An old partner leads
to new funding in February. Use creativity
to advance in April and step into a new role
in June.
To get the advantage, check the day's
rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most
challenging.
Aries (March 21 April 19)
Today is a 7 � The orders could come
suddenly, so be prepared. If you can do
anything ahead of time, do it. You work well
under pressure, but having things ready is
even smarter. Think about it. What could
happen and what would you need if it did?
Taurus (April 20 May 20)
Today is a 7 � You could get lucky in
love over the next few weeks. You should
notice the improvement by Thursday. You
may still feel a little tongue-tied, however.
Don't worry. As you relax, knowing what to
say and saying it will be easier.
Gemini (May 21 -June 21)
Today is a 6 � Speak up about something
you don't like. Everything will turn out for
the best if you stop holding back. You were
trying to be nice, but that hasn't gotten your
meaning across. Stop hinting. Tell the other
person what you want.
Cancer (June 22 July 22)
Today is a 7 � You may think you have
yourself well-figured out, but don't be so
sure. You might do something you thought
was beyond your capabilities. It's perfectly
natural � aqjjcalled learning. Today you
might discover it's happened again.
Leo (July 23 Aug. 22)
Today is a 6 � Money will be your domi-
nant theme for the next few weeks. You may
find out that you're not made of it. Go to
nice places if you want, but don't order the
most expensive thing on the menu. Don't let
exquisite taste override common sense!
Virgo (Aug. 23 Sept. 22)
Today is an 8 � You may notice things
that you thought were too difficult are getting
easier, liven a person who was intimidating
may start to look like a cupcake. Is he or she
getting weaker, or are you getting stronger?
The latter's more likely.
Libra (Sept. 23 Oct. 23)
Today is a 6 � A lot of changes are going
on, and they could complicate your life. You
have lots of new things to learn, hopefully
not the hard way. Pay attention to what's
happening around you, especially if you're
traveling.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 Nov. 21)
Today is an 8 � You're interested in giving
money to your favorite charity, and that's
good. Give a little bit more than you think
you can afford. That will make it necessary
for you to cut back on some vices, and that
will be good for you, too.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 Dec. 21)
Today is a 5 � An older person may order
you around, but take care. He or she could
change directions three or four times before
you get to your destination. Don't follow
blindly; make suggestions. Something you
come up with could work.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 Jan. 19)
Today is a 7 � Kxpect a barrier between
you and what you want. Don't expect commu-
nications, travel or deliveries to go smoothly.
If you figure out what might go wrong and
expect it to do that, you have a better chance
of meeting your goals.
Aquarius (Jan 20 Feb. 18)
Today is a 6 � You and your sweetheart
have plans, but you need to talk them over
before you go shopping. Don't be spontane-
ous about this; do the homework first. If you
spend too much in one place, you won't have
enough for something else. Be thorough now,
and you can have it all.
Pisces (Feb. 19 March 20)
Today is a 6 � Others want to make all
sorts of outrageous demands on your time
and talents. If you don't speak up, they'll run
over you! They won't ask for your opinion;
you'll have to interrupt. You may have to
holler to be heard, too.

FEATURES EDITOR
As a student, you may reside in Wilson Acres or
perhaps you live in either Pirate's Cove or your own
home. Regardless, despite the fact that your residence
is not on campus, there are still thousands of ways to
stay involved with daily activity at ECU.
According to "The Student as Commuter" by
Barbara Jacobs, "Research suggests that the more time
and effort that students invest in the learning process,
the greater will be their growth, achievement, and
satisfaction with their college experience
Approximately 73 percent of students reside
off campus annually, and that number is quickly
increasing. As a result, students are continually
finding ways to connect themselves in various ways
to the ECU community.
"Although I decided to move off campus this
year, I don't want to lose the opportunities that
existed within my dorm experience said sophomore
Neely Tugwell. "It was so easy to walk to a play or
stop by Mendenhall to see what was going on for
entertainment throughout the week
Michele Myers, director of adult and commuter
services, believes that getting involved starts with
understanding that involvement doesn't mean you
have to devote every waking moment to a specific
organization.
"Student involvement can include meeting with
a faculty member, joining a study group before an
exam or even staying informed on upcoming campus
events said Myers.
Although those are a few non-traditional involve-
ment strategies, there are other ways to stay informed
about your surrounding campus community.
First, you can easily pick up an edition of The

for the next few weeks.
In this day and age of PCs and the prevalence of
the information superhighway, you are simply a few
clicks away from learning of guest speakers as well as
athletic events in the area.
One important aspect of involvement to remember
is time management. This is a skill that develops now
and you will carry with you throughout life.
Everyone here has specific goals for the future. As a
result, try to correlate those goals with activities outside
of your education.
"Try to find bridges where your experience in the
classroom relates to your experience outside of the
classroom said Myers.
For example, if you are a student majoring in
Criminal Justice, try applying for a position on the
campus honor board.
"It's unbelievable how many opportunities are out
there, if you only decide to look said Marianne Carow,
freshman. "ECU has so many organizations and groups
to chose from, there is definitely one that's right for
everyone
In the book entitled, "505 lips for Making the

of useful tips on becoming involved. Itis available
at most bookstores if you want to take advantage of
those tips.

Leslie Long
STAFF WRITTER
First down Pirates!
Don't you just love those
football games? Well, so
does one of the biggest
school organizations:
The ECU Ambassadors.
ECU Ambassadors is
an organization founded
in 1980 by the ECU
Alumni Association. It
consists of 75 students and two staff members who
work together to promote ECU through voluntary
services to the university, community and state.
Ambassadors serve as the official host students
for the university through the offices of Chancel-
lor Richard Eakin, Undergraduate Admissions,
Alumni Relations and Institutional Advancement
and numerous other departments and divisions
throughout the university.
Ambassadors work hard to balance their classes
with work, volunteering, Pirate football games
and annual Ambassador commitments such as the
Homecoming committee. Members also help in
recruiting potential football players, give campus
tours at freshmen orientation and Open House and
work at Commencement.
The organization's adviser, Carolyn Thompson,
also the assistant director of Alumni Affairs,
works along with Phillip Home, the associate vice
chancellor of Alumni Affairs to help organize and
guide the students.
According to Thompson, the Ambassadors'
increasingly hectic schedules have forced mem-
bers to become choosy when selecting events to
represent
"Because of the outstanding work our Ambas-
sadors have done in the past there is a tremendous
demand for their time and service Thompson
said. "We find ourselves in a position that forces us
to be even more selective with events we assist with

when you are an Ambassador;

Justin Bailey
PUBLIC RELATIONS COORDINATOR, AMBASSADORS
because there simply is not enough time in the
day. And our Ambassadors are students first
Members of the group say there are many benefits
to becoming an Ambassador, aside from being a
representative of the university. Ambassadors take
part in group retreats and also attend the annual
Ambassador convention.
"I've been on a zillion ECU-sponsored trips all
over the U.S said Justin Bailey, the Ambassadors'
current public relations
coordinator. "I've made
awesome friends all over
the world, from Califor-
nia to Great Britain
I've met my best friends
here at ECU through
Ambassadors
Ambassadors also
have the opportunity to
make special contacts while representing ECU.
"Ambassadors has enabled me to become friends
with Chancellor and Mrs. Eakin and several other
university officials Bailey said. "People look at you
differently when you are an Ambassador; you've
got connections and friends in places you don't
know
For the past two years, the Ambassadors have
taken home the Spirit Cup, an award given to
the student organization that donated the most
outstanding amount of food and money to charity.
The Ambassadors' plans for the upcoming year
will be to help out the university, community and
state while learning and bonding with each other
along the way.
Interested in becoming an Ambassador? You
must be a full-time student, possess and maintain a
cumulative GPA of 2.5, complete an application and
interview with the ECU Ambassadors Membership
Committee. Leadership skills and community service
are also emphasized. Ambassadors are required
to attend all general meetings which are held at
5:30 p.m. every Wednesday in Mendenhall Student
Center.
Each Tuesday in the Features section, we will
focus on one outstanding organization and describe its
goals and accomplishments. If you are interested in
having your organization profiled in TEC, e-mail us at

FEATURES EDITOR
In every organization, there are certain people
who go above and beyond the call of duty. For the
ECU Ambassadors, one student leader has set an
example only too few students follow.
Angie Lynch, a senior majoring in occupational
therapy (OT) has made an impressive resume
throughout her years at ECU. After graduating,
Angie has aspirations of attaining a master's degree
and working in the pediatrics division of OT in
third world countries.
Reflecting upon her years at ECU, Angie is truly
proud of what she has accomplished.
"I am just proud and happy that I can look back
at my goals and see them being met even though it
can be rough at times said Lynch. "It's ridiculous
to hear what people complain about in the U.S.
when these children have nothing and are loved by
no one. I will never look at life the same
Through Ambassadors, Angie feels she has been
given a number of wonderful opportunities. Over
the last three years, she has served as secretary for
two years, presented workshops on motivation at
the District III Convention, volunteered at local
food banks, given campus tours and participated
in flag football.
Although she is extremely active within the
Ambassador organization, she has also makes her
impressions in a number of other groups.
Currently, she is the president of Student
Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) where
she also served as vice president during her junior
year. Lynch has been inducted into Omnicron
Delta Kappa National Leadership Honor Society in
addition to the National Leadership Honor Society
and Gamma Beta Phi. A two year Chancellors List
recipient, Angie was also a National Resident Hall
Honorary during her first two years at ECU.
Her most enriching educational experience
has been traveling to Romania to help children
in orphanages.
. was truly life changing and the most fulfilling
thing I have ever done in my life said Lynch
Angle has one quote that she lives each day
teihng herself, "The happiest people do not neces-
sarily have the best of everything; they just make
the most of everything that comes along their way.
Happmess lies for those who cry, those who hurt,
hose who have searched, and those who have

Pick Of the Week: "Horrorscope" by Eve 6
Emily Little
FOUNTAINHEAD EDITOR
Good news for Eve
6 fans. "Horrorscope
the band's sophomore
album, is everything you
loved about the self-
titled debut and then
some.
Full of the same ener-
getic guitar-pop that
made the band's reputa-
tion, the new album is
a collection of cute, feel-
good tunes led by the
adorably nasal vocals
of committed redhead
Max Collins. The songs
are, of course, catchy
and memorable, because
that's what Eve 6 does.
But don't be fooled
into thinking this album
is just a repeat of the last
one. This is an improve-
ment on a working for-
mula. Eve 6 took an
already working sound
and made it better by
trying some new ideas.
For instance, they actu-
ally wrote a slow tune-a
sweet little farewell love
song called "Here's to
the Night something
conspicuously absent in
their catalog until now.
"Sunset Strip Bitch" dips
into a harder sound and plays around with computer-
ized vocals a little. And aside from the common
presence of traceable hooks and a continuous flow of
words, the songs on "Horrorscope" aren't interchange-
able.
These three guys have tossed punk in a centrifuge
with hard rock and pop and pulled out songs that
you don't mind having stuck in your head. And that
is no easy feat. The one disadvantage they have is
their lack of genius. They haven't come up with
anything unheard of, and there aren't any songs on
"Horrorscope" that stand out as the kind you repeat
over and over. The CD has replay ability as a whole
These three guys have tossed punk in a centrifuge with

Top parly schools named
BATON ROUGE, la. (AP) It's a list Louisiana
State University officials were desperately trying to
avoid, but instead, they came out on top -LSU has been
named the No. 1 party college in America.
The designation by The Princeton Review was
disheartening news to university officials still shaken
by the August 1997 death of an LSU student who
celebrated his acceptance into a fraternity with a night
of excessive drinking.
"I think the whole survey, from my point of view
would be very laughable if it didn't misinform people
about the university's environment Mark Emmert,
chancellor of the school, said Wednesday. "LSU is
no more of a party school than any other American
university
Last year's No. 1, Florida State University fell
to fourth.
The Princeton Review, which isn't affiliated with
Princeton University, ranks schools based on a survey
of 59,000 college students across the country.
The top 20 party schools, according to the Princeton
Review:
1. Louisiana State University
2. University of Alabama
3. University of Texas
4. Florida State University
5. University of Colorado
6. University of Tennessee

Prince William to attend university in Scotland
instead.
This album is only the beginning of a gradual
improvement we are likely to see from F.ve 6 in the
future. They were originally signed in high school,
when they showed potential, and ttiev appear to be
maintaining that spirit. The next album promises
to be even better.
In the meantime, you can catch the band live in
Greenville on September 9. Check TEC: or WXNR for

LONDON (AP)Prince William is to attend
Scotland's St. Andrews University to study art
history after taking a year off to work and travel,
royal officials confirmed Thursday.
St. James's Palace said William was "delighted
and relieved" after being accepted by the univer-
sity.
Like thousands of other British students, the
18-year-old prince received the results of his final
secondary-school exams-called "A" levels-on
Thursday. He received an "A" in Geography, a
"B" in History of Art and a "C" in Biology-solid
marks that surpassed those obtained by his father,
Prince Charles, and other members of the royal
family.
William, currently taking part in exercises with
the Welsh Guards regiment in Belize, received a
congratulatory e-mail from his father, the palace
said.
"1 know how hard William worked to achieve
these excellent results and I am very proud that he
has done so well Prince Charles said.
William, who graduated from Eton school this

year, is to is to study a four-year honors degree
course. The topics he will be taught include British
furniture, architecture, Renaissance Italy and
modern art.
St. Andrews, founded in 1411, is famed for its
historic buildings and the scarlet robes worn by its
students on ceremonial occasions. It boasts a secret
society called the Kate Kennedy Club, which was
founded in 1926 to honor the niece of the university
founder Bishop Kennedy. Every year, male society
members dress up as women in her honor.
"We have every confidence that St. Andrews will
offer Prince William the opportunity to continue his
education in a unique, nourishing and challenging
environment the university said.

Colleges strive to
help newcomers adjust
KANSAS CITY, Mo Ryan Broyles of Troy, Mo remembers being
Intimidated when he arrived as a freshman at Rockhurst University
two years ago.
Jt was just me and my stuff; there was nobody else here from Troy
he said. "I didn't know a soul
Every fall, thousands of college freshmen around the country
are dropped suddenly into a different place with new people, new
expectations and new social activities.
Now many colleges, including Rockhurst, where Broyles wUI be a
mentor to freshmen this fall, are doing more than ever to try to ease these
teenagers' transition from home to college campus.
College leaders around the country are realizing it's not enough to
just give young people a campus tour and some fun days of orientation
games, concerts and information fairs. They're figuring out that some
teens do better when they get help adjusting, rather than just being left
on their own to sort out how they fit in.
So at many colleges, administrators have extended and expanded
the old freshman standby, "orientation They've added mentoring
programs, freshman-only courses and dorms, and "first-year experience"
programs that get freshmen out into a college's city for bike tours, service
days and music nights.
College leaders hope that paying more attention to freshmen will
help prevent the problems - from excessive drinking and neglected
schoolwork to extreme shyness and homesickness - that sometimes
make freshmen call it quits before the year is out.
Freshmen deserve special attention, said Kathy Nasteff, director of
first-year experience at William Jewell College. The Liberty school offers a
freshman mentoring program, freshman housing, a survival guide and a
special course for freshmen called "The Responsible Self
"Everything that could possibly change in their lives changes. The
rooms they're in often are smaller than their walk-in closets at home,
and they're sharing it with someone she said, only half-joking. "They're
homesick. The academic program is tougher than they're used to. And,
sometimes, there's too much partying. So we try to intervene. Not hand
holding, but getting them help when they need it
At Rockhurst for the first time this year, 35 juniors and seniors,
including Broyles, will be social mentors to small groups of freshmen.
Broyles, 20, already has called the students he'll be working with. He
told them about the new "RU Social Crew" mentoring program, and that
if they have questions, he will get the answers.
So when the teens arrive next week at the Rockhurst campus, 53rd
Street and Troost Avenue, for the fall semester, they'll already know at
least one person, someone committed to smoothing their adjustment
to college life.
But the help won't end when classes start.
Up through the Thanksgiving break, Broyles and the other mentors
will meet with their groups and take them to campus activities and
Kansas City area events.

Girl uses wish from foundation to give to others
CHATTANOOGA. T� .�� � . . . �
CHATTANOOGA, Terni.
(AP)-It didn't take Uuren Smith
long to decide what to do with
all the things she bought during a
couple of shopping sprees granted
by the Make-A-Wish Foundation-
give everything away.
The East Tennessee foundation
whose mission is to grant wishes
of children with life-threatening
illnesses fulfilled Lauren's request
by giving her shopping sprees at
Toys-R-Us and Books A Million.
But instead of keeping her pur-
chases, the 15-year-old decided
to give them to patients at T.C.
Thompson Children's Hospital
Cancer Center, where she is also
a patient.
"A lot of the little kids don't
understand it when they have to
go through this said Lauren, who
was: diagnosed with Ewing's Sar-
coma after a tumor was discovered
on her brain last February.
"So I wanted to give something
back to them. When they are able
to smile or laugh, it makes their
day
At Toys-R-Us alone, Lauren
spent more than $800, buying
everything from Barbie dolls to
puzzles.
Lisa Stambaugh, director of
program services at Make-A-Wish,
said Lauren was the first person the
organization had encountered who
wanted to use his or her wish to
give to others.
"We were blown away by it
Stambaugh said.
Kandy Weigart, guest services
manager at Toys-R-Us, said employ-
ees at the store wanted to give
something to Lauren for her gen-
erosity. They suggested a store gift
certificate.
Not surprisingly, she said
Lauren wanted to know if she could
use it to buy more Hems for the
patients at the center.
Since being diagnosed with
cancer, Lauren, who will be a 10th-
grader at Girls Preparatory School
this fall, has undergone surgery and
has finished about half of a sched-
uled 42 weeks of chemotherapy.
Her mother, Shanna Smith, said her
chances of recovery are 90 percent
if she completes her treatment
regimen.
"This is a scary thing for her
Mrs. Smith said, "but she has han-
dled it better than I have. She has

ADJUST from page 4
The program has several aims: to help younger
students meet more people and become familiar
with the city and the school, and to give them social
alternatives to liquor-laced parties.
"The party is played up so much. What are you
going to drink?" if you don't drink alcohol, Broyles
said. "Kool-Aid and ice water? Freshmen have to
adjust to that. The social mentoring program really
targets the population that is trying to find friends
without compromising. You don't have to drink, or sit
in the dorm room and study and be a nerd
It's fairly easy for small, private schools like Rock-
hurst and Jewell to introduce mentoring programs
because they have just a few hundred freshmen.
But at large public universities, where thousands
of freshmen arrive each year, it's more difficult to
give them personal attention.
Administrators at the big schools do what they
can.
In the past few years, the University of Missouri-
Columbia has introduced voluntary "Freshman Inter-
est Groups which other colleges are replicating.
Billed as "a community within a community
each group has approximately 20 freshmen with the
same academic interests. They live in the same dorm
and take three classes together, as well as a one-credit
freshman seminar.
The freshmen spend time with a mentor professor
and a peer adviser, usually a junior or senior studying
a similar subject.
At the University of Kansas, freshmen take part
in a summer orientation day and "Hawk Week" the
week before school starts. On the orientation day, they
learn about the university's programs, set up their
class schedules and talk to older students who act as
mentors for the day.
Erin Carlson, 21, who graduated from KU last
spring and served as a mentor this summer and last,
said freshmen often wanted to know how much they
would have to study and what it was like to live in
a dormitory.
If the teens are intimidated by the mass of students
and the university's size, Carlson tells them: "No matter
what you need, there is always someone on campus
who can help you. The key is, you have to take the
initiative and find out where the resources are
But some college administrators are starting to
believe it's not smart to leave it to 17- and 18 year olds
to find help for themselves.
More and more colleges are offering a course for
freshmen that helps them adjust.
Baker University in Baldwin City, Kan requires
freshmen to take a one-credit, eight-week "First Year
Experience" course, the course uses a Baker-oriented
textbook that includes discussions of alcohol and drugs,
said Jim Troha, the university's dean of students.

Wallace wins in Michigan
Rusty Wallace won the Pepsi 400 in
Brooklyn, Mich. Sunday, but not without
controversy.
This time however, it didn't involve the
oft-maligned Wallace.
Wallace passed Ricky Rudd and Bobby
LaBonte with 15 laps to go. Rudd finished
second and LaBonte finished third. Dale
larrett came in fourth while johnny Benson
was fifth.
Along with Wallace's victory, the big
story of the day was the ongoing feud
between Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart.
After last week's race at Watkin's Glen,
where Stewart pushed Gordon into the
wall on a turn, the two engaged in a
shouting match in which Gordon swore
revenge.
During Sunday's race, Stewart lost con-
trol of the 20 car and wrecked Gordon
again.
Comets sweep Sparks
In its four years of existence, the WNBA
has only known one champion, the Hous-
ton Comets. With a 74-69 victory in Game
2 of the Western Conference Finals, the
Comets swept the Los Angeles Sparks and
earned a spot in the finals for a fourth
consecutive year.
Cynthia Cooper, playing in her final
season, paced the Comets, scoring 29
points in the win.
The Game 2 victory followed a Game
1 Houston win. The Comets won the first
game by 21 easily in Houston.
The Sparks finished the regular season
with the league's best record, 28-4.
In the Eastern Conference finals, Cleve-
land and New York are tied at 1 -1.

Tiger Woods made yet more golf his-
tory at the PGA Championships, Sunday.
Defeating Bob May in a three-hole playoff,
Woods became only the second golfer to
win three majors in one year, joining only
Ben Hogan in that elite club.
Woods also became the only golfer
since Danny Shute in 1937 to win con-
secutive PGA Championships.
Woods shot a 67 on Sunday to n'nish
with an 18-under 270.
Woods' final round charge was not
enough to shake May. The two finished
tied after 72 holes and faced off in a three
hole medal playoff.
"I don't feel disappointed at all May
said. "I played a good solid round of golf
and just fell a little short
"That will go down as one of the great
duels in golf history Woods said.

SPORTS EDITOR
Last week the Pirate football team changed the
pace of practice. Gone are the grueling three-a-day
practices that have been the teams way of life for
the week leading up to class. Wednesday, the team
began the one-a-day practice schedule it will use for
the entire season.
"It feels pretty good said junior Quarterback
David Garrard. "It feels a whole hell of a lot better
than three-a-days. But three-a-days we're fun this year,
everybody came out with the right mentality. We'll
carry this along into the season and hopefully we can
do some things this first game
The three-a-days, used mainly for conditioning
and fundamentals, took place in the mid-August
Greenville heat.
"It was a big thing at first but we had some cloud
cover at the end Garrard said. "The temperature
was down at the end and
that made us a little more
happy to practice
The opening of the
regular practice schedule
makes the practices more
convenient for the Pirates,
but no less demanding.
The coaches were less than
thrilled with the team's
effort on the first day.
"Typical, kind of dis-
tracted not real focused
said Head Coach Steve
I.ogan.
"It was a typical first-
day-of-school practice
said Defensive Coordina-
tor Tim Rose. "School was on their mind, change of
life was on their mind, change of schedule was on
their mind. We tried. It wasn't a great great day, but
it wasn't a bad day
The three-a-day schedule consists of two 60 minute
practices followed by an 80 minute session. The
regular schedule is made up of one two-and-a-half
hour practice.
"It's a shock to your system Logan said.
With the season opener at Duke 12 days away, the
focus of practice has shifted.
"We're still blocking and tackling and that kind
of stuff, fundamentals and we will be through (last
Saturday's) scrimmage Logan said. The next day after
that we will begin to look at Duke
"We're trying to get everyone focused and get an
understanding of where their supposed to be Garrard
said. "No more foul ups. It's time for us to start doing
our thing. Everyone's getting in the groove now and
making it happen
With only six defensive starters returning, the camp
offered younger players a chance to step up and fill the
holes on the depth charts.
"We're probably going to play more guys this year
than we played a year ago" Rose said. "Right now
we're very encouraged with what we see in terms of
effort and ability. We need some of the young guys
to get experience in a hurry and prove they can play
at Duke. But right now we're very encouraged with
our personnel
"Well the secondary, Jerome Stewart, Kelly Hardy
and the Adams twins have shown up really nicely
I-ogan said. "Hosea James is a redshirt sophomore that
looks like he's going to play some football. We've got a
few of them stepping up
"We're trying
to get everyone
focused and get
an understanding
of where their

On offense, the Pirates return 20 of their top 22
players from 1999. "We may be able to expand some of

not to have to start over and reinstall the offense, We

Not only are the coaches pleased with the experi-

W00dS Wins PGA title Olympic gymnastic squad
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP)-The challenge finally
arrived for Tiger Woods. All that did was bring out
a passion rarely seen, and a performance that ranks
among his best.
In a fitting conclusion to perhaps the greatest
summer of golf, Woods birdied the last two holes
in regulation and won the PGA Championship in
a playoff over Bob May, becoming the first player
since Ben Hogan in 1953 to win three majors in
one year.
This wasn't a runaway like the U.S. and British
! Opens. Not with the steely determination in his eyes.
; Not with sweat pouring down the side of his face. Not
the way he charged after putts as they fell into the cup,
and pumped his fists like never before.
The thrills didn't end Sunday until May, the most
unlikely of challengers, nearly made a 40-foot birdie
putt on the final hole of the three-hole playoff.
Woods blasted out of a bunker to 2 feet, and made
the putt for par.
It was the easiest shot he had all afternoon.
Woods now has won four of the last five majors,
his first in a playoff. By winning at Valhalla Golf Club,
he became the first player to repeat as I'GA champion
since Denny Shute in 1937, and the first since it went
to stroke play in 1958.
j Woods not only won the PGA. He now holds
the scoring record in relation to par in every major
championship, an 18-under 270 that allowed him to
get into the playoff.
Last month at St. Andrews, the 24-year-old Woods
became the youngest player to complete the career
Grand Slam, with an eight-stroke victory. In June, he
won the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach by 15 shots.
This was no less impressive.
"The fireworks started on the back nine Woods
said. "This is probably one of the greatest duels I've
ever had in my life. Hats off to Bob. He played his
heart out
May tested Woods like no one else in the last two
majors, taking the lead with a two-shot swing on the
second hole and never giving it up until the end.
"I think I have a big heart said May, who closed
with a 6-under 66. "People weren't expecting me
to do what I did. I think I proved to them thai I
can play golf.
"If I would have won, it would have been a dream
come true
Tied with Woods going to the 72nd hole, May-
holed an 18-foot birdie putt from the fringe that put
Woods in a perilous situation�a 6-foot birdie putt to
get into the playoff. It curled in on the left side, Woods
punching his fist and letting out a roar.
Woods took a one-stroke lead on the first playoff
hole, No. 16, but not until after May showed he wasn't
going away, hitting a 70-yard chip from the rough
that stopped inches from the cup. Woods tracked his
25-foot birdie putt, trotting after it and pointing at the �
ball as it dropped for birdie.
Both players made impressive par saves on the
17th, setting the stage for even more drama on the
18th.
Woods hit his drive well to the left and into a
sycamore tree. It dropped onto a cart path, bouncing so
high it hit the tree again before rolling down the path
onto some trampled dirt. He hit his approach into the
left rough, and his third shot into a bunker.
But May failed to capitalize. He hit across the
fairway into more rough, and his approach caught
the ridge on the horseshoe-shaped 18th green, some
40 feet away.
After Woods hit out of the bunker to 2 feet, May's
only hope was to make a putt that was as long as his
chances. It almost went in.
But this year�this game�belongs to Woods He
closed with a 67, his 15th consecutive round at par
or better in the majors. He has had at least a share
of the lead in 11 of the last 12 rounds in the majors,
unprecedented domination.
Hogan won the Masters, U.S. and British Opens
in 1953. He could not play in the I'GA because his
legs were too battered from a car accident, and the
PGA was held during the same week as British Open
qualifying that year;
Hogan never won another major. Woods is still
getting warmed up.
Woods won $900,000 to push his earnings to $6.69
million for the year, already breaking the PGA Tour
record he set last year. And he still has two more
months to play.
Thomas lijorn of Denmark had a 68 and finished
third, five strokes back at 13-under 275. He was among
five other players who looked like they might have a
chance to claim the Wanamaker Trophy when Woods
stumbled early.
Two-time Masters champion Jose Maria Olazabal
(69) and Australians Stuart Appleby (6v) and Greg
Chalmers (70) were another stroke back.
May and Woods came from the same junior golf
section in Southern California, although the 31-year-
old May was a star as Woods was just getting started.
Few could have guessed their paths would someday
cross at Valhalla, with a major championship at
stake.
BOSTON (AP)�As
Bela Karolyi goi
wanted.
He has the blend of young
and old he was looking for
when the Magnificent Seven
came out of retirement one by
one. He has the calm leadership
of experience and the eagerness
of youth.
Most of all, he has a team he
thinks can put the United States
back on the medals podium.
"I believe now we are
medal contenders Karolyi said
Sunday night after the Olympic
team was selected.
"We have a proud, strong,
very athletic team that can per-
form up to those standards. If
they perform to their potential,
they can win a medal
I.ured out of retirement last
November to revive a faltering
program, Karolyi caused a fire-
storm of controversy with new
selection procedures that essen-
tially allowed him to handpick
the team. Weighted scores
from trials (60 percent) and
last month's U.S. Gymnastics
Championships (40 percent)
were combined, but Karolyi and
his selection committee weren't
bound by then.
They could pick whoever
they wanted, regardless of
where the gymnast finished.
But when the dust cleared
at the end, no one in the arena
could disagree with the choices.
Elise Ray, Amy Chow, Kristen
Maloney, Morgan White and
Jamie Dantzscher�the first
live finishers�were all on the
team.
Dominique Dawes finished
seventh behind Vanessa Atler,
but her selection was a no-
brainer. Though the 23-year-
old only began seriously train-
"We have a proud,

OLYMPIC GYMNASTIC COACH
ing on May 1, she made the most
progress of anyone during the
trials process. Twelfth after the first
night at nationals, she climbed all
the way to fifth in Sunday night's
competition with a series of crisp,
clean, elegant routines.
Atler, on the other hand, wilted
under the pressure. She botched
every one of her routines Sunday
night, looking up at the roof at one
point as if to say, "What is going
on here?"
Though Karolyi made no secret
that Atler was his favorite�her
bubbly personality reminds him
of Mary Lou Ketton�he knew she
didn't belong on the team.
"She has a unique talent, but
talent alone is not enough he
said. "And when you weighed the
sturdiness she should have versus
the athletic performance she gave,
it wasn't convincing
Even Atler agreed.
"I almost had a sense of relief
because deep down I knew I
shouldn't be going. I knew I wasn't
ready she said. "It's just not my
day. Not my time
The other glaring omission was
Shannon Miller, who withdrew
after jamming her knees on her
opening vault Sunday night. Amer-
ica's most decorated gymnast held
out hope Karolyi would leave a spot
for her, but she'd given him no
reason to do so.
Still limited by a hairline crack

And like Ray and Maioney,
Chow performs some of the
toughest skills around. Only she
does them so effortlessly she
makes them look like something
out of ninth-grade gym class.
Dawes gives the United States
some badly needed star power.
She's America's first three-time
Olympian in women's gymnas-
tics since Muriel Davis, and
she's got seven medals from
the Olympics and the world
championships.
When she steps on the floor,
judges take notice.
"A lot of people thought it
would be Shannon because of
her saying she deserved to be on
the team Dawes said. "I didn't
think I deserved to be on the
team until I earned it, and that's
why I never said it. Being on the
1992 and '96 teams doesn't give
me the right to step onto the
2000 team. That is how I felt.

Whitey Ford
honored by Yankees
NEW YORK (AP�A half-century ago, Whitey Ford made one of the
more forgettable debuts in Yankees history. On Sunday, he was praised for
all he accomplished In pinstripes after that tint game.
Surrounded by fellow Hall of Famers Yogi Berra and Phil Rizzuto
and showered with gifts that included a new car, a mini-van and trips
to the Bahamas and Hawaii, the great left-hander was honored on
Whitey Ford Day.
"I haven't been this nervous since I pitched against Ted Williams
for the first time Ford told the big crowd before New York plaved
Anaheim.
It was on July 1, 1950, that Ford-who had joined the Yankees
system three years earlier�faced the Boston Red Sox in his debut at
Fenway Park.
Working in relief. Ford gave up five runs on seven hits and six walks
in 4 2-3 innings. Relatively unknown at the time, he was referred to as
Eddye" Ford in local newspaper accounts.
Edward Charles Ford went on to set team records for wins (236)
strikeouts (1,956), ERA (2.54), innings (3,170 1-3) and shutouts (45)'
He excelled in October, winning six championship rings as he set the
World Series record with 10 victories and broke Babe Ruth's mark bv
pitching 33 2-3 scoreless innings.
"I never knew Ruth was a good pitcher. I thought he was a lousy
pitcher that became a hitter Ford said.
After his first season with the Yankees-he won the clinching Game
4 of the 1950 World Series sweep against Philadelphia-Ford served two
years in the U.S. Army. He returned to pitch from 1953-67, earning the
nickname the "Chairman of the Board
"I've been a Yankee for 53 years and I'll be a Yankee forever " he
said. '
Ford, looking dapper at 71 with his white hair, has overcome two
bouts with cancer.
He had surgery in December 1994 to remove a cancerous tumor
behind one ear, and was diagnosed last November with a form of skin
cancer. By all accounts, he's doing fine these days.
Ford already had a plaque in Monument Park in left-center field and
his No. 16 was painted onto the field for the day along the firstand
third-base lines. Former teammates Luis Arroyo, Hank Bauer and Moose
Skowron joined Berra and Rizzuto for the half-hour ceremonies.
"I used to love to play ball behind him said Bauer, an outfielder
"He didn't walk anybody
The eight-time Ail-Star was 236-106 overall. His .690 winning
percentage is the highest ever for pitchers with at least 2(X) wins.
Ford recalled attending his first Yankees game when he was 9 years
old and watching Lou Gehrig and Joe DiMaggio. He said he sat in
the center-field bleachers that day, and drew a cheer when he waved
at that area.
"Little did 1 know that 12 years later I'd be on that mound he said
Its been 50 years since I first stepped on this field and it's still a thrill
every time I come back
As part of the celebration, a montage of Ford's highlights was shown
on the video board, including a tribute from the late Mickey Mantle
Fordtw� presented with several gifts, among them a 2001 Dodge
Stratus R-T Coupe and a 2O0O Ford Winstar mini-van
FO?.a?d h-S wifeoan' a,so reived the round-trip airplane tickets, a
36-inch television, a watch, a set of golf clubs, re-creations of his six World
series rings and a statuette commemorating his military service
c ll afdition' a baseba� "eW in New York was renamed "Whitey
Ford Field. '
Ford's son and daughter took part in the festivities. Always known
for his composure while pitching, Ford appeared to get choked up only
once when he remembered his son, Tommy, who died last year of a heart
attack shortly before Old-Timers Day.
In Tommy's name, a $25,000 donation was made to the Whitey Ford
Children's Foundation.
Moments later, Ford went to the mound and threw out the first
David Cone maki"8 f�SS' SP�ke fW SeC�ndS '� Yankees starter
It was on Yogi Berra Day-July 18, 1999-that Cone pitched a perfect
game against Montreal at Yankee Stadium.
"I told him to go out there and do something close to that today "
Ford said. �"
Cone did his best, striking out the side in the first inning and retiring
the first nine batters. He was pulled after six innings with a 3-0 lead and
the Angels rallied to beat the Yankees 5-4.
