Enrollment dip
Fall semester enrollment at ECU will be
about 17,850, the second-highest total in
University history but slightly lower than
officials had projected. Preliminary figures
released Aug. 25, put on-campus enroll-
ment about 2 percent below last year's
record of 18,222. ECU had expected a fall
enrollment of about 18,500.
Dr. Robert Thompson, director of plan-
ning and institutional research, said the
fall's total reflects fewer-than-expected
continuing freshmen and sophomores and
fewer graduate students. Thompson said
the drop in undergraduates maybe attrib-
utable to new academic performance stan-
dards for freshmen that went into effect
last year.
In addition to the on-campus enroll-
ment there are more than 900 students
enrolled in distance-education courses, an
increase of 1 75 from a year ago.
New marketing director
Clint Bailey, former director of new
media at the Barker Campbell Farley and
Mansfield Advertising agency in Virginia
Beach, has joined ECU as the University's
first director of marketing. Bailey will focus
on enhancing the University's reputation
throughout North Carolina and beyond by
working closely with the public relations,
publications and enrollment management
offices. Before joining the agency, Bailey

Campus buildings in need of renovation
ECU could receive $190.6
million for needed repairs
Nancy Kuck
The condition of several buildings
and facilities on ECU's campus, along
with increasing projected enrollment
numbers has campus officials push-
ing students to vote this in favor of
November's bond referendum.
A $3.1 billion University of North
Carolina (UNQcommunity college
bond bill was passed unanimously
by both houses of the 2000 N.C.
General Assembly. The public will
be able to vote on the bond during
the Nov. 7 election.
$2.5 billion of the bond will be
allocated for universities to recapture
capital dollars spent on flood relief
last year. The remaining $600 mil-
lion is appropriated to community
ECU would receive $190.6 mil-
lion-the third largest share of the
bond money in the UNC system. Two
universities that will receive a larger
sum include UNC-Charlotte and
North Carolina State University.
"We hope people understand the
importance of the bond referendum
said John Durham, director of public
University official say students
will benefit greatly once the referen-
dum is passed, the money will be
directed toward the construction
and renovation of academic facili-
ties on campus. It will also support
the university's ability to accom-
modate for increasing enrollment,
and will assist the university in
meeting modern building codes
"The facilities that are routinely
funded by student and faculty fees
such as parking lots, residence halls,
dining halls, athletic facilities and
the Student Health Center will not
be eligible for this bond money
Durham said.
There are several projects that are
planned to go in effect if the bond
is passed. These projects include
the construction of the Science
Technology Building adjacent to
the Howell Science Complex and
the renovation of the Allied Health
Building and Developmental Evalua-
tion Clinic Complex on the Health
Sciences part of campus.
The total estimated cost of con-
struction amounts to $102 million.
The remaining money would go
toward several renovation and con-
version projects of current facilities.
These buildings include Flanagan,
Rivers, Belk buildings and the Old
Cafeteria Complex. Additional library
and study space will also be provided
at the Brody School of Medicine.
"One of the nice things about the
bond is thatj it will allow the UNC
campuses to approach their construc-
tion needs in a more orderly way
because they will know how much
money they will have Durham said.
"In the past, it was hard to determine
how much money we had from the

U. of Arkansas (U-WIRE)-In
what police are calling a murder-
suicide, a University of Arkansas
student on Monday allegedly shot
and killed a professor and then
himself. It was the first day of the
fall semester.
During the university's third
press conference Monday night,
Chancellor John. A. White identi-
fied the victims as English professor
John R. Locke and graduate student
James Easton Kelly, of Marianna,
Around noon, two university
police officers arrived at Kimpel
Hall after someone put in a 911
call, Capt. Brad Bruns told the
Associated Press. The officers spoke
briefly with a man through the
door of an office building of a
faculty member. Moments later,
shots were rued.
Officers found both bodies
inside the office, and authorities
later identified the victims as Locke
and Kelly.
Following the shooting, classes
at Kimpel Hall and a nearby build-
ing were canceled as students and
faculty evacuated the building.
Kelly, who had been enrolled
on and off for 10 years in the
English and comparative literature
Ph.D. programs at Arkansas, was
dismissed from the program on
Aug. 21, White said. It was not
immediately clear what, if any, role
Locke had in Kelly's dismissal.
"By the late 1990s, Kelly had
enrolled for several consecutive
semesters and in each case he sub-
sequently withdrew White said.
"Based on his record, he was ulti-
mately dismissed, but was allowed
to continue taking courses as a
non-degree student
A university-wide forum for
students, faculty and staff will take

(U-WIRE)-The president of James
Madison University on Monday
asked a committee of university and
community members to examine a
weekend riot at a massive back-to-
school party.
Linwood H. Rose asked the

melee and make recommendations
on how to avoid a similar incident
in the future.
University officials "deeply
regret the incidentwe are deeply
concerned over the safety and
well-being of our students and the
residents of Harrisonburg and want
to take steps to assure that there
is not a repeat of this unfortunate
incident Rose said in a news
"We expect our students to be
good and respectful neighbors
and to obey the laws of the Com-
monwealth of Virginia he said.
"Those who do not should be dealt
with in accordance with the law
Early Saturday, police in riot
gear used pepper spray and gas
canisters to disperse an unruly
crowd of more than 2,000-mostly
JMU students-that petted officers
with rocks and bottles. Twenty
people were arrested and one officer
injured in the melee. Police said
they made 20 more arrests Saturday
Charges included public drunk-
enness, underage possession of
alcohol, breach of peace, and failure
to leave a riot after being advised
to do so.
The party, held in mostly stu-
dent-occupied townhouses within
walking distance of the campus, has
become something of a tradition at
JMU. In past years, police broke up
the parties without incident.
The Community Coalition was
formed last fall at JMU's request to
foster good relationships between
the university and Harrisonburg
residents. Members include people
who live near campus, local
law enforcement, rental property
owners, student leaders, city offi-
cials and members of the school

found near Biscayne Bay.
"Right away, this one looked a
little different said O'Meara, who
is based at the Florida Medical
Entomology laboratory in Vero
Beach. "But what was It?"
O'Meara wasn't all that sur-
prised to find a new mosquito in
southeastern Dade. After all, that
area, a prime spot for year-round
plant nurseries, was hit hard by
Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Many
new bromeliads were imported to
replace fields wiped out by the
storm, and some may have had
mosquito passengers, he said.

Reno rejects investigation of Gore fund-raising
WASHINGTON-The Justice Department will not
appoint a special counsel to investigate statements
Vice President Al Gore made to investigators about
his 1996 campaign fund-raising activities because
"there is no reasonable possibility" that a perjury case
could be made against him, Attorney General Janet
Reno said Wednesday.
"This goes to the heart of everything we care about
in this country, that you don't pursue a case where
there is no basis for concluding that you can make a
case Reno told reporters at a news conference.
Her decision marks the third time Reno has
rejected a formal recommendation from one of
her subordinates to appoint an outside counsel to
investigate Gore's role in 1996 fund-raising irregulari-
ties, including his participation in an event at a
Buddhist temple connected with illegal campaign
The step removes the politically damaging pos-
sibility of a high-profile investigation into Gore's
ethical behavior just as the presidential campaign revs
up for the crucial, final months before the November
The 1996 campaign fund-raising scandal provided
some embarrassing episodes in Gore's political career.
Not only was he associated with an event at the
Buddhist temple, home to some nuns who were used
to funnel illegal contributions from foreign sources,
but he also helped host a series of coffees on the White
House grounds for potential donors and made widely
criticized fund-raising calls from his office.
In a news conference to explain the phone calls,
Gore repeatedly declared that "no controlling legal
authority" had found the action was improper-
legalistic wording that the press and many critics
mocked as evasive.
Gore spokesman Chris Lehane said the Democratic
presidential nominee was "pleased by the Justice
Department's position. But Al Gore's focus remains
where it always has been, which is on using our
prosperity to help America's families
However, Reno's decision provoked furious criti-
cism from Republican members of Congress.
Indiana Rep. Dan Burton, chairman of the House
Government Reform Committee, who presided over
a series of investigations of Clinton administration
scandals, quickly announced he would subpoena
documents related to Reno's decision.
And Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter, like Burton a
Republican, who first disclosed the recommendation
for an outside counsel, said Reno's refusal to appoint
one "flies in the face of strong evidence" and "follows
a pattern of the attorney general's protecting the
vice president
Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush
was more circumspect.
"While it's clear that Al Gore engaged in a number
of questionable fundraising activities and gave the
FBI statements that continue to raise the issue of his
credibility, the American people are sick and tired
of all these scandals-and investigations Bush said
in a statement. He added, "The best way to put all
these scandals and investigations behind us is to elect
someone new
Robert Conrad Jr the head of the Justice Depart-
ment task force to examine campaign fund raising,
made the most recent recommendation for a special
counsel to pursue whether Gore lied under oath during
an April interview with investigators. During the
deposition, Gore said he did not believethe event at
the temple was a fundraiser.
Reno said the transcript of the interview, which
Gore released to the public after Conrad's recom-
mendation was leaked, "reflects neither false statements
nor perjury
"It's the labels where they disagree. And I reached
the conclusion that the vice president had not, based
on this record, failed to describe what the role in fund
raising was Reno added.
In the deposition. Gore said he believed the event
at the Buddhist temple was a "community outreach"
program in which a candidate mingles with potential
contributors to gain their favor without actually
soliciting money from them until later.

Evidence points to Russia sub salvage, not rescue
On the Web: www.ecu.edumendenhall
Hours: MonThurs. 8 am-11 pmFri 8 am-midnightSat noon-midnightSun noon-11 pm
MURMANSK, Russia (AP)-Day 8 of the fatal plight
of Russia's Kursk nuclear submarine produced a
hands-on look at a damaged escape hatch that may
not be serviceable, conflicting accounts about how
to proceed, and new discussions, but no definitive
answer about what went wrong with the Kursk to
send it crashing to the floor of the Barents Sea on
Aug. 12.
And, finally, the press releases following day 8
of the crisis produced more evidence that the divers
and submariners working to crack open the Kursk
are no longer on a mission of rescue, but one of
A day after the chief of Russia's Northern Fleet
acknowledged that the crew of 118 likely was dead,
Norwegian divers on Sunday descended more than
350 feet to the seabed to survey the Kursk.
They failed to open the damaged escape hatch
in the back of the attack submarine. Without that
access, a British mini-submarine deployed in the
region Saturday would be unable to dock with the
Kursk and enter the crippled sub.
Norwegian and Russian officials gave contradict-
ing assessment of how tough it would be to release
the hatch on the submarine.
Russian Deputy Prime Minister llya Klebanov said
the hatch was so badly damaged it would have to be
torn off. He said a crane on the Norwegian rescue
ship would be used to pull it off.
A Norwegian spokesman, however, said the divers
thought the hatch could be opened fairly easily. He
denied a Russian television report that a man had
been found in the airlock below the hatch.
The divers learned that a valve in the escape
hatch had been opened from the inside, Klebanov
said, apparently by a crew member.
"The hatch is not destroyed said John Lspen
Lien, a spokesman for the Norwegian armed forces,
told the Reuters news agency in Oslo. "We think
it should be possible to open It with a British or a
Russian rescue capsule
Russian officials said the rescue operations would
continue. But they indicated that their emphasis was
shifting to what caused the tragedy on the Kursk, one
of the navy's newest and most powerful submarines.
The navy said that most of the crew died Aug.
12 when the Kursk suffered a massive explosion,
apparently in the forward torpedo room.
"Water almost instantly flooded the submarine's
hull up to the fifth or sixth compartments Klebanov
said. "The crew in those sections died almost instanta-
neously and the submarine became uncontrollable
Klebanov said a World War II mine or a collision
with a foreign submarine were possible causes. But
experts inside and outside the navy view those
explanations with suspicion.
The U.S. Navy, which had two submarines in the
area Aug. 12, said none of its vessels was involved.
Klebanov said as many as three foreign submarines
were in the area.
The differences between Russian reports and
those from Norway were in keeping with a pattern
of confusion that has surrounded the Kursk. From
the time the accident was reported to the Russian
public-two days after it occurred-government and
military officials have offered conflicting, exaggerated
or just plain erroneous accounts of the Kursk's status.
In Moscow, meanwhile, President Vladimir Putin
delivered his most emotional remarks yet on the
"With sorrow in our hearts and, I do not exaggerate,
tears in our eyes, we are following all that is happening
in the Barents Sea he said. "The sailors are doing
everything they can to save their comrades
Attendance drops at Brent Road party, 374 people cited
RALEIGH (AP)-An intense police presence around
Brent Road near North Carolina State University-
reduced attendance dramatically at the area's annual
back-to-school parties, according to Raleigh police.
The Raleigh Police Department estimated the
highest number of party participants at any one time
was 700, dropping attendance at Saturday night's
parties to one-tenth its normal size, a department
release said Sunday.
An estimated 500 police officers, most from
Raleigh but others from state agencies, kept the peace
along Brent Road and enforced a recently-approved
nuisance party ordinance.
While there were no confrontations between
officers and partygoers, 374 people were cited for 438
law violations, police said. Charges included driving
while impaired, sale and possession of marijuana,
possession of open containers of alcohol and motor
vehicle violations.
I ifty-one of those cited were arrested and taken
to the Wake County magistrate for processing, police
The additional police came out over the weekend
after noise and litter complaints from some homeown-
ers and hundreds of alcohol-related citations over the

Teacher shortage could bring targeted salary increase
RALEIGH (AP)-As another school year begins,
North Carolina's school systems are going through
their annual scramble to fill hundreds of teaching
But that scramble gets worse each year as the
chronic shortage of math, science and special educa-
tion teachers spreads into areas such as Knglish and
Part of the problem, state school officials say, is
the steady increase in the school-aged population,
the reduction of class sizes and colleges that produce
only about a third of the 9,000 new teachers the state
needs to hire each year.
Others say there's more to it-money.
"Part of this is a problem of our own creation
said John Dornan of the Public School Forum of
North Carolina. "Part of it is a one-size-fits-all salary
"Like it or not, there is the law of supply and
demand he said. "We are deluding ourselves if we
think we can cling to a salary schedule that doesn't
recognize differences in fields
The forum, a partnership of business, education
and government groups, has been a driving force
behind school reform efforts.
Since the 1930s, teachers across the state have
been hired locally and paid by the state, though
school systems can supplement salaries. The state pay
has been based on a scale that recognizes experience,
but little else.
Gov. Jim Hunt made raising that pay scale to the
national average a centerpiece of his 1996 re-election
campaign. Raises approved this year were the last step
in that four-year program to increase salaries.
Still, the salary scale does not recognize the difficulty
in attracting science and math teachers, Dornan said.
Nor does it pay a premium for technology-related jobs,
another area where schools compete directly with
higher-paying private industry.
"If there was ever a time when you could break
people away from the single salary schedule, it should
be now Dornan said. "We don't have enough money
to raise all the salaries for 76,000 teachers, but I
can't think of another business that pays all of their
white-collar employees the same thing
Dornan frequently uses a college analogy when
addressing the issue before business and education
"If you asked a medical school doctor at Chapel
Hill to go on the same salary schedule as their English
faculty, how many people do you suppose you'd have
teaching medicine?" he asked.
The idea of premium pay has been quietly discussed
around the Legislature as a possible solution to attract-
ing teachers at low-performing schools.
Those schools, mostly in poor, rural counties,
traditionally have had difficulty recruiting teachers
because they cannot afford the large supplements or
other benefits of nearby urban areas. And beyond the

Gates Foundation awards $40 million for measles vaccine
BALTIMORE (AP) -The Bill and Melinda Gates
Foundation awarded dirs 40 million Monday to
Johns Hopkins University and the University of
Maryland for development of a new measles vaccine
that would protect babies younger than 9 months.
Newborns are protected against measles by
antibodies from their mothers, but levels of those
antibodies drop over time. Low levels of the mother's
antibodies neutralize the effectiveness of the measles
vaccine, the universities said in a statement.
The World Health Organizations recommends
that the current vaccine be administered when
babies are at least 9 months old, but that leaves a
window of vulnerability until that age.
"A safe, effective vaccine for younger infants will
save lives and help eradicate measles worldwide by
dramatically decreasing the size of the susceptible
population said Dr. Diane E. Griffin, chair of
molecular microbiology and immunology at the
Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, which will
split the funds with the University of Maryland School
of Medicine.
"Not only is this a wonderful opportunity for us to
help solve an important public health problem, it is a
testament to the exceptional quality of our researchers
said Dr. Donald E. Wilson, University of Maryland vice
president for medical affairs and dean of the School
of Medicine.
According to the World Health Organization, about
1 million children die from measles each year.
Previous attempts to develop a vaccine for younger
infants have not been successful, but scientists involved
with the project believe that previous obstacles can be
overcome with technological advances.
Researchers at the University of Maryland Center for
Vaccine Development will investigate the potential of a
new "DNA vaccine Researchers there have experience
in creating oral and nasal spray vaccines, which would
be easier to administer than an injection.

This newspaper you are
reading right now belongs
to all of you who take the
time to read it.
And we invite everyone to

TEC would like to take this opportunity to extend an invita-
tion to every member of our campus and non-campus com-
munity. We invite each and every student, faculty member
and administrator to read our newspaper and tell us what
we're missing. No we're not looking for insults. We're looking
for news.
So far, this semester has shown us police brutality, one
careless ex-SGA member and more assaults than we'd like
to admit. But what about the stories that don't get into our
paper? The ones that you the reader hear about every day?
We are your student newspaper. Our job is to cover the
news that YOU make happen. The only way we can do that
effectively (and on-time) is if you meet us half way. Sure our
job as journalists is to hunt for the stories. But let's face it-we
at TEC are students just like the rest of you. We have classes,
homework, athletic and social engagements to keep up with,
on top of making sure we keep YOU informed. Unfortunately,
there are days we miss great stories because no one ever
tells us.
The point is,7TCdoes not just belong to the people that
work in our office every day. In fact, this newspaper you are
reading right now belongs to all of you who take the time
to read it.
And we invite everyone to be a part of it. If you see or hear
news happening, or think you've got an interesting idea for a
story that you think we should cover, tell us!
So send us an e-mail, call us, write us, fax us. Walk over to
the Cashier's Office, take the stairs up to the second floor and
come talk to us. We are listening.
Top 11 reasons for doing community service as an undergraduate
(Knight-Ridder Tribune)-Community service is not
just good for the hearts of college undergraduates, it
Is also good for every part of them, including their
wallets. Here are the top 11 reasons that undergradu-
ates should consider community service an essential
part of their education.
Number 11: It is an inexpensive and effective way
to get dates, or at least make friends.
Volunteering-instead of attending awkward mixers,
lame icebreakers and the dreaded singles bars-is so
cheap and useful that 20- and 30-year-olds have
established volunteer organizations in Washington;
Stowe, Vt and Minneapolis, Minn called Singles
Volunteers. No awkward blind dates or fix-ups or
rejections based on superficial criteria. You get to
interact in an environment that does not focus
entirely on your relationship. Even without such a
formal organization, volunteering is undoubtedly an
excellent way to meet new people, perhaps including
a significant someone.
Number 10: Future employers look for it on
resumes, even for summer jobs and internships.
Personnel officers at major corporations will you
tell you experiences in the real world carry a lot of
weight. The ability to maintain a high GPA while
having some substantial community service experi-
ences may get you a high-paying job in November of
your senior year, while your friends who are too cool
to do community service are getting ready to panic the
following May. Too many college students and recent
graduates become trapped in this paradox: You can't
get into a career without experience and you can't get
experience without getting into the career.
Number 9: It is a great way to explore career
Working for a nonprofit does not limit you to
teaching or mentoring children. Nonprofits need the
skills of any professional field you might choose,
including public relations, graphic design, architectural
drawing, finance, personnel, managerial supervision
and scientific research. You may not be totally com-
mitted to the cause of the organization, but you
can see if you like doing the type of professional
work they need done. Why wait until you finish your
undergraduate, or even graduate, program to find
out if you like the kind of work you can experience
through community service?
Number 8: Most graduate schools like it.
While on the subject of finding the right career,
most graduate school programs take into account real-
life experience in their admission decisions. Extensive
community service might be the deciding factor for
law, business and public administration schools.
Number 7: It increases your chance for added
scholarship help in your junior and senior years.
Dwelling on the selfish payoffs may seem incongru-
ous to community service purists, but scholarships
are available to students who have demonstrated
leadership and a desire to make a difference. Some
may be offered by the institutions you attend. Even
more are offered by outside service organizations and
the national offices of the Greeks.
Number 6: You can get academic credit for it.
More and more colleges are giving academic credit
for community-based learning. The most maligned
of all college courses, freshman English, can be made
not only bearable but a real learning experience if the
instructor requires 20 hours of community service to
use as the material for your writing activities. It beats
writing "what I did last summer" or "who am I" essays.
This applies to all courses that have a community
service component. Professors who use community
experiences in their courses are likely to be more
concerned with students, more committed to relating
the material to the real world and less likely to give
mindless tests.
Number 5: Students who do it have higher grades,
are less like to put all kinds of bad things In their
bodies and more likely to graduate on time than
those who do not.
This reason may appeal to your parents and
authority figures more than you, but that is because
they have more life experience than you. Several
studies have tentatively demonstrated the effects
described above.
Number 4: It makes for great conversation with
people you meet for the first time.
Community service provides you with an all-
inclusive opportunity when you are meeting new
people, whether the Chancellor, a professor, the
boss, a potential employer or a peer. Let's say you
are talking about your experience as a mentor. If the
new acquaintance has never been a mentor, you have
something to tell. If the new acquaintance has been a
mentor, you have something share.
Number 3: It gives you a chance to learn about
the real world
Unless you are planning on a career as a professor,
classroom, readings, lectures and tests do not allow
you to experience most of the world you will face
for the rest of your life. Learning the details that
will confront you when you work in a community
center or middle school or at a United Way will give
you in-depth knowledge that you can transfer to
other settings, even the business world. Acquiring
knowledge through a community service experience
provides more depth and integration in your mind
than reading, listening and discussing.
Number 2: It allows you to practice skills you will
need in other settings.
Community service is like a minor league experi-
ence for you to develop life and career skills. To
succeed in the majors, you will need general skills
like working with people from diverse backgrounds,
performing in a team, communicating effectively and
problem solving. You can also develop specific skills
related to your career, whether it's putting together a
newsletter, teaching kids or analyzing data through
spreadsheets. You will be able to start at the very
beginning doing the nitty-gritty. If you stick with it
and gain respect from those at the agency, you will be
able to take on more management and policy roles.
You may continue to stuff envelopes in the marketing
department at your local United Way, but you could
be given a chance to present ideas for advertising or
suggest mailing lists.
Number 1: You will experience at a young age the
joy of helping others in a sustained way.
You probably have already had that warm and
fuzzy feeling from helping out someone. Think about
having it on a sustained basis every week so you
can reflect upon it six months or six years later.
Community service in college will alert you to the joys
that, no matter how many bad or good things happen
to you later in life, you can return to and continue
to make a difference.
I hope I have not oversold you on community
service. It can be addictive. No more than an average of
10 hours a week between the first and 12th week of the
semester is recommended. Done in moderation and
with responsibility, community service is the best way
to explore yourself, your career and society.

Play-for-pay issue is study in black, white
(Knight-Ridder Tribune)-If perception is truth,
then what does this tell us?
A recent poll shows that 25 percent of white
Americans think college football players should be
paid, compared to 69 percent of blacks and 66 percent
of other minorities.
The poll, conducted by the firm Portrait of America,
shows wide disparities in the way blacks and whites
view college athletes, pay and academics.
Forty-one percent of black Americans think football
players should be allowed to study a special curriculum,
but few whites-15 percent-gree. The difference also
was large when people were asked whether special
tutors should be provided for athletes-81 percent of
black respondents said yes, half the whites said no.
The poll's findings seem to say this: Whites hold
the idea that college football players-many of whom
are black-should be content to receive an expensive
education for free. Minorities don't think education
should be the only privilege available to athletes.
Like affirmative action-another thorny, compli-
cated subject usually divided along racial llnes-pay-
for-play and extra academic assistance create a split
because whites and blacks have different Ideas about
opportunity in this country.
"I'm a middle-aged white guy said Louis Sohn,
a spokesman for Portrait of America, "so ifs difficult
for me to make a judgment on what a 21-year-old
black kid from Alabama feels is his opportunity.
The perception of opportunity in this country is
Wow! Did you see him compute that cosine?
College athletes should be paid, and that has
nothing do with my perception of opportunity, but
rather economics. It's unrealistic to expect college
athletes to watch while everyone but them makes
The 100,000-plus fans who fill Michigan Stadium
come for football, not advanced trigonometry. So
why should the featured product be excluded from
the rewards?
Schools and the NCAA preach that a free education
is a sufficient benefit, but their licensing and television
deals grow absurdly large because of the personalities
and accomplishments of the players.
Some college coaches make $1 million a year,
but somehow it's ridiculous that the people actually
playing the game might want a little piece of the
This is not meant to devalue a college degree. But
many students are in college with the sole intent of
making money. Why would we expect athletes to
be any different?
Isn't good pay for good work something all of us,
black or white, can agree with?
But in supporting pay for college players, blacks
are guilty of some faulty perceptions. Too many black
parents and children think their best contribution to
society will be with a basketball or football. Too many
preach athletics as a means to an end, and not just one
of several ways a living can be earned.
Too many of us have gotten the idea that becoming
a doctor or a lawyer is less attainable than becoming
a pro athlete, which is much more improbable. Just
consider the ratio of lawyers to NBA players.
Outrage and hypocrisy over MSU case
In the past few weeks, academic standards have
caused a stir after two highly publicized Michigan
State recruits ran into problems.
Basketball star Zach Randolph of Marion, Ind was
granted a waiver to play at MSU as a freshman, even
though he fell 20 points short of the necessary SAT
score. But wide receiver Charles Rogers of Saginaw was
denied the chance to play football this fall because he
didn't meet the minimum score on the ACT coUege
entrance exam.
Randolph's case resulted in a public outcry. Many
people didn't think he deserved to be eligible. No
matter that he took the SAT each tune it was offered,
improved his grade-point average significantly his
senior season, and didn't hint at going to the NBA
when he hadn't passed the test.
There is underlying hypocrisy in those who find
fault with the NCAA's decision to let Randolph play.
Their hollering about academic standards might not
have been so loud had Randolph, a top-five national
recruit, gone to a university they loved.
And how studious do we expect Randolph and
other athletes to be when we invent things like
30-game basketball schedules and month-long tourna-
ments? At 18, 19 and 20 years old, student-athletes
are supposed to balance it all without complaint or
need of help.
It shouldn't seem unusual for athletes to need
special academic assistance. Athletes are not normal
students. We never treat them that way, and we
never will as long as we pay money to see them. How
many of us would be sympathetic if a star player
missed a championship game because he or she had
a history exam?
Here's the sentence nobody wants to hear, but
it has played out before our very eyes almost daily:
College athletics is a business. Well, more like a
sweatshop, because the workers don't get paid.
The poll shows the nation is divided in a basic way,
between haves and have-nots. Blacks historically have
been denied opportunity, so athletics seem to hold
more stature for them. Since the majority has indeed
ruled, their view is more inflexible.
The commonality, though, is that both sets of
people need to be more realistic.
Fictional campus tour tells truth about student
Welcome all incoming students! My name is Steve,
and I will be your tour guide for this late orientation to
ECU. Please follow me up through campus. Everyone,
gather around. On the right, you will see the Sonic
Plaza in front of the library. As you can see, ECU is so
overflowing with student money, that they decided to
spend a wad of cash on a moronic art display that is
guaranteed to make you laugh at the administration
for even proposing it.
Here we are in the middle of campus, and as you
can see we have alot of beautiful trees. As we keep
moving towards East Campus, we pass the Wright
Place. If you have signed up for a meal plan, you will
be able to eat here about twice before you run out
of declining balance. I went to buy a bottle of water
and it cost over a dollar. At this price, to drink what
a doctor recommends as eight glasses a day, it would
cost about $240 a month, slightly higher than my
current rent and utilities.
Do we have any rich kids here from up North?
YesI see your hands going up everywhere. Since
there has been a substantial increase in tuition and
fees, it is clear that you will be the only ones who will
be able to afford to go here in the future. The ECU
administration has determined that us poorer in-state
kids can't generate as much profit for the school as
you do, so we will be gradually phased out.
Here we have Dowdy Student Stores. This is where
you will purchase your text books for at least ten times
what you paid for them. But don't worry, the profits
all go to pay for scholarships for people who don't
even need them. Heck, my room-mate used his last
year to buy new stereo equipment! I guess that's a
liberal definition of educational expenses.
As we keep walking, we will pass the College Hill
dorms errrexcuse meresidence halls. Here on the
left is Jones Hall. This dorm was great when I was there
as a freshman! When my Mom came and visited me,
she said they were worse than her dorms at Michigan
State in the 1960s! But I didn't care. Another fact,
during Halloween '97, somebody defecated in front
of my room on the first floor hall and it took an
entire week for housekeeping to get rid of the smell!
I know what you're asking yourselveswhere do I
sign up?!
Now gather around y'all. ECU is encouraging
people to live in the residence halls by destroying all
resident's parking lots. As the University expands, it
will engulf all of Greenville's off-street parking, and
eventually consume all of Greenville with a mixture
of musical buildings and tacky sculptures. Currently,
we do not currently generate enough profit from
commuters to buy each of our trustees a brand new
Rolls Royce, so we will charge commuter students
nearly $200 for permits to spaces that don't even

California center will
explore marijuana's
therapeutic potential
SAN DIEGO (AP)-The University of California, San Diego will
soon begin trials on medical marijuana at the nation's first research
center designed to explore the drug's therapeutic potential.
Doctors announced the Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research
on Tuesday as part of the state's effort to set medical guidelines
following the voter-approved medical marijuana law.
The center, headquartered in San Diego, will begin distributing
grants to conduct clinical trials at universities and research centers
throughout California as early as January.
The studies will look at whether marijuana is a safe alternative
for treating certain kinds of medical conditions and the best ways
to administer it, such as through pills, patches or sprays.
"Our job is to show if these products are helpful and we can
answer that definitively said Igor Grant, the center's director and
professor of psychiatry at UCSD.
Gov. Gray Davis has already approved $3 million to fund
the program's first year while legislation calls for a three-year
program. The center was set up in large response to Proposition
215, the 1996 state initiative allowing seriously ill patients to
grow and use marijuana for pain relief, if they have a doctor's
The U.S. Supreme Court's Tuesday order barring an Oakland
club from distributing the illegal drug for medicinal use will not
affect the research center, said Grant.
"Our program involves medical research. And research
protocols will be reviewed both by state and federal agencies,
so we don't anticipate this will interfere with what we're trying
to do he said.
While the court's 7-1 vote becomes the latest development
in a conflict between Proposition 215 and federal narcotics laws,
Grant said it highlights the need for research and to find the safest
way to prescribe marijuana.
Measures similar to the California initiative have passed in
Alaska, Arizona, Hawaii, Maine, Nevada, Oregon and Washington
State Sen. John Vasconcellos, who pushed for medical
marijuana, penned the program in 1996 but initially faced

Get together with a person who has skills

talents. Listen to each other. That's the most
important part.
Taurus (April 20 May 20)

Libra (Sept. 23 Oct. 23)
You have a busy schedule, full of little
details. Answer those calls and get that
stack of papers off your desk. Don't just
dump them into a drawer, unread. Some-
thing important might be in there.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 Nov. 21)
You will have pleasant, imaginative, cre-

have happened.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 Dec. 21)
You're in a good frame of mind to learn.
A little competition could motivate you. Pull
yourself up off the couch and out into the
world. Something you can find will give you
the edge over that annoying know-it-all.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 Jan. 19)
You could advance your career soon.
Travel may be involved, and that could be
interesting. You may just have to take what
you're already doing someplace where it
needs to be done.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 Feb. 18)
You're smart and quick at figuring things
out. Get your money in order so you know
how much you can spend. You're lucky and
you're talented. The hard part is gathering
your resources, and that's certainly do-able.

I � OODWARD, PaRoute 45 meanders
Li through Centre County, a state forest
vw and small towns, and alongside farms
complete with Amish buggies. A rural paradise.
But 30 miles east of State College, Pa a different
kind of heaven springs from these hills. A paradise
of massive wooden ramps, winding dirt trails,
pool-size concrete bowls and foam pits, it is the
promised land for skateboarders, inline skaters
and BMX bikers.
You've arrived at Woodward Camp, the nation's
premier training ground for bladers, bikers and
boarders. It's a summertime mecca for teenagers
and twentysomethings, some of whom already have
professional sponsorship, advertising contracts and
X Games fame.
"You can find skaters all over the world, ask them
and they know what Woodward is said pro inline
skater Andre F.nglehart, 19, of lnsdale, Pa.
Since 1970, Woodward has been the hot spot
for gymnastics, attracting Olympic-caliber athletes
and coaches, as well as novices, to train and teach
at its state-of-the-art, 425-acre site.
But in 1982, Woodward also began welcoming
athletes whose movements were less tumble, more
rough-and-tumble. Now, 750 campers from ages 7
to 17 arrive each week from Memorial Day to Labor
Day, with any number of visiting pros there, too.
"Ten or 15 years ago, you were a renegade, you
were a derelict if you were engaged in this kind of
activity said Steve Haas, director of operations at
Woodward. "Now, it's cool
That is due to national TV exposure on ESPN's
X Games, being held in San Francisco through
tomorrow, and NBC-TV's Gravity Games, now in
their second season. Not to mention that boarders,
bikers and bladers are regulars on Mountain Dew
soft-drink commercials.
With the sports' increasing popularity, Wood-
ward, too, has become famous, appearing in several
Adidas commercials and forming a partnership with
Disney this summer that shows camp activities
online via streaming video.
"1 don't know of a place that's more respected and
more revered in the action-sports genie said Ron
Semiao, a vice president at ESPN, which announced
Friday that it was discussing with Woodward
officials a chain of network-sponsored sports camps,
modeled after and run by Woodward.
Given the stereotype of boarders and bladers as
vandals who destroy private property, curbs and
park benches, Semiao said Woodward "provides
the athletes a place to train and a place to be
Haas said people were realizing that "for those
kids who don't play football or baseball or basketball,
this is an individualized sport
Ability and creativity are the only limits to
what a person can accomplish here, said F.nglehart
and pro skater Mike Bennett, also 19 and from
Lansdale. With their own sponsors and advertise-
ment contracts, this is their fourth summer at
Woodward, though no longer as campers.
"I used to play baseball for six or seven years,
and I hated being on a team Englehart said. "I
hated being dependent on other people. Now, it's
on me
"Ten or 15 years ago, you
were a renegade, you were
a derelict if you were engaged
in this kind of activity Now, it's

Sweat-streaked bodies whooshed by in whirling,
twirling aeronautic motion on a recent afternoon of
organized chaos at Woodward.
Near the cafeteria, freestyle bikers performed midair
wheelies. Helmeted skateboarders soared, feet flying In
intricate 180-degiee kick flips. Inline bladers slid and
did grinds along the metal edge of a steep ramp before
plunging down to its curved belly.
A few feet away, just past a line of staff cabins
nicknamed "the Old Folks Home 13-year-old Ian
Saron, a camper from St. Petersburg, Fla carefully
walked his bike toward Woodward's main office.
Scrawled above the front wheel, on the white
frame, was an autograph from Mat Hoffmana BMX
legendprotected under peeling plastic wrap. The
biking pro had visited the week before with the Tony
Hawk Gigantic Skatepark Tour, which drew 2,000
"He's one of the best dirt bikers in the world
said Saron, patting the message, "Ian, Rise High and
Hoffman's signature. "And he's nice, too
The pros are definitely a plus, campers said.
"Last week, I got torn up on a long jump said
17-year-old Rick Bernard, sitting astride his bike decked
out in knee and elbow pads and a black helmet covered
from crown to base with inch-long steel spikes. "I ate
it. But the pros gave me props (for) getting up and
going at it again
Woodward camp in Pennsylvania allows young athletes
engaged In extreme sports to follow that path in the
safest possible enviroment. (file photo)
Mostly, word of mouth is still how Woodward's
reputation spreads to the more than 10,000 board-
ers, bladers, bikers and gymnasts who arrive each
summer from 50 states and 23 countries. The intense
training campers receive, the throngs of visiting
pros and Olympic medalists (as many as eight some
weeks) make the almost $700 parents plunk down
each week worth it-even if they're not exactly sure
what their children do here.
"I must admit that I am one of those parents who
chooses not to watch things that I think are going
to break his neck said Wyncote, Pa mother Nancy
Brockmon, whose 16-year-old son, Tim, attended
Woodward for inline skating this summer. "I had a
little hesitancy. But a traditional camp didn't seem
like the right setting for him. He wanted something
challenging (and) Woodward has such a reputation
for safety and professionalism
Before campers can even hit the ramps, they
must undergo a three-task skills evaluation in either
biking or skating that ranks and places them in
age-appropriate training groups.
Woodward's trainers and infirmary nurses have
seen casualties ranging from cuts and bruises to
ankle sprains and broken collarbones. Staffers said
some campers had arrived injured but still hoped

Diet expert urges to commitment to fitness
Campus nutritionist
offers services, advice
HIs&Her Websites
Maura Buck
While the freshman 15 looms in the
back of millions of college students'
minds, ECU Nutritionist I.aura Hartung
offers a range of services as well as advice
to help all students stay healthy.
"Ihe first mistake college students
make in regard to diet Is that they often
don't practice moderation Hartung
said. "Moderation in everything you eat
and drink is important when it comes
to weight control
According to Hartung, students need
only 210 additional calories a day to gain
the extra 5 pounds. That is equivalent
to an extra chocolate glazed donut at
325 calories or two 12 ounce light beers
at 300 calories.
This extra consumption, coupled
with decreased exercise, aid in gaining
extra pounds.
"When it comes to activity, students
often replace the time they used to
spend on a physical activity with time
studying Hartung said. "If a student
played 1 and a half hours of field hockey
two times a week and replaced that
activity with studying once they hit
college a student could gain 14 and a
quarter pounds without even changing
their diet
Though staying healthy has a great
deal to do with weight, there are other
factors to consider in maintaining a
healthy existence as well as longevity.
"Moderation in every-
thing you eat and drink is
important when it comes to
weight control
Laura Hartung
Building healthy bone structure starts
early in life, which means as students,
we should consume 3-4 glasses of milk
a day.
"Eighty-two percent of college
females and 55 percent of college
males do not meet the recommended
1000-1300 mg of calcium intake per
day Hartung said.
Taking care of one's bone health early
on can prevent osteoporosis and hip
fractures in the future. Over consump-
tion of items such as animal fat and
soda can actually aid in deteriorating
healthy bones. Calcium is also linked to
weight loss due to its ability to stimulate
fat-burning and inhibit fat storage.
Cancer prevention is yet another
health concern.
"According to the American Cancer
Society 30-70 percent of all cancer deaths
are diet related Hartung said.
Hartung suggests consuming 5-9
servings of fruits and vegetables to help
prevent cancer.
One crucial way to start taking a more
active role in your health is becoming an
educated health consumer.
"Become aware that the Hardee's
Monster Burger has 67 grams of fat, and
that the Blooming Onion at Outback
has 160 grams of fat and 2100 calories
Hartung said.
All humans require a balance of
Goals that work
1. Five a day-eat five fresh fruits
and vegetables a day
2. Be open-minded to trying new
3. Eat a more plant-based diet
4. Eat at least three meals a day
and three small snacks
5. Limit fried foods
6. Exercise three to six days a
week (aerobicstrength training)
" has
fantasy sports like foot-
ball and baseball where
you carry on seasons of

food whether it is involving fruits and
vegetables or monosaturated fats. Read
all food labels to educate yourself on the
ingredients in products.
Hartung offers nutritional counseling
upon request or upon referrals from the
Student Health Center or the Center for
Counseling and Student Development.
Students with nutritional concerns (i.e.
weight loss, anemia, diabetes, and eating
disorders) can call her at her Jones Hall
local ion at 328-2632 rot an appointment.
In addition, she suggests calling Kari
Brown, Assistant Director at the Student
Recreation Center at 328-6387 to help
organize an appropriate exercise plan.

Even library lizards
must study sometimes
Marie Griffin
You have stayed up all night
thanks to the help of a combination
of caffeine and sugar to prepare for
the first examination. After hours of
labor, your mind goes blank when
the test is finally placed in front of
you. You scratch your head and try
to read the questions; they might as
well be composed in Arabic.
Kven the straight "A" library
lizards have probably had a few bad
experiences with tests. Por some
students, the prospect of taking a
test is more precarious than being
thrown in a pit of vipers.
There is no easy answer in terms
of conquering Vhs? woes of test
taking; however, there are some
useful strategies which may help.
"Know yourself said Shelly
Myers, director of Adult and Com-
muter Student Services. "Know
your highest energy level. Are you
a morning person or an evening
person? What type of learner are
you? A visual learner or an auditory
Both the Academic Support
Center and the Adult Students
and Commuter Student Services
offer strategies to help students
enhance their study skills. Although
everyone has different methods, it
is probably helpful for most learners
to review material daily and ask
questions about the material.
Other students prefer to copy
notes every night or participate in
study groups to help them learn
and understand class.
Different populations such as
adult learners, students with dis-
abilities and or disadvantages stu-
dents may have different needs,
but study skills are basically the
same for everyone.
"Adult students basically have
the same study skills needs as tradi-
tional students; however, adult stu-
dents often have busier livesMyers
said, "for them it is not so much
how they study, but having the
time to study. They have to be
creative and purposeful in how
they spend their time
Some students may respond
better to pictures whereas others
may find it more helpful to discuss
notes with a friend.
Both traditional and non tradi-
tional students may find it benefi-
cial to plan an overall study strategy
for the exam. What do you need
to know? What form will the exam
be? How do the notes, readings,
and other materials relate to in
terms of what is expected?
It may also be helpful to talk
to previous students and observe
how the instructor responds to
Another good technique is to
predict and form questions prior
to the exam. Try to compose ques-
tions based on what the instructor
emphasized in class and answer
these questions.
Planning a study time can be the
most challenging part of preparing
for exams.
Due to the busy schedules most
college students have, it is probably
best to plan study periods into
smaller subtasks as opposed to
cramming for a test.
"Cramming actually works for
me said sophomore Rob Smith
"But f 'm driven by anxiety. I guess
i wouldn't recommend especially
for first year students
F.ducators agree that the best
way to work on study skills is for
students is to understand their
learning styles.

Los Angeles woman has
to recover six Gustav K
paintings held by the Austrian
government since the Nazis
took them from her uncle in
the 1930s.
Maria Altmann, 84, wants
the government-run Austrian
State Gallery in Vienna to
return the paintings, valued at
$1S0 million. She filed the suit
last week in the VS. District
Court here.
One painting, a full-length
portrait of Altmann's deceased
aunt, art collector Adele Bloch-
Bauer, is valued at $50 million
to $60 million. It is considered

Austria considers the paint-

synonymous with fugendstil,

The Nazis seized Ferdinand

He died penniless in Zurich. Some of the paintings, for which Bloch-Bauer

Hermann Goering.
Altmann asserts that her uncle, an Austrian sugar magnate, willed his
substantial estate to two nieces and a nephew when he died in 1945.
Altmann is the only one of the three still living.

lowered, said Daniel Phaneuf, an
NCSU assistant professor of agri-
culture and economics.
"To determine the efficient level
of water quality improvement,
that is the point at which benefits
are equal to the costs, we have to
be able to measure the benefits
Phaneuf saidIf we have this level
of benefits occurring for the gen-
eral public, should the general
public help subsidize efforts to
improve water quality? Is it worth
the cost? That's the question for
policy makers to answer
Phaneuf calculated that lower-
ing phosphorous levels in polluted
lakes and streams would be worth
"Look at how much people will pay to catch a
bass. It's an absurd amount if you only want to eat
the fish. But they will pay thousands of dollars for
the pleasure of catching the fish
Steve Bevington
$42.2 million each year. He calcu-
lates that reducing ammonia levels
in waterways would be worth $3.52
million a year and ensuring the
proper amount of dissolved oxygen
would be worth at least $13.8 mil-
lion annually.
That idea is one that some
Graham County residents living
near a polluted arm of Santeetlah
lake have been trying to get across
to state leaders.
"I just did some numbers on
the lake said Robert Moseley of
Cherokee Reality in Robbinsville.
"Over the last 12 months, nine new
homes were built on the lake. These
homes, plus all the remodeling and
room additions, came to over $3
million. That's new money now for
our economy
Although state leaders recognize
the general importance of clean
water, they don't relate that to spe-
cific water bodies or specific types
of pollution, said Steve Bevington,
interim director of the North Caro-
lina Clean Water Management Trust
Fund. The fund gets $30 million
from the state each year to protect
and improve water quality.
"Look at how much people will
pay to catch a bass Bevington
said. "It's an absurd amount if you
only want to eat the fish. But they
will pay thousands of dollars for the
pleasure of catching the fish
Graham County residents
recently criticized the state for not
warning them about dangerous
algal blooms on the West Buffalo
Creek arm of Santeetlah Lake.
A June 2000 state Division of
Water Quality report found the lake
arm is polluted by phosphorous
coming from trout farms upstream
and advised against swimming
in the water. State health depart-
ment leaders did not warn Graham
County about the danger until last
Trout farmers have tried to
stop the pollution by using low-
phosphorous food at the state's
request. Trout fanning in North
Carolina brings in more than $7
million each year. But Graham
County residents say the lake is
a much more valuable resource and
question whether the state realizes
its worth.
WOODWARD from page 2
to skate their first day.
"It's a pretty unique and wild situation said Gary Ream, Woodward
Camp Inc. president and partner with camp founder Ed Isabelle.
"Gymnastics is how we got started here but inline, skate and bike way
outweigh it now. It's amazing
At "the Cagea sprawling outdoor street course with a maze of
curving ramps and handrails from which bikers and skaters leap with
kamikaze abandon-biker Samantha Weinberg, 11, of Bergen County, N.J
was practicing her specialty, the no-footer.
"I definitely haven't got it yet she said of the move, in which both
she and the bike are airborne, her feet lifted off the pedals and straddling
the BMX's frame. "I fall off a lot, but it takes time to master any move,
and the most important thing is to be determined
Although she has been biking for two years, "1 consider this my first
time really Samantha said, noting that her time at Woodward has
taught her more than just tricks.
Biking is the rarest X-sport for females, Haas said. Girl bladers and
boarders are slightly more common but are still a minority at the
camp, in much the same way that Woodward's male gymnasts are
outnumbered by females.
But there is still crossover, the campers said. Some bikers become
bladers, some bladers become boarders, and once in a while some
gymnasts switch over to the wheeled sports.
"I used to come here for gymnastics, and then I decided to try
skateboarding said 14-year-old Annelise Dekker of Chicago. "So far,
my specialty is falling
"But I give you props for trying yelled biker Rob Burwell, 16, of
Columbus, Ohio.
Falling is part of the program here. A good day is one that you do
not slide, slam or tumble into a ramp, wall or the ground - sometimes
face first, said pro skater Bennett.
"I've broken my wrist four times, sprained it twice, had my elbow
drained, broken my ankle said pro skater Englehart, nodding to his
buddy. "But Bennett hurts himself every session
It's true, Bennett confessed.
"I've broken all my fingers, I've dislocated everything else he said.
"Too many stitches to count
But all that is secondary.
"I'm having fun. There's no worries and no place I'd rather be
Bennett said, with a grin, before strapping on his skates, donning his
helmet and speeding off.

Woods PGA Player of Year
The PGA of America announced Thurs-
day that Tiger Woods will win the Player
of the Year award. The winner of the
award is determined by a mathematical
formula based on points. Woods clinched
the award thanks to his three wins in
majors and his eight PGA Tour victories
this year.
Woods currently has 255 points. His
nearest competition is Phil Mickelson, with
Woods has won the award three out of
the last four years.

Former Duke standout Christian
Laettner will join yet another NBA squad

Laettner averaged 12.2 points per
game and 6.7 rebounds while playing in
all 82 games for Detroit last season.
Ceballos, the most notable of the
Dallas trio, averaged 16.7 points and 6.7
rebounds during the 1999-2000 season
with Dallas.

Former Tennessee Titans wide receiver
Isaac Byrd was claimed off of waivers

Pirates in blue mood
Season opener
two days away
Stephen Schramm
The last time ECU
lined up against
another team was
over eight months
ago at the Mobile
Alabama Bowl. Since
then, the players on
the other side of the
ball have been the
same, familiar faces.
Saturday, with the season
opener at Duke, the months
of facing exclusively teammates
comes to an end.
"We're looking forward to
beginning the season on the road
said offensive lineman Sherwin
Lacewell. "We're kind of tired
of practicing with each other
without any rewards. So we're
ready to get out there on the field
and see what we've learned
"They need to play a game
Logan said. "You get to a point
where practice becomes redundant.
You just can't get any better until you
play a game
The team has worked with an eye towards
Saturday's game since the end of last season.
"We are definitely ready said linebacker
I'ernell Griffin. "Today after practice we had a
real hard conditioner. I plan on taking it out on
somebody come Saturday
The 1999 season ended on a sour note with the
28-14 loss to TCU in the Mobile Alabama Bowl.
The Duke game marks the first time since the
loss that the team has played. Thoughts of the
game have stuck with the Pirates since the loss
last December.
"I'm really looking forward to getting back on
the field Griffin said. "We had a disappointment
in Alabama at the bowl. I'm ready to get back out
there along with my teammates and get a victory
on Saturday
"We didn't come out and play as physical as
we are capable of playing (in the bowl game)
lacewell said. "We're looking to erase that against
1-ast season these two teams tangled the second
week of the season in Greenville.
The Pirates prevailed 27-9 in a hard fought
victory. ECU held Duke to 309 yards of total
The Pirate offense struggled in the first half,
scoring only 10 points, due to the talented Duke
defensive front. ECU was unable to run the ball
effectively until the second half when the game
began to open up.
"The scheme of what they do usually it hard to
run the football Logan said. "They've got eight
men committed to the run and there's a way that
they can bring their safety down to make a ninth
man, which is what they did to us last year. I don't
care how good or bad you are, if you've got nine
guys and we're trying to block with seven, the math
isn't real good
This year, the Blue Devils lost five starters off
of last year's front seven. Still they should be
effective. Duke mainstays such as line backer Todd
Delamilleure and tackle Nate Krill return to give the
Duke defense punch.
"We don't know if they're strong or not Logan

Pirate Notes
"You get to a point where practice
becomes redundant. You just can't
get any better until you play
Steve l-ogan
said. "They are playing a brand new group of kids. They
could end being better than they had last year
Another area in which the Blue Devils differ from
last year is on offense. Ust year's squad featured an
offense based around a corps of speedy receivers.
Wideouts, Scottie Montgomery and Richmond Flowers
are gone, so to is the one-dimensional offense.
Duke Head Coach Carl Franks, has rededicated the
Blue Devils to the running game.
Four starters from last year's offensive line return,
as well as running backs Duane Epperson and Devin
"I don't know schematically what they are going
to do, but I think there will be more emphasis on the
run. The value of the running game became apparent
in some of the difficulties they experienced last year.
Carl Franks is a good football coach and he'll recognize
that and probably address it
Another familiar face in the backfield is quarterback
Spencer Romine. Romine returns for his senior year at
the helm of yet another new offense.
"We're not going to do anything special Griffin
said. "We want to come out and be the more aggressive
team and make plays
"Without any doubt Duke is still going to bring
everything they have to offer Lacewell said. "We
are going to have to counteract that with everything
we have to offer
Game not sold out
Saturday's season opener versus Duke is
not yet a sellout according to representa-
tives from the Duke Ticket Office.
As of Wednesday, the office said they

ECU tops
State, falls to Deacs
W. S. Childress
The ECU Women's Soccer team
opened their season Saturday against NC
State, a formidable ACC opponent.
In a hard-fought battle game, ECU
emerged victorious by scoring a single
goal with less than a minute remaining.
During the first half, NC State con-
trolled the tempo of the game, attempt-
ing eight shots while the Lady Pirates
attempted none. Brook Crews, a sopho-
more goalkeeper for ECU, had three saves
in the first half, six for the game.
The second half proceeded much as
the first, with the Wolfpack controlling
the momentum of the game but unable
to score on Crews' outstanding goalkeep-
ing and the Lady Pirates' defensive
efforts. With one minute left in the game,
midfielders Charity McClure and Kim
Sandhoff made their move. Sandhoff
scored with an assist from McClure,
securing the victory for the Lady Pirates.
"Our freshmen performed phenom-
enally said Head Coach Rob Don-
nenwirth. "They did a great job, battled
until the end and came away with a good
win. We had a great opportunity to
score at the end and Kim and Charity
took it
"We held up nicely defensively said
freshman sweeper Penny Perrort. "We
still need some work, though. Better
organization on offense is an area we
need to improve on
Seven freshmen played their first
college soccer game Saturday. Among
them, including Perrott, was Lauren
Boucher, a freshman forward.
"College soccer is definitely more
intense than club soccer said Boucher.
"You have to be more prepared for the
game and be ready to go. It is definitely

On Tuesday, August 30th, ECU faced

At the end of the half, Wake Forest led
ECU came out with more intensity
and fire in the second half, fighting
harder for the ball. However, Wake's
footwork and organization prevailed.
Sandhoff scored ECU'S lone goal of the
game while Wake added two more to
their total, giving them a decisive victory
over the Pirates, 4-1.

Kuerten, Rafter
ousted at Open
NEW YORK (AP)�A year ago, on the grass at Eastbourne, Anne
Kremer beat Monica Seles in straight sets in their first and only meeting.
At the U.S. Open on Wednesday, Seles returned the favor with a 6-3,
6-4 victory.
Seles, a two-time Open champion making her 10th appearance at
this Grand Slam event, continued her streak of making it to the third
round or better here. Seeded sixth, she needed 1 hour, 9 minutes to
finish Kremer.
Coining off a loss to Venus Williams in the finals at New Haven in the
warmup for the Open, Seles displayed an efficient all-court game against
Kremer. She had three aces and converted three of eight break-point
opportunities, while Kremer capitalized on just one of five.
"She doesn't make mistakes and she loves pace Seles said of
Kremer. "I knew it would be tough. At key times, I was able to raise
my game
The Seles-Kremer match opened Wednesday's program. It was
followed at center court by Williams, the No. 3 seed, against Kveta
Hrdlickova. No. 1 seed Martina Hingis was set to play Kristina Brandi
in the first night match.
On Tuesday night, Patrick Rafter was back in the spotlight in Arthur
Ashe Stadium with his high-kicking serve, crisp volleys and bouncing
ponytail. It was just the place and time for Galo Blanco to shine.
As Tuesday turned into Wednesday, Blanco rallied from a 2-4 deficit
in the fifth-set tiebreak to eliminate the two-time U.S. Open champion
7-6 (3), 2-6, 6-3, 1-6, 7-6 (5).
Although Rafter was unseeded for the first time since 1996 and just
recovering from shoulder injury, he was considered a threat to win
the year's final Grand Slam tournament. The threat was wiped out in
three hours, two minutes by a Spaniard who has had problems winning
on any surface this year.
The 23-year-old Blanco had lost in the first round in 13 of his 16
previous Grand Slam tournaments. In his best performance in a major,
he reached the quarterfinals of the 1997 French Open where he bumped
into Rafter and lost in straight sets.
De La Hoya Sues Promoter Arum
Oscar De la Hoya sued promoter
Bob Arum on Tuesday, trying to end
their contract after eight years.
"1 was very surprised and disap-
pointed by Bob's recent comments
to the press stating that 1 should

said in a statement:
"I am as committed to boxing

Arum was quoted in the Los

De La Hoya well with his budding

Arum said Tuesday the lawsuit,
filed in federal court, is "one word:
De La Hoya's attorney, Stephen
Espinoza, said the lawsuit seeks
only to end the fighter's contract
with Arum, which has three years
left on It, and does not ask for
monetary damages.
Espinoza said the deal was
"negotiated at a stage of his career
where he gave up way too much"
and that De La Hoya attempted to
resolve the matter privately before
filing suit.
"Oscar has not learned how to
deal with defeat, and he looks for a
scapegoat, and this time the arrow
