Webster resigns as ASG president
NCSU candidate
elected at Raleigh meeting
Nancy Kuck
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
Cliff Webster, former ECU Stu-
dent Government Associa-
tion (SGA) president, resigned as the
North Carolina Association of Stu-
dent Governments (ASG) president
on Sept. 7 in Raleigh, N.C.
Webster, who was arrested this
past June on charges of larceny after
he and another student were found
in possession of stolen property
belonging to ECU, called the meeting
which drew student body presidents
from all over state, as well as the N.C.
Board of Governors (BOG).
Webster said his resignation
stemmed from his peers' perceptions
concerning his position as well as
the BOG's.
" It seems to me that many student
leaders worried so much about what
the BOGs think that it is in the students' best
interest for me to step down Webster said. "I
don't serve the BOGs, I serve our students, and
when representing students is second best to the
administration and the BOG's members, then I do
not need to be a part of it
After serving five years in student government,
Webster told fellow student body presidents that
his dedication to various student issues was not a
job or hobby, but rather a passion.
"The hardest .thing for me to do is to stand up
here and explain myselfrWebster said. "I truly
believe that actions speak so much more than
words
During the speech, Webster talked about the
memories he shared at several universities participat-
ing in various events including issues concerning
flood-ridden students. He thanked many for giving
him the chance to serve as ASG president. In the
same aspect, a fellow board member mentioned
his sincere thanks for the service that was run by
Webster and was regretful on the way his term
ended.
"It is a learning experience that I will never
forget and one that would sure go down in the
history of Cliffie Webster said.
Webster's resignation speech started off the first
and last of his term as ASG president.
Following the speech, an election was held for
a new ASG president. The five candidates were:
James Bryant of UNC-Greensboro, David Chesley of
Western Carolina University, Liz Gardner of UNC-
Chapel Hill, Andrew Payne of NCSU and Richard
Wheelahan of Appalachian State.
During the caucus, candidates voiced their goals
and ideas if elected ASG president. One common
goal among the candidates was the issue of passing
the bond referendum. Many of the candidates
spoke on behalf of Webster and the excellent job
he has done promoting the referendum during his
presidential term.

to the ASG presidency. Payne, an NCSU student, took his oath of
office Thursday of last week

Kuck)
"If you touch one heart, one life, one
education, you have done your job
Cliff Webster
FORMER ASG PRESIDENT
Two candidates, Gardner and Payne, were finalized
for another caucus to determine who would be elected
president. Gardner, the current ASG vice president, was
two votes shy of Payne.
Payne addressed a lack of confidence in the associa-
tion due to the lack of participation from various
colleges and a dwindling of attendees in recent events.
"I really want to see a new direction in ASG said
Andrew Payne, the newly elected ASG president.
Topics in his speech included alternatives in the
event that the bond referendum is not passed. Payne
also stressed the need to take action on issues rather
than just discussing them.
"I truly believe that until we overcome these
confidence issues both internally and externally, we
can't go any farther Payne said.
After Payne was sworn in,Webster added before
leaving words he held dear to himself and wished to
pass on to the new ASG president and others.
"If you touch one heart, one life, one education,
you have done your job
Of the 16 universities that ASG heads, student
government representatives from NC A&T, NCSU,
Appalachian State, The N.C. School of the Arts,
Western Carolina University, Winston-Salem State,
UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC-Charlotte, UNC-Greensboro,
UNC-Pembroke and UNC-Wilmington attended the
meeting. Five universities whose student govern-
ments did not send members Included ECU'S own
SGA. ECU's current SGA President Brent Queen
was unable to attend the meeting due to personal
reasons.

Florence brews off coast
American Red Cross
to hold blood drive
Students encouraged to donate as city faces shortage
The tropical depression swirling in the Atlantic southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C, has
strengthened into Tropical Storm Florence. Hurricane hunters flew into the storm Monday
afternoon and found they storm's sustained winds had strengthened to 60 mph. Tropical
Storm Rorence is centered about 385 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras and moving
west-southwest at about 6 mph. Meteorologists predict the system's forward motion will
continue to be slow and erratic over the next 24 hours. Rorence is the sixth named storm
of the Atlantic hurricane season.

The American Red Cross blood drive will be held from 12 p.m6 p.m. on Sept.
12 and 13 in Mendenhall Student Center. The Air Force ROTC will host the event.
All students are encouraged to donate.
The Greenville Red Cross has recently issued an emergency appeal for blood.
Hospital usage of blood donations has increased while donors have decreased.
To ease the shortage, blood drives are held frequently at ECU because of high
student participation.
"We need to recruit more donors to help meet the increased demand of the
hospitals said Oonna Sword, executive assistant at the Red Cross office. "ECU
Is by far the biggest and best supporter of the blood drives. They have done a
wonderful job
Members of ECU's ROTC expressed the need for continued student donations.
"It is essential for students to donate blood and I am proud to see our
detachment taking an active role in this program said junior Kyle Lanto, an
Air Force ROTC cadet.
Students said the act of giving blood is not only important but is also a
comfort.
"I think it is important to be a donor because you can never tell when you or
your family member may be in a life-threatening situation where they will need
blood said senior Mun Conner, a nursing major. "1 feel better knowing that 1 have
done something for the well being of another

BLOOD
from page 1
New testing procedures now contribute to the
safety of the Red Cross's blood supply. With these
new safety precautions, students can now have more
confidence when donating blood.
Approximately every two seconds someone in
the United States is in need of blood. The Red Cross
receives nearly 6 million volunteer blqod donations
a year and serves over 3,000 hospitals nationwide.
Patients undergoing surgery, accident victims, cancer
patients and hemophiliacs are those who receive the
most blood by the Red Cross.

FACTS ON DONATING BLOOD
�Who is eligible to give
blood?
To give blood, you must be
healthy, at least 17 years old
;and weigh at least 110 pounds.
Persons who are older than 65
�and in good health may usually
donate with the approval of the
blood bank physician.
�Is it safe to give blood?
Yes, it is very safe. Each
needle used in the procedure is
sterile and is disposed of after a
Isingle use.
�How often can I donate
blood?
People in good health who
Weigh at least 110 pounds
:can donate a unit of blood
as often as every eight weeks.
'Some states may further limit
the number andor frequency of
donations in a 12-month period.
�Where can I go to donate
blood?
There are many places where
donations can be made.
Bloodmobiles travel to high
schools, colleges, churches and
other community organizations.
People can also donate at com-
munity blood centers and hos-
pital-based donor centers. Many
people donate at blood drives
at their workplace. To find out
where you can donate, call
1-800-CIVE-LIFE or contact your
local Red Cross.
�What is plateletpheresjs?
Although most blood is
donated as whole blood, it is
also possible to donate only a
portion of blood using a tech-
nique called apheresis. Blood is
drawn from the vein of a donor
into an apheresis instrument,
which separates the blood into
different portions by centrifu-
gation. By appropriately adjust-
ing the instrument, a selected
portion of the blood, such as
the platelets, can be recovered,
while the rest of the blood is
returned to the donor either into
the same vein or into a vein in
the other arm.
This process takes more time
than whole blood donation, but
the yield of platelets is much
greater. Platelets collected by
apheresis are particularly useful
for patients who require numer-
ous platelet transfusions, for
example cancer patients who
have received chemotherapy.
�Can a patient donate his
or her own blood for use in
surgery?
Yes. When blood transfusions
are anticipated, such as upcom-
ing elective surgery, a person
can donate blood for his or
her own use. Autologous blood
donation refers to a process
whereby the patient provides his
or her own blood.
There are three types of
autologous procedures available
for a patient undergoing sur-
gery. Preoperative autologous
donation, in which the patient
donates his or her own blood
prior to the surgery, is the
mos.t common form of autolo-
gous transfusion. Intraoperative
and postoperative cell salvage
are two other ways of saving
blood lost during or immediately
after surgery for return to the
donorpatient.

Man-made vs. God-made.
Napster, RIAA gear up for October rematch
Satellite
Orbitting Earth.
San Francisco, (AP)- It's not exactly the State
of California vs. OJ. Simpson. But If you're a fan of
downloadable music, then it might as well be.
The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said last
week that it will hear arguments during the first
week in October in the case against music-swapping
pioneer Napster, Inc. The hearing will take place in
San Francisco.
Filed by the RIAA, the suit requests that Napster shut
down its network, which facilitates the distribution of
millions of compressed digital music flies, popularly
known as MP3s, and allows its users access to a huge
library of copyrighted music in exchange for a little
downloading time and no money.
The Warner Music Group, Sony Music, A&M Records
and Universal Music are just some of the players enlisted
in the fight against Napster, which delivers the network
to millions of active users via free software.
The RIAA alleges that Napster's network massive
blazes the trail for rampant copyright infringement.

Napster, on the other hand, maintains that its
product is no more harmful than a VCR. The
company claims that only a portion of its network's
contents is copyright protected, and that providing
users with an open house doesn't make it responsible
when people take what isn't lawfully theirs.
In July, U.S. District Court Judge Marilyn Hall
Pate! issued orders for Napster to shut its network
down immediately, pointing to documents within
the company that hinted at knowledge � and
support � of the software's capabilities for piracy.
The following day, however, the 9th Circuit
granted the company a stay. More recently, several
groups, including the Consumer Electronics Associa-
tion, which includes Apple Computer, Microsoft,
America Online and other companies, have filed
reports urging the 9th Circuit to keep Napster
in business, claiming that Patel's ruling poses an
unprecedented threat to the future exchange of free
information online.

HAPPY 106" BWWIAY, WESJbNE.
Now, Let this be a lesson
to the rest of you. We
see you out there, con-
templating stupendously
dumb acts, and we're
poised to poke fun at you.
So think of Cliffie's sac-
rifice before you commit
your own royal screw-up.
OUR VIEW
We're so proud of you, Cliffie. For real this time.
This past week, former SGA President Cliff Webster took responsibility
for his recent royal screw-up. He voluntarily gave up a position he loved
as president of an influential student organization, not because of his
crime, and not because of his inability to do the job, but because his
constituents wished it so. So now, in the midst of a sacrificial abdication,
Cliff did something right.
Politicians are, after all, servants of the people. When they disappoint
us, or when they do stupendously dumb things-like steal furniture from the
campus landscape-they owe it to the people they serve to hand the reigns
to someone who does not do stupendously dumb things. Our boy Cliffie did
not try to run from this universal truth like most politicians of our day. The
best part is, he's been a good sport about it all.
Cliff did not whine or cry like a big baby, and he did not make a speech
about how it was that other boy's fault or how the devil made him do it
or how the bench was lonely and needed a good home. No, Cliff stood up
proudly and acknowledge his stupendously dumb act. For that, he earns
a TfC pat on the back.
Now, Let this be a lesson to the rest of you. We see you out there,
contemplating stupendously dumb acts, and we're poised to poke fun at you.
So think of Cliffie's sacrifice before you commit your own royal screw-up. You
might have to face the music too.
We just want Cliff to know that we consider the slate wiped clean as
far as his responsibility to the students goes, and we think he made a wise
choice on our part. Despite all our sarcastic jokes and our big expose on
the great crimes of Cliff Webster, TfC does know how much his job as
ASG president meant to him. And we know how much it means that he
bowed out gracefully.

Issue: Education
Michael Harris
COLLEGE REPUBLICANS

Issue: Education
Phillip GUfus
COLLEGE DEMOCRATS
In the 2000 election, and indeed
in any election, the most important
issue to all Americans is education.
The subject of education ranges
from children entering preschool
and kindergarten to adults cen-
tering a university to earn their
masters' or doctorate. Education is
pivotal to the economic and social
success of this country. So what
will Vice President Al Gore do as
president to promote and improve
education?
One of the most debated educa-
tional issues today is school vouch-
ers. Vouchers, in theory, would be
given to parents whose children go
to poor performing public schools
and would give them a "scholar-
ship" to a local private school.
The vice president fiercely opposes
this.
Why? Because we cannot aban-
don our public schools. Vouchers
would take money away from the
public schools so students could
have a small scholarship to attend
a private school. So does it help
public schools to take money away
from them? Of course not, but
apparently Republican nominee
Gov. George W. Bush does. He sup-
ports the idea of vouchers.
And is it really a truism that
private schools teach better than
public schools? I may be bragging,
but I have always done well in
school, and I am a proud product
of the public school system.
Some may argue that went to
"good" public schools, relatively
free of crime and drugs, and that
there are many "poor" schools out
there. But that's precisely why we
need to keep our money in public
schools, and as Gore proposes,
increasing the help we give public-
schools.
Schools suffer from overcrowd-
ing. As president, Gore would fight
to decrease class size so teachers
could give more attention to their
students and not be overwhelmed
by them. Gore will also fight to
increase teacher pay and, as he has
said many times, "treat teachers as
the professionals they are
Most of us won't have to worry
about the problems of public-
schools until we ourselves have
children. So what about college?
Gore has introduced a plan lo
expand access to higher education
through "401-J" accounts. Through
these accounts, students will be
able to save money for college, tax-
free, for themselves, their spouse or
their child's education.
College will also be more acces-
sible to students through a National
Tuition Savings program where
individual tax-free savings accounts
can be established and be trans-
ferable for working families who
move from state to state. Under the-
Clinton-Gore administration there
has been an expansion of access
to college with HOPE scholarships,
expanded Pell grants, lifetime learn-
ing tax credits, work study and
other financial support. As presi-
dent, Gore will continue to support
these programs
If you want to support public-
schools, if you want to make a
college education a reality for every
American citizen, if you want your
future children to have a quality
education, I ask for your support
for Vice President Gore and the
Democratic Party.
With education being such a
vital issue, it is important to note-
that Gov. George W. Bush has
placed education at the very top of
his political platform.
While many historians will say
that education has long been an
issue of the Democratic Party, I
think it is important to note that
Bush's new brand of compassion-
ate conservatism has not only
embraced the importance of educa-
tion as a national issue, but is
attempting to bring about effective
reform in the field of K-12 educa-
tion.
Let's take a minute to examine
the state of Texas. The following
results have occurred during. Bush's
administration:
� Texas was cited as one of two
states that has made the greatest
recent progress in education (as
identified by a Congressionally
mandated report)
� African-American fourth grad-
ers in Texas ranked first in the
nation in math
� African-American and His-
panic eighth graders in Texas
ranked first and second respectively
in the nation in writing
� The number of students pass-
ing all parts of the state skills test
has increased by 51 percent
� The number of "exemplary"
schools in Texas has increased from
67 in 1994 to 1,120 in 2000.
In addition to these results,
Bush has increased funding for
jbcuuuf, JUtotatdttU
public schools by $8.3 billion (an
increase of 37 percent per student)
and teacher pay by 33 percent (an
average increase of $8,232).
While it is always important to
examine a politician's record, it is
also important to find out what
plans they have for the future. As
he has publicly stated, Bush's plan
for education reform is based many
items:
� Closing the gap between dis-
advantaged students and their
peers
� Strengthening early learning
by investing $5 billion in a "Read-
ing Kirst" program and reforming
(not abolishing) the Head Start
program
� Raising standards by increas-
ing local control, accountability
and choice
� Giving parents more educa-
tion options
� Improving teacher quality and
increasing their resources
� Restoring school safety and
promoting character develop-
ment.
Bush has repeatedly emphasized
the importance of creating a "cul-
ture of achievement particularly
in the areas of reading, math and
science.
Three particular points that
I personally feel are vital to the
improvement of our public schools
are making sure that control always
remains at the state and local
level (including curriculum choice,
accountability and testing), provid-
ing a generous level of funding for
public education and reducing the
level of bureaucracy within our
education system.
In a recent public address, Bush
pointed out that one particular
federal grant application process
in the Department of Education
requires 487 steps and 26 weeks for
processing.
As most readers have probably-
noticed, 1 have stayed away from
the issue of school vouchers,
instead of focusing on one particu-
lar part of education reform, I felt
it was more important to look at
Bush's entire plan.
I want to also emphasize the
importance of a bipartisan effort
if our education system is to really
improve. I have examined Vice
President Al Gore's education plan
and found some very good ideas,
such as his Education Reform Trust
Eund.
My research has provided proof
that Bush is a "reformer with
results I encourage everyone to
get involved in the fight to improve
public education in the United
States. Take time to read the plans
of the politicians you are voting
for. All my information was gather
from official Web sites of Bush and
Gore.
In conclusion, I want to encour-
age all ECU faculty, staff and stu-
dents to get out and vote in Novem-
ber for the bond referendum that
will provide the state's public uni-
versities and community colleges
with much needed funding for
renovations and improvements.
IN MY OPINION
IN MY OPINION
AIDS epidemic, a crisis we all must face
Pressure, parents foul up sports
The Lariat (Baylor U.)-In 1999,
2.6 million people worldwide died
of AIDS and a staggering 5.6 million
became infected with the HIV virus,
according to the AIDS Education
and Research Trust (AVERT) Web
site.
Thousands of people die every-
day of AIDS, but at Baylor, we rec-
ognize that fact only five days out
of the year during AIDS Awareness
Week. With such a high mortality
rate, how could the disease be
ignored on a college campus?
AIDS is a reality. Of the 2.6
jj million cases of AIDS worldwide,
j Texas accounts for 51,449, and
L 2,989 of the 5.6 million HIV cases.
People are dying of and infecting
others with this horrible disease
everywhere, even on the Baylor
campus and in Waco. But Baylor
students only receive information
that could save our lives during one
week in November.
Speakers do not make all the
difference and teaching abstinence
does not work for all the students
who will still have sex, who will
still be raped and who will still be
vulnerable to HTV.
Southern Methodist University
allows its students full access to all
information concerning AIDS and
HIV. SMU's Health Education Office
provides a variety of services related
to prevention of diseases, includ-
ing AIDS. One program offered is
sexual awareness (e.g prevention
of AIDS and other sexually trans-
mitted diseases, and unplanned
pregnancy).
The University of Texas in
Austin offers classes on birth con-
trol, sex and abstinence programs
offered regularly in its health center.
Information about their HIVAIDS
prevention programs is even avail-
able on the UT Web site. At Texas
Christian University, female stu-
dents can even be prescribed birth
control pills.
What these schools have in
common is the awareness that sex
is going on in and around their
campus. They choose not to turn
a blind eye to the AIDSHIV
crisis. Because they address the
problem with information and
programs year-round, those univer-
sities expose their students to the
problem, education that may very
well save their lives.
One AIDS education and medi-
cal research charity says that pre-
vention and awareness programs
are especially important for college
students. Statistics show that half of
all infections to date involve 1S-24-
year-olds, according to AVERT's
Web site.
If all college students had safe
and secure lives, a "just say no"
message might be sufficient. But
college students face the pressures
of sex, drinking and other destruc-
tive behaviors. To think that all
students are following the hand-
book and ignoring the pressures
they face every day Is a tragic form
of ignorance.
Baylor should take a stand and
inform its students about preven-
tion because the disease can affect
anybody, even those in the Baylor
bubble.
The first step is for students,
faculty and administration to real-
ize that AIDS is a problem on all
college campuses, including Baylor.
Only then can the university decide
on a comprehensive, effective way
to deal with this disease.
Will Baylor act now, or wait
until more people die?
The Orion (California State U
Chico)-rt's that time again sports
fans grab some munchies and
beverages and prepare to watch
numerous children exploited and
ultimately influenced.
That's right-every four years
we are blessed with the world's
game, the Olympics. It's a chance
to see athletes from all over the
globe gather and partake in what
is supposed to be the love of their
sport and competition.
What was once a game to join
nations has become nothing more
than a "my country is better than
your country, and I will do any-
thing it takes to beat you" competi-
tion.
Who can forget the lovely visual
of Beta Karolyi shoving a half-
crippled Kerri Strug down the ramp
just to lock up a victory? Believe
me, I wish I could. Then the slave
driver went running around the
arena carrying the injured gymnast
as if he could give a crap if she
would ever walk again.
What a positive image we
are sending to the children at
home. Let's break this down: We
have an overweight senior forcing
74-pound 20-year-olds to risk per-
manent injury, all for some public-
ity and to be able to say he beat
the Russians.
While watching the trials, I
witnessed numerous girls getting
verbally berated for not sticking
their landings perfectly. Then,
when they actually pull off a jump
on the uneven bars, the gymnasts
are rewarded with a pat on the back
and a celebratory celery stick, or
maybe even a V-8.
If the Olympics aren't your
thing, then maybe you caught the
Little League World Series. If you
caught it, then the sight of 11-year-
olds bawling their eyes out at the
end of the game is nothing new.
If you have never tuned in to
ESPN, then the sight of the illegal
17-year-old Cuban kids hurling
85-mph fastballs at our Little Leagu-
ers is something new. Luckily,
the Cubans had to stay home this
year. Taking their place were the
gargantuan Venezuelans whipping
our boys in the finals.
People, we are talking about
Little League Baseball. This used
to be a game where on Saturday,
young kids got together, committed
six or seven errors and went and
got pizza afterwards. There was no
network coverage, no illegal 6-foot
foreign players sporting facial hair
and to quote Tom Hanks in "A
I-eague of Their Own there was
definitely no crying in baseball.
These poor kids are just sup-
posed to be playing a game. The
problem is, like every other sport
in this great nation, this pastime
has become a competition where
having fun only comes from win-
ning, and even then, only if they
had a good game.
If it were up to the kids, it would
probably still be a game of fun.
The problem comes in when the
dads who never got drafted as teens
and the soccer moms get a hold on
their children.
An incident in Pennsylvania
encompassed everything that is
wrong with children's sports today.
After a game, one dad confronted
another and a fight ensued. The
results were one man dead and
several children traurhatized after
watching it.
Please, do me a favor-Let the
kids play. Quit starving the minia-
ture women on the balance beams
and chastising them for not hitting
a double flip on the uneven bars.
Another idea-quit televising Little
League games. Let the boys come to
the park, overthrow first base a few
times and then hit the dugout for
snack time after the game.
So, F am calling for a boycott
of all Olympic sports involving
anyone under the age of 16, or
under 100 pounds. Who's with
me?

Volunteer Center helps
students give back to community
Brian Frizzelle
ASSISTANT FOUNTAINHEAD EDITOR
The Volunteer Center recently opened in its
new location in Room 110 in Christenbury Memo-
rial Gymnasium, provides students with many
opportunities to give back to their community.
The Center, which was previously cramped into
a much smaller room on the second floor of the
building, offers all of the resources that students
interested in volunteering may need.
"The main reason for volunteering is that it's
the right thing to do said Jason Denius, assistant
director of the ECU Student Volunteer Program . "It's
our social responsibility to assist with problems and
to give back to our community
The Center opened during the first week of this
semester following renovations to the building. It
actually consists of two programs, the Volunteer
Program and the Campus Mentors.
The Volunteer Program includes Service Learning,
which enables students to put the skills they have
learned in their majors to use. in the community
and different volunteering opportunities such as
helping disadvantaged children and the elderly.
The program offers a chance to volunteer at any of
six assisted living facilities and nursing homes and
retains close contact with the Pitt County Council
on Aging.
Volunteers tutor students and help teachers at
a majority of elementary schools in the Greenville
and Pitt County area such as the Patillo Elementary
school in Tarboro and work at the hospital as well
the local Boy's and Girl's Clubs and the Greenville
Community Shelter. Volunteers also help at the Pitt
County AIDS Service Organization (P1CASO), which
offers educational programs about HfV and gives
support to victims of AIDS and their families.
"We have contracts with 92 different agencies
but we will approve more Denius said.
Campus Mentors is made up of two programs,
the Power of One and the East Carolina Friends. The
Power of One is a mentoring program, while the East
Carolina Friends gives students a chance to be a big
brother or big sister to a child who needs the extra
attention. The Power of One was one of only five
similar programs in North Carolina that received a
perfect evaluation recently.
"Mentors help court-appointed youths. They go
to the homes of the children and visit and go to

court with them when necessary, said Judy Baker,
director of the ECU Student Volunteer Program!
"What we do is good for everybody
"The program makes a big impact on me and
I can make a big impact on the community said
junior Eric Miller, a mentor and occupational
therapy major. "I feel like I'm benefiting the
community by helping people that are less
fortunate than I am. I think it's great for the
school and I think more students should get
involved
Volunteers are not limited to pre-med students
and students in the social work department.
Anyone can volunteer no matter what their
interest and time constraints.
"Student athletes are really good about
volunteering and giving back to their com-
munity Denius said.
The benefits for student volunteers are not
just limited to the satisfaction of helping other
people. Students can gain real life experiences,
make great network connections, and build
leadership and communication skills.
"Nothing looks as good on your resume as
what you do for your community Baker said.
"A lot of your best learning doesn't come from
a textbook, it comes from experience and that's
what we offer
The Volunteer Center pays for liability and
accident insurance for student volunteers and
help the students keep track of their individual
volunteer work.
"We keep records of all the volunteers' hours
and can verify hours for resumes and write
recommendation letters Denius said.
While the center's main concern is the
students, Baker recognizes the hard work many
different people have done to make the programs
a reality.
"None of this could have been possible
without the efforts of the chancellor, vice
chancellor, the dean of the School of Health
and Human Performance and our department
chair Baker said.
"The main reason that we're here is for the
students Denius said. "Our goal is to get all
students involved in volunteer service. We are
advocates for the students and are here to serve

This version of Madden boasts new
player models that are incredibly intri-

amazingly realistic.
In addition, each player is weight

their real life counterparts. Now, their

Freshman challenged
to shut up for year
New Jersey (AP)-Silence has a new name, and it's Brett Banfe?
The student, a freshman at William Paterson University in New
Jersey, has vowed to issue not so much as a single word for an entire
year, starting Aug. 31.
Banfe's quest is by his own design, but Darefordollars.com will pay
the new student $20 a day for as each day he can keep quiet. Should he
keep his lips sealed unUl Sept. 1, 2001, DarefordoIlars.com will kick in an
additional $5,000, for a total of $12,300.
According to Karen Ammond, Banfe's personal publicist, this vocal
strike began as a simple "what if?" among friends. Is it possible to go an
' entire day without speaking? A week? A month? A year?
Banfe thought so, and after a few friendly challenges from friends, he
decided to give it a shot. A short time later, the 18-year-old submitted his
idea to Darefordollars.com, and voila, another 15 minutes of fame�or in
this case, 525,600 minutes of fame�have begun ticking away.
It should be noted, however, that Banfe isn't in it for the glory. Nor is
he in it for the cash, all of which he will donate to charity.
Rather, Banfe is here to learn, from others and from himself. Instead
of talking�of which, Ammond says, Banfe admits to doing quite a
bit�he will switch gears and just listen and observe, with hopes of
improving himself in the process.
"It's college, so every day is an obstacle Ammond said. "He'll
be meeting new people, making new friends and going out on dates,
although the girls will have to do the asking for a while
In order to creep out a few potential friends and dates as possible,
Banfe will distribute a business card to all comers. The card sports
his name, his Web address, his mission and a reassurance that "this
is not a joke
In addition to the usual melee that is freshman year, Banfe will
be consistently accompanied by Bob, his roommate. Additionally,
Darefordollars.com will position spies in top-secret areas around campus,
said Poznick, who added that the spies will not disrupt Banfe's classwork!
"His mom was pretty concerned about that he said.
Then, of course, there's the bounty. Should anyone be able to produce
evidence of Banfe speaking, Darefordollars.com will pay the hunter a cool
$1,000, and Banfe's silent ride will screech to an abrupt end.
Naturally, Darefordollars.com is encouraging any wannabe Boba Ketts
to be tasteful and lawful in their attempts to make Banfe speak. But
rules are rules, and speaking for any reason other than an emergency is
grounds for disqualification, says Poznick.
Since launching in April, Darefordollars.com has accepted bids from
armchair daredevils across the country and, through Webcasts on the
site, have showcased their acts, which have ranged from bowling in
a jock to riding a mechanical bull wearing nothing but a whipped
cream bikini.
But unlike Darefordollars.com's previous episodes, Banfe's mission
is unique in that it is not a one-shot shock attack, but an enduring
journey that a single slip of the tongue can destroy. And turning a vow
of silence into good video is a unique challenge, according to executive
producer Barry Poznick.

SPORTS BRIEFS
Knight
fired by IU
Sunday, Indiana University
fired it's head basketball coach
of 29 years, Bob Knight.
Knight, whose volatile
temper has gained many fans
and detractors, was forced to
abide by a strict set of guidelines
and a "zero tolerance" policy
following an incident in which
it was discovered he choked
former player, Neil Reed, in
1997.
"We made it clear what was
acceptable behavior for Coach
Knight said Myles Brand,
university president. "Unfortu-
nately, over the last 17 weeks,
he has been both defiant and
hostile. Coach Knight has shown
no desire to live within the zero-
tolerance guidelines
IU cited incidents in which
Knight has "verbally abused a
high ranking female university
official" and not attended
important university functions.
The most recent incident
came last week when an IU
freshman, Kent Harvey alleged
that Knight grabbed him and
verbally abused him outside an
Assembly Hall in Bloomington.
Knight did not attend Sun-
day's press conference as he was
vacationing in Canada.
IU will honor the two remain-
ing years of Knight's contract.
The Hoosiers will look for an
interim coach for next season
before hiring a replacement for
the controversial coach.
Knight arrived at IU in 1971
following a stint as head coach
at Army. He won 11 Big
Ten championships and three
national titles while at IU.

Russian Marat Safin and
Venus Williams, won titles this
weekend at the U.S. Open.
Williams defeated fellow
American Lindsey Davenport in
the Women's final 6-4, 7-5 to
win her second straight grand
slam event. Williams won Wim-
bledon earlier this year.
Safin, 20, bested Pete Sam-
pras in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3,
6-3, to win his first grand slam
title.
The loss drops Sampras'
record in grand slam finals to
13-2.

Special teams
miscues lead to defeat
Virginia Tech cruises past Pirates
Stephen Schramm
SPORTS EDITOR
Early in the first quarter of
Thursday night's 45-28 loss to
Virginia Tech, wide receiver Keith
Stokes caught a 52-yard bomb
from quarterback David Garrard,
that apparently gave ECU a first-
and-goal on the Hokie 5-yard line
and the raucous crowd reason to
celebrate.
But back at the ECU 40-yard
line there was a flag; the penalty,
illegal procedure, not enough men
on the line of scrimmage.
The 5-yard penalty nullified the
play and gave the Pirates a second-
and-nine from their own 38-yard
line.
After a first down two plays
later, the drive stalled and ECU
was forced to punt. The ball was
snapped low and punter We Her-
locker could not get the kick off,
instead running for a net loss of
six on the play.
The resulting Virginia Tech
drive ended with a field goal that
began a long night of scoring for
the ninth-ranked Hokies.
For most of the first half, ECU's
night went much like this. Pirate
miscues gave the Hokies easy
scores.
"We had some very unchar-
acteristic plays for this football
program said ECU Head Coach
Steve Logan. "Some of it was due
to Virginia Tech. They're a wonder-
fully gifted team.
"Some of it though was that
we had young men out there
losing their composure he said.
"Illegal procedure penalties, bad
long snaps, things that are not
and have not been part of this
program for gosh, I don't know. It
just was not a Pirate football team
out there
The lapses were most evident in
the kicking game, where two bad
snaps and an 87-yard punt return
led to 17 Virginia Tech points.
"I've got a long snapper, the
man's been snapping here for the
past two- and-a-half years and he's
never done that Logan said. "It's
not even in the repertoire. Zero bad
snaps. So he comes out and throws
one back on the ground and ends
up with a negative yardage play
and then the next time out, he
throws it over the punter's head
That's not us
While special teams mistakes
got most of the attention Thursday,
a solid showing by the ECU defense
was somewhat overshadowed. After

ful Michael Vick garnered leading

Women's Golf finishes
fifth at Baytree Classic

STAFF WRITER
This weekend, ECU ushered a
new sport into I heir lineup. The
ECU women's golf team began
play in their first season.
With a team composed mostly
of freshmen, ECU finished fifth
out of 31 teams in their first
tournament that was held at the
Baytree Plantation.
Freshman Jessica Krasney,
a native of Summerville, S.C
carded a 73 in the final round to
finish third overall with a score
of 224. Ashley Leonard finished
in a three-way tie for 17th with
a score of 229; Lauren Robinson
finished 36th with a score of 224
and Alyssa Hayes finished 62nd
with a score of 242.
"Jessica played just as well
as she does in practice and she
was only two shots away from
winning said Head Coach Kevin
Williams. "We were four shots
better each day and we played
like an experienced team.
"This was a very good tourna-
ment for them, he said. "Words
cannot explain how proud we are.
We were the talk of the tourna-
ment and now hopefully we will
keep moving up. We have three
girls that can really play and the
other two are fighters that don't
ever give up
"We had a good weekend
here and everyone is excited
about the other tournaments to
come Krasney said. "We hope to
improve as we gain more experi-

Appalachian State junior Jordy
Broder scored twice to hand the
ECU men's soccer team their first
loss of the season last Wednesday.
The Pirates opened up on a
strong note with senior Andy Jen-
nings scoring a goal with a bicycle
kick with 30:45 remaining in the
first. The Mountaineers answered
back shortly, however, with Broder
beating ECU goalkeeper Roger
Marvinney to tie the match 1 -1.
In an even second half, the
Mountaineers scored late with a
goal by Andy Simpson, making the
score 2-1. Broder put the game away
with a goal in the 88th minute of
the match.
"That was a difficult loss for
us said second-year Coach Devin
O'Neill. "I have to give credit to
ASU. They played well today and
we lost to a good team
"We played them hard, but
they came up with the two game-
winning points near the end of
the match. We just have to come
out and play better against Central
Florida Jennings said.
Freshman Clyde Sims and
senior midfielder Greg Hoffman
teamed up on two goals Sunday
to lead ECU to a 3-1 victory over
Central Florida. After 10 minutes
of play, Hoffman sent a cross to
the six-yard line right to Sims' foot
where he was able to score to give
the Pirates a 1-0 lead.
Less than three minutes later,
Sims scored again off a Hoffman
throw-in, sailing the ball over CFU
goalkeeper Mensur Tonuzi. By the
end of the first half, ECU led 3-0,
the last goal of the half coming
from Hoffman off a pass from
sophomore midfielder Michael
Uubin.
The Pirates settled down in the
second half to play solid defense,
protecting their lead. UCF finally
got on the board with under nine
minutes remaining in the game
with a goal from Kisto Koskini-
emi.
"We came ready to play today
and we were able to get on top
early O'Neill said. "Our perfor-
mance in training has been very
good and we just need to keep
progressing from week to week,
but this is a step in the right direc-

Sophomore tailback Lee Suggs
led the Hokies in rushing with
122 yards, including a 56-yard

Davis ended the evening with 100

Still, the Pirate defense held the

a home run or two in the game.
They had a long trap for a touch-

Somewhere in New Orleans, Tulane
Head Coach Chris Sceffo is not having a

For the second straight season, his
Green Wave will come to Greenville and
face ECU following a Pirates' loss.
Last season, on the heels of ECU'S
39-22 loss to Southern Miss the Pirates

Cougars, lose to UMBC
W. S. Childress
STAFF WRITER
ECU junior midfielder Kelly
Gray scored twice and senior Kim
Sandhoff added a goal to lead the
Pirates to victory over Elon College
4-2 on Sept. 5.
Within the first two minutes of
the game, Sandhoff stole the ball
and beat goalkeeper Sommer Cork
of Elon to give the Pirates a 1-0 lead.
Elon defender Kate Schabo, at the
fourteen-minute mark, beat ECU
goalkeeper Brooke Crews to give
Elon the tie. Immediately following
that play, ECU countered with a
goal by junior Emily Cozzf, assisted
by Sandhoff.
Elon did not waste any time
bringing the game to a tie. Elon's
Erin Morse, taking advantage of a
mishandled ball by Crews, scored
the goal to bring the match to a 2-2
score at halftime.
The Pirates played a lot more
aggressive throughout the second
half, dominating the midfield. Gray
scored twice, once on an assist by
freshman lauren Boucher and once
from Sandhoff's second assist of
the game, giving the Pirates a 4-2
victory.
"Sandhoff played a phenomenal
game at midfield for us said Head
Coach Rob Donnenwirth. "She is
just so creative and has a very good
shot. That's a hard combination to
try to stop.
"We came out in the second
half and just played with more
intensity. That intensity won the
game for us Sandhoff said.
ECU suffered their second defeat
of the season Friday, Sept. 8 against
Washington State at Annapolis.
Early into the game, the Pirates
took the lead when Sandhoff's
free kick bounced off the Cougar's
goalkeeper and right to Cozzi.
Cozzi's goal gave ECU the lead 1-0.
Washington State retaliated
three minutes later with forward
Deka DeWitt scoring the game-
tying goal. They went into the
second half tied.
The Cougars pressured ECU'S
defense throughout the half but
failed to convert on multiple
chances. With under nine minutes
of play left in the game, Cougars
midfielder Beth Childs hit the
game-winning shot from 23 yards.
"For the second straight game,
I thought we came out flat in the
first half and played competitive
soccer in the second half Don-
nenwirth said. "We just need to
focus on putting an entire 90 min-
utes together
University of Maryland-Balti-
more County visited Greenville on
Sunday, Sept. 10, for a game that
went into overtime. Four minutes
into overtime, Sandhoff came up
with an assist to senior Leanne
Mclnnis, giving ECU its third win
of the season.
"Kim knows how to pass the ball
and set up scoring opportunities

you can do that. Or we can go out

two quarters.

After gaining 122 yards in the
first half, with no points to show
for it, the Pirate offense began to
get back on track in the second
half.
On their first possession, the
Pirates drove 92 yards for their first
score of the game. A 4-yard pass
from Ganard to tight end Corey
Floyd cut the Hokie lead to 31-7.
On their next drive. Stokes
caught a 37-yard touchdown pass to
make it 31-14. Less than a minute
later, Suggs had his 56-yard touch-
down run, ending the comeback
bid.
"We came out in the second
half and won the second half

Bob Knight was revered, reviled
BLOOMINGTON, Ind.
(AP)�In the end, Bob Knight, the
old-school disciplinarian with a
notorious temper, couldn't control
the very person he needed most to
save his job: himself.
The red-sweatered stalwart of
the Hoosiers' bench, the man they
once called "The General was
fired Sunday by Indiana University
for a "pattern of unacceptable
behavior
That pattern included a chance
meeting with a freshman, whose
greeting offended the coach and
prompted Knight to grab him by
the arm and lecture him on man-
ners.
That was enough for IU presi-
dent Myles Brand, who dismissed
Knight, severing his 29-year rela-
tionship with a school where he was
revered and often reviled�mostly
for his temper.
Brand called Knight "defiant
and hostile" and said he had shown
a "continued unwillingness" to
work within the guidelines of the
athletic department. He also said
Knight violated the "zero-toler-
ance" conduct policy implemented
in May.
"He did not fulfill the promises
he gave me Brand said, adding
that Knight had the option of
resigning but refused.
Knight had a meeting with his
team Sunday night and afterward
addressed a throng of students
outside Assembly Hall, site of his
encounter with freshman Kent
Harvey last week.

You have if you've followed the career of Mitch Gaylord.
He was the first American gymnast in history to receive a perfect 10.0 as he
led the US gymnastics team to a gold medal victory in the 1984 Olympics.
He captured a silver medal in vaulting and two bronze medals in rings and
parallel bars.
Mitch was the number one ranked gymnast in
1983 and 1984 and invented two of the most
difficult and spectacular feats in gymnastics, the
Gaylord Flip and the Gaylord Two.
He was appointed by Ronald Reagan to the
President's Council for Physical Fitness and made his acting debut in 1986 in
American Anthem. In 1988, he appeared in several commercial ads including
Levi's, Nike, and Soloflex.
In 1995, Gaylord's talents were called upon by the producers of Batman Forever
to be the stunt double for Chris O'Donnell's role of "Robin In 1996, he served
as a journalistbroadcaster for the Olympics in Atlanta. Mitch is finishing his first
book. Imperfect 10, which should be available next year.
