In accordance with Latino Heritage Month this
September, campus officials met recently with 30
Hispanic ECU students to gather interest for a proposed
new student minority organization on campus.
Dr. Lathan E. Turner, assistant vice chancellor
of Student Life and director of Intercultural Affairs,
emphasized the importance of creating an organization
for latino students.
"We want to encourage Latino students to come
together and we want to reach out to the Latino
community Turner said. "This organization will help
the latino students feel more involved on campus and
help them to be in touch with like persons
The meeting was only the first of many activities
in an effort to spearhead the undertaking of the new
organization.
'The next step in this process will be getting the
actual organization started said Rachel Cherrier
of Intercultural Student Affairs. "We will provide
information and advice to help this new organization
get off the ground
Turner said that the proposed organization would
center around positive outreach to the Latino commu-
nity. Minority students would also become acquainted
with each other in an effort to form a solid foundation
for the Greenville community.
According to Dr. Ruben Viramontez-Anguiano,
an assistant professor in the department of child
development and family relations. North Carolina has
the fastest growing latino population in the United
States. There are currently 275 Utino students at ECU,
90 of whom Uve on campus.
"As the overall number of students at ECU rises, we
expect to see a rise in enrollment of Latino students
Viramontez-Anguiano said.
He also expressed his hope that each Latino student
become as successful as possible, and that they should
act as a positive role model for others of the same
heritage.
Above: Chancellor Richard Eakin and poll sci major Carlos
Ochoa joined to promote the proposed organization.
Above right: Juniors Marlene and Jenee Villar also
showed their support for Latinos on campus.
Cherrier described how the organization would
help Latino students succeed.
"The forming of this group would give these
students a greater voice on campus and it would put
them in touch with similar groups she said. "It would
be good networking
Students from Venezuela, Colombia, Mexico,
Chile, Equator, Spain, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Panama,
Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Bolivia and Argentina
all showed their support for the inception of the new
organization.
Yusef Ewais, a junior and a computer science major
whose lineage is both Hispanic and Arabic, said that
ECU is going out of its way to get Latino students
together and was Impressed with the showing.
"The forming of this group will create an idea of
more Hispanic diversity Ewais said. "We have a very
diversified culture, more than just Mexican
Turner said the turnout at the meeting was impres-
sive, and that he hoped it would be indicative of
turnout in the events to come.

Construction workers broke a natural gas line south
of the Howell Science Complex while working on the

afternoon.
Upon immediately contacting Greenville Utilities
and ECU'S Facilities Services, ECU Police Department
(ECUPD) officers evacuated all individuals from the
General Classroom Building (GCB) and the Howell
Science Complex at approximately 3:30 p.m. Officers

fumes. Once individuals were evacuated safely, the
line was turned off.
"Gas was shut off by Greenville Utilities before
any dangerous accumulation of gases occurred said
ECUPD Capt. Frank Knight.
The Greenville Fire Chief then inspected all areas
surrounding the leak while police officers unblocked
traffic.
"There were minimum traffic delays, but within
an hour the road blocks were taken away and traffic
returned to normal he said.
After being evacuated from GCB, junior Phillip
Gilfus was relieved to find that nothing serious had
occured.
"They reopened the building after a couple hours,
and everything seemed the same Gilfus said. "It was
business as usual
According to Knight, this is the first gas leak to
occur on campus in the past year.
"This is definitely the first time this has happened
recently Knight said.

Attending a career fair is just one of many steps
in the career exploration and job search process.
Employers participate in these events to meet job
seekers and recruit employees.
The 11th Annual Business Career Day, sponsored
by ECU Career Services, will take place tomorrow at
8:30 a.ml p.m. on the first and third floors of the
General Classroom Building. All students and alumni
are encouraged to attend. Professional attire and copies
of your resume are required.
Interviews with recruiters will not be held at the
fair, however, students will have the opportunity to
schedule interviews to be held later on in the year. Out
of the 100 businesses that were invited to Career Day,
76 will be in attendance.
They are listed below:
1. Have a penpencil and paper available for notes.
2. Bring resumes and a folder or portfolio to hold
your materials.
3. Take the time to find out what companies will be
represented prior to the day of the career fair.
4. Research information about the participating
companies and organizations prior to approaching the
recruiters. Use the Internet, news sources and career
fair materials to learn about the companies' booths
you plan to visit. It is very impressive to a recruiter
when you know about their company and can discuss
their current situation.
5. In a career fair, use the time wisely. Determine
where employers are located and in what order to
visit them. Focus on three companies that you are
truly interested in.
6. Broaden your focus and include many types of
employers. For instance, you may not have considered
working for a hospital, but hospitals recruit and hire
professionals in many different fields (e.g manage-
ment, information systems or health care).
7. Be aware of time demands on employers. Do not
monopolize an employer's time. Ask specific questions
and offer to follow up after the fair, as appropriate.
8. Be direct. Introduce yourself, including your
name and class year. If you are job seeking, state
the type of position in which you are interested. If
you are gathering information, let employers know
that you are only interested in materials and informa-
tion. Remember to use good eye contact and a firm
handshake.
9. Make sure you learn from the recruiter employ-
ment andor hiring trends, skills necessary for different
jobs, current openings, salary, benefits, training
and other information about the organization. Also
make sure you know whom to contact for follow-up
discussions.
10. Ask the employer for the next steps in
the recruitment process and try to obtain the
employer's business card for follow-up discussions
correspondence.

Coastal weather Update
Gordon fizzles oat
After being downgraded to a
tropical depression Monday morn-
ing, what was once Hurricane
Gordon is losing its tropical charac-
teristics over the Southeast coast.
Tropical storm warnings have
been dropped for the Atlantic coast
of northern Florida, Georgia and
South Carolina. However, Gordon's
effects will still be felt, as remaining
rain bands are expected to travel
up the Atlantic seaboard over the
next couple of days.
The storm could also trigger
tornadoes across South Carolina
and southern North Carolina. At
least one tornado was reported
Sunday in Palm Beach County,
Fla. The twister reportedly struck
a mobile home park but caused no
injuries.
Gordon came ashore over the
small community of Cedar Key on
Florida's Gulf Coast about 8 p.m.
(EDT) Sunday. No injuries or deaths
were reported. Gordon generated
sustained winds of near 70 mph,
heavy rain and a storm surge with
waves more than six feet high.
An evacuation had been recom-
mended for Cedar Key, but most of
the 800 residents chose to ride out
the storm. The fishing village, about
100 miles north of Tampa, sits two
to three feet above sea level.
"It was a pleasant surprise
because it could have gotten stron-
ger out there said Don Sandsler,
whose family owns a Gulf front
restaurant and bar. "It was disorga-
nized before it got here, so we kind
of dodged the bullet here Sandsler
said.
Meteorologists with the NHC
in Miami said the storm weakened
as it approached the coast and
pulled in dry air from the Gulf of
Mexico and
the south-
eastern VS.
Stateoffi-
clals said
schools are
closed today
In the following Florida counties:
Columbia, Suwannee, Taylor, Citrus
and Gilchrist. About 200 Florida
National Guardsmen are sched-
uled to help authorities assess the
damage today.
Gordon spread rain across much
of the Sunshine State. Rain fell as far
south as Miami and the Florida Keys
last night. There was flooding in
Southwest Florida, but no reports of
major damage. Officials said about
120,000 homes and businesses lost
power; all but 11,000 were restored
by Monday morning.
Officials at the Tampa Interna-
tional Airport recommended that
travelers contact their airlines
before heading to the airport, as
the storm system delayed flights.
In addition, some airlines were not
operating on a full flight schedule.
Goodbye Florence
Tropical Storm Florence is fiz-
zling as it churns farther into the
North Atlantic.
As of 5 p.m. (EDT) Sunday, the
center of Florence was located about
45 miles northeast of Cape Race,
Newfoundland. Maximum sus-
tained winds were near 60 mph.
Florence formed last Monday
and idled for several days before
picking up speed and passing just
to the west of Bermuda over the
weekend.

Offensive ad lands
western Illinois f rat in dog
house
MACOMB, Ill.(U-WIRE)-The
Delta Tau Delta fraternity's West-
ern Illinois chapter is Y2K-com-
pliant. A recent advertisement in
the school's student newspaper
was a little too 1900 for its
own good, though, and now
the chapter is facing a wave
of suspensions, sanctions and
negative publicity.
University officials deemed
the ad, which depicted fraternity
members posing with a black-
faced lawn jockey in handcuffs,
racially and sexually insensitive,
and barred the fraternity from
participating in any of WIU's
campus activities for the 2000-01
school year.
Assistant Executive Vice Pres-
ident of Delta Tau Delta, Garth
Lberhart said that the fraternity
is working with the university
to jointly discipline the WIU
chapter. Sanctions include par-
ticipation by the chapter in
educational programs, a letter of
apology and regularly-scheduled
meetings with university offi-
cials. In addition, the university's
judicial board ordered the fra-
ternity to participate in the
school's fall leadership confer-
ence, "Take Back the Night
as well as on-campus Martin
Luther King celebrations and
the WISDOM Cultural Issues
Conference
The ad appeared in the Aug.
28 edition of the Western Cou-
rier, WIU's official student news-
paper, and immediately caused
a campus-wide eruption of both
puzzlement and outrage.
WIU University Relations
Director John Maguire says that
members of the chapter have
been swift to seak not only with
university officials but students
as well. The day the ad appeared,
fraternity members met with
the university's Black Student
Association in order to clear the
air and apologize.
Penn State student
arrested for assaulting
sleeping female students
Penn State U.
(U-WIRE)-Penn State University
police arrested a 21-year-old
student Wednesday, Sept. 13,
after he allegedly entered the
dorm rooms of 13 female fresh-
men and groped six of them as
they slept.
Hung Truong, of Harris-
burg, Pa was charged with
five counts of burglary, 13
counts of trespass, one count of
aggravated indecent assault, six
counts of indecent assault and
12 counts of harassment. A cash
bond has been set at $50,000
and Truong is currently being
held in Centre County Prison.
He faces a Sept. 20 court date.
Truong entered the unlocked
rooms of the students before
4 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 10, and
indecently touched six sleeping
women and verbally harassed
seven women who were awake,
said Campus Police Lt. Clifford
Lutz. The dorm-room doors use
a deadbolt and do not auto-
matically lock when closed.
Many of the victims
informed their resident life
coordinator, who in turn called
campus police. During the sub-
sequent investigation, several
of the victims identified Truong
in a police lineup.
Man is charged with
car jacking two college
students
CHARLESTON, S.C.
(U-WIRE)-A 22-year-old man
has been charged after two
College of Charleston students
told police he kidnapped them
at knifepoint and robbed them
of $200.
Jalal Fahem Beyah of
Charleston was charged on
Friday with armed robbery,
car jacking and kidnapping,
said Charles Francis, a police
spokesman.
Beyah is accused of forcing
his way into the women's car
shortly before 1 a.m. Thursday.
He then drove to a bank machine
and forced one of the women
to withdraw money from her
account and later fled on foot,
police said.
"We pretty much thought we
were going to die said Reed
Messer, one of the victims. "The
more I think about it, there is
so much that could have gone
wrong
Neither Messer, 19, nor her
roommate, 20-year-old Marysa
Raymond, was injured in the
attack.
"He was cussing and scream-
ing at us to give him money,
saying 'I'll cut you. I'll kill you
Messer said.
A tip led police to Beyah who
was hiding in the closet of a
vacant apartment, Francis said.

Based on the cult novel of the same name by Nick Hornby,
High Fidelity follows the "mid-life" crisis of Rob (John
Cusack), a thirty-something record-store owner who must
face the undeniable facts - he's growing up. In a hilarious
homage to the music scene, Rob and the wacky, offbeat
clerks that inhabit his store expound on the intricacies of
life and song all the while trying to succeed in their adult
relationships. Are they listening to pop music because
they are miserable? Or are the miserable because they
listen to pop music? This Romantic comedy provides a
touching and whimsical glimpse into the male view of the
affairs of the heart

Take a stand now and
fight back for what
may happen in your
future. Take Back the
Night, if not for your-
self, for others that may
need your support.
OUR VIEW
We at TEC encourage each one of you to go out and Take Back the Night.
There have been a few sexual assaults that have occurred on campus and we
have done our best to notify you, the student body, on safety precautions
to avoid the assaults. It has hit us close to home when one of the assaults
happens right out front of our building while we were inside. It frightens TEC
just as much as you, the victim.
Take Back the Night is an important event on campus. For all those who
have been through the unfortunate experience of sexual assault, attending this
event will help provide closure from the helplessness that you previously felt. It
is a way to fight back and be a victim no longer.
For those who caused the assault, you know who you are-there is no way
that you can apologize for what you did. This event, if attended, is a way to
start repenting for your stupidity and begin mending your ways. You can never
ask forgiveness for what you did but you can learn from this mistake and try to
fight for a cause to prevent future assaults that may occur.
For students who have not been invloved in any way in the matter, this
event may not mean as much. You never know though. There can be a time
when your family member, significant other, child or even yourself may be
involved in this situation. Take a stand now and fight back for what may
happen in your future. Take Back the Night, if not for yourself, for others
that may need your support.

IN MY OPINION
Issue: Health Care
f�.T�lTtT�TtTCTl
Democratic
View
AI Gore is quickly proving that
he is the best candidate in this
year's presidential election. The
vice president has gained a small
but solid edge in the polls over his
Republican counterpart, George W.
Bush. He leads Bush by at least five
points in all three major polls of
likely American voters.
Republicans might dismiss
Gore's slight lead as insignificant,
but Big Al's comeback in the polls
is a direct reflection of voter prefer-
ence for his sensible policy ideas.
While Junior Bush is congenial
and popular, his domestic policy
ideas lack substance and direction.
Gore is winning over voters by
beating Bush on the issues. U.S.
health care policy is a solid example
of an issue where Gore's superiority
over Bush is obvious.
Most people believe that Every-
one deserves competent health care
regardless of personal wealth. We
should be able to chose our own
doctors. We should have the right
to see a specialist if we need to.
We should be able to appeal any
medical decision we don't agree
with.
These are simple concepts, yet
Americans have no guarantee of
these so-called patient rights. Gore
wants to change that. He supports
a patient bill of rights that will
establish these important funda-
mentals. Bush does not. Imagine
being denied the right to use the
nearest emergency room because
you don't have insurance. Ridicu-
lous.
Another advantage Gore has
over Bush is his commitment to
American families. Many lower and
middle-class parents struggle to
pay outrageous fees for their family
health plans.
Gore believes that the federal
government has a responsibility to
help these working-class families.
The vice president wants to expand
the federal Children's Health Insur-
ance Policy (CHIP) to cover all
lower- and middle-income chil-
dren.
He also wants to include lower-
income adults in the program. His
plan would massively expand the
availability of free health care for
this country's children and adults.
Bush's plan is much smaller and
would have a negligible effect on
health care access.
The cost of prescription drugs is
a maor concern for the aging baby
boomers. Mom and Dad are getting
old! Again, Gore offers a better plan.
Gore wants to use the predicted
budget surplus as a prescription
drug benefit for Medicare benefi-
ciaries. He also will demand full
prescription benefits for those
with catastrophic illnesses. On the
other hand, Junior would waste the
surplus on a meaningless tax cut
and rely on the private sector for
prescription drug benefits.
It's unfortunate that in the year
2000 voter apathy has become
the norm in the American politi-
cal scene. We, too often hear, "It
doesn't matter, anyway Nothing
could be further from the truth.
As the health care issue demon-
strates, this election will have long
lasting implications on all of our
lives. It will matter if you break
your leg and are then denied access
to the local emergency room. It will
matter if you can't afford medica-
tion to help keep your blood pres-
sure down. It will matter if you
need a back specialist but can't
afford one.
It doesn't matter, of course, if
you own several Texas oil compa-
nies and can buy any health care
you want.
Bush will suffer as the election
wears on and as more issues come
into the public's focus. The differ-
ences between the two candidates
will be sharpened and the choice
will be clear.
Al Gore for president of the
United States.
COLLEGE REPUBLICANS
IN MY OPINION
Issue: Health Care
ammmn!
Republican
View
There are 44 million Americans
without health care in the United
States and an additional 38 million
nave inadequate health care; leaving
no doubt that there is a need for
ierious change to our current health
are system.
The Clinton administration has
reduced some cost related to health
care. Of course, reduction in the
:ost of health care has significantly
reduced the quality of service for
Americans, and hindered the ability
af medical personnel to do their
10b. One problem is the current
idministration's inability to solve
severe problems with the Medicare
iystem and prescription drug cost.
For example, Medicare, the bed-
rock of care for the elderly, There is
t good chance the current system
nrill fail by the time you need it.
Imagine all of the taxes you pay, and
ry the time you need Medicare, it
won't even exist. Another problem
s prescription drugs.
Every day, many senior citizens
nave to choose between buying
Tiedicine or food. No one should
nave to choose between medicine
ind food in a country where health
rate is second to none. It is obvious
that the demands of elderly care are
on the rise.
It is time for our generation to
make some quick changes, and take
responsibility for restructuring the
current health care system. The
Clinton administration has done
little to improve the health care
system over the last eight years;
when they have tried to accomplish
anything solid it has failed.
The Republican driven Patients
Bill of Rights is a bill that allows
individual states to continue manag-
ing consumer protection for citizens,
and guarantees emergency room
coverage to millions of uninsured
Americans. It limits the amount of
federal bureaucratic involvement in
your health care decisions.
Controlling state laws on health
care only reduces the quality of
health care that patients receive.
In fact, reducing the amount of
involvement by the federal govern-
ment will ensure better quality
health care for Americans. It will
allow you to make a personal choice
about what kind of health care you
want and need. Private health care
will only increase competition and
improve the quality of health care
you receive.
The best way for Americans
to receive health care is through
employee benefits. Currently the
economy is in great shape and most
businesses can afford to provide
adequate health care for employ-
ees.
Additionally, the unemploy-
ment rate is the lowest in many
years, shielding the slowly decaying
health care system. However, if the
economy changes, companies will
begin to cut health care benefits
and American's will pay-if they can
afford it.
Finally, let's talk about North
Carolina's hospitals. There are many
counties within North Carolina
that do not have a hospital, or
a properly funded health depart-
ment. To alleviate this problem,
Republicans are proposing $4.3
billion to expand health care in
undeserved and remote areas. We
have an obligation to make changes
in our health care system over the
next four years.
Remember that we all have the
right to good health and should
have access to the best health care
system in the world.
(,
The Daily Aztec (San Diego
State U.)It was one of the worst
dates I've ever been on
"Not only did he have bad
breath, he wouldn't quit talking
about himself
You men all dread this type of
negative feedback from us ladies
after a first date. Comments like
these can definitely knock down
any man's confidence when prep-
ping to ask a girl out for a second
date.So how is a guy supposed to
impress the woman of the new
millennium?
It may be even easier than you
think. You may have just over-
looked a few things we ladies grade
you beefcakes on. I'd like to offer
a few suggestions for you baffled
males, whose dating "batting aver-
age" has kicked you down to the
farm team.
1. Punctuality is a must. By
being on time, if not a few minutes
early, you'll show how meaningful
this date is to you.
2. Never show up empty
handed. Romance is a great way to
jump-start that first date. No need
to invest in a dozen roses, unless of
course you can afford it!
3. Don't forget to compliment
your date. Whether it's how great
she looks, how her hair shines, how
sweet she smells, or on her choice
of wardrobe, make sure it's sincere.
Even if she dismisses it as a line,
she will still appreciate it.
4. Always remember to open
doors and pull out seats. Chivalry
is rare in this day and age, but still
widely respected. Yes, we females
are extremely capable of opening
our own doors and pulling out our
own seats at the dinner table. By at
least offering to do these things for
your date, she'll notice how well
you were raised.
5. Don't forget to clean your
car, inside and out. I've heard
many complaints about how well
polished a male's method of trans-
portation initially appeared on the
outside, only to be upstaged by
last week's laundry and Jack in the
Crack leftovers.
Remember the inside of your
car may also be a reflection of
what your room looks like, so you
may want to paint a good picture
for future reference. (As a side
note, your personal hygiene can
also determine the fate of the first
date.)
6. Never bring up past relation-
ships-and don't ask your date about
hers. No one wants to hear about
your excess baggage and hang-ups.
7. Assuming this is a dinner
date, do not place her order for
her. Remember, she is capable of
making her own decisions. After
all, she did decide to go out with
you.
8. Table manners will make you
or break you. Napkin on your lap
and chew with your mouth closed.
Do not dominate conversation at
the dinner table with your list of
achievements. Play humble and if
she really digs you she will ask you
about what makes you so special.
Most importantly, save the burping
contests for the homies.
9. Assuming this is also a movie
date, don't try anything funny.
No yawning and stretching your
arm around your date without her
consent. Oh, and save the sweet talk
for after the movie. Nobody likes
a bugaboo while they're wrapped
up in the plot.
10. And finally, never assume
you deserve a kiss goodnight. She
doesn't owe you a thing-even if
you did end up picking up the tab!
'Well, there you have it.
A few pointers for those lost
souls who seem to have been strik-
ing out the last few times at bat.
Am I old-fashioned on this sub-
ject? Maybe so. But I believe a touch
of "old-fashioned" sentiment is a
good thing every now and then.
I don't profess to be an expert
on this subject. I am merely relay-
ing the complaints I've heard most
from girls who've endured bad
dates. In no way do I guarantee
you'll win over the lady of your
dreams, but should you get the
chance to go out with her-who'
knows? These simple rules may at
least get your foot in the door to;
that loving relationship.

IN MY OPINION
Green Party: an alternative solution
The 1996 presidential election
saw the lowest voter turn out since
1924. The majority, 51 percent of
voter eligible Americans, chose not
to attend on Election Day.
If one looks at following state-
wide elections and primaries an
even more record number has
opted to not participate. It Is a
growing trend in our country,
as the lines between Democrats
and Republicans blur in an ever-
expanding arena of political inef-
fectiveness, for the common Ameri-
can to throw up their hands in
apathy.
The consensus has become,
"They both suck so it doesn't matter
who I vote for If one feels that the
voting process has disintegrated
into a decision of choosing between
the lesser of two evils, doesn't that
show a problem has inherently
manifested itself in our system?
When a majority of a population
of a democratic nation is no longer
actively participating in its govern-
ment then that institution may no
longer be called a true representa-
tion of what the people want.
The realm of bipartisanship has
given way to the world of high
dollar corporate interests. It has
gotten to a point of such blatant
corruption that parties can no
longer deny their illegal actions.
Instead they ignore the points and
hide behind campaigns of finger
pointing and over-information
waiting for the storm to blow over,
letting the issue dry up and fade
away from the amazingly short
attention spans of the American
political mind.
It is In opposition to these very
acts that independent parties are
ever slowly gaining more and more
credibility as they offer alternatives
to the rotten stagnation that has
become Washington. Voters are no
longer buying Into the myth of
DemocraticRepublican blindsides
and empowering themselves to
vote Independent. One such party
quickly gaining ground in the
nation's interest is the Green
Party.
Built upon a platform of social
justice, strong community involve-
ment, and sound ecological sus-
tainability it challenges the very
notions of what our current system
has come to represent.
By its own statement of pur-
pose the Green party centers itself
around 10 key values: ecological
wisdom, social justice, grassroots
democracy, nonviolence, decentral-
ization, community-based econom-
ics, feminism, respect for diversity,
personal and global responsibility
and future focussustainability
Candidates Ralph Nader and
his running mate Winona Laduke
head the Green ticket this year
for the upcoming Presidential elec-
tions. Together they bring a new
perspective and fresh insight into
the sociopolitical justice our coun-
try deserves. Why is it, when we're
told that we live in an age of
unprecedented economic growth,
that the minimum wage worker is
making less today than (adjusting
for inflation) in 1979?
It is incongruities and decep-
tions such as this that has turned
our nation upside down and now
is the time for "change It's a small
word but a big step, some are even
afraid of it. Change is not reform.
Like a dead horse, our politicians
continue to beat our nation with
the stick of "reform
When something is broken you
don't just paint it a different color-
you fix it. Changes are necessary
and it is how we grow. What kind
of country are we living in wheni
terms like "rat race" and "dog!
eat dog world" can begin to be;
applied to our lifestyle. This is not;
the nature of the world. How can
a system that demands from its
workers longer hours at less pay be
allowed to perpetuate?
Because we let it. We ignore the
issues, let our televisions decide
our beliefs, and spend the days
feeling disgruntled and helpless.
But we're not helpless and we can
make a difference. It's a simple
messagc-you'd expect it to spread
like wildfire, but try telling some-
one. See what kind of reaction you
get and then you'll realize just how
deep our conditioning has gone. If
we are ever going to effect change
then first we need to change our
minds.
Break free from the mental
chains of weakness, apathetic indif-
ference, and powerlessness and
realize just how simple it is to
put some control back into your
life. It is this kind of message the
Green Party is trying to share this
election year. For some it might be
a new message but for all It is an
important message.
Our government is no longer
a true voice of its people and as a
result we are taking a backseat to a
world of corruption and greed. It
is up to us to change all that. The
Green Party represents that change
and this election day will give us
an opportunity to put this country
back where it belongs-in the hands
of the people.

Culture is one thing,

HOROSCOPES
Today's Birthday: Use your experi-
ence to advance. If you don't have any,
pick a career field and get some.
Aries
(March 21-April 19)
You like to be out in front of the
pack, and being perfect is one method for
making that happen. You might have to
change the old habit. Fortunately, you can.
Taurus
(April 20-May 20)
The money won't last long if you're not
careful. Don't get carried away. A trip or
higher education looks like a good invest-
ment.
Gemini
(May 21-June 21)
You and a family memberroommate
should have reached a consensus by now.
If you're ready to work together, you can
make great things happen.
Cancer
(June 22-July 22)
Don't let a co-worker hurt your feelings.
A change that affects your routine may
have nothing to do with you personally.
Watch for ways to stash more money away.
Leo
(July 23-Aug. 22)
Don't feel bad if a friend and your mate
seem like they're ganging up on you. They
might be trying to teach you something
important.
Virgo
(Aug. 23-5ept. 22)
Just because you feel stressed doesn't
mean you should give up. Sometimes you
get creative under these conditions. There's
a chance for advancement today.
Libra
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
New information could cause a change
in plans. Confer with a loved one before
you take off so you're sure to make a con-
nection later.
Scorpio
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Others may think the coast is clear,
but don't take unnecessary risks. You don't
have to be told twice; you're naturally cau-
tious anyway.
Sagittarius
(Nov22-Dec. 21)
Confrontation could lead to a valuable
learning experience. Knowing ahead of
time, you'll watch what you say. Enemies
could turn out to be your best friend.
Capricorn
(Dec.22-jan. 19)
Make the best of being stuck in a rut.
The more efficient you become, the more
you'll get accomplished. That could lead to
a raise in status, as well as money.
Aquarius
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Your only limitation is financial and
even that is not going to stop you. The
most important things in life are free,
right?
Pisces
(Feb. 19-March20)
Getting your point across may not be
easy, but try again. Talk about your frustra-
tions, but don't blame them on your part-
ner - that would make matters worse. Only
you can change your attitude.

FEATURESBRIEFS
Let's make a deal
A used Cadillac and a murdered
wife-Daniel Jones needed a used car,
and Chivous Robinson needed some-
one to kill his wife, so they made a
deal, according to testimony in a Ten-
nessee court. Jones testified he agreed
to kill Stacy Robinson, 19, and that, in
return, her estranged husband would
waive the $300 Jones owed him for
a 1986 Cadillac and a compact disc
player.
In the end, Jones didn't actually kill
her. A jury convicted Robinson of doing
the deed. In his defense, he claimed
that he knocked her down by accident
and that his new girlfriend, Antoinette
Hill, strangled her. But he admits he
threw Stacy's body into the Tennessee
River. Hill faces a later trial.
Hell hath no fury
Political rule number one: Don't
dump your wife when you're running
for reelection. U.S. Rep. Albert Wynn's
estranged and angry soon-to-be-ex is
heading the campaign of the black
Democrat's white Republican oppo-
nent, and she is beaming the following
nasty into thousands of homes in his
mostly black Baltimore district:
"Hi, this is Jessie Wynn, wife of Con-
gressman Albert Wynn. Albert Wynn
does not respect black women. He left
me for a white woman. Please help us
defeat Albert Wynn
The mink overalls
seemed unusual
Authorities charge that some of the
citizens of little Mattoon, III got rich
overnight by engaging in a scam that
netted at least $12.5 million from
some 10,000 patsies in four states who
thought they were making legitimate,
high-profit investments.
It all began to fall apart, police say,
when those profiting from the scheme
started depositing huge amounts of
money in the local bank, buying luxury
cars and tipping big at the local diner.
Things like this attract attention in a
small town. Federal indictments have
been issued.
Oh no, I'm doomed!
A 14-year-old-boy who can't swim
fell off a boat in the Adriatic Sea near
the Italian coast, and was about to
drown when he felt something holding
him up from below. It was a dolphin
known to local residents as Filippo. The
fish pushed the boy back to the boat
and swam off.
That would be going
a bit too far
An unemployed man, who was col-
lecting jobless benefits in Kassel, Ger-
many, sued the German government
because he felt he was also entitled to
four weeks paid vacation, the same as
other Germans who are actually work-
ing. He lost.
It's the principle of
the thing
An ambulance driver, who was
whisking an injured boy to a Houston
hospital, stopped for coffee and dough-
nuts on the way. The boy's injuries
were not life-threatening, but the driver
was fired anyway.

FEATURES EDrTOR
Venture downtown on Fridays from 5 p.m7
p.m. and you may stumble upon quite a happening.
An event, entitled Freeboot Fridays, takes place on
the corner of Reade and Cotanche streets on the
Friday before a home football game.
The event premiered on Sept. 8 after the
Thursday night game against Virginia Tech.
"We actually had about 350 people attend
last week (Sept. 8) said Debbie Vargas of the
GreenvillePitt County Convention and Visitors
Bureau. "We were really happy with that number
considering that the game was on a Thursday and
it was the first week
Freeboot Fridays are an after hours event mod-
eled after other North Carolina cities that foster
downtown development. This includes Raleigh's
Live at Five.
"We want downtown to be more than a place
students go to for the bars Vargas said. "We want
it to be a thriving place
Freeboot activities include a live band, an active
beer garden as well as non-alcoholic refreshments,
merchandise booths and food vendors. The inten-
tion is to include an array of people, from students
to families to residents of Greenville.
"We are really happy in having another excit-
ing venue for alumni and students to network
together and celebrate ECU as well as the Greenville
community said Carolyn Thompson, director of
programs at the Alumni Center.
"The actual purpose of Freeboot Friday is to
provide a diverse social atmosphere while encourag-
ing downtown as a destination for events as well as
business activity Vargas said.
U.S. Cellular, along with a slew of other sponsors
including the Alumni Association and University
Book Exchange (UBE), help put the event together
in order to promote unity among the community
and the students of Greenville.
"One of the most important roles that the
Alumni Association can play is to help to forge
this bond between current students and alumni
said Phillip Home, associate vice chancellor for
Alumni Relations. " it's the hallmark of this
country's greatest universities. Students will be
greatly impressed with how much ECU alumni are
interested in and want to help them.
All proceeds will go to future downtown Green-
ville community events. There will be two more
Freeboot Friday events, Sept. 22 (Pirate Club
Weekend) and Oct. 13 (Homecoming Weekend) for
residents alike to join in on the festivities.
"This event is an excellent opportunity for
students to network with several generations of
ECU Alumni Home said. "Students can enjoy a
relaxed social setting in which to meet important
contacts who will assist them in securing their first
jobs after graduation or help make introductions
to those people of influence in the professions they
are most interested in

Well, for those of you who do not stay on top of
current events, It was Parents Weekend.
"We had a turn out of 2,500 parents this year
which was much larger than last year said Laura
Sweet, assistant dean of Student Life. "I think the
weather helped though. Last year at this time we
had all just suffered through Floyd
Aside from being able to spend quality time
with their children, parents were offered endless
activities to fill their time. Friday night's concert
at Wright Auditorium was the perfect bonding
experience for parents and students. Fantastic:
A tribute to Elton John, featuring an uncanny
Elton John impersonator brought students and
parents out in droves.
The packed house at Wright Auditorium danced
and sang to Elton John classics such as: "Daniel
"I'm Still Standing "Crocodile Rock" and a
list of others. The audience participation would
have brought Elton John himself to tears. Several
couples even got up and slow danced in the aisles
during his timeless ballad, "Your Song
"The people next to me were going crazy,
singing loudly and jumping up and down said
sophomore Dawn Behling. "I thought it was great.
1 have never laughed so hard
The activities just kept coming starting Saturday
morning at 10 a.m. with the Chancellor's Recep-
tion. Molly Broad, University of North Carolina
president, spoke to a full house of parents and F.CU
faculty. Broad addressed the crowd about bond
issues and the support it will lend ECU.
"It was a great event Sweet said. "Molly was
very personable and parents had the opportunity
to meet and talk with Chancellor Eakin, who is
always very excited about meeting parents. "
The Ledonia Wright Multi-Cultural Center
provided an open house, encouraging many people
to stop by and take a look at the new center.
Lunch drew the crowds in with a traditional
down home pig pickin' provided by dining
services. Parents and students ate and socialized
until the start of the energizing game against
Tulane. What a treat it was for parents to watch
the Pirates make "The Green Wave" walk the plank
into a sea of defeat.
The game was followed by an abundance
of events for those who were not to weary to
participate, including an appropriate showing of
Gladiator starring Australian star Russell Crowe.
For those parents who had the energy left to stay
through Sunday, the ECU performing Arts series
presented, Black Watch, a very dignified group of
bagpipe performers.
"They were wonderful and the turn out was
phenomenal said senior Earline White.

Career Services helps students
find their way into working world
Jason Cox
FEATURES WRITER
We all remember walking dazed around campus
with a schedule on a piece of paper wondering if we
will ever find our way to the right building. We were
scared, lost and frantic in a new world, becoming small
fish in a big pond.
Even though we get over it and learn where
everything on campus is, there may be yet another
scare ahead for students.
So you have been here for years and are ready to
graduate, but then what? The transition from student
into the working class can be confusing and frightening
as well. ECU's Career Services, located at 701 E. 5th
Street, is in your corner to help make the transition
a little easier.
Whether a freshman worried about what major
interests or a recent graduate having a little trouble
finding a job, Career Services has something to help
everyone.
"Our goal is to do all the things to help further
students one more step towards employment said Jim
Westmoreland, who works with Career Services.
Westmoreland is enthusiastic about helping each
new face find some sort of resolution or enlightenment
with Career Services.
"We have three self service rooms with employer
information and career information, as well as a fully
working classroom where we hold various workshops
during the week Westmoreland said.
The various workshops available help students
find their ideal career, write resumes, explore various
local careers and advise them how to successfully
complete employment interviews. Each day of the
week a different seminar is held, which all students
are invited to attend.
"We help freshmen find a major based on desired
career Westmoreland said. "We help juniors prepare to
exit college and enter the workplace, as well as helping
grad students that are having a little difficulty
He also advises students to check the Career Services
Web site at www.ecu.educareer.
"There is an abundance of information there for
anyone from freshmen to graduate students and is
wonderful for our day students who may not be able to
make it to our offices as easily as the campus residents
Westmoreland said.
The process at Career Services is somewhat simple.
Students may visit the office and register themselves for
employment based on career as well as for the many
workshops available.
"I recently filled out the paper work at Career
Services and am preparing to graduate and hopefully
more easily find a job that suits me said senior Mark
LotMlD.
Lorado Is an out of state student from New Jersey
and admits that he feels safer knowing that Career
Services is preparing him to better find a job once
he graduates.
"I am not real sure what 1 plan to do after school
said senior Gray Hines. "I've been here for four years
and plan on visiting Career Services since my career at
Piggly Wiggly hasn't really taken off yet
Lorado and Hines are certainly not alone, as there
are many students who will graduate this December
or next May.
"Our office is a point of contact for employers to
meet our students Westmoreland said. He advises
students to at least stop by Career Services just to insure
they are on the right track.
Career Services also has all the information about
upcoming events and activities taking place to interest
students ready for the workplace. Students may visit
the Career Services office for information or check
the Web site.
ECU'S Career Day is Wednesday, Sept. 20th. Many
area employers will be on campus to talk to and recruit
students into the workplace. Westmoreland is excited
to see all of the employers available for students to talk
with and strongly advises students to set aside some
time to speak with any employers in their prospective
fields.

UNC-CH, Duke asked
to ban use of Napster
DURHAM (AP)-The attorney
for recording artists Metallica and
Dr. Dre want two North Carolina
universities to stop their students
from taking their music via the
Napster computer program.
Duke University and the Uni-
versity of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill have received letters from
attorney Howard King asking the
institutions to "promptly ban access
by your community to Napster
While the letter doesn't explic-
itly threaten litigation, the letter
to Duke says the university "has a
moral, ethical and legal obligation
to assure that it is not a willing
participant in and an enabler of
the theft of intellectual property
through Napster
King asked university officials to
provide their positions and instruc-
tions to students with respect to
access to Napster in institutional
networks by next Thursday.
Duke's letter arrived Monday,
while UNC-CH's arrived Tuesday.
1 he universities were among more
than a dozen King targeted.
Duke's university counsel is still
considering its response, said John
Rurness, senior vice president for
public relations. It was unclear
whether UNC had answered the
letter.
To use Napster, the program
must be downloaded onto a com-
puter's hard drive. That allows the
file sharing of Ml'3s, digital songs,
between one user's hard drive and
anyone else currently online.
Some artists see Napster as a
way to reach more people with
their music, but others see it as a
drain on their profits.
King filed suit against Napster
and three universities-Yale, the
University of Southern California
and Indiana University-for not
blocking the service. After the suit
was filed in April, the universities
began restricting access to Napster.
Neither Duke nor UNC has
restricted any access to Napster.
Both universities have started edu-
cational campaigns to teach stu-
dents that downloading copy-
righted songs equals intellectual
property theft.
Betty Leydon, vice provost
for information technology, said
Duke's computer policy "talks about
appropriate use of computing
"It doesn't refer to things like
Napster, which wasn't around"
when it was written, she said.
"We've tried to educate our students
and remind them about copyright
laws
Unlike many universities, nei-
ther Duke nor UNC-CH has had
problems with Napster overwhelm-
ing its computer networks because
the MP3 files are so large. Duke
upgraded its network to the Gigabit,
which can handle 1 billion bits
per second, up from about 100
megabits per second, Leydon said.
Jeanne Smythe, director for
computer policy at UNC-CH, said
UNC-CH normally does not ban
Web sites, but has begun educating
students.
Smythe and I.eydon said they
are not sure that blocking Napster is
the answer to this problem, because
so many other computer programs
that allow file-sharing are popping
up, such as Gnutella.
Blocking sites also degrades
the entire network's performance
because the network server has to
look at every message going out,
Smythe said.
Napster also faces a court battle
from the major record labels. The
U.S. District Court for the North-
ern District of California issued
a preliminary injunction against
Napster that would have shut the
service down. However, the Ninth
Circuit Court of Appeals stayed the
injunction pending an appeal to be
heard in October.

Swimmers strike gold
Americans Lenny Krayzelburg and
Megan Quann captured gold medals
Monday in Olympic swimming action.
Krayzelburg won the 100m back-
stroke, an event he was heavily favored
in. He set a new Olympic record with his
time of 53.72.
Meanwhile fellow
American, Megan
Quann took home
gold in the women's
100m breaststroke.
She defeated favorite
and world record
holder, Penny Heyns
of South Africa.
In perhaps the
most stirring race of
the day, heavy favorite, Australian Ian
"Thorpedo" Thorpe took on Dutch swim-
mer Pieter van den Hoogenband in the
men's 100m freestyle.
Van den Hoogenband broke Thorpe's
world record in the preliminaries.
The Dutchman tied the record in the
finals as he narrowly defeated Thorpe,
who took home the silver.
American basketball
teams sweep Sydney
In what came as absolutely no surprise
to anyone, the U.S. men's and women's
basketball teams continue to dominate
play in Sydney.
The men, led by
21 points from Ray
Allen cruised past
China 119-72. The
Americans got 16
points from Vince
Carter, 12 by Steve
Smith and Tim Hard-
away and 11 from
Vin Baker.
The women
improved to 2-0 as they completed the
communist double, by defeating Cuba
90-61. The women were led by Katie
Smith who was perfect from the field and
finished with 15 points.
Jeff Burton wins
in New Hampshire
On a track that claimed two lives this
season, Jeff Burton showed no fear in win-
ning, the Dura Lube 300, Sunday.
Burton led every lap in the race as he
won his second restictor plate race of the
season. Burton won the Pepsi 400 earlier
this year, also a restrictor plate race.
Bobby LaBonte and Dale Earnhardt
made it interesting, coming close to
snatching the lead from Burton on many
occasions.
With the win, Burton jumped up two
spots in the Winston Cup points race. He
now trails only LaBonte by 168 points.
Bruins jump to top 10
With wins over two teams ranked third
in the nation, the UCLA Bruins jumped
co No. 8 in the AP Poll

Pirates rebound to stop Green Wave
PIRATES - 37 TULANE -17
Offense switches gears
to key second half outburst
Stephen Schramm
SPORTS miTOR
In the off week they had prior to facing the
Pirates and in the year since the two learns last met,
the Green Wave moved well beyond the pass-happy
offense and suspect defense of last season. The
improved Tulane team had F.CU frustrated for two
quarters Saturday. The result was the same as the
Pirates blew past the Green Wave in the second
half, winning 37-17.
"They had a week to prepare for us said ECU
defensive lineman Devotie Claybrooks. "Coach
Rose (Defensive Coordinator, Tim Rose) said they
were going to come out with some new wrinkles
so be surprised
In the first half, those wrinkles, on both sides of
the ball, put the ECU defense on their heels and led
to a 14-13 Tulane lead at halftime.
"They ran the ball a lot Claybrooks said. "We
weren't prepare for that in the first half
In the first two quarters, the Green Wave piled up
169 yards on the ground, lailback Mewelde Moore
ended the half with 115 yards, while quarterback
J.l Losman had 32.
Losman, started in place of injured junior Patrick
Ramsey, the freshman gave the Pirate defense fits
early with his mobility. He ended the afternoon
with 299 yards and two touchdowns passing and 40
yards on the ground.
"He's a very elusive quarterback said ECU line-
backer Pemell Griffin. "He's going to be very good in
the future. J.P. is very agile. He has a good arm and
he scrambles well
Losman got the Tulane offense moving early. In
the first quarter, he led the Green Wave on a 13-play
scoring drive that culminated in a touchdown pass
to Kerwin Cook.
On offense, the Pirates began slowly as the Green
Wave defense worked in their new wrinkles.
"They did not play much man coverage against
Ole Miss, which is the only film we had said ECU
Head Coach Steve Logan. "Suddenly all we saw was
man-to-man coverage. So some of the times he was
missing, our receivers were running against a zone
type coverage, when in fact they should have kept
moving
The new coverage kept the ECU passing attack
grounded as quarterbacks David Garrard and Richard
Alston combined to go .Vfor-20 for only 51 yards.
"There was a feeling out process early on with
what they were doing on defense Logan said. "It
suggested that we throw deep ball and run the option
and that's about it
Garrard and the Pirates answered Losman's drive
with a 10 play drive that ended with a Garrard
touchdown run around the left side to tie the game at
seven all with 12:16 left in the second quarter.
Not to be outdone, Losman found Adrian Burnette
in the back of the end zone with 4:11 left in the quarter
to put Tulane up 14-7.

Above: ECU'S Kevin Miller
rebounded from a
missed extra point in the
first half to hit his next
three PATs as well as a
21-yard field goal.
The Pirates answered with a Garrard option play
to Leonard Henry that covered 20 yards and gave
the Pirates their second score.
Kevin Miller missed the extra point and ECU
went into the half down one.
In the second half, the ECU defense kept the
Green Wave offense from doing more damage.
"We really had to come out (and) redeem
ourselves because no team has just come out of
the blocks and just scored points on our defense
and we really pride ourselves on that said nose
guard Mbayo Ahmadu. "We just knew we had to
make a lot of changes and shut them down in the
second half
"Hirst half we came out sluggish Griffin said.
"In the second half we wanted to come out and
make a statement that we are a good football
team
The defense proved their point, holding the
Green Wave to just three points and 19 yards
rushing.
'Ihe offense opened up as well. Taking what the
Tulane defense was giving them, the Pirates scored
24 points and racked up 201 yards passing.
"They were playing a nine man front and man
to man coverage Logan said. "That's all there
was to it. They came in the game and said 'your
not going to run the football That left us with
throwing the ball deep, which we did well, and
running the option and that's it. We ran the option

Conspicuously absent from Saturday's 37-17
victory over Tulane, were running back Jamie Wilson
and halfback Marcellus Harris. Both took the week
off to get over some nagging injuries.
Wilson sat out with an abdominal strain and
Harris was sidelined with an injured thumb.
"We get into a cycle of 'I can't practice Sunday,
Tuesday, Wednesday I think I can practice a little bit
Thursday, I feel pretty good Friday, now I'm going
to play said Head Coach Steve Logan. "Then they
get stung in the game and it starts over again. So
we gambled and held both those men out. They
could have played but we're just trying to break
that cycle and get them to where they can practice
full speed
Special teams improve
Following the loss to Virginia Tech last week, a
lot of fingers were pointed at ECU'S special teams.
Versus Tulane, the squad performed better. However,
they were not perfect.
"Our special teams were very good today" said
Head Coach Steve Logan. "1 was disappointed in Kevin
Miller. He flat missed a PAT which is uncharacteristic
of him. But maybe we'll flush all of this stuff out
of our system
The ECU punt team played well above their
showing against the Hokies. Freshman punter Wes
Helocker kicked well and long snapper Ryan Luckadoo
rebounded from Thursday night. Following one punt,
Luckadoo hustled downfield to down the kick Inside
the Green Wave 2-yard line.
"Our punt team was excellent Logan said. "We
had an excellent punt team today. We covered well,
we snapped well. 1 was proud of them
Stokes bad luck continues
Kick returner Keith Stokes began the game with
a familiar sight. The senior took the opening kickoff
96 yards to score the games first touchdown. Or so
everyone thought.
Much like last year, when Stokes had three kicks
called back, this one would not stand. The referee
called Stokes out at the Tulane 45-yard line.
"You've just got to put it behind you and try to
run the next one back Stokes said.
Full bleachers
Maybe it was Tulane. Maybe it was the weather.
Whatever it was that drew Pirate fans to the game
Saturday, it worked.
The 38,517 fans that packed Dowdy-Ficklen
Stadium, made a larger-than-usual crowd for a C-USA
game.
"I was tickled said Head Coach Steve Logan. "I
walked out and did my usual glance to see what it
looked like and saw lots and lots of folks. I think,
and 1 do hope, that our people, our constituency, are
getting clued in to conference football. Conference
football games are meaningful. They were doing the
right things. Our fans were outstanding on third
down, getting our defense fired up. There were a lot
of them out there too. That is a very gratifying feeling
for our players and our coaches
Must-win game?
While the date with Tulane may not have drawn
much attention from casual fans, the ECU coaching
staff put much stock into getting a win in the
conference opener.
"We circled two games on our schedule that
we had to win this year said Head Coach Steve
Logan. "Duke and of course Tulane, being your first
conference game. You want to win your opener and
your want to beat anybody In the Carolines, you
certainly want to win you conference opener

SENIOR WRITER
Another out of state tournament, another 2-1
record and another set of two Pirates selected to the
all tournament team.
Thus far, the ECU volleyball squad has performed
well at the handful of tournaments they have attended.
This weekend, the Pirates competed in the Maryland
Invitational and were able to churn out two big
wins before getting knocked off by the host team,
Maryland.
"I think we really stepped it up this weekend. We
improve in every tournament, it took us to the next
level said sophomore Mandi Orban.
Senior Cinta Claro continued her strong early season
play being named to the all tournament team along
with junior Whitney Brawner. Their performances as
well as the rest of the llrates, keyed another successful
tournament run that allowed the Pirates to extend their
winning streak to five matches before the loss to the
Terrpins. The Pirates' record now stands at 7-3 after
going 2-1 at three consecutive tournaments.
"I was thoroughly impressed with our performance
as a team said senior Luanda Mason. "We took care
of business and got the job done. Even though we lost
to Maryland, they are a wonderful team and we stuck
with them the whole time
Tournaments such as this one are designed to let
teams know where they stand as far as their skills
going in to regular season games, and it looks like
the Pirates have found out a lot about themselves in
the past few weeks.
"We came out against William 6r Mary and played
a solid match and controlled the nets well while
playing together as a team said first-year Head Coach
Colleen Farrell. "Against Maryland, we came out flat
and we really didn't look ready to play. Maryland is
a good team, but we were tentative and they took
advantage

very well. So it was nice to have
that diversity in our offense to have
places to go to get some answers. It
just takes a while to get the answers,
that's the problem. We did finally
get there
In addition to throwing deep,
the Pirates also found success run-
ning the option. Garrard and Alston
finished the day with 164 yards on
the ground.
"They were blitzing a lot and
playing man to man. But once
we found out that they were soft
with the option, we just started
exploiting that
In the third quarter, the Pirates
began their scoring with a Miller
21-yard field goal.
Later in the quarter, facing
a fourth-and-one on their own
46-yard line, ECU gambled.
With the punt team out On the

ask for a measurement.
"We were going to punt the
football, until 1 went down to the

it so I could see what we were deal-
ing with Logan said. "It was really

Garrard took the snap and dove

"We made it by six inches and

"It was big said offensive line-

The conversion took the wind
out of the Tulane sails and gave the
Pirates a boost.
With the drive given new life,
Garrard hooked up with split end
Arnie Powell for a touchdown pass
that covered 41 yards, putting ECU
on top 23-14.
In the fourth quarter, Garrard
threw another long scoring pass,
this one to Torey Morris, who
fought off a would-be tackier at the
18-yard line and easily ran into the
end zone.
After a Tulane field goal, the
Pirates scored again, when Alston
led a drive that covered 72 yards
and ended with a 26 yard pass to
Derrick Collier.
The touchdown put the Pirates
ahead 37-17 and secured ECU's first
C-USA win of the season.

(AP)-When five of the nation's
top 15 teams lose on the same day,
there's bound to be some changes
in the college football landscape.
Take UCLA, a 4-7 team a year
ago and overlooked in the pre-
season polls. After beating a No.
4-ranked team for the second time
in three games�a 23-20 win over
Michigan�the Bruins catapulted to
No. 6 in this Week's Al media poll.
And coach Bob Toledo declared his
team is back to top-notch status.
"This is a five-star game, this
game was for the program Ibledo
said after backup Ryan k( ami
threw for 236 yards and two IDs
against the Wolverines. "If we are
going to be among the elite teams
in the country, we had to make a
statement today. I think we made
that statement
McCann made his statement.
"I think we proved we were the
No. 1 team in the nation he said.
"1 don't know who else we can beat,
or what else we can do
At this early juncture, who's
going to argue? The lop 25 under-
went a major reshuffling, with
lexas, Tennessee I'urdue and Ala-
bama joining Michigan as the big
losers.
Stanford beat Texas 27-24 and
the l.onghorns plummeted 10spots
to No. 15; Tennessee fell two places
to No. 13 after a final-seconds 27-23
loss to Florida. Purdue lost to Notre
Dame 23-21 on a last-play tield
goal and fell eight spots to No.
21; and Alabama was outplayed
by Southern Mississippi 21-0 and
tumbled out of the poll. Michigan
dropped seven spots to No. 10.
The results left fans wondering
what to make of the 2000 season.
For now, we know this:
�The Pac-10 is back, led by,
UCLA, which started the season
unranked. Washington and USC
are in the top 10, too. Next up for.
the Bruins? At Oregon, which has a
16-game home winning streak.
�Alabama still isn't ready to;
challenge for a national title, no,
less defend its SEC West crown.
�Perm State is worse than any-
body thought. South Carolina is
better than anybody thought and
Notre Dame is playing with a pas-
sion that's been missing for years.
�Virginia lech isn't a one-year
wonder.
�Tennessee still can't beat Flor-
ida.
�Nebraska and Florida State
remain a solid 1-2 in the polls.
There's more, such as Auburn,
Iowa State, North Carolina State
and Pittsburgh without a loss and
Colorado, Army and Navy without
a win. Then again, it's a little early
to judge which way these teams
will go.
The Pac-10 is 16-4 in non-con-
ference games, with UCLA, Wash-
ington and USC all undefeated
and owners of a bunch of big-time
victories. In addition to their win
over Michigan, the Bruins (3-0)
beat then-No. 3 Alabama on Sept.
2 the Huskies won at Colorado
17-14 a week after beating then-No.
S Miami 34-29; and the Trojans,
idle Saturday, have wins over Penn
State and (Colorado.
