Melyssa Ojeda
The Office of Intercul-
tural Student Affairs is
planning on giving fresh-
men minority students a
greater chance for success
by offering a new peer
mentor program at ECU.
The S.T.A.R. (Striving
to Attain Results) Peer
Mentor Program enables
all full-time undergrad-
uate students in good
academic standing to
help freshmen deal with
both academic and social
The program aims to
train sophomore, junior
and senior level student
volunteers to become pro-
fessional counselors who
will work with freshmen
having difficulty adjusting
to college life.
"We hope to reach
out to every student pop-
ulation and encourage
them to reach back to
incoming student said
Dr. I.athan Turner,
assistant vice chancellor
for Intercultural Student
According to Turner,
the first two weeks of the
program, set to begin in
the fall of 2001, will be
the most critical for fresh-
,men as they learn better
ways of assimilating.
"We need to do as
much as we can on
campus Turner said,
"Ibecause) not everyone is
as prepared as the current
group of students now
Mentors will spend
a couple hours a week
with the freshmen they
are assigned to, taking
part in activities ranging
from the academic, such
as tutoring, forming study
groups and giving tips on
which classes a mentee
could have the most suc-
cess with, to the extracur-
"Hair cuts, shopping
trips, church-any com-
munity-type events where
the mentee is learning
extracurricular network-
ing will be encouraged
Turner said.
Names of potential
mentors will be gathered
this December and a grade
check will be completed.
In March 2001, all men-
tors will train for a day
with Turner to hone their
interpersonal skills. A list
of freshmen, compiled
from summer orientation
and various ads sent out to
parents of incoming fresh-
men, will then be sent to
the Office of Intercultural
Student Affairs whereby
all mentors and mentees
will be matched Fall of
It will be up to all men-
tors to contact their fresh-
man once the semester
"We may even plan a
formal occasion in the
fall for the mentors and
mentees to get to know
each other Turner said.
Currently, three inter-
est meetings are scheduled
for the month of Octo-
ber. All students in any
major who are interested
in becoming a mentor to a
freshman are encouraged
to attend the sessions.
Potential mentors must
have close to a 2.5 grade
point and be a full-time
undergraduate student.
"This program helps
the mentor grow as an
individual as much as it
helps the mentee Turner
said. "It's a way of acting
as an ambassador to F.CU.
And It's a good resume

Role of men changes on college campuses
Men's workplace,

(TMS)-During a lunch-
time discussion last week
at Central Missouri State
University, a professor
said he had realized that
men's lives had changed
when he first saw diaper-
changing tables in men's
rest rooms.
Janice Winters, an

make sure she had heard
him right. Men's rest
rooms have diaper-chang-

Apparent murder-suicide claims
Clemson U. student's life
CLEMSON, S.C. (U-WIREHn an apparent murder-suicide that shocked
those who knew him, Pendleton police stated that Clemson senior
Thomas Demar Littlejohn shot his ex-girlfriend, Anderson resident
Tashauna Gardner, and then took his own life.
Littlejohn and Gardner were discovered dead in his bedroom by his
roommate, Andrico Tanner, on Saturday, Sept. 23.
According to Pendleton Chief of Police Ken Arthur, Tanner returned
from visiting his parents in Spartanburg to find Littlejohn and Gardner
dead due to gunshot wounds. He went next door to phone the police
since the phone would not work in his Edgewood Square apartment. The
phone in I.ittlejohn's room had been taken off the hook, stated Arthur.
The 911 call took place about 9:35 p.m. that Saturday.
Gardner was fully dressed, said Arthur, but littlejohn was naked,
except for his socks. A large amount of marijuana was found underneath
his body, "but 1 don't think that's important. It's kind of gross said
"It was definitely more than a pound Arthur said of the marijuana
found in the room. Toxicology reports on the bodies were are not
yet available to determine whether or not the couple had been using
the drug.
MEN from page 1
one another, the changing roles,
how the roles complement one
Dan Duhamell, who oversees
six residence halls at CMSU, said
he was glad the focus had finally
shifted to men.
"It's not something campuses
usually embrace he said. "People
don't talk about men. I've heard
other people on campus say there
are more important things to con-
centrate on than that
He required his resident hall
advisers to attend Thursday's lecture
by Michael Kimmel on "Getting
Inside Men's Roles Kimmel has
written several books on manhood
and teaches men's studies at a
campus of the State University of
New York.
Duhamell said his staff was
trained to deal with issues such as
race and sexual orientation, but
not on how masculinity affects
"Men are coming to college less
and less, and when they're here,
they're less successful he said.
"They're more likely to engage in
high-risk behavior. We need to find
out why men are doing that and
find out what we can do to push
them in another direction
But some women on college
campuses are uncomfortable, even
upset, about the increasing atten-
tion paid to men and their roles.
Many female professors and
students fought to be accepted in a
world of higher education that for
centuries did not admit women.
They have succeeded in adding
women's writing, art, history and
health issues to a male-oriented
curriculum. They hare spoken
out against sexual harassment on
campus and against an academic,
system they think devalues worn
en's contributions.
"Men have been the dominant
force and haven't had to pay atten-
tion to women said Mary Dee.

national newsletter "Women in;

To (r)ose of you who have
Napster, we think it is
not cool to show that you
spend all your time on
the Internet secluded from
society. Co out, have fun
and listen to some music
that is complete and not
downloaded off the Inter-
net from a program cre-
ated by a college drop-out
who had too much time on
his hands.
What can we say about Napster, the music application introduced to the
Internet surfers of the nation?
First thing is the music. Are people so cheap that they can't go out and
purchase a CD or cassette? Now we know college is expensive but you can
fork out $15 if need be. For those of you who think you are getting a great
deal by downloading the music off of Napster, think again. Some of the
songs cut off right in the middle.
What about the quote: "Thou shall not steal?" Guess what? With every
song that is downloaded off of Napster, you are stealing from the artists
and they do not make any profit.
No profit means that your favorite artist may go bankrupt. Think about
your favorite musician going out of business. No artist means no music. If
there is no music, what are we going to do on those long rides in the car?
Sing to ourselves and listen to AM talk radio?
As college students, we are the strongest consumers of entertainment
media. We listen to music to study, to party and to relax. Do you know
who created Napster? Shawn Flanning, an 18-year-old college dropout
who was thinking of something to do while wasting his time sprawled
out in his uncle's office.
Love it or hate it, Napster has made a difference in everyone's life.
Rethink what you are doing when you start downloading the music from this
program. Stop this controversy, go back to the old-fashioned way and start
purchasing the CDs to give something back to the artists who work so hard
to give you the music you enjoy.
To those of you who have Napster, we think it is not cool to show that
you spend all your time on the Internet secluded from society. Go out,
have fun and listen to some music that is complete and not downloaded
off the Internet from a program created by a college drop-out who had
too much time on his hands.

"Suspect" does not mean guilty
CHAMPAIGN, 111. (Daily lllini)-
Monday night the House passed
new legislation that would subject
accused rapists to an HIV test if the
accuser asks for one to be done. It
passed 380-19.
The rationale behind the pass-
ing of this legislation is based
on the availability of drugs that
stand an 80 percent chance of stop-
ping infection of the virus if taken
within a few days of exposure. For
victims of rape who are attacked by
someone who is infected with HIV,
it could mean life or death.
This is a move that supporters
say, for once, puts the rights of the
victim before those of the perpetra-
At the same time, however, this
bill throws the concept of due
process out the door. The privacy

mistakes are made, and suspects
are proven innocent in a court of
This bill offers no restriction
on the accuser for publicizing the
results of the test.
Accusing someone of rape does
not make them guilty. Someone
who fears he or she has been raped
by someone who is infected with
HIV (or any other disease) wants
to know while something can still
be done. But obviously, if someone
has been raped, has reported it and
has identified a suspect, he or she
feels pretty sure about who did this
horrible thing to them.
When a rape victim finds out
the results of someone's HIV test
and it is positive, and believes
that this person has raped them
(mistakes have been made in iden-
tity many times), the victim is not
going to be worried about protect-
ing this person's reputation. In
the mind of a victim, this person
is already guilty. While this is
understandable, it is not fair.
Finding out if a suspect is HIV
positive is important, but only
to three people: the suspect, the
victim and the doctor who does
the test.
Something must be written into
this legislation to protect whether
the results of a suspect's HIV test go
public through the victim.
What would happen if an
accused rapist is not actually a
rapist, but he or she is HIV positive?
The law says that a person's HIV
status is private, and as much as we
all would like to believe that people
who have HIV are not discriminated
against because of their status,
a person's reputation is at stake.
Being falsely accused of rape is bad
enough in and of itself. system in our country
specifically states: "Innocent until
proven guilty While the use of
this HIV test within days of an
accusation could save the lives of
victims, it needs to be approached
with the utmost care- which means
that the accusers must not be able
to reveal the results of the test and
will face punishment if they do.
Princetonian)-Always avoid anyone
who employs excessive or otherwise
annoying alliteration. This maxim,
grounded as it is in the indisputable
principles of continental herme-
neutics, has served me well over
the years.
For one thing, it prevented me
from supporting the candidacy of
George W. Bush. With his selection
of such slogans as "A Reformer
with Results" and "Prosperity with
a Purpose this "Compassionate
Conservative" revealed himself to
suffer, not only from severe dyslexia
and clinical WASPishness, but also
some sort of strange variant of
Tourette's syndrome that might
leave him, if elected, blurting out
such phrases as "Pass the pork
pie please, Papa in the midst of
delicate negotiations with the likes
of Inder Kumar Gujral.
It was thus with considerable
trepidation that I first perused
Princeton's booklet titled "Rights,
Rules, Responsibilities And, sure
enough, my suspicions were sound.
For University regulations include
clauses that severely curtail stu-
dents' freedoms of speech and
I speak, of course, of those pas-
sages on page 55-smack dab in the
middle of the ironically Caucasian-
flesh-toned "orange pageswhich
deal with the relatively recent Uni-
versity ban on the Nude Olympics.
Admittedly, the Princeton admin-
istration has full right to prohibit
undergraduates from engaging in
activities that violate cherished
norms of public decency and geni-
tal warmth.
If the "RRR" merely banned
the Nude Olympics themselves,
I would still have some aesthetic
objections to the code, but my
civil liberties arguments would be
utterly defanged.
No tyrannical power, however,
is ever content with merely control-
ling the pale, flabby frames of
its subjects. It seeks to control
their every word, nay, their very
thoughts. "The undergraduate stu-
dent body the "RRR" thus reads,
"is advised that they may not
attempt to organize or engage in
any activity that is perceived to
perpetuate gatherings or events
that contain or encourage some
or all of the behaviors that have
been associated with past Nude
If you didn't get lost in the twist
and turns of the rule's legalistic
syntax, you may notice something
rotten buried deep within. Not only
is the actual coed naked cavorting
that marked the Nude Olympics
of yesteryear prohibited by our
Orwellian administration, the very
advocacy of a return to these tradi-
tions-any "activity" that might
be "perceived" to "encourage"
the Nude Olympics-has also been
declared verboten by the Princeton
powers that be.
Any protest, any organized dis-
sent-even any collective expression
of discontent with the prohibition
on Yuletide streaking-renders a
student, under this draconian code,
"subject to suspension from the
University for a period of at least
one year If I were an undergradu-
ate, it is conceivable that the com-
position of this very column could
have gotten me run out of town
like a common criminal.
There, however, is the rub. For
the nefarious text in question makes
it all too evident that its strictures
on this matter apply only to under-
graduates. The graduate student
body is free to experience the joys
of winter shrinkage any time it
wants to do so.
The only problem, of course, is
that the graduate student body, as
we ourselves are more than willing
to admit, does not consist of the
sort of people you would want to
see running about in the buff.
Believe me. I share a shower
with a good percentage of the first-
year class. We grads are also free,
however, to advocate a return of the
Nude Olympics for undergraduates.
This advocacy, moreover, can be
performed while keeping the but-
tocks fully hidden behind opaque
fabric. ,
It is for this reason that I am
calling on my clothed graduate col-
leagues to join me in the creation of
a new organization: the Graduate-
Undergraduate Alliance for Nude
Olympics. Undergraduates are wel-
come to join G.U.A.N.O. as well,
but the Stalinesque persecution
that would result from their doing
so would presumably serve as a
formidable disincentive.
It was the Lorax that knew, as
the trees have no tongues, another
was needed to speak on their behalf.
Today, unjust laws have reduced
the undergraduates of Princeton
to a state of almost arboreal mute-
ness on the subject of the Nude
Olympics. It is we, your elder peers
and preceptors, who are left to
fight your oppression at the hands
of an administration as cold and
unfeeling as a testicle exposed to
the December elements.
And come the first snowfall
of the season, it will be we, your
defenders, who will be enjoying
the obscenely joyous spectacle of
your newfound liberty.
Men don't have it so easy
Massacre in Palestine is crime
ATHENS, Ohio (The Post)-Ah,
the life of a male college student.
Five minutes to shower, two to
dress, 30 seconds to find a hat and
then he's out the door without
another look in the mirror.
Men have it easy in the appear-
ance department, right? Maybe
The debate about healthy body
image has made its way into the
national consciousness, but the
problem generally has been attrib-
uted to women-particularly teens.
We are finding out that this
generalization is not accurate. Men
increasingly are becoming affected
by media images of perfection and
a compulsion to attain a body that
is, for most, unattainable. From
compulsive exercising to an obses-
sion with perfection, some men are
adopting unhealthy ideas about
body image.
Many factors could be contrib-
uting to the trend, including an
ever-growing emphasis on visual
culture and the emergence and
increasing popularity of men's
magazines, such as Maxim, which
mimic women's fashion and beauty
magazines. While images and arti-
cles demanding aesthetic perfec-
tion have bombarded women for
decades, men are being exposed to
the same screaming pictures, too.
And for men, sometimes attain-
ing the perfect body is more difficult
than it is for women who want
to lose weight. For one thing, not
all men are trying to lose weight.
Many are trying to gain weight to
build muscle mass. Health food
stores advertise products such as
nutrition supplement powders,
which can be dangerous if not used
For another, the resources avail-
able to women who are struggling
with body image are not as acces-
sible for men. Because such prob-
lems are traditionally associated
with women, many men do not
know if they have a problem. And
they do not know who to go to for
It is important that psycholo-
gists, doctors, family members and
friends recognize distorted body
image issues cross gender lines.
In an age when plastic surgery
is becoming as commonplace as
dental braces, men and women
desperately are looking for quick
ways to get the perfect body.
The reality is there is no perfect
The beautiful people who
appear on television and in maga-
zines have crews of people-hair
dressers, stylists, nutritionists and
graphic artists working on their
appearances. Most magazine photos
have been touched up with graph-
ics programs, erasing blemishes
and even shaving off pounds. And
that's fine because it is their job to
look good, to provide viewers with
a small dose of fantasy.
But no one should have to feel
alone or inadequate because he or
she does not measure up to society's
version of perfection. Remember
what your parents told you: It's
what's on the inside that counts.
Challenge yourself to feel com-
fortable with and accept your body.
And today, find one or two things
about yourself that you like. Look
inside and outside.
Remember, you don't have to
be perfect to be attractive. You just
have to be you.
More than 80 Palestinians have
been killed over the past few days.
One of them was a 12-year-old
boy and another was a 2-year-old
girl. Many more lie in hospitals
in critical condition. What crime
did that little girl commit? What
was the reason for such a harsh
They were killed by Israeli troops
who were firing live ammo into
a group of unarmed people that
had absolutely no way to defend
themselves. The use of such force in
unjustifiable and the punishment
for such actions has to be harsh.
The United Nation's security
council has approved a resolution
condemning the use of excessive
force against the Palestinians. Even
with this resolution in the works,
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak
issued a 48 hour deadline for Pal-
estinians to stop protesting for
their own rights or he will use "full
force" to violently seize the group
of unarmed protesters in which
more innocent children will be
hurt and killed.
This, along with the bloody
history between the two nations
goes to prove that peace with Israel
Is not possible. Any peace talks are a
waste of time and effort. Even if by
some miracle the two leaders were
to reach some sort of an agreement,
it would not be taken into effect.
The reason: the Israeli government
will reject any agreement which
requires them to compromise what-
soever, no matter how small the
compromise, making the peace
agreement invalid.
Knowing this, Ehud Barak
would never give into any of the
Palestinian demands, especially
since this would cause him to lose
support within his country and
most likely his office.
Since peace with Israel is impos-
sible, the peace talks are useless and
a big waste of time. There needs to
be a strong Palestinian army which
can launch back more than just
rocks in the face of live ammo. This
would cause the Israeli Government
to think a little bit more before
giving an ultimatum such as the
one given by Prime Minister Ehud
There also needs to be addi-
tional support from other countries
for peace in the region. Counties
such as Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt
should also be there to back up the
Palestinians in case something like
this were to happen in the future,
which is guaranteed to happen
and anybody who knows anything
about the history of this region
would agree.
It is apparent that the United
States is not able to be a very useful
factor in this equation, since it
either hasn't been able to stop the
violence or since it hasn't taken the
real initiative to do so. Pressuring
someone to come to the peace talk
table isn't going to solve anything.
As you know, anybody that has
attacked its neighboring region
in the past decade has met severe
sanctions from the United States
and its allies. Whether it was the
actions of Slobodan Milosevic in
Yugoslavia, the attack on Kuwait
by Iraq or the nuclear testing by
Pakistan and India, there have been
consequences. In many cases, they
were economically devastating.
Now, Israel has gone as far as
using helicopters to attack civilian
vehicles, including ambulances.
It's a wonder where the sanctions
are now.

Falkland Islands
Travel-Adventure Series takes
patrons to the sea and back
Earline White
A cinematic adventure is about to
take place. The ECU Travel-Adventure
Eilm and Theme Dinner Series will
feature "The Falklands-Refuge in the
Sea" at 4 p.m7:50 p.m. on Oct. 24 in
Hendrix Theatre.
A scattering of remote, windswept
islands in the South Atlantic are the stars
of a fascinating travelogue produced
by award-winning filmmaker Richard
C. Kern. Kern will personally narrate
the film.
It wasn't until 1982 when the
war between England and Argentina
exploded into international headlines,
that the Falkland Islands ceased to be
overlooked. These islands, located 300
miles northeast of South America's
southern tip, were isolated for nearly two
centuries. Kern will guide the audience
through the islands' people and places
and it's myriad animal and bird life,
which includes five species of penguins.
"It is fortunate that the 1982 war
was fought in the winter when the
penguins were at sea Kern said. "Both
the penguins and seals returned safely to
their rookeries only months later
The first stop on the tour of the
Falklands will be Stanley, the capital,
where over half of the Falkland's 2,000
permanent residents live. The other
islanders live in small, isolated settle-
ments in which sheep ranching provides
the primary industry on the island. The
film explores a sheep ranch and then
joins the islanders In their celebration of
the Christmas season.
Kern attended Colgate University
where he conducted an independent
study of Florida spiders that won a
National Science Grant and nationwide
publicity. His photos later appeared in
"National Geographic
After graduation, Kerns joined the
Navy and served in Vietnam on a
destroyer escort as as officer-in-charge
of a swift boat in the Mekong Delta.
After his return home, he began teaching
biology in Miami and became the co-
owner of 400 acres of Florida cypress
wilderness. Here he made his first.
Kern's interest in education prompted
him to develop a film-lecture series. The
series, funded by grants and corpora-
tions, has been seen annually since 1978
by 30,000 junior high school students.
His films have been acclaimed "the best
of the year" by the Maryland Academy
of Sciences, won an Oscar at the North
Shore Sunday Evening Club, and was
called "a pictorial masterpiece" by the
Buffalo Society of Natural Sciences.
"I am really surprised more students
don't attend said Carol Woodruff,
marketing director. "These films go to
places all over the world and is a great
opportunity for students who can't go to
Hawaii or the Grand Canyon. It is good
to find out what these places are like

and oftentimes the films show not only
highlights of the region, but because the
filmmakers have a point of view that
is off the track, they show interesting
things you would likely not see

Fellow. "I think this is a great chance for

The audience is primarily from the
community. Attendance for the film is
around 400-500 people and the dinners
attract around 150 people.
You can enhance the travel experi-
ence by adding a theme dinner to your
itinerary. The optional dinner features
regional cuisine, in which the patrons
will be treated to enticing menus, cos-
tumed servers and an elegant buffet
that makes the film adventure complete.
The deadline to make reservations is
Oct. 19.
Film and dinner tickets to "The
Falklands-Refuge in the Sea" are avail-
able at the Central Ticket Office. The
film tickets are $6, dinner tickets are
$12. Students may use their ECU meal
plans and declining balance to purchase
the dinners. ECU students may receive
up to two film tickets for free by bring-
ing their ECU One Card to the Central

The remaining stops in the film series
will include Hawaii and Tahiti, France,

will be holding back to back events
this week to celebrate jazz and
African-American Greek life.
Students and faculty are invited
to join-in on a tribute to jazz as per-
formed by Carroll Dashiell, assistant
professordirector jazz studies at
KCU. "Taking Ellington's A-Train
through a History of Jazz" will be
brought to life at 7 p.m. on Oct. 11 in A. J. Fletcher
Recital Hall. Dashiell and various guest artists from the
School of Music will explore the history of jazz.
"Anytime events of this nature are offered on
campus, we encourage students to attend said Toni
Wood, who works for publications and marketing in
the School of Music.
Dashiell, a Howard graduate, has been recognized
for excellence in the music industry as a bassist,
musical director and also a composerarranger. In
the past, Dashiell has performed with such names
as the Boston Pops, National Symphony and the
Philharmonic Orchestras. In addition, he has been
included on various CD recordings such as Capitol (Blue
Note) Records artists Bobby Watson and Horizon.
"In this case, music of a special type, culturally, will
undoubtedly enhance their education said Blood.

Early mistakes lead

ECU headed into Saturday's game at Memphis
with hopes oi returning to the city in December to
play in the Liberty Bowl. A pair of fumbles and a
coach's son conspired to make that a much more
difficult proposition.
Thanks to a first quarter that saw the Tigers score
t7 points, Memphis notched its third win in 10 tries
over the Pirates 17-10.
In getting the win. Memphis had an unlikely
hero. Scott Scherer, son of Head Coach Rip Scherer
. sat third oh'the depth charts coming into this season.
After quarterbacks Neil Suber and Travis Anglin both
went down with injuries In the Tigers' earlier games,
Scherer got the start Saturday.
"1 told Scott Tuesday that there was a good chance
to start Rip Scherer said. "1 told him Wednesday
that there was a real good chance and I told him
Thursday that he was, but I was afraid that if East
Carolina found out they would try to blitz real
hard inside
Scherer made the most of the opportunity and
completed his first six passes and finished the day
going 18-25 for 175 yards.
"Scott made some nice throws and guys made
some plays Rip Scherer said. "Scott did a real nice
job and I am really proud of him
Scherer also scored his first career touchdown on
a six-yard run in the first quarter.
"(Scott is an) outstanding young man who has
a lot to be proud of IX U Head Coach Steve Logan
said. "He was not asked to do a lot, but what he did
do, he did effectively and got them into the end
zone early and did his job
The Tigers also got a strong game from running
back Jeff Sanders. Sanders overcame an ankle injury
that lias dogged him all season to rush for 132 yards
on 29 carries and a touchdown.
Sanders rushed for 29 yards on the game's open-

ing drive. The Tigers took the kickoff and proceeded
to move the ball 84 yards on eight plays, ending
with a Sanders four-yard touchdown run that put the
Tigers up 7-0.
Keith Stokes fumbled on the ensuing kickoff to give
the Tigers the ball on the ECU 23-yard line. Memphis
capitalized, scoring six plays later on a Scherer run.
Down 14-0, the Pirate offense finally got to touch
the ball with eight minutes left in the first quarter.
However, Memphis' Marcus Bell stripped the ball from
ECU quarterback David Garrard, resulting in the Pirates'
second turnover of the day.
Memphis drove inside the ECU 5-yard line before
the ECU defense stood their ground, holding the Tigers
to a Ryan White field goal.
After the Tiger's 17-point outburst in the first
quarter, the Pirates settled down. The defense, playing
without injured linebacker and leading tackier Pernell
Griffin, held Memphis to only 165 yards and no points
after their first three possessions.
"I felt good about the defense once they were
stabilized Logan said. I thought they played real hard.
Memphis just took it to us in the opening drive. Then
we turned the ball over a couple of times, and just like
that there were 17 points on the board. 1 was proud
of how they played down the stretch and didn't allow
any points in the second half
While the ECU defense kept the Tigers off balance
in the final three periods, it was the Memphis defense
that did not allow the Pirates to get anything going for
the game's first three quarters.
The Tigers kept the Pirates scoreless until Garrard
found tight end Rashon Burns in the corner of the
Volleyball team falls to Hokies
Va. Tech snaps
winning streak for Pirates
Rvan Downey
The ECU volleyball team suffered a road loss to
Virginia Tech this Saturday, ending their four match
winning streak and giving them their fifth loss of the
season. The Hokies started off fast, winning the match
3-0(17-5, 17-15, 15-13).
According to Head Coach Colleen Farrell, the loss
was due to problems on all fronts.
"Virginia Tech outplayed us and out hustled us in
every category Farrell said. "Hopefully we can turn
this around and learn from it. It wasn't a conference
match so they may have put it on the back of their
The team was never able to get focused despite
the best efforts of middle hitter Lucinda Mason, who
had 20 kills and 5 blocks, and outside hitter Whitney
Brawner, who notched 11 kills and 14 digs. Those
individual performances were not enough to lift the
team as a whole.
"It's a little upsetting because we worked so hard
for so long; to lose is just irritating said setter Lisa
Donovan. "We just lacked the mental game in that
match. We just couldn't get it together to play as
a team
After years of being the underdog, the llrates, who
are undefeated at home at 3-0 and 8-5 on the road, are
in the unfamiliar position of being the favorite. This
presents the team with a new and exciting challenge.
"Going into matches we aren't the underdogs
"It was a long ride back; it never feels good
after a loss What we need to do now is
focus on American which is this Friday. We
get another shot at Tech in the final game

anymore and we have to go out as if we are defending
something Farrell said. "We're good enough to beat
teams, not just to compete with them
That reality lends disappointment when a match
like this passes the Pirates by. They have a lot to learn
about themselves from the loss and will be spending
a lot of time at practice this week figuring out what
went wrong.
"Obviously it was a disappointment Brawner said.
"It was weird because we had a really great week at
practice. Everyone was giving their all in the drills
and we were working together as a team. Even the
pregame practice went well. We were passing it around
and people were doing well, but when we got in the
game we were flat
The team will have a while to think about the
loss before their next match against CAA opponent
American this Friday. The conference foe is sure to
gamer a lot of attention from the Pirates.
"It was a long ride back; it never feels good after a
loss Brawner said. "What we need to do now is focus
on American which is this Friday. We get another shot
at Tech in the final game of the season

end zone for a score with 11:13 remaining in the
fourth quarter.
"(The Memphis defense) played excellent today.
I thought we could have done some things on
them, but we got down by too many points too
fast which prevented us to get into our game plan
and make some different things happen. Once you
get down 17 points, it makes game plan execution
very hard to do. We just didn't execute like we
should have
After Memphis failed to convert a fourth-and-
one, the Pirates drove to the Memphis 12-yard line,
thanks in large part to a 55-yard pass from Garrard
to receiver Torey Morris. The Pirates settled for a
field goal from Kevin Miller to cut the Memphis
lead to 17-10.
"We dug ourselves a hole against a good football
team and they made all the plays they needed
to win the game Logan said. "They ought to be
commended and congratulated. We just have to
go home and regroup and get ready for the next
football game
The loss drops the Pirates to 1-1 in the conference
and puts them in a three-way tie for third in the
conference heading into next Saturday's game with
"We didn't-and 1 didn't myself-come out the way
that I thought we should have Garrard said. "We
just have to get back and get this out of our heads
and prepare for next week against Army
The loss complicates the Pirates plan of return-
ing to Memphis for the Liberty Bowl on Dec. 29.
However, they still control their own destiny. If
ECU wants its first conference title, it will have
to win the five remaining conference games on
its schedule, including a Nov. 25 away game with
Southern Mississippi.

In what proved to be one of the worst marketing
ideas since new coke, the ATP, Professional Tennis
tour, unveiled a new slogan for 2000. The ATP made
posters hyping the tour's younger male players
featuring the slogan "New balls please
Needless to say the ploy didn't catch on but
the sentiment was apt, and applicable to many
other sports.
Nowadays, the dynasties of the '90s are in their
final throes, victims of age, free agency, increasing
parity or just younger and better teams. Nowhere is
this more evident than in Major League Baseball.
For the latter half of the '90s, the Yankees,
Indians, Braves and Astros were as constant as
you could get. Each fall these four teams and a
rotating cast of four others, would congregate in the
playoffs. Each fall, the baseball fan would be treated
to the same faces, the same stories and inevitably
the same Yankees victory parade.
However, after this season, the playoffs offered a
reprieve from the same old, same old.
The only noise the Astros made this season
was the thud from them landing face first after
tripping out of the gate, or the pop of over inflated
expectations, or the crack of a Jose Lima fastball
' being sent deep into the Houston night, or
maybe I'd better stop there. Anyway, thev weren't
that good.
The Indians too stumbled early but managed to
turn it on in the second half of the season but failed,

Red Sox, to make the playoffs.
The two World Series foes of
last season, the Yankees and Braves,
both made it to October, where
they were joined by the Mets and
Giants. Also there were the Mariners
who showed that there is indeed
life after Junior. The Chicago White
Sox, who despite being bounced in
three games by the M's showed that
there is more to Chicago baseball
than Sammy Sosa and the under-
achieving "good guys
Also in the postseason were
the Oakland A's, who showed that
despite a small market and a roster
that doesn't make as much as Tiger
Woods does playing half a round of
putt putt, anyone can still compete.
The A's fell to the Yankees in five.
Finally, the St. Louis Cardinals
made it to the show. The Cards, the
darlings of the "best baseball town
in America bounced the Braves in
three straight, and it wasn't even
close. The Cards purged the playoffs
of a team that had been to every
NLCS since the Gulf War.

get this. XrDrive, the world's
first free Internet hard drive on
the desktop. You'll get the kind
of power you can always use.
Anywhere, anytime access from any Web ready computer.
Let's say you've got a private enterprise (like a term
paper, essay, or resume) and you don't want anybody
ripping off your intellectual property. Relax. X:Drive files
are password-protected. Even if you're mooching off your
roommate's computer. Or, let's say you're doing a group
project and feel like sharing. Think how much easier it'll
be if everyone on the team has access to the same files,
notes, and timetables. No matter where they are on cam-
pus (or the planet).
More good news. X:Drive gives you 25 megs of
space free (that's about the same as the 17 virus-infected
floppies you won't have to schlep around anymore).
Which brings up another nifty feature. X: Drive has this
cool Skip the Download� technology. It lets you grab
MP3s, video, and groovy pics from the Web in seconds
while you keep surfing.
So join the Party
X:Drive. It's the best
freebie on the Web.
