Third party
exclusion angers
Stephen Losey
Two ECU students
were among more than
500 activists who pro-
tested the exclusion of
third party candidates
from the presidential
debates in Winston-Salem
last Wednesday.
Students Whit Rob-
erson and Bert Rochelle
marched with the protest-
ers to the campus edge of
Wake Forest University as
presidential candidates Al
Gore and George W. Hush
debated in Wait Chapel.
The protesters were
met by about 75 police
officers in full riot gear,
including shields, gas
masks and helmets. The
police lined up in front of
a gated entrance to Wake
The protest was orderly
and there were no arrests
or property damage
during the march.
Roberson has also pro-
tested April's World Trade

Thomas Younce, assistant chief of FCU police
department (ECUPD) left the force yesterday, Oct. 16.
Younce, who has been a part of the F.CU community for
the past five years, has served the university through
events ranging from minimal campus crimes to national
events such as Hurricane Floyd. TEC recently sat down
with Younce to find out more about his decision to
leave and where he plans to go from here.
TEC: How long have you been at ECU?
Younce: I am in my fifth year now, so about
four-and-a-half years.
TEC: Are you retiring?
Younce: No, I am just moving on to another
position. I hate to leave ECU but this is just an excellent
A farewell reception for ECU Assistant Police Chief, Tom
Younce, was held yesterday afternoon in the Ward Sports
Medicine Building. Here, Willie Lee, director of University
Printing and Graphics wishes Younce great success at
his new position as director of Public Safety at NCSU. A
replacement for Younce will be chosen later this year (photo

opportunity for me professionally to move from an
assistant director position to a director position at
North Carolina State University (NCSU).
TEC: Do you feel you accomplished a lot at ECU?
Younce: Yes, I think we accomplished a lot here
and a lot has been accomplished of course with Chief
Theresa Crocker. A lot of credit goes to what she has
been able to do in the years she has been here. It has
been a pleasure to work for her, and of course the
flood last year was a traumatic event for everybody.
Fortunately, the university came through and pulled
together a routine between staff and students to do
what we could. We were successful yielding a couple of
governor's awards in the last couple years. I am proud
to have been a part of the ECU's police department.
TEC: What would you say was the biggest event that
you are going to remember here at ECU?
Younce: Well, it has to be the flood. Of course it
seemed like once I came here it was Hurricane Floyd,
Hurricane Fran and Hurricane Bertha. So the weather
has to be a big picture of it. I have been fortunate
to be in the faculty and with the criminal justice
It has been a real pleasure to work with the staff
and students and teaching. This is especially working
with the athletic programs. I think it is a great athletic
program. They got a lot of school spirit. A lot of big
things are going to happen in the future and I am
just proud to be a part of that. A lot of good things
are going to come into the police department in the
future. There are some expansion plans in the facility.
We are in the process of putting in laptops in all the
police cars. Doing some innovating things with the
electronics, we got a new communication center that
is coming on-line now.
TEC: Are you going to miss that?
Younce: I am going to miss that. 1 really am. 1
am going to miss the people. There are a lot of good
people in the police department and the university
level. I am really going to miss everybody. It was a
lot of fun.
TEC: Are you going to take what you learned here and
implement it at NCSU?
Younce: Well, yes. We have done a lot of good
things here, especially with the liaisons, hitting officers
in the residence halls, bike patrols. 1 plan to bring a lot
of those ideas to NCSU. I have a lot of experience here
and a good teacher, Chief Crocker.
Of course it is a larger university, about 10,000
more students and a larger police department and it is
right smack dab in the center in Raleigh. I am looking
to the challenge of going there, there have been some
serious problems with the administration in the police
Decked out for

Adolescent rebellion helps mask mental disorders
(TMS Campus)-In sixth grade,
when Rebekah Preston told her
mom she was depressed, her mother
told her to drink a cup of hot tea
and read "Calvin and Hobbes
Rebekah's favorite comic book. It
didn't help.
By eighth grade, thoughts of
suicide filled Rebekah's head. She
made up wills. She held razor blades
and X-Acto knives over her wrists.
By high school, she ran away
from home for days at a time, she
started abusing alcohol and her
behavior got more erratic and out
of control.
A relative told Monica Preston,
Rebekah's mother, to throw her and
her stuff out on the street until she
straightened up. A church counselor
said the problems stemmed from
her relationship with her father.
They were wrong.
Rebekah Preston, now 21 and
an art student at Pikes Peak Com-
munity College, suffers from bipolar
disorder. She has a chemical imbal-
ance in her brain that makes her
oscillate between extreme moods of
elation and severe depression, like
many teens who suffer from mental
illness, she went undiagnosed for
Experts say myths about teen
behavior and ignorance about teen
mental health have combined to
blind society to teen mental illness.
Parents, convinced that moodiness,
anti-social behavior and thoughts
of suicide are par for the course for
teen-agers, may overlook signs of
serious mental illness. The delay
could be deadly.
Family relationships with teens
grow strained, and teens grow up
feeling isolated and alone. Worse,
teens, who are more impulsive than
adults, may be inclined to end their
suffering through suicide.
But experts say by becoming
more aware of the symptoms associ-
ated with mental illness, parents
can tell the difference between
normal teen angst and bigger prob-
lems. And teens soon can be on the
road to recover)
"A strong parent-child relation-
ship increases the likelihood that
a kid will access care and feel sup-
ported said Katherine Koselka
Robredo, a therapist who treats
adolescents at the Front Range
Institute in Colorado Springs.
Until 20 years ago, the psychia-
try world believed children didn't
have the mental maturity for such
"adult" illnesses as depression or
bipolar disorder.
Minnesota students use wireless technology
(TMS Campus)-When two St.
Olaf College students found them-
selves without high-speed Internet
access recently because of a lousy
dorm-room assignment, they took
matters into their own hands.
Lacking all-important wall jacks
for plugging their PCs into the
campus computer network, Tom
Engle and Sam Evans cleverly went
the wire-free route.Using off-the-
shelf wireless-networking products,
they jerry-rigged a cabie-less con-
nection to a jack in an adjoining
residence hall. Presto! They were
hooked into the network alongside
their classmates, but with data that
reached them through thin air.
Their experience is unusual,
but becoming less so. Students
at a growing number of U.S. col-
leges, and even some K-12 schools,
use wireless connections that let
them tap into local servers and the
broader Net just about anywhere,
even outdoors, without a jack in
Such wireless hook-ups are
essentially identical to the make-
shift network the two St. Olaf
students concocted, but school-
approved and deployed on a far
greater scale with pleasingly zippy
At Minnesota State University
in Mankato, for instance, students
with properly equipped laptops can
sprawl on the grass outside public
buildings without disconnecting
from school servers. No wires are
required because special transmit-
ters scattered around campus zap
data at high speeds through walls
and across lawns.
"On a nice day, we don't have
to be cooped up" in dorm rooms
or PC labs, says Timothy Huebsch,
a laptop-packing junior. "We can
check our e-mail over by the (big
outdoor) fountain or work (on class
assignments) in Stompers Food
Court. We can eat 'n' surf
University of Minnesota stu-
dents recently gained no-wire
access, too. Several dozen Internet-
access kiosks deployed around
the school's Twin Cities campuses
double as wireless-access hubs that
provide high-speed network con-
nections to any compatible PCs
or Macintosh computers within

department. It has caused ripples
in the system in the way that they
manage their money and some of
the things that were done by the
previous administrator, so it will be
quite a challenge.
TEC: Do you think that the crime
rate is higher at NCSU?
Younce: I have not gotten the
chance to look at that. Of course
that is going to be a major focus.
The major focus of the campus
policing here, NCSU, UNC, is to
see that the students have a safe
place to learn, to experience and
to grow. A very important part of
campus policing is to provide that
atmosphere. I am sure that the
center of Raleigh has that problem
for people coming outside the
campus into campus and it is a
large campus and that creates a
challenge for those police officers
to serve that community.
TEC: What will you remember
most from ECU?
Younce: Probably the people.
Eastern North Carolina has a little
different flavor than a lot of places.
People are a lot friendlier and I
think that is something that I will
always remember. This is my first
campus policing experience. 1 came
in from municipal policing and fed-
eral policing. The people here took
me under their wings and showed
me the ropes, the difference. There
is a difference between campus
police and municipal police. I have
learned a lot about the campus
and the academia and how to work
in the world of academics. It is
TEC: Do you have anything else
you'd like to add?
Younce: I am leaving with a lot
of regrets but looking forward to
the new challenge and new job. I
am looking forward to connecting
with the professional association
with people here at the university.
We are all part of the university
system and I look forward to being
a part of the system.
N.C. community college instructors rank last in pay
Community College instructor
Jason Rogers says teaching isn't
about the pay.
But he also has a simple answer
when asked if he'd like to make
more money: "You bet
North Carolina community col-
lege instructors are the lowest-paid
in the Southeast.
Rogers, who makes $31,347 a
year, said salaries are often a topic
of conversation.
"Everybody thinks they are
underpaid he said.
Compared with 15 other states,
North Carolina community college
instructors are at the bottom of
the list, with an average salary of
$33,027, according to a report from
the Southern Regional Education
10 years ago, North Carolina
ranked 11th out of 16 states in the
lxw salaries have been "a long-
standing problem for the system
said Eric McKeithan, president at
Cape Fear Community College.
After 20 years working for the
state community college system,
McKeithan admits the problem has
gotten worse.
McKeithan said catching the
national average would be difficult
because recent growth has exacer-
bated the problem.
In 1994, Cape Fear had 70 full-
time faculty members. Today, it has
179. As new instructors come on
board, the college's average salary
declines, he said.
That's because newer instructors
typically have fewer years' experi-
ence than those leaving the college,
which means their starting salary
is lower. But the lower starting
pay makes it hard to find qualified
"So we're starting out behind
McKeithan said.
A comparison of salaries high-
lights how tough it is to compete
in the labor market.
The average salary for a com-
puter support specialist is $39,320,
and the average for a computer
programmer is $54,070. Librarians
make an average $36,210, while
registered nurses make an average
salary of $41,650. The average
salary for North Carolina public
school teachers, $36,098, is also
higher than the average salary for
community college instructors of
While faculty salaries at North
Carolina community colleges are
the lowest in the Southeast, the
average salary at North Carolina's
four-year colleges and universities
ranks fourth in the region.
The good news for instructors
is that state officials are taking note
of the problem. State community
college administrators are calling
for a substantial raise next year,
and lawmakers admit the salaries
need to be increased.
During a recent forum at Cape
Fear, state Sen. Patrick Ballantine,
R-New Hanover, said improving
faculty salaries needs to be a priority
for the legislature.

citizens are the ones
who are losing out.
just because the suits
of Washington, D.C. are
almost entirely made up
of Republicans and Dem-
ocrats does not mean
that they are the only
ones with the answers to
America's problems.
The Republican candidate, Gov. George W. Bush and the Democratic
candidate, Vice President Al Gore squared off during the past two televised
political debates this month. Unfortunately for viewers of the debates, not all
of the party representatives are invited to participate.
Libertarian candidate Harry Browne, Green Party candidate Ralph Nader,
and Reform Party candidate Pat Buchanan are all left standing out in the cold.
Why were these candidates not included? Aren't their political views valid to
the 2000 presidential election?
One would think that after Ross Perot was included in the the 1992 election
debates, the question of the participation of an Independent candidate should
be answered. Because Perot made such an impact in his inclusion, the now-
threatened Democrats and Republicans wish to keep things as they have always
been. The election of Independent Jessi "The Body" Ventura as governor of
Minnesota should further prove the power of the Independents.
By including only two of the candidates in the debate, American citizens
are the ones who are losing out. ust because the suits of Washington, D.C. are
almost entirely made up of Republicans and Democrats does not mean that
they are the only ones with the answers to America's problems.
The Independents are most often brushed to the side in media coverage
leaving them scrambling for exposure. One of the Independent candidates
reportedly answered debate questions online while the first debate was in
progress. An equal opportunity to participate in the debates can bring the se
candidates' fresh ideas to light. )ust because their parties have not existed as
long as the two major parties does not mean they should be ignored. Why
should Americans keep'Voting for the Republicans and Democrats if, when
elected, they leave citizens feeling betrayed and embarrassed with the most
powerful representative of the free world?
We at TfC would like to be given the opportunity to hear all of the presidential
candidates in the debates in future elections. Everyone who has the opportunity
to run for office should be given the right to be heard.
MadUa Kmox
Candidates found little to disagree on in debate
nearly fell asleep watching the
second presidential debate this
week. It took a good 20-some min-
utes for Tweedledee and Tweedle-
dum to finally find an issue that
they distinctly disagreed with each
other on.
Even from that point on there
were mostly only subtle differences,
but no real deep controversies. For
instance, while Al Gore supports
mandatory waiting periods for gun
purchases, George W. Bush does
not. However, both are for better
enforcement of laws already on the
books and the elimination of gun
show loopholes. Both have stated
that they are willing to sign limited
gun restriction laws.
Bush and Gore have remarkable
similarities on numerous other
issues. Both favor putting more
money into the drug war, and under
the Clinton administration more
people have been put away for non-
violent drug crimes than during
Bush Srs administration. Neither
candidate has dealt head-on with
America's alarmingly high prison
During the debates, when the
moderator listed past American
military interventions in foreign
countries, Bush and Gore agreed
significantly more than they dis-
agreed. Two years ago, a town meet-
ing to discuss bombing of Iraq was
set here at Ohio State, where groups
of protesters demonstrated against
the action. If both presidential
candidates advocate a consistent
pattern of violent military action.
where is the voice of all the Ameri-
cans opposed to it?
Both candidates also support
the death penalty despite its failure
as a crime deterrent, opposition
from Amnesty International and
the United Nations and the risk
of innocent lives. More than 85
prisoners have been freed from
death row due to revealed accidents
and incompetence in our judicial
system. Gore warns against the
dangers of racial profiling but does
not seem to be bothered by the fact
that the vast majority of death row
inmates could not afford a lawyer
and are racial minorities.
In the matter of health insur-
ance, it is a no-win situation. We see
that the number of people without
it has increased during the Clinton
administration, and also that Texas,
combined with California, holds
18 percent of the nation's children
without coverage.
People will point out that Gore
and Bush divide, perhaps most
sharply, on the issues of Medical
Care, Social Security and welfare.
Certainly Gore is more aggressive
about putting additional funds into
such programs. However, we must
acknowledge that Clinton signed a
bill that cut welfare and that both
he and Gore have records for being
centrist Democrats.
Both candidates have also
engaged in corrupt campaigns,
taking advantage of loopholes that
violate the spirit of the laws. Both
the Clinton and now the Gore
campaigns used soft money, even
after Gore publicly condemned it.
And Bush has received bundled-
contributions from corporations.
The most insane catch-22 in
this year's election is the part of
third parties, particularly the front-
running Green Party and its candi-
date Ralph Nader. The media do
not pay attention to third parties,
and that leads to the candidates
doing poorly in the polls, which
leads to the media continuing to
not pay attention to them.
Another frustrating barrier is
that when voters see third-party
candidates doing poorly in the
polls it reinforces the idea that it
is a waste to vote for them, and so
those candidates cannot seem to
get past a low set threshold.
it is rather remarkable, given
these roadblocks, that at some
point in the campaign Nader had
8 percent in the polls. And that 8
percent does not count all those
liberals who would like to vote for
Nader but will not because they
fear Bush.
After carefully watching this
campaign for more than a year I
personally have grown tired of the
urge to vote Gore as the lesser of
two evils. If Gore loses because of
liberals who voted for Nader
instead, then the Democratic
Party will be forced to turn back
to real liberal values to get those
people back. So in that respect it is
not blind idealism to vote for Nader
if one really wants to. We don't
have to vote for the winning person
to make a positive difference.
Take action: Vote
Dear Editor,
Amidst debates, party platforms,
ideologies, commercials and open
letters, such as the "little" Al Gore
propaganda piece published by TEC
on Oct. 3, there is one thing we can
trust: the right to vote. However,
it is pathetic, statistically, that our
age group (18-25) will have one of
lowest voter turnouts-even though
we compromise one of the larger
segments of society.
It is also sad that MTV feels it
has to "Rock the Votepandering
down to us the brilliant advice of
N'SYNC and "Stone Cold" Steve
Austin. We should know by now, if
we stayed awake in our American
History class, that the presidential
elections are a chance to give our
beliefs action, to exercise a consti-
tutional process. And even though
we may cast our vote for an obscure
third party candidate, that is still
reason enough to get off your butt,
close your cell phone and vote.

Welfare of Palestine not United States priority
The fighting in Palestine has
continued throughout the week
with many more dying and even
more injured, almost alt on the
Palestinian side.
It seems as if there has been a
considerable amount to talk about
the Palestinians to pull back, and
some have placed the blame on
Arafat. Both presidential candidates
have talked about their support for
Israel and yet they want to act as an
honest broker. So as it stands, to my
utter shock, there are some in the
media and politics who think that
the Palestinians are causing the
aggressions and are killing innocent
Israeli citizens.
Well, let's go over the facts. First,
a visit from the Israeli government
official to a holly site in Palestine
caused some peaceful protesting
among the Palestinians; something
like what we do in the United
States (one example in the Million
Mom March for gun control). It
was peaceful and to the point until
Israeli soldiers started shooting
live ammo and unarmed civilians
and innocent children. Now if that
isn't enough to outrage somebody,
I don't know what is.
After some 80 plus Palestinians
were killed, there was no con-
demnation of this act of aggres-
sion by the Israelis except by the
United Nations; but without any
consequences to back that con-
demnation, it really doesn't mean
anything to anybody.
Imagine that an enemy is firing
up you with live ammo, is bomb-
ing you from above, not just your
military sites but also your civilian
sites. Would this not be enough
for us to declare war and to fight
with everything we have? Sure it
would, and that is the case with
the Palestinians.
Now it so happens that you
capture a couple of the soldiers
who are firing at you while you
are unarmed. What would you do
to them?
That is exactly what the Pales-
tinians did when they caught a few
Israeli soldiers. The fact is, about
100 or more Palestinians have been
killed thus fat in this new set of
tragic events. Nobody wants it to
happen but it happened and the
Palestinians are under fire from
ground and air, they are at war and
there is no other way to put it.
President Bill Clinton was quick
to condemn the killing of the Israeli
soldiers; I have yet to hear him
condemn the killings of the Pales-
tinians. Maybe he doesn't think
that a 100 Palestinian lives are
worth anything; I don't know what
other conclusion to draw. Given
this, how can the United States
claim to be an honest broker?
Napster: big labels steal from bands
Editor's Note: "Our View" is the
opinion of the TEC Editorial Board
and is written by individual Editorial
Board members.
Dear Editor,
Recently (TEC) wrote yet
another uninformed opinion about-
a subject that (it) has absolutely
no understanding about. All issues
have more than one side and in
today's complicated world, issues
often have several sides. The writer
seems to be a bit lazy in (his or her)
knowledge of the subject.
Concerning Napster and your
concern that the musicians may
"go out of business This is not a
musician issue. It is a record label
issue. It is the record labels strong
arm known as RIM that is reaching
out to file these lawsuits against
Napster. At issue is not the music or
the profits or concern for the musi-
cians. What they are concerned
about is that their own huge prof-
its may be diminished, but more
important to the record labels is
a concern for their diminished
You obviously did absolutely no
research except for a quick passage
from the bible so here's some info.
A new band signed to a major label
who enjoys moderate success, let
us say, they are a one-hit-wonder.
They sell 2 million copies of their
inane song and we get to here this
simple but catchy tune 10 times
a day on the local modern rock
The label sells the albums at
around $12 per unit to the record
stores. They cost the label about 85
cents per copy including packaging.
With a gross take in of about $24
million how much do you think
the band will see? A whoping 27
cents per copy sold. That's right, it
works out to around a half a million
dollars. Wow, the label takes in
around 24 million and the artist
receives $500,000 of that. Who's
stealing from whom here?
Napster is participant driven.
Millions of young people are saying
to the public and the record indus-
try that they don't want and don't
like the crappy music being force
fed to them by labels that have
little or no clue as to what good
music is. It's about control by the
big three labels.
About a year and a half ago sev-
eral small labels where purchased
and dissolved so as to eliminate the
opportunities that may give a band
the opportunity to receive the lions
share of the profits. If they-the
Large record Industry-don't repre-
sent it, then they don't want you
to have it.
Along comes the Internet and
about 10 million downloaders
express their wants and desires by
finding a way to get to the music
they want and by posting that
music and their choices for others
to find and listen to as MP3s at the
Napster site. It gives independent
bands a leg up in an industry that
clearly wants to keep them in their
place. If bands become known and
get that $12 a CD rather than the
record industry, would that be so
Yes, there are issues about Nap-
ster and loss of revenue and there
are no clear answers yet, but your
simpleton attack on the young
man that formed Napster reeks
of piousness and a glaring lack of
knowledge and information about
the issue you write about. At least
the young man who dropped out of
college used the time on his hands
to make a mark in this world and
he has stood up for that mark and
he has, dare I say, accomplished
more before he was 19 than most
of us will ever accomplish in our
You quoted from the Bible,
something about "thou shall not
steal What about, "Judge not lest
ye be judged
Since you've chosen to insult
the young man without him being
able to respond and defend him-
self, which is very small-minded,
especially the college dropout com-
ments, here's one on his behalf
back at ya.
Your piousness is only surpassed
by your ignorance and laziness in
researching the subject at hand.
If you are going to speak out as
(a newspaper) you owe it to your
readers to be fully informed and
then to get that information to
them. It's difficult for us to take
you seriously and to consider your
opinions valid unless they are
founded, which few if any of yours

Hey man, I
thought we were pals
A man, who had sailed down the
Marco River with his girlfriend and three
male friends and pulled in at the pop-
ular Snook Inn, in Naples, Fla was
somewhat taken back when a woman
there informed him that his girlfriend
had gone onto the ladies room and was
having sex with one of his friends.
He rushed in and heard the unmis-
takable sounds of passion in one of the
stalls. He pounded on the door, threat-
ening mayhem and bodily harm, but
they continued undeterred.
The situation was resolved soon
afterward back on the dock outside, in
an ugly scene featuring the expected
screaming match and fistfight. Alcohol
may have been involved.
Think you have
in-law problems?
Gary Farmer, who had met his
daughter's new husband at their wed-
ding only three days earlier, found that
he just didn't like the groom, Mark
Erlandson, one little bit.
Felt, in fact that the man just wasn't
good enough for his daughter. So,
while visiting the couple in their mobile
home, he came around in back of the
groom, pulled his head back by his hair
and cut his throat with a kitchen knife.
Erlandson survived. Farmer, 53, has
been charged with attempted murder,
and his attorney has requested a psy-
chological evaluation.

Lifuna Nyambe, angered at her
husband's incessant infidelities, finally
resorted to locking him in the bedroom
of their home in Zambia every night
to keep him from sneaking out to dally

tified in divorce court that she would
also put him under lock and key when
her female friends visited "so I wouldn't

A young street thug in Spain testified

F.arline White
Dr. Paul Tardif, a professor of piano and jazz at
ECU, received the Career Award for Excellence in
Research and Creative Activity on Oct. 12 in the A.J.
Fletcher Recital Hall. The University's prestigious
award, announced last spring, was presented by Dr.
Thomas Fgldbush, vice chancellor for research and
dean of the ECU Graduate School.
Tardif was the featured performer at the concert
and was joined by his colleagues Ara Gregorian
(violin), Nathan Williams (clarinet), Ray Codrington
(trumpet), Paul Ingbretsen (acoustic bass) and Dan
Davis (drums).
"This award is gratifying to me both personally
and as a faculty member of the East Carolina School
of Music Tardif said. "ECU provides an environment
of excellence and creative encouragement to music
faculty and students alike. I am very pleased
As recipient of the career award, Tardif has been
designated a distinguished professor of music.
"Paul Tardif is a highly gifted and talented
musician said Brad Foley, dean of the School of
Music. "He is an outstanding performing artist on
the piano, a scholar in piano and jazz performance,
and a superior music instructor. He has represented
the university and school as one of out finest faculty
member in all areas teaching, creative activity and
service-for some 30 years. Tie is most deserving of
this award
"I have never seen him perform before said
Calvin Johnson, communications major. "But he
plays with a lot of passion. His students all seem to
take a great liking to him; they were yelling for him
after his performances
Along with teaching, Tardif has given over 200
solo and ensemble performances in classical music
in the United States and around the world. He also
has numerous performances in the jazz milieu to bis
credit. Tie holds a doctor of music art degree from
the Peabody Conservatory; the artist's diploma from
the Mozarteum, Salzburg, Austria; and bachelor's
and master's of music degrees from the Eastman
School of Music.
Tardif has been the recipient of a special North

PiCk Of the Week: Meet the Parents
Maura Buck
Meet the Parents is prov-
ing to be a huge hit with
moviegoers. The cpmedy
about a beau, Greg Focker
(Ben Stiller), who meets
the ultimate father-in-law
from hell, played by Robert
DeNiro, brought home a
record $29.1 million for an
October opener. The film
broke the record previ-
ously held by the Octo-
berl998 hit Ante.
Parents has a pretty
impressive cast of charac-
ters, boasting Ben Stiller,
Robert DeNiro, Teri Polo
and Blythe Danner. Despite
the fact that these actors have star power,
director Jay Roach brings his unique
humor to the big screen for the first time
since his Austin Powers success.
"I loved his Austin Powers films and
I wasn't let down by his efforts in this
film, either said sophomore Kevin
Mothers-in-law get off easy in Meet
the Parents. Instead, a would-be father-
in-law serves as the running punch line
for the movie. The movie sets up jokes
so well that they leave patrons laughing
and they leave the theater with smiles
plastered on their faces. Don't think
an overflowing septic tank is funny
enough? Just wait until wedding guests
get spattered with the muck-and don't
forget those close-ups.
"Some parts were minutes of non-
stop laughter said Eric Davis, fresh-
The harder Focker-a male nurse and
Jewish kid-tries, the more determined
Dad becomes to unmask the young man
for the liar and drug user he mistakenly
assumes him to be. He even goes so far
as to administer a polygraph test to the
flustered visitor.
"I think that Stiller and DeNiro had
a lot of chemistry, they worked well
together Davis said.
One thing that truly works for the
film is the way it sets up scenes. For
example, in one early scene Focker tosses
a cigarette pack-Dad hates smokers-onto
the roof and there's a close-up of it
lying on the shingles. Why? So that
halfway through the film moviegoers can
experience a hilarious scene in which
Focker climbs out onto the roof, smokes
a cigarette and accidentally starts a major
fire on the eve of his future sister-in-law's
Though Stiller is still stuck in his
familiar chump mode from There's Some-
thing About Mary he is arguably one of
the funniest young comedians today.
Danner, as DeNiro's wife, and Polo-from
TV's "Felicityboth have too little to do,
though Danner definitely adds decorative
comic relief where she can.
Their characters are crucial to the
story line despite the fact that they never
steal scenes. Regardless, the stars, plot
and the very premise of the film are all
topics that nearly every couple can relate
to. It's a great film to see when craving
a comedy.

Graduating in 4 years:
Is it history at colleges?
(TMS)-Parents, take note: For
most college students, a four-year
degree is a thing of the past.
At most of Virginia's 15 public
four-year colleges, less than 50 per-
cent of freshmen graduate within
six years, according to state data.
That's still an Improvement from
the recent past; in the past decade,
the graduation rates have risen at
two-thirds of the schools.
The latest data from the State
Council of Higher Education, which
are not final, track the number
of freshmen starting college in
1993 who graduated by 1999. They
About 20 percent graduated
at Norfolk State University, the
Virginia school with the lowest
That reflects Norfolk State's
"almost open-admissions" policy
in the early 1990s, President Marie
V. McDemmond said. She predicted
that the rate will increase with
the university's recent shift to a
C-average admissions requirement
and more intensive advising of
students without majors.
Slightly less than 40 percent
graduated from Old Dominion
University, down from 41.4 percent
of 1983 freshmen.
ODU President James V. Koch
said the change is small and termed
the rates "basically irrelevant" for
ODU. Thirty percent of freshmen,
including military dependents, "tell
us they do not intend to graduate
from ODU Koch thinks those
students should be excluded from
the rates.
Twenty-eight percent graduated
at Christopher Newport University,
down from 30.5 percent of 1983
The school has the state's sec-
ond-lowest rate, but its provost,
Robert D. Doane, said: "I don't
think that reflects what students
at CNU are like today. What we're
doing now is accepting much more
qualified students
The colleges with the best gradu-
ation rates remain the University of
Virginia and the College of William
and Mary, at 91 and 88 percent,
respectively. That's no surprise to
Phyllis Palmiero, executive director
of the state council, who echoed
academia's caveat: Don't compare
"Students who go to William
and Mary and the University of
Virginia are academically prepared
Palmiero said. At some other col-
leges, "students may be less pre-
pared or they may have more chal-
lenges paying for school. So they're
going to be dropping in and out,
and taking fewer courses
Academics say Virginia's figures
are in line with nationwide results.
ACT Inc an education organi-
zation in Iowa, surveys 450 public
four-year colleges. It says the five-
year graduation rate has fallen from
48.5 percent in 1987 to 42.2 percent
in 1999. It does not compute six-
year rates, as Virginia does. Neither
compiles four-year rates.

ECU - 42 ARMY - 21
Fourth quarter surge
helps Pirates past Cadets
Harris, Henry
spur offensive outburst
Stephen Schramm
ECU Head Coach Steve Logan has preached to
his team all season about the value of a strong fourth
quarter. After three quarters Saturday, KCU battled
Army to a 21-21 tie.
In the final period, the Pirates exploded for 21
points and blew past winless Army, 42-21.
"All year we haven't lost a fourth quarter said
running back Jamie Wilson. "We came up short in
the (Virginia) Tech game and the Memphis game,
but we still won the fourth quarter of those games.
That's what we do. That's Pirate football, that's what
we're known for. We try to stick to it
ECU jumped out to an early lead, getting the fast
start they had hoped for, on a one-yard touchdown
nin by Quarterback David Garrard. On the Pirates'
second possession, a Garrard pass bounced off of
the chest of tight end Rashon Burns and into the
hands of Army's Ben Woodroff.
Army got on the board in the second quarter
with a Michael Wallace 2 yard touchdown on a drive
that saw the Cadets convert a fourth and one.
Wallace scored again
on a 2 yard run that
gave Army a 14-7 lead
with 2:46 left in the
"We talked all week
about getting off to a
fast start and we kind of
did that Logan said.
"That turnover on the
start of the second drive

and it took a while to get it back under control. 1

that they did
The Pirates responded by evening the score at 14
a piece on a drive that saw the Pirates move 69 yards
after a 30-yard kickoff return by Terrance Copper. The
Pirates scored when Garrard connected with Marcellus
Harris on a 46-yard bomb.
After a Garrard pass was picked off by Army's Brent
Dial and run back to the ECU 10-yard line, the Cadets
scored on a 7-yard pass from Curtis Zervic to Bryan
The Pirates anwered again when Garrard found
Henry out of the backfield for a scoring play that
covered 15 yards, tied the score and set up the Pirates'
fourth quarter surge.
"We did come out and did get the opening drive.
But we did taper a little bitGarrard said. "But we
still kept our heads in it and puched it in in the
fourth quarter like we normally do
Marcellus Harris is one of the big time players
in this program. I wouldn't trade him foranybody.
He just does everything. Runs reverses, runs back
kickoffs. Whatever we need him to do, he does it.
He played a wonderful game tonight.
"Sometimes I wonder if I've over coached it
Logan said. "Hanging around and waiting for the
fourth quarter is going to cause me a heart attack.
I don't know. But I do know that games are won in
the fourth quarter. It's just a fact.

have on my tombstone he was held in the fourth

against state rival UNC-Wilmington.
The Pirates followed that performance with a gutsy
.1-0 loss to the nationally ranked James Madison
ECU used a mix of senior leadership and timely
freshmen contributions to wear down a talented
UNC-W team. I he seniors, Pat Jennings, Greg Hoffman
and Dino Stambolitis, kept the team together until
freshman D.J. Jarmon scored not only the first goal
of his career, but also the game winner in the second
overtime period against Wilmington.
ECU started slowly falling behind 2-0 on goals by
Justin Schatz and Tommy Miller of UNC-W.
I thought UNC-W came out from the start and
looked sharp ECU Head Coach Devin O'Neill said.
"Our guys showed guts. They never gave up and that is
a credit to their character. I think the potential is there
for us to have a really good team. It is just a matter of
putting together a full 90 minutes
The Pirates cut the lead in half with the first of

the corner with Michael Logan and Charlie Joyner

defender and ending with a rocket off the foot of
Jennings. O'Neill sensing his Pirates were starting

that invigorated his team.
The first half ended with the Seahawks clinging to
a 2-1 lead. The Pirates opened the second half with
constant pressure, which resulted in flurry of shots on
UNC-W goalie Bill Mills. ECU, fueled by the infusion of
energy from reserves Stambolitis and Jarmon, pressed
the Seahawks into several mistakes.

Heat's mourning to miss NBA season
MIAMI (AP)-A common but serious kidney ailment
will keep Alonzo Mourning sidelined for the entire
season, depriving the Miami Heat of their biggest star
and the key to their quest for an NBA title.
Doctors said Monday that the illness, first spotted
just after Mourning helped the United States team to
the basketball gold medal earlier this month, was focal
glomerulosclerosis, which leads to kidney failure in
about half the cases.
They said there were no immediate plans for a
kidney transplant or dialysis.
"I feel great right now. We've pretty much got a
hold on it, the whole situation right now Mourning
said at a news conference where he discussed his
ailment publicly for the first time. "The main objective
is to get me healthy so I can live my life normally,
so I can see my babies grow up, and so 1 can enjoy
my family.
"And at the same time, possibly do the things that
I know and love-and that's the game of basketball. But
the key right now is to get me healthy he said.
Pat Riley, the head coach who spent the offseason
signing free agents and redesigning the team to
complement Mourning's talents, said his star center
was following the proper course.
"Alonzo Mourning will not be playing professional
basketball this season, and we're totally convinced that
the only thing that should be on his mind is getting
healthy Riley said.
Mourning, 30, made his first public appearance
since Oct. 3, when he attended the team's media day.
Training camp began without him the following day,
and he has not practiced because of his condition,
which was discovered during a routine physical two
weeks ago.
Dr. Gerald Appel, of Columbia Presbyterian Hospital
in New York, said the disease causes the kidneys to
leak protein into a person's urine. Without treatment,
filters in the kidneys eventually become scarred, cease
to function and a transplant is needed.
He said the disease is widespread among blacks.
"I am very confident this is not related to HIV
disease, it's not related to drug abuse, it's not related to
steroids or anything Alonzo did Appel said, adding
that the origin of Mourning's condition is "idiopathic
or unknown.
Mourning will be placed on a six-month treatment
trial. He will take medications to hopefully reduce
the swelling in his lower body, stop the kidneys
from leaking proteins and control his blood pressure
and cholesterol levels. He also will follow a strict
low-sodium diet.
But even with treatment, about 50 percent of
cases develop chronic renal failure, Appel said. The
Duke female
kicker awarded
$2 million
DURHAM (IMSCampus)-Duke University's
decision to cut a female place-kicker from its
football team in 1996 was based strictly on the
fact that she was female, and the university
must now pay Heather Sue Mercer more than $2
million in damages, a jury ruled Thursday.
Mercer, 24, claimed that then-Head Coach
Ered Goldsmith cut her from the team because
she was a woman. She testified that she was
capable are hitting field goals from 48 yards
out, and that she kicked the game-winning field
goal in an intrasquad game before Goldsmith
dismissed her.
The University, however, testified that
Mercer was cut because she simply didn't have
the skills other kickers had, and that Goldsmith,
who was fired in 1998, cut Mercer extra slack
because "she was trying to do something
special he said during his testimony.
The settlement consists of $2 million in puni-
tive damages, stemmed from the university's
knowledge of, and inaction regarding, Mercer's

Additionally, Duke

less, Mercer was grat-
ified with the jury's

John Burness, Duke's senior vice president
for public affairs and government relations,
announced in a blunt statement that the
university will appeal the decision.
"We're obviously disappointed with the
jury's finding and are confident the judgment
will be rectified on appeal Burness said.
Burton Craige, Mercer's attorney, asked
the jury to reward his client with an amount
that would "get Duke's attention But Mercer,
now an employee at Charles Schwab & Co. in
New York, said that the money is merely an
"Any monetary award is completely icing
on the cake. I wanted to be told what they did
was wrong, and it was, " Mercer said.
The punitive damages will go toward a
scholarship fund for future female place-kickers.
Interestingly, the decision comes smack in the
middle of a year-long, university-wide program
recognizing women's achievements in Duke
sports. The program culminates in April with
a weekend of activities, including a gala, golf
outing, silent auction and several parties. Duke
introduced women's sports on the club level
in the 1940s.
Varsity athletics for women were introduced
during the 1971-72 school year, roughly the
same time the U.S. Department of Education
enforced Title IX, which prohibits any school

excluding would-be athletes on the basis of

"I am approaching this fight like

as much as possible
"I'm not worried about Golota's

at Detroit's Brewster Gym, where
the great Joe Louis once trained.

The two heavyweights who
have sullied their reputations with
dirty tactics in several bouts are
scheduled to fight Friday night in
the Palace at Auburn Hills. It will
be shown on pay-per-view.
"Both fighters are professionals
and know how to fight said Al
Certo, Golota's trainer. "I think
the media wants a dirty fight and
has been trying to talk the fighters
into it. 1 think it is going to be
good fight. If Tyson does fight dirty,
Golota might pick him up and
body slam him or throw him out
of the ring
Tyson, who appeared relaxed,
said he doesn't believe he is the
despised figure he is sometimes
portrayed as being.
"If every white person really
hated me, I would not make a
dollar the former undisputed
heavyweight champion said.
"Anyone with any kind of intel-
ligence would know that. Anyone
that is ignorant would want to
believe that. I am an anxious guy
and I am bitter. Listen, I am just
insecure sometimes. Sometimes 1
overreact when I should not.
"I fought in London (actually
Manchester, England) and Scotland
and all the white people there loved

(the United States) and I hear all

Golota has failed to win big
fights. He twice was disqualified in
bouts he was winning against Rid-
dick Bowe. He was stopped in one
round by heavyweight champion
lnnox Lewis and he was stopped
by Michael Grant in the ninth
round of a fight he was the verge
of winning.

ably thought 1 would be a good
opponent for him Golota said.

University officials said they had no details on
where the facility would be built, what it would
look like or how much it would cost.
But there was news Monday of a second large
donation to help pay for the new building.
James and Virginia Wheeler of West Bend pledged
a $2 million matching gift. That is in addition
to $7 million already pledged in August by an
anonymous donor.
The university now must raise $9 million from

sidered to be the favorite to win
the Eastern Conference.
Mourning missed the Hear1 first
exhibition game last week against
the New Jersey Nets.
He finished third in voting for
the NBA's Most Valuable Player
last season, when he averaged 21.1
points, 9.5 rebounds and 3.7 blocks
per game. He has missed only seven
games the past two seasons.
With a healthy roster, the Heat
were widely regarded as the favor-
ites in the Eastern Conference.
Without Mourning, the outlook
would change drastically.
"When you come to a folk in
the road, you take it Riley said.
"And we have come to that. Now
we must move forward
