Why not expand your
mind this year and try
something new? Co to
Midnight Madness and
make some new friends.
Co to the Haunted Forest
and see what some stu-
dents have worked so
hard to put together.
Who doesn't love being a part of the downtown festivities on Halloween?
However, there is more to life than just downtown. We at TEC would like
students to realize that ECU is very diverse and the alternatives to Halloween
downtown are fabulous. We should consider ourselves lucky to have a
multitude of activities to participate in.
Having done the Halloween thing in Greenville several times, it gets
old. We are glad to have such things as the Haunted Forest and Midnight
Madness to participate in. University Unions puts on an excellent party and
there's no need to worry about a potential macing you might receive as
part of the riotous like crowds that bombard 5th Street. You certainly won't
have to worry about someone stepping on the costume you spent three
days preparing. And you won't go home with bruises from people pushing,
bumping and stepping on you.
So why does everyone continue to head downtown? Why not expand
your mind this year and try something new? Co to Midnight Madness and
make some new friends. Go to the Haunted Forest and see what some
students have worked so hard to put together.
For once we would like to not hear about rumor about snipers looming
on the roofs of buildings. We could also do without the strip show
some partygoers have bestowed upon downtown from above BW-3s
in years past.
While we are glad ECU is known for something, we wish it would be
because of our wonderful school and not for our Halloween partying
IN MY OPINION
Young voters: where are they?
It's funny how many Greenville
citizens and businesses are always
complaining about how students
keep too much noise and cause
too much chaos. How we throw
wild parties and keep them awake
at night. How when we get too
tipsy, we come into their stores
drunk and cause problems. How
we illegally park on their streets
because ECU doesn't offer enough
parking, but we still have to go
These people do not realize we,
the students, are keeping Greenville
alive. We come to your restaurants.
We bring you business whether we
are sober or drunk. We go to your
restaurants and eat and eat and
eat. We may also eat and drink.
Food and, not to mention, drinks
cost a lot of money. We are giving
you money in exchange for your
service, so don't complain. If not
for us, your business would not be
as good as it is.
We also go to your stores and
buy clothes. We pay crazy prices
that you have jacked up because
you know we will buy what it is
you're selling because we want it
We are bringing life to this
city. Before the college came to
IN MY OPINION
Students help make the city
Greenville, it was quiet and really
didn't have as much vitality as it
does now. We've helped to spice it
up a little and helped it become a
bigger, more prosperous city.
I didn't realize what affect the
students had on the city until 1
came back early from Fall Break.
The town was quiet too quiet.
There were no cars on the street
except for mine and maybe eight
more. How many times have you
seen Greenville Boulevard with
nine or so cars on it? Almost
Everyone was driving sanely
which just proved not many college
students were here (because most
of us can't drive worth a darn). The
parking lots around the residence
halls had few cars in them. There
were no lines at restaurants to get
in. Wal-Mart was not over-crowded.
I didn't even have to wait that long
in line to get out.
Even though many students
may cause trouble for Greenville
residents, they need to realize
our importance. Not only do we
bring life to this town, but we
have also put it on the map. When
people ask, "Where are you going
to school?" and I reply "ECU they
know automatically where that
it is. Whereas before the college
came here, people would need a
clarification between Greenville,
N.C. and Greenville, S.C.
I have to admit, a lot of the
problems that arise, we cause. If we
in our drunken stupor cause you
problems, I apologize. For those of
us who don't drink but still cause
problems, I still offer an apology.
We mean no harm.
We're just trying to have fun
and enjoy our college years and
our life (just as you probably did
at our age or are now). But just try
to realize that we are not children,
so do not treat us as such. Yes, our
parents may be paying for us to go
here, but we are here to learn and
develop our future. Realize we are
as important to "making" this city
as you are.
So next time when you, the
student, hears someone complain
about ECU or other college students
being in their vicinity, remind them
of our importance. Not only are
we helping to support the same
city as they, and we, along with
them, have the same rights. So bear
with us. We are to be appreciated as
people and citizens too.
There has been a lot of talk lately
about young people not voting,
especially those at the college level.
While it's true that a good majority
of the younger population doesn't
show up at the voting polls, there
are a few that make it out there.
However, it's to our loss that we
choose not to vote or choose not
to care or take part in our political
In many nations that have

many kings, dictators, communists
and others of the like who have
oppressed their people. Today,
we are fortunate enough to live
in a society unlike these and we
choose who is going to represent
our interests and us.
Maybe we don't know what we
have or how valuable it is to have
this right, maybe we would never
know unless it was taken away
from us. Can you imagine what it
would be like if you were to wake
up tomorrow and your leaders, who
controlled all aspects of your life,
were chosen by someone else? You
don't know what you have until
you don't have it anymore.
A large portion of our society
is made up of young people, but
the only way to have our interests
heard is to have a voice in the
government. If we don't vote, then
we don't have any power. And if
we don't have any power, then no
one cares about how we think or
what we want.
If you have been keeping up
with the debates and the campaign-
ing by the two major parties, then
you know that issues that concern
young voters are never brought up,
never discussed and rarely even
mentioned. But then again, why
If we aren't going to vote, and
the only thing any candidate cares
about are the votes, then why
should they waste their time and
money on something that couldn't
get them elected? The fact is that
we need to change this before it
becomes a trend. And if it has
already become a trend, then let's
surprise them this election year.
Now all or even most of the
blame doesn't lie on the younger
population. It has a lot to do with
how the candidates are discussing
the issues. Every time you see them,
they ate talking about Social Secu-
rity and Medicare. They are debat-
ing on tax curs and how to spend
the surplus. They are talking about
increasing military spending and
our role in other countries.
While some of these issues
might interest us and we may even
have a strong opinion on them, it
isn't enough to get us up and go to
the voting booth. Now Medicare
and Social Security are very impor-
tant subjects and of the utmost
concern to the seniors, which are
entitled to their safety, but they
shouldn't be the 6nly topics dis-
cussed. It's almost as if they don't
know that we exist. Maybe we
ought to jump up and say: Hello,
we're here too, do you have any-
thing for us or should we just stay
out of this? And unfortunately,
most of us are staying out of it.
We don't know it, but we have
a lot of power which we are not
using. By voting, we can show
them that we have a voice, that
our interests do matter. We want to
hear more about the digital divide,
our privacy online, spending on
our colleges and universities, more
financial help for college, and other
things of that nature.
If we start voting, they will start
paying attention. If a good majority
of the younger voters turn out this
time, then you will notice that the
politicians in the next election will
actually know what concerns we
have and you will see them talking
about these concerns during the
debates, rather than to ignore us
like they have this election year.
We can change things and we
can make a difference-let's get out
there and have our voice heard.
X-et's vote this election year.

ms IN MY OPINION
Assaulting Al and Smirking George
The Technician (North Carolina
State U.)-With Thursday night's
Take Back the Night March in sup-
port of survivors of sexual assault
and rape, it is possible that people
will really discuss what we all know
goes on. 1 could list statistics and
percentages that reveal just how
deeply this plague cuts, but that's
not interesting. Instead, I'd like
to be proactive and address what
can be done to end this miserable
It's really simple: Women do
not need to stop getting raped; men
need to stop raping.
When one frames the discussion
in that light, it becomes a whole lot
easier to see the mental acrobatics
that take place in order to blame
a victim. The age-old discussion
of solutions that we have all been
insulted with throughout the years
is not only inappropriate but also
an affront to common decency.
What was she doing with such
a revealing dress on? She shouldn't
have drunk so much. If she was in
his room, what did she think was
going to happen? If we took our
clothes off, doesn't that mean that
she wanted to have sex?
All of this is akin to accusing
the victim of child molestation of
naivete. It's a pure violation of our
judicial system's principles outlaw-
ing double jeopardy. A woman
Is violated, then dully convicted
for being an incautious slut. Does
this make any sense? The situation
becomes even more confounding
when the solution becomes more
self-defense training for young
women, more rape crisis hotlines
and more access to years of psycho-
therapy. Eventually, we should see
that a Band-Aid fails to serve its
purpose when that knife just keeps
on slicing new skin.
Yet, these seem to be the only
solutions that are ever proposed.
Meanwhile, we have raised at least
one (and probably more) genera-
tion of women who are told that to
be afraid is to be safe. I'll repeat: to
be afraid is to be safe. And we still
don't talk honestly about it.
We never discuss how horren-
dous it is that, "No means maybe
or, "No means yes have become
staples of our cultural dialogue. We
don't teach young men that taking
advantage of physical size or mental
intimidation is inappropriate.
And we don't teach young
women that they don't have to be
submissive-especially not between
the sheets. In fact, dominant culture
betrays these lessons and promotes
the polar opposite. Women are
taught to watch their drinks, not to
be alone at night and to travel in
groups. Men are taught that they
should have sex and that rapists
are just bad men who hang out in
shadows, not normal guys.
Not all men are rapists-not even
a large percentage of them-but all
men have the potential to rape
when communication breaks down
in sexual encounters and women
are seen as objects for our sexual
pleasure. Yet, to discuss and teach
young people in school how to
clearly communicate in sexual situ-
ations is as taboo as real conversa-
tions regarding how we feel about
Instead, we teach "character
curriculums" and abstinence at
all costs, ignoring the fact that
whatever is said, young people will
have sex. This is an irresponsible
shortcoming that perpetuates our
inability to communicate about
male sexual dominance.
I believe this plague will end
when we learn to communicate
better with one another. Commu-
nication: that means that women
feel that they have the right to
slow down or stop and men truly
understand that those needs should
be taken seriously at all costs.
Sexual partners need to under-
stand that to be crystal clear and be
understood is to be safe, not being
afraid. It's time to start holding one
another responsible for our actions
and have some real conversations
regarding sexual assault and rape.
Once we stop the knife from cut-
ting, we can throw out the box of

�How big is it?
Through three debates, George
W. Bush referred to his "big state"
more than 50 times. On everything
from how he'll clean up our land to
how he administers the death of his
citizens, young George consistently
talked about how "ours is a big
state" and how he'll use those
experiences to mold his experience
as president. Doesn't it strike you as
odd that a man so bent on his anti-
government persona is running so
heavily on his government record?
And at the same time his govern-
ment record spans only six years,
two of which have been consumed
�A new Al
In Debate 3, we saw the return
of Attack Al, and for a moment
there, I thought we might see a
new Al: Assaulting Al. As George
junior spoke, but didn't answer
the question at hand on a patient's
bill of rights, Gore jumped up and
approached Bush with a menacing
For the first time in more than
an hour of debate time, I got
excited. I really thought Gore was
going to hit him. Or at least get
in his face, bump chests with him
and yell, "You want a piece of my
patient's bill? Huh? Huh?"
Now that would have been a
Bush, citing the rules of the
debate, failed to answer the first
question directly germane to this
campus: Does he support affirma-
tive actin under the rules set forth
by the Supreme Court. After a long-
winded tap dance around the issue,
during which he proclaimed love
for "affirmative access" (whatever
that means), Gore pushed him
to say whether he supports the
policy as used today, including, by
the way, in University admissions
To moderator Jim I-ehrer's clari-
fication question, Bush reaffirmed
his support for "access saying, "If
affirmative action means quotas,
I'm against it
Wow, bold stance, Gov. Coming
out against an illegal policy and
then hiding behind rules to avoid
saying that you really do oppose
affirmative action as the Court
defines it. That performance fol-
lowed an impressive dance around
his opposition to gay rights in

to Gore challenge that his tax
plan spends more on the wealthi-

�What are you for?
Apparently Al Gore supports
working families. Just in case you
missed that. Gore is for working
families. Gore support for working
families. He wants to work for you.
If you're part of a working family,
he's your guy.
In a well-planned and executed
response, George Bush tried to
quiet critics of his Debate 2 com-
ments on the death penalty. In that
debate, Bush smirked and appeared
to enjoy saying that, "we can't
enhance the penalty any more
than putting those three thugs to
deaths" during an exchange about
hate crimes legislation.
The joy with which he moved
through that entirely unscripted
answer showed more about the
Texas governor than anything I've
seen before or since. His well-
written, but entirely pre-canned
answer in the final debate doesn't

ITHACA, N.Y. (AP)-Even if Hill-
ary Rodham Clinton loses in her
historic campaign to become a U.S.
senator, feminists and their causes
may still win, according to a panel
of Cornell University scholars.
"She wouldn't have to worry
about compromise said Theodore
J. I.owi, a professor of American
institutions. He suggested a loss
Nov. 7 would allow the first lady to
speak her mind without the typical
constraints of elected office.
A loss "may actually advance
the interests of feminists. She still
would have tremendous access
to the media and she could fight
wholeheartedly for her causes.
In the Senate, she would have to
moderate her views said I.owi.
Speaking to a crowd of 200
students, Lowi and five other Cor-
nell academicians spent two hours
Monday evening examining from
a feminist perspective the histori-
cal significance and meaning of
Clinton's unprecedented Senate
run. The scholars represented a
range of disciplines: law, history,
labor and industrial relations, gov-
ernment and ethics.
Clinton is running against Rep.
Rick Lazio, a Long Island Republi-
can, in one of the nation's most
high profile races.
While Lowi thought women's
issues might be advanced more
with a Clinton loss, other panelists
Mary Katzenstein, a professor of
government, said one area where
feminists' interests could be harmed
by a Clinton loss would be on
the Supreme Court, where several
justices are expected to retire in the
next few years. The Senate must
approve Supreme Court nominees.
"Hillary Clinton has said abor-
tion would be a litmus test for
her in the selection of a Supreme
Court justice. Lazio has said, for
him, abortion would not be the
litmus test. So, in this area, a loss
could have a profound impact
law professor Kathryn Abrams
said Clinton once represented great
promise to feminists, who lauded
her successful career as a lawyer,
her tireless children's' advocacy
work and her education reform
"Eight years later, I feel con-
spicuously disappointed said
Abrams. She said Clinton had failed
to follow the progressive agenda
she once advanced.
Abrams said feminists were
gravely disappointed with Clinton's
support of the 1996 welfare reform
act signed into law by her husband,

Prepare to be scared

comes to life in Greenville
It's that time of year again, when witches, goblins,
vampires and sorcerers prevail. What better way
to celebrate Halloween than by checking out the
department of recreation and leisure studies' (RCLS)
annual haunted forest?
This year marks the fourth year the department
will be putting on the event in support of outreach
programs within the recreation and leisure services
department for the Greenville and ECU community.
This year's theme is "Prepare to be Scared
"We have put a great deal of work into the forest
this year said Dr. Rachelle Toupence, professor of
RCLS. "It should be a good haunting experience as
well as a lot of fun
"The Haunted Forest was the brain child of
Dr. Jon McChesney who is no longer a professor
at ECU said senior Tory Williams, promotions
committee chair for RCLS. "Although he is elsewhere
this year, he will always be known as the founder of
the Haunted Forest
Two programs the proceeds will benefit in the
RCLS are the RAYS (Recreation Activities Yield
Success) Program in addition to the Patillo Project.
The latter will help to provide recreation activities
to an elementary school in larboro that was victim
to last year's flood and is still experiencing the
devastation of putting things back together.
"Last year's turn-out was really great said junior
April Husenita. "I hope that students, faculty and
members of the community come out to support
this event as much this year
More than 50 students have helped to put
together the forest this year as part of two RCLS
courses. Though the student? are graded on their
efforts, Toupence feels that they have been instru-
mental in bringing making the project work.
Just how scary is the forest? According to junior
and RCLS major Wes Bostic, the spook factor can be
adjusted to the patron's needs.
"If you go in there wanting a 10 experience,
we'll give you a great scare Bostic said. "If you
bring small children, we will just make it a fun
"Our purpose is to give Pitt County and the
surrounding areas a fun and safe community event,
while allowing RCLS students to gain experience in
leisure programming'Williams said.
RCLS will bring the haunted forest to life in
addition to offering face painting, fortune telling
and picture opportunities all at a reasonable rate.
The admission for adults is $3 and $2 for children
12 and under.
The Haunted Forest will run Oct. 26-27 from
6:30 p.m10:30 p.m. at the forest behind Harrington
Field, commonly refered to as the Frisby-Golf Field.
This writer can be contacted at email@example.com.

Are you ready to choose a life plan or deter-
mined to make being a student your permanent
occupation? The department of English will offer
a group session for students interested in the
opportunities a degree in English can present.
Dr. Rick Taylor, an English professor, will
head an interest meeting for a program known as
Summer in London scheduled for 3 p.m. Tuesday,
Oct. 31 in Room 1024 of the General Classroom
Building. The program offers students interested
in English the chance to study abroad for a
three to four-week learning experience with the
prospect of earning up to six semester hours
What skills should an English major possess?

Benefactor gives colleges mascots for fun
businessman lrwin Belk has donated
millions to Carolinas colleges, but
his gifts aren't limited to stadiums,
athletic facilities and scholarships.
He's also into mascots-large
Thanks to Belk, Wingate Uni-
versity boasts the world's largest
sculpture of a bulldog. Western
Carolina University claims the larg-
est catamount, a kind of bobcat,
and now Johnson C. Smith is home
to the world's largest bull.
"I reckon it's to get the bragging
rights Belk said, chuckling, when
asked what inspired him to com-
mission the monster mascots.
The sculptures usually accom-
pany tracks and athletic complexes
Belk donates. And there are more
In the next year, Belk has
pledged to build the world's larg-
est ram sculpture at University of
North Carolian-Chapel Hill, the
world's largest wildcat at Davidson
and the world's largest paladin
(a knight on a horse) at Furman
"You can build a building out
of stones or brick, but you ought
to add something to it to show it
off said Belk, 78. "I wanted to
give these schools something to be
JCSU officials used a crane to
hoist their new bull onto a rose
quartz pedestal overlooking the
new stadium. The bull, cast in
bronze, cost Belk about $250,000.
It weighs five tons and stands 20

Well, you can spot it from the
John Belk Freeway.
The drivers who towed it from

power lines out of the way.
It was so large that sculptor
Kent Ullberg had to look backwards
through binoculars in order to see
the whole thing. And he cut a hole
in the floor of his studio to get even
"Once this thing is safely sitting
in the pedestal, I'm going to breath
a tremendous sigh of relief Ullberg
It's tough to know if the mascots
are really the world's largest, but
university officials say they take
Belk's word for it.
For each, Belk said, he does
research to make sure it's the big-
gest. For instance, the largest bull
sculpture before Thursday sat in
front of the Merrill Lynch building
in New York City, Belk said.
"That one's two times life size,
so we made this one two and a half
times life size Belk said.
Getting the right artist for each
creation is another challenge.
For the JCSU bull, Belk sought
out Ullberg, who Belk heard was
the world's best wildlife sculptor.
Ullberg originally set out to create
a "golden bull since that is JCSU's
team name, but gold "would not
last outdoors Ullberg said.
Ullberg is also working on a
giant ram for UNC-CH, expected to
be finished in about four months.

program. "I've just seen a model of

ECU tops Cardinals,
gears up for Blazers
Coming into this season, It was obvious that
ECU's standing in the C-USA title race would ride
on how the Pirates fared in a six-week span that cut
across the heart of their schedule.
Beginning in early October, the Pirates would
face five straight conference foes beginning with
Memphis on Oct. 7, and ending with Houston on
With the Piiate's 28-25 win at Louisville a week
ago, the Pirates kept themselves in the thick of the
OUSA title chase and gave them their second win
in the five game stretch.
Saturday, the Pirates will take on UAB, the squad
that derailed their title hopes last season. Then
after one week off, the team has the final leg of
their six-week C-USA tour when they square off
"Well, it's just one game at a time said Head
Coach Steve l.ogan. "Now next week is big and then
the next week is big. You're just living on the edge
now. It's going to be very, very tense, but it is going
to be exciting and we'll see if we can respond
In their win over the Cardinals, the Pirates got
the fast start they were looking for. At halftime, the
Pirates led 21-10. After the Cardinals outscored ECU
15-7 in the second half, the Pirate defense stiffened,
sealing the victory.
"We had to get turnovers off of their offense
because you can't really stop them Logan said.
"They spread you out and do a great job offensively.
We got turnovers which we talked about all week
long. We had a chance to put the game away. We
were playing beautifully on offense, but missed
two touchdown passes. As it ended, we had to win
it on defense
Louisville's offense tested the Pirate defense with
its speed and passing effectiveness. As a team, the
Cardinals threw for 252 yards by the end of the
game. This week, the Pirates will take on a more
grounded UAB offense in a rematch of one of ECU's
two regular season losses last year.
"They run the option, a lot Logan said. "They
put you in assignment mode. You can't really cut
it loose, everybody's got to play their assignments.
But their doing a good job on both sides of the
ball. Their No. 2 in the nation in totaf defense. On
offense, they do not turn the ball over and let the
defense win it
David Garrard (9) will need to repeat his two touchdown performance from Louisville this weekend when ECU takes on
the Blazers of UAB. (file photo)
Last year, the Pirates took their 7-1 record to Legion
Field in Birmingham where they were stunned by a
30-0 second half run by the Blazers who eventually
toppled the Pirates 36-17.
"We went down there last year thinking we could
beat them said linebacker Reggie Hamphill. "We let
them hang around too long and they really beat us last
year. Tor us to lose to them and then have fnerh come
here, there's definitely a revenge factor
The Blazer team that comes into Greenville Saturday
will be similar to the one the Pirates faced last year.
Coming into the game at 1-2 in C-USA play, the Blazers'
bowl hopes could take a serious blow if they don't
come out with a win.
"Last year we watched a lot of film on them
said tight end Rashon Burns. "The guys they had last
year were really physical and really aggressive. I've
watched film on them this year arid they got a lot more
aggressive than they we're last year. They've gotten
bigger, stronger, faster and obviously a little older
Soccer team suffers through drought
Pirates look to end
The ECU men's soccer
team has struggled of late.
Having lost their previous
four matches via the shut
out and being outscored
8-0 in those games, the
Pirates are looking for any
way out of this terrible
slump as the end of the
season draws near.
On Oct. 18, the men
played host to a very good
Coastal Carolina team
that only allowed ECU
three shots on goal and
shut the Pirate team down
During the first half
neither team was able to
get much to go their way
and a constant battle of
possession led to 0-0 tie
at the half. However, in
the first five minutes of
the second half, Coastal
Carolina would grab the
momentum by scoring
two very quick goals at
the 46:26 and 49:35 marks
of the game.
"Coastal Carolina is a
good team which deserved
this result said second
year Head Coach Devin
O'Neill, "1 was proud of
the way our kids hung in
there and did not give up,
but we just did not look
sharp in any respect
The Pirates let their
record slip to 7-8 overall
and 1-4 in the CAA with
a loss to the conference
rival Richmond Spiders on
Oct. 21. Richmond's first
goal came with just 17 sec-
onds remaining in the first
half, as Spider forward,
Craig Ziadie punched in a
shot from 18 yards out to
take the lead at intermis-
strike again one minute
into the second half on a
chip that was just out of
ECU goalie Roger Marvin-
ney's hands. Once again
the tempo and posses-
sion was controlled by
their opponent's, and
ECU's offense was shut out
for the third consecutive
game losing the match,
"We need to play
the whole ninety min-
utes said senior defender
Nick Errato. "The last
couple games have been
extremely frustrating. We
play good for a while and
then have mental lapses
that are allowing teams to
score on us and costing us
Tuesday's game against
William & Mary did not
hold any surprises. The
men were shunned from
the net, and failed to score
for the fourth consecutive
match, taking a 1-0 defeat
back to Greenville.
The single score for
the Tribe came at the
60:46 minute mark, on
a header by William &
Mary's Caleb Stewart.
Despite a good outing
by the ECU defense, the
Pirates dropped another
conference match as their
record now stands at 7-9
overall and 1-5 in CAA
"Overall its been a
decent season so far, but
we are holding ourselves
to a lot higher expecta-

Women's soccer defeats JMU, AU

ECU women's soccer

Then, in the 82nd

gave us a big lift and
Donnenwirth and his
players do not attribute
the loss to lack of effort,
but rather to poor execu-

Injury comings and goings
After sitting out for three weeks, the linebacker
tandem of Pernell Griffin and Greg Lefever look to
return to action Saturday versus UAB.
"We're going to try to get (Griffin) out on the
field a little bit Logan said. "He's not going to
play the 65-70 snaps he's accustomed to. We're
going to try to ease him back in and make sure
he doesn't get fatigued or reinjure anything in his
knee. Lefever is about the same thing but he's not
quite as far along
Griffin and Lefever both suffered injuries in
ECU's win over Syracuse.
While the ECU defense will gain two mainstays,
the squad will be without safety Anthony Adams
who suffered a back contusion in the game with
Louisville. Adams is expected to be back late in
Rare free time
Since the Pirates' game with Louisville was on a
Thursday and Fall Break canceled classes on Monday
and Tuesday, Head Coach Steve Logan gave his
team Saturday and Sunday off.
"The reason we did it was because we had
Monday and Tuesday to practice this week Logan
said. "You have to give the players a day off. It's a
good rule, so we opted to instead of coming back
and giving them Monday off because we didnt have
class to go ahead and give them Sunday off and
work them Monday and Tuesday of this week
The free weekend gave players a chance to relax,
go home or just enjoy a weekend doing the things
they don't normally get to do.
"It was actually relaxing to sit back and relax
said linebacker Reggie Hamphill. "We didn't have
any worries ail weekend. We could just sit back
and watch games, even NFL games. Because when
we practice on Sunday at 2 o'clock, we miss them
too. This week I just watched games the whole
While this weekend's opponent UAB ended
ECU's title hopes last season with a 36-17 upset win,
don't look for the Pirates to dwell on that fact.
"We went down there (last year) and they won
the game and that was that said tight end Rashon
Burns. "When you get into a situation where you're
trying to win the game because of something that
happened last year, then if you end up in a situation
where you're down at a certain point and you're
looking up at the clock, then you're like 'this is
where we were last year You tend to panic. You
can't reallv fall into that mode

Volleyball tops UNC-W
The Pirate volleyball team
wrapped up a string of road games
Tuesday night by earning a win
over in state rival UNC-W. The team
went 1-2 on the road trip and was
glad to end the trip on a positive
note completing a season sweep
of the Seahawks in a one-sided 3-0
The Team was excited with the
win and is looking forward to the
chance to stay at home in what will
be a much welcomed break from
the rigors of the road.
"It really felt good, we were
in sync as a team said senior
Sarah Kary. "We played Pirate vol-
"I think for any team it is dif-
ficult to travel for five hours in a
bus or a van and be expected to
be at the top of our game Kary
said. "When we're at home we are
moving around and have a familiar
routine instead of being crammed
up in a van
The win pushed the Pirates
record to 13-8 on the season and
4-2 in CAA play.
Their four wins already equals
the amount of conference wins
from last season and the 13 wins
over all is four more then last year's
entire win total of nine. This team
has been able to fight through
tough spots in the season and come
back with confidence.
"1 think this season is going
to be awesome said sophomore
setter Mandi Orban. "We have
worked harder as a program and as
a team. The coach has really turned
us into a positive program and we
are beginning to see the benefits
of our hard work. I'm glad we are
going to be back in our own gym
with our own fans with the support
of the ECU community behind us.
"I'm definitely looking forward
to the George Mason and American
games she said. "George Mason
because we lost to them on the
road and want to prove we can beat
them and American because they
have always been at the top of our
conference. We want to prove that
we deserved to win that first time
and that we are good enough to
beat them again
The home stretch will include
games against VCU this Friday and
William 8r Mary this Saturday. On
Halloween night the Campbell
Camels will scream into town fol-
lowed by a back to back Friday
and Saturday stand against George
Mason and defending conference
champion American University
The road trip this weekend was
the third weekend of traveling in a
row for the Pirates who were feeling
the effects of the constant travel.
"Over the weekend we struggled
a bit said coach Colleen Farrell.
"We didn't play as well as we have
been in the past. Being on the road
for the third weekend in a row
is tough we let down and when
you are on the road you have to
concentrate that much more
The team now gets to prepare
the home stretch by playing six
of their last nine at home with
their road game at NC State before
closing with Va Tech.
"I think we are in very good
spirits Farrell said. "We had some
time off this weekend for Fall Break
and being at home and playing
in your own environment is more

Strawberry arrested again, jailed
TAMPA, Fla. (AP)-Troubled

It's time for Fountainhead.
In keeping with the spooky
spirit of the season, we have
gone overboard and filled
many of the following pages
with Halloween material so
that we can all better prepare
for Tuesday's great adven-
tures. So get your costumes
together, boys and girls,
'cause it's gonna be a wild
one. And say 'hi' if you see
me downtown. I'll be the Jedi
in leather pants.
You will notice that my pic-
ture is not in this issue. Well,
not where you can tell it's
me, anyway. We had a pro-
posal on the table to start
calling the publication Emily-
head and plaster my beaming
face across every front cover
and at the top of every page,
but it was voted down by the
office ghosts because they hate
me. I swear I'm not a narcissist.
I don't even like to talk about
myself. So for those of you
hoping to get a glimpse of my
darling mug again, I'm sorry to
We had very minimal
response last month to the new
version of the Fountainhead.
That either means nobody's
reading it or everybody likes it
-people always respond when
they're mad about something.
Once again, we encourage you
to let us know how you like the
publication so we can improve
things that aren't working and
keep the things that are. Plus,
we crave the affirmation. We
love it when people tell us how
wonderful we are. Or we think
we do. We don't really get
many of those, so there's
no way to be sure. Usually
our e-mails have lots of cuss
words and suggestions on
various places on our bodies
to stick sharp objects.
So enjoy this month's
issue. We've included a few
reviews, an interview with a
band from Wilmington, Hal-
loween costume suggestions,
a holiday history lesson and
other assorted informative
and entertaining articles. So
we hope, anyway. Let us
know what you think.

around the corner. For many,
simply hearing this word
triggers blurry memories of
thousands of costume-clad
maniacs surrounding each

apparent reason but to
After a few years in Green-
ville, it seems all associations
with Halloween such as
candy, jack-o-lanterns, and
the like are hard to come
by, but in other parts of the
world they still make the hol-
Many of the Halloween
traditions known today are
direct descendants of tradi-
tions practiced years ago.
According to folklore pro-
fessor Chip Sullivan, the day
we refer to as "Halloween"
originated as a Celtic new
year festival, probably some
time during the pre-Christian
era. November first signified
the new year in the Celtic cal-
endar, and the accompanying
festival of Samhain (so-win)
was celebrated Oct. 31.
The current moniker of
"Halloween" was given by
the Christian church, which
wanted to make it
an official Chris-
"Hallow is an old
form of the word
holy, and the Christian name
was another way to say holy
evening Sullivan said.
All Halloween traditions of
today have roots in the Celtic
culture of long ago. Trick-or-
treating can be traced back to
the practice of people leaving
food out for the visiting spirits
of deceased family members
or friends, who would wander
back on this one day that
allowed for spirits to transcend
into our world.
Dressing in costume for Hal-
loween was practiced as a way
for people to disguise them-
selves as spirits. The Celtic
people would guide the spirits
to their homes by placing a
candle in a turnip or a gourd
near their door.
The American version of this
practice is obviously the jack-o-
lantern, which is made using a
pumpkin. This is likely due to
the lack of gourds during colo-
Contrary to some conser-
vative views, Halloween was
never intended for causing
trouble and mischief.
"Some people believe Hallow-
een to be related to satanic or
devil celebration, and this is
incorrect Sullivan said.

Top 13 Halloween favorites
Don't just watch Evil Dead and call it a night. We've gone
through our memory banks and selected only the classiest, most
spirited holiday material for your viewing and listening pleasure.
These are our favorites: the movies, TV shows, radio broadcasts
and songs that make Halloween feel like Halloween. Now you
have no excuses.
1 - Movie Halloween
Naturally. You just can't have Old Hallow's Eve without Michael
Myers. Once upon a time, this lovable little scamp donned a white
mask and started chasing his sister, 0amie Lee Curtis) around with
a pumpkin-carving knife on the very night of Halloween. He is an
indestructible foe who always gets up after they kill him so he can
come back for the next sequel.
2 - Movie "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown"
Haven't you heard of the Great Pumpkin? He only comes once
a year to give lots of candy to all the good little girls and boys
who wait for him in the pumpkin patch. So while Charlie Brown
chases the cute little red-headed girl and the Peanuts gang bobs for
apples and begs for candy, Linus spends the whole of Halloween
waiting in the pumpkin patch, despite the jeers and practical jokes
he endures. He is rewarded greatly.
3 - Music Video "Thriller"
Michael Jackson turns into a yellow-eyed werewolf and tries to
eat his date with Vincent Price and some zombies from a nearby
graveyard. This was a first in both music and video. It's thriller
4 - Radio Broadcast
Orson Welles version of War of the Worlds
One Halloween eve in 1938, Orson Welles and his acting troupe
scared the mess out of the entire American radio audience by per-
forming an altered version of H.G. Welles' War of the Worlds live.
Although they warned listeners before the performance began,
many were taken in by the idea that Martians were invading and
killing everything in sight. People grabbed their guns and went
looking for these evil creatures. Pure genius, and scary even if you
already know it's not for real. Now you can download it from the

Some Candy" skit from "Saturday Night Live"

swamp is haunted with
baby spirits. There used to
be a plantation here with
many houses. When slave
babies were born, they
were of no good use to
the plantation owners, so
they were drowned in the
swamp. If you walk over
to the swamp, you can still
hear the babies' cries.

ghost story called "The

it's as safe as it is fun, there
are some rules you should all
know before you don your
costumes and head out into
"We want students to have
a good time, but to just
be safe said Janet Johnson,
assistant director for Uni-
versity Judicial and Special
Projects. She says that even
on Halloween, the standard
campus alcohol policies still
apply. If you're not 21, you
can't drink. If you are 21,

Those students living on

their ECU One Cards with

Just when you thought reality TV couldn't get weirder.
In an effort to one-up "Survivor MTV puts some cocky
young volunteers in a known haunted building for the
night and makes them do stuff to see how scared they
get. Some of the things that happen are super-creepy.
8 - Movie Carrie
They're all laughing at her, so she kills them. This
is one film that teaches us all not to make fun of the
strange girl with telekinesis. At her high school prom, the
other kids dump pig's blood on Carrie's head. In response
she blows up the gym and everyone inside it, then goes
home and pulls the house down on her and her mother's
heads. Talk about overreacting.
9 - Movie The legend of Sleepy Hollow
Any version of this one will do, as long as it pits
Ichabod Crane against the Headless Horseman out in
Puritan country. A scary pumpkinhead freak rides on
horseback, chopping off heads in the woods while a
New York schoolteacher (or constable, if you go by the
Johnny Depp version) gets very freaked out. Based on
Washington Irving's story.

"The Simpsons" Halloween special
America's favorite animated family finds itself in all
kinds of scary holiday scrapes. They get abducted by
aliens, move into a haunted house where they try to kill
each other, and Ted Flanders turns Homer into a zombie
who chases his family down a dark Springfield road. They
do lots of other funny stuff, too.

Only the chosen one can stop the demons from getting
that last piece of the puzzle that will let them rule the

WB's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"
Just forget the movie ever existed. Sarah Michelle
Cellar is a hardcore vampire-killing machine in the body
of a mild-mannered college girl. She surrounds herself
with odd people who have even odder names and spends
her nights patrolling graveyards in Sunnydale, Ca. Some-
how this show manages to investigate the troubles of
growing up middle-class in America and the growing
problem of evil creatures running loose in the streets at
the same time. Wow.

Local Band Profile:
Feel Love Fury
They call it "mutty rock"
because it combines elements
from several different genres.
But to the listener in the
audience, Feel Love Fury
plays clean, smooth guitar
riffs with constant chord pro-
gression changes, echoed by
the steady drum set and
toppedoff with melodic,
emotional vocals. In other
words, very pretty, but very
much rock 'n' roll.
"We're kind of in the
minority as far as bands
go said vocalist and guitar
player Stefan Hajek. "We're
not doing anything that any-
body else is doing. We're not
doing rap core and we're not

For the past two years,
Hajek, guitarist Jesse Rains,
bassist Darell Allen and
drummer Kevin Cullen have
been creeping their way up
the music ladder in Wilm-
ington, N.C. They started

they wrote enough songs
for a set and recorded their

That sound is a culmination
of varied musical interests.
Rains and Allen grew up on
heavy metal and '80s hair
bands. Cullen has an affinity
for standard rock bands like
Aerosmith, although he also
digs the occasional dance tune.
Hajek comes from a folk and
acoustic background, a back-
ground that becomes obvious
when he sings. But when these
four musicians come together,
their different genres blend
together nicely to form one

agreements with downtown
businesses to increase safety
and order, such as requiring
plastic cups for beverage sale
and not allowing alcohol out-
side the business.
Since 1992, the celebration
has occurred with minimal
incidents, possibly because the
crowds have typically been
smaller and more local.

Spike Lee has stepped out-
side the mainstream one
more time with his most con-
troversial work yet, Bamboo-
zled, the Minstrel Show.

Have you ever heard the
cliche, "Be careful what you
wish for?" If you have, you
have one foot in the door to
understanding the profundity
of the movie Bedazzled.
Have you ever wondered
what, if anything, you would
give to be liked, loved and
respected by that certain
person? What would you
do? Those are two questions
the movie poses and some-
thing you should really think
Bedazzled's main character
Elliot Richards (Brendan
Fraser), plays the dorky, self-
Tommy Davidson. Wayans
plays a writer who creates a
network TV minstrel show in
blackface that is set on a planta-
tion. Although he intends for it
to show how negatively society
perceives Blacks in America, the
show gains great success on the
Lee's genius and master of cer-
emonial and exploratory docu-
mentation of significant periods
of American history is now leg-
endary. Treater critics will howl
with disappointment because
Hollywood and New York want
to deny its petrified history of
racism and discrimination.
Bamboozled hits Hollywood
conscious guy who always tries
to fit in. Yeah, we know the
type or have been there our-
selves. He is always rejected
by those around him because
they don't take him seriously
and don't respect him. He's a
doormat essentially for other
people's ridicule. The devil
(Elizabeth Hurley) is a seductive
and witty masterpiece. Even
though all of her outfits, with
the exception of one, are kinky,
revealing red threads which
are pretty cute, she flicks and
flashes across the screen flaunt-
ing her personality and body at
Elliot and moviegoers.
The action, dialogue and
personality of the movie are
all easy for the audience to
get into. The characters are
all funny and laid-back. The
comedy each one brings to the
moguls and New York theater
executives squarely in the face
with some hard and pene-
trating images. Images that
they perpetrated on the Ameri-
can public for decades. Images
that negated the talents and
humanity of black people
everywhere. Images that hurt
and marauded the human soul
and psyche, and helped to
maintain the status quo of
racism in every corner of this
One of the most resounding
of these images is the ritual
of creating the minstrel-show

nish red lipstick are applied

behind it but is portrayed in
an easy, comfortable way we
understand and can laugh at.
The movie begins with blurps
appearing beside various peo-
ple's heads naming some "loser,
cheater, has bad credit, sleazy,
etc The whole time these
blurps are appearing on the
screen, you are wondering "Is
this God telling us or the
Devil?" But given the source of
the movie, you'd have to sus-
pect the latter.
Once the movie gets rolling,
you see how much of a loner
Elliot is. His co-workers think
he's a total idiot and hide
from him when they go out
in public. Because of his lone-
liness and another important
element (to which I will not
disclose), Elliot actually meets

at the wise cracking remarks
between the devil and Elliot,
you're gonna be thinking,

really smart things the devil

Originally, since it was Hal-
loween and all, I was going to
have my palm read, but those
two ladies in the phone book
were just downright creepy.
One, according to her husband,
was "on the tahlet and the
other sounded like she smoked
a good 10 packs of cigarettes
and a couple of joints every
day, in addition to wanting
$100 just to get in the door.
1 definitely do not trust my
future to their interpretations. I
think I would prefer someone
with a secretary.
So someone suggested the
Ouija (pronounced wee-jee)
1 never used to put much
stock in this stuff. I used to
say that anything I couldn't
see were pretty much suspect,
but ever since I saw that
John Edward show on Sci-Fi I
haven't had as many heebie-
jeebies left to worry about. But
I'm fairly certain that during
this whole Ouija board experi-
ence the rest of my heebie-jee-
bies packed their bags and left.
I am now completely heebie-
Three of us TEC girls got
together at the office one night
and hid ourselves in the dark-
room so it would be especially
spooky. We set out the board
and six candles-all that Feng
Shui stuff that made the room
smell like wood and fire and
earth and water. Apparently
ghosts really like hippies.
So anyway, we sat around
the board very symmetrically
with the lights off, staring at
this board and chanting to our-
selves. They told me that if
1 didn't take it seriously the
ghost might get really ticked
off and leave. That was the
hardest part because 1 am
not one to take chanting and
This is the Ouija board and our hands as we prepare to call up the spirits. Notice the hippie candles and. for
added effect, the pumpkin I brought from my kitchen. At this point we still had the lights on.

smelly candles and spirits I
can't see pushing my hand
around a board very seriously.
That's what my heebie-jeebies
I don't know if the other two
were pushing that little piece of
plastic around just to freak me
out-they say they weren't,
but those girls are mighty
shady characters-but I defi-
nitely had nothing to do with
it. That thing slid all over the
board with our fingers lightly
attached. Sometimes it would
slip from letter to letter to
spell words. But we usually had
more luck with yes or no ques-
We found out that we have
three ghosts in our office, and
one of them killed Jane. We
never figured out who Jane
was, although the ghost who
killed her told us to guess, but
he swears he did not kill her
on purpose. All this we learned
before I spilled hippie candle
wax on my pants.
That was about when we lost
reception. I think the ghosts
got sick of me making jokes
about what the white wax
now embedded in my gray
pant material looked like.
They told us they only
liked five of the employees
here at the paper, and I
don't think I'm one of
them. So if this is my
last column and somebody
finds me prone in front of
my computer some rainy
Sunday evening, you'll all
know why. The ghosts
don't like my columns.
