Greenville's own Hal-
loween 'Mardi Gras' went
over Tuesday night with-
out any major problems.
Police officers blocked
off 5th, Evans, Reade, and
Cotanche streets in prepa-
ration of the evening's
festivities that occur every
year on Halloween. Stu-
dents, locals and out-of-
towners filled the streets
as police surrounded the
perimeter of the crowd to
maintain control.
Costumes ranged from
the Britney Spears school
girl look to a Jim
Belushi-type character
from Animal House. Sev-
eral students were seen
riding on the shoulders
of others throughout the
crowd, and a few female
flashers were also spot-
ted.
According to the ECU
Police Department
(ECUPD), there were three
arrests reported from the
Greenville Police Depart-
ment (GPD). Both depart-
ments and students agreed
this year's Halloween was
quieter than past Hallow-

Officers from various
counties patroled the vicin-

Jewish, Muslim
groups compare
perspectives
J. P. Nasse
STAFF WRITER
Representatives from
ECU's Jewish and Muslim
student organizations
recently offered their
perspectives on the his-
tory of the region in
Israel where conflict has
occurred between the Pal-
estinians and Israelis, and
spoke about the recent
violence in that area.
For 52 years, the Pal-
estinians and Israelis have
clashed time and time
again within country of
Israel. A steady stream
of violence continues to
pour out of the region
despite efforts by the
United States and others
to bring about a lasting
peace.
The most recent
exchanges between Pales-
tinians and Israeli soldiers
have resulted in at least
139 deaths.
Dr. Saeed Dar helped
found the tint ECU chap-
ter of the Muslim Student
Association 18 years ago.
He has served as the fac-
ulty adviser to the group
for many years. Dar offers
his thoughts as to the
cause of this situation.
"The problem is not
really between the Arabs
and the Jews Dar said.
"There was no problem
until 1948. The problem in
my view is Zionism Dar
said.
Zionism is defined by
the Jewish Student Online
Research Center as "the
national movement for the
return of the Jewish people
to their homeland and the
resumption of Jewish sov-
ereignty in the Land of
Israel
According to Dar, Zion-
ist Jews uprooted the Pal-
estinians from the area that
is now Israel.
"There are essentially
two issues Dar said.
"There is the Islamic issue
that relates to Jerusalem
and a Palestinian-Israeli
issue that relates to the
land
Carol Woodruff, who
serves as the faculty adviser
for the student Jewish
group Hillel, argues that
the 1948 war establishing
Israel as a country was nec-
essary.
"We were winning back
what was rightfully ours
Woodruff said. "I under-
stand the tensions and
pulls, but I think it's very
important for the Jews to
have a homeland
Student representatives
from both the Muslim
and Jewish student groups
shared similar concerns on
the recent violence and
escalating death toll. Joc-
elyn Friedman, president
of Hillel, deplored the vio-
lence.
"I am sad about it
because it should be
resolved, but it's not going
to be until both sides kind
of bend a little Friedman
said. "I am anti-violence;
I hate fighting but it's
hard when it's coming
from both sides
Ayaz Patahn, a sec-
ond-year medical student
and Muslim, mourns the
loss of the Palestinians
killed in recent clashes.
"In our religion it is
said that all the Muslims
around the world are of
one body and when one
part of the body is hurt-
ing the rest of the body
feels it Patahn said. "We
are hurting when we see
killing like that
While members of
the Muslim Student Asso-
ciation and Hillel agreed
that the violence in Israel
was tragic, they differed
sharply on their views of
the tenuous situation.
Delsin Kahn, presi-
dent of the ECU Muslim
Student Association, crit-
icized the Israeli soldiers
for firing live ammuni-
tion at rock-throwing
Palestinian teenagers.
"A majority of these
people killed have no
way of fighting back;
the only weapons they
have are rocks and
the Israeli soldiers have
guns Kahn said. "It
seems like the soldiers are
focusing on the children
and I don't understand
why
Friedman offered his
response to this criticism
against the Israeli forces.
"I think a lot of it is
people trying to protect
themselves and people
trying to keep the peace
he said. "You can't stand
still when someone is
attacking you; you can
not do anything
Patahn believes that
the United States media
unfairly portrays the Pal-
estinians as the aggressors
in the conflict.
"A lot of the headlines
you see are like two Israelis
killed and in Congress
they talk about Palestinian
aggression, but in all 130
Palestinians have been
killed and maybe half a
dozen Israelis Patahn
said. "Why is it that the
so-called aggressors are
being massacred?"
Woodruff says that the
Israeli response is a natu-
ral reaction to years of
Jewish persecution and
anti-Semitism.
"We have 5,000 years
of somebody saying, we
don't believe in you, we
want to eradicate you
she said.
Woodruff also dis-
agrees with those who
claim that Muslim's have
no true right to the land.
"This is our home-
land for 5,000 years guys
Woodruff said. "The
Arabs own 99 percent
of the Middle East; we
have one-tenth of one
percent of the land. Is that
so much to ask?"
The most recent fight-
ing between the Muslims
and Jewsover Palestine
erupted around a holy
site in Jerusalem. Dar

The time is finally here for
ECU students to make a difference
in the future of their school.
Personally, I'm tired of hear-
ing about the bond referendum
and seeing all of the literature
about it. But, Nov. 7 is Election
Day and is the time to show that
ECU cares about other University
of North Carolina schools and
our own environment.
Without the bond our school's
physical academic environment-
the buildings in which we learn
and research-will suffer. We need
this $190 million bond passed
so, for the sake of the United
States and your next president
and for the sake of ECU, vote!
On Monday, the Legislature
approved constitutions of the
ECU Association of latino-Span-
ish Affairs, the ECU School of
Health and Human Performance
Graduate Student Organization
and Phi Eta Sigma. Thanks to
those organizations for getting
their act together and submit-
ting their constitution to the
Rules and Judiciary Committee
of SGA. If you need to do the
same, drop off a copy to the
SGA office located in Room 255
of Mendenhall Student Center
(MSC).

SIU Halloween party lives down to expectations
CARBONDALE, III.
(U-WIRE-The City Council placed
the future of Halloween In the
hands of Southern Illinois Univer-
sity-Carbondale students, and some
would say they tossed it away in
flames.
The weekend marked the first
time the Strip was open on Hal-
loween weekend since 1994, and
the first two days saw one tree, a
bicycle, two store signs destroyed
and several windows broken. Most
of the damage occurred Friday
night; police were content to moni-
tor the crowd and let the Strip clear
itself.
When Saturday night brought
fires to the Strip, Carbondale Police
Chief R.T. Finney had enough.
Police moved in on the crowd
ordering them to disperse, and
when they did not, police sprayed
several shots of Mace into the
crowd. That got them moving.
"We held back a long time
said Finney.
Finney said that with the fires
that were lit, windows broken, and
the crowd pelting the police, it was
time to end things.
Initially, a pillow that had
been tossed among the crowd was
torched and at times tossed in the
air while on fire. The crowd built
a small bonfire in the middle of
Illinois Avenue, feeding it T-shirts
and other articles of lothing. Young
men were picking up the T-shirts
and spinning them, sending show-
ers of sparks and occasionally bits
of flaming cloth into onlookers.
It was a fire started on a parking
meter, again fueled by clothing,
that signaled things had gone too
far. As police, City Council mem-
bers and SIUC officials watched, a
flaming T-shirt was flung into the
branches of the tree outside of El
Greco, 516 S. Illinois Ave. It was at
that point Finney ordered his men
into position to begin
moving the crowd. As police
advanced from the north, the edges
of the crowd began moving south,
then stalled. It was then that police
used fogger cans to send Mace into
the crowd.
"We gave them several warn-
ings Finney said. "When they
didn't adhere to them, the Mace
was necessary
Finney described Saturday's
crowd, which was estimated at
more than 2,000, more aggressive
than Friday's crowd.
The estimated 1,300 that gath-
ered on the Strip Friday may have
been less aggressive, but they were
at least as destructive. Saturday
saw damage to windows in Jimmy
John's Gourmet Submarine Sand-
wich Shop, 519 S. Illinois Ave and
Old Town Liquors, 514 S. Illinois
Ave.

Alum gives millions to improve status of women in sciences
LOS ANGELES (U-WIRE)-An
anonymous alumnus donated
$26.5 million to the University
of Southern California for the
purpose of improving the status of
women in science and engineer-
ing, the university announced
Friday.
As the Daily Trojan reported
on Oct. 16, a variety of social fac-
tors appear to discourage women
from entering careers in science
and engineering. Of the more
than 170 faculty members in the
School of Engineering, only two
are women.
The university plans to use
the funds to bring about greater
gender equality in the sciences
and engineering by recruiting
female faculty more aggressively,
providing extra research assistants
and establishing scholarships for
undergraduate, graduate and post
graduate female students, Vice
Provost Joseph Hellige said.
The university also intends to
encourage women at every step
of their education in hopes that
more women will enter the male-
dominated world of the sciences
and engineering.
Eleven percent of USC's science
professors and 6 percent of the engi-
neering faculty are female, accord-
ing to the Los Angeles Times.
Yet, only 3 percent of tenured
professors in engineering are
women.
USC intends to combat statistics
like these with programs made
possible by the donation, working
to hire and retain more experienced
female faculty and better train
junior faculty currently at the
university, Provost Lloyd Armstrong
Jr. said in a press release.
USC officials have been aware
for nearly a year and half that the
donation was forthcoming, Hellige
said. But despite the advance notice,
officials are unsure of how to use
the money.
"We're still working out the
details Hellige said.
However, the response among
female faculty within the sciences
has been overwhelmingly positive.
"It's a great gift and we are very
excited about it Jean Morrison,
associate professor of earth sciences,
told the Times. "There are so few
of us in science, it should have a
significant impact
While the donation is likely to
prove beneficial to the status of
women in the sciences and engi-
neering, past efforts have failed to
bring about great gender equality.
Some felt that the university should
have done more after the 1997
Gender Equity Committee report
detailed the disparity between the
male to female faculty ratios.
"It's an issue that the university
has tried to work on for a long
time Hellige said. "Recruiting and
retaining the very best faculty in
science, regardless of gender, is a
very expensive proposition.
"It's not that there's failure to
acknowledge the problem. It's a
slow process at best and every extra
resource that we can put into it
will just enable us to create an
environment that is conducive to
successful women in science

Melee prompts officials to rethink
bar policy, university schedule
CARBONDALE, 111. (AP)-City
and university officials said Monday
they had no choice but to rethink
a rule that allowed bars to stay
open on a Halloween weekend that
turned ugly in this southern Illinois
college town.
More than 100 people were
arrested late Friday and Saturday
nights after college-age revelers
swarmed downtown streets near
the Southern Illinois University
campus.
There were no reports of serious
injuries, but officials said there were
several fights. Bottles also were
thrown into windows, a bonfire
was started and pieces of it were
thrown into a crowd and a tree was
vandalized.
"The hooliganism of British
soccer fans came to mind in some
of those scenes John Jackson,
SIU's chancellor said Monday. "It's
unconscionable behavior by kids
who have too much beer in them,
basically
Bob Ledberter, deputy chief of
the Carbondale Police Department,
said officers arrested 79 people. He
said it was difficult to determine
how many of those were students,
though 33 of them had Carbondale
addresses. SIU police arrested an
additional 28 people; half of them
students.
Charges ranged from reckless
conduct, battery, damage to prop-
erty and mob action to public
urination and resisting a police
officer.
Though SIU has long had a
reputation among college students
as a Halloween party place, things
had been fairly quiet in recent years.
That prompted the Carbondale
City Council to narrowly approve
a measure allowing bars to reopen
on Halloween weekend.
Larry Briggs, the city council
member who proposed allowing
the bars to reopen, said he had little
doubt the council would have to
reconsider the measure at Its Nov.
7 meeting.
"I'm disappointed. I think the
students kind of screwed up said
Briggs, who is also an associate
professor in SIU's school of art and
design. "They had a great chance
to prove to a lot of people that
they could pull this off. 1 think
with some help from outsiders they
chose not to do that
The university was closed foi
fall break from last Friday through
Wednesday, although dormitories
remained open. Jackson said he
began to worry last week as word
spread throughout the Midwest
that the bars would be open.
"The word was out that Carbon-
dale was open and people should
flock here Jackson said, noting
that one of the rowdiest of those
arrested was from Western Illinois
University.
Still, he said SIU students
involved in the melee were hardly
off the hook. Those charged with
damaging property or who were
involved in fights could face sus-
pension.
MIDDLE EAST from page 1
explained the
significance of
this site known
to the Muslims
as ilarim as
Scharif.
"It Is the sight
I that the Koran
indicates where
Mohammed
traveled to, from
Mecca in Saudi
Arabia, to this
sight the Harim
as Scharif Dar
said. "From there
he ascended into
Heaven and
came back.
"In short,
this is the third holiest place in
Islam. The Muslims are not saying
they will take over the Jewish site
but they want free control of their
own site Dar said.
On the same compound exists
the Temple Mount, a holy spot for
Jews.
"It is where Solomon's temple
was Woodruff said. "It is one of
the most sacred places of the Jewish
tradition. I find it interesting that
one person going to the Muslim
side to pray is what incited all
this violence. Where does that
come from? Cer-
tainly, he has right
to visit that spot
without inciting
violence
Some inter-
national policy
experts believe
that true peace
in the region will
only come about
through a newly recognized Pales-
tine state.
"Palestine isn't really anything
there is no such thing as a Pales-
tinian country or nation or people
Woodruff said, when asked if she
would support a Palestinian state.
"The people who live in Palestine
are Arabs, they could be Jordanians
or Syrians, so actually I think not
Dar strongly sympathizes with
the Palestinians' effort to win state-
hood.
"The Palestinians are under
a state of occupation Dar said.
"They have basic fundamental
rights as guaranteed by the United
Nations to resist that occupation
Dar said. "They are resisting that

To understand the situa-
tion of the Middle East,
one must take time to
listen to both sides. The
Palestinians are passion-
ate about their land and
so are the Jews. Here at
TEC we have put forth
the effort to supply the
uninformed student with
just that: both sides of
the issue.
OUR VIEW
The history of Middle Eastern contention is as long as the history of
the region itself. It is a conflict seeded in the biblical past when Abraham
promised the lands of Israel to his son Isaac, the fountainhead of the
)udeo-Christian traditions.
Ejected from their land by persecuting Romans and Babylonians, the Jewish
people have roamed throughout the world, waiting, for the chance to reclaim
their once cherished land. During this long Diaspora, the highly contested
region of Israel was occupied and reoccupied by Romans, Babylonians,
crusaders, and Muslims. It is the center of the Christian, Islamic and Jewish
traditions, and is now the center of global disputes over the regions balance
of power and oil.
To understand the situation of the Middle East, one must take time to
listen to both sides. The Palestinians are passionate about their land and so are
the Jews. Here at TEC we have put forth the effort to supply the uninformed
student with just that: both sides of the issue.
Most Americans know little about the struggles of the Middle East; the issue
does not seem to directly affect us. Many wonder why it is that our government
gives more foreign aid to Israel than to any other country in the world a
country the size of Rhode Island! Yet many wonder why the Palestinians won't
take advantage of Israel's growing economy, and live in peace.
We at TEC find it hard to take a side. We are taking the time to see both
sides of the conflict, so that we may continue to help educate others on
this escalating problem.
jeoHetU McGUUan IN MY OPINION
Racial profiling endures
IN MYOPINION
Fraternities, sororities don't deserve bad reps
What is your personal view
about fraternities and sororities?
Have you ever bothered to stop
and think about them and what
they really symbolize? Do the
images you have of them consist
of drunken socials and slim, petite
little sorority girls and guys that
only wear khaki's?
If you answered yes to either
part of this question, you are
sadly mistaken. You have, what
we call, contributed to the sorority
fraternity bad reputation.
As a female, people find it odd
when 1 tell them I'm part of a fra-
ternity. They automatically assume
I'm mistaken about What 1 am a
part of and say, "You're not in a
fraternity. You're in a sorority
No guys, there are fraternities
out there that are coed and I, along
with many other females at ECU,
are a part of them. Therefore, I take
it personally when people say that
the only thing that fraternities and
sororities do is get together, get
drunk and party.
I just want to let the ECU popu-
lation and anyone else reading this
article know that each sorority and
fraternity has a focus. Many may
concentrate on the social aspect,
but not all.
Many sororities and fraternities
focus on service. These organiza-
tions stand outside of Kroger asking
people to give what they can to help
a family in needs. It's these people
that volunteer to cook at the Ronald
McDonald House, which houses
sick and terminally ill children and
their families. It's these people that
walk the city streets picking up
litter inconsiderate people throw
out of their car windows.
Yes, many organizations do
more service than others, but over-
all, we need to say "thank you
They are trying to make a difference
in the lives of others and their
community. Now the question is,
are you doing anything to help
out?
On the other hand, you've got
those organizations that only do
one big project a year in terms of
service and they are recognized and
given a pat on the back. Where's
the recognition for the organization
that volunteers their time every
week at several different organiza-
tions because of their desire to help
others?
Each organization knows what
it is truly about. How they may
truly act and how they display
themselves to the public are totally
different. I've heard so many people
talking about "dumb, ditzy" soror-
ity girls and "cocky, egotistic
frat guys that think they're all
that. Some may, but not all of us
who are in one of those organiza-
tions should have to pay for those
people's appearances.
There are individuals within
these groups that think that just
because they are a member, they are
better than you, the nonmember.
Those people need to be brought
back down to planet Earth. Just
because you're carrying the title
of a Brother or a Sister in that
organization doesn't mean you are
above anyone else.
Not all Brothers and Sisters
should pay for these bad attitudes.
There's a difference between being
proud of what you and your orga-
nization symbolize and having such
a bad attitude that your organiza-
tion is looked down on. So keep
that in mind.
My point is, members of all
sororities and fraternities shouldn't
be judged based on the reputation
some have proudly made for them-
selves. Make your own reputation,
whether It be bad or good. Don't
forget the ideals of what your chap-
ter is based upon. It's bad enough
some people still consider ECU a
party school only to be told, "Oh
you're in a sorority. You must
party extra hard Not only is this
statement not true, but it offends
me to think that people actually
believe it.
I know that I, along with the
members of my fraternity, do all we
can in terms of volunteering and
making donations to agencies in
need of help. For any organization
whose primary focus is to uphold
its name to the utmost honor and
respect, don't let the bad reputa-
tion issue bring you down. Keep
doing your best and people will
see the positive contributions your
organization makes. It is safe to
say it's not right to prejudge an
organization unless you know what
they're about.

CINCINNATI (U-WIRE)-This
May, defense attorney Johnnie I
Cochran Jr. visited Cincinnati to
talk about justice in America at
the University of Cincinnati's 11th
Annual African-American Leader-
ship Conference.
Cochran said racial profiling, or
targeting minorities solely because
of their skin color, was a problem
facing the country.
"Recently there has been a lot of
attention given to D.W.B driving
while Black. It's not only D.W.B
but also F.W.B flying while Black,
S.W.B shopping while Black and
W.W.B walking while Black
Cochran said.
Recently, there has been even
more attention given to racial
profiling. Newly disclosed docu-
ments have revived the racial profil-
ing scandal in New Jersey, where
state administrators admitted last
year some police officers were stop-
ping and searching motorists based
on race.
According to the New York
Times, the new documents show
police found evidence of racial
profiling by highway officers as
early as 1996 and deliberately hid
data from federal investigators.
A federal judge may order
Former Attorney General Peter G.
Verniero, now a justice of the New
Jersey Supreme Court, to testify.
The judge said he would permit
an attorney to question Verniero
unless the Attorney General's office
admits when exactly it became
aware of racial profiling occur-
rences.
Trooper Emblez Longoria is
suing the New Jersey State Police
because he said he was afraid of the
consequences if he resisted orders
to participate in racial profiling. In
addition to the new developments,
racial profiling has gained attention
from the presidential candidates. In
a debate at Wake Forest University
two weeks ago, both Vice President
Al Gore and Texas Gov. George
W. Bush said they opposed racial
profiling.
"I can't imagine what it's like to
be singled out because of race and
stopped and harassed Bush said.
"That's flat wrong
Bush said he would support a
federal law to stop racial profiling.
Gore said, if elected, he would
institute a federal ban on racial
profiling, "the first civil rights act
of the 21st century
According to The Village Voice,
approximately 50 White and Black
officers participated in an unscien-
tific survey and say clothes and
posture contribute fo the decision
to stop a person. Using a composite
sketch, officers assigned high and
low percentages to brand-name
clothes, hats and shoes. The officers
estimated baseball caps worn at
an angle accounted for about 10
percent of their stops. Red and blue
bandannas can account for 20 per-
cent and XXL hooded sweatshirts
can account for 20 percent. They
also said sagging dungarees could
account for 30 percent of stops and
exposed plaid boxer shorts account
for 10 percent.
The officers in the survev said
they base the last 10 percent
of clothing stops on expensive,
unlaced high-top sneakers, which
can suggest the person may have
"done prison time The officers
also said they are less likely to
stop Caucasians wearing similar
clothing.
It is at the same time both fortu-
nate and unfortunate racial profil-
ing is gaining so much attention.
It is unfortunate because the
increasing attention is character-
istic of a serious issue. The atten-
tion politicians, media and others
are giving racial profiling is occur-
ring because of the severity of the
problem. On the other hand, it is
fortunate because attention may
lead to solutions and preventative
measures. These solutions and
measures will help lead to change.
However, it will take time and
effort to change. Some argue racial
profiling does not exist. They say
police simply profile people who
look suspicious.
According to the Sew York
Times, recent reports show that
between 1995 and 1997, 70 percent
of drivers stopped by Maryland
State Police on Interstate Route 95
were black. Only 17.5 percent of all
drivers were black. In addition, 62.7
percent of drug offenders sent to
state prison are Black, whereas there
are five times as many White drug
users as Black drug users nationally.
With these statistics, and many
more like them, it is hard to ignore
the ugly truth: racial profiling is
alive and well in America.

A true Pirate's Halloween tradition
For the past four years, I have
participated in the Halloween fes-
tivities at ECU. During my fresh-
man year, I was just plain scared.
The chaos of intoxicated people
behaving as if nothing could hurt
them truly startled me. I was also
shocked to see some of the crude
costumes that some people had
concocted.
My sophomore year, I was a bit
more relaxed. I dressed up as a bell
hop girl, had a couple glasses of
"special" Kool-Aid and charged the
streets just like all of those people
that had scared me the year before.
Although I had a good time that
year, a lot of Kool-Aid can make you
feel not so good the next day, or the
next three days for that matter.
Last year, I spent lots of cash on
a go-go girl costume and partied
like a rock star in true Pirate tradi-
tion. I was sure after last year that
nothing could top my Halloween
fun, but for the first time in my life,
I was wrong.
This year I chose a different
route, and it made all the difference
in the world. I began my nightat at
Boli's, so I could watch the streets
fill up as the night progressed.
The streets were basically empty
when we arrived, but by 10:30 p.m
all of the sidewalks were buzzing
with everything from witches and
monsters to presidents and cross
dressers. Soon, the streets were
blocked off and the pavement was
unable to be seen. I sat in the
window with my closest friends
and savored my last Halloween at
ECU. It was by far the best.
While I drank some of that
famous Kool-Aid mentioned ear-
lier, I watched my fellow college
students keep a tradition alive,
and do it safely. Although safety
is always a concern on Halloween,
this year seemed more nostalgic
than threatening. I realized that
long after I graduate from ECU, buy
my Jaguar and move on to bigger
and better endeavors, a Halloween
tradition that I have grown so fond
of, will remain. There will always
be that guy that can't stand up
by himself. There will always be
those people who you really can't
figure out what they are supposed
to be. Those people who have trav-
eled far beyond the four corners
of imagination to come up with
the most brilliant costumes will
come and go as well. And most
importantly, there will always be
those girls that forget that it's
not nice to take your shirt off in
public.
But I think the most important
point here is that when the students
of ECU set out to do something, we
do it right. People come from far
away places to join us because they
know that we know how to have a
good time. Just one more memory I
will take as I go that will remind me
of how proud 1 am to be a Pirate.
Several weeks ago, the USS Cole,
on patrol in the Persian Gulf, was
attacked by suicide bombers in
Yemen while refueling. 17 service-
men and women died. This attack,
which occurred while heavy fight-
ing between Palestinians and Israe-
lis polarized the Middle East, has
contributed mightily to elevating
the United States military policy
into a major campaign issue.
This is certainly justified, for
instabilities in the Korean penin-
sula, political upheaval in the war-
torn Balkans and the ever-present
threat of Communist Chinese inva-
sion of Taiwan demand our atten-
tion not as international police-
men, but as a free nation whose aim
is to foster the expansion of democ-
racy and capitalism throughout the
world. We do this for the idealistic
aim that other nations may share
in the 'pursuit of happiness' and
so that isolated conflicts born of
economic depression and political
oppression will not lead to broader
conflagrations that directly threaten
our shores.
Both of the major presidential
candidates have recognized the dire
needs of our armed services which
must be addressed now so we can
handle the crises that loom ever-
present just over the horizon.
Governor Bush has proposed
an increase of $45 billion to the
defense budget over nine years,
with the possibility of further
increases to be considered after a
post-election review. Skipping a
"generation" of weapons to respond
to a decade of veritable technologi-
cal stagnation in the military,
ending peacekeeping missions that
do not have strategic importance
or clear-cut goals and deploying
a broad national missile-defense
system in spite of objections from
Russia are other components of the
Republican plan.
Vice-President Gore is in favor of
a100 billion defense increase over
ten years, including the allotment
of "necessary resources" to gradu-
ally modernize outdated weaponry
while cautiously developing mis-
sile defenses that will successfully
confront diplomatic opposition
and technological setbacks. Also,
he strongly supports the role
of the United States military in
peace-keeping and humanitarian
missions, maintaining that these
engagements boost troop morale.
An anonymous source working
in military supply operations sees
things differently. He points to
undercurrents of discontent and a
rapid depletion of critical resources
as dire needs that demand immedi-
ate attention.
"The men and women of our
armed services see their jobs pri-
marily as defending this country
from its enemies by spending most
of their time training and preparing
for this mission he said. "Policing
actions or humanitarian missions
are a secondary mission to them
The concern is that we will not
have the resources (both men and
weapons when a real military
action is required
"I don't see (these missions as
a morale booster he said. "In the
last four years we have conducted
several operations that employed
cruise missiles very heavily and
our stock of available missiles was
almost completely depleted
If a major conflict had arisen at
this time we would have lacked
the capability to use this valuable
resource I think we must seek
the next generation of weapons
Our future ability to thwart an
attack from a hostile government
and launch a devastating counter-
attack is the very thing that will
deter rogue nations from employ-
ing weapons of mass destruction
he said.
For this reason America must
strive to construct a missile defense
system. The United States has had
its hands tied by Russian objections
to violating a 1972 treaty concern-
ing ballistic missiles, but we must
realize that the Soviet Union is dead
and we are dealing with a different
country now.
This is a nation that has violated
our trust by defrauding billions of
dollars of IMF money intended to
build a free market system which,
instead went to strengthen the
power of the Russian Mafia that
now has a choke hold on the politi-
cal and economic systems of that
country.
Over the past seven years, Al
Gore has remained silent as military
spending has reached its lowest
levels in 20 years while active
military personnel has decreased
from 2 million strong to 1.4 mil-
lion this year. George W. Bush
has received strong support from
Generals Colin Powell and Norman
Schwartzkopf, former secretaries
of State George Schultz and Henry
Kissinger, his former opponent
Senator John McCain and his run-
ning mate, Secretary of Defense,
Dick Cheney. Entrusting Governor
Bush with the presidency ensures
that our military will no longer
be forced to compromise in an
uncompromising world.

College marijuana use a growing problem
BOSTON (AP)-Northeastern University junior
Robert Devaney says many of his fellow students have
trouble buying beer at nearby bars. Getting marijuana,
however, is much easier, he says.
"It's the alternative to drinking Devaney said
Monday. "To get alcohol, someone is going to make
sure you're of age, whereas marijuana is easily available.
I would definitely say it's a big problem on campus
A study released this week by the Harvard School
of Public Health found it's a big problem on many
campuses.
Marijuana use among college students rose 22
percent between 1993 and 1999, from 12.9 percent
of students who claimed to have used marijuana in
the previous month in 1993 to 15.7 percent in 1999
who said the same thing.
Although the increase was reported among all races
and types of students, the study found that marijuana
users are typically single, white, spend more time at
parUes and socializing with friends and spend less
time studying.
Marijuana use was higher among students who
participate in other high-risk behaviors such as binge
drinking, cigarette smoking and having multiple sexual
partners, the study found.
The study also found that marijuana use was higher
among students who perceived parties as important
" think it shows the need for colleges to approach
this problem, but it also shows the need to beef
up the programs earlier in high schools and even
middle schools
Dr. Henry Wedtsler
Harvard School of Public Health
but who said religion and community service were
not important.
The research was based on the responses of more
that 14,000 students selected randomly from 119
four-year colleges in 40 states.
"I think it shows the need for colleges to approach
this problem, but it also shows the need to beef up
the programs earlier in high schools and even middle
schools said Dr. Henry Wechsler, who headed the
study.
Marijuana use was highest at colleges in the
Northeast and lowest in Southern colleges. It was also
highest at colleges classified as "very competitive and
lowest at those considered "not competitive
The study showed that use of other illicit drugs,
such as cocaine and heroin, also increased.

HOROSCOPES
Today's Birthday: Your determina-
tion plus practice make your aspirations
achievable. Never give up.
Aries
(March 21-April 19)
You may have thought an older person
didn't like you, but you may be wrong. A
person who's been quick to criticize really
thinks you're doing a good job.
Taurus
(April 20-May 20)
Don't procrastinate, even if your mate
is giving you fits. Don't be dissuaded. You
can see what needs to be done better than
anybody else.
Gemini
(May 21-June 21)
You don't have time for romance.
Focus on a big job, instead. Chances of
making costly mistakes are high.
Cancer
(June 22-July 22)
You're doing a good job and getting a
lot of attention. Getting into a routine is
hard when things are changing.
Leo
(July 23-Aug. 22)
You may feel burdened, but don't com-
plain too much. The workload gets easier,
as somebody pitches in to help.
Virgo
(Aug. 23-Sept 22)
Love and education are linked now. Let
your enthusiasm show for soeone you find
attractive.
Libra
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You might feel like staying in bed all
day, but you'd miss a big opportunity.
Providing a service to somebody who
needs it could mean more money.
Scorpio
(Oct.23-Nov.21)
You're incredibly bright. You keep it to
yourself, though. Nobody else knows how
smart you are.
Sagittarius
(Nov.22-Dec.21)
If you're going to ask for money, do it
first thing. That could keep you busy for
a few days. Get the practical stuff out of
the way early.
Capricorn
(Dec.22-Jan. 19)
You're looking great. Your friends are
talking about you. That's why they're
giggling. Don't worry; everything they're
saying is good.
Aquarius
(Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You're up against tough competition,
but don't complain. You knew the job was
dangerous when you took it.
Pisces
(Feb. 19-March20)
You're lucky, good looking and you
have a way with words. You know just
what to say and what not to sayl

Monica voting for Hil'?
Sure, she had a bad breakup with Presi-
dent Clinton. But Monica Lewinsky may
still vote for Hillary.
Staying true to her party, the former
White House intern has registered in New
York as a Democrat. Of course, some lin-
gering resentment toward "the big creep"
could goad her to vote for Rkk Lazio. But
that seems unlikely.
Regardless of whether she votes dc
or elephant, we'd like to take a little i
for reminding Monica of her civic duty.

Student Union offers new time,

Maura Buck
FEATURES EDITOR
It's Saturday night, too early to venture down-
town in that new outfit recently purchased at
the Colonial Mall, but too late to catch dinner at
Mendenhall Student Center (MSC). It's actually
right around 9:39 p.m. The perfect solution to
this problem is attending this year's 9:39 concert
series, courtesy of the Student Union's Popular
Entertainment Committee.
The 9:39 concert series, also known as Pirate
Underground, has an exciting lineup for the month
of November.
According to committee chair Laura Windley,
the committee reviews demo tapes, as well as CDs,
to bring local and regional bands to ECU in hopes of
creating quality shows for the students.
"I really want people to come to the shows said
Windley. "The committee truly tries to appeal to as
fmany people as possible
The name, now 9:39, was changed this year to
accommodate students who want to go downtown
after the concert. The concerts typically end at
11 p.m allowing plenty of time for a stroll down
5th Street.
"It's a good opportunity to do something fun
before the partying actually starts in Greenville
said sophomore committee member Kerri Anderson.
"It's also a gTeat way to support local talent
Not only is there no admission charged, but
there is free food, as well as access to billiards and
bowling.
"There is definitely a variety of music played
said freshman committee member Hans Rearick.
"It's music that is not often played on the radio and
students aren't exposed to regularly

Excavation of grave site on hold
K1NSTON, N.C. (AP)-Exploration of a
, grave site that may contain the remains
of North Carolina's first governor is on
hold until after Halloween and Election
Day.
ECU students and archeology profes-
sor Charles Ewen spent most of Saturday
digging in a graveyard near the former
home of Richard Caswell, a Revolution-
ary War colonel who died from a stroke
in 1789 while presiding over the General
Assembly in Fayetteville. Caswell also
served two non-consecutive terms as
governor in the late 1770s.
They punched a hole into a crypt
hidden for years beneath dense bamboo
and covered with clay but were forced to
stop Just before being able to see what
was inside, Ewen said Sunday.
"I want to get this done right and
that means waiting for another week and
a half Ewen said.
The delay is due to his graduate
students facing important exams next
week and Ewen having a previous com-
mitment next weekend.
Meanwhile, the site is covered with
plastic and marked off with police tape.
Police are making extra patrols, Ewen
said.
The half-acre slice of land behind a
clinic and a bed and breakfast includes
the graves of Caswell's parents and
sister and a number of others that are
unmarked, Ewen said. However, Caswell's
wife and children are buried in another
graveyard.
A few minutes of digging on Saturday
found the top of a burial crypt. After
students spent hours clearing away dirt
and painstakingly removing each brick,
Ewen chipped away just enough brick to
create a tiny hole and measure the depth.
More than two meters down, he found
what he believed to be a coffin.
The discovery was made late in the
day and the crew had to postpone the
excavation.
"I know it's frustrating Ewen told
his students and a crowd of onlookers.
"We are basically right on top of whoever
is down there
Since the graves are believed to be
that of the governor or his parents, it
was even more frustrating for Susan
Burgess Hoffman of Williamsburg, Va.
She is a fifth-generation descendent of
Caswell.
If remains are recovered, it will take
further study to know who the person
is.
"We know we are looking for a
60-year-old white male Ewen said. "If
the bones are good, we will try and test
the DNA
The casket, burial hardware and
clothing would have to match those used
in the late 18th century. Since Caswell
was a Masonic leader, the casket could
be expected to contain artifacts of the
organization.
Grilled Polynesian Chicken
What you'll need:
2 tablespoons soy sauce, lite
1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 8 teaspoon garlic powder
4 chicken breasts
8 ounces pineapple slices, drained

In small bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger and garlic
powder; mix well. Place chicken on plate. Brush both sides of each
breast with soy mixture. Cover; let stand 15 minutes at room tempera-
ture to marinate. Heat grill. To barbeque, oil grill track. Place chicken on
gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4-6 inches from medium

minutes of cooking time. Serve sprinkled with coconut.

A Spook-tacular Night
(TMS Campus) In a move that
could temporarily save the Internet
file sharing web site Napster, Ber-
telsmann said it will team up with
Napster to form a membership-
based site that will dole out royalties
to music rights holders.
Once the new site is up and
running, Bertelsmann's music sub-
sidiary BMG will in turn drop its
lawsuit against Napster and make
its music catalog available through
the Internet site.
This recent development will be
the largest step the music industry
has taken to embrace the new file
sharing software that has spread like
wild fire throughout the Internet.
However, Napster is no longer the
main music swapping Internet
site.
Other sites - such as Gnuetella,
Hotline, JungleMonkey and FreeNet
- have increased in popularity
and use technology that allows
users to swap files without a central-
ized network. With no centralized
network, the recording industry
may find it hard, if not impossible,
to shut down the music swapping
technology.
Bertelsmann and Napster
announced the deal Tuesday, Oct.
31, and also included plans to seek
support and membership from
other four major recording compa-
nies, Sony, Universal, Warner and
EMI. The other record companies
have made no announcements.
Under the deal, Bertelsmann
will loan Napster the money to
develop the new service and retain
rights to purchase a portion of
Napster's equity.
Napster's'legal woes' aren'tcoW
pletely over, however. The company
is still caught up in court over the
Recording Industry of America's
December 1999 lawsuit, which
alleges copyright infringement. In
July, a federal judge ordered the
company to remove all copyrighted
material from its network until the
outcome of the pending trial.

sportsbriefs Men's soccer closes out CAA season with win
Time for Houston set
ECU'S final home game versus Houston
will kickoff at noon on Saturday, Nov. 11.
The game will be televised by Fox Sports
Net.
The Pirates hold a 2-1 series lead with
the last game in Greenville coming two
years ago on Halloween. In 1998, the
game was a 34-31 Houston win.
The visiting team has won each of the
games in the series.
Houston enters the game at 3-5.2-2 in
Conference-USA. ECU heads into their final
home game with hopes of securing a bowl
bid and a winning season.
Dubose out
with the Tide
n
;W
Alabama
announced
Wednesday
that Head
Football
Coach Mike
Dubose will
step down.
Dubose has
not yet decided whether he will finish the
season at the helm of the Crimson Tide.
Under Dubose, the Crimson Tide went
24-20 over four seasons. Alabama went
4-7 in his first year as coach and followed it
up with two straight winning seasons.
Last year, the Crimson Tide went 10-3,
won an SEC title and earned a spot in the
Orange Bowl.
This season the Tide entered at No. 3,
then followed it up by stumbling to a 1 -3
record and falling out of the Top 25.
Alabama lost to Southern Miss 21 -0
and Central Florida 40-38 in Tuscaloosa
this season. They lost all three of their out-
of-conference games this season for the
first time since 1955.
Durjose' contract ran through 2003. He
was named SEC coach of the year in 1999.
Clemens appeals fine
New York Yankees'
pitcher Roger Clemens will
appeal his $50,000 fine for
the bat-throwing incident
during the World Series.
Clemens received the
fine after he threw a
jagged broken-bat frag-
ment at New York Mets
catcher Mike Piazza during the first inning
of Game 2 of the World Series.
"It was a reckless type of action on his
part said Frank Robinson, Major League
Baseball director of player personnel.
Clemens is a five-time winner of the Cy
Young Award. Clemen's Yankees went on
to win the series 4-1.
Rose hopes to return
Indiana Pacers guard Jalen Rose prac-
ticed this week and may return to action as
soon as next week.
Rose suffered a broken left wrist during
an exhibition game last month. Rose was
named the NBA's most improved player in
1999 and was a key member of the Pacers
team that won the Eastern Conference last
season.
Charges dropped
against Casey
A Hudson County, N grand jury
decided not to indict Penn State quarter-
back in the July beating of an off duty
police officer in Hoboken, N
The jury did not find probable cause
to indict Casey on the assault charge but
is bringing charges against one of Casey's
companions.
The charges stem from an incident
where Casey and others allegedly beat up
off-duty police officer Patrick D. Fitzsim-
mons outside of a Hoboken club this
summer.
Pirates breeze past VCU
in final conference game
Kyle Barnes
STAFF WRITER
The ECU men's soccer team had lost
five consecutive games, with four of
them coming in conference match-ups,
until they met up with rivals Virginia
Commonwealth University. The Pirates
snapped out of their slump and finished
the conference season with a victory.
ECU failed to score in their confer-
ence game versus William & Mary, and
lost 1-0, on Oct. 23. This weekend,
the struggling Pirate team traveled to
Washington, D.C. to face conference
opponent, American Eagles on Oct. 28.
The ECU men have been on a serious
drought of late, finishing four straight
matches without a goal, this team was
desperate for any success they could find
on Saturday.
The first score would be made by the
American team, as they took the lead 1-0.
ECU would answer, and tie the game up
in the 65th minute on a flick-header by
senior Nick Erratto. This marked the end
to a scoreless drought for the pirates that
lasted over 425:00 and four games.
Just minutes after ECU tied the game,
American netted their second goal on a
shot by Kris Bertsch that put the Eagles in
the lead for good. American's constant,
offensive pressure broke down the Pirates
defense late in the second half as they
added another goal at the 80:26 minute,
making the score 3-1 and handing ECU
their fifth loss in the past five games.
On Nov. 1, ECU held their last confer-
ence match up at home against VCU.
The Pirates had a very productive game
on both ends of the field, and held VCU
scoreless all day. They beat VCU on both
ends of the ball, and captured the victory
and the shut-out.
The ECU men's soccer team defeated VCU 2-0 in their final CAA game. Senior Greg Hoffman scored the first goal off of a corner
kick in the first half, (staff photo)
"We were very sharp today and got
off to a very good start said Head Coach
Devin O'Neil. "Our guys competed really
hard, they went after second balls hard,
and were really flying today, and that
was the difference overall
Both of the Pirate goals came in the
first half, where ECU controlled the
tempo of the game, and created trouble
for VCU's defense all day. Senior Greg
Hoffman scored the third goal of his
career off of an assisted corner kick from
freshman Brian Deutsch.
"Its a great feeling to score in a game
like this one, and for it to come against
a team like this, who was nationally
ranked at the beginning of the season
is awesome said senior Greg Hoffman.
" I thought it gave the team a lift and
was a great way to start out the game
Hoffman added.
The second of ECU'S goals was scored
midway through the first half when
Michael I.ogan chipped a ball over the
defense to Clyde Simms who drove to
the net and banged it through for the
2-0 lead.
"I kind of saw it coming before it
happened said freshman Clyde Simms.
"Once I saw the ball in the air I noticed
it was going to Logan, he's a great player
in the air, I anticipated the pass, took the
shot and it went in Simms said.

Women's soccer wraps up season
ECU finish 3-5
in final season in CAA
Ryan Rockwell
STAFF WRITER
The women's soccer team finished the 2000
season with a 2-0 defeat to the George Mason Patriots
on Sunday. This loss lowers the team's overall record
to 10-7-2 and their conference record to 3-5.
Kim Sandhoff's three shots on goal broke her '99
season shot record of 59 shots on goal. Unfortunately
for the Pirates, none of the shots found the back
of the net and represented the only goal-scoring
chances that the team had all game.
GMU scored first on a Katy Robinson goal off
of a crossing pass from Angela Lombardi in the
31st minute.
Then the Patriots struck again at the 52nd minute
mark when Megan Hawkins added an insurance
goal off an assist from Jayme Beamer.
The shutout is the third of the season for ECU.
Goalkeeper Leigh Steigerwald continued her
strong defense making 5 saves on the day. However
the Pirate offense could not give her their usual
goal support.
"We had chances on offense, but just did not
capitalize said Head Coach Rob Uonnenwirth.
Senior co-captain Kim Sandhoff believes the
team gave a great effort.
"The rough field and the strong winds were huge
variables Sandhoff said concerning the match-up
with the higher ranked Patriots.
The GMU game is the Pirates final game this
season because of the University's move to Confer-
ence USA for next fall. Therefore, all ECU sports'
teams are not invited to CAA conference tourna-
ments.
Although, Donnenwirth does not feel that the
absence of post-season play affected his team's
motivation.
"I give the players a lot of credit Donnenwirth
said. "It was difficult not being allowed to play
in the post-seasonl, but they were ready to play
on game day
On a positive note, two ECU women's team
members were named to the CAA all-conference
second team.
For the fourth straight year, Sandhoff was named
to the all-conference team. Sandhoff has broken
every career and single-season offensive record
at ECU.
Sandhoff feels that others on the team were
just as deserving.
"Kelly Gray and Unicity Dittmer played unbeliev-
able Sandhoff said. "I think they say, 'we can only
give out two awards to that team
At the end of a celebrated career, Sandhoff
considers her senior season to be the most reward-
ing.
"This team has so much fun it's hard to turn
off once we get on the field Sandhoff said. This
season I have felt the most comfortable and have
enjoyed this year more than any other
Sandhoff ends a stellar career with 27 goals, 28
assists and 82 points in 71 games.

The ECU baseball team will not have to venture far
to compete in their first Conference-USA tournament.
Monday C-USA announced that ECU will be the host
school for the 2002 CAA Baseball Championships.
Kinston's Graniger Stadium will be the site of the
tournament which will feature the best of the then-12
baseball-playing members of C-USA.
"We are delighted to have an opportunity to host
this event said ECU Athletic Director Mike Hamrick.
This will be a great way to cap off our first year in C-USA
as an all-sports member

SENIOR WRITER
The ECU men's and
women's swim teams com-
peted in a dual meet
last weekend against CAA
power, James Madison, on
the road.
The men won the
meet in dominant fashion
taking 10 of 13 events
from the Dukes. The wom-
en's meet came down to
the final race with the
Pirates losing by less than
a second.
Both teams are off to
a great start with the men
at 3-0 after victories over
Davidson and College of
Charleston at home in
their first two meets.
The women are a
strong 2-1 after the loss.
The team is just getting
their feet wet with the
dual meets, but it looks
like both groups are at
the beginning of a strong
season.
"So far, I'm very
excited about the rest of
the season said Claes
Lindgren. "We've done
better than I thought we
would do. When we beat
JMU, that was the big
kicker. It was amazing
The men will have to
try and keep up the level
of intensity as they head
on the road for two meets
at Old Dominion and Wil-
liam & Mary respectively.
"I think we have a
good shot at going unde-
feated. The toughest team
we will be facing this
season is N.C. state, but
I think we will have a
chance to beat them said
Lindgren.
The women, who also
started off the season with
two straight wins, are
coming off of a champion-
ship run last year and had
a great showing against
James Madison. They are
confident going into the
rest of the season.
"We're swimming
really fast for it being the
beginning of the season,
faster than expected said
senior Tracy Ormond. "We
are still trying to get
back into shape after the
summer and we have a lot
of freshmen that have to
get used to dual meets
The match featured a
lot of great performances
on both sides of the team.
Amy Hendrick, who hit
the Olympic trials quali-
fying time in last years
CAA championship meet,
finished less than a second
off of this seasons NCAA
qualifying time.
"Probably the swim
of the day was freshman
Matt Walker" said Coach
Rick Kobe. "His time was

time. He also set the ECU

Kinston hosted the
CAA baseball tourna-

The Pirates won the
final tournament there
in 1999.
The 4,200 seat sta-

the Kinston Indians,
the Class-A affiliate of
the Cleveland Indians.
The stadium also hosted the 2(XK) Carolina League-
California League All-Star Game.
"We are extremely exited to co-host the 2002 C-USA
baseball tournament with ECU said North Johnson,
general manager of the Kinston Indians. "It is a rarity to
be awarded a tournament in the first year of conference
eligibility. We believe it is a testament to ECU's program
and our reputation for hosting tournaments
ECU won last season's CAA tournament in Manteo
in June. The title marked the team's final tournament
as a member of the CAA.
The C-USA tournament takes only the top eight
teams in the conference.
"Conference USA is a great league with three or
four teams having the opportunity to be ranked among
the top 25 in the nation year-in and year-out said
ECU Head Baseball Coach Keith l.eClair. "This league
has some of the top teams in the country. The eight
teams that make the tournament, which will hopefully
include us, make it one of the most competitive
conference tournaments in the country and will give
baseball fans in eastern North Carolina a chance to
see some of the greatest collegiate baseball anywhere
in the nation
Last season ECU won the CAA tournament when
it was held in Manteo, N.C. The CAA tournament
will be held in Manteo this season as well. The C-USA
tournament will be held in New Orleans.

Hokies trying to reason
with Hurricane season
AP-Virginia Tech quarterback Dave Meyer hopes to fare better in
Saturday's Hokies-Hurricanes game than Miami's Ken Dorsey did in
last year's matchup.
Dorsey, who replaced an injured Kenny Kelly in the second half of the
Hokies' 43-10 win in '99, was harassed nearly every play. He was sacked
twice, intercepted once and hit just 6 of 17 passes for 45 yards.
"I was overwhelmed and my head was spinning Dorsey said.
Meyer, a fifth-year senior, starts for the injured Michael Vick when
No. 2 Virginia Tech (8-0, 6-0 Big East) visits No. 3 Miami (6-1, 3-0) in a
national title elimination game at the sold out Orange Bowl.
"I'm ready said Meyer, who led the Hokies on the field-goal drive
that produced a 37-34 win over Pittsburgh last week. "From week to week,
I prepare to start, whether I'm the backup or starter
Vick, among the Heisman Trophy favorites, has a sprained right
ankle but coach Frank Beamer hasn't counted out his star. Vick will be
fitted with a special ankle brace and may play. Miami coach Butch Davis
expects to see Vick, Vick, and more Vick.
"He's not hurt Davis said earlier this week. "If you think he's hurt,
you're kidding yourself
He's hurt for sure, but how seriously remains to be seen.
Against the Panthers, Meyer was 7 of 13 for 114 yards, his last three
completions going for 12, 11 and 11 yards to set up Carter Warley's
game-winning 27-yard field goal with 16 seconds left.
"He's tall, he's athletic. He can throw the football. He's smart Beamer
said of Meyer. "I think it's obvious he's not quite as quick as Michael. He
doesn't throw the ball quite as quick. His release is not like Michael's and
he probably doesn't throw quite as far as Michael
Vick, with 1,023 yards and seven TDs passing and 584 yards and eight
TDs rushing, isn't the only star fighting off an injury. Hokies top receiver
Andre Davis-23 catches for 318 yards and two TDs as well as three punt
returns for scores has bursitis in his left foot.
CAA from 6
make the all-conference team since
Sandhoff. Nixon was key on a
young defense that started three
freshmen and one sophomore.
Donnenwirth is proud of his
young and effective defense this
season and his entire team.
"We had a good season Don-
nenwirth said . "The seniors played
hard, the freshmen matured, and
we have a bright future
Sandhoff is also proud of her
team's season.
"We came out and we showed
we can play against anybody she
said.
Looking forward to next season,
Donnenwirth has mixed feelings.
"The future looks great but
our four seniors will be tough to
replace Donnenwirth said.
That appears to be a safe
assessment considering the youth
of the team and the departure
of co-captains Sandhoff, Charity
McClure, I-eanne Mclnnis and
Angela Baroni.
Coming off another successful
season, the Pirates are gearing up
for next year's C-USA debut.

Super Bowl sites announced
ATLANTA (AP)�Jacksonville's ship came in Wednesday.
With the help of some shipping companies who will bring in
10 cruise ships to help provide rooms, NFL owners voted to bring
the Super Bowl to north Florida for the first time.
Jacksonville beat out Miami, which has played host to eight
Super Bowls, in a closely contested race for the 2005 game.
As expected, the owners gave the 2004 Super Bowl to Houston
and the 2006 game to Detroit, rewarding both dries for building
new stadiums. Neither had opposition.
That wasn't the case for Jacksonville, which required four
ballots to become one of the smallest metropolitan areas to land
the biggest one-day event in American sports.
"This raises us to a first-tier city said Wayne Weaver, owner
of the Jaguars.
Jacksonville, with a metro population just over 1 million,
earned its first Super Bowl even though the NFL had serious
concerns about a lack of hotel space and airline flights.
The city will dock at least 10 cruise ships near Alltel Stadium
on the St. John's River, adding about 8,000 rooms to its downtown
hotel capacity. Sydney used a similar tactic during the Olympics.
"I think the membership bought into that Weaver said.
"We're going to give them a different and unique experience
Also, three airlines agreed to triple flights to Jacksonville
during the Super Bowl week, ensuring fans will be able to get
in and out of the city.
"There was a sentiment for diversity, a change of scenery
said Art Modell, owner of the Baltimore Ravens. "Miami will
always be a part of the Super Bowl rotation, but Jacksonville
deserved it
Miami brought a delegation that included former Dolphins
coach Don Shula and ex-quarterback Dan Marino.
Oakland also bid for the 2005 game but was given little
chance because of its feud with Raiders owner Al Davis. The
California city, seeking its first Super Bowl, was eliminated on
the second ballot.
Detroit's delegation was led by Mayor Dennis Archer and
racing team owner Roger Penske.
"Fortunately, a lot of the owners knew Roger Penske personally
Archer said. "That was a nice touch
SOCCER from 6
strong play in the second half and
held the VCU Rams scoreless for
the shutout, and the win.
"We had some really tough,
competitive practices this week
and I think that all of that carried
over into the game Hoffman said.
"That old saying you practice how
you play held up today for us, we
were really competitive on balls
in the air, got in on the second
balls really hard, and made some
tackles, and it was really the key
that determined the outcome of
the game Hoffman added.
The men's soccer team con-
cludes their season on Nov.lO, as
they host the Virginia Tech Hoakies
at 2 p.m. at Bunting Field.
