Students raise money for AIDS awareness
National memorial quilt panels
to be displayed this month
Emily Little
FOUNTAINHEAD EDITOR
Hour panels from the AIDS Memorial Quilt will
be coming to campus this month as part of AIDS
Awareness Week.
The complete quilt is made up of smaller panels
each made by friends and family of AIDS victims. The
quilt was started in San Francisco, Cali. in 1987 and has
since grown to the size of over 47 football fields.
"They wanted to construct a memorial for people
who died of AIDS said Ernest Daily, historian for
Allied Blacks for Leadership Equality (ABLE).
Over the summer Daily came up with the idea of
bringing the panels to ECU after reading that over 63
percent of AIDS victims Iwrween the ages of 13 and 24
are African-American even though they only constitute
13 percent of the United States population.
He decided to write letters asking each campus
student organization for a donation of $50 to help
cover the total cost of $535 for the four panels.
Fletcher Hall was one of only two organizations
to contribute.
"I sent over 216 letters and only one person
responded Daily said.
"I just took it upon myself to raise at least $50 to
get the AIDS Quilt here said Patrice Jones, Fletcher
Hall Council treasurer. During Homecoming week she
initiated a spirit link contest in her hall. For the contest,
students attempted to make their floor's paper chain
the longest by buying the most links. Jones said her
high school use to raise money in this fashion.
"I'm happy for Fletcher Hall, but I'm not happy that
we're the only hall to raise money she said.
Fletcher raised $176 in all.
"Some organizations I know were just probably
being lazy Daily said. "Some didn't have the money.
Some just forgot
Beth Credle, director of health education and
promotion at Student Health Services (SHS) and co-
chair for SHS's committee for AIDS Awareness Week,
is disappointed in the lack of interest from student
organizations.
"HIV is not in the media like it used to be so
people think it's gone away Credle said. "It hasn't
gone away
The number of HIV cases in Pitt County ranks close
to that of Mecklenburg and Wake counties, two of
the most populated counties in North Carolina. This
is because all HIV patients who receive treatment at
Pitt County Memorial Hospital are included in Pitt's
statistics, according to Credle.
ABLE agreed to pay the application fee of $150, and
Student Government Association (SGA) Chief of Staff
Patrice Jones, Fletcher Hall Council treasurer,
helped raise $176 by organizing a spirit link
program in her residence hall.
Ernest Daily, Allied Blacks for Leadership
Equality historian, sent letters to every
campus organization asking for donations
to help bring four panels of (he AIDS
Memorial Quilt to ECU. Only two organizarions
responded.
Michael Aho made a personal donation
of $100. Black Student Union has agreed
to pay the remaining $109.
"I threw a little money that way to
help Aho said. "Even $25 for this type
of thing would help
The panels are to be displayed at
6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 29 in Men-
denhall Student Center. Daily hopes the
presentation of the panels will include
speeches by the Chancellor Richard Eakin
and the mayor of Greenville. The sponsors will be
on-hand to take donations of new panels to add to
the AIDS Quilt.
"Hopefully it will be bigger next year Daily said.
"I think it puts a bit of personable approach to
AIDS Aho said. "Kind of in the real world, real
person sense
AIDS Awareness Week is Nov. 27-Dec. 1. Several
booths and presentations, including a step dance and a
theatrical presentation, will be on campus.
This writer con be contacted at fountainhead@tec.ecu.edu.
The AIDS Memorial Quilt is made up of 44,000 colorful
panels memorializing the life of a person who lost their life to
AIDS. Each panel, measuring 12 feet by 12 feet, is available
for schools, organizations and individuals around the world
to display in exchange for a donation, (top photos by John

Florida manual
vote recounts
MIAMI, Florida
(CNN)-Vice President Al
Gore's legal team in Flor-
ida moved into state court
Monday to block Florida's
secretary of state from
ending the vote certifi-
cation process Tuesday
afternoon.
Volusia County, one
of four Florida counties
seeking to recount ballots
by hand, filed suit this
morning to extend the
Tuesday deadline, which
Florida Secretary of State
�Catherine Harris said she
would uphold based on
the requirements of Flor-
ida election laws.
Harris' early morning
announcement appeared
to lay the groundwork
for resolving Florida's dis-
puted election by Satur-
day-provided all pending
courtroom challenges fail
or are withdrawn. If state
election law is followed,
Tuesday's certification will
be followed by a Satur-
day deadline for count-
ing absentee ballots, and
Florida then would issue
a final vote count.
Each man needs only
Florida's electoral votes to
win the White House.
The Gore campaign
joined Volusia's court
challenge Monday after-
noon, and representatives
of Republican presiden-
pher, appearing before
reporters in Tallahassee,
the state capital, said the
Gore camp had hoped to
avoid court action, but
now felt it had no other
choice.
"The Florida secretary
Each man needs only Florida's electoral votes to
win the White House.
tial candidate George W.
Bush's legal team entered
the case on Harris' side.
Palm Beach County,
the center of the debate
over Florida's ballots,
also joined the Volusia
County suit Monday after-
noon. Palm Beach officials
hoped to begin their own
manual recount Tuesday
morning.
Former U.S. Secretary
of State Warren Christo-
of state has compelled
us to appeal to the courts
ourselves said Christo-
pher, who is overseeing
the Florida recount on
Gore's behalf. "We intend
to seek a court order not
to deny the counting of
votes, but rather to allow
lawful counting to go to
its full completion
A short time later.
Gore made a rare post-
election appearance to
urge patience with the
Florida process. While he
did not mention the diz-
zying array of legal devel-
opments in the Sunshine
State, he did say he hoped
the democratic process
would be allowed to move
forward without obstruc-
tion.
"That is what I am
focused on Gore said.
"Not the contest, but our
democracy. I would not
want to win the presi-
dency by a few votes cast
in error or misinterpreted
or miscounted, and I don't
think Governor Bush does
either
Gore's team of law-
yers upped the ante in
the disputed state a short
time after a federal judge
in Miami ruled against
a request by Bush's presi-
dential campaign to end
manual vote recounts in
four Florida counties.
U.S. District Judge
Donald Middlebrooks
issued his ruling early
Monday afternoon. Bush's
legal team is now likely
to appeal the decision to
the 11th Circuit Court of
Appeals in Atlanta.
Bush's legal team filed
a weekend motion seek-
ing a halt to any manual
recounts on the grounds

that they are less reliable than
automated counts.
We understand what the court
did said Theodore Olson, an
attorney for the Bush campaign.
"We appreciate the fact that the
judge listened. He thought it was
something that would be pursued
by a higher court
Olson hinted that the campaign
may appeal the ruling.
Laurence Tribe, the attorney for
Vice President Al Gore's campaign,
described Middlebrooks' ruling as
"fairly normal and standard
"It's important because the
president of the United States turns
on this Tribe said. "But we didn't
make any new law today
With a possible Republican
appeal pending and with the Volu-
sia court action still unresolved,
it was unclear how Middlebrooks'
ruling would affect the ongoing
recounts.
Palm Beach County wants to
begin what is estimated to be a
six-day manual recount on Tues-
day, meaning it has no chance of
making the certification deadline
if it pursues a manual recount.
But Michael McDermott, Volusla
County's canvassing committee
chairman, said his county was
making tremendous progress on
its recount.
"I think it is reasonable to
assume we could have a definitive
recertification of all the ballots by
midday tomorrow McDermott
said.
"If we are able to certify before
the statutory deadline, we would
dismiss our lawsuit he said.

That's why the AIDS
Quilt is so important.
It reminds us that the
epidemic still rages. It
serves as a tangible
reminder of people
who died and are still
dying because no one
knows how to cure
them.
People seem to have forgotten about AIDS. For the longest time it was all
anyone talked about, every fancy gown at the Oscars was decorated with a
little red ribbon, and the nightly news regularly lead with a story about a new
drug to treat HIV. It was the next great epidemic of our time.
But then we lived through it, and we found out how to avoid gelling il,
and we put it in the back of our minds until that sudden morning-after fear
that dissipates with a visit to the doctor.
That's why the AIDS Quilt is so important It reminds us that the epidemic
still rages. It serves as a tangible reminder of people who died and are
still dying because no one knows how to cure them. Everyone should see
the panels when they come to our campus, if for no other reason than
as a reminder to be careful.
Maybe next year more than two student organizations will think it
worthwhile to contribute. Maybe people will start to care again about a
disease that we once feared was an updated version of the Black Plague.
Maybe we will all mourn a little for those who wasted away in hospital beds
as doctors stood at a loss for what to do. Maybe we will forget the stigma
too many people associate with the disease.
We can all learn a lesson from Michael Aho, Student Government
Association's chief of staff. While over 200 student organizations on this
campus ignored, for whatever reason, the request for donations, Aho gave
$100 of his own money.
Or Fletcher Hall, who actually made the AIDS Quilt a week-long fund-
raising project. Or Earnest Daily, member of Allied Black for Leadership
Equality (ABLE), who thought up the idea. It has taken him months of
solid work to bring us this remind of lost life. We should all hope to
be so unselfish.
But even if we have no money and no time, we at least have our
ability to remember. When this quilt comes we should pass through
Mendenhall Studnet Center and think about something other than ourselves
for a while.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Better solutions for crime
prevention
Dear Editor,
Campus security officers refused
to escort me to my car Monday,
Oct. 30, even though it was pitch
black and there have been recent
incidents of assault on women in
this neighborhood.
The officer on the phone said
they offered escort service to the
edge of campus only and anything
off campus is out of campus security
jurisdiction. He offered no alterna-
tives.
Rape is a crime preventable by
awareness. I would suggest your
department broaden its thinking
regarding prevention. You must
work around your jurisdiction
limitations. In this case, perhaps
volunteer male students could
provide an escort off campus.
Ignoring the problem makes
the university liable for civil suits
and your conscience liable for the
responsibility of a preventable
crime.
I am forwarding this to others
who share this responsibility in the
hopes they can help you to better
this situation.
Wanda LaMontagne
University of Cincinati, (IMS
Campus)-I am a racist. Until a
few weeks ago, I thought I was
beyond that disgusting sense of
ethnocenlrisni that enables the
separatism of our human race by
the color of skin.
It turns out I was wrong.
A friend and I were speaking
with our server at a restaurant
about its reputation of a less-than-
dean dining area. This server was
as friendly as she could be, and
freely admitted to the validity
of the reputation. She tried to
displace the blame and said the
staff "just couldn't keep up" with
the clientele. I thought she meant
rowdy teen-agers until she lowered
her eyes and said with a smile,
"And it's not just the blacks, either.
It's the punk-rockers, too
After lifting my jaw from the
table, 1 ignored the server and sat
stunned for a minute. Certainly,
this was not the first time someone
made a racist remark in my pres-
ence, but this time something was
different. My friend squinted his
eyes, raised his eyebrow, dropped
his chin and tilted his head slightly
to the right: the universal look
when hearing something so incred-
ibly ignorant one must pause to
recover.
After a few moments for shock
comparison, my friend said, "Do
they think that just because I'm
white it's okay to say that to me?"
I was not sure which statement
stunned me more.
When people 1 know utter these
types of remarks, I argue with them,
but with strangers, I've always
ignored the situation, thinking that
by remaining silent I was actually
saying something. "Maybe I'm just
non-confrontational I thought. I
tried to convince myself I was right
not to say anything, that it was the
smart thing to do.
Then a few weeks later at an area
McDonald's, I realized my silence
was not a form of protest but tacit
consent. I was waiting for my order
when two white men placed a large
order. After five minutes of wait-
ing, the men started to become
annoyed. Soon, one of the men
peered behind the counter into the
kitchen. He saw a group of more
than 10 people standing around
with only one man working.
The guy mumbled under his
breath, looked at me and said,
"Look at all those brothers back
there watching that one brother
work My jaw didn't drop, and
I didn't ignore him as 1 normally
would have. Instead, I asked him
a simple question, "Do you think
because I'm white that I'm not
offended by your remarks?" The
man started to smile that awkward
kind of smile where you realize
you've made an idiot of yourself,
then he became flustered.
He demanded a refund, he said,
because he waited too long. His
friend said, "We'll just get our
money and go to the McDonald's
by your house
I felt an overwhelming sensa-
tion of relief as he left the store, but
I realized the true implications of
my actions when a teen-ager said
to me, "I've never heard a white
person stick up for us to another
one before
I realized those times when
I said nothing others may have
interpreted my silence as consent

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Unfair treatment for Alston's mistake
Dear Editor,
In regards to the opinion writ-
ten about Richard Alston, 1 really
and truly can not believe that this
person is so outraged because of
what he has done.
It's pretty obvious that she
should really know what she is
talking about before she puts some-
thing in the paper. Are you mad at
Richard because he refused to go
out with you or something? She
made the comment that if she did
it, who would bail her out? Well,
my dear, do you go to practice six
days a week for four to five hours
at a time, do you help bring in
millions to the University?
I am sure you do not, so in the
meantime, yes you are on your
own. Why must someone "hate
on" another because of the way his
particular situation is handled.
Don't you think it's ridicule
enough to have your picture on
the news for three nights straight,
making the front page of school
newspaper as well as the city paper.
And if that was you, I bet you would
not have been ridiculed as much
either. Why add fuel to the fire, just
mind your business.
Gwen Crisp
Office Assistant, Nursing
AUUoh A. Melia
IN MYOPINION
Stillvvater, Okla. (U-WIRE)-This
election has shown a few faults in
our system for electing a president.
The front pages of many of the
world's major newspapers, such as
the London limes, featured the
election of supposedly the most
democratic country on Earth.
We have often pressured other
countries to have proper and free
elections for president, even though
we have major flaws with our own
methods.
After the press prematurely
announced Bush as the winner of
the popular election, several world
leaders called to congratulate him.
Imagine how they felt after finding
he wasn't the winner at the time.
The Electoral College is respon-
sible for the election of our presi-
dent. Written into the Constitu-
tion, it was a form of compromise
between those framers who sup-
ported the Congress electing the
president and the people electing
the president.
Most of the framers didn't trust
the intelligence of the people (and
who could blame them, more than
half didn't support the American
Revolution), so they
begot the Electoral College.
The word "elector" is even syn-
onymous with non-democratic
systems. The Holy Roman Empire,
which at its peak owned Germany,
Austria, Spain and most of the
New World, elected the emperor
by various barons and other small
territorial rulers called electors.
How the electoral vote works is
fairly simple when illuminated to
the American populace, but most
people refuse to admit its truth.
I was involved in an argument
recently with an elder of mine
contending that the Electoral Col-
lege is what chooses our votes.
He sadly
refused to believe my genius.
The truth is, though, that the Elec-
toral College does decide who is
president. The head of each party
in the state appoints the electors
representing that party.
Then we, the voting people of
America, vote for the electors (by-
selecting the candidate we wish
would win the presidency) who in
turn, vote for the president.
The last president who won the
election and not the popular vote
was Benjamin Harrison in 1888.
Grover Cleveland beat him in the
popular vote with 5.54 million
votes as compared to 5.44 million.
The electoral vote was 168 votes
for Cleveland to 233 for Harrison.
Two other times prior to this it
happened as well.
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered
Cambridge, Mass. (U-WIRE)
-What's scarier than the kid who
wore a Scream mask to section on
Halloween? Granted, not much. But
accusations of witchcraft certainly
rank up there.
While such charges probably
evoke images of seventeenth-cen-
tury New England, incredibly, they
persist even today. The American
Civil Liberties Union of Oklahoma
filed a lawsuit Oct. 26 against Tulsa
school officials, claiming that they
violated a 15-year-old student's
civil rights when they suspended
her in December 1999 for allegedly
casting a spell on a teacher and
making him sick.
The eighth-grader, Brand! Black-
bear, practices Wlcca, a non-Chris-
tian religion which is predicated
upon nature and the seasons of
the year. In addition to suspending
her, her school also confiscated
her private journal and forbade
her from wearing or drawing any
Wiccan symbol in school.
In its lawsuit, the school main-
tains that Blackbear, who formerly
had a sterling record, has become
a pariah among her peers and has
fallen behind in her schoolwork as
a result of the allegations.
Brandi's father, Timothy Black-
bear, told the press that "it's hard
for me to believe that in the year
2000 I am walking into court to
defend my daughter against charges
of witchcraft brought by her own
school
Hard to believe? More like
absurd. Not only have Blackbear's
civil rights, particularly her right
to freedom of religion, been egre-
giously violated, but the case has
proven her school thoroughly
inept.
What is taught in middle-school
classrooms is certainly not all that
is learned there. Teachers and other
adults whose profession is guiding
these students should realize that
these years are also some of the
most important for self-discovery
and experimentation.
For most, these years are hellish
due to extreme Insecurity, and it
Is the role of teachers and parents
to guide and support these young
adults through these difficult times.
School officials certainly did not
need to exacerbate Blackbear's feel-
ings of isolation by alienating her
and encouraging her classmates to
follow suit.
Religious persecution is not
simply part of the typical teenage
angst that everyone has to deal
with. Hopefully Blackbear, who
has been described as a "sensitive
young woman will come out of
this ordeal relatively unscathed.
It is Important to note, in light
of this perversion of justice, that
"unusual" young people can and
do develop into functional adults.
Surely there are many students
here at our fine University who
had rocky early teen years, perhaps
thanks to a penchant for grunge
rock or even an unnatural affinity
for medieval literature.
A literal witch hunt to eliminate
uniqueness among youth would
only restrict the many innovations
their creativity has so often brought
to our society.
Kevin Jlaidif
Michigan (U-WIRE)-The polit-
ical pundits were left guessing
throughout Election Day as the
story of the next president unfolded.
The political buzz on campus was
much of the same.
The typical student voter
pressed a sticker with an American
Flag against his or her chest that
read "I voted asking, "I wonder
who will win?" to a friend exiting
another booth.
Everyone played a game of pick-
ing favorites, guessing states and
wondering if his or her vote made
a difference. Battleground states
had become war zones leaving both
Republican and Democratic parties
vying for every electoral vote.
If anyone learned anything
about American politics Tuesday
night, they were taught by the
Electoral College, which early on,
sided with Vice President Al Gore
while Texas Gov. George W. Bush
grabbed a majority of states.
IN MYOPINION
Fuzzy race was exciting
It was a game of political tennis
with little love and lots of fault
in predicting key states that only
added to a see-saw presidential
contest.
Bush had made an early surge as
he grabbed every state straight south
of North Dakota-states the Texas
governor was guaranteed.Gore
started closing the gap by picking
New York, Michigan, Illinois and
Pennsylvania.
Geographically it was what
analysts had been predicting-Bush
would be strong in the South, the
plains states and much of the West.
Gore would be the favorite in the
Northeast-the rest was a guess.
Battleground states like Michi-
gan and Ohio would go different
ways, keeping the contest impos-
sible to predict early on. Deemed
the closest presidential contest
since President John F. Kennedy
triumphed over President Richard
Nixon in 1960, Tuesday's presiden-
tial battle was exciting. It was
American politics at its best.
The founding fathers created a
country that could hold an election
with an American theme intact.
Americans have always been In
love with a close race, grassroots
politics and candidates fighting
for votes down to the last minute
before precincts started closing
their doors.
Earn the respect of the people
by working for their votes and
they'll respond with their support.
Gore grabbed Michigan only after
practically spending every other
day in October in the state-Bush
took Ohio.
As the final chapter is written
and candidates rest from a gruel-
ing electoral process, a story will
tell that hard work pays off for
candidates and not for political
strategists-as politics sometimes
can be fair game.

role in this presidential election
Maura Buck
rCATURCS EDITOR
In the wake of this presidential election, stu-
dents who voted for the first time are being
spoiled with a truly exciting election year.
As the world watches this unpreCede'nted struggle
for the Oval Office we also witness first I.ady Hillary
Rodham Clinton's election to office as Senate representa-
tive for New York.
TEC recently sat down with 17 ECU freshmen, all
undeclared majors, to find out their reaction to this
year's election.
TF.C: Did you ever imagine that you would take
part in a presidential election such as this?
Lisa Mailings: No, I really didn't. I remember the
election lour years ago and my mom went out to vote
that evening and by the time she got back, I already told
her that Clinton was president. It was really interesting
to stay up until I a.m. and still not know.
Will Epperson: I thought that this election was
really exciting because the whole time I thought liush
was going to blow Core) out of the water. But now it
shows that Core is in the lead a little bit, and we don't
know what will happen.
TEC: Were you happy with the candidates that
represented the two primary parties?
Ian Altschul: I think that it's become too business-
like. I chose the Green Party candidate, Ralph Nader,
because I think that if he had the money that the other
two had, I think that he would be right up there with
them as far as publicity.
TEC: Do you think that it's fair that the president is
chosen based upon electoral college votes as opposed
to the popular vote?
Mainly White: I don't think that it's fair because it
obviously doesn't represent what everyone wants. Our
country isn't all the way behind one candidate.
TF.C: Did you realize the impact that your personal
vote had before the election?
Mandy Brooks: I didn't realize it. I think that now
that people see that it does make a difference, they
may wish that they had taken part.
TF.C: Why did those who voted choose to vote?
Courtney Mangum: I have always known that I
would take part in every election that 1 could. I have
always felt like everyone should.
John English: I voted for the same reasons that she
did. It's (ust the way that my parents raised me.
Lisa Mailings: I took advantage of voting early
with an absentee ballot over Fall Break so I could
take part.
TEC: Why didn't you vote?
Will Epperson: I didn't vote and I hated that I
didn't vote but I didn't know what I had to.do to
actually do it.
TEC: Where do you, as college students, get most
of your information about the parties, candidates
or policies?
Terrell Shropshire: I learned a lot in class. We
watched the debates. We talked about the candidates'
policies and we read articles about them.
TEC: It seems like in this election, the candidates
made themselves very accessible to popular entertain-
ment. Do you feel this is something that is appropriate,
that is, for a presidential candidate to go on late-night
TV?
Jen Brown: It just seemed awkward to me. Maybe
they thought that that's what they needed to do to get
across to some people. 1 watched the shows and I could
honestly say I made a decision from the things I read
off the Internet and saw on the debates.

Alternative Spring Break educates students

HVUUUHSH)IIOH
Spring Break may be the furthest
thing from students' minds right now,
but November is the ideal time to get
organized for that week-long break in
March. One organization on campus
exists to supply an alternative to other
popular destinations.
Alternative Spring
Break (ASB) gives stu-
dents the opportunity
to use their Spring
Break to benefit soci-
ety. According to Jell
Novak, ASB coordina-
tor, students perform
short-term projects for
community agencies
and learn about issues
such as literacy, pov-
erty, racism, hunger,
homelessness and the
environment.
"The objectives of the program
are to involve college students in
community-based service projects
and to give students the opportunities
to learn about the problems faced by
members of communities with whom
they otherwise may have had little or
no direct contact Novak said.
The cost is $100, which covers
transportation and meals. In addition,
there are fund-raisers planned for the
months ahead to reduce the cost for
students. ASB is funded by University
Housing Services and Aramark, food
distributor for ECU Dining Services.
ECU first started the program two
years ago. Last year, three trips were
put together. A total of 36 students and
four advisers traveled to Atlanta, Ga
Washington, D.C. and Boca Raton, Ha.
This year, there will In; trips to Atlanta,
Washington, D.C, Nashville, I'enn. and
possibly Columbus, Ga.
According to Phil McDaniel, ASB
adviser, students in each location have a
different set of tasks.
While in Washington, D.C. or Atlanta,
students work with five
diverse organizations to
help the cities in various
ways. One day can be
spent assisting at a nursing
home while the next can
involve working along-
side homeless mothers and
children.
In Nashville, students
help construct handicap
accessibility ramps for
private homes. Last year
in Georgia ECU students
worked with students from other cam-
puses and Habitat for Humanity to
constnict low-income housing for those
who could not otherwise afford hous-
ing.
"When 1 was in college, I traveled
to Nashville as part of an Alternative
Spring Break program which is a big part
of why I am involved here Novak said.
"There is something truly special about
working with people for a common goal.
You realize how lucky you are while you
become close to others around you

ROUNDTABLE from page 5
Jen Brown: 1 think that If s turned into a personality race. I know that
when I saw Bush on "Oprah I just kept thinking, what a cool guy. He
was very open about his past and mistakes he's made and It just didn't
seem he was even running for president. Then there was Al Gore on
Rolling Stone, which I thought was just crazy.
TEC: Do you think issues from your past should be public knowledge,
as with Bush and his DW1 charge that recently became public record?
Josh 1 rout man: No, because everyone changes.
Mandy Brooks: 1 think that people make mistakes young and learn
from them and then you don't make them again. I don't think they
should be brought up.
TEC: What issues are most important to you as young people?
Will Epperson: The environment.

The English Department Multicultural Literature Program
Proudly Presents:
A READING BY CARYL PHILLIPS:
CROSSING CULTURAL BOUNDARIES
Caryl Phillips, a native of St. Kitts in the Eastern Caribbean, can only be described as one of the major prolific British
writers of his generation in the Literary Hall of Fame. He is best known as the renowned author of six novels, his most
popular being The Final Passage, and his most recent haunting best seller The Nature of Blood. He hails from Amherst
where he serves as writer in residence, and has been Henry R. Luce Professor of Migration and Social Order at Barnard
College, Columbia University in New York.
An honorary Oxford graduate, a prolific reviewer and essayist, Caryl Phillips is also the author of several plays, of scripts for
radio, television and currently the cinema. He is the editor of the Faber Caribbean Series, and his latest edition is The Right
Set, a tennis anthology released in June 1999. His other writing accomplishments include two book-length travel essays The
European Tribe (1987) and The Atlantic Sound (2000).
Among his most outstanding achievements for which he has received major awards, are six novels: The Final Passage (1985),
A State of Independence (1986), Higher Ground (1989). Cambridge (1991), Crossing the River (1993). and The Nature of Blood (1997L Each uniquely
crafted Literary masterpiece addresses a deep sense of moral responsibility to the history that has produced him and which has all too often either been silenced
partially represented. At the essence of his writing lies a deep understanding of the impact of exile on the culture and psyche of the West Indies, and to manifest
that Caribbean migration is in effect, a part of British history.

Mets out of
A Rod race
Monday the New York Mets
announced they are out of the bidding
for free agent shortstop Alex Rodriguez.
Rodriguez is considered to be the hot-
test free agent in baseball history with
a price tag that may reach over $200
million. The Mets claim that negotiations
broke down when Rodriguez and agent
Scott Boras began asking for perks that
surpassed those of Mets All-Stars Mike
Piazza, Al Leiter and Edgardo Alfonzo.

Pirates keep slim
title hopes alive
Stephen Schramm
SPORTS FDITOR
Late in the fourth
quarter of ECU'S 62-20
win over Houston, safety
John Williamson inter-
cepted a pass from Hous-
ton quarterback Bubba
Teague. With an open field
in front of him, William-
son returned the ball six
yards and took a knee,
avoiding an almost certain
score.
Williamson may have
figured that the 42-point
margin of victory the
Pirates would get would
be enough.
Saturday, ECU secured
a winning season, keeping
their slim conference title
hopes alive with a con-
vincing win over Hous-
ton.

points on the board said

The 62-point perfor-
mance by the Pirates
came following a tem-
pered opening by both
teams.
The two teams began
slowly. After five punts
and a blocked field goal,
the Pirates' kicker Keith
Stokes blew open the
game with a 59-yard punt
return.
"i caught it and my
thing is that I always want
to make-the first person

there, it's all on them.

With the Cougars still
smarting from the Stokes
return, the Pirate defense
held them to a punt.
Stokes was corralled on
the return, but on the first
play from scrimmage, Gar-
rard connected with wide
reciever Marcellus Harris
for a 69-yard touchdown
strike and the rout was
on.

Cross country
finishes strong at
NCAA regionals
Justin England earns
spot at national meet
Robert Bottoms
STAFF WRITER
Senior Justin England earned ECU's first ever
spot in the NCAA Cross Country National meet.
ECU finished 13th out of 28 competing teams
at the 10,000-meter meet, hosted by Furman
University in Greenville, S.C.
"This was the guys' highest finish said Head
Coach Len Klepack. "However, Justin England was
the highlight
England finished fourth overall with a time of
30:48 and set a milestone for ECU at the regional
level. He is also the first Pirate to ever earn a spot
in the National Championship.
"He made history running for ECU Klepack
said. "The talent level in the Southeast is one of
the best and we should feel excited. You're just
proud that you made it he said.
England finished 11 seconds behind Duke's
individual champion Terry Brennan, who won
with a time of 30:37. Duke's Sean Kelly finished
second and William & Mary's Ed Moran finished
third.
"It feels great knowing that I am the first to do
this for ECU England said.
"1 put in a lot of hard work over the past five
years and this just really feels great
England said that he plans to run better than
he did at the Regionals but, according to him, he
has already won.
"I'm just honored to be there England said.
England will next compete in Ames, Iowa at the
NCAA Championship on Monday, Nov. 20.
Also for the Pirates, senior Stu Will finished
second on the team and 41st overall with a time of
32:14. Senior Steve Arnold was 86th overall with
a time of 33:29 and fellow senior J.D. Sullivan
was 106th in 34:08. Sophomore Craig Littlefield
was 124th in 34:42 and freshman Ryan Strohl
finished in 34:55.
Klepack did see room for improvement.
" 1 think there needs to be mote summer mileage
for next year and being better prepared could
definitely build up our confidence he said.
He went on to say that the men's team will be
losing a lot of seniors, including England, next
year and that the main point for them will be the
same as for the women's team.
"We need a better base coming in he said.
Junior Abrial Hayes and sophomore Kay Livick
led the ECU women's cross country team to a
20th place finish out of 26 teams at the NCAA
Regionals.
Livick, who has led the team in seven of eight
races this season, placed 89th out of 188 runners
in the 6,000-meter course with an overall time of
24:06 to lead ECU.
Abial Hayes finished second on the team with
an overall time of 24:22 and placed 103rd overaJL
"We did ok Hayes said. "We're very young
and building up. Personally, I did alright. I just
need to train a little bit harder
"The women's team did better than last year
Klepack said. "Abby and Kay ran very well and this
team as a whole is young and aggressive. Although
they have been improving, the one thing that
they could improve on the most is to have a better
base coming in

Mikulas leads Pirates past California All-Stars
Pirates notch
first exhibition win 87-83
Ryan Rockwell
STAFF WRITER
ECU beat all odds in Friday's exhibition matchup
with the California Midwest All-Stars, upsetting them
with a score of 87-83.
The Pirates overcame a 15-point deficit with just
eight minutes remaining in the contest. ECU took their
first second-half lead on a Travis Holcomb-Faye drive
with just 45 seconds remaining.
After a high energy first half the Pirates led 45-43.
Neither team shot the ball particularly well in either
half. However, the fast pace of the game allowed for
easy transition buckets at both ends.
ECU Head Coach Bill Herion says the team is look-
ing to push the ball more and get points in transition, a
dramatic change from previous men's teams.
The All-Stars dominated the first 12 minutes of the
second half, however, turning ECU'S 20 turnovers into
easy opportunities at the other end.
However, the All-Stars did not help themselves
either, committing 21 turnovers and losing their scoring
touch in the last two and a half minutes of the contest.
California did not score during this period.
Despite only shooting 36 percent from the field for
the game, ECU proved to be the more physical team
going to the charity stripe 30 times and making 26 of
them. Freshman guard Jimmy Bishop went a perfect
10-10 from the foul line.
The undersized Pirates got a slight advantage on
the backboards, out rebounding the older and bigger
All-Stars 50-46, including 16 boards from 6'5 swingman
Vinston Sharpe.
The performances of Bishop (19 points) and Sharpe
(12 points) loom especially large considering they were
inserted into the starting line-up in place of the injured
Kenyatta Brown and Erroyl Bing, respectively.
Other leaders for the Pirates were sophomore point
guard Travis Holcomb-Faye, junior guard Fred Primus
and freshman center Gabriel Mikulas. The Pirates put
five men in double figures.

Women's basketball team wins exhibition against Lithuania
Canady leads Pirates

"We played a little bit scared. I don't know why, but

STAFF WRITER
The ECU women's basketball team
wrapped up the seasons first win with
a business-like 79-63 win over I.KKA
Lithuania in an exhibition Friday at
Williams Arena in Minges Coliseum.
The Pirates got off to a slow
start against the winless Lithuanians.
ECU trailed
throughout
the first
half, finally
going in at
the second
half tied at 35. During the first half,
the Pirates struggled on both ends of
the floor. ECU shot 33.3 percent from
the floor, while the Lithuanians con-
nected on 58.3 percent of their field goal
attempts.

and weren't ready said senior forward
Roc Canady. "I guess we were waiting

The
Pirates
opened the
second half
at a blistering pace, going on a 20-4 run,
sparked by Canady's three point shoot-
ing. Canady would finish with a game
high 25 points on 10 of 14 shooting.
"We had a lot more intensity in the
second half said sophomore guard Tali
Robich. "We had to get our pregame
jitters out of the way
Robich, who finished 10 points and
10 rebounds, and senior forward Tamil la
Murray were at the forefront of a suf-
focating Pirates press that at one point,
forced seven consecutive turnovers from
the Lithuanians.
Murray would finish with 14 points
and a team high of four steals. The Pirates
second half domination was a total team
effort. The Pirates outclassed the visitors
in every aspect of the game.
ECU followed up a slim 20-19 first
half rebounding edge with a command-
ing 22-10 advantage on the glass in the
