Today, thousands of college smokers around the
United States will abstain from lighting up.
The 24th Annual Great American Smokeout,
nationally recognized and sponsored by the American
Cancer Society (ACS), is a chance for individuals
around the country to give up smoking for a day. The
ACS's goal is for all smokers to eventually kick the
habit permanently.
According to the ACS, more people quit smoking
on the day of the Smokeout than any other day of the
year, including New Year's Day.
"Often times people realize if they can give up
cigarettes for a day, maybe they can quit for good
said Beth Credle, director of health and promotions at
Student Health Services (SHS).
At ECU, SHS is doing its part to promote the
Smokeout by offering information tables and quit
smoking kits all day today at the Student Recreation
Center, Todd Dining Hall, the Wright I'lace and SHS.
Free sign-ups for Fresh Start Smoking Cessation
Classes will also be offered. These classes, which are free
to all faculty, staff, students and community members,
give smokers who want to quit a chance to understand
the psychological reasons behind their addiction as
well as emotional support from their peers.

More Americans quit smoking on the day of the Smokeout
than on any other day of the year, according to the American
Cancer Society.
"The classes) are more to help people counter the
psychological addiction and they're usually pretty
effective because the classes offer social support for
other people who are trying to quit Credle said.
The Fresh Start classes also give a few select
students an opportunity to help other students quit
smoking. Nine sorority and fraternity leaders from
1'heta Chi, I'ao Kappa Epsilon, Kappa Delta and Chi
Omega have trained to become Fresh Start counselors.
They will return to their respective organizations and
impart what they learned.
"So far, 34 individuals have gone through the
class and have reduced their smoking said Julie
Denning, health educator at SHS.
SHS has also issued The Great Greek Challenge
to all fraternities and sororities. The fraternities and
sororities with the most number of people to quit
smoking wiJI win $500 in cash for their organization
or a donation to a preferred cause.
"We test them with a carbon monoxide detector
beforehand to see if they really are smokers and then
we test them to see if they really did quit after
Credle said.
The winner of The Great Greek Challenge will be
announced at 5:30 p.m. tonight in the Multi-purpose
Room in Mendenhall Student Center. All are invited to
attend. For more information on Fresh Start Cessation
Classes, contact Beth Credle at 328-6794.
This writer can be contacted at editon9tececu.edu.

� Do not smoke
� Get rid of all cigarettes, lighters, ashtrays, etc.
� Keep active-try walking, exercising, or doing
other activities or hobbies
� Drink lots of water and juices
� Begin using the patch or gum if that is your
choice
� Attend stop smoking class or follow a self-help
plan

The Student Government Association (SGA)
legislature meet to discuss proposed increase in
student fees for the 2001-02 fiscal year Monday,
Nov. 13.
Each campus organization fills out a fee request
form for the next year's budget. Requests that differ
from last year are compiled. The proposal for the
change is then put before the SGA. The SGA has
the option to accept the budget request as is or to
change it. The original proposal along with the
SGA's proposal are then sent to the ECU Board of
Trustees for final approval.
The University of North Carolina (UNC) system
prefers student fees not to increase more than 5
percent each year. The approved budget for the
2000-01 fiscal year was $1,062.
The SGA proposes a total increase of $51 per
student, a total of $1,113, was approved by the
legislature to help with the up-keep and expansion
of eight campus organizations. These increase
include:
Admit and Commuter Student Service
(ACSC) SO to $6
ACSC is originally a State funded program.
The program has grown to serve approximately
4,400 students. Funding by the State is no longer
sufficiently. An increase of $6 was approved to support
programs such:
� orientation sessions
� programs for freshman commuters
� workshops for students wishing to move
off campus
� resource information of day care, transit, city and
county support services
� Peer Helper Program
� maintaining Web sites and list-serv services
� maintaining various publications
Athletic department
$259 to $269
The athletic department will receive a $10 increase
for the funding of inflationary increases for salary
benefits, travel, scholarships and equipment. The will
also receive funds for capital renewal.
Education and Technology fee
$82.50 to $90.90
ECU'S Education and Technology fee for the 2000-01
fiscal year is second lowest in the UNC system. A $8
increase would be used to:
� purchase software to protect against malicious
viruses
� File storage space for students with Web access
� Partially fund dedi-
cated help desk support for
students, which consists of
about 14 percent of the Help
Desk service activities

$GAHrtu
This was an interesting week
for SGA, as new strides were made
in the procedure surrounding
SGA and student fees.
At Monday's legislature meet-
ing, two hours were spent dis-
cussing the "prices" of student
fees for fiscal year 2001-02. This
year, after the idea of former
SGA president Cliff Webster,
we met with individual depart-
ments requesting fees prior to the
legislature meeting. In this way,
we could sort out differences
before bringing the package to
the entire legislative body.
The University of North Caro-
lina (UNC) system prefers that
student fees not be increased
more than 5 percent each year.
Anything under that amount is
considered okay. This year's fee
increase package was kept right
at the 5 percent mark and was
considered to be a very good
package Monday.
In trying to consolidate stu-
dent fee monies, Chuck Hawkins
(Financial Services), who was
in charge of the discussion, pro-
posed that the Student Fund
Accounting Office be eliminated
and the services be moved to
other departments in Menden-
hall Student Center (MSC). This
change brought a $3 decrease to
student fees.
MSC proposed a $5 fee
increase, which was approved.
The $91,000 arising from this
increase will be used for basic
Michael C. Aho
SGA CHIEF OF STAFF
operational increases from infla-
tion and additional building use,
upgrading the Great Rooms, and
upgrading air conditioning and
controls.
Adult and
Commuter Stu-
dent Services
(ACSS), a pro-
gram originally
funded by State
appropriations,
needed more
funding for this
year's budget
request. Shelly
Myers, ACSS
director, brought
a $6 increase
proposal, which was approved
Monday.
The office will use the $109,000
for orientation sessions, support
programs for freshmen commuters,
workshops for student wishing
to move off-campus, peer helper
program, resource information on
day care and the like, maintaining
a new Web site and list serv, and
maintaining various publications.
The l.edonia Wright Cultural
Center, represented by Director
Nell Lewis, proposed a $2 increase.
The Division ofStudent Life budget
meeting produced this figure, as
well as the student led committee,
which met prior to Monday, and
all parties agreed to the dollar
amount. However, in the legislature
meeting, Marcus Frederick gover-
nor of the Black Student Union,
proposed that the figure be
changed to a $5 increase, and
this motion passed. In the only
heated contest of the meeting,
the Cultural Center will now have
approximately $90,000 with which
to work from student fees. The
Center caters to all minority stu-
dents and also welcomes all stu-
dents.
The Student Union Program
Board brought a $6 increase pro-
posal to the table, which passed
through the legislature. Student
Union President Adam Mitchell
helped present the Board's proposal
and explained the $109,000 would
be used in bringing big name bands
to ECU.
A $10 increase was proposed
and approved by the athletics
department and athletic depart-
ment Director Mike Hamrick. The
money will be used for inflation and
tuition increases, as the department
pays approximately 400 students'
tuition-and if tuition goes up, so
must the scholarship. Part of the
money will also be set aside for
capital renewal as a bank of
money in case something is in need
or repair.
As our Student Health Service
improves its facilities and staff, its
budget is in need of some help
as well. So, a $6 increase was pro-
posed and passed. The money will
effectively be used to meet the
needs of inflation and expansion,
extend service hours, fill new staff
positions, and expand the phar-
macy.
An $8 Educational and Tech-
nology Fee increase was proposed
and passed, allowing $146,000
of money to be used for software
which will protect the student
computer system against viruses,
idrive.com Internet storage space
for each student and a student-
only help desk for computer
problems.
Finally, an $8 Transit Fee
increase was proposed and passed
near the end of the meeting.
Since the Transit system began
in SGA and is run by students, it
is important for SGA to continue
to support the department. The
money will be used to help fund
new buses, but even still, will not
cover the costs of the program.
Across the board, ECU ranks
quite well throughout UNC-
system fees. We are number 9
in student activity fees, number
9 in athletic fees, number 8 in
student health fees, number 12 in
educational and technology fees
and number 4 in debt service.
SGA is committed to keeping
student fees low, but also realizes
the need for slight increases.
On another note, congratula-
tions to Chi Phi Fraternity for
the acceptance of its constitution
by the legislature. Also, nine new
legislators were sworn in. We still
have seats, so stop by Room 255
in MSC or call 328-4726.
Flu vaccine now available for high-risk individuals
A flu vaccine is available at Student Health Services now until Nov. 27
for high risk individuals only, due to a shortage of the vaccine. After Nov.
27, the vaccine will be available to all students, faculty and staff.
According to the Center for Disease Control, persons at high risk
for the flu are:
�Persons aged 65 years and older;
�Residents of nursing homes and other chronic-care facilities with
residents of any'age who have chronic medical conditions;
�Adults and children aged 6 months and older who have chronic
pulmonary or cardiovascular disease, including asthma;
�Adults and children aged 6 months and older who have required
regular medical follow-up or hospitalization during the past year because
of chronic metabolic diseases;
�Children and teenagers (aged 6 months to 18 years) who are
receiving long-term aspirin therapy and therefore might be at risk for
developing Reye Syndrome after influenza infection;
�Women who will be in the second or third trimester of pregnancy
during the influenza season.
For cost information, contact Beth Credle at Student Health Services
at 328-6794.

ASSAULTS from page 1
According to police reports,
Matthew told police he had been
punched in the face by a Black
male. After he fell, Matthew said
two Black males standing across
the street came over and demanded
money from him. Matthew gave
the suspects his wallet and they
left the area.
Matthew suffered a broken leg
from the incident, however, he did
not know if the break resulted from
falling, or if he was kicked by the
suspect(s).
The police are warning students
to stay away from unlit areas at
night and to walk in groups.
"If young people are in the
downtown areas and visiting the
bars, they may be more vulnerable
said Melissa Bartlett, GPD public
affairs coordinator. "If at all pos-
sible, do not walk alone or at least
make someone aware where you
are going when you leave
Bartlett said if students find
themselves in any situation such as
these, to comply with the perpetra-
tor fully, considering he or she may
be under the influence of drugs and
more likely to be aggressive.
Ellington and Matthew could
not be reached for comment.
The GPD Is continuing its inves-
tigation into these incidents, how-
ever, no clear description of the
suspects is available.
Anyone with additional infor-
mation is encouraged to contact
the Greenville Police Department
at 329-4315. Information can also
be given anonymously through
the Greenville Crime Stoppers at
758-7777.

OUR VIEW
It is nice to know
that one campus
organization is
looking out for the
safety of the stu-
dents, faculty and
staff, as well as the
Greenville community
Will today be the day that you put that cigarette out for good?
Today is the 24th Annual Great American Smokeout sponsored by the
American Cancer Society, and many Americans will make their first step
toward quitting today.
With the stress of exams looming in the air, many of us turn to nicotine.
Although this may not be the healthiest choice, we at "TEC" believe that
smoking is a personal choice. While we know that not all students wish to kick
the habit, the ones that do can always use a helping-hand.
To those who wish to break their addiction, we suggest attending the Student
Health Services (SHS) Fresh Start Smoking Cessation Classes. These free classes
offer the psychology behind smoking addiction and why it is hard for many so
many Americans, college students included, to stop smoking.
The class is structured as a support group so that those individuals will
have someone to talk to that is in the same boat as they are. It is nice to
know that one campus organization is looking out for the safety of the
students, faculty and staff, as well as the Greenville community. Their initiative
should be applauded.
We also encourage potential quitters to take advantage of the information
and smoking cessation kits SHS will be offering today around campus.
We would like to thank SHS for their attempt at making this university a bit
healthier. We feel that it is important for smokers who want to quit to understand
why smoking is such an addictive habit. Hopefully with this understanding they
will be more prone to stay away from cigarettes for good.
We hope that smokers who would like to quit will take the Smokeout
seriously and use it along with the Fresh Start classes as a springboard to
a smoke-free lifestyle. To those of you who use today as an excuse to quit,
know that we stand behind your efforts and wish you along with millions
of other Americans the best.

IN MY OPINION
Election proves addictive
� �
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Try opening both deaf ears
Dear Editor,
A thorough analysis of any
issue under discussion would seem
to require a complete review of
all viewpoints and a measure of
objectivity.
That being the case, the situa-
tion (or situations) described in the
Nov. 14 Opinion piece "Turning
a deaf ear won't cure ignorance"
seem a bit contrived to say the least
(or perhaps badly scripted), but,
aside from noting this, I am going
to limit my letter to a few com-
ments about racism in general.
In the first place, racism is evil
and moronic. Nothing that comes
after this should be taken to mean
that I am implying otherwise. There
is no doubt that racism still exists
among many whites in all parts
of this nation. The history (some
quite recent) of race-based bigotry,
intimidation and violence make
this all too clear.
However, before any genuine
attempt can be made to cure this
ill (if it can be cured), we have to
recognize, as difficult as this will
be for some, that racism is not the
exclusive province of whites.
Having grown up in a housing
project in which I was one of only
four or five widely scattered white
children, I believe lamina position
to make some observations about
racism among Blacks (at least, here
in the South).
And I have to say that racism
is, unfortunately, just as prevalent
among Blacks as it is among Whites,
and far more openly expressed.
1 believe that one of the primary
reasons for this is that many people
(and not just Blacks) have come
to equate racism with Whites, and
oppression with Blacks, and thus,
nothing Blacks do or say can be
racist.
But it is not that simple, and
had I more room here, i would lay
out a more extensive argument. It
will have to suffice for me to say
that it is not enough to open one
deaf ear to cure racism; we have to
open both ears and hear the anger
coming from both sides.
Daniel Ketchum
Graduate StudentHistory
Have you found yourself run-
ning to your apartment to see what
new developments have arisen? To
see if the candidates numbers have
changed as the ballots are counted
and counted again?
The night of the election, that
long ago Tuesday night, I had to
pry myself away from the TV. I was
tired but I kept telling myself, one
more hour. I ended up going to
bed around t a.m. and not even
wanting to then.
The next morning, 1 woke up
early, turned over, fumbled for the
remote, and cut the TV on again
and watched it until I had to leave
for class at the last possible second.
I guess I don't have to tell you
that 1 ran home every chance I
had between classes to see what
transpired while I was away.
I became interested in presiden-
tial elections when I had to do a
report on the outcome of the 1992
election, and how I, along with
others, felt when Clinton was first
elected to office. One thing has
remained consistent, once all of
the votes are in and the numbers
have finished rolling across the
screen, my attention will be turned
off just as fast as I can change the
channel.
Other than casting my vote, the
only thing exciting for me about
an election is the apprehension
and anxiety I feel when I see the
numbers for one candidate escalate
and the difference between the
number of votes for each can-
didate grow. Unfortunately, the
numbers between Bush and Gore
never enlarged enough to tell the
difference.
I'm not the only one who is
addicted to the news coverage of
what is going on with the election.
In my classes everyone is talking
about it. People on TV are talking
about it. People in restaurants are
talking about it. You can't help but
become addicted.
At the same time, my addiction
turns to anger. It ticks me off to
know that 19,000 or so ballots were
thrown out because the chad on
the ballot didn't fall all the way out
or people double voted.
Yes, I am for Gore. But I think
if the shoe were on the other foot
and this was happening to Bush,
people would be just as enraged as
Gore voters who think they were
cheated (and they were) and would
want their candidate to have just as
fair a chance as the other man.
The Republicans push for the
recounting to end, but Democrats
want it to continue so all of those
ballots that were thrown out and
are believed to support Gore are
as equally represented as Bush's
votes.
If Bush and all of his supporters
believe to the utmost that he will
definitely be the next president
then why sweat the issue? Let Gore
continue to issue recount after
recount and make himself look like
a fool if it domes down to it.
One elderly lady that was inter-
viewed was mad because Palm
Beach County's votes didn't really
count. She said she worked at the
local election poll and people were
confused by the ballot but the
people working the polls couldn't
help them.
Because of that rule, I'm not
sure if it was just enacted at the
precinct or all over Florida (it wasn't
at the poll I was at), of course, some
people are going to miscast their
ballot. Yeah, they may have sent
out a practice ballot in the paper,
but not everyone receives the paper.
Not everyone watches TV. And if
they're like me, they don't keep up
with worldly news anyway.
I just really think if the people
of Florida are not appeased and
calmed down in a respectable
manner and with an outcome they
agree with, they are going to riot.
And I'm not so sure 1 blame them. I
might even go join them.
Everyone knows they're dis-
satisfied with the way things are
going. And you know it's bad when
a Republican, who voted for Bush,
sticks up for Gore: she said she just
wants the election resolved in a fair
way and she didn't think all the
ballots thrown away, which were
probably for Gore, was fair. To me,
that says it all.
I'm just really afraid if the
people of Florida are not really
listened to, whoever gets in office
one way or another, is not going
to be really accepted. The people
are screaming for equality and a
chance for each and every one of
their voices to be heard.
We're the ones who supposedly
elect these guys, and they are sup-
posed to act in our best interests. So
why aren't they, listening?

IN MYOPINION
Apocalypse now for U.S. politics
Atilta, BimttumA.
IN MYOPINION
Madison, Wis. (U-WIRE)-It is'
the year 2000, a popular one for
apocalyptic visionaries, but there
has been no flood. There has been
no fire or brimstone, no physical
signs that the Day of Judgment is
upon us. The sky, while overcast
and dark, almost foreboding, is not
falling. Yet, there is a feeling our
world will never be the same.
The identity of the next presi-
dent will not in itself have the most
significant impact. People have
said Bush and Gore may be the two
most indistinguishable candidates
in recent memory, at least in terms
of policy, and the closeness of
the congressional split assures
any sweeping reform is highly
unlikely.
Logically, Americans should not
care that much about the result of
the election, no matter how slim
the margin of victory.
But this election, with all its
see-saw drama, possible disparity
between the electoral and popular
vote, allegations of ballot fraud and
the fact that the presidency will
be decided by a relative thimbleful
of people in a state known mostly
for retirement communities, drug
problems and family vacations, will
impact everyone in this country for
the rest of their lives.
The outmoded Electoral Col-
lege, in all likelihood, will be abol-
ished. If Bush wins as expected,
the idea of the popularly elected
president not winning the presi-
dency, an idea incongruous with
our founding principles, if not our
Constitution, will cause an outcry
for reform.
Many people already thought
it was archaic and undemocratic.
Now, they will have ammunition
for action. And if a couple of those
electors dare to change their votes,
the bullets will surely fly.
The voting process itself will
inevitably change following deba-
cles in Florida and Missouri, at
least with a nationally consistent
ballot format and possibly with
computers replacing booths at
polling places.
Only then could we be assured
people in a heavily Jewish district
do not accidentally vote for Pat
Buchanan; only then will our future
not be put on hold while unpaid
volunteers with their own preju-
dices count ballots by hand.
The possibility of establishing
a third party is also over, at least
In the near future. Ralph Nader's
current status as the deciding factor
in Florida was like the Japanese
attack on Pearl Harbor: While it
seems a big victory for him right
now, it means the ultimate death
of his party.
The Democratic Party will react
with a shift to the left, away from
Clinton centrism, to capture the
Green vote in future elections. That
shift (which, perhaps, Is what Nader
supporters really wanted all along),
in addition to the backlash against
Nader voters and the likelihood
of "Nader guilt" among Florida
Greens, will crush the party's hopes
of becoming a factor in 2004 and
beyond.
Finally, and perhaps most
importantly, any young voters who
questioned the value of suffrage
have had their doubts quelled
resoundingly.
Our generation will have this
assurance for the rest of our lives,
purring our kids to sleep with advice
like, "You better vote. I remember
back in 2000 Our kids might be
bored with the stories, but we will
not. The value of a vote has been
proven, and we will not forget.
For better or worse, we are wit-
nessing a crisis of the status quo
in America.
The Electoral College, the idea of
"one person, one vote the ballot-
ing system, third-party candidates,
political implications of higher
voter turnout in the future and the
ability for America to survive such
a tight vote when many countries
would collapse under similar cir-
cumstances are all hanging in the
balance.
The candidates may be similar,
but the moment is unique. And
for good or bad, the apocalypse
projectors were right: This is the
end of the world as we know it.
Racist sports names must be abolished
Fort Collins, Colo.
(U-WIRE)-Washington Redskins,
Kansas City Chiefs, Florida State
Seminoles and the Cleveland Indi-
ans are just some examples of the
destructive and harmful names
that the United States of America
continues to spit in the face of
Native-Americans.
These names continue to subject
present-day natives to cruel and
unusual punishment. The many
Native-Americans of today do have
rights, but we, as a society, continue
to turn our backs on their wishes.
Apparently, human compassion
for someone being hurt has no
place in the world of sports in
this country. These sport team
names exploit Native-American
ethnicity. To exploit, by definition
of Webster's Dictionary, is to "use
unfairly Exploitation is taking
place and no one is willing to take
a stand against it.
The use of the names like Chiefs
or Braves (Atlanta) is perpetuating
the mainstream's view of the people
and their culture. It says: "You
as a 21st-century Indian do not
exist. Only.the biased view of our
conception of your ancestors is
what matters
This is shown by such acts as
the tomahawk chop, wearing feath-
ers and smoking "peace pipes
These acts also say to the Native-
Americans, "You are not important
enough to us for us to respect you
and your sacred rituals
Perhaps, because our American
society has lost the grasp of what
the word sacred means or how
to apply it to one's life, we are
unable to understand. The histori-
cal act of gaining one's feathers
in Native-American culture is very
important.
They just can't be bought at the
sports store. The historical act of
using a pipe is completely sacred to
Native-American religion. In other
words, it is sacrilegious for tans to
be portraying this act at football
games. It's like burning pages from
the Bible to pep up the crowd.
Why doesn't the NFL start a
team called the Louisiana Popes and
the fans can all wear "the cloth"
and dangle crosses and rosaries?
The idea is ludicrous, just as it is to
name a team Chiefs. It's demeaning
and shows disrespect towards a
group of people that the United
States has raped, murdered and
starved.
The word "redskin" is the equiv-
alent of the word "nigger It was
created to cause degradation and
is still not an acceptable word to
address someone with. Is there a
sports team named New York Nig-
gers? Why is there a Washington
Redskins? Come on, people, what's
wrong is wrong.
We need to treat everyone with
respect, but that is not happening.
Sure, some people might say that I
am overreacting to just a football
team name. But that's why it should
be so easy to change it to something
other than a racial slur. It's just a
name.
Many Native-Americans are
continually trying to fight to get
these changed, but to no avail. In
1992, the owner of the Redskins
was quoted as saying, "We honor
Native-Americans Oh, really?
What's Ihe honor in being recog-
nized by a racial slur in a national
setting, while having your sacred
religions and ceremonies mocked?
Where's the honor in fighting
to gain respect or at least a shred
of decency all the while being told
you are too touchy on the subject?
Where's the honor? There is none.
The people who continue to
support these sports names and
logos have none and give none.
Not only do we owe the Native-
Americans an apology, but we owe
them respect.
They have the right to be treated
with dignity, not as second-class
citizens. We should comply with
their protests of these sport teams
names. It is time to honor Native-
Americans with actions, not just
words.

Count deadline
passes, Bush
still ahead
(U-WIRE) COLUMBIA, Mo.(U.
Missouri)The U.S. presidential
election further submerged into
uncharted limbo when Florida
certified the majority of its votes
Tuesday night.
The official count shows Bush
ahead by 300 votes in Florida,
where Secretary of State Katherine
Harris required all non-absentee
votes tabulated by S p.m. EST.
The deadline came after a state
court threw out a lawsuit by Demo-
crat Al Gore's campaign, request-
ing an extension in the deadline
to allow for a hand recount in
predominantly Democratic coun-
ties.
In his ruling, Florida Circuit
Judge Terry Lewis did say, however,
that it is up to Harris to decide
whether late hand recounts are
accepted or rejected.
"The secretary of state may
ignore such late-filed results, but
may not do so arbitrarily the
court's report read.
Counties have until 2 p.m.
Wednesday to submit explanations
to Harris explaining why she should
consider recounted ballots. An
attorney with the Florida Depart-
ment of State did not say whether
Harris has already decided whether
to count the late returns.
Only Volusia County, Fla was
able to complete a hand recount
by the deadline, which the AP
reports gave Gore a net increase
of 98 votes.
Half an hour before the dead-
line, the Palm Beach canvassing
board decided to proceed with a
recount of the county's 420,000
ballots Wednesday at 7 a.m. EST.

A young man stole a car and took his

police said.
The bill came to $164,378.74 for 546

It's that time of year
again. Turkeys are being

It seems like Hallow-

it can be difficult to truly
think of things that one
can give thanks for during
this holiday season. Some
ECU students share what
they will remember before
they delve into the turkey

Brown first Ivy League school to have black president
itOUT

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP)-Ruth
Simmons' journey from sharecrop-
per's daughter to the president of
Brown University began the moment
she walked into her first classroom.
"That first day of school was
very magical she said Thursday.
"Something terrific happened. I
had books to read. I had paper and
pencils. That was the beginning of
my odyssey
Fifty years later, that former
young child in hand-me-down
clothes found herself speaking to a
standing-room-only crowd at Sayles
Hall, where she was surrounded
by the portraits of former Brown
presidents, all of them white men.
Simmons, the current president
of Smith College, became the 18th
president of Brown University on
Thursday. In the process, both she
and Brown made history.
She is the first black person to
head an Ivy League institution, and
she also is the first woman to head
Brown, the second to lead an Ivy-
school.
Her election marks the end of a nine-month search
that began shortly after E. Gordon Gee announced last
winter that he was leaving for Vanderbilt University, a
move that stunned the Brown community.
"It's not only magnificent for Brown but also for
the Ivies and all of higher education said Stanley
Ikenberry, president of the American Council on
Education. "Yes, it is a bold move in some respects,
but in others it is delightfully predictable. She has
all of the strengths one would expect to find in a
college president
Simmons seemed a bit taken aback by the lovefest
that greeted her in Sayles Hall, where she received
four standing ovations from a crowd of 500 faculty,
students and staff.
"It is impossible for me to stand before you without
remembering that I have arrived at this place through
the brutally hard and sometimes demeaning labor of
humble parents said Simmons, who was born into
rural poverty in Grapeland, Texas, the youngest of
Chancellor Stephen Robert hugs Brown's new president, Ruth J. Simmons. (TMS photo)

12 children.
Simmons, 55, also said she has succeeded thanks to
the kindness of strangers, those donors who enabled
her to afford a first-rate college education.
"They helped me understand that poverty is not a
state of mind nor a definition of one's character but
merely the condition of one's purse she told the
Brown assembly.
Then, Simmons delivered the kicker: Universities,
she said, exist not to amass wealth but to amass
knowledge.
"I hope that Brown will play a
leadership role in insisting that elite
universities remain steadfastly and
resolutely the province of excellent
minds and not fat purses
Simmons didn't pull any punches
Thursday.
She acknowledged that the uni-
versity has been grappling with the
contentious issue of diversity, from
how to make Brown more affordable to
all students to how to make the campus
more welcoming to minorities.
This is an area about which Sim-
mons feels especially passionate, and
she promised to play a direct role in
how the university implements the
report of the visiting committee on
diversity.
During an interview later in the
day, Simmons was frank about how
race and racism have shadowed her
childhood and her career.
"I grew up under Jim Crow segrega-
tion she said. "The result was that 1
know how to deal with bigotry. Young
people today have not grown up with
that. It's a shattering experience for them. It was never
a shattering experience for me
Racism was a fact of life in rural Texas and in
Houston, where Simmons moved when she was 7.
It continued when she went to Harvard, where she
received both her master's and her doctorate degrees
in Romance languages.
"When I first went to Harvard, I had a professor who
hated me she said. "I think he hated me because I was
the best student in his class. He refused to speak to me.
That's what people like me faced all the time
Simmons tells her students that they have to sort
out pure human meanness from classic bigotry. Then,
she tells them, you have to learn not to expect more
from people than they can realistically give.
Brown had to persuade Simmons to leave Smith, an
elite women's college in Northampton, Mass where she
had a big impact, doubling the endowment, increasing
minority applications and creating the first engineering
department in a women's college.

Colgate student charged
with manslaughter
HAMILTON, N.Y(TMS Campus) A 20-year-old Colgate University
junior has been charged with four counts of second-degree vehicular
manslaughter after the car he was driving while intoxicated spun out of
control and killed four passengers-including one Colgate student and
two Hobart and William Smith College freshmen.
Robert R. Koester was released from fail after posting 10 percent
of a $50,000 bond, said Madison County District Attorney Donald
Cerio. If convicted on each count of the Class D felony, Koester could
face up to 28 years in jail. He was also charged with driving while
Intoxicated.
Colgate is looking into allegations that Koester had been drinking
prior to the accident at Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity where Koester was
a member, said university spokeswoman Sarah Jarvis.
Koester's exact blood-alcohol level will not be known for weeks, until
after a blood test. State police also await results on an Investigation to
determine how fast Koester's sport utility vehicle was traveling before
it spun out of control.
Koester's Jeep Cherokee carried seven passengers before it spun off
the road and hit a tree at 1:45 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 11. Three 18-year-old
girls and one 20-year-old man were killed in the crash. Koester, who was
the only passenger wearing a seat belt, and two other passengers were
injured and later released form an area hospital
Colgate freshman Katie Almeter, and Hobart and William Smith
College freshman Emily Collins and Rachel Nargiso died in the crash.
Another 18-year-old woman who was injured was also a freshman at
Colgate. All four women had been high school friends.
The case will go before a grand jury early next year, Cerio said.
Colgate University is located in Hamilton, N.Y and Hobart and
William Smith College is located in Geneva about 107 miles west in

ECU is coach's
final home foe
Stephen Schramm
SPORTS EDITOR
Steve Logan and his
team know that the
hard part isn't close to
being over.
After becoming
bowl eligible last week-
end against Houston,
62-20, the Pirates know
that the next two
games will determine
the outcome of the
2000 season.
Saturday, Nov. 18
the Pirates step out of
conference to travel
to West Virginia. A
win would give the
Mountaineers a win-
ning season and make
them bowl eligible.
As if that wasn't
enough incentive, the
game will also mark
the end of an era at
West Virginia as long-
time Head Coach Don
Nehlen will be coach-
ing his final game in
Morgantown before
going into retirement.
"We've had big games,
and this is going to be
one of those games that
you really have to get
up for said senior nose
tackle Mbayo Ahmadu.
"We know their crowd is
really going to be into
it. It's going to be Don
Nehlen's last game and a
historic place and time, so
we're just going to have
to find a way to rise to the
occasion and shut their
crowd up
Nehlen has spent 21
years on the sidelines for
the Mountaineers leading
them to 147 wins. He
announced his retirement
after a 31-27 home loss
to Syracuse on Nov. 4.
Saturday's game will be
the final home game of
the season for the Moun-
taineers.
"How can you prepare
for it, what can you say
Logan said. "I've got to
believe that it's going to be
a total sellout in the stands
and a sellout emotionally
by the West Virginia foot-
ball team to play the
game in a manor that will
send coach Nehlen out
a winner. I don't know
what to do but go score
touchdowns
Scoring touchdowns
was not a problem for the
Pirates last week as they
shook off the rust and
blew out Houston by 42
points. However, the team
will not dwell on what it
has already done.
"The Houston game
is over with said junior
flanker Arnie Powell.
"Now we've got to focus
on West Virginia. We're
going to be playing them
at their place it's the last
game for their coach so
their going to play really
really hard. So we can't
think about Houston any-
more, we've got to think
about West Virginia
The Pirates will face a
West Virginia team that
runs a similar offense to
their own.
"They are built like
us Logan said. "They are
going to run the ball and
then throw it long. Their
not really into the inter-
mediate passing game.
"They've got two
extraordinary wide receiv-
ers he said. "Both of
them are 4.44, sub-4.40
guys and its going to test
our corners because they
can throw it deep. They
are a good deep ball team
much like we are
"We know what their
trying to do Ahmadu
said. "They have a lot of
big guys. They average
6'4" 300 across the top so
its no secret what their
trying to do. Their going
to try to pound the ball.
"What we're going to
have to do is play aggres-
sive he said. "We're not
as big as they are but we're
faster and quicker and I
think we're more aggres-
sive
Last week's win gave
the Pirates six wins and
assured them of at least
a winning season. It also
made them bowl eligible.
However, they are just

Football History 101
Saturday's game at West Vlginia will mark
the final home game for 21 -year WVU Head
Coach Don Nehlen. To help prepare for the
game, ECU Head Coach Steve Logan had to
give a history lesson to the team.
"I took the team aside and had to edu-
cate them on who Don Nehlen was and
what he has done for the game Logan said.
It is appartently not the first time Logan
has educated his team on the opponents
place in college football history.
"When we went down to play Alabama, I
had kids who didn't know who Bear Bryant
was Logan said. "Some of them thought
he was a character from 5moey and the

Powell in backup role
Following the arrest and suspension of
backup quarterback Richard Alston earlier
this season, starting flanker Arnie Powell qui-
etly assumed the role of David Garrard's
backup. Powell, a former high school quar-
terback, has not taken a college snap.
"I played quarterback, basically my whole
life up untill I got here Powell said. "I
hadn't played in about three, three-and-a
half years
Powell was third on the depth chart all
season but garnered more attention as a
speedy receiver. Powell has caught 10 passes
this season for 195 yards and two touch-

Warner to
return
soon
Former MVP
quarterback, Kurt
Warner will likely
return to action
when the Rams pay
a visit to the Carolina Panthers on Dec. 3
in Charlotte. Warner has been out since
Oct. 22, when he broke his finger against
the Kansas City Chiefs.
Wamer had surgery on the finger on
Oct. 24 and has missed five games.
Warner led the Rams to a Champion
ship last season and only lost once as a
starter this season.
The ECU men's soccer team fought extremely
hard in the second half to tie the game and force
two overtimes, but Virginia Tech took the victory
3-2. Virginia Tech's Ryan Cummins scored the game's
winning goal against the Pirates on Senior Day at
Bunting Field.
ECU was unable to get anything started in the first
half, and they took a 2-0 deficit into halftime after a
missed penalty kick and two Virginia lech goals.
"They scored very early on us in the first half and I
think it really set us back on our heels said ECU Head
Coach Devin O'Neill. "We just didn't play particularly
well in the first half, I think our guys were playing
pretty hard, but it took a while for us to get back in
the game
The Pirates came out in the second half and played
with an enormous amount of heart, confidence and
determination. In the 55th minute ECU senior defens-
men Andy Jennings scored the first Pirate goal of the
day, reducing the deficit to one, and giving a well
needed boost to the team.
"I was kind of in the right place at the right time
Jennings said. "We had some runs set up on that play
and the ball just fell in. I was really glad to get the goal
when I did, pick our team back up, and start coming
back in the game
Ten minutes later the Pirates would add another
goal and tie the game at 2-2, as freshman midfielder
Brian Deutsch netted the ball on a free kick from
22-yards out.
At the end of regulation the score was tied 2-2, and
the game would go in to two 15 minute, sudden death,
extra time periods. ECU had numerous chances to take
the victory in the first overtime, but the luck never
fell their way. An automatic red card was delivered to
Virginia Tech near the end of the first overtime, and
for the rest of the match their team was downsized
to 10 players.
Cummins placed a shot in the upper corner of
the goal, past ECU goalie Dino Stambolitis, that gave
Virginia Tech the lead and the victory.
"Soccer has been everything to me for
a long time and I'm sure I'll look back
on this season and this team in a very
positive way
Nick Errato
FCU Defensemen
ECU senior midfielder Greg Hoffman
(center) played his final game as a Pirate
Friday. The Pirates fell to Virginia Tech
3-2. (file photo)
"It was a very emotional day O'Neill said. "We
had a lot to play for and the team really wanted this
one, not only for the seniors' last game, but we had
the oppurtunity to get nine wins and tie a record. I am
very proud of the way this team has fought and never
quit the entire season
"Ending this chapter of my life is hard said senior
defensmen Nick Errato. "Soccer has been everything to
me for a long time and I'm sure I'll look back on this
season and this team in a very positive way "
ECU finishes the 2000 season with a somewhat
pleasing record of 8-11, one win shy of the single-
season record for wins, set by the 1986 Pirates who
had nine.

Swim teams fall to State
Men dealt first loss of
year, women get second
Ryan Downey
SENIOR WRfTER
The ECU swim team faced their
toughest competition of the season
last Friday against the N.C. State
Wolfpack. The Men picked up their
first loss of the season at the hands
of the Wolfpack while the women
lost their second.
"We were happy with the way
we swam against N.C. State said
Head swimming Coach Rick Kobe.
"I would say just about every race
came down to the last half a second.
It was held in front of a standing
room only crowd. This was our
third straight standing room only
crowd
The men's meet featured
another great performance by fresh-
man sensation Matt Walker who
continues to push towards qualify-
ing for the NCAA meet.
Friday, Walker tied his own
freshmen men's record in the 200
meter freestyle and finished one-
10th of a second off the NCAA
qualifying cut time. His time was
also one- 10th of a second off the
varsity record at ECU.
Walkers' performance knotted
up three first place finishes for the
Pirates on the afternoon. Walker
who has won all 12 of his individual
events this season also teamed with
freshmen Daniel Walters and Will
Powell, and senior Claes Lindgren
to win the 4x400 free relay.
"1 thought the guys could have
done a little better but we gave it
our all said senior Will Hudgins.
"If we raced again I think the meet
would be closer. 1 think their pro-
gram is ust one that's there in
the upper echelon. Once you get
past their first swimmers they were
more or less on our level. I think in
years to come we have a chance ol
getting to that level
The women's team fought hard
in their second loss of the season.
Many of the women stepped up in
a meet that was close throughout.
One of the most exciting perfor-
mances of the day was junior Dana
Fullers winning the 1000-meter
free style. Her time was one second
off her own varsity record and one
second off the pool record for the
event.
Senior Tracy Ormond finished

Now I get a little more but not

terback would get
Powell threw for over 2,600
yards and 31 touchdowns as a
quarterback at Deep Creek High
School in Deep Creek, Va.
And now
the weather
As if it wasn't bad enough
that the Pirates had to make
their visit to Morgantown during
Don Nehlen's swan song, they
also have to contend with their
first game on artificial turf as well
as the weather.
The forecast calls for the high
on Saturday to be 39 degrees.
There will be snow and rain on
Friday and the turf surface of
Mountaineer field should make
for a all-around tough game.
"It's (Nehlen's) last game it's
cold, it's playing on turf, if s a
lot of adversity said senior nose
tackle Mbayo Ahmadu. "But rf
you want to win you've got to
play in adversity
The bowl picture
With Saturday's win over
Houston, the Pirates (6-3, 4-2)
kept alive their faint bowl hopes.
If first-place Louisville (8-2, 5-1)
wins at Houston on Saturday
then the Pirates flickering title
hopes will be snuffed out. That
will give the Cardinals the title
and the Liberty Bowl bid.
If the Pirates then win their
next two games, including the
Nov. 24 clash with Southern
Miss (7-2, 4-1), then the Pirates
and Eagles will be tied for
second with ECU getting the
second-place nod thanks to the
head-to-head.
Now this is where it gets
complicated, if this happens
then the GMAC Mobile Alabama
Bowl will have to chose between
their loser from last year, ECU
and the nearby Golden Eagles.
Emotions
will run high
For the Mountaineers and the
college football life of the state
of West Virginia, Saturday will
be an emotional day. First, it
will be the last home game for
West Virginia football icon Don
Nehlen. Also ECU's visit will be
a reminder of the worst sports
tragedy in American history.
This week, the memory of the
plane crash that killed 75 people
and the entire Marshall Univer-
sity football team has weighed
heavy on the minds of college
football fans. The crash hap-
pened 30 years ago this week
when the team was returning
from a game at ECU.
Last Saturday, ECU marked
the event with a moment of
silence prior to their game
against Houston.

Team drops
two on road trip
Ryan Downey
SENIOR WRITER
The ECU Pirate volleyball team
lost two games and picked up one
win on their last road trip of the
season.
The lone win came against Vir-
ginia Commonwealth University
giving the Pirates a victory in their
last CAA conference game before
moving on to Conference USA next
season. The losses came against
N.C. State and CAA rival William
& Mary. The W St M loss was the
first against them this season after
the Pirates beat the Tribe in two
matches earlier in the season.
"We had beaten William & Mary
two times this season and it's tough
to beat a team three times in one
season said Pirates Head Coach
Colleen Farrell. "They came out
very determined lo beat us
The Pirates who are 17-12 on the
season are guaranteed a winning
record regardless of the outcome
Saturday when they hosl Virginia
Tech.
"The entire team is so excited
to play this weekend. The Seniors
came in with five, and four of us are
leaving a class mate behind said
senior middle hitter Sarah Kary. We
are going to have to play well and
execute offensively. If we are able
to execute we will win
The fifth senior, middle hitter
Chrissy McPheeters, had to take
a redshirt this year because of
an injury and will return next
season. Four seniors who will be
finishing their careers this season;
outside hitter Liz Hall, outside
hitter Cinta Claro, middle hitter
l.uCinda Mason and Kary rank in
ECU'S top 10 in many categories.
The seniors look forward to
an athletic, exciting game this
weekend and hope to close the
season with a meaningful win
against a tough opponent. They
are getting themselves mentally
prepared for the last match of the
year.
"I'm excited about it. I'm look-
ing forward to Virginia lech
Mason said. "It's one thing to play
a weak team and walk all over
them, but it's another thing to
play a tough team and win. I really
enjoyed this senior year. 1 feel like
we accomplished a lot as a team
and 1 have no regrets

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