demand return of
skeletons
ZACK HILL
STAFF WRITER
About a half dozen protest-
ers from the Southern Band
Tuscarora Tribe gathered on the
corner of Founder and Fifth Street
on Tuesday and Wednesday to
object to FXU's possession of the
remains of some members of the
Tuscarora tribe that were exca-
vated in Bertie County.
The remains, totaling about
SO incomplete skeletons, are cur-
rently in the possession of the
FXU's Phelpa Archaeology lab,
under the direction of Charles
Ewen, professor of anthropology
The protesters carried signs
labeling Ewen, along with Chief
Leo Henry of the New York Tus-
carora tribe and Robert Palmer of
the National Parks Department, of
being a "band of liars
Marilyn Mejorado, council-
woman of the Southern Band
Tuscarora tribe, said that the
remains should be returned to the
Southern Band Tuscarora Tribe so
that they may be properly buried.
She said Henry and the New York
Tuscarora have no right to deter-
mine how they are handled.
"He says you have to go
through me to bury your ances-
tors Mejorado said. "We are
direct descendants, not Leo
ECU currently has the remains
as under the Native American
Graves Protection and Repa-
triation Act, which was passed
in 1990.
Ewen said that much of the
problem stems from the historical
background of the Tuscarora. At
the conclusion of the Tuscarora
War in 1715, most of the tribe
moved from North Carolina to a
reservation in New York. Those
who remained in North Carolina,
including the Southern Band,
are not federally recognized as a
tribe and are considered to have
officially broken with the tribe
by the federally recognized New
York Tuscarora.
The New York Tuscarora have
been given control of all Tusca-
rora remains, and it is with the
New York tribe that federal law
mandates Ewen must deal.
The New York tribe has vis-
ited the ECU Archaeology lab
on several occasions, condoning
the university's possession of
the remains and bringing along
a shaman to bless them with a
tobacco offering that remains In
the lab today. They hope to have
the remains interred somewhere
on federal land in New York so
that they will not be disturbed
again, Ewen said.
Mejorado believes they should
be returned to a five acre plot of
land in Bertie County owned by
the Southern Band.
"We would not bury our people
in someone else's yard. We want to
bury them at home Mejorado said.
Ewen said that though the
New York tribe has been out
of North Carolina for nearly
three hundred years, it does not
make their connection to the
remains any less than that of
the Southern Band because the
remains are the ancestors of both.
"You have to be a federally
recognized tribe or have direct
lineal descent to have this kind
of control. The Southern Band
has neither. These skeletons are a
thousand years old with no names.
There is no historical lineal way
to trace them Ewen said.
The U.S. Department of the
Interior sent a letter to ECU in
response to a previous griev-
ance from the Southern Band
stating that the university does
not have to deal or consult with
Mejorado.
"Clearly they have some Native
American background, but how
much is yet to be determined
FZwen said.
Three ECU police officers vis-
ited the protesters on Wednesday,
ensuring that they were in the
right place and not blocking the
sidewalk. No citations were issued.
They weren't breaking the law
said Major Frank Knight,division
commander for the FXU Police.
Ewen said that he understood
the protesters' position, but had to
follow federal guidelines.
"I'm sympathetic, but my
hands are tied here Ewen said.
Mejorado said that she would
return on Thursday with more
protesters, and would continue the
protests through the winter.

Suspicious e-mails or

SHANDA STATON
STAFF WRITER
An ECU student recently
received an e-mail from a self
proclaimed "artist" from London.
The artist (con-artist) stated that
he could not cash money orders
from the United States that cus-
tomers used to purchase his works
of art. He convinced the student
to deposit three money orders
in their checking account. The
student then mailed off a check
to the artist in England. After
several weeks, the bank discov-
ered that the money orders were
bogus. By that time the student's
check had cleared the bank. The
bank notified the student, who
then had to make arrangements
to pay back the $3,000. The bank
took mercy upon the student and
did not require payment of the
"bounced check" fee.
"This student was just one of
the five cases that gets reported
each year concerning the matter
of identity theft or money fraudu-
lence said Major Frank Knight
of the ECU police department.
"There are different forms in
which students will encounter
these scams; there are types of
e-mails that we call "fishing e-
mails where a fake company will
send out questionnaires, employ-
ment forms or fake account inqui-
ries on accounts, in which to
receive information and most
likely commit identity theft said
Major Knight.
Many students have received
the various e-mails through their
ECU Pirate Mail accounts, and
students must be aware that not
all e-mails are reliable.
"If in doubt check it out said
ECU police officer Janel Drake.
"If something probably sounds
too good to be true then it prob-
ably is said Drake.

Event helps less
fortunate during the
holiday season
ELISA BIZZOTTO
STAFF WRITER
Beginning this past Tuesday
and extending until next week,
ECU's chapter of the Public
Relations Student Society of
America in collaboration with
Samaritan's Purse, is holding
their annual Operation Christmas
Child event.
The event, which is an effort
to bring holiday cheer to children
and families around the globe who
live in impoverished or devastated
areas, allows students the oppor-
tunity to compile and donate gift
boxes or individual items to give
to PRSSA to donate.
"PRSSA is using this project
as a way to give back to the com-
munity and help children around
the world who are less fortunate
then us said Nicole Devine,
the Secretary and Community
Service Chair of PRSSA. "The
basic purpose of OCC is to collect
gift-filled shoeboxes to send to
children in need throughout the
world who otherwise would not
have any type of Christmas
This is the third year the
PRSSA has participated in this
event and is implementing a few
new approaches to encourage
more participation from the ECU
community. In addition to col-
lecting the gift boxes and small
objects such as toys, schools
supplies, hygiene products and
hard candy, they are accepting
monetary donations to assist with
the $7 shipping and handling
fee attached to each box. Devine
said that this year the organiza-
tion has gone to local businesses
asking them for donations of gift
certificates to use in a raffle.
Devine hopes that the raffle,
which is open to students through
a donation of a single dollar, in
addition to other efforts to pro-
mote the event, will help bring
in more participation. Devine
added that thus far Red Lobster
has donated gift certificates that
will be raffled off beginning this
afternoon.
The PRSSA's involvement
with this endeavor allows them
to give back to the community
without receiving any tangible
benefits in return. They collect
donations and gifts and pass them

On Monday Nov. 6 at 7:30
p.m. ECU welcomed the actors of
the play The Caine Mutiny Court
Martial to speak to students of
the art, communication, dance and
theatre departments. These artists
are actors and producers of works
such as '21 drams, The Lion King,
Hamlet, "Oops! Comedy Improve
"Judging Amy "Deep Space Nine
"NYPD Blue "Fresh Prince of
Bel-Air and "Murphy Brown
The guests presented on living
and working the creative life
in Los Angeles, New York and
even in the productions around
Greenville.
ECU school of communica-
tion professor Fick Green was
the emcee for the night, asking
engaging questions and encour-
aging audience participation. The
participants of the discussion were
J. Paul Boehmer, Bill Brochtrup,
Matt Gaydos, Anthony Moisten
and Grant Shaud. Green's first
question to the panel was "Where
did your first inspiration to enter
this field come from?" Grant
Shaud quickly responded, "Where
I grew up wanting to be an actor
was not a realistic calling for a kid
from Villanova, Pa. to pursue. My
last semester senior year of col-
lege I figured if I could stand up
in tights in front of my fraternity
brothers and perform Henry the
Eighth, then I could go to New
York. 1 have one life to do what
I want to do and that is why I'm
here Anthony Holsten, a member
of the Greenville Theatre Project
said, "There were always things I
had to do and then theatre, which
was fun. You can actually do the-
atre and make a modest living
Green then asked the group
what the logistics of working in
television, film and theatre are.
Bill Brotchtrup, who played John
Irvin, the homosexual police
officer on "NYPD Blue" for over
a decade responded, "It is a lot of
who you know. It is all about con-
nections and who you meet. It is
not necessarily a clear path; you
have to find a way. It is a constant
scramble to get ahead and yes,
we all have agents, but how were
we discovered? Perhaps at a mall,
being naturally gorgeous, submit
a portfolio or had been seen in a
play. I try to be charming. I got
my original agent by sending out
pictures repeatedly

Hedda Gabler
The event will run through
Tuesday, Nov. 21 and starts
at 8 p.m except Sunday
(2 p.m.) in McGinnis Audi-
torium.
By Henrik Ibsen Adaptation
by Christopher Hampton.
Less than forty-eight hours
after returning from a luxuri-
ous honeymoon, the former
Hedda Gabler, now Hedda
Tesman, lies dead in the
parlor of her new home,
the victim of a self-inflicted
gunshot to the head. Ibsen's
terse masterpiece unflinch-
ingly leads us to this shock-
ing but inevitable conclu-
sion. At the center of the
play is one of the greatest
roles in modern drama, the
fascinating Hedda Gabler,
who finds herself stranded
in a seemingly ordinary but
dangerously unbalanced
domestic system. It includes
her husband, the ambitious
scholar George Tesman, his
doting Aunt Julie and the
powerful Judge Brack, who
seems intent on playing a
very large role in the young
couple's life. Into this mix
comes an old schoolmate
of Hedda's, Thea Elvsted,
who has courageously aban-
doned a love-less marriage
in favor of the passionate
partnership she has found
with the troubled Eilert
Lovborg, a brilliant thinker
who is an academic rival of
Tesman's and who shares an
intense secret history with
Hedda.

BRIEFS
N.C. Court of Appeals: Cor-
poral punishment not necessarily
abuse
(AP) Spanking a child,
even hitting him with a belt anil
causing a bruise, isn't child abuse
if it doesn't cause serious physical
injury, the state Court of Appeals
ruled Tuesday.
The decision came in an appeal
by a Fender County father who
was convicted of abusing his son
and neglecting other children
The Court of Appeals reversed the
finding by Render County District
Court Judge Rhyllis Ciorham.
A d-year-old boy, identified in
court documents only as "Th.B
told a social worker he had been
abused because his father hit him
with a belt and created a bruise on
his buttocks.
"In his appeal, the father
argues that corporal punishment,
i.e spanking, standing alone, does
not constitute abuse the court
said "We ague
Abuse causes serious physi-
cal injury, the court said. Cases
showing abuse have included par-
ents who pulled out a child's hair,
burned them or hit them with their
fists, all of which require immedi-
ate medical attention.
"Here, the only injury reported
by Th.B. and found by the trial
court was bruising on Th.Bs right
arm and buttocks as a result of the
father's spanking the court said
Social Services filed a petition
that alleged the three children as
well as one-year-old "C.B were
abused and neglected, and the
court took them into custody.
Th.B. testified at a March
2005 hearing that his father hit
him because he missed the church
bus and misbehaved when he was
on it. He also said he had fallen on
a board the day before and didn't
look at his buttocks to see if they
were bruised before the belting.
S.C. woman that didn't like
Confederate T-shirt at fair charged
with trespassing
(AP) A Summerville woman
who didn't like a Confederate
T-shirt being sold at a fair was
charged with trespassing after she
bought the shirt and stood outside
the gates, asking people what they
thought about it.
Deanna Bernstein, 3H, said
the T-shirt sold by a vendor at
the Coastal Carolina Fair said
"Confederately Correct Civil
Right! for Southern Whites
which she thought was offensive
and inappropriate for children.
"These children are going
by and they see the T-shirt and
they think hatred is OK. How
could anything changer1" Ber-
nstein told The (Charleston)
Post and Courier.
Bernstein said she was fined
$440 and spent about eight hours
in jail.
Coastal Carolina Fair pres-
ident Chip Boling said Bern-
stein was well-mannered, but
was asked several times to leave
the property.
BeriMteil) moved to the area
from Los Angeles about two
months ago.
"The more people generalize,
the more people hate, the more
divided the cultures are going to
be Bernstein said. "It is so ugly
here in the South "
'Ageist' Birthday Cards Banned
By Council
(KMTR) English coun-
cil bosses have warned staff
against sending "ageist" birth-
day cards to colleagues, because
they could be breaking new age
discrimination laws.
Jokes about being "over
the hill" and "past it" are no
laughing matter for work-
ers at South Gloucestershire
council, who have been told age-
related jokes could constitute dis-
crimination or even harassment.
In a memo sent to the council's
10,000 staff, personnel chief Paul
Scrivener warned, "Even send-
ing a colleague a birthday card
that says they are over the hill
and past it' could be taken as
ageist behavior
"This is not just a phase the
council are going through, it's the
law which means you will be liable
for any comments or action you
make or do that someone may find
ageist and discriminatory
Canadian Troops Use Cannabis
Camouflage
(KMTR) Canadian troops
on a NATO mission to combat Tal-
iban militants in Afghanistan have
resorted to camouflaging their
vehicles with marijuana foliage.
The chief of the
Canadian defense staff, Gen.
Rick Hiller, told reporters in
Ottawa there were actual forests of
10-foot-high marijuana plants
that were almost impenetra-
ble by heat-seeking technology
and that Taliban fighters were
using it as cover.
Hiller said some troops were
using the Taliban's own jungle
tactics of using the plants as
cover by draping their personnel
carriers with cannabis branches
and leaves.
He said attempts to elimi-
nate the forests by burning them
with white phosphorus and diesel
fuel weren't working, as the plants
contain so much water, ABC
News reported.
He said even successful burning
had unexpected consequences.
A couple of brown plants
on the edges of some of those
(forests) did catch on fire. But a
section of soldiers that was
downwind from that had some ill
effects and decided that was prob-
ably not the right course of action,
Hiller said.
About 2,300 Canadian troops
are based in Kandahar province
as part of the NATO mission.

Playing hangman
Or would you prefer Russian
roulette?
ELIZABETH LAUTEN
CONTRIBUTING WRITER
If there's anyone in the world who deserves to fall
through the hangman's trap and suffer the torture of
the noose, it is Saddam Hussein.
Announced Sunday, Saddam's death sentence of
hanging has been celebrated by many Americans and
yet denounced by much ofthe world. While most people
seem to agree with the verdict, many are disturbed by
the fact that Saddam has been sentenced to death. This
"eye for an eye" vengeance does not seem just.
But, I must ask - what sort of modern death sen-
tence is hanging? I honestly can't believe that in such
a developed world, we still allow people and countries :
to sentence someone to death by hanging. Hanging is
such a barbaric way to kill someone. How is punishing
Saddam for killing people violently, a justifiable reason
to in turn kill him violently?
It's not that I'm against capital punishment.
Clearly, the man deserves the death sentence for the
atrocities he committed against the Shiite town of
Dujail, where 148 men and boys were killed for an
alleged plot to assassinate the Iraqi dictator back in
1984. Nevertheless, when did the world digress to
accepting such primitive punishments as reasonable?
I mean if we're going to consider hanging a good
way to kill someone, then why not consider Saddam's
alleged "people shredder As recently as 2003,
Saddam and his lackeys fed people who opposed him
through a wood chipper. Putting Saddam through his
own shredder would at least makes for poetic justice.
Better yet, we could stone him to death. Or, if we
really want to see him suffer - disembowelment, as it
is one ofthe most severe forms of capital punishment.
I just don't think that in punishing brutal, violent
acts we should resort to the same brutality. We should
be more civilized. Whatever happened to the gas cham-
ber or lethal injection? I know many people want to
see him "suffer" more than those options provide, but
this should be about Iraq finally standing up for their
laws and about the world finally getting rid ofa hor-
rible man - not about being as inhumane as possible.
Nevertheless, despite my beliefs, Saddam's sentenc-
ing should serve as a reminder andor warning to both
present and future leaders to remember no one is above
the law. I think President Bush said it best in calling the
verdict "a milestone in the Iraqi people's efforts to replace
the rule ofa tyrant with the rule oflaw as it is quite an
achievement for such a young democracy.
And kudos to America for helping bring Saddam
to justice.
I am not fat
JESSICA DUNLOW
OPINION WRITER
I am not fat, but the media tells me I am. Kvery
magazine on the racks today convinces college-aged
girls that we should look like our "peers Lindsay
Lohan, Paris Hilton and the Olsen twins, which is
ridiculous. Models and celebrities today support look-
ing like skin and bones. Since the "heroin chic" mod-
eling of the early 1990s, anorexic thin has been in.
On average, 22 percent of college-aged men
and women have eating disorders. According to
the National Eating Disorders Association, eating
disorders are the third highest problem on college
campuses. Why is this happening? Psychologists
say that certain personalities and the need for con-
trol cause eating disorders. Perhaps, but society is
what is causing eating disorders.
Magazine covers rage with titles similar to,
"What the celebs do to stay thin "Crash diets of
the Rich and Famous" and "Nicole Richie: Go to
Rehab Recently, fashion industry leaders in Spain
announced that they are only putting models with
a body mass index (weight to height ratio) of 18 and
up on the catwalk. The decision eliminated almost
80 percent ofthe 50 models that walked last year.
Former model Claudia Schiffer stepped out to state,
"They are way too thin. It is only bones that stick
out Whereas in the age of Cindy Crawford and
Schiffer, curves were in. If you had a nice butt and
legs you were set - it wasn't about the numbers then.
In this summer's The Devil Wears Prada, the main
character makes fun of the girls who only eat SOO
calories a day and starve themselves for weeks before
a major event. I think we are reading the wrong maga-
zines, and watching the wrong movies and television
shows. Vogue is full of these anorexic thin models, so
scratch that magazine. Seventeen has sections of how
girls should be proud of their bodies, so, let's praise
them. People magazine and Time magazine have
begun to criticize these anorexic thin models and
celebrities by speculating rehab instance.
When it is impossible to escape pictures of these
people all over the Internet, movies and our own
walls, our body images are at risk. I am not fat, but the
media tells me I am. However, we must fight against
the age ofthe super skinny and refuse to let the media
tell us who and what we should look like. Then, in a
world full of unnaturally small sizes, those of us who
do not follow the media's idea of skinny and do not
let our bodies deteriorate will reign. Because then we
will be the ones who are setting the trends.

Bridget Todd's article on racism
was awesome! Not only was it
well written, but I agree whole-
heartedly. I'm a white girl who is
just realizing the pervasiveness
of racism still present in this
day and time. I am just realizing
this because racism is not an
everyday issue for whites as
it is for others. If you do a little
research that goes further than
what they told you in your history
classes. You will find out about
the Greensboro killings, the
Wilmington race riots, and the
tragedy in Oxford, N.C. Then you
might understand that racism is
not so far in the past as you might
think and that it's not something
you can just get over.

Graduation symbolizes a point in
life where society acknowledges
the fact that you have passed

learned the necessary materials
to show that you can now move
on with your life. The fact that
we graduated high school with
honors symbolizes that we
went above and beyond the
necessary measures to achieve
success. Therefore, get over your

a connection though and I want to ask her out, I just
don't know if it's appropriate.
Signed,
Not too young to fall in love
I want to welcome you to the wonderful place we call
college. It's a place where you can do whatever you want,
whenever you want, with whomever you want fake ID
optional. In high school, the age difference made a much
larger impact on relationships because people mature
in so many different ways throughout those formative
years. In college, most of us have a better idea of who
we are and have grown up enough to at least carry on a
relationship, if we so choose. Every individual is differ-
ent, but if you feel that you connect with this girl and
she seems to feel the same way, don't psych yourself out
and make age a factor. The older people become, the less
the numbers on the cake matter. After all, when Demi
Moore was in high school, Ashton Kutcher was simply
a twinkle in his parents' eyes; look how happy they are
today. It's all about mind over matter. If the two of you
don't mind, then it doesn't matter.
Best of luck,
Jane

Pill poppin'
college students
on the rise
Quick fix for success
STACY DAIL
OPINION WRITER
So yeah, by now classes are in full swing and
the work load for students continues to pile on
heavier and heavier - a six-page paper due Monday,
two exams on Tuesday, Course Compass due on
Thursday and another exam on Friday.
So what is a college student to do with so much
work and such a small amount of time in which to
get it done? The answer to this question is a sur-
prisingly dangerous one and according to an N.C.
State database, the number of students who are
choosing to take Adderall and other prescription
drugs to stay awake is on the rise.
Adderall and Ritalin are both used to treat
ADHD among children, but I have noticed many of
my fellow classmates, who clearly do not have the
disorder, popping the pills on a daily basis.
These are the same students who complain
about having so much work, go out four nights
out ofthe week, get completely trashed and come
dragging in at five o'clock in the morning just in
time to get a few hours of sleep and miss their
morning classes.
I understand that college is the best four years
ofa person's life and that partying is a part of what
makes it great, but come on, if you have work to
do, then why stay out late getting drunk and then
depend on pills to keep you alert the next day?
The thing is, though, many students don't
understand the effects these drugs can have on
them in the long run. In Adderall specifically, it
is common to cause an elevated pulse and blood
pressure. Even though the purpose of taking the
drug is to stay awake, studies have shown that it can
effect sleep patterns indefinitely, making it hard for
someone to go to sleep even when they want to.
The purpose of college is to go to class, do well
and get a degree so that eventually the party life
will turn into the responsible, successful and able
to support a family life. Taking pills isn't a good
way to go about doing well in college, especially
since it is an amphetamine and it is quite possible
to get addicted.
So, my question was, how are so many students
getting their hands on these prescription drugs?
Well, after a little bit of research, I found out in a
study done by Sean McCabe, who has done various
studies about nonmedical use of prescription drugs
among college students, that ADHD is diagnosed
more in the United States than any other country
and that the United States consumes the highest
amount of Ritalin and Adderall.
So, go doctors for assuming that every kid is too
hyperactive and feeding them pills for every meal
so that eventually anyone is able to have a taste.
Sure, there are probably bigger problems in
the world other than college students living off of
Adderall and alcohol, but is it really that hard to go
to class, do work on time, study over the course a
week and then party at night? Avoiding pills can't
be that hard, unless of course, you've been feeding
on them for a while and just can't get enough.
So, for all of you pill-popping students of ECU:
Why not prioritize your activities and come up with
a healthy, more responsible way of making good
grades while still having fun?
Letter To The Editor
The following letter to the editor has been shortened
due to space restrictions. The full letter is available
online at theeastcarolinian.comopinion.
I'd like everyone to take a moment to reflect on
Veterans' Day. Veterans' Day is a day when we pay
homage to our nations' veterans for their service.
Military service is a choice. For some it is a
way to be patriotic, for others, it's a chance to see
the world. Others may see it as a way to earn col-
lege benefits or to challenge themselves. Some
chose military service because their fathers had
served. Many years ago, some were drafted - they
didn't choose to serve, but they did so anyway and
served honorably when their nation called upon
them to defend the Constitution of the United
States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Today, we find ourselves at a critical crossroad.
We are fighting a global war on terrorism. Amidst
the controversy, one thing holds true: Our troops are
performing their duties professionally. I'm thank-
ful for that. Some may say, "If I support the troops
then I'm supporting the war Wrong answer. I'm
thankful to live in a country where our military
submits to civilian authority and I'm thankful for
the professionalism of our Armed Forces. We do not
have a Republican Army nor a Democrat Air Force,
a conservative Marine Corps nor a Liberal Navy or
Coast Guard. Our forces are apolitical. They are
trustworthy and loyal.
Less than one percent of the American public
serves in the Armed Forces. Who are these people?
They are a cross-section of America. They are stu-
dents, faculty and staff members here at ECU. They
have different religions and political party affiliations.
They have different views on the war. Some are single,
others are married. They eat pizza, drink beer and
exercise. They do everything you do. You see them
every day but you may not even recognize them.
Tnere are over 500 military veterans including
National Guard, reserves and dependents of active
military enrolled at ECU. On Veterans' Day this year,
stop for a minute and think about what these folks
have done. One day of respectful acknowledgement
seems like a paltry sum but our veterans are a humble
lot. They ask for little and expect nothing. Next time
you see a veteran, your father, brother, sister, friend,
professor, maintenance worker, tell them thanks.
They may seem humble, caught off guard even, but
they will appreciate your acknowledgement on Veter-
ans' Day. Thank you veterans for all that you've done
and for what you continue to do.

A nyruw - BwwtwaeArft
(MCT) A decade ago, voca-
tional education students might
have spent their time rebuilding
engines, welding sheet metal,
or learning to cook and sew.
But on a recent afternoon,
vocational students at Chicago
High School for Agricultural Sci-
ences spent their day studying the
physiology of animals, creating
buildings on computer-drafting
programs, and performing chem-
istry experiments on food.
The 600 teenagers in the
Southwest Side school are part of
a quiet but growing revolution.
In the past, vocational educa-
tion was seen as a second-class
education, the path for students
who planned to skip college and
head directly into the workforce.
But a national focus on academic
accountability and a high-tech
economy that demands more
highly skilled workers has forced
a change: Vocational education is
now for college-bound students.
Gone are the low-tech auto
and woodworking shops, replaced
by labs filled with state-of-the-
art equipment and computers.
Courses in tractor driving, cook-
ing and engine rebuilding have
given way to programs in vet-
erinary medicine, robotics and
computer networking. And the
lax academic standards, once the
hallmark of vocational education,
have been pushed aside for a more
rigorous curricula.
Even the name has been
changed. The lowbrow "vocationa
education" has been replaced with
the lofty "career and technical
education
In Illinois, there are 336,000
high school students enrolled in
vocational education schools or
programs. That's 66 percent of
the state's high school population.
The students at Chicago's
agriculture school, one of 11 voca-
tional education schools in the
district, are studying to become
vets. But they spend as much time
in biology, math and physiology
courses as they do working with
the animals on the school's farm.
"It's not as easy as people
think it is said Willie Akerson,
16, as he stood in the barn in
knee-high rubber boots muck-
ing stalls and feeding animals
"You've got to be smart and work
really, really hard if you want to
do well in this school. It's the only
Chicago High School now participates in vocational education classes.
way to get into college and I need
to go to college
Vocational education has been
part of the nation's high school
fabric since at least 1917 when
the federal government created
the Vocational Kducation Act
and pumped $1.7 million into
programs across the country.
For decades, it was the
training ground for high school
students who planned to skip
college and head directly into
manufacturing and trade pro-
fessions. Back then, vocational
education graduates could land
jobs that paid enough to support
a family.

continued from Al
on to Samaritan 'a Purie, the
non-denominational evangeli-
cal Christian organization that
specializes in assisting commu-
nities devastated by war, poverty
disease and natural disaster.
According to Devine, last year
boxes were sent to Katrina vic-
tims along with communities in
the Middle Kast, India, Malawi
and Bolivia.
"Last year we raised about
$500 and put together 30 shoe-
boxes said Devine. "We are
hoping to have at least the same
success as last year if not more.
We've been distributing tons of
flyers across campus so hope-
fully more students will learn
about OCC and participate

MARSHALL
1. Control the Clock:
With Marshall's running game the Herd has the ability to
play keep-away offense. By establishing Ahmad Bradshaw
early, the Herd can keep the ECU offense on the sideline
and the ball out of James Pinkney's hands.
2. Special Teams:
Marshall's kicking game has been woeful this season. The
Herd kickers are just 5-of-l 1 on field goals and have missed
three extra points. Marshall will need to get points when it
can in a game that could see a lot of points scored.
3. Keep Rolling and Score Early:
Both teams want to score first, but it is more important
for the Herd to get on the board first to steal momentum
and take the expected sell-out crowd out of the game
This strategy worked for Tulsa and Marshall will
hope for similar results Saturday.
ECU-Marshall matchup
not short on storylines
RON CLEMENTS
SENIOR WRITER
Riding a three-game winning
streak, the ECU football team will wel-
come another team on a three-game
win streak Saturday when the Pirates
play host to Marshall on Senior Day at
Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium.
The game could fall to the back-
ground in storylines if both teams
weren't playing for a Conference
USA East Division title.
The matchup marks just the
second time, and first time since
1978, that Marshall has visited
Greenville since the tragic 1970
airplane crash that killed the entire
Marshall team and inspired the
movie Wt Are Marshall, which will
be released Dec. 22.
Saturday is also the final home
game of the season and is Senior Day,
which means the final home games
for quarterback James Pinkney,
corners Kasey Ross and Markeith
McQueen, safeties Jamar Flournoy
and Pierre Parker, wide receiver
Aundrae Allison and running back
Brandon Fractious, among others.
"We really just gotta stay focused
and not get caught up in the emo-
tions of playing in our last game in
Greenville said Fractious. "At the
end of the season, that's when you
reminisce. We can't get caught up
in the hype. That's for everyone else
to enjoy
Allison understands the mag-
nitude of the game and said he will
"seize every moment
"It's really
i mport ant,
especially
because it's
our last game in this stadium
said Allison, who leads the Pirates
with 44 receptions. "I'm just gonna
go out there and enjoy the crowd
like I always do
ECU Head Coach Skip Holtz
said Senior Day can lead to lacklus-
ter play because of stirring emotions.
"I worry about the seniors play-
ing well because they get so caught
up in the emotional ties Holtz said.
"They start reliving and thinking this
is my whole career, while they look
back on four years and family and
friends all coming in for this game.
Sometimes your seniors don't play
very well on this day because they
have a hard time blocking and tack-
ling with all the tears in their eyes
What the Pirates will surely
contend with is a Marshall squad
that is similar to ECU in more ways
than just winning streaks.
"We're two very similar football
teams that are coming down the
stretch Holtz said of the two teams
that both lost to West Virginia on
their ways to 1-3 starts. "They went
through that rough stretch early, but
I've been impressed with them recently.
I think they're an excellent team
Marshall (4-5, 3-2 C-USA)
began its season at 1-5, with the
lone win coming over Division I-
AA Hofstra, before reeling off three
straight wins over UAB, Memphis
and Tulane. In those games, the
Thundering Herd has scored a
combined 114 points.
ECU's offense scored 16 points
in the win at UCF while putting
up 20 the week before at Southern
Miss. In ECU's three previous
wins, the Pirates (5-4,4-2, C-USA)
scored more than 30 points. Holtz
knows his team will need a better
offensive performance than what
they've had the last two weeks to
beat Marshall.
"There were an awful lot of
good things from our offense, but
every time we got down into the
red-zone and near the 25-yard line
we seemed to sputter Holtz said.
"Sometimes it was a dropped

The ECU defense has been improving each week in stopping
the run and they must continue to do so this week against
a Marshall team that is tops in the conference in running
the ball with a running back that is seventh in the nation
in yards per game.
2. Win the Turnover Game:
The Pirates lead the conference in takeaways with 20, but
are only plus three in turnover margin. Marshall is minus
seven in turnover margin, but is riding a three-game winning
streak in which the Herd is plus two in those contests.
3. Field Position:
ECU has been giving up some big plays on returns so the
Pirates need to find ways to consistently flip the field on

to score.

OPINION
Seniors deserve proper send-off
Pirate Nation needs to
recognize 23 seniors
ERIC GILMORE
SPORTS EDITOR
Twenty-two men and a student
coach will be recognized with
their families on Bagwell Field
before the 1 p.m. kickoff against
Marshall. Four and live years of
commitment to advancing ECU
football will culminate with a
single ovation from the Pirate
Nation.
Years of practice time and lift-
ing sessions, hours of film, study
hall and midnight bus rides will
somehow be worth it. Looking
their families in the eyes, know-
ing they put in their total effort
is a special moment. The personal
salute from the Pirate Nation, a
roar from a single crowd is equally
as special.
"It's going to be emotional,
very exciting said senior reserve
wide receiver Will Bland. "When
we stand in front of the thousands
of people knowing this is it. This
is that last time we will be on this
field
The seniors have watched their
upperclassmen graduate, moving
onto to NFL training camps and
regular jobs. They've watched,
many played, while the previous
seniors were going through the
same emotions. But this crop is
different.
Arriving in campus following
!
the David Garrard era, which
was culminated by a GMAC bowl
berth, the program appeared on
solid footing.
"When I first signed here,
they were just getting back from
the bowl game playing Marshall
said Bland. "I'm like 'they're bowl
contenders They had a good
coach. Then, everything went
downhill. We started getting used
to losing
In five years, the program
has featured three different head
coaches, three defensive coordina-
tors and four offensive coordina-
tors.
They were embarrassed 51-10
by Southern Miss two seasons ago.
In the same year, the two-win team
clawed back against Memphis,
only to lose to a last-second field
goal. The program's rock bottom
was when N.C. State battered the
Pirates 52-14 in John Thompson's
final game, the second largest

Winning the conference or

for the Pirates at the beginning of

a distraction for his team.

Both coaches are expecting a
near sell-out for the 1 p.m. kickoff.
"I would be surprised if they

Snyder. "We are just going to have
to go in and play and have fun.
I think we have sold our whole
allotment of tickets for this game
so we will have a great crowd
there too
Holtz is hoping to feed off the
energy the way the Pirates have in
their previous home wins.
"There will be a lot of energy

about this game Holtz said. "It

ECU became a football joke,
instantly erasing credibility it has
sustained in two decades while
dropping out of the conference
realignment consideration at a
critical juncture.
"It's almost like you try to
push it back like it never even
happened said reserve offensive
lineman Lance Neisz.
Two seasons later, the same
nucleus of players have an oppor-
tunity to seek redemption against
Southern Miss, Memphis and

The Pirate faithful needs to
repay the players with deserving
cheers because this influential
group of student-athletes ended
the losing mentality. Their recent
three-game winning streak has
renewed the prestige of the Pirate

Neisz said. "Honestly, I wouldn't

Veterans' Day will mark the
progress of 23 men, who have
re-lighted the torch of ECU
football. From a national cup-
cake to a first-place standing
with a conference championship
berth on the line, the seniors'
careers have encompassed the
full gamut of emotions. All for
the exception of two a bowl
win and a conference title. If
the fans have hope of either two,
the least they can do is stand up

'Borat' for make benefit
glorious comedic nation
Film strives to be an
equal-opportunity
offender
BEN HARRIS
STAFF WRITER
For months there has been
nonstop hype about Borat. The
film lias easily become the most
talked about comedy of the year,
not necessarily because of the fact
that it is a great film but because of
its shockingly and extremely i rude
humor. Its incredible shock value
is undoubtedly the main reason
that so many people are looking
forward to seeing it Its distributor
has actually cut down the film's
opening screens to nearly half
of its original forecasts because
of the controversy surrounding
the film.
The movie feature: Sacha
Baron Cohen, who many people
recognize as the effeminate French
racer in Talhdega Sights, or as t In-
voice for the lemur on Uidiigascar.
He also has his own show, "Da
Ali G Show from which Borat
is based. Cohen is possibly one of
the best character actors in the
business and many people would
be surprised to know Cohen is a
successful graduate of Cambridge
University in Kngland.
Cohen's character, Borat, is a
Kazakh reporter who attempts to
come to America to find out about
our culture. Now before seeing
the movie, it is very important
to remember to go to the theater
with an extremely open mind and
also the mindset that thtfc is just a
movie and in no way reflects the
views of anyone involved in its
production.
Borat is an extreme anti-
Semitic. His beliefs come to light
early on when he participates in
the "Running of the Jew which is
similar to the running of the bulls
except participants run from giant
demon-like effigies of Jews. Borat's
hatred of Jews actually leads to
some of the more funny moments
of the movie. Borat gets trapped
in a bed and breakfast run by a
Jewish couple and hilarity ensues.
Also, Borat has some extreme
views about women. He has basi-
cally every bad notion about
women anyone could possibly
have. During the show, I actually
saw some women walk out due to
some of the things Borat said.
Homosexuals are also targeted
by Borat's uncultured humor.
This is no ordinary comedy, y
see BORAT page B6

Band Spotlight: Instrumental Quarter
When thinking of one of the many
bands that pass through Greenville
to play shows, the thought of a
singer, drummer and guitarist
mixed with a crowd of people
jumping around to the sounds of
rock tunes comes to mind.
Instrumental Quarter performed
at Spazzatorium Galleria on
Wednesday, Nov. 7 and they are
far from the typical pop-rock band.
For those of you unfortunate souls
who mtssed the show, they will be
performing all over the northeastern
United States, including places
such as Virginia, Indiana and
Kentucky, so keep an eye out for
their performances.
The band has been described as a
"moving group because members
of the group change frequently.
Instrumental Quarter released its
first album in 2003 entitled No
More Secrets, and recently released
its second, Traffic Jam, in late
August. The album has gotten many
people talking, and their talent is
definitely evident when listening to
any of the 13 tracks.
Check out myspace.com
instrumentalquarter for more
information about the band.

Rotation:
1967
One of the greatest
years of musicever?
JOHN BOSCO
STAFF WRITER
Being a music director at
WZMB, and being that I enjoy
being one, I'm usually ranting
and raving about what's good
and what's not-so-hot in the new
releases that are coming out.
But that's not to say that I am
completely disinterested in classic
rock, blues or folk, though.
Like many other students at
ECU, I'm a music fan who has an
iPod with tons of new and classic
albums alike.
And for some reason, lately the
plays on my iPod have been from
older artists, and, particularly,
from 1967.
Whileeing a music director
in 2006 is an awesome enough job,
I couldn't imagine what it must
have been like to be a music direc-
tor in college in the year 1967.
And after taking a look at
what was hot in 1967, maybe you'll
understand why just thinking
about it is blowing my mind.
Mitch Mitchell, Noel Red-
ding, and that guitar virtuoso you
might have heard of, Jimi Hendrix,
release Are Tou Experienced? in
1967 and it propels Hendrix to
international stardom.
The 1967 album plays more
like a greatest hits album than it
does the blues outfit's debut album.
Also in 1967, The Doors
release their self-titled debut
album. Imagine being a music
director, hearing about this band
The Doors, and listening to "Break
on Through (To the Other Side)"
or "Light My Fire
Even today, The Doors is con-
sidered one of the greatest debut
albums of all time by any band in

SHANNON DAVIS
STAFF WRITER
Gideon Yago, the face of
current events to millions of
young adults, is a news corre-
spondent for MTV's daily "10
to the hour" news segments and
creates documentaries aimed at
political topics.
Yago was born in Madison,
Wisconsin and raised in Queens,
New York. He first appeared on
MTV as a winning contestant
on "Idiot Savant a retired pop
culture game show, during hut
freshman year at Columbia Uni-
versity in New York City. With
no credentials in television or
journalism. Yago reported on
the McCain and Bush cam-
paigns. His success led to land-
ing a position as one of MTV's
news correspondents.
Starting out as a reporter
during the 200O presidential
election, Yago was the first
MTV news correspondent to
travel to Afghanistan, Kuwait
and Iraq. He traveled to Kuwait
City to film "Diary of Gideon
in Kuwait Inch was apart of
MTV's news coverage of the
conflict, he then returned to
the Middle East to report on
how life has changed for young
Iraqis and American soldiers
still stationed there in "Diary of
Gideon in Baghdad
To a generation that is
extremely knowledgeable about
media biases. Yago presents a
trendy look at politics and other
newsworthy events around the
world in an unbiased, informa-
tive format.
Yago has interviewed some
of the nation's foremost leaders
including Secretary of State
Colin Powell, former New York
City Mayor Rudolph Guiliani,
Ralph Nader, Bill Gates, Senator
John Kerry, President George
W. Bush and former President
Bill Clinton. Yago has worked
on award-winning documen-
taries on sexual health, the
September 11 attacks, fighting
in Afghanistan, hate crimes, the
2000 and 2004 elections, and
the war in Iraq
When asked how he started
doing the most political cov-
erage of all the MTV news
correspondents Yago replied,
"I'm kind of the only one here
who was willing to go sleep
in the desert when the wars
were gong on. I was really
in the right place at the right
time as the channel started
to take steps to have more

Yago described his time
spent in Iraq by stating, "I
mostly met a bunch of kids
from the lower income bracket
who were taking a job to either
pay for school or finance their
families or get themselves
out of their towns and work
but they never expected to
fight in a large scale conflict.

Thrashing into stereos everywhere
AARON BORREGO
STAFF WRITER
In late April, The Vacation released the self-
titled album to critical acclaim. The marked success
that was impending upon the quartet was surely
deserved and well earned.
Their infectious metalhardcoreclassic rock
blend captivates audiences everywhere they ven-
ture to play their
music. Couple this
with a very charis-
matic and reaction
inducing front man,
you have a sure
recipe for success.
The album's
opening track
"White noise"
booms you into
their obvious stage
performance and
presence While
being about tin-
over saturation of
current technolo-
gies such as the
Internet and TV,
the music is incred-
ibly hard driven.
The guitar riffs
resemble that of
some of the best
music from the 1970s and 1980s. The song pos-
sesses hard driving guitars, booming bass and
sing-along type lyrics. This is found on much of
the album to the delight of its listeners.
The "unclean" singing style of their front
man lends this band some underground appeal
to those who like the "bravura" sound. Another
such song to show this type of song approach is
"Destitute Prostitutes
What is interesting about this album is that the
style doesn't remain constant and does vary based
on some of the band's influences. The Ramonap and
bands from that particular punkhardcore scene are
reflected in their overall no-stops-pulled-approach.
"Make up your mind" is just that type of punk
sound that doesn't stop till the final bell is rung. This
would entail the song is unclear and doesn't really
make sense too many. This is completely untrue to
those who appreciate 1980s punk.
One thing that needs to be emphasized is the
pure animal magnetism of this album's appeal. The
entire album is unrelenting from beginning to end.
The singing is awesome in the sense you can hear the
passion of the front
man as he belts
out these tunes.
After listening
to this album, one
would be inclined
to want to see these
boys perform live.
One could imagine
this band is more
of a live stage act
capable of delivering
one of the best per-
formances ever seen.
Anyway, back to
the songs. "No hard
feelings" is a bit of a
change of pace from
the hard driving
punk songs earlier in
the album. This song
actually reminds
me of the band Jet.
Overall, I give
this album an A The intensity of the music coupled
with the previously mentioned animal magnetism set
up the band and their live performances. Also, it is
very nice to see some new music out there that refers
back to simpler music at the grassroots level.
I hope everyone listens to this album or goes to
see a show these guys are playing in the near future.
I'm sure you won't be disappointed. You may even
like them as much as I do.

Borat celebrates with his neighbors in Kazakhstan before his planned visit to America in this comedy.
Borat is just nonstop joke after
joke, and nearly all of them work
with perfection. Cohen's ability
to stay in character, even in the
most awkward moments, is key
to the movie's success. He literally
ceases to be Cohen and he turns
into an entirely different person.
If someone sees a movie with Tom
Hanks, that person can always
look at the screen and still see
Hanks even though he is playing
a different person. With Cohen,
it is like Borat is actually a real
person who is trying to make a
serious documentary.
If anything, Borat shows the
lack of an American sense of
humor. He shows how unable we
are to sometimes laugh at our-
selves, even though sometimes
the best laughs are the ones you
get laughing at yourself. Some
of the people he meets on his
journey will make you wonder if
Americans have lost that valuable
sense of humor.
I predict this movie will
become a cult classic. While it
may not make much money right
away because of the decision to cut
back its screens, the movie will
eventually make a large sum due
to word of mouth. The movie is a
comedic masterpiece for so many
reasons and one of the funniest
movies I've seen in years.

continued from B4
There was this incredible sense
of innocence; you realize that
you were going to get thousands
of new vets, that you were going
to get this generation of new
veterans 18, 19, 20-year-olds, all
these boys you see coming home
now and at that time I was 23
so 1 was the same age as a lot of
these guys. And that is what we
had on air
The highlight of Yago's
career came this October, when
he was afforded the opportunity to
address the student population of
Towson University in Maryland.
ECU is pleased to announce
that the Student Development
Office is bringing Gideon Yago to
talk about his experiences report-
ing from Iraq and other war torn
countries for MTV in the Hendrix
Theater today, Nov. 9 at 8 p.m. His
presentation is open to the public
and to anyone who is interested
in learning about his journalistic
experiences.

continued from B4
any genre.
The Beatles' eighth album,
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club
Band, is widely acclaimed as the
standard for psychedelic rock
upon its initial release in the
summer of 1967.
It is instantly recognized that
the Beatles' impact on pop and
rock music from Sgt. Pepper's is
going to be permanent - from
the artwork to the recording
techniques and all the way down
to the music itself.
By 1967, there's no doubt that
the Beatles are not just a boy band
after teenage girls.
And not to mention that later,
in the winter of 1967, they'd
release Magical Mystery Tour, an
album with tracks that are equally
as experimental as those found on
Sgt. Pepper's.
And, by the way, 1967 also
saw the Velvet Underground and
Nico's epic collaboration (in part,
thanks to Andy Warhol).
Though banned at many sta-
tions around the country for it's
highly controversial content like
drugs, prostitution and S&M, The
Velvet Underground 6? Nico is con-
sidered one of the most influential
albums of all time - members
Lou Reed, John Cale and Nico
would go on to influence a host
of underground, alternative music
and even a good amount of today's
indie rock scene.
Well, maybe you still wouldn't
want to trade this year for 1967,
that's understandable.
But maybe it's about time you
update your music library with
some sounds from the past.

One out of five adults finds
themselves ss the designated
"caregiver" for a loved one who
can't manage alone. Recent
findings reveal that this role can
be precarious - for both parties.
While trying to do it all, you
can become overwhelmed and
risk your own health. As this
happens, the level of care you're
providing may also suffer.
Fortunately, there is help and
relief out there for both of you.
