NEWS EDITOR
Steve Ballard, 55-year-old
provost and vice chancellor for
Academic Affairs at the Univer-
sity of Missouri-Kansas City was
announced ECU's new chancellor
at the Board of Governors meeting
Friday.
"On behalf of the search com-
mittee and the Board of Trustees,
we are elated with President
Broad's selection Ballard has
an outstanding record of leader-
ship and accomplishments which
will translate into broader and
more rapid success for ECU said
Jim Talton, chair of the Board of
Trustees and chair of the Chancel-
lor Search Committee.
Ballard will succeed Interim
Chancellor William Shelton, who
filled the chancellor position
after William Muse resigned in
September. Ballard is scheduled
to take over for Shelton and start
receiving his $215,000 salary on
June 1, but he will make his move
to Greenville sometime in May.
"This is a career aspiration for
me said Ballard.
Steve Ballard was introduced as ECU'S chancellor Friday.
Appalachian State University students Emily McDermott and Dorothy Andrews oppose the tuition increase Friday.
NC State students David Woolard and Adam Olejarczyk question how
they will afford the rising cost of their educations.
Unique slogans, like Michael Pinnix's from
Winston Salem State University, abounded.
Student protests fail, tuition increase approved

Nearly 200 students
from all 16 UNC-
system schools gath-
ered in front of the doors of the
UNC General Administration
Building in Chapel Hill Friday
to protest the $300 campus-
based tuition increase at the
Board of Governors meeting,
but board members voted
to amend and pass tuition
increases for the 2004-05 aca-
demic year.
ECU and 12 other schools
will be affected by an in-state
increase of $225 in the 2004-
05 academic year, while in-
state tuition will rise $250 a
year at the UNC-Chapel Hill
and NC State. The NC School
of Arts will be affected by a
$450 in-state increase.
Out-of-state tuition will
climb an additional $300 at
all schools with the exception
of UNC-Chapel Hill, where it
will increase $1,500 and the
NC School of Arts, where it
will increase $600.
"I believe everyone in this
room wants tuition to be as low
as it can be, but we do not want
to sacrifice quality said BOG
member Charles Mercer.
Board members said the
increase compensates for
state budget reductions and
improves classroom quality in
all 16 schools.
The board also passed a
student fee increase for ECU
of $48 in addition to the $50
SCT Banner fee increase, rais-
ing fees by 8 percent.
The staggered tuition
increase planned for ECU'S
Brody School of Medicine was
passed at the meeting.
A $1,425 increase will affect
first year medical students
attending Brody during the
2004-OS, 2005-06 and 2006-
07 academic years.
The increase requires
second, third and fourth year
medical students attending
Brody in 2004-05, 2005-06
and 2006-07 to pay a fee
increase of $925.
Revenue collected from
ECU's tuition increase will be
used in the university's high-
need areas. The funds will
expand the academic advising
system to accommodate more
students, attract and retain fac-
ulty members and contribute
to need-based financial aid.
Despite countless signs
and captivating chants from
students at all 16 UNC-
system universities, the
800 private struggles cap-
tured in "Personal Stories"
are destined to come true.
"Personal Stories" is book
detailing how tuition increases
have and would affect students
and their families.
Each member of the BOG
was presented with the fin-
ished book in February, which
was assembled with the help
of Student Government Asso-
ciation representatives and the
UNC Association of Student
Governments.
Many students, like l.inily
McDermott from Appalachian
State University, attended
the protest and waved signs
detailing the pages they were
featured on in the book.

Fee Breakdown
Student Fees
-Student fees will increase by 8
percent for a total of $98.

The Board of Governors voted not
to Impose a system-wide tuition
increase In addition to the campus-
based increase.
Brody School of Medicine
-First year medical students attend-
ing Brody during the 2004-05,
2005-06 and 2006-07 academic
years will have a $1,425 Increase.
-Second, third and fourth year
medical students attending Brody
In 2004-05 will pay a fee increase
of $925.
Though the 22,000 students
enrolled at ECU and the 14,000
at UMKC differ, Ballard said the
larger enrollment size brings
great opportunity for university
advancement.
Ballard said he plans to
use his understanding of the
complexity of higher educa-
tion to fill vacant upper-level
leadership positions at ECU.
He said he would work to
quickly fill the vacant athletics
director position.
Nick Floyd, interim director of
athletics, was appointed to tempo-
rarily fill the position when former
director, Mike Hamrick accepted
the athletics director position
at the University of Nevada-Las
Vegas.
Ballard said he would also start
a national search to fill the vacant
provost position, after ECU'S
former provost, William Swart, was
reassigned to a faculty position in
September.
Before taking his position at
UMKC in 2001, Ballard served as
the vice provost for research and
dean of the graduate college from
1998-2001 at Bowling Green State
University in Ohio.

ECU police, housing react
to early semester violence
New security measures
include increased
patrols, dorm alarms
KEITH S. BYERS
STAFF WRITER
The College Hill area has
been the focus of violent crimes,
but officials have vowed to make
the campus safer after recent
crime incidents.
The most recent crimes
include an armed robbery
that occurred at Belk Hall on
March 10 in which two assail-
ants robbed two students, who
were not injured, at gunpoint.
The next day a student in Scott
hall reported a man wearing a
ski mask came into his room
at 4 a.m pointed a gun at his
head and then vanished without
taking anything.
ECU police said there are no
leads to the suspect in the rob-
bery case, but the gun has been
traced to a Greenville residency.
"The owner reported the
stolen firearm to the Greenville
Police Department. We are inves-
tigating further in an attempt to
identify a suspect said Robert
C. Stroud, ECU police chief.
Stroud said he could not advise
as to whether the two incidents
were related.
There were also two dorm
rapes within less than a month
of each other, an armed robbery
and a stolen handgun found on
a shower stall floor.
Stroud said patrols have been
increased, but since students have
been away on Spring Break, they
haven't be readily available to
offer any new information.
Aaron F. Lucier, interim
associate director of technology
for Campus Living, said special
alarms costing $350 have been
ordered that will notify ECU
police of dorm doors being held
open for too long and will pro-
duce an audible alarm. The alarm
is called the "Monitor
At press time, Lucier said
an order of Monitors had been
received and were being installed
on College Hill, but he could
not specify which dorms have
received them.
Lucier said the Monitor device
will be put near the bottom of the
door under the advisement of a
locksmith and then have its reac-
tion time calibrated.
"The alarm is quite loud

Defense: Twisted
childhood merits lesser
conviction in murder
NASHVILLE (AP) - Prosecution and
defense lawyers agreed Monday
that Andre Edwards abducted, raped
and killed a Virginia woman nearly
three years ago, and each side told
jurors they should focus on why the
tragedy occurred
Closing arguments from the defense
focused on Edwards' wretched
childhood. Prosecutors said the
defendant's background had no
bearing on his ability to plan and
commit the crime against the young
mother and her 11 -month-old son on
June 30,2001. When he was 6 years
old. Edwards was given by his mother
to pedophiles for their pleasure in
return for money to buy liquor and
drugs, according to evidence.
He also was intoxicated from alcohol
and cocaine used eight hours
before the kidnapping and lacked
mental capacity to plan the crime,
the defense said
GOP candidates offer differing
views on N.C. lottery
RALEIGH (AP) - Republicans
competing for the GOP gubernatorial
nomination are showing more
flexibility on the issue of a lottery
than they did four years ago. but few
seem to view the issue as a lynchpin
in this year's campaign.
Four of six major GOP candidates
make similar arguments against a
numbers game.
Democratic Gov Mike Easley has
made an "education lottery' one
of his leading policy initiatives, but
has failed to get authorization for
a voter referendum through the
Legislature during his first three
years in office
Despite polls showing a majority of
voters supporting a vote, prospects
for one in 2004 appear dim. House
members continue to strongly oppose
a referendum, which they voted down
in 2002, and legislative leaders want
to finish this years session before the
July 20 primary.
National
Prosecutors open trial of
Oklahoma City bombing
conspirator with attempt to link
him to blast
McALESTER. Okla. (AP) - Prosecutors
in Terry Nichols' state murder trial
began their attempt to put the
Oklanoma City bombing conspirator
on death row by linking him to the
Wast - even though he was more than
200 miles away.
FBI lawyer Mary Jasnowski testified
Monday that agents searching
Nichols' Kansas home three days after
the 1995 bombing found a receipt for
2,000 pounds of ammonium nitrate
fertilizer, a main ingredient of the
Oklahoma City bomb.
Agents also found four 55-gallon
drums of the type prosecutors say
were used to make the bomb, and
traces of the bomb ingredient outside
Nichols' home Prosecutors allege
Nichols also stole blasting caps to
set off the explosion that killed 168
people
The testimony came after prosecutor
Lou Keel opened his case by
arguing that Nichols hated the U.S.
government and worked hand-
in-hand with Timothy McVeigh in
assembling and detonating the "huge,
monstrous bomb
Restricting calories increases life
span In mice, researchers say
WASHINGTON (AP) - A study in mice
suggests that a low-calorie diet could
help extend life even if the dietary
change doesn't start until old age.
The study, appearing this week in the
Proceedings of the National Academy
of Sciences, showed that mice at the
relatively advanced age of 19 months
that were placed on a restricted
calorie diet lived 42 percent longer
than litter mates who continued to eat
a standard diet.
Other studies have shown that
young mice put on a low-calorie diet
live much longer than mice fed the
standard fare But the new research
suggests that it is never too late to
enjoy a life-extension benefit by
reducing calories.
Stephen R Spindler of the
University of California, Riverside,
leader of a team conducting the
research, said there is little evidence
yet that dietary restrictions will
extend human life, but in mice, at
least, sensible eating even at older
ages clearly has a longevity benefit
He said a 19-month-old mouse is
the age equivalent of 60 to 65 years
in humans.
World
Taiwan's president calls for a
vote recount, says he'll accept
new results
TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) - Looking weak
and tired just days after he was
shot, Taiwan's leader appeared
in public Tuesday for the first
time since his disputed re-
election victory and he called for a
vote recount that he promised to
accept "100 percent"
As President Chen Shui-bian gave
his televised address, the shouts
and chants of thousands of protesters
could be heard in the background.
The crowd has been camping out in
front of the Presidential Office since
Saturday's tight vote, demanding a
recount.
Chens challenger, Lien Chan, insists
that the election was marred by
numerous irregularities, though he
has provided little evidence to prove
this Lien has also suggested that
the mysterious shooting that lightly
wounded Chen one day before the
polls may have been staged to gain
sympathy votes
Militants attack military
convoy hunting al-Qalda
in Pakistan, killing 12
WANA. Pakistan (AP) - Attackers
ambushed a Pakistani army convoy
as it moved to join a counterterrorism
offensive against al-Qaida militants
near the Afghan border, killing at
least 12 soldiers and wounding 15,
officials said Tuesday.
The attackers fired rockets that hit at
least six army trucks In the ambush
near Sarwakai, about 30 miles east
of Wana, the main town of the South
Waziristan tribal region.
Some of the trucks were carrying
fuel and were destroyed by fire in
the attack Monday, a government
official in Sarwakai said on condition
of anonymity. He said 12 soldiers were
killed and 15 were wounded.
Army spokesman Maj. Gen.
Shaukat Sultan confirmed the attack
and said army troops cordoned
off the area to search for the
assailants, but he declined to give
more details.

said Luder,
"You leave the door open for
more than x-y- seconds, then the
alarm goes Off.
l.ucier said because the doors
are hydraulic and dOM slowly, the
alarm would have to be calibrated
lor the safest duration.
"We have gotten a small order
of them Monitors, and they are
being installed - we are moving as
last as we can l.ucier said.
In a Feb. 19 press conference
(iarrie Moore, I'll.IX, vice chancel-
lor for Student Life said, "We will
(lose off open areas at designated
limes within the residence halls,
sue h as wash areas, and will assess
adding panic buttons throughout
residence halls in designated
areas
l.ucier said it might take some
time before panic buttons in the
dorms become a reality, lie said
tile decision might rest on whether
other universities decided to use
them extensively.
Moore also said that new fenc-
ing would be added to the wooded
area behind Jones Mall to restrict
the use of the area as access to
ii i grounds. Construction has
yet to begin,
"The bid is out with the
contractor, and we expect con-
struction to begin over the next
month l.ucier said.
Luder said although Campus
living will be paying for part of the
project, Facilities Services would
be hacking the construction.
Plans for adding 35 surveil-
lance cameras in the College Kill
area was also announced at the
press conference.
"It's a good idea, but we are
not aware of any schools that do
that extensively l.ucier said.
"Campus Living, in consulta-
tion with the ECU police, feels
there are better ways to address the
security concerns. We are working
to add even more securit y staff. We
are moving on adding cameras asa
more permanent solution l.uc icr
said.
After the rape that occurred at
Belk Hall, F.CU Housing Services
sent out memos to all residents
In the dorms, l.ucier said similar
memos were sent out after the two
roblieries.
"We sent a flyer out to students
in lielk and Scott the day after the
last incident, since they were
the halls in which the incidents
occurred. We feel that the informa-
tion st udents need toknow wascov-
ered in the first letters Lucier said.
Still, some students' parents
feel safer having their children
living in a dorm rather than an
apartment.
"Even it she lives in an
apartment with one roommate,
nobody would know if anything
happened said Sima Hope,
mother of Belk resident and fresh-
man undecided major Jamie Hope.
Jamie said having eight people
live in her suite makesa safer living
arrangement.
The only time Jamie said she
ever feels scared is when she walks
back to Belk Hall after a night class.

Our View
We encour-
age stu-
dents to get
involved in
their own
safety as
well, and
In the last few months, two rapes, a fire and an
unidentified handgun in a shower stall have left
the campus community questioning the safety
of residence halls and university grounds.
Also, before ECU students traveled to their
respective Spring Break destinations, two
students were held at gunpoint at Belk
residence hall.
resident stu-
In a Feb.19 press conference in response to
safety concerns, university officials promised
cameras, letters to parents, fences, additional
dents are the Police presence and residence hall safety
programs.
first line of
defense.
But when TEC recently checked the progress
of administration's safety promises, many of the
promises were behind schedule.
And although administration did respond to the
recent robbery with another press conference,
we believe officials need to stop the delay and
take real action before we add another incident
to this semester's long list of crime.
We encourage students to get involved in their
own safety as well, and resident students are
the first line of defense.
Every day, residents face the violation called
"piggy-backing - following or propping resi-
dence hall doors for resident and non-resident
students
We are asking students not to allow people to
follow you into your residence hall. This may
be one of the most beneficial steps you take in
protecting yourself and your neighbors.
And for all students, just be aware. Be alert
to your surroundings. Take note of suspicious
activity and report it to the police.
For administrators, we're happy to see you
have sent letters to parents and some
residence halls are receiving audible alarms,
but what about everything else you promised
our campus community?
We appreciate your efforts, but as the list of
crime continues to grow, we would like to see
you work a little harder to fulfill those promises
to our campus - before anymore innocent
students become victims.
The purpose of TEC's opinion pages is to invoke
conversation in ECU'S community. To respond to an
opinion on this page, please send your letter, with your contact
information for verification, to editor@theeastcarolinian.com.
I would like to share the fol-
lowing numbers with you:
(1)45.4; (2) 59.6; (3) 71.2; (4)
76.2; (5) 76.1
And their coinciding num-
bers:
(1) 32.3; (2) 49.8; (3) 64.1; (4)
69.9; (5) 64.9
Anybody recognize them?
They do seem innocent
enough, don't they
They arc just a hunch of
numbers on one sheet ol a col-
lege newspaper. Maybe even
another set of insignificant sta-
tistics nobody cares about. They
are nothing that concerns you,
right?
Wrong.
These innocuous looking
numbers represent an immense
amount of power. These num-
bers control or influence a large
portion of your life.
Ilnse are voter statistics
from the November 2000 elec-
tion broken down by age group.
I he lirst line is the percentage of
eligible people who registered to
vote. The second line is the per-
centage of registered voters who
got off their lazy butts and actu-
ally voted. The age groups break
down as follows:
(1) 18-24; (2) 25-44; (3) 45-
64; (4) 65-74; and (5) 75.
Only 45.2 percent of the eli-
gible 18 to 24-year-olds in this
country bothered to register to
vote in the 2000 elections. Only
a paltry 32.3 percent of those who
diil register could take timeout of
their self-centered lives to vote. To
put this simply, of the over 26.7
million eligible 18 to 24-year-
olds, just more than 8.6 million
voted. Talk about pathetic.
I know that the majority of
current students were not old
enough to vote in the 2000 elec-
tions, but simple statistics (and
historical data! indicates that
some of our juniors and seniors
are part of the majority ol young
people who couldn't be bothered
with voting. Why? Ask them.
They shouldn't he that hard to run
down. I usually find that they're
the ones complaining the loudest
at ut how "bad" things are in this
country. Go figure.
So, what about the rest of you
There Is another presidential ele -
tion this year. Are you going to
vote? Are you registered? Do you
even care? If not, why?
Look at the numbers at the
beginning of this article again.
Do you know what they really
represent? They represent a
bunch of uninterested, lazy
people who are abrogating
control of their futures to dino-
saurs (fossils, fogies, old farts,
whatever) like me of the older
generations. We are the ones
deciding how you will live for
the next 20 to SO years (that's
how long it will take most of us
to shuffle off this mortal plain).
The young people who did not
vote in 2000 essentially decided
to let Mommy and Daddy keep
making their decisions for them.
Is that what you plan to do this
year, too?
Registering to vote is one of
the most important things you
can possibly do. It's so easy,
too, whether you live in North
Carolina or not. Vou can register
at any post office. You can walk
into your local election hoard
and register. If you live outside
North Carolina, you can request
and mail in registrations or reg-
ister the next time you go home.
But if you are unable to do that,
certain campus groups can help
you register, too.
The Campus Democrats
have been out several times this
semester doing voter registration
drives. The Campus Republicans
will be doing the same as soon as
they get organized. What could
be easier than registering to vote
between classes?
Not a Democrat or Republi-
can? No excuse. You don't have
to vote tor the candidates of the
party you are registered with.
You never have. So, you Green
Party people, Libertarians, Inde-
pendents, Constitutionalists or
whatever party you care to align
yourself with, register with
either group the next time they
are out. Then vote lor whoever
you want.
There is absolutely no excuse
for you not to register and vote
in the upcoming elections il you
are eligible. Unless you enjoy
having other people control
your life, that is. The choice, or
not, is up to you.
Letter to the Editor
Dear Editor,
My letter is in regards to the
fact that Mr. Jim Dishaw of the
Hospitality Management depart-
ment won't be returning to this
university.
Mr. Dishaw has brought so
much to the Hospitality depart-
ment over the years.
I am the third person from
our family to be interested in
this major, and it was because of
Mr. Dishaw's wealth of informa-
tion and experience that I became
interested.
Our two daughters graduated
in the hospitality program, and
through them, I would hear about
Mr. Dishaw's teachings. I am so
thankful I joined the program last
fall and could have the pleasure
of being in at least one of Mr.
Dishaw's classes.
He has traveled throughout
the world and has hospitality con-
tacts in every place he's been.
He's so great to share those
contacts with students in help-
ing them find just the right
internships and the perfect jobs.
He has passion for his teaching
and he gives 100 percent to every
student.
I knew he had passion when I
walked into his class the first day
of the semester.
lie personally went to every
student in the classroom, shook
their hand, introduced himself,
handed them a copy of his syl-
labus and welcomed them to his
class, (his syllabus is the most
thorough one I have ever seen.)
Mr. Dishaw has been very
influential in the hospitality
industry in getting scholar-
ships donated to the Hospitality
department.
Many of the students who
benefited from those scholar-
ships wouldn't have been able to
stay in school had not it been for
those scholarships. Rumor has it
many of those contributors will
no longer contribute to the pro-
gram due to Mr. Dishaw's future
absence at ECU.
Mr. Dishaw has served as the
HMA adviser for many years.
How many other professors
would be up attending the HMA
officers' meeting at 6 a.m. every
Tuesday? Not many, I'm sure! His
dedication to that organization
will live forever in the minds of
those who served with him as an
HMA officer.
Sure, the hospitality program
will continue, but it will never be
the same.
How sad for the Hospitality
department at ECU, but most of
all how sad for the students in
that program.
What's that old saying? Our
loss is someone else's gain. Rock
n' Roll, Mr. Dishaw, and carry
on.

Opinions in Brief
The morning-after pill
ikRI)�There's every indication
that I he food and Drug Administra-
tion is struggling over whether to
allow the so-called morning-after
pill lolx'soklovertlit'iniiMter. After
.in advisory panel overwhelmingly
recommended that move in Decem-
ber, the FDA, under intense pressure
from conservative and religious
groups, recently announced that
it would delay the decision for 90
days to gather more information
on the pill.
Last month an Illinois House
committee approved a proposal
that would allow such pills, which
prevent pregnancy in the first hours
and days after intercourse, to lx' sold
without a doctor's prescription by
pharmacists. I Mike the broad EDA
plan that would allow the pills to be
stix ked on drugstore shelves, under
the proposed Illinois law the pills
would still be kepi Ix'hind the
pharmacy counter.
Stwral states already allow
pharmacists to sell the ills with-
out a doctor's prescription, and
Illinois should join them. Absent
FDA approval of over-the-counter
sales the bed outcome, the state
should lx' doing everything it can
to lower the barriers that present
women from using safe and
effective morning-alter pills. The
potential benefits arc significant,
liy avoiding unwanted pregnan-
cies at the earliest possible stage,
the pill can reduce the number
of abortion procedures that are
performed.
In recent months the delate
over the EDA proposal has veered
from science and policy into the
realm of religion and abortion
politics. Some supporters fear
that even with the lopsided advi-
sory committee vote, the EDA will
reject the recommendation.
that would be a shame. The
morning-after pill, first approved
in 1998, isessentiallysafeand effec-
tive with minimal side effects, the
IDA has said. I he "Han H" brand
pill, which is under EDA scrutiny,
contains a higher dose of the
same hormones found in regular
birth-control pills. The pill is most
effective if taken within 24 hours
of intercourse, although it's still
largely effective up to 72 hours. In
some instances, it delays ovulation
and prevents fertilization ol an egg.
In other instances, it prevents the
Implantation of a fertilized egg in
the uterus.
Some argue that since a dcxtor's
prescription is required for birth-
control pills, it should also be
required for morning-after pills.
But the nature of emergency con-
traception suggests that a doctor
might not lx readily available to
write a prescription.
What also worries many oppo-
nents is that the morning-after pill
would be more available to teen-
agers, without parental consent or a
prescription. That's a real concern.
The availability of the morning-
after pill will not, and should not,
change the messages to teens from
parents, mentors and other adults:
I o not engage in sex until you are
mature enough to assess and to
handle the physical, emotional
and moral ramifications of that.
Do not engage in unsafe sex. The
morning-after pill is not a routine
substitute tor birth control; It does
re t protect you from sexually trans-
mitted diseases.

ECU professor's work links race, preterm birth
Three-year study aims
to determine cause
TABATHA JAMES
STAFF WRITER
I'K-term birth is currently t in-
most urgent problem in mater-
nal-child health in the United
States and in North Carolina,
but an M U professor's work may
help reduce harmful outcomes.
School of Nursing assistant
professor Kliabeth Jesse, 1'h.O
is working to understand more
alHHit preterm births. The knowl-
edge she discovers will be used
to develop strategies to combat
the situation and help find pre-
M-ntative measures tailored to
different ethnic groups.
Preterm births occur prior
to .57 weeks of completed gesta-
tion. Jesse said preterm infants
have increased risk for neonatal
morbidity, neurodevelopmental
and respiratory problems, along
with other long-term disabilities
and death.
Jesse said preterm birth is
the predominant cause of infant
mortality, and North Carolina
has one of the highest preterm
birth rates in the United States.
she said the infant mortality rate
here is higher than the national
average.
"African-Americans suffer
from this problem even more
Jesse said.
"They have the highest
incidence of preterm birth, low
birth weight infants and infant
mortality. We are also plan-
ning a focus group where we
ask pregnant women what they
think would help them if they
were at high psychosoc ial risk in
pregnancy
Jesse said psychological
needs in pregnancy are probably
more important for low-income
women because they are more
likely to suffer from mental
health problems, adverse lifestyle
choices, postpartum depression
and subsequent tragedy.
These factors influence
health risk behaviors like smok-
ing, alcohol and drug use, which
increase the incidence of low
birth weight infants and pre-
term birth.
"Cigarette smoking during
pregnancy is considered the most
modifiable cause of adverse birth
outcomes in the United States
Jesse said.
Karly and consistent prena-
tal care is important to detect
and prevent preterm labor and
birth.
"Quitting smoking and using
drugs and alcohol, along with
eating well and gaining weight
during pregnancy can reduce the
likelihood of delivering a baby
early Jesse said.
However, even if an expect-
ant mother does everything cor-
rectly, there is still a chance of
delivering a preterm infant.
"Ultimately there are no
guarantees for a perfect outcome
in pregnancy, but she a pregnant
woman can increase her odds of
a healthy pregnancy by reducing
her risks Jesse said.
The study's duration is
scheduled to last three years,
and The National March of
Dimes Rirth Defect Foundation
donated (160,535 to assist with
the study.
"The grant received from
the March of Dimes will help
provide different supplies, such
as the questionnaires that will
be used in the focus groups, and
to help pay for student salaries
said Martha Engelke, Ph.D
associate dean for research and
scholarship at ECU'S School of
Nursing.

Tuition
from page A1
North (Carolina Governor Mike
lasley inspired students protest-
ing the increase in a letter to the
BOG that stated, "If the tuition
increases are adopted, tuition will
more than double at several of
our campuses since 1999-2000.
This trend cannot continue with-
out jeopardizing access
Many of I he students attend-
ing the protest were juniors and
seniors. The majority claimed
they were fighting for incoming
students and current freshmen
and sophomores who still have
time left at their respective uni-
versities.

When selecting a pass-

When conversing with
someone who messages

I ast night's genre was country music, and I have to admit, I

To avoid confusion, it is
important to become familiar
with the AIM lingo. Common
abbreviations every user should
know are TTYL or "talk to you
later BRB or "be right back
()l; or "oh, I see" and LOL or
"laugh out loud Also, typing a
message in all caps indicates you
are yelling at that person.
"Instant messenger is my
connection to friends, family and
acquaintances that live anywhere
in the world said Matt Smith,
sophomore chemistry and biol-
ogy major.
AIM is also an avenue for
expressing your creativity. You
can use different colored fonts
and backgrounds to express your
personality. Black and white is
boring and strains the eyes. If you
are a funny person, then Comic
Sans is a good font to use.
Create new and original
away messages. When users are
not messaging, they tend to scan
away messages on their buddy list.
Don't be that user who is skipped
because of the same boring "1 am
away from my computer right
now" default away message.
When creating away mes-
sages, use your own personal say-
ings and jokes. Everyone enjoys
a great away message. Mean or
disgusting away messages are
unnecessary - no user wants to
feel bad after reading an away
message. If you are having a bad
day, it's best to sign off.
You shouldn't include per-
sonal information in your away
messages either - no one really
wants to know if you have gone
to the bathroom. It's also not a
wonderful idea to include exactly
where you are going in case you
have an AIM stalker.
The number one rule with
away messages is to never use
them to fight with someone or
let someone know you are mad
at them. This is childish and
stupid.
One thing many users over-
look is their buddy profile. Every
user should have a buddy profile.
The profile is just a little extra
space for users to write what's
on their mind. Many people use
famous quotes, life experiences,
song choruses and jokes in their
profiles. Don't get sucked into put-
ting your personal information
in a profile, though, it's unsafe to
list your cell phone number and
home number. You don't want an
AIM stalker to become a phone
stalker.
AIM users are never sure of
whose buddy lists they are on,
so limit personal information. If
someone hasn't given you bis or
her screen name but you know
it, don't put it on your buddy list
without permission. It's an inva-
sion of privacy.
On a brighter note, take
advantage of many different
smiley faces. Insert smiley faces
when you need to convey an
emotion that can't be put into
words.
Be sure to Include a buddy
icon as well. A buddy icon is a
picture always Included on your
text box when instant messaging.
A great place to download buddy
icons is the AIM Web site. Many
different buddy icons switch every
month or so, so be sure and stay
updated.
Another great thing to have
Included in a buddy profile is a
special link. A special link could
be anything from a friend quiz to
a favorite Wei) site, lake advantage
of that space to Include something
entertaining for your friends.
Be aware of what links con-
sist of because some may contain
Trojans or viruses that will harm
your software. To ensure that
this doesn't happen, always have
a program that will scan your soft-
ware for viruses such as Norton
AntiVirus software.

ECU falls in first
conference series
BRENT WYNNE
STAFF WRITER
After the baseball team took
three games from Charleston
Southern and pounded Mar-
shal! in a weekday affair, the
lHth-rankcd Pirates were on fire
over Spring Break and headed
into last weekend's showdown
with number 14 Tulane.
The Green Wive stumbled !n
game one but doused the I'irates
with heavy hitting to take games
two and three from ECU to win
the series.
Behind the bat of Trevor
Lawhorn, the Piratessqueaked out
a 6-3 victory in the series opener.
The talented second-base-
man was zero for his last 18 head-
ing into the series with Tulane.
Needless to say, he broke out in
a big way.
Lawhorn belted two home
runs, the most significant one
coming in the bottom of the
sixth to give the Pirates their first
lead. The sixth inning shot was
never In doubt to Lawhorn.
"I kind ol celebrated early, but
I knew it wasgone said lawhorn.
The two homers off the bat of
lawhorn marked his seventh and
eighth blasts of the season.
Jamie Paige also went deep
for the first lime and Ryan Jones
continued his offensive explo-
sion, tallying his seventh bomb
of the season.
Brody Taylor held the
(ireen Wave in check, allowing
only three runs through seven
innings of work and striking out
five to pick up the win.
With the win, the Pirates ran
their undefeated home record to
an incredible 18-0.
The celebration was short-
lived, however, as Tulane struck
back on Saturday, taking a 14-10
11th inning thriller from the
Pirates to even the series.
(ireg Din I hit a solo home
run in the top of the 11th, which
proved to be the game-winner as
the Pirates failed to score in the
home half of the inning.
The Pirates squandered a
chance in the bottom of the
10th as Brett Undgren singled to
open the inning only to get
picked off of first base. The
I'irates followed with back-to-
back singles, but the inning was
cut short when Lawhorn struck
out and twin brother, Darryl,
popped up to end the threat.
Head Coach Randy Mazey
was not pleased with his team's
performance.
"We really set the game of
baseball back about 10 years
with some of the plays we made
out there. It was just one of our
worst efforts of the year said

ECU basketball fan asks, 'What if?'
A summary of the
season of despair
ROBERT LEONARD
STAFF WRITER
As I sit and reflect on this
past season of ECU basketball, I
experience a mix of emotions. I
feel excitement about where this
program has come from but more
importantly where it's going. I
teel disappointment because it
could have been a magical season.
Most importantly, I feel sadness
due to one of the most frustrating
seasons I have ever seen a team
go through.
Sitting on a plane for two
hours over break, I reflected alwut
this past season. No matter what
angle I looked at, I always kept
asking myself a question that
simply started with, "What if?"
The season started with great
expectations. Senior leadership,
an athletic freshman class, and
a man named Moussa guard-
ing the basket highlighted the
team's Strengths. The Pirates
entered Conference USA play at
K-2, which included wins against
a good Coastal (laroMna team and
a soon-to-be ACC member Vir-
ginia Tech.
The first conference game
matched us up with UAB in
Greenville. This game would
prove to be a microcosm of con-
ference games tor the Pirates, as
Has lost by three. Later on in
the season, ECU would lose to
the same Blazer team by three
in Birmingham. Let's not forget
that this is the same UAB team
that just knocked oft Kentucky
in the NCAA tournament and
is two wins away from the final
lour. What il we would have won
ECU'S season was marked with injuries and heartbreakers.
those games? Would UAB have
received an at-large bid into the
NCAA tournament still? I doubt
it. They finished 12-4 in the con-
ference and had those two games
gone the way of the I'irates, they
are 10-6. Instead of tied for first,
they finish fifth. This would
have also dramatitally dropped
their RPI.
After a blow out loss at (:har-
lotte, ECU was getting ready for
I oulSVllie. This game brought
an almost sellout crowd to play
one of the hottest teams in the
nation at the time and to have
a chance to be seen on national
television. In practice the day
before the game, Gabriel Miku-
las broke his arm and did not set
foot on the hardwood for the rest
of the year. What if this never
happens? Does ECU win some of
their nine losses by less than 10
after his injury?
A late season surge that gave
the I'irates four wins in five
games placed them in 11th in
the conference and matched
them up with Louisville in the
conference tournament, which
they lost. Would you believe that
this loss was by less than 10?
It's hard to describe this
season. At 13-14, ECU was one
game short of qualifying for the
NIT. They lost to Houston by
two. They had those two three
point losses to UAB. They lost
the biggest heartbreaking game
I've ever witnessed in person to
Charlotte, where a dunk follow
at the buzzer sent the game into
overtime. What if this team
made the NIT? Even if they go
"one and done the experience
that younger players, especially
those in the backcourt, could
have gained cannot be taught. It
can only be acquired.
So I sit here just as I did last
year after Spring Break, looking
forward to next season. If this
team can win those close games,
NIT will be a lock.
I feel Moussa is going to have
a breakout season. His offense
improved dramatically this
season to add to his incredible
defensive timing to block shots.
Mike Cook will take over games
and will be a free throw shooter
to seal close games, something
our team missed this year. Belton
Rivers is becoming a smarter
player and he should have a
good season from behind the arc.
No matter what happens next
season, no player needs to step
up more than Corey Rouse. With
both starting forwards graduat-
ing this season, his role will dra-
matically increase. He needs to be
a scorer, but more importantly, a
rebounder.
What if these things
happen? It's simple - post season
play.

ECU softball red hot during Spring Break
Lady Pirates' record
21-1 in last 22 games
DAVID WASKIEWICZ
STAFF WRITER
After coming off a strong
performance at the Pirate Clash
Tournament on March 7, the
softball team had the chance
to Improve their 17-5-1 record.
They participated in two tour-
naments and faced UAB for
the chance to win their first
conference games ol the year
during Spring Break.
ECU did not disappoint
as the Lady Pirates won both
tournaments and swept UAB
for their first conference wins
this season, ultimately improv-
ing their season record to
32-6-1 and 3-3 in conference
play,
The lady Pirates kicked off
Spring Break in Charleston, SC
by winning the CougBIlassie
Tournament and defeating UAH
in the finals. The team inflicted
further punishment to UAB just
two days later at home, sweeping
them in all three games.
The winning didn't stop
there as the Pirates dominated
the GMU Patriotlassie the fol-
lewing weekend, outscoring its
opponents 71-7 and defeating
host (ieorge Mason 6-3 in the
championship game.

More than half the proceeds I rom
the event, sponsored by KP Sports

Jimmy V. foundation, an orga-
nization promoting cancer
research.
"We hope to have a good
turnout so this can bean annual

event.
"Crass roots events such as
this one make up the driving
force of revenue for the Jimmy

I his is Peten's fourth game
involving ACC seniors and his
first involving ECU players.
According to Peten.
the game should be very
competitive because the
ECU players are used to playing
together as a team. The team
will also include ECU basketball
alumni. Last year a group of ACC
seniors, including Josh Howard,
lost to a team made up of seniors
from Johnston C. Smith.
Previously Peten gave
the Jimmy V. Foundation
a donation, but this year he
wanted to plan an event specifi-
cally for them.
"I hope to get support from
student organizations such as

ECU built a 7-4 lead against
the visitors, hut saw the Green
Wave put up five runs in the
lop of the seventh to regain the
lead 9-7.
Ryan Jones' eighth home run
of the season, a two-run shot
in the bottom of the eighth,
knotted the score at nine,
lulane scored on a wild pitch
in the top of the ninth to take a
10-9 lead, but the Pirates quickly
struck back in the bottom ot the
inning with a run produced by
an RBI single from Mike Grace
to score Brian Cavanaugh.
Jones and Grace were both
3-6 from the plate on the night.
Game three was all Green
Wave as thev rolled to a 9-0
victory over the Pirates.
Cory Hahn, the talented
lulane senior, went the
distance for the Green Wave.
The shutout marked the
first lime ECU has lost a home
series since 2002 against
Louisville. The Louisville game
was also the last time a Pirate
team was shutout at home.
Hahn allowed only
one runner past second
base and lulane as a squad
benefited from four Pirate errors
to produce runs throughout the
contest.
"I think that if any of these

Deacons' fan in tough position
PHILADELPHIA (KKT) � At
the thrilling NCAA tourney
game neared its conclusion on
Saturday, Kenneth C. Herbst
could no longer contain him-
self.
"I got so excited, I stood
up and started doing defensive
slides the assistant professor
ol food marketing at St. Joseph's
said Monday, his voice still
crackling with enthusiasm. "I'm
sitting there yelling at the TV,
sweating it out
When the game ended,
I lerhst felt a deep sense of pride
and joy. His si hool had won and
advanced to the Sweet 16.
His school is Wake Forest.
Ins hours after Wake Forest
knocked off Manhattan, 84-80,
St. Joseph's defeated Texas Tech
to also move into the Sweet 16,
setting up Thursday night's
NCAA Fast Rutherford Regional
matchup between the Hawks and
lemon Deacons at Continental
Airlines Arena. The winner
will be one victory away from
advancing to college basketball's
grandest stage the Final Four.
"My two worlds are collid-
ing Herbst, 29, said from his
home in Plymouth Meeting.
"No way in hell did I ever imag-
ine the two schools I love would
be playing each other in such a
big game
Who could have ever imag-
ined that a Wake Forest grad and
former player, born and raised
in Winston-Salem, N.C site of
the Demon Deacons' campus,
would end up teaching at St.
Joe's, where he would develop a
fondness for the Hawks and their
coach, Phil Martelli?
"This is tough Herbst said.
"Really tough
less up, Kenny, where does
your allegiance lie?
After taking a deep breath,
he answered with a nervous
laugh, "My entire life has been
Wake Forest, Wake Forest. My
heart is with the Deacs. But put
it this way, if Wake has to lose,
I'd rather it be to St. Joe's than
any other school. And if St. Joe's
wins, I'll be with them the rest
of the way
Before his colleagues or
students take up torches and
descend on his office at St. Joe's

of 2002, would like to get a few
matters straight:
He is no fan-of Billy Packer,
the CBS-TV hoops analyst and
Wake Forest alum who trashed
SI. Joe's on Selection Sunday
when the Hawks were slotted as
a No. 1 seed.
Herbst said he long ago
sensed a considerable number
of Wake Forest followers share
his feelings about Packer, who,
by the way, will be calling
Thursday's game.
"18 Packer 38 listed even
possible team he could think
of, all big-time programs with
brand-name equity Herbst
said. "It was a special moment in
St. Joe's history, and he's down-
playing their accomplishments,
embarrassing himself.
"I mean, St. Joe's saw the
bride coming down the aisle
and they sas stand up or forever
hold your peace. Within five sei -
onds, Billy Packer decided to be
the person to stand up "
Herbst believes Packer has
a large share of detractors from
Wake Forest, where Packer played
guard on the Deacons' 1962 Final
Four team that defeated the
Hawks in the tourney. The prior
season, St. Joe's beat Wake Forest
in the tourney.
"I've listened to him do Wake
games, and to me he even seems
to be anti-Wake Herbst said.
"Maybe it's because they never
retired his number
Martelli has brought recruits
to meet Herbst
"They often bring recruits
to my office because I love St.
Joe's and I can tell them why
St. Joe's is such a great place
to come because it's small and
there's a family atmosphere. You
get to know the faculty. You're
taken care of. I really enjoy It
he said.
like St. Joe's, Wake is a small
university, with an enrollment
of 3,950, about 100 more than
St. Joe's.
