Campus Living makes
safety improvements
Cameras, new lighting
first on agenda
Campus Living is in the
process of adding cameras and
improving lighting to the resi-
dence halls - the first in a long
list of safety improvements
which will continue throughout
the summer.
In a news release sent March
29, Campus Living outlined a
plan in hopes to ensure students'
safety and reduce crime.
The improvements come
in the wake of two dorm rapes
and an unclaimed 9mm pistol a
resident found on the bathroom
floor of Tyler Hall. New lighting
has been installed in several of
the dorms, and back doors have
been pinned shut, but the surveil-
lance cameras have yet to be put
in place.

During Greek Week, mem-

Unfortunately, Lucier said,
the process takes some time
because the bid must go out
through the state system, and
then prospective contractors
have to visit the job site to assess
doors, hallways and construc-
tion issues.
Lucier said the site visits
are mandatory for any contrac-
tor who wants to bid on the
job, and visits also ensure an
accurate bid.
Allen Security, the com-
pany that created the proposal
and who may be a prospective
bidder, estimated the cost of the
entire project-putting cameras
around every residence hall - at
more than $300,000.
Lucier said any project
more than $5,000 requires
bids from private contrac-
tors. Aycock, Jones and Scott

Open forum held to
explain decision
Students in the hospitality
management department chal-
lenged the department chair
and dean about the circum-
stances surrounding professor
Jim Dishaw's dismissal from
the program last night in an
open forum.
"The purpose of today's
forum is to help us understand
how the decision was made
said Megan Brewer, hospital-
ity management major who
led the students in organizing
the forum.
Laura Sweet, ECU's ombuds-
man, said the administrative
officials in attendance were
limited in what they could
legally say because Dishaw's
dismissal was due to personnel
"Personnel issues cannot be
discussed in open meetings
said Sweet.
"Any questions you have
about the dismissal cannot be
discussed with any of us. 1 can
tell you that all of the policies

forum voiced their opinions
about Dishaw's dismissal and
asked a variety of questions to
William Forsythe, professor
and chair of the hospitality
management department, and
Karla Hughes, professor and
dean of the college of human
Students said Dishaw has
encouraged them to strive for
their best and assisted them in
finding jobs.

In My Opinion
Student government is dominated by Greek organizations
Disproportionate number
of Greeks serve in SGA
last night, I coveted the SGA
meeting at Mendenhall as a news
story for The East Catottniart.
As I sat quietly in the back of
the half empty hall, a realization
dawned on me that I was unable
to shake off all night: Our student
government is filled with a dispro-
portionate number of (.reeks.
No, I don't mean the olive-
skinned, Mediterranean kind of
Greeks, I mean those persons on
campus affiliated with a Frater-
nity or Sorority.
As they represent a scant 7 per-
cent of the overall ECU student
population, I found the number
of fraternity and sorority T-shirts,
purses and other assorted memo-
rabilia to be misrepresentative of
their actual numbers on this
After I had finished my news
story, I approached a number of
people to find out just how much
of student government is actually
Greek, and the numbers I was pre-
sented with were - to say the least
- alarming.
One person told me 70 per-
cent, another 65 percent. A few
people put the percentage lower,
around 50 percent or so.
I was dumbfounded. Not
only is StiA, the entity which is
supposed to be looking out for
my best interests, overrun with
people who share allegiances to
organizations having nothing
official to do with the University,
but every person I asked seemed
absolutely resigned to this fact!
70 percent! That is abso-
lutely ridiculous and in my
opinion a blatant miscarriage
of the duties and responsibili-
ties of SGA
Ten percent of the popula-
tion controlling a majority of
seats in the SGA is an outrage,
but I seemed to be the only
person who recognized this.
During the 1970s and 1980s,
South Africa had a similar situ-
ation. A tiny percentage of the
citizenry controlling the vast
majority, and generally endors-
ing unpopular and counter-pro-
ductive policies - they called it
All right, all right, maybe the
apartheid comparison is a little
strong, but the idea is the same.
A tiny percentage of one group
exercising some form of influ-
ence over the rest is antithetical
to democracy and runs counter
to many of the ideals that we
hold so dearly or maybe
that's just me.
Ok, 1 admit it; 1 am funda-
mentally opposed to the very
idea of fraternities and sorori-
ties. Any social organization
that considers itself elite and
exercises exclusionary admission
policies can't be good.
The idea when one joins a
fraternity or sorority, as far as
I can tell, is to spend time with
only those people with whom
you share close life experience
and ideals - people like you. And
as much as 1 hate to stereotype,
lets be honest.
Many Greeks dress alike,
act alike and carry themselves
alike, and to me that is just the
opposite of what we should be
striving to create within our
We should embrace the dif-
ferences, not accentuate the
similarities, between one another
and organizations that would
exclude a person simply on the
basis of their clothing, manner
of speech or socio-economic
background is not what America
I understand that Greeks are
students, too. Believe it or not,
some of my closest friends are
currently or were formerly mem-
bers of one Greek organization
or another.
But the point is that 10 per-
cent of the student population
should not represent 50 or 60 or
70 percent of a body that is sup-
posed to speak for everyone.
It is not my intention to
cast character dispersions on
fraternity brothers or sorority
sisters with this article, as that
is irrelevant to the topic at
Nor is it my intention to
imply that Greeks should have
no representation within their
own student government.
On the contrary, I am
advocating an effort to more
evenly balance the ranks of
the student Senate, because 70
percent of people belonging
to one extremely small demo-
graphic on this campus is an
unconscionable violation of the
very concept of student govern-
No, my effort would be
to focus on the problem of
many individuals belonging to
the same organization being
involved in SGA.
During the meeting that 1 was
witness to, a number of gentle-
man wearing identical fraternity
propaganda, had clustered them-
selves in one small area and were
vehemently objecting all at the
same time.
They seemed to gang up on
one individual and provided
inappropriate commentary to
each other throughout the entire
meeting. I found this behavior
abhorrent and childish, but that
is not an indictment of every fra-
ternity brother on this campus.
Allowing people with such
a specific interest at heart to
participate in what should be as
objective a proceeding as possible
is an injustice to every other stu-
dent affected by the decisions
made by SGA.
I'm surethat 1 will receiveany
number of hateful or Inflamma-
tory comments in response to
this opinion, and that's OK. The
fundamental idea behind my
argument is not that you agree,
only that you think - even for a
For that is a thought process
that may not have existed other-
wise. Call me every name in the
book if you like - it's nothing
I haven't heard before. But as
long as you think, my work here
is done.
Letter to the Editor In My Opinion
Dear Editor,
1 am writing in response
to the letter John Becker wrote
commenting on an earlier article
written by I'eter Kalajian about
the Israel assassination of Sheik
Ahmed Yassin, the founder of
I believe that John's .letter
included unlair and extreme
judgments ,ind accusations
which have to be addressed.
In two occasions, John
labeled all Palestinians to be
terrorists. He went even further
when he said, "I should fear of
any body that is not Christian
or Jewish
I believe that if John knew
that 15 percent of the Palestin-
ians are Christians, he might
not have made this extreme
I am not here to lecture, but
I really feel sorry for a college
student who has this way of gen-
After all, if John believes
that Palestinians are terrorists,
this is his own opinion. It is
enough that the overwhelming
majority of the world's nations
reconize Palestinians as fighters
for freedom.
Yet, the growing trend today
is to recognize the Israeli occupa-
tion as the ugliest face of state ter-
rorism in recent history. Again,
John accused Palestinians of not
being a noble people.
In order to be so "maybe all
they would target is the IDF I

One fact is due here. Over
the past three years, nearly
3,000 Palestinians were mur-
dered by the IDI.
Six hundred of them are
children (I don't know if those
are also terrorists). The latest
number exceeds the number of
all Israelis who lost their lives
in the same period.
Finally, John, Peter, myself
and you, my dear reader, are
enjoying the taste of freedom.
The one who best knows its
cost is the one who's deprived
of it.
The Palestinians, whom
John labeled as terrorists, have
been sacrificing their lives over
the past century to get their
freedom and get rid of the

The thousands of Palestin-
ians in the Israeli prisons can
also tell what the cost of free-

Behind the price tags: Getting
what you pay for at Wal-Mart
(KRT)�It's time to look
behind the price tags at Wal-
Mart Stores, and ask whether
those bargains arc worth the
The latest revelation of an
insane policy is the practice of
locking overnight workers in
the store, without a manager
on site to let them out in case
of an emergency.
There are fire doors, but
employees are ordered to use
them only in case of fire. If a
worker is badly injured, goes
into labor or has a family emer-
gency, he or she has to wait for
a manager to get to the store
with a key.
Wal-Mart and Sam's Club
stores engaged in the lockdowns
until recently. Shamed company
officials now say the dangerous
practice has ended.
As this Dickensian throw-
back was being disclosed, the
company was responding to
publication of an internal
audit that uncovered thou-
sands of labor violations,
including 1,371 violations of
child-labor laws.
The list goes on. In Octo-
ber, federal agents raided 60
Wal-Mart stores in 21 states
and arrested more than 250
Illegal immigrants working as
Later, a federal lawsuit was
filed contending that Wal-Mart
and its contractors failed to pay
these employees legally required
overtime or make workers' com-
pensation and Social Security
Wal-Mart has a record of
employment law violations;
the company has been sued over
"nff-the-clock" work, discrimi-
nation against Hispanic employ-
ees and sex discrimination, and
has paid tens of millions of dol-
lars in settlements.
On the environmental front,
Wal-Mart just agreed in federal
court to pay a $400,000 penalty
and stop selling refrigerants
that contain ozone-depleting
It almost makes one nos-
talgic for the days when the
only complaint about Wal-
Mart was sprawl. On that topic,
The Washington Post recently
reported that 245 former
Wal-Marts sit empty or par-
tially empty across the country,
adding to local blight.
Wal-Mart is leaving those
big boxes for bigger boxes,
groceryretail superstores.
Wal-Mart became the
world's largest corporation, an
economic force unto itself, by
relentlessly cutting prices. In
the short-term, this Is good for
the consumer.
But by squeezing suppliers
for every cent, Wal-Mart has
helped drive U.S. manufactur-
ing jobs overseas. What priceare
the bargains at Wal-Mart?

ECU biology professor honored by U.S. Coast Guard
The U.S. Coast (iuard hon-
ored Lisa M. Clough, assistant
professor of biology at ECU, with
an award for public service.
Clough served on a commit-
tee of scientists who provided
technical expertise to the Coast
Guard in its effort to build a
research-friendly polar ice-
breaker, the USCGC MEALY.
"In the United States, if you
want to do research in the Arctic
Ocean, you have to go out and do
your work on a Coast (iuard ice
breaker said Clough.
"In the past, the ice break-
ers were built for the military
and retrofitted for science. In
1994, the Coast Guard planned
to build a new ice breaker and
they wanted to take science
into consideration from the
In 1996, Clough was Invited
to serve as a founding member of
the University-National Ocean-
ographic Laboratory System's
Arctic Icebreaker Coordinating
Committee. Clough and a team
of seven other Arctic scientists
provided scientific oversight to
the design, testing and evalua-
tion of the 420-foot IIKAI.Y ice-
breaker, which made its maiden
voyage in 2000.
In 2001, Clough was asked
to chair Ihe committee and lead
its second charge: to serve as a
liaison for the new ship's guest
scientists and officials at the
Coast (iuard.
"Dr. Clough's leadership
and enthusiasm for the Coast
Guard icebreaker program and
her positive interaction with
the science and academic com-
munities has strengthened the
working relationship between
the Coast (iuard and its sci-
ence customers said the Coast
Guard's Distinguished Public
Service Award.
"Dr. Clough's accomplish-
ments are most heartily com-
mended and are In keeping
with the highest traditions of the
United States Coast (iuard
Under Clough's leadership,
the committee broadened its
focus to encompass science
operations onboard all three
('oast (iuard polar icebreakers.
"After every science cruise,
I would run a discussion of the
chief scientists to get feedback
on how to improve the ship
Clough said.
Clough, who studies crea-
tures that live at the bottom of
the sea, first conducted research
in the Arctic waters in 1993 as
part of her post-doctoral stud-
ies with William Ambrose at
ECU. Clough later returned to
the Arctic once or twice a year
to continue and expand her
research in benthlc ecology.
Clough said she was pleased
to receive the award last month
at a banquet in Washington D.C
and hopes that others will ben-
efit from the committee's work
in the future.
"In a lot of ways I think we
have made a significant dif-
ference in the way ships are
available for the scientific com-
munity Clough said.

Safety Assessment, Proposed Changes For Residence Halls
Umstead: Problems found were dark stairs and the surrounding fence near the dumpsters; also the back stairwells by rooms 135 and 151 are
too dark.
Slay: The parking lot Is too dark and the middle door that leads to the courtyard Is too dark.
Belk: Needs brighter lighting in the east and west stairwells, breezeways; there is a potentially dangerous "hiding spot" under the stairs down
the center. A light needs to be placed by the outside water fountain located under the east side stairwell near the basketball court, sur velllance
cameras for the laundry room.
CottenFlemlng: There needs to be a blue light phone between CottonFleming in the courtyard. It was also discovered that the trash dump
ster between the two halls is too dark. In Cotton, poor lighting was discovered by the Interior doors to the courtyard (from the first floor near the
bathroom); the Southwest comer near the Wright Fountain and on the mall (two entrances were affected). In Fleming, dark areas were found near
the gate outside the southeast entrance (service door) and the interior side stairwells need lights.
JarvisFleming: The big green gates in the courtyard should have better lights.
Jarvis: The outside stairwell going to the basement on the southeast side needs lights. The bushes (facing Fifth Street) need trimming. There Is a
space under the stairwells In the southwest Interior tower that needs lights, as well as the balconies on the second floor and the mall area facing
Fifth Street.
Fletcher The door on the first floor male side that faces the construction work needs lights.
Greene: The social room needs more lights (will be completed this summer). The exit door facing the Recreation Center's peek window on the
door Is top small In the area between the housekeeping manager's office. It was found that someone could hide In the hallway near the house-
keeping manager's office.

'Rocky Horror' to show in Hendrix Theatre
Event offers free prop
bags, costume contest
The Rocky Horror Picture Slum
began as a small stage production
in London in 1973 showing in
front ol about 60 people.
It was quickly moved to a
larger venue and was received
with great fanfare and critical
Innovative Americarfcmusu
producer Lou Adler saw the
show and immediately bought
the film rights.
The film teeters between
mockery and tribute to the
horror film, but either way it is
unlike anything else you have
ever seen.
It tells the story of two
straight-edged young kids
who run into trouble on their
way to see an old college
professor and end up at the
houe of Dr. Frank N. Furter, a
transvestite mad scientist from
another planet.
What ensues is a strange
and sexually ambiguous orgy of
comedy and other really, really
weird stuff.
Perhaps the biggest draw to
Picture Show is the event that
accompanies the movie.
The audience is invited to
dress in ridiculous outfits and
actually participate in the movie
Following on-screen prompts,
moviegoers throw confetti, rice
and toilet paper.
Picture Show has turned into
possibly the biggest cult mpvie
In many major cities (and
even one in Raleigh), it still draws
an audience every single night.
It is the kind ol thing that elic-
its a sense of comradery among
viewers, like belonging to an
exclusive club.
Those who have never seen
the show before are referred to
as "virgins
The movie may have a
long list of devoted followers,

Four ECU athletes
named All-American
by NSCA program
KCU had four student-athletes
named 2004 All-American Ath-
letes by the National Strength and
Conditioning Association: Lrroyl
Bing, Alexis Jones, Vonta Leach
and Brian Rimpf.
The NSCA program recog-
nizes those collegiate athletes,
whose accomplishments, in the
opinion of their strength coach,
reflect their dedication to strength
training and conditioning.
Bing's dedication to improv-
ing his strength and condition-
ing carried directly over lo his
performance on the basketball
court. As a senior, he led KCU in
rebounding and ranked fourth in
Conference USA. His tenacious
tactics on the glass helped him
become the school's second all-
time leading rebounder with 948
career boards.
As a middle blocker on the
Pirate volleyball team, Jones
led the squad in attack percent-
age (.285) as a senior. She also
recorded the highest approach
jump by any KCU female athlete
this past season (32.5").
During a two-year span. I each
added 50 pounds to his bench
press (420 lbs) and 70 pounds
(670 lbs.) to his squat max. This
past season, Leach carried the ball
into the end one five times as a
senior and rushed for 290 yards
from his fullback position.
Regarded as one of the hard-
est workers on the Pirate football
team, both on and off the field,
Kimpf ranks among ECU'S all-
time leaders in three weight
lilting categories, which includes
a record 401-pound push jerk.
Rimpf was a three-time All C-USA
performer along the offensive line
and earned honorable mention

Eddie Sutton loves to tell stories
about Henry Iba, who was Sul-
tan's coach and mentor during
his playing days at the school.
Iba, demanding and tough, was
described as basketball's funda-
mentalist country preacher. His
nickname was the Iron Duke,
but those who played for him
respectfully call him Mr. Iba.
"On holidays, we practiced
three times Sutton said. "We'd
go 9 in the morning until noon, 2
to 5, and then come back at night
and practice until begot tired.
I'm not sure Mr. Iba could have

if it were allowed. Jim Calhoun
loves being in the gym every
day with his teain. He's no prai-

become New England's version
of Iba, an updated version of the
basketball teacher with a Boston
accent instead of an Oklahoma
Now Calhoun has something

championship last week with an

reached elite status.
Ry winning the national
championship for the second
time in six seasons, UConn
joins Duke and Kentucky as the
only programs with multiple
championships since the NCAA
Tournament expanded to 64
teams in 1985.
The list of coaches with two
NCAA championships is short.
In addition to Iba and Calhoun,
it includes Denny Crum of Lou-
isville, Ed Jucker of Cincinnati,

Dean Smith of North Carolina
and Phil Woolperl of Nan 1-ran-
The list of coaches with more

Krzyzewski each have three.
Kentucky's Adolph Rupp won
four. And UCLA's John Wooden
sits atop the list with his amazing
total of 10.

Calhoun is in their com-
pany because they are the only
three on the list who are still
active. And Calhoun has further
cemented his place in history by
beating Krzyzewski twice in Final

behind Wooden (12) and Smith

4-0 in Final Four games.
Of the coaches who have
won multiple championships,
only Woolpert, McCracken,
Jucker and Iba won their first
four Final lour games, Iba won
consecutive championships in
1945 and 1946, then never won
another. Woolpert had Bill Rus-
sell on his side when he won in
1955 and 1956. Jucker didn't win
in I960 with Oscar Robertson,
but he did win consecutive titles
in 1961 and 1962.
Krzyzewski led Duke to con-
secutive titles in 1991 and 1992
and it was a great accomplish-
ment. But in this age of early
entry into the NBA, Calhoun's
accomplishment is proof he has
built a program that can with-
stand the clement of lime. Only
Mc( racken, who won in 1940and
1953, had a longer span between
his two championships.
When the NCAA publishes
its 2005 edition of Final Four
records, Calhoun will join
McCracken as the only Final
Four coaches with a 1.000 win-
ning percentage in a minimum
of three games. Wooden (21-3)
is next at .875.
"The great thing for me at
age 61 is to continue to learn
from my kids, and that's a
great lesson Calhoun said.
"This team proved to me that
they can stand up to the scru-
tiny and to the disappointments.

we were voted the No. 1 dis-

We were 21-3. The No. 1 disap-

Linebackers rated for NFL Draft
(KRT) � Ten players were
drafted off a defense that carried
Oklahoma to a national title in
2000. Linebacker Teddy Lehman
figures to tx- the 11th. He didn't
start. He had to wait his turn behind
Rocky Calmus. But he knew that
going in.
"Oklahoma is loaded every
year said.
"They always have the next
greatest player. It makes it easy on
all of us
( .ilniiis won the Butkus Award
as the best linebacker in college foot-
ball in 2001. Safety Roy Williams
won the Thorpe Award as the best
defensive back and the Nagurski
Award as the best defensive layer,
also in 2001.
Lehman followed them to
the podium in 2003, winning
the Butkus and Bednarik. Having
watched Calmus and Williams as a
freshman and played with them as
a sophomore provided Lehman the
role models to max out his game.
"Rocky was one of the best
linebackers ever to come out of
Oklahoma Lehman said.
"He's a great leader and some-
one I've always looked up to. I've
strived to get to his level
Calmus starts for the Ten nessee
Titans and Williams starts for the
Cowboys. Williams became a first-
time Pro Bowler in 2003.
"Roy never missed a tackle,
never took a play off Lehman
"He made huge plays every
game, every day. He set a standard

. The best: U.J. Williams, Miami
D.J. Williams went to Miami
as a running back and started two
games as a freshman before moving
to linebacker.
He started his final three sea-
sons on defense and concluded his
career as an All-Big East selection.
Sleeper: Renauld Williams,
Renauld Williams started his
college career at New Hampshire
but transferred to Hofstra, where he
became a two-time All-Atlantic 10
selection. He was the team MVP in
2002, when he racked up IS sacks,
and defensive MVPin 2003. He had
a dynamic workout on campus,
running a 4.48 40-yard dash to
pique the interest of NFL teams.
Caleb Miller posted three con-
secutive 100-tackle seasons as an
inside linebacker at Arkansas. But
at 224 pounds, he is considered t(x
skinny to play there in the NFL.
Jack Lambert was considered
too skinny, too. "I played in the
SEC, and that's probably as close
size-wise and speed-wise to the
NFL said Miller, of Sulphur
Springs, Texas. "Regardless of your
size, look at the tapes and the statis-
tics. You can't argue with it
