Bowles seeks additional
support before election
United States Senate can-
didate Erskine Bowles made
two appearances in Greenville
over the last week showing his
dedication to student voters.
If Bowles wins the election,
a main priority he will focus on
would be working to keep tuition
prices low and improving the
overall scholastic system within
North Carolina.
He said the biggest thing the
government can do to accom-
plish this would be decreasing
the unfunded mandates on the
states which eat up the resources
causing tuition to increase.
Bowles said he would also
work to increase the number and
dollar amount of Pell grants.
"I'm going to work hard to
see your money invested in Pell
grants said Bowles.
He addresses many aspects
of education that he felt were
"I'm no fan in the No Child
Left Behind program because it
was passed with bi partisan sup-
port Bowles said.
Bowles said the people working
with No Child Left Behind need to
be given the resources to get the
job done. He said that the Ameri-
can education system is inadequate
compared to other countries.
"If you rank us in math and
science compared to foreign coun-
tries, we rank 1920 Bowles said.
Another factor he wants to
improve is helping young chil-
dren in school and make sure
there are adequate and sufficient
after school programs available
to keep th� kids off the streets.
He also wants to improve having
smaller class sizes.
. Bowles said there is a 9,000
teacher shortage in North Caro-
lina. He said in other countries
teaching is the most highly paid
profession because it is the most
important job.
"In this country we must
begin to value the teach-
ing profession Bowles said.
"We've got to quit thinking
about what we pay our teachers
compared to other states, and we
instead need to compare teacher
salaries to other professions
Bowles said he had values
passed on to him by his parents
who have made him aware of the
importance of health care, which
he has witnessed to be a problem
within North Carolina.
He said he came across a young
girl who was sick and was not taken
to the hospital because her father
did not have adequate health care.
The girl ended up in the emer-
gency room and the cost there
was five times the amount of what
it would have been at the doctor.
Bowles said he is thrilled the
tobacco buyout passed, but he is
still working on the issue. The issue
will not go into effect until 2005
and people need to make sure the
phase II payments keep coming
until the program takes effect.
One factor he would like to
see happen includes making sure
all the foreign leaf coming into
the U.S. is inspected. There is a
paragraph in the buyout stating
we no longer have to accept any
foreign leaf.
Concerning jobs, Bowles said
he has heard people in North
Carolina say, "It's not a recovery
when the job you have now pays
half of the job you had two years
Shootings, armed
robbery, assault
The annual Halloween
festivities were held in down-
town Greenville Sunday night
drawing thousands of cos-
tume wearing revelers from
within and outside ECU.
This year's festivities were
held on a Sunday, which led
local law enforcement agencies to
increase their forces throughout
the entire weekend.
Major Kevin Smeltzer of the
Greenville Police Department
said large crowds were expected
to gather throughout the week-
end, but the crowds ended up
being smaller than anticipated.
Several incidents occurred out-
side the downtown area which
required officers to leave their posts.
Two shootings occurred and
an armed robbery outside the
downtown Greenville area forc-
ing the police to concentrate
their efforts in several areas.
"The amount of people we had
to pull out of the downtown area
strained our resources said Smeltzer.
Inside the crowd, there was
an assault that required the
hospitalization of the victim.
Further details of the incident
were unavailable.
Police had given out several cita-
tions, made several arrests and placed
campus bans on several people.
The assault occurred on the
Police patrolled the streets of
corner of Fifth and Rotary and
the victim was an ECU student.
The assailant was arrested and
the victim was taken to the hos-
pital where he was treated for a
broken nose.
This year's officers checked
purses and bags before allowing
people to pass through into the
crowd leading to the recovery of
several handguns and hindered
the smuggling of alcoholic bever-
ages into the scene.
Captain J.P. Smith of the ECU
Police Department said this year's
festivities were a lot calmer than
in year's past.

midnight madness over down-
town Smith said.
"All in all, it was a relatively
calm event when compared to
previous years
The increased attendance at
the alcohol free midnight mad-
ness event probably had a lot to
do with the festivities being more
toned down this year Smith said.
Smith said several EMS calls
were made for extremely intoxi-
cated students who needed medi-
cal treatment and the students
will likely receive campus appear-
ance tickets for their behavior.
Smith and Smeltzer both
said because of the ratio of rev-
elers to police officers, many
incidents that would have nor-
mally resulted in arrests were
resolved through citations or
verbal warnings because of
the demand for the constant
surveillance of the crowd.
"You've got to handle things
quickly so you can move on to
the next thing Smeltzer said.
ECU student George Bendler,
junior urban planning major said
he enjoyed this year's festivities,
but thought Saturday night was
more of a celebration than Sunday.

sophomore science education
major, attended the celebration

ECU professor awarded Fulbright
scholarship to study in France
ECU Professor presents
views on today's election
Morris predicts a close
presidential election
Historically, younger voters
have not shown a large amount
of interest in presidential elec-
tions. With the current election,
there has been an immense
increase of younger people regis-
tering to vote which may change
this historic trend.
Jonathan Morris, ECU politi-
cal science professor, said a reason
for this increased interest might
be due to the current issues being
discussed in the election which
affect the younger generation.
"The candidates aren't
talking about social security,
they're talking about the war
in Iraq where young people are
dying. They're talking about the
economy, where young people
getting out of college can't get
jobs said Morris.
"These are issues that speak
directly tb young voters
Morris said an increase in
voter registration does not ensure
a record turnout. If young people
do vote in large numbers this
year, they will surely garner more
attention in future elections.

Fay works with admired
renowned authors
An ECU professor's Fulbright
scholarship allows her to live and
work among renowned writers
in France.
Under a Fulbright scholar-
ship, a faculty member or student
conducts a specified project or
study in a foreign location, which
they would not have been able to
do in their native country.
Julie Fay, recipient of the
scholarship, is currently residing
in France where she will be living
for the next three years under the
Fulbright grant.
Fay will be giving lectures at
the University Paul Valery as a
faculty member.
Faculty members may teach,
do research or other activities
usually involving consultation
and observation.
The project Fay is working on
deals with two research subjects:
the works of Occitian writer,
Max Rouquette, and her own
original writings of poetry and
prose focusing on the medieval
pilgrimage route, the Chemin de
St. Jaques de Compostelle that
passes through her area.
Fay has gotten the chance to
meet Rouquette, whose works she
has admired.
"The Fulbright has given me
a chance to meet him and go to
meetings and conferences regard-
ing his work said Fay.
"The writing takes in
everything from the church
hundreds of years ago to old
guys hanging around bars and
gossiping today
David Harrison from the
school of social work at the
college of human ecology
said students may undertake
academically oriented projects,
take courses or do other relevant
things in other countries. Stu-
dents normally spend a school
year under a Fulbright scholarship.
Students interested in apply-
ing for Fulbright scholarships are
encouraged not to delay in begin-
ning the application process.
"Students should know
they must submit their
applications through the uni-
versity in October for pro-
grams that begin essentially
a year later said Harrison.
"The best time to start think-
ing seriously about Fulbright is
in the winter or spring before
the application that's a year
and a half or two years ahead
of time
Harrison said despite the
myth, the Fulbright Scholar-
ship is not just for a near-perfect
student. The competition varies
considerably between countries
and any student with a strong
academic record is encouraged to
look into the program.
The Fulbright Grant was
made under Senator J. Wil-
liam Fulbright after World
War II so students from other
countries could go to different
countries and observe others'
social, economic and academic
environments. One of the goals
of the Fulbright scholarship
program is to allow nations to
understand foreign traditions.
Students interested in
applying for Fulbright scholar-
ships can contact Sarah Ste-
venson with the Study Abroad
Program in the Office of
International Affairs.

With the presidential election
taking place today, the ECU Col-
lege Democrats and Republicans
have been campaigning in the
Wright plaza for the last several
months, which has attracted
several candidates.
Matthew Wickens, junior
political science major and a Col-
lege Republican, said he supports
President Bush on social, economic
and domestic issues completely.
"1 hold the same fundamen-
tal values as President Bush, along
with the Republican Party
Wickens said he opposes
social issues like gay marriage,
civil unions and abortion. He
said the president will fight for
our traditional values.
On the war in Iraq, Wickens
said the president is doing a
good job, in spite of some public
opinion polls, and that he will do
the best at bringing peace to the
Middle East.
"When you alter their gov-
ernment from a dictatorship to a
democracy, many problems will
ultimately occur said Wickens.
"It will be a messy situation
at first, but in due time, the situ-
ation will get better
He said Democrats tend
to look at the immediate
situation, while Republicans
see what a free Iraq will do
for the world in the future.
Matthew Cohen, senior
political science majorand a
College Democrat, does
not approve of Bush's job
performance and views. He said
he believes the nation is going in
the wrong direction in terms of
domestic and foreign issues.
"Under this president, 44
million Americans have no health
care, the prescription drug cost
has increased and not one new job
has been created said Cohen.
"He is the first president in
over 70 years to not create any
new jobs
Cohen said these problems
are occurring because of the
president's obligation to big
business, pharmaceutical com-
panies and the wealthiest 1
In the war, Cohen said
we went into Iraq without
logistical reasons.
"Bush sent us into Iraq saying
he knew Saddam had weapons
of mass destruction. It's been
almost two years, we've spent
over $285 million, had over 1,100
casualties, and we have yet to
find these weapons. Why haven't
we gone into North Korea where
we know there are weapons?"
Cohen said he supports John
Kerry because he has a brighter
plan for America. He said the
presidential candidate would
lower the cost of prescription
drugs, work to provide health
care for all citizens and fix the
situation in Iraq sooner than
College political parties sit in the Wright plaza throughout the
semester campaigning for their candidates.
President Bush.
Wickens said he does not
believe the nation will get
any better under John Kerry's
leadership, which in many ways,
is too fickle.
Wickens said he, along with
most Americans, trust the presi-
dent more when it comes down
to our safety and security.
"Each candidate cares about
America, it's just about which
candidate will do the best job at
protecting our freedom and well
being. That man is George Bush
Wickens said.
As the final hours approach,
students believe that their
respective candidate will win.
"It's going to be a tight race
Wickens said.

Search for escaped Hoke
Inmate spreads to Cumberland
FAYETTEVILLE, NC - The search for
a man who escaped from the Hoke
County jail spread into Cumberland
County on Monday, after members of
the man's family said they had seen
him in the area.
William Glenn Barefoot, 40, was
serving an 84-year sentence for
shooting a Scotland County sheriffs
officer in 2001. He escaped a week
ago, overpowering two Hoke County
jailers and stealing a Ford Explorer.
He led an Aberdeen police officer on a
chase through town, crashed the SUV
and then disappeared into the woods.
Barefoot's brother, John, said Sunday
night a member of his family spotted
William Barefoot in the woods behind
his house earlier in the day.
He said he spoke to his brother, who
didn't have shoes and said he hadn't
eaten since his escape.
John Barefoot said he warned William
he would have to notify the State
Bureau of Investigation. John said
William ran away, but was later
spotted at his father's house.
Cumberland County Sheriffs Maj. Sam
Pennies said deputies, SBI agents
and officers from the Department
of Correction would be involved
in the search that began early
Monday morning.
William Barefoot is 5 feet, 11 inches
and weighs 202 pounds. He has
brown hair and brown eyes and a
tattoo on his left hand.
Still no definite ID on
woman killed In Union County
ASHViLLE, NC - Union County
investigators remain uncertain about
what started a fire Thursday that led
to the discovery of five people shot
to death in an apparent domestic
Sheriff Eddie Cathey said
Saturday that investigators also still
have not positively identified the
woman found dead in the home in
eastern Union County.
The woman is believed to be Michelle
Wyzanowski, 31. Her estranged
husband, David Wyzanowski, also
was found dead of a gunshot wound
in the house, about a half-mile
north of the Marshville town limits.
Michelle's four children, ages 4 to
10, were found wandering around
outside the house.
Authorities believe David Wyzanowski,
37, killed his wife and himself Thursday,
as well as three of her relatives.
After finding the Wyzanowskis,
authorities went to her father's
mobile home about 10 miles away
in Unionville, where they found the
bodies of Michelle Wyzanowski's
father, Ronald Faulk, 52, and her two
half-brothers, Ronnie Joe Deese, 19,
and Christopher Schrader, 16. All
three men had been shot.
Schroder's mother said she blames
District Court Judge Kevin Bridges

set a $1,000 bond on David
Wyzanowski on a charge of
violating a protective order barring
him from contact with his
estranged wife.
Peterson prosecutors
ready closing arguments
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - After
hearing 174 witnesses for the
prosecution and 14 for the defense,
jurors may be deliberating the fate
of Scott Peterson by midweek.
Closing arguments were set
to begin Monday, with prosecutors
telling jurors why they believe
Peterson should be convicted
of two counts of murder in the
deaths of his pregnant wife, Laci
and the fetus she was carrying.
The prosecution's argument was to
be followed by the defense and then
a prosecution rebuttal. Jurors are
expected to begin deliberations as
early as Wednesday.
Jury selection in the trial began in March.
Opening statements began June 1.
Prosecutors claim Peterson killed his
wife on or around Christmas Eve 2002
and then dumped the weighted body
into San Francisco Bay. The remains
of Laci Peterson and her fetus were
discovered along a rocky shoreline
about four months later, a few miles
from where Scott Peterson claims to
have gone fishing alone the day his
wife vanished.
Prosecutors put together a detailed
web of circumstantial evidence to
cast suspicion on Peterson, 32, but
couldn't point to a murder weapon, a
crime scene or even a cause of death.
Defense lawyers claim someone else
abducted and killed Laci.
In a victory for the prosecution, Judge
Alfred A. Delucchi ruled Friday that
jurors will be allowed to consider
a lesser murder charge thai would
spare Peterson a possible death
sentence if convicted.
The jury must first believe Peterson
planned the killing in advance in
order to convict him on the first-
degree murder charges. He faces the
death penalty or life without parole, if
convicted on those charges.
Supreme Court to
consider domestic violence
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court
said Monday it will decide whether
local governments can be sued for
failing to enforce restraining orders,
using the case of a Colorado mother
whose three daughters were killed
by their father.
The woman, Jessica Gonzales, was
estranged from her husband and
had obtained a restraining order
from a court.
She contends that police ignored
multiple phone calls for help when
Simon Gonzales took the daughters,
ages 10,9 and 7 from the front yard
of her home one night in 1999.
Castle Rock, Colo, police found
Siman Gonzales wjien he showed
up at the police station and started
a gunfight with officers. He was killed
and the girls were found dead in his
pickup truck.
Justices will decide if the mother
can pursue a $30 million lawsuit
against the city on grounds
that her constitutional due process
rights were violated because
the city did not enforce the
restraining order.
The Supreme Court handled a similar
case in 1989 and ruled that public
officials may not be sued when their
alleged gross negligence permits a
child to be abused by a parent The
6-3 opinion was authored by Chief
Justice William H. Rehnquist, who
was absent from Monday's court
session after undergoing treatment
for thyroid cancer.

U.N. nuclear chief
addresses Iran and North Korea
chief Mohamed ElBaradei urged
Iran on Monday to suspend
uranium enrichment and called
on North Korea to dismantle its
weapons program or at least
allow inspectors to ensure it is
"exclusively peaceful
In his annual report to the U.N.
General Assembly and In
comments to a few reporters, he said
Iran and North Korea highlight the
need for stepped-up global efforts
to ensure that declared nuclear
material is not diverted "for non-
peaceful purposes" and that "no
undeclared nuclear material or
activities exist
ElBaradei said the International
Atomic Energy Agency is "making
progress" in Iran but said Tehran
needs to restore confidence with
the international community by
suspending its enrichment program
after previously providing the IAEA
with information "that was at times
changing, contradictory, and slow
in coming
Iranian lawmakers shouting "Death
to America" unanimously approved
the outline of a bill Sunday that would
force the government to resume
uranium enrichment.
But Iran's top nuclear negotiator,
Hossein Mousavian, said a
compromise was possible.
He held out the prospect of Iran
suspending building additional
facilities to enrich uranium
into nuclear fuel if European
countries provide fuel for its
planned power plants.
Noting that negotiations between Iran
and the Europeans are still under way,
ElBaradei said, "I think Iran is, I hope,
ready to suspend
"Whether that will be ultimately
a total suspension, or something
else, I think this very much depends
on the kind of framework to be
agreed with the Europeans he
told reporters.
Asked whether there could be a
partial suspension, ElBaradei
said, "I think at this stage
we need a suspension" but he
indicated that whether it would
be indefinite or not would be part
of the negotiations.

Bush relishes last day of campaigning
President Bush and Red Sox pitch
The sun was still rising Monday
as President Bush began a six-
state, 19-hour marathon that
marked the last day of his presi-
dential campaign. Saying he was
"energized" by his supporters,
Bush said he was confident he
would win re-election.
"There is nothing like an
early-morning rally in the great
state of Ohio Bush exclaimed at
7:25 a.m his sixth straight day
in the state.
Bush flashed a thumbs-up
and cried "Oh, yeah as he
boarded Air Force One. The
chilling spoke in Ohio.
White House cranked up the
presidential pageantry for his last
full day on the road. Bush arrived
at his first event in Marine One,
the presidential helicopter - his
landing framed by the enormous
doors of an airplane hangar.
He won Ohio's 20 elec-
toral votes in 2000, but
Bush and Democrat John Kerry
are running neck-and-neck in
the polls. Bush's visit here was his
32nd as president; another visit is
likely on Election Day.
Ohio was the first stop on a
frenetic day of campaigning that
would trace an arc from the upper
Midwest to the Southwest, ending
in his home state of Texas.
"It's like that marathon
stretch, the finish line is in
sight Bush told reporters. "1 just
want to assure you that I have the
energy and the optimism and the
enthusiasm to cross the line The
president said he was confident
he would be re-elected.

port that I have received across

In Ohio, Bush addressed the
tens of thousands of people who
have lost jobs in Ohio during his
four years in office.
"I know the economy of this
state has been through a lot, but
we are moving in the right direc-
tion he said.
"To do so, we have to keep
your taxes low and I want you to
remind your friends and neigh-
bors that my opponent will raise

an intense grassroots battle to get
out the vote in Ohio, where the

priate measures necessary to
win more undecided voters and
"swing states or states where
the outcome could go either
way. Both Bush and Kerry have
made appearances in these states
several times.
People believe Ohio,
Pennsylvania and Florida will
be deciding factors in this
election, due to their Electoral
College value.
The Presidential Election
of 2000 brought the country
to a standstill when Al Gore
won the popular vote, but
George Bush won the Electoral
College. Experts say this elec-
tion could easily be another
2000, causing many to
question the fairness of the
Electoral College.
"If George W. Bush is reelected
president by the Electoral Col-
lege again, without winning
the popular vote again and we
have a two-term president that
never got the majority vote,
then there's going to be serious
discussion about overturning it
Morris said.
"Conversely, if John Kerry
wins the election without the
popular vote, then there's going
to be a discussion of change
With this election being so
competitive, very precise strategy
is required. Each candidate must
appeal to a large and diverse
group of people. The Bush vs.
Kerry election has centered oq
two main platforms, domestic
issues and the war on terror-
ism. On each side of the cam-
paign trail, the candidates either
garner or lose support on these
issues. Some voters will favor
President Bush solely because of
his stance on the war on terror,
Kerry supporters may not believe
Bush is being effective at home
or abroad.
Morris said these issues might
predict the outcome.
"If citizens cast their vote
solely based on safety and secu-
rity, then George W. Bush will be
the next president Morris said.
" If they're voting on domestic
Issues as well as safety and secu-
rity, then John Kerry will be the
next president
He said he does not know
what kind of outcome to expect,
but he expects the popular vote
to be close and it is possible the
Electoral College winner will not
be the popular winner.

Kerry vows to move fast
on national security if elected
Kerry made a last attempt to sway undecided voters Sunday.
� Democratic Sen. John Kerry
told The Associated Press Sunday
that if he is elected president,
he will begin a "flurry of activ-
ity" to protect national security
that will include quick Cabinet
"I'm going to make America
safer and I have some very strong
and real steps to take quite imme-
diately to make that happen
said Kerry in the 12-minute inter-
view aboard his campaign plane.
The Democratic challenger
declined to describe his plans to
find terrorist mastermind Osama
bin Laden and get out of the war
in Iraq, other than to say, "I will
get other people to the table
He said he was focused on
winning the election Tuesday
night and persuading undecided
voters to support him.
"I've got to talk to them as
candidate Kerry running for
president, not as president-elect
Kerry said.
With the outcome of the race
uncertain two days out, Kerry
kept switching between saying
"if I win" and "when I win
The Massachusetts senator said
he was tired after a two-year
campaign, but confident he
would win and impatient to get
to work on solving the country's
"1 think Americans are going
to vote for change Kerry said.
But he also entertained the
idea that he might lose to Presi-
dent Bush.
"The disappointment will
not be personally if I lost
Kerry said.
"But it would be I didn't get
the chance to do those things for
those folks that I wanted
Kerry said he is prepared to
raise legal challenges to prob-
lems at the polls that might
delay a final result as happened
in 2000.
"1 expect this election is
going to be decided Tuesday
night, but given experience I
would be irresponsible if I wasn't
prepared to be able to protect
every person's right to vote
Kerry said.
Both parties have dispatched
thousands of lawyers to observe
potentially troublesome precincts.
If Kerry is elected, the presi-
dency will go through its first
wartime transition since Lyndon
Johnson left office after Richard
Nixon was elected in 1968.
Kerry said he is not con-
cerned that the president is
preparing an attack in the Iraqi
city of Fallujah, which could
be carried out as Bush is a lame
duck before Kerry takes office
on Jan. 20. Kerry, who served in
combat during Vietnam, said he
would be available if the presi-
dent wanted to ask his advice
in that scenario.
Kerry said he's gotten
security briefings throughout
the campaign whenever he
requested them and he's been
pleased with the length and the
quality of each.
Kerry said if he wins, he
would begin putting his Cabinet
together as fast as he can. Some
names being mentioned for his
national security team include
former United Nations Ambas-
sador Richard Holbrooke and
Delaware Sen. Joe Biden, senior
Democrat on the Foreign Rela-
tions Committee.
"If the American people
make me president Tuesday,
they will see a flurry of activity
and leadership with respect to
our national security interests
that they've never seen, but I'm
going to wait until I'm there
Kerry said.
It is possible that this election
could be the second in a row
where one candidate wins the
popular vote and another gets a
majority in the Electoral College,
which chooses the president.
Even though Democrat Al Gore
lost to Bush under the system in
2000, Kerry said he still supports
the Electoral College as a way to
protect the interest of small states.
He also said he would keep
the White House Office of Faith-
Based and Community Ini-
tiatives created by Bush, but
would run it differently. He
said Bush's program steps over
a constitutional line because he
allowed religious activity as part
of the programs.
More U.S. troops were sent to Fallujah for a major offensive.

Suicide bomber strikes outdoor market in Tel Aviv
TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) � A
16-year-old Palestinian blew
himself up in a crowded outdoor
market in central Tel Aviv on
Monday, killing three Israelis
and wounding 32 in the first
such attack since Yasser Arafat
left last week for medical treat-
ment in France.
Arafat's absence has raised
concern about instability among
the Palestinians. Monday's blast,
the first suicide bombing since
September, signaled that Pales-
tinian militants are seeking to
set the pace.
Israel has said that while
the Palestinian leader is away it
would show restraint in its battle
with militants.
From his sickbed in a mili-
tary hospital near Paris, Arafat
condemned the bombing and
"appealed to all Palestinian
factions to commit to avoid
harming all Israeli civilians,
and he appealed to Sharon to
take similar initiatives to avoid
harming Palestinian civilians
said Arafat's spokesman Nabil
Abu Rdeneh.
Abu Rdeneh relayed the state-
ment to reporters as Arafat's wife,
Suha, dictated it to him over his
cell phone. Later, Arafat took the
phone from his wife and asked
Abu Rdeneh directly to make sure
the statement was circulated.
Abu Rdeneh told the 75-year-old
Arafat to take care of himself,
Israeli Prime Minister Ariel
Sharon said Israel "will not
stop its war against terrorism
and he reiterated his commit-
ment to his plan to withdraw
settlers and troops from the Gaza
Strip without negotiations with
the Palestinians.
"I'm not changing my policy
until there are changes in the
Palestinian administration and
until it stops its incitement and
its terror Sharon said.
The ground shook in Tel
Aviv's Carmel Market as the
explosion ripped through a dairy
store and damaged a neighboring
vegetable stall. The force of the
blast blew the store's sign away,
leaving loose wire dangling out
of the wall. Lettuce and parsley
were strewn on the pavement.
Paramedics treated dazed
shoppers and wheeled away
bodies in black plastic bags.
Rescue workers dug through piles
of cheese and spices inside the
store in search of body parts.
"I saw lots of people
lying on the ground, lots of
people wounded shopper
Michal Weizman, who was
about 30 feet away from the
blast, told Israel Army Radio.
"There was a woman whose
entire body was torn up
Police said four people were
killed, including the bomber.

Liberation of Palestine, a radical

PLO faction, claimed responsibil-
ity, identifying the assailant as
Eli Amer Alfar, from the Askar
refugee camp near the West Bank
city of Nablus.
Alfar's identity card showed
he was 16, making him one of
the youngest Palestinian suicide
bombers in the conflict.
"It's immoral to send some-
one so young said his mother,
Samir Abdullah.
"They should have sent
an adult who understands the
meaning of his deeds
Abdullah said that over the
past week she had noticed her
son acting strangely.
"I had a feeling that the boy
was undergoing some kind of
change she said.
"He would kiss my hand fre-
quently he would often ask me to
pray for him. He changed, but I
didn't believe he would carry out
an attack
Abdel Rahim, 53, Alfar's
father, said his son woke him up
early Monday and asked for two
shekels, about 50 cents, before
leaving the family home.
"Two shekels, that's what
boys ask for he said.
"He kissed me on the cheek
and hand and left and I went

BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) �
Gunmen assassinated Baghdad's
deputy governor on Monday,
and voter registration for vital
January elections began as fresh
American soldiers arrived in the
capital, reinforcements that will
push U.S. military strength in
Iraq to its highest level since the
summer of 2003.
West of the capital, U.S.
troops clashed with Sunni insur-
gents, and American artillery
pounded suspected insurgent
positions in Fallujah, witnesses
said. U.S. forces are gearing up
for a major offensive in Fal-
lujah if Iraqi mediation fails to
win agreement to hand over
foreign Arab fighters and other
U.S. and Iraqi officials hope
to curb the insurgency in Sunni
insurgent strongholds in time
for national elections by the
end of January. The order to
launch what would likely be a
bloody assault must come from
Prime Minister Ayad Allawi,
who warned Sunday that his
patience with negotiations was
Voter registration for the
January balloting began Monday.
In order to provide enough secu-
rity for the voting, Army units
slated to depart are being held
back until after the election.
The delays in departures and the
arrival of new units will push the
total U.S. military presence in
Iraq to around 142,000
In the capital, gunmen
opened fire on a car carrying
Baghdad province's deputy gov-
ernor, Hatim Kamil, to work
Monday morning, killing Kamil,
said Baghdad Governor Ali al-
Haidari. Two of Kaniils body-
guards were wounded, Interior
Ministry spokesman Col. Adnan
Abdul-Rahman said.
A known militant group,
the Ansar al-Sunnah Army,
claimed responsibility for Kamil's
"This is the fate of whoever
is aiding or supporting the cru-
saders against the Muslims and
mujahedeen the group said in
a statement posted on their Web
site. It was impossible to verify
the claim's authenticity.
Insurgents have killed dozens
of Iraqi politicians and govern-
ment workers in recent months
in a bid to destabilize the coun-
try's reconstruction.
The group also said it car-
ried out the assassination of
the deputy governor of Diyala
province on Friday in the central
Iraqi city of Baqouba. Unidenti-
fied gunmen killed Aqil Hamid

if WHO sets flu vaccine summit meeting to deal with pandemic threat
New York residents wait in line for reserved flu shots in Canada.
World Health Organization has
called an unprecedented summit
meeting of flu vaccine makers
and nations to expand plans for
dealing with the growing threat
of a flu pandemic.
Sixteen vaccine companies
and health officials from the
United States and other large
countries already have agreed
to attend the summit next week
in Geneva, Switzerland, on Nov.
11, said Klaus Stohr, influenza
chief of the United Nations'
health agency.
With increasing signs that
bird flu is becoming established
in Asia and several worrisome
human cases that can't be linked
directly to exposure to infected
poultry, it's only a matter of time
until such a virus adapts itself to
spread more easily from person
to person and cause a severe
worldwide outbreak, he said.
"We believe that we are closer
to the next pandemic than we
ever were Stohr said Sunday in
an interview before a speech at an
American Society for Microbiol-
ogy meeting in Washington, D.C.
The world's total capacity
for flu vaccine now is only 300
million doses, and it would take
at least six months to develop a
new vaccine to fight a pandemic.
The WHO wants to get "all issues
on the table monetary and sci-
entific, that prevent getting more
vaccine more quickly, he said.
"If we continue as we are now,
there will be no vaccine available,
let alone antivirals, when the
next pandemic starts Stohr said.
"We have a window of opportu-
nity now to prepare ourselves
Flu kills about 36,000 people
in the United States and a mil-
lion worldwide each year by
conservative estimates, Stohr
said. But tens of millions die in
a pandemic, which occurs every
20 to 30 years, when a flu strain
changes so dramatically that
people have little immunity
from previous flu bouts.
There were three pandem-
ics in the 20th century; all
spread worldwide within a year
of being detected.
The worst was the Spanish flu
in 1918-19, when as many as 50
million people worldwide were
thought to have died, nearly half
of them young, healthy adults.
More than 500,000 died in the
United States.
The 1957-58 Asian flu caused
about 70,000 deaths in the United
States, followed by the 1968-69
Hong Kong flu, which caused
about 34,000 U.S. deaths.
The current vaccine shortage
in the United States, caused by
loss of one of the country's two
major flu shot suppliers, reveals
how vulnerable the world is and
serves as a "dress rehearsal" for
the kind of rationing and emer-
gency measures that would be
needed in a pandemic, said Dr.
Wendy Keitel of Baylor College
of Medicine in Houston.
"The ability to respond with
the production of billions of doses
of vaccine is quite limited Keitel
said. "We need to think through
these problems now. Ninety
percent of vaccines are produced
in 10 countries that have 10 per-
cent of the world's population
The United States is the only
nation that has commissioned
work on potential pandemic
bird flu vaccines, Stohr noted.
The National Institutes of Health
has given Aventis Pasteur and
Chiron Corp. contracts to pro-
duce prototype bird flu vaccines
that are expected to be ready
for human tests late this year.
Aventis already has made 8,000
doses at its plant in Swiftwater,
Pa Chiron is making its doses at
a factory in Europe, not the one
in Britain that regulators shut
down last month, causing the
U.S. vaccine shortage.
If a pandemic occurred and
a vaccine wasn't ready, antiviral
drugs could play a key role in slow-
ing its spread, said Dr. Frederick
Hayden, a University of Virginia
virus expert who has researched
and consulted on many flu
vaccines and drugs including
oseltamivir, or Tamiflu, which
showed some activity against
bird flu in lab experiments.
It, too, is in short supply.
"It's hard to get explicit num-
bers but the production capac-
ity worldwide is very limited
making it difficult to develop
an international stockpile that
could be used in a pandemic,
Hayden said.
The WHO has 120,000 pack-
ages of the drug, Stohr said, and
the United States is stockpiling
several million doses.
"That will not go very far" he
said, but if targeted to a region
where a pandemic was breaking
out, "we might be able to buy
time" and limit its spread while a
vaccine was being readied, he said.
Bird flu actually describes
three deadly strains of avian
influenza, which have wiped out
millions of chickens in Asia. So
far they have not spread easily
from person to person but have
been very deadly to those who
have become infected. They're
named and numbered for the
two "H" and "N" proteins on the
surface of the virus.
The first strain, H5N1,
appeared in Hong Kong in 1997,
causing 18 human infections and
six deaths. It reappeared last year
and so far this year has caused
44 human cases and 32 deaths
throughout Asia, according to
A second strain, H9N2,
appeared in 1999 in Hong
Kong and China, and caused
two human cases in Hong
Kong last year. A third strain,
H7N7 appeared in 2003
in the Netherlands.
ernor for projects affairs, as he
was sitting in a friend's office.
Last week, al-Adili warned of
insurgent infiltration in the Iraqi
security services after the deadly
ambush of 50 U.Strained Iraqi
soldiers Oct. 23 in an eastern
part of Diyala province near the
Iran border.
The unarmed soldiers,
dressed in civilian clothing,
had been heading home on leave
when they were stopped at a fake
rebel checkpoint Saturday and
killed execution-style.
Allawi cited that attack in
televised comments to journal-
ists on Sunday in which he
insisted "terrorists" behind some
of Iraq's worst violence must be
uprooted from Fallujah.
In a speech that seemed aimed
at preparing the Iraqi public for
an onslaught, Allawi warned of
civilian casualties, saying that if
he orders an assault, it would be
with a "heavy heart
"But I owe, owe it to the Iraqi
people to defend them from
the violence and the terrorists
and insurgents he said. Com-
manders have estimated that
up to 5,000 Islamic militants,
Saddam Hussein loyalists and
common criminals are holed up
in Fallujah.
In a position that appeared
to contrast with Allawi's, the
country's interim president said
a military assault was the wrong
solution, according to an inter-
view published Monday.
President Ghazi al-Yawer, a
Sunni Muslim, told the Kuwaiti
daily Al-Qabas that dialogue
must continue and that insur-
gents "want nothing but a mili-
tary solution, and the continua-
tion of bleeding among Iraqis
Meanwhile, heavy clashes
between U.S. forces and insur-
gents continued Monday in
K.iiii.idi, an insurgent stronghold
70 miles west of Baghdad.
A bomb in Ramadi on Sunday
killed one Marine and wounded
four others, the military said.
The blast brought to nine the
number of Marines killed in
the area over the weekend. At
least 1,121 members of the U.S.
military have died since the
beginning of the Iraq war in
March 2003, according to an
AP count.
In Monday's fighting in
Ramadi, one woman was killed
and her two children injured,
hospital officials said.
Also killed was an Iraqi free-
lance television cameraman who
provided material to Associated
Press Television News, believed
to be the 24th journalist killed
in Iraq this year.

Our View
At some point during the academic year
it seems that all students tend to get a
bit restless.
We feel as though many of us have
reached that point this week.
Without a doubt, registration is a time of
immense stress and for many students,
Whether a senior or a freshman, we can
all relate to getting up at the crack of
dawn to try to beat every other student
to the terminal in an effort to get the
classes you need to get out of here.
Many wake up early to discover that
there is no way they can get into the
classes they need. Know that this is not
Yes, the process is frustrating. TEC feels
as though the faculty and staff at ECU
makes a valiant effort to make registra-
tion week go as smoothly as possible.
We thank the many university employ-
ees who show up to work early to get
students registered as quickly as pos-
We appreciate the patience many advis-
ers displayed with regard to common
registration questions.
We know your job is not easy, it just
means a great deal that many of you
Thanksgiving break will prove to be
a well-deserved break for students,
faculty and staff.
Though It is a brief vacation, it will serve
as a break to help rejuvenate students
and professors for the stress of finals.

ing place isn't just around the block.
I've even overheard some people on
campus whining because they think
that the county should bring the poll-

go out of their way to vote. Poor babies!
Why don't you quit your whining,
get off your lazy butts, take the time
out of your precious schedules, act like
a responsible adult and go vote? Is that
You know, I am willing to bet that
the whining is mostly coming from
liberals. Conservatives know their civic
responsibilities and are willing to carry
them out.
Anyway, for those who are looking
forward to what has been called my
weekly 'neo-conservative, fascist rants'
by the more eloquent, if not imagina-
tive, readers, I will not disappoint.
Here goes:
Wasn't it hilarious when Kerry, after
almost a week of trashing the president
and the military daily in his speeches
for supposedly "losing" about 350 tons
of explosives in Iraq all of a sudden quit
flapping his lips about it and pulled
any mention of it off his Web site?
Wasn't it?
It seems like Kerry, and his media
allies have once again been caught run-
ning with a story that was designed to
hurt the president with little basis in
truth. And when the truth did start
emerging, Kerry was once again caught
with his foot so deep in his mouth you
could smell his foot powder when he
passed gas.
It seems that there is a very good
probability that the explosives in
question w,eie definitely removed
from where it was by our own
troops. And after being taken away,
it was destroyed. Along with hundreds
of thousands of tons of other ammu-
nition and explosives found secreted
in Iraq.
Yep, that's right. We have found the
thieves and they appear to be us. Do
you smell foot powder?
It has been said before, and I have
no qualms about repeating it now: John
Kerry is an idiot. Or the people advis-
ing him are.
John Kerry has been steadily losing
support among traditional Democrat
voting blocs such as Blacks, Hispan-
ics, Jews, Cubans, union workers and
many others. States that for decades
have been "blue" (Democrat) states are
now so close that Kerry has to spend
time trying to shore up a non-existent
And how, pray tell, does our hope-
ful future commander-in-chief and
leader of the greatest nation on earth go
about trying to do so? By insulting and
calling into question the competence
of the very men and women who are
fighting and dying that he hopes to
one-day lead. If that is not the epitome
of lack of good judgment, I do not know
what is.
Of course, Kerry has proven he has
no use for the military, unless it is under
a UN banner. So I guess he thought
he had nothing to lose by calling our
troops incompetent. He has very little
support in the military anyhow, so why
not take the shot?
He did, he lost.
I have asked many, many people to
give me at least one reason why they
are voting for John Kerry. Not a single
person has been able to do so. All I have
heard is the same rehashed garbage
about what people claim President Bush
supposedly did or did not do and how
"things need to change
Voting against someone is not the
same as voting for someone.
The media and the Democrats have
tried desperately for more than four
years to smear or otherwise ruin Presi-
dent Bush. Every single attempt has led
nowhere. All accusations made against
him have been proven false, or based
on knowingly false information. And
through this unprecedented period of
attack after attack he has stayed the
course he said he would and remained
firm in his faith and convictions.
President George Bush is an honest,
dedicated and trustworthy person. He
has proven to be a steady leader who
does not compromise his convictions.
He says what he means and does what
he says. These qualities are what are
needed in the person who leads our
nation into the future. These are rea-
sons to vote for somebody.
Can anybody honestly say that
John Kerry possesses even one of these
qualities? Anybody?
Then why would you vote for

In My Opinion
Remember, we're electing a president
(KRT) � So, finally, we've come to
the end of all the talk and hype (and
occasional insight) about religion in
this presidential race. And what always
happens is happening again: Voters will
decide what it all means for making
their choice.
But as we head to the polls, I think
it's worthwhile to remind ourselves:
We are electing a president, not a
pope, bishop, priest, rabbi, minister,
imam, elder or deacon. As much as
many of us hope that whoever is elected
will be morally upright and guided by
eternal values, the measure of the man
as officeholder should not be his piety
but, rather, his competence in leading
this vast and diverse nation in a danger-
ous world and his commitment to the
nation's foundational values of human
freedom and dignity.
The president's first job is not to
preach sermons to save souls from eter-
nal damnation but to protect the lives
of Americans so they may live freely.
As a nation, we are in the midst of
a remarkable religious change. Immi-
gration reform signed into law by
President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1965
has brought millions of people here
from Asia, Africa, Latin America and
elsewhere. They have brought many
religions and cultural traditions with
them, including distinctive ways of
being Christian. So Muslims, Hindus,
Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Zoroastrians
and others increasingly are part of the
nation's fabric, which also includes
a growing number of people with no
formal connection to religion.
Our political leaders must under-
stand these changing dynamics and
help keep society from degenerating
into the sectarian hatred and violence
that has set many parts of the globe
aflame. This certainly is an area in
which our leaders need to be uniters,
not dividers.
It's crucial that we understand why
the idea of the separation of church and
state, while not explicit in the Constitu-
tion, is nonetheless deeply embedded
there. Our founders were worried not
that religious people would offer their
ideas in the political marketplace. They
expected that they would, and they
couldn't imagine a country in which
that didn't happen.
Rather, they were trying to keep the
state out of the church because they
worried the government would try to
control religion and regulate its beliefs
and actions. That's what the founders,
most of whom had profound religious
commitments, wanted to avoid, not the
religious zealot with political ideas.
That said, when government grants
religious groups tax-exempt status,
those groups are obliged to abide by
certain quite reasonable rules. One is
that they will not, in effect, become
political parties, endorsing specific
candidates or being overtly political
in other ways.
A wide spectrum of religious leaders
seems to have forgotten that this year.
Oh, they usually were careful to stick
to the letter of the law, but they often
crushed its spirit by tightly defining who
constitutes an acceptable candidate.
I thought St. Louis Post-Dispatch
columnist Bill McClellan had the right
idea when he suggested recently that
Democrats whose church leaders have,
in effect, told them to vote for Republi-
cans (or vice versa) consider whether to
continue giving money to that church.
McClellan ultimately (and wisely)
suggested not leaving one's faith com-
munity or abandoning one's financial
commitment to it because of politics.
But it wouldn't hurt to send a letter
to the offending pastor or bishop, asking
if he or she also thinks church contribu-
tions from Democrats (or Republicans)
are too tainted to accept.
If your polling place is in a house
of worship, consider sending a note
there after the election thanking the
congregation for offering space for this
vital process.
The list of politicians throughout
history who have proclaimed or at least
believed they were doing the Lord's
work is long. Many were delusional.
Some did more good than evil, but
none was perfect. None ever will be.
Is this presidential election any
more or less important than the one in
1944 or 1960 or 1800 or 1860 or 1992?
It's a moot question. The assumption
behind it is that if it is not as important
as those elections, we need not bother
to vote.

Iron Pour draws national artists
Universities across
state participate .
The Iron Pour in the sculpture
department at the ECU School
of Art is one Halloween tradi-
tion that should be advertised.
Every Halloween the sculpture
department fires up a furnace to
melt down hundred's of pounds
of iron to use for sculptures. An
extremely dangerous undertak-
ing, participants have to wear
protective gear from head to toe
to shield themselves from flying
sparks, metal and melted iron.
Curious onlookers, friends
and students from other depart-
ments, came to watch the hot
orange metal pour out of the
furnace. Some students who were
walking by Jenkins Art Building
had to poke their heads over the
wall to see what was going on.
"We always wait until night
because it is a pyrotechnic
show said Carl Billingsley,
the department coordinator.
Built by students Tripp Jarvis
and James Davis, the furnace
stands about 7 feet and can
melt about 200 pounds of iron
in 15 to 20 minutes. This is
actually small in comparison
to a commercial furnace that
can be three to four stories tall.
The Iron Pour gathers stu-
dents and artists from all over
the country. Appalachian, UNC
Wilmington and Chapel Hill
are a few schools that travel to
Greenville. Artists have jour-
neyed from as far as Buffalo,
New York and Chicago, 111.
"We get a lot of our own
alumni, friends and colleagues
from around the country. It
shows the value of the expe-
rience for people in terms of
making our art because any
metal casting is extremely
difficult Billingsley said.
It requires about five people
to run the furnace. Broken pieces
of iron are added from the top of
the furnace where hot blue and
orange flames spurt out. Once
the furnace is shut, someone
else stands by to make sure it is
running efficiently. When the
metal is ready to pour, a hole
is created in the spout using a
hammer and chisel to begin the
flow of the melted iron, while
two more people stand by to
hold a large crucible in which to
pour the iron. Once the crucible �
is filled, the molds are poured. jjj
Molds are made out of sand
and a bonding resin and can weigh
anywhere up to 450 pounds.
Once molds have cooled down
they are moved to make room for
more molds to be poured.

Group to broaden
students'musical taste
Three acclaimed musicians
will take the stage at Fletcher
Recital Hall Saturday night. The
men come together from several
different backgrounds to form
an award winning collabora-
tion, and offer classical music
to all, even college students,
some of which may not listen
to the genre. Stephen Clapp,
Darrett Adkins and Joseph
Schwartz, alone are amaz-
ing musicians, but together
they form The Oberlin Trio.
Formed in 1982, the three
men sat down together one
night to play an evening of
chamber music. Surprised at
the sound that came forth from
their instruments, the men
decided to form an ensemble.
The men had already played
more than 1,000 concerts com-
bined, and so with that experi-
ence they formed to create an
inspirational sound. The men
now travel internationally to
perform for the masses, and to
keep the love of classical music
Stephen Clapp, a violinist,
has an impressive resume upon
which to rely. He has won the
coveted Walter H. Naumburg
First Chamber Music Award and
the Josef Gingold Prize of the
Cleveland Society for Strings.
Mr. Clapp traveled around the
world directing and performing
in orchestras and ensembles for
years before he joined The Ober-
lin Trio. He studied for many
years at The Julliard School

Blu Moon Film Festival brings film makers to ECU

The Blu Moon Independent
Film Festival is completely driven
by students, for students.
"The purpose of the film
festival is to bring culture of
independent films to ECU's
campus said Faith Dover,
the director of Blu Moon Film
This festival creates an
awesome chance for students to
be aware, enjoy and appreciate
what ECU's film students are
According to the Blue Moon
Web site, "The Blu Moon Film
Festival is all about the art of
motion images. No contests.
No prizes. Just lots of film and
Anyone can enter their film
in the festival. Students, locals
or professionals from Califor-
nia to New York, or even world
wide, can enter. Even though It
Is called a "contest there is not
competition between the films.
Films will be acknowledged as
favorites, but there are no cash
prizes awarded. Also, there are no
entry fees for the contest.
Many students have heard of
this festival, but don't really know
what it is and when, where, etc.
It will be in April 2005 and most
likely in the new science building
behind the Bate building. Anyone
and everyone is invited. There are
no cover charges. It will be a few
hours in order to watch all the
films, so make it a day event.
"There needs to be more
publicity for it. Not enough
students even know what it
is said Erica Carter, a senior
communication major.
In order to enter, there are a
few requirements for the films.
Films have a 20 minute time
limit. No film can exceed the 20
minute time frame. DVD, VHS or
mini dv format are the only ways
a film can be recorded. Also, do
not give turn in the original copy
to the festival. Accidents always
happen and the Blu Moon Film
Festival will not be responsible
for damages or lost films.
Dover has recommended that
students or anyone who wishes
to enter a film, should do It as
soon as possible. The earlier films
are entered allows for less chaos
when April comes and a better
chance for one's film to really be
watched closely and appreciated.
Anyone who wants to enter a
film, send it to Faith Dover, Blu
Moon Festival at 210 N. Library
St. Greenville, NC 27858.
A popular film from last year
was by an ECU student, James
Davis. It was titled The Next Level
that had a twilight zone feel
where a boy gets too involved In
video games. The boy gets sucked
into the TV screen and cannot
get out.
Robert Hackney, from North
Carolina School of the Arts
in Wlnston-Salem, created an
actiondrama about a gas station
being robbed with a twist. The
gas station attendant was also
robbing the gas station at the
same time. He wrote and directed
this film.
"My personal favorite came
from Gorman Bechard from
Connecticut. He is a writer who
directed a short film called The
Pretty (lirl, which is all in still
photos. This one was a very
artistic story about a girl who was
killed metaphorically because she
was pretty Dover said.
Another example is a film by
a man named Jonathan Soronen
from Wilmington. He wrote,
produced and acted in his film
called Caught in the Act. It was
a funny American Pie type tale
where a guy's parents are out of
town and he has his girlfriend
over and they are caught in
the act.
Last year, the festival was
held outside the new science
building, and is most likely
going to be the same this year.
The festival ran about three
hours last year as well. One
of thethingsthat might changethis

Despite the optimism, a tre-

Spirits are high for young drinkers, but beer gets left out in the cold
Every student gets a chance
to participate in every aspect of
the pour: from dumping pieces of
iron into the furnace, to shovel-

"In a way it Is a team effort.
It is a great educational tool. Not
only is it fun but a great way to

Adam Adcock, sculpture
graduate student explains that
one process to make a metal
sculpture involves creating a
wax form or sculpture. This is
then set in resin-bonded sand to
create a mold.
This mold is then placed into a
kiln where the wax melts out, leav-

The melted iron is poured

ately obvious that many of the
pieces ranging from ceramics,
glass, to metal design, wood
design, painting, drawing
photography and all in between,
seem to be expressions of the
artist's feelings, emotions or
visual interprettions of something
happening in their lives at the
time they created their piece.
One piece on display is a
series of photographs called
"Buenos Aires Tango Series by
Richard Tichich a professor In
the ECU Art Department; these
photographs were done in gelatin
silver print.
Although these pictures were
shot in black and white, the emo-
tion being portrayed adds the
right amount of "color" to bring
the images to life.
The "Tango Series" can be
described as "sexy" and "saucy"
- they show various couples
dancing the tango in what looks
to be a Spanish night club of
some sort, there is a band play-
ing in the background with an
audience watching the dancers
off the stage.
Lexie Moreland, a fourth
year photography communica-
tion-arts student, who works in
the gallery said, "Every year this
exhibition is something that
everyone looks forward to, it's
always an exciting and impres-
sive show
Moreland feels that each
professor should be given a lot of
credit for their work, "the faculty
spends so much time helping us
grow as artists, and we get an
opportunity to see what they do
It's obvious after talking to this
student that she appreciates
and values the time and effort
that her teachers over the years
have devoted to helping young
artists, such as herself polish
their talent.
One of those devoted
professors that Moreland was
making reference to could be
Anne Melanie, also the academic
advisor for this department.
Melanie had on display her
work called "Healthy Wealthy
and Wise which is a leather
enclosed glass case that
holds 40 vitamin bottles,
some having gold-leafed
labels, and others having the
labels removed, each of the bottle
caps were also painted gold.
When viewing this piece it is
not directly apparent what the
artist was trying to say, however
when speaking to the artist It all
becomes clear.
Melanie said that "this piece
Is not indicative of my work
She is certainly right, being that
her "specialty" lays in her large
scale welded steel work that can
be found all over ECU'S campus,
one of her most popular pieces Is
entitled "Cathedral which can
be found on the side lawn of the
Jenkins building.
When talking of "Healthy
Wealthy and Wise Melanie
also said that "This piece
is sort of a play on words; I
took all of the vitamins
from each of those bottles She
said that, "most of my profes-
sional work is based on windows
and doors, and void and mass
"When I was a child I had
five brothers, I always felt like
I was on the other side of
the "glass" because they
wouldn't let me play with them
said Moreland.
However, for the exhibition
the reason she put such an oppo-
site piece on display than that
of which she would normally
create Is because, "this
shows that I have a life
outside of work, its like my
research that my students have
access to, just as English majors
could go check out their English

(KRT) �Just shy of her 22nd
birthday, Kelly Bannen Is the type
of customer that big brewers such
as Anheuser-Busch Inc. and Miller
Brewing Co. pay dearly to reach.
Bannen's age group, people
21 to 24, account for 30 percent
of the nation's beer consumption.
Get "em while they're young,
and you could win a lifelong
customer, marketing experts say.
There's just one problem:
Bannen is among a growing
number of young drinkers who
don't like beer.
"I think it tastes really
bitter said Bannen, a senior at
Marquette University in
Wisconsin. "I like sweeter things
to drink
Since 2000, beer's share of the
overall alcohol beverage market
has eroded, while the share held
by wine and spirits has gained
ground, according to New York-
based consulting firm Beverage
Marketing Corp.
Much of beer's decline is tied
to inroads that sellers of vodka,
tequila and other spirits have
made with consumers in their
20s. Propelled by aggressive
marketing, a new generation of
drinkers is showing a growing
preference for sweeter drinks, such
as martinis and other cocktails
made with fruit-flavored spirits.
Some of those drinkers,
including men, who account
for over 80 percent of U.S. beer
consumption, still imbibe a frosty
brew. But they are less loyal to
suds, and more willing to spend
an evening at the clubs sampling
a wide range of concoctions.
"They have a great thirst for
variety said Robert Lachky,
Anheuser-Busch vice president
of brand management.
St. Louis-based Anheuser-
Busch launched a new beer in
early October spiked with caf-
feine, ginseng and fruit flavors to
help broaden its appeal to young
consumers. Other new drinks may
follow, said executives at the com-
pany, the nation's largest brewer.
Meanwhile, Adolph Coors Co
based in Golden, Colo Is touting
two new fruit-flavored versions of
its Zfma flavored malt beverage.
Miller, for now, is largely
avoiding such new products and
remains focused on selling beer.
Company executives believe they
can grab more customers, includ-
ing young ones, by continuing
to focus on core brands such as
Miller Lite. Miller also is ramping
up its aggressive program of con-
ducting sampling promotions at
bars and clubs - something spirits
distillers have also used during
their recent growth spurt.

Pinkney, Good hook up
three times for scores
The roller coaster ride of a
season continued for ECU'S Foot-
ball Team on Saturday afternoon.
At least this week the Pirates are
on the upswing. A season of twist
and turns culminated in Dowdy-
Ficklen Stadium with the Pirates
reaching the highest peak in the
John Thompson era.
The Pirates dominated the
Black Knights 38-28 to gain the
second home win in a row. ECU
(2-5, 2-3) used 31 second-half
points to take out some pent-up
frustration on Army (2-5, 2-4).
Most of those second-half
points can be attributed to sopho-
more signal caller James Pinkney.
The composed quarterback com-
pleted 72 percent of his passes
going 26-of-36 for 285 yards.
"1 felt like I was in a zone
today said Pinkney.
"Guys were open all day and
they made plays
The humble Pinkney also
notched three touchdowns, all of
which went to fellow sophomore
Bobby Good.
"I should have had four said
Good in reference to a touch-
down he dropped.
"I knew I could get open
against this defense. We had fun
and I just played
The three-touchdown day
for Good was the first time a
Pirate had caught three touch-
downs since Mitchell Galloway
grabbed three scoring passes
against South Carolina Oct. 8,
1994. After dropping two crucial
passes, Good finished with eight
catches for 118 yards.
"I'm so proud of Good said
Head Coach John Thompson.
"It just shows his maturity.
Before, he would not have come
back and made those plays. He
didn't go in the tank and he made
some big time catches
Fellow receivers Brian Howard
and Kevin Roach also made plays
when they needed to. Howard fin-
ished with six catches for 50 yards.
Bobby Good celebrates with fellow sophomore receiver Brian Howard after one of his three touchdowns against Army.
"We realized as a group that
we needed to step up said Roach
who had three critical third-
down catches.
"Our guys have done that
"Everybody stepped up
today Pinkney said.
"They have been taking a
lot of heat lately, but everybody
came to play today
Coming off the embarrassing
loss to Southern Miss last week,
Thompson used the word 'fox-
hole' to explain what his team
has had to do to keep focus.
"This has been a hard Week
Thompson said in reference to
the 51-10 loss in Hattiesburg.
"Our guys have had to walk
around campus with everyone
taking shots at them. Our guys
didn't pay attention to that. I'm
really proud of this football team
The football team made the
29,111 fans in attendance proud.
However, it didn't look like it
would be that way early. Army
struck first blood on their third
offensive play from scrimmage
on a Carlton Jones 14-yard run.

ECU wins fifth straight game,
finishes fourth in conference
ECU will play Duquesne Nov. 19 at home at 7 p.m.
Women's PurpleGold
goes down to wire
Junior forward Meghan McCallion finished the regular season with a team-high 10 goals.
Lady Pirates ready for
C-USA tournament
With a 2-1 win against South
Florida Friday, the women's
soccer team ended an amazing
run. The ladles won their fifth
straight game, matching a school
record set in 1999.
ECU'S game against USF, like
most of their games this season,
started off slow. A scoreless first
half left the Lady Bulls a little
desperate. Needing a win to make
the conference tournament, USF
turned up the pressure to scoreand
take the lead. This backfired as
freshman Lindsey DiLuzio found
junior Meghan McCallion with
only one defender to beat. She
succeeded in doing just that and
beat the keeper to take the lead.
McCallion would not be
done. Just nine minutes later,
she received a pass from senior
Krystal Pabey and scored her
second goal of the day. ECU
would only give up one goal and
held off for a 2-1 win. Pabey,
along with Rachelle Cabeceiras,
Sarah Stoltz and Megan Schwanke
were honored as seniors and for
their career as Pirates. There
may be no greater gift for these
seniors than to continue the
teams' winning streak during
the conference tournament.
The win boosted the Pirates
into a tie for fourth place in
Conference USA with Louisville.
But since ECU beat the Cardinals,
ECU will get the fourth seed.
Although the Lady Pirates
get the fourth seed, they will
still play Louisville, the fifth
seed. The only advantage the tie-
breaker gives ECU is that it makes
the Lady Pirates the home team.
But since the tourney is in St.
Louis, the ladles won't have any
true advantage to speak of.
However, the Lady Pirates
do have the upperhand on
Louisville, a team ECU
defeated earlier this season in
double overtime 3-2. Also, the
Cardinals have struggled as of
late. At one point, they were in
second place in the conference.
If the Pirates break the
school record with their sixth
consecutive win, they will likely
run into top seeded St. Louis. St.
Louis defeated the Lady Pirates
earlier in the season 3-0.
If St. Louis were upset in
the first round, ECU would play
DePaul, who they shut out 4-0.
With two wins, the Lady Pirates
would advance to the champion-
ship game and would see Mem-
phis, UAB, Charlotte or Marquette.
UAB, the second seed, is the
favorite to win their side of their
bracket and advance to the title
game. ECU did not play UAB this
season, lost to both Charlotte and
Memphis and tied Marquette.
The tournament starts
Wednesday at noon with the
Lady Pirates in action at 5 p.m.
The semifinal games will take
place Thursday at 5 p.m. and
7:30 p.m. with ECU playing in
the later game. The conference
championship game takes place
Saturday at 1 p.m. with the
winner receiving an automatic
bid to the NCAA tournament.

Jackson hits winning
shot in waning seconds
The ECU women's basketball
team competed in their annual
Purple and Gold scrimmage last
Saturday. It was the fans' first
opportunity to see the Lady
Pirates in action and their first
look at the new Pirates.
The game proved to be both
exciting and competitive. Both
teams played great press defense
and came out strong offensively.
Purple came out firing in the first
half, led by Samantha Pankey's
13 points who was perfect from
behind the arc. However, Gold
also came out with a vengeance
behind Jennifer Jackson's nine
first-half points. The score was
tied 28-28 at halftime.
The second half proved to be
just as exciting as both teams kept
the defensive pressure up and
kicked the intensity into high
gear. Purple began to mount a
lead behind the play of Ebonee
Downey, who dropped 12 points
and grabbed seven boards by
game's end.
The game would go down to
the wire as a familiar face drilled
the winning shot for Gold. With
two seconds left In the game
Purple was hoping their two-
point lead would hold but as time
winded down, Jackson hit a three
pointer with 1.2 seconds left to
lift Gold over Purple.
Jackson had a game-high
21 points, and shot 3-of-7 from
downtown, including the last-
second three-pointer.
"We all played well today
and I think that we are start-
ing out well this season said
Jennifer Jackson.
"Hopefully we will continue
on the track that we are on now
and be better than last season
Also pitching in for the Gold
team was senior Viola Cooper
who poured in 10 points and
junior Latoya Horton with eight
points. Shakira Clarke also had a
solid game as she snagged seven
rebounds and added five points.
Senior Samantha Pankey
couldn't quite match her team-
mate Jackson for the Purple but
did lead her side in scoring with
13 points. She shot 5-of-9 from
the field and was perfect from
behind the arc (3-3).
Third-year Head Coach

Good touchdown pass.

Army retook the lead 11:03
into the third quarter on Jones'
second rushing touchdown of
the day. Jones finished the day
with 21 carries for 87 yards.
"We took it upon ourselves to

cornerback Erodejean about the
ECU defense.
"Giving up 51 points last
week, that's not ECU defense
After an ECU 11-play drive
to take back the lead on a Chris
Johnson four-yard scamper,
the Pirates swung the momen-
tum. Senior cornerback Donald
Whitehead recovered a fumble
deep in Army territory. Just three
plays later, the Pirates capitalized
to go up 24-14.
On the ensuing kickoff D.J.
Blackledge returned the sky kick
69 yards for a touchdown.
"I'm going to have to look at
the tape Thompson said.
"I don't know how that guy
squirted out of there. It must have
been Halloween a little too early
The Pirates responded just
three plays later. Art Brown found
the end zone from 48 yards out.
It was the first touchdown for
Brown since he scored four at
Houston on Nov. 9, 2002.
ECU took complete control
when Good made a circus catch
over his shoulder and found the
end zone on a 46-yard strike.
"The knock on me is that 1
don't have any speed Good said.
"After I caught (it, I made
sure the coaches knew that I
had some speed. I couldn't have

After stopping Army on a
fourth-down attempt, ECU ran
the ball and the clock down.
Townes finished with 20 carries
for 77 yards. Brown finished with
47 yards and Johnson notched
39 yards.
"That's the way we need to
play those guys Brindise said
about all three running backs
being rotated.
"This is the first game that
we've had all of them healthy.
All three of them are talented
and unselfish players. I'm happy
with all three of them
Army quarterback Zac
Dahman was hounded by the
ECU defense all day. Dahman
finished with 230 yards on 17-

misleading because Dahman
completed a meaningless 78-
yard pass after the game was out
of reach.

If that's the worst problem
Thompson finds, then he and

The next three games are all

home for Memphis.
"It feels good to get a win to get

AP � A drug overdose killed
former NL MVP Ken Caminiti,
who admitted using steroids
during his playing days and
tested positive for cocaine in the
days before he died.
Coronary artery disease and
an enlarged heart were listed
as contributing factors in the
death of Caminiti, Grace Brug-
ess, spokeswoman for the New
York City Medical Examiner, said
Monday. She said the death had
been ruled an accident.
The 15-year major league
veteran, who won the NL MVP
award in 1996, admitted in a
Houston court just days before he
died that he had tested positive
for cocaine. Caminiti, 41, died
Oct. 10 in the Bronx.
Tissue and toxicology tests
! confirmed Caminiti's cause of
, death as "acute intoxication
due to the combined effects of
cocaine and opiates Brugess
said. She said those drugs had
weakened his heart.
Opiates are drugs that tend to
have a sedative effect on the body
- as opposed to cocaine, which is
marked by rapid heart race and
other accelerated effects.
In 2002, Caminiti told Sports
Illustrated that he used steroids
during his 1996 MVP season,
when he hit .326 with 40 home

runs and 130 RBIs. He estimated
about half of major league players
also were using them at the time.
Caminiti retired in 2001 after
a career that included two stints
with the Houston Astros, four
years with the Padres and brief
tours with the Texas Rangers and
Atlanta Braves.
He returned to baseball this
year as a spring training instruc-
tor with the Padres. His lawyer
said after his death that Caminiti
had hoped eventually to mentor
young players about avoiding the
mistakes he made.

Lady Pirates upset Tough questions surfacing for Paterno
C-USA rival 49ers
ECU will face two more conference opponents this weekend.
Lady Pirates come up
big in C-USA win
The ECU Volleyball Team
set out to prove they were not
to be taken lightly last weekend,
as they traveled away to face in-
state rival Charlotte. The Lady
Pirates were coming off of a 3-0
sweep of Southern Miss and were
looking to extend their winning
streak this weekend against the
18-9 Lady 49ers.
ECU kicked off the first game
coming out strong, racking up 19
kills. Overall, the Lady Pirates hit
an impressive .643 as a team in
their way to the win, 30-19.
In game two, ECU went
on two scoring runs 7-1 and
6-0 to put away Charlotte in
the second straight game, this
time winning 30-25. ECU fresh-
man Mignon Dubenion gave
a strong serving performance
early in the game to help lead
her team to another victory.
Just when the Lady Pirates
were looking to put away Char-
lotte and win their second straight
sweep, the Lady 49ers bounced
back. With 16 kills, Charlotte
out-played ECU offensively in
game three and won 30-21.
With just one more game
to win for their second straight
match, the Lady Pirates grew
frustrated in game four as the
Lady 49ers again came away with
another win, tying up the series.
ECU was out-hit .250, 026 in
their second loss of the night.
It once again came down to
whether or not ECU was going
to be able to close out the series.
The ability to close out games is
what ECU Head Coach Colleen
Munson has stressed all season,
and it's what has determined the
outcome to many matches this
year. Heading into the fifth and
decisive match, the Lady Pirates
kept this in mind as they stepped
onto the court.
ECU junior Paige Howell was
able to step it up in the clutch
leading her team with three kills
and two blocks as they went on
to win game five, 15-11. The win
gave ECU their second straight
conference win and a record
of 10-14 (4-5). The victory also
gave the Lady Pirates their most
conference wins since joining
Conference USA in 2001.
This weekend ECU will con-
tinue their away schedule as they
face two more conference oppo-
nents, Louisville and Cincinnati.
With momentum on their side,
the Lady Pirates will be looking
to extend their winning streak to
three, their longest of the year.

Joe Paterno's Nitany Lions have suffered losing seasons four out of the last five years.
AP � Maybe it's just a coinci-
dence that the toughest stretch of
Joe Paterno's career arrives as the
hourglass is about to turn over on
his 78th year.
Or maybe not.
After just one losing season
in his first 34 at Penn State,
Paterno was guaranteed his
fourth in the last five following
a 21-10 beating Saturday at Ohio
State. During that run, the Nit-
tany Lions have lost not just their
teeth, but their aura. By now, it's
fair to ask whether they're likely
to regain either as long as Paterno
remains in charge.
Last season, skeptics doubted
his play-calling and clock-man-
agement skills, as well as whether
a coach who defined the term
"old school" could maintain
discipline on a squad filled
out by the "me-first" genera-
tion. Despite a 3-9 finish, Penn
State's administration gave him
a four-year contract extension,
hoping to soothe critics as well
as recruits by making it clear
that JoePa would be around for a
while. Already, the deal has had
the opposite effect.
Paterno keeps saying, "We're
not that far off but there is
nothing to substantiate that,
and no one who has the coach's
ear seems inclined to pass the
message along. It's increasingly
apparent that Penn State can't
score enough to be competitive in
the Big Ten, can't win on the road
and can no longer take anybody
in the conference for granted.
On top of that, Paterno hasn't
proven that he can compete with
the league's "Big Two Michigan
and Ohio State, for topflight
recruits on a regular basis and
even whether he cdn still develop
the talent he does have.
Playing at home 10 days ago,
Penn State managed just two
safeties in a 6-4 loss to Iowa, and
one of those was a gift. In the
Ohio State game, the Buckeyes
ran a total of six plays and netted
just 12 yards in the first quarter,
but led 14-0. What tied those
two latest losses together was
the performance of quarterback
Michael Robinson. He filled in
for injured starter Zack Mills and
closed out the Iowa game with
two interceptions and a fumble
on the final three plays, then
began the Ohio State game by
throwing two interceptions in
his first three pass attempts.
The point is not to blame
Robinson, who, after all, takes
most of his snaps in practice
as a wide receiver and running
back, was coming back from a
severe neck injury, and found
himself playing behind the
same porous offensive line that
couldn't protect Mills from a
concussion in the Iowa game.
The point is that Robinson prob-
ably shouldn't have been play-
ing QB in the first place, a fact
that Paterno is either too blind
or stubborn to acknowledge.
A few weeks ago, even as the
offensive problems continued
to mount - Penn State averaged
fewer than seven points per
game in five losses under Mills
- Paterno insisted that had Rob-
inson been playing, the Nittany
Lions would have beaten Wis-
consin, Minnesota and Purdue.
Asked what evidence that was
based on, the coach simply said, "I
have coached great football play-
ers for 55 years. If I tell you that
Michael Robinson is one of the
best football players I have ever
coached and one of the best in
the country, don't question me
And just last week, when
the available evidence on Rob-
inson suggested otherwise, and
the Nittany Lions' sorry record
practically begged for freshman
Anthony Morelli to get his shot,
Paterno insisted the youngster
wasn't adequately prepared to
face Ohio State.
When a writer asked, "Why
not?" Paterno replied, "He's not
adequately prepared
Asked whether Morelli knew
the plays, Paterno said again,
"He's not adequately prepared
The troubling part, beyond
Paterno's obstinacy, is that his
son, Jay, happens to be Penn
State's quarterbacks coach. The
Nittany Lions have games left
against Northwestern, Indiana
and Michigan State, and rather
than worry about winning those,
it would serve the program better
to find out as soon as possible
if Jay Paterno can make certain
that Morelli is "adequately pre-
pared" to face the future.
After all, it's one thing for
JoePa, who practically built the
program from scratch, won two
national championships and
personally donated $4 million,
to feel a sense of entitlement. It's
quite another when his kid starts
feeling the same way.

Philadelphia trio leads Purple over Gold
Cook drops game-high
19 points in victory
The Phllly trio of Mike Cook,
Charles Branson and Marvin Kilgoire
combined for 41 points as Purple
downed Gold 52-46 in the annual
PurpleGold scrimmage held this
past Saturday at Minges Coliseum.
Bronson was a perfect six-of-six
from the field and grabbed eight
rebounds while Kilgoire's defensive
intensity resulted in a game high five
steals. Corey Rouse also added eight
points in the winning effort and col-
lected a team-high 12 rebounds.
Freshman guard Tom Ham-
monds paced the Gold squad with
a team-high 14 points in the loss.
JaphetMc who showed consider-
able improvements from last season,
tossed in 11 while dishing out a game
high seven assists, junior college trans-
fer Mike Castro added nine points and
was the game's top rebounder with
13 boards and freshman Jonathan
Hart chipped in nine points as well.
"We used today as a checkpoint
to see where we're at offensively and
defensively said Head Coach Bill
"With Moussa out, things have
changed and now we've got to find
out what guys can play, and today
was a good step
ECU will begin their season this
Thursday as they take on Newberry
College in an exhibition to be held
in Minges Coliseum at 7 p.m. The
Pirates will play their final exhibi-
tion a week later against Barton
College at home and will then begin
their regular season at the BCA Invi-
tational as they take on Pepperdine.
