Bush wins second term
as Kerry phones to concede
Bush's win was secured Tuesday.
dent Bush won four more years in
the White House on Wednesday,
pocketing a quiet concession
from Democrat John Kerry that
closed out a loud and long cam-
paign fought over the war on
terror and the economy.
"Congratulations, Mr. Presi-
dent the Massachusetts senator
said simply in a call that lasted
less than five minutes and fol-
lowed Kerry's decision not to
contest Bush's lead in make-or-
break Ohio.
The victory gave Bush a new
term to pursue the war in Iraq
and a conservative, tax-cutting
agenda - and probably the chance
to name one or more justices to
an aging Supreme Court.
He also will preside alongside
expanded Republican majorities
in Congress. The GOP gained four
Senate seats and led for a fifth.
The party bolstered its major-
ity in the House by at least two.
His re-election secure, Bush

planned a mid-afternoon appear-
ance before supporters in Wash-
ington. By pre-arrangement,
Kerry was speaking first to a
hometown crowd in Boston to
conclude a campaign that came
achingly close to success.
Ohio's 20 electoral votes gave
Bush 274 in the Associated Press
count, four more than the 270
needed for victory. Kerry had 252
electoral votes, with Iowa (7) and
New Mexico (5) unsettled.
Bush was winning 51 percent
of the popular vote to 48 percent
for his rival. He led by more than
3 million ballots.
Officials in both camps
described the conversation
between two campaign warriors.
A Democratic source said
Bush called Kerry a worthy,
tough and honorable opponent.
Kerry told Bush the country was
too divided, the source said, and
Bush agreed.
"We really have to do some-
thing about it Kerry said.
White House spokesman
Scott McClellan said Bush told
Kerry, "1 think you were an admi-
rable, honorable opponent
Kerry placed his call after
weighing unattractive options
overnight. With Bush holding
fast to a six-figure lead in Ohio,
Kerry could give up or trigger a
struggle that would have stirred
memories of the bitter recount in
Florida that propelled Bush to the
White House in 2000.
Kerry's call was the last bit of
drama in a campaign full of it.
While Bush remains in the White
House, he returns to the Senate,
part of the shrunken Democratic
He acted, hours after White
House chief of staff Andy Card
declared Bush the winner and
White House aides said the presi-
dent was giving Kerry time to
consider his next step.
One senior Democrat familiar
with the discussions in Boston
said Kerry's running mate, North
Carolina Senator John Edwards,
was suggesting that he should
not concede.
The official said Edwards, a
trial lawyer, wanted to make sure
all options were explored and
that Democrats pursued them as
thoroughly as Republicans would
if the positions were reversed.
Advisers said the campaign
just wanted one last look for
uncounted ballots that might
close the 136,000-vote advantage
Bush held in Ohio.
An Associated Press survey of
the state's 88 counties found there
were about 150,000 uncounted
provisional ballots and an
unspecified number of absentee

ECU partners with
University in Kashmir
More countries to follow
ECU partnered with the
Azad Jammu and Kashmir Univer-
sity in Pakistan to expand its cur-
rent Virtual World Cultures course.
Rosina Chia, interim assis-
tant vice chancellor for global
academic initiatives, and Elmer
Poe, associate vice chancellor for
academic outreach, created the
course because they wanted to
decrease ECU students' misun-
derstanding toward other cul-
tures. Poe created the video com-
munication system that works
with regular Internet instead of
satellite, so it is inexpensive for
schools In underdeveloped areas
like Kashmir.
After the U.S. invaded Iraq,
Chia realized Americans received
a negative impression of the
Middle East from 30-second
sound bites on the news. She
said she wanted her students to
see how the Muslim community
really is without having to leave
the country.
"We can't go to Iraq said Chia.
"So then we thought we
would come up with a country
that is similar, a Muslim country
Kashmir is also similar to Iraq
because a lot of violence ensues
within its borders.
AJKU has five campuses in an
impoverished district of Kashmir
in the mountainous eastern side
of Pakistan. The student body is
made up of local residents.
Poe and Chia went to Kash-
mir in September to propose
a partnership and AJKU has
recently joined the class.
The class is held through
video conference. Each classroom
has a teacher and 14 students who
are paired with someone from
another country. Students from
other countries can only partici-
pate if they speak English.
Jim Smith, interim vice
chancellor for academic affairs,
attended the signing of the
partnership agreement Oct. 14
and has visited the class. He said
each country has its own screen
so the class looks like a miniature
United Nations.
Smith said the course is
unique from other classes because
students get to know each other
so well within one semester.
"Our students get to see them
and talk to them one on one
said Smith.
Students work for four weeks
with video link and must e-mail
their partner on a daily basis. At
the end of the four weeks, the
partners write a paper together
on some similarity or difference
they found in their cultures.
Chia said the class helps the
students from both countries see
the perspective of other cultures
and learn how to work with people
from different backgrounds. She
said it provides ECU students
with international experience
they would not have otherwise.
It also gives students from
Pakistan and other countries
a chance to learn more about
America. Most of the things they
know about America come from
movies and news. Through the
course, e-mails and chats with
their partners, ECU students get
a first hand glimpse into that cul-
ture. Students have commented
that they realized U.S. and Paki-
stan college students have a lot in
common and share many similar
values that they would not have
noticed otherwise.
Chia said she hopes to show
students that even if they dis-
agree with another country's
manner of doing things, there are
different ways which are accepted
in other places and should be
"My ultimate goal is for people
to know there are other ways of
doing things Chia said.
Chia and Poe had anticipated
some conflicts and worked with
their overseas partners to ease
this. There was concern that
female students' clothing at
ECU would upset the Pakistani
students. Chia told Pakistani
partners she did not have
the right to tell her students
what to wear and she wanted
Kashmir students to see how
Americans dress to better under-
stand the culture.
Chia said these problems
usually do not occur because
students show respect for the
other cultures.
Smith said this kind of inter-
action would send the right mes-
sage to students about other coun-
tries, and they would have more
respect for the differences. He
said part of the problem with the
world is absence of civil liberties.
Chia said the classes in the
past have been very successful
and have led students to want to
study abroad.
Only 1 percent of ECU stu-
dents study abroad. The low
number is due to lack of money,

ECU music library exhibit
receives historian awards
Students study sheet music, The digital library won two awards.
Exhibit celebrates the life
of musician Alice Person
ECU'S first music library
digital exhibit, founded after
obtaining a piece of music from
a diseased 19th century folk
musician, recently received two
awards from the North Carolina
Society of Historians.
The Paul Green Multimedia
Award is given for promoting
state history through artistic
and creative ways. The Barringer
Award honors the best of show
drawn from approximately 800
entries. Of all the entries, 32
were considered and two awards
were given.
An exhibit entitled Alice
Person: Good Medicine and Good
Music received both honors. The
head music librarian David Hursh
and special projects officer Diana
Williams arranged this exhibit.
"The Barringer Award was a
surprise said Hursh.
This exhibit could not have
been made possible if not for ECU
alumnus Harry Stubbs, the great,
great grandson of Alice Person.
According to Hursh, while
looking through his recently
deceased father's belongings,
Stubbs discovered sheet music
that was published by Person. He
brought this sheet music to the
music library at ECU, which even-
tually inspired the conceptualiza-
tion of the digital music exhibit.
Alice Person, known as Mrs.
Joe Person, was a talented profes-
sional musician, patent medicine
entrepreneur and women's rights
advocate. She was often ridiculed
and assailed by men who did not
want a woman doing such work.
However, Person often talked and
wrote of chivalry and those who
were knights of honor.
"I feel that we are one of these
knights and she would be proud of
what we have done said Williams.
Hursh said Person learned to
play the piano in her childhood
like most cultured young females
did at the time. She would hear
rare local tunes in addition to
popular music. She eventually
had those pieces adapted and
Person discovered a medical
remedy from her neighbor. Her
daughter had a disease called
Scrofula and Person was told by
the town doctor her daughter
might not survive. Person's neigh-
bor, hearing the bad news, told
Person of an old Native American
remedy her father had acquired.
Person gave her daughter the
medicine, and her daughter's
fever went away. Three weeks
later, her daughter had made a
full recovery. Person later pat-
ented and marketed this remedy.
Since the Person family was

The short supply of vaccinations
has the world on hold.
flu vaccine
affects ECU
Concerns rise over
upcoming flu season
With the flu vaccination
shortage escalating nationwide,
health officials are making extra
efforts to receive remaining vac-
cination shipments and are work-
ing to educate the public on
other means to avoid the flu.
Michelle Camarena, nurse
manager for the Student Health
Center, said the nationwide short-
age has directly affected their
supply. The center has had to
cancel its annually scheduled flu
vaccine clinics due to the shortage.
"We start ordering and prepar-
ing for the flu season in May and it
became obvious in the first week of
October when CHIRON suspended
their shipment that we weren't
going to get any said Camarena.
Camarena said they waited
a few days after they received
word they were not getting any
vaccines to inform the public
because they wanted to exhaust
all possible resources first, but
there simply were not any vac-
cines to be found.
Many people wonder
what caused this shortage of the
flu vaccine.
Dr. John Morrow, director of
the Pitt County Health Depart-
ment, said the shortage is due to
a problem at CHIRON.
"There were only two manu-
facturers of the flu vaccine this
year for the United States and
CHIRON had a problem with
their production said Marrow.
"They were expected to pro-
duce about 48 of the United States'
100 million dose supply we
just have only half the supply
that was expected for this year
Every year, people question the
effectiveness of the flu vaccine.
Camarena said it is difficult to
determine how this shortage could
affect the upcoming flu season.
see FLU page A2
Flu Vaccine
ECU usually administers 1300 to
1400 flu shots every year on campus,
for faculty, staff and students.
There are several ways you can
keep from catching the flu other
than the vaccine:
staying away from crowds of
people when there is an out-
eat and exercise properly so
your Immune system Is in good
�stay home from work or school
when III
wash hands with soap and
water or alcohol based cleansers
seek help from a physician
early on If you do become III
No clinics are scheduled at this
time, but for more questions,

fear of terrorism or disease and
a fear of going to a foreign land
where one does not know the
language of the people. Chla said
this program offers students the
experience without the danger.
Smith said ECU is the first
university he knows of that has
a Virtual World Cultures course.
He said ECU has become a model
for other schools.
Chia said the State Depart-
ment had ECU train 12 other
universities in the program and
has paid for the other schools
to go overseas and get their pro-
gram started. Thirteen American
universities are linked with 40
others around the world.
Smith said he thinks the proj-
ect will continue to grow over
the years. More students will
become involved and more pro-
fessors will be needed. Faculty
members will also receive extra
pay for learning how to teach a
video conference class.
There will be three sections
next semester covering nine
countries. The classes are two
days a week at 8 a.m. to cover the
time difference.
The course is currently work-
ing with six international part-
ners. These associates are China,
Russia, Switzerland, the Gambia
in Africa, Poland and Kashmir.
The program began with
only China and was so success-
ful that one Chinese student
ran up and kissed the screen to
say good-bye to his American
partner. Students from Kashmir
have already joined the class this
semester, and so far, the addition
has been successful except for a
power outage in Pakistan that cut
the class short.

Bush supporters celebrated once they realized the president
was winning and would serve them for another four years.
Bush declares victory
in elections again
dent Bush crept close to re-elec-
tion early Wednesday, leading
challenger John Kerry in a cam-
paign cliffhanger framed by war
in Iraq and joblessness at home.
Ohio held the key, stirring echoes
of Florida in 2000, but this time
Bush's advantage was substantial.
"We will fight for every vote
Kerry's running mate, Sen. John
Edwards, told supporters In
Boston, where he and the four-
term Massachusetts senator
waited out the late, long count.
For his part, Bush made no
overt claim of victory, and his
high command dispatched a 10-
person political and legal team
to Ohio in the event Kerry trig-
gered a Florida-like fight. Kerry
went to bed without signaling
his intentions.
But with Bush leading by
14S.OO0 votes and roughly
190,000 yet to be counted, one
top adviser said Kerry's chances

of winning Ohio and with it the
White Mouse were difficult at best.
The race was remarkably
similar to the 2000 campaign,
Bush winning all but one of the
states he carried four years ago,
while Kerry picked up where
Democrat Al Gore left off. For
Bush, that meant sweeping the
South and several western and
Midwestern state. For Kerry that
meant capturing California,
Pennsylvania, New York and
Illinois, a handful of West Coast
and Midwest states.
After winning Nevada in
the wee hours Wednesday, Bush
stood only 16 electoral votes shy
of the 270 required for a second
term. Kerry stalled at 252. Bush
made plans, later revisited, to
declare victory.
Ceding nothing, Kerry dis-
patched Edwards to tell support-
ers: "We've waited four years for
this victory. We can wait one

News Briefs
Republicans upend
two Incumbents In
Council of State races
RALEIGH, NC - Thanks to two narrow
upsets, Republicans expanded their
influence on the Council of State.
Les Merritt - who barely lost the 2000
election for state auditor to Ralph
Campbell Jr. - edged Campbell
In a rematch, while Republican
Steve Troxler ousted Democratic
Agriculture Commissioner Britt Cobb
in Tuesday's election.
Those wins - plus the re-election of
Labor Commissioner Cherie Berry
tripled the GOP's presence on the
Democrat-dominated council.
"It's been a while in the making, but I
think you can see that North Carolina
is becoming more and more of a
Republican state Troxler said. Taking
the seats in the Council of State just
proves that, and I'm very proud to be
a part of the team that's done this
Democratic incumbents had hoped
the races would represent little more
than a quiet renewal of their terms
rather than a serious shake-up.
Instead, they could lose up to three
seats if Republican Bill Fletcher
holds a narrow lead in the race for
superintendent of public instruction.
State Treasurer Richard Moore, who
won a second term, preferred to point
to the five Democratic incumbents
who reclaimed their seats.
"I think the voters are rewarding us
for making the right choices he
said. "This has not been the easiest
four years for North Carolina.
But the leaders of North Carolina
stayed focused on job creation and
education, and I think we're being
rewarded for that
In the auditor's race, Merritt had 1,570,079
votes, or 51 percent, and Campbell
had 1,516,848 votes, or 49 percent,
with 99 percent of precincts reporting
unofficial results early Wednesday.
Still, Merritt would not claim victory
just yet, campaign manager Frank
Williams said.
How the North Carolina
voter poll was conducted
North Carolina - The poll of North
Carolina voters was conducted for the
National Election Pool. The Associated
Press, ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox and NBC
by Edison Media Research and
Mitofsky International.
The survey included an exit poll of
Election Day voters and telephone
interviews with those who voted
early or absentee. The exit poll was
conducted Tuesday at a randomly
selected probability sample of 40
precincts around North Carolina.
A statewide telephone poll was
conducted during the past week
to interview absentee voters. The
absentee interviews were weighted
to represent 25 percent of the overall
sample, EdlsonMitofsky's estimate
of the absentee or early vote in the
state electorate.
In the exit poll, as people left the
voting booths, EdlsonMitofsky
interviewers asked them to fill out
a confidential paper questionnaire
prepared by NEP representatives. The
interviewers selected voters at a set
interval - such as every fifth person
- so that each participant had an
equal chance of being picked. Voters
interviewed by phone were asked the
same questions.
The exit poll results were
adjusted to reflect the different
probabilities of selecting a sample
precinct and people attending
each, as well as by the observed
sex, race and estimated age of
voters who refused to participate.
The telephone survey results also
weighted to geographic region,
household size and the number
of telephones in the household.
As with any survey, the results could
vary because of chance variations
in the sample. For this poll of 2,167
respondents - including 299
absentee voters interviewed by
phone - there was one chance
in 20 that sampling error
would cause the results to vary
by more than 3 percentage points
from the opinions of all North
Carolina voters.
Sampling error also depends
on how many exit poll sites
have voters with the characteristic
of interest. For example, black
or high-income voters may
be found clustered in only
a few sample precincts. Sampling
error may be up to three times
larger for clustered characteristics.
Polls are subject to other
sources of error, such as from
question wording or order.
Lawyer Joins rare
few with high salaries
DALLAS - Running Into an Army
recruiter at a restaurant changed the
life of lawyer Michael Brown - really.
Brown, 26, leaves Dallas on Thursday
for Fort Benning, Ga cutting his
annual income from $120,000 to
His impetus was a conversation
this summer with Staff Sgt. Jerome
"I had been thinking about doing It
Brown said. "It's on your heart and
your thinking about doing it and
there he Is"
They talked in the Subway shop and
the next day Huntley came to Brown's
apartment to describe life in an Army
special operations unit, such as the
Rangers or Green Berets.
Huntley said Brown's enthusiasm
eliminated any doubts about someone
giving up a career as a lawyer.
"He was just saying he wanted
something more exciting In his life
Huntley said.
After 16 weeks of training at Fort
Benning, Brown will go to Fort
Campbell In Kentucky. He hopes to
then join a special operations unit.
A recruit such as Brown is "relatively
unusual" - not only because of his
profession but also because of
his income and age, said Douglas
Smith, spokesman for the U.S. Army
Recruiting Command at Fort Knox in
About 98.5 percent of Army officers
have a bachelor's degree, and 40
percent of those have a master's or
a doctorate, according to the Army.
But only about 5 percent of enlistees
have a four-year college degree or
Smith said the average recruit's age
Is 21, and according to 2002 data,
only 7 percent of enlistees come
from households with incomes of
$100,000 to $150,0000.
Chicago museum
remembers victims of Cambodia
CHICAGO - For years, Leon Lim didn't
want to talk about what he saw in the
Killing Relds of Cambodia. He wanted
to focus on his new life in America, not
the torture endured under the Khmer
Rouge and the loved ones lost.
Now, Urn and fellow survivors have a
forum for helping heal their emotional
scars, for preserving their past, for
educating others of the atrocities that
can be perpetrated by an unbridled
communist regime.
That place is Chicago's new
Cambodian American Heritage
Museum and Killing Fields Memorial,
which the project's organizers say
is the only public memorial in the
United States that honors victims of
the Khmer Rouge.
"About 2 million people died - and
it's just too much said Lim, a former
refugee camp medic.
Dary Mien's starkest memory is being
6 years old and walking through rice
fields littered with bodies.
"The Cambodian community has
just been so silent about Its pain.
But when it comes to this museum,
that reminds them of their sense
of culture, identity and perhaps
there's a way for us to connect
better with each other said Mien,
associate director of the Cambodian
Association of Illinois.
The association developed
the museum and memorial,
which opened last month, as a
healing mechanism.
The museum is filled with items
donated by survivors of the Killing
Fields - everything from shackles
used by the Khmer Rouge to Lim's
medical equipment to decades-old
books of Buddhist teachings made
with pressed palm leaves.
Afghan kidnappers
'flexible' on demands
KABUL, Afghanistan - A Taliban
splinter group threatening to kill
three foreign U.N. hostages said
Tuesday there was "some flexibility"
about their demands, which include
the world body's withdrawal
from Afghanistan.
Government officials were
optimistic the Iraq-style abduction
could end with the foreigners'
release but said they had no contact
with the kidnappers one day before a
deadline on the hostages' fate.
Jaish-al Muslimeen, or Army of
Muslims, claimed it abducted Annetta
Flanigan of Northern Ireland, Filipino
diplomat Angelito Nayan and Shqipe
Hablbi of Kosovo in the Afghan capital
Thursday. All three hostages were in
the country to help manage its Oct.
9 presidential election, apparently
won by U.Sbacked interim leader
Hamid Karzai.
Jaish-al Muslimeen released a
videotape Sunday showing the
frightened captives pleading for their
freedom.Thegroupsuggested it would
start killing the captives Wednesday
if its demands were not met.
Besides demanding a U.N.
withdrawal from Afghanistan, Jaish-al
Muslimeen also sought the
pullout of British troops and the
release of al-Qaida and Taliban
prisoners from U.S. custody In
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Ishaq Manzoor, a purported group
leader, told The Associated Press that
talks with authorities were underway
via intermediaries.
United Arab Emirates
president dies at age 86
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - The
president of the United Arab Emirates,
who oversaw the transformation of
a cluster of tiny desert Persian Gulf
sheikdoms into a leading oil and
business hub with skyscrapers and
sprawling shopping malls, has died.
He was 86.
Sheik Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan,
one of the richest rulers in the world
according to Forbes magazine,
forged close ties with the United
States and the West during his rule of
the country, which is the world's ninth
largest oil producer.
Sheik Zayed was expected to be
succeeded by his eldest son, Sheik
Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The
leaders of the seven emirates that
make up the country will appoint the
new president within 30 days.
In the meantime, the prime minister
- Sheik Maktoum bin Rashid Al
Maktoum, a close relative of Sheik
Zayed - will serve as acting president
During the president's illness, Sheik
Maktoum has been the public face
of the Emirates.
First Rives Chair
position named
Art professor in Hall of Fame
Bauer plans to make
additional programs
Margaret Donovan Bauer
has been chosen by a per-
sonnel committee to hold
the first Rives Chair in the
department of English.
An anonymous endowment,
given by a former ECU student
in honor of retired ECU profes-
sor Ralph Hardee Rives, created
the position.
Bauer said she will put the
endowment of $152,000 to good
use during her next five years in
the renewable position.
"Hopefully (the endowment!
will allow me to start pursuing
the next project said Bauer.
"I've got a couple of things
in mind
Bauer is interested in holding
symposiums at ECU featuring
writers and promoting programs
at ECU.
"If you bring writers
in, it makes it real. I'm
always surprised that my
students don't know in the
whole country North Carolina
probably produces more writ-
ers than any other state Bauer
Southern literature, to
which North Carolina con-
tributes greatly, encompasses
all of the states of the former
confederacy as well as the
volunteer states such as Tennes-
see and Kentucky.
Bauer said she has plans to
improve the annual ECU pub-
lication entitled North Carolina
Literary Review of which she is
the editor.
"One of the things I want to
work on is marketing the North
Carolina Literary Review. This will
allow funds to maybe do some
of that Bauer said.
"NCLR is a big deal. It helped
put ECU on the map. When
people see it they love it, but they
have to see it
While the southern
literature courses at ECU will not
change, Bauer supports southern
literature through them by trying
to focus on southern writers in
her women's literature class.
"I use that angle as much as I
can Bauer said.
As the first person at the Uni-
versity of Tennessee to do a Ph.D.
exam In southern literature,
Bauer had to petition the depart-
ment to allow her to do it. It is
fitting that her enthusiasm about
North Carolina and southern
literature echoes that of Ralph
Hardee Rives. The anonymous
donor focused on the effect that
Rives' southern traits had on her
and her career choices.
"1 think because Ralph Hardee
Rives is such a southerner, he's
very involved in the Tennessee
Williams festival. He's such a
supporter of southern history
and culture that that's how they
decided, whoever that donor is
Bauer said.
"He regaled us with stories
when I met him, and storytelling
is probably 90 percent of south-
ern literature
Feeling honored to live in
North Carolina, which Bauer
calls home, she is determined to
share her feelings of inspiration
with all of her students as well.
"There is something about
this state, I don't know why. It
is right around the corner. The
stuff of literature is right outside
Bauer said.
She said the mountains,
beach and small towns all inspire
writing, and she is grateful that
her colleagues recognized her
scholarship in this area.

Robert Ebendorf, Ph.D pro-
fessor at the school of art, has
been greatly awarded for 40 years
of outstanding artwork by being
invited to join the National Met-
alsmiths Hall of Fame.
He was among hundreds of
other candidates nominated for this
chance. The committee's choice to
choose him was based on his cre-
ative leadership, his gift as an educa-
tor and the awards he had received
and his prominence in his field.
Ebendorf qualified for this
position because he has earned
many attributes throughout his
40 year metalsmithing career.
Ebendorf first began working
with art during his senior year
of high school, when he entered
into an arts and crafts course. His
teacher offered him encourage-
ment to expand his creativity,
and nurture his capabilities as an
artist. It was this special teacher
who gave Ebendorf the influence
to decide to attend art school at
the University of Kansas.
Although Ebendorf had
been offered football and wres-
tling scholarships for several
schools, such as the University of
Nebraska, the Air Force Academy
in Colorado Springs, and even
the University of Oklahoma, he
turned them all down in order to
pursue a career in the arts.
At the University of Kansas,
Ebendorf earned his bachelor's
and master's degrees of fine arts.
He was then offered a Fulbright
Scholarship to study at the State
School for Applied Arts and
Crafts in Norway. He excelled
in Norway and in 1966 he was
awarded the Tiffany Grant to
become a goldsmith for the
Norway Silver Design.
Ebendorf has been to many
places around the globe. Since
he graduated from the University
of Kansas and worked in Norway
he taught at Stetson University in
Florida, the University of Geor-
gia, the Seoul National University
School of Art in Korea, the State
University of New York at New
Paltz and ECU.
While he visited ECU a few
years ago, he was introduced to
the Carol Grotnes Belk Distin-
guished Professorship. Ebendorf
applied for this professorship,
which lasts five to 10 years and
allows him to teach metals and
design at ECU.
I lis responsibilities as a Belk Pro-
fessor are guest lecturing and over-
seeing the guest artist program at
ECU. He also serves on the National
Endowment for the Arts panel.

season so we anticipated
more interest this year. It
could be delayed and hit
us in January or it may not be as
bad as people think
Morrow said people need to
be cautious this flu season and
allow those in immediate need
to get a flu shot.
"For healthy young people
and adults, I would ask that they
hold off getting vaccinated until
we are comfortable that the
elderly and infirmed people are
protected first Morrow said.
Morrow said people can do
other things to prevent getting
the flu besides getting vaccinated
such as washing hands and being
sure to cover mouths when
coughing and sneezing.
Morrow said that every year the
flu has the ability tochange; therefore,
they adjust the vaccine accordingly.
"We do expect the strain of flu
to be the Fujian strain that also
circulated last year. The vaccine
was changed this year to cover
After a very competitive com-
petition for the professorship,
Ebendorf won hands-down for
his artistic pieces, which are cher-
ished around the world, his great
personality, and his dedication to
what he loves to do.
The type of art he enjoys
creating most is mixed media,
which is art that is made from all
sorts of useful materials found in
the oddest places. This includes
things he gathers from the street,
the beach and friends' houses.
He is able to use his skills and
creativity to transform trash he
gathers into a work of art.
Ebendorf witnessed the
power of his simple work when
an incredulous event happened
with his career.
"The most memorable event
of my career is when I had just
finished a $90,000 necklace
adorned with diamonds and gold
and I was flying to Italy to give
it to the wealthy family who pur-
chased the piece said Ebendorf.
"As I was going to Italy, I
found out that the VNA museum
in London wanted to put a neck-
lace I made from Styrofoam,
paint, foil and Japanese paper
from the streets of New York, into
their permanent exhibit. I was
amazed at the concept that the
museum preferred the piece that
is only about $5 in value, opposed
to a necklace worth $90,000
Ebendorf has become very
successful in the artistic world,
which has earned him the
privilege of being inducted
into the National Metalsmiths
Hall of Fame.

where one does not know the
language of the people. Chia said
this program offers students the
experience without the danger.
Smith said ECU is the first
university he knows of that has
a Virtual World Cultures course.
I le said ECU has become a model
for other schools.
Chia said the State Depart-
ment had ECU train 12 other
universities in the program and
has paid for the other schools
to go overseas and get their pro-
gram started. Thirteen American
universities are linked with 40
others around the world.
Smith said he thinks the proj-
ect will continue to grow over
the years. More students will
become involved and more pro-
fessors will be needed. Faculty
members will also receive extra
pay for learning how to teach a
video conference class.
There will be three sections
next semester covering nine
countries. The classes are two
days a week at 8 a.m. to cover the
time difference.
The course is currently work-
ing with six international part-
ners. These associates are China,
Russia, Switzerland, the Gambia
in Africa, Poland and Kashmir.
The program began with
only China and was so success-
ful that one Chinese student
ran up and kissed the screen to
say good-bye to his American
partner. Students from Kashmir
have already joined the class this
semester, and so far, the addition
has been successful except for a
power outage in Pakistan that cut
the class short.

Bush supporters celebrated once they realized the president
was winning and would serve them for another four years.
Bush declares victory
in elections again
dent Bush crept close to re-elec-
tion early Wednesday, leading
challenger John Kerry in a cam-
paign cliff hanger framed by war
in Iraq and joblessness at home.
Ohio held the key, stirring echoes
of Florida in 2000, but this time
Bush's advantage was substantial.
"We will fight for every vote
Kerry's running mate, Sen. John
Edwards, told supporters in
Boston, where he and the four-
term Massachusetts senator
waited out the late, long count.
For his part, Bush made no
overt claim of victory, and his
high command dispatched a 10-
person political and legal team
to Ohio in the event Kerry trig-
gered a Florida-like fight. Kerry
went to bed without signaling
his intentions.
But with Bush leading by
145,000 votes and roughly
190,000 yet to be counted, one
top adviser said Kerry's chances

of winning Ohio and with it the
White I louse were difficult at best.
The race was remarkably
similar to the 2000 campaign,
Bush winning all but one of the
states he carried four years ago,
while Kerry picked up where
Democrat Al Gore left off. For
Bush, that meant sweeping the
South and several western and
Midwestern state. For Kerry that
meant capturing California,
Pennsylvania, New York and
Illinois, a handful of West Coast
and Midwest states.
After vinning Nevada in
the wee hours Wednesday, Bush
stood only 16 electoral votes shy
of the 270 required for a second
term. Kerry stalled at 252. Bush
made plans, later revisited, to
declare victory.
Ceding nothing, Kerry dis-
patched Edwards to tell support-
ers: "We've waited four years for
this victory. We can wait one

Democrats fall short yet again
Bush retains his position
Alright, alright, so he won. Bush and
his political team have succeeded in once
again convincing a majority of Ameri-
cans that he is the right man to lead their
nation. In the national elections Tuesday,
President George W. Bush was re-elected to
the highest office in the land, sweeping the
southeast and central plains and ensuring
that the United States of America can look
forward to four more years of international
humiliation and domestic oppression.
For all you homosexuals out there, sorry,
but it looks like you might be fresh out of
luck. All you women who would like very
much to secure your right to choose and
control your own reproductive future,
sorry, but it looks like we will continue to
be bludgeoned by the president's Chris-
tian fundamentalism and faith-based
sex education programs for another four
years. I will grant the president this; he is
a fantastic politician. And by exploiting
that political prowess, by re-convinc-
ing the American electorate that he is a
good 'ol Texas boy (which, by the way, he
most certainly is not) and understands
the concerns of the working class in this
country, he has bamboozled us again. Well,
not me, I have been on to him since the
beginning, but a great deal of other Ameri-
cans, millions in fact, have had the wool
pulled over their eyes for a second time.
And we were so hopeful. The last
week or so has seen a palpable shift in
the national feeling about who would
win the election. It really felt like it was
breaking for Kerry, that maybe, just
maybe, there would be some light at the
end of the long, dark tunnel of Repub-
lican national dominance. But alas, in
the end, the coveted youth vote failed
to materialize and George W. Bush, the
man who has ridden the coattails of
his famous father and grandfather his
entire life, has done so once again. So
what, exactly, can we expect from the
next four years?
It seems clear the president is disin-
clined to change his policies toward the
situation in Iraq, so we can expect that
quagmire of death and military stale-
mate to continue indefinitely. Osama
Bin Laden (The man about whom Presi-
dent Bush so famously quipped, "I don't
really think about him that much") has
re-emerged in a new videotape warning
the U.S. and her allies about future
attacks. I still find it extremely difficult
to believe the most sophisticated and
organized military juggernaut in the
history of the world is unable to locate
and assassinate one abnormally tall
Arab man. How can this be? The U.S
spends $250 billion a year on defense.
We have the C.I.A the Navy Seals and
Army Delta. Osama Bin Laden travels
by S.U.V. motorcade and on donkey
back, generally with a small detail of
lightly armed bodyguards. Granted,
their devotion to the man and religious
fanaticism renders them a much more
formidable enemy, but honestly! We
will continue to see the White House,
highly distrustful of the Press since the
beginning of Bush's career, stonewall
the American people and selectively
offer the truth in tiny morsels of reality.
Karl Marx observed that religion is
"the opiate of the masses" and never
has this concept been more prevalent in
American history than since the rise of
the Bush regime. Bush makes national
security decisions based on his Christian
faith. If he so chooses to make personal
decisions about his life and his family's
life based on that criterion, more power to
him. But using that model to render mon-
umental decisions which affect the lives
of millions of Americans is completely
improper. He opposes teaching high
school students about reproductive health
and only funds sex education which
promotes abstinence. Good idea, Mr.
President. Let's close our eyes and hope
the problem magically disappears. God
forbid we supply effective birth control to
young people with their hormones raging,
who will be sexually active anyway, and
maybe avoid some of the problems of
teen pregnancy and sexual irresponsibil-
ity which have so plagued our society.
The image of America will continue to
decline around the world. I often hear
people say things like, "Who cares what
the rest of the world thinks" and "I never
want to leave the U.S anyway Well,
that's fine. But I, and a great deal of other
Americans, would. If I choose to travel
outside this country (there is, by the way,
existence outside of the United States), it
would be great to be able to tell people I
am American without fear of violence or
hatred or both. I understand that many
Americans are extremely ethnocentric
and nationalistic and believe that all
other nations represent some level of
irrelevance. I am not one of those people.
I wish to return to the days when people
admired the United States, strived to emu-
late our democracy, and did not resent
us for our arrogance and unilateralism.
George W. Bush is not what this
country needs, but I guess it is a purely
academic issue now. We have him, for
four more years, and very soon I think the
lack of wisdom in our collective decision
for president will become perfectly clear.
Now we must strive - strive for education,
strive for peace, strive for change. The
president is in control of the most politi-
cally and ideologically divided American
electorate in our history, with the possible
exception of 1861 and the Civil War.
Let's hope he sees the error of his ways
and reconsiders some of his damaging
policies. But you know, something tells
me that is little more than a pipe dream.
Welcome to the second chapter of
this ugly little epic. Perhaps it will prove
more entertaining than the first.
In My Opinion
Miss America just needs a makeover
(KRT)� So, ABC is dropping the
Miss America Pageant but signing on
for another nine episodes of "Des-
perate Housewives"? Where is the
logic in that? A girl spends 10 years
learning how to play the ukulele and
ABC couldn't care less. But have her
tear off her clothes, French-kiss a
sweaty gardener and moan off camera
and somehow that is supposed to
be more interesting to American
Whatever happened to our long-
standing love affair with the flaming
baton? Does no one give a darn any-
more about roller ballet? Do ABC execs
think it's easy to juggle fruit while
singing Neil Sedaka tunes?
It is not!
Or at least, I always assumed it
wasn't, and gave those girls extra points
on my scorecard.
This was an annual rite in my
home, of course, and in everyone else's
home, too, for many years. In 1961, for
instance, 75 percent of all American
TVs were tuned to the pageant. (And 76
percent of all little girls sat watching in
sashes made of toilet paper.)
Last year, however, only 9.8 mil-
lion people watched - one for every
reference to the ever-so-serious schol-
arship aspect of the contest. (Bathing
suit competition? What bathing suit
competition? Oh, that bathing suit
Still, it seems pretty clear that rather
than dropping the show, ABC could
have had a red-hot hit on its hands
with just a little tweaking. Why, oh
why, didn't they try:
TRADING FACES: Pairs of con-
testants are given lipstick, rouge, eye
shadow, glue, fake hair and Magic Mark-
ers. Time to trade makeovers!
REAR FACTOR: Combining speed
and surprise, contestants attempt to
take a bite out of one another's fan-
nies. Staff surgeons from "The Swan"
stand by.
SURVIVE HER: Girls are dropped
onto a desert island ruled by a bitter
has-been (Kathie Lee Gifford). Which
of Cody's 50 potential baby-sitters will
please the lady of the land - and which
will be sent to the sweatshop?
One handsome (and, unfortunately,
married) professor presides over an
honors seminar filled with female
students from every state. Each week,
these coeds write papers and contribute
thoughtful insights to class discussion
while dressed in pushup bras and high
heels. Whose grade will be the first to
GET ME OUT OF HERE! Contestants

talking about world peace, these brave

Tony McKee: Here's three rea-c

a thousand troops are gone, three
million jobs are gone and, to use
your logic, Bush is an idiot. I have
no problem voting against Bush
rather than for Kerry.
I am that guy that wears party
and concert shirts, and I will
continue to wear them because
I was there, and you clearly were
not, or you would being wearing
the same shirt.
Thank God the election is
over I'm tired of getting phone,
calls from Laura Bush and every
other Republican representative.
The funny thing is, I'm Demo-
crat! What's with that?
If you don't remember what-
your inside voice is supposed to
be, it is one decibal above a whis
per. Please start using it instead
of yelling to the person standing
right next to you.
What is with people, espe-
cially strangers, asking who you
voted for? It really isn't any of
their business and I shouldn't
have to explain myself or my
beliefs to people I don't even
know. Besides, I've already voted
and it isn't like they are going
to change the outcome now
by convincing me to support a
different candidate.
I'm glad the political ads are
finally coming to an end. Now
I can watch television without
being bombarded with images of
Richard Burr in a crown or people
walking around like chickens.
Why do people complain
about other people gossiping?
I mean really, you gossip, don't .
deny it. Wake up, you more than
likely talk about the people that
talk about you.
What's the deal with down-
town being so trashy? I am so
annoyed. I just want to go to a bar
without feeling like I am going to
get shot, raped or mugged. Is that
too much to ask?
In response to the rant about
getting our own political views,
I want to say a few things. Your
liberal opinion probably stems
from your parents' "tree-hug-
ging, hippie" beliefs. I have my
own opinion, and it just happens
to be the right one! Thanks for
No white under the belt after
Labor Day, please!
I don't understand why non-
Greeks have to put down Greek
Life. It seems like everyone hates
us because they may think that
we are all are a certain way. I
love Greek Life. I've met some
awesome people and-1 can't stand
how we get looked down upon by
faculty and students who know
nothing about it.
Never let a TV be the only
reason you stay in the dorm.

Kerry sends Edwards
with message of hope
BOSTON (AP) � Unwil
ing to concede defeat, John
Kerry dispatched smooth-talking
running mate John Edwards
to deliver his trademark mes-
sage of hope to supporters
and a divided nation waiting
for a president.
Edwards told supporters who
stuck it out through rain and
defeat in key states that they
would not give up based on vote
forecasts and a Bush advantage in
the disputed state of Ohio.
"John Kerry and I made a
promise to the American people
that in this election, every vote
would count and every vote
would be counted Edwards
said. "Tonight, we are keeping
our word and we will fight fc
every vote. You deserve no less
While Edwards spoke to
the nation and the crowd at
Boston's Copley Square, Kerry
was at his townhome huddled
with advisers including fellow
Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy
and campaign manager Mary
Beth Cahill.
Campaign officials were ini-
tially hopeful about Kerry's
prospects earlier on Election Day,
but the mood turned somber as
President Bush took the lead in
electoral votes.
Kerry asked for votes into
the evening then took a catnap
as the polls closed across the
country, according to adviser Joe
Lockhart. He woke for a dinner
of vegetable soup with his wife
as the results came in.
"America's a strong country
and I think we can be stronger,
but that's up to the American
people what road we go Kerry
said after casting his vote at the
Massachusetts Statehouse.
The Bush campaign said his
refusal to concede Ohio was
delusional. "The people of Ohio
have spoken and John Kerry has
lost said Bush-Cheney spokes-
man Steve Schmidt.
For nearly two years, Kerry
was surrounded by supporters
who often said they would vote
for anybody but Bush. The sena-
tor used that idea while trying to
build support for his own posi-
tions and himself personally.
He focused on lost Jobs, on
rising heath care costs, under-
funded schools and record high
gas prices, blaming Bush and
saying he would do better.
Kerry also hit hard at the
president's handling of national
security, chipping away at Bush's
greatest strength. He called the
president an incompetent com-
mander in chief who misled the
country into war.
Kerry appeared to connect
with voters most on domestic
concerns, with those who sup-
ported him saying that the
economy and jobs were their top
issues, followed by Iraq. Voters
who said they were worried about
health care costs or job losses in
their communities overwhelm-
ingly supported Kerry over Bush.
He also was the clear favorite
of black voters and led among
Hispanics and women, accord-
ing to exit polls conducted for
The Associated Press by Edison
Media Research and Mitofsky
Kerry's comeback to con-
tender status came after a brutal
summer campaign in which
Bush spent tens of millions of
dollars on advertising that por-
trayed Kerry as a liberal flip-flop-
per who would raise taxes and
couldn't be trusted to run the
military. The anti-Kerry group
Swift Boat Veterans for Truth
piled on, accusing him of lying
about his decorated Vietnam
battle record.

votes still to be counted.
Ohio aside, New Mexico
and Iowa remained too close
to call in a race for the White
House framed by a worldwide
war against terror and economic
worries at home.
But those two states were for
the record - Ohio alone had the
electoral votes to swing the elec-
tion tothe man in the White House
or his Democratic challenger.
Bush remained at the White
House, a GOP legal and political
team dispatched overnight toOhio
in case Kerry made a fight of it.
Republicans already were
celebrating election gains in
Congress. They picked up at
least three seats in the Senate,
and a fourth was within their
grasp, in Alaska. And they drove
Democratic leader Tom Daschle
from office.
That will be the state of
play on Capitol Hill for the
next two years, with the
chance of a Supreme Court
nomination fight looming
along with legislative battles.
Republicans reinforced
their majority in the House
as well.
Glitches galore cropped up in
overwhelmed polling places as
Americans voted in high num-
bers, fired up by unprecedented
registration drives, the excru-
ciatingly close contest and the
sense that these were unusually
consequential times.
"The mood of the voter in
this election is different than
any election I've ever seen said
Sangamon County, 111 clerk
Joseph Aiello.
"There's more passion. They
seem to be very emotional.
They're asking lots of questions,
double checking things
The country exposed its
rifts on matters of great import
in Tuesday's voting. Exit polls
found the electorate split down
the middle or very close to it on
whether the nation is moving in
the right direction, on what to do
in Iraq, on whom they trust with
their security.
The electoral map Wednes-
day looked much like it did
before. The question mark had
moved and little else.
Bush built a solid foundation
by hanging on to almost all the
battleground states he got last
time. Facing the cruel arithmetic
of attrition, Kerry needed to do
more than go one state better
than Al Gore four years ago.
Florida fell to Bush again,
close but no argument about it.
Bush's relentless effort to
wrest Pennsylvania from the
Democratic column fell short.
He had visited the state 44
times, more than any other.
Kerry picked up New Hamp-
shire in perhaps the election's
only turnover.

Healthy Hints:
Sometimes when students feel
that they have some kind of skin
ailment, such as a rash, or an
upset stomach and vomiting, they
do not consider the possibility of a
developed food or environmental
allergy. What can be mistaken for
a rash or an upset stomach could
be hives or a gastrointestinal
allergic reaction. Some of the most
common food and environmental
allergies are:
-MilkDairy (Lactose Intolerance)
-Eggs and any product containing
-Peanuts and nut products
-Fish and Shellfish
-DustPet Dander
-Smoke, as in from cigarettes
-Chemicals, commonly from
cleaning products
Allergy tests are available at the
Student Health Center or your

Lance's cause on course �
Live Strong wrist bands can be found on both students and faculty. Money from these wrist bands go to support Lance Armstrong's cause.
Cyclist embraces new
challenge, new cause
His story is too fitting even for
Hollywood. Disney could not write
a better feel-good story than that of
Lance Armstrong. After an improb-
able survival of cancer, Lance
Armstrong exceeded most people's
expectations by even trying to
race again. Lance Armstrong,
however, did more than just race.
Lance Armstrong is the only
man in the history of the Tour
de France to have won the event
six years in a row. He is only the
second American to win the
event after Greg LeMond in 1991.
Lance Armstrong's dominance in
cycling's premier event has invoked
renaming it the Tour de Lance.
In 1996, however, doctors diag-
nosed him with testicular cancer.
At the age of 25 and already
with a successful cycling career,
1996 was according to Lance,
"the best year of my profession
up to that point
In fact, Lance entered the
1996 cycling season ranked as the
number one cyclist in the world.
Early warning signs of cancer
existed, such as pain in the abdo-
men and lower back regions,
which Lance attributed to his
grueling training schedule. At his
diagnosis, the cancer had spread
to his lungs and brain. During
treatment, Lance underwent four
rounds of chemotherapy and
received breakthrough treatment
to rid his body of cancerous cells
while keeping his lung capacity
in tact. Tumors were removed
from both his lungs and brain.
Lance was given less than a 50
percent chance of survival.
"This international, non-
profit foundation was estab-
lished initially to benefit cancer
research and promote urologic
cancer awareness and the impor-
tance of early detection. Its focus
now is on being the world leader
in the concept of 'Cancer Survi-
vorship' - helping people manage
and survive cancer
"The Lance Armstrong Foun-
dation believes that in your
battle with cancer, knowledge is
power and attitude is everything.
Founded in 1997 by cancer survi-
vor and cycling champion Lance
Armstrong, the LAF provides the
practical information and tools
people living with cancer need to
live strong. We serve our mission
through four core program areas
These four areas include
education, advocacy, public
health and resource.
"Live strong" is the motto
that Lance Armstrong and
his founded organization, the
Lance Armstrong Foundation is
premised upon. The LAF is not
only a resource for information,
but also a continual project to
promote survival and continued
healthy living of cancer survi-
vors. The yellow "Live Strong"
wristbands have become popular
throughout the country, they
have become a fashion state-
Freshman music major Megan
Whitaker wears her bracelet not
just as a fashion statement, "I
think it's great that for just one
dollar, you can support such a
great cause
In a letter to his fans and
fellow cancer survivors, Lance
writes, "Cancer is a funny
illness that comes in all shapes
and sizes, sometimes better or
worse. Sometimes a short fight,
sometimes a long fight. The key
word is fight. I must encourage
you to always keep the faith. The
faith in your doctors, the faith in
the medicine, the faith in your
family and most importantly the
faith in yourself. This, my friend,
is absolutely the best thing you
can do for yourself. Your strength
gives so many others hope and
inspiration, including myself. I
returned to professional cycling
because of people like you, cancer
patients who want to live forever
and fight like crazy. Thank you

Affects more individuals
than we know
The exact cause of breast
cancer remains unknown,
although scientists have identi-
fied a number of risk factors
that Increase a woman's chance
of getting this disease. Certain
factors such as age are beyond
our control, whereas others like
excessive drinking and smoking
can be modified. Estimates of
6 percent of'women who get
breast cancer have a first degree
relative (mother, daughter or
sister) who have this disease.
Surprisingly 70 percent of breast
cancer patients don't have any
of these basic risk factors. That
fact is extremely important for
women to know for two reasons.
First, women who have these fac-
tors may experience an excessive
amount of worry. Second, women
who do not have any of the basic
factors may create a false sense
of security. It may lead a woman
to believe that she has little or
no chance of becoming a breast
cancer victim, which is untrue.
It's difficult to know what's
"right" or "wrong" for your body,
unless you have a basic idea of
what is normal for you. Self breast
exams are a great way to familiar-
ize yourself with your own body.
Not sure what to look for? Breast
tissue is made of glands and other
tissues that feel lumpy. (Keep in
mind that 80 percent of lumps
that are found in breast tissue
are not cancerous.) Lumpiness
varies per person, so these are
some visual physical changes that
will give you plenty of reason to
see a specialist. Any discoloration
of the breast, discharge from the
nipple, a change in the size and
shape of the breast or a nipple
that suddenly inverts. If you
have any of these symptoms you
should see a doctor immediately.
To be best treated, the signs
should be detected at an early
stage. There are several types of
Between the ages of 35 and 40,
most women have their f irst mam-
mography. A mammography is
an x-ray of breast tissue. Mammo-
grams can detect lumps as small
as a half a centimeter. Ultrasound
is also a new technology that is
available for lump detection.

What students think about
cancer causes, prevention
Do you know what to
look out for?
Undoubtedly every student
at ECU has been affected in
some shape, fashion or form by
cancer, whether it is a family
member, a friend or even them-
selves. Many students however
are unaware of specifics when it
comes to cancer as well as prac-
ticing preventative measures.
Cancer is defined as a group
of diseased cells that grow out
of control sometimes forming
masses or tumors that destroy
normal tissue and normal cells.
Cancer develops in three stages,
which are initiation, promotion
and progression.
Cancer is caused by carcino-
gens, which contribute to the
first two stages of cancer. Cancer
is always flowing around in the
body but the immune system
is usually sufficient enough to
fight these cells off. Stem cell
research has been used to aid
patients suffering from cancer.
A stem cell is a cell from which
other cell types can develop.
Once cancer has developed
bone marrow stem cells are
often used to help patients after
they have been exposed to high
radiation from chemotherapy.
"I feel that the government
should allocate funding to
develop more stem cell research.
My cousin died from cancer and
I feel stem cell research could
have delayed or even helped to
fight the cancer in her body
said Ryan Chapman, sophomore
accounting major.
At this point in time however,
scientists say they are hindered
by federal rules governing the use
of embryonic stem cells because
access to stem cell lines approved
for research is limited according to
the National Institutes of Health.
Skin cancer is another con-
cern of ECU students. The sun's
ultraviolet radiation can cause eye
cancers as well as skin cancers. To
prevent some of these, students
should always wear sunscreen.
The Skin Cancer Foundation
has advocated for UV-protective
automobile windows and UV-
residential windows.
"I take cancer very seriously,
particularly because skin cancer
runs in' my family. My grand-
father has had skin cancer for
years and has struggled with it.
Of course my family tries to take
preventative measures such as
wearing sunscreen and avoiding
tanning and tanning beds.
Precautions such as these are
often overlooked but extremely
important for health said
Samantha Hollen, freshman
nursing major.
Smoking is one of the biggest,
if not the number one factor that
leads to cancer. Tobacco use is the
single most preventable cause of
death in the United States accord-
ing to the National Institutes of
Cancer. Lung cancer is the lead-
ing cause of cancer death in both
men and women.
"My grandfather died from
lung cancer. He was a heavy
smoker. I try my best to avoid
smoke filled environments and I
don't smoke. And to avoid other
cancers I eat right and I don't
stress about things said Tieren
Evans, junior family and com-
munity services major.
The health risk caused by
smoking doesn't only affect the
smokers but the people around
them as well. According to the
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, exposure to second
hand smoke causes about 3,000
lung cancer deaths among non-
smokers and is responsible for
higher respiratory tract infection
rates in an estimated 300,000
children each year.
ECU is known as the "party
school so drinking alcohol is a
serious issue here.
When many students think
of alcohol they immediately
think of liver cancer.
Many students don't know
that heavy drinking leads to
nearly 50 percent of mouth, phar-
ynx and larynx cancers more
often than liver cancers.
Many students are unaware
of how many different kinds of
cancers are out there, but just
because one is young does not
mean one shouldn't take precau-
tions to remain healthy.
Having knowledge about
cancer is important but preven-
tion should not consume one's
entire life.
"My mother has lupus, which
prior to finding out about it I
was very ignorant when it came
to the various types of cancer.
I don't smoke or sunbathe but
cancer prevention really hasn't
been a focus in my life said
LaToya Walker junior psychol-
ogy major.
Every student should take the
time and find out about their
family history just to know for
reference what cancers or diseases
run in the family that makes one
more susceptible to disease due
to heredity.

Skinny on skin cancer
Be aware of various
forms of cancer
Merely one serious sunburn
can increase a person's chance
of skin cancer by 50 percent.
This is how easily this cancer can
become a high risk for those of us
who are just now becoming aware
that the sun can be harmful.
Melanoma is the deadliest form
ofskin cancer. Once this cancer has
spread to other parts of the body, it is
hard to stop. Although, it is one of the
easiest to tenninate if detected before
spreading, then it is 100 percent cur-
able according to
With more than 51,000 new
cases reported to the American
Cancer Society each year, skin
cancer has increased each year
for the past 10 years.
There are four types of mela-
noma. The first is superficial
spreading melanoma, which is
the most common and stays on
the top of the skin for a long time.
This is an area that is flat or slightly
raised with irregular edges with
any sort of coloring. This one is
found in mostly younger people.
The second form is lentigo
maligna, which is similar to super-
ficial spreading. The color of area
tends to be dark, brown or tan. It
is a result of chronic exposure to
the sun. This form of melanoma
is found mostly in the elderly.
"I wear SPF 40 all the time
in the summer said Mike
Schmitt, a senior theater major.
Acral lentiginous melanoma
is interesting in that it is mostly
found under fingernails, on the
bottoms of feet and the palms
of people's hands. This is one
of the only forms of skin cancer
that is more common in African
Americans and Asians and not
people with fair skin.
Lastly, isthe nodular melanoma.
This is the only one that does not
start out superficial, but invasive,
which is "localized" at first diagnosis.
About 10 to 15 percent of mela-
noma cases are located on legs, arms,
see SKIN page B3

U3f1C6r from page B1
Money from items like these go to help fund cancer research
common term used to describe
the effectiveness of cancer treat-
ment. It means the cancer has
disappeared and can no longer be
detected. If cancer returns after
remission, it may be referred to
as "progression" or "recurrence
When patients have no evidence
for five years after the initial
treatment they are finally con-
sidered cured. Cancer treatments
may be inconsistent, prolonged
or not close to your home, but
are essential when diagnosed
with cancer. Surgery, radiation
therapy, chemotherapy, biologi-
cal and hormone therapy, are all
treatments, but are not definitely
cures as of now.
Since October was Breast
Cancer Awareness month, Student
Health Services, along with other
businesses around Greenville
have been distributing pink
ribbons or pins to show
their support for the fight
against breast cancer.
"It makes me happy to see
people wearing pink ribbons
to show their support to fight
breast cancer said Ashley Yopp,
a freshman at ECU, who proudly
sports her breast cancer pin on
her backpack everyday.
Tell your friends and family
about breast cancer and the
signs they should be looking
for. You could save a life. Keep
in mind that all women are at
risk for breast cancer, even those
who have no family history of
the disease.

cancer, which is the number one
cancer killer of men and women in
the United States, is no exception.
Lung cancer occurs when
cells of the lung tissue uncontrol-
lably multiply and form tumors.
There are several causes, both
preventable and non-prevent-
able, that people need to be
aware of in order to stay healthy
and guard against lung cancer.
As a nation we try to encour-
age our citizens to pursue healthy
lifestyles, but more often than
not people continue to put them-
selves in harm's way. The issues of
smoking and lung cancer cannot
be ignored. Smoking is the lead-
ing cause of lung cancer and'
many other harmful diseases.
Smoking is the number one
preventable cause of lung cancer.
A single cigarette contains more
than 4,000 harmful ingredients
that can lead to cancer, emphy-
sema and respiratory problems
over time. A person who smokes
one pack of cigarettes a day is 20-
25 times more likely to develop
lung cancer than someone who
has never smoked before and once
a person quits smoking, it takes
IS years to bring their health level
back up comparable to that of
someone who has never smoked.
Cigar and pipe smoking also
increases a person's risk of devel-
oping lung cancer but not as great
a risk as cigarette smoking.
Other causes of lung cancer
can be attributed to genetics,
radon, asbestos, pollution, lung
diseases and personal history.
Genetics can not be pre-
vented, but if a person knows
they are at a high risk genetically,
they can decrease their chances
of getting lung cancer by not
smoking and avoiding second-
hand smoke. Also, radon is a
larger contributor to lung cancer.
Radon is a naturally occur-
ring by-product of radium that
can be found in soil and rocks.
It is clear, odorless and tasteless
and occurs in indoor and out-
door air. People who work in the
mining industry are more at risk
to radon exposure than the aver-
age person. Radon detectors can
be purchased to determine the
amount of radon in a home and
once a radon problem is fixed it
cannot come back.
Asbestos is also a leading
cause of lung cancer and lung
related illnesses. Asbestos is
found in a fiber form and when
pulled apart flies off into the air
and attaches to clothing and
other products. If inhaled asbes-
tos imbeds itself in the lungs and
damages cells, it increases the
risk of lung cancer.
Some symptoms of lung cancer
include persistent cough, chest
pain, shortness of breath, hoarse
voice, swelling of the neck and
face, significant weight loss with-
out dieting or regular exercise,
fatigue, loss of appetite, bloody
spit or phlegm, unexpected fever
and reoccurring infections such
as bronchitis or pneumonia.
The most common ways
to treat lung cancer are with
surgery and chemotherapy.
However, only half of all lung

cancer cases are eligible to
undergo surgery. In many cases,
if detected early enough the
cancer can be cured. For other
cases, there is a prescription drug
named gefitinib (generic name
- Iressa) that is given to patients
to prevent lung cancer cells
from growing and multiplying.
As with all cancers, early
detection is the ky. Regular
check-ups with a general prac-
titioner will help increase a
person's knowledge about their
body and what to be looking for
to ensure a healthy body.

trunk, elderly and scalps of men.
Basal Cell Carcinoma is the most
common of all cancers with 800,000
Americans diagnosed per year. The
age group mostly found with this
cancer is decreasing each year.
BCC comes from sun expo-
sure on the face, ears, neck, scalp,
shoulders and back. People with fair
skin, bluegreengray eyes and light
colored hair are at a higher risk in
almost all cancers. It is highly recom-
mended to examine skin monthly
if one feels they are at high risk.
The second most common
form of skin cancer is called
Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Areas
mostly exposed to the sun, at
high risk, include lips and rim of
ears. SCC penetrates to underly-
ing layers of skin after remaining
on the epidermis for a while.
People with light features are,
again, at a higher risk than others
and this cancer can even come
from scars, burns, long-standing
sores, X-rays and some chemicals.
Actinic Keratosis is the most
common pre-cancer. It is also

The base color can be either dark

touch, rather than sight, as most
others are found. It may also be
red, tender andor itching. It is
likely to be found on the face, ears,

flat, pink, slightly raised or rough.
This is the first step toward cancer.
"We need to educate people,
mainly children, on skin cancer.
We need to wear more sun-
screen and be aware of what
tanning beds do said Tres
Cobb, a business finance major.
"It is thought to induce skin
cancers by three mechanisms:
First, ultraviolet light directly
damages DNA leading to muta-
tions; second, it produces acti-
vated oxygen molecules that
in turn damage DNA and other
cellular structures; and third, it
leads to a localized immunosup-
pressant, thus blocking the body's

tanning beds emit, chances of skin
cancer increases, there could be

ecu stiii Pirates riding momentum into Houston
for identity
Team attempts to iron
out road troubles
Will the real ECU Football
ream please stand up? Please.
It would make our lives easier.
Actually the real question may
be whether the real ECU Football
Team will just show up? Well, on
the road, that is.
Away from Dowdy-Ficklen,
heart attacks, broken remotes and
pulled out haV have become all
too familiar for the Pirate faith-
ful. However, when enjoying the
comforts of home, Pirate fans are
used to thrilling wins, the sounds
of cannons and an improving
public address announcer.
Which team will it be this
week against Houston? The road
Pirates or the home Pirates?
The blood pressure of the
Pirate Nation has to be through
the roof. The drama has to be
dangerous for the health of Pirate
fans and has to be draining on
those associated with the team.
How can Athletic Director
Terry Holland make a logical
decision on John Thompson's
tenure when he is looking at two
completely different football
teams? Truth is, right now he
can't and he probably won't.
When Holland watched the
Pirates travel to Hattiesburg,
Miss he saw a 51-10 debacle in
what was arguably the worst loss
in program history. A week later,
he sees the Pirates dominate
an inferior Army team. It just
doesn't make sense.
On the road, the Pirates are
giving up 55.3 points per game
and averaging a 42 point loss.
That's not good by any standard.
Granted, the Pirates' three road
opponents are all nationally
ranked, but Head Coach John
Thompson's team failed to com-
pete against all three.
"I believe that we've come out
tight and you can blame me for
that said Thompson about his
team on the road.
"This team doesn't get ready
like I get ready. We're still learn-
ing a lot about each other
At home, the Pirates are 2-2
with two straight wins and played
very competitively against Wake
see OPINION page B5
Pirate defenders swarm to the ball in last season s loss to Houston at Dowdy-Rcklen Stadium. ECU holds a 4-2 series advantage over the Cougars.
ECU to face C-USA foe
Cougars on the road
For the second time this
season, the Pirates are looking
to establish a winning streak on
the gridiron. ECU is hoping the
momentum from winning two
of its last three games and facing
a struggling Houston squad will
equate to the Pirates' first road
victory this season.
Both teams have won just
two games this season against
the same opponents, Army and
Tulane. ECU is coming off an
inspired 38-28 win against the
Black Knights while the Cougars
defense stifled the Green Wave
on the way to a 24-3 pounding.
Houston vs.
Tulane Recap
The Cougars scored 24 points
in the first half, and shut down
the Tulane offensive attack to
win 24-3 and improve to 2-6 on
the season.
Quarterback Kevin Kolb
threw for 267 yards and rushed
for 47 yards and a touchdown to
lead Houston. The Conference
USA victory broke a four-game
losing streak for the Cougars.
Tulane was held to just 250
total yards as Green Wave quar-
terback Lester Ricard tossed two
interceptions and the Cougars'
Wade Koehl scored on a fumble
recovery. Houston didn't allow a
touchdown for the first time all
season. Running back Anthony
Evans rushed 19 times for 87
yards and Vincent Marshall led
all receivers with seven catches
for 110 yards.
Last Meeting
Houston came to Greenville
and defeated the Pirates 27-
13 on national television last
season, handing ECU its fifth
consecutive loss to Mart the 2003
campaign. The Pirates held a
10-7 lead briefly in the second
quarter on a Desmond Robinson
touchdown run before allowing
13 unanswered points.
ECU pulled to within seven
points in the fourth quarter on
a Cameron Broadwell field goal
but Anthony Evans ripped off a
48-yard touchdown run to put
the contest out of reach.
Freshman signal-caller Kevin
Kolb was 18-of-27 for 263 yards
passing and two touchdowns.
The Cougars utilized a host of
running backs to amass 170 yards
on the ground.
Pirates' tailback Marvin
Townes exploded for 188 yards
rushing on 25 carries, but three
costly turnovers hindered the
Pirates. Robinson tossed two first-
half interceptions before being
pulled in favor of Paul Troth.
Troth fared even worse, complet-
ing just 2-of-13 passes with a pick.
Players to Watch
After an outstanding freshman
season, Kevin Kolb has continued
to impress with a solid sophomore
campaign. Kolb leads the confer-
ence in passing yards with 1,944
and has completed 55.5 percent
of his attempts. But one small
problem, he hasn't been able to
find the end zone. Kolb takes
care of the football, as evidenced
by his seven touchdown passes
and only three interceptions. But
compared to his 25 touchdown
passes last season, the sopho-
more and the offense has strug-
gled to put points on the board.
Houston averages just above
20 points per game but looking at
the stat sheet, it seems as if they
have the firepower to put up 40.
Complimenting Kolb in the
backfield is a tandem of running
backs Anthony Evans and Ryan
Gilbert. Evans has an impressive
6.2 yards per carry average and
that could pose a threat to the
Pirates' defense. However, Army
running back Carlton Jones
boasts a 6.7 yard per carry average
and ECU held him to under five
yards a tote last week. Evans has
rushed for 450 yards this season
and Gilbert has carried the ball
82 times for 325 yards.
Wide receiver Vincent Mar-
shall has been Kolb's primary
target in 2004. The 5-foot, 7- inch
junior is a constant deep threat
and one of the best wideouts in C-
USA. Marshall is second in the con-
ference with 850 receiving yards
and has 49 receptions this season.
Despite returning nine start-
ers on defense, the Cougars have
allowed more than 30 points per
game. Senior linebacker Lance
Everson will be active as always
this weekend. Everson leads
Houston with 88 tackles includ-
ing 11 tackles for a loss.
One player that ECU linemen
will need to key on is defensive
end Joe Clay. Pirates' quarterback
James Pinkney has been under an
immense amount of pressure in
the pocket and Clay will look to
add even more. The senior leads
the team with seven sacks and 12
tackles for loss.
Keys to the Game
The Pirates will need another
defensive effort similar to last
week's win over Army. ECU
wasn't dominating, but made
enough plays and forced some key
turnovers against a potent Black
Knights offense. The secondary
will have to step up and force
Kolb to throw short and inter-
mediate passes as Houston has
the potential for a long gain on
every play, especially with wide
receiver Vincent Marshall. The
Pirates will need to know where
he is on every down and also keep
tabs on Anthony Evans.
Pass protection is the key to
James Pinkney's success. The
sophomore gdt it last week and
responded with three touchdown
passes to Bobby Good. Pinkney's
26-of-36 performance with 285
yards earned him C-USA Offen-
sive Player of the Week. Running
backs Marvin Townes and Art
Brown also got into the mix
after a quiet start to the season.
Both should step up and share
the load once again with fresh-
man phenom Chris Johnson.

�Not featured in this Installment: Brandl Renfro (39-31)
Leonard still in front
As the college football season
flits the home stretch, so does the
TEC weekend predictions. Most
of the staff struggled last week,
but David Waskiewicz notched
a solid 7-3 record. Waskiewicz is
just a game behind Robert Leon-
ard as Matthew Foster and myself
remain in close pursuit.
Virginia Tech vs. UNC
The Tarheels will still be in
the clouds after knocking off the
Miami Hurricanes last week. UNC
is getting a few undeserving votes
in the polls but I think a Hokies
35-17 should silence that.
Georgia Tech
vs. NC State
The Wolfpack are sorely miss-
ing Philip Rivers. Quarterback
Jay Davis struggled to open the
season but settled down and
played well until last week's
debacle. Davis tossed five inter-
ceptions and a repeat perfor-
mance against the Yellow Jackets
will have the NC State faithful
calling for his head. However, I
think State responds well with a
23-20 win.
Oklahoma vs.
Texas A&M
Texas A&M was embarrassed
last season In a 77-0 rout at the
hands of Oklahoma. Look for
them to respond accordingly.
Instead of a 77-point loss, it may
be by only 30. The Sooners are
out to prove a close win last week
was only a fluke and they should
win decisively 42-12.
Oklahoma State
vs. Texas
Oklahoma State nearly pulled
off the upset against in-state
rival i ikI,ilii mi.i but came up just
short. This conference match-up
will prove to be a close one, but I
think the Cowboys lose in heart-
breaking fashion once again, fall-
ing 28-27 to the Longhorns.
ECU vs. Houston
If the Pirates were playing at
home against the Cougars, I'd
take ECU to win their second
straight without even think-
ing. Unfortunately they are not
and the Pirates have struggled
away from Dowdy-Ficklen Sta-
dium. Until Head Coach John
Thompson can have his squad
playing with confidence in an
unfriendly atmosphere, I have
to take the home team. Houston
wins 30-20.
Eagles vs. Steelers
Pittsburgh is playing in
the premier game in the NFL
ranks once again. Last week, Ben
Roethlisberger and the Steelers
ended the Patriots' winning
streak. I was wrong about that
game as Roethlisberger looked
magnificent. As much as I'd like
to think Pittsburgh can hand
Philly its first loss, I'm taking the
Eagles 27-23.
Raiders vs. Panthers
Close your eyes in this match-
up between two cellar dwell-
ers. Raiders' quarterback Kerry
Collins plays his former team
at Carolina but nothing should
change. Collins will toss two or
three picks and Panthers' quarter-
back Jake Delhomme could throw
a few as well. Both teams will
struggle running the ball. Mixed
in could be a few touchdowns,
maybe. 1 think Oakland wins this
one 17-13.
Cowboys vs. Bengals
Dallas responded to criticism
with a win last week while Cin-
cinnati faltered. I would like to
see Jon Kitna get a start ahead of
Carson Palmer but it's not going
to happen. Palmer's lucrative
contract earns him the nod and
another loss, this time a 23-10
defeat at the hands of Dallas.
Texans vs. Broncos
The Houston Texans knocked
off Jacksonville last week as quar-
terback David Carr has played
exceptionally well this season. But
Denver's running game will prove
to be too much for the Texans to
handle as the Broncos win 22-17.
Vikings vs. Colts
There will be another shoot-
out in Indy this weekend. The
Chiefs sliced through the Colts
last week, but that was on the
ground. Minnesota is a passing
team and with receiver Randy
Moss nursing an injury, India-
napolis wins easily 34-20.

Lady Pirates prepare
for conference action
ECU volleyball looks to
improve upon streak
With only four opponents
left on the schedule, it has
become crunch time for the
ECU Volleyball Team. The Lady
Pirates are 10-14 overall and 4-5
in the conference, and each win
is critical for the team in order
to earn a spot in the Conference
USA tournament.
ECU is on a two-game win-
ning streak and will be looking
for the momentum to carry into
this weekend as they travel to
face Louisville and Cincinnati.
Head Coach Colleen Munson
believes the Lady Pirates are
ready for the road trip.
"We are excited and confi-
dent said Munson.
"We are looking forward to
the competition this weekend
Louisville will prove to be the
most challenging team the Lady
Pirates have faced all season.
The Lady Cardinals are 20-2
and have not lost a conference
match. The team is also on a 12-
game winning streak and will
be looking to extend that with
a victory against ECU. Most of
the Lady Cardinals' points come
from junior Lena Ustymenko,
who leads the team with 289
kills. Overall, Louisville has hit
.310 as a team compared to their
opponent's .140.
Cincinnati is 18-8, with eight
of their wins coming in confer-
ence play. Senior Julie Dupont
leads the Lady Bearcats with an
impressive 476 kills, averaging
more than five a game. Sopho-
more Noel Olson can take credit
for setting up most of the kills.
She leads the squad with 1,147
assists so far this season. Overall,
Cincinnati has hit .245.
The Lady Pirates are going to
keep the same strategy they have
had all year heading into these
critical games.
Juniors Erica Wilson, Paige
Howell and sophomore Jaime
Bevan have been the core of ECU'S
offense with each player record-
ing more than 200 kills. Sopho-
more Heidi Krug sets up most
of the kills with her assists, and
so far she has 1,008 this season.
Junior Johanna Bertini leads the
defense with her 364 blocks.
The Lady Pirates are going to
keep the same strategy they have
had all year heading into these
critical games.
"1 am not going to say we
need to block a certain amount
of balls or anything like that
Munson said.
"We just need to play hard
and play to the end of the game.
We need to pursue to the end of
the match and know that we are
a good team

Auburn now No. 3 in
new BCS standings
The Tigers celebrate after a victory over rival Mississippi.
USC, Oklahoma at top
KRT � Auburn moved
squarely into the national-title
picture Monday with the release
of the latest BCS standings.
Thanks to losses by Miami
and Florida State on Saturday,
the Tigers moved up one spot,
to third, in the latest standings.
Miami fell from third to 10th
after losing at North Carolina
and the Seminoles plummeted
from fifth to 13th after falling
at Maryland.
USC and Oklahoma remained
first and second, and stayed on a
collision course for a meeting in
the Jan. 4 Orange Bowl.
Once-beaten California
made a big jump, from eighth
to fourth. The Golden Bears,
who have back-to-back shutouts,
moved up because they made a
huge jump in the BCS computers,
from 14th to fifth.
Despite moving up in the
two media polls, unbeaten
Utah remained sixth In the BCS
because its computer ranking
dropped a spot, from fifth to sixth.
Unbeaten Wisconsin was idle
this past weekend but moved up
two spots, to fifth, in the BCS.
The Badgers climbed in both
media polls, and that was enough
for them to vault past Utah.
If Utah finishes sixth or
better in the final BCS standings,
which come out Dec. 5, the Utes
are guaranteed a BCS berth. They
would become the first team from
outside the six so-called "BCS
leagues" to play In a BCS game.
"When you are 8-0, the best
thing about it is that you have
a chance to get to 9-0 Utah
Coach Urban Meyer said after
Saturday's victory over San Diego
State. "That's the only thing
we're focused on
The Big East champ is guar-
anteed a BCS berth, and West
Virginia is the highest-placed
league team in this week's stand-
ing at No. 16. The only other
Big East team in the standings is
Boston College at No. 25. Confer-
ence USA (with No. 15 Louisville
and No. 23 Southern Miss) and
the Western Athletic Conference
(with No. 12 Boise State and
No. 24 UTEP) each has schools
ranked higher than the Big East.
Utah is the only Mountain
West school in the standings.
There are three components
to the BCS formula: The Asso-
ciated Press Top 25, the USA
TodayESPN coaches' poll and
six computer ratings. In the
computer ratings, a team's high
and low scores are tossed out,
and the four middle scores are
used to find the average. Each
component counts one-third.
While strength of schedule
no longer is a separate compo-
nent, all six computers have a
strength-of-schedule factor In
their rankings.
USC and Oklahoma each
is first in three computers, and
each is second in the other three.
Auburn Is third in all six.
California's computer rank-
ings range from fourth to 13th.
Wisconsin's range from seventh
to 13th. And Utah's range from
fourth to 11th.
There are six unbeatens in
Division I-A. Never in the six-
year history of the BCS have
three schools in the final BCS
top 10 finished unbeaten.

Opinio11 from pageB4
Forest and a surging Cincinnati
team. The Pirates are only giving
up 27 points a contest, which is
a dramatic difference from the
numbers on the road.
"We changed up our routine a
little bit last week Thompson said
about preparing for a home game.
"We will try to do some this
week. We may do a couple of
things differently
Hopefully, the outcome will
be different. The time is now to
find out what this ECU team is
made out of. With three win-
nable games on the schedule
against mediocre Conference
USA opponents, the Pirates feel
they have a shot to win out.
"We are trying to get to .500
and go to a bowl game said
quarterback James Pinkney.
Houston will provide the first
obstacle to that goal on Satur-
day. The Cougars are parallel to
the Pirates in beating the same
opponents. Both teams have
two wins, both of which are in
the conference. Both teams are
under second-year head coaches.
Both teams have talented sopho-
more quarterbacks. The list goes
on and on. The two teams are
virtual mirror images of each
"We've got to relax a little
bit Thompson said.
Maybe with a win, the Pirate
Nation can relax a little bit as
well. If not, well, let's not think
about that.

Muslim tackle feels at
home at Notre Dame
AP � Like many students
at Notre Dame, offensive tackle
Ryan Harris finds time every day
to pray, thanking God for his
many blessings.
Unlike most other students
at Notre Dame, though, Harris
prays facing Mecca.
Hams is Muslim and findsnothlng
unusual in attending the nation's best-
known Roman Catholic university.
"This is ust a great place to be
for anybody of any faith Harris
said. "I definitely like the morals
that are taught at this school
weren't taught at other schools
Harris, a sophomore starter
from St. Paul, Minn thinks a lot
of Muslims are drawn to faith-
based schools because the stricter
codes fit their lifestyles.
Coming to Notre Dame just
seemed natural to him. Harris
had attended a Catholic high
school, and Notre Dame let
him know the university had a
Muslim student association.
"Notre Dame did a good job in
recruiting me, introducing me to
Muslims and the type of Muslims that
are here in the community he said.
Coach Tyrone Willingham
said an obstacle he faces in
recruiting non-Catholics to
Notre Dame Is that opponents
try to convince players that they
might not fit in at the school.
"What we've found is that
Notre Dame is a place that
respects one's spirituality
Willingham said. "Therefore, I
think Ryan's been comfortable
in his religion and been able to
function well in our program
Harris said Notre Dame is
showing its openness to all
religions in its attempts to bring
Muslim scholar Tariq Ramadan
to the school to teach. The U.S.
government revoked Ramadan's
work visa this summer at the
request of the Department of
Homeland Security.
Ramadan, a Swiss citizen,
has been criticized for alleged
links to Islamic militants and for
remarks branded anti-Semitic.
He has denied links to militants
and said he is not anti-Semitic
and opposes all violence.
Harris said he is proud his
university is fighting to bring
Ramadan to the school.
"To some people that might just
be a good publicity thing, but for
Muslims and students who know
about Islam, that's a big step this
university is taking and a very bold
step Harris said. "I could sense
that when I was being recruited
Harris was not raised Muslim.
His parents are Unitarian. He
said he became interested in
Islam in eighth grade through a '
social studies class. He wanted to
learn more, so his parents gave
him books on the subject.
"I looked into it and found
that a lot of things that I dis-
agreed with in other religions I
agreed with with Islam he said.
"It was just a great feeling
Harris was a junior in high
school when the terrorist attacks
occurred on Sept. 11, 2001. The
attacks caused some friends to ques-
tion him about his religion, and he
had some questions of his own.
"It gave me a great opportunity
to look into the religion that 1 prac-
tice and make sure this is something
I wanted to be into, because it was
still roughly new to me he said. "It
gave me a real good chance to tell
people close to me and give them
the true Islam, the peaceful Islam
that is practiced by 99.9 percent of
Muslims around the world
