tabulations to the Provisional Council.

Problem Upsets School
. The Albany Symphony Orchestra,
under the direction of Edgar Curtis,
will present its third concert of the
current season on Monday, March
15, at 8:15 p.m. at Bethlehem Central Senior High School auditorium,
Delaware Avenue, Delmar, N.Y.
Miss Sylvia Katchadourian, s o - '
prano, will be the guest artist. A
resident of Loudonville, Miss Katchadourian was born in Alexandria,
Egypt. She studied voice in Swltzerland, at the Zurich Conservatory,
of Music, and received a Bachelor
of Music degree from the Eastman
School of Music, where she is now
working for her Master's degree.
The president of Boston University, Harold Case,
ended his recent controversy with the "BU News,"
the student newspaper, when he withdrew his demand
for prior reading and editing of the newspaper by the
administration. The president announced his decision
at a meeting with the newspaper's editors.
His

emergency meeting with recommendations to resolve the
the student government problem.
Student Petition
which backed the "News" At the outset
of the disagreement
Editorial autonomy was a petition was circulated throughout
the
student
body.
It called for the

reorganization of the paper giving
government called for the ^SeTSongress t f f M S S
deletion of a clause from to publish it.
This would create an independent
the paper's constitution.
The clause sanctions the prior
reading of paper's copy by the
President, Vice President for Student Affairs and/or the Editorial
Advisor. The President assured the
editor of "News" that the clause
would not be Invoked as long as the
newspaper retained "a standard of
responsible journalism."
Paper Financed by Faculty
The school's paper Is financed
through the University and not by
the student body and, as a result,
the Administration has the right to
censor the publication.
The president had demanded that
a front-page statement by him be
primed and that an article dealing
with a committee appointed to study
the "News" be printed "in a prominent position."
Werner Buncschuh, editor of the
paper, called the demand a step
towards censorship of the publication. The Student Congress backed
Buncschuh's statement, called the
proposal a direct violation of the
students' right to freedom of the
press, and urged its withdrawal.
Congress Proposes
The Congress proposed that the
editors of the paper remain on to
May with editorial freedom and that
Congress representatives, editors
and Case meet then to select a staff
for the following year and set a
policy to guide the publication.
The Congress also called for a
rally by the students to inform
them of the situation with the
"News."
The story of the controversy appeared in the Boston newspapers
and was broadcast over the city's
radio and television networks.
Case in an interview said that
his decision to censor the paper
precipitated by the paper's distortion of the news in recent months.
He also announced that a committee would be formed to "look
over" the University communications media. He expressed his hope
paper, owned and published by the
students. The budget of the paper
would be transferred to the student
government. If the majority of the
student body signs the petition, it
will be presented to Case.
The students hold that this is in
accordance with the Committee on
Faculty Responsibility for Academic
Freedom of Students which states
that the "academic community requires freedom to exchange information and ideas. The faculty should
promote and sustain institutional
policies which will provide students
the freedom to establish their own
publications and to conduct them
free of censorship or of administrative determination of content or
editorial policy."

"IVAN THE TERRIBLE," rated one of the 10 best all-time films, will be shown tomorrow night at 7
and 9:15 p.m. in D-349. The chorge will be 50< for this Russian.film with English subtitles.
IFG to Present 'Ivan the Terrible9
by G. P. Minimus
"Ivan the Terrible," Part I, which
the International Film Group will
present tomorrow night, is considered the culminating masterpiece
of the Russian Film genius Sergei
M. Elsenstein, often considered the
"most Influential film director who
ever lived."
Indeed, Eisenstein's work was so
important that only six feature films
of his were released In the twentyfive years that he worked in the
medium, his influence was so pervasive that in the 1962 poll of 100
critics conducted by "Sight and
Sound" magazine, Elsenstein took
first place with 44 votes as "most
important director."
Along with D. W. Griffith, Elsenstein is considered one of the founding fathers of the cinema. Eistenstein's particular contribution lay
in the area of what one might call
the "Intellectual Cinema."
the film score and dialogue could
also be brought into correlation with
the visual montage.
In 1941, the Mosfilm studios decided to produce an historic film on
Ivan the Terrible. Historical films
had proven popular, and because
Eisenstein had had good luck with
"Alexander Nevsky," (which the
IFG showed last year), he was chosen
to direct "Ivan."
Eisenstein was fortunately given
a free hand in the writing of the
script, and in the shooting of "Ivan."
The result was a very strong, controlled film with a unique editorial
and visual style even today.
"This is a story of a man —
not a legend," reads the opening
title. It was clearly the director's
intention to show the anguish and
loneliness of his historical personality.
The film does, perhaps, show an
unimportant weakness — that of
looseness of overall structure —
but operatic dramatic quality of this
unique film experience proves viable
today, twenty years after.
Miss Katchadourian's appearances on the stages of Europe,the
Middle East, and the United States
have received high praise from
critical quarters.
She was recently selected as the
winner of the first Kirsten Flagstad
Memorial Scholarship award.
The program for the concert Includes "The Roman Carnival Overture" by Berlioz, Recitative and
Aria from Beelini's "Norma" (Miss
Katchadourian soloist), and Symphony No. 9 in C Major by Schubert.
Tickets for the concert are available jU_Van_CjnJer_MusJc^aJ_Ten_

Farce, Propose Reform, in Dorms
To Colonie Fourth Graders
The' changing times are linguistically reflected at Maplewood Elementary School In Colonie (also
Watervllet High School, and Albany
Evening High School) where Ronald
Bustln teaches the Russian language
to twenty-three fourth grade pupils.
Here' may be found the only elementary school In the nation where
pupils study Russian at such a
tender age.
Bustln Is a 1964 graduate of Albany State and is currently taking

Realistic Teaching
I t ' s net a pledge duty. I t ' * i u i t that t i n e * the l i b r a r y ' s open 7 day» a week now lomebody should try
for a record.
Clarification of Policy
In light of several remarks made in
letters to the editors this week, we feel
it necessary to clarify our policy in c e r tain respects. It is not and has not been
our intention to criticize o r ridicule
authority for its own sake.
In many respects the authority on this
campus is as liberal and reasonable as
that to be found anywhere. In one important area, rules governing student conduct, particularly that of women, it is
far behind the standard which should
be expected in a university.
We strongly feel that the role of authority in a university is to extend the
greatest degree of freedom to the students, and then stand ready to provide
advice and guidance to those individuals
who are unable to accept the responsibility which must accompany this freedom.
Unfortunately, the policy of the past
which has continued into the present has
been to lay down rigid rules for p r e scribed conduct, and then to remove
from membership in the university those
who do not conform.
We realize, of course, that some rules
are necessary in order to have structure
and order in the society. But these rules
should come, as far as possible, from
within the group, in this case the student
body.
Every rule which is imposed from
"above" makes it that much easier to
have a smooth-running well-regulated
society — and that much harder for the
individual to develop the responsibility
which makes such rules unnecessary.
Many changes in attitudes and policies
are now underway and are directed
toward this granting of individual freedom. However, these' seem to be much
too slow at times to be of any consequence or benefit to students who spend
only four years here.
Drastic, hurried, and radical changes
are, of course, unadvisable and usually
harmful, but all too often the people in
the position of making policy go to the
other extreme of being overcautious.
It has been our hope that we could
help to speed up these changes so that
the students who are calling for the
change will be able to benefit from it.
Preparation, evaluation, orientation
are necessary and have their place,
but unless the freedom is concretely
given, no growth can occur.
Change in South Takes Courage
We are all appalled by the action
taken by Governor George Wallace in
quelling the recent demonstrations by
Negroes in Selma, Alabama. The barbaric use of state troopers armed with
tear gas, nightsticks, and whips has
surpassed all the South's previous attempts to prevent Negro demonstrations.
The Negroes began their march peacefully but after walking several blocks
they were met by a barricade of troope r s who were equipped with gas masks
and had their nightsticks ready to crush
the marchers.
The troopers ordered the marchers
to stop and disband but the Negroes held
fast. The troopers then charged into the
masses pushing the first line of marchers
to the pavement. As the drive continued,
a cheer went up from the white spectators who were observing the "show."
When the Negroes began to disband
the mounted troopers drove their horses
into the demonstrators. Again the white
onlookers gave out with a cheer.
Suddenly a shot was fired and a barrage of tear gas began to dominate the
scene. But before the gas could totally
obliterate the strife, the nightsticks were
seen flailingattheheadsof the marchers.
This scene has become all too common
in a country whose basic tenets include
the freedom to voice a protest. Many
cries have sounded deploring this barbarism in the South.
Some of these cries have aroused a
group of Southern whites in Alabama
who have formed the Concerned White
Citizens Council.
This group staged a demonstration
protesting the brutal treatment of Negroes. One of the leaders stated that
"we have waited for changes and improvements but nothing changes tand
nothing improves. I have felt it was
time to show that a group of demonstrators can have a face other than
that of a Negro."
This movement is only a beginning
but it expresses the sentiment of many
white Southerners who are sick of reading about the savage treatment of Negroes in their homeland. When enough of
these people gain the courage to speak
out against the manner in which Negro
demonstrators are treated, these brutalities which we have witnessed In the
South will vanish forever.
Mr. Bustln believes in teaching
"realistically." To prove it, his
classroom is packed with Journals
of unusual symbols and Illustrations straight from Soviet life.
Bustln uses audio-lingual techniques to impart the languge. "We
have no syllabus for this course,"
notes Principal Ruth Chaloux. "We
are playing it by ear."
All told, pupils of five classes
(grades four through eight) are taking the course as an elective. And
the younger children have displayed
the greatest affinity for It.
"No question about It: The younger
the pupil, the less inhibited," Bustln explained.
The youngsters sing Christmas
carols in Russian, stage mock meetings on Moscow Streets, and, in
addition to conversing in the foreign
tongue, are becoming more familiar
with Soviet customs, culture and
day-to-day life.
heart," says Mr. Bustln, who at 22
i s the first student to graduate from
Albany State with a B.A. degree as
a Russian major,
"I am Interested in a youngster's
oral compulsion," he said in reference to the audio-lingual method.
"His reading and writing can come
later."
He noted that a double problem
awaits any teacher of Russian,
"There Is always the hurdle of prejudice to overcome," he said.
"People are traditionally conservative...! had one parent who refused to
let her child take Russian because
"They're all Communists,"
Introducing a course in Russian
presents a few simple hurdles also.
Mrs. Chaloux, principal at Maplewood since 1951, recalled that a
year ago the Board of Education
discussed a proposal to have a second language taught.
French Abandoned
"At one time (In 1956) we taught
French in the lower grades," she
said, "It was a once-a-week affair,
not like this Russian class. We had
to abandon the French program or
else hire a full time teacher for it,
which at the time, the board decided
not to do."
Last year the board agreed to
a mail survey of parents to see if
they would be interested In a second
language. Russian was the language
decided upon.
"More than 90 percent of the
parents answered affirmatively,"

Committee Set-up Vital
The recently inaugurated Provisional Council is
confronted with an extremely difficult task; within the
next seven weeks, the Council must set into constitutional form a completely revised structure of student
government, and, at the same time, fulfill all the regular functions of Senate.
As indicated by its first series of meetings, the
Council's twenty-six voting members are highly competent individuals who are all motivated by a strong
desire to provide the university with themostoperative
structure of student government.
However, from the outset, it has been obvious that
this group is not able to produce its most constructive
work with meetings of the entire body. We strongly advocate that the Provisional Council, in the immediate
future, reorganize itself into three or four-man committees that would thoroughly investigate a specifie
area of concern.
These committees, each devoted to one particular
task, would be as efficient as the former Finance
Committee of Senate, where the bulk of arguments
and debates were resolvd in committee. This sytem
would conserve the already too short amount of time
that the Provisional Council has to work with.

To tho Editors:
Lest this letter concerning your editorial on Lower
Brubacher Lounge help balloon the subject out of proportion, let me declare at the outset that I do not feel
that the situation Is among the most Important matters
of the university, nor do I feel any moral outrage, or
even particular interest, In the activities of lower
Brubacher.
I am in favor of sex among the savages — or among
the undergraduates or anyone else, and I feel that It
is largely their own business, as long as no-one Is
hurt and there is no flagrant violation of law. If the
outlet of love-making can serve as a calming or
soothing element for the rather protracted adolescent
frenzy that so many students seem to be in here, then
I am even more In favor of It.

to get their blessing.
She stressed that since Russian
is taught at Watervllet High School,
the Maplewood pupils will have an
opportunity to continue studying it.
"We were fortunate in securing
as a teacher the first Albany State
graduate majoring in Russian," she
said noting that Mr. Bustln, who is
working towards a Master's Degree,
conducts five classes between 12
and 3 p.m. each day.
Student Interest
"We try to keep our classroom
like a Soviet classroom," Mr. Bustin said. "The youngsters have
shown interest in all phases of
Russian culture, so the course maintains a freshness and vitality. In
fact, I am learning Turkish words
from one boy (in exchange for Russian words) and Italian from another."
How do the youngsters feel about
the course?
" I am still learning the 36 letters
in the Russian alphabet," said Beth
Jewett, 11, whose grandmother is
Russian. " I plan to take it in high
school ... but the new bypass (state
arterial highway) is going through
our house so I don't know where
we're moving."

Feelings Shown
Black-eyed Diane Cerrl, 9, of
Italian background, and William
Kostun, 9, whose ancestors came
from Russia, happily recited a Pushkin poem to demonstrate their feelings.
Andrew Potts, 13, spoke only
Polish and Ukranian (which differs
in stress and accent from Russian)
two years ago. Now he's proficient
in English and getting there in Russian.
Laureen Zeller, 10, of German
extraction and David Torncello, 10,
said they enjoy writing letters in
Russian, "although it's kind of
hard."
Added David: "I think it would be
useful if you ever meet a Russian
on the street."
David Cerri, 11, Diane's brother,
has another angle. "We tell our
secrets in Russian," he laughed.
Their father, by the way, teaches
English at Waterford-Half Moon

Visiting Peace Corpsntan
Recalls Costa Rkan Stint
by Debby Friedman
"Costa Rica is unlike
other
Latin
American
countries; it is a contrast
to the stereotype," said
John Helwig, a recently
returned Peace Corps Volunteer who has been on the
Albany State campus this
week as part of a recruiting team for the Peace
Corps.
Costa Rica is a developing country with a strong rural middle
class. The group of twenty-six Peace
Corps Volunteers of which he was
a member was engaged in aneducaproject. He was In a town of 7,000.
The job he faced was to complement
the reform in the educational system that was in progress in the
country.
Tasks of Project
The task was to bring In North
American methods of education to
replace archaic Costa Klcan ones.
The project concentrated on English and Science.
The entire project was set up and
run by the University of Kansas
whose sister school Is the University of Costa Rica.
Helwig said that "the students
in Costa Hlca had been learning
'about English,' not 'English.' We
worked for conversational ability."
The science teachers that were
In the project found generally unqualified teachers and virtually no
laboratories.
Helwig was there as a teacher to
give an "indifferent, catalyst effect," but also to give more base
and continuity to the school day.
In the free time that he had, he
worked with his students as much
as possible. He assisted with agricultural projects and spoke to farmer's groups.
" I got to know the area and became respected and known there,"
said Helwig. " I was there to live
and work as a school teacher."
"Next to selling coffee, education
Is the most Important thing in Costa
Rica. The government is extremely
concerned and interested In the education of the young people of the
country."
Every Costa Rican child receives
an elementary school education.
Secondary school education is possible, but much harder to acquire.
While Helwig was there, the enrollment of his school grew from 600
to 940 due to a desire to go to
school, not just a population Increase.
"I had a great compunction to
work with the students and help some
to be able to continue their education. I went there to take my education and expressions of it and do
something meaningful."
"Now," said Helwig, " I feel I
have done something and have an
awareness of Latin American educational problems and am more
Interested In International education."
John H e l w i g
Rebellion against authority figures is very much
in vogue at Albany State. Giving in to the temptation
to write ingratiating editorials merely to satisfy this
appetite lies in the area of seriously refractive responsibility. Summarily, perhaps an Introspective
self-examination of motives is In order.
William Hudson
Assistant Professor of Music
As a postscript let me say that I am not unsympathetic to a possibly over-restricted situation which
might help cause undesirable behavior on the part
of some students. This is a separate problem, however, and perhaps a more pertinent editorial might
have been one dealing with the absence of nightly
visiting privileges in dorm rooms and other rather
stringent regulations.
Ti
I
I do not feel, on the other hand, that the subject is
totally unimportant, either. Most of our students are
genuinely concerned with the prevailing atmosphere of
their school, which in many ways Is more like a high
school than a university, and since the activities of
Brubacher lounge conceivably contribute their share
to this atmosphere, they are perhaps worthy, for this
reason, of some conscientious attention.
I am writing to you, however, not because of the
subject Itself, but because of the kind of editorial you
wrote regarding It. I believe the editorial to be
similar in many ways to a number of previous editorials, and it is a matter of chance, or perhaps growing impatience, that finally. I sat down to send off a
letter on that particular editorial rather than some
previous one.
These editorials constitute a "type," the similarities being those of attitude, lack of minimal logic,
and a kind of intellectual dishonesty that seems r e grettable in a university newspaper, one which represents some degree of Influence over three thousand
students or more.
The style and technique of these editorials have
become a kind of sophomorlc cliche, a time-proven
but tired formula of authority-ridicule which undoubtedly never falls to evoke glee on the part of
those who, because of unresolved personal and/or
parental problems, still enjoy rebellion for the sake
of rebellion.
Unfortunately, because of its constant, Indiscriminate, almost compulsive use, honest and fearless
criticism, the lifeblood of any institution, is made
less effective.
In your editorial on Brubacher lounge you reduce
the activities there to "hand-holding," while exaggerating the concern of those In charge to seemingly
hysterical indignation. This conjured spectacle of
stuffy moral outrage over innocent hand-holding is
quite conducive to ridicule, being patently ludicrous.
It is, however, a misrepresentation, Its distortion
being partially minimized by the usual heavy-handed
junior high school sarcasm. It is not uncommon
knowledge that the considerable necking in Brubacher
lounge equals at least the best out of Hollywood.
The "moral outrage" was nothing more than consclentous, objective concern that the lounges be allowed to fulfill the considerable need for relaxation
by all students.
Voyeuristic tendencies notwithstanding, it cannot be
denied that highly personal behavior in a public place
dominates attention, whether It be brushing teeth,
changing clothes, urinating, or to a lesser degree,
passionate necking.
At least such behavior serves as an inhibiting
factor for casual usage, such as receiving parents
or friends, reading, or engaging In relaxed conversation. Everyone knows, Including the participants
that such behavior Is difficult to ignore completely,
and surely there Is a degree of exhibitionism in
those who choose a public rather than a private
place.
To say that there is no private place is a rationalization, and I know from experience of my own
undergraduate days that It is possible to find seclusion in more limited living quarters than the
ones here.
Quite frankly, it is not necessary to make such
regulations in many schools, because the undergraduates, possibly being somewhat more mature, do not
choose public lounges to advertise their love affairs.
When excessive bad taste, bad manners, and lack of
consideration of others make rule formulating necessary, It takes a good deal of courage to impose these
rules, since those who do so are always routinely
attacked for prudlshness.
-Additionally, those who are inordinately petty use
the opportunity for a personal smear, rather than
a objective examination of facts, which should be
the only concern.
I should like you, the editorial writer, to consider
the following questions: Do you sincerely feel that
behavior in student lounges Is of no Importance, as
you seem to Imply? Do you really feel that tho longconsidered decision of Mrs. Hathaway and others
concerned with the welfare of all students Is worthy of
no more than a few Hues of fatuous sneering?
I might remind you that when you write an editorial
you are not merely registering a self-gratlfylng
emotional reaction, you are consciously attempting
to influence others, in this case, over three thousand
others,
I realize that the student newspaper, like most
university organizations, is run by a handful of hardworking people. It is not unnatural to want praise
and recognition for this work. If the work Is to
represent any truly valuable fulfillment or satisfaction, though, it might be of some Importance to consider the foundation of that praise.
• i
To the Editors:
After speaking with Mr. Hudson about his letter
to this paper concerning the editorial on State's
PDA problem, I would be remiss in not sharing with
you the interesting, if not provacatlve discussion we
had.
The most interesting reaction was Mr. Hudson's
surprise at the nonexistence of regular visiting
privileges for women In the men's dorm. At both
of the Ivy league schools he attended, women were
a constant feature in many of the men's rooms with
none of the sexual bravado which we have already
associated with the lower Bru lounge.
He, In turn, surprised me with his account of
personal bars in every room at Yale. The ruling
in Waterbury Hall is that no room shall contain any
bottles which contain (or at any time contained!)
alcohol fit for consumption.
Mr. Hudson contended that at schools where
drinking is allowed in the dorm, there are less of
the effects which, we generally associate with drunkenness and the inability of retaining all of that
which one has consumed.
In the final analysis, then, it is not the problem,
as your editorial seems to state, of "if we can't
do it in Bru lounge, where can we do it," but rather,
If we as rational and mature individuals face the
problem and wipe the silly grins off our faces, can
we make our behavior fit the norm of our peers?
I submit that if we are to be entrusted with the
education of adolescents, we have no choice.
So far this soap-box oratory has merely done
what most statements of disagreement in school
policy have done; namely, posed a problem about
which nothing will be done. But I submit that when
the administration closed down PDA in Bru, they
set the precedent which shows their concern is.
as great as ours, however far apart our two ideas
may diverge.
But what I propose, on a trial basis, Is the same
measures which now work effectively in the schools
which Mr. Hudson attended. I see no reason why
co-ed students should not be allowed in the dorms
and In Individual rooms with certain specific time
limitations, most likely to coincide with women's
hours. I furthermore would like the privilege of
consuming alcoholic beverages In all rooms In the
men's dorms.
Three points must be made in order that some
misunderstandings will not arise. Both Mr. Hudson
and I agreed that, to begin with, this privilege will
be abused. I submit that those few individuals who
abuse that privilege are the same ones who defy the
state drinking age and various laws of Moses.
I believe that the vast majority of students would
profit by the privilege and would not abuse It. A
second point which Mr. Hudson feels has a bearing
on the actions of the students In the lounge and therefore would have the same effect In the rooms Is the
rebellion theory of the middle class.
Not being a sociology major, I feel I couldn't do
the theory Justice, but it briefly Interprets the prer
occupation of some students with drinking and sex
as a rebellion against authority, first in the person
of their parents, and later transferred to the school.
I submit, however, that If a student wants to become a good member of society when be leaves
State, he will somewhere along the way leave behind
his socio-economic repressions and regressions or
he will find society rebelling against him. And finally,
a point which may sound silly and naive to most, but
one which will, I am sure, be borne out by those who
are now In (he teaching profession. I submit that as a
teacher a person will not lie able to cope with the
problems of the youths In his charge If he has been
sheltered from the same problems himself.
Moreover, a person who Is not allowed a certain
amount of maturity and has not developed the insight
into problems which he has faced will never be able
to help others when they come to him with the same
problems,
Isn't this the true sign of adulthood? So must we
wait until we leave school before we are allowed to
reach it?

Russia and other soviet-bloc nations have repeatedly refused topay
their dues. During the Congo crisis,
the Russians failed to contribute
their portion for peace-keeping efforts. According to them, the assessments were illegal.

As a result, the United States
has virtually kept the UN alive.
The U. S. lead has been followed
by few other nations, but the Russians have still persisted In their
refusal.
This refusal has prompted the
United States to call for the enforcement of Article 19, which calls
for the revocation of voting rights

Collins Discuses Presidential Role
With Student Panel at Golden Eye
THE HOPE. ACTION, AND DISAPPOINTMENT of the recent coge season are refleeted in this series of pictures taken by Steve Kling of State's final home game
against Ithaca College. Losses .to Buffalo and Ithaca completely eliminated Albany's chances for a post-season tournament bid. Buffalo was recently eliminated
in the NCAA small-college division tournament by Akron University, Ohio. As Doc
Sauers walked out of the Armory on February 28 for the last time, the season still

A RayView of Sports
by Ray McCloat
The AMIA intramural basketball leagues have~been
operating for almost two months now, and we feel that
certain faults have arisen in the functioning of these
leagues that must be corrected if next year's season is
to be successfully run.
Before we examine these faults, we must admit that
some of the league's malfunctions are directly attributable to the delay caused by the construction of a new
floor in the Page Gym. There are, however, a number
of abuses that have been suffered by the teams in the
leagues that are a result of lack of foresight and poor
scheduling on the part of AMIA officials.
'Occasionally games would have to be rescheduled
due to last minute developments. In one such instance,
one of the teams was never notified of the change and,
as a result, had to forfeit the contest. Many times
during the season a team would be charged with a
technical foul because a substitute had run onto the
court before the man he was replacing had left the floor.
This was due to the lack of a substitution rule, or the
failure of the AMIA to inform the teams of one.
Too often a spectator was called on to be the scorekeeper, timekeeper, or referee, when such positions
should have been held by trained, paid league officials.
We feel, also, that it would not be too great an expense
to the AMIA to furnish a scoreboard (makeshift at that)
so that players would not have to call to the scorer's
table to find out the score of the game.
Players have the right to know what place their team
is in and who the leading scorers are in each league.
AMIA should furnish these statistics by putting them
up on the bulletin board of give It to the ASP for publication. Also, the public should be notified when an
important game is to be played In one of the four
leagues.
This year's AMIA basketball season is over, none
too soon. We can only hope that next year's season
enjoys better planning and organization that this year's
did.
Added note: Mr. Keith R. Munsey was named early
last week to pilot the frosh baseball team. Mr. Munsey,
successful cross-country coach, is replacing Bill
Sohieffelln, who is receiving a rest from the coaching
chores he has had since mid-September. If coach Munsey can be half as successful with the frosh diamondmen
as he has been with the oross-country team, the frosh
are sure to have a fine season.

"Essential to the success of a community of scholars is a foundation of mutual
trust." With this remark, Dr. Evan R. Collins, President of SUNYA, brought together
many of the points he had made in talking with a student panel at the Golden Eye
Friday night. The panel included Toni Mester, Guy McBride, Tim Atwell, and Elizabeth Webre. Alice Katz moderated the discussion.

Central Connecticut and were trounced by a fired-up home team, 102-80, to close
out the long season for State. The Albany men recorded a fine 16-6 mark and established a new record for consecutive wins, 12, in a highly successful year. On this
one.evening, however, the season was a failure.

frosh grappling squads from along
the Eastern seaboard.
Such schools as Lehigh, the University of Pittsburg, Penn State,
Cornell, Yale, Harvard, Brown, and

About the meet Itself, varsity
wrestling coach Joe Garcia had this
comment: "Formerly, rules prohibited the losers of two matches
from competing again, but now I
understand that all wrestlers who
were defeated by finalists can compote among themselves for second,
ihiwt. and fourth places."
Coach Bob Burllngame will take

and hopes that the team "makes a
good showing" In light of the tough
.competition at the meet. Mr. Garcia
feels that one of the problems the
boys have faced In past tournament
competition Is the lack of intrateam competition.
Some past State wrestling greats
who have been successful In the
tourney are Charley Cane, Clem
Crow, Tommy Farrel, and John

national champion.

"Woody's" biggest thrill since
becoming a manager was the Peds'
double overtime 83-81 win over
Plattsburgh in February. He said
that, "It was kind of satisfying."
When asked about how managing

was quoted as saying that, "You
