year buttressed by the
creation of two new vice

of Public Affairs, lias been appointed vice president for academic affairs. Dr. Clifton C

Both appointments were made

Board of Trustees.
Expanded Roles
In his new position, Dr. Fiser
will coordinate all academic matters at the growing University
Center. Dr. Thome will lie responsible for all student living

University's Existence
Aware of Responsibility
This mature person is aware of
his responsibility and has "an unending curiosity leading to serious
scholarship."
He is a person who knows the
value of privacy; Gould sald - triat
the "real test of the educated man
is what he can find to do when he
is left to his own device with no
gadgets to help him."
Still another element of maturity
"A university education is not
merely preparation for life; it is
life itself."
He called the student the " s e lected, and ultimately the educated,
core of our society and our hope
for leadership in all aspects of
life."
Gould said that it is the function
of the university to bring about an
awareness in the student. This Is
done through the classroom, per-

given all this, a mature, independent, individualized person
should emerge."
Gould called the existence of
the university a "major bastion
against ignorance and the wellspring of ideas by which "civilization progresses."
"In a democratic society we are
committed to the belief that a
university should be free and untrammeled in Its explorations and
that the shadow of tiiought control
should never touch it.
"Adherence to tills principle is
the best guarantee we have of the
preservation and nurture of our
democratic ideals."
He said that a university's major
responsibility to the student is to
prepare him for the "sharing of
the passion and action of our time
and to place you (the student)
squarely In the midst of both even
while you are students.

Summer Conferences Prepare Freshmen
A total of 1270 members of the Clasa of 1969
attended the eight sessions of the Stammer Planning Conference held between June 28 ^and August
X this T a r . The Summer Planning Conference,
now inite second year, provided ^comprehensive

member in the organization.
But many of you will find that you
do not have enough time to devote to
each organization. If this happens, you
will become a vestigial member in
eaoh activity you Join.
To avoid becoming a do-nothing
member, just sign up for a few organizations. Be active in only them and
contribute as much as you can. If you
find you have additional time to contribute to other activities then do so.
But it is better to be active in a few
organizations, than to become deadwood in many.
Welcome Faculty
When welcomes are extended by student newspapers, they usually center
entirely on students. We wish to welcome our new faculty and our new
staff members.
No university community Is composed entirely of students; the community is made up of everyone from
President Collins to a freshman to a
kitchen worker. We of the 'ASP hope
you will all be members of our reading
audience and that you will feel free to
express your opinions in letters to our
editors.
We extend a special greeting to the
new professors, instructors and graduate assistants. We are enthusiastic in
this welcome because of the position
teaching holds in this university.
Albany State has never been a "publish or perish" institution. The teaching of students and the counseling of
students are of as great importance as
publishing. We feel this is as it should
be.
Activities Day
Welcome, freshmen, to our forever
expanding University. Like most freshrmen you are eager to take an active
part in the various activities on campus..
Tomorrow on Activities Day you will
receive your chance to sign up for these
activities. In your eagerness many of
you will probably join several organizations. This is all well and good, if
you are going to be able to be an active

Residence Meetings
While one group was engaged In
the appointments, a second group
remained In Alden. There, men
and women residents attended separate meetings led by a men's
and a women's residence director.
The commuters went to a meeting
with Harry Nuchols and Louise
Myers, the two Student Assistants
who were commuters.
At the end of these meetings,
the second group convened for a
discussion and explanation of student government by Richard
Thompson, Chairman of Central
Council.
The third morning was taken up
with the completion of questionnaires, registration forms, and an
evaluation of the SPC.
No matter what the scheduled
.event, the main activity of the
Conference was talk. In meetings,
between meetings, at meals, in
the halls, with roommates and
with advisors, there was a constant flow of questions, answers,
Information and advice.
RICHARD THOMPSON, Chairman of Central Council, explains the history and organisation of student government on campus. Thompson emphasised the cole freshman participation would play in
the structure of the new government.
Change, challenge, and
confidence — these three
words, according to evaluations, spell for many
freshmen the meaning of
the Summer Planning
Conference,
nt
At the end of each of the eight
sessions, the freshmen were given
the opportunity to rate every aspect of the Conference, from academic advisement to registration.
Additional space was provided
for written criticism on the most
and least helpful aspects of the
Conference.
The purpose 01 such a detailed
evaluation was to gather freshman
criticism and comment of the success and shortcomings of the conference. These evaluations will be
used to further Improve each succeeding conference.
The overall rating ofthe conference Itself was high. Of the 12G1
freshmen who completed the evaluation forms, 88.0% rated the conference as "excellent" or "very
good."
E x c e s s of Lectures
The next highest rating was received by the Individual academic
advisement appointments, which
87,7% of the freshmen thought were
excellent or very good.
Probably the most common criticism of the conference was that
there were "too many lectures."
The opening convocation, for example, received the lowest percent of excellent and very good
ratings (39.5%), hut 43.7% of the
freshmen found It "satisfactory."
Talks on the new student government and residence-hall living were fairly well received.

There are interesting sidelights to
most controversies. The witchhuntover
The Torch is no exception.
Now that The Torch is preparing its
book for 1966, it is going through a
process of evaluating the various sections of the 1965 book.
The section that evoked the greatest
number of complaints was the section
on the fraternities and sororities.
Of eight sororities, not one has paid
its bill to the yearbook. The first bill
was sent last April. Two notices were
also ignored. Only KB of the five frats
has bothered to fulfill its financial obligations.
It is in this light that the ASP feels
the Greeks are in a weak position
when they speak of yearbook's responsibilities.
The failures of the Greeks do not
erase the few errors of the yearbook,
but the Greeks could put their nonhouses in order.
A third group was given a tour
of the New Campus, including the
power plant and the commissary.
They were also shown slides of the
annexes and of the Albany area.
Each evening the freshmen met
in small co-ed discussion groups.
The discussions were led by the
student assistants.
"Welcome to Albany's
community of scholars.
No matter what you
thought of yourself before, here at Albany we
think and assume that you
are a person who is coming to college to learn."
With these words at the Opening
Convocation, Dr. Howard Maxwell,
Director of Academic Advisement,
set the tone for the Summer Planning Conference.
From the very beginning of the
conference, the freshmen were
treated as scholars. Each activity
was geared to acquaint them with
the freedoms and responsibilities
of a scholar In an academic com,l
munity.
i
Individual Freedoms
"The freedoms that you will experience can be a misleading drug
and will prove to be your most
valuable lesson of the freshman
year," continued Dr. Maxwell.
"The test of real maturity will be
the use of this freedom with responsibility.
"The student remembers that
he Is here In college to make of
himself all that he is capable of
becoming. He has an obligation to
ills family, state, and nation, as
well as to himself, to take advantage of the educational opportunities that are available here at
the University."
Dr. Morris, who spoke to the
group earlier, outlined the responsibility which the University
felt in helping students to achieve
this feeling of community,
"The State University of New
York at Albany Is committed to the
elimination of those causes which
tend to annihilate the feeling of
personal worth on the part of the
individual," he said.
"You will find that almost all
members of this faculty, administration, student affairs staff, residence hall directors, and resident
assistants are ready, willing, and
able to discuss any matter of personal concern to you at anytime."
your involvement In the government.
"Your primary concern Is academic achievement. But there Is
much to be gained from the many
activities and programs available
here. If you are to fully develop
your potential, I feel, it Is necessary thai you seek out the avenue
which can best fulfill your needs."
The emphasis on Individual responsibility carried throughout the
three-day program. It also formed
the essence of the concluding remarks of Dr. Morris.
"You are to be congratulated on
your demonstrated intellectual
ability. Your records are of high
caliber — You have the ability to
do the work here — there Is no
doubt about this fact.
"You will get out of your collegiate education as much as you
put into It. However, as in any
phase of a person's life, you will
only get from your collegiate education In proportion to that which
you give to It."
THE TALK NEVER STOPPED, especially during meals. The
good food was only a background for more conversation, more
information, more friendships.
Parents9 Brief Orientation Includes
Convocation, Reception, Campus Tour
Parents who brought
their children to the Summer Planning Conference
received their own orientation to Albany State. A
convocation, reception,
and tour of the New Campus provided a brief but
important introduction of
what to expect in the next
four years.
At the convocation both Dr. Clifton C. Thorne, Dean of Students,
and Dr. Robert B. Morris, Dean
of the University College, talked
with the parents. They explained
the purposes and activities of the
Summer Planning Conference and
Introduced several of the academic
advisors and other administration.
The emphasis, however, was on
the changes which the student would
experience In both his social and
academic life, changes which the
parents should expect and be prepared for.
University Extends Help
Dr. Maxwell also spoke of the
University's willingness to extend
aid, especially in regard to the
University College, "We are experienced in helping freshmen
through a year that will prove to
be exciting and at times difficult.
I think you will find that we can
be of great help to you, but you
must let us know when you do
need help."
This responsibility of the freshman to take the initiative was
emphasized by Richard Thompson,
Chairman of Central Council, In
his explanation of the student government structure.
"Through the Central CouncilCommission form of government,

"This is a time when students'

said Dr. Thorne. "It Is a time

University, but this must happen
If these students are to grow,"
Parents were urged to "cut the
umbilical cord now," to "let them
go, but encourage, support them."
They were reminded that in college students should haveresponsibllity for their financial affairs
and social lives as well as their
academic work.
Dr. Morris talked with the parents at length about probable
changes in academic performance.
"Parents have observed their
young people climb to the top of
the academic ladder and are proud
of the academic achievements obtained by their children... But here
In the Class of 19G9, there will be
many such prize scholars."
"You should not expect too much
of your son or daughter, particularly during the freshman year.
The competition is going to be
keen and many students will learn
the meaning of study for the first
time."
No Report C a r d s
He emphasized the fact that the
University would not send grade
reports to the parents hut urged
"that you maintain close contact
with your students.
"Some' students will fall, of
course," ho said, "but It Is the
Job of the University and the parents to provide the support so that
each student does the best Job he
is capable of doing."

Attention
The Student Assistants who spent
their summer working with the
freshmen, were highly enthusiastic about the Conference objectives
and results.
Said Rich Ten Eyck, a Senior,
"The most important objective was
to prepare the Incoming freshmen
in the best way possible for entering the University in September.
This was not social preparation to

Peering out of my 16fty*tower abode out on the new
campus earlier this week, I watched the spectacular
movement of some 1300 freshmen letting their

the formation were approximately 600 males, r e portedly In healthy states of mind and body arid

Now, being of unsound mind and body, what else
does an ASP (that's the name of the newspaper)
sports editor do but wonder how many of those
:> sound specimens will lend themselves to the ause
of bettering State athletics. Having already established the class as "typical,!' the answer is an unfortunate too few, far too few."
Over the past several years Albany has been experiencing a tremendous growth in size, population,
and prestige, all of which has been effected by the
power of SUNYA's by word — transition. We are in
the process of performing a transition from a State
Teachers College to a State University. Academically and architecturally we are succeeding; athletically we are not.

Sports
P R E S I D E N T C O L L I N S G R E E T S freshmen during the President's Reception held Friday Night.
Over 450 freshmen attended the event held in Brubacher Lower Lounge.
Albany's top two runners, Dennis T u t t l e and Tom Robinson,
led the line of runners in a race through Washington Park.
Robinson and Tuttle both graduated, so the team w i l l be banking heavily on returnees Bob Flick and Ken Kirik to head an
intense rebuilding program. Keith Munsey is coach.
NOTICE
Only the administration can correct the aforementioned faults; it could be a long wait. And with most
upperclassmen well rooted in their college c a r e e r s ,
the great hope of Albany's athletic program lies in
the incoming Class of 1969.
What the men of the Clussof '69 can do is examine
the State sports program, evaluate the sports and
what you can offer them and what they can offer you,
and, finally, decide if you can fit a sport into your
academic schedule. If you have any questions about
time budgeting, or if you wonder about your qualifications for making a team, just consult with your
gym instructor. He'll be more than glad to help you.
I can't imagine any freshman not being proud of
being a member of the class that revived State's
fine old tradition in athletics. That revival is long
overdue in coming.
Frosh soccer coach Bill Schieffelln has announced that candidates for his team should either
see him In Page Hall gym or on
the athletic field after 4:00 p.m.

Turnout Smaller
For a good many years now, Albany's incoming
class has been "biggerand better" than the p r e ceding one. And yet, of late, the turnout for athletic
teams has been progressively smaller (percentagewise). Perhaps increased academic pressure or
apprehensions about intercollegiate competition has
served to dissuade high school athletes from taking
up sports in college. Whatever the reasons, the end
result is always the same for school—poorer andpoorer teams.
In part the school is to be blamed. Recruiting
restrictions, lack of administration support, poor
facilities, and general hardships on athletes have
all helped to push State athletics into the back seat
of SUNYA's transitional movement. Oh, granted
we've changed our mascot from a penguin to a great
dane, but nominal changes aren't the kind our athletic system needs.

Richard Thompson, President of
Central Council, said that he hoped
to have these constitutions ratified
by October 15. He said that the two
commission representatives on the
council will act as a medium between
their individual commission and the
council in putting the finishing
touches on the constitution.
Thursday Meetings
Thompson said that the council
will meet every Thursday night
until the work on the constitution
is completed. He said hopefully,
"If the theory behind the government works out, the council will
not have to meet every week because lesser commissions will do
all the work set aside by Senate."
He said that he will try "to
delegate enough authority and r e sponsibility so that members of
the government do not become bored
with their area of study like what
happened with Senate."
Thompson hoped that he could
Instill In eacti level uf the government a desire to Initiate activities.
He said "if they are willing the
government will be put on its feet;
if they do not, then the problems
the government will face will be
worse than Senate."
The new judicial branch of the
The Court will be composed of
four seniors, three juniors and two
sophomores.
When the Supreme Court will take
power, MYSKANIA will lose all its
judicial power and will remain the
guardians of tradition and the freshmen class.
It will also assist and advise any
campus organization that desires its
help and screen nominees for the
Supreme Court.
The lesser courts will be set up
by the individual commission areas.
New Members
Late last spring the twelve additional Central Council members
from the commission areas were
named to the council.
They were Lynn Kurth and Sharon
Teves representing the Commission
for Community Programming, Carol
Zang and Miriam Grossman from
Religious Area Affairs Commission,
Henry Madej and Doug Upham from
Communications
Commission,
Lauren Kurz and Bruce Werner
from Living Area Affairs Commission and Richard Thompson and
Linford White from Commission
for Academic Affairs.
Also appointed to the Council
from the faculty were Dr. Walter
Knotts, Nell Brown, Dr. Ruth
Schmidt, Martha Egelston and Dr.
John Rosenbach.
