Clear Area for Picnic Sites
by f l l « n Manning
The Faculty-Student Association
jjuf chased some 70 acres of farm
land last semester. This property
will be used for recreational purposes. The exact use of this property Is largely up to the students.
Several students have already
started working on this new land
to prepare It for future student use.
During this past summer a student
crew Jielpe'd to change this meadow
and woodland into suitable land) for
picnics, excursions, and some outdoor sports.
Some woodland plots have been
cleared of excess underbrush. These
plots which are separated by about
one hundred feet of woods will be
made Into more picnic areas. Trails
win link these areas and the main
The students did not do any carpentry work on the farmhouse because carpenters were hired to do
this task. The carpenters are now
repairing the roof of the farmhouse.
Once this job Is finished, the work

Poor Planning
A time of transition is, in theory, a
time of planning. Unfortunately this is
nqt always the same. The library is an
example of good planning. The change
over to the Library of Congress system
of cataloging books comes at a good
time. To wait until we are on the new
campus would be to compound the job
and the confusion.
The move of Financial Aids from
Draper to the Air Force ROTC is an
example of bungling.
The situation of their new offices is
remote from this campus and especially
remote from the people who need their
services the most. The average person
needing financial aid is less likely to
have a car than an average student.
The reason or reasons for the move
are, no doubt, the usual series of generalizations. We would like to hear an
excuse for the debacle from whoever
let this happen.
Sales Tax
If there is one issue that will dominate the November election, it will be
the popularity of the new state sales tax.
This tax is obviously the result of a
deal between New York City's outgoing
mayor and New York's ever-smiling,
still blintz-eating, governor.
The sales tax is wildly inconsistent.
Text books, as we now know, are taxable; while magazines are not. No industry is satisfied with the definition of
taxable consumable supplies and the definition of non-taxable construction or
improvement materials. There are many
other examples.
We feel the greatest injustice is being
done to the person collecting and billing
the tax. Every merchant dealing with
taxable goods is now a New York State
tax collector. Each mustspendcountless
hours working for Nelson A. Rockefeller
without the benefit of the minimum wage.
The state itself is unsure as to what it
means by taxable and non-taxable items.
The State Tax Department cannot answer
many of the questions it is being asked.
The ASP would like to know if we have
to bill our advertisers with the sales tax
We were exempt from the federal excise tax because we were considered an
educational institution. Whether the state
will let us continue in this status is still
up in the air.
We'd like to find out. It may mean a
major change in our budget if we must
charge the tax. If we end up having to
pay the tax, things could change radically.
We are not the only organization which
is unsure of its status regarding the tax.
Business in Albany and the rest of the
state often find themselves in the position we are in.
We feel that since the state has been
unable to do a competent job of extending this tax the state should adopt a method of taxation which it can handle, without drafting every merchant into a special army of Rooky's tax collectors.

one must become inbued with the
compassion that makes us weep

Ill-treated. It our own souls are
precious to us, so too are the souls
of our brothers everywhere in the
world. If we yearn for our own
recognition and cherish our own
dignity, we can do no lass for
those less fortunate than ourselves.
Education helps us towards this
attitude and makes us simultaneously world-conscious and individual-conscious.
The philosophy the university
adopts in its relationship with individual students has great effect
upon whether or not they will accept and champion such an attitude.
When the university feels keenly
the need to consider the student as
an individual no matter how many
times he is multiplied, then the
latter feels that same concern for
those around him and elsewhere.
When the university uses rules and
regulations Inflexibly and without
regard for the human equation, then
the student even with his occasional
rebellions against such edicts will
learn the selfsame habits of Inflexibility. He will tend to think in terms
of groups or conglomerations or
associations that can be classified
and categorized rather than of persons, each with his individual prerogatives and responsibilities, and,
most of all, each with a dignity of
self that calls for preservation and
nurture. This is an Important lesson
for the maturing student and the

Ely Landau's The Pawnbroker'
Conveys Message for
by Douglas Rathgeb
In the motion picture world of today, a world of bedroom farce and
cheap thrills, of James Bond, the
Beatles, arid Doris Day', It is a rare
occasion Indeed, when a film such
as Ely Landau's "The Pawnbroker"
graces the motion picture screen,
as testament to the fact that to a
small, brave band of film makers,
the movie Is not only an art form,
but also. an Important media for
serious commentary on our time.
"The Pawnbroker" Is a magnificent example of this rare breed
of film — one that is meant not to
tickle the senses, but to numb them;
not just to touch the nerves, but to
fray them. Its plot is at once so
simple, and yet so very deep —
the story of a man who survives
one hell only to be caught in another
of his own making.
Aspholt Jungle
The story concerns a Jewish
pawnbroker, survivor of a German
concentration camp, who makes his
place of business In a little cage
of a pawnshop In New York's Spanish
Harlem, in the heart of the asphalt
jungle. The pawnbroker, played brilliantly by Rod Stoiger, has succeeded, so he thinks, in casting all
feeling and emotion from his life.
Making money in his little pawnshop
is all he lives for. and, as he says
to his young Puerto Mean helper
with a vengeance, "Next to the speed
of light, which Einstein said was the
only absolute In the universe, I
rate money."
No Emotion
But though the man has erased
emotion from his life, he cannot
erase the memory of what befell
him twenty-five years before —
when he saw his young son suffocate in a Nazi death train; when
he saw his sister's husband caught
and Hied by German hounds as he
tried to scale the barbed wire of
the concentration camp fence; and
when a German soldier thrust his
head through a window so he could
watch an officer strip off his wife's
Now, on the twenty-fifth anniversary of that ordeal, the memories come back to haunt him, refusing to let him Isolate himself
from reality. On the surface, though,
he still puts up a good front to
those who know or meet him. To
everyone he looks as unfeeling as
the sea. A social worker (Geraldine
Fitzgerald) tries to befriend him
only to be told that she is an unwelcome intruder into his life; the
Puerto Hican boy seeks his friendship and guidance but receives only
abuse for his trouble; his customers,
an odd assortment of derelicts, find
that their pleas for pity fall on deaf
/S.RTS OV B o o k s
! „9
Root of Agony
But slowly, subtly, as the picture
progresses,the pawnbroker's transition back from emotional Isolation
takes place, and, by means of beautifully filmed quickie flashbacks, we
are able to see the root of his
agony — a memory that has made
him despise, all mankind as animalistic and evil. Yet the more.he
tries to forget his past, the more
it refuses to be forgotten, and the
more he finds remindful analogies,
in the present — a young woman
tries to pawn a ring, and his eyes
see a German soldier plucking the
rings from the fingers of doomed
Jews; he rides in the subway, and
he sees a crowded boxcar carrying
his family to the concentration camp;
a Negro prostitute bares her chest
to him to get a better price for a hock
piece, and he sees a German officer
standing over his naked wife in a
back room.
Milestone In Cinema
Filmed In the streets of New
York by director Sidney Lumet,
"The Pawnbroker" is a milestone
in American cinema. It is a literate, sensitive, angry and frightening excursion into one man's private hell. It is among that small
number of American films that has
something to say, and says it with
truth and dignity.
It is not entertaining because it
does not choose to entertain, and
it Is not pretentious because it
seeks to present its subject as
starkly as it should be presented.
Artistically and technically it is
one of the most important films of
this or any year.

This year, in addition to the four dramatic productions and the one-act plays whichlhe department
has traditionally presented, State University Theatre
has enlarged its program to include a musical, "Stop
the World, I Want to GetOff" and two chamber theatre
productions. The musical will be directed by Martin
Mann, who worked with Children's Theatre last year
and directed the very successful "Red Shoes." Mr.
Ross Stephen, who directed a chamber theatre pror
duction last year, will direct two more this year.
Such an expansion in programming will necessitate
added student participation in all areas of production.
Freshman Skit
The theatre department has always encouraged students of all departments to pursue whatever interest
they may have in the theatre. This year a special effort has been made to acquaint the freshmen with the
theatre department and its activities on this campus.
In addition to newsletters and pamphlets introducing
the faculty and proposed year's program, the Dramatics Council has taken a novel step in orienting the
freshmen to the field of drama. The members of
Dramatics Council working with MYSKANIA will organize a freshman skit. The skit will be written and
produced by the freshman class and presented on
Parents Day Week-End. Through this program freshmen will meet members of the faculty and Dramatics
Council; they will become acquainted with the many
facets of theatre production and — perhaps — will
find themselves to be an unfound "Hollywood star!!"

A poor James Bond novel Is about
as subtle as the Jolly Green Giant
wduld be in Lllliput. "The Man With
the Golden Gun," Ian Fleming's last
saga of the adventures of 00? Is,
unfortunately, not a very good way
to remember Bond.
The action is picked up from the
preceding novel, "You Only Live
Twice" wherein Bond was left
amidst flame and destruction after
finally killing Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
In TMWTGG we learn that Bond was
presumed dead (his obituary appeared In the Times and he was
considered a national hero) but is,
In reality, still Indestructible.
Russian Ally
He was picked up by some Russian
agents who transformed him Into an
ally and packed him off to England
to eradicate M. His attempts fail
and, in order to regain his status,
is assigned to assassinate Scaramauga, a gunman who lias worked
for Fidel Castro. The deed is accomplished by the end of the book
but not before Fleming has put Bond
through the usual amount of close
One of the major faults of the
book Is that there Is no island
(the sotting is Jamaica) beauty to
soothe Bond over the rough spots
of his adventure. Mary Goodnight,
his old secretary, is the female
protagonist In the book but she is
not a James Bond girl, i.e., she
is not an abnormal human being
who gets back in step with humanity
after encountering Bond. Instead she
is an efficient secretary, a good
conversationalist, a willing listener,
but not a suitable companion for the
likes of our hero.

are the first varsity soccer and cross-country encounters and the kickoff of the AMIA football program.

will be relying largely upon relatively untried p e r sonnel and that alone is enough to make any prediction completely hypothetical. Coaches Munsey and

Seriously, the pre-season indications all point toward
a highly successful and very rewarding season for the
AMIA football league, and no organization deserves it
more. It is our sincere hope that the officers selected
in the AMIA election next Wednesday will take full
advantage of the participants'exuberance, willingness,

lead to a successful year, which indeed would be an
