Subject of Speech
If che Church backs down, it could
mean the end of the so-called deal
between Daniel P. O'Connoll, the
Albany County chairman oi the Democratic party, and the local bishop,
currently Bishop Scully, a man widely regarded as being senile and too
sick to take care of his duties.
The background for the story includes tlie 44 year dominance of tlie
local Democratic organization and
the extremely conservative Catholic
Church of the Albany Diocese.
The newspaper of the local diocese, "The Evangelist," is considered to lie one of the most conservative Catholic papers in America. A recent proof of this was the
complete absence of coverage of the
theological-social discussions at

Broken Relay in Canada Blamed Twelve Vie for Contest
For Northeastern Power Failure
'J' '*i ?,v.: MIS' ^^.^
by Barbara Blodgett
The "black out" that
darkened Albany and most
of the Northeast last week
has been attributed to a
broken relay at a Canadian
power plant on the Niagara
The break in the relay was caused
by excessive overloading of the six
power lilies going into the Sir Adam
Deck plant number 2 in Queenston,
Ontario. Over l.G million ilowatts
were being pumped into this plant
at one time, ami its capacity was
not great enough to meet such a
As the relay broke, the l.G million kilowatts were transferred to
U. S. distributing facilities, causing
a rapid increase of frequency and
a massive surge of power that
could not be handled.
Safety equipment chain reaction
that had been set up to guard against
situations such as the one that followed failed to operate, and the r e result was the complete collapse
of the services of most New England and Southern New York State
power systems.
The problem of starting up again
was enormous. Any generator that
began supplying current would be
immediately overloaded by the vast
network of systems that were standing by, just waiting for power. In
(his case the generator would be
halted at once by Its own built-in
safety device — the circuit breaker.
In order to g?t the systems going,
various sections of the darkened
area had to be isolated and the individual generators brought into line
one by one.
The situation would have warranted the declaration of a state of
national emergency, but It was afraid
that such a step would cause too
much panic. Most citizens accepted
the situation- calmly, and did what
they conld to alleviate its pravity.

squelched, appears to be the most

New York City was perhaps the

No Distinction
Oliver undertook the task of clearing up public misconceptions of the
diplomatic profession. One popular
misconception is that diplomats
from different countries possess
distinct characteristics. Thai Is,
French diplomats are sly, British
diplomats canny and Russian diplomats not to be trusted.
On the contrary said Oliver, "The
rules of the diplomatic profession
are pretty much the same all over
the world." Diplomats from different countries regard themselves
almost as fraternity brothers, united
In the effort of keeping the peace.
While the countries they represent may officially hate each other,
diplomats are often close friends.
This is due partly to the fact that
a diplomat "Is a puppet speaker,
speaking to a shadow audience."

Tower Provides Unique View
Virtually everyone living in Stuyvesant Tower proclaims favorable opinions regarding the view from
moat floors of the tower. Students marvel at the improvement of .-.the'tower compared to Waterbury and
especially the old group houses.
The tower is set up in a series of suites. As one
arrives on a given floor from the elevator or from
the stairs, one is in a centrally located area. At the
two ends of a small hall there are doors leading to
the suites. There are. four suites on each floor.
If a floor is an elevator stop, there is a lounge
and two four man suites and two six man suites. On
the other floors there is no lounge and four six man
Many of the lounges have television sets. The
lounge in the Potter section features the only color

the same campus.
None of the many suites, had the six desks in the
so-called study area. At least two and as many as all
six desks were moved into the "sleeping" rooms by
the students.
The reactions of students who lived in the low rise
new campus residence halls were noted. Several students said that it was much quieter in the tower because of the absence of a central study lounge with
eight surrounding rooms.
Those non-affiliated students who lived on the same
floor as 18 fraternity men shared the views of fraternity men that the situation was not desirable. The
problems were those of lacking common interests.
The independents do feel at home with the Greeks,
and they tend not to know the men a floor or two above
who are also independent.
Many students said that they were hoping the new
library could be opened for study purposes. Their
complaints were based on the absence of comfortable
study areas outside their own suites. The U-lounge is
comfortable to sit in, but the tables are the wrong
height for studying. (These tables were not intended

Freshmen were unable to compare previous college experiences, but their views were fully as vocal
as the upperclassmen.
The Frosh, like the upperclassmen, complained of
the number of hours spent each week on the buses,
i "no matter what any survey shows."
The rooms tended to be crowded because of the
j presence of desks in the sleeping rooms. One frosh
said he thought the unofficial sports program on the
new campus was great.
Students do a good deal of cooking on tTie new campus. Many import food. Cans and boxes of food
could be seen all over. There were several empty
boxes from Andy's pizza.
Col. Walter Tisdale, Assistant to the President
for Plant Planning, at Monday's weekly p r e s s conference stated that a great deal of planning has been
done to provide for student needs and comfort.
He pointed out that his office is eager to hear constructive complaints from the students living in the
tower and in the low-rise residence halls. He stated
that a remarkable job had been done so far.
He said that there have to be rough spots and he
admitted that there have been some mistakes. He said
that the staff of the Tower is almost completely new

available for additional workers if they are needed.
Accidents caused by the slipperiness of the tubs
have been dealt with. Phone calls were made and
letters were written within 24 hours of the first accident report. Rough strips will be placed on the tub
floors to prevent accidents in the future. This is one

In this situation the picture is complicated by the apparent fact that the
local political machine and the Church
are not separate.
The men of Siena are correct in
centering their attention on the Church's
error. The action of the Church was apparently at the request of the city. The
city deserves to be criticized to the
extent of its role. The Church's attitude
is not only inhumane, it is unjust and unchristian.
Fraternity Influence
A fraternity can exist on many levels.
One of these levels is that on which the
group has an effect on an individual outside the group.
The Edward EldredPotter Club,better
known as Potter, has been working on an
individual who is not even technically a
member of the University community.
There is a man who has been seen and
continues to be seen around the campus
with many of the men in Potter. He is,
' or at least was, a high school drop out.
At least partially through the influence
of several members of Potter, he is now
back in high school.
We do not believe that this is any

individual. We recognize its importance
for the individual. We congratulate the

Building Better Bridge
by H a r r y N u c k o l s
John Mureness, a part-time stunt here at State, has been this
riter's frequent partner in many
plicate games In this area. He
s been playing bridge for only a
ery short time, but has already
:quired many of the skills of a
ne player.
This week's hand was played by
lureness a short time ago in a
ame In town. North's first bid
liowed a real club suit and about
n opening bid. South's bid of five
pades was excellent. It was really
sacrifice attempt, his hand Is bad
or defense.
Mureness won the opening lead
n the dummy and played the king
--id ace of trump, exhausting the
•pponents. He then led a low club
from his haJid. West rose with the
ace and returned another diamond.
This almost has to be the correct
•5lay. If South has a singleton club,
he must have five cards in the red
suits, and must give up either a
diamond trick and one or more
hearts, or he must lose two heart
tricks eventually.
The diamond return was trumped
in the Soutli hand and the pressure
on West was applied by playing out
ail the remaining trump from the
South hand. West can afford to pitch
lis diamond and one card in each
I tlie other suits, but when the last
rump is played, he's dead.
before the last trump is played,
lie dummy is down to one heart
mil lour clubs. If West discards n
club on the last spade, the heart is
discarded and the dummy's clubs
are all good.
If, as was the case, West throws
the heart queen, South can still discard a heart from the dummy and
lead his ten of clubs. If West covers, dummy's clubs are good.
If he doesn't (he didn't), a heart
lead puts him in, and he must lead
a club to the dummy. This, as you
probably guessed, Is called a
squeeze play. It is one of the most
difficult plays to recognize, and it
is also a lot of fun to make.

Panel Discusses fVorks of Ayn Rand
Raises Question of Social Welfare
by C y n t h i a Goodman
One ol tlie must fascinating a s pects of the Ayn Rami panel held
November 3rd was the contrast l)etween what was discussed, and what
the panel had intended to discuss.
Despite the valiant efforts of the
panel, the discussion inexorably
moved from a philosophical examination of Objectivism, (u a study of
Ayn's economic, political and social
Dr. Mark Uerger precipitated the
move when he injected into the conversation the question ul social welfare.
"What frustrates me is that we
are talking about prototypes in a
vacuum as if society didn't exist,
I would like Lu see the program
that inevitably follows from the
doctrines that are expressed....
I assume that this position would
feel that sucli things us Social Security, aids to the poor and medical care for the indigent and orphanages are all anathema/.," Dr. Merger proceeded tu establish thai he
fell "an ethical commitment" lo
extend aid lo those who needed 11
out ol respect for them as human
To this, Roger Lee replied
he was opposed to "governmentrun plans ol this nature" and in
answer tu Herger's further query
as to what would be done with those
now receiving government aid, answered that "You would be free to
help them il you wanted to."
One of Roger's primary reasons
seemed to be thai he did nut feel
"need" on the pari ol one individual to l>e sufficient claim on the
rights or possessions of another.
"Rotionol Solf-lntornist"
One of the key phrases used in
the course of the evening was " r a tional self-interest/' a phrase which
Miss Rand uses to describe her
As Lester Greunberg outlined his
position (which he emphasised was
his interpretation of Objectivism
and in no way a 'commitment' of
Miss Rand), the most compelling
reasons for 'charity' would lie not
so much in the individual's need,
.but rathei; In the Individual himself
and the situation.
Roger quoted .Miss Rand as saying in answer to a similar question that she would help a beggar...
il (1) I could afford it, and (2) if I
know nothing evil about the man.'
The question oi the individual's
'obligation' to society, was one ul
tlie major points of contention during the evening.
Mr, Grimes made an important
clarification when he asserted that
he had no objection to helping the
individual become productive and
agreed that continued 'hand-out'assistance was not (he kind of welfare
aid he would approve.
Another major bone ol contention
was over 'laissez-laire'capitalism.
This partieuhir issue was in turn
stressed by the audience in the
questioning period that followed.
Roger Lee had asserted that it
would lie favorable to him to return
to 'total laissez-faire capitalism'
and although he qualified his statement tu the effect that the U. S. had
never seen total laissez-faire, indicated that Hie lath century U.£.
was 'an approach,'
The L a i s s e z - f a i r e
Grimes also pointed out that Miss
Rand's 'new intellectualisin' was
coolly received in academic circles.
The political aspects were immediately picked up by Roger Lee
who stated that Conservatism was
'too concerned with the innate depravity of man.' He also pointed out
that many businessmen would not
approve her philosophy because ot
her attacks on what she calls 'looters.'
Hastening to add that he was not
making accusations against the Director Mr. Grimes quoted, he gave
'subsidy chasers' as an example of
the 'looters' to whom Miss Rand
Lester added that I he 'right wing'
was source of the most bitter attacks on Ayn Rand because then1
religious orientation was in direct
conflict with the program she presents,
Mr. Grimes clarified his interests were not in her position on the
left or right, but rather inher'stand'
in terms of a philosophy of governmental action.
In answer tu a question by Dr.
Berger, Roger explained that his
'ideal' of the laissez-faire capitalist
in American history would be, if
^anyone, J. J. Hill, who, Roger a s serted, was not, like Rockefeller,
a member of the 'aristocracy of
pull' which had sought to 'manipulate government. He denounced the
'recourse to federal aid' ol the 100
other financiers and industrialists.
Dr. Kendall, although not a member of the panel, made his presence
particularly fell in the question and
answer session following the discussion. He repeatedly returned to
the 10th century version of laissezfaire, and challenged its use as an
'ideal' in any sense.
Some of the iess controversial but
brought forward during the discussion involved politics and even a
little philosophy,
Early in the panel, Mr, Grimes
had pointed out the apparent paradox in the fact that businessmen
whom one would expect to 1* supporters of Ayn Hand, rejected her
views as not a 'sound statement of
Back to P h i l o s o p h y
Philosophy had been the starling
point of the panel discussion although it was rapidly obscured.
Roger initially responded to the
question of why Objectivism was
popular by saying that he and others,
wore 'dissatisfied' with the doctrines that wore put forth in the
The trend of philosophy, ho felt,
was toward an assertion that 'man
could know nothing through reason,
yet reason was the only means
di.uiified enough for man to follow,"
objectivism, however, ho a s serted, was a 'relnstillment of the
essential dignity of man,'
Mr, Grimes indicated throughout
tlie discussion that his objections
and those of Dr. Berger, were not
in a philosophy that concerned itself
with man's self-fulfillment, rather
at the program that Ayn Rand presents as a means to self-fulfillment.
It is highly doubtful that the panel
changed any views on the philosophy
of Objectivism, Perhaps It stimulated some serious thought. The
final judgment remains to the future.

The 1965-1966 .State University Theatre season has
been one full of firsts for the department: the first
production in the fifty-first season at State, the first
design by a new technical director, the first fournight run in Page, the first musical under State University Theatre auspices, and, in December, the first
major production to be done in chamber theatre style.
John Cheever's celebrated novel "The Wapshot Scandal," adapted by director Ross Stephen, began r e hearsals in mid-October, and will premiere on December 8.
Chamber Theatre
Regarded at times with some of the wonder usually
reserved for such phenomena as nuclear fission and
childbirth, chamber theatre is neither mysterious nor
difficult to understand: it is, in essence, a technique
for presenting narrative fiction behind a proscenium,
taking full advantage of available theatrical devices
without sacrificing the narrative elements. The work
presented retains the original form, differing only in
that lines (often in the third person) are assigned to
specific individuals.

Central Figure
The central figure in the production becomes the
narrator who has the task of providing background
and transition, allowing the audience to -see and understand the workings of the story — to function as
would the reader. He provides the link which allows
the work to exist on two structural levels, the narrative and the dramatic.
Conceived in the last decade by Dr. Robert Breen
or Northwestern University, chamber theatre received its Albany debut on April 13, 1965, with an
English evening production of D. II. Lawrence's
"Two Bluebirds" and [Catherine Anne Porter's "The
Jilting of Granny Weatherall," also directed by Mr.
As a critical technique for understanding fiction,
chamber theatre makes no attempt to dramatize all
fiction; it seeks solely to embody that criticism by
means of the stage.

Art Council Announces
National Foundation
by Laura Dodofsky
Artist-in residence programs throughout the country will receive booster shots from the new National
Foundation for the Arts and Humanities.
President Johnson has listed grants to schools and
universities to support great artists on the campus as
one of the major tasks of the foundation. The others,
announced at the ceremony on September 29 signing
the foundation bill into law, include the creation of a
national repetory theatre and an American film institute; support of a national opera, a national ballet,
and symphony orchestras; and commissioning new
works of music.
The Foundation consists of two $5 million national
endowments — one for the humanities and one for the
a r t s — and a Federal Council intheArts and Humanities to coordinate their activities. In addition, the new
law provides funds to match private contributions to
the endowments, to give special arts grants to the
states, and to remodel and purchase elementary and
secondary school arts and humanities equipment.
Strengthen Teaching
It also authorizes $500,000 for training institutes to
strengthen the teaching of the arts and humanities in
elementary and secondary schools. Many college and
universities can be expected to host these arts and
humanities institutes, just as they have sponsored language, science, mathematics and history institutes in
the past.
According to the new law, the essential difference
belween the arts and the humanities is that the arts
involve creation, performance, and exhibition; whereas
the humanities center around study. Included among
the arts are music, dance, drama, creative writing,
architecture, painting, sculpture, photography, costume and fashion design, industrial design, film, television, radio and recording. Included in the humanities
are modern and classical languages, linguistics, literature, history, jurisprudence, philosophy, archaelogy, criticism, theory of the arts and humanistic a s pects of the social sciences.
N e e d Support
The Commissions report was presented in June
1964, and concluded that the arts, humanities, and
relevant academic disciplines needed additional m a s s u p p o r t coming largely from tlie federal govern8 j v e
ment. It recommended that an independent National
1 Humanities Foundation similar to the National Science
Science Foundation, be created. Congressman William
S. Moorhead introduced a bill embodying the Commission's recommendation.
All p e r s o n s at the University
After hearings in February and March of this year,
a r e asked to chock C h a r l e s 11. the administration's "consensus" proposal, essenSelf's petition In support of S. 0,
tially the one passed, was formulated. In addition to
the Cold War G. I. Bill.
Tlie petition i s posted on the many university and commission representatives, the
English Annex bulletin hoard.
bill's hearings included testimony by noted performers such as Theodore Blkel and Charlton Heston.
The success of the Humanities commission, whose
20 members included 11 faoulty members of administrators of universities, contrasts sharply with a
commission set up in 1955-56, The main result of its
year-long deliberations was a book published in 1959
will afpem 7)ec. 3 by Howard Mumford Jones, entitled, appropriately,
"One Great Sooiety."

We experienced one of the more rewarding aspects
of athletics last Wednesday night that we feel should
be of interest to every sports fan. The experience we
are referring to is the seasonal sports banquet of the
athletic department, this one being the fall affair.
• At this banquet we saw State sports at their best.
This may sound funny because, who thinks of a banquet as being an intrinsic attribute of athletics? We
now do. We saw the sincerity and pride of coaches
praising their athletes, the humility of the athletes
receiving their awards, and the exuberance with which
the members of-the different teams, applauded their
peers. What more can athletics teach an individual?
Over and over again the coaches told of the hard
work, patience and desire their players put forth
during the year. And yet we never grew tired of it.
We felt proud to be associated with a group of individuals who know what it is to work for something
other than the highly inadequate coverage of a college
newspaper or for the appreciation of fellow students.
We never kidded ourselves into believing this was
ever their moment. •

Emotion Filled
We saw an emotional and tear-filled Joe Garcia bid
a fond farewall to a player whom he had coached for
three years. We felt a lump in our throat, too.
We watched an intense Tom Robinson extol his frosh
runners, using the same terms that coaches used to
describe him with when he was Albany's greatest h a r rier only a year ago.
We saw Bill Schieffelin convey his deep frustration
during the past frosh soccer season. He showed immense pride in his players, and from the skills and
attitudes we know the freshman learned from him
during the season, we can easily call to mind an old
adage: "Achievement is not the primary function of

Central Council Resolution Supports
Siena's Father Bonaventure O^Brien
Shortly after election
day, the news of Father
Bona venture O'Brien's o r ders to remain on campus
at Siena College became
public. Three colleges in
the Albany area have joined
in support of
Father Bonaventure.
The College of Saint Rose made
a statement through its Student Senate favoring the work of Father
Bonaventure and praising the efforts
of the Siena Student Senate in behalf
of their Instructor. In the statement,
the Senate urged the students of St.
Rose to examine the situation, and
urged the faculty to "continue to
provide Christian leadership."
The students of Siena initiated the
action and requested support for
their proposed plans. They had hoped
to organize demonstrations, and had
published a leaflet stating their position and feelings toward the action
of the diocesan hlearchy.
At the Central Council meeting of
November 18, the question of support of the actions of Siena students
and the manner in which we might
extend support was debated. President Thompson stated that he had
been to Siena and had discussed the
hot sausage
Jionburg . . .
ACCORDING TO PRESEASON outlooks, Coach Bob BurlingamVs freshman wrestling team should be equally as good as
la*t year's team, who posted a fine six won three lost record,

Dislike Selections
The sports department should like to voice its dissatisfaction with the AMIA football all-star selections
as made by the team captains last week.
Since it was the captains doing the choosing, we
cannot see how they arrived at some of the choices
they did. There are certain players on the team we
feel don't belong there; discretion rules out naming
these players. However, it is our opinion that such
players as Trinity's Charlie Hickey, Tower's Sal Villa, and Potter's Len Haybrook were among the outstanding players in the league and yet overlooked in
the balloting.
Trinity, in particular, was hard hit; APA, which
was tied by Trinity for second place, had eight men
on the starting team — Trinity had none.
As we said before, since the captains of the teams
did the choosing, we cannot blame ignorance for the
selections. All we can say is that something must be
wrong with the selection system that allowed such a
gros misrepresentation to occur.
University Council voted to
allow Madame Wolkonsky
to remain a full time teacher for this year.
Dr. Rosenbach suggested that the
Council extend support of the principles behind tile action taken, but
not necessarily support the action
itself. Then the question of a public
institution interfering In the Internal
affairs of a religious organization
was debated,
II Is not necessarily the right of
this Institution to question actions
taken by the Catholic Church Administration in this or any other
question. At llio same time the students and faculty members of Central Council felt some statement
should he made on this matter,
The students of Siena had stated
in their leaflet that " a man should
not be removed from social action
since the principles are Christian
in nature. Council agreed on this
point, but disagreed on what the
nature of its statement should be.
Several suggestions were submitted for the Council's approval.
Finally the suggestion of Dean Brown
was accepted as the best possible
wording for our sentiments. The
resolution said both that it approved
of the action of Father O'Brien and
that it supported the spirit of Siena's actions.
She is co-author of a book entitled
"A Dictionary of Russian Roots."
This work is widely considered to be
a definitive study of the structure of
the Russian language.
Madame Wolkonsky has been active in assisting the research of
many scholars of the Russian language. A graduate student currently
studying here claims that he cannot
find a recent book which does not include a lengthy acknowledgment of
thanks to Madame Wolkonsky.
Program D e v e l o p i n g

which the Siena Student Senate has

Drive to Support Foster Child to Begin
For the third year, the ASP is
asking University students to contribute to the support of Its Columbian foster child, Graclala Garcia,
The drive will commence Monday

Graclala Garcia has been the foster child of the ASP siucp January
1904. The ASP is supporting Graclala under the Foster Parents Plan.

The plan differs from the conventional form of charity because
It is more direct and personal. Each
month the sponsor and the child

translated, but both the original and
the translation are sent to the sponsor and the child. Graclala's letters
are published in the ASP. Her father

month. Tills barely meets the cost
of the family's necessities. The
foster child receives $15 a month
to cover the cost of medical care,
household equipment, counseling,
and guidance. Clothing Is sent at
regular intervals.
Since adoption by the ASP, Graclala has grown from an undernourished to a healthy child. The
Plan have not only Improved the
living conditions of the family, but
have also enabled Graclala to r e ceive an education. In her monthly
letters, Graclala is very enthusiastic about school.
Collections for the foster child
will take place in the Peristyles
from 0 a.m. to 3 p.m. Also, contributions may be given to any News
Board member or brought to the
Publications Office, Hoom 5, Brubacher.

teach Russian In the department.
Madame Wolkonsky teaches Russian 139 A and B in the Comparative
