With over thirty men out for coach Keith Munsey's
frosh team, we do not expect this lack of depth to continue for too long. But that's at least a season away.
This afternoon's game with Oswego and tomorrow's
contest with Potsdam will be a good indication of how
sorely the team's lack of depth will hurt the Danes.
Stop by the field today or tomorrow and see if we're
not right in being so pessimistic. We'll be there,
hoping we're wrong.

It has oft been said — but ne'er so well expressed—
that the first sure sign of spring is the appearance of
the neighborhood baseball game. We accept this statement with a certain amount of resignation, for while
everyone greets spring with renewed alacrity, we
sports fans can only greet the Great Dane baseball
team with greatly tempered enthusiasm.
The diamondmen begin the year with 14 men on the
squad. Twelve men is far more adequate for a basketball team that has to fill only five positions. A baseball
team should have at least three extra pitchers, a r e serve catcher, a few utility infielders, and a couple of
outfielders" who can fill in other spots as well. With a
few injuries, coach Burlingame will be scanning the
bleachers for help.
We are totally sympathetic toward the baseball team
in its effort to win even a handful of games. Every win
the team achieves is indeed a credit to the desire of
the diamondmen.
But over a season with twenty games crowded into
eight weeks, a team with only three reserves on hand
is in deep trouble right off the bat. Pinch-hitting will
be non-existent, and can you imagine the poor pitcher
who is being clobbered around the park, fully aware of
the fact that he is the last remaining pitcher the coach
can use? Holy earned-run-average!!
This year's team is comprised of several talented
regulars that form a small, yet solid, nucleus for the
Danes. Pep Pizzillo, Jay Moore, Andy Christian, Bill
Ingino, and Jim Nass were important parts of last
year's team that enjoyed a mildly successful season.
Coupled with certain standout members'of last year's
frosh team, the Danes do have a fine starting team
going for them. But that's all.

Living Affairs Commiision
During the discussion on the budget for Living Area Affairs Commission Eleanor Dlenor requested
that $150 be added for a newsletter. She stated that a lack of
communication in the living areas
made such a newsletter necessary.
It would contain information of who
the representatives were and also
used to contact commuters. The
addition was approved.
There was also discussion on the
allocation of funds to the quads for
special events. The argument was
that it was not needed because
there had never been such an allotment to the quads before. This
money, however, remained in the
budget and the total Living Area
budget came to $1832.
Discussion on the budget for Communications Commission Included
the fact that fewer Campus Viewpoints will be published next year.
They will be distributed only to
freshmen, campus leaders and
transfer students. The total approved for communications was

We congratulate Central Council for disposing of

the past, passage of budgets has taken several meetings with much consideration devoted to the relative
merits of each request and the approximate interest or
desire for the activity among Student Association. This
year Central Council has dispensed with such careful
but time-consuming considerations.
For example, in the consideration of the twenty
Community Programming budgets totaling $46,977.50,
which could be used as a model of efficiency, discussion was limited to forty-five minutes. When it became
apparent that only Music Council's budget ($.696,50), of
these twenty, would be discussed within this time limit,
Central Council was still able to maintain its pinnacle
of efficiency by passing all of the other budgets in
Community Programming without discussing each separately.
Also under Community Programming Commission
is Debate Council. Its budget line for trips, $2400, is
not restricted. However, Biology Club must inform
Finance Committee as to how it plans to spend its

Out of a total budget of $1590 for Living Area Affairs Commission, $1205 was devoted to beer parties

only received $242, although they comprise about onethird of the total school population and are given

Twenty students at State are undergoing a strange metamorphosis
these days - from student to tutor
to beggar to salesman. The transformation of these Newman Association members is on behalf of
poor children from the South End
of Albany, who are the State students' tutees.
For these children and their futures, the college students have
spent one night each week the whole
year tutoring them on Catharine
Street at the street's Civic Association Center. Now the students
have run a clothing drive among
their fellow, students to be given to
the poor.
Sell Clothing
Then came the idea to sell these
next-to-new articles of clothing at
a nominal fee and use the proceeds
for the tutees In some way.
Finally the thought that the money
should go to the children in an organized and enduring way, that is
through the Summer Community Organization for Recreation and Education, SCORE '66. The Community Organizations of the newlyformed lederation are sponsoring
SCORE '66.
The sale will be held at Trinity
Institute, 19 Trinity Place on Saturday, April 23 all day.
Joe Paulson, chairman of the project and coordinator of the Newman
Tutorial views the sale as "serving
a two-fold purpose: first, to get good
clothes to the poor at a reasonable
price and second, to raise money (or

help with developing academic
The keynotes "individualization"
and "Informality" will characterize the camp's educational approach.
The camp situation will avoid
identification with formal schooling,
providing freedom for the child to
develop his educational abilities.
Small classes with maxjmum individual help from volunteer tutors
will enable the program to accomplish this end.

aspet of the program as "the development of the children's social and
creative abilities through a coordinated recreational and arts and

Camp's Expectations
This project for "66 will approximate, but surpass the one of similar dimensions held last summer.

To the Editor:
In the March 29 ASP Robert Cutty
reviewed Steve Allen's latest book,
"Letter to a Conservative." I have
not yet read It myself, though I am
familiar with Allen's political views
and activities. The observations
which I wish to make pertain not to
the content of this publication, but
rather to Mr. Cutty's manner of
reviewing it.
(1) Though Mr. Cutty's unmitigated contempt for this book was
obvious, I was unable to unearth one
clearly expressed criticism of It.
When I though I had an inkling of
what Mr. Cutty was trying to say, I
looked in vain for an example from
Allen's work to elucidate the reviewer's objections. Lest I be guilty
of the same sort of negligence, I
submit as an example of Mr. Cutty's
prose the following: "While A'llen
uses semantics, logic, and common
sense to support Liberal thesis, he
piously insists that even Liberalism
is such a broad category that it may
contain within Its gates enough lunatics with which to confront the radical right and this hlsownphllosophy
of Moderate Liberalism...Is truly a
"elite." But what did he write? Was
It Jazz? (I* the sky red?) No. He
used tile so-called Jazz Idiom. Rhap- !
aody starts out with a clarinet playing a run and ending In a gllssando
that was typical (?) of Jazz. He
made much use, of so-called Jazz
chord progressions end "blue"
notes. Does that make It Jazz?
Again, not It still lacked the one
thing that Is needed to make jazz
Jazz. There is no room for improvisation and no room for the players
to show their own feelings about the
piece. It is still acomposer'splece.
That is still the thing that separatee
jazz from all other types of music.
I can play a song like "Witchcraft,"
you can play It, Miles, Dizzy, Brubeck, the MJQ, even Al Hlrt (ugh)
can play it. Each time it's a differ- '
ent song played a different way.
THAT'S jazz.

Let's talk about Gershwin and

but you are wrong. Gershwin aid

When the National Shakespeare Company arrives on May 10 for Its
three week festival at the Saratoga Spa Theatre, It will be coming in from
a thirty-two week string of performances that has carried the troupe from

Incompatible Marriage
Remains Popular Theme

Sign-up sheets will be available in the
Wilfrid Sheed. Square's Progress. Hew York: Farrar, Slruus & Giroux. 1965.
"Square's Progress Is yet another approach to a theme that was
dealt with by T. S. Eliot In "The Cocktail Party" and by Saul Bellow in
"Herzog": the problem of marriage between two fundamentally incompatible people. Yet "Square's Progress' deals with the issue in a more
satisfying way than "Herzog," primarily because the narrator (like
Eliot) keeps his attention focused on the basic problem, the incompatibility,
and the reasons for It; whereas Bellow gives us only a loaded and onesided picture of the same situation,
The "Square" In this novel Is the husband, Fred Cope, a big, kindly,
bumbling Junior executive addicted to his television set, newspapers, and
neighborhood parties In Bloodbury, the fashionable New Jersey suburb
where he lives with his wife, Alison. She has an inchoate desire to get more
out of life than a round of polite parties, yet she Is neither talented nor
profound. Her Inability to penetrate the impassive wall Fred has erected
against her (to him) boring attempts at conversation has turned her into a
nagging shrew. In other words, the two "don't communicate."
This lack of communication causes a one-year separation. Before
going to sleep after a party which has left Fred tiddly and drowsy, Alison
Informs lilin that she Is going to leave tor a few days to think things over.
She tells him where she Is going, Fred grunts assent, and when he wakes
up the next morning she Is gone. But he cannot remember their conversation of the night before and does not know how to find her. Each goes
his own way for a year of self-exploration, Fred Impulsively throws up
his Job and drifts off to Spain for a stay among a repulsive set of expatriate marijuana-smoking beatniks, a group he conscientiously cultivates in an effort to become more hip. Alison, meanwhile, returns to her
home town, Stapleton, Pennsylvania, where people are "real," But she
views them now with the Jaundiced eye of greater experience, More Importantly, both Fred and Alison face up to certain deficiencies In themselves, Eventually, each returns to Bloodbury; and eventually, they meet.
But they are able now to, act toward each other with more honesty. This
honesty almost leads them Into a divorce; ultimately, however, tliey
blunder Into a bittersweet reconciliation very similar to the one between
the Chamberlaynes at the end of "The Cocktail Party."
Sheed's style Is brilliant, The title, of course, echoes "Pilgrim's
Progress" and "The. Rake's Progress," The nineteenth century is not
left out, either; the first page Or two Is a magnificent evocation of the
brilliant opening paragraphs of «Bleak House." Lest we miss the point,
it is underlined; "Mud along the Thames, mud in the Chancery
Mud In the Jersey flats."
This Is an acute novel. Neither of the major characters is without
flaw. Yet the narrator has the compassion for both which can result only
from sympathy and, more Importantly, understanding,
