Before I begin the intended drivel which will be
incorporated into the text of this column* I shall
begin with a slight bit of maudlin writing involving
beauty which SUPPOSEDLY is artistic or aesthetic.
Isn't the new campus beautiful? No? Well, I think
it is, especially at night. Before the minor deluge we
had, (which kind of grunged things up) I noticed that
Mr. E. D. Stone has designed a campus for us which
is far more spectacular than Draper ever was (which,
by the way always seemed to be in a state of constant
grunginess). Not that I have anything against Draper
you understand; I will as probably many of you will
always feel rather sentimentally, in love with the old
place. However, my feeling begins and ends with
Overgrown Ice Cube Tray
Admittedly, the new campus does have the look of
and overgrown ice cube tray o r perhaps a monastic
cloister. But you must admit (please) that it does
look also like an academic institution (whatever they
look like). Beauty, beauty, I almost forgot. The design
of the lighting in the library resembles a brilliant
poinsetta? Zinnia? Oh well, it is a very pretty example of radial symmetry. At night the lighting from
all of those vertical windows (which are really not
fortress gun slits for Indian attacks as someone
mentioned) cast a golden glow over the proportionate
combination of straight and curved lines.
I think i t ' s pretty; if you don't, ...ah, go look at
a sunset or something.
A Plug from Arts
Welcome Freshmen, how's that for overly used
trivia? Pretty good huh? Now that you have heard
plugs from every other organization on campus,
and you are now on the last page of the ASP, it is
time for a plug from Arts. Join Arts. There that is
it. Seriously, you have come to a school which is
rather proudly active in the field of Arts. The Drama
department produces four major shows a year plus
many smaller productions, all of which are open to
all students. The University Revue is a yearly, student-produced musical which is also open to all.
This year we are producing "Carnival." Any of you

Commissary Fire
Causes No Damage
by Ken B e r n s t o i n
Damage was minor as the New
Campus Commissary experienced
trouble with one of Its large compressor motors shortly after midnight Tuesday morning. As Richard
Fluke of the Commissary explained,
" a piston (of the compressor) let
go, and the lack of compression
caused the, oil to back up."
The smoke seen coming from the
commissary was due to the backedup oil hitting the overheated motor
of the compressor which operates a
freezer, and could belter lie called
a fog. This explanation erased all
the rumors of a full-scale fire or
a possible freon gas leak In the
of the now separably wasted energies in the promotion of a real,
distinct, and enthusiastic spirit of
loyalty to State College."

said, "you will feel the pulse beat

Construction Workers
'Impressed* By Campus
From the administration to bus
drivers and cleaning ladies, the current topic of conversation at the
University Is the eccentricities and
marvels of the new campus. The
men who are actively Involved in
the construction of it are no exception.
An interview with several of the
construction members showed the
general opinion of the campus and
Its facilities to be very favorable.
Too Much Conformity?
Between gulps of hot coffee, Gino
Alessendrini of Schenectady smiled,
" I t ' s beautiful. It looks so permanent—like forever, you know?
Asked if he would enjoy living here
for four years, Mr. Alessendrini
commented, "That's a delicate
question. Maybe the conformity
would be too much, I don't know.
But it's impressive."
John Riegur has worked on the
building project for nearly a year,
and expects to be employed on the
campus for several more months.
He lives in Great Neck, Long Island, and on weekends commutes
to visit his family. With a son and
daughter in college and experience
in helping with,the construction of
four Long Island campus projects,
Mr. Riegur feels well-qualified to
judge the university's design.
Dylan's Music
"It's the most beautiful campus
I've worked on," he stated. "You
have one of the top architects in
the state, and his design is really
a work of art." Mr. Riegur also
commented that the students are
"cooperative" for the inconveniences which they must endure.
Frank Costello, who also lives
on Long Island, said simply, "It's
the best, isn't It? I've heard that
you have one of the top faculties;
now you have a top campus;
Overhearing the comments made
by liis partner, James Fllley of
East Greenbush added ills own from
a scaffold on Livingston tower's
third story. "It's a little too much,"
he objected. "Everything is angular—the quadrangles, archways—
kind of ultra-modern."
Taxpayers Pay
Asked whether the thought of embellishments like $300 flower pots
were disturbing to him, Richard Filarecki paused for a moment in his
work outside of Paine Hall to answer, "Not at all. You have a great
architect—he has to keep up his
prestige, and this is one of his
trademarks. Besides the taxpayers
pay for it." This reply brought a
quick nudge from his co-worker.
"Taxpayers—yeah, that's us!"
One young construction worker,
asked for his views, looked around
at the strolling students and ruefully shook his head. "It's a nice
place to live," he said philosophically, "but I wouldn't want to work

Some students, for instance, have
replaced clock-watching with an
equally distracting hobby: speculation on the amount of time left In

Campus Time Watchers Foiled
By Classrooms Without Clocks
Clock Watching
by Roger Barkin and Igor Koroluk
Recently, there has been a controversy over the implications of
the lyrics of some of our more
popular songs. Probably the most
prominent figure in this situation
is Bob Dylan, Some critics believe
that his "poetics" are narratives
of trips on LSD.
However, it is our feeling that
the interpretation of Dylan is highly
personal and dependent on the individual. Unlike the average rock
and roll tune, his songs force one
to extract the meaning which lies
beneath a symbolic muddle of metaphors, allusions and images.
CAMPUS CONSTRUCTION WORKERS praised the new university design as "impressive," and termed
it the most beautiful education project in the State.
Dylan's music has gone through
a metamorphosis from protest folk
to "folk-rock" to hard rock. In
his latest album, Blonde on Blonde
(Columbia C2141), his arrangements
have become more sophisticated.
Our interpretation of his new style
is relatively simple.
Dylan represents an individual
and his experiences while the accompaniment plays the role of the
tumultuous world moving about him.
While one is trying to appreciate
Dylan, it must be realized that the
music fills in the background and
distracts the listener from the
meaning as all life obscures the individual, while his void, discordant
to some ears, expresses the emotions of the individual.
We must credit Playboy with what
we feel is an excellent description
of Dylan. They describe him as " a
singing James Dean with overtones
of Holden Caul field.
Specifically speaking, our favorite
from Blonde on Blonde Is "4th
Time Around," which has brought
forth the recollection of past experiences.

Parking Problems
A choice between having to park a car
driven to the new campus or taking a bus
might be difficult to make in view, of the
parking situation.
The large parking lot in front of the
Dutch Quadrangle is now almost always
filled to capacity. If an individual parks
his car in one of the distant rows, he
must walk some distance to reach either
the Dutch Quad or the Academic Podium.
If a resident of the Colonial Quad
parks there, it is an even longer walk
to his dormitory. Obviously the parking
lot in front of the Gym is even farther
from the Colonial Quad which is where
these residents are supposed to park.
There is temporary parking in a
wooded area across the university roadway from the Colonial Quad. This, however, is still some distance from the
Academic Podium.
Cars have been parked directly in
front of the Colonial Quad on the area
soon to be landscaped. This plot of land
might be more useful as a parking lot
than decorative shrubbery.
Although the campus is purposely designed to provide an atmosphere conducive to study by preventing vehicular
traffic, this mode of transportation continues to be popular and shouldbe catered
to for the convenience of all involved.
Tradition Destroyed
It appears that MYSKANIA has attempted to abolish one more tradition
on campus. That is the freshman skit.
The two guardians of the Class of 1970
informed the individual who was to be
in charge that they were not organizing
the skit.
The freshman skit will hopefully still
be presented, but only because of the
perseverance of a few conscientious
students who recognize its worth.
This skit helps to organize the freshmen as well as to introduce them to
their fellow class members. There is
no better way to meet people and make
friends than in an extra-curricular activity such as this.
The freshman skit has been a worthwhile tradition at the University, but
it is not being given approval by MYSKANIA, guardians of tradition.
Staff Increases
Any large group of individuals necessitates appointing those who are more
authoritative than others. So it is with
a large university.
Criticisms and defenses have been
made concerning the disadvantage of
the huge community of SUNY at.Albany.
The hiring of a sufficient number of
new faculty members to maintain a
proper faculty-student ration has been
There are, however, so many personnel that no one is quite sure where to
turn for even the most simple task.
Only the most persevering individual
succeeds in reaching his goal, even if
it is something as uncomplicated as
making an appointment with his own
residence hall director.
The accomplishments of a university may be impressive, but an oppressive bureaucracy can hinder and even
destroy the most important sector of
a university-- the people who attend
and teach at the university.

New Theatre Building
Great Improvement
by Ed Lange
In contrast to many articles which are found in
papers these days which concern themselves with
retrospect, I find that there is one subject which cannot be treated in this manner. The subject to which I
am referring is the new theatre building or rather
presently, the construction of it.
Recently, I was exposed to both side and top views
of aforementioned building, and was very much impressed and excited, Though the new building will seat
fewer people than does Page Hall, only 550, there will
be no poor seats in the theatre. This is due to a change
in the style of seating arrangements, and the elimination of the balcony. The style of seating is known as
Continental, which I learned is unbroken by any center
aisles, and utilizes only side aisles. There is also
more leg room between the rows of seats.
Exceptional Lighting System
Another improvement which Page Hall lacks is an
exceptional lighting system. Presently in Page, lighting instruments are mounted on the front edge of the
balcony, with the lighting technicians backstage. In
the new building, there will be lighting positions in
the ceiling, with the technicians in a lighting and control booth which is located in rear of the house. This
offers a much needed improved view of the stage by
the people who run the technical aspects of the shows.
The stage itself has been enlarged, and can be
further mechanically enlarged by an orchestra pit
floor which is able to be elevated to the level of the
stage. There is an improved system of raising and
lowering scenery planned, and a complex intercom
system among the control booth, the dressing rooms,
and the actor's ready room.
Decreased Seating Capacity
In regard to decreasing the seating capacity, it has
been observed that this is beneficial for a number of
First, to accommodate the university
community in a smaller theatre, the number of productions will probably be increased, thus giving students more opportunity to work, perform, and thus
learn. Second, a play depends on a circular response
between audience and actors; a smaller theatre will
be more intimate, and thus each audience member
receives a more personal performance, and his
response is improved. Third, simply because the
size of the theatre is decreased, the audience will
be able to hear and see better.
Thus, we of this university should all be anxiously
awaiting the proposed September 1967 completion
date of the new theatre and its affiliated building,
and we undoubtedly will be.

following the reception and reading

Munseymen Impressive In Opener,
Travel To LeMoyne Invitational
A RayVievo of Sports
^ ^
byRay McCloat
At the ''lat#!r, part of last year we came out with
very optimistic reports about the possible success
for State's fall sports. We felt that the addition of an
outstanding frosh squad to the varsity cross-country
team would make the 1966 harriers a powerful running machine once again. The results of last week's
Montclair meet verify our optimism. But turning to
the soccer field, we find the situation a little different.
When a coach comes out and says that "If we win
four games, the season will be a success," well,
how can we be expected to maintain our high hopes?
But we are still at a loss to explain the team's
ineffective play to date. The squad suffered the loss
of only a handful of seniors last year (4-6) and
yet this year's team looks like they just learned to
play the game this summer.
Coach Joe Garcia claims the team is full of "deficiencies—lack of game experience, poor defensive
setups, lack of transition from defense to offense
and vice-versa, no poise, poor passing, ad infinitum,
including lack of depth." And the coach still says that
his players are "coachable."
The Danes have 13 lettermen— exactly one-half the
entire squad. The booters also have four of the top
players from last year's frosh squad, which enjoyed
only a mediocre record but played outstanding ball
on many occasions (five losses by one point). At
least seven of the returning lettermen have been
playing soocer together since their freshmen year.
What about the schedule? This seems to be the
team's only feasible excuse for being in such a
miserable state. The team has yet to play three
more teams (not counting Quinnipiac) who entered
some form of national playoffs in 1965. How is a
team that has managed only a single goal in four
scrimmages and a regular game (23 goals against)
going to fare against these well-drilled squads?
Armed with these facts, we feel justified in calling
for one of two measures: either State really apply
itself and build a team worthy of this competition or
withdraw from it. We're tired of prayingfor miracles.
It looks like another outstanding year for Albany State's Munseymen this falls, as
the the harriers looked very impressive in their 21-40 drubbing of Montclair State
last Saturday in a new campus meet. The Dane's personable coach, R. Keith Munsey, calls his 1966 squad "potentially, the finest we've ever had. The spirit is tremendous." And these are the words of a coach whose teams have compiled a 32-3
overall record since the sports inception in 1962.

Food Service Faces Problems
In Late Breakfast, Top Service
"As soon as student and regular
help Jobs are filled, Food Service
plans to have a coffee hour immediately following the regular breakfast-—and as soon as possible after that the relnstltutioci of continental breakfast."
Mai Corbiey, Director of the University's Food Service thus expressed the desire of Food Service to offer quicker, more adequate
service to the students.
He explained that Food Service
Itself is not presently satisfied with
the quality of service they are offering; however, bettor service is
now dependent upon the alleviation
of several problems Food Service

The Council also considered several aspects of parking regulations.
Klaus Schnltzer explained that because the county line runs through
the campus the payment of traffic
tickets falls under different departments.
Students receiving tickets while

tickets to the City of Albany; students parked on the other side of
