One Bttsy Hoop Week Down,

this writing a &<=<=.I.I.IB., ..«,u<ycre 2-2 won-lost record.
The realization that these two losses came at the hands
of two quite powerful teams, Williams arid Buffalo makes
It clear the word mediocre is quite out of place. Furthermore, the loss to Williams was a cliffhanger, while the'
drubbing given by Buffalo saw our hoopers put themselves
out of the game in the first half, only to show their true
merit by playing even with the Bulls In the second half.
There is no doubt that the '67-68 version of the Sauersmen is a very gifted squad of ballplayers.
The game this Saturday against Central Connecticut
should be another close ballgame. The Cardinal McCloskey Gym should be packed once again as the visitors always bring with them a fine squad. Perhaps a
key to the success of our basketball team will be the
play of center Scott Price. Scott's play is almost always
good, but the amount of time Price gets to play often
varies, according to his foul situation. The victory
over Plattsburgh demonstrates the basis for my reasoning that Price is the key to our basketball success.
In this same Price played an obviously more cautious
ballgame and consequently never entered into foul trouble.
Yet Scott Price garnered 23 rebounds to keep the Danes
in charge in the latter part of the game. Price played
as much as Doc needed him, played cautiously, and dominated the boards. That Is the reason Plattsburgh was
defeated. Without Price, a dominating rebounder is
lacking although Rich Marglson, Larry Marcus, and
Jim Caverly have all shown an ability to chip in with
the backboard chores. Price is needed to get the fastbreak off in time. Price's stature is such that when he
stands still, he Is an excellent pick. Price's scoring
ability should not be underestimated either. .
Tomorrow night fans will see a good ballgame. The
play of the center from Clifton Springs could be the key
factor in this and all Albany games. Fouls could determine the outcome. Scott always plays well, but how much
time will he get to play?

Grapplers Buried,
Oneonta On Top
by Tom Nixon
In their first dual meet of
the season, theAlbanyState grapplers lost to the Oneonta Red
Dragons by a score of 274,
this past Saturday. The Great
Danes were able to record only
victory and a draw. In recording 27 points, Oneonta scored
five decisions, all of which, but
one, were decided by more than
two points, and two pins.
Watts Only Winner
Eric Watts, who was the only
winner for Albany In their Invitational two weeks ago, again was
the only victor for the grapplers.
Wrestling In the 123-pound division, Watts recorded a 12 to
2 decision over Tim O'Hara.
Oneonta then went on to win
the next seven weight classes
before Albany was able to register another score.
Bill Schempp opened up the
scoring for Oneonta by registering an 8-3 decision over Gary
Smagalski In the 130-pound division. In the 137-pound division, Bill Clark of Albany lost
a 4-2 decision to Jay Moore.
Wrestling for Albany In the
145 - pound division was Craig
Springer who wrestled most of
last year, and In the Invitational
this year In the 152-pound spot,
Despite Ills drop of a weight class,
Springer dropped an 11-6 decision as he suffered five takedowns at the hands of Dan D'Ambolse of Oneonta,
Frank Berry, who also uropped a weight class so that he could
wrestle In the 132-pound division,
lost to Bob Anderson by a score
of 13-3, Both Berry and Springer seemed to be lacking stamina
as a result of their heavy workouts In order to make the lower
weight classes.
Oneonta registered pins in both
the 160 and 167-pound spots as
Bryan Lambe pinned Francis
Weal, who was tilling the spot
left open by Berry, In 6:46, and
Don DeLuca pinned Marshall
Gladstone in 3|46.
In the 177-pound class, Roger
Gorham of Albany lost a 9-3 decision to Gary Lehr.
Roger Saul, wrestling for only
the second time, gained the only
other points for Albany as he
was able to wrestle George Miller to a 9-9 draw. Saul, who Just
started wrestling this year Is
showing great promise and looks
as if he may register some unexpected victories for the Great
Danes this year.
The Great Danes wrestle their
next four matches away before
they return on February 10th

At Buffalo's Clark Gym, the
Bulls got off to a fast start and
were never headed. The closest
Albany got was six points, 2115, midway through the first
half. However, In the end the talent and strength of the Bulls was
too much for the Danes to overcome. Price led all Dane scorers with 19 as Marglson chipped

The Utlca game was no contest
as seven Albany men hit for
double figures. The purple and

Research Grant
Policy Discussed
By Pres. Collins
President Evan R. Collins commented on the University policy
concerning private and government research grants offered to
the University at Monday's President's Conference with students.
He stated that according to
the present policy the University
will accept no contracts whose
findings are of such a nature as
to be classified.
He stated that this policy was
In accord with a statement, drawn
up last January by the Faculty
Senate Committee on Faculty Research, which stipulates that any
funded research involving faculty
shall carry the stipulations that
all findings can be published.
Collins also referred to misunderstanding over the University's part in Project Themis, a
project designed to "developnew
centers of excellence to provide
new opportunities for research
in the hard sciences."
He stated that all Themis research Is to be unclassified material "so that the results may
be published," thereby meeting
the present University standards.
The University Is presently
working on eleven projects of
Operation Themis, mainly In the
field of atmospheric science.
An announcement was also
made of a new policy statement
handed down by the University
Committee to Draft the University Alcohol Policy dated January 4, 1966.
The policy concerns the sale
and service of alcohol In the Patroon Room, the Rathskelter, and
at the Mohawk and Dlpplklll properties. (See Page 11.)
Vice President of Stude"nt Affairs Clifton C. Thorne also announced the formulation of a new
Kosher food plan by the Student
Affairs Committee In cooperation with the Hlllel Society (see
also page 0 for policy.)
Questions were raised as to
the new policy of running the
last buses at 12 midnight on
a weekly basis. Collins commented that It was originally Intended that the head of the Transportation Service would revise
the bus schedule In order to
provide more buses at prime

Council Adopts New
Student Tax Policy
by Vic Looper
Central Council approved a
new Student Tax Policy and again
acted on the question of budgeting of groups advocating a specific partisan political or religious
viewpoint at their Dec, 14 meeting.
The Student Tax Policy, passed by a near unamlous 24-0-2
vote, Includes among Its major
changes the provision that "the
Student Tax card cannot be transferred to or used by another student." In order to purchase a
ticket or obtain a publication,
a student will have to show both
Ms ID and his Student Tax card.
Under this provision, students
purchasing tickets for dated
events with tax cards will have to
bring their dates with them to
pick up tickets. Buffalo alsouses

have decided to assume the responsibility for making our campus aware of the draft options
available In addition to those recommended at the military recruiting desk.
These teachers were disturbed to discover that there Is no
place In our University community where a student can get detailed Information or counseling to make an Informed decision
concerning his draft options.
The Teachers Draft Counseling Committee recognizes that
many of our young men question whether or not they can,
as a matter of conscience, serve
as soldiers In the Vietnam war,
and further, that, under conditions Imposed by the draft law,
the choice of service, alternate
service, or non-service represents, for many, a serious
choice about life goals, and for
others, a far reaching personal
The Committee takes the position, therefore, that, as teachers and responsible members of
the adacemld community, we
must help such young men obtain information on all alternatives and examine their own
feelings to the end that they
arrive at a rational and emotionally satisfactory devlslon
about their role, If any, In the
Vietnam war.
The group agreed to begin
to train themselves as draft counselors. Included In this committee are: Warder Cadbury, Gloria
DeSole, Peter Larrlck, Dr.
Thomson H. Llttlefleld, Frank
Snow and Harry Staley with John
Hellly as Its chairman.
About forty faculty members
met Monday, December 18thwith
local attorney Margrethe Powers whose Information on
procedures; for counseling conscientlous objectors, It was
felt, would be of aid to the potentlal counselors.
Powers stated that the limits
of the law concerning draft counselors allows only "The giving of
factual Information. There Is no
legal opposition to counseling,"
except for "counseling to disobey
the law,"
When asked what the best time
to apply for a CO deferment Is
for those whose present classification Is 2S, she replied that
they would have to write their
local boards as soon as their
minds are clear. She said that
under the present interpretation
of the law a boy who has not seen
other wars and opposes only this
war but not necessarily future
or past wars would not qualify
for a CO deferment.
Concerning the question asked
on form 150 (form for conscientious objectors) -Do you believe
in a Supreme Being?, Powers
stated that if you do not know
if you believe, check yes. She
suggested writing
"everything In duplicate, make
copies and send everything by
registered mail.
"Fill out the form adequately, have witnesses available for
any hearings. The board may refuse to listen to them, make a
record." Having a record of
everything Involved in the appeal Is, Powers Indicated,
of great importance. The appeal
candidate must have a thick
enough file In support of his case.
"The poorest time to appeal Is
after you receive the Induction
notice." If the candidate appeals
at this time, Powers said, he
would have to show that "something beyond his control changed
his mind after notification."
The faculty members were told
that It Is their "duty to assure
yourselves you are counseling
someone who really wants to do
this. You can't (under the law)
counsel them (students) to go to
Canada or break the law. You
are here and respected, lending your moral force" as teachers to counseling.
Asked how government officials would find out If counselors advised against the law,
Powers answered that the boy
"might get caught on his way to
Canada and say something, he
might be disturbed, or his parents might say something. As
counselors you are public and
acknowledged; your name would
be on references.
"The CO applicant must be
reasonable. One of the *ues-
tlons that may be asked (of the
applicant) Is Do you believe in
a police force? He must know
In his own mind the difference
between police and the military,
war and violence; he must have
his answers thought out."
During the time between the
appeal and the hearing the CO
candidate, advised Powers,
should get as much Into his file
In support of his case as he possibly can. "If you get a militarist to vouch for your sincerity" it would be a great help.
One question asked of the applicant may be whether he had
ever done anything else on the
grounds of conscience. "If he
march d on Washington or Joined any Peace Vigils, get It on
file. The Draft Board will have
to make a case against you"
and with this support on file
It will make It harder for them
to win their case.
Peter Pollack, editor of the
Albany Liberator, has been Issued a CO classification; he was
asked some questions by the
group of faculty members. Pollack said he was asked by officials If he would have fought
during World War n.
His answer was that he "could
not make Judgments on the actions
of nations In historical setting."
He told his interviewers that
he "could not go back and say
what he would do under different circumstances. His views,
he told the appeal board, had

Mme. Wolkonsky
Granted Waiver
Madame Catherine Wolkonsky,
professor of Russian language
and comparative literature at
the University, again has been
granted an extension of waiver
of the mandatory retirement provision by the Board of Trustees
of State University of New York.
The action permits an additional year of academic service
by Madame Wolkonsky who is
72. The noted authority on the
Russian language has been granted three waivers of the provision
upon the recommendation of
President Evan R. Collins.
Her current waiver expires
next June. Formerly chairman
of the Russian department at Vassar College, she came to the
University four years ago.
The request for her continued
service noted that Madame Wolkonsky Is "still the mainstay of
the Russian part of the department of Germanic and Slavic languages and literatures."
Madame Wolkonany Is coauthor of the book, "A Dictionary of Russian Roots." The work
Is widely considered to be a
definitive study of the structure of the Russian language.
Ecological Researchers
To Study Whiteface Mt.
Dr. Jon T. Scott, professor of
earth and atmospheric sclonces
at the University, and Dr. J.
Gary Holway, professor of
science at Oneonta State and an
alumni of the University, will
direct an extensive study of the
vegetation, soil, and microclimate of Whiteface Mountain in
the Adlrondacks.
The research project entitled
"Vegetation - Environment Relations at Whiteface Mountain In
the Adlrondacks" will yield Information for forest management
and conservation practices In the
Adirondack Forest Preserve.
Dr. Scott Is an atmospheric
sclenUst with particular Interest
In ecological studies, the relation of vegetation to the environment. Dr. Holway, a botanical
specialist In ecology, will research mainly In the area of
vegotatlonal structure.
The two - year Investigation
seeks new statistical and mathematical techniques for relating
measures of vegetation to quantitative environmental measurements. The team will also describe the vegetation In an area
which has not been tifAdled by
modern ecological methods.
The study will attempt to obtain more Information on a controversy In the field of ecology
dealing with the structure of vegetation. Research will center
around the question, "Does vegetation consist of discrete units
or Is it essentially continuous?"
While their conclusions are
highly tentative, Drs. Holway and
Scott speculate that the truth
lies somewhere between the two
positions. The results, to date,
show features of both the ecological hypotheses.
Smith On Council
Barbara Smith, a Junior has
been elected to Central Council from Colonial Quad. Only
about CO students voted in the

of fraudulent votes the elections

Sig Phi Sig Mixer Tonight,
Proceeds for Greek Week
by Barb Grossman
Greek Week entertainment have
not been made yet. The Faculty Student Association has
not met, and, therefore, the
Greeks have not received money
from them.
The money expected from
various beer companies has also
not come through. Consequently,
money is still needed for the beer
party, the concert, and the guest
Co-chairmen Linda Klein and
George Llebowitz have been

made the planning difficult.
However, preparations for

as the Olympics, the Follies, and
the Open House are going well.
There may be some hope yet
In obtaining funds soon enough

Dr. Paul Bacquet, visiting professor from the Sorbonne, spoke

His discussion centered around
"An American Student in Paris"
and dealt with many Interesting
The University of Paris, the
Sorbonne, is the oldest university
of Its kind,in Europe. It offers
an almost unlimited amount of
courses and excellent professors, and nearly every foreign
language. Founded In 1257 by
Robert de Sorbon, It was originally a college for men who had
achieved the equivalent of a
Master of Arts degree, and who
wished to continue their study in
the field of theology. Even at this
time it was considered a
European center, and not merely
a French school, with a diversity
of students and professors. Situated In the center of the commercial district, the university
bears the mark of belonging not
only to the city of Paris but also
the world. Dr. Bacquet added that
It has been called "the famous
monster which must be tamed."
Student-faculty rapport Is almost non-exlstant; professors
find themselves faced mainly by
American students; unaware of
their elders rather austere and
unapproachable position.
The old system of education
was abandoned In 1966, and has
been replaced by a variety of
Improvements. The
rather archaic structure of higher learning and the overcrowded
conditions made such changes

Smoking Test
Television viewers will be able
to find out how much they know
about cigarettes and why people—
Including themselves —• smoke,
when CBS News presents the
"National Smoking Test" Tuesday, January 16 (10:00-11:00 PM,
EST) in color on the CBS Television Network. CBS News Correspondents Mike Wallace and
% Joseph Bentl are the reporters.
The test will be based on facts
about cigarette smoking which
have been public knowledge for
some time and will be divided Into
three segments.
(1) How You Feel About Smoking, consisting of statements with
which television viewers —
smokers and non-smokers alike
—can agree or disagree.
(2) What You Know AboutSmoklng, a section involving true or
false questions plus opinion-seeking queries.
(3) Smoker's Profile: Why You
Smoke, which will enable those
taking the test to learn the motivations behind their smoking.
Part 3 will be based on the
Insight Development Questionnaire developed by Dr. Daniel
Horn for the National Clearinghouse for Smoking and Health.
These questions will be animated by John Huxley, and Dr. Horn
will appear on the broadcast to
Interpret the finding.
In this segment there will be
no point-count "score." Instead,
smokers and non-smokers will be
able to compare themselves to a
national sample to learn how
many people are In the same
category In which they find themselves.

which he must Incorporate Into a
story. The story, to be started
by the moderator, will be passed
to the member of a team who has
a phrase, then to the other team's
member who has a different
phrase and then back again.
Once the time for the story has
run out each team will try to
guess the other's unknown
phrase. In the future the teams
will be drawn from other Greek
groups, dormitories, and other
campus groups.

President Evan R, Collins responded to an open letter addressed to him which appeared
In the Dec. 12 "Objector,'' a
magazine serving as a forum of
opinion on Vietnam published by
the Faculty Student Committee
to End the War, at his Dec. 18
President's Conference With
The letter called for Collins'
Immediate and public condemnation of the actions of U.S. General Lewis B. Hershey which began with a statement Issued by
Hershey to draft boards on Oct.
It further called for condemnation of the action by prevailing
upon Collins to ban Armed Forces
recruiters from the campus in
order to demonstrate the University's disfavor.
Collins explained that he felt
there were two Issues of concern
Instead of what may have appeared to be one from the context of
the letter. The first Issue Is the
public reaction and feelings about
the action taken by Hershey, and
the second issue lies In whether
or not the University should take
action against Hershey and ostensibly, the whole army.
He also stated that he felt that
from the beginning of the Hershey
Incident he had offered public
comment on the situation. He
again cited his belief In support
for a 'Open University' and his
subsequent belief that the campus
should be open to all recruiters.
At that time he made comment
against Hershey's action which
would, In effect make the draft
a punitive organ by using It to
against the draft, by changing a
persons draft status.
He Illustrated the concern of
not only himself, but of the other
Presidents of the University
Centers of the State University
System, by citing letters sent to
President Johnson and the Justice
Department expressing their concept.
On Dec. 9, the four presidents
sent a letter as a body which
offered their commendation of
the Joint Statement Issued by the
Justice Department and The
Selective Service which Insured
that constitutional guarantees of
due process would not be circumvented through administrative proceedings taken by the
Selective Service.
The letter stated "We understand that no sanctions, either
administrative or penal, will be
Imposed against protest or dissent which Is constitutionally protected.
"We also understand that the
statement to Insure that criminal
prosecution in the United States
District Courts . . . shall constitute and sole sanction against
public protests or demonstrations, and that administrative
proceedings shall under no circumstances be employed to stifle
or suppress opposition to the
Selective Service System. . ."
Later, on Dec. IS the President again sent a telegram expressing their feelings that
although the Joint Statement had
provided enough assurance that
registrants "engaged In peaceful
demonstrations and other forms
of legal protest would not risk
criminal prosecution." "It failed
to give assurance that reclassification or withdrawal of student
deferments for alleged violations
of the Selective Service Act would
not be employed against protestors on college and university
It went on to read that clarification on the rights of students
Is "even more urgent than before
the Issuance of the joint statement. We seek assurance that no
sanctions will be Imposed against
legal protest or dissent which Is
constitutionally protected."

Blood Shortage
At Albany Center
by Don Stankavage
Are you concerned about your
academic situation after your
first semester at the University? Is that 2.00 goal out of
your reach? Is lt possible that
you may be on probation next
term, or even dismissed from
the University?
"Before contemplating any
drastic action," says Dean Robert Morris of the University
College, "see your Academic
Advisor and discuss your problems thoroughly. Each student
Is considered as a special case."
There Is no low quality point
average that Is a cut - off point
to separate those who are excluded and those who stay for
another term. The determination of probationary standing Is
based on a Quality Point Deficiency, not a quality point
average. An explanation of the
idea of quality point deficiency
is in order.
It Is the number of quality
points you must earn In a probationary semester to achieve
an overall 2.00 average. Dean
Morris used this example to
clarify quality point deficiency.
Consider the first semester
freshman who Is carrying an
average 15 hour load of five
three-hour courses. He earns,
after his first semester, two
C's and three D's or any equivalent grade combination.
He would be placed on Academic Probation. In order to attain a 2,00 average after his
first two terms, he would have
to earn three B's and two C's
In his second semester.
The three B's are necessary to
balance the three D's of the
first term represent nine quality points. Those nine points
also represent his quality point
Your status In regard to academic or terminal probation depends on the magnitude of your
quality point deficiency. Any
equivalent average below five
C's to three D's and two C's
is the range of academic probation, In your freshman year.
You can go as low as one C
and four D's and still be on
terminal probation.
Any average worse than one
C and four D's usually results
In dismissal after the first term
because the quality point deficiency is considered insurmountable.
Academic probation demands
that you decrease your quality
point deficiency by a substantial amount or erase lt entirely if possible In the subsequent
Terminal probation Is much
more demanding. Its first condition Is that you pass all courses. The second requirement is
that you reduce your quality point
deficiency by a specified amount
by doing a certain number of
hours of B work in your probationary semester. In
cases, a letter from Dean Morris Is sent to your parents outlining your probationary status.

demlc probation,
To put these figures Into perspective: after the fall semester of last year, 15 students
out of 1289 total in the freshman class were dismissed and
182 students of 1289 were placed on some type of probation.
If a student finds himself on
probation after this- fall semester, he should not take his condition lightly. Just because he
Is on academic probation does
not automatically mean that the
student still has terminal status to fall back on. Also, do not
be surprised or discouraged if
your probationary situation lasts
over two terms.
Let's see what happened to
that select 182 after their second semester last year. Of the
37 placed on terminal probation in January, 19 were dismissed from the university in June.
Ten continued on terminal probation, 3 were removed from
terminal status, and 5 withdrew
from the University. That means
only 10 out of 37 maintained
their status quo, and only 3
of 37 Improved their position
by June.
Consider the 145 who were
on academic probation after their
first semester. 26 students were
dismissed after one term of academic probation, 35 were reduced to terminal status, 46 continued on academic probation,
4 withdrew from the university,
and only 33 were removed from
These statistics show that of
the t82 on probation, 45 were
dismissed after a subsequent
term and 9 withdrew, which
makes a total of 54 of 182 who

What can you do If you are

As part of the Interfalth Pilgrimage they walked through

As the group passed over the

Moral Decision?
"The State University of New York at
Albany has long been dedicated to high
standards of intellectual excellence. Its
methods are those of free inquiry, the
consideration of alternatives, and the making of choices. In its human relationships
it provides for a maximum of individual
"The characteristics of the university
make detailed description of behavior undesirable and the tradition of freedom
places high value on the ability of the individual to make choices and determine
his own way of action." 'Student Guidelines 1967-68'; page 22; Part IV, Personal
Responsibilities; section entitled "Standards of Conduct."
All this may be true; however there is
one case of "human relationships" In
which the student is not permitted to make
his own decision, in the freedom to judge
for himself his conduct with guests of the
opposite sex in his own room during Open
House, or Open Room Visitation.
For "Guidelines" further outlines these
aspects of individual freedoms in Part Vii,
Residences; section entitled "Residence
Guests," No. 2, which specifies that "The
doors of bedrooms and studies remain
open during this time. In general, these
events last two or three hours."
It seems to us that this tacitly states
that there will be no heterosexual relations in anybody's room, at any time, no
matter what, which is in effect a forced
moral decision.
Violators of this 'understanding' will
undoubtedly fall under the section of
"Student Conduct," No. 3; "Disorderly
or indecent behavior" subject to disciplinary action by the University.
It seems to us that students, encouraged by the University to become adult
and individual in their own relationships,
should be allowed some privacy during
specified open houses.
The only people involved in any moral
decisions on the matter should be the residents having the same living quarters. It
should concern no one else. We hope this
policy will be abolished as soon as
It is rewarding to us to think that these
individuals will give their time to learning
to counsel others on the legal alternatives

It is important to realize that they are
not a lobbyist group, nor are they designed
to disseminate propaganda; rather they
see themselves as offering a "sympathetic

The Right Way
by Robert jienvon
During the 1980a college campuses throughout the United
States were characterized by the
apathy of their students. Colleglates cared little and knew little
about their political and social
environment. Because of this attitude, the American public appealed to college students to become active and take an Interest
In the forces that were going to
Influence their lives, and Indeed
the entire world. The response to
this plea for Involvement resulted In the emergence of student
demonstrations, committees and
clubs. Although this activist trend
is in many ways beneficial, It
also contains certain dangers
which should be considered.
The greatest peril threatening
this student movement Is constituted by the extremist groups
who try to lure college students
Into their grasp. The college campus Is surrounded by an aura
of Idealism and learning, and
many times is divorced from
reality. As a result of these
a college student, who is at an impressionable age anyway, might easily
be duped by extremists of the
left or right.
For Instance,
Party-USA has an extensive program for recruiting and indoctrinating America's youth. J.
Edgar Hoover said, "The party
feels that our nation Is witnessing a new upsurge of leftist thinking among young people which
makes the Communist message
more palatable. The party, of
course, is exploiting this trend."
To further emphasize the Communist's desire to pollute and
exploit American youth Is the
fact that during the academic
years from 1961-65 Communist
speakers averaged 50 appearances on college campuses. During the 1965-66 academic year
they spoke on 69 campuses.
However, the Reds are not content to merely speak and leave.
In their wake they organize Communist youth groups, and persuade other pre-existing organizations to follow them. Some of
this Communist or Communist
affiliated groups are W.E.B. DuBols Clubs, the Young Socialist
Alliance, Youth Against War and
Fascism, and Students for
a Democratic Society (SDS).
"This group (DuBols Clubs) together with other so called 'new
left' organizations such as the
SDS work constantly In furtherance of the alms and objectives
of the Communist Party throughout the nation. Communist Party
Secretary Gus Hall described
these groups as part of the 'responsible left' that the party has
'going forus.' " (testimony House Subcommittee on Appropriations for 1968).
I am not suggesting that everyone cease from joining student
organizations. However, I do believe that It Is essential that
you carefully investigate any
group you plan to join. It is inedded unfortunate when young
people who have legitimate
concern for the problems of their
country become Involved with
subversive groups. As for the students at the University, would

certain that In an effort to Improve ourselves and our system,
we are not blindly aiding an

1968 Is now upon us and it
already seems destined to be,
politically at least, a disaster.
Every major publication and
virtually jevery columnist Informs us that this November
the American people shall be
faced with a choice between Richard Nixon and Lyndon Johnson.
This is tragic as an electoral
contest like that can do more to
vitiate the Democratic process
than thefearedCommunistscould
ever hope to accomplish in the
United States. Every public opinion poll demonstrates that the
American people would like to
see a choice between Nelson
Rockefeller and Robert F. Kennedy. The people neither like or
trust Messrs. Nixon and Johnson, but weAmericanshavecome
to accept the idea that the bosses
and not the people choose our
leaders. I believe that we call
this the American political tradition. And therefore we accept the alleged inevitability of
a Johnson-Nixon race. More than
anything else, it Is sad and disillusioning.

not expected to ever surface.
This was to be a new day and
in the 1960s there was going
to be no room for the Nixons
and the Johnsons. November
22, 1963 changed everything. Not
only did we lose the man who was
the greatest leader of the generation, but we seemed to have
lost our bearing too.
So now It seems as though we
have turned the clock back. The
resurrection of the_ Elsenhower
era is apparently complete. Unless there Is a radical change in
the situation, we are going to
have to choose between Johnson
and Nixon.

Writes On Vietnam Scene
To the Editor:
Before entering Into a discussion of the War In Viet Nam
which is based on my own observation, a few basic facts should
be brought out for foundation.
Well we know that our government's purpose for fighting In
Viet Nam is "to protect the people and government of South Vietnam from Communist aggression." There are facts however
which make this purpose weak
at best.
—South Viet Nam was not Invaded by the North until after
the United States had begun bombing raids on the North.
—The Viet Cong are South
Vietnamese who began their rebellion against dictatorial governments In their own country
and who are now fighting in opposition to United States Imperialism.
These two facts alone are sufficient to prove that the United
States Is not fighting a war of
protection or liberation, but rather one of intervention in a country's domestic affairs.

asked to Intervene by the government of South Viet Nam" . . .

To the Editor:
With the passage of more than
adequate time to properly test
and evaluate the Vietnam related
policies and actions of the President, one must conclude that his
re-election would not be In the
best Interest of the Democratic
Party, but of greater Importance, the Interest of the country. The detailed substantiation
of this conclusion Is beyond the
scope of this letter, but one
method of obtaining the goal
is not.
Currently the one reasonable,
logical and lawful method open
to concerned Democrats is to
deny Mr. Johnson the Party's
nomination. To promote this
course of action calls for actual
and potential sacrifices from
those closely affiliated with the
Party. But, to some Individuals,
the demands for 'party loyalty'
come second to what they believe Is of significant national
Having been a supporter of
Mr. Johnson, I find it necessary to change my position.
He no longer represents the
Ideals for which I voted In 1964,

and their cause, I cast my lot
with theirs.

To the Editor:
On January 4 on the dinner
lines, Living Area Affairs Commission administered a poll to
"ascertain whether or not there
is sufficient student desire to
establish a non-compulsary Air
Force ROTC Program at Albany." There are several aspects of this poll that I question. The first is whether It is
within the Jurisdiction of LAAC
to poll the students concerning
curriculum rather than that of
Academic Affairs.
After I questioned the person
who administered the poll on
Dutch Quad he Inferred that It
was done upon the "request"
of Dean Thome. Therefore my
second point questions whether
LAAC Is a tool of Thome and
what services he expects from
My third point is that women
were excluded from this poll.
I appreciate the fact that women are not eligible for ROTC,
but I do not appreciate that they
were not given an opinion In this
poll which might contribute to
a significant change In University policy. It Is more than a
question of ROTC In place of
physical education; It Is one of

well as the men both In and out

I am especially disappointed
that LAAC did not seem to put
much thought Into this question
which merits much more consideration. In view of these points

do so — as I see It, Academic

YEA Security
To the Editor:
I would like to commend the
Campus Security force of this
University. I have read quite
a bit in columns within this
newspaper, and heard In general
conversation, remarks which
might lead one to believe that
the credentials of the Campus
Police weren't those which might
be expected of a security force.
If their Job Is to aid the University community in maintaining
some sort of order as far as
traffic and parking are concerned, I think that their work is
quite satisfactory, while very
unrewarding. But their Job goes
beyond that, as those who have
needed their help should be able
to verify.
I am writing this letter mainly to compliment the fast, courteous and timely' aid that I received from the Campus Police
on Dec. 20. At about 8:30 that
evening my wife decided to have
a baby that wasn't due for three
weeks. She called the Security
Office and through their prompt
action I was transported home,
my wife picked up, and we were
driven to the hospital (and, if
I may use a cliche) Just in the
nick of time.
On my behalf I would like to
say "Thank You," to the Campus Police. I am sure there are
many others on this campus who
could say the same.
Sincerely yours,
David P. Moore
Needs vs. Books
To the Editor:
Recently I acquired a somewhat disturbing piece of knowledge from a reliable source.
It seems that one member of
the Bookstore Advisory Board
would like to turn the State University Bookstore Into a Sclbner's. Drugs, records, cards,
cameras, sweatshirts, and other
assorted non-literary items such
as school supplies are unnecessary for the student, says this
misaligned faculty member. The
Bookstore, he says, should be
Just that, selling a greatly Increased stock of paperbacks and
hardbound volumes, Including
such things as encyclopedias, and
carrying an almost nonexlstant
stock of such unimportant things
as notebooks. In short, this
faculty member would like the
Bookstoro to cater to the faculty
and not to the students.
I must agree that the more
books that are offered for sale,
the more completely the store
will be serving the University.
However, the Bookstore also Is
meant to serve the needs of the
students' dally life, cigarettes,
drugs, and other sundries are
necessities for the student, who
does not want to walk through
the cold to Stuyvesant Plaza to
buy a bar of soap. It would be
advisable to devote the present
facilities solely to the sale of
books only If another spot on
campus were available for sale
of other items, but since the
available space on campus is
nil, anyone who wants an encyclopedia will have to' use the
While the bookstore Is no

either. In fact, when it completes
Its reorganization and restocking
of its shelves It will have reached
a good compromise between bookstore and drugstore, a welcome
change from the mess that last
year characterized its operation.
At that time the store offered
everyone nothing. Now It offers
everyone something, and there is
no reason to slight one group
in favor of another.

'Dear Sara ASP'
To the Editor:
(Dear Sara Asp:)
As a basically Conservative
American student, I rarely find
necessity to "protest" (ugh) any
branch or function of our wonderful nation and Its people. I have
seen the deviations wrought by
certain small minority elements
over the past few years; the protests, bestialities and Ingratitudes of the few (mostly "big
city" sons of Immigrants).
I am a tolerant man, however,
and realize the European and
African influences exerted on
them by their families and oldcountry based organizations. I
know that as they grow acquainted with our great land they will
come to realize their mistakes
and will accept enthusiastically,
as do we all, the fine way of life
that Is America.
However, I finally feel forced
to speak out, now, against a grave
sedition which has quietly appeared to Infect this campus far beyond
undercurrent of
Ignorance of which I have written.
Your paper ever since I arrived
at this campus, has certainly reflected the fine patriotic, American attitudes expressed by the
S.U.N.Y.A, student body. But
suddenly, over the past few
Issues I have detected certain unsavory, un-American Influences
creeping Into Its pages.
Take, as the main example
so far, your twopage "Communications" column of Oct. 12,1067.
("Communications"? Funny how
similar that word Is In appearance to another term that begins; "Communl . . ." Coincidence? Really? some Coincldencel)
Just looking at the first three
"articles" we find; "International pacifism', 'the right of
sabotage,' 'disruption of the
Pentagon/ and 'limitations ofthe
freedom of speech for Johnson,
McNamara and others.' "
Now really, I know that a little
liberalism Is Inescapable even in
a nation as great as America,
but this is excessive to the point
of insanity. Nuts like these three
writers are a danger to the well
being of us all.
Here are people who refuse
a even write under their own
names; the obvious pseudonyms
all three employ show their true
yellow Commie mettle. (They
must be pseudonyms. I know of
the people right on campus with
identical names and I am certain
that they are not ranting radical
persons at all. They should all
get together and sue.
To shower such ridiculous
abuse on the head of such a fine
one-hundred per cent American
as Michael J. Rose Is to defeat
completely any even half legitimate sentiments that such
radicals might hold.
The first writer feared that
our hard earned Freedom of
Speech was endangered by the
lunatic fringe. I cannot help but
agree with him. (I am, as they
say, a tolerant man). It Is Commies like this that strain our
great Democracy to where we can
only say "Oh Lord forgive them
for what they do, for they are
like unto children," and hope that
some day the fine spirit that Is
America shall come to warm
even their cold eastern hearts.
Clean up your paper before
it Is to late, Drive the nuts from
your gates. The
Able and
People of this great
land must be served.
God help us,
Edward Silver

Association with the Greek Week
Committee. Each fraternity and
sorority requests Its Individual
members to pay student tax;
however, no benefits are derived
for the group. Only the individuals benefit personally.
Fraternities and sororities are
not part of our Student Government structure; they do not receive budgets as do commissions and clubs. The Greek
Groups have always remained
financially Independent ofStudent
Government, and there seems no
reason for a different method of
operation at this level.
A cooperative effort in the
form of a loan or subsidy for a

On January 3, 1968, the University adopted the
following policies concerning the sale and service
of alcoholic beverages in the Patroon Room, and
Rathskeller of the Campus Center, at the Mohawk
Campus, Camp Dipplklll, and the Goodman Place
at Dipplklll. The regulations are based on the recommendations of the Committee to Draft Campus
Alcohol Policy, which includes both students and
faculty members.
The specific recommendations which pertain to
the Campus Center and to the off-campus facilities
which are considered adjuncts ofthe Campus Center are made with the understanding that the D i rector of University Food Service and the Director
of the Campus Center will be In close cooperation
regarding hours of operation of specific facilities,
and specific operational procedures for carrying
out the Intended principles.
Alcoholic beverage service in the Patroon Room
and Rathskeller will be Initiated at the same time.
That is, one facility should not serve alcoholic
beverages before the other.
Policies and Procedt res for Serving Alcoholic
Beverages In the Patroon Room
Service of alcoholic beverages In the Patroon
Room Is motivated by the'concept of "gracious
dining." Beverages are served for the purpose of
enhancing the meal. For this reason, the following
regulations exist:
1. Service In the Patroon Room will coincide
with the hours during which food is served, for as
many days during the seven-day week that the
restaurant facility Is open.
2. The Patroon Lounge, with the understanding
that it will not be reserved for special functions
when the restaurant Is open, may be used as an
auxiliary facility. That is, only in conjunction with
meal serving:
a. for cocktails when waiting for a free table,
or prior to a reservation.
b. for after-dinner drinks.
3. Alcoholic beverages will be served by waiters
and or waitresses only. This pertains to the routine
operation of the Patroon Room and Patroon Lounge.
Other arrangements may be made when these
facilities are reserved for special functions,
4. The University reserves the right to request
proper proof of age or Identification from any
patron. Acceptable age validation would Include the
SUNYA I.D, card, driver's license, and selective
service registration certificate.
5. Should an Individual who Is refused service,
either due to Insufficient proof of age or Intoxication, become actively Indignant, Immediate referral
to the Director of the Campus Center, or his designee, Is mandated. At the discretion of the Director of the Campus Center, this Individual may
be further referred tothe appropriate Judicial body.
Policies and Procedures for Serving Beer In the
Establishing "open" hours when beer will be
served In the Rathskeller will offer both the drinker
and the non-drinker a place on campus In which to
socialize — a place that by Its atmosphere, nature
and standards will encourage socially acceptable
behavior. Because the Rathskeller will be both afood
facility, and, at time, a "dry" area, the aurn o.' i
typical bar or grill will not be created.
It Is also desirable that students have a "place
on campus" to drink so that they will not be forced
to go off-campus, and so that they are in a situation
which Is conducive to the Imparting and integration
of certain educational principles with regard to
acceptable behavior. In such an
atmosphere, the rights of the non-drinker are not
easily lost, hence the opportunity to learn about
the rights of both the Individual and the group Is
1. Service of beer is to be on a seven-day basis,
as follows:
a. Sunday - Friday: 7:00 P.M. to one-half hour
before the closing time of the Rathskeller.
b. Saturday: 2:00 PM to one-half hour before
c. At (he one-half hour before closing, service
is to stop, and beer mugs are to be recalled.
2. Beer only will be dispensed from the beverage
service area,
3. I.D. Cards:
a. Each individual must present an I.D. card
to the bartender. Only one mug of beer per
I.D. card will be served. A non-member of the
University will be asked to present some means
of identification such as a driver's license.
b. Bartender will retain I.D. card until empty
mug is returned.
c. Each re-ordering will necessitate the same
procedure. In this way, no one can pass a mug
to a friend (who has not presented an I.D. card)
for re-NUIng of same. This would necessitate
a person, additional to the bartender, to handle
this procedure.
d. Non-members of the University community
must be "guests" of a member. (This means
that sponsorship by an Individual faculty member or student of an outsider is necessary. It
would then be exceedingly difficult for "wanderers" to avail themselves of the service and
to potentially cause problems resulting from
consumption of beer.)
4. Should an Individual who Is refused service,
either due to Insufficient proof of age or intoxication, become actively indignant, immediate referral
to the Director of the Campus Center, or his
designee, Is mandated. At the discretion of the
Director of the Campus Center, this individual
may be further referred to the appropriate student
Judicial body.
Policies and Procedures Concerning Alcohol at
Mohawk Campus, Camp Dipplklll and Goodman
Place at Dipplklll
At registered and approved events, and during
designated "open" hours all legally-eligible members of the University community, and their
specifically invited guests, are permitted to bring,
serve and consume their own alcoholic beverages
at the Mohawk Campus, Camp Dipplklll and the
Goodman Place at Dipplklll. The Student ActivitiesCampus Center Office has responsibility for the
registration and approval of events, and for the
execution of the same guidelines and policies with
regard to functions at which alcohol Is served, as
exist for the Campus Center.
1. No one under 18 years of age will be permitted to drink;
2. The present chaperone policy shall be maintained;
3. The responsibility for the behavior of the
members of the group rests with the leaders.
4. The individual Is expected to assume a high
degree of personal responsibility.
These regulations are promulgated with the
understanding that the responsibility for administering the use of the Mohawk Campus, Camp
Dipplklll and the Goodman Place, Is vested In the
appropriate official of the Student ActivitiesCampus Center Office staff.

took my seat at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater in
New York for "How Now, Dow Jones!" My suspicious nature was aroused because the last
play that I saw at this theater was the horrible
"Skyscraper," and to add to. this was the fact
that no big-name leads were listed on the bill.
The only really familiar names were George
Abbott, Oliver Smith, and Philip J. Lang, and
these were only In the technical realm. Nevertheless, I took a deep breath, and the rather boring but percussive overture brought the curtain up.

lans" (Delaware Theatre) and
Joshua Logan's "Camelot" (Madison Theatre) have so many similar faults and exemplify so much
commonly rotten In cinema today, that lumping them together In the same review Is as much
a matter of analysis as convenience — killing two turkeys with
one stone.
Both films are stagy, overlong, fllmlcally static, heavyhanded In treatment, and unbearably talky. Both display dialogue
that would make a sophomore
weep; two samples out of many:
"Comedians:" "My dear, my
darling, don't torture yourself!"
and "Camelot:" "Better to be
rubbed clean than rubbed out."
Such deathless dialogues are never Integrated with the settings,
but no matter, since the settings
tare treated so perfunctorily anyhow. And neither film really fits
the wide screen or attempts to
use color creatively.
Stylistically both films share
that common fault of contemporary cinema: excrutlatlng overuse of the extreme facial closeup. Now such a close-up Is like
a fortissimo In orchestral writing — you use It sparingly, saving It for the moment when It
will be most powerful emotionally and esthetlcally. Though
"Comedians" Is replete with this
flaw, "Camelot" Is the worse
offender because with almost
every song-sequence shot In those
extreme close-ups, Logan has
permitted his actors to Indulge

completely different from that of

the stories (sic) of these films.

oddly, his cinema writing Is us

when all he has to do Is look

Burton wears his usual haggard
belligerence and muddles through
his part. It may be niggling to object to the lmplauslblllty of a
couple of lunatic American tourists when none of the characters
possesses the solidity of cardboard. The plot finally starts
to move In the last half-hour,
when the film seems to end three
distinct times. Glenvllle's direction Is hackneyed throughout, with
the exception of a shot of a toad
by a corpse which Is momentarily arresting.
"Camelot" Is painfully wlilmslcal, self-consciously pretty,
and rigidly stagebound.lt possesses one of the most tedious expositions on film, a meaningless

Broadway has had a terrible time getting musicals off the ground this season. This Is due, I
believe, to the rather harsh critic's reviews
("Henry, Sweet Henry" has suffered unduly),
and because the music theater is caught In a
vacuum. People are getting weary of burlesquetype shows, even If they are the only big hits,
and they are searching for something besides
the bombastic "Mame's" and "Dolly's," yet they
are hoping for something original, new, and entertaining. So far nothing too original has shown
up except for Dow Jones which probably fits the
bill of originality the best of anything so far this
season or last!
Curtain Rises
As the curtain rises, we find Cynthia, a guide
played by Brenda Vaccaro, leading a typical group
of sightseers (the audience) on an untypical tour
of the "heartbeat" of our mighty nation, the stock
market on Wall Street. These tourists, however,
are about to see a little more than Is customary.
Cynthia has a mad crush on the head of the New
York Stock Exchange, Mr. Wlngate, while her friend
Kate (Marlyn Mason), the voice of Dow Jones who
announces the trend of the stock market hourly,
thinks she Is In love with a clerk who will not
marry her until the stock market hits 1,000.
Kate meets another guy named Charley (Anthony
Roberts) at a nearby Child's Restaurant.
Charley has been a failure In life, and Is presently getting drunk so he can go out and commit
suicide. Kate joins him, but they suddenly find
themselves really enjoying each other's company
—"Live a Little," and "The Pleasure's about to
be Mine." The romantic escapade ends up In bed,
but the following morning Kate decides that she
must leave Charley for good because she has to
preserve her reputable stature, and because Charley Is really a failure. She sings "Walk Away,"
an almost good song!
In the meantime, Mr. Wlngate and the tycoons
are trying to find someone who will be able to sell
stock to those wealthy widows and orphans. They
need a guy who Is shy and easily mothered to attract these women whose only Interest In stocks
Is whether or not the President of the company Is
handsome and wears glasses — a terribly true
comment on an actual state of affairs. Charley Is
hired and becomes an amazing success because
of his popularity with the women. They celebrate
his popularity In the show stopper, "Step to the

because she has endangered the stability of the
market. Her song about her "Big Trouble" ends
the first act.
The second act opens In the Ascot tradition
of "My Fair Lady" — "Credo" — a rather sedate chorus number. Everyone starts buying stock
madly, and It Is obvious that the stock market
Is headed for "Big Trouble." Charley has to inform his widows that they are about to be ruined,
and everybody rushes out In search of Kate who
has disappeared — "Panic", a big dance-chase
number staged very cleverly.
Charley and Kate solve the problem for everyone, Including Cynthia who has become the unused
mistress of Mr. Wlngate, by bringing In A.K.,
the world's richest man who is persuaded to buy
some of every kind of stock to save the market.
Everyone ends up happy — "That's Good Enough
for Me."
For a while I was really worried because the
show was very slow getting started — even the
actors and chorus had no life. All of a sudden,
Charley and the widows bring the house down with
their song "Step to the Rear," and the show
moves along at a rather brisk pace right to the
end. The score, created by Elmer Bernstein
nnd Carolyn Leigh, Is really not memorable, but
the songs are enjoyable. Bernstein has been the
composer for "Hawaii" and "Thoroughly Modern
Millie," while Carolyn Leigh has done the lyrics
for "Wild Cat" and "Little Me." Max Shulman,
the librettist, has created a script which Is full
of cute laughs and commentary on the times. The
problem Is that It Is so dated that no one will
laugh In a couple of years.
Cast Delighted
The cast, although not made up of big name
stars, Is truly a delight. Brenda Vaccaro, playing Cynthia, Is really the tops. Her personality
and husky singing voice both radiate In every
way except distinct audibility. Kate, portrayed
by Marlyn Mason, Is enjoyable, and Anthony
Powers, as Charley, Is truly delightful. Hiram
Sherman, as Wlngate, plays his role beautifully
and In good comic style, and all of the widows
are really quite hysterical, particularly Charlotte
Jones whom many will remember for her recent
role as Mother Burnslde In "Mama."
Oliver Smith, the famed scenic designer, has
designed what I think Is probably his worst set.
It Is a bore of scanty drops, and unreal flats
and moveable platforms. The platforms which
may be moved about on the stage are stored behind two ugly flats which are lowered to conceal the tables etc., on the platforms, really
creating a lousy looking stage. The only clever
and good feature Is the scrim of New York's
skyline on which all of the buildings look like
ticker tape. The choreography leaves a great
deal to be desired — there's nothing new or
clever to be seen here, and the lighting by Martin Aronsteln Is adequate.
How long Dow Jones will last Is anybody's
guess, but I fear that It will not be for very
long. Nevertheless, If you are looking for some
rather good entertainment and a few laughs,
make this show a part of your theatrical Itinerary. Tickets are readily available.

being the team's, third leading
rebounder behind Price and
Margison. However, at the
present time, he Is recovering
from penmounla and will be unable to play against RIT. His
place will be taken by Tom Doody,
who hit for a personal high of
14 against RPI.
Working as a Team
Commenting on the team's
play, Sauers stated that "We
are playing together more each
game, looking for the open man
and working better as a team.
Adams and Wood are taking some
pressure off Price and Margison
with their double-figure scoring,
giving us a well-balanced attack,
which means the defense can't
concentrate on one or two men
and stop our offense."
But when It comes right dow..
to It, It Is Margison and Price
who must perform well If the
Dane offense is going to click.
In the first game of the Tourney
against Hamilton, which the
locals won, 105-87, Margison
tallied 25, In the 86-69 victory
over RPI on the second night,
Price netted 24. In the finale
aglnst Siena, which the Sauersmen came out on top, 69-63,
both tallied 17. Price, who seems
to "explode" Into the air, set a
tournament record of 57 points,
while Marglson's 56 also beat
the old mark. Rich led all Albany
rebounders with 39, while Scott
was right behind with 37.

and were never headed thereafter.
For the season so far,

by many observers as the best
player In the area, leads the
squad In scoring with an average
of 21.3 ppg. Price Is next with
16.3 In addition to pacing the
team in rebounds at 11 a contest.
