averaging 10.7 ppg In addition to
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,
Margison, who has been conceded
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.

University, presents an Impressive picture to the visitor.
The plush carpetingand furniture
probably make the building unsurpassed In any other university. The centralization of offices makes the building a convenience unavailable to faculty
and students before.
The major part of the moving
of offices from Draper to their
present locations was completed
last week. According to the secretaries the moving was quick and
smooth, and in most cases was
accomplished In a single afternoon.
Among the offices now Included
In the building are the Bursar's
office, the Registrar's office,
the Business Administration, and
personnel offices. In fact, nearly
every administrative office of the
University is included in the
building. The office for legal
council will be moving to

President Collins' office is
probably the highlight of the
entire building. Carpeted In plush
green, the office does not contain
a desk, but rather Is furnished

crystal chandeliers. Adjacent to
the office is the president's
private study. Also on the second
floor is the conference room.
The conference table is long
enough to seat twenty-two people
in large chairs, and had to be
brought In In three parts.
Charles Bowler, director of
alumni affairs, pointed out that
the Alumni Association has " e s tablished its claim to fame" by
placing an original painting by

ber of appropriations. Balling Club presented a budget of
$12,600 with money coming from
three sources: Central Council
Emergency attending Line (ESL),
Athletic Advisory Board Surplus
(AA Board) and Faculty-Student
Association (FSA), to buy sailboats, to provide for maintenance, to pay the charter fees
for Inter-Collegiate Sailing etc.
Council appropriated $2,200 to
buy sailboats which will be used
mainly for recreational purposes. Council also approved a
$5,400 appropriation from AA
Board's surplus. Council acted
on this measure because they
must approve all of Its expenditures over $1,000 FSA allocated
$5,000 from its funds to the Club.
Sailing Club members stated
that the boats bought with AA
Board funds will be used primarily for Intercollegiate sailing. AA
boats can be used for both recreation and competitive sailing.
They plan to have Instructions
and demonstrations on sailing to
attract new members to the club.
All students who have paid Student Tax were welcomed to participate.
Council appropriated $320
from the ESL to AMIA for Intercollegiate Council extra-mural
athletics. The Torch was allocated $900 to pay for additional expenditures due to the rise In
printing and photography costs.

However, It Is the responsibility of the student to remove anything that Is on these surfaces.
If he does not, the maid will
not touch them — nor will she
clean them.
Miss Catherine Brown of the
residence staff stated 'that one
of the main reasons for this action was that the "wear and tear
on the rooms demands a good
deal of maintenance wort which
might be averted If this system
works effectively." She reiterated that this program was strictly experimental.
The privilege to say "no" to
the maids will not be granted
completely to the student. According to Miss Brown, whether
or not the student consents "The
maids will still clean the floors
and the bathrooms."
This system has never operated before at the University. Prior
to this time, maids only cleaned lounges and bathrooms.

Supreme 'Court has upheld the

The Court's ruling — Its first
In favor of such an oath — came
In the form of a brief order affirming a Federal District Court
decision In New York. The District Court had upheld the constitutionality of a New York law
requiring all teachers in public schools,and in private schools
with tax-exempt status, to swear
to uphold the Federal and state

the question of whether any type
of loyalty oath for teachers Is
constitutional. Since 1961, the
Court has declared loyalty oaths
In five states unconstitutional,
The oaths thrown outbytheCourt
generally have required teachers
to sign that they are not members

The New York oath which was
upheld reads, "I do solemnly
swear (or affirm) that I will sup.
port the constitution of the United States of America and the constitution of the State of New
York, and that Iwill faithfully discharge, according to the best of
my ability, the duties . . . to
which I am now assigned."
The New York oath is Identic
cal to the oaths of office required of many state and federal officials. The oath has previously
been upheld for public officials,
but not for teachers.
The Oath was being tested for
its constitutionality by 27 faculty
members at Adelphl College In

private Institution whose real

the New York oath has been In

President Johnson has asked
Congress for modest increases
in federal student aid programs
during fiscal 1969, but the increases will be offset by severe
reductions In higher education
construction funds.
The administration's 1969budget request also Includes' an
Increase of about $86 million
for - educational research In the
Office of Education, and an Increase of nearly $70 million
for teacher training.
In his budget message to Congress this week, the President
requested an ncrease of $112
million for existing student financial aid programs and a decrease of $82 million In the
amount of federal funds for construction grants to colleges.
The Increases in federal aid
to students are spread over a
number of different programs,
resulting In only modest Increases for each program.

Legislators On Fire
The Draft Counseling Committee, recently formed by several faculty members' and other interested persons, is under fire from certain State Legislators
who are pressuring the administration to
fire the professors Involved. We feel that
the action by these Legislators is despicable and i s aimed, not at improving the
University, but at piling up votes for the
Legislators Involved.
It is true that the State University of
New York is run by the State of New York
and subject to some control by the Legislature, but If those running the government of the state consider it their perogatlve to attempt to have University faculty
members fired on such flimsy grounds as
these, we feel that they are not equipped
to have any control over a university.Any
university made subject to the vote-getting tricks of such men would not be worth
We are very glad to hear that our administration has refused to give the names
of the faculty In the group to these Legislators as has been requested. We hope
that these professors continue their efforts to represent their point of view
among the many represented here. We,
further, hope that these Legislators will
come to their senses and discover what
i s meant by an "open campus" and "freedom of speech."
Fridoy, Februory 9, 1968
The addition of two-specific clauses regarding
narcotics on campus to the student conduct guidelines for the State University System leaves no doubt
as to where the University stands with respect to
this growing, problem, or does It?
The first clause states that "the regulations . . .
shall expressly forbid the. illegal use of narcotics
and dangerous drugs on campus" and that each "institution, through cooperation with the appropriate
health and law enforcement agencies, will provide
no sanctuary for those who violate State and Federal narcotics laws."
But in what manner will the administration cooperate? It is still not clear whether, if a member
of the residence staff discovers someone using narcotics on campus, he will notify the civil authorities
or not. Or will the case be unpublicized and decided
outside the University court system? A clarification on this question is seriously needed.
The University System policy further states that
the University shall supervise and authorize "campus visitations by non-students" and Includes a definition of loitering as remaining on University grounds
when "not having any reason or relationship involving custody of or responsibility for a pupil or
student or any other specific, legitimate reason for
being there."
This can very easily be directed toward removing
possible drug pushers, however, would not a federal
narcotics • agent, if he came onto this campus, come
under this classification also?
Our administration states that it knows of no such
agents on campus; therefore, if any are present,
they could have received no such "authorization."
We doubt, however, that any persons suspected of
being an agent would even be approached and asked
what he was doing here.
This dual standard, we feel, would not be in keeping with the University policy of an "open campus."
Further, the presence of such agents would seriously
inhibit the free discussion of the issue, since anyone
expressing a pro opinion on the use of narcotics
would be subject to suspicion and possible harassment.
Or would a federal narcotics agent's "specific,
legitimate reason" be decided by authorities other than
the University administration? We hope that all these
questions will be clarified and-or rectified in the very
near future.
The Right Way

Negation of Privilege?
The student of this University traditionally has been given the privilege of retaining the privacy of his room. Although
the University reserves the right to enter
the student's room without permission,
Dr. Cllffton C. Thorne, vice president for
student affairs, pointed out at the last
President's Conference with Students, It
is the Administration's policy to enter the
student's room without permission or his
knowledge only in clear cases of emergency.
However, the residence staff is planning
an experiment on Colonial Quad which will
take this privilege of privacy away from
the student. The plan will require a resident to admit a maid to his room for
cleaning the floors and flat surfaces, such
as desk tops.
Although it is a justifiable concept that
this procedure may reduce the neglect in
the dorms (which makes necessary a great
deal of maintenance work during the summer), and perhaps, decrease the cost of
rooms, the usurping of a student's privilege is unjustifiable. The question being
dealt with here is not one of cleanliness
but one of privacy.
To be consistent with the University's
policy, the residence staff must allow the
student the privilege of requesting a maid
not to clean his room. Since this experiment has not begun, we suggest that the
present plan be changed so that a maid
will enter a student's room to clean only
if he desires the service.

Regardless of how the U.S.
resolves the Pueblo crisis, certain historical lessons can be
drawn from the Incident. Our
policy In Vietnam, our disastrous restraint In the Korean
War, and the very nature of
Communism Itself can be related to the Pueblo affair.
Many of the critics of the
American commitment In Vietnam assert that the Communist
North Vietnamese and the Viet
Cong are each Independent of outside control, are politically Independent, In other words are benign, nationalistic Communist
groups. Contrary to this belief,
the seizure of the Pueblo and
other recent Incidents has proven that there Is unified, planned
Communist activity seeking the
conquest of all South East Asia.
The act of piracy commlted by
the North Koreans coincides ex.
actly with a major Communist
military offensive In Vietnam.
This Is not coincidence, but an
attempt by the Korean Reds to
help their comrades In Vietnam
by trying to divert the attention
of the U.S. from the Communist
buildup at Khe Sanh. Recent Communist attacks on government
troops In Laos, Cambodia, and
Korea further Illustrate the cohesive Communist force operating In South East Asia. The abduction of the Pueblo represents
one more part of a carefully
laid Red scheme to harass the
U,s. and remove the last obstacle to their conquest of South
East Asia.
Today's ominous situation can
be largely attributed to our failure to dispose of Red China and
her puppets during the Korean
War. Had we allowed MacArthur
to win a real victory In Korea,
we would not be in Vietnam today, nor would there be a Com-
munist North Korean government
to hyjack American ships. Truman's refusal to allow MacArthur
to eliminate the Communists in
Asia once and for all must be
regarded as one of the most
costly mistakes In recent American History. As a result, the
legitimate government of China
Is marooned on Formosa, Red
China has progressed Into a nuclear power, and the Chinese
Communists are threatening all
South East Asia through manipulation of their allies In Vietnam,
Korea, Laos and Cambodia.
However, more recent events
than the Korean War Influenced
the seizure of the Pueblo. Our
soft attitude towards Castro, culminating in the Bay of Pigs
fiasco, and our hesitancy to
use our superior military power
to win the war In Vietnam has
encouraged the Red aggressors.
Their boldness has Increased
to a point where they dare to detain an American ship! If we
allow them to escape unpunished for their latest act of aggression, what will they try next?
If we fall to deal harshly with
the North Korean Communists
we will surely pay the price In
years to come. Red China and
the Soviet Union will continue
to think of us as a paper tiger.
History has shown that appeasement has never stopped an
aggressor. I would hope tliat by
the time this column appears
In the ASP the U.S. will have taken appropriate action against
North Korea, We must show the
Communists that our attitude towards them is one of strenuous
opposition; that If they persist in
their aggression "OUR might will
make right," that we will use
whatever force

To the Editor:
I want to explain why my
column, "Notes from the Movement" will no longer be appearing In the ASP. I agreed to write
a column last fall with the understanding that what I submitted
would not be altered without my
permission. However, the editors
who recently took over the ASP
do not feel that they can continue
this relationship.
They told me that it is their
responsibility to make certain
that their readers understand that
what I say In my column Is
opinion (not to be confused with
facts). Therefore, In my last
column (on the trail of five black
students In Houston, Texas), they
Inserted "I feel" three times and
"It seems" once.
The good liberal would be upset
If I said that I was being made
subject to censorship. But it
appears that the editors feel
(after having discussed the
matter with one of our good
deans) that my views are not best
expressed through my particular
style. In our last conversation
the editors let out that they felt
I was using "tricks" to spread
t The editors probably feel that
my refusing to write in the future
Is some kind of pollticlal trick
or that I'm being "Irrational."
That they obviously so not see
that their policy hinders my selfexpression is an Indication of
what kind of newspaper we will
have for the next year.

Editor's Note: We would
like to correct an error in Mr.
letter. At no time
did we apeak to any one of
our "good deans" about his
column, nor did any approach
us concerning his column. We
agree with Mr. Pollak though
when he states that we do not

Vietnam Policy
To the Editor:
President Johnson's Vietnam
Policy, If based on thepremlse of
achieving freedom for the South
Vietnamese or of self-interest of
the United States, Is Inconsistent
and misleading.
If the goal of American occupation Is a democratic government
for the people of South Vietnam,
then what of the oppressed people of Greece, Spain, Hungary,
Haiti, Poland, Argentina, Algeria, Congo, Syria, Tibet, etc.
If the goal of American occupation is to protect our country's
then what of
Castro's Cuba, only 90 miles
from our shores?
It would seem that there Is
another explanation for Mr. Johnson's policy. Some would say he
Is a "captive" of the militaryIndustrial complex and striving
to Implement a new Imperialism,
or he's misinformed as to the true
political situation In Southeast
Asia. Still others would point to
an arrogant self-pride In his
while delusions of
granduer are offtred as another
Regardless of the degree of
truth In the aiformentloned, the
fundamental reason for Mr. John-
son's actions Is a lack of understanding of nationalism and selfdetermination (either explicit or
implicit), and a perverted view
of America's proper role in the
community of nations.
To rectify the situation, Mr.
Johnson should retire or be retired aid a successor chosen
who has vision to properly deal
with the problems which exist in
the world and nation today.

Walter John Clark
In the beginning there were
no fraternities. Miami of the
North was still Albany State
College for Teachers. Suddenly,
burning his name
into history, State's first flyer,
Edward Eldred Potter, courageously gave, his life somewhere
in France by crashing his biplane lno the side of a hangar.
Back in the States, Edward's
classmates decided to form a
society in the image and likeness
of the uncelebrated war hero.
Potter Club was born; dedicated to the Ideals of physical excellence and fair play toward
all. Even today, the members
continue to "do unto others."
Another group which wasformed during this era was originally known as the Spotless Living
Society. Its members fought for
the Student Body by running it
completely. It seemed that all
student officers were filled by
members of the society. Many
years later, a deceptive personage wormed his way into the
society. A cancer grew up among
the members, a disagreement
concerning the meaning of fraternity. The most Sincere Twenty Brothers broke away from
those who had brought plague Into
their society and formed their
own group.
This group gave up Its rights
to the name S.L.S. but not their
ability to be elected to student
office. This uncanny knack has
been under scrutiny recently and
has been proven not to be Just
the product of winning personalities.
Another group, the Albany Piety Association, was founded
by a group of semi - conservatives who wished to expose the
evils of drink and the undeslrabllity of women. Striving toward perfection, its members
have abstained from these base
pleasures for many years. To
this very day, no member would
dare drink In public, show emotion In public, or even be seen
in the company of a female.
In 1923, Kevin Baurman, a pilot, enrolled In the Albany College for Teachers. He Is reported to have worn his flight
jacket dally, a navy blue Jacket
with his Initials, K.B., emblazoned on the left side.
Others, seeing his Jacket and
his amazing success with women, jumped to the wrong conclusion. Simultaneously, several
students were seen wearing
KB flight jackets. Embarrassed and humiliated at their action, these men retained their
Jackets and formed a fraternity.
Other groups have been organized, but none warranting any

It has been years since I have seen anything
like Broadway this season. There has been flop
after flop, and yet more plans keep coming.
Several weeks ago I thought perhaps that I was
reasonably well acquainted with the state of
Broadway, when all of a sudden a gamlt of new
plays and scheduled openings began to be announced. Now things naturally are really popping.
"Henry, Sweet Henry," what I considered to
be a reasonable success, not because of Don
Ameche, but because of the stunning performances of Alice Playten and Robin Wilson, did
not seem to be quite dazzling enough for the
owners of the Palace Theater. When the leasing contract came due they sort of upped the
cost so that Henry had to close. It would have
been conceivable for It to move to another
theater because It was selling, but I presume
that with the state of busyness, they were unable to find another one. The Palace opened
Tuesday with the "Grand Music Hall of Israel"
which will be there for a limited engagement.
Pearl Bailey, Cab Calloway and the all-Negro
cast of "Hello Dolly" Is bringing ticket sales
above those of Carol Channlng, and has been
claimed to be a smashing success. Spirit runs
high at the Saint James theater, and a standing audience has become almost a ritual for
Pearl as she descends the stairs for the title
number. An opening night the spirit was so good
that when the orchestra started its entrance,
a little girl from the audience came dancing
right down the aisle and onto the stage. Pearl
will be there through December, 1968, if her
health holds, and then the show will close.
Angela Lansbury Is leaving "Mame" on
March 1, an event which Is still causing some
speculation in New York. Her replacement has
not yet been found! Many have felt that perhaps
Auntie Mame herself, Rosalind Russell, might
take the part. When approached, she said that
first of all she had made fame In her original
role, and second of all would not take a second
role. Celeste Holm, who Is now on tour was
suggested as a possibility.
"1 Do, I Do" has changed forces with Carol
Lawrence and Gordon MacRae, the former
matinee stars of this show, taking Martin's
and Preston's part. These two originals are
about to start on the road with this show. "Fiddler on the Roof" with Its new star Harry Goz

slble. He said the University
would "detest and deplore" undercover agents unless they were
informed about their presence.
Thorne stated that there has
been evidence that marijuana has
been sold In two residence halls.
Of the two chief suspects, one
withdrew and one left for academic reasons. He did not know
whether the students knew if
they were being Investigated.
Thorne stated that he agrees with
the present law until enough contrary evidence is presented that
marijuana is not harmful.
One of the other wltnneses,
John Hell man the District Attorney of Dutchess County, staled that he deplored the scare
tactics that were used which
were caused by the "lack of
solid Information as opposed to
false or scare information."
Mr, Kottler said the committee will recommend a bill for an

needed to solve the problem.

Broadhurst on March 13 will be a new comedy,
"Weekend," by Gore Vldal. Steve Lawrence and
Edyle Gorme have opened In a musical "Golden
Rainbow" at the Shubert.
With this unusual mass of shows, I am afraid
that many good ones will be forced to close
because of a lack of audience. Tickets to something are readily available but the big hits continue to be sold out. Huge amounts of money
are being lost, but the New York stage this season Is certainly earning Its name as the theater
capital of the world.

play with Ingrld Bergman, closes March 9
when Bergman leaves, and "Man of LaMancha"
moves uptown from the Anta-Washlngton Square
theater to the Martin Beck on March 19.
Now, about the new shows. Edward Albee's
new play, "Everything In the Garden," certainly has not lived up to previous Albee standards,
and will close on Feb, 10. Melvln Douglas stars

Enjoyable Again
An exhibit of photographs by Klaus Schnitier is now on display in Channing Hall of the

by Dave Bordwell
I Implore you to see Jlrl Menzel's "Closely Watched Trains"
at the earliest possibility. It Is
the most feeling film I have seen
In a long time. Unlike most pictures today, It Is concerned with
realistic people and their problems.
"Closely Watched Trains" is
about Mllos, a boy who becomes
a trainmaster In a Czech village
during World War n . Naive, fragile, with a face reminiscent of
the boy's In Olml's » n Posto,"
he Is Introduced In a comic opening that explains how his uncle
and grandfather were killed In
the war. Now he has become a
tralnwatcher "to shirk work all
my life and to leave all drudgery to other people." The station Is populated by an old man,
an alluring female telegrapher, a crafty Casanova trainmaster, and a henpecked statlonmas.
ter who admonishes the boy: "You
can have your fun, but duty must
always come first."
And for Mllos It does. The
fine trainman's cap that Is placet! so reverently on his head at
the story's beginning remains
there as a reminder of the demands of duty. But the trainmaster's wholesale seduction of
women and the lechery of a pride
of soldiers remind him of his
Inexperience wlthglrls.Depressed after he has awkwardly spurned a cute girl train conductor,
lie slashes Ms wrists; and suddenly the comedy sticks In our
throats. From the hospital he returns to the station In disgrace.
lint the sympathetic trainmaster arranges a rendezvous, and
polling the cap off Mllos' head,
pushes him Into a room alone
with a woman for a night.
With the film's characteristically abrupt shift of mood, there
comes a twist. The trainman Is
In the Czech Underground, and
draws Mllos Into his plan to slip
a bomb aboard one of the closeI: -guarded trains that are vital
to the Fuhrer's cause. The tari,"t train is due when an official
'' the train company arrives to
! i vestigate the trainman's amai <ry activities. Mllos sneaks out
and drops the bomb aboard the
I ...islng train; he Is shot by a
c a r d and dies. The train explodes; Mllos' cap clows away;
loncusslons shake the station;
tho officials rage; (clock chimes

This final sequence capsul'.?.na the film's mixture of comedy and pathos. The Juxtaposition Is not as Jarringly zany

eye, human insincerity, and even
war movies of the 40s with sensitivity and Impact."
"Primer" Is now In Its 25th
year of publication and its fiction and poetry all reflect the
modernity of the magazine.
The poem by William Schaeffer perhaps best reflects the
disillusionment with Society. The
poem Is short and terse, and
Schaeffer concludes it with a
three word line which would lose
all Its Impact If It were any
In the "Campus Ode" by Jean
Thompson, the author skillfully
compares the modern buildings
to those of Athens, reflecting
not only Its beauty but also the
"foreshadow of unbelng." However, the author switches In midstream from the beauty of the
building's forms to the beauty of
the female students' forms and
the final Image Is Incongruous
to the Images In the beginning of
the poem.
"Sheepskin" by Babs Brlndlsl
beautifully depicts the pursuing
of a goal. The first stanza contains mostly short words, giving
the reader the stop and go effect of running.
"A Rainy Evening's Walk" by
J. Glllman contains an extremely skillful use of dark and light
themes. The poem begins with'
the dark Image ("dark pavement
at night") switches to one of light
and finally returns "towards that
great dark Infinity that It was
surely born of."
Robert B. Cutty's poem, "Meditations On The Gentle Motion Of
The Passing Rainstorm," begins
with the simple question "what
do you think of the weather we're
having?" and ends with sleeping
pills, cigarette smoke and pot.
The poem Is definitely well
thought out but it does not take
the reader long to realize that
the "weather" is just another
word for the present state of affairs. However, the constant use
of "says I" and "says you" Is
so distracting that the reader Is
only capable of "asthmatic whispers" at the end of this rather
long poem.
Mary Ellen Barrett's best work
Is the poem "Mon Ami." All
her works tends to be similar
and after reading one poem or
short story by her, one can
easily recognize her style. The
poem Is an excellent character
study, showing a deep perception
of character. The words were not
Just put down on paper, but were
thought out. Such a phrase as
"gentle tender smile" proves
that the author sweated to achieve
each word and the final effect
Is excellent.
The last poem, "Totality" by
Carol Isaac, takes a rather prosaic Idea and phrases It extremely well. "If within the fitness of man's stay on earth
he cannot bring Joy to someone
other than himself, he should
crawl back Into the cave from
whence he came." This Is most
appropriate to end "Primer,"
because It Is bound to bring
some Joy to all Its readers and
the big 25th anniversary Issue
will be eagerly awaited.

Olympic Day Soon,
APADefend s Grown
by Duncan Nixon
Associate Sports Editor
This University Is rapidly growing and improving,
and as It does so, it i s hoped that the sports program's
development will keep pace. Present developments indicate that such may very well be the case. Central
Council has already passed the budget for a sailing
club, that will be starting this spring, with both home
and away Regattas, and Central Council will soon be
presented with a proposed lacrosse club budget, which
If passed, will mean that lacrosse will be starting next
Although the prospects of our having football in the
near future have been dimmed by the state legislature's
cutting back on the hiring of new coaches, there still
is plenty of room for development. Our new gym which
is already being used for practice (by the basketball
and wrestling teams, and by the new swimming club)
provides excellent facilities to start from.
One good Indication that expansion is taking place, is
the fact that the schedules for almost all sports are
slowly being stepped up. The cross country team faced
a strong field In the Albany Invitational this fall, and
they have scheduled Colgate for next season. The soccer
team Is taking on powers like Bridgeport, the basketball
team has moved up, via its opening tournament, and the
wrestling team i s also facing an increasingly difficult
schedule. And the same will probably be true of the
spring sports. Such acceleration is not easy for the
further up the university moves in caliber of opposition,
the more it has to face teams of composed scholarship
The best indication of the direction that the University
will take with regards to its athletic policy, may very
well come from the University Athletic Council's report
to the President which will be delivered on April 1.
The report will probably include recommendations on
football and other sports that might be Initiated in the
future and it will also include proposals for future
scheduling and on the possibilities of future conference
membership. It seems quite likely that this report will
reflect the trend toward expansion and growth which is
mentioned above, and it is certainly hoped that if such
is the case, appropriate action will be taken to enact
such proposals.

One other development that also Indicates the current
trend toward growth, is the recent establishment of preliminary contacts with other area schools on the subject
of extramurals. Such a program could easily tend to
elevate the sports involved to the level of clubs, thus
besides promoting competition between area schools,
which could conceivably be the forerunner of the development of varsity teams in the sports involved.

Frosh Cagers Fall
Jordan Has 34,30
by Joel Volinski
If one thing can be said for
the freshman basketball team, It
Is that It doesn't quit when behind. However, that may be all
that can be said for them. Although the frosh came back from
huge deficits In their games agalnst Junior College of Albany
and Oneonta, they still could not
pull them out. Their record now
stands at 2-9.
The J.C.A. game wasn't a good
one for either club. Both teams
shot poorly and played sloppily.
The ridiculously low 32-16 halftime score Is evidence enough.
J.C.A, jumped to an 11-0 lead
quickly, but the frosh refused to
rush their game or play catchup ball. Using a deliberate brand
of ball, Albany prevented the
game from getting out of hand
and actually controlled the game
the rest of the half.
In the second half, J.C.A, started to hit from the floor and expanded their lead to 23 points
with only six minutes left. Albany, using the full court press,
and behind the phenomenal shooting of Jack Jordan who gunned in
32 points In the second half alone,
knocked the lead to only 9 with
three minutes remaining. However, J.C.A. regained their composure and went on to win 70-57,
Swimmers inGym
2 Meets On Tap
Albany State's newly formed
swimming and diving
club is now practicing dally from
four to six in the new pool. Despite the almost palatial atmosphere provided by the new
facilities Coach Kelley presently has only 14 swimmers.
The team is badly In need of
qualified backstroke and butterfly swimmers, and anyone interested in these events should
report as soon as possible in
view of the fact that the swimming club has two meets coming
up in' the near future.
The squad will travel to New
Paltz February 14 for an evening
meet, and then will travel to
Harpur Saturday March 2 for an
afternoon meet,
The Oneonta game followed
quite the same pattern. Once,
again, because of poor shooting, rebounding and lazy defense,
the frosh were down 44-24 at the
half. And once again, using the
press, Albany came to within 7
points with nine minutes left.
From this point, It was a combination of foul trouble,
officiating, poor rebounding and
finally, hot shooting by the
Oneonta frosh which kept them
on top and led to a final score
of 89-75. Jordan once again led
Albany in scoring as he peppered
in 30 points. Les "Big Wayne"
Newmark hit for 15, HowleSmlth
14, Joel Volinski 8 and Jim
Doyle 6.

Hobart in a preliminary to the

Sports Editor
A person often doesn't realize what's happening
until. it has happened. I have learned a lot as sports
editor,- but unfortunately I have learned through retrospect. My main desire as sports editor has been
to aid In improving any and all activities related to
the athletic program at this university. I was privileged to possess the instrument necessary in making
the university community aware of these activities.
Whether I have used this instrument well is questionable, but I do feel that all praise given was deserved
while ail criticism was sincere.
Originally, I pictured the athletic administration
as well as the school administration as being the
roadblock to the expansion of the university sports
program. By looking back at the Improved sports
program, and by looking ahead at the future sports
program, I realize my error. Not enough can be said
concerning Dr. Werner's unending efforts at making
sports at this university equal to its academic rating. President Collins too has been an advocate of
an expanding sports program.
Expansion Is, as*It is In professional sports, the
key word in a description of the university athletic
program. The faculty has grown In the past three
years with an excellent crop of young sports mentors. Our track will be ready in the spring. Soccer,
cross-country and baseball are on the new campus.
Our long awaited gym will soon be ready. The basketball team has practiced there; the swimming pool
Is finished; a wrestling match is scheduled to be
held there, tomorrow I Swimming, track and field,
and fall baseball have been added to the schedules. A
most successful cross-country invitational has been inaugurated, while a wrestling tourney has been continued.
Schools larger than all the Podunc States we are used
to playing have been added to the sports schedules.
Scholarship limitations are the only things which separate this university from big-time prestige.
It is with great pleasure that I may admire this
university's athletic growth, and it is with great regret that I pass down this tool of communication. I
am confident, however, that Dune Nixon's craftmanship can aid in molding this university's greatly
expanding program.
Grapplers' Victory
by Tom Nixon
During the past week, the Great
Danes wrestling team recorded
its first victory, but also suffered Its fourth defeat of the season.
On Tuesday, the grapplers
traveled to Brooklyn Poly where
they gained a 33-10 decision.
On Saturday, however, they were
defeated by Plattsburgh by a
score of 25.8. As a result of
these two matches, their record
now stands at one win and four
In amounting 33 points against
Brooklyn, the Great Danes gained six pins and one decision. Roger Gorham recorded the fastest
pin as he forced the shoulders
of his opponent to the mats In 1:30.
BUI Russell, who was replac.
lng the Injured Eric Watts In the
123-pound division, started the
match with a pin as he put his
man away In 2:42. Alex Domkowskl, who was also wrestling for
the first time, followed Russell
victory with a 4-1 decision over
Culllgan of Brooklyn. Bill Clark,
In the 130 weight class, raised
his season record to 3-1 as he
galned'a forfeit victory.
The next three weight divisions
were all won by pins for Albany
as Fran Weal pinned Abraml In
1:55 In the 145-pound division,
Craig springer put away Mayer
In 6:20 at 152 pounds, and Frank
Berry defeated Dancak by pinning him In 5:40. At 167, Marshall Gladstone suffered the only

Gorham then finished out the
scoring for Albany with his pin.
At the heavyweight division, Albany forfeited as Roger Saul,
who was at the spot transferred at the end of the first semester.
Against Plattsburgh, the only
winners for Albany were Bill
Clark and Roger Gorham who

the new gymnasium.
Danes Win Skein At Nine;
Hobart Here Tomorrow
by Dan Opptdlsano
With a possible NCAA berth
waiting In the wings, the highflying Albany State Great Dane
basketeers, their win streak now
at nine, are home for the first
Urn* in a month tomorrow night
against always tough Hobart College at 8:30 p.m. at the Cardinal
McCloskey High School gymnasium.
ID games since last writing,
the Purple and Gold has upped
Its record 'to 12-3, defeating In
succession Southern Connecticut,
88-80; HIT, 103-86; Stony Brook,
64-52; Potsdam, 74-63; and Harpur College, 75-60; lastTuesday,
the 200th win In Coach Dr. Richard Sauers' Illustrious thirteen
year career.
Due to the Installation of the
bleachers, the new gym will not
be ready to hold any home games
this season. Consequently, the
Siena game which was originally
scheduled for Saturday, February
17, has now been moved back to
Monday, the 19th at 8:00 p.m.
Hobart comes into the Albany
game with a deceiving 5-7 record.
Losers of three games by three
points or less, the men from
Geneva, N.Y. are led by 6*6,'
sophomore Carmen Genovese
who Is currently averaging over
22 points a game. Terry Hatmaker, a 6'4" Junior Is Hobart's
second leading point producer
at 17.4 ppg.
But the main attraction, as
usual, will be the shooting ability
and aggressiveness of the Danes,
currently averaging 83.3 points
a game as compared to 73.3 for
Its opponents. Rich Marglson,
Albany's bonaflde Little AllAmerica, leads his team in scoring at 22.2 ppg. The 6'1" Junior
dominates the area's major college statistics In that he leads
the area In scoring and Is second
In field goal percentage, free
throw percentage, and rebounding.
Backing up Marglson in the
Albany attack Is Scott Price, who
is the area's no. 1 rebounder
(10.7 a game) besides ripping
the cords at 16.7 a contest.
Jim "Super Sub" Caverly's
play has also been a big help in
the recent Dane drive. Caverly
leads area scorers In field goal
percentage (.559) and has come
off the bench consistently to spark
late drives. In the Potsdam game
last Saturday, the 6' Junior tallied
12 of Albany's 13 points within
five minutes as the locals widened their margin over the Bears
from two-points to eleven. Jim
finished the evening with 18
markers, hitting on nine of 12
field goal attempts and grabbing
13 rebounds.
However, it has been Margl-

When questioned on whether
or not a student caught using
narcotics on campus would be
reported to the civil authorities,
Thome replied, "Yes." He continued by citing as an examplean
Incident which had occurred.
Last year there were several
student complaints about narcotic
users. The University staff explored all possibilities to discover the facts, but was unable
to solve the dilemma. 'Then,
and only then, we called in the

The narcotics experts were
unable to catch "the two people"
concerned in the act. However,
during the Investigation one flunked out and the other dropped out.
Dr. Thorne continued by pointing out that if an R.A. found
marijuana in a room, he must
report it to his superior, who In
turn would contact civil authorities.
"If we see illegal activity, we
must do something about It,"
Thorne reiterated. However, he
went further to declare that "No
undercover agent will be allowed
on this campus without the approval of the Faculty and Student governments. This measure
would only be taken If the situation became severe."
Comments were also made by
Dr. Thorne concernlngtherecent

Chancellor Speaks
On Dope, Athletics
SAMUEL B. GOULD, Chancellor of the State University of
New York system, spoke to the presidents of the student
governments of University system colleges last week, on
narcotics, athletics and student tax.
"Students just don't care about
their student government. Fear
of Involvement," said Douglas
Upham,'Is a major factor contributing to Inactivity In government."
"Even wltliln student government people will give up some of
the power they can exorcise."
"Students are not really that
concerned oven about things they
agree with." Upham used Women's Hours and the liquor policy
to Illustrate his statement. He
said those policies were given
Impetus by the administration
and upper echelons of Central
Council, not by the students themselves.
Speaking at the seminar on
student rights Sunday, Upham
brought out the point that the
rules of conduct, as explained In
Student Guidelines, are not
specific enough.
In reference to the Waterbury

boys, he said that perhaps spedflc rules concerning student behavior might have been bene-

Chancellor Gould met with the
Student Association Presidents
of the four university centers
and representatives of the four
year colleges and Community colleges on Feb. 15, Thursday, at
his home In Albany, discussing
this Issue.
Expressing concern over the
ramifications that the raid might
have on the growth and expansion
of the entire University system,
he cited two prime Issues emerging.
One problem is the question of
whether the University Is making
it difficult for law enforcement
agencies to Investigate those

approved a new election bill and

ficial in preventing such a case.
Vice President of Student Affairs, Clifton C. Thorne, said
that if you enumerate some tilings
specifically, you may leave out
others just as Important. For this
reason general or fundamental
rules are more encompassing.
Thorne also said that general
rules offer more flexibility and
room for snoclfic Interpretation
of Individual cases,
Dick Jankowsky, President of
Forum of Politics, felt that the
legal position of the University
should he clarified. He said that
the student may consider the University In loco parentis.
This, he Implied, may be one
of the reasons on-campus students do not have as many rights
as those off campus, "It Is only
recently that the on-campus student Is coming to enjoy some of
the rights of the off-campus students,
In reference to this point
Thorne said that the University
is responsible (to the State) for
what happens on campus.
Jankowsky explained that an

In the new bill, the Myskanla
screening committee was enlarged to Include the chairman
of Pan Hellenic Council and the
chief justice of the Supreme
Court. All Juniors were eliminated from the committee In the
new bill Including the President
of the Junior Class.
A person who is recognized
as the equivalent of a second
semester Junior by the University, who is participating in an
affiliated program of study at
another university, may run for
MYSKANIA providing he pays
his student tax for the semesters
In Who's Who elections, first
semester transfers and freshmen cannot vote. The screening
committee for Who's Who is
similar to that of MYSKANIA
except that the President of the
Junior Class Is Included and
all seniors are eliminated from
the committee.
The new bill includes a provision that LAAC elections will
be regulated under the same
conditions as Council elections,
LAAC and the other commissions are given total autonomy
In determining the composition
of their boards.
The new bill also provides
for replacement and run-off elections and write-in votes (except in MYSKANIA and Who's
Who elections whore write-ins
are invalid.) In the case of writeins, no candidate shall be considered elected until Election
Commission certifies that he
meets the qualifications

The election procedures go
into great detail concerning the
duties and responsibilities of
Election Commission, self nominating procedures, and the composition, printing, distribution,
collecting and storage of ballots.
They allow for the use of computerized ballots and voting ma-
chines. The procedures Involved
in voting, staff, processing of
voters and tabulation are spelled out In detail.
In the case of Irregularities
the Commission may ask the
Supreme Court or a lower court
with sufficient Jurisdiction to invalidate an election and mandate
a new one. The Commission by
a 2-3 vote of its membership
may also ask Council to censure an individual for Interfering with an election.
The election bill Is the first
by-law of Student Association and
thus requiring a2—3vote of Council for amendment or repeal.
The election bill was Introduced as a by-law In order to give
tho Supreme Court ' broader
Jurisdiction when deciding cases
of constitutionality. This problem was noted by President Jeffrey Mlshkln, the chairman of
the Ad-hoc Judiciary Committee, during their deliberations
duals outside the University that
already existing University regulations are not being enforced.
This not only Includes the use
of marijuana, LSD and narcotics
on campus, but also the violation of other University prohibited activities. Although Important, he felt that the Issue of
marijuana on campus Is now a
consideration. Of
more immediacy and seriousness
is the threat of financial penalties In the form of cuts in University budgets.This will severely limit University growth and
expansion, according to Chancellor Gould, at a very crucial
Under the pressures of Investigation by a Legislative committee Chancellor Gould believes these questions
first be answered. Public pressure Is also present.
Attending the meeting, Jeffrey
Mlshkln, president of Student
Association on campus, stated
that Chancellor Gould believed
firmly In local autonomy of
each University center. He further stated that It has been Chancellor Gould's attempt to give
each University center discretion in making decisions. The
central office serving primarily
as an Instrument of distributing
general guidelines for policy.
Student participation in formulating policy was cited by
Mlshkln as a second goal of
Chancellor Gould. But recent
events at stonybrook have seriously challenged both of these
goals. Both the public and state
legislature may now question the
validity of these goals.
Mlshrln also cited that the issue of marijuana and narcotics
on campus Is still an Important
issue. But, in concurrence with
Chancellor Gould, he believes the
priority of questions concerning
the possibility of the hindrance
of law enforcers by the University must be considered first.
Also present Is the question dealing with the possibility of laxity In enforcing already existing University regulations.
The dangers of a breakdown
in communication between the
University Community and the
outside community must be
avoided, according to Mlshkln.
