TAX NOW
The mandatory payment of Student Tax was passed in
last week's elections by a vote of 826 to 609. Terry
Mathias, Vice-President of Student Association, naturally
expressed pleasure at the outcome and also at the number
of students who turned out to vote.
In the elections of May 1, 2, and 3,1968, 434 students
went to the polls, as compared with 1444 who voted this
fall.
Mathias stated that the next step is to finalize the
procedures for collection of the tax. Planning that has
been going on for the past three weeks is now nearing
completion.
There will also be a small reduction in the price of the
Student Tax Card, but Mathias hopes that the reduction
can be made larger.
In the case of a student in extreme financial need, the
student fee will either be waived or reduced. The final
decision is now in the hands of the Financial Aids Office.
MANDATORY
Two additional measures will increase income to the
Student Association. Members of the faculty can purchase
tax cards (on a voluntary basis, of course), and the card
will be transferable for the purchaser's entire family.
There will also be a married students' tax card. If both
spouses are students at the University, they will be
entitled to a reduction in Student Tax, If one spouse is a
student here and purchases a tax card, the other spouse
may also purchase a card, but at an increased rate.
Mathias also said, "I'd like to thank all the people who
worked on the election, all the election assistants who
worked at the polls, and all the students who came out to
vote." He also stated that the number voting "shows that
the students are beginning to care about their elections
and indicates a change in the feeling of the student body."
Also last week, the following students were elected to
seats on Central Council: from State Quad, Edward Weiss
and Lynn . Wilson; from Dutch Quad, Douglas
Goldschmidt and Nancy Mosher; from Alumni Quad,
Gregory Spear and Kenneth Stokem; and from
commuters, David Cummings and Suzl Goldmacher.
Elected to LAAC were: Susan Bryan, Claudette
Ouiment, Lynn Wilson, and Frann Wolfe from State
Quad; Robert Burstein, Marc Rosenberg, and Kenneth
Stokem from ^lumni Quad; and Michael Cohen, Carl
Shapiro, and Andrew Zambelli of the commuters.
Voting for presidential preference* was as follows:
Humphrey-298; Nixon-133; Wallace-14. "No" vote*
totalled 256, Among senatorial preferences, the voting
was: O'Dwyer-307; Javits-293; Buckley -52. The number
of "no" votes was 33.
On the Pueblo issue, 422 students voted "yes," while
232 voted "no." This was not considered passed, however,
since the necessary 10% of the student body did not
express an opinion on the issue.

Waterbury Defeats UFS
In League I Competition
by Dave Fink
Waterbury Hall and UFS met
Tuesday in a game which,
although it did not drastically
alter the league standings,
apparently meant quite a bit \.o
both teams.
UFS received, but on their
second play from scrimmage,
quarterback Denny Richardson's
pass was alertly intercepted by
Barry Friedman of Waterbury.
The men from downtown, getting
the ball deep in UFS territory
could not score, UFS taking over
on downs. They did not hold onto
the ball long, however, as a bad
snap from center flew over
Richardson's head and out of the
end zone for a safely. Thus,
Waterbury led 2-0 at the end of
the first quarter.
The ball changed hands three
times before Waterbury drove
deep into UFS territory. UFS held
on their own three yard line and
not being able to mount a drive,
attempted a punt from their own
end zone. The kick was blocked
and was fallen on by u big
Waterbury lineman for a safety,
upping their lead to 4-0.
Waterbury received the free
kick and promptly registered a
touchdown on a long pass from
quarterback Pete Monte to split
end Dave Kutel. Waterbury now
led 10-0. UFS did not give up,
bouncing right back with a bomb
of their own from quarterback
Richardson to Bob Yusko, thus
putting UFS back in the game,
10-6 at half time.
The second half showed both
teams unable to sustain a drive,
the only scoring being a sulely

The Draft: This year, the Senator introduced a bill to Congress to change our antiquated draft laws. In part, it
would give us a lottery system. One which would subject
a man to the draft for only one year. Instead of eight.
The Cities: Senator Javits is the man who founded the
Student Coalition for Urban Action. A group that will
become directly involved in solving the problems of our
problem-ridden cities.
The future of America will soon be in your hands. Yet
many of you, too young to vote, feel that your hands are
tied. Senator Javits disagrees. If you're old enough to
have an opinion, if you're old enough to speak out, then
you're old enough to work for a man who shares your
opinions and who will speak out with you.
If you'd like to know more about Senator Javits' accomplishments of the past and plans for the future, you can.

In mentioning the Pueblo
incident, Nixon made it clear tha:
it is time for a chunge. He charged
that present government cannot
cope with a "fourth rate nation,"
as North Korea, and return
American soldi ers to their
country.
He proposed a new foreign
policy that would end the war in
Vietnam and prevent future wars
of that kind.
Nixon stated that the US
cannot and should not carry the
heavy responsibilities in the world
that it now carries. He feels that
the other countries of the world
should share the responsibilities,
and this would bring the US new
respect.
If elected President, Nixon
believes he can bring law and
order to the country by forming a
new academy that will teach
police officers better methods of
law enforcement and by waging
an all out war against crime in the
US.
Nixon talked briefly about
social security benefits, telling the
people that in his administration,
as prices go up, so will social
security.
However, he believes that he
can stop the inflation that is now
taking place and also stop the rise
in prices of material goods so that
a dollar earned today will buy the
same amount of goods five years
from now.
In dealing with the issue of
education, Nixon mentioned that
he would create a new program
that would improve the quality
and increase the quantity of
education, and also raise the
teacher's salaries.
Under a Nixon administration,
students who disobey university
authority would not be allowed to
attend the university.

Nixon Pleads For Support
H H H Predicts Nixon Defeat
By United Press International
Richard M. Nixon pleaded
Monday with the natio 's voters
Tor "more than a plurality of
popular support." His former
boss, Dwight D. Eisenhower,
agreed that "the size of the
victory
will
be
of
great
importance to the future of our
country."
Meantime, there were predictions from Gov. Harold E.
Hughes
of
Iowa
and
a
Democratic leader in California
that Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy
would soon endorse Humphrey.
McCarthy, w h o was placed in
nomination at the Democratic
National Convention by Hughes,
has refused so far to back the
vice president.
Nixon, campaigning in New
York and Pennsylvania, told an
Albany audience he would need
"more
than a plurality
of
popular support" to heal deep
national ruptures.

The students were divided into
several groups upon admission to
the program, each group receiving

and
developmental work needed to
begin acutal college life.
The
first group, composed
mostly of students from the
Albany-Troy Schenectady area,
lived on campus from June 28
through August 9. The students
received
special
courses
in
developmental English, math and
reading.
The second group of tity-eight
students included about forty
students recruited from Job Corps
Centers around the nation. They
resided on campus from August <1
to September 9, and took courses
similar to the first gr 'Up.
Thirty-five
students,
constituting a third group, were
admitted
through
EOP, but
presented credentials very similar
to those in the freshman class.
Therefore, although they attended
one of the Summer Planning
Conferences,
they
took
no
developmental courses.
Thirty students, composing the
fourth group, are residing at the
University
and are
presently
taking one or two developmental
courses. They will begin actual
classes

designed to recruit approximately
thirty students a year for a

"A strong, clear m a n d a t e hopefully including a Republican

to "deal with dissension and

by M.J, Romberg
To the Editor:
I think that it is unfortunate
that what Mr. Rosenberg writes in
his a r t i c l e s can be easily
misconstrued and misunderstood
by the general reader.
The October 18 article is an
excellent example. It is my
interpretation
t h a t Mr.
Rosenberg's statement that during
World War II Poland "joined the
victorious master eagerly" should
be taken in the entire context of
the article. Thus the above
statement does not mean that the
Poles welcomed a Nazi invasion
and
d o m i n a t i o n of their
homeland, but that once the Nazis
were there to stay the Polish
people eagerly joined the master in
the extermination of Poland's
three million Jews.
Poland had previously had a
long history of virulent and
vitriolic anti-Semitism. In the
early years of the Polish republic
(in the 1920's) there were horrible
massacres of Jews throughout the
country followed by a mass
attempt at exclusion of Jews from
business and commerce without
any new resulting employment
such as in agriculture. All of this
caused an incredible poverty—in a
number of cases even starvation.
These actions were condoned by
t h e government under such
anti-Semitic leaders as General
Pilsudski and Marshal Smigly, and
sanctioned by the Church as well.
It is reasonable to say that a
main factor in the Nazi
e s t a b l i s h m e n t of the main
concentration camps such as
Aushwitz and Treblinka for the
total liquidation of the Jews in
Poland, was the altitude of the
Polish people in general to the
Jews. Even the underground did
nothing to help the people such as
in the Warsaw ghetto. General
Bor- Komorowski's army was
made up largely of the reactionary
and totally anti-Semitic National
Democrats, a major political party
of the period.
A classic example of the lack of
Polish help for the Jewish victims
is i.hu Warsaw ghetto uprising. In
this case, the Jewish partisans
received no material support from
the Polish government-in-exile, no
help from Komorowski and only a
bare amount from the Communist
underground. The Soviet Union
sent bags of grain by air which
broke when they hit the ground.
Their effort was nothing more
than a propaganda gesture,
There was another army in
Poland not even mentioned by
Mr. Pietrusza, Narodowe Sily
Zbrojne of the National Radicals
which has been strongly accused
of deliberately working with the
Nazis in the extermination of
Jews.

Eastern Europe did not aid in Ine
wholesale butchering of their
Sews. Rumania worked hard to
send its million Jews to the gas
chambers. Today Rumania has a
thriving Jewish community with
18 synagogues in Bucharest alone.
Premier Ceausescu has given the
chief rabbinate virtual antonomy
and allowed a practice of ritual.
In Poland, Premier Gomulka
and General Moczar, the Interior
minister are busy purging Jews
from various state controlled
professions.

Candidates'
Role
Student government elections have, in the past,
followed a more or less standard procedure.
Candidates submit their names, put up their
posters, and, with the aid of their many friends,
become elected officials of the entire Student
Association
residence halls, and all seemed at peace with the
University.
But at the same time, a minor revolt of sorts
was arising. At State Quad, an area totally devoid
ot Ureek influence, thirty six students had
indicated their willingness to serve in the capacity
A dilemma arises when a Freshman or a transfer
student decides to run for office. He has no
established backing, and knows too few people he
can pressure into voting as a bloc for him. In the
past, a candidate in a position like this would win

posters, or because his name was at the top of the
ballot.
of representative to either LAAC or Central
Council. In the interest of meaningful elections, il
was decided that the candidates should actually
confront their constituents.
"And so it came to pass" that on the Tuesday
prior to elections the candidates were required to
state, in no uncertain terms, what they stood for.
To an audience of varying size (generally, 40-60
students) at various times, each candidate
espoused his beliefs. There was no great
controversy; all were in favor of abolishing
inequalities and creating new, exciting ideas.
But this is not the point. It is, rather, that for
perhaps the first time in years, candidates were
required t o present their views to the
electorate-they were subject to the questions of
their peers-and they had to make an effort to
clearly delineate their positions.
If there has been one major failing of the
Student Government elections, it is the failure to
evoke discussion of the issues (which do exist).
Presently, all candidates profess to the few
students to whom they speak, that they will work
for the student as HIS representative, but no one
ever mentions how or in what way he will do this.
Without a somewhat meaningful discussion of
issues in an election, all we have is a popularity
contest, and nothing more. Supposedly, by the
time we reach our college years, we have grown
out of the stage of voting for someone simply
because we know him vaguely. It is at this time
that we are supposed to begin to select our
candidates for their stands on the issues and their
approach to problems not because "he's an
alright guy."

1968-69 look place. This year the elections

OBSERVATIONS
Texas, and California write-in
campaigns have been organized in
behalf of Senator McCarthy.
For those who believe firmly in
the two party system and view
these events with dismay, it might
be well to look into possible
causes of this trend.
In his 196*1 campaign for the
Presidency, Barry Goldwater
claimed he would offer the
American people "a choice, not
an echo." Now many people feel
t h a t the Republican and
Democratic parties are offering
nothing more than an echo.
Rightly or wrongly, many do
think that it will make little or no
difference whether Richard Nixon
or Hubert Humphrey occupies the
White House for the next four
years. They are seen as holding
similar views and probably
conducting like policies.
For whatever reason, and
certainly there are many, the rise
of minor parties must be
considered a sign of dissatisfaction
with the major parties and their
alternatives or lack of alternatives.
These
parties
presently
represent no more than small
minorities, but by the same token
these minorities apparently do
represent enough people in order
"It is our wish to remind you
that the" office of the Presidency
must be fdled by a man who has
both raw ability and leadership
quality.
"By raw ability we mean a
President who can both conceive
of policy and produce it in the
form of concrete law or program.
By the quality of leadership, we
mean no concrete policy, but
rather a policy of mind, an art of
embracing greatness and idealism,
and an inspiration to national
unity. Both factors must be
inherent in the man who sits in
the White House.
"On this basis we conducted
t w o surveys ranking voter
opinions on a leadership quality
scale and an ability expectancy
scale. One survey was nationwide,
the other polled college voters.
'' The college voters ranked
Humphrey high on the ability
scale but low on the leadership
scale. Nixon proved to be
mediocre on both indices.
"This was interesting because
the nationwide study showed
virtually the opposite: Nixon
ranked high on leadership quality
and roughly middle on the ability
s c a l e ; while Humphrey was
mediocre on both factors.
"This clearly meant that when
the nation says it wants "change,"
it means a change in the quality of
leadership, not so much in ability.
The college study showed that
those voters agreed with the
public on Humphrey's lack of
leadership, but disagreed on
whether Nixon could fill the
vacuum.
"With this crystallized we can
now suggest a way for students to
v o t e . They can vote for
Humphrey because his ability
expectancy is high; or they can
reconsider both candidates in
terms of leadership quality.
Then, when they balance the
Nixon leadership-plus with the
Humphrey ability-plus, they will
probably decide, along with this

As relatively small groups, they
also are usually unable to elect
their candidates to public office.
What these parlies have managed
to do, however, has been to draw
enough support away from a given
major party candidate, so that in
the event of a close race they can
prevent the election of that
person.

interesting
questions and possible problems
for furture elections. Will plurality

majority rule is to be maintained

strength, will the United States go
tho way of the French Fifth
Republic, and go to a system of
run-off elections in tho event no
candidate receives a majority?
The future
is, a t best,
uncertain. Perhaps minor parties
will continue to come and go, as
they have in the past. Perhaps, for
whatever reasons, these parties
will grow in strong th In either
event, they should be taken
seriously in tho future of

Challenging Ideas In Sound
by Alan Latkar
A challenge faces contemporary
music groups—to produce music
that not only stimulates but
activates its audience. "The Fifth
Dimension" accomplishes this
task and continually lives up to its
reputation
of b e i n g a
distinguished musical group.
Last February, "The Fifth
Dimension" climbed the hierarchy
of the musical performing ladder
and attained a position as a top
vocal group. Their rendition of
"Up, Up and Away" won four
Grammy Awards from the
Academy of Recording Arts and
Sciences for the Best Record of
the Year, Best Performance of a
Vocal Group, Best Contemporary
Single and Best Contemporary
Group Performance.
"The Fifth Dimension", before
combining their talents into one,
showed diversified interests
Marilyn McCoo's singing career,
"which began before she could
walk," was highlighted by her
appearance on Art Linkletter's
Talent Scouts when she was
fifteen. The other female member,
Florence Larue, taught school
before joining the group. Both
females were beauty contest
winners. Ron Townson worked
his way through
Lincoln

and church choirs. Bill Davis Jr.
has sung with rock as well as

The program, titled "Protest

being offered to colleges and

challenging to young Americans,

"Protest and Politics" offers a
variety of comment on the faults

attitudes. Among the six films
included in the program are
several
which have won
international acclaim and awards in
such competitions as the Tokyo

"Hey Stop That," by Robert

next, is a masterful production of

introspective ballad, written and

two songs on this side, are both
Robertson's. "Caledonia Mission,"
demonstrates better than any
other song on the album the use
of an undercutting chorus, a
familiar building tool to the old
country artist. The final number
on side one, is "The Weight,"
which was released as a single by a
Stax artist. It is one of the
grittiest songs I've ever heard. As
you listen, you can feel the days
of hardships, and the miles of
lonely roads that the Band must
have lived.
Side two of the album is not
just more of side one_J it is another
experience each time one listens
to it. "We Can Talk," by Manuel,
is a song of the American way, a
modern ballad. "Long Black
Veil," is given a unique treatment,
as the Band seems to reminisce
the old days of sitting around and
singing because it was fun. The
next song, "Chest Fever," written
by Robertson, demonstrates the
musical genius of the group. A
swelling organ overtakes your
senses, while in the meantime the
variety, and originality of the
band takes you to everything that
is new in music. "Lonesome
Suzie," written and sung by
Manuel, is touching, as a ballad of
a lost love. The final two
compositions christen the album
with greatness. The first, "This
Wheel's On Fire," (Julie Driscoll
released it as a single) is Dylan all
over, as is the final song, also
written by Dylan, "I Shall Be

The Albany State soccer team registered both a victory and a defeat this past week as they defeated
Utica College 6-2 on Teusday and lost to Rochester Institute of Technology on Saturday by a score of 3-0.
Albany's record now stands at two wins, five losses and one tie.
The soccer team's final game is this Saturday as they travel to Stony Brook in search of their third win of
the season.
In registering a win over Utica, Albany was led by sophomore Ron Spratt, who managed the amazing feat
of scoring four times during the
game.
Ron was given the game bail for
his outstanding performance.
Albany completely dominated
the game as Utica never really
threatened until the outcome of
the game had already been
determined.
Spratt, who played at the
outside wing position, scored
three of his four goals in the
second half against the porous
Utica defense.

APA Defeats Potter9
Continues In First
by Dave Fink
Two games were played last
week which had an important
bearing on the League I standings.
Potter Club, usually a division
power, fell to APA 19-6, and
Tappan, making a strong bid for
the championship, defeated KB
9-0.
APA and Potter took the field
on Thursday in what promised to
be a tough game due to the rivalry
that exists between the two clubs.
Such was not the case. Potter was
unable to move the ball
effectively. Their receivers could
not hang onto the ball the few
times quarterback Jim Waibel was
able to get it to them.
APA, on the other hand, put on
probably their finest offensive
show of the year. After being held
on their first drive, they moved
downfield seemingly at will. After
three c o m p l e t i o n s
from
quarterback Gary Torino to Bob
Wood and some fine running,
Torino arched a long touchdown
pass to tight end Danny Elkin for
the touchdown. APA led 7-0.
In the second quarter, Torino
again was on target. His fine
running and passing to flanker
Lance Brofsky and Wood resulted
in a touchdown when he found
Brofsky free in the end zone
making the score 13-0. An
interception by Jack Fairbank of
APA gave them the ball again and
Torino wasted no time to Wood,
who had again penetruted the
porous Potter secondary, for the
score.
A final touchdown by Potter's
Danny Wykoff, making the final
score 19-6, averted the shutout
and was the first score allowed by
APA all year.
Tappan and KB met Saturday
with each team needing a win to
keep their title hopes alive.

the runners was graphically illustrated. Both Don Beevers and Pal
Gepfert passed opponents in the final 200 yards to barely squeeze out
the victory.
The second

Albany Invitational further exemplified
the
runners' fierce competitiveness. Although they were outpointed by
Boston Stale whom they beat in a dual meet, the harriers were able to
overcome C.W. Post who not only had the first place winner, but also
had another runner in the first ten finishers.

The

But
American

announced
while
Johnson
was
speaking
that North
Vietnam
understands that the bombing
halt would be b r o k e n if p r o m p t
and

The

said
thai no

The

underscored
this.

"And I have reached it in t h e

Stressing
that

said ' t h a t a r r a n g e m e n t s of this
kind are never foolproof."
But he said t h a t in light o r
carefully considered a n d u n a n i m o u s advice from military a n d
