APA, STB Record Wins In
Prelude To Sat. Contest
The stage was set this past week for one of the most important games in League 1 football as both APA
and STB recorded victories. APA, in scoring a 12-0 victory over the Nads, preserved their undefeated record
with only two games remaining.
STB kept themselves in the race with a 10-0 win over Upsilon Phi Sigma.

Women's Tennis Team
Ends Successful Year
I
The women's intercollegiate
tennis team had a very successful
Fall season. After sponsoring the
Women's Eastern Collegiate
Tennis Tournament on October
4-6 at which 33 colleges in the
East all congregated at Albany,
they went on to play a five match
schedule.
They first traveled to Oneonta,
winning 3-2. Winners were Dolly
Magaril, playing manager, and the
number one doubles team of
Georgann Jose and Carol Perkins.
Then two freshmen, Kathy Ferger
and Robin Sacks, went on to win
their first match, 4-6, 6-0, 6-2.
On October 15, the team
traveled to Green Mountain in
Poultney Vermont and swept
every match, winning 4-0. Shetia
Jacobs, no. 1 singles, and Belinda
Stanton won hard fought 3-set
matches.
The scheduled match against
Potsdam was rained out, but the
weather was perfect in a 4-1 loss
to Vassar. Belinda Stanton was
the sole winner for Albany as she
recorded a 6-4, 6-2 win over her
opponent.
The last match scheduled at
home against New Paltz was again
rained out and since the weather
was becoming too cold to
compete in, the rest of the season
was cancelled.

state are invited to attend.
Mr.' Peninger has coached at
MSU for six years and has

The league leaders overcame a
determined pass rush and tight
secondary
to throw two
touchdown passes, one to Denny
Elkin and one to Jack Sinnott.
The Nads, who have yet to win
this year, looked as if they might
pull the upset of the year in the
first half as they refused to give
up any substantial gains to APA'S
strong passing attack.
In the second quarter, however,
Gary Torino found Denny Elkin
open and hurled a pass which
resulted in a six point lead for
APA. The point-after attempt
failed, and the APA men took a
6-0 lead into the second half.
Led by quarterback Tom
Mullins, the Nads drove down the
field only to have their drive
halted when a long pass was
dropped in the end zone.

opening season loss to Potter Club
when they gave up 13 points.
In other games Saturday, Potter
Club goes against the Nads, KB
meets Waterbury and UFS tries
for their first win of the year
against Tappan.
APA, helped by two successive
pass interference calls, brought
the ball to the Nads five yard line
where they scoredon a pass from
Gary Torino to Jack Sinnott.
In the game played Tuesday,
STB, who are tied for second with
Tappan Hall, registered two
safeties and a touchdown in their
victory over UFS.
The STB defense scored the
first safety when a snap from
center went over the quarterbacks
head and into the end zone. The
second safety came when the UFS
quarterback was caught in the end
zone by a strong pass rush.
STB's lone touchdown came on
a pass from quarterback Bruce
Sand to tight end Mike Pavy.
This Saturday, APA and STB
meet in a must game for both
teams. If STB is to remain in
contention for the title, they must
register a win over the APA men.
Although a loss will not

"By December, if the situation
doesn't change, 25,000 people a
day will die of starvation in
Biafra." This statement was made
by Walter Ofonagoro, one of the
speakers at an informal meeting
Tuesday night of students
concerned about the shocking
situation in Biafra. The other
speaker was Mary Umolu.
Ofonagoro began by reviewing
the history of Biafra and the
political difficulties that led to the
present crisis there. He went into
how Nigeria is trying "to wipe
Biafrans from the face of the
•arth."
Umolu noted mat deliberate
starvation is not the only method
rjy which Nigeria is trying to wipe
out the Biafrans. They are also
killing boys over the age of eight
years, abusing the women, and
depriving children of protein,
which will make them mentally
deficient.
People asked why the Riafrans

won't take some food offered to
them. The answer given was that
they have good reason for their
fear of being poisoned.
The iwo speakers also urged
that political pressure be applied
to the United States government
in order to get a cease fire. Umolu
charged the United States with
not wanting to change the face of
Nigeria, yet the United States has
greatly changed its face.
She went on to say that
Senator Brooke had reported to
the U.S. government that
genocide did not exist in Biafra.
She was told that "He travelled
with three women, and the three
women were afraid to go to
Biafra." She said, therefore, that
the Senator could not say that
genocide didn't exist because he
had not even been there.
One of the most effective
agencies to work through is the
Biafra Relief Service Foundation.
Another organization which sends
aid is the World Council of
Churches.

Plans by the Student-Faculty
Committee for Equal Opportunity
to boycott the purchase of
California grapes by picketing
local supermarkets at Stuyvesant
Plaza on Friday met with legal
obstacles.
The Committee had originally
planned to picket Grand Union
and Central Markets at the Plaza
since the stores had refused to
cooperate with their request to
halt the purchase and sale of
California grapes. Plans were
revised when it was learned that
Stuyvesant Plaza is private
property and large-scale picketing
and distributing of printed
material would be illegal.
It was decided that two people
carrying posters would be
stationed in front of each store in
continuing shifts. The Btores were

Saturday during store hours. The

schedule next weekend.

Press Secretary George Christian, asked if there was any

"The most recent economic

the University Athletic Council
(UAC) Report. In a spirit of
co-operation and with the hope of
swift action by the President,
Council retracted its statement of
non-support of the UAC Report.
Previously, Council had stated
that it would not support UAC
unless its recommendation, which
was, in effect, majority student
membership on the proposed
Athletic Council, was accepted by
the President.
WaterburyExperiment.
Two WeekOpen House
Waterbury Hall will hold an
experimental open house in an
attempt to liberalize the present
policy of the University, which
states that all doors musl be kept
open at any Open-House, and that
there must be supervisors on duty
at all times during the time it is in
progress.
The Waterbury experiment will
consist of a constant open house
from November 8 to November
22 in which there will be no
supervisors and no sign-in. On
week days it will end at 10:45
p.m. and on weekends it will end
at 12:45 a.m.
T h e reason b e h i n d
the
experiment is that the students
want to be given more trust and
responsibility and feel that it is
about time that they
receive
it.
They cited as examples the
liberality of the Union and R.P.I.
colleges' policies on the subject.
Most students believe that the
University should completely
abolish the Open House and that
they should be allowed to have
visitors of the opposite sex in
their rooms at any time, as is the
policy of the above schools.
The experiment is interpreting
LAAC's ruling on open doors as
meaning that the doors must be
unlocked in order to be open and
not visibly open as was previously
the implied policy of the
University.

The Pueblo Referendum vote
was invalid because the necessary
10% of the student body failed to
vote. However, in view of the
majority voice in favor of the

Great Exceptions
To the Editor:
Now that the mandatory fee
has been passed by the students, I
believe that it is necessary that the
proper views be given to the
situation. I, therefore, take great
exception to the article that
appeared above the banner-head
of the ASP last Tuesday.
It was accurate to some extent,
but in other ways it was both
inaccurate and mistaken.
First, the phrase "naturally
expressed
p l e a s u r e " was
editorializing on the part of the
reporter. If someone from the
ASP would like to make
comments about what they think
1 naturally take pleasure in, these
thoughts ought to be confined to
the editorial page.
Secondly, the reporting was
grossly inaccurate. With regards to
the married students tax card, it is
not true that the non-student
spouse of a State student can buy
a tax card at an INCREASED
rate; rather, this non-student can
buy a card for himself at a
decreased rate from the rate he
would pay as a student. It is quite
true that married students have a
lot fewer coins than the single
student, on the whole.
This sounds like the Student
Association is getting the raw end
of a deal; however, in actuality,
Student Association Is gaining
increased monetary benefits frcm
people who are not students here.
This is not the main purpose of
the measure though. The idea was
so that the married students and
their spouses would take * more
; ctive part in the University and
ettei receive some of the benefits
whicl. they rightfully deserve.
Applications are being accepted
from members of the Class of 1970 for

This brings me to the next
i m p o r t a n t point.
Student
Association did not add the two
measures—the faculty payment of
the fee or the married students
tax card—just because it would
increase income. It was felt that
we had something to offer to
everyone here at the University,
and we felt that the faculty and
staff were as much a part of the
University as any one student or
student group.
We,
t h e r e f o r e , w a n t to
encourage as many persons as we
can to partake of the benefits
offered to them. We feel that a
better feeling of unity can be
fostered if faculty and staff join
the students in their recreation
and enjoyment. It surely cannot
be wrong to encourage unity and
good feeling with fellow members
of our University Community.
I think that the mandatory fee
will cause some difficulties and
will arouse some feelings in the
student body. Any measure of
this nature could not and does not
please all the persons involved.
And then again, maybe it is
time that the student body begin
to be aroused about something
instead of calmly going around in
its own world. It's about time that
the student body begin to think
for itself and to make its voice
heard. Everyone was given the
opportunity to vote in the
mandatory fee referendum.
Even though the voting turnout
was higher than ever before, it was
still only about 14%. There is
hope, then. At least 14% of the
students have something to say
for themselves. That means that
only 86% of the students are
apathetic und lazy. There is still
hope.

Surreptitious
The image of the security police on this campus
is one of an offensively authoritarian force. We do
not mean to say that the security officers are
attempting to turn the University into a police
state, nor do we expect this generalization to
apply to each member of th: campus force.
However, the uncouth manner in which many of
the individuals on the security staff act has
created this image.
There have been numerous incidents when a
security guard has unnecessarily ordered students
around. It seems that some of these men have a
totalitarian mind that can conceive of nothing
wrong with ordering a student not to sit on a
t a b l e , cmbarassing him in front of his
acquaintances, or doing some other ridiculous
thing.
Open Letter
To the Editor:
An open letter to State Senator
Erway and the N.Y.S. Legislature:
Upon the occasion of my high
school graduation, I received a
form letter of congratualtions
from a candidate for the N.Y.S.
assembly, Dr. M. L. Pox of
Auburn, N.Y. In that letter he
claimed that by now I should have
attained a "mature understanding
of the concepts of 'freedom,
tolerance, and individual liberty',"
which is my "heritage as an
American."
I understand, sir, that an
attempt was recently made by the
State Legislature to nullify these
very freedoms. The bill I am
concerned
with
is
the
anti-disension bill for Regents
Scholarship holders. I trust you
did all in your power to defeat
this bill, but it remains a very
disturbing thought that such a bill
was even considered.
Also in that letter, Dr. Fox
claimed that my "fellow men'
were eager t o accept my
contribution to the causes of
"peace, happiness, and general
good in this world of ours."
Again, sir, it seems that many of
the men comprising the N.Y.S.
legislature do not consider me one
of t h e i r fellow men and
apparently are in no way eager to
accept my contributions to these
causes.
This, to me, is plainly evidence
by the N.Y.S. voting age of
twenty-one. I have attained the
age of eighteen, and I urn now
expected to turn over to the
government of this country that
most inalienable right of any man:
that right, sir, to lifo itself. To
Security
What is more frustrating about some ot the
s e c u r i t y police is their unwillingness to
accomodate the individual. Too many women have
come back to their dorm a minute or two after the
"let-in") only to find the security guard walking
out of the quad and refusing to reopen the dorm.
At a scene of a recent accident where a student
was hit by a car, the authoritarian mentality of a
security officer almost had grave consequences.
According to witnesses the guard would not let
anyone near the victim, who i
was
going
into shock, until one person was able to force his
way past the officer to put a blanket over "the
victim.
Fortunately, not all security officers have these
little authoritarian minds. Students should be able
to respect the security officer, but who can rcspec
a man without common sense?
The qualifications for a campus
security guard should be made
more stringent. The officer hired
under a more selective method

as long as this government insists
that the murder and exploitation
of the Vietnamese people is more
significant than my right to exist,
then I demand, sir, a vote in the
policies of that government and
demand also that you as my
representative do all in your
power to influence the present
policies of that government in
accordance with the wishes of the
populace, not the politicians.

After a week of attempted
political humor, I am compelled
to review once again political
reality. This is a task for which I
confess I am not qualified.
However, this technicality will not
thwart me, because I've examined
the qualifications of certain other
people for an endeavor much
more tedious thai mine.
Since Election Day 1968 is
today, I've chosen to analyze our
candidates (better make that
"their positions." Our candidates
are way beyond the point of
possible analysis).
Let's briefly eliminate George
Corley Wallace, who is running
primarily on a Law and Order
Platform. It would be absured to
vote for Wallace, even if you
believe in "rugged individualism"
or "survival of the whitest".
Assuming for a moment that
Wallace is elected, he will have
virtually no support in Congress.
He will be able to suggest all the
bills he wants, but let's face it, as
far as bills are concerned, the
president's powers are almost
exclusively negative ones.
If we elect George Wallace we
will be even further displaced

The answer to each of these
questions is probably a resounding
"No." But one of them is going to
be elected anyway.
What makes for a bad night's
sleep tonight, is that the President
of tomorrow has to be so many
t h i n g s . He has t o be a
philosopher-king; he has to be
able to deal with an infinite
variety of people, groups, and
nations; and he has to master
every imaginable type of subject
matter.
Can a Nixon, a Humphrey, or a
Wallace fill the impressive bill of
this magical animal? Is it not
rather like asking a cow to lay
eggs, or a hen to give milk? Is
there really any person alive who
can become this thing called a
President?
Such questions, however, are at
best superfulous. For whether or
not
such
a
wonderous
transformation from man to
President can occur, tomorrow
everyone will believe that it did,
IN FACT, occur. That is, the
Mover of Events becomes a
reality, because everyone wishes it
to be so.
Then the Mover begins to move
his people, which he does
correctly, incorrectly, or (more
likely) obliquely. But historically,
politically, and socially, the
President SHALL move America.
He will move it, and most of those
voting today will not know, or
cat', how he does it.
So is it really worth losing sleep
tonight? Most American voters
will not think so. Tonight, they
will rest their heads on their
pillows—and close their eyes.
Tomorrow they will wake, wink
at the victor—and close their eyes
again. . . • Therein lies the rub . . .
No, America! Don't shut your
eyes. These people no longer want
Coca-Cola imperialism, or United
F r u i t C o m p a n y imperialism.
These people, and they are
people, want independence to rule
their own destinies.
We cannot pretend Mexico City
1968 did not occur; just as we
cannot pretend Paris 1968 did not
occur. It did occur, and we as
fellow international students have
the obligation of fighting in our
own country against this same
c a p i t a l i s t i c and imperialistic
s y s t e m t h a t suppresses our
Mexican brothers. Our brothers to
the South gave their blood for the
freed orn that we Americans
cherish. Can we do less than give
them our support?
The spirit of Che Guevera lives
in them as it does in us. It is not
just romanticism. It is the spirit in
all of us to be free and proud—to
have dignity and honor. But this
dream can only be accomplished
by a mass student movement in
America in conjunction with our
Latin comrades to the South.
What has happened to our
Vietnamese brothers we must not
let occur in Latin America. We
needn't be paranoic of the specter
of Soviet Communism; these
people are simply proclaiming to
us, to all the world-WE ARE
PEOPLE!
And we as people cannot
passively stund by and watch the
US colonial order and its puppet
governments create two or three
Vietnams in Latin America. We
must fight as we have long fought
against the imperialist war in
Vietnam.
from t h e goal of unifying
American theory with American
practice.
Next, we come to Hubert
H u m p h r e y , who is running
primarily on a Law and Order
Platform.
Humphrey has been saddled by
the Johnson image in a multitude
of ways.
First let me say that Humphrey
is more liberal, dovish if Vietnam
is your bag, than the Johnson
Administration's record indicates.
What can Mr. Humphrey do in the
White House? The painful answer
is about as much as Wallace.
Hubert Humphrey is a good
man, usually very honest for a
politician. With a favorable
congress, he could be a good,
perhaps a great president. With
the congress he will have, he will
be a pathetic sight as president.
Although I 'm trying to be
objective in this column, T'll insert
a value judgment by stating that I
don't consider Mr. Humphrey to
be of presidential timber. He is an
energetic, exhuberant man who
gets a boyish thrill when things go
his way, and a dismal sulk when
they don't.
Finally, we come to Richard M.
Nixon, who is running primarily
on a Law and Order Platform.
Without any favoritism, I call
Richard Nixon the next President
of the United States, and with
favoritism, I add, gladly so.
Richard Nixon will be a
forceful president with a favorable
c o a l i t i o n congress. He has
alienated few Republicans, and
has a g o o d l y n u m b e r of
Democrats on his team.
His alledged conservatism is
actually "preservatism," wanting
only to deepen the democratic
traditions of the United States. It
is possible that Richard Nixon will
be the best president our country
will know, but I don't think he
will be (there go. those value
judgments again).
The conservatives of the United
States have no choice. They must
either sell out to bigotry, which is
definitely not an American theory
(and we do want to be American,
don't we, boys?), or vote for
Richard Nixon.
The liberals of the United
States also have no choice. They
can vote for Richard Nixon and
take the chance of him keeping
his promises and securing private
enterprise for the ghettoes, or
they can waste their votes on a
man who is politically doomed.
After giving serious thought to
jumping
on the
Paulsen
bandwagon, I have decided to
s u p p o r t Richard Nixon for
President of the United States.
And half an hour later the
elevator came, and it was good,
ind he had missed half his test,
and that was not good-in fact
that was lousy. And Paul bore his
fate manfully like the Gracious
Greek that he was, and he entered
the elevator, and it was full of
people, and the mighty elevator
slammed shut its massive doors,
and the elevator went, and the
elevator stopped, between the
thirteenth and fourteenth floors,
And the Otis man came and
removed the nails from out the
mighty motor, and opened the
doors, and saw Paul, and Paul
palled with persperation, and
lashed out in a fitful vengeance,
and consumed the Otis man. And
he then consumed TXO, and this
was good, and he received an
award for fire prevention.
Part the second: The Fire-drill:
And Paul, contemplating hf
actions of the morning showered
in his bath, and the fire-bell rang,
and this was bad. Leaping from
beneath the cascading waters, he
landed on his faithful sidekick
Straight as a Ruler Casale, who
was magically transformed into
Thin as a Tunic Tony. Searching
in vain for his apparel (for in this
land all rooms are dark) Paul
dashed to the aid of his charges,
who were fast asleep because they
hadn't heard the bell. And he
burst the door of 1104 to awaken
the residents therein, but found to
his chagrin, a girl therein. And he
cursed all the dwellers in this
UMighted land, for they had been
bad, and that was not good.
Scooping up the maiden (and this
was good), lacking control, and
cursing the dwellers for a not
heeding the rules, he swooped
-awn the stairs into the darkness,
f°* there were no elevators, for it
* « "> ordained by the Housing
Office, and this was stupid,
Part the third: The Suicide: But
even the greatest of the Gracious
Greeks could not long endure the
cold incurred during flameless
fires, nor the narrow beds, nor the
sterile white rooms, and upon
contemplation Paul saw that all
this was bad, and rushed to the
waiting elevator (for the Gods
were merciful), and ascended to
the Penthouse.
But Paul's frame was massive,
and the windows were small, so he
burst through the wall, but those
seeing him fall said, "Fear not, for
the insects dwelling below the
fourth floor will cushion his fall'
(for it had been ordained by the
Stygian Stone that insects cannot
fly higher than four floors). And
on floor two a screen had failed
off, and the insects had flown in
to take the elevator to the upper
floors, and this was bad, for Paul
splattered on the earth and the
fatal radius of his flying parts
slew all from here to Berkely.
Chorus: Now have you heard
the tale of that Gracious Ureek, of
one who after truth did seek, and
it was good.

McKinley Lectures Here
With Musical Illustrations
by Fran Drohor
William Thomas McKinley, a
doctoral candidate at Yale who is
teaching musical composition this
semester, was to give a lecture
with musical illustrations about
early jazz on Friday, Nobember 1.
McKinley opened by saying that
jazz should be listened to instead
of spoken s jut, and procededed
to give a tw hour jazz concert.

the percussion instrument; Roger
Cooke played the bass, and John
Lissauer played a tenor saxophone
and a flute.
It was without question an
excellent concert, even for those
who knew nothing about jazz.
They began with "Chim Chim
Chiree," and went on to pieces
composed by McKinley and one
by Roger Ryan, the drummer.
Towards the end McKinley said
"We'll just play." What followed
was total improvisation; It was
successful. Their music ranged
from loud, fast, dissonant jazz to
slow, soft music with complete
emphasis on the tempo.
The audience
applauded
frequently following exceptional
p e r s f o r m a n c e s by individual
musicians. An informal, relaxed
atmosphere prevailed; the
vibrations could be felt in the room
and people were nodding, tapping,
and moving in time to the music.
A question and answer period
followed the concert, in which
McKinley explained that there are

With Win At Stony Brook
The University's Great Danes finished out the '68 season this past Saturday on a winning note, defeating
SUNY at Stony Brook by a score of 2-1. Playing on a strange turf after a long ride, the soccer team
performed very well, according to coach Bill Schifflein.
Jim Shear, a junior, put in the first Albany goal at 4:05 in the first quarter. Ron Spratt followed in the
s middle of the second quarter.
The Great Danes then held
i Stony Brook, almost shutting
i them out, until a screen drew

was scored late in the last quarter.

The Albany defense turned one
of its best showings all season,
allowing only four goal attempts.
The team finished with a 3-8-1
record, but coach Schifflein

Defeats STB 13-12
by Dave Fink
What amounted to be the
climatic game of the League I
season was played this Saturday.
APA, with an unblemished record
of 4-0, needed a win over STB,
with a;i -1-1 record, to capture the
title.
In the opening minutes, u
seemed that both offenses would
dominate play. APA received the
kickoff and began to move
immediately on completions from
Gary Torino to flanker Lance
Brofsky and then to tight end
Denny Elkin.
But this drive was stifled on an
alert interception by Larry Meyers
of S T B . M e y e r s , now at
quarterback, wasted no time.
While

a receiver and thus ran with the
ball for two first downs. A
completion to Mike Pavy gave
STB the ball at the APA 25 yard
line.
Now, STB was stopped on an
interception by Jack Sinnott.
APA evidently was not to be
denied again as they drove
downfield on some fine running
by Torino and two fine catches by
Brofsky. Torino scored on an end
sweep giving APA a 7-0 lead.

APA got the ball, but
immediately lost it when Mike

it back 60 yards for a touchdown
putting STB in the lead 12-7. APA
received the kickoff and moved
down to the STB one yard line
before they were held on a
fantastic goal line stand.
STB took over but a Meyers'
pass was intercepted on the 50
yard line. APA scored after a fine
run by Torino, on a pass to Elkin
to make the score 13-12 at the
half.
The score remained the same
until late in the fourth quarter
when Meyers intercepted a Torino
pass and ran it back to the APA

Handalman for what seemed to be
the winning touchdown, but a
change in ruling placed the ball on
the two yard line. STB could not

Harriers Record Victory
Over Undefeated C. W. Post
Nix On
This past week, I received information to the effect that the Faculty
Senate has decided to recommend that the University not institute a
football program.
One of the members of the Senate objected to the implementation of
a football team on the grounds that the money which would be
expended for such an endeavor might be put to better use in other
areas. The contender was that it is more important to spend money
either for more professors or for higher salaries for those already
employed.
A second rationale offered by the Senate was that they did not want
to see Albany become a "football school." Many of the faculty
members felt that the :nception of football would reduce Albany to a
school known only for its football prowess. The idea is that Albany will
have its hard fought for academic rating overshadowed by the football

The Great Danes proved to
have too much depth for Post,
however, as the next seven
runners were Albany runners.
Larry Frederick followed the
two Post runners across the line to
finish third in the race. Following
Frederick were Paul Roy, Pat
Gepfert, Paul Breslin, George
Roiling, Don Beevers, and Jim
Mastromarchi.
Once again, t h e harriers
displayed the depth which has
enabled them to win many of
their meets this year. Even with
the opposition capturing the first
two positions, the harriers were
able to record a secure 25-36
victory.
team.
I find both of these rationales rather difficult to digest. Neither
argument, upon inspection holds water.
For years, the Athletic Advisory Board has been building up a fund
for the express purpose of financing a football team. This money has
come from the students themselves through an athletic tax, part of the
student tax which all students must now pay. Consequently, the
formation of a football team will not take away from the professors.
The addition of more professors of the increasing of salaries for
professors will not be hindered by the formation of a football team.
The second argument offered by the Senate seems completely
absurd. The idea that Albany will become an athletic school devoid of
academic excellence is nonsensical for several reason. Number one,

Nixon's Victory :
An Analytic View
by Dan Sabia
•/
ASP News Analyst
"Winning isalot more fun." So
said Richard M. Nixon, 37th
President of the United States, as
he reminiscenced about the long
struggle from his close loss of
I960, to his even closer win of
1968.
For Nixon, his election
represented years of hard work,
effort, and diligence. He was
therefore dissappointed by the
outcome of 111 it; election.
Drobably the closest one in
American history: with 9-1 per
cent of the vote in, the media
reported Nixon ahead by an
amazing 375 thousandths of 1 per
cent.
Even in the electoral college
Nixon did poorly by winning only
a small majority. In several states
he won by pluralities only, as he
did in the country at large. Such a
poor score means trouble.
And Nixon will have trouble. In
national trends he lost the cities,
labor, and the black and
low-income vote, he barely won
California, lost New York, and
even lost his V.P.'s state of
Maryland.
More significantly, Nixon was
unable to spread his coattails. In
the Senate races, the Republicans
remained in the minority by 16
seats; in the House the Democrats
held a 51 vote majority.
Obviously, the Republican
President is not fioing to find
Republican enthusiasm in his
Congress.
A recalcitrant Congress and a
split and very volatible public are
thus not only the two most
significant results of this election,
but mean also two terrible
headaches for the new President.
If anything has emerged as
outstanding in this remarkable
year, it is that the election solved
none of the problems facing this
troublednation, and indeed, may
have only exacerbated them.
What ts more, no one knows
what Nixon plans to do. He has
campaigned in the old style of

Year O f Studies In Nice
Sponsored By Univer sity
by
Amy Gurian
A meeting has been scheduled
for November 15, 1 p.m. in the
Humanities Faculty Lounge (HU
354), to discuss and distribute
information concerning the
program at Nice. The program is
under the direction of Associate
Dean Charles Colman, former
Head of the Department of
Romance Languages, and John
Nicolopoulos, Coordinator of
International Studies.
Freshmen, as well as all other
interested studentes, are urged to
attend so that they may plan their
pecific
new schedules with
requirements in mind.
The program in France,
sponsored by the State University
of New York, selects 10 students
from each of the four university
centers to spend a year at the
University of Nice. It offers those
majoring in French and others
who are qualified, an excellent
opportunity to improve their
knowledge of the French
language, culture, and way of life.
France is indeed the pivotal
point for most of the State
University's programs in Europe
and the Mediterranean area. Dr.

students to have closed doors
during open houses.
This bill is supported by a seven
page rationale. Hie four-part
rationale is composed of
statements and policies from
various sources.
The rationale is based heavily
o n s t u d e n t s ' rights and
responsibilities. It is felt that,
"Our University is committed to
recognizing maturity.' It is
assumed that students will
"formulate their own ideals and
standards."
"Obedience to a meaningless
rule conditions nothing more than
obedience to a rule. The present
residence regulations are not a
challenge; they do not stimulate
individual growth, thought and
action. Education is a life-time
process which is a vital part of all
human development. ' How can a
University educate when the
students place restrictions upon
education?"
' .Students should be allowed i.o
determine their own limitations.
They should become thoroughly
acquainted with the ideals of
individual
and
group
responsibility and freedom. "
MYSKANIA has taken the
position that "the curfew system
imposed on freshmen women has
no rational basis and ought to be
abolished." They feel that the
present system is "self-defeating
in its avowed objective," which is
to acclimate freshmen women to
the University.
The above proposals were
discussed by LAAC Wednesday,
but because of the lack of
information before the living area

views of the YAF, were the

panelists. Moderating was BUI
Rohde.
Evans was the first to speak. He
felt that a definition of welfare
was necessary and proceeded to
define it as not only the fulfilling
of material need but also as
freedom from control of the state
over the individual's life.
He stated that it was the latter
type of welfare that is diminishing
in our country today. He used
welfare workers as an example,
saying that they ' nose around in
the affairs of people whom they
are supposed to be helping."
Next Iseman spoke, stressing
the fact that many people believe
that welfare is a human right
rather than a privilege. He
interpreted the right to property
to mean thu right to pursue
property. When one works and
earns property, then he owns it.
Iseman objected to welfare on
the grounds that the government
forces the majority of people to
work a certain amount of time to
support those on welfare.
Following Iseman was Pollack
who said that the stale thinks it
has the right to make decisions for
people becuase it grants them
economic and social welfare,
He also brought up the point
that
society
responsibility
because
it assume,
sets certain
standards,
such as auto safety standards and
laws having to do with the
controlling of air pollution.
Pollack feels that the rules of
our society ensure that some
people will have decent housing,
food, and clothing, while others
will not. 'The things people want
should be theirs w i t h o u t
qualification, without control or
decisions not made by them."
The fourth to speak wus
Rawson, who posed the question,
' Why are there poor?" It is not
because there are rich, because
there are insufficient welfare
funds, because there aren't
enough jobs or schools, nor
because of the terrorization of the
poor by the police.
He said that the slate has
usurped the right of the people to
make decisions and that the poor
must reverse this.
Summing up, the YAF and SDS
found that they agreed that
through granting welfare, the
government has gone too far in
making decisions for the
individual. The poor cannot rely
more on the government to fulfill
their needs but must gain their
rights, forcibly, it necessary,
through the structure of the law.
