AMI A Causes Controversy
Marcus, Doody Involved
The winter sports season is about to begin at Albany State. On the
varsity level, it appears as if both the basketball and the wrestling teams
will be suffering. The freshman teams, although it is always difficult to
predict how well they will do, again look as if they may be hurt by lack
of participation.
The AMIA basketball leagues
are once mote in the process of
taking shape with the close of the
football season and the approach
of winter. Ten teams recently
registered in League I and,
The Great Danes basketball squad has been beset by a number of
misfortunes. Stef Smigiel, who was one of the top substitutes last year,
and was expected to make a valuable contribution to this year's squad,
is no longer in attendance at this school. Bob Wood, who was sidelined
last year with a virus infection, dropped out of school midway through
this semester. Wood, although there was a question of whether or not
he would be given permission by the doctor to play this year, certainly
would have been an important performer if he had participated. A third
setback suffered by the team was the development of calcium deposits
on Scott Price's ankle. Without Price in the lineup, the team will be
woefully lacking for rebounders.

undergraduates at the University.
I would surmise that while the hoopsters will probably still have a
winning record, it doesn't seem feasible that they will be able to secure
the NCAA bid which they barely missed last year.
The varsity wrestling squad is extremely short of wrestlers this year.
While they have a good set of wrestlers in the lower weight classes,
there is only one man on the squad over 152 pounds. As a result of
such a large shortage of wrestlers, the team will be able to w.n only if
they capture each of the lower weight classes to stand a chance of

Burlingame argued that the rule

Course In Black History
Designed To End Ignorance
by Kevin McGirr
"Abraham Lincoln freed the
Black man from slavery,'' a
statement that one might elicit
from any child and most adults, is
actually quite far from the truth.
Mr. Jerome Dukes, who teaches
the Black History courses at the
Urban Center, 80 Central Avenue,
feels that 'Reconstruction' has
been the most distorted period of
The conceptualization of
President Lincoln as being the
Great Emancipator was actually
not the reality for most Blacks
after the war. Only because the
Union Army was failing did
Lincoln allow Blacks to fight for
their own freedom rtfter the war
only veterans and 'very intelligent
Negroes' were allowed to vote.
Ignotan'-e of peoples whom
you have learned to mistrust will
reinforce misunderstanding and
hatred; such is the philosophy of
Dukes. He feels that the
introduction of Black history into
early childhood curriculum will be
a necessity for racial harmony in
the future.
He also feels that it should be
assimilated into the regular school •
curriculum and not as a single
course which is being done
presently. To Dukes' knowledge,
there has been no wide-scale
attempt to bring this subject
matter into the schools.
Dukes feels that it is no I
enough that only historical fact be
taught, but it is also important
that Black Arts be introduced.

The.Right Way
In 1960, if you asked someone
why they didn't like Richard
Nixon the probable answer would
be, "I don't know; there's
something about him, but I can't
put my finger on it." During the
Nixon-Kennedy contest, this reply
seemed to be standard for those
people who opposed Mr. Nixon. It
had a bandwagon effect among
Kennedy supporters, it became
their pet phrase.
In 1968, Spiro Agnew has come
under similar attack. Today the
"thing to do" is to be against
Agnew. Whether you have any
reasons seems to be unimportant.
Ask someone why they are so
hostile towards him. Ask them to
objectively analyze his record and
qualifications. Tb ; chances are
most of his critics have never
bothered to examine his record.
They are just content to yell
"Agnew" in their favorite
sarcastic tone; just like some lirst
grader who thinks what his friend
is saying is pretty smart, so he'll
say it too.
1966 h e " entered into an
"irrevocable trust agreement with
the Maryland National Bank
under the terms of which the
bank was to make a suitable sale
of the land within one year or put
it up for public auction. On Oct.
31, 1967 the land was sold for
$13,200, at a slight LOSS to
Agnew." (Congressional Digest)
Finally consider the now
infamous conflict of interest
charge by the New York Times. It
was originally made by Rep.
Clarence D. Long concerning the
building of a second bridge across
Chesapeake Bay. Long claimed
that Agnew was pushing for the
bridge to be built because he
owned land near the proposed
cite. From rt]e floor of the US
House, Rep. Rogers C.B. Morton
defended Agnew. Agnew had
To me it is very strange that
last spring when Agnew was
backing Rockefeller, northern
liberals were all singing his praises
for being a true southern
progressive. Then suddenly, when
he switched to Nixon he became a

"I don't exist."
It has been said that we are the
products of our respective
experiences. In developing my
idea, I have assumed this to be a
verity. The annihilation of the
first person singular, the "I",
depends on this point.
Experiences, as reactions
between people, are dependent on
interaction and interpersonal
iuvolvment. This interaction, an
active force in human relations, is
the antithesis of apathy.
Today is the fifth anniversary
of the asaassination of President
Kennedy. It 1B as good a time aa
any to look back on the tragedy
of the last eight years.
In 1961 it appeared to all New

marked the end of the post-war
era. The previous November, two
men, born in this century,

was symbolic. The victory of the
forty-three year old Catholic was
the herald of a new day; it seemd
to most that the New Frontier

of the transition. There on the
platform were the aged Presidents

Should these requirements be

Money to construct these units

The feedback received by coach
Jeanine Rice also was of a
complimentary nature. Coaches
from other colleges thanked the
'mother of god' for making the
tournament more interesting than
it normally would have been.
While the 'god case' (originated
by Stratton Rawson) did not

was nothing more than an opinion
Secondly. Rawson stated that
many of the procedures used in
conducting the referendum w e n
i m p r o p e r . The plaintiffs'
contended that "the voters were
not provided with protections
consistent with Common Law,
New York State Statute, or
Student Association Statute." As
an example Rawson asserted that
New York State election laws
require that a statement of
proposition be included in the
ballot. However, the petitioners
did not believe that the part of
the ballot reading "it hereby
refers the question of a
mandatory student fue to vou
[the voters]" was adequate .
Thirdly, Rawson argued that
the ballot, as worded in the
referendum, was editorialized and
biased. The ballot stated, in part,
that there is a need for "bigger,
better and more activities of [a]
recreational, social and education
nature." The plaintiffs stated that
the words "bigger, better and
more" were comparative t e r m
and not neutral ones. Keith Nealy
wrote in his argument before the
court, "the onlv change called for
is not voting in a referendum, but
voting yes in the referendum."
Duncan Nixon defended the SA
opinion along with Terry Mathias,
Vice-president 01' Central Council,
and with Mitch Foster and
Stephanie Rice, respectively
chairman and vice-chairman of
Election Commission. The
defendants presented the court an
eleven page brief which answered
Nealy's arguments on a point by
point basis.
the plaintiffs'
contentions was that Central
Council bill 6869-41, which called
for the referendum, did not
"make clear to the voter that the
result of the referendum would
determine whether or not we
would have a mandatory student
fee." The defense stated that
nowhere in "the constitution,
laws or enactments of Student
