C. Wilson, Jr. a b r u p t l y breaking
his c u r i o u s silence over college
football's
most sought

player, said M o n d a y t h e Buffalo
Bills would p r o b a b l y reach for O.
J. Simpson in next
month's
professional draft.
T h e Bills coach traveled t o Los

to
watch
S i m p s o n play when USC faced
Notre Dame.
T h e Bills' o w n e r said in a brief
s t a t e m e n t h e was embarrassed b y
the
1-12-1 record
t h a t gave
Buffalo
professional
football's
worst record and t h e right t o
n e g o t i a t e with Simpson. He said
no o n e player could c o m p e n s a t e
for t h e B i l l s ' s h o w i n g in 1 9 6 8 .
Buffalo with its 1-12-1 record
was guaranteed first pick in t h e

We have n o t m a d e a final
decision nor will we until all the

Wilson said, But Simpson is t h e
m o s t exciting college player t o
come
along in m a n y ,
many
seasons and t h e way it looks right
n o w we will p r o b a b l y draft him.
Under

regulations t h e t e a m w i t h t h e
worst record in b o t h t h e A F L and

Wilson previously had been
silent in regards t o S i m p s o n , t h e
Heisman T r o p h y winner
from
S o u t h e r n Cal. But his head c o a c h ,
Harvey J o h n s o n , was lavish in his
praise of the n a t i o n ' s t o p running
back.
I just c a n ' t conceive of a n y
t e a m n o t taking him, J o h n s o n said
after t h e Bills were assurred of the
t o p c h o i c e in t h e J a n . 2 8 draft.
He's a great r u n n e r , t h a t ' s all
t h e r e is t o it, J o h n s o n said.
Get him and you play him to
r u n with t h e football.
It certainly is nice t o b e in a
position w h e r e y o u k n o w you can
get S i m p s o n if y o u w a n t h i m . I
t h i n k he's o n e of t h e m o s t
outstanding
college

developed in recent years and he's
a terrific r u n n i n g back, J o h n s o n
said.

An open meeting to discuss the
reports from four task forces
concerning curriculum changes
will be held in the Campus Center
ballroom on Monday, December
16,1968, at 8 p.m.
The task forces, composed of
students and faculty members, are
each concerned with a specific
area. The four committees are
studying the academic calendar,
departmental
regulations,
instruction, and an experimental
college.
All interested students and
faculty members are invited to
attend. II is hoped that those
participating in the meeting will
contribute their opinions, ask
q u e s t i o n s and discuss the
problems of implementing the
committee's findings in the
University.
Since October, the committtees
preparing reports based on their
research; these will be presented
on Monday night.
Chairman of the meeting will
be Dr. Allan Kuusisto, the
Vice-President for Academic
Affairs. Also present will be at
least

authorities in certain fields which
were studied by the task forces,
Dr. Franklin Patterson and Dr.
Harlan D. Hansen.
Hansen is associated with the
College Entrance Examination
Board, and is the director of the
Four-Schools Study. President of
Hampshire College in Amherst,
Massachusettes, a new, progressive
college, Patterson is a co-author of
"Making of a College-Plans for a
New D e p a r t u r e in Higher
Education." He is primarily
c o n c e r n e d with creating a
curriculum which combines a
liberal
education
with
independent study.
Dr. Arthur Collins, chairman of
the Academic
Calendar
committee, commented that the
reports urge more flexibility than
in the present curriculum
stage; the other is for giving an
unmarried 22-year-old woman a
t u b e of vaginal foam (a
non-prescriptive birth control
device available at most drug
stores in other states).
The 100-year-old law, entitled
" C r i m e s Against

forbids the unmarried any access
to birth control information or
materials.

UNIVERSITY BEGINS 125TH YEAR
by Linda Staszak
A bill was passed by the legislature on May 7, 1844
establishing a normal school in the county of Albany. The
school opened on December 18 with David Perkins Page as
the first principal.
Twenty-nine pupils attended the school which was
located in a depot building vacated by the Mohawk and
Hudson Railroad Company. The building contained two
study rooms, four recitation rooms, a lecture room and
library.
During the early history the number of students was
limited to two from each assembly dislrict. There were no
scholastic requirements for admission not even graduation
from a district school.
The object of the institution was the instruction of
teachers of common schools in the science of education and
the art of leaching. The curriculum was limited lo common
school subjects and pedagogy. Instruction was chiefly
academic and teachers were chosen for their superiority at
icholars. The statute authorizing ihc establishment of the
school forbade Ihc study of any subjects not bearing
directly on Ihc science and art of leaching.
The course could be completed in Iwo terms. Graduation
was upon recommendation of Ihc Principal and faculty
based on moral character ai'd literary attainments ralhcr
than length of attendance. There was no standard of
attainment other then llie judgment of the faculty. Each
student was required lo sign a pledge thai he would teach in
Ihc dislrict schools of Ihc slate.
The first class consisting of five women and 2') men was
graduated in August. 1845. liy 1848 enrollment numbered
256. "A new law permanently established the school and
appropriated S15,00(1 for a new building which was located
al the corner of Lodge and Howard Streets.
A model or practice school was set up on the elementary
school level. During the term of Edward R. Waterbury, the
first graduate of the school to become one of its presidents,
a kindergarten was established as a branch of the model
school.
The administration of William J. Milne brought a marked
change to (he character of the school. By 1890 there were
3,000 graduates and 7,000 other students who had gone on
to be teachers. Conditions of admission were so low that a
large part of the time was spent teaching subjects usually
taught in academics and high schools. Since the normal
school course was too short lo provide mastery of both
subject matter and methods it was decided to demand

Brubacher Begins MYSKANIA
As First College Government
The emergence ol a studenl
government al the University became
apparent in March of 1917 when a
Student
Council,
known
as
MYSKANIA, was selected by a faculty
committee.
In 1917, MYSKANIA, an honorary
body composed of seniors appointed in
their junior year, was the studenl
government, and as one of its original
purposes, governed all studenl activities
other than athletics, as well as writing a
constitution for the siudent body.
MYSKANIA
i n s t i t u t e d weekly
assemblies, mandatory for every student
al Ihc college.
In 1921, the students of Ihc college
voled lo have a studenl organization

each year.
This first studenl organization,
resiilluig 11i>nt elections held lhal same
year, was composed of Ihrec officers
chosen from each ol the three uppei
classes, a council wilh members from .ill
linn classes, and a faculty mcmhci who
served as treasurer.
Sludenl government changed slowly
in ihc |930's. The constitution of the
Slate College Sludenl Association
vested all judicial power
ol Ihc
Association
in MYSKANIA, all
executive power in Studenl council,and
all legislative power in Ihc assembly of
the Association.
The Constitution also defined

freshman class, to regulate intcrclass
rivalry, to uphold college traditions, to
supervise S.A. and class elections, and to
act as interpreter of the constitution.
The war-torn forties brought new
changes to the studenl government. A
levised constitution was drawn up in
1945, in which each class would have
four Studenl Council representatives. Il
also included the controversial clause
which slated thai MYSKANIA would
no longer be self-perpetuating, but
would be elected by the students.
in the 1964-65 academic year.
The new S.A. Constitution, ratified in
April of 1965, includes a system based
on five commission areas: living aicas,
academic interests, communications,
community programming, and religious
interest.
The constitution was the work of a

enrollment in the college more than
doubled. Ihc mandatory weekly student
assemblies became inadquate, as Page
Hall could mil accommodate the entire
sludenl body, and a change appeared lo
be necessary.
In 1954, a new constitution was
proposed and defeated. By Ihc cud of
|95d. a ciisis in Ihc sludenl government
occurred and a new constitution was
deemed necessary.
A new coiisiilulioii, appioved in
1957, prevented I he collapse ol ihc

mastery of high school subjects before entrance. The
concentration would then be on complete and practical
professional tiaining.
On March 13, 1890, the Regents of the University of the
Slate of New York authorized certain changes in the
structure of the school. The name of the school was
changed to the New York State Normal College. Instruction
was restricted to methods, school economy, philosophy,
and history of education and other subjects directly related
to the science and art of teaching. Also the college was
granted the authority lo confer the degree of bachelor of
pedagogy on persons completing the course of study. The
college now had a strictly professional character.
Training of primary teachers continued lo be the chief
business of Ihc school until 1906. The school differed from
the ten other normal schools in the state in that it was the
only one lhal gave instruction in professional subjects only.
The emphasis was on teaching rather than scholarship.
Dr. Milne fell lhal pedagogy was superior lo subject matter
in the preparation of teachers. He is quoted as saying: "You
high school teachers need not know much chemistry; if you
only know the methods of leaching chemistry you will get
alone credilablv."
In April, 1914, authority was granted lo rename the
college Ihc New York Slate College for Teachers. In 1921.
Ihc College was placed on Ihc lisl of the Association of
American Universities. It was the first teachers college to be
approved by the American Association of University
Women, but as a liberal arts college not a teachers college.
Several new buildings were begun in 1920. These
included Page Hall and Milne High School. The
undergraduate qutit;. was 1,200 in 1933 wilh 300 freshmen
being admitted annually. The greal majority i.f studenls
lived in privalc houses and boarding houses until residence
halls for women were opened in 1935.
In 1938 a new policy of selective admissions was
instituted. Before September I, 250 students with a
Regents average of 87% or higher were accepled. Then on
registration day 50 were admitted from the top of the lisl
of remaining candidates. In 1943, the entrance
requirements were liberalized.
The Education Lav/, amended in 1948, established the
S t a l e University of New York and placed the
administration of the New York State College for Teachers
under the general direction of the trustees of the Slate
University. The final transfer of the College to the Stale
University became effective April 1, 1949. On September I,
1959, by act of the Trustees, the name of the college was
changed to the State University of New York College of
education al Albany. The name was changed on October
16, 1961 to Ihc Stale Universily College at Albany.
The full transition from Teachers College to University
took place in 1962 when the present name was given lo the
new Universily Center, State University of New York at
Albany.

ELEVEN PRESIDENTS GUIDE SCHOOL
by Gale McAllister
Staff Reporter
In its history, the New York State
Teachers College, which is now the State
University at Albany, has had eleven
Presidents.
Its first President, when the institution
was called the State Normal School, was
David Perkins Page. Hi* presidency, or
principalship, lasted fiom 1844 to 1848.
Page had very little formal education and

was basically a self-educated man.
Theory and Practice of Teaching, a
book concerning methods of teaching
written by Page, is considered one of his
greatest contributions.
When Page died in 1848, George R.
Perkins took over the presidency of the
school until 1852. Perkins was considered
one of t h e m o s t
"accomplished
mathematicans in this state."
Samuel B. Woolworth held the
p r e s i d e n c y of t h e s c h o o l from
1852-1856. Hn was the first President to
have a college education. Woolworth was
also responsible for first introducing the
lecture method to the Albany school to
help replace the recitation method.
David H. Cochran took over the
Presidency in 1856 and held it until
1864. Cochran was considered to have
been a successful President. The next
President, Oliver Arey, did not get along
well with the faculty; his administration
only ran from 1864 to 1867.
From 1867 to 1882, Dr. Joseph Alden
was President of the College. It has been
writen that he was an "intolerable" man,
but most of his contemporaries agreed
that he was a better educator than he was
an administrator.
Dr. Edward P. Waterbury, President
from lfc.82 to 1889, accomplished several
important
things
during
his
administration. First, he reorganized the
Alumni Association. Then, he compiled
an historical catalog of the graduates of
the Normal School. The Willett Street
b u i l d i n g was c o n s t r u c t e d during
Waterbury's administration.
During the years 1889 to 1914, Dr.
William J. Milne was President of the
college, and he instituted a broader field
of study. Dr. A. R. Brubacher, the ninth
President of the College served from 1915
until his death in 1939. During this time
he transformed the old Normal College
into the Teachers' College.
Among Burbacher's accomplishments:
he gained national recognition for the
college, he raised the status of the
factuly, obtained more extra-curricular
activities for the students, developed
Student Association, raised the standards
for admission, had three buildings
erected, and worked for an extension of
the curriculum.
Dr. J. M. Sayles was the next President
and stayed until 1948. During his
administration Sayles and Pierce Halls
were erected.

Campus Societies Grow
Community Minded
by Valerie Ives
P r o b a b l y one of the earliest
organizations on campus was the
Philomathean Society, formed about
1870. It was composed of young ladies
who met once a week for the purpose of
instruction and entertainment.
The Newman Study was organized in
1908. The purpose of the club was to
study tiie life and works of the Cardinal
John Henry Newman. Another important
organization existing at this time was the
Young Women's Christian Association. Its
function was to unite the students of the
college in Christian fellowship and
promote the well being of new students.
The first sorority. Delta Omega, was
formeo in 1890. The promotion of
physical, literary, ard social activity for
its members were its purposes. Since
then, fraternities and sororities have been
an active part of the campus. Formed in
1897, Kappa Delta is now the oldest
sorority on campus. Its function was one
of "furthering friendship, loyalty, and the
development of the individual." The first
fraternity was Phi Delta.
World War I brought about a
curtailment of fraternity life. The
Intersorority Council was formed around
1920 and it sponsored an annual ball, like
Winterlude which is now held by Special
Events Board. In 1931, the Edward
Potter Club appeared. Rejecting the idea
of a Greek letter, the thirteen men who
organized it named the club after a
member of the class of '20, who was
killed in World War I.
Even by 1900, these organizations
provided only limited activities, such as
the freshman reception and some plays
produced by the sororities. The Greeks
still sponsored most of the activities even
after World War I. One major activity,
however, was started in 1922, when the
first Campus Day wus held and the first
Campus Queen was crowned. This
developed into what is now Homecoming
Weekend.
The first student publication was
begun in June 1892, "the Normal College
Echo." This was considered the main
unifying lorce of the school, "reflecting
college activities and interests." The State
College News was organized in 1916, and
the yearbook, "Pedagogue," in 1912.
Sports have never really been much of
an important pj.rt of the college. The first
intercollegiate football game was played
in 1922 by the freshman team. Hockey
was organized in 1916. In 1925, neither
team received appropriations in the
budget and have not been brought back
since.
Soccer, the major fall sport, was
organized in 1949. The proposal for
funds to begin a fall varsity sport was
presented to a student assembly and
soccer was decided upon, soccer
equipment being less expensive than that
for football. Basketball, probably the
most stable and successful sport,
appeared in 1916, and wrestling began in
1955.
The Student Music Council brought
the Trapp Family Singers to Page Hall in
December of 1949. The Trapp Family
was made famous by the broadway play
and movie based on their lives, "The
Sound of Music."
The Forum of Politics sponsored a

Council was an appearance made by
James Farmer, piominent figure in the
civil rights movement. He said, among
other things, that segregation in northern
ghettos in many ways is and will he
harder to combat than segregation in the
rural South.
The Forum of Politics sponsored a
lecture on March 12, 1967, by Harrison
Salisbury, a Pulitzer Prize winning
journalist who had toured North Vietnam
during the last week of 1966. He was
noted to have said that the Vietnam Wi.r
could end in six months. This same group
brought the recent appearance of Allen
Cinsburg to the campus.
Today, the traditional academic clubs
are still a part of the college, but there are
also more community-active clubs. No
longer are faculty members required to
act as advisors; the students run their own
organizations,
When the State University at
Albany used to be State Teachers
College, there were a lot more
traditions than there are today.
Most of these traditions centered
about the incoming freshmen
class.
Always there were the class
rivalries. The biggest of these was
the rivalry between the freshmen
and the sophomores.
Back in 1927 the Sophomore
class was allowed to make up rules
and r e g u l a t i o n s which the
Freshmen had to obey.

were sophomores, ruled that any

Indicative of the issues considered relevant to
students and attitudes of students toward issues in
society can be seen in lectures delivered at the
school
during this period. Booker T. Washington
spoke on the Negro's position in society:"...like all
other race problems, will be solved by the success of
the people, and success always means recognition."
Another more flamboyant speaker, Dr. Sherwood
Eddy of the YMCA, argued that the worst problems
of society in 1928 were sex relationships and water
power monopolies. While in 1929, another speaker
declared liberalism was more tolerated since rotary
clubs and churches invited speakers who differed

annual election of Campus Queen.
The crowning and election of

MYSKANIA.
Prior to the election in the fall
of 1927, there was usually a big
controversy as to whether the
Campus Queen would be blonde
or brunettes.
In the previous four years two
blondes and two brunettes had
been elected and the students felt
that 1927 would be the deciding
year.
They would finally know if
blondes were more popular than
brunettes.
Campus Activities Day was
much the same in 1927 as it was
this year, in 1968. It was mainly a
time when Freshmen could sign
up with various clubs that they
were interested in.
On the first day that the
Freshmen arrived in 1927, they
were officially greeted by the
faculty and the President of the
College at both a tea and the
Convocation.
The latter remains basically
how it used to be. However, the
faculty members and the members
of the Freshmen class have grown
so drastically over the years that it
is no longer possible to have every
one attend as it once was.
Another tradition of the past
that is linked with class rivalries
and school spirit is the election of
a song leader and cheer leaders for
each class.
Also, officers used to be elected
from each class in the College.
There was even a time in the
history of the State College when
Freshmen were not allowed to
look Minerva in the face.
In 1938, such traditions as an
"all-college bonfire rally and pep
meeting" were popular.
After the bonfire all students
would join in a snake dance to
show that they were all friends.
This usually took place on
Activities Day in the fall of each
year.
Such events between Freshmen
and Sophomores as the banner
hunt, mascot hunt, and the tug of
war showed class rivalries in 1938.
Things often got out of hand.
Much like the present day
Freshman orientation, in 1938 the
College would send the girls to a
camp the weekend before school
began, and the boys to another
camp.
At the camp the Freshmen
would learn the traditions of the
school and a little about the
academic life.
Also, at the beginning of each
year the Juniors would hold a
reception at Draper Hall for the
incoming Freshmen and the
Sophomores would hold a party
for them.
Traditions used to be numerous
at the Stale Teachers College at
Albany. There was a tradition or
rule or regulation to govern every
move a student made.
Today, at the State University
at Albany, few of the old
traditions remain.

Beatles9 Film Trip:
Best Voyage Ever
Among Student Obligations:
Attend Chapel Each Morning
THE CAST OF "THE RIVALS" entertained the college community
in 1911. Such performances once highlighted the academic year.
Dear
Mayor
Corning
Sept. 30, I960
Without a doubt, the controversy between the City of Albany and
the State of New York concerning the future proposed site of our
campus at the country club is the most heated issue we have witnessed
during our three years here. Apparently the citizens of Albany have
overlooked very important economic and cultural factors which prove
the worth of our college to this community.
Do they realize that we as college students spend a conservative
estimate of 3/4 million dollars in Albany per year in small
purchases-toiletries, stationery, admission, and incidentals? The
importance of this lies in the fact that this money is a transfusion-new
money added to the circulation. This figure ignores the three to four
thousand parents who transport the students to college and return for
visits, the thousand oi more summer students and the visitors to the
college's conferences and meetings, all of whom arc spending money in
Albany's hotels, restaurants and stores.
Or do they realize that the stale budget puts into circulation through
the college about two and a half million dollars each year? Most of this
is in salaries and wages, which are spent right here in the Albany area.
Does any other area industry have a more direct economic effect? How
important is it to us all to keep such an employer in Albany?
Do they realize that we avail to them a staff of profesional experts in
many fields including scientists and psychologists, speech experts and
socialogists who serve on boards of Albany agencies and aid in the
Councils of Community Services?
Where do their children play? Who uses the twelve State College
tennis courts and the four Softball diamonds in Saint Mary's Park?
How many opportunities do other communities have for an Arena
Theater, a concert by Rise Stevens or Jerome H ines; or a lecture by
Hans Kohn? These cultural advantages offered by our college makes
Albany a better place to live. Without us would Albany be able to
afford these cultural opportunities?
We have mentioned only a few of the contributions State College
offers this community. Our objective in attending Albany State is to
become teachers, to prepare and educate the children of these Albany
citizens. U t us hope that they realize our worth and appreciate our
existence here.

t e a c h e r s . The piactice unit
changed from an elementary
school to a secondary school, now
known as Milne High School,
when the school became known as
the State Normal College.
In 1890 the Regents of the
University of the State of New
York made certain changes in the
structure of the school. The name
was cnanged to the New York
S t a t e Normal College and
i n s t r u c t i o n was limited to
professional subjects such as
philosophy of education, systems
of education, history of education
and methods of leaching all
subjects tuught in the public
schools at the time.
The school was reorganized in
1905 to provide a four year
course of study in liberal arts and
pedagogies. By 1909 there wore
158 academic and pedagogical
courses in such subjects as Latin,
Greek,
English,
history.

Dr. Milne organized the
curriculum into six courses of
instruction. The English course
was two weeks of work almost
solely in professional subjects
such as psychology, school
economy, school law, sanitary
science, practice teaching, and
methods of teaching the various
subjects. Graduates of the course
received a license to teach but no
degree.
A Student Army Training
Corps was set up on June 15,
1918 to p r o v i d e
military
instruction and equipment for all
men in the college. Known as
"Section B" it gave instruction in
military drill, auto mechanics,
carpentary, radio signal work,

After January 1, 1943 a
candidate to teach high school in
New York must have completed a
four year curriculum leading to a
baccalaureate degree and 30
s e m e s t e r hours in approved
advanced course.
By 1955 B.A. degrees were
being offered in English, French,
G e r m a n , Latin, mathematics,
Spanish, Social Studies, and
science. The B.S. degree was being
offered in Biology, Chemistry,
C o m m e r c e , mathematics and
Physics. The graduate program
provided work leading to
certification valid for teaching an
academic subject in high school as
well as the Master of Arts and
Master of Science in liio, (.'hem,
Physics, commerce education,

THE STATESMEN, the University's male chorus presented a number of selections Thursday evening
during a special choral program of the Music department. Their performance was well done as in the past.
Harvard Radcliffe Chorus
Provides Beautiful Music
bv Fran Dreher
The Harvard-Radcliffe Glee
Club presented a concert on
Sunday, December 8, at 7:30 p.m.
The concert was held in the
Campus Center Ballroom.
The Radcliffe choral society
began by singing "Dulcis Christe"
by Michel Angelo Grancini, Five
Carols by Peter Maxwell Davies
'' Hegyi Ejszakak" by Zoltan
Kodaly, •Heute ist Christus der
Herr g e b o r e n " by Heinrich
Schutz, "Helas M'amour" by
Clemens non Pape, and "Debat la
noste" by Claude Le Jeunc.
Their best song was an insertion
whose translation would be "See
the Gypsy Munching Cheese."
They made excellent use of
background vocal elfects, such as
humming; one piece was a solo
with accompaniment from the
chorus.
The Harvard Glee Club then
sang jointly with the Radcliffe
Choral Society, presenting Three
Songs by Claude Lc Jcune. The
addition of men's voices gave the
performance a churchlike quality:
together
they
formed
beautifully fullchorus.
T h e Harvard Glee Club
continued alone, singing "Der
Herr segne euch" by J.S. Bach,
"Wilt Thou, Unkind, Thus Leave
Me" by John Dowland, "Come,
Sirrah Jack Ho" by Thomas
Wcelkes, Five Slovak Songs by
Bcla Bartok, "Y pren ar y bryn"
by William Mathias, and "Up the
Street," a Harvard song.
Their best was "Wilt Thou,
Unkind, Thus Leave Me," their
low, full voices rendering the
words clearly with expression.
"Up the Street" was also very
enjoyable, during which a pianist
successfully imitated a drumroll.
After a short intermission the
two groups performed jointly
again. They sang three choruses
from
Requiem by Giuseppe
Verdi: Sanctus, Agnus Dei, and
Libera Me.
The conductor, Elliot Forbes,
was e x c e l l e n t . He briefly
explained many of the foreign
.(digs, and by his movements it
was evident that he experienced
every note. The audience, largely
composed of residents of the
Albany area, was absorbed

Christmas Tree Guide
Prepared For Students
To promote the spirit of safety
during the holiday season, the
following guide has been prepared
for the safe use of decorations.
NATURAL TREE
1. The location of the tree should
not block nor restrict the use of
halls or exits.
2. Only fresh-cut trees should be
used and the base of the tree kept
in fresh water.
3. NO OPEN FLAME should be
permitted in the area.
-I. Electric lights, if used on the
tree, should be the proper type
and display the UL label and bo
thoroughly inspected for electrical
defects before installation.
5. When illuminated, the tree
should not be left unattended.
0. All natural trees and houghs
will be treated with a fire

The Great Danes registered their second win of the season this past Tuesday when they defeated
Plattsburgh by a score of 64-59. This was the second win in a row for the Danes following their opening
season loss to Oneonta.
The high-scoring honors for the

Collins Announces
Classes Cancelled
In their first two games, the
Great Danes shot only 33% and
thus concentrated on ball control
and working for the good shoti
against Plattsburgh. The strategy
paid off as the hoopsters hit on
twenty-four of fifty-two shots.
Jack Duffy, who has been
seeing a lot of action this year
because of Scott Price's bad ankle
contributed eight points to the
team effort and was praised by
coach Doc Sauers for his fine
performance.

At the beginning of the
b a s k e t b a l l season everybody
predicted APA and Potter Club to
make a two team battle out of the
League I AMIA basketball series.
However, the way all of the teams
have looked so far in the games
played there could be as many ai.
five or six teams battling for the
league championship.
Potter Club seemed to have a
little difficulty putting away UFS,
a team not predicted to finish
high in the standings. M'ter barely
holding a 25-22 halftime lead, the
Club finally defeated UFS, 42-.'t6.
Smith and Masterson were high
scorers for Potter with 10 and
nine points respectively.
The Waterbuffloes squeaked by
the Warriors, 50-48. Portnoy was
high scorer for the WB's wilh 15
points. Carbone, of the Warriors,
was the games' high scorer wilh
19.
The Bruins ran all over Tappan,
71-2-1. That's the highest number
of points scored by an individual
team in League I play yet. The
Bruins had four men hit in double
figures as Palrei scored 18, Cole
12, Wheeler 12, and Flood 14.
The Bruins only allowed Tappan
eight points in the second half
after they held a 45-16 halftime
lead.
KB, another team picked to
have a good year had a little
trouble beating the Warriors.
After holding a 27-22 halftime
lead, KB went on to win by the
score of 54-49. Goldstein was the
high scorer for KB with 16 pis.
The Bruins defeated STB,

New Editors To Head ASP*
Enlightenment Their Goal
"We hope, through the ASP, to
c r e a t e an a t m o s p h e r e of
enlightenment and constructive
criticism which has not been
apparent previously."
So spoke ji|| paznik and Ira
Wolfman, who were elected
Co-Editors-In-Chief of the Albany
Student Press for next semester at
the last News Board meeting of
the Fall 1968 semester.
They were chosen to fill the
position after the resignation of
John Cromie, whose term will
expire at the end of this semester.
Looking forward to "a term of
challenges", the new Editors will
attempt "to make the ASP a
viable instrument of leadership en
this campus."
In the past the ASP has
concentrated on recording events.
"We want to remold it" stated the
Editors, "into an impetus for
forthcoming events.", thereby
concentrating on the future rather
than the past. A greater emphasis
will be placed on "analytic,
feature, and background stories."
"The need for an in-depth
knowledge and explanation of
issues pertinent to students today
is pressing. We hope to fill a void
that currently exists in this
area."
Miss Paznik has been a member
of the ASP staff since the Fall of
1966. She has served in the
capacities of staff reportor , news
editor, and managing editor. She
is a junior, Political Science major
from Merrick, Long Island.
Wolfman, a sophomore Political
Science major from Rosedale,
Queens, has been a member of the
ASP staff since January 1968. He
has served in the capacities of
staff reporter, associate news
editor, and news editor this term.
Elected to fill tha position of
News Editor was Tim Keeley.
Carol Schour will continue in her
capacity as Arts Editor. Gary Gelt
has been tlooted to the position of
Features Editor, Sports Editor for
Spring '69 will be Jim Winslow.

Wire Editor.
Miss Schour continuing as Arts
Editor, is a sophomore from
Rockville Centre, Long Island.
Winslow, a junior Political Science
ma jor from Kingston will be
advancing from his position of
Assistant Sports Editor.
Gelt, a sophomore English
major from North Bellmore, Long
Island, has previously served the
ASP in the capacity of Arts
Editor. He is the first Features
Editor on the ASP staff in over a
year.
Keeley chose as his Associate
News Editor Kathy Huseman, a
sophomore transfer student from
the State University College at
Oneonta. She has served the ASP
as a staff repot tor since September

"We will close classes at noon
Wednesday," President Evan R.
Collins announced to a full house
at The President's Conference
with Students yesterday.
Students packed the Patn.-on
Lounge as Collins explained that
the illness rate was remaining the
same and beginning to affect the
staff.
"In the interest of the health
and welfare of the students we
made the decision at noon
today," Collins remarked.
Dr. Clifton
C. Thorne,
Vice President
for Student
Affairs, informed students that
the residence halls will remain
open until Friday. "However,
regular Food Service will not be
operating."
In addition, the Library will
remain open.
Collins also mentioned the
favorable action of the University
Council in regards to residence
policies and athletics.
Symposium
Planned
For April
The
Faculty-Student
Committee for Equal Opportunity
is p r e p a r i n g plans for its
symposium
entitled
"Confrontation Politics." The
symposium is planned for April.
The work for the symposium is
supported
by O. William
Perlmutter, Dean of the College of
Arts ar.d Science. Interact, Forum
of Politics and the Freedom
Center are working along with the
Committee.
Under the main topic of
"Confrontation Politics" will be
three sub-topics: Black versus
White, Poor versus Rich, and
Student versus University.
Any individual or group
interested in working the the
Committee is invited to come to
the next meeting on Wed., Jan. 8,
at
8:00
in HU
290.
In answer to a question of
a uthority, Collins noted the
legality of the University Council.
Under a piovision of the
Education Act the president is
responsible to the University
Council which is in turn
responsible to the Board of
T r u s t e e s which is in turn
responsible to the legislature and
the taxpayers.
A memorandum
from
Chancellor Gould was also
presented by Collins which
elaborated on the increased room
rates for next year.
It was noted that the state
presently assumes about 30% of
the cost of each room. "The cost
of $550 compares favorably with
other colleges," Collins noted.
The cost of triples would be
$120 per year. This means that
when there are five men in a four
man suite the cost of the suite
not the cost of the actual room
goes down. "This has not been
the case in the past," Collins
remarked.
Thorne noted that several
things
are
taken
into
consideration for tripling. He
mentioned that the kind of
r o o m s and suite play a n
important part. "We may ask
students if they want to triple
when they apply for next year's
residence," Thorne commented.
In discussing the need for mure
off-campus
housing, Collins
stated that "We had a rail last
Monday evening from the
contractor saying that he was
bogged down with financing,
zoning, and other problems.
To compound the problem,
Collins noted that next week
5 0 0 - 6 0 0 s t u d e n t s may be
displaced if the Mall project
comes up into the area where
they arc now renting apartments.
In other business, a student
raised a complaint abouf'three
large dogs roaming in the Dutch
Quad dining hall and the snack
bar."
Collins came back with "This
campus was surely not designed
for dogs" which ended the
conference on a light note.
