by Debbie Hummel
Compiled by Norm Rich
ALBANY, Feb. 12--Spurred by
the specter of the Columbia
disturbance, the State Senate
voted Wednesday to deny state
aid to unruly students.
Sponsored by Sen. John E.
Flynn, Rep. of Yonkers, the bill
penalizes any student convicted of

"These young people are now
getting out of line completely,
especially when the taxpayer is
subsidizing their education,"
asserted Sen. Flynn, summing up
the debate for the G.O.F.
On the other side, Democratic
Senator Harrison J. Goidin noted,
"We are indulging our passion for
shallow vindictivenesss...the other
side (GOP) is more interested in
saving money than in solving the
serious social problems which
confront us."
However over one-quarter of
the Democrats did indeed vote
"yea" resulting in a final vote of
37-15. The bill is now passed on
to the Assembly.
Last ye:.r, following the Columbia
episode, Republican Majority
Leader Earl Brydgcs succeeded in
passing a similar bill, differing
from the present bill only in that
the power to usurp aid rested with
the Board of Regents.
Brydes bill was later killed by a
Assembly. That House is now in
Republican hands. Thus passage
of the bill now appears imminent.

Registration for the "great movement" weekend, sponsored by the
Niagara Region of Students for a Democratic Society ( SDS ) (upstate
N.Y.) will take place in the Campus Center noon Friday and continue
through Sunday as the events of the weekend unfold.
The two-dollar registration fee will be used by SDS to help support
their Spring and Summer programs. Conference literature and housing
will be assigned at registration.
Newsreels will be shown today from 4-6 p.m. and Saturday from
6-7:16, at a location to be announced. The films to be shown will
feature the Columbia revolt, the Black Panthers, and Chicago, created
by radical filmmaker Norm Fruchter.
Two proposals to be discussed at a general meeting tonight at 7
p.m. in LR 3 will be plans for a summer project and an idea for
coordinated regional action against the military on college and high
school campuses.
From 8-9 Friday night in LR 3, SDS will sponsor the Pagaent
Players, a New York street theatre group. Following this will be a
panel discussion from 9-11 p.m. Chip Marshal, discussing ROTC and
military on campus and the Draft; Bernadine Dohrn,
inter-organization secretary of SDS, on woman's liberation; Jeff
Gordon, of the Progressive Labor Party, on labor organizing; and Walt
Shepar, on community colleges, will be among the panelists.
On Saturday, February 15, at 9:30 a.m., announcements and
workshop rearrangements will be made in LR 3. This is to be followed
by the workshops in classrooms of the Humanities Building.
The Conference workshops will cover a wide variety of topics,
including guerilla theatre, high schools, underground press, radical
teaching, problems of capitalism, Cuba, racism, socialism, and
imperialism. Some resource people present at the workshops will be
Steve Halliwell, former national officer of SDS; Harry Magdoff, of a
new school for social research; Ted Gold, of Teachers for a
Democratic Society; Nick Freudenberg, a high school organizer; Paul
Sweezy, editor of the Monthly Review; Jim Jacobs, community
organizer in Detroit NOC; and Mike Klare, of the North American
Congress on Latin America (NACLA).
This conference will be concluded Sunday morning from 10 until
noon, after which will be a break until 1 p.m. Workshops will be
resumed from 1-3 p.m. in the same locations. Newsreel films will also
be shown Sunday at a time and location to be announced.
Among the plans of the four-point program adopted by the Niagara
regional SDS will be for "each chapter to research the power
relationship between its school and the immediate community." This
reasearch will be presented at the next quarterly regional convention.
"Each district is to develop an integrated-district program with
respect to its member chapters and non-student constituencies. The
districts are to develop district consciousness through a district
newspaper, a di strict program, and district assemblies.
"The program also stresses that Niagarans develop regional
consciousness through a regional newspaper, district-linking programs,
and regional conventions. Regional travelers and a regional treasury
are necessary to implement this program."

According to Duncan Nixon, President of Central

mandatory for Fall 1969. He said that the tax can
be made mandatory by only two methods. These
are: 1. a Central Council elected by the entire
student body could vote to make tax mandatory or

held in which a proposal to make the tax

result, the Arts Coordinating

President Evan R. Collins.
Comprised of faculty members

1967 as a club to be
raised to varsity status when it
was deemed ready, the swim dub
first swam at the Albany Public
Bath on Central Avenue two
nights each week. Because of the
inconvenience of practicing off
campus, the turnout was low.
T u r n o u t s for the team
continued to be low despite the

close to victory in several meets,
the necessity of forfeiting up to

swimmers) was fatal.
At Wednesday's meeting, it was
the feelingof the club members
that their lack of numbers may be
because of lack of incentive.
Swimming, a largely individual
sport, takes much dedication and
demands rewards.
At present, the team felt, there
is no incentive to go out and stay
out for the team because there are
few rewards. To solve this
problem, the team requested that

Great Danes Down Ithaca
73 -66 Victory Is No. 11
The Danea came out in thesecond half with the same game
plan, but the Bombers changed
their defense to a pressing zone.
After a cold shooting spell abated,
the Danes quickly caught up and
went ahead to stay 63-51 at 10:40
left in the game.
With a twelve point lead and
:40 seconds to go, Coach Sauers
emptied his bench—the game was
over. The buzzer sounded as the
scoreboard registered a 73-66
Albany triumph.
Contributing greatly t o the
victory were subs Ed Arsenau and
Jim Sandy. Sandy scored eight
points, several in key moments.
Arsenau, although not scoring,
was a tiger on defense and caused
several Ithaca turnovers.
For the first time this season,
five Albany players were in
double figures. Jim Caverly and
i Jack Adams scored ten each. Jack
Jordan had fourteen markers.
Scott Price had fifteen points and
Rich Margison had sixteen.
Margison, hitting well under his
average of twenty-one points per
game, was double teamed all night
by the Ithacans, but turned in a
fine performance on defense—not
to mention the sateen markers.
It was evident ifom the outset
of Wednesday's State-Ithaca game
t h a t t h e r e was something
different, something important
about this particular occasion.
The biggest crowd of the season
sensed it when they were handed
song sheets as they came in the
doors of the State gym. Albany
had a ten game winning streak and
was h o p i n g for an NCAA
tournament bid.
This very Ithaca club had
spoiled a fourteen game streak last
year and their recent play pointed
to another similar performance.
The blue and gold Bombers
held a decided height advantage
with 6-5 All-America candidate
Greg Albano and 6-3 Ed Kowalski
up front for them. The opening
tap saw Jack Adams score for
Albany on a driving layup.
From there, the lead changed
hands throughout the half until
Ithaca held a slim 35-33 edge at
the half.
Albano scored time after time
from in close for the Bombers and
proved his all-star status. A big
disappointment for Ithaca had to
be the sloppy play of Kowalski as
he picked up three quick fouls
and was forced to the bench.
Jim Caverly, senior forward
from Rochester, broke an Albany
State record during the game as he
contributed nine assists. The'old
mark was set two years ago by
Mike Bloom ('67) who had eight
in a single game.
Albany was beaten under the
as they
out-rebounded by the taller team,
45-38. The formula for victory
was what seemed to be the best
"team" effort to date. The Danes
shot a solid 27 for 57 from the
floor for a 47% mark.
The Danes will take on their
t r a d i t i o n a l rivals, the Siena

State - Siena Tonight
Tonight's game against Siena College of Loudonville will be the
twenty-fifth meeting of the Great Danes and their local rivals. Always
a game in which past records and statistics mean little or nothing, a
win for State could insure a well deserved NCAA regional tournament
bid. Beyond this, even, no Albany basketball fan, alumnus or student
would consider the season a success without the sweet feeling of a
victory over their arch-rival.
The Indians hold a slim 11-13 edge in games in the series, but this is
due to, largely, their performances against the old Teachers' College of
the 1930-60 variety. In those days, the Indians were nationally ranked
and took a victory over the "Teachers" as a matter of course.
The first State-Siena contest was held in 1934 with Siena on the
winning end of the score. They went on to win the next five straight
games against Albany and, in fact, State did not win against Siena
until Coach "Doc" Sauers arrived on the scene in 1956. After losing
his first encounter that year, Sauers upset a strong Siena club, 62-46.
Albany has won the last four outings against the Indians. They won
59-58 in this year's Capital City Tournament Championship game.
Before that they had beaten Siena 76-75, 79-72, and 69-62 in the
1967 Tournament final. In fact, State has met Siena for the City
Tournament championship six out of the eight years that the tourney
has been played. State, Rensselaer Poly, and Union—will take part in
the Christmas tournament.)
Albany State's hardcourters are riding the crest of an eleven-game
win streak with their most recent win being over Ithaca College,
73-66. Siena lost its most recent outing, 82-79 to Marist College of
Poughkeepsie. The Indians are 8-9 on the year.
Again, as has happened all season long, State will be at a height
disadvantage. Siena has a pair of 6-7 men up front in Tom Sheridan
and Bob Herman. Herman, along with Tom Walsh are the leading
scorers for Siena. Siena will average 6-5, while State will start a team
averaging about 6-0. Siena is the tallest team State has had to face
thus far this season.
EDITOR'S NOTE: As has already been said, forgetting statistics and
records, the State-Siena game could only turn out any one of two
ways: State could win, or Siena could win-but the latter doesn't seem
either appealing or probable.
FrUfey, February 21,1969
The Faculty Senate of the University in an expression of opposition
to the State Senate bill (S524) affecting eligibility of students for
financial assistance, is urging members of the Assembly of New York
State Legislature to defeat the bill.
(The bill as passed by the Assembly is appended at the end of this
In action taken at a special meeting Tuesday afternoon, the faculty
body adopted a motion pointing to what it described as a basic defect
in the measure; namely, "that it represents a punitive rather than a
constructive approach to the problems occasioned by the expression
of dissent in a free society."
Indicating that it shares the concern for resolving problems which
sometimes arise from expressed dissent, the Faculty Senate gave five
reasons for its opposition to the bill.
The measure would rescind, on grounds of legal offense, financial
aid originally awarded for academic promise; would infringe upon the
right of universities to govern themselves in academic affairs since it
would mandate that university officials implement its provisions and
prescribe a criterion for administration of scholarships; would
discriminate against economically disadvantaged students since it
would threaten only those students whose need requires them to use
scholarship aid; and would subject students to more extreme
penalities than others who come into conflict with the law.
Doc Sauers is not pleased over outcome of this decision, but
he was pleased with State's 73-66 win over Ithaca. Siena is tonight's problem!

Meal plans announced for fall
students offered five choices
Robert Cooley, Director of Faculty Student Association, this week announced the meal plan options
that students will be able to choose from for the academic year 1969-1970. There are basically five plans,
two of which offer the Kosher option. Unlike past years, students will be able to sign up for meals on either
a semester or year basis.
The following is a list of meal plans to be offered: 1. 20 meals
$310 semester,$620 year
20 Kosher meals
$380 semester,$780 year
2 . 1 4 meals
$250 semester,$500 year
14 Kosher meals
$315 semester,$630 year
3. 13 meals (6 lunches-7 dinners )
$280 semester,$560year
4. 7 meals (Dinner only )
$225 semester,$450 year
5. 5 meals (Lunches only )
$80 semester,$ 160 year
In issuing the five choices of meal plans, Food Service announced that they were discontinuing the
offering of second servings. They have also reserved the right to change the prices on the above plans at the
semester break if financial studies, show that the pricing is inadequate. Revision might be necessary in view
of unknowns in the five plans, such as missed meal factors, etc. Mr. Cooley also announced that prices on
Kosher meals would have to be increased because "present charges do not begin to cover our cost."
Many students expressed a desire to see a 14 meal plan allowing a choice of any two meals each day.
According to Mr. Cooley this could not be implemented because lunches are so much more expensive.
Also, any student who, because of class conflicts, has less that half an hour to eat, may get a pass to eat
at the Campus Center. Class cards, student IDs and meal cards should be brought tb the Housing Office. Mr.
Cooley added a note of caution. This year LAAC requested Food Service to provide prices on seven meal
plans. Food Service came up with five plans which they felt would "cover the needs of all students." If
these plans fail to meet student needs, however, next year they may be requested to price ten plans and
thus necessitate a straight cash or modified cash form of food service.

The motion stated that the measure is ambiguous and its
enforcement could involve universities in endless conflicts with
students, since the offenses requiring action are so broadly defined in
the measure.
A copy of the motion approved by the 66-member body- was

Faculty Senate, to the office of the Speaker of the Assembly, Perry B.
Duryea, and to the Clerk of the Assembly.

vote of 38 to 15 passed the following bill:

Last night Central Council
made emphatic its positionon the
State Riot Bill presently pending
in the New York State Assembly.
In a forceful position statement
Council condemned the riot bill
on a multitude of grounds.
The bill, contended Council,
would attempt "to violate basic
rights 'and liberties" of' the
s t u d e n t . Specifically Council
asserted that the bill seeks to
regulate-conduct, a role now set
aside for the university. In doing
so the State would turn state aid
i n t o a punitive instrument,
maligning its intended function of
fostering higher education.
Secondly Council noted that
the bill does not discriminate
between minor and major crimes.
Thus a student convicted of a
misdemeanor would suffer "cruel
and unusual punishment", being
reprimanded in the usual mannerby the Penal Code, and theft
facing the additional loss of his
Hence, for the above and
numerous other reasons, the
position statement passed Council
by u vote of 24-0. It was then
distributed to all local media in
the hopes of having some direct
affect upon the Assembly.
Also, Vic Looper announced in
his report to Council that LAAC
has proposed two fundamental
changes in university living
regulations. Taking the form of a
bill, LAAC has recommended that
