appropriately by. the students present. We applaud their considerate
Their succinct and pointed questions .revealed the gross
miscalculations and lack of understanding on the part of the Senate in
. its passage of the anti-riot bill. We hope that members of the
Assembly, and particularly the special task force on campus
disturbances, will consider these questions, and the conduct of the
students who asked them, when similar legislation comes before them.
What was made most clear to Senator Flynn is the students' desire
for changes in the social structure and social reality of a democracy.
That we know the legislature will make laws to preserve a rigid status
quo, socially unsatisfactory for those who believe in democracy, that
we are prepared to sacrifice for changes in that status quo, was the
beautiful and obvious result of the dialogue that took place.
That we must organize and coordinate our ideas and actions in
order to mobilize as a powerful political force for change is clearly the
next step. We must not let the legislature of the State of New York, or
the Congress of the United States, forget the good intentions of the
majority; we cannot leave thern to freely practice their insane follies.
We suggest that students here organize now, support the existing
organizations, and that these organizations coalesce and unify against
:uch anti-democratic measures.

To the Editor: Re: Robert Cutty's review of THE
To compare THE WORD with PRIMER, going so
far as to speak of "PRIMER alumnus" is to make the
assumption that both magazines have the same goal.
Note that one is a University Review, the other a
And further, because of this difference, the cannot
be reviewed using the same criteria. A University
Review, such as PRIMER, is necessarily a
compendium of separate pieces—there is no specific
unity striven for. A magazine, such as THE WORD is
a specific unifying element. Mr. Cutty's review
confuses this distinction: he fails to see the forest for
the trees. His review is of pieces, not of a magazine.
It is interesting, albeit unfortunate, that no
mention was made of the layout of THE WORD. The
specific handling of space and contrast was done
purposefully. Mr. Cutty mentions his approval of the
photography, but not in the context of its relation to
the accompanying writing.
Of course, if the writing is placed on the
photograph, the relation does become more obvious.
Mr. Cutty did discern this much. Consideration of its
composition may have provided Mr. Cutty with the
insight that THE WORD is more than a random
sampling of SUNYA literary talent.

To the Editors:
The constitution of central council section 4 a&b
states that the president and vice president of
central council shall be elected by a two-thirds vote
of its (central council's) total membership instead of
a direct vote by a majority of the student body.
If one of the aims of central council is to bring
the university community closer together than why
should its officers remove themselves from the
control of their constituents?
This aloof s t y l e of e x e c u t i v e makes
commonpurposes and goals harder to achieve among
the many diverse facets of campus life. In an age of
student responsibility and awareness it seems
apalling that such high positions so vital to a student
body's best interests are once removed from their
direct control.
Thus on Monday March 10 there will be a
referendum on all the dinner lines asking people to
display their support for the direct election of the
president and vice president of central council in the
hope that central council will listen to the wishes of
its voting public and rectify a situation which has

To the Editors:
The letter which I wrote to your paper was written
prior to my decision to accept an invitation of the
International Student Group to participate in the
discussion on Zionism. While this decision did not
turn into a "superfluous shouting" match and was
reasonable and quiet, it al s o was not a true dialogue.
Even had Am Yisrael participated, it did not provide
a framework for true understanding. We must all
work together to find better frameworks for using
our contact on campus for that end. If any persons

To the Editors:
Concerning Mr. Rosenberg's Off Center column of
February 14, I should like to point out some
misconception on the author's part. His discussion is
largely an emotional appeal that seems to be outside
of the realm of reason.
His major address is to the el-fatah as
representative of Hitler's troops. However, they act
as sabateurs and foreign agents in Israel's occupied
lands and Israel proper. This appears to parallel more
closely Hitler's opponents. The use of Hitler's name
is clearly intended to imply a detrimental outlook on
Jews when in fact, their orientation is towards
Israelis and their agents as can be documented by the
literature described in the February 11 issue in the
"Hebrew Students Alliance" advertisement. This
"Anti-Zionist" propoganda" addresses itself to
Zionists who aid or participate in Israeli expansion,
not to the Jew as a people.
As to the lack of popular support for the el-fatah
and their militant behavior, these statements are also
inflammatory and unsupported. The el-fatah lacks
governmental support due to the threat of an aroused
public. The people support the el-fatah as the only
effective force against the Israeli. Their militant
behavior is regretable, but equally as understandable
as the activities of the Irgun and Stern gangs (Mary
Ellen Brown, Communications, February 14). Mr.
Rosenburg has again used inflammatory inferences
without reasoning out the fallacies entailed in his

Is America Becoming
A Militaristic Society?
The answer was obvious to all present, even before the panelists
began discussion. Anyone who had the desire to attend something
billed as the "First National Convocation On the Challenge of
Building Peace," paying prices ranging from $10 (for students) to $50
and upwards to attend a luncheon at the NY Hilton, was going to
answer in the affirmative to the question "Is America Becoming A
Militaristic Society?"
The interest that this discussion was to generate lit in its four
major panelists, with their widely divergent backgrounds and
approaches. There was Seymour Mehlman of Columbia University,
professor of Industrial management; a man attacking the immenseness
and the power of the "killing industry" in this nation which has
brought us to a point where we now control weapons capable of
"annihilating the world's population thirty times over."
There was Floyd McKissick, a former director of CORE—first and
foremost a black man, and concerned with a society in which the
black man "was the victim"... a society which allowed the creation of
a Military-Industrial Complex which McKissick asserted was a "racist
concept" by the white man, who visioned himself as "savior to a
colored world."
Then there was Prof. Kenneth Boulding of the
University of Colorado, who informed us that
America was not becoming a militaristic society.
"We've been one since our birth as a nation. We were
conceived in violence and militarism led us through
the early years."
Paul Booth, young and hopeful, also contributed.
He saw the U. S.' military establishment being
attacked by both the New Left and the Black
Militants—and he saw this as a move away from the
vast complex's growth.
The panel, one of the morning's concurrent panels
at The Hilton, was chaired by John Gilligan,
unsuccessful "dovish" candidate for U.S. Senate from
Ohio last year. It was dominated by the overpowering
presences of McKissick and Mehlman—two men
intense in their views; two men adamant in their
McKissick dwelt upon the racism he saw as so
blatant in every aspect of American history and
warfare. In a somewhat rambling presentation, he
nevertheless captured complete attention of an
audience somewhat aghast at his views, yet absorbed
in his delivery. The Vietnam War was simply another
example of "the white men's view of superiority."
The Black in America would get nothing, he decried,
until "you stop killing my brother over in Southeast
Asia." Be it the Indians or the Black Man or the
Indonesian or the Japanese, the white feeling of
superiority was going to express itself violently, he
Mehlman asked all those present to examine the
cost of a war-like nation's preparations for greater
and greater annihilation capabilities and told us that
"To continue as we are now is to take the High Road
to the End of the World—World War III." He decried
the stupidity of the ABM system, and the immense
cost it would entail. He spat out his disdain for
Senator Russell of Georgia—-who, according to
Mehlman in the Senate debute on ABM had said, "If
there is to be nuclear war, and all but an Adam and
an Eve are to be annihilated—I want them to be an
American Adam and Eve."
Mehlman hit hard on the responsibility of the
taxpayer to say " N o " to burgeoning military
expenditures by the federal government.
When a student in the audience asked Mehlman if
he wasn't overemphasizing the role of lessening
monetary availability to the military, and ignoring the
basic attitude of militarism prevalent in today's
society, Mehlman snapped back "Money is power."
The answer was so obvious that it didn't even
deserve its billing as lead question to a panel of
d i s t i n g u i s h e d m e n . We all saw America's
militarism—and after the session with Mehlman and
McKissick, we were overwhelmed by its power and its
grip on America's mentality.

• tolerate and aid them; we are strong enough to
endure enmity."
In that area of the world, Sheehan continued, a
Communist government may be the best available.
Another point he introduced was that for some
nations revolution is the established order.
However, in order to prevent violent change, the
U.S. supports "suppressive violence for the
maintenance of the status quo, the maintenance of
social injustice.
"Only by violence can the masses seek to change
their conditions.
"The loss of money is worth it if it avoids the
hatred of a suffering people.
"We may conduct ourselves in Asia most usefully

country we aid," and not by maintaining American

Howard Zinn
Professor of government at Boston University,
Howard Zinn was the last and most emotional
panelist to analyse the whole mess.
He could not understand the American desire to
gather in conferences to promote change.
"Such conferences, as the one in which we are
now participating, dull the intensity of feeling we
should have about the condition of the world.
"Where we have gone wrong in the past was in
the inability to see how really bad it was. When we
finally do see, it is always too late.

"We are just beginning to see the explosions that
will take place for people are trying desperately to
say something that we will not listen to.
Although Zinn's voice was low and his words
halting, his intense emotional involvement with
what he was saying was striking.
"The cry of the poor," he said, "is not always
just but if you do not listen t o it, you will never
know what justice is."
We cannot, he feels, be concerned with the world
condition by acting In the capacity of policeman.
Our trouble now is with "keeping our basis as n

Rich's Records
Hich Margison ended his victory career last Saturday night in
Syracuse and did it in true form as he scored twenty-eight points,
caused numerous turnovers, and scored the tying and winning baskets.
"Number 30" will take several school records with him as he leaves
Albany State.'
1. He broke the all-time scoring record (three years) held by Don
Cohen '61 (1,365) with a record 1/109 points.
2. He now holds the one season scoring record with 530 points.
3. He holds the one season field goal record with 199.
4. His career average of 21.0 tops all State players ever.
In the NCAA regional tourney, Rich was named to the all-star
team. He has also made the all-star team in the Capital District
Tourney for the past two years. He was on numerous All-East teams
this year and last and was named to the UPI honorable mention
all-America list this year.
Beyond all these records, Rich will be remembered by every sould
who saw Him play, not only for his scoring ability and artistry in all
phases of the game, but also because he was a real winner in every
sense of the word.

Fewer people write about the
"Vietnam problem" today,
because fewer people read about
it. The audience, composed
previously of public and atudents,
has about vanished. Both groups
have shifted their focus of
interest, the students to the
Oppressors of Mankind, the public
to the students.
A striking similarity can be seen
in another field: who today writes
or reads about the "civil rights
problem"? Here too an audience
is lacking; and again, it is because
the blacks and the public have

too the atudents have shifted their
attack from Vietnam to people

Both groups have a great deal
of logic behind their effort:, even
if they did destroy the audience.
The black, who hated his
condition, and who turned his
anger toward that condition, now
directs his anger at the people
who gave him that condition.
Similarly, the student, who hated
the Vietnam war, and who turned
his anger against that war, now
directs his anger at the people
who gave him that war.

Poll's Results
On the surface, the rendu of.the recruitment poll are a very
impressive victory for the advocates of the "open campus" policy.
Unfortunatly, we cannot accept the results as an accurate picture of
the views of 3,000 informed voters.
It is well and good that those who supported the concept of open
campus went out and worked their hardest for that side of the
question. They educated the electorate to their point of view, and
managed to stir up enough Interest to lure a record number of voters
to the polls.
But th*pott it—If fdled. Earlier last week, we stated that we saw the
poll as a definite good, for it stimulated discussion and provoked
thought. We gave the student body too much credit. Too l a t e , w e
discovered that it stimulated only irrational discussion, dealing in high
moral terms and concepts rather than practical considerations, as they
related to those very concepts.
The blame is not to be placed specifically in one particular place.
The responsibility was lodged, however, within a few groups.
Those who inaugurated the poll and were responsible for its being
run properly failed to. elucidate both sides of the argument. More
importantly, they failed to make any provision to make sure that both
sides would be heard in any rational manner. It stands to reason that
if there was sufficient grounds for holding the poll, then the reasoning
on both sides carried some degree of merit. However, the polls'
initiators seemed more interested in breaking voting records, than in
helping students understand the reasons why the poll was necessary in
the first place.
Those who supported the concept of closed or slective campus
recruiftnent made something less than a feeble effort to put their
points across. There was, as has been stated already, merit in the
arguments put forward by some of the advocates of closed campus,
especially concerning such matters as the question of priority of
allocation of funds to placement service rather than something
concerned with academic life. However, when discussion with the
opposition took place, the majority of those who supported closed
campus did so on either irrational grounds or by utilizing faulty logic.
If the electorate had been better educated (undeniably, a fault of
this newspaper also) as to both sides of the question, the results
problably would not have varied to any large extent from those
recorded. But to our way of thinking, the results would have been far
more valid. As it is now, we consider the results of this poll of liitle
worth. The issues became too confused, too muddled, for them to be
understood by the average voter. It seemed to be too much a division
between goodf OPEN CAMPUS—We're i for freedom of speech!") and
bad (CLOSED CAMPUS-~We don't give a damn about freedom of
There were valid points in the arguments of the supporters of the
closed campus policy. Due to an abdication of responsibility on the
part of those who were responsbile for running the poll, and due to
the lack of organization on the part of the closed campus advocates,
those constructive and logical statements were never heard.
Before President Collins uses the results of this poll as conclusive,
proof of the overwhelming support for an open campus policy, we
urge him to inspect the circumstances under which the voting
proceeded. ->-&

rress freedom
SUNY's Board of Trustees has proposed a policy statement which
would require the free admission of all news media to any campus
event that is open to the public.
In other words, when the general public (students and the Albany
community) is invited to attend a student event, such as an SDS
confernece, the newsmen arc also automatically invited free of charge.
From past experience we know that student activities on this
campus have not been treated at all fairly by the outside press.
Although we agree with the Trustees "Whereas it is the public's
right to know about those matters which may fall into the public
realm," we do not believe that the public can know the truth from the
media's misrepresentation of facts, misquotes and general lack of
understanding in reporting.
We can no longer trust newspapers, radio or TV to report events
accurately. It is common knowledge that their coverage is directed
toward sensationalism. In addition, they view events, particularly
student administered events, through myopic established eyes.
We arc not afraid of new;, coverage, we arc apprehensive and with
good reason, of news being colored to fit what an audience wants to
If the press can be discrimanting in its coverage of campus events,
those who sponsor such events must be allowed the freedom to be
discriminating in its use of the press.
If the press is to be excluded, the event must be advertised as
"closed" campus event, i.e. not open to the public.

POLICY NOTE: The aim of the Albany Student Press this term is to
give correct and accurate, but incisive and descriptive, views of the

at subjective impressions along with factual reporting. We have also
given our reporters the freedom of expression of mood and
background which may be seen as "coloring the news". We do this not

"We are facing something which is probably the most serious
problem the University has ever faced," declared Steve Cherniske of
the Albany Student Alliance in connection with the proposed budget
Students from the 17 campuses of the City University (estimated
between 6,000 and 10,000 in number) will be arriving at the Capitol
12:00 noon Tuesday, March 18. If Albany Students support this
march, it is probable that some reciprocal action will take place and
City College students will come back up on Monday, March 24, to aid
the SUNY march.
Students wishing to participate in the March 18 movement are
urged to attend a coordination meeting today, 2:00 in HU 137.

Half fare dilemma
l o the editors:
The way things are going, you and your readers
are about to lose their privilege to fly at half-fare.
For some reason, practically no one in the
country felt concerned enough about it to file a
brief with the CAB on behalf of the students who
are the users of the cards. National Student
Marketing Corporation was the first to intervene,
followed only by the NSA and the Campus
Americans for Democratic Action.
We cannot, however, win the fight alone. We
need your help. Hearings before the CAB are on
March 12,1969. If we are not successful, everyone
of you, regardless of age, will have to pay full fare
and the half-fare cards which you now hold will be
We feel that if your readers were fully aware of
the situation, they and their parents would want to
do something about it. The best thing to be done at
this point is to send us letters of protest at the
cancellation of the half-fare program. We will make
sure they are forwarded to Congress, the CAB or
wherever they will do the most good.
Time is of the essence!

seriously consider the dilemma of a member of the
Romance Language Department at the University,
Mrs. Maryon Lopez—who has been released from
employment as of June, 1969.
Mrs. Lopez has not yet been allowed a hearing on
her dismissal, nor even a clear explanation of the
department's decision. (Her dismissal was announced
last November.) It was implied that her ability in
teaching was not sufficient, but on no concrete
grounds. No one observed her classes or received
complaints from students.
What exactly are the criteria of an "efficient"
teacher in the eyes of a department that claims itself
to be "democratic" in nature, and that espouses
"academic freedom?"
Mr. Lopez refused to resign after having been so
requested, staling that she personally could not
justify a resignation, since she felt that she had been
conducting her classes (promoting the learning
process) to meet the needs of her students and her
own standards.
She cannot compromise on the issue, because it
involves a conflict between her attitudes toward
education and the demands of the administration.
It is impossible to objectively describe a teacher's
way of promoting learning, but there are several
student* who would "testify" in Mrs. Lopez's behalf
reaffirming her capabilities and effectiveness in tht
"classroom", as well as in the time devoted to
personal attention outside the formal learning
As a student body, as a faculty, as a school, we are
presented with an on-the-line issue: What is the image
of education? How narrow are our sights? Mrs.
Lopez's position is a vital case in point. Where do we
go from here?

The Albany Student Press assumes no
responsibility for opinions expressed in its
columns and communications as such expressions
do not necessarily reflect its views.
An increase in the faculty-student ratio, a decrease in the number
of books purchased by the library, a cut down in the amount of
necessary supplies needed by faculty in order to properly educate the
students, more large lecture classes, and basically a general decline in
the quality of education will be the problems the New York State
University System will face next year.
These problems stem from the fact that the budget of $443 million

This is not a 5% cut as some would lead the students to believe, but
a devastating 14% cut.
