Yes, the Department of Defense really does sponsor research right
here on the Albany State campus. The government's most perverted
instrument for destruction has planted itself right in our midst.
But there are other things to consider about this issue before we
crazily destroy anything, including our own raging minds. The
research projects being sponsored by DoD appears and are, quite
harmless when viewed in a purely scientific perspective. That is, one
can pass off DOD sponsored research as simply contributing to the
existing body of knowledge-the pursuit of knowledge for
knowledge's sake.
We must recognize that contemporary requirements necessitate the
funding of such pursuits. And money is scarce. However, the point
must not be lost that any orgnization that sponsors research will do so
only if that project will contribute to the organization's mission.
The Department of Defense is one of the few organizations that has
enough money to support many research projects that provide either
direct or only incidental contributions to its mission.
More to point (oh, how many points to consider), DoD would not
sponsor research that did not substantiate its own future missions.
It is necessary, therefore to consider exactly what that mission is.
We couldn't say. We sec the Defense Department as a conglomerate
industry developing exciting new ways to kill people at home and
around the world. We see the perverted development of chemical and
biological warfare, the perpetuation of the cold-war mentality
specifically through the development of ABM. We see the mentality as
pervading the character of all Americans, of the American society
collectively, closing minds to intellectual and spiritual development.
We must, in view of this, condemn Ihe taking of money from such
an organization. We cannot support even research that may be quite
humanly beneficial if it is tainted with money from an organization
that will twist the benefit into human horror.
Election Matters
The elections just over yesterday for University Senate did more
than merely elect 22 students to the Senate, they pointed out some
important matters which must be attended to.
The first matter for consideration is the role of Central Council in
the new University-Student Governance System. Obviously,
University Senate is now the most important legislative body on
campus; Council is now a less body and her place with respect to
University Senate should be made clear.
We feel it is highly important that there be some effective
communication between student "government" as it is now
constituted, and the students on the University governing board.
We urge Council to examine how this can best be accomplished. We
also feel a thorough examination of the entire structure of Student
Association government is imperative at this point.
Another development which was highlighted by the elections were
the ineffective methods of campaigning currently common practice on
campus,
We felt that the campaign for University Senate was, on the whole,
unsatisfying. Although there was a feeble attempt at communication,
it was for the most part ineffective.
We feel that something must be done to make the candidates more
responsible to the student body; as the situation exists currently,
there still is little discussion, really, of issues and next to no contact
between candidate and constituency.
In this election in particular, a knowledge of all candidates was next
to impossible. The space provided in this paper was not really enough
to allow all candidates to fully develop then points; yet, the number
of essays to read was almost oppressive.
The planned rally was another failure; its original concept was
faulty, but student response was amazingly apathetic.
In previous years, smaller scale operations were for more successful
than this years rally, one of the basic reasons for this was, again, Ihe
large number of candidates running this year.
All in all, one point comes through; Ihe candidates were for Ihe
most part, either unable or unwilling to reach the mass of students.
One understandable reasonf for this failure was that each candidate
had a constituency of 8,000 undergraduates. If, perhaps, the next
time, students are elected to Senate a ratio system could be used, (i.e.,
electing from living areas or classes), perhaps the contact could he
greater and more fruitful.
We urge council (or any other appropriate body) to examine these
questions and attempt to devise solutions which will produce heller,
more effective elections.
Cows
We have not printed the official ballot counts for the losers in Ihe
exciting race for Faculty Senate as we feel it is absolutely unnecessary
public knowledge (although it is available for anyone interested
enough), and such a display may, in some cases, be cruel. The
candidates can find out their position and toll anyone they please.
Central Council will probably have three cows, but...

responsibility
To the Editors;
On the front page of your October 17 issue,
you had a picture of the reading of the VietNam
war dead. Your caption for this picture read:
"Students deploring the death culture, listening to
the names of those murdered by the government of
these United States."
I object to this caption for several reasons.
Firstly, you have no right to editorialize your views
on the front page of our newspaper. ASP is
sponsored by funds from all of the students and is,
to the best of my knowledge, a non- partisan
publication. I do not object to the statement of
•our opinions but it should be in the appropriate
1 lace; the eitorial page.
I object to the caption, secondly, because it is
so foolish. I expect such nonsense on the front page
of Pravda with the example of LBJ, you can see that
dead Americans are very bad politics for the nem
who are leading our government. Beyond that, by
defaming our government, you are defaming the
A m e r i c a n p e o p l e f o r they p u t E i s e n h o w e r ,
Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon into power. The
administrations of these men were and are a
manifestation of the will of the majority of hie
American poeple at the time of their elections. You
are calling the American people murderers and I
object to that very strongly. I realize that I am
lucky to live in this country with its opportunities. I
suggest that you think about this and refrain from
further childish impudence. Perhaps the United
States is wrong in its Vietnamese policy but that
doesn't make us criminal; just human.
I'm sure that ! am not alone in my views and I
hope that others will join me in this condemnation
of ASP.
I would like further to express the hope thai
t h e e d i t o r s of A S P w i l l s o o n b e c o m e more
responsible with their public trust.
Respectfully yours.
James Weslman
You're Right, You're Right!
To tlio Editors,
We are writing this letter in response to your
front page picture of Friday, October 17 issue,
caption reading: "Students Deploring the Death
Culture, listening to the names of those murdered
by the government of these United States." It
appears to us that the editors of the ASP were using
the paper as a means of expounding their personal
ideologies. We feel that the idea expressed in the
caption is as absurd as the idea of slating a similarity
b e '. w e e n t h e U.S. colonial g o v e r n m e n t under
President Washington with the Third Reich under
Hitler. It is not the U.S. government that is
murdering our men in arms, but the Communist
guerrillas and North Vietnamese regulnrs"People"
who hold life as a cheap commodity, who would
not stop short of "genocide" to meet their ends.
This issue in the "student's newspaper" is nothing
more than a group of student radicals expressing
their own views and not those of the university as a
whole.
Two concerned AMERICANS,

illogic
To the Editors:
A few remarks and questions to the author of
"Sanctuary" in your October 21st issue.
"Trouble" is an illusory term. On that much we
agree. But, if the University doesn't define trouble
in the context of established laws, then how should
it be defined? How can the University be accused of
saying, "You are 'in trouble' if you a human being
with peculiarly human habits?" That broad
generalization is not logically implied by the
statements: "you are 'in trouble' if you protest"
and "you are 'in trouble' if you smoke marijuana."
There is no general law against being human with
peculiarly human habits, but there is a law against
violent protest and smoking marijuana. The validity
of these laws is a question the University can and
should take a stand on, but the University can not
and should not choose to disregard these laws.
To whom is the remark, the "problem is with the
ridiculously antiquated education that does not aid
us in questioning our own morality or in
determining what our 'troubles' are," addressed?
This remark can't fairly and justifiable be directed
at the University, as was implied.

TMenta), October 28, 1969
by Diane McNamara
staff reporter
In an historic first meeting with
student senators participating as
voting members the University
Senate (Faculty Senate) yesterday
approved the proposal for
Pass-Fail grading in all freshmen
classes immediately and to include
sophomores next year. After
approximately 35 minutes of
discussion the senators approved
adoption by a vote of 51 -31.
The meeting opened with the
introduction of the new student
senators! Dr. Finklestcin,
chairman of the executive
committee reported the results of
a faculty poll concerning the
pass-fail question. The results
were 190 in favor, 149 opposed.
The next report was from Dr.
Aronson, chairman of the
Undergraduate Academic Council
moved the adoption of the
controversial
pass-fail
proposal. Discussion followed in
which most of Ihe same
arguments both for and against
were brought up. Dr. Maurilz
Johnson proposed an amendment

amendment was defeated in a
voice vote.
and committee reports seemed to
favor adoption. He felt that
further discussion would be futile
and time wasting and moved the
question. The motion, which
required a 2/3 majority, carried
by a vote of 48-24.
The pass-fail proposal was then
put up for a vote and approved
5 1-31. The vote by the
undergraduate senators was 10
approving and 11 opposing with
one senator not present for the
vote. Thus the student vote was
not, in any way, crucial to
passage, as many had thought it
would be.

"Royal Hunt" opens

British playwright Peter Shaffer
chose to tell the tale of the demise
of a people in his play, THE
ROYAL HUNT OF THE SUN,
which he subtitles "A Play
Concerning the Conquest of
Peru." The play opens tomorrow
night in the new University
Performing Arts Center.
At the core of this drama,
which depicts the clash of two
cultures in the mid-1530's, is the
historical confrontation of two
indomitable leaders: the Spanish
Conquistador Francisco Pizarro,
played by Peter Hasler, and the
Inca god-king Atahuallpa, played
by Gary Restifo.
The empire of Atahuallpa
possesses an abundance of a metal
after which t h e Spaniards
lust—gold. Pizarro's relationship
with Atahuallpa, his prisoner,
develops from one of man against
god into trust and faith between a
man of truth and power, who
truly may be "god on earth," and
a broken soldier.
ROYAL HUNT OF THE SUN
will be presented on the Main

Helping one another to survive through education
By Andy Bernstein
Brave New World
Stony Brook Tops Danes, 2-1
i
PAGE 5
ALBANY STUDENT PRESS
The Albany State soccer team
hosted the State University at
Stony Brook on Saturday and
again came away still searching for
their first victory.
State fell behind midway
through the first half when the
ball squirted loose from a big
scramble in front of the Dane goal
and was kicked past the stunned
Terry Jordan, State's able
goaltender. Thus Coach Bill
Schieffelin's squad was forced to
play catch up, something which
they have become used to but
have not mastered.
S t o n y Brook u p p e d its
advantage to 2-0 late in the first
half when a Dane defenseman's
miskick was converted into a
score when an alert Long Islander
defenseman put the ball into the
net.
In the third quarter, Albany's
determination from the start of
the second half paid off. Captain
Jim Shear scored, cutting the
margin to 2-1, after a beautiful
display of passing from teammates
Demetrius Michael and Gavin
Louder. This was the way the
score remained, however, with
State's tremendous second half
effort just falling short.
According to Coach Schieffelin,
if he had planned for everything
to go wrong before the season had
started, things couldn't have
h a p p e n e d better. Absolutely
nothing has gone the Danes' way.
Admittedly, a team has to make a
share of its breaks. The Danes
have not, yet by the same right,
they still have not received their
own. They have made simple
mistakes, leading to opposing
team goals but have generally
played good soccer.
Obviously, the team's weakness
is scoring. Thus far, they have
netted only eleven goals for an
average of only 1.25 goals per
game. The defense has been
basically sound and at times
outstanding. It is a shame that
their offensive teammates cannot
score.
Meanwhile, the junior varsity
squad has been creating some
fireworks. After manhandling
Brooklyn by a score of 6-1 last
week, the Baby Danes shut out
Oneonta Saturday by a score of
1-0. Phil Call registered the Danes'
marker.

In the entire world one corporation, one business
dominates the shape of the future, as it is now
calculated and framed. The name of the corporation
is International Business Machines. IBM! This
corporation employs more than a quarter of a
million people and of that number most are college
graduates (none are union members), who are
nursed, groomed, dangled, directed, encouraged,
threatened, converted by a society that requires this
human feed for its blueprints. The stock value of
International Business Machines is more than all the
gold ever collected in Fort Knox. Its activities
reaching into 105 countries and into the minds of
presidents, teachers and churches and parents and
sheriffs, govern much of the world's advanced
technology. This involves space, under the seas, on
the earth, in almost all of the universities and
individual occupations, governments, congresses,
general staffs, banks, industries... and the hopes
they engened in the hearts of man in his quest for
success.
Who of those targeted for this "brave new
world," qho study in the American universities, is
really taught? The neglect of the student, paralleling
the neglect of the society from which he springs, is
the twin failure of the university ... for the
university is really the instrument that expresses the
will of that neglected society to prepare persons to
buttress it and extend it. The restrictive philosophy
of general education with its accumulated formulae
and its rigidly defined curricula simply explains why
higher education had better fulfill its responsibilities
to students, and to society ... and quick!
The world has narrowed, the time is fleeting, yet
the university remains parochial. In acknowledging
that the central fact of modern American life is
education and the central onstitution for defining
the quality of American life is the university, what
can we say to those in ferment when they know too
well that no matter how we worship the ivy and
how we measure the methods, they will be sucked
into the vortex of a programmed society that differs
only in degree from the sweatshops that magnetized
their ancestors in their struggle to survive.
The university is the instrument with which the
young define their own special qualities and their
own special growth. They measure the failures of
their elders, and the achievement, as Ihey prepare to
take their places in their world fractured by
violence, i s o l a t i o n and alienaLion. Their
understanding of what a university should be is so
much more profound than that held by the
faculties, the trustees, the administrators, the pitiful
state legislators and the elusive congressmen.
The upheavals in American campuses are not
effected by the terrorist enemies of the American
nation. In one way they are the incidents in the
contemporary record of our real social, economic
and political revolution. But, fundamentally, they
are manifestations of the emergence of the
university as the one focal institution in our modern
society. The military-industrial state is jealous of its
guardianship over it. An informed youth, aware of
the conditions necessary to sustain human life and
the democratic spirit, is determined to change it. He
knows that in the miasma that is our land...the
indifferences, the criminality, the special privilege,
the dishonesty of high office, the breeding of
ghettos, the poisoned environment...must be dealt
with by those who must inevitably take over that
land...the new generation. The university must,
above all. relate to the survival and happiness of that
birth and survival can coexist with the achievements
of man's sensory apparatus! Abundance, population
and America's future can only be directed with
intelligence and sensitivity by a generation educated
in its own fashion.
Schools must learn away from agression and
acquisition and the deep roots of conflict. Belief
once again, in the human dignity and the values of
the species must be revitalized. Universities must
not be poisoned by the national dictum that says
they must provide minds and flesh to counter the
Soviet space program, Swedish steel manufacture,
Japanese production methods.
Concentration on subject matter, heaped on
appallingly neglected generations has spawned a
banality and aimlessness that subverts the human
purpose. To embrace reason in our new schools
wem must abandon superstition and mindlessness dabbling and strengthen the university with a
relationship among students that will make their
lives worthwhile. The leaders of our land claim
insight as a result of greater experience. That is
spurious because the youth today in the colleges are
qualitatively different from other generations.
History has provide this picture so many times
before, it so easily ignored and betrayed just as
many times .
generation. Their prospects, their enduring, their
power, their minds, must be protected., guided,
trained by the universities...and those universities
must be entrusted to the young while the college
apparatus maintains honorable guardianship over
their humane endeavors.
Studies for Individual Growth
The concern for individual growth must be a
source ingredient in a new kind of school. The idea
of social action, the awareness of the interplay of
society's pulses and the ability to apply the
students' emotions and talents to the plotting of a
better social experience must be integral to any
university's responsibility. The role of personal
experience in its pure and connected forms is
critical to a higher form of education.
Students shall learn what they need to learn.
Curriculum must change from a series of prescribed
courses to a range of resources. Resources such as
aids, community service, books, geographical
involvement, on-site projects, other students.
Organized activities for new kinds of learning
i n c l u d e g r o u p courses, meetings, seminars,
community projects paralleling field work, library
study and conferences with faculty, independent
study in which students wit the assistance of a
faculty member designs and pursues an individual
program, and direct source involvement in learning
patterns.
Studies can be selected from human behaviour,
societies, cultures, world problems, physical
sciences, mathematics, biological sciences, the basic
and profound arts (music, architecture, drama, art,
crative writing, literature), education, psychology of
the society, language studies, the American
community, the ghetto, the military, the university,
the industry, the future.
On campus daily work programs require
all-student participation. Work forms must be
plotted. Entire communities, assisted by visiting
experts, are connected to the plans and the
conferences as broad problems of communication,
survival, and municipal policy are faced.
Policy objectives, aids, blocks, criminality,
projection and competing philosophies in all areas
of national and educational life are explored.
Encouragement of social invention and inculcating
in academic life the desire to advance the knowledge
of self-worth into brave areas of needed change.
Students must reshape the quality of modern life.,
Not for spiralling profits or a new automobile. For
simple decency so man on this earth will not
obliterate himself and his chemistry.
New Values, New World
We here feel the inadequacy of the values so
many adults spawned for us; drives for possession of
things, academic definitions, myth of America's
good intentions. All this breaks down in the search
for a dignity to the life style. It seems papably
absurd to embrace learning conditions and
university functions while the history of its
bankruptcy is a record of catastrophe.
The old values, the old buildings, the old lessons,
the old places, inventions of another time, hold true
no longer in the great excitement of being young
today, and facing the new realities.
Each new generation of students must create its
own forms of learning. The range of possibilities is
enormous. With the dream-like abundances, so
indiginous to our geography and talents higher
education should be available and accessible to all
with the right to reject academic learning in favor of
more fruitful learning experiences if desired.
Choices are possible in the belt that sends young
people into computors and armies and auto and sted
and the myraid of mind furnaces that castrate and
weaken is stopped on route and the value system
that measure all the technocratic domination is
rejected once and for all. The younger generation is
in the process of synthesizing a new wisdom. That is
the real education.
The force shaping the university is that force of
unleashed
technology controlled by giant,
impersonal bureaucracies. Instead of radical talking
about historical inevitability, it is now the economic
planners in the state department who cluck
truculently about the great leveling force of
technological development that will, in the same
time, assimilate all learning, all revolutions and all
cultural diversities into one grand, agressive,
machine-civilization.
Setting aside such rhetoric is the thing to cope
with. Shall universities yet be strangled by the
insatiety of socio-economic voraciousness or do we
believe that we as individuals can be changed... and
thence, society. Tied to the trajectory of traditional
learning-or are dead.
Helping one another to survive through new
belief in education is the task before us.
The main torrent in our national existence must,
inevitably, be education. Goals, however
are
hardly defined. The achievement of joy in life has
always been feared by high places and yearned for
by the brutalized and the denied. Western
c i v i l i z a t i o n , through its manacled officers,
suspicious churches, jealous rulers have eschewed
pleasure and joy as a threat to the goal-disciplined
designers of our culture. Matter, energy and massive
development of human resources in critical to the
s u s t a i n i n g of the national pulse. National
u n h a p p i n e s s has r e s u l t e d , here. National
unhappiness can also flow from the drive to ecstasy,
without goals. The great American script of 1789
opend up the vale of an ecstasy but the thwarting,
the rewriting and the extemporaneous exploitation
has evoked a new language in deceit. 102.4 million
people in our land have right to know just where

SUPREME COURT DECISION ON BUSES
Student Association
Supreme Court
Decision On the Bus Appropriation to Washington D.C.
(BUI CC 6970-24)
Under consideration is the constitutionality of CC 6970-24 challenged in a referral
presented to the Supreme Court of the Student Association of the State University of
New York at Albany, by Bert Devorsetz. The Court now renders its decision.
Re: Devorsetz referral: "Until November of 1967 Student Association had never
funded any group of a partisan political or religious nature. At that time Council enacted
an allocation of funds for the Young Americans for Freedom chapter organized on the
campus. This allocation was rescinded by a further paragraph of bill 6768-73. No religious
organization to my knowledge has evur challenged the aforementioned precedent.
Central Council has acted in direct contradiction of past statute and precedent. The
group involved will be the first six hundred students to buy tickets for the bus. The
march, not just the war, is a partisan political issue since there, in facts, different opinions
are argued by politicians."
The Court will now differentiate between a group and a committee.
CC 6869-14-Central Council Rules 1968-1969, Section VIII Parliamentary Authority,
Part A states "The rules contained in Robert's Rules of Order Revised shall govern
Central Council in ail cases to which they are applicable and in which they are not
inconsistent with the special rules of order of Central Council." Robert's Rules of Order
Revised, Article IX—Committees and Boards, Section 52—Committees, Special and
Majority Opinion
The Constitution, Article I, Central Council,
Section 3: Duties and Powers, part d states: "The
Central Council shall be empowered to provide
effective communication for relating students of the
University Community and with the broader
community as well."
Section VIII—Political Involvement of CC
6667-47 states: 1. "That it shall be the primary
responsibility of the P.S.P. Committee to study and
coordinate involvement in political and social
controversies and questions, which are above and
beyond Position Statements. 3. That it be the
primary responsibility of the P.S.P. Committee to
make recommendations with respect to any such
involvements."
The Court feels precedent had been set in CC
6869-115—Action on State Cut to Education which
supported "a massive letter writing campaign to the
New York State Legislature in order to protest the
proposed cut in State aid to education. . ." and CC
6869-119 which transferred monies for the
implementation of this writing campaign P.S.P.
Committee coordinated. (The American College
Dictionary states on to coordinate: "To combine in
harmonious relation or action.") the efforts of the
student body.
On October 2, 1969 P.S.P. Committee introduced
into Central Council a petition, signed by 2,797
students, petitioning Central Council to assist them
"in financing a fleet of buses to be sent from
Albany to Washington" on November 15, 1969.
The Court rules that this action was an action
coordinating the efforts of the 2797 petitioners. CC
6970-24 was "above and beyond" a Position
Statement (see CC 6667-47 Section Ill-Position
Statements) and P.S.P. Committee was therefore in
its capacity to make recommendations to Central
Council in the form if a bill (CC 6970-24). In light
of the Constitution (Article I, Section 3, part d) and
CC 6667-47 (Section III) the Court rules bill CC
6970-24 to be constitutional by a vote of 3-2-0
(Justices Handelman, Lieberman, and Stephan
concurring, and Justices Healt and Potskowski
dissenting).
Minority Opinion
The Court does not dispute the power of Central
Council to actively relate student interest to the
community at large as well as to the University as
stated in the Constitution, Artice 1, Central Council,
Section .'): Duties and Powers, part d (as
aforementioned). The Court also agrees that CC
6970-24 was above and beyond a Position
Statement (see CC 6667-17 Section HI—Position
Statements) and that P.S.P. Committee has the
power to ". . .study and coordinate involvement in
political and social controversies and questions,
which are above and beyond Position .Statements."
Coordinate is defined by the American College
Dictionary as "To combine into harmonious
relation or action," i.e., to bring together. The
Court contends that Political and Social Positions
Committe in sponsoring bills CC 6869-115 and CC
6869-119 (which have been termed precedent
setting legislation) and CC 6970-21, providing for
the allocation of financial assistance to groups or
individuals expressing a particular interest or cause,
did not act within the limits of CC 6667-47 as
defined in Section VIII.
On March 13, 1969 P.S.P. Committee sponsoro-1
Standing states: "It is usual in deliberative assemblies, to have all preliminary work in the
preparation of matter for their action done by means of committees. The committee may
be either a 'standing committee', appointed for a definite time, as a session or a year; or a
'special (or select) committee', appointed for a special purpose; or a 'committee of the
whole' consisting of the entire assembly."
CC 6869-14 Central Council Rules 1968-1969, Section Ill-Committee Formation A.
Standing Committees, Part 3, states: "The following shall be cotfsidered the Standing
Committees of Central Council: a. Election Commission, b . Finance, c. Solicitations, d.
Student Ambassador, e. Student Tax." CC 6667-47, Political and Social Positions Policy,
states in Section II Committee, part 1, "That there shall be established a Political and
Social Positions Committee, as a standing committee of Central Council (P.S.P.
Committee)."
CC 6768-73 part 1, states: ". . .that Student Association monies shall not be used to
directly finance any group which advocates any specific partisan political viewpoint." and
part II, states: ". . .that the Budget passed for Young Americans for Freedom be
rescinded." The Court feels that the Young Americans for Freedom is a definite political
partisan group which espouses a definite political doctrine as stated in the constitution.
The American College Dictionary states a standing committee is "a permanent
committee, as of legislature, society, etc., intended to consider all matters pertaining to a
designated subject." The Political and Social Positions Committee is not a political
partisan group and therefore is not subject to CC 6768-73. The Court so rules by a vote
of 5-0-0 (Justices Handelman, Healt, Lieverman, Potskowski, and Stephan concurring).
The Court will now consider the constitutionality of bill CC6970-24—the
appropriation to Political and Social Positions Committee.
bill CC 6869-119 which related to a particular
interest or cause—aid to education in New York
State. CC 6869-119 allocated $385.00 to cover
expenses of writing letters to students' parents
asking t h e p a r e n t s t o write their state
representatives in protest of Governor Rockefeller's
requested reduction in aid to education.
On October 2, 1969 P.S.P. Committee introduced
into Central Council bill CC 6970-43. The Student
Association Brief stated that this "...petition of
2797 manes served as the Council's basis for
financial support..." The petition stated: We the
undersigned hereby petition Central Council to
support, for humane and moral purposes, the
anti-war march on Washington on November
15,1969, and, we also petition you to assist in
financing a fleet of buses to be sent from Albany
to Washington on the same date, so that those
whishing to do so may have the opportunity to
denonstrate against this unhumane and immoral
war.
The Counrt maintains that bills CC 6869-115, CC
6869-119group, but are of a supporting nature.
Webster's Third New International
Dictionary
defines support: To uphold by aid, countenance, or
adherence: Actively promote interests or cause of."
By a l l o c a t i n g funds to finance
the
aforementioned letter writing campaign and the
buses to Washington the Court rules that bills CC
6869-115, CC 6869-119, and CC 6970-24 presented
by P.S.P. Committee are beyond the legal
limitations as set forth in Section VIII of the P.S.P.
Committee
Policy S t a t e m e n t and are
unconstitutional. The Court votes 2-3-0 (Justices
Healt and Potskowski concurring, and Justices
Handelman, Lieberman, and Stephan dissenting.)
Re: Devorsetz referral: "Furthermore Council has
acted in breach of its trust with the student body.
Since the student tax collected by the Student
Association is mandatory, not voluntary, the
Council is in fact charged with a greater
responsibility than it was when Student Association
was voluntarily joined. The Board of Trustees noted
this in their recent pronouncements (Court:
seeBoarcl of Trustees Resolution of May 16, 1968 •
.102.1 1)."
On a referendum held on April 28-30, 1965, 24%
of the student body (20% needed for a valid
referendum) voted 787 in favor, 91 against, and 6
abstentions (q.v. ASP May 1, 1965) in favor of the
proposed Student Association Constitution now in
| TUESDAY, OCTOBER 28,1969
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 28,1969
use.) Article I, Section 3, part f states "The Central
Council shall have the power to determine student
tax, to establish general financil policy, to allocate
funds, and to have ultimate power of audit and
control of student finances."
The Board of Turstees relolution 302.14, gave the
Student Association the power to "fix and assess
upon themselves an annual fee." On a referendum
held on April 30-May 2, 1969 1070 people voted
(20% or 979 people needed for the referendum to
be valid) 563 to 507 (q.v. ASP May 6, 1969), in
favor of having mandatory student tax.
Henceforth Central Council has become a duly
elected body based upon majority rule and the
protection of minority rights. Minority rights are
protected by voice of dissent, election of
representatives to Central Council, and by appeal to
the Supreme Court of the Student Association.
Central Council has the power to dlelgate monies
and its misappropriation may be appealed. Student
Association (i.e. Central Council) has a greater
responsibility to all members of the University. Teh
Court is in agreement upon this point by a 5-0-0vote (Justices Handelman, Healt, Lieberman,
Potskowski, and Stephan concurring.)
Action not talk
goal of new group
by Liz Elsesser
Women's Liberation Movement,
a newly
formed
campus
organization 1B working hard to
achieve recognition on campus.
They are in the process of drawing
up a charter, as well as obtaining
literature and organizing publicity
committees.
Female status and awareness
were among the discussion topics
at yesterday's meeting. The reason
why there are so few women in
full time, high university positions
was questioned. Women are often
centered in home life, but this is
not by choice.
This organization feels that
women must act, not just talk. To
facilitate this, Women's Liberation
Movement has decided to sponsor
programs, literature tables, guest
speakers and films. Thought and
action on the part of women is
more important than legislative
process.
Beginning with
campus
problems, the Women's Liberation
Movement hopes to then branch
out to more important aspects of
the "feminine mystique." One felt
that the infirmary set up was
unfair and that women should be
issued birth control pills. It was
mentioned too that hours for
women on other campuses need
to be abolished.
On the national level, women's
status must unquestionably be
raised. The few women who hold
any sort of influential positions
nowadays, are often incompatible
to fellow females as employers
simply because of the competition
involved. The reputations of
women athletes and politicians are
not what they should be only as a
r e s u l t of i g n o r a n c e . The
"unfeminine" connotation seems
to usually appear.
Meetings of the Women's
Liberation Movement are open to
any university women-faculty
and students. Possibly in the
future, when the committee has
b e t t e r established itself, the
meetings will be open to all.
A b o r t i o n laws, birth-control,
alimony, and other related male
vs. female topics will be discussed.
The next meeting will be on
Monday November 3rd, at 3:00
p.m. in the Campus Center

The major portion of President
Kuusisto's weekly conference
Monday dealt with the Pass-No
Grade proposal discussed by
Faculty Senate yesterday. The
president stated that such a
system would enable freshmen
and sophomores to more easily
adapt to college life, but there
would also exist the danger of a
resultant general lowering of
standards on the part of both
faculty and students.

Comment
No Requirements
Why should a Political Science' or English major be forced to take
twehrei credits of math-science? Will the fact that he has fulfilled
univeristy requirements pacify the student who has not had the
opportunity to fulfill his own requirements? We think not.
The intellectually stimulated student is sell-motivated. He will taKe
courses that satisfy his intellectual desire; however, as of now, he must
also take courses that satisfy somebody else's definition of intellectual
desirability. This student learns nothing (maybe a few facts) from
these courses. Sometimes he is so boredithat his personal motivation is
decreased as a result.
With the coming of departmental programs university-side
requirements are no longer necessary. Departments may exempt their
majors from every requirement but the accumulation of 120 credits.
When will this universitylearn that the theory behind the necessity
for education is a theory based on individual self development and
self-help, not forced conformity for the purpose of common
knowledge.
Students forced to take poorly taught, uninteresting and irrelevant
introductory courses will not want to continue education. As a result
they cannot spend time with more mipd-expanding courses. They will
know however, that the purpose of the university is to get that degree,
signifying no personal accomplishment.
Faculty too, should be freed from taking courses which are a
"source of frustration and a waste of lime to themselves, departments
and students."
Students today, it was noted by Dean Morris, are enleiing
universities with "a level of instruction and sophistication not
congruent with the level of frehsman course offerings."
These introductory courses, however, arc made the prerequisit for
more interesting upper level courses.
Exposure to alot of disciplines is important. Forced exposure
defeats its own purpose and does alot more harm than hood. The
student will not become self-educated if external forces continue to
pull his mind away form himself.
Demonstration goodness
To the Editors:
I hope that the recent orderly demonstrations for
peace by the University students of America have
opened our mind's eye to their goodness. Far too
many adults are all too content with a superficial
and shortsighted appraisal of youth. 1 believe that
very many of these students have a much better
grasp of the facts and chronoly of the Vietnam War
than we do as adults. I believe that they more
sharply discern the contradictory statements of our
politicians, as their past statements relate to their
present actions, or lack of actions.
Are the reasons for continuing to permit the daily
loss of lives both civilian and military valid ones? If
there are valid reasons, in what sense are these
reasons valid? Granted the premise, that human lives
everywhere on this earth are precious, let our minds
and consciences come to deal with these questions
with only two objectives. One is truth, the other is
justice. What is the truth? How do we justify the
continued killing? What "will work or will not
work" in the mind's eye of our politicians has
nothing to do with the answers to these questions.
Damn the pragmatic to hell's door! In the name of
the pragmatic we have fiddled and fussed too long!
Too long have we hidden our faces from the fact
that it is possible to know the truth! The hour is
late. We must search our souls. Truth measures us!
Do we know that? Are we failing truth by turning
our backs, by not looking? • our fellowmen will find
it hard to forgive us. Is it possible that our students
have become more concerned with the answers to
these questions than we have as adults? Do they
have more anxiety in their hearts over these events
than we do? I am ashamed to say so but I believe
that it is true. If it is not true, than lor the love of
God let us prove it!
This very week past, the names of our fellowmen
who have lost their lives in this still continuing
tragedy, have been echoed and re-echoed from east
to west on the lips of our students in a personal
tribute, in a tribute to what it means to be a person.
Our dead will bless them God bless them for their
concern, for their insight-a person is sacred to
them! You and I Mt. Citizen had better believe that
they love us. The students have given us signs. God
help us if we no longer believe in signs for while it is
forgiveable to lose one's way - God help us if we
tear up the map.

COMMUNICATIONS
between the Young Democrats and the College
Young Democrats. The College Young Democrats
(CYD) is a college group and a separate organization
from the Young Democrats (YD) which is made up
of non-college people under the age of 35. The YD's
were recently disbanded by the Democratic State
Committee.
Contrary to the information in your article the
CYD's receive no funds from the Democratic Party.
Although we are the officially recognized student
organization of the Democratic State Committee
and the Democratic National Committee, we are
provided only with office space by these groups.
Being the official student group of the
Democratic Party has not prevented the College
Young Democrats from taking positions at variance
with the Democratic Party structure. In 1966, the
College Young Democratic Clubs of America were
expelled from the Democratic National Committee
for the remainder of the Johnson Administration,
because of their strong stand against the Johnson
policies in Vietnam. At its annual convention in
June, the New York State College Young Democrats
refused to endorse the Democratic nominee, Mario
Procacino for Mayor. College Young Democrats, as
a group, have taken positions at great risk in the
past and continue to do so today.
The SUNYA College Young Democrats
appreciate the value of NDC-some of us are
members of NDC, or have worked with NDC. But
we can also see the value of CYD. Since we are the
official student organization of the Democratic
Party, the party leaders come to CYD, not to NDC,
to hear the voice of its student supporters. Indeed,
National Chairman, Sen. Fred Harris, will be
listening to the result of the National Convention of
the College Young Democratic Clubs of America to
be held in Nashville, Tennessee next week.
In short, support of NDC does not necessitate
opposition to CYD. In fact, of one supports NDC, it
is foolhardy not to support CYD, sii e CYD already
has a voice in the Democratic Party

grabbing, and shoving. The joke of lifting the
mealcard face-high and smiling stupidly and saying
"That's realty me" loses its flavor after 200 comics.
Being branded with obscenities can be taken only so
long. Being ignored to the point of refusing to show
mealcards, sneaking in while friends keep me busy,
etc., since it can cost a student his job, also wears
thin.
So the next time you get a "hard time" on the

what your revolting behavior has so deservingly
earned you.

by Judy Novicky
"The key issue involved in the
question of academic freedom is
the proper relationship bclwen
the disciplines and real life
experience." Benjamin Dc Mott,
speaking Wednesday night in the
first of a scries of seminars
sponsored
by the English
D e p a r t m e n t , feels that the
University community is basically
an arlifical environment which
needs to be "turned out to the
i in in c d i a c y of
persuna
experience."
In this way. DeMott explained,
"the lines between intellectual
growth and personal growth
would not be finely drawn."
I n his lecture
entitled
"Universities and Immediate
Experience," DeMott went on to
say that a University environment
in which life's
immediate
experiences are integrated with
the disciplines lends itself to a
flexibility in structure.
The former faculty-student
hierarchy is broken down and an
honest discourse dcvelopes among
faculty
and students. "The
fundamentals of these two forces
come out in the open."
DeMott feels that the "demon
of the credit hour and course
requirement" removes education
from the realm of personal
experiences.
1 He cited the
document
comprised by the Columbia
faculty in the wake of student
u n r e s t last spring as an
unfortunate effect of this barrier
between faculty and students. He
urged
an
attitude
of
' ' o p e n - m i n d c d n es s,''
"exploration," and "possibility"
on the part of faculty members.
" N o faculty
proclamation
should
bless
pedagogical
orthodoxy as the Holy Stone of
academic freedom."
DeMott went on to say that a
faculty which takes this united
stand, as Columbia has done, is
insisting on an absolute barrier
not only between faculty and
students but also between the
d i s c i p l i n e s and
immediate
experience.
Insistence on this barrier "leads
to a lock on the viability of a
University." DeMott feels that a
document of this kind is an
attempt "to keep experincc off
the campus."
Mr. DeMott is a Professor of
English at Amherst College. He
has written two novels, THE
BODY'S CAGE and A MARRIED
VlAN. He has also written three
collections of essays: HELLS &
BENEFITS, YOU DONT SAY,
and his latest
publication,

here and to coordinate activities
with Buffalo State, Harpur and
Stony Brook in order to achieve
state-wide action.
The final order of business for
S.M.C. concerned their student
strike on November 13 th and
14th. There was considerable
dissension on the exact nature of
this strike with the ultimate
result being a motion calling for
Thursday, November 13th to be
reserved for further study and
Friday, November 14th, to entail
Campus action. The motion
carried.
Possibilities of community
a c t i o n such as door-to-door
campaigns, leaflet hand-outs and
S.M.C. collaboration with G.E.
workers were also discussed. Two
committees were formed to
investigate possible activities for
both days.
Dave Mathews, upstate regional
traveler of Rym II of S.D.S. also
addressed the group.
November anti-war activities
and defense recruitment on
campus were two of the topics
discussed at a lengthy meeting
Wednesday evening of the Student
Mobilization Committee.
William O'Kain opened the
meeting by reading a newsletter in
which the official position of
S.M.C. on the Vietnam war was
stated. Basically S.M.C. calls for a
total withdrawal of U.S. troops
from Vietnam now as well as the
immediate termination of U.S.
support for the Saigon regieme. It
was emphasized that this position
is considerably different from the
Young Socialists' position of
"cease-fire now."
Discussion ensued on a recent
ASP article dealing with Defense
Department funded research on
Campus. While the majority
seemed opposed to the presence
of these monies on Campus,
several members of S.M.C. made
the
point
that
Defense
Department funds are not solely
employed for military purposes.
O'Kain then called for a group
of volunteers to probe the exact
nature and amounts of these

Other points mentioned were
that since the tax was made

maintain that there has been no

Petitions will be available on
