Welcome Patriots

Welcome Patriots
Welcome patriots of peace, welcome to the city of protest, the city
of nerves, the capitol streets are opened to you the one day a year you
can get your creepy heads together in large enough numbers so that
when we strike out blindly we'll get at least some of you, you hippy
faggots, you terrorist agitators for peace, you crazy kids.
Hello city of protest, we are here to grab your balls and twist them
so you scream as hard as the Vietnamese whom you are continually
raping. We came to resurrect Christ, the lord of us all, his long hair
was grabbed two years ago and like Sampson, his powers were
stripped in the process of peaceful protest.
Call us crazy? It's been going on for 10,000 years! White man,
white house, white curse-your time really has come, and gone.

Important Notes
The buses for the trip to Washington will be leaving from the
Administration Circle at 9:30 p.m. Friday. No one will be permitted
to board a bus without a waiver and some form of indentification.
Student Association has been forced to take these measures because
of the legal responsibility incurred by this march.
It is strongly recommended that all participants in the march wear
warm clothes. It may be cold and damp in Washington. We also
recommend that you bring extra money in case something should
come up.
All marchers are reminded that it is improbable that any food
stores will be open in Washington. Bring plenty of food and if
possible, beverage.
The proposed schedule of the march is as follows:
9:30-10 p.m.-buses leave Albany
7:00 a.m.-arrive in Washington
9:00 a.m.-opening assembly-Mall west of the Capitol
10:00 a.m.--memorial service
2 - 5 : 0 0 p.m.-rally at Washington Monument
9:14 p.m.-buses leave Washington
A WALL TO WALL CARPET OF HUMANITY thronged Washington last weekend.
In Case Of Riot
In any demonstration, there is always a
possibility of a police riot. Cops are scared of us in
groups, and often provoke violence while dressed as
demonstrators. Take these minimum precautions for
your own safety:
For Women: Wear pants, and don't wear
For Everyone: Wear heavy shoes or boots, no
sandals, don't wear glasses if possible, bring plastic
goggles to protect from gas or mace. Wear a hat or
helmet, and a heavy sweater and coat. Bring a
handkerchief to cover your nose and mouth as
protection against tear gas. Put vaseline on your face
for p r o t e c t i o n against mace, removing it
immediately after you've been hit.
Write the number of a lawyer and medic on your
clothes or skin; because papers and wallets will be
confiscated in the event of arrest. The numbers will
be given to you on the bus.
Neuer Carry Drugs in a Demonstration.
In the bus, if drugs are found on the seat or floor,
everyone else gets busted with you. Never carry an
address book, pen-knife, or nail file. You can be
charged for possession of dangerous weapons for the
latter two.
Afoue in a gioup of 4-6 at all times.
Self-defense: The N.Y. Times, or any other thick,
liberal newspaper is good for protection against
When the police throw tear gas canisters into the
crowd, throw it off "somewhere into the blue."
When you're demonstrating, never take stuff like
spray paint, joints, or paper bags from strangers.
Cops often mingle with and incite crowds, and can
"plant" these aforementioned articles on you, and
then haul you off to jail.
Stay with the main crowd.
October 31.
It is not the obscure reasoning or the awkward
prose which I object to; I have come to expect this
in ASP editorials. But by this particular editorial
you have apparently abandoned all pretense to
objective, impartial reporting in your newspaper; as
you say, "We cannot, as a result, reveal to you, our
readers, anything but our own personal views.
Virtually all news in this newspaper is as a result of
that philosophy... We warn all, however, that such
obj edification is impossible and, we feel,
There are, of course, philosophical arguments
supporting the impossibility of "objuctification" of
the recounting of any human experience. But it is
possible in practical terms to approach accuracy;
and an open-minded, conscientious reporter labors
to do just that. He knows that his primary
responsibility thus will try to describe fairly events
and persons and ideas he may dislike and disapprove
of, leaving it to the reader to form an opinion.
Opinion is proper and necessary in a newspaper -in
the columns and the editorials. But many of the
"news articles" in the ASP arc already little more
than poorly- disguised polemics, especially when
they deal with "student power" or with the war in
South Vietnam. The editorial of October 31 in fact
seems to be merely a belated statement of policy.
The editors of the ASP have thereby weakened
any position they may take in their editorial
columns. They say, by "impossible" reportage of a
complex reality. 1 believe they insult the intelligence
and good judgment of their readers. I believe that
people have a right to receive objective presentation
of news rather than just prejudiced personal
opinion. There is great danger when a newspaper
says blatantly, "We have little interest in any 'public
trust' because our private one is our main concern."
1 hope that thoughtful students and faculty
members are disturbed and arounsed by such ;l
statement. And I personally believe that the causes
which the editors profess to support deserve far
better than what the Albany Student Press is
coming to be.

The argument over the manner

portion of the Student Activity

Washington buses
in quest of peace
by Ira Wolfman
Initially, the camera moves into the Executive Offices of the White
House, where President Richard M. Nixon is spending a 'routine' day,
complete with conferences and a football game. We then see, as the
camera pans to a calendar, that today is Saturday, November 15,
1969, the date of the planned massive mobilization in Washington- a
protest of Nixon's policies in Vietnam.
Next, an aerial shot reveals over 50,000 people marching in orderly
rows of five, strolling down Pennsylvania Avenue, carrying signs and
chanting anti-war slogans. The cry is heard above the crowd, "What do
we want? Peace. When do we want it?
The narrator opens: "November 15. The date had become
synonymous with the anti-war movement. Planned originally by the
New Mobilization committee, a conglomeration of radicals, pacifists,
and old and new leftists, the march also finally enjoyed the support of
the "moderate" Moratorium committee, led by Sam Brown, a former
McCarthy aide."
In the meantime, the camera has panned over the crowd assembling
for the march. The distinct groups are easily discernible; most visible,
the Weatherman faction of SDS and other extreme radical groups are
waving NLF Flags and chanting their Ho Chi Minh cry. Active GI's
and active draft resisters are found at the very front of the march.
Campus groups and campus age people predominate, yet one notes a
sprinkling of older faces in the crowd '-among them, war veterans from
previous conflicts.
The narrator again speaks: 'The march did not begin the anti- war
activity in Washington that week. There had been a whirlwind of
activity going on since Thursday, much of it subdued, one incident
marred with violence and tear gas.
The camera again moves. This time, it is early morning, the sky is
clear and the weather crisp and cold... very cold. Huge crowds are
converging on the Washington Monument mall.
Narrator's voice: "Saturday morning, the majority of the buses
rolled in. The students unloaded, and moved towards the mall.
Prior to the march, Senator Eugene McCarthy addressed the crowd.
He received a five minute ovation following his short speech.
The marchers, who represented only a small percentage of those
present, proceeded down Pennsylvania Avenue until 12:30, when the
march permit expired. At 1:00 p.m. or so, the rally began at the
Camera shot from the speaker's podium. The number of people is

the crowd is undeniably huge.lt seems to keep coining-more and
more bodies-with nearly no end in sight. Impressive. Amazingly well
behaved and orderly. Little pushing, few seem to hurry.
Narrator: "Rev. William Sloan Coffin opened the rally with a short
prayer. Benjamin Spock welcomed the throng; he called the thousands
'all my children!"
Speakers ranged from moderate, Establishment men to radicals and
folk singers with a more unconventional approach.
The crowd reacted to speakers in a predictable .fashion. Those
speakers who were monotonous or who failed to feed the crowd the
rhetoric of ridicule and emotion they craved, were, for the most part,
ignored. Speakers such as George Wald and both Senators McGovern
and Goodell were among those who failed to arouse the audience.
Howard Samuels not only failed to arouse the audience, but even
managed to create some hostility by proudly proclaiming himself a
'businessman' and accenting the positive role he felt business-like

student senators.
Library Council, under the
c h a i r m a n s h i p of Morrison
Haviland, submitted its report
concerning the allocation of

regulations and the proposed
revision of the fine schedule. The
new schedule reads as follows:

books, a fine of $.50 per day for

after the first week will be

high school in which several
University students were involved.
Immediately after reading the
bill, discussion ensued and Dr.
Kuusisto introduced Dr. Harry
Hamilton, head of Albany's
NAACP and Director of the EOP
Program at the University, to
answer any questions and to
express his own v'ews on the bill.
Dr. Hamilton first stated the
possiblity of the bill being invalid
since, to his knowledge, only
parties directly involved in the
incident may ask for a Human
Rights Commission investigation.
He then went on to assert the
that such an
investigation will take place
n u m e r o u s lawsuits will be
instituted by the parties involved.
A full report on the incident is
now being formulated, according
to Dr. Hamilton, and will be
released hopefully in the near
future. He stressed the fact,
however, thai the University
whould not remain in an ivory
tower but should lake a stand on
the issues involved in Iheincident.
Villano then withdrew his bill,
and stated his desire lo formulate
another bill
to express the
sentiments of the University
Senators on the issue, and present
it at the next meeting.

Kuusisto attended a conference.
The request to build the straw

Thome for the construction of
the village on the Campus Center
mall and the eventual destruction
of the village by burning.
This request was changed to
building the village on the
Academic Podium; the huts would
not be burned. Dr. Thome then
mentioned receiving numerous

the village, including threats to
burn it.
He also described receiving

who, claiming to represent the
" v i l l a g e " g r o u p , requested
permission to move the huts to
the Academic Circle. This request
was denied on the grounds that
the location of the huts on the
"front door" of the university
would create antagonism.
O ' K a i n ' s p o s i t i o n as a
r e p r e s e n t a t i v e was refuted
afterwards by Don Carrier who
asserted that O'Kain was not
reflecting the views of the group.
The group, however, was not
entirely in favor of the removal
of their huts to the Campus
Centermall, even in the face of an
arson attempt on their "village."
The huts were taken to the mall
by university personnel on
Wednesday when members of the
"village" group did not appear to
remove the huts.
An effort by this committee to
return the huts to the Podium, in
violation of the agreement, on
that Thursday brought another
meeting with Dr. Thorne in which
it was finally determined that the
huts would be disposed of at 4:30
p.m. of the same day.
McCarthy fears military machine

"If there is not a significant and
immediate change in structure and

political system, then this nation
will ultimately find itself entirely

The Albany State varsity
wrestling team opens their 1969
season on December 6 as the host
contingent for the Albany
Q u a d r a n g u l a r Meet. The
opposition in attendence will be
Union, Rochester and Williams.
The junior varsity team will not
begin their season. This is mainly
because there is no j.v. squad.
Apparently, not enough wrestlers
went out for the team to fill the
lineup. According to Coach Joe
Garcia, "We have one of the finest
wrestling rooms in the country,
fine conditioning facilities and
play a top-flight schedule and it's
a shame that we can't attract
enough wrestlers."
Because of this lack of interest,
the team lacks depth in several
weight classes. This creates
problems in that there is no
competition for the respective
starting berths, hence, the
wrestlers would tend to progress
at a slower rate.
The 118 lb. weight class is
completely open. Wrestling at 126
pounds are Mark Zilkowski and
Paul Kula. At 134 pounds is Jeff
Albrecht while lettermen Pete
Ranalli and Kevin Roach weigh in
at 142 lbs. Occupying the 150
pound class are honorary captain
George Hawrylenak and Alex
Domkoski. At 158,167 and 177
lbs. are Bobby Kind, Bob Clayton
and Jim Renton, respectively.
Mike M u e l l a r , who was
heavyweight champ on last year's
AMIA tournament, is a candidate
for the 190 lb. slot as is Tim
Coon. The heavyweight class is
filled by Curt Witton.
Obviously, there is not
sufficient competition in the
weight classes. Only by the
wrestlers fighting to start in the
meets will the team improve.
Coach Garcia says it is not too
late to come out for the sport.

Love your mother?

Human emotions, the War in Viet Nam, and the movement
towards ending the war...
Washington D.C. was the biggest love-in ever held in

warm, and constantly smiled at you; it was the spirit of
Christmas. My body was cold but my heart was warm. All
the children were there. All the children who are unsure of
their love for mother America. Some of the children are not
unsure-some love mother very much and others, very
frustrated, are constantly expressing their hate. In case you
didn't know, the love children were wearing helmets and
carrying guns.
Washington is a magnificent city with its huge edifices
standing so proud and strong. Heavy glass, tall gates and
deep underground, all of which houses those of the children
who wish to be housed. Many of the children swoon to

The hateful children are spoiled. They broke: windows
and splatter paint on mother's physical anatomy. They are
so spoiled that they are willing to put their brothers, their

They came from fifty states propelled by an urge to end the
tragedy of killing and burning villages and "accidentally" maiming
peasants and perverting the world. They came with thousands of
ideologies and thousands of different expectations and a rather
tenuous hope-that their being there would somehow put a stop to a
miserable war.
Tragedy should be a lesson, not a way of life.

7-8 smash the state" (In reference to the Chicago 8
conspiracy trial.)
Half <vay through the second circuit of the Justice
Dept., on the Pennsylvania Avenue side of the
building, came the first dark smell of ensuing
trouble. The head of the phalanx broke into a
deadly run and for the first time during the
week-end the moratorium marshalls, who had held a
splendid liaison of control with Washington police,
now lost their grip. The marchers came to an abrupt
halt before the portals of the Justice Dept. on
Constitution Avenue and began a quasi-storming of
the structure. Things at this point had not gone too
far but the m .rrshalls had sounded the alarums and
the air was electric with foreboding. Some of us
were wishing with Falstaff: "I wish 'twere bedtime,
Hal, and all well."
Meanwhile the reporter had gotten himself down
to the left end of the building near the entrance to
the Attorney General's office. Suddenly, incredibly,
unspeakably, five male students materialized around
the flagpole near the portal and the American flag
was L :i its way down to provocation Number One.
By some grotesque prestidigitation, a VC flag was
produced and now the Flagpole-Five got into a
muffle amongst themselves over whether or not the
VC flag would indeed by flown. (All the while, CBS
news is filming the incident, the three cameramen
goggle-eyed anxious to get the whole sequence.) It
was. Behind him now, the reporter heard someone
mutter ominously "Oh my God, No." Now a dozen
D.C. police came flocking to the area and the
Flagpole-Five quickly dispersed. The police
retrieved the Stars and Stripes and restored it to its
former position. Two demonstrators stepped
forward and hurled a rock and a bottle, breaking
one window, yet the police did nothing in
retaliation; but the gossamers of peaceful
demonstration were now broken.

M-Saturday was a day of spiritual celibacy in
which one leaned back to enjoy (skeptically) the
animal warmth of the lava-crowd, which, in its
mood, was much akin to Falstaff in jolly-good
humor at Eastcheap. The marchers were a motley
crew-some walked with crutches, some with casts,
some marched with crosses, many with signs:
"Librarians for Peace," "Veterans For Peace,"
"Delaware Snobs for Peace," et. al. One particularly

"No, you fuck me" replied the miss with a
malevolent titter. Fortunately the reporter was still
feeling too insipid from the bourbon to be
thoroughly insulted. All in a day's work.
Anyway, back to the panorama of signs on the
mall and one gets the feeling very quickly that

returned in crimson fashion. Now the crowd of 50O0 undulated
heavily like a great worm, then swept and broke towards 7th Avenue.
In an instant all had become uproar. The last of reality one saw
before being swept off into the smoking moiling madness were two
gTeat red stains of the Justice Department walls and a sign that read,
Out into the purple chaos of the gathering dusk, tear ga ent the
Wash'-non wind again and again, an American flag was pulled down
from the right-hand flagpole of the Justice Dept., the 20-foot long
gavel constructed by Chicago-8 protesters was in raving flames in the
middle of 7th Avenue amid the acrid, bilious mauve-cerise smoke of
the tear gas, two trees were on fire in the park across the street from
the National Archives, somewhere a mad discordant not had been
struck as if in some Stravinskian limbo, marshalls were shouting
"Walk, people, Walk" us the throng turned its head like Scylla and
rent a gash in itself to relieve the awful suffocation of the tear gas,
there were more shouts of "don't rub your eyes," "walk, people,
walk, please don't run," "I can't breathe, I can't breathe," "someone
pl-ase help me, I'm dying," people going all to pieces in a mad exodus
without destination, choking, coughing, screaming, sneezing,
vomiting, fainting dead away, falling down, getting up, falling down
again, running stupidly, absentmindedly, blindly into immovable
objects (like the Justice Dept. building), men yelling "medic, medic!"
and "Oh my God," other men picking up tear gas bombs and hurling
them back into the police cordons, then hurling cherry bomb:,, sirens
going, bullhorns bellowing, sounds of explosions, people leaving their
shoes behind in the November-dry-brown-toasted grass, dropping their
signs and placards and flags, running they knew not where, gasping,
heaving, wretching uncontrollably, begging for water and air in this
King Lear of Tear Gas.
Amid all this bumbolt and yellow stink of confrontation one
realized starkly why onecalll Tricky Die Oedipus Nixon. The swirling
tear gas seemed to chant the opening lines in James Joyce's A Portrait

Danny Kalb's new Blues Project
is pulled out of the depths of
obscurity and into the category of
professionalism only by his
ability, and his ability alone. As a
blues group, and this was their
announced aim at the concert,
they fall short vocally and in the
way of presenting something new.
As a rock group they lacked the
decent vocals and intensity to
really qualify as good. And, as a
progressive jazz band, or at least a
group who showed heavy modern
jazz influence, they weren't able
to mesh together, successfully,
these two strands of music,

this hysteria and recorded before

nation-wide tours before being

Airplane put on a great concert.
But it was more than that. It was
a lesson for many people, a lesson
in how a great musical group
should sound. And a lesson I hope
most people have learned.
(YELLOW) was first ready for
release, no one realized that it was
going to be such a huge financial
success. Its producers figured that
they had made a typical
low-budget Swedish sex thriller
and expected to realize a
moderate amount on its American
The only untypical thing about
CURIOUS was the fact that for
the first time male and female
genitals would be viewed in
close-up in a commcrical film.
.This was viewed as a selling factor
but no one imagined that such
"photogenic" object would create
such a fervor. After all, the
Catholic Legion of Decency was
now dead ard films with far less
story and much more flesh were
being flashed across American
screens all the time.
Yet, strange as it may seem
CURIOUS offended some people,
notably a couple of "matronly"
judges in Boston. The old tag
"Banned in Boston" was
revitalized and suddenly everyone
wanted to see it (which just goes
to show that the old axiom "bad
publicity is better than none" and
in the case of films 1 might add
better than good is true). In the
meantime, the film's lawyers
swung in to action and eventually
won an appeal in the Supreme
^ourt. The guardians of American
lustice had decided that this film
vas a meritus work of Art.
Suddenly with the film now
widely available it became a
tremendous box-office success.
Instead of playing third-rate
theaters, it was now being
"roadshowed" in all the
fashionable moviehouses. People
from all walks of life, from Jackie
Onassis to bowery bums, were
attending it. Even 1, cynic that I
am, was sucked in.
The trouble with I AM
CURIOUS (YELLOW) other than
being bad is that it makes more
than a pretense to having a story.
If one takes the time to weed it
out (although I don't know why
one should want to) he would
come up with a conglomeration
about an aging filmmaker who
casts his young mistress opposite a
handsome young Swede actor.
The results are very predictable
and of course it was a stupid thing
for him to do.
To make it still more confusing
the girl is a fanatical Socialist. She
is forever running around with a
microphone trying to get people
to say how awful the class system
is in Sweden. (Of course these
interview scenes are shot with a
hand-held camera in a crowded
subway to give the aura of
As a matter of fact the first half
of the film (again I use the word
loosely) is devoted to this kind of
theatrics without the slightest
hint at flesh. (Already the
audience is growing restless,
suspecting that they have been
taken In). Eventually the fleshy
sequences come (no pun
intended), pubic hairs and all, but
when the girl first disrobes one
wishes she hadn't. (U-G-L-Y!!!!).
Of course now the audience is
quite uneasy, but it has to get
better. It doesn't. The sex scenes
we've all been waiting for come
and go; the handsome Swede
never has an erection but he balls
her first time, every time, from
every conceivable position, and
everyone is really terribly bored
After seeing CURIOUS
(YELLOW), a good case can be
made for censorship, not because
the sex scenes are distasteful,
which they are, but simply
because it offers nothing to the
worlds of art or entertainment
and is, in a manner of speaking, an
out and out fraud.

University Concert Band
gives performance tonight
by Iris Sobel
"When I first came here six
years ago the band had only thirty
players. At that time we had to
take anyone who could play. Most
of the players were just beginners.
Only four or five really played
well. We had practically no
instruments and rehearsals were
only once a week.
Then three years ago we were
what I would consider a good high
school band. We began to be more
selective in choosing our
members. During the next couple
of years competition became
greater and greater. Today we not
only have 75 of the best players
on campus, and the best
instruments, but our band has
become one of the best 'college'
Thus spoke William Hudson,
who is the teacher, musician,
conductor, and man responsible
for the progress of the band in the
past six years.
Rehearsals take place twice a
week and are mandatory. 'There
is no such thing as a cut. Time jusl
does not permit it."
It takes about two and a half
months for the band to prepare
for a performance. Pieces
chosen with the players in mind.
"I hope that each performance
will be a learning experience,"
says Mr. Hudson. 'The piece
should improve the performance
of the students. It should present
them with a challenge and should
be of a higher quality than those
pieces played in high school
bands. 1 try to stay away from
transcriptions as much as possible
and center on contemporary
music written expressly for
The types of pieces that Mr.
Hudson considers appropriate for
a college band can be heard in the
band's performance Friday night,
November 2 1. At that
performance the band will play
four pieces written for band:
"Festivo" by Vaclav Nelhybel,
"Chester Overture for Band" by
William Schuman, "Festive
Overture-Opus 96" by Dimetri
Schostak ovi tch and "La
Compars" by Lecuona. The
University Percussion Ensemble
under the direction of Thomas
Brown will also perform. The
concert will take place in the Main
Theatre of the Performing Arts
The band usually gives three <
four concerts a year. Soloists from
the music faculty and from the
outside community often appear
with the band in concert. The
band also takes part in many
other school activities such as
Freshman Convocation, Alumni
Day, and Graduation Day. Last
year it performed at the
Convocation of the Arts upon the
opening of the new Performing
Arts Center. It also performed at
the school dedication.
What does the future hold for
the University Concert Band? Mr.
Hudson hopes to take the band on
tours to various cities. The band
got a wonderful reception when it
performed at Expo '67. He would
like to see it do more things of
that type. He also hopes to form a
second band next year, "for those
players who are not quite good
enough for the first band."
Mr. Hudson is proud of the
progress the University Concert
Band has made in the past six
years. This progress has depended
not only upon his leadership but
upon the students themselves.
Together they have made the
band one of the finest college
bands existing today.

Though Thursday night's
beginning lacked substance, it
progressed into a stimulating and
creative performance. For the first
time, the American String Trio
harmonized 'Tarok" together
after many individual rehearsals.
The impression of the three

followed. I was transported
suddenly lo a carnival, empty and
isolated, facing the foreboding icy
winds alone.

Finest Hour," had a sole flutist
accompanying tapes, films, and
slides. It was a perverse, gory,
display of a woman taking a G.I.
Joe doll to bed amid comments
on the Vietnam War by our
Another selection, "TIC"
found eight musicians and a

unrelated sequences - from
Batman to an orange being peeled.
The indecisive audience was
unsure of their reactions to the
events on stage. Some were
laughing, some were crying.
Others just sat there stunned.
Contemporary music by nature
is a sensitive medium in which lo
express one's inner emotions of
fear, disgust, love and ecstasy. It is

One aspect of the new music lo
come is the reduction of
importance of the note, or the
fixed pitch, and the concentration
on sound as an element in itself.
This new aesthetic has been
largely the result of the new
electronic instruments, one of
which was John Eaton's Synket,
His concert on this remarkable
instrument on November 11
showed the many microlonal and
pure sound possibilities of the
Along with the trend to
concentrale on sound per se is the
increasing tendency loward the
inclusion of other media than
sound in music. The Sonic Arts
Group, which appeared on
Wednesday night, gave some
extremely interesting examples of
this, among which were Robert
Ashley's entertaining "Orange
Desert" for two girls and
electronics, and Alvin Lucier's
"The Only Talking Machine of its
Kind in the World." On the level
of pieces thai dealt with sounds,
Gordon Momma's "Hornpipe"

"Runthrough" stood as lovely
examples of the performed music.
Thursday night's concert was a
salute lo tradition, wilh most of
the pieces playing involving
various phases of the older ideas
that dwell on working wilh
pilches as one of the more
important parameters of the
composition. Among the more
notable pieces in this program
were the Lawrence Moss
"Omaggio" for two pianos, and
the very lyric and melodic
Schocnbcrg "Siring Trio."
Regrettably, I found the Babbitt
"Vision and Prayer," supposedly
one of the classics of serial
writing, boring, dull and pointless.

thai soprano Janel Steele gave an
absolutely gorgeous performance
on this night, as she did on Friday

Saturday night's performance
by the Creative Associates of

all styles shown in the festival.

performance was a piece by l.ukas
Foss called "Paradigm." and a
very light, whimsical piece of

called "Avalanche."

compositions which involved what

future, namely the addition of a

procedures should play in the running of government. Whether or not
he was right was inconsequential; the crowd did not want to hear this.
Arlo Guthrie delighted the crowd, both by refusing to make a
speech, and by singing instead. His one barbed remark brought forth
spirited applause-'There's no need for any more speeches, for any
more points to be made. The only point was already made by the U.S.
government when they showed us the guns and troops they imported
here to protect them from ut.
-Dave Dellinger got his share of applause and attention, even when
calling for the group to join himself, "Jerry Rubin and Abbie
Hoffman in a march to protest the trial of the Chicago 8, at 5 p.m. at
the Justice Department."
An anti-war G.I., editor of an underground military newspaper,
roused the passions of the crowd with a supepemotional plea. He
went so far as to assert that if Richard Nixon did not bring the troops
home soon, "they will come home themselves!" He received a
prolonged round of applause.
Dick Gregory established great rapport with the crowd through his
running monologue on Spiro Agnew-who was the brunt of many
jokes this afternoon.
Sprinkled throughout the program of speakers were many folk
singers like Peter, Paul and Mary, Pete Seeger, Richie Havens, Tom
Paxton, and John Hartford. One of the more emotional and successful
songs was the simple rendition of 'Give Peace a Chance' by Seeger and
the entire crowd.
By 3 p.m., however, after 2 hours of rallying, the crowd was
becoming restless and even more so, exceedingly cold.
Many began leaving for home, and others, who had busses to wait
for, left in search of warmth and shelter.
Radical activity was confined to cheers and waving of flags during
this time, but plans were being made for demonstrations at the Labor
Department supporting the G.E. strikers, and at 5 p.m. at the Justice
Department, in protest of the trial of the Chicago 8.
At 5 p.m. the major rally was nearing its end. Down the street,
however, the rally at the Justice Department had become more than
another rally.
Few demonstrators were actually taking part in the rally; most were
merely observing. They together numbered about 5,000. The radicals
got to the building and after some confusion, rocks were thrown,
windows smashed, and a Vict Cong flag raised in place of a U.S. flag.
The police moved in, using tear gas as their major weapon. Arrests
were made, and the tear gas continued to float about town.
Buses scheduled to leave from areas that had been gassed were
forced to change their positions, and a great deal of confusion took
place the next few hours as students searched frantically for their
All this while, the camera has been panning around town-from the
rally to the Justice Department, lo the inner city and business district.
As the last students board their buses, the camera again pans
around D.C. The monument grounds are now near empty; clouds of
tear gas can be seen all over.
The camera picks up Herb Klein, Nixon's secretary, being
questioned. "What was the Administration's reaction to the
demonstration today?" and Klein's answer, "This is just one more
example of the right of Americans to dissent."
The camera pans away—the buses pull out, the students go home,
Washington returns to normal, classes go on—and so does the war.

Editorial Applications
The current editors of the ASP are opening applications for the
position of editor-in-chief to all upper division students at the
University (only juniors, seniors and graduate students may apply).
Applications should be submitted, c/o the ASP editors, to the Campus
Center Information Desk. They should include the nature of previous
experience with any publication, reasons for interest in the position,
ideas for improvement of the ASP. Applicants will be notified for
interviews. No applications will be accepted after November 26.
To the Editors:
In light of recent events effecting the Albany
Black Community we would like to state, clearly
and succinctly our role as faculty members on the
Department of Afro-American Studies.
First, being Black educators, we are inextricably
tied and committed to finding solutions for any and
all problems affecting Black communities. This
intent is clearly stated in the "purpose" section of
our departmental brochure...we strive to provide "a
definitive study of urban affairs," and attempt to
gear "courses to help meet the specific needs and
problems of our urban communities."
Given this premise it is logical that our combined
talents have been and will always be available for
u. tilization by concerned members of any Black
community on any problem affecting the lives and
destinies of our people.
We recognize that along this road there has been
and will be various so-called "political" obstacles
placed in the way of committed and intelligent
problem-solving attempts.
We will in no way be deterred by either overt or
covert measures of repression. Rather, we stand
united and determined to combat all forms of racial
oppression whether they be in Albany or wherever
Black people are victimized.

Stringer vs. ASP
To the Editors:
Re: the article in the November 14th ASP.
"Knight vs. Stringer." I should like to clarify what
seems to have been a gross misconception regarding
my position.
First of all, if it was by YOUR standards that I
was "on the defensive," I must thank you, for I
must then conclude that my attack was effective. If,
however, one is "on the defensive" by answering the
questions of the audience, then I must admit that
you are right, and further, that I sort of expected
that kind of interpretation from the AS1\ I did not
view it that way.
Secondly, if you had chosen to listen, you would
have heard me repeatedly disclaim andy

me during the rebuttal, "We're not going to type

do still refuse to accept it, though.
Thirdly, I'm sure the ASP would like to think
that I used it as a justification for my comments,
but this is simply not the case. Much as I hate to
deflate your collective cue, my comments were NOT
in reaction to your (I emphasize YOUR) newspaper.
It WAS in reaction to those who refuse to reality, or
who, posturing as "concerned liberals" or "militant
pacifists" seek to destroy everything this country
stands for just as surejv as any avowed communist,
revolutionary, or (I'm sorry I can't take credit for
this term) "neo-Che Guevara-ites."

To the Editors,
Once again the students have been screwed by the
faculty-administration axis.
Last monday, another session of the faculty
follies was acted out. The first momentous issue
before the group was the raising of library fines for
students. After lengthy debate (ISminutcs), these
new rates were approved: from 2 to 50 cents a day,
and $1.00 an hour for reserved hooks. Will this
prevent the tardiness of the return of books, or will
it make stealing of material more profitable? The
head of the library council side-steped these
questions, between yawns.
The vote was 41 for, 22 against. Where were your
thirty-three senators; how did they vote, Mr.
Number two for the afternoon was a bill to
change the regulations of the faculty's tenure,
salaries and titles. Big deal. Some more dead-wood is
all we need on our faculty, right? After 25 minutes
of heated debate that nearly reached the point of
complete boredom, the motion was tabled for
further inaction.
I lie meeting, many of the
non-student Senators, (those that bothered coming),
showed complete apathy towards their jobs. The
recurring pattern is one in which the faculty will
pass any bill that comes out of a committee, and kill
any bill brought up directly on the floor. Most
studnct senators wish to study the bills affecting our
constituents, but few members of the governing
bloc will grant us the time. The obvious answer is to
get them out of the Senate COMPLETELY.
Proportional representation is needed for an
effective University government.
Your Senators need your help, in this and other
issues. Contact some of us, let us work for you.
Lucky day!

To the Editors,
Friday, November 7, was an extremely lucky day
for some student at this University-he found over
$100 just lying around in the gym. Where was this
money lying-in students' wallets, in University
It is natural to ask why these lockers weren't
locked- these students are asking the same
question. It seems the University is unable to
provide locks for all students-not surprising since
there are a limited number of locks for almost an
unlimited number of students.
Now we aren't asking for 10,000 locks nor are we
asking for constant security police protection, but
we do feel that the University has some
responsibility towards its student body!
We again ask where our mandatory student tax
money is going-is it towards improving the gym?
Certainly this is pointless when they'll be no
students there!

You can join PYE.
PYE (Preserve Your Environment) is a new organization on campus
whose goal is to unite people in the fight to save the world from the
rape of humanity. Professor John Scott, one of the organizers of the
group, stated that the aim of PYE was lo "make people aware of
environmental problems and lake action." He stressed the point that

Il is to be action such as that initialed by the originators of the
organization. They were a group of high school girls in Connecticut
who wauled lo save the marshes on the south shore, which were being

community and invited legislators to come and visit the area. Their
efforts met with success a law was passed and the marshes were saved.
