The University's interest in environment sparked the first Presidential press conference of the
second semester. President Kuusisto answered several questions
dealing with the University's
actual activity in handling its own
environmental problems.
Students deplored the emission
of the disgusting exhaust fumes
from United Traction Buses used
in transporting University students. Most people seemed to feel
that the University should act as a

The following revisions were worked out by a Task Force during the
IQB8B9 academic year which convened to consider the SUNYA
S e m l c CaTeTdar in light of the New Patterns in Undergraduate
« £ ton. V a X Z appropriate Councils of the SUNYA Senate considered the recommendation and urged the Senate itself to approve it.
The Senate requested the administration to implement this new calendar "if feasible" and received a report at its December 15 meeting
that indeed such an implementation was feasible
The "intersession" from about December 24 to the beginning of the
third week in January is to be considered as any other university
recess It merely puts together the present Christmas recess and
intersession. Ordinarily the dormitories will close during the period
and other student and academic services will function at the same
level as they do during any recess. In general, faculty will not be
expected to be present on campus any differently than as at present
during a recess. Exceptions to the general policy can be made by
Deans for sound educational reasons, expecially in the case of schools
such as Social Welfare and Education.
Educational programs may be scheduled during the intersession
contingent upon the availability of residential quarters food services,
etc. It is understood that these will create additional costs, and
resources would have to be found if such facilities are needed. Faculty
cannot be paid for instruction during the intersession, since this would
involve double compensation.
Although the above considerations may limit what can be done
during the intersession, members of this academic community are
encouraged to devise imaginative and innovated ways to enhance the
educational program of this university by utilizing intersession.

Central Council philosophy
establishes budget priorities
by Ken Stokem
Last Thursday's Central Council meeting saw the
introduction of a unique concept in budgeting
Student Association monies. Vic Looper introduced
the bill, entitled "Budget Philosophy for 1970-71,"
that sets down new priorities for the use of Student
Tax money.
The proposal stales that: "...the overriding philosophy will be to return as much of the $26.75 to as
many siudenls as possible." The hill emphasizes
increased spending in the area of spectator events
and participation events. The six page proposal goes
into detail as to how this could be done,
A $15,000 Budget was passed for the 1970
Homecoming Concert. It was passed this early to
provide sufficient time and money for the concert
to be booked for in advance.
At the same meeting, Council also spoke about
priorities, communication, and enlivening the
school. Some people feared that the Albany Slate
was becoming a suitcase school and statements such
as, "I don't think that 1 can find 20 people who like
Albany Stale, who go he"e ," were common.
Suggestions were made to activate the school by
doing such things as redecorating the Rathskeller,
having a happening there, having dancing in the
Rathskeller or in a special room, and having ;i mueic
room in the Campus Center.
Looper projected the cost of the program to he

Common Sense
by Perry Silverman
Passing though the campus center several days ago
we happened upon a group of friends sipping coffee
and arguing earnestly ahout the ASP.
'That paper's become nothing but a political rag."
said Ken. "Where's objectivity gone to anyway?
You pick up the ASP and get eight pages of editorial
A short stocky girl named Linda adorned with
long black hair picked up: "Yes, yes that's right:
and have you seen those SPELLING errors. Why
Mr.... my English teacher uses it in class to show
what you SHOULDN'T do when writing!"
Another girl, Marsha, bit down a little less hard:
"Alright, the paper has its flaws, but let's not go
overboard. I mean,'we could have the opposite
extreme you know. Would if Ihe ASP started
sounding like the Times Union or Ihe Daily News.
Those papers arc pure Establish men t. Do you call
THEM objective?"
The answer to Marsha's question is of course NO.
The Times Union and the Daily News arc not
"objective," and for thai mallei neither is Ihe New
York Times. The myth of "objcclivily" is dusled
off for another try whenever there is disagreemem
over what a newspaper should he saying. What ii
boils down to is this: If you agree with the paper it's
"objective," if you don't it's "biased."
Ken and Linda should concentrate their criticism
in the areas exemplified by Marsha's comment on
spelling and writing, for here a charge of ineptitude
would easily stick. No paper should try justifying
misspelling and poor writing, whether it he the ASP
or the New York Times. Incompetence in these two
areas reflects directly on the paper's regard for its
audience, and a reader finding a paper Hawed this
way is quite right in yelling "bias." After all, a
paper's first concern is communication.
The question of "objectivity" needs elaboration
however. When Ken calls the ASP a "political rag"
he is using a term applicable to all newspapers. Take
the Daily News; how should we define its political
slant? Liberal? Left? Extreme Left? Anyone reading
the News regularly knows it's none of these. What
about The New York Times? --Right? Extreme
Right? Conservative? Mayhe conservative, but certainly not the other two.
What is an "objective" paper then? The answer is
obvious: the term "objectivity" cannot be adequately defined or achieved, and in fact becomes a
pernicious rationale for excluding insightful analysis
which might compromise vested Interests, Publishers, administrators, parent corporations and Ihe like
arc all for digging as long as it's not on their turf.
Coli.g.' "'»
S,r 1
Forbidden Turf, that is the real rationale behind the
"objcclivily" argument.
Least we should seem to totter on the prectpiccof
"irresponsibility" we should straightaway define our
"bias": I) The ASP believes in Advocacy journalism. A newspaper can be seen as an instrument
either of social change or stagnation. If its function
is the public interest then it must trod on the
Forbidden Turf. This is not the green light for
incompetence, but for the kind of journalism devoted to Ihe public interest (in our case I lie campus
community). 2) A conscientious attempt to improve
the writing quality of our paper. A poorly written
story is a poorly written story. There is no rationale
for incompetence at the expense of the reader and it
is the job of a newspaper to insure that ideas are
coherent, facts are accurate, and analysis is meaningful.
During this past intercession period, dormitory rooms were, in the
words of housing staff members,
"inspected" for property damage
and possession of appliances and
dorr.lLory furniture in violation
of University regulations. It is the
inspection of room closets which
raises the question of whether
permissible inspection or illegal
search has taken place.
While on-campus student residents were vacationing, housing
personnel, in teams of two or
more, were opening and visually
inspecting closets and their contents-supposedly without disturbing personal belongings inside.
The inspection of closets arises
from the interpretation of the
University Legal Counsel that closets comprise a part of the dormitory room which, according to the
residence contract, the Housing
Office reserves the right to inspect
for the reasons mentioned above.
However, important questions
pose themselves when considering
this act of closet inspection.
In a conversation with Dean
Knapton, a member of the
Housing Office staff, he commented that desk and dresser drawers
were not "inspected" since they
would almost certainly contain
personal possessions. By this definition of what is protected from
inspection, why were the closets
opened? They also contain personal possessions. If you wish to
adhere strictly to the judgment of
IOFIS : biafra
Most people will agree that the
situation in Biafra is deplorable.
Unfortunately, most people's involvement ends there. They look
gravely at the pictures of children
with bloated bellies, and they
remark how terrible it is, how
very terrible. This is as far as their
"action" goes. After all, what can
one person do anyway?
A few people are taking action
however. One of them is Jason

With these questions in mind,
consider the response of Norma J.
Edsall, Director of Residences, to
another serious question raised by
the inspection of closets. When
asked if the discovery of obviously unlawful items during the inspection of a closet could result
to the drawing of a search warrant
and the seizure of such items, Miss
Edsall answered affirmatively.
A serious issue is now revealed
when aspects of closet inspection
are questioned-that of illegal
search. After considering this act
of closet inspection in terms of
the questions raised and the evidence cited, it appears that little
separates permissible inspection
from illegal search when a closed
area containing personal articles is
opened for the purpose of inspection.
Whether or not such an inspection is legal can only be
determined through a test case in
a court of law. Until that time
when legal precedent is established, only speculation can
take place as to which principle
applies--the constitutional rights
of the individual or the property
rights of the University.
by Jason Roth
Jason immediately responded
by organizing a campaign to raise
money. The immediate objective
was to get food to Christian, who
Jason felt would share it with as
many people as he could.
With the collapse of Biafra,
however, the situation has
changed. The country has been
thrown into more chaos than before, and since Jason has not
heard from Christian since that
initial letter, he has no way of
knowing whether or not he is
alive. But even if it proves impossible to get supplies to Christian
and his village, there are many
others who are just as much in
need, and Jason intends to help a.s
many of them a.s possible.
The response -so far has been
overwhelming. A group of students is helping to secure donations and to coordinate activities.
Offers of monetary aid and of
supplies have poured in through
the mail. Allan A. Kuusisto, acting
president ot SUNYA, has pledged
his support, Nume-ous religious
groups have joined the crusade.

A Rebuttal
To the editor:
I would like to answer Mr. Richard
Rini's remarks to myself in the December
16 ASP. First of all Mr. Rini shouldn't
refer to anyone as being stupid unless he
can spell their name right, it's NEIDL not
NAIDL (to imply that people in class
houses shouldn't throw stones). I could, in
this letter, shoot holes in Mr. Rini's
argument or worse 1 could degrade myself
to personal insult as he did. I wouldn't do
this since the school wouldn't benefit and
it would turn into a personal argument
wheih wouldn't be newsworthy. Mr. Rini
has been a fine manager and should be
commended for it. I admire his team
My gripe is that Albany State is a
university playing in a college division.
Besides this many of the teams we play do
offer scholarships. I know for a fact Siena
does and you can't tell me that Hartwick
doesn 't. There seems to be some mysterious law that forbids state schools from
offering athletic scholarships. Doesn't this
rule apply to the University of Buffalo
which plays university division ball? Besides, if such a law does exist, we the
students, should fight to have it changed.
We are trying to model our university
system after the one in California so why
shouldn't we copy all their good points.
Are we always going to treat intercollegiate sports as a poor relative?
I would like to rectify the impression
my last letter to the ASP (Dec. 12) left.
Maybe it sounded bitter but what else
could you expect after seeing my team
lost to a team like Plattsburg. I wasn't
trying to make fun of our team. In fact,
I'm an avid State basketball fan. If fans at
the games listen closely they can hear me
cheering loudly above the crowd. I was
really proud of the way we played our
next two games (against Marist and Hartwick).
I'm tired of hearing friends from Siena
and other schools telling me we have a
chump schedule. Let's face it, we're bigger

Public Speaking courses and, since his

Professor McNally is an able, very capable, interesting instructor. He treats the
students in his class realistically and as
competent individuals. He encourages
them to seek extra help and willingly gives
it to them. He evaluates the students
individually and fairly. And, because of all
this has the respect and support of this
student. In my opinion he is among the
few worthwhile instructors I've encountered at this University.
I see no reason why the possibility of his
becoming a candidate for the chairmanship of the RPA Department should in
anyway affect consideration of his gaining
an Associate Professorship at this University. I personally would recommend him
very highly for the Associate Professorship
and would be very disappointed if the
University lost out in this respect.
criticize in the communities in which our
parents live? How can we possibly hope to
change society if we have succeeded in
creating a mirrored image of that society
on our own campus? When the valiant
rhetoric is ended, in the interval between
emotional campaigns, at that time when
we meet life as it is, without the illusions
of romanticism which seem to engender
momentary heroism, what is the quality of
our lives?
It seems that education is not the panacea I had anticipated. It seems that this
educated generation is not going to be the
reformer it thought it would be and that
those courageous dreams for a future of
humane and meaningful living will always
remain dreams for the future. The cancer
that is consuming the world mlust be incurable, and the disease's cause is not our
ignorance but us.

1 must have been a fool. I trusted in
education a.s the hope for the future. I
looked at a world growing impersonal,
mediocre and frenzied and believed that
educated men could learn to control it,
that knowledge could bring the understanding and courage necessary to rehumanize this steel and plastic atrocity of
a planet upon which we are obliged to live.
With a child's credulity I continued to
have faith in the human intellect believing
that the unnatural and vicious character of
this world was a temporary and curable
illness whose contagion was dependant on
human ignorance.
Then, foolish and credulous, I arrived al
this university, my luggage filled with
hopes and anticipation. Six months at this
institution were sufficient to destroy my
illusions. Instead of discovering the cure I
had sought, I found in this academic
e n v i r o n m e n t , this "community of
scholars," an open sore in which festered
all the pestilence which afflicts the rest of
the world.
In the cafeteria, the dorms, the halls, the
buses, I discovered the entire range of
human deprivation disguised in the costume of sophistication. What is the cruelty
of the world but a magnification of the
suffering that we inflict upon one another
in our conversations? What is the materialism of the world if not a reflection of that
superficiality and concern for trivia which
characterizes our everyday intercourse?
And what is the misunderstanding of the
world if not an outgrowth of that refusal
lo listen of which we are all so guilty? In
our conversations we merely serve on
another in the capacity of empty caves

meaningless rhetoric to create echo
chambers in which each may glory at the
sound of his own voice.
One of our favorite games is criticizing
the slererolyped, meaningless and sometimes animalistic quality of life which our
society inflicts upon itself. But then, how
do we live? Each quad has the capacity for

about themselves. Where is the sincerity,

1. Upon entering the lot, everyone will
drive around the lot three (.']) times, (twice
forward, once in reverse) while singing
ANCHORS AWEIGH and tooting their
horns in time with their singing.
2. Starting with the row at the west side,
all cars with plates ending with odd

continue as above.
4. During inclement weather, the above
procedure will be simplified as follows:
cars will circle only once and the driver
will hum any tune of his choice. Starting
at the north end of each row, cars will be
parked in cyclic ascending order of the
final digit in the license number. In cases
where the last number of the license, the

What of your parents? I have much hope
that you ail are very sound in health

What of your studies? I hope you are

Jason, I am doing evangelical work in the

your ernest prayer for our country to become quiet that lives would not be perishing. Lives perish and hunger has a great
part in this war. Myself, I am seriously

would help us in this matter of hunger. If
you can, send us some wheat or cornmeal--or formula II or any type of carbohydrate. If you also see any protein food
such as beans or tined beef or egg yoke, I
shall be pleased. I shall also like you to see
if you can buy us some olive oil for our
prayers-any size at all, either in the size or
bottle size. Again I need some salt which is

Hal has a 3.9 grade point average. He's a sociology
major and constantly receives letters commending
him on his research and work. He'll graduate next
semester after taking only two or three classes. His
teachers think he's fantastic, He plans to get his
master's degree in a couple of semesters and then
get his doctorate and then teach sociology and then
become head of the sociology department which he
is sure he can do because everyone thinks he's a
genius. When he talks about all of this, he doubles
over in peals of laughter, stoned on acid jus he
usually is.
In fact, I don't think there is a moment when Hal
isn't stoned. He goes to class stoned, studies stoned,
writes papers stoned. When various "important" faculty members ask to see him to discuss his current
project or offer him a scholarship or commend his
research, he goes to see them
Hal says he's "living out his

of course, they don't know it. As

to go through the mental anguish
involved in making a decision
when a person is afflicted with
that disease of Too Much Consciousness.
To Hal, the important things are
his relationships with his friends.
These require basically no decisions because whatever the
friends are doing Hal will do, and
the spectrum of activities is limited by the desires of his friends,
which were basically the same as
his to begin with and most certainly became his as the group
grew closer together. When he
becomes head of the sociology
department, Hal intends to keep
acting in the movie as the school
directs, but to buy a ranch so that
he and all his friends can live
together on It.
For Hal , drugs are fun and
simply make the movie easier to
act in. It is easier to laugh on
drugs, to mock the system and
easier to never let himself take the
movie seriously. If he took it
seriously, he would have to make
decisions, and decisions are simply
too painful when you see such a
large number of alternatives.

Richie Havens Climaxes 'Sonof a Weekend'
by Linda Waters
The posters proclaimed that
"On Feb. 6,7,&8, things are gonna
loosen up." Wild, wild weekend
number two was upon us, though
perhaps the main fault with the
weekend was that things were too
loose. The events were meant to
supply something for everyone, or
at least to supply something for
nearly everyone. But what
actually happened was that a series of events comparable to those
held on any normal weekend were
grouped together under the title
of "son of a weekend."
This is not to say, however, that
this event was a complete failure,nor that it was not worthwhile. It provided exactly what
was needed fop a first weekend
back at school; namely, opportunities for meeting new people,
and events to enjoy with old
Friday night allowed people to
mix and match up at a mixer
featuring "Mammoth" and sponsored by TXO in the Campus
Center ballroom. For those who
were already paired up, or who
just wanted to relax with good
company and better entertainment, at Guitar Cup, the mood
was soft and the lights were low
over at the Dutch Quad flagroom.
The informal atmosphere lent
much to the evening, and everyone was invited to pull up a niece
of the rug and enjoy themselves.
Larry Brown proved to be an able
Master of Ceremonies, as well as a
more than able performer, and
was supported by the talents of
Brendon Montano, Hector Rivera,
Allison Carr, Rich Larris, Kaye
Kraft, Ellie Kelly, Andy Avery,
and Frank Harding.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch,
the Lone Ranger, Tonto, and
Hopalong Cassidy were riding the
range over in Lecture Room 7.
The film series was repeated at
7:30 and 10:00 on both nights,
und fans of the Masked Man and
Hoppy, trivia experts, and those
who were still children at heart
(which was practically the entire
audience) were able to "return
with us now to those thrilling
days of yesteryear."
1'he Saturday night activities
were scheduled around the principal event of the weekend, the
Richie Havens concert. Two
mixers were held after the concert, one on Colonial Quad and
one nn Dutch Quad, for all those
who wanted to keep in the mood
set by the concert and dance for
most of the night. A pizza and
beer party was held in the Campus
Center Cafeteria for those who
wanted a snack after the concert,
and a band was there to provide
music as well. All of these events
were well attended.
A few things could have been
improved, however. The idea of
mixers after the concert was a
good one, but the flag rooms were
too small and too far apart for
this purpose. It might have been
b e t t e r to have both quads
co-sponsor one large mixer in a
central location. The pizza party
achieved success, but I noticed
about the same amount of people
in the Snack Bar at the same time.
In fact, several couples were
hiking their pizza and beer into
the snack bar area where they said
there was "more atmosphere."
And although I enjoyed Guitar
Cup circuit at Dutch, I feel that a
bit more planning could have been
done as far as the program was
concerned in order to prevent the
repetition of the same songs by
several performers.
But aside from the few technicalities, the weekend was a success, and a great deal of credit
should be extended to all those
who helped to make it possible,
including Comm. Programming
Commission, Colonial, Dutch and
State Quads, IFC-ISC, the Music

On Friday night, the Contemporary Chamber Ensemble of
New York City, led by conductor
Arthur Weisberg, presented a performance before a full house in
the main theatre of the Performing Arts Center that can only
be described as phenomenal.
The program presented by the
group, which was sponsored by
the Music Council, consisted of
two of the works of the early
20th century which did so much
to bring about the dominant form
of this era, that is, the composition for mixed chamber ensemble.
The two works' , surprisingly considered "contemporary" by many
people, despite their advanced age
(53 and 57 years respectively),
were Stravinsky's L'Histoire du
Soldat, andd Schoenberg's Pierrot
Lunaire. The Stravinsky was written in 1917 as the musical part of
a play-ballet collaborated on by
Stravinsky, Ramuz, and Ansermet, and the suite extracted from
the work bv the comooaer con*
sists of 11 selections from that
music arranged in roughly chronological order to musically convey
the plot. The real importance in
this work however, is not in the
breezy melodies, the clatter of the
bi-tonal marches, or the incredible
wit that crackes from almost
every phrase, but in the media
with which the composer sought
to represent his musical thought.
With the small group of instruments at his disposal, Stravinsky
created a musical texture that is at
once full and yet intimate. Even
such movements as the Tango
with its violin and percussion
duet, sound almost symphonic in
By using a minimum of means
for a maximum of effect, Stravinsky contributed much to the 20th
century chamber tradition. The
performance of this work was

flashes forward or cuts to something vaguely related with Eddie's

patchwork of celluloid. Kazan

purposes of his own creation. It is
puzzling as to whether we are
witnessing a sincere, massive satire

unconscious awakening of a businessman satyr.

to change his life have to do with
anything beyond satisfying the
itch in his erogenous zones. Mr.
Douglas, long ignored as a dim'
pled chin muscleman instead of
being adjudged a serious actor, is
sincere in his projection of the
core of Eddie's neurosis. It is not
his fault that the character eludes
any true sympathy. Kazan is to
blame for giving little depth to
this phallic symbol that walks like
a man.
Faye Dunaway, the cynical,
nympho secretary and third part
of the arrangement gives the best
performance. Her tart, blistering
comments about the nature of
E d d i e ' s indecision and self•preoccupation are the film's most
truthful moments. Her greatest
flaw is that she represents the acid
tongued truth teller who points
out everyone else's faults while
ignoring her own sex oriented
short comings. As her disposition
becomes increasingly bitter that
character becomes a sour, selfish
caricature of the emancipated woman. Her bitterness is authentic
but her reasoning less than messianic.
Deborah Kerr as Eddie's wife
looks as though she was exhumed
from the dead and acts about as
enthusiastically as a cadaver.
Richard Boone is nearly unintelligible as Eddie's strong man father and Jume Cronyn as the
family lawyer has a few amusing,
sardonic lines to recite.
Despite this reviewers affinity
for Kazan as a quality filmaker, it
is obvious that he has succumbed
to utilizing flashy "now" techniques to disquise the soap opera
inadequacies of his self pitying
script. Instead of a film about a
man brutalized within his environment we get a film about the
horny escapades of an egoist
which is something less than real
and much less than the artistry
connected with the name Kazan.

continued from page 6
Loren Baritz, professor of history at State University of New
York at Albany, has been appointed co-chairman of the Policy
Council on Research and Service,
an agency of the Assembly on
University Goals and Governance.
Richard Lewontin, a geneticist at
the University of Chicago, is the
other co-chairman of the council.
The specific charge to the policy
Council on Research and Service
includes the request for answers
to such questions as these: "What
kinds of research are appropriate
to the universities? Who should
decide? Do financial inducements
by government and industry concentrate research unduly in a few
fields? What principles should govern the allocation of research resources? What community services
should universities perform? To
what extent can the university
assume responsibility for the city,
the poor, the blacks?"
The assembly was established in
September by the American Academy of Arts an Science. It is
charged "with exploring, developing, and helping to implement
alternative approaches for resolving some of the principal issues
affecting colleges and universities
today." Talcott Parsons is president of the academy and the
policy councils are underwritten
by a consortium of foundations,
principally the Ford and Rockefeller foundations.
Professor Baritz, in the performance of the task assigned to
the committee, will convene seminars and conferences with leading
scholars in all fields of American
academic life, take testimony
from interested experts, draw on
the resources of the American
Academy, confer with professional associations, and seek the
assistance of legislators.
Professor Baritz, who joined the
Albany university faculty this
year, is the recipient of maior
awards from the Social Science
Research Council and the American Council of Learned Societies.
He is the author of numerous
published works including, "City

Danes Drop Second Straight to Cortland, 72-70
by Mark Grand
Since Ihe last issue of the ASP,
the Albany State basketball team
continued its winning ways and
conpiled a 6-3 record over the
span. This included a first place
finish in the Capitol City Tournament held over the Christmas vacation.
The individual scores of those
games are as follows: a 63-62 loss
to Hartwick; victories over Union,
71-60, and RP1.68-56, in the holiday tournament; defeat by Merrimack, 67-59; edging Oneonta,
74-54; beating Hobart, 59,55; defeating Pratt 76-70; winning over
Potsdam, 65-53 and losing to
Southern Connecticut, 86-59.
The bench played an important
part in the Pratt and Potsdam victories as injuries and foul trouble
hampered the Danes. Injured cm
the team are sophomore John
llever and starter Alan Raid. RC'KI
was hurd in the Pratt game but
has since returned to the lineup.
Jack Jordan continues to lead
the Danes in scoring! 16.7) and rebounding (12.4). Jim Masterson,
scoring IK points against Pratt, increased his average to 11.3, followed by captain Jack Adams
(9.8), Alan Reid(9.6) and Steve
Sheehan (8.3). The team's defensive average dipped to 62.0, keeping them among the nation's leaders in that category.
In its most recent encounter,
the Dane Five lost a lough overtime contest to Cortland. 72-70.
T'wh 15 seconds remaining in
regulation play and Albany prolecting a two point advantage,
Cortland's Mike Eidel netted the
tying basket that sent the game
into overtime.
Albany led, 70-69, with I :25 In
go in overtime play, but Eidel
then scored on a tayup, and Earl
Rogers added a free throw with
13 seconds remaining to run the
score to 72-70, which proved to
be the final count.

« Draft Counseling
by Dave Peck
Students at Albany State will soon be able to avail themselves of draft
counseling on campus. Central Council passed a bill on January 8,
which provides $30 to be used to set up a draft counseling library in the
Student Association office, Within a few weeks there will also be a
counselor available at all times.
The bill was introduced by Dave Neufeld, head of the Political and
Social Positions Committee. A bookshelf with limited materials has
already been set up in the Student Association office and more books
are expected shortly. Some of the booklets are for free and some for a
slight charge. Neufeld emphasizes that if a student can't afford the
material he can have it for what ever he can afford, or for free.
VICTOR K. LOOPER, VICE-PRESIDENT of Student Aaocbtion, bean down on some organizations while
lavishing others with honey in his "Budget Philosophy for 1970-71," recently introduced in Central
The Albany Peace Center, along with PSP, plans to train the draft
counselors. Anyone who would like to become a counselor should
come to CC 346 at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, February 17 for a short meeting
explaining the type of training one has to go through to become a draft
counselor. Those who can't attend should call 7-8756.
Crime on campus up 100%;
Security force still only 31 men
Draft counseling is not draft evasion or resistance. A Counselor will
tell a student his options and his alternatives. He willnot tell a student
what to do and will not make any decisions for the student. Neufeld
feels that it is important not to
bv Al
Incidents of crime on campus
have .skyrocketed more than one
hundred percent In the past year,
according to James Connally,
chief of the SUNYA security
force. And the critical situation is
not apt lo improve as them »re no
plans to hire additional men.
This gloomy picture is the end
result of a variety of causes. Although the amount of persons and
property protected by security
has increased over the past year,
the number of patrolmen has
stayed the same- thirty one
(grouped into three shifts).
Unbelievably, there is but one
investigator. He is responsible for
the follow-up work on EVERY
CASE. Since most arrests are the
result of lengthy investigation,
there is an obvious problem.
All requests for increases have
been systematically turned down.
Furthermore, priority is placed
on keeping police at "fixed
posts," which they cannot leave.
Thus the responsibility for virtually all police patrolling falls on
the two patrol units. And a great
deal of THEIR time is occupied
by tasks such as transporting ill
students to the infirmary or hospital. Last year, 730 such calls
were made. Each response ties up
one of the cars (half of the patrolling force) for at least thirty minutes. Attempts to £et a third
marked patrolling car or hire a
Connally also cited a dire need
for supervisors in each platoon to
assure cooperation and coordinate efforts.
These requests, like the others,
are annually turned down by the
Bureau of the Budget.
And how does this bureaucratic
red tape effect the student? In
January of 1969, there were 21
thefts. Last January, there were
41. Criminal mischief cases increased 60%. And burgularies
doubled. Yet, in typical AliceIn-Wonderland fashion, during
peak crime hours only seven to
eight officers are on duty. One
policeman each is stationed in the
lecture complex (usually a private
Burns guard), at the desk in security, at the library, fine arts center, as a watchman, and in the two
cars. To put it simply, I here are
scarcely enough bodies to fill the
What can he clone to reverse the
situation? As a start, the funds
used to hire private guards should
be diverted to the campus security
force. SUNYA police are generally
younger «ud are better acquainted
with campus problems.
Secondly, mobility should be
emphasized; patrolmen at "fixed
posts" should be allowed to patrol
even though certain people who
demand extra protection may become upset.
But the real solution lies with
the student himself. As a start,
Chief Connally would like
SUNYA students to realize the
police are present to "perform a
service instead of being viewed as
unnecessary interference with students." Ultimately, that IS the
answer, for we must realize it is in
our interest to demand a stop to
the sacrificing of security needs.
