The students petitioned Dean
Thome to call Bell and make him
aware of the situation. One student attempted to call Coach Bell
during the meeting, but he reported that a "scared" secretary
said he wasn't in.
Team representatives met with
Thorne and he took their names.
All but two teams were represented. The rest of the students decided to stay in the Ballroom until
the issue was settled. It was then
announced that there were also
volleyball games that night, but
they were quickly cancelled.
At the end of the conference,
the matter was still up in the air,
but Dean Thorne would investigate and discuss it with the Coach.
The students left with the feeling
that the gym would be theirs in
any case.
Strong, angry but opposing
pressures were exerted on the administration lute last week and
yesterday either to cancel William
Kunstler's speech or to authorize
the use of the university's largest
facility for the event, the gymnasium.
Approximately 700 students,
Tilling three-quarter., of the ballroom confronted Dr. Clifton
Thorne at yesterday's conference
with the demand that he exercise

On the other hand, citing the
violent demonstrations in Santa
Barbara, California, which followed a Kunstler speech, Assemblyman Neil Kelleher telephoned
Dr. Charles O'Reilly, vice-president, with the demand that the
speech be cancelled altogether.
Kelleher is the sponsor of a proposal to dismiss teachers who refuse to pledge allegiance to the
flag in classroom ceremonies.
While Dr. O'Reilly reaffirmed
the right of Kunstler to speak, administrative officials seriously
hesitated to free the gym.
"So far as we are concerned
Mr.Kunstler is a man with a point
of view invited by a student group
to speak on campus. The policy of
the Board of Trustees is very clear
and we will adhere to it."
What was not clear however,
was the attitude of the administration to the visit. "The institution
does not believe it should be
handled by administrative fiat"

Kunstler to appear
Thursday in Gym!
William M. Kunstler, Chief
Counsel for the defense in the
Chicago 8 Conspiracy Trial will
speak at the Albany State Campus, Thursday evening at H:00
Kunstler will definitely speak
but the location of the rally has
just been clarified. The gym is the
only building capable of holding
the thousands of peoplu oxpoctod
to attend but was being tuotl by
the intramural basketball teams.
The demands of the 700 students prosont at the pross conference resulted in tho release of a
statomont by Doan Sorroll Chosin:
"Wo havo boen informed by tho
Vice President of the AM1A,
George Turo, that tho intramural
playoffs will be postponed. As a
result the gymnasium wilt be available on Thursday evening for
scheduling Mr. Kunstler's appearance."
University students will be admitted to tho gym at 7:00. ID
cards are required. At 7:30 the
doors will bo opened for tho general public.

"What you have to do is tell
Bell (Harold Bell, AMIA Director)
t o reschelule that goddamn
game!" countered his opposition.
The- rising tension came at a
time when radical activity has
been increasing throughout the
nation - much of it connected
with the Chicago Conspiracy trial.
Major demonstrations and violent
confrontations occurred last week
in Washington DC (Watergate),
Chicago, Boston, Madison, Wisconsin, Los Angeles, Chapel Hill,
North Carolina, San Jose, Santa
Barbara, and Buffalo.
It often seemed at Monday's
press conference, that the administration was either entangled in
its own beauracracy or that it was
giving in to the demands of Kelleher and conservatives of the Albany Community.
The New Left Organizing Committee and Student Mobilization
issued a joint flyer Monday morning charging the university of the
latter — of attempting "to make
the impact of Mr. Kunstler's visit
as negligible as possible."
In an interview Friday, John
Kaufman of the NLOC, vowed
that if Kunstler's speech were
barred from the gym, students
would "tear this place apart." The
anger and disgust almost universally displayed at one press conference gave added impact to these

Finer food
for Frosh
by J.P. Prendegast
Two hundred and fifty residents of Alumni Quadrangle, disgusted with the inferior meals
served to them by Food Service,
boycotted the Wulden dining
room Saturday night.
They ate their dinners instead
in the dining room of Brubacher
Hall, the graduate student dining
area. They carried signs and chanted "Good food...not shit!"
A meeting was immediately arranged with Mr. Corbiey of Food
Service to discuss the situation.
Six representatives—Lenny Moss,
Tony Chen, Al Senia and Lenny
Marks (the four originators of the
action) along with Mat Heyman
and Phil Chansky (president and
vice-president of Walden Council)
made a list of eight demands.
They wore:
1) Two fresh choices of meals
every day for dinner (with the option of serving leftovers as a third
2) No recooking of leftovers into fresh meals. (This was in response to the fact that leftover
meat and sausage are often used as
"fillers" for such meals as la•agntt.)
3) The wearing of hair nets by
female food servers.
4) Fresh desserts.
5) Posted menus.

challenge, b u t they need our coo p e r a t i o n . T o m e e t t h e needs of
the high school p u p i l , schools are
doubling t h e n u m b e r of teachers
in their p r o g r a m s and the few

they are available. A n d that brings
us t o t h e crux of the p r o b l e m - t h e
p r e s e n t s u p p l y of qualified teachers does n o t m e e t the d e m a n d and
needs of the local s c h o o l districts.
T h e r e were at least twenty-five
traffic safety e d u c a t i o n positions

Student Power!
Dear Editors,
This is a reply to Thea Gentile's
letter in the February 27th issue
or the ASP. I work Tor Student
Power, and feel that the problem
is not whether someone gave the
finger to Thea, but rather the student apathy on campus. You may
note that many students take it as
a personnl affront when you ask
them to sign ;i letter or a petition.
Others, in spile of the fact that
they feel that students need a
greater voice in this school, still
refuse to sign because they don't
want to get involved.
We didn't present people with
only a petition for Gerry Wagner,
but also with a letter quoting the
declaration recently affirmed by
the University Senate that "sLudenls are entitled to be consulted,
and their opinions and desires
weighed in the formalinn of decisions on academic matters," as
well iis expressing support for Gerry.
We told the students that if
they could cross out the sentence
about Gerry if they disagreed with
our stand on him, but felt the
need for more student power.
Basically, the issue is the student's
say in his own education, and Gerry Wagner is merely the current
focal point.
If to sit in a class three times a
week, listen, Lake notes, and pass
your tests, is "learning," then all
that is necessary for "learning" is
a textbook. Hopefully, part of the
learning process is lo question and
not be satisfied with answers that
are fed to you, to search for some
truths by yourself. We don't need
more big-name faculty who can't
teach, but more people like Gerry
who make us think.
Dear Editor,
As a member of the class of
1971, I am aware of the tradition
that juniors seeking class office
will not campaign due to the conflict with the Myskania elections. I
feel that this tradition is outdated
and undemocratic. This year there
are thirteen positions open on
Mysdania and fourteen nominees,
thus the election is not that significant whereas in the past with a
larger number of nominees it may
have been. Secondly, in an election for class officers the ideas of
the candidates should be made
public. They should he allowed
and encouraged rather than discouraged to reach their class
through any means possible. What
is the basis of an election without
campaigning? I have no idea, unless it is not to perpetuale that
which has existed in the past
whether it be good or had. IL is
abhorrent in a university community that the flow of ideas is
curtailed and il is even more abhorrent that this flow is curtailed
during aan election. I would be
glad to see the class of ' 7 1 , my
class, to break from this oppressive tradition and conduct their
campaign in a democratic manner.
Respectfully submitted.

On Passing the Bullshit:
One commonly observed
characteristic of a political animal
is his willingness to grant license
to those of similar viewpoint
while seeking to repress opposition opinions. Troy Assemblyman
Neil Kelleher's attempt to prevent
attorney William Kunstler from
speaking on this campus is true to
this characteristic. It is unjustifiably repressive.
Kelleher, seeking to enhance his
popularity in an election year, has
chosen to appeal to the lowest instincts of the electorate regardless
of the infringements on the liberties of Mr. Kunstler and those
who want to hear what he has to
say. As in most 'book burning'
type episodes, the Assemblyman
seems to be pre-occupied with
symptoms rather than causes of
society's illnesses.
The SlINYA administration has
responded wisely to the situation,
defending its policy of allowing
students to schedule speakers
"with a wide range of social opinions." We, the students, on this

elected to office. Right now elections for class officers, MYSKANIA
and Alumni Board are upon us. Soon elections for LAAC, Central
Council and University Senate will be in order. Many criticism have
been made abou elections at Albany in the past. Since little change
has come from these criticisms they are worth repeating again.
II. seems strange during the year when there is a lot of work to be
done by various groups that there are few people available to help.
Yet, when elections roll around suddently names start appearing all
over Ihe campus and people are mysteriously interested.
The academic podium littered with posters is an example of this
and of the Albany State campaign philosophy - - "stay hidden, don't
say anything and plaster your name all over the place."
This so-called name game campaign has been in evidence in most
elections on campus for years. Attempts were made during the University Senate elections to break this philosophy. Candidates were encouraged lo express their views so when some candidates did make a
positions statement it looked like improvement was being made. Yet,
instead a new even more dangerous trend was started. Candidates took
stands on platforms that were irrelevant to the offices they sought.
How can the peace symbol be equated with running the internal affairs of the University. Is a man to be elected to office just because
there is a peace sign on bis posters?
There are many ramifications to this and other problems in our
elections. As it stands now, turnouts for voting in elections have been
quite small. Thus the power block vote has become a dominating
influence. The dorm, fraternity and other types of related groups go
out and vote for an individual because be is a member, not because he
will do the best job.
It is up to the individual voter to get out and vote. Before he can do
that however, the candidates must make themselves and their views
available to their constituents.
We must strive for larger voter turnouts. Perhaps by going Lo each
quad and the Campus Center.
The bloc vote must he disintegrated and all the people whose names
appear so suddenly must be kept aetive;win or lose. Only then will we
be on our way to having a more active and less apathetic University
student body. Find out who the people are. Get out and vote.

chairwoman of the Student Mobilization Committee to Rncl the War,
called the principal of Milne School to reserve Page Hall Tor the annual
Rites of Spring on March 15.
Upon giving my name and the nature of my request lo reserve
Page Hall, I was cut short by the principal's response- "I was lipped
off that I would get a call from you people. You can't have Page for
your lawyer follow; you'll have to have him speak on you own
campus. That trouble maker won't be speaking here." His entire
manner of speaking was antagonistic anddefehsive.
I cut through his tirade against Kunstler to explain my request for
the Rites of Spring on March 15- the principal, the wind taken out of
his tirade, still questioned me about who the rec|iiesl was really for.
When I expressed objection to his antagonism and hostility, 1 was
told to calm down and not get nasty. Page Hall was ultimately
obtained for March 1 5 for the annual Rites of Spring celebration.
The key to this entire episode is twofold: 1) on Friday afternoon
President Kuusisto promised the sponsors of Kunstler thai if the gym
was not obtained they could definitely have Page Hall (which
illCidontly is far too small). This was a bullshit tactic, lor Ibis

entertain speakers of various viewpoints, but the obligation as well.
Implied in this policy, is a tolerance towards speakers with whom
we may disagree. Let us not follow the misguided steps of Mr.
Kelleher and seek to silence the

opinions. Should a spokesman of
the political right seek to speak at

It is imperative that Mr. Kunstler or any other advocate of a political position (whether it be popular or not) be allowed to speak at

Football Very Probable!
Athletic director Dr. Alfred C.
Werner announced today that,
pending approval of its proposed
1970-71 budget by the New York
State Legislature, State University
at Albany will field a club football
team this fall. The budget would
include provision to hire an additional physical education department member. Dr. Werner
currently is seeking a man who
would coach football and lacrosse,
in addition to his teaching assignments in the department.
A six-game 1970 schedule has
been prepared in anticipation of
the u n i v e r s i t y ' s first intercollegiate football pregram. Throe
home and three away games have
been lined up for the fledgling
gridders including home contests
with neighboring Siena College
and Hudson Valley Community
College. Home games will be
played on the field encircled by
the running track behind the
physical education building. Permanent bleachers on the steps of
the building will accomodate an1
estimated 2,200 persons and
temporary bleachers may provide
additional seating.
Road contests are scheduled
with Towson State College of Baltimore, Md., Marist College, and
State University College at Plattsburgh. The season will open with
a home game against. Rochester
Institute of Technology on Homecoming Saturday, October 10. Only Hudson Valley, a two-year
school, and Towson State, which
played a club schedule last fall,
will field varsity teams. The other
foes, however, all have experience
as club teams.
The addition of football would
bring to 11 the number of men's
intercollegiate sports at Albany.
Varsity programs currently are administered in cross- country soccer, basketball, wrestling, swimming, track and field, lacrosse,
baseball, tennis, and golf. Junior
varsity squads in cross-country,
soccer, baseball, track and field,
golf, and tennis; and a freshman
team in basketball also compete.
A sailing club, open to all men
and women at the university, has
fall and spring intercollegiate competition.

Saturday night they shot an excellent 50% from the field, including
2-1-37 in the second half. Jack Jordan led State with twenty-five
points and guards Jack Adams and
Jim Mastorson each added twenty-two. Forward Al lleid picked
up eight assists, the single game

Tonight, Albany travels north
to meet Oswego State, which is

State. As was to be expected, the
score was 67-33 in Oneonta's
favor. During the process of their
victory, Oneonta established six
new Albany Pool records one of
which, the 200 yd. breast stroke ,
bettered last year's SUNY championships mark by almost a full second.
Looking back over this first full
varsity year, Coach Brian Kelly
states that he was very pleased
with the amount of improvement
the team has made. Even though
the team had amassed only a 1-11
record, the actual experience of
varsity competition will make our
team, which is a largely freshman
contingent that much stronger
next year.
As far as next season is concorned, Kelly has done some personal recruiting which will definitely strengthen our young team.
Three promising candidates who
have already been accepted to
next year's freshman class are
Gary Canter, an Individual Medlay
swimmer from Poughkeepsie
High, John Dos Passos, a Butterflier from Bethlehem High, and
Leonard Van Ryn, a free-styler also from Bethlehem.
The State swimmers will finish
their season this Friday and Saturday at the upper New York State
Swimming Association Championships at RIT. State's hopefulls will
be their bight point getters Andy
McGrorty, Pete Gerstenhaher, and
Jaik Schubert, With outstanding
performances from the entire
team, we might finish somewhere
in the bottom five placos of this
twelve team championship meet.

Soloist: Don Ferrar, Trumpet:
Bob Brookmeyer, Piano and
Trombone: Buddy Clark, Bass:
Zoot Sims, TenonGerry Mulligan,
leader, baritone sax, and piano,
and concert jazz band.
Although west coast jazz is
pretty much part of the past it is
still interesting both musically and
sociologically. It is the first time
that a new direction in jazz has
been dominated by whites rather
than blacks (although Miles Davis
• a black trumpet player has often
been credited as its unofficial
leader). Its music has been characteristically introverted, and
morose rather than angry and extroverted. As a result it can become rather limpid and boring
But the Mulligan big band has successfully eluded these pitfalls,
thanks largely to the presence of
one of the most fluent saxophonists, Zoot Sims.
Side one opens with "Go
Home." A .slow chorda!, bluesy
piano introduction leads into a
Four Brothers sound slating the
four bar melody against a trombone-sax pigment. Mulligan slips
in a simple but enthusiastic baritone sax solo and steps back for
Zoot. With a warm and bluesy heginning Sims builds through a scries of counter riffs by the trombone and trumpet sections. The
whole band enters and Sims
finishes a not completely con
elusive solo.
"Barbara's Theme" was nicely
scored by composer Johnny Man
del with semi-Ell ingtonian trumpet and reed voicing around Mulligan who states the counter melody on his baritone. Ferrara's
muted trumpet solo stands the
test of repeated listening, as he
makes good use of varying
rhythmic approaches. Mulligan returns with a short buoyant solo.
The chart sounds a little like a
sound track, but it's nice.
"Theme From 'I Want to Live'
" reminds me of a snake-slow and
lazy with a writhing melodic line.
This also has a baritone lead
which makes for an interesting
sound, but it is too repetitive
rhythmically. Mulligan's sax solo
is dead and Brookmeyer sounds
like a joke although he becomes a
little more inspired when joined
by gowl trumpet riffs. Mulligan is
back in a duet with bassist Clark
which transofmrs into a series of
exchanges. Nice ideas, but no
It is on side two that this volcanic beauty erupts. "Red Door,"
an up tempo number, opens with
Mulligan and Sims in the lead.
Sims then breaks loose with a
hard driving solo, with an extra
drop of blue to fit the mood.
Brookmeyer moves to the piano
bench and plays some nice cool
stuff. A bass solo then emerges at
a fast walk and Mulligan suddenly
attacks with simplicity and honesty • his best solo on the album.
Sims breaks hack in and the two
begin exchanges that evolve into
an incredible exhibit on of contrapuntal simultaneous invention.
"Come Rain or Come Shine" is
a beautiful ballad. The test of a
great jazz musician is his ability to
play a ballad. Zoot seems to relish
the challenge, taking his time,
carefully fitting the melody to hia
personality and to the full background arrangement. Full, bluesy,
touchingly melancholic, Sims
soars into an implied stop time
that sounds like a description of a
smile after the tears are wiped
away. Then Zoot returns to the
original tempo with sprinklings of
the melody and a hint of doubletime, as the mood alternates from
melancholy to happy. What a
statement of that touching melody!
"Apple Core" is an up tempo
vehicle for Sims. As Zoot breaks
loose from the baritone-tenor lead
he launches into his best uptempo
solo on record. His use of spaces
and perfectly placed accents is
pure wizardry and shows he is not
ignorant of the legacy of Charlie
Parker. The stop time device is
used here as Sims plays some
striking figures that breaks up the
audience and as lie launches himself back into tempo he extends
one full throated note that seems
lo be an acknowledgment of the
applause, and then skips around in
a way that would make Lester
Young very happy. A tensely
emotional statement of the theme
leads to a stunning coda that delivers the knock out punch.

Friday that "to his knowledge"
no additional precautions were
being taken, but also noted that
"we have very few security police." In answering -Kelleher he
had stated that the university does
"everything possible" to protect

One reason for the outbreak of
violence in Santa Barbara was the
tension created between administration and students over the
firing of a teacher. The same issue
has developed here along with the
general demand for more direct
student faculty control of the university.
"Why do you have the power
to decide who uses the gym!"
Kaufman cued at the conference.
"Student Power!" was the echo
from another student.
Asked whether he had one reason to expect violence Thursday
night, Dr. O'Reilly stated:
"All I know is what I read in
the newspapers. Mr. Kunstler has
been at places where there have
been demonstrations which sometimes head to violence. As to whether he was responsible for them
or whether they occured by coincedence, there is nothing in the
press to make clear. Certainly,
no one has charged him with inciting the riots and we can't say he
was responsible."

A wall of admirers enclosed William Kunstler last
night after he finished his address to an overflowing
crowd of six thousand students in the Gym. The
defense attorney for the Chicago Eight had just
completed his speech at a rally which also featured
John Froines, one of the "Eight," Guerrilla Theater
performed by members of the New Left Organizing
Committee, and introductory remarks by Norm
Levy of the History Department.
Bill Kunstler addressed a crowd mainly composed
of his people last night; he gave us a glimpse into his
newly-acquired world, and did it with a sincerity
and concern that were the distinguishing feelings of
a night which was markedly devoid of violent
The Defense, led by Kunstler and Len Weinglass,
had to decide upon how they would conduct the
case. They could attempt to merely defeat the
government's case of conspiracy and intent to incite
to riot - which Kunstler called the "easy way out."
Instead, they chose Ihe more important, more
demanding route: " t o educate the jury and the
Kunstler spoke on a variety of issues; he was
interrupted many times by enthusiastic applause. As
he stepped to the rostrum, the cheers and prolonged
applause of the audience all around him, the
Chicago 8 attorney raised his fist in a "Power to the
People" gesture which was immediately repeated
throughout the audience. After the applause died
down, his first words were: "I've said it before and
I'll say it once more: To hear that is worlh every
day of 4 years and 13 days." (a reference to the
period of time Kunstler was sentenced to for
contempt of court in the trial just completed).The
crowd once more avidly clapped its approval.
And so. Ihe defense was conducted on three
levels - They would attempt to show "Number one,
that the government's case was a pack of lies;
Number Iwo. what the life styles of the defendants
and their cultural allies was about; and Number
three, ihe reasons why they came to Chicago in the
first place, " t o bring an end to the Vietnam War
Racism and poverty."
lie attacked Neil Kclleher and his 28 'colleagues'
m the Assembly who attempted to pass a resolution
which aimed al barring Kunstler from speaking at the
University. According to Kunstler "lie was trying to
do. in an ineffectual way, what Daley and the
Chicago cops did— use the power of the slick lo stop
the people." Had he succeeded, intimated Kunstler,
"The Stale University of New York would have
been very sorry tonight."
The defense incorporated hundreds of different
witnesses in this attempt. Tim Leary, Allen Ginsberg, Julian Bond, Jesse Jackson, Richard Goodwin,
even singers Arlo Guthrie and Judy Collins among
others, were part of Ihe defense. "Judge Hoffman
did not allow Judy Collins lo sing 'Where Have All
the Flowers Gone?'-- there was to be no singing, no
laughter no warmth, no embraces, no sign of life in
Julius Hoffmann's court!," said Kunstler.
Kunstler launched into a discussion of the
Trial— its meanings and its ramifications. Il marked,
he fell, the passing of the movermenl ftoni ;i period
of "protest" 11%0's) lo a period which he termed
"one of resistance" (the 1070's). "There are three
stages in a society undergoing a change of
life— protest, resistance, and then rebellion. Wc are
now in the second of these stages."
In a haunting allusion to the repression of (he
early years of Nazi Germany, Kunstler equated the
violence of Chicago (and public and governmental
reaction to il) lo the burning of Ihc Reichstag,
(Germany'sParliament) in 1933.
"Chicago became, to the ruling class of Ihis
country, what the Reichstag fire of 1933 was lo the
leaders of Nazi Germany. Blamed on the "Jews and
the Communists," the Reichstag fire was actually,
according lo Kunstler, set by the Nazis themselves.
"Il was a device used lo unify the nation into the
Third Reich," againsl those who slood in the way of
the goals of the Nazi ruling class.
In Ihe same way, the violence of Michigan and
Balboa Streets "became our Reichstag.
carnage of Augtisl 28, 1968" and Ihe trial which
grew out of il were actually "attempts of the new
ruling class to cripple and destroy those who slood
in Ihe way of a state which destroys and inhibits
free will." The defendants were a representative
Vol. LVII NO. 8
Kunstler: an early act from 1967, aimed at stopping
men like Martin Luther King from travelling to
other states to participate in demonstrations, had to
be reincarnated in order to pass the Civil Rights Act,
which had gained urgency because of the murder of
that same Martin Luther King. And so, this law was
ihe pretext used for the political trial of the
decade. Though R a m s e y Clark, J o h n s o n ' s
Attorney-General, refused to prosecute anyone under the law he firmly felt was "unconstitutional,"
Nixon's administration, believing that "The way to
keep political power is to crush dissent" decided to
go ahead and indict the Eight.
But life could mil be thwarted, even by the
judicial system. The trial's effect went far beyond
the conviction rendered. "Our trial has become a
symbol," said Bill Kunstler. It states, unequivocally,
"This far and no further do we go." The era of
resistance has begun."
sampling of "those who stood in the way."
11 was not by chance thai the specific "Chicago
Eight" were indicted. "They were carefully
chosen," according to Kunstler. "The government
needed a black militant-a Panther- so Bobby Scale,
who had been in Chicago for a total of 16 hours the
entire week of the Convention-was the choice." The
attorney then pointed out the specifications which
Ihe other seven defendants fulfilled-slrcssing (he
fact Ihat they were fil to the charge, not charged for
their actions.
Kunstler then discussed the background of the
"Anti-Riot Act," under whose provisions all eight
defendants were charged with the infamous
'conspiracy.' He indicated thai the bill, discredited
earlier, was reincarnated in 1968 by Strom
Thurmond, among other southern Senators, as the
price for Ihc passage of Ihe Civil Rights Act of 1968.
The irony lliis highlighted was bitterly described by
However, Kunstler fell that the resistance need
not take the form of violent confrontation on
campus (alluding to the problems at Santa Barbara
last week). "Broken windows and red paint on the
Justice Department don't advance much - they
merely give the 'establishment' something to point
to." Kunstler also maintained that campus uprisings
usually the culmination of long feelings of
bitterness, frustration and anger."
And then William Kunstler took up his last attack
on Assemblyman (Ass.) Kellcher. "Maybe he's right,
maybe wc are dangerous," cried Kunstler. "But to
what? The War in Vietnam? To a system of Private
Enterprise which dooms a large segment of our
population to a life of nothing? Values which revere
banks over babies? 1 hope to hell we are!"
Mobbed by a rush of students, Kunstler concluded "If that's what you've shown us, if that's
what we're dangerous to, then, Mr. Kellcher, you've
done us all a favor!"

. We, the members o f MYSKANIA 1 9 7 0 , having served o n e year as
the highest non-academic honorary at S U N Y at Albany, feel a vital
and pressing need for consideration of ourselves and our future as an
organization. Through the course of t h i s year, w e have suffered m u c h
verbal abuse concerning our role in t h e university; our awareness of
the feelings of the s t u d e n t b o d y has caused us t o redefine t h a t role
and t o offer t h e following evaluation a n d r e c o m m e n d a t i o n s .
MYSKANIA is c o m p o s e d of thirteen highly indivualistic people
w h o were elected for their various a n d diversified c o n t r i b u t i o n s t o all
s c o p e s of university life. A natural c o n s e q u e n c e of this wide-spread
p a r t i c i p a t i o n is t h e inability t o m e e t for the p u r p o s e of working as a
group. As a result, the function of MYSKANIA is c o n s t a n t l y in
q u e s t i o n . This, in t u r n , has caused us to question o u r own role,
considering that the past traditions oT this organization may no longer
be relevant to the present university. A further c o n s e q u e n c e is the
lack of respect accorded to MYSKANIA by t h e s t u d e n t body at
We have, therefore, c o m e t o the conclusion t h a t n u m e r o u s changes
are n e e d e d , while maintaining the basic purpose of M Y S K A N I A of
serving as a non-academic h o n o r a r y . Although we have been guardians
of tradition, MYSKANIA needs t o recognize its changing role in a
changing society.
In due consideratin of the evaluation, the following recomm e n d a t i o n s arc hereby m a d e t o Central Council:
1) MYSKANIA shall be a non-academic h o n o r a r y with ceremonial
functions only (e.g. C o n v o c a t i o n , G r a d u a t i o n , T o r c h Night, etc.)
2) It shall be c o m p o s e d of thirteen m e m b e r s h o n o r e d for their
o u t s t a n d i n g c o n t r i b u t i o n s to t h e University, their leadership, ability,
character, reliability, good j u d g m e n t , and initiative.
3) T h e members shall be selected by a screening c o m m i t t e e t o be

-I) MYSKANIA shall no longer concern itself with screening for
5) MYSKANIA shall no longer select freshman class guardians. It

form of a Freshman Advisory Council, possibly consisting of S u m m e r
Planning Conference Assistants, officers of the s o p h o m o r e , j u n i o r and
senior classes, and any other interested people.

T h e University Supreme Court
at a special Wednesday night meeting invalidated the Class of '73
elections. T h e basis for the c o u r t ' s
decision was the fact t h a t the
election machine for Class of '73
officers was " j a m m e d with paper
upon which were names of writein c a n d i d a t e s . " T h e court, in its
unanimous ruling, declared t h a t
Election Commissioner J e a n e t t e
Beckerman was "within legal jurisd i c t i o n " to invalidate the election.
In the Commissioner's own
words: " U p o n investigation, I
found that there were papers
stuffed in the spaces for write-ins
for President and Vice-President.
On these papers were written " J a y
Glasser" and "Alan Pallat."
A further complication arose to
augment B e c k e r m a n ' s problems.

Three Ring Circus
We w o n d e r if Barnuni and Bailey staged this
w e e k ' s class officer elections since il a m o u n t e d to
little but a three ring circus with each class vying for
main a t t r a c t i o n status.
Let's begin with the s o p h o m o r e class (we'll save
Ihe best for lasl). T h e present class of ' 7 2 placed an
ad in the F e b r u a r y 27 ASP and paid lor it with class
m o n e y . S u p p o s e d l y the ad reminded s t u d e n t s a b o u t
the o p e n class council meeting; large
bold print at Ihe lop ol' Ihe ad were w r i t t e n the
names ol Ihe lour class officers. T h e y justify this
irresponsible spending of class funds by saying that
C a m p u s Clipboard carries a notice of the class
council meeting every week. Lei us add that the
ASI' does not carry a paid advertisement of the
meeting every week nor does clipboard list the
names of the class of '72 officers.
Let's move on the second ring of our three ring
menagerie: the class of ' 7 1 . T h e ASP carried a small
mil tee in h consecutive issues reminding the class of
'71 " t h a t il has been Iradilkmal that there be no
c a m p a i g n i n g . " O n e slale of candidates h l a l a n l l y
broke this tradition by not only placing a large ad in
Ihe ASP (by the w a y , what are y o u c o n c e r n e d
a b o u t ? ) , but also placing their g r o u p picture above
it. T h e i n c u m b e n t s placed a game called " u p with
the posters, d o w n wilh the p o s t e r s , " as if toying
with Ihe morality of the issue.
N o w for the class of '7.1. Il seems t o us that the
tapering of a write-in c a n d i d a t e ' s name in the voting
b o o t h could only he a p r e m e d i t a t e d action. Flection
Commission had every right to r e c o m m e n d Ihe
invalidation of an election which appeared to be
deliberately bollixed u p .
After analyzing ibis campaign one fact b e c o m e s
evident-few, if any, of the nominees deserve the
office they were seeking.

Perhaps il is nol Kunstler who
is sick , however. Perhaps Ihe sick
ones are Ihe p e o p l e who hied lo
slop him from coming and Ihe
people who h i e d lo bring him
hurt1 any way I hey could.
There are
points to hrillg out about Ihe
proceedings Ilia I went on the
week before Kunsller came. T h e
various a t t e m p t s made lo slop or
lo insure Kunstler's visit were
perhaps, more u n d e m o c r a t i c than
Kunstler's most radical Ihouuhls.

Would there have been an att e m p t e d t a k e o v e r of the uym if
Ihe players h a d n ' t yielded?
Kven t h o u g h the basketball
players were in the minority they
had a right to Ihe uym. This
should have been realized, since
lhere are dangerous implications
made Monday a f t e r n o o n a bo til
Ihe majority d o m i n a t i n g the minority. After all, w e r e n ' t tho very
s t u d e n t s that w a n t e d to seize the
gym the ones w h o always protest
for m i n o r i t y rights. A n o t h e r interesting and d a n g e r o u s d o u b l e standard has a p p e a r e d .
T h e most dangerous of all is yet
to c o m e , however. It. deals with
s t u d e n t power. T h e conflict here
was truly b e t w e e n student groups,
not with certain athletic officials
as s o m e may c o n t e n d .
T h e conflict was sell led by
s t u d e n t groups in a m a t t e r of
several hours. If Ihe riuhl people
( s t u d e n t s ) had been c o n t a c t e d
firsl it may have even been settled
s o o n e r . If an administrative fiat
would s t u d e n t s bo in? What would
have h a p p e n e d to our so-called
s t u d e n t power m o v e m e n t ? Aren't
t h e very people who asked for an
a d m i n i s t r a t i v e fiat the same people t h a t have been tolling the
a d m i n i s t r a t i o n to bug out of our
affairs. An e x t r e m e l y dangerous
d o u b l e s t a n d a r d can be seen here.
It could have o p e n e d Ihe door for
m o r e administrative power over
s t u d e n t s when we as s t u d e n t s
want m o r e s t u d e n t power.
Il seems in these three cases the
parties have chosen t o follow t h e
law or a set of rules when it fits
t h e m and lo disobey these principles when they d o n ' t like them.
Yet, is this only characteristic of a
few people or can it be seen
consistently t h r o u g h o u t our society?
Dear E d i t o r :
Last w e e k , while on a visit t o
the C a m p u s , I n o t e d with interest
a n u m b e r of s t u d e n t s wearing
PYE ( P r o t e c t Your E n v i r o n m e n t )
b u t t o n s . T h i s is great! I am certainly pleased to observe this visible c o m m i t m e n t by s t u d e n t s at
S U N Y A t o the p r o b l e m s of pollution, clean air, a n d related environmental m a t t e r s . I also observed, while in t h e C a m p u s Center, the seemingly inconsistent
bahavior on the p a r t of m a n y
s t u d e n t s wearing P Y E b u t t o n s .
Care for t h e e n v i r o n m e n t is evid e n t l y " s o m e o n e else's p r o b l e m . "
T h e air was thick with s m o k e .
T h e r e was miscellaneous trash
( u n e a t e n food, half e m p t y cardboard c o n t a i n e r s , a p p l e cores a n d
related junk for sanitary land fills)
strewn on the floor and left on
t h e tables, despite t h e ready availability of trash cans.
II is well-known that s t u d e n t s
have, in recent years, u n d e r s c o r e d
the " h y p o c r i s y " of t h e s o c i e t y ,
when describing America's social
s y s t e m . Perhaps, it isn't l o o m u c h
to h o p e t h a t in the s u p p o r t of t h e
PYE progranv-whieh seems to indicate a change in emphasis in
s t u d e n t a c t i o n from
groups t o a clean envtronment--we
may observe consistent,
nonhypocritical behavior by s t u d e n t s .
Very truly y o u r s ,

To the E d i t o r s :
Re: Picture front page of the

I n o t e t h e c a p t i o n under t h e

t h e services

control seems l o he w a r r a n t e d o n
o u r own c a m p u s as indicated by
the ' m y s t e r i o u s vapors' rising
from the Services Building."
This "pictorial e v i d e n c e " in
reality is n o t evidence of p o l l u t a n t
" v a p o r s " arising from said building. It however, from o t h e r evidences in the same p i c t u r e , indicates a relatively cool t e m p e r a lure. I n d e e d , cool e n o u g h t o

same m a n n e r thai water vapor

of t h e c l o u d is indicative of t h e

It is t r u e , however, t h a t w a t e r

To the students:
A S P ( F e b . 2 4 ) has b r o u g h t t o light
t h e reasons w h y Albany S t a t e
University d o e s n ' t offer sports
s c h o l a r s h i p s a n d is therefore playing college division s p o r t s . This
article explains what m u s t be
d o n e in o r d e r t o i m p r o v e our
a t h l e t i c s t a n d i n g in intercollegiate
s p o r t s . T h e r e are three main
s o u r c e s for scholarship m o n e y ;
t h e s t a t e or university itself, t h e
a l u m n i , a n d t h e s t u d e n t s a n d interested groups.
T h e state at this time d o e s n ' t
offer a n y scholarships for s p o r t s .
Most of t h e b u d g e t m o n e y is tied
up in e x p a n d i n g a y o u n g g r o w i n g
university or helping the n e e d y .
T h i s is the t o p priority as it
should be. Hopefully after t h e
dust settles a n d the university
m a t u r e s funds can be set aside for
intercollegiate s p o r t s .
T h e second alternative is for
the a l u m n i t o help o u t . Until
recently Albany was only a teachers college with a m i n i m u m of
g r a d u a t e s each year. In recent
years this has c h a n g e d ; Albany is
now a university graduating app r o x i m a t e l y 3 0 0 0 each year going
into all walks of life.
T h e third r o u t e is t o the current s t u d e n t s themselves, the ones
w h o have the m o s t t o gain. If
t h e y ' r e i n t e r e s t e d , part of t h e
s t u d e n t tax could be used t o w a r d s
scholarships. Many will n o t agree
to this b u t t h e issue can be
d e c i d e d by a s i m p l e election. If
this proves unsatisfactory t h e n t h e
s t u d e n t s w h o m a k e use of t h e
t e a m by w a t c h i n g them play
might w a n t t o c o n t r i b u t e t o improving the t e a m .

Council to Undergo
Power Separation
PYE Discusses
by Lesley Weinblatt
At last Sunday's special meeting of Central Council on the Student Association Constitution,
Council passed a motion that rescinded action it had previously
passed at last Thursday's meeting.
Lenny Kopp brought up the motion that struck down Mike Lampert's amendments to the constitution that provide for two semester's experience on Central Council in order to run for Student Association President.
Kopp claimed that Lamperts
amendments were not in keeping
with the progressive spirit with
which the constitution is trying to
deal. Carol Tibbets argued against,
the move saying that prospective
candidates would have no conception of the immensity of the
job of the presidency, unless they
had had some council experience.
Ken Stokem and Lenny Kopp
pointed out that the qualifications
would limit the filed of probable,
possible candidates for President
and Vice-President to something
less than 10. Kopp further argued
that you can't have n representative government without a representative president.
Chuck Ribak argued against
this saying that the school is n dictatorship anyhow. Dick Wesley
supported Kopp pointing out the
dangers of a credibility gap. Kopp
made the final comment before
the vote saying that the students
must be given the right to express
Kopp moved for a roll call vote,
the result of which was I I -l-'l.
Following Kopp's motion's success, Ralph DiMarino made an
amendment that called for tho

president to be elected by a majority rather than a plurality vote,
removed the president's position
as presiding officer of Central
Council, made the vice-president
elected by a 2/3's vote of Council
rather than a plurality vote of the
Student Association, and made
the V-P preciding officer of Central Council.
Lenny Kopp immediately attacked this as "...still trying to
stick to the past with an elitist
government." Di Marino said that
this was just a step towards further separation of powers in Student Association. This opened up
a whole new concept in the area
of the Constitution dealing with
the officers and their powers and
separation of powers between
Central Council and an executive.
To facilitate freer discussion on
this new concept Council moved
to a commitlee of the whole.
As a committee Council attempted for Lhe rest of the meeting to work out a viable, working
method of separating powers.
General consensus was I hat there
would be a separation between a
president and vice-president at
Student Association and chairman
of Central Council.
It was undecided at this time
how and what powers would be
divided and added except that the
president would probably live veto power over Central Council
bills with a 2/.Vs vote of Council
overriding that veto.
Previous U- adjournment Council formed a committee to be
headed by Vie Looper and Lenny
Kopp to look into formulation of
the separation of powers further.

Proposed Changes
in Parking Policy
by David Pock
"Whereas, lhe present parking
policy of SUNYA
first against students and stilt fur
titer against resident students he it
rcsolred that the Senate repeal the
preferential parking policy. "
Steven Villano has introduced
the above bill in order to make
residence hall living more like
apartment house living. He thinks
that since resident students arc
paying approximately $600 per
semester for room and board,
they are therefore entitled to decent parking facilities rather than
commuters, and the rest for residents. Students from Alumni
Quad who drive to school are
viewed as residents and also have

the "back of the lot" facilities
they now have.
The preferential parking policy
now in use sets aside the first few
rows for faculty, the next few for
to park in the back. In place of
this, the hill would institute a
parking policy of a first-come,
first-served nature, except for the
first two rows which would be reserved for those with a special
medical parking permit.
Many residents use their cars to
drive to work or for student
teaching. Villano does not believe
that they will all park in front of
the lot as opponents of the bill
state. He also points out that commuters don't pay $600 for room
and board. Villano doesn't own a

The diverse topics of sterilization and this weekend's pre•teach-in conference were the subjects of the Wednesday night PYE
The meeting began with a discussion on sterilization and featured two guest speakers. The
first, Ken Lucowiak, a graduate
itudent in Biology, approached
the subject from a physiological
standpoint. He traced the concept
of sterilization to its inception in
the late 1800's. At that time, it
was used mainly as a vehicle for
publicizing the philosophy of Eugenics, the development of a purer
race throug compulsory sterilization of the lower classes.
Lucowiak added that population
control wasn't taken into account
at the time. He went on to give a
detailed explanation of the actual
biological process involved in sterilization.
Following the lecture by
Lucowiak, Dr. Richard Brown of
the Physics Department addressed

The following two articles should be taken as a warning by students in the University community.
Caution and precaution should be everyone's guidelines for the campus drug scene. Dr. Thome has
continually reiterated the policy that the University is not a "refuge for lawbreakers." The most
important fact to remember is that under current university policy, R.A. 's are required to act as
policemen. As far as drugs are concerned.they are not advisors to be taken into the student's confidence.
Until this is corrected, it is the student's best interest not to discuss drugs with his resident assistant. One
should never, in any circumstance, show drugs to his R.A. Resident Assistants have no choice but to act
as policemen when given the option.
State Quad
Campus security, backed up by
state police, swooped into
Anthony hall on State Quad late
Wednesday night and arrested two
students on a variety of drug
charges. Between $2,000 and
$5,000 worth of drugs and equipment were seized.
State police were called into
campus at the request of campus
security, following consultations
between the security office, dorm
directors, and Miss Norma Edsell,
Director of Residences. She notified Dr. Thorne of the action.
Presumably, he played a role in
the decision.
Quantities of marijuana, hashhish, LSD, mescaline, and opium
along with a variety of pipes,
scales, and cutting instruments
were confiscated. It was believed
to be the largest haul of drugs,
narcotics, and refining equipment
ever found on campus.
The arrests came after the dorm
director became convinced that at
least two students "were possibly
involved with drugs." He refused
to comment on how he reached
that conclusion, but it is believed
that one of the resident assistants
who was very friendly with at
least one of the students, went to
his room and told him to "cool
it" as far as drugs were concerned.
The student apparently "cooled
it" a little too much. He spread
marijuana, LSD, and an assortment of other illegalities in front
of the R.A. to show proof he
would stay "clean."
Unfortunately, for the student,
the R.A. had no choice (under
existing University drug policy)
but to inform the dorm director.
The dorm director called Lt.
Henighan in Security for consultation on legal procedure.
Two directors then visited the
students' rooms and asked the
two to go through their belongings. The choice was theirs and
they agreed. The drugs were
found by the directors who notified Lt. Henighan.

Students attending the President's news conference were expecting
President Kuusisto to make public the recommendations made by
Dean Perlmutter concerning the renewal of appointment for Gerald
Wagner. The students involved in the Student Power controversy were
promised they would be informed of Perlmutter's decision today.
