the black student implicated in
the striking of a food service
supervisor at the same quail Sunday afternoon. This, is a a civil
action being handled in the
Albany courts independent of the
University community.
However officials in the E.O.P.
program have been pressuring the
supervisor to drop the charges and
let the University handle the incident. As of late last night, it
appeared almost certain that she
would not consent to this. E.O.P.
posted the $100 bail needed to
free the student.
Meanwhile, a group of black
students met yesterday morning
with President Kuusisto, who had
just returned from a meeting in
Pennsylvania. The students demanded that all charges be dropped and the supervisor involved be
dismissed. The president was given
a three hour deadline which expired at 1:00pm yesterday afternoon. It can be assumed that Van
Dyck's statement last night was at
least an unofficial reply to the
demands. His statement went on
to say that the charges arising out
of Sunday's incident arc "an individual and not a university matter "
The two demands were also presented to Peter Haley, an assistant
food service director. He rejected
them, also claiming that his office
had no control over charges
brought by a private citizen pending in a civil court. He also said
the supervisor would not be fired.
Late last night, Central Council
institued a "Multi-racial student
committee" to investigate campus
racial incidents and attitudes. The
bill was sponsored by Bert Eversley.
The following are the events
which led up to yesterday's actions:

get their meals.

"nonf u n c t i o n i n g " of t h a t institution.
He cited t h e seniority s y s t e m as
t h e p r i m a r y r o a d b l o c k t o initiating necessary change t h r o u g h the
legislative process. T h e seniority
system and the c o m m i t t e e s y s t e m ,
w h o s e vested interests seniority is
p r o t e c t i n g , have b e c o m e so "ossified,"
according to L o w e n s t e i n ,
t h a t it is impossible to get hearings o n m a n y issues, including t h e
draft. He also called for investigation of "conflicts of i n t e r e s t "
which influence Congressional decisions.
T h e Congressman said t h e " b a s i c

Lowenstein accused t h e Nixon
" l i b e r a l " vocabulary to deceive
the people into believing t h a t h e

noticeable in the A d m i n i s t r a t i o n ' s
program of t r o o p withdrawal.
Nixon was said t o be " o v e r t a k i n g
L y n d o n J o h n s o n in i n c r e d i b i l i t y . "
T h e basic t h e m e of the speech
was that there m u s t be a grassr o o t s m o v e m e n t wherein people
are availed of the facts. He dismissed t h e i m p o r t a n c e of party
labels and urged s u p p o r t for Congressmen w h o will speak
against the war and military appropriations.

never survived the decade, while
the true jazz artists, scorned at the
time, are still being listened t o
t o d a y . What is m o r e i m p o r t a n t is
that while t h e Black man was
making the only music that could
be considered American c u l t u r e ,
the Whites c o n t i n u e d to think of
Blacks as primitive, and his music
as vile a n d artless.
The main p r o b l e m , musically
speaking, was self evident. The
musicians trying to " p u r i f y " jazz
perceived jazz through academic
glasses. Aaron Copeland w r o t e ,
"What interested composers...was
not so much t h e spirit, whatever it
symbolized, as tho m o r e technical
sides of jazz t h e r h y t h m , m e l o d y ,
h a r m o n y , t i m b r e through which
that spirit was e x p r e s s e d . "
It seemed t h a t the new converts
to " j a z z " in the academic music
field failed to understand t h a t jazz
is basically a Black art from.
Concert pianist Percy Grainger
felt t h a t jazz, "...is w h a t o n e
would e x p e c t from a solid, pros
p e r o u s Nordic

York Times
c o n c l u d e d that refined jazz " a r r a n g e d and played

much a b o u t it of interest and even
of value, a n d all u n i t e in cond e m n i n g the i n e x p e r t and over
of the
p e a c e . " Sort of like Spiro Agnew
telling us w h a t t h e Negro really
w a n t s . These distrubers of the
peace were the true jazz men,
most of t h e m Black, and much of
their music has lasted. It is indeed
ironic t h a t t h e New York
fell t h a t p e o p l e knowing very
little a b o u t jazz could perfrom it
b e t t e r than t h o s e w h o lived in its
musical w o r l d .
It is interesting t o n o t e that at
this t i m e Louis A r m s t r o n g was
being praised by English critics,
t h e first jazz critics and jazz periodicals were b e c o m i n g popular in
E u r o p e . But the land w h e r e jazz
was born c o n t i n u e d to scorn it.

Myths And Legends Of The

Since t h e virtual birth of jazz
through the efforts of a group of a
small group of s o u t h e r n Black
musicians, the White society, led
by the "classical" musci establishment, has a t t e m p t e d t o , at various
times, m u r d e r , ignore, supress,

In the beginning of t h e twentieth c e n t r u y jazz began to develop
and its a n i m o s i t i e s grew along side
of it. A New York physician, Dr.

provoke man's "Lower nature;"
the Catholic Telegraph of Cincinnati spoke of jazz as " s e n s u o u s "

minister of Rochester, carefully
explained that jazz has caused
"spiritual a n e m i a . " There was
even a play railed " T h e National

Violence on Colonial Quad
Continued from page 1
cut into the serving line. Several
trays were overturned. The dinner
line was closed. There was "a lot
of movement" in the dining room,
but between the entrance of sever*
al security guards and the urging
of a black male student, the group
was quieted.
The blacks left the dining area
and congregated in the flag room
on State Quad. Rumors that a
group would proceed to the Campus Center Snack Bar at 11:0O pm
were never realized. No further
damage was reported after the flag
room incident.
Later on Wednesday night a
group of black students congregated outside Clinton Hall on Colonial Quad. Students in the Alpha
Pi Alpha section were told by an
RA to stay in their rooms. Blacks
ented the APA lounge area and
asked students to come out, "because all they wanted to do was
rap and get things out in the
open." Upon meeting no response, the black students left.
Peter Haley said that the tentative date for reopening Colonial
Quad's dining facilities is Saturday. Haley also said that no one
in FSA on Colonial Quad had quit
his job, contrary to many rumors
"Sunday's Incidents"
Sunday's outbreak began when a
black female .student accompan-
ied by her sister and brother
-in-law approached the Colonial
Quad food line. The student had a
meal card but her two guests, here
for the Black Cultural Weekend,
did not Nor did they have special
"guest passes" which food service
provided for the additional black
students on campus. The puss
entitled them to eat at a reduced
The guests were informed of the
plan in effect but refused to pay
and, with the student, proceeded
through the dinner line. The
checker summoned the quad food
supervisor who also explained
that the guests could not eat
without paying. The female student replied that her guests would
eat "and there is nothing you (the
supervisor) can do about it."
At this point, the supervisor
confiscated the meal card in accordance with procedure specified
in back of the contract cards. {It
was returned Monday.) Then the
scu f fling began, the student
punching and slapping the supervisor. Apparently, her blouse was
puller over her face, so the supervisor could not identify who did
the punching, although she is certain more thun one person was
involved. He hair was also pulled
while whe was being punched.
A female resident assistant also
came to help, and it is alleged that
two black males assaulted her.
Blacks deny this, though marks
are visible on the side of her face

drop the course. Therefore there would be no

Dear Sunya Sardine:
Right on! But, Mr. Sardine
don't say you can't live offcampus when its simply a case of
you don't want to.
I am an off-campus student, living within walking distance of the
University bus line (12 min.) and
my heart bleeds for you.
I do not have money to burn,
far from it, but the difference in
price between University housing
and my share of apartment expenses (2 people) is grent enough

Those were the events up until
the early hours of Friday morning. There were no incidents
Thursday night, though the
campus remains somewhat tense
and further action cannot be ruled
out at the point.

at the two operating uptown
quads, this was in response to a
request by food service for protection for workers and students

Haley pledged that further incidents at any uptown quad would
be a cause for food service personnel to go on an immediate walkout which would completely close
down all Food Service operations.

Tuesday before last, the issue
never was assistantships. King
Krosby gave a long speech on the
failure of the Administration to
grunt new faculty lines to (hire

To those who thought lines were
the issue, you were wrong. The
faculty care more about GA's
than they do about better education, which in this case means
more faculty.
The buld tactic of using students as pawns has worked, and
we can count on being used again.
Whenever the faculty can "strike"
by putting the screws on the undergraduates, they will.
But they will find out, as Perry
Silverman said in last Tuesday's
ASP, "individual pride will deter a
person from continuing to work
with those who have trodden
upon him." In a few years, the department will find that their former undergraduates will not do
their dirty work.
We need more faculty in the
History department, and the time
to demand them is now. The faculty is quite satisfied with the
RA's they have been given, but
the history students will never be.
In peace,

A Real Jew
Dear Mr. Shaw,
It is true that we Jews have a
rich and beautiful heritage, and I
fully sympathize with your concern over its decline in Modern
America. But along with our edu-
cation ethic, our hospitality ethic
and our beautiful ceremonies and
holidays, is something we can do
well without - our paranoia.
At any time up to our generation "paranoia" would not be the
word. We have been persecuted
for centuries. Some kids are still
brought up in fear of competition
with the N.Y.C. Jews. But this
generation, particularly our Gentile brothers and sisters in the University community, are not buy*
Sure, the stereotypes aren't
gone. They will only be obliterated when those people who hold
them in their heads interact with
Jews • Jews who don't consider
themselves outsiders and so don't
act as outsiders. For anti-Semitism
is often in the eye of the beholder. We can never live up to
the ideals of our Torah by hiding
behind the Star of David.
Yours in peace

Helping Kids
Dear Students,
After hearing all the gripes of
students one group decided that it
was time for the University to get
involved in the community. The
organization was set up; and was
decided that on weekends children from Albany's South End
would be brought on campus and
shown "a plain, good time," no
altruistic motives just a good time.
A meeting was called in November
and the turn-out was wonderful.
The first activity was set up and
only i 1 students were to be used,
the remaining students were told
that there was plenty of activities
to come.
The committee planned activities and at the last meeting only
1 1 students show up. Prior to this
we mimeod 800 leaflets and 10
poster which were handed out
around campus, Often it is said
that students today want a worthwhile activity to expend there
efforts in.
The KIDS committee has presented some and it's time for the
students to act. (The next activity
is April 25 if enough people showed up). Although the 11 students
who came were truly interested,
the projects need many more of
you, the student body.

Cure Implies Maturity
There are some that envision the passage of the CURE proposal as
creating more problems than will be solved.
Any type of freedom creates certain responsibilities. But somehow it
must be possible for education to proceed as students define their
own needs. This means that faculty and administration will no longer
be able to implement arbitrary advice and advisement will become
more important.
Students will no longer be able to rationalize poor performance with
the complaint that a particular course had no appeal to him and he
was "only fulfilling a requirement."
Administrators must show the maturity to trust students to take
care of themselves. Administrators can make a large contribution to
the educational community if they learn when to step back when they
are no longer needed. Individual maturity from all of us is not too
great a price to pay for education.
With the implementation of the liquor policy and 24-hour open
houses, students were allowed to control their own bodies. The CURE
proposal can free our minds, and maybe some day our spirit will be
liberated, too.
At first there may be some mechanical difficulties. Enrollment in
required courses may drop, and attract fewer, but more interested
students. This is legitimate and unavoidable. Professors will waste less
of themselves, where they are not appreciated. Resources may need to
be shifted but this is not a real problem, and simply requires some
administrative implementation.
The end of requirements will not affect the "well-rounded" student.
The "well-rounded" student is a myth. Learning tools rather than a
mass of knowledge should be the end of undergraduate education.
Required courses do little to sharpen learning skills; unless one accepts
cramming as a life-style.
The CURE proposal will not cure all problems of the university, but
it is an useful beginning.
Bob Rosenblum—
I just finished reading your article Jazz in the ASP and I agree
with you all the way. For the last
two years, I have enjoyed the jazz
festival as a welcome relief from
the c o n s t a n t rock concerts
SUNYA always comes up with.
Personally, I enjoy jazz but, in
general, I agree with you that the
festival gave a chance for a cultural education in music. And,
really, after Greek Weekend, there
is no need to have more rock
groups right now.
There is much in right-now jazz
that could really turn on a lot of
people. Although the concerts
were never packed, they were
never empty; and I feel that more
and more young people are becoming aware. Also, I hardly
think that the fact that half of the
people at the concerts were adults
is something to frown at. At last
year's concerts (especially Elvin
Jones and Olatungi) many black
people from the area were in

yesterday's love children were no more affected by

A failure for the radical NLOC? Many will rejoice
at this idea as I thought 1 would.
After watching the Moratorium Day events on Ihe

is a failure that belongs to till of us.
The left appears to want the same lliings we have
all been hitching about for years: an end to Ihe war,
an end to racism, and end to pollution for Ihe sake
of profit, and end to political Irials and political!ties, etc.
The New Left lias reviewed these problems as
unseparable while we've viewed I bent as separate
entities and established a system of priorities that
keeps Blacks waiting while we courageously end the

I question some of the ways in which we've
attacked today's radicals. Sure SDS had problems
with ego-trips and fragmentation just as all groups
Passing Over
have- If they were nol in some way screwed up by
society why would they be revolutionaries'.' The
greatest objection to radicals is their frequent
advocation of violence. It's becoming increasingly
difficult to say "why don't you he a nice guy and
listen," lo the p<rpetuators of genocide, the imprisoncrs whose pollution is certain to kill us all if
radical priorities aren't met. This is a violent soeiely
and always lias been. Perhaps Ihe radicals are simply
being realistic.
I think my animosity to radicals litis been based
largely on my own fears. Do I really believe that
violence shouldn't lie used against the police who
conspired lo tleslory protesters in Chicago and a
nation whose newest CIA sponsored leader (Cambodia) is carrying on a reign of genocide only
surpassed by our own in Vietnam.' Probably I've
just been seared shit of gelling my own bead busted
so 1 call myself non-violent. The radical movement
also called for a total commitment that may force
me to kick over tile secure nest I've been eagerly
building for myself.
So who has failed'.' We've hail our weekends in
Washington and our candle lit marches. We've slootl
by while a small number from our mass resisted for
us and wenl to jail. By and large we've respected the
appeals of our liberal politician friends and haven't
broken any laws.
The war still goes on growing. Our air gets worse
every tlay. Insecticides are constantly being outlawed for certain uses but not for sale; so profits are
still booming, lienocide is still the norm, and Blacks
slid Ihe politicians toy. We've hail a great time doing
our three or four time a year peace thing.
I think it's time to search inside ourselves and take
a new look al the "New Left."

A Woodstock Sermon on the Mount.
by J. Stephen Flavin and Carol Hughes
Replete with the heavy sounds
of improvised pagan beats syncopated by sporatic human wailings
of contemporary injustice, Skidmore College sponsored Abbie
Hoffman in a Woodstock Sermon
on the Mount beneath the celestial light. Abbie Hoffman became prosecutor for "the people."
The establishment's Pontius
Pilate, Judge Julius Hoffman "a
Geritol freak" was verbally crucified before 3,000 jurors gathered
to pass judgement on the society
of their parents. In most courts it
is possible to obtain delays or
postponement of trial but "Judge
Hoffman said, 'I am old, we gotta
hurry!' Motion denied, denied,
denied, died, killed, buried!'"
i"We started out to give Julie a
heart attack, we gave the court
system one too!"
Nearly 200 years ago, some
"long haired cats fought here in
Saratoga to be free. Free means
you don't have to pay. The only
place you could be free in high
school was in the toilets. They
aren't even free anymore, 10
cents a quarter in some places
• that's capitalist progress!"
Hoffman frequently recalled
"Americans with a V not with a
'k' like in Washington;" historical
figures who represented the true
view of freedom. Washington,
Jefferson (who advocated revolution every 10 years), Franklin and
Lincoln are the ancestors of today's revolutionaries and ironically their pictures hung behind
Judge Hoffman throughout the
conspiracy trial. Paul Revere was
specifically referred to as representative of the same revolutionary fervor that was displayed
by Bostonians in Harvard Square
on Wednesday.
" On the eighteenth of April in
'75..." Paul Revere, standing on
the banks of the Charles, looked
across at the "biggest strobe light"
coming from North Church. At
the signal he jumped on his
motorcycle and rode through the
streets yelling "The pigs are
coming, the pigs are coming!'
Freedom as a real value is best
understood by the young revolutionaries each working to overthrow the repressive yoke of
Do you know why there's a
shortage of grass? "There's a man
in the Injustice Department--Herr

planes to make war on a plant."

" W o o d s t o c k , they said it
couldn't be done. *.fler it was
done Rockefeller declared it a
disaster area. We hope it was—a
disaster for you!"
This system and its creator, the
Protestant Work Ethic " has to go
down the drain. Work is a dirty
word. We will build a system
where we integrate work and play.
When this system is ripped down
we'll put Heaven in its place.

the pigs!
'Violence has to be redefined.

Luther King was assassinated and

"'We're outlaws in the eyes of
America" he asserted. "You're an
outlaw- act like it!" American
youth knows how to break the
system. "We're their kids!"
" Love it or leave it they say. We
left it!" American politics must be
fought out in the streets, not the
courts not the voting booth.
Even though the 'flower children' believe in love, there is a need
for a redefinition of violence.
Capitalism is violent." The system is based on violence. "Anything done to destroy that system
is done in love."
"To love we have to survive. To
survive we have to fight."
"The streets are the only court
we have left in this country."
Justice must be redefined, as violence must be. "The law and
courts ain't got a fuckin' thing to
do with justice."
This was a nation born and
baptized in revolution. "This
nation is responsible for war and
pollution. They want to give us
haircuts. Unless we stick together
we'll have our hair cut together.
Barbershop poles are red, white,
and blue-why? Think about it!"
They can call us anything, anything as long as we know we are
young we are proud, and we stick
together "
Does it hurt
to chill beer twice?
Not that you'd want to. Sometimes it just happens . . . like
after a picnic, or when you
bring home a couple of cold
6-paks and forget to put 'em
in the refrigerator. Does rechilling goof up the taste or
flatten the flavor?
Relax. You don't have
to worry.
A really
good beer like
Budweiser is just
as good when you chill it
twice. We're mighty glad about
that. We'd hate to think of all
our effort going down the drain
just because the temperature
has its ups and downs.
You can understand why
when you consider all the extra
trouble and extra expense that
go into brewing Bud®. For instance, Budweiser is the only
beer in America that's Beechwood Aged.
So . .. it's absolutely okay
to chill beer twice.
Enough said. (Of
course, we have
a lot more to say
about Budweiser. But we'll
keep it on ice for now.)
Budweiser is the King of Beers.
