FROZEN. ' Those words, in a
memorandum from SA Prcsiden
Dave Neufeld to all Student Association groups last Thursday,
signalled the latest—and most dramatic— outcome of a nearly yearlong controversy over the use of
mandatory tax fees.
After months of debate over
the propriety of the use of tax
money for supposedly "partisan
groups," Ken Stringer, a senior
here, initiated a Civil Court case
against the University and Student
Association in an attempt to
either eliminate the mandatory
tax or to get specific guidelines
prescribing expenditures. The recent budget freeze comes as a
result of that court case, via a
decision handed down by Justice
Harold Koreman of the New York
Stale Supreme Court last Thursday.
As a result of that decision, all
SA groups have been prohibited
from spending any money which
derives from mandatory tax until,
in the words of Koreman's decision, they receive the "determination and approval of the trustees as to whether they are educational, cultural, recreational or
social in nature."
In effect, what this does is
revoke the authority which SA
has enjoyed in dealing with the
funds collected from mandatory
tax. Koreman's decision was based
on the fact that, since the Board
of Trustees had actually become
the enforcing agency for collection of the tax, it still retained
responsibility for the use of the
funds. "In view of the requirement for payment of the activities
fee before a student may be registered, and that fact that grades
and transcripts may be withheld
lor failure to pay,the TRUSTEES
have effectively established a mandatory activities fee." (Emphasis
"In the court's opinion, it cannot be said," Koreman's decision
goes on, "that the officials of the
University have no voice or control over appropriations or expenditures of the fund (Note: this
point may have been made by the
defense, in staling that SA had
always been autonomous in dealing with funds) since appropriations may be made by the students only for the purposes permitted by the Trustees" (i.e. educational, social, cultural, and recreational concerns). In his conclusion, Koreman states that
"since the responsibility of administration and supervision in this
area rests with the Trustees, appropriations or expenditures may
not be made without the approval
of the Trustees as to the purpose
for such appropriations and expenditures."
The entire question of who
shall control the disbursement of
student funds is an extremely
touchy one. By revoking SA's
autonomy, the court decision may
have opened the doors to censorship and regulation of necessarily
independent student organizations. It is mainly for this reason
that Student Association is going
to appeal the decision, and it is
for this reason that the case is
being followed with great interest
across the state.
An appeal will be entered as
soon as is possible by SA's lawyers; the court to which the appeal now goes is the N.Y. State
Appeals Court, the highest state
court. No action can be taken,
however, until Justice Koreman
releases his "judgement," a document which instructs all parties as
to the final effects of the decision.
The judgement should be coming
out some time this week.
In the interim, a meeting of the
SUNY Board of Trustees is
scheduled for tomorrow in New
York City. It is expected that a
t e m p o r a r y solution will be
worked out there which will at
least enable the SA groups currently cut off from funds to
function once more. However, a
long range solution must be arrived at, so the courts have not
seen the last of "Kenneth Stringer
vs. Gould, et al."

Central Council Thursday night
called for the establishment of u
WeHinti review board. Such a body
could play a major role in deter-
mining security's future priorities
and establishing needed rapport
with the student body.
But security faces immediate
problems which will not be ho«ttlied soon,
A major area of concern is the
shortage of manpower. There are
currently less patrolmen on the
force than at this time last year.
Meanwhile, trends indicate a substantial increase in piawtmrrci (as
opposed to property) crimes. This
would include the areas of robbery, assault, and sex offenses.
And, qualified applicants to the
security force cannot be found, a
result of the low pay offered.
An expected legislative appropriation has become bogged down
and will not be forthcoming for a
number of months.

A prospective director of the

euro center, the president of the later interview Soth Spollman,
Assistant to the President, mentioned that plans are "moving o n "
concerning the renovation of P
ierce Hall on the downtown campus; however, no dale has been set
for the opening of tlie center.
The day care center would be
limited to serving the children of
SUNYA students and students'
wives, and fees will be churged on
a sliding scule to be established by
the office of Financial Aid. "Any
students able to pay will be expected to do so." According to
Spellman, the center will be ableto
accommodate 46 children from
the money now available.
Although some angered students denied it, the President assured them that the information
in this memo hud been available
to the leaders of the Women's
Liberation Front on Tuesday.
President Benezet commented
that the group had "asked for
nothing unreasonable" und that
he felt "assured that the project
will succeed and could become a
model of Child Day Care Centers
in universities."

Stringer vs Gould
by Keith Morrison
This fall semester at
Albany State marks the start
of an ambitious new community service for credit program
whose impact on the scope of
university education and the
tenor of university-community
could prove to
bs tremendous.
Under the new program students will receive from one to
four credits per semester for
volunteer work inthe community
and up to fifteen credits a
semester for a community service project. . Dr. Melvin I.
U r o fs k y, head admi nistrator o f
th e program feels that this
a significant
part of education at SUNYA,
"It may be that in the future
every student will eventually earn
some credits through volunteer
community work during his or her
four year stay at the university."
He also sees a time when there
will exist a program totally controlled by students with faculty
helping only to decide what credit
will be given for what work. In
addition to these influences on
university life Dr. Urofsky sees
the possibility of a definite improvement
community relationships which
have become strained in recent
years. Urofsky does acknowledge,
though, that the effect on the
community will depend a great
deal on how the program is run,
Although the concept behind
the community service credit program has been discussed within
the university community for
several years it was not until last
spring that the faculty voted to
accept the idea of community
work as a "valid learning experience" for which one could receive academic credit. Very early
this semester the faculty finally
made the decision to start a com
munity service credit program.
Mandatory lax has had an unsteady history. Only a small
minority of students has ever approved of it. Continually, the
debate has raged over its fairness and acceptability, and with each
round of the debate organizations funded by Student Association
have risen hastily to its defense. Now, ilic implications of that tax
directly threaten lhe freedom and existence of those same
organizations and clubs.
The decision rendered by Judge Koreman, defining lhe monies
collected through mandatory fee as slate funds, seriously endangers the autonomy of student government. By bringing
Student Association under the supervision of the Board of
Trustees and within the directives of lhe Stale Education Law, it
threatens to involve that government in an unworkable bureaucracy of state audit and control. The procedures of (he state,
which not even the university administration must follow in full,
would render student government ineffective lhe moment they
were enforced.
Indications arc that within a week an appeal will he filed in the
Appelate Court. Indications are, too, thai Chancellor Boyer and
President Benezet are co-operating with Student Association to
free those funds pending the appeal. Judge Korcman's decision,
however, makes il clear that whatever the short term arrangements made and whatever the outcome of the appeal, no student
government of a stale university, which is supported by mandatory lax, can lake its independence too lightly.
Clearly stale coercion, often a means of stale protection, is a
means of destruction as well. The penalties used to support
mandatory lax, such as lhe withholding of grades and refusal of
diplomas, have become in fact the crutch of student government.
They constitute an unacceptable dependency on the state and to
thai extent weaken the freedom of students lo organize themselves. Whatever lhe outcome of Stringer vs. Gould, lhe fact
remains thai student government by depending on stale co-operation lus short-changed its own freedom and its own strength.
Il is imperative therefore, thai all parlies involved re-cummil
themselves to live basic right of student freedom. Dr. Boyer and
Dr. Benezcl must publicly slate lo the Board of Trustees their
opposition to any interference with Student Association. Central
Council, most importantly, must begin an immediate investigation
into the means of freeing Student Association from the crutch of
mandatory lax and the evcr-presenl threat of stale coercion. Il is
lhe first responsibility ol" those m studenl government to lake the
means lo protect the freedom of thai government. To insure Ihat
freedom, mandatory tax must go.
The Office of Innovative and
Developmental Education which
is now administering E.O.P. was
given the job of handling the new
p r o j e c t , and Assistant Dean
Urofsky was appointed to head
this new program. Urofsky began
to formulate the program by contacting the Volunteer Bureau of
Albany which possesses a list of
all community service organizations, their manpower requirements and provides a central organization through which students
have been able to find work.
Urofsky emphasizes that without
the help of the Volunteer Bureau
the program would have been
On Wednesday, September 9 t an
informational meeting was held.
Present were representatives of
the Volunteer Bureau, Legal Aid
Society, SENCAP and other organizations as well as over 300
.students. At this meeting it was
made perfectly clear that no student would be kept in the program who showed an unwillingness to work, and it was stated
that there were provisions for
dropping those members who did
not meet the requirements. In the
case of service projects a careful
check would be kept of the individual doing them. It is up to the
individuals to make arrangements
with the university and the organizations they work with to ascertain what was to be expected
from them in terms of papers and
other proof of project completion,
Students who wished to enroll
in the program had to first contact the agency they wished to
work for or the Volunteer Bureau
and secure a note stating what
work they would be doing and
how many hours a week they
would be working. They were
then given a course curd and had
to follow the normal drop/add
procedure. As a rule, credits are
given on the basis of five hours a
week equal to three credits, but
this varies. As of now, about 300
students have signed up for volunteer work, and a half dozen for
project work. Volunteer work
consists, of such things as tutoring,
technical assistance in hospitals,
and research for legal aid.
Urofsky explained that only
those who were qualified through
some sort of previous experience,
and had a clear idea in mind of
what they wanted to do were
allowed to undertake projects.
Projects range from one girl's program to catch potential dropouts
to another boy's program for a

Refer Board Offers Help

immediate attention and help.
If necessary, Refer will do

problem area. But areas inadequately treated in the community, such us runaways and

Professor Advocates
Independent Study
by Vicki Gottlieb
In this important election
year in New York, ten political
science students are aiding in
election campaigns as their independent sutdies projects. Yet,
according to the sponsor of the
project, Professor BernarJohnpoll,
even more important than the
project itself is the amount of
politics employed in the entire
independent studies program.
The object of the political
seiency project is to study first
hand the entire campaign process.
By so doing, they will be able to
apply their previous knowledge of
political science to the actual political situation. In order the granted his three credits for the course,
each will havto prepare a paper or
a dissertation explaining what he
has learned. Johnpoll's only regret
is thai the course, organized last
May, could not have included
working with the actual nominating process.
Johnpoll, assistant professor in
political science, regards the independent study program as one
of the best methods of m
struction. The only problem, he
feels, is in getting professors who
are willing to undertake all the
work involved. An advocate of
more direct relations between
faculty and students, Johnpoll believes that this university "is making a terrible mistake in not thinking of a tutorial system' of education similar to that of Britain.
Johnpoll believes that the work
load of each professor should include monthly sessions with his
students in which they can get lo
know each other and the problems of their fields. According to
him, "each subject is peripheral to
the professor," and the students
are losing out by being taught by
traduate assistants.
The basic purpose of the initiation of independent study in
political science is to aid the
student participants in their understanding of the American political system. As they further
their knowledge they will also

In the case of Vernon Bowen,
an Albany State student and the
Black Panther charged with criminal mischief and harassment,
the order sent to security through
administrative channels was to
"pursue vigorously." In effect,
they meant his case was assigned a
top priority rating which would
probably (and in this case did)
lead to prosecution in criminal

question whether Bowen is being

Civilian Review Board
Out of such controversy came
i the call by Student Association
President Dave Neufeld, his cabinet, and Central Council for the
necessity of having a review board
to oversee security operations.
Such a board would be composed
of students, faculty and administration.
Ultimately, the effectiveness of
such a board would depend on the
reaction of President Benezet. Will
the board have thu power to set
priorities for security? Can it decide the worth of photographic
evidence used in investigations?
Can it dispense* the funds security
will receive within the next few

Candidates Exchange Views
At Hyatt House Confrontation
by Bob Baldassano
At a confrontation at the
Hyatt House in Albany last
week the three Senatorial candidates informally debated.
Ottinger accused Goodell of inconsistency. Goodell made it a
point of pride that he was capable
of change. And Buckley condemned them both.
United by their awareness of
the growing frustrations of the
people with their government,
the candidates propounded their
individual philosophies to a gathering of the New York State
Publishers Association.
The key issue was the ability
of democracy to function. No
panacea was offered, no lasting
r e m e d y promulgated. But a
sense of imminent destruction
was imparted to the audience if
no solution within the system
was established. The candidates,
Senator Goodell, Rep. Ottinger
and Mr. Buckley pointed out
that Washington was somehow
responsible and in a large was
accountable for the country's
loss of confidence in its go vernment.
The first speaker, Rep. Ottinger, maintained that the federal government's inability to listen to the people was the
"central issue of the coming
decade." The mood of the
country is "not reactionary,
but frustrated by unworkuble
programs." He questioned the
role of the elected official in
creating social change. He pointed o u t that such officials
should act as catalysts, to brine;
positive reactions from the Executive as well as to sponsor
such positive actions themselves.
The vicious cycle of welfare
must be broken, quality housing must become a reality and
the utilities and services must
raise their standards; these were
cited by the Congressman as
positive actions. Ottinger called
Ralph Nader typical of the
m e n American politics must
produce if the country wished
to continue functioning.
Senator Goodell emphasized
his experience in Congress. He
pointed out that during his
terms of office as a Represen-

Also discussed during the forum was the freezing of Student
Association funds by a court order. The enjoining of student
funds is the result of a lawsuit
brought against SA, contesting allocation of student funds to political groups. Student Association
President Dave Neufeld pledged
that as many student organizations as possible will continue to
operate through the use of private
contributions. He also stated that
the court's decision will be appealed. Final decision as to the

tative, he was a Republican
blindly following "the negative
and sterile" approaches of his
party. As a Senator, however,
he has changed most spectacularly on the war issue. During the early sixties he said
that he espoused the philosophy of Barry Goldwater and at
the end of the decade, though,
he was the first to sponsor
legislation to end the war
through unilateral withdrawal.
Still, whatever sentiments may
have inspired this change of
heart, Senator Goodell realizes
he has problems within the Rep u b l i c a n party. These were
sloughed off with the statement
that Goodell considers himself
no party man who voted strict
party line. Earlier in the day,
however, Rockefeller announced
that Goodell was the Republican on the ticket to stay and
he gave the senator his full
Senator Goodell sees as the
cause of the domestic crisis
the endlessly prolonged conflict
in South East Asia, which has
drained off much of the money necessary to clear the social
blight on this country.
The incumbent declared that
federal government 's role
in rehabilitating addicts, easing
the welfare crisis and rebuilding
the cities must be more clearly
defined. It is up to the Federal
Government to take the iniative
to solve these problems and
not allow the States and localities to assume this burden.
As the standard-bearer of the
Conservative Party, Buckley castigated the philosophies of Mr.
Ottinger and Senator Goodell
as "systems of resolves that
have not worked in the past
except to bring the country to
a standstill." He chided that
"we seem to be losing control
over our own destiny.
Furthermore, when a violent attack
is made upon the policies of
this country, we should not resort to the streets to solve issues." As a note of clarification,
Buckley, before the address,
pointed out the universities are
chartered to educate people,
but he stated explicitly that
education was entirely alien to
awareness of social priorities
und the need for social change.
Granting that there are certain problems, such as pollution, that should be handled by
the federal government t Buckley remonstrated government
for promising too much and
coming through with too little.

Demands and tactics to eliminate sex discrimination in the
education and employment policies of SUNY were finalized here
Saturday at the second meeting of
the Caucus on Women's Rights.
The demands which, if met,
could ultimately affect woman's
role in the family and saciety, had
been previously drawn up at the
first meeting held June 20 at
Syracuse University.
These demands, some of which
include the grounds for the federul complaint filed against
SUNYA, have been adopted into a
proclamation which will be presented to the university.
The proclamation, approved
by vote of over seventy representatives of the state system included demands for the abolition
of sexism in all courses, the establishment of women's studies, equal
pay scales and benefits, one half
of all scholarships and fellowships
to be awarded to women and
various changes in employment
practices concerning hiring of husbands and wives. A free 24 hour
child care center was also listed.
The tutics used, in addition to
the federal complaint, will include
getting the endorsement of local
and s t a t e w i d e faculty senates,
A.A.U.P., AA.A.U.W., bargaining
agents of the C.S.E.A. and A.F.T.,

Young Republicans and other unorganized political conservatives

Student Association funds.
Kenneth Stringer enlisted in
the army directly out of high
school, In 1966, while the Vietnam War raged, he applied lor
Officers Candidate School. It was
common knowledge at that time
that all commissioned officers
would serve in Vietnam.
After Vietnam, Stringer entered
Albany State. As he pursued his
studies in history, his dislike for
mandatory tax grew. He came to
believe that the tax represented an
"expropriation of personal property by a state institution"
which violated his property rights
as a student of this university.
In Stringer's own self-appraisal
his motivations were both "selfish" and "individualistic." He felt
that as a student who paid mandatory tax he should have a say
in how those funds were used.
Revenues collected through the
agency of the state, that is,
through the Bursar, and made
mandatory by the State, that is
the university, should go directly
to the state treasury, Stringer contends.
Stringer has been
around. He was born in Baltimore,
Md.. He attended high school in
Vermont, went to Vietnam and
then to Albany. He plans, moreover, to enter law school in 1971
ill the University of Chicago. Ultimately, he is interested in a
career as a corporation lawyer.

The resolution is somewhat
similar to the faculty's "Non-Political University" stance which is
a reaction to last year's strike, and
the Senate's anti-Vietnam War resolution.
In a bill to revise the voting
procedure of the Senate, the
quorum call of that body was
reduced from 60% of its membership (which is 100) to 50% plus
one member.
The purpose of the revision was
to enable an easier flow of Senate
business because quorums are not
easily filled, and because it makes
the possibility of any boycott to
Impede Senate business less likely.

Alleged violation of Student Association financial policy and
mismanagement have resulted in a Central Council investigation of the
campus radio station WSUA.
A committee, headed by Tom Clingan, was appointed by Central
Council President Dave Neufeld "to immediately investigate the whole
operation of WSUA, i.e. past, present, and future," according to the
Council resolution.
Council ordered the inquiry on the basis of a bill introduced by Jeff
Wasserman which charged "gross violation and patent neglect of the
Constitution of Student Association, Student Association Financial
Policy, the Constitution of WSUA, and the Laws of the New York
The original bill called for a complete shut down of the station at
midnight September 24. However, sensing the need for communication to continue, Council amended the bill, allowing the station to
continue broadcasting, under the supervision of the committee.
Wasserman, in arguing for passage of the original motion, contended
that WSUA had been fiscally irresponsible on several counts —

youth culture spoke Sunday night
to a crowd estimated at 1200 in
Albany State's gymnasium.
The poetry reading sponsored
by the Free School also featured
appearances by Gerry Wagner,
whose dismissal from the Rhetoric
and Public Address faculty caused
an uproar on campus last year.
Wagner read two poems ending
with his message to the crowd,
summarizing, he said "where his
head is at now." "If it feels good
and doesn't hurt anybody, do it.'
The evening's events had started
with a spirited rendition of popular and folk music by Hector
Rivera, a student here at Albany.
His selections included: "Woodstock," "In My Life," "Fire and
Rain," and "Tommy."
Then Wagner strode to the podium, gave brief comments about
his court trial and welcomed the
audience to the first event of the
Free School. He pledged that the
school would continue operating,
even though its funds are caught
in the general budget freeze ordered by SA President Dave Neufeld
as a result of last week's Supreme
Court decision.
The highlight of the evening was
an all too short appearance by

the audience with a prophetic
recitation from the works of

an epidemic of strep throat, admitted there was an outbreak of

Dr. Schmidt clarified some of
the misunderstandings which have
been circulating campus. He admitted there was an outbreak of
upper respiratory infections and a
rash of sore throats. Dr. Schmidt
stressed the fact that there were

but it had not reached epidemic
Students have been found to
have strep throat. It is prevalent
throughout the living areas although it is puilieularly concentrated in one of the quadrangles.
The State Health Department has
been on campus taking a survey of
itudents, both those that are sick
ind those who have not demonstrated any symptoms, in an effort to arrest the spread of the
strep-tococcus bacteria. In a review of the random throat cultures, it was discovered that a
disproportionate number of students who do not appear sick are
carrying the bacteria. The food
handlers are also being tested as a
possible cause of the spread.
How the strep has been carried
is unknown at this time. The
major possibilities are through the
food or from person to person.
An investigation is being conducted to answer the question.
In the meantime, the university
is taking preventive measures. Dr.
Schmidt has been in contact with
the State Health Department and
the U.S. Department of Health.
Since this is not an emergency, no
immediate action has been taken
yet. One possibility which is being
discussed is that of administering
preventative treatment at all the
living areas beginning with the one
which has reported the most cases
of sore throats. This would also
include students who are not ill.
Such action is being seriously considered because the bacteria can
affect the kidneys. Before any
measures can be initiated, a permit will probably be reguired for
those students under 21, and tests
