JOE:
A "Gut Reaction
Deeply Moved Hippie
Hey, you gotta dig this flick
that's been playing in Albany for
the past couple of weeks; by the
name of "Joe." Well, it's about
this hard-hat who teams up with a
big company executive when they
discover they both feel the same
way about freaks. I mean, it
shows you what can happen if we
don't stay hip to what's going on,

Davis And Brignola A Hit
by Bob Rosenblum
It was about an hour late when
the concert was ready to begin
and the restless crowd was in no
mood to listen to some third rate
warm-up group. Nick Brignola *s
quartet took the stand for the
most part unknown and the audience grudgingly sat down tohear
what he had to offer. To their
surprise it was an explosive set of
rock-jazz selections of the highest
order.
Brignola started out slowly with
a barely audible baritone solo, but
many appreciated the hard driving
beat of drummer Larry Jackson
and bassist Eddie Ananias. The
reedman moved to tenor and alto,
Santana LosesSecond Time
by Eric Graeber
SANTANA is one of the groups
that burst into national prominence after their performance at
the Woodstock Music and Art
Fair. They have recently released
their second album, ABRAXAS,
on the Columbia label.
Carlos Santana is basically »
very limited guitarist, and he is
not about to win any awards with
his voice.
SANTANA's performance and
personality hinges on their drums,
bongos, and percussion and in this
realm they are top notch. Greg
Shrieve may be on his way to
replacing Ginger Baker as the
most exciting rock drummer.
There is a bit more versatility on

chords. "Singing Winds, Crying

"Oye Co mo Va" is vintage SANTANA as the group effectively
mixes Carlos' grinding guitar licks
with Rollie's swirling organ solo.
Unfortunately, the other songs
on the album are dull, repetitious,
and devoid of spirit. Carlos Santana's one attempt at country
blues is a complete dud. "Incident
at Neshabur" fails to live up to its
interesting title as the group
doesn't seem to know in which
direction they want the song to
go. It has no main theme, no
substantive outline, a complaint
that could be made about most of
SANTANA's instrumental.
In sum, most of the flavor and
e x c i t e m e n t that pervades a
SANTANA concert is somehow
lost on their album work.
but it was not until he picked up
the flute that the people really
became attentive. He has mastered
the humming flute technique that
has been recently popularised by
Jethro Tull, in a song consisting of
short segments of stop time. From
then on he had all listeners eating
out of his hands. An encore was
demanded and given: an untempo
number with a slick running bassline.
Miles Davis was the main event
and he offered some interesting
music. He opened on trumpet and
the group played continuously
barely acknowledging applause.
Davis' playing has changed radically, borrowing from {of all people)
Don Ellis as well as Coltrane. He
mixed screaming glissandos with
short one-note attacks as perfectly
timed as a boxer's punch. Whoever played on electric piano had
a lot of technique, and generally
used it to advantage. The reed
man also played nicely if often
unimaginatively, and stuck pretty
much to a blues drenched concept. He reminded me a lot of
ex-Gillespe-ite Leo Wright when
plaing alto, both in tone and
conception. .lack de Johnette provided all the spark that Davis
needed. He has become one of the
most proficient drummers in
avante guarde jazz.
Unfortunately the gym is not at
all suited to jazz. The seating,
both on the bleachers or the floor,
was very uncomfortable and the
sound was treacherous. Don
York's piano was rarely more articulate than a constant shriek and
bass was often imperceptable But
despite these inadequacies the
audience gave the musicians a
generally good reception.

chick—beautiful people—are trying to hash out some sort of love
life in their place in the Village;
he's trying to turn her on to what
he's doing, namely doi,e, but she's
not quite free of her middle-class
suburbia-type hangups. You
know? Anyway, she has a bad trip
and ends up in a hospital; her old
man (executive guy) flips out
when he sees her and goes to the
apartment in the Village, where he
bashes her boyfriend's head in
because he can't dig their relationship.
Now, all that's pretty straight,
happens a lot, I guess, but the
flick really gets heavy when the
old man meets Joe in a bar. In
between blacks, gay people, and
youth in general, Joe finds out
about the murder and who did it,
and becomes friends with the
executive. You can almost see a
common bond of hatred drawing
these two skunks closer together
as they rove around the city looking for the guy's daughter (who
also figured out the murder, and
ran away). You know they're going to end up doing something
bloody; be sure to hang onto your
guts for the closing scene.
You can get twisted, though,
about what the flick is trying to
say, by listening to some of Joe's
outrageous lines. I mean, they're
so outrageous they begin to be
funny at times, which is rea//,y bad
because you have to realize you're
watching a true thing, you know?
And you can get totally screwed
up paying too much attention to
the two of them when they quietly complain about the lives they
live.
But dig the violence. Don't miss
it. Absolutely essential. Makes
you realize how the attitude of
most adults (which v all know
about, you know?) s threatening
the very existence of sons and
daughters and young people in
general. These cats are dangerous,

New Lots
Debated
by Steve Salant
by Kenneth Deane
David Neufeld, President of Student Association said Wednesday
that he would attempt to stop the
construction of proposed parking
lots "at alt costs, even if we have
to obtain a court order."
The 31st of this month marks
the culmination of the Fall Antiwar C a m p a i g n . Rallies and
marches, in protest of the Vietnam War, are being planned in
t h i r t y cities throughout the
United States in commemoration.
Protest activites on campus will
begin Saturday, with a march on
the capital from the downtown
campus. The march will assemble
at 11 a.m. at Draper Hall and
proceed down Western Avenue to
the Capitol Building.
He was reacting to the announcement of plans to begin, as
soon as possible, the construction
of parking lots between each
quadrangle and the proposed extension of the Academic Podium.
Neufeld termed the parking lot
plans "unacceptable under any
type of condition," and raised
numerous reasons for his objection to the lots.
Speakers and entertainment are
scheduled following the march.
The proposed parking lots will be located between the new West Podium Extension and the quadrangles. The speakers will include a

Gay Liberation Front: An
Attempt at Understanding
by Kathy Kelley
"...Freedom Now!" is among
the demands in the recently-issued
Manifesto of the Gay Liberation
Front of the Tri-Cities. The Manifesto f u r t h e r asserts that
"...homosexuality is as healthy
and constructive a force on
personal alid social levels as
heterosexuality." To promote
these ideas within both the homosexual and heterosexual communities, the Gay Liberation Front
(GLF) in the Albany area has
been meeting for over three
months.
Tri-Cities Gay Lib was formed as
a result of a meeting held here on
July 23 by the Right On Training
Center at which members of the
New York City'GLF spoke. Meetings are now held every Thursday
night at 8:30 in the Unitarian
Church,406 Washington Avenue in
Albany. Speaker at the October
10 meeting was Professor Laud
Humphreys, author of "Tearoom
Trade," a study of homosexual
activity in public restrooms,
which won the C. Wright Mills
Award for sociological research.
Professor Humphreys is a member
of the Criminal Justice depart-l
ment at SUNYA.
Besides meetings, GLF has social
activities, such as dances for its
members. Also, the group is acting to promote the legal rights and
fair treatment of homosexuals,
Members of Gay Lib have contacted political candidates, requesting that they make known
their positions on the legal problems that confront homosexuals,
i.e. equality for homosexuals and
anti-homosexual laws. Their responses, according to "Right On,"
a p a m p h l e t p u t o u t by
Mattachine, were: favorable statements by Goodell, Ottinger, and
Goldberg; no response from
Rockefeller or from Buckley. Political action by the Tri-Cities GLF
is rather limited because of the
variety of opinions held by its
members, from far right to radical
left.
On an individual level, Gay Lib
encourages its members to tell
their employers that they are
homosexuals so that this fact
can't be used to threaten them
with loss of their jobs or blackmail. For some, such as women
with children, this is not possible,
because their children could be
taken away from them.
Planned for the future is a talk
by the Reverend Troy Perry, of
the Metropolitan Community
Church of Los Angeles. One of
the few churches that welcomes
homosexuals, it has a regular Sunday attendance of 2,500. Reverend Perry will speak on Thursday,
November 12 at 8:00 in Page Hall.

The Labor Department has reported that "substantial " unemployment, which indicates a 6% unemployment level, has spread
to five major cities including Los Angeles. The rise in unemployment is seen as a late election boon for the Democrats.
President Nixon flew to Florida Tuesday night to shore up
sagging support for the Republican Senatorial candidate, Representative William C. Cramer. The Florida trip is the beginning of
Nixon's final push to gain control of the Senate.

World News
American officials are hopeful that the three U.S. Army officers
who violated Soviet "airspace" would be released soon from the
Soviet Union. All were reported in good condition. Soviet
authorities sent Washington a quick note protesting the border
violation, but U.S. officials were quick to dismiss the protest as
propaganda.
Britain's Conservative Party, in keeping with its traditional
laissez- faire policy, has cut taxes, subsidies, and government
spending in general. Heath's economic policy is widely regarded as
a sharp departure form the Labor Party's socialist policies.
Roger C.B. Morton, the Republican National Chairman, attached Mayor Lindsay for his sharp criticism of President Nixon.
Morton said that Lindsay has broken all ties with the Republican
Party.Lindsay had charged, earlier in the week, that Nixon "has
spread a cloud of suspicion and mistrust over our whole nation,"
during this year's campaign.
Arthur Goldberg has tagged Governor Rockerfeller as a "fellow
traveler" of Nixon and Agnew, because of what the former Justice
calls Rockerfeller's "reactionary leadership." Goldberg also scored
Rockerfeller for silently rejecting his running-mate, Charles
Goodell, in favor of Jim Buckley, the Conservative standard
bearer.
Senator Goodell said that he was bitter about Rockerfeller's
tacit support of the Conservative Senatorial nominee, Buckley.
The Goodell camp complained that the Governor is running with
both the Republican and Conservative nominees.
. ...
Richard Ottinger has lambasted Jim Buckley for what he called
an "unconscionable" statement charging that the Democrat was
linked with the Black Panthers and the Ku Klux Klan, among
other extremist groups. Ottinger called Buckley a "coward" and
termed the attack an act of political desperation, comparable to
the tactics of Wallace and Agnew.

Neil Brown doesn't just voice concern about

Dean of Student Life, a newly created position,
Neil's objective is " t o help students with their

my job as one in which I take student concerns, and
then acting as a University administrator, try to

necessary role."
Neil is no stranger to the University. He began
here as an undergraduate, completed his Master's

and of fire that throbs even now
in my chest like some surging

God knows I've been feeling the

the weight of the dead of the ages,
been wounded quite deep by the
hate of the dead of our age—the
cynical, spiteful, the soulless, the
crazed.

A renewed threat of McCarthyism was somewhat stifled this
week by a decision handed down
by Judge Gerhard A. Gesell of the
U.S. District Court in Washington
D.C.
The court decision is a landmark
in that it limits Congressional
power. Judge Gessell stated "it is
alien to any legitimate Congressional function, as well as contrary to our most established traditions, for any committee of the
Congress to disseminate lists dosigned to suppress speech."
The report, issued by the House
I n t e r n a l Security Committee,
took form by asking 179 colleges
and universities to list all the
speakers who had appeared on
campus within the last two years.
Rep. Richard H. Ichord (Dem.,
Missouri), chairman of the committee, attempted to prove by this
investigation that the monies
earned by the speakers had gone
toward financing left-wing groups.
The committee received 95
questionnaires in response, and
decided that out of those names
listed, 65 were "radical and/or
revolutionary" speakers. Their
names and their affiliations comprise most of the banned report.
Ichord released the report two
weeks ago and Judge Gessell is
sued a temporary restraining order
forbidding the public or the super
intendent of documents from
publishing it. Wednesday, Gessell
made the injunction permanent
and stated "the court notes the
increasing tendency of the legislative branch to investigate for
exposure's sake..." The Judge,
however, did not attempt to stop
members of Congress or others
from printing the report on their
own.
The injunction, if upheld, would
prevent the report's being issued
or quoted its an offical Govern
ment document. Gessell did not
limit others from issuing the report because "there are limits to
judicial power, just as there are
limits to Congressional committee action..."

EDITORIAL
A Nation So Troubled
These are deeply troubling times for the nation. Never since
the Revolutionary War have the American people been so
locked in fear and divisiveness. The issues and problems swirl,
stagger the mind of the voter. The more crucial and complex
the issue, the greater the inability of the electorate to
comprehend the proposals and programs. The more crucial the
issue, the more repressive and bitter the mood becomes.
What is happening to American society? What is happening to
New York State?
The situation... A governor in office for twelve years, a
national figure, the complete bureaucrat and politician. His
years of administration have seen the budget steadily rise from
$2 billion to $7'/i billion, education expenditures from $600
million to nearly $2.5 billion Willi the expansion of (he Stale
University system lo include 69 campuses and 192,000 full lime

governments rise from less thai $1 billion lo more than $4
billion, the creation of the New York Mortgage Agency with
$750 million in bonding authority, the establishment of the
Urban Development Corporation which has signed agreements
with 22 localities lo develop 30,000 units of housing, massive
office construction slarts, fostering construction booms in New
York City and Albany, the creation of numerous regulatory
agencies in llic fields of pollution, industry hiring practices and
consumer protection.
Yet. it appears in 1970 as if Anthony Weiner's
prediction was correct: "The possibility must he
faced thai man's unremitting, Paustian striving may
ultimately remake his natural conditions environmental, social and psychobiological so far as lo
begin lo dehumanize himself or to degrade his
political or ecological situation in some cosily or
even irrevocable manner."
For behind the growth of New York State and American
society unparalleled crises simmer: hard drug addiction...
u n e m p l o y m e n t . . . transportation inadequacies... housing
shortages... pollution of Ihe air and water... tax inequities and
levels... fiscal irresponsibility... growing tensions on the
campuses and in the minority communities... spiraling welfare
costs and the inability of the second most populous state to
meet them... backlog in the courts... corruption and inefficiency
in the state agencies... congestion and breakdown in the cities...
Ant! 'limalely, the consequence of Weiner's prediction, the
outrage of those whom society has dismally failed, and its
growing violent expression. A troubled electorate has been
provided scapegoats and Campaign 70 increasingly lakes on the
aura of a witchhunt.
Never in history has an election campaign posed such an
ominous threat to the constitutional liberty of the American
people. Never have so many candidates chosen not to discuss
the issues intelligently and coherently. Never have there been so
many scapegoats. They have impugned each other each other's
intelligence or honesty or patriotism or dedication. They have
collectively impugned the most frustrated and outraged of Ihe
crashed minorities.
Campaign
70 has been
r e p l e t e with deliberate
misrespresentation, rhetorical divisiveness, advertising hoaxes,
overstatement, and the nation's Vice-President himself has
played a major role in this degradation.
What candidate has offered the hope that we might slop Ihe
deliuiuaiii/alion of our way of living? What candidate has not
reserved Ihe most persuasive of his rhetoric to castigate his
opponent or the "revolutionary?" Whal candidate has successlull'y conducted a campaign of public education?
Flection, 1970, is a true reflection of the nation at large. The
half-truths, the bitterness, the irrelevance of much that has
happened represents a society which is frightened and troubled.
It reveals a nation that desperately needs revival and reordering.
It reveals a people who arc tired, grieved at the failure they are
perpetuating.
It reveals a people who, so grieved, are turning in on
themselves, depriving themselves of their constitutional lifeblood their liberty. It reveals a people, so grieved, that they
desperately believe that no-knock, preventive detention, wirelapping, capital punishment and Henderson Acts will make Ihe

Rockefeller Cites Record
Decrees Misrepresentation
Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller was interviewed in his New
York City executive headquarters
on September 9.
Governor Rockefeller is running
to vindicate his record of twelve
years, to re-establish himself as a
national figure and to be able to
continue his program of building
up New York State.
While Mr. Rockefeller has conducted most of his campaign on
these themes, increasingly in the
last weeks he has turned to attacking his river, Arthur Goldberg.
Mr. Rockefeller defends his record by pointing to the extensive
network of programs and agencies
and construction the state has
seen in recent years.
His years of incumbency have
seen the state budget rise from 2
billion to $7'/i billion, the expansion of the state university system
from 38,000 full-time students to
192,000, the creation of the
Urban Development Corporation,
massive construction particularly
in New York City, Albany and
Buffalo, the expansion of the
state's welfare expenditures to the
point where they are the highest
in the nation.

to the right wing and center ethnic groupings throughout the
state.

"I intend in this campaign to
speak to and speak for the millions of New Yorkers who will not
stand by while the wreckers go to
work," proclaims James Buckley,
Conservative-lndependent candidate for the Senate.
Included in the "millions" are
the majority of black New
Yorkers "who repudiate the fanatic hatred preached by a militant
few, the majority of students
"who attend their colleges and
universities, who have a serious
purpose of securing an education
and who bitterly resent having
that education interrupted by the
strong arm tactics of a few," and
the "rank and file of American
labor, which marched on Wall
Street 150,000 strong to demontrate their love of country."
Buckley backers claim a strong
rapport with the "silent majority." These voters, they feel, are
fed up with crime, campus violence and anliwar protests and
tend to blame "liberal" politicians
for fanning unrest.
The Conservative candidate supports President Nixon's war policy
and argues that the U.S. will not
be a credible f o r e in the Middle
East if it does nci have credibility
in Southeast Asia. "We are not
going to allow the balance of
power to be tipped," he says,
Buckley's views on other topics
follow:
Students-Colleges and universities have become sanctuaries for
campus toughs who terrorize
faculty and other students. He
criticizes school administrators
who "fail to talk back [lo radicals] and who concede that they
have an argument when they have
not."
Drugs "A separate court system
should be established to provide
separate treatment for addicts."
There is a need for a "strict
crackdown on the importers and
wholesalers of drugs."

dilemma to the nation's youth. By

Goldberg has charged that Rockefeller is a rubber-stamp for the

economy. The democral favors a
more hasty withdrawal from
Southeast Asia. On the economy,
Goldberg blames the Governor for
the high rate of unemployment in

responsible for inflationary recession. Goldberg models some of his
programs in this field on those of

Gridders Must Dent Marist Defense To Win
(Mr. Lefkowitz was interviewed
at a Saratoga appearance on Oct.
16.)
Louis Lefkowitz has been attacked by Adam Walinsky for his
failure to prosecute violations in
industry hiring practices and pollution. He reacts strongly to these
charges and calls them "irresponsible."
Lefkowitz claims to have been
active in both fields. He cited the
following cases in which fines
have been collected:
Roberts Brothers-$ 100
Mecca Brothers-$75
Taylor Line-$500
Chandler-$650 (forcing them
out of business)
Peter Cooper-$600
Mobil Oil Corp.-$IO,000
He claims, moreover, that his
office has no control over the
graining or withholding of rebates - the returning of the finesand that Walinsky's charge that
most of the lines have been rebated is irrelevant.
Lefkowitz, as well, claims Ihal
his office is limited Ihal it can
prosecute only matters which arc
referred lo it by Ihe state commissions. Thus, for instance, he answers Walinsky's charge that the
dcalh of 58 workers due to health
violations went unprosecuted,
with Ihe replay that Ihe Industrial
Commission did not believe there
was sufficient evidence to bring
suit and therefore did not refer
the matter lo the Attorney General's office.
Lefkowitz has also made proposals to clear the backlog in the
courts, calling for the establishment of a Special Court for Narcotics Cases, the transference of
all civil judges to the criminal
part, the working of extra hours
by those judges, and the use of
volunteer lawyers lo serve in hearing misdemeanors.
He has likewise called for the
creation of a consumers' division
within Ihe Attorney General's office.
Lefkowitz ha- proposed a "Consumer's Bill of Rights" which
would consist of thirteen laws,
which are intended to prolecl Ihe
consumer.

by Dave Fink
T h e person m o s t directly affected by this new awareness of football
a n d its relationship to our existence is the coach. He Is the one w h o
m u s t c o p e with it, try to u n d e r s t a n d it and, m o s t i m p o r t a n t l y ,
a t t e m p t to alter his m e t h o d s t o deal with it.
A l b a n y coach, Dr. R o b e r t F o r d has taken this step. He realizes t h a t
t o run a football p r o g r a m he m u s t not live in the past. He is aware of
the feelings of t o d a y ' s s t u d e n t and he has endeavored to treat his
players with the respect with which he would have t h e m treat him.
T h e r e is a basic a s s u m p t i o n that o n e must make a b o u t football.
Because it is a t e a m game as o p p o s e d to a sport which is characterized
by individual effort, there m u s t be a certain degree of discipline
present. A player has a responsibility, n o t only to himself, but to ten
o t h e r m e n . T h u s he m u s t n o t only a d h e r e to the c o a c h e s ' rules but he
m u s t learn t o regulate his own actions Dr. Ford does not believe in
rules for the sake of rules. He does not care a b o u t the length of a
man's hair unless it gets t o the point where he c a n n o t see because of it.
S o m e t i m e s , a m a n with t o o m u c h hair is exposed to head injury
because his h e l m e t will n o t fit securely. T h e n he m u s t have it cut. He
cares little a b o u t h o w a player dresses because it does not affect his
play. He will n o t tell his players w h a t hour to be in bed, nor will he
tell t h e m n o t t o drink or n o t to s m o k e . He wilt tell them how b o t h
can hinder t h e i r effort and then leave it up to their personal
discretion. He u n d e r s t a n d s that football is not for everyone, t h a t t h e r e
are t h o s e w h o c a n n o t subject themselves to any degree of discipline.
He also realizes t h a t for those w h o do want to play ball, he must n o t
m a k e it distasteful for t h e m .
F o o t b a l l , to Dr. F o r d , is t h " essence of d e m o c r a c y . While he realizes
t h a t t h e r e is n o r o o m for it in t h e h u d d l e , he m a k e s a practice of it in
administering t o the team. T h e quarterback is the boss in the h u d d l e .
T h e r e is no t i m e , nor is it e x p e d i e n t to take a vote o n the play to run.
But on the field, as a whole, the team of (JO men is a microcosm of t h e
outside world. " T h e s q u a d is comprised of Jews, Catholics, Protestants, Blacks, whites, Orientals, rich men and poor men. On t h e
football field, they all have the same o p p o r t u n i t y . It's u n f o r t u n a t e
that this is not the case off the field," s l a t e d F o r d .
Finally, we have all been told that a sport such as football builds
character. When asked what this meant, Dr. Ford said this: " S o m e time in every m a n ' s life, he will p r o b a b l y he c o n f r o n t e d with at least
o n e of four bad d i s a p p o i n t m e n t s - 1 ) he will be very serious with a girl
and then break off with her, 2) he will not gel something that he
really wants, II) he will lose a wife or a child or, 1) he will lose a j o b .
He m u s t learn t o get up and fight hack to reestablish his being.
Football has a great p o t e n t i a l for d i s a p p o i n t m e n t , At the same time, it
has a p o t e n t i a l to afford a man the o p p o r t u n i t y to eradicate that
d i s a p p o i n t m e n t . " I n d e e d , football can be a t r e m e n d o u s learning
experience. In s h o r t , to the squeamish, to the non-violent, it has no
w o r t h w h i l e value. Yet, to o t h e r s , it presents an o p p o r t u n i t y to work
hard at achieving a goal, in unison with others, where every man is a
separate and equal e n t i t y , where he can learn h o w lo win and m o s t
i m p o r t a n t , w h e r e he can learn how to lose.

Happiness?
The second most serious problem currently facing our troubled
campuses is the problem of parietal rights. (The first most serious
problem of course is the recent outbreak of moult among sorority
house canaries.)
Let us today look for answers to the parietal rights problem, for
that is the purpose of these columns: to analyze the dilemmas that vex
our colleges, to seek feasible solutions. I write them for the brewers of
Miller High Life Beer. In return they pay me money. That is the
American way. It has made this country great.
But I digress. A parietal right, as you know of course, is the right
of a student to keep a parietal in his room. A parietal, as you know of
course, is a small North American marsupial somewhat like a chipmunk in appearance but actually a species of fur-bearing herring
(mutatis mutandis).
Naturally you all want to keep a parietal in your room. Not only
are they endlessly cheerful —always romping and frisking and wagging
their little binaries—but they're smart too. They're not as smart as
dogs of course, but they can readily learn simple tricks like fetching
your slippers or parsing a sentence.
But the main reason you want a parietal is because they eat nothing but beer cans. I promise you, friends, you get yourself a healthy
adult parietal and you'll never again have to lug empties to the trash
barrel. And of course the better the beer can, the more he'll eat, which
of course accounts for the popularity of Miller High Life on every
campus. Obviously a beer as good as Miller is bound to come in a can
of the same superb quality. And that's what Miller has —superb quality. Also malt and hops and water and a marvelous brewing formula
that's been kept secret for generations. In fact, this formula is so secret
that it's known only to the chief brewmaster and he is never allowed
to leave the brewery. So if you ever find yourself in Milwaukee, look
up his wife.
But I digress. A healthy adult parietal, I was saying, will eat his
weight in Miller beer cans every day. However, if you drink your
Miller in bottles—as millions do, and no wonder, for who is not tempted
by such sparkling amber goodness in such crystal-clear bottles? Eh?
Who is not?—if, I say, you drink your Miller in bottles, I have to tell
you that parietals won't help. They don't eat bottles. In fact, the only
pet that does is the scaly bursar (partniunt iivirjrntii)'), but take my
advice: don't get one. The scaly bursar at best is a beast of sluggish
demeanor and uncertain temperament. Oh, sure, sometimes it will play
a little Monopoly when it's in the mood, but mostly it just lays around
grooming its addenda. Moreover, it's given to sudden fits of pique and
may tusk you without warning.
But I digress. Why, you ask, won't the dean let you keep a parietal in your room? I'll tell you why: the parietal, a nocturnal animal,
sleeps only by day. At night it is always awake and —here's the rub —
during its waking hours it utters a loud, guttural croak approximately
once every 2J <j seconds, a sound something like: "Prock . . . Prock . . .
Prock."

Politics aside, Doug Wager did a worthwhile
directing job. Perhaps the cast was not brilliant
individually; yet it succeeded in working together
like a perfectly oiled, superbly designed machine.
Wager turned a potential handicap (absence of a
"star") into an advantage. All helped equally create
VIET ROCK.
Though no one actor outshone the rest, there were'
.several particularly good performances. As the
sergeant, Greg Haymcs, previously noted in
FEIFFEROLOGY, carried a heavy loud on his back.
One slip and VIET ROCK would have crumbled.
Others, like Margaret Dwyer, Jefr Tinklman, and
Peter Salm, realized their little skits perfectly.
On the other hand, Wager did not cut, or edit
several scenes which stank of kitsch. For example:
the mother/dead son episode, featuring Leslie
Bergson. It belonged to a soap opera; one could
almost hear the violins in the background. It is a,
director's job to realize that improvisations can
lapse into histrionics, and that judicious editing is:
almost a requirement. VIET ROCK was no exception.
But what Wager did with lights mude up for it. He
used all the equipment at his disposal with intelligence and feeling. Moreover, he moved the cast
•round the stage nicely. The combination of the two
produced some interesting visual experiences.

ihould have used the arsenal of logic: one watertight argument is worth fifty buckets of bathos. It is
infinitely superior, and ultimately more viable, to

than wallow in self-pity. That has never changed (

VIET ROCK, Experimental Theatre's newest production, is a series of actor improvisations assembled by Megan Terry, the Yale dramatist. Conceived
in 1966, it was considered at the time to be a radical
outcry against government policy in South East
Asia.
Today, in our post-Chicago/Cambia/Kent world,
VIET ROCK seems of tamer stuff; nevertheless, its
point, that American society inherently destroys
individuals (in this case through the military) is still
applicable. That alone insured the giant turn-out
VIET ROCK enjoyed. In terms of attendance, it is
probably one of the more successful shows performed at this University.
VIET ROCK insists on setting us against Vietnam
on purely emotional grounds. Throughout, Megan
Terry develops situations destined to pull the strings
from under our hearts. Lachrymosety is law;
banished is the brain. This painful alliteration brings
to mind another master of rhetoric, Spiro Agnew.
He too can make speeches which deny reason. He
too can make America shed tears. Only when
Agnew speaks, he is for the war, and on prime-time

H War Protest in Albany
Draws Small Turnout
by Candy Cavallaro
An ASP Feature
"You know, the blacks look up to him...like he's
a god or something"... ten black children beamed up
at the short, stocky man clad in blue denim overalls
pinstriped shirt, tie and leather hat. "I'm surprised
he's so short-he has so much energy, I expected him
to be overbearing."
Pete Jones stepped up to the mike, and described,
movingly, colorfully, the situation in the Albany
ghetto that so urgently demanded the community's
help.
This situation concerns the children. Most kid-s in
the black ghetto do not eat a meal until eight
o'clock in the evening. Since both parents usually
work, the adults are absent from the home from
seven in the morning until five or six in the
afternoon.
The children receive free, cold milk and cereal at
school in the morning, and those few who are lucky
enough to have forty cents, can buy lunch. Otherwise, they scrounge whatever they can find, steal, or
beg. Usually they are hungry. You don't see many
overweight kids on the south side of Albany.
Officially, the children are to receive lunch even if
they do not have forty cents. In reality, school
officials overlook this rule. "A system as hard as any
iron you ever saw" was Pete's description of the
school system and the state and federal governments. Since no one will appropriate money to feed
hungry children, the community must assume the
task.
Pete Jones feels that it is his responsibility to feed
the kids, and to move the community to action. He
started feeding two or three children in the afternoon in an empty room above his restaurant,
appropriately called "Our Place." Now he feeds
sixty kids a day, at his own expense.
Although neighbors assist in preparing and serving
the food, which requires only a few hours a day,
money and food are needed to continue the
operation. In addition, Pete is asking members of
the community to help clean up the ghetto and to
establish a low-cost day c a re center.
Several mothes brought the need for such a center
to his attention. Federally run centers are not
accessible to the "working poor," those people who
do work, but who cannot afford the fifteen dollars
per child per week, and to those children who do
not belong to the three to five age group.
The modestly priced program Pete has proposed is
not as formally structured as regular day care
centers, but it would provide food for the children.
"The hell with arts and crafts"..if a child does not
have "food in his belly," any supplementary programs are futile. Therefore, a primary part of the
proposed "Supervision Center" will be three complete meals each day. The center is thus named to
avoid the requirements which the government sets
for a "Day Care Center."

By reducing the staff, unessential equipment, and
extravagant facilities, the rates can be significantly
reduced to ten dollars for one child, eighteen dollars
for two children, and twenty-five dollars for three
children or more, per week.
Although the benefits of the "extras" of regular
day care centers may be argued, it may also be
pointed out that the environment of the proposed
"Supervision Center" will be far healthier than the
homes from which the children come.
The unhealthy environment of the Albany ghetto
was viewed by the audience through a looseleaf
notebook and several slides which were shown by
Pete. Rubble, deteriorated buildings, unsanitary
facilities and hungry, dirty children pleaded with
one's human compassion and conscience. The only
brightness was in the races of those cleaning up the
rubble.
Volunteers from Colonie , Bethlehem-Central and
other local high schools have been painting and
cleaning up the ghetto for nearly two years. Most of
their materials, such as the poor, watery, varicolored
paints, are donated. Money earned in "Soul food
dinners" at Bethlehem-Central High is also being
used. Still, these materials arc not nearly adequate
Money, and people possessing skills in electrical
wiring, plumbing and the finishing of floors are
desperately needed. Pete Jones is pleasing with the
community to help in his battle against poverty. He
believes that the most important aspect of life is in
relating to and helping people. The smiling faces of
well fed kids arc proor of what can be accomplished.
Every member of the university community
should be concerned with and involved in this
problem. Students wanted "relevance" last spring,
yet, so far, no one has attempted to achieve it. Most
students do not even realize the existence of a
ghetto in Albany. Helping Pete Jones in the black
ghetto is a real, relevant, concrete form of protest,
the results of which include immediate personal
gratification.
WSUA Hurt in Fund Loss
$1,000 left from WSUA's original
budget, the future of the station
this year is in a dangerous position.
The action came as a result of a
tumultuous discussion, featuring
allegations of mismanagement, accusations of misrepresentation by
cerLain Council members, calls for
mass resignations from the WSUA
staff and frequent pleas "to get
this over with," followed by an
equally confused vote.
A roll call vote was taken, resulting in a peculiar 11-1-14 causing
considerable consternation over
the fuel that the abstensions won.
Arguments then ensued over how
the abstaining votes should be
counted, and whether or not it
was 'legal' for members to change
their votes. Finally, another vote
was taken, resulting in a 10-10-6
vote which is interpreted by Student Association rules us defeating
the motion since a clear majority
was not obtained,

letter from Jell' Wasserman, who,

The results of the Ad Hoc Com.
mittee to Supervise Operations of
WSUA were presented to Council
on October K by committee chairman Tom CHngan. The report
discussed the problems faced by
the station in moving WSUA uptown and going FM stereo. Certain recommendations (primarily
concerned with greater supervision of financial operations
through advisors to the business
manager, and frequent conferences with the engineers of the
UniversiLy Center for Educational
Communication before changes
are determined) were accepted
with some amendments by Council. Although the report did not
completely ubsolve alt the WSUA
personnel of guilt, it pointed out
that several of the violations may
huve led to substantial savings in
lime and money for WSUA Moreover, since most, of the contested
expenditures occurred over the
summer, consultation with Council
seemed next-to-impossible.
Wasserman, in his letter, sharply
questioned the advisability of
further funding when the station
had not followed Hie Ad Hoc
Committee's recommendations in
seeking consultation with UCEC
engineers. His letter dealt primarily with his own conversation with
Salvatore De Craepeo from UCEC
concerning the budget supplement. Tom Clingan held that the
procedures used in this instance
by the stations were completely in
accord with the committee's recommendations, and charged that
Wasserman was misrepresenting
DeCruepeo's views.
Thursday's meeting attempted
to clarify the issues before deciding on the additional money.
"1 cannot, in conscience, vote to
give money to the present people
running that station" asserted
Wasserman, in opposing the bill.

FSA Board Reformed;
Votes to Include 3 Students
by Al Serin
Students will have a greater voice in the running of SUN YA's Faculty-Student Association, as a result of
an amendment in the by-laws approved at the annual meeting of the F.S.A. membership board held last
Wednesday afternoon in President Bene/,et's office.
The amendment changes the make-up of the Board of Directors which is responsible for setting priorities
and overseeing month-by-month operations of F.S.A.
Previously, this board had consisted of ten members, seven of whom were administrators. Student
membership was limited to the President of the Graduate Student Body and President of Central Council.
There was also one faculty member.
Thus, Albany State students found themselves having no meaningful voice in the expenditure of F.S.A.
monies, mostly collected from students through the bookstore, vending machines, and food service
operations.
It is hoped that the revision will change this. The board of directors will now consist of a triumverate
membership- three administrators, three students, and three faculty members. The President of the
Graduate Student Association, and the President and Vice-President of Central Council (Student
Association) will be the student members.
The actual amendment was
introduced at last week's F.S.A.
membership meeting by Student
Association Vice-President Mike
Lumper I, The membership board
meets annually to choose directors
of the corporation and to transact
"such other business as may come
before the meeting."
Usually, the "other business"
consists of a financial report, a
director's report and a very superficial review of F.S.A.'s already
approved budget. Th e membership
body consists of 2f) individuals;
seven each from the faculty,
administration and undergraduate
student body, and four graduate
students.
The undergraduates, led by S.A.
President Dave Neufeld and VicePresident Lamport, attempted to
have this changed also. But the
more conservative elements of the
administration spoke out against
itudents getting increased power on
)olh the membership and directors
)oards, so the motion was with
Irawn by Lamport as a compr>mise.
