T h e 1 9 7 0 m i d - t e r m e l e c t i o n s seem t o have given

Ira V. Devoe, head m a i n t e n a n c e supervisor, provided a n u m b e r of
reasons for the prevalence of rats on t h e c a m p u s this year. A c c o r d i n g
t o t h e laws of n a t u r e , r a t s are q u i t e h a p p y living o u t in t h e o p e n fields
during the w a r m e r m o n t h s . But as soon as t h e fall season rolls a r o u n d ,
these r o d e n t s are forced t o find w a r m e r s u r r o u n d i n g s — such as
b a s e m e n t s a n d garbage pails.
Mr. Devoe also p o i n t e d o u t t h a t t h e large a m o u n t of people a r o u n d
c a m p u s p r o d u c e s a p r o p o r t i o n a t e l y large a m o u n t of garbage w h i c h
a t t r a c t s rats if left strewn a r o u n d . T h e s e factors he labeled m o r e or
less " n o r m a l , " and t h a t relatively little could b e d o n e t o prevent the
rats from c o m i n g o u t i n t o t h e o p e n in their search for food and
•lie Iter.
T h e a b u n d a n c e of r a t s this year, w h i c h he claimed t o b e "definitely
a b n o r m a l , " relates t o the fact t h a t S U N Y A is still u n d e r g o i n g growing
pains. AN c o n s t r u c t i o n p r o c e e d s b o t h o n I n d i a n Q u a d and at t h e field

t h e r e is relatively n o place t o go e x c e p t i n t o o p e n garbage pails ( w h i c h
are usually rare) and buildings.
T h e university ( t h r o u g h t h e Buildings a n d G r o u n d s D e p a r t m e n t ) has
an e x t e r m i n a t i o n c o n t r a c t , and e x t e r m i n a t o r s are at w o r k a r o u n d the
c a m p u s o n a regular basis. A l t h o u g h h e d i d n ' t k n o w e x a c t l y w h a t kind
of poison w a s being used, Mr. Devoe said t h a t t h e y were "selective
p o i s o n s " which were o k a y e d by the university after careful analysis.
In any event, e x t e r m i n a t i o n is restricted t o buildings and n e a r b y
vicinities, owing t o t h e fact t h a t a n y a t t e m p t t o kill all of t h e rats

Council Grants WSUA

T h e controversy over WSUA's b u d g e t has finally e n d e d . T h e s t a t i o n
will receive a $22,.146.43 s u p p l e m e n t a l b u d g e t as a result of last
T h u r s d a y ' s Central Council meeting.
T h e action came despite the a t t e m p t of two council m e m b e r s t o
invalidate the vole on the m o t i o n by walking out of the d e b a t e in an
a t t e m p t to reduce the n u m b e r p r e s e n t below t h a t of a q u o r u m .
Despite their a t t e m p t t h e q u o r u m r e m a i n e d intact.
T h e tenor of the d e b a t e c o n t r a s t e d sharply with the t u m u l t u o u s
discussion of last week which bad e n d e d in t h e defeat of WSUA's
budget. Allegations of m i s m a n a g e m e n t had led m a n y council m e m b e r s
to believe that the executive staff of WSUA could n o t be " t r u s t e d "
will) the additional monies.
An additional specification of the bill - which was not included in
last week's defeated bill — was that " a detailed e x p l a n a t i o n of all
e x p e n d i t u r e s over $ 1 0 0 be a t t a c h e d to t h e voucher request s u b m i t t e d
to S t u d e n t A s s o c i a t i o n . " This in effect m e a n t t h a t sizeable e x p e n d i tures will have to be approved by t h e vice-president of S t u d e n t
T h e vote that defeated the bill at the previous week's m e e t i n g was
10-10-6 while the vote that passed t h e hill was 1 7-T*-L>.
It was n o t clear exactly w h a t m o t i v a t e d so m a n y council m e m b e r s
lo switch their votes. It was a p p a r e n t however that m a n y c o u n c i l
m e m b e r s were dissatisfied with the confused and t u m u l t u o u s discussion at the previous meeting. Council m e m b e r s also argued that t h e
alleged " h a d f a i t h " on the part of the ratlin's si,tit bad t r a n s f o r m e d
itself, S o m e council m e m b e r s expressed belief that the staff s h o w e d

After the meeting the staff expressed enthusiasm a b o u t their plans

Herbert Stein, a member of the Council of Economic Advisors,
said that the nation could return to near-full employment by the
middle of 1972 and still retard inflation, if wage increases were to
be cut somewhat. Stein believes that the goal can be accomplished
without government intervention in the economy. He said that
the laws of American capitalism, instead, will repair the damaged
According to a New York Times report, the Vietman veteran,

must return to American society as quietly as they left. Gone are
the victory parades, brass bands, and cheering crowds for the

EXPERIENCE IN TOWN!" wiiiiamWoii.cue
For the past seven years, WSUA
has been operating from Bru
bacher Hall at the downtown
campus. Its staff, however, has
wanted to move uptown since
1965 and hopefully by January 1,
1971, they will be stationed in
room 316 of the Campus Cenler.
There are many reasons why
such a move is imperative. Each
year attracting volunteers gets
harder and harder, for except, for
those who are interested in becoming disc jockeys, no one is
willing to travel downtown to
help out with the paper work.
The studio itself is too hot and
too small to accomodate both the
broadcasting and the production
of news at the same time; there's
also a shortage of storage sp;ice
for equipment and records.
More importantly, since most of
the campus news occurs uptown,
it would be much easier to be
stationed nearer to where the
story breaks than to have to first
travel from downtown to gel first
hand information.
With these disadvantages in
mind, it was decided that WSUA
would meve uptown. The original
plan was to move the entire
station to the Campus Center, but
because of financial reasons, room
316 will be a temporary spot until
the West Podium Extension is
built and WSUA will be permanently located there.
Right now, its staff is wailing
for the University to begin construction of the walls which will
divide room 316 into three
smaller divisions. Central headquarters will still be downtown
where most of the broadcasting
will take place, except between
the hours of 6:00 a.m. to 2:00
p.m. when broadcasting will lie
coming directly from room 1116
WSUA has already ordered
much of the equipment needed
for their new location. Included in
this order were new amp lifers lor

Mandatory Student Tax Is Still An Issue
by Bob Warner
News Editor
Arthur Levitt, who has just been
elected for his fifth term as Comptroller of New York, has been
active in regard to the audit and
investigation of State University
student governments for the past
year. Although in 1968 he issued
a memorandum calling for the
Board of Trustees not to interfere
with student association auditing,
he repealed that in September
after conducting several audits of
student funds.
While he called for vesting in
students "through democratic
methods, such maximum power
to regulate their own affairs as
may be consistent with public
policy," he called at the same
time for "prudent (university)

Levitt is fairly lenient towards
student associations, but he does
not believe that the student budgets should be within the sphere
of extra-curricular activities
though be admits that the lure of
fiscal responsability is not easy to
Levitt's solution might be the
mandating of a voluntary student
tax, but he conceded that this
approach may be far too simplistic. "Only the University can
decide," said Levitt.
He has also carefully audited
student government books for any
malfeasance. For the most part,
he found that student governments' expenditures have been in
order. "This is ample evidence
that student organizations are
capable of responsible self-management."
He termed Now Paltz's budgetary p r o c e d u r e s " n o ticeabl y
weak," while he commends Albany for its "business-like operations." However, he noted that
"several budgetary allocations at
Albany" were challengeable. (He
referred to Stringer's litigation.)
Levitt has recommended that
the student fee be made voluntary, or if it is kept mandatory,
the fee should be reduced. He also
has stated that because students
are apathetic towards student gov
ernments, and turn out to vote in
low numbers for officers and referendums, the University has a
good case to make the fee voluntary. The Comptroller does see
advantages to a mandatory fee,
however, such as the practical
financial framework.

the recent directive of the Chancellor of the State University providing administrative supervision
and controls over student governThe commission has recommended to Chancellor Ernest
Boyer and the Board of Trustees
that not only should there be no
mandatory student assessment
tax, but that a student referendum should be held on each campus to decide whether there
should be a tax at all. The commission's resolution also called for
a "student* elected board of managers" to prepare a "unit budget,"
which would be put to the various
student bodies across the state, to
either accept or reject in its entirety.
Mandatory student taxes have

In recent ASP articles probing the FSA organization it is repeatedly stated t h a t FSA profits are
being used for the " m a i n t e n a n c e and operation of

To the Editor,
Many s t u d e n t s have been a n n o y e d this year by the
alterations F o o d Service has m a d e t o the cafeteria.
(The blocking of all entrances and exits except one.)
This has been d o n e , obviously, to keep non-contract

'Welcome to the Saturday Night of Gold...."
by Tom Clingan
An ASP Feature
Surprising as it may seem, there are people on this
campus who don't even know we have a radio
station. This might have been excusable last year
when the signal was lost on uptown quads for
periods of a month or more, but it seems rather
indefensible now that Dutch and Colonial each have
new transmitters and State's is only two years old.
WSUA now comes in as well as other AM stations, if
not better.
First you have to find Brubacher Hall. If you've
ever been downtown, it's across from WaterburyAlden, only you have to enter from the far side,
which has these pillars. So you go in, take the steps
to your left, and make another left at the stairs'
end. Go down the hall thru the doors into the Snack
Bar. Yeah. Snack bar. Rest up after the long
journey—have a thick shake (they cost $0.35, but
they're hand-made—not like in the Campus Center).
Anyway, the Radio Station. Go thru the other set
of doors into a very large game room. Also very
empty,which makes it bigger. Over in one corner is
this place that used to be a storage closet. It still is,
only now it stores a radio station.
It's 1 a.m. on a Sunday morning and it's about 30
degrees outside. But in that storage closet it's still
Saturday and the temperature usually runs about
85. The sound hits you as you enter. Monitor
speakers playing what's going out on the air. Eric
Lonschein is listening to the next single before cuing
it up. Someone in the other studio is playing
something more recent very loud. The UPI machine
makes that noise that you always hear in the
background on News shows. Rosenberg is on the
"request line" with someone who wants "Romeo
and J u l i e t " but doesn't know by whom. "Shut the
door," says Eric and Marc pushes it closed with his
foot. "Anybody know who did the big version of
"Romeo and
Juliet?" "Henry Mancini," says
Lustig, as he sort of watches the UPI machine
without really reading it. Phone rings again. "SUA,"
drones Rosenberg, forgetting the "W." The "Onthe-Air" light goes out and Eric opens the door to
let in what little cool air remains in the station.
This is the main studio, Studio A. All music shows
and most of everything else originate here. Eight
feet by ten feet, with two walls of shelves containing the bulk of one of the best record libraries in the
country. You have to stand on a stool to reach the
top row. The console and door fill the other two
walls. Two turntables, 4 cartridge tape players, a
"board," tape recorder and microphone. And a
stool for the jockey to sit on. Dividing the room and
behind one turntable is a cart rack holding the
station'8 usual fare: recorded cuts from albums.
Usual—not tonight. Tonight it's all old singles—
"oldies but goodies," the jingle goes. And each has
to be found, stacked, cued-up, played, logged, and
replaced. This goes on steadily for five hours. Every
Saturday. Inside a former storage closet in a
downtown hall.
And people listen. Requests are steady until the
show ends at 4 a.m. It's 3:15, and Eric announces
that he'll give a free album to anyone who can tell
him what the number one song in Singupore is. The
phone rings immediately. And 8 calls later (and
after a hint) somebody wins. It goes on like this
until the show ends. People listen, alone and in
pairs, suites and floors, all the way until 4. "There's
always someone listening—even at 4 a.m. on an off
night like Tuesday. Sleepless, rapping with friends,
cramming. There's always somebody." But there's
more than one on Saturdays.
"Anybody know who did the big version of 'Romeo and Juliet' ?"
MOST MUSIC PROCAMS originate from Studio A, WSUA's main
studio, where Assistant Program Director Mike Sakellarides is pictured
presenting his show.
"Eric, why do you spend five hours
Saturday night?"
"I like doing it."
WSUA 640 is the carrier current radio station at
Albany State, broadcasting from the Downtown
campus, specifically Brubacher Hall. Recently the
station was granted a $22,000 additional appropriation from Central Council to move in pari to the
Campus Center. The appropriation caused much
controversy. One of the things which was noticed
was the fact that most people don't know very
much about WSUA.
The programming is, as in most stations, primarily
music. WSUA usually plays album cuts—pieces
taken from current albums culled from the library
of recent LP's. WSUA is making an effort to
program different types of music as well—Friday
night, for example, is all soul. From 10 to 12 p.m.
only Latin Soul is aired. Saturday night is also
unique—after 11 p.m. only requested old singles are
played. Sunday night is increasingly being taken
over by News programming, a good example of
which is the recent news special on Pete Jones.
Occasionally the regular schedule is interrupted for
events of importance such as the recent election, or
the infamous draft lotteries.
"Thanks for the answer."
The shows are not planned as to which songs must
be played—this is up to the jockey. He is told only
what must be included in his show—Campus Happenings, commercials, station identifications. The
music is up to him—but he is obligated to log every
record or tape. The log is used to make up record
surveys as well as to keep track of what's been
Carrier Current
is a method of transmission
which uses the electrical system of a building to
carry the signal, instead of an antenna. Thats
why you can't get WSUA on your portable- it
isn't plugged in. The problem is here that it
costs about 10 times as much to buy and is
much harder to keep up. The only good thing
With the opening of a morning studio uptown
about 2 months from now, WSUA will broadcast
each day beginning at 6 a.m. After 2 p.m., the show
will originate downtown, and eventually will go all
night with a four hour prerecorded show from 2
a.m. to 6 a.m. Needless to say, this will open up
many new shows for which new DJ's are needed.
Radio is the type of activity which usually draws
many students at a school of this size. The reason
for a lack of such participation and the general
apathy towards the station can be attributed to its
downtown location. This will be remedied partially
by the morning uptown broadcasts, and hopefully
by an influx of people willing to make WSUA a
better station. The programming ideas begun this
time will continue to fruition if dedicated students
pilch in.

And Willi the move uptown, even as partial as it is,
will come plenty of work for the Engineering
department of WSUA. Without engineers you don't
have a station. If you've gol some experience in
electronics (or even if you don't) you might
consider the work. It's rewarding to see a definite
goal achieved and engineering is working all the time
on just such goals.

lately? Here's why: he quit.
You don't believe me, I see. You sneer and make coarse gestures.
B u t it's true ail the same. Not one college president in the entire
United States came back to work this fall. They chickened out, every
last one.
A few will return: they're just taking a year oft to study karate.
B u t most aren't coming back ever. And can you blame them? What
kind of work is this for a dignified, elderly person —cowering under his
desk all day long, wearing bullet-proof underwear, hiring food tasters,
getting into fistfights with sophomore girls?
I t ' s hard to realize that only three or four years ago a college
president was a figure of respect and regard —yea, reverence even! I'll
admit of course that undergraduates were much more tractable in
those dayB because, as you will no doubt recall, sex and drugs Had not
yet been introduced from Europe.
B u t even so, they were lively rascals, yesterday's undergrads,
scampering all over campus on their little fat legs, cheering and hallooing, identifying lichens, conjugating verbs. B u t no matter how engrossed they were in their games and sports, whenever Prexy happened by, they would instantly run over to kiss his vest and sing 21
choruses of the Alma Mater. Ah, it was a lovely and gracious time,
now gone, alas, forever!
Incidentally, you'll notice that I used the word " P r e x y . " T h a t of
course is what college presidents are always called, as I'm sure you
knew. B u t did you know that trustees are always called "Trixie?"
Similarly, deans are always called " D o x y " except of course in the
South where they are always called "Dixie." Associate professors of
course are called "Axy-Pixie." Hockey coaches of course are called
"Hootchy-Cootchy," Students are called "Algae."
And Miller High Life is called " T h e Champagne of Beers." I mention Miller High Life because I am paid to write these columns by the
brewers of Miller High Life. They are, I must say, a very relaxed kind
of employer. They lei me write whatever t want to. There's no censorship, no pressure, and no taboos. In fact, I don't even have to mention
Miller High Life unless I feel like it. Naturally, the brewers are a little
disappointed if I don't mention it, but they never complain. They just
unite bravely and stop my check.

Today, as it happens, I do feel like mentioning Miller High Life.
And what better way than to quote these immortal lines* from Ozymandiaa by the beloved Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, or " T h e Swedish
Nightingale," as he was better known as? I quote:
When an ill wind blows,
A »d keeps getting iller,
Then a wise man knows
It is time for Miller.
What peppy hops! What groovy malts!
No beer can do what Miller does!

his offer a n d was t u r n e d d o w n .
Concert Board did n o t have t h e

on t h e three previous w e e k e n d s
and a n o t h e r s c h e d u l e d for this
weekend. It was felt security officers and t h e janitorial staff deserved a rest. Ironically, these
same people found t h e m s e l v e s
working t h e Airplane c o n c e r t ;
they never did get t h e e x p e c t e d
reprive. T h e J u n i o r Class d i d n ' t
have the necessary m a n p o w e r either.
In any event, S.A. officials were
displeased over t h e fact t h a t large
numbers of n o n - s t u d e n t s w e r e
given access t o t i c k e t s al t h e
expense of t h e s t u d e n t b o d y .
S.A. Vice President Mike Lampert told this r e p o r t e r ; " I t ' s had

let it happen a g a i n . "
But J u n i o r Class President T o m
LaBarbera, w h o w a s u l t i m a t e l y
responsible for having t h e class
sponsor the event, disagreed. " W e
felt we could give s t u d e n t s an

he said. He
claimed t h a t s t u d e n t s benefitted
in that they were able t o secure a
limited n u m b e r of t i c k e t s for t h e
reduced rate of $ 3 . 5 0 .
But t h e p r o b l e m lies in t h e fact
that the profits from the event
will go to t h e A r d e e P r o d u c t i o n s ,
rather that the Class of ' 7 2 . T h u s ,

this by
claiming that s t u d e n t s would not
have purchased many of t h e available tickets. This was t h e only
way s t u d e n t s could get a c h a n c e
t o hear t h e Airplane, and t h a t t h e
will probably
m o n e y a n y w a y after the damages
to t h e gym are paid. " H e p r o b a b l y
w o n ' t c o m e o u t with a d i m e , "
LaBarbera said.
Nevertheless, S t u d e n t Association officials were critical of the
fact t h a t a private p r o m o t e r was
b r o u g h t in, and t h a t s t u d e n t interests were sacrificed for e c o n o m i c
expediency. They pointed out
t h a t m a n y s t u d e n t s were forced to
buy tickets at t h e full price of
after the cheaper tickets
were sold o u t . This allowed t h e
p r o m o t e r t o increase his profit.
For t h e Albany S t a t e s t u d e n t ,
the c o n c e r t , in perspective, appeared to be a poor bargain indeed. S o m e were injured — including LaBarbera, w h o suffered a
gash in t h e leg and an usher w h o
was p u m m e l e d by potential gate
crashers. Some had t o pay a high
price for tickets. O t h e r s were
caught in t h e crowd crush outside
the g y m doors. And, of course,
the profits (if a n y ) is something
the s t u d e n t s will never see.

senior quarterback Bill Flanagan.
The complex triple-option offense
which Coach Ford is using this
year depends heavily on an experienced quarterback who can
quickly read the moves of the
defensive tackle and end, and then
make the appropriate handoff or
keep it himself. Flanagan, despite
not having great physical ability
was able to do this and thus made
the Dane offense go much in the
manner that James Street moved
Darrel Royal's Texas team last
year. Rick Petty and Gordie
Kupperstein don't quite have the
experience to do this yet though
Petty, who has matured under
fire, is coming on strong in this
respect. Look for Rick to start
this weekend.
Coach Ford stated that, "The
team gave 100 % at all times. It's
just that too often a block was
missed or a fumble made." Players
cited for playing a fine game were
Steve Finn at defensive tackle,
Nick Conte at linebacker, and
John Johnson at cornerback. On
offense tacke Phil Lord, halfback
Bernie Boggs and quarterback
Petty rated a nod from their
coach for fine efforts.

Coach Bob Munsey assessed his
cross-countrymen's season as being "only good. Virus attacks
were what prevented an outstanding year." In retrospect, thoug,
the Harriers' 10-3 record included
losses to three top-rated t e a m s Colgate, C.W. Post and LeMoyne.
It was definitely the team's toughest schedule in its nine years and
their best meets as a team this
year were against RPI, Siena, and
the Coast Guard. The coach noted
that the men won often and ran
well early in the season before
being bogged down at the close.
The biggest disappointment of the
year was winding up with the loss
to LeMoyne and the poor running
against Colgate where the Harriers
had a chance at an upset. That
loss, to Colgate's best team ever,
stole a great deal of initiative
away from the Danes. "In cross
country, without great depth, one
or two men getting injured ci-n
really hurt a team," said Munsey,
"and that's what happened to us."
In reviewing the varsity runners,
Dennis Hacked ran very well but
had his ups and downs. He ran no
truly outstanding races but had
several good ones. He's a junior
and will be very tough to heal
next year. Nick De Marco was
"the brightest mark of the team"
in Coach Munsey's opinion and
along with fellow freshman John
Koch they will form a formidable
duo in years to come. Co-captains
Pat Gepfert and Bill Meehan, kept
the Learn in order and fired up but
the "hard luck guy had to be John
Comerford, a sophomore, and local boy from Catholic Central in
Troy." He ran much too hard in
the summer and when it came to
the actual season he was "stale,"
related Munsey. "Later on he
came down with a deep throat
infection and never did reach the
times he had run in the summer.
Stateness refers to a mental state
where a peak is reached followed
by a mental regression, while
physically speaking, nothing happens. Larry Frederick, who was
the Danes' lop runner in 1968,
had his leg broken very badty last
year and had it in a cast for eleven
months. In effect, he was far off

Future Uncertain For Harriers
by John Carter
The Great Dane football team
invaded the north country Saturday and was repulsed by a fired
up Plattsburgh eleven 28-0. The
long breakaway run proved to be
Albany's undoing. As Coach Bob
Ford stated, "We played two
games Saturday. In one of them
our defense gave up 200 plus
yards and 28 points in four plays.
In the other we held them to 130
yards in fifty-eight plays." Unfortunately the first game for overshadowed the second because the
offense proved too inconsistent to
mount a sustained drive.
Quarterback Dee DeNato broke
away 54 yards for the first
Plattsburgh score early in the first
period. Keith Wheeler scored from
60 yards out later in that stanza.
In the third quarter halfback John
Carpenter capped a 70 yard 12
play drive with a 23 yard scoring
run. The last Cardinal tally came
in the fourth quarter on a 55 yard
run by second string quarterback
Gary Ross.
The Dane offense sputtered because of numerous small mistakes.
Fumbles, missed blocks, etc. precluded a Dane score. One of the
main reasons the offense proved
to be ineffective was the loss of

General Electric's been
building bigger jet engines
for 30 years.
When are they going
to start building cleaner
jet engines?
Not many people know that
General Electric started building a jet
engine in 1941. America's first jet
That jet produced only 1200
pounds of thrust.
Our newest jet, for the DC-10,
produces around 50,000 pounds
of thrust.
In the early days of jet aviation,
the important thing was thrust.
But suddenly our skies are filled
with jets. And, suddenly, jet pollution
is a major problem.
General Electric tackled it head
on when building the DC-10 engines.
And we accomplished two things.
When you see the DC-10 take
to the air, you'll see no black marks
against the sky. Because the engines
make virtually no smoke.
Of course, there's more lo jet
exhaust than just smoke. Our goal is
someday to make jets run totally clean.
Another problem w i t h jets is
noise. If you've ever lived anywhere
near an airport, we don't have to
tell you that.
General Electric has been
working on noise, too.
GE was chosen by the federal
government to help solve this
problem for the aviation industry. At
present, we know of no way a
powerful turbofan engine can be
made noiseless. But we've made
progress in that direction.
The DC-IOengines, for instance,
arc quieter than any jet engines on
the passenger planes of the Sixties
Quieter, even though they're more
than three times as powerful.
We have more work to do
before we'll satisfy all the people
concerned about jel p o l l u t i o n ,
ourselves included. But because
we've been working at it since the
mid-Fifties, before it was widely
recognised as much of a problem,
we've already crossed some
important hurdles.
Why are we running this ad?
We're running this ad, and
others like it, to tell you the things
General Electric is doing to solve
the problems of man and his
environment today.
The problems concern us
because ihey concern you. We're a
business and you are potential
customers and employees.
But there's another, more
important reason. These problems
will affect the future of this country
and this planet. We have a stake in
that future. As businessmen. And,
simply, as people.
We invite your comments.

A specific d a t e was set. u p , however, for t h e o p e n i n g of the center- December

will be infants.
Mrs. Blair B a r r e t t , d i r e c t o r of
the D a y Care C e n t e r , has said that
financial aid will be t h e basis lor

of t h e high c o s t of baby-sitting in

range of income can still apply.
At t h e p r e s e n t time, m o r e
applications have been processed
for infants than for older children.
T h e a p p a r e n t reason for t h e number of infant a p p l i c a t i o n s is the
fact that A l b a n y ' s Day Care Center is a l m o s t u n i q u e in t h e handling of babies as y o u n g as six
m o n t h s . Very few facilities are
available t o house babies so t h a t a

infants a t t h e c e n t e r will have
their o w n r o o m e q u i p p e d with

How would you control robberies on campus?
Frankly, I don't think that that type of crime can
be helped by the trippling or quadrupling of the
security force...I don't think the students want a
uniformed security force on every floor.
Suppose the instances of armed robbery increased...
How do you think we could control that without
putting other students uptight?
You mean without arming the security force?
Well, I'll ask you that, then: Do you think we
should arm the Security Force?
I agree with the trustees, or whoever made this
regulation; I think it's possible to do effective police
work—crime detection, arrests, all the traditional
facets of police work—being unarmed...It's one
thing tc conjure up all sorts of ideas about what
might happen: Certainly the Security Police could
not handle someone holed up with a rifle or n pistol
shooting at the place; you'd probably have to call
on outside police forces. But to use that as a basis
for arming the Security Force? How likely is that
event to occur? Not very likely.
On what grounds might you call in local police?
As I understand it, it will not be me who calls in the
outside police force.
Would you be in favor of a student review board or
grievance cormittee?
I think so, but I think also that there's a bit of a
problem, since everybody on the Security Force
with the exception of myself is under the State Civil
Here again you're going along guidelines that you
really have no control over?
Yes. The only other word you could come up with
would be "advisory," and 1 think a lot of students
might get upset at that word because it means, well
"we're put up as symbols and we don't have any
other role." That's just the way it is under the Civil
Under those conditions, then, would you favor it or
do you think it would be ineffective and useless?
No, certainly it wouldn't be ineffective or useless;
even though it would be "advisory," it would
depend on what the Director and Assistant Director
of Security thought of it, and what backing that
board got from the president of the university^ the
administration. From everything I've read, the
administration seems to be quite favorably disposed
toward having such a board.
What affective experiences have you had as u parole
officer dealing with young people?
The age group I dealt with as a parole officer was
from 17 to 30...Many of the younger ones, let's say
19, 18 or so...started off in juvenile court; I used to
say, "I didn't get caught, that's the only reason I'm
sitting on this side of the table carrying a badge and
they're on the other side." I found that what they
desired wasn't too different from what I wanted
myself, as a human being.
What do you think a security force's role would be
in controlling drugs?
From some of the things I've observed in metro
politan police departments, there's an emphasis on
arresting users; this is wasted effort, it gets you good
headlines...My personal feeling is that any investigative efforts should be directed toward the pusher. I
think the Security Force at the University is strictly
a functioning portion of the University administration; in other words, the Security Department does
not make up its own rules as to what it will enforce,
what it will not enforce.
So on most problems of security policy you'd
follow the administration line?
I think we wonid have to; because I think 1 see a lot
of dangers in the United Stales today if police
departments tend to feel themselves solely answerable to themselves for their actions.
How do you think students should get involved in
the Security Force? Do you have any ideas on
communication* between students and Security?
1 think we should bring the roles of the security
officer and student closer together, for instance by
Do you feel than a security force might he able to
influence community police, or make a good
impression oon Albany itself?
it would have to he the indirect method; 1 don't
think the police department should he in the role of
leading anybody lo do anything. It's just not a
function of the police forces, because police forces
are servants, strictly that, arms of the executive.
But as an individual, perhaps yes.... 1 think that if
you could work on getting the majority of the
student body registered to vote, you might have
much more effect.
.1/ present there are no files on student activists on
rumpus; do you feel this might serve the needs of
the Security Police Force, keeping files on the
students who might cause trouble'
The only thing I can answer to that is, it often gets
out of band; because it's very difficult, well it's
impossible to predict what someone is going to do.
You get a firebrand orator; is he actually going to
do what he says? You don't knuw. What happens is,
most departments, in order to play il sale,
catagori/.e everybody as potentially dangerous radicals and they keep a file on thorn, I think that's
been much abused....
Again the Security Force is .in arm of the
executive, and I don't think they want to start
maintaining a list of potential radicals.
Well, how about to protect yourself The Security
Police might have personal feelings about this.
1 don't think that the file actually does much good
other than just create a lot of ill reeling right now.
You know, under the law of the land, you get
arrested for acts that you do, specific actions that
violate one of the laws, not for what vou say or wht
you think or what you write about.

hiring students as security officers or on the other
hand by encouraging security officers to go to
school for a degree. This, I think, would be very
helpful: to bring the two rotes together, so that the
Security Force is not looked on as an alien body.
James R. Williams, 29, was named last month to the new post of
Director of Campus Security (ASP.October 23, 1970). Mr. Williams,
chosen unanimously by a search committee chaired by Robert Stierer,
Assistant Vice President for Management and Planning was the
youngest of the dozens of candidates considered for the post
The selection of Mr. Williams put an end to a period of controversy
during which several students objected to the methods of the search
committee; many of the other candidates being considered were
specialists in military engineering, experienced in Southeastern Asian
Mr. Williams is experienced in various areas of social and police work
in his home town of Indianapolis. He has served as a parole officer for
the Department of Corrections, a caseworker for the Department of
Public Welfare, and his present job, the associate director of the
Human Rights Commission, He is on the board of directors of PACE,
Inc., a United Fund agency advocating correctional reform.
A graduate of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point,
Long Island, Mr. Williams is now a lieutenant in the naval reserve and
a candidate for an M.A. in history and political science at Butler
Although he does not take office here at the University until
December 3, Mr. Williams agreed to an interview with the ASP this
past weekend, during a short stay in Albany. This reporter found him
willing and able, in the brief time he had for discussion, to respond
directly to a wide range of sensitive issues.
Below are excerpts covering the salient topics of that interview.
^ ^
Do you feet that arrests are useful in controlling a
gathering that seems to be getting out of hand?
That might be very provocatory; in a crowd, if the
police observe an individual throw a firebomb, for
instance, it might be more harmful at that point to
go in and try to take him out of that crowd than it
would be just to identiby him and arrest him quietly
later. To answer what your question implies, the
police department does not have the authority to
ignore state law, to say we will not enforce this
particular state law.
Do you feel we should have an undercover agent?
No; well, again, you can't just completely rule them
out, but the abuses of using undercover agents are
dangerous in themselves.
I think I'm very much in favor of-what are they
talking about now- "blazer boys"? Because the
Crime Commission report of 1965 or '66 (recommended three levels of police officers; the "police
aide" who would help in a lot of the dirty work that
police do now- taking down reports, getting cats out
of trees; and then there would be a Community
Service Officer, the highest level police officer you
could be.... A kind of quasi-social worker, so to
speak; he'd have to be college-educated, this type of
So you'd like more plainsclothesmen, but plainclot hen men whom we know?
Yes, whom you would know. Apparently these
positions, regardless of what my opinions are, have
been approved by the state.
Hut these would be known
Oh, yes.
However, they wouldn't wear uniforms-'
They'd wear, from what 1 understand, easily identifiable blazers and gray trousers; they'd stand out,
and even if they didn't stand out the students would
know who they are.
Unrest has been exaggerated, I'll just say that, if was
played up across the nation for the November
elections, exaggerated totally out of proportion to
what actually happened.
And I'm not in favor of using potential arguments
of what might happen-Centainly a group of 10,000
students can be extremely destructive, and you can
imagine all soils of things that mighl happen if an
unruly crowd of 10,000 students got out of hand.
You could use this as a justification for acquiring
helicopters, tanks, everything.
Well, that's what I'm trying to imagine, though,
right now
Well, I don't want to imagine that, because I think
it's a street where there's no end; the end would be
Police State, probably.
Hut certainly a police force should be prepared for
something like that
Again, this is the argument used across the country
by those who are currying "dunvdum" bullets in
their rifles, and even in their pistols. You know,
"We're ready, we're prepared." Hut then you've got
all Ibis armament and il becomes a self fulfilling
prophecy. You come up on situations heavily armed
that in the past were dealt with rather routinely and
nothing much happened; hut now you see il as u
riot and so you over-react.

Mayor Defends Tobin
by Neitl B
Excerpts of ASP's interview with Mayor Corning
appear on page eight.
Mayor Erastus Corning defended Tobin Packing Company Thursday
and said that the alleged polluter is "doing everything that the
present state of technology will permit them to d o " to correct the
dumpage of waste materials into Patroon Creek.
The major charged that numerous other organizations are equally
responsible for the pollution of Patroon Creek as Tobin'sand cited
SUNY Albany, Killip Launderers and Dry Cleaners and Normanskill
Septic Tank Cleaners. He also claimed that Manning Paper Company
of Green Island produces "over half the entire amount of industrial
pollution that goes into the Hudson River."
With the projected completion of the Patroon Creek Intercept and
the Albany Sewage Treatment plants in 1972, the mayor said, all
pollutors cited "will be completely in keeping with the rules and
regulations on water standards for both Patroon Creek and the
Hudson River,"
In effect, therefore, Mayor Corning claimed that all the pollutors in
Albany County - whose total pollution has caused the Stale Health
Department to lisl Albany as a "major" polluter - are doing their
utmost lo correct the situation and that the city is doing its utmost as
The mayor made his comments in an interview requested by him
with the Albany Student Press and WSUA. Following the publication
-f the allegations against Tobin in the November 3rd issue of the
ASP, the mayor had let it be known that he wished to present his side
of the story.
Mayor Corning stated thai all organizations responsible for the
pollulion had agreed to join the Albany sewage treatment project
when completed, and he charged that, as a result, the proposed
boycott against Tobin was "entirely unfair."
He acknowledged, however, that plans for the two sewage
treatment plants have not yet been approved by the stale and federal
government and that the city "couldn't do a thing until that review is
complete," He admitted us well that state authorities had not yet been
approached on I he mailer of foes involved in connecting Albany
Stale's sewerage with the proposed county system.
Of Tobin, Mayor Corning said,"They are recapturing their fats,
faking out solids, they are providing some preliminary treatment
before waste goes Into the Patroon Creek. They are doing everything
that the present state of technology would permit them to do."
The New York Slate Health Department has charged Tobin with
being (he second worst polluter in the Albany Area. Asked to explain

An investigation conducted by this newspaper
during the past week has shown that Albany State
University dumps thousands of gallons of untreated,
raw sewage into Patroon Creek and the Hudson
River daily. The action is in direct violation of
Article 1 2 of the Public Health Law.
Mr. Weist, the Regional Water Pollution Control
Engineer for the Albany region was unable to give a
specific estimate of the amount of sewage involved.
"But you can make a crude estimate of 50 gallons
of sewage per person per day," he told this reporter.
And after considering the amount of garbage and
sewage produced by the cafeterias, residence halls,
and toilets on campus, he stated: "I would say the
amount is pretty well up there."
Thus Albany State finds itself a prime polluter of
Patroon Creek and the Hudson River. This places it
on a par with other major polluters in the Albany
area • including Tobin's.
The investigation involved interviews with Mayor
Erastus Corning, civil engineers, and officials of
both the Albany County and New York State
Health Departments. The extent of the pollution
problem and the university's role in il came to light
only after Mayor Corning telephoned President
Louis Benezet last week, reading to an article on
Patroon Creek which appeared in the "Albany
Student Press." The article detailed the rule Tobin's
Meatpacking Company plays in polluting the Creek.
Corning stated that the university also playes a
major role in the destruction of the watorway.
Benezef reacted by appointing Plant Supervisor
John Buckoff and Walter Tisdale to study the
problem and make a report to H. David Van Dyke
in the Community Relations Office, Tisdale is
responsible for campus planning.
A study of the maps of Albany County's sewage
and drainage system conducted by this reporter
reveals that a sewer pipe carries all the sewage from
the north part of the campus (State and Colonial
Quads) into a manhole on the north side of
Washington Avenue. A pipe runs from this manhole
west into the City of Albany's Patroon Creek Sewer
System, which leads directly into Patroon Creek,
west of Russell Road. The "creek," which more
closely resembles a floating drainage ditch, empties
info the Hudson.
The sewage from the southern part of the campus
is carried through a twelve inch sewer pipe into the
system of the New York State Office Campus
complex. From there, it moves into a manhole on
Western Ave., opposite Pinehurst Avenue. Eventually this sewage is also dumped into the Hudson,
flowing past an inadequate waste treatment plant
that cannot handle the daily load.
