Controversy later arose when
Newfeld criticized the proposed
lots, saying they would ruin "the
quality and nature of living," and
would make it impossible "to
enjoy campus life with a car rolling in at seven in the morning
underneath your window."
Tisdale said, however, that to
provide for the necessary parking
space, certain areas had to be
used. He further said that the new
lots will only increase the total
to 6000, not the 8000 necessary
for 1975. Stating a desire to avoid
additional encroachment upon open areas, he expressed confidence
that the remaining 2000 spaces
w o u l d come in the yeL
unapproved two-level garages.
Mr. Tisdale added that the areas
to be used will not lose their
Plans for four new permanent
parking lots have drawn fire from
David Neufeld, President of Student Association. Designed tu
meet the need for 8000 parking
spaces by 1975 (there are 3200
now), were first presented to students at an Educational Policy
Council meeting.
Walter Tisdale, Assistant to the
President for Planning and Development, is the administer most
involved in construction planning.
Mr. Tisdale, present at the meeting, said discussion there resulted
in a proposal for paving the temporary Colonial lot. This has been
accepted and according to President Benezet, the lot will be
paved during Thanksgiving. The
meeting ended with Tisdale "feeling we had an assent."

surrounding trees, and said of the
land to be used, "it's by no means
an ecological area."
The map itself demonstrates
that Neufeld's latter remarks are
not justified. Cars will clearly not
surround the quads. However,
there does remain the fact of an
increase in air and noise pollution
form a more than doubled increase in cars. There is also the
fact of diminishing open areas and
this will increase even with the
While Tisdale has not seriously
considered the possibility, there is
the suggestion that cars should be
limited. Instead of planning for
increased cars, why not study the
possibility of reducing their numbers?
Certainly many students could
be restricted, as on other campuses, as well as faculty and administrators. Car pools might be
feasible for the latter groups.
However, on the question of the
four lots, Mr. Tisdale feels that
student involvement is now "too
late." He feels reconsideration of
the plans would necessarily involve a great loss of time, time
necessary to meet the increased
need for space. He noted that the
present Comprehensive Campus
Plan was a year long effort and
that additional time is consumed
as plans are inspected by the
central office.
That judgment is, though, quite
questionable: if the lots have become an issue, then surely further
discussion must be based on the
fact that students will have to
severely limit their right to cars on
The parking lots will fade as an
issue in a relatively short time.
The far greater issue is that of
future construction on campus.
Mr. Tisdale feels that now is the
time for student involvement in
campus planning. "It will be welcomed," he said, and suggested
that Central Council organize a
group now to meet with him. He
feels strongly that student influence should be felt and has initiated steps to discuss lake area construction with students.
The parking lots, then, represent
far greater importance if the present controversy results in vastly
improved student influence on
State's future.
— T. OmrMMw. Camp*,
The predicted need lor K000 parking spaces by 1975 will be met by
construction of four new permanent parking lots. The additional need lor
space will arise mainly from increases in graduate and commuter students.
On Wednesday of this week, this reporter had the distinct pleasure
of meeting several new residents in Pierce Hall. Unlike most of the
graduate residents in that building, these newcomers carried blocks
and bottles instead of B.A.'s. And it seemed quite apparent that the
first priority of these residents was the mastering of their new
The scene described above clearly refers to the newly instituted Day'
Care Center on the Albany State Campus. The Center as it now stands
in a large sense is the product of demands made by Women's
Liberation on the Administration. The current site of the Center was
determined by a fact-finding committee composed of both
Administration and Women's Liberation. In Addition, both these
groups are represented on the Center's Temporary Board of Directors,
along with parents and concerned outside parties. Yet in a short
period of time the Center has assumed a very professional atmosphere.
The regular Day Care Center staff is composed of one program
director with an M.A., one certified teacher, one registered nurse, a
secretary and ten full-time workers with at least n high school diploma
and some experience in child-care.
Mr.". Blair Barrett, the director of the Day Care Center, explained
the procedure for enrolling a child in the Center. To register a child,
the parents must fill out a formal application. A committee of Social
Services from the School of Social Welfare then interviews the parents
and either accepts or rejects the application. Acceptance is based on
roughly three criteria (a) financial need, (b) the number of children in
the family, and (c) scheduling difficulty of the
In addition, euch child must undergo a thorough physical and no child
with any severe emotional or physical problems will be accepted. It is
hoped to replace this existing Committee by a committee of parents
in the near future.
The financing of the Day Care Center is a best nebulous. At present
the Center is being funded by left over monies in the budget. REcent
talks of budget cut-backs for next year seem to worry the Staff. They
are still hoping to be incorporated into the regular budget in the next
fiscal year. As far as parental contribution is concerned, Mrs. Barrett
pointed out that since the parents of the children are students, it
would be impossible for them to pay $-10 or so a week per child,
which is, the current rate f r private Day Care facilities. Instead the
Welfare Department's sliding scale is used to determine their ability to
The basic cost of running the University Center works out to be
approximately $2000 a year per infant and $1000 a year per preschooler. Most of these funds are needed for staff salaries.
At present there are 2n-,'i0 children enrolled at the Center.
Hopefully this number will be increased to a maximum capacity of
60. Two distinct age groups are handled at the Center. One group
included children from the ages of six months to Iwo-an-half years of
age. The other includes pre-schoolers from the ages of two-and-half to
five years of age.
Mrs. Barrett pointed out thai already many of the University
Departments have asked to observe the children. The staff will only
comply with such requests if the various interested parties consent to
first work in the Center with the children. This gives the children a
chance to better acquaint themselves with outsiders.
Many of the children at the Center are left there close to nine hours
(7:30 to 5:30). In addition, the number of infants exceeds the
number of preschoolers by about four to one. Yet Mrs. Barrett does
not feet that il is unhealthy to separate the child from the parent at
such a young age. The adjustment to the new environment is rapid. In
one sense the Day Care Center at Albany State is a pioneer. This
Center is the only center in the area which will accept children below
the age of two-and-half. On Wednesday, the Center had been open for
only the third day. Yet already the children were crying to slay and
no! to go home.
Pierce Hall, on the downtown campus, is the site of the Child Day
Cure Center now attended by twenty-five to thirty children.

make it retroactive to the beginning of the year. They cited the
unfairness of policy which punishes student parking violators by

Originally introduced together
with the first proposal but voted
upon separately, was a bill
attempting to create a new policy
for disciplining parking violators.
The proposal reading "that individuals who do not pay their
parking fines within 30 days of
notification of such fines shall
have their parking privileges revoked and be subject to having
their vehicles towed away" passed
by a vote of 27 to 15. Several
student senators in opposing the
bill raised the question of whether
or not the percentage of parking

Affairs, 9 faculty members, 6 undergraduate students and 3 graduate students.
A recommendation from the
University Senate to the University Council which would allow
fraternities and sororities to live
off campus and not lose their
recognition as a chartered SUNYA
organization was also passed.
Since 1963 the University Council
of SUNYA hus not recognized
Greek organizations living off
campus thereby denying them the
use of SUNYA facilities. The new
proposal intends to correct this
situation "with the understanding
the University has no legal responsibility for their off campus
housing accommodations."

scheduled class day.
Faced with an acute manpower
shortage and in an effort to combat the spiraling crime rate that
has seen the campus plagued by
car robberies, dorm thefts, and
even armed holdups, SUNYA police arrested a number of suspects
within the past week.
The first arrests occurred lust
Saturday night when a patrolman
observed a Chevrolet sedan cruising in the Dutch Quad parking lot
at 1:00 a.m. with its lights extinguished. The officer had noticed the car on two previous
occasions and so decided to search
it. His work yielded him a small
quantity of marijuana, resin, a
hash pipe, and rolling paper. The
four occupants of-the car—all high
school students and all 17 years
old—were charged with possession
of dangerous drugs. Additionally,
one was charged with loitering.
In the second instance, events
were much more complicated.
Osie Bell, a SUNYA student, was
arrested on November 20 and
charged with criminal trespass and
petty larceny arising from an incident of burglary on campus. He
was released on bail and his case
adjourned until last Monday.

with the admission that virtually
nothing additional has been done
this semester with the problem of
people breaking into cars. The
only hopeful note was that a
earful of people, who were allegedly attempting to vandalize cars
over the Thanksgiving vacation
was apprehended. .The possibility
of relocking or rekeying the entire
university was seriously discussed
because of the large number of
complaints about lost and stolen
master keys. It was also noted
that the number of incidents
(thefts, bomb scares, etc.) has
significantly increased this year.
President Benezet expressed
sympathy for the students closed
out of Psychology, Sociology, and
other courses, but said that thy
problem won't be solved until the
"fad" for such courses dies out.
Part of the problem could he

and compilation of the preference

The Sound of Gold
by B o b Rosenblum
The following albums either are
currently or in the near future will
be on sale at bargain prices in area
department stores and discount
stores. I will try to present such
reviews periodically in an attempt
to reacquaint readers with older
A Question of Balance,
The Moody Blues (Threshold,
T h e Rolling Stones' Beggars
Banquet (Decca L K 4 9 5 5 ) is not
their best album, but Stones fans
should like it, There seems t o be a
thin coating of satire throughout
the album both musically as well
as literarily. There is a good deal
of variety ranging from t h e sardonic Afro C u b a n " S y m p a t h y for
the Devil", t o t h e oriental inspired
" F a c t o r y G i r l " t h e c o u n t r y and
westernish '*Dear D o c t o r , " the
hard r o c k " P a r a c h u t e W o m a n "
the c o u n t r y blues of "Prodigal
S o n " a n d t h e p r o t e s t of " S a l t of
the E a r t h . "
The Soft Machine
C P L P 4 5 0 0 ) is t h e name of an
excellent g r o u p a n d their a l b u m
t h a t deserves wider recognition.
T h e i r songs are consistently imaginative a n d fresh t h a n k s chiefly
t o Kevin Ayers. T h e blend of acid
rock, jazz a n d m o d e r n E u r o p e a n
" s e r i o u s " music provides a rewarding and lasting listening experience.
(Tetragram m a t o n T - 1 1 2 ) is an u n p r e t e n tious, relaxing a l b u m in t h e folk
-rock idiom. J o n Mark is an unexc e p t i o n a l vocalist, b u t he seems t o
feel w h a t he sings. T h e musical
backing is never offensive always
soft. Woodwinds, organ, guitar
a n d d r u m s are used with a good
deal of restraint, b u t with little
variation. On t h e whole it is satisfying, b u t not moving.
Deep Purple ( T e t r a g r a m m a t o n
T-1 19) by Deep Pruple is an adv e n t u r o u s reach for ecelecticicism.
My favorite tracks: "Chasing Shad o w s " which spotlights a flashy
guitar solo, a soulful organ and
e c h o c h a m b e r voices w r a p p e d in a
heated rhythmic context making
use of various percussion instrum e n t s . D o n o v a n ' s " L a l a t i e " is
s u n g with feeling and contains a
swinging, hut out of place solo o n
" F a u l t l i n e " is t h e most experim e n t a l track on t h e a l b u m " i n g
various electronic affects in a
dirge-like m a n n e r which suddenly
j u m p s t o u s o u n d salad bridge
to surly
phrases. T h e vocal seems vaguely
similar to " S u m m e r t i m e . "
" A p r i l " t h e longest a n d m o s t
intriguing selection, is a c o m b i n a t i o n of rock a n d classical music.
Well, 1 e x p e c t e d m o r e , b u t I
e x p e c t e d a l o t . If y o u ' r e familiar
with t h e M o o d y Blues, y o u ' r e
aware that their music can be
breathtakingly beautiful. DAYS

waiting for their perfect a l b u m ;
T O O U R C H I L D R E N ' S CHILD R E N ' S C H I L D R E N might have
been it. T h a t was virtually flawless
and absolutely beautiful.
I w o n d e r e d h o w t h e y ' s follow
that a l b u m . Their answer is A
QUESTION O F B A L A N C E a n d ,
while it's by n o means a disaster, I
d o n ' t think it's a total success
The highlights of t h e album--not
surprisingly--are Justin H a y w a r d ' s
three songs ( " Q u e s t i o n , " " I t ' s U p
to Y o u , " " D a w n i n g is the D a y " )
where the lyrics are up to par with
the music. If y o u check t h r o u g h
all t h e a l b u m s , you'll see t h a t
while the o t h e r Moodies write
s o m e t i m e s well a n d s o m e t i m e s
not so well, H a y w a r d virtually
never flaws; h e ' s got q u i t e a h e a d .
Try playing " I t ' s Up T o Y o u "
early some m o r n i n g when y o u ' v e
been up all night. It makes everything okay even if it really isn't.
T h e rest o f t h e a l b u m falls d o w n
mostly because the lyrics, which,
with the e x c e p t i o n of H a y w a r d ' s ,
are generally p r e t t y trite. I t ' s
strange, because by the last a l b u m
(or before) t h e Moodies h a d all

songwriters. Y e t , this a l b u m lyric- S t a t e University of N e w York at

beautiful t h a t you forget the lyric from singers of t h e Mixed ehorusanyway. This is a m u s t buy al- es, the University Singers, a n d the
bum, despite its faults, if y o u dig

side ends with "Midnight Hambier" ( 8 : 3 2 ) . Here, Jaggei starts
singing before the band is even
ready, he's that into it. Side One
is kind o f long
over twenty
three minutes
and you'll dig
every second.
Side T w o begins with an absolutely fantastic beautiful excellent
far o u t "Sympathy for the Devil."
"Live With Me" is next. Jaeger's
invitation is somewhere between
the sexual message of "Let's
Spend the Night Together" and
the insult of "Under My T h u m b . "

ends Side T w o , which is just short
of t w e n t y minutes.
Don't get this album if the
landlord lives downstairs and y o u
have t o keep quiet (unless y o u
have headphones). Otherwise, get
the m o n e y together, get the record, get spaced out of your head
and experience true rock and roll
as it should be done. 1 see a big

Vietnam War critics never cease lo amaze me. For some reason they
seem to take it for granted that everyone-bul everyone—opposes the
"anti-democratic, imperialist venture" in Vietnam, in the words of our
latest critic, Ira J. Wolfman (ASP column , Nov. 20). The consistency
with which this attitude is taken has so dulled my senses that I am no

Mr. Wolfman has called the war "anti-democratic." This is an
interesting choice of words—calling the war "anti-democratic" rather
than the traditional "undemocratic." Let me see if I understand him
correctly. Is he saying that the Vietnam War has had the effect of
tearing down the democratic processes in this country? If this is what
he means, then I can only say that this is true only to the extent that
those opposing the war have yet with so much resistance form the
electorate that they use violent and undemocratic means to express
their discontent. Thus it is not the war in Vietnam which is

Of all the alternatives being considered, by far the best and most
efficient one seems to be what is
called a catalytic converter. Briefly, a catalytic converter is a closed
system containing a metallic catalyst which, when the exhaust is
passed over it, changes the composition of the exhaust.
There is only one drawback to
this solution. Lead tetraethyl, an
octane-boosting ingredient present
in most gasolines, breaks down
the metallic catalyst and renders it
useless in a short time. However,
these converters have been effective for up to fifty thousand miles
in tests using lead-free gasolines. If

De-Papering the Earth
by Lory Laglia
The PYE Club at Albany State has been very active this year. The
Recycling Committee, as yet one of the less vocal subcommittees of
PYE, has been working diligently since September. Under the
direction of Dr. Richard Brown, this group was formed in the belief
that the university community should take a step forward in the
crucial issue of recycling.
The urgency of recycling waste products is great. Progress moves
toward an infinite goal, but our resources are finite. Recycling will
help to redirect the flow of waste products. Besides replacing the use
of raw materials, this can reduce both manufacturing pollution and
the problem of waste disposal.
The group is currently trying to institute a program to recycle paper
on campus; we chose this as our first step because it seemed the most
feasible. Approximately one half of the waste on campus, which
amounts to several tons per week, is paper. There are nearby
companies that would be willing to buy the used paper. The State
Campus has achieved success in similar projects and can lend advice.
So far the project is still in the blueprint stages; a general outline has
been submitted to Mr. John Buckhoff, Plant Supervisor. The plan
provides for three types of collection areas: paper only, trash only,
and areas where the two are combined. These last areas will contain
separate waste baskets designated for either paper or trash. The paper
waste will then be re-routed to be recj :led rather than to the land fill
where all of it is currently dumped.
Committee members have received favorable reactions from faculty
members. Mr. Buckhoff has been responsive and co-operative. He has
assigned Jack Talmadge, a daytime dormitory supervisor, to act as a
liason for University Maintenance. To be effective, this project needs
the co-operation of the entire university community.
After completing preliminary gathering of information, the
committee hopes to move at a fast pace and initiate the program
directly after intercession. In the future the committee has hopes of
enlisting other colleges and volunteer groups to include more of the
Albany areas.
The quality of the food wiich we buy for consumption has not changed. All of the foodstuffs that we
purchase are at least of the same quality that the
average housewife uses in her home.
We purchase USA choice or USA prime grades of
beef, for student consumption. These grades are the
two best offered for sale in the United States.
Where some of the students derive the idea that the
food is of inferior quality, is they are not used to
institutional cooking. Therefore they try to compare
our food to the food that they consume at home.
Unfortunately we cannot meet this comparison because we must prepare and serve over 20,000 meals
per day.
Institutional style cooking does not cater to each
individual taste as home style cooking does. It does
try to please the majority of the students, the
majority of the lime. It is impossible to please
everyone all of the time,
We do realize that we can make mistakes while
serving in large quantities. Therefore on each of the
quads we have tried to form food committees to
bring student complaints lo our attention. These
organizations have been very successful and have
enabled us to be sensitive to the needs and desires of
the students. If you have a valid complaint about
food please let us know about it.
To voice your complaint you can join your food'

Danes Lose Opener To Williams 81-76
If General Electric
can build an electric tractor,
why can't they build an
electric car?
General Electric is marketing a
14-horsepower rechargeable electric
tractor capable of speeds up to 7
miles an hour.
We think it's a remarkable
innovation. But an electric car it's not.
As a garden tractor for home
use, Elec-Trak ' can lake advantage of
characteristics that would be distinct
disadvantages in an electric car.
The availability of fuel is no
problem for Elec-Trak. It's designed
for limited use near electrified
structures, making overnight
recharging possible.
The heavy weight of the
battery, which would slow down a
car, means greater applied traction
for Elec-Trak.
Because Elec-Trak must travel
at slow speeds In do its jobs, there
are no aerodynamic energy losses to
lake into consideration.

The Senate Professional Association of
SUNY is one of four organizations
seeking to represent SUNY faculty and
professional staff in a bargaining
representation election this month.
SPA is ably suited to represent the
SUNY professional staff for a number of
SPA is the only organization totally
representative of, and devoted to the
needs of the SUNY professionals. SPA,
heir to the traditions of faculty
participation in governance, has been
intimately involved with the problems of
SUNY professionals.
This experience has confirmed SPA's
dedication to the principles of localautonomy, local solutions to local
problems, and genuine participation in all
phases of University life.
SPA is the only organization with its
origins in SUNY and completely
indigenous to SUNY. SPA is free of
entangling alliances with outside forces,
whose allegiences lie outside higher
education and the SUNY system.
SPA is democratic and representative.
On Nov. 20 SPA's 50-plus Representative
Council met in Syracuse to hammer out
SPA's collective bargaining program for
SUNY. SPA's program, developed by its
members was the product of a collective
decision. Because of its dedication to
democratic participation, SPA will never
be in conflict with its membership, nor
will SPA commit itself to causes alien to
higher education and the SUNY system.
SPA will be an effective bargaining
agent. Under an agreement with the 1.1
million member National Education
Association and the 115,000-member
New York State Teachers Association,
SPA is entided to purchase the services of
the leading professional negotiating team
in the nation. SPA will be able to draw
upon the bargaining experience developed
in literally thousands of negotiations in
education. Yet, SPA retains its
independence and complete autonomy.
When entering negotiations, we think
you will agree, it is better to draw upon
the resources of 1.1 million members,
than the 200,000 members of the
AFL-CIO Teachers Union, the 144,000
members of the Civil Service Employees
Association or the 80,000 members of
the AAUP.
SPA has a bargaining program. It is a
bargaining program that most accurately
reflects the needs and aspirations of the
SUNY professionals. (That's where being
democratic and representative come in,
SPA's bargaining program (your
bargaining program, actually) calls for:
*A salary program that will achieve
parity with top ranking public universities
nationally. The program calls for
minimum salaries, guaranteed annual
increments, longevity increases, a
cost-of-living adjustment factor and
discretionary merit increases.
*Workload adjustments, with formulas
to be developed on the local campus level
to provide equitable and uniform
standards. Workloads should be reduced
to provide optimum effectiveness for
each faculty member and professional
staff member within the SUNY system.
Assignments of workload should
differentiate between 1 ef els of
preparation required, the nature and
amount of research required to meet the
standards of a particular position, and
will take into consideration other
professional obligations such as
c o m m i t t e e work, laboratories,
community service, student advising and
student contact.
* Academic freedon and tenure should
be prefaced by AAUP's 1940 statement
on Academic Freedom and Tenure, as a
minimum standard of protection. SPA
seeks a uniform system of due process for
all University professional staff, tenured
and nontenured, and for all members of
the academic community, including
students. SPA believes that all decisions
of promotion and tenure should be made
locally by an individual's colleagues.
*SPA favors local governance and the
continued integrity and autonomyof local
campus units. Within the framework of
the statewide contract, SPA intends to
make every possible provision for local
decision-making as desired by the entire
professional staff.
*SPA seeks a wide range of
improvements in a number of additional
areas such as retirement, life insurance,
health insurance, dental and optical
coverage, tuition support and an
improved leave policy.
SPA is determined that that which is
good in the SUNY system be retained,
that every effort be exerted to preserve a
collegial atmosphere condusive to quality
labor-management approaches to
bargaining which would result in a loss of
traditional prerogatives and those special
elements that elude contractual
That's why SPA represents the best
chance for creative change in the SUNY
system--without creating chaos.

Economics, and Other Unsolved Crimes
As you know of course, economics is often called "the dismal
science," but not because it's dismal. Oh mercy, no! In fact, it's a laff
riot! It's called "the dismal science" only because that'B the name of
the Englishman who invented it back in 1681 — Walter C. Dismal.
Mr. Dismal, curiously enough, wasn't trying to invent economics
at all. Actually, he was trying to invent plankton, but as you know of
course, Max Planck beat him to it. (This later became known as Guy
Kawkes Day.)
And so spunky Mr. Dismal went back to the old drawing board
and ataycd there till he invented economics. Then tired but happy, he
rushed to Heidelberg University to announce his findings. But, alas, he
arrived during the Erich von Stroheim Sesquicentennial, and naturally
everybody was yodelling and couldn't hear what Mr. Dismal was saying. And so, alas, he slunk bark home and died, old and embittered at
the age of 11. (This later became known as the Black Tom Explosion.)
Well sir, after Mr. Dismal, nothing much happened in Europe unless you want to count Lhe Dardanelles. Then in 1776 Adam Smith of
Scotland got tired of the cough drop business he had started with hiB
brother and published his famous Wealth of Nations (or Moll Flanders
as it is generally known as) and the world came to realize what a jolly,
uncomplicated subject economics really is.
It all boils down to this: when there is a great demand for a product, there is n great supply on the market. When there is a small demand, there is a small supply. Take, for example, knee-cymbals. You
walk Into your average American middle-sized town today and I'll
wager you won't stie more than eighty or ninety knee-cymbal vendors.
That's because the demand is small.
With Miller High Life Beer, on the other hand, you'll see a great
supply because there is a great demand. And of course the demand is
fircat because the beer is great. And, mark you, I'm not asking you to
take my word for it. Prove it yourself with this simple test:

one-quarter as well what a great beer Miller is? Of course not.
"Great," in fact, is the single adjective that describes Miller Beer
best (except possibly "wet"). Indeed some people are so overcome with
admiration for M iller's greatness that they can't bear to drink it. They
just sit with a glass of Miller in hand and admire it for as long as ten or
twelve years on end. The makers of Miller Beer are of course touched
by this reverence, except of course for Clyde R. Greedy, the sales
But I digress. Adam Smith, aa you know of course, was followed
by David Kicurdo. In fact, he was followed everywhere by Mr. Ricardo.
He finally got so annoyed that he summoned a booby, as British
policemen are called, and had Mr, Ricardo arrested. (This later became known as the Humboldt Current.)
Upon his release from gaol, as British jails are called, Mr. Ricardo
married Thomas Robert Mai thus and ono night over a game of whist
they invented the stock exchange, ur chutney as it is called in England.
Next, economics spread to Franco (carried, some Bay, by sheep
ticks). The French, however, never really got the hang of it. At firBt
they tried using omelettes as the medium of exchange. When this
failed, they tried Edith Piaf records. When this too failed, they flew
into a fit of pique and dug the Suez Canal.
Well sir, 1 guess you know what happened next. Economics came
to America, John Kenneth Galbraith fought his famous duel with
Aaron Burr, Gresham's Law was repealed, and at lust came the happy
ending. Today, I urn delighted to report, any American boy or girl, no

SOE in Transition
The School of Education at Albany State has for some time
been a sort of veneer on the University, getting attention mainly
as a sluice for funnelling out undergraduates who want to avoid
their subject disciplines and get quick jobs as teachers.
Undergraduates seriously interested in becoming good teachers
have been faced with a set of required courses stagnant from years
of neglect.
Right now, the School of Ed is moving in the direction of
significant structural change, but it is moving slowly and is not
quite sure of the direction it's going in. The changes would
respond to the loud but unorganized student criticism of last
semester, to several long-standing complaints from individual
professors in SOE and to the general ancient malaise students have
suffered in education courses, since we ceased being a small
teacher's college.
Changes are slow and haphazard for a number of reasons.
Criticism may be aimed at Education professors for courses which
are dull and seem to lack substance; at the SOE administration for
not responding to student discontent sooner; at the University
Administration for giving SOE no powers of advisement or any
other status among the rest of the University schools and colleges;
at the State of New York for an education budget which
encourages the funding of graduate departments at the expense of
undergraduate courses.
The first important step toward changing the situation at
Albany was initiated last spring by the Dean of the School of Ed,
Randolph Gardner; he created a Student Advisory Council and
provided for funds and a graduate-student organizer to keep it
going. This semester several professors, notably Dr. Berger of the
Foundations Department and Dr. Cochrane of English Education,
have outlined plans which vary from the unrealistic to the
ingenious and quite practical. And President Benezet has
instituted a Task Force on Deucalion to investigate administrative
But most criticism should be directed at a large, potentially
powerful group which has so far made few constructive inroads
into the system: undergraduate students who take Education
Student reaction to Ed courses has been characterized by
assorted feelings of tolerance, apathy, somnolence, and disgust.
Yet no constructive ideas were forthcoming until last spring when
a handful of students with concrete suggestions attempted to
organize and put to work several hundred strike-bound students
interested mainly in attending rap sessions. What traces remain of
last spring's activity in this area are largely the result of Dean
Gardner's efforts. And this year, organization of undergraduates
remains a demanding task: Two showed up at a hearing last
Monday on the Berger Proposal to make all undergraduate Ed
courses elective; eight students responded to announcements and
phone calls about a meeting of the Student Advisory Council
Tuesday night; classroom reaction has become more vocal in favor
of change, but so far few students have devoted extra-curricular
time to the Teacher Ed Program.
The last paragraph of the Berger Proposal ends with the
exhortation: "Why do we have to wait for students to tell us what
is wrong?...Why not...initiate the change ourselves?" Faculty
mem hers-as well as a number of graduate students-have already
made first steps toward change, and all Ed professors, with few
exceptions, have either shown a tolerance for student criticism or
have expressed great anxiety that not enough students are being
Despite the disappointing figures mentioned above, there are
already a good number of undergraduates interested in finding out
what's going on and in having their say. Right now, and especially
next semester, they have a number of opportunities: Student
Advisory Council, the Berger Proposal hearings, a newly-formed
committee to improve Methods courses, and the responsiveness of
their own Ed professors. Let us give some direction, and perhaps a
bit more impetus, to the forces for correction already set in

LAAC Requests
Haley Resignation
To the Editor:
It was a pleasure to have an
interview with you last week, and
I have but one observation, and
that is regarding the comments of
Mr. Walter Tisdale and Mr. Buckoff.
I would like to make it absolutely clear that those who had the
responsibility for planning the
sewer system of the State University were one hundred percent
aware of where sewage was going
from the University, whether into
the sewage treatment plant at
Westerly Island or into Patroon
Creek. For Mr. Buckoff to try to
relieve the Slate University of its
responsibility is unrealistic. I
doubt if he would have appreciated it if the City had refused to let
the drainage from the Univeristy
go into the City of Albany sewer
The State University is a polluter as is the Tobin Packing Company, and other sewage going into
Patroon Creek. The responsibility
primarily rests with the people of
the state and nation whose interest in cleaning up the waters of
this country is comparatively recent.
I would also like to point out
that the City of Albany did build
a sewage treatment plant prior to
1920—modern when il was built.
The people of Albany have spent
over $5,000,000 on its construction and operation, and because
of the fact that none of the
municipalities on the other side of
the Hudson constructed any treatment facilities, the people of
Albany in effect received no belief i t. from their more than
$0,000,000 expense. 1 might also
point out that il has been generally recognized that the City of
Albany took the local lead in
furthering, enthusiastically, the
State's Pure Waters Program.
Sincerely yours,
Erastus Corning
Mayor of Albany

To the Editor:
It seems that many people on
campus feci justifyably outraged
at the national bullshit that they
seemingly can't do much about:
senators who are both directors of
large banks and committeemen
for financial policy, judges who
start racist country clubs and then
rule on discrimination suits, presidents who articulate about "uniting our divided country" and smilingly accept hardhats.
Yet 1, for one, am just as angry
at the bureaucratic bullshit that
goes on in our own university; the
rules without reasons, the arbitrary privileges, the unnecessary exploitations. Meaningless rules such
as allowing only three people to
visit someone in the infirmary;
arbitrarily established privileges
such as not permitting a student
to have a kitten in a suite yet
allowing a dorm director directly
below to have a dog, strictly
selfish exploitations such as forcing anyone who resides in university dormitories to buy an FSA
meal plan (How are they related?)
or implementing a clever bookstore policy in which getting the
discounts on textbooks is made

In contrast to other so-called

To the Editor:
The ideas of Mr. Bob Warner in
this article are those of a person
totally ignorant of the real situation in the Middle East. He fails to
recognize that the basic issue is
that Israel has had unjustly displaced a peaceful people giving
them misery in place of a paradise. It is this trend of ignoring
the desires of the Palestinians that
characterized the efforts of the
Zionists, the British, and the Arab
statesmen and that complicated
the problem and made it insoluble.
We, Palestinians, are not
opposed in priniciple to the desire
of the Jews to have a state of their
own, but we are definitely opposed to anybody who encroaches
upon our land and occupies it by
force. What is dangerous in the
logic of Mr. Warner is that he
reiterates the Israeli configurations of the situation without
reflecting upon them. Thus, Israel's non-acceptunce of the Palestinians, the original owners of
the country, is just and reasonable; the Arabs are notorious,
they have rabid minds, and they
hate the Jews! By the same token,
it is only just and reasonable that
Israel would take over land by
force expanding its territories and
building new colonies and settlements as in the West Bank, the
Sinai, and the Golan Heights. This
is why we say that Israel is expansionist and imperialist. If Israel is
democratic, it is only in the sense
that Great Britain or France was
democratic with the British or the
French and despotic with the
"backward subjects." If Israel
were a forerunner of economic
socialism how could you explain
the fact that she has been continuously financed by capitalistic individuals, firms, and states right
from the beginning till the present? What we should realize is
that, if we should correct the
injustices done to the Jews in the
West we should not achieve this
by creating further injustices to
the Palestinians in the East. Finally, the decision to assimilate in
another country or not is fur the
Palestinians to make not for their

ASP Sets Goals For Future
Growth and change will direct
the Albany Student Press in the
coming semester, according to
newly elected Editor-in-Chief
Tom Clingan.
Plans for a thrice weekly
publication, expanded coverage
and staff, and membership in an
advertising cooperative will hopefully be completed by the next
semester. The increased revenues
through the business venture will
provide most of the funding for
the expansion of the paper when
coupled with projected additional
from St uden t
The printing of three issues per
week is the culmination of an
extensive re-organization of the
Albany Student Press begun Ibis
semester under the leadership of
Neill Shanahan. This had let! to
several innovations this semester:
sixteen page issues, highlighting
the general format of twelve page
issues, some use of color, and a
new arrangement for more efficient production.
Next semester's goals will allow
many of the editors of the ASP to
examine and evaluate their positions on the paper with the overall
direction of their education at the
university. The absence of a journalism school and courses has
been a barrier to expansion of the
paper. An increase in productivity
necessitates an increased staff,
both technical and reportorial.
Action through various committees seem to indicate the university's interest in this area, but
as yet this has been a seriously
neglected area of study.
"With the stress on educational
communication on this campus,
it's surprising to find absolutely
nothing in the field of journalism," commented Clingan, accurately summing up the opinion of
most of the ASP staff.
Membership in the Associated
College Media will also allow foi
the growth of the Albany Student
Press, according to Business Mana

as its membership. Working with

David Peck, a member of Central Council and Chairman of the
Grievance Committee, accused
Peter Haley, the Assistant Director of Food Service, of antiSemitism, last Thursday night.
The charge centered around a
bill introduced by Ken Stokem
that called for the dismissal of
Haley. Council was asked to endorse this resolution which had
been passed by LAAC.
Council refused to pass judgment on the hill, however, and
tabled it for one week. Yet many
Council members and outsiders
had their say beforehand. There
seemed to be three main positions
In the much heated debate: one of
complete proponance of the bill,
one of doubt as to the validity of
anyone's documentation, and one
of outright antagonism to the bill.
Peck's charges, were based on a
few signed affidavits and his own
personal accounts, which indicated, he said, that Haley had not
only been rude, but had "been
proven to be anti-Semitic." He
referred to what he called Haley's
"hostile" attitude toward the
kosher meal plan. He also said
that Haley refused to permit a
student to break the lunch contract, which had been recommend
by a doctor for reasons of health.
The skeptics of Peck's argument
against Haley could not, they said,
sit in judgment of a man's job on
such little evidence, and therefore,
requested Haley's presence the
following week so that he could
answer the charges. It must be
noted, though, that Council has
no power of employment in this
case; it may only recommend action.
The strongest opponents of the
hill defended Haley's character
