There are times in this university when a situation is ripe
Now that Indian Quadrangle is almost finished, why can't
one hall in the low rise group be set aside as a graduate
Graduate students have been shafted as far as living areas
are concerned since the construction of the new campus.
Gradually, all else has moved uptown or further downtown to Draper, including graduate-level courses. Yet all of
the on-campus graduate housing remains downtown, in
Brubacher and Pierce halls. Grad students should be given
a choice of where to live, and now that Indian is nearly
finished such a choice can be possible.
At present, the university forces grad students into the
role, which not all of them like or want.
Students who arc new to the area arc forced into the arms
of Albany's robber-baron landlords if they wish to live
within a reasonable distance from the campus. Many times
this proximity to the campus is a must because of the
library and research facilities. There are an cver-increusing
number of full-lime graduate students, most of whose
courses are given on the new campus.
The university community is based on an interaction of
diverse personalities. How can this goal he achieved when a
portion of the community is always segregated from the
The means is at hand and the goal is worth working
toward. We urge all graduate students, HI students who
will be returning as graduates in the fall. In organize and
work for a graduate dormitory on ihis campus.

Memory can L st be described as that function of t h e brain which
deserts you during an exam. Today, therefore, let us take up mnemonics, or little tricks to aid the memory.
As you know of course, mnemonics is named after Mnemon, t h e
hero of possibly the loveliest of all the Greek m y t h s . I t tells how t h e
Athenian youth Mnemon fell in love with the wood nymph Ariadne,
and she with him, Indeed, so oblivious were these two to everything
except each other, t h a t one year they forgot to attend the festival of
Demeter, the goddess of bran. Well sir, naturally Demeter got pretty
wroth, and to make sure the lovers would never forget again, s h e
changed Ariadne into a finger and Mnemon into a piece of string.
A lovely myth, as you can see, and as you know of course, i t ' s
been the inspiration for dozens of richly romantic books, plays and
operas, including La Traviata, Ueerdayer and The Joys of Yiddish.
But I digress, Mnemonics, I say, are little tricks to aid the memory. For example, here's how I learned my Zip Code — 72846. I broke
it into two smaller groups of digits, each with a special meaning. Like
this: 72-846.
See how easy it is now? T h e first group of digits, 72, is, as you
know of course, the number of days in the gestation cycle of the larger
marsupials, like the oryx, the bushy lemur and the Toyota. And t h e
second group, 846, you will instantly recognize of course as Dick Tracy's
badge number.

But some people say that mnemonics, useful though they may
be, will soon be replaced by a far better memory aid. In fact, say they,
we arc on the verge of a fantastic new breakthrough, Recent experiments have definitely proved that memory is carried in the bruin cells
by the suh-mnlceule called UNA. Therefore, say they, as soon as science learns how to synthesize UNA, all we'll have tit do is swallow a
teaspoon of it and —presto! instant memory.
(Incidentally, if you're wondering what the initials UNA stand
for, I forgot, I do recall, however, what /J.V.I stands for. When t h e
eminent biochemist Alfred J. Signfoos was isolating DNA back in
11)60, he carried on experiments of such incredible delicacy you can
scarcely believe it. Why, do you know thai lie was actually dissecting
tissues only a trilUunth of an inch thick'.' T h a t ' s why his fellow lab
workersnumed thestulTDNA for "Don't Nudge Alfred.")
But I digress. Some people, 1 say, believe thai silence will soon
decode UNA. But others are doubtful. How can anybody decode UNA,
they ask, when they can't even figure out the brewing formula of
Miller High Life Beer?
It's true, you know. Miller High Life is absolutely unique. No
competitor has ever been able to duplicate it. Oh sure, they've tried.
In fact, they've been trying for 115 years. Anil that's how long they've
been failing because from the very beginning Milter's brewing formula
has been a secret known to only one man on earth Miller's chief
brewmastcr - and he never tells it to another soul until, on his deathbed, he whispers it into the ear of his eldest son.
Take, for example, the current chief lirewmuster at Miller High
Life—Heinrich Luckjuw the X l l t h . A vorit.ihle tomb is Ileinrich the
X l l t h . Believe me, he's been offered plenty to divulge t h e formula.
And I don't mean just money; 1 mean treasures far more precious
the Mona Lisa, the Klgiu Marbles, Belgium, the only existing skeleton
of Charlemagne as a boy, the original manuscript of The Jvymif Yulrfmh.
B u t Heinrich the X l l t h just keeps shaking his head, determined t h a t
the secret of Miller High Life shall be his alone until, with his final
breath, he whtHpcrs it into the ear of his eldest son Heinrich the XMIlh
(or Gabby, as all his friends call him).
But I digress. You want to know whether science will ever decode
UNA. Well sir, I don't have the answer. Hut this much I can tell y o u :
America did n o t become the world's foremost producer of laminated
prosthetics and edible furniture by running away from a fight!
And don't you forgot itl
We, the brewers of Miller High Life and the spumum of this ealum it,

Central Council:
First Show at Fillmore North?
by Kenneth Deane
by Jeff Burger
The younger generation is notorious for its criticism of the "Establishment" for being non-representative and unresponsive t o the true needs of the
people. But a major flaw in many critics is a failure
t o e x a m i n e their own "back yard". I believe this t o
be the case at this University.
The student body o f this institution is presently
being governed b y a body—Central Council—which I
And t o be suffering from several undemocratic
features, and one which fails, in some respects, t o
represent the actual needs of the students. Under
the rpesent system, each completed residence area
elects three representatives to Council, with the five
Commissions and the Pan Hellenic Council permitted t w o votingrepresentatives each, and the faculty
permitted five representatives. Thus, approximately
one-half of 3 3 of the Council representatives are not
popularly elected by the students at large. But these
Council members represent a relatively small segment of the University's 8 , 0 0 0 undergraduate students.
Under the present system, it is also possible for an
individual to be elected to Council by o n e of the
Commissions and to reach a high executive position
in s t u d e n t government w i t h o u t once having received
a m a n d a t e from the entire s t u d e n t b o d y . I find it
difficult t o understand how the interests of the
s t u d e n t b o d y at large can be properly articulated by
s o m e o n e w h o has never had t o present himself t o
the electorate for a c c e p t a n c e . It is a f u n d a m e n t a l
principle of a d e m o c r a c y that representatives of the
people m u s t answer for their actions before the
electorate. Only in such a manner can a c o n s t i t u e n c y ' s views be properly reflected.
Commercial Laissez-Faire-ism
it is
Paul Zukofsky, one of the best violinists of our time, will appear al
The anti-smoking lobbyists have won. T h e y ' v e managed to get all
cigarette commercials off the air. Much as I ^sympathize with their
motives (I am a devout non-smoker of a n y t h i n g ) , I c a n n o t see this
new law as a n y t h i n g b u t governmental infringement upon the rights of
legitimate business to advertise its product. Regardless of w h a t o n e
thinks of s m o k i n g (cigarettes, that is) the t o b a c c o industry certainly
c a n n o t be considered anything less than legitimate, and as such, it is
entitled to all the rights granted any other industry.
When talking a b o u t the t o b a c c o industry, however, people s u d d e n l y
get very moralistic about the product. "It's been linked t o c a n c e r . "
" I t can take years off your life." " I t puts a strain on your h e a r t . " All
of this is true. This leaves us with the really i m p o r t a n t q u e s t i o n :
Where d o c s t h e individual's unalienable right t o use his free will
supercede the government's obligation to protect the society it was
elected to serve? A man has the right t o have his vices. Where the line
is d r a w n , or should be d r a w n , is where a man's vice makes him a
threat to society.
Doctors tell us that it's unhealthy to be overweight. Why n o t have a
giant government weigh-in once a year and find those weighing above
a federally established "safety level"? This is a b s u r d , of c o u r s e , but
this is where we're heading. IT a man decides to s m o k e , he h u r t s no
one but himself. He is not without the facts; the studies linking
cigarette s m o k i n g with cancer and heart disease are q u i t e well k n o w n .
This industry which supplies Ihe public with this p r o d u c t , allowing
the public l o m a k e up its own mind, must be treated equally with all
o t h e r industries, however.
The g o v e r n m e n t has t o m a k e up its mind; either the t o b a c c o
industry is a legitimate industry entitled to all the rights and freedoms
granted any o t h e r industry, or its p r o d u c t presents a threat to the very
fiber of our civilization and there fore must be banned from the
market, as with heroin. This Congress has tried to take a m i d d l e road
however, to the dissatisfaction of almost everyone. T h e anti-smoking
lobby will u n d o u b t a b l y push for even further restrictions to the
dissatisfaction ut t h e t o b a c c o
It is t r u e , however, t h a t a new c o n s t i t u t i o n is in
the process of being drafted by the m e m b e r s of
Council. This newly p r o p o s e d version would rectify
the above evils by providing for direct, at large
election of the s t u d e n t government President and
Vice-President, and for the abolition of Commission
r e p r e s e n t a t i o n on Cuuncil. Memo ers of the University c o m m u n i t y should therefore urge for its immediate finalization and a d o p t i o n .

"Wa do Tittlorino, tool"
Try us—Our work is guaranteed
by Dick Sexton
On Saturday night, the Albany
State varsity basketball team met
the Potsdam Bears at the Albany
gym, with the final score showing
the Danes on top, 69-58.
For the second successive game,
Don Joss was given the nod to
start by Coach Sauers. Steve
Sheehan was saved for some
added strength in the second half.
The other four starters were the
regulars, John Quattrocchi, Al
Reid, Jack Jordan, and Jim Masterson.
The story of the first half can be
described very simply. The strong
jump-shooting of senior Al Reid
and a tight zone defense set the
pace for the game. Potsdam employed a zone defense which
forced the Dane five to take long
outside shots, but, it wasn't successful, owing to the accuracy of
Reid and Masterson. Reid from
the corners and Masterson from
the key area kept Albany in the
game. They had 14 and 8 points
respectively in the first half.
With seven minutes remaining in
the half, Coach Sauers had his
men start a sort of weave which
wasted some Lime and also forced
the Bears into defensive mistakes.
Dane defense, as usual, was tight
and strong. It closed up the shooting and passing lanes and kept
Albany ahead till the half ended.
The score, at the half was 31-30.
A strong, balanced offense and
the same tight defense characterized the second half. Some slick
passing and timely steals by backcourters Masterson and Quattrocchi enabled the Danes to
achieve an eight point lead midway through the second half.
Doc opened the second half
with the same starting five. After
a few minutes into the half, Steve
Sheehan replaced Don Joss and
contributed a strong offensive as
well as defensive effort.
With seventeen minutes remaining in the game, Reid committed
his fourth personal foul and was
replaced by Werner Kolln, who
helped with some good defense as
well as contributing a pair of
baskets to the score.
Jim Masterson had one of his
better nights against the Bears,
scoring well over his season average. His long outside shots forced
the Bear zone defense to open up.
This permitted Steve Sheehan and
Werner Kolln to take the driving
Dave Wclchons also played an
important role in Lhe victory. His
good floor game with John Quattrocchi enabled the Danes to stall
and ice their lead.

the game was Albany's rebounding strength, carried over from the
Buffalo game on Wednesday
night. Steve Sheehan, Don Joss,
and Jack Jordan continued to pull
in key rebounds against Potsdam.
They also stayed hot at the foul
line, as the Danes hit 13 for 16.
On Wed. night, they had 30 of 34.
Credit must be given to Coach
Sauers, who has coached the Albany team to thirteen winning
seasons. The entire squad is in
such a very good condition,
through tough daily workouts
that they can sustain such a fastmoving and tight-pressing game.
Individual point totals were as
follows: Jim Masterson took
game-high honors with 17 points,
Al Reid had 14 points, Steve
Sheehan had 12 points, Jack Jordan 11, and John Quattrocchi 10.
Werner Kolln, Don Joss, and Dave
Welchons contributed a seven
point effort. The final score was

Now the State Judo Club can
offer better instruction than ever
before. While it is important to
have a qualified black belt instructor, much of the instruction
comes from the judoka themselves. Our club on campus can
offer both. Chief instructor for

'No Spectator Ruling
Defended by AMIA
Under some persistent pressure
from Central Council, concerning
the "no spectator" rule at AMIA
Basketball games, the Intramural
Office told the ASP its reasons for
such a rule.
According to Michael Yager, Coordinator for Men's Intramural
Athletics, the ruling revolves
around a safety factor, "we simply can't control them; there's
just no place for them".
The gym is equipped to hold
three games simultaneously, and
according to Yager, there just is
not enough sidelines room to hold

Non-violent Action
The Peace Project is sponsoring a weekend of training in
non-violent action, February 1 H- 21,1971. The training will be
led by the New York Oily Quaker Project on Community
Conflict (QPCC). Through role-playing, discussion, classes on
strategy, tactics, leadership and direct action methods, we will
explore creative, forceful and loving ways to build a just and
peaceful society. We will live and work together during the
weekend. Hopefully, those who come away with a commitment to non-violence will want to stay in touch and to follow
up, as a group, on what that commitment means.
The first session will begin Thursday night, February 1H, at
7::m PM in the Assembly Hall at the SUNY Campus Center.
The second session will begin Friday, February 19, in the
Fellowship Hall of the Unitarian Church, 40B Washington
Avenue, Albany, at f>-It) PM and continuing through Sunday.

Michael Yager, who runs the AMIA program for
Student Association, has arbitrarily ruled that, for
security reasons, student spectators can no longer
watch their AMIA teams compete. The rest of his
argument appears on page 7 of this paper. His proof
has yet to be submitted to anyone.
This Is the actual crux of the matter. One man
running an S.A. group has no right to make a
decision affecting so many. It's a matter for the
elected representatives of the student body: Central
Council. If and when Mr. Yager demonstrates the
true need for closing the gym to spectators, the gym
will doubtless be closed. Until then, it must remain
open. No minor administrator has a divine power
over Student Association activities.
Should the gentleman concerned elect to ignore
Council's jurisdiction here, all student monies, both
S.A. and F.S.A., should be withdrawn from the
AMIA program pending full investigation. Any program paid for by students, directly or indirectly,
:uul affecting students, must be under sludenl
Let The Student Beware
Campus crime figures increase every year , but
seldom do people realize wliul lliis actually means
until il hits close lo home. It's only when a close
friend is robbed on a liiday night while walking
from Dutch lo the Snack liar, that you say lo
yourself, "Clod, thai could have been me."
And when il is you, il isn't the $.1.00 they stole
thai hurls. It's where il happened and how easily
they pulled il off. If two men will rob someone on ;i
busy Friday some 50 yards from the Campus Center
they'll do anything, anywhere, and anytime. To
anyone. And for a mere $.1.00, loo.
So those of us who used lo joke about downtown
Albany will have to learn lo face such crime
problems righi here.right now.
Increased security is a partial answer, bin il won't
solve litis problem the thieves here are too bold. It's
a hell of a thing lo suggest, but Iravel in groups and
slay near the lights.

by Burn/ Kirslincr
I happened lo notice I ha I n
program called "American His
tory" is now being shown on
educational T. V., which made me
wonder wlial such a show on the
commercial networks might be
like. Mow can a subject like thai
be made so interesting that it
could compete with BONANZA,
thought I.
Perplexed with the idea that
there there was probable a subject
that even the boys on Madison
Ave. could not make interesting, I
visited a network official and
asked him if it were possible to
make such a scholarly subject
relevant to the mass of television
Accepting the challenge, Mr.
Nielson said that he could make
anything interesting, and asked
me to name any subject. Trying to
think of the subject which would
most bore the average TV viewer,
I suggested that if he could make
the War of 181*2 interesting, he
could do anything. Can I make
the War of I 8 I 2 interesting to the
average viewer, said Nielson, does

Yesterday 1 found the following
manuscript in my mailbox:
The United States won the Hip

the offense. The British elected to
defend the goal on America's side
of Ihe ocean. England had come
into the war as the heavy favorite,
but considering their bii» fight
will) the French (led by Napoleon,
The Little Corporal, Bonaparte),
some experl observers believed
the Americans might be able lo
win an upset. While the French
had the .strongest ground attack,
and the British possessed the hesl
defense in the league, the Americans were increasing their offensive and defensive abilities.
The U. S. couldn't get its offense to move effectively. Although they had an elaborate
game plan to capture Canadian
territory, the warriors could not
come up with the kind of quality
work that coaches like Clay and
Calhoun had led the American
fans to expect. If was clear from
the start that the U. S. was going
to have trouble putting points on
the score board.
The British didn't score very
easily either, but they were usually content as long as their defense
held. In 1814 England used the
bomb to score a quick touchdown. Realising that the defense
was weak around Washington,
they burned the inexperienced
Americans badly. {They also
burned a few buildings, including
the White House.)
The offense on Washington put
the British in the lead but they
were unable lo maintain the momentum. The Americans had done
surprisingly well against the British
naval force, and when a treaty was
drawn up, the score was tied
12-12. (The players, unaware that

Does a snake have hips'1
AP Education Writer
A P - The Student Association of the State
University SASU brought suit against the university's Board of
Trustees Tuesday, charging that the system's rules for maintaining
order on the campus violate student rights.
The legal action seeks to have the SUNY regulations adopted under
a H)6Q state law declared unconstitutional and requests a permanent
court injunction to prevent their enforcement.
Rules Result of Henderson Act
Richard A. Lippe, a lawyer from Mineola, Long Island, who
represents the student organization, told reporters he hoped lo
invalidate some provisions of the rules put into effect at 32
state-operated campuses as a result of the so Henderson Law. The
measure was designed to prevent campus disorder.
Lippe added that he was not challenging the law itself, but rather
some specific provisions that were adopted by the SUNY trustees
when they complied with the law.
These provisions, the lawyer said, potentially deny 1 50,000 students
the right of due process.
Moreover, Lippe maintained, the trustees would get "better cooperation of they adopted regulations that are fair and reasonable."
Four Items "Untenable"
He specifically cited four parts ol the rules that SASU regarded as
One was the authorization of temporary suspension of a student
prior to a hearing by a committee made up of administrators, faculty
and students.
The second, Lippe maintained, was the provision allowing a
president of a SUNY institution to become a "prosecutor and judge"
inasmuch as the administrator could file a charge against a sludenl
and, after the committee hearing, pass final judgment on the case.
He also said the SUNY regulations set no standard of prof f to guide
the hearing committee, such as exists in legal requirements that "a
preponderance of evidence" must be demonstrated to decide on guilt.
Finally, Lippe objected to the provision that says a student's failure
to appear at a committee hearing is deemed lo demonstrate that the
allegations arc in fact true.
Suit a Coordinated Action
The lawsuit was described at the news conference as the "first
coordinated action by SUNY students lo deal with a problem mi a
coordinated basis."
SUNY at Albany, while not a dues paying member of SASU does
recognize and endorse the organization.
The Capitol was the site of several protests last year. Will the Legislature's actions concerning the
academic community cause the same stir this year?
