Under lllis constitution, which will be voted on this Thursday evening by Central Council, the President of Student Association is given too much power, Under Section :i (Executive Departments) of Article II, the President has the right to recommend lo Council his plan for the reorganization his branch. "These plans shall go info effeel only upon the consent of a majority of the Central Council."(Editor's italics). This is the only place in the entire constitution where a majority of the Council needs lo approve a presidential action, except for a simple bill, of course. Thh provision, in effeel, makes it relatively easy for the President lo create, destroy, or alter the bureaucracy of Sludenl Associaton. Il would also make it easy for him tit appoint whomever lie wishes to positions by merely creating new positions as he sees fit, which is patronage, a most powerful weapon for any incumbent. Neither does this provision say how positions are to be filled. This would be the prerogative of the President and a majority of the Council, The second part of Section ,1 stales thai: "The President shall have the power lo constitute the policies and the procedures of the executive branch which may be rejected by a li/:i vole of the Central Council." By this provision, Council musl muster '>l;l of its members lo reject instead of tipprntv "the policies and procedures of the executive branch." This is a hit of constitutional gimmickry al the expense of Central Council. Council should be wary of these Iwo provisions, so thai il doesn't sign away its powers, as the Congress of the United Stales lias done in foreign policy. The proposed constitution, should it pass CunlralCouncil, will be up for referendum early this spring II will have lo be approved by a 2/3 affirmative vote will) al least 15% of the sludenl body voting.

FLY, BABY, FLY!' Wednesday, February 17, 1971 Housing Picture Improves State University of New York at Albany Vol. LVII No.10 Senate Awaits Budget Decision by Peter J. Coughlin by Joan L. Zuckernian President Benezet reported to the University Senate on Monday that he is still "sweating it out" as he waits to hear of the legislature's decision on the budget. Rodney Hart. Director of Admissions, delivered a report on the undergraduate admission situation in which he pointed to an increase in freshman applications for 1970. He said that only a small number of acceptance and rejection notices have been sent out, and that the rest will be sent after they receive the complete results of the Regents Scholarship Exam. For the first time at Albany State, the number of students in the freshman class will not have to be limited because of a lack of housing space. According to a letter from the Housing Office that is being sent to the incoming class of '75, "we are expecting to open a new residence quadrangle on our uptown campus and with other vacancies, should not experience difficulty in accomodating any undergraduate student desiring to live on campus." As of January 29, the Processing Center had received 11,631 applications for admission in September 1971. According to Rodney Hart, the new Director of Admissions, 2*100 new students are expected to be admitted. 1200 will he freshman, 300 will be EOP students, and 900 will be transfers. Since freshmen are no longer required to live in University housing, not all of these students are expected to apply for dormitory rooms. With the 1100 new beds that will be available with the completion of Indian Quad, space can be provided for 1600 new on-campus students. Twenty-four hundred new students will bring the Albany student body to 13,000. The campus was originally designed to accommodate 10,000 students, and the question is not whether there will be enough living space, but how much farther the faculty and academic facilities can be stretched. Reporting on the SUNY Senate m e e t i n g in Buffalo, Joseph Norton told of a proposal for "roving students." Under this program students would take courses throughout the SUNY •ystcm. Also discussed there was a proposal concerning state wide governance by students, faculty, and administration. An issue that provoked controversy centered around the rejection of transfer credit for ROTC courses. Senator Kendall, ex pressing particular concern, tried to bring to the fore more complete details and finally seconded • motion to hold discussion on the issue at the next Senate meeting. The Graduate Academic Council reported that the recommended Ph.D. programs in Library Science and Anthropology have been approved—effective June 15, 1971. It was also noted that prelaw advisement is given on campus by Robert Gibson, despite an earlier statement that there was no such service available. Registration Apathy?

"Many reasons have been sugHosted I'oi this apathy," they said, "but we feel I lint for the most purl the young people are disenchanted because of the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court's decision does not allow them to vote until l!)72, which will he the first federal elect ion." The Supreme Court approved the lower voting age for federal elections, but left it to each state to fix Lhe minimum age limit for state and local elections. In New York, voters will be asked this fall whether they want t o a p p r o v e a constitutional amendment granting 18-yoar-olds the right to vote in state and local elections. Discussion was varied concerning a proposed "Outstanding Teacher's Award." The proposal provided for a stipend of $2,000 each for the selected teachers. The award was labeled as a necessary incentive by one Senator, while others questioned its claimed effectiveness. Certain specific objections were raised including: selection of committee members who were nominated would be entitled to choose their own successor; the award could be given to the same individual for two consecutive years; and no specific qualifications for nominees were listed. The bill was sent back lo the committee to be rewritten. -photo service The meeting ended with an expression of sympathy concerning the death of Robert Fairbanks, a late member of the Graduate School of Public Affairs atSVNYA.., t PAGE 2 WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17,1971 ALBANY STUDENT PRESS from the Scranton Report... i m l *n FDA to Raise Iron Contents Some Fear Adverse Effects Investigation: Who Is 'Tommy the Traveler'? ^ ^ w The following are excerpts of the Scranton Commission Report on Campus Unrest, in particular, Hobart College and incidents related to an untrained undercover agent, Thomas Tongyai.

His career e n d e d when h e was h u r t in a r o d e o . into joining the Weathermen faction of SDS. He explained that t h e y were t h e only people doing constructive things. Soon after t h e November 16 march in Washington, Tongyai told a s t u d e n t at Hobart College that he had taken a very active role in the D u p o n t Circle rally a n d s u b s e q u e n t march on the South Vietnamese Embassy. T o n g y a i spent a great deal of time at Hobart d u r i n g the fall term especially in connection with Newsreel Films of Buffalo, New York. He would bring films and leaflets, often yelling "Kill t h e pigs," whenever p o l i c e m e n t were shown in the films. They r e m e m b e r him because he often advocated the b o m b i n g of university buildings, violent revolution, the o v e r t h r o w of the United States government, and t h e beating and killing of policemen. I n S e p t e m b e r 1 9 6 3 , h e e n t e r e d Delaware Valley College of Science and Agriculture in Pennsylvania. Completing only o n e o r t w o semesters at t h e college, he did n o t receive a degree. T h e years from 1964 t o May 1 9 6 9 were s p e n t going from j o b t o j o b .

Following this Tongyai, his wife and his three-year old s o n , moved t o u p s t a t e N e w York near t h e t o w n of Penn Yan. H e moved from Pennsylvania t o N e w York. I t was in 1967 t h a t Tongyai was first seen on various c a m p u s e s in t h e Western New York area. It is r e p o r t e d that Tongyai possessed unusually strong p a t r i o t i c feelings for t h e United States. TONGYAI'S ACTIVITIES ON THE HOBART CAMPUS In the following school year (1969) Tongyai b e c a m e more widely k n o w n at Hobart and William S m i t h . In November of t h e following year Tongyai bragged of his role in the D u p o n t Circle rally. He told s t u d e n t s that violence was the only way t o achieve the goals of revolution. Tongyai said that the best maneuver in Washington would have been t o get " a pig in the c o r n e r and kick the shit out of h i m . " T h e r e are m a n y instances of Tongyai saying he wanted t o kill policemen. Once he took a d u m m y grenade and said h o w he wanted to throw a real o n e i n t o a c o p car and kill the police in it. It should be u n d e r s t o o d t h a t m o s t students, soon after coming into c o n t a c t with Tongyai, became aware of his e x t r e m i s t tendencies and were wary of h i m . Their feelings were that he was mentally u n b a l a n c e d and dangerous. On March 3 ( 1 9 7 0 ) Tongyai attended a student meeting which was called to decide if a student " w a l k - i n " on a closed faculty meeting would take place, A b o u t 100 s t u d e n t s meeting in Albright A u d i t o r i u m were split as t o t h e appropriate action t o take. When the meeting voted on several alternatives, Tongyai tried t o vote. T w o student leaders, Susan Connally and Richard Wasscrman, approached him a n d made sure he d i d n ' t vote. However, at 4 : 0 0 p . m . Tongyai walked into the faculty meeting with the rest of the s t u d e n t s . By this time Tongyai was k n o w n to most of the s t u d e n t s at Hobart. Most assumed that he was a regional organizer for SDS from Buffalo. At the second R O T C sit-in Tongyai was present for most of t h e time. T h e H o b a r t S t u d e n t Assembly passed a m o t i o n barring all outsiders from the c a m p u s . During the d e b a t e on this motion, it became obvious that it was precipitated primarily because of T o n g y a i ' s presence at the sit-in. The m o t i o n was passed and Tongyai was asked t o leuve by a variety of a d m i n i s t r a t o r s and students, but he remained. T h r o u g h o u t the sit—in, Tongyai advocated violent acts, especially such as breaking windows and b o m b i n g the offices.

He went to the first or second organizational meeting of the H o b a r t Student Movement, a s t u d e n t activist group similar t o the S D S . He was accepted at once because of his p r o n o u n c e d ties with the SDS.

This article belongs with such great works as Prof. Jensen"proof" that black people are genetically inferior (so for the good of mankind must be kept from breeding their defects any further) and History 131 B, taught here at SUNYA, which uses the works of the great and all-knowing Voltaire, whose wisdom teaches that Blacks are a subhuman species, obviously inferior to white men. It is easy to see why Governor Rockefeller believes in spending so much money for higher education. After all, any system which teaches the ideology to which he owes his personal fortune (racism, sexism, anti-working class ideology and most important that ALL-AMERICAN liberalism which grants a person the 'right' to he racist) surely is worth spreading at any cost. The article's arguments bear striking resemblance to those used to attack welfare: People (Blacks) on welfare are dumb baby machines, people (Puerto Ricans, Orientals) on welfare take advantage of hard working tax payers (Whites), welfare is Un-American. The ending follows with the rest of the article and can be paraphrased "America, we've done it now, we gave the Blacks a few crumbs (more than we fed the pigeons, right Henry?) and look what has happened, they threw it back in our faces.

The article "Where Is Racism Going?" in the ASP of Friday, February 12, 1971, certainly deserves comment from "the other side." I shall begin by saying that it was poorly written in that the ideas showed no continuity and led to no purposeful point other than to incite a racial incident on campus. The beliefs in the article are typical of crettnistic thinking which is fortified by "hearsay" and not fact. The ideas suggesting that black students "have more money than you d o " is nonreulistic. If you are referring to the stipends ($20 every 2 weeks—usually on Monday), they are not delegated to all EOP students und all Ntudents who receive them are not black, The students who receive these stipends do not have sufficient family income to provide for personal needs. The reason we dress better than you do is because we have better taste than you do. It was also stated that "and when the check comes, they run off to buy a stereo." I believe "the chock" referred to is tho one where the funds allotted the student exceed the bill and so he receives the balance. This is a rare case and to see whether I lies* students "run off and buy stereos" why don't those of you who believe this take a survey ol nil local stereo dealers the day "the check" comes in. The issue of the students at New Tall/ not wanting to carry their trays because they've been slaves too long is probably an isol, I incident blown out of proportion. It was also said that blacks are "snotty." A more correct word would have been "imlig nant." For centuries, the black man has been kicked around, pushed around and told to stay >" his place. In spite of all this he persists anil endures and makes his way to the top. This is Hie kind of strength it takes to be called ti m "n.

The campus scene is off campus. Even if there weren't any Blacks on campus, Albany Slate would be clickish, dull and with less color to say the least. It is openly admitted that institutionalized racism exists here but nothing is being done to correct the situation. No, wearing buttons like "Love is the only way" is just too superficial. Almost as bad as wearing one saying "Kill the Pigs." I agree there isn't any mass type of White and Black relations, these have to be made individually, but there isn't any type of White to While relationship either, when it comes to social and political action. This I personally witnessed at an anti-Laos rally. In reference to the article printed Friday, "Where is Racism Going," a common attitude was revealed: "I'm not anti-Black, but I don't like .snotty people, and a lot of Blacks are snotty." Wow, haven't people gotten hip to the fact, that people generally on this campus are snotty, and tight? The second most common attitude expressed in the article, held greatly by white students is about the EOP program. "The EOP Program is great intellectually. When it gets down to an emotional level it hurts. They have more money to spend than I do. They even dress better than I do. And when the Check comes they run off to buy a stereo." --Great generalizations, but a lot of Blacks do tend to be better dressers than whites simply because of the cultural "clean look" thai they project.The stereo bit, I'm still wondering about, 1 haven't gotlen mine yet. Most of the noise I hear at four o'clock in the morning comes from my white counterparts' $150 and up stereo with four big speakers. Being as objective as I can, suppose 1 mention the fact that I'm not anti-Greek, "some of my best friends are:" nor anli Semitic, "1 love Kosher food " b u t Albany State has too much of a Long Island and Greek atmosphere. "The same people, the same crowd, that act, talk, und dress alike." Imagine those white students here whose old man owns slum tenements in the ghettos and charges the occupants above normal rent for living in a condemned building with no real services, except roaches and rats. Imagine those white students here whose old man exploits Blacks and other lower-class people daily in their businesses to send little Johnny and Sue to Albany State. The half hasn't been told, these are only samples of how little Johnny and Sue get to college on the exploited toil of others. Maybe it is only due to Blacks and other oppressed people the privilege of enjoying the fruits of the majority's labor for once. No, I'm not justifying or moralizing, if Blacks had the financial backing and educational opportunities as most of their white counterparts have had, there wouldn't be any need of the EOP Program. What society has sown in the past it is reaping now. True, it has been a superficial Utopia on campus this fall and winter with no great upheaval, but we are reminded by this Biblical quote which I took out of context: "they should say peace, then c o m e t h utter chaos." When? "Whitey can't stand to be ignored.' I am a racist! Does this worry you? If it does, you have the wrong concept of what a racist is. An astrologist studies the stars; a geologist studies the earth, and a racist studies his race of people. I am a Black racist and I don't have the time to worry about BlackWhite relationships on this campus. Many whites suffer from a superiority complex. When Blacks do not cringe; when whites are present, the whites can not handle it. This is quite evident in an article I read by Micheal Lippman (Feb. 12 ASP). He states "The EOP program is great—intellectually. When it gets loan emotional level, it hurts. They have more money to spend than I do. They even dress better than I do. And when the check comes they runn off to buy a stereo." in the world where a person can *buy a $20 stereo! Many whites try to justify their actions. They base their actions on the actions of the Blacks. Michael Lippman states, "I'm not anti-Black, but I don't like snotty people, and a lot of Blacks are snotty." Here, instead of saying, "I don't like Blacks," he takes the coward's way out. Only an inferior person can be a coward, and Blacks are not cowards! Whites naturally think that Blacks are belligerent. The truth is: Blacks only respond when something is said or done that they feel is derogatory. You can abuse people for so long and eventually they will turn on you. Blacks have turned away from the whites. Whitey can't stand to be ignored. They want attention no matter what the cost. The cost is I feel that I must clear these great! statements up. EOP spelled backThere are many Blacks who feel wards is POE. Due to the fact that the only way they can relieve the students don't have a great t h e m s e l v e s from oppression deal of money, they tend to spend whould be to "kill all the Whitit on necessities.

Because of the extraordinarily high projected costs (which arc not feasible due to the limits of the city's borrowing power) the entire project is under study.

The stale government is the largest area employer, providing a solid, ever expanding base to the job situation. Washington Park was once the tranquil heart of the upper city of Albany. There were outdoor concerts in the summer, Sunday strolls and fishing and boating in the hike. Today the park is used by older people in the vicinity, the large group of college .students living nearby, and some school children.

SUT YOU TWO CHAM TOOITHBt-YOU MUST HAVE A LOT TO TALK AIOUTI' IHAV1ANA»MIMWI\--!' New Rightist Bombing... Liberty An ASP Column. by Mitchell Frost • An ASP Humor Virginia Column by Gene Da m m Stan Lehr and Louia R o u e t t o Jr. have written a fascinating article in the N e w York Times magazine section o f January 1 0 entitled, "The N e w Right C r e d o - Libertarianism." Since I consider myself a libertarian o f sorts, I read t h e article with great interest, b u t I am sorry to say that I was disappointed. T h e authors quite correctly assess much o f t o d a y ' s political ideology as tiresome and hypocritical. Many conservatives, while proclaiming law and order,"could scarcely contain their g l e e " w h e n they saw construction workers pummel anti-war protesters and long haired innocent bystanders. " S o m e were t h e self-appointed purifiers of s o c i e t y - those w h o w a n t e d t o 'clean u p ' p o r n o g r a p h y , d r u g u s e , long hair, and other v i c e s . " Yet, conservatives have long claimed t o b e the true champions of personal freedom. Liberals feel that "the state should have virtually unlimited power t o redistribute material wealth, plan and regulate e c o n o m i c activity and balance t h e desires o f each interest group against those o f every other." When their social solutions fail t o have positive results, rather than trying n e w solutions t h e y c o m p o u n d t h e problem b y proposing the same solutions In a higher dosage. For e x a m p l e , since rent control has resulted in a virtual halt in the construction of low-cost h o u s i n g , liberals have advocated more rent control. Every time the minimum wage is increased, thousands o f workers (the unskilled, t h e y o u n g , t h e black) are thrown o u t o f work and added t o the u n e m p l o y m e n t rolls. Of course, say the liberal, the solution is a higher minimum wage. The radicals, lamenting about t h e "fascist s y s t e m " oppressing t h e m , h a v e set up their o w n brand o f fascism in colleges u n d e r their d e facto c o n t r o l threatening s t u d e n t s w h o o p p o s e t h e m . " T h e N e w Left reached the height of its appeal by misrepresenting its goals as libertarian, and it began t o decline as s o o n as its totalitarian n a t u r e became evident." Where t h e a u t h o r s a n d t h e article break with reality is in t h e true m e a n i n g o f freedom. A s t h e a u t h o r s a c k n o w l e d g e , freedom includes the right of a people t o organise a m o n g themselves t o form a c o m m u n i t y o r g o v e r n m e n t . For a system t o b e politically free it m u s t also b e e c o n o m i c a l l y free (with s o m e r e s t r i c t i o n s t o check t h e abuses of m o n o p o l i e s - b o t h industrial a n d u n i o n ) . T h u s t h e libertarians rightly call for laissez-faire. Laws are freely a n d d e m o c r a t i c a l l y established t o p r o t e c t freedom, n o t t o restrict it. T h e a u t h o r s find it difficult t o u n d e r s t a n d t h e need t o p r o t e c t a free society.

New. But that's what describes Tony Williams Lifetime's new album Turn it Over (Polydor 24-4021). The power is beyond imagination, the combination of the beauties of rock and jazz complete, the talent supreme. Tony Williams has long established his greatness with the Miles Davis quintet. Being a member of one of the most important of jazz groups at the age of 19 is nothing to scoff at. His incredible technique, his soulful, pouring, driving force, his flashy, striking, energetic colors are all well focused on here. Jack Bruce's reputation with Cream won't be lost here. He creates a nice foundation. John McLaughlin introduces new ideas on guitar. He will be a new force on his instrument. Khalid Yasin (Larry Young) on organ, has some nice solo moments, but his accompaniment (if such a tame phrase is appropriate) is beautiful. The only reservation I have concerns the vocals that are similar to Schoenberg's speech-singing technique. It becomes boring after the initial affect wears off. There is a lot of electronic affects, but they are well used; they shock, move and create all kinds of moods. Check out "Once I Loved" and "Night." "To Whom It May Concern" is superb in terms of pure excitement. The arrangements are excellent using many of the various sounds such a group can produce, constantly changing tempos, always fresh, and, yes, new. So if you like rock or jazz get this album. It is fantastic. U has always been my opinion that music is made to be listened to. So when an allium is produced so as not to offend anyone, I am offended. I am talking, of course, about what is commonly called "background music." In utt artistic approach to music the judg- KNOXSTKEET WATERBEDS 138 K n o x S t .

It is this type of music that is anti-art. 11 cannot surprise, or excite or exhilarate or stimulate. Here are two albums that are that kind of product. All the requirements for easily ignored music are in these albums. Early in the Morning (Polydor 24-4506), and James Last's Soft Hock (Polydor 24-4507) - the popular songs with all the emotions drained out, an unimaginative drummer who reads cliches from his chart, syrupy strings, and, in Early in the Morning, a choral group that sings in tired, drap harmonies. There is little use in describing each song as they have been formulated to the point of losing alt individuality. Hunter Kallman's girls on Early occassionally use a German accent which lends an unintentional air of humor, but his arranging is absurdly uninspired. Inspiration is perhaps what makes Last's album the better. He seems to really believe what he's doing. "Yesterday" actually conveys a mood-super sentimentalitywith the weeping violin. "Lay Lady Lay" is a better song than anything Kallman has to offer. Although Last's treatment of it would be likely to bring up Dylan's latest dinner If he heard it, the song's heart still pulsates, albeit faintly.

Crowds, lines, vibes, moods, names, etc. Dept. (Pe te Jackobs and Charles Kriete, if by chance or cosmic accident you're still reading my reviews, you might want to skip this section.) Anyway, it should be said that the concert began late, and in conjunction with this minor bringdown there was a fairly major bringdown at the door in the form of mass pushing and shoving to get in; I saw a few people get almost crushed and that sort of thing. Later, these same people who were in possession of such together manners at the door, kept it up inside. They yelled and shouted requests all through the Bee Gees set: they were very noticeable during the ballads (unfortunately). On the other hand, they were enthusiastic (there were at least three standing ovations) and excitement is what a rock concert is all about, but then excitement has nothing to do with being rude. It should be noted that I'm not talking about the whole audience; also that the reason for the late start was not the fault of the promoter, the groups just weren't ready in time. 2.

WORKSHOP FIVE CENTS off campus Albany Student Press Wednesday, February 17, 1971 Vol. LVII No.10 State Uniuersitu of Nets York at Albany by John Fairhall Hacking your way through a jungle may not sound like fun; but that is exactly what the Judicial Workshop did this past weekend. Participating Faculty, students, and administrators struggled to define the "jungle" of relationships that constitute our University community. Their goal was to provide a basis for an effective judicial system at Albany State. The compelling need for something better than our present system is evidenced by the rapid increase of crime on campus. The system as it stands does not clearly state several guidelines, including: 1) who may report a crime; 2) to whom a crime should be reported (i.e., a particular judicial body or person): Workshop The Same Faces An ASP Column by John Fairhall Ken Kurzweil rightfully called the Judicial Workshop a success. Much was discussed and prospects for an effective judicial system appear good. But let's highlight, for a moment, those who made the Workshop a success. It was motivated by students, people such as Ken Kurzweil, Ken Blaisdell, Alan Ceppos, Barry Kirschner, Michele Mazepa, Mario Arthur and Sharon Stiller (with apologies to any unmentioned). Many of those cited are members of campus judicial bodies and it was they who knew first-hand the defects in our current judicial setup. Let's extend to them our congratulations, then. But please, please, do not call the Workshop a student success. For as so often seems the case at Albany State, student action is not collective but the result of a few. The Workshop was publicized and quite open, but as usual, no one came but the regulars. For those ignorant, "the regulars" refers to that tiny group that is already involved in student government. The regulars had more than themselves to talk to, though, as the Workshop was attended by a veritable Who's Who of the Administration. Chesin, Connally, Brown, Williams, Thorne, and even John Henighan participated. President Benezet himself addressed one meeting. So at least "Thej " came. Judging from the culiher of the people involved, then, I do not feel that the Workshop's representation—or its mandate to act for all of us— can be questioned. This problem was raised during the weekend, however, d u e to the underrepresentation of "rank-andfile" students and, most important, of minority group students. Why they weren't there is a moot question, but I do know that the judicial system that develops will affect them. I won't indulge in any diatribe on student apathy. But I do believe that, when future "student" actions develop und are discussed, the names of those students really involved should be made clear. This should not, j n fortunately, involve more than a few extra lines. PROFESSIONAL TVPINQ SERVICE IBM Selectric Typewriter Experienced in all types of Doctoral Dissertations Fast, Cjpendable Service Reasonable Rates |Call 462-6283 Oiy or EvtnlnJ The Campus Cop by Dick Blystone Associated Press Writer On some police forces, 64 year-oid Jim Eisenberg would be called an anachronism. He doesn't like wearing a gun and would rather walk than ride a patrol car. On some police forces, 25-year-old Jim Davis would be called a radical. He enjoys talking with young rebels on his beat, and he keeps saying policemen should explain to people why they do what they do. In fact, both Sgt. James P. Eisenberg and Officer James W. Davis combined something of the anachronistic and something of the radical. They are campus cops — Eisenberg a 35-year veteran at Cornell and Davis a two-year man at Berkeley. They have learned to wear their ambiguities as easily as their uniforms. Like their colleagues at colleges and universities across the country, Davis and Eisenberg are both campus guides and professional crime fighters, both friends to the students and symbols of authority where authority is often heated. It was not always so. "It was like heaven to start out with," says Eisenberg, recalling when as Cornell's only campus cop he patrolled on foot or horseback. "They were just a good bunch of mischievous kids, but they were never trouble. It was fun. "Oh, you might meet a guy peeking in a window, or some of them would throw toilet paper out of the dorm windows...a little bit of thievery and some noise calls. Sometimes one of thorn would have one too many and I'd take him home or call some of his fraternity brothers. "I was issued a weapon, but I never carried it. 1 still won't unless it's absolutely necessary." In the old days when things got out of hand, Eisenberg drew on his experience as a civilian Conservation Corps boxing coach. When the dust had settled, "the next minute you were back huddies again and having a few beers together." Davis never knew such days. He carries a pistol and a can of chemical Mace on his daytime patrol of Berkeley's Sproul Plaza, which has witnessed its share of tear gas and flying rocks. The weapons come up often in the conversations with young people that are a major part of Davis' job. Where Eisenberg once could employ a brotherly right hook, Davis has to exercise diplomacy. "They've got to understand that why I'm there is not to harass them but to do a job," Davis explains. The Berkeley campus recorded one rape, ) 2 robberies, 1 12 burglaries and 1,-!24 thefts in 1970 - despite ;i 10 per cent drop in crimes. Its H7 sworn officers are about double the force of three years ago. 3) where, once reported, a case should be heard; and -1) upon conviction, what punishment should follow, with what particular avenues of appeal. Several members of the workshop felt thai victims of crimes are often intimidated into silence, and attributed this to a lack of faith in the system. The frequent lack of prompt action in handling crimes was also cited as encouraging students to remain silent or bypass the campus system in favor of the civil courts. Workshop members reached general agreement as to the jurisdiction of a campus system. It was felt that our community has a right lo set standards for and judge the behavior of its members. Concensus was not reached as to what people and what geographic area make up our community, but it was agreed that a judicial system should deal with all areas that are of "community interest." Jurisdiction should extend to problems that occur between members of different campus groups: students, faculty, administrators and staff. Other areas of agreement were: —the need to use civil courts as little as possible —the need for a community code of conduct —the need to avoid duplication of the civil court system on campus —the right of the campus judicial system to hold hearings on student cases already pending in civil court The important work of the Workshop was its full exploration of the judicial problem on campus. Lively dialogue produced as many innovative suggestions as there were points of view. Certain ideas seemed to constantly crop up, though: that a campus grand jury be instituted, that a full-time legal advisor be hired, and that Security deal mainly with crimes involving victims, not property-damage crimes. All seemed to agree that the role of the campus "peace officer" needs a new definition. However, there was considerable debate as to the type of investigative service required. Debate also centered on the power that campus judicial bodies should have, with many feeling that the- should be empowered to summon any person necessarj In hear a particular case. Student-conduct records were discussed, one suggestion being that they not be used in judging guilt but rather in determining the sentences of convicted offenders. Much remains to be decided upon, and this will be the work of the Steering Committee. Workshop Chairman Ken Kurzweil called the discussions a success, and they were, but this does not belittle the responsibility that the Steering Committee must exercise in upcoming weeks. The committee numbers about thirteen persons, including students, faculty, and administrators. Kurzweil hopes to see a program developed and, in some degree, implemented, before he graduades in June. The committee has a great deal to work with because of this last weekend, but seeks additional comment from all corners of the campus. Any information and opinion can be submitted lo the committee through Kurzweil. Bringing Yon ilic liesi CONTEMPORARY MUSIC!...hiilerKiiiimcnl!... DANCING!

Coughlin by Joan L. Zuckerman President Benezet reported to the University Senate on Monday that he is still "sweating it out" as he waits to hear of the legislature's decision on the budget. Rodney Hart. Director of Admissions, delivered a report on the undergraduate admission situation in which he pointed to an increase in freshman applications for 1970. He said that only a small number of acceptance and rejection notices have been sent out, and that the rest will be sent after they receive the complete results of the Regents Scholarship Exam, For the first time at Albany State, the number of students in the freshman class will not have to be limited because of a lack of housing space. According to a letter from the Housing Office that is being sent to the incoming class of '75, "we are expecting to open a new residence quadrangle on our uptown campus and with other vacancies, should not experience difficulty in accomodating any undergraduate student desiring to live on campus." As of January 29, the Processing Center had received 11,631 applications for admission in September 1971. According to Rodney Hart, the new Director of Admissions, 2400 new students are expected to be admitted. 1200 will be freshman, 300 will be EOP students, and 900 will be transfers. Since freshmen are no longer required to live in University housing, not all of these students are expected to apply for dormitory rooms. With the 1100 new beds that will be available with the completion of Indian Quad, space can be provided for 1600 new on-campus students. Twenty-four hundred new students will bring the Albany student body to 13,000. The campus was originally designed to accommodate 10,000 students, and the question is not whether there will be enough living space, but how much farther the faculty and academic facilities can be stretched. Reporting on the SUNY Senate m e e t i n g in Buffalo, Joseph Norton told of ;i proposal for "roving students." Under this program students would take courses throughout the SUNY •ystem. Also discussed there was a proposal concerning state wide governance by students, faculty, and administration. An issue that provoked controversy centered around the rejection of transfer credit for ROTC courses. Senator Kendall, ex pressing particular concern, tried to bring to the fore more complete details and finally seconded a motion to hold discussion on the issue at the next Senate meeting. The Graduate Academic Council reported that the recommended Ph.D. programs in Library Science and Anthropology have been approved^-effeclive June 15, 1971. It was also noted that prelaw advisement is given on campus by Robert Gibson, despite an earlier statement that there was no such service available. Registration Apathy? BUFFALO AP Erie County election officials said Tuesday they're disappointed thai so few 18 to 20-year-olds have registered to vote. They said that of the 150,000 in that age bracket in the county, only 3,000 have registered so far. Election Commissioners James R. Lawley and Edward J. Mahoney said in a statement: "Quite frankly, we in the Board of Elections have been disappointed at the lack of interest on the part of 1H, 19 and 20-year-olds" lo register. "Many reasons have been suggested lor this apathy," they said, "but we feel that for the most part the young people are disenchanted because of the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court's decision does not allow them to vote until 1972, which will be the first federal election." The Supreme Court approved the lower voting age for federal elections, but left it to each state to fix the minimum age limit for state and local elections. In New York, voters will be asked this fall whether they want to approve a constitutional amendment granting 18-year-olds the right to vote in state und local elections. Discussion was varied concerning a proposed "Outstanding Teocher's Award." The proposal provided for a stipend of $2,000 each for the selected teachers. The award was labeled as a necessary incentive by one Senator, white others questioned its claimed effectiveness. Certain specific objections were raised including: selection of committee members who were nominated would be entitled to choose their own successor; the awurd could be given to the same individual for two consecutive years; and no specific qualifications for nominees were listed. The bill was sent back to the committee to be rewritten. • photo service The meeting ended with an expression of sympathy concerning the death of Robert Fairbanks, a late member of the Graduate School of Public Affairs at SUNYA.
