officials were operating under
emergency strains.
It was not until January 22,
1971 that Mayor Erastus Corning
announced that the cleanup
would cost a "minimum" of
$300,000 in addition to the
$239,000 already budgeted for
snow and ice removal. The mayor
said a special section of the law
allowed him to bond the emergency expense and the amount rose
to $500,000 when the bond issue
was presented to the Common
Council for approval in February,
meaning the total cost had now
risen to well over $700,000.

Council Considers Proposal
For Non-Mandatory Board
by Allen Altman
Next year resident students may have the option of taking board
- -goodman
The Living Area Affairs Commission's proposal calling for the
separation of room and board
plans and making the board plan
non-mandatory was the center of
discussion at Thursday night's
Central Council meeting.
Robert Cooley, Executive Director of the Faculty Student
Association, appeared at the meeting to answer questions and to
clarify his position.
The consequences that would be
in abolishing the
mandatory plan were discussed in
Cooley's opinion was that if
room and board plans were separated, the price of board, which is
already being increased by 5%
next year, would have to be raised
even further.
Cooley also suggested that it
might be possible to go to a
straight cash basis in all cafeterias,
eliminating the contract meal plan
entirely. The result of this plan
would be to raise prices of food
even more.

who are very famous in their fields who don't have

also close to the materials in his field."
Perlmutter slated that, "the eight year span
between high school and college needs a major
overhaul." He noted his dislike of the highly
structured educational system which requires " x "
numbers of credits to graduate, and went tm to say,
"courses are a means not an end." "One's progress
should be evaluated by his achievement in large
areas rather than in pieces," he added.
The dean would like to see a de-emphasis of the
lecture system. He felt that the undergraduate your*
should allow for more independent study, and more
off campus field work and experiences. Perlmutter
also stated that he would like to see more seminars
and small group discussions.
"I love teaching," stated Perlmutter. "I've maintained a full teaching career while I've been dean,"
he concluded.
Dr. O. William Perlmutter will leave his position as

"I feel that I could be more effective as u member
of Ihe faculty," commented Perlmutter, "The lime
was ripe for a change in leadership," he added.
Perl inn Iter worked extensively with I lie univer
sity's international studies program this year. He
staled, "this year I was not doing the day to day
administrative chores."
Perlmutler was instrumental in forming the freshman summer language program which allows a
student to go abroad to pursue study in any of six
differeul languages. The program grants close to a
semester's credit to an Incoming freshman enrolled
in Ihe program. Perlmutter eventually hopes to see

to 1 0% of the university.
The clean stated that he would like to see Albany

plan, Food Service wouldn't be
able to predict student demand
and plan ahead.
The effects that a separate board
plan would have on the dorms
also entered into the discussion.
Dick Wesley, Central Council
Member, pointed out that the
dorms are incapable of handling
any more electrical equipment that
would come about as a result of
student cooking. Due to inadequate electricity in the dorms, any
increase in refrigerators or hot
plates could- cut off all electricity
in the dorms. Furthermore, the
dorms would turn into dirty rat infested areas from the cooking of
food as it has occurred in other
colleges that have tried the separate board plan. This would lead
to serious health problems in the
dorms which couldn't be tolerated.
Mike Lampert, Vice President of
Student Association, brought out
the point that whatever is decided
about the separate room and
board plan, it will infringe upon
the rights of somebody.
Though Cooley cited that he
had no personal objections to the
separate room and board plan, he
wanted everyone involved to be

"It gets me in the gut. I can no longer take this
kind of fcallousness of this racist policy in Vietnam as
part of America. The war is not ending just because
Americans are not dying."
"For most Americans, the war is marginal. The
war doesn't mean as much to them as what they eat
for breakfast or what they watch on television." To
Father James Murphy and Ken Ediund, after meeting with principals of the Paris Peace Talks and
representatives of various church and student groups
from Asia, the Vietnam war is a personal concern.
"1 can understand why Father Berrigan took the
position he did after returning from Vietnam,"
Father Murphy continued. "The issue is so clear. We
are in the wrong!"
Ken Ediund, who represents the Capital Area
Peace Center, said, "The American public has been
told that through Vietnamization, the war will end.
Vietnamization is only changing the color of the
trigger finger. Our presence will continue through
American men, American arms, and American
money. We will still be causing civilian casualties
and prolonging the war."
"Most Americans have never heard the other side.
We listened to the North Vietnamese. The issue in
America is to get out. Everybody wants us out
except the Saigon Government. How can we get out
by invading two other countries? I think most
Americans are looking for an end of this war!"
The Vietnamese are very nationalistic. "They
don't want foreign intervention," Futher Murphy
summarized. "I don't think we've gotten the whole
story of the war. The only impression we got," after
the week long conference in Paris, "was Americans
weren't wanted in Vietnam."
"The Buddhists and Catholics don't always agree
and neither always agrees with the NLF; but, all
agree Americans must get out. We found more
hostility to Americans than to the North Vietnam-

SUNYA bends over backwards in its attempts to appear as a
benevolent open-minded university. Very little restrictions are placed
on either the political or curricular areas, and school sponsored
volunteer social programs allow students to partake in social work
(with credit) beneficial to the under privileged people in the Albany
The true nature of the university is quite detached from the image
which it creates. The university is a forum where racist and
anti-working class ideology is taught in almost every course. It is a
place where police go to receive advanced instruction on how to be
"professional", i.e. the best ways to infiltrate radical groups, foster
interracial strife, and in general, the most effective ways to maintain
state power for the ruling class.
For the workers, the university doesn't even attempt a facade but
acts according to its true nature as a tool of the ruling class. The case
of Bill Krupka is but the latest example of the repression which
SUNYA administers to its workers. Because Bill did not treat his boss
like God, Bill is to be fired on April 1, forced to join the growing
ranks in America's oldest tradtion, unemployed workers. It is the duty
of students to see the true nature of SUNYA and unite with the
struggle of the campus workers since harrassment is the order of the
day rather than the exception.
This task will not be easy by any means, for the university has
almost everything in its favor. In Bill's case, he was forced to sign a
statement agreeing he was an unsatisfactory worker, only Lo find out
later that by doing so, he "legally" gave the university the right to fire
him. Neither will the university sit back and watch students and
workers fighting together without using all its resources in an attempt
to drive a wedge between the two groups. To insure Bill's job, and
eventually that of all workers at SUNYA, students must actively
struggle to expose the university, and through mass action demand
that Bill not be fired and all harrassment of campus workers end.
Don't fire Bill Krupka.

ese or the Viet Cong."
Who represents the Vietnamese? Father Murphy
claims the Paris Peace Talks are stalled over this
issue. "Each side says the other side is irrational.
Saigon claims legitimacy. The North Vietnamese say
the Saigon Government is nothing but an extension
of the U.S. There can be no cease fire until the
Americans leave. A cease fire means the continuation of the American pressure and that is what the
war Is about!" Father Murphy quoted a member of
the American delegation to the Paris Peace Talks as
saying, "If you think this is a civil war, you'll never
understand the U.S. position."
While the Paris Peace Talks and the war they hope
to resolve drag on, the fate of the prisoners of war
haunts the American public. Hanoi claims the
American prisoners of war are war criminals. Despite this, Hanoi also claims the prisoners are being
well treated and "get better rations than North
Vietnamese citizens!
Hanoi has told Ambassador Bruce to set a date for
the withdrawal of U.S. forces, "then we will have a
cease fire, then we will release prisoners. If you
can't tell us this week, then come back next week."
Ediund urges, "We must change the course of this
country; if not, we are going to make such a vast
commitment we are not going to be able to take
care of ourselves." Ordinary people are not gaining
anything from foreign policy. "You can easily see
the critical problems in our society."
Father Murphy challenges us to "grow out of the
idea of building an American Empire. Nothing we
can do short of dropping an atomic bomb will beat
these people or stop them from fighting us. We must
withdraw immediately,"
"Our taxes pay for the war; our men fight the war.
Only through deep and continual protest of this war
by the American people will it end," declared
Father Murphy.
Ediund remarked, "We hear so much about
VieLnam, but learn so little."

"The Food Co-op is a dynamic force toward developing community
spirit and community protection against capitalist oppression of the
consumer." Many such co-ops are now in existence throughout the
A group of people in the Albany community found wholesale food
markups in retail stores as high as one hundred to three hundred
percent. In response they opened a Food Co-op four weeks ago at 111
Dove Street in order to end exploitation by local merchants.
The Food Co-op process is simple. Members of the co-op go to the
local wholesale markets on Tuesdays and purchase bulk quantities of
eggs, vegetables and fruits. They return to 111 Dove Street, the co-op
center, and fill orders requested by people in the community. The
produce is retailed at wholesale price. A twenty percent service charge
is attuched to cover overhead costs such as rent (forty dollars per
month), electricity, heat, and paper bags. Profits are directed toward a
better and an expanded service.
Interested students and community members supervise the co-op.
Their services are available to everyone.
The center is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 3 p.m. to 8
p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Anyone interested in participating is requested to go to the co-op
center and sign up.

FIVE CENTS off campus
by Kenny Hoar
An ASP Column
Dear Lord, I'm in the process of writing a book entitled Symbolic
Representation of Smut, and the plot appears to be thickening. Words
the consistency of molasses flow from the bowels of this pen.
I had been walkin' that crooked road that runs along the ridge
between the twin valleys of degeneration and respectablitily. And
when it came to heading me off at the pass, it was discovered I hadn't
even gotten there, and wasn't about to either.
Shuffling down that road in the old days before the fight, knowing
damn well the nervous side of frustration, bein' so sure lhat there
hasn't been an unlocked door in this world for plenty of time. And
yet there is nothing in life that holds half the measure of sweetness as
the clashing of wills and the struggle of spirits.
Dear Lord, I'm writing a book and the pages have grown larger willi
each word, and sheer age knifes its way through every line. It seems
like you play one nolc after the nexl and all of a sudden there's a
song. It's crazy 'bout the way things fall and Iwist and turn, only the
reality changing, the subslance of things being like glued to the inside
of skulls.
Hey Ma, lei my soul run free, I got this ilehin' to be knowin' if
there's anything al all that can't be beat...if there's anything al all thai
can't be bent into accomodating positions.
If you look at the whole world as just a line, wo arc all in the
middle... relatively speaking a sphere has no beginning and end.
Geometrically speaking ligris, euphrates is the origin of the species.
I could bring myself lo he sick to death of do's and dou'ls. and
right's and wrong's and rcspeetablilily. Satiation with conceptualisation comes somewhere closely behind finding out about 1-iiistein. I
have to believe it would have lo be weird lo sec everything wearing ils
righlful sign... .to be invisible behind my signs. La. la. la, lalala. la. La.
la, la, lalala, la.
The electrolysis of souls began awhile back, and anyone can plainly
see that the energy level has risen enormously, which means we all
must be gelling smaller, and nutrition is must an illusion. II'we are
going to trust the IBM we are going lo have lo remember we are only
as smarl as we think we used lo be.
Deep in my heart I can still feel the chemistry of llmsc warm days in
February, and the smiles big as oceans lhal run by in cycles like in a
shooting gallery, remembering now quite well villages exploding on
the ground beneath me, my plane screaming out of range.
The mixture thai come oul the best somehow don'l have recipes,
and yel I am envious of the beauty of order of perfection... But there
is nothing so perfect as an oul of place warm day. or the sweet thrill
of knowing there is nothing left to overcome, save the lingering belief
thai somewhere, somehow, someone has fell it necessary to bo
absolutely sure.
Arbitrarily Number II
Oh mom, the times are wear in' heavy on my soul, faceless bodies
scurry all about me-iny mind's about lo break. I'm a time bomb, bin
my clock is running fast. To blow before I wrap my aims around jnsi
any sloney pillar would he more than I could bear.
Philosophy and sanity are dueling each other in my brain; and when
my pieces are scattered on the wind, only then will it be known if the
philosopher or lunatic had the upper hand.
Words don't pain such pictures as they used to . I'm immersed in the
political, the fading foam on the greasy dishwater. I know there is no
clean water left to make us pure. I know there is no polities to lift us
above the filth of our institutions.
I can trace the reasons for tilings all the way back to when I was first
told, but now they all double back on themselves and contradict. I
was supposed to be socialized, and I'm ready to rip society up by the
roots. 1 am not alone, 1 was supposed to be trained to be one of the
leaders of tomorrow, and I feel oppressed. I am not alone. No one
wants leaders, the world wauls androids, but who's lo guide the way
when all the old grey heads bow for the last lime.
When ninety per cent of the scientists the world has ever know are
alive today, when technology reaps its own fruits seconds alter it
bears them, how in God's name can our institutions gel away with
taking years, decades to cure their own ills? The ability of men to
comprehend statistics and abstractions is incredible, but when il
comes to focusing his eyes and ears on the problem, when it comes lo
trusting his own intuition, my god men are helpless. Are we just blind,
or stubborn, or so lacking' in self confidence lhal we have lo
measure our disquieting thoughts with the advice of experts and
statistical conclusions? Are we all functional Spiro Agnews?
Is there one concrete reason why professors are hired or fired in
proportion lo lire pages they've contributed to the professional
journals or to the number of dusty pieces of parchment that line their
office walls? Doesn't everyone know that the real value of teachers is
measured in their ability to relate material in a human way so lhal il
can be grasped with the best facility by the greatest number of
persons? Doesn't everyone know lhal the more time a professor
spends in the sterile solitude in his lab or office, the less lime he
dedicates to his students. A professor whose primary concern is not
Ivis students is not a professor, but atheorist, a writer .a scientist, and
adeterranllo learning m a university.
lire economics of this situation supplies lire necessity lor using
college campuses lor research, but it does not necessitate lhal these
people claim priority lo leaching poisition. The loss of human reason
in this situation is completely out of phase with the concept of the
university being al the forefront ol intellectual growth. The extent lo
which Ihe universities have become slaves lo their self-imposed
regulations, makes a mockery of the idea that with enough
knowledge, man can tree himself from his chains.
Mom, I am living with your ideals, the ones lhal were kepi as
memories after the demise of the live cenl cigar. Ma, I'm reading
about how actions speak louder than words, and waidling people who
try to act reap Ihe tears of frustration, while Ihe publishers are
carrying off Ihe spoils of victory. Ma, I'm trying hard to get the rules of
democracy lo apply lo the institutions that govern my life, and I've
found lhal if you're young, you don't have unalienable lights, you
don't even have the insight to distinguish wrong from light, good from
bad. or hoi from cold. Ma. I've boon feeling and living the American
dieam Willi all my might, and all lhat conies down the road is aloi of
slut. Ami Ma. I am mil alone.

Day Care At SUNYA
Wednesday, March 17, 1971
In Fiscal Danger
by Barbara Edelman
Due to Ihe proposed cuts in the budget for next
year, the Day Care Center may have to be closed.
According lo lilaire Barret, the director of the Day
Care Center, the outlook is very grim.
A minimum of $7300 is needed to keep the
Center running and Barrel does nol feel that this
money will be forthcoming. Another reason for the
possible shutdown centers around public opinion.
Many people object lo the Day Care Center as they
feel that it might be detrimental for a child lo be
separated from ils mother for any length of lime.
However, according to Barret, the environment of
the Day Care Center allows children a large amount
of freedom lo develop. She feels that the Day Care
t'enler has so far been a success; both the children
and Ihe parents seem to like it. Many parents have
come in to express their satisfaction with the
The Day Care Center, located in the first floor of
Pierce Hall, is only for ihe children of SUNYA
students. Due lo limited facilities and budget
demands, Ihe Center cannot accommodate all the
parents who apply. Il can only help the people with
the most critical of financial needs.
The Center can only accommodate 45 children at
one lime. However, since nol all the children are
there for the entire day, il can actually serve around
70 children. Il is the only Day Care Center in four
counties that accepts children under .5 years of age.
According to Barret, most of these mothers would
not be able to go to school if Day Care Center
services were nol available. Men whose wives are
supporting them through school will also be affected if the Center closes.
Barrel concluded her remarks by staling, "There
has been a great deal of talk about meeting people's
needs but whenever the budget has to be cut,
people's programs go first."
Budget problems effect even those who cannot yet add. Albany's Day Care Center faces
gloomy fact that it may not have funds to operate next year.
Gay Lib Marches
For Civil Rights
Approximately 2,500 persons demonstrated Sunday al the Capitol in support of Ihe Gay Liberation
Front's demands for liberalized laws on homosexuality.
"Dignity Not Bondage" was among Ihe many banner slogans sported by the crowd that numbered about
as many women as men.
A female speaker drew approving laughter from the audience when she declared: "We're here to tell the
legislature what we all know. The gay life is a good life and a healthy life. And it's a whole lot of fun too."
The demonstration was for the most part orderly although some eggs and snowballs were thrown by
hecklers. No one was hurt.
Capitol police were present, and the building which is usually
open to visitors on Sundays was closed as a precautionary measure.
The legislature was in recess, having broken off meetings last
Many of the demonstrators arrived in chartered buses from New
York City. Some attended an ecumenical prayer service for the
success of their effort before gathering in front of the Capitol.
It May Have Passed
by Jeffrey P. Bernstein
"Mom, I am living with your ideals...''
Approximately 2,500 men and women marched on the Capital Sunday in support of the Gay Liberation
Front's requests for liberalized laws on homosexuality.
The proposed Student Association Constitution defeated in last
week's referendum may not, in fact, have been defeated.
Although the number of those favoring adoption of the new
constitution to those opposed was overwhelmingly greater than the 60%
required for approval, the referendum, it was thought at first, did not
attract the 20% of the voting student populace, necessary to validate
the election. The first count indicated that 1,562 people had voted,
which is 17 short.
However, a second count now records 1,60-1 votos east with 1,240
pros. This would decisively validate the referendum and approve the
proposed constitution. Another recount will soon bo made.
But several complications have arisen.
Central Council, in an emergency meeting last night, acted in an
advisory capacity lo examine voter eligibility and violations in last
week's referendum.
