Attica Protest
Draws 100
by Tracy Eagan
by Mark
The minute you walked into the place, it hit y o u .
The Fifties were upon us again. Amongst all those
15170's freaks there they were; hair slicked back,
cigarettes dangling out of their mouths, dripping
with grease. Donned in ripped lee shirts, tight black
jeans, dull black leather booUi, dark glasses, even an
occasional leather jackel { w i t h skull and crossbones
insignia on live back, of course), they displayed
themselves lo the rear nl the audience. Of course, if
thai didn't attract y o u , the chains around the neck
might have. And lei's not forgel about the symbol
of the |0f>O's greaser: I he black comb in tin- back
pocket. The only thing missing was ;i molorcych'.
The greaser girls Were not as predomineiil, but
added to the atmosphere. All m all, it was a pretty
weird scene I mean it's been ,i long lime smce I was
al a concert where a good pail of the audience
looked like their bikes were parked outside. No, I
didn't see the Si ones a I All.illli Mini , bu I I Ills Ml re .is
hell reminded me of il Thai gu,s with live earrings
was really lo<. much Nevertheless I really got
the mood of the place soon enough. I walked In m j
seal, and the greaser ni'xl lo me yelled In his \rtt-\u\
carrying the hub cap,"(ley Angel, throw me my
knife, will y a ' " " .
The greasers wen- becoming increasingly un
pahent, and by I Ins lime il was becoming quite
noticeable. Finally al about Id o'clock, Sha Na Nil
Walked on slage Now when a group walks on slage
these days, the custom is to turn their back on tin*
audience, and make like there's n<> one lliere When
Sha Na Na walks o u l , the show begins. One guy
spits mi ihe floor, another displays his forefinger
nil her conspicuously, while yel another burps into
Ihe mike I knew they came lo play, and play they
did. Uy this time, they have nine guys on stage, and
immediately start info a familiar rock'n'roll rill".
From the side conic the shows mosl visual feature,
three guys in gold lame suits, thai looked painted
on. Sha-Na-Na breaks into their first number,
'•''Sluike, Kalfle and R o l l " , and the show begins. The
gold lames begin lo move, coordinating their hands
and body movements, so Ihal Ihe fid's are upon us
again. The guitarist begins a twisl, and Ihe pianist
starts some Jerry Lee Lewis antics. A h , Murray the
K, where are you now thai we need you'*
The first guilansl looks like he just came oul of
the pool room, with shirt, tie and sunglasses The
saxophone player is a large greasy figure, armed
with undershirt, and snake belt. Tin-guy al I heeler
piano bears some resemblance to Jerry Lee Lewis,
especially when lie begins to move. The guys in the
painted suits look like something out o f Ringling
Bros, circus. They're clearly satirical, and the
audience know it. Its more than being just camp
because they are really fine in a musical sense. The
guitarists truly surprised me, because they were
really good, especially on "Walk Don't R u n " .
Besides playing well, they did the "duck w a l k " and
Ihe Twisl as they played. The sax came through
clearly and the pianisl did some fine Jerry Lee
Next came "Tears on My Pillow", complete with a
breakdown of the lead singer in Ihe middle of the
number. Il dirln'l quite bring (ears to my eyes, hut I
laughed quite a hit. "Teen A n g e l " came o n , ami
over drama 11/.a l i o n , was no I even ihe word lo
describe i l . There were ] 2 greasers all bidding their
hands up lo the sky singing, "Teen Angel... can you
hear me'.'" There was a real fine Presley imitation ot
" H o c k " . The singer did the whole hip
shaking bit Inn They did a version of "Blue M o o n " ,
quite similar In ihe original version by the Marcels
in 19(12, only this linn-, the lead singer clammed on
the guitarist in Ihe middle of I hi' number 1 musi say
it really looked as if Sha-Na-Na were enjoying
themselves. After this, Ihe bassisl for 1 lie group
came up lo Ihe mike In do Ihe lead vocal on
"Teenager in Love" Al this point in the show, Ihe
audience began t o join in on I be choruses. The
singer seemed lo have been drowned out by lhem
through mosl of the song "Sixteen Candles" was the
next number, originally done by the Crests in Ihe
lale fid's. But now it was some lime for some
r o c k ' n ' r o l l , and they exploded into "Whole Lot a
Shaking doing O n " , complete with piano antics,
and Ihe whole group breaking out into T w i s l ,
"Silhouettes on the Shade" was done competently,
but it wasn't until "Ureal Balls of Fire", Ihal the
whole audience got up and clapped. They also did
" T e l l Laura I Love Her", followed by "Kama Lama
Ding Dong". In the middle of Ibis one, the group
began to march around the stage, just twisting and
shouting. Then, they went into "Walk, D o n ' ! R u n " ,
with the two guitarists playing on their knees. By
now, Ihe entire audience was jumping and singing,
and when they weul info " A l the H o p " , everyone
moved their asses. They went off, and when they
came back for the encore, the pianist shouted with a
true greaser look on his face, " I ' v e just got one thing
to say lo all you fucking hippies out there: Hock
and Roll is here lo s t a y ! "
"We demand that (he state immediately
inform families of the
prisoners at Attica whether or not their men are alive or dead, injured
or well.
We demand that the state immediately
allow attorneys into the
prison to counsel the men who took part in the uprising.
We demand thai the state allow the leaders of Ihe uprising access
now to news media, so Ihal they can tell their side of Ihe story to the
pu blic.
We demand that any panel set up to investigate the events at Atlica
must include representatives
of Ihe communities
from which the
prisoners came. Representatives selected by their (prisoners) families,
and members of the group of observers who were at the prison
throughout the disturbances.
We demand a public declaration by the governor that those who
look part in the rebellion
will be granted full amnesty,
administrative and criminal.
And lastly, we demand the immediate resignation of Commissioner
Russell (I Oswald who has admitted thai he ordered the armed assault
on the prisoners, and is therefore responsible for the deaths o/, now.
forty tiro men, and the grave wounding of countless others. "
These demands, read by Rev. Prank Snow, were- approved by a
crowd o f approximately one-hundred
al the " A t t i c a Massacre"
demonstration Wednesday morning. Some members of the group
wanted Gov. Rockefeller's name added to that of Oswald's.
After the reading of demands on the steps o f Ihe T w i n Towers
Building in d o w n t o w n Albany about 70 people went inside. There the
demonstrators asked to see "a responsibh officer of this particular
department." A Mr. Byrd told Ihe group " i f you wait here very quietly,
we have sent your request down to the commissioner's office and we
expect an answer very s h o r t l y . "
The Director o f Manpower and Employer Relations brought the
answer. "We'll accept your written demands, or if you prefer. Deputy
Commissioner Wim van Eekercn will meel with you
. . .you
; of
the library, on the c o n d i t i o n that tl
est o f you will leave I lie
building. "
To the displeasure of some, the group stood on the principle that all
who desired to see the commissioner should be allowed into the
meeting. Thus the demands were not presented to van Kekeren and
the demonstrators returned to the streets. One reaction to the
Correction Officer's proposal was tliis..."thegroup wauled to relate lo
the Department o f Corrections individually hut the Deputy Com
missioner would not meet w i t h the group - instead he submitted a
counter offer to meet with five or six representatives. The refusal lo
meet with the large group was a had lactic on his pari because each
representative Ihal was here wanted to relate lo an institution, hut
wanted lo personalize that relationship through the figure of the
Deputy Commissioner, Commissioner or Governor,..and now il (the
confrontation) is only to be deferred to a later date. That's for sure."
One positive thing did come o u l of that demonstration though. Six
members of the Peace Education course at SUNY dressed as "...the
spectre of death, and several o f the dead," formed an eerie procession
and established the vitality and potential o f guerilla theatre as a way
About 100 people, mainly students, rallied in downtown Albany last Wednesday to protest the Attica
deaths. They demanded the immediate resignation of Commissioner Russell G. Oswald.
Budget Cuts Hurt Albany;
Construction Is Halted
by Roy Lewis
Budgetary cuts promise to plague the S U N Y A financial picture for the coming academic year. The
stale wide SUNY freeze initialed by the Legislature last spring has been further compounded by the
President's Wage and Price Freeze of August I 2.
According to .John Harligan, Budget Director here at S U N Y A , the only direct effect o f the President's
action has been the fact that the faculty has not received their normal salary increment due on September
I. Whether these increments will take effect after November 1 2 is still unclear. In addition, no reallocation
of jobs has been approved by the Division of the Budget in light o f the President's action. Harligan did
mention that any increase in t u i t i o n , fees or room and board rates for the current academic year all
predated the President's action and are therefore legal.
of getting a message to the people.
Sue is having a lough lime
When the budge I is prepared, il is divided into 150 budgetary
accounts, (it) of which are academic in nature. The funds proposed for
these 150 accounts are all set up within ceilings set down by Ihe
Central Office. In order to guard ugainsl misappropriation, the
Administration is faking steps to find and weed out inefficient and
costly items in ihe budget. In addition, since Albany is a state agency,
it is strictly audited by the Stale Comptroller. Yet nevertheless, real
cost increases coupled with inflation spells cost increases for the
student Furthermore, Albany is not budgeted for inflation in service
areas (telephone, fuel, eleel n c i l y , etc..) and Ihe University must raise
Ihe revenues to meel these rising costs.

The Stale freeze paints a yet gloomier picture for S U N Y A . First of
all, there are no new construction funds available this year, resulting
in the tabling or scrapping of such projects as the West Podium
Extension and the Field House. Secondly, no additional faculty
positions have been funded or approved l o carry the extra student
load. The >l() to 50 new faculty/staff faces represent turnover. In
actuality, there are fewer faculty/staff members working here this
year than in '70-'71. Part of this attrition is due to the fact that 27
faculty lines had to be banked for Ihe current year in order to

Attica Tragedy
Spurs Reaction
Indian Quad Awaits Completion
by Paul B a c h m a n
by Mai da Or higher
Although Indian Quad awaits final completion, o n e may find that quite a life already exists on the
newest of Albany's quadrangles.
U p o n entering the perimeter of the quad, a visitor confronts several ditches and mud pools. T h e
courtyard displays a vacant tower lacking both the light and sound of the other three towers. If you
choose to enter one of the completed low rise complexes, you may smell an air of newness, the result o f
freshly c u t wood and molded concrete. An obvious trait of this new quad is the corridor system; the
bathroom facilities are accessible by means of hallway doors.
But h o w d o the residents themselves feel about life in Indian Quad? Several students provided the
following information about their residence in the quad. Pelt t o be among the favorable characteristics of
Indian Quad is the noticeable 1 lack of loud music and noisy people. In s h o r t ,
an air of serenity
pervades the area. Because of the limited population, residents have been able t o a c q u a i n t themselves in a
rather personal way.
Another unique part of Indian Quad life is the 4+2 program. This program places responsibility for dorm
operations on the residents of the t w o coed halls. The 4+2 program sponsors their own social gatherings,
parties and picnics. Generally, the participants of the 4+2 plan seemed quite pleased to be a part of this
But when will Indian Quad
finally reach completion? Walter
Tisdale, head of campus planning,
says that by January 1, 1972 the
tower will finally be ready for

Presently, the basements of two
low rise units are incomplete but

still being discussed. Nevertheless,
the dining r o o m , situated in the
b a s e m e n t of Indian Q u a d ' s tower,
has been open since the beginning
of the 1971-72 year.

And Now Attica
First the riot.
Then the army.
Then the massacre.
The screams of the dying and the eyewitness stories
and the popular indignation.
The pious and impartial investigations.
The absurd declarations by the authorities ...
And the inevitable whitewash.
Chicago. Kent State. Attica. Do we once again
demonstrate and declare moratoria and write
editorials? Do we again allow things to return to
Not again. Not this time. This time wc march
downtown on Thursday and wc tell the world that this
time we want those responsible to pay for their crime
of murder.
And in the meantime, find out all you can about
Attica and the forty murdered men. Before the press
begins to print the proclaimed lies of desperate men
covering up their hands in an attempt-to hide the
blood stains. For they'll convince you that nothing
evil happened if you let them.
Remember how the Chicago convention police riot
changed to a "militant uprising of students" despite
the eyewitness accounts of what really happened. And
no policemen were found guilty, and eight men found
innocent were sentenced for "contempt."
Remember how four students were murdered by
the National Guard at Kent State, yet despite
conflicting findings John Mitchell found everyone
involved innocent of any crime?
And lastly, remember Attica.... remember it well,
and keep your memory of it alive. Because this time,
unlike all the other times, someone's going to pay for
the murders. And it's not going to
"contemptuous" militants, either.

Once upon a midnight dreary, uuring the year 1917, a student in
the data of '19 was llttin' around with nothln' to do. "Hey gang, let's
take lome of that mandatory tax money those guys collect and
found the Albany Student Press. Let's put it In Draper (since
relocated to Campus Center 3261 and when the University discovers
the phone let's make its numbers 4 5 7 2 1 9 0 & 2194."
The gang bought the Idea. So, now, the lord high editor-in-chief and
protector of the first amendment will let you put communications in
the ASP, If you play by his rules (which limit communications to 300
wordsl. The morel of this fractured fairy tall: PEACEI
The breaking off of negotiations and t h e invasion of Attica
Prison by the State Police and
National Guard brought a result
anyone could have foretold: 30
prisoners m u r d e r e d and 9 hostages
killed; murdered by Rockerfeller's
and O s w a l d ' s decision to invade
Attica. Murdered because at the
time the order came, the hostages
w e r e safe and negotiations with
the inmates could have c o n t i n u e d .
T h e m u r d e r s started a long time
ago and spring from the r o o t s of
o u r society.
P o o r e d u c a t i o n , e c o n o m i c disc r i m i n a t i o n , and injustice all cont r i b u t e t o the realistic feeling of
p o o r people that the only things
they can get are the things they
can take. In the c o u r t s and prisons
these injustices are intensely magnified. Persons with m o n e y get
out o n bail—poor people sit in
jails for up to a y e a r a w a i t i n g trial.
People with m o n e y can afford
good l a w y e r s - poor people got
virtually unrepresented. In general
so-called white collar crimes, such
as pricefixing and graft, are not
viewed with the same harshness as
crimes of survival are. In prison,
an institution that few rich criminals ever see, a poor person is
pushed even further from the belief that he can attain a d e c e n t life
in America.
n u n will be through renewal o f
the entire society. For now, however, reforms such as those demanded by the Attica prisoners
are necessary, simply t o meet the
basic human rights and needs they
retain as men. Rehabilitation, no't
revenge, is what prisons should be
about. "To achieve this end we
need a government now that is
less interested in power, expan•ion of private wealth, and public
government that is
truly interested in the preservation of h u m a n life.

T o u n d e r s t a n d why the prisoners m a d e tile d e m a n d of a m n e s t y
we only have lo look us far as the
experiences of prisoners at Auburn, T c m b s in New York City,
Soledad, and San Q u e n t i n . Prison
officials first agree to consider
d e m a n d s hut begin repression
once tile situation returns to " n o r m a l . " T h e mistrust Attica prison
ers felt towards Uoekerfeller and
his a d m i n i s t r a t i o n was not and is
nol different from the mistrust
you and I feel when they give us
promises. Rockerfeller decided to
move against the prisoners when
amnesty was still an unresolved
question , an issue that was concise
and t o the point, a d e m a n d that
could not be revoked ur modified.
Was this " q u i e t and decisive" action w o r t h the lives of thirtyseven plus men'.' We feel that even
if it took six m o n t h s , c o n t i n u e d
negotiations might have saved
these lives.
J u s t as the unrepresented in
and out of prison- are victims of
the society that exploits and uses
them, prison workers have bee o m e the p a w n s u f t h 0 s t a U ,

the anger prisoners feel against the

by Dan Grossman
Most s t u d e n t s at S U N Y A equate the campus security force with the
invisible men who spend their time giving out annoying parking
t i c k e t s . However, t h e security force performs m a n y more complex
duties t h a n t h e irate s t u d e n t s and professors w h o , having their cars
t o w e d a w a y , would t h i n k . Presently, the security force is staffed with
36 m e n , including a full-time investigator, and is o u t f i t t e d with t h r e e
patrol cars. Under t h e leadership of Director Williams, t h e c a m p u s
police are m a k i n g an effort t o c o p e with t h e rising rate of burglaries at
A c c o r d i n g t o Williams, m o s t thefts t h a t w e r e r e p o r t e d last year
o c c u r r e d in t h e suite r o o m s of t h e d o r m s . Carelessness is t h e major
cause and Williams s t a t e d t h a t p r o p e r t y loss t o the university and
s t u d e n t b o d y was over $ 2 0 0 , 0 0 0 . Burglaries are t h e major class of
crime o n c a m p u s a n d Williams a d m i t s t h a t t h e r e is very little his force
is able t o do o t h e r than t o w a r n the s t u d e n t s t o k e e p their d o o r s
l o c k e d . T h e total p r o p e r t y loss may have been greater, Williams
believes, due to t h e fact t h a t a large n u m b e r of thefts go u n r e p o r t e d .
With respect t o drugs, Williams feels t h a t heroin pushers pose the
m o s t serious t h r e a t t o c a m p u s life. However, he does n o t believe in,
and will n o t use, u n d e r c o v e r agents in his c o n t i n u i n g c r a c k - d o w n on
pushers. Williams feels t h a t " t i p s " c a n n o t be relied on and informant
t y p e s are highly suspect.
No Warrants for C a m p u s C o p s
R u m o r s have been circulating a r o u n d c a m p u s t h a t t h e r e has been a
change in the relationship b e t w e e n c a m p u s police and o t h e r law
e n f o r c e m e n t agencies. On S e p t e m b e r 1, u n d e r t h e Criminal P r o c e d u r e
Law, security Was stripped of its p o w e r t o e x e c u t e search and arrest
w a r r a n t s . F r o m this p o i n t o n , only Albany police, S t a t e T r o o p e r s , or
the Sheriff can carry o u t search and arrest w a r r a n t s . C a m p u s security
can arrest in s p o n t a n e o u s situations, such as a burglar caught in the
act. As always, Williams s t a t e d , his d e p a r t m e n t retains the p o w e r to
decide w h e n an arrest should be m a d e , except in situations w h e r e a
victim d e m a n d s t h a t his d e p a r t m e n t act. Arrests, he e m p h a s i z e d , are
a c t i o n s usually m a d e o n l y as a last resort. When asked if city or s t a t e
police could now e n t e r the c a m p u s w i t h o u t informing security,
Williams r e s p o n d e d t h a t legally they could, b u t t h a t they rarely do so.
Williams added t h a t he believqs his security force can handle m o s t
p r o b l e m s arising on c a m p u s w i t h o u t o u t s i d e i n t e r v e n t i o n . If the
necessity for a search or arrest warrant arose, the security office
would file for o n e d o w n t o w n . C a m p u s policy has been to limit search
warrants because of the possible r o o m for error and fear of arousing
the c a m p u s c o m m u n i t y .
Parking Still A Problem
Keeping the traffic moving ( a n d giving p l e n t y of t i c k e t s ) is o n e of
the major chores of c a m p u s security. Williams blames t h e lack of
parking space near t h e p o d i u m as t h e major p r o b l e m . Official parking
policy is t o give thirty d a y s p a y m e n t t i m e or be subject t o t o w - a w a y .
To retrieve a car o n c e it is t o w e d away will cost the individual t w l v e
dollars plus t a x . During t h e calendar year of 1970, security t o w e d
away 6 5 cars. At this p o i n t in 1 9 7 1 , over 75 cars have been r e m o v e d .
C o n t r a r y t o p o p u l a r belief, m o r e t e a c h e r s ' cars are t o w e d away than
those of s t u d e n t s . A new a d d i t i o n t o security's bag of tricks
c o n c e r n i n g traffic c o n t r o l is the gates t h a t have been p u t u p t o s t o p
traffic on limited access r o a d s a r o u n d t h e academic p o d i u m .
Increase in Crime Reported
Williams told t h e ISP t h a t an increase of 6 0 % in r e p o r t e d crimes
o c c u r r e d during t h e past year. T h e time w h e n security was n o t h i n g
m o r e than a small n i g h t - w a t c h m a n service is over. T h e p r o b l e m s
involved in keeping a growing college c o m m u n i t y crime-free have
increased. Williams discussed s o m e new p r o g r a m s t h a t he is instituting
to challenge t h e c r i m e rate. Increased patrols of q u a d areas and
parking lots will be in store and t h e e x p e c t e d acquisition of four m o r e
investigators will help the overloaded detective d e p a r t m e n t . Williams
feels t h a t it is i m p o r t a n t t h a t the s t u d e n t b o d y realize t h a t all people
who a t t e n d S U N Y A a r e n ' t loving or peaceful. He isn't o p t i m i s t i c ,
e x p e c t i n g t h e n u m b e r of r e p o r t e d c r i m e s t o increase. However, m o r e
m a n p o w e r , improved training and b e t t e r police m e t h o d s p r o m i s e t o
make the force m o r e professional.

"We have a real quality team,"
states the effervescent Munsey,
w h o has compiled a nine-year
mark o f 7 7 - 1 5 as Albany's cross
country major d o m o . "The kids
are out to finish our first 10 years
of thn sport in style, and spirit is
very high." There are s o m e 30
m e n c o m p e t i n g for s p o t s and
Munsey plans to keep 1 0 - 1 2 on
the varsity, with the rest comp r i s i n g Charlie Shrader's JV
The t o p four runners in preseason workouts have been freshman Brian Quinn (Buffalo), senior
Larry Frederick (Mohawk), Central Connecticut transfer S c o t t
Abercrombie (Peekskill), and senior Dennis Hackett ( H i l t o n ) .
Indicative of the team's strength
is the fact that Hackett, the
Dane's top runner the past two
years, is struggling to keep up
with the leaders. "He's running as
well, if not better than ever,"
Munsey notes, "but this is the
toughest competition he's ever
had here." ' Hackett holds the
school course records for 3.5 and
5 miles and has 15 career dual
meet victories. Last fall he was the
first Albany finisher in all but one
of the 10 races in which he
Quinn, w h o ran a 4 :20 mile at
Buffalo's St. Joseph High School,
is making a strong bid for the No.
1 slot his first year on campus.
Frederick appears t o have regained the form that made him
Albany's top runner as a freshman
and sophomore, before suffering a
severe broken leg t w o years ago.
Abercrombie sat out last year
after transferring, but he is a
proven runner against, stronger
Strongly challenging the first
four and providing the Danes with
depth t o spare are at least eight
men, including three returning lettermen. The vets are sophomore
DeMarco (Voorhcesville),
the only Albany runner t o beat
Hackett last year, but hampered
by a foot injury this fall; soph
John Koch (West Islip), and junior
Jo hn Stanton (Delmar).
Up from last year's JV team are
sophs Bill Sorel (Albany Cardinal
McCloskey) and Terry Slocum
(Horseheads), while junior J o h n
Comerford (Troy Catholic Central), is making a comeback alter
missing most of 1 9 7 0 due to
illness. H e - w a s the t o p freshman
runner t w o yenrs ago.
Boy's High products Peter Payne
and Arnie Shell, both juniors from
Brooklyn, were star half-milers on
last spring's unbeaten Albany
track team. They are trying to
make the switch t o the longer
Munsey has been pleased with
their progress so far.

Stephen H. Goldstein
and T o m Clingan
The following article is a compilation
of Associated Press dispatches as received in the offices of the Alhuny
Student Press between Monday and
Thursday of this week,
The riot begun following breakfast
last Thursday. It apparently stemmed
directly from an altercation Ihe nighi

with I lie ennviei landing in solitary
Hut wide-ranging put purled grievances of the convicts were rejected in
a series of demands, of which 28 were
agreed !o by Oswald. They ranged
from Ihe prison diet lo die application
of slate minimum wage laws in prison
workshops and a reorientation ol
guards toward better understanding ol
prisoners' problems.
Then on I riday. the convicts made
their demand for total amnesty, plus
the freedom and transportation of any
prisoners wishing to seek asylum in a
"nonimperinlistic country."
Another ol ihe so-called mediator.*,
admitted lo Attica al the rioters' request was Ralck Panther chairman
Hubby Scale, lie returned to California
Sunday, saying lie was delivering a
message from Attica prisoners to Ihe
Hlack Panther Central Committee.
Scale claimed the rioters' price foi

The governor stood bj in New York
during ihe J o n a s lo ihe Attica ciisis.
Complicating the amnesty demand
was the death Saturday ol William

At 8 a.m. Monday. Oswald met face
to face with one of ihe riot leaders,
Richard Clark. The commissioner presented him a written ultimatum which
read in part:
"I am anxious lo achieve a peaceful
resolution of the situation...! urgently
request you to reconsider my earlier
appeal I hat all hostages be released
immediately unharmed and you join
with rite in restoring order.
"1 must have your reply to this
urgent appeal within the hour. I hope
and pray your answer will be affirmarn
Clark repi icd simply that he woulc
consult ui h "ihe people's centra

Oswald explained thai in his opinion
"further delays would jeopardize Ihe
lives of and would threaten
ihe prison system of the slate."
The allotted hour passed, and the
cluck continued lo lick with no response from ihe rioters.

Slate Corrections Commissioner Russell G. Oswald confirmed Tuesday
night that nine hostages slain in the
rebellion died of gunshot wounds and
that no guns were found in the
possession of the prisoners.
Attica, N.Y. AP - New autopsies con
himed thai all hostages killed at Attica
slate prison died of gunshot wounds,
the New York Post said today.
In a dispatch from Attica the newspaper quoted Dr. Michael Baden,
acting chief medical examiner of New
York City, as saying, "The deaths had
been properly diagnosed as shootings."
Baden, working with Dr. Henry
Siegel id' Westchester County, was
called to Ihe prison when disputes
arose uvcr causes of death.
An undertaker signed a sworn statement saying that he had been unable to
find a bullet wound in guard Richard
According the the Post, Baden said.
"I did a complete reautopsy on Mr.
Lewis and we found i t - t h e bullet
bole to the satisfaction of everyone."
Albany, N.Y. AP-Gov. Rockefeller
said Thursday that he believed the nine
hostages who died al Attica Monday
were killed by crossfire from police
battling the rebellious convicts.
The governor commented at a news
conference alter a reporter told him he
understood that further examination
of the bodies showed that all had died
from gunshot wounds. That report had
not been officially confirmed.
And Rockefeller said he had not seen
the final report.
Hul. when pressed for his explanation
of the hostage deaths, in the light of
official statement that the prisoners
were not armed with guns, the governor said.
"I think that the hoslages who died
were caught in a crossfire."
lie said invading stale police converged on ihe prisoners from four
directions, some with instruct ion to
shoot prisoners who were threatening
lo execute hostages and others to
battle convicts manning barricades
"armed with spears, knives, el cetera."
Rockefeller said that "to me it's
extraordinary thai 28 men were saved
under these circumstances." lie said he
had been fearful that more would be
killed bin that he had no choice but lo
IT) lo rescue as many as possible.
Asked whether he thus regarded the
apparent police slum tings of the
hoslages as "justifiable homicide,"
Rockefeller at first demurred, saying
thai was a legal question. Asked then
whether he thought the deaths were •
mora I ly j u s t ified, "When you say
morally I certainly do."
Rockefeller said that there was no
indiscriinaie shooting by police but
that officers obviously bad difficulty
distinguishing hostages from prisoners
because all were clad in prison uniforms and that gas wits aroung.
The Governor met with the press
before convening a meeting o( ihe
legislature's Republican and Democratic leaders lo plan a full investigation of the events at Attica.
Rockefeller said he would recommend setting up an "impartially totally
representative committee of all elements in our stale" and consideration
of prisons reforms that would bold
protect the rights of prisoners and the
security ol guards.
The closed-door meeting was to get
underway in late afternoon.
Ihe governor also is to meet in New
York City Saturday with members of u
U.S. House of Represeutatvies Committee seeking information on the
Aliiea uprising.

Side one is a masterpiece
though. The opening cut "Give It
Everything You Got" is all Sly
Stone funk; a grinding wah-wah
pedal gets the song off the ground
and then vocalists Jerry laCroix
and Edgar Winter trade off the
vocal lines in respective growls and
shrieks. The brass keeps the song
in full flight with a strong pace
that leads up to a saxophone
fugue solo, Even better is "Let's
Get It On" (if you can forget the
title) in which the brass a^ain lays
it on thick in a well structured,
straight-ahead line. There is a fine
guitar solo by Bobby Ramirez
(not a note wasted) and then the
song climaxes with a harmonica
piece by laCroix who sings into
his harp. No artificial flavoring
here. Side one finished up with an
entente of soul and blues in "I've
Got News For You" with the
brass setting an outline for the
vocal and then going up and down
like a roller coaster on the blink.
Add another good song "Where
Would I Be" (also on side one)
and they almost have enough material for a solid alburn. Unfortunately there are slim pickings on
side two despite the presence of a
lovely, evocative vocal by Winter
("Dying to Live"). The slower,
gospel numbers, pretty lame to
begin with, are not helped any by
a six girl chorus. "Save The Planet" is simply a throwaway.
"Keep On Playing That Rock n'
Roll" couldn't possibly give anyone the incentive to do what the
title suggests.
WHITE TRASH is a group with
great potential (their brass section
is the most spirited I've heard in a
long while) and as soon as they
cut down their activities to what
they do best and find their niche
they will explode on the scene. As
for now, they give us some bangs
but also a couple of whimpers.
