I drift from o n e learning time t o the next; I get
beaten up once but the next time I overcome my
opponents because I learned how t o kick and punch
from the last time. The thing that I have over most
people is that I know that life is learning, and little
more than that. The more I learn, the more I live.
That's why I like t o be active, although R&R ( rest
and recreation) is learning, too. 1 don't like inactivity that's forced o n m e ; now that's preventing me
from learning as much as I wanted to. S o m e b o d y
else is imposing his idea of learning on me. I don't
like that.
State University of New York at Albany
Learning is to realize the futility of it all, the big
deception that is life. Learning, true learning,
learning that reaches the soul and scars its essence—
this learning can n e v e r be taught in a school, only
by a n d in oneself, b y and in o n e ' s self-realization.
School learning is a diversion, designed t o give
people c o n f i d e n c e t h a t life is really w o r t h s o m e thing, t h a t life is real. Schooling produces the false
impression that life can b e formed. I t isn't formed—
it isn't even t h e r e ! ! ! S c h o o l i n g c a n only d e l u d e us
into t h i n k i n g t h a t life is w o r t h s o m e t h i n g , b u t this is
but a noble, albeit o f t e n t i m e s successful, m e t h o d of
keeping m a n sane, or w h a t s c h o o l i n g calls " s a n e " ,
Maybe that's what life is--learning. Nobody teaching-just learning. N o b o d y tells y o u h o w t o live.
You're just adrift, left t o fend for yourself. Others
push you around, but then you either get used t o it
or y o u learn t o push back. See? That word "learn"
c o m e s up. Probably, life is meant t o be insecure so
that people can learn. Nobody learns anything
worthwhile except when he's forced to learn it; and
then he has t o use that learning t o survive. People
are just learning animals who bump into each other,
each bump causing new learning. Life is one learning
situation after another. A person can never really
enjoy life because learning can be and often is
painful; but the more a person learns, the fuller his
the ASP ^ ^ ^ S
and the loneliness grows. It grows because I k n o w
that the only way I'll realize w h o , why, and what I
am is t o reach my God. And--oh!-I reach Him so
few times....
I don't k n o w where I am. I don't k n o w w h y I am.
I don't k n o w who I am. I t h o u g h t that I could get
over these feelings, but I guess that they'll stay to
haunt me until I die. A n d I s o much want n o t t o
die! I want t o live s o much, but I don't k n o w how.
Who'll teach me? How will I know?

In an assembly marred hy several disturbances,

C o u n t y District A t t o r n e y , is presently campaigning
for r.'-eleclion against t h e Democratic challenger,

Speaking lo an attentive, conservatively dressed
audience of thirty, Proskin appealed for s t u d e n t
support in his campaign, lie spoke at s o m e length
about t h e Albany C o u n t y Democratic machine,
which has traditionally dominated area politics, lie
reiterated what he considers to have been his maior
a c c o m p l i s h m e n t since becoming District A t t o r n e y
in 1U6H: " T h e principal thing I've done is t .ing
this office c o m p l e t e l y outside the realm of politics."
Proskin d e p l o r e d the campaign tactics of his opponent, w h o m he referred to as an organization
c a n d i d a t e . He acknowledged that during the television d e b a t e on S u n d a y , he "wanted to bust him
(Kccgau) right in toe kisser." He dismissed the
possibility that Keegan received the nomination on
merit. At one p o i n t , he was asked about corruption

To the Editor:
I have just learned that the Social Studies department of this university is planning to drop the
Social Studies Education Major program as of next
semester. This will affect any freshman or sophomore currently enrolled in this program and still
under academic advisement in the University College. I am urging any Social Studies Ed. major to go
find out what is happening and why. Dr. Harry Price
is the chairman of the Social Studies Department
and may have some answers. If you're nut in this
program, find out anyway. You may be the next
one screwed.

Cultural Genocide is still being practiced against
Soviet Jews. The Fad is over but the problem
remains. Jews are being persecuted every day. This
past Rosh Hashana (The Jewish new year) for the
first time the Soviet police were actively "encouraging" Jews not to go near the Moscow Shu I
(temple). They were turning many hundreds away
from the shut. As we approach the holiday of
Simchat To rah the holiday when Soviet jews go to
shul in very large numbers approaches we wonder
what Soviet police will do this timeVBy the time
this letter is printed this event will have come and
gone. We wonder what is being done r nr them and
for other oppressed peoples. For the Jew this past
two weeks are days of repentance and of asking
questions of oneself, man and society. We wonder
again who will speak for Soviet Jewry now that the
Fad is over?We will ask these questions many times
but this is a most important time to ask them. We
ask you out there and ourselves what have we done
for them today?

Regarding last, week's loiter about the inadequacies of Colonial Quad's vacant lot, I have also
experienced the hazards of parking legally. Towing
and ticket charges seem a small inconvenience in
comparison to the expenses already incurred to
replace a stolen side view mirror, and to hang out
and repaint $250 wortli of dents due to the
overcrowded, unpaved, undelineated, poorly lit and
scant policing of this lot.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about Richard Nixon's speech
last night is what he didn't say. And he didn't say plenty, I lis
statements were so predictable that we guessed his next sentence
as we listened, a particularly Nixonian game of ours.
Apart from the "just folks'' fan mail (cleverly culled from
around the nation), the major part of the speech dealt with new
names for the "price-stabilization" committees already in

exemption of "raw agricultural products" from the freeze. This,
of course, screws royally the average consumer and organizations

specific questions are to be answered today at noon when Dick's
whipping-boy, JohnConnally, meets the press. These include such
crucial matters as pay increases (negotiated before the freeze)
which will go into effect during the next four months.
As a sop to the big labor leaders, who have complained about
the lack of restraints on profits and dividends, Richard appointed
a Committee on Interest and Dividends under Arthur Bums
(Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board) which will have the
power (or non-power) to urge voluntary restraint on corporate
America. He made the point that "where this happens (excess
profits), the Price Commission's policy will be thai business
should pass along a fair share of its cost savings to the consiuni'i
by culling prices." This applies lo "windfall" profits only,
though, because (as we all know) profits generally are good lot

Upsetting the Monopoly
To the Editor:
Regarding your recent editorial concerning the
"Student Buyer's Guide":
Competition is the life-blood of any business.
Those who cannot cut the mustard should get out.
Until recently, competition on the Albany campus
was a myth: The ASP was the only outlet here that
businesses could advertise in and ASP editor Tom
Clingan is determined to keep it that way.
Now the "Student Buyer's Guide" is threatening
to upset Tom's monopoly and Tom is getting
worried. Now advertisers have a choice of newspaper outlets at Slate and perhaps some healthy
competition might do the ASP some good. But, as
they say, Tom, "If you can't take the heat, get out
of the kitchen." Rather than harrass the Student
Buyer's Guide as Mr. Clingan suggested (thus
demonstrating his total lack of responsibility) students here should commend the SBG and wish it
well. As for the ASP (whose funds are, unfortunately, guaranteed by the student tax) and its
editor, they deserve neither the respect nor support
of the student body in their attempt to "force" the
Student Buyer's Guide off campus.
Mitchell Frost
Trash the ASP?
To the Editor;
Joke of the year: An ASP editorial counseling the
student body to deposit Student Buyer's Guide in
the trash. I should have thought the ASP to be the
most likely candidate for that treatment.
Unfortunately, we are not talking about joking matters. For the ASP to cleverly champion goon-squad
tactics ("ripoff") lo destroy competition press, is
Minply disgust iug However, for the ASP to advocate
the legal banning by the student government of a
certain newspaper on this campus or anywhere, is a
serious threat to every citizen's Constitutional right
to read what he pleases without interference from
constituted authority. The ASP screams about "King
Richard" and supposed repression, and yet the small
minds that scribble its editorials call for goon-squads
and legal banning of the opposition. The Left
always exposes its true nature when given the
John C. Bartlett
Brubacher Mall
A Suggestion
To the Editor:
To Mr. Frost and Mr. Bartlett,
All this "fan mail" calls for a response. It might
interest both Mitch Frost and John C. Bartlett to
know that the student newspaper hurt the least (as a
matter of fact, not hurt at all) by the Ripoff Guide
is the Albany Student Press.
As such we have
nothing to gain financially by its trashing. Mitchell
Frost and John C. Bartlett, it would appear, must
always see the world in a financial light.
Doesn't it interest anyone that the man who put
himself forward as Advertising Manager of most of
the area college papers (and raised their rates
generally by as much as 10%) then preceded to
screw them by sending their advertisers a letter
saying, in effect, "Advertise in my Buyer's Guide
and save a fortune"?
The first amendment lo the Constitution prohibits
the student government here from taking action,
which is re-assuring to me as a newspaperman. Ye'
the damage being done by the ripoff guide is 1 JO
great to pass unnoticed. Some have remarked thai
student newspapers are going through the same
phase that small businessmen went through after
World War Two, only we can make our case more
publicly because- we are a communications medium.
This may well be true, which poses the question,
"Which would you rather have, a successful student
newspaper (all this paper takes money, be it tax
money or advertising), or a 100% advertising Student Buyer's Guide." The choice, as they say, is
yours. Are you going to let the Cavanaughs of this
world make it for you, while the Frosts and the
Bartlelts stand idly by?
Tom Clingan
The concluding advice of your editorial of
October fi seems rather senseless.
Since a student newspaper is funded in large part
by student taxation, we assume that the primary
purpose of the ASP is to provide a service to the
student body which subsidizes it. The allocation of
commercial advertising space in the ASP should be
viewed as an adjunct to this primary purpose
of service to the student. The generation of additional revenues from ad sales should be considered
only an incidental benefit. Since the ASP chooses to
enter the business arena by selling commercials ("to
make a buck"), it should be expected that competition would ensue,
This has happened with the introduction of a
private venture called "student buyer's guide". It
seems to me that because of its wider inter-school
circulation and broader advertiser base, this publication provides an informational service which no
single college newspaper can.
A more sensible way to "knock the competition"
is to recommend that student government establish
and levy a fee on any private publication for
distribution rights on campus.
To relegate "shg" "unopened into the nearest
trashcan", only contributes to our rampant paper
Nick Argyros
[Editor's note: Mr. Argyros' idea of a foe levied on
"private publications" who distribute on campus is
good, but vague and difficult to enforce. Perhaps a
better wording would be "private publications
containing more than fifty percent advertising by
area". It would remain difficult to collect and
enforce, in any case.)

To Vote or Not to Vote -That Was The Question
Wants to Vote
Fears Students May Fall Into Rut
Allen LeVine
Ray Vitiard
Don't Latch
On to Party
Allen LeVine, a senior, is 21 and
hails from North Belmont, N.Y.
Asked if he has registered tovote,
he replied, "Yes, I enrolled as a
Democrat - one of my parents is
also." Allen applied for an absentee ballot, and doesn't mind not
voting in Albany as " I ' m graduating this December. If I were a
freshman I'd want to (register in
Albany) but as it is I'm going to
be leaving in a few months.' The
Inquiring Photographer asked Allen if he felt 18-21 year-old voters
were going to exercise their right
to vote and effect changes on the
political scene. "That's a good
question. I don't know what
they'll do...I can'l predict what a
mixed bag of people like that is
going to d o . "
Ruth Herman
Hopes for A
Good Turn Out
SUNYA sludeni MarkKauffman
has enrolled as a Democrat. I lis
parents are Democrats also ;nul lie
feels Ilia; he will probably vole
along the same lines as they "hui
by coincidence " Mark didn't ap
ply lor an Absentee Baftol as " I ' l l
probably go home to vole. Now
thai IH-21 year-olds have ibe righl
to vole he hopes they Will turn
out on election day. " I hope we
gel enough to register and enough
to vole -ihen they (political f i l i a tions) will change.
Ray Villard, 2 1 , a Rochester
native is a senior at SUNYA. He
has registered to vote and has
applied for an absentee ballot.
Ray is an independent as he
"doesn't think it's a good idea to
latch onto a seems parly
philosophies are always changing,
Problems I saw with my parents
is that they always vole along
parly lines.,it's best In remain
independent." Kay hopes 1H-2I
year-olds will exercise their voting
righl and lie hopes "that il will
affect Ibe way political leaders,
tlu' president especially, will re
spond lo Ihe way younger generalion Teels about things. It's giving
more power to our generation. I
hope people aren't going In jusl sil
back and say ' I ' m not going to
participate because it's all rigged.'
Ed yce Menewilch, nineteen,
from Valley Stream is a sophomore here and has registered to
vote and joined the Democratic
Parly. Edyce was asked if she
would prefer to be enrolled in her
hometown or in Albany. " I t
doesn't make any difference, does
it? If it does I'd vote at home
...I'm interested in the politics
there and the schools--! think I
might end up teaching." Edyce
believes the newly enfranchised
voters will take advantage of their
right "...for the first two years.
Parents seem lo get apathetic, I
assume young voters will fall into
the same rut. I hope not."
Sharon Douglas, 22, is an
enrolled Democrat in Syracuse.
She doesn't know yel whether
she'll be voting along the same
lines us her parents. She feels,
quite definitely, thai students
should vote in their home towns.
Commenting on whether students
will exercise their righl to vote,
she says, "Some of them will, but
I don't think all of them will. Too
many think that there is too much
wrong." She "hopes" that students will he able lo effect political change.

Didn 't Know
The Deadline
Mark Miller. 21, says thai he
never knew when Ihe deadline was
for registering lo vote " N o one
ever told metlial there even was a
deadline" On the question of
voting in Album or his hometown, he responded thai "We're
iiisl Iransienls here
I if we have
Ihe vole we'll he able hi control
publics in this area. We don'I even
live here Bui since I'm paying
Didn't Register
Junior Ellen Wolslegel, 19, of
Kingston, N.Y, did not register to
vote "because I don't really think
that Ihe personal ballot means
anything... Voting now is like picking tile least of two evils. There's
really no choice and my personal
hallo! doesn't mean anything."
Although Ellen will nol be able to
vole, she feels her peers will exercise their privilege to vote and
that " i l probably w i l l " have an
Some Have
Been Hassled
Students Should Vote at Home
In Hometown
Ruth Herman, 19, of South New
Berlin has registered to vote and
" I joined the Liberal party. I tried
to change because I wanted to
vote in the primary... and I'm
probably the only liberal in the
county." Ruth wants to vote in
her home town and believes of
18-21 year-old voters that " i f they

Ihe same old bull -I hope there
will be a change."
Michael Anderson
Michael Anderson, 19, is from
Albany and has registered as a
Republican because he doesn't
want to see the school board go
Democratic. He points out I hat
the authorities have discouraged
some sludenLs from registering: " I
know one person who has fulfilled
the residency requirement and
went lo enroll, and they gave her
a really big runaround. They gave
some really insignificant reason to
keep her from registering." Anderson doesn't think many young
people will register because of all
Ihe hassles involved and doesn't
think thai students will have
much effect in politics He feels
that students should definitely be
able lo vole in Albany: "The
whole concept of [he campus is a
roniinunily. They're here for the
mosl vital pail of the year They
gel involved in community politics and I dun'I see why they
shouldn't he allowed lo vole "
K l i n ghoffer, nineteen
year-old sophomore from New
York City, has registered to vote
and she has "enrolled in the
Democratic Party." She was asked
if she fell she will vote along the
same lines as her parents. " I don't
feel any obligation to vote the
way they do, although I feel very
often I w i l l . " Ilene has applied for
an absentee ballot and she is "still
thinking about whether I'd want
to register to vote in Albany
Sometimes J feel that I'd like to
(register here) but then I do spend
a lot of time at home. Being on
this campus I 'm separated from
the City of Albany. Maybe if the
campus had stronger ties with the
City of Albany I'd feel different
l y . " Ilene was asked if she thought
the newly registered youth would
vote and make a difference in Ihe
political scene. " I ' m nut Louis
Harris, but I hope they vote and
exercise that right."

'Destroy Corning'
Holly Fitter wishes she could
vote in Albany, because, "Then
we could really destroy Corning.
That would he great." Holly, 20,
and from Brooklyn has registered
as a Democrat so that she can vole
in the primaries. She hopes thai
only college students will get out
and vote: " I don't care about the
kills wllo are rotten conservatives.
They can go jump in a lake as fur
as I'm concerned."

William Doscher
will or nol is another question."
Didn't Get
Around to It
John Rodriguez says that he just
didn't get around to registering.
He feels that students should be
able to vote in Albany because
"It's so much more convenient."
He is pessimistic on the question
of participation: " I just don't
think they'll get out and vole,"
and he feels that young people
will have no effect in politics.

Joseph l.'urry, u freshman from
Brooklyn bus registered lo vote
find is enrolled in the Democratic
Party. His parents are also Democrats but he .says " I ' l l vole the
way I feel. For the bosl candidate,
not just the Democrat or Ihe man
my parents vote for." Joseph did
not apply for an Absentee Ballot
us he will "probably |jo home and
vote instead." Asked if hi' fell he
should vole here in Albany or in
his hometown, Joseph repl •d " I

Eileen Goodrich also cited examples of sludenLs being discouraged from registering, and says
that this is one reason why she
hasn't registered herself. " M y exroommate got into a hassle when
she registered to vote because
they said she had to vote in her
home town. She's been living here
for at least 10 months and she's
really interested in things going on
here." Eileen argues that students
should be able to vote in Albany:
" I ' m just not into voting at home.
I d o n ' t know and don't care abou l
who's running." Commenting on
whether young people will vote,
she says thai, " I think the older
people areworried about us forming a giant coalition and voting
against everybody - it's ridiculous,
because you can't even get everybody lo go to a concert together lei alone vote logether." She feels
that students could make a difference in publics, but doesn't feel
that it is likely lo. Eileen is IH,
and is from a town near Buffalo
..."Not Attica", she adds.

On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week two ASP reporters and
two photographers went forth to discover if the average "podium
person" here at State had registered to vote as well as to find out
a few other facts about the latest group to be enfranchised*

Tie You Down
Roger Rolundo, IH, and from

in any particular parly because he
didn't want lo be "tied d o w n . "
On whether students should vote
in Albany he comments thai it
make initcli difference where you are you should

ilhcr Albany or
your hometown." He claims Hint
Ihe view thai, " M y one vole isn't
going lo make any difference" lias

feels (hat students can effect political change, "Only if they all get
together, but 1 don't think they
A gradual)' stud en I here, .Mm
Kemna, has some very definite
views on registering. He says thai
he hasn't registered, "Because it's
all a waste of time. Ever since the
'6H elections • ever since I saw
what happened then - I 've realized
it's nothing but a waste of time."
He claims that, "You're not going
to be able to change anything. It's
too controlled by machine people,
and the Republicans and Democrats are equally bad. You'd have
lo assassinate them all." Kemna
feels that, " Y o u have a toy in
voting at I H , " and he sums it all
up quite succinctly by saying, " I
really don't care about anything
" I had intended lo register Saturday, but got bung up here in
Albany, I was going down lo lite
Bronx to do i l . " This was Ihe
reason given by Michael Smith,
21, for not registering. He should
be able to vole in Albany because
"1 live off-campus" and he thinks
thai some young people will vote,
but, he says, " F r o m what I understand, registration hasn't been up
to expectations." Students will be
able to effect political change
only " i f all of them get out there
and vote."

New Sounds Close Saratoga Season
by Steve Hirsch
The City of Albany, as all but the most innocent of freshmen
must know by now, has never been overly fond of its student
population. This is why I must say I was pleasantly surprised to
see that the Albany Symphony's first regular concert of the year
is subtitled "A Salute to Students." The program, including
Brahms Academic Festival Overture (which uses the famous
student song "Gaudeamus Igater" in its finale), the third
symphony of Robert Starer, of whom I blush to say I know less
than nothing, "Pithoprakta," by Yannis Xenakis, a work composed in 19S4 that explores the possibilities of similating
electronic sounds with conventional instruments, and Mendelssohn's ever popular "Italian Symphony" will be given next
Saturday at the Palace Theatre, that great monument of faded
artificial grandeur.
Do I hear the mocking voices of students from Buffalo,
Rochester and New York City? The Albany Symphony? Am I
No sir. The Albany Symphony may not, like the N.Y.
Philharmonic, make the front cover of Newsweek, but for a city
the size of Albany it is an ensemble to be reckoned with. The
Albany Symphony has come a long way in recent years, and has
handled such difficult works as Stravinsky's "Petrouchka" and
Hindemith's "Concert Music for Strings, Brass and Percussion"
with expertise. Julius Hegyi is no Pierre Boulez, of course, but his
interpretations are often quite respectable. I'm looking forward
with anticipation lo the symphony's performance of Bartok's
"Concerto for Orchestra." I really believe the ASO is up to it. For a
dollar fifty for a student ticket, next Saturday's performance is
quite a bargain.
SECOND ENDINGS: WMHT-FM is coming in April! Full time
classical music! Hosanna in Excelsis!
The N.Y. Philharmonic did make the cover of this week's
Newsweek. It's a good article on Boulez.
A good concert Oct. 13 at Troy Music Hall! Ives 1st Symphony
(not too bad, but tame for Ives) and Mozart's 27th Piano
Concerto with Rudolf Sevai.

Miles Davis was forced to cancel
his scheduled appearance at the

Sunday night, due to the illness of
his pianist's wife. That, plus the
cold and the rain of the evening,

though, one monster of an electric

"Jesus Christ, Superstar" at the
Palace Theatre.
The Palace Theatre is a real
old-time popcorn movie house,
with its elaborate interior architecture, muted yellow lighting,
and the unmistakable aura of former grandeur.
With the late show starling at
10:00, the place was quite nearly
deserted at 9:30. And, it remained
relatively empty. I heard that the
early show "packed them in"
much better. However, a Monday
night with a football game on

great deterrent to a lot of SUNY

"Superstar" (although we used
the music in our high school Sing

compare the live show to the

The interpretation here seemed
to portray Jesus as a man disillusioned with his life, yet egotripping on his own popularity,
possibly at times almost scornful
of his followers. Does this correspond with the Bible story? Is this
entire show "offensive" in some
way to the devoutly religious? I
am sure that Life or Newsweek
magazine must have at one time
called "Jesus Christ, Superstar"
something like "a reverant rock
opera" or "a new slant on an old
story." I'd have to agree. It is
inconceivable that Jesus Christ
ever held a microphone or anyone
ever said, "Hey J.C., you're all
right by me," but that only enhances and updates the beauty of
the story, and the fantastic Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice
