SUNYA of the Furore
by Diana Cyanovich
1974 would have been a very good yea*. Originally it meant an Olympic sized swimming pool, a
hockey and pleasure skating rink, new graduate
dorms, married student housing, an extension to
both the east and west ends of the podium, and a
number of other grand constructions.
The large master plan, at the east entrance of the
administration building, impresses those who happen to glance its way as they hurry by. Upon closer
examination it becomes obvious which buildings are
not completed and may not be for a number of
The first thing that catches ones eye, upon glancing
across the plan before us, is the proposed east and
west extensions to the podium. The plans for the
west podium extension were all completed a year
ago. This area would have included, amongst other
things, enough room for the humanities and social
science departments to expand and breathe more
freely. An extension of the library and campus
bookstore und eating facilities would also have been
included. This enlargement of the library would
cater primarily Lo graduate studies. Two or three
lecture rooms were proposed. Although the university is not being pressed Tor lecture center space, it
may be in the future.
Across the podium on the east end another
extension was planned. An expansion of the space
for chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics and
others would then have been possible. Highly
specialized laboratories for these fields is still one of
the basic dreams of the physical science departments.
Off the southeast end of the podium a field house
may someday be placed. This building would serve
many interest groups. The three main features
include an olympic sized swimming pool, a combination hockey and pleasure skating rink and a large
indoor arena. The arena could be used for track,
basketball, indoor football, as well as for speaking
engagements and musical programs. Ten thousand
spectators could have been accomodated.
Graduate dorms for the uptown campus were also
included in the plan. This proposal was made wiLli
the thought in mind of a large expanding graduate
student population.
Between these dormitories and the undergraduate
uuiids is i. parking and recreational structure. Park
ing for students would be on two levels. One would
be one half a flight above ground level and the other
one half a flight below. On top of these structures
would be tennis courts and an open lawn for general
use and informal Across Puller Road, on a large
tract of land owned by the University, was a
planned construction site for students. Close to liO'll
apartments for undergraduate and graduate students
was proposed. Since many students marry before
they finish their college studies, the University feels

liy now most students are prooably wondering
why all these proposed buildings will not be
anything more than wishful thinking for a number
of years. The answer is simply a lack of funding to
go through with the plans and u reorientation of
academic objectives. As the University stands pre
gently, phases one and two are completed, There is
even the added extra of a health center Before any
more construction could occur the stale's austerity
budget stopped all work.
The conditions of the present ar not necessarily
permanent. Walter Tut dale of Campus Planning
explains the situation as possibly a "temporary
moratorium which might last for a decade, more or
less." Once the University Is given the go-ahead
through state funding some of these lost buildings
may come out of hiding

The campus model located in the Administration Building lobby contains many buildings which were
never built, and which probably will not be built here for some years. They include new graduate dorms,
a conference center, planetarium, and a field house.
According to Walter Tisdale of Campus Planning, the halt in SUNYA construction may not be
permanent. If the state fiscal crisis cases somewhat, it is conceivable that funds could be alloted for
building some of the structures recently slashed.

Paint Job to Impress Communit
It's All Greek to Meit
by Glenn von Nortitz
b y Claude Weinberg
Last Friday at t h e Interfraternity Council S m o k e r , this fall's
fraternity rush officially began. For s o m e , these n e x t few weeks
n i g h t b e t h e best w e e k s o f their college years highlighted b y their
icceptance into a F R A T E R N I T Y . For others it is t h e realization
h a t Greek is n o t for them. However, m o s t p e o p l e either d o n ' t
m o w , d o n ' t care, or are totally biased against fraternities.
Rushing is divided into t w o sections, informal and formal, each
•sting about t w o weeks. Informal rush consists o f a series o f events
pou m a y have seen advertised, such as kegs with sororities, dinners,
vine a n d cheese parties, a n d drinking in t h e frat section. T h e
>urpose is t o have interested males m e e t the fraternities and their
»ay o f life. T h e first bid session is then h e l d , at w h i c h formal
n o t a t i o n s are given t o basically a n y o n e s h o w i n g interest in Bier
fraternity. Then, formal rush begins, and in t h e n e x t t w o w e e k s the
ushees start their personal evaluations and d e c i d e w h i c h fraternities
h e y like best. On October 2 2 , this year, t h e final bid session will b e
leld and t h e individual fraternities will decide t o w h o m they w a n t t o
pve bids. That night t h e rushees can pick u p their bids and decide
whether or not t o accept the bids.
J o h n B u c k o H , Director of t h e
Physical Plant here a t S U N Y A ,
yesterday answered w m e recurring questions about the painting
presently being d o n e inside academic buildings and the reside n c e quadrangles.
• According t o Buckoff, all o f
the Academic Podium buildings
are slated for a c o m p l e t e repainting this year. Work inside the
Social Science building has already been c o m p l e t e d , and t h e
Humanities building was originally scheduled t o b e painted
But, according t o both Bucko f f a n d Campus Center director
Gary Jones, a change in schedule
has been made. I t h a s been
decided t o paint t h e Campus
Center before Humanities in an
effort t o give a "better impress i o n " o n C o m m u n i t y University
D a y , which is scheduled for October 23rd. Hundreds o f visitors
from t h e surrounding c o m m u nity are expected here then, and
it has been the desire o f t h e
administration to make the campus l o o k "as good as possible."
Receiving t o p priority, according t o Jones, are t h e "more
public areas" which are e x p e c t e d
t o b e seen most b y the visitors.
Funding Revealed
T h e funds for doing the latest
painting, are coming o u t o f the
regular maintenance a n d repairs
budget o f t h e University.
A fraternity's function is primarily social and although only about
10% o f all university m e n belong t o fraternities, they are among the
most active participants of campus events such as H o m e c o m i n g ,
Holiday Sing, Telethon, and intramural sports. Fraternities also play
a large part in c o m m u n i t y affairs, sponsoring b l o o d drives, helping
charities, and fasting for Biafra, t o name a few. There is also a major
representation of Greeks in student politics. In short, the fraternity
is an organized group of guys pooling their talents and abilities in
order t o achieve a spirit o f pride and brotherhood.
Originally, fraternities were started because o f t h e lack o f special
interest groups o n campus. Today, with their proliferation, fraternities, e x c e p t for a few, are o n the decline. One of the reasons is that
first semester freshmen are not allowed to rush; many feel that their
enthusiasm dies if they have t o wait for t h e n e x t semester. This fall
there was a proposal t o annul the rule. It is n o w in the hands o f the
Student Affairs Committee and a decision should b e reached very
Last semester, a story on fraternities was written b y an independent and was obviously biased against Greek life. I, being in a
fraternity, have written this story biased toward fraternities.
However, like the weather,, people complain about the social life at
Albany but no o n e does anything about it. Come around t o t h e rush
functions; there are n o c o m m i t m e n t s at all. You'll have a g o o d time
and, w h o knows, m a y b e you'll like it!

Not Real Peace:
But the Absence of War
by MkhacJ Putzd
Associated Pics Writer
H i e focal point o f d i e Indochina w a r has m o v e d again i n t o a
region where t h e names are obscure, t h e objectives unclear and
t h e o u t c o m e uncertain.
F o r more than a m o n t h North
Vietnamese regulars have been
striking a t t o w n s a n d military
o u t p o s t s s o u t h o f D a Nang, an
area that many military analysts
believed w a s overdue for its
share o f t h e n a t i o n w i d e North
Vietnamese offensive.
Q u e S o n a n d Fire Base Ross
were overrun and retaken. T i e n
Phuoc fell. T h e n determined assaults were m a d e against M o D u e
and Ba T o .
A couple o f hundred militiam e n , with heroic help from an
American adviser, held o u t in
Mo Due though outnumbered 1 0
t o f l . The t o w n o f Ba T o fell, but
the nearby c a m p is holding, surrounded and under siege.
Harrassing attacks have been
building against D u e Pho.
All t h e towns are district capitals in t h e three southern provinces o f military region 1 •
Quang Nam, Quang Tin and
Quang Ngai. T h e Viet Cong
spent years booby-trapping and
and infantrymen w h o tried to
clear o u t elusive guerrilla forces
from the jungled mountains in
the west and the rice-rich coastal
plain in t h e east.

Hanoi's original s c h e m e for t h e
offensive, according t o o n e analyst, was t o seize Quang Tri in
the north, K o n t u m in t h e central
highlands, and Binh Dinh o n the
central coast. T b e n they could
have closed on t h e provinces in

It also is possible that the
North Vietnamese, having suffered severe fosses in other areas,
prefer t o fight here now. They
can keep the available government forces thinly spread and
vulnerable at an acceptable cost.

Imagine a flock of sheep, foll o w e d by three camels, crossing
the busiest intersection of a large
U.S. city at 5 P-m., and you have
a little sense o f Cairo—one of the
noisiest and most crowded cities
I've ever seen.
Multiply by a thousand the
excavations for new buildings
that mark downtown San Francisco or Philadelphia, and you 11
have s o m e sense o f h o w Tel Aviv
and Jerusalem look today.
These images are but a hint of
the cultural gaps that separate
countries like Egypt and Syria
from Israel, and all three of
them from t h e United States.
They make nearly impossible
what is already a difficult task:
to Americans
the tenuous and shifting realities
of life in the Middle East.
Even n o w , many American
Jews take the slightest criticism
of Israel as a sure sign of antiSemitism, while many American
Arabs view any disapproval of
Arab policy as proof o f a Zionist
Quite apart from these obsta
cles to understanding, however,
I m handicapped by my o w n
feelings. Part of me—and an important part, too—is in Israel,
where some of my oldest and
best friends live.
I go back there again and
again, a t t r a c t e d and repelled,
loving it a n d hating it, at ease
there in certain ways I am never
[comfortable^ here, a n d equally
uncomfortable there in ways 1
[never experience here.
In the past few years, however,
i have also m a d e new friends in
|the A r a b world. I've come to

compress the reactions o f a
month's trip into a few words:
The whole area, it seems, is
moving to the right. The Arab
nations are shifting in that direction and the influence o f Islam is
growing among the Arab peoples. Israel, t o o , is shifting
towards the right as the viewpoints held by Israeli expansionists and hawks become more and
more acceptable to those in the
center of Israeli life.
I do not think any immediate
danger of full-scale war exists in
the area. N o Arab nation or
combination o f Arab nations is
capable of successfully conducting a war against Israel and
neither are the Palestinians. And,
at the moment, Israel has more
than enough Arabs to deal with,
for today Israel is in fact a
bi-national state—except that the
million Arabs w h o live within it
and the borders of t h e occupied
territories are and will remain
Israeli leaders recognize the implications this large Arab population holds for the future of a
Jewish state; others, unfortunately, do n o t . Abba Eban has
complained that when he raised
the question of Israel's future
demography if the state had
more than a million Arabs in it,
one of his fellow cabinet members jeered at h i m with " D e m o graphy, s h e m o g r a p h y . "
Arab leaders are still reluctant
to criticize publicly what they
believe to be incorrect policies
and actions of other Arabs, thus
maintaining a formidable barrier
to real peace.
Meanwhile, the voices of dis

The city of Albany is n o t
nestled at the b o t t o m of t h e
fountains, nor is it hiding in the
tunnels or lecture center seven.
It is o u t there in s o m e indiscernable fog, and the p r o b l e m of
every d o r m resident is t o get t o
it and reaffirm his belief t h a t
t h e r e is m o r e t o life than quadrangles a n d towers.
When t h e " I ' v e got t o get u u t

be is a r o u n d lots of green. If y o u
d o n ' t have t o o m u c h time and
y o u ' r e d e s p e r a t e for a park atm o s p h e r e , a quick ride on t h e
SUNY bus t o Draper Hall will
t a k e y o u a block away from
Washington Park. It is a small
replica of Central Park, and although night time safety is n o t
o n e of its key features, it is still
a place where trees are left alone
and not s y m m e t r i c a l l y aligned.
T h e r e are also s o m e beautiful
houses in and a r o u n d t h e park
that are worth jealously admiring.
If y o u have a car, or a friend
with o n e , take a ride s o u t h along
route 8 5 t o Thatcher Park. This
State Park is open all year and
has a beautiful overlook area o f
Albany and her surroundings.
During the warmer seasons, picnic areas and s w i m m i n g facilities
are available and there are scenic
trails for hiking. In t h e winter,
the park has a twelve mile area
set aside for s n o w m o b i l e s . ( D o e s
a n y o n e have o n e , here?). There
is a five t o seven mile area for
cross-country skiing a n d snow
shoeing and a towless ski slope
For those among us w h o believe there is more to e d u c a t i o n
than the classroom, there are
places in Albany which provide
more than pure entertainment.
The Albany Institute o f History
and Art, 1 2 5 Washington Avenue, will have a folk art exhibit
October 5 through 3 0 , entitled
with portraits, silver and china.
When y o u tire o f a t t e m p t i n g t o

yourself that there is an Albany
Public Library S y s t e m . T h e Harmanus Bleeker Branch a t 1 9

a film program Tuesday afternoons. There is also a discussion
of great books o n the third
Wednesday of every m o n t h .

prove interesting.
Starting in January the legislature is in session; then y o u can
get y o u r education and entertainment in o n e package b y
watching your favorite State

Environmental Bond Issue on Nov. Ballot
Vote to Clear

Your air, water, and land are at stake this November 7.
The environmental bond issue, SI.15 billion in funds for
environmental projects, is on the ballot.
The bond issue must be passed. The Pure Waters bond
issue of 1965 is running dry. More money is needed for
projects that will be increasingly expensive if delayed any

Frost Sees the Light at the End of the Tunnel
by Mitchell Frost
President Nixon's "Vietnamization" program has so seriously
limited his options that once his
re-elction is secured he will have
no choice but to cease the
bombing and withdraw the remaining troops from Southeast
In a rather comical turn of
events it was the President's very
own Vietnamization program
which forced him, in the end, to
abandom our commitment to
South Vietnam. Vietnamization
is founded on the assumption
that the United States can safely
withdraw its troops from the
conflict while the ARVN (the
South Vietnamese army) takes
over more and more of the
combat role resulting eventually
in a totally "Vietnamized" war.
However, by gradually withdrawing U.S. support on the
ground, the President has been
forced to protect the allied effort from the air
Pentagon estimates vary
as to how long air coverage will
be needed in the war but it is
generally admitted that such
support will be vital for at least
two years. But the President
cannot wail for two years; he is
tired of the war and wanU to
throw in the towel now. This the
President has made "perfectly
clear." So the case will go to
Hanoi. The Communists can
press cither for what they need
or for what they want. If they
are satisfied with the mere necessities required for their takeover
then they will simply return the
captured American P.O.W.s and
wave goodbye as the last of the
American ground and air forces
leave. If they want more than
just that-if they demand, say,
that the. U.S. pull out first and
topple the Thieu government before our prisoners are returned
to us then well come to the final
No Options
Gradual withdrawal was an obviously absurd policy to pursue.
To pull out 95% of our troops,
substantially undermining our
bargaining position and then,
from this weakened position to
get tough with the enemy seems
entirely illogical. But recent
events have made our continued
presence in Vietnam not only
impractical militarily but unjustified morally now as well. As
Mr. James Burnham, a one-time
Trotskyite, pointed out nearly
four months ago, the entire character of the war has changed.
'"Hie United States intervened in
South Vietnam with the objective of preventing its takeover
by organized Communist power
based locally in Hanoi and supported by Moscow and Peking.
The U.S. opposed the takeover
(a) because it was judged to
endanger major U.S. interests
and, ultimately, global peace and
stability; (b) because the U.S. is
against the forcible imposition
of a regime on a people or
nation counter to their own will,
(c) because in the case of IndoChina the U.S. had specific
treaty commitments as well as
implicit obligations from its role
as victor in the war against
Japan. These considerations,
which motivated and justified
the g e o p ol i t i c a I o bjective,
seemed and seem to me convincing.
"Now, however, the President,
as commander in chief and chief
executive, has abandoned the
objective. Moreover, by his [enthusiastic cooperation with
Russia and China] he has abandoned the political and moral
considerations thai justified the
objective. To exchange fulsome
toasts with Chou and Brezhnev
at the same time that you are
dropping square miles of bombs
on junior camp followers of
Chou and Brezhnev is a political
contradiction and a moral offense.
"When fighting no longer has
political meaning, it becomes
butchery. Commenting on President Roosevelt's failure to bring
the war with Japan to a close
following the battle of Leyte
Gulf, General J.F.C. Fuller
writes: 'What the scalpel is to
,the surgeon, war should be to
the statesman, and whatever the
causes of the war may be, should
the aim of the stateman be
purely destructive, then the activities of the soldier will become
those of the slaughterhouse...To
be a sane political instrument,
war demands a sane political
end, and to be attainable that
end must be strategically possible.'
"In the present case it is not
necessary to discuss whether the
end is or was...strategically possible. Since the e\u\ to which the
military action was the means
has been renounced, it is now
irrelevant. 'The game is losl in
Vietnam,' Servan-Schreiber sums
up. 'It's time to quit.'"
The President has, by now,
resigned himself to this. Stewart
Alsop, in his Newsweek column
(May Tl) writes: "For more
than a year now, the President
has been asking from the North
Vietnamese only a translucent
fig-loaf to cover a total American
withdrawal from Indochina. Me
has been asking for an agreed
exit that could be made to look,
if not exactly honorable, at least
not downright indt'centT It appears the war will be over shortly regardless of who wins in
November. The American surrender in Indochina was drawn
up four years ago and its too late

To the Editor:
I was amused by Mitchell
Frost's analysis of fanatics and
terrorists ( September 8, 1972),
especially by his suggestion that
Israel invade Syria and Lebanon.
Mr. Frost's complaint appears
to be that terrorists are not
governments. Governments can
destroy human life in wholesale
lots and escape punishment.
Governments can decide who is
dangerous (or who might be)
and take immediate action;
people cannot.
Doesn't Mr. Frost realize that
terrorism is simply "individual
initiative" applied to war (which
"every civilized society" engages
in sooner or later)? How can a
conservative hold briefs for the
actions of the collectivists in
government and condemn the
highest expression of individualism—the right to kill one's enemies?
One cannot have it both ways.
If Mr. Frost wishes to condemn
terrorism, he cannot endorse it.
If a sniper who is a law unto
himself is anathema, so is the
government, so is the society
which uses B-52's to destroy its
enemies or the enemies of its
If one condones war, one must
not curse terrorism. The terrorist
lacks the muscle of a civilized
society but his morality is no
worse nor even any different.
When Mr. Frost is ready to
execrate the President of the
United States and any other
leader who engages in massive
acts of terrorism, I will be willing to listen to denunciations of
less powerful killers.

ASP "Faggotales" Unfair
to Gays on Campus
To The Editor:
We, as members of the gay
community on campus, wish to
Lake this opportunity to sLate
our objection to the irresponsibility demonstrated by the
Albany Student Press in presenting the article "Faggotales"
in the Friday issue, dated
September 22, 1972.
The ASP, as the official student newspaper, has shown extraordinary carelessness in not
even printing a byline in an
article of comment. This newspaper has a certain responsibility
to the University community,
including its gay members. If is
painfully evident that, without a
byline, the typical reader will
associate the article with the
opinions of the university gay
community. We demand that the
ASP never again present a gay
article of comment to the University without a byline.
bandies about the pejorative
label "faggot." The ASP would
not present articles about other
minority groups on campus
using the common and highly
offensive put-downs associated
with Blacks, Jews, Puerto
Ricans, Women, etc... Furthermore, the ASP would not treat
any of these communities on
campus with the apparent lack
of concern with which it treats
the interests of the gay community. As Student Tax payers,
we object most strenuously to the
offhand treatment we have received.
In the future, we expect t h e
Albany Student Press to exercise its
journalistic responsibility with
more care, and we will take

extenuating circumstances, all letters must be signed.
There have been several projects in Albany aiming at the
reform of prisons and parts of
the judicial process (which are
systematically discriminatory,
therefore unjust,). One of the
most recent, a half-way house,
is prospectively a fantastic program. Known as the Garnet
House, located on First St. in
Albany, it will serve as a home
and growing center for people
whose societal assigned roles and
lifestyles have led them to be
victims of our prisons (supposedly rehabilitation centers).
This could lead us into a terribly
rhetorical or completely esoteric
discussion of anything from the

An exciting and fortifying concept is that of people taking
control of their own lives rather
than being pawns in overwhelming, monstrous systems which
lack a human and personal element. The Garnet House is the
former-, planned, initiated, and
in the process of establishing
existence through the caring of
community people in Albany. A
case of people developing an
alternative to prisons, the looming archaic institutions, the unsuccessful attempts to resolve
problems by treating people as
though they are not.

From talking to various people
I've found that few of those
wearing P.O.W. - M.I.A. bracelets
realize they can write to the
families of the men whose names
they wear. To do ae simply
address the letters: "To the
family of" followed by the
man's rank and name and send it
to V.I.V.A.; they'll forward the
For those unaware of P.O.W. M.I.A bracelets, here's the information. By sending to V.I.V.A.
(Voices in Vital America) you
may request either a nickel
($2.50) or copper ($3.00) bracelet inscribed with the soldier's
name, rank, and date of loss. It
is to be worn until the Red Cross
is allowed to see the prisoner
and can assure his family of his
status and humane treatment.
The bracelet's importance is
varied. First, in writing to the
family the wearer may give them
some comfort in knowing some
one, a total stranger, is concerned for their son's or husband's welfare.
Secondly, by allowing others
to see the bracelet and ask about
it, people are constantly reminded of our prisoners of war
and men missing in action.
Hopefully, this is one way to
prevent their becoming a forgotten group of men.
Third, for one's own self • in
the middle of a seemingly awful
problem, just seeing the bracelet
is a reminder of how lucky we
all really are merely by being
alive and well.
Fourth, the bracelet transcends
political ideologies in these Hepublican- Democratic times. It is
an expression of concern for one
human being from another, out
side the realm of man-made poli
tical systems.

In reading the Sept. H ASF, I
noted that Jack Anderson's column will be appearing in the
Friday issues. Good!
In one of his columns he
wrote: "One of the least likely
men in America to shoot a presi
dent or seek to overthrow the
govenment is Paul Harvey, the
voice of the status quo. Yet the
Secret Service considers him a
menace to the President because
he 'once climbed over a security
fence to get a story."

Terrorism Illegal
To the Editor:
Mr. Lester Heverling, whose
reply to my article of last week
appears elsewhere on this page,
misses a very important point
when he argues that it is a
contradiction to condemn the
individual terrorist while granting to governments the right to
wage a defensive war. Civilized
society demands that the indivi-
dual who wants something from
another be prohibited from
using force to get it. He cannot
hold up his neighbor at gun
point to steal his money. If he
does, government is granted the
right to use this very same force,
through the police and the
courts, to punish him. Such
force in the hands of government has been legitimized by
tradition ,
On the international sphere a
similar rule applies. Countries,
under international law, are prohibited from using force (waging
war) for some nationalistic gain,
Wars of aggression are not al
lowed on an international scale.
As laws are necessary on a na
tional scale, so they are necessary on an international scale. As
they are enforced through the use
of legitimate force on the national scale, so defensive wars
are generally recognized as legitimate means of rebuking an aggressive war-making country.
This is precisely the nature of
our involvement in Vietnam, (f
Syria and Lebanon do not control the terrorists who attack
Israeli citizens within their own
countries, than Israel is certainly
within her rights to defend herself from such attacks through
the waging of a defensive war
against the countries responsible.
The contradiction does not hold.

" O Wow, m a n , y o u mean y o u reviewers get
all o f those records f o r free?"
" Y e a h , D'ya wanna be a reviewer? Here,
take a pile, give them a listen, write something, and come on back next week."
" H e y , man, that pile of junk was only the
worst, most terriblest shit I've ever heard.
What kind of a joke was t h a t ? "
The joke, of course, is that it wasn't a joke
at all.
Music might save your mortal soul, as Don
McLean claimed (though I doubt it) but to
get to that y o u have to work through the
recording industry, most of which is owned
either by Kinney Parking Lots (now renamed Warner Leisure Services, so that the
tail wouldn't appear to wag the dog) or the
G u l f & Western Oil Conglomerate. As you
might expect, the over-all corporate philosophy (to which there are a few happy
exceptions-but not nearly enough) of such
conglomerates has a great deal to do w i t h
"product"altogether too much of which turns out to
be " t h e worst, most terriblest shit..." T o
much of a reviewer's job winds up being
plowing through the shit looking for the
pearl or two to recommend...not that there
weren't pearls, just that there's a lot of the
other stuff. So herewith:
Without any doubt (though they had stiff
competition to overcome) the year's worst
bummers were the debut albums of two
Southern bands on the Capricorn l a b e l Captain Beyond and White Witch. Captain
Beyond features rejects from Deep Purple,
Johnny Winter's loudest and least musical
band, and the late, unbeloved Iron B u t t e r f l y ,
and the noise they produce bears more than
a passing resemblance to the racket of a
boiler factory. They have the dubious honor
of being the only band I know of to have
been physically uffed by a disgusted audience at the Wollman Skating Rink this
summer. White Witch, their companion in
p r o m o t i o n , is a Tampa-based commune
supposedly heavily into white magic and the
power of the mind. The LP had some of the
most inane Moog work on record; weak,
erratic, vocals; a couple of maniacal laughs
and shrieks; an atrocious rip-off of the
Hallelujiah chorus, and other goodies of that
ilk. Yes synthesizes; White Witch merely
steals...and not too well at that.
A few newcomers have received the hype
and publicity
i normally attendant to the
releases of superstars, even though their
material seems as tired and hackneyed as
that of more established performers. Bonnie
Koloc's Hold On TO \k; sounds like an LP
Carol King might have made, were she
feeling exceptionally tired and uninspired.
It's pleasant, yes, bui there just doesn't seem
to be any spirit there. Another instantly
over-familiar LP was the debut release of the
Eagles. Eagles might make it yet, but they
w o n ' t do it o f f this LP, I he single's good but
too much of the rest ol the album sounds
like stuff that McGinn would have had the
taste to leave o i l those country-oriented
Byrds LPs.
It's a good season for artistic la/iness; any
" n a m e " artist can release an LP with utter
confidence that, no matter how uninspired it
might be, his name will sell...and sell. Van
Morrison threw bits and pieces of stuff that
was probably originally written for Moondance or Astral Weeks together and came up
with ,S'(. Uomenic's Preview, the album isn't
that bad in itself, and if you don't have the
other two you might like it, but in terms of
what Van could and should do, it stands as
an enormous disappointment.
Airplane's Long John Silver is an even worse
disappointment. The 'Plane's right wing guitarist Jorma Kaukonen, bassist jack Casady,
and fiddler Papa John Creach pound, thunder, and soar in wondrous fashion-their
playing on this ablum is probably the ultimate in slam-bang heaviness, and the
drumming is decent (a welcome change lor

Thursday night from 6:00 to
8 : 3 0 as S U N Y A ' s International
Folk Dance Club conducts its
weekly session. The club, under
the direction of folk dance enthusiast and S U N Y A senior
Debbie Bayley, is a place where
both novices and experts in the
art of folk dance learn, teach,
practice and socialize.
Members of the club also perform in the Albany area; the
group's first engagement this
semester will be at Hudson
Festival of Nations on October
According to Debbie, folk
dancing got its start as a social
activity in the United States in
the 1930's, when V y t s Beliajus,
America and started folk d a n c e
groups all over the country.
There are several groups in Albany. The o n e here at the University draws about thirty participants a week, from Renssalear
and the c o m m u n i t y as well as
from the student body.
In addition to regular groups,
folk dance camps and workshops, where experts in the field
teach and introduce new dances,
meet periodically, Debbie notes
that while folk dancing exists all
over the United States, it has
practically disappeared from the
peasant societies where it originated, and where the radio has
now replaced folk expression
with rock and roll.
Debbie's background in folk
dance includes a year she spent
on Cyprus researching authentic
folk dances (quickly before they
disappear). She also has taught
folk dance at the Albany Jewish
Community Center, and she assistant teaches the folk dance
course that is in the University's
physical education curriculum.
Debbie teaches mainly dances
from Eastern Europe and the
Middle East. She says that
dances from Serbia, a part of
Yugoslavia, are very popular.
"Yugoslavia has a
style-nervous. People seem t o
like Serbian dancing. Everybody
likes to bounce around."
Right now the group is also
trying out a few English dances,
which they will perform at their
Hudson Valley engagement on
October 29.
T h e ground game was the order of the day Saturday as the
State football
dumped S t o n y Brook, 14-0.
Carvin Payne, Lonnie Davis,
and Marvin Perry were the key
m e n as the Great Danes racked
u p 2 7 1 rushing yards. In fact,
the running game was so effective that quarterback John Bertuzzi a t t e m p t e d only four passes, all of which were incomplete.
T h e Danes started to move
early in the game and took their
first possession of the football in
for a t o u c h d o w n after 11 plays.
Those critics w h o immediately
ruled out Albany's chances in
the game because o f the presence of freshmen in the starting
lineup should look at the performance of Marvin Perry. Perry
netted 8 2 yards in 11 carries and
also scored the first t o u c h d o w n .
Despite the strong ground
game, Albany was unable t o put
any more points on the board
until the fourth quarter. Five lost
fumbles wiped out the chances
for further scoring. Then, in the
tS C
final stanza, Lonnie Davis tallied
the clinching t o u c h d o w n for
T h e defensive unit w h i c h was
e x p e c t e d t o carry the Danes also
had a g o o d day despite s o m e
s l o p p y play. T h e return o f Jeff
O'Donnell t o the safety s p o t
after a brief quarterbacking stint
was highlighted b y t w o interc e p t i o n s for the safetyman.
Tim Myers s t o p p e d a S t o n y
Brook drive by grabbing a pass
in the e n d z o n e and bringing it
back t o the 3 7 . In addition,
Frank Villanova had a hand in
numerous tackles.
Coach B o b Ford was pleased
with the victory but was a bit
a n n o y e d with s o m e of the mishaps o f the contest. "Our offe n s e has made
progress," n o t e d the third year
pilot o f the Gridders, "but those
fumbles really hurt!" "Bertuzzi
did a g o o d j o b reading defenses,
though, and our offense was able
t o m o v e the ball consistently for
a change."
A real story
millions of people
refuse to believe
Ford also expressed disapp o i n t m e n t with s o m e o f the
defensive work. "There were a
few plays when w e had five or
six s h o t s on tackles and we
still had a hard time. I h o p e we

though they're obviously n o t as
well k n o w n , they're probably
just as g o o a r i f not better. Consisting of seven regular musicians, specifically band members
on lead guitar, organ-vocals,
drums, trombone, trumpet, bass
and rhythm guitars, this group
achieved one of the best sounds
heard from a non-"super-group"
in a long time. (The members are
Marc Hoffman, Gene McCormick, Joe English, Earl Ford,
Steve Marcone, Kent DeFelice,
and Jerry Sorn, respectively in
order of their instruments listed
above.) The band had with them
two musicians sitting in, Sam
Brook on sax, and Roger Madison on Conga drums. They
played several songs, all outstanding,
g ood
though, were "Talk is Cheap,"
and "Everybody Wants to be a
Rock and Roll Star."
A few minutes after Jam Factory went off, Harlot came back
on. There was general disappointment
audience, because they had enjoyed the other group so much.
They began with "Early in the
Morning," a song with a good
heavy heal. They did u few more
songs, none really fine, e x c e p t
for one in which the bass player
and drummer played alone. The
guitar was quite exceptional, and
the drummer, alter playing his
drums, played the guitar with his
drumsticks, his belly with his
hands, and his zipper, right up
next to the microphone (not
much talent needed for T H A T ! )
Nice stunt. Like when the bass
player sang into his guitar ear
lier. So?
All in all, the concert was
entirely enjoyable, with much of
the cause going to the girls
Harlot brought to dance, which
reminded me of a claque, but
most of it to the greut Bound and
lack of "gimmicks," of Jam
Kevin Quinn ran his pitching
record to three wins without a
defeat in the first contest. He
allowed only four hits, struck
out 4 and walked 4, while giving
up three runs, t w o of them
earned. Albany trailed LeMoyne,
.'( to 2, going into the top of the
sixth inning. In the sixth, State
9 Splits
put runners on first and second
with two men out, and sent up
Dan DcKorest to pinch hit. Dan
delivered the tieing run with a
single up the middle. Dave Bentley led off the seventh with his
second hit of the day, a double,
moved to third on T o m Lavigne's sacrifice bunt, and scored
the winner on Terry Kenny's
single of
game. In the second
LeMoyne scored all the runs
they needed in the first inning
two double steals.
La Roe, now o n e and o n e on the
pitching slab, with runners on
first and third, picked off the
runner at first and State got the
runner in a "run-down." While
this was all happening, the man
on third decided he would try to
score- and did, when Dan De
Forest's throw to the plate was
high and wide. LeMoyne scored
one lone run in the fifth on Bill
Starner's h o m e run.

Reda Leads Danes; Harriers Avenge Loss

On Saturday afternoon, the
Albany Soccer team opened
their season on an unhappy foot,
losing to Geneseo, 4-0. Albany's
booters played two different
games; a very poor first half due
to lack of aggressiveness, and an
excellent second half due to a
totally different aggressive, fighting style of play. You would not
have believed that the same team
played both halves, and continued to battle despite a three goal
deficit of which none should
ever have scored. One was accidentally scored via a defensive
crossup, and the other two
thanks to the referees.

played host to Cobleskill in their
first regular season game last
Saturday. Joe, normally a fullback, took over as goalie for the
JV team when Rod Fortran was
injured early in the first half.
Despite his fine effort, Albany
was crushed 1 0-2.
The main culprit was George
Sayward who scored 5 of the
opposition's goals. This star
freshman wii.. the spark of
Cobleskill and Albany could not
contain him.
The two Albany goals came
late in the second half when
Louise Gmaro stunned the opposition as his bullet shot zoomed
past the goalie. Later Ivan
Buschman maneuvered between
Cobleskill's defense to record
the final goal.
Although playing well individually, Albany lacked the cohesion necessary to display a
fine team effort. As they become more experienced a great
improvement should be noticed.
The opening minutes of the
first half showed Albany's booters afraid to go out and play
offense. They seemed to hold
back; fearing making a mistake
and allowing a Geneseo breakaway. Wings were playing as if
they were halfbacks, halfbacks
as fullbacks, and fullbacks even
closer to the goal. This resulted
in a spotty offense, and three
Geneseo goals, the first scoring
at 10:20 on a 10 footer by
center inside Ed Usinger. Usinger
scored again several minutes later
on a fluke goal that rolled in
just out of the reach of goalie
Henry Obwald who was partially
screened on the play. On the
opening kickoff following the
goal, Albany made a sudden rush
at Geneseo but failed to score
when Alvarez's shot hit the
At 32:05, the first questionable play occurred after a
corner kick by Geneseo. A shot
on goal was taken, and goalie
Henry Obwald reached back to
his right to make what appeared
to be a beautiful, one hand save,
only to have the referee signal
goal. He claimed that the ball
had crossed the line in the air,
and that Henry had merely batted it out afterwards. The ensuing argument was to no avail,
and the score was 3-0 as the half
ended. This reporter was there,
and cannot help but wonder
how the ref could have seen the
play, considering he was out of
position - to the right and rear of
the goal mouth, and screened by
several players. He probably did
not see it, but being a loyal
Geneseo resident, he saw
through the wall of players well
enough to call it a goal.
In the second half, Albany
came out like bats out of hell.
The Danes brought the game to
Geneseo, missing several scoring
opportunities by some nice defensive work by Geneseo's fullbacks. Then, at 3:35, a Geneseo
breakaway was broken up by a
sliding tackle by fullback Bruce
Michaels. To Albany's consternation, the ref called a penalty
shot. The sliding tackle is legal,
providing the tackier makes contact with the ball. The ref
claimed Bruce never touched it.
I wonder! The penalty shot was
made, as are most of this type,
and this put the game out of
The Danes continued to battle
on, outshoot'ing Geneseo 10-8 in
the second half, but to no avail.
Final score—Geneseo 4, Albany
Although the loss was a huge
disappointment, the players have
not lost faith in themselves. Captain Larry Herzog summed it up,
"Sure we're disappointed and it
was a tough loss. But we're not
going to get down on ourselves.
We're going to beat Hamilton
this Wednesday and we'll be
coming home at .500."

Albany State avenged last
year's defeat at the hands of
Montclair State by walloping
them and Coast Guard in a home
cross-country meet last Saturday. Tile score of the meet,
which was the fastest in Albany's history, shows Albany's
complete domination. Albany
had 24 points, Montclair State
65 points and Coast Guard had
60 points.
The Albany team which lacked
aggressiveness last week, came
right out from the start this
week. The first mile was run in
five minutes with only two
Montclair State runners being
able to stay with a pack of
Albany runners. At this point
Albany only had to hold position to win even though the
Montclair State runners were
As Ihey broke into the clear
with only .9 miles to go Albany's Vinnie Reda was sandwiched between the Montclair
runners. Behind them there was
a sea of yellow as Albany had
seven of the next eight runners.
The Montclair runner, Vim
O'Donough held on to first with
Reda second and a Montclair
runner third. Jim Schrader, Nick
Demarco, Bill Sorel and Carlo
Cherubino and John Koch took
the fourth through eighth spots.
Phil Doyle and Scott Aber-
crombie took tenth and eleventh. Except for Abercromble
who was expected to start (lowly and John Stanton who finished twenty all the Albany runners broke twenty eight minutes,
an outstanding performance this
early in the season.
Coach Muiuey was quite
pleased with the times by all the
runners. At the beginning of this
year's training Munsey slowed
down practice to prevent the
team from peaking too early in
the season as the SUNYAC
championship and the Albany
Invitational are late in the year.
Even with the runners about ten
days behind in training as compared to last year, their times are
three to four meets ahead of last
For Vinnie Reda this was the
second time he has led the Albany team. Though he has not
won a race, it took a super effort
by the Montclair runner to win.
It was the first time that three
runners had broken 27 minutes
in a race at Albany.
The most pleasant surprise was
Nick DcMarcpwho finished fifth.
Nick had an off meet last week
but came back with a strong
performance. He showed no sign
of the injuries that kept him out
last year.
Next Saturday Albany takes
on its toughest opponent, Army.
It is going to take a super effort
to beat Army.
Last years SUNYAC chumps, Albany State, continue on their winning wuys as they defeated the
University of Buffalo 5-4 last Saturday.

"We wish t o illustrate the lunacy of sponsoring a

All went smoothly at the Hellman until three
persons who had paid the five dollar admission price
got bored with the politics of the film and, spurred
on by the alcohol in their systems, decided t o
articulate their o w n political feelings with s h o u t s
and threats. Cool heads on the part of the d e m o n strators prevented any unpleasantness that might
have occurred. One of the three was asked what h e
thought of the message of the film, and replied, "I

another still drama. On o n e side were t w o " d e a d "
people and a sign over them which said "Dresden
