for Student Opinion

hy Michael Stewart
Ifow did you get to be President of the Student Association ?
I guess I started as any one would. As a freshman I was interested in
student government. I attended my first committee meeting and
read through a copy of the constitution. In October of that year I
became an at large commissioner. In November of my freshman year
I became vice-chairman of the old religious affairs commission which
has since bee,n abolished under the new S.A. constitution of the
spring of 1970.
Under the old constitution I became a council member and later
was elected vice-"ftwiident in my Sophomore year. I became
President at the end of my Junior year, winning the election over
Ken Stokem who is now chairman of the Central Council. I was
re-elected for my Senior year because people have been satisfied
with my performance.
Who turns out to vote in the Spring?
Nearly twenty percent of the students do vote. That's a high
percentage for a student election. Some school district referendums
have lower turnouts.
What is the scope of your activities as President and what might be
a normal day for you?
For a variety of reasons I am just what my office is called—a chief
executive officer. The Vice-President is the chief administrative
officer. As President I count on the Vice-President to be an
administrative officer. He makes many of the discretionary decisions
and I make only the ones I need to. I don't need to know
everything—that's called management by exception. Only the problems crop up to my desk.
The problems the clubs might have \>o to the Vice-President ...and all
of that's the inside job.
The outside job is mine.
In the absence of Central Council action the President speaks for
the S.A. I am an ex-officio member of the University Senate
Executive Committee; obliged to meet regularly with the hoard of
directors of the Alumnai Association; speak to outside community
groups; serve as a "sound man" for student opinion on Administration decisions and for other university and outside publics as well.
AH for a sample day-Next Friday I have a meeting for Community
University day at 9:00—an effort to bring local people to campus to
see it in action. At 1 :00 I'm expected to attend an FSA hoard of
directors meeting. Issues on student wages and employment will be
discussed.
Later I'll attend the University Council meeting where they'll
adopt parking regulations and I will have to repiesent students.
Additionally, I'll be in my office to deal with S.A. problems. I'll also
be keeping abreast of developments in the state student's association
meetings and meetings of the State University Board of Trustees.
All that is not a common day, but, it comes out that way every
few weeks. Most of them are a little less packed.
Don't you carry any clauses?
Certainly, I carry a full sixteen hours. I have a 9:00 and a 1 :00
Monday, Wednesday, Friday class and I steal the notes from the S.A.
Controller who is in the same class. I have a night class and a six
hour independent study, the hours of which are rather flexible.
Have you had trouble with hours during other semesters?
No. Every semester I've had some sort of independent study since
my sophomore year.
Do you live off campus?
On campus in Dutch. Living off campus would be tough
accessibility wise.
In my Sophomore year—after the campus demonstrationsSomebody tried to flush a cherry bomb down one of the Johns in
the campus center and blew up the whole John. We could just pop
out of bed, with no hassles und convince the administration that
there was no plot going to blow up all the Johns in the school.
Three fourths of the students live on campus and I experience the
same problems of crappy food, late laundry, standing in lines, and
the rest. I don't consider myself as different from other student*,
even though there are some people who do.
How are S.A. relations with other groups in the school?
With the clubs—good.
At the end of the year problems arise and we get labled bad guys
That's when funds run out or when decisions have been made that
special interest groups don'L like. Those things will happen though.
Generally things are good.
Our relations with the administration are good loo. However there
are increasingly things that disturb me, and I won't say more than
that.
AH far as the outside community goes, we'll he working on that
this year. They don't always hear about the good that happens. They
hear about the political speakers but not the one-hundred and
fourty one pints of blood donated in last weeks' drive We'll be
working to change that
How are your S.A internal relations?
I get along well with most of the people here We have different
styles and perspectives and we disagree some But, that's healthy.
Diversity is one of the interesting things about a university as a
university. It keeps us from boredom.

Would you evaluate S.A. as it stands now?
I suppose like the popular joke, it's both good news and bad news.
There's been a lot of good in the past four years, and a lot 1 like.
We've tuken steps toward providing better services for students in
the form of Bus Line ticket service, etc.
Innovations FSA has improved over its past. They've moved to
better management of services for students
Perhaps FSA SA services are leading effectively toward n student
co-op on campus services.
We've been able to establish heller quality programing without
raising the student activity fee. We've also logged up good
representation records on such items as the tuition, parking
regulations and phone subsidy refunds.
In the bad things, there's always the danger of becoming over
bureaucratized. Lately also I've been concerned over some signs in
the administration and a certain amount of gaming developing
between the Central Council and the Executive branch. I forsee
possible problems in such competition.
Han being President helped you in any way as a person?
Sure. 1 ) It has been an interesting experience^ learning about
groups, people, systems, and processes. 2) I've learned about the
University, its problems and legal environment. A) I've met a lot of

Pine Bush Continued
continued
from page 1
Even more important is the natural water
supply provided by this area. Billions of
gallons of high quality water lie trapped in
the sand, beneath the layers of clay and
natural blocks. This reservoir could be the
answer to the communities' projected water
shortage in the future. Should, however, the
surface be bulldozed and ruined, harmful
substances could pollute the water supply.
Asphalt paving of roads through the area
would not allow rain water to soak back into
the ground, thereby creating a potential
run-off problem and slowing the recharge
rate. In addition, the Pine Bush serves as a
natural laboratory for environmental, biological, botannical geological, and historical
study. It has been used frequently by local
school groups, not to mention by specialists
in several fields for extensive research.
Various groups such as P.Y.E., the Albany
Taxpayer's Association, and Nature Conservancy have long been interested in this area
and have now come together to form a
coalition: People for the Pine Bush. R.P.I,
has organized an entire class of architecture
students whose purpose it is to study the
area and come up with proposals for either
its preservation, or its development. Various
interest groups have made proposals ranging
from complete development to a 600 acre
park to a complete preservation of the
natural areas which s.;!l exist.

because, as we know, primary
and secondary education is primarily financed by the property, taxes and local taxes
from the school district and
local government.
So I would say we made a very
diligent effort to make sure that
funds are there for higher education to expand p r o p e r l y . The
difficulty has been that there has
h(?en a much greater expectation
of higher education for everyone.
The open admissions programs,
which have failed so miserably at
the City University of New
York, are an example, in my
judgment, of a complete waste
of the educational dollar. They
cause people who are not qualified to pursue a college education into pursuits they are just
unable to complete.

A Chat with the Veep
Spiro T. Agnew,
Vice
President of the United

excerpts from the text of
that interview.
Mr, Vice President, what role
do you expect to play in this
election
year?
I think t h e r e will he a dual
role. First of all, I have certain
ongoing responsibilities as Vice
President. My functions as vice
chairman of various c o m m u t e e s .
of course, will c o n t i n u e AN of

1 think the press, the media
generally, have b e c o m e aware
that certain of the matters that I
called their a t t e n t i o n t o did re
quire an introspective look on
their purl, a self-examination
And 1 d o see a t t e m p t s t o be

in saying thai I feel that most
people in the media at the pre

can opinion, ' " i d 1 believe this
c o m e s a b o u t because m o s t of
the great journalism schools reflect a philosophy that is not the

I believe t h a t t h e press has

and it must be treated simply as

Nixon: The Making of a Millionaire
By IRVING WALLACE
Charles Gregory "Bebe" Rebozo is a special friend of President Nixon. He should be. One
way and another, he has made
Nixon very, very wealthy.
One example of how Bebe has
enriched the President occurred
in February 1967, when Nixon
came down to Key Biscaync for a
vacation. It was one of the rare
occasions when Bebe asked Nixon a favor. He asked Nixon to
pose for a photograph with one of
Bebe's friends, Donald Berg,
head of the Cape Florida Development Co., whose friends include friends of Meyer Lansky,
the hoodlum in exile in Israel.
In return for posing for that piclure with Berg, Nixon was given
two pieces of Florida real estate
il a large discount. He bought the
marked-down property at very
little cost. The two lots arc said to
be worth $150,01X1 today. Berg
used Ihe photograph for publicity
that helped him sell other real
estate lo the stale til Florida al

Bebe Heho/.o helped make him

chauffeur. He worked for Pan
American as an airline steward.
He and a brother ran a gas station.
During World War II, he was a
civilian pilot for the Air Transport Command. After the war, he
really got going with a selfservice laundry that grew into a
chain of laundries. He became a
stockholder in two finance companies. Then he hit the jackpot in
Florida real estate.
In 1950, when Smalhers told
Nixon to take a vacation in
Florida, Smalhers asked Bebe to
"show Nixon a good time." The
two men met, liked each other,
and have remained fast friends
for 22 years.
When President Nixon came lo
Miami Beach lo accept the Hepublican Convention's nomination, be stayed in his five-bouse
compound on Key Biscaync.
Bebe packaged thai property and
(hose houses fur him

There are five bouses ringed by

Nixon one house for $127.11(111. and

house for $l2rj.(lll(l
Two other houses in Ibe com
pound arc owned by absentee
landlord Richard Alplanalp and a
man named Campbell who lives
in Indiana and manufactures
automobile parts. They leased
Ihen two houses to the Secret
Service for one dollar each a
year. The fifth house, in the
center of the compound, is Bebe
Rebozo's own home.
ALL
FOR
DICK
Many people say Bebe's a good
guy. True, his business operations have been under investigation a couple of times. So what if
Representative Wright Patman
said there was something fishy
about that $80,000 loan Bebe got
from the Small Business Administration over objections of many
members of the SBA staff?
' So what if the Small Business
Administration guaranteed the
rents in the Centro Commercial
Cubano, a trading mart in which
Bebe and friends had invested
$900,000 — a guarantee that made
the government (that's us, the
taxpayers! take all the risks
instead of Bebe and his friends?
So what if the Miami regional
director of the Small Business
Administration, Thomas Butler,
was an investor in Bebe's Fisher
Island and a stockholder in a
bank Bebe heads up?
Let's nol detract from Bebe
Rebozo's real purpose. Forget all
that business. Bebe's life is
devoled to Nixon.

Thank you, too, for pointing
out that diagnosis and treatment
of V.D. are performed free
through the Student Health Service this year. Massive doses of
penicillin are required preceded
by screening for sy phi His, and
the most dangerous thing a person can do is take small amounts
of penicillin by mouth. This will
never cure gonorrhea and will
only mask syphillis, rendering
future testing for syphillis impossible to interpret,
Finally, I should like to emphasize the value, even though
limited, of the condom in the
prevention of syphillis and gonorrhea. Since the advent of "the

Dear Mr. Hartley:
I welcome this opportunity to
express my thoughts on the new
parking regulations I have researched the area quite extensively for a course and a forthcoming ASP article. Most of the
changes are acceptable. There
are a few that are quite objectionable.
The change in the registration
policy represents several problems. The increase is too high. A
more realistic sum would be $2.
Presently, there are several situations that cannot be dealt with.
What happens to the student
who is here for only one semester? Must he pay the full $5?
Many faculty members own two
cars. Is it right to charge them
$5 to register each car?
I can find no legitimate reason
to discriminate against commuter students. They face the
same problems in reaching the
university as faculty and staff
personnel. In a memorandum
dated March 22, 1972 Rick
Liese best expressed the criticism of this practice, "Why
should faculty and staff have a
preference over commuter students in this area, unless it is to
keep one of the few remaining
vestiges of faculty status alive?
Tli is concept, however, runs
totally ugainst the idea of a
1
university
community' and
treats students as nothing more
than 'second class citizens.'
Some changes should be made
in the operation of the shuttle
bus. During peak hours it might
be advisable to run three busses.
It should be a practice to run
one bus clockwise around the
campus and one counterclockwise for people going to particular points on the campus.
1 am certain the University
Council will take some of these
points into consideration.
Yours truly.

Olympic Games Never a Sanctuary
To the Editor:
I must take issue with the
articles by Jon Guttman and Bill
Heller that mourn the "shattering of the Olympic dream." It is
naive to consider the Olympic
Village a sanctuary from the
world's problems a place where
man may live as i n t e r n a t i o n a l
brothers. It has never been so
and this year's tragedy is the
ultimate proof.
How can one talk about peaceful competition between nations
when each nation is keeping
accurate count of its medal
total'' Especially those two "loving" nations: the U.S. and Russia. As Hitler demonstrated in
193(>, Olympic victories have
more propaganda value than
military victories. The Olympic
method is certainly belter but
it's hardly an atmosphere "free
from poht iriil ml rigue, hatred,
pettiness and carnage "
Can anyone believe that in the
Olympifh, "ii's nol whether you
win or IUM' lull how you play
the game"'" Il -s*>, why do we
only know the names of the gold
medal winners'' Have we ever
M'i'li .my iilU'iil inn paid on those
who tried but didn't do as well?
The press is not totally to blame,
they only reflect our society.
The internationalism of the
Olympics is probably the biggest
joke of all. We are being shown
athletes, with notable rare exceptions, who are only out for
themselves, certainly not for
their country and definitely not
for the "honor of competing."
Let's not be blind, that's what
high-level competition
is all
about.
Cheating by judges is nothing
new. It's been happening in
Olympic competition for years.
Not only cheating for your own
country but cheating for your
allies too! The only new aspect
is that this year the U.S. is being
beaten at its own game and now
they notice that it's ruining the
competition.
So let's lace it The Olympics
lias always been a farce. Fun to
watch, but neverthelessa farce.
Il took three maiiin en with guns
to prove it to the ivsl of the
world

"The State University's biggest task is to seek innovative
methods to give education to as many people as possible at
the lowest possible cost," according to James Warren, vice
chairman of the State University of New York's Board of
Trustees.
This note of constraint and consolidation while still
providing an education for the state's more than 350,000
students seeking a higher education at SUNY was sounded
by almost each one of the 15-member Board of Trustees.
Policy Makers
The trustees are the chief policy making body of the
university system. They approve the establishment of
community and four-year colleges and set standards for
the schools' organization and curricula.
The board sets tuition and fees at the schools, and
distributes funds allocated to the various schools. In
addition, the trustees approve the appointments of the
colleges' presidents as well as the university system's
central administration. Perhaps the most important appointment they make is that of the chancellor of the
system, currently Ernest L. Boyer.
With the fiscal constraints being placed on almost all
state agencies by last year's state legislature, the State
University system found itself faced with ever increasing
demands for education from state residents, while at the
same time operating under a virtual "hold the line"
budget.
Cuts Hurt
"State University of New York was hit very hard,"
Elisabeth Moore, chairman of the board, said, "but we
were determined to be good sports about it...the governor
has been generous so we tried to cut costs."
Like the other trustees, Mrs. Moore hoped that the
university system's budget would not be cut again, "We
can't serve this great number of students on a shoestring,"
she said.
However, most of the trustees voiced an opinion similar
to Gretchen Siegel's when she said, "adversity is sometimes
a good thing . . . we had to evaluate cur programs . . . you
cannot take and take and think the well will never go dry."
Hugh Jones, a trustee from the Utica area, said of the
tightened financial situation of the university system,
"While it causes a lot of pain, it is healthy. We must be
continually ingenious and imaginative about providing a
good education in cheaper ways."
The State University system has grown in leaps and
bounds in the past decade, advancing from a small group
of teacher's colleges to a complex maze of schools from
the community college level to the graduate level. Established by the legislature in 1948, Now York was the last
state in the union to have a public university system. "We
had a lot of catching up to do," Mr. Warren said.
Fast Growth?
To some state residents and lawmakers, the university
system has grown fast, and often too fast for their liking.
Some have charged that the mammoth system has been
wasteful and irresponsible with taxpayer's money.
"I don't question that we've grown too fast . . . but we
had to grow that fast to meet the needs..." Mr. Warren
said.
"Every Monday morning quarterback is better than the
Saturday morning quarterback. I don't see any of what 1
would call waste in expenditures," Mr. Jones said.
"There is a turbulence in society that causes some to
turn on the students saying 'you're to blame'. . . when
they are merely pointing up society's ills, but some people
don't want to see the problems," Mr. Jones said, and
added, "some people take this frustration out on the
university system."
Manly Fleischmann, a trustee from Buffalo, disagrees
with his fellow board members on SUNY's expansion rate
at least in one area. "I feel SUNY has over-built. There are
enough, if not too many, campuses. We must finish those

Governor Rockefeller has announced the appointment of
Robert R. Douglass, 40, forma Secretary to the Governor,
as a member of the Board of Trustees of the State
University of New York, for a In mending June 30, 1980.
Mr. Douglass, a native of Binghamton and a graduate of
Dartmouth College and Cornell University Law School, is
associated in the private practice of law in the firm of
Milbank, Tweed, Hadley and McCloy.
Mr. Douglass was appointed First Assistant Counsel to
the Governor in December 196-1 and served in that
capacity until he was appointed Counsel to the Governor
in September 1965. On January I l%ll, he was appointed
Secretary to the Governor He is „ member of the New

are not pictured here
we are committed to and not start new ones," he said.
"The state is not able to afford new construction, and
it's not needed. We must learn to manage our resources
better," Mr. Fleischmann said
He is in favor of increasing teacher work loads, and feels
that while the university system should accept as many
students as possible students should not all be allowed to
go to their first choice if there is not sufficient room.
Varied I ducation
And what about the education provided by the 72
campus-university system which runs a wide gamut from a
traditional liberal arts program to specialized areas on the
undergraduate levels?
"We need to continue to preserve the high academic
standards of scholarship while being responsive to the
needs of all of our society," John Holloman a trustee from
New York City said.
"We must work close with industry so we will not be
training people for non exislant jobs . . . we need to
produce more professionals at a more rapid rate," he said.
Mr. Holloman feels that innovation and change are
necessary for a viable and meaningful educational system.
"There are many traditions in education that many see as
meaningless. We must reappraise our tendencies to cling to
traditional educational concepts and methods," he said.
Student I'Cals
Don Wickham, a trustee from the Binghamton area, had
somewhat mixed feelings about the educational goals that
some student persue, as well as the university's move
towards some form of an open admissions policy.
"Too many kids are going (through the full school
lineup," he said. "The cmphaM is on too many people
going to school without knowini what they're going to do
perhaps they should have) this kind of counseling
before they go to SUNY," lie sail.
Mr. Wickham feels that "liberallarts in fine for those who
can know and use them but *n arts education doesn't
train you for a lot of things
"I believe people should hav^a job. I think we should
have more technical schools," Mr. Wickham said.
A five-year veteran of the wwrd, Mr. Wickham commented. "One canqotoj^ 1 ' 0 0 ' a n d "^Jor in philosophy,,

but it is pretty hard for one to philosophize for a living."
Clifton Phalen, a trustee from Shelter Island echoed the
university's recently released master plan saying, "there are
a lot of people who would do well in community colleges
and not feel duty bound to get a four-year arts degree.
Instead, they could step out and find what they want, and
if they find they want more education, we should provide
them with the opportunity to do so."
Margaret Quackenbush, a trustee from Herkimer,
sounded a note that has been heard more and more in
recent years concerning the financing of education.
"Society is demanding that the young have a higher
education in order to qualify for jobs and become a part of
the work force. We must be willing to pay more, and the
day is going to come when two years of higher education
will be free to anyone who wants it," she said.
She indicated that the cost for this education should not
have to be borne solely by the state citizen or student, but
that the federal government should help in the funding.
Private Financing
The question of financing higher education has not just
been a problem of the Board of Trustees of the State
University of New York. A hue and cry within the state
has risen from the private institutions of higher education
that claim they will be forced to close if they are not given
financial assistance.
While the trustees all acknowledged the importance of
these schools, they did not feel that it was the State
University's responsibility to help keep them alive. Most
felt that with better management and some aid from the
state they would be able to keep going.
"This is not SUNY's responsibility. The well run private
schools are getting along," according to Roger Sinnot, a
trustee from Utica.
"I think if the private schools expect the state to pay and
take over their financial burdens, they might as well be a
part of State University," he said.
Perhaps the greatest critic of State University was Dr.
John S. Holloman, Jr. A black, he most acutely felt the
plight of the underprivileged in the state.
"We need to broaden our philosophical understanding of
higher education since we do have a society which is

economically and socially classed there is a difference in
the opportunities offered," he said.
"It is up to State University to fulfill its goal of helping
every man become all that he is capable of being," Dr.
Holloman said.
He felt that State University had not been given enough
money to work with, and said, "The remedial and
enrichment programs need bolstering."
Quite obviously critical of some of the system's policies
he commented, "It is impossible to educate citizens to the
basic truths of humanity by simply mouthing a lot of
tenets that we don't hold."
Trustee Operations
The Board of Trustees is currently operating with only
14 members since one appointment is pending. The
governor, with the consent of the Legislature appoints the
board members for a term of 10 years. No trustee may
serve once he has reached the age of 70.
Although the university's central administration is
located in Albany, the trustee' monthly two-day meetings
are usually held in New York City. Trustees are reimbursed
for their traveling expenses but receive no salary for their
service.
William Hassett, from Buffalo, described the trustees'
duties as "... to mind, oversee and set policy for the State
University..."
"Ultimately," he said, "the control of the over all policy
of th# university rests in the people of the state through
the trustees."
Acknowledging the criticism often leveled against the
university. Mr. Hassett said, "The activities of State
University should be commended rather than carped."
Terming the basic judgments of the board "good ones,"
Oren Root, an eight year veteran ol the board from New
York City, described the board as "a series of people
representing special interests," and felt their general
backgrbunds were a great aide to their developing policy
and the like.
On the possibility of including SUNY students or faculty
members on the board, he said, "we wouldn't have enough
room...and noted the potential hazards of selecting the
right student or professor who could represent all students
and faculty members.

It was an ideal weekend not to
play baseball, and the games on
Saturday would probably have
been postponed, if it had not
been a tournament.
The "games" started on Friday, with the first two contests
pairing LIU against Central
Connecticut and Albany versus
Oneonta. Central took advantage
of numerous LIU miscues, and
udvanced to the semi-final round
with a 7 to 2 win. However,
Albany's luck did not go as far
as Central's. Albany bowed to
the Red Dragons of Oneonta, 6
to 2, to take a seat in the losers
bracket. The Danes had battled
back against Oneonta in the top
of the fourth, knotting the
score, but found themselves
trailing by four runs via John
Szczeck's three-run double in
the bottom of the fourth. Kevin
Quinn had his three game win
streak stopped and saw his record drop to l i t . In the other
first round games, Seranton and
Springfield advanced to the
semi-finals with Seranton beating City College of New York. I

Ithaca, 7 to 'I.
stealing two bases in a row.
In the final round, it was
Springfield and Oneonta tied
after five full innings, 1 to 1.
With two gone in the top of the
sixth inning, Springfield scored
five runs against Oneonta
pitcher, Cary Davis, who got
into a wildness streak. He hit a

Israeli Dancing a Success
Defense Stops RIT; Danes Win 28-7
by Bruce Might
Defense was the name of the
game last Saturday as Albany's
Purple People Eaters led the
Danes to a 28-7 victory over
RIT.
The defense provided one
touchdown, gave the Danes great
field position that setup two
other scores, recovered four
fumbles and picked off four
passes. The shutout string of 14
quarters without being scored
upon was finally broken in the
wanning minutes of the game.
The statistics were almost equal
but the tough Albany defense
made the difference.
The weather was not favorable
to the fans as ;a sparse crowd
showed up';i but it didn't bother
the Danes ground attack chalking up 214 yards. RIT was
troubled by the weather, completing only 5 of 18 passes in a
strong, gusty wind and had to
depend on a ground attack.
Albany opened the scoring the
third time they had the ball. Tim
Myers' crunching tackle jarred
the ball loose from RIT's quarterback Wade Winter and Albany
recovered on the opponent's 31
yard line. Albany drove to the
goal line on 11 plays, all on the
ground, highlighted by a 14 yard
sweep by Marvin Perry to the 3
yard line. From there. McCoy
Allister went up the middle for 6
points.
RIT took possession of the ball
and started to march up the field
primarily on runs up the middle
by Jack Roma ..o and end sweeps
by John Hu nprey. Winter completed the first pass of the day
but the drive was halted and the
Tigers punted to Albany's 22
yard line.
On the first play, Bertuzzi
made the key play of the game
when he faked a handoff and
went back to pass. The freshman
signal caller made his first completion ever at Albany a memorable one as he found Bob
Baxter some 30 yards in the
clear and Baxter scampered 50
yards to the goal line,out-racing
a RIT defender.
State completed their scoring
for the half, thanks to the deense. With RIT punting, Albany
swarmed in on the punter and
Vinnie Peirce got his hands on
the ball. The ball skidded backward. In the scramble Arnie Will
picked the loose ball up and ran
ten yards to give Albany a 21-0
half time lead.
RIT, hoping to stop a psyched
Albany defense, received the
second half kickoff but gave the
ball right back to Albany two
plays later on a fumble. Albany
couldn't do much though and
Perka was forced to kick. Once
again RIT turned the ball over
when safety John Johnson
stepped in front of his men and
picked off the bull bringing it
back to the Tiger's 40. The
Danes drive, faulted and Perka
came in to punt. Perka lifted a
wobbly punt that bounced on
the 16 and skidded off an RIT
player's leg at the 12 and Carvin
Payne quickly jumped on the
ball. Two plays later Bertuzzi
took the ball 12 yards on a
sweep to his left for Albany's
final score,
' n t n e fourth quarter, play was
sloppy by both teams. Albany
lost the ball on two fumbles
sandwiched around a diving interception by Dane co-captain
Arnie Will in a series of three
plays. RIT was finally able to
hang on to the ball and drove for
their only score with Humprey

going over from the 14 on a
sweep. Albany fumbled' again
but RIT's fourth down pass was
dropped by Joe Moffett in the
end zone. With the seconds
ticking away, Wade tried a long
pass but Jeff O'Donnell picked it
off and Gordy Kupperstein ran
out the last 10 seconds to preserve a 28-7 victory for Albany.
Outstanding for the Danes on
defense was Tim Myers who was
all over the field. The Danes
offensive line was quite impressive, opening1 up many holes for
the backfield.
Albany now takes their 2-0
record to Niagara next Saturday
night.

have to disprove when he returns
to action.
There's
been
tremendous
competition for guard spots,
between three tough linemen.
Bill "Black Bart" Adams, Rick
Duell and Joe Renal do all saw
plenty of action against RIT.
Adams, a married veteran, is a
transfer from Hudson Valley
Community College, where he
starred at tight end last year.
Instead of fighting Ed Perka for
that position, Adams moved to
guard, where he earned a start inn
role and has performed admirably. A converted fullback.
Rick Duell uses quickness and
power to prove his point. Joe
Renaldo "has it all," according to
Ford. Combining size, strength,
and agility, he has come on
lately to challenge for full lime

THE RADICAL BIBLE undoubtedly will fill a vital need
among modern Americans -the
need for articulate and compelling moral statements that address themselves to today's problems in contemporary terms
—but with traditional theological
backing.
The English adaptation (it sold
more than 100,000 copies in
Europe under the title BIBEL
PROVOKATIV) is now in iU
third printing which brings to
60,000 the total printed in
America.
This adaptation was undertaken because the publishers believed the scriptures had been
used by Christians, pew and pulpit, too long only to comfort the
afflicted, and they felt they
should also afflict the comfortable. The scriptures remain contemporary, they feel. They address themselves to the problems
which face us, if we care to
listen. The Bible doesn't give pat
solutions, but it can prick the
conscience to the point we are
driven to see solutions and to
become part of the solutions.
Perhaps the most impressive

nighu David, along with two
from. Union and RPI, people
from groups such as Modem
Dance and Polk Dance. Jewish
and n on-Jewish, black and
white. Debby finds the group
very worthwhile because it is the
type of club where people can't
be shy. Dancing leads to togetherness and sociability between people. It is a good way
to meet people, especially for
freshmen. It is neither structured
or restricted-dancing is a very
free and easy type of club where
everyone can participate. Most
people find it very relaxing and
informal. Debby says it is a good
way to "let off steam from the
tensions of the week." People
pick up dances very easily and
quickly as many of the same
steps are found in the different
dances.
To let off steam, relax and
enjoy are indeed the reasons that
many people come to Israeli
dancing. However many other
people come because they wish
to be more culturally involved
with Israel. According to David
Surowitz, ever since the 1967
Arab-Israeli War there has been a
growing desire on the part of
many people to identify more
closely with Israel, and doing
dancing is one part of relating to
Israeli culture. Dancing makes
many people more aware and
sensitive to the Israeli situation.
This year Israeli dancing has
been drawing a record number
of people. According to Roberta
Kupietz, the group hopes to put
on a major performance this
year, similar to the one put on
last year during Israeli night.

knew. David said yes and has
been teaching ever since. According to him, Israeli dance has
become more successful every
year. Now under the sponsorship
of Hebrew Club, dancing draws
between 80 to 90 people every
week. Last year, because of the
success of Israeli dancing, Dr.
Edith Cobane, Chairman of

that wonderful forgotten entity
-the offensive line. Yes, there is a
reason that Albuny rolled up

Basically a young bunch who

THE RADICAL BIBLE IS
THE RELEVANT BIBLE to
more than 30,000 young Americans who have purchased copies
during the past 3 months.
Pick any hot issue t o d a y peace, justice, equality, freedom,
love, the poor, etc.— and the
Bible has something to nay about
it.
Now dig out those relevant
passages irom both the Old and
New Testament, group them under key, meaningful and current
classifications—then match them
up with the writings of today's
statesmen, educators, politicians
and philosophers, authors, revolutionaries and churchmen, and
you have a hard-hitting, fastpaced little Bible that's as relevant today as the Bible ever was.
This unusual American bible
offers a unique and morally
forceful approach to today's
monumental problems of war,
hunger, racism and economic exploitation.
As such, the book's intertwined statements form a cogent
philosophical, ethical and moral
critique of the relationship between the rich and the poor of

Frampton 's Camel
played at RPI earlier this month,
so it's as good a time as any to
mention Pete's recently released
solo LP, Winds of Change (A&M
SP 4348). Rest assured, the album's a great deal better than
the concert was. Pete's one of
the best English hard-rock guitarists, and this album displays
his style quite well. The studio
format gives him a chance to
come through. The material
varies—all of it is at least tolerable, and two or three songs—
"Oh, For Another Day," "Fig
Tree Bay," and "The Lodger"-stand on their own merits.
Yes demonstrated on their last
album, "Fragile", thut they had
finally learned to build their
separate talents into one coherent whole. Now they've released a follow-up, "Close to the
Edge" (Atlantic SD 7244) that
builds on and refines the style
developed on "Fragile." "Close
to the Edge" is a "concept"
album; the title composition occupies all of side one, and a
mini suite, "And You and 1"
shares side two with the longish
"Siberia! Khatru."
I'm generally
prejudiced
against ' ' c o n c e p t " albums,
most of them don'I have the
halls to stand up as rock and roll
and they don't have the intelli
gence to be anything else. Jethro
TulIs
Thick as u Brick" was
merely/ the most recent of a
long string of such disasters. But
if any band could bring one
off.Ves could, and, happy surprise, they did! Credit for this
superb album goes to all fiv<\
members of the band, but primarily to three—singer/lyricist
Jon Anderson, bassist Chris
Squire, and keyboard magician
Rick Wakemun. Squire supplies
the cojones; his bass figures are
completely unique, very European in a way that's hard to
defi ne but easy to feel, and
totally compelling. He doesn't
play a rhythmic bass, and he
doesn 't play counter-point to
the guitar (the way Phil Lesh
does), and he doesn't even play
the jumpy, driving lines Jack
Bruce perfected. His conception,
his phrasing, and his timing are
something else.
Rick Wakeman supplies the
musical intelligence to keep this
melange together. Equally adept
on grand piano, harpsicord, organs, mellotrons, and synthesizers, he has to be the best
keyboard player in rock (Keith
Emerson paid to see him in
concert recently) and one of the
best keboard players in any style
of music today. Anderson supplies both the vocals and 'he
lyrics in fine style; his highpitched, a-sexual voice becomes
the perfect instrument for the
twisting, surrealistic pictures his
lyrics paint. There's a printed
lyric sheet so that you can figure
it all out, but it's more fun just'
to lay back and let phrases—
"Crossed a line around the
change of summer".."Changed
only for a sight of sound the
space agreed"... flash through
your mind. With each listening,
different phrases seem to flash
out, so it all works out in the
end.
1 have only one reservation in
recommending this album—this
is dense, complex, layered
music. On my stereo, which is a
fairly fancy rig, the production
and separation are excellent. On
a cheap stereo, the album might
sound Jumbled and chaotic. But
t h e n , 'weren't^ you really
looking for a good excuse to

POCO "Socko" in Gym!
I.LIX, NoJXf
by Steve Tesser
and Russ Craig
Last year Poco cancelled their
performance because Richie
Furay had come down with
"food poisoning." But Sat.night
there was no doubt that Poco
had arrived and in good health.
Poco must be one of the best
live bands around. They played
h a p p y , foot-stompin', kneeslappin', shit-kickin' music that
could get anyone off so long as
you are alive. If only they didn't
have to play in that horrid gym.
rose n berg
Poco and Gun Hill Road
played "the G y m " admirably on
Saturday.
The concert opened with
Gunhill Road doing some very
good songs, including one quite
excellent one, "Forty-second
Street." This was done with nice
smooth treble vocals, and iL's no
wonder that this was their hit.
They used an electric guitar, an
acoustic guitar and the piano (as
compared to their using three
acoustic guitars for ilmost all
the other songs). Gunhill Road
also played "All the Children," a
beautiful, compassionate song,
followed by "Love," a nice,
moving song with a catchy Lune.
Poco started the evening with
"Hoedown" which is on their
"From the Inside" album. They
played older songs such as
"Come On" and "Picking Up the
Pieces" and several tunes from
iheir soon to be released allium.
Speaking to one of the Poco
members later, 1 learned that
Poco's new album I to be out
nexL month) will concentrate
more on the rock aspect of their
. music, and will be completely
different from their past albums.
He also said that the group's
style and music has changed
si nee Paul Cotton replaced
Jimmy Messina. (Gunhill Road
will be ri'leasing their second
album in a few weeks on Kama
Sutra records, their first having
been released on Mercury).
more of a lead guitarist than was
Messina. Messina played more
rhythm and a few lead fill-ins
with Young doing most of the
lead work. Now, Cotton and
Young share more of the leads.
Poco won't be in the area for a
while as their tour will take
them throughout the West coast.
Tliey played for more than a year
almost strictly in the East. According to drummer' George
Grantham, this next tour is designed to rebuild Poco's popularity out West. Grantham is just
like the music Poco plays-happy,
friendly and out-going.
It was rather cold outside the
gym so Grantham excused himself and went to a waiting car.
And with that an exciting
evening with Poco came to an
end. It truly was a hoedown and
I loved the way it felt.

Corning Clarifies City Policies
by Ed Deady
City Hall Correspondent
Once again, the issue of student evictions from off-campus
apartments dominated the discussion at yesterday's news conference held by Albany mayor
Erastus Corning. Fielding questions from local television, radio
and press reporters, the mayor
attempted to clarify the reasons
behind the city crack-down on
landlords who are violating city
zoning ordinances by renting
one and two family apartments
to two or more unrelated students.
roof and no boarding-house type
facilities may operate in these
The landlords, as permanent
residents and taxpapers of the
city are responsible for knowing
the zoning laws (which were
revised as recently as 1968) and,
according to the prevalent view
from City Hall, the officials may
hold them liable for any violations of the zoning ordinances.
Forewarned
The mayor stated that a number of neighborhood groups
(Manning Boulevard
residents
were specifically mentioned) had
lodged complaints with his office. The complaints centered
around the issue of absentee
landlords who had rented their
apartments
to
numerous
students who were accused by
the residence groups of causing
loud disturbances. The neighborhood groups also complained
of ulleged student abuse of
parking facilities and student
involvement in the creation of
pu blic eyesores-such as scattered trash-uround appartment
sites.
If the neighborhoods from
which these complaints originated were zoned for mul tifumity dwellings, there would
not be legal grounds for the city
to take such strong action
against the landlords. But the
areas involved are not zoned for
such purposes; they are zoned
only for multi-family structures,
Therefore, not more than two
families may live under the Hume
The mayor also stressed the
fact that the landlords involved
had been warned as recently as
last March that they must comply with zoning laws but despite
the warnings, most of them
continued to rent apartments to
unrelated people, creating the
illegal resident-border situation.
Corning claimed as he did last
week, that all area colleges and
universities had been contacted
as early as last spring and told to
inform their students of the impending city crackdown. It was
hoped this would give returning
students adequate time to find
housing facilities in ureas zoned
for multi-family living.
The mayor went on to state
that it was not the city's intention to harass students by using
these ordinances. In Coming's
view, it is the city's obligation to
enforce the laws as they appear
on record. He also stated that
city courts would probably
sympathize with students faced
with eviction and would insure
them adequate time to find
apartments in properly zoned
facilities. This would prevent
landlords from giving tenants
unreasonable eviction deadlines
to meet.
When asked if he felt the
zoning ordinances would have to
be revised to reflect the growth
of the city, the mayor responded
by saying that the population of
the city had not increased in the
past few years--in fact, it had
decreased- and therefore he
could not presently see any need
for a change in the city ordinances.
Legislative Investigation
One other major- issue was
covered at the news conference:
the upcoming state legislative
committee
investigation of
Albany
County
and city
g o v e r n m e r j * practices. The
mayor wa.*?asked if he would
testify at hearings the committee
will conduct and he stated that
if asked, he would appear.
However, he said he did feel
there might be political motives
behind the timing of the investigation through news accounts
in the Times-Union and did not
know why the investigatory
committee picked the city of
Albany as the starting point of
ihe probe.
Students Map Plans
Student reaction to the city's enforcement of the residence codes
has been quick and decisive.
A large gathering of people concerned with the evictions problems
met Wednesday night in LC-1 to organize a "basis on which to fight
the city." Some of the students at the meeting had reportedly
received telephone calls from their landlords, saying that they may
soon be evicted.
Meanwhile a group of student government officials prepared to
meet with Mayor Corning at ten o'clock this morning to discuss the
entire issue and search for possible solutions.
"What we hope to do is open some lines of communication with
the city administration," explained Central Council Chairman Ken
Stokem, who is one of those attending. "Our attitude is not going to
be a hostile one."
Another participant, Student Association President Mike Lampert,
plans to follow up his personal letter to the mayor with a verbal
discussion outlining the potential economic loss to the city if the
crackdown is successful.
"I intend to express to him my concern over the fact that students
are the ones who will suffer if this crackdown is actually carried
out," Lampert explained last night. "But I will also outline the
potential economic consequences to the city of the proposed'
actions."
Lampert will be accompanied not only by Stokem but also by
Central Council Vice-Chairman Pat Curran, Student Association Vice
President Eric Joss, Student Affairs Chairman Steve Gerber, Council
member Eric Lonschein and a representative of the campus media.
Wednesday's meeting was organized and conducted by Barbara
Tytell and David Saffan, who cleared up some of the rumors
concerning the present situation.
Tytell opened the meeting by explaining that certain neighborhood
assoc. actions, particularly in the Manning Boulevard vicinity, had
petitioned the City of Albany to evict students from homed in the
neighborhoods. Authority for such action stem? from a city statute
prohibiting more than two unrelated people from living in one
single-family dwelling.
Some students at the meeting expressed the feeling that this
"ancient" law had been dug out of the books by peeved Albanians
to be used as a weapon against them. Other students at the meeting
claimed that this was not the case, since the law had been raised in
H)nH, and has been enforced since then though not as stringently as
this year.
Still other students thought that these citizen groups were reacting
primarily to noiuy student households, and the "influence of
bearded, hairy hippies" might have up the neighborhood children.
The possibility of testing the unconstitutionality of the housing
ordinance was also discussed. Steve Gerber, a commuter and
chairman of the University Senate's Student Affairs Council told the
gathering that legal actum: against the city cannot be taken until a
student is actually served an eviction notice-whlch has apparently
not happened yet.
The newly formed Students Tenants' Union may ask the Student
Association for financial assistance to pay a lawyer to take the case
to court, but Gerber cautioned that the SUNY Board of Trustees
prohibits the use of student tax money for political purposes. "We're
not political!" shouted someone in the audience, but Gerber said he
just wanted people to know that there could be problems.
