POCO "Socko" in Gym!

POCO "Socko" in Gym!
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.

Poco and Gun Hill Road

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.

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.
The mayor stated that a number of neighborhood groups
(Manning Boulevard
were specifically mentioned) had
lodged complaints with his office. The complaints centered
around the issue of absentee
landlords who had rented their
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
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
investigation of
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'
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.

Off to a Strong Start
Preparations Under Way
For Upcoming C-U Day
b y Aralynn A b a i e
If you've driven or walked
o n t o campus recently, y o u have
probably noticed large, paitel
signs with a purple and w h i t e
graphic of a U and a C. T h e s e are
not misplaced Utica Club advertisements. They are announcements of S U N Y A ' s u p c o m i n g
Open House.
The event is slated for Saturday, October 2 1 , from 1 0 a.m.
t o 4 p.m. It was planned as an
effort t o develop town-gown relationships "giving all Captial
area residents a chance t o see,
hear, and share the university
and its activites."
N o w , the next logical question
is what activities are going t o be
seen or hear, much less shared,
on a typical S U N Y A Saturday.
Herein lies the rub.
First of all, October 2 1 , is part
of Homecoming weekend. Programming for that day includes
an alumni tent, which will provide refreshments and music
from 11 a.m. o n ; the H o m e c o m ing Parade at 1 p.m.; and the
Homecoming football game, this
year against Brockport, at 2 p.m.
In addition, a host o f exhibits,
tours, lectures, multi-media presentations, performances, c o f f e e
hours, demonstrations, discus-
sions and displays have
planned for the day.
H i e lecture center alone has
scheduled over 2 0 presentations;
from a media trip through the
Adirondack* t o a multi-media
from a university produced film
about Community Service t o a
television tape of "Oh, What a
Lov«lv War."
Administrators and faculty are
planning t o be on hand in relatively informal situations. T h e
history and English departments,
for instance, are planning c o f f e e
hours, and Dr. Benezet will be in
his office, ready for visitors,
from 1 t o 3 .
Lectures will include a discussion and demonstration of stage
lighting by the theatre department; "Planning for your Aged
Parent," by the School of Nursing; and "Police and Local Community," by the School of
Criminal Justice.
Exhibits are planned by a host
of groups. T o name a few, displays will be set u p by the
of art, classics,
English, German, Italian, atmospheric science (on the 22nd
floor of Mohawk Tower), biology, chemistry, geology, physics, anthropology, geography,
inter-American studies, psychology and s o c i o l o g y , the Office of
by Mindy A l t m a n
International Programs, School
of Business, S c h o o l o f Social
Welfare, Infirmary and Physical
plant are also planning exhibits.
The Allen Collegiate Center
and College o f General Studies
will man information booths,
and tours have been planned for
the nuclear accelerator, experimental greenhouse, PAC, library,
computing center, a residence
area, steam plant, m o t o r pool,
m a i n t e n a n c e shops,
education building, and the
health center.
Student input in the effort will
center largely around the volunteers w h o will act as general bus
and walking tour guides and w h o
will man general information
booths. Guides and booth sitter
are still needed, and any o n e
interested should c o m e t o o n e of
two training sessions: Tuesday,
October 1 0 , at 4 p.m. in LC 1,
or Wednesday, October 1 1 , at
7:30 p.m. in LC 2 1 . T h o s e w h o
are interested, but w h o cannot
come either time, should contact
Ron Daniel, 7 - 7 7 9 6 , or Aralynn
Abare, 7 - 7 7 1 6 .
In addition, students will be
performing in music ensembles
and theatre productions, and
will be at work in art, language,
and science labs. Also, several
student association organizations
are expected t o participate.
On M o n d a y night, October 2,
meeting r o o m 3 1 5 in the Campus Center was s t a r t i n g t o fill.
By 7:30 t h e r e were 50 people

Off-campus housing director Joe Scaring also spoke t o t h e group

Various forms of protest were also discussed, including the
possibility of calling for a general student rent strike. T h e studi'rn
decided to place a bulletin b o a r d in the Crisis 5 3 0 0 office on Dulci
Quad as a central c o m m u n i c a t i o n p o i n t a n d a place t o post evictim

Dr. Charles G. Fisher
Director of Residences
Increasingly, colleges and universities are considering alternate
uses for campus residence halls.
This "creativity" has been necessitated by two factors—residence
hails recently opened or nearing
completion whose need was
based on a growth curve that has
subsequently leveled off, and
larger numbers of students electing to live off-campus. For
some administrations facing this
dilemma, the housing of senior
citizens on campus has been
identified as one viable alternative. Interest in this possibility
has been generated by the following factors.
Many students, at least since
the middle sixties, have indicated repeatedly that colleges
and universities today do not
represent the "real world"—they
lack relevance. The same academic aloofness which was considered an advantage for students a generation ago is seen by
today's s t u d e n t s ^ ; a basis to
criticize the «P* experience.
With at l e a s t ^ m e justification,
these students are saying that
their campuses are too protected
Charles G. Fisher
the, real world onto the campus
might be to provide opportunities for students to relate to
a more diverse campus population.
For -their part, many senior
citizens have been vocal in their
dissatisfaction with the standard
fare of retirement homes and
communities. Just as the college
community is seen by many of
its students, these institutions
for the aged are also judged a
shallow reflection of real life
with little or no opportunity to
relate to u broader age spectrum.
These people see no need to
leave their own communities and
enter one where their days are
filled with meaningless activity
to keep busy. They feel as if
they can still make a significant
contribution to their society as
well as lend meaning to their
own lives through post-retirement activity. Most possess
knowledge that can only come
from years of significant experience—experience that can be of
value to others, particularly
young people.
Another factor to be considered is, actually, the catalyst
allowing the consideration of
other than student use of residence halls in the first place.
Many residence programs are
having real difficulty in maintaining a satisfactory level of
occupancy. Most administrators
would be loath to re-establish
the parietal rule requiring oneampus residence which was enforced ut many institutions up
until a few years ago. And yet,
the enrollment growth of colleges and universities has slowed
appreciably and residence halls
which were planned five and six
years ago are just not needed
today, In addition, students interested in experiencing as much
of a "real life" living environment as possible are being at-

Basically, retired people have
many things to offer which can
prove valuable to students who,
are facing the reality of finishing
college and entering a particular
occupation or profession. An
example might be the benefit
that a retired Chemical Engineer
could be to a student in Chemical Engineering just beginning to
consider his professional career.
Additionally, many retired people have developed skills n o t
necessarily related to their professional lives which could also
be of meaning to college students. A life long interest and
subsequent ability in carpentry
could easily strike a responsive
chord in the life of a student
with a similar, but as yet undeveloped interest in this same
On the other hand, it is suggested that the lives of senior
citizens could be enriched measurably from their experience
with students as persons of
worth with many skills and
knowledge to be shared. The
self-esteem of these people could
be raised considerably as a result
of their feeling that they are
needed by others and consequently, that they are still
people of worth.
The possibility of such a program being given serious consideration at the State University
of New York at Albany is unknown at this time. The need for
additional academic and administrative space this year has been
great enough for a residence
facility to be used for thie purpose. However, the housing of
senior citizens in S.U.N.Y.A. residence halls remains a viable
Possibility and one that will warrant close attention should the'
need arise to devise additional
wnys to use residence halls.

tracted to off-campus accommodations where a higher degree of
independence can be realized.
It is not surprising, then, that
the possiblity of housing senior
citizens on campuses has been
raised. The Saint Mary's Housing
Project in Syracuse is, perhaps,
the first project to encompass
this concept. Several years ago,
Syracuse University and the City
of Syracuse found that each
owned adjacent land insufficient
to meet their respective needs
for additional student and senior
citizen housing. They developed
a cooperative project combining
both types of housing in a single
architectural plan, with a significant number of shared facilities
and services. To date, their experience has been positive with
the degree of interaction between the two generations most
impressive. Beginning with the
current academic year, the State
University of New York, College
at Buffalo, is leasing one of its
residence halls to Erie County
for use as a senior citizen housing facility. The possibility of
joint programming although not
originally planned, is now being
considered with considerable interest from both the students
and the senior citizens.

Propped-up Thieu Prevents Peace Accord
The writer was President Johnson's Ambassador to the Paris peace talks.
WASHINGTON — The American public
is entitled to know what the President's current plan is to end the war in Vietnam. As the
election campaign heats up, Henry Kissinger
has held highly publicized secret talks in
Paris and in Saigon. An impression that real
progress toward peace is being made is being
created. Secretary Rogers personally predicts
peace before the end of the year. Yet nothing
has been disclosed of the substance of these
talks and therefore it is impossible to judge
whether realistic offers are being made or
whether the Hurry of activity is just part of
the effort to re-elect the President.
The last public United States offer was the
withdrawal of all American troops within
four months after the start of an internationally supervised cease-fire and the
return of our prisoners. If the North Vietnamese are being required to give up permanently their military struggle while Thieu remains in power, there is no possibility of the
offer being accepted.
When I was the American negotiator in
Paris we recognized that cease-fire first was
not a promising route. The North Vietnamese
have been consistent in asserting that
political and military aspects of a settlement
are indivisible. To a guerrilla a cease-lire
without some settlement is a surrender.
Any political settlement must necessarily
involve the status of Thieu. Since the bomb
ing halt of November 1%8 opened the way to
serious negotiations. President Thieu has
been a major obstacle to a compromise solution.
Although we had agreed in October 1968 to
join the negotiations after the bombing
stopped, he first reneged on his commitment
and then created the unseemly dispute over
the shape of the table in order to break off or
at least to delay talks until the new Administra:ion took office. Finally, jusl before the
inauguration in 1%1), the path was cleared
for substantive negotiations including the private talks which were the only place progress
could be made.
During this period the North Vietnamese
had removed most of their forces from the
northern two provinces of South Vietnam and
practically ceased fighting there. Instead of
seizing the opportunity for immediate dis-
cussion -ef mutual reduction of hostilities
which Secretary of Defense Clark Clifford
had publicly called for as the first order of
business, the Nixon Administration took as
its first task restoring of close relations with
Mr. Thieu. These relations had become badly
frayed as the Johnson Administration applied
pressure to induce Mr. Thieu lo participate in
the peace talks.
Then, as now, President Thieu saw his pri
mary goal as maintaining his personal position. This meant opposing a negotiated solution since any compromise would inevitably
eliminate his absolute power.
The Nixon Administration tolerated
Thieu's scuttling of real negotiations by
refusing to have his representatives participate in private meetings with the National
Liberation Kront. When, two months later, he
condescended to accept private meetings, he
stated that under no circumstances would he
agree to a coalition government. He continues
to oppose adamantly any coalition government although it is obvious thai there can be
no political settlement without some sharing
of power.
Even now. when the comings and goings of
Dr. Kissinger have raised some hope of
moving toward peace, Mr. Thieu has again
dug in his heels. This month he called lor
continuing "relentless bombing" of North
Vietnam for "six or seven months more" to
produce the "total destruction of their economic and war potential."
So far as we can tell, the Nixon Administration has continued to give Mr. Thieu veto
power over the United States negotiating
position. Despite the Administration's a
vowed solicitude for the right of the South
Vietnamese people to self-determination il
helped to create and then excused the faults
of Thieu's re-election in a one-candidate race.
The overwhelming majority of the South
Vietnamese people clearly want peace. They
showed this by giving the most votes in last
August's Senatorial election to a Buddhist
slate which emphasized a compromise peace.
Instead the people have been made victims of
continuing war and are subject to repressive
military rule, including the jailing and
torturing of non-Communist opponents and
'he suppression of the press.

As a graduating senior as ol

the fee for parking. As I understand it, the fee is $5.00 for the

Since I am graduating in three
months, I do not feel that it it

Once again the bookstore has
done it again. It has performed
in its usual fouled-up manner.
And who suffers for this gross
incompetence? No one but the
The following is the case in
point: a certain chemistry professor ordered a sufficient number of books for his course. The
bookstore, however, felt that the
professor was over-ordering and
automatically cut back his order.
The result is that one third of
the class is without a textbook.

Well, the ASF has done it again.
On Oct. 3, the ASP printed a
correction for the address of

been printed incorrectly in Lynn

However, your correction needs

To the Editor:
In a letter in the ASP (Sept.
26), Mitchell Frost claims to see
no contradiction between condemning terrorism while supporting war. And yet, in the
body of his letter, he not only
demonstrates the contradiction,
but he fully endorses it.
First he says that the power to
punish terrorists "has been legitimized by tradition." He then
says that the United States or
Israel may kill innocent people
in countries that harbor terrorists--for this is precisely what
"the waging of a defensive war"
Mr. Frost has no qualms about
killing people provided "tradition" spreads the responsibility
thin enough to prevent guilt. He
fails to see that his "morality" is
simply "might makes right." The

Pollution Continues
WASHINGTON-Like its principle spokesman in the Senate,
Edmund S. Muskie (D-Me.), the
drive to conquer pollution has
experienced a meteoric rise to
It was predictable enough: All
the symptoms were there, from
over-exposure in the press to
zealots who
brought more emotion than
facts to their arguments. As a
result, the headlines and hearings
are all but over and many of the
pollution problems remain virtually untouched.
The increasing difficulty we
are experiencing in disposing of
solid wastes provides the most
evident example that pollution
has not subsided along with the
Americans now discard over
250 million tons of trash annually, better than 2,000 pounds for
every citizen, and the amount is
expected to double by 1980.
Our methods of coping with
this man-made mountain continue to be astonishingly insufficient. Nearly seven months ago I
reported that 94 percent of our
nation's open dumping systems
were inadequate. Unfortunately,
that figure is still accurate today.
Moreover, three-fourths of our
municipal incinerators are not
only inadequate, they are among
the worst air pollution offenders.
In some urban areas the problem is already critical. In New
York City, for example, trash
disposal (when you can get it at
all) costs twice what it does in
most other parts of the country.
And in the next two years the
nation's largest city will have
used up all its available land fill
space. What then? Today's technology dictates additional, expensive processing plants, and
that will raise disposal costs further.
Faced with 250 million tons of
trash, you would think we might
take a hard look at such items as
disposable cans and bottles.
Mother Earth needs roughly 100
years to decompose completely
the average can. As for throwaway bottles, they become permanent fixtures, forever embedded in a thousand forgotten land
nils at best, or obstructing roadways and stream beds at worst.
And yet, only one state—Oregon—has taken steps to discourage throw-away containers, and
the federal government has barely begun to study the subject
Recycling, not only of bottles
but of virtually all our trash,
may be one answer. In New
York City alone it is estimated
that $34 million worth of scrap
could be retrieved from the
municipal flow each year.
Another possibility is burning
trash at heats so intense that
virtually no pollution results,
and then utilizing the resulting
energy to produce, for example
Both of these approaches are
technologically feasible today.
Indeed, recycling has been going
on for better than 50 years, and
in fact nearly half of our country's supply of copper is recovered from scrap. Likewise, 30 percent of all aluminum, 20 percent
of all paper and 18 percent of all
However, because it is not always economically desirable to
recycle, government encouragement will likely be needed before this approach can provide a
significant contribution to reducing the trash mountain. As
for high-intensity burning, that
too is expensive.

All Proceeds go to the McGovern campaign
an eyewitness (in effect) to the
rape making "uncorroborated
testimony" useless for evidence.
A woman could appear at the
local precinct black and blue
with torn clothing and seminal
fluid in her vagina, and would
still be unable to get a conviction. The testimony of her body
was not enough. It could have
been just some passionate lovemaking, and she turning woman
scorned, had decided to ruin her
lovers name. And since 90% of
rapes occur without witnesses a
conviction was almost impossible. The 195th Session of the
New York State Legislature
amended article 130.15 striking
out "uncorroborated." But that
is causing some confusion in the
D.A.'s office. Mr. Downs knows
he needs less evidence to prove a
rape occured, but he doesn't
know how much less. That has
to be ruled on in the courts. But
ultimately, he must have a case
that can impress the jury.
Jury of ones peers is a very
hard thing to come by. Mr.
Downs explained that he doesn't
like to have men on the jury
because they say to themselves
"she asked for it." But women
are just as bad, saying "she could
have avoided it if she had...."
Accordingly the victim must
play the part in court. Sweet
little innocents have a better
chance in court than others. The
defendant's lawyer routinely
tries to make the victim look
promiscuous. "You led him
on," "You asked for it," " I t
wasn't rape," or "When you
were making love to the defendant" are often part of courtroom rhetoric. And woe to you
if you knew the defendant beforehand. Your case is lost. Mr.
Downs estimates that approximately 50% of the victims know
their rapists
Most cases, though, are not
broj^it to trial. Ninety percent
are handled through plea bargaining which routinely reduces
sentences dramatically. Because
of the difficulty of making a
good case for the victim and the
impossibility of getting a confession of rape from the defendant, most cases are not disposed of satisfactorily for the
victim. Some rapists, however,
will choose to hold off for a
trial, hoping that the jury will, as
usual, find him innocent of rape.
Many women, upon finding that
their case will be going to trial
try to withdraw it, in vain. The
prosecution will not withdraw it
unless there is evidence that the
charge is false, often making
women take lie detector tests.
They estimate 10-15% of the
rape charges are fabricated; most
jurys seem to feel that 90% are.
And this is often what keeps a
woman from reporting a rape;
she is roughly examined internally for seminul fluid, asked to
recount her experiences for the
precinct, the D.A.'s office and
the jury, al least (as well as an
explanation to her friends and
her husband), expecting to be
leered 'at, at each retelling, and
then find herself being told that
it wasn't rape al all. And with no
conviction, her rapist is back on
the streets.
Mr. Downs had no advice on
protecting oneself from these
unconvicted rapists. He simply
advised not to trust strange men.
He included in this category men

John Mayall to Play at Union
"Archimedia" at RPI
An open letter to the members
of the SUNYA community:
You are warmly invited to
participate in a conference/
festival ARCHIMEDIA which
will take place on the RPI campus 1215 October. The event
will be organized by the School
of Architecture, as a region wide
The primary purpose is to try
to foster better communication
of ideas across disciplines, across
professional boundaries, across
social boundaries, and to examine how various media can help.
The program will include:
Three major lectures; workshops led by diverse experts;
films, experiments, demonstrations, exhibits, a large Archiparty, a dance performance, an
event at Troy Music Hall...and
Among t h e distinguished
guests who have agreed to come
are Buckminster Fuller, Robert
Summer (psychologist, author of
" P e r s o n a l Space"), Charles
Jencks (historian, author of
"Architecture 2000") and Donald Appleyard (planner, author
of "View From the Road").
We intend this to be a conference of major stature. But major
conferences held ,on college campuses are often inaccessible to
the local communities (they read
about it in the papers). ARCHIMEDIA will have contributors of
national and international repute, but iU major participants
are intended to be the campus
and local community members.
In line with that, ARCHIMEDIA will be free (except for
the Fuller talk and the dance
performance), and will be open
to all. If you want more information about scheduling, places
to stay, whatever, please call me
at the School of Architecture,

The A ndromeda Strain is a
potentially exciting science fiction thriller based on the recent
bestseller of the same name. I
say potentially exciting because
the film falls short of its mark.
This is partially due to the fact
that the hook also did not live
up to its potential, but the major
fault lies with the director. The
film starts very slowly, and its
poor pacing makes the story
drag on. While aiming for
realism, a necesuary element of
the story, it never comes across
as fully as it should. Tint movie
is advertised as the story of

Isn't an artist an artist, regardless of sex? Lawrence Alloway,
in the booklet introducing the
new show to the SUNYA Art
Gallery, suggests that the reasoning behind the title "New
York Women Artists" lies in the
fact that more urtists who are
women are without galleries
than men who are artists, and
these thirteen women wish to
stand up and show their work
together as sisters in protest.
How about 13 "New York Men
Artists"? That is a strange title,
but one easily changed without
major shortcoming, however, is
that it lacks intensity, one
hardly ever feels that the world
is in danger of being wiped out,
although the point is stressed
over and over again. The basic
suspense of the movie hinges
upon this, and its failure means
that the movie lacks suspense
until its closing minutes.
The film is saved by excellent
sets and photography, and by
consistently good acting. As a
fictional scientific suspense film
it is filled witii computer banks,
video screens, high power electron microscopes, scientific talk,
and loads of other space age
gadgetry, and the imaginative
sets do an excellent job of
mixing realistic s c Ion U fie
equipment with the fictional
aspects of the story. The photography is excellent in terms of
the film's setting. The sharply
p h o t o g r u p h e d, sla rk desert
scenes at the beginning of the
film contrast well with the
brightly lit antiseptic laboratories of the Wildfire Station.
The fine visuals and technical
effects help the film ulong, and
there isn't one poorly acted
scene In the movie.
There are some minor political
and military aspects to The
Andromeda Strain, but don't

or otherwise, In the film; there
really aren't any, It Is a science

second thought to "New York
Artists" title which would not
seem strange at all even if it were
noticed that all the artists were
men. (In thut c s e the question
would become "why New York
artists?") All of which proves a
point to me, and that is we can
get so caught up in a title that
the title becomes the main object
of speculation and not the work
itself. These are thirteen talented
women. Tlv - got together and
put on an inhibition of their
work. Together. That's all. And
the title that they gave it reflects
this simple process.
One> gallery-goer commented
at Sunday's opening that the
exhibition was most "definitely
feminine." Is this an insult?
Some will act as if there had
been an affront made and defend, "You only say that because you know the artists are
women, and you're looking for
so-called feminine characteristics." Sound familiar? The defense presupposes that "definitely feminine" is a derogatory
, c o m m e n t . The "defender"
would seem to want to deny
women the characteristics that
made art by women distinct
from that of men and give their
art identity. In distinction I can
in no way see inequality or
On the other hand, is the
comment a positive one? Was
that visitor apt in implying that
feminine characteristics were
apparent in all the work? What
unfeminine characteristics?
Some would say the art of
women is naturalistic in agreement with the so-called practicality of women. Others feel
that women's art is physically
conditioned. "A third view interprets domestic techniques,
such as sewing and knotting, as
an index of femininity." (View
of Patsy Norvoll and Sarah
Oraney as stated by Alloway.)
The first two views may apply to
both men and women artists; I
don't feel that the realm of the
naturalistic and physically conditioned nor of the pructicul is
solely that of the woman. Men,
however, are not by condltlon-

ing in touch with domestic techniques. I c a n n o t imagine
executing Norvell's printed vinyl ruffles, so closely is it linked with
sewing techniques. (It also reminded me of too many dishes
done while staring out the gay
vinyl-curtained window over the
sink--an experience not familiar
to most men.) Paula Tavins'
"Snow Princess" of small bags
sewn to canvas and painted randomly with magna is another
e x a m p l e demonstrating the
domestic technique theory. And
Sarah Draney makes her slender
leaning branches comply with
the theory when she wraps
colored thread around them. She
is In a sense making them hers*
(not his) with this threadwrapping.
Is other work shown, then, not
"definitely feminine"? Yes, I
believe that it is not. My gallerygoer was generalizing, and I can
buy Norvell's and Draney's idea
of the feminine in art. "Hung
1-4" by Sharon Gilbert and
"White Moth" (which hovers in
space over the exhibition) by
Audrey Hemenway are two of
m y favorite works as well as the
aforementioned, but they do not
strike me as peculiarly feminine.
They don't fit my new, narrow
criteria. (Someone did comment,
however, that "Hung 1-4" reminded her of "dilapidated
diaphragms." If indeed this was
Gilbert's inspiration, a new criteria for feminine art may have
been suggested.)
The exhibition dominating the
lower half of the gallery is

Regardless of where the
"seniors" live, certain problems
are inevitable. The lack of kitchen facilities would be a serious
handicap since elderly people
generally enjoy preparing meals
and are not accustomed to institutional food. To the "seniors,"
stairs may be an inconvenience,
fire drills a harrowing experience, and the gentle vibes of
Aqualung after midnight something short of a lullaby
Randi Bader
In the academic, arena the enrollment of the aged in General
Studies courses may be more of
an idealistic than realistic goal.
Many older people have simply
not fulfilled the prerequisites for
college level work or have been
out of school for so many years
that they are out of touch with
modern theories and techniques.
Accordingly, they may feel intellectually intimidated by their
younger classmates.
Despite this pessimistic evaluation, I do believe that housing
senior citizens on campus could
result in a mutually beneficial
cultural exchange if we take care
to make some preparations. Of
primary importance is the consultation of the student body by
the administration before taking
any action on the program. Failure to do so might result in
feelings of resentment and hostility which could be easily generalized to the new residents.
Several alterations in the physical layout of facilities and in the
university's professional and
non-professional staff would be
necessary. Kitchen and residence
facilities must be investigated
and accomodated to meet the
needs of the senior citizens. An
expansion of our infirmary facilities would be advisable considering the precarious health
status of the-elderly. Lastly, if
we are truly interested in the
educational enrichment of our
new residents the initiation of
some more creative and less academically oriented courses
would be a positive indication.
In the final analysis, the degree
of success with which we could
combine the student and senior

-and this is what President Nixon calls a policy of "great
He tells us he is winding down the war - and then says that
unless North Vietnam accepts his terms, there will be no reduction of the bombing. (As a matter of fact, there will probably be a further escalation.)
"Those who have had a chance for four years and could not
produce peace, should not be given another chance," Nixon,
October 9, 1968.
On this October 9th, it will be four years. Can our conscience
stand the guilt of another four years of this kind of immorality
under Richard Nixon?
What are the justifications we are given for this wasting of
Vietnam and its people? To protect the people of South Vietnam from communism? To maintain democracy?
The regime we are defending suspends elections, muzzles the
press, jails and tortures its political opponents. The people we
are supposed to be saving are being systematically killed.
To the survivors, our fight to contain communism in Southeast
Asia (at the same time that we are making business deals with
communist countries) can only be viewed as hypocritical fanaticism, indistinguishable from that which we have sworn to
We, too, stand to gain from
such a proposal. While campus
life provides a pleasant respite
from the real world, a little
diversity around here surely
would not hurt. Sometimes I
almost forget that the very old,
and very young exist. With
senior citizens living on the
quads, campus life would be
more interesting, more varied,
and a little more real. Wouldn't
it be nice to talk with a spritely
septugenarian once in a while?
Maybe all those years on earth
has given him something valuable to share with us.
Finally, not too many senior
citizens would be able to make
such a move. The senior citizen
living here would be the one
with motivation, the one flexible
enough to try it. In a sense, they
would lie the cream of the crop.
.So I say, let's let 'em in.
The "gray lib" movement lives.
Okay. So much for the arguments against the proposal. To
consider the positive aspects of
this proposal, I must be serious,
because when you stop to think
about it, it is a fine idea

Americans will not always be able to ignore the consequences
of our actions. We will be asked: How could it happen? Where
were you? What did you do?
Even as the bombing and killing have been escalated, most

Indochina. The Nixon Administration is counting on the
The merits of the proposal
should be considered from two'
perspectives: that of the senior
citizen and that of us. In this
case, both groups would benefit.
For the senior citizen the advantages are so obvious that they
hardly seem worth mentioning;
The senior citizen, faced with a
limited future, can easily become bored, feel useless a n d '

Booters Play
Great But Lose
by Nathan Salant
Albany's bootmen went down
to their third defeat of the year,
versus Oneonta, but played one
of the greatest games an Albany
soccer team has ever played. The
game ended with a score of 4-0,
but the score was meaningless.

be number 2 in the state, to just

name of the game was to be

drives. It was the only way to
defeat a team like Oneonta, a
team consisting of 2 AilAmericans, a new player, Farouk
Karishi, who is one of the best
soccer players in America, a
team which has averaged 7 goals
a game, a team that has been
undefeated for the past two seasons of league play.
The game opened with what
was to be the dominant feature
of the game—Oneonta on offense, and Albany playing tough
defense. The Oneonta forwards
were constantly bringing the ball
up, only to be forced to pass.
mark Reda made his move and
opened a lead that he would
never lose.
Reda's time was 26 minutes

time was the 22nd fastest ever

As the game progressed, Oneonta became disorganized—they
were not used to a 0-0 score.
The pressure was really on them,
and things looked great for Albany, when our old nemisis
struck a questionable call by
ref. With 1:15 to go in trie first
half, an Oneonta attack was broken up via a sliding tackle by
Albany defenseman

accidentally touched the ball,
and the rets faked us out by not
calling a penalty (which was
actually a good call), however,
when he got up, his elbow

from the play whistled for u

hand ball must be intentional.
The resulting penalty kick was
put in to the net, as are most of
these kicks. The half ended with
the Danes trailing 1-0.
In the second half Albany
came out playing that same
dogged, tough defense, and the
score stayed at 1-0 until, with
less than 10 minutes to play,
Farouk Karishi scored on a fluk*
goal. At this point, after playing
such strong defense for so long,

Football—Albany vs. Niagara
The Danes, who are flying high after their opening:
victories over Stony Brook and RIT, travel to
Niagara tomorrow night.
Albany has shown a strong running attack out of
the wishbone-T, coming up with stars like McCoy
Allister and Marvin Perry. John Bertuzzi proved that
he can complete a pass, one a 78 yard touchdown
pass to Bob Baxer.
The defense has realty gelled. Co-captain Arnie
Wilt was outstanding against RIT assisting on 21
tackles. The defense has permitted just 17 points in
their last five games dating back to last year.
Niagara, 1-2 lost to Hudson Valley last week.
Returning from last years squad that Albany beat
are quarterback John Scotto, halfback Ed Renica,
fullback Ron Tuholsky and halfback Bob Ruth.
They have an explosvie offense.
The night game shouldn't bother the Dane offense
since the ball is hardly thrown but the defensive
secondary might have some problems seeing the ball
in the lights.
Prediction: Albany, 28; Niagara, 14.
Soccer Albany vs. Cortland
The booters are having problems scoring this year
as they were shutout for the second time this year.
They now stand 0-2 in SUNYAC play. Last year
Cortland beat Albany 3-1.
Prediction: Cortland, 3; Albany, 2.
To quote Coach Wingert, "We
have nothing to be ashamed of—
There's nothing the be ashamed
of when you hold u team of
Oneonta's quality to just four
goats- the fewest they've scored
this season. We played superbly.
There's nothing else to say except that this was one of the
greatest games Albany has ever
played." The team was in total
agreement with the coach, and
was very happy about their excellent showing. I cannot agree
Cross-Country—Albany vs. New Paltz
The harriers are enjoying one of their best seasons
ever following Wednesdays victories over Siena and
RPI. Vinnie Reda has shown that he is the big
runner that Albany can count on. Wednesday, he
won his first race of the year. New Paltz shouldn't
poise any great threat to the team.
Prediction—Another easy win for the Danes.
Pro 'Football -Giants vs. New Orleans
The Giants, who looked very good against a weak
Philadelphia team, go up against another easy
opponent in the New Orleans Saints. Last week, the
Saints rushed for a grand total of 7 yards in their
game against the 49ers. Archie Manning has been
very inconsistent.
New York's Ron Johnson has returned to top
shape, scoring four touchdowns. Norm Snead has
proved that he is the Giant's starting quarterback.
Prediction: Giants, 28; Saints, 17.
Pro Football -Jets vs. Miami
New York was upset last week by Houston. The
Jets defense has proved to be weak and they should
havetrouble handling the Dolphins.
Miami might just be the best team in Football.
They have already beat Minnesota and Kansas City.
Their running combo of Kick, Czonka and Morris
should have a field day against the Jet defense.
New York must win if they are to have any hope
for a championship this year.
Prediction: Miami, 31; Jets, 21.
This Saturday and Sunday

Baseball Season Ends; Playoffs Start Tomorrow
by Ken Arduino
The defending champion Pittsburgh Pirates take on the Cincinnati Reds this Saturday afternoon when the National League
playoffs begin. Oakland will take
on Detroit in the American
League playoffs also this Saturday.
Both the Reds and the Pirates
have explosive offenses while
their pitching has been suspect.
Both teams won their respective
divisions easily.
The Reds are sparked by
Johnny Bench and Joe Morgan.
Morgan was acquired in an off
season trade and just might be
the Reds M.V.P. He's a top
hitter and is one of the top base
stealers in baseball. Along with
Pete Rose and Bobby Tolan, he
gets on base for Bench.
Last year Bench had a horrible
year. But this year he has made
up for it by being among the top
homerun hitters and RBI men all
year. Tony Perez follows Bench
in the order forcing the opposition to pitch to him.
Cincinnati pitching has some
question marks. Gary Nolan, the
ace of his staff, has been injured
Cincinnati vs.
Detroit vs.
but is expected to start; Ineffectiveness is in doubt. Don
Gullet, Wayne Simpson and Jack
Billingham have all been erratic
in starting roles. Ross Grimsley
the other possible starter is in
only his first full season.
The bull pen is exceptional
with .all-starr Clay Carroll.
Carroll just set the major league
record for saves'with 36. Pedro
Borbon and Tom Hall back him
The Pirates', ace Steve Blass also
has an injury problem. He was
hit with a line drive last Saturday but is expected to start. Doc
Ellis, Nelson Briles, Bob Moose,
and Bruce Kison are five solid
starters. Dave Giusti and Ramon
Hernandez lead a good bullpen.
Roberto Clemente leads a phenomenal hitting attack which
sees .300 average hitters sitting
on the bench. Willie Stargell, AI
Oliver, Rich Hebner, and Manny
Sanguillen are all all-stars and
top hitters. Pittsburgh also has
the top bench in baseball with
three hundred hitters like Vic
Daviljllo and Richie Stennet.
These men though will see as
much uction as the starters.
On paper Oakland may have
the best team in baseball. Reggie
Jackson is a great hitter but has
been hampered by injuries as has
Dick Green. Sal Bando has not
had the year he is capable of
having. It*s been Mike Epstein
and Joe Rudi who have taker, up
the slack and kept Oakland in
front of Chicago. Matty Alou
and Don Mincher lead a solid
Vida Blue, a hdld out through
Max, has not pitched as well as
he did last year. Oakland cannot
rely on him again. The burden is
shifted to Jim Hunter, John
Odom and Ken Holtzman; these
men will have to do the job. The
bullpen is a good one with three
solid p i t c h e r s in
Knowles, Rollie Fingers, and
Bob Locker.
The Detroit Tigers battled to
the second to last day of the
season before winning the pennant. They have to be tired.
Mickey Lolich, Woody Fryman
and Joe Coleman are the starting
pitchers. They will have to do
the job as the second line pitching is rather weak. FrcrfScherman leads an average bullpen.
The offense is led by veteran
Al Kaline, who was benched by
injuries early in the year. But
during the stretch drive it was
Kaline who became the hottest
hitter and is now over 300. The
injury to Bill Freehand is a
tough blow to the Tigers but
they caught the Red Sox without him and Duke Sims and
Tom Haller filled in admirably.
Norm Cash and Willie Horton
will have to supply the power
and fielding magician Ed Brinkman will lead a tough defensive
If games were won on paper
Oakland would be the choice to
beat Detroit. But on the field it's
different and with momentum
with them, this writer picks Detroll in four. Pittsburgh will also
win, in three straight.

the league and was outstanding
with Team Canada in their series
against Russia. Rod Selling is one
of the most under ruled defense
man. The Rangers are set in goal
with Ed Giacomin and Gil Villmieure, two of the best.
Upfront New York possesses
the top scoring line in the NHL
in Ail-Stars Vic Hadfield, Jean
Ratelle and Rod Gilbert. Walter
Tkazuk ranks as a coming superstar. Barring injuries, New York
should go all the way.
The Montreal Canadians are a
young club but seem to be a
year away. Ken Dryden is a
super goal tender but Montreal
must find a backup for him. The
loss of J.C. Tremblay to the
WHA is going to hurt but Serge
Savard seems ready to take over
the leadership on the blue line
The Boston Bruins have been
hurt very badly by defections to
the rival WHA. Gerry Cheevers,
who lust year set a record for
consecutive games in a goal with
out a loss has jumped to Cleveland. This leaves only 36 yearold Ed Johnson as the lone
returning netminder. Also gone

Ruth said she loves little children, and would consider volunteering for the Day Care Center
in Pierce Hall downtown. The
great advantage senior citizens
have is their worldliness and

Unfortunately, one of the biggest objections Ruth has is the
tremendous change this would
be in her life. She soys the
elderly would think twice before
radically altering their lives al so
late a juncture. The changes involved scare Ruth, and she is
unsure if she would make the
decision to move that would
alter the way she lives; it is a
pattern deeply ingrained in her
by now.
The roadbloclu to success that
crop up in the proposal are
numerous and vital. Even if a
goodly number of senior citizens
would participate in the program, we must solve problems of
the location of the housing, and
the relationship between young
and old. The uptown campus
seems unrealistic; downtown is
more feasible, but questionable
at best. Additionally, SUNY officials must get more feedback
from the elderly. Ruth and her
peers merit a greater chance to
express their views on what
could be a momentousjsteptn the
alleviation of Albany's senior
citizen problem.
. . . forum
by Randi Bader
At a first glance, the housing
of senior citizens in our vacant
dormitories appears to be an ideal
solution to our complementary
economic problems. The elderly
suffer a critical shortage of adequate, moderate priced housing
while SUNYA is in a period of
financial difficulty, partially due
to the trend towards off campus
housing and the resulting decline
in revenue.
The merger of our academic
community with that of our
elders has possibilities beyond
the economic realm. Both
groups have much to learn
through the exchange of experiences and ideas. Our "seniors"
would have the opportunity to
become involved in educational
pursuits regardless of whether or
not they chose to do so on a
formal level. Campus organizations and activities furnish
another area for their recreation
and growth. Living on campus,
"seniors" could enjoy the convenience of the library, the art
gtllery and th« gymnasium tad
could attend the numerous eoncerts, films, and lectures provided for the enrichment and
enjoyment of the university
community. Similarly our organizations and Day Car* Center
can benefit from their experience.
However, along with the positive possibilities there are a few
features of our campus and some
differences between the two age
groups which might hamper the
success of the proposed living
experiment. On the most basic
level our dorm facilities may not
be functionally adequate for elderly people. While the uptown
campus is convenient it is isolated from the outside community. For senior citizens the
close proximity of shopping/and
houses of worship is not a convenience, but a necessity. A walk
from State Quad to Stuyvesant
Plaza can be more of an ordeal
than an outing for an older
person, particularly during the
colder seasons.
The suite system has its obvious limitations if it is to be used
for housing senior citizens. Occupancy would necessarily be
to u n m a r r i e d
"seniors." Even if the suites are
shared by "single" members of
the same sex I would seriously
question whether elderly people,
who generally spend a substantial amount of time in their
residences and rooms, would
find that this arrangement allows
for enough privacy.
Housing our "seniors" on the
downtown campus has its own
problems. While Alumni Quad is
conveniently located for contact
with and access to the outside
community, it would make it
necessary for our new residents
to commute uptown for classes
and activities, in a way, this
would defeat the purpose of
housing them on campus in the

doubted that seniors could eat
the spicy food served here, stating their option for blandness in
their diet.
The downtown campus solves
some of these problems, but
creates others. The atmosphere
is more refreshing and tranquil,
and the dorms are across the
street from the city of Albany—a
major factor. Seniors would not
have to put up with the uptown
tulmult but would be confronted instead with the big hassle of downtown living: the bus.
Last winter, I stood in -15 degrees cold for half an hour before the bus came. Our elderly
friends simply cannot take the
strenuous bus route day in and
day out, not to mention the
crush at 8:45 a.m. and the 2:00
bus in the afternoon. Ruth, a
veteran of the SUNY buses, says
many of her age group could not
stand the ordeal. If separate
transportation can be arranged,
this problem may be circumvented. Another possibility
would be to hold all their classes
in the downtown area.

may be wondering what a woman who'd remind you of your
grandmother was doing hitching
downtown in the middle of the
night after seeing the horror
movies at SUNYA. Our hitching
luck wasn't good at all, so I got
the chance to talk to this delightful lady for more than an
hour and found her to be extremely sharp, knowledgeable,
and wonderfully energetic. When
we finally got to Alumni Quad,
someone got his car and we
drove her home near the Palace
Theatre, in one of Albany *s
older sections. I resolved to see
her again.
I decided to choose to interview Ruth when I learned of the
proposal to house senior citizens
in vacant dorms at SUNYA to
relieve the loss of revenue due to
the s tu dent migration offcampus. Ruth and I had talked
about the University and how
she, as a senior citizen and a
member of the neighboring community, benefited from State.
She travels to the uptown campus about twice a week, and
hardly ever misses the weekend's
activities. Her favorite pastttmes
here are attending both the regular and experimental theatrical
productions at the Performing
Arts Center, sitting in on us
many lectures as she can, and
viewing the various movies presented here. Ruth takes great
advantage of the theatre and
movies at a cost her pocketbook
can afford. She also reads the
ASP regularly. On the surface,
Ruth seems like a good candidate for on campus housing. She
lives alone, is looking for low
cost housing in a nicer neighbor
hood, and certainly uses State to
the fullest.
lems arise. Senior citizens would
be on campus to take college
level courses in the College of
General Studies. Ruth finished
high school, but never made it to
college in the Depression years.
She has considered taking
courses several times in the past,
but would prefer auditing them
instead of competing for grades
in a pressure-packed atmosphere.
I would suspect this sentiment
to be widespread. At this point
in their lives, senior citizens may
value learning more than a 3.5
GPA and a piece of rag for a
As far as SUNYA goes, a major
decision will be the location of
the housing. Ruth is against living on the uptown campus. Her
reason—"isolation." Living in
"Stone City" could strand the
"seniors" on a slab of concrete,
out of reach of shopping facilities and the city of Albany,
where they could relate more to
the familiar people and places.
The noise and lifestyle of students could easily disturb the
elderly, says Ruth. She objected
also the the suite system, citing
the elderly's preference for privacy, and doubting seriously
whether six senior citizens, wilh
their complex needs, could get
along. Food would be another
problem. Although Ruth said
she would enjoy not having to

Brina Held Insensitive to Blacks
1 r •
To the Editor:
In relation to the article written by Bill Brina of
your staff concerning the Iiaac Haye's show, I
would like it to be known that this particular critic
is obnoxious himself.
From this particular critique of the ASP 10/3/72,
it is obvious that this writer is white. It is obvious
that he could not relate to the performance because
of his being white!!
In. the article, the critic mentioned about a
dancing girl. Well, for your information, this socalled dancing girl was Helen Washington; a young
lady whom Isaac Hayes took into custody who was
formally serving a sentence in prison. Her being on
stage was to let the people be aware that she was the
one so many had heard about; also her purpose was
to bring Isaac Hayes on stage.
The following statement that this writer wrote is
totally untrue: "That kind of a buildup places an
enormous strain on the performer to deliver excitement on an energy level of the introduction, and
Isaac just couldn't do it". When Isaac Hayes spoke
that night, his first words, the field house was quiet.
Isaac Hayes was like a god with command over his
Another quote which is untrue: "The Black
Moses, I'm afraid he is not, and the ponderous
manner in which he now performs his own music is
fast transforming what was once a considerable
talent into a Black Sominex." For anyone to sell as
many albums as Mr. Hayes did and to write the
musical score for the film Shaft, and to win a
Grammy award is a great accomplishment. For
anyone to make a statement like Brina did is
nothing but an ASS!! The only way Isaac Hayes
could become a "Black Sominex" is if POOR critics
like you are kept on the staff of this or any
newspaper Since you, Brina, couldn't relate to the
performance of Isaac Hayes, you should have stated
it in your article, instead of giving a critique which
is totally untrue!!

Ed. Note: If any of the brothers and sisters
would like to try their hand at a review, give me a
call at the office. Our only interested Black reviewer
was out of town for the Hayes concert (as a matter
of fact, he caught the show in Syracuse the

Although the turnout was considerably larger than expected,
students were only rhoderately
enthusiastic as they welcomed
Jane Fonda to the Albany campus last night. The crowd of
1200 which greeted the famed
gave their polite attention and
silent support; but for n few
outbursts, there was little excitement in the gym. It was a far cry
from the day when an overflowing crowd shook the walls
of the gym in support of Bill
Fonda, touring as part of the
Indochina Peace Campaign with
Tom Hayden, folksinger Holly
Neer, and ex-POW George Snith,
drew on her own experiences as
an actress and also on her recent
visit to Vietnam in an attempt to
make the war once again a personal issue. Although the
speeches seemed rhetorical and
too familiar to some, most of
the audience was impressed by
the sincerity and concern with
which Fonda and the others
The evening's activities began
as Holly Neer, a Los Angelesbased folksinger who accom
panied Fonda to North Vietnam,
interspersed anti-war songs with
her account of the trip. She
spoke of the deep-rooted culture
of the Vietnamese people, and
her refrain, "Hang in there a
little bit longer," dedicated to
the women
of Vietnam, also
seemed a plea to the audience to
continue anti-war activities.
Neer was followed by ex-POW
George Smith, who detailed the
fair treatment he received in the
POW camps. Captured in 1963,
Smith advocated that the North
Vietnamese policy on prisoners
was the same then as it is now:
"The prisoners will be kept until
the end of the war; when the
war ends they will be released."
He supported the Seven-Point
Peace Plan, and asked the audience to help him convince "the
ones that don't believe" of the
truth about the war.
While Smith was an interesting
speaker, most of the eyes in the
gym were on Fonda, who
throughout the speech sat on the
podium, nervously eyeing the
crowd. Greeted by cheers as she
rose to the rostrum, the pretty
actress, dressed in bluejeans and
an Indian shirt, began with the
Nixon quote much-used by
McGovern supporters, "Anyone
who is given four years chance
and couldn't end the war
shouldn't be given another
chance." Confronting the audience with the staggering figures
of those killed, wounded or
made homeless in Vietnam in
the last four years, she defended
her visit to North Vietnam,
claiming that she was denied
entrance to South Vietnam and
was only assuming her responsibility to gel at the truth. Yielding to Hayden, she noted the
absurdity in the fact that "You
can get an academy award for a
false role in a movie but are
indicted for treason if you speak
your views as an American citizen." The crowd's applause signalled agreement.
Fonda went on to criticize
Vietnamization ("it assumes a
cynical view of the American
people... that as long as yellow
people are the ones killed we
won't care") and the continued
bombing of North Vietnam,
which maims those "most vulnerable—women, children, and
the aged."
Describing the first thirty-two
years of her life as "wasted,"
Fonda said that she too was
"apathetic" and "cynical." But
she insisted that if we let things
go on as they are now, "We will
have lost the ability to think for
ourselves. We may be doomed to
skim the surface of our lives for
the rest of our lives...If we cannot feel for the Vietnamese people how can we feel for anybody?"
The Peace Campaign group,
though blasting Nixon, came
short of endorsing McGovern,
claiming that they wanted to
remain independent of politics
and personalities. But Hayden
did stress during questioning,
that McGovern's position is the
one that is generally accepted,
and that his plan for ending the
war is the only one. He said he
was sorry about the fact that a
lot of people are talking about
voting for McGovern but few are
working for him. But this inaction, judging from the evening's responses, should not
seem unusual. If it wasn't for the
glamour of Jane Fonda (and the
added surprise attraction of Don
Sutherland in the audience), it is
q u e s t i o n a b l e whether there
would have been much student
response at all.

Antiwar actress Jane Fonda
said Monday that during her
tour of North Vietnam she saw
women whose bodies were covered with pellets from U.S. antipersonnel bombs, and children
who lost arms and legs from
picking up "bomblets" dropped
from American planes,

The United States "has dropped four million tons of bombs
on Indochina in the last four
years--which is twice the total
tons of bombs the United States
dropped all over the world during World War II," she said,
quoting Defense Department statistics.
"The equivalent of Hiroshima
is rained on those people every
five days," she declared.
Ms. Fonda said before she became active in the antiwar movement she refused to believe the

He said in a speech before
1,500 students at Siena College
in nearby Loudonville that "the
administration tells us the war is
winding down when, in fact, it's
never been higher, more devastating, more destructive."
Hayden said he and Ms. Fonda
are part of a group known as the
I n d o c h i n a Peace Campaign,
which he said aims at "exposing
clearly the contradiction between what the administration
says und what's really happening "
Mb. Fonda called on the audience at Emma Willard to bring
pressure on newspaper editors to
tell "what really is going on in
Vietnam." She said the truth
about the war "is being kept
from us—the government is lying
and deceiving its own people."
As she concluded her talk at
the private girls' high school
here, she said "it's nice to come

I acted for the first time in my
life. It's nice to do something
