Editorial Note:
On thit page it a collection of four memorandaJwhich have been
of motor] importance in Psychology Professor Caroline Waterman's
struggle to receive tenure.
The ftnt memo we have published it a "tetter" of transmittal" or
departmental recommendation, which was written by Psychology
Department Chairman Richard Teevan and present*' his reasons for
recommending that Waterman be deniea tenure. The letter
is addressed to Melvin 1. Bert, Associate- Dean for Behavioral and
Social Sciences, who must now matte nts own recommendation and
pass the case on to the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
Apparently, Bers did not feel 'the letter of transmittal contained
enough information for him to make a decision, so he asked Teevan
to elaborate. This resulted in Teevan's writing a supplementary
memo which is reproduced below in full.
Dr. Waterman felt compelled to respond to both the original and
supplementary departmental recommendations, so she wrote Bers
two memos disputing Teevam findings recommending that tenure be
denied. Both of those memos are reprinted here.
The ASP has chosen to print this private correspondence because it
feels that students have a right to know what their employees (the
administration and faculty) are doing in cases where stuaent interest
are directly at stake. We feel that this is one of those cases. The
decision-makers should be held accountable for their actions.
Below is the Departmental Recommendation,
or "letter of
transmittal" written by Richard C. Teevan, Chairman of the
Psychology Department and sent to Melvin Bers, Associate Dean of
the Division of Social and Behaviorial Sciences on October 16th.
The recommendation came out of Teevan's discussions with
various faculty members in the Psychology Department as welt as
the faculty meetings where it was recommended not to give
Waterman tenure by a 9 to 8 vote.
I will go down the list of evaluative criteria, commenting on each:
a. Mastery of subject matter: I have discussed this matter with
members of the department and based on their opinions and my
own, my rating of Dr. Waterman is about average for a person of her
age and experience.
b. Effectiveness in teaching: I have enclosed a summary of ratings
from students which Dr. Waterman has received. In my experience
with this form, these ratings are excellent. 1 would rate Dr.
Waterman as one of the best undergraduate teachers in the
c. Ability as a scholar: Dr. Waterman has six published articles,
with one further article submitted to a journal. She hus had her
doctorate for approximately five years so that this averages out to a
little more than one article a year. I believe this to be a below
average production for a tenured member of a good department at
the University level. I believe Dr. Waterman to be below average in
the area of ability as a scholar. I will mention this area again under
the category of continuing growth.
d. Effectiveness in University service: In terms of departmental
service I would rate Dr. Waterman as above average. She is the
chairperson of our Undergraduate Curriculum Committee, the
advisor to Cathexis (an undergraduate Psychology-Sociology Club),
and the advisor to Psi Chi. In terms of service at above the
departmental level, I would rate her as below average. So far as I
know, she has served on no committees above the department level.
e. Continuing growth: This is a very difficult thing to assess. In my
own mind, I tend to look at the productivity of a person and try to
figure out whether or not he or she is visible in the profession or has
a good probability of becoming so with a reasonable period. This
does not take away from the subjectivity of the judgement, but it
helps me in coming to some kind of conclusion. Using this kind of
criterion, it is my judgment that Dr. Waterman will not become
visible is a reasonable time. In other words, it is my judgment that
Dr, Waterman's scholarship is not up to par for a tenure position at a
University Center and that this will probably not change. In terms of
teaching and departmental citizenship, she is already more than
Using all of the above as criteria, and taking into account the votes
of the faculty of the Psychology Department, it is my recommendation that Dr. Caroline Waterman not be granted a promotion to
associate professor or a continuing appointment at this University.
The "Waterman Papers
some objective measure to compare the knowledge of my students to that of students who
have taken the same courses
with other professors.
b. Effectiveness in teaching:
While I would not be expected
to take issue with Dr, Teevan's
judgment that I am "one of the
best undergraduate teachers in
the department," I do wish to
take issue with it on two
1. The data shows his comment to be an understatement.
My teaching evaluations have
consistently been the highest in
the department even though I
often teach a required course,
Statistics. (YoU can validate this
by asking to see the evaluations
of my colleagues.) Furthermore,
last year I was one of the finalists for the Outstanding Teacher
Award, scoring higher on the
criteria than the people who
were nominated by m y department. (I don't know how I was
nominated, but it was not by the
Psychology Department).
2. His remark is open to the
interpretation that I am not
highly competent at graduate
level teaching. Unfortunately, I
have never taught a graduate
course despite my numerous re
quests to do so.
c. Ability as a scholar Or.
Teevan's figure of seven arucles
does not include my six convention papers which contribute to
what he refers to as "visibility"
or the three manuscripts in preparation which will be submitted
by the end of January.
I seriously question the validity of this paper-counting approach to the assessment of
ability us a scholar. It is important to note that nowhere in Dr.
Teevan's discussion of this criterion is there mention of the
quality of my research. You
/ am releasing these memos to
the press with the full under
standing that some people who
nerve on the appeal committees
may view this action as inappropriate. I am doing this be
cause I think it is time thut the
students who are affected by
personnel decisions got u chance
to see how these decisions are
made. / hope that (his sets a
precedent at this university for
full public disclosure. The people, who make decisions here
should not be permitted to con
tinue operating in secrecy. They
should be held publicly account
able for their actions.

Waterman Responds to Teevan
Below is a response to Teevan's
letter of transmittal which Dr.
Waterman wrote on October
31st. In this response she disputes many of the findinns of
Teevan's recommendation, particularly in regard to mastery of
subject matter.
a. Mastery of Subject; Dr.
Teevan's comments on this leave
the following questions unanswered:
(]) With whom did he discuss
this issue?
(ii) How were these individuals
(3) On the basis of what evidence did they arrive ut their
conclusions? (It should be noted
that none of my colleagues hus
ever attended one of my dulses
and few of my senior colleagues
have hud conversations with me
uhout suhject matter.)
(4) What is the "average" for
my "ago und experience"?
I d uppreciute it if the Faculty
Peroonnd Committee und the
University Council on Promotions and Continuing Appointments would attempt to get the
answers to these questions so
thut they mn muke an informed
evaluation of Or. Teevan's assertion. Tho fact that the answers
to these questions wore not
•pacified in the letter of ' makes it impossible for
me to respond to the evidence
on which the designation of
"averuge" was hased.
The avuiluble evidence indicates thut I have excellent
mastery of the suhject matter.
Mastery of suhject matter is one
of the the vuriuhles that appear
on the Psychology Department
teacher evaluation forms which
you have in my file. It's an insult
to the students to imply thai I
can gel those evaluations with
only "averuge" mastery. Furtherm ore, if you interview students who huve taken a given
course of mine during different
semesters, you will find thut I
huve continued to revise my
reuding lisU und lectures in light
of new developments in the
I understand thu I you have
several letters on file from
people who ure highly know
ledgeuble ubout my work which
substuntiute my claim of excellent mastery.
I'd like to point out that while
mustery of the field is a necos
sary quality of an effective
teacher, it is the ability to
generate mastery on the part of
the students that is of paru
mounl importance. I would
welcome the opportunity to
huve the review committees use
have outside letters pertaining to
this, and you can see that my.
articles appear in highly inspected journals with rigorous
refereeing standards and sizeable
rejection rates. One of my articles was also reprinted in a
book which is used as a text.
While I am opposed to the
numbers game, I fee] that if
number of publications is the
criterion that Dr. Teevan is
using, he at least ought to apply
it in a consistent manner. Last
year he recommended someone
for * tenure who had approximately half the number of publications that I have. (I am not
attempting to imply that this
person should have been denied
tenure. On the contrary, I think
he is a strong asset to the department.)
d. Effectiveness in university
service: Dr. Teevan's statement
regarding this criterion is descriptively accurate. However, I'd
like to point out that I have
volunteered to work on committees above the department
level but have never been asked
to serve. I have served in an
advisory capacity to student
groups outside the Psychology
I am curious us to why my
uvailabihty to students including
during most lunch hours and
some evenings and weekends is
not viewed as u university service. The purpose of this university is to serve the needs of
e. Continued growth: Please
note that not a single piece of
evidence is cited by Dr. Teevan
to substantiate this admittedly
subjective judgment regarding
this criterion. The only objective
basis on which we can attempt
to predict future growth is past
and present performance which I
have already discussed.
Waterman Responds Again
Waterman felt compelled to
write a response to Teevan's
supplementary tetter of transmittal (which is reproduced below). The memo printed here
was written by Dr. Waterman on
November 5th, and disputes
many of the findings in Teevan's
supplementary letter as well as
his original transmittal letter.
The basis on which the five
faculty members were selected
by Dr. Teevan is unclear. Since
they are not identified, it is
impossible to assess their com
petence to evaluate my research
The fact that someone's in-
ability to "imagine" me "engaging in solid interplay" can seriously be offered as a reason for
denying me tenure is a strong
indictment of the whole tenuregranting system. Furthermore, it
substantiates my claim that I
have not been evaluated on the
basis of the five criteria.
No evidence is cited to support
the allegation that my research
"reflects little originality and a
rather trite use of theory." This
judgment was obviously not
shared by journal editors such as
Daniel PCatz and Boyd McCandless who accepted my articles for
publication in journals with very
high reviewing standards. The
only study to which specific
reference was made is characterized by the second faculty member as showing "limited imagination." This'study was nominated
by some faculty members at
Buffalo for a Creative Talent
Award (an award sponsored by
American Institutes for Research, was reprinted in a book
of readings edited by Anthony
Doob and Dennis Regan, and
was described by Chester Insko
as representing "an interesting
contribution toward bridging the
gap between two apparently dissimilar research areas" which
should "make a contribution
both to the field and to the
journal" (see enclosed letter).
Furthermore, I don't sec how
anyone who has looked at my
vita can arrive at the conclusion
that I have only produced "two
pieces of work." (Dr. Teevan
has acknowledged seven).
I notice that I've been demoted from "one of the best
undergraduate teachers in the
department" to a "good undergraduate teacher." The statement that a "fiasco" would ensue if I were to teach "a solid
group of graduate students" is
devoid of empirical support
since I haven't taught a graduate
course. The assertion is one
more example of the way in
which some people have substituted their personal p*eju<bjfments for an objective assessment of my past performance.
The available data on my teaching is clearly inconsistent with
what the uuthor of that statement "would envision."
I hope that the large amount
of attention being focused on
the criteria of research and continuing growth does not cause
people to lose sight of the importance of quality under
graduate teaching.

He's a forensic pathologist-^
person with degrees in both law
and medicine. He's Research
Professor of Law and Director
Institute of Forensic Sciences, at
Duquesne University in Pittsburgh; und a Clinical Assistant
Professor of Pathology at the
University of Pittsburgh Medical
School. He's also a recent past
president of both the American
Academy of Forensic Sciences
and of the American College of
Legal Medicine. Besides that,
he's the Coroner of Allegheny
County (Pittsburgh).
But when the discussion turns
to the charges by Wecht of
diseripaneies in the Warren Commission Report on the assassination of President John Kennedy, persistent silence is the
official response.
This August, Wecht became
the second non-governmental
medical expert allowed to view
the items from the autopsy of
President Kennedy stored at the
National Archives in Washington.
In a recent interview, Wecht
said he questioned the Warren
Commission's findings even before his two days of research at
the Archives. But when he came
out his conclusion was that "the
Warren Commission Report is
totally untenable, unacceptable
and absolutely incorrect as far as
its findings on Lee Harvey Oswald and the single assassin
The First Critic
The Kennedy family turned
over numerous items from the
autopsy to the Archives in October, 1966, with the stipulation
that none of the material be
released to the public during the
lifetime of Kennedy family
members, and that after five
years "recognized experts in
pathology or related sciences"
be allowed to view them.
The first "expert" granted per
mission to view the items was
Dr. John Lattimer of New York.
Lattimer is a urologist-a kidney
and bladder specialist-whose
only qualification seems to have
been that he has been a consistent defender of the Commission's findings. Lattimer spent
just three hours in the Archives
last January and immediately
afterwards released his conclusion that the autopsy items supported the Warren Commission's
Wecht, then was the first critic
of the Warren Commission Report to be allowed entrance, and
this only after he spent nearly a
year attempting to get permission from Burke Marshall, a law
professor at Yale Law School
who acts as an official representative for the Kennedy family.
Wecht says he probably
wouldn't have gotten permission
at all if Marshall hadn't been
prodded by others interested in
the autopsy items.
When Wecht finally did make
it to the Archives, on August 2.'i
and 24, he said he discovered a
number of autopsy items were
missingi- most
notably the preserved brain of
the President and a number of
microscopic slides of tissues removed from the bullet wounds.
So far, no one has explained the
disappearances. But what remained at the Archives was
enough for Wecht to confirm his
In our interview, Wecht recreated the scene at Deaiey Plaza
and Parkland Hospital in Dallas
and at the Bethesda Naval Hospital, where the autopsy was
performed the evening of the
In Dealy Plaza, the President's
car "had just made a right hand

President Kennedy clutched his

Parkland Hospital nearly 30
minutes later, he was already

were given the task, only one of
whom had experience with forensic pathology. "It was essentially a military undertaking. Admirals, generals, FBI and Secret
Service personnel were present
in the room to oversee the
autopsy. The doctors acted as
military subordinates."
According to records made at
Parkland Hospital, Wecht said,
d o c t o r s t h e r e no ted two
wounds: one, a huge gaping
hole, on the right side of Kennedy's head, and the other a
round circular hole in the middle
front of his throat.
Doctors performing the
autopsy in Washington, however,
noted three wounds: the huge
gaping hole in his head, a smaller
hole in the upper back of his
head, and a hole in his back six
inches below shoulder level. This
latter wound was puzzling because no exit wound was found
for it, yet the bullet was not in
the body.
"Under Texas law the autopsy
would have been performed in
Dallas,"said Wecht. "But there
was much confusion, a lot of
shouting and ordering goinj on,
und eventually through ruse and
other tactics the body was taken
out a private door and put
aboard Air Force One for the
flight to Washington."
"They concluded," said Wecht,
"that the bullet which had entered his back fell out of the same
hole onto a stretcher when doetors at Parkland administered
pressure to the President's chest
to revive his heart." and, indeed,
a bullet had been found on a
stretcher by a janitor at Parkland
during the early evening of the

been any cause for confusion
Unfortunately, instead of the
time lapse being used to gel the
most qualified pathologists for
the autopsy, the situation got
Inconsistencies Found
Wecht said three staff doctors
The wound in the throat was
not even examined at Parkland
because doctors had, in their
haste, used the bullet hole to
insert a breathing device into the
President's throat. Thus, the Bethesda physicians noted only
"an incision" in their report.
"No one there had enough for-
ensic experience to realize the
incision was actually a bullet
wound," said Wecht.
And so, Wecht went on, the
doctors at Bethesda released the
body for burial and gave their
results: Kennedy had been hit
twice, once in the back (the
bullet of which fell out later
from the same hole), and once in
the head (the bullet of which
fragmented). Nothing was said
about the smaller wound on the
head; and, of course, nothing
was said about the throat
Wecht said the embarassing
part of the autopsy came the
next day-after the body was
already gone--when the doctors
learned for the first time that
there had also been a wound in
the throat. Rather than admit
their mistake and re-examine the
body, Wecht said the doctors
made a "despicable" choice and
"chose to be quiet about it."
The easiest way out was to
match up the wound six inches
below the shoulders in his back
and the wound in his throat.
"But you couldn't very well
have a bullet entering six inches
below the neck, then make a
sudden U-turn and exit out the
throat," said Wecht. "So they
simply altered the sketches that
had pinpointed the wounds I've
seen the first sketches made of
the wounds and they showed a
wound six inches below the
shoulders. I've also seen the
holes in Kennedy's shirt and
jacket and everything matches
up. But in their testimony for
the Warren Commission the doctors simply moved the hole up

Student Unrest At UBiSouthernDraff
NEW ORLEANS- The head of
Sou thern University in New
Orleans resigned Thursday,
bringing in a peaceful end to the
nine-day occupation of the
college's administration building
by student militants.
Vice President
Bmmett Bashful said he was
quitting after 14 years as head of
SUNO in order to avoid a showdown confrontation between
students and police "that might
result in loss of lives."
His action resulted from feverish behing-the-scenes negotiations. It was announced to the
students and hour and a half
after the deadline in Gov. Edwin
Edwards' ultimatum had passed.
The governor had set 1 p.m. as
the deadline for students to
leave the building or be evicted
'by whatever means necessary.1'
Police had been placed on
ilert, but no uniformed officers
.•vvr showed near the campus.
Bash fill's resignation brought a
roar of applause and shouts of
"right on!" from the some 300
students who had gathered outside the building.
Soon afterward, the some 150
students barricaded inside the
building marched out, holding
clenched fists aloft in the black
power salute.
Concessions won from Gov.
Edwards included academic
"amnesty"for students involved
in the uprising here and at the
9,000-student main campus in
Baton Rouge.
Student spokesmen insisted
that though the administration
building had been freed, class
room boycott of Southern
would continue until other demands are met.
The main demand of the
students—the creation of new
executive councils under student
control—was not met.
Concessions won were, in addition to amnesty, city bus service
along a boulevard leading to the
SUNO campus, authority for a
student audit of SUNO financial
books and some campus medical
services for the 2,750 students.
BUFFALO AP - A homemade
bomb exploded early Wednesday
outside a State University at
Buffalo building housing a controversial project that was the
subject of campus demonstrations three years ago.
A second bomb, made from a
10-inch-long pipe and wired In a
timing device, was found near
the building. It was removed by
the police bomb squad for examination
No one was reported injured in
Ihe bomb blast, which caused
minimal damage to the cinder
block building.
The former Themis Project in
Sherman Hall, originally was
funded by the U.S. Navy to
determine the effects of water
pressure on divers.
The project drew the wrath of
antiwar demonstrators in the
1968-69 school year, Two construction shanties at the site of
the project were burned in protests.
Themis now is a National
Heart and Lung Institute program known as the Environmental Physiology Laboratory.
Police said a telephone call to
the campus newspaper, 10 minutes before the bomb exploded,
warned that "Themis will go up
in smoke."
The University's student paper
Spectrum received a letter yesterday from a revolutionary
group admitting responsibility
for the bombing. In the letter
the group said that1'in view of
Richard Nixon's election as
chanceior to the 4th reich they
will destroy this symbol of
"Amerikan destruction " It went
on the say, "
we do this
amidst much speculation of a
settlement in Vietnam, a settlement America never had a right
to he part of."

1000% For Eagleton
The Eagleton case really began
with a question, put, by the
Missouri senator's account, by
F r a n k Mankiewicz, a top
McGovern aide: "Tom, do you
have any skeletons raiding
around in your closet?"
Eaglelon said no, and hours
later, on July 13, he was duly
nominated lo run for vice presidenl with McGovern.
'McGovern remained a candidate
in search of a theme that would
grab the American voter.
He never found it.'

McGovern had of necessity put
together his own organization in
the primaries, usually running
head on into the opposition of
the party establishment.
That, too, left its scars,
notably in Chicago, whose
Mayor Richard J. Daley was
denied a seat in the convention
t h a i nominated McGovern.
While Daley came around, some
in his organization never appeared to be wholeheartedly behind McGovern.
There were the highly publicized defections of Democrats

To find a psychology professor
who docs more than mouth a

here at SUNY Albany. It is even
more difficult, to keep one here
So we really shouldn't be t o o
surprised to find out that Harold
Miller is getting the axe
What you learn from Harold is

achievement tests or objective
type tests that are favored h\
most professors I have encoun
tered. Y o u are confronted w i t h
real life questions, not with
hypothetical abstractions I bat
are most frequently found in
college classrooms An example
of this would be one meeting ol
our social psychology sessions
Harold is personally approach
able which again is rare in most
professors, l i e is easy to talk
w i t h , and his conversations are
nol straight out of that textbook
we all have had plenty of. He is
one professor that you can gel
to know and who knows about
you as a person, not simply a
student number
And Harold Miller is being
fired this May fur some of the
above reasons and many unmen
1 limed, equally unfair and in
valid We are losing more when
Harold leaves than he is We are
losing a person in the psyeholo
gy department, not just a proles help is needed to

Prestige Over
To the Editor
I'm a senior, about to graduate
from here with a B.A. in psycho
logy I f someone asked me w h o
to lake for a course in psych,
who really wanted t o get something from i t , I'd say Dr.
Caroline Waterman. I have taken
her for three courses, to keep
my en th usiasm for in y major
going, and I have a really good
background in the field as a
result. She is the most inspiring
teacher and one o f the most
genuinely concerned with teach
ing undergraduates. In a typical
Waterman class y o u ' l l get t o
know the people around y o u
and interest in class discussions.
Her lectures demonstrate a "high
level " o f mastery over the subject
mailer and a true love for the
field. She is able t o draw the
class together in a totally new
ex per
ience. Outside of the classroom
she is always approachable and
will spend a great deal o f her
time helping students Her view
on education in unique and
displays her sincerity She feels
that a teacher must meet up to
the student's standards or resign,
and the students must give as
much hack in the classroom, or
not take the course In each of
the three courses I've taken I've
had to work my
o f f , all the
lime inspired by one of my first
academic challenges

thai we, the people who pay lot

hiring professors I'm leaving this
place in May and I'm really glad
I don't have to witness the fur
ther self destruction o f a urn
versity which values prestige over
I t is n o t necessary t o mention
the truly lousy teachers at this
school w h o have gotten tenure,
even recently, in the 'budget
squeeze.' But i t is worth mentioning a few names of wellloved and very dedicated, or at
least very controversial, teachers
who have been denyed tenure
over our shouts o f protest- Mary
K add an I , Louis
F. Ismay,
Gascoyne, Gerry Wagner {rem
ember him?) the list is too long.
Writing to Dean Hunsberger
will relieve some o f your anxieties, but will n o t get any n
suits except a basic form letter
saying something like 'Mow nice
of you t o write. We realize thai
Professor So-and-so is well-loved
by many students, but unfortunately he/she has no academic
standing (ie: doctorate and/or a
certain number o f publications)
We realize that he/she is con
side red among the best, most
concerned teachers we have, b u l
concern for student's welfare is
not important, and besides
(herein often follows a list of
unqualifieaCons which may be
so unlike the professor that y o u
cannot believe y o u are talking
about the same person).'
1 am not saying that perhaps
Wagner, Waterman, etc., etc., are
wonderful teachers and deserve
tenure; I am saying that, the
student voice is totally disorganized and too weak on this
campus. University policy has
blatantly ignored us on questions like lack of art department
funds especially as compared to
the 'hard* science departments;
questions about health service
policy; questions of tenure; I'm
sure you have as many complaints as I do.
With the easy excuses of
'budget squeeze' or 'lack of qualifications,' Dean Hunsberger is
going to lop off the heads of
many more teachers this year let
alone the next and the next until
this school consists of nothing
but a handfull of 'internationally
known' teachers, thousands of
'hard' science majors, and thousands o f pillars.
It is time we took
action. N o one w i t h authority is
going t o listen to us unless we
grab them by their throats. I am
seriously proposing a t u i t i o n and
board payment strike f o r the
spring semester 1973, to be observed by every student who has
ever felt any teacher in this
school has been unjustly fired or
has had t o fight too hard t o
prove him/herself worthy o f
tenure against inestimable odds.
Any studenl w h o feels that the
university overlooked us on any
policy decision should join in
this strike Mohawk tower, parking situations, mandatory dinner
plans in the dorms, the huge
houkhnes, the l a d that we have
finals until December 23, etc.,
e i c , etc., etc..
Think o f your gripes We must
unite. Universities are for students and teachers- we should
all be partaking in an education.
h i e ra rchy

makers exists because of our
huge size, not because o f their

It is obvious that the students,
and sometimes, even faculty
members, have no say in which
teachers are fired and who
receives tenure. The ability of
the' 'powers that be' to override
student decisions is so obvious
that the lack o f student protest

I had a very frustrating experience recently when I attempted
to acquire funds to run a spectator bus to the Albany football
game Saturday, November II at
Pittsburgh. This year, despite a
pitiful turnout on the part of
Albany students, the team has so
far gone undefeated and the
game at Pittsburgh is the
season's last. I personally know
of several students anxious to
see the game but cannot afford

It would be a gross exaggeration and indeed lolly on my
part to say that the Kosher
Kitchen is the sole cause for a
rejuvenation of Jewish identity
at SUNYA. However, I think
that it is fair to say that, coupled
with the other organizations and
activities, the Kosher Kitchen
cannot be denied as a positive
force in this direction We are
witnessing an amazing phenomenon.

To the Editor:
Being a cashier for nearly six
years, in at least ten different
places, I have realized how cashiers are one of the most oppressed groups of unskilled
workers. In a grocery store, for
instance, cashiers are paid less
money than all other unskilled
workers such as stock boys and
office help. A guy can apply for
work as a stock clerk and start
off with $2.00 to $2.50 an hour.
A girl who is unskilled has little
choice. She would never be hired
for stock work or she has to be a
cashier and make only $1.85 to
$2.00 an hour, 'litis isn't really fair.
Cashiers are extremely important Lo a store's reputation
because they have direct contact
with t h e customers. The
impression the customer gets at
the checkout counter is his last
impression as he leaves the store.
A good cashier knows this and
does her best to be friendly and
courteous, although this is often
No matter what goes wrong,
most customers bring their complaints to the cashier. Cashiers
an- the scapegoats they get all
the grief. Just the other day, a
customer of mine discovered
that some of the plums she
purchased were rotten. Who did
she yell at? ME. What could I do
about it? I could tell her that she
would be given a refund and she
may quiet down, but I have to
hear her remark, 'and I thought
this was supposed to be a GOOD
Customers are what keeps a
store going, and it is the cashiers
that have the most contact with
them. All the cashier training
manuals will say this and emphasize how important it is for a
cashier to be careful with the
thousands of dollars that pass
through her hands every day. If
a cashier makes a mistake when
she gives out change and her
register is short, she gets yelled
al and is told that she has cost the
store money. If it happens too
often, she is fired. If a stock boy
makes an error in stocking the
shelves, he just has to do it over
again. Nothing is lost. He is
allowed to make mistakes. A cashier's job is much more tedious
and errors are serious. Why then,
are cashiers paid less than anyone else? And why do they have
so little status'.'

turned to Student Association
for help and asked if there was
any channel through which
money could be alio ted. For all
the response I got il seemed my
suggestion was totally absurd.
Unless I represented an organizer! group with a written constitution and submitted a formal
request to IK- reviewed before
Central Council... Next I called
WSUA and the person there obviously considered il very
amusing. "What game'' I'm just
a lowly, humble D.J. who
knows nothing."
I believed him.
So I tried the Office of Student Affairs and there received a
polite but nevertheless negative
reply. The Office of Student
Activities was at least sympathetic, but said it was too late
this year and to possibly contact
the Athletic Department for
next season.
It just seems to me that there
is something lacking here in the
line of responsiveness to ideas
coming from u norganized
students if all are met with the

I'm sorry that our football team

The Albany Great Danes will
attempt to nail down an unbeaten season in its third and
final year of club football with a
season-ending game tomorrow at
Plattsburgh. The task will be
difficult, since the Cardinals
have won five straight after two
losses and have beaten Albany in
each of the past two seasons.
Coach Roger Casciani has a
strong defensive club that has
seven opponents,
103-57. After losing to St. Lawrence (16-0) and Nichols (14-6),
Plattsburgh has beaten Brockport (15-0), RIT (19-14), New
(21-6), and Bridgewater (20-0).
Against two common opponents, Albany tied Brockport.
13-13, and beat RIT, 28-7.
Plattsburgh shut out Albany,
28-0, in their first meeting two
years ago and won a 7-6 defensive battle last fall.

Freshman halfback Marvin Perry has set a season rushing record for Albany with 553 yards
to date. His 191 yards against
Brockport is one-game high and
he leads the club with five
touchdowns, three of which
came against Siena. Albany built
up a 36-3 third-quarter lead
against Siena, then withstood
three final-period Indian scores
for a 36-21 victory. The tie with
Brockport is the only blemish on
Albany's 6-0-1 record.
Joining Perry in the all-freshman backfield will be quarterback John Bertuzzi who has run
the triple-option, Wishbone-T
with finesse all year; McCoy
Allister 326 yards; and Noel
Walker, 184 yards and three
TD's, who earned a starting
berth two weeks ago.
Albany has rolled up 1,670
yards on the ground, while outscoring
176-55. The Dane defense, led
by tackles Frank Villanova and
Dom Pagano, hus blanked three
foes. The secondary has stolen
20 passes, four by halfback
Bruce Cummings, who intercepted three against Siena.
Albany's main problem; partially a result of the offense,
which necessitates considerable
piichouts and fakes; has been
holding onto the ball. The Great
Danes have fumbled 46 times
and lost 20 of them.

by Bill Heller
No, this isn't an ad for A M F or
Brunswick. I t is merely the latest
gem heaped upon the heralded
and undefeated Albany State
grid team. As they go up against
Plattsburgh t o m o r r o w , in the
back of their minds will be the
possibility of a bowl bid. If the
Danes w i n , and thus complete
their record at 7-0-1, they'll be
in direct line for a bid f r o m the
National Club Football Association ( N C F A ) . It w o u l d n ' t be
the Rose Bowl, but nonetheless
it would p i t Albany against one
of the top club football teams in
the nation.
After a hush hush meeting
with head coach Bob Ford and
athletic director, Joe Garcia, I
gathered these facts. Every year
the NCFA sponsors a club howl
game — this year there will be
two: one on Friday nighl, No
vember24th at Fordham Univer
sity, the other the following
afternoon at M o u n t Vernon Stadium in Westchester. Four bids
will be handed o u t sometime
botween now and gametime.
The bids are usually based on a
national weekly club poll that
had Albany ranked third after
the HVCC game. Since then,
Albany hasn't been ranked. This
is where the problems start. Be
causes Albany plans to go Lo
varsiLy status next season, they
declined to pay the one hundred
dollars annual club fee. So they
were dropped from the rankings
Despite this, the NCFA has
dropped feelers in Coach Ford's
direction. On October 2!)th,
Ford nut a call from the I'resi
dent of the NCFA saying thai
Albany was being considered, il
they paid their dues. Ford had
in hedge, mainly because he
doesn't have ihe authority to
make the decision. A call again
last week provided no more in
Why was Ford consulted ami
mil athletic director Garcia''
Thai's what, has bothered fiarcia
up to now. " I knew nothing ol ,1
howl game until Monday mghl "
If he was to be consulted by the
NCFA he could then go out,
estimate costs, and send the de
cision to the Athletic Board,
and consequently to the Central
(if costs exceeded
$1000) for approval. But presently, Garcia has not been contacted officially.
In general, there are morecons
than pros for going lo a bowl
game. First, there's the costs.
What with lights for extended
practice, transportation costs,
h o t e l accomodations, meals,
gatne films, ami extra insurance,

A L B A N Y (AP) - A railroad

The structure was built in the
early part of this century as a

Hall in Ypres, Belgium. It is
constructed of reinforced con-

building, at the f o o t of the State
Capitol, has a 13-story central
tower capped by a gilded weathervane depicting Hudson's ship,
the "Half M o o n . "
In announcing the plan Friday,
Chancellor Ernest L. Boyer of
the S t a t e University said the
Delaware & Hudson Railroad,
the present occupants, have
agreed t o sell the building for

purchasing the D & H building,
he said. As for the cost of
acquisition and rehabilitation, he
said, "We're not talking about
much less m o n e y than building

The interior will be rehabilitated, he said. Asked about the
