The contemporary maxim that
students arc the new niggers of the
world has again been validated with
the reinstatement of reserved parking lor both faculty and stuff.
Vice President for University Affairs Lewis Welch has been forced to
revert to last year's reserved parking
system because of an agreement
worked out between the United University Professions (UUP) and the
Governor's Office of Employee
Relations.
Assistant Vice-President of Un?
ivcrsity Affairs Sorrcll Chesin said
that the segregated parking system is
"forthcoming in the very near
future." All that is lacking is the Administrative go-ahead.
Student Association leaders
believe that last year's University
Senate decision to have first-come,
first-served parking should be binding because the Senate is the "dulyelected" campus governing body.
The controversy started fourteen
months ago when a student parking
strike initiated by Central Council
led to the Senate's decision.
Under the previous system resident
students were relegated to the rear of
the Stale and Dutch lots, commuters
had the middle section and faculty
and staff had the section closest to
the podium. At that time, the lots on
State and Dutch were the only paved
parking lots on the quads.
Through a complicated network
of appeals, members of the UUP,
formerly the Senate Professional
Association (SPA), filed a grievance
to have the reserved system
reinstated.
The union contended that open
parking violates part of their StatcSPA Agreement. The unionexplained that open parking diminishes and
impairs a "benefit or privilege"
provided them by law without "prior
notice of SPA."
The S e n a t e
Professional
Associaion, under the terms of their
contract, appealed the University
Senate's decision to President
Bcnezet's office. The SUN YA President designated Assistant Vice President of University Afairs Sorrcll
Chesin to be in charge of the appeal.
Chesin found SPA's grievance invalid. He explained that the faculty's
right to parking had not been impaired because members could still
have access to the same parking lots
as before.
t
Chesin said that the use of paring
facilities is not a "benefit or privilege
provided by law."

The union then appealed to
SUNY Central, under Chancellor
Boycr's office. Boyer's office also
supported the students' position
over the union.
The union, adamant on their demand for segregated parking,
appealed to the Governor's Office of
Employee Relations (OER). OER at
first ruled along with the previous
body, saying that specific rules for
parking are up to the U niversity and
that the University Senate has the

on the new segregated parking
system, "I don't know if thi is an
irreconcilable type of thing." "As it
stands now we really have to implement it. However, if there were a
change pi heart, then maybe there's a
chance that something can be
done," said Hartley
OER could
not be reached for comment.*
On this issue students and
Aininistration are on the same side.
Concerning the Senate's decision in
March IV7J for open parking,
Hartley said. "I have seen nothing to
change my mind - the wish of the
University community is for open
parking." The directive for reserved
parking will probably come from
Hartley's office in the near future.

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (AP) Former Supreme Court Justice Arthur J
Goldberg on Monday compared Nelson Rockefeller's admission of responsibility for a derogatory book about Goldberg to former President Richard
M. Nixon's acceptance of responsibility for Watergate.
Goldberg said he welcomed an opportunity to testify before renewed
hearings on Rockefeller's confirmation as vice president.
Goldberg said Rockfeller's apology about the book was "very reminiscent
of another statement" in which Nixon once said he would take "lull responsibility for the Watergate affair."
"He [Rockefeller] owes an apology to the American people." Goldberg
told a news conference. "What is needed is a complete statement of the facts."
MIAMI.FIa. (AP) American diplomat Barbara Hutchinson arrived in
the United States Monday, saying she has no qualms about returning next
week to her job in the Dominican Republic, where she was held captive by
pro-communist kidnapers for 12 days.
"Oh, I have no anxiety about going back," said the tall, thin and freckled
Miss Hutchison, 47. She will first spend a 10 day vacation in Florida.
"It was sort of a fluke-type of kidnaping anyway, and 1 get the choice of going back there or somewhere else, but I love the country and there are many

The veteran foreign service officer said her only worry was that the I S

said with a smile.
NEW YORK (AP) Gov. Malcolm Wilson and Rep. Hugh Carey, m the
first debate of the gubernatorial campaign, clashed Monday over Wilson's
pledge to veto any future improvements in public employee pensions.
Wison called pensions "a time bomb" that could bankrupt government.
and said they should be taken off the collective bargaining table.
Carey said the state needed to decide "what we can afford," but declined lo
rule out any improvements in benefits.
In the Vh hour debate at the New York Times, the two men argued heatedly, each man frequently interrupting the other. Carey scowled acress the table
at Wilson throughout the session; Wilson alternately scowled and laughed
when he wanted to ridicule something Carey had said.
NEW YORK, (AP) Leaders of the country's transit systems were urged

Watergate Unravels
(AP) A short, stocky young man
with wavy black hair and a broad
smile leaned on a lectern Monday
and began to unravel the
prosecution's charges in the
Watergate cover-up trial.
That beginning fell to Richard
Ben-Venistc, who charged that the
conspiracy "involved the participation" of former President Richard
M. Nixon.
Hen-Veniste. who was three years
old when Nixon made his first
successful campaign for Congress in
1946, recounted the now familiar
story of the Watergate break-in and
cover-up.
His voice was firm and strong as
he delivered the government's opening statement against one of the most
stellar casts of criminaldefcndants in
America's history.
The men he was accusing were all
older; John N. Mitchell is nearly
twice his 31 years, a lawyer who
made it big in the bond .market.
He did not rail, he did not gesture;
indeed the delivery was almost in a
.slouch.
Hie spotlight was Ben-'Venistc's,
all eyes were turned lo the squat
figure in rimless glasses. Behind him,
looking past his back to the jury,
were the men whose freedom and
reputations are on the line.
Mitchell, twice manager of
Richard Nixon's successful campaigns and his law and order attorney general.
HnIdcman, who had left a
successful advertising agency career
lo a rise in the political world with
Nixon when Hen-Veniste was still
going to Columbia University
School of Law.
John 1). Ehrlichmun, a lawyer
who wtis an advance man for Nixon
by the time Ben-Venistc finished a
criminal luw fellowship program.
Robert C. Mardian,,who wus a
Justice Department official and
Kenneth W. Parkinson, a partner in
a successful Washington law firm,
long before Bcn-Veniste began his
rapid rise in the Justice Department.
•Ben-Venistc told the jury the
cover-up first began by an attempt to
deny official knowledge but "mere
denials were not sufficient and false
explanations were necessary to sustain this line."
Repeatedly, he said the men at the
top were trying lo portray the
Watergate burglars as"people off on
a lark of their own."
OCTOBER 15, 1974
Ben-Veniste, the son of Sephardic
Jews, was raised in New York City.
Bui his early career, beginning as
Nixon wasjusl two months shy of
election as President in 1968, has
seen him participate in a number of
big cases of official corruption.
He has prosecuted income tax
fraud and union kickback cases,
embezzlement cases and perjury aiid
bribery in high places in New York.
While the opening statement was
his, the chief prosecutor at the trial is
James F. Neal, a genial Tcnnessean
whose soft voice is in marked contrast to the harsh tones of BenVenistc.
But he earned the opening shot,
through more than a year's hard
work to pry from the White House
the tapes that will become such an
important part of the trial.

ROME (AP) Amintore Fanfani, a staunch anti-Communist Catholic
leader, got the nod Monday to form a new government to try to bail Italy out
of us polgjgland economic crisis without Communist participation
prcsjgM j^vanni Leone called on the 66-year old Fanfani, a four-time
ex-prcnBsOsWsecretary general of the dominant Christian Democratic party, after II days of uncertainty about Italy's political course.
Premier Mariane Rumor resigned Oct, 3, creating a vacuum that many
Italians speculated could only be filled by bringing Italy's big Communist party into the government. Fanfani's appointment appeared to end this
possibility, at least for the present.
However, in a statement issued after his appointment Fanfani said the
situation before him was "not encouraging.''
He said he would "insist initially" on trying to revive the center-left coalition of .Catholics and Socialists whose breakup brought down Rumor.
Rumor, like all Italian premiers since 1943, is a Christian Democrat.
The center-left coalition broke apart over the insistence of the Socialist
Party, the second largest coalition partner, to give the Communists a role in
solving Italy's worst postwar economic crisis. The Italian Co mmunist party.
the largest in the West, has been kept out of power since the war.
WASHINGTON (AP) President Ford today vetoed legislation to cut off
U.S. military aid to Turkey, declaring the measure would force the United
States to withdraw from Cyprus peace negotiations and jeopardize the
NATO alliance.
His veto of the measure, which also continued appropriations for several
key government agencies, was expected. So is an attempt by Congress to
override his action before taking an election recess.
Ford used strong language in his message returning the measure to Congress without his approval.
"I take this step with great reluctance, but in the belief I have no other
choice." He said " . . . it is an act which is harmful even to these it purports to
help."

Some county Boards of Elections report receipt of up
to 60 student absentee ballot applkatons per day—
particularly from Binghamton and Buffalo—despite
complex absentee voter registration, and balloting
provisions in the State Election Law, the lack of a standard absentee ballot application form, and some confusion among Board of Election workers.
'
Student Governments at Buffalo State and SUNY
Binghamton have launched voting drives, and eight
other campus student governments will begin similar
drives immediately.
The Binghamton Student Government has distributed
to each student postcards which request that the students
home county Board of Elections send the student an
absentee ballot application. SASU has distributed
voting information to students through campus
newspapers, and has now discovered that absentee ballot
applicaitons are not required to be notarized. The Election Law states that they "may be" notarized.
Both Hugh Carey and the Republican State Committee have urged that a standard absentee ballot
application form for New York State be adopted and
that County Boards of Elections accept each other's
application forms in the interim.
The Carey for Governor Campaign urged student
governments to begin voting drives and has reminded all
county Boards of Elections that the New York State
Board of Elections asks that they accept applications
from other counlies.
All the counties have pledged to do so, but there has
been some confusion. A worker in the Albany County
Board of Elections said October 8 that his Board would
not accept application forms •from another county
because they arc usually a different color and would be
voided. An Albany county ElectionCommissioner

Once received, the form must be filled out, witnessed

Fill out the absentee ballot application—after it is requested and received—and make sure that it is received
by the home Board of Elections no earlier than October 7
and no later than October 29.
Primary and General Election absentee ballots must
be applied for separately.
The Republicans oppose letting students vote in their
college communities, but they have asked that Boards of
Elections set up "mini-Boards of Elections" on campuses, in old age homes, and other such places. State
Committee Chairman Richard Rosenbaum called granting students the right to vote at their college residence
"a dangerous concept" because it would allow students
to do minatc some loca I governments. The State Board of
Elections apparently docs not have the person power to
implement the mini-boards suggestion.

Affirmative Action for Equality
by Pat Sakal
The Affirmative Actions program
extends equal opportunities to all
students in areas such us counseling,
financial aid, athletics, activities,
placement, and standards of admission. The program tries to take sqrne
positive action to case discrimination.
The program is also involved in
the hiring of professors. Affirmative
Actions tries to seek out good personnel that will reflect the diversity
of American life—different races,
creeds, sexes, to create a wellbalanced work force in the University, said the director of the program,
Dolores Barracan Schmidt. For example, instead of just advertising in
the New York Times, which will only
reach a certain type of population,
the program advertises in feminist,
llkick. Indian, and other minority
newspapers, Schmidt explained. She
noted that the program means" a
policy of "no secrecy" in seeking
Chrittine Jorgenton:
applicants.
Schmidt believes that a University
community is in a unique position
because it has the power to change
what may be wrong within it.
Schmidt explained it is the University's job to ask, "Why arc there
no women applyingfor a job, for example, as a Physics teacher'.'" She interprets this by saying there must be
something within that particular
department which inhibits women
from applying for such a job,
whether it be because no women are
qualified to be Physics teachers
(again, why not?) or because women
aren't included in the field in the first
place.
Concerning the hiring of women in
business, Schmidt said, the attitude
of those hiring business employees,
is that therearc no applications from
women for u particular job,
therefore no women are interested
in, or trained for, such a job. It is
the
university's job, contends
Schmidt, to train all people lor any
job. The university has control over
the situation whereas businesses
generally do not.
The Affirmative Actions program
was created by the Federal Government in reference to equal opportunity practices. The program is based on the "Equal Pay Act," the
"Civil Rights Act of 1964, the State
of N,Y. Human Rights Act, and an
Executive Order."
It's up to the student, or job applicant, not to take lull advantage of
Affirmative Actions. Schmidt, who
is married and the mother of three
children, explained her own personal situation. A married woman
need not be totally confined; the
woman is generally less mobile than
her husband.'If the couple reviews
he situation and finds out that they
can work out an arrangement in
which both may pursue their career
yet stay happily married, that is a
good alternative, said Schmidt. The
Schmidt's have found that they can
bolh work (her husband works at a
Pennsylania Stale College), and can
bolh be satisfied with their work and
their marriage.
Portraitof a Woman a*a Young Man
by Paul Summer
On October 17, Christine .lorgcnson, one of the first people to ever
undergo a sex change operation, will
be speakTng in the Campus Center
ballroom. Jorgcnson, who is being
sponsored by the
University
Speakers' Korum, will speak at 8
p.m.
Christine's story goes back to the
early fillies. Twenty years ago, a
slender young woman stepped off a
plane from Denmark to be greeted
by reporters and the American
public. Christine had been born a
male, and after living as a shy,
effeminate young man for 24 years,
he had been surgically transformed
into a woman,
For the new woman, this was an
end of a tortuous search for sexual
identity. She soon became America's
foremost fascination.
When she had her operation,
Christine's story took precedence
over the hydrogen bomb tests, the
death of King George Sixth, the
Korean War, and the work of Jonas
Salk.
Christine Jorgenson has appeared
in nightclubs, on Broadway, and on
television and radio. In 1967, her
uutobiography entitled Jorgenson:
A Personal Autobiography
was
published. This was later made into a
film. She hopes her book would set
the record straight on iransexualily.
Ms.JwcjMaejiwrllt»bilh«CMtpiMC^
Since her operation many other
people with sexual identity problems
have followed Jorgcnson's lead. Asa
sign of the sexual revolution Jorgenson's operation has almost becomea
real option open to people with sex
identity problems
instead of a
ridiculous, once in a century,
phenomenon.
Though her operation was a much
publicized success, Jorgenson
doesn't have a complete female
reproductive system.
In her lecture Jorgenson will supposedly try lo educate parents and
ALBANY STUDENT PRESS
children on the medical history and
the prognosis' of gender identity
problems. She will describe the
symptoms to look for, the available
Ireatmcnl for sex identity problems,
and how to deal with pressures from
society. Jorgenson hopes to give a
greater understanding to those
youngsters who grow up knowing
that they won't fit into their prescribed sexual roles.
Jorgenson was the first lecturer at
the , National Entertainment Conference and has been a frequent
speaker on college campuses.

The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML)
has challenged the recently released Report of the Senate Sucommittee on Internal Security. In the Report's introductory remarks, the Subcommittee's
Chairman, James O. Eastland, claimed the use of marijuana represents "a
trend towards national disaster."
The Mississippi Democrat said if the current rate of marijuana use continued , Americans might find themselved "saddled with a large population of.
semi-zombies."
NORML Director Keith Stroup called the Eastland Report "the most
amazing piece of self-serving Action and distortions to come out of the Congress since the McCarthy hearings in the early 1950's. The subcommittee:
Report in no way represents a consensus of scientific opinion, either government or private. The Report is an embarrassment to those seriously interested in the problems of druguse and abuse in our society, and a disservice
to those who arc objectively attempting to determine the possible harmful
effects of marijuana."
"Propaganda of the proportions of the Eastland Report can only have
tragic and brutal consequences," Stroup continued. "Unfortunately, some of
the law enforcement community may respond to the Report by increasing
arrests of marijuana smokers. The plain truth," Stroup concluded "is thatthe
criminal law has not worked and will not work where marijuana is concerned. The result can only be harmful and costly to both society and the individual."
In challenging the Report, NORML made the following observations:
•Senator Eastland Hatty refused to permit anyone to testify unless they
shared his views about marijuana's potential forhurm, and the resulting six
days of hearings were an admitted one-sided presentation. The Senator says
in the Report's introductory statement, "We make no apology, therefore, for
the one-sided nature of our hearings - - they were deliberately planned this
way," (p.V)
•Much ol the testimony attempted to connect the use of marijuanu with
Communism and "the new left." Senator Eastland apparently wanted lo
depict marijuana as a devious Communist plot in order lo justify jurisdiction
lor the Intermit Security Subcommittee, itself an anachronism of the McCarthy era.
•Senator Eastland showed overwhelming concern about exaggerated
marijuana claims, but de-emphasized the clearly demonstrated serious harm
from alcohol and tobacco. "...The dangers of cannabis (marijuana)are much
closer to the dangers of heroin, in scope and quality, than they arc lo the udiriilted bill far more limited dangers of coffee or tobacco — or, for that
matter, alcohol." (p. XVI) From the Senator's statement, his concern for
public health apparently stops al the doorstep of the powerful tobacco and liquor lobbies.
* The Senator summarized his fears about marijuana in the following
paragraph:
"If the epidemic is not rolled back, our society may be largely taken over by
a 'marijuana culture' — a culture motivated by a desire to escape from reality
and by a consuming lust for self-gratification, and lacking any higher moral
guidance. Such a society could not long endure." (p. XII)
This is in stark contrast to what the bi-partisan National Commission on
Marijuana and Drug Abuse (Shafcr Commission) had to say after an intensive two-year study of the effects of marijuana on society. Their conclusion:
"When the issue of marijuana use is placed in this context of society's larger
concerns, marijuana does not emerge as a major issue or threat to the social
order....The fundamental principles and values upon which the society rests
are far too enduring to go up in the smoke of a marijuana cigarette." (p. 102,

The Rockefeller Coup
For sixteen yean, it hat been no secret that Nelson Rockefeller hat bad bit eye on the
Presidency, tie hat failed in every attempt (both announced and implied) to achieve
that floaL T i e normal, legal electoral process hat evaded the multi-millionaire in hit v
quest, and it now ttemt that he it determined to achieve that elusive goal through the
rarely used 25th Amendment procedure of appointing a new Vice-President.
In light of recent revelations. Nelson Rockefeller is simply not qualified to be the
Vice-President of the United States. Hit gifts to key political figures does notmerely
cast doubt on his bid for the Vice-Presidency, it plunges him into the abyss of political
chicanery. Even hit devout and ardent shadow, Governor Malcolm Wilson has forsaken him in his hour of need. Wilson said that he could not condone Rockefeller's
financial underwriting of the Lasky book defaming Arthur Gqldberg, Rockefeller's
1970 Democratic opponent for the Governorship. To the tune of $60,000, the VicePresident Designate authorized a book which allowed him to cheat his way into his
fourth' term as Governor,of New York.
Democratic senatorial candidate Ramsey Clark chided the former Governor for a
? 15,000 contribution made to his opponent, incumbent Senator Jacob Javits. Javits
hi inself, as he typically does when put-under pressure, equivocated by saying that he
may return the contribution, Rockefeller has gotten'his filthy-rich hands into every
aspect of government, from the local level up through and including Washington. If he
cannot get himself elected to the White House, he's going to try his hardest to buy his
entrance ticket there.
The Rockefeller Coup, the most artistic bloodless political takeover in our history is
almost a reality'. The vigilance of the House and Senate investigative committees may
prevent that ascension, but the probability of that is slight.
The four State University Centers join in their belief that the former Governor
should remove his name from consideration for the Vice-Presidency immediately, in
order to allow someone more competent to assume that position.

The United University Professions, the union representing faculty on the SUNYA
campus is treading dangerously close to effecting a breach of the close relations that
students and faculty have enjoyed of late. Though opposing the action themselves, the •
union effectively removed ail students from decision-making influence in tenure review
procedures. Now, as direct result of SUNYA faculty insistence, the Administration
through the Management and Planning Office will reinstate segregated parking on the
Dutch and State Quad parking lots.

Som&Perspectivas are less conventional than others.
Last Wednesday, Daniel Gaines tried to gain some insight into
the lives of the handicapped by spending a day in a wheelchair. He
describes his new found Perspectives on 3P.
David Lerner, iheASP's Editor-in Chief, has a unique Perspective
that comes from living in a fraternity without being a part of it. Turn
to 4P and 5P for a view of frat lifeymttenby an independent living in
the midst of the rushing, the parties* and the brotherhood.
Also in this issue are Perspectives of ariot-so-quietbeach in
autumn, a drug bust, and "La Causa" of the farmworkers.
So ... find yourself a new Perspective... like the top of the carillon

Instinct For Survival
From reading letters to the editor
written by m e m b e r s of Greek
organizations, it is fairly simple to
arrive at the conclusion that a
member of a frat cannot critically
evaluate his role' on campus. The
superlatives intertwined in a letterirorri
a frat member cloud the fact that much
of what he boasts about, or complains
about for that matter, bears a certain
measure of truth. Unfortunately, each
time a brother responds to a criticism,
he winds itupby.inadvertently (to give
him the benefit of the doubt) asking us
to join. It is the instinct for survival, for
Greek organizations, both fraternities
and sororities, are fast disappearing
from the face of the campus.
In the frat section of Schuyler Hall,
Dutch Quad, the brothers x>f Theta Xi
Omega are holding a rush function,
complete with "beer and broads." The
typical, mythical frat party is underway, and anyone who enters convinced that frat members are loud,
drunken, beer-guzzling, and womerchasing uncouth slobs will leave
smugly reassured of their belief.
There are two large speakers hanging from the third floor ledge. The
restraining links of hardened chains
wrapped around the steel supporting
fence on the third floor prevent the two
heavy boxes from depositing their contents on the second floor. Most hours of
any given day, the chains don't have a
very demanding job, as their captives
present themselves as very meek and
unresisting prisoners. It is during these
hours that appearances, as they are
notoriously wont to do, mislead the
casual eye.
would be equally simple to classify the
men of TXO in a somewhat similar
manner, except that you would be doing yourself an injustice.
Stereotypically Nondescript
On this hypothetical night, however,
those chains are being strained to their'
limit. The drone of the nondescript
s p e a k e r s , s y m b o l i c of t h e
stereotypically nondescript member of
the frat, is deafening.
For the uninitiated, rush function is
an attempt by a Irat to recruit new
members. With other types of
organizations, such a recruitment
process will take on different forms,
such as a rally, a lecture, a formal
dinner, or, in the case of the recruitment to attend this university, an
application and competition. With a
frat, a rush function is almost exclusively a party involving some sort of
liquor (often beer, but recently tequila
sunrises or wine and cheese) and a
group of women, (usually a sorority,
but often enough a general population
of women on the quad).
As long as there have been fraternities the prevailing view of frats has
been that of beer and women, and here
they are playing up to the very
stereotype that they will most
vehemently deny. Ask any frat
member what his frat is all about and
you will be told: "A Irat is an academic,
service and social organization
designed to better the lives of the university community." That blurb is so
automatic that it is reliably reported
that Potter Club has its members-to-be
sit naked on a block of ice and repeat
their impression of a frat's raison d'etre.
TXO.up to lastyear would take their initiatees out into the middle of the quad
dressed in summer attire during the
dead ol January and have then utter
the meaning of a frat.
Are Rushees Masochists?
On the surface they are exactly what
their detractors like to claim, and then
some. Yet despite its problems, the
fraternity life on campus continues,
and with some groups, such as TXO,
still thrives. What makes them tick?

thinning dime. TXO has abandoned
the kidnap procedure, but still has the
institution of paddling. Every rushee is
given a father—a veteran member ol
the frat, whose trusteeship ol a son
(having a son is considered an honor)
is determined on a merit basis. Sun
day, the members ol the Irat convened
to determine who ol the rushees shall
be given the chance to ioin in a
process known as a bid session.
Those rushees not cut during the
session have become pledges, and last
night the pledges, in one ol the last
remaining ceremonial rites, were
paddled by their lathers, a symbolic
act ol acceptance and the cleansing ol

course of both "hell week," during
which time the pledge is completing
his "hell letter"-—a list ol assigned tasks
with more ceremonial value than
practical—and "hell night" the
proceedings are a quite tame affair.
The pledge is expected to memorize
certain information about his brothers
which he spits back upon questioning
on hell night. If he doesn't know the inlormation? Well, nobody's perfect.
Paddles Of The Past
Preserved through the ages, the inscribed paddles of past and present
brothers adorns the lence on the third
lloor ol Schuyler. Ranging back to a
graduate of 1970, paddles bearing all
manner ol artistic design grace the Irat
section. Each paddle bears the inscription ol the Irat, either through its name
only, or through an intricate artwork ol
its cpat of arms. In fact, there are so
many reminders thatafrat section is indeed a frat section, that it would be
easy to wonder it the frat has a
collossal, collective indenlilication
problem.
In Schuyler Hall, for example, the
entire south wall of the TXO section is
emblazoned with the coat ol arms ol
TXO. Half of it is done in dayglo paint.
Beneath that, also in dayglo are two
block prints of the letters, T-X-O In addition are the thirty or so paddles each
bearing the initials of the frat.
Remarkably enough, the members
ol the frat refuse to blend into an allencompassing, almost omnipotent
view of the Irat, they insist on retaining
their individuality. It would be easy
enough to classify the men of Potter
Club as large, strong, athletic, and universally dumb, and be satislied that
you've done an admirable job at
slandering a group ol men in the interest ol preserving one's own ego. It
OCTOBER.15, 1974.
3.3 And Rising
With such an overbearance of overt
attempts at assimilating into "The Frat,"
it would be strange to assert that each
ol the men ol TXO isan individual unique as each independent is unique
and maybe even more so. The average
index ol the TXO section is 3.3 and rising. Majors range Irom English to
Biology to Political Scipnce. Interests
range in equal numbers to the
membership ol the frat. Not all ol the
Irat members are Ihe "brothers" they
would like to pass themselves oil as being. Not lew ol them are almost unwelcome in the section, and some
others have strained relations.
The o v e r w h e l m i n g majority
however, enjoy disproportionately
good relations with their neighbors, especially when taken in comparison
with an all-independent section.
Malcolm Purow, one oi three rush
masters this year, said ol independent
halls, "I've never been so proud ol living in the Irat as when I went around
distributing invitations to our formal
rush lunctions. Those places were a
pig sty. They looked worse than our
section alter our messiest party."
Purow, though he speaks obviously
with a vested interest, rellects much ol
the opinion in Ihe Irat. The internal
organization ol a Irat such as TXO is
what keeps the section clean, and
keeps the hierarchy lunctioning.
Between the members, the three rush
masters, the rotation ol party responsibility, and the traditional president,
vice-president and treasurer, the work
ol Ihe group is divided sufficiently.
Chaos Vs. Organization
Independent lile is chaotic. Frat life
isorganized. Where independent lile is
without direction, Irat lile has a goal, its
perpetuation. Where independent life
is unstructured, Irat lile has a foundation. Where independents have rigid
impressions ol Greeks, Irat brothers
have equally rigid impressions of independents.
Bob Golian is the captain ol theTXO
lootball team. Like most ol the rest ol
the Irat, he is a junior, and he has
delinite views ol lile outside the Irat.
"When a bunch ol independents have
a lood light, everybody says, 'What the
hell, it's a lood light,' but when a Irat has
a lood light they say, 'Look at those
animals, il figures a Irat would behave
like a bunch ol pigs.' It's ridiculous, we
have to behave belter than the average
student." Purow added, "Now that's a
double standard."
laime Soto is a sophomore. He is the
only Puerto Rican member of the Irat
and is on the Educational Opportunities Program. Even more than his
brothers, laime takes his academic lile
seriously, "Lile on E . O . P . is pretty
tough, like you know, in your senior

through school. That's when most of us

far quieter than independent life.

events. So far, they have all been
liquor-and-women parties, a fact
whichmay never have occurred to the
rushee. .
Women Not Used As Lure
De Govanni defended the practice.
"We want people to come to these
events. No one will come if there isn't
any booze or women." Chauvinistic?
No, for he doesn't think of it in those
terms. Women aren't used as a lure to
attract homy males into captivity,
"booze-and-broads" parties are the
way things always have been, and
De&jvanni., a conservative to begin
with, is not about to tamper with the
rule ol the past.
Some of the other brothers have
suggested holding rap sessions with
rushees, to get to know them better.
Other suggestions included holding a
lootball ga me, or a keg while watching
a televised game. The purpose, as Jerry
Albrecht put it, is to get to know the
men thai might be in the Irat one day.
This he admits, is impossible with the
speakers blaring and the taps running
in a crowded lounge hall filled with
women. Something is wrong with the
method.
Frats have had an assigned* task
which they have carried out without interruption. STB has traditionally been
the one . involved most heavily, in
school politics. Central Council ViceChairperson Eric Klein is from STB, for
example. Most of the members of
Colonial Quad's Quad Board have
been from STB and the now defunct
GDX. ,APA and Potter Club have
always been the backbone of the Dane
varsity teams, with most of Potter having key roles in the successful season
the Dane football team has enjoyed so
far. Rudy Vido, SUNYAC wrestling
champion, all-star track and field man
and delensive lineman on the Danes
typilies the Potter Club legend. A
member ol TXO has been the business

At eleven o'clock that night theenormous speakers were silent, victim of
the drainage ol the kegs. The women
had left and the lew straggling rushees
were winding up their introductory
sessions with their potential' brothers.
The rest went off to sleep. De Govanni
called after them, "You're coming to
the beer party on Saturday night at
Mohawk campus? It's a brlng-yourown-date affair." "Sure," one of the
laceless voices replied, "sure." He disappeared down the steps, to ioin the
darkness.

which only the strikebreakers would
vote, they failed to respond. So on this
point, the anti-U.F.W. forces have some
gaping holes in thier armor to patch
up.
As far as contract comparison goes,
a simple perusal of both the U.F.W. and
Teamster models shows that while in
fact, wages are about the same for
each, in the benefitsarea, the Teamster
contract is extremely weak. In times as
financially unstable as the present, this
could be a real detriment for the
Teamsters.
In pursuit of the argument that
U.F.W. influence is on the decline,
again, we must detour around the
blindspots set up by "Is Chavez
Beaten?" Aside from being an absolutist sort of notion and thus narrow, it
ignores the headline of an August 27th
intra-Union memo of the UFW which
asserts that, "Strike fever is burning
like flames across a dry plain through
the ranches of California and Arizona."
What the memooutlinesis the incredible series of strikes going on in crops
other than grapes and head lettuce
(lemons, tomatoes, etc.). So, if influence
is measured in terms of mobilization,
then the UFW has had literally
thousands in action within its ranks lor
a long time. And with the successful
raiding of those precious grape and
lettuce fields, the union has wisely
placed increased emphasis on the
boycott weapon (much to its advantage one might add). The Wall Street
Journal ol May 16, 1974 pointed that
out at that time; a powerful and quite
threatening 19% of Gallo wine sales
had fallen oil with the end still not in
sight (keep in mind that 12% is the
profit-loss mark).
an anlysis ol our own (Chavez supporters' that is), we must mention three
basic facts that have made conditions
in the U.S. relatively harsh for the
bourgeoning, democratic United
Farmworkers ol America. They have
had to contend with an unrelieved
bankruptcy problem that would strap
any union seeking the use ol its alleffective strike weapon. Moreover, it
has gotten virtually no assistance from
fraternal AFL-CIO unions. Secondly,
we may couple the developing unemployment morass in the U.S. and
Mexico to the bankruptcy problem
and we immediately see an incredible
scab dilemma arising on the UFW
scene. Finally, there is that AilAmerican problem which most other
unions didn't have to contend with: the
incredibly racialist outlook of the
American people. In point of fact, it is
the culturally-bred racism of
American society which divides
American working people in general
and farmworkers from non-Chicanos
in particular. This has been the most
detrimental force in the long run in
terms of the class interests of workers
and as experience shows, has cost
workers lots of hard cash, regardless of
their color. But in this situation, it is the
predominantly Chicano farm workersof
the UFW who have suffered the most
by this fact.
To sum up then, we should learn two
comprehensive lessons Irom thecritique
of "Is Chavez Beaten?" One is that union building and the development of a
workers' movement in this country is,
and will be, a long, slow and often,
agonizing process. Just about every
union
in the nation has laced
problems similar to that of the UFW.

In August, two new initials were scratched into #5's wall. My Initials.
It happened just like on Adam-12, The Rookies or any other television police
show.
I was walking down a rather deserted street aroundduskin an industrial district. I was going home, smoking a joint, minding my own business; AH of a
sudden I noticed that there were now two men, dressed like laborers, walking
along the same street as me. They were walking near the parked cars, heading
towards me, when one guy parted from the other and headed on a path that crossed mine 'in a few steps.The other guy continued walking straight and passed me.
In the split second when I realized something was going to happen, they moved and caught me as I tried to run away. The white one threw me down, and I
managed to roll with it, so as to land next to the building, providing a littleprotection on one side. Well, here's my first mugging coming up. I thought, and being

thirty six dollars in my wallet was past history, a worthy barter for my life.
"Ya damn straight you'll give it to us," gritted the whiteone again as he lunged
at me. A second later he had me Irom behind with his black partner in front of me.
Amazingly enough, I still had the joint in my hand and offered it towards the black
guy, in the hopes ol eliciting the brotherhood our common denominator gives us.
I couldn't have been more wrong.
"Yeah, that's what we want," he said reaching out, and all of a sudden I realized
that this wasn't a mugging—it was a bust. With speed I never thought I had, that
joint was in my mouth and 1 was chewing and swallowing frantically.
In an effort to intercept, the black guy started to choke me. But it was too late.
Most of it was gone. I managed to say "I swallowed it. It'sgone." and they stopped.
1 now had my hands- contorted in handcuffs behind my back and was being
dragged toward their car. They were talking and acting tough and all I was
thinking was "It can't happen to me. This just cannot be happening."
The black one threw me against the carside and frisked me. Also checked was
my knapsack, which I was sure was empty oi dope. The joint I'd swallowed used
up the last ol the grass when I rolled it.
But 1 was stupid. I'd emptied the film can's contents into that joint, sure, but I did
not clean out the container.
"Got enough to book 'im?" asked the white guyJ
The thin, almost invisible film ot grass dust was indeed enough.
"Yup, we got 'im" came the answer, and 1 was shoved into the unmarked car.
Two minutes later the car parked in the Police Headquarters garage. The white
guy got out and opened the trunk', then appeared at my door. He pulled me out
and I saw he was wearing black leather gloves. I figured that they had something
to do with fingerprints,
I was wrong. They were lor beating, so there wouldn't be any marks.

The white guy pulled and pushed me towards the staircase, yelling "Stand up,
Punk! Stand up!" When I finally did manage to stand up, on the stair landing the
white guy kneed me in the groin. He missed my balls, but I tell to the ground and
screamed so that he wouldn't know it and try again. Dragged up the rest of the
stairs, and thrown into the elevator, I was headed to the narcotics oflice.
"We got a lighter here" the white one ollered as we passed numerousollicers
on our way back. .(They had to account lor my beaten appearance.) 'Yeah,' a
real lighter."
We soon got to the Narcotics Division cubicle.
"Strip!". gritted the white one, and the vision in my head was his knee returning.
"And ii I see you eat anything I'll break your luckin' hand." I was clean, that's why
I ate the joint. There was nothing to find on my person.
His superior came in and started some work at his desk, uninterested in my
case. This toned down my guys' actions somewhat. I was still trying to look even
more scared than 1 wua.
"All right, put your pants on!" and as soon as I'd done that he handcuffed me to
a chair. Evidently he thought that 1 was considering trying to run out of there, past
iilteen or so cops that were in the outer room, and bust out ol police headquarters.
All with no shoes on.
My request to make a phone call went unanswered until his superior heard it.
Then 1 called collect, and countered my mother's cheerful greeting with "I've
been arrested." The arraignment would be tomorrow morning. And there is no
bail lor drug arrests. Which meant I'd be spending the night in jail.
I was led down to "Identification," where I was lingerprinted and photographed. Ten Polaroids were taken ol me, including two, in color, that the white guy,
that sick bastard, wanted lor himself. 1 guess he wanted to show the wile and kids
the 5' 8", 137 pound terror that he and another guy beat up today.
Then came jail.
One night in jail doesn't really sound like much. We hear all the time ol twenty
and thirty year sentences, and one day sounds rather trilling. But it's not.
It was seventeen hours ol stench, cold, and the wails ol cursing drunks and
street vermin. Jail, the great common denominator, brought me into contact with
people 1 would never want to go near. They were seventeen long hours.

On Our Side
Bob Mayer
To the Editor:
In the Friday October 4 issue of the ASP, I
incorrectly attributed a remark to Phillip
Sirotkin, Vice President of Academic Affairs.
The article, which examined student input
into the tenure system, quoted the VicePresident as having said that he rarely "finds
himself on the same side of the fence as
students." Recalling the conversation I had
with Df .'Sirotkin 1 remember having said that
"I guess it is rare that you lindyoursellon the
same side of the fence as students". The VicePresident noting that I intended it as a joke
said something'like "I guess so."
by Barbara Fischkin
here's a book I read, a long time ago, that takes place in the Fall in a small
northern seaside town.
Everything is almost desolate. There are a few shopkeepers still around
boarding up the salt water taffy and hot dog stands. A few more people are on the
boardwalk catching their last breath of "good salt air" while one or two diehards
on the sand watch the dark blue ocean which only recently has become too rough for swimming.
1 was thinking about that book as I drove towards the beach one brisk Sunday
late in September.
Only . . . I was in New York, the beach was in Brooklyn, and the "town" was
something called Sheepshead Bay. And that made all the difference.
Business As Usual
It was 50 degrees on the day before autumn began, and Emmons Avenue,
which runs parallel to the bay and is a good four blocks from the beach itself, was
one overpopulated, newly thriving "combination fishmarket-ice cream parlourclambar" after another. At the end of it all was "Lundy's", a seafood restaurant,
standing since 1932 and out-surviving the fad restaurant syndrome despite its
long lines and communal seating arrangements.
Inside, Imust have passed at least a thousand clam chowders before I got to Eddie Doll, a "Lundy's" cashier for fifteen years.
"Oh y e a h . . . today's a slow day. We usually serve five thousand on Sunday. It's
busy from Mother's Day to Labor Day and then it slows down."
There were about five people|waiting to pay. • ..and it seemed busy to me—so I
made my way ouf again through the clam chowders (someof which had turned to
Lobster Newburgs), and got back to the street.
It was worse there. Business was so good that no one even had time to talk. In
between the crabs and the bluefish and the blackfish and the people at "Randazzo's Fish Market" I finally found Mrs, Randazzo.
"Not today. I'm too busy. Maybe during the week. Anybody you want'll talk to
you."
Apparently they didn't need the publicity.
It was the same thing with "Joe" who owned the "two scoops pleaze" ice cream
stand, except he was more apologetic and bought me off with butter walnut.
Plastic Bag Annie
Discouraged and just about ready to cross the street, I noticed what had to be
the only person on that block who wasn't buying or selling. A sorry, homeless old
woman with long greying hair, garbage can clothes and her life's possessions in
a few satchels—she(was a replica of Manhattan's "Paper Bag Annie." Her bags
were plastic and that said a lot more about the neighborhood than it did about
her.
She would talk to me.
Wrong. She had just told a little girl, "What Daddy, that's not your Daddy. That's
some goddamn old man from ancient times." And she didn't have very much
more for me. lust a suspicious look at my pad and pen, and a shriek of, "YOU'RE A
T
MURDERER LIKE ALL THE REST OF THEM!"
Across the street, however, life was very different. There were just as many people and business was being done, but they were other people and it was not the
same business.
An organization called "All Community Arts" was sponsoring an art show and
sale. Every exhibit had a sign saying "please browse" and everybody wanted to
talk,
Sam Chaikofsky grabbed me first.
"You see this painting, it's a century cactus. That's copied from a real one.
When they bloom they smell so bad that you have to wear a gas mask."
He went on to discuss his problems, problems that appeared to be common to
most of the community artists.
"Sometimes I get a lemon and sometimes I get lucky. But, you know what gets
me mad? When they come over and say that their six year old kid can do the
same thing. That really annoys me. Especially since 1 can't do this bra living. I'm
a photostat operator, I have to make a living."
Happy to finally hear someone go beyond the superficialities, I listened until
some photographs caught my eye.
The sign above them said:
"Hy Dareff's photographs will be seen in a forthcoming Warner Brother's motion picture, 'Dogday Afternoon,' starring Al Pacino."
Actually it was Mrs. Dareff who did all the talking and, I suspect, a lot more ol
the shooting than she was allowed to own up to. She explained that the
photographs would be mounted on the wall of a bank on "Avenue P" which is
robbed in the movie.
I mingled awhile and even helped one old woman decide which Hy Dareff
photograph she reallylikedbest.Finally tired, now from too much talking, I moved
further down the bay, just to watch.
"Fish Story"
The lishing boats were coming in with their bluefish catches and their big fish
stories. A lot of people were welcoming their relatives back to shore and as the

Tony Cosentino was swabbing the deck of his tiny "Wahoo III" when two aunts,
four cousins and an uncle appeared on the dock.
"Hey Tonneeeel!"
"Ah my family. Hey—dHn' know my family was gonna come."
"Hey Tonnee—Ya got anymore fish?"
"No more fish—but I'll getcha some."
"Ahhh Tonnee!"

What Some Polls Say . . .
Mamie Eisenhower?
NEW YORK (AP) Miss? Mrs.? or Ms.?
Only 14 percent of the women surveyed in a
national opinion poll said they preferred the
feminist designation Ms. However. 29 percent
of single women and 33 percent of separated
or divorced women prefer Ms., the poll said.
The American Women's Opinion Poll, conducted by the Roper Organization, surveyed
about 3,000 women on a variety of subjects,
with a separate poll of 1,000 men for statistical
purposes.
The organization said the results of the poll
were statistically valid within 2 percent as
national averages.
A good marriage is still the dream of
American women, but they want some
changes made. Communal living, living alone
or living with Someone without being married
were viewed as the most satisfying way of life
by only 3 percent of the women interviewed.
But while 96 percent of women still see
marriage as the best way to live, the poll
reported that more than half now want to
combine marriage, children and careers. Sixteen percent of the women interviewed said
wives should not vow to obey their husbands.
Love is still the major reason women cite for
getting and stayingmarried. But after love, the
poll indicated some shifts in marital priorities.
Personal compatibility in marriage—being
able to talk together about feelings—is more
important to women than sexual fidelity, having children or financial security, the poll
reported.
Three out of five women under 30 years old
said one or two children was enough, according to the poll. Premarital sex was viewed as
immoral by 53 percent of the women, down
from 65 percent in 1970.
l-'or the first time, a majority of women indicated support for the women's movement
goal of strengthening the status of women in
society. Fifty-seven percent of American
women favor such efforts now, compared with
48 percent in 1972 and 40 percent in 1970,the
poll said.
Mamie Eisenhower and Walter Cronkite
headed the list of people most respected by
women. Former President Richard M. Nixon
ranked tenth on the list of respected men in the
poll, which was conducted in May, prior to his
resignation.
Black social activist Angela Davis was ranked as Ihe least respected woman by 53 percent
oi the women polled.
However, 39 percent of the black women interviewed rated her the woman they most
respect. Blacks consititued 11 percent of the
women surveyed.
Presidential Popularity
dd it! A perfect Gerald Ford cancaiure!
PRINCETON, N. J.
(AP) President
Ford's approval rating hasdroppd 21 percentage points since he took office, according to
the Gallup Poll.
The survey shows half of those questioned
saying they approve of the way Ford is handling is job, 28 percent disapproving and 22 per
cent expressing no opinion.
The current ratine represents the sharpest
decline for any president in his first two
months in office.
In a poll taken just after Ford took office in
August, 71 percent said they approved of the
way Ford was assuming the nation's
leadership. Only 3 per cent said they dispproved, and 26 per cent said they were undcided.
Ford's rating fell off five percentage points
between the first poll and one taken early in
September.
The latest poll was taken after Ford par-
doned former President Nixon on Sept. 8 and
before Ford presented his economic program
to Congress a month later.
The pardon was the chiefcausc of Ford's
decline in popularity, and the nation's
economy was another important factor, according to the polling organization.
A special poll taken just after the pardon
found the public opposed to it by a two-to-one
margin.
Other polls have showed that most
Americans consider the economy to be the
nation's biggest problem with nearly half of
them predicting a depression such as that of
the I930's.
Ford retains the approval of a greater
percentage of younger adults and Republians
than of older persons, Democrats or independents.
The latest poll was taken Sept. 27-30.
The Godless Britons

British people believe in Cod, according to a
public opinion poll published Sunday.

In response to Senator Eastland's "startling" warning that, if patriotic Americans

Inflation worries statesmen, economists, business leaders, and everyone trying to make ends meet. Students are aware of it as they pay tuition fees or
rent. Like most problem's of today, inflation existed in classical antiquity
During most of the third century A.D. the Roman Empire was dote to

lion were steadily increasing, while productivity, trade, and population!*?
tually decreased Thegovernmentresponded by raisingtaxes and debasingihe
currency. This, in turn, caused a sharp rise in prices. The economic situation
became so bad that peasants deserted their fields, merchants refused to
accept debased currency, and thegovernment collected some of its taxes in
kind.
Periodic efforts to reform the currency provided only temporary relief. A
bold and unique attack on rampant inflation was finally undertaken by the
emperor Diocletian (285-305 A. p.), who issued his famous Edict of Prices
in 301 A. D.] This edict established maximum prices and wages for more than
a thousand articles or services; it provided severe penalties for offenders,
eluding the death penalty. Nevertheless, the edict was a failure, as the people
ignored or defied it. Merchants withdrew their wares from the openmarket;a
black market, developed, and the flight from money to goods continued.
Diocletian's successor Constantine (306-337 A.D.) revoked the edict.
Such other reform measures of Diocletian were far more successful. His
Edict on Prices illustrates the ancient world's lack of economic sophistication, but provides us with the single most important source of information on
Roman economic life.

Lunch Mandarin Style
by Sandy Ellenbogen
and Melissa Caust
The Peking Restaurant offers a
wide range of dishes prepared in the
Mandarin style of Chinese cooking.
Mandarin differs from Cantonese in
that noodles are the staple 'ather
than rice. Wheat is found in abundance in northern China. Marco
Polo introduced spaghetti to Italy
upon his return from the Orient.
Mandarin also employs holterspices
than Cantonese: chili peppers,
scullions, curry, and str anise: these
arc felt to have medicinal powers. In
addition to the stir-fried foods common in Cantonese cooking (e.g. fried
rice, chow mein, pepper steak), cold
dishes, interesting soups, longcooked meats, and casseroles are
popular. Wc recently sampled a
representative selection of Mandarin
dishes at the Peking and found the
restaurant to be generally uninteresting.
A typical cold dish is pickled cab-
bage (7Sc). When properly prepared
this spicy dish is anything but cold,
however here it tasted like slightly
over-peppered cole slaw.
3 Assorted Flavors
Next we tried a promising Three
Assorted Flavors Delicacy soup
($2.50 for 2). To our dismay, we
received a tasteless broth accented
with some s t r i p s of ham,
wintermelon, and a third equally
non-descript "delicacy." One good
note, however, was the noodles
which accompanied the soup. They
were freshly fried, crisp, and
delicious. This started the inevitable
dippingol noodles in Iheduck sauce.
Main dishes run about $4.00
apiece, hut since dishes should he

to share dishes,and combine with

pointed to find a carbon copy of the
Cantonese version, it was satisfactory but lacked distinction.
Curry chicken ($3.73) was a large
portion of chicken in a fiery curry
sauce. We were pleasantly surprised
by this and decided that we had not
given Ihe restaurant a fair chance.
Therefore we returned and sampled
beancake casserole ($4.50), which
someone had recommended to us.
I h e casserole consisted of soup with
bcancake and Chinese cabbage and
although very generously filled, very
disappointingly bland. Bean cake, a
soybean product which is light
brown and of a jellied texture, does
not look appetizing. Its flavor is innocent, however and a suitable
supplement to more strongly
flavored foods. Hut in this case it was
the main attraction, and as a result
the casserole made a poor showing.
Moo Shoo Pork
Our final try was moo shoo pork
($2.95), a stir-fried mixture of shredded pork, vegetables and egg, spread
with scallions and peppers. It is
traditionally served with thin pancakes •( 15e each) a dollop of the mixture is placed on the pancake, which
is then rolled up and eaten. The Peking version relied much too heavily
on soy sauce, which drowned out the
flavors of the various other ingredients.
The Peking offers a somewhat
better bay at lunch. A selected
number of dishes are offered at
significant savings, e.g. chicken
curry at $2.50, and the food is
[generally more carefully prepared.
Shanghai Better
The Peking is conveniently
located near Ihe busline heading uptown. The food is not bad, but we
believe the Shanghai. (799 Central
Avenue) which wc reviewed
previously offers more tasty and
authentic food.

Gridders Sink Buccaneers 75-6
by JOB Lafayette
Albany State, a little upset for being dropped in the Lambert Bowl
rankings despite beating R1T last
weekend, came out to prove their
worth; Poor Maritime, who is in
only its second year of varsity ball, as
they were the wrong team in the
wrong place at the wrong time. The
Danes were just too much; a tribute
to those who arealsoin their second
year.
On a chilly Friday night in Buzzard's Bay, the Albany State Great
Dane football team won their fourth
consecutive game, by defeating the
Massachusetts Maritime Academy
75-6.
The first few series of the game
were filled with fumbles, interceptions, penalties, and long gains
called back and neither team was
' able to capitalize on the others mistakes. Towards the end of the first
period, Albany recovered a fumble
on their own 36. After QB John Berluzzi was sacked on first down,
fullback Tom DcBlois ripped off
runs of 19 and 44 yards to put the
Danes on the nine. After a carry by
Orin Griffin, DcBlois went up the
middle for one and the Danes first
score.
Albany was on the move again,
when Dave Ahonen came in for a
halfback option, but reversed his
field running for 20 yards, they added 15 more on a penalty, but fumbled
the ball on the 12. The defense came
in and forced a punt. Griffin nut.the
ball twice, the' second time going
around right end for a 40 yard f D.
The third touchdown was scored as
John Bertuzzi teamed up with end
Bob Baxter on two slant patterns,
between the same two defenders; the
second, a 14, yard TD pass.
The Buccaneers got their only
score of the day on a fifty two yard
pass play from Kent Gunther to
Kevin O'Connell with just 2:41 left in
the first half. After captain Arnie
Will blocked the extra point, a Skip
Scurry return set up the last score of
the half as Marvin Perry went off
tackle for 20 yards and six more
points. Al Martin hit his fourth extra
point to make the score 28 to 6 at the
half.
The second half began with Ralph
Naples intercepting u passand returning it to the 28. Bertuzzi passed to
Baxter, who made a great catch tip
toeing in the end zone. At this point.
Coach Kord began taking out
starters and the team continued to
run up the score. Fierce hitting by
the punt coverage team resulted in a
fumble at the 24. On first down
DcBlois ran the 24 yards for his second T D of the game, finishing the
day with 138 yards. Back-up
quarterback Dave Ahonen kept the
ball on the wishbone carrying 16
yards for the Danes'seventh TD.
Passing to try to come back,
Maritime quarterback Gunther was
intercepted by Ray Gay at the 37.
Sowalskie carried three times, one
for. twenty yards, setting up Fred
PoppsTDrun.
- Maritime showed some iife as they
drove 67 yards down the field on a 13
play, six minutes drive only to be
stalled by' the stubborn Dane
defense, which held on four plays, inside the five yard line. Third string
quarterback Dave Duprey came in
with the ball on his own four yard
line and directed a 96 yard scoring
drive, consumated by a 58 yard TD
run by Fran Brunelle. With less than
one minute left in the game, the
Danes got the ball again on an interception by linebacker Don Mion
at the 25. QB Duprey took the ball in
himself to end the (coring, giving
Albany a 75-6 victory.
Despite the tremendous score, the
Dane defense was the story of the
game; They allowed only nine first
downs, and only 220 yards all game.
Although they intercepted four
passes during the game, they seemed,
succeptible to the long pass.
Maritime passer, Gunther, was
largely unable to hit his recievers,
who were usually open, but when he
did they caught three passes for 99
yards. Kicker Al Martin hit 9 of II
extra point and punter Mike Marrin
boomed them for a 36.5 average.
The Dane wishbone was breaking
runners clear for long gains all game,
with 596 yards of total offense, 526
on the ground. Coming back from
injury, John Bertuzzi passed well (35,70 yards, 2 TDs) and worked well
with end Baxter.
Albany State takes on Nichols

Nichols is 3-0-1 and one of the best
schools in Massachusetts. Last year
the Danes lost 14-7 at Nichols, and

Albany Mayor Erastus Corning
suggested Thatcher Homes
in the South End
as a feasible housing alternative.
Finding Haws in the recent Student Association alternate housing proposal,
Albuny Mayor Eraslus Corning suggested that students could live in the
"south end." He declared, however, that he was still "open" to more SA
suggestions.
It now appears thut students living in groups off-campus will not need to
worry about Common Council's housing proposal, if Corning decides to.
sign it, ut least this yeur. If the bill were signed into law, it could not affect
those already living in apartments becuusc of the "grandfather clause,"
similar to the ex post facto law.
Corning met with SA President Pal Curran and Veep Ira Birnbaum Monday to discuss their proposal, bused on square footage. S A disputed Council's bill which limits the people living together und defines a family.
The Mayor said he hud u study done near the Manning Blvd. area, and
found that were the S A proposal to be implemented, that area could have an
influx of nearly 2.000 people. Therefore, the Muyor thought the proposal
unworkable.
Netters Win SUNYAC
The Albany State Great Danes
tennis team is alive and well, and
reigning supreme as the SUN Y Conference Champions for the Fall 1974
season.
The Danes trailed Brockport by
two points, Binghamton by I, going
into the semi-final round, with both
Joe Kestenbaum (First Flight) and
Josh Connell (fourth flight)
eliminated, but came from behind to
win the crown.
Bob Diskin found himself in a
must situation when he took the
court versus Binghamton's Les
Shayne. Diskin'came through with a
big win, beating Shayne 6-3, 7-6.
Next, Mitch Sandler edged Eric
Rossumm (Bing.) to bring the Danes
to within one point of Binghamton.
The Dunes tied the match when
unseeded Dave Denny of Albany
completed a major upset, by
smashing Harold Schutzman (Bing.)
6-2, 6-1.
Stephan Taylor

crown lor the Danes by coming from

Final scores showed Albany first

A Learning Experience...

the books, this law allows any number of non-related people to live together.
