Balow fight: by Mike Seni 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." :! Student e m wM be relegated I 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 right to consult with all "interested parlies" before making ilsdccision.

The "hitch was they didn't think we would lake iil all the way" to outside arbitration, said Uuchaltcr.

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. ; ** lf-> »"• " i • 1 Common>Cau$* Lobbyut Urge$Cl*an*Up •• ' *--•-,.•• -.

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.

"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 things I still plan to do th.re." The veteran foreign service officer said her only worry was that the I S embassy would assign a bodyguard to her. "I sure wouldn't want thai." she 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 Monday to personally ask their congressman to pass the federal muss transit bill that would for the first lime provide operating monies for their lines Rep.

PAGE TWG ALBANY STUDENT PRESS OCTOBER 15, 1974 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.

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." —. ••— Y - • • . . ' • ' " "'',' ' ••> V:i ','. T- '-• ' " 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 later that the worker "didn't know" and that he wap' ast going over to tell him." To insurelhatthecounty Boards of Elections receive and accept forms from other counties, students should send their applications via registered mail. New York State studentialsooftenareforcedtocarry on lengthy correspondence with their home Boards of Elections and request an absentee voter registration form. Once received, the form must be filled out, witnessed and: signed by the applicant, and postmarked to the , home Board of Election before October 10. Some counties require that a student's absentee status be verified by an authorized campus administrator, Request an absentee ballot application. This request may be made on the absentee registration form or by sending a postcard to the home county Board of Elections. 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. Students who need help in obtaining an absentee ballot may call Bob Schiffer of the Carey for Governor Campaign at (212) 575-0200 or Mrs. Whittlesy of the Republican State Committee at (518)462-2601,6x1.40. 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."

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 vigilance of the House and Senate investigative committees may prevent that ascension, but the probability of that is slight.

Naturally, that is not the normal way oi things, as the housing policy with regard to independents and frats lags behind the 1954Topeka,Kansas Board oi Education Supreme Court decision. By methods of their own design, brothers live in segregation, eat in segregation, and more often than not, socialize in segragation. But I wouldn't be in this situation were it not for the crucial fact that the membership of Greek organizations is rapidly declining. In orderto simply fill up the sections once dominated and totally populated by frats, the groups h a v e resorted to allowing independents to live among them. *&-*>*> by David Lerner housands of pillars stand in silent support of this, the world's largest poured concrete foundation. The pillars are obedient. They are despairingly the same, evenly spaced throughout, without variation. The transience | of our existence heie is cruelly magnified by their permanence. Silent, the pillars watch, and present us with an ever-changing, ever-repeating pattern of time. Tempusfugiritissaid, but at Albany, time tends to drag. Werejt not for the pillars (and Friday's ASP'Preview pages) how would we know what to do with the spare time that seems to be r a p i d l y d i m i n i s h i n g from our schedules? It is the rare pillar whose perfection remains untouched by mimeographed news item; "Transcendental Meditation — meeting (Tuesday, September 17,." The most prevalent form of billboard signs are, like one recent controversial entry, 'The I Brothers of STB and the squaws of Senca Hall invite all university men to a party Sunday, September 22, at 9 p.m.,' announcements by fraternities and sororities of parties, mixers, and kegs.

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? Are rushees masochistic? SamDe Govanni is treasurer of TXO, has been a member since freshman ltnil-;<v- owfe^ZIz^ — — year, and is now a junior. By any standards, he is a traditionalist on Iralemal ethics. He is of the belief that a man will identify with his group longui ii he has to suffer before getting in. Many other members ! 1X0 however, do not share his views Standards of admission have relaxed in general and in TXO, it was easy lo see the change. Hell Nighl, theonce lea red even! on campus, the night when everyone expected the entire Greek population to go rampaging tin.ugh the quads, has tamed considerably over the years. Replacing Hell Night as the rowdy Greek night of the year, Ihi • niqhl ol infofmaf initiation is given that dubious honor. The process involved in the initiation of the rushee varies greatly from one fraternity to Ihe next STB is,known lor its policy ol kidnapping its rushees, often driving theineul of the state, with nothing on other than underwear, and financed with an ever 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 his soul. Contrary to the myth 3till bo ing perpetuated Irom within Irats, this is the one and only instance ol physical lorce used on the pledges. During lha PA' S4P, ALBANY STUDENT PRESS 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 ALBANY year E . O . P . stops paying your way through school. That's when most of us • on the program have to quit. Man, it's tough." Living with the frat, for Soto, is far quieter than independent life. You Can Count On The Guys Jim Blackisafreshman.andheisnot in the frat. But he wants to be. He is from Holland Patent, New York, between Utica and Rome. "1 want to be in this Irat because it seems to be a place where you can count on any ol the guys lor a iavor. You know what' I mean?" As pari of the rigamarole connected with joining the frat, Black attended all the rush functions and the invitation-only informal and formal. 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 manager of many Student Association funded groups for the past ten years. The business manager of the ASP has been an inherited position for those years. Les Zuckerman is business manager of the Torch, \Viewpoint, Photo Service, Inter-Fraternity Council and the ASP. Last year's business imanager, Jerry Albrecht, iB this'year's Student Association Comptroller. "And the beat goes on..." 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. Can the Farmworkers Lose? The Mowing article appeared in the teen years to succeed and not just a hit issue of the Washington Park few good years.

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. But the fact that the farmworkers have withstood them so well and at that, in Butone is hurt by the truth ol thisN, Y. the face of an unprecedented act ol Times Magazine essay as well as by its Teamster sabotage, practically unfalseness or ignorance, particularly matched lor its brutality and racism, is when in the process history is in itsell a line tribute to their matchless desregarded.

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 no "John Wayne I screamed out, "I'll give it to you! Just don't hit me!", thinking the 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. Seeing that the most damage from this upcoming beating would be in the As soon as I stood up outside the car, one black gloved fist headed towards my stomach, and being culled, I couldn't attempt to block it. It landedin the solar plex- stomach, 1 moaned something bout having a bad stomach, hoping it would steer him away lor fear ol killing me and having to explain it. So the lists moved us and 1 was down. elsewhere, to the lace and kidneys. My ears were boxed. My kidneys were pummelled. My head was pushed into a cement pillar. All this time my hands are i&H '.: •• • _ handcuffed together in back of me, so I would do nothing. Then the gloves came oil, the trunk was closed and I was ready to be taken upstairs. 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. Next morning atnine thirty.wewereled' intocourtand a multi-hour afiairbegan. I'll spare the details, but I walked out, with a suspended sentence, later thatday.

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 boats got smaller the families got larger. 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!" From Ihe boats it was easy to get to the bridge across the bay and eventually the ocean. Well... instead of two die-hards on the sand I found twenty. But, there was also room to run and when you looked around you realized that the gulls really did outnumber the people and the sky was truly better than any you'd seen in a long time.

I'cter G. I'ollak Foundations of Education FDept. Michael Sakoff 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.

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.

Easing and Pressing •i I - I I « — » - •>•• •— — — i — i 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 eaten family style, it is often possible to share dishes,and combine with soup to bring down the price.

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.

Who ; aping o must inow a ALBAMY snmsm PBESS ?AGE TUTSES sports Stat* UnlwHity ol New York at Albany FRIDAY Tuaaday, October 18. 1974 University ol Maw York at JUbaayVol, LXI No. 3 3 October 1 8 , 1 0 7 4 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 College next Saturday at home. Nichols is 3-0-1 and one of the best schools in Massachusetts. Last year the Danes lost 14-7 at Nichols, and would like to turn the tables this year while impressing the Lambert Bowl writers. 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 clinched the crown lor the Danes by coming from behind t o , beat Bob Hewitt (Brockport) 4-6,6-3,6-3. Albany's third flight doubles' team added icing to the cake by knocking off the Brockport enty 2-6,6-1,6-1. Final scores showed Albany first with with 25 points, Binghamton second with 23, and Brockport and defending champion Onconta tied for third with 20 points. This caps the netters season, that saw them go undefeated in regular season play. Coach Bob Lewis and his players certainly have a great deal to be proud of. no reason. After the game, Lulik uprrouched Dune Couch Schieffelin. in hopes of udministcring u rcprimund for the criticism he was receiving. Lalik waved his finger inSchicffelin'sface. When Schieffelin succeeded in getting the linger moved away, the ref accidemully hit Albuny scorekeeper Stii Shalct. Shulct responded, und it looked like a little Mudison Square Garden action was developing. Shalct won the match on a TKO, us Lalik bucked down und left the field. Typical of the "knitpicking" administered by the officials was a dispute over the exuet location of irrr Albany direct kick. The referee wanted it at point A, I.eroy.Aldrich liked point B heller.'The difference' between the two spots was six inches and a large divet at the refs location, Any intelligent official allows the' hull, to he moved that lypc.of" dis*' tance to help improve p|ay, but not Lalik. who ordered Aldrich lo keep it at A, and threatened lo administer a warning to the rather frustrated Aldrich, who hud no choice hut to comply. Wednesday, the Hooters travel to Onconta for a key SUNY Conference game which will be broadcast live on WSU A ut 3 p.m. The loss to Hamilton seems to have unified the Booters, und hopefully, has awakened u few individuuls'to the need lor team play.

Coming said he would huvc another study done in the Washington Park area. However. Curran thought the Muyor hud u point, so SA officials will go back to the drawing board to try and come up with a new housing blueprint. Curran said he may proposeunother bill still bused on the spuce idcu, but that would vary according to the zone: in one-family houses the square footage per person would be higher than in the two-family homes or in multiple family dwellings. Corning said, however, he is still willing to listen to more S A proposals. W L f '»•• PROBE Attacked, But Upheld son usuully abstains when his/her vote would not make a difference), Steve Meyer (Commuters), Jon Levenson (Slate) and Andy Dolan (Commuters). Lew Fidler (Indian) introduced an immediate motion to object to consideration of the bill wus defeuted. Councilpcrson Candi Muyer (Commuters) proceeded to attack the bill, not on its content but on the way it had originated. . According lo Ms. Mayer, some Council members and non-members hud held secret committee meetings in order to keep the bill a secret. In addition, Ms, Muycr angrily asserted that certain Council people hud leaked privileged information to non-members, and proceeded to demand the Impeachment of Andy Goldstein (Stale), one of the bill's introducers. Ms. Mayer was reminded thai since another motion wus pending, hers was out of order. Sandy Hoclner of the Speakers' Forum then suggested that il hud been improper "Atmosphere of Deception" for Council lo discuss the mutter in Central Council bill 7475-51, Executive Session in the first plnce "Deletion of Project PROBE," was since this, of all issues, should not be introduced on the grounds that "the kepi secret from the students.

PROBE was approved as part of the Executive Branch three weeks ago ufler a protruded debate in Executive Session. Since anything discussed in Executive Session automatically becomes classified, little first-hand information on PROBE isavailable. A descriplion of its purpose can be found in Article V1.6 of the Organization of the Executive Blanch: "This group shall be responsible for researching mailer of interest to the students." Indications lire thai PROBE's purpose is to uncover when necessary information on cerlain individuals within the Administration and to enact covert investigations of student grievance.

Both goals came on defensive lapses by the record, but a 5-1-1 overall mark. Three factors combined to do the Danes, und both were really "garBooters in: a super effort by bage goals." Interestingly enough, Hamilton; injuries to several Dunes; the best scoring attempts the hosts had, were stopped constantly by the and a nice dose of homc-reffing.

Habcr suw the bill merely as an effort to uppeuse Council. Andy Goldstein moved to add a provision to the bill stipulating that ull PROBE findings must be reported lo Central Council us well us lo the President. Debute then centered around the question of whether the need for secrecy was important enough to leave the president in virtually lull control of PROBE. Council passed a While Ballot in authorizing an expenditure of up to $1000 in order lo maintain desegregated parking. Debate seemed to indicate that Council disagrees with President Cumin's desires to avoid a parking strike. Central Council will hold an election for Vice Chairperson within the next two weeks to select a replacement for Eric Klein, who bus become chairperson due to the resignation of David Coyne. Thatcher Homes as Alternative Corning sent a Idler to President Bcnczet, said Curran, stating that the high rise apartment complex Thatcher Homes might be used for additional sludeiil dwellings. With 525 apartments. 192 of which are occupied now. Corning anticipates about 600 students could move in. The neighborhood, in the south end by the river, is not exuetly the choicest neighborhood, said Curran. A Learning Experience... Corning thought Ihis would he u great opportunity for "social studies" students lo "learn about the inner city." According to Corning, the rent is cheap, and he envisioned some kind of an arrangement with the Office of General Services (OGS), to huvc a bus run to thai area. Because the proposal wus not pussed until alter the beginning of the new semester. Corning said that it would not affect sludcnlsalrcadylivingintheir apartments. As well, he contradicted MorrisEiss ol the Housing Codes Commission who said that since the Belle Tcrrcdecision on Long Island, no more than two non-related people could live together. Corning said that the law as it now stands says thai the definition ol a family is those people who share u housekeeping unit. Pussed in 1970 and still on the books, this law allows any number of non-related people to live together. SA Wins Support In submitting the alternate proposul. Student Association has won the support of Union College. Said Currun, "Something we haven't had time to do is contact the other local colleges and usk for tneir help. The law would affect them too." I he limes-Union, a local Albany newspaper, editorially supported theSA proposal saying, "Albany Stale students are inking the proper course in establishing a good working relationship with the community in which they must study und work and live."
