Soc Department Chairman
Faces Reappointment Turmoil
by Bob Msyer
"The whole thing is about to blow
up. Either the administration makes
a decision now or they are going to
spend the rest of the decade picking
up the pieces." The faculty member
did not want to be quoted by name,
but summed up the overriding sentiment of the Sociology Department,
that Chairman Ray Forer must not
huve his position us chairman renewed.
The faculty had been informed
that a decision on Forer's renewal as
chairman would come by November
I, but, Vice President for Academic
Affairs Philip Sirotkin claims that
was not the case. "There will be no
decisions until after the external
review committee hands in their
report." He said thai such a report
would be released in the middle of
next semester.
In many respects the Sociology
Department is no different from
other departments within this university. The department luces
serious cutbacks in funding, because
of across-the-board budget cuts this
year. Junior faculty members are
concerned about tenure, especially
in light of the tight job market. In
January, a group of "well-known"
sociologists are scheduled to
evaluate the department, and their
critique will make suggestions about
the program, particularly the
Masters und the PhD programs.
However, in other respects, the
Sociology Department's situation
appears to be unique. It suffers from
more than the usual squabbling, personality conflicts, and internal
politicking that are inherent in
The Student Press interviewed a
score of faculty and students and
found, among other things, a crippling case of low morale. When we
guaranteed that no one's name
would be used in the story and that
our primary concern was todiscover
the reasons for the present and
former low morale, faculty
members, students, and others
associated with the department
began to talk freely about the situation.
F o r apprehensive graduate
students und untenurcd faculty
members, the Student
investigation was particularly
threatening. One graduate student
remarked, "Our degrees are on the
line. We fear reprisal if we speak out
against the man." Another student
said, "We grad students have a
different interest than Ihe faculty.
We huve lo deal with each other, and
we arc self-serving. We want to get
through our degrees. Graduate
studentsarc easily intimidated. Thai
is part of the academic gume."
Hut for muny it wus more than a
game. The tenured faculty was more
open and more critical of Chairman
Forer, clearly a majority believed
that the department needs a chairman who can avoid alienating as
many people us Forer has.
One faculty member asserted,
"Speaking up against the chairman
may hurt the department at a lime
just prior to external review, but we
have been silent too long. I have seen
students abused, talent wasted, und
money thrown down the rat hole."
Another faculty member admitted
that "forer has done some good by
bringing in quality people" but went

on to say, however, that "he is u
ruthless person and his style offends

Ihc faculty hud been told by Dean
of Social and Behavioral Sciences,
Richard Kendall, to comment on
retention of forer as chairman. Acc o r d i n g to several of the
department's personnel, Ihc outcome of this vote was 14 to 2 against

Ray Forer would become Ihe
chairman of the Sociology Department u year later. In the three years
that he would serve, Forer would
succeed in seriously harming morale
within his department. But Forer
could not have accomplished this
without the benign help of an administration unwilling lo recognize
problemswhen they were developing.

recommends that more people consider craft-oriented careers if they

further the training of craftsmen, he
has been urging the International
Brotherhood of Electrical Workers
to found its own system of Universities which would be partly
vocational and partly academic.
After forty yearsof labor, Morgan
reflects favorably on his career in
construction. "Construction is never
boring. One never approaches the
same problem in the same way. You
get immediate returns on your accomplishments. You areableto see a
project develop from the raw
material stage to a living entity
within two or three years. This
demands constant imagination and
innovation to solve both technical
and practical problems. Construction is .outdoor work, thus it keeps
one physically active. It is always
changing and requires keeping up on
new trends, especially electricity."
Comparing the two distinct
phases of his academic career,
Morgan feels there was more insistence to develop and compose
written thoughts in essay form in the
thirties and prefers this method to
the prevalent Multiple Choice Tests

Sen. George McGovern, the 1972 Democratic

Some Republicans seemed inclined to give the

The burden of producing may fall most heavily on the

(ZNS) Former C.I. A. agent Philip Agce has charged that the Central Intelligence Agency was deeply involved in the overthrow of two reformist
governments in Ecuador in the early I960's.
Agee. who is now living in England and writing a book on his C.I.A. activities, spells out the agency's alleged involvement in Ecuadorinan interview
in the current Rolling Stone.
Agec states that he was assigned as a "case officer" for the C.I.A. in
Ecuador In I960, and operated on a $500,000 (dollar) budget which was used
lo manipulate political events in that country.
Secret Destabilizing Programs
He states thai Ihc C.I.A. decided to created political desturbunces in
Ecuador against two reformist Presidents -Velasco and Aroscmena—
because of their pro-Cuba leanings.
Agee reports that covert "destabilizing" programs were carried out by the
C.I. A. with the help of several high-placed Ecuadorian officials who were on
the C.I.A. payroll. Among those on the payroll, says Agee, was a member of
the Ecuadoran legislature who later became Ecuador's Vice President.

SA Lawyer Leventhal Handles Landlord Complaint*
by Roianne Reiieb
Behind the typical law firm title
"Rosenblum and Leventhal," works
an energetic woman attorney Linda
Leventhal. "1 love every minute of
my work with students," she says,
her voice r e s o u n d i n g with
enthusiasm on a rainy, Monday
morning. She settles back in a brown
leather chair in her small office, a
toy-like, humorous statuette With
the caption "Sue the Bastard" sitting
atop her desk.
"We're a firm of lawyers ranging
.in ages from 28-36," Leventhal, an
Albany Law School graduate, says
of herself and her four male
colleagues who are retained by the
Student Association to provide free
legal advice to university students.
"We're young enough to relate to the

Avenue daily. Besides advising
students, the lawyers have their own
private practices.
Landlord Complaints
The most common student complaint Leventhal receives is against
landlords. "When a student calls, the
first thing I'll ask him is, 'Who's your
landlord?' IVc come to know the
good ones and the bad ones," she
says. Most students call Leventhal
for advice on breaking leases and
pressuring landlords to make needed
repairs in apartments.
Because of the large number of
student complaints, Leventhal does
not represent students in court. "It
would be impractical to defend every
student," she says, "in cases where
one student complains about
another, how does one defend both
students in court?" she questions. "1
advise a student on how to initiate a
legal action or defend himself
against one." Leventhal also
arranges bail for any student who
has been arrested.
"Students win the most cases in
small claims courts," Leventhal continues, her eyes wide with interest
from behind gray tinted glasses. "If a
cleaning service ruins a student's
jacket, I'll advise him to file his own
suit and prepare a defense. The
process is simple in small claims
court because no rules of evidence
exist. It's satisfying for the student to
see justice at work."
Each student lawyer is both a
general practitioner and a specialist.
"We're all uniquely qualified," she
quips. While Rosenblum deals with

criminal cases, Leventhal specializes
in domestic relationships, particularly divorces, separations, and
child custody.
"Divorce cases are nerve racking
but interesting," she states. "Many
women seek my legal counsel
because I'm a female, but just at
many men ask for my help too. I
think they see me as a mother image."
"A lawyer's first obligation in a
divorce case is to try to save the
marriage," Leventhal says, her jovial
expression becoming serious. "I've
had many cases where all it took was
a little bit of talking between the husband and the wife to end the divorce
proceedings. If counsel fails, a
lawyer is then responsible for making an equitable settlement."
She pauses, thinks, and identifies
another area that poses legal tangles
for the student: the Telephone Company. Five years ago, twenty five
telephones on campus were accidentally tied up to the university
switchboard. The students using
these phones were not being billed
for their calls, and took advantage of
the situation by calling such places as
South America. At the end of the
year, the telephone company discovered their mistake and sent out
bills of $800 and $1000. "The
students were legally bound to pay,"
she said.
A coughing spell interrupts
Leventhal, so she sips water from a
little dixie cup. Unperturbed, she
continues, "If a person moves out of
his suite or apartment without paying his share of the telephone bill, the
other inhabitants are responsible for

Furor over Forer
l/FW9 the boycott,
Teamsters and Gallo
Because of the actions of its chairman, the Sociology Department is coming apart at
the seams. The controversy building within the department threatens to tear its foundations away due primarily to intense intra-departmental dislike for Ray Forer the
Department Chairman. The situation in the department can only grow worse, unless
President Benezet decides to begin the search for a new chairman. The already crippled
department is trying to bind itself together—at least until after the State Education
Department sends in its scholars to rate the department. Students do not need to be
strung along for the ride by, the Administration which appears to be waiting until at
least January before committing itself and the University to another three year
renewal. Come January they will probably re-appoint this man who has shown a
record of intimidation and abuse of his firing powers by eliminating thoe who speak
out against him.
Forer admits he may have been in error in some of his past actions. "Perhaps my
wording was a bit harsh in some cases. I would apologize for that, but I do not think the
substance of anything I said was in error." He was referring to several letters of
transmittal to the Council on Promotions and Continuing Appointments in which he
stooped to personal insults against people who were up for either tenure or promotion.
He has put at least one letter of apology into one department member's file, but this
name-calling indicates an unprofessional manner (at best) in approaching his job.
Department members feel more than uncomfortable around the man. Forer pins the
blame for this attitude on four tenured faculty who are out to "get him." But it appears
that more than simply those four are opposed to what has been described as his
"ruthless" tactics. The problem is that the junior faculty members do not want to say
anything, for fear of being denied tenure, and the graduate students are afraid to openly criticize the man, for fear that their degrees will be jeopardized. Six junior faculty
members once criticized Forer for not allowing them to participate in the selection
process for a new chairman. Not one of these six is now teaching at SUN YA: all were
subsequently denied reappointment, before they even reached tenure review.
By no means is the administration clean in this whole affair. The name of Sirotkin
and Kendall continually reappear wherever there is a question of denial of a faculty
member's academic rights. In this case, Sirotkin ignored protests by senior faculty
members over the way the department was being run. They did not listen to grievances
by faculty who complained about treatment within the department.
The situation within this department is in some respects akin to that of other
departments, but other departments do not have the chairman, who some feel may not
be able to get tenure at another university. They do not have a chairman who uses intimidation and coercion to make people agree to his policies. They do not have a chairman who is afraid of anyone who he thinks could look better than him in an evaluation.
They do not have a chairman who openly admits he does not know the new methods in
his': discipline.
It is now up to the administration. Will they keep this man who uses phrases like a
"caricature of an academic" to describe his colleagues. Will they continue to condone
the actions, merely because the power of the chairmanship is behind him, or will they
seek someone new, someone else from the department, who could come in with a
strong background, someone who could remedy the battered department and construct one that does not have to spend time rebutting accusations their chairman
The answer to those questions is self-evident. The ad ministration - President Benezet
and Vice-President Sirotkin - must decide to deny reappointment. But this is not
enough, they must also account for their failure to respond to complaints from faculty
members, complaints voiced three years ago and longer.
Post Script
It is curious that in light of the trauma of Watergate, due in great part to the efforts at
its cover-up, that the administration would take such great pains to conceal discontent
within its walls. Surely it is no great crime to admit that some administrative and
academic appointments were made in haste, or turned out unsuccessfully. It would be
too much to ask of anyone that every decision be the right one. The cloud of suspicion
only arises at overt attempts to hide the facts, to cover-up.

It Sure Made a Great Play
Introspective. . . .

CBS Elections News Correspondent
Linda Ellerby gave in to the little man's
harried attempts to move her earring to
a point dead center on her left earlobe.
That was the extent of the "test run."
It couldn't progress to her right ear
because Ramsey Clark, with his election eve hopes not yet worn down by
discouraging results, came in and stole
the show.
After things quieted down again
among the Clark supporters gathered
in the Commodore Hotel's Windsor
Boom in New York, Ms. Ellerby said:
A while ago I read a critique by Kate Millet on D. H. Lawrence's
Lady Chatterley's Lover. Usually supportive of feminist writing, I
was, this time, enraged by her inability to see the different levels of
meaning. I believe she mis represented Laurentian characters and
misinterpreted dialogue. She had characters shouting things
where Lawrence had them speaking softly. It's a very different thing
to gently say to a woman "lie down" than it is when you shout at her
to do it.
I think I've just pulled a Kate Millet on Jules Feiffer.I read this
week's cartoon and didn't want it printed. I felt degraded by his
exaggeration and his depiction of such a non-existent stereotype.
He wouldn t put a man in such a useless, stupid role.
But then, isn't thatthe point?Isn't it the women in our society who
don t necessarily sit home and phone people up all day, but spend
their lives in useless pursuits both at home and in the working
world? Pursuits they are pushed into by husbands who ignore them
and watch television all night or bosses who ignore their skills in
very much the same way. Feiffer is an exaggeration. But, maybe
some women will see it and say, "That's an exaggeration of me and
my hfe. Satire, when understood, makes one aware. That's why
Foots are necessary to aid understanding. And, that's why "But
Can She Type?". We hope men and women read them both.

'But Can She Type?
A Real Cherokee Bar-Mitzvah
by Mark Cohen
A young boy'^ dream and nights of sleeplessness on theeveof hisBarMitzvah
may not seem to be of any importance either to him or his rabbi as long as his
voice is clear and his prayer is deep, but to Hal Malmud something was deeply
important in them—something which lasted longer than a day in the synagogue
and that was stronger than his voice as he recited from the Torah.
As I sit in Hal's room on the 20th floor of Eastman Tower on a Friday night in late
September, the reason becomes obvious to me. Hal's long blondish hair is tied up
in braids and a feather is meticulously placed in one of them. A lead eagle
medallion accompanies some beads in circling his neck. As his eyes peer out of
the valley between his cheekbones and his brow I become a bit uneasy. I look
about his.room which is not unlike any other students room (or, more precisely
any other R. A.' s room) in that it contains an overflow of posters placed on the dull
white of the walls, and it has a stereo, records and textbooks.
But there is a difference. On the turntable is a record with chants in a foreign
tongue, en the walls are pictures of proud and crinkly old men and women with
long black hair and brilliant scenery behind them, and in his bookshelves are
books half from his Chinese language and literature classes (where I first met Hal)
and half itvfulfillment of the dream which he has maintained since his 13th birthday and His day in the synagogue. In fact Hal's dream is more alive today than 7
years ago; it is the modern rebirth of the dream if his grandfather, and his grandfather's people—the Cherokee.
While 6n his father's side Hal is descended from a long line of Russian lews, it is
his mother's father who has the proloundest influence upon him. His mother's
grandfatherwas one of many Cherokees who were forcibly evicted from their
native landB in the Southeastern United States in the 1830's. He and 15,000
others of his people travelled what was called the "Trail of Tears"; a long overland
trek, to Oklahoma. The tribe was nearly shattered by this. It took the 6,000 people
who lived many years to regain their spirit.
Hal Malmud's one desire is to "be adopted by a tribe; it may not be a Cherokee
but other Indians can adopt you into their social order as a brother."
Hal leans back on his dormitory bed and begins to talk. The lights of the city of
Albany shineithrough into his room. From a few flights below us, perhaps on the
17th or 18th floor music is filtering through. The music is loud but it begins to fade
out in my mind as Hal talksof the actual dream he had when he was 13—the very
same age when an Indian youth is supposed to go on a "vision quest"—4 days of
• fasting and prayer until he learns of his true spirit. Seven years later when he did
go on a vision quest, a similar vision came to tell him of his destiny.
"In the dream I was walking through a forest, kind of wandering through it.The
lorest was dark and had the smell of deacy anddeath. In thedarkness I stumbled
over a fallen log; a chipmunk came over to ask me if I was hurt. I said no.
"As I began to stand up many more animalscame to see me. There was a deer,
a bear, a fox and a snake. As I looked at each animal all the movements of the
animal came to me. That is, as I looked at the snake I could see it crawling and laying eggs, when 1 saw the bear I could see ii catching fish and crawling into a cave,
and the same with the other animals.
"I used to think that an animal can't talk and an animal has no leeling or personality but as I looked at each animal and the movements came to me I saw that
this was wrong.
'The darkness started fading in the forest and 1 began to feel comfortable with
them although I can't explain why. I had a feeling of comlort in a group, of
balance and security. Although the dawn came 1 couldn't see the sky. The
animals told me that there was another world with a sky and trees outside of
where we were. I asked them if they could take me there and they said no.
"I began to feel lost, that everything I ahd ever experienced was nil and I
started crying—until all the animals started crying along with me.
'Then I heard a voice, saying 'Don't cry little one.'
"And I looked up to the sky to see an eagle.
" 'Just spread your wings and fly.' ,
"And the next thing I knew I was above the trees next to an eagle with white
markings on its head and wings. The eagle flew with me for a while and then left
me alone saying—
" 'You are an eagle and others will look to you lor • strength.'. And then my
father woke me up and told me it was time to go to Synagogue."
This summer Hal took a bus out to Arizona to study Political Science at Arizona
State University at Tempe. The course was "Revolution and the Social System"
but what really attracted him was not political science (or his other major,
Chinese) but the earth—
"Out there they said you could hear the earth speak. I felt that the earth was
calling me out there. I had originally planned on going to school, work fora while
and then split. But Icouldn't take it. I decided totry and get on the Navajo reservation, which is really a big one, but they wouldn't accept me.
"1 dropped the course and hitchhiked to Flagstaff where I happened to meet
two other Indians who took me to where they lived near Jerome (a large aban-
doned copper mining town.)
"I used to have the feeling before the summer that I would never take
hallucinogens but with these two friends I felt different. One of them I believe was
a member of the Native American Church (for whom it is legal to use peyote). We
would take 4 buttons each time.
"I am notaware of the procedure but we did follow some ritual. We would sit
around in a circle in a dimly lit room with a drum and sing.
"Peyote made me feel as if I was in the earth. I'd move my legs and feel as if the
earth moved. I'd speak and it was like the birds were singing. I waslike the rivers,
the mountains and the earth. From the first time I started having visions each
continuing where the other one left off.
"The first time I took peyote I had a vision where I saw someguy walking along
the road with a pack on his back and long blonde hair, blue eyes and high
cheekbones. In the vision I knew he was Indian, his name was Joe and that he was
from Denver.
"Two weeks later while driving in a pick up truck we saw someone walking
along the road and I met him. We became sworn brothers that day.
"It was unreal, like Chuang Tzu (a Chinese mystic) when hedreamed he was a
butterfly and when he woke he wasn't sure whether he was a butterfly dreaming he was a man or a man dreaming he was a butterfly. I don't know why it
happened, it just did. I can't give any physical explanation or anything like that..."
This separate visionary ol Hal's became part of his everyday life, joe had had
visions similar to Hal's previous to their meeting. Also Hal met an old Chinese
man who wandered the desert alone. Like a refugee from the T.V. series he
offered to teach Hal a certain school of Kung-Fu once he learns Chinese. At times,
an old Indian man would drop by where Hal lived with his friends.
"The Indian would be able to feel out our mood and adapt to us. He would
always come in moments of crisis, somehow knowing when they were. He would
pose us questions or speak and make many allusions to animals. Then he would
leave by saying, "I am only a mocking bird," and returned a week later tosee the
effect of his talk, like some Zen master who had just posed a question to his
"Sometimes also we would go hunting, usually for rattle snakes. We would kill
them with a gun and say a prayerforthen before and after we killed it. The meat
was unlike anything I've ever tasted.
"In the mornings I would bathe naked in the river and say my prayers. Later
we'd all go into a sweat lodge—an Indian sauna and sit around in a circle around
a hot pit singing and praying.
"I didn't know what the words meant but that didn't matter. I knew what the
songs meant anyway."
On the door of Hal's room hangs a"medicine shield" or what is a result of a vision quest he undertook this summer. The shield is brightly painted in red, yellow
and white on paper. The design is an abstract interpretation of an eagle. Four
feathers hang down from it. Four is a sacred number among many Indians. The
shield is dircular (circles are also sacred among most tribes) but the eagle contained within it is peculiar to Hal and the second day of his vision quest.
"On the second day (ol the quest) there was a sunset. I had just given up on ever
receiving a vision and I was almost ready to return and admitted to having failed.
"It was one ol those sunsets that seem to cover the whole sky in Iront and
behind you. The trees and rocks all around me were glowing orange, even my
skin. I was so intent on gaining the vision that I only caught it halfway through.
"It seemed to break my uneasiness. Alter that I sat down unconsciously and
just began to contemplate. In a little while the vision came—it was the same eagle
1 had seen when I was 13. It came as the last thing in the vision but the eagle had
the same markings as long ago. It was all encompassing. Even the clouds above
me took on the presence of the eagle. It's presence reaffirmed what had been said
"I wear my braids and my feathers now lortwo differenct reasons. Forone the
leathers bind me to the spirit of the birds to which I am a brother. . . I have
accepted the eagle as my spirit and all birds at the same time.
'The other thing is that they are a natural expression ol what's inside ol me—a
feeling ol Indianess that is just bubbling over.
"I leel allegiance to the Jewish people asa tribal people and a struggling people but I don't have any leeling for the Jewish religion."
My interview with Hal ended some 3 or4 hours alt^r 1 lirst walked into his room.
When I got home 1 went brousing through a book called Touch the Earth, A Sell
Portrait ol Indian Existence. It was late Friday night, the Jewish Sabbath, when this
passage, (written in response to an offer made to a group ol Indians in 1744 lo attend college) caught mye eye. . .
"We know that you highly esteem the kind ol learning taught in those col leges,
and that the maintenance of our young Men, while with you, would be very expensive to you. We are convinced, that you mean to do us Good by your Proposal:
and we thank you heartily. But you, who are wise therefore not take it a miss, il our
ideas ol the kind ol Education happen not to be the same as yours. We have had
some Experience ol it. Several ol our young People were formerly brought up at
the Colleges ol the Northern Provinces (i.e. Northern U.S.); they wer instructed in

nor Counsellors, they wer totally good for nothing.
"We are, however not the less oblig'd by your kind Oiler, tho' we decline
accepting; and, to show our grateful Sense ol it, it the Gentlemen ol Virginia will
send us a Dozen ol their Sons, we will takeCareof their Education, instruct then in
all we know and make Men ol them."
One must think that after all Hal has done this summer and even now, his real
education and his real barmitzvah have just begun

..Jxcerpted Irom "But Can She Type"-A Study of Employment Agency Discrimination Against Women in Albany by Mew York Public Interest Group(NYP1RG\ Karen Sadowsky, Project Coordinator.
Women work. The United State Department of Labor estimates that women
soon will constitute forty per cent of the work force. Women do not work only
because they have nothing better to do or because they wish to earn a little
pocket money. Like men, most women work out of economic necessity; they work
to support themselvesand their families. Inl969,eleven percent or all American
families were headed by women. In 1972, almost forty per cent of working wives
had husbands with incomes below $7,000 a year.
Even though women need to work/they face blatant discrimination in pay
scales and employment opportunities. The following table demonstrates the inequity in pay scales that a woman can expect to encounter once she enters the
work force: (Figures represent average income for full-time year round work)
Education level
Eighth grade graduates
17 goo
High school graduates
9 g'qg
College graduates
14 351
Sixty percent ol lull-time working women make less than $5,000 per year. A third
ol those make less than $3,000 per year. While 28 percent of working males
make over $ 10,000 a year, less than,3 percent of working women earn that figure
While differences in pay scale are striking, they do not tell the whole story. To
adequately judge whether or not women are receiving equal pay lor equal work,
a comparison must be made between men and women holding similar positions.
Unfortunately, men and women generally do not hold similar positions. Women
account for 95 percent ol all typists and 9 9 percent of all private households
workers, telephone operators, stenographers, and practical nurses. Women have
been systematically excluded Irom better-paid skilled jobs and upper-level
white-collar positions.
Alter a telephone study, NYP1RG researchers were able to identify problem
areas and take to the field lor interviews. Eight employment agencies in the
Albany area were visited, first by the "undergraduate" group, then by the
"graduate" group. Guided by prepared resumes the first group sought a lull-time
permanent position that would help pay for finishing his or her education: and ^he
second group sought a lull-time permanent position with a good future and room
lor advancement, starting at $125 a week. Neither group claimed any clerical
skills except lor typing.
Undergraduate Field Study
Dunhill Employment Agency, 41 State Street, Albany New York.
Female Experience:
Dunhill is a large employment operation with two divisions. There is a : ;ception room which is in the center ol the office. Both divisions contain four 1
that are partially divided, each housing one employment agent. Notably one
division appeared to be much larger than theotherand the decor seemed newer
and more expensive. The agents within this section were al! men. The reoetotionist handed me a pink application and two copies oi a pink contract, each
headed by the title Lady Dunhill.' I proceeded to fill out the application and
returned it to the receptionist She then asked me to take a typing test She placed
me in a closet with an electnc typewriter and gave me the test
I was then introduced to a iemaie employment agent in the smaller division
which contained two other iemaie agents. The counselor, Fran Hadersbeek,
began by asking me personal questions She asked 1!! was planning to relocate to
Albany because my fiance' or boyfriend lived there When 1 replied no the agent
asked me what inends I was visiting ! replied that I was visiting with friends whe

motives. The agent explained that the agency needed such informaacn to determine how long I would stay in Albany However, I had already told her ".hat I liked

The counselor then asked me what kind of work 1 was interested in doing. I toid
her that I had come to hear her suggestions, that I was unsure oi 3 career for

were no references to any secretarial stalls on my application. Listening to the

from men to male counselors and calls from women to female counselors
After completing the application i was directed to the large common room
where I noticed all the interviewees and interviewers were men. Women were

'Serpico' and 'Papillon' Off the Screen
(AP) Frank Serpico, the lonely
c r u s a d e r who helped expose
widespread graft in the New York City
police department, gazed out the caie
window at two long-haired Dutch cops
going by in a mini squad car.
The one next to the driver was a lady
cop, blonde arid pretty.

they like."
Serpico, known to prostitutes in the

his own collar-length hair and neat
spade beard in the mirror. He tugged
the gold earring in his good ear and
ordered up a genever, a "young"
Holland gin.

laughed, "I never caught a European

for sleeping on the job, in school boiler
rooms and tenements basements, a
custom Serpico early encountered as a
rookie cop in his native Brooklyn.
A horse-drawn barrel organ cascaded a waltz across the cobblestone

camper was parked at a meter. Alfie,
his shaggy English sheep dog and "only true friend," peered patiently out the
For more than two years now, Serpico has been in self-exile abroad,
almost constantly on the move, trying
to find himself and maybe—he smiles
wanly at the suggestion—trying to lose

He was warned, he testilied in court,
they were going to "do a job" on him
and he could end up "face down in the

fellow plainclothesmen on the take
from gamblers.

was shot in the face while making a
narcotics arrest.
Serpico stoodl apart in the ranks of
the New York Police department, the
nation's largest, as one ol the lew officers ever to report corruption and
then voluntarily take the stand against
crooked cops. - For breaking the unwritten precinct house law that in effect
puts cops above the law, he was
shunned and hated by his fellow officers and written oil as a "psycho" by
his superiors,

south Bronx division.
Frustrated at departmental foot

to The New York Times. The resulting
newspaper series caused a sensation.
In the fallout of related events, the embarrassed mayor appointed the independent Knapp Commission to investigate police corruption. Amid a

investigations, the
commissioner resigned, the department

Always a loner, The Beard abroad
has become even "more radicalized,

T.S. Eliot's poems in his locker and, he
laughs, "didn't stash money in mason

some opinions of the police he encounters. He liked the easygoing informality ol the Helsinki cops. He thought
some ol ihe local police in Italy lived up
to their Italian movie image ol "bumbling, sleazy corruptability," but the
carabiniere, the national force, were
"respected as a just police organization."
A village policeman in Italy showed :
him a rusty revolver,
"When was this shot last?" Paco asked.
"Who remembers?"
"But what if you needed it?"
', 'A'round here,"' the cop replied,
"before you shool someone, you'd
better shoot yourself first."
The British bobbies didn't impress
him: "their methods leave a lot to be
Serpico keeps notes for a possible
book, "not a behind-the-scenes, sour
grapes look at my past but something
on the philosophy of justice." He was
asked to address the police academy
in a Swiss city and pulled together
some of his theories on police training,
"like allowing 18-year-olds on the
force to train with an experienced
partner, having a ghetto family and
maybe a guy doing time rap with the
recruits and re-examining the whole
deal of arrest records versus citizen
He attended a World Police Federation meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland,
and was disappointed to find it "a big
beer drinking lest that had nothing to
do with resolving problems of better
law enforcement."
But the more he thinks about it, Serpico is convinced "it isn't just police
corruption. The whole system is rotten.
Here it is 1974 and they still bitch
about busing. America has become
the land ol the Big Rip Off; rip off others
before they rip you off."
Serpico pointed to a paperback
copy of Kurt Vonnegut's "Breakfast of
Champions" on the dashboard. "There
a guy who's got it all together. The
American dream has become a nightmare. I don't think the system can be
changed by legal means anymore. I'm

Devil's Island
DEVIL'S ISLAND, French Guiana
(AP) The cells, five paces long and
three paces wide, stand empty.
Smothering heat and a jungle of palm
trees enshroud row upon row ol
curmbling buildings.
A quarter-century has passed since
the guards in white and the inmates in
striped uniforms
left the p e n a l
colony known to
the world as Devil's
Roofs have caved in and shards of
red tile are strewn
like leaves in the
through the yards.
T h e r e is no
museum, no old-timer to tell the stories
ol the inmates who toiled and died
here. There are no souvenir stands, no
guides and few tourists.
There is a hotel, once a dining hall
lor guards, but it is seldom full.
Barracks that once housed guards
are now occupied by families of a
dozen technicians who man a radar
station that tracks missiles launched
Irom the French space center on the
mainland, only 8 miles away. The
bubble-topped station is on Royal
Island, almost concealed among the
ruins ol the penal colony, which
spread over three islands—Devil's
Royal and Si. Joseph.
Barely a stone's throw apart, the
islands form a triangle in the turquoise
waters ol Ihe Caribbean. They were
named the Salvation Islands by missionaries who fled there centuries ago
during an epidemic of malaria on the
French Guiana mainland.
For 100 years, France kept its most
hardened criminals in the South
American colony—in the Devil's
Island complex and in prisons and
work camps on the mainland.
For 50,000 of the 70,000 convicts,
French Guiana was a death sentence.
They were killed by disease, by guards
and by each other.
Few of the 20,000 survivors ever saw
France again. Some escaped into the
wilds of Venezuela; others served out
their terms and stayed in French
There was . . . Henri Charriere, the
convicted murderer who maintained
his innocence and chronicled prison
life and his Devil's Island escape in two
books, "Papillon" and "Banco." It is
primarily his work that brings tourists.
... Francis Lagrange, the convict painter who only in prison developed his
own style and stopped imitating the
masters he had forged so successfully
for so long.
. . . Soulange, a diamond thief, whose
ragged diary tells how he plotted his
escape from the island. The last page
said, "Tonight, I think I will succeed."
And he did, with three other men on a
rait made ol palm fronds. They drifted
for days without food or water until one
man, gone mad, jumped into the sea.
The others drew straws, and the loser
was killed and eaten. Soulange made it
to the mainland and found refuge in
Dutch Guiana, now Surinam.
There were no cells on'Devil's Island

O'Heaney's For Real
To the Editor:
Your article on taverns in La Belle Albany

was the writer's description of O'Heaney's
Grill at 184 Ontario Street. The description
was out-of-date by over two years! True,
O'Heaney's is neither a swinging singles uptown nor rock band druggy downtown bar,
and it may be raunchy by Wolf Road crowd
standards, but it hardly deserves the image of a
jock-fraternity-fight-all-the-timc boring place
that the article painted.

To the Editor:
This morning while most of the Albany student body was still asleep, crisis struck our
suite. One of our suitemates blacked out; the
thud of his head hitting the floor luckily woke
another up.
Controlling the urge to panic, we immediately contacted Five-Quad Ambulance
Service. Within minutes two very capable
representatives of Five-Quad were administering first-aid to our semi-conscious
and bewildered suitemate.
We could continue the story in detail, but
it's not really necessary. Our friend was in
Albany Medical Center receiving excellent
care, not more than twenty minutes after his

congratulatory honors of the highest degree

know either the young gentleman's or the

personally, but we in suite 1304 are deeply indebted to these fine people.
In conclusion, we would just like to say to
the Student body that whenever Five-Quad
asks for donations, to spare the change: someday you might need them too.

Pardoning the Convicted
The ASP was asked to publish the following letter and Central Comet
President Gerald Ford
New York State Congressional Delegation
Senator Jacob Javitt
Senator James Buckley
The enclosed bill calling for the pardoning of persons convicted of marijuana sale or possession is a position statement adopted by the State University of New York at Albany Central
Council, which represents the student body.
This piece of legislation represents an expression of mixed sentiments, confusion and revolusion. Confusion over Ihe meting out of unequal standards of justice, whereby punishment no
longer fits the crime (or any rational pattern) other than politcal expediency. Revulsion, about
the current situation whereby many thousands of otherwise innocent marijuana smokers have
served (and are serving) time in jail, and have had their careers and lives ruined.
This legislation makes no claim as to the value of theeffects of marijuana per se. but merely the
inequity of the present system's harsh treatment of its users. We hope you wil(accep«his bill in
the true spirit in which it was intended, and we hope that some serious thought is given to the exoneration of this country's non-criminal "criminals".

Whereas: President Ford has declared this a time for the nation to heal its wounds;
Whereas: In keeping with this spirit of sympathy and forgiveness;
It is hereby proposed that the following be enacted:
I. that Central Council adopt the position that a complete and unconditional pardon be
granted to all persons incarcerated or convicted on charges of possession or sale of nonwholesale quantities, of marijuana. This pardon shall include removal of said conviction from
any affected individual's record.
II. that a letter be sent to the President of the United Slates and the entire New,York State

During the past year, the United Farm
Workers Union and its supporters have disseminated considerable "information" about
the continuing dispute between them and the
Teamsters Union, as to which union should
have jurisdiction over Gallo farm workers.
Much of this "information" is demonstrably
misinformation. We are certain that you
would prefer to present all three sides of this
controversy if it should become, or if it has
become, newsworthy on your campus. There
are three sides, the U.F.W.'s.the Teamsters'

His telephone number is (2(H) 521-3599.
Please do not hesitate to call upon him forany
inlormation you may need; and please do call
upon him if the U.F.W. or its supporters
"make" news on your campus, so thai our side

and equally in your columns.
II the U.F.W. or its supporters request
advertising space for their viewpoint, we
would appreciate it if you would give us an
equal opportunity, at the same lime, and
preferably on facing pages, to present our side.
I will tell you quite frankly that this has been
a saddening and disillusioning experience for
my brother and me. Ours is a famil) business.
Within it we have warm and close
relationships of many years standing. We
believe in and encourage union representation. Further, our farm workers receive Irom

Guidelines for Decisions
k]r Loft Kjnasfco
From the moment anyone gets up in the
morning, he b i t to make decisions. Most of
these lift moral onca, having to do with right
and wrong, better and worse, good and bad.
All of IN IMC tome tort of guideline to help us
decide between choices.
Ii your guideline "what everybody elte ii
doing," or "what's best for me" (but maybe
will hurt somebody else), or "what Mom and
Dad said"or just "whatever is easiest?* Have !
you ever bothered to think about it? These .
choices and guidelines were around 2,000
years ago or so, when Jesus Christ was doing
his three year teaching and miracle-making
thing. What he said and did upset the big guys
so much they killed him as a public criminal.
Today there are people running around who
claim to be "Christians." The Bible says that
when someone becomes a Christian, he it a
new person. How does this Christian make
choices? How does this brand new person live
day lo day? First of all, what is a Christian?
Protestant? Religious person? Someone who
d o n his best? Follower of Jesus Christ?
teaching that Jesus was talkingabout? The Bible says, "We have come to know and believe
in the love God has for tit. God is love, and he
who abides in love abides in God, and God in
him," We, for our part, love because he first
loved us. The commandment we have from
himisthis: "whoever loves God must love his
brother." a John 4:16,19,21).
Daly Moral Choices
Obviously, the guideline for a Christian
who must make daily moral choices is love.
But Jesus never talked about ah ego trip, a
trite generalization, a "nothing word," when
he talked about love. He said, "There is no
greater love than this: to lay down one's life
for one's friends." And that's just what he did.
He always gave, never asking anything for
himself. He lived and died freely, for people
who were rotten and hated him. And he didnt

person in the work) who needed hint, be would
have died exactly the way he did. He would
havesaidalltheoutntgeousthingshesaid. He
would have done all the wild things he did.
For you. Just one pitiful, confused, lonely,
scared kid,
Of course, it won't make any difference if
you don't want it to. That's up to you. The Bible says, "Love is Very patient and kind, never
jealous or conceited or proud, never rude or
selfish or irritable. Love does not demand its
own way. It does not hold grudges and will
hardly even notice when others do it wrong. It
is never glad about injustice, but rejoices
whenever truth wins out. Ifyou love someone,
you will be loyal to him no matter what the
cost. You will always believe in him, always
expect the best of him, and always stand your
ground in defending him. Love never ends..."
(I Cor 13:4-8).
A Christian knows that there ii a Cod. This
God is loving but perfect. The Christian
realizes that he is not super-goody Captain
Lovable. But instead of feeling guilty and trying to escape from himself, or maybe see an
analyst or something, he reaches out to the
promise of Jesus, which claims love and
oneness with God, freedom, and life.

An Evening's Perversion
by Speaet Raggio
The Marquis de Sade. Mention his name and reactions will range from repulsion tocuriousfascination.
Repulsion for what some view as the most obscene works
of literature ever written; fascination for the amazing intelligence of the man responsible for them.
From the completion of his earliest known work—in
1782^-Sade was forced to deny authorship of almost
everything he wrote. Only recently has there been an
acceptance of, or at least tolerance of, Sade's work.
Sade probably could have avoided the censorship and
persecution that he was and is subject to if only he had
limited his writings to the sexual explicitness and variety
for which he his famous. However, Sade was an atheist,
and this, coupled with his highly political pamphlets,
placed him in a very unfavorable position with both
Church and State. He spent a good portion or his life in
various prisons (where he did most of his writing) and
eleven years in the asylum of Charenton until his death in
Jean-Paul Marat was one of the greatest men of the
French Revolution, champion of the people who actually carried out the re\olution. His political essays and
pamphlets made him an enemy of the royalists, who sent
Charlotte Corday to his room to kill him. Marat, suffering from a skin disease, was forced lo sit in a bath to
However, cxcrutiatingly brilliant as these
professionals were, mention must be made of
the subtle talent of the sponsors of the film.
Shown in a choice basement, upon a
stylistically-wrinkled sheet, and complete with
musty odor and darkened passages, the atmosphere of the production was authentic and
inspiring. In fact, that atmosphere was so inspiring that my floor, the majority of which
was present, seemed sincerely affected by the
manner in which Linda Lovelace conquered
her terrible, crippling problem. Altogether, an
excellent and uplifting experience.
This changes him. It turns his whole life
around. He can't explain it, but a lot of the
ways he used to do things don't work for him
A Christian is a follower of Jesus Christ,
and Jesus said: "If you live according to my
teaching, you are truly my followers."

alleviate the pain, and it is here that he was stabbed by
Corday, defenseless in the midst of his writing.
The Marquis de Sade and Jean-Paul Marat never actually met. When Marat died, Sade volunteered to say a
few words al the burial, an offer inspired by purely selfish
motives. From this chance incident, Peter Weiss conducted an absolutely brilliant play, The Persecution and
Assassination of Jean-Paul Moral as Performed by the
Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade . Or, to fit the marquee,
Marat I Sade.
It is a difficult, complex play, and just as it is not easy
to watch and understand, it is not easy to produce.
To celebrate the occasion of their 150th production
the RPI Players chose to present MaratSade. It is excellent, thanks to the direction of Bill Kammer and the
brilliant acting of the Players.
The Fifteenth Street Lounge at RPI is just the right
size for Weiss' play, its smallness and informality
engendering the intimacy necessary to the play's success.
Mural/Sail'e. is a play within a play. The audience
enters and is seated in the asylum, as the inmates mill
about, waiting for the play to begin. Sade enters, and M.
Coulmier, thedirector of theasylum. enters with his wife
and briefly introduces the play.
"The subject of tonight's piece will be the assassination
of the revolutionary figure Jean-Paul Marat, by the
woman Charlotte Corday which occurrred just fifteen
years ago this very night. . . Please settle back and
relax . . . and joinusforapleasantevening'sdrvenion.™
Hut MaraiiSade never approaches "a pleasant
evening's diversion". It is a disturbing pta>. a visually
assaulting collage of conflicting characters. Sade is
situated in his own milieu, he is ir. total control. The
asvlum director is held back by his fear of Sade and the
other inmates The inmates are puppets, they obey Sade
through fear and force and respect, he is God in thn
small universe of Charenton. Only the Herald does not
succumb to Sade. He defers to Sade's power through
choice and not through fear The Herald's delusions at
power and ,uperionty are balanced by intelligence And
tunning, ennablmg him to live in the asylum and not
simply survive like the others. He plays the g3n-,e to suit
his own ends.
I.uke Castellucci is absolutely flawless as the Herald,
recalling Joel Grey's Ma,ter of Ceremonies ;n Cabaret.
He remained property above the action of the play, an
observer, superior to both the acton and the audier.ee.
I. scellent performances were also turned is by Robert
Schiller as Sade. and Susan Prescott Purdy as Charlotte
Corday an especially difficult and exhausiing'-role
\laruilSade is a constant bombardment of opposing
philosophies a., Sade and Marat argue points of the
revolution, ;ino other characters add their own impassioned outbursts.
I he murder of Marat and the subsequent end of the
play brings to the inmates a release from their roles in the
play and at the same time liberates them from the r.iles
they have been confined to as inmates, culminating in a
final visionoi a maniacal Sadi laughing in glorious exultation over the totally unleashed actions of the inmates
that will reverberate in your mind for days after the performance.

Filling but Tasteless
Reenter a Child's World
by Howard Jacob*
1 guess all little kids have had their own trees, held
funerals for their pets and have gone into theiriown fantasy worlds in their own room. Last Friday I had the opportunity to re-enter the work) of the young when I
attended "An Afternoon for Children."
Three short children's stories were adapted for the
stage and put on for some young children and a few older
ones who all seemed to enjoy the performance.
The Giving Tree was about a young boy who had his
own apple tree. As he grew older he used the apples to sell
and make money, cut down the branches to build himself
a home, took the trunk to build a boat and left only a
stump. It was not until years later that he truly appreciated the tree. He was an old man and he used the
stump to rest his tired body upon.
In The Dead Bird a group of young children playing
together, find a dead bird. .They bury it and hold a
funeral for it. They then resume their play. They return
to the grave often and sing by it as a memorial. The story
shows the children'siftrst encounter with death.
The third story was probably the most appreciated by
the young audience. In Where the Wild Things Are, a

The play used thediffcrcnt exits of

The second playlet, titled "Johnny

more confident throughout, and
blocking was much more imaginative. It included the two actors
pacing around on top of their bed,

Gridders Roll Again; Demolish Cards 49-8
by Don Ncmclk
and Joyce R. Btlta
Obviously the cliche "Ford has a
better idea" holds some truth as
Albany State combined that
triumphant balanced attack that has
thus far provided an undefeated
season and a chance at the much
deserved recognition in the college
football! world at Plattsburgh,
Saturday, as they overwhelmed the
Cardinals by u score of 49-8.
It was a game that saw seven
Albany State touchdowns and a
flawless day for Al Martin providing
the extra points. The Albany offense
was sparked by Glenn Sowalskie,
who totaled 164 yards in 16 carries
for three Great Dane scores. The
team rushed for 370 yards, including
Marvin Perry's 63 yard sin only three
carries. His big gain came on a 35
yard carry on a pitch from Bertuzzi
that put Albany on the board in the
first quarter.
Albany added another seven in the
second quarter with Sowalskie's
two-yard plunge.
After the defense held off
Plattsburgh's Jim Fraser and Ver-
non Blue, it raided Joe Garcia's position behind a line that could not contain Rudy Vido, Frank Villanova
and Tim Myers or keep them from
terrorizing the Cardinal offense.
Albany's defense was headed up
by Don M ion who picked off two
passes and gathered in another fumble. Albany managed to obtain
seven Plattsburgh turnovers.
The second half saw'quarterback
John Bertuzzi riflea five yard pass to
halfback Marvin Perry for a
touchdown. Later on a third down
and one from the three yard line,
Bertuzzi spotted Glenn Sowalskie in
the end zone for the fourth tally.
With the game in hand, Dave
Ahonen was put in to call signals for
Albany and he put together a 34yurd strike to end Don Whitely.
Then, Plattsburgh's offense accomplished theironeand only score.
With the ball on the 23-yard line,
Garcia unloaded a bullet to Huck
Finn for the touchdown (Mark
Twain couldn't have made a better
play). On an almost instant replay,
they added a 2-point passing conversion. Then it was Sowalskie's speed

type play. Coach Ford explained in
this manner, "After the snap, the
defense must cover the quarterback,
the fullback, a possible pitch or
hand-off, or a quick pump to the
split end."
That leaves four
possibilities, three inside and one
wide, which can be utilized offensively by a cut play or a counter play.

For perhaps the first time this season, Ithaca College football Coach
Jim Butterfield has admitted he is looking ahead.
The future for Butterfield and his team, which buried Rochester Tech
Saturday to finish 9-0, is an invitation to a bowl game—an invitation sure to
come after the Bombers enhanced their status as the No. I small college team
in the East.
"1 don't think it's going to sink in for some time," Butterfield said after his
team's 68-17 cakewalk at Rochester. It was his first unbeaten team.
Invitations will be extended Nov. 19 to two Eastern teams to compete in
the Knute Rocknc Bowl on Nov. 30. The winner of that bowl meets a
Midwest small college team the following Saturday in the Amos Alonzo
Stagg Howl in Phcnix City, Ala.
Ithaca players have the week off before resuming practice. "I told them to
relax and get their minds off football," Butterfield said.
Meanwhile, their coach will be out recruiting for the 1975 Bomber team.
"Recruiting, of course, is the name of the game," he said. "You'd better think
ahead or you're going to sink."
In other games Saturday, two top New York State teams completed their
seasons with wide victory margins. Hobart finished 8-1 by defeating
Brockport State, 41-6. And St. Lawrence, 7-2, outclassed Rensselaer

Saturday was a day of individual as well as team accomplishment for
Ithaca, which breezed through a strong schedule to its first perfect season in
nine years.
Senior fullback Duvc Rcmick rushed for 102 yards and thereby became the
first Ithaca player to reach the 1,000-yard rushing plateau. He had 1,010 on
the season.

the damage was done and that was

"One thing thai everyone was glad

Although they finished 16th, the
Cardinals were expecting three or
