Stickmen Continue to Roll; Top Geneseo 14-7
by Craig Bell
"Blue Turkey's, Blue Turkey's"
screamed theDanes'Steve Schaus in
the lockerroom Saturday afternoon
as the Albany Great Dane lacrosse
team destroyed the thirteenth ranked Blue Knights of Geneseo, 14-7.
Geneseo wastfl in the ECAC tournament last year and their only other
loss this year was at the hands of top
rated Hobart. But they were in for a
long frustrating afternoon on Saturday.
Although Geneseo grabbed an
early 2-1 lend after one quarter, the
Danes set the pace early for the type
of game that was to follow and it was
just a matter of time until their shots
started going in.
Terry Brady got the Danes rolling
in the second quarter as he picked up
a loose ball and hit Dan Goggin
breaking down the left side for the
score. Then it was Steve Schaus's
turn as he bounced one home alter a
nice pass from Brady. Arnie Will
then beat his man and Tired a shot

Schaus begged his second of the
game and Goggin picked up the
rebound of Tom Grasiose's shot and
banged it home. Pete Weycamp and
Goggin scored again to give the
Danes a 8-2 lead. Geneseo scored
right before the half and the teams
went into the lockerroom with the
Danes enjoying an 8-3 advantage.
The first half was all Albany as
they played inspired lacrosse. The
defense was lough and they controlled the ground ball, John Adamson and Kevin Murphy filling in for
the injured Joe Mullin did an excellent job. John handled the big
Geneseo atuicknien and Kevin's
wheels and good stick were a big
asset on the clears.
The always hustling Hill .lonat,
hack after being sidelines with the
flu, played his usually outstanding
game. He led the team in ground
halls with eleven. Dave Ahonen also
played a solid defensive game for
State as he played smart lacrosse.
Albany did not let up when they
came out for the second half. They
continued to hit and control the
ground balls as they had in the first
half. Once again it was Terry Brady
who got the Danes moving, as he
rolled around the right side of the
cage and beat the goalie with a shot
into the lower left hand corner.
Both teams then triedtheirluckon
their man-up offense as numerous
penalties were handed out to both
teams in the third quarter. The
Danes won this battle too as Goggin
picked up his fourteenth goal of the
season, off a nice pass from behind
by Brady.

man-up to perfection as they moved

Standards Vjp for SUNYA Admissions
by DtrM WfsMt)btr|
It is becoming increasingly apparent that SUN Y A is setting higher
Ulan ever standards for its next
entering freshman class. Last year,
freshmen applications to this university increased 33% over the previous
period, and according to Rodney
Hart, director of Undergraduate Admissions, that increase "is being
maintained" this year.
University's Goal
The UniversityVgoal", as Hart
termed it, "is to register 1600
freshmen" next term. The admissions office has "given out 6000"
acceptances or "bids" from a. total
of 13,7000 applicants wishing to attend SUN YA this autumn, Director
Hart said that "Applications are up

why SUNYA is and will probably
continue to be bombarded with anxious cnrollces.
Hart cited "location, size,

contributing to the increase in
applications to this school. Hart
feels that these days it is "not difficult,
to get into college at all", and that

EGYPT (AP) President Anwar Sadat of Egypt may meet with President
Ford early next month, informed sources in Cairo said Thursday. Egyptian
political sources said Sadat plans to announce Friday that he will meet a
"major foreign personality" in a European capital on June 2-3. Informed
sources said Ford, who goes to Brussels on May 28 for a North Atlantic
Treaty Organization summit meeting, may be the foreigner. Neither the U.S.
Embassy in Cairo nor the Egyptian Foreign Ministry would comment.
Diplomatic sources said American and Egyptian officials in Cairo are tightlipped because they don't want to detract from what is expected to be an
announcement from both capitals.
BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP) Guarded by soldiers and police, the
people of Northern Ireland voted Thursday in an election that has been called
the province's last chance at a political solution to its sectarian war. A light
turnout was blamed by polling officers on general apathy and a boycott
urged in Catholic areas. The voting, expected to divide along Roman
Catholic and Protestant lines, was lo elect 78 delegates to a constitutional
convention that will try to work out a new form of provincial govern ment for
Northern Ireland, ruled directly from London for nearly a year.
SOUTH VIETNAM (AP)The Vict Cong announced Thursday they were
in complete control of South Vietnam and issued a scries of policy decrees
stressing revolutionary government and an end to 15 years of U .S. influence.
A broadcast warned people against "acting like American." Among the
decrees was an order nationalizing vitually all the country's business and
industry, the Cuban news agency reported.
THAILAND (AP) Thailand's foreign minister, Chatichai Choonhavan,

"You've all heard that saying that
socialism is beautiful on paper, but
doesn't work in real life. Well,
capitalism doesn't even work on
paper." Peter Camejo's listeners
burst into laughter at that, oneofhis
speech's light moments. Over one
hundred and fifty people were
gathered in the Campus Center
Assembly Hall, Monday, to hear the
Socialist Workers Party 1976
presidential candidate speak. Camejo had just explained in general
terms how to manipulate unemployment and inflation, and the4% unemployment felt by economists to be
ideal. When the laughter subsided.
Camejo returned to the blackboard
on which he had sketched an
inflation- unemployment graph,
lie pointed out the ahoutfacc Ford
had taken, from the "Whip Inflation
Now" days at the beginning of his
presidency, to the great deficit
budget recently introduced. "You
w ill" Camejo continued, "ifcupitalists
can make money. Period."
Camejo begun his speech with a
lew reminiscences about his campaign, primarily concerning the
federal Bureau of Investigation.
I he F.B.I, has clashed with Camejo
on several occasions. When he
brought the organization to court

Carnein emerged \ ielorious. A short
lime ago. Camejo revealed a si/.able
collection of hit.I. secret memoes
on lelev ision. and published them in
" I h c M o n i t o r " , a socialist
newspaper. Allegedly, these
documents give proof of the F.B. I.'s
involvement with hundreds of dissent organizations and criminal
groups. "Harrassment by the F.B.I,
follows a pattern," Camejo observed, adding later, "They don't want
people to hear the alternative ideas."
He then told of his experience trying to hear Gerald Ford make a
speech. "1 don't know if they do it by
plastic surgery or what," he mused,
"but secret service men all look the
same." Next came the description,
then, "and they all wear these little
buttons so they won't arrest each
other." Again laughter, after which
Camejo informed his audience that
he never got to hear the speech,
because he. a friend, and two innocent bystanders were jailed for six
hours. "The capitalists prevent the
socialist workers' alternative from
being known." Camejo repealed,
"because they know it will be liked."
Hie next topic was the economic
crisis. Camejo cited the major
problem as its being presented in
mystical terms, "They talk about.
'America is having inflation,' like a
cold spell. They try to make it sound
like a sickness or tornadoes." He
picked upa pieceof chalk, emphasizing his words by writing the figures
on the blackboard, and reported,

YYAillllSCUl&i (All) A formerly secret Senate report says American
nuclear weapons have been stored in Europe under conditions so lax that
they have been vulnerable to attack by terrorists. In one case, according to
the censored report released Wednesday, atomic bombs were stored in the
basement of an office building with only minimal protection. However, the
Pentagon indicated that since the report was written in 1973, it has corrected
most of the deficiencies.
WASHINGTON (AP) Secretary of Defense James Schlcsinger said today
he expects no new Communist military challenges in Asia as a result of North
Vietnam's victory and other U.S. reverses in Indochina. At the same lime,
Schlesingcr said "it is particularly inopportune to contemplate major
changes" in military deployments because the confidence of many countries
"in American power and American steadfastness" has been shaken.
WASHINGTON (AP) The House rejected Thursday $327 million in
humanitarian aid for South Vietnamese refugees tin act President Ford

MYTHH 2— Homosexual men dress in
women's clothing and vice versa.FALSE—
People who dress in the clothes of the opposite
sex and are turned on by that aretransvestites.
There are a number of gays who cross-dress,
but they are considered homosexual

MYTH Hi—In sexual relationships, one

straight sex, is a shared experience. Either of
the participants may initiate the sex act: no

After four games, my match with
Brian Green now stands at one win
each with two draws. There have
been many mistakes by both sides
but the games have been anything
but peaceful!
After the English Opening of the
second game, White had a nice lead
in development which resulted in the
win of a pawn. However, I made two
weak moves and material was once
again evened. Though Black tried to
complicate the position in White's
time pressure, the final position was
a draw.

Zappa: An Interesting Experiment
by Spence Ri||k>
and Malt Kaufman
In concert, the musical repertoire
of Frank Zappa and the Mothers of
Invention is seemingly limitless; they
appear to have enough material to
perform for several weeks straight
without repetition. Their music
ranges from lyrical narrative to pure
instrumental, but when it comes to
college performances Zappa has
always put aside his better known
pieces for more experimental
musical forms, as he illustrated last
week to a full house at the Palace.
Experimental is not necessarily
better, though. The show was
interesting—and "interesting" is
Gertrude Stein's single qualification
lor determining whether or not
something is worthwhile—but the
concert could have been much
better. At times the music slipped
from free-form into slush. Sickness
was partially to blame; Zappa and
several members of the band
reportedly almost fell off the stage at
the end of the show.
Things started off with a free-form
jam, involving some strange
pulsating lighting effects, as a
manner of introduction for the
members of the band: Bruce Fowler
on trombone, Terry Vozio on
drums, George Duke on keyboards,
Tom Fowler on bass. Napoleon
Murphy Brock on lead vocals and
saxes, Denny Walley on rhythm
guitar, Capt. Bccfheart on harmonica and vocals, and Frank Zappa on lead guitar, vocals and low

and solos rather than the more popular narrative. Playing only a handful ofvocal numbers, the group then
ventured off into more unorthodox
musical ground, a move that unfortunately evoked complaints from
many in the audience, and snores
from several others.
On lead guitar Zappa presented
himself as quite fluent, accurate and
intelligent. A recurring criticism of
Zappa's musicianship is that he
doesn't seem to be trying, and this
was the case at the Palace. Zappa,
like the whole concert, was good but

It was a big surprise to see Walley
on rhythm guitar. It's not often that
Zappa will even permit another
guitarist on stage, and for him to
throw a few leads (mainly slide) to
Walley was even rarer.
The main set was unusually

sickness -but the audience brought
them hack on stage with a standing
ovation, and Zappa and the Mothers
kept them on their feet with an excellent rendition of "Willie the

numbers. It looked like Zappa and
Co. had finally woken up. the concert seemed like it was really ready to
move hut alter "Willie the Pimp"
they walked off stage and only the
return ol ihe house lights were able
to quiel the audience down.
All in itllan interesting experience,
but one that gave proof of Zappa's
potential rather than of his ability.
Buddy Guy &
could have been much better.
George Duke showed a great,
desire to "fiddle about" on
keyboards, at times successfully but
more often not. In comparison with
the many keyboardists who have
played with Zappa in the past, or
even in comparison with any of the
keyboard men performing in rock

The modest and reserved conductor did a fine job throughout the evening
with regards to tightness and clarity. In addition, his interpretations were as
diverse in style as the selections themselves.
The first half of the program was characterized by three marching-band
type pieces, a fine example being Rossini's "March for the Marriage of the
Duke of Orleans. They were all well performed but the very nature of the
works diminished our appreciation of them. The fourth work of the set,
"Antiphony for Winds" by Robert Ward differed from the others in that the
melody lines and the harmonics held our interest. The ensemble's
interpretation of the work elicited a feeling of triumph.
The second half of the concert far surpassed the first. The ensemble
accompanied soloist Sandra Neumann, soprano, in a contemporary work by
Gilmore, "Five Folk-Songs for Soprano and Band". This piece highlighted
the evening, as both soloist and ensemble joined forces in portraying each of
the expressive, ethnic folk songs. Sandy's voice was lyrical, distinct and her
interpretations plausible. Although the band sometimes drowned her out at
certain moments, little of the effect was lost.
The program closed with Leonard Bernstein's "Overture to Candida", a
relatively well known work comprised of intricate rhythms and melodies.

Hie Woman Behind Nero
In the Roman social structure
women occupied a status which
appear* paradoxical to us. they had
no individual given names because
they were not regarded as fully competent legal persons. So every
woman, was named solely by the
name,, in feminine form, of her
father's clan. Caesar's daughters, if
he had, fiftyof them, would all have
been simply "Julia"; and all the
daughters of Cornelii Scipioneswere
automatically Cornelias. Moreover,
no Roman woman could engage independently in any sort of legal transaction; she must always have had
the advice and consent of a father,
husband, or male guardian. But
fathers persuaded, husbands
cajoled, and guardians brow-beaten; the fact is that Roman women
played a big part in Roman publicas
well as private life, from Lucrctia,
who precipitated the expulsion of
the lust King Tarquin from Rome in
509 B.C., to Theodora, wife of the
Emperor Justinian a thousand years
later. Not that they were always a
beneficent influence. The daughter
of King Scrvius Tullius, two
generations before Lucrctia, was a
Lady Macbeth who drove her
brother-in-law to win the throne by
murdering her father and her husband. In her exultation she guided
her chariot over her father's dead
body as it lay in the street.
Nero's mother Agrippina was
a n o t h e r such. The greatgranddaughter of both Mark Antony and Augustus, both of whom
had a will to rule, and well acquainted with the bloody intrigues of
the imperial court in the reigns of

To the Editor:
We, the undersigned, were shocked and
dismayed to see the Class of '78 Council ad in
Tuesday's ASP. "The Class of '78 Council
Endorses" sounds like it was a unified class
action, and not the action of a few individuals
(which it was). We feel that a class Council
should not get involved in a Student
Association election. What if another
candidate wins? Won't the endorsement serve
as a source of hard feelings? Isn't it a
coincidence that the Class President signed the
order for the ad and that he is the campaign
manager for one of the endorsed candidates?
We were even more upset to discover that

In October, an International Night took'
place. The ASP was notified ten days before
the fact. Furthermore,' posters were scattered
throughout the campus informing the
comrnunity-at-large of the event. Adding
insult to injury, the ASPoffice is located next
door to the International Student office,
therefore lack of coverage of events sponsored
by ISA can not be ascribed to ignorance on the
part of the ASP "elites." It was of little
importance that International Night was a
way of introducing a variety of cultures to the
university community. The ASP assumes that
the community would father be informed
about beer blasts and other trite events.
A press release was sent to the ASP
describing Sayles International House. The
release was informative and was the primary
slcp iii a campaign to get students interested in
the dorm. The author of the release, the Sayles
Director, requested that the ASPnoitfy her of

the director's request were ignored by the
ASP. Again, it must be pointed out that the
ASP office is next door to ISA where the
Sayles Director works.
there has been no coverage of the following
events, directly involving foreign students:

I have not listed all the events that took place
this year, can he seen that the ASP
has been negligent in covering those activities
planned hy foreign students.
Perhaps this lack of exposure is a relied ion
of (he attitude of the community. I, however,
prefer to think that this merely reflects the
all unties of the 457' editors. They obviously
see IUI "newsworthiness" in events sponsored
by foreign students. So the university
community will remain ignorant of the talent

too had, because the community could use an

Myskania, Class of 77, State Quad Board,
SASU, University Senate, Central Council,
Alumni Board, President, Vice-President, the
Student Tax Referendum, and NYPIRO?
That is, if you were lucky to get there early
enough, since they ran out of NYPIRG ballots
at 5:15. Armed with ten diffenent pieces of
paper, you were supposed to fill them out in
the polling area— which many did not. Then
one had to take the papers and fold them
separately, so that they could fit in the small
hole in the ballot box.
1 fail to see why voting machines couldn't
have been used. There is a great amount of
confusion then you have to fill out close to a
dozen ballots. It is very easy not to be given
one. A simple error of ordering too few
ballots, as in the case of NYPIRG,
disenfranchises students. How does Central
Council expect to get (he required 20% vote if
they print too few ballots? Polling was
conducted too close to the voting area (within

result -frequent recounts of the.paper ballots

the voles, not to mention the difficulty in the

Finster's Oxygen Tank
.by Gary Aderman •
Doctors in New York State may refuse to treat all bul certified emergencies after July Isl
unless new legislation regarding malpractice suits is enacted. The doctors want legislation
limiting the quality and quantity of suits that can be levelled against them by former patients.
Physicians claim that worrying about possible future lawsuits cramps their style and interferes
with their treatment off patients.
In order to view the situation from the insurance company's point of view. I contacted the
United Chutzpah Insurance Company, a major insurer of physicians in New York State, and
asked lo meet with one of their representatives. The company graciously consented, and I was
treated to a lavish dinner at a high-class restaurant hy Mr. Earnest Swindle, an executive of the
"Ihe problem for us is Ihe juries. Juries have a soft spot in their hearts lor any allegedly
manhandled person who wants lo collect from an anonymous, enormously wealthy insurance
company, whose subsidaries probably never even paid out the claims of the jurors on their own
home or auto insurance."
"If your company is so wealthy, though, why do you object to paying out claims?"
"Because we didn't get to be that wealthy by paying out claims in Ihe first place. Don't you
understand business?"
"I'd like to draw your attention to the case of one Irving Finster, a 42-year old ulcer sufferer
who underwent abdominal surgery about six months ago, only to discover a week later that he'd
had a lour and one-hall loot high tank of oxygen sewn up inside of hi m by his surgeon, whom I
believe was also insured hy your company."
"Yes. I remember that case. I handled it myself. It was obviously a -ase of fraud on the part of
Mr. Finster. And let me remind you that it was only an alleged tank of oxygen."
"Fraud indeed! Imagine, blaming a surgeon for sewing a tank inside of him. Finster had no
proof lledidn't actually see his doctor sew anything up at a 11. You yourself don't definitely know
il il was a lank of oxygen sewn up in there. I'll admit, that to look at Finster, you'd think it was a
lank ol some sort slicking out ol his right side and extending hallway down his leg. But Finster
never had thai growth diagnosed objectively."
"I'll concede that, but you have lo admit there was quite a mystery as to what actually was in
Finster, before he died."
"Yes, Finster expired before a final decision on his case could be reached by the jury. It was
unfortunate for Finster, but the company saved a lot of money."
"Some people blame Finster's death on the fact that you and your company legally blocked
any medical action lo investigate what was wrong with him, hy using stall techniques in the
"Ridiculous! What we did in courl was, and still is, our standard procedure for handling any
claim lhat might cost the company more than three dollars and ninety-live cents. If Finster died,
il was because he didn't have enough patience to stick out the trial."
"How long would his case have taken to resolved?"
"It would have been live years before my company would agree lo underwrite an investigation
of Finster's 'tumor.'"
"Five years!"
"We're a very generous company."

Whose Land
Is This Land?
by Grace Jordan
Every person who is concerned about the
future of wildlife should be up in arms about
the Interior Secretary's recent decision to
transfer 2 million acres of our nation's publicly
owned wildlife preserves from the Fish and
Wildlife Service to the Bureau of Land
Management (BLM).
This decision means that areas in Arizona,
Nevada and Montana will no longer serve the
interests of wildlife first. They will be exposed
to the"multiple use" practices of the Bureau of
Land Management. The issue has raged for
eighteen months with minersand stockmen on
the side of the Bureau and conservationists
supporting the Fish and Wildlife Service.
At stake is far more than three magnificent
wildlife preserves. This administrative
maneuver sets'V devastating precedent for
dismantling our entire national wildlife refuge
system, of the greatest conservation
achievements in the world. In the process it
appcar$ u c tfiat several laws arc being
circumvented or completely ignored.
The igsplutipn permits the BLM to
administer the areas as units of the refuge
system, allowing for disposal of any refuge by
transferring it to other agencies. Most
importantly, this decision jeopardizes the
nossible formation of huge Wildlife'Refuges
and National Parks in Alaska.
The implications for Alaska are grave.
BLM is presently fighting against the making
of these lands as either National Parks or
National Wildlife Refuges. Obviously the
takeover of theareas in Montana, Nevada and
Arizona subtly sets the stage for BLM to gain
control over public land areas in Alaska as
At the expense of other agencies, the BLM
is building itself into an "empire." While the
Fish and Wildlife Service and the National
Park Service have seen their number of
employees reduced in the past few years, BLM
has succeeded in adding more than 800
positions. Such additions—despite a declining
economy—were achieved to help speed up the
Bureau's oil and coal leasing activities. It is
highly advantageous to the energy industry to
have the exploitation-oriented BLM gain
administrative control at the expense of more
conservation-minded agencies.
Members of Congress, outraged by the
BLM raid on the National Wildlife Refuge
System, have introduced bills to reverse the
transfer decision and provide Ihe National
Wildlife Syslem with statutory protection
from future mids. Supporters and defenders
of wildlife programs have called lor a
nationwide campaign to oppose this illconceived plan..
There is simply no justification for turning
over to the BLM, which has historically
concentrated on protecting livestock grazers
and mining interests, the control of ranges
established to c r e a t e undisturbed
environments forwildlife.Theareas in dispute
represent less than '/iof I per cent of our public
lands. Surely wildlife deserves something!

opined that if an agreement were not reached by early summer, war would follow within ashort
time. When thesituation is on the verge of marks the failure
of the policy being followed to avoid the conflict. Even allowing for intransigence on both sides,
it is Kissinger who is in the middle. By out maneuvering the- Russians for the right to be the
"peacemaker," he brought the onus for producing peace on the U.S., and, consequently himself.
A lasting peace in the Middle East seems at best improbable now.
Kissinger did not begin us on the tragic road to failure in Vietnam. But when President Nixon
began his Vietnamization policy, Kissinger at least backed him and probably formulated some of
the policy, although he was not yel Secretary of State. And when a peace agreement was finally
signed in 1973, Kissinger received a Nohcl Peace Prize. In light of recent events, what is the worth
of that prize now'.' The truth is that Kissinger's peace wasa public relations peace, servingonly to
extricate the United States from the war. South Vietnam was very nearly a spectator at the
negotiations. And that fact alone guaranteed thai a lasting peace would never be at hand until a
military victory was won by either side. Kissinger discussing Chile, has been quoted as saying:
"Why should we stand by as an ignorant population elects a Communist government'.'" This
statement could have many repercussions. It seems (o give laeit approval to the CIA io
overthrow any government il feels is improper, whether duly voted into office by all proper
election rules or not. Judging by the outcry following recent disclosures of domestic and foreign
CIA activities, a large number of Americans would answer Kissinger's question with a simple.
"Because the Communists won a free election fair and square."
The State Department has become a one-man show. Everything is run by Henry Kissinger.
Anonymous officials have admitted that Kissinger refuses io delegate authority. Hccoordinates
all major policy decision; this system allows a dangerous amount of power to be vested in one
man. And when he finally docs leave, one can envision a humbling State Department not
knowing where to begin on any front "because Henry's not here anymore." A smooth transition
of power to a new Secretary with a new policy ol delegating responsibility down through the
Department would seem a much healthier way to run that arm of Ihe government.
President Ford must do something lo repair our image. Once the initial shock ol "losing
Henry" subsided in other nations, they would perhaps come lo believe that another man could
possibly do the job. With the Vietnam saga al its ghastly conclusion, the Middle East still
teetering on the brink of war, detente in unclear health, and an ovcrcentrali/ed Slate
Department, there arc few successes for Kissinger lo look back on. l o r not even he isnbsolulelj

The University of Massachusetts
defeated Albany's tennis team for
the second year in a row as State lost
5-4 on Tuesday. The defeat ended
Albany's dual match winning streak
at ten.
Coach Bob Lewis called the two
teams "evenly competitive." The
close scores of five of the six singles
matches support his statement.
Albany HI Joe Kestcnbaum lost to
Chris Post of Massachusetts 6-1; 6-2.
Freshman Mitch Sandler, Albany's
#2 singles player, lost to Bill Karol 63, 7-6. Bob Diskin, Albany's #3, lost
to Barnaby Kalan in three sets, the
scores being 6-2, 3-6, 6-2.
Massachusetts^ Marc Oullet
triumphed over H Jon Weinberg 64,6-4 while Arthur Cloutier downed
(.5 Josh Conncll 1-6, 6-2 6-4.
Albany's only singles win came as #6
Leo Stcmlicht beat Kevin Gcrrihan
of Massachusetts 6-0. 6-7, 6-1.
Albany fared far better in the
doubles, as the Danes swept all
three. The number I team of Kestcnbaum and Sandler triumphed 6-2,64, the number 2 team of Diskin and
Weinberg won 6-3, 6-1, and
Stcmlicht was joined by Stefan
Taylor in winning the #3 doubles
match 6-1, 6-3.

Coach Lewis seemed perturbed
afterwards. "They weren't that much
better than we," he said, "but they
won the important points when they
had to, and we didn't." He added
that although his players haven't
changed since the fall season, their
patterns of play have. "We won the

On Saturday, the 8th annual State
University of New York Athletic
Conference Track and Field Championships will be held here at University Field. Coach Bob Munsey "will
get no sleep this week" in order to
make sure that this meet is run right.
There are 289 athletes entered by the
ten teams in the 17 events that will be
run, a very large number for a oneday meet.
Last year's champion.Brockport,
will be led by senior Mark
Lineweaver, who is entered in twelve
events. His time in the hundred, 9.9,
ties Pittsburgh's Harold Horton for
the top speed in that event.
Mike Lawry
checks in with the best time in the
220, 22.2, but is followed by two
Pittsburgh runners, Gary Oillisand
Harold Horton, both of whom have
run 22.3's. Paul Kirchoff, also of
Cortland, has an impressive 49.0 in
the 440 leading 0 illis of I'lattsburgh.
Anthony Haslam of Pittsburgh
and Tom Painting of Buffalo are the
class in the 880. Fredonia is strong in
the discus with Fred Siegler(l60'5")
and Joel Villani (I43'8") pacing the
field. Long jumpers Barry Crawford
of Plattsburgh with a jump of 22'l I*
and Randy Jacquc of Cortland are
the favorites in that event, while

faced with a similar situation in
last year's SA vice-presidential
balloitiug, Wax lost to Ira Birnbnum
in a run-off, though Wax received a
44';; total to Hirnbaum's 24';/ in the
original vote. Wax said. "It's possible that a similar reversal could have
happened this year, but I just
wouldn't feel right holding the
Presidency because of an election
law section that I believe is unfair."
Earlier in the year. Wax and Birnbaum co-sponsored a hill that would
amend that law to cut the needed
margin of victory, reducing the occurrence of runoff elections. The
reasoning behind the bill was that
runoffs in the past have been criticized heavily for their unfair and often
illegal electioneering, with the runoff
winner not always being the highest
vote getter in the first election.
"I ran the campaign how I thought it
should be run."
Meckler, who dislikes the term
"machine", explained that he was
"not in favor of 'railroading' candidates, however very lew students
are involved in theopcrationsofSA,
and the fact that many Central
Council members supported myself
and Andy was not a result of
promises or favors, but rather the
reflection of the fact that in working
with us often, they thought we were
belter qualified."
l.evenson. who ran an independent campaign, was "sorry that there
was so much politicking during the
race." l.evenson said he. "lacked the
time and resources to run a lull scale
and totally organized campaign"lidding that "one person can only do so
much." The Ombudsman will be
returning lo Central Council and
will be a University Senator in the
The turnout lor the voting was
heavier than previous SA elections,
and was partially attributed to
NYPIRli's extensive campaigning,
which paid off, The referendum was
overwhelmingly approved to give
the group $2 from every student's activity tax. Bauman attributed the
large turnout partially to the length
of the campaign itself: "The short
serious campaign didn't allow* for
students to gel sick of the whole
thing, as I've seen in the past."
Complaints were lodged against
the Class of'78's endorsement of the
Hauman-Meckler ticket. Mark
Bcneckc, '78's class president, and
campaign coordinator lor Bauman
and Meckler. was instrumental in
making (he endorsement. Meckler,
the V. P. victor commented, "I don't
think the '78 endorsement was fixed
inany way,and that the class council
members were acting independently-"
l.evenson believes that. "On the
basis that Bcneckc is so involved in
both groups, he shouldn't have made
any endorsements." Wax labeled the
endorsement another way: "This is
yet another case ol Mr. Benecke's

I he bill failed because of Central
Council's "railroading"at that
meeting, believed Wax. "The bill was
discussed late, at the end of one of
Council's longer meetings. Unfortunately, some people will vote
something down lo get it out of the
way rather than spend time on it."
Bauman. who received 4H.5'/f of

do whal he fell was right." Bauman

A year has passed. All live supervisors and both investigators at
Campus Security now curry tirearms
routinely, a lad they admit lo with
slight hesitation, bin just il s quickly.
Ihe memory ol past controversies
has not yet lell litem.
"Il seems tome that, il we do ihe
lull law enlorcemeut job, there's
really no valid issue about out people
carrying firearms." says James
lleitighan. Assistant Director id
Security, lleitighan defended the
bcaiing ol firearms by Campus
Police. He pointed out that, in
practically all cases, Univeisity
Police were the only respondents lo
crimes reported on campus. Hecitcd

emphasized Ihe lad that SUNYA
gets lis share of armed robberies,
burglaries, and drug-related crimes.
However, when asked whether it
was consistent with university policy
in aim any security personnel on a
lull-lime basis. Ilemghan cited whal
he called the "blanket authority" to
bear arms dial had been given to
Security several years back.
Ilemglian did not once mention Ihe
Senate bill ol 147-1. Instead,he
pointed to a policy statement dialled
several years ago and said confidently, 'Tor as long as Hcnezel has been

responsible lo Vice President lor
Managcmcnl and Planning John
Hartley. Hartley was mil immediately lamilini vvnh Ihe hill, hut when
handed a copy ol it, he quickly
scanned it and said. "I think we're in
compliance with this policy."
Asked il il were consistent with
university policy lor any member ol
Security lo carry arms constantly.
Hartley appeared startled, saying. "I
don't know whether they carry
weapons all I he tunc." When assured
that this was the case, he hesitated a
moment, then explained that this
was because "they don't have time lo
go hack lo the oil ice and get a
lireumv" when an emergency arises:
"the investigator's job is such that he
can'l predict."
When asked il Ibis same interpretation ol Ihe hill could some day
be used lo justify arming ihe entire
Campus Security force at all times.
Hartley said only. "We have I he least
amount armed that is possible to he
consistent with policy."
SA lawyer Sandy Kosenhlum
described Hartley's interpretation of
the hill as "baloney."
"I don't Ihink it's ii fair reading ol
the bill," said Kosenhlum. "Il [the
bill| docs noi imply that any police
officer will routinely curry it
lirearm." According lo Kosenhlum,
Ihe hill says that qualified University
Police will carry firearms "occasionally, from lime to lime, . . .
on occasion, when called for - but
not all Ihe lime."
