Ihe .lames E. Allen Jr. Collegiate Center, established in 1972 us an
"experimental interdisciplinary curriculum in the Social Sciences, will be
terminated hy the end of this academic year, as a result of former university
President Louis I. Rene/el's decision last June.
Ihe decision was made alter a recommendation from the Select
Committee on Academic Priorities staled that the Allen Center was " n o t
sufficiently distinct to warrant a special program which lays claim to a
significant investment of resources."
While state budget cuts created a need for ihe removal of various degree
programs, faculty litem hers Deborah Kaufman and George L'rangos feel that
it was one ot the first programs to be cut because of its "experimental nature."
l-raiigus. a history teacher at the Allen Center, also feels that the program
suffered from a lack ol "constituency." lie explains that "the Allen Center
had no power and no friends. Many were suspicious ol a place that grew m i l
ol t he 'Mi's,"
According to Dr. Seth \V. Spellman. Dean ol ihe Allen Center, the
program was innovated between I9(>x-I972 to "establish a new college I "
admit students early, as well as to Initiate a new curriculum for
undergraduates based on the British Open University."
Originally funded h\ the Carnegie foundation "to ttdnelitike an
experimental, lime shortened degree ('Less l i m e - Mote Options
Document'), and authorized by the Hoard ol Irusiees. the James I . Allen
Center (named after the former Commissioner id b'tluviift ,M ol New York
Stale) began with 61 students mainly front ihe capital district." says Dr.
Spclhnun. As assistant to President Ucnc/el in 1970. Spellman and others
involved didn't led the program could work on the uptown campus T h e
integrity of the program could best he preserved in a new college."
Although the Allen Center is termed "college.'- il is actually an
interdisciplinary major entitled " M a n and His Institutions." According to
junior Ronnie Oslrofsky, the first two years id the program tire spent taking
i n t r o d u c t o r y courses in the Social Sciences, while the last two years deal
with the live major institutions (Lconomy, f a m i l y . Lducatmn. Government,
and Religion- Morality) and an internship." Dr. Spell man says the internship
program allows students tti "actually test what thev arc learning" out in the
"real world" through this program. Last semester, internships tune nllcred
through the New York Stale Assembly, which included positions with the
Legal Aid Society. Regional Planning. New York Court ol Claims and
various other governmental and economic agencies.
Due to lite small student-teacher rutin at the Allen Center. Dr. Spellman
explains t tl hi a "contracting system which provides students with more
program flexibility, is possible." I his system allows lite student to make any
change in a course syllabus lo suit his or her goals, "as long as it meets the
objectives ol I he course." Lor example, "otie student registered I in a course in
ihe Allen Center with ti contract t " complete Ihe objectives ol the course in

Only I.Vft percent ol Allen Center freshman changed then major last year.
Meanwhile, an approximate IK3 students are enrolled in lite Allen l enter

"It is difficult to switch schools or pick a new major at this point. Most
students arc going into sociology or political science because it is iheensiesi

General counsel Charles D.
Ablard, declined to answer in open
session as to whetherthe Central
Intelligence Agency used "the result
of your research" in actual
operations in foreign countries.
Ablard said that the "motivating
factor" for the tests in the first place
was a report lo the Army surgeon

Oct. 21, 1951 after the doctor hud

Aside from the threat to U.S.
troops the drugs presented, and their
potential use to get information
from American intelligence agents,
Ablard said the information more
significantly "indicated that an alternative to nuclear weapons might be
available, a weapon which might
render large forces helpless-but only
temporarily- and without any permanent damage to those forces and
none to their surroundings."
•Lt. Gen. Richard R. Taylor, the
Army's surgeon general said that, to
the best of his knowledge, the drugswhich at three forts, in mass field
experiments-were never used against
foreign forces. The whole research
thrust was abandoned in 1967
because of "the unpredictability" of
LSD andiother psycho-chemical
agents, he said.
Taylor said that, while "wemay be
missing some documents," the Army's investigators of the d rug-testing
program so far have found no
evidence that the portions of it involving psycho-chemical agentssuch
as LSD were properly authorized
before 1958 or'1959.

network for weeks has reportedly

A Wry FSA.
SUN YA's system of providing student services is economically advantageous, buta
detriment t o its original purpose. Faculty-Student Association (FSA) is a non-profit
corporation, but a corporation never-the-less. FSA is now efficient and financially
sound but serving the university is distinctly a second priortiy to its own financial
Last year's mad McCarthy-like attack on everything related to FSA on the part of
some members of Student Association was essentially a reaction to the fact that FSA's
largest constituency, students, had neither complete control nor were the primary
interest of FSA. Whether this is a worse situation than the alternatives is a subject fora
night-long barroom debate, but within the context of the present system students
should continue to increase their input and power in FSA affairs.
FSA is dealing with students on gut issues: eating, pinball, barbershops, laundry and
so on. This year will bring some issue or another into public scrutiny, and hopefully

made which included the use of two taps t o

that a letter should be ..ent to each December

For example, the Rathskeller snack bar no longer serves sandwiches, though heros,
hamburgers and hot dogs are still available. The reason FSA has done this is. on the
surface, sensible: They want to eliminate duplication between the Campus Center
Cafeteria and the Snack Bar. Now. if you want a sandwich at lunchtimc you go to the
cafeteria, and if you want a hamburger you got to the Snack Bar. There is. however, a
problem when the cafeteria is closed. Students wanting night-time snacks can n o
longer have sandwiches anywhere on campus. Dinner possibilities are limited also.
What t o do? FSA could have sandwiches at Ihe Snack Bar when the cafeteria is
closed. But there is an opportunity hwere to revive one old Student Association idea.
Ihe Sandwich Truck.
If some vehicle went from quad to quad during the evening making sandwiches,
students would gel their sandwiches hack and an added convenience too.

A Conversation Piece
by Harvey Kojan-
Those of you who are new SUNYA students
have probably arrived on campus with some
pre-conccived ideas and expectations about
university life However, if one of them is that
you wil be enlightened and entertained by
your fellow students and faculty members,
forget it. We veterans of Albany campus life
know better. Hut until recently, we could never
quite figure out why. Finally, through extensive research and analysis (plus a couple of
bowls on the side) everything became clear.
And although certain segments of the university have tried to quash our findings, we have
Question: Why is almost everyone on this
campus familiar, uninteresting, and downright boring?
Answer: Because everyone says the same exact things.
Yes. it's shocking but true. When you come
right down to it. you. your friends, your acquaintences. and everyone else associated with
SUNYA say the same things and have the
same raps in the same situation year in and
year out.
Balderdash, you say? Well, we have the
documented evidence to prove our
allegations. Last year we began conducting a
large and comprehensive research project. It
lasted from August 2d, 1974 to May 26, 1975,
thousands of conversations were randomly
taped, edited, compiled, and processed. The
results: students and faculty arc basically
limited to six areas of discussion: sex, drugs,
food, grades and courses, weather, and
vacations (sounds like Jcopardy"and when
you hear this sound, the round..."). Not less
thun 92.7% of all the interactions we studied
concerned one of these topics (and the other
7.-1% were disregarded and unintelligible,
mindless babbling).
Ilulldinky, you reply? I suggest you conduct
your o w n little experiment. Carry a tape
recorder around all d a y a n d hold it in your
friends' faces (they'll love y o u for it). Bring it
back t o your suite o r a p a r t m e n t , listen t o it,
and you'll hear the same lines repeated over
and over. Such a s :
" H o w was your s u m m e r vacation','"
"What did you get last semester?"
" I his loud sucks!"
"Man. check out thai piece over there!"
let's gel d r u n k , stoned wasted,
plastered, etc!"
"Shit, it's winter already?!"
" I h i s veal is s o d a m n greasy, youneedl(K)
napkins t o dry it o u t ! "
"What's your major?"
Although those six were the major topics,
close contenders were M U S I C (if I hear o n e
more word about Springsteen) and S P O R T S
("I he Yankees/ Mets, J e t s ; Giants/ Rangers
Seriously, when was the last time you heard
a discussion o n politics, violence, a n d discontent? Or perhaps a conversation concerning the Middle East. Boston's
problems, or New York City's financial crisis
(how many people still think the only Big Mac
in t h e world h a s t w o a l l beef patties...?)?
Maybe even a cerebral talk on religious existential philosophy ( d o y o u ascribe t o the
Huherian or U n a m u n i a n point of view?).
Luckily, for inosi of y o u , these few
topics will interest you e n o u g h t o keep you
from a n early d e a t h . Instead, you'll merely
slugnale like the rest of us. Then, when your
lour years conic to a close, y o u c a n enter a
whole new spectrum of conversation: "What
the hell am I going to d o N O W ? ! "
Well, there's always d r u g s , sex...

bjt Jama A. Michcntr
Don't be too calculating. Don't be too
scientific. Don't let the shrinks terrify you or
dictate the movements of your life.
There is a divine irrelevance in the universe- and many men and women win
through to a sense of greatness in their lives
by stumbling and fumbling their way into
patterns that gratify them and allow them to
utilize their endowments to the maximum.
If Swarthmore College in I92S had
employed even a half-way decent guidance
counselor, I would have spent my life as an
assistant professor of education in some
midwestem university. Because when I
reported to college it must have been apparent to everyone that: I was destined for •
/ cannot tell you how often I was

some kind of academic career. Nevertheless,
I was allowed to takcSpanish, which leads to
nothing, instead of French or German,
which as everyone knows arc important
languages studied by serious students who
wish to gain a Ph.D.
I cannot tell you how often I was penalized
for having taken a frivolous language like
Spanish instead of a decent, self-respecting
tongue like French. In the end, I sacrificed
my academic career,
Instead, 1 continued to putteraround with
Spanish and found a dtcn affinity for it. In
the end, I was able to write .« book about
Spain which will probably live longer than
anything else I've done. In other words, I
blindly backed into a minor masterpiece.
There are thousands of people competent to
write about France, and if I had taken that
language in college I would have been
prepared to add no new ideas to general
knowledge. It was Spanish that opened up
for me a whole new universe of concepts and
I wrote nothing until I was forty. This tardy beginning, one might say this delinquency, stemmed from the fact that I had spent a
good deal of my early time knocking around
this country and Europe, trying to find out
what I believed in, what values were large
enoughtoenlist my sympathiesduringwhat I
sensed would be a long and confused life.
Had I committed myself at age eighteen, as I
wasencouragedto do, I would not even have
known the parameters of the problem, and
any choice I might have made then would
have had to be wrong.
It took mefortyyearstofindputthefacts.
As a consequence, 1 Have never been able
to feel anxiety about young people who are
fumbling their way toward the enlightenment that will keep them going. 1 doubt that
a young man—unless he wants to be a doctor
or a research chemist, where a substantial
body of specific knowledge must be
mastered within a prescribed time—can
waste time, regardless of what he docs. I
believe you have tillage thirty-five to decide
finally on what you arc going to do, and that
any exploration you pursue in the process
will in theend turn out to have been creative.
Indeed, it may well be the year that
observers describe as "wasted" that will
prove to have been the most productive of
those insights which will keep you going. The
trip to Egypt. The two years spent working
asa runner for a bank. The spell you spent on
a newspaper in Idaho. Your apprenticeship
at a trade, these are the ways in which a
young man ought to spend his life.the ways
of waste that lead to true intelligence.
Two more comments. Throughout my life
I have been something of an idealistoptimist, so it is startling for me to discover
that recently I have become a downright
NieUchean! Ifindthat the constructive work"
of the world is done by an appalingly small
percentage of the general population. The
rest simply don't give a damn...or they grow
tired...or they failed to acquire when young
the ideas that would vitalize them for the
long decades.
Can you hang on through the crap
they throw . . .
I am not saying that they don't matter.
They count as among the most precious
items on earth. But they cannot be depended
upon either to generate necessary new ideas
or put them into operation if someone else
generates them. Therefore those men and
women who do have the energy to form new
constructs and new ways to implement them
must do the work of many. I believe it to be
an honorable aspiration to want to be among
those creators.
Final comment. I was about forty when I
retired from the rat race, having satisfied
myself that I could handle it if 1 had to. I saw
then a man could count his life a success if he
survived—merely survived— to age sixtyfive without having ended up in jail (because
he couldn't adjust to the minimum laws that
socity requires) or having landed in the
booby hatch (because he could not bring his
personality into harmony with the personalities of others).
1 believe this now without question. Income, position, the opinion of one's friends,
the judgment of one's peers and all the other
traditional criteria by which human beings
are generally judged are for the birds. The
only question is, "Can you hang on through
the crap they throw at you and not lose your
freedom or your good sense?"
1 am now sixty-four and three-quarters,
and it's beginning to look as if I may make it.
If I do, whatever happens beyond that is on
the house...and of no concern to me.

Readers of the Classieal Forum will, it ii helped, enjoy another of
Herodotus' slightly naive but charming stories. This one takes place in the
ancient kingdom of Lydla (Asia Minor) in the 7th Century B.C.
"Now Candaules conceived a passion lor his own wife, and thought shewas the most beautiful woman on earth. To this fancy of his there was an
unexpected sequel.
In the king's bodyguard was a fellow he particulary liked whose name was
Gyges, son of Dnscylus. With him Candaules not only discussed his most
important business, but even used to make him listen to eulogies til his wile's
One day the king (who was doomed to a bad end) said toCiyges'll appears
you don't believe me when I tell yoti how lovely my wife is. Well, a man
always believes his eyes better than his ears: so do as I tell you eontrievelo

Gyges gave a cry ol horror.'Master.' Itcsiiid.'whal an improper suggestion!
Do you tell me to look at the queen when she has no clothes on? No. no: "off
with her skirt, off wilh her shame" you know what they sa> of women. Let
us learn from experience. Right and wrong were distinguished longago and
I'll tell you one thing that your wile is the most beautiful ol women: so for
goodness' sake do not ask me to behave like a criminal'
Thus he did his utmost to decline the king's invitation, because he was
afraid of what might happen if he accepted it.
The king, however, told him not to distress himself.' I here is nothing to be
afraid of. 'he said, 'either from me or my wile. I am not layinga trap for you:
and as for her. I promise she will do you no harm. I'll manage so that she
doesn't even know that you have seen her. Look: 1 will hide you behind the
open door of your bedroom. My wile will follow me in to bed. Near I he door
there's a chair
she will put her clothes on it as she takes them off. one by
one. You will be able to watch her with perfect ease. Then, while she's walking
away from the chair towards the bed with her back to you, slip away through
the door
and mind she doesn't catch you.'
(iyges,since he was unable to avoid it. consented, and when bedtime came
Candaules brought him to the room. Presently the queen arrived, anuGyges
watched her walk in and put her clothes on the chair. I hen just as she had
turned her back and was going to bed. he slipped softly out of the room.
Unluckily.thc queen saw him.

shame she felt by screaming, or even let it appear that she had noticed

man to be seen naked.
For the moment she kept her mouth shut and did nothing; but at dawnthe
next morning she sent lorCiygesalter preparing the most trustworthy of her
servants for what was to come. I here was nothing unusual in his beingasked
to attend upon the queen: so Gyges answered the summons without any
suspicion that she knew what had occurred on the previous night.
'Gyges,' she said, as soon as he presented hi mself.'there are two courses open
to you. and ytui may lake your choice between them. Kill Candaules and seize
the throne, with me as your wile; or die yourself on the spot, so that never
again may your blind obedience to the king tempi you to see what you have
no right to see. One of you must die: either my husband, the author ol this
wicked plot.; or you. who have outraged propriety by seeing me naked.'
for a timeCiygeswas loo much astonished to speak. At last he found words

"Hearts and Minds" examines the American

that devastated one society and polari/ed another.
I his film is a controversial documentary, drawing
upon historical record and incorporating interviews
photographed specifically for the project. "Hearts and

William Westmoreland, former Secretary of Defense,
Clark Clifford, Senator William f ulbrighl, and Walt

the war.

"It is a movie about the war. It is neither pro or aniiAmcriean: it is an attempt to understand what we have
done and what we have become. It is more

From the liberal Paris daily, l.e
by Eric Rouleau
In Palcsinian eyes, Israel is no
longer a tough, pureheartcd pioneer
nation. As the press exposes financial scandals and Government corruption in high places, the unprecedented rate o f inflation (more
than 40 per cent a year) provokes
strikes, demonstrations, and riots
among the underprivileged, especially Jews of Eastern European origin.
Signs of the recession have surfaced
in various branches of the economy,
with unemployment, already at
about the 20,000 mark and threatening to increase.

In addition, the Danes will meet
the Ithaca Bombers, last years'
Lambert Trophy winners (number I
in small college football) at Albany,
September 20 at I p.m., for the first
meeting between the two teams.
Albany in only the second year of
a varsity schedule, led the nation in
rushing with an average of 361.6
yards a game. Number four in total
offense, the Danes averaged 482.4
yards a game and 40.8 points, good
for number three in the country.
The entire backfield, the main
thrust of Albany's triple option
offense, is returning.
Quarterback John Bcrtuz/.i, who
Couch Ford calls "very capable and
an intense leader", is back at the
helm, directing the Dane offense.
Bcrtuzzi completed 42 per cent of
his pusses last year for4l2 yardsand

will be awesome. He is up to 225
pounds and still runs the 40-yard
dash in 4.7 seconds."
Behind DeBlois is Roy Fillbrook,
who Ford is extremely plcascdwith.
" He's another big one with speed,"
says Ford, "but right now he's
recovering from a hamstring pull."
The halfback position is well
stocked with both of last years'
regulars, Orin Griffin and Glenn
Sowalskie was second on the
squad in rushing, totalling 644 yards
in 70 carries for a 9.2 average, and
led the team in scoring with seven
"Griff ran for 620 yards, and was

Both have excellent speed and arc
good blockers according to Ford.
Sophomores Tim Ridgeway and
Dave DuPrc, both of whom saw
limited varsity action last year, arc
the backups.
"The split end job fight now
appears to be a dead heat," according to Ford, as Hob Baxter, Jim
Pollard, and Don Whitcly battle for
the starting spot."
"Bob blocks well, runs a very disciplined pattern, and has good
hands," Ford continued. "1 guess he
has a very slight edge."
"But Pollard and Whitcly have
been putting on some pressure. You
can see how much they want to play,

If there is one giant hole in the
Danes' offense, it's at the tight end
position. Tom Cleary, last years

left Albany.

athletes ever to attend State,"
lamented Ford, "andhisabscnccwill
This brings us to the most important positions, and according to

The kicking game will once again

Al Martin, who tallied 44 extra
points and 3 field goals last year, including a 47 yarder, and who will
