Ninth-Ranked Booters Face Red Dragons
by Nathan Salant
The Albany State varsity soccer
team faces its first major challenge of
the young season when they meet the
Cortland Red Dragons under the
lights at 7:30 p.m. in Cortland, in a
game to be broadcast live over
WSUA-640 AM.
Albany is ranked 3-0, ninth in the
State, 1-0 in State University of New
York Athletic Conference play,
while Cortland is number eight, 4-0,
3-0 in the Conference..
Last year the teams played to a 0-0
tie in Albany, and according to
Danes' Coach Bill Schieffelin, this
year's meeting of the "undefeated"
promises to be another well-played,
physical contest.
"They have a very consistent
team," said Schieffelin. The most important comment I can offer is that
Cortland has not played poorly .
against a good team during the past
few seasons."
Last year the Red Dragons were
undefeated in SUNYAC play, including an upset, 2-0, win over
Brockport. More importantly, one
loss was enough to drop Albany into
third place in the Conference last
year, behind Oneonta and Cortland.
"They have not given up more
than two goals in one game in the
past two seasons," Schieffelin said.
"Balancing that is that they are essentially i a low-scoring club"
The Red Dragons visited RPI last
week, and went home, l-O, winners

hopes that this will not be a serious
"We'll get therewell in advance of
the game, and we'll head out to the
field early so we can pick out the
poorly lighted areas," explained
Schieffelin. "I am more concerned
with the home field advantage than'
the time of ti.. game."
Cortland Solid
According to Schieffelin, Cortland is a team of solid players who
match-up well with Albany. The
lone standout is Jim Jordan, a
member or the 1974 All New York
State soccer team.
"This is a very big game for both
clubs," said Schieffelin. "We are
ranked ninth in the state, they are
number eight. Both of us are undefeated in the Conference, and last
year, one loss was enough to drop us
down to a tie for third place behind
Cortland and Brockport."
The Booters will go with Henry
Obwald in the net, and a front line of
Chepe Ruano, Matty Denora,
Frank Selca, and Pasquale Petriccione.
"We have the momentum as far as
the scoring end of it is cornered,"
said Schieffelin. "We've scored 18
goals in 3 games, and allowed one, so
offensively I believe we have an

"Aguilar has been doing an outstanding job," said Schieffelin of the
freshman who has filled in for the injured Rose. "He has played as nearperfect as anyone on the team. He

The halfback assignments also depend indirectly on Rose, as Rovito

Albany Has Momentum

While Cortland's defense may

should still find the net at least two

Pittsburgh had tied the scorejust
an inning earlier thanks to some
s h a k y Dane defense. Marty
Donahue led it off with a high pop
into short left. Shortstop Silverman
raced back, called for i t , and then
dropped it, Donahue winding up
on second. On the next play, Doug
Robert hit a sinking liner to centerfield, Nelson raced in under it,
appeared to have it, and then
dropped it, as Donahue held at second.
Bruce Close then dropped a
beautiful bunt over pitcher Paul
DeLello's head and when third
baseman Jim Willoughby slipped
trying to field it, Donahue raced in
all the way from second. That was
the only run Dane pitchers allowed
the entire afternoon. DiLello allowed only five hits (all singles, three of
the inlield variety) while striking out
eight and walking three.
Vanderhoff was pitching an excellent game himself. The Danes garnered only two hits the entire game
but made the most of their scarce opportunities. Besides the run without
the aid of a hit in the sixth inning,
Albany tallied once in the third on
only one safety.
Nelson was hit by a pitch to start it
off and promptly stole second on the
first pitch to the plate. Vanderhoff
then fanned the next two but came in
a little too close with a fast ball and
Jeff Breglio slammed it on a line into
leftcenter to score Nelson with the
first run of the game.
It was beginning to look as if that
was the only run Di Lello would need
until the Cardinals broke their scoring drought in the fifth-their first run
in twelve innings.
They later gave DiLello a scare in
the last frame when an infield hit and
a walk put two on with only one out.
Dan Pazzanese then sent a screamer
intoshort center for what looked like
a sure hit before Nelson came
scooting in to make a fine catch.
Another hard shot to left field was
taken and the ball game was over
with freshman DiLello picking up
his first varsity win ever. 'I was very
pleased.'said the coachof hisperformance. "1 kind of expected it from
him because he pitched fairly well'
against some tough ballclubs the last
few games... and I figured we could

first and a single up the middle by
Robert in t he third-and faced only 24
batters in the seven inning contest.
The only other runner was Close
again who walked with two outs in
the sixth and was stranded there.
After the Danes had built up their
quick 3-0 lead, the only question
was: How many strikeouts would
Dollard wind up with? The answer
was 12-a club high this year and
possibly also a personal high for
Dollard. "That might be the highest,
I'm not sure," said the man who is
now pitching his third consecutive
year on the varsity.
He had at least one whiff in every
frame except the sixth while fanning
the side on two occasions: thefourth
and the seventh. "He looked fine,
real sharp," praised Burlingame.

Library Survey Shows Book Losses
by Elizabeth Freedman
The alarmingly high rate of books
stolen, lost, or otherwise missing
from t he S U N Y A li brary has caused
a great amount of concern on the
part of University faculty members
and personnel.
In a recent survey to determine the
percentage of books missing from
the library collection in the last
academic year (74-75), two groups of
books were randomly chosen as
samplings. Both groups contained
1,000 volumes each. One group, containing books of over two years old,
had about 7% missing, or unaccountable for. Hie other set, which included newer books (under two
years old) had about 10% of its
collection gone. The books missing
were presumably still in the library's
possession, but had not been charged out to anyone on circulation.
Although the survey is far from
foolproof as an indication for the
percentage of books missing from
t he entire library collection, and only
hypothetical conclusions can be
drawn from the results, it does reveal
that a high rale of loss is a very real

"I don't think anyone has the right
to interfere with another person's
privacy or passage across a public
place," said Rosenblum. "This is
something they ISAJ should do with
all cases, not just the Socialists." he
added, emphasizing that SA has no
axe to grind with the Socialist
groups in particular.
Powers called this restriction unreasonable. "People don't have to
stand still and talk to them il they
don't want to," said Powers. "If people don't want them doing this, they
won't buy their newspapers."
According to Powers, no college
can claim the right to make such
restrictions by saying that it is not a
public place. Courts have upheld the
right of an individual to freedom of
speech in all areas generally open to
the public, even on private campuses. This would include, for example, the podium and Campus Center
lobby, but not such areas as the dormitories.

Frank Fioramonti of NORML
(The National Organization for the

last Thursday at the Campus Center
Ballroom against the existing
penalties lor marijuana use. He
brought with him dated public
health films warning of the dangers
of pot.
F i o r a m o n t i claimed t h e
Rockefeller drug laws, which established a minimum penalty for pot
use, are not justified by current
medical evidence. He attacked what
he called erroneous studies stating
that pot is very harmful. For example, one report's subjects, after
smoking grass in lab conditions,
were found to have an unusually
high proportion of brain damage.
"Only after the study was given wide
publicity," said Fioramonti, "did it
come out that many subjects were
heavy LSD and amphetamine
users...and four of them had
previously received severe head injuries!"
The speaker also questioned the
value of the Dr. Heath study, which
documented the deaths of some
rhesus monkeys who had smoked
the equivalent of 200 joints a day.
Fioramonti said the media neglects
the finding of the great majority of

Fioramonti attacked the enforcement of the pot laws, which he said
are "prejudiced against the young

the fact that "penalties for possession of an ounce are (potentially) the
same as penalties for grand larceny

injustice of "one man who was

Jackson Addresses Union Convention
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) The AFL-CIO, casting about for a Democratic
presidential candidate to support next year, has been warned by Sen. Henry
M. Jackson that the party will lose the 1976 election unless it has organized
labor's full support. Jackson was the first of four Democratic senators, all
presidential possibilities, to address the AFUCIO's national convention
today. Their appearance gives federation leaders the first chance to look
them over and evaluate the reaction of convention delegates who represent 14
million union members.

Ccttftrcnce,aldtsotgarriaed affair
hosted by. Massachusetts' Governor
Dukakis and New York (X Governor Krupsak, involved, on Saturday,
a series of forty-minute sessions with
each of five major candidates,
followed, the neat day, by a number
of organizational workshops. Fred
Harris, Congressman Morris Udall,
Senator Birch Bayh, Sargent Shriver
and Governor Jimmy Carter each
delivered a short address and
answered questions from the press
and public as many futuredelegates
from New York and New England
eyed their political wares. Two
s c h e d u l e d candidates, Pennsylvania's Governor Milton Shapp,
who was busy coping with last
week's flood, and North Carolina's
Terry Sanford, were absent from,
t h e conference. Sunday saw
workshops on Affirmative Action,
Delegate Selection and othertopics.
Some notes on the proceedings:
One would have to strive to uncover any tangible results of the
weekend's conference. The event, intended mainly as a showcase for the
candidates and their ideas; was one
in a series of regional conferences
that are being provided so that uncommitted Democrats can inspect
the candidates and begin to make up
their minds whil the committed
attempt to introduce The Man with
the Presidential
Homogeneity was the name of the
game here. As most of the participants were of identical mold New Democratic Coalition exMcUovcrnites — each candidate
made an effort to hew to the standard liberal line. As a result, substantive ideological differences in
their verbiage were narrow to the
point of invisibility.
Internal Warfare
The internal warfare that so
typifies Democratic politics was absent here. It appears that the Udallbackers and the Harris-supporters
have nol yel realized thai the
McGovern banner no longer unites
them. Membersofthevariouscamps
still mingled to reminisce about the
Spring of'72. It seems it will be a
while before it dawns on the N DCers
that the candidates' interests arc inimical.

Mystery Man
Mystery man of the conference
was George Roden, a self-declared
Presidential candidate operating out
of Waco, Texas. Roden, a minister,
has built a varied platform based on
his experience in "ancient politics".
Though Roden's most radical position is his advocacy of the use of
military force in securing cooperation from OPEC in holding
down oil prices, he lakes strong
stands on a spectrum of issues ranging from National Health Insurance
(for) to cattle import* (against).
From when dee* the Scripturequoang minister receive his support?

he claims, comes from the

Looking For Members
Two new groups. New England
College Democrats and the
Democratic Socialist Organizing
Commitee, were at the conference in
a search for new members. The
former, representing students in five
states, was formed this year and has
not yet developed a specific political
orientation. Its leaders are planning
a major February caucus and hope
thai by next year the organization
will be an important force in New
England Democratic politics. The
latter group represents a two-yearold merger of former Socialists and
liberal Democrats who have met on
the picket lines of the past fm
decades. The Committee proposes
that there is a place for Socialism
albeit diluted, in the Democratic
party. Their hope is not so much to
have a S o c i a l i s t candidate
nominated as to find a liberal one
who would be amicable to moderate
Socialist interests.

feels that if the city should default,
no one will purchase state bonds of
any type. Some of these state bonds
help subsidize construction at State
University campuses. An example is
the HFA bonds supporting the construction of the Amherst Campus at
Buffalo. "The New York City crisis
directly affects State University
students," says Weprin.
Weprin plans to distribute
petitions among college students as
well as sending a letter to the editors
of all Slate University newspapers.
Weprin emphasizes that the college
drive especially will focus on a show
of support since he believes that
college students are not ready to
purchase MAC bonds. Because the
bonds are not issued in the smaller
denominations, signing a petition
will merely indicate a willingness to
purchase them if and when they
become available. Plans for mailing
a letter to parents of SUN Y students
is also under consideration.
Directly relating to the matter of
default, Weprin says,"l don't believe
New York City is going to default.
It's not ready to default." But if that
should happen, MAC bond holders
will be paid before city employees, in
the opinion of the legal counsel to
MAC. Weprin feels that if everyone
in the state would buy a MAC bond,
"there's no question in my mind that
New York City would be saved."

city, Weprin commented, "At this
point, I think he's doing all he can."
Although there was a "time when he
wasn't doing his utmost," according
to Weprin, he "now realizes there's
an urgent need."
New York City is "not going to be
the end of the world," but that il will
adversely affect the city, the state,
and other large cities throughout the
United States. Weprin feels that all
state residents should realize a moral
commitment to the city.
Another local college student,
Jonathan E. Portnoy of Union
College in Schenectady, will handle
the petition drive for the state's
private colleges and universities.
Both Weprin and Portnoy have served as legislative interns. Weprin, a
political science major, is the son of
Assemblyman Saul Weprin(DJamaica).

Amid mounting concern over
New York City's fiscal crisis, the
"Save Our City Committee" formed
by Assemblyman Joseph F. Lisa(DQueens) and Mrs. Louis Armstrong,
widow of the famed musician, officially opened its campaign in New
York last Friday.
According to David Weprin,
SUN YA student and public college
coordinator for the committee, "We
want to show the 'big cats' that New
Yorkers themselves are interested in
saving New York City."
Weprin confirms that the committee will conduct a drive aimed at
having state residents indicate a
willingness to purchase Municipal
Assistance Corporation (MAC)
bonds in denominations of $50 and
$100. Presently the bonds are
available only in amounts of $1,000
or larger. If enough interest is
shown, according to Weprin, this information will be taken directly to
"Big M A C in the hopes of speeding
up their decision to issue the bonds
in smaller denominations.
Weprin describes the most important function of the "Save Our City
Committee" as the development of a
show of support for New York City;
the money is of secondary importance in his opinion.
As an explanation for the claim
that the fate of the state rests with the
fate of t he city Weprin says, "It's all a
question of confidence." Weprin

Although Kopf may, not be "doing anything about it" now, he may
be confronted with the responsibility
of enforcing a state "no smoking"
law in the near future. As of July I,
1975 State Senate Article 13-E has
been in effect. The law reads in part,
"It shall be unlawful for any person
to smoke tobacco in any. public

Oddly, it has not yet been established
whether the law is applicable to the
SUNYA buses.

The New York State Department
of Transportation is officially
responsible for making such
decisions and presently it appears
that little thought has been given to
the matter. Audrey Sternberg,

Citing problems of maintaining a
tight schedule, Kopf believes it is unreasonable to expect a bus driver to

Moore's last known address in
San Francisco was a house previously rented by a ccuple who had admitted to having acquaintances in

However, perhaps the strangest element of all is the report from Larry
Bensky, the news director of station

had interviewed Moore several
weeks ago, says he received a call
from her last week informing him of
Patty Hearst's arrest. The strange

says, is that he received the call just
prior to the actual time the F.B.I,

After approximately ninety days

S U N Y A President Benezet's

suggestions concerning the Psychology Department. One of the major points made by the committee
was that the department be given
three years to upgrade faculty,
graduate student and program quality. An increased allocation of
resources was not included however.
Last semester, a group was created

Benezet to recommend priorities for

made. Remaining optimistic despite
the Psychology department's failure
to place in the nation's top ten, Mr.
Gallup feels that with adequate support, his department's attainment of
prominence will be possible in a lew
This financial issue seems to be
one of the strongest bones of contention between the Psychology department and the Select Committee. The
Division of Social and Behavioral
Sciences (of which the psychology
department is a part), is the most
poorly funded of all those on the
Albany campus. The handicap of
heavy enrollments is augmented to
the problems of inadequate budget,
being understaffed and undere q u i p p e d . The psychology
department's rioctoral program is
one of the biggest in the College of
Arts and Sciences as well.
I hcrclorc.in response to this and
other statements, the Psychology
Department, led by Mr. Teevan,
prepared a memorandum to President Benezet requesting an opportunity tomect with any representative
who could explain certain facets of
the appraisal. According to Mr.
Gallup, this request was never
Secondly, the committee chose to
comment upon the five new faculty
members (including the chairman),
suggesting that these positions be
filled only after the thorough use of
procedures exercising "the very
highest academic standards". The
new chairman was also expected to
improve both efficiency and morale
within the Psychology department.
As a third portion of this recommendation, the committee counseled the
department to admit fewer graduate
students, with high standards being
called for once again. This denotes
past judgement on the
department's behalf in engaging new
employees. This new implication is
later reversed by a subsequent statement, praising some members of the
junior faculty for displaying promising behavior. By complimenting
these people, it is insinuated that the
department has indeed been adhering to high standards in their hiring
practices for t he past several years at
As to the other comments, Mr.
Gallup says that since his arrival, he
has felt that there is nothing wrong
with departmental morale and that
there is obviously a high efficiency
level presently existing (considering
all of the adverse factors with which
they must content).
The Select Committee also advised that all non-productive faculty
members should be assigned to
undergraduate teaching This would
allegedly free the more productive
members to conduct research and
aid the graduate students.'That
which is understood by the term
"non-productive faculty" is ambiguous. Perhaps that is why this
specific point was not responded to
in last year'smemo. However,taking
"non-productive factulty" to mean
those members not actively involved
in research, instruction, etc. and/or
those who are least capable, competent and enthusiastic. Mr. Gallop's
reply is "Since when did undergraduates become second class
citizens . . . at SUNYA'.'"
The department was also instructed to place special emphasis on
tboseareas in which it is relatively
well-qualified; these supposedly being the areas of both social and
clinical psychology. There is an inconsistency here though, because a
previous analysis of the psychology
department concluded that more
stress should be placed in the field of
general experimental. This external
report of three years ago, the
S o l o m o n Report, was commissioned by the University and consisted of a review of SUNYA's psychology deparment by three
nationally recognized psychologists.
Another complaint of the committee was geared to the question of
insularity in the psychology department. According to Mr. Teevan's
memo, there is some interchange
between the department and the
Biology department, School of
Business, Albany Medical School,
ec. Mr. Gallup also added to this
already impressive list, participation
in the Capital District Psychiatric
Center and the possibility of having
a joint PhD. in Child Psychology
with the Education Department.
Some of these liasons have been in
operation since the Solomon
Report. Besides all that, students
from t his department are also said to
take many more courses from outside the department andthedivision.
Former President Beiwiat appointed the Acadamlc Morritaa
Committee which suggested change* In thapayehology department
than those from most other
Perhaps the prime targe of the
department's defensive response is
the Committee's comments about
their graduate students. This
criticism seems to be nearly unforgivcable in the eyes of the department. Because so many more
applications are received by the psychology department's doctoral
program than any other in the Arts
and Science's, it is felt that students
who are accepted here are from
among the school's best.
In an attempt to explain the apparent contradictions between the
evaluation and the departmenal
beliefs, the committee has been said
to have ignored certain information
and to he guilty of prc-judging the
department based on the finding of a
previous report. However, this point
has yet to be substantiated.
Tribune Voice of Administration
by Cynthia Hacinli
O r i g i n a l l y e s t a b l i s h e d in
1970, to improve communications
within the university community, the
Tower Tribune continues to fill this
Those closely inNews
volved with the
publication, describe
Feature |, a s bring "informational" and "an unbiased journal of record."
I he Tower Tribune, a branch of
the Media Relational Office, was
begun in order to present an accurate
view of campus occurences.
Originally a two page publication,
reader interest spurred its growth to
lour pages.
Accordingto Nathalie Lampman,
Editor ol the Tribune, the paper is
concerned only with campus
happenings. Priority is given to the
reporting of acts of official bodies
(i.e. Faculty Student Association,
University Senate and Central
Council) and to curriculum
decisions. All reporting is factual
and there is little, if any. room for
Work on the Tribune begins on
Mondays, when the staff assembles
and discusses probable articles for
the nest issue. Thursday is the
deadline for all stories. On Monday.
6,(100 topics of the Tribune arc circulated t hroughout the campus. Last
year. 3K issues were published.
An average issue of the Tribune
includes news, sports, a complete
schedule of campus events called
"Campus Clipboard", a column entitled "Round the Campus", and
l-aculty i n f o r m a t i o n
publications and grants).
Small Staff
Because their staff is small, news
coverage is limited. Most of the information is given to the Tribune
rather than sought out.
Since the Tribuneis funded by the
administration, it sometimes reflects
the administration's point of view,
says L a m p m a n . Potentially
slanderous remarks are not printed.
Ron Jacobs, graduate assistant for
the department and reporter for the
Tribune sees this sell-imposed censorship as a means of "doing things
with taste."
Lampman admits that the
Tribune is a conservative paper in
terms of tone, make-up. and writing
style. She does feel that its "tight"
news stories and its clarity enable the
reader to quickly pick out the essence of a story.
When asked if the Timer Tribune
and the ASH have a similiar scope.
Lampman answered affirmatively.
However, she does not seethetwoas
competing publication. "I he Tower
Tribune is another vehicle of communication, another dimension of
Robert Rice. Managing Editor of
the Tribune, feels I hut competition is
inevitable and desirable when two
newspapers serve the same area.
Daniel Gaines, Kditor ol the ASH
elaborated on this, saying that he
would hate the idea of a monopoly
on communication and therefore
readily welcomes rival publications.
About three years ago I was experiencing frustration and defeat In my Hie as

While sitting on the bench during a soccer practice, a guy on the team invited
me to go to a meeting. The people there were reading Irom the Bible and called
It Bible study. They talked about God In a personal way and how Jesus was
living within them. They also discussed how Jesus had changed them from

Required Renaissance?
What ever happened to the Renaissance man? Students leaving SUNYA sometimes
feel they aren't worldly, that they didn't take enough of the of the different courses
available to them. The reason one goes to college is to become educated,atid students
who took all their courses in their major don't know very much ebe. Taking courses
from many departments makes true freedom possible by presently all the options, so
that the individual knows the various perspectives and pursuits available.
SUNYA is presently considering a return t o a policy requiring students t o take a
certain number of courses outside their major. At some schools this means required
gym, language, science, freshman english and New York State history. Elsewhere it is
less demanding The Council on Educational Policy of the University Senate is
debating those requirements, termed "distribution requirements", and Presidents
Fields is interesed in reinstituting them.
The requirements were eliminated partly because it was felt that the students
themselves can best decide their own education, and partly because of its effect on
comparative enrollment. (Some departments gained students, some lost.)
Students pay to attend, and should have the freedom to choose what courses they
take. Indeed, this has become a reason for choosing SUNYA, since intelligent and'
responsible students are attracted to a school where they can design their own learning
experience. Some students have not been affected since they must take formerly
required courses tofulfill their major or satisfy post-graduate work and others would
want to fulfill those requirements anyway.
Yet there are those students with regrets. Students should seriously consider taking a
language because it may be useful; one can take pride as a college-educated adult
knowing the purposes of mitachondria, the League of Nations and demand curves.
These years at a university are the last chance most students will have to expand their
Distribution requirements should not be reinstated, except possibly in a minor form
mandating only that a few credits be take.i outside the student's' major. Students are
responsible enough to control their own education, though it is reasonable to mandate
that there be a major.
The Senate's Educational Policies Council (EPC) should recognize that a varied
course distribution leads to a liberal education and that it should be encouraged, but
the EPC should not recommend that there again be requirements.

Untimely D e a t h
Death: A Legal Definition
KSlby David Troegcr
In St. Clare's Hospital in Denville, N.J.
' twenty-one year old Karen Ann Quinlan lies
languishing between life and death. She has
been in a coma since April IS and a
mechanical respirator that sustains her
breathing is all that keeps her alive today.
Having already suffered brain damage her
adoptive parents want Karen to be permitted
to die with "grace and dignity." But the young
woman's doctors refuse to let her die and the
respirator continues to function. Subsequently, Mr, and Mrs. Joseph Quinlan have turned
to Judge Robert Muir, Jr. of New Jersey
Superior Court. They have asked him lo
authorize the disconnection of the respirator.
Of course Karen's doctors don't wish her to
suffer anymore than her parents do. The point
is, though, that the doctor who "pulls the
plug" is undoubtedly afraid of being charged
with a criminal violation, since an affirmative
act of euthanasia - the taking of the life of
somvone who is hopelessly sick or injured for
reasons of mercy - constitutes homicide. The
major issue before this court hearing on October 20th will be whether the withdrawal of
life-sustaining procedures
should be treated in the same manner as euthanasia,
Upon investigation one begins to feel that
there is a definite distinction bet we m euthanasia and the withdrawal of extraordinary
life-sustaining devices. The former implies
death of those people who are no longer
capable of petforming a viable social function
because of their incapacity - be it because one
is aged, terminally ill or an invalid. Howshortsighted and ruthless!

death this weekend of Ray Glass, Legislative Director of SASU (Student
Association of the State University) is a se vere blow to SASU, all SUNYstudents and
the entire educational community in the state. His contribution tostudent causes while

Ray was hit last week by a car driven by a drunken driver, and this serves as still
another shocking reminder that driving while intoxicated can do incredible damage.
We mourn Ray's passing, and offer condolences to his family and friends.
a mind that is in complete touch with reality. A
mind that still acts as u force for inspiration
and still maintains aspirations.
Any person whose mind is intact - even
though he be on in years, or physically incapacitated, or Facing imminent death-is still
fully human and should be treated with subsequent dignity and respect. To rcmovethat person from society through euthanasia would
truly be an act of homicide.
The Quinlan case though is different and
goes beyond euthanasia. Her life continues
through i>.vlr«ordinary means; her existence is
now no better than that of an animal. That is
when the "plug" should "be pulled", when people are functioning purely as organ systems
due to some equipment that is hooked up to
Under the traditional test of death, life does
not end so long as breathing continues and the
heart beats. A few states, t hough - but not New
Jersey where Karen lives - have adopted the
definition that brain death, or the loss of
organized brain waves, is the legal end of life.
The latter seems a more valid criteria for
determining the point at which the continuation of human existence is futile and
worthless. The greatest of pains has to be the
pain Ihe Qulnlans are now experiencing,
watching their daughter die as an animal.
Euthanasia can cither be looked at as a subjective decision by the patient to commit
suicide or as an act of murder by the physician
who shuts off a life supporting machine. It is
understood that u cancer patient or elderly
person may wish to quietly leave this world.
But us a policy of the state it leaves itself open
to indiscriminate extinction of (hose who are
infirm. The ethics of euthanasia fall in gray
For Karen Ann Quinlan on the other hand,
the situation is to such an extreme that the
decision to let her die goes well beyond the ambivalence of euthanasia.

The Waiting is Over!
by Karen Zucker
Every now and then, everyone experiences feelings of frustration and
stagnation with their lives; in recollection, the past may appear to have been a
succession of meaningless episodes, and future prospects may appear equally
as dismal. The stronger among us persevere, with the hope that soon, the
burden of despair will be lifted, while those who are not as optimistic wait for
fate to wield its power and remove the misery in its entirely.
The early twentieth century tragicomedy by Samuel Beckett. Waiting/or
Godot, addresses this problem, and will be performed under I he direction of
Or. James Symons in the main theater "I the I'AC from October K through

Ihc play requires no elaborate scenery, and al first, one might be
disappointed with the use of dim lighting unddark muted colors.Thc secret of
the play's success, however, lies in the talent of the actors. Vladimir, played
by Nelson Avidon, and Estragon, played by John Ryder, exhibit a
panoramic array of emotion as the two men who are wailing for Godot.

realize that for the meantime you have no
place to live and just a date in court to get your
money back.
The best thing you can do is go to your
landlord. Tell him what is wrong with your
apartment. Whether it is improper lighting or
the lack of electrical sockets, let him know it is
his legal obligation to repair the violation.
Remember to be reasonable and calm because
you won't make any firends by acting like
John Wayne in a Viet Cong flag factory. The
best thing to start with is to say to him, "Don't
you think I'm entitled to it?" If this doisn't
work, the housing code becomes an excellent
tool of pressure, saving your from the hassles
of legal action.
If you think that your apartment may have
some code violations that are worth looking
into, contact the Bureau of Codes to get the
booklet. It might be in your best interest to go
to the Off Campus Association office for more
information and advice.

and confidential sources this paper has learned of the
most recent episode, which may well prove more
significant than earlier incidents.
The couple's daughter Hebe has been abruptly dismissed from her position as the cupbearer of the
gods. Zeus has replaced her with a young man whose
great beauty attracted his attention. The young man is a
mere mortal but of royal family: he is Ganymede, prince
of Troy. Zeus not only dispatched Eagle One to bring
the prince to Mount Olympus but even abducted him in
person. The photograph should be evidence enough to
convince anyone.
Ihc repercussions of this outrage have been swift.
Hera is said to be furious. Zeus has apparently

Salant Willi The
Batters Split
Slant On Sports
No one likes to lose, but as Coach Fred Taube of Cortland said, "When
two great teams meet, one of them usually loses."
There were many people who incorrectly viewed the, Albany-Cortland
game as a do or die soccer match-up which would crown the winner of the
State University of New York Athletic Conference.
Such'was definitely not the-case. Both teams have several conference
games remaining. Cortland travels to perennial powers Oneonta and
Brockport later this season, and Albany hosts Oneonta before travelling to
Brockport at the end of the season.
Whit was important was the test of Albany's highly skilled, but physically
small team against the roughest and perhaps the best team in the conference.
That's right, the best team, because on Friday, Cortland played the best
soccer game in its history and the greatest team effort ever seen. Its history
has always been at the top of the conference.
, .
Albany stood up very well against the Red Dragons. The Booters have
not hirig to be ashamed about. The season is very young, and two great games
are on hand for the Albany fans: Keane State (Saturday) and Oneonta (next
The 3,300 fans at the Cortland game were unanimous in their loud support
of the home squad, and respectfully rooted against Albany. Apparently,
some of those fans told a few people something, because Albany moved up a
notch in the State soccer rankings, from ninth to eighth, despite losing.
It makes you wonder what a win versus perennial national powers Keane
State and Oneonta will do.
JV Booters Nip RPI
by Brian Orol
Two overtime goals lifted Albany
State's junior varsity soccer team to
a 3-1 victory versus RPI Saturday.
The game opened slowly. Each
team had a number of early opportunities to score, but thefirstgoal did
., not come until RPI's Fred Reisch
broke the ice with six minutes left in
' the first half. Reisch was ahead of the
field, took a feed from Tom
Smithson, and beat Albany's goalie
Bob Jacobson to the lower left side.
The hair ended, 1-0.
During the halftime break Pups'
' Coach Evan Congress complained
about the general play of his team.
"You guys aren't passinggood out
there," said Congress. "The passes
are either too short or too long. RPI
is beating you to the ball. The halfbacks aren't anticipating the passes.
You've got to keep your passes quick
and sharp."
Congress' lashing worked at 9:01
of the second half when Peter Ciocio
scored, assisted by Doug Runkcl.
For the next twenty-five minutes
Albany kept the ball in the R PI zone,
but failed to take advantage of
several scoring opportunities, largely thanks to saves by RPI goalie Bob
Decker, and the game was sent into
(Soccer overtime consists of two

The Pups scored at 6:IOofthefirst

Albany's next home game is
Saturday versus Keanc State, one ol
the top teams in the nation.
The Pups continued to apply
pressure on Decker, and Stu Hubbs
converted during a scramble in front
of the Engineers net at 8:45 of the
first overtime, adding an unassisted
insurance goal.
The second overtime was
dominated by a relaxed Albany
squad. Congress began substituting
frequently to keep fresh troops on
the field as much as possible.
After the game Congress said the
star was Ciocio. "dodo's tying goal
early in the second half sparked us
and lifted us to victory," said Congress.
He also said, a total team effort
was the "root of the victory."
This game coupled with last
Wednesday's 2-0 victory over Siena's
varsity, puts the Pups on a winning
streak which will be put on the line
