This would involve hiringfour or five
nationally known scholar-teachers,
at theexpense of several junior faculty positions.
Some members of the faculty feel
that undergraduate education will be

English professor Jeffrey Berman,

last November by three outside

recommendations include:
•The appointment of a new chairman who is "a nationally known
scholar. . .about to retire."
•Removal of junior faculty
members and students from the
tenure process.
•The recruitment of at least four
nationally know scholars, who
would be given tenure immediately.
"Ultimately, I don't think its
realistic," says faculty member
Martha Ro/clt, speaking about the
plan. "I don't think we will gel a

economic state of the university and
the State of New York, it's probably
unrealistic to try to hire a number of
people at a very high salary."
Dean of Humanities Ruth
Schmidt, when asked where the
money for these people would come
from, admitted that "The university
has not at this point promised togive
more money." She said that, because
of this, program cuts in other
departments would be "inevitable."
Financial problems arc not the
only ones that will be encountered in
the implementation of this plan,
according to Professor Larry Rics.
He feels that the department's
current state of demoralization will
keep away any prospective teachers.

Nun8 Living Together Illegally
GLEN RIDGE, N.J. (AP) Five nuns
accused of violating a local zoning
ordinance that prohibits nonfamily
members from living in single-family

religious vows, their attorney says.
The nuns, each facing fines of up
to $20,000,, are to appear in
Municipal Court next month on
charges they are illegally living
together in a house zoned as a onefamily residence.
The ordinance they arc accused of
violating states "that only those
related by blood, marriage or adoption can reside together in a single-
family dwelling." Similar ordinances
have been adopted in many communities around the country.
The nuns are also accused of
violating a zoninglaw that prohibits,
in single-family areas, the parking of
more than three vehicles at houses
such as the one the nuns rent, Each
woman has her own car.
Summonses were issued to the
nuns, members of the Sisters of
Charity, a Catholic teaching order,
when neighbors complained they

borough officials. The officials said
the ordinances have been on the
books for years.
Harry St. Clair, mayor of this
affluent commuter suburb near
Newark and New York City, said the
street the nuns live on looks like a
used car lot.
"If five hippies had been living
there, having wild parties, it
wouldn't have caused a stir if we asked them to move," said St. Clair." We
can't legally distinguish between
nuns and hippies."
According to Maurils Modin, a

for violation of the ordinances call
for fines of up to $100 per day.

SUNY Central's revision of a patent waiver agreement is failing to
meet the approval of the United University Professors who claim the
policy still restricts their freedom to
discuss their research.
According to SUNY Research
Foundation officials, the patent
waiver form was originally designed
to simplify the many patent
agreements which
researchers must sign before receiving funds. A patent waiver agreement gives the University the rights
to a researcher's inventions or discoveries.
The modified version of the policy
was the result of a hearing held last
October to allow the U U P to present
their grievances to SUNY Central,
Originally, the policy would
restrict signers from disclosing "any
information . . . relating
to . . . discoveries or inventions to
others . . . without the written approval of the SUNY Research Foundation."
The new version allows research
information to be divulged to
academic colleagues and students
but restricts disclosure to the outside
"It's still not acceptable . . . if it
remains as it is now", said UUP
spokesman Rex Trobridge, "We will
persist in our grievance in accordance with formal procedure."
Professor Jerold Zuckerman of
the SUNYA Chemistry Department
was the first to raise questions about
the original patent waiver. He
brought his grievance to the attention of UUP, who in turn arranged
for the hearing with SUNY Central.
There, Zuckerman presented the
reasons for his objections to the patent waiver. "We're spending 40
million dollars a year and we're not
going to tell people what's going on?
That's the antithesis of what a university's supposed to be. The Board i
of Trustees policy exists. It's good
enough. I don't know why we need
On November 25, the UUPreceived a decision from SUNY Central.
This was in the form of an altered
draft of the original patent waiver.
UUP found this second draft to be
just as unacceptable if not worse
than the first one.
Academic freedom: United University Professors (UUP) la •till unhappy with lha revised patent
policy which they aay prevents instructors from sharing research findings with students.
However, Trobridge doubts
whether SUNY Central will accept
this subsequent complaint. "1
suspect that they will say that they
recognized the difficulty with the
original patent waiver but the new
version offers itself as an answer."
If such is the case, UUP will carry
its grievance further. This process
wiU begin with an appeal. If this is
refused the next step is a hearing
with the State of New York. The
final step is binding arbitration
between Zuckerman and Trobridge
and SUNY Central, at a public hearing.
The UUP will also be channeling
its efforts in another direction—that
is, to dissuade SUNY faculty from
signing the second patent waiver. "If
there is a mass of refusal," says
Trobridge, "SUNY Central will be
under great pressure to do
something. However, if only a few
people don't sign it, pressure could
be exerted upon them in the form of
withholding grants."
Evidence of such pressure already
exists. Zuckerman has in his possession a copy of a letter written to a
SUNYA faculty member. Dated
December 15, it begins as a letter of
congratulations for approval of the
WSUA-FM Draws Nearer
As FCC Gets Application
niili bit
by David Winzelberg
WSUA's application for an FM
broadcast license was received by the
FCC last week, bringing the campus
radio station the closest it's ever been
to FM/Stcrco reality.
WSUA is seeking a construction
permit for a Class D Educational
FM station to operate at90.9 on the
FM dial. According to Station
Manager Eric Goldstein, the proposed FM transmitter will have a range
of about three miles and will produce
a "good, clean signal."
"I he application for the FM
channel, containing about 100 pages
of supporting exhibits and
documents, took a year to compile.
Last year WSUA hired Educational
FM Associates, a firm which
specializes' in constructing FM
applications for universities, to help
ihem with the technical aspects of
the FM channel request.
Legal notice of the FM application will run in the Times-Union today and tomorrow. It announces
that the application, containing a
"complete list of the Officers and
Trustees of the applicant is available
for public inspection during normal
business hours,' in Campus Center
Associate Dean for Student Affairs, Robert Squntriglia, who acted
as a go between for the radio station
and SUNY Central said that the
Federal Communication Commission will probably decide on the FM
request by summer and feels that
there's a good chance of hearing
WSUA-FM by August. Squatriglia
worked on the application with Sanford Levine, Deputy Chief Legal
Counsel for SUNY Centra! to
"establish requirements and criteria
and provide information."
Squatriglia also cited an "excellent
performance by Eric Goldstein and
his staff in building the very complete, very exhaustive application."

President for Research, says, "Bull!

"The morale in the English department is horrendous," says Rics.
There's a sort of elite group running

Fields presents a more optimistic
view of the department's
position:"We'll have a hard time. .
but if we make clear our determination lo be first rate and that we're
willing to pay the price, Ithinkitcan
be done."
Ries docs not feel that the price is
worth paying. "If you bringfive people in at the lop, you'rejust not going
to be able to hire anyone for another
25 years," he says.
Currently, 34 out of 46 positions
in the English department are
tenured. If, us the evaluators say
they anticipate, about "half of the 12
untenured assistant professors ultimately gain tenure," that will bring
the total number of tenured
positions to 40. The addition of five
scholars to the faculty would then
make that a total of 45 out of 46
positions tenured.
Acknowledging that this situation
could result from Fields' plan, Vice
President for Academic Affairs
Philip Sirotkin said,"We have less
flexibility when we get close to 100
percent tenure, but if thefacultyis of

a longtime critic of WSU A-AM, said
that most students want an FM station. He said, "I think the school
needs an FM station."
The antenna for WSUA-FM will

Fields' plan for the department
will "destroy a long tradition of

that "most of the faculty realize that

remains the reinstatement of the

Telethon Gets An Early Start
Ruthless Pre-Meds Cheat in Labs
by Mare Leve
Auditions have already started for

scheduled for March 19-20, and wilt
continue through February. Though
this may seem like a longtime away,
planning is already in full swing for
what has become one of SUNYA's
main annual events.
This fund-raising affair will take
place in the Campus Center
Ballroom, as it has in previous years.
The theme this year is "look to the
children". The goal is to beat las'
year's total of $16,000. All of the
money raised goes to the Wildwood
School for developmental^ handicapped students.
Some of last year's most successful
acts such as Chet Arthur and his
Flaming Aces will return. International students will have acts and

will also take part. The Telethon

even look the other way."

hopeless cause of weeding out
offenders, others believecheatingindicates underlying problems in the

averages is an unfortunate way to
select good practitioners of
medicine," says Albert Gelhorn,
director of the Centerfor Biomedical
Education at City College of New
In 1970, according to Gelhorn,
pre-med students from several universities told him:" 'We cheat. We
try to give wrong information to our
colleagues. We sabotage chemistry
experiments.' Things have gotten
worse since then," said Gelhorn.
"Pre-med school is a cutthroat
The solution to cheating, says
Gelhorn, begins with a reexamination of medical education.

A special Federal task force issued
tough new recommendations this
week in an effort to stop persons
from establishing new identities.
The task force, appointed by the
Justice Department, recommends
stringent crackdowns on the
issuance of birth certificates to
members of the public.
A c c o r d i n g t o t h e group,
thousands of Americans have obtained copies of another person's
birth certificate, and have used the
document to then acquire new social

even passports in that other person's

death records by computer, so that

recommends that special inks be
used on birth certificates — ink
which could not be copied by commercial copying machines.
Hundreds of fugitives, including
Patty Hearst, are known to have
used the birth certificates of dead individuals to establish entirely new
With America's 200th birthday
less than six months away, the Flag
Research Center in Winchester,,
Massachusetts, is out with the dis-
illusioning news that the Betsy Ross
story is a fraud.
Researchers at the center say that
Betsy Ross did not sew the original
stars and stripes; they add that the
original American flag actually contained a small replica of the British
union jack as part of the design.,
Doctor Whitney Smith, the
author of 11 books on flags, tells us
that no one even heard of Betsy Ross
until 1870 —just before the United
States celebrated its 100th birthday.
In that year, the Doctor says Betsy
Ross's grandson came forward with
a story about how his grandmother
had sewed the original contintntal
Doctor Smith says that the Betsy
Ross story contained so much
charm, everyone believed it without
checking out the facts. He says that
many Patriots were eager to swallow
the Betsy Ross story because they
wanted to blot out the memory of the
British Union Jack being depicted
on the early American flags.
Doctor Smith says that a
thorough check of the Continental
records discloses no references to
Betsy Ross or her flag.

The tascr is a hand-held device
about the size of a flashlight. It fires
two inch-long barbs up to 18 feet
which hook themselves into a victim's clothing or skin. The taser then
shocks its victim nearly senseless

California admits that the stun gun
has been used at least 20 times in the
past year — one half of those incidents involving criminals.
Victims struck by taser darts say
they were incapacitated by the electrical jolts for up to 10 minutes time.
Alvin Simon, the Vice-President of
Taser Systems, said the decision by
the Canadian Government "came as
a complete shock."
The taser is still legal in the U.S.

According to the American

the Soviets plan to use radio
telescopes to scan hundreds of nearby stars in an effort to pick up and

Soviet astronomers believe the universe may be teeming with intelligent life — but that there are so
many stars to study, picking out the
right ones might take decades.
One Soviet theoritician has
suggested that a highly advanced
civilization might — after millions of
years — totally re-engineer its own
solar system. According to this
theory, those advanced beings might
gather energy by completely enclosing their own sun and redirecting all
of the heat and light back to their
home planet.
As a result, the Soviets will also

of "Dial A Joke", but how about
"Dial An Argument"?
An Australian couple started a
"Dial An Argument" service last
week, and they say their phones
haven't stopped ringing since.
The Melbourne couple, who call
themselves only"Frankand Aileen",
said they started the "Dial An Argument" service "as an outlet for
frustrated people."
Well, apparently there are a lot of
frustrated people in Melbourne: the
couple report that on the first day
alone, they received more than 100
calls from people wanting to wrangle
and dispute over various things.
"Frank and Aileen" say that finally,
weary and'hoarse, they had to quit
and take their phones off the hook.

The alternative filmic experience since 1954.
Throne of Blood
$.50 with ID
This is Shakespeare's Macbeth, with an
oriental flavor. It is directed by Akira
Kurosawa and stars Japan's leading actor,
Toshiro Mifume. This film is a unique interpretation of the hard's bloodiest play.
Although Ihematically similar to Uie original
play, "Throne of Blood" is eullurally removed
to Japan in the Kith century, a time of constant civil war. If nothing else, this production
is a grcst testimony to the universality of
Shakespeare's thought.
JANUARY 23, 1976
WELCOME TO 1976. The Albany Student Press is
greeting the spring semester, the new year and the
bicentennial with some small cosmetic changes. We
won't be able to print every issue in red, white and
blue ink but we will be changing the look of
aspirations unlimited, our arts section, and
ASPects, our magazine section.
Last semester's once-a-month ASPects
magazi,nens,ele4rriied toevoke.a ' o t of "What the hell is
thisT' and "Where's the regular A SPT So, in an effort to dissipate some of the confusion, we've decided to combine the magazine with the arts section
and pull everything together under the name
This means that every Friday you'll be able to
find the arts — films, plays, music, books, television, fiction, poetry — as well as features on all subjects in this nice, handy, removable eight-page section. ASPects will become sort of a catch-all for
everything that isn't hard news, sports or editorial
Meanwhile, the aspirations name will live on
in the Tuesday edition of the ASP, dealing with the
arts only j - more specifically, with the events of the
previous Aeejftnd.
' Furtrer -announcements: To help you out on
dull weekends, the preview/leisure page will add a
calendar of community events. Regular features
like The Classical Forum and Media Madness will
still be with us, as well as a new semi-weekly column
on jazz and soul, The Musical Spectrum. Enjoy.

There's a classic Bonanza episode with ol' Slim
I'ickins playing a mountain man who's accused of
shooting his partner in the hack over some pelts and
Slim skedaddles up to the mountains to avoid getting
his neck stretched and Moss Cartwright vows to go on
up there and bring Slim to justice but Slim's not real
keen on the idea so he and Moss start smashing eaeli
other over t lie head wit It covered wagons and cainpfires
and boulders and everything else they can uproot until
they both collapse in a heap. That's Leslie West. The
heap, (iross, sweaty, tasteless. Furiously inert. hasn't budged an inch in eons. The Leslie West
Hand used to be West. Bruce and l.aing used to be
Mountain. still crashed away on the guitar. I .es still
sings like he's trying to tear the t o p oil somebody's
:onvertible with his teeth. What's missing is the hluesy,
more lyrical contrast of the Bruce/Pappalardi vocals
that put the flash in those earlier songs.
Tastelessness will probably be the virtue that earns
Leslie West a niche in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Rock & roll would undoubtedly have farted itself into
oblivion years ago if its champions hadn't had the
precious, and eminently exploitable, knack for delving
into all realms of bad taste and prcservingthem in vinyl.
Not too many Beatles' fans are going to prostrute
themselves before Les in awe and thanksgiving for this
rending of " D e a r Prudence." Les has the subtlty of a
ravenous hammerhead shark when it comes to voca'
interpretation. Same with "We Gotta Get Out of This
Place," which could well have been the high point of
Eric Burdon's career. Burdon's vocal was insistent —
desperate but defiant. Les launches a bonzai charge at
the song. An A lor Effort. The real low blow, though,
comes on "Sea of Heartache," a rock steady headless
beast of an instrumental. 1 mean, a Robin Trower
imitation. Only Les would have the balls to rip off a
Hut "The Twister," "Get It Up ( N o B a s s Whatsoever)" with its Corky l.aing gattling-gun
drumming exhibition, the viscious, slashing "By the
River," and "Singapore Sling," a tasty,' nebulous
acoustic piece written by guitarist Mick Jones, are ali
decent rills. Les' problem is that he really doesn't know
how to start or finish his tunes. He just squats down in
I he middle and flails away. Jones, al least, knows how t o
vary a I heme.
Really what it comes down to is: how crazy are you
about had taste? Personally, I'd much rather hear Les
than Yes. bill the thing is, with a little luck yon can
probably unearth an old Mountain album in Ihe budget
bins and really get the most for your money. So why

Would someone please help me? I'm a student at The
State University of New York at Albany and I am
presently on a Guadamalian freightor headed for
It all started the first week of school when I wanted to
change my schedule around a bit, well, to be truthful, I
wanted to change it around completely.
I went to my advisor, who wasn't in, but who posted a
note on her door (in reality it wasn't her door, because
she had her office changed). Anyway, it didn't tell me
that she had her office changed; all it said was that she
wouldn't be in that day and to go to the head of the
Biology Department (I'm a bio major) and he would tell
me what to do. He gave me an add-drop card and a little
advice and I was on my way.
It's very distressing, after using the computer, the
head of the Physics Dept., and the man who fills the
vending machines to find out that you can't get into any
of the 46 pages of classes in the Schedule of Classes
booklet because of some conflict, or it's already closed
out, or you don't need it to graduate.
I went back to sec the head of the dept., but, instead,
found my advisor (the one who wasn't in). We went up
to her office, not the office that had her name on it or her
note on it, but the office (hut was supposed to bcanothcr
one of my professors, but was hers. She helped me—
that is, get more confused. Right when I thought there
was no possible help, she confirmed it and sent me to see
someone else. I searched for his room and found it, in
the English Oept. He was a little perplexed and he said
that he had a hunch that he knew someone who might be
able to get the job done.
I finally found my connection, and to tell the truth,
the janitor for the Campus Center was very helpful, in
telling me of someone else who could help me. 1 next
found myself washing dishes in the Colonial Quad
kitchen next to the Chief silverware dryer who was to
tell me where to go next.
Now, I really do think the head foreman at Building
52 in the General Electrics Complex was a little off the
truck, hut, nevertheless, I pushed on. I honestly thought
I was getting someplace, like a private room in the loony
ward at Bcllvue. Hcscntmetoaschoolin Nome, Alaska
where I might get a few answers. I arrived as night was
falling and had to wait six months before I got to see
anyone, seeing as the nights are six months long there. It
was there that I was told to go to TOMSFASOM,The
Outer Mongolian Sausage Factory and School of
Medicine where the High Priestess would finally be able
to set the problem straight.
Well, you can probably guess, it was u deadend. And
that's how ligot to where I am now. I think I'm just
gonna work on this freightor for the rest of my life, I
mean, at least I got a job, if you can call shoveling coal
into a 120° oven on your way to Singupore a job,

Misly morning. Dew drops on grass.
Everything damp.
Walk on: hum on; stalk the prey before dawn.
Sun starts lo rise. Broken twigs beneath.
Limited time. Moving on; faster, pursuing.
Sight deer; remain motionless; still.
Very slowly, cocked weapon raised.
A pull, a crackle, an inslant death.

Count Dracula, I
wait for you, windows open
to the waning moon,
praying curses, spitting on Madonnas
and reading Revelations in reverse.
I envy the pale devotees
who II utter at your feet
and bare their fangs
at smothered babies
squirming in a burlap bag.
I have imagined meeting you
at night in a secluded room,
sitting nonchalantly
in a velvet easy chair
with an empty verre a vin
and a prole-cigarette,
you politely rise to greet me,
and apologizing for the lateness of the hour;
you toss another log upon the dying fire
and chat of chimeras,
Attila's rolling eyes,
Basilidcs' epistles
and the secret sign
of John Buttadcus.
Dracula, you cunning gentleman,
your melancholy Wettschmen
infects mc with desire,
your wonderful mal-occhio
petrifies my flesh
to mule paralysis:
Dracula, kiss me the terrifying kiss
that you bestow on both
the bridegroom and the bride,
Teach me the hate in love
thai breeds defiance of the gods.
Endow me with the separation in embrace
thai satiates eternal youth,
Count Dracula, deliver mc,
Come feed me and be fed.

"Any of you kids want to take water skiing lessons?
You get four lessons for fifteen dollars."
"Hmmm, how long are the lessons? How many days?"
"Days! It's one day. After four lessons we'll have you
skiing and liking it or you'll get your money back."
"I'll think about it."
"Think about it. Listen, honey, I'm a salesman. I'm
not asking you to spend a lot of money. I'm telling you
about a good deal. And all I hear is,'I'll think about it.'
What are you kids, students'.1"
"That's right."
"Where are you from?"
"Albany. We came down on a trip sponsored by our
"Well, you know, I just can't figure you kids out.
When 1 sent my son to college, he knew what he wanted
and could make decisions. But when he came home, he
was as confused as all of you. Just can't make up your
minds about anything."
We sat up, ready to argue, but the man had walked
away, his thongs flapping sand in our faces. After a
twenty-eight hour, flatten your ass, bus ride, we had
arrived in Miami in time to enjoy the afternoon sun.
Instead, we had gotten a sales pitch and analysis from a
complaining father. Things had to get better.
They did.
Collins Avenue, Miami's strip, wasahavenfor young
people during the week we spent there. Every beach,
bar, and night club was crowded with kids. And it
seemed that a natural schedule prevailed in which days
were spent beach-hopping and nights, bar-hopping.
"Both your drinks are two fifty."
Wc gazed at the waitress. She didn't look like she was
"You must have made a mistake. I ordered a beer and
my friend is drinking club soda."
"No mistake. They're each two fifty."
What the hell, it's our vacation. Wc rationalized our
money away each night. But the bars were nice and the
bands played music that made us squirm in our seats,
aching to dance. Everywhere on the strip, people were
doing the Hustle and chain dances we had only seen on
T.V. In AlbwiVfiwe had never thought of learning the
Hindenburg: A Bomb
steps but in Miami, we learned them quickly.
We all competed i n an undeclared race toseehowtan
we could get in a week. Each day, we scrutinized
ourselves to see the lines where our bathings suits ended
and our tans began. Whether we darkened into red or
brown was unimportant as long as some color replaced
our winter paleness.
"Watch out. Vou're burning. You better go inside."
"I feel all right. I'll stay out a while longer."
"You'll be sorry tonight."
Many were sorry, but a sunburn didn't prevent
anyone from partying at night or soaking up more sun
the following day. In between rain, forty degree
weather, and token trips to relatives, we had to get tans
that people would notice.
Visiting relatives seemed to be a universal duty in
Miami. On alternate days, we were punctually picked
up by retired relations who drove us to downtown
Miami apartments or suburban condominiums for a
free dinner. Leaving the strip was a cultural shock. In
contrast to masses of youth, we saw a society of white
haired people in baggy shorts and uniform orthopedic
shoes. A city saturated with older people was a startling,
depressing sight and we were eager to escape it.
The strip, which seemed to be taboo to people over
forty, was equally artificial. But the glamor of the
beaches and bars was enjoyable and we banned talk of
both another crippling bus ride and another semester.
Despite all our prohibitions, both the ride and school
were unavoidable and came much too quickly.
"So what did you do this vacation?"
"I went to Florida. Can't you see my tan?"
"What tan?"
What tan? Hah. At least 1 can see that line where my
bathing suit ended. Too. bad no, one else.can,,
Paula Lockheart & Co.
Play Jazz and Blues
by Gloria Jean
The Freeze-Dried Coffeehouse is
still with us, though some of us may
not have sampled it's many tastes,
from original folk, country, swing
and 30*s blues, to the corn bread and
banana bread. Tonight and
tomorrow night breaking in the new
semester is a New York City based
blues group, Paula Lockheart & Co.
Best described as a 1930'sjazzand
blues band, Lockheart sounds uncannily like Billic Holiday and draws
her songs and style from her and
other women from that era. Peter
Ecklund, the most famous member
of the group, played horn with
David Bromberg for over two years
and toured with Greg Allman. His
album work includes backing such
renowned artists as Bonnie Raitt,
Maria Muldaur, Paul Butterfield
and Paul Seibcl. Others in the group
arc Bob Montalto on piano and
back-up vocals, formerly of Powell
St. Ja/z Band from San Francisco;
Mimi Hact, from Ohio, on back-up
vocals and guitar; and Bill Mullins,
also from Ohio, on bass.
The group is varied and hot, and
will open the Freezc-Dricd to a
rhythm & blues filled weekend.
Doors open at 8:30 in the C.C.
Assembly Hall; show starts at 9:00.
Free with student tax card, 75c
without. Pick up a semester calendar
at the door or at the C.C. Information Desk for planning ahead. The
Freezc-Dricd is every Friday and
Saturday night.

The Mahavishnu Orchestra has disbanded, leaving a
hole in electric jazz and possibly beginning a new music.
Their leader, John McLaughlin, who goes through
more changes than a chameleon, has decided to disband
the group and get into something new. The move may
cause some changes in the world of jazz.
The Mahavishnu Orchestra was formed in 1971 by
McLaughlin, an internationally known guitarist
famous for his work with Miles Davis, among others.
The group introduced the first fusion of jazz, rock, and
classical styles of music. Their success paved the way for
the many musicians who now are performing this type
of music. They gave performers like Billy Cobham and
Jean-Luc Ponty the notoriety and the fan support to
branch out on their own. The group's success has sagged
as of late, and that factor alone could have caused the
McLaughlin himself had been under the teachings of
guru Sri Chinmoy. McLaughlin's hair was kept short,
he meditated, wore only white clothing, and abstained
from meat, cigarettes, alcohol and drugs. Now,
McLaughlin has all of a sudden changed colors.
Recently, he was seen wearing modern clothing with
his hair styled. He was also seen smoking a cigarette and
drinking a beer. Of his change he said his teachings were
extremely valuable, "but things change and people
change." He now wants to get into acoustics with some
Indian musicians and form a foursome. The group
would create "a real musical fusion of East and West.
His ambitions bring out questions about why the group
was disbanded.
In Rolling Stone magazine, bassist Ralphe
Armstrong of Mahavishnu was quoted as saying that
the change "was out of the clear blue sky." He said "it
kind of hurt, the group was tight, both musically and
personally, but John goesthroughsomanychanges." In
other words, if the decision was well thought out, he
would have consulted them. McLaughlin was the
group; the others couldn't continue as Mahavishnu
without him. There arc different ideas as to why he
would just leave his friends like that. At this point, it
appears only McLaughlin knows why he did it.
Former Mahavishnu Laadar John McLaughlin
McLaughlin's future is secure, with an album out this
month, two electric jazz albums in the future, and
something coming from his new group, which hasn't
been named yet. The album this month is entitled "Inner
World" and is Mahavishnu without its strings and
horns. Wc will have to wait and see if any significant
new music is brought out from his new group. More
importantly, we must wait and see if this signals a
decline in popularity for electronic jazz artists in
general, or just a decline in McLaughlin's popularity. It
would be ironic for the downfall of electricjazzto begin
with its originator.
Drummer Lenny Whiteof Return to Forever says the
group's members do solo albums "to keep the group
fresh." White, who released an album last month
entitled Venusian Summer, feels the group can pool
their thoughts as solo musicians and create new ideas
for the group. Hope it works, their albums need
Silver Convention is now a three female vocal trio.
Seems the other musicians didn't want to tour, so they
quit. Someone should get them to come back because
they made "Save Me." The trio may work out alright;
but ihey were primurily background vocalists on "Save
Me." The group was more an i nstrumcntal group, with a
funky bass and lead strings their trademark. Now the
music will have to change for the three women. The
quej'ionis, how will everyone take tothem after having
a "Fly. Robin, Fly" sound pounded nip our heads?

After all the negatives I've stated
about this film, there is one positive
comment that can be made. There
are spectacular, visual sequences of
the Hindenburg in flight. Many of
the views from the ship, ice-bergs
floating in the ocean and city
skylines, are visually stunning.
Most spectacular is the sequence
of the crash itself. Film clips and
photographs from the actual 1937
disaster are interspersed with Wise's
own, fine destruction sequence.
Photographs and segments of the
film are stopped periodically to
heighten the effect. These film sequences add some enjoyment to The
Hindenburg but they do not save it
from being a disappointment.

Concentration on such minor
characters as "the smuggler" was
wasteful because it took time away
from the possible greater development of the major characters. These
characters, Scott, Bancroft, William
Atherton and Roy Thinnes, were
given narrow, simply defined roles.
Only Anne Bancroft managed to rise
above the stiltif ying script toaeheive
any real life.
For the most part, the characters
offered little the audience could sink
its teeth into. When the Hindenberg
finally blew up I found myself not
caring who died, if everybody died,
or even if the whole state of New
Jersey went up in smoke.
The structure of the plot provided
another serious blowtothefilm. The
suspense which could have been
achieved by Scott's efficient narrowing down of the number of suspect
passengers is thwarted by the early
revelation of the real'culprit, (or

How "About An Alternative
Shabbat worship experience...
by Alan Fricdmann
promotional push for The Hindenburg during the Christmas season
netted at least one victim — me.
Interest-pricking television commercials, together with an excellently
edited preview managed to
maneuver me to the doors of the
Hellman theater. Spurred on by
promotional magic and expectations
of great acting by George C. Scott
and Anne Bancroft I arrived at the
theatre hopeful.
What I then encountered was so
thoroughly disappointing I was
dumbfounded — dumbfoundedthat
producer-director Wise could take a
story chock full of potential, the
talent of Scott and Bancroft, plus
thirteen million dollars and still
manage to come up with such a
In retrospect, what amazed me
more was how the promoters made
the film look so good. After considering this 1 realized that most of
the edited segments in the commercials and preview came from the last
twenty minutes of the film the part
which encompassed the explosion
and destruction of the airship.
Because of its realism and excitement, these last twenty minutes were
the best of the film. However, even
this was bad because the valuable
audience preparation which should
have preceeded it didn't.
This preparation should have
been accomplished through a plot
which involved the audience in the
fate of the airship and its passengers.
The Hindenburg's plot didn't and
the script deserves much of the
blame for this. The development of
the characters through dialogue and
action was minimal. "

Basketball and the Super Bowl;
hy Lea Leila
The professional team sport with
the moat d a n ii basketball. The
proximity of the large, half-naked
players to the fans invites partidpation. Only in basketball do I have a
fear of audience/player contact. An
extra dimension of excitement is
added each time one ofihese powerful giants leaps into the stands after a
driving lay-up. The phobia of being
drenched with someone else's sweat
contributes to my vigilant participation.
Watching hockey live 1 tend to fall
apart from the players as though I
am looking at fish through the glass
divider. I feel the most ostrasized at
huge spacious stadiums,, especially
football games. At least you can see a
baseball player's face. Football, with
its jousting knights in plastic armor,
represents one extreme in
audience/player relationships and
basketball, with it's flashy underwear garbed atheletes, the other.
The latter invites active participation while the former is the epitome
of vicarious viewing. Seeing basketball live and on T. V. are two diverse
experiences. Live or on the box,
football, in all its glory, is pretty
much the same event. With the use of
10 different cameras and close zoom
lenses, the essence of tough football
is even enhanced by television.
Why more class in basketball? In
basketball, the culminaiton of each
season's playoffs is simply called,
"The Championship Playoffs". No
hype needed. The fans supply all the
exdtement. In hockey we have the
Stanley Cup; playoff;u In alt fairness,
these fans also supply all the hoopla
needed to create an event out of a
championship. However, they lose a
few points in dass because there are
more than a few people who do not
know who Mr. Cup is.
Calling baseball finals the World
Series is excusable since it is the
sport officially sanctioned by our
government. American chauvanism
at its best. However, the most
pretentious of all final contest titles
is the one called Super Bowl.
There are three common uses of
the word super: I)" Hey, that dress is
super"; 2)"It's a bird, it's a plane,
plar it's
Superman"; and 3) Phyllis George to;
her fdlow sportscasters, "This really
is a Super Bowl".
Admitedly, this Super Bowl was
one of the best media sports
packages since its inception. The
past championship highlights were
refreshingly creative and entertaining. The half time show was the
biggest surprise. In these times of
Bicentennial overkill, the 1976 Super
Bowl half time extravaganza was
done with taste and restraint. I could
even hear what words were being
sung. But all these positive aspects
would still total a minus if the game
The Classical Fo^nj-jp**************^
was at boring as in the past. The
game, after all) is the event. And
since Pittsburgh won, how bad can it
Of course, CBS executives feel the
only way to keep women glued to the
television set is to show something
"girlie". So, we saw a Super Bowl
fashion show and talked, to the
player's wives about Coach Landry's
decision allowing them to sleep with
their husbands the night before the
game. And I always thought it was
masturbation that hinders your
Tune in next week.
The Wit And Wisdom Of The Spartans
The andent Spartans were not
given to much speech-making.
Rather, they knew how to say much
in a few words, to be condse. Such
speech to this day is called Laconic,
after Laconia, the district of which
Sparta was the capital.
The Spartan Chilon is counted
among the "Seven Sages" of Greece,
keeping company with such notables
as Solon of Athens and Periander of
Corinth. Some of our sources attribute to him the most famous of all
Greek maxims, "Know Thyself."
A collection of famous Spartan
sayings was made by Plutarch (ca 46I2S A.D.), an admirer of the old
Spartan virtues. Many of these
sayings, as one might expect, ha veto
do with martial courage.
When the Spartan King Agesilaus
was asked how far the boundaries of
Sparta extended, he flourished his
spear and said, "As far as this can
reach." The Spartan King Agis,
when he observed how high and
strong the walls of Corinth were,
asked "What women live in the
place'.'" Sparta itself was unfortified,
and the legendary lawgiver Lycurgus
is supposed to have remarked that
the crowning glory of a city is men
and not stones.
At the famous battle of Thermopylae in 480 B.C. one of
Leonidas' men remarked that,
because of the arrows of the Persians, it was impossible to see the
sun. Leonides replied, "Good, then
we shall fight in the shade." A Spartan woman, in answer to her son's
complaint that his sword was too
short, said, "Add a step to it."
The Spartan system of education,
or rather training,wasmostaustere.
When Spartans were asked what
boys ought to learn they were apt to
respond, "That which they will use
when they become men," or similar
words to that effect. Obedience, service, and respect for the law were
greatly valued. One Spartan, having
been condemned to death and being
led away, seemed quite happy. In
response to the inquiries of some
bystanders he explained, "I rejoice to
think that I must pay this penalty
myself without begging or borrowing anything from anyhpdy.!h.„.
The Spartans were wont to use
this manner of speech even in their
foreign relations. When Philip of
Macedonia approached Sparta he
inquired of the Spartans whether
they wished him to come as a friend
or a foe. They replied, "NeitHer."
At least one Spartan, however,
had a rather twisted sense of honor.
King Cleomenes—known for his
part in the expulsion of the
Pisistratid tyrants from Athens in
S10 RG—once conduded an ar-
mistice of seven days with the
Argives, Sparta's traditional rivals,
then attacked them half through the
armistice at night. When he was
reproached for his violation of the
oath, he said that he had not included the nights as well as the days in his
pledge, and that anyway, whatever
ill one can do to one's enemies is
regarded, among both gods and
men, as something vastly higher t han
justice. Spoken more like Odysseus
than like a true Spartan!

A Political Poke in the Chest
JANUARY 2 3 , 1 9 7 6
It is that time in American life when
everything takes on the tinge of politics and
political implications. Foreign policy is no exception. Undoubtedly the big foreign policy
issue on the campaign trail this year will be:
Dealing With the Russians. The "in-thing"
seems to be to lake a hard line.
After the debacle in Vietnam we more than

as a tough virile figure. It can be called the
"John Wayne" syndrome. That is perhaps why
everyone seems just about ready and willing to
give the Russians a black eye. The dominant

but a poke in the chest. A black eye inevitably
provokes a fight. You poke someone in the
chest to get one's attention; it causes one to
listen to what is being said.
Example: Those who think that we've been
soil with Russia and feel that we've been getling the raw end of the detente deal would advocate standing upto the Russians in Angola.
It represents a testing ground of sorts. Why
should it be, though'! Let's stay out so the
Russians can find out for themselves what it's
like to sink in a quagmire. The more prudent
and diplomatic thing to do would be to: I.
Oive the Soviets less of our goods, 2. Buy less
Russian trade items including oil, and 3. Take
a tougher bargaining stand at theSALTtalks.
Recently in the New York Tin\escolumnist
William Safire described the present period wc
arc now entering as Cold War 2. Detente has
run its course and we are coming upon a new
period of cold relations with the Soviets.
Safire says there are three weapons we have
with which to fight this Cold War: 1. The new

the yearning of millions
of people in every corner of llie world for
freedom and democracy.
Inherent in the "new weapon" is friendship
and cooperation. It is the "poke in the chest."
Exchange of wheal and other food stuffs underlies a much broader exchange between the
Soviet Union and the United Stales. In an interdependent world coexistence is not only a
necessity for national survival, but it is also a
building block to a lasting peace between the
Friendship is a two-way street, though. If

them, who will? Step on their tail a little and
one would bet they'll pull it in. We're not talking about spilling blood in order to prove
ourselves to the world. We're talking about a
little tough talk, a little straight talk. If the
Soviets don't like it we cun cut off the trade we

As high-powered CIA operatives are
dispatched to Angola with millions of
dollars of bribe money as well as
helicopters, missiles and other hardware,
you may ask, "Why, WHY this new
potential Vietnam in AfricaT'
What we see now in Angola is the
emerging part of the iceberg of SovietAmerican relations and the interests and
motives which determine our
government's world policies. As you may
already have heard, Angola is a very rich
morsel of the former Portuguese empire.
It's nearly as big as Alaska but all in the
temperate zone. It has many millions of
acres of rich farmland . . . gold,
diamonds, rare and strategic minerals of
all kinds . . . and oil, big oil offshore
along its 1,000-mile South Atlantic coast.
Next door, Rhodesia and South Africa
boast the thickest coal seams in the World,
the biggest gold mines and the richest diamond fields. Angola's very rich farmland,
prosperous industries and vast natural
resources arc up for grabs. That is why
our CIA and the Soviet KGBare slugging
it out there. Nobody knows where that
slug-fest is going to take us. Our government has had clandestine — covert
operations in Angola ever since the
Eisenhower Administration, when the
anti-communist, staunchly proAmerican Salazar regime was in power in

But those operation) were getting
nowhere until Henry Kissinger came into
office as President Nixon's segundo — in
charge of foreign affairs. Using his
powers as the White House chief
operative of the CIA, he "destabilized"
the anti-communist regime in Portugal
and assisted in the socialization of the
Lisbon government.
Of course the Soviets were also duly
represented. The big idea was to give the
bum's rush to the white regimes in
Southern Africa — Portuguese Angola
and Mozambique, English Rhodesia and
Anglo-Dutch South Africa. A grandiose
scheme, the South African Trading Zone
(SATZ), was to supervise the white man's
rule in the area. In that grand scheme the
Rockefeller family, together with its
allies, the Rothschilds and the billionaire
' Oppenheimer family of South Africa,
were to be on the ground floor. They were
to divide among themselves the entire
boodle — the immense wealth in gold,
diamonds, other minerals and oil to be
found in the area.
Kissinger had in his corner the Prime
Minister of South Africa, John Vorster,
whose prime purpose seems to be to
sacrifice Rhodesia's English settlers to
gain time for himself. It was a beautiful
plan —financially— for the Rockefeller
family and the international bankers.
But things went wrong. The Soviets
also had ambitions in Angola and arc in
there now with thousands of Cuban
troops and sophisticated Soviet equipment. And Kissinger has been forced to
turn to South Africa to rescue the

Reactionary scum from different regions of the world are assembled in the columns

racialist and imperialist forces in Angola is a defiance to all freedom-loving peoples.

The position of Congress is shaped by fear of a Vietnam on African s o i l . . . . But
the U.S. holds some winning cards. . . .The U.S. is one of the few countries that can
provide the Russian people their scanty supply of daily bread.
Svenska Dagbladet, Stokholm, Sweden (conservative).
Despite White House alarmist language, this is not a new-isolationist reaction.
Congress wants voice in foreign policy and most Senators feel the U.S. has no vital
interests at stake in Angola.
Corriere delta Sera, Milan, Italy ((independent).
Chinese representative Lai Yal-li denounced the two superpowers, particularly the
Soviet Union, for their acts of interference in Angola and pushing hegemony in Africa.
He said the Soviet slander about Chinese "interference in the internal affairs of Africa"
is the despicable trick of a thief crying "catch the thief."
Ta Kung Pao, Hong Kong (Maoist weekly).
In some ways the challenge is no less momentous in Angola than it was a decade ago

Steve Weisman sank a three-foot
rebound shot with two seconds left
in the game to give Panama Red a
32—30 upset victory versus Chosen
Five in League I basketball, Monday.
The Red entered the game trailing
the undefeated Chosen Five by a
game and a half in their battle for
first place; their lone loss coming
against GIO early in the season.
After a slow first half which ended
in a 14—14 tie, the Red opened a
seven point lead on a pair of three
point plays by Steve Schantz and a
Weisman free throw, only to have
the Chosen Five storm back to take a
27—26 lead with less than two
minutes to play, as Brad Biggs ran
off four uncontested field goals.
The lead see-sawed, and then
knotted at 30 all with eighteen
seconds to play and the Red in
possession. A set play eventually
opened up a ten-footer for Rich
Kapner which hit off the rim, but

with a 96-93 win against Urbana in
the first round of the Muskingum
Tournament, but suffered the loss of
Cavanaugh in that one. The Danes
dropped the championship match to
the hosts, 61-59, without their sixfoot, seven-inch freshman center.
With Cavanaugh limping heavily
and playing well below 100 percent,
the Danes met disasterinthe Capital
District Tournament, losing to RPI
79-65, and falling to Union, 72-49.
In the three defeats, the Danes
shot just 36.5 percent from the field
and 60 percent from the line, after
recording 47.5 percent and 72.1 percent in their first five games.
At Southern Conn, the Danes lost
more than a ballgame, as
Suprunowicz hurt his knee while the
Danes blew an eight-point leadinthe
final four and a half minutes of the
game. While Albany's field goal
percentage improved (53.6), the
Danes were 4 for 10 from the free
throw line.
The four game skid ended in
Geneseo with a 73-58 win, but
returned the following night with a
63-62 heartbreaking loss at Buffalo.
Albany played both games without
Suprunowicz and Audi (flu), but
Kevin Keane came off the bench to
score 29 points and haul down 17
rebounds to take up the slack. In the
Buffalo contest, the Danes twice
overcame 14-point deficits only to
have the game taken away from
them when an official ruled time had
expired before Bob Barker was
fouled, thus preventing him from going to the line and possibly changing
the outcome.

The Braves usually play on Tuesday and Friday nights, but Snyder
said he would prefer a Wednesday

Under terms of the Sabres' lease,
the hockey team is the primary tenant and has reserved Wednesdays
for the 1976-77 season.
Earlier this week, Snyder said he is
selling the team and has an offer
from Miami interests, but said he
would prefer selling to Buffalo area

He said he is willing to sign a long

Women Hoopsters Crush Siena

Albany State's Women's Varsity
Basketball team scored their first
victory of the season 71-37 at Siena
Wednesday to even their record at
one and one.
The Dancttcs lost to Skidmorc,
61-35, in December.
"We were very unhappy not playing on our own court," said Coach
Barbara Palm. "We were scheduled
to play at home but unfortunately,
because of a mistake, we couldn't get
the facilities."
The Women's team was asked to
go t o Siena because their scheduled
court was to be occupied by intramurals.
"We realize thai Siena wasin close
proximity, but is is the principle thai
counts," continued Palm. "We have
a facility problem because of enrollment and priorities, but we think
that once in awhile we should be
considered a priority."
Brian Barker and Gordy Charles go up fortthe Jump varaua Post.
Despite the abrupt change in
plans, the players were informed at 3
p.m. of their changed location for a
7:30 p.m. game, and the team left
Siena's court with a 16 point lead at
Center Mary Ann Crotty led the
way with 10 points. Albany was considered the home team.
"We played a different opponent
this time than with Skidmorc," said
Palm. "Siena has lost some height
and speed since last year, but if we
continue to play a balanced game, I
really think we're going to gel and be
a good team."
Basically Freshmen
This year's team, basically a
freshman squad, consists of seven
freshmen, one sophomore, two
juniors, and one senior. With only
four returnees on the team, it will
lake time lor the squad to gain experience, according to Palm.
"We must rely on speed and
quickness because of our lack of
height," Palm said. "We have no

Albany's starling line-up consisted of Mary Ann Crotty-cenler,
Kathy Hnrig-lorward, Mary Ellen
Holey-forward, Nancy Hartlc-guard,
and Tracy Sugihars-guard. High
scorers were Crotty with 16 points,
Sugihara and Ilarig with 14 points
and Sue Winthrop with 12 points.
The speed of Sugihara and precise
shooting of Crotty and Winthrop
helped bring Albany to its first victory of the season.
"Although our endurance wasn't
too good, I'm optimistic for the
season ahead," said Palm. "I just
wonder if the men's varsity team
would have been asked to leavelheir

Needless to say, the players were

Fields asked the committee to
keep three principles in mind as they
weigh the enormous amount of data
in this short time period: "First the
preservation and nurturing of those
programs which are essential and
central to a university; second, the
preservation of quality; and third the
preservation and nurturing of those
programs that uniquely address our
immediate environment—the State
Capital District of New York."
At the conclusion of this remarks,
Fields faced questioning by some of
the faculty members.
Professor Theodore P. Wright of
the Political Science department
stated that the departments of many
members of last year's Select Committee on Priorities suffered the
least. In light of this, he asked how
the findings of this new committee
could possibly be viewed without a
high degree of cynicism.
Fields restated his faith in the
competence of the force's members,
telling Wright that they were drawn
from a wide cross section of universily advisory committees.
Peter Cocks, formerly of the Allen
Center a victim of the last round of
budget cuts -asked if Fields sees any
contradictions in the principles the
committee was being asked to keep
in mind. He wanted t o know if it was

to please the legislators with its
