Part of that effort, accordingtoan advisory report, includes the crca- President Emmett B.

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 hurt by that change. "He's interested in bringing SUNYA national prominence," says English professor Jeffrey Berman, "but it's almost an inevitability that the undergraduate education will suffer . . . not in theory, but in practice." Sacrifice Justifcd Other faculty members sec the Ph.D. program as a necessity that justifies any sacrifice that may be made. "It's not a simple trade-off. . .What Fields is doing has to be done." says faculty member Donald Stauffer. "The feeling is that we're building a mammoth Ph.D. program and the undergraduate will go lo hell. That isn't going to happen." The plan that caused this polarisation in the department was drawn up last November by three outside cvaluators brought in by Fields. As the final report indicates, their job was lo "make recommendations with respect to 'the restatement of i Uawtky Dean of Humanities Ruth Schmidt says that cuts in other programs are "inevitable" if the English department obtains desired scholars. the graduate program'." These 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 Ph.D. progiam. . .In the present 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. continued on page three , « $ >•>-,.— , . < Fiscal Woes Prompt SUNY Hikes by Andrea Herzberg New York State's financial crisis willtakeitslollonSUNYintheform ol tuition and rent hikes for all stateoperated campuses and the climinationof 88 positions here at SUNYA, if Governor Hugh 1..

Kissinger Reports Progress Made on Talks 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 houses are related by virtue of their religious vows, their attorney says. The nuns, each facing fines of up to $20,000,, are to appear in PAGE TWO 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 were unable to useadrivewaydueto the extra autos, according to 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 town building inspector, penalties for violation of the ordinances call for fines of up to $100 per day. MOSCOW (AP) Secretary of State Henry A.

ALBANY STUDENT PRESS JANUARY 23, 1976 by Cynthia HacinU 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 SUNY 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 world. "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 this." 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 130. 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." Goldstein said that "without the ef- JANUARY 23, 1976 JIl'IOI-j. .... individual's Faculty Research Fellowship.

Policy decisions that are made are withinthe guidelines of the Board of Trustees. The Health, Education and Welfare auditors who handle our grants want one patent waiver that covers all of the SUNY sponsors." <dtor.si,* jiiilboat) /ni- UUJJ an noji, ,hi.ro English Doctoral Axed continued from page one "The morale in the English department is horrendous," says Rics.

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 the highest possible quality in terms of teaching and scholarship, there's no problem."

Although the FM target date is several months from now, Goldstein said, "We're starting to think in terms of FM now. There will be changes in programming accordingly." Goldstein said there will be "more educational and public affairs programming as this semester goes on." WSUA's News Director Paul Rosenthal said that, "With FM, our staff is expected to increase considerably." Rosenthal predicts that FM will attract "more interested people in all facets of radio."

"When Sirotkin addressed the English department the last week before Christmas," said Berman, "it was his assumption that there were always better people out therethat wecanbringintoimprove the English program." "I believe in the notion of quality, but I also think his idea is callous," continued Berman, "There are good people in this department losing their jobs because of his assumption that you can always get somebody better." Fields' plan for the department will "destroy a long tradition of leaching." says Berman, who claims that "most of the faculty realize that teaching is relatively unimportant . . . Publication is the only criterion for academic survival." Fields' main concern, however, remains the reinstatement of the Ph.D. program. "Our moral case is clear," says Fields, who claims, "1 know what a first-rate department ought to be and 1 know howto create one." According to Berman, Fields will have a long way to go: "It's a very divided department without effective leadership . . . a department that's suffering from an identity crisis." Recent changes in the English department have caused that identity crisis. The remaining question is whether or not Fields' master plan will serve to resolve or aggravate it. At dozens of colleges and universities, students are getting academic credit for learning how to find a job. And schools not yet tuned in to the latest innovation of careerguidance are paying consultants thousands ol dollars to show them what to do. "PAGE THREE ERA Failure Causes Many WomentoWrestle With Rights in NOW Split kf C^IWt QoMifCPS) ——The (UtUng of the Eqwli Rights Amendment (ERA)—just four states short of final ratification has already prompted many opponents of women's rights to applaud the death of women's liberation movement,. But now/with a split in the ranks of the largest and most powerful feminist organization in America— —the National Organization of Women (NOW)—- the ERA may be only the first of many casualties in the most recent war between women and women. The sides were drawn at a recent conference in Philadelphia where a NO Wraction calling itself "The Majority Caucus" won two-thirds of the seats on NOWs national board with the slogan "Out of the mainstream into the revolution." In one of its campaign newsletters, the Majority Caucus explained that their platform "commits us not just to get women into the mainstream of American life, but to change the very nature of that mainstream itself." The newsletter went on to saythat "to achieve equality in a society that is fundamentally corrupt, cornpassionless, dehumanizing and destructive is to stop short of realizing our own full potential for social change. . ." Few times in NOWs 10-year history have such radical ideas been proposed to its 60,000 members. NOW has always sought support from women "whoenjoy being wives and mothers" and whose most radical ideas include child care, equal access to credit, betterjobsand improved income. These are the women who will be alienated by NOWs new leadership, according to the: NOW conference delegates who lost their bids for the national board. Many of the defeated delegates subsequently formed their own faction, "Womensurge," to decide how to put NOW back on its old track. "Vou don't make the great strides on child care and jobs and credit and things by alienating the people you want that from," one Womensurge member said. The Womensurge group is expecting that the new priorities approved at the Philadelphia conferencelesbian rights and alliance with Third World and working women "will frighten most women." Indeed some of NOW president and' Majority Caucus member Karen DeCrow's ideas have come under sharp attack from several local chapters. DeCrow advocates third term abortions— abortions when the fetus could be viable—and NOW endorsements of political candidates, both stands widely opposed by the NOW rank and file. But DeCrow responded to Womensurge criticism by repeating her committment to the women NOW has previously neglected. "Some how, if the feminist movement pays attention to anyone but white, middle-class straight women, we are off course," she complained. The dissension in the ranks has proven to be more than the usual political infighting associated with such diverse organizations as NOW. One member of NOWs board of directors labelled it "a crisis of tremendous proportions. . .There's a great deal of bad will in the organization," she said.

"We made the cuts where the least people rode," relates Olson. According to him, "The basic schedule, doesn't change." Problem areas in the schedule will be alleviated, if possible, by sending any available extra buses. As long as there's a man and there's a problem, a bus goes out." Working with a shortage of drivers as well as legal restrictions limiting their hours is difficult, says Olsen. He claims that these supplemental runs arc not always possible and ^therefore will not be leflectetFrfn the schedule. "Even though we're thin," says 'itmfi They're supposed to call the wind Marlah.

The pre-med student had been working all night on an experiment that would mean one fourth of his grade, a grade that could take his O PA out of the competition for medical school. The experiment botched again, there was only one thing to do: lower the grading curve. He picked up a vial of dear solution and began adding it at random to other students' experiments. With applications to medical schools skyrocketing, sabotage and cheating in pre-med lab courses have become standard fare at some colleges. "Pre-med students have less than a 50-50 chance of getting into medical school," commented an official of the American Association of Medical Colleges. "It's no secret that some of the students feel that cheating is necessary to protect their futures." Because of anincreaseincheating, particularly in the science courses required of pre-med students, Johns Hopkins University in Maryland recently replaced its old honor code with a tougher new policy that contains measures for enforcing academic honesty. Cheating techniques, accordingto Johns Hopkins Dean Sigmund R. Suskind, ran the gamut from cribbing and copying during examinations to such extremes as students deliberately altering other students' lab experiments to gain a competitive edge in class standings. "What I'm concerned about is the flagrant examples," said Suskind. "Large groups working together, major cribbing, alteration of experiments, theft of exams, major cooperative efforts." ?"~Largc scale cheating is not unique" to Johns Hopkins.

"Students who were not pre-med, but who were going to become chemists weren't bothered with," said one former pre-med student who was dismayed by the competition. "It was all done by pre-meds with the attitude of 'You might be the one who keeps me out of medical school.'" Aside from altered experiments, another popular cheating tactic at Stanford is stealing library books' needed for the identification of chemical compounds. This prevents "correct analysis of unknowns and causes a lot of hassles," reported a senior pre-med student. At Ohio State University, several pre-med students have reported stolen lab notebooks, or notebooks "borrowed" just before grading and returned with lab reports torn out. No one expects that the thieves' will be caught. "Most cheating isn't even reported," said an Ohio State biology professor. "Students aren't willing to turn other students in." Part of the problem in stopping pre-med cheating is the penalty for the crime—failure in the course. "To fail a kid in a course, especially in a pre-professional school is like a sentence for life because it means they will never make it into law or 1 Telethon Gets An Early Start Ruthless Pre-Meds Cheat in Labs by Mare Leve Auditions have already started for this years Telethon, which is 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.

The Telethon staff is trying to get dorms, campus groups and frats to put on their own acts. medical school," said an Ohio State student. "Profs know that and some even look the other way." Although most school officials direct their attention to the almost hopeless cause of weeding out offenders, others believecheatingindicates underlying problems in the criteria medical schools usetoscreen applicants. "An obsession with grade point 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 York. 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 business." The solution to cheating, says Gelhorn, begins with a reexamination of medical education. "We shouldn't be looking for someone who does well in organic chemistry—something the practicing physician rarely uses—but someone with a concern for taking care of people."

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 security cards, driver's licenses and even passports in that other person's name. y&* The task force recommendations include linking birth certificates with death records by computer, so that impostors can no longer obtain the birth certificate of a person who is d e c e a s e d . In a d d i t i o n , it 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 identities. BETSY'S FLAG With America's 200th birthday less than six months away, the Flag Research Center in Winchester,, Massachusetts, is out with the dis- ZODIAC 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 colors. 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. TASER ZAPPED The Canadian Government has outlawed that Buck Rogers-like electrical stun gun known as "thetaser." 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 with a quick pulse of electricity. Canada has decided to completely ban tfce taser beginning next month because the device is increasingly being used by robbers and other criminals. Taser systems, incorporated, of 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. HIDE AND SEEK The Soviet Academy of Sciences has outlined a 15-year plan tosearch all of the stars within 100 light years of the Earth in an effort to contact other advanced civilizations in our galaxy. According to the American publication Astronomy Magazine, the Soviets plan to use radio telescopes to scan hundreds of nearby stars in an effort to pick up and decipher intelligent radio signals. 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 scan theskies forinfra-red radiation. TV DIET They believe that infra-red radiation How would you like a T.

Throne of Blood 7:15 LCI 9:45 $.50 with ID $1.00 without 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. PAGE TEN ALBANY STUDENT PRESS STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK AT ALBANY • • • JANUARY 23, 1976 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 ASPects. 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 comment. 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.

That's Leslie West. The heap, (iross, sweaty, tasteless. Furiously inert. I.es hasn't budged an inch in eons. The Leslie West Hand used to be West. Bruce and l.aing used to be Mountain. I.es 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 body-snatcher. 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.

I'm a student at The State University of New York at Albany and I am presently on a Guadamalian freightor headed for Singapore. 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, WAIT A MINUTE!

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 school." "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 joking. "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?

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. NEED A FRIEND? CALL MIDDLE EARTH 457-5300 24 HOURS A DAY! by Keith Graham 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 split. 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. levy 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. Vibes 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 something. 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? mmtmmmmmmmmmm— STUDENT I mw WAIVERS 'There will be a Protect Your Environment Club meeting to...

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 hero, depending on how you look at it).

How "About An Alternative Shabbat worship experience... by Alan Fricdmann Universal'! tremendous 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 lemon. 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.

MAHMAMNI Basketball and the Super Bowl; Pretentiousness Ciata 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 be? 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 eyesight. Tune in next week. K¥K:S 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.„. SSWWS^WSSSSSSSrSSS: 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.

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 ever sec it as necessary to envision our nation 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 slogan seems to be — "you can't trust the Russians." What is needed, though, is not a black eye. 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 weapon of using our superior food supplies as «source of threat,2. The old weapon - c o m - ! Ann Clou (Itareg s a p things ronn't be easing •X by David Troegcr WMWaiASSftSSSSSWrWAWS paring mil levels of nuclear armaments as a source ol threat, and ! The secret and most pervasive weapon 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 superpowers. Friendship is a two-way street, though. If sou do all the talking and giving, you never know what the other party thinks of you. This seems to be one reason why detente has come under such lire in recent months. It has been said that what we perceive as conciliation on our part, the Soviets perceive as weakness, which they exploit witness their activities in Portugal and Angola. • 'I he place to really stand firm with the Russians is no! on a battlefield, but rather ata negotiation's table. We may not be the policemen of the world anymore hut we are the only nation in the world (besides China) which is in the same league as the Soviet Union. If we don't stand up lo them and level with 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 send them. Let's see how long they can get along without that and other support we give them. In a coexistent world the Soviets need us just as much us we need them.

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 Portugal.

The meeting will be immediately followed by a workshop on reporting and writing techniques. Meeting will be In HU112. 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 Rockefeller operation und prevent the whole urea from falling into Soviet domain ... an unlikely alliance but vital il Kissinger can't get the U.S. Congrcssto pull Rockefeller's chestnuts out of the fire.

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 Weisman was there to convert the rebound. Steve Schantz led all scorers with II points, Biggs had nine for the Chosen Five.

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. -in While the varsity has seen a 5—0 record disappear, the junior varsity men's basketball team has not been adversely affected by injuries or illnesses, or, fortunately, has not suffered from.any serious ones.

Sabres Slash Schedule To Keep Braves Happy - And In Buffalo BUFFALO A P - T h e Buffalo Sabres hockey club said Thursday it is willing to talk with officials of the Buffalo Braves basketball team about a dispute that has led to a possible move of the Braves. "Our city is major league and we are vitally interested in keeping the Braves i n Buffalo." t he Sabres said i n a statement issued after its executives returned from a National Hockey League meeting in Philadelphia. The Sabres said they arewillingto meet with Braves officials and city representatives to arrive at practical arrangements which arc in the best interest of the teams and the city. • Owner Paul Snyder of the Braves has complained that he is unable to get satisfactory dates for the Braves' home games in the National Basketball Association at city-owned rtiMjA rtauoD Hsu ,1101 Memorial Auditorium. The Braves usually play on Tuesday and Friday nights, but Snyder said he would prefer a Wednesday and Saturday schedule. 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 investors to keep the Braves in Buffalo. He said he is willing to sign a long term lease if satisfactory scheduling can be worked out. This, he said, would bind any new owners to Buffalo. Mayor Stanley Makowski of Buffalo said he is trying to arrange a meeting of the two pro teams. qoz'.qrnaa ynuytr Dave Lanahan: Mister Attitude by Michael Smith choice.

So Lanahan cameto Albany State as anonymous as an All-County Dart-Catcher. But despite his mediocre background, Lanahan hustled his way onto Bob Lewis' JV team and worked hard enough to become the first forward off the bench at season's end. But, alas, you i guessed it, he never started a game. Lanahan's most recent accomplishment was making Sauers' varsity team as a sophomore. And this season he returns as one of five letlermen even though he scored a meager 31 points in 18 games last year. "Obviously my biggest attribute is my attitude," Lanahan said.

Fields translate Carey's 1976-77 Executive Budget into the austere reality that S U N Y A faces in the immediate future. Fields, speaking at a special open session of the University Senate, announced the possibility that he will be forced to cut more than 88 positions already indicated by Carey. Albany's Brian Barker looks to reject George Johnson's lay-up attempt versus C.W. Post In December. Danes were winners, 70-69. Oneonta is the Conference team to beat. Guard Kevin Croutier (the brains and ball-handler of the team according to Sauers) and Steve B l a c k m a i l (an all-Conference player) are the keys to the Red Dragons. Six-loot, five-inch center Steve Wolcott should keep Cavanaugh well occuppicd, and guards John Minicucci and Tom Christian round out the Conference leaders. Women Hoopsters Crush Siena by Christine Bellini 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 halftime. 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 weak teams on our schedule; each game we're out to play against good competition." Albany finds its stiff est competition against I'olsdam and llarlwick colleges. 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 home court in the same situation. Needless to say, the players were very disappointed and upset." The team's next game will be home on Wednesday, January 28 at 7:00 p.m. againstCastletonCollege. AquamenBow To RPI by Brian Orol The Albany Aquamcn were crushed in the jaws of RPI Wednesday night by 73-40. The Great Danes managed to win only four of the thirteen events of the meet. The brightest lining in Albany's dark cloud was David Rubin, who captured half of the Dane's victories, and set a school record. Rubin's first race of the Inight was the 1000 yard Freestyle. His time was 10:44.4, leavi n g the old record of 10:47. in his wake. After resting just two events, Jtubin came back to win the 200 yard! Individual Medley with a time o f 2:15.5. Rubin raced again during the meet, this time in the 500 yard Freestyle. His lime was identical to RPI's Hal Ehrhardt, 5:14.7, but the judge declared Ehrhardt the winner. "Thetriple, (the three races David Rubin swam), is very hard to do, whether you win or not," said Albany's coach Ron White. "David did very well, winning two events, setting a school record, and just barely losing the third event." Other Danes victories included Artie Rowenbcrg's win in the second One Meter Diving contest. His point totul was 180.2, edging RPI's Courtney by 3.55. The last Dane victory was brought to Albany by Mitch Rubin, completing the' 200 yeard Butterfly in 2:10.1. RPI swept all seven points in the opening event, the 400 yard Medley Relay, and never relinquished the lead. The Danes challenged only continued on page seventeen JANUARY 27, 1978 pw lolomon Albany swimmers dove Into the fray but came out empty, losing to RPI, 70-48, Wednesday. Fields explained that the numbers recommended by the Governor's budget may prove t o be misleading. The budget s u g g e s t e d that S U N Y A ax 27 faculty, 28 faculty support, and 33 other positions in order to save an estimated $1,343,200 per year in salaries. But, according to Fields, the average salary figures that Governor Carey's people used were higher than what they are in reality. Fields concluded that, "there is a clear possibility that we must eliminate more positions than are shown [in the budget]." "At the same time that we are scal- ing down the university's activity, "One question that may be in your the cost for students is going up," ex- minds—it usually is when you hear plained Fields. "The Board of bad news," said Fields, "is: did we get Trustees has not voted that increase ,it worse than other people?'

Fields went on to explain that the Governor's mandate for revenue increases is what will force tuition and r o o m t o g o u p . He said that thescincreases will save the taxpayers an estimated $50 million. He is mindful that there is "heavy resistance to additional taxation," and that "given that position in whiehthclegislalurefindsitself,. . . there will be little interest in restoring the cuts." Fields voiced the fervent hope t hat t he legislators will not impose further cuts. Compared to Albany's proposed loss of 88 positions, S U N Y Buffalo was asked to drop 133. Stony Brook will lose 78 positions, Binghamton 86. Another topic Fields discussed at length was his newly-drafted Task Force on Priorities and Resources. This committee will serve as the decision-making structure whose report, due March I, 1976, will determine where personnel cuts are to be made. Fields has charged the committee President Fields gave grim fiscal news to those who attended the special University Senate meeting yesterday afternoon. t o "assess all academic and support programs of the university; recommend priority rankings for program claims on resources; and consult and advise the president on the development of the university's operating UB President Cuts Off Student Group Funds The administration also interfered allow the administration to control with the school's student pharmacy, them.

Asidefrom moves aimed at specific groups, an overall review of the funding of student services has been ordered. The Co-op is a student funded record store, located in the basement of the student union. This came as a result of a complaint from a local record dealer in Buffalo, that the Coop was "unfair competition." The records there are sold tax-free, and the outside dealers felt that this was not fair, as the store is located on land paid for by state taxpayers. The student uprising was so great when the store closed that Ketter wasforccd lo reverse his decision, and negotiate a compromise. The Co-op is now open, but was required to cut its business rale. budget for 1975-76." 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 possible lor people who were trying to please the legislators with its choice of priorities could possibly be sensitive to the other areas of academic importance. Fields said il is highly probable thai a program would be rated highly on one scale and low on another and added that, "We will do the best with the little time we've got."
