Wrestlers Suffer Worst Season

recent wrestling match. Wrestlers are aullering through worst season.
"This has been a most difficult
year for wrestling at Albany State,"
said acting varsity wrestling coach
Doug Porter. "But looking at the
dual meet record (0-17-0) is not an
accurate reflection of the team's effort and steady development."
Indeed, lady luck has turned away
from a team which has sent several
wrestlers to the NCAA Tournament

without a solid core of veterans.

Nursing Program Feared Ailing
CHICAGO (AP) A Kentucky medical research group reports that oral
contraceptives may cause tumors of the liver. Doctors fromthe Universiiy of
Louisville School of Medicine wrote in the Feb. 16 issue of the Journal of the
American Medical Association^
\3yo\sng women developed liver tumors
after taking birth control pills. Nine of the tumors were benign, four
malignant. The patients were young, nonalcoholic, generally healthy and free
of liver disease, said surgeon E. Truman Mays, M.D. The exact role of
contraceptive pills in liver tumors is unproved, he said, "but a possible link
between these pills and hepatic liver tumor seems increasingly likely."

the current theory: there are cracks
in the water-proofing layer. According to this theory, water soaks into
the ceiling insulation, bypassing the
watertight baffles and travels along
to the nearest expansionjoint, escaping down onto the head of the
nearest passerby.
According to Kopf and Joel True
of Campus Planning, opening the
entire floor surface around campus
to locate all leaking cracks is impractical. Therefore the water will be
removed from the insulation layer
via drains installed at the lowest and
deepest points of water collection.
However, actual construction
work is only possible, "when the

The official construction period is
from April to November.
Meanwhile, the remedy process

bill is being introduced in the
legislature which will require a
bachelor's degree for a license as a
professional nurse. By 1985,
. programs such as the one offered
here will be in stronger demand.
Organizations such as the New
York State Nurses Association are
alarmed at the possibility of a nursing shutdown at SUNYA. They
point to the high quality of the
program and strategic location of
the school.
Barbara Hanley, who is the
legislative director for the association, said: "SUNYA has a fine, highquality program. To remove a B S
program from this area would be
critically serious."
Mrs. Lussier, a supervisor with the
Schenectady Visiting Nurses
Association said that one SUNYA
graduate is now employed as a nurse
by her group: "1 am very upset about
the possible closing. There are so few
places now where nurses can take
continuing education courses in the
tri-city area."
Some nursing students are
worried that the nursing program
may be facing an immediate shutdown.
Phillip Sirotkin, Vice President
for Academic Affairs, said worried
parents have contacted him about
"For a student in any program
that is terminated there will be an appropriate time for them to complete
their degree."
According to Barbara Pieta,
supervisor of nursing education at
the State Education Department,
the university does have the legal
right to discontinue any program,
due to lack of funds. But, says Pieta,
the university does have "a moral
obligation to at least phase out the
program, or help get the students
placed in another program in
another school." She says that any
student feeling his or her rights were
violated can individually bring lawsuits against the university for
breach of contract.
NOMI NATIONS for the position of Editor-in-Chief of the Albany Student
Press will be accepted from February 13 to February 27. Nominees must be fulltime undergraduates at SUNYA. The Editor-in-Chief is empowered to
represent the Albany Student Press, and is responsible for the direction,
production, content and policy of the Albany Student Press. Utters of
nomination should be submitted to the Managing Editor in Campus
Center 329. Elections will be held March 8.
Ever since list semester, the
Albany Women's Caucus has been
fighting • losing battle to have the
administration reconsider its appointment of Kay Norman as Affirmative Action Officer at SUN YA.
Affirmative Action is the Federal
program which provides for, among
other things, fair and open hiring
According to Caucus member
Frandne Frank, Norman was appointed "without following the
accepted Affirmative Action
procedures." Frank is SUNYA's Coordinator of Curriculum and InterDisciplinary Programming for

Though she has been performing
the functions of Affirmative Action
Officer since the post was vacated
last March, Norman was not officially named to it until October 2,
and.it was December before President Emmett B. Fields signed the appointment. Between October and
December the Women's Caucus
claims that it petitioned Fields to
reconsider the method of appointment, but without success.
The Women's Caucus noted that,
in order to implement the Affirmative Action guidelines for making
j o b s available to women and
minorities, policy of publicizing
openings and employing search
committees for the selection of can-
didates is necessary. Particularly in
this case, they feel that the selection
process should not have been contained totally within the upper
echelons of the Administration.
Joan Schulz—a member of the
SUNYA faculty and the Women's
Caucus Steering Committee—and
Frank both stressed that the Caucus'
objection to the appointment was
based on this procedural issue rather
than any reservations regarding
Norman's personal merits. Fears
were expressed that a precedent may
have been set for promoting favored
candidates of the Administration
without participation by the parties
that would be affected.
Vice President for Management
and Planning John Hartley, who
made the appointment, feels that the.
Women's Caucus was wrong to get
upset over the lack of a representative search committee.

under supervision. There is good
reason for such extreme security
measures, according to Adams. "To
my knowledge, since I've been working here, nothing has been stolen.
But four or five years ago, a lot of
material was taken from special
collections, in addition to other
departments. Fortunately, most of
the books were recovered, among
which was found a rare book belonging to Russell Sage College, valued
at more than $10,000."
All the material in the Special
Collections and Rare Books are
either purchased by the library
bibliographers, or donated to the
library. Special Collections has a
category entitled "Manuscripts",
which are kept locked in the vault.
These manuscripts, according to
Munzer, have a time hold on them,
and cannot be opened until the death
of the donator and his family. Many

Like most campus communities,
SUNYA has a high rate of bicycle thefts.
Ten-speeds are particularly vulnerable. If
you own a bike, prepare to make bike
security an automatic habit Here's a
checklist for protecting your bicycle.
l)jVever leave your bike unlocked.
Make sure your bike lock and chain are of
heavy steel, case-hardened if possible.
Expect any ten-speed left unlocked and
unattended to be stolen. A NYPIRG
report states that chains arc superior to
cablet, and recommends Master model
number 1516 for use in low security
situations. President model 66-Cforuse
in moderate security situations, and
Master models 83, 94 or America! Lock
Co. chain for high security situations.
Copies of this report are available in the
NYPIRG Office, CC 333, 457-2446.
2) Bring your bike inside at night. Even
locked bikes are vulnerable if left on the
street at night.
3)Write down the serial number of
your bike, tbe make, the model, and a
physical description. You might want to
leave one copy of this information with
your parents, to make sure it's available if
your bike is lost or stolen.
4)Regjster your bike with the campus
police. Registered bikes are much more
easily recovered. Call 457-7616 for
further information.
5) Engrave your name, or your social
security number in both a readily identifiable place as well as some inconspicuous place on your bike. Simpleto-use engraving tools may be borrowed
from Campus Security or tbe Albany

Driving habits are one of the main fact o n anccting fuel economy. Here are
some tips that win help you obtain optimum fuel economy for your car as well
as save on the wear and tear of its cornSlowdown. A light foot is one of the
best aatnrances of good mileagr Dont
stretch the speed limits.
Maintain an even speed, especially on
thruways, for best mileage.
Be sure parking brake is fully released.
Don't ride the brake or clutch pedal or
pump the accelerator.
Avoid short trips, especially in cold
Keep track of car trips and gasoline, a*
Plan driving routes to avoid traffic
lights, stop signs and local bottlenecks.
Anticipate traffic lights in order to
avoid hurrying to a light only to have to
stop. Not only will this conserve gas, but
will save wear and tear on the brakes and
the transmission.
If you have to wait for more than 30
seconds, turn off the engine
The "tip" of allowing your car to warm
up for several minutes before driving it is
falacicus. Your engine needs less than
one minute to allow for lubrication. The
best way to warm up your car is to drive it
slowly for the first five minutes or so.
Avoid fast starts and coast to stops to
save gas and wear and tear on your car.
Organize your trips and try to make
only one trip to do your errands instead
of two or three.
Getridof any junk that might be in the
trunk of your car. The more weight your
car is carrying, the fewer miles per gallon
you get.
Tips on Handing your Car
Keep your foot off the clutch when
driving When you halt for a stop sign or
traffic light, shift into neutral until it is
time to drive forward again. This
prevents unnecessary wear on your car
' Downshifting is important in driving
because if done correctly, will save you
much wear on the car's major mechanical
components, such as brakes and
transmission. It will keep your car in
balance on a curve.
To downshift depress the clutch pedal.
Shift to neutral. As soon as you're in
neutral, tap the accelerator forcefully—a
means of getting your drive shaft and
transmission gears spinning at the same
RPM as other routing engine parts,
which means the gears will mesh smoothly. Shift the gear lever down into the next
lower gear. Accelerate gradually. With
practice you'll develop a rythma
In an emergency situation you must
brake to stop. Downshifting does no
good in a panic stop. The brake does it
and you must develop a "feel" for that
brake pedal. Just before your wheels
lock, that brake will feel "mushy" or
suddenly "very light" although you are
bearing down hard. This is called "brake
fading" This is your signal to ease up
slightly to allow for better control of your
car, and for better braking
At a fast speed pump your brakes. Use
steady, increasing periods of pressure
because if you come down hard on your
brakes you could lose your steering ability, and you could throw a brake shoe.

I Nursing Nursing
SUN YA's fiscal crisis ia a serious one. Budget cuts must be made—but the nursing
budget cut?
requesting a
program is not the place to make them.
In the spring of '75, former S U N Y A Presidential Louis T. Benezet's Select
Committee on Academic Program Priorities made the following recommendation on
the nursing program: "Agree with school that they should have a M.S. [Master of
Science], but first assess carefully. Lack of medical programs and facilities here raises
questions. Form a committee [of oursiders] and if M.S. is not in order, school should
be phased out. If it is, then add faculty, explore cooperation (esp. Albany Med. Center)
and add space." {ASP, Summer, 1975)
Now, as SUNYA President Emmett B, Fields' Presidential t a s k Force on Priorities
prepares its report on where cuts should be made, many of the faculty members and
students in the School of Nursing fear that the program is in grave danger, Their fears
stem largely from the school's lack of a graduate program. The meetings of a feasibility
committee set up to assess the need for a graduate nursing program in Albany were
recently indefinitely postponed. This could be a sign that SUNYA's fiscal woes have
put a damper on the practicality of adding a graduate program at this time.
We can readily sympathize with the SUNYA administration. To ask them to add a
nursing masters to that school, while other programs are being severely slashed, is
asking for too much. As it stands now, the nursing program is very costly, hosting a
lower student-teacher ratio than most other programs at SUNYA.
However, the School of Nursing is a most valuable segment of our university.
According to Assistant Dean of Nursing Shirley Kane, all of SUNYA's nursing
program graduates found employment as professional nurses last year. Few other
programs at SUNYA can even dream of making such a claim.
The job market for professional nurses is excellent—and it will probably get better.
Presently, the New York State Nurses Association is pushingfor legislation which will
mandate that no professional nurses be educated in schools offering less than a
Bachelors degree. The legislation, which could be passed duringthis legislative session,
would become effective in 1985. This means that the professional nurse's license which
can now be obtained through two years of schooling, will require four.
The implications are obvious. The job market for students graduating with a BS in
nursing will flourish, as the job market for students graduating with an Associates
degree will most probably diminish. Consequently, the state will need more four year
nursing programs.
According to the nursing association's president, Louise Pan, the rationale for the
legislation rests with the ever-increasing amount of knowledge that nurses must have to
function on the professional level. They need to be competent in social work, in
modern medical technology, and be able to work independently in the community

I cannot believe what the disco
scene is doing to some jazz
musicians. Jazz and soul are similar
styles and most jazz musicians have
few problems playing soul. Many
soul albums have jazz musicians
supplying the rhythm; yet some
jazzmen have trouble in this idiom.
Esther Philips is a product of old
style jazz-blues music. She received a
recording contract with Kudu and
released three albums. Although
they were well done, none of them
sold well. Kudu records wasn't overjoyed at this and decided to fashion
her music to attract the disco crowd.
They made Joe Beck her arranger

masterpiece. When one or the other
is chosen, the result is problematical.
When a director carefully decides to

lazy or has decided to experiment.
These two elements are at work in
Francois Truffaui's film Two
English Girls, shown last Friday and
Saturday evening at the PAC. The
setting moves primarily between fin
du sicclc Paris and the two English
girls' home in Wales.
The story revolves around the
triangle created by the love between
Anne (Kild Markham), her litter
Muriel (Stacey Tendeter), and
Claude (Jean-Pierre Leaud), a
young French writer and art critic.
Claude fint expresses hit love for
Muriel, a fragile girl full of
mysterious thoughts. The two are
separated for a period of one year, in
which time he makes love to Anne.
i We follow Claude's progress
through his loves and career, his
renunciation of his life for Muriel,
and Anne's sexual awakening.
Muriel is finally told of her sister's
secret love, writes to Claude of her
own impurity (she was, alas, an
Onanist and Sapphist in her youth),
and is, in the end, penetrated (I) by
Claude. Anne dies and we are left
alone to ponder the strange story we

Coach Ron White. "Steve
Bookbinder set a personal best in the

with two seasonal bests, in the 500

Brian Rosencranz set a personal best

Other personal bests cited by
Coach White included
Rosenberg, who had two personal
bests in the one and three meter diving events, with point totals of 194.5
and 186.5, respectively, along with
Jeff Cohen for his personal best in
his leg of the opening 400 yard

energy producing corporations
are preparing to lock our

system by the year 2000. The
New York Public Interest Group
(NYPIRG) believes this is a
serious mistake. There are many
serious problems with nuclear
power; here are a few:
Lethal waste: An average
Nuclear power plant produces
about 200,000 grams of
Plutonium 239 every year. One
gram of Plutonium 239 could
cause several million cases of
Lung cancer. It remains deadly
for hundreds of thousands of
years, and cannot be safely
stored, disposes of, or neutralized.

Insurance: A nuclear power
plant accident could cause up to
$22.4 Billion in property damage
and billions more in personal injury claims. Presently nuclear
power plants are insured for only
$560 million. No insurance company in the world will insure for
$22.4 Billion.
These are just a few of the
problems involved. In site of this,
everyone in government or the
industry concerned with nuclear
power ignore these dangers as
significant- until last week.
When one of Vermont's nuclear
plants closed down on February
5th, three high ranking nuclear
engineers for General Electric
who helped design nearly 100
plants, resigned. All three said
that they were no longer convinced of the technical safety of
nuclear power and would actively campaign against its use for

prevent such a disaster has never
been tested. A model was tested
six times. Each time it failed.

ly focusing their attention on
programs such as Nursing,
whose fate was left uncertain by
the Select Committee Report
and Benez.et's decisions. The
Fields Task Force is expected to
make recommendations onthese
programs sometime next week.
In the past four weeks the Task
Force has met for an estimated
I OS hours, not counting subcommittee meetings. The 16
member group, chosen mostly
from the ranks of University
Senate Councils and the former
Select Committee, is charged
with reviewing all aspects of the
university including administralion, maintenance and operation. Fields has instructed the
Task Force to base its decisions
on three "strategic princippes";
"First, the preservation and nurluring 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 ol
New York."
These principles and that ol
meeting long term enrollment
trends were stated at a December
University Senate meeting. At
that time, Fields announced a
tentative allocation of resources
for 1976-77. Although his plan
has been ruined by the Executive
Budget cuts. Fields is still determined to place increased
emphasis on programs involving
public policy impact. Such
programs are Public Affairs,
Social Welfare, Education and
Criminal Justice.
Whether the President can
begin to guide the university in
this direction in the next fiscal
year depends on the Legislature
which has yet to vote on the
SUNY appropriation. Last year,
the Legislature made cuts far
greater than were mandated in
last year's Executive Budget.
With its current concern lor local
assistance and no new taxes in an
election year, the Legislature
may further cut the Slate University.
The University at Albany's
future remains undecided. Even
in January President Fields
noted that this latest round of
cuts would serve as a "lest of our
stamina as a university." Further
cuts by the Legislature could

School Of Business Limits
Students With New Policy
by C.S. Santino
A special committee appointed by
SUNYA's School of Business Dean
William Holstein is presently
processing over 280 applications to
determine who will majorin business
and who will not.
"We are allowing for about 260
positions," says Holstein.
Last November, students interested in majoring in business or
accounting were notified that the
School of Business could no longer
accomodate the ever-growing ranks
of business majors. Students were
asked to file an undergraduate admission application for the first time
in the school's history.
"Wc must limit our enrollment to
the level of a year ago," says Holstein. "The School of Business can't
keep growing to absorb all the
students who want to be business
Holstein's controversial new
policy is "purely a result of the
statistics," he says. In 1973, about
ten percent of the freshman class expressed an interest in majoring in
business. In the Fall of 1974, that
figure grew to 12 percent, at which
time the nationwide swing towards
business education had become an
obvious trend across the nation.
Holstein discussed the problem
with SUNYA administrators and
implemented a number of changesto
deal with the incrcasingenrollment.
Two new faculty members were
added, "which was all we could afford" says Holstein. The size of lecture courses was enlarged to take on
li maximum of students.
llolslein says that the situation
became "absolutely unworkable"
when, in 1975, more than 17 percent
of the freshman class indicated a
preference lor business.
"This is a significant change," says
Holstein, "nol a fad or a craze. It is
unreasonable to expect a university
to be so flexible as to accomodate all
these students. Students presently in
the program have a right to a quality
education, and my faculty has its
rights, also. By accepting everyone,
the quality will quickly deteriorate."
Holstein also cited the fact that his
faculty's teaching load is 50 percent
greater than in most departments,
and that course section sizes are at a
minimum of 40 students each. The
overall number of business majors
has doubled since l969toaboul 1200
By Jan. 31, 1976, the official cutoff date, the School of Business had
received about 280 applications,
primarily from sophomores. The
minimum requirements for acceptance arc completion of at least 56
credits, 15 of which must be in six
core courses listed on the form.
"Having completed at least this
much," says Holstein, "students will
be accepted on the basis of
cumulative average."
The student who is accepted by
Holstein's Committee on Undergraduate Admissions will be
allowed to major in business or ac-
by Larry Buchwalter
A SUNY-wide task force on student activity fees has recommended
revisions of the present guidelines
for collection and dispersion of these
funds. The suggestions of the task
force are aimed at clarifying the
amount of control administrations
should have over student tax money.
One proposed amendment could
make it easier for student corporations like SASU and NYP1RO
to get funding. In short, it clarifies
the right of student organizations to
support or contribute lo various
charitable groups, and allows for the
transfer of funds to student cor-
counting if he or she wishes to do so.
A rejection means that a student cannot major in business or accounting,
and cannot take any upper level
business courses. These courses will
be restricted to majors.
"A rejection," says one student,
"means that I've wasted two
semesters taking core business
courses. After I've paid tuition,
haven't I the right to major in the
department of my choice?"
Many prospective business
students are disturbed about the new
policy, especially those whose grades
may put them on the borderline.
Holstein reports that students visit
him daily to demand acceptance. A
number of students have threatened
to file suit against the University if
they are rejected.
Some applicants feel that if the
trend in education is towards
business, then the University should
allocate morcfundsinthat direction.
Holstein, however, is not quick to
ask for more money.
"Biing a university center, we
must save smaller programs," says
Holstein, "The Administration can't
just cut them to enlarge my school.
I'm trying to work with the Administration, not as an adversary."
Students who applied to the
School of Business will be notified of
their status by the end of next week.
The task force recommended,
however, that fees not be used to
fund such things as an "extracampus political committee, party
or candidate"
The task force was formed in Oct.
1974 by SUNY Chancellor Ernest
Boyer. It consisted of four students
and eleven administrators from
SUNY Central and State campuses.
In a letter, Boyer stated that the
purposes of the task force should be
lo "examine the appropriateness of
the current method of fundingthose
programs and activities supported
by student aetivitv fees." Boyer
further stated that the task force
should "assess and recommend alternative courses the university
could/should take in this regard."
Accordingto Russ Gugino, Assistant to the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and a member of the
task force, "the task force is only an
advisory committee. The recommendations it makes arc subject to the
review and approval by the Board of
This review will occur in the next
two months, says SASU President
Bob Kirkpatrick, who was also a
member of the task force.
Comments on the student cor-
porations amendment range from
fears of its being a device that could
be used to funnel money for political
purposes, to praise for itsexpanding
student control over the use of student funds.
Thomas Craine, SUNY Buffalo
Assistant to the President, thinks
that it "immodestly provides the
ability to 'launder' monies in nearly
unlimited ways."
According to Gugino, SA wants
t he "uses of t he funds t o be expanded
to anything the student wants."
Kirkpatrick states that, "There
