Library Restores Sunday Hours
by Steve Bracket!
The SUNYA library will resume
its regular Sunday evening hours,
beginning Nov. 14 according to
Library Director James Schmidt.
Schmidt said that from this day
on, the library will be open Sundays
from 12 noon until 12 midnight. It is
presently open from noon to 9 p.m.
How long these hours will remain in
effect is unknown according to
Schmidt.
The reduction of the library hours
this year was the result of Governor
Hugh Carey's November 1975 hiring

agencies. This left the SUNYA
library with 33 vacancies, Schmidt
said, forcing a decrease in service
hours.
Consequently, Schmidt said that
the library opened this semester for
83.5 hours per week, as compared t o
last year's 103.5 hours, a reduction of
20 hours.
However, according to Schmidt,
with the restoration of eight hours
on Sept. 13, and the addition of the
Sunday evening hours, the library's
total hours will be 94.5, nine hours
shy of last year's total.
Schmidt said that these last nine
hours will be restored Dec. 10, adding to the Friday evening hours,
Saturday's morning und evening
hours, and an additional hour Sunday.
The library has received five

will be able to restore the hours. We
believe that we can absorb the work
that those people were doing, at least
for the remainder of the semester."
According to Schmidt, the reason
for deluy in the restorution of hours
was lack of personnel. Steps were

NEW YORK (AP) Thirty federal
meat inspectors and a supervisor
have been indicted on charges of illegally receiving money and other
items of value as shakedown payoffs
worth over $500,000 from more than
50 meat processing firms. Officials
said the payoffs were bribes lo avoid
"harassment" tactics and work interruptions that could have cost a
plant "thousands of dollars a day."
Robert Fiske, U.S. attorney in
Manhattan, said the racket has not

The indictments were announced
Tuesday by Fiske and U.S. Atty.

WASHINGTON (AP) The Internal Revenue Service will soon be making

University administrators will
meet this week in an effort to determine a policy change in regard to the
posting of itudent grades with their
social security numbers.
. "The key test is whether the student wants his or her grades posted,"
explained Dean for Student Affairs
Neil Brown.
U nder the protection of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy
Act of 1974 (more commonly called
the Buckley Amendment), students
are supposed to give a written consent to the institution involved
before the disclosure of "personally
identifiable information" is per-
of the SUNY system, charged that
"very little progress has been made in
hiring minorities and women on the
professional level at SUNY" since it
first instituted its equal employment
policy in 1971. The bipartisan committee was created in 1969 by the
U.S. Civil Rights Commission and
immediately accused SUNY of "dc
facto discrimination" patterns.
Thursday's report was based on
the results of years of monitoring by
the committee, one of SI such units
around the country that make
recommendations concerning civil
rights activities in I heir various communities.
Franklin Williams, former vice
chairman of the New York City
Hoard of Higher Education, said
thai although there had been some
positive efforts on the purl of SUNY
officials lo initiate affirmative action
programs within the system, the
situation on a whole showed "no
significant improvement" and that
"very little progress has been made in
hiring minorities and women on the
professional level at SUNY." j
'StalisticsuHted by the group in
support ol Us claim showed that In
1970 blacks held 2.5 per cent %S
faculty positions, Hispanics 0.3 per
cent and women 20.4 per cent.
Figures lor the 1975-1976 academic
year revealed that blacks make up
3,1 per cent of Ihe position,
Hispanics one per cent and women
22.9 per cent.
In other words, according to the
study, during the five-year period,
minority faculty increased by slightly more than one per cent while
female representation went up by
only 2.5 per cent.
Williams accused SUNY of being
guilty of "widespread footd r a g g i n g , " calling ihe data
"disgraceful." He also asserted that
the small gains were made on the
lower-paying end of I he faculty spectrum and blamed much of the
problem on "an inadequate search
system."

Three Graduate Students
Attempt OSA Formation
Tuition Hike Numbs Students
(CPS) Moawy if f l o r a s from itodant wallctt a* they return to their
campuMt facint tuition and other
fee hikes. Some tchoob in fact, have
already announced additional hikes
planned for next year, while students
this year are Mill shelling out more
money than ever. But ttudent opposition is scattered across the nation. Soaring tuition is met with
moods ranging from submission to
frustration.
Tuition ROM
Tuition rote in New Jersey an
average of $169 per student over last'
year. Undergraduate students of the
SUNY are paying up to $200
more
while
costs
for
graduates went up an extra
$400. The University of New
Hampshire upped tuition by $100
for residents and $390 for nonresidents. Students at the University
of Massachusetts will see a total in-
crease of $225 spread out over two
and a half years. And so it goes for
students across the country.
Student opposition of various tuition and fee hikes has fallen off at the
start of this academic year. A contrast to last spring, which saw two
state capitols stormed, a chancellor
pelted witheggt and buildings taken
over in protest of hikes. Many student groups are now attempting to
act as legal collective bargaining
agents. Other groups are lobbying
legislators and registering people to
vote against those who would raise
their fees.
Although a tuition increase has
gone through in New Jersey, the
New Jersey Student Association is
taking credit for keeping the hike to
a minimum. The president of NJSA,
Frank Robinson, felt that actions
taken last spring, such as direct
legislative lobbying, massive letter
campaign* and demonstrations,
kept the increase $100 less than
originally proposed. Effors in other
state schools have not seemed as
successful.
The end to spiraling education
costs does not seem in sight.
Students returning to school are
learning of increases planned for
next year, and student leaders find
their hands tied by apathy. Kansas
residents face a $30 increase next
fall, and non-residents $150. At Iowa
State University, where a lOpercent
tuition increase is proposed for next
year, the student president saw the
lack of student concern as "a sign of
the times."
by Florl* Shertier
An attempt to form a graduate
student association at SUNYAis be: ing made by three students working
in conjunction with the Student Activities Office.
According to coordinators John
Campbell, Paul Kellerhouse and
Spencer Adams, an organization of
this type is necessary to facilitate the
special needs of SUNYA graduate
students. There is no campuswide graduate association for grad
students to turn to," said
Kellerhouse.
Kellerhouse and Campbell believe
that the graduate population of
SUNYA, which comprises approximately one-third of the entire
student population, is not adequately represented in Student Association or in the University Auxiliary Services. They pointed out that
there is no place that helps graduate
students deal with their unique
employment, housing, and financial
problems.
Campbell stressed that there arc
very few ways for graduate students
to meet each other. "Most grad
students don't know very many people who are not in their particular

graduate program."
One of the main functions of a
graduate student association on the
SUNYA campus would be to plan
social events for graduate students.
Campbell and Kellerhouse stressed that a graduate association would
not compete with the various
departmental grad programs on
campus. It would serve to help the
various groups unite. "After all,"
said Kellerhouse, "we have common
needs, and there is definitely strength
in numbers."
Active Members
Although Adams, Campbell and
Kellerhouse are initiating the formation of a graduate student association, they stated that after they help
to lay the foundation of this association, they would not seek leadership
positions in the organization. They
do hope to he active members in the
association.
Any graduate student who wishes
to voice his opinions and interests
concerning the formation of a
graduate student association is urged to attend an organizational

night at the Rathskeller Pub.
Cosman won four places on a
weekend trip tothe Xanadu Princess
Hotel in Freeport. He expects to
take his girlfriend, Susan Rosencrantz, his friend David Mallach and
Mallach's girlfriend Susie Wong.
Both Cosman and Mallach are from
State Quad's Whitman Hall.
Cosman's entry was one of more
than four hundred. While some
students made several entries,
Cosman says he submitted only one.
Mallach had entered two.
The four students will choose* a
weekend in December as their vacation.
The contest was sponsored by Student Association and the Albany

Noxell Corp., for example, hypes
its " N o x e m a Medicated Skin
Cream" by saying"No soap or cream
does so much t o make y o u look so
beautiful." Not so, according t o the
FTC. Noxema is acutally only "as

"Moon

as effective but not more so than its

The F T C questioned BristolMeyers on its claim that its
medicated soap called "Fostex" was
"recommended by more physicians
than any other acne product." The
company replied that its early ad
campaign was aimed at dermatologists so its sales were
necessarily based on d o c t o r

be carried inside existing U.S]
b o m b e r i . T h e missiles, each
equipped with nuclear warheads,
would be launched by airborne
bombers several thousand miles
away from their intended target*.
What makes them dangerous, the
center says, is the fact that they can
fly close to the ground and change
course—making them nearly i m possible to defend against.
The Pentagon is currently
promoting the cruise missile, arguing that an extensive system of
cruises would not be particularly
costly. However, the center warns
that a U.S. effort to build cruise missiles will almost surely stimulate a
similar Soviet effort, eventually
necessitating an American defense
system against the Soviet cruise. The
cost of a U.S. defense system against
the cruise missile, the center says,
would be billions of dollars.
THE HUMAN TORCH
A 15-year-old Tampa, Florida,
youth was badly burned last week
when he burst into flames while
attempting to imitate the human
torch antics of the rock group Kiss.
Charles Allen reported from his
hospital bed that he was enlulled in
flumes alter he filled his mouth with
lighter fluid and then exhaled
through a torch to make it look as ii
he was breathing tire. Allen said the
slum worked twice, but backfired
the third time when the wind blew
the llamcs back at him.
Says Allen: "I saw the flames come
back at me. I knew they were going
to get me, bul there was nothing I
could do."
STARRY NOTION
The U.S. Space Agency is proposing.to o r b i t a giant iwo-mile-widc
alenna above Ihe far side of the
moon in an effort to detect radio
signals Iromolhcrintciligcnt beings.
The New York Times reports that
the moon would be employed as a
kind of shield to block Ihe Earth's
radio emissions from the delicate
receiver. According to'N ASA's projections, the cost of the project
would total about S9 billion, and
could be operational in the I990's.
The project calls for a giant, springout two-milc-wide umbrella that
would unfurl in space above Ihe far
side oft he moon and thai would aim
outwards at selected nearby stars.
The Times says that the antenna
would give earthlings the ability to
listen ill on the planets of more than
2 million siars, any one of which
might be supporting a civilization fur
more developed than ours on the
linrth.
FREE AT LAST?
II skyjacker D.H. Cooper can hold
mil lor just three more weeks, he will
be a free man as far as ihe F.B.I, is
concerned.
I his November 24th be the fifth
anniversary, of the date on which a
man in his early 40's, wcaringshades
and using the name " D . B . Cooper,"
commandeered a commercial jet and
then parachuted out somewhere
over Washington, Oregon, or
California with $200,000 in ransom
money. Ihe statute of limitation in
the unsolved case expires on the
24th.
The F.B.I., knowing that Cooper
may soon be a tree man, has stepped
up its last-minute investigation of
the case; the bureau has released a
complete list oft he serial numbers of
the 10,000 missing 20-dollar bills,
and is offering!) $5,000 reward to the
first person who turns one of the bills
in.

refused coverage
To the Editor:
If you read the ASP, you should have been
told about a campus meeting held on Oct.
29th, which drew 150-200 people. Lecture
Center 23 was filled with people whe-had come
to hear Peter Camejo, U.S. Presidential candidate of the Socialist Workers Party. There
was a good deal of laughter at the meeting.
Camejo is an excellent speaker, and gets a
good response from the audience as he pokes
fun at the irrationalities of a system which puts
private profits over human needs. There was
also frequent clapping as he explained where
socialists stand on issues such as abortion
rights, busing for desegregation, unemployment and the war budget. People at the
meeting responded by contributing over $130
to the campaign, and buying quite a bit of
socialist literature.
A Sense of Togetherness
by Dan Gaines
There is a sense of togetherness on the
podium these days, as people gather together
outside buildings which are beingsearched for
bombs, or burnt by fire.
There is a sense of security amongthe faculty, since they can go about their business
assured that less than ten per cent of the
tenured professors are in danger of losing their
jobs.
There is a sense of continuity on the University Senate,where only the student third ofthe
representation is unsure whether or not it will
be allowed to sit on the body next year.
This university is great! So many people and
campus institutions are generous, considerate
and busy doing the right things at the right
times for the right friends. It's beautiful. Some
examples:
The university knows how hard some people work. For class presidents, the load is especially large. So, they've set up a system
whereby class presidents can embezzle a little
on the side. In the past, such systems
have worked nicely for a Campus
Center administrator and an accountant
at UAS (then FSA). These are clear in-
dications of this school's generous spirit.
The good will doesn't stop there. The campus is happy with its president, because he
doesn't say things people underst
that is, he doesn't say anything to
hurt anyone. Try this quote: "Our value lies
in detached, accurate assessment reaching
back into classical notions of the body
politic." Isn't that a fair explanation of public
policy?
Some professors want to protect our liberal
education! They want to encourage students
(by forcing then)) to take courses
t h a t the s t u d e n t s dislike for the
s t u d e n t s ' own g o o d !
Language
professors arc hard at work explaining the
value of language in a liberal education. Same
pattern with other departments. But it's
heartening to know that their arguments have
nothing to do with the fact that low student
enrollments may mean cuts in those
departments.
Everyone inthc university is participatingin
the revival of spirit. Ira Devoe of the plant
department tried to knock some sense into
irresponsible students by forcing them to get
into their beds by 2:30 a.m. In these times of
financial pressure, it'shearteningtoknowthat
a few rape-prone students had to put up a real
fight before the university would waste tens of
dollars in electricity.
The University of Houston hassharcd parts
of their mission with us. Many sections ofthe
two mission studies arc identical. How's that
for partnership? Cooperation is the key for
success in the mysterious world of education
together.
Student Association's Central Council has
been endingtheir weekly meetings twice as hurt
as they did last year. And not only that, hut the
SA President has fewer bills to sign, freeing
him for more relevant things.
Most importantly, the campus has a sense
of purpose. The various governance bodies
feci they have a say in the university's future.
The school president stays on the sidelines
while the campus community determines the
future. In a more general sense, the state of
New York itself has permitted the university to
do as it pleases, and the entire State University
system is secure with the knowledge that New
York's financial woes will not in any way
affect them.
Now fur ihe bail news!
What did the ASPsay about this important
event? Nothing . . . not a word. Organizers
of the meeting (members of the Young
Socialist Alliance, a recognized student
group) were told after the meeting that no
story about the meeting would be printed in
the ASP. It was considered "too late" it
would be printed in an issue after the election.
The "Catch-22" in this reasoning is that we
had been refused coverage before the meeting
also. While the ASP finds plenty of time and
space for Democratic and Republican
politicians—before and after the elections—it
has no space for Socialist candidates. We in
the Young Socialist Alliance protest this onesided coverage. Candidates with whom the
ASP disagrees have a right to be heard
especially when a sizable and enthusiastic
audience comes to a campus meeting to hear
them. We call upon the ASP to have better
balanced coverage in the future.
Camejo was not speaking on issuestluit disappear after the election. Along with the rest
of his party, he will he lighting lor abortion
rights and the E.R.A., desegregation, against
cutbacks in education, against FBI and CIA
repression, and a great many other struggles.
To say that it is "too late" to report una
speaker dealing with such topics because the
election is over, makes little sense, unless><>u
are trying to block out the viewpoint nt the
speaker.

contest confusion
To the Editor:
As interested students and participants in
- the^^SiSS/^'coiitest for the trip to the
Bahamas, we have felt some dissatisfaction
with the contest rules (or lack ol the same).
Aware that the contest is to stimulate student
patronage of the advertisers, we have lotind
that students arc taking advantage ol these
businesses by requesting unreasonable
amounts of entry blanks stamped. We are concerned with advertiser and commumt) altitudes toward SUNYA students. II some
students take advantage of a contest such as
this, it is a reflection on the student community as a whole. We suggest that the rules

The new exhibit at the SUNYA art gallery features
the work of a teacher from Williams college,
and two SUNYA Masters candidates, one quits
talented, and the other, not so talented.
Of the two masters candidates, the work of Peter
Taylor is certainly the finer. His linear, grid-like
abstractions are visually exciting. His use of bright
colors or pastel shades within forms that seem to recede
or burst forward, is an attempt to harmonize gestural
with geometric abstraction. Certainly the late work of
Paul Klee and Hans Hoffman influenced Mr. Taylor.
There is too the tactile qualities of a Jasper Johns,
without John's calligraphy.
"Reflections", a work in water-color on paper is quits
fine. The simple vertical striations seem to move in and
out of the picture plane. His "Billboard Landscape"
with a rougher and more painterly application of paint
to t he canvas is strongly recessional. The vertical lines of
color in horizontal bands show a fine demonstration of
Taylor's control of color. If any objection can be voiced,
it is that this style of work is rathcrlimiting. The number
of expressive variables on Taylors theme is closed.
The work of Owen Rhodesjaccs stronger objections.

His work, a kind of painterly photo-realism, is
unoriginal, and unaesthetic. Perhaps he objects to the
seeming detachment to be found in photo-real works, if
so, he has found no solution.
His work suffers from his devotion to tromp I'oeil
objects, as seen in his Pcto-like fastening of objects to
neutral colored wall surfaces. His command of color is
strong however, as seen in his "Wallpiece".
The best work in the show is that of Marilyn
Giersbach. Her use ol collage-elements on large, roughly
stretched canvasses is striking. She employs cloth,
stenciling, fur, design elements, and both tight and
expressionist painting. Her "Painting with Bottles", is a
fine harmonizing ol De Kooning brushwork with hard
edge diagonals, and suspended painted bottles. This
ready made aspect creates real space in the canvas, and
is visually arresting.
Her finest work though is "Romanesque List". Here
Ms. Ciicrsbach has tried to express the world of
architect urc by t he j uxtaposing of squares (denoting the
real elements of building) with stenciled words from the
language of architecture (basilica, transept, spandrel,
etc.) The result, though a bit awkward, is a real feeling
for an interior architecture. Indeed most of her works

'representations of the natural or man made world. Thus
her art is as much about the experience of creating art
(the artists confrontation with the canvas) as about the
subjects she seems to be representing.

U.S.-Foreign University Differences Examined
By LOIS GOLDSTEIN
Prom time to time, we become
aware ol thcthoughts of people from
other nations in reference to events
or policies taking form here. These
ideas are usually expressed to us by
way of short summaries extracted
from foreign newspapers. Here at
S U N Y A , we have a very
knowledgeable, ableit small group of
people who cither retain citizenship
or have extensive backgrounds in
Note: It must be ascertained that the
faculty members questioned have
had only limited experience with the
educational systems of both this nation and their homeland. The majority of comments made are
therefore generalizations, and must
only be valued as such.
another country. Being a place of
higher learning, it seems only logical
to address ourselves to the topic of
education systems in our interviews
with faculty representatives from
France, India and Great Britain.
It seems that the most salient
characteristic of American higher
education is its informality. In one of
her observations, a Frenchwoman
mentioned her shock at seeing a
professor sitting on a desk with his
lets folded beneath him, directing
vulgarisms toward his students. As
regards the students, this same
woman noticed one of her students
remarking aloud in the class that he
was hungry.
This lack of decorum is even more
pronounced to people from Great
Britain, where the universities are

more academically elite. This is due
to the small number of universities
there, as well as the entire
"sociology" behind it. Only a very
small proportion of the population
enters college, meaning also that
most graduates are easily welcomed
into the job market. Since it is so
common then to find oneself in a
lecture situation, where asking
questions is discouraged, the
students are assigned to tutors.
These people, almost comparable in
service to our advisors, provide the
link between student and instructor.
In India, the formality
question turns into one
of detachment. The system
there includes large lecture courses,
at the end of which (two years later)
one is required to take an examination to determine if he may continue.
Because of this great amount of time
before evaluations, the majority of
students tend to concentrate most of
their efforts at the very end of the
two year cycle. Therefore, despite
the fact that asking questions is permitted, most students are seldom
prepared enough to do so. Then too,
the professors are not the examination proctors, and so they are not all
that important to the student.
Many contrasting opinions concerning financing of higher education, admittance of students to insititutions of higher learning,
facilities and the students themselves
exist. However, representatives from
England, France, and India all agree
that there is a great deal more
freedom in America in choosing
courses. Whether or not this system
of many electives is good is
debatable. As a British faculty
member stated, the United States'
method tends to produce more wellrounded citizens, whereas the British
system sets out to (and succeeds in)
producing specialists.
As to financing, an interesting
contrast exists. In India, where
colleges are run for profit, it would
probably be easiest for youths of
wealthier families to attend schools.
The government does, however,
provide scholarships for those
students who show great promise.
Indian society does influence this,
though, by means of the caste
system. Besides that, family ties are
so strong that a great many students
prefer to commute to school daily,
rather than living away from home.
In England, the local county
governments pay for students to attend universities. This creates many
disparities due to the varying degree
' of wealth in each county. There
might also be a certain amount of
money donated to students by the
federal government in the form of
centralized grants.
France, on the other hand, may
boast a more socialized system of
higher education. The federal
governmnet contributes a great deal
of money toward those entering
colleges, depending upon both
merit, and the financial status of the
student's family.
Admissions to British schools are
handled departmentally. This means
that people are accepted into their
major field, and start specializing
immediately. Changing fields is
more difficult as a result, although
hot impossible by any means.
ALBANY STUDENT PRESS
Because of the Indian policy that
anyone who can afford to go to
college may do so, admissions are
not really a very crucial point.
Students in France must pass an
examination known as the "Bac." In
essence, this test may very well determine a person's future. The Bac is
known to be extremely difficult,
although in recent years there have
been some calls for reforms. It is said
.that the higher grades being obtained on this exam are indicative of
a need to increase the difficulty of Ihe
Bac.
Although all of the schools discussed are co-educational (with the
exception of the few all-female
schools in India), there do arise some
differences in attitudes. One of the
contrasts drawn between French
students and American students is
that those in the U.S. tend to lack
responsibility. American students
have been said to be spoiled in that
all is organized for them and made
easy. This is most pronounced here
by the fact that there aren't any
strong "student unions" here
because of lack of need. The other
shocking contrast involves the
statistics of drop-outs. The French
schools sustain a much greater
number of students leaving before
graduation than their American
counterparts,
Finally, the British system involves only a few exams. The main
difference between the two nations'
tests, besides frequency, involves
form. It is very rare to see the objective multiple-choice type of test in
England. Essays are much mors
prevalent.

double anxiety which the clockmaker experiences, his fear for his son's well beging,
and his realization that he does not really
know his own son, which form the central
issues in Bertrand Tavernier's The
Clockmaker.
As can be surmised by the plot summary,
the film has all the possibilities of a Hitchcock
thriller. Had the film been made by the master,
one can imagine the clockmaker becoming involved in all manner of police intrigue and the
film building to a suspenseful climax. Tavernier however has opted to steer clear of

A paunchy, middle-aged clockmaker, living
a quiet, unassuming life in Paris, is one day
confronted with the fact that his twenty-yearold son has disappeared and is beingsought by
the police, accused of murder. With the son is
a young woman the clockmaker has never
met. The murdered man was a factory
policeman who had blackmailed and sexually
assaulted the young woman.
For the clockmaker, the most disturbing
clement of this situation is that he has always
considered himself more than a father to his
son, to be a friend and close confidant. It is this

* With the

dusiis that same year, the most intense examination ol the aesthetic, as well as psychological and sociological, possibilities of
film had begun.
Instrumental in ihe creation of this intense
investigation was the establishment of the
world's Inst film academy, the V.U.I.K„
which opened in Moscow in 1920. In spile of a
critical shortage ol film slock and equipment,
a few youngenthusiastic filmmakers and a fervent heliel in cinema as a powerlul instrument
ol revolution. As the years passed, however,
revolution changed from polities to art; the
most gilted directors were more interested in
cinematic form than Marx and farming.
Although Ihe best ol Soviet films preach
political justice, their real content lay in their
formal excellence.
h u m the age ol fifteen. Lev Kulcshov was
deeply interested in ail: he si tidied architecture and sculpture al Ihe Moscow School of
I'ainting before becoming set-designer for
Yevgeni Duller in 1916. The following year
Kulcshov directed his first feature, and more
important, he published the first theoretical
statements on film, defining (two years before
Caligari), ihe key contribution of the designer
in the expressive design of cinema. During the
revolution he served onthe Eastern Front taking newsrccl footage. Returning to Moscow in
1920, Kulcshov was rapidly recruited into the
teaching stall of Ihc V.U.I.K. and given his
own 'Workshop.'
It was in the Kulcshov Workshop that the
true beginnings of the Soviet film lire found.
Kulcshov and his students experimented
endlessely with the possibilities of editing,
which Kulcshov, from the start, felt was (he
stronghold of the medium. Shots of Ivan
Mo/hukhin's expressionless face were intercut
wilh various shots (a bowl of soup, a woman in
a coffin, and a child with a toy hear) to crealc
Ihe famous 'Kulcshov effect*, at which
audiences marveled.
Kulcshov also demonstrated in his
workshop the concept of 'synthetic
chronology' by editing together shots made at
jilfcrcnl places and times (for instance -•street

that cinema could be a powerfully artistic
medium, and certainly he and his students had
learned much from the repeated showings of
Intolerance (they re-edited the film until the
print fell apart). Hul unlike Griffith, Kulcshov
was consciously aware of the structural potentialities of editing theoretically, and artistically, he never fell short of his promise.
The intellectualism
that Kulcshov
demanded of himself and his students was the
crucial difference between Ihe Soviet directors
and the American ones.
Kulcshov wrote, "Every art has a basic
material and a particular method of composing that material. In Ihc art of film, the
basic material is represented byseparalcshots,
and the latter by the arrangement of the shots
in a form by which the apprehension of the
world is enriched or revealed."
Although Kuleshov's own films arc hardly
known oulside the Soviet Union(with thecxccplion of lly ihe Law, 1926), his theories were
revived in the work of his pupil Vsevclod I.

confusion that beiet the dock-maker.
In essence. I found this to be a most unci nem.tic film which it saved primarily by the
performance of Philiipe Noiret ' as the
beleagured clockmaker.
The main problem with the Him is that in
many ways, it is more theatrical than
cinematic. As the story of the clockmaker and
his son unfolds, the viewer is confronted with
scene alter scene of people discussing what has
already transpired. As the clockmaker moves
from the police to the son's former nurse to
some friends of the young woman, the
development of Ihe plot becomes clear, but in
a way that could have been presented on the
stage. Tavernier does not use the possibilities
of his medium, and has decided instead to use
a static, immobile camera to fell the greater
part ol his story. Of necessity, this places the
burden of mukinga good film on the shoulders
of Ihe actors, and in this respect the film is a
success.
As the clockmaker. Philippe Noiret gives a
superlative performance. He is a most unusual
movie hero: middle aged and going grey, witha
beer belly and a large ski-slope nose. He looked as though he was plucked from the street
and chosen for the role simply because he
looks so average. Like his appearance.
Noirel's performance is restrained, Though
confused and terrified, the clockmaker
realizes there is little he can do, and so tries to
resume his normal way oflile while constantly
keeping an ear lot he radio in hope ol'inlorination. Noiret has created a character who is
tormented wilh doubts about himself and his
son, and who is willing lo support his son
despite these doubts. It is a troubling and insightful performance, and surely the highlight
of the film.
As if inspired by Noiret, Tavernier is also at
his best when the film concentrates on the intimate details of the clockmakcr's life. In one

as at waaders throat* **» *t*umm. •jsl s i i i
his shop on the floor below... As tht caaasra
picks up small details and nuances thai would
normally go unnoticed, the tense of intimacy
with the character is remarkable. This scams
to prove that Tavernier does know how to use
bus camera to tell the story, and not having to
rely on words.
Later in the film, there is a scene in which
the clockmaker is in hit shop listening to the
radio for news of his son. Hs it surrounded by
silent time pieces; hit workbench cluttered
with the inner workings of clocks. It is a
delicate, beautiful depiction of a man caught
between his secure, familiar world and the
chaotic fear which had come so forcefully into
his life.
Unfortunately, moments such as these are'
few. and sandwiched as they are between long
sequences of dialog, can only raise The
Clockmaker to the Status of above average.
Before viewing The Clockmaker, I talked
wilh Hen Winer, a representative of Joseph
Green Pictures, the American distributor of
The Clockmaker and other foreign films. He
wus most enthusiastic about the growing
audience in America for European films, and
said that they arc, in general; getting better
because of successful runs around the world
and bigger production budgets. He said the
even smaller urban areas such as Albany are
now able to support theaters showing principally arl films, and that the film afficionado
will no longer have to travel to New York to
sec Ihc latest batch of imports. Mr. Winer will

77ie numbness grew into a slow
paralysis, dividing his body.
By JERRY MIKORENDA
i j He often wished he could spare himself
from laying in the darkness before falling
asleep. It would be so much easier to turn
the light off and remember nothing from
the night before. But always he would lie
on his side staring at the wall through his
eye lids, when a hot numbness would start
to grow down his arm, causing ripples of
color to explode in his mind. Or at least in
what he conceived to be his mind; the
narrow dark area in front of his eyes that
reached out in to the world like a convex

across the room. They'll write down

He felt naked in front of them, as a few
girls by the side wall began to giggle.
Things went shaky, he wished Joan were

till the day was over, and he could go
home and tell her of it, sink himself into

the door he spotted a boy with a green

It would all come together in his mind
and filter down onto Leni's figure across
the room. He stood once more in front of
the curtains, and threw them completely
open. All at once a brilliant white glare hit
his eyes, as if his ears were hearing a hundred symphonies from the front row. For
a few moments he could not sec, and had
to put his arms up to guard to blinding
neon light from his eyes. The light bounced off the flat of his stomach and formed a
ghostly reflection of the lower half of a
man's body. The shite scar on t he left side

It was cold outside, and the wind kept

familiar to him, for they had known his

measured life in huge segments of four
years, always rushing to its next phase, at
if there would always be a next phase. It
was the long seconds before the end of
class, that snapped tension into their
young muscles, which he now used to
measure his life.
Doctors claimed the optimism of at
least two years, and maybe as long as six,
but he knew only a fool would count his
chances past several months. All at once
as though facing the thought brought
some clarity to his life, he saw himself
arriving at forty-three, as a pentemento of
images, that he could never string
together in the proper connection.
A car made a U-turn in the street below
cutting erratic shadows on the walls; at it
pulled away he felt himself mysteriously
drawn to these stretching fingertips of
passing light, drawn toward an unknown
destiny. Drawn back to his past, and to
his future, but leaving him in the darkness
of his present, the lights disappeared
down the road. He wondered if Joan was
sleeping now, if he made the right decision in leaving her. The last he heard from
her was when in the hospital he received a
religious card from her (put out by the
Methodist Church of Indiana) he read it
with hopes of finding some words of
reconciliation among the eggshell white

He's talked to her only twice in these

different if fhey hid had children, he was
sure of it, but the doubts they had when
they were young seem to have been born
out. The decisions both made through life
were always the correct and the right

ment. Four flattened pegs radiated from a
staff like protrusion. Four strings, each of
varying thicknesses were wound about
t he pegs and stretched across the entire affair. The shape of the main body was unusual indeed. Arcing gracefully on top
like a fat bottleneck, then curving inward
sharply, it nearly described a full circle
before repeating the original curve in
reverse. The pattern formed by the
device's perimeter was symmetrical. A
lew laps on it confirmed that it was
hollow.
Sifting further, he discovered a long
stick across which stretched many fine
threads.
A memory, rising sleepily from an ageslong hibernation, swirled about his head
and finally began to coalesce.
Looking about the room, he espied an
old, frail chair rotting in the corner. He
sat himscll upon the chair, which promptly filled the room with a cacophony of
angry objections. Heari ng nothing but the
nervous silence within himself, he lifted
the instrument to his chin.
Slowly, hs drew the bow across the ancient strings. A single, timid note crept
out from within the violin. The note
quivered and trembled, echoed and reechoed about the room. The sound
lingered and departed, only to return
again, bouncing and flitting along the air
currents. It rose and fell with a life of its
own.
The note rose higher and higher,
vibrating and reverberating within the
small enclosure, alternately isolating and
incorporating the man in its envelope.
Voices condensed from out of the grey
monotones and began to revel. 'We are
back', they cried, 'We have returned!'
They sang of companionship and they
melted together.
The note, stronger now, climbed out of
the delicate openings of the violin. Coiling about the man, it permeated his substance and he joined in its forceful oscillations. The images solidified and
became more distinct, They filled the
world with warm, red life—throbbing,
glaring, blatant life, They marched beside
him and they stood before him. They were
silver, and the glided down the note,
slippery and shining.
Once more the bow slid across the
strings, and he remembered. Outside a
child tripped, fell, and began crying.
Hurriedly her mother rushed to her side
and blanketed her with gentle kisses and
soft reassurances. The sharp ding of a
bicycle bell bit the air. A hundred walking, running, skipping, jumping feet
pounded the pavements, merging into a
single, massive rumble.
Faintly, almost imperceptible, another
sound supplemented the symphony of
fellowship. A rhythmic patter, a steady
drip-drip wet the floor. He was crying.
He could no longer hold the instrument
still. Sobs racked his body. His vision
clouded, and he gasped in tearful spasms.
The violin shook, and the note faltered,
wavered, and finally ceased. Flug from
his grasp, the violin spun in the air and
buried itself in a pile of sterile dust. He
leaped at the door, swinging it open with
such ferocity that a hinge was torn from
the wall. The old, crippled door hung
from its one remaining hinge, creaking in
the stale breeze.
The man's heart crashed against his
ribs and fully threatened to smash them.

The sun was just beginning to rise and it
sent rickety tendrils of light probing the
dry, cracked land. Before him sprawled
an empty, dead planet. Choking, arid
sand glowed a sickening red by the
arthritic rays of a sun grown old beyond
reckoning. Bits of worked stone, brick,
and metal which jutted haphazardly out
of the sands served as the sole indicators
that a race called Man had once owned
this world. Now these handiworks were
crumbling into powder, and the tired
wind blew hoarsely and scattered it.

Hasten Down The
Wind
By ERIC OSBORNE
This ii not an impartial review of
Linda Ronstadt's newest album, nor
could it be. I am too strongly of the
opinion that Ronstadt is a naturally
brilliant, if not fully developed,
singer. I am too fond of her previous
albums and performances, though
they are frought with flaws in many
areas. And I am too taken by her image onthe album cover, though 1 like
to think that appearances bear no
relationship to performance (or its
impression thereof).
Linda Ronstadt is now thirty
years old. Until now, she has tried little in the way of diversification or
growth. She has done little in the
way of surrounding herself with
quality musicians or capable
producers. It has been said that until

romantic interest and professional
performance; and I'eter Asher, initially influenced little by Souther
(Heart like a Wheel), then succumbing heavily to his familiar wnysandovcrbcatcn style (Prisoner in Disguise).
They arc musicians like Kenny
Edwards, one of the Stone I'oneys
who had to hang on to Linda and her
success lor nis next meal; and Andrew Ciold, who travels and tours
with Konstadt as her warm up, trying to strike out on his own and not
succeeding.
And they arc recording engineers
like Val (Jaray and Dave Hassinger,
who decided that Linda Ronstadt's
vocal performances were secondary
to her albums, that they were more
appropriately buried under eight
superfluous tracks. A distracting
and unnecessary amount of
reverberation, ridiculous ideas
about equalizing for a "breathy"
sound, forgivable technical errors
(IM'opping and breath blasting, especially on lleuri and Prisoner) and
a lack of clear direction succeeded in
badly muddling a voice that should
have been enhanced and prominent.

"Anyone can succeed in starting
their own business with only a little
capital, and the opportunities for
such are greater now than ever
before," according to led Nicholas,
author, businessman, and self-made
millionaire.
Mr. Nicholas gave two lectures at
SUNYA Tuesday, in honor of
Career Day.
Career Day. an event that took
place in the Campus Center
ballroom, was sponsored by Delta
Sigma I'i.The Placement Office, and
the School of Business in order give
SUNYA students a belter perspective on job offerings.
Mr. Nicholas* afternoon speech,
entitled: "Career Alternatives and
the Free Enterprise System," took
place in the Assembly Room before
a lairlysmall audience, lie geared his
talk toward an audience of students
who were, in his words, "Must likely

He began his lecture hy telling
those present how he managed to
build up a business of 21 corporations with only W 0 to invest.
He said, "At the age of 221 wanted to
go into the candy manufacturing
business, so I borrowed money for a
building, equipment, and raw
materials to slart. I was $96,000 in
debt when I first started, but within
10 years I had 30stores in six stales."
Mr. Nicholas claimed that
everyone who was present had the
ability to do the same thing, and
said, "The opportunities now are
greater than ever before. All you
need to start your own business is a
strong desire, and an interest compatible with the environment, and
with what olhers want and need " He
also said, "Formal education is
helpful for such an undertaking, but
not absolutely necessary. I, myself,
dropped out of college."
He was also strongly advocating
the free enterprise system which we
enjoy in this country, and contrasted
it with that of Socialist and Communist countries, where this type of

other people in the world. It is commonly believed that most
businessmen are crooks, and of
course there are sonic, but of those
I've known, most are honest and
hard-working."
Mr. Nicholas was dressed in a
flashy three-piece suit, and wore a
hall-dollar medallion around his
neck, and rings on almost every
linger. He spoke with ease, despite a
visible tape recorder, as if he was
used to speaking to an audience such
as this one. His appearance made it
seem like he was a man who enjoyed
the Ireedom being offered to him in
this capitalist society, because that is
how he had made II big.
He mentioned that, "Competition
can be good, and failure will not
always hinder one. but can often
help very much." He cited I he example ol his own experience in starting
two unsuccessful corporations, both
of which helped him gain much
knowledge.
He continuously emphasized, in
his lecture, the fact that people in the
U.S. own the tools used for production, while in Communist countries,
the government owns the tools. "Hy

He concluded his speech by saying
that, "We're all lucky to be born in a

and "I hope we'll make good use of

For The Sake Of Justice
After much ado, former Class of '78 President Marc Benecke may
receive no more punishment for a $3,000 theft than a student who is forced to leave school for lack of academic achievement. This is gross inequityThe formula at work is simple. If a student fails to accumulate a required number of credits, he or she is banished from SUNYA. Similarly,
if a student fails to successfully cover-up a $3,000 theft, he or she is also
banned from SUNYA's classrooms.
The inequity here lies in the fact that supposedly equal punishments
are being doled out for obviously unequal crimes—if academic failure
can even be thought of as a crime.
When students are "graduated early" because they lack in the required
number of credits, it's usually because they're either incapable of keeping up with the workload or incapable of caring. Neither of these actions
are criminal. However, the law has a ready-made label for the theft of
$3,000—grand larceny.
One could argue-—but not for long—that Benecke's punishment was
harsher than the one that might be leveled on the failing student. After
all, Benecke was not only suspended from school but ordered to concurrently pay back the $3,000 he stole. The smart crook would have invested the three grand and reaped benefits from it while taking 15
months to pay it off. In this sense, Benecke committed a more serious
crime than the hypothetical academic invalid, and received a lesser
punishment, since part of his retribution included a $3,000 interest-free
loan.
Suspension from school has already proven itself an ineffective
deterrent. A student may be suspended for cheating, yet cheating at
SUNYA is a commonplace occurance. Handing out slaps on the wrist
for more serious offenses can only increase their frequency.
The Committee for Student Conduct secretly tried and sentenced
Benecke. But his story was never revealed to the students, who have been
left with no means by which to judge for themselves his innocence or
guilt. And it is certainly not clear that the punishment fits the crime.
It appears that the Committee for Student Conduct will pursue the
matter no further. That's their prerogative. However, they are not the
victims—the students of the Class of 78 and all other SUNYA students
are.
For the sake of present students, future students, and for the sake of
justice, Benecke should be brought to court for a fair trial, so the whole
story will be told and an equitable settlement reached.

Throughout the endless postelection
anal pes that have been pouring forth from the
media as expected after a presidential election,
one factor has thus far been largely overlooked; the recent election was decided, whether
consciously or not. by one man and one statement.
This man was not one of the candidates, nor
was he even remotely involved with the campaign. He is a judge sitting on the Court of
Appeals, New York's highest court of law. Kor
through this man'sjudicial wisdom, he refused
to agree to Eugene McCarthy's appeal to remain on the New York Stale ballot. After
weeks of argument and counter-argument, the
highest court made the final decision not to
allow the third party candidate's name to
appear, thus ensuring a solidified Democratic
vote on Nov. 2. With McCarthy off the ballot,
the Carter people did not have to worry about
McCarthy drawing theso-called "liberal vote"
away from the Democratic nominee. The
judge's decision turned out to be far more
crucial than any of the debates, press conferences, and or television blitz campaigns
held by both candidates throughout the
summer and autumn months.
The vote in New Yorkstate was much closer
than anyone, including the Kurd people,

how divided New Yorkers were between the

has a light, tasteful approach that's hard to tire of. However, his
albums show that he can really cook on guitar, without losing his

amount when over 5 million votes were cast.
So, we return to the McCarthy issue. With
McCarthy on the ballot, he surely would have
garnered enough votes away from Carter to
give the state to Ford and with it. New York's
41 electoral votes. A quick recount shows that
with New York in Ford's column, he would
have had 279 of these votes, nine more than
the necessary 270. Certainly, before the election, the Carter people were scared that McCarthy might draw voles away from their candidate, but not in their wildest nightmares did
theythink that the court decision would affect
.the outcome of the election. In essence. Ford
put the judge on the New York Slate Court of
Appeals in the position of castingthedeciding
vote. Although New York holds the second
largest bloc of electoral voles. Ford hardly
made a serious attempt at winning here.
During the campaign, each side carefully
summed up their chances of winning the key
electoral states. Ford counted heavily on
California. Michigan. Ohio and lllinoisr.
Pennsylvania and New York were considered
outside chances. But the Ford people figured
that they could concede New York to Carter
and still win the election with the help of the
other big stales.
Ford did indeed concede New York to
Carter, and with it the election. Ford hardly
campaigned inihe slate, knowing full well that
in order to win it he would ha veto do especially well in New s orkCity. His advisors thought
this nearly impossible in light of his position
put in this unusual poaakM, helped by For*
who mu*t bate tboagkt that erieaiaf New
York was inconceivable.
The judge's decision and a devastating
domestic policy rode the Democrats into the
White House. With New York's support, the
President would have sneaked by Ms
challenger and gained an elected term sea office. Throughout the campaign. Carter was
looked upon skeptically as being distrustful.
Ironically, the same factors surrounded Ford
in New York, causing the Court of Appeals'
decision to be, in effect, the final arbitor. New
Yorkers simply did not trust him.

real political climate in the city. Ford ignored
it in the campaign except for a brief
appearance in Brooklyn before a supposedly
tremendous crowd of supporters. But, contrary to the President's vision, Brooklyn has
traditionally been a Democratic stronghold. A
further look at the "tremendous turnout"
showed that the people there were either rounded up by the local Republican committee or
merely interested New Yorkers, there to catch
a glimpse of the man who dared tell them to
"drop dead" a year earlier. Thus this judge was

•M
Danes Home To Close Out Frustrating Season
Must Triumph Against Springfield
To Save String of Winning Seasons
by Craft; M l
The Albany State Great Danes
vanity football team must have a
win Saturday when they play host to
the Springfield Chiefs or they will be
remembered as the first Great Danes
varsity football team ever to sport a
losing record. (The Danes were 2-4
in 1970 as a club).
The two teams enter their season
finale owning identical 4-4 records.
The game means a lot to both
squads. Springfield would like to
repay the Danes for a last year's 4322 beating, in addition to securing a
winning season for first year coach
Howard Vandersea. A victory would
provide the Chiefs with their first
winning season since 1970.
So far this year Springfield has
had trouble on the road. Springfield
does not want a road win this year, as
all its victories have been in the
friendly confines of Benedum Field,
lnterms of comparison, the Chiefs
beat Southern Connecticut, whc
blanked the Danes 10-0, 14-7 while
losing to Cortland State, 17-IS, a
team the Danes beat 25-14.
Albany head coach Bob Ford sees
both >*&!ui as being jjf?uy evenly
matched and feels t he team that wins
will be the one that makes the least
number of mistakes. Mistakes and.
penalties have riddled the team all
year, at times causing 'more,
problems than the other team on the
field.
"It's been a disappointing year,"
said Ford, "for both the players and
the team." "Saturday is the last opportunity for us to become the football team we arc capable of."
Springfield will do everything in
it's power to make the season a disappointment for the Danes.
The Chiefs run a multiple attack
featuring the running of junior
tailback Mike Lasorsa and the
throwing of marksman quarterback
Bob Wcller. Lasorsa was named to
the Division II team of the week two
weeks ago for his 113 yard effort
against Wagner. The darting
tailback has gained 646 yards and
scored four touchdowns this year.
Wcller has added a passing dimension to the Chiefs attack, having
completed 61 percent of his passes
for 681 yards and four touchdowns.
His favorite receiver is tight end
Kevin Monahan, on the receiving
end fourteen times for two
touchdowns. Fullback Mark Banker
takes care of the inside game (of the
Chiefs, lnaddition to running he isa

fine blocker and Welter's favorite
receiver out of the backfleld.
The Danes' job is to contain
Lasorsa, who has the speed to break
one at any time, and stop the short
passes to both Monahan and
Banker.
"It will take a solid group effort,"
said Ford.
Defensively the Chiefs are
aggressive and pursue well. They are
basically a 5-2 team but they give you
a lot of looks, according to Ford.
Outstanding Player
Roy Samuelson, nicknamed "Mr.

Then why is Hobart seeded first in
the ECAC tournament? "It's a

Danes' coach feels Hobart should be
ranked fourth in the tournament,
not first. "At no time over the season
did Hobart or Geneseo rank
anywhere in New York State," explained Schieffelin. "It defies intelligence."
As for the game itself, Schieffelin
is respectful of Binghamlon's talents.
"They're good; a formidable oppo-
nent," he said. "But I think we
should beat them. We'll just have to
wait and see what happens.
"A lot of our kids have had papers
and tests so they aren't goingto he in

S ""clear attack by the Soviet Union, and students reacted with fear
and shuck, and some with strength,
when a skit meant to help illustrate
the day's Gospel reading became far
more convincing than its creators
had imagined.
"It came off too real," explained
Reverend Paul Smith, who with a
group of students planned the skit.
"There was not adequate preparation. We miscalculated," he added.
Sermon Interrupted
The first half-hour of the mass
went normally, but the beginning of
Smith's homily (sermon) was interrupted by a cry of "holy shit". One
of the 'actors' in.the skit, Michael
Juliano,came down from the Chapel
House inner balcony and explained
that while listening to a football
game on a radio upstairs, the
emergency broadcast system came
on to announce the attack.
"Everybody believed," said Tom
Martello, "and people started freaking out—they didn't know what to
do. I thought to myself: 'this is it'."
"First I blamed Jimmy Carter," he
added, "1 thought 'damn it, Carter
did it already and he's not even in office yet'."
"Most people had an initial reaction of fear," explained Joyce Belza,
another student at the mass.
During the five minutes of confusion, students screamed, cried, and a
lew actually fled the building.
Different Reactions
"Someone should have been outside," said Ed Griffin, one of the
students who had planned the skit.
"We had expected a lot of different
reactions; we didn't anticipate people leaving."
Others were calm. "People were
saying they wished they'd told their
parents how much they loved them,
that they had wanted to this or that,"
said Lisa Biundo. "I felt helpless,"
she added, "then I relaxed. There
was nothing I could do. I was in a
da/e I sort of watched what was
going on around me."
"I don't think it justifies it," said
Smith, "but I do think some students
gained something. Some said their
priority system changed."
"The importance of today became
very immediate to people," said Griffin. "I think this was a tremendous
statement of whatever the antithesis
of apathy is." He added that "the

main point was ohseured by the fears
and. later on. by the resentment."
Some students believe they gained
insight into what the last minutes of
life would really mean. "I appreciate
people more," said Belza. "I wasn't
scared of dying; I was scared of living
through it. I found out I'm realistic."
Stick Awhile
"You could go at any time," said
Mike Piekarski, "you should be
thinking of other people. I think it

Four Students Arrested On Drug Charge
by Paul Rosenthal
Albany Police arrested four
SUNYA students Thursday night on
charges of criminal possession of
drugs. The four face a preliminary
hearing today in Albany city Police
Court.
Police arrest records stale that 25
tabs of LSD and more than one
ounce of marijuana and hashish
were found in one of the suspects'
downtown Albany apartment.
Lawyers involved in the case said
the suspects, all males 18 and 19
years old, have each been released on
ten thousand dollars bail.
According to police records, the
suspects have been charged with a
Class C felony which carries a standard maximum penalty of six to 15
years.
SUNYA Public Safely Director
James Williams, while not involved
in the case, observed that under
usual circumstances, "Nobody gets
the maximum sentence."
Williams said SUNYA students
are no more likely to receive leniency
in the courts than any individual
without an arrest record.
Linda Lcventhal, an attorney
retained hy SA to post hail and make
first appearances in court for
students, said the suspects' cases
were referred to at least three other
lawyers. She said the four students
had a good case and "some charges
might nol even stick."
Arrested were: Peter Anselm,
Dominick Kvietok. Eric lieringause.
and Jeffrey Charno. All four were

there," said Sister Helene Mailcy. "If
it's the end . . . you can do no more
good, no more evil."
Many students were upset that
they had been used. "It was unethical," said Eileen Duggan.
"How can you play with people's
emotions?" said Biundo.
"We were . . . guinea pigs," said
Belza.
"I didn't agree with the approach,"
explained Newman Association
President Victor Patience. He felt it
was wrong to induce people to lay
bare their deepest feelings under
false pretenses. But, he added, "I un-

lieringause and Charno, located at
live McPhcrson Terrace in downtown Albany.
Attorney William Cade, hired to
represent Kvietok, noted there
would be a "potential conflict of interest" if one lawyer was lo speak on
behalf of all the suspects. Regarding
the specifics ol the case. Cade said,
"My lips are sealed."
Members of the Arbor Hill
Neighborhood Police Unit made the
arrests shortly after ten p.m. Thursday. Police refused to comment as to
whether an ongoing investigation
had taken place.
Official arrest records indicate
that drugs were found in plastic vials
and wrapped in tin foil.
Williams said that student arrests
of this nature are not commonplace.
He also noted that the activities of
Albany cily police are not monitored
by SUNYA University Police. "We
don't look at their records and they
don't look at ours," he said.
Williams added, "They [Albany
police] handle it all themselves." He
maintained he had no Influence over
their operations.
Leventhal said she believed lhal al
least one charge against two of the
students would be dropped. She
staled that even with a guilty verdict,
imprisonment of more than four
years is unlikely.
Terrence Kindlon, the attorney
representing Anselm, said that a
preliminary hearing usually occurs
within 72 hours of the arrest. Since
his client is no longer in custody,
Kindlon said, he probably would
have no recourse against police in
this case.
dcrslood their poini. It was done, in
my opinion, without the least bit of
malice or trickery."
The point was to illustrate a section ol the Book of Mark. It is about
the end of (he world, and reads in
part: "As to the exact day. or how,
no one knows it, neither the angels in
heaven nor the Son but only the
Father knows."
Smith described the point as the
"prcciousness of time in the light of
crisis."
"You got the gut reaction," said
Belza. "it definitely was the best way
to get this effect."
Wilhina I'cwminuK" of the initial
scare, a tape of Martin Luther King's
speech the day before he was
assassinated was played. The tape
made the people realize the situation
was contrived. "I've been up the
mountain," King said in his speech,
"and I don't care if I don't get to the
other side."
Feelings, in retrospect, vary.
"They didn't realize the magnitude
of the emotions they were dealing
with." said Martello. "They totally
ruined the day lor 4(1 or 50people."
"The intention was good," said
Piekarski, "bin I do question the
methods."
'I don't think I learned anything,"
said Duggan. "I really didn't believe
it." She did not see how such a war
would come so suddenly, without a
precipitating international incident
or some other kind of event. "It
never sunk in."
"I would never want anyone to go
through what I went through." said
Biundo.
Smith made the point that this
particular group was particularly
trusting; thus, the skit particularly
convincing. "Michael was so
realistic," he said, and he cited "the
total credibility of the worship setup" as the reason why so many were
convinced.
