there is no more wuiting. The first
big "lest" of the season is tonight. A
victory will not only go a long way
towards deciding who the SUNY
Athletic Conference Champion will
be, but also give full bragging rights
for the next 12 months.
The "test" for the Albany soccer
team will be a high spirited match
against the nationally ranked and
undefeated Division I Oneonta Ked
Dragons at 7:30 p.m. tonight in
Bleeker Stadium.
Last season, the Danes invaded
Oneonta at a time when the hosts
were ranked us the number-one
soccer team in the state. Albany
came away with a hard fought I - 0
triumph, a loss which sent the
Dragons into a tailspin that saw
them finish at 8 - 6 - 2 and without a
spot in the NCAA playoffs.

Do not he deceived, however,
because Oneonta is very much a
team to be feared. They managed to
capture their first two games this
season without allowing a goal,
while also posting a shutout over
highly regarded Southampton
University of l-'nglund.
"You know whenever you play
Oneonta it will be a good team,"
remarked Alex Pagano before
practice yesterday. Again this year
the Ked Dragons are ranked among
the top 10 teams in New York,
although they have been hampered
by injuries.
"It will be a lough and physical
game. It is every time we play them,"
noted Dane defenseman Vlado
With three starting players out of
tonight's match wilh injuries, and
still Iwo more regulars listed as
"doubtful" by Oneonta Coach
Garth Stam, the team stands us
somewhat of a mystery.
The worst injury toll was taken in
goal. Oneonta's Paul Byrne was the
regular keeper last season, but both
he and his understudy Mike Bednarz
have been lost to physical problems,
leaving the job to Bob Cullen.
Slam, who was reluctant lo
comment on his players when
contacted by phone yesterday,
described Cullen as "very capable".
Unscored upon this season, it
appears that defense will be
Oneonta's strong suit.
"Our defense has been doing a
good job," said Stam. Part of the
reason is the play of fullbacks Alex
Brannan and David Mcl.eggan.
"Brannan is a very tough, hard
player." remarked Pagano. Stam
himself praised Mcl.eggan for his
performance this year.
Stam seems to have more
question marks than healthy players
at the key midfield positions. Iwo
very strong halfbacks, Tony Ileal
and Gary Davis, will not see action
while the only remaining regular,
Oscar Parriga, is just returning from
the wounded ranks.
Oneonta will show a very unique
style of offensive play at Bleeker.
"We use a combination of long balls
and controlled shorl passes. The
style is very much are own,"
proclaimed Stam.
Despite their unusual attacking
m e t h o d s , the Dragons have
managed only three goals thus far,
including a meager one goal effort
against Potsdam, who is a perenially
weak SUNYAC team. This fact
makes it easier to understand Stain's
statement that, "We have no
dangerous players up front." Look
for Chris Moore and John Cato lo
muster most of the scoring chances.
Overall, Stum is expecting a light
from the Danes: We always have a
good contest with Albany. I he
games have been very good the last
few years and I expect the same."
As Albany looks to win this
"test", they need only look as far
back iis Wednesday for encouragement.

Kennedy Tape Jolts Johnson
BOSTON (AP) A recently released "oral history," taped by
the late Robert F. Kennedy in 1964 shows that President
John F. Kennedy wanted to promote former Defense
Secretary Robert S. McNamara as a presidential candidate
to keep Lyndon Johnson out of the White House. The
Boston Sunday Globe quoted tapes — pan of the John F.
Kennedy Library which will open Oct. 20 — in which Robert
Kennedy told diplomat John Bartlow Martin that President
Kennedy thought more highly of McNamara than of any
other member of his cabinet. "And we talked — we
anticipated in 1968 of, you know, Lyndon Johnson
becoming a candidate and he thought of trying to move in
the direction that would get the nomination for Bob
McNamara," he said. Kennedy said that although the
president was impressed with the way McNamara handled
himself in the 1962 Cuban missile crisis where, the younger
Kennedy said, "you can sec what can happen to a country
and how much depends on a particular individual." The
younger Kennedy's recordings were made the year after his
brother was assassinated, and four years before he was
gunned down himself.

"We probably face the most difficult General Assembly that

was second in command to his predecessor, Andrew Young,
and said Sunday that as ambassador he would continue to

Egypt Requests More Aid
ISMAII.IA, Egypt (AP) President Anwar Sadat indicated
Sunday that Egypt would seek additional U.S. military and
economic aid, but a lop U.S. foreign aid official w-ho met
with him said a massive increase is "unlikely" because of a
tight domestic budget. Sadat did not reveal the size of the
increase Egypt sought, but said "in due time this will be
declared." He previously has said Egypt needs as much as
$15 billion in reconstruction aid over the next five years.
Douglas Bennet, head of the U.S. Agency for International
Development, did not rule out aid in reascs to both Egypt
and Israel. But he indicated the increases would be nowhere
near the multibillion-dollar figures the two countries have
K ted at. After meeting with Bennet, Sadat told reporters
Vice President Hosny Mubarak had briefed top American
officials last week about Egypt's economic and military
needs. The United States is now providing Egypt about $1
billion a year in economic aid. plus $1.5 billion in military
assistance over the next three years. Egyptian officials have
indicated Egypt needs up to $10 billion to refit its military,
which is equipped with aging and obsolete Soviet hardware.
Soviet Skaters Glide West
BERN, Switzerland (AP) The Soviet husband-wife figure
skating team of Olcg Protopopov and l.udmila Bclousova,
four-lime world champions and twice Olympic champions,
have defected to Ihc West, the Swiss Justice Ministry
announced today. Their request for political asylum in
Switzerland follows the recent defections of three Soviet
ballet dancers in the United Slates. A ministry spokesman.
Ulrich Hubachcr, said the 47-year-old Protopopov and his
43-year-old wife, the premier Russian skating team of the
1960s, defected during an exhibition lour of Western
Europe, He said their request for asylum was made several
days ago and he expects a Swiss government decision will
take several weeks. Hubachcr had no immediate comment
on the motivation for their request or on their present
whereabouts in Switzerland. The Protopopovs were world
and European figure-skating team champions from 1965 to
1968, and won the Olympic gold medal in 1964 and 1968.
They skated in a ballet style that was a departure from the
standard technique of the time. The pair had been expected
to seek their third Olympic gold medal at the winter games
next year in Lake Placid.

additional apartments in Albany."
Phinncy agrees with Kennedy's
doubts that adequate housing is
available for the number of students
SUNYA admits each year. Kennedy
said the problem is caused by
SUNYA's lack of adequate housing
facilities, citing the overudmission of
students as forcing thousands lo
move off campus each year.
"The University just isn't aware of

causes." he said. "They dor't see the

According lo Kennedy, the
impact is much larger than mosi

seven thousand students live off
campus this year, 35 percent of these
live in apartments with four or more
people, he said.
Since so many people are directly
affected, OCA and PHNA have put

Doctoral Programs Under Study By State

said McFarland,

Coordinator of the Doctorate
Review Project Ms. Minor.
SED criteria used forjudging the
quality of a doctoral program are
based on faculty recognition in the
field a n d t h e g r a d e s of
undergraduate students, explained
Vice President of Research and
Dean of Graduate Studies Richard
Hall. "The better quality students
are attracted to a recognized
doctoral program."
In the past, SUNYA's History and
English doctoral progrums were
terminated after failing lo meet SED
s t a n d a r d s . The Chemistry
department was put on suspension
in 1977 because of the low number
and decreasing caliber of students
who applied for the program, said
"The Chemistry department is
now ready for rerevicw," he added.
"In 1978 we bad a group of chemists
who helped lo develop a three year

of a doctoral program, We made
improvements and we are hoping for
rerevicw by Ihc SED."
Most of SUNYA's doctoral
programs have been successful, adds
McFarland. "Our Political Science,
Sociology, and Anthropology PHd
departments were rated number one
in past years. Those which were
terminated were few in comparison
to those which were successful."
McFarland believes that the
programs presently under review
stand a good chance of success, but
adds "that due lo the number of
variables involved in Ihc process it is
hard to tell Ihc outcome".
According to Hull, the doctoral
evaluation begins with u self study
done by the department in review.
Ten copies of this study are then
submitted to SED, which later sends
a cite team to the department to
interview faculty and students, This
process is called "peer review" or
evaluations conducted by reputable
persons in the field.

Last Wave Leaks
Peter Weir's The Lust Wave is a strange,
fascinating film about the end of Ihe world.
Structurally, it reminds me of Nicholas Roeg's
brilliant 1973 film Don't Look Now, in both
cases Ihe audience doesn't know whul Ihe
hell is going on (or most of Ihe running lime.

Bui where Roeg gave us .m ending that lied
together most of the loose ends, Weir and his
co-scenarists come up with some aboriginal
garbage (the film was made and set in
Australia) that only makes matters more
confusing. It's a shame because the material
preceeding the final ten or fifteen minutes,
though baffling, is very interesting. We're told
of a lawyer (Richard Chamberlin) who's called
upon to defend a groupof aboriginals accused
of murder. During this period he's tormented
by a series of bizarre dreams involving the
same defendants. While all this is going on
Australia is in the midst of its biggest rainfall in
centuries, but it just keeps pouring on and off
for weeks in no apparent pattern (if this
doesn't sound odd it looks odd in this movie).
There's more to the plot (I think), but it's
much too complicated to detail here.
However, the interest of this early part makes
the ending all the more dissatisfying.
Technically, the film is impeccably irwde.
Weir's visuals are often stunning and he uses
set ting in a way few directors do. In most films
the setting (unless it's some blindingly
beautiful locale) is so realistic you barely
notice it, but in this film where what
happens is almost as important as what
happens. The first rainstorm occurs at a
schoolhouse where the teacher has written
SUN all over the blackboard, a man is
murdered near a hospital, and the hero's final
revelation (similar to Donald Sutherland's
discovery at the conclusion of Don't Look
Now) occurs in a sewer; true, these are rather
amateurish ironies, but Weir - an amateur
filmmaker with only three films lo his credit —
slides them in gracefully without the neon
light pretentions of many new directors. The
fact thai so much of The Last IVaueissogood
makes it that much sadder that Weir gets lost
in the tale he's trying to tell. The point of the
story, or at least what 1 assume is the point,
the end of the world just occurs for no reason.
While it's good lo be spared another replay of

Where Is AlumnPs Mail?
If the ^4 SP was mailed to Alumni Quad residents, chances are that they wouldn't be
reading this right now. Through a combination of U.S. Postal blunders and lack of
administrative communication, mail to the students o n that quad has been halted,
delayed, fouled up, and thrown into a state of utter confusion. N o one is taking
responsibility, and very little was first being done to expediate a solution.
Since Alumni Quad's location puts it into a different zip code area (12203), there is
the option of having their mail delivered through the local city post office, or through
SUNYA's post office (12222). Because of sloppy local service, SUNYA decided
originally to have the mail sent t o the uptown post office first, then down t o Alumni.
This caused an obvious delay because it would have been much simpler and more
effective if students living d owntown used the 12222 zip code. But, they were never told
of the switch, and continued using the 12203 one. So, mail went downtown first, then
uptown, then downtown to Draper for sorting, then finally, maybe a week late, to
Alumni. A fifteen cent stamp really does go a long way.
Also, uptown's post office was not fit to handle the increase, and was forced to stop
delivering to Alumni on Saturday, an illegal action that caused even further delays.
The responsibility for taking quick and effective action on this problem lies
somewhere, yet nothing substantial was accomplished for too long a time.
Clearly, there was an immediate problem that demanded immediate action. Yet,
sacks of mail sat for days, undelivered, as those involved couldn't decide who to blame
or how to find the solution.
Central Council Representative Herb Alvarez first blamed the University for failure
to notify students of an address change. The Director of SUNYA Mail blamed the
Albany Central post office for keeping slacks of mail from ever getting to SUNYA.
Albany Central denied the accusation. The Alumni Quad Coordinator halted mail
from the local post office because they were leaving mail "outside the steps." The local
office denied this. The Director of Albany Mail then requested Alvarez not to blame
the administration, who is just now beginning to wake up lo the problem.
On top of all this, there was another bungle. Initially, the Alumni Quad Coordinator
responded by advising (he students living on Alumni lo have all mail sent to 12222.
Now the S U N Y A post office has reversed thai decision, and are asking them to have it
sent to 12203. This indecision on their part will undoubtedly lead lo further delay as
confusion abounds.
There is absolutely no reason lor students living on Alumni Quad to suffer at the
hands of incompetency. Delays in mail service can cause innumerable hassles and
problems, but it seems thai this problem was given very little priority, less lhan the
seriousness of the situation demanded. Some students did not receive checks on time,
forcing them to borrow money from friends. Phone calls flooded the office of the
S U N Y A post office from irale parents, one whose child had not received medication
for her diabetes.
It is not very often that a situation arises that really demands
administrative decision making and quick action. In this case, such a situation did
arise, and the proper authorities reacted with the opposite: Indecision, slowness, and
an outward lack of communication. Despite the fact that ihey were "working towards
a solution" the Alumni students were in ihe dark for too long, with no letters from
home lo even keep them occupied.

change. "1 looked at Heidelberg as a
springboard action and was looking
for a bigger school to go to,"he said.
When I found out about the
Coaching job at Albany. 1 thought if
Albany was anything like Gcncseo, I
would definitely be interested,
As it turned oul. Skeel was very
impressed with Albany and decided
lo lake Ihe job. "1 saw for myself and
my family an excellent opportunity,
a place where 1 could stay, and
really, I hud done everything I could
do at high school and college, taking
programs and building winners out
of them."
In assuming the Albany head
coaching job. Skeel replaced Hob
Burlingame. who retired at the end
of last year after 20 years of coaching
at Albany. Skeel finds replacing the
established Hurlingame most
challenging: "Had the previous
coach been a younger person being
dismissed, then I'd be more
concerned about inherent problems.
Anyone who puts 20 years into an
athletic program has done a
fantastic job—you don't even
question it. The fact that he won 200
ball games tells that he knew what he
was doing. 1 consider it a sincere
privilege to replace him as a coach
and let's hope I'm allowed as much
time to get my act together."
Skeel is a young, enthusiastic
coach in his 30's. He is hard
working, dedicated, and very
disciplined, seeing himself as a

players hard in practice. "What I can
honestly say about these guys," said
Skeel, "is that everybody is putting
out 100 percent. Skeel believes that
the team belongs to the players. "I
Also in for a change will De the
recruitment program. "Recruiting
will be done very systematically and
very heavily all year," claims Skeel,
who feels that Albany's selling
points include financial aid,
attraction of a good education, and
-a chance to be exposed to a good
baseball program.
But this year, Skeel will work with
a team that he took no part in
t tilding. "I'm in here without a
single recruit." said Skeel, "not one
recruit. I'm in here with what's here.
I probably have the biggest
challenge I've ever faced, and that's
lo take this program and try and
make a winner out of them, and the
mark is on me. I hale losing and it's
going to be a very difficult season for

Skeel sees a gold mine at Albany

"The only difference between
Albany and a Division I school is the

are working as hard here as Ihey are

difference is Ihe amount of money

Lightning-Quick Scores Key Dane's 20-0 Victory
by Mike Dunne
NEW HAVEN - Lightning struck
three times at Bowen Field last
Saturday. The bolts, comini! in the
form of unusually long Albany
touchdowns, led the Danes to a
20-0 victory over the stubborn Owls
of Southern Connecticut.
The often unheralded special
teams provided most of the
excitement for Albany. They
accounted for two touchdowns and
also blocked a pair of kicks,
enabling Dane head football Coach
Bob Ford's squad to overcome
another lackluster offensive
The three big plays were as sudden
:is they were exciting. First, there
.vas Don Bowen's 73 yard punt
return, then hallback Jack Burger's

initial big play lor the Danes.
laced with a fourth and 1.1
ituation on their own 37 yard line,
southern Connecticut coach
George Del.eone sent in Tony
SantiUi to punt the hall away.
Sunlilli, whose first kick uf the
afternoon was blocked by Dane
defensive end Erie Singletary,
[lighted a low line drive toward the
right sideline. Bowen. a 5*10". 170
lb. junior, fielded the hall on his own
27 and immediately cut towards the
center of the field. Picking up
blockers, he accelerated down the
sideline 71 yards untouched, lo put
Albany in the lead with 11:05
remaining in the lirst hall. Dario
Arango made good on the extra
point and the Danes led. 7-0.
he Albany offense managed its
deepest penetration ol the game late
in the second quarter.
Alter starting from their won 21
yard line, three Levi Louis carries
gained 21 yards to give the Danes a
across midfield despite some good
field position. Penalties often times
killed drives for the Danes and was a
point which concerned Ford. "We
had loo many penalties today,"
Ford said. "We had three holding
calls, which were crucial. We had
too many first and 25 second and
long situations." Albany totaled 76
yards on nine penalties.
Further commenting on his
offense, which was outgained 308 to
189 by Southern Connecticut, Ford
said, "Our offensive line still hasn't
jelled. We haven't been ublc lo run
the perimeter. Before the year is out
though, 1 believe we'll have an
exciting offensive team."
Burger then gave the superb Dane
defense some insurance points, as he
took the second half kickoff at the
six yard line, followed the blocking
wall up the middle, and found clear
sailing into the endzone to complete
an exciting 94 yard return. An
attempt ai a two point conversion
failed, leaving the score at 13-0.
The Albany defensive unit, led by
Unfortunately for the Dane
Booters, Oneonta got that goal first.
Jt came early on with 16 minutes

Red Dragon midfielder Oscar
Parriga sent a corner kick along the
endline to winger Mike Cato, who
was being marked closely by
Albany's Ali Kamara. As Cato
turned towards the goal both he and
Kamara went to the ground. Much
to the disagreement of the Albany
players and fans, the referee called a

Photo Equipment Stolen

Photography equipment valued
at $900 was stolen from a SUNYA
student Monday in a broad daylight
mugging on the podium.
According to SUNYA Department of Public Sufety officers, an
Olympus camera with Iclcpholo lens
and accessories was grabbed from
University Photo Service staff
photographer Steve Essen about
5:30 P.M. in front of the University
. According to police reports, the
assailant approached from the rear
as Essen photographed a subject for
Torch '80. Essen pursued his
assailant and twice overtook him, a
scuffle ensuing each time.
The subject of Essen's photograph
turned out lo be an accomplice in Ihe
larceny, as he violcnlly kicked the
victim while his other attacker held
him on Ihe ground.

Quarterback Terry Walsh then
kept the ball himself on an option

called a timeout to discuss their
choices: A 4K yard field goal attempt

Ford opted for the latter. Walsh
ran an option play into theshortside

had little running room and was
pushed out of hounds well short of
the first down.

Education Building.
According to one SUNYA police
officer, Essen also-caused Ihe head
of one of his assailants to collide
violently with a pillar.
"There were hundreds of people
milling around who saw il happen,"
said the officer. "It's an out-and-out
mugging, right in the daylight. We're
kind of amazed ourselves. It's not a
common thing on campus."
Since Essen had taken a snapshot
of his subject, a photographic record
of one of his attackers did exist.
According to Essen, however, the
photo was destroyed in the
developing process when il was
accidentally exposed to light.
The incident has caused many
students to be increasingly wary of
carrying valuables on campus.
"I'll still carry my camera," said
University Photo Service staff
photographer Suna Stcinkamp.
"Bui not when I'm alone. I'm going
to be u lot more nervous."
In Iheir search for suspects in the
case, SUNYA Police have compiled

assailants. One is described as a

Student Legal Aid No Longer Free
SA Cities High Cost of Service
by Michael P. Fried
Student Association legal services
will no longer be offered free of
charge to SUNYA students. Citing
rising costs coupled with a rapidly
expanding program as the primary
reasons for the move, S A Controller
Craig Weinslock announced that
students represented in court by SAemploycd lawyers will be required lo

SA Legal Services is presently
operating under a $25,000 budget
with an income line of only $6,000.
The difference is made up with
student tax money through Central
Council allocation.
"We're already subsidizing the
program $19,440," said Weinstock.
"It was the decision of the Budget
Committee that any more subsidies
would hurl other student groups
because if we subsidized this more,
we'd have to cut money ,to the
student groups."

Last year Lester made about 150

Clifton Park. He explained that the

of time and resources lo make those

Hock said that the Legal Services

A recent Legal Services
advertisement printed in the Albany
Student Press, intended to in f, "m
students of the new fee, was headed
by the words "Attention Crooks!!!"
in bold type. The advertisement was
apparently ineffective, as many
students huve not been aware of Ihe
courl appearance fee.
"It was a quick ad," said Hock. "I
didn't have time to come up with a
good one."
Many students claim they will
seek legal services elsewhere, such as
through the slate-funded Legal Aid
Society of Albany County or the city
public defender's office.
"My opinion would have to do
with how students feel about the
fee," said Lester. "If students are
against it, I'm ugainst it. I'm for free

Within these curly stages of
production, five Central Council
members resigned, presenting u
questionable image of the student
government. What problems do
these resignations pose? Is Council a
viable organization which is capable
of creating campus policies? Can Ihe
student determine the effectiveness
of their elected representatives?
Dutch Quad representative Steve
Natureman transferred, thus forcing
him to resign.
Council member Steve Cox could
not be reached but sources reveal
that bis activities occupied too much
of his time.
Slate Quad representative Andy
Bickwil resigned because of a lack of
lime to devote lo bis duties as a
council member. He wanted to be
fair to those who elected him. "In
order to be an effective rep, you have
to devote a lot of time to SA."

night meelings, creating a special

Bickwit, these requirements extend
beyond the minimum; one must
constantly be circulating within the

But Bickwil admits there are
council members who will not
properly represent their quads; there
are those individuals whose
involvement with other activities
interferes with a time committment
to council. Several members did not
do a commendable job last year,
