Campus Asbestos Below Safety Guideline Levels Results From Air Samples

Campus Asbestos Below
Safety Guideline Levels
Results From Air Samples
by Charles Bell
Asbestos is present in various
locations on SUNYA's uptown and
downtown campuses, although at
levels below federal safety
guidelines, according to New York
Slate Health Department officials.
The agency released its findings
yesterday in a study of potential
asbestos contamination in SUNYA
buildings. Results were based on air
and content samples taken on both
campuses two weeks ago.
"In cases where asbestos was
found we are moving to cither
remove or encapsulate any asbestos
materials," said SUNYA Physical
Plant Director Dennis Stevens.
The New York Public Interest
Research Group, Inc. (NYPIRG)
claimed last January that the federal
asbestos level standards were
inadequate, threatening individuals
with asbesteosis, a serious lung
disease. While air samples taken
where asbestos was found contain
less than the maximum allowable
level, SUNYA's stated policy has
been to eliminate the material's
threat, according to Stevens.
The investigations came after
NYPIRG identified several areas on
campus where firc-retardant
coatings of ceiling tiles may contain
a s b e s t o s . N Y P I R G ' s own
investigation pointed to possible
asbestos content in Alumni Quad
dormitory ceilings and in a food
storage room in the kitchen of
Aldcn-Watcrbury Cafeteria.
SUNYA Vice President for
University Affairs Lewis Welch
said the study showed no asbestos
content in any campus residence
areas (student rooms or suites).
However, asbestos was discovered
to comprise 25 to 40 percent of
sound-insulators located in a
Colonial Quad machine room, a
foyer and equipment room in AldenHall, and in Walerbury's kitchen
store room.
The Waterbury storeroom was
closed last week after the potential
health threat was revealed.
"It was not necessary to continue
using the storeroom, so the prudent
course was to clear the area," said

handling asbestos. Asbestos found
on campus will be removed orsealed
as soon as funds become made
available for the project, he said.
"We will probably attempt to use
funds that arc not currently on
campus," said Stevens, indicating
that they might conic as a special
appropriation from the state.
Stevens said thai air samples were
taken in and near areas where
asbestos was believed to exist.
Asbestos content ranged from a low
of .007K fibres pet cubic centimeter.
The maximum amount permitted
under standards set by the federal
Occupational Safety and Health
Administration (OSHA) is 2 fibers
per cubic centimeter.
Areas of potential asbestos
contamination were originally

by members of the SUNYA Plant
Department and review of uptown

"Using these two methods," said
Stevens, "you ought to be able to
turn up any asbestos."

Awaiting Reinstatement
by Laura Fiorentlno
In hopes of being reinstated by
the State Education Department
(SED), the SUNYA Chemistry
doctoral program is undergoing
restructuring, according to Acting
Chcmistiy Department Chair
Ramaswamy Sarma.
"The doctoral program in
Chemistry was suspended two years
ago following the report of the SED
which said that the department did
not meet the requirements," said
SUNYA chose to suspend the
program rather than terminate it,
explained SUNYA President
Vincent O'Leary, because it wou.
make reinstatement less dilficult.
Limited student enrollment

of a required number of 90 students
enrolled in the program. SED
officials suggested that the
department increase its enrollment
to meet a faculty/student ratio of
one to four.
"I feel that this number is
unreasonable because not a single
department in the nation can meet
this requirement of fourstudents per
faculty member," said Sarma.
In addition, SUNYA's program
was compared to those of New York
State institutions such as Cornell
and Columbia Universities and

Nuke Protestors Plot Take-over
SEABROOK, N.H. (AP) Both anti-nuclear protesters and
defenders began gathering Thursday night for what the
protesters said would be an attempt to occupy the Scabrook
nuclear power plant construction site. Members of, the
Coalition for Direct Action at Scabrook, a loosely knit
organization of individuals and groups opposed to nuclear
power, said Thursday that they will still try to occupy the site
despite warnings that they will be facing police from all six
New England states. Police cars and National Guard trucks
were entering the site's guarded main gate Thursday while
demonstrators scouted the terrain, set up campsites and held
strategy meetings. An estimated 200 to 300 protesters were in
this town of 5,400 by nightfall, many of the camping free in
fields and backyards owned by local residents who support
their cause — stopping the Scabrook plant in particular and
the use of nuclear reactors in general. Members of the
coalition told reporters Thursday that "thousands of people
from all across the country will come to Scabrook in an
attempt to establish a permanent occupation of the plant
site." They stressed that Ihcir plans were "completely nonviolent" and defended their call for ladders, shovels and wire
cutters to break the fence around the site.

NEW YORK (AP) About 19,000 teen-agers gave the popca
guitar, a "Big Apple" T-shirt, a pair of blue-jeans and a
rising, roaring welcome Wednesday at a youth celebration
that was a, combination rock concert and basketball pep
rally. They greeted him with the pulsating jungle drums that
usually bring the home team hustling out of the locker room
in a big basketball tournament Then the rafters exploded in
an air-splitting thunder of shouts and thistles as the pope
circled the arena in his pope-mobile to the rock beat of
"Space Shuttle" and "Buttle Star Galac(ica" themes, played
by the 100 piece band of Brooklyn's St. Francis Prep. When
Pope John Paul 11 lifted a tiny blonde girl from a box seat in
hsi strong arms and placed her on lop of the vehicle's cab, the
young people from 200 Roman Catholic hgh schools in the
metropolitan area commenced the rhythmic chant: "Long
live the pope, Long live the pope." "The Theme From
Superman", delivered with blaring, brassy guslo by the
almost all-black Cardinal Spcllman High School band
serenaded the pope on his way to the throne set up on the

with the words, "Holy Father, we welcome you to our city in
your pursuit of human dignity for all." In the foot stomping,
cheering crowd, many young people had tears of ecstasy
running down Iheir faces. Several were carried out in a faint.

Wednesday bin said individual lawsuits could be filed. A
claim is usually the first step in seeking damages and, ifnol
sealed, is usually followed by a lawsuit. The giant claim was
filed last year against Niagara Falls, its school board, and
Niagara County, Hooker Chemicals & Plasties formerly
operated the notorious dump and the property was later
taken over by the school board. A school was built on the site
and homes and roads were built nearby. The state Health
Department declared an emergency at the site in August
1978, after chemicals bubbled lo the surface and the
department began finding evidence of higher than average
miscarriage and birth defect rates. The state evacuated more
than 200 families from homes close to the old dump. State
officials say they expect to complete construction on a multimillion dollar cleanup project later this month.
D.C. Dilemma: SALT And Troops
WASHINGTON (AP) A divided Senate wrangled over the
significance of the Soviet troops in Cuba on Wednesday us
West Germany's defense minister cautioned that rejection of
the SALT 11 treaty would create a "real crisis"for European
allies. A band of scnulors, most of them Democrats, held the
Senate floor for more than an hour, demanding that the
strategic arms limitation treaty with the Societ Union be
considered on Its own merits and not be linked to the
presence of Russian troops in Cuba. Meanwhile, critics of
the treaty continued a drumbeat of complaints about
President Carter's handling of the Cuba issue, calling his
response to the Russians disappointing, weak, inadequate
and uninspired. In a Monday night address to the nation.
Carter announced that negotiations with the Russians had
failed to produce an agreement that would change the status
of Ihc soviet brigade in Cuba. He pleaded with the Senate to
ratify the SALT 11 treaty without regard lo the situation in
Cuba. West German Defense Minister Huns Apcl backed up
Carter's contention that European allies in the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization want the Senate to approve
the SALT treaty.
Soviets Granted More US Grain
WASHINGTON (AP) The Uniled Stales has assured the
Soviet Union that it can buy up lo 25 million metric Ions of
U.S. wheal and corn in the coming year, ubout 60 percent
more thun it bought in 1978-79, a senior Agriculture
Department official said Wednesday. Undersecretary Dale
E. Hathaway said, however, that the permission to Russia
included "nothing that they will, in fact, iniporl thai
quantity" of grain in the coming year from the United Suites.
The Agriculture Department currently estimates that the
Soviet Union, besel by a poor harvest this year, will import
around 32.5 million metric tons of grain from all foreign

Student Patrol Back In Action
Work/ Study Pays Students
by Sue Gerber
After a Iwoand a half year hiatus.
SUNYA's Student Security Patrol
(SSP) went back into action last
weekend despite financial
This year a sizeable increase in
SUNYA's federally funded Work
Study Program was the impetus
behind the resurrection of the SSP.
According to SUNYA Director or
Financial Aids, Donald Whitlock,
$250,000 allocated lor Ihc project is
used to pay the patrollers all of
whom are Work/Study students,
The patrols Iwo supervisors are paid
by SUNYA's Public Safety
However only 11 of ihc 62
students referred to the patrol

recommendations and were hired.
Ideally, between 25 and .10 students
would be involved.
Work/Study attempts to place
students in jobs applicable to ihcir
planned vocations. However few
students feel the type of work which
the patrol involves has any relevance
lo their careers.
According to Patrol Supervisor
Mike Gilitos, motivation has
presented itself us a key factor in Ihc
program's low student interest. Few
students, he said, are willing to
sacrifice evenings and weekends
especially when more opportune
work hours are available elsewhere.
The SSP originated in 197.1. when
it was financed by the Public Safety
Dcpurtmcnt Temporary Services
funds. According to Henighnn. a
generally bleak economic situation
and state budget cutbacks were
responsible for the pilot project's
early demise. The student patrol was
restored for a brief period in the
spring of 1977 after SA funds
became available lo the project. As
funding dwindled the program was
The patrol itself is designed lo
assist the SUNYA police in
maintaining a safe environment on
campus. Acting as "extra eyes and
ears" for the force patrollers are
equipped with flashlights and radios
to facilitate the location of potential
hazards. Although they have no
enforcement powers, it is the
patrollers accessibility that most
aides SUNYA police.
Also embodied in the SSP is an
escort service catering to members
of the SUNYA community who
prefer not to walk alone on campus
at night. At present the program will
be in effect Thursday, Friday, and
Saturday nights after dusk until 1:30
or 2:30 a.m. Anyone desiring an
escort, or having related problems is
encouraged to eull the Public Sufely

A recently-released study of
Victnum veterans has concluded
that more than 40 percent of soldiers
who participated in the Indochina
conflict currently suffer from major
emotional difficulties and alcohol
and drug abuse.
The report, a preliminary study of
Vietnam veterans, was prepared by
the New York-based center for
policy research. It was made public
by the Veterans Administration
after a group called "Vielnam
Veterans of America" requested the
document under the freedom of
information act.
The Veterans Administration and
certain Congressional members
have previously maintained that
veterans of the Vietnam War have
readjusted successfully to postwar
life in the U.S.
The study, however, which
involved 380 veterans in New York
and Connecticut, found that 40
percent have emotional and drug
problems, while as many as 75
percent complain of nighmarcs,
marriage problems and j o b
Similar studies of veterans in the

Just What Is An
Honorable Cum?
by Lloyd Bishop
The University Senate has been directed to
look into the issue of honors requirements. By
November, the Undergraduate Academic
Council (UAC), a comnittee of the Senate,
will report back with their recommendation.
A proposal being considered would raise
the requirements. Presently a student needs a
3.0 for Cum Laude, a 3.4 for Magna Cum
Laude and a 3.7 for Summa Cum Laude. If
the proposal were to become effective one
would need a 3.23 for Cum laude, a 3.5 for
Magna Cum Laude and a 3.75 for Summa
Cum Laude. These new requirements would
not affect students currently enrolled unless
the student so chooses.
The arguments for and against arc
becoming more heated. Proponents claim
that during this era of grade inflation, which is
the phenomena where educational standards
arc not as high as they once were thus allowing
for a greater number of high grades lo be given
than were given in the past, honors
requirements should be raised because too
many students are graduating with (hem.
During the 1977-78 school year, for example,
44.H percent of our graduates attained a cum
of at least a 3.0. The directive to the University
Senate to look into the issue alleges,"lt is
highly doubtful that 45 percent of our
undergraduates are genuinely deserving of
honors." Further, the proponents assert that
the distinction of honors at SUNYA is
damaged when this percentage of students
receive them and that there could be longrange, detrimental effects on the University's
reputation. If the proposal were to be passed it
is hoped that students would be forced to
work harder to "make the grade" thus
maintaining or improving our reputation for
graduating qualified, well-educated young
Proponents would also like us lo keep in
mind that students applying to SUNYA,
assuming the policy is in effccl, would know
about the higher honors requirements. In
effect no one would be affected if they chose
not to be.
Those on the other side of the issue also
present a strong case. They note, first of all,
the sentiment that a 3.0 isn't easy to achieve
and maintain here at SUNYA. .These who
hold this sentiment, the opponent's stress, are
among the Albany student body — students
which were accepted into what has been
acclaimed to be the most selective school of
any state university system in the country.
Students who attend Albany arc quality
students. The mere fact they were accepted
attests to this, not to mention the fact that if a
student even graduates from this institution it
is a feat in itself. Opponents assert the world
beyond Perimeter Road is aware of this and
that our reputation is high.
In addressing the directive's charge that 45
percent of our undergraduates cannot be
deserving of honors opponents claim it is not
proper to attempt to predetermine what
percentage of students will receive a particular
grade. For example, when a student walks
into a class on the first day is it fair for the
professor to tell him that grading will be on a
curve thus effectively placing a limit on the
number of students who will receive a
particular grade? Opponents believe it is not.
Whether II) percent or 40 percent deserve an
"A"or"B"they believe the student should get
it. 'flic same should be held true lor honors
if one genuinely deserves it should he not be
Returning for a moment to our student on
the first day of classes those against the honors
change also arc concerned with the increased
competition the proposal would create. In our
classroom the students would by vying almost
viciously for the few "A's" and "B's" to be
given out. This naturally could only prove to
be unconstructivc to the learning experience.
Opponents project that the University's
attempts to get undergraduates to work
harder could have concomittant cost which
may be too high. Besides, why should the
pressure for reducing grade inflation be
placed entirely on the students? Could not the
faculty be asked to deal with this inflation
from their end in the classroom, to improve
their commitment to teaching in order to
maintain the educational quality it is feared
may be slipping away?
A Din Over Quinn
To the Editor:
Kindly permit me to respond to the
provocative issues that weie raised in two
letters by Kevin Quinn in tho ASP of
September 21, 1979.
In America, now and in the past, power has
been wielded by a few, for their own benefit,
and used to oppress and exploit the majority
of the populace, as Mr. Quinn suggests. This
common knowledge prompts questions that
inquire into the means by which the situation
has developed and persisted. Power is wielded
by interests, call them wealthy, special, or
whatever, by the employment of thcagencyof
the state. Influence and power are bought,
gained directly by office holding, or secured
by other means in a government that does,
ultimately by naked police power, invade,
restrict, and control virtually all of the
enterprise in this country. Governmental
control of the money supply has proved to
have staggering and damaging consequences,
i.e., it is the government that has inflated it,
which has caused the rising price
phenomenon. Add to this the many laws that
have been enacted by national, state, and local
legislative bodies throughout the history of
the country. Also, do not forget the
multitudinous rules and regulations that have
been p r o m u l g a t e d by the v a r i o u s
administrative and quasi-judicial agencies,
departments, el al. of the three levels of
government over the course of the country's
existence, Taking all of this into account, one
cannot dispute the pervasiveness of
governmental intrusion into the affairs of the
Let me take the liberty of imputing slightly
socialist overtones to the criticism contained
in Mr. Quinn's letter. What is the history of
every socialist regime? Is there one that has
true economic freedom and prosperity as
opposed lo governmental control and
planning (read: outright dictatorship and
inefficient economics) together with civil
liberty? Docs a socialist system of government
show more potential for individual freedom
Another consideration to be aware of isn't
immediately apparent but will be quite serious
if the proposal should become a reality.
Another idea that has been brought up could
very possibly result in plus/minus grading
becoming a reality on this campus. With the
concern the University is showing towards
grade inflation it is logical to assume that less
"A's" will be given out since the professor can
instead give out "B pluses" and "A minuses".
This phenomena coupled with an increase in
honors requirements no doubt means an even
smaller number of deserving students will
receive honors. Opponents of the proposal are
extremely concerned over this combination.
and less potential for abuse of power than a
non-socialist system of government as
described below?
There is no evil that inheres in the capitalist
system. Capitalism, in an unfettered economy
that is characterized by voluntary exchange, is
one example of a wholly legitimate, free, and
non-coercive economic system that can arise.
The evil that is currently imputed to
capitalism is the outcome of an unholy
mixture of socialism and fascism that is. by
the government, inflicted on the economy,
perverting and shackling it and prostituting it
to the service of the special interests that hold
sway in the government. It is the excessive
regulation and taxation of economic
enterprise, together with inflation, t|, al
discourages business activity and hence
reduces the number of existing jobs, hinders
the development of potential jobs, and
impairs the feasibility of the initiation of new
business. This is what perpetuates the status ol
the "downtrodden" who arc non-owners ol
the means of production. They can't get ahead
because they are not able to compete, nol
because of "unfair competition" by those who
arc already established, but because ol
government manipulation.
With respect to power and its effccl on lite
populace, history has repeatedly shown thai
power is abused regardless of the hands in
which it resides and the nominally benefit icnl
uses to which it is putatively being put. Power,
we must remember, is sought only by those
who seek to usurp the liberties of others,
exploit others, and impose their will upon
others. Those who have no such ambitions do
not seek power; to them, it is useless and
burdensome. Moreover, there is an
outrageous arrogance in those who assert the
outright lie whose boldness and enormity arc
worthy of Hitler that they and their cohorts
can run other people's lives far better than
each can run his own life. There is no good,
advisable, or safe distribution of power.
What solution, then, is there to this
problem? Government should huvc no power
at all, except that which is necessary to
protect the country from foreign invaders and
domestically to protect the populace against
force and fraud, i.e., real criminality.
i Any other activity on the part of the
As of yet the proponents have not addressed
this issue.

Growing up can be a terrible thing to happen to a kid.
We've all experienced it, or are experiencing it, or will
soon, but that doesn't make it any easier to take, just like
knowing that everybody is going to die doesn't make
death any easier to take.
But we endure the pain, the rigorous years of adjusting
to an alien environment, childhood is brief and precious
like a firey comet, it streaks across the dawning horizon
of our lives and is gone. Only the afterglow remains.
Our reward in the end, it is told to us, is the nobility of
adulthood. Being grown-up, taking charge, responsibility
are the rallying cries that get us through the battle. But as
with any gain, we must surrender a valuable possession.
The war inevitably ends, and we almost inevitably win,
we mature. In this grown-up world, we meet Fate. We
had been spared Fate as children, but there's no
sanctuary in magic fortresses or bespirited islands when
we are grown.
So we redefine Freedom. We set up governments'
which invent dictionaries which give us meaning to
words that got jumbled in the transition between
childhood possibility and adult tension. The United
States, the most stubbornly optimistic nation that ev»^
coagulated has used Material Success to dehrm
Freedom.That this might be a contradiction in terms
does not slacken us from pursuing the Great Suburban
Dream, not a bit, not until we catch ourselves sitting in
the driveway playing with our automatic garage doors
and counting T. V. antennae as Frederick Exley did in A
Fan's Notes. In the Soviet Union they define Freedpm as .
Sacrificing Freedom to the State. All efforts ark put II
toward one gigantic organism where the individual is as! I
free as a ribosome or an organelle. It is an efficient (J individual is allowed the caprice of Ranting
more than he needs, therefore no waste. And the state is
always ready, for those unfortunate enough to r>sed reeducation, to define Want and Need.
What the U.S. thrives on, for better or worse, is what
the USSR tries to suppress — hope. Hope can defy Fate.
It returns to us the possibilities of childhood. It keeps our
minds charged, our hearts leaping, our dreamgalive. But
Hope, the last of Pandora's gifts, is also a demon. With
Hope dangled in front of us we become eager to be led by
Fate towards doom or destiny.
And in the end, maybe it is best that way. "We don't
know.we can only hope-how we cling t o j t , the last
vestige of our childhood neverendings", the only
redeemer, saviour. Hope
In this issue we hope you'll be alarmed by our columns,

Glancing around the sparse room, forcing
an amiable but homesick smile, she says, "We

Anatoli said this clearly and crisply. His round

When we met, I looked In his box, and espied
his life savings.
I had wondered why he trusted me with his
cigar box when he first came In, and I asked
him about It weeks later when he was already

"I didn't trust ya," he blurted, "I had my eye
on y a . "
A sigh of relief ran through me. Although he
hedged the question, I could tell that it was a
child's blind trust of the man behind the
counter. My honesty was assumed. This incident had shown Perry to possess the child's
fallibility In simple Inexperience. Perry had a
tough outer facade that supressed childhood.

All three of Perry's older brothers are pro-

house, and himself.
At thirteen, the kid has it rough.
I first met Perry when I was working in a
local ice cream store with plnball, jukebox,
and hundreds of kids coming in every day
from the school across the street. He looked
different right away: filthy pants, a stained, ripped white T-shirt, hair knotted and messy,
and a very unkept look that differed sharply
from the neat appearance of the other kids.
Perry was none of those. This ragged,
precocious little kid immediately gave me the
once over, looking at me from head to toe. He
cased the joint and familiarized himself with
new surroundings, as if he was preparing to
move In. And In a way, that's exactly what he
"Hold this while I play plnball."

Since the father has moved out, the house
has fallen Into a state of disarray. It needs a
paint job terribly, the concrete needs fixing,
the furniture Is old and dreary, and the once
nice, ten room house In a fashionable
neighborhood is now the ridicule of the block.,
In the midst of this is Perry, Perry himself
has problems. He Is hyperactive, and until
now, the seventh grade, he has been going to
a special school. Now that he has transferred
to the normal Junior high school, he has encountered some new problems. In this
neighborhood, gossip travels fast, and Perry,
p.m. For those who hated h i m , It was torture.
But for me, It was companionship to get
through the day. And I have a hunch that
Frank felt the same way.
Recently, near the end of this summer, my
second with Perry at the store, there was a
wedding. Perry strolled In very late to work
one day, and grinning very widely, proudly
announced that his dad had gotten married
that morning. He beamed. He shone. His
father's new wife presented quite an opposite1
picture of his mother, and Perry's new stepsister was one of his few friends.
I always respected Perry for that glow. At
thirteen now, he was already old enough to
sense and be glad of the stability that was finally entering his life. A stability every kid needs,
but that avoided Perry his whole life up until
now. It was a happy moment, and he wasn't
even yelled at for being late.
Perry's father's wedding led to a host of
good happenings. Their home provided a
good family atmosphere, though Perry remained with m o m a few blocks away. But
mom got better too. Sensing the pleasure that
Perry was getting at her ex-husband's house,
she feared she would lose him permanently,
and made an effort herself to be more of a
mother. She's still no angel, but at least she's
becoming " m o m " .
Perry was a little distressed. He had lo be In
by a certain time, and his mother was making
him save a percent of his pay from the store
and his newspaper route for none other than a
bank, something Perry never conceived of
Looking at him for the first time, I didn't

those filthy rowdy kids that were put on this
earth to make my job difficult? One of those
poor kids who looks at me pleadingly when
everyone else licks an Ice cream cone and he
can't afford any? Or maybe this was one of
those quiet, friendless souls, the outcast of the
block, who finally mustered the courage to
walk In.
Seeing all this money, I gave Perry a second
glance, and when I looked up, he was staring
at me with a smile on his face, as if to say that
he trusted me, but you could never be too
sure. The kid asked me if I wanted to play plnball, and before I could even take some
change out, he had put In two quarters. That
was strange, I thought, because no kid ever
treated the guy behind the counter to plnball.
At least, I never did, and none of the other
kids did either.
Considering myself an expert at this
machine (I played an uncountable number of
games during slow hours), I was thinking I
would dampen my skill to give this strange
new kid a chance, though right from the
beginning, I sensed that confidence was not
missing from this youngster's personality,
although embarrassing to admit, the punk
creamed me, and ended the game by declaring that this was not one of his better games.
"Me neither," I half-heartedly told him, but
once since august, when I walked Into a pizza
parlor where he was hanging with a few
friends. His excited greeting was refreshing:
"I'm still not an adult, thank god."
Had It been two businessmen meeting on
the street after a time, one might have bought
the other a drink. Perry whipped out two
quarters from his socks, and placed them
squarely on a Space Invaders set.
"My treat," he said.
It was such an innocent time, when Kiss was
the unequivocal best, and when our lives
revolved around the girl next door, or having
7en old enough to talk, began having his first
affair, it didn't last, and Perry's mom never
even knew about It. She did know about the
second one though, and from then o n , the
marriage went straight down hill. The kids?
They went down hill too.
Perry's father stayed away from home more
and more, and his mother began having affairs
of her own. Raising Ihe family took the back
seat, or was packed away Into the trunk. At
the age of six, Perry was receiving minimal attention from eilher parent, and he was too far
apart from his brothers In age to fit Into their
circles. Their circles, by the way, were already
beginning to cut school fairly often, drink, and
very soon, smoke. Perry had no choice but to
develop his Independence.
The first job Frank gave Perry under their
new employer-employee relationship was lo

could ever imagine. We were still allowed to
go under the beds, or Into the closet, or run
around the table lo hit our little sisters. We
were allowed to romp!
But then we aged. And age takes Its toll on
the magic of childhood. A lady I know Introduced me to her kid the other day, and out
of habit, a smile swept past both our mouths.
And when the kid ran behind the curtain and
curled himself up, I had to cry just a little bit for
the joy he felt.
But you know what was so terrible? I felt
ashamed for crying, and there was no place'
for me to curl up and hide. I was at his
childhood, and I wished like hell I could have
been at mine too.

At that time, he was born into a normal, middle class young (amlly. The oldest son was
seven, one was five, one three. Perry's mother
was trying tobe a good mother and housewile,
but even then, she was beginning lo feel
boredom and frustration at her life. She fell
useless In her house, away from the nightlife,
her youth and love. Her husband worked long
hours, and she didn't get to see him as often as
she would have liked.
Perry's father, on Ihe other hand, didn't
mind being away back then. Four young sons
were hard to keep occupied, and he always
felt the burden of constant attention that his
children demanded of him. Besides, life with
his wife had somewhat lost the magic of their
early days. Her pregnancies had added a lot of
weight to her, and lo be very frank, she was
no loner very attractive to him. The young

For details call:
Chicago's thirteenth album Imaginatively,
titled Chicago 13 will lead some fans to cry
out, "There they go, another group sold out to
disco!" This Is not the case. Although the
album contains two songs with a disco beat,
the rest of the album contains the usual blend
of styles and sounds which make up Chicago.
It's been said that Chicago has found a new
style with this record, but I think it's more a
case of losing their old style than finding a new
sa funded
Like most new albums, you must listen to
this record a few times before you really like It.
Although this album has no classic Jazz-rock, It
has merit and Is pleasant enough. Chicago has
a great capacity to take any style of music, add
their jazzy horns, and come out with a very
original sound. I donot agree with the criticism
of Chicago that says they are guilty of being
repetitive. Certainly each song on this album is
very unlike any of their songs from the past.
But whether their change Is for the better Is
another story.
This is the first Chicago album In which
every member of the eight piece band Is
credited with composing a song. The album
opens with drummer Danny Seraphlno's nlnemlnule disco song, "Street Player". The drumming on this song Is suprlslngly unlmaglnatvle
and machine-like, especially for an excellent
drummer like Seraphlne, but then again, this
Is a disco number. The heavy percussion on
this number Is reminiscent of the percussion
finale of "Beginnings". The lyric of the song
reads, "I'm a street player-I've seen It allHljmen, thelves, and many a brawl-Bui as you
can see I still stand tall." This song of hard
times and growing up in the street Is
believable, considering the recent scandal
which alleged to have linked Seraphlne wllh
the mob.
Donnle Dacus' song is "Must Have Been
Crazy", a fine rocker witli a funky, southern

outstanding a musician as the late Terry Kath
was, Is a great performer and also adds a
dimension to the popularity of the group as a
sex symbol and movie star. ("HAIR") On two
songs, "Window Dreamln'" and "Aloha

He sounds like Peter Cetera, Robert Lamm,

that Ihey seem much more commerlcal, with
more "pop" music, Four of Chicago's first

shows, then you go nuts.
Last Friday night, when Johansen hit the
stage a t J . B . Scott's, the place went nuts.
Opening with "Cool Metro", a rocker from
David Johansen (his first solo record) he Immedlatley brought the crowd to their feet:
sweating, running, Jumping into the audience,
and flaunting his thin, sensual physique. But
as the title of his newest release suggests,
Johansen carried the show In Style.
Charlsmatlcally, he slowed the feverish pace
with songs like "Flamingo Road", a softer
ballad with a "money vs. the soul" message
and "Swahetto Woman", a dancing number
"about people who are oppressed that Just
wanna dance. In Johannesberg, South Africa,
the natives are controlled by the Dutch Refor, mist Church. They're only allowed In certain
ji parts of town and they have to carry I.D. sayjlng what and where they're allowed to do.

wordings. Friday night's performance Includ"Reach Out, I'll Be There", by the Four

Ryder and the Detroit Wheels.

(he song, I'll play It. All my stuff Is
autobiographical. I mean that's all an album
can do for someone is represent a piece of
their life."
!;; David, however, prefers to keep his per-

and Vision
sonal likes and dislikes to himself. "I don't like
talkln' about who I screw or what I get high on.
When I was In the N.Y. Dolls (a definitive
N.Y.C. street band which gave birth to
Johansen's cult following). I might strangle
you or Jump up and down on your chest while
doing this interview just to get my point across.
But things are different now. If you tell the
press everything, you've got nothing left for
yourself. How would you like sticking your fist
In once In a while?"
Johansen's stage performance, coupled
with his own unique brand of white soul has
consistently lead the press to compare him
with Mick Jagger. "Jagger's real fruity and
decadant. Just because you're white, and
you've got soul, you get compared to Mick
Jagger. That's bullshit! Mitch Ryder had soul
also. My approach Is real macho and positive.
Jagger's fruity, I mean I don't know what he
does at night. It's the journalists who can't
describe things as they really are, so they compare you to someone else. They shouldn't be
journalists If they don't have the vocabulary."
"Real macho and positive" hasn't always
been Johansen's approach to music. As lead
vocalist of the N.Y. Dolls, David appeared on
stage In ambisexual costumes and a loud,
challenging sound (1973-4). The Dolls were
daring to be different and proud of that difference.
"All kinds of people used to come see us.
There were all these disaffected people who
didn't know there were others like them, a
whole new generation of nighthawks sprung
up around us". The Dolls thrived In N.Y.C. in
clubs like Max's Kansas City and CBGB's. But
as the title of the last Dolls album (1974) suggests, they were "Much Too Soon". The
American public had just began to accept guys
wearing their hair like women, but dressing
like women was a bit too much. This leads
many Johansen followers, not excluding this
writer to think that Johansen was merely
ahead of his lime. The decline o ' the Dolls
lead David to form a band called the Dollettes
with Syl Sylvaln, ex-keyboard (or the Dolls.
"We were doing gigs where we didn't have to
travel too far", and although most thought that
David was fading Into obscurity, "I was making
more than I am now. We would pack-out

Johansen returned lo the stulo .n 197S to embark on his now expanding solo career.
On this note, we took our leave from the
Quality Inn bar and headed over lo David's
travelling bus. He laid back In his seat, sucking
on a Lucky Strike, weary from travel and
various press engagements.
"O.K. David," I asked, "Its a typical Friday
or Saturday night In N.Y. Where do you like
to hang out?"
"I hang out In bed", he smiled. "I don't llkt

Producers Justify the practice by saying that
In the extremely competitive film Industry,
they must have early guarantees, forcing them
to have signed contracts often before the film
In question Is even out of production. Theater
owners disagree.
"It's a business practice no other business In
the country Is subjected to," says Tom Harrlgan, District Manager for United Artists. "We
as exhibitors are business people deciding
what films should play, but the decision Is really being taken out of our hands."
With only a synopsis of the plot and a list of
credits, exhibitors feel they have little on which
to base decisions they must be committed to,
Harrlgan explained In an Interview. This, he
feels hurts not only the theater owner, who Is
taking the major business risk, (the producers
have already been paid) but also affects the
movie-goer, who cannot be assured of the
quality of the film he-she Is paying to see.
"We're most definitely concerned about
what the practice Is doing to the quality of product we can offer to our patrons," says Harrlgan.
Harrlgan cited Tfie Warriors, a recent Paramount release heavily criticized for Its violent
content as an example of a film that "the
public turned thumbs down on," and one that
local exhibitors might now have shown If they
had been allowed to screen It first.
' Blind bidding, currently Illegal In a handful
of states Is now becoming controversial In New
York. According to Chuck Asslnl, aide to Sen.
Hugh Farley, fifteen states have already
enacted antl-bllnd bidding legislation, and proposed legislation has been pending in New
York for a couple of years, though It hasn't yet
gotten out of committee. Senate Bill 5869 to
prohibit blind bidding has been Introduced by
Senators Levy and Bruno, and Is currently
before the Consumer Protection Committee.
Companion Assembly Bill 7923, Introduced
by Assemblyman Kremer Is currently before
the Sub-Committee On the Motion Picture Industry In New York State, headed by Clifford
According to Asslnl It Is doubtful that any
action will be taken this year, but It appears
that efforts will be renewed next year.
Vigorous lobbying on both sides Is expected.
Asked If he (and New York State exhibitors)
favored the proposed legislation, UA
spokesman Harrlgan answered "Most definitely."
Antl-bllnd bidding sentiment Is quickly
growing, with even top figures In the motion,
picture Industry coming out against It. Francis
Coppola, director of The Godfather, The
Godjather Part II, and the upcoming
Apocalypse Now has recently joined the
throng of film-makers who oppose blind bidding, and despite the thirty million dollars plus
prlcetag of Apocalypse Now, refused to have
It blind bldded. Locally, flimgoers can hardly
avoid short film trailers opposing blind bidding
which are now proceeding almost all feature
film! In the area.
According to the Levy bill, "...exhibitors are
unaware as to whether or not such pictures
(that have been blind bid) violate the Stale's
obscenity statutes." This, and the fact that
many films with top casls and big budgets have
bombed at the box office worries exhibitors.

"Bobby, I didn't say anything." Henry ran
behind the desk, his face quivering, his eyes
tense. The doctor sat confused and shocked.
Bobby knocked over a lamp. " Y o u

"Come on Bobby, It's not true."

The elevator slid down to the eighth floor. It
stopped. It opened. A fat lady got In. Bobby
pushed himself flat against the back wall. The
elevator dropped to the lobby. Bobby got out.
He rushed through the glass doors of the
building and ran down the street, bumping
and rebounding off startled pedestilans. He
scrambled through the traffic stream and
crossed the street, running as fast as he could.
Flooding his head were voices, " N o Bobby,
Bobby don't do this to us. We want to live."
Bobby ran with his hands clasped over his
ears. He forced them out. Suddenly his legs
collapsed as If he had been tackled. His hands
scraped against the rough concrete, and he
crawled Into a narrow space between two red
brick buildings. Panting furiously he wiped the
stinging sweat out of his eyes and hoped the
others would leave him. There was silence. At
last. His heart pounded like a fist against his
chest. He pulled out the knife from his pocket.
He opened It. The blade was dull and chipped
but It would do. The edge stroked his wrist
very lightly. A thin white line followed the
edge and faded. Bobby smiled. It would d o .

ASPIrin : For Headaches and Heartaches
Dear Jessica,
I have a problem concerning
school and I'm hoping (hat maybe
you would know something I could
do about it.
Last semester I took a course
which I got a B in. I did all the work,
did great on the tests so I think I
deserved an A. I talked to the
professor but he wouldn't change
the grade. I never got along loo well
with him and I think thai has
something to do with it.
Is there anyone else I can go l o
about having the grade changed?
Dear Jessica,
My composition teacher told me
today that I'm failing his class. I've
missed a few classes and he told me
thai if I miss one more I'm going lo
fail for the semester. Can he do this?

changing, he told me that the
procedure is to first thoroughly
discuss the situation with the
professor. If that doesn't do any
good, speak to the department chair
and explain the problem to him. You
will probably have tofilea complaint
with the Grievance Committee. If
you have any further questions
concerning this you can go into
CUE and get an outline on how to go
about bringing this before the
Grievance Committee.
As far as class attendance goes,
Dr. Lapinski told me that it is up to
the instructor. As long as he
announced the attendance policy to
the class al the beginning of the
semester, the class is responsible
for sticking to it, and the teacher can
fail a student for being absent from
class too many times.
'Dear Jessica,
I work in a restaurant near the
campus that a lot of students come
to. I'm a student too, so I know how
hard it is lo be on a limited budget.
The reason I'm working is to have
some spending money, but
waitresses don't make much from
their salaries and depend mostly on
tips. Twice this week students have
come in, ordered meals, paid for
them and left without leaving a tip. If
they could afford the meal, they
could afford to leave at least a small

In the September 25 issue of ASP, Mark

perhaps I should add racist), require a reply

Danes Open Up Offense In Win Over Brockport
Pirates, Orioles Lead 24) In Playoff Series
Extra Inning Victories
Give Pittsburgh Edge
P I T T S B U R G H ( A P ) Consecutive
extra inning victories in Cincinnati
had the Pittsburgh Pirates fired up
Thursday as they returned home,
hoping to finish off the Reds in their
N a t i o n a l League Championship
" I ' m looking forward to my first
World Series," said slugger Dave
Parker, whose 10th inning single
drove in the deciding run in the
Pirates 3-2 victory Wednesday.
The night before, it was a threerun homer by veteran Willie Stargell
in the 11th that beat the Reds 5-2.
Those two close victories left the
Pirates just one win away from their
first N l . championship since 1971
when they went on to beat Baltimore
in seven games in the World Scries.
"We've worked very hard for
this," said shortstop T i m Foli, who
has played a vital role in both
Pittsburgh victories so far. " N o w we
have a chance to win it before our
home fans and it'll be a big t h r i l l . "
It was Foli who doubled home a
controversial run in the fifth inning
of Game 2 after second base umpire
Frank Pulli ruled right fielder Dave
Collins had trapped a leadoff drive
by Phil Garner.
Collins dived for the ball and
came up with his arm thrust in the
air, indicating he had made the
catch. But Pulli, dashing out from
his second base post, ruled that the
ball had ticket theturf before Collins
grabbed it.
Pulli said, "1 called it 'no catch.' I
called it '-trap' all the way."
The Reds argued, of course, and
Manager John McNamara wanted
Pulli to ask for help from right field
umpire John Kiblcr. The baseball
rule book advises umpires that they
may seek help from a partner when
they arc unsure about a call. But
Pulli was sure and refused to ask for
Kiblcr's aid.
"It's my call and I made i t , " the
umpire said.
Garner moved up on a sacrifice
and then scored on a two-out double
by Foli, giving Pittsburgh a 2-1 lead.
It stayed that way as Pirate relief ace
Kent Tckulve weaved his way out of
a bases-loaded j a m in the eighth.
The Reds tied it in the ninth on a
pinch double by Hcily Cruz and
another two-base hit by Collins. But
then Omar Moreno opened the
Pittsburgh 10th with a single, moved
up on Foli's bunt and scored on
Parker's decisive hit.
The reds have left IK men on base
in the first two games and that has
been p i v o t a l . The slump has
McNamara troubled, but there's not
much he can do except wail it out.
"Our only strategy is to wake up a
few of our bats," he said. "We have
been in a slump since midSeptember. There's not much

"1 have offered to be of assistance
to Lorinda de Roulct or M . Donald

Pickett, referring to the club's
principal stockholder and one of its
board members.
Pickelt, a business consultant
experienced in turning around
sagging sports franchises, is
reportedly working on a deal to gain
controlling interest in the national
League baseball team.
Sources close to the Mets said
Wednesday that Pickett would
acquire more than 50 percent of the
franchise from thede Roulct family,
which still would c o n t r o l the
remainder of the stock. Sources told
the New York Daily News that the
deal amounted to $15 million.

B A L T I M O R E (AP) Eddie Murray

innings and survived a late rally to

Call For Complete Nuke Phase-Out
Booters Look To End Tough Week Vs. Brockport
Lose Yesterday To Tough Hartwick
After Rallying To Tie Cortland, 2-2
by Mike Dunne
A gallant tie with Cortland State
last weekend coupled with an
"impressive" 1-0 defeat at the hands
of soccer powerhouse Hartwick
yesterday has leveled the record of
Albany's soccer team at 2-2-1, and
catapulted several of thcirupcoming
games into the "must win"category.
The first such game will be
tomorrow's battle with the visiting
Brockport Golden Eagles.
Playing at Elmore Field on the
Hartwick campus, the Danes
managed to contain the Warriors
during the first half. Hartwick is
currently runked ninth nationally in
Division I.
It was not until the 40:01 mark of
the second half that Warrior striker
Andy Sobolewski penetrated the
Albany defense to score the only
goal of the match. This was only the
second lime in seven outings the
Warriors were held to a single goal.
In fact, their potent offense totaled
eight goals in their last two games.
The Hooters nearly came up with
their second dramatic lie within a
week. Fullback Luis Arungo,
playing for the first time in two
weeks, hit a sharp header that nearly
beat Hartwick goalie Aly Anderson.
Last Saturday ut Cortland the
Booters used a rare indirect kick
goal by Alex Pagano with 12 minutes
remaining in the match lo lie
Cortland. The sides then hauled
through Iwo scoreless overtime
periods before settling for a 2-2
The Red Dragons, spurred on by
a home crowd estimated at 1500,
dominated the early minutes of the
game. The first seven shots were all
by Cortland, but fortunately
Albany's injury riddled defensive
corps used a few misplays to their
advantage to temporarily frustrate
the Dragon offense.
"They could have had two or three
goals early," said Albany soccer
coach Bill Schicffclin, "For a
change, we got lucky."
Albany quickly changed the
momentum in their favor by
converting their first shot into a

made the final pass setting up
Serdsev, who boomed a hard shot
past a stunned Tom Matlavagc, the
Cortland goalkeeper.
"It was an outstanding goal; a
professional shot," said Schicffclin.
The D r a g o n s used their
considerable height advantage to lie
the game ten minutes later. A steady
diet of high crossing passes launched
in front of the Albany net produced
a goal when John Duvic controlled ft
free ball in the penally area and
lucked it in the right hand corner
behind Albany keeper Alberto
With the score knotted at l-l, the
defenses held forth for the
remainder of the first half.
The two sides, both members of
the Eastern Division of the SUNY
Athletic Conference, lived up to the
expectations of an intense and
evenly played match.
Early in the second half, Cortland
gained the upper hand on a goal by
Tom Case, which put the Dragons in
the lead for the first time. After
moving the ball down the right
sideline they chipped over the Dane
defense to case, who then pushed the
bull past Giordano. Cortland now
owned a lead which seemed safe on
their home field.
Ihc Booters nearly allowed their
hosts to put the mutch out of reach.
Wilh 20 minutes left a Red Dragon
forward eluded his defender and
confronted Giordano one on one.
The senior keeper charged off his
dove at the ball managing to deflect
"Wc were frustrated and had our
backs to the wall, but wc didn't
quit," commented Giordano.
Now with renewed hopes the
Danes began to force the ball upficld
to put pressure on goalie Matlavagc.
It paid off. With only 12 minutes
lo play in regulation lime the referee
awarded Albany an indirect kick
when Alrim Nczaj was Iripped
inside the penally area.

shot on the team, Alex Pagano,
