SUNYA Gays Seek Fair
Protection Rights
by Susan Milligan
In an attempt 10 prevent
discrimination against homosexuals, the SUNYA Clay Alliance
has issued a proposal to President
Vincent O'Lcary requesting an
extension of SUNYA's anlidiscriminatiun policy.
"Since gays and lesbians arc not
protected under any federal or stale
law, we need to be protected against
discrimination by the University"
said SUNYA Gay Alliance president
J. Scott Robinson.
The present university policy
states, "The State University of New

Terry Walsh's Two Yard Touchdown Run
With 1:42 Left Boosts Albany To 6-0
by Paul Schwartz**
The game and Albany's
undefeated season were both rapidly
corningtoanend. A Dane21-12lead
early in the fourth quarter had been
erased by the powerhouse Norwich
offense, and the Cadets had
rocketed to a 25-21 advantage with
nine minutes remaining.
Now there was but 3:13 left on the
clock, and Albany, still trailing by
four points, had time for one last
game and possible playoff-saving
drive- With an incredible Norwich
penalty giving them the ball on the
Cadet 45 yard line, the Danes took
control. Finding success running to
the outside all afternoon, Albany
suddenly used their final scries to
pump the football inside against an
ever-widening Cadet defense. And
with lightning-quick efficiency, the
Danes confidently charged to the
Norwich two yard line. With just
1:42 left, Albany quarterback Terry
Walsh cut through a hole created by
his offensive line, and rolled into the
endzone, giving a frantic finish to
the Danes' 28-25 victory over the
Cadets Saturday at University Field.
"Of course I'm very pleased with
the final result," said Albany State
head football coach Bob Ford. "I'm
probably never totally pleased — we
are always striving for perfection.
We had some key turnovers and
some defensive lapses and missed
tackles. Hut each team seems to
develop a personality, and when this
team was down, they came from
behind to win. It means westayalive
another week."
Report By Chuck Priore
Key In Final Dane Drive
by Bob Bellafiore
After Albany State's third offensive series of the final quarter
against Norwich, sophomore fullback Chuck Priore reported to his
Dane coaches that the Cadet linebacker he was to block on a
particular set of plays was overpursuing and leaving the middle open.
That was all the Dane staff needed to know. On the next offensive
series, Priore ran the ball up that same vacant middle twice for 18 key
yards to set up Terry Walsh's two yard, game winning plunge.
"We hadn't been giving to the fullbacks all day," said Priore. "We
were hoping for over-pursuit and then hand off underneath the
According to Albany offensive coordinator Mike Motta,"We had
the fullback blocking because of their defense. The linebacker was
beating him across. Chuck was going clean."
Halfback coach Gary Reynolds felt that the defender's mistake was
due to the effectiveness of the outside running game. "Once we
established that we could run outside, they (the Norwich linebackers
and defensive tackles) didn't read as well as they should have."
Of Priore, Reynolds said, "He's a picking-type runner. If he's got a
little room, hell make something out of it."
Motta sustained the downpour of praise about Priore. "He's a
money back. Give him the ball and hell pick up the yardage." Priore
netted 84 yards on 15 carries for a 5.6 average on Saturday.
Priore; who may not have been the game's star player, but certainly
was the one to turn the game around, felt confident about the ability, of
'.he Danes. "I feel great," he said. "I knew we'd come back and do it.
We had a great week of practice. We went out there, everyone gol
together and said 'we're gonna do it'. The offensive line was fantastic

With 4:44 remaining and Albany
still trailing 25-21, Norwich

A Yale University psychiatrist
and pharmacologist is warning that
the smoking of cocaine could
become a significant health problem
in the United States.
Dr. Robert Byck says he is
concerned about reports that some
users of the popular white powdery
drug are beginning to use it in much
more concentrated form.
According to Byck, some coke
users — particularly in California —
are converting street cocaine to "free
base," a material similar to coca
paste which can be smoked in a pipe.
Byck claims that when smoked in
paste form, the cocaine is quickly
absorbed in very high levels in the
blood, similar to the effect of an
intravenous injection.
He claims the levels are so high,
they produce intense euphoria
followed rather quickly by anguish
and depression. To offset (he
reported depression, Byck says,
users continue to smoke more,
leading to dependency on the drug.
Byck says that for 2000 years,
Indians in South America chewed
coca leaves without any apparent
adverse health effects. However, he
adds, serious psychiatric problems
have occurred among South
American coke users over the past
three or four years after the
techniques for smoking cocaine
paste were developed.
Byck says he is disturbed by
advertisements in US magazines
promoting chemical kits for
converting street cocaine to "free
base" and for ads for pipes used in
smoking cocaine.

A Secret Admirer
To Forgive is Divine
To the Editor:
Several weeks ago, we read an
announcement in the ASP about holding a
vigil outside the home of an accused Na/i war
criminal. At first, we didn't know whether to
take the article seriously, but we finally
decided that it wasn't something that people
joke about. We feel such actions arc too
extreme, unfair, and unnecessary, and
consequently we went to speak to several
members of JSC-Hillel.
We arc. by no means, justifying whul
happened in Nazi Germany. The alleged
criminal, Villis Hazncrs, is charged with
deportability, and faces war charges in two
other countries. Legal proceedings have
already begun as to whether or not he should
be deported, and the proper authorities are
aware of the situation. During the hearing,
witnesses alledged that they saw Hazncrs
commit acts of extreme brutality, violence,
and murder. However, these are onl)
allegations, not necessarily realities.
To Err is Human.
by Hubert Kenneth Dickey
Human beings are human because they
exist in and with the world. This existing
implies a permanent relationship to the world
as well as an action on it. This world, because
it is a world of history and culture, is a world
of men and women-not simply a world of
We must have a clear and lucid grasp of our
action whether we wish to or not. Instead of
the mere "doxa " of the action we perform, we
must go right to its "logos ". That is the specific
task of philosophical reflection. The role of
this reflection is to react to the action and to
reveal its objectives, its means, and its
efficacy. If there is no dichotomy between
theory and practice, reflection on our action
reveals the theory-without which the action is
not a true one. The practice, in turn, acquires
new significance when it is illustrated by a
Anti-dialogue and dialogue are embodied
in contradictory forms of action. Thus the
factor which distinguishes an action of antiiialoguc cannot be a constitutive element of
an action of dialogue and vice versa.
For anti-dialogue to be effective, and for it
to attain its objectives, the action must be
supported by other complementary actions.
Thus anti-dialogue presupposes conquest,
manipulation, and messianism.
Anti-dialogue must destroy human culture,
nullify its form and encourages massification
(duhumani/ation and alienation).
True humanism, which serves human
beings, cannot accept manipulation underany
name whatsoever. For humanism there is no
path other than dialogue. To engage in
dialogue is to be geunine. Dialogue cannot
imprison itself in any antagonistic
relationship. Dialogue is the loving encounter
of people, who mediated by the world,
"proclaim" that world. They transform the
world and in transforming it, humani/c it for
all people.'I his encounter in love cannot he an
encounter of irreconcilable*.
Instead of problem-posing dialogue, we
seem hopelessly locked into the subjugation of
the student to the text, the reading of which
has to be "controlled."
Only within dialogue and problem-posing
go forward together to develop the necessary
interplay of knowledge, and the resulting
critical perception.

humiliation, degradation, and embarrassment in front of his family and neighbors. This
move will only serve to castigate a man, who

that this is the manner JSC-Hillel chose to stir
memories of a tragic and dark era in the
history of mankind.
With the vast resources of JSC-Hillel, one
would think that a more mature reminder of
the Holocaust could have been conceived. A
more tasteful presentation of the grotesque
atrocities of the Nazi's reign in Germany
would have been more appropriate than
publicly demeaning a resident by staging a
demonstration in front of his suburb home as
if he was convicted and proven guilty of war
crimes. This brings back sad memories of the
On the fact sheets, handed to us by a
member of JSC-Hillel, one of their objectives
was to bring this man's presence to the
"attention of those who support justice" with
the expectation that "he will be dealt with

whether holding a vigil outside this man's
home will present a fair and unbiased picture

Music is the liberation of the soul. It is supreme
ecstasy, divine inspiration. It releases us from mundane
perceptions of the world a n d , through
symbolism, it connects us to our o w n emotions and
thoughts. Music is love (Stevie Wonder, Liszt), and
passion (Bach, The W h o ) , and anger (Elvis Costello),
and anxiety, fear, hatred, despair (Billie Holjday). Music
enraptures the scope of human experience more
vigorously than any other art. The other arts, as sublime
as they are, can only imitate life, music recreates it!
But of all the arts, music is most restricted by business.
Popular songs are manufactured
to sell as many copies
as possible. Elaborate" advertising and promotion
seduces the public to like songs. O f allartists it is hardest

Against Justice
The acquittal of Albany Police Officers speaking, the 12 member jury's dF.ision has

The prosecution charged that Vita and
quest for truth and justice. Pragmatically
Buchanan had twice illegally entered Waterbury Hall and extorted money and marijuana
from several students. Attorneys E. Steward
Jones and Paul Cheeseman defended the
police officers on two levels. First, through a
relentless onslaught of innuendo that would
have made Joseph McCarthy blush, they portrayed the SUNYA students as irresponsible,
drug-dealing criminals. Vita and Buchanan,
on the other hand, were offered as innocent,
albeit misguided, champions of justice, doggedly on the trail of narcotics peddlers. At first
glance, one would have had a hard time
guessing who was actually on trial here.
Playing to a "disinterested" middle aged audience of twelve, Jones and Cheeseman impeached the students' testimony by stressing
their self-confessed connections with drugs
and dealing. Referring to the scene of the
alleged extortion. Jones called one student's
room a •'one-room crime wave." adding that
the students admitted to having sold pot 30-40
times. Cheeseman went on to assert that the
students had the greatest motive to lie. A n d ,
as if that wasn't enough, Jones charged that
the students sold pot to teenagers (horrors!),
and claimed that a "young adult," (who we
presume to be more reliable than the SUNYA
students) said that they also sold
hallucinogens. As astute counselors, he and
Jones recognized that by appealing to the
jury's fear and loathing of drugs they could
compel them not to accept the student's
Nowhere was this more apparent than In
Cheeseman s summation, as he suggested
that "we should take all of their testimony, and

belongs." Based on the jury's relatively short
deliberation {90 minutes), it is safe to say that
they agreed with him.

determined by advanced sales and orders). The others were Elton John's Captain
Fantastic in 1975, his Rock of the Westies in 1976, and also in $976 Stevie Wonder's
Songs in the Key of Life, which retained its lead position frr thirteen straight weeks.
In the coming months, as the BIG Christmas buying season approaches, new record
will be coming out by some of the biggest names in the business. Elton's new album
Victim of Love has just come out this week along with Barbara Streisand's Wet and
Donna Summer's On the Radio. These two queens of rock have released an 11 minute
single on which they both sing called "Enough is Enough." With the previous track
records of both ladies, the single and their albums will sell a helluvalot. Donna Summer is
working on her eleventh smash single. It all began with "Love to Love You Baby" in 1975.
A new record by her sells to a cross section of listeners, not just soul or disco'fans.
Middle-of-the-Road (MOR) is the bread and butter of the Record Industry.
Disco's selling draw has always been severely limited. After all, the whole ambiance of
disco depends on being in a disco itself and the amount of discq fans who actually go out
and buy disco albums are a small minority of the overall buying public. The popularity of
disco had been greatly inflated by its promoters and now, if disco artists don't get
absorbed into the MOR, as Donna Summer has, since broadening her appeal, disco as a
way of life will soon fade away.
New Wave also has lost its trailblazers, the Johnny Rottens and the more grotesque
and bizarre oulerfringe. Many "punks" have also absorbed toward the middle and- j r
have garnered fans from heavy metal rock groups which are almost like dinosaurs these
days. How long will it be before Elvis Costello and the Talking Heads have Number One
Hits? With any luck, never, as their fans would hope. The contention is among many that
popularity equals mediocrity. Often this is blind prejudice, since many of the most
critically heralded artists of our times are also Big Sellers. Neil Young, Led Zeppelin, Yes,
and Pink Floyd, to mention a lew.
Pink Floyd's new alburn is also due out soon. Other new albums coming out in
November and early December are by Steely Dan, Stevie Wonder, the Grateful Dead,
Jefferson Starship (without Marty Balin or Grace Slick), Emerson, Lake, and Palmer,
Yes. and Bruce Springsteen. All of these artists will boost sales and total volume way up.
The dire predictions of the collapse of rock as a popular art form has been widely held
but, in light of the most recent trends, seems somewhat presumptious. O n the contrary,
rock, pure rock, as defined by groups like Led Zep and the Eagles, is increasing in
popularity. Rock has been the biggest selling musical form since the early sixties and
looks like things will continue that way for some time.
There is a heartless element to the manipulations used by Record Companies to get
their groups into the select few who can sell albums by the millions with just their name on
a cardboard package. Often groups die in their infancy when the members just get
exhausted from the touring and promotional campaigns used to sell their name to the
public. A relative few survive those first years of one night stands.
There is also a corruptive influence inherent in the Record Industry in that it is almost
impossible for any normal human body to withstand the rigors of constant touring and
recording. Drugs are necessary crutches for many acts.
There are pressures to be outrageous and different to make an impression. But worst
of all are the very intense pressures to write songs which a computer full of graphs and
analysis and studies have proven to be a smash hit. Hit mentality is perhaps the crassest
part of the Record Industry. It is an insidious affront to the listening audience and, the fact

Suicide was the most obnoxious,

two. A banging keyboardist who used a
rhythm box more than any of the keys, and a
"vocalist". Real bad shit. People were ready to

A n d I r o n y For
Director Norman Jcwison's latest film, And
Justice For All is a reflection of its times. When
many Americans are cynical about their legal
system, when to many it seems the innocent
are unjustly punished and victimized while the
guilty go free, when fewer and fewer citizens
trust the courts and no one trusts lawyers,
when the concept of a fair trial has become a
rather bitter joke, it is hardly surprising that a
commercial film should reflect these attitudes.
Politics are everywhere, especially In the

Too long absent from movie screens, Al
Pacino makes an impressive come-back as Arthur Kirkland. an oddity in Baltimore legal
circles; an honest attorney. Kirkland is defending (with little success) a client who has,

Kirkland to defend him. Then mutual aniniosl-
ty is well-known, and he reasons that the only
reason the public would believe Kirkland
would defend a man he personally hates
would be that he honestly thought him Innocent. Here the plot thickens rapidly, and giving away too much would be a crime.
The script's main flaws are in its questionable character development. The writers
don't seem to have been sure who they
wanted to develop thoroughly and who they
didn't. The problems caused by this are minor
and easy to live with. The characters that arc
developed are for the most part well-drawn,
and the dialogue sparkles.
The acting, from a superb cast, is uniformly
excellent. As usual, Pacino shines, especially
in the climactic trial sequence, when he
delivers an opening address that most actors
(and a lot of lawyers) would give their right
arm for. Pacino delivers many of these lines
directly to the camera, a difficult task to bring
Also impressive, as Kirkland's grandfather,
is living legend Lee Strasberg, the clean of
American method acting. His portrayal of a

should have a wide appeal. This is a well-done
movie, entertaining and fast-moving, yet
makes some needed statements about the
state of Justice in America. Though It probably
won't win any Academy Awards, it shouldn't
be missed by fans of film entertainment meant
for slightly more discriminating tastes.
It seems that the most flamboyant careers
can pass almost without notice sometimes. In
the case of the late playwright-actor Robert
Shaw, this Is a true shame. Shaw, who died
over a year ago, had completed two films at
the time of his death. Last Christmas saw the
release of the first of these; Force 10 From
Nauarone, an undistinguished but generally
entertaining sequel to The Guns oj Nauarone.
The film was critically Ignored for the most
part, and the public stayed home. His last film,
Avalanche Express, just left the Capital District played for perhaps two weeks. I never
got to see It. The critics who did didn't like II.

feature of his performance Wolfe Is especially
moving in the scene already mentioned, In
which he tries to keep Ihe authorities from taking his wife Elizabeth. He finally acquiesces
under overwhelming odds, only to cry out in
renewed anger that they should not chain her.

but fiercely loving.

and what Is more, she has the same sort of
presence and clear resonant voice that Mr.
Wolfe possesses.She is an excellent counterpart for him.

courtroom scenes, he so effectively badgers

rather be killed than regurgitate the court's
brainless lies. Denying oneself and the truth In

demonstrates by having neighbors accuse
each other in general hysteria, denying ihe
truth is ultimately bad politics. The Crucible Is
pre-Watergate, let us remember,
Charles Wagner is oafish as Ihe Reverend
Parrls, the self-serving parson who slaits Ihe
whole mess. His oaflshness is right, except
that it smacks of twentieth century Long Island
- primarily the result of Mr. Wagner's accent
and hurried manner. He is no 17th century
Puritan minister.
The courtroom scene in which the three
young women wreak havoc under Abigail's
leadership is especially good. Between the
judge's bellowing and Ihe girl's feigned terror,
the tension escalates to the unbearable, .lust as
Miller planned. Donna l.oney Is intense and

that's just for starters. Brian Keith plays a

This film is about a meteor, but as this film
was also designed to appease, one disaster is
not enough. Not only does a meteor cream

wave, an earthquake, and the best disaster
I've ever seen — as the stars are escaping an

via a subway tunnel, the sewer mains all give

spoiled the surprise. O h , well. I'm still trying to
figure out why they didn't cram in a burning
skyscraper or a runaway rollercoaster.
Yeah, the plot is thin; not only are we asked
to believe that the Americans and Russians
both happen to have nuclear warheads in
space, but that these warheads are enough to
blow away a meteor big enough to take a
chunk out of the earth. This film's credibility is
further eroded by some shaky imitations of
meteors, and a spaceship floating past a desk
lamp. All the cliches are flawless, however.
When a loving couple from some far corner of
Ihe earth appears, a disaster faithfully follows,
and when Ihe roof caves in on Sean
Connery's save-lheworld party, the only
fatalities are Martin Landau, the poisonmouthed commander of the base, and a
sweet young girl who works the computers

building being torn d o w n , let alone the
massive wrath of Nature herself?
One more thing about those warheads.
Actually, I wouldn't put it past the Kremlin or
the Pentagon to have Ihem up there even
now, but I'm not so sure the Russians would
stand by and let the Americans grab all Ihe
glory by running the save-theworld mission.
The only thing they do here is send Brian
Keith. Geez, in Marooned, they send a whole
crew of cosmonauts to save two lousy
astronauts, and all they can do with the world
at stake is send us Brian Keith? Well, it is an
escapist flick, and it doesn't have you leaving

T o the Editor:
This is in response t o trie tetter concerning
the problem or buses and the Wellington
residents. As a former resident or Alumni
Quad, I have a particular interest in this
problem. First of all, making all Wellington
buses express is not the answer. This was
attempted last year and was disastrous for the
following reasons: either the scheduled
Alumni or Draper bus failed to make an
appearance, or by the time a bus did arrive
there were three times as many people and
thus not all of them could be accomodated.
Believe me, it is no fun to be crowded off
several buses while Wellington buses peel oul
of the circle with room to spare.
It is not logical to benefit one hundred
students at the expense of over one thousand,
especially since the real fault lies not with
them but in the bus scheduling itself. Why
should Wellington and Alumni residents be
played off against each other when beticr
scheduling could alleviate (he whole problem?
It is not fair for cither a Wellington or an
Alumni resident to be stranded at a bus stop
once the infamous Albany winter arrives. We
should slop squabbling among ourselves and
work for a better situation for all concerned.

The Right to Life
actually true of the abortion advocates, many
of whom say that it's cheaper to abort a child
than to provide services for him after his birth.
Several women used this argument Monday
night to support legal discrimination. This
discriminates against children simply because
their parents are poor.
Ms. Miccio used the typical pro-abortion
feminist argument that a person should be
able to d o what she wants with her own body.
If this is true, why can't a man use his body to
rape a woman, and why can't a pilot
intoxicate his body with alcohol while flying
a plane with passengersaboard?The answer is
obvious: other people's bodies arc involved.
Likewise, abortion affects another body —
that of the child. The child is not part of the
mother's body; from the m o m e n t o f
conception it is a separate individual with its
own unique genetic structure. T o claim that
the child is part of the mother's body is to
claim that a woman's body has two heads, two
hearts, four arms, four legs, and in some cases
male sex organs! Obviously the child's body is
separate from that of the mother, and n o
woman has the right to destroy a body which
is not her own.
People are People are People. . .
In a recent editorial, this newspaper expressed the opinion that value judgments and
truth are highly subjective concepts, and revolve merely around the preconceptions of
those denning them. They often arise from the desire to have a positive reason for
supporting or attacking a point of view or preference. These concepts are universal
justifications for accepting norms and castigating those who break away from the
norms. They can be dangerous, and relying o n them too much can result in a closeminded, antiquated attitude that not only shuts one out from reality, but also can hurt
other human beings as well who simply want to live happily as their conscience and
desires tell them to.
Sexual and affectional preferences are of a highly subjective nature. There is no
right, there is no wrong. There is just the personal preference of the individual; a
personal feeling that should not affect any other considerations being made on
someone, be it for a job or otherwise.
Discrimination on the basis of sexuai and attcctional prelerences is as unjust as any
other form of unrelated, insubstantial bias. It is an excuse to mistreat those who simply
d o not share an accepted standard.
Gays have been discriminated against for long enough. It is good to see that finally,
some steps have been taken to insure that gays receive the same treatment as others,
and can feel freer to reveal their preferences without the worry of complete rejection.
However, these steps have been small ones, and much more must be done to give gay
people equal treatment for jobs, for the military, and for their freedom of choice.
At this campus, some measures are being taken by the students on Central Council

To the Editor:

Alliance sponsored a presentation by Kris
M iccio of Family Planning Advocates on the
topic of abortion. During this presentation
several misconceptions arose which should be
Ms. Miccio claimed that the p r o - ,
abortionists are really "pro-choice", meaning
that no one must participate in an abortion
unless he so chooses. However, she then went
on to support Medicaid funding of abortions,
which requires that all taxpayers participate
in abortions by paying for them, it' the proabortionists really supported free choice, they
would have individuals and groups who
support legal abortion (such as Planned
Parenthood, Family Planning Advocates,
National Organization of Women, National
Abortion Rights Action League, and
Feminist Alliance) pay for these abortions,
allowing pro-lifers to c h o o s e not to
Ms. Miccio also stated that the propoied
Human Life Amendment, which would
protect human life from conception until
natural death, "will endanger the lives of those
already living." Abortion ends the lives of
those already living, since the child inside the
womb is alive. (This is not opinion, it is
scientific fact.) If this is Ms. Miccio'sconcern,
then she should oppose abortion. In the rare
cases where abortion is necessary to save the

Women Booters Trounce RPI, 5-1
by Susan Milllgnn
The Albany State women's soccer
team played an outstanding game
last Wednesday to beat RPI 5-1 in
their last home game of the season.
Although Albany did not play a
strong first half, they led R P I 2-1 at
the end of the half. Sue Stern scored
first for Albany, assisted by Gina
Soldo. Sue now leads the team in
scoring, with 8 goals to her credit.
Lisa France scored aguin for
Albany, assisted by Gina Soldo.
RPI scored their only goal in an
attempted comeback to end the half
with a 2-1 lead by Albany.
A reorganized Albany offensive
line came together and took total
control of the ball and the game in
the second half. Donna LaMonica
scored early in the half with a wellexecuted penalty kick. Lisa France
won her second point of the game
unassisted. R P I rarely had control
of the hall, and only infrequently
managed to get the ball in their end
of the field throughout the second
halt. LaMonica scored once more
for Albany in a skillful .10-yard kick.
Cioalic Laurie Hriggs also played an
excellent game with ft saves.
" R P I was definitely improved
from the last lime we played them,"
said coach Amy Kidder. (Albany
beat RPI 5-0 earlier in the season.)
Kidder said that her team is
experimenting with different lines,
with beneficial results. Albany will
play its last game of the season at
Springfield this Saturday, which
Kidder said "will be the toughest
game of the season." The team's
record now stands at an admirable

Rarely does a situation reverse
itself so exactly from one year to the
next as tomorrow's confrontation
between Albany and Ithaca. The
two squads have interchanged last
season's roles, the game location has
changed, and the physical condition
of the teams has also remarkably
been switched. And one other
element has remained constant in its
turnaround: A victory for Albany
would virtually lock their bid for an
N C A A Division I I I playoff bid.
while a win by Ithaca would keep
them in contention for a selection.

action in Ithaca.
A year ago, the Danes entered
their regionally-televised matchup
with lihaca posting a 5-2 mark. This
season, Albany is undefeated w i l h a
perfect 6-0 slate. Ithaca currently
shows a 6-2 reeortl. but last year they
were the club to come into Albany's
Hleeckcr Stadium with an K-0 mark.
T h e most t e l l i n g f a c t o r
tomorrow's outcome, though, could
be the injury factor. A year ago it
was the Bombers that were forced to
play without live starters, and this
season, it is the Danes that will limp
into Ithaca's South Hill Field.

Waving anti-Nazi posters and
carrying Holocaust memorial
candles, close to fifty SUNYA
students and Albany residents staged an hour-long demonstration
Sunday, outside the home of accused Nazi war criminal Vilis Hazners.
SUNYA's Jewish Students'
Coalition (JSC)-Hillel, which sponsored the event, transported people
by bus to Hazner's home in
Dresden, New York. The group
walked approximately a quarter of
a mile on an isolated road to the
house, where they rallied in an effort to precipitate action on
Hazner's case.
Hazners was not at home. A
source revealed that the 74-year-old
Latvian national was forewarned
about the vigil by a SUNYA student.
Although never convicted of war
crimes, Hazners has been charged
with sending Jews and other
minorities to death camps of preWorld War II Latvia. In addition to charges of physical abuse, he
has been held responsible for herding masses of Jews into a
synagogue in the Latvian town of
Riga, before setting it on fire.
After being charged with deportability under the Immigration and
Nationality Act and the Refugee
Relief Act, deportation preceedings
were begun against Hazners in
1977. Hazners apparently presented
false information on his entry visa,
thus enabling him to enter the
United States. His trial continued
for two years with post-lrial briefs
filed by each side three months aao.
Led by coalition leaders,
demonstrators recited speeches,
songs, and prayers which depicted
the pre-war Holocaust era and
reflected concern over the possible
presence of other alleged criminals
in the area.
In addition, pallbearers carried a
simulated coffin, representing the
12 million who died in the war by
Nazi persecution. The coffin was
placed at the entrance of Hazners'
driveway, with 13 memorial candles
placed on top.
Throughout the ceremony,
students scrubbed the asphalt with
toothbrushes, an act symbolizing
Nazi punishment inflicted on. Jews.
According to JSC-Hillcl President
Mark Gurvis, Jews were subject to
beatings while involved in this accontinued on page five

Rep. Torraca Wins Justice Seat
by Aron Smith
NEW PALTZ—A smiling Joseph
Torraca left Ulster County
Republican Headquarters here last
night grasping at victory, yet filled
with uncertainty. The Republican
candidate for state Supreme Court
justice shook the usual hands and
endured the endless applause inevitably associated with election
night drinking, before heading 15
miles north to Kingston and more
election returns.
Torraca made many such trips
last night. Distance was inherent in
the very nature of his campaign; the
third judicial district is spread over
seven counties from the midHudson valley to the Adirondacks.
Long distances served as a major
obstacle which Torraca had to overcome in the course of his bid. While
six years as Ulster County district
attorney placed him very much in
the public eye in the New PaltzKingston area, Torraca remained
virtually unknown in the Capital
Torraca resorted to a costly
media blitz in Albany and Troy.
The candidate hoped that by
plastering his face to every available
pillar, a certain name recognition
might develop and neutralize the effect of the popularity of opponents
front the region.
Apparently the strategy worked:
Torraca emerged with 26,176 votes
in Ulster County, some 3,000 votes
more than his nearest opponent. A
second Supreme Court justice seat
was won in Ulster by fellow
Republican Lawrence Kahn with a
total of 23,000 voles. Democrats
and conservatives received the short
end of this election, tallying from
730 to less than 100 votes.

Deputy Superintendent from 1975
to 1976.

Democratic incumbent James
Coyne kept the county executive
position away from Republican
Phyllis A. Smith.
Smith cited an "identity crisis"
as one of the major problems of her
campaign and an important cause
of her defeat.
"I have had no previous political
experience and am virtually a
political unknown," she said. "By
serving one term in office, my opponent has gained a following."
Smith believes many changes are
called for in Albany County
government, and that • relevant
change will not occur under
