Another S U N Y A resident o f Albany's Pine Hills "student ghetto"
became the victim of assault Saturday, Ihc first reported case of rape
since classes were suspended for the holiday break.
Albany Police arc currently investigating the rape and sodomy of
the 20 year old SUNYA'student, who was temporarily slaying in a
Hudson Avenue first-floor apartment. According l o the police, the
woman was awakened and attacked at approximately 1 a.m.
The assailant apparently entered the apartment through an
unlocked window of a rear enclosed porch, then forced open the kitchen door. Police believe he left the apartment in the same way.
The rapist was described as a black male, approximately 5 ' 9 " , between 28 and 30 years o f age, with a muscular build and a dark complexion.
Police said there were some reported burglaries during the three
week vacation period, and entry had been gained in a similar manner
to Saturday's break-in.
The rapist is not believed to be the " P i n e Hills Toucher," who
does not rape his victims, but fondles them Instead. However, he

Soviets May Use Chem Warfare
WASHINGTON (AP) The Soviet army has brought decontaminating equipment into Afghanistan, raising the
possibility that the Russians may be prepared to use
chemical weapons against rebel tribesmen, U.S. intelligence
sources said Thursday. American specialists have no way of
knowing what this means. The sources said, however, it
suggests that chemical warfare may be used against rebels
and to clean up affected areas so they can be occupied by
Soviet military forces or Afghan government Jroops. Some
U.S. military specialists say the Russians may have brought
the chemical decontaminating equipment into Afghanistan
because this equipment is normally assigned to many Soviet
army units.
Afghan Ousts U.S. Journalists
KABUL, AFGHANISTAN (AP) The Soviet-backeu
Afghan government has ordered all American journalists
out of the country, accusing them of biased reporting and
"interference in the country's internal affairs," a U.S. Embassy official told the journalists today. Authorities detained the Americans at Kabul's Intercontinental Hotel, where
most were staying, and told them they would be expelled
Friday. About 50 or 60 of the approximately 200 Western
correspondents, photographers and broadcast crew
members now in Afghanistan are American. Most arrived
early this month after the Soviet Union poured tens of
thousands of its troops into this central Asian country,
where they helped overthrow one Marxist government and
replace it with another and have been helping the Afghan
army put down an anti-communist rebellion in the countryside. The Afghan order came three days after Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini's regime in neighboring Iran ordered
all American journalists out of that country.

million Jews in this city and we will not allow ihc I'l.o t0

England Urges Pakistan Aid
LONDON(AP) Britain's Foreign Secretary predicted that
the Soviet Union will not advance beyond Afghanistan for
the time being but warned the Western allies to give top
priority to bolstering Pakistan's defenses. "Anybody who
does not take the Soviet threat to the region seriously is certainly deceiving himself," said Lord Carrington after a visit
Wednesday to a refugee camp in northwest Pakistan 40
miles from the Afghan border and 18 miles from Kabul, the
Afghan capital. "There will be a period of comparative
calm," he continued. "But it will be unwise for the West
not to understand the urgent need for the defense of their
interests, including Pakistan's security."
Quake Shakes
U.S. Searches For Grain Outlets
WASHINGTON (AP) The United States, selling Mexico
some of the millions or tons of grain embargoed for shipment to the Soviet Union, wants to expand sales to other
countries, an administration official says. Dale E.
Hathaway, under secretary of agriculture, announced
Wednesday an agreement under which Mexico will buy just
over 1 million tons of the 17 million metric tons of corn and
wheat embargoed to the Soviets. He said the United States
was looking into the possibility of having other countries
buy more of the grain thai had been destined for the Soviet
Union, but declined to name the countries or indicate how
much grain might be involved.
For Yiddish
For the first time in nearly a decade, SUNYA students
will have the opportunity to read and discuss the classics of
Yiddish literature in English translation in a new 3-crcdll
course offered jointly by the Departments of German and
Judaic Studies, "Great Yiddish Authors in English
Translation" (German 246). The course includes works by
Sholpin Alcichetn about Tevye and his daughters, Isaac
l.ocb Pcrcl/'s controversial tales about passive heroes (or
are they buffoons'.'), stories about rabbis and scholars,
woodsmen and horse thieves, and even a short novel narrated by a horse. The course meets on Thursdays from 7:15
to 10:05 in Lecture Center 5. Enrollment for undergraduate
or graduate credit is still open.

SUNYA's Sociology Department
has appointed Professor Nan Lin as
Chair, effective through 1982. Lin
has been acting Chair since August,
when former Chair Ronald A. Farrell resigned.
College of Social and Behavioral
Sciences Dean John Webb said,
"Chairman Lin was nominated by
ihc department by preferential vote.
The department was overwhelmingly in favor of him because he is a
well known sociologist and has administrative-experience."
. Lin said he was reluctant to accept the position permanently since
he "was gelling lircd of it but after
further discussion decided to accept
because it was a bad time for the
Sociology Dcpartmenl to start looking for a new chairman." .
Lin received a doctorate in
Sociology from Michigan State
University and has a master's
degree in Journalism. He taught at
John Hopkins for five years. Lin
was born in China, raised in
Taiwan, and came to the United
Stales in 1961.
Presently, Lin is doing research
in the area of social influence
through nepotism within various
social classes. He is also studying
the effects of social factors in health
and illnesses, such as stress «s a

Brown is considering re-applying
for a pcderal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
loan to build an on-campus apartment complex. Last fall SUNYA'
was denied the $5 million loan that
would have funded an eightbuilding, two-story complex with a
housing capacity of 440 students.
Brown pointed out, however, that
the complex would take at least one
year to construct.
Brown may request a change in
the SUNY 1980-81 Executive
Budget proposal to provide for additional housing funds.
The building is within walking
distance of the downtown SUNYA
campus and the SUNY and CDTA
buslines. Brown estimates the
warehouse building could be converted to 50-60 apartments, housing
74-90 students.
In addition, Brown said that "tnc

having it renovated for the use of
University students."
Brown stated that although the
Lake Street building could replace
Pittman and hold more students,
"it would not resolve the housing
"There may be some other options," he said. "There's no doubt
that the doubling RA's rooms and
the tripling of a few other rooms,
are possible options."

Queens Stoops To Conquer
. In this country, there are three types of
animal: city dwellers, country folk, and suburbanites.
Each grows up with some knowledge the
other cannot readily acquire. The country kid,
for example, can reveal wonderful tidbits
abou,t,the milking of cows at 5 in the morning
and polling for Fresh Air Fund commercials
while splashing Into water holes.
The city kid, a much faster talker and walker
than his country counterpart, will be able to
guide you through the subways at age eight
and show you the art of "moving up" at
basketball games ($6 seats for general admission) .
And then there is the third member of the
species, the suburbanite, of which most of
SUNYA is comprised. The suburban kid mostly offers ignorance about Ihe things the city
dweller and country folk know. And he can

Queens, though technically within'the New
York City limits, has many sections which look

themselves as part of the suburbs.

little ditty we would sing that you wouldn't

on school trips and visits to relatives (much like
the suburbanites), there was one aspect which

slept on the ledge below the counter just off
the floor, and I read the newest Post (I believe
they put out a new one every hour or so),
while partially listening to the conversations of
Crete regulars, talkative and glad again just
because they got the hell out of work one
more time.
New York takes to darkness well, because it
becomes a different place. When I floated
away from Crete, it was already night. Neon
that was subllminally present all day suddenly
became a center of attention, and the Empire
State Building shot a beam of white light that
spanned the city.
At night, New York becomes a less natural

flashing on and off, presenting conflicting light

with zeal. 1 chugged my brew, signed it in
some language, and walked.
I was feeling strange and alone now.
Everyone was going out now, with plans, with
someone, 1 felt unburdened but lonely. 1 was
worrying about the coming midnight, the impending dawn. I sat down with some strung
out black street bums who seemed hardly
older than me. They devoured a joint 1 gave
them as we talked, and I felt their hesitancy
slipping away to the taste of good weed and
my trusting smile. Now I felt even, on par with
everyone else: 1 was with friends, and I mas

I needed speed because I didn't want to

Library steps were in the past, except for the
information they had given me — speed,

thick joint.
I approached the said subject cautiously, for

drifting through the drifting city, frequenting
less bars, taking my chances on the street.
I wanted It to get light out. but that wouldn't
happen yet. Even some of the neon was out
now, even it got tired and went to sleep. I
pressed on. stealing down blocks of east side,
recalling sights I remembered from that afternoon, ages ago. I walked by lonely Crete,
barely alive for all the hours in New York City's day. A new Post was on sale, new people
were buying it. Early morning workers were
downing coffee loaded with sugar, to wake
their muscles before going to gut New York City's garbage, or build New York City's
buildings, or maybe repair New York City
where it was hurting.
1 pressed o n . I wanted coffee, or tea, but I
didn't want to stop at the Crete. Going back
there would have made New York an enemy;
It would be a place I'd be using to gel away
from New York, familiarity amidst the
newness. Going back there would have been
unadventurous at this time of night, so I went
to a different place several blocks up: a carbon
copy that had a newer Post.
I sai there speed reading and drinking coffee
until just before the first glare of day's sunrise
was about to descend on Saturday in this city.
I walked the morning in by being there to see
it. I saw It completely. 1 saw the Empire State
Building end its beam, and I saw subway halls
start to spill INniy shoppers around to get the
best first. I saw the pigeons wake up and start
working again.
I found myself in Central Park, a natural
man-made wonder that lies in the heart of the
city, the eye of the storm, the peacefulncss
that I needed, to relax and enjoy as the
weather warmed a bit and glorious day got into full swing, a day that saw New York City
and myself a day older, a day more experienced. Hour number twenty-four was complete,
and 1 felt like I had seen the creation of light on
day one.
1 spent a lot of time in Central Park, sitting,
walking. 1 couldn't resist the steps of the library
again; human bonds, made even simply in the
heat of the night, were too strong. We sat on
the library tier, watching a crowded New York
take lively advantage of sweet weather.
Money was changing hands, and goods, and
words, and feet were heading Into mouths,
and other protruberances were going Into
other oraflces, because in New York,
everything is always going into everything, including cars into people and dogs, and other

to hold a willing victim for fifty. I wonderud
how my mind would take another ramble all
night on feet. Could I speed again, do 1 want
to? Could I sleep somewhere, do I need to?
1 . look out my wallet and eyed a nice
restaurant. The City was brimming with kitchens to sell food for any price. A nice meal,
alone. I thought, would energize me for Satur
day night, but so would a Big Mac. I ate dinner
at the Crete, familiarity after all. a compromise, a cheeseburger, coffee, ice cream

brigade. It was dark now In New York City

Il was even more crowded than the night
before. Bars were still home but I didn't want
to go home. 1 wanted to go in somewhere,
away from business, to a room with couches,
carpeting, a ceiling, and a drink without a
price on its head.
I had met many New Yorkers the night
before, but now I wanted one to take me
home. I was friendly but Icy last night and now
I was willing to warm up. 1 strolled around
Aves. and Sts. until my feet were ready to
strike, and I finally landed in a small spot in
The Village where I thought the natives might
be kinder, more willing to take a poor boy
home, hear his tales, and send him off with
breakfast and a hug the next morning:
I met Laurl. She was a plain looking New
Yorker, trusting, but wary, and I talked to her
for several hours at one table, and I would
have kept right on talking Until she was ready
to admit me to her world, o r a l least her apartment. She had been living in The Village of
New York for four years. She was twentythree.
had talked ourselves clean the night before.
Forty-eight hours after the 'F' train chauffeured me in, I was kissing Laurl goodbye with
an address in a lonely pocket. It was windy
and mean outside, but, aslired and used up as
I was. I had the means to bear it, For my final
act, I walked from the apartment straight up
S()lh Street, five miles in and out of the maze

I walked up to Tin.' Park, and at two p.m.,
sat di )wn on a partially i iccupied bench, d< me,
victorious, an honorary New Yorker. A bum
next to me asked for change, and since we
were sharing a scat, I made him rich. I was
particularly vibrant as the wind whipped aged
Ppsts through the air violently, and hats flew
off pretty ladies' heads, ladies who had come
from church.
I arose with a goal: out, I insisted on walking

it. Like Crete, or That Empire State Place, or
The Post, or '-auri, or The Ear, or the bums
on the library steps, or that crack in the
sidewalk I had admired on some street during
one of the moments of my journey.
So New Yorl. was done, and an 'F' took me
under the East River into a comparatively
dreary Queens, where the street saw the city
as a scene, a distant mirage of imagery, reality
a river away.
I took a long hard look at that place, My
body was tired: that place was responsible. My
mind was filled, and that place took the blame
again. But what about /(? Had I changed that
conglomerate body, given any of its cells any
extra nourishment?
To be an individual in New York City seems.
hard, challenging. It's always willing to take
you in, but you will join millions, who make
you no more than a person at a desk, or a
figure on the street. And for every desk of
yours there are millions, and for every block of
sidewalk you are on there are millions. A n d
you decorate your apartment and buy your
own clothes but there are millions.
I didn't sleep In the same bed as Laurl, but
on her lovely couch, in her living room, in her
apartment, on Bleeker Street across from a big
supermarket that had pink neon screaming

We had a good time together, me and New
York, and we'll get together again. We'll meet
sometime on 14th Street, or at The Ear, to
share a tale or a drink, or maybe a tragico m i c moment that defines its heart.
Four hours to go. 1 spent half that time with
Laurl, eating breakfast and lunch over the
Sunday Times, chewing bagels and eggs while

There was a time when a basketball and a
schoolyard were enough to keep a kid from
Queens content. But then one day, I can't
remember exactly when, I must've grown up.
Suddenly my Interested In the rubber sphere
that said VOIT on It dwindled considerably. I
could still bear the day, but night time was too
much. I guess a famous fat man said It best, I
was "all revved up with no place to go." I
complained bitterly of boredom, but person
after person gave me the same response:
"How could you have nothing to do? You live
in the biggest city in the world." So on a summer day when the hum of middle class Fedders air conditioners was the only noise being
made In a dry and dull Bayside, I decided to
brave it. I had heard so much clamor about
"The City" and how excitement was handed
to you on a silver platter. So I got on the Q16
omnibus which stopped right in front of the
schoolyard, went to Flushing, and boarded
the F train.
As I said, I had heard a million tales of
Manhattan. My main interests at the time (I
was 16} were music and appearing "cool". So
the first place I deckled to go was Greenwich
Village. I hard heard about this record store
called Village Oldies and read about all sorts of
musical enaeavora* In a paper called The
Village Voice that I found on the door ol the
subway. There was Folk Clly, where Bob Zimmerman gigged every now and then. There
was .Jazz at Tuesdays, and good old rock n roll
at "OMFUG-CBGB's". I emerged from the
subterranean railroad and made my way to
Blcecker Si., where .Village Oldies was. I was
amazed at the a
bum sleeping on a bench. There were clowns
miming, and people roller skating with large
radios on their shoulders. "What a
kaleidoscope of life," I thought, purchasing a
Joint from a dredclocked Rasteman and bopping my head in time with a street musician. 1
watched until I felt I had taken it all In. Was this
it? Was this "The City"? There had to be more
so I decided to take a walk uptown. I,passed
the 8lh Street Playhouse, where some of the
rarest and best rock movies are shown. I saw
the Joseph Papp Theatre where you can see
the hits before they reach Broadway, and 1
walked down Christopher St. and saw a gay
guy wink at me.
To my dismay I found myself on Broadway,
I had gone west instead ol uptown. I made a
right and continued my stroll. I saw Sammy
Davis Jr. plop-plop-fizz-flzzlng away on the
side of a bus, and read a billboard that said
"Carleton es mas ba]o." 1 passed through the
garment district where men in suits bumped
into me and didn'l seem to notice. I saw black
men pushing carts wiih rows of dresses on
Now by this lime it was beginning to grow
dark, and I had no Iritentions of spending any
of my nighl on the Infamous N.Y.C. subways.
But I was on ilStli St.. and there was no way I
was going home without a glimpse of 42nd St.
I had heard so much about how 42nd St. was
the epitome of sireet degeneracy. 1 saw
dealers, and a man selling little elephants for,
There was a
. jrtlslng "The
lid olher similar
neon deluge — "A Chorus Line, Broadway's!
Best Musical", "Yul Brenner In The King and
i". Now I knew where my parents went to
when they went to "the theatre". I followed
the signs all the way up to 54th St. and walked
towards 8th Ave. I saw a line of people waiting
outside a renovated movie theatre called
Studio 54. 1 watched in awe as limousines,
Mercedes, and other flashy cars dropped off
other flashy people. I here it was — the
longest running cocaine party in existence. 1
had heard about other good discos like New
York New York and Reglnes, and the Copa
Cabana, but the Studio was far and away the
No. 1 place.
Night was falling and 1 returned to Queens
to report on my journey. The next day I decid-.
ed to continue the venture. I went to Central
Park and saw a play In an amphitheater. I
walked through the zoo and saw another line
of people waiting to get into the Wolnian
Skating Rink where the Dr. Pepper music
festival was held every summer. Some people
on line were talking about other concerts they
had seen. I had heard about a small rock club
called The Bottom Line and a larger theatre
called The Palladium. Bowie was playing at
Radio City and I can't remember who was at
'where they sell the best hot dogs In the world
and had lunch.
1 walked back towards Central Park and saw
a hotel called The Plaza, where people dine In
a luxurious piano lounge and spend $7.00 for
two eggs. I walked down 5th Ave. and looked
in the windows of Cartler, Tiffany's, and
Rockefeller Center. 1 saw an advertisement for
Leonard Bernstein at Lincoln Center, and Arthur Feidler at Carnegie Hall, I was so crammed with ads and ideas that I found myself
But dumbfounded was a nice change from
boredom. I knew no matter how long I tried,
I'd never run out of things lo do. I welcomed
exhaustion, I was tired before one-half the day
was over. I had learned of an endless frontier
of experience, knowledge, and entertainment.
I felt like Columbus discovering the new
world, because as the saying goes, "If you
can't find it here, they probably don't make it."
There are rewards altached lo living in the big^jiist city In the world — you can develop the
broadest mind In the world. The only problem

to the Museum of Natural History where 1 saw
reconstructed dinosaurs and learned about
Darwin. There was a big to do at the
Metropolitan Museum of Art, but I decided to
check out the Planetarium instead. I saw a

The only way we can ensure the release o f

Superpairioiism and war hysteria will not

It is very clear from the letters published in
this newspaper that many minds on ihis campus arc so clouded wilh their own ideals and
beliefs that the one and only issue at hand is
becoming grcally distorted. That issue is the
immediate and unconditional release of the
50 Americans that are unjustly, irresponsibly, and inhumanely being held hostage In
Iran. No other issue can be discussed,
debated, or defended until these 50
Americans are released. It is this violation of
international and basic human rights that has
united America. The cry for vengeance, lor
respect, and ultimately, for war, is not tillered lightly. Americans know the horror of
war. The memory o f Vietnam is ever present
on our minds, precluding the need to visit a
Veterans Administration hospital to see its
victims. However, there conies a time when
all diplomatic and peaceful means have failed. There comes a time when the burning o f
American Embassies, and the killing and kidnapping o f Americans in those embassies,
must end. There comes a time when one can
no longer turn the other cheek, for it has
been turned too often. If, unfortunately, no
other means but war will guarantee that the
rights of Americans will be protected, will be
respected, so be it. During the war for independence, one proudly displayed banner
read, " D o n ' t iread on m e . " The time has
come when all nations must learn to respect
that idea.

To the Editor:
The ASP is a very fine college paper but,
like all, it has its faults. I believe that others
will agree with me in saying that the ASP has
been known to print misquotes. 1 understand
that the ASP wants to relay certain messages,
however, putting quotes around something
someone never said is very amateurish and
deceitful. A reporter has no righl to rearrange words in a statement and quote it.
Rearranging words can make the difference
between honesty and lying.
I am referring in particular to my quote in
the past December 7th issue of, "Where is
Power Bred — The Aspects 5 0 . " Alter seeing
the quote that was put next to my. name, I
wished I was never chosen. True, a quote saying, "Once the group chooses who tliey want
to hear, I have to sel up the whole t h i n g , "
may sound like a powerful statement, bu 1 I
do NOT do the whole thing, and I NEVER
said It, What I do is oversee the whole thing
(event). A word change like that lakes away
all die credit thai the group, and especially
the vice chairperson, deserve. Il makes a difference!
Now, I understand that the ASP iries to
present accurate quotes and stories, but is
their mistake lair to me'.' Is it fair to anyone
— Roberta I arkan
T o the Editor:
1 hove been on the faculty here for more
than ten years. While a student til a scry large
mid-West university 1 wrote for the daily student newspaper. I do mil read the ASP.,
However, your Idler sounded sincere so I'll
lake the time to write a sincere letter. I did
pick up a copy of the ASP last Fiidas lo sec
If, indeed, it had improved since my last encounter with it some years back. Il had uol.
So I'll go ahead with my note.
You said you had a desire lo do the " l i g l u
things" and become a "responsible publicat i o n . " Well, doing so is uol really using lo
see how many four letter words you can cram
into an issue. Before you label me a prude let
me say that I spent four years in the Murine
Corps. I've heard and used all of the words
and all of the combinations of words dial
your paper might come up with. I'lint doesn't
mean, however, thai 1 want litem llfnrslcd ai
tne in a publicaiion which may offend people
who read things in my office and in my
You said you weren't aiming ai one group
o f people. You're wrong. I'd say you're aiming al the immature readers who gel a kick
out o f being able lo contribute or just read
the four letter words that Ihey won't find in a
"responsible" newspaper. There's an old axiom in journalism and in show business
which says that if the material has to he
" b l u e " and rely on lour letter words, I lien
the act is strictly second rate, tlow does the
ASP stand u p i o thai lest. 1 think you (and all
of the editors before you) base under-fated
the campus community. Most o f them seem
lo be able lo struggle through I he N. >'. Time,
and other legitimate newspapers without nisi
skimming and looking for I he compromise o f
obscenity. It appears that no ASP editors
have ever had the courage lo edit the letters
and articles which would fall fltu on their
face if they didn't create an interest by their
choice ol' words.
If you are as sincere as you say, give it a
try, You might end up with some credibility
after all.

I n the Editor:
Who be these Irish folk that do liner the
Podium sieps with their puddles of remorse
each parly night? How do they gel on campus, these Gaelic sots who would leave no poicni refreshments for the rest of us??? I sorely need a drinkydrink, but where is there a
bar stool without some Mickey O'Toole or
Molly Maguire perched upon il? I thirst for
justice and beer. We must harmonize our
parched throat-cries into a song o f indignation. Pop the Corkers! Dump die Dublincrs!

Last night, Albany went ahead
for good early on, and, in the second half. CSR never got closer
than 13, with the margin of victory
being the biggest Dane lead.
Five Albany players were in double figures in scoring (Hardy, Ray
Edwards and Glen Phillips-18,
Mike Gaincs-17, and Greg
Watson-12), For CSR, 6-8 center
Tony Franks netted 20, Mike Carrgol 17, and Ell Armstrong had 15.
Kopp cited strong rebounding
and fine bench play as keys to tlie
win. "We had more size," said
Albany's Mike Gatlo drives for basket in Dunes' 7(1-6.1 home victory Kopp. "If wc can gel the rebounds,
against Hnmillon Tuesday night.(IMiolo: Alan Ctilciu)
we can run well — and we goi the
rebounds." The running game was
important, at CSR was weary in the
final half. Offensive play improved
vastly from Tuesday's rusty performance, as Albany clicked for the
high score of the season.
T u e s d a y , sloppy
characterized both sides, as an excessive amount of passes were either
thrown out of bounds or into the
arms of opponents. Four turnovers
were committed before the first 90
seconds ticked off the clock, and
there wasn't a bucket until albany
guard Greg Watson put one in from
close after 2:30. The Danes had
worked the lead up to 13 points
(24-11) with 7:00 remaining in the
first hald, but the Continentals ripped off a 10-0 spree in the next three
minutes, and oulscorcd Albany

three occasions, they almost gave
the ballgame away near the end as
Albany failed to hit on any of nine
one-on-one foul situations in the
final three minutes, enabling the
tenacious visitors to close the gap.
Albany head J.V. basketball
coach Steve Kopp cited several
reasons for his squad's sloppy play,
including the long layoff and the
fact that, in the four days of practice, the team was down to eight or
nine men due to health reasons and
was inable to run a full-court scrimmage. Nonetheless, he was pleased
with the game. "It's nice to get that
type of play out of our system,"
said Kopp.
Defense was the key, as a tight
Albany zone, although allowing

The remainder of the game was
basically uneventful, as the teams
played inorc-or-less run and gun,
exchanging offensive foul-ups as
well as baskets. Albany goi the lead

never relinquished It. Although the

Ram's Deep Men Face Test;
Must Stop Swann And Co.
you defend against Lynn Swann
arid a John Stallworth? Simple,"
says Dave Elmendorf. "You do it
with a Pat Thomas and a Rod
Perry." That may well be the most
critical matchup in Sunday's Super
Bowl game, with Thomas and
Perry, the Los Angeles Rams' cornerbacks, trying to muzzle the Pittsburgh Stcclcrs' terrifying tandem
of deep threats.
No other team has really been
able to stifle both wide receivers.
Double-covering one meant handing Pittsburgh quarterback Terry
Bradshaw an engraved invitation to
exploit the other.
"But no other team has two cornerbacks that are as capable as
o u r s , " Elmendorf, the Rams'
strong safety, said Wednesday
before the team began what Coach
Ray Malavasi described as its two
hardest days of workouts.
"When you've got guys who are
as capable as Rod and Pat and
you're matching them up against
Stallworth and Swann, you've got
two natural battles there — and I
think that in the past we've won the
battles," said Elmendorf, reflecting
on the Rams' 10-7 victory over.
Steelers during the 1978 season. In
that game, Pittsburgh's two wide
receivers were limited to just 69
yards on five receptions.
"We'll be up in their faces just
about all day," said Thomas, who
missed half the season with a knee
injury and returned as a starter in
the Rams' 9-0 shutout of Tampa
Bay in the National Conference
championship game.
Swann's biggest asset, Thomas
said, is his concentration. "The guy
can catch a needle in the dark — he
can catch anything," he said. "If
the ball hits his hands, he's got it.
That doesn't intimidate me at all —
but I think we can do a few things
to intimidate him . . . 1 think it's
my job to destroy the will of the
receiver. Swann is a man; he's
human. And you can destroy his
.will to catch the ball."
Spikers Look To Rebuild;
Team Hurt By Graduation
by Marc Ilnspel
As coach Ted Earl and the
Albany State men's volleyball team
look ahead to the upcoming season,
the squad's fate seems questionable. The loss of four graduated
seniors and other transfers has left
the present team with only a thin
nucleus of experience, and although
this year's squad is capable of surprises, Earl believes this season will
be essentially one of rebuilding
The 1979 Dane volleyball team
finished its season with a deceiving i
13-10 record, deceiving because six
of the ten losses was good enough
for a first place tie with Cornell in
Division III of the Eastern Collegiate Volleyball League. In the
tiebreaker with Cornell to determine which team would receive the
playoff spot, Albany lost in heartbreaking style, 16-14, 15-10 and
15-13. This match was to be the last
one played for graduating seniors
Andy Kinstler, John Shaw, John
Virgo and Kirk Andrews and a few
transfers who had to leave because
of financial and academic reasons.
Thus, only six of last year's starters
have returned this season: seniors

on vacation."
j Hamilton chipped away at the
Dane lead by employing a 1-3-1 trap,
defense which forced Albany into
II turnovers in the second half.
Orimmer cul the deficit 10 10 with a
lay in, followed immediately by a
steal and another easy hoop by the
C o n t i n e n t a l ' s " c e n t e r . After
giveaways by guards Rob C'lune and
Winston Royal, who had an off

four points, Hamilton's ['rank Garcia hit one free throw, Robinson
made a tremendous block on a
Stanish drive, and Ron Evans1 two
foul shots cut the Albany lead to
64-59 with 1:40 remaining.
"1 was disappointed thai we let
thai nice lead get away," said
Sauers. "Pari of ii was due to
smarl, aggressive play by Hamilton,
but we didn't handle their pressure \
as well as 1 thought we would."
"I don'l think we played very
well," added Hamilton coach Tom
Murphy. "We had loo many turnovers. I think when I look at the
charts I'll be sick. livery lime wi
needed a basket we turned the ball
over. But we came back in the last
two and one half minutes of the
game, and that was encouraging."
Aflcr a timeout with 1:29 left, the
Danes pul Hamilton out of reach,
as Royal's halfcourl pass found
Stanish alone for a lay up, Jones
scored on his jam, and Jednak and
Stanish hit free throws, Evans' uncontested basket at the buzzer made
ihe final score appear closer than
the contest actually was.
"We arc a young team, and we
will be better," Murphy commented. "But it would have been
nice to gel a win over a good club,
and these guys are a good club."
With seven underclassmen on
their rosier, Hamilton is a team of
the future, while Ihe Danes, off to

Overtime Thriller
Enthusiastic Crowd
by Paul Schwartz
Even the build-up could not compare to the 45 minutes of tense,
dramatic basketball displayed at

night. The two top ranked Division

squared off in a battle for eastern
supremacy. At the final buzzer,
Potsdam remained on top, but just
barely, edging the Danes 70-68 in
Potsdam, the third ranked Division III team in the nation, improved their unblemished record to 11-0,
and overcame the jinx that
Albany's home court had on them.
In gaining their first-ever victory in
University Gym, the Bears also

first KUNYAC loss of the season,
and dropped the Danes record to

said Potsdam coach Jerry Welsh.
"We were also fortunate lo only be

because Albany c o m p l e t e l y
outplayed us. Albany's got a great
team and a great coach, and it's
tought to beat them anywhere— on
their court or ours. It was an important win for us."
Rob Clunc's two free throws with
1:17 remaining in regulation gave
the Danes a 66-64 lead, but Scott
Franko's . short jumper just 12
seconds later, brought Potsdam
even. A'hany held for the last shot,
but Chine's side jumpshot with four
seconds left was short, and bounced
just off the rim.
Potsdam's Derrick Rowland
fouled Dane center Kelvin Jones
with four minutes left in the overtime period, and Jones connected
on two pressure-packed free throws
to give Albany a 68-66 lead.
Rowland's one handed dunk tied
the score at 68-68, and the Danes
took control with 3:30 remaining.
Albany coach Dick Saucrs instructed his squad to stall for the
last shot, but after running all but
13 seconds off the clock, Dane forward Pete Slanish drove to the
basket, was fouled, and stepped to
the foul line. Stanish missed the free
throw, though, and Potsdam hurried the ball upcourt. With four
seconds left, Bear forward Maurice
Woods connected on a short
juniper to give Potsdam the lead,
70-68. After two Albany time outs,
Stanish's inbounds pass was stolen
by guard Ed Jachim, and the
Potsdam eclcbratfon began.
"We had our chance," Sauers
said. "If we hit that last shot in
regulation, we win the game. Chine

were trying to play for the last shot.

to the Danes. But this season, the

with nothing but success, starting
off the new decade by winning the

record to 9-1, their best start since
With a number of changes from
last year's squad, Albany basketball
coach Dick Saucrs figured his team
would need lime lo gel together.
This has not been necessary,
though, and even Sauers did not expect such a quick start.
"I'm very surprised," Sauers
said, "I looked al our schedule —
at the teams we had to play, and 1
couldn't see how we would be 9-1 at
this point. But this team has surprised me, and they are still surprising me. Actually, in our first ten
games, we didn't have a gpod

shown poise, expecially al the end
of games,"
Albany successfully defended
their Capital District title by
edging Union on January 5th,
57-55 and downing Tufts 82-71..
The first round matchup turned out
to be a traditional Albany-Union
game — close, low scoring, and aggressive defense by both teams. The
Danes managed to take a 35-33 lead
at halflime, despite losing center
Kelvin Jones, who got Into immediate foul trouble and eventually
fouled out early in the second half.
Guard Winston Royal paced the
Danes with 16 points and five
assists, and forward Pete Slanish
came of the bench to hii all five of
his shots and contributed 13 points.
Both Albany players were selected

When he caught the ball in his
own backcourt, Kelvin Jones knew
what was about to happen. "It's
what I was thinking about," he said
afterwards. "When 1 looked up and
saw the basket at the other end, the
only think I thought of was throwing it down."
One other person in University

basket resulted in six of his 13 total

through a scoreless 30 minutes in

negative lump sum that reduced SUNY's positions by
1,125 and appropriations by a gross total of ?12.3 million
serves to bring the gap between authorizations and expenditures to a more realistic level.
Allocation of the position and appropriation reduction
will be primarily the responsibility of the Trustees of the
State University, who will prepare and submit an
allocation plan to the Division of the Budget.
The personnel portion of the reduction, a total of
approximately S9.7 million, is actually a net amount
which reflects the fiscal effect of abolishing 1,125
positions, offset by significant savings relief. A substantial portion of this relief will be allocated to Stony Brook
to permit the phased opening of the University Hospital.
