Carey Slashes SUNY Budget
$26 Million Cutback Proposed
by Mlchclc Israel
Massive cutbacks in SUNY expenditures have been proposed by
Governor Hugh Carey in his
1980-81 Executive Budget. Stale
fiscal plans call for the worst financial setback to hit SUNY since Ihc
early 70s. •
Carey has called for a
$12,300,000 base reduction In
SUNY expenditures, which will
result in the elimination of 1,125
In addition, Carey has further
proposed to cut the budget by $14
million for the purpose of reexamining current staff and programs.
The proposed budget is based on
a SUNY-wlde enrollment level of
161,976 full-time students, a
decrease of about 1,500 students
from the 1979-80 budgcl levels, according to Executive Budget
According to SUNYA Finance

The Albany State men's swim
team rebounded in superb fashion
from the winter break to defeat
Bridgewater State College and a
"quality" Division I University of
Vermont on Saturday.
In the tri-meet, the Danes
defeated Bridgewater by a lopsided
92-18 score and thwarted Vermont
66-47. Vermont placed third overall

"The majority of the swimmers
stayed active over vacation. When
they got back we worked hard right
away," commented Albany men's
swimming coach Ron White
"In the solid week of practice
that we had to tune-up for this
meel, we had intense workouts
comprised of three hours of swimming each day and weight training
three limes last week," mentioned
swimmer Tom Roberts.
Opening up the festivities was the
400 yard medley relay which was
the first of a slew of records that
were broken. A medley team of
Steve Bonawitz, Joe Shore, Frank
Heter and Dave Zybala outdistanced the Vermont squad by over eight
seconds in 3:47.6. The winning time
was good enough to crush RPI's
oldstanding pool record of 3:49.3.
Heter mentioned that "this time is
in range of qualifying for the nationals in the event."
The 1000 yard freestyle placed
Albany second and third, with John
Doerner and Steve Ellenberg
finishing behind Vermont's firstplace finisher Steve Levy.
Kevin Ahcrn broke his own pool
record in the 200 yard freestyle;
placing first in the event with a
1:51.3-1.1 seconds belter than his
1979 record. "I felt real good. I hit
my turns real well along with a good
start. We worked out pretty hard
over vacation and the times showed
real well," Ahcrn said.
Capping off another first-place
finish was Roberts, who out-swam
the rest of the field with a 23.6 in
Ihc 50 yd. freestyle. "The race went
well. We blew them away.
Although I won the race, it was still
a full second off my best time in the
event," stated Roberts.
The Danes followed-up with a
first and second place finish in the
200 yard individual medley. Shore
took high honors in 2:07.76, edging
out teammate Heter. "It was a real
tough race wilh great dual competition between Joe and 1 for

C a l i f o r n i a G o v e r n o r and
presidential hopeful Edmund G.
"Jerry" Brown drew a standingroom-only crowd in SUNYA's
Campus Center ballroom Tuesday.
In the presentation, co-sponsored
by SUNYA's Poiilical Science
Department and Political Science
Association, Brown criticized the
Carter administration and outlined
his policies for change.
Brown began by discussing the
1980 presidential campaign, which
he described as a "process that is
progressively deteriorating."
He called upon students to form
a "new political coalition" to
"bring new values into the
(poiilical) process." Brown then
responded to complaints about
local election laws which do not
allow students to vote as Albany
residents. He called the laws
"inefficient" and said students
"better start the revolution now."
Unemployment, Missiles, Oil
Brown emphasized the importance of domestic problems, which
lie feels should play a larger role in
the presidential campaign than they
presently do, He pointed out
unemployment as one of our largest
domestic problems, proposing a
program of environmental conservation which would involve
"putting Americans to work" in a
way that "doesn't wreck the environment."
Discussing the federal defense
budget, Brown criticized Carter's
proposal lo spend $50 million on
the MX missile system. "$50
million in mass transit for people is
much more iniporlraut than spending $50 million on a racetrack for
200 nuclear warheads," he said.
Brown outlined a policy of calling on our allies, singling out Germany and Japan, lo pay for a larger
share of American-provided
defense. He suggested that these
funds be used in the Mid-Easl and
lo "rebuild at home."
Under a Brown presidency, he
said, gasoline rationing would be

Lighter Side of Politics
WASHINGTON (AP) Opponents of Pres. Carter's plan to
register draft-age youths vowed Thursday to "picket,
teach-in, protest and demonstrate" in every major city, but
acknowledged they will have a hard time stopping the program. As student groups and others mapped campaigns to
rally public opinion against registration, several members
i of Congress denounced Carter's action and promised to try
to block it. One idea being examined is an attempt to deny
the administration the money it would need to take the
Selective Service System out of mothballs, where it has been
since 1975 when President Gerald Ford halted registration.
. Carter already has authority under his
executive powers to order registration. Congress also would
have to change Selective Service laws if Carter decided to
compel women as well as men to register. In his Stale of the
Union address Wednesday, in which he announced plans to
begin registration for the draft, Carter did not say whether
he intended to register women. Administration officials
have said that is an open question. The president already
has strong backing on rcgistration-from key congressional
leaders, including Scnale Democratic leader Robert Byrd
and House Speaker Thomas P. O'Neill, and it appears now
thai his plan would be approved. House Republican Leader
John Rhodes of Arizona said Carlcr has overwhelming support among Republicans on the issue and that he sees no effective opposition lo it from any quarter. Even so,
representatives of various groups opposing registration
went 10 Capilol Hill and declared they would fight an admillcdly uphill battle. Most of the spokesmen predicted
thai registration would lead loadrafl. In his speech, Carler
said he hoped a drafl will not be necessary but that "we
musi be prepared for that possibility."
Carter to Arm China
WASHINGTON (AP) The Carler administration has
decided to sell military arms lo China lo help deter Soviet
aggression, the chairman of a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee said today. Rep. Lester L. Wolff (D-N.Y.),
chairman of the Asian and Pacific Affairs subcommittee,
said the formal announcement would be made by the While
House later in the day. In a brief floor speech, Wolff told
the House: "There will be an announcement within hours
that military sales to the People's Republic of China will be
authorized." Wolff said he personally opposes such a
move. "This is a great departure from previous relations
with lhat country," he said. "I must say thai I strongly oppose this idea until such lime as we know what we are going
to get in return from the People's Republic of China."
England Supports U.S. Stand
LONDON (AP) British Foreign Secretary Lord Carrington
announced a tough package of anti-Soviet measures today
to protest Moscow's military intervention in Afghanistan.
They included suspension of high-level and ministerial contacts. The British government also voiced full support for
the main goals in the U.S.-Soviet clash over Afghanistan as
defined by President Carter in his Stale of Ihe Union address to Congress. Other moves announced by Carrington
in Parliament included cancellation of military exchanges
between Britain and the Soviets and an increase in the
number of broadcasts beamed into the Soviet Union and
Afghanistan by the British Broadcasting Corp. But Carrington said: "1 don't think the situation at (he moment
makes it necessary lo reintroduce conscription or anything
of that kind." Britain abolished military conscription in
1960 and now relies entirely on volunteers to man ils forces.
Toss Criticizes U.S. Position
MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet news agency Tass today
described as absurd President Carter's claim in his Stale of
the Union message thai Ihe Persian Gulf area is a sphere of
vilal interest to Ihe United States. In a Washingtondatclined dispatch, the news agency said Carler emphasized
the claims of ihe U.S. administration to the "right" to interfere in the internal affairs of other stales which possess
raw materials or lie on oil-supply routes. Tass said Carler
arbitrarily proclaimed the Persian Gulf area as a sphere of
vital interest. He made no secret, the news agency said, that
"at the ba.iis of the false thesis of the 'vilal interests' of the
USA in ihe Persian Gulf lies a desire lo keep Ihe dominant
position of American monopolies in the region." "Carler
alleged that there exists some 'threat' lo the 'free movement
of Middle East oil,' a threat allegedly coming from Ihe
Soviet Union," Tass said. "The absurdity of Washington
claims that the Persian Gulf area is a sphere of U.S. 'vilal
Interests' is an axiom which needs no proof and which is expecially obvious to the peoples of the region or countries lying in immediate proximity to it," the Soviet news agency

Quake Rocks San Francisco
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) A powerful earthquake shook a
large area of Northern California on Thursday, swaying
buildings in downtown San Francisco. Initial reports said it
apparently caused no major damage. The National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colo., said
preliminary readings about the quake registered from 5.2 lo
5.5 on the Richtcr scale. A quake with a reading of 5 is
capable of doing considerable damage. But Jim Watkins,
chief of the planning division for the state Office of
Emergency Services in Sacramento, said preliminary
reports indicated there was no damage. "We felt it here in
Sacramento," Walkins said. "It shook a lot of plants, and
it stood me up as I was sitting in my chair." Sacramento is
100 miles east of San Francisco. The quake, which occured

Wellington Buses Rerouted in Safety Move

In an attempt to protect students

Plant Director Dennis Stevens.
According to SUNYA Supervisor
of Vehicle Operations Bill Gathcn,
Ihe Wellington's new route went into effect on January 14. The

According to Stevens, the bus

a left on Quail Street, and a right
back lo Washington Avenue to continue ils regular route,
"Both the Wellington and Alumni buses will make slops at any corner upon request," he added, "but
no other changes in the lime
schedule or route have been made."
"The small buses have to be used
on this Ontario-Quail loop because
the larger buses cannot make the

Gathen anticipates no problems
maintaining this loop. He said,

meeting of the President's Task
Force on Women's Safely. The task
force, an advisory group created by
SUNYA P r e s i d e n t
O'Lcary, was created in response to
the recent rash of assaults in the
Pine Hills area.
of administrators and students, addresses the growing concerns of
women's safety on and off the cam-
pus. Numerous projects are currently being undertaken
Task Force Goals
The installation of an on-campus
emergency telephone system, providing student patrols and escorts,
and training women in self defense
are some of the group's goals, according to Task Force member
Janice Fine.
The task force is responsible for
the improved lighting conditions on
Partridge and Ontario Streets. Al a
meeting last semester a proposal for
adequate lighting in the downtown
area was made, Stevens said.
During the recess, through the
combined efforts of the City,
Niagara-Mohawk and Stevens,
sodium vapor lights were installed.
"This should make the, area more
secure," said Stevens.
Warm Winter Delays Ice Rink
by Rich Krasluw
Unusually warm wcaihcr and
, construction difficulties have
delayed completion of SUNYA's
first on-campus ice skating rink.
According lo an SA spokesman,
Iherc is an 80 pel. chance that the
rink located on ihe east side of the
Phys. Ed. building will not
materialize. He cilcd "basic Incompetence" on the part of the
plain administration as a reason the
rink may remain inoperable. "They
have made something thai just
won't work," he added.
The cost of the rink, in ils unfinished stages, is in an estimated
range or $1000-$6000, said the SA
source. However, according lo
Physical Plant Director Dennis
Stevens, the rink was built al no administrative cost.
Freeze Needed
A major obstacle hailing rink
completion was created when
builders dug loo deep and reached
sand, which may have attributed to
the prevention of Ihe rink's freezing
earlier Ihis year.
Atmospheric Department Chair
Harry Hamilton said, "Since heat
flows up from the ground, il would
have been more practical had ihcy
dug less deeply."
Grounds Foreman Fred Fortuin
admitted he is "no expert.-'-' He said
that he never built an ice skating
rink before, but fell Ihe project
would have been a success had
weal her conditions been cold
enough to permit freezing. Fortuin
added Ihal he did uol know Ihe cost
of Ihe project, but estimated that
the crew worked several days on
completing il. In Fortuln's opinion,
the project is complete.
Dean for Student Affairs, Neil
Brown said "The famous Albany
weather gave us warm, nearly
balmy weal her which acleil against
formation of ice in the rink."
Brown added lhat, "a period of
cold weather (several days of 10-20
degree, lor example) would be sufficient to make the rink feasible for
the winter weekend." Brown feels
the project was not yet a success,
and he could not offer an estimate
as to the eventual cost to the administration.
Plain Superintendent Ira Devoe
said, "The skating rink could be a
howling success if the weather
cooperates." Devoe added thai
"Ihe ultimate success of the rink
will depend upon Ihe students' reaction."
Hamilton said, "Based on
Albany climatology, it is doubtful
that the rink could be used during
any given winter." Me added that,
"there is never a large period where
ihe rink could be self-maintained."
Hamilton noted that this condition exists for any man-made rink
in ihe area. With regard to our
unusually mild winter, Hamilton
feels the rink could be maintained
for short periods of time.
Best Site
The ice skating rink has been
under SA consideration Tor eight
years, during which alternate sites
were discussed. The fountain was
one consideration but was discounted because of the possibility
of concrete cracking,
A patch of land near the Biology
Building was also considered as a

According to Fortuin, future
plans lor Ihe present silc Include
sloping il gradually and seeding it
for the spring in hopes lo Iry again
next winter. He did not feel this
would impose any additional cost.
Stevens said Ihe plant department
absorbed the entire cost of Ihe project "by diverting manpower which
was not needed because of the lack
of snow.
"If there had been snow, "he added, "the project would never have
been considered."

Transfer Now in Senate Hands
First published about six years
ago as an SA project, ACT was
discontinued in 1976. SA made
another attempt at the booklet a
year and three months ago, and has
since come out with two publications. A third publication is currently in the works.
In order for ACT to become
university-wide, it must be recommended by the Educational Policy
Council of the University Senate.
The recommendation would then
go to SUNYA President Vincent
O'Leary, who is charged with a
final decision.

to be accepted as a university-wide
method of evaluation, individual
departments submit their cvalualions for publication.

The word rolls off the tongue like a piece of

women flailing students with "Sorry, it's

be simplified? Yes, yes, I know, "we're
working on streamlining the system night and

If we can send men lo the moon, dock

of registration can be devised. Well, what
should be done?
How about forcing administrators to draw

Dear Governor Carey:
I am a student at SUNY Pittsburgh, and
am sure that you've heard the quote "A mind
is a terrible thing to waste" and quile agree to
do so would indeed be an atrocity.
I strongly feel that you are wasting hundreds of minds through your proposed
budgetary cuts, especially those in higher
education. Who will have the knowledge to
carry on where you and other great leaders
leave off? If your cuts do see implementation, a number so insignificant as to be able
to count them on one's own hands will resull
over the next few years. This will mean a virtual hall of our economy, advancements in
technology, increase in the standard of living,
and ihc learning process of our generation
and those that follow.
I for one would not relish ihc thought thai

obligation, in this frigid little town, our only solace is to
exercise our imagination and hear the surf roll up at
Malibu, feel the sun seep into our bronzing skin in Palm

California has long been looked toward as the outer
perimeter of society--a fringe area between the bored but
secure world we try to bury ourselves in and the less certain, unrestricted, amoral, and ultimately even more bor

of all the crazlness that goes along with It. The
unity created in the air, though often
generated by hallucinogens, could be felt even
without a drug. One could just walk through
the crowd feeling Ihe energy.
As of this very moment, for me at least,
walking Into a Dead concert, anywhere, feels
like . . . going home (no violins, please).
Familiar faces can be seen everywhere. I've
often walked through a crowd trying to match
faces from past concerts. It's sort of like playing Name That Face . . .

long hauls might appear to be more of a
burden than a joy, I can't really agree
(usually). Getting there Is half the fun. In fact,
truckln' to a Dead show seams to be what It's
all about — hitting ihe open road for a great

midwesterners . . . The network Is just . . i
amazing. Anywhere and everywhere new
friends are found — ones you know you won't
see again, until maybe you make It back to
Buttfuck, USA for another show.
Attempting to catch more than one or two
shows on a given tour can have its drawbacks
too. The Dead, you see, are always touring.
Unlike any other band that's ever been, they
never really take a break. And because they
don't do a "tour", their shows are varied,
though sometimes not varied enough. This is
quite unlike any other major band which
would do the same show continually
throughout their lour. School, II seems, is
usually In session when there is a tour going
on. The lack of money also can stifle Ihe attempt of seeing more than a few shows . . .
nonetheless, Ihe music never stops and very
often giving up a show 400 miles away may
enable you to catch two within one hour of
each other.
Whatever . . . As I said, I traveled this past
vacation to the other coast to see the beautiful

Neither let me down. The sun shlned for most

the shows were amazing with some surprises

The preceding notes were scribbled on the
back of a little pamphlet I had been carrying
around. The pamphlet had been given to me
by one of the aforementioned "street acts" In
Berkeley, and It read "May the 70s rot In
peace! In the 80s the Empire's gonna shake,
rattle 'n roll! The pamphlet foretold of a night
of iconoclastic rock'n roll ("Rock'n Revolt")
and was sponsored, In part, by the local Communist party. The starring acts were bands
called Prairie Fire and the States, acts that
promised to "bring d o w n " the Red Flag
theater, "the house" as It were, in a gala New
Year's Eve bash on Chestnut Street In San
Francisco's North Beach area.
My whole state of mind had been altered in
that long-needed vacation. Berkeley Is so
stimulating that you would have to go quite
out of your way to be bored. Even shopping
for food Is an experience, being that there still
exists an older, more conservative element In
Berkeley; those who, Incredibly, still frown
and won't look In the eyes of the "hippies"
who share the frozen food aisles with them.
Vegetarian restaurants abound as do smalllime jewelers and leather craftsmen who sell
their wares out on the street. There are
violinists playing Beethoven, poets chanting,
oracles and modern-day soothsayers trying to
raise someone's consciousness for maybe a
quarter. The Shakespeare Book Shop on
Telegraph Is full of used classics that sell for as
low as a dollar. A glimpse In the university
bookstore reveals a liberalized curriculum; leftist philosophy and revolutionary economics.
Berkeley was the home of Jerry Rubin and
Country Joe, Mario Savo and Herbert Marcuse. Drugs are still abundant and the population is still young; many of them second

equally steep and just as hilly, but one look
down Lombaro Street and you have to marvel
at the fact that someone decided to build a city
here! Moreover, one can find Moonies, LSD,
and strong gay communities In many
American cities nowadays, but this is where il
all started. New Years' Eve was a testament lo
the festive sensibilities of San Francisco. In
North Beach a roadblock had been set up at
the corner of Columbus and Broadway where
staggered and milled about, the largest mass
of Inebriated humanity I'd witnessed since the
Mardl Gras. Similar to the Mardl Gras and the
annual Times Square ritual, social convention
had been cast aside for an orgy of indulgence
and gratification. 1 can't desert the subject of
New Year's Eve without mentioning the Tom
McFarland Band, a local act that played some
of the best, hard-ass rock 'n roll in a little club
called the Sacramento. The club Is perched
atop an incline on Green Street and is painted
with aesthetically pleasing colors and designs.
To avoid paying the $2.00 cover charge I
stood outside the club with a friend and sonicstrangers, sharing a joint and I remember
thinking that this was a magical moment, eternally etched In my subconscious, to be recounted many times In the future. Another
peculiar aspect of that evening was that the
Jefferson Starship were playing in a club on
Columbus Ave. We walked by, in fact, as they
were doing "Jane" and could've gained entry
for only $25 a head. A t that very moment, the
Grateful Dead were playing in Oakland. There
must've been a real familial feeling that night in
the Bay area.
In the Halght Ashbury district at the foot of
Golden Gate Park, one can find something of
a renaissance taking place. Victorian mansions
that housed and even helped kindle the first
spark of the hippie "movement" in the middle
60s are being renovated and repainted in the
same loud colors that characterized those embryonic day-glo years. Unfortunately, the promise of a new life and a new start attracted not
only adventurous free spirits and naive kids,
but also those looking for a shortsighted way
out of Ihe confines of social responsibility.
Subsequently, the Halght Is now rife with
drifters, beggars, drunks, real down-andoutters becoming gray at the temples. It seems
that the Halght had been an ordinary
neighborhood prior lo the "Awakening", and;
resumed lhal status shortly after. In fact, the
area around Halght and Market streets Is a
rough section of town. Bui in contrast to even
Iwo years ago, when I first visited the area,
there appears lo be revitalized interest in
boosting the spiritual awareness of the
neighborhood. The Halght Street bookstore Is
a nice, homey place to browse and nearby Is
Vivaldi's wherein Is served superb pizza at a
reasonable price and the best jukebox you'll
ever find.
O n the fifth day of our sojourn, we decided
to rent a car. Our first stop, upon leaving
Berkeley, was to cross the Golden Gate
Bridge (which is in fact orange) into Sausallto,
the beautiful little island that is usually Included
In the ferry ride from the Wharf to Alcatraz and
Marin County. Sausallto Is, also, somewhat
commercialized, but it still Is the residence of
an esoteric colony of artists and philosophers
(Alan Watts among them) whose presence undoubtedly contributes to the clear and good
feeling one gets when walking those roads that
spiral continually upward. From Sausallto we
drove south on Pacific Coast Highway N o . 1
and camped on a beach whose name was
unknown to us — this spontaneous and arbitrary decision to compenste, perhaps, for the
entirely bourgeois feeling of riding in a new
automobile. There is nothing like'the sunrise
over the ocean, and soon we were off the Big
Sur, my weak constilulion being overtaken
with nausea as we twisted and turned down
the tumultuous Pacific coast. Big Sur Is
something of a fairyland, Immortalized In pan
by Jack Kerouac and Richard Brautigan.
Here, now, let my notes tell It:
Big Sur, Jan. 4, 1980
Having just awoke after a cold night inside a
"sand-cave", the gulls are coming In, circling,
looking for breakfast. A black goose struggles
for its life. There are no humans in the
panorama. From a distance, these divinely
conceived caves appear as brown dots along
the blue water. Up close, purple silt and white
gull entrails paint the strangely sculpted rock
smooth impressions that look like smiles and
other facial mannerisms. The rocks we stood
on were centuries in the making, the tenuous
water slaps down o n the surface, hewing a
coarse edge, rounding out an angle. There's
something very uniform in the design.
There Is no township or settlement of Big
Sur, per se. There are houses, very geometric,
that nestle In the mountains, lodges and commercial outposts accompany the redwoods all
along Highway I. The weather Is at best indecisive. From atop the mountains, fresh
water trickles down, carving Its own passage In
the sand, emptying In the sally ocean. There
Southern California is an entirely different
story. From the cliche of the uninhibited and
contemplative granola freaks of the north, we
headed south and the fast-paced, open-shirt,
cocaine aura seemed to enguif us iinme palely
Hollywood Boulevard, the thoroughfare
celebrated by the Kinks and others, Is the embodiment of all that Is affected and contrived
and Is an Integral pari of one of the most toxic
and spiritually bankrupt settlements in the
world — Los Angeles. Down the boulevard,
tourists from all over the country eye key
places — Grauman's Chinese Theater for Instance, and are careful not to be so gauche as
to look down at the sidewalk momentoes
commemorating every entertainer with Ihe
money or the Influence to be Immortalized
on a umcrete slab. Women try to be
glamorous, sucking In their pale cheeks just
slightly so as to appear consumptive and
bored, while men shake their asses and
cultivate a delicate appearance because these
days it's very In to be effeminate. The stars,
not the entertainers, but the actual concrete
pentangles, are about three by four feet In
area. No mention Is made of the highlighted
star's particular forte, nor are any vital statistics
such as blrthdate Included. Only the names
are given, accompanied by one of the four
symbols In a code designed to underscore that
star's field of entertainment — e.g. a movie
camera indicates that the person was a movie
star, a disc for the musicians, a microphone
for radio celebs, and a television screen with
two long antennae prominently perched on
top indicates a career in lunacy (pun intended

a television event and given Ms own little slab
of eternity). Some other unllkelys appear, Igor Stravinsky has a niche on the Boulevard as
do Ronald Reagan, Crosby, Stills, and Nash,
and Peter Frampton.
Los Angeles is a very large city in area. In
addition lo movies, it was once a major aircraft
manufacturing site. The city has no rapid transit system and the exhausl fumes emanating
from Ihe infinitesimal number of autos that
drive through L.A. every day are trapped In
the San Fernando valley by the warm
Southern California air, hence Ihe world
famous smog. Despite its great size, or possibly because of it, there Is no section In Los,
Angeles that can be casually walked through.
The city's claim to fame among the young is
Van Nuys Boulevard, a paradise for horny
adolescents (but then, what adolescent Isn't?).
Van Nuys, by Ihe way was totally deserted
when we toured through It, In the final
analysis, if such a thing is possible, Los
Angeles stands oul as a city without substance.
I wasn't aware of any unity of esprit de corps
(except during the playoffs). G'-""iour and
good weather are L.A.'s attributes. It should
be seen and discarded.
It rained during my entire hiatus In San
Diego. I was granted, however, one sunny
day to hitch from the beautiful city back to
L.A. for my flight home. As you proceed
south in California, Ihe population of Mexicans, many of them illegal aliens, thickens.
Bus drivers take pains warning passengers not
to smoke pot. Road signs become bilingual.
Outside San Diego live two high school friends
of mine. They took me to Jane's Country Kitchen where for $2.00 1 was treated to an
omelette so large I couldn't finish it.
There's C a l i f o r n i a for y o u , m i n u s
Disneyland which you all know about and
Yosemlte-Park, which we didn't see, unfortunately. It Is, as the Eagles have called it, the
Last Resort. Callfornlans must harbor feelings
of finality because after the West Coast, there's
no place to search for the American Dream.
California sets the trends. Who Isn't aware of

centers that have sprung up in California? . . .
not reflective of a "Me Decade" but the logical

start off the side with fine, driving guitar work
in the heavy metal vein.
"The Needle and the Damage Done," an
acoustic number written for Danny Whitten,
former lead guitarist of Crazy Horse, who died
of a heroin overdose, is a mournful anti-drug
song. Young warns the audience, " A junkie's
like a setting sun," and "there's a little bit in
everyone." The song does not come off topheavy, but it leaves the audience thinking,
which is evidence of Young's capacity as a
meaningful songwriter. 'Lotta Love," an easylistening middle-of-the-road song about
building a relationship, nnd "-Sedan Delivery,"
an interesting electric number which begins

doing, because once one accepts The Manhattan Transfer as presumptuous and the
epitome of 'over-done,' then one can a p preciate Graydon's complete adherence t o
that, and he has indeed provided the best,
most diverse, and fullest Transfer record yet.
The Manhattan Transfer Is one of those
hybrid groups that take two musical categories
and bring Ihem together. They enjoy adding
silly words to famous jazz and swing songs and
playing them with grand, new arrangements,
and the jazz ranges from Weather Reports'
1978 classic, "Blrdland," to 1938's, "Wacky
Dust," a tongue-in-cheek referral to the champagne of powdered drugs. There's a song
from 1959 about Insanity called, "Coo C o o
U," and the 1933 standard, "Body and Soul"
Is lyricized and revamped again, as Is a 1958
forgotten one called "Tickle Tickle."
In between these covers are two new songs by the
producer that stand out sorely and don't quite
cut tl next to the pre-1960 stuff. Disco even
made it onto the nostalgia group's LP, possibly
an interesting comment about its future. The
tune Is "Twilight Tone," an excellent
danceable disco gimmick that follows a
remake of "Twilight Zone," the classic T V
iheme by the score writer, Bernard Hermann.
The best shot of all though.isn't jazz or disco,
but a delightful remake of Tom Wait's,
"Foreign Affair," a sentimental song about
life's quest, and the challenge being the thrill
over the solution. It's the only song with lyrics
worth reading, but they're included for all of
ven several times during his career of a little

also involved. In addition, although Miss
Israel mentioned the SUNYA police as providing shuttles, she did not do justice to the
excellent service they provided.
At 1:15 a - m " Officer John Haner began
the shuttle at the Social Science bus stop.
Other officers began to follow suit, filling
SUNYA security cars with seven students at a
time. As passengers were dropped at their
final destinations more students were piled
into the cars to fill the spaces. This continued
throughout the early hours of the morning so
that no one was stranded. Although our
public safety department is far from perfect,
this is one case where credit is Ouc for a job
well done.

The Enemy is Here
Approximately 2500 years ago, man started a technological journey that took him
from the advances of the ancient Greeks to the creation of the atomic bomb. N o * , it
is 1980, and man refuses to believe that this technojourney is at its culmination, and
an entire new system of existence is in store for us.
People have become suddenly upset because President Carter has taken apparent
first measures towards possible war. Unfortunate as it may be, history has
demonstrated that war is a part of man, as it has never left him in his entire civilized
existence. One does not have to like war; one shouldn't. But for the last 4000 years,
there have been wars, and for the last 4000 years, people fought them with enthusiasm, an enthusiasm they had to muster because they were fighting to preserve
something they wanted to preserve.
The current world situation brings it all together, so predictably. Raving maniacs
screamed years ago that we were using up our resources too fast, polluting our environment too heavily, but the sane men in power chose to ignore the future and put
down the maniacs, and not il's loo late. You're worried about war? We've already
lost the war against cancer. We've won the war against nature — we've annihilated
Ihe " e n e m y . "
And as America fell so, so secure living on easy street in the wake of a World War
victory, seven completely crazy presidents dictated priorities that let weapon
development step up lo a degree where a situation has been created that is too late to
control. The atomic bomb is definitely in the wrong hands these days, as smaller
countries with unstable governments will soon have Ihc power to start World War
111. What happens when all of the Mid-East nations have it, when North African nations have il, when some crazy dictator uses it?
Thirty years of cold war escalation have gone by, and there had to be a cost.
We've sacrificed America al ihc cost of making it safe against communism. So this
time no one wants to fight, and we can't blame them, because there ain't nothin'
worlh preserving.
The war is at home, and if you want to be really patriotic, that's where you'll stay.
Are we going lo lei millions of Americans die for some oil fields that will be gone in
ten years anyway? If we elect leadership that continues on this destructive, inane
path, then our fate is scaled. Sitting back and letting government take care of
America is no longer acceptable, because government doesn't know what the hell
they're doing. And if we do sil back and let all of this happen, that will only prove
just how low the so-called leaders have pushed the morale of Americans.
Whether wc agree to register for the draft or nol is nol the issue. The issue is why
it's necessary, why we have no say in il, HOW W E CAN SET T H I S RUINED
Wc have given control of this world lo people who have subsequently created certain frightening inevitabilities. Many of those inevitabilities have already come (rue,
and Ihe worst of all, nuclear war, seems nearer than ever. This issue is not Iran, it's
not registration, il's not Afghanistan. It's all one big issue called survival, and we're
losing it fast.
We leave you with one thought as you head into your weekend, partying planned,
fun on the mind: Just what the hell will Monday bring?
Sec you in class, maybe.

The Albany State men's J.V.
basketball team, recovering from
the loss to local Union, extended
their home winning streak to seven
games Tuesday night by trampling
an extremely out-of-practicc
Oneonta squad 107-74 in University
Gym. The Danes went up in the
first five minutes, led by as many as
24 points near the end of the opening half, and prevented the Red
Dragons from ever really threatening throughout the contest.
Albany's record is now 7-2.
Defense was the name of the
game for tlie Danes. Even though
they yielded 74 points, tight
coverage enabled Albany to score at
a much quicker rale than their opposition. Sub Glen Phillips and
guard Greg Watson both hit for
their seasonal highs, and tied for
the game's scoring honors with 22
points each. Phillips also passed
well, serving up eight assists.
"We just played real good
defense," said Albany J.V. head
coach Steve Kopp. "It was our best
defense of the year, which gave us
many easy baskets."

resulting in the high score (the
Danes' second three-figure total of
the season). For Oneonta, Jim
Boland (15 points) and Guy Pepe
(10 points) were the only men who
scored in double figures.
Rounding out the Albany scoring, Mike Gaines and Dave Hardy
had 14 points, and Mike Gatto was
credited with 13. Hardy once again
was a force underneath, pulling
down ten rebounds, seven offensively.
Kopp noted that this Red Dragon
team (who beat Union earlier this
year) had returned to school Monday, and only practiced once since
December 14. The extremely long
layoff ending when it did had a
definite influence on Tuesday's
According to Oneonta J.V. head
coach Hal Chase, the visitors were
out of shape. He also stated that
two starters were missing due to injury and illness, but that this
Albany team "would beat us 99 out
of 100 times." Kopp tends to feel
differently: "I expect that game at
their place to be a lot closer than
this one. They're a lot better than
they were on Tuesday," said Kopp.
Onconta's record is now 3-4.
The Danes travel to RPI tomorrow to meet the Engineers. After
that, seven of the ten remaining
games will be played on the road.

DRAGON SLAYERS: Danes Whip Cortland, Oneonta
Draft Protestors Speak Out
Two SUNYAC Wins Leave
Albany 12-2; Utica Sat,
Over 150 Rally
by Paul Schwartz
CORTLAND — A disciplined, poised Albany State
basketball squad pooled all their diverse resources last
night, and they were enough to put away a determined
Cortland team, 76-67.
On offense, it was the trio of guard Winston Royal
(20 points) and forwards Ray Cesare and Pete Stanish
(18 points each) that provided the Danes with enough
firepower to stifle the rugged Red Dragons. On defense,
it was an aggressive Albany second half zone, coupled
with some wild late-minute shots by Cortland guard
Tom Baez (21 points), that allowed the Danes to pull
"This win puis us in a good spot," said Albany coach
Dick Sauers. "Our scoring was unbalanced for us, but
those guys happened lo have the shols. I'll take
whatever way wins."
Albany, now 12-2 overall and 4-1 in the SUNYAC,
led 40-35 at halftime, but after Cesare's juniper gave the
Danes a 48-41 advantage, Cortland reeled off six consecutive points, closing to 48-47. "They had the ball,
and they could've gone ahead," Sauers said. "They
didn't, and that was a psychological factor."
Guard Rob Clune found Stanish inside for a basket,
as the Danes opened up their largcsi lead, 64-51, with
7:20 remaining. Cortland closed the gap to 70-65 with
Gary Maltraw's short jumper, but Royal's burst up the
middle and Bacz's errant shot sealed the Albany victory.
On Tuesday, everything seemed
primed for an upset — all the classic

Over 150 people held a peaceful
dcmonsiration at noon Saturday to
protest President Carter's plan to
reinstate registration for the draft.
The protest, sponsored by the
Albany Peace Coalition, was held
in front of the Broadway Post Office in downtown Albany in reaction to Carter's State of the Union
address on Wednesday.
A petition condemning the draft
registration was signed by 125 people according lo Capital District
Ami-Nuclear Alliance representative John Cutro,
"We only had a couple of days lo
organize it. 1
thought the
demonstration was very successful," said Cuiro.
"The ongoing goal of the Albany
Peace Coalition will be to develop
widespread opposition to the draft
and to stimulate action among the
people who will be most affected,"
said a spokesperson for the Coalition, Pat Beetle.
Despite adverse weather conditions, the protestors carried signs,
sang peace songs and listened to a

Women Cagers Fall Short, 58-47
by Amy Kunlor
Despite a valiant second half
showing, the Albany State women's
basketball team dropped their fifth
game of the season, losing 58-47,
Monday night against Hamilton
College at University Gym.
Hamilton took an early lead, and
kept scoring on the Danes. By the
half, Hamilton led, 30-11, and an
"upset" rookie conch Amy Kidder
led her Albany team into the locker
room. "I wish we could have
knocked off lite first 20 minutes of
the game," she said, attributing the
19 point Dane deficit lo poor
general play.

outscored Hamilton, 36-27, in the
second half. According to
sophomore team captain Laurie
Briggs, "The second half was probably the best basketball we played
all year."
Freshman Luanne LaLonde attributed the fine Dane third and
fourth quarter play lo "aggression"
and performed to the term as she
led the team in scoring with 18
points, sinking 16 of them in the second half. Center freshman Theresa
Clarke rallied lor 11 points.
However, the Danes missed 12
foul shols in the game. "Charily
points," remarked Kidder.
With 2:23 remaining in the
match, Albany was lOpoinlsdown.
This was the closest they came lo
Hamilton since the first quarter.

two minutes, 18 seconds. Then,
Hamilton's Kalhy Corsi added one
on a foul shol and brought the final
score to 58-47, and brought the opponent's season record lo 5-2,
"We're a young team and we
have lo work with what we have,"
explained Briggs. Kidder spotted
sonic inconsistencies, even during
the second half, and pointed to the
lucking quality of Dane rebound
play. "But we haven't found any
consistent pattern of play yet," she
said, referring to the youth of her

He added thai "resisiing the

According to Coalition member
Rczsin Adams, Trimm was tried
and sentenced but escaped lo
Canada for five years, and came
back to the U.S. under the earned

Adams said, " W e oppose

"We applaud what Carter has

added thai just as Carter realized
that military force wouldn't have

She staled that the Peace Coalition believes that preparation for
