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

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,

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,

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.

"We're a young team and we

explained Briggs. Kidder spotted
sonic inconsistencies, even during
the second half, and pointed to the

According to Coalition member

Carey's School Aid Cuts Rejected
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) State Sen. John Marchi, chairma-,
of the Senate Finance Committee, said Monday that his
committee would reject Gov. Hugh Carey's proposal to cut
$47.6 million in state aid to 25 school districts for current
school year operations. "It Is an irresponsible proposal,"
said Marchi in remarks prepared for delivery before the
State Council of School Administrators. The Slatcn Island
Republican-Conservative said, n I t is akin to violating a
contractual obligation." If approved, Marchi said the
Carey proposal could cause "early closings of schools,
layoffs of teachers and other educational personnel; in
other words, a wholesale disruption of the public school
system in many parts of our state."
Reagan Wants Military Presence
Women Voters Seek Tax Breaks
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) The League of Women Voters proposed Monday that all homeowners be given permanent,
set breaks on properly taxes, to replace the haphazard and
irregular lax breaks which many now get. The league thus
became the most prominent lobbying group to endorse the
idea of classification assessments, as a way out of the
massive restructuring of the properly tax which threatens
homeowners across the stale in coming years. Gov. Hugh
Carey embraced a similar idea in his State-of-the-Slate
message on Jan. 9. But no such plan seems to have much
chance of enactment this year, an election year in which
legislators apparently want to stay as far as possible away
from the hot topic of properly taxes. At issue is a court ruling which may one day force all taxable properly in the
stale to be assessed al its full value — in the process doing
away with the huge irregularities in the way individual properties around the slate arc now assessed and taxed. Since
most of the irregularities now work to the advantage of
some homeowners, a switch to full value is expected to
result in higher property taxes for most businesses.
FLORENCE, S.C. (AP) Ronald Reagan called on Thursday for an American presence in Pakistan, saying President
Carter deceived people with his vow to confront Soviet expansion in Southwest Asia. "We have every reason to be
there" to prevent further Soviet moves in the Persian Gulf
region, the former California governor said in a campaign
appearance. Asked whether he was advocating the stationing of U.S. military forces in Pakistan, Reagan replied that
he preferred not to be specific. He said he would have more
to say on Pakistan in the next two weeks. Reagan also urged establishment of air and naval bases in the Middle East,
East Africa and Southwest Asia. "We are in a power poker
game with the Soviet Union," said Reagan, who is seeking
the Republican presidential nomination. "Grain embargoes and threats to refuse to attend the Olympics are not
responsive to the Soviet call of our hand. Reagan accused
Carter of having deceived the public by raising hopes that
the Iranians may work with the United States to resist the
Soviets. He also said Carter also decicved Americans by
vowing initially not to accept Soviet troops in Cuba and
then acquiescing to their presence.
Reagan harshly criticized Carter's State of the Union address as a weak, rhetprical response to the Soviet movcinto
Carter Budget To Spark Defense
WASHINGTON (AP) The Carter administration, mindful
of the Soviet intervention in Afghanistan, made clear
Thursday it is willing to sell military equipment to
China—excluding weapons. Pentagon officials revealed
that Defense Secretary Harold Brown, during his recent
visit to Peking, told Chinese officials the United States is
"prepared to consider on a case-by-case basis" the sale of
some equuipment which could be turned to military use.
Defense Department officials, who asked not to be identified, said negotiations on such sales are only at
preliminary stages and actual shipments would be many
months away.Dcfcnse Department spokesman Thomas B.
Ross told reporters that military equipment considered
available to the Chinese could include trucks, communications gear and "certain types of early warning radar." "No
decision has been made as to what specific equipment might
be sold lo China, nor have the Chinese made specific requests," Ross said.
Group To Check

A newly formed group called the Advisory Bookstore
Committee has been established in order to deal with official university bookstore policies and involve students in
management decisions.
The seven-member committee, which will determine its
membership this week, has been created in response to last
semester's bookstore sit-in. The group will meet to "scl its
goals," form suggestions, and discuss ideas with Bookstore
Manager Gary Dean.
However, since the group has not yet been formed, Dean
has been responsible for choosing weekly sale items, a task
which will be carried out by the committee.
Certain non-book items have been chosen for sale purposes, and arc sold at a 10 percent discount. Last week, the
drugstore sold certain toiletries.

The Albany Circle K Club will observe Circle K Week
February 3-9, 1980, according to club president Lori Whitman.
Circle K is a coeducational collegiate service organization
sponsored by Kiwanis International with 12,000 members

new members; and educate the public about Circle K activities, including service projects.
Local Circle K Week activities will include: participation
in the First Annual SUNY Albany Winter Carnival, bringing a group of senior citizens from Teresian House to a performance at the Performing Arts Center on the SUNY campus, and possibly laking a group of orphaned children
skating at the skating rink by the Empire State Plaza.
The 1979-80 Circle K International theme is
"Caring...Life's Magic." During this period of time, Circle
K clubs, including the local group, will be organizing and
conducting service projects related to the theme objectives
of helping the lonely child, the abused child, and the child
in crisis.
Downtown Buses Reduced
Budgetary restrictions and driver illness have contributed
to a recent reduction in SUNYA bus service to Alumni

several drivers have been unable lo work because of illness.

Kennedy Calls for Changes
WASHINGTON (AP) Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, vowing
to stay the course in his campaign for the While House,
called today for a six-month freeze on wages and prices to
be followed by mandatory economic controls, He said a
United Nations commission should investigate Iran's
greivanccs against-the deposed shah. In a speech intended
to rekindle his faltering challenge to President Carter, Kennedy also called for a mandatory program of gasoline rationing that he said would cut American oil use by 1.7
million barrels a day, or 24 percent of current imports. On
foreign affairs, Kennedy said Carter's response to the
discovery of Russian troops in Cuba last year "may have
invited the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan." And while
calling for strengthened American naval and air forces in
the Persian Gulf region, Kennedy opposed the president's
proposal for renewed draft registration as a "step across
the thre. hhold of Cold War 11." The speech was prepared
for an audienco at Georgetown University here. Kennedy
had canceled four days of campaigning in New England to
etch more clearly his differences with the Carter administration.
Shah Spokesman Denies Arrest
PANAMA CITY, Panama (AP) A spokesman Tor the
deposed Shah of Iran said Thursday he is not under arrest
and strengthened security forces around his Contadora
Island retreat arc for his protection. Spokesman Mark
Morse said the shah is free to go wherever he wauls in
Panama and is free to enter or leave the country. Mohammad Rcza Pahlavi and his wife have been staying on Ihc
island since Dec. 15, when he left the United Stales following treatment for cancer and gallstones. Iran's foreign
minister, Sadegh Ghotbazadeh, repeated Thursday his contention that the shah was in effect under arrest. Ghotbzadeh told newsmen in Tehran the shah was not behind
bars because of illness, but his confinement at his reined
villa was the same as imprisonment. Ghotbzadeh called die
news conference to amplify his remark the day before that
the shah had been arrested by the government of Panama.
That remark caused confusion after Panamanian officials
denied the shah had been arrested.

Due to SA budget c'utsand charging lack of group accomplishment,
Off Campus Association (OCA)
Coordinator John Kennedy resigned January 25.
He ciied SA as unwilling lo act on
issues pertaining to the off campus
student. He fell SA was a main
block to OC'A's success, with issues
such as bus route changes and alternative housing options,
"It seems that we arc the only
folks who really lake our efforts to
heart. The university is slow 10 respond and virtually impossible to
push to reaction," Kennedy said.
SA is more interested in per
capita budgeting and memos than
with serving the real needs of its
electorate," he added.
Kennedy also stated his desire to
move on and "explore new op-
tions" as factors in his decision.
"My experience has been fantastic
and I'm sorry to leave. A lot of me
has been invested in projects since I
got involved in 1976," he said.
Roles, Services, Finances
OCA was started in 1975 to provide services and counseling for
students residing off campus. Prior
to that, there was no advisement for
students who chose to live off campus, he said. OCA projects have included workshops, social activities
and a newspaper, Getting Off,
designed for the student renter. The
group lias also been instrumental in
enforcing the rights of apartment
renters and in helping strengthen
relalions with the community."
OCA is funded by SA as a service
for the student body. Kennedy was
hired as the first paid coordinator
of lite group to act a

VAC Tightens
by I)uuglas Kohn
In an effort to encourage
students lo complete courses,
Academic Council (UAC) recently
approved a resolution lo issue
"incomplete" grades upon student
request only. The action will take
effect if approved by the University
Senate and SUNYA President Vincent O'Leary.
Under present academic policy,
an Incomplete grade must be resolved prior to one month before the
Albany Pacifists: W a r a n d P e a c e
by Sharon Soulier
There is a growing fear within the
Albany community that the draft is
noi just a threat. Concern over the
possibility of war has led to heated
reaction and an underlying
uneasiness has resulted in the union
of people lo fight President Carter's
I HOrVs: f G4TUR€
Local pacifists, ranging from
draft age to senior citizen status,
met at the Presbyterian Church on
State Street Thursday night to express their concerns over the probable reinstatement of the draft.
The thirty anti-war believers stressed war as an unnecessary means for
attaining worldwide peace.
John Dow, President of the
Capitol Area Chapter of the United
Nations Association, and one of the
first members of Congress lo vote
against appropriations for Vietnam
in 1965, feels war is now inevitable.
"Draft is a move toward war. It
is juvenile to threaten other coun-
tries with retaliation. To take a
hostile stance backing other countries up against a wall is dangerous
and an ineffective strategy," said
"Everyone in the U.S. and much
of the world is living under the
threat of nuclear war. This is likely
to happen considering how impulsive, misguided, and shortsighted some of the world
statesman seem to be. Therefore,
the students and others who mighl
be affected by a draft are probably
not in any more danger than the
average citizen in this nuclear age,"
he added.
Advocacy, Evasion
Dow continued with an attack on
the U.S. government's belief that a
conventional war could be won
against Russia, citing that two major powers will resort to nuclear
weapons rather than small scale war
John Raguso, a member of the
Knolls Action Coalition, which is
opposed to nuclear weapons, feels
human survival is threatened by the
aspect of war. "War cannot happen
any more if wc are to survive. This
may entail a change of values so
lhat people will no longer accept
war," he explained.
One speaker, an ex-Vicinam
draft evader, said the Russian
threat is great but means other than
war can be used to resolve the problem. "We're not pansies who
won't fight against Russia, we just
sec more realistic alternatives to
resolving international tensions
than war."
Darrin Bealc, a SUNYA ROTC
student, expressed concern over the
involvcmenl of minorities in war.
According to Bealc, staiistics on
past war casualties suggest a great
danger for minorities.
"ROTC recruitment is geared
toward minorities. The economic
benefits of joining the ROTC are
stressed in order to entice people of
lower economic status to join,"
Beale explained.
Female Forces
The group also discussed the
aspect of drafting women and most
agreed lhat neither men nor women
should be forced u> participate in
war. However, if the draft is
reinstated, the pacifists believe both
sexes should be involved.
Mid-East Target
Pat Bealc, a member of the
Capitol District Anti-Nuclear
Alliance argued that "the U.S. considers the area in the Persian Gulf
its vital interest. Our government
acts as if the oil from that area
belongs to us almost exclusively,
despite the fact that other countries
depend on it for resources as well."
"Carter ran on a platform which
emphasized less defense spending.
It's important that he be honest
with us. If he wants us lo fight for
oil, he should say it. We may not
feci that this is important enough
for us to risk the possibility for
nuclear war," Beale stated.
Raguso said groups such as the
Albany Peace Coalition will push
for a nationwide resistance to war.
"I sec the building of a war
resistance network and an opportunity to educate the public on
broad world issues.
"Our government has failed in
this," stressed Raguso.
end of the term following that in
which the incomplete was received.
According lo UAC Committee
on Admissions and Academic Standing Chair Robert Frost, the inconsistency of the present system encourages many students and professors noi to follow up on Incomplete grades. As of last fall,
there were 4200 incompletes on
record, some dating back as far as
ten years ago.
Under the new policy, an instructor would assign a grade based on
the work thai had been completed
in the course/ The instructor will
i still be able to issue extensions.
However, if an instructor does not
submit an academic grade or reI quest an extension by the deadline,
'the " I " grade will automatically
revert to a grade of " J " in courses
graded on an A-E basis. A " K "
grade will be issued for failure lo
complete an S-U graded course.
and " K " grades will be
equivalent lo " E " and " U " grades,
I respectively.
"Currently, if an instructor does
, not submit a grade, the incomplete
can remain on the transcript indefinitely," said FroSt, in explaining the rationale for the move.
"Inconsistency is occurring because
some students are having " E " or
" U " grades assigned by their instructors, whereas other students
arc not being penalized because
their instructors have not submitted
"It does not appear appropriate
that we currently list a deadline for
removal of incompletes while at the
same time arc powerless to enforce
the deadline," said Assistant
Registrar for Records Management
John Bartow.
An Inducement
Central Council Chair Mike Levy
called the proposal a " n o t
unreasonable" means of encouraging students to complete courses.
, "It will act as a catalyst by forcing
students to make arrangements with
their professors if they have an incomplete grade."
" The policy will not be retroactive
and will include an appeals policy in
case of extenuating circumstances.

What sets The Onion Field apart, and in fact
makes it a film worth seeing, is the superb acting, complimented by some excellent directing where It counts. James W o o d , who won
some well-deserved accolades for his performance in Holocaust,
plays Powell. He's
frightening. Wood is a perfectionist who won't
do shlock. He asked for retake after retake to
perfect the sequence when he asks his two
police officer prisoners if they've ever heard of
the Lindburgh Law, just before he shoots one
of them. It was worth the effort. On-screen,
Wood's nervous, quiet "/ told you we were
going to let you go . . . " is far more terrifying
than any amount of chewing the carpet could
have been.
John Savage, as Kari Hettinger, the
policeman who survived the night in Ihe onion
field only to be driven to severe depression by
guilt, turns in another In his series of fine performances. Savage also ages on-screen more
believably than most young actors.

The largest problem the film faces
dramatically is the problem faced In any story
that is inherently open-ended. Where do you
end it? The Onion Field builds up a good deal
of suspense to a harrowing climax, and then
drags on for another hour as we are treated to
excerpts from the longest criminal trial in
California history. What's worse, the trial
became a sideshow, as Gregory Powell, a certifiable lunatic, conducted his own defense,
cross-examining his own mother about track
events he participated In in high school. After
the first trial and Innumerable appeals, there
are several places where the movie seems to
The Onion Field has become somewhat
controversial for its depiction of Powell's
homosexual tendencies, and his partner Jimmy Lee Smith's accession to them in order to
get Powell to modify his story in court. The
most blatant scene of this nature takes place in
a prison shower, and it is here that Wood's
portrayal of Powell takes on real power. When
Smith gets on his knees in front of Powell,
Wood reacts like a pontiff having his ring kissed.
Though not an action film in the tradition of
Clint Eastwood epics, The Onion Field does
have Its share of violence, which it handles
graphically enough to more than justify an
R-ratlng. The onion field scene itself features a
close-up of a bullet hole being blown In a
man's face, and an attempted suicide witnessed by Smith in prison, features a totally explicit
and quite protracted wrlst-sllttlng.
The tone of the film, and the R-ratlng, one
would think, would convince most parents not

by now most people would know what an

really isn't a climax. Wambaugh's script seems
more concerned with tying up every con

seems unnecessary. I felt there were several
perfectly good places to end Ihe film before

happily accepted any of them to get things

Another curious problem, considering
Wambaugh's experience as a police officer, is
that there seems to be little feeling for Ihe lives
and work of policemen. The story seems
structured to balance the cops with the robbers, but the robbers get all the best scenes.
The film works best in the sequences when the
cops and Ihe tobbers are on-screen together.

Syed says that tobacco smoke
reduces oxygen levels in the blood,
and that this ill turn lowers the
amount of testosterone in males
and estrogen in females. These hormones, he says', are the ones responsible for the sex drives of humans.
Syed claims thai smokers who have
taken pan in experiments have
reported noticeable increases in
their desire for sex almost immediately after kicking the habit.

Energy Answer
A New York City inventory says
that those rush-hour traffic jams
and crowded shopping malls could
provide some of the answers to the
energy crisis.
Wayne LcVan has invented a
device that allegedly generates
energy by harnessing the weight of
people arid cars.
He is proposing that major cities
install gratclike "hit plates" on
busy sidewalks and streets. Every

depressed by a car or pedestrian, it

That doesn't mean, however,
that the popular drug is going out
of style. It's simply getting a name
The new name of the drug that
has gained notoriety across the U.S.'
is going to be Mequin. The drug's
manufacturers, the Lemmon Company of Philadelphia, say only the
brand name and the imprint on the
white tablets will be different. The
active ingredient, Mcthaqualone,
will reportedly remain the same.
Mequin, or quaaludes, were
originally manufactured to be taken
as sleeping pills. More often,
however, they arc taken illegally as
an aphrodisiac.
LeVan calculates that each "hit"
by a car would produce 1.5
kilowatts of electricity — or enough
juice to power a 100-watt lightbulb
for 15 hours.
Omni magazine points out thai if
six hit plates were installed on busy
expressways in New York — locations crossed by one million cars a
day — enough electricity would be
generated to meet the daily needs of
tens of thousands of people.

"weight power can be classified as a

Off-Campus Observations: Yesterday and Tomorrow
By John P. Kennedy
Thanks. For the last year, some o f you
have paid my salary. Maybe you didn't know
it; maybe you wouldn't have had you been
eiven the choice. I don't know. But anyway,
Sec, for the last year or so Student
Association has used your money—your
"'Student Activities Fee"—to' do many
things. Paying me was one of Ihcm. I hope
that you think that you got your money's
worth. (I cost you $6605 in 1979.)
Anyway, for those o f you — I suspect
most of you — who don't know me and have

oT the poster. I wondered if they might, by
chance, have a locker where 1 could slow my

There was a small room (a big closet, actually) near the pool hall in ihc Campus

Don't Lose Faith
To the Editor:
We, as acting officers of Ihc Albany Slate
Ski Club, and leaders o f " S k i and Parly week
in Canada", were very disheartened to learn
that three persons found ihc week a " t o t a l
waste." We are replying in reference to
"Skiing in Style?", which was primed in Ihe
Idlers column of lasl Friday's ASP. Finding
many of their quotes and accusations unirue
and misleading, wc now wish to sol Ihc
record straight.
Our trip began with 22 enthusiastic skiers
travelling many miles across ihc border into
Canada. Unfortunately, all or us were disappointed lo find a serious lack of snow. Upon
realizing the dilemma, wc as leaders, conlacied Paul Tclrcaull of the Sugarbush
Travel Club — Ihc agency through which the
group was organized. We inquired about two
things; how much refund people could
receive aflcr slaying one lull day (2 dinners, 1
breakfast, 2 nights lodging, 1 day lift ticket);
and if there was a chance of shilling (lie trip

our answer. Paul informed us that Ihere was

Vermont because n group from Virginia had
cancelled. Paul also told us the amount
which could be refunded for Ihose who wished to return home.
We assembled Ihc group thai night and offered the options to each person: I,to stay In

neither of us were aware of the conditions al
cither of Ihese lodges. Wc were simply given
ihe amount of space lo work with and were
asked lo fill Ihcm.
That evening we received a phone call from
the group of three, complaining about Ihe
conditions al Ihc lodge. Wo immcdltitcly attempted io help Ihcm, bul their emotional
and physical outbursts made any kind o f coin
promise impossible. Therefore, we conlnctcd

there was no more space available lo him. Wc
informed Ihcm of ibis along with Paul's appropriate offer of $65.(X) if Ihcy did not wish
to remain Ihere (lie never, as Ihey claimed,
presented "shut Ihc hell u p " as an alternative), They rejected Ihc offer and remained
for the week.
In conclusion, we'd like lo note Ihnl the remaining nineteen people were thoroughly
satisfied wiih lhe week — including ihe olher
five lhat were accomodated with ihe

Boycott the Olympics
To The Editor:
The Soviet Union's rccenl invasion of
Afghanistan serves an obtrusive blow io international justice and human ethics. This
blaianl act of hegemony musl nol be condoned. Forceful steps must be taken to
demonstrate explicitly that Ihc civilized nations of the world will nol tolerate these
heinous Soviet attempts at global domination.
One step lhat musl be executed is an
International boycott of ihc 1980 Summer
Olympics in Moscow. The extraordinary
Soviet zeal to host the Olympics is obviously
rooted In their desire to glorify Ihc Soviel
state, The glorification of Ihc Soviet Union,
in light of the rccenl Afghanistan offensive,
undermines lhe ideal of world unity cmbodied in Ihe Olympics. A boycott al ihis

Although ihc boycott will not precipitate
an Immediate Soviel withdrawal, iis Impact,
combined with olher measures under consideration, will make lhe political and
economic price loo high for lhe Soviets to

J. V. 's Engineer Eighth Victory
10 FAIL...
On hundreds of SUNY jobs
by Bob Bcllafiorc
After being down 33-31 at halftime, the Albany State men's J.V.
basketball team extended their
home winning streak to eight
games, as they beat R.P.I. 78-67
Saturday night in University Gym.
Albany's Mike Gatto led all scorers
with 26 points.
It wasn't until the second half
that Albany showed its dominance,
as the Engineers kept the game
within reach. But, with the Dane
advantage at three with 7:58 to go
in the contest, Greg Watson
followed-up a Gatto miss to make it
55-50. An excellent Albany delay
forced several R.P.I, defensive errors, and the Danes outscored the
Engineers 7-1 in the next 2:49, and
pulled away, 62-51. As the Albany
weave offense drew the defenders
out towards the perimeter, Dane
forwards slipped underneath for
easy buckets.
"I didn't think they'd defend it
like that," said Albany head J.V.
coach Steve Kopp, "It's nol supposed to work thai well." It did,

Tweedy. "Those kids (Albany's)

also emphasized the poor play of

with regards to 6-8 center Tom

Sauers One Shy Of 400th
Win; Plattsburgh
Tomorrow night's Albany-Plattsburgh game at University Gym is,
to be sure, a crucial SUNYAC contest for both squads. But looming
behind the scenes will be a personal drama, for a Dane win over the
lough Cardinals will be victory number 400 for Albany basketball
coach Dick Sauers.
Sauers is in his 25th ycur as head coach of the Danes, and currently
owns a career record al Albany of 399-186, a .682 winning percentage. His next victory will put him in a distinguished coaching class:
only three other active Division 111 basketball coaches in the nation
are members of the exclusive 400-win club. Predictably, Sauers is not
dwelling on his approaching milestone, but on the opposition.
"I'm thinking about win number fourteen for my team," Sauers
said. "It's a very important conference game — neither team can afford another SUNYAC loss. Platlsburgh is a good, smart team. It's a
pivotal game."
Indeed, Platlsburgh is not ready to roll over and give Sauers
number 400. The Cardinals are 9-5 after a 54-53 loss to Buffalo on
Saturday, and are 1-2 in the conference, witli both losses coming at
the hands of undefeated Potsdam. Coached by Norm Law, Platlsburgh is led by a pair of 6-3 forwards, 1979 All-SUNYAC first team
selection Kevin Baldwin (16.7 points, 6.6 rebounds this season) and
Paul Einsmann (16.3, 6.6). They arc a formidable squad, and have
Sauers' undivided attention.
"The 400 wins is just another factor in the game," said Sauers.

Swimmers Keep Coach Amazed
by Jefr Schadoff
"This team never ceases lo amaze
me," commented Albany men's
swimming coach Ron White, as his
team extended their undefeated
season Saturday to five wins, handing the visiting Bears of Potsdam
their fourth dual-meet loss in six
decisions, by the score of 57-56.
As the season closes its first half,
the Danes show increasing improvements with gutsy performances and the intensity to win
tough meets. White mentioned that
"this team probably performs best
under pressure."
The final score was not indicative
of the actual meet, for the final
event, the 400 yard freestyle relay,
had no bearing on the meet. The
Danes had enough points up until
the event to ensure the victory.
As the season progresses, White
and his swimmers can look nowhere
but ahead as they face stiff competition in upcoming meets with the
likes of New Paltz and Cortland.
"Division III swimming has some
real tough competition," White
said. Although it may seem a bit'

59-36, Ancrum realized that he
could wait no longer. His uncanny
shooting ability was not enough,
though, and when he jammed home
