Lester Condemns "11th Hour" Actions
by Aran Smith
A search committee for a new SA
Legal Services attorney is rushing
through candidate evaluations in an
attempt to make an appointment
before the new SA administration
takes office, according to SA Legal
Services attorney Jack Lester. The
recent efforts of the Legal Services
Task Force were not made public at
all, said Lester, denying concerned
students and campus groups a
chance to participate in the attorney's selection.
"They're trying to put the decision through in the eleventh hour of
their administration," said Lester
of the task force, formed by outgoing SA President Lisa Newmnrk.
"They're not being fair to the new
administration that has to deal with
the attorney."

'Tough Break" Helps Netmen Edge Middlebury
by Larry Kahn
On a perfect day for tennis, the
Albany State men's tennis team
provided a thrilling 6-3 victory over
Middlebury College at home on
Saturday. The match was a classic
Albany-Middlebury clash which
could easily have been decided by
a toss of a coin rather than by four
hours of grueling tennis. Unfortunately, the victory was marred by
an injury to Middlcbury's third
singles player and they were forced
to forfeit two matches that could
have changed the outcome.
"Overall, Middlebury is just as
strong as we are — maybe even
stronger," said Albany tennis coach
Bob Lewis. "We arc very evenly
matched teams. Every match in the
last four years has been either 5-4 or
6-3. We were fortunate to win this
one. They had a real tough break."
The matches themselves could
hardly have been closer. Plve of the
eight matches played went lo three
sets each. In singles action Albany's
number one player, Larry Linetl,
grew sharper and sharper as his
match wore on and he easily
defeated Fain Hackney, 6-3, 6-3.
" I felt I played well," said
Linett. "I felt 1 was able lo control
the tempo of the match. When I felt
he was gaining momentum I slowed
it down. When I was playing well 1
picked up the pace. That's the kind
of match I like to play — where I
am in control."
Linett had a little trouble with
Hackney's serve, but he managed to
hold his own serve, and at 3-3 he
got a service break. "I figured if I
could break him once, that would
be enough," he noted. "A power
player gets discouraged when
you break his serve His strategy
worked perfectly In both sets and he
coasted most of the way.
In second singles, Barry Lcvine
posted a strong come-from-behind
victory over Tom Donner, 3-6, 6-3,
6-2. "After a slow start Barry
played real well," commented
Lewis. Albany's 2-0 lead dissipated
quickly as Randy Young and Andy
Diamond each lost in straight sets.
"Young is having a lot of trouble
with a blister," Lewis noted.
"We'll have to rest him a few days
next week."

singles, 6-3, 4-6, 3-6, put Albany in
a difficult situation. The only
match still in progress was third
singles, which saw Lawrence Eichen
hooked in a seesaw battle with Middlcbury's Ron Pinsky. A loss for
Albany would mandate a sweep of
the doubles competition for them to
pull out a victory. Pinsky took the
first set, 6-3, but Eichen edged him
in the second, 6-4.
The third set was a struggle all the
way with neither player giving an
inch. Eichen pulled out in front at
3-4, but then faltered and failed to
hold serve. Pinsky roared back,
taking the lead at 5-6.
Then came the turning point of
the day. Eichen served al 0-2 and
during the subsequent rally Pinsky
got caught leaning the wrong way
and when he tried to quickly reverse
direction he fell lo the ground
writhing in pain. He had to be
helped orr the court with a badly
twisted ankle and was unable to
continue — forfeiting the match to
"That match could have gone
cither way," said Lewis. "But they
had a real lough break when Pinsky
couldn't continue." Unfortunately
for Middlebury this was the first
time this year they had failed to bring an alternate so that in addition
to forfeiting the singles match they
were forced to forfeit a doubles
match. The tide had suddenly turned. Now Middlebury was in need of
a sweep of the remaining two
doubles matches to salvage the victory that was within arm's reach only moments before.
Bolh doubles matches were cliffhangers. Linett and Levine teamed
up in first doubles against Hackney
and Donner. The Middlebury duo
found the right formula In the first
set, winning it, 6-3. The second set
was probably llie most crucial set of
the day. Linetl and I.evine jumped
on lop at 2-0, but couldn't hold on.
They grabbed the lead once more at
6-5, but Hackney and Donner
brought it even once more forcing a

SUNY Budget May Boost 22M
by I.uura Horenlino
After remaining in limbo for Ihe
past month. SUNY's budget situation improved Monday as a $22.3
million appropriations bill (UNI)
was introduced into the New York
State Legislature.
While the New York Stale Senate
voted last Thursday against the
restoration of SUNY's budget,
"their real intention was lo override
Carey's veto for all higher education," according lo Deputy to the
Chancellor for Legislative relations
Herbert Gorden.
"On the floor they said it was a
mistake, they did not want to sustain the veto," Gorden said. "The
problem was that the SUNY system
appeared in a different part of the
budget than BUNDY and CUNY
aid," he added.
Carey's proposal for the '80-'Hl
budget included a two percent
financial cut to affect all state fund-
ed sectors, and an addiiional cut to
ihe SUNY system, resulting in a
toial $26.3 million aid decrease.
According lo SASU representative Bruce Cronin, Ihe Democrats
voted against SUNY Thursday, to
force Republicans 10 negotiate wilh
Carey on Ihe revenue sharing seclion of the bill.
The Democrats want the
Republicans to pass Ihe revenue

The UNI bill was introduced into
Ihe Senate by Senaic majority
leader Warren Anderson and
Senate Higher Education Committee Chair Kenneth LaValle and In
the Assembly by Assembly Speaker
Stanley Fink and Chairman of
Assembly Higher Education Committee Mark Siegel.
The bill, however, is not without
regulations. Under the restrictions
section of the bill il says SUNY is

According to SASU Communicalions Director Pain Snook, the bill

WASHINGTON (AP) Rep. John B. Anderson of Illinois

that I cannot attain a majority of the delegates who will be
attending the Republican National Convention in July,"
Anderson said. While he will remain a Republican, Anderson said he is convinced there is enough voter dissatisfaction with President Carter and the Republican frontrunner, Ronald Reagan, to allow him to become the first
independent candidate ever to win a presidential election.
His first campaign trip as an independent will begin Saturday with stops in New York City, Washington, Atlanta,
West Virginia, Detroit, Lansing, Mich., and Boston.
U.S. Allies Imfl'dse
WASHINGTON (AP) Introducing himself only as an exGI who had been exposed to Agent Orange in Vietnam,
Max Cleland, head of the Veterans Administration, called
several VA hospitals to ask if his health had been endangered by the herbicide. To his astonishment, no one
knew what he was talking about. Dr. Paul Haber, the VA's
assistant chief medical director, took it from there. In a
conference call, he told the medical chiefs of staff and environmental health physicians of the nation's 172 VA
hospitals: "You folks had better gel your act together."
Only a few days earlier, Cleland had assured Congress that
every veteran who suspects his ailments are tied to the herbicide can get counseling and a thorough physical exam at
any VA hospital.
(AP) In Washington, a senior Carter administration
strategist said prospects are increasing that the Soviet
Union may try to seize control of the northern part of Iran
because failure to solve the hostage crisis is pushing the
country toward "paralysis" and disintegration. The official, who refused lo be quoted by name, told reporters
that if the Iranian government collapses, the United Slates
might move to protect the oil fields in southern Iran. But he
said the prospect of U.S. intervention was still
"far-fetched" and remote.
State Seeks Disaster
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) The state is seeking up to $6 million
in federal disaster aid to help local governments deal with
-late March flooding which ravaged seven upstate counties.
Gov. Hugh Carey said Wednesday he had sent a telegram
to President Carter requesting the aid and pointing out that
some communities in Albany, Greene, Herkimer, Montgomery, Schoharie, Sullivan and Ulster counties have
already committed a total of $848,000 to the cleanup effort.
Carey also said the state is spending about $2.3 million to
repair roads and bridges damaged by the March 20-21
flooding which claimed several lives and was the worst in 25
years for many parts of eastern New York.

(AP) Iranian Foreign Minister Sadegh Ghotbzadeh today
threatened to cut off all Persian Gulf oil — not just Iran's
— if the United States mines Iranian ports. Ghotbzadeh
made the threat in an interview with Iranian radio, but he
did not say how Iran would block oil shipments from the
other major Persian Gulf exporters — Saudi Arabia,Kuwait, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar.
Strategists have long pointed out, however, that the
relatively narrow Straits of Hormuz, at the mouth of the
gulf, are a choke point that could be exploited by terrorists
or others to block the traffic of supertankers. Some say a
few well-positioned sunken ships could block the waterway.
President Carter has threatened military action against Iran
if the U.S. Embassy hostages are not freed. A naval
blockade or mining of Iranian ports are the chief military
options under consideration. Iran would "close the gulf
and not allow a drop of crude oil lo be exported," Tehran
Radio quoted Ghotbzadeh as saying.

Students were given a chance to

of this year's SA presidential and
vice-presidential hopefuls in a candidate's forum on Colonial Quad
last night.
The presidential candidates
discussed student involvement with

Schatsky stated, "there are problems with the current SA administration and with SA's rapport
with students."
Schatsky also voiced his opposition to the newly formed SA policy
that mandates voting students to
vote on the quad on which they will
reside next semester.
"The voter turnout will be even
worse," he said.
Jeremy "Jumper" Carlson expressed a desire for "students lo
unite on issues."
"The people now elected or currently running don't have Ihe ability

WASHINGTON (AP) A decision by European allies to impose phased economic ana diplomatic sanctions against
Iran may prompt the United States to defer use of military
force to try to free the American hostages held in Tehran, a
senior Carter administration official said Wednesday. The
official, who is deeply involved in planning U.S. strategy in
the Iranian crisis, criticized the nine European Common
Market countries for what he called a lack of strategic
understanding of the problems facing the West in Iran.
"They are not responding adequately to the larger strategic
problems," said this official, who asked not to be identified. "They've become regionalized." President Carter,
at a news conference last week, said If U.S. and allied
economic pressures against Iran fail to win the release of
the 50 Americans held hostage at the U.S. Embassy in
Tehran, "the only next step available that 1 can sec would
be some form of military action."

Students Must Vote
On Next Year's Quad
by Sylvia Saunders
A proposal to temporarily suspend voting rules was turned down
at Wednesday's Central Council
meeting by a 13-9 vote, according lo
Central Council Representative Artie Hanks.
Banks, who originally suggested
the amendment, said he objects to
the present rule thai students must
vole on the quad they'll be living on
next year. His amendment would
have enabled students to vote on
the quad they'll live on next year or
their current quad.
"I think Ihc present rule will kill
voter lurnout," he said. "Students
arc just not going to take the time to
go to another quad to vote."
He said lhat his concern is for
"Ihc credibility of SA." He added
thai "SA should go out and get the
vote, rather lhan make it even
Hanks said Ihc normal voter turnout is approximately 30 percent.
He said he believes Ihis already low
rigurc will decline to 10-15 percent
because of the new rule.
"You're forcing students lo trek
to u place I hey may never go," he
added. "SA should be responsive to
the students,"
Off-Campus Representative Ed
Klein opposed the amendment
"It goes against the basic idea of
SA being a miniature of the government," he said. "You vole for the
people who will represent you. If
you're going to live on Indian Quad
next year, you should vole for the
representatives on that quad.'
Klein added, "You should start
familiarizing yourself with the quad
anyway. It's not that long a walk."
Klein said he didn't thjnk the present rule would decrease voter turnout because people will be anxious
to use the voting machines. "It's a
novelty," he said.
"The perfect situation," he continued, "would be to have six
voting machines on each quad.
That way one would be for Indian
reps., one would be for Stale reps.,
etc. But that's impossible because
we don't have enough machines."

Oneida Indians Sueing NY State
by Beth Cammarata
"First, the Oncidas do cede and,
grant all their lands to the People of
the Stale of New York forever."
These words arc part of a treaty
written in 1788 at Fort Stanwix
(northwest of Rome, New York)
that is one of the bases for a current
property rights suit being brought
by Ihe Oneida Indian Nation of
Wisconsin against the stale of New
York, according to SUNYA Assistant Professor of Anthropology
Jack Campisi.
The suit involves some four to
five million acres of land in central
New York, covering an area bound
on the north by the St. Lawrence,
on the south by the Susquehanna,
and including sections of twelve
Counties in between, as outlined in
treaties made with the Oncidas in
1785 and 1788. Named as defendants in the suit are the state of New
York, Broome, Chenango, Cortland, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis,
Madison, Oneida, Onondaga,
Oswego, St. Lawrence, and Tioga
counties, some 200 municipalities,
and about 60,000 individuals, who
own more than two acres of land in
the disputed area.
"One of the claims in the suit is
that the Oneidas were defrauded.
The eighteenth century meaning of
'cede and grant' is either lease or
sale, and Ihe Oneidas thought Ihey
were leusing Ihe land. The government led them to believe this until
1792, when il interpreted the agreemenl to have been a sale," Campisi
"The Oncidas actually only gave
up the agricultural rights to the
land," he said. "As late as 1786,
New York state supported their
right to hunt and fish in the area.
But in Ihe 1870s, darns were built
that cut off the run of sturgeon and
other fish. When Ihe Indians complained about this, the state said,
'Well, we said you could fish, but
we didn't say there would always be
fish to catch," he explained.
"In 1974, there was a U.S.
Supreme Court decision on Ihe
Oneida Indians that permitted them
access to the courts," which had
previously been denied to them, according to Philip Tarbell, Specialist
in Indian Culture in the state education department. "According to the
laws of the land," said Tarbell,
himself a full-blooded Mohawk, "if
you bring over laws of land ownership, and you don't follow them,

According to Campisi, who was

McOrady asked 26 of his

and the second was that "true excellence in writing would be bluepenciled into oblivion."
Naked Came the Stranger eventually sold 100,000 hard-cover

Schatsky- Fact Finding Fighter
A week ago, Gary Schatsky would not run for financial reasons. His supporters wanted him in the race
and put up the funds themselves.
The Albany Studeni Press endorses Gary Schatsky
for SA president due to his varied experiences,
outstanding leadership qualities, and plans for the
In meeting with Schatsky and in observing him
throughout the year, the committee found him to be
intelligent, dynamic, and demanding.
He also has one characteristic which is an asset for
the job — Schatsky is a financial whiz.
Gary is probably best known for his work with
(against) the Follett-SUNY Bookstore in obtaining
J contract alterations, student discounts, and policy
modifications. For many* years, SUNYA studehts
have felt themselves up against a wall — trapped by
the prices and policy whims of a merchant which has
exerted an effective monopoly on the SUNYA textbook market. After an exhaustive study of
bookstore finances, and comparisons to similar
operations at other colleges, Schatsky approached
t h e management with facts, figures, and workable
solutions which have since been instituted. Once he
knew that students were behind the reforms, as
demonstrated by the well-publicized sit-in, he took
the lead assertively and effectively.
His philosophy is simple and to the point — "You
better know your facts well, and then you fight like
It is important for any SA president to have extensively dealt with the legislative branch, and to be
aware of the procedures and peculiarities of Central
Council. Schalsky's two-year service on Council
places him within this context.
Besides executive ability and legislative experience,
we were pleased with the variety of his activity.
He has worked extensively on UAS, possessing an
understanding of its finances, and worked toward
feasible alternative board plans. He helped expand
the credit union and its financial assets, worked for
emergency phones on campus, helped re-establish the
ACT course assessments, was Class of '81 president,
a Finance Committee mcqiber, Athletics Finance
Committee Chair, etc.
The list is extensive.
Besides his past accomplishments, the committee
was overwhelmed with his plans — plans which we
felt could be implemented once Schatsky was given
the key.
He wants to open communication with referendums whereby students can propose, enact, or reject
legislation passed by SA. This idea is quite extensive
and complex. Yet if Schatsky can make it a reality,
then we will finally have a democracy.
Tying groups together for joint efforts, systems of
food coupons, a nutritional snack bar, and a legal
challenge against unwarranted holds on student
records — these arc just a few more.
What the committee found in Schatsky was not an
assertive politician with empty plans and accomplishments. We examined his track record, tied it
in with his character and plans, and got a lot of
positive feedback.
SA needs a fact finder to lead students, and his
peristence and perscrverancc will be assets in dealing
with administrators.
After this past year of relatively weak leadership,
progress, and communication, Schatsky is the one to
bounce SA back with a thrust. He has stressed the
potential power SA has stored up behind the paperwork and parliamentary ruts, and if given the go-
ahead, Schatsky will come around.
Gary is not very well liked by the present administration and this fact disturbed us. But then we
looked deeper and found this to be an asset.
The present SA administration is a slow-moving
clique behind walls. Little attempt has been made to
bring students into the group as can be cited by the
lack of ample succeeding freshmen and sophomores
in SA, the absence of leaders visiting students on the
quads, one newsletter in the fall, and ho letters or
columns in this very newspaper by present leaders.
What's more important, not a single referendum on
an issue was sent to students to see how they
themselves feel,
The only fault we found in Schatsky is that he can
be too pushy, and at times, overbearing. But channeled appropriately and with others' watchful eyes,
this can be a true asset.
The time has come for constructive change and
reorganization, and the ASP feels that this can be
found in Gary Schatsky.

The ASP endorses Frank Baitman for SA Vice President based on his utmost sincerity, his experience,
and his untapped potential for a more effective student government. We feel his activity in a whole
variety of campus groups and his association with a
diverse set of people coupled with a realistic sense of
SA do qualify Baitman for the position.
What the endorsement committee liked best of all
about Frank was his stable, yel open character. He
has proved himself to be assertive, yet not aggressive
in past performances with both students and administrators. Drop Frank in a room packed with
angry dogs and, chances are, he may come up with a
workable solution.
Fran* is the moral candidate, he hasn't a
distasteful word for many and he is not one to waver
from side to side when faced with opposition. Student concerns are more important to Baitman, and
the committee believes him. "Politicking" and SA
terests don't come into his picture.
Serving two years on Central Council, and chairing
the Student Services Committee. Baitman achieved
reforms in refrigerator contracts, housing contracts,
book discpunts, and bus grievances.
His familiarity with campus resources and his
knack for common sense, compromise, and redress
has gashed much red tape so well known at SUNYA.
As a Vice President, Baitman would hopes to
separate academics from student services and to
eliminate the "office manager" aspects of the role,
changes which are long overdue for an administration's effectiveness.
Students may not see many brilliant and elaborate
changes with Baitman, but the ability to move a gray
office into one of clarity would be his.
You can forget about cliques, stagnation, and
scandals with Baitman as Vice. His personality
wouldn't let it happen. He's too damn moral. This
guy really is out for students and SA needs his services and his leadership badly.
A Schatsky/Baitman balance could be one of the
most progressive, effective, and focused administrations in recent SA history.

The graduate stood In the parking lot, his heavy black gouun
weighing on him like an oppressive heat blanket. Amid a whirl of
conjuslon — mothers with sweat dripping onto made-up
fathers trying to hold the camera still, and other graduates, frocked In
black, hugging each other, uiaulng goodbyes — this graduate eeked
through the crowd to get In the middle of It. Cars blowing horns, and
a teary eyed little girl who lost her mommy, circled him. The mad
frenzy of the late May afternoon circled him. He felt like an axis of a
huge wheel. The wheel spun furiously but In no direction and in less
than a half hour the wheel slowed its revolution and stopped. The
kids and the snap happy fathers and sweating mothers had gone.
Even the little girl had found her mommy and left. The graduate was
left alone In the parking lot, in the axis of a wheel that ceased to be.
The sky on the edge of the world seeped with red and yellow
streaks as the sun settled. The opposite sky on the other edge was
stained purple, the color of death. Stars Ignited, a silver sliver of
moon rose. It was the twilight of just another day.
The graduate turned away from the dying myriad pastiche of the
sun and walked towards ihe purple edge and the highway. Cars sped
along listening to Ihe radio. Il was just another highway up there. It
would take him auiay, further away from the dying ambers, further
towards ihe purple horizon, further along . . . the twilight zone.
You are entering another dimension; a dimension of space
(closing In) and a dimension of lime (running out). But before you
start on thai long journey Into the unknown we'd like to give you a
preview of what to expect from life on a little planet called Earth. It's
a planet of great greens and blues when viewed from an extraterrestial's eye view. Yel It's a planet thai at any moment could be extinguished by the bloody hands of ignorant men whose values of
greed and sublimated lust preclude an appreciation for those blues
and greens. Il is a planet run by men who take the natural and the
supernatural (or granted. Case in point; the Pyramid Construction
Company: an organization that prides Itself on its ability to rape
nature, kill existing species, and steal Man's most precious natural
resource. It does so so il can build shopping malls and parking lots,
great palaces of preformed sleel and plastic. These malls have
become shrines for the people who flock to them who think they'll
get satisfaction o( their needs in those antiseptic, Muzaked halls.
They are halls of spiritual vacuum, with plastic potted plants, carcinogenic meals, and vulgar lurid ploys to exploil our mosl Incipld
weaknesses. In fact they are so vulgar they would be laughable if we
could forget about all thai death il look to gel them built.
Only God can make a Iree and only Man can destroy them all.
A piece of advise from the twilight zone lo your home town: only
you can prevent ihe thrasher,
Spiritual G r a f f i t i
"If you didn't care what happened to m e .

We would zlg zag our way through the boredom and pain,

Wondering which of the buggers to blame

The Old Gray Mayor

Erastus Corning II their mayor in 1941

So Corning found his niche as mayor
and has remained there long enough to
make him the longest-tenured mayor in
the country. In the decades at the beginning of this century, Albany was a solidly
Republican town. Then, Democrats lead
by party boss Dan O'Connell, charging
Ihe Republicans with corruption, rousted
tlieli opponents from power In the 1921
elections. The Democrats made the city a
party stronghold and have not relinquished it since.
When O'Connell, who chaired the
Albany County Democratic Party died in
December of 1977, Corning assumed
parly leadership for the remainder of
O'Connell's term saying he would step
down when the term expired. But after
successful surgery on an arthritic hip
joint, Corning changed*his mind, forced
out rival Charles Ryan, and was elected
to the chairmanship,
Coming from a well-to-do first family
background, Coming went to private
boarding schools as a youth. He received
his college education at Yale where he

leadership. The Albany machine, instead
of dying out like similar organizations
which once ran New York, City and
Boston has remained in power ovef the

Reflecting on his career as mayor, Corning says he can't think of any major
decision he would have made differently,
Including his entering the military during
World War 11 when he could have filed
for an exception. "If I thought about
details, though, I'm sure there are :;ome
things I would have handled differently."
Corning names his most dramatic accomplishment in office as conceiving Ihe
financing plan for the South Mall, a projecl which he originally o|3posed.
Currently his primary concern-, include
providing quality housing and continuing
support for the handicapped.
He reiterates his pledge lhat no studenl
will be evicted In the middle of a semester
because of violation of Ihe anti-grouper
law which stipulates that no more than
three unrelated people may share an
apartment. "I haven't had one studenl
housing complaint, in two months. The
anti-grouper law is really for safety's sake.
I'd have a war on my hands in certain
sections if it were repealed."
Safety is an issue that has been raised
by some women students requesting the
suspension of alternate side of the street
parking regulations so that they do not
have to walk as for lo their homes at night
in neighborhoods where rapes have been
reported. Corning maintains thai some of
these regulations have been modified so
that they are in effect only one night a
week, but he can not be specific about
where the changes have been made.
"The police are trying to catch this rapist.
Fortunately he's not the most violent one
I've ever heard of."
Corning declares that he's in favor of
students voting In their college communities, Including Albany, but admits
that there are problems with state laws
against It.
The mayor leans back In his chair when
he talks about his personal life. He Is proud of his wife's and his children's accomplishments. Corning met his wife
Elizabeth over the summer of 1930 In
Maine. She Is an avid hortlculturallst and
was once president of the Garden Club of
Their daughter shares her mother's Interest In plants. She majored In botany at
Cornell and is working on a doctoral
degree at the University of Maryland.
Her older brother, Erastus III, followed
his father's 'footsteps to Yale where he
studied Russian and later became instrumental In implementing airline service
between New York and Moscow.
Coming shares some of his wife's love
(or gardening but prefers relaxing by
fishing, bird watching, and collecting antiques. His enthusiasm for reading about
history is still strong and he pulls a copy of
the earliest biography of Aaron Burr from
a desk drawer. "As you get older, you

Benefits Of Crossgates
IVrlrfen by a Pyramid Employee
For the multitudes of SUNYA students who have had trouble finding a job near school,
a cultural event to attend, or a variety of good, inexpensive restaurants lo eat at, the
answer will soon be one mile from campus. The proposed Crossgates mall will be located
just past Stuyvesanl Plaza on Western Avenue and will relieve SUNYA students of the
boredom the Capital District now offers them. Although the construction of the
mall is
somewhat controversial, there is no controversy over the ma!
s potential benefits for
SUNYA students.
Completion of (he Crossgates mall will create over 2500 jobs, most of which will be
part-time, minimum wage retail jobs for which students arc often hired. There will be easy
access to these jobs via the Capital District's bus system, which travels up Western Avenue
or since the center will be a mile away, one might decide to bicycle or walk.
The mall will have a large number of stores not presently found In the Albany area.
These stores will offer merchandise of higher quality than is now available at other outlets
around town, and these stores will give students a wider variety of places to shop. Filene's
a Boston-based, high quality department store, has already agreed to be a tenant in the
For those of us whose appetites are not satisfied by Wall's subs and Albany Campus Pizza, Crossgates mall will offer Cafe Square, a collection of about twenty-five different fastfood restaurants that share a common seating area. Every kind of ethnic and international
food will be available only moments away from any of the four uptown quads. In addition
t.i Cafe Square, there will be several sit-down, high-quality restaurants, as well as a dinner
theatre. This will eliminate the need to travel all the way up to Wolf Road for a decent
Above and beyond the food, the jobs, and the merchandise, the Crossgates mall will offer students a new place to go and a wide variety of different things to do. The center will
have a number of movie theatres, bars, and nightclubs each offering something to
students that isn't around right now. The boredom of the Rat, the Lampost and the Long
Branch will be assuaged by closer, more diverse forms of entertainment. Whereas the
nearest place to dance now Is Fatso's or the Rafters, Crossgates will have several places to
danc, with music ranging from disco to rock. All this to do and just minutes away from
So for those of us who are totally fed up with Albany, something great Is just down the

Pyramid has an uncanny ability to come up with the governmental permits they need to
build their malls. When Pyramid wanted to build a mail In the Utica suburb of New Hartford, they ran into bitter opposition by environmental groups and city officials. The mall

wetland area and that it would^harm Utica's struggling' downtown businesses — fears very
similar to those opposing Crossgates.
Pyramid applied to the Environmental Commission (EnCon) for permits to construct

fellow Utopians John Siegler and John Wilcox
on bass and drums respectively. Considered
by many lo be Iheir best, although certainly
not their most popular record, this LP contains
seven solo compositions by Daryl Hall, as opposed to one by Oates. Moving up to 1977,
the year that Hall recorded Sacred Songs, the
Hall and Oates duo released Beaulv On f.
Backstreet. Although a disappointing followup to Bigger Than Both oj Us, it again proved
Hall to be Ihe more potent composer and
Nevertheless, It couldn't fairly be said that
John Oates wouldn't be an asset to almost any
band and Ihe Hall/Oates combo Is noexception. John's most valuable asset is his voice,
which reached Its height of popularity with
"I'm Just A Kid (Don't Make Me Feel Like a
Man)" from 1973's Abandoned
Luncheonette. 1 didn't say It was great, Just merely
his note-worthy contribution. John Oates Is a
complementer, an accentuator, but not an
originator. The chances of his making It solo
are two; slim and none. His singing, writing,
and strumming have never-been anything
more than adequate.
So when Daryl Hall's Rundgren-esque
voice, one of Ihe best In the business, learns
up with the production and six string expertise
of Robert Fripp, It naturally follows that a lessIhan-central talent like John Oates becomes
expendable. In fact, after hearing Sacred
Songs, one might seriously question the future
of Daryl Hall's musical association with John
Oates: not because Frlpp Is the perfect partner
for Hall and not because John Oates Is an Inadequate partner. If It proves anything,
Sacred Songs Is a testimony to Daryl Hall's
capability as a solo artist, and on the same
token, the expendablllty of musical Oales.
"Something In 4 / 4 Time," and "Babs and
Babs," Frlpp and Hall merge for an enjoyably
tight and precision-based opening segment.
Enter Robert Fripp into the spotlight for the
finale of side one, "Urban Landscape" and
" N Y C N Y . " "Urban Landscape" Is pure,
unlyrlclzed Frlppertronlcs; a laid back and
mercifully short song which unless put under
close scrutiny, goes virtually unnoticed.
" N Y C N Y " (New York City, New York) Is the
low point of Sacred Songs. It's a Jumbled
hodge-podge of blaring axe work, Hall's street
sleaze voice, and Frlppertronlcs. It's simply
noisy. The second half of Sacred Songs Is
amply foreshadowed by "Why Was It So
Easy," a light, airy composition which
highlights Daryl's vocal versatility, seasoned
with Frlppertronids. It Is enjoyable, easy moving music that Is lacking In dynamic Impact. As
a collection, Sacred Songs Is to'j smooth
because somewhere along the line, I expected
at least one song to reach out and grab me.
But wall as I may, 1 remained distantly removed from the melodies.
If ft seemed strange that Daryl Hall and
Robert Frlpp would converge on an album,
there was good reason for It. Their respective'
efforts don't always mesh tbgether effectively
and the LP's high points come when one, Invariably Daryl Hall, Is in the forefront. Frlpp Is
no more, If as effective as John Oates, and
Sacred Songs, along with lis detracting Frlppertronlcs might Just as well be another in the
long line of Hall and Oates albums. Then
again, It could be a Hall and Anybody album.
Daryl Hall Is capable of creating a solo smash,
but not with Robert. Frlpp. Some things Just
don't mix and I'd rather hear a pure Daryl Hall
album, or the complementing Oates, than this
erratic merger. The contrast In styles is just too
blatantly obvious, and the result is an unbalanced finished product. If Daryl Hall still
wants to share his musical spotlight, he's better
off feeling his Oates. •
It's not much of a wonder why ihe 1977
material of Sacred Songs wasn't released until
1980. In the wake of Bigger Than Both Of Us
success, a departure from Oates and a formula
which bred amiable notarlety, would hardly be
a popular move. Still more importantly, Hall's,
"new" album Is produced by Robert Fripp,
who also plays gullars and "Frlppertronlcs".
Frlppertronlcs are synthesized delay and feedback techniques which create a spacey,
iclence fiction aura. While these sounds
weren't so popular in 1977, as evidenced by
Ihe commercially unsuccessful collaboration of
Bowie and Eno on Low, Bowie forged on. By
1979, with the release of Lodger, the synthesizer kids had come up with a more accessible sound which still played heavily on Ihe
futuristic sound. People like Gary Numan
picked up on the sound, and the popularity of
his synthesized single, "Cars," speaks for itself.
In fact from where we sit now, It's considered
somewlui! chic and progressive to incorporate
this Milky Way music inio one's composition!]
So what belter lime lo release Daryl Hall's solo
record, complete with Frlppertronlcs than
"Sacred Songs," the alburn's opener and title cut, Is Daryl Hall a la Bigger Than Both 0 /
Us. His voice can cover a wide range of attitudes, from sentimental si 't to sleazy
street. In this case, it's an impressively pleasing
and rugged tenor; There's just no time and It's
nut the night, I'd have to face you again and
again. Although you know I'd like to stick It In,
slick It In. Although Frlpp's guitar work Is
seemingly more powerful than Oates', it
doesn't leave any traces of an alleged guitar
great. In fact, If 1 had to rely on Sacred Songs
as my sole impression of Robert Frlpp, I'd
chuckle whenever the word "great" preceded
his name. He seems unimaginative and Incapable of stylish Improvisation. Still, on the
album's three opening cuts, "Sacred Songs,"
He's got t h e v o i c e a n d t h e d i v e r s i t y b u t s w i t c h i n g p a r t n e r s w a a a Frlpp-off. I t

was joined on stage wllh a full power rock
band. The band consists of the two members
of the Cryers, plus drummer Jay Dee

The show kicked off with "Vagabond

song from his first and only album, called
Willie Nile, He played a vast majority of songs
from that album; "Thai's The Reason," "I'm
Not Walling," and "She's So Cold." Willie
also palyed some previously unreleased
songs. The peak event of the evening was
when he did Ricky Nelson's "Stood U p , "
which brought the crowd lo life.
Despite all the power and emotion put Into
Ihe, songs themselves, the performance was
lacking. His breaks between songs were erratic
and sloppy, reminiscent of teenage bands In
sleazy rented garages. He didn't know what
song to play next and read in front of the
crowd from his song list. But hey, this was his
first concert and his stage presence was
powerful enough to outweigh his naivete, His
moves on stage were reminiscent of the late
Buddy Holly.
Willie Nile's path Is yet untrodden, but only

religious cults, family counseling, consciousness raising, and the ecology all come In

exactjy true, the criticism is not leveled at the
ideas as much as the people who "practice"
them. What the makers of Serial find most
contemptible are people who follow trends
merely because they're fashionable. It rejects
people who follow the pack without intellectual or moral conviction and use the "new
morality" as an excuse for their own hedonistic
behavior. This Is a tricky movie for the cast,
because while everyone behind the scenes is

A typical scene in a typical American household? Maybe.
The youth of this country have grown into multi-faceted
creatures, and at a time when style prevails over practicality,
It has become necessary for them to buy a different type of
sneaker to fit each situation that they may enter. For comfort's sake, it would be wrong to expect someone to wear his
basketball shoes while running in the Boston Marathon. But
then again, It is ridiculous to look down on someone for
wearing the wrong sneakers while drinking beer. It shouldn't
be a great embarrassment to make the simple mistake of
wearing your Quaalude-eating sneakers to an Acid test. It
can be pretty tough on daddy's wallet {or on your own wallet
if you're not from Long Island) to buy a different pair of
sneakers for everything you do, from going to a Yankee
game, to boogying to Earth, Wind, and Fire. Also, considering the spontaneity of America's college students in 1980, It
would be almost Impossible to predict what one will be doing

At one time, the puma clyde was riding high on top of the

in an effort to keep the price low, the quality of the shoe has
been greatly reduced. They are comfortable and long lasting,
yet they are a bit heavy for a low-top gym shoe. They are attractive, casual sneakers, and their narrow toe makes them
great for climbing fences. For the money, they're not a bad

the cracks about a BA in English being a BA in BS. That may
be true, but there are still some tricks of the trade that may
prove helpful.
Unlike other departments, English teachers make a habit
of taking attendance, a petty Gestapo tactic to be sure, but
one that must be contended with. (Incidentally, don't try
having a friend write down your name: most teachers won't
be tacky enough to confront you with It, but they'll know,
and they'll get even). Attendance Is a fact of life, so you have
to go even if you're at death's door — especially if you're at
death's door — they love martyrs (like Beth in Little Women,
Alcott's classic with strong feminist undertones). English
teachers are among the easiest people in the world to convince that you love learning for the sake of learning. Once

As far as involvement goes, Mark
Lafayette may be the most qualified candidate for the office of SA vice president. As an active member of the
University Senate, Central Council, and
Student Services Awards Committee,
Lafayette has worked to improve student life here at SUNYA.
The basic problem we had with
Lafayette was his character and his image. There exists a serious lack of faith
in his conviction, dedication, and
sincerity. To attract a student body he
must be able to project integrity and
confidence. Lafayette is still convinced
that his decision to keep quiet about last
year's election fraud was in the best interests of students, and we doubt
whether he could ever regain support
and respect quickly enough. Time spent
in that manner is time that SA may ill be
able to afford. Lafayette should always
work for SA; his project-oriented style is
needed. But a position of such leadership in SA is not the best place for Mark.
as known for its " o b n o x i o u s " attitudes
and behavior.
While he said he supported the
resignations of the initial conspirators in
the election scandal, lie voted in Council
against impeachment proceedings.
He appeared more assertive and active
than Bailman did, yet too many of his
ideologies eluded us.
Levy's active involvement includes the
position of Student Services Chair,
working to revise the housing contract,
refrigerators, UAS, Health Services, and
others. He is a member of two committees on the University Senate, on an
equal, if not better, par than Bailman.
But we arc forced to resist from endorsing Levy due to our overall impression
of his character.

Keep a close eye on Dean Betz in the
future. He has a long way to go and if he
plays an active role In the Association,
this candidate may one day become
A first semester freshman, Bet/, has
absolutely no experience In SA and really doesn't know the first thing about it.
The scandal, " t h e proliferation of an
SA bureaucracy," and committees thai
seem to " d o nothing" prompted Betz to
run for the vice presidency.
Betz has been active in the Student
Union and is a national organizer of the
Albany Peace Project. In addition to
that he's done some production work
for the ASP.
His campaign is costing him 5 bucks
as compared to the hundreds most of the
other candidates have spent; he works
with Xeroxed posters, door-to-door
paigning, and word of mouth.
And what a mouth.
Betz sees SA as working merely on
short term goals in the past, while they
be w o r k i n g o n
achievements such as eventual collective
bargaining with administrators, complete teacher evaluations, and a larger
role in budgcl-culling.
Dean claims that, if elected, he wants
students " o n my ass telling me what to
d o or what I've done w r o n g . " And Dean
is absolutely sincere in his concerns for
students, His efforts might be better
directed toward SASU or the Union. But
if he gains more knowledge in SA affairs, his ideas could be developed, and
developed to the point of effective SA

As far as prior involvement is concerned, Brian Levy probably has all of
the adequate qualifications to be SA
Vice President, and the ASP almost endorsed him. But we found some real
ideological problems and character
flaws which hindered us.
Like Sue Gold, Levy tended to fluctuate on issues and ideas and presented
too many inconsistencies to get the endorsement. At limes he was on the
defensive, and at other times was quite
Although he deems himself qualified
also for the presidency, Levy put
forth few outstanding proposals for SA
and for students in general. His aims
seemed centered around fun-oriented
projects such as musical chairs, hats at
basketball games,
teaching awards, and cable TV — all
things which we could realistically do
He feels that SUNYA's problem is
that it is state-funded and not " a Division One s c h o o l , " which presents very
little leeway in effectively addressing
Other remarks such as "whether a
person is competent or not doesn't matter as long as he's hard working" and
that there is " n o real wall, only as
perceived by students," bothered us profusely.
Levy also said that he never brought
the election fraud issue to light because
he assumed that SA President Lisa
Newmark knew about it and that, as
president and " t h e guardian of student
interests," he thought she was handling
the situation herself. We found this
loyalty and faith inappropriate ideas for
the Vice Chair of the Legislative Branch.

also praised his relief pitcher:
"Woods throws more off-speed
stuff than Dey or Mike Clabeaux,
who I was thinking of bringing in.
And Woods did a perfect job."
The Danes came up with the win
despite being out-hit, 12-5, and four
of Albany's hits came in the sevenrun second inning. Matt Antalek
started off the big inning by beating
out a high bouncing chopper to second. Bob Arcario followed by also
grounding the ball towards the second baseman, who bobblcd the
ball, but still managed to throw Antalek out at second. Noonan then
pitched himself into trouble by
walking the next four Dane batters,
forcing in two runs. With the early
lead, Skeel decided to gamble on
the basepaths, and with Rivera at
bat, Skeel called for the squeeze
play. Tony Moschella came charging down the line from third, and a
surprised Indian catcher let the ball
go by him, bringing a run across.
Another attempt at the squeeze play
later in the inning was unsuccessful,
when the bunt attempt was fouled

explained Skeel. "We have been

almost tried the squeeze a third time
in that inning.
Rivera then singled up the middle, and the Danes had a 4-0 lead.
After Jim Lynch loaded up the
bases by reaching first on an error,
Bruce Rowlands belted Albany's
first hard-hit ball of the Inning — a
line drive double to right center,
good for two RBIs. Coming up for
the second time in the inning, Antalek drove home the Danes'
seventh run with a ground single into left field.
Managing just one more hit the
entire game (Rowlands' single) off
Siena relief pitcher Dave Staschak,
the Danes had to rely on Dey and
their defense. A Rivera-RowlandsRhodcs double play shut the Indians down with only one run in the
third inning, but Siena continued to
whittle away at the Dane lead. But
Dey stopped the Indians cold in the
seventh and eighth innings, before

"After we got the big lead, the
question was could we keep playing
good defense and get a solid pitching performance," said Skeel,
whose squad faces Colgate tomorrow. "That's what we had^to have.
I felt Bruce (Dey) wasn't walking
people, so that's why I left him in."
Although Dey didn't pitch a
complete game, he still was around
to see his victory saved by Rivera's
backhand beauty, a play that lasted
all of five seconds, but one that
went a long way in the Danes' three
hour win.

for the Seven Sisters Invitational at
Smith College tomorrow and Sunday. This is the first time the tournament has been an invitational and
Albany is one of the 16 teams to attend. The only other SUNY school
that was invited was Binghamton.
Mann is bringing two singles
players (Light and Newman) and
two doubles teams, which will consist of O'Conner and Guss as one
team, and Bard and Solomon as the
The invitational will have three
rounds of tennis tomorrow, with a
consolation round for first round
losers. The finals will be on Sunday.
Mann is excited about the tournament, but has "no idea how we'll
do." She continued, "When I first
slarted coaching at Albany, we
couldn't compete with Ihe private
schools. Now, with the great
popularity of tennis, the abilities of

Thursday (yesterday). Mann, who
considers her one of the best players
she has ever coached, thought
Denenmark was out for the season
due to mononucleosis. Excited
about her return, Mann was practical in laying out a workout
schedule with her. "Lisa will play
20 minutes one day, 30 the next and
slowly build up. She is still weak
and tires easily. She needs to build
up her stamina. I doubt she will be
ready before the end of the
season." If Denenmark does return
to old form quickly, she will have to
play a challenge match with the present number one player Light, in
what Mann concedes would be " a
very interesting match."

Against Siena, Albany jumped lo
a 5-3 lead after the first inning, but
the visitors got four more runs in
the third, three in the fourth, and
then an eight-run barrage in the
sixth frame that clamped the door
shut on the Danes.
"We handed il lo them," said
Rhenish about yesterday's loss,
citing more of those communicalion problems between players as a
major reason for the defeat.
The RPI game also saw Albany
fall victim lo over-confidence. Scoring eight runs in the lop half of the
first inning, the Engineers had plenty of time (nine innings — women's

Casual altitude, lack of communication between players, lack of
mental toughness, unintelligent
play, and "dumb things" are what
have been plaguing the Albany
women's Softball team this past
week, as they dropped two contests
— one to Siena, 20-9, yesterday,
and a tight decision lo RPI, 14-13,
on Tuesday.
All these things add up to a lack
of experience, according to Albany
women's Softball coach Lee
Rhenish. "We have the capabilities.
There's no doubt in my mind about
that," said Rhenish about her
squad. "We have lo learn lo make
decisions In stressful situations,"
continued Rhenish. She noted such
mistakes as throwing to bases thai
weren't covered, not relaying information to the outfield, and just a

"One of the things that hurt us is
that we get ahead right away and
then get back, and they catch u s , "
Rhenish said. About RPI, she commented, "They're out to get you
every inning."
Lack of concentration reigned
there as, in one instance, it cost
Albany a potential run. While attempting to beat out an infield hit,
an Albany batter was struck by the
throw, and awarded third base —
but she forgot to touch second, and
was called out on the subsequent
appeal play. Rhenish considered
this one of the blunders that "cost
you runs,"
A perfectionist, Rhenish strongly
feels that her team could easily be
9-0 instead of their present 6-3.
"We can't seem to be able to come
through in the clutch," said
Rhenish. " I ' m most disturbed
about the faci that we've lost games
that we never should'vc lost. The
three games we lost I see no reason
why we couldn't have won," she
Rhenish also isn't satisfied with
the effort of her team, and isn't
pleased with their attitude. She feels
that although they're trying lo "do
the besl wiih what we have," she
isn't getting what she wants, which
is "IIO percent,"
"I hope our losses are out of the
way," said Rhenish, who fell that
the Danes need a "meshing
together," and she expects that to
come in the next few games.
About Saturday's doublchcadcr
against Russell-Sage (which begins
at ll:00 a.m. on the Dutch Quad
field), Rhenish is optimistic, noting
thai Albany has swepl their Iwo
previous twin-hills this season. "I
hope we can lake bolh of those,"
said Rhenish. "It's not a social occasion, It's a game lo be played.
Maybe they (Albany) can show
everybody what Ihey can do, and
what they're capable of."
Ruggers Take
Three Victories
by Mike Nuclcrio
Saturday in Plallsburgh, the
Albany Stale Rugby Club swept a
tri-mcct with victories over the
Saranac Lake Rugby Club and rial
tsburgh, and boosted their record to
4-0. There were big crowds on
hand, including a news crew and
camera crew from the local NBC
In I he day's rrpening game,
Albany faced the Saranac Lake
team. Few of the spectators gave
the Danes much of a chance lo beat
their more practiced veteran squad,
but Albany had other ideas.
' Up against one of the top teams
in the northeast, Albany took a 10-0
firsl half lead, thanks to two scores
by ex-football quarterback Terry
Walsh. The Danes hung on through
a brutal second hall, and walked
off with a 10-8 upset victory.
Next came a battle of II teams
from Albany and Plallsburgh.
After a somewhat sloppy start, bolh
teams settled down. The hittirg was
fierce wiih Albany dominating most
of tile play. When il was over, an
Albany squad had chalked up ils second win of the day, as Pittsburgh
fell 18-10.
Finally, il was time for the contest I Inn the crowd was waiting for
- Albany A versus Plattsburgh A.
Expected to be a tight struggle, the
game was an Albany romp. The
scoring was last and furious, with
bolh the hacks and the scrununers
gelling in on the glory. Here, in
their second game of the day, the
Danes handed the Cardinals fin impressive 28-0 shutout,

Strong Running For Trackmen In Colgate Relays
by Jeff Schadoff
" Wc definitely showed that we're
a running team," said Albany head
coach Bob Munsey as his varsity
track and Held team fared quite well
Wednesday afternoon in Andy Kerr
Stadium at the Colgate University
Assistant coaches
Callaghan and Ron White led the
troops to Colgate "as the old man
let his kids take over," said
Munsey, who could not make the
trip north due to his teaching commitment.
The meet was declared a nonscoring affair which meant that no
team-trophy for overall first place
was awarded. "This took a lot of
pressure off of the guys," said
Albany's co-captain Jim Cunningham cashed in first on the clay
for the Danes as he placed a close
third in the 400 meter intermediate
hurdles. His time of 57.0 seconds
was just .3 off the winning time of
56.7 seconds by Wallace of
Blnghamton. Credit must be given
to Paul Eichclbergcr and Peter
Passidomo for their performance in
that event. "Paul placed sixth in
58.3 — one second better than his
personal best. Peter never ran in the
400 and broke one minute with a
59.9. These guys did one hell of a
job and they should be commended," said Munsey.
Although it was their best time all
year, a Dane 400 meter relay team
composed of Bill McCartin, Tony
Fcrretti, Jeff Knight, and Howie
Williams look a somewhat disappointing third behind home team
Colgate and Mohawk Valley Community College, touching the tape
in 44 seconds flat. "We've got the
speed for sure, but they haven't
been able to get the stick-work
(passing the baton) down," said
Things started cooking for
Albany as the meet became onethird old, for the Danes put four
guys into the 6400 meter relay
(Scott James, Mike Sayers, Bruce
Shapiro and Bill Mathis) not only to
come out with a first-place finish,
but a meet record to boot, vanquishing Hudson Valley Community College's old record. The Danes
broke that 1975 mark of 18:05.9
with their time of 17:36.5.
This relay is a mere four ,
yards short of a comparable four
mile race. With James trailing in
second-place to his Syracuse combatant for the first three laps of the
four lap stint, James shifted into
high gear as he handed off to Sayers
leading by 20 meters. "We were
hoping for a little tougher competition from Syracuse," said Sayers.
"I really felt they'd do pretty well.
Scott was second with 300 meters
left but Syracuse couldn't believe it
when he handed off in front. When
it was Shapiro's turn, he broke it
open real early and Mathis coasted
home with the victory," said an exuberant Munsey.
Not to be outdone by the Danes
prior meet record performance, the
team of Mitch Harvard, McCartin,
Fcrretti and Williams outdistanced
the rest of the field in the 800 meter
relay to give Albany their second
meet record as they coasted to a
1:29.9 — over two seconds better
than Hudson Valley's second and
almost one second better than a
1976 Cornell meet record mark. "I

guys pulled it off with super performances," said Munsey.
The long jump team, headed by
Tim Gunther, produced a fourth
place for Albany behind Cayuga
Community College, Colgate and
Cortland. The Danes put together a
combined score of 57 feet and 3 '/i
inches — two feet, seven and V» inches out of first. "Tim's performance In the triple jump (his personal best) made me extremely happy," commented Munsey.
Continuing their winning ways in
relay events, the Danes, represented
by Williams, McCartin, Ferretti and
Mathis in the men's spring medley
relay, "won it big over Colgate,"
beating them by more than six
seconds with a time of 3:32.7. The
medley consisted of two 200 meter
legs followed by 400 and 800 meter
splits. By the time of the final 800
meter leg, he "just blew them out,"
said Munsey in explaining Mathis'
sprint to victory.

Larry Linctt started the ball rolling for Albany with a routine victory over Tom Crawford in firsl
singles, 6-1, 6-4. "Linctt played as
well as he had to lo win," said
Lewis. "He's about back to where
he was last year."
In second singles, freshman
Harry Levinc fought back after a
firsl sci loss to beat Siena's Dave
Mannix. "Levinc gol off lo a slow
start, but played well in the end,"
noted Lewis. In the first scl he look
a 2-6 shellacking, but then turned il
around and trounced the
bewildered Mannix, 6-0, in the second, and put him away in the
third, 6-3.
The remainder of the singles matches were pressure matches. Andy
Diamond and Dave Lcrner were
both forced lo move up two notches
on the ladder, and Kevin Laurilliard
and Dave Avergun were promoted
from third doubles because of the
absence of Eichcn and Voung. According lo Lewis, "Diamond had
his hands full" and he lost in
straight sets to Chuck Koffenberger, 6-3, 6-1. Lerncr had an
"impressive win" In fourth singles,
pouncing on Chris Arnold, 6-1,6-1.
Laurilliard lost in straight sets
leaving Albany with a slim 3-2 lead.
That put Avergun, playing in his
first-ever singles match for Albany,
in a key situation. If he lost they
would need Iwo doubles viclories to
win Ihc match. His debut was a
tremendous success, though, as he
pulled out a surprise victory over
Fra/ier Hancock, 7-6, 6-2.
Albany look their 4-2 lead into
doubles and the (cam of Laurilliard
and Avergun clinched the match in
third doubles with a straight sets
victory, 6-3, 6-4. The firsl doubles
team of Lined and Levinc also won,
but the second leant, Diamond and
Lerncr, were outclassed by Mannix
and Arnold, 7-6, 6-1.
Tuesday's match al Union was a
lough loss for Albany because normally Ihey could have beaten them,
but Eichen's loss was felt more than
against Siena. "Wc have a liltlc
stronger learn lhan Union," said
Lewis. "I'm disappointed that we
lost — I hale lo lose lo a learn we're
better lhan. The reason we lost was
that Eichcn was out and everybody
moved up one. One of our
weaknesses is that wc don't have a
lot of depth. If we lost somebody
high on Ihe ladder we're in trouble."
Albany played well in first and
second singles wilh Linett and
Levinc each winning in straight sets.
"Levinc played well and Linett
played as well as he had to," commented Lewis. "He came from
behind lo win both sets."
From there on the effects of
Eichen's loss became more evident.
Young, Diamond, and Laurilliard
all played up a notch and suffered
losses in straight sets. Dave Lerner,
playing in the fifth singles spot, had
a chance to even the match at three,
but dropped a very tough match to
Union's Steve Eskenazi.
Lerncr look the firsl set, 6-4, but
was barely edged in the second
when he lost a tiebreaker, 3-5. He
jumped off to a quick 3-0 lead in
the final set, but Eskenazi made a
great comeback to defeat him, 5-7.
"The key match was Lerner's,"
said Lewis. "The loss meant we had
to sweep doubles."
Albany almost pulled it off, but
the loss of Eichcn once again proved to be their undoing. Linetl and
Levinc won easily in first doubles,
and Laurilliard and Avergun teamed up lo win an incredibly close
third doubles match, 7-6, 5-7, 7-6.
Diamond and Lerner, who don't
usually play doubles, couldn't put it
logclhcr in second doubles.
"The second doubles learn was a
makeshift doubles learn," noted
Lewis. "They lost easily, 6-2, 6-2,
and that was the clinching match.

The Danes also had an away
match late yesterday against
Amherst. Their next match will be
the SUNY Center Tournament at
Buffalo this weekend in which
they'll meet Buffalo and Binghamton.
Linctt, Albany's number one
player, has been playing well so far
this season, but Lewis sees the tournament as "a good test to see if he
can come back from a poor performance in the fall."
"Linctt will have his work cut out
for him," he said. "He'll be facing
Binghamton's number one player,
Mark Lifschltz and Todd Miller

runner-up in the SUNYAC's last

Ingredients Add Up To 15-14 Lacrosse Squad Win
Danes Even Record At 3-3
In Close Call Over Union
by Jay Gissen
You take a player like Rich
Heimerle, a four year veteran that
can stickhandle like some people
walk; a guy who can romp and roll
behind the goal and turn in for a
quick, unassisted score when the
Danes need one.
Take a guy like Tom Scarpinato,
a defenseman who doesn't know
the meaning of the phrase
"give-up"; a guy who can take the
man-up position and charge in for
an unassisted goal with the case of
an eagle.
Take John Nelson on the attack
— a guy who scores on cue with the
drive of an army; a team igniter
who acts as the spark plug of a
V450 engine on offense — a winner.
Add about 15 more guys and the
feisty coach who puts it all together
and you have a winning Albany
State lacrosse team; a team that
gives up 14 goals but scores 15; a
team that makes a one goal difference a happy ending, a team that
showed 'almosts' can be 'reallys'.
Combining all the key ingredients, the Albany State lacrosse squad took a
15-14 decision over Union. (Photo: Allen Calem)
The opponent was Union, the
local rival who beat Albany 10-9
last year. But this time out, the lead
was Albany's throughout, a close
and tight lead that Albany had to
Tight to keep, a lead that relied on
the necessary one-two combination
of the experience of Heimerle, Scarpinato and Nelson, and the young
team effort that kept the defense
mostly effective and the offense
Anll-nukers demonstrated at the Capitol,
25,000 marched in the rain.
The win was Albany's third
against three defeats, and like last
week's close loss to Gcneseo, the
Danes played four quarters of solid
lacrosse, handling groundballs both
handily and sldppily but getting
better and better at them, moving
the ball more, setting up the shots
quicker, making the shots better.
The name of Wednesday's game
was "keep moving, keep pressing,"
and that's just what Albany coach
Mike Motta's boys had to do to
come out ahead.
"It felt good to be up, good to be
winning," said midfielder Ken Gorman, smiling. "The team was
together and we played real well. It
got a little tough in the fourth
quarter, but we kept pressing and
Tom Pratt secured that winning
goal to keep us ahead."
In fact, that "tough" fourth
period was the only time that
Albany as a team was really outplayed; but it was where, in times of
trouble, the experience of Heimerle
took over, where Doug Dowd's experience also paid off with a goal,
and where a sparked newcomer like
Tom Pratt could also put in the
winning shot.
And what about the Albany
defense? For three quarters they
played beautifully, battling face-off
losses and Union onslaughts, but in
the fourth quarter, th.y got sloppy,
giving up seven goals and almost
giving it all away. But they didn't,
and the early saves of Dane goalie
Ken Tinnan helped make the fourth
quarter scores only a matter of
"It was very close, very
At the very least, Rivera's play
kept the contest from going into extra innings. The Danes had stung
Indian pitcher George Noonan for
seven runs in the second inning, and
then hoped those runs would be
enough, as Siena slowly chipped
away at Albany hurler Bruce Dey.
Dey battled into the final inning,
allowing one run in each of the
third through sixth frames, but in
the ninth, leading 7-4, Dey gave up
a towering two run homer to
Siena's Chuck Sohl, cutting the
Albany lead to one run. After Chet
Smith smacked a hard double to
leftfield, Skeel took out his ace pitcher and brought Woods on for
relief in a tight spot — no outs, a
man in scoring position and a slim

suspenseful," said defenseman Vic
Emanuello, "and It's nice to win a
one goal game."
Motta, who kept busy all game
long setting up play after play and
calling strategic time outs, sees the
game as a perfect example of what
It should and did take to be a winning team — good playing, good use
of time, hustling.
"The team played real well,"
said Motta afterwards. "The offense was looking good and it was
real good to win a close one. Our
defense held them, and I think it
was a close match but we outhustled them and did the job."
Scoringwise, Albany's fifteen
goals were spread out among ten
players, and the Danes outshot
Union in all four quarters. On the
groundball, despite some trouble,
Albany kept things pretty even
thanks to Hcimcrle's finesse and
some of little Warren Wrey's sheer
"It was close, but we out-hustled
them, and out-played them," insisted top scorer Nelson. "We've
played two good teams (Geneseo
and Union), and just the couple of
goals difference got us a win. The
offense has been looking real good
lately. Rich (Heimerle) played a real
fine game."
Next on the Dane agenda is
Oswego, a breather of sorts, but
certainly not a pause. The momentum has to be kept up to par, that

Fielding Gem Lifts Batmen Past Siena, 7-6
by Paul Schwartz
It happened so fast that the
Danes had to wait until after the
game to realize just how important
it was. One moment shortstop
Frank Rivera was edging closer,
finally settling right on the infield
grass. The next instance he was diving — not a long, graceful dive, but
a quick, darting one. Then he was
back on his feet, pouncing to throw
out the runner at first.
It wasn't even the final out of the
game, but it was the play the Danes
pointed to afterward as the most
"Frank made a great play at
short," said pitcher Rich Woods.
"He saved the day."
"As far as I'm concerned, that
was the play of the game," said
Albany baseball coach Rick Skeel.
"Rivera's play won it for us."
The fielding gem helped lift
Albany to a 7-6 victory over visiting
Siena yesterday, evening the Danes' spring record to 5-5 after their 17-13
loss to RPI on Monday, while dropping Capital District rival Siena, a
Division I club, lo 8-8.

About 25,000
demonstrators from 35 states marched in the rain from the nation's
capitol to rally at the Washington
Monument Saturday in the first action of a three-day protest against
nuclear power and weapons.
The Coalition for a Non-Nuclear
World, sponsor of the protest,
established five demands: an end to
p. wer and nuclear
afe energy, full employment, and the honoring of native
American treit'es.
Speakers at Hit rally included
move their infield in, in an attempt
to cut down Siena's possible tying
run, standing just 90 feet away.
Woods and his side-arm delivery
faced the next batter. "I was Irying
to make him hit it on the ground,"
said Woods. He did, but not where
Woods wanted It. The hard
grounder was smashed between
short and third — earmarked for
leftrield and an RBI. But Rivera
made a quick, diving backhand
stab, fielding the ball cleanly, got to
his feet, checked the runner back to
third, and fired over to Bob Rhodes
at first for the out. Still thinking
groundball, Woods then ended the
game by forcing Mike Taeliaferri to
bounce out to Rhodes.

Buchanan's attorney, E. Stewart
Jones, Jr., said it was "a combination of circumstances which forced
his client to resign."
Jones stated three main reasons
for Buchanan's decision. First, he
said, the city was not desirous to
have Buchanan back on the force.
Second, Buchanan himself was not
desirous to be put back on the
force. Thirdly, Buchanan was
desirous of leaving the area and going south.
Jones said, "If Buchanan had
decided to go back (lo the force),
higher officials would have made it
hard on him." Jones added that Ihc
decision to resign did not take
anylhing away from the acquittal.
Vita's attorney, Paul Chceseman,
said it would have been lough for
his client to return to the force after
the accusations.
Cheescman said, "Vita could
have had the hearing and won,
sought his position back, or retired;
instead of resigning." Cheeseman
added that he had no idea of what
Vita intends to do once the resignation is official.
When asked about the resignations, prosecuting attorney Dennis
Acton said, "It would have been
terrible if they had continued on the
force; I still feel they were guilty."
He added, however, lhat it
would have been betlcr if ihey had

Although the Coalition does not
favor any particular presidential
candidate, Commoner mentioned
that he "does not support independent Presidential candidate John
Anderson (R-Illinois).
"Anderson is what I would call a
pseudo-alternative," he said. "He
is pro-nuke and against labor and

"If they had gotten in, there

Commoner also stated that

Voting Mix-ups Create Chaos
by Eric Koli
The first day of SA elections did
not run smoothly, as certain voting
machines were broken or delivered
lo the wrong quads, according to
SA Election Commissioner Ron
However, "quick action" by the
commission prevented any interruption of the election procedures, he
said, except for a malfunctioning
machine on Dutch Quad. Paper
ballots were used instead on Dutch.
Delivery of Ihc election machines
was first interrupted hours before
voting lime when early Monday
morning Plant Department
Members apparently delivered a
machine intended for Colonial
Quad lo Alumni Quad, the Dutch
machine to Colonial and left the
Alumni machine in the SA office,
.Joseph said.
The mix-up was discovered when
Joseph returned to the SA office
Monday morning and found the
Alumni Quad election machine
The Alumni Quad machine was
then brought to Alumni Quad.
Later, when Joseph learned that
Colonial Quad was given Dutch
Quad's machine, he switched names
in that machine from Dutch Quad
candidates to Colonial Quad candidates and left the machine on Colonial.
The reasons behind the mishap
are not clear. According to Joseph,
all five machines were clearly marked with "big red and white
stickers" indicating on which quad
they belonged.
Sources inside SA spcculatacd
that the plant workers may have
been negligent. Joseph, however,
said that "plant department
workers did a great job helping us
move the machines after they found
out what happened."
In addition, SA sources also suggested that someone may have

Assembly Approves $22.3
Million to SUNY's Budget
by I.aura Fiorenlino
The future looks bright for the SUNY system after a $22.3 million appropriations (UNI) bill passed unanimously in the New York State
Assembly yesterday.
Although the New York Slate Legislature voled against the restoration
or SUNY's budget April 16, the UNI $22.3 million appropriations bill
was introduced into the Assembly last Thursday.
According lo Deputy Chanellor for Legislative Relations Herbert Gordon, the Legislature did nol want lo cut SUNY's budget April 16, "their
real intention was to override Carey's veto for all higher education."
The UNI bill, co-sponsored by Assembly Speaker Stanley Fink and
Chairman of Assembly Higher Education Commitlee Mark Siegal,
however, states thai SUNY mainlain its current level of institutional and
program offerings.
The bill is presently in the Senate Finance Commitlee and should be
presented for Senate debate "Wednesday or next Monday," said SASU
represenlative Bruce Cronin.
There is a 99.9 percent chance the bill will pass," said Cronin. "All
the holshots (in the Senate) arc supporting it."
The ultimate fate of SUNY's budget, however, lies with the decision of
Governor Carey and Chair of State Division of Budget Howard Miller.
According lo SASU Communications Director Pam Snook, Miller's office is where the "buck stops in New York State." Miller has the power to
impound all or some of the 22.3 million, she added.
The bill is considered a test of Carey's Intent on increased spending.
Carey has said there may be room'for some pot sweetening in this election
year; but he is insisting that the Legislature approve some additional
revenue measures such as higher fees and speeded up corporate tax collections to finance any full-scale restoration of his vetoes.
According to the Associated Press, if Monday's bill becomes law, it will
raise the total appropriation for SUNY campuses to $740 million.
