a college team can schedule foreign
tours only once every four years,

down to basketball. The competition, which will primarily be teams
with older, non-professional
players, should challenge an Albany
squad that finished their 1979-1980
campaign with a 21-6 record, including a spot in the NCAA Division IILplayoffs.
One team the Danes definitely
will face is the Central Team, and
that's where the Albany connection
comes in. That squad, which competes in Sweden's second league,
contains two people with strong ties
back to the Danes, University Gym,
and Sauers himself. The Central
Team's coach isGaryTrevett, who
in 1977, graduated from Albany
State, where he started as guard for
the Danes, and who still holds the
Albany record for assists in one

"We want to play some of the

After the initial plans were arranged, the Danes' trip still had one
major roadblock before Sweden
became a reality — money. The
Central Team is sponsoring the trip
in Sweden, where they will foot the
bill for Albany's expenses while in
Sweden. "But," said Sauers, "we
still need eight thousand dollars to
get us on the plane." That money is
currently being raised by contributions to the Albany Basketball
Booster Club, and also by the selling of advertisements and booster
spots in next year's basketball yearbook, a new publication which will
be unveiled next season.
"We found that this is the best
way to raise funds," explained
Sauers. "Last time, we had a lot of
different ways. But if we don't meet
our goal, the players will have to
contribute for the trip themselves."

Students Forced Off Senate
SA Pres. elect Sue Gold - 1286
Surprise Vote Ends Twelve Year
Twelve years of student representation on SUNYA's policy-making
body ended Wednesday as faculty
members voted down a motion calling for four-year extension of student representation on the University Senate, 114 to 112. The decision
will result in the elimination of 33
student scats.
The students will, however, be
allowed to serve on Senate committees.
Extension of student representation on Senate is voted on every two
years. The 1978 vote supported
students "overwhelmingly" by 80
percent, according to student
Senator' Mark Borkowski. "I'm
very surprised — I didn't think we
would have any trouble getting the
voles," he added.
According to Borkowski, the
overriding concern was lo have a
quorum present — in this case, 20
percent of the faculty — to make
any legislation binding. If a faculty
member calls for a quorum and Ihe
Championships Show That Softball Team Belongs
by Marc Haspel
At the outset of this season, the
goal of coach Lee Rhenish and the
young Albany State softball team
was to make the New York Stale
Championships which were held
Friday and Saturday here at
Albany. Twelve gamesi later, after
having compiled a fine 9—3 record,
the Danes deservedly achieved that
goal, placing them on the same level
with the best Division 111 softball
teams in all of New York. Though
they only won one of the three
games that they played in the tournament, the Albany squad played
quality ball, proving to everyone
and themselves thai they can play
w*th the top teams in the state.
Albany opened the tournament
Friday morning with an 8-5 win
against Stony Brook in 11 innings,
the game was a real defensive struggle, a pitcher's duel, especially after
the seventh inning when both teams
were deadlocked at five runs apiece.
After three full extra innings of
'play, Nancy Halloran—the eventual choice for all-tournament team
third baseman—got things started
with a single. Halloran then stole
second and came home on centerlieldcr Lori Cohen's single. First
baseman Carol Wallace followed
with another single' and before it
was all over Albany had scored a
game winning three runs.

Linett And Levine Tabbed
For Nat: ,nal
by Larry Kahn
The NCAA Division 111 National
Tennis Tournament selections were
made last Thursday and chosen to
represent Albany Stale this year
were Larry Linett and Barry
Levine. They are among 64 players
selected nationwide for the tournament which will be held in Clairmont, California on May 14—17.
"I'm very happy that we're going," said Albany men's tennis
coach Bob Lewis. "It's always one
of our goals to go to the Nationals.
It's an honor to be selected, but it
will also be a great thrill for us
because the playoffs arc in California this year."
Both players should be entering
the tournament pending funding
from the post-season contingency
fund of the Athletic Finance Committee, but Albany Athletic Direct o r ' B o b Ford said that "that
shouldn't be a problem." Last year
Albany had three players selected
for Nationals. Linen and Lane
Lerner went and each won their
first round match before being
eliminated, but number one player
Paul Fcldman was forced to sit out
with an injury. The team slill finished with an impressive 13th place
finish in the nation.
This year Linett and Levine are in
lop form. Both have been selected
to play singles and they are the first
alternate in the doubles competition. Linetl, a senior, has a 15—8
record playing for Albany, and
Levine was 15—5 in his first year.
"Both of them are very competitive and will give a very good account of themselves," said Lewis,
and Ford agreed, "We have two excellent candidates this year — one a
senior on the way out, one a
freshman on the way in. It's too
bad we can't get them all here
together at the same time."
And Linett and Levine? "We're
just happy to go," said Linett.

into the top of the eleventh, Nancy
(Halloran) and I were really psyched lodo it. She got on, I singled and
she scored."
With one win under their belt,
the Dane's returned that afternoon
to face the lop seed in the tournament, Queens College. Against Ihe
very highly rated school, Albany
played extremely well. In fact after
four and one-half innings of play,
Albany was ahead, 2-1. However,
in Ihe boliom of the fiflh, Albany's
defense faltered for the first, and
really ihe only time in the lournameni, which was all lhai Queens
needed to gain a six run advantage.
But, in spite of ihe eventual 9-3
loss, Rhenish was satisfied with her
team's performance: "Queens is
lough competition and there is no
room for mistakes. Bui we played
four super innings with Ihem. We
hit their pitching which was the
fastest in ihe tournament," Rhenish
As il turned out, the Queens' pitcher lhal faced Albany was chosen
as all-tournamcnl pitcher and
Queens College eventually went on
to win the stale championship over
Kings College, 3-2. In that final
game, a fly ball and an overthrow

According to chair of the meeting
Kendall Birr, although a quorum
was present at Ihe beginning of the
meeting, the four-year extension
was voted down. When a new motion was made calling for a one-year
extension of student representation,
some faculty got up and left and a
quorum was not present and the
motion was dismissed.
Borkowski remarked lhal Ihe
one-year extension attempt "would
have had a much better chance of

The teams arc being cut despite
offers from the respective coaches
to stay on without receiving any

SUNY At The Crossroads
by Thomas Marietta
In 1968, New York Governor
Nelson A. Rockefeller declared, "If
you want to preview the American
university of the 21st century, look
at what is happening at SUNY today." Time magazine's cover
featured then SUNY Chancellor
Samuel B. Could and the story inside highlighted the brand new campus at SUNY-Albany. .
Last week, SUNY breathed a collective sigh of relief as the
Legislature effectively turned back
an attempt by Governor Hugh L.
Carey to cut $22.3 million from it's
budget. As the fountains spurted
for the first time last Friday,
SUNYA President Vincent O'Lcary
expressed happiness at not having
to make the difficult decisions
budget cuts would have forced him
to make.
Is this a one year breather? Will
the recent "Save SUNY" campaign
become a yearly ritual in the '80's?
How will that "modern university
of the 21st century" fare in the upcoming decade?
Predictions of declining student
enrollments and the possibility of
less state funding make the future
uncertain, but SUNY Chancellor
Clifton Wharton and O'Lcary
refuse to predict an impending
doomsday for SUNY.
But there is a haunting reminder
of the 1970's — when budget cuts,
lawsuits and retrenchments clouded
SUNY and SUNYA's progress.
If any campus typifies .the growth
and history of SUNY, it has to be
SUNYA. When Rockefeller poured
millions into his dream of a huge
public higher education system,
construction workers poured the
world's largest slab of concrete onto an area which formerly was the
Albany Country Club. SUNYA
became a ready made university in
two ways: structurally and
academically. The growth was rapid
and aggressive.
When Vincent O'Lcary arrived as
a professor of criminal justice in
1968, he saw this attitude come full
"I'd say the school typified what
was happening SUNY-wide,"
O'Leary said. "Our instruction was
to make it the best criminal justice
school In the country." O'Leary
said that in one year, 125 faculty
lines were added to SUNYA.
Unfortunately, the growth was
too rapid and limitations would inhibit original plans for SUNYA.
Those plans showed SUNYA as a
comprehensive university center, to
be strong in a wide range of areas.
But the money no longer flowed so
freely in the early 1970's, and suddenly SUNYA found itself branching in many directions it could no
longer afford to go.
"comprehensive university" was
questioned, and it became clear that
these limitations would have to lead
to a change in focus. Once again,
SUNYA's structural and academic
plans coincided. A plunned extension of the west end of the campus
was scrapped, as was the plan to
make this a university center of
20,000 students.
But that caused problems. The
seeds for the comprehensive university had been planted, and
somebody had to uproot them.
"At this time we had few increases in faculty," said O'Lcary.
"But the programs and students
wefrc not matched ~ the campus
had a substantial imbalunce."
Former SUNYA President Louis
Benezet then set up a select committee to make recommendations on
which programs should be reduced.
. The focus of that committee was to
create a long-range plan of reducing
several programs.
However, in his State of the State
message in 197S, Carey declared
that the "days of wine and roses are
over," which meant that the days
were limited for a number of programs. Budget cuts ensued, and the
five-year plan suddenly had to be
implemented right away. Emmett
Fields replaced Benezet, a task
force replaced the select committee
and the hacking away of programs
When the dust settled, SUNYA
was a much more focused university, and many faculty members had
been retrenched. Those retrenchments would come under fire
from a legislative committee headed
by Assemblyman Melvin Miller.
Miller's report criticized SUNYA for
what it felt was unnecessary cuts.
Many faculty members who lost
their jobs were obviously highly
critical of the administration, and
some sued. One commented that
the retrenchment of a department
was to "sweep an embarrassing
mess under the rug." The contentions were that departments were
being cut for personal reasons, such
as chairmen not getting along with
faculty members.
The most dramatic case involved
the Comparative Literature Department, where chair Joseph Szoverffy
was accused of sexual bias by faculty member Judy Lcibowltz. When
the department was retrenched,
. Szoverffy sued SUNYA and SUNY
— meanwhile Llcbowitz had her
own actions going against the
former chair in a human rights case
she eventually would win.
O'Leary, who was a member of
the select committee and chair of
the task force, defended the cuts:
"All I can say is the task force was
blind about personalities. Decisions
were made independently. But you
can't grant a department immunity
because of an argument between a
chairman and faculty." Suits,
countcrsuits and complaints
wouldn't bring any of the retrenched departments back, though.
Meanwhile, Fields put the direction of SUNYA into u document
called the Mission Statement, which
would incur much criticism from
faculty and students. The purpose
was to plan the course — a much
more narrower one than originally
Major setbacks to those original
plans and even the ones in Field's
mission surfaced as the State
Education Department began to
review the doctoral programs of all
New York's universities. Here,
SUNYA found itself particularly
vulnerable — graduate programs
which were begun less than ten
years before the reviews were being
compared to the best programs in
the state. The SED decided that
English and history at SUNYA were
not good programs and cut them
out. SUNY Central decided that it
wasn't a good idea for SED to have
the power to cut programs In
SUNY, so they took them 10 court.
SUNY lost. Then it appealed, and
lost again.
And SUNYA gained nationwide
publicity for having sub-par programs in history and English.
Fields' bold claims to knock on
former Education Commissioner
Ewald Nyquist's door und demand
the programs back would not come
true, as recruitment of ton scholars
was difficult because of the negative
After Fields went home to Dixie
to take over Vanderbilt University,
O'Leary became acting president
and Chemistry's doctoral program
felt the SED blade. Immediately, he
set up a committee to review all programs on campus, declaring that
SUNYA should be the one to
review its own programs. They say
bad luck comes in threes — and
after the retrenchments and the
Ph.D. losses came a stoppage of
psychology experiments by the
State Health Department — more
negative publicity.
After a year of searching for a
new president, it was decided that
SUNYA should take someone from
their own backyard — Vince
O'Lcary. With the budgets not providing tremendous difficulties and
the crises of the middle '70's over,
things started to settle down. Grant
money, for instance, doubled in
1979, according to O'Leary. Other
doctoral programs were given
positive reviews.
As the '80's began Carey's proposed cuts sent shock waves across
the system. " A university is like a
fine wine," said O'Leary. "It has to
age." SUNY Chancellor Clifton
Wharton implored Carey to change
his mind, saying that " a university
can take many years to build, but
only a few to break down."
And SUNY's faculty union —
United University Professions —
fearing for their jobs, began to promote the university system with
radio plugs.
Central to SUNY's future arc two
factors: the smaller number of
students graduating high school,
and the economic shape of the
state, which isn't likely to get better
in the coming years.
"The state of the economy is a
very significant variable," said
Wharton. However, he would not
concede that enrollment will
definitely go down at the rate people are predicting. Rather, the
Chancellor said that an increase in
returning students might help make
up for the loss in traditional age college students. "I'm not one to say
that enrollment is going to be the
same," said Wharton. "But intelligent planning looks at all the
Wharton said that SUNY's five
year master plan is in the works and
that he expects that SUNY will progress in the decade — a typically optimistic view expected from the
Chancellor's office. "SUNY has
considerable resources," he said.
"Wc will be aiding lo help improve
the economic climate of the state. I
feel we arc making a significant
It all comes down to dollars and •
cents, however. The chancellor gave
the indication that planning would
continue as if few cuts were going to
be made; he said that to not plan
creatively would produce stagnation. But as economic conditions
gel tighter and steady enrollment Is
inn a certainty, funding may
become a year-to-year situation,
"There's no question that public
higher e d u c a t i o n is at a
crossroads," said Rich l.ccherllng,
special counsel to Mark Siegel, who
chairs ihcAssembly'shigher education Committee. "The recession undoubtedly is going (o have an effect. SUNY and CUNY and higher
education will receive a fair share of
the cuts. But the Assembly prefers
to look at it on the long range,
rather than the meat axe approach."

Republican presidential candidate Ronald Reagan
brought his campaign to Albany on March 25. His speech

SA Cover-Up
Perhaps, one of the biggest events of the year was the SA
election cover-up which occurred during last spring's SA
presidential run-off election.
Mitchell Davis, former Indian Quad assistant election
commissioner claimed he replaced 15 votes for candidate
Sharon Ward with the same number of votes for candidate
Lisa Ncwmark. He told several Newmark supporters what
he had done, and although he claimed it was a joke, they
believed him.
SA Controller Craig Weinstock, SA Internal Affairs
Chair Jim Mitchell, and Central Council member Mark
Lafayette agreed the night Newmark was elected not to inform the election commissioner of the event. Three former
SA members also concurred that evening — James CastroBlanco, Abbie Havkins, and Ron Frank.
At least a dozen other SA members would find out in
subsequent months but no one revealed the truth to
A special Presidential Commission was appointed by
Newmark for purposes of investigating those who knew
about the event and when. The Commission was then to
recommend punishments for those involved. Weinstock,
Mitchell, Lafayette, and Central Council Chair Mike Levy,
who discovered the truth in July but did not take any action, were cited as the four most responsible for the alleged
ballot stuffing. The Commission suggested they resign.
Many people on council felt all those who knew and did not
reveal the truth should also resign.
On March 19, Central Council voted to censure all council members who knew about the even. Levy, Weinstock,
Mitchcll.and Lafayette did not have to resign. The meeting
was an emotional one, with the accusscd citing the ASP
coverage of the event as sensational and one-sided.
Student reaction varied, but most were angry and disillusioned by SA. Some Council members felt the punishment
was not severe enough, while Budget Committee Chair _
Mark Borkowski resigned because he was "disgusted" with
,thc election fraud and Ncwmark's reaction to the issue.
Colonial Quad Board vice-president Pat Francomano

Student activism returned to SUNYA on November 28
and seems to hove made itself quite at home. On this particular Wednesday, close to 100 students staged an all day
sit-in outside the campus bookstore. The demonstrators
demanded immediate changes in bookstore prices and
management policies. After negotiating three hours with
nine student representatives, Folletl bookstore officials met
most of the students' requests.
They Included a reduction in notebook prices, the printing of book lists required for the upcoming semester
classes, and the sealing of sale items every two weeks.
The students were prompted by '60's activist Jerry
Rubin, who spoke at SUNYA the nighl before. They
recognized the need to become more Involved in University
policy and this was their first action. A Bookstore Committee was later formed, composed of students, bookstore
management, and administrators, to continually check on
the store's policies.
The activists continued lo meet and plan for the future.
, About 40 students met on December 6, talking about
various campus problems and advocated "teach-ins" to inform students about UAS, CUE, and related issues. ASU
Chair Jeremy Carlson wants "to get students involved in
running SUNYA."
SUNYA Protests
The University community reacted strongly to the situation in Iran. Feelings ranged from bitter resentment of our
involvement in Iran to fear of an unconventional war.
In November, eight Iranian students attending SUNYA
were requested to submit to a status check and a visa review
by the Albany office of the Federal Bureau of Immigration.
"It's a response but It's also a way lo cool things as far as
Iranian students demonstrating," said SUNYA Assistant
Dean for Student Affairs Paul J. Ward.
But it wasn't the Iranians who protested. On November
29, more than 100 pro-American SUNYA students
disrupted a Young Socialist Alliance meeting which was
geared to point oul the errors America made in Iran. The
Iwo sides clashed und heckled, mobbing the stage, and
arguments occurred. Matilda Zimmerman, 1980 Socialist
Workers Pary vice presidenlial candidate, called the event
' an "organized counter-demonstration."
The Ad Hoc U.S. Hands Off Iran Committee picketed
outside Albany's Chase Manhattan Bank on December 9,
urging the return of the Shah to Iran. Fifty counterdemonstrators met (he group, chanting things such as
"USA — all the way."
In an exclusive ASP feature in the December 11 issue,
two of the eight Iranian students in SUNYA talked of life in
the country, especially under the Shah's regime. "I saw corruption, a political vacuum, and an absolute dictatorship,"
remarked one of the students. The oilier studenl, admitting
his dislike for the Shah, said il would not be good lo let the
Shah return now. "I can sec il clearer from the U.S. point
of view more than Iran's though I sec the complications the
U.S. is facing."
Police Resign
In April, Albany policemen Michael Buchanan and
Richard Vita resigned from the Albany Police Force
because of personal and internal pressures. They quit
before facing departmental hearings on charges of neglect
of duty, resulting from incidents which occurred in
SUNYA's Waterbury Hall last March.
On October 24, an Albany County Court jury, after a
three-week trial, acquitted the officers on charges of grand
larceny in the first degree, robbery in the second degrees an
two petty larcencies.
The panel agreed that the defendants acted as policemen,
not criminals, when Ihey entered Ihc Alumni Quad dorm
last March 21 and 28. The officer allegedly entered the
dorm on March 21, stealing $20 from student Anthony
Lcnkicwicz and allegedly robbed student Craig Kcllam of
$60 and marijuana. The same pair apparently returned on
March 28 and stole $50 from Jay Stccnwcrlh.
Defense attorneys E. Stewart Jones and Paul E.
Cheeseman argued the officers were behaving like "Stursky
and Hutch" so they could become narc officers in the
Albany Police Department Narcotics Division. They said
the students were the criminals for illegal possession and
use of drugs.
Prosecuting attorney Dennis Acton, argued the
policeman acted without required departmental authorization for drug investigations. He believed they stole the
money and marijuana for their own benefits.
The officers still faced departmental hearing after their
acquittal. Buchanan left before because the city did not
want him to return to the force and he wanted to move
elsewhere. Vita apparently could not face the force because
of the accusations.
A wave of break-ins and scx-rclutcd crimes plagued the
downtown "student ghetto" this year, resulting in continuous assaults on women including SUNYA students living'on Alumni Quad dorms.
The area bounded by Myrtle Avenue and Bradford,
Lake, and Partridge Streets was often the scene of the attacks. The intruder became known as the "Pine Hills
Toucher" because he sexually abused or raped his victim,
The Incidents occurred between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. with
the intruder entering an apartment through an unlocked
window or door, sometimes placing cinder blocks below a
At first, the assailant was described us a black, clean
shaven male, approximately 20 years old. he was about
5'8" tall and had a slender build. But, according to Albany
Police, extensive media coverage brought out "impostcrs,"
There were several intruders roaming the Pine Hills area,
both black and white and only one or Iwo being rapists.
University reaction to the danger was Immediate. Special
sessions were offered to women on the art of self-defense.
The Off Campus Association supplied free installation of
window bolt-locks. President O'Leary initiated a Task
Force on Women's Safety, composed of students and staff,
lo evaluate existing measures. The SUNYA bus routes were
altered to provide for safer walking routes during the evening hours. The Albany Police provided continuous security
patrols of the Pine Hills area.
The incidents diminished, but did not end entirely.
Suspects were picked up continually, but the "Pine Hills
Toucher" has never actually been identified.
With the fear of war, comes the fear of conscription. But
this year, that nightmare became too real to most SUNYA
students when President Carter considered reinstating draft
registration. People fighting for peace immediately set
forth lo stop the possible legislation.
On January 27, over 150 people from the University and
Albany community held a peaceful anti-draft demonstration in downtown Albany. A newly-formed group, the
Albany Peace Coalition, sponsored the protest in hopes of
developing widespread opposition to the draft.
A few days before, local pacifists, ranging from draft age
to senior citizen status, met at the Presbyterian Church on
Slate Slrccl lo express their concerns over the probablc2reinslalemcnt of the draft. The thirty anli-war
believers stressed war as an unnecessary means for attaining
worldwide peace.
The events coniinued with draft resistors from the Vietnam era speaking to students to several more anti-draft
demonstrations, downtown, and on-campus. The Albany
Peace Coalilion sponsored a teach-in and r UNYA's own
Albany Peace Project organized parties, rallies, and
debates. On April 13, a Festival for Peace was held in Page
Hall with speakers who addressed (he anli-war, anti-draft,
and pro-peace (hemes.
March 22 was the day for advocates of peace as the first
significant anti-draft rally since the Vietnam-era was held in
Washington. Over 40,000 protestors, including SL'rlYA
students, rallied on the Capitol and listened to speakers battling the draft registration.

SUNYA Policy Protects Homosexuals

SUNYA committed to equality.

by Susan Mllllgan
After eight months of negotiations, PresidentVincentO'Leary announced Wednesday he has expanded current University policy to
include protection
on c a m p u s
regardless of sexual or affectional
According to O'Leary, "the
statement is designed to give additional strength to the University's
commitment to equality of opportunity."
Federal law does not prohibit
discrimination on the basis of sexual or affectional preferences.
The statement also provides for a
means to review and investigate
claims of Infringements of the
policy, and for means of dealing
with such grievances.
Due to federal legalities, the
policy was developed independently
of Affirmative Action, a federallyfunded organization which deals
with' discrimination complaints.
Student Housing'. Poor
by Sylvia Saunders
When Dave Lester and his three
roommates signed the lease for a second floor apartment at 159
Western Avenue, they thought it
was a bargain to get the place at
$320 per month plus utilities.
"But as soon as we moved in we
started noticing all the things we
missed when we checked the apartment in the spring. The cracks in
the wall were covered with masking
tape and painted over. The beds
and the furniture were shoddy.
There was no insulation and the
drop ceiling swayed with the wind.
The porch steps sagged and the railing was rotted to the point of
crumbling. The carpeting was worn
and the rooms needed paint all
over. I could handle the ants and
mice, but the idea of rats did bother
mc a little . . .
"Over Christmas vacation the
snow on the Hat roof thawed and
backed up from the sink-size drain.
The ceiling caved in over the kitchen and bathroom. We couldn't
go to the bathroom without an umbrella. It was like something out of
a movie in Appalachia. We had
water an inch on the floor and pails
scattered throughout the apartment. When the landlord finally
fixed it, he used a half-inch thick
tile to cover the old caved-in ceiling.
But water kept coming through.
The cockroaches loved the moisture
"When the springtime thaw
came, so did another cave-in. By
that time we just laughed about il.
It got to be a joke after awhile.
Besides, we knew it wouldn't be
long before we could gel but. We
couldn't report it because we were
in violation of the anti-grouper law
and we didn't want to split up.

at Cornell?
Do you know
someone who is?
I'm looking for
someone to

When it finally did come time to get
out, he wouldn't give me back my

"We get about sixty complaints
about landlords every semester,"
said SUNYA's Off-Campus Housing Office (OCHO) worker Judy
Schultz. She pointed to an overstuffed green looscleaf binder and
said, "We try to keep a record of
them all."
"It's hard to say exactly how
many students have problems with
their landlords," she continued,
"because by the time someone
comes here, the person feels as if
it's out of his control."
Schultz said the major problem
of off-campus housing is that
themselves in finding an apartment.
"They're afriad there won't be
enough left, because they hear thai
everyone else is looking for an
apartment. So they'll take the one
that doesn't have a back staircase or
a window in the bedroom," she
"Housing in Albany is harder to
get than in the typical college
town," according to Director of
Residences John Welty. "Out of
the whole 15,000 population of the
campus, It's only possible for a little
over 6,000 to live on campus. This
obviously creates tremendous competition for apartments in good
One Pine Hills landlord, Mrs.
Mullah, rented out her twenty units
by early March. "We rented earlier
this year than ever before," she
said. "We even had calls at
Christmas. Most of our apartments
were rented out to friends of
tenants before they were even out of
OCHO Director Frank Green
said, "There is a general housing
shortage in the whole city.
However, this Is compounded
because students crowd into such a
small area close to the bus routes."
"If students were willing to live
off the bus line," he said, "there
would be a lot more housing
available." He especially suggested
that students search in the New
Scotland Avenue section of the cily.
"For students who have cars or are
willing to use public transportation,
there's no problem," he said.
But for students who lack a car or
the patience and money for public
transportation, their only option is
to find an apartment in the Pine
Hills area around SUNYA's
downtown campus. Green said
landlords lake advantage of this demand and students arc sometimes
subjected to apathetic landlords,
high rents and poor, sometimes
unlivablc conditions.
One of the major complaints
from students is the high cost of
rent. "Apartment rents have increased in price considerably,"
Green said, "Last year the average
three bedroom anartment was $90
continued on pa^e nine
discrimination complaints. Federal
law does not prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual or affectional preferences.
SUNYA's Gay and Lesbian
Alliance with the written support of
the Albany Student Union, Affirmative Action, Central Council,
University Senate, United University Professions (UUP) and other
organizations, has been working
with O'Leary since September in attempts to secure a University policy
protecting homosexuals from
discrimination. The groups based
their grievance on the grounds of
incidents of discrimination and
harassment of homosexuals on
campus; the individuals involved
had no recourse at the time.
O'Leary stressed also that "any
policy statement is limited in its effect. Ultimately, equality of opportunity must be grounded in the
commitments and actions of individuals." O'Leary added thai he
"urged all on this campus to give
life and meaning to this policy."
O'Leary said his development of
the policy is "in reaction to a Senate
bill" urging the President to adopi
the statement to University policy.

Yet some drivers can get away
with murder, claim several sources I
spoke with.
"You get somebody who has
been here for twelve years or so and
he can skip all the stops and leave
early and never hear a word. Some
of these guys have been here so long
they forget they are working for the
This problem can be seen in the
case of one driver accused of drinking by his fellow drivers. According
to several drivers, the drunken
driver was going to be fired at the
end of the semester but was kept
on, even with his drinking problem,
because of his tenure and the need
for drivers.
"There is a wastepaper can
where, if you look in the right place
at night, you can see empty beer
bottles," reports one source. "The
garage knows all about it."
When I mentioned the possibility
of a driver drinking on the job to
Acting Supervisor Gathen, he
"I know of no drivers who drink
on the job. If I was ever able to
catch a driver drinking, he wouldn't
work here; I would fire him immediately. Neither I or my dispatcher (Art Burt) has ever been able to
catch a man intoxicated."
The driver was reported to be so
intoxicated one evening that he
took the bus out of the garage,
drove it back in, and parked it to go
home. He did not leave a word with
any of his fellow drivers that he had
done this, and his run was completely skipped.
"At least he had the sense to
know he couldn't drive," declared
one student. "It can get pretty hairy
out there on the road sometimes. It
is scary to think that he might drive
like that. I don't know what I
would d o . "
"Every night becomes party
night after I I , " stated one driver.
"I don't know how some guys
could drive like that."
The drunken driver, along with
several other drivers, has been accused by his working mates of leaving early on a regular basis. The
weekend is one of his main runs,
and his 6:50 and final Wellington
runs are, according to a source,
"always about five minutes early."
During the week, in the evening,
leaving early is a common custom
from the Wellington stop. Last
Wednesday evening I obscvered a
bus at Northern Blvd. at 12:23. It
was supposed to leave the Wellington at 12:25.
In an attempt to keep drivers on
schedule, the gargage has begun to
use a device called a Tacograph installed on all the buses, according to
acting Dispatcher Art Burt. The
device, called a Tacograph, consists
of a disk of grapli paper and a
recording pen that notes both driving speed and slops. The graph
disks arc good for twenty-four
hours, and are contained ill a locked clock device. Ii is the mechanics
responsiblily (o change these disks
every morning and deliver them to
Ihe office. The Tacograph cannot
be tampered wilh by the driver.
Although a number of them do not
work, the garage has recently
received replacement graph
Burt admitted the garage was lax
and the
on examining the graphs earlier this
semester, but said recently that they
are being examined after any complaint. However, they do not seem
to be to effective when checking to
see if a driver leaves early. The
graph itself is only about four to
five inches round, and, over a
twenty-four hour period, detecting
a bus leaving even five minutes early
would be birtually impossible.
However, the graphs will detect any
skipped runs.
The p h e n o m e n o n of the
"invisible bus" is familiar to Wellington riders in the evening, when
they wait for ten minutes for the but
that never arrives. Although the
runs are sometimes cut due to a lack
of drivers, this only appears when
drivers arc critically short. There
are almost always enough drivers on
call to fill in these runs. However,
almost daily a Wellington or Alumni bus turns up "missing" at the circle or at the Wellington according
to the published schedule. These
lapses arc often explainable, yet the
garage is generally uncooperative to
student callers.
When ihe drivers come in for
their daily break, or during a driver
change, the schedule becomes a
farce. The buses that have tlie window sign "garage" arc expected,
according lo the schedule, lo make
a smooth transition from run to
run. This rarclv works.
Although Ihe system docs work
well as a whole, there arc some personality problems.

What, may I ponder, arc the Albany police
doing lately?
I arose in a daze on Wednesday, typical of
my Albany dorm awakenings, but was startled into cognition when glancing down at a
copy of the Knickerbocker News.
Front page, lead story, full spread
headlines, reading Police 'escort' their paydates to jail, 7 arrested in vice raid.
Hmm...I read on.
Some neighborhood residents and business
people suspected 456 Delaware Ave. in
Albany was a front for a prostitution ring
several months before police began an investigation five weeks ago...a barber said
that... the school-crossing guard...an at tendent at the Mobil Service Station... "the girl
will meet you at the motel"...any service required by the customer.. .police armed with a
search warrant...pictures of 25 girls...
Holy tarnations, I believe we are living in
Victorian upstate New York.
Every few months, the police decide that
it's time for a fun lovin' bust, the warrant,
the round-up, the arrests, call the papers,
cameras, stars, a sensation. "The police are
doing their job, god bless 'em," you can
almost here the average citizen utter.
Five weeks of investigation to nab seven
hookers centered in one 'house of the evening,' oh come now! It may take five years to
locate a psychopath raping student females,
but surely these typical busts are done within
The police, motivated by puritanical interests, are confirming the idea that prostitution is a societal evil, and in colaboration
with the local media, the party becomes a
Some questions? What purpose does the
bust really have? Where does that place the
villa of Albany now? And does anyone
honestly believe that prostitution can be

a supply, and it should be as such, especially
when the arrangement harms neither participant.
Police and prostitutes have been battling

workable laws and solutions.
Though not the happiest or most ideal type
of sexual relationship, both participants are
there voluntarily and both receive some type
of positive reinforcement from their interaction. And there's nothing wrong with that.
Why don't the Albany Police spend a fiveweek probe trying to track down this Pine
Hills rapist(s)? His behavior is certainly sexually and socially inappropriate. His tactic is
force and fear, the interaction is neither
voluntary, nor rewarding for the innocent
Prostitutes are still being arrested regularly
all across the nation; many bright college
students still believe that masturbation causes
mental and emotional harm, and the state of
Virginia will still prosecute anyone committing the hideous act of oral or anal sex. A
felony yet.
It all stems right back to the governing
backbone of America which still broadcasts
that sex is naughty.
Generally, the idea that you would like to
be in somebody's arms is anathema to a rigidcommercial civilization.
If you can screw when you so desire, then
maybe you won't listen to the president. If
you can be free where you live, nobody can
tell you what to do. The way to tell people
what to do is to make them ashamed of what
they've got between their legs and how they
want to use it. Make them guilty of it.
Stereotypes about sexual behavior, once
established in the medical and social world,
prove very difficult to remove because of
Iheir vested interest in the status quo.
The creation of a specialized, despised,
and punished role of the prostitute keeps the
bulk of society pure and pleased.

Bad Campaigners
To the Editor:
We are writing to complain of an incident
which occurred recently in connection with
the SA elections. As freshmen, we decided to
get involved in .this election, and started
working for the candidate of our choice in
the vice-presideniial race. Part of this work
involved hanging posters in different dorms.
On the first night of the election, we heard
that many of the posters on Indian Quad had
been torn down, so we went to replace them.
In one of ihe dorms we met one of Frank
Bailman's supporters, who informed us lhat
il would be useless to hang a poster there,
since it was Bailman's hall, and everybody
who lived there would be voting for him. We
replied that we would hang it anyway, and
take our chances. We were then told that it
would probably be ripped down.
Out of curiousity, we returned ten minutes
later, and, sure enough, the poster was no
longer on the bulletin board. Across Ihe hall,
we saw, through the open door of thesupporler's suileroom (which, incidentally, is
also Frank Bailman's suileroom) the poster
lying crumpled on lop of the trash can.
We are very disappointed and shocked that
ihis type of thing could happen in what we
had assumed would be a fair, honest, and
open election. All ihe candidates should be
allowed equal chances for exposure, whelher
they are on an opponent's "home turf" or
not, and we are distressed that Ihis is not the
case. The ASP may have deemed Frank Baitman Ihe "moral" candidate, but the same

me how he feels on issues even when he knew
that I would disagree with him. I became scry

Regardless of who is elected, I hope that in

made their choice and campaign accordingly.

Maybe I'm tired. Of production nights. Of arguments. Of
constant Rat dinners. Of falling asleep in classes I feel
privileged to attend. Of not being able to read a novel since
August. Of being away from h o m e . Of having a friend who
has become a sometimes friend. Of not having the time to
have fun. Of school. Of ASP. Of life.
But I'll miss it. I'll miss it when I'm gone, when it's all
frayed newspapers, and ghostly faces, not quite right
names. I'll remember the people. I must. They have done
something to me up on the third floor. I feel like Dorothy
leaving Oz. All this sentimental stuff makes me sick. Life
goes on. Who cares?
But life doesn't always go on, you leave a place, and you
leave a pari of yourself behind. You leave people and you
leave a pari of yourself with them. And you take a part of
them too. You affect things; they affect you.
Aspects has been an accomplishment for me. That I could
work with such talented people is a gift from life.
I'm yelling nostalgic again. It's my schizophrenia. Well,
I'm no good al being noble or gracious so I'll just bow out of
the show and move o n . I love Aspects, though, despite
everything, I'm a lousy sentimentalist, I guess. Goodbye

More than anything else. SLINYA is the
classic public institution, reflecting the slate
government's preponderance for paperwork,
process, and programming; and its general
ambivalence to people, quality, and cohesion.
The committee-type decision-making within
the state too often yields policy that is seriously
confused and fragmented. The state
egislature has been an albatross that the
University system has been unable to influence
since the belt-lightening politics of the 70's
took hold. Unfortunately, power and money
are two premium commodities that students
desperately lack as a group. I remember Hugh
Carey, sounding not unlike Marie Antoinette,
advise a group ol students protesting last
year's tuition hike to "go pick apples." While it
is true that Rockefeller's build-by-orgasm attitude is better off burled, it doesn't justify the
low priority that education is being assigned
now that dollars are scarce and the accumulated layers of bureaucratic fat are being
trimmed. Ultimately, Ihe student suffers. It's
sad when the institution that awards him his
degree is drastically different from the one in
which he enrolled eight semesters ago.
iimat emerges from the legislative machine
under this type of stress is policy that would be
laughable were we not so often the object of
the joke. The only thing that grows in this type
of environment is paperwork and administrative departments. Why, you may ask,
does Syracuse University, a private school, gel
a domed stadium courtesy of the Empire Slate
while we can't get a fleldhouse or a Chemistry
Ph.D.? Hell, our football team is better than
Division I Syracuse's anyway. . .Again, talk
of program cuts drifts up from the Capitol. It's
no wonder Governor Carey's pleas for alumni
donations go largely Ignored — aren't people
fed up with the way their lax dollar is spent?
Of course, pragmatically speaking, we have
received a pointed education In the endless
distributed with less enthusiasm and more accounting. The potential of the SUNY system
should not be sold short. On May 25th. there
will be 21011 good reasons for expanding the
state's commitment to quality education.
Without the opportunity to gel the good, inexpensive education we deserve, how many of
us would be able to be here? The lime has
come again foi the slate to recognize, nurture,
and promote the vast resource of individual
talent it has in its students. Albany State can be
a key playei in thai effort, With its numerous
special programs and advantages, such as its
proximity to the stale Capitol, its varied media
and the upstate Dippikill recreation area, it oilers students a multitude of routes to developing their minds. This Institutional atmosphere
has provided a contrast by which we have
come to appreciate the value of the people
around us.
Hopefully, the state will show foresight in
alloting funds in the future. Those ol you
returning to New York City next week have
the opportunity to view some recent
bureaucratic spending firsthand. You might
want to take advantage of the twenty-seven
urinals the Thruway Authority saw lit to Install
at the Slualsburg rest stop. Actually, they're
about as appropriate a lestiment as there is to
where high-level governmental decision making takes place.
Just as the SUNY system must rise to the
challenge of adequately providing for each individual student in the coming years, so must
we meet ihe challenge ol providing for
ourselves enough to preserve our Individuality
in an increasingly monolithic world. With each
passing day, the'value of individual human
freedoms seems to become more and more
subordinate to economic interesls. Willi fifty
Americans dying a slow death In Iran for Exxon, Mobil, and Texaco, one need not be
especially perceptive to recognize that human
life is cheap when measured against profit. Institutions have grown to Ihe point where they
cannot deal with anything so minute as one

to New York City seeking a career in acting.
He received a scholarship to the Alvin Ailey
American Dance Center and expanded his
dancing skills. He was casi in plays off' Broadway and did regional theatre at the McCarter Theatre in New Jersey and the
American Theatre in Washington. D.C. •
There were commercials, a part In a
"Kojak" episode, hosting public television's
"Black Theatre in America" program and a
role In the movie Myra Breckenrldge.
In his first Broadway show. Tlie Poison
Tree, he played a deranged schizophrenic.
When Barton walked into an audition for
the Broadway production ol Timbuckiu. he
was given the part of M'Ballah by director
Geoffory Holder without saying a word.
Barton was on Broadway for almost a year
and then went on the show's national lour until 1978.

"Now. 1 feel 1 have more of an artistic statement to make as a dnector," Barton said.
Interested in attending Yale for a Masters of
Fine Arts In directing, he called Albany Stale
seeking his transcript, Albert Asermely, head
of the Division of Performing Arts, offered
Barton credit to complete his Bachelors
degree if he would direct a play.
Barton explained that he chose Killing Time
because it is a "chronicle. It's history that a lot
of us have lived and can make a comment o n .
It's sort of cliche but you really have to know
where you've been to know where you're going and this play does that."
The play Is composed of scenes, each of
which examine a period In American history
between 1865 and the 1970's. It displays the
* ^ ^ black
and. tragedy
Americans In each lime period.
Barton bridges the scenes by using sound
collages. As characters exit, they see others
from the next time period entering. "It's a look
forward and a look back all the way through,"
Barton said
When Barton was In Killing Time at the
Village Gate In 1976 the final scene on the
politics of Black organizations In the early
1970's left the audience uncomfortable.
"This play ended right where we were. The
statement made was too close to the time we
were In.
Barton thinks the play will be more timely
now since contemporary audiences can be ob
jeclive about It, looking back,
"I think the main thing that happens with all
these people (characters) Is that they survive,
Barton said.
He admits the characters look to the past
and contends the play is optimistic since they

But Lou Is older now (the album cover Is'

t never ceases to amaze me. The PR
geniuses who package movies never
seem to have any Idea of who they're
packaging Ihem for. This is definitely the case
with ffolkes, which Is being advertised as being
basically a James Bond movie. Which It isn't,
despite starring Roger Moore. Nonetheless,
the posters show Roger Moore as a giant
straddling an oil rig with beautiful women climbing up his legs as he holds a cat and a champagne glass, totally unaware of them. The
radio ads say "jfolkes . . . he doesn't need a
license to kill."
Jim Dixon
None of this has anything to do with the
movie in the theatre, ffolkes is not an action
movie, if the definition of an action movie Is a
film which uses large amounts of violence to
hold the audience, ffolkes would be better sold
as a suspense thriller, which is more In line
with what it really is. There is some action, but
not enough to please most James Bond fans.
The title cut, "Growing Up In Public," is a
look at people. Lou tells about all kinds of
people and how they deal with us and how
we're always caught in the middle, left to deJ e n d ourselves, "with our pants down."

One of the most delightful things about this
(llm is, believe it or not, Roger Moore. Though
1 still refuse to concede any acting ability on
Moore's part, he's good as ffolkes. Maybe
because ffolkes Is so different from Bond he
seems to put more into it. ffolkes is a
mlsogynyst, first of all. Feminists.may be offended, but 1 found this easier to stomach than
the recent trend of having 007 such a condescending playboy that everyone in the
theatre's offended, ffolkes is more honesl
about his feelings, ffolkes also isn't a wlseass.
In fact he has no sense ol humor at all. Like
mos! people with no sense of humor, he's actually funny if you stop lo think aboul It.
Moore pulls it off well, and I was Impressed.
The film's biggest problem is that ffolkes is
..off-screen too much In the early part ol the
movie, where the film spends much of its time
developing the hijackers who aren't all that in^ K s t l n g . The hijackers are predominantly
Jierican, and the writer is British, and the
lull Is a lot of dialogue written In cliches,
pthony Perkins gets some genuinely bad
"Welcome to our little clambake, A d lal," for example.)
Jnce past this, director Andrew V ,

Idillon of pitting the hero against the clock,
"here's a bomb Involved of course — would

•Interestingly, McLaglen Is best-known as an
Jlon director, whose last couple of films have
len macho epics like 77ie Lasl Hard Men and
lie Wild Geese. His films are usually rated R
i d are bloody as hell, ffolkes Is rated PG,
there is> Isn't all that explicit. Not until the
climax does he pull out the stops. When he
does it's exciting and well-done. (The performance of ffolkes' commandos should really bring out some envy in Ihe Joint Chiefs of Staff.)
ffolkes also features a good supporting performance by James Mason, whom I've always
liked, and top-calibre photography by Tony
Imi, a British cinematographer I've never
heard of, but who's good, ffolkes is a generally
entertaining and well-produced film, whose
faults are easy to overlook. (Except (or a couple o( shots done in miniature that look it and
one terrible special effects explosion that looked pitiful. On the other hand, there are some
excellent special effects to balance it out.)
This looks to be a summer of action movies
and the like, but if most of them aren't worse
than ffolkes, I doubt loo many movie-goers
will complain.
Expected on the screen this summer are a
number of westerns, including The Mountain
Man, with Charlton Heslon; The Long Riders,
which stars David, Keith and Robert Carradine, Dennis and Randy Quald, and James
and Stacey Keach; and Tom Horn, with Steve
McQueen. Burl Reynolds will be seen In
Rough Cut and Smokey and the Bandit II.
Robert Redford will play a progressive prison
warden In Brubuker. Clint Eastwood will continue his trend of self-parody In Bronco Billy.

I: Contrary to popular opinion, the human race will survive.
It has to. There just exists some Illogical assumption that for
some unknown reason, mankind will continue. It's enough
of a vagueness for Individuals to press on with blind hope, for
blind hope leads to Ideas, ideas solve problems, and problems can disappear.
2 : How do we know this?
1 : Well, like the birds that move through the sky for winter's
retreat, and like the snows that follow and are followed by
the following springs, the returning birds march back to victory, and it feels as if the conquering of winter was equal to
the survival of the human race.
2 : But there Is a beauty in winter itself, as well as everything
in life that we can touch, see, feel, imagine, or believe In. So
the survival of man means the survival of all. For beauty may
exist outside of us, but we have the power to destroy it.
1 : It is not so much that we who are alive will in our own
small way pass through this life, for all people do that, but
rather that we recognize life as a boundless wonder whose
images take us up upon a magic carpel to the land of
dreams. To destroy that wonder, to even attempt it, goes
against every natural law that ever created itself mil ol the
ways of reality. Fearing nothing and loving everything, this
life demands that we put aside our facades of self-pity and
put on the invisible masks of spiritual bliss. Our Joyous vibrations r.uliate from the core of our values and dissimulate the
"live force."

about ourselves. This is an Interface that all must face
which separates the real and the unreal.

2 : But contrary to popular opinion, the human race will survive. I just feel it in the wind, in the thoughts.of my tomorrows and my grandchildren's kin, in the boughs of time, the
crests of the waves of progress, the ends of the very world.
Call me not a rank optimist, bui a realist. For if you can call
me that, then you can believe that.
1; Without regard for the song, the player must carry the

poor stature swept up in a confining stable, packaged, and

game on any level, only victims of our own hearts and
minds We cannot rely on the sources of so-called strength
that deplete the world with destruction any1 dread and war.
These are not the things to rely o n . hut rather things to rely
on only as a sort of permanent balance, an issue lo fight, a
cause to rally against, a disease to cure. Rather we must rely
on constants, such as goodness (I should like to think it is)
and the need for brotherhood and love which makes us men
and women and not fancy apes.
2 : Take no heed of the call of this world, for only the wind
brings with it the rain and the snow. The wind seeks no home
as it comes to rest upon us all, both large and small, imparting all it has to offer, asking only to be heeded as a friend instead of a foe. And the wind leaves again, whether you've
befriended it or not, whether you've heeded It or not,
whether you've been a victim of it or a lover of it. And we exist with Ihe wind, between its currents, within them, and we
don't see it but we know it's there and that docsn't-scare us.

I am taking this opportunity to pass on some notes 1 have
gathered while travelling, for I believe that even Arthur and
Hope Frommer failed to stress some important information
in their biggie, Europe on Ten Dollars a Day (now up to fifteen dollars a day).

The trains in Spain move slower than a grounded plane.
and when they did move quickly, they were full of soldiers
and there was no room to sit. You can pay extra for a fastei
train, but they only leave at certain times and the schedules
can get very confusing. That's why in Spain one should allot
oneself some extra emergency time. 1 left about two days
leeway for stalled, or late trains, Such preparation kept my

considered when choosing the InterRail as my means of
travel. Usually the country you're interested In travelling
through offers a pass for train rides, but 1 am not familiar with
all the facts concerning costs and length of these.
Hitchhiking In France is a luxurious change from stuffy
train cars. Kind people pick up American students and frequently engage in conversation about crime in New York
obviously this occurs when it's evident you're American 1
remember one time (ailing asleep in the back seat while my
friend Diane tried -desperately to stay awake and chat up
front with the driver, 1 wasn't woken up until we had arrived
-it out destination. The gentlemen even offered us some
lunch he had in a bag. and told us to be careful when we
"[-'aire du Hitch-Hiking" again. Telling hltchers to be careful
is always necessary, although the incident of crime on the
roads in European countries is so slim compared to that of
the U.S., where 1 would avoid hitching even in a one horse
Another time Diane and 1 were picked up by Mark and
Michelle as we left Belgium for Luxembouig. This young
couple, dressed in jeans and driving a battered-up Volvo, invited my Iriend and I to a wedding in the country. We got
there and realised it was a posh party with the (our of us
dressed like stable hands of the seventeenth century manor
house. The bride and groom made us leel welcome as we
dined on pate, champagne, caviar, and pastries. It is wild
how hitching in Europe promotes many memorable experiences, while elsewhere it is not always the case. On the
highways, the truckers In Fi.it or Merecedes rigs stop and
pick up hitchers because they enjoy the company, even if the
liitchers do not speak a word of the native tongue. You may
even gel lucky and get taken l o lunch at a truckstop, where
the food is often better than a home rooked meal.
On a less positive note are the trains in Italy, ' l i n y resembled diners on wheels, packed with passengers eating Iheir
way down the line. The whole system appeared to be so
haphazardly organized I imagined the ticket clerks saying,
" O h , you wanna go to Koine? Well, maybe (rain arrive soon,
1 say. Maybe." When ihe train finally does pull into the station, finding out the track number becomes anothei ordeal
One time my girlfriends Steffi, Amy, and Karen, were on a
train bound for Florence (Flrenze), I mention this Incident
( because It deals with a situation quite common among nonItallan speaking travellers. Steffi decided lo roam the train
just as It departed from one of its stops along the way to
Flrenze, Suddenly she realized her car had detached from
I h e others, ready lo move on to parts unknown. The conductor never told her to run for it, but she did, Racing madly,
Steffi looked like an outlaw as she tried to hop onto the moving train. This woman made a mistake by not asking if her car
and all the others were headed for Florence. Sometimes the
individual cars are not marked on the outside with the
familiar white destination signs In this event, it becomes
necessary to ask, otherwise you may go to Sl( ily while your
friends roll on to Rome.
Before describing the United Kingdom, where 1 also lived
for a semester, I wish to remark briefly aboul Swiss, Austrian,
and Yugoslavian trains. The Swlss.trains ran as smoothly as a
Swiss watch. Most of the people In Switzerland spoke German, but the French-speaking Swiss I encountered were
helpful in finding me a warm car where I could pull the seat
out into a bed. It took a lot of effort to pretend I was In a hotel
room when three other people were lying next to me, some
with their feet in my face. Often trains are so crowded you
will be forced to lay out on the floor as 1 once did, gasping
from the foul smell of Gaulois cigarette butts. One thing 1
noticed In Europe was that everyone seemed to smoke, and
they indulged excessively aboard trains.
Travelling through Yugoslavia on a 42-hour train ride
could never be considered a pleasant experience. 1 sat next
to my friend Karen and bitched to her through the entire
journey. Otto, a Yugoslavian student educated in Australia,
Irritated me for at leasl thirty hours by smoking. Rules for no
smoking are not enforced. It's a tough-luck-Charlie kind of
feeling for the non-smoker on these occasions. A woman
who would not offer us any food had the nerve to put her
head on Karen's shouldei and go to sleep. I looked more
outraged than Karen because this woman also never stopped
talking until her eyes closed. All this would not happen In
Great Britain.
There's a story about smoking on British trains and it
begins with a cabin of three fine men sitting in a non-smoking
car. Soon a lunatic enters and begins jumping wildly, trying
to avert the men's eyes from their London Times. Next he
starts ripping and shredding the British Rail seats and
shouting crazy words. Not an eyelid blinks. He pulls away
their papers, Nothing, He slaps someone. No response.
Frustrated, he reaches for a cigarette and goes to light up.
"Sorry," the men say, "No smoking please."
The British Rail is another efficient system I encountered
after those of France, Switzerland, and Germany Schedules
(timetables) are easy to read and there are usually no delays.
Bui, like in most British homes, not too much attention Is
placed on healing the cars and I wonder If this Is reverse in
Crossing the channel by hovercraft or gnlng to Ireland by
boat can he plenty of fun — on two dramamines. If the water
is too rough, boats can be postponed or cancelled. However,
I had the rotten luck lo be on a rocky ride on my way to
Dublin for Saint Patty's day, 1 don't think I ever left the ladies
Though such uncomfortable situations do arise, for the
most part excursions throughout the U.K. have been highly
rated by those fortunate enough lo travel overseas. Friends
who have hitched have been feasted In Wales, housed In
Scotland, and enlertained in Ireland.
So, do you still want to go to Europe? Since you'll spend
half your time away In some mode of transportation, It is Important as a prospeclive traveller that you gain some
enlightenment regarding the many possible obstacles. If you
now know to look for fold out beds on trains, act weird to
discourage other passengers from crowding your cabin, or
close the lights and curtains and feign sleep, then ypu are
ready to hit the road. y

To Ihe Editor:
Unfortunately there must be a candidate
who loses in a Student Association. Unfortunately, because no on loses in a Student
Association election, students merely select a
platform which is more akin to the way they
would like to see policy implemented.
Gary Schatsky, Jane Sidoti, Jeremy
Carlson, Jim Castro-Blanco, Frank Baitman,
and Dean Betz, thank you. Thank you for bringing up ideas which students wanted to
hear. You too made a promise to students.
You promised them that you would continue
to Tight for their rights and students supported you for that; don't let them down.
There are many who say SA is a clique. It's
not a clique if you students along wilh those
people who supported you get involved. Student Association is in need of all Ihe help it
can get. You arc the force which drives it.
To those who hate SA, it's time to make
your feelings known. Sue Gold has promised
to open SA up and you should be at the head
of the line waiting to open it up. It's a new
a d m i n i s t r a t i o n which has made some new
promises and it's your opportunity to
become part of it.
To those who have worked for winning
campaigns, remember, utilize all your
resources. Your candidate promised we
students an opportunity to be heard; force
her to keep that promise.
There is much work that needs to be done
and many accomplishments which have yet
to take form but we can do it if we work
together. Our strength lies in our numbers as
united students. Let Student Association
work for you next year with your help,
guidance, and your support.
Upwards and Onwards,

brought up Ihe fact that internship guidelines
were sent back to committee because students
realized it would directly affect the standings
of such programs as Medical Technology and
Social Welfare.
This campus is very progressive, in much of
its legislation because it allows students to
have a meaningful input in the process.
Students don't merely contribute*in councils
and committees but they help to actively
evaluate legislation on the Senate floor as
well.To alienate student participation, by not
allowing them to speak on the body which
supervises their work, is unethical. Students
have two options in pursuit of changes on
this campus. They can work within the
system, as they currently d o , or they can
work outside of the system as they were fore-'
ed to do in the sixties. The options are clear

Help! Helpl
On Wednesday, May 7, 1980 the raculty
body, by two votes, decided not to allow the
elected student senators to take office as of
July I , 1980. It is a misnomer to say that
faculty decided the question o f student
representation because faculty members
didn't have an opportunity to even debate the
question fully.
Students are blamed for using parliamentary procedure; however, it was a faculty
member who called for a quorum when the
motion for a 1-year extension for student
rights was on the floor. Students are blamed
for caucusing before University Senate
meetings; however, it was the faculty
members who came armed to prevent student
representation on the Senate.
" We don't think the faculty spoke Wednesday. We think that a small minority of faculty members, unhappy with their lackluster
performance at Senate meetings, was fighting
back in the only means they knew, denial of
open expression.
Blamed For Caring
For the first time in twelve years, students have been voted off the
University Senate by faculty members (114-112). One-has to wonder
what students did to deserve this tally. It couldn't be apathy; student
senators show up at three times as many meetings as their faculty
counterparts. It couldn't be lack of accomplishments; student
senators have generally been effective in guaging student opinion and
translating it into coherent voices on the floor.
It could be that some faculty members are tired of having to deal
with such competence. The University Senate is SUNYA's system of
governance: it creates policy which effects all the factions of the
university. There is no question faculty members deserve to be on the
Senate. They work here. Students go to classes and live here, and they
too should have a voice in decisions which affect them. It's only
That argument alone is so powerful that all excuses given by faculty
opponents fade in comparison. One gets the feeling that students are
being punished for being well-organized and competent. Or perhaps
for shortcomings of the faculty.
When student voices were being quelled in the '60's, rebelling
against and attempting to tear down the system became popular. It
was not realistic, however, and working through the system was the
viable alternative accepted by all factions. Now that students voices
have been muffled again, where do we go when there is a problem with
University policy? After proving that they could act responsibly for
twelve years in an equal forum with faculty, why must students have
to fight to be heard once again?
If the faculty would like their own independent voice, a suggestion
is to form their own association — but when it comes to University
policy, it is only fair that students have participation. It is the only
way Senate can retain integrity as a truly representative policy-making
President Vincent O'Leary, who recently pledged support for student participation, has called a faculty meeting to discuss the matter
next week. It is essential that all faculty members attend this meeting.
To Ihe 112 members who voted for the students, here is a heartfelt
word of thanks, Let's hope that many of these other faculty members
care enough about this university lo show up and work towards reversing their regrettable decision.

were there and I'm sure you'll never
lorget them either. And it you do
lorget, it will be no great loss

again. I just want to thank you lot

Rugby Club
Takes Second
By Mike Nnclcrio
This past Saturday, the Albany
State rugby club took an impressive
second place at the Ithaca Invitational Tournament. This strong
showing came one week after the
Danes dropped a disappointing
14-13 loss to Colgate.
The Danes opened up the Ithaca
tournament Saturday morning
against the host team, Ithaca. From
the outset Albany had a bit of difficulty getting started, but in the
end the Danes came away with an
18-3 victory.
The Danes second match of the
day came against Springfield — an
extremely lough squad. But the
Danes were ready for the contest,
and handed Springfield a slinging

Albany put everything together.

impressive, with the Albany scoring

and many in attendance felt that the

However, tile Danes received some
questionable calls from the referees,
who admitted later that the had call

game ended with the Danes going
down to a 4-0 setback.

The men's volleyball team was

May 9, 1980
Not too many things are constant on the ASP, especially personnel. More so, section editors tend to come and go. The work load is
heavy, the pressure is sometimes great and, after a time (often a short
time) some editors decide that they've had enough.
Well, for the last two years, there is one thing that has been constant — Paul Schwartz.
After three semesters as Sports Editor (and one as Associate), Paul
is giving up his post. He'll still do some coverage for the ASP, but
he'll primarily write for a local newspaper.
The sports scene fs a changing thing also (especially at a relatively
small school like Albany), and Paul has done his best to stay on top
of it, and bring it to us, the students, in the best possible way he
. knows — through efficiency, organization, and that knack of doing
things that comes only from experience.
When the Great Dane football team went to the NCAA semi-finals
in 1977, Albany head football coach Bob Ford remarked that the
Seligson-Schwartz duo spent as much time in the football office as
the coaches, preparing for the game.
When the Albany varsity basketball team went to Danville, Kentucky in 1979 and Potsdam in 1980 for the NCAA regional playoffs,
Paul was there, not only as a reporter, but also as a top Dane fan.
Many speak of the apathy that SUNYA students have towards
athletics. Well, to coin a cliche, Paul Schwartz doesn't have an
apathetic bone in his body, and he's tried to transfer his enthusiasm
about Albany sports to us, the students, through his writing.
Wait a minute. Listen to what the people that Paul has worked
with have to say:
"Paul falls into a long line of people who have worked in the ASP
sports arena who have worked above and beyond."
"He's just a touch of class."
— Albany Athletic Director Hob Ford
"I think Paul is an outstanding young man."
"1 wish all sportswritcrs were like him."
— Albany head basketball coach Dick Sauers
"1 think the .-1S/3 has never had as comprehensive coverage of all
teams as they've had this year. . .due to Paul's intense coverage of
all athletic events."
, , ,
.. ,,. , , .
,. ,,.
— Sports Information Director Gary Swilling
Paul has taught us, the students, an awful lot. I've learned things
like how to lay out a page and how to write a lead, bul as students
and, more importantly, Albany State sports fans, I think Paul has
shown us class, pride, and what student apathy definitely is not.
So Paul, as you branch out into Ihc lifestyle you so desire, I know
that on Tuesdays and Fridays, when I pick up the ASP at lunch or
dinner and look at the back page, something might be missing — that
Schwurtz-ncss. But, hopefully, it'll still be there somehow.
Well, when it comes down to it, I guess the guys front AnheuserBusch said it best: Paul, this one's for you.
— By the way, Paul Schwartz, like many of you, is seeing this for
the first time, and had nothing to do with its production. — F.d. _

A Lot To Remember And Feel Good About
By Paul Schwartz
I'm sure he's forgotten it by now,
but there's no way I have. You see,
it really didn't mean all that much.
It was just after last year's AlbanyIthaca football game — the one on
ABC-TV — and the Dane's coach,
Bob Ford, was basking in the incredibly hard-fought victory.
I went over to congratulate him,
and he smiled a tired but satisfied
smile, and said, "You know, you
guys worked as hard for this as we
Then I smiled. That made rne feci
good. And if there's one way to
describe my three year association
with Ford and another coach —
Dick Saucrs — and both the foolball and basketball teams, and all
the ASP stuff, it's that it made me
feel good.
OK, I realize that's not really,
true. I felt lousy sometimes loo.
Like when 1 had an 18-hour bus
ride from Kentucky to Albany to '
grumble over a one point Dane loss.
Or when I was forced to sit and
watch as that Ithaca team gol

But mostly, It's been satisfying,
and after covering those two sports
for a few years, there are some
things that I've gotten from them:
• There was Ford walking with us
around King Point's beautiful campus, calmly explaining his feelings
on his team's 14-8 loss in the first
game of last season. That taught me
something about Ford.
• There was Sauers saying "this
team continues to surprise me"
after almost every game this year,
and then calling the Dane's 21-6
season "my most surprising team."

Albany Sports: Accomplishments,
by Bob Bellaflore
"It was sort of a mixed year."
T h a t ' s what Albany State
Athletic Director Bob Ford said
about the 1979-80 Great Dane
sports season.
" I think we had some,great accomplishments and some frustrations," said Ford, noting the performances of the coaches and
athletes as commendable. But Ford
considered the off-the-field aspects
of intercollegiate athletics, namely
" a loss of resources," as the major
cause of the frustration.
1979-80 certainly was a mixed
year for Albany State sports. There
were occasions when Dane squads
were considered among the best in
the nation. Then something would
happen (like an upset or a drubbing
at the hands of an arch-rival) and
Albany would drop out of
everyone's minds. Other teams
weren't even considered worthy of
serious consideration ("rebuilding"
it's called), and then comes the surprise — a winning season or just a
few great perfomances against top
In all sports, though, there is that
one great equalizer — the won-loss
record. With six contests remaining
on the schedule, the 26 Albany
teams have posted a collective
record of 208-143, with 6 ties.
National recognition — two
words that plague small college
coaches from coast to coast. Take
out the second word of that term
"championship," and the eyes of
those coaches light up with the
dreams of what could be. Two
Dane squads received their highest
mid-season national rankings this
year. The two "big time" sports
(football and basketball) made it to
the top 10 in their respective nationwide polls.
Severely hurt by the graduation
of both the offensive and defensive
lines, the Dane football team, according to Ford (also head football
coach), lacked great speed, great
quickness, team strength, and the
great passing attack necessary to
realize the goal that the coach feels
every team has — that national
The big pre-scason surprise for
Ford was the returns of premier
defensive tackle Steve Shoen
(Capitol District Player of the Year
in 1977), defensive end Eric
The Year In Review
Singlctary, and halfback Sam
Haliston. All had taken a year off
for various reasons, but were now
back, much to the pleasure of the
Dane staff.
For the Danes, the name of the
game was defense. Albany refused
to yield the goal line for the first
two games, shutting out Hobart
(10-0) and Southern Connecticut
State (20-0). Against Brockport,
Albany's "bend but not break"
philosophy paid off, as the Golden
Eagles netted 313 total yards, but
could only muster 6 points. The
Danes went 11 quarters without giving up a point.
Next came Buffalo, and sweet
revenge for Albany against the
Bulls (who, by beating the Danes
15-8 in 1978, knocked them out of
playoff consideration) with a 40-12
victory. Brooklyn College followed,
and was treated with similar
disregard, and were the victims of
the third Dane shutout, 56-0.
Thus, the first part of Albany's
season ended — the easy part. The
next two games would make or
break the Dane dream of an NCAA
playoff bid.
The Norwich Cadets; second nationally in total offense (488.1 yards
per game); second nationally in
scoring offense (39.1 points per
game); top rushing offense in
America, Division III (398.3 yards
per game); all behind an offensive
line that averaged 230 pounds per
man. Irresistable force meets immovable object. Ranked, fourth in
the East before the game, Albany
improved that to fourth nationally
(third in the East) after the comefrom-behind 28-25 victory over the
Cadets. Ithaca was waiting. . .and
ready. Boy, were they ready.
Several Danes were hurt in the
Norwich game, but several players
do not 40 points make, and Albany
was sent reeling 46-6, the worst loss
in the seven-year history of Albany
State varsity football. Ithaca would
go on to win the national championship.
From then on, it was downhill for
the Danes, who fell to Fordham and
Springfield back-to-back by scores
of 35-28,and 31-0, respectively. The
Albany dream was broken, with
their final record at 6-3.
Albany's other source of national
recognition athletically was in
basketball, where head coach Dick
Saucrs was embarking on his 25lh
season in that position.
Two things awaited Sauers — one
he liked, one he did not: A new
SUNYA divisional arrangement
which the coach felt could exclude a
deserving team from a playoff berth
was the latter. The good news was
that guard Winston Royal (a key
performer who sat the 1978-79
season out in order to captain the
Dominican Republic national team
in the Pan-Am Games) was returning to the Albany line-up.
The season opener against Kings
College of Pennsylvania saw the
Danes win, 79-69, behind guard
Rob dune's team season high 29
points. After taking the next four
contests (including two SUNYAC
games), Albany lost to Stony Brook
in the opener of that team's invitational tournament.
In front of a literally shoulder-toshoulder crowd in University Gym,
the top ,two ranked Division III
hoop squads in the state (the Bears
were first) squared off for 45
minutes of tense, dramatic, basketball that a master of suspense
couldn't have mapped out better.
After a missed Pete Stanisfi free
throw with 13 seconds left in over-
Another win brought Albany to
Oneonta, where the Danes hadn't
been victorious since 1971. The
eighties held nothing new, and the
Red Dragons upset Albany, 63-62
in overtime. Division III power
Hartwick handed the Danes their
second consecutive loss, 71-63.
Potsdam and Plattsburgh were
the only obstacles to a Dane
SUNYAC playoff shot. Albany
won them both, 88-86,and 73-68,
Despite getting third in the conference championships, Albany
received a bid to the NCAA Northeast Regional in Potsdam.
After beating a powerful St.
Lawrence five in the opening
round, 75-66, Albany fell apart in
the last seven minutes of the championship game- rubber match with
Potsdam, and was eliminated,
"That was the toughest one of
all," said Saucrs. But he was still
satisfied with his squad's seasonal
performance. "The team did what
it had to do when it needed to do it,
and that's the sign of a good team."
With a final record of 21-6 (the
most Albany wins since 1961), it's
difficult to disagree.
Albany's junior varsity basketball team was a big surprise. Coached by Steve Kopp, the Danes
romped to a 16-4 record and the
highest winning percentage of any
men's sport, despite quittings, injuries, and tragedy. The jayvee's
two top players, Mike Gaines and
Mike Gatto, are top candidates for
next season's varsity.
The 1979 soccer season was one
that could be termed "frustrating."
Finishing at 6-5 with I tic, head
coach Bill Schieffelin felt that a
poor recruiting year and key injuries left Albany with an inexperienced learn facing a demanding
schedule which included three Division I squads.
"Those are the biggest factors
right there," said Schieffelin in
reference to the causes of his team's
record. "Some of our youngsters
just weren't experienced enough to
play against our competition," he
Of those five losses, four were by
one goal and the one that wasn't
(3-1 to Binghamton) could've easily
been," said Schieffelin.

time, Potsdam rushed the ball upcourt, and Maurice Woods, short
jumper, made the score 70-68,
Potsdam. Bear guard Ed Jachim
stole the inbounds pass, icing the
Potsdam victory.
Wins over Oneonla, Cortland,
and Utica brought Sauers' career
victory total to 399. With the 70-56
defeat of Pittsburgh came number
400 for Sauers, making him only
the fourth Division III coach to
reach that plateau.
