Women Booters Net Opener With Reservations
by Amy Kanlor
Even when the Albany State
women's soccer team beat the Siena
Stings, 5-1 in the home opener last
Thursday, head coach Amy Kidder
and, her team held reservations
about the celebration.
"We didn't play as well as we did
during the pre-season," Kidder
said. But compared to the Danes,
who earned a 6-3-2 record in 1979,
"we're a 100 percent better club,"
she remarked. "This year we have
to tighten the defense, continue the
strong offense and take good
percentage shots."
It was that defensive combination, especially up the middle,
which worked so well for two Dane
scrimmages against Williams and
Berkshire Communiiy Colleges"
earlier ihis month.
But Albany experienced some
rouble following this formula in
he firsl game of Ihc 1980 official
season, spending loo much lime in
the goal area rather lhau shooting
from ouiside, "and not spreading
oul ihc defense," said Kidder.
The Dane halfbacks Blaine Many
(lefl), Lisa France (center), and
Oina Soldo (righl), had some trouble shooting the ball in the early
part of ihc match. But, jusl more
than five minutes into action,
freshman Elaine Many scored ihc

after Many's point, Stern found the
Siena weakness and passed the ball
on to Buel, who quickly sent it past
Sling goalie Sharon Huncan.
Willi a 2-0 lead, Ihc Danes held
Siena tightly, keeping most of the
game action in the Sting end of the
field. Weak Siena fullback play,
and the Sting goalie (who didn't
punt the ball for more than 20 yards
during the match), gave Albany an
early advantage — an advantage

better organized and exhibited the
good passing they worked on during the pre-season. "This year, we
have been working to coordinate
the total defensive effort between
the stopper and sweeper backs,"
commented Kidder.
The coach's "extremely fast" lefl
and right wing combination of Burton and Stern came through for the
Danes as Stern upped the score, 4-1,
in favor of Albany less than five
minutes into the second period.
This was more than a plus for Kidder, who has been working with
assistant coach Chris Bchrens, to
coordinate all the backs, "to get the
wing backs to work with the full
backs," said Kidder.

France, who scored the lasi shol of
the game, scaling the 5-1 Albany
victory, dropping Siena's record to
0-3. "We began to relax alter the
firsl few goals, but in the second
period our passing finally improved," said France.
"It was hard to play against an
inexperienced club like Siena,"
France continued, echoing the sentiments of her coach, who looks
forward to tougher competition
from Colgate, Hartwick and Springfield, "judging from lasi year."
Kidder called France Ihc "key in

Theatre Depl. co-chair Dr. Albert Assermely
Wants to work with "capable" students.
phiitn: Will Yunnan
by Whitney Gould
Students and directors in the
theatre department can debate more
than acting techniques now that
university casting policy is in question.
A controversy has arisen over the
casting of two actors from outside
SUNYA in a university production
of Two Gentlemen of Verona. A
committee has been formed to examine the subject of "outside competition".
Current casting policy states thai
"registered university students
should be favored in the casting"
by the directors of major university
produclions. However, according
to., the president of the Theatre
Council, Louise Simone, "last
year every major production had
people cast from oulsidc the univer-
sity community."
At an open faculty meeting
Wednesday, students and faculty
expressed their opposing views on
the matter of casting productions.
According to Professor Jerome
Hanley, "The director of a production must have artistic discretion.
No one is casting outside the student body maliciously." Technical
Student Steve Oreenberg, however,
argued, "Acting students shouldn't
have outside competition. This is
educational theatre."
Students auditioning for university productions may also face competition from a faculty member.
According lo SA Controller Ira
Sumach, "Students feel alienated
that a faculty member may take
their position. Important numbers
LXVI1 No.29
September 26, 1980
of the students may leave because
they feel the pressure is too great."
Theatre Department Co-Chair
and Director of Two Gentlemen of
Verona, Albert Assermely, stated,
"Our job is . . . to work with
students who are capable. This has
generally been possible."
One function of the University
Production Committee, composed
of two students and five faculty
members, is lo choose shows that
are castablc within the student
population. When a director wishes
to cast someone outside the university community, he must receive
permission from the Production
Committee. Dr. Assermely did not
request permission when he cast
outside the university for the play.
According lo Assermely, he was
unaware of thai policy.

No More Big Concerts
After Tucker Show Fails
$11,000 Loss
by Ken Gordon
Due lo an $11,000 loss incurred through the Marshall Tucker concert on September 23, the University Conecrl Board (UCB) will avoid
any more major concerts this year, according lo UCB Chair David
"Wc jusl can't afford to risk another major loss," commented
Montanaro. "We'd like lo bring more shows lo studcnls. Now with
this loss we're not going to be able t o . "
According lo Montanaro, International Creative Management
(ICM), managers of Marshall Tucker, refused to allow publicity to extend outside of the campus until five days before the concert. This,
along with the compel ilion of the Queen concert al the Glens Falls
Civic Center on the same night, were cilcd by Montanaro as major
causes for the loss.
Montanaro felt the publicity refusal by ICM was due to the facl thai
Marshall Tucker had sold out at SPAC twice Ihis summc-, so the
management felt a sell oul at the Palace Theater would be automatic.
When UCB received approval from Tucker's management, they
spent $1600 in five days on publicity.
UCB contracted the Marshall Tucker Band in laic August, well
before the plans for Ihc Queen concert were made public.
Other reasons cited for the failure of the conecrl were ihc facl that il
was on a Tuesday night, student apathy, and the inflated price ($9
average) of the tickets.
"People jusl don'l have the bucks lo spend on concerts," explained
This isn't the firsl lime a UCB conecrl has failed, he added. Montanaro reflected on last year's disastrous Todd Rundgren/Ulopia concert, another big loser, totaling $10,000. He also noted an unsuccessful

Albany Woman Cries Rape
Police Charge Her With False Reporting
by Wayne Pcereboom
An Albany woman who reported
she had been assaulted in bed has
been charged with two counts of
falsely reporting an incident, according to Albany detective Lt. H.
John Damino.
According lo Damino, Maria
Talco, 23, of 190 South Allen St,
rcporled that in the early morning
hours of August 18th a man broke
inlo her apartment, tied her legs
and arms down in bed and proceeded to rub vasoline on her sexual
organs before leaving.
Damino said he first became
suspicious when Talco contended
thai she had remained "sound
asleep" through the incident.
However, he said, ."we could not
disprove her story since there were
no witnesses." Further, Damino
slated that there were "friction
marks" on Tateo's wrists and
ankles which would indicate thai
she had been tied down. Police later
discovered thai these marks had
been self-inflicted,
September 6, Tateo reported thai al
3 a.m. a "white male" had attempted to break in her kitchen
door, shouting "I've come to get
you," before apparently being
scared away. Again, no charges
were placed againsi Tateo.
However, according to Dt. Martin Syszyk of the Colonic Police
department, Tateo reported on
September 23 that she had been
raped the previous evening in the
Colonie Center parking lot. Syszyk
said Tnlco "couldn't substantiate
anything," and medical reports
showed no sign of rape. Questioning, he said, led to her admitting
thai she had "fabricated" the rape
Damino said that after further
questioning by the Albany police
department, Tateo admitted her
reports of August 18 and September
6 were false.
Albany Rape Crisis Center Director Vicki Abinader said that a case
such as this "taints the credibility of
all future rape victims."
Tateo was arraigned in Albany
police court on Tuesday and is
scheduled to appear in Colonie on
October 1 for one count of false
Tateo could nol be reached for
country and said he hoped it would provide the basis for
future negotiated settlements with other corporations.
The agreement with GE calls for the company to submit plans for remedial work auhe dumps, which it does
not own, during the next several years. Following state
approval, GE would then have one year to complete the
cleanup work after which it would monitor and maintain the sites for 30 years.
In return for the work, the state has agreed not to sue
the company for any damage which has occurred at the
sites. But Glacke said the state had not given up the right
to sue GE for troubles that the PCBs or other wastes
may have caused away from the sites.
PCBs have been linked to cancer in laboratory
animals and to liver and kidney damage in humans.

Pilots Strike Calif. Airline
(AP) Pilots and flight engineers walked off their jobs at
Pacific Southwest Airlines early today, forcing California's largest in-state air carrier to cancel operations for
the first time in its 31-year history, a PSA spokesman
said. The strike, which began at 12:01 a.m., was expected after contract talks between the nation's 13th
largest airline and the 500 employees failed to yield an
agreement Wednesday, said PSA spokesman Skip
Myers. The walkout idled 3,700 other employees and
curtailed 200 daily nights to three states and Mexico.
Some 25,000 people fly the San Diego-based carrier's
commercial routes daily. Coincidentally, the strike came
on the second anniversary of a PSA jetliner and a light
plane over San Diego that killed 144 people. It was the
only accident involving fatalities in PSA's history. The
death toll was exceeded in this country only by the
DC-10 crash in Chicago in May 1979 that killed 273 people. Myers said he doesn't foresee a quick settlement tu
the strike because "we are so far apart on everything."
Hesaid PSA will honor its charter flight reservations by

policy victory for President Carter, came despite a warning from Sen. John Glenn, D-Ohio, that India is "the
world's worst nuclear violater." The White House hailed the "bipartisan" vote. Indeed, botn parties were
sharply divided on the issue. Twenty-four Democrats
and 22 Republicans voted to block the sale; 3|
Democrats and 17 Republicans voted to allow it. The
House voted its disapproval of the plan, 298-98, lasi

Reagan Berates Carter

Without putting it directly, the Republican nominee
strongly implied on Wednesday that he would prefer ai
least the option of using military force In the crisis. But a
weakened defense, he charged, has tied the ndminisiratlon's hands. Not surprisingly, the administration
vehemently disagreed with Reagan's ever-sharper imputation of U.S. culpability in the crisis. "It's easy io

Wednesday's cutoff of oil shipments from Iran and Iraq
alone should have no serious effect on supplies ind

ASUBA Overspends SA Budget
1979-1980 Deficit Totals Near $3000
by Belh Cammarata
Albany State University Black
Alliance (ASUBA) overspent its
budget by approximately $3000 last
year, according to SA Controller
Ira Somach.
The group also overspent its
budget in the 1978-79 fiscal year,
Somach said. "As a penalty for
overspending, SA deducts the
amount overspent from the involved group's budget for the next year.
Last year, SA only deducted half of
the $2500 overspent by ASUBA in
1978-79 from its 1979-80 budget, on
the condition that the group not
overspend in 1979-80. They did
overspend," he said.
Somach then outlined the procedures ASUBA is following this
year to balance the deficit.
"President of ASUBA Karen Hambrick has voluntarily made the required cuts to balance ASUBA's
budget this year. She hffs cut $1000
from the group's concert budget,
$400 from their SA services budget,
$800 from programming, and $500
from conferences," he said.

Minority Task Force is Formed
Seeks a Better Understanding
One of the possible causes of the
deficit was the cancellation of a
scheduled speaking appearance by
political activist Dick Gregory at
the end of last year, when Orcgory
chose instead to meet with the
Ayatollah Khomeini. "That was a
big income reducer for them,"
Somach said.

"Neither ASUBA nor Craig
Weinstock thought ASUBA overspent by that much, but the books
show we did, so they are currently
being checked."
SA Vice President Brian Levy
Examines problems of minority students
By Debbie M. Gross
A Minority Affairs Task Force
designed to examine discrimination
at SUNYA will be formed within
the next two weeks, according to
SA Vice President Hrian Levy.
The task force, initialed by the
SA, will include representatives
from certain minority groups on
campus such as ASLJIJA, Chinese
Club and Fuerza Latina. The committee will eventually set up a
Minority Affairs Task Force office
which will continue to examine problems facing the minority student.
jLevy said the committee will investigate the lack of programming
for minority students at SUNYA.
The committee will also examine
what is available for these students.
In addition to examining the problems experienced by minorities on
campus, the task force will also
review what roles the groups at
SUNYA play.
Levy said he has been interviewing minority group members in
order to have a greater understanding of what actions to take. He
said, "I want this committee to take
a slow hard look at the problems of
minority students. 1 don't want this
rushed into." He said he believes
that with careful planning and concentration this new committee will
be a success.
At this moment, the Minority Affairs Task Force has not gone into
action, but within two weeks there
will be a meeting and a charter
Levy added thai once the task
force is formed, they will decide
which groups can belong.

State Tower Flooded
When Pipe Bursts
hy Durham Sehindler
The fifth door of State Quad's
Tower was flooded Monday afternoon when a bathroom pipe burst
in one of the suite rooms.
The water, which had made its
way down to the first floor, affecting all lower floors in its path, filled all five fifth floor suite rooms,
some as much as a foot deep, and
had flooded one stairwell, according to Tower Director, Dave
On M o n d a y a f t e r n o o n a
maintenance man for the Quad,
Don Hauprich, responded to a
damage report filed by Greg Davis
of suite 501 for a leaky bathroom
pipe. According to Render, at
about 1:00 p.m. Hauprich was
doused with hot water gushing from
the pipe he was attempting to
repair, but was not injured.
Resident Assistant for the section
Brian Schwagerl said that the maintuinencc man had come Into his

had burst and to call the plant dept.

"I called for assistance, saw that

Damage was done to students'
clothes, shoes, books, rugs and
other belongings on the floor at the
time of the flood. Render said he is
not sure what, if anything, the
students will get in compensation
for their damaged possessions.
Schwagerl added that "one

Week four began at site two,
dubbed 'Troy 5-Abele', after permission had been obtained to dig on
the private property involved. One
of the problems archaeologists
often encounter initially is receiving
permission to begin digging. It had
taken three weeks in this particular
It was generally agreed that the
ride to the second site over a dirt
road—which had more holes than
dirt—was strongly reminiscent of
the jungle ride at Disney World,
complete with foliage, wildlife, and
water holes. When the road was too
muddy for the vans to navigate, the
students had to hike the last mile,
carrying all their equipment.
Once there, "Our basic strategy
was to open up spatially separated
units in order to get an idea of how
the site changed within its boundaries," Bender explained. "In addition to that, we had one person

that were also on the dig) go out

extent of some of the more interesting features we uncovered.

Prehistoric ceramics, including an

fire-reddened earth and intrusive
plow furrows, recognizable by different colored bars of soil.
"At another pit area, which we
called 'feature north', we found a
prehistoric garbage dump, known
as a 'midden', with scattered stone
tools and flakes (lithics) and
ceramics nearby.

Carter; Back to Vietnam
by George Swicrs
1 often wondered how Vietnam
policy makers could have committed America, for the vaguest of
reasons, to an area of the globe
steeped in political, religious, and
ideoligal confusion. Mow only two
senators rose in dissent over the
Tonkin Gulf Resolution. How il
took the senseless slaughter of Tel
for the media to subject the Vietnam experience to careful scrutiny.
How the American people, in their
devoted, but misguided patriotism,
could have been so supportive and
tolerant of a war that scarred their
nation's soul. And, as I looked at
the physical a n d emotional
wreckage my fellow Vietnam
veterans had become, 1 often comforted myself with the thought that,
"at least we are the very last."
Now I know how such things
could have happened. Worse, I
realize how naive I was. For it could
easily happen again.
During his State of the Union address the President all but said it.
That, clearly, because the Carter
Administration is a failure, it may
be necessary for young Americans
to die in defense of the nation's,
and the President's, vital interests.
With all but a few very notable exceptions the Congress, reflecting
the angry and frustrated mood of
their constituents, rose to enthusiastically applaud the wisdom
of it all.
Carter and his image-makers
have told us "we are experiencing
the greatest (that in Afghanistan)
crisis since World War II." That is
arguable, but the intent is obvious.

Rape Rap
A woman's background may be a
key to avoiding rape.
That's according to University
of Illinois Professor of Psychiatry
and Sociology, Pauline Bart.
Bart studied 94 women, 51 of
whom were attacked but avoided
being raped and 43 of whom were
raped. Bart says she found that
women who avoid an attempted
rape are generally more independent.
S h e says—in h e r
words—"They are usually firstborn daughters and their parents
did not intervene if they got into
fights with other children."
Bart also says that women who
have "feminist" traits arc more
likely to avoid rape.
Bart's study also found that those
women who were raped tried only
one strategy, that of pleading, while
those avoiding rape tried screaming, fleeing and the use of physical

There's a certain taboo in Hollywood
about trying to film literary classics. Whal
works on paper may not translate effectively
lo film. Ambitious though Ihe project is, this
seems to have been the case with The
University at Albany Bus Schedule, now
familiarly known to us all as The J 980 SUNY
Bus Service Follies.
Perhaps the filmmakers were aware from
the start that they couldn't bring It off. Rather
than attempting lo capture the letter of the
Schedule, they've gone out on an artistic
mb to create an expresslonlslic rendering
which seems rather like a collaboration between Flo Zlegfeld and Sam Pecklnpah. A
capable cast flounders under weak direction,
and Is apparently left to Improvise major sequences. The result, which Is sure to disappoint everyone who's read and loved the
original Schedule, Is a disjointed and confusing mess.
The unnamed prolagonisl seems lo be an
allegorical student Everyman, who Is shuffled through a typical student schedule.
Dependent on the merciless bureaucrats
who run the university shuttle bus system,
Ihe student liveryman finds himself late fot

violence Is original and completely
gratuitous. That the scenes early on are Imaginary doesn't dilute their power. A n d they

the massive riot which Is the film's conclusion.
The anarchic tone of this final sequence
leads me to believe a director was never on
the set. The cast was left lo improvise — accounting for both Ihe choppy and uneven
tone as well as the extremity of the violence.
Thirteen students who tried to elbow their
way in front of Everyman and his friends
(who have been waiting in the hot sun for
over an hour) are summarily Impaled on Ihe
main flagpole. The riot, which in the context
of the film lasts three days, seems to go on

Queen Plays
f he Game
t a time when most heavy metal
bands have dissolved, changed
key members, or are being swept
away by the new metal movement from Britain, the group Queen refuses to bite the
dust. Queen has remained prominent not
just by producing hit albums but by performing these hits In spectacular fashion.
Queen entered the Glens Falls Civic
Center Tuesday night to a standing room only crowd of fans wailing to be rocked. The
Ed Pinka
group has always been theatrical and
musically close-knit. Lead singer Freddie
Mercury led the band In rapid lire succession
through the two hour set. Mercury's ballet
background was quite evident as he danced
and commanded the show moving from
center stage, to his piano, and to the speaker
platform at the extreme edges of the stage
Surrounded by a massive lighting setup and
coupled with smoke machines and explosions, Queen had the audience standing for
much of the concert.
Opening with a powerful version of
"Jallhouse Rock". Queen then moved Into
"We Will Rock Y o u " with Mercury urging
the audience to join in the chorus, which
they gladly did. Then as quickly as Brian
May could change chords, Queen started to
cook. "Let Me Entertain Y o u " was followed
by the title cut oil the new album "Play the
Game", whi h was done quite well.
Continuing at a pace slowed down only to
allow Mercury to get to the piano, or chal
with Hie audience, Queen ran through some
of their older tunes. "Death on Two Legs",
"Killer Queen". "In Love with My Car", and
"Gel Down, Make Love" brought out the
best of Queen. Lights (lashed, smoke smoked. Mercury panted wildly and Brian May
cranked out one of his impressive solos.
Queen then subtly pushed their new
album The Game by running through some
of its material. The best song was "Save
Me", due mainly to Mercury's powerful
The next song was tenderly dedicated to
all the ladies in the audience with a "fat ass"
(Can you name that tune?). This was followed by the first successful break In tempo with
the acoustic song "Love of My Life".
The wild tempo was resumed with a short
drum solo by Rodger Taylor. "Keep Yourself
Alive" followed, then Taylor took another
solo on the kettle drums. Brian May then
took his second solo. This one was filled with
distortion and echoes which sounded like
Mercury's acappella vocals In the "Prophet
The rest of the band returned to do "Crazy
Little Thing Called Love", "Bohemian
Rhapsody" (which had help from tapes for
the middle harmonized chorus part) and
then finished the evening "Tie Your Mother
After a thunderous ovation,(and the
chance to (lick a bic) Queen returned with
"Another One Biles the Dust", and "Sheer
Heart Attack".
Still craving more, the capacity crowd
brought the boys out for a second encore.
• Mercury once again got the audience to
Join In on "We Will Rock Y o u " ; most of the
crowd screamed along to " W e Are The
Champions"; and then Queen bid a gracious
good-night with "God Save the Queen".
Then before the blcs could flick again, the
lights were turned on and Ihe red-eyed,,
bladder bursting masses headed for the exits,
satisfied that Glens Falls Civic Center had
never been rocked so magnillcently before.
Though portions of the concert were taped music. Queen's soldout performance w a s a live s u c c e s s .

to update It with a fantasy plot and disco

The people behind this movie make no attempt to hide their goal; In fact the two
aspects of the plot exist simultaneously. In

sees brightly clad, asexual couples dlscoing

themselves, but when they merge, both of
them lose. Tins kind of mixing would ac-

permeates the project. If II were a straight
disco movie it might have worked and If II
were Just an old style musical It could also
have worked, but the two genres are Just too
different to blend.
The musicals of Hollywood's "golden
years" had paper thin, boy meets girl, boy
loses girl, boy gets girl plots. The songs were
simple love ballads or tap numbers that
blended smoothly Into the milieu. Xanadu is
constructed In Just the opposite way. It was
made (and the producers admit this) to fit
around the songs In order to sell the soundtrack album. The numbers are performed by
Olivia Newton-John and the Electric Light
Orchestra and since each are primarily recording stars (ELO doesn't even appear In the
movie) Ihe plot has to adapt to their differing
styles rather than vice versa. This leaves the
screenwriters with an Interesting problem: If

have not seemed to mix well, Tuesday night,
though, 1 was proven wrong. The Marshall
Tucker Band, performing under a full moon
(which unfortunately didn't cause much audience adrenalin to flow) and to a packed
house, gave their best performance,
technically and musically, that I have seen.
Their stage presence was low-key but still Inviting. Apparently, however, few heard the

Allman Brothers guitarists Duane Allman
and Dickie Betts. Swapping occasional
leads, the duo complement each othei
equally well on rockers like "Ramblln" and
"24 Hours at a Time," or on funkier
numbers and ballads like the slow "In My
Own Way," and "Fire on the Mountain".
Jerry Eubanks is an extremely versatile musician, trading off between his saxophones
and flute to add layers of additional color
and emphasis during his few leads. The flute
solo on "Take the Highway" and the sax solo
during "24 Hours at a Time" really got the
crowd moving at long last. However, the
best performer on the stage Tuesday night
and every night the Tucker Band plays is
drummer Paul Riddle. Fiery Riddle probably
gels the least recognition of all Ihe members
of the band, but Jays as if he was born with
The band might have played longer and in
an even more frenzied manner had the audience chosen to back them up. Even the
band's entrance went almost unnoticed and
was greeted by sporadic applause al best.
They, then, launched into their first number,
a slow and mysterious version of "Runnln'
Like the W i n d " , the title cul of last year's
offering. The tone at the start of the show
was undoubtedly audience-oriented: mellow. The band wanted to play rough, as was
evident in the many direct exhortations by
the band members. However, audience
apathy and an especially cranky sound
system kept the players laid back fur the fir--t
third of the show. The vocals during the flrsl
couple of songs were far too loud, with lead
singer Doug Gray motioning frequently to
his sound men to do something. The banks
of speakers surrounding ihe stage were
equally uncooperative, rumbling, screeching
and Ihunderlng feedback blasting through as
loud as the roar of the band. I waited apprehensively for the band to quit during a
couple of songs, so loud was the feedback,
especially during "The Last of the Singing
Cowboys," when lead guitarist Toy Caldwell
was visibly upset by the noise.
golden drumsticks in his hands. Very few
drummers anywhere are In the same league
with Riddle, who showed his talents during
every song, providing tricky and Intricate
rythyms during an extended "Fire on the
M o u n t a i n " . Riddle was called upon
repeatedly by Caldwell and McCorkle,
backs facing the audience, to energize the
sluggish crowd. That he did. Lead singer
Doug Gray has undoubtedly the best voice In
Southern rock. Gray belts out each number
with a silky, bourbon-smooth, sensuous feeling that mellows the electric beat from the
band, and the result Is Marshall Tucker's
trademark: a Southern boogie band that,
unlike the Allmans, Skynyrd (sorry, folks),
Charlie Daniels Band, the Outlaws, ZZ Top
or anyone else, has a credible vocalist.
Gray's voice hasn't held up over the years of
road work as well as It might, though. One
I need only to pick up a copy of Marshall
Tucker's "Where We All Belong" album,
and put on the side with "Ramblln" live to
find that out.
The newest member of the band, as most
Tucker fans are aware, is bassist Franklin
Wlllkle. A longtime friend and high school
classmate of the band members, Wlllkle
replaces Tommy Caldwell, charter member
to the band, brother of leader Toy Caldwell,
and rock-steady bass player since the group
started In 1972. Tommy Caldwell was fatally
injured In an automobile accident in June
and has become the latest of the Dixie
rockers to die. Toy Caldwell briefly discussed
the death of brother Tommy before introducing bassist Wlllkle (who kept a very low profile through most of the show) at the top of
the first encore, a whipping version of the
crowd favorite, "Can't You See". T w o more
encores followed, "Searchln' For a Rainbow" and "This OP Cowboy" (also from
"Where We All Belong"), the former drawing the only genuine crowd response of the
night after some simply dazzling guitar exchanges by Toy Caldwell and George Mc
Corkle. The bright lights came up as the last
notes of "This OP Cowboy" disappeared,
Doug Gray heaved his tambourine into the
20th row and Albany will have to wait till
next year.
All in all this was a very good concert performance by a band 1 had given up on a couple of years ago after "Carolina Dreams" was

Albany plays a ball control game
which differs greatly from the style
of the remaining teams in their conference. Squads such as Cortland
and Siena play a more aggressive,
hardnoscd rough game.
Tomorrow Albany will take on
Cortland at Bleeker Stadium, at
1:00. Schicffelin expects a "good,
hard game" which he thinks his
team can win. This contest will be
followed by another home game
versus Hartwick. "Hartwick is an
excellent team and will probably be
our toughest opponent in our next
four games," added the coach. The
Danes will then travel to Brockport
and Union for matches against
these two rivals.
"If we can win three of our next
four games we will be in good position. I think our team is up to the
test," concluded Schicffelin.

Spikers Slammed By Top Squads
Open With Two Losses
by lurry Kulin
Good news, bad news time for
Dane volleyball fans. First the bad
news — the Albany State women's
volleyball team lost their first iwo
matches without winning a single
game. Now lhe good news — their
toughest matches of the year arc
over wilh and the inexperienced
spikers held their own.
The Danes iiil ihe road on
Wednesday night and were defeated
in both ends of a dual meet against
Colgate and Nazareth at Colgate.
Colgate is one of the top Division I
teams in the slate and last year,
Nazareth was the top ranked Division III squad. "We didn't play
badly — they're just both very good
teams," said Albany volleyball
coach Pat Dwyer. "They'll probably be the two hardest matches of
the year."
Even though Albany didn't win
any of the games, they kept the
matches close enough to make them
interesting. In the first game against

one point, 11-10, before eventually
losing, 15-11. They then dropped
the second game, 15-8, and the first
game to Colgate by the same score.
In the final game, Albany jumped
to an impressive 9-1 lead before collapsing, when they lost 14 straight
points to finish, 15-9.
"We never got arty momentum
going," said Dwyer. "All the games
were close until wc slopped scoring
points. We didn't quite come
through in the key moments. I think
we just need to play a little more."
Dwyer doesn't expect Ihe rest of
the season to be so bad. "It was a
disadvantage starting against the
toughest teams," he said. "But we
should make the stale championships Ihis year. We'll probably be
ranked seventh or eighth in Ihe

,t tougher schedule this year,"
noted Dwyer. "But the more they
play the belter they'll get. In the
long run it should work out better
for us."
One of the spikers' major
obstacles [his year is Iheir youth.
The only returning senior is captain
Anne Cnrberry, and there are three
juniors. The rest of the team con• ists of sophomores and freshmen.
"Experienced setting is a little lacking as well as experience overall,"
Dwyer remarked.
Their next volleyball match is
tomorrow against Kings College
and Rutgers Newark, away. Last
year the Danes beat Kings, but did
not play Rutgers Newark — one of
the more powerful teams they'll
face this year. The first home meet
will be on Wednesday against
Russell Sage, Siena, and Binghamton.
With more than 20 games left to
play, the spikers are by no means in
bad shape. "Overall, I'm pleased,"
said Dwyer. "We played well, not
as well as wc could, but good
enough for our /irsl match." He
added, "Hopefully we'll do better
on Saturday."

"Pine Hills Molester" Attacks Victim Again
by Beth Sexer
After six weeks of calm, a man
thought to be the Pine Hills
molester has returned to victimize
Albany women.
This time, the attacker returned
to the home of a woman he
molested just two months ago on
July 28, according to Albany detective Lt. H. John Damino.
According to the Knickerbocker
News, the victim of the incident,
which took place at about 2 a.m.
yesterday morning, is a 23-ycar-old
woman who lives on the 500 block
of Madison Avenue.
The attacker, Damino said,
entered through an "open, unlocked window in the cast side
bedroom. Everything else was locked."
Damino said police cannot be
sure that the attacker is the man
known as the "Pine Hills Molester"
but his description "is very similar
in mold."
The Pine Hills Molester is
described as a black male, between
five feet, five inches to five feet,
nine inches tall, slim, slender in
build, but athletic.
While the Knickerbocker News
reported that this is the first case in
which the attacker has returned to
the same house. Damino said that
the attacker has done this once or
twice before.
Damino suggested that the
Molester returned to the house on
Madison Avenue because he knew it
was easy to enter, and was inhabited by women.
In almost 95 percent of the cases
Damino said, the Molester entered
through unlocked windows. "Most
people are not security conscious,"
he said.
Albany Police have "beefed up
the number of patrols" in the Pine
Hill area, said Damino. However,
he said, "there's just so much the
police department can do. We'd
like to put a policeman on every

Damino said that the Molester is
probably an introvert, who is not
likely to brag about his crime. Also,
the Pine Hills area is large, containing between 10,000 to 15,000 people. Damino added that the

Dane GriddersFace "Must Win"InBrockport
by Bob Bellafiore
Albany State could be in trouble.
If you go back to last year's three
season-ending losses, and tack on
the two defeats this year, the Danes
are in the midst of a five-game losing streak — the longest since varsity football began here in 1974.
"We'd like to end it pretty quickly," said Albany coach Mike
The Danes will have that chance
tomorrow when they travel to
Brockport to face the 1-2 Golden
Eagles — a team that head coach
Bob Ford mentioned in pre-season
as one team Albany should beat.
Despite the fact that Albany has
won six games in a row over
Brockport (38-6 in 1979), the
Golden Eagles have some weapons
that could be troublesome for
The passing game is one —
perhaps the biggest one. Quarterback Tim Brunelle (6-0, 205 lbs.)
threw 15 completions in 23 attempts
for 177 yards in a losing effort versus Alfred, and was named to the
ECAC Honor Roll. "He's a strong
kid — a good thrower," said Dane
coach Matt Diange of Brunelle, the
tenth rated passer in Division III.
'Their passing game was the biggest thing against Alfred," he continued. On the season, Eagle
quarterbacks have connected on 30
of 53 attempts for 369 yards (56.6
percent, 12.9 yards per catch).
Meanwhile, the Albany secondary
has given up 13 receptions in 31
tries (41.9 percent) for 245 yards

K201 yards in nine completions),
and that's where the Eagles
specialize. Split end Roy Voiiton is
their leading receiver, snaring nine
catches for an impressive 178 yards
(19.8 average). "He's a burner,"
said Diange of the fleet-footed
Voiiton. A starter since his
freshman year, Voiiton will be the
man who'll try to break Albany's
three-deep secondary. "When they
(Brockport) throw the ball, six out
of ten times they're going to throw
to him. He's a real threat," said
Dane defensive coordinator Mike
When they're not throwing,
though, Brockport's offensive
numbers arc not as awe inspiring.
Running the ball out of their wingt, multiple-type offence, the Eagles
have netted only 248 yards on 123
rushes for an average of just over
two yards per carry. Fullback Dave
Cotter tops the list with 148 yards
on 34 carries — not impressive
figures, but the 6-0, 215-pound bull
has yet to be thrown for a loss.
Halfback Cornelius Boykins, a
big ground gainer for Brockport in
the past, has been held to 60 yards
on 26 rushes. With Reggie Cox,
Boykins is the outside runner that
the Eagles must get loose in order to
be effective. Neither have great size.
Cox is only 5-7, 167 lbs., and
Boykins is 5-9, 170. But the latter is
the biggest threat of the two, according to Motta.
The Eagle offensive line is not in-

credibly large (average weight: 220
lbs., height: 6-2). "They're a sound
offensive line, but they don't really
sustain their blocks," said Diange.
He also noted that they have weak
pass blocking, and he thought that
Albany would be able to exploit

linebackers Rick Willett and Fred
Bcncc, and defensive end Frank
Turbin, Brockport's 5-2 defense
could pose a problem for Albany's
run-oricntcd wishbone attack.
"Their front seven are very
solid," said Albany coach Mike
Angelo of the Eagle's five lineman
and two linebackers. "If we can
handle them, we have a good
chance of winning the ballgame,
he continued.
Angelo noted two match-ups in
particular that arc keys to Albany's
offensive success. One is between
Dane center Mike Arcuri (6-1, 205
lbs.) and Eagle middle guard Jeff
Quartaro (6-0, 220 lbs.). "He
(Quarlaro) has got good speed and
is a good pass rusher," said Angelo
of the noscguard. Another is between Albany offensive tackle Jim
Esposito (6-3, 220 lbs.) and defensive tackle Mike Mormino (6-0,
215). Angelo calls Mormino, "by
far, their best pass rusher."
"If we can control those two, we
can control the line of scrimmage,"
said Angelo. And he felt that such
control could sway the decision
towards the Danes, "We must control the line of scrimmage, eliminate
their pass rush, and play errorless
football," Angelo continued.
