Danes Look To Darken Florida Skies

The Danes, as most people know,
are mainly a running team. The
wishbone attack, game after game,
is the vehicle that gets them where
they want to go. Well, for Albany

the Knights, and that could have a
profound effect on Albany's panic
plan. The same holds true for UCF,
and the two teams have exchanged
films in order to alleviate the problem. "They probably know as little about us as we do about them,*'
Ford said.
But what the Danes do know is
that UCF is a squad stacked with
talent, size, and potential. "Their
plan, form what I've heard, is not
to slay in Division III," Ford said.
"They plan lo move u p . "
The biggest asset that UCF owns
that would allow for such a move is
their size — especially on the offensive line. The front five on the
Knights pro-style attack average 235
pounds per man, and there is only
one player out of that group that
weighs less than 215 pounds (guard
Don Ellison, al 180). UCF has a
pair of bookend tackles in Randy
High (6-5, 240) and Ncal Ginley
(6-8,265). The latter began his college career at the University of
Michigan, where he traveled to the
Rose Bowl. Al center will be 6-3,

with that kind of personnel on the
offensive line, the Knights arc a

"We depend on the pass," said
Knight's head football coach Don

senior quarterback Mike Cullison
"He's got a real'strong arm," said
Albany defensive coordinator Mike

UCF: A Young Program With Grown-Up Ideas
by Paul Schwartz
Bob Ford first got the idea at ar.
NCAA meeting in New Orleans last
January. "I heard that there were
some Florida teams interested in
having northern teams come down
to play them," Ford recalled. After
checking in an NCAA guide, Ford
sent letters to St. Leos and Central
Florida — the only two schools
listed as playing Division III football in Florida.
Don Jonas was not aware of
Ford's thoughts or actions. As head
coach of the Universily of Central
Florida Knights, Jonas was trying
to build a program which had begun
intercollegiate play in 1979. He was
an unpaid part-timer, so he left
scheduling to the Athletic Director.
Back in Albany, Ford received
two offers. St. Leo's would give the
Danes a $2,000 guarantee for traveling to Florida for a ballgame. Central Florida guaranteed $5,000.
Central Florida also played their
home games in the 48,000 seal
Tangerine Bowl in Orlando, home
of Disneyworld. It was an enticing
package, and afler ironing out a
few details, a contract was signed,
and the Danes were set to embark
on Oieir longest road trip | n Albany
State football history. For Central
Florida, tomorrow night's game
will be their first contest with a northeastern opponent. For Albany, it
will be a weekend of fun, sun, and
football . . .all Florida style.
"There are multiple benefits,1'
said Ford. "It will be an experience
for the kids on the team. When we
went'to the playoffs in 1977, about
sixty percent of our kids had never
flown before, and I would be
shocked if it's any different this
year. Plus, we have a chance lo play
in one of the largest stadiums in the
nation, and the trip has got lo help
us in recruiting, We also have over
six hundred alumni in the Florida
area, so it will give them a chance to
keep in contact with us."
The trip comes at an intriguing
time for the Danes. They have lost
two straight games, post a 4-4
record, and will close out their
season in Albany next week againsl
a powerful Springfield team. A
loss in Florida could snowball into
an unsettling four game losing
streak, a dip under .500, and the
mosl losses in a season in Albany's
11-year history.
In Central Florida's scheme,
tomorrow's encounter is an in-
teresting challenge for a young team
wjth grown-up ideas. Jonas' squad
has crowded to a 3-3-1 record this
year, and although still in its infant
stages, the program seems destined
"It's a gold mine
for recruiting.
We're in a
situation where a
lot of schools are
calling us and
asking if they

lo soar before it walks or even runs.
• The slate of Florida ranks third in
Ihc nation (behind Texas and Ohio)
as a source of recruitment for college football players.
• There arc over 400 high schools
with football programs in Florida,
producing enough talent for the
scholarship and non-scholarship
• The Universily of Central Florida
can lure attractive opponents with
their attractive home — the
Tangerine Bowl.
None of this is lost on Jonas.
"It's a gold mine for recruiting,"
he said. "We're in a situation where
a lot of schools are calling us and
asking if they can play us." And the
interest is not isolated lo. the
hopeful opponents. Last year, the
Knights set an NCAA Division 111
record for a first-year program.
They averaged over 11,000 fans per
game, and showed the largest profit
of any first-year Division III football program in history, The

"1 really see the advantage more

play in Ihc Tangerine Bowl. And I

So arc the Danes. Afler raffling
off a car and sponsoring a comedian on campus to raise mosl of the
additional $7,000 needed for the
trip, the Albany players and
coaching staff are eagerly awaiting
this as a getaway from what has
essentially been a frustrating
season. The fund-raising, coupled
with a difficult schedule, has left
the Danes somewhat spent, and
Ford attempted to wade through
the extra activities and focus on the

Steve McQueen Dead at 50
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) Steve McQueen, (he rugged actor whose unorthodox battle against cancer
epitomized his character an the screen, died Friday at a
clinic in Juarez, Mexico, one day after surgeons removed a five-pound tumor from his abdomen. He was 50.
"He was in extreme pain," said Dr. Cesar Santos, who
performed the surgery. "McQueen and his wife came
and asked for the operation because of the pain. He was
under constant sedation because of the pain. The
possibility of his surviving the operation was extremely
poor," said Santos. " H e had cancer all the way to his
diaphragm and cancer from the right lung was pushing
into the left lung." Santos said the operation had reduced but not eliminated the pain, and added that McQueen
might have lived two or three more months without the
operation. "But suddenly he had a heart attack and
died," about 2:00 a.m. EST on Friday, said Santos' wife
Rosa Maria, administrator of the one story, 20-bed
brick Clinica de Santa Rosa. At the time of his death,
two friends of the family were in the room. McQueen's
wife, Barbara, and two children by a previous marriage,
son Chad, 21, and daughter Tcrri, 20, had just left the
room when he died. His death shocked the film industry

aspects" raised by Ihe Iranian conditions. The Algerian
governmcnl, which has been acting as intermediary between Washington and Tehran in Ihc delicate negotiations over the hostages, was expected to relay Ihc
American reply to Iran within hours. It was no| known
if any Iranian officials were here. The embassy
spokesman said it was not immcdialely clear when

Polish Students Strike
WARSAW, Poland (AP) Some 1,000 medical students
in the Polish port of Gdansk went on strike to support
teachers and health care workers occupying a district
government office there, union sources said Saturday.
The occupied office is near the giant Lenin shipyards,
center of last summer's strikes by hundreds of
thousands of workers here and across Poland. The
widening protest in Gdansk came just two days before a
court decision expected Monday concerning a crucial
revision in Solidarity's charter. The union has promised
renewed strikes if the Polish Supreme Court ruling is not
to their liking. Solidarity, the largest union coalition,
claims to represent some 10 million workers out of a
total work force of 18 million in all sectors and 13
million in the government-controlled sector. Communist
Party membership is believed to be less than 3 million.
Polish Court Favors Union
WARSAW, Poland (AP) The Polish Supreme Court
ruled today in favor of the nation's biggcsl independent
union, registering ils charier without a disputed clause
and averting a new wave of strikes. After a session of
nearly three hours, presiding judge Witold Formanski
said the Warsaw district court had exceeded ils authority
last month when it added to the charier of the
"Solidarity" trade union a phrase asserting the Communist Parly's supremacy. Formanski said the lower
court had " n o right to cither cross out any sections of
the charter, nor to add anything," Under an agrecmcnl
reached Sunday at a Solidarity meeting, lawyers for Ihc
union, which claims as members some 10 million of Ihc
country's 18 million workers, prepared an annex to Ihc

these Impossible cinematic choices and we
just accept it, but when it happens to a
woman, the film Is suddenly unrealistic and
greedy. Even the title appears lo be saying
it's about time women were given the same
options — even if they are exaggerated.
This is basically a feminist-oriented fantasy, and it works extremely well as such. It
does, however, Incorporale many of the
problems of the genre. For one thing, it's difficult to get involved with the characters

like Kale, Ben, and Homer, but only
because Jill Clayburgh, Michael Douglas,

performers. It's difficult to relate to them

Philadelphia Story. It's My Turn doesn't attempt to work on a realistic level, so perhaps
it is unfair lo Judge it on one. Yet even II we
accept the patness of the plot, It's My Turn
still has a few weaknesses.
Clayburgh and Douglas seem to have problems working together. The chemistry between them isn't right and I'm not sure where
the problem lies. I suspect the trouble is with
Douglas' character (but not Douglas' performance), Ben is not an exceptionally Interesting person. He Is arrogant, shallow,
and chauvinistic. He's a prematurely retired
baseball player, unsure about the course of
his life. We can see why Kale would be attracted to him, but the relationship never
seems to click.
Abstract as it may be, the main fault of this
movie Is that everything happens too abruptly. Kate falls In love with Ben the second day
of her-trip, and she's suddenly ready to
sacrifice everything for him. The process Is
reversed for Ben, who is at first enamoured,
and later cools. The ending also seems hurried — as if the filmmakers wanted to leave
Kate's decision vague, but not too vague.
Yet, for all these difficulties, It's My Turn is
an admirable film if only because it was written and directed by women. Like Prluale
Benjamin, It's My Turn gives us a mature,
likable, independent woman, and I don't
think it's a coincidence that both films have
women In major roles behind the camera.
Claudia Weill, who directed Girlfriends,
helps Eleanor Bergsteln's problematic but
witty script over the rough spots. Also Interesting Is the fact that both films have
female executive producers — Goldie Hawn
for Prluate Benjamin and Jay Presson Allen
for this one. What all this seems to be saying
Is that If women are going to be presented
well on the screen, they are going lo have to
get Invoked In the creative process. The
question remains, however, whether or not
the studios will let them try.
It's My Turn Is an enjoyable, though not
complelely successful film. lis points are well
made and well taken, and Jill Clayburgh
gives one of her best performances. Yet for
some reason it doesn't seem to gel.
Clayburgh's strong decisiveness, Douglas'
grudging acceptance, and Grodln's laid back
modernism don't look like they belong
together. It's obvious that everyone involved
wants to get across the same message — it's
unfortunate they all have a different way of
saying It.

To the Edilor:
This letter is in reference to the . . . But
Seriously Foljcs "humor" magazine that invaded the SUNYA campus late Tuesday
night (November 4). I believe that the
deliverers of this magazine had to sneak the
copies into the various buildings around
campus — that's how bad the edition was.
The paper went downhill from the
editorial page (which was page 3) lo the end
(which was page 16).
First off, the editor, a Mr. Bruce Fox,
rattled off an editorial about how co-ed
.dorms are screwing up everyone's sex life.
He musl be crazy. After all, he lives on
Hudson Ave. What could he possible know
about co-ed living in the dorms?

a 16 page magazine and only 15 pages of

In Conclusion...
Welcome to the end of student power, ladies and gentlemen of
the State University.
Welcome to one of countless points on life's timeline where an
overwhelming silence arid bitter apathy results in the sudden loss
of rights and freedoms.
And welcome to the conclusion of twelve long years on the
University Senate and to all that student leaders have struggled to
bring you — to make life here a little more tolerable for us all.
And finally, welcome to the end of cocky editorials like this,
one in many that have consistently ranted and raved, pleaded and
screamed for you to care. This is the last.
Thai's because il all boils down to here — to tomorrow —
when an open forum will take place where student leaders will
beg, argue, and justify their right to continue existing on the
University's only system of governance — ihe Senate.
It'.s an open forum and lhai means you're all invited. We have
dreams and illusions of thousands of you pouring into ihe
Assembly Hall to.demand lair representation. Bui we also know
thai we're jusl kidding ourselves. You won'i even peek in the
Every day, each hour thai you live, learn and interact on these
premises, you do so in accordance or in conflict with the

It's al 4:30 p.m. today in ihe Campus Center Assembly Hall. If
you have nothing to add verbally, by all means come and provide
moral support with your physical presence.
Are you merely puppets, bouncing aboul day lo day in an absurd game defined by others? Or can we begin to make some sort
of difference?
Think aboul it. Wouldn't il be a shame lo wasle such a nice illusion?

It's the day the Air Force R0TC counselors will visit your campus to talk about AFR0TC programs.
It's the day you can hear more about a two, three or four-year scholarship that pays all tuition, books and lab fees, plus $100 each month. It's the day you can learn about working your
way to a commission in the Air Force... and all that goes with it.
It's the day the AFR0TC counselor will tell you about a great way to serve your country and
yourself, and about how you can continue work toward an advanced degree after entering active duty as an Air Force officer.
So, when the counselor arrives, ask questions. . . about pay. . . promotions. . opportunities . . . responsibilities. There's no obligation, and you might be getting closer to a scholarship
that will help you reach your goals, no matter how high you've got them set.

Oilers Survive Last Minute Patriot Drive, 38-34

Campbell scored twice as the
Houston Oilers withstood a furious
New England comeback and beat
the Patriots 38-34 in National Football League action Monday night.
Steve Grogan repeatedly allied
New England, throwing three
touchdown passes in the second
half. And when Mosi Tatupu
recovered an onsidc kick with barely a minute to play, the Patriots
were on the verge of an extraordinary victory. But after driving the
Pats from ll\eir own 48 to the

Slabler's scoring passes in the second quarter were a 79-yard

Barber and a 4-yardcr to old buddy
Dave Casper.
Campbell, who scored the other
touchdown in that quarter with a
2-yard rim on the first play following Jack Tatum's 35-yard Interception return, also scored on a 7-yard
thrust midway in the fourth
quarter. Campbell surpassed the
1,000-yard barrier to remain the
National Fool ball League's leading
rusher, finishing the game with 130
yards to hit 1,094 for the season.
Stabler cemented the triumph
with his third TD pass, a 16-yarder
to Mike Renfro with 2:41 lo play. It
turned out lo be Ihc winner.
Stabler was superb in the nationally televised game, completing

Where Has All The Faculty Gone?
Dean of Student Affairs Nell Brown
Brown mid the ASP he favors student representation.
by Ken Gordon
Not a single voice was heard in
opposition to permanent sludenl
representation on the University
Senate in an open public hearing
held Wednesday.
The hearing, which was held to
allow both faculty and students the
opportunity to voice their opinion
to the augmented committee on
Nominations and Flections, was attended by over 100 students, one
faculty member, and three of llie
ijighi faculty members of the committee.
Nominations and Elections committee chair Kendall Birr explained
that because of oilier commitments,
not all the committee members
could attend ihe meetings. He added that ihe lasl three open hearings
were mci wilh "galloping apathy."
In spite of this explanation, many
.siudenls were slill distraught, feeling that llicy were being cheated by
not having faculty present lo hear
their opinions.
Cop Car Crashes Answering Call
by Patricia Brunley
While responding io a distraught

intersection between Washington

- "The damage io the police car
was extensive while the oilier Iwo
vehicles involved were not severely
damaged," Heniglian said.
He added, "Since Ihe accident

According to police records,
there is a discrepancy belween the

"A body thai docs not rcprcscnl

Faculty chairman of the University Senate Eugene Garber called the
