In September of 1978, SA decided lo expand its legal services lo include an additional pan-time lawyer. A n SA search committee narrowed the choice to Lou Oliver and Alan Manning Miller, t1.'.- plain, tiff. Miller was brought before Central Council for approval, but was
rejected because he wanted lo alter the contract, Levy said,
He emphasized that Miller had never signed any contract lo SA.

"New Right" is Worried
WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) President-elect Ronald
Reagan's choice of mainstream Republicans for his
transition team is setting off alarms from the New Right,
whose leaders are worried over their apparent decline of
influence. "We don't understand why the conservatives
have not been more prominent in the campaign and the
early stages of the transition," said Richard Vigucric, a
leading fund-raiser for conservative causes. "It sure
looks strange." Although New Right leaders continue to
voice confidence that Reagan will live up to his conservative principles, they are clearly concerned about being
shut out of the incoming Reagan administration. "The
early sigin are that Governor Reagan will be pursuing
rather liberal policies economically and a policy of
detente in foreign affairs," said Howard Phillips, national director of the Conservative Caucus. Reagan has
turned heavily to former officials from the administrations of Presidents Gerald R. Ford and Richard M. Nixon in setting up his transition team. And that has raised
suspicion among some conservatives that a Reagan administration might adopt policies similar to those pursued by his two Republican predecessors — policies the
New Right considers loo moderate. The New Right,
which advocates major tax cuts, sharp reductions In
social spending and a massive military buildup, has b e n
particularly critical that advisory positions have been
given to former Secretary of Stale Henry Kissinger,
former Treasury Secretary George Shultz and Alan
Greenspan, former chairman of the president's Council
of Economic Advisers.
ERA Supporters March
BEIXEVUE, Wash. (AP) Dozens or pro-Equal Rights
Amendment demonstrators — most 'of them women —
marched Monday during the dedication of a $12 million
Mormon temple and about twelve chained themselves lo
the temple gates. Police used boll cullers lo remove the
demonstrators and arrested eighlcen women and one
man on criminal trespass charges. Al leasl Iwo protesters were shoved lo the ground by onlookers,
witnesses said, but no injuries were reported. The protest over the 'church's opposition lo Ihe proposed

Soviets Test New Missle
WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) The U.S. Navy says the
Soviels are testing a new submarine-launched missile
with a longer range than anylhing in Ihe American sub
fleet. It at least may have greater range, bcller accuracy,
and more power than any of the current Soviet
submarine-launched missiles, which are jusl being matched by the U.S. Navy, officials said. The Navy says,
without elaboration, thai the Soviels may be experiencing difficulties in their fliglu lesi program. Bui officials
indicate they expeel the Soviels lo overcome iho.se problems and cvcnlually deploy the new missile, with a probable range grealer than 4,500 miles, in lubes aboard
Iheir giani Typhoon submarines. The U.S. Tridenl
missile has a range of aboul 4,500 miles. That is roughly
equivalcni to the best Ihe Soviels now have in service,
the SSN-18. Giving an unusual amount of detail on
Soviet missile developments, the Navy said Ihe first
Typhoon sub was launched in September al a northern
Russian shipyard and Ihal the vessel is the firsl of a new

Reagan to Revise Budget
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (AP) Reagan has promised a
balanced budget by 1983 and said he thinks it can be
done earlier. The president-elect's Washington schedule
includes five meetings with Senate and House leaders,
two national security briefings, a Thursday afternoon
visit with Carter in Ihe White House and several
meetings with political supporters and aides. No news
conferences or speeches, oilier than tonight's telephone
hook-up, are on lap, however, Reagan is scheduled to
return to California for the weekend and plans lo go lo
his Santa Barbara ranch, where he vacationed last week,
for another five-day vacation over Thanksgiving. While
Reagan's session with reporters was his only public ap-'
pearancc of ihe weekend, he had a sieady stream of
visitors al his Pacific Palisades home, including aides,
rustecs of his personal pmifolio of Investments, and
two Texas political figures, Gov. William Clements and
former governor and treasury secretary John Connally.
' Connally, who,had lunch with Reagan on Saturday, and
Clements, who had Sunday breakfast with him, refused
to talk with reporters after their meetings, saying they
had to rush to catch airplane flights. Reagan aides said
Connally and Clements were asked for advice on issues
facing the new administration and Reagan has not yet
started interviewing prospective job applicants.
Heating Costs Rise
NEW YORK, N.Y. (AP) The cost of home-heating oil
in the state has hit the $l-a-gallori mark for the first
time. An unstable world situation and the forecast of an
unusually cold winter could make Ihe cost go even
higher, officials say. The city Departmenl of Consumer
Affairs said Thursday thai the average price of a gallon
of No. 2 home-heating oil went from 99.94 cents in
September lo 100.39 cents in October. That price is 19.6
percent more than the cost last October, when the
average price was 83.96 cents. Also, the New York Stale
Energy Office, issuing Ihe first of what will be monthly
surveys, reported that No. 2. oil averaged 100.03 cents a
gallon statewide for the month ended November. 5.
Despite the current glut in world oil markets, Consumer
Affairs Commissioner Bruce Ralner predicted that oil
prices for the New York City area may continue to rise.
Stating lhal supply and derpand are not Ihe only factors,
Ralner said "concern aboul the forecasted unusually
cold winter ahead, combined with the unstable international situation could mean even higher heating oil
Raise for Gov. Proposed
ALBANY, NY (AP) The governor's salary would jump
to $100,000 a year in 1983, under a proposal being
drafted Monday by aides to Governor Hugh Carey for
submission to the Legislature. The other top elected
slate officials, the lieutenant governor, comptroller and
attorney general, would also gel $I5,000-a-year pay
raises lo bring their annual salaries lo $75,000, starting
in 1983. Carey's current salary is $85,000 a year. He,
and the other three officials, also receive $15,000 a year
for expenses. Under the proposal being drafted, sources
said, lhal expense "lulu" would be eliminalcd; instead,
the four would be reimbursed for all their "necessary
and reasonable" expenses. The proposed pay hikes arc
cxpecled lo be included in legislation which would also
raise Ihe salaries of Carey's highcsi-ranking appointees.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Gov. Hugh Cafcy has proposed
lhat Ihe slate spend aboul $600,000 lo buy bullet-proof

Senate Passes Busing Ban
WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) The Carter administration
says efforts to end public school discrimination could be
crippled by a conservative-led Senate vote to deny the
Justice Department its last resort: seeking court-ordered
busing. But President Carter may find it difficult to veto
Ihe provision. Like one previously passed by the House,
it is attached to a $9.57 billion appropriations bill to
keep the Justice Department and several other federal
agencies operating through the fiscal year that began
October 1. Carter could not reject the amendment
without vetoing the entire bill. The proposal would not
ban busing but would forbid any federal expenditure on
efforts to require busing lefachieve integration. Liberal
Sen. Lowell Weicker, R-Conn., who led Ihe provision's
opponents, said the Justice Department would have to
withdraw from any case in which busing is involved.
Sen. Jesse Holms, R-N.C, who offered Ihe amendment
with Sen. Strom Thurmond, R-S.C, said it might give
some federal judges second thoughts aboul busing.
Iran Claims Victory
BAGHDAD; Iraq (AP) Iran claimed its forces threw
back the Iraqi invaders of Susangerd on Monday, driving them into retreat with a wave of tank-led reinforcements and helicopter gunships after three days of
intense fighting for the Iranian border lown. Claims of
enemy casualties there from bolh sides totalled more
than 1,300 in 48 hours. A Baghdad military command
communique did not mention withdrawal, instead
claiming successful helicopter and fighter raids on Iranian installations at Susangerd. Earlier il claimed heavy
damage against Iranian land and naval forces there.
Tehran radio said more than 200 Iraqis were killed Monday in addition to 650 Ihe day before. Baghdad earlier
claimed 511 Iranian dead in Iwo days. There was no way
to confirm the figures. Tehran radio said the Iranians
suffered "tens of martyrs" and Iraq said it lost 34 men
Monday in Susangerd. Fears that the two-month-old
war between Iran and Iraq would spread to other oil nations on Ihe Persian Gulf mounted with Kuwait's formal
protest to Iran over the second aerial rocket attack in
five days on an Kuwaiti border post.
House Passes State Aid
WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) A three-year extension of
a mulli-billion-dollar revenue-sharing program called
vital to basic services in cities and counties across the nation is halfway through Congress. Its fate now,
however, is unclear in the unpredictable lame-duck session. The House voted Thursday lo continue the $4.6
billion in no-strings-attached grants lo local governments through fiscal 1983, which will end Sept. 30 of
lhal year. II also authorized $2.3 billion a year for state
governments in fiscal 1982 and 1983. The measure now
goes lo Ihe Senate, which is cxpecled to consider a
similar version of its own next week. While Senate approval is likely, it is questionable whcihcr there will be
enough time before the targeted Dec. 5 adjournment
dale of Ihis lame-duck session lo resolve differences between the two measures.

"Peace Week"Activities
to Educate SUNYA on
War, Peace, Weapons, Draft
by Judie Elsenberg
The SUNYA Peace Project has
declared this week "Peace Week"
to educate people on various
aspects of war and peace and to
stress the importance of nonviolcnlly solving the world's problems, according to Peace Project
member David Drager.
According to Drager, Ihe topic of
war and peace is a crucial one,
especially since thousands of young
people registered for the draft last
year, and will be expected lo sign
draft registration cards in January.
According to Drager, the questions
of draft registration, war and peace
are so intensely personal that il
must be the individual who makes
the final decision, rather than the
government. Drager hopes that
Peace Week will help people to
make decisions in this matter.
Peace Week will last until this
Friday, November 21st. As par*
this program, the SUNYA Pea.
Project has set up a table in the
Campus Center to distribute information and literature, and will present a film, "Sentenced lo Success," Wednesday at 7 pm in
Brubacher Hall. Other activities
planned for Peace Week include a
speech by War Rcsislcrs League

(Columbia) features Edmunds and Billy
Bremner on guitar, Lowe on bass, and Terry
Williams on drums. The album Is a celebrations of roots rock and roll, lovingly
recreated. Lowe, the famed power-pop
potentate, produced the album In his own
inimitable style: a clean, slick and punchy
sound akin to Phil Spectofs In his heyday.
Side one opens with a bang. "Teacher
Teacher" Is the kind of tune we have come
to expect from the Rockplle collective In their
past releases. It Is a witty, terse adolescent lament which is perfectly complimented by
Lowe's deadpan singing. "If Sugar Was as
Sweet as Y o u , " an old Joe ("I Gotcha") Tex
stomper, Is done up in style, with Edmunds
contributing a typically impassioned vocal.
"Heart" is a witty bit of Loweian apostrophe.

with a marked, almost copy-rlght-lnfrlnging
debt to Gofln and King's "One Fine Day."
Billy Bremner's vocals on this song are a
pleasant surprise - Rockplle indeed has a
third lead singer to be reckoned with. "Now
and Always," an Everly Brolhers-style
ballad, features fine harmony vocals by Edmunds and Lowe. " A Knife and a Fork"
follows, and it is a real gem. A hilarious admonition to the overweight ("Wearln' a size
(orty-four,/You have to turn sideways to get
through the door"), it features a sinuous
organ that is reminiscent of Booker T. Jones.
"Play That Fast Thing (One More Time)" Is a
high-energy rocker that shows what Rockplle
does best: rockabilly with a modern sensibility. No one knows the ironic possibilities of
pop better than Lowe.
The seconJ side kicks off with "Let's Face
It," a tune penned by Dlfford and Tllbrooks
of Squeeze. This song is perfect Rockplle
(odder — terse and epigrammatic. "Pel You
and Hold Y o u , " another tune with lyrics by
Lowe, sounds as II it could have come from
Lowe's Pure Pop lor Now People. It is
perverse and unromantlc for a love song.
Edmunds and his guitar shine on the next
cut. Chuck Berry's "Oh What a Thrill." Sixties afflclonado that he is. Lowe plunders the
bass from the Temptations' "My Girl" for
"When I Wrlle the Book," a satirical lover's
lament with witty lyrics. The album closes
with two hoi rockabilly numbers, "Fool Too
Long." and "You Ain't Nothln' But Fine" (an
oldie recently recorded by the Fabulous
Thunderbirds as well) that feature fine, tight
ensemble playing.

time) Is a 7 " EP, "Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds Sing the Everly Brothers." Phil and

the Consort who played Page Hall last Friday night certainly fulfilled all expectations.
Suzanne Gerber
Calling themselves Radiance, former Consort members Jim Scott, David Darling.
Susan Osborne and Mancy Rumble-Wheeler
teamed up with two Brazilian percussionists
to produce a special blend of music that
rivals nature for its harmony and tranquility.
, Not quite rock yet, not quite Jazz, the music
of Radiance is created by instruments like the
traditional Chinese cheng, oboe, English
horn, cello, six and twelve string acoustic
guitars, voice and Brazilian percussion.
Friday night's concert was special for
several reasons. First, Susan's acappetla version of " A n d When I Die" was the most
powerful solo I've ever experienced. She's
got a voice that stings and stuns; her few
songs left me numb. Second, the show was
more than just live musicians playing to an
unacknowledged audience: throughout the
evening we were called upon to sing, clap,
and stomp along. At one point, the younger
audience members (those under 11) joined
Radiance on stage in tapping out rhythms
with hand-made shakers.
Possibly as entertaining as the music and
the audience participation, which Is always a

the percussionists. The bug must have bit,
for Louie wouldn't leave the stage. In fact,
he might have played all night if Jim hadn't

was the fact that the money from ticket and
baked goods sales went to benefit a local
educational institution: the Music Mobile.

leaches children how to love music, learning

situation Is precarious. So when the Consort
met Ruth last spring and learned of her situation, they volunteered to play a benefit. After
months of snipping through red tape, the
concert finally came about. Ruth i\m\ probably a large segment of last Friday's audience, are old fans of the Consort, which

The Consort, conceived by Paul Winter, is
like an ever-growing, ever-evolving family of
musicians dedicated to the belief that nature
is the source of all music. In past albums and
on their most recent, Callings, the Consort
reinforces our inextricable bond with nature
through the organic beauty of Iheir music,
and through the integration of their sounds
with those of nature: wolves, wind, seals,
In addition to recording and touring, the
Consort gives workshops and invites the
public to join them on their frequent retreats
of camping, hiking and music-making.

melody is catchy, but ihe substance of the
music has no consistancy.
Happily, the remainder of Hawks and
Doves exhibits the talent ol Neil Young at his
finest. Following the idea of the title and
album cover (which suggests a record dealing with a nationalistic topic) the three closing songs emphasize the lyricist's opinion of
our country. An exceptional cut, "Union
Man" shows the artist's genius for capturing
the mood ol a blue collar worker. Its lyrics
are strong, to Ihe point ol practical. Even the
music reflects the attitude and personality of
a union person. To capture the ambience of
a union meeting, the lyricist cleverly presents
the song In diologue form.
In addition to being a talented artist, Mr.
Young Is also an effective social commentator. Who could forget the scathing
statements of "Southern Man" and the Ironic
observations in "Welfare Mothers." Our
country takes abuse in "Comin' Apart at
Every Nail," a tune dedicated to describing
America as a once glorious nation that Is falling apart under the burdens of bureaucracy.
Siding with the working class, Mr. Young
discusses the problems of finding employment between the government and the mob.
Ending the album Is the title cut, "Hawks
and Doves." Relying heavily upon the country Influences, as do most of the second side
tunes, the song exudes nationalism. The
narrator explains his willingness to fight for
his country so "My sweet love can dance
another free day." Aspects of war are
portended in the song. Allusions to birds
circling In the rain are ominous foreshadowing. Perhaps Neil Young Is trying to alert his
listeners to possible war activities.
Hawks and Doves, which Is produced In
part by Neil Young, offers a new view into
the mind of the artist. Songs are skillfully
handled, with a little assistance from Levon
Helm on drums. Although the LP will not
claim a foothold of greatness next to masterpieces sUch as Come A Time and After the
Goldrush," it will make Its mark as an expressive, thoughtful piece revealing the complex genius of Nell Young.
Monotonous Madness-Spontaneous Specials
/ . ^ ' he "heavy, heavy monster sound
of Madness" comes through again
in their second album, Absolutely.
The opening song is "Baggy Trousers," plein

Caroline Sommers
If one's main concern is that Madness continues Iheir original sound, one will be very
satisfied with Absolutely. Loaded with fourteen songs (seven on each side), Madness
certainly has a chance to expand, but they
basically stick with what they had. Unlike the
Talking Heads' new album, if you took any
song from Absolutely and put It anywhere on
their (irsl album, it would fit perfectly.
"Embarrassment," " E . R . N . I . E . , " ' and
"Close Escape" are the next three songs on
the LP, and they contain all the basic
"nutsiest sound around" sounds, that
Madness refers to on their first album.
Unfortunately, Madness is one of the
many bands that hasn't yet "hit" our area:
Madness features Suggs with vocals and percussion, Chris Foreman on guitars, Woody
on drums and fire extinguisher (!), Mark
Bedford on bass, Chas Smash with vocals
and trumpet (but not at the same time), and
countless others.
"Not Home Today" and "On the Beat
Pete" follow, and "Solid Gone" closes out
side one. "On the Beat Pete" Is probably the
best song on the L.P. This Is because the
monster sound Is utilized to Ihe fullest and no
time Is wasted In the song. The lyrics and
music (II together perfectly, and the distinctive organ sound dominate throughout.
'Solid C o n e " Is llltles all the way, with a
definite Elvis Presley Influence. This tunc is
lull of the typical Madness rowdlness, and
features a lot of good solos. But, again —
very fifties, which, I guess, ska (reggae and
rock mixture), punk and funk are all relics of.
"Story T w o , " as they call it, opens with
"Take It or Leave It." Its sound is different
from what's on the first album, but the
Madness sound is nonetheless still easily
detected (understandably!). This song Is
quite monotonous, as are several on the
album, only because they are so repetitive of
early Madness. And also, with fourteen
songs, it is difficult to make each song
"great." Perhaps Madness should concentrate on quality rather than quantity? This is
my major complaint. However, there are
some good points about this album,too.
One, (or Instance, is "Shadow of Fear," the
second song on side two. Dissonance between the voice and background music lends
a slight and pleasant change, which is so

no way comparable to their first one, and
never will be. But the Specials expanded a
bit, and made their "stuff" even more (If
possible!) exciting.
The Specials feature the amazing Neville
"Perhaps Madness should

rarely found In this album that one must appreciate this song.
A perfect example of how Madness refers
to their sound Is: "Take a fairground-style
sound and add some Cockney humour-type
vocals. Throw in a saxophone for good
measure to pick out a spine-tingling melody
along the way, and you've got It. Madness."
There Is a definite Jackson Five Influence
in the song "Disappear." "Overdone"
follows (how appropriately titled!). "In the
Rain" features obvious "roller rink" type
sound; organ and very homogeneous
Madness sound which, however, Is still a lot
of fun. After this is "You Said," which Is less
rowdy than the rest ol Ihe album. Closing
out the disc Is "Return of the Los Palmos
7 0 , " which has a very Jamaican influence.
biggest difference between this
album and the Specials' new album is
that I could, with a lew more listens, say that

It opens up wilh "Lnjoy Yourself (It's Later

choral-type sound. Following this Is "Rat
Race," which Is also very light. "Man at C &
A " and "Pearl's Cafe" are the nexi two
songs; the first Is typical Specials style,
whereas "Pearl's Cafe" features "cutesy"
organ chords and heavler-thaii-usual lyrics.
It's about a woman who has lost her looks,
her mind, and Is In serious need of being
locked up. The song'- last Iwo lines are catchy: "When I thought I saw you, I'really
thought you were a wet dream come
true/Now I know that you don't care about
someone else's nightmare." The side closes
with "Sock It To 'Em, J.B.," which Is all
about James Bond. The lyrics are literally a
list of James Bond movies, and a list of
military names (KGB, CIA, MI5, etc.). In Ihe
middle of the song (which happens to be one
of the best Specials songs I've ever heard), I
was very surprised to hear organ that not-sodlslantly reminded me of the Doors' Ray
Manzarek's work.
Side two opens up with "Stereotypes," a
facetious look at "today's man" — the
"empty socialite" and whatnot. The lyrics are
again pretty heavy, and the sarcastic overtone suggests that the man's hangout would
be the "Nlte Klub" that the Specials so
vehemently busted on their first album.
These lyrics reminded me of those In "Rat
Race" on side one, which insults people who
try to Impress others wilh their material
possessions. The second song, "Holiday
Fortnight," Is a Caribbean-calypso Instrumental, taken straight out of the Islands.
(Close your eyes and you're there!) "I Can't
Stand It" features Rhonda Daker (of the
Bodysnatchers) with vocals, and more
Doors-ian keyboards. "International Jet Set"
is an eerie-sounding song with fifties' overtones, lots of sax towards the end, and the
lightest sound the band obtains on this entire
new sounding album.
Closing out the album Is a reprise of
"Enjoy Yourself (It's Later Than You
Think)." It's Just a tacky version of the first
song on the album, with a very slow beat.
I suppose 1 have to sum up somehow, so
I'll say this: If you find yourself In the middle
of the Record Co-op with just enough
money to buy one album, and it's between
the new Madness and the new Specials
albums, by all means, pick out More
Specials. That is, of course, unless you love
the original Madness sound, and want to
hear more of the same.

El Salvador:
A Serious Note
Crisis in Central America
By S. Kuman
On Thursday, November 20, at 7:30 p.m.
in LC 5, represcnlativcs of popular
movements in Nicargua, El Salvador, and
Guatemala will speak at the University
about the situation in their countries.
At a time when the rising mass
movements in Central America and the increasingly interventionist orientation of the
U.S. foreign policy seem to be set on a collision course, the three representatives could
make a useful contribution to our
understanding of the various problems facing their countries and the role of the
Unitci1 '"tales in Central America as a
In this short article, it is not possible to
analyze cither the internal problems of Central America or Ihe impact of U.S. policies
in that region. However, by outlining Ihe '
dilution in El Salvador, I hope lo draw the
reader's attention to the general nature of
the crisis in Central American as a whole.
The present struggle in El Salvador is In
my view the microcosm of the political
realities of Central America. It is becoming
increasingly clear that what is happening in
El Salvador today will happen in other
countries in the years to come.
El Salvador is the smallest of ihc-Ceniral
American countries — roughly the size or
Massachusetts. It is the eighth largest coffee
producer in the world, and the largest in
Central America. Until the 1950's, when
agriculture became more diversified, coffee
accounted for 90% of all exports. Today it
accounts for 44%. Ironically, only insiant
coffee is generally available inside the country. Production and export of coffee is controlled by an oligarchy (14 families).
Since Ihe historic uprising of 1932, when
30,000 people were massacred, political
power has been concentrated in the hands
of ihe military and ihe economy controlled
by the oligarchy. The post-war boom in
coffee prices increased export earnings of
the oligarchy from $19 million in 1945 lo
$76 million in 1950. In Ihe I950's, a coalition of military officers, technocrats and Industrialists made an alliance with Ihe oligarchy, and they decided lo Invest ihe surplus
earned from coffee expoiis in industry.
Industrialization mainly look ihe form ol
Import substitution, i.e., creating indusin
lo produce manufactured goods that were
previously imported. llui ihe concentration
of wealth in a few hands meant thai Ihe
country's internal market was small — only
ihe privileged few were able lo buy canned
foods, jellies, soap and ihe like. The pro-
blem would have been mitigated if land
reforms had been implemented (2% of the
population owns 60% of the land). Bui
given the facl that most of the landowners
belonged to Ihe oligarchy, Ihe land was not
touched. U.S. capital soon developed a
strong stake in the economy and played a
major role in making sure the ruling class
protected those stakes. U.S. inveslmenl increased from $19 million in 1950 to $45
million in 1967.
The industrialization in the towns and the
concentration of land in the hands of Ihe
oligarchy resulted in a steady deterioration
in the living standards of the vast majorily
of the population. In the country-side, the
number of landless increased more than
two-fold, in the 1960's. Migrants swelled
the cities, living in slums, with no basic services and little hope of employment. These
conditions have led the workers and
peasants lo rebel. Their demands for better
living conditions and land reform have been
met with intransigence and brutal repression.
The military junta in El Salvador has
ovet Ihe years developed an extremely
repressive slaic apparatus. They h.nc been
aided in this by Ihe U.S. and Israel. Between 1957 and 1974, the U.S. Agency for
International Development (AID) spcnl
over $2 million to irain Salvadorean police
and to provide arms, communication
equipment and transport vehicles and riol
control gear.
Until ihe mid 1970'Mhc U.S. was the major supplier of arms lo El Salvador. In 1975
Israel became Ihe major supplier, and in
1977 El Salvador rejected military aid from
llie United Slates, in anger over Presidenl
Curler's criticism of Its human righls
record. Recently, however, the U.S. has
eommiiicd a package of emergency
economic and military aid to ihe present
civilian - military ruling junta. Military
assistance amounts lo SI 1.5 million — including arms credits, training grams and the
placemen! of U.S. military training team's in
1:1 Salvador — and is Inlcdcd lo bolster the
faltering junta thai has failed lo cam
popular supporl, and which hhs declared a
stale of siege lo put down Ihe jusl si niggles
of the people.
The sniggles are lead by ihe Revolutionary Democratic From (FDR), which
consistcsofa number of mass organizations
such as Popular Revolutionary Bloc (DPR),
Popular From for Unified Action (FAPU)
and Peoples Lcague-28 (LP-28). These
mass organizations grew out of the

To the Editor:
This letter is in response to Andy Schacffcr's tactless criticism that appeared in last
Friday's ASP (Nov. 14). I would like to address his remarks chronologically.
First off, I have no dislike for the editor
of . . . But Seriously Folks. Bruce Fox (the
editor) called me on the phone to compliment me on Ihe letter I wrote to the ASP
thai appeared in the Nov. II edition. Bruce
and I have been friends for some time now.
Secondly, Schacffcr missed the main
point of my letter. I wrote that the . . . But
Seriously Folks magazine was a waste of
lime lo read but more imporlantly thai the
magazine was a waste of trees. I will stand
strong by this statement. With the massive
amounts of paper used and abused daily, it
is a shame to see "more paper wasted
frivolously al I he expense of a few chuckles.
(I personally didn't laugh at any article in
the paper, although Schacffcr points out
that a few people did. On a campus of
17,000 students and faculty, what are a few
compliments worth?)
Schacffcr points out thai the wrilers did
the besi job they could. Even if that is true,
is that any reason lo publish a magazine? I
submit thai il is not. All Ihosc who think
they arc capable of being lalenlcd writers
arc not. I question the ability of the writers
or BSF.
Thirdly, Schacffcr points out thai if 1 do
nol want to read the magazine, I do not
have to. As a free person and an Interested
sludcni here on campus,! have a right lo
read anything thai I want. How was 1 lo
know that Ihe . . . Bui Seriously Folks
magazine would be as trashy as it was until I
read it? By looking al the cover?
Mosi importantly, though (Schacffcr,
lliis is the main poini of my Idler), I would
like lo address Schaeffcr's comment which
blatantly called me a moron. Where Ihe hell
he comes off calling me a moron is a
mystery lo me, The facl thai I did riol rind

To the Editor:
In the November 12 issue of University
•News, Malcolm Sherman outlined his views
on University governance. Unfortunately,
these views merely replicate his longstanding, narrow-minded elitist attitude In
this case I do not consider elitism a deiriment — all students respect a professor's
knowledge and stains, a status that many of
us someday hope lo achieve. The detriment
is, in fact, his narrow-mindedness which is
just Ihe reason sludcni input is needed.
Mr. Sherman proposes ihe creation of a
"faculty forum." The creation of such a
body has long been suggesled by facultj
and students alike. The reason is obvious:
faculty often have difficulty disseminating
their ideas lo their Senate representatives;
this body could be a forum'for ncccssarj
Unfortunately, Mr. Sherman lias
perverted the original idea of a Facility
forum by attempting lo include ii in lire

and urban workers, peasants, students,

mental capacity should be questioned
especially since he also missed the main
point of my last letter (kind of sad for a college student, don't you think?). The day I

writer, I will do so. (Maybe Schaerfer
should also do the same.) Unlil then, 1 will

Many ASP-ites found this task both difficult and disturbing. Imagine . . . forcing journalists to express Ihe falling powder. How could they possibly be objective? With
so many sides lo a snowflake, something is bound to appear biased? Jusl who, what, where, when, and how cold?
It's the wee hours of the a.m. and right now I can't think
of any sight that looks as beautiful as this here first snow.
I'm dreaming of bed. It's six a.m. and the forgotten
traces of sleep from the night before barely remain. I walk
dormward and I see no birds, feel no wind, hear no
crickets. Everything is white. The snow surrounds me;
envelopes me. But instead of shivering, I'm warm. 1 can't
help but smile. I realize I'm completely alone except for
Ihe white. Suddenly, the bed is unimportant. The snow is
comfortable enough.
Guilt. For me, snow and guilt go hand in gloved hand.
The first snow always brings back memories of mother
shoving me out the door In scarf and galoshes, as the
Great "beat Dad to the shoveling so he shouldn't die of a
heart attack" Race got underway. But no mailer how
quickly I zipped up my snorkel (The blue parka with the
furry hood and orange lining), Dad was always there first,
cutting perfect walled grooves with the aluminum shovel,
piling Ihe snow up in neat little domes.
He loves il! So why should I spoil his greatest Joy in life?
Because mother is standing at the front door with her arms
crossed. Darned if you do and darned it you don't; the
great parental catch-22.
The first snow is always exciting. However, il looses its
delicacy and beauty when the dogs turn il yellow and the
cars fade it black. How can anyone appreciate the slush
and the shoveling? . . . I love il!
I love the snow . . . it separates the women from the
men as they freeze wailing t wenly minutes for the peagreen SUNYA-lms to plow its way to ihe snow-buried
students. . . it forces me to study a little more as il makes
ihe warm library a more attractive place to slay . . . it
makes me laugh to watch the "downslalers, " who consider six inches a reason to close down the campus until
' they can clear It away . . . it forces the japs to stop wearing those ridiculous heels for fear of tumbling into a snow
hank and leaving their designer imprint behind . . ,—S.S.
government (SA) is a forum in which
students may discuss their ideas but il is
most certainly nol included in the University governance system (how foolish a notion
that would be).
Furthermore, Mr. Sherman's description
of a faculty forum would all but make Ihe,
existing University Senate a useless puppcl
body in which neither faculty nor students
would desire membership. His faculty
forum would be "senior to the Senate; and
have jurisdiction over any mailers il so
desired. II seems that Mr. Sherman's only
reason for retaining the Senate is to
minimize "injury lo sludcnls' egos." While
no one ever wishes to have his ego hurl I
think my belief in democracy would suffer
more If Mr. Sherman's proposals were implemented; after all, they would bar Ihe
largest constituency of this campus from
fair representation.
Another alternative suggested is lo
reduce sludcni representation. Mr. Sherman argues that sludcnls arc an organized
bloc and "outmaneuvcr" the faculty. In
reality, students are not an organized bloc
— they arc popularly elected from different
constituencies and vole unanimously on as
few issues as do the faculty,
He In it her contends thai students
"oulmanuevcr" the faculty because they
ounumber "faculty prcscnl and voting."
This seems lo further the case for student
representation on the Senate as their
presence indicates their concern (faculty
outnumber students 67 to 22).
There is no question that a faculty body
should be created to allow for greater faculty input bin ii should be al Ihe same level as
the sludcni government. It should be an instrument for a specific constituency
(faculty) to air their beliefs among
themselves. Besides alienating sludcnls on
this campus Mr. Sherman's governance
system will give the faculty sole control or
University affairs withoul necessary input
and feedback from others.
Students not only study and work on this
campus bin they also live here. II would be
unjust to deprive ihis constituency Of their
right to fair representation (I.e., lo have a
say in mailers that affect llieir duy-lo-day
I was standing around one day twirling my golden locks
when a six billion pointed object struck me on my eyelash.
As I fell into a swoon, a luxedoed man with a sensual
while chest lifted me up and waddled me into his igloo.
After I recovered, we nosed around, Eskimo fashion. I
was so happy. He called me his little penguilette. But I
soon tired of his sad attempts at amusing me by bringing
me dead fish in his mouth. We had a terrible row. Afterwards there was cracked ice lying everywhere. He set me
adrift on a glacier. Now I work in the Hilton Hotel shoveling buckets of ice for the guests, trying lo
Snow. . . was it Bleeker or West 4th Street? I don't
remember; everything was blurry. A spoon or a straw is
fine, but I prefer a rolled-up hundred dollar bill; It's
smooth, and numbing, and. . . and. . . ah . . . oh
I faded back, and spotted a most unworthy receiver for
my aerial, squalled down behind a car. I rolled right,
avoiding the onrushing while defense, and set up — in
point blank range, with the receiver in the open. It was a
liming pattern, and right as he turned the ball would be
there. Precision is of the essence. I only gel one chance,
and if 1 blow il the ball goes ihe other way. He got up too
quickly and I had to throw on the run because the pursuit
was too much. But the zing was still in the old arm, and
Ihe bullet was there — bulls eye. His ear stung, and he
cried out in an anguish thai meant only one thing — the
snowball season had begun.
—B. B.
Tlw ASP hardly condones the behavior of those
students who take it upon themselves to roll nature's
crystal flakes into projectiles and launch them at their
fello w men or women. If they have all of this unnecessary
excess energy, perhaps they are being fed too much. We
therefore propose that UAS adopt a rationing system lo
feed each student no more than 1000 calories per day 1500
calories on Dutch Quad).
These moves are drastic, we realize, but our obligation is to the University's best welfare and, when
necessary, its orderly protection.
The first snow went right through my lorn shoes. It fell
great as I crunched down on the little flakes. The path tip

The ball of white made a dull thud as It hit Ihe windshield of the car. The lires screamed as the old man leaped
out of the car and brandished Ihe baseball bat. "I told you
goddamn kids . . . ,." he screamed. The last words were
muffled under the symphony of snowballs flying toward
the nemesis of youth.
You're sure this school Is the ugliest you've ever seen.
Then, all of a sudden, the first snow comes along and
transforms the hard concrete into something soft and
etheral. The harsh lines of the buildings become blurred
and unreal. The world becomes calm — the work and Ihe
pressure isn't so important anymore. You walk on the
blanketed podium and suddenly you 're not so sure . . .
"You know you're getting older when the first sign of
snow falls, and rather than getting excited and anxious,
you get nervous, aggravated and downright depressed." If
Miss Malunowitz, my 5th grade teacher, knew what she
was talking about, then perhaps I can rest assured that I
have yet a few more years before my worries and responsibilities outweigh all of my joys.

Snow, like sex and war, is over-romanticized. I am trying desperately to envision myself making snow-angels on
the hillside by day, then escaping lo the warmth of a cozy
fire and '44 cognac by night. Yet the images of obnoxious
junior high-schoolers armed with iceballs and agonizing
minutes of wailing in sub-zero Weather for SUNY buses
remain all too clear in my mind. Damn the poets — they

Campus Crusade
In the Editor:
I found the article on Campus Crusade
for Christ by Marie Corlissoz in Friday's
issue of the ASP Interesting. I was very
pleased lo learn that'the ASP was making
an effort lo explore our fellowship and lo
publish an informative article for the sludcni body. However, there were some comments made by Marie Corlissoz which I feel
do not accurately rcprescnl our perspective,
We do share a "fervent" desire to share
Christ, and we do believe thai those who
hear and reject him will be separated from
God for eternity, bul Christianity doesn't
slop (here. I'm disappointed Ilia! something
I look great effort In emphasizing when 1
was interviewed by Ms. Corlissoz has been
omitted, in pari, and Ihus Crusade has been
presented In such a way as lo leave many
with misconceptions ol' Ihe organization
and ils purpose.
The article reads: "Crusade has provided
a redirection for many of ils members. 'It's
what gives me strength, love, and hope lor
Ihe future,' said Brickman ."
Christ changes lives, nol Campus
Crusade. Crusade functions as an outreach
of God's love, bul il is not Ihe source of il.
II docs provide biblically based leaching,
friendships and supnorllvcncss amongs
members. Bui Crusade is no replacement
for, nor does il try lo oiler, the impact on
one's lire that results from having a personal relationship with God, through Jesus
Christ, In addition to this, while wc do
believe thai rejecting Chrisi will result In a
separation front God, our faith goes
beyond whether one is going to Heaven or
Hell. Chrisi said He came thai wc might
have life, and have il abundantly. He wauls
us lo have a life with a purpose, with meaning, with a fullness that fills the empty searching void, we continually attempt to fill,
deep down inside each of us.

Skidmore Little Match For Women Swimmers
by Sharon Cole
The Albany State women's swim
team was supposed to have a tough
meet but that wasn't exactly the
way it turned out. Instead, the
Danes rolled right over their opponents from Skidmore, 93-45.
Last week, Albany coach Sarah
Bingham had said that she expected
the meet to go down " t o the last
relay," but Albany, as it turned
out, led the meet all (he way and
was never seriously challenged.
The small Skidmore team lacked
the great depth of the Albany team
as they only entered one or two
swimmers in each
"Obviously we had the great depth
and numbers, bin w'e also won most
oUheevenls in good times, proving
thai we also have good swimmers,"
Bingham said.
The team was good enough to
establish a new pool record,.
Lauriann Balnes, a freshman, swam
the 2IX) yard individual medley In
the record time of 2:43.31.
[Albany's Anne Wilson came in scIcond in the event and Skidmore's
Robin King came in third.
' Another pool record was set by a
S k i d m o r e swimmer, Eileen
Hanawalt, .doing the 100 Yard
breaslslroke in 1:19.40. Dane
i Robin Brown placed second and
•Skidmore's Elizabeth Russell came
in third. Hanawalt won three events
.out the the total of six thai Skidmore won,
Albany won 10 out of lite 16
events, beginning will) the first
event, the 200 yard medley relay, in
2:11.09. Danes Beth Larson,
Brown, Baincs, and Donna Staracc
won the event for Albany, while
Danes Capture 10 Of 16 Events
Skidmore took second and another
relay team from Albany look third.
One of Skidmore's six wins came
in the second event, the 500 yard
freestyle, as Hanawalt finished the
20 lengths or the pool in 6:16.55.
Joan Nugent and Sheila Fitzpatrick
took second and third for Albany.
In the 100 yard freestyle Tracy
Moran came in first for Skidmore
in 59:95, while Albany's Staracc
and Lisa Solnck finished second

But that was it for the Danes,
who seemed to get infected by the
inconsistency that has plagued thern
since day one. With the beginning
o f the second quarter, Albany
began making costly errors, and
Springfield look advantage.
The first mistake happened on a
second-and-eight from the Albany
22. On the triple option, Fiorito attempted to pitch to Nearing around
the right end, but the ball hit the
ground, and Nearing had to cover
up way back on the seven. T w o
plays later, Hardy came in to punt
from the 10, and Cioffi called for a
fair catch on the Dane 39.
The Chiefs wasted no time. On
their first play, C i o f f i , who came
o f f the bench to run for 84 yards
last week against Wagner, slid
through the right side, broke a
tackle, and turned on the burners,
outracing the pursuit for 39 of his
156 total yards, and Springfield's
first score. Jeff Bennett hit the
extra point, making it 17-7.
The second big miscue came
under similar circumstances. On the
Albany 26, Fiorito and Nearing
again couldn't connect on a pitch,
but Chief linebacker and A l l American candidate Doug McKcnney pounced on the ball on the 14.
Quickly, quarterback Jim Collis hit
a leaping Jon Cherry in the end
zone. Bennett was good with the
kick, cutting the Dane lead to
17-14, which was where it stood at
the half.
Albany did have one more shot

this was one o f the crucial plays
that snuffed out his team's chances.
" 1 thought that was a good p l a y , "
he continued, " T h e bad thing was
the result."
The third quarter saw no change
in the score, bul Albany did get a
bit of luck. With a first-and-goal on
the eight, Cioffi fumbled into the
end zone, and D o n
recovered for the Danes.
A t the end of that period, facing
a fourth-and-onc on the Chief 3 1 ,
Ford elected to let the clock run out
so Arango could attempt a 44-yard
field goal with the wind at his back,
but he was wide anyway.
Albany only had one more real
chance to score. After going from

Obscene Gesture Prompts Arrest
by Beth Cammuratn
A scuffle involving six or seven
campus security officers, a
sophomore and two of his friends
occurred in front of a busload of
students at the circle last Saturday
at 1:30 a.m. The three youths were
arrested and charged with assault,
harassment, obstructing governmental administration and resisting
arrest, according to Assistant Director of the Department of Public
Safely John Hcnighan.
According to Hcnighan, "the officers were driving by about 1:30
a.m. An individual gave the officers
the finger and made obscene
remarks. He was kind of a disheveled individual. They drove by again,
and the same thing happened. They
stopped, got out, and asked him
(the student) for ID. After some
(discussion, he gave it to them reluctantly. He appeared lo be extremely
.intoxicated. He tried to grab the ID
|back. A couple of his non-student
friends tried to prevent his arrest.
More officers were called to assist in
dealing with the three. Things eventually came to push and shove.
"It was nothing the officers initiated. They were trying to deal
with disruptive individuals. Several
officers were slightly injured. One
received abrasions on the hand; one
had his heel kicked. Their uniforms
were pretty ripped up. The students
were not injured, bcalcn, or abused
psychologically, in any way.
Sophomore Richard Ramee was arrested. The other two Kevin and
Scoit DcLong, were also arrested
and charged with obstructing
governmental administration. All
three were arraigned in Albany
Police Court."
Witnesses lo the incident, SA
Vice President Brian Levy, Scolt
Greer; and Marshall Garcia,
however, loll the story differently.
According lo Levy, the officers
physically abused the student. He
said, "The cops called the guy over
for ID. The guy gave him the ID.
The cop said something like 'Don't
f—ing give it to me like that or I'll
f—ing break your fingers.' The
guy tried to leave. They wouldn't let
him. At this point 1 got on the bus.
The next thing I saw was the cops
pinning the three kids to the hood
of the cop car."
Greer, a senior, filled in more of
Ihc details. "I saw the guy give the
cop Ihc ID. The cop looked at it
and shoved it back into his face.
Then, the security guy pushed the
kid away with his forearm. The student didn't make any conlacl with
the cop. The sludent ran away. The
cops chased him and pushed him up
against the bus. The three then
moved around from (he side to the
front of Ihc bus struggling. The sludent and one of the officers fell and
were wrestling. One' cop grabbed
Ihc student by Ihc waisi as-he stood
up. One of the student's friends

went up to one of the officers and
asked him what was going on. The
cop shoved him against the car and
tried to push him inlo the car. This
continued until two other cop cars
gol there.

"Although the guy was definitely

ROTC will have an "extension center" on campus.
"Spare the necessity of IfOTC students traveling. "
pholu: Hiiannt h..l»l...|l
by Susan Milligun
Approval has been given by the
" Council on Educational Policy
(EPC) to allow negotiations to
begin for an ROTC "extension
center" on campus, according lo a
University Senate report released by
Dean Snow, chairperson of the
Undergraduate Academic Council.
According to SA Vice-President
Brian Levy, the decision was made
at last week's executive committee
meeting of the University Senate.
However, the proposal must pass
the entire University Senate before
the program can be implemented.
According to the report, it was
the consensus of the EPC lhat "the
proposal will spare the necessity of
our ROTC students traveling to
other campuses in order lo lake
ROTC courses." Sludcnls involved
in the program currently attend
classes at Rensselaer Polytechnic
Institute (RPI).
The report slated further that
"existing arrangements pertaining
to academic credit will remain unaffected by the proposal, which commits the university to provide
classroom and contact office
Students enrolled in ROTC will
not be required to wear uniforms on
the SUNYA campus, and no instruction involving the direct use of
weapons will be conducted on the
The EPC further feels that such
an arrangement would offer
"efficiencies of energy, cost, and
lime to our ROTC students."
Students Invited to Gripe
At Public Trustee Hearing
by Sylvia Saunders
• Students arc urged to voice their opinions at a public SUNY Board
of Trustees hearing this Tuesday at the SUNY Plaza in downtown
Albany, according lo SASU delegate Tony Giardina.
"It's important for sludcnls to show the Chancellor (Clifton R.
Wharton, Jr.) and the Board of Trustees that they are interested," he
said. Topics which may be discussed range from tuition and dorm increases to mandatory student activity fees.
This is the first of four mandatory open hearings scheduled this
year, as a result of SASU lobbying efforts in 1976.
Students will be asked lo prepare statements concerning Universitywide issues. In the pasl, students have raised subjects such as Affirmative Action and apartheid. Persons wanting to present prepared
statements will be given five minutes to speak at the meeting. They are
required to submit written statements to Martha J. Downey, secretary
of Ihe University, State University Plaza, Albany, N.Y: 12246.
Giardina said, however, that those students who do not have time to
submit written statements may still testify at the meeting. They will only be give three minutes to speak, he said.
Students don't have to testify, Giardina added. "Just their presence
is important, We have to show them we are concerned." He explained
that the Chancellor has drafted a bill proposing that the mandatory
hearing law be rescinded because there isn't enough student participation.
Giardina said they are hoping to get at least 100 SUNYA students
and 50,SUNY students from schools across the stale.
Tuesday afternoon from 12:30-2:00 p.m., SASU will hold a briefing
in the Off-Campus Lounge for those students who wish to attend. In

Reagan Undecided on Draft
i WASHINGTON (AP) — No decision has been made
on Sen. Mark Hatfield's request to cancel plans to begin
registering 18-year-olds for a potential draft, says an
aide to President-elect Ronald Reagan. Kevin Hopkins,
Reagan transition team military advisor, said Wednesday the request had been received but no decision made.
Congress approved President Carter's draft registration
plan last summer, but so far only 19 and 20-year-olds
have been registered. Registration of 18-year-olds is to
begin on Jan. 5. Jack Robertson, Hatfield's press
secretary, said the Oregon Republican suggested that
Carter be asked to delay implementation until after
Reagan's inauguration Jan. 20. Under Hatfield's plans,
Reagan, who has said he is opposed to draft registration, then could cancel the registration.
Funds for RDF Delayed
WASHINGTON (AP) — No decision has been made
propriations subcommittee has delayed action on the
Carter administration's request for additional funds for
a Rapid Deployment Force, Sen. John Stennis,
(D-Miss.) says. Stennis, the outgoing chairman of the
subcommittee, said Wednesday that the panel decided
to set the request aside until hearings can be held to
"fully define the mission and give studies of the amount
involved." "This does not mean the Rapid Deployment
Force concept is not endorsed," Stennis said. "Quite
simply, there were questions which needed to be
answered." Stennis said a major question in his mind
was the extent to which allied nations would contribute'
to the force, a special military team designed to respond
quickly to crises. "It is my belief that our allies must
join more vigorously in maintaining the security of ihc
Free World," he said.
"Gang of Four"on Trial
PEKING (AP) — The "Gang of Four" and six other
former high-ranking members of China's communist
regime went on irial today before a special 35-judgc
court in Peking on charges that could get them the death
penalty. A Foreign Ministry spokesman said the trial
was declared open at 3 p.m., 2 a.m. EST in a courtroom
at No. 1 Righteousness Road, and bailiffs led Chairman
Mao Tse-tung's widow, Jiang Qing and the other nine
defendants to the dock. The Courtroom, near Peking's
main square, the Tien An Men, was filled with 880 spectators invited from all over China, the spokesman said.
But Western reporters were barred, because state security matters were involved, officials said earlier. The first
session was expected to be taken up entirely by the
reading of the 20,000-word, 48-count indictment against
the 10 defendants and six other dead "culprits" of what
the government call the "Jiang Qing and Lin Piao
counter-revolutionary cliques." The 48 counts are
grouped into four major charges — that they and their
allies were responsible for the deaths of more than
35,000 people during the chaotic Cultural Revolution
from 1966 to 1976, that they framed and persecuted top
party, government and military leaders in efforts to seize
power, that they plotted to murder Mao and stage an
armed coup in 1971, and that they plotted an armed
uprising in Shanghai in October 1976, a month after
Mao died.
parts of $100,000 in bribe payoffs in return for agreeing
to assist non-exlstant Arab Shieks with immigration problems. Murtha, who was identified as a conspirator In
this case but has not been indicted, said he was interested in getting the Arabs to invest millions of dollars
in his economically depressed congressional district in
central Pennsylvania, but said he told Thompson he did
' not want to get involved In accepting cash. Murtha met
with the undercover agents posing as representatives of
the sheiks on Jan. 7 in a Washington D.C. townhouse.
He told them he was interested in finding jobs for his
community and did not want any money "at this
point," according to a videotape of the meeting. He
went on to explain in that meeting that he felt it
necessary to participate in several business deals with the
Arabs first in order to build up some trust. In crossexamination today, Murtha explained that the reason he
told the undercover agents he might later change his
mind about the bribe offer was because he was "afraid
I'd be dealt out" and he sorely wanted the investments
for his district.
Iranian Attitude "Positive*
WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Edmund S.
Muskie said today Iran is laking a positive approach to
U.S. proposals for release of the 52 American hostages
and "that attitude is welcomed." "I think the way in
which the Iranians have handled our proposals is
positive," Muskie told reporter after.a breakfast
meeting with visiting West German Foreign Minister
Hans Dietrich Genscher. But he said he has not received
a response from Iran to Ihc U.S. proposals transmitted
last week through Algeri&n intermediaries. Depending
On Iran's reply, Muskie said he was ready to send a toplevel negotiating team back to Algiers. Reports from
Tehran quoted Prime Minister Mohammed Ali Rajai as

PEORIA, III. (AP) — The University of Chicago has
enlisted federal and international authorities in its
search for some 4,000-year-old Egyptian artifacts stolen
this month from a Peoria museum. The university,
which lent the exhibit to the museum, has notified Interpol, the FBI and other agencies specializing in the

$50,000 in Bribes Alleged
NEW YORK (AP) — Rep. John Murtha,( D-Pa),
testified today at a federal Abscam trial that Rep. Frank
Thompson Jr.(D-N.J.), told him there was $50,000 in
"walking-around money" available if he would meet
with representatives of Arab sheiks and that the cash
would be split between Murtha, Thompson and Rep.
John M. Murphy (D-N.Y.). The testimony came at the

Pilot Blamed for Crash
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — The pilot was responsible
for the crash of a Korean Air Lines jumbo jet that killed
him and 13 other people, including three Americans,
South Korean Investigators said today. Witnesses said
the pilot, Yang Chan-mo, 49 had time to escape from
(he cockpit but insisted on remaining inside the crashed
and burning plane to the last moment. Yoon Joo-sun,
head of the joint government and airline inquiry team,
said an investigation showed the plane's computer,
engines and landing gear were functioning correctly
before the crash. He said visibility was estimated at better than the minimum 874-yard limit, and the pilot did
not report any trouble when he talked to the control
tower minutes before the crash. The jet,- carrying 226
people on a flight from Los Angeles, brushed an antiaircraft gun emplacement as it landed in dense log at
Seoul's Kimpo Airport Wednesday, and its wing hit a
military vehicle parked off the runway, Korean military
sources said. The plane then crashed on the runway and
burst into flames. Authorities said six crew members, including the pilot, and seven passengers died in the crash.
The 14th victim was identified as an airport security man
killed by flying debris. They said 15 people were injured.

Regents To Check Teachers
NEW YORK, N.Y. (AP) — In an effort to strengthen
leaching in the slate, Ihc Board of Regents has approved
a plan that includes controversial provisions for licensing teachers and establishing teaching as a recognized
profession under the regents' jurisdiction. The licensing
provision, approved Thursday, would require all new
teachers and administrators in the public schools to pass
competency examinations before qualifying for a job.
The exams would evaluate an applicant's writing and
compulation skills, general teaching skills and
knowledge of his particular teaching specially. Under
the second provision, teachers would join 30 other professions, such as medicine, engineering and accounting,
currently overseen by the regents. A proposed stale
Hoard for Teaching would supervise teacher testing and
fix guidelines for developing new tests. Both provisions
arc part of a comprehensive plan which, to be implemented, would need the approval of a $15.6 million
appropriation by the state Legislature for fiscal 1982.

Atrocities like Manuel's execution are part of everyday life in El
Salvador today, according to
Daniel Flores, who spoke at
SUNYA last night, on behalf of ihc
San Salvador Solidarity Group.
According to Flores, the govern-

the legs off Ihe bodies after they kill
them. Then they dump the bodies in
the street with a sign over the bodies
saying that they were subversives.
They put acid on the faces so they
can't be identified."
Flores said that since January,
the government has killed over
4,000 civilians.

SUNYA's acclaimed Minority
Criminal Justice Doctoral Program
will continue to operate, even
though Ihe federal agency which
supports it is In Ihc process of being
dissolved, Program Coordinator
Scott Kristensen said yesterday.
The SUNYA Minority Criminal
Justice Program began in 1977
under a grant from the United
Slates Justice Department's Law
Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA), Kristensen
said. According to School of
Criminal Juslice Dean Donald J.
Newman, ihe University has
already received approximately $3-6
million for the Minority Program
and related research. The demise of
Ihe LEAA under Ihe Carter Administration will force Ihc Program
to seek alternate forms of funding
after June, 1981.;
"I am concerned about nol culting this program, I want it continued, improved and expanded,"
Kristensen said.
The Minority Program aims to
educate minorities and to enable
them to obtain top-level positions in
Ihc field of Criminal Juslice. According lo Kristensen, "There is a
critical shorlage of minority policymaking positions in the field of
Criminal Juslice, despite the fact

Kristensen said that ai the time
the Minorily Program began,
minorities were undcrrcpresentcd in
higher education. "In 1977 there
were only Iwo black Ph.D. candidates in Criminal Juslice in Ihe
U.S., and our School of Criminal
Juslice had no minorities in the
first-year class," Kristensen said.
Under Ihc LEAA gram, 30
minorily students from around Ihe
nation were recruited and received
fellowships for their studies here al
SUNYA. According lo Kristensen,

few were hispanic, and more than

"Wc have the strongest concentration of minority students in

Krislensen said. "Last year, 30 percent of the first-year class were
black or hispanic — a significant
change from having none in 1977."
Al presenl, there are 10 minorily
students in the Masters programs
and six in Ihe Ph.D. program.
Almost all of ihem need fellowships
to continue their studies, Dean

To the Editor:
O n Sunday, November 8th, Cindy
Greisdorf, a writer for the ASP, requested
an interview with me o n JSC-Hillel to be used as a feature article in the ASP. I was told
that the ASP frequently presented such
features on SA groups, giving students the
opportunity to find out more about campus
activities. I agreed to the interview on this
After reading the write-up in the Aspects
section o f Friday, November 14th's ASP,
and the articles surrounding it, I am left
feeling deceived by my interviewer, as well
as in question o f the ASP staff's intent in
their choice o f articles used to exemplify
what they titled, "Religion — Organized
and Not —'Its Impact on Students." At no
point prior to or during the interview was I
informed that JSC-Hillel would be part o f a
3-fold feature. I find it hard to believe that
my interviewer would simply forget to i n form me that the purpose o f the interview
would be broader than a feature o f JSCHillcl alone, and therefore, call to question
her true intent on interviewing me. Had I
been aware of this broader purpose, I
would have approached it from a very different perspective for a number of reasons,
which I will outline.
The question posed on the front page of
the Aspects section reads, " H o w Docs
Religion Effect Y o u ? " The focus of my inicrvicw, as verified in the article, was not on
Judaism the religion, but rather upon JSCHillcl the organization. I f the purpose of
the feature was to focus on religion and
how it affects the student, why was I interviewed on the organizational aspects of
JSC-Hillel? When one is looking to represent the effects o f religion on the individual, one docs not approach it from an
organizational point of view. Rather, one
approaches the individual.
I f 1 had been approached and asked to
give my personal thoughts and feelings on
Judaism, I would not have given an account
of JSC-Hillcl. JSC-Hillcl as an organization, and Judaism as a religion, and its effects on me, are two different subjects and
should be dealt with as such. I note here
that JSC-Hillcl docs reach out to meet the
religious needs of the student, yet at no
point did my interviewer focus in on this
aspect of the organization.
In addition to my feeling that the article
on JSC-Hillcl was not representative of the
Jewish religion and its effects on me, I also
found that the articles which shared the
centerfold of Aspects with JSC-Hillcl were
not particularly rcprescntatived o f religion
in general. It seems to me. that i f the ASP
o f religion on campus.
Instead, I found three totally unrelated
articles, the only connection between them
being the connection in the minds o f the
Aspects editors. One article, on JSC-Hillel,
didn't say anything about Jewish prayer
and religious pralice on campus. Ms.
Oberlandcr, it seems, was never told that
the interview was about religion on campus.
The interview was about all o f JSC-Hillel,
dealing with Students For Israel and
students interested in bowling, not Jewish
students interested in Judaism. Only tw,o
sentences were devoted to the liberal and
traditional services on campus, supposedly
the main focus of the centerfold.
The second article I read dealt with the
CCC which I felt was not representative o f
religion on campus. The CCC is an
evangelistic organization. The Roman
Catholic and Lutheran services were not

published in Aspects, Friday, Nov. 14, it .is
our opinion that Ellen Weinstcin ridicules a
5,000-year-old tradition which she knows
nothing about. She stereotypes Jews and
Judaism in models similar to those used by
anti-semitcs throughout history. It is unfortunate she never had a meaningful Jewish
experience. Perhaps this was the fault of the
family in which she was reared; never-

theless, we feel this docs not give her the
right to indict all o f Judaism. T o be an
open-minded individual, one must criticize
from a position o f knowledge, and not attack using rhetoric as one's only weapon.
She perpetuates the myth o f the Jew as a
hypocritical, uptight, shallow, and moneyhungry creature. Poor Ellen. She may be
exactly what she emphatically denies —
hypocritical. I n one sentence she claims to
be " a fanatical agnostic" in "disdain for
organized r e l i g i o n . " She goes on to say it's
" g r e a t " i f it "makes them happy and really
believe in what they're d o i n g . " Obviously
this is hypocrisy.
. Ellen portrays her uncle as the sly,
hypocritical Jew who sends his nephew a
taped Bar Mitzvah portion in the hope that
his nephew might find some feeling toward
Judaism. Maybe her brother gained no
knowledge o f Judaism f r o m this, but docs
this mean that the affirmation o f thousands
of young Jews each year with their age-old
tradition is meaningless? The possibility of
a realization o f belonging to a tradition
might inspire her brother to learn about
what it means to be Jewish. Ms. Weinstcin
portrays her aunt as the uptight, stiffnecked Jew who casts evil eyes towards
disrespectful children during the "serious"
religious ceremony o f serving matzoh ball
soup. We think there is a lot more to
Passover than the way Ellen's aunt served
The holiday is a celebration of freedom.
Unfortunately, Ellen never celebrated
Passover at a meaningful seder. Poor
Oramps is the money-hungry Jew who saved a whole airline fare from Miami on the
Bar Milzvah deal. We feci this could not
have been the only reason for his j o y upon
seeing two o f his grandchildren Bar Mitzvahed. Ms. Weinstcin tries to demonstrate
the shallowness o f Judaism throughout the
article. This is evident in the description of
the Anne Frank society her mother was a
member of. We are disappointed that her
only " c l a i m to f a m e " as mascot did not
push her to explore the depths of the
Judaism that permeated the life o f Anne
Frank. I f only Anne Frank could have lived
to see Ellen now. She would be disgusted by
the way in which some Jews have abandoned their heritage. Unfortunately, Anne
Frank was murdered for her "accident" of
Jewish birth.
As members o f this University community, we arc insulted by the suggestion that
Judaism is just shiksas, matzo balls and the
K-Tel Bar Mitzvah. T o us and millions o f
other Jews, Judaism is a way of life. II is a
religion; it is a nationality; it is a moral and

answered the always respectful Jonas.
"What's Ihe matter with the two of you. I

"Well, why the hell would I?," asked
Jonas sternly. The calm and respect In his
voice had disappeared, only to be replaced
by rage.
"Because you're broke, damn it, that's
why. You spend all your money on gold

A Question Of G r a v i t y
When Ihe escape is complete there Is a
sullen separation, a gradual perforation
along a thin line, and the walls Imperceptibly
buckle. 1 am at once, dully aware of act and
scene, exposition and juxtaposition against a
soft blur of lifted ceiling and entering sky: ol
surrounding heads lowering into a morass
from which I have come mysteriously unfixed — to pivot, float, and whirl.
The only divinity Is escape because It Is
release from mind's grasping tenterhook and
the mundane maintenance of its fleshy companion. The quality of escape Is dependent
upon which countryside we have chosen lo
bail out over before we are pushed from
behind. How often we resist its awesome,
engulfment which begins at the molecular
level to penetrate through difficult cells ol
dark avarice and dense ego. We set out to
block Ihe Intruder who balks^at our careful attempt to construct fortifications of I-beams
with steel rivets. We are the painters of rustproofing who discover too late how Insufficient our protection is from escape which
begins as a germ In a feeble cell and make
Itself comfortable within membranes.
Powerless Is conscious mind to warn the cells
which indifferently feed the Inner discontent.
I soon become that greater group of cells
— stolen by a germ of restlessness. My
hands will not move to formalize plans; my
eyes cannot focus on a singular goal. I am
mute, choked, stopped up, and motionless
In that release which has loosened every
molecule and overtaken every passage ol
my bulk.
Divine is thai which Is finally relief. Immense, yet locked within; a deep secret that
cannot be revealed to the waking. It Is built in
from conception, Its Information contained
In egg and sperm. Divine Is that which loses
Its substance In conscious analysis or activity,
the rude working of Ihe mind and body. It Is
that secret the dead cannot reveal to Ihe living, which we seek and still do not find on
our separately plotted courses; all fixed with
the same chilling conclusion.
Could It be that we know nothing of the
Plan which we In waking, conscious, pur-
poseful ambition hope to gain a little ground
In, If only to finally rest? Perhaps this divine
escape is the crux of all our questlngs and
queslionlngs, Its depth and eluslveness providing an intellectual tickle centuries upon
centuries old, In the tiny, blunt, fiercely
curious collective mind. Divine, Infinite,
unknowable — escape plays rudderless
within; gives no excuse; has no course
makes no promise.
Escape is musings and missed appointments; unconnected thoughts. It Is Irrational
conclusions, changed motions, dashed
plans, Inconsistencies. It thrashes smooth old
claims and welNpaved notions. Il Is Ihe Scorpion of the soul lhal destroys and brings
anew. Il is the shedding of dead skin.
My mind's eye Is my escape which does
not distinguish between the f l u s h ,
materialistic and solvent world and the free
grass, weed and earth of step and sight. I
may mourn over the loss of a wad of dollars

In my hazed upper vision breaks a covetous

Improving our life — physically, menially,

requires a totally different outlook on life, a
sharp redefining of what Is Important In life.

My razor is too sharp, my toes are too wide

Those nasty habits, also make It difficult
for us to change established ways of doing
things, or thinking or feeling. Habits lock us
into certain response patterns, so we tend to
resist any change In our accustomed routine,
even If II Is In our best Interests to do so.
Developing habits, particularly If they are
good habits, allows us to conserve higher

waste human energy and limit human

Hypnotism: Benefits f Mind Manipulation
Jjou atf-is, l}allincj Gn-iLzzfi.
saSjyypn°sis was looked upon as a kind of parlor stunt, or
as a devil's device to control men's minds. 1m£ _ J r _ • ; ages of people crawling around a stage on all fours or
else revealing deep dark secrets continue to give hypnosis a bad
name. People have derived their chief impressions of hypnosis
from stage (and perhaps staged) demonstrations of it.
But hypnosis has nothing to do

natural. It is now solidly allied
with psychiatry and medicine, and is steadily improving its
usefulness as a clinical tool against pain, fear and a host of physical
disorders. Since 1958, both the American Medical Association
(AMA) and American Psychiatry Association have issued
statements accepting it as a useful and valid technique in the hands
of qualified people.
However, as yet, hypnosis is not a licensed profession. Under
current state law, anyone can put up a shingle saying he or she is a
hypnotherapist. There are, however, controls on who may be
licensed by the state as psychiatrists, psychologists and social
workers. Those controls include educational requirements and a
passing grade on a licensing examination.
Morris White, a retired New York State licensed social worker,
has run the Tri-City Hypnosis Center on Central Avenue since
January. He's treated everything from fear of flying to frigidity and
is a firm believer in what he terms "the power of suggestion" or
"altered consciousness."
He first became interested in hypnosis when he started using it
for treatment with delinquent children. He took a course with the
New Jersey Association for Advanced Ethical Hypnosis.
White said the biggest problem he has in his new practice is with
his clients' misconceptions concerning hypnosis. "People are
basically afraid of three things," he said. "They ask: Will I wake up?
Will I say something I don't want to? and Will I do something embarrassing?"
White maintains that none of these reservations have any basis.
"You don't do or say anthing against your moral principles. Actually," he added, "if you really know the person and gave him a coujple of drinks, he probably would act the same way he would under
Aside from that, White insisted that if he asked something
private that you wouldn't want to answer, you'd either wake up or

not answer him at all.
| ^ ^ ^
In reality, he explained, "I've never hypnotized anyone. I give
suggestions. If you follow them, you're hypnotized."
"Everybody is hypnotizable," White said confidently. "You're
born with the ability."
There are, of course, those who are more susceptible than
others. White said those who have good intelligence, a great deal
of imagination, the ability to concentrate and are willing to relax
usually are the easiest to hypnotize. He added that there is no
evidence that they suffer from weakness of will or that by undergoing repeated hypnosis their willpower become progressively
In terms of susceptibility, sex and nationality has little or no influence. According to most authorities, childen are more easily
hypnotized than adults. In addition, those from the upper class and
in generally good health will probably be better subjects.
The hypnotic state varies from person to person. The trance
superficially resembles sleep. The subject experiences a profound
state of relaxation, accompanied by sensations of lightness and
heaviness. The eyes close and the breathing automatically slows
down. Other signals a trained hypnotist looks for include changes
in voice quality, reduced movement, lessening of blink or swallow
reflexes, slower pulse, or more dramatic events such as catalepsy,
amnesia or regression.
The subject may become clairvoyant, give psychometric descriptions, see into the future, read the past, make spiritual excursions
or hear and see events occurring there and elsewhere.
The ability of hypnosis to alter perception and thinking has many
practical implications for some people, White said. Long-time sufferers of migraine headaches have been cured permanently by incredibly short periods of treatment with hypnosis. People dying of
cancer have experienced some relief. Memories have been hypnotically recovered and disarmed of their ability to cause unconscious torment. Asthma has been cured; weight has been lost;
and smoking habits have been broken.
Major surgery has been conducted with nothing more than hypnotic analgesia to eliminate the pain. There is no generally accepted explanation of how the anesthesia can be induced under
hypnosis. Apparently the process involved is one of dissociation In
which one level of consciousness is blocked by another.
It has also been reported that it is possible to suggest paralyses or
contractures of the limbs. Precisely how such altered states of consciousness and bodily functions can occur under hypnosis still remains a mystery.
No one really understands how or why hypnosis works, White
said. "We only have case after case to back it up."
In his private practice, White specializes in control of smoking,
eating and anxiety. He said hypnosis is able to help control these
impulses because it builds self-confidence.
In the weight control sessions, he seats eight of his clients at a
time in a dark room. He plays a monotonous tape with suggestions
which have a pyramid effect. In addition, he has weigh-ins and
distributes a diet. This combined with the hypnotic sessions breed
great success, he said.
His smoking control program is structured into four sessions.
The first session is designed to find out why the person smokes.
The second session he tells them to practice saying "I have smoked
my last cigarette at 2:30 next Tuesday" twenty times each night for
a week right before going to bed. The last two session are for
positive reinforcement.
White said he has an 80 percent success rate with these specialized programs. For the weight programs, he charges $10 a week for
45-minute session; the smoking program costs $60 for four sessions.
White insists that hypnosis can be used for relief of most
anything. "It's like Hitler's philosophy," he smiled. "If you keep telling anyone to do anything long enough, he'll do it."
He said hypnosis is a natural release. He said everyone
undergoes an everyday trance from time to time, when they aVedeeply absorbed in reverie or preoccupied with what they are doing. "In these moments, we are fully focused, oblivious to what
happens around us," he said. The football fan watching the Superbowl on television, for example, is fully alert to the game, but
unaware of his body sitting in the chair or his wife calling him to
In addition, he joked, hypnosis is a much cheaper and safer way
to enter into the desired "altered state of consciousness," than
either alcohol or drugs.
Morris White is one of approximately eight practicing hypnotists
in the area. He says that "business is good" and that he has a full
schedule during the three days he is open. "I think people are starting to take hypnosis a little more seriously. It's become more than
mere entertainment," he said.
Journey To The Flaxen Field
Believe me. When I went on this assignment I had absolutely no intenlion of being
hypnotized. Although I was extremely
curious about the subject, I never thought I'd
actually have the nerve to go through with it.
I remember my first experience with hypnotism.
Several years ago I saw a "professional"
demonstrating his "power" on the stage. It
held my interest like a circus sideshow, as the
hypnotist went through his usual stage procedure. He made his subject do all sorts of
things any normal human being would never
ordinarily do. He commanded his victim to
fish for whales in a goldfish bowl, bark
around the stage on all fours and give a
Fourth of July speech. Finally the master
awakened his very embarrassed subject
shortly before his victim was about to take his
clothes off.
I went home feeling thoroughly entertained. But mostly I went home glad that I didn't

I continued to feel incredibly relaxed,
perfectly at ease, my thoughts drifting. I was
aware of his words, able to note my own
mental response to what he said. It felt like a
pleasant, light meditation. I thought to
myself: if this is hypnotic trance, I'd be happy
to stay in it for as long as I can. Then
something peculiar happened. He kept saying the same things over and over . . . Soon
I was in a flaxen wheat field with massive oak
trees and a light warm breeze. My body could
actually feel the warmth of the sun he
described. Every one of my muscles was
mentally ordered to relax. I was as calm and
peaceful as the eye of a hurricane.
After several minutes of this tranquil scene
in which all my conscious problems disappeared, he said he would awaken me by
counting to five. I was extremely disappointed. I felt he was wrong. I figured I
wouldn't come out of the trance just yet,
since it was so enjoyable. As he started slowly
counting, I hoped he would stop. I was sure
that I would not come out of the trance at
five, but would stay for a few more minutes to
relish in its peacefulness. I hoped he wouldn't
feel bad when my eyes didn't open at the
count of five. Then "five" came and my eyes
suddenly opened. I had no other choice.
And that was it. No barking on all fours,
deep dark secrets or prophesies for the
future. 1 was able to remember everything.
There were no magic feats. It was just a feeling of extreme relaxation that can only be
compared to floating in calm water or enjoying a good backrub. It was kind of like that
buzz you get just before you start drinking too
much. It was hard to believe that what seemed to only last a couple minutes was really
over half an hour.
I had absolutely no concept of time — but
It really didn't matter. I didn't want to leave

fortunately, like Frampton, they still seem
directionless. All Shook Up Is a mixed bag of
tunes with so many different styllngs thai one
can't put a finger on a distinct Cheap Trick
sound. Actually, they remind me of one of
those late night T . V . ads for K-Tel where
one group, usually called "The Sound Effects" or something like that, sings "the best
of today's sounds," but can't do a damn
thing on their o w n .
This Isn't to say that the members of the
group aren't talented. Vocalist Robin Zander
gives a real smorgasbord of different styles
that carry a tune while Tom Peterson Is a
more-than-adequate bass guitarist. Bun E.
Carlos, with looks that go with that great
name of his, is a fairly good percussionist.
Finally, there's Rick Nielsen, who, let's face it
folks, does look pretty much like a )erk, is a
damn good guitarist. The problem Is thai the
band gives the impression that the sum of the
parts doesn't add up to a whole.

Groups like the Police and Clash are

pected, due to some equipment problems,
guitarists Cat and Rugs, keyboardist Ibo,
Carrot on percussion Willy on drums and
bassist Richie opened with "Far, Far, Away."
The tune had the classic reggae elements:
driving repetitive bass, and chlnga guitars.
But Third World adds another feature. At
center stage, keyboardist Ibo, floated In and
out of leads and rhythms to greatly compliment the band's sounds.
The band moved through the set at a
snow-melting pace, pausing between songs
only to rap with the audience. These breaks
by Rugs and Ibo touched on oneness (unity),
their expressed pleasure of playing In Albany
(rumour has it they were less than thrilled)
and on encouraging the audience to get up
and move about to the music.
Third World then moved through some of
their more popular tunes, "96° In the
S h a d e , " " C o l d Sweat," and "Street
Fighting." The songs featued some excellent
group work as well as some solos.
A n Interesting but somewhat uncharacteristic guitar solo was played by Cat.
Through the up/off-beats and rhythms,
Cat broke through with plenty of long, sus-
tained notes, while prancing about the stage.
Solos by Ibo and Carrot seemed more In
context. Sliding up and down the keyboard,
Ibo moved about center stage, dreadlocks
flying. Carrot's solos shared the spotlight
with bassist Richie and the rest of the band,
who put down their Instruments and danced
about on stage.
Ending the set with a much harder, but
just as melodic version of "Now That We
Found Love," Third World brought the entire large crowd to Its feet, and left the stage
only to be brought back by the loud applause.
The Initial Albany reaction to this appearance of a reggae band was quite
favorable. The eventual effect reggae will
have on this area remains to be seen. It Just
seems to me that It's time for Albany to wake
up to music's newest force.

Billy Jack, The B i r t h Of Reason. A n d He
When I was in high school, Tom Laughlin's trio ol "Billy Jack" movies were one of the
hot cultural happenings. In an era where we adolescents were all painfully aware ol having
missed the sixties, Billy Jack reminded us that some of the causes were still there. And Billy
Jack did more than protest. When things got out of hand, he appealed to the popularity o l
the oriental martial arts, and dispatched bigots, bullies and probable war criminals with a
series of flashy hapkido kicks. Billy Jack was incorruplable, and that's why we loved him.

The Idea of Tom Laughlln selling the right lo The Trial of Billy Jack lo Warner Brothers
was Inconceivable, and none of us ever expected to see ihe film on network television.
Well, Tom Laughlin's been short of cash lately, and Tuesday night, CBS showed Tlxe
Trial of Billy Jack on prime lime, and It had a Warner Brothers leader on It. Twenty minutes
had been cut from It, including a major flashback detailing Billy Jack's Involvement In a My
Lai-style massacre. The opening aerial shots of desert vistas, over which were superimposed the casually reports of Kent State and other schools In which students were killed, were
cut out, leaving only the one that said "Freedom School: 3 Dead, 39 Wounded." It didn't
make much sense anymore. Maybe I can't blame Laughlln. Times arc tough. It's just lhat
somewhere Inside me there's an Irate teenager who knows Billy Jack wouldn't have done It.
They did leave most of the violence pretty much alone, except for the slow motion closeup of the groin kick. And they did enlarge the frame a couple of limes during the climax, so
you couldn't really see the bullets Impacting. Bui Ihey left In the close-up of Billy Jack's foot

They did, however, edit the soundtrack. For example, when Ihe arrested Billy Jack Is

ahead and take your leak." In other words, we never really know why Billy Jack gets out of
the car. Middle A..ierlca and Rev. Falwell must be offended by vulgar euphemisms for bodily functions, I suppose. Of course Il's okay to hear the agonized screams of dying coeds who
have been shot In the back with M-16's. This doesn't bother Rev. Falwell much.
How do you make anarchy commercial? Thai's essentially what Tom Laughlln did. How
do you gel away with taking an amateurish film and still keep It commercial? That's

To Ihe Editor:
Obviously, last Friday's ASP (Nov. 14)
feature on religion could not give equal and
extensive coverage to every religious group
on campus, but there is one group that is
quite unique in several respects that has
never been given more than fleeting attention — the Atheists Ecumenical Council
Perhaps the reason the A E C has maintained such a low profile is the nature o f the
group. It is not a club — there are no dues,
officers, trips, dances, etc. — and there is
no r e c r u i t m e n t , p r o s e l y t i z i n g , o r
evangelism whatsoever. In fact, it is not
even a religious organization at all I Nor is it
anli-religious, it is simply nonreligious.
Our meetings consist o f quiet, rational
discussions o f any topics o f intcresl to those
present, unburdened by dogmatic, restrictive, outmoded beliefs. What makes them
unique? A l l of the participants are atheists.
"Atheists." Say it. It's not a dirty word.
We're not Communists or criminals, rapists
or robbers, murderers or muggers. We are
intelligent, rational people who do not feel
the need to invoke any supernatural entitles
or activities lo explain our universe, or help
us live in it. " A t h e i s t " means " o n e who is
without g o d ; " it is a passive Ihing — we
don't believe their is a deity, and we don't
believe there's not a deity. Atheism does
not require an active belief; it has no principles, tenets, dogmata, or other.artifacts
which limit thought and potential.
We consider ourselves very open-minded;
we are quite tolerant o f the beliefs of
others, and arc strong supporters of
everyone's right to believe, think, and
speak as he or she wishes. I f everyone
thought that way, this world would be a
much nicer place to live.

To the Editor:
I feel compelled to reply to Ellen Wcinstein's column o f November 14.
I came from a home with about the level
of observance o f Ellen's, although I was
sent to Hebrew school. When I was a preteen, I began to think that G-d, as an omnipotent force, could not exist, but thai
people themselves were special and sacred.
Acting on my belief that I should devote
my life to helping others, I began doing a
loi of volunteer work in a nursing hometype ward in a veterans' hospital. There I
saw old men disrespected and unwanted by
society. I wondered, why bother taking care
of them, since they led unproductive lives
and did not make a contribution to sicicly?
I began to wonder what was the basis of my
belief thai all people were sacred, which I
somehow intuitively knew must be true.
I also began to question what was the
basis or our moral code. What is absolute
about morality, i f it dms not come from an
absolute origin? For example, Hitler and
Ihe Nazis truly believed that the extermination of gypsies, Jews, and Slavs would
benefil the rest or the world. What made
their belief wrong?
As I continued to do social service work,
'"esc questions remained with me. The
result of „ i y searching for ihe answers over
he Past eight years is that I have come to
believe in G-d more and more.
My belief in organized religion developed

we each need the support from a community which recognizes us as worthwhile
human beings and from the subgroup
within i t , our close friends, who provide us
with a more intense emotional support
when necessary. Psychologically, the
respeel and support from others (call il
love, i r you will) is essential for every
human being. The "team e f r o r t " provided
by the group religious experience fulfills a
deep human need.
Ms. Wcinslein implies in her article that
society needs improvement. How can this
be done without the team effort of those
who believe that others arc worth helping
because they arc sacred and special, which
is essentially a religious belief?
A disturbing comment that Ellen makes
is " I f anybody with power and good intentions the He is reputed l o have wouldn't
have let the world turn out like this."
Religion believes that G-d created people
with intelligence and the free will to determine their own actions. It is not G-d who
made Ihe world like I his, but man because
he did not use his intelligence lo make the
right choices. It is Ellen's intelligence that
causes her to doubt G-d as she thinks and
quesiions her search for a meaningful life.
It is her intelligence that will bring her to
G-d. I can sec that she is already on Ihe

As I read the Aspects section of the ASP

I hope so.
— Jeffrey L. Sehulman
In regard to the criticism the ASP has
received, we feel il is necessary to explain
our viewpoint. In assigning stories concerning JSC-Hillel and the Campus Crusade for
Christ, we did not seek to research every
religious group — to do so would be impossible due to limited space. Ambiguities
would still exist as lo where lo draw the line
between "religion"
Instead, we chose to focus on two groups —
the largest, and most fervent — as examples
of organized religion at SUNY A.
We apologize to anyone who feels that
Ihey were either misrepresented or misled
by our interviews. Asa rule, our writers are
not familiar with the final layout policy.
The stories were intended to look into the r
background, composition, and organization of Ihe two groups, and we stand by our
opinion that these stories provided objective accounts. We did not "fail" in our inlent.
As the two feature stories simply outlined
.the structure of those groups, Aspects also
sought lo publish a subjective article. We
neither condemn nor condone the opinions
expressed by Ms. Wcinslein, Inn it was just
that — an opinion. We fell that it mis interesting material offering a criticism oj a
religion's structure.
We urge any mulcts who weir so highly
disturbed by our presentation to examine
their own open-mlndedness;forsomeone
suggest that a story not he printed is an important indication of that person's lack of
respect for others' opinions.

Pressure Your Profs,
By Monday, a better picture will be formed as to whether
students will continue to be on University Senate after this year.
The faculty has been given a referendum to consider and the outcome will begin to set a tone for the actual vote, which will take
place in February.
Student representation on Senate is essential for the University
community. A true Senate must be comprised of representatives
of all those being governed. To exclude students would only limit
the wider spectrum of thought that they offer. This would cause a
loss to the legitimacy of the Senate.
Our student Senators have proven themselves more than worthy. If there is a correlation between attendance and commitment, students clearly belong as much as their faculty counterparts.
The presenl structure is not ideal by any means. Faculty
representatives oulnumber students by more than three to one.
To further cul or eliminate sludent representation would be a
Obviously, those members of Ihe faculty who are strongly opposed lo student representation are more likely to complete the
referendum. We hope our allies on the faculty will show strong
support for students on Senate.
Wc urge all students to remind their professors to return the
referendum with a vole for students; that being continued Senate

"The program has been very successful," Kristensen said. " I n the
past two years, some of the minority students have been In the top of
their classes, and some of our
graduates have gone on to teach in
universities, do research in the field,
or become middle-managers in
criminal justice agencies."
San Salvador

compiling a bibliography to the
available literature pertaining the
minorities and the field of Criminal
Justice. The Center, which is an attempt to create a mechanism by
which students will be able to conduct research in their area of concentration, reportedly opened a few
weeks ago and may have the
bibliography ready to be published
in two months. Kristensen hopes to
sell this bibliography to help fund
the Minority Program.
It's also possible that the Program may receive additional funding from left-over LEAA money,
although they won't know until this
March, Kristensen said. "There is
approximately $2 million- approved
for spending in 1980, but not yet
spent," Kristensen said. " T h e
Justice Department identified our
program as one of the better programs in L E A A . We're a high
priority with them."
The Minority Program was
recently nominated by the University as one of six "outstanding and
distinctive programs" on campus,
Kristensen said. It has also
reportedly been praised by President Carter as "exemplary."

Opposition to the government
has grown rapidly in recent months,
according to Flores. In April of this
year, all of the different opposition
groups in El Salvador jointed to
create a Democratic Revolutionary
Front, which has made them much
more powerful.
Flores says that the rebels in El
Salvador are gelling no aid from
Communist governments, and if the
rebels are successful in overthrowing the government, they would be
interested in developing a friendly
relationship with the U.S. Flores
says that there is "no truth" to the
accusation that if the rebels do
overthrow the government, a puppet communist government will

"The U.S. government is looking
for excuses to intervene in El
Salvador. There is no truth to those
rumors," he said.
El Salvador is one of the poorest
and most over-populated countries
In Latin America. The per capita
annual income is $480, and
unemployment approaches 60 percent in some areas, according to the
El Salvador Solidarity Committee.
Flores said the rebel forces in El
Salvador have recently been growing increasingly stronger. He said
the next few months will be critical
in determining what happens in Ihe
Flores said, however, that
without U.S. aid, the government
would fall to the rebels.

and posters were lost or damaged
by the fire, and much of the rpom,
suite and neighboring bedroom experienced smoke damage. Windows
in the room and suite were shattered
by the heat.
A stairwell adjacent to the room
also had some water and smoke
damages. Middle Earth, which is
located across the hall from the fire,
also experienced some smoke
Middle Earth was forced to close
its office and telephone services until Thursday according to one
worker, Valerie Fahey. Other
workers, Robin Schwatz and Laurie
Nicholson were forced to leave the
office by the fire.
The four girls in the suite stayed
with friends overnight and were
then housed in a suite in which
Soviet Exchange students were
originally supposed to stay. "Since
the program was cancelled Ihe room
has been used for emergency housing." according to Doyle.

Big East Makes It Tough To Be New Kid
(AP) Villanova Coach Rollie
Massimino has a dream about the
future of the Big East basketball
conference. •
But he is also contemplating a
nightmare about how his Wildcats
will fare in their first season in the
"This is a very competitive
league, one of the best in the country, and in three years it should be
the best in the U.S.," Massimino
predicts. "The Northeast' has the
biggest cities and a lot of the best
high school players."
"Now, the Big East will help us
be more competitive."
But competition can be a doubleedged sword.
"I don't know what we're getting
into," Massimino said. "We're the
new kids on the block."
And a lough block it is.
Georgetown, Syracuse, St. John's

tournament teams last season and

The Danes were moving. The

If there were a list of rivalries in

Alfred was next. All-American candidate and Saxon quarterback Bob
Schuster had a field day throwing
short against the Danes, hitting 26
of 38 passes for 269 yards and a
touchdown. This, coupled with
another week of ineffective offense,
resulted in a 24-6 Saxon victory.
So the Danes were down again.
They had lost two, won four, and
dropped another pair. The Inconsistency was rampanl. After two
super-explosive offensive performances that calapulcd Albany into
national statistical recognition, the
Danes had stalled. Motivation, intensity — Albany needed a spark,

Indeed, there were a few that probably should've gone the olher way.
Ford said that if he knew Ihe causes

he has begun lo narrow them down,

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Good fighters learn by experience. So what
did Roberto Duran and Sugar Ray Leonard learn about one another in
Montreal that will help them in Iheir rematch for the World Boxing
Council welterweight championship Tuesday night in the Superdome?
Duran, who won the title on a close but unanimous decision June
20, is cagey when asked.
"I learned a lot," said the Panamanian Wednesday. "I'll showVou
at the fight."
As for what Leonard learned that might be useful in the rematch,
Duran said, "I don't think he can do anything more than he did in the
first fight. If he docs anything more, I'll be ready for it."
"There have not been any drastic changes," Leonard said of battle
plans. "I just found out I have a left jab. I'll just pace myself more
carefully this time."
"The lefl hand will be in play Ihis time," said Angclo Dundee, who
trains Leonard. Dundee and Janks Morton, another Leonard aide,
feel Leonard didn't jab and move enough in the first fight and (hat he
shouldn't have tried to fight it out in the early rounds when Duran
gained his winning edge.
"We're going to.fight him, but Ihis time later on when Ray has
taken the steam out of Duran," said Dundee.
Freddy Brown, who helps train Duran, doesn't think it matters what
strategy Leonard employs. "Duran will fight the other guy's fight,"
said Brown. "When Oman walks Into the ring, he's the boss."
Ray Arcel, another of Duran's strategists, feels the first fight might
have left a scar on Leonard. "It affected Leonard mentally," said
Arcel. "It took all the guts out of him, it's a boy in against a man."
"The 15 rounds with Duran is nil he needed," said Dundee. "He
knows Duran now. He's seen Duran. Duran doesn't punch a lot . . .

Another junior transfer from

originally from East Carolina
University. Due lo eligibility rules
Neil won't be able to swim in the

"Neil is probably the best first year
prospect we ever had in our swim
program. He swims the backstroke,
breaststroke, along with the individual medley. His freestyle times
are quite outstanding for Division
III competition. He'll be right there
with Kevin Ahern. His times are as
fast as Steve Bonawitz's in the
backstroke,"White said. "This
could be a good push for Steve to
maintain his status as our number
one backstrokcr."
"Neil's personal best in the individual medley is 2:02.0, which is
well under Albany's school

record," said White.
Bonawitz commented "Neil's

All right, the Danes were 5-5;
that's .500 ball. But the only teams
that arc concerned about being .500
arc those that aren't usually too
good, the ones that spend most of
their time under .500. The Albany
State varsity football team certainly
does not fit into that category. The
last time Albany fell near or under
that was in 1976 — the year before
they went to the national playoffs.

Ford. "Wc don'l ever want to be
satisfied with 5-5," he continued,
calling Ihc season, "Ihe tips and
downs of 1980."
There are olhcr similarities between 1980 and 1976, when Ihc
Danes went 4-5. Thai was the last
time that Albany lost their first Iwo
ballgamcs — before this year. Coincidenlally, those losses were to Ihe
same teams both times.
Albany by no means had il easy
lo begin with. Graduation look
away an explosive quarlerback, and
a core of top-notch, experienced
defensive personnel, What they
were left with was a senior at the
helm of the wishbone, who had all
the physical tools he needed to
make the offense go, but lacked the
ever-important game lime necessary
lo perfect those skills. There was
still a capable crew manning the
Dane 4-4, bin injuries decimated
that contingent rather early.
Besides their personnel situations, the Danes had another thing
to think about right away — Ithaca
Defending National Champs, top
ranked in the country, and Albany
had them first on the schedule.
Ford felt that there was probably no
good time to play the Bombers, and
he was probably right. The Danes
played what was their best losing effort. The final score was 40-21, but
Albany trailed by a mere six points
with 13 minutes left in the game.
Ithaca just pulled away, though.
"We had enough opportunities,"
Ford noted.
The next week brought Southern

was'a team thai Albany needed to
have, and. needed to beat — which
they did with mechanical efficiency.
There were a lot of aspects of the
Albany game that had not yet come
to the fore. The Danes had a
"stable" of great runningbacks, as
Ford put it. They had not yel
established themselves as a dominant force in a game. The special
learns, an area that Ford fell could
and should turn games around,
wasn't yet a factor.
Against Brockport, the wishbone
churned out 370 yards on Ihc
ground, and put 42 points on the
scoreboard (even with three
touchdowns being called back).
Albany defensive back Don Bowcn
returned punts for an average of 27
yards per try, and rar) one back for
a 53-yard touchdown. Some signs
were there, but a few were still missing, and they were the key ingredients thai most of the season lacked — consistency , and intensity.

"1 felt that we (the coaches) had

disgust. "Oh-and-two — that's probably not the best way to start
It certainly wasn't, and if there
was a perfect time for the schedule
to provide some mercy, it was at
this point, in week three.
The Danes traveled lo Brockport

Albany's other' competition, but
Willi Fordham came a glimpse of
what was necessary as far as intensity goes. After leading 9-0, Albany
fell behind 14-9, with nine minutes
remaining in the game. The Danes
then inarched 76 yards in 16 plays
for the score, and a 17-14 victory.
"I didn't think wc could pull it
off," Ford suid afterwards.
The other half of those two
crucial components — consistency
— was shown not to be evident
when Albany went to Buffalo to
play the thcn-nationally ranked
Bulls. This lime, the Danes were
ahead by a 24-8 score at the half.
Albany was totally dominating
play, rolling off 218 rushing yards
in the first two quarters to Buffalo's
56. "We looked as good as a foot-
ball team can against a strong
defense," Ford noted about
Albany's first half In Ihat game.
But as became more obvious as
the season progressed, Ihc Danes
were unable to put together Iwo
good halves of football, Mistakes
enabled the Bulls to get two
touchdowns in the second half, and
really give Albany a scare. But Ihe
Danes held on to win, 27-24.
Homecoming brought Albany
some more easy pickings. A not-sogood Cortland squad fell victim to a
hot Dane offense. After gaining 445
yards in total offense the week
before, Albany cranked up for an
incredible 572 yards total, and 552

by Susan Milligan
A 25-year-old SUNYA graduate student was killed yesterday in an
automobile accident on Washington Avenue near the uptown campus,
according lo Albany Police.
