Hartwick Gives Tired Albany A 96-76Drubbing
by Bob Belliflore
ONEONTA — A weak and weary
Albany State basketball team
played its fifth game in the last nine
days Wednesday night — their third
on the road.

most exhausing stretch in their 24

Hartwick College team, and were
shellacked by the Warriors, 96-76,
at Harlwlck's Binder Physical
Education Center.
A patient Albany offense was
able to penetrate the Hartwick 1-3-1
zone defense early, with four of the
five starters getting inside hoops,
and staying baskcl-for-baskct with
their Division 11 opponents for the
first nine minutes. But the Warriors
changed to a 2-3 zone for the rest of
the game, and forced Albany lo
shoot from the perlrnc!
"I felt their outside shooting was
suspect," said Hartwick head
basketball coach Nick Lambros.
He was right as the Danes wcnl
on to connect on only 30 of their 79
field goal attempts for a dismal 38
percent for the game, and 34 percent in the second half.

paramilitary civil guards led by a lieutenant colonel look

Premier-designate Leopoldo Calvo Sotelo as replacement for Adolfo Suarez, who resigned three weeks ago.
The officers told the Cabinet members and members of
Parliament to keep calm "until news a military government was established." Both Calvo Sotelo and Suarez,
who remained as caretaker premier, were among the
hostages. EFE said that when Suarez asked, as head of
government, for an explanation of the action, a civil
guard told him to shut up and escorted him from the
chamber. Defense Minister Agustin Rodriguez Sahaguri
also was told to shut up. The Defense Ministry alerted
all troops to stay in barracks, said everything was under
control and the police surrounded the Parliament
building. Reporters who fled the building before it was
blocked identified the revolt leader as Lt. Col. Antonio

Tejcro was given a six month prison sentence. The civil

WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) The former Energy
Department official who gave $4 million in federal
money to charitable organizations on the next-to-lasl
day of the Carter administration was called belore a
congressional subcommittee today to explain his actions. Paul Bloom, former DOE special counsel, was
scheduled as the star witness before Ihe House Government Operations subcommitlec on environment, energy
and natural resources. The panel scheduled the hearing
lo take testimony on Energy Department enforcement
of oil company pricing violations and the disbursement
of money obtained in settlements of court actions
against the companies. Bloom was expected to explain
his Jan. 19 decision to give the $4 million in seltlcmcnl
money to charitable organizations so they could
disburse it lo poor people having trouble paying their

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) Secretary of Slate Alexander M.
Haig, Jr., in an interview leleviscd Sunday, said he will

Ihc Reagan administration has given top priority to
other issues. He told the Washington correspondent or
Israel Television that President Reagan has given first
priority to his economic policy and added, "Without
that, United States foreign policy will be severely
damaged." Reagan also is giving priority to improving
relations with Canada and Mexico, the secretary said.
"If you can'l be perceived to get along with your

Gas Tax May Increase
WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) The Reagan administration is considering a two-ccnl-a-gallon increase in the
federal gasoline tax to help state and local governments
finance highway maintenance. The proposal, which
would raise about $2 billion annually, would need congressional approval. Budget director David A.
Stockman told the National Governors' Association on
Sunday the administration may ask that states be allowed to pre-empt some or all of the additional revenues
raised through an increase in Ihc tax, which now is four

Porn Movies Nixed
by Sylvia Saunders
Albany State Cinema (ASC) has
been denied permission to show
Deep Throat or Devil in Miss Jones
on campus by Director or Student
Activities Jim Docllcfeld, according
to ASC President Mike Fried,
University policy mandates that
any movie under litigation in
Albany County cannot be shown to
the SUNYA community. Both requested movies have been in litigation for over a year under original
charges of obscenity. Doellereld
said his office periodically checks to
sec what cases arc still active.
Fried said he thought the movie
should be allowed to be shown
because Ihc university is separate
from the community. Docllcfeld,
however, said the university should
strive to be a part of Ihe community
and consequently denied permission.
"We were quickly told wc
couldn't do it," Fried said. "There
isn't anything wc can do about it.
We need Doellefeld's signature as
well as (SA Controller) Ira
Fried said he thought one or the
movies might be allowed since Deep
Throat was shown on campus two
years ago by Tower Easl Cinema.
However, Doellereld said the only reason the movie was shown was
because Tower East had already
firmly committed itself. Doellefeld
said if they tried it again, he
wouldn't let a "mistake" happen.
Fried said he thinks students
should be able to see whatever
movies they wanl. "Deep Throat
was shown Iwo years ago. That
means half the school hasn't been
given the opportunity lo see it. A lot
of other movies are available. Bui a
lot of students want to sec these two
particular movies out of curiosity."
In addition, he said, X-rated
movies always attract a huge audience. "Wc would make a fortune

He urged student reporters to not

facts behind them and check the

their own colleges and universities.

Production of "Grease

by Sandy Schaikowaitz
The Indian Quad production of Grease will be performed in the
quad carcteria on February 27 and 28 and March 1 despite rumors or
cancellation due lo vandalism.
On Ihc weekend or March 15, Indian Quad was the site of several
incidcnls of vandalism. A large plate glass window, valued at approximately $300.00, was shattered in Ihe flag room. Two couches were
dcsiroyed. On Sunday a food fight erupted in Ihc cafeteria, leaving the
carpel and curtains slaincd and a mess that University Auxiliary Service (UAS) employees were left lo clean.
UAS decided that some punitive aclion should be taken againsl the
quad, according lo Crease producer Diane Bartosch. One course of
aclion, proposed by UAS Assistant Food Service Director Peter
Haley, was lo cancel Ihc quad's production ol Crease. However, according lo Bartosch, none of Ihc members of the easl was involved in
Ihe incident. Haley informed Bartosch later thai week thai ihe cast of
Grease -would be able to use Ihc cafeteria as planned for its production.
Most Students Want Distribution Requirements
by Mark Fischetll
The ASP randomly surveyed 253
undergraduates and 33 teachers lasl
week to find Ihc reaction of the
SUNYA academic body regarding
Ihc imposition of distribution requirements here, a proposal now
being investigated by special committee.
Overall, 67 pcrccnl or SUNYA
sludents favored dislribution requirements. An average of 19.9 required credits was suggested.
Although only a small sample of
teachers was taken, those surveyed
were highly in favor; 88 pcrccnl
requirements, Teachers suggested an
average of 23.9 required credits.
Only 38 percent of freshmen
surveyed favored requirements, and
freshmen prefarrcd as tew mandatory credits as possible.
The percent in favor increased
slcadily wilh class year, as did ihc
amounl of required credits suggested. Upperclassmen generally
staled that as they advance in their
education Ihey appreciate more,
and thus belter understand the
necessity for a well-rounded curriculum. Seniors supported requirements Ihc mosl. Many said
they regret nol having taken a
broader curriculum, while others
who fell they had taken a wide
range of courses arc glad they did.
Freshmen, however, staled greater
concern in finding a major than in
becoming well-rounded.

than oilier sludcnls did. Science
and math sludcnls least favored
distribution requirements, but ihc
disparity among majors was nol
The ASP survey read as follows:
"There is presently a committee on
distribution requirements which
proposes that, lo graduate, SUNYA
studenis would have lo complete
one or two courses in each of Ihe
rollowing calegories: Other
C u l t u r e s , Social Sciences,
Literature, and Fine Arts, Natural
Sciences, and Symbolics.
" R e q u i r e d courses would
amount lo a minimum of 18 credits
and a maximum of 36, depending
on how the final proposal is devised.
"Pro: A person who graduates
with a degree should have been ex-
posed lo certain kinds of knowledge

prepare him nol only for a job, but

"Con: A student is limited in

The person's class, major, age,

' following questions: "Are you in

Why or why not? Whether in favor
or not, how many credits would be
a fair amount to require (18 to 36)?

have you, in your opinion, taken a

Alcohol Proposal Criticized
by Chris Koch
Governor Carey's proposal to
give wine and liquor licenses (o
supermarkets has met with angry
opposition from liquor store
owners, and mixed reaction from
Wine and liquor is currently sold
in supermarkets in California and
Illinois, while states such as
Massachusetts allow supermarkets
to sell only wine.
"1 think Carey is shooting from
the hip on this one," said Director
of Consumer Services for Price
Chopper/Sue Ann Richco. "If he
docs decide to think this proposal
out, 1 think he will drop it entirely."
"We sell wine in Massachusetts
with no problems," she continued,
"and wine is a natural with the food
wc sell, but selling liquor would be
going one step too far. Wc have a liquor problem in this country, and I
think that selling hard liquor would
only compound the problem."
Richco added, "We arc a
business that depends on young
people, and we can't let seventccnyear-olds al the register sell
whiskey. I don'l think they would
be able to handle it."
William McDivitt, Legislative
Chair of The State Federation of
Package Stores, angrily criticized
the Governor's proposal. "This is
an ill-advised proposition made off
the cuff and without much
thought," he said. "Well over 50
percent of our liquor stores arc adjacent to supermarkets, and I'd say
two thirds or the liquor stores in the
slate will go out of business if this
gets passed,"
When asked to respond to the accusation on the part of some liquor
store owners in Albany that large
New York wineries such as Taylor
and Monsieur Henri are pushing for
supermarket sales, McDivitt said,
"I haven't seen any of the big winerics lobbying for this in Albany,
but the New York Slate Food Merchants Association has been actively campaigning for it."
The Food Merchants Association
is an organization of large and small
grocery stores in New York State,
of which Price Chopper is a
member. Price Chopper's Richco
said that while the association had
campaigned for supermarkets sales
two years ago, they are no longer
lobbying for the proposal.
"Our activities were part of an
overall drive to'try to improve sales
of New York wines. We wanted to
begin supermarket sales to try to
stop the influx of California wines,
which have really damaged the wine
industry here."
McDivitt also said selling liquor

The Executives are a five member band

drawing crowds with an appealing mixture of
danceable originals and Innovative cover
versions of early rock and Motown standards.
The band Is centered around the

describes himself as a "simple song form
player," has written all the original material

of classical guitar training have greatly Influenced his playing and writing.
"Being classically trained helps my
understanding of musical forms and harmony," Sande explained. "Technically It has
helped me play guitar. I know where the

Scottle disappears because screenwriter Bernard Slade and Jack Lemmon, who plays
the part, refuse to explore the character In
any depth.
The initial difficulty Is that Scottle, as
played by Lemmon, Is neither funny nor
charming. His routines grow tiresome after
the first ten minutes, his Jokes are stale and
stupid, and his cavalier attitude Is immature.
Yet we're continually told how charming
Scottle Is, how much everyone loves him,
and what a great man he Is. Our sympathies

so Interesting. But Tribute is so overdone, so
loud — even in Its quietest moments — that
its obvious these scenes are being played only for audience effect; there Is nothing real
motivating them.
One of this movie's biggest problems is Its
hero. Scottle Templeton Is a press agent who
supposedly squandered his serious literary
abilities In order to become a crowd pleaser
by writing movies. He Is a constant cut-up
who refuses to take anyone or anything
seriously. He jokes his way through life
avoiding both responsibility and emotional
commitment. The character is not without
Interest. We all know someone like him: the
class clown or the guest al the party who
makes everyone laugh and then goes home
alone, at least partly by choice. People who
use humor as a defense mechanism are not
rare, but any Interest we might have had in
Slade, who Is adapting his Broadway
show for the screen, doesn't bother to confront any of Ihe conflicts he's wrlllen Into Ihe
situation. If Scollle's lifestyle Is so great why
is his private life such a disaster? His wife left
him, his son hates him and we're asked lo
admire Scottle. The "this Is your life" tribute
staged for him at Ihe end seems a confirmation of the old theory that Ihe number of
friends you have Is more Important Ihan the
depth of those 'friendships. Throughout the
film we're shown the problems wilh Scottie's
way of dealing with things, yet at the end
we're asked to embrace and admire it.
Jack Lemmon acts so horrendously that
he too makes it difficult to sympathize with,
or even care a b o u t S c o t t l e . T h e
"llghthearted" Scottle mugs shamelessly, like
a third rate vaudevllllan who's never seen a
camera before In his life. A n d as Scottle, the
anguished dying man trying lo make sense
of his life, he stares, sighs heavily, and closes
his eyes a lot. These are Ihe stock Lemmon
mannerisms, the ones he's been using for
almost thirty years. In fact this Is the stock
Lemmon performance, no different than Ihe
ones he gave In those awful sex farces he
made In Ihe sixties, or Saue the Tiger. The
latter was overplayed so badly that it won
him an Academy Award and, lo and behold,
he was nominated again this year for
Tribute. The competition Is too strong for
him lo win again, but the fact that he
prevented Donald Sutherland's magnificently understated work In Ordlnarv People from
being recognized, Is tragic (I am, however,
aware that the fault for this lies with Ihe
Academy and not Lemmon).
Tribute won't settle with being simply a
tear-jerker. It will stop at nothing short of
"slobber jerking." It wants the audience crying hysterically because they have been so
moved by the experience they've just had,
but It overplays Its rather skimpy hand and
ends up being a disaster. Tribute Is a movie
totally lacking In taste, dignity, and, except
for Lee Remlck's performance, any sense of

types, or cerebral "lonely" types.
If you answered "true," then you are in
agreement with Jack Helfner, author of Ihe
long running off-Broadway play Vanities
which toured at the Egg last weekend.
Mr. Bruce W. Fox
The play follows three women, played by
Sally Sockwell, Sharon Ullrich and Jane
Dentlnger, from their high school days as
cheerleaders, through college sorority
aSventures, and finally lo five years later In
"Ihe real world." One ends up a traditional

The play especially attempls lo destroy Ihe
myths surrounding good looking "popular"
girls who people generally envy, and think of
as .lucky and well-ail justed. Slereotyplcally,
"popular" girls become prom queens, maintain a constant supply of boyfriends, and If
they play their cards right, easily secure a
husband and money for the rest oi their
The question posed in Vanities Is: are
such women really lucky? A n d If they aren't,
are women who grow up "non-popular"
ultimately any better off? You can't help
coming away from Ihe theater thinking about
these questions. The play however offers
no clear cut answers.
My friend Lynn, a graduate of SUNYA,
thought Ihe point of the play was to show
that no woman can ever feel truly fulfilled.
•Lynn majored In RCO, though, so there's no
telling how badly damaged her brain Is.
Van/ties assumes thai there Is a clear
demarcation between " p o p u l a r " and
"non-popular" girls. This assumption creates
a problem In evaluating Ihe theme. Surely
there must be women who have found a
Jiappy medium between popularity and in-
telligence! In Vanities If such women exist,
they are not mentioned.
Upon entering the theater, I was astonish
ed to see the three actresses putting on
make-up and getting dressed right on the
stage. They continued that throughout the
Intermissions. I suppose the point was to
force the audience to see what a narcissistic
and time consuming process making-up can

Moral Majority:
To the Editor:
Recently, N.Y. Senator Alphonse
D'Amato announced that he is cosponsoring a bill to effect a constitutional
amendment that might deem certain forms
of birth control (such as the Pill and the
IUD) illegal. Feminists and ovcr-scxed college students might think he is going too Tar
with such a proposal. Yet in actuality,
D'Amato is not going far enough.
If we truly believe in an individual's right
to life as provided for in the constitution,
we must also illegalize menstruation. Every
month, women all over America between
menses and menopause arc releasing an egg
that is a potential life form, a potential
child. Left unfertilized, the egg leaves the
body of the woman and dies.
These senseless murders must stop. On
any given day, millions of killings are taking place all over the counlry that professes
lo preserve human rights. Something must
be done.
Women who have already passed Ihc age
of menopause must be spared from any
retroactive legislation for the sake of expediency. II would be impossible lo prove exactly where and when the murders had
laken place. It would also be very difficult
lo conic up with witnesses.
However, something can and must be
done about those women who are selfishly
menstruating each month. Punishing them
by death or imprisonment is Inefficient; our
newly-slashed federal budget cannot handle
ihc expense of executions or long-term imprisonment of such a greal part of the
population. The answer is clear: women
must be required lo be perpetually pregnant
until menopause. A two-month interim between pregnancies might be allowed lo permit the woman's body to rest before conceiving future Great Americans. With
women forced to slay al home rearing
children, men could again solely control Ihc
economy. "Pregnancy leaves" would be
non-exisienl because women would never
be able to leave home for work. Our counlry could again achieve greatness, not to
mention military and nuclear superiority.
Of course, since the federal sterilization
of unknowing Native American women has
already proved effective, they may remain
exempt from this proposed policy.

The Pine Hills Sludcnl Community

thai Ihe main purpose of the alliance is lo

Bus Stop Blues
Every Saturday night it's the same scenario. A massive group of drunken
students gather on the corner of Quail and Western to try to get back uptown.
A large crowd forms, extending well into the intersection, as students impatiently wait for the last two buses of the night.
Those who couldn't squeeze on the late 2 a.m. bus are left waiting for the 3
a.m. bus, which is also many minutes overdue. The crowd continues to grow
to an overwhelming size.
Little did they realize that going downtown for a few drinks would result in
a brutal battle just to get back home. They must become experts in the fine art
or jockeying for a strategic position to get on the bus. They must become
masters at shoving, climbing and anything else necessary to get a space on that
Parking Gripe
To Ihc Editor:
1 was one of Ihose people who had their
cars paper mached with tickets while I was
parked in trout of Dutch Quad one
weekend. Until recently I never had trouble
with Ihis. This university has Ihe absurd
policy of making il illegal to park around
ihc quads 24 hours a day, seven days a
week. 1 can understand the regulations during weekdays bin on weekends Ihcrc is plenty of parking space around the quads. Il is a
waste to have to park in the other lots when
there is room in from of ihe quads on (lie
weekends. And il seems like a wasle lo pay
security lo go around ticketing cars al .1:30
in die morning when Ihey could be pui lo
better use preventing rape or robbery.
Peter lluinillon
Tension builds. And as the bus pulls in, it is already three-quarters full
because some clever students were wise enough to walk down a couple blocks
to Robin Street.
Those on Quail compete viciously for the few remaining spols on the bus. It
is every person for him/herself as people trample mercilessly over each other.
Tempers flare.
It is a dangerous and highly explosive situation. Just last Saturday night a
student was arrested for refusing to get off an already crowded bus.
We must revise ihc late-night weekend schedule. Buses must run more often,
perhaps every half hour. They must also run on time. Wc must nol wail until
someone is badly injured before we act on this problem.
We realize additional buses are cosily, but as always, safety should he the
number one priority. Students should not have to fight to gel on ihc buses; nor
should Ihey have to worry whether Ihey can gol home.

On the other hand, according to
Chase, the size of his team's roster,
consisting of only nine players, was
definitely a deterring factor. "We
haven't got any depth. We did not
have many guys. Albany was running them in and out," Chase said.
"You do what you can with what
you've got."
But as far as Skeel was concerned, the .real key was Albany's
defense. "We played good defense
and that was the key. When you
play defense like that, it becomes
your offense," said the Danes'
Best exemplifying Albany's
defense on Saturday was the play of
guard Carl Askew, who took on the
assignment of guarding Pctrowski
in the second half. "He's a good
shorter," Askew said of Pctrowski
(a former varsity player), "He had
lo slay in his place. We played a
-'•nod defensive game."

on Albany's pressure defense. "We
pressed a lot throughout- the
game," said Skeel.
Going into halftime Albany lead
by the slim difference of one
basket, 32-30. That difference was
quickly made up as Tom Pelrowski
(10 points) opened the second half
scoring with only 21 seconds gone
by. But Albany, over the next nine
minutes, outscored Oneonta 26-13
and the Red Dragons never

of a 20-point loss.
Albany's comfortable lends

novcrs. "It seemed that most of my
points came on fast breaks," said
Thomas. "The coach (Albany J.V.
head coach Rick Skeel) had hie play
on the wing and we made a lot of
fast breaks."
The 13 turnovers committed by
the Red Dragons is indicative of
Oneonta's inexperience, according
to Oneonta J.V. head coach Hal
Chase. "1 have two or three guys
who haven't played high school
ball," Chase added.
Except for the final 6:30 of the
first half, the game was never really
close. The Danes jumped out early
to a 12-2 lead, easily penetrating
Oneonta's 2-2-1 zone defense. Bill
in (he final minutes of the half, the
Danes saw that lead diminished as

The Albany State men's swimming and diving team concluded their
dual meet season on Friday, falling
to RPI despite superb performances
by Joe Shore, Bill Dcrkasch and
Kevin Ahem.
Albany bowed to RPI 64-46 lo
drop their season record to 6-7.
"I'm not really disappointed
finishing under .500 because we
have shown marked Improvement," commented Dane swimming coach Ron White.
Shore's performance was the
highlight of the meet. He was a
double winner as he recorded a personal best in the 400-yard Individual Medley, clocking In at
4:38.22. lie also placed his name in
the Albany State record books with
a pool record in the 100-yard Brcasl
Stroke. His time was 1:03.22.
Dcrkasch equalled Shore's winning total as he took both the onemeter and three-meter diving events
with 193.75 and 220.20 points,
Ahem also etched his name in the
Albany books with a 1:49.63 clocking in Ihe 200-yard Freestyle. That
was good for a pool record as well
as a first place finish. He also grab-

but you'll find yourself better

In Saturday's meet some of
Albany's times were a little slower
than usual because of the weaker
competition. "When you're beating
a team by those kinds of scores, it's
hard to put in a good perform a n c e , " explained Albany

6:05.77. Fitzpatrlck also combined
with Lisa Sotnek, Robin Brown,
and Judy King in the 200-yard
Freestyle Relay for a school record
of 1:51.47 timing.
Other outstanding performances
were turned in by Beth Larson in
the 100-yard Butterfly (1:12.41),
Sotnek in the 50-yard Freestyle
(0:27.96) and Carol Lim In the
50-yard Butterfly (0:31.13).
In the diving competition, Joan
Meiklcham continued to excel. In
the one-meter diving required
event, she attempted an inward.dive
in the pike position and received
scores of seven, eight, and nine. A
score of nine is very hard to cor
by in collegiate diving.
"It's almost unheard of until you
get to Olympic competition — it's
very rare," noted Bingham.
The State meet is next up for the
Dane swimmers and eleven people
have qualified. Bingham lists seven
teams that should, In all likelihood,
place ahead of Albany In the
26-leam field, but she is confident
they will improve on last year's 19th
place finish.
"Any other team at the Slates we
have a crack at," she said. "If we
really get cooking, we could place
as high as eighth place. Right now,
Barbara Stachowiak came in second in Ihe 50-yard Breast Stroke

Sotnek both turned in personal best
times in the 100-yard Freestyle with
Brown in first at 1:01.78 and
Sotnek in third at 1:02.85. Brown
also swam in Ihe 100-yard Individual Medley for the first time
and barely missed qualifying for Ihe
States at 1:10.34.
"The 800-yard Relay was a very
close event. We showed some good
individual performances, but we
were just touched out by RPI,"
evaluated While.
The Danes qualified 13 athletes
for the SUNYAC Championships
to be held March 5-7. White is anticipating a fourth or firth place
finish, but thinks the squad has a
legitimate shot at third place.

record, defeating Binghamton and

we're aiming at the top twelve."
Being among the top six competitors in each event is the goal
that the swimmers will be striving
for. Bingham feels that Albany's
best chances for that mark will be
from Meiklcham in the diving, King
In the 50-yard Backstroke, and
Lauriann Baines in the 50-yard and

noted that Brown had qualified in
seven events — the maximum

A n examination o f SUN Y history
shows that student groups have
never been able lo stop a proposed
SUNY tuition hike.
Further, of the five tuition hikes
proposed since 1963, (he year
S U N Y A became a university
center, three were at the request of
Governor Hugh L. Carey.
Carey has proposed either a spending cut or a tuition hike or both
during five o f his seven years in office. The Iwo years he did nol make
such proposals were 1975, his firsl
year in office, and 1978, when he
was up for re-election.
Carey's record o f support for
higher education is in stark contrasl
to llial of Governor Nelson A .
Rockefeller was elected governor
in 1958. In 1963, SUNY tuition was
$400 per year. That figure remained
unchanged until 1971.
The '60's was a period of tremendous growth for SUNY. Increases
in sales taxes and banking taxes in
New York Stale generated enormous revenue, enabling Rockefeller
to almost single-handedly create the
entire 64-campus system.
During Rockefeller's 15 years as
governor, the state budget increased
from $2 billion lo more than $8
billion. Much o f that money wcnl
lo higher education.
The number or college students
enrolled in New York State increased during thai period from 38,000
to 246,000.
I n 1 9 7 1 , the m a j o r i t y
Rockercltcr's budget was earmarked I'or education. SUNY's appropriation was increased more
than $40 million. Despite this, additional money was needed to mainlain the SUNY construction fund.
O n January 29, 1971, the SUNY
Board o f Trustees voled 10 raise luilion from $400 lo $550, with a
similar hike planned for 1973.
The tuition increase ihat year
went virtually unnoticed. No angry
letters or editorials graced the pages
of the ASP. No massive lobbying
efforts were organized. Students, il
seemed, were too busy protesting
the war in Vietnam.
The first real outcry against rising
tuition occurcd in 1972, when Ihc
SUNY Board of Trustees approved
a tuition hike for the second year in
a row.
Ernest L. Boycr, then chancellor
of the SUNY system, said the hike
was needed to cover a $63 million
