The location o f the college is

According to Election Commissioner Mickey I'm pi man, several

The problem arose, SA President

The final decision came Wednesday afternoon ut a rubber-stamping
session of the SUNY Hoard of
Trustees where the board voted as
anticipated, and approved the hike.
The one dissenting voice In Ihe
board's 14-1 vote was thai of Student Association o f State University
(SASU) President Jim Stern,
Stern feels the board "gave up
ihe bailie loo early." He predicted
that many SUNY students would be
pushed out of college because they
could not afford the cost increases
along with expected cuts in student
giants and loans.
The tuition hike came as a surprise lo no one. As early as two
months ago Chancellor Clifton R.
Wharton Jr. came before the Joint
Legislative fiscal committees in
favor of the hike and said that even
If Ihe legislature restored SUNY
funds he could not guarantee that
the money would go lo offsetting
Ihe tuition hike.
The move to raise tuition had
received preliminary approval in
February and SUNY
already added the $20 million in expected new revenue to their 1981-82
budget proposals.
Although the legislature has yet
to pass the state budget, with the
tuition hike for SUNY in It, it
would be very unlikely that this
time any change will occur.
SASU Vice President Janice Fine
said they sec the situation as finalized. "Students will definitely be paying $150 more next semester," said
The tuition hike received a barrage of criticism f r o m both
legislators and students who lambasted Ihc board for not asking for
state funds to restore Ihe budget

Reagan to Make Speech
WASHINGTON, D.C.(AP) President Reagan will address a joint session of Congress Tuesday night on his
economic program. The president, who has not been
seen in public since he was shot in an assassination attempt March 30, will go before the House and Senate at
9 p.m. EST, deputy White House press secretary Larry
Speakes said yesterday. His address will come one day
after Congress returns from a two-week Easter recess.
Speakes said Reagan's economic recovery program was
"a subject the president believes is of the utmost importance to the nation and one on which he believes he
should communicate in person with members of the
House and Senate at this time. He feels it Is particularly important that he-outline his views as his program moves forward in the legislative process," Speakes
said at a White House briefing for reporters. "He is
eagerly looking forward to the opportunity to be on
Capitol Hill." The president's last major speech was
also in the Capitol. He addressed a joint session Feb. 18,
giving his views on the state of the nation's economy and
his recommendations for improving it. Since he was
shot, he has been visited by political leaders and several
others, including two reporters, but he has avoided large
crowds and has not left the White House since he returned there April 11 from his hospital stay. Speakes said the
president consulted this morning with Senate
Republican Leader Howard H. Baker Jr. of Tennessee,
who visited him at the White House and also talked
about the speech on Wednesday, in a telephone conversation with House Speaker Thomas P. O'Neill Jr. of
Lead Found in Atlanta
ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) Police say Ihcy expect lo
evaluate quickly information from a civil rights group
which says it has found a "psychopath" responsible for
some of the 25 slayings of young blacks since June 1979.
"I don't consider the nature of the information
something that will take a long time" to evaluate, said
Public Safely Commissioner Lee Brown. He did noi say
exactly how long it might take. He also said late Wednesday that police did noi have enough evidence lo arrest
anyone. The FBI said the information was "important.
We will be checking il out. Wc are taking a look at what
we have," said John Glover, special agcnl in charge of
the Atlanta FBI office. Roy Innis, staff director of the
Congress of Racial Equality announced Wednesday his
investigators had found a "psychopath," plus a
"witness" who they believe could link that person to at
leasl six of the killings. He did not identify Ihc witness of
detail the evidence. However, a newspaper editor who
spent five hours Monday interviewing Ihc "witness"
said he fell the person's story was "plausible." "I'm
emphasizing that I'm using the word plausible, noi
believable or anything else, but plausible," said John
Schaffner, managing edilor of The Atlanta Constitu-'
lion. "1 wouldn't literally call litis person u witness, hut
it is a person that possibly might be able lo shed some
light" on the investigation, Schaffner said. He would
not reveal the person's name, Ihe circumstances of Ihc
conversation nor the link between the "witness" and
CORE's so-called "psychopath."
Buffalo Suspect Studied
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Law enforcement officers remained tight-lipped yesterday about reports that a while
soldier from Buffalo, now at Fort Bcnning, Ga., is a
prime suspect in a series of slayings of black males in Ihe
Buffalo area last fall. Although the soldier's name has
not been officially made public, records at Fort Benning
showed he joined the Army last Nov. 13 after four
blacks had been shot to death here and two black cab
drivers had been bludgeoned or stabbed to death. The
records, according to officials, also showed that he was
on furlough from Dec. 19 to Jan. 4 — a span in which
two other black men were stabbed to death in Western
New York and attacks were made on others. During the
latter spree of killings, one man was stabbed to death in
Buffalo Dec. 29, another was knifed to death in
Rochester Dec. 30, and still another black man was stabbed in Buffalo Dcc.31 but survived. Police Commissioner James B. Cunningham said the investigation of
the soldier is "the hottest lead we've had yet." Meantime, WKBW-TV, Buffalo, said a search Wednesday of
the Buffalo home of the soldier's mother produced a
blood-stained jacket and a knife. Two Investigators of
the task force that has been Investigating the slayings
told a reporter in Georgia Wednesday that they arrived
at the base Tuesday and planned to stay for another day
or two.
BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP) Rioters stoned police
and troops and hijacked cars in Catholic West Belfast
Thursday after the British turned down Bobby Sands'
request to see former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey
Clark and the Rev. Daniel Berrigan. Police reported'no
casualties and said the violence in West Belfast was on a
smaller scale than previous rioting over the hunger strike
by Sands, a jailed Irish Republican Army guerrilla
demanding political prisoner status and approaching
death after 54 days of fasting. The violence in Northern
Ireland had gone on for eight nights with police and
troops battling roving bands of youths. It was the latest
outbreak in the long struggle between majority Protestants and minority Roman Catholics in this British
province. The IRA is fighting lo end British rule and
unite Northern Ireland with the predominantly Catholic
Irish Republic. Sands' eyesight and hearing were both
reported to be quickly failing. The government's decision lo refuse the meeting with Clark and Barrlgan came
only days after Sands was allowed lo sec three legislators
from the Irish Republic. Although sympathetic to
Sands' cause, ihcy said they were willing to try to talk
him inlo halting his fast. They failed.
Robbers Take $3.3 Million
TUSCON, Arizona (AP) Four masked gunmen who
knew their victims by nicknames overpowered a janitor
and bank manager and drove off with $3.3 million, apparently the largest cash haul from a bank heist in the
nation's history. "These guys did their homework.
These guys are pros." said police spokesman Mike
Walsh after Ihc Wednesday morning robbery of a First
National Bank of Arizona branch by the gunmen — iwo
in Halloween masks and two with stocking hoods.
Chuck Hcmann, First National Spokesman in Phoenix,
said today that an audit revealed that $3.3 million was
taken by the robbers. Bank officials at first had declined
comment on the amount taken, although sources close
to the investigation had estimated $2.5 million was involved.
Truces Set in Mideast
UKIRUT, Lebanon (AP) Another cease-fire took hold

Christian leader warned they would all collapse unless
Syria was brought to Ihe bargaining tabic lo end Ihe
fighting that has left at least 375 dead and 1,300 wounded since April 1. Israeli jets, meanwhile, skirled Palestinian anti-aircraft fire and flew reconnaissance missions
over Beirut and southern Lebanon. Israeli frogmen blew

north of the border. The Syrians and Christians in
Lebanon held their fire after three days of bitter fighting

Elias Sarkis, took hold in Beirut at daybreak and in
Zahle at midday. Government officials said cease-fires
also were being attempted to halt a separate war in West
Beirut betwen pro-Iraqi and pro-Iranian Moslem
militias and another in southern Lebanon pitting
Palestinian guerrillas against Israel and Israeli-backed
Christian militiamen. Syrian troops, who police the armistacc that ended the 1975-76 civil war between

Council to Complete Budget
by Sylvia Saunders
Central Council is expected to
complete debating and approving
the 1981-82 SA budget next week,
according to Budget Committee
Chair John Suydam.
It is the first time in several years
that it came up balanced, Suydam
said. "There aren't any major problems with it. Most of the groups
arc satisfied."
He said the biggest complaint
concerned the proposed elimination
of (he OCA coordinalor and a
decrease in OCA's funding (sec accompanying story).
"Other lhan that, we haven't had
many complaints," Suydam said.
Other changes included proposed
additional funding for certain
"growing" groups. For example,
due to increased membership and
services, Pre-Health Professionals
Club is budgeted lo receive $770
rather than $431.
The SUNYA Gay and Lesbian
Alliance may also receive additional
funding (from $700 to $1,140), as a
result of a doubling of last year's

Brady's Condition Stable
WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) White House press
secretary James S. Brady was in satisfactory condition
Thursday following lengthy, late-night surgery lo repair
a membrane leak which triggered a potentially
dangerous buildup of air pressure upon his bullctpicrccd brain. Brady, who was shot in the head during
the attack on President Reagan three weeks ago, was on
Ihc operating table for more than five hours Wednesday
night and Thursday morning. Richard Ellis, a
spokesman at George Washington Universtiy Hospital,
said Brady's vital signs were normal. "He has slcpl intermittently through the night as the usual effects of
anesthesia wear off, but he is readily awakened and
responds normally to questions," he said. Brady's deputy, Larry Speakes, told reporters Thursday that the
40-ycar-old press secretary had been returned to his own
hospital room from the recovery room. Dr. Dennis
O'Lcary, a top hospital official, said Brady had been
awake and "wiggling his toes" just after the surgery.
Hinckley Given Tests
WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) John Hinckley Jr. accused
of attempting to assassinate President Reagan, has
undergone four hours of medical testing at a university
hospital near the prison where he is being held, a Justice
Department spokesman said Wednesday. Department
spokesman John Russell said that Hinckley was moved
Wednesday evening from the federal collection institution al Butner, N.C., to the Duke University hospital in
nearby Durham. The tests, which included a brain scan,
were requested by lawyers defending Hinckley against a
charge of attempting to assassinate Reagan on March
30, Russell said. He said he did not know the results of
the tests, and Hinckley's attorneys were not available
for comment. Russell said the testing took from 6:30
p.m. to 10:30 p.m. and was done at the university
because the Butner Institution docs not have equipment
for a brain scan, a lest which can be used to detect a
tumor and other disorders. After the tests, Hinckley was
returned to Butner, where he is being held for up to 90
days of psychiatric testing.

Tower East Cinema (TEC) is also
proposed to be incorporated in the

said. SA has proposed a $1,500

In addition, Nadir, a feature
magazine similar lo Tangent, is proposed to be funded. Previously, the
magazine received money from
Central Council's emergency funding.

Other differences include a

Small special interest groups who

"Getaway Buses" Will be
Chartered by SA Soon
by Bruce J. Lichcr
SUNYA's Student Association (SA) will charter "Getaway Buses"
lo Ihc Porl Authority and Roosevelt Field beginning April 24 lo provide sludenls with an alternative to regular Greyhound and Trailway
service, according to Central Council Chair Peter Weinsioek.
Tile SA-chartcrcd buses will dcparl from the uptown circle ul 2:30
p.m. on Friday and leave for Albany al 3:30 p.m. on Sunday.
According lo Weinsioek, a similar program has been operating with
"incredible success" al SUNY Dinghnmion all year, and he expects ihc
program lo work as well al SUNYA.
SA will charier Ihe buses from Greyhound to Roosevelt Field al a
cost of $800, lo the Porl Authority al a cost of $600, and will charge
sludenls a round-trip piice of $20 and $17.50, respectively. One student on each bus will receive a free ticket in exchange for collecting
tickets and acting as a "bus captain," according lo Weinsioek.
If SA consistently fills up the buses, thereby building up an excess
cash reserve, ticket prices could conceivably be lowered, he said.
Weinsioek described the program as having "such potential" and
foresees "eventual expansion" of Ihc service lo Boston and other
nearby cities.
The "Getaway Buses" will not run on vacation weekends lo prevail
competition with the fraternity buses that normally operate during
these weekends. The buses will also noi run during the upcoming

developed a program to make peer

"It's taken time," Schwartz said.
"We've moved on suggestions in
the 1979 report. There is sympathy
for advisement among the people

(CPS) On May 3, campus sentiment
against U.S. involvement In El
Salvador will go through what
amounts to a rite of passage for
political movements: it will stage its
own march on Washington, D.C.
The march caps what organizers
call "the busiest protest season
since Three Mile Island," and
marks what these same organizers
— very aware of comparisons to the
first college stirrings against U.S.
involvements in Vietnam in 1964 —
call a "transition period" from
"scattered, community-based protest" to a more "political" phase.
Campus activities ill the last six
months against U.S. El Salvador
policies have indeed been boih
spontaneous and widespread,
unlike the more carefully-arranged
recent campus rallies against aparIheid in South Africa, nuclear
power, and the draft. A March protest at the University of CaliforniaRiverside "peaked" at 70 people,
while a march at the University of
Massachuselis-Amhersi surprised
organizers a few days later when it
drew 1,200 students and faculty.

smacks of communism."
Students at George Mason
University in Virginia were not so
lucky. Their application for a
university charter was denied on the
grounds that "they lacked clear
plans." A university spokesman
denied the action was "politically
motivated," but would-be CISPES
officers remain unconvinced.
Granting university recognition
hardly guarantees a group support
of the community, however. Marchers at the UMass-Amherst protest
drew heckles from dorm windows.
Onlookers reportedly insulted marchers, and students favoring U.S.
activities in El Salvador drowned
out the chants of the marchers by
playing "Ballad of the Green
Bercls" on a sound system.
The polarisation of students and
faculty over the El Salvador issue
reminds mosl people almost
automatically of the Vietnam antiwar movement, and indeed,
SUNY's Petras finds "remarkable"
"The teach-ins and scattered protests we see now aboul El Salvador
roughly compare lo the stage of the
Vietnam movement in laic 1964 or
1965," Petras asserts. "It's getting
to the point where people with
diverse interests arc getting involved, nol jusl people who have a
history of being politically active."
Active participants no longer include only those people who were
active in the Vietnam movement
and arc interested in finding a
"cause" once more, nor is il limited
to people who feel they "missed the
Vietnam movement" and want to
get in on these activities, agrees
CISPES' Tarver.
"The breadth and nature of the
movement against U.S. involvement in El Salvador is analgous lo
Vietnam," she says, "But this is
growing much faster lhan the sixties."
Petras is confident that the movemcnl will continue its rapid growth
if the U.S. government refuses to
alter its policies in El Salvador. He
predicts a direct parallel between
the growth of U.S. involvement in
Central America and the growth of
activism al home.
Asked how quickly the El
Salvador movement will get to a
stage comparable to the Vietnam
movement in 1968 or 1969, he
estimates " a year or two at this
rale, provided U.S. policies do not
"We're in a very important transition stale righl now," Petras says.

Whether the El Salvador movement will successfully make the
transition from " p r o t e s t to
politics" will be most clearly seen at
the May 3 rally in Washington.
Organized by the People's AntiWar Mobilization committee
(PAM) based in Washinton, the rally might attract as many as 100,000
people from all over the country,
according to Dick Cushing of
PAM. He says PAM has developed
a network of organizations in at

'NASA to Use SUNYA Experiment
by Mark Fischettl
I After the scrub-downs, the tile
replacements, the repairing of solidfuel rocket boosters, and a host of
other adjustments, NASA's space
shuttle Columbia will be ready for
its second Orbital Test Flight, to
take place this fall. Along with
astronauts Richard H. Truly and
Joe Henry Englc, numerous experimental packages will be carried
Into orbit. Among them will be the
first university experiment to be
flown on the Columbia, which
belongs to SUNYA's Bernard Vonncgut, Senior Scientist of the Atmospheric Science Research Center.
"Some years ago NASA announced they would received proposals for experiments to be done
on the Columbia space flights,"
Vonnegut said. "We submitted a
proposal in Pall 1976, and it was accepted in Summer 1977."
Vonnegut and his colleagues, Otto Vaughah of NASA's Marshall
Space Flight Center and Marx
Brook of the New Mexico Institute
of Mining and Technology, arc interested in photographing and making sound recordings of lightning
discharges from above the clouds,
affording a view unequalled from
the ground or any aircraft.
"We're particularly Interested in
very severe lightning produced in
hurricanes, tornadoes, and volcanic
activity," Vonnegut said. "We're
also interested in how the storms
serve as a high voltage generator
and just what the role of the clctricity in the storm is."
Accounts from Skyiab astronauts
describe an exhilarating overall view
of lightning which cannot be appreciated at lower altitudes. Also,
the area of the Earth's surface visible from the space shuttle will be
large enough so that lightning
storms are likely to be visible on
every orbit.
The hardware of the NighttimeDaytime Optical Survey of Lightning and Convective Phenomena
(NOSL) experiment includes a 16
millimeter Maurer movie camera,
which will furnish movie pictures of
the storm in progress, and a
photocell sensor system, which
together with the camera forms a
handheld apparatus approximately
twice the size of an ordinary Super 8
movie camera.
The photocell system has a light
sensitive receiving area which points
in the same direction as the movie

lens. When there is a change in the
frequency of the incoming light, as
when lightning suddenly flashes,
the change will be recorded by the
photocell. An audio pickup will, in
turn, transform the changes in light
frequency into an audio signal that
will be recorded on magnetic tape.
"Lightning sounds like static on
the radio," Vonnegut explained.
Analysis of the "static" on an
oscilloscope results in an electronic
signature characteristic to the type
of lightning which produced it.
When filming nighttime lightning, a
diffraction grating will be placed in
the camera, yielding a spectrograph, a light signature also
characteristic of the lightning. Spectrograph results can be used to
determine the temperatures,
pressures, electron density, and
ionization in the cloud mass that
produced the lightning.
"For example," Vonnegut said,
"some lightning goes up above the
clouds. II has never been
photographed. We'd very much like
lo photograph It and compare its
spectra with thai of lightning which
comes down to earth."
Vonnegut hopes increased

control of severe storms.
"My biggest motivation Is
curiosity," Vonncgul said, adding,
"We must supply the public with
knowledge of their universe."
On the practical side, Vonnegut
points out that most of the world's

"Sometimes we gel loo much.

Profits Before People:
Formula for Malnutrition
Scott M. Sommer
Malnutrition, brain damage, death. Ten
million third-world babies a year are destined to meet this fate as a result of the proliferation of "Bottle Baby Disease"
throughout Latin America, Africa and
Three American companies; AbbotRoss, American Home Products and
Bristol Myers; along with the Nestle Company, a totally Swiss-owned multinational
food processing conglomerate, have engaged in marketing practices of formula which
advance "Bottle Baby Disease."
For over a decade these companies —
primarily Nestle, which has over a 50 percent share of the infant formula market —
have made it company policy to convince
third-world mothers that bottle feeding
their babies will lead them towards
healthier, happier lives.
For the overwhelming majority of
mothers in the third-world, breastfeeding is
the most economical, convenient and nutritional method of nourishing their new born
babies. Doctors and nutrition experts
throughout the world have found mother's
milk to be superior to infant formula as a
source of nourishment. Research has also
shown that an undernourished mother can
produce healthy mother's milk, without
causing further damage to the mother's
One method which Nestle has adopted, is
sending women in nurses' uniforms into
hospitals lo convince new mothers of the
"virtues" of bottle feeding. These women
are company-paid employees, who use Ihe
authority that a uniform represents to
manipulate the minds of these third-world
women. From day one of a newborn's life,
these "milk-nurses" give the mothers free
samples of formula, lactogen, prepare Ihe
formula properly and "hook" mother and
child on the bottle. If a woman doesn't
breast-feed from the start, she can slop lactating inside of a week and have her supply
of milk dry up.
Another practice engaged by Nestle : o
give hospitals, doctors and other rvallh
professionals "gifts," both monetary and
material, in exchange for support of their
product. Columnist Jack Anderson has
charged that Nestle has been "laundering"
money to the government of Guatemala
which in turn has assassinated advocates of
breast feeding.
Also Nestle has embarked on a high
powered media campaign in order to sell its
product. This campaign includes billboards
and product labels with happy smiling
babies, cheery songs and slogans, "Give
Your Baby Love and Lactogen," and conveying the underlying message that their
babies will be like the upper-class, healthy
white babies which are bottle fed.
The major problems which occur for the
mothers include having to spend over 50
percent of their income to buy the formula.
This in turn results in women having to over
dilute the formula and not being able to afford the equipment and fuel to sterilize the
bottles and nipples. Also a large amount of
the women live in rural villages which have
impure water supplies, thus the bottle
becomes the carrier of disease.
Finally, there is a general lack of
understanding among the women concerning proper use of Ihe formula. There have
been attempts made at putting picture instructions on the label, however as shown in
the CBS documentary "Into the Mouths of
Babes", (1978), Nestle has ordered many
stores lo remove the label from the tins in
order to avoid any resale on Ihe black
market; ergo many formula tins have no instructions on them at all.
In 1977, the Infant Formula Action
Coalition, (1NFACT), launched a boycott
of Nestle products as a direct action against
the company's policy concernng the
marketing of infant formula. INFACT's
main demands are that there be a halt lo
"all promotion of infant formula in areas
where their misuse is predictable and
dangerous," and that all infant formula
producers adhere to the World Health
Organization (WHO) code on marketing
practices, which will be voted on next
month. The American companies have
declared a "war on babies" by pledging lo
ignore any code which is adopted by WHO.
Nestle has decided to resort to a high
level media/propaganda campaign in order
lo combat the growing international
boycott of its products. Last year, they contributed $25,000 to the Ethics and Public
Policy Center in Washington to research
ihe infant formula controversy and have

event a successful one, WE NEED YOUR
It would be truly tragic to see
"Celebration ' 8 1 " be our last spring out-,
door concert. However, with the problems
created due to the event's growth beyond its
original scope (SUNYA), we have had to
make several policy changes. These policy
changes cannot be effectively implemented
without the help of all SUNYA students.
The most notable change will be the
enclosure of the entire concert area, from
Quad to Quad and from Campus Center to
the backstage area. This fence will be
patrolled by several additional security personnel. Again we need (he help of you to
make sure people don't abuse our event by
sneaking in without a ticket. The costs of
this event are tremendious and the mandatory charge will help offset our additional
expenses. Futhcrmore, due to this closing
off of the event, more than ever is there a
need to encourage the early purchase of
your Celebration '81 ticket. Not only is
there the economic incentive of buying the
first ticket on the tax card at $4.00 and the
second at $6.00 instead of one on the day of
the show for $10.00 if available but several
other potential problems are impending.
For example, if everyone waits to purchase
their ticket for the last minute, we will have
a very congested entrance chute near Dutch
Quad on May 2; one that will delay the
the article published in Fortune magazine,
(June 18, 1981). Besides being inaccurate,
[he article had a very pro-industry slant; a
well written expose of this affair is in the
January 28, 1981 issue of the Village Voice.
It clear that Nestle and the other companies have put profits before the lives of
the newborn. This struggle for corporate
democracy and responsibility is growing
rapidly here at SUNYA and in the Capital
District. I f you have any questions or would
like to join the boycott, please contact
Capital District INFACT, 39 Philip Street,
Albany, 12207, 463-4411. Remember,
"profits before people is a formula for
show and possibly prevent the bands from
playing as long as they were scheduled. In
addition, if everyone waits till May 2, wc
won't be able to let more than tlje number
of $10.00 tickets we printed up enter (that is
a very few anyway). Also if several people
decide to jump the fence or whatever wc
will not only be unable to pay for the event
but we will witness a major disaster and sec
the last SUNYA Spring Concert. This is
something I am sure of. So please, I musi
reiterate help us with this crucial matter.
So if you haven't purchased your ticket
yet, please do so soon cither at the Campus
Center Lobby or at the dinner lines at the
following Quads and times: Colonial ami
State on Tin-.day, Indian and Dutch on
Wednesday and Alumni on Thursday,
Please remember to bring your tax cards.
Your cooperation will also be appreciated on behalf of the SUNYA Alumni
who will be calling you to purchase a ticket
for them. Please help them and us with ihis
matter. I would also like to say thai
SUNYA graduate students will be allowed
to purchase a ticket with their ID Card at
the price of $6.00.
Another problem we have had in the past
and have had to eliminate is the tremendous
problem with broken glass and garbage. In
an attempt to prevent this, there will be no
bottles, cans, coolers etc. allowed within
the event. Also please be mindful of keeping the grounds clean during the event.
This year in addition to the Rat being
closed, I would like to strongly discourage
the use of the Campus Center facilities on
May 2. Last year extensive damage was
caused, damage we cannot afford to
witness again. For your convenience we will
supply many "elegant" porto-toilels.
Finally, 1 would like to once again realize
my redundancy and request your aid and
assistance in making Celebration '81 a successful event. We must all share in making
its success or we will all share in causing the
end of one of SUNYA's biggest traditions.

Just lake two large breaths of fresh air. exhale when you discover the true meaning of
life and call me In the morning (if you can
find me). Then deposit $2 million In any
bank account you choose and just sit back
and watch the fast-acting results.
I suppose you're wondering why I'm
writing this. If you know what's good for you
don't ask. All seriousness aside, is there any
use in taking abuse from a friend who Is perfunctorily kind? I mean, Isn't that against Ihe
grain, unconstitutional, and against all good
sense? I've taken II, you'll say (wrong, air

just not as bright as yesterday. She's here,
though, still with me. even now as I write
this, but her presence isn't as strong as it used lo be.
I won'l belabor this point too much longer,
bul I'm compelled to retain Ihe very profound effect this one person has had upon
me. All the lea In China won't bring her back
into my life, and to be perfectly honest I'm
not even crazy about tea. I'm just applying a
basic logic aboul life: You look back when
you plan ahead. You read history lo map

Iwo lorward. See, she's a wonderful thought
lo skip over during Ihe empty spaces of long
nights of other excesses. Each woman I have
been with since Is in some way a prisoner of
her in my mind.

met a woman on the bus last nlghl that I've

Utopia Hits A New Stage
- Sound A Vision '
iPoge 8a<-
- ^ - n spite of the fact that It was Easter
Sunday, J . B . Scott's was packed,
t J '
with eight hundred people flocking
to see Todd Rundgren's Utopia live. It's been
a while since they've played such a small
venue as J.B. Scott's in this area, and they
seemed to get a charge from being so close
to their audience, who were very enihnslastlc.
Laurel Solomon
They opened with a cut entitled "One
W o r l d , " from their forthcoming album Swinging to the Right, which Is due for June
release. The rest of the show accented their
newer albums, although they did dig up a
few classic numbers from earlier ones.
"The Road to Utopia" followed, as well as
"Back on the Street" and "Caravan." Next
was "Time Heals," as Todd said, from "one
of the band member's solo albums." This, of
course, came from Todd's own newly-
released solo album, ' Healing,
although he plays all the Instruments on the
studio disc, came across very well within the
context of Utopia.
John Willie Wilcox took over on lead
vocals for a fine rendition of "Crazy Lady
Blue," which was followed by another tune
from that soon-to-be-released album called
"The U p . " Sandwiched between that and
another new song called "The Last Dollar on
Earth" (heavy social comment In the Rundgren vein with sensitive vocals by Roger
Powell) was the classic "Love of the Common Man," which encouraged much cheering from the crowd.
"The Wheel" was another tune which mel
with extraordinary enthusiasm. It exhibits
Utopia at their best, the whole spirll behind
the band shining through. Even Kaslm
Sultan, who seemed lo be prelty tired
throughout the show livened up on this one.
Todd had the whole audience clapping
along with h i m , and Included some Incredi-
ble guitar solos.
More new music followed; cuts from
Aduentures In Utopia, Deface the Music,
and S w i n g to the'
"Lyslstrada" contained a make love not war
message, Ironic In that the band was clad In
army camouflage fatigues and T-shirts.
Todd's hair, cut Just below his ears, further
limited the hippie image which has
characterized him over the years.
They closed the set with "Love in Action"
and "Last of the New Wave Riders," leaving
the crowd begging for more. They came
back out to do "Couldn't I Just Tell Y o u "
from Todd's Something/Anything album,
and "Love Is the Answer," which really
epitomized what Todd and his image to the
public Is all about.
What probably makes Todd Rundgren so
popular (besides his musical wizardry) Is his
accessibility. He doesn't put on any airs as so
-April 24, mil
many rock performers do; he knows thai the
people are responsible for his success, and
he appreciates the fact that they go to so
much trouble to see his concerts. He shakes
hands and talks to his fans, and a feeling of
warmth develops which I have never seen
before at any other show. Perhaps it is this
special quality, a knowledge that he Is "real
people" which makes people go to see him
again and again. A combination of excellent
musicianship (besides Todd's exceedingly
long and Illustrious list of credentials, and
reputation as an innovator In many aspects
of the media; Kaslm Sultan. Roger Powell
and John Wilcox all have Impressive records
of their own), and down-to-earthedness,
and just plain enthusiasm (you can tell thai
they're having a great time up there), make
Utopia one of Ihe besl bands to catch in concert. Their J.B. Scotl's show was one of the
besl concerts to have appeared there In recent months. It was Just One Victory in a

j £ f ne of Ihe hottest bands out of

peared at J.B. Scott's. Their
musically balanced energetic set shnuld've
received roars from the crowd, bul--Where
were they?
Ray Caligiure
Less than 100 people attended the show
to see The Brains perform songs from their
second album. "Electronic Eden," newly
released on Polygram records.
The club seemed huge in comparison lo
the liny crowd. This presented The Brains
with a difficult situation, which they handled
extremely well by maintaining a good rapport with.the audience, while entertaining
them with an interesting assortment of
danceable songs.
The Brains are led by singer-songwriter
and synthesizer player Tom Gray. Gray
receives ample support from guitarist Rick
Price, bassist Bryan Smilhwick and drummer
Charles Wolff, whose simple but powerful
style resembles that of Hugo Burnham, from
the Gang of Four.
Performing songs of varying tempos from
"Electronic Eden," The Brains quickly
established themselves with the crowd.
Slow, moody pieces like "Hypnotized" and
"Eyes of Ice," which featured Gray's flowing
keyboard melodies, provided many interesting effects. And on "Dream Life," a
frantic rocker."guitarist Price took command
of the stage. Price's soarings leads got the
crowd up and dancing.
The Brains didn't just stand up and play-Ihey moved around and encouraged the
crowd to dance.
The besl audience reaction they received
all night occurred when Price jumped Into
The Brains demonstrated their talent for
performing well under adverse conditions.
With a bigger crowd, there's no telling what
they could achieve.
There is still the problem of filling these
clubs they're performing at, especially in
dead spots like Albany, where publicity is
needed. Their record company. Polygram,
is responsible for promoting the band's
records and tours. So far, they're doing a

while in Ihe middle of a piercing solo thai

He even leaned over one of the front tables
and let the sealed spectators play his guitar.
This was the high point of their show,
Instead of letting the small crowd upset
their egos, The Brains played hard and enjoyed themselves as much as the audience
terrible Job.
Polygram has not advertised The Brains
enough. As a result, the already uphill struggle will be nearly impossible. Without a proper promotional campaign. The Brains will
suffer from poor record sales, and will have
less than capacity audiences to play for. except in huge markets like New York, where
the band is reasonably well known.
Bands are constantly being ripped off by
companies who refuse to promote them
Advertising can ,sell anything; look at all the
junk sold on television. If a bad band can be
sold, a good one can surely find success in
Airplay is crucial to the survival of any
band; If they're not heard, they won't sell
records. These corporations would rather invest their money in an established act. than
lo try to push an unknown band onto the airwaves.
This Is the biggest task The Brains now
face. They have the talent, but Polygram's
support Is essential to their success.
The Brains are one of the better bands on
the club circuit. With good songs and enler
laining performances, they can showi ase
their talents well In a club selling. They need
promotion though, to give them a bettor
chance at obtaining success.
There are some catchy songs that could
break the bank on the radio. "Hypnoti/ed"is
one such song. Possessing a likeable,
dreamy quality, with good singing and intricate guitarwork, "Hypnotized" is an excellent introduction to The Brains.
The concert was a success after all. If J.B
Scott's had been filled that night, few would
have been disappointed.
So. next lime a r o u n d , use your

April 24,
-Sound & Vision •
ohn Boorman doesn't photograph
Images so much as he creates them
himself. This tendency was obvious In his film, The Heretic: The Exorcist
Pt. 11, In which his most Interesting scenes
were completely divorced from a realistic
mlse en scene and took on the appearance
of pure fantasy.
lo power Is handled In a manner that Is too
story-bookish. The humor which occasionally arises is a little jarring — the audience has
had no clue that this Is a story with any comedy in It. (Merlin, played with unsettling eccentricity by Nlcol Williamson. Is frequently a
comic figure, as Is Nigel Terry's Arthur in his
early scenes.)

In addition, much like the Arthurian
romances it seems based o n , Excallbur

In Excallbur, his most recent and most interesting film, he may have found a milieu
which suits his propensity.
Dramatically, Excallbur Is Boorman and
co-scrlpler Rospo Pallenberg's retelling of the
familiar Arthurian legend, based largely on
Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur. Its roots are
very much Ihe Arthurian romances of the
fourteenth century. Visually, Boorman has
done nothing less than create his own Dark
Ages, where "Ihe land Is divided, and
without a king."

t h e First Barefoot
Press Conference
believe II or not, now has something In common with Boston
P u t Philadelphia, and New Haven. Albany is now a preview city for a New York play.
^ ^ • ^
Al Weiner, an Albany Slale professor of play writing, Is about lo see Iris play,
The First Barefoot Dancer produced off-Broadway. It's preview run will be May fifth
through May seventh at SUNYA's Performing Arts Center.
The First Barefoot Dancer Is a fictionalized account of the two lasl days In the life of
Isadora Duncan, Ihe controversial American dancer. The play Is a one-woman showcase
starring Suzanah Scher as Isadora. Unlike mosi one-performer shows, Weiner and director
Peter Bennett told reporters, Isadora will nol address the.audlence. Instead, she will speak
to herself, on Ihe phone, Inlo a dictaphone, and other devices to keep her from
acknowledging Ihe audience directly.
This sets The First Barefoot Dancer apart from other one-man or woman plays like The
Belle of Amherst. Oscar Wilde In an Evening of Diversion and Delight, and Paul Robeson.
The First Barefoot Dancer marks Welner's debut as a playwright. Intrlgulngly, he says
that the play, which is sel al the end of Isadora's life, when she was over the hill as an artist,
and dissolute as a person, Is a comedy.
Asked If audiences would be likely to agree, Mr, Weiner said "I don't know."
Ms. Scher, who plays the pari, was reticent on that point. Instead she said "It's an actress's dream. I'm getting In run the gamut." Asked by another reporter how she was
preparing to play the aging Isadora, she said "I'm smoking heavily, and Peter (Bennett) is
teaching me to drink martinis."
After Its five performance run, The First Barefoot Dancer will open at the Wonderhorse
Theatre at 833 E. 4th St. In New York City on May 15th.

But It's very difficult to remember Ihe simple
things that make up Ihe minds ol lit tit? boys
and girls."
The man and boy In Bill's mental picture
were still running, and Iheir speed Increased
as Ihey ran farlher and farther In the yard.
They seemed lo be aging rapidly with each
new step.
"But by Ihe lime a man regains an
understanding of the child's mind, It's too
late lo do anything about II. So he's stuck
with the body ol an old man and the mind of
a child."
The man in Bill's mental picture had now
gotten lo the point ol regression. He hail
become a little boy. and the little boy had
consequently grown lo middle age The
now middle-aged man grabbed Ihe ball
away from the now-little boy, and he ran
with II. The little boy began lo cry hysterical-
ly. Water overflowed in his eyes, and blurred
his vision.
" A n d the child has il just as bad. because
uii.ll he's an old man. he'll never know what
it's like lo really crave your childhood again.
He's so busy trying to please himself that he
can't even think of understanding old men."
Bill stared al Ihe beige wall. It had taken
only a few seconds for his hard, life-torn exterior lo melt into a puddle of loneliness,
which lay on Ihe sheet of his hospital bed.
Ills eyes led the wall ami Instead began lo
observe his chapped, calloused hands. He
thought of how they used to stroke the hair
of his son and ihe cheek ol his wile. Now his
hands helped to support him in a room full
of dirty bedpans, lifeless sterility, tear-stained
tissues, creaky hospital beds, and a sensitive
old man: an old man with whom Bill had
nothing and everything In common.
Bill looked up and gazed Into the mirror.

The picture reappeared In his reflection, and
the middle-aged man was still running from
ihe crying child . . .
The little boy's legs flailed wildly In ihe tall
grass, as he tried lo run fasler. He followed
the middle-aged man Ihrough the front door
of a house and into a living room He might
have caughl up had he not stopped to read
Ihe words o l a poem, impressed into a
bronze carving that hung on the wall. The
carving intrigued the young child, as it shone
brlghlly in Ihe noon day sun. and he was just
able to read II ihrough ihe blur of his tears.
The lille of Ihe poem was "Whal is a
house?" The answer read. " A world of strife
shul out. a world of love shut In." The boy
read Ihe words over and over again until
Ihey made sense to him Then, he ran
throughout the house, searching lor Ihe
middle-aged man. only to discover thai he

mandatory student activity fee.
NYP1RO is a private group that does not
represent all students not docs it represent
just students. 1 believe it is wrong to fund
one private political group and not others
with a mandatory fee. I f we musl fund
NYPIRG then we should fund other
political groups, such as the Moral Majority, which also has supporters on campus.
Wc must fund all viable groups or none to
be fair.
if funding is optional lo N Y P I R G , then
it will be more responsive to the needs and
concerns of students, as its funding will depend on it.
A better way to fund N Y P I R O would be
to allow students to use the optional checkoff on Ihe bursar payment form. This
would allow students Ihe freedom of choice
lo fund N Y P I R G , jusl as students can give
contributions to Iheir class or lo 5-quad ambulance. This method o f funding would not
infringe on Ihe rights o f students who do
nol support the issues lhal N Y P I R G
I hope thai students will exercise their option to protect their freedom o f choice and
allow other students to do the same. The
only way lo do this is to vole NO on the
NYPIRG referendum.

Funding Dilemma
To Ihe Editor:
This week studenls have the opportunity
to vote on the N Y P I R G referendum lor
allocation o f funding from ihe Student
Association. Many students arc nol aware
thai N Y P I R G , an independent political
organization, receives $4.00 per year oul of
every student activity fee (Ihe fee is mandatory for all full-time undergrads). I feel
lhal individual students should be Ihe ones
lhal make Ihe decision as to give money lo
NYPIRG or not.
Students should decide for themselves
whether Ihey wish to contribute to this
political organization just as they have ihe
option to contribute to any other political
If N Y P I R G , who call themselves champions of student rights, arc truly worthy of
iheir own praise then they should have no
problem getting students to voluntarily contribute lo their cause. Optional funding
would also make N Y P I R G more accounlable to students' interest because their funding would not be guaranteed. Considering the fact lhal N Y P I R G is a political
organization, I believe that this would be a
very healthy altitude for them to have.
It may be argued that students will Iry to
gel away with the benefits of N Y P I R O and
find it a worthwhile organization will not
quibble w i l h a $4 charge on a $1,000.00 tuition bill. Class dues, for example, are an
optional fee which most studenls pay.
I am not saying that N Y P I R O should not
be runded al all, bin only lhal ihe money
should be an optional fee and not pari ol'
the mandatory student activity lee. I would
urge all studenls to vote NO on Ihe
NYPIRO referendum Ibis week.

^Quality Education^
To the Editor:
The United .tales, despite Us shortfalls,
provides an unequalled arena of opportunities and freedom. The cornerstone ol
ibis free, democratic society is lis public
education system. In recent weeks and
inomhs lhal free public education system
has come under severe attack, in the name
of economy and the need lo fight inflation.
The proposed cms in federal spending ill
education across the country, and in particular in New York Stale, will have a
devastating impact. Every single school
district In New York Stale will feel Us Impact; and in speaking about school districts,
wc are speaking of our most precious commodity, our children, who will be Ihe
leaders o f our future democratic society.
Congressmen and women need to hear
from citizens who are concerned about the
loss of programs and opportunities for our
youngsters. While ihe proposed federal
budget reduces other areas of government
by roughtly seven percent, the prosed
budget would reduce school -pending by
nearly 30 percent. For New • ark State
alone, the cuts to schools represent over
$657 million. The burden of replacing programs will be picked up by local and state
taxes or the needs of children will simply go
I l is one thing to bring redcral spending
under control; il is quite anolher thing to
turn away from the needs o f millions of
children. Il is also false economics to reduce
federal spending on schools by 30 percent
and shift the replacement burden to local
homeowners who pay school taxes.

Telethon Leaders T o the Editor:
ll is rightly supposed that the leadership
in SUNY's proud fund raising organizallon, Telethon, would be characterized by
discretion and superiority in judgment,
and considerate, balanced decisions free
from selfish political concerns. It is unfortunate thai we have been proven wrong in
these assumptions. Wc take no pleasure in
disclosing ihe unthoughtful and damaging
behavior of the appoinlcd leaders of
Telethon ' 8 1 .
It is the highest f o r m o f egotism for a
leader to believe the syslem good because it
got him the position. Anolher form of
egotism is to believe that since he is in the
position he Is wise. A n d yet anolher f o r m :
since he is wise, as evidenced by his posit i o n , he is capable of making the best decision as to who should be ihe next leader. II
is simply arrogance and irresponsibility for
a leader lo state thai he does nol have lo
answer lo those to whom he was appointed
lo lead.
We feel thai our best interests have been
betrayed by Ihe careless and disrespectful
appointment of the ncxl leaders, nol
specifically by who was chosen, for we have
no doubts as lo Iheir abilities, but by who
specifically was nol chosen. It is our intent,
as former staff members, to appeal Ihe decsion l o a body of laws which govern the
procedures of non-profit organizations and
which were designed in order lo eliminate
such scandalous abuses,
We propose an election be called either lo
confirm our leaders' appointments, or to
alter them, nol al another's expense, but as
the proper reward Tor hard work and
talented leadership.

Election Blues
The election this year has been a sham. It has been marked by
poor scheduling, confusion and lack of participation.
Straddling the campaign over a holiday weekend has caused a
very awkward election. Candidates were given only two days
while school was in session to campaign and because of this they
were only able to reach a limited number of students.
Confusion at the polls has taken its toll. People manning the
polling station yesterday in the Campus Center were unfamiliar
with the election procedure and turned eligible voters away. And
if you did get a chance to vote, you needed an atlas to figure out
which lever corresponded to which choice.
Although these problems have proven detrimental to the election, they are by no means excuses not to vote. The issues at stake
are too important to ignore. Both the outcome of each of the
three referenda and the SA officers elected will affect the life of
every student attending SUNYA.
If you have not yet voted, find the time this afternoon to do so.
If you have already voted, try to convince others to vote.
This is your chance to show your pleasure or displeasure at the
way things have been done in this and past years. Don't fall into
the trap of thinking that by not voting you are expressing your
dissatisfaction with student government. Your failure to vote only shows that you would not take the time to go to the polls, and
does not express approval or disapproval.
If in the end you decide not to vote, that is your own decision.
However, if next year something bothers you, don't feel that you
have any right to complain. You don't.

Laundry Blues
T o The Editor:
There are certain needs thai must be
taken care of If one chooses lo live on campus.
One of them is laundry. I l is
reasonable lhal students should have to pay
for Ihe use of Ihe washing machines, after
all even the machines in an apartment
building cost money. Il is not reasonable,
however, lo have almost no machines in
working order.
Presently in Melville Hall, out ol four
washing machines, only one docs nol leave
,„c clothes as wet as if they had been
drowned In the ocean when it is clone. One
ol the fnui dryers docs not use heat when
how arc
t u m b , j l l g ,|,c cU.ll.es. I ask you
clothes to dry if one docs nol use heal in the
dryer'' At this very moment, my clothes are
spinning around hopelessly in a bin o f cool
nl, because by the time I discovered the
hcailess dryer, all Ihe others were occupied.
I really don't mind doing my own laundry but I have things lo do other than sitring around for up I " live hours walling lor

first consulting the legislature.
Students also felt that the

Cronin, " W h a r t o n has circumvented his consitucnts to draw
up the SUNY budget." '
Wharton, however, insists that
the board of trustees felt it was better to try to meet the critical needs
of the university before the
legislature received the budget.
"In their judgement it was important to raise the tuition before
the legislature acted."
Wharton added that in this way
the board avoided program retrenchments which could have resulted
if the legislature had not restored
enough money to SUNY's budget.

how Mission Control operates. Approximately one month before the
blast-off date, which is still not
firm, they will be asked to visit Mission Control and take part in
simulated flight tests. Vonnegut expects the flight to occur in
September or October.
Approximately six months ago
the group gave a tutorial to Truly

will allow the astronauts to become
familiar with problems that may
arise with the apparatus, and will
allow Vonnegut and his colleagues

Inconsistency has been the theme
of the 1981 Albany lacrosse season
and the last week has not been any
different. The Danes dropped three
of four contests, losing to Cortland,
Oeneseo and RPI while defeating
the University of Vermont Wednesday afternoon.
Monday against RPI, the Danes
played a good squad evenly in the
first half and were trailing only 8-4
al the midpoint.
The second half was a totally different story. Albany could not control penalty situations and RPI
started fast breaking for some quick
goals. When the dust cleared RPI
was on top 15-6 and Albany had
itself another loss.
"We performed well in the first
half, then wc played no fundamental ball — catching, throwing and
getting ground balls, and we
basically just couldn't clear the
ball," staled Albany varsity
•ThE A N T S
"We played three good periods
of lacrosse against a Division I
team," praised Motta.
In the win, DaRos recorded two
more goals. Nelson scored two and
added an assist. Luke Esposito and
Slocum each had a tally.
lacrosse coach Mike Motta.
Kenny DaRos played a good offensive game as he scored the hat
trick recording three goals in the
contest. Mike Slocum, Glen
Magi ane and John Nelson each added one goal. Rut these tallies were
far from enough as RPI scored on
six power plays which led them to a
triumph over the inexperienced
Wednesday against the University of Vermonl it was a different
story. Despite playing with five injured players, including allackman
Dave Faust and midfielder Slocum
who had a bad knee, the Danes
recorded their first victory after
three straight losses, H-7.
At the half, Albany was leading
sllmly, 4-3. In the third period, Vermont took advantage of Albany
penalties to score two goals.
"The period was one continual
fast break and Vermont took better
advantage of the situation," added
With six minutes remaining in the
game the Danes found themselves
down 6-4. They knew they had a
job to do if they wanted victory and
the Danes quickly cut away at the
Vermont lead. It payed off and with
1:20 remaining Magranc slammed
in the fourth goal of the period and
Albany found itself a victory.
Against Cortland and Gencsco
Ihc Dane's inexperience and youth
showed through. At Cortland, the
Danes played a respectable first half
moving the ball well and were trailing 5-3. The second half proved to
be a different game as Cortland
outscored Albany 10-2 In gliding to
a 15-6 romping.
In the contest with Oeneseo the
match was decided on four quick
goals by the opposition in the third
period. The margin was too great to
overcome and Gencseo came up on
top 9-6.
"We played well at times, but we
looked very shaky on penalty
situations where we were a man
down," Motta said. "Our 3-5
record is due mainly to little experience, youth and lack of concentration."

Women's Softball Team Gets Off to Flying Start
by Phil Pivnlck
Albany's women's Softball team
got off to a flying start this spring
by winning six of their first eight
games. "This is the most slcilled
team I've coached, we've got a lot
of depth which enables us to pinchhit a lot and maneuver my
defense," said an enthusiastic
coach Lee Rhenish.
On- Tuesday, the girls swept a
doubleheadcr from RPI, winning
the first game 10-1, and taking the
nightcap 19-11. "In the first game
we played super, we didn't commit
an error and Lynn Truss pitched a
great game," said second baseman
and captain Kathy Curalolo. Truss
helped her own cause with a three
run homer. She hurled a great game
not allowing a single walk. Trudi
Eisaman paced the Dane i "ack
the hands of Union in a very sloppy
game, 10-4.
The goal of the team is to qualify
for the state tournament to be held
on May 8-9 here in Albany. Bids for
the tournament will be announced
victories came this season over New
I Paltz, 12-0, and LeMbyne also fell
victim to the Dane bats, 11-1.
A doublehcader split with
Binghamlon accounted for one of
the losses. The other defeat came at
Before the vacation the girls topped Oneonta 7-4. Truss, again was

Unable to maintain the momentum from their previous wins,
against Binghamlon, the Albany
State women's tennis team recently
added two losses to their spring pursuits bringing their season reeord to
1-2. Coach Peggy Mann remains
optimistic however. "The women
are playing very good tennis. Their
competition is really tough," she
said. "We need some line weather

Albany Netmen Win Notches 100th For Lewis
by Bob Bcllaflorc
The task was simple. All the
Albany men's tennis team had to do
was win once more, and coach Bob
Lewis would have his 100th career
victory. Last week, a better,
prepared Middlebury team delayed
the milestone, but when Union
came to the Dutch Quad courts
Tuesday, nothing was getting in
Albany's way — not the icy-cold
wind and the near-freezing conditions, and certainly not the Union
tennis team.
Carrying out the task ended up
simpler than Lewis thought. The
Danes completely dominated their
foes from Schenectady by taking all
nine matches — most of them with
comforting ease.
Albany won three of the six
singles contests in straight sets, and
won the first set in all but one. And
in the other three pairings, the
netmen had no trouble getting the
third. When it was time to play
doubles, Albany already had the
match clinched but did not let up,
and breezed through to complete

Barry Rosenberg in a three-scl match. (Photo: Dave Asher)
the shutout. .
Third singles player Rob Karen
had the easiest day of all in beating
Tom Lestena by successive 6-2
scores. Number two man Fred
Gaber had a similar lack of difficulty and did away with Dwight Moore
in straight 6-3 sets. Fifth player Andy Diamond squeaked by in the
first set (7-6) to slam the door shut
on Union's Steve Eskanazi in the second, 6-2.
In the contests that went the
distance, Albany always recovered.
Dave Ulrich made the best com-
eback. After losing the opening set
to John Antiles, 4-6, Ulrich
manhandled him, 6-3, 6-1 to win.
Top Albany player Barry Levine
sandwiched a 4-6 loss to Barry
Rosenberg between 6-2 and 6-1
wins. Russ Kasow, playing in the
sixth slot, took the first set over
Dave Katz, 6-2. Katz rebounded for
a 6-1 win in the middle set, but
Kasow efficiently squashed his
hopes with another 6-2 victory in
the final set.

Gaber, Karen and Ulrich, Kasow

wins against a talented Middlebury squad. (Photo: Dave Asher)
and Dave Lerner all vyon their proset matches by 8-4 scores.
Strong winds and cold weather
do not make for top-notch tennis,
but Albany overcame the conditions in classic style. While the
Dane netmen may not have played
to the best of their ability, they certainly performed well enough to
"Whenever you have a cold and
windy day, it's hard to play well,"
Lewis said. "But you have to adjust
to the weather, and 1 think out guys
adjust really well.
"1 think we're just a better team
than Union," he continued, "I
figured we'd beat them, bin 1
wasn't sure if we'd sweep all the
Last week though, the netmen
had trouble adjusting to four
straight days without practice, and
fell to a talented Middlebury learn,
6-3. Albany's only wins came off
the racquets of Karen in third
singles, Kasow in sixth singles, and
from Ihe combined efforts of
Levine and Gaber in first doubles.
"I'd liked lo have played them
when we were a little sharper," said
Lewis, without taking anything
away from Middlebury. "We 'vere
not match-tough for them."
The neimcn lake their 5-2 record
to Cornell today, but are back
home tomorrow to face conference
rival Binghamton. The Colonials
were second to the Danes in the
SUNYAC's last fall by a solitary
point, and Lewis expects a similarly
close contest tomorrow.
Action starts at noon on the
Dutch Quad courts, and Lewis
hopes to start working on his second hundred.
Skeel Gets Win Number 200; Danes Get Eighth
by Larry Kaliu
The Albany Stale baseball team
went into RP1 last Thursday looking to reach two milestones,
but they had to put one on
hold. However, the Dunes slill
hombed hard-hitting RPI, 16-12.
The win was Albany's sixth
straight, extending their spring
record to 8-1, and also marked Rick
Skeel's 200th career victory as a
couch. Skeel has coached al Albany
lor only a year and a half, collecting
must of his 200 wins and 70 losses al
Heidelberg College in Ohio.
"It's nice lo achieve that kind of
milestone," Skeel said, "but this
win doesn't mean as much to me as
it meant to the kids to be 8-1 and to
beat a good RPI ballclub."
Albany starting pitcher Mike
Esposito went into the game looking for a milestone of his own, but
he came up short. The Dane ace
tied the Albany record for most
wins in a season when he picked up
his seventh against Binghamton last
week (he was 5-2 in the fall), but
couldn't survive the fifth inning
against RPI after being shellacked
for eleven runs by the Engineers.
"The umps were not giving Mike
much on the corners," Skeel noted.'
"His curveball has to be on the corners to be effective."
Ron Massaroni picked up the win
with a very good relief stint for his
third victory of the spring season,
tops on the team, against one loss,
Massaroni entered the game with
Albany down, 11-10, but held Ihe
RPI offense lo one run, while Ihe
torrid Dane bailers exploded for six
more of their own.
Albany rapped 16 hits off RPI's
iwo lop hurlers. Mall Anlalek led
ihe Albany allack, reaching base all
six times he was al bai with three
hits and iwo walks, as well as being
hit by a pilch. Bruce Rowlands contributed four hits and Bob Arcario
and Jim Lynch also slood oul.
"Everybody jtisl hit the heck out
of the ball," said Skeel, and he also
noied that the Danes took control
when they knocked RPI's ace out
of the box in the fifth and continued lo pound the bullpen.
"It was like pouring kerosene on
a fire," he said. "We just went
crazy after that."
Albany's offensive attack was
never stronger, bul the defense left
something lo be desired, allowing
eight unearned runs to let Ihe
Engineers stay in the game. Crucial
errors like misjudged fly balls were
committed on routine plays that
should have gotten the Danes out of
big innings.
Albany meets Colgate tomorrow
afternoon at home in a
doubleheader. The first game
begins at 1:00.
"We know we're playing good
baseball," said Skeel, "and we're
going to go out and keep knocking
heads together."
ROTC to Locate at SUNYA
Several Campus Groups Protest
by Susan Milligan
An ROTC "extension center
agreement" has been approved by
President Vincent O'Lcary to allow
SUNYA students enrolled in the
program lo attend ROTC classes at
SUNYA, according lo Vice President of University Affairs Lewis
"What it involves is thai courses
presently given at Rensselaer
Polytechnic Institute (RPI) - for
which SUNYA students had to
travel 10 RPI - will now be offered
on campus," he said.
Welch said that the proposal was
reviewed and approved by the
Educational Policy Council (EPC)
of the University Senate, the executive board of the University
Senate, and ultimately O'Lcary.
The Scnale as a whole did not vole
on ihe plan.
"We're one of the councils thai
approved it," said EPC Chair Al
Cali, "and we recommended that
the President approve it...bul it
originated with the students."
Several campus groups are
disturbed by the agreement as well
as the manner al which il was arrived.
"There was no debate or discussion," said Peace Project steering
committee member Dave Dragcr.
"They didn't want anyone to know
aboul It."
Drager said the Peace Project has
taken a stand against ROTC on
campus because "il is nol
"This is not a vocational or
military school," he continued. "It
is a liberal arts and sciences school.
Teaching people how to kill is Ihe
antithesis of the humanities."
Drager said also he thinks Ihe
ROTC program competes directly
with education.
"Financial aid and student loans
arc being cut back tremendously
and the military budget is being increased," he explained. "While
education is cheap, people will go to
school. Bul (the cuts) are forcing
students inlo ROTC.
"This campus doesn't have lo offer courses that aren't academic,"
he continued. "The school is failing
in ils mission lo offer low-cost,
quality education."
Cali stressed thai "there is a difference between having an extension center agreement and voting
ROTC back as a university activity."
Drager argued thai "Iwo years
ago, negotiations were made so that
SUNYA students could take pari in
Ihe ROTC program with Ihe condition thai those courses nol be
taught on this campus.
"Two years from now, we could
easily have Ihe program reinstated
completely," he said.

Dircelor Mark Duntca said he
believes Ibc iiucnlion of this
redisricting is to spilt student v o l e s .
McEncny's proposal follows a recent courl decision giving Albany
students the right lo vote in their
college communities.
McEneny, however, denies
Dunlca's allegations. "The ward
lines were primarily determined by
traditional neighborhoods," said
"Students are historically split inlo several wards because of Ihe
location of the old SUNY campus
and Ihe roule of Ihe SUNY bus
line," explained McEneny.
One reason cited by McEneny for
the redistricting is lhal Albany has
seen a population reduction of
"The redislricting is necessary to
maintain the one man-one vote concept outlined by the Supreme
Court," said McEneny.
McEneny added that Ihe
redistricting would have been
neccssury even if there wasn't a
population loss because of the
tremendous shift in population.
According to McEneny, many
people have moved out of the
Southend district of Albany.
This has resulted in the merging
of three wards into a new ward, pitting the only Iwo black aldermen in
Ihe city against each other in the
next election.
Dunlea questioned the methods
used in determining the new wards,
and said lhal Ihere is some controversy as to the determination of
Ihe newly created Ward 14.
The estimated number of voters
in this area is 7,200, said Dunlea.
He claimed, however, that the actual number of volers on the SUNY
