Fred Gabcr also found himself in

Knee Injury Downs Pratt;
May Be Out for the Year
by Marc Haspel
It had the makings to be one o f Ihc most satisfying Dane victories of
the season. Salurday's 32-0 shellacking ol Ihc Buffalo Bulls was exactly what the doctor had ordered to lift the Danes ul'lcr the previous
week's loss to Union.
The Danes were winners, but on this day Ihey suffered perhaps an
even greater loss. Thul was Ihc loss of their fine starling quarterback
junior T o m Pratt.
W i t h 9:05 left in the fourth quarter, Pratt went down after throwing
an incomplete pass under heavy Buffalo pressure. Prall was helped o f f
the field and spent Ihc remainder o f the game being attended lo in Ihc
A medical examination has since determined that Pratt suffered a
second degree sprain o f the knee, l i e has had a cast placed on i l , which
is expected lo remain there from three lo five weeks, according to
trainer Jack Koelmel.
Ironically, Pratt's injury struck during his finest hour as a Dane. A l
Jhe time o f his injury, he had rushed 18 limes gaining 65 yards and had
completed eight of 15 pass attempts for 155 yards without being intercepted once.
" I n j u r i e s arc a factor of l i f e , " commented head coach
Bob Ford. " N o one enjoys them — coaches, trainers and players."
Unfortunately for Albany, this lime Ihc injury struck the Danes'
number one quarterback late in the game, when for all intents and purposes, the Danes had the game all sewed up. Certainly, the Danes will
miss his services.
" T o m was progressing very well this year. Our quarterback situation was the big question m a r k , " Ford added, " b u t Pratt was developing into one o f the best we've had.
" W e ' l l miss him but life goes on. We'll have lo do the best with the
talent we have l e f t . "

Referendum For State Prison Bond is Contested
by Demi B e l /
The announcement by Stale officials Wednesday that the stale
prison population is over 110% of
cell capacity highlighted a week of
controversy over the state's upcoming prison bond referendum.
The $500 million bond issue, to
be decided in November's general
election as Proposition One, is intended to raise funds fot the construction o f three new maximumsecurity prisons. The prisons would
provide approximately 4,000 new
Othet provisions o( the referendum provide funds fot refurbishing
existing prisons and improving
county jails.
The prison bond has become a
highly debated issue. Proponents
contend that the new cells aie
necessary to relieve dangerous and
inhumane overcrowing, Opponents
o f ihc measure claim thai judges
would quickly fill the new cells con-
tinuing the overcrowding, and
much more . cost-effective procedures are available to deal with
non-violent offenders.
The controversy continued this
week with debates and press conferences held from both those
favoring and opposing the bond.
In a meeting Wednesday with
editors of the Albany Times Union
Thomas Cough lin, Commission?)
of Correctional Services, said the
prisonci population in New York

the prison bond issue,
" E v e r y o n e in the (criminal
justice) system knows that the bond
issue will not reduce the crime
rate," Duscnbury said. He explained thai mosi of costs were not
mentioned in the referendum.
Figures prepared by Voters Against

U.S. Sends Two AWACS
CAIRO, Egypt (AP) America's sophisticated AWACS
radar planes patrolled Egyptian airspace yesterday as
President Hosni Mubarak swore in his Cabinet and
ordered the death penally for anyone using unlicensed
weapons. Gen. Ahmed Nasser, commander of the Cairo
West military base, lold reporters Ihc Airborne Warning
and Control Systems planes entered Egyptian airspace at
noon — 6 a.m. EDT — and began patrolling. The
United States sent ihc two AWACS jets to Egypt lo
demonstrate confidence in Mubatak, who replaced
assassinated president Anwar Sadat. Nasser did nol
specify where the jets were patrolling. The state information director, Mohammed Hakki, said the decision lo
send the Airborne Warning and Conlrol System planes
to Egypt was made in Washington under an agreemenl
between the Iwo countries. Defense Minisler Ahdel
Halim Abu Ghazala, told reporters "It's an agreemenl
thai iwo AWACS be stationed here to watch over the

Military P«U Increased
WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) The 2.1 million men and
women in the armed forces arc gelling pay increases of
up lo 17 percent, which President Reagan says will attract "well-motivated, high-quality" people lo the
military. Reagan signed the $4.5 billion measure
Wednesday, making the raises retroactive lo Oct. I.
"Attracting and retaining well-motivated, high-quality
military personnel is a critical element of my commitment to strengthen America's defenses," the president
said in a statement, "This hill will enable us lo do thai."
"For too long," he added, "our dedicated military personnel have been undercompensated for the sacrifices
and family disruptions they have had lo enduic in protecting Ihc freedom of all of us." Enlisted personnel will
receive increases ranging from 10 percent lo 17 percent,
depending upon experience. Officers will receive a 14.3
pcrcenl raise. New recruits, Tor example, will gel a 10
percent pay boost from $501 lo $551 a month, while a
sergeant first class or chief petty officer wilh 14 years
service will gel a 17 percent'false, going from $1,138 a
month to $1,331. The hill also raises from $5000 lo
$8000 the maximum bonus paid for four-year
enlistments in certain critical skills.
"Propaganda" Charged

said a "Propaganda Campaign" has beer. la.inched
"llial would have Ihc world believe ihc capitalist U.S. is

thai idea and said I lie best way lot poor countries lo

from lagging behind and refusing lo do our part, ihc
United Slales is leading ihc way ill helping lo heller ihc
lives of citizens in developing countries," he said. "Free
people build free markets that ignite dynamic development for everyone," Reagan said, citing the United

buy about one-half of all manufactured goods exported
by non-OPEC developing countries, Reagan said, and

He added that "No matter where you look today, you
will sec thai development depends on economic
freedom. In his prepared speech, Reagan lold the
World Afrairs Council of Philadelphia: "To listen lo
some shrill voices, you'd think our policies were as
stingy as your Philadelphia Eagles defense." Il was nol
clear what specific criticism of U.S. foreign aid policies
Reagan was referring to. In recent years, there has been
an undercurrent of criticism from industrial and Third
World nations'alike that the United Stales lias not been
doing its share in aiding poor nations. Robert S.
McNamara, the former president or the World Bank,
has frequently complained thai the United Slales was

Humanists Are Higher
According to a recent study issued \ \ the Bell
Telephone system (American Telephone and Telegraph) and Ihc Association of American Colleges, college
graduates who receive their degrees in the Humanities
and Social Sciences have significantly better administrative skills than students in oilier areas.
For example, on a scale from I lo 5, Humanists and
social Scientists scored 3.1 In leadership skills, compared
lo 2.3 for Malh/Seienee, 2.4 for Engineering, and 2.7
for Business majors. Humanists and Social Scientists
also ranked highest among ihc four groups in Oral communication skills, Range ol Interests, and Creativity.
Moreover, Humanists and Social Scientists are promoted more quickly and in larger numbers: according lo
Bell's Managemeni Project Sludy,'Usingasamplcof274
college graduates employed by Bell, 46 of Ihc Humanists',
and Social Scientist, were judged lo have Middle
Managemeni potential, compared lo 26 of Ihc Engineers
and 31 or Ihc Business Majors. After 20 years, 43 had
reached a fourth level oi higher in the corporate hierarchy, compared to 23 of the engineers and 32 of Ihc

LC Maintenance Fee is Proposed
by Steve Grccnberg
A proposal lo impose a $45 fee
on any group using a lecture center
room on a weekend night is being
considered by the Plain Department, according to Ihc department's Director, Dennis Stevens.
The fee would be used to offset
Ihc cost of cleaning the lecture
center, Ihe hallway, and the
bathrooms for limes when classes
are nol scheducd, Stevens said.
SA Vice President Woody Popper, a member of the SA team
ncgotialing wilh 'Stevens, estimated
thai this proposal would cost SA
approximately $10,000 annually.
Albany Stale Cinema (ASC),
Tower East Cinema (TEC) and Ihc
Inicrnalional Film Group (IFG),
would be hardest hit if the fee is implemented. The SA film groups
each use Ihc lecture centers nearly
every weekend night.
Besides student groups, Stevens
said, university and student groups
use Ihe lecture center rooms.
According to Stevens, lecture

weekends nearly every lecture
center room may be used, but on
others (the lecture centers) may only

Ihe new fee a year ago. The Plain
Department Director said he received the final go ahead from the New
York Stale Department of Budget
on May 15, 1981.
Rather than implementing the fee
Immediately, Stevens said he decided "lo hold olT until Ihc fall at the
request of SA."
Currently representatives from

Stevens admits that part of the
problem is indeed a lack of staff;
however, there is also a lack of
money. And despite both shortages,
there is still "an absolute need to
have lecture halls clean and in good
condition Monday mornings,"
Stevens said.
ASC President Diarmuid Quinn
said thai his group has offered to
clean up in the past but "ihe custodians lold us nol to bother."
Peter Engall,_Presldenl of TEC,
said that his group has also offered
to clean up and has been advised by
custodians that it would not be
necessary. When he informed a
custodian of the proposed charge,
the custodian "thought it was a

Remedies to Pre-Audit Problems to be Studied
by Judie I'.isenherg
Deputy Comptroller R, Wayne
Diesel has promised to evaluate and
iry lo resolve problems arising out
of ihe prc-audil program recently
instated al SUNYA and Buffalo
Stale after a meeting wilh sludcnl
representatives earlier iliis week.
The pre-audit program, in which
financial aid and refund checks
must firsl be cleared wilh the
Department of Audit and Conlrol
in Albany before students can
receive them, is only being
simulated in SUNYA. However, 10

President Tommy Babs, some people have ycl to receive their checks. p
Associate Director of Student Accounls Kathleen Wakcnian said her
department has already hired one
lull-lime person for the simulated
prc-audil. When SUNYA goes live,
Wakcnian predicts,"we're going to
require a total of two full-time people" to work on the pre-audil.
The meeting, which included
Diesel, attorney John Dugan, SA
President Dave Pologe, Student
Union member Alan Weincr and
Student Association of Ihe Slale
University (SASU) Executive Vice
Prcsidenl Julia Leavy, was held
because, "We wauled to lalk the
issue over with the people who were
doing (Ihc pre-audil) and make sure
they know ihc problems involved,"
Pologe said.
"We said iliey were causing
delays and ihey were shocked,"
Pologe added.
However, Diesel explained, "We
established the pilot program lo see
if it caused problems. Initially, we
didn't think il would."
Diesel added that Ihe Department
of Audil and Conlrol hadn't ycl
studied Ihe potential impact the prcaudii program would have. He
plans to look into the mailer and
speak again wilh Ihe sludcnl
representatives by the middle of

The students proposed several
alternatives to the present system of
prc-auditlng, Pologe said. These include establishing a cash advance
syslcm, whereby ihc audil would
take place after the student receives

It's Kelly's Merchants Group that seeks a

encourages stores that will be marketable,
while, according to Kelly, "working well with
the neighborhood."
Kelly is a bearded and blue-eyed twentyslx-year-old, a one-time tennis pro who
looks as if he enjoys the Frusen Gladje Ice
cream sold In his store. He was brought to
Ihe Capital District five years ago by the Colonic Tennis Club, In the heart of the suburban sprawl that characterized building trends
of the early 70's. He was resident pro and
general manager there by day, and came
home to Lark Slreel at nighl.
A store became available at the corner of
Madison and Lark, and Kelly saw an opportunity for fulfilling a dream. He gathered Ihe
capital and opened Timbuktu, a furniture
store. It did well for over 2 years, but spiraling interests rates encouraged Kelly lo look
for another venture.
Sweet Appetil was Kelly's new Idea. From
Ihe beginning, lie stressed the importance of
marketing, of achieving the "New York" at-
mosphere: the expensive Ice cream, fine
chocolates, and cut flowers of Ihe Greenwich Village cafe.
None of his plans would have come to
fruition if not for one thing: money. Kelly
says the area Is the third highest Income area
in Ihe Capital District. The professionals

Last December's issue of the Lark featured
a cartoon depicting the head of then
President-elect Ronald Reagan with a bull's

"Only 48 more assassination days until Inauguration."
Shortly after the issue was distributed,
Corcoran left for Honolulu. The Tfrrtes

badly-written little tabloid," hinted that Corcoran's departure was linked to the Secret
Service's investigation.
In fact, Corcoran, who voted for Reagan,
had planned to leave for Hawaii several
weeks before the search for him began, and
did not learn of the commotion his cartoon
had caused until two weeks into his stay in
Honolulu. Corcoran was visiting his parents
who had lived there for ten years. Corcoran

The Local Scene Is Sound
our of Albany's best rock bands

and Hudson streets last Saturday
as part of • the first annual Larkfest.
Demonstrating the spirit and drivejnvolved
In Albany's creative rock scene, The Young
Reptiles, The Units, T h e AD's and The
Morons played to enthusiastic crowds
throughout the day.
Ray Caligiure
The Young Reptiles were formed last
June by A l Kash (drummer for The Units)
and singer Brad Whiting. After the addition
of guitarist Dennis Herbert, the trio set out to
experiment with a simple guitar-drumsvocals line u p . Although there was no bass
player In the band (Whiting admits to difficulties In finding a good one), Whiting
believes the drummer and guitarist can (111 in
most of the bass holes. The band Is looking
for a conga player to play along with the
drummer. "We're trying to achieve African
rhythms on some of the songs," Whiting
Whiting has been Influenced of late by the
rhythms employed by The Talking Heads
and Public Image Ltd.. drawn to the primal
sound o l their music. He admires bands that
"don't make a big production number out of
it, and can cut down to the bare facts and still
achieve something."
The Young Reptiles have a 45 out called
"Screamin'," which includes "Nya Nya," the
name for an Indian Cobra, according to
Whiting. "It's not standard rock n' r o l l , " he
said. "We wanted to have some fun on the
B-slde, so we wrote this In the studio." In addition to these Eastern influences, Whiting
has been Inspired by rockabilly and music
from the early '70's such as David Bowie,
The New York Dolls and Mott the Hoople.

The Morons are a new six-member rock n'
roll outfll which plays only original songs,
and because of this, has had trouble getting
booked Into small clubs and bars.
"It's hard to play In this area because most
of the bar owners want cover bands," explained Stone, 2 0 , who is originally from
New Jersey. "We'd rather go after the alloriginal aspect and just say what we want to
say," he said. Stone has found Ihe reaction
to The Morons to be "mixed, because It takes
a while for people to accept us — they want
to hear covers."
Their music Is mostly Influenced by the
basic roots of rock n' roll, and artists such as
Bowie, Mott Ihe Hoople. The Clash and
Elvis Costello. The Morons have played at

about the local scene; "There are a lot of

The Units may have a successful luture
ahead of them. The return of Val Haynes
this summer afler a two month hospitalization has the band sounding as good as ever.
The Units are working o n their debut L P .
and expect to tour the Northeast and New
York to help promote their record afler Its
release. Best of luck.
Speaking of success. Blotto musl be included In this roundup of local bands. Blotto
is the most marketable Albany band ever,
with a building reputation throughout the
Northeast. They could be breaking on a national level soon, which would put Albany
on the rock n' roll map, and help the
chances of the local bands who are trying to
get discovered.

• Ten years later, in Rabbit Redux, Harry
copes with ralsino Nelson alone after Janice
leaves him for the Greek salesman w h o
works at her father's car lot. Harry goes
through a period of experimentation and
liberalism — opening his home to a
rebellious black drug dealer and his teenaged
sidekick Jill — which ends abruptly when the
girl burns to death In a fire set upon Harry's
home by angry neighbors.
All of this segues neatly into Ihe third Rabbit book, which finds Harry and Janice ten
years older still — In their mid-forties — and,
as the title suggests, enjoying a life of prosperity brought about by the booming
Toyota business Harry has Inherited from his
father-in-law. The Angstroms have reconciled, and their marriage seems to have settled
into a comfortable, If tolerant, relationship
based on — finally — a qulel and genuine
love. Instead of drinking Old-fashloneds In
front of children's T V shows all day long,
which was how we first saw her In Rabbit,

playing tennis at the country club, where
she and Harry belong to the " I n " crowd.
The troubles they have lived through
together still threaten their most Intimate
moments, but seem to have had the most
damaging long-range effect on Nelson, who
is now a twenty-three-year-old Kent State
dropout who returns to his family's home accompanied by his pregnant girlfriend.
Although there are several themes Intertwined here (most notably a twist on the archetypal father quest, as Harry wonders If
one of his car customers could be the
daughter he has never known), the novel is
primarily about the relationship between
Harry and Nelson. Harry wants his son lo do
more with his life than he has been able t o
do, but Nelson seems to Imitate exactly his
father's habit of fleeing when things are most
The similarities between father and son are
striking and significant. Like Harry, Nelson
feels obligated to marry the mother of his unborn child. Both of them were trapped In this
way at the same rate, although Harry never
went lo college as Nelson did but tried lo live
off the glory of his high school basketball
records. Both are probably condemned to
live a life as dreary as the Toyota lot,
although Nelson doesn't know this and
Harry has come to accept it.
Apart from Ihe parallels of their situations,
Nelson and Harry share several basic
character trails, especially In their atlitudes
toward women. Both see every woman Ihey

A Sell-out Crowd
Catches Jukes' Fever
No one wanted to go home as Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes literally brought
down the balcony at the Palace Theater last night. Southside, notified backstage of a swaying balcony, invited the upstairs stampers and dancers lo join the boisterous and enthusiastic crowd downstairs.
The enthusiasm was dampened somewhat by Ihe failure of Ihe warm-up band Little Feat
to appear. Before the concert started a stage hand informed the audience llial Little Feat
would be delayed because of a transportation problem and that the Jukes would be appearing first. Later. Southside regretfully announced that Little Feat would nol show al all bul
promised the crowd a few extra numbers lo ease the disappointment.
For their pari, Ihe Jukes pul on a show that made most fans forgel Little Feat. They
showed their versalallty by opening wilh Ihe Supremes' hit "Stop, In Ihe Name ol Love,"
singing a cappella on Manfred Mann's "Doo Wall Diddy Dlddy" and surprising the crowd
with an encore medley of Rolling Stones' hits.
The Jukes supplied a large helping of Ihelt own material, playing such hits as "I'm So
Anxious" ami "Trapped Again" along wllh some lesser known songs as "My Utile Girl So
Fine" and "Take II Inside."

Anwar Sadat: A Perspective
•'.rjVTo the Editor:
Anwar El Sadat had faith in his people,
he often said so.
Anwar El Sadal, a man who came from
beneath the collossal shadow of his
predesscsor Gamcl Abdcl Nasser, more
than any other political figure paved the
road for eventual peace in the Middle East.
A man of compassion, of intellect, and of
tremendous political savvy is dead—dead
because of a tragic Haw which, in Ihe final
analysis, must be Ihe demise of-men such ns
he, the ancient flaw of hubris, roughly
translated as excessive pride, but conjuring
up meanings far more profound.
Anwar El Sadnl believed in Egypt and in
the Egyptian. He believed that through
education and governmental assistance,
the poverty which had been Egypt for so
many years, poverty of wealth, of education, of self-image could be stemmed, returning Egypt if not to the glory of the
Pharaohs and Alexander, at least to the role
as the legitimate leader of the Arab World.
All this and more was the dream of Anwar
El Sadat, a dream which he felt would
. become a reality.
Yet, we must never forget that Anwar El
Sadat was a dictator, a tyrant. As such,
p benevolent or not, Sadat ran the risk of losing touch with the true feelings of his people because of his'clectoral aloofness. His
| peace wjth Israel, condemned by the Arab
World, was accepted by his people. His
continual battle with the mad Colonel of
Libya, condemned by the rest of the Arab
World, was accepted by his people. His expulsion of any Soviet influence and the
growth of American aid and assistance, a
maneuver of extraordinary statescraft,
was accepted by his people. However, his
recent restrictions of the basic human rights
of Egyptians was not accepted by anyone,
least of all his people.
It is because of these recent huhric
measures that it becomes necessary to
report his assassination. Sic semper lyrunnus.
The recent crack-down on all political
opponents of President Sadat reminded the
world that the man who hud accepted Ihe
olive branch from Meimclicni Begin was an
absoRttc dictator also capable of cracking
the whip. The harsh and unwai ranted arrest
of political and religious leaders, as well as
Ihe resliielions Of polillctll and religious
riglns was unacceptable lo the people ol
Anwar El Sadal, Ihe true Agamcmnonlan
tragic figure, forgot to take Into consldera
linn liis own political mortality. As a ruler,
Sadat had ihe dual responsibility to Improve the stale "l lii-. nullon, as well as be
responsive to the voice of his constituents,
to protect their basic freedoms, for progress
at the expense of freedom Is not progress at
all. Once Ihe government of a Slate infringes on the rights of its cili/.enry, the people have the right lo revolt, for basic human
rights arc inalienable. State before citizen is
as familiar a' doclrine as the people who
practiced it, most memorably Adolf Hitler
and Josef Stalin.
Anwar El Sudat was a leader who professed to have the greatest faith in his .people, yet his faith did nol permeate deep
enough for him to allow free elections, n
free press, opposition parties, or religious
factionalism. His faith was in a monolithic
Egypt which existed only in the chambers of
his mind.
Americans liked Anwar El Sadal. A man
of tremendous political savoir-faire, Sadal
was elcvalcd lo the role of diplomatic
super-star after his firsl visit to Jerusalem, a
role previously monopolized by Henry Kissinger, His fortitude in wilhstanding the
threats of the Arab World (mosl notably his
loss of Saudi Arabian financial assistance,
and the death threats of Libya) created a
sort of mystique around Sadat. He was portrayed in the American Press as having
spunk. Americans liked Sadat because of
his adherence to his principles in the face of
great opposition, and threats to his political
and corporeal life. Anwar El Sadat would
not knuckle under to pressure.
And yet it was not from outside that his
murder was accomplished, but by angry
Egyptians from whom basic freedoms had
been first denied arid then usurped. Had
Sadat survived, this would most certainly
have been the crudest cut of all.
Jimmy Carter has lost a friend, Egypt has
lost a leader. Lei it nol be said that Anwar
El Sadal did not have the interests of the
Egyptian people at heart when he instituted
harsh and repressive measures, for he was
nol a man obsessed with personal power.
He was a muirwith a vision for a better
Egypt, lor a peaceful Middle Eosi and,
Ironically, for basic human rights for
Palestinians, Perhaps il is lilting that his
death wus a factor of human rights, not
fighting foi them, but repression of them.
His death is a loss lo Egypt and Ihe
world. Il is a loss, however, which is
tempered by the knowledge thai Sadat was
indeed a tyrant.
Had only Sadal had mure faith in his
people, his people might have had greater
faith in him, and logclhei they could have
built a bettci Egypti a stable region, and a
bctlei world,

An Educated Guess
What is law? More importantly, how is it interpreted? This question gets
tossed around from town courts to state courts and from state courts to federal
courts. It's been debated everywhere, from your law course to the Supreme
Court. The answers to these questions lie nol in law texts or in the "College
Knowledge" on the back of your milk containter, but rather in interpretation.
And while it's good lo comply with the law it sometimes leaves us wondering.
We look for reasons. Why is one law interpreted this way and not that way?
Whom docs il help? Whom docs il hurl?
Today's question is prc-auditing. The law is this: All state money must be
audited through the comptroller's office. The interpretation by the state is
this: Grants and loans fall under the classification of slate money.
Whom does il help? Whom docs il hurl? The answer to Ihe first question is
Ihe stale. Therefore, through,cducaied guessing, you can probably figure out
whal the answer to Ihe second question is. We lose out from prc-auditing
because il delays our receiving the money that we obviously need al Ihe beginning of each semester. Rem must be paid, food must be bought, and eventually,
books must be purchased. Prc-auditing puis u kink in our cash flow.
The slate predicts delays of only " a couple of d a y s . "
Facl One: Pre-audiling will not be handled by computers but by hand.
Fact Two: The comptroller's office docs nol plan to hire any new " h a n d s . "
Facl Three: Even now during pre-audil simulation many SUNY students arc
experiencing lengthy delays.
Therefore, by Ihe process of educated guessing wc venture to say thai this
may delay checks for almost " a couple of m o n t h s . "
So Ihe cost and the burden of hiring a pre-audit staff now fall on Ihe university. The money for this, which the university docs nol have, must come from
somewhere. The question is where? Student services — another educated
Wc believe the stale should reinterpret llieir law. Is money received through
loans and grants stale money? Isn't il the students who must use the grants lo
pay for school and must also use loans — which they will eventually have to
pay back — for the same purpose?
We agree with Ihe occasional prc-auditing of money thai will be refunded lo
students after it's been paid to the slice. However, prc-auditing these other
money outlets seems unnecessary. It is just a waste of lime.

by Marc Hammond
The Albany State baseball team
slugged its way through a whirlwind
week of doubleheuders, coming up
with a 2-3-1 record against
SUNYAC teams. And they're not
done yet.
On Saturday, October 10,
Albany played host to Binghamton
on what Albany coach Vincc
Carncvale termed the "darkest day
of the fall season." Binghamton's
Dan Tawkins no-hit the Danes 2-0
in the first game, while pounding
out a triple and solo homer for his
own cause. The second game saw
Binghamton flex its offensive muscle as they crushed Albany 17-9.

Then on Monday, visiting Cortland was greeted with a 13-0
shellacking as junior Mike Gartman
reeled off a smooth three-hitter .in
the first game. The second game
was called in the seventh inning on
account of darkness with the score
tied at 11-11. Dane Bobby Conklin's bat came alive as he lashed
out two singles, a double and a tworun homer to ensure a tie.
Oswego was the battleground on
Wednesday as hard-luck hurler
Ralph Volk, whom Carneyale considers, "my best pitcher, without a
doubt," dropped the first game 3-2.
Volk was the victim of Binghamton's 2-0 shutout on Saturday.
Albany capitalized on Oswego's
error-ridden play in the nightcap
and dumped them 8-4.
"They didn't play well," commented Carncvale. "They kind of
gave us the game."

The women's tennis team faced a
formidable Binghamton squad and
t'ould not muster the upsets to overtake their opponents. The Danes
dropped the match 6-2 and their
record to 3-3.
"Binghamton was basically a
stronger team. We were also missing two key players, Cari Solomon
and Karen O'Connor," said coach
Peggy Mann.
Number one seed, Nancy Light
started Albany on the right track as
she defeated her cross net opponent, 6-4,6-2. Light played a basic
game, keeping the ball in play and
making very few errors.
The score was evened at one as
Joan Phillips proved not to be a
match for Binghamton's Leslie
Ferguson. "Joan made too many
errors and was not able to keep her
lobs in while using a newly strung
racket," evaluated Mann.
Albany's third ranked player
Pain Duchln, gave the Danes the
lead for the final time of the afternoon, defeating Bonnie Koppclman, 7-5,6-1. Duchin had a slow
start, but pulled her game together
late in the first set and became even
stronger in the final set.
There were not many highlights
in singles' competition as Danes
Elisc Solomon, Lauren Isaacs, and
Sandra Borrelle all lost their matches. The score stood at 4-0 in favor
of the home team, Binghamton and
the Danes would have to take all the
doubles' events to win the match.
The Danes' hopes were dashed as
Light and Phillips dropped their
match, 6-7,(7-5),6-3,1-6. The
Albany duo was ahead 4-2 in the'
, first set before Binghamton took
advantage of some Dane errors.
"The girls played an unusual 'i'
formation which initially psyched
out Binghamton, but eventually
made too many errors to win,"
stated the coach.
Duchin and Borrelle dropped
their match, 4-6,1-6, and Isaacs and
Solomon were unable to complete
their doubles games which was even
at one set apiece, due to darkness.
The team will travel to Union
College tomorrow and then to
Oneonta on Monday. "We are starting to get our games together and
we will beat Union and Oneonta,"
added Mann.

Bad Luck Booters Search for Some Answers
State University of New York at Albany
by Marc Haspel
How do you explain it7 A team
seemingly full of good talent that
just can't get the lucky breaks. A
team set back so many times this
fall by misfortune. A team whose
preseason prospects were once so
rosy but now have all but faded.
How do you explain that? According to men's varsity soccer coach
Bill Schlieffelln it's just been one of
those years.
The booters suffered another loss
on Wednesday at University Field half the Danes played the 7-1-3 Bears. Schlieffelln described the against Union in very rainy condiagainst a very tough Keene State Owls very evenly. But problems Bears as perhaps the "worst team" tions the Danes played to their only

The rest of the way in the : st but these guys are pretty good."

we're not taking."
Albany opened the second half
with some good set ups as they
threatened a few times early. Ferero
passed the ball to Afrim Nezaj,
whose strong kick just missed the
net. Ne/aj also teamed up with
junior Paul Aspland but their efforts came up short and Ihc Danes
remained scoreless.

Senate Tuition Tax Credit Bill Pending
phnlo! UPS
Financial Aids Director WliHIock
"77ie program « . . . not efficient"
by Susan Mllligan
and Frank Gil
A bill under consideration by the
U.S. Senate might help financing
for those who can already afford
college, but the Reagan administration's cuts in education aid make
the proposal irrelevant to lowerincome students, according to
SUNYA Financial Aids Director
Pending in the Senate Finance
Committee is a bill sponsored by
Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-N.Y.)
and Bob Packwood (R-Ore.) that
would allow a tax credit to offset
tuition costs of private elementary
and secondary schools as well as of
colleges, Moynihan staffer Jim
Moors said.
The policy would allow for the
deduction of up to $250 per year of
taxes owed although the credit may
not exceed one half of tuition costs,
Moors explained.
Moynihan's office estimates the
cost of the proposal, if fully instituted, to be $2.7 billion the first
year, fiscal 1983, and upwards of $6
billion by 1985.
with such proposals.
A special group of federal officers from Five agencies, including
the Departments of Education and
Treasury, has been established to
study the proposal's "feasibility
and specifics."
to education aid based on income,
such as Pell Grants.
But Moors said there is "no connection whatsoever" between the
Moynihan-Packwood bill and the
current and pending aid cuts.
Whitlock is opposed to such proposals.
Paradoxically, the Reagan administration — although trying to
reduce federal spending and subsidies — is expected to support the
proposal. Assistant Treasury
Secretary for tax policy John E.
Chapoton testified before a Senate
Committee that the Reagan administration docs support tax
credits for tuition, and said its cost
was "probably the most significant
matter" being considered by Administration members concerned
"The tuition tax credits will help
the wealthy subsidize private
schools for their children,"
Whitlock said. "Also, the middle
class will seek this as an opportunity
to grab a price of the pie . . . both
at the expense of the poor."
Moors explained that the bill was
introduced during the Carter administration and said " the cuts that
have been enacted would have occurred regardless of whether the
tax credit bill was passed." He
noted that Moynihan voted against
the education cuts.
Whitlock stated in addition that
the program "is not an efficient
way to provide educational
benefits. Students don't receive
money when it's needed at the
beginning of the semester, but at
the end,"
Many higher education institutions are concerned that the bill if
passed/ would justify in Congress a

OCA Director Dunlea Questioned
by Judie Elsenberg
Questions concerning the relationship between Mark Dunlea's
roles as SA's Off-Campus Association (OCA) Director and New York
State Citizen's Party Co-Chair, as
well as his reported use of SA
resources to engage in political activities, have been raised as the
result of an article recently printed
in the Schnectady Gazette.
In Ihe October 16 issue, Gazette
reporter Phil Blanchard reported
that SUNYA administrators were
currently investigating Dunlea's activities to determine whether they
were in violation of state regulations.
Specifically, the SUNY Board of
Trustees mandate that student activity fees may be . used in,
"Assistance to recognized student
organizations, provided that the
purpose and aciivitcs of the
organization are of educational,
cultural, recreational or social
nature," thereby implying fees
should nol be used in support of
political panics.
However, Dean of Sn lent Affairs Neil Hiown said no lu trial investigation in respect 10 ilii-. issue is
now underway.
According to Student Activities
Director Jim Dollefeld, "We're
basically in ihe information gather-
ing siage. At this point in lime we
have no evidence that Dunlea is
engaging in any inappropriate activity."
The Schnectady Gazette article
was based on a Citizen's Party
leaflet whlch>>gave Dunlea's name
and the OCA phone number for
further information, according lo
SA Vice-President Woody Popper.
Popper noted it is SA's responsibility to determine if action is
Bui he added, "Wc don't have
reason to believe thai Mark
(Dunlea) is using OCA funds lo
support the Citizen's Parly."
"As far as resources are concerned," Popper continued, "he's ad- .
mined to using the phone. I don't
think there's anything particularly
wrong with his receiving calls on a
once in awhile basis."
If Dunlea received phone calls to
a degree dial hampered his ability
to do his job, it would be wrong,
Popper said. But, al ibis point Popper doesn't perceive il to be a problem.
Dunlea said the only relationship
between OCA and the Citizen's

Resignations Leave
New Paltz SA in Doubt
by Fcllciu Bcrgcr
All Ihe officers of Ihe SUNY College at New Paltz Student Association (SA) have resigned over academic and personal concerns, accor
ding to their SA Manager Nadine Spies.
Presently the only SA officer left is President Brenda Lewis, whose
resignation will become effective with Ihe election of a new SA president this week.
New Paltz students will vole for new government officers, as well as
for revisions made on their SA constitution, said Spies.
The revisions, written by an ad hoc student assembly, create a student senate to represent the needs and concerns of Ihe student body.
This senate is to be separate from the already existing Student Council, which is made up of SA'member organizations and concerns itself
primarily witli monetary matters.
"I'm not too worried," Dunlea

Police Ponder Pine Hills Assault
by Susan Smith
A recent sexual abuse incident occuring in the Pine Hills area has
reopened the case of the Pine Hills
Molester, according to Albany
Police Captain John Dale.
On Monday, October 12, at 4:45
a.m., an assailant broke a window
and entered the Willct St. apartment of a 34-year-old Albany
woman. Dale said the assailant,
described as a black male between
17 and 20 years of age, "went to the
woman's bed . . . and knell down
on one knee at the foot of her bed.
He then put his hand under the
covers and was reaching to touch
her when she screamed." Dale said
the suspect then fled.
The suspect was described as
5'8", 140 lbs. and wearing blue
jeans, a sweat shirt, and sneakers.
The woman said she was able to see
the attacker because her apartment
was lit.
"We just don't know if it is the
same guy," said Dale, referring to
the Pine Hills Molester.
A rash of incidents involving the
molester look place over a year ago
in the Pine Hills area where many
students live. In those cases the
assailant slipped through unlocked
doors or windows into apartments
occupied by young females. The intruders fondled the women and fled
when they screamed.
"There arc similarities and differences between this crime and the
approximately 40 reports of the
past molester," Dale said.
The similiarities include the
physical make-up of the assailant
and the nature of the crime.
However, several differences
have lead Albany police to believe
the Willct St. attack may be an
isolated incident. The intruder in
this ease was described as having a
light compaction and freckles,
while Ihe Pine Hills Molcslcr was
believed lo havew a darker complcciion and no freckles.
Further, while the latest assailant
broke a window to enter the apartment, the Molester did not force entry.
Another difference is that women
attacked by the Pine Hills Molester
were somewhat younger than the
Willet St. victim.
Dale refused to comment on
whether Albany "Police would increase patrol cars in the Pine Hills
