Danes Catch Norwich Napp-ing in 7-0 Triumph
45-YardTDPass Play With
0:25 Remaining Breaks Tie
by Larry Kahri
For 39 minutes on Saturday
Albany and Norwich battled to a
scoreless tie. Both teams struggled
throughout the very physical contest, although Norwich dominated
the line of scrimmage. Five limes in
those 59 minutes the Cadets drove
inside the Albany 20 yard line, five
times they failed to score. Three
fumbles and two missed field goals
kept the Cadets off the scoreboard.
So much can happen in one
minute..
Booter Afrim Nezaj Chosen
Second by Stallions of MISL
Afrim Nezaj, a four year starter on the Albany Slate soccer team,
was selected by the Buffalo Stallions in the second round of the Major
Indoor Soccer League (MISL) annual amateur draft. Nc«ij was the
21st player selected in the draft, held this weekend in Kansas C'ily.
"He's a line, skillful player who is strong and very mature," said
Stallion head coach Ray Klivccka. "He is versatile, hut I l.nlcnd i<> use
him primarily at forward."
"I'm really excited for hitn," said Albany soccer coach Bill Scliief
felin.
"It's something he has really
hoped to do all his life."
Nezaj has been a standout player
on a team lhal has been n playoff
contender every year, with the exception of this year. Albany plays a WQ
vcw difficult schedule, but Nc/nj
has excelled against the quality
competition. He was the leadings

The second request was two-fold.
The petitioners first wanted the
Third District of Ward 15, which
encompasses the majority of the
campus, to be divided into two
districts, in accordance to the Election Law of the State of New York.
This law, said Stokcm, requires
realignment of districts in which the
total number of registered voters
exceeds 1,000.
The Third District contains between 1,600 and 1,800 voters.
The second part of the request

on Western Avenue for the 600
registered voters in the surrounding
community. Presently, all Third
District voters would be voting at
St. Margaret Mary's.
Stokem said, "The Board of

not to. I think they want a situation

Urges students to vole early

On Tuesday, November 3,
chartered buses will run every half
hour from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at an
approximate cost of $250 to SA, according to SA Vice President
Woody Popper.
The tentative schedule calls for
the buses lo leave the University
Gym at 10 minutes after the hour
and 20 minutes before; lo leave the
Humanities Building slop 20
minutes after and 10 before; and to
leave Ihe Academic Circle on the
hour and on the half hour. Popper
said.
Central Council Chair John
Suydam added that additional
buses will be run during peak hours,
although those hours have not yet
been determined.
However, Popper cautions, "If

Popper expects students to be
challenged by election inspectors as
to whether they are eligible to vote,

To counter these difficulties,
Popper urges students to get out lo
vote as early as possible in order to

community and students will get
mad at each other."
The majority of registration problems concern Indian Quad, which
is located entirely in Guildcrland,
and Dutch Quad, in which Beverwyck Hall, and parts of Van Cortlandt and Schuyler Halls lie In
Guildcrland.
However, the Board registered
.almost-all Dutch Quad students to
vote in Guildcrland, regardless of
dorm, said Stokem.
Stokem noted that about 45
students who registered are not included on either the Albany or
Guildcrland list of voters. He said
some of the problems are due to incorrect address procedures. "Some
put their box number. . .instead of;
the street address, 1400 Washington
Ave.," he explained.
Stokem also noted that of the
two Board commissioners,
Republican George P. Scaringe "is
supporting the effort to place a
voting machine on campus. . .Ray
Kinley, the Democrat is against it,
so the issue is dying in a stalement."
He added that, "Mayor Corning
as County Democratic Chairman
has a tremendous amount of influence over Kinlcy's decision, and
Ihe Mayor doesn't want many
students voting."
"The students joining in the action are not supporting any political
campaign," Stokem said.
Co-petitioner of the suit, Jeff Frromm, a Dutch Quad resident, said,
"I am not indicating in any way
that I support his (Stokem's) campaign; 1 am merely showing that I
am interested in upholding
students' rights."
Another of the student petitioners, Theresa Knorr complained
that she "could have voted back
home, but I wanted to vote in
Albany. Instead" it got screwed up
and I wound up being registered in
Guildcrland." .
She added that,"Being an Albany
student, my concerns are in
Albany. . .1 don't know anybody
in Guildcrland and it would just be
a wasted vote."
Stokem advised that "anyone
who received notification to vote in
Guilderland. . .or who never
received notification can call the
Board of Elections."
The judge presiding over the case
said his decision will be announced
today.
Scaringe and Kinley, the commissioners of the Board of Elections
and co-defendants in the suit could
not be reached for comment.
Wastes Spur Concern in Canada

Large amounts of toxic wastes

Set for mid-November, the conference will focus on seeking a comprehensive drinking water policy in

Senate Approves AWACS
Woald CApsuUs
WASHINGTON, D . C . (AP) President Reagan, ex
ulting in a victory that even his opponents called
awesome, says the"causc of peace is on the march again
in the Middle East'" with Senate approval of his
AWACS arms sale to Saudi Arabia.
With his first major foreign policy lest behind him,
Reagan said only a radical takeover in the Mideast now
could thwart delivery of the Airborne Warning and
Control System planes, the-world's most advanced, in
1985. The $8.5 billion sale is the largest arms deal io a
foreign nation in U.S. history.
In the meantime, Reagan reaffirmed the United
States' "unshakable commitment" to Israel, which had
argued that the sale would threaten its security, as his
administration worked on compensating arms aid to the
Jewish state.
The Senate approved Ihc sale 52-48 Wednesday after
Reagan convened seven opponents and won over all
seven undecided senators in the final two days of an extraordinary lobbying blitz. It was a performance that
moved House Speaker Thomas P. O'Neill Jr. to say,
"He is showing awesome power."
OPEC Increase, Again
GENEVA, Switzerland (AP) The Organization of
Petroleum Exporting Countries fixed its prices in a
range of $34 to $38 a barrel yesterday, Kuwaiti oil
Minister Ali Khalifa A! Sr.bah said. Analysts said this
could cost Americans about 2 1/2 cents more a, gallon
for gasoline and heating oil.
But Al-Sabah said OPEC also froze prices at the new
levels through the end of 1982. The oil cartel ministers,
in a rare one-day session, thus established a unified price
structure for the first time in more than two years.
There was no immediate announcement from tin
OPEC secretariat or Saudi Arabia, OPEC's biggest pro>
duccr and America's biggest supplier of imported oil.
Prices among OPEC's 13 members had varied fron
Saudi Arabia's low of $32 for a 42-gallon barrel tc
nearly $40 charged by Algeria. The oil ministers discussed the $34 price proposed by Saudi Arabia during
meetings in May and August, but Venezuela and other
refused to agree. So Saudi Arabia had kept its price at
$32.
-)
Although OPEC set a base price of $36 a barrel in
December 1980, prices charged by individual members
have varied ever since according to the market and other
considerations. The average price is now about $35.

United States is removing the two AWACS surveillance
aircraft sent to Egypt only two weeks ago, ii was

A Stale Department official, who asked not to be

always intended as a temporary measure."
Secretary of Stale Alexander M. Haig Jr. had said the
AWACS were sent lo Egypt for use in joint U.S.- Egyptian military exercises, known as Bright Star, which will
be held next month.
However, one U.S. official, who spoke only on the
condition that his name not be used, said Hnif
"misspoke."
The AWACS were sent to Egypl on Ocl. 14, and the
official said they clearly were intended as a show of support for Egypt following the assassination of Prcsiclcni

USSR Response to A WACS
MOSCOW, USSR (AP) The Sovicl news agency Tass

Women Meet to Plan Action
by Sylvia Saunders
Although the 60 students and
faculty members who attended the
Thursday Women's Meeting came
for different reasons, they had one
thing in common: concern about
the university's treatment of
women.
"We don't want to turn this into
a bitching session," explained
Moderator Jessica Casey of the
Campus Center Student Activities
Department. "We have lo harness
our energy lo get things moving."
Four women gave presentations
outlining the major issues: oncampus day care; the status of
minorities;'the hiring, promotion
and retention of women; and
women's safely and sexual harassment.
"The situation for minorities on
this campus is very grave because of
their numbers," according to Acting Affirmative Action Chair
Gloria DcSole. "And the situation
for women is just as. grave — not
because of numbers — but because
wherever we are, we tend to be
clustered on the bottom."
Student Barbara Goldstein spoke
on women's safety and sexual
harassment, pointing out the conneclion between the two issues since
both prey on women who arc
defenseless.
She said that more than a dozen
crimes against women have been
r e p o r t e d on c a m p u s since
Scplembcr 1. "I discovered, after
looking at the daily crime and inci

Mall Dispute Heats Up
by Marc Schwarz
Allegations of a cover-up and o
halted public hearing this week added to the controversy surrounding
the proposed Crossgates Mall.
On Wednesday night the mall's
developer, Pyramid Crossgates
Co., obtained a court order halting
the final hearing of Ihe Guildcrland
Zoning Board of Appeals. According to the Times-Union, the
developers obtained the order after
learning that a traffic engineering
report was critical of the mall. The
Times Union also reported the traffic report was later ordered
destroyed by the Zoning Board
resulting in great protest from the
mall's opponents.
The developers need approval
from the Zoning Board of Appeals
as well as the state Department ol
Transportation (DOT) before construction of ihc mall can begin.
Department of Environmental
Conservation (EnCon) hearings officer Daniel Ruzow said DOT permits will probably not be issued for
another five to eight months.
Concerned Citizens Against
Crossgates (CCAC) president
Rhonda Childs charged EnCon
and Pyramid Crossgates of "some
sort of coverup."
CCAC has filed a suit in Stale
Supreme Courl, challenging the
procedures used by EnCon in filing
the permits.
Specifically, she charged Commissioner Robert F. Flack with
"usurping the community's rights.
He did not comply with the rules set
up by EnCon governing the public
input process."
Childs claims CCAC never

developed arc effective for very small samples, including
cases in which only a handful of patients have died, and
a moderate number are still surviving.

of the environmental permits. On
October 5, EnCon issued the
developers all the required environmental permits, with the condition that the permits be valid
upon the approval of the project by
DOT and the Zoning
Board.
"We have been legally set up lo
be notified and it was only because
somebody tipped me off that I
found out about (the permit issuance). Essentially, a clock starts
ticking for us to legally stay the permits. The clock ran out the day
after we filed the suit," said Childs.
According to Childs, earlier in
the permit approval process, Administrative Law Judge William
Dickinson recommended denial of
the permits. "This is one of Ihe few
cases on record that an administrative law judge's recommendation has been overlooked, "
Childs said. "Obviously Commissioner Flack did not read 17,000
pages of testimony. I question what

day thatwe are safe."
She. said another problem is that
although SUNYA buses are supposed to stop at all corners after 6
p.m., not all busdrivers do. She also
expressed concern over the elimination of self-defense workshops due
to lack of attendance.
Lily McLaughlin of the Center
for Women in Government spoke
on the status of minorities on campus, noting a decline in the number
of minority instructors.
In addition, she said, there is an
extremely poor employment and
placement rate when il comes to
minorities.
Nancy Bdowich of the Student
Life and Rehabilitiation Services
departments reported on the
percentages of women and
minorities in university occupations.
"Of the 35 highest university administrators, there arc only three
women and one black person. . .
The numbers of women and
minorities among full-time faculty
members and non-teaching professionals decreased in nearly all ranks
between 1977 and 1980," she said.
"This is all very sad, considering
that at least 50 percent of students
are women on this campus," she
added.
The last speaker was Ellen FontincllL Vice President of the CSEA
Local Chapter 691, who described
her difficulty finding daycare for
her son when she went back to
work.
"1 called Pierce Hall (the only
university-affiliated daycare center)
and they told me I'd have to wait a
year and a half or till he's a
freshman in college. . . " she said.
"And that's when I realized we
need an on-campus daycare center
where we can put our children and
not worry."
She proposed the center should
be open from 7:30 a.m to 9 p m. in

"We need a daycare center open

"Something must be done on this
campus by mid-1982."
The women broke into planning
groups to discuss specific routes of
action and to schedule future
meetings. All were encouraged to
attend the President's Task Force
on Women's Safety meeting Nov. 5
at 11:45 a.m. in AD 253.
"They tell.us we haven't learned
how to play the game," Casey said.
"We still don't know the rules."
Problems With Tax Cards
Cast Doubts On Election
by Elizabeth Reich
Last week's Central Council elections may be invalidated since some
students, unable to obtain their tax cards, could not vote, according to
SA Vice-President Woody Popper.
Because they paid their bills or registered late, certain freshman and
transfer students did not receive their tax cards last month and were
consequently turned away from the polls last Wednesday, Thursday,
and Friday, a representative of the SA Contact Office said.
The SA Election Commission is to decide if enough people were affected to justify another election. SA Election Commissioner Peter
Wcinstock said that approximately S60 people voted and no candidate
has told him he or she felt the election was unfair.
Popper said "the number of phone calls and walk-ins who have
directly complained is small compared to the number of people who
have complained to R.A.'s."
Popper said anyone who did not have a tax card but paid the student
lax could have obtained a rcceipl from the Bursar's Office and voted.
If unresolved by the Election Commission, the case may appear
^before the SA Supreme Court.

Student Migration
to Public
Colleges is Seen
(CPS) Enrollments down slightly at
private Nebraska Wcslcyan, and up
slightly at public Kea; 'ley Slate College.
It's down six percent al private
Mars Hill College in North
Carolina. It's up six percent at
public Gaston College nearby. /
Situations like those, some
observers believe, could be the siarl
of something big: a massive student
migration from private colleges,
where avcrcge cost this year are
$6,800, to public campuses, where
costs average $3,800.
The migration wasn'tsupposedto
begin until next fall, when die pool
potential college students was due
to start drying up. But the new
restriction on and cuts in federal
student aid programs may have inspired more students than expected
to transfer this year.
I think the first effect (of the aid
cuts) will be an enrollment shift to
public colleges," predicts Dallas
Martin of the National Association
of Financial Aid Administrators,
He reasons that the fewer aid
dollars students can gel will go farther at less expensive schools,
"We should sec a major shift
(from private to public) next fall,
but 1 wouldn't be surprised if you
start to see some minor shifting this
fall," he said.
Preliminary enrollment figures]
do show most public colleges growing as private colleges struggle to
keep student populations stable. A
Chronicle of Higher Education
phone survey discovered all 22
public campuses it contacted had
enrollment jumps. A College Press
Service phone survey of private colleges found enrollment down on
most of those campuses.
However, not all administrators
attribute the enrollment swings to|
the aid cuts or to general shifting of
student populations from private to
public campuses,
Nevertheless, most of the private
colleges that have managed to keep
their enrollments steady this fall are
those that guarantee meeting 100
percent of their students' financial
needs.
At Nebraska Wesleyan, where
there is no financial guarantee,
Registrar Bctte Olson "assumes the
decline (in enrollment) will continue
next year," though she doesn't yet
have the statistical evidence to show
she'll be losing students to public
colleges.
She says a "small committee"
will meet soon to discuss ways of
stopping the decline, perhaps by
guaranteeing aid.

function without alcohol' was

"Students feel the rule is really
silly," said Charles Galemmo, Vice
President of student government.
"I don't think it's reached its goal
— the whole thing has been exaggerated."
According to Hurly, the policy
has been effective in that "people
arc talking about it, they arc
becoming aware."
Hurly explained that Tuesday
was picked as "dry day" because it
is "just an ordinary day. Very few
social functions are planned on that
day and so nobody is really being
deprived."
Hurly said the rule applies to
faculty as well as students. "I have
heard a few complaints," he said.
"For example, there was one facuU
ty member who was holding a
meeting on a Tuesday, and wanted
to serve wine and cheese. We don't
bend the rules for anyone."
Oalemmo claims that students
had very little say in the decision.
"The whole issue of student rights
in school government comes into
play." .
"I can't accept that" countered
Hurly, "The rule originated last
year from a vandalism task force
comprised of students and faculty. I
was chairman of that committee
and spent many hours discussing
the policy with students."
Hurly further explained that
alcohol is still allowed to be brought
into the dorms and if someone really want to drink he or she can still
find alcohol off campus-.

Alderman Candidates
Wardfr
Nancy Burton
Serving as Ward 6 Alderman for the past
four years, Nancy Burton is seeking reelection on the Democratic, Republican and
Liberal ticket.
Burton, the only woman on Albany's
Common Council, also.has the endorsement or the Black and Political Caucus, the
Cay Caucus, and the New Democratic
Coalition.
Commenting on issues facing Albany
residents, Burton said, "I supported the
security ordinance and am against the antigrouper law."
Burton usually votes in opposition to the
council, she claims, saying that "on Ihc
rugby match I was one of two Aldermen
who took a stand on the matter at all. Wc
felt we didn't have to have the game:"
Burton also says she voted no to the last'
three city budgets, and.is opposed to the
development of:the Pine Bush for ihc proposed Crossgates shopping mall.
When asked how she thought student
voting would affect the election, Burton
said, "Frankly, 1 don't know. There's a difference between gelling people lo register
and gelling them lo ihe polls."
Burton is currently Ihc Budget Examiner
for New York Slate, president of her
neighborhood association, and serves on
ihc Capitol Hill Improvement Company
Board.
She will, however, be resigning from Ihc
board, because of a "conflict of inlcrcsl in
ihelr receiving government funds."
Burton, who is 30 years old, is a Phi Beta
Kappa graduate from Syracuse University,
receiving an undergraduate degree in
Sociology.

Michael Ireland
Michael Ireland thinks that his party —
the Citizens Party — has a pretty good
chance of winning some of the seats open
on the Albany Common Council November
3. He's just not too sure if he'll win the
Alderman scat in Word 6.
"We don't have a lot of hope for winning
all four races. We do have a good chance tu
win in (Judith) Enck's and (Robert)
Cohen's wards, though."
Ireland makes himself very clear when
comparing himself lo Nancy Burton, whom
he considers his strongest opponent. "I'm
further left than she is — she's a liberal, I'm
a progressive."
Ireland stresses that he is a parly man;
that is, he would reliably vote the Citizens
Party line. "We do expect party people lo
vote the party line. We're philosophically
committed to a position, and we'll stand by
it. We're trying lo inject some consumerism
into the race."
His campaign is oriented toward low and
middle income people in Ward 6, he says.
He speaks adamantly against what he
calls gentrification of neighborhoods.
"They think when a neighborhood is dressed up, it attracts a 'better' people — higher
income professionals — forcing out lower
income people. They're saying 'to hell with
the people who live here now,' and I think
that's wrong. There must be a way to make
downtown neighborhoods viable without
kicking out lower income people."
He opposes the way federal Community
Development block grant money Is being
spent. His claim is that less than 40 percent
of the money is going lo housing, while the
rest goes to businesses building or expanding downtown as well as into street and
sidewalk repair. "I don't think money
that's supposed to go to housing should go
to sidewalks and streets," he says.
Ireland says the anti-grouper laws have

Tom Burch
The 12-year Incumbent Ward 10 Alderman, Thomas Burch, is running against two
people he views as "total strangers to
Albany."
He has refused lo participate in a community forum with one of these,
"strangers", Judith Enck, because he.feels!
"there are no issue? in this campaign,"
He says he should be reelected, ". . .on:
my experience and background In the Ward
after-12 years."
Burch's accomplishments-! as Alderman
include Ihc B'nai B'rilh high rise aparlmcnl
complex on Hudson Avenue, Mini-medical
Center, on Madison Avenue, Ihc. purchase
of Ridgcficld Park, Ihe play area at
Madison and Ontario ard authorizing antipornography legislation.
Burch feels he knows Ihc people of Ihc
ward and thai he is always available lo
Ihcm, for any problems or concerns. He added, ."I ihink the. people in the ward like
me."
He sccs.no need for a security ordinance
in Albany, stating, "Lock and boll security
should suffice. If Ihc people need Ihcm, lei
Ihcm put locks on their doors themselves
and use them."
Also, he doesn't view the possibility of
public power.as an issue in his campaign
because "it would be impossible lo keep it
(public power) running, .and Niagara
Mohawk would eventually ..take over
anyway."
,
II is difficult for Burch lo estimate Ihe
impact that the student vole will have in this
election. He explained that many of Ihc
students that he spoke lo in his ward said
they would be voting in their home towns
by absentee ballot. But, he said, "if all the
students who are registered lo vole'in
Albany get oul lo Ihe polls, I here could be a
visible effect on the elections."
On the issue of low-income housing,
Burch commented, "there has always been
a need" for this but, he pointed out, "there
is not that kind of land available in Ward
10, and Federal monies would not be used
for this."

She also thinks "the student vote will

adding that she feels students will make an
"Informed choice."
— Lisa Mlrabella
Paul Silverstein'
"I consider myself the only responsible
candidate," says Paul Silverstein,
Republican/Independant candidate for
Ward 10 Alderman.
He feels Ihc anti-grouper law, security ordinance, and rent control issues stem from
Ihe fact that there is a great demand for the
little housing there is in the city of Albany.
This situation implies, he says, that "high
rents can be dictated."
He feels rent can be stabilized by stabilizing taxes. One way in which this can be
done Is through cily investments. "In the
first nine months of this year Schenectady
made approximately $30,000 and Troy, approximately $230,000. Albany didn't make
a dime,'! he said.
Further, Silverstein believes utility rale
hikes arc excessive. As an example, he
points oul Quackcnbush, which is currently
being used as an office for Ihe water department.
"No one goes there," Silverstein says.
"It's almost as If Corning look it as a toy
and Ihc Common Council went along with
il and spent thai money."
In response lo Ihe recent Springboks controversy, Silverstein said, :'I think the
South African government has every right
lo prcscnl Ihelr views. I don't Ihink Ihe
rugby team represented Ihc South African
views. I don't think Albany should have
had lo spend $45,000 on security. The game
shouldn't have been, played on public properly al public expense."
Silverstein thinks students should have
gotten voting rights long ago, and hopes for
200 voles out of Ihe 2S0 registered student
voters who live in his Ward.
,. "Albany is a nice place. It could be
nicer," says Silverstein. "What's holding il
back is 40 years of the same administration."

Jerry Jennings
The Democratic candidate for Alderman
in the I lth ward, Jerry Jennings, Is now
completing his first year as alderman after
being elected to the position when it was
vacated last November.
The 33-year-old SUNYA graduate and
Albany High Vice-Principal is pleased that
students are finally getting a voice in local
politics. "Sometimes students are grouped
unfairly into stereotypes," said Jennings.
"In dealing with students I have found
them quite responsive, and have found ihai
they have many constructive ideas."
Jennings recognizes the problem of
residential safety in his neighborhood, bin
feels that the proposed Security Ordinance
is not necessarily Ihe bcsl answer. The proposed ordinance calls upon landlords lo improve ihc safely and security of their properly. "Primarily," said Jennings, "the

Gene Damm
The liberal candidate for the I3th Ward
Is GcneDainm, who is against Ihc antigrouper law.
He strongly holds thai this "law needs lo
be changed because il discriminates against
Ihe non-traditional family. The number of
people in an apartment is arbitrary."
He feels "landlords arc using this law as a
weapon against their student tenants. They
arc gouging students with this regulation, If
students complain about the lack of adequate service, the landlords threaten, and
do, turn those students in who have more
than three in their flat."
As a member of Ihe United Tenants of
Albany, Damm has been lobbying for rent
regulations in Albany. The United Tenants
is the principal tenant committee in the cily
of Albany.
An alumnus of SUNYA and a pan-lime
graduate sludent, Damm feels he can represent sludent interest in areas where il concerns them. This includes ihc anti-grouper
law, rent conlrol, voting rights and especially Ihc enforcemenl of the housing standards, he said.
Damm feels very positive about the new
studeni voting rights, noting "if students in

Damm wants it known that he is "a

However, when il comes lo the anli-grotiper

We think that amidst all the rhetoric of the upcoming mayoral election, probably the most
Important Issue of all Is being forgotten. Granted, that a young upstart has been battling a
decades-old political machine Is certainly newsworthy. The anti-grouper law Is o.k., too, we

sport, and you can get hurt very easily, and really what's the use?
But we have to pause to wonder why no one Is up In arms about what Is definitely the
most annoying of many annoyances In this burgh — that is, alternate side of the street parking. Twice a week, back to back, every week, available parking space downtown gets halved so the city of Albany can clean Its streets. Which means as evening falls a mad scramble
begins for the twenty or so parking spaces In the student ghetto. All this so Albany can boast
sparkling clean streets.
How clean do we want our streets to be? That Is the question you should be asking
yourself when you go to the polls on Tuesday. Is a shiny street a good trade-off for a midnight stroll from Delmar? We think not, and think you should think not also.
On Tuesday, think not.

an hour and a half from the east end of

retarded and stricken with cerebral palsy,
but she smiled a lot.
Her mother, who has the same curly

And as Tina slept in her own sheltered,
unchanging world, she remained oblivious
to the fact that the world In which she had
not lived had changed a great deal. There
had been a great oulcry about Wlllowbrook

many doctors who had decided that

Images
of Women
Art: Motherhood and Seduction
T
hat the name Artemesia Gentlleschl means nothing to most comes as no surprise
to Roberta Bernstein, an assistant professor of art at SUNYA who Is studying
women both as participants In and subjects of painting since the Renaissance.
Gentlleschl was a glanl of the Baroque era and was possibly the greatest of all women artists. The most mild praise for her work would be "revolutionary."
Literature, Art and the Stereotype
Bernstein, who taught at Barnard and Columbia before coming to SUNYA, reveals that
the obscurity of artists like Gentlleschl Is a result of sex stereotyping that has trapped women
In a limited number of roles — limited to two, in fact, according to the professor. "The
history of art treats woman either as mothers or as sex objects," says Bernstein, explaining
that the portrayal of women as the contented madonna or ravished virgin reflected and
reinforced the anxieties of a predominantly male art world.
The madonna Image of course dates back nearly two mlllenla, but even when approaching motherhood In a non-secular lashlon, males have tended to deify the woman as
she cares for the child and the home. When faced by growing activism among women, the
situation only grew worse: a "conservative backlash," says Bernstein, "was a matter of
course." She cites Ihe reactionary artistic climate of France after the revolution as an example.
Bernstein has chosen in her studies to focus not on those negative Images, but rather on
the positive responses created by female artists, especially Mary Cassatt, Paula ModersohnBecker and Kathe Kollwltz.
Cassatt is probably the most famous of all women artists, though her reputation is based
as much on her friendships with other French Impressionists as It Is on her own skill.
Cassatt's paintings seem as subtle yet direct confrontations of the themes men were exploiting. Bernstein feels Cassatt's paintings of mothers and children reveal a closeness and
Intimacy that Is uniquely female. "Cassatt shows motherhood In a meaningful and significant way," Bernstein says.
Yet Cassatt's paintings never give the impression that the everyday life was exalted In
anyway. In the melancholy faces of many of her subjects Is seen the drudgery of routine.
Bernstein says Cassatt showed Ihe different sides of domestic life In a way no man ever
could.
In spite of that, or more likely because of that, Cassatt's reputation was tarnished until
recently. Critics labeled her a limited artist who paled next to other Impressionists — Degas
and the like. Bernstein says that is representative of Ihe paradox of women In art. While Ihe
woman was often put on a pedestal, she says, in men's eyes the role women play was a
degrading one. Thus, when women treated those very subjects, Ihelr work was relegated to
Ihe ranks of the trivial or minor.

hough It Is ten years since she first studied children's literature and sex stereotypes.
Carol A n n Modena finds that children's books still bear "a very traditional
message." A former pre-school teacher and college professor, Modena Is revealing Ihe findings of her latest research of sex role portrayal at two lectures offered by the
Capital District Humanities Program.
The study grew from Modena's graduate work In elementary education and from her
avid Interest In women's activism. Since "children's books are reflective of culture," Modena
found them a highly appropriate springboard for studying sex stereotyping In general.
The research consisted of methodically sampling children's books (most considered high
quality by experts), and consulting various reference sources such as Hornbook magazine
and The School Library Journal.
Modena focused primarily upon characterization, specifically Ihe role portrayal of males
and females. Her conclusion was one of discouragement; she found that Ihe traditional
stereotypical role portrayal emphasized In children's literature was "nol reflective of reality."
There exists a vast under-representatlon of women In children's books: 75 percent of all
characters depicted in her sampling were male. Only two of some seventy une stories were
entirely without males.
Of the female characters portrayed, most appear In passive roles, while males constituted
76 percent of all occupational roles. And concerning themes, 82 percent of the ones Involving adventure, exploration. Imaginative play or physical activity were reserved for male protagonists.
I
Women always seem to participate as observers, says Modena. Millions of Cats lealures a
little old woman who stays safely at home while her little old husband goes out In search of a
kitten. One Morning In Maine has a father and son going to town while the mother stays
home fixing lunch.
Modena also analyzed occupations In the children's books, and found equally discouraging results. In numbers alone, males far outnumbered women In the work force — 71 to 19.
And Ihe nature of ihose occupations was disturbing: Men were purlrayed in all walks, incudlng lumberjacks, custodians, cowboys and mayors. Girls were relegated to positions as
prlnc«»»e$, sales clerks, and mothers.
Men wuiu purtrayed as fathers, but had occupations as well. Women were given few op" " M M . 7 " ' " ' l h e " , o l o s n s m o t o r s and daughters.

The flip-side of that violence Is expressed In paintings that show what Bernstein calls "the
fear in men of what women can do to them." A n example Is the popular Biblical subjects
Judith and Holoferness, In which the Hebrew woman cuts off the head of the Philistine
General. As in the stories of Samson and Delilah, and Salome and St. John the Baptist,
castration Images abound in a context of seductress turning the tables on the man.
Again, Bernstein turns to the more positive aspects of these Images, and most Importantly to the work of Artemesia Gentlleschl (1593-1653). The daughter of a respected artist,
Gentlleschl's paintings show the woman not as seductress, but rather as strong protagonist.
That she was raped by an art teacher as a young woman can only Intensify the reaction to
the paintings.
The anxiety towards women didn't disappear with the twentieth century, says Bernstein.
The image of the lemme fatale remained a popular one well Into the century.
Bernslcln will give two lectures discussing her studies In November as part of the Capital
Dlstrlcl Humanities Program's series on women In literature and art. Besides older artists,
she'll also be discussing contemporary artists who've approached feminist issues —
Suzanne Lacy, for instance, who's "Rage Is..." explores the modern Image of sexual aggression.
Bernstein says she will be hoping to make women more aware that there Is a body of
work by other women that Is now beginning to be known.
—Andrew Carroll
Literature: "The Right
To Fully Fail"
Sex objects, dominating wives, submissive wives, castrating bitches and evil mothers.
Do you recognize any of these types? You very well may; they represent the stereotypic
roles In which women are often portrayed In contemporary literature, according to Joan
Schulz of SUNYA's English Department. It Is rare that women are depicted as fully realized human beings, Schulz says.
In contrast, literature shows men "In all the ways humans can be. They do a lot more
things, move about In the world a whole lot more, take Initiative and seek self-realization."
It would be . preferable for female characters to achelve even fully failed lives Schulz
says, than to have them cast Into empty stereotypes.
Children's Lit: The Picture Is Cloudy
T
Bernstein has studied two artists of the last 100 years who have managed to transcend
the stereotypes. Paula Modersohn-Becker (1876-1907) was a German artist who portrayed
peasant life and created "striking" Images of nude mothers and their children. Her reputation arises out of the intensity In which she conveys the birth, death, and life of the family.
Kathe Kollwltz (1867-1945) drew the urban poor in much the same way as did
Modersohn-Becker the rural. She broke away from the stereotypes, says Bernstein, by
belying the myth of the happy mother. Her canvases show the anguish at losing a son (as
she did In the first World War) and the need for protecting and feeding the others. Her paintings are the antithesis of the traditional Image of the madonna.
Bernstein's discussion of women as sex subjects Is also one of paradox. On the one hand
is the Image of the reclining nude — "the stereotypical erotic fantasy of the submissive
female," says Bernstein. On the other hand are the Images of sexual violence, especially
those drawn from mythology and the Bible and favored by artists in the sixteenth century.
The loves of Jupiter, Ihe rage of Europa, Susannah and the Elders were treated with frequency, and In a way, says Bernstein, which displayed male sexual aggression, potency
fantasies and the propagation of the myth of woman as submissive victim.

Schulz's Interest In this field began In the early 1970's, when the feminist movement
started.
"I wanted to see what Intellectual connections there were (between the feminist movement) and my own work, which is literature." Schulz now teaches a course at SUNYA
concerning social roles In literature.
She discussed the ways in which
characteristic women's roles are treated In
f~ modern fiction, a topic she will also discuss
as part of the Capital District Humanities
| Program this month.
L
Ernest Hemingway's tale, "The Short,
Happy Life of Frances Macomber" is basically "a story about a bitch," she says.
Hemingway's female protagonist Is a
dominating wife who dies In the course of
the story. "Hemingway punishes her,"
Schulz Interprets.
Depletions such as this tend to "limit
women to thinking of themselves in certain
contained ways," and to discourage women
"from seeing themselves as full human beings with aspirations and goals," Schulz says.
Bui, she feels, the trend In modem fiction Is to try to explore sex roles and the options
of what women can do.
Contemporary women writers "are aware of past limitations and are trying to do
something about It."
Schulz also discussed Doris Lesslng's short story, "One Off The Short List," which she
feels raises the question of what kind of attitude towards sex and male manipulation a
liberated woman has.
The attitude that women can be described In terms of empty stereotypes, and that they
are limited as to what they can do in the world, Is not a belief generated by modern fiction.
Rather, says Schulz, "literature reinforces the attitudes of society and the status quo."
Further more, Schulz does not believe these attitudes can be changed primarily through
literature.
But literature might be able to start a move In the right direction, Schulz says, by
"showing wider roles in which women can see themselves."

Has The Novelty Worn Off?
A
lbany is home for several talented
rock bands struggling for survival.
.Albany's most promising group,
displaying growth outside the N-"-*"' area, Is
Blotto, who have a growing reputation In the
major Northeast cities, gaining considerable
airplay and generating audience Interest.
Ray Caligiure

T
J_ Blotto,
a five-member group, has been
playing local clubs since forming three years
ago, when they started out by rehearsing
covers of '50's songs. They have released a
couple of 12" EP's since and hope to record
an album soon. Their chief Inspiration comes
from Broadway Blotto, the band's principal
songwriter, whose witty parodies- have
become Blotto's trademark.
Blotto received its first outside recognition
with the release of " ( I Wanna Be A)
Lifeguard" off their first EP, which bannm.; .V
novelty hit (or the band, serving as a good Introduction to their tmooth pop style spiced
with satiric wit. Most of Blotto's songs are
written In parody form, meaning an Imitation
of a musical form or style, with lyrics that
Ironically undercut the significance of the
subject. Two examples of Blotto's parodies
are: "The Nowtones," a humorous poke at
the lounge bands they used to watch, and
he hilarious "Heavy Metal Head." which
has fun at the expense of that genre. The
band hopes to release this soon as a single.
"We were never really a heavy kind of
group," explained rhythm guitarist Bowtle In
a recent Interview. Bowtle noted Broadway's
"developed sense of humor" as a big Influence on the stylistic direction of the band.
Blotto's music may tend to be misunderstood
because their lyrics are a more significant
part of their song structure than their music.
If their words are understood, the music

reasons The Empire Strikes Back and Super-'

peaked. It should have a pre-sold audience
that was primed for a sequel when they left
the original. By and large, horror audiences
will probably start favoring more exotic plots,
as they did when The Exorcist and The

Jim Dixon
Sargeant, Cheese...'Presently without a recording contract,
Blotto has been releasing their records
through their o w n company, Blotto
Records. Their last single, "When The Second Feature Comes," which came out last
June, was Intended as a departure from their
usual style, according to Bowtle. He described It as a "straight pop tune."
Blotto would like to produce an album
soon, but there are obstacles In their way.
Bowtle feels the band has enough support to
allow them to make an LP: "Sure, we have a
lot of airplay In the Northeast," he said enthusiastically. Blotto Is "expanding" In
popularity, but, "we don't have enough
money to promote (an album) nationally."
Bowtle said an album would cost (our times
more to produce Ihan an EP, and thai they
would have to give away many free records
to radio stations and the press. He estimates
Blotto would have to hire up to ten promolion men to effectively push their album.
The band would like to get "hooked u p "
with a record company, but they are wary of
big corporations. Bowtle doesn't even see
any help coming from the Independent companies whom he feels couldn't put Blotto in a
better situation than they are In now: " W e
don't want to get tied Into a situation like
that. Blotto Records have sold more than
many of the Independent labels," he said.
Although Blotto hasn't released any new
music recently, they have been playing
steadily throughout the Northeast. Just back
from New York, where they headlined at
Trax, a well-known Manhattan club, they are
preparing for a Halloween bash at J . B .

as — Blottoween.
A recent Issue of Kite reported that "Blotto
is reportedly ready to bite at (hat European
deal," and thai the U.S. record companies
have warned them against accepting the
deal. When asked about this, Bowtle said he
had no knowledge of such a deal, but he
knew that "European markets sometimes
pick up your other records and re-release
t h e m . " He said the band would lather have a
more extensive worldwide deal instead of
having a few records released In a small
market. Bowtle stressed the point that there
was " n o definite deal," and that the band
must "weigh alternatives when considering
any kind of contract offer."
Blottoween should be a fun-filled dance
party with an unpredictable band on a totally
unpredictable night. If you're not doing
anything Saturday night, a trip to J.B.
Scott's will be a treat for all.

running 50 candidates in elections across
Ihe nation with four of New York State's 11
candidates in Albany. Dusenbury said the
party Is planning to enter a candidate in the
1982 sialc gubernatorial election.
A i Ihe age o f 55, Dusenbury said he has
never run for public office. However, he
notes, " i t isn't that I haven't lobbied and
dealt wilh political people."
Born in neighboring Schenectady,
Dusenbury attended Union and Hunter
Colleges as well as Berkley. Although he
describes himself as an "anti-war person,"
Dusenbury said he served five years in Ihe
A i r Force during World War I I .
He has belli jobs as an accountant,
bricklayer, union organizer, restaurant
manager, and a counselor lo prisoners, and
has taught French and math to juvenile
delinquents, Currently, Dusenbury said, litis consulting groups on low income energy
problems.
D u s e n b u r y said his m a j o r
accompllshments Include the founding o f ah
organization which he said was influential
in Ihe 1973 Supreme Court decision which
led l o the legalization o f abortion. Most
recently, he cites the Albany "energy Bill of|Righls" which regulates Ihe local power industry.
Dusenbury uses an analogy with bullet
In an election which he openly admits he
won't win, Dusenbury has little to lose but
something to win — namely recognition for
his party. These enable him to speak out on
issues thai other candidates try to avoid. ,
Nevertheless, Dusenbury feels a vote f o r i
him is more than an expression o f
dissatisfaction with current city government. " W e want to go beyond protest and
build a new c o m m u n i t y , " he said.
Charles Touhey

calling Incumbent Erastus C o m i n g ' s
mayoral career " 4 0 years o f neglect."
" H e (Corning) has too much political
c o n t r o l , " Touhcy says, emphasizing each
word with a downwards move of his hand.
" H e ' s been in office so long, political con-'
trol is his only concern."
Touhey loathes the " C o r n i n g Machine"!
and is determined lo "re-establish the twoparty system," I l was this belief lhal made
Touhey, a registered Democrat, run as an
indepciidanl candidate, although he does
have both Republican and Independent endorsements.
Yet, questions arise as to how an antimachine politician would get legislation
passed through machine channels.
Touhcy doesn't perceive this to be a problem. " T h e Machine Is a house o f cards be-
ing held together by Erastus C o m i n g '
Touhey says, clasping bit hands. I t w i l l
'crumble when he goes." Touhey opens his
hands to stress the point.
Another point Touhey holds against Corning is his. age. H e is just too old to make
the necessary changes in the system: But
Touhey Is " y o u n g and energetic," i f he
does say so himself.
His blond, John Dcnver-ish looks ( or
David Stockman looks, depending on the
angle) enhance the youthful image Touhey
tries to project.
" I know what needs to be done in
neighborhood revitalization," says the
35-year old native o f Albany.
His revitalization plans include forming a
non-profit corporation t o redevelop vacant
land; a corporation similar t o ( " O r maybe
the same," Touhey ponders) Capital Housing o f Albany, a housing rehabilitation and
Ihomc ownership program o f which he has
been director f o r nine years.
; Touhey prefers projects to be run by
private non-profit firms as opposed to local
governments.
" T h e role o f the government is t o p u s
out money and oversee its expenditure.
People wilh expertise know more than the
bureaucratic government."
Another pet project Touhcy has Is the
development o f Union Square, located two
blocks north o f SUNY Central, into a shopping area similar t o Boston's Quincy
Market.
Prcsenty, Corning is considering turning
this area into a stale office building complex which could not be taxed for revenue
by the city o f Albany.
Bringing money into the city may be one
concern, but replenishing the money
Touhey laid out for his campaign may be a
concern to him as well.
Touhey financed the majority o f his campaign himself, through bank loans. " N o t
by choice," he smiles.
But, i f he wins the mayoral race, perhaps
this won't be a great problem,
i He feels his chances o f winning are "very
g o o d . " A n d he is aggressively soliciting the
i student vote, frequenting the Campus
Center lobby more than.any other candidate, and more often as the election drews
closer.
" W e can't win without the student
v o t e , " he admits.
"Students are a force to reckon w i t h , "
Touhey says. " T h e y contribute to the community in taxes, housing and community
service."
No, S U N Y A didn't send press releases
about its community service program to this
member o f the Albany Board o f Education.
Touhey knows because " I researched i t , "
he smiles.
Then, solemly, " I n my administration
I'll be reaching out to students so problems
can be resolved."
A n d perhaps his promises are not all preelection nonsense. Touhey has been involved in obtaining student voting rights in this
[area. Even Jack Lester, the SA Attorney
'who helped litigate the landmark student
voting rights case in Albany lasl year, says
Touhey gave support to the case before
almost anyone else d i d .
Bui Touhcy's not stupid. Speculation has
it that student voters could have turned
around the 1973 mayoral election, i n which
Touhcy's father, Carl, lost to Corning by a
mere 3,000 votes (out o f 50,000 cast).
Students aside, his father's campaign has
also had other effects on his own race for
the mayoral seat.
" N a m e recognition," Touhey stresses as
he leans forward and points one finger. " I t
helps in have people remember Ihe name."
He feels, however, lhat his name is wellknown without his father's help,
" I ' v e also done a lol in the community,"
he points out. After graduating Princeton
University he taught at St. Anthony's
School in Albany's South E n d ; he was a
member o f the Mayor's Advisory Council;
he is a consultant to the United Tenants o f
Albany. A n d there's more.
Touhcy had the option o f re-runningjor
the School B o a r d ' o r ' Common Council
President. But, he says, '.'the mayor's office
is where the power is, and eventually I'd
want II anyway."
He adds thai as mayoral candidate he
gets more publicity so, " a t least I can bring
forward the Issues I want h e a r d . "

perspective, municipal ownership
has lost favor ih most o f the places

in that instance deficits are all too

the profit which a private company

Sexism Debated
T o the Editor:
That does il. I've read Ihe last piece of
feminist propaganda which I'll just sit back
and listen to. The recent letter from Gail
Friedberg and Eileen Moorhcad made me
cringe in disbelief of such profound, yet
simple charges of sexism.
Yes, prime examples of sexism can be
found in the classrooms. I've had many
feminist professors w h o push liberalism
down my throat, that I feci the need lo
speak out.
The only reason I don't wanl my name
printed at Ihe end of this letter is because I
am practical: 1 have jusl such a professor
right now. All the novels we are forced to
read, and all the essays we must write, are
centered around ihc plight of the woman in
a cruel society, not around such concepts as
Ihe development of the novel or its social or
political significance In other areas. I'm
tired of writing about how great women arc
in their struggle for equality and selfrealization; I've done it now for years here
at S U N Y A .
The two women cite as areas of
S U N Y A ' s sexism the problems of advertising in Ihe ASP and Ihc use of the conventional he when writing. My God, how long
did you look before you found such trivial
examples'.' Does Ihc use of he really offend
you? Sorry, but I believe it simply sounds
belter than il or he/she (or excuse me,
she/he). Who really cares? Personally, as a
male, I find no offense In calling a car or a
boat she, and 1 d o not label people as sexist
because ihey admire masculinity,
I'm nil for Ihe ERA, but let's let people
make ihcir own decisions, huh? The more
It's shoved down my throat, Ihe less I like
it. Let's give each other a break; I'm sure
the intelligent individual can make his own
reasonable decisions.

T o meet with the increasing demands of *
the party, we will be making a few changes
to help add to the success of this event.
Since trouble in the past was often caused
by outsiders, we will be limiting this year's
Halloween party to university students and
their escorted guests. This will hopefully
remove many of the negative elements that
have caused problems in the past.
Naturally, we will be enforcing the
university's alcohol policy, so don't forget
lo bring your I.D. card wilh you.
There will be a costume contest at midnight with prizes for the best original, best
couple, and best group costumes.
We hope that everyone will help us make
this party one of Ihe besl ones yet so that we
can keep this event as one of Albany's great
traditions.
By the way, admission will be two
dollars, exact change will be appreciated.
See you Saturday night,

T o the Editor:
The ASP response l o ihc letter from the
Feminist Alliance (October 27) was an absolute cop-out! The people who wrote have
a legitimate complaint: the ASP has run
advertisements that are so offensive and obnoxious, that depict women as objects of
violence. It is nol any sort of an answer to
say that the paper "accepts any ad that Is
not illegal or obscene..." Whal about ads
that arc clearly objectionable to a large segment of people? Or ads thai discriminate
but arc not illegal? Let me give you two examples of advertisements that 1 cannot
believe Ihc ASP would publish:

a threat to students who complain when
their landlords break a law. Demands for a
security ordinance (to require decent locks
on doors and windows) have been ignored,
despite allacks on more than 75 women in
their own homes. A n d Ihe cily refuses to defend residents against huge and unjustified
utility rate hikes.
Our current Alderman has nol taken a
postilion on even a single Issue since his
election to the Common Council. H e has
represented Mayor Corning, and certainly
not our neighborhood.
As an alternative, I offer a program thai

The recent federal court decisions granting students the right 10 vole in Albany will

and thai more than 700 students have
registered lo vote in Ward II this year. If
students arc l o have any influence in the cily government, il is important thai you

Suppose a white suprcmist published an
ad lo hire people l o beat up black people.
Or advertised a movie called " H o w l o Hang
Niggers?" Or suppose some antt-semites
publicized a movie depicting clearly
stereotypical Jews counting money while
they cut the Ihroais of poor people. It's absurd, isn't it? Bui wouldn't the paper decide
that such things were beyond acceptable
limits, and refuse l o print Ihem oul of sensitivity to the population of blacks and Jews
here? Yet the ASP finds it perfectly acccplable lo run similar things that are just as
hateful toward women! Why is il still felt by
some that violence against women is acceptable, that discrimination against women is
acceptable, whereas Ihe same feelings
toward other groups would obviously be
wrong.
Some of Ihe belter student papers In
nearby schools, such as the Harvard Crimson a n d the Cornell Daily Sun, refused t o
accept ads from Playboy when they were
recruiting for a spread on Ihe coeds of Ihe
Ivy League, because the pr.pers felt that
such a thing was degrading towards women.
The ASP could refuse to publish things that
half the populotion (or a smaller perccnlage, of course) felt was disgusling,
degrading,
offensive,
and/on
discriminatory. 1 certainly don't wanl l o sec,
ads for a movie about violence towards
women. More importantly, the newspaper
has a rcsponsibilty to be careful and not to
promote things which should have been
ended long ago. Think about il. You could
wallow in irndilon or, as a university paper
should d o , you can lake some initiative and |
say: N o , we won't accept this garbage

The reeling around the WCDE
sports department is that It musl
present Ihc sports that people want
to hear such as news about the pros

emphasis is placed on local high
school sports and WCDB offers
another choice to those not thnt in-

It is that incentive to communicate the sports professionally
that drives WCDB sports and its

in an acceptable way to the university community seems to be a major
concern of WCDB. Towards that
end and towards continuing the
young tradition of fine sportscasting, potential staffers undergo

Certainly, the primary funclioof the WCDB sports department is
to provide that vital link for the
Albany fan not able to attend the
football and basketball events. On
this campus, as well as others acioss
the Northeast, WCDB covers all the
Albany games during the football
and basketball seasons.
In fact, according to Phil Pivnick, Sports Director of WCDB and
Howard Strudler, the assistant
sports director, WCDB is the only
SUNY station that broadcasts both
home and away games. Usually
the tendency is for school stations
to broadcast only games played on
the road because those arc the ones
that arc non-accessible to most of
the students.
This has made
WCDB,
celebrating its fourth anniversary In
March, a bonafide actor in Ihc
Albany Sports community.
"We get some sort of respect
from the athletic department," said
Pivnick. "The radio is so important
in football and basketball season."
Indeed their dedicated coverage is
important. The knowledge that
students care enough to work as
hard as they do to send the games
back to Albany has to have a
positive efrect on Ihc players—the
athletes know that others back
home can listen in and root them
on. A testimony to that may be the
fact that since its initial coverage
began In 1978, the composite record
of both the football and basketball
teams stands at 60-21.
"The time and effort you put in
is appreciated," said Strudler, who
learns up with Pivnick to handle
most of the coverage presently done
at Albany.
"The time and effort they put ir
makes us feel we should broadcast
the games," commented Pivnick.
"When we go on trips, we go on the
bus and we really feel a part of the
team."
Aside from the live coverage,
WCDB also offers 16 sportcasts
weekly plus a special Sunday night
half hour show to review the
weekend's happenings. The sports
department used to broadcast a
middle of the week call-in sports
show but too many prank phone
call forced its cancellation.

Men Booters Cruise to Victory Against RPI; 4-1
Wednesday's win gives the Danes s
5-7-1 record with only two game;
remaining.
Wednesday's match took place in
cold and windy weather, but fortunately the rain stopped shortly
before the match began.
Albany goals were scored early in
the first half by John Isselhard,
Dorian Fanfare, and Afrim Nezaj,
Albany's premier forward.
"The Danes expected to enter the
locker room with a commanding
3-0 lead at the half, but RPI's Rich
Lcland booted in a goal with less
than a minute left, to put RPI on
the scoreboard. "We should never
have given up that goal, it was just
ridiculous. We just weren't being
. patient and controlling the ball,"
Schieffelin said.
The second half was completely
dominated by Albany. Jerry Isaacs
lengthened the lead to 4-1 with his
goal 40 minutes into the second
hair.
"It was total domination on our
part," said Schieffelin. In fact, the
Danes outshot RPI 24-10 and
goalkeeper Bill Steffcn had just one
stive.
Much of this domination was due
to forward Afrim Nezaj, a senior

Team's Goal is .500 Season

The Albany Slate men's soccer

over RPI Wednesday afternoon.
The RPI team, winlcss so far this
season, was no match for the
Danes, who totally controlled ih»
match.
Albany coach Bill Schieffelin
said, "We looked good today,
which we-haven't done too often
this season."
The Danes, usually looking forward to the playoffs this time each
year, have had a less than
distinguished season thus far.

This talented forward was recently

him the first Albany player to ever
be drafted by this league.
Schieffelin is hoping that this
total domination will continue in
the last two season games, and provide the Danes with a .500 season
record. Albany must defeat Kean
on Saturday and North Adams, on
Monday to reach the .500 point.
ISUNYA's Lewis Wins First
Coach of the Year Award
Albany Stale men's tennis coach Bob Lewis has been named the firsl
"SUNYAC Tennin Coach of the Year" after guiding the Dane netmen
to their third straight SUNYAC title,
"I'm very honored-it's nice to be recognized," said Lewis. "Bul il
certainly helps to have good players."
Dave Lcrncr, SUNYAC champion, had this to say about his coach:
"Basically, Coach Lewis did a belter job (his year. He was even more
dedicated and made us work harder. His attitude made us want to perform better and we were a little more enthused. And it helps. He's a
big reason for our good season."
Alba.vy completed their fall season at 5-1, and over his 10 years as
tennis coach Lewis has compiled an outstanding 107-38 record. In the
last eight years the Danes have not finished lower than second in the
SUNYAC, a ten team conference.
Lewis' achievement is the seconu such award won by an Albany
Great Dane tennis coach in less than one year. The women's tennis
coach, Peggy Mann, received the Eastern Tennis Association's
"Tennis Lady of the Year" award.

to run the fullback up the middle,
and Foti gets the ball about 30 plays

"They work him. He'll get them

Smith. "He's the workhorse of

The two other running backs are
Bob Pietrosanto and Darryl Davis.
Davis was Alfred's leading rusher
last year, but has only 323 yards this
season. Pietrosanto, a good receiver
out of the backfield, has 262 yards.
Defense is probably the strongest
feature of both squads. Alfred has
only given up 63 points in their

have only given up 56.

by Barbara Schindlcr
An enthusiastic crowd of approximately 250 rallied at ihe Nestle
Headquarters in While Plains lasl
Saiurdny, dressed as various Nestle
products ro support the boycott of
the company.
The four-year-old boycott, coordinated by Ihe Infant Formula Action Coalition (INFACT), is already considered the largest nonunion boycott in history, according
lo an INFACT press release.
A jar of "Tasteless Choice Coffee," a Nestle Crunch Bur and a
bottle of L'Oreal nail polish were
among the costumes. Such slogans
as "Crunch Nestle's Quick," "No
Time for Souptime" und "Libby's
Libby's Libby's — Boycott Boycott
Boycott" were written on ihe signs
curried by protestors.
A Iwo-hy-lhree-foot lletshey
chocolate bar was raffled off al the
end of the rally to "show a creative
alternative to Nestle's candy on
Halloween," according to Capital
District Rally Coordinator Jody
Dixon.
Although pleased with the rally
and its participants, Dixon was "a
little frustrated by some of Ihe
passersby who simply didn't want
to hear about the boycott," Shesaid the purpose of the rally was to
bring the issues lo those who would
otherwise nol actively seek out the
information.
Dixon also expressed concern
thai the boycott isn't receiving
enough national support.
"After all, millions of babies are
needlessly dying each year" because
of Nestle's unethical marketing of
infant formula In Ihe third world,
Dixon said,
INFACT National Chair Douglas
Johnson noted that Nestle stationed
guards and chained Ihe gales to its
headquarters.
"They know we're here and that
is the goal of Ihe rally," said
Johnson.
Nestle has suffered a 16 percent
net profit loss this year, claimed
Johnson, who believes the boycott
was a contributing factor.
Yet, he said, "at a recent
shareholders meeting, Nestle spent
almost the whole meeting explaining how Ihe loss had nothing to do
with the Boycott."
Johnson added that Nestle has,
employed 12 full-time workers
whose only job is to handle the
boycott.
No Nestle spokesperson could be
reached for comment.
