Spikers' Personality Aids Them in 30-5 Season?"
by Michael Carmen
Personalities play a very important part on sports teams. Last
year's women's volleyball team's
main reason for losing In the Stale
Tournament was attributed to personality problems with key players.
This season the women foresaw the
dilemmas and have learned to deal
with them in a more mature manner. Proof of this is their record —

"Every precaution must be taken
lo guard againsl oversight and error" due lo the closeness of the

Election officials indicate that il
will be three or four more days
before all the voles can be counted.
The prison bond issue was pushed by officials to relieve overcrowding in the slate's penal institutions.
Thomas Couglin, Commissioner
o f Correctional Services, maintained throughout the campaign that
the stale's prisons were dangerously
overcrowded. He contended that
the prisons were the most overcrowded ever in the state's history.
He pointed out that the prison
population of 25,000 was approximately 2,000 over the official
capacity of the stale's prison
population. The bond issue would
raise funds for the construction of
t h r e e new m a x i m u m - s e c u r i t y
prisons, providing space for 4,000
additional inmates.
Opponents of the prison bond
said that Ihe $500 million Ihe slate
quoted as the proposition's cost was
far too low. The Voters Against the
Prison Construction Bond say that
when finance charges over the
30-ycar payback period o.' the loan
are included, the bond's cost totals
$1.5 billion.
They also contend that the new
prisons would not help reduce the
crime rate. Donald Newman, Dean
of Ihe SUNY Albany School of
Criminal Justice, said that prisons
arc "probably the worst condition
to rehabilitate i n . "
Opponents have also suggested
using other means to relieve the
burgeoning prison population.
They say thai programs such as victim restitution, probation, and
community service, rather than imprisonment, could be used to
release and rehabilitate non-violent

They protccl two quarterbacks,
Joe DiOirolomo and Marc Baron.
"They can both run and throw,"
noted Marcella. But they also throw
interceptions. A lot of them. Between them and the third string

tailback Russel Samuels. Samuels
missed the first three games with an

well within our reach."
T o attain that goal Albany will

by Barbara Schindlcr
A proposed S U N Y budget with
an increase of $143.8 million was
approved for next year b y , the
SUNY Board of Trustees.
Although final approval by the
State Division of Budget cannot be
expected until lamraTy, S A S U
Communication Director Marilyn
Appleby is hopeful there will be
final approval in January.
" T h e increase appears quite
l a r g e , " said C h a i r p e r s o n o f
S U N Y ' s Board of Trustees Donald
Blinken. "However, when placed in
context of accommodating S U N Y ' s

sludents, protecting the quality of
their education and meeting increasing inflationary pressures and
continued high fixed cost, the-pro-
posed budget is really very conservative."
S U N Y Chancellor Clifton Wharton, Jr. said that there was some
concern over "maintaining program quality." He explained that
"over 16 million is being requested
to improve student-facility ratios,
provide a minimum level of computer access l o students and to
strengthen library and sludcnl service support."
" S A S U is basically satisfied with
the budget proposal," said A p pleby, "but we're watching out for
what il means as far as quality."
Appleby briefly explained the
process involved in final budget approval.
According to Appleby, during
the summer all S U N Y schols pro-
pose a budget to SUNY Central

State Consumer Protection Board Chief Karen Burstcin staged a news conference Monday to release the

for the rights of SUNY students. Every year
SASU has been at the forefront of the fight
for the continued support of affordable
public education. This year the battles are
going to be longer and harder.
The Reagan budget cuts are going to put
a strain on the SUNY budget. The elimination of many financial aid programs will
make attending colleges that much harder
for so many students. We have to make a
strong stand and show the State Legislature
that we can't afford to suffer ariy more cuts
in our budgets.
There arc things that wc as students can
do. SASU can only do so much. It needs
the support of the students on the campuses. The representatives to the stale

Crimes for the State
Good news comes today in the form of. 3.400'votes'..
This is the approximate difference between whether or not the prisoiLbond
referendum will pass. Right now the tally is leaning toward the nay vote, "out the
recount is on the way.
If the nay vote gets switched to yea, the latter would hardly be a good description of our reaction.
The referendum proposed the raising of funds for the construction of about
4,000 cells in three new maximum security prisons. The justification here is that
ihis would relieve overcrowding — overcrowding that is considered dangerous
and inhumane. Presently, prisons in New York State are operating at 110 percent of their capacity.
Let's examine what we have lo work with here. We're talking about a bond
worth $500 million. This money is supposedly going toward building a new
home for thai extra ten percent. Let's be serious. The attitude of New York
judges has always seemed to be "if there's a cell there's a way." And there's no
question of will involved — judges arc very willing. The fortunate thing is that
certain citizens are not.
Wc sit here wondering about the worth of $500 million. While we're at it we
might as well wonder about the worlh of the bond's total cost. Once the loan
that created the finance for this bond runs through its 30-year payback period,
Ihis baby could be worlh an estimated $1.5 billion. For what? For new state
prisons? They've got lo be kidding.
• Speaking of kidding, New York State Commission on Corrections Chair
Kevin McNiff was quoted as saying, "We do not have choirboys or choirgirls in
prison — 70 percent have been convicted of violent crimes." (ASP 10/16/81)
Firstly, what constitutes a violent crime? Secondly, what of the other 30 percenl? What part of Ihis 30 percent is in prison due lo the fact lhat they were
found holding a fairly insignificant amount of drugs? Do you think that a
violent atmosphere characterized by murderers and rapists helps lo reform someone who is behind bars because he/she likes to smoke pot? Would this be
helped by new facilities? Oh sure. II always works that way, doesn't it?

Judy Kollai, a co-captain on the
team, said, "The team's morale is
very, very high. The team meetings
and morning workouts have really
pulled us together. You saw a lot of
hugging out there today — we're a
very close team now."
The meet was also the first competition for many on Ihc learn so
nervousness also played a part. "I
think there was a lot of scarincss involved in this meet," said Fernandez. "It was a total, total team
effort, with everybody contributing. For instance, in the 200
Medley Relay we had four
newcomers. Their participation
made the difference between third
place and fourth. I don't think they
really felt like a pari of Ihc team until they swam that event. They really
counted In the meet."
The four rookies were Dina
DaRosa, Cathy Squillace, Amy
Bisson, and Carol Higgins.
"I think we have very high potential, " said Fernandez. "We really
deserved the third even though it
was very close.
"Sarah Bingham really molded
this team while she was swim coach
here. We're definitely on the way
up. This was an excellent showing."
One difference has been the mandatory morning workouts, which
were optional last year. In addition
to their afternoon workouts, the
Danes must also practice from.
.6:30-8:00 a.m.
"The workouts have really paid
off," said Fernandez. "After today
I shouldn't be hearing any more
complaints about them."
It will take a lot of workouts,
however, before Albany will be

Ithaca won the meet with a commanding 132 points and St.
Lawrence followed with 117.
Albany had 91 and McOill had 90.
The other teams participating in the

Danes Overcome Weather and N.Y. Tech, 41-7
by Larry Kahn
The Albany State home football
season came to an. end with the
Danes overcoming Division I I New
York Tech and the weather in a 41-7
win on Saturday. The. Danes increased their record to 6-3 in the
cold, driving wind and snow. New
York Tech dropped to 4-4-1.
The weather played a major role
in the game and also kept the fans
at home. Attendance was estimated
as less than 100.
" W e did it for ourselves," said
Dane co-captain Chuck Priore, one
of 15 seniors playing in their last
home game. " I f they don't want to
support us that's their business."
The wind, blowing hard from
west to east, made punting very difficult, and the cold and snow made
Ihc ball hard to handle. Both or
these factors seemed to hamper
New York Tech more than Albany.
The Bears turned the ball over seven
times, the Danes only twice.
John Berry, the Bear punter, had
the roughest day of all. He averaged
only 21.2 yards on five punts,
fumbled two snaps and had a punt
blocked — all deep in his own territory.
" T h e i r kicking game must have
cost them half their points," said
Albany head coach Bob Ford.
Albany had the wind at their
backs in the first quarter and used it
to their advantage. On their first
two drives Berry punts of 21 and 18
yards left the Danes al about midfield. On the first they marched 49
yards in eight plays with John,
Eric Newlon and Gerry Wicrzbicki almost blocked John Berry's punt.
Wierzicki did block another one. (Photo: Will Yurman)
Dunham sweeping 13 yards Into the
end zone on the last one. On the second it look them nine plays before
quarterback T o m Pratt scored on a
keeper from two yards out to make
ihc score 14-0.

Throughout the first quarter

the Albany team of Mciklcham and

with 149.9 points. Ranney, a
freshman, had one of the best dives
of the day, a forward dive in the
pike position with one and a half
somersaults, which earned her
judges' scores o f six, seven, and six
and one half.
Albany also had a couple of third
place finishes in the meet. The first
came in the 300 yard Backstroke

Slykc, and Ann Wilson teamed up
lo take third with a time of 3:41.
