Their fears were wcJI founded.
Rolling up an 18-0 lead afiei 12
long niinuies, Albany began to gel a
lasie of the physical abuse from the
frustrated New Pali/ squad.
"Wc wanted 10 keep Ihem from

was corrected, and Albany's passing began,the Danes began scoring.
The seoie ai Ihe half was 28-12.
One reason for Ihe scoring burst
in llie second half was Peg Squaz/o,
according to Kidder, wjio played
"an outstanding game." Coming
off the bench, Squaz/o scored 10

was gieui under the boards, scored

In a meeting of the bus stud;

"I do believe that in these limes,
a portion of the bus service costs
should be borne by the users,"
Stevens said.
According to Stevens, while the
university has a responsibility to
transport Alumni Quad residents lo
classes on the uptown campus and
lo take uptown students lo the
Draper campus, il would not be illogical to charge others lor use of
Ihe SUNYA shuttle. Stevens maintains that the Albany campus is the
only unii in the SUNY system which
provides free bus service lo nondormitory residents, although lie
did say the idea to charge fares for
the SUNYA busts "has been
around since 1971."
Should a fee bi .mplcnicnicd.
Stevens said, he would anticipate
off-setting "personal service costs"
with the money, which he projected
would be in the area of '60-70,000.
Stevens blames the state Division
or Budget (DOB) for the reduction
he has been asked to make of nearly
or his present
maintenance cosls. Stevens said the
DOB has looked at the over
'150,000 redirected by SUNYA into
ihe Plant Department's rcsidenccI'uoully improvement program,
which has gone towards muchneeded repairs and improvement of
residence halls, as a greater amount
than other SUNY schools put
towards maintenance and repairs.
Stevens feels this cut was proposed by the DOB lo bring SUNYA's
maintenance spending in line wilh

Williams Trial Continues
jATtANTA, Georgia, (AP) A witness testified Thursday that, she saw one of the city's young black slaying
victims slumped over with his eyes shut in a car driven
by Wayne B. Williams, and that the youth failed to respond when she called his name.
Nellie Trammel! told jurors at Williams' murder trial
that she saw 20 year old Larry Rogers, a neighbor, with
the defendant in a green station wagon on March 30,
'1981, the day Rogers disappeared. He was found dead
10 days later.
" I said, 'Larry?' He didn't say anything," she said.
Her testimony was the fourth time prosecution witnesses
have placed Williams with one of the 28 young blacks
whose deaths during a 22-month period have been investigated by a police task force.
Mrs. Trammel! said the car Williams was driving had
cut in front of her car last March 30 and then turned
around slowly enough for her to try to talk to Rogers.
"When I looked over, I looked at this man's face, and
Larry Rogers was in the scat and he was like this," she
said, shutting her eyes and leaning against the side of the
witness stand.
Mrs, Trammell said on cross-examination that she
was not concerned about seeing Rogers under those conditions because, "I thought he was trying to hide, he
didn't want anyone to see him because he was with a

No arrests have been made in the 26 other deaths, but
prosecutors claim they can link Williams to 10 other
slaying victims — including Rogers and eight others on
the task force list. The judge has allowed testimony on
the other lOvictims for the limited purpose of showing a
pattern that might fit the Cater and Payne slayings.

Tax Policy Denounced
WASHINGTON D.C.(AP) Civil liberties told Congress on Thursday that President Reagan has no
authority to end an 11 year old government policy denying tax exemptions to segrctgatcd private schools.
Witnesses for the NAACP and Comm on Cause accused
Reagan of appearing to circumvent the laws in order to
grant special poilitical favors to two conservative
schools that have been found to discriminate.
"The federal tax laws now on the books have been interpreted by every federal appellate court which has considered the issue as prohibiting federal tax exemption
benefits for schools with racially discriminatory
policies," said M. Carr Ferguson, who headed the
Justice Department's Tax Division during the Carter administration. Meanwhile, 28 senators of varying
political persuasion introduced a resolution expressing
the view that the Internal Revenue Service has all the
authority it needs to deny exemptions to discrimnatory
Sen. Gary Hart, D-Colo., one of the 28, said that
passing a new law, as Reagan wants, might cloud the intent of the sweeping 1964 Civil Rights Act, which prohibits government aid to such schools. At the House
hearing, E. Richard Larson, counsel for the American
Civil Liberties Union, rejected Reagan's contention that
there is no basis in law for the IRS to deny tax exernpr
tions for schools that disriminate.
! "The president is wrong," Larson told the House
Judiciary subcommittee on constitutional rights. The
Constitution, the 1964 Civil Rights Act and various
court rulings t . Tel "the Reagan administration to
deny tax-exempt status to all racially discriminatory
private schools," he said.

Reagan Counters Criticism
WASHINGTON D.C. (AP) President Reagan, moving
quickly to counter crilicism of his New Federalism program, met with Ihrce Republican mayors Thursday and
won Iheir backing for his contention lhal there would be

White House aides passed out charts purporting to
show that the shift of programs and funds between the
federal government and the slates would be balanced in
every case. They emphasized that the figures they used
might well change, but that the balance they illustrated
would not.
"All states would be held harmless," said White

the $1.3 billion the New York Telephone Co. has collected in recent years, under similar circumstances, is
also legal.
Both suils were filed by state Attorney General Robert
Abrams, who claimed the utilities don't have to pay the
taxes now, and may never have to give Washington the
money. Prior, however, rejected Abrams' claims and
said that the utilities may still have to pay the taxes and
the money helps to keep customer's rates lower in the
long run anyway.

Dental School is Planned
for Buffalo Student Center
An estimated 1,000 SUNY-Buffalo students and faculty rallied on
that campus yesterday in a belated protest of the planned closing of
Squire Hall, the university's student union.
The SUNY Board of Trustees decided Tuesday not to inlerfere with
the renovation of the hall into a dental school facility despite student
University officials have been planning the eventual close of the
union since 1978, when the American Dental Association warned the
university it might lose its dental school accrcdidation because of inadequate facilities.
Squire Hall is scheduled to close by March I, according lo SUNYBuffalo Student Association President Joe Kit kin. The board of
trustees promised a new student union would be built eventually,
Ril'kin said, but would not delay Squire's closing.
The SA feels the renovation is an attempt to "de-unionize" the student groups-whlch will now be scattered around the campus-and
argues that there is ample room on both Ihc uptown and downtown
campuses for the '19 million project.
Legal action and various protests are being undertaken to forestall
the closing, Ril'kin said.
Strcss-re;atcd diseases have also
increased markedly over the past
year. Approximately 25 cases of
anorexia nervosa — an eating,
disorder wherein the victim tries to
starve herself — were reported in
1981, while only five were reported
in 1980.
Currently, Middle Earth is
operating at capacity level.

program, and they find il difficult
to recruit new help since students,
feeling the increased economic

More reserved in her opinion, Dr.
Judy Stanley Heimberg, Ph.D.,
counseling psychologist
at the
University Counseling Center, felt
there is no one special reason for
the stress students arc feeling. She
said causes of stress "run Ihc gamut
in terms of financial obligations to
powerlessness to not being able to
achieve the grade."
Heimberg remains wary of the
fact thai other' studies have shown
an increase in student stress over the
years. "We're still trying to figure
out what stress is," sue said.
Heimberg was hired in November
1978 because of her department's

group of five randomly selected
students. Each week they were
issued questionnaires specifically
designed to measure stress in their
lives. Heimberg cautioned that she
was not looking for statistics but "a
workable way to measure stress."
Unfortunately, the pilot was
halted because of lack of funding.
Heimberg hopes lo resume her
reseaich this fall.
Almost predictably, Heimberg
found that students feel the most
stress during midterms and especially during the last third or the
semester. Sometime in November,

Opposing Bottle Bills Examined

Representatives from five statewide citizen organizations met
Tuesday to reaffirm their support
for the Dottle Bill in the New York
State Legislature, and lo discredit
claims made by opponents that a
recently introduced alternative Bottle Bill would better solve this
state's litter problem.
According to New York Public

representative T o m Wathan, his
organization has been told that
both these proposals will reach the
Assembly floor this session.
The Bottle Bill is a legislative effort to relnstitute a program of

at the meeting included members o f

They claim the Bottle Bill will

create jobs in the recycling industry.
Over the past five years the bottling, beverage, and brewing Industries have vehemctly opposed
the legislation, saying it will result
in the loss o f hundreds o f jobs.

has admitted more than once thai lie irevel
read the entire novel until afler Cohen had
finished the screenplay.
Apparently what interested Cohen anil Ii
vin was Ihe underlying theme of guilt in the
story, and not Ihe legions ol Mesh-devout ing
ghouls that sold Ihe novel. Innumerable
critics have dismissed Ghust Story as a
failure, apparently nol finding It sufficiency
frightening. I can only think thai having suffered through one clone of Friday the 13th
after another, these professional moviegoers have become somewhat jaded. The
ultra-violence so explicitly depicted in so
stab'em/slash'ems leaves only human
sacrifice live on stage as the next step in horror entertainment.
In comparison. Ghost Story is a supiislngly quiel horror movie.
Not that it won't scare you. A-; a rule
though, it won't scare you when you expect
it to. or how you expect it lo.
I hesitate to give away loo much of Ihe
plot, but (he premise is that a group of elderly men, pillars of their small, quiet, New
England town, are apparently being haunted

KSYTI presents many productions geared

A new Brookings Institute study
claims slums arc necessary to urban
America, because they provide poor
people with a place to live. Anthony
Downs, author of the study, says
middle and upper income people
want to distance themselves from
the poor, and so create zoning that
I'orccs the poor into Ihc oldest, most
deterioralcd areas.
The situation will change, he
says, only If poverty is ended or the
rich provide enough subsidies to
enable the poor lo live in decent
housing—neither of which is likely
to happen soon.
Many Americans may be
pessimistic about surviving a
nuclear war, but not the federal
government. In a series of commentaries prepared for publication in
local newspapers, the Federal
Emergency Management Agency Is
pushing the idea that the U.S. could
fully recover from an all-out
nuclear war within two to five
years. William Chipman, head of
the agency's civil defense division,
says, "people would be miserable,
but they would in all probability
rise to the occasion and restore
some kind of a country."

ROTC - Two Opinions
To the Editor:
It has been an interesting, if somewhat
tedious, semester. Those o f us directly involved in ROTC, especially, have watched
the development o f the controversy surrounding the program's existence on campus with a great deal of interest, and not a
little amusement.
Before discussing the issue, however, it is
necessary to lake (he ASP to task for not
presenting a balanced view of ROTC.
Granted, it is issues, not facts, that arc
presently being discussed. But by not providing the student body with a factual basis
upon which to work, the ASP has failed in
its responsibility to its leaders and the
privilege o f free press.
It seems that there arc two major points
that bother people about ROTC. The first
is that ROTC discriminates in its enrollment policy, thereby violating university
rules on the subject. This is an incorrect Impression. In accordance with SUNYA
regulations and the agreement signed by the
ROTC and S U N V A , anyone may take
ROTC classes. Had anyone bolhered to try,
they would have found (hat classes are open
to everyone.
The other fears that have been expressed
pertain, in general to ROTC posing a threat
to traditional academic neutrality. Since
ROTC is voluntary, is not funded by
S U N Y A , and has neither policy making
ability or representation at any level of sladenl government or university administration, I fail to see where its power to restrict
academic freedom lies. Any other claims,
such as plots by the government, conl'onnily, etc., are pure conjecture.
Check Please?
To Ihe Kdilor:
I am currently an undergraduate simian
a( SUNY Albany, but I ant studying in
France through an overseas program.
At ihe present moment, I am eating on
seven francs a day, that is less than $1.40,
and I have been doing this lor two monllb
now. I have borrowed money from every
member of my family and from friends I
have known lor less than a month. I an
fortunate to be able to study in a foreign
country aj all; I realize this fact more than
ever after seeing many of Ihe people here.
Nonetheless, why am I being forced to
count every penny thai goes into my
Had anyone bothered to take the time to
get involved with and try to understand
ROTC, instead of just attacking it out o f
hand, they would sec that the program is
not some dangerous brainwashing institute,
nor docs it teach dogma and conformity.
A t least an effort is being made,
however, to allow ROTC to involve itself
w i t h the ongoing controversy. The
members o f SUNYA Peace Project and
Gala deserve recognition for their commitment to allowing both sides of the issue to
be aired. It is at least a first step towards
understanding what ROTC is all about.
It is not rhetoric, but active work towards
comprehension by both sides that will in the
end be important. ROTC can become a
contributing, concerned, part of the student
environment, as it has at so many other
schools committed to academic freedom.
Just give us the chance.
— Brandon E. Hetcher
I n the Kdltur:
II is extremely comforting to know that
someone on this campus understands what
the concept o f a university really stands for!
I am referring, of course, to a recent
editorial concerning the presence o f the
ROTC program on SUNYA's campus.
M r . I.enter obviously comprehends the
value of his education — that being one free
from any bias.
How can anyone honestly begin to experience and cultivate, free from any prejudice, the vast realm of ideas and values
suirounding oneself with such organizations pieseni ai tut educational institution'/
Personally, my integrity is insulted.

Parking Peeve
T u the Editor:
I am an employee of the State University
here in Albany, and have been employed
lor nearly fifteen years by Ihe plant deparlIIICIII. During that time I have had some
disagreements Willi Ihe University policies
governing many aspects of the University
Community and until now, I have been able
lo grin and bear it.
On that morning, I drove a nonregistered, meaning university parking
icgislfution, vehicle lo work. My normally
used car would nol run. I went directly lo
the security office upon my arrival lo oblain
a temporary parking permit as required.
When I requested a permit I was told no
temporary permits could be issued wiihoui
Ihe prior approval of Joe Fox. It was also
slated thai ii only applied lo plain department personnel. Therefore, I was refused a
permit and I had Ihe choice of going back
home or parking illegally. Having some important duties to do early in the morning, I
I told the security officer if I get a ticket
today I would be back and someone would
cat the ticket. Well, I know ihe unfortunate
fact is my paycheck will be garnished lor
the fine, which in this case would be len
dollars. Well, lets keep the little man down,
right? I take home less than nine thousand
dollars per year so believe me the len dollars
would hurt.
1 might add that absolutely no notice was
given for this new procedure. I even checked with our local C.S.E.A. President; ii was
all new lo him too.
I realize the ramblings of maintenance
people don't carry much clout, and I even
realize I am probably jeopardizing my
future here at the university, bin ihe
possibility of someone benefiting in ihe
future makes it worth the effort. In sumtmilion, if the facts disclosed within result in
my dismissal or other harassment let me
just say, " F r a n k l y , I don't give a d a m n ! "

Learn Concern
T o the Editor:
Recently, many of my feelings and
thoughts about this university were
drastically reversed, I do nol usually speak
out on issues such as tiiis, bin until recently
1 didn't feci I needed to. Now I do!
Presently, I am a first semestei
sophomore, and for ihe past three
semesters I have seen and heard some very
good and also some very had things. At this
moment ihe killer far exceeds ihe former.
The bad (and unjust ihiug to ihe students)
I lull I am rul'crilng lo is Ihis university's incapability lo retain excellent professors.
Recently, my MSI 215 teacher, Professot
Hishko, told Ihe class he may be Icuvluy
after this semester. I took the liberty lo ask
him why he was leaving, and I was shocked
at his response. Although I do not wish to
reveal everything he told me, I do feel Ihai
the students must know at least what is happening in some areas and what a leachei
goes through here.
In this ease I am referring to Professot
liishko. Can it be possible thai he lias
350-400 students in his class and yel lias only two graduate assistants? Yes, ii can. Can
it be possible, at ihis "excellent" university
thai Professor liishko spends long and
tedious hours going over students' tests so
that he can be fair to each and every student? Yes, it can. Can il he possible thill
Professor liishko loves lo teach so much,
that he is sacrificing his lime caring lor sindents' needs instead o f publishing articles
and papets that are most cases required fin
a leachei lo receive tenure? O i l , yes ii can.
Can it also be possible that wc us students
don't have much say hi ihe mailer? Yes, ii
If this university is going to continue lo
crank out excellent students, it tnusl I'irsl
leach them. Let us for a moment take our
eyes off of our own ambitious, desires and
needs at this "place o f higher education,"
and put thein on the future S U N Y A
students who have and will have the same
hopes of learning at this school that wc I'irsl
had (and I hope still have). Wejusl can't let
good leachei s slip away from this school for
ihosc reasons I have mentioned (although
those may not be ihe only reasons in Professor llishko's case). So, is il possible thai
we as students, who want Ihis university to
continue in excellence, can do something
aboui ihis seemingly untouchable situation? Yes, it is!
chose to stay.
This Is a new twist but otherwise a more
common-than not type of unnecessary liarrasscment set upon university employees.
Not only arc we forced to pay a regislation
fee for the privilege o f parking on university
property, we also have to park a good
distance away from the buildings (unless
you arc high enough in the administrative
class, in which case you can park ten feel
from the building entrance doors.)

New Gym Rules
T o the Editor:
As you are well aware, our campus suffers from a lack of indoor recreational
space. A n added burden placed upon the
Physical Education Center is the illegal use
of the facility by non-university persons,
who view il as an open building' for anyone
to use.
As you enter the building, signs proclaim
"Physical Education facilities arc to be used by university personnel o n l y . " However,
in reality, during the evening and weekends,
there are more non-university persons using
the facilities than university persons.
We are determined to correct this situation. Therefore:
>• Beginning Monday, February I, 1982, all
persons wishing lo participate in free time
or open recreational basketball musi enter
the main gymnasium via the front building
lobby only, and are Instructed to leave their
University picture I.D. card with the student attendant on duly during the following
times: Monday—Friday from 5:30p.m. to
closing; Saturday from 8:30a.m. to closing;
Sunday from noon to closing.
The sole purpose for initialing Ihis procedure is to keep unwanted, non-university
persons oul of ihe facility. thus making
courts more readily available for our own
students, faculty and staff.
I f we are to accomplish this objective,
your total cooperation is requited. We ask
that you abide by the following regulations:
• Always bring your University picture
I.D. card with you whenever you visit ihe
Physical Educullon Center;
** Always cooperate with the student attendant stationed at the entrance lo the main
gymnasium. He/she will ask you to leave
your I.D. on file us you enter. It will be
relumed when you exit;
•- Do not open any gym doors from the inside, if persons knock or request entry.
They will no doubt be persons who do not
being in Ihe gym in the first place; and
• Guests — Each University person is permitted lo bring one guest into ihe building
lo use (he facilities, However, each gucsl
must be registered at Ihe Physical Education Center Information Desk located In the
front lobby. You are responsible for your
guest and therefore, should not sponsor someone you do not know.
Please understand that we are doing this
for you. Ii should nol be thought of as an
inconvenience, but as an attempt to return
the facility to its rightful users. Please let us
know if you have any problems with this
new policy.

Holy Cow?
To the Editor:
This Idler is a reply lo lite tirade of a Mr.
Subroto Mukerjea printed In Ihe (December
8, 1981) ASP.
So, Mr. International Student, you don't
seem to care for American students who are
constantly badgering you with stupid questions about your country? So you wonder
at the supposed intelligence of SUNYA
students, asking you if cows wander around
in your country, or if there ure Untouchables In your country (India)?
I guess you were implying that anyone
wiih half a brain should know thai these
siiualions don't exist in India. Well I'irsl o f
all, as an obviously highly urbanized person
who has probably never been in the
backwards areas of bis own country, you
probably arc not aware that cows do roam
around In smaller towns in India because
Ihey are holy animals in the Hindu religion.
And although ihe Indian government's
programs to eradicate uniouchability in the
large urban areas (from which you piobubly
came) have been quite successful, countless
persons in small towns in India are lo Ihis
day being deprived o f their tights because
of the Untouchubllily siigtna.
So, instead of condemning American
students for asking you stupid questions,
pel haps you should listen lo these questions
and then go research ihein. Perhaps you
will learn something,
Then you can thank your lucky slurs that
there are still one ot iwo American students
willing lo waste theii time lalking to a snob
like you.

In recent years, this newspaper has had a relatively libertarian advertising
policy. The only restrictions we've insisted on were that the advertisement not
be obscene, not sell anything illegal, and not lie or be deceitful.
Over the past year or so, we've refused to carry some ads we considered
obscene, and we've refused to carry some ads selling illegal goods or services.
But there has only been one occasion where we found ourselves compelled to
refuse some ads that are deceitful; advertisements promoting Rensselaer
Polytechnic Institute's Army ROTC Extension Center at SUNYA.
We've decided that the ROTC ads, as'well as ads from other military services
and intelligence services are deceiving. The ads describe scholarships and
"valuable" training, but don't mention that homosexuals need not apply.
Because these ads are deceiving, we find them unsuitable for ASP publication.
These government agencies readily admit that they discriminate against gays
and lesbians; they consider homosexuality a "medical disqualification" (See
ASP, November 17). However, a gay or lesbian won't always discover that their
sexual orientation is a "medical disqualification" until they're committed to
service. Those in the military face a dishonorable discharge, marking their
employment and official records for the rest of their lives.
If, for example, we run an ad for an illegal product, we legally can be held as
co-conspirators. We feel that if we run an ad that lies by telling half-truths, we
have lied as well.
Because of our decision, Army ROTC pulled an ad they had placed with us.
The National Security Agency ad in today's paper was run to fufill a contract
with our advertising agency. In the future, no ad will run in this paper from
these agencies unless they state that they do discriminate against homosexuals.
We really don't know if the military and intelligence agencies will continue to
advertise with us. Wc do stand to lose some income, but we feel obligated to tell
the truth, as best we can.

Albany do battle, there is always,
that something extra. The last time
these two teams met at University

"We've had some great great

With the SUNYAC divisional title up lor grabs, tomorrow night's

In the second half the game blew
wide open. Albnny could not
penetrate the C o n t i n e n t a l s '
unyielding zone defense and the ice
cold Danes could not hit the outside
shots they look. John Dicckelman
was their top scorer with 16 points,
sinking seven of 20 shots, but the
usually accurate Dan Crotiticr hit
only four of 15, Mike Gatto was
three for II, Jan Zadoorian only
two for eight and Joe Jcdnak but

In the first ten minutes of the half
Albany could only muster six
points. But while they slumped,
Hamilton was lust getting warmed
up, stretching their advantage to .
50-34 over that period.
The Continentals held on to that
If point margin for five more
minutes and then ran up the score
when Albany substituted heavily
and started fouling them.
Now, after two losses, the Danes
feel they are ready lo begin a new
win streak. But to do so they will
have to beat SUNYAC arch-rival
Potsdam tomorrow night in Univcrsily Gym at 8:30.
"We have to really bounce back

Tar Heels are Tops
Like any great drama, the 1981-82 college basketball season is slowly leading up to its climactic conclusion in March. As the season has
progressed into the new year, we have seen some new characters take
leading roles, while perennial frontrunners have taken a back seat to
the new kids on the block. One notcablc exception to this has been
Dean Smith's North Carolina Tar Heels, who have played a variety of
tough opposition throughout the season, and yet still have a 15-1
As good a season as the undefeated Missouri Tigers have enjoyed
thus far, it is ridiculous to put any team other than the Heels as
number one. In additon to their seven ACC games thus far, Carolina
has played non-conference teams such as NIT champ Tulsa, Pac-10
leader USC, SEC power Kentucky, and other fine teams such as Kansas, Rutgers, South Florida and Santa Clara. In all, Carolina's nonleague opponents, all of whom arc well over .500, sport a record of
100-43, not counting the games they lost lo the Heels. One loss,
especially to a fine team like Wake Forest, should not jar Carolina
from the top spot. The fact that it did shows how inaccurate the polls
actually arc.
• * •
While North Carolina has lived up to their pre-season press clippings, the Louisville Cardinals have not. Picked by many as the leading
challenger to Carolina for the number one ranking, the Cardinals have
fallen upon hard limes, losing three straight games lo drop to an 11-6
record. The Metro Conference race, usually less competitive than a
Russian election, is now a five-horse race with Louisville having an
outside post position, since they have played only one road game, and
have already lost lo Virginia Tech twice. The reason for their
breakdown? The Cardinals, lor all of their fast-breaking, slan,dunking talent, clonot have a good outside shooting team, and in Division I basketball, with the great zone defenses played by very large
people, you have to have a pure shooter or two, and Louisville does
a• *
Recruiting is certainly a major part of college coaching. It can put a
program on the map, and it can also wipe one off the map. At the
beginning of this season, the Georgia Bulldogs were picked to be
among the nation's best teams, and one wise guy(mc) actually picked
them lo win the whole thing. Why7 Because Hugh Durham had done
an outstanding job of bringing in outstanding players, the best of
whom is 6-7 forward Dominique Williams.Without a true center a year
ago, the Dogs finished 19-12, narrowly missing an NCAA bid. Once
again, however, Durham failed to bring in a quality center to go with
power forward Terry Fair, and this season, Georgia is paying for it.
Where SEC schools went out and improved themselves, Georgia has
the same team as last year, and teams have discovered how to exploit
their vulnerable middle. While Durham has done an outstanding job
of bringing in guards and forwards, his failure lo lure a center to
Athens has pin Georgia in the dog house.

The defeat was only the Danes'
second in nine games, but it was
also their second in a row. Last
Saturday they were nipped by Cortland in a SUNY Conference game,
71-67. The two teams arc now tied
lor second place in the SUNYAC,
behind Potsdam, with 3-1 records.

For the past few seasons, Big 10 fans have been hailing their conference as the nation's best. This season, however, the slroy is a bit
different, as teams like Michigan, Wisconsin and Michigan Stale have
fallen on hard limes. Purdue is 4-2 in the Big 10, 3-6 outside of it.
Perennial doormat Northwestern, while still near the bottom, has won
two games in the league, and has lost only one league game by more
than five points. While Iowa and Minnesota are as good as anyone,
the other eight have slipped to the point that the Big 10 can not be considered as one of the nalion's two or three best conferences. That
honor belongs to the SEC, ACC, and Big East.

Closer to home, the Albany Great Danes tackle Potsdam in a key
SUNYAC game Saturday night at 8:30 in University Gym. This game
is the renewal of a rivalry which has seen these two squads play seven
times in the last two seasons, with every game being of great
significance. This season Potsdam, 12-5 overall, is 4-0 in the SUNYAC
East, while Albany is 11-5 overall, 3-1 in the division.

Woods has become the big offensive gun since the graduation of

Potsdam will be trying to get the
ball to him as they did to Rowland
last year.
Replacing Rowland this season at

Bears Invade

Albany Streak
Stopped With
Hamilton Loss
By L A R R Y K A H N
In their first meeting since last year's
dramatic overtime N C A A East Regional t i tle game, the defending National I champion Potsdam Bears visit Univcrstiy Gym
tomorrow night at 8:30 to take on the
Albany State Great Danes in a critical conference game.
While this year's edition of one o f Division I l l ' s most hotly contested rivalries
lacks the national significance it has had in
recent campaigns, the Bears are currently in
first place with a slim one game lead over
second place Albany and C o r t l a n d .
S U N Y A C supremacy is certainly at stake.
After a successful winter spree that saw
them win seven o f eight games, the high Hying Albany Stale Great Danes came
crashing down to earth on Tuesday night
when they were crushed by Hamilton,
76-50. The Continentals, now 15-2, are
ranked second in the stale and eighth In Ihe
nation in Division I I I . The loss snapped a
16-game home winning streak for ihe 11-5
" I eannol remember gelling beat this bad

coach Dick Sauers.
You have to go back to December 6, 1980
lo find Ihe last lime Albany even lost in
University Gym — a triple overtime heartbreaker lo the eventual national champion
Polsdam Bears.
Bui on Tuesday Hamilton played as if
they had Ihe home court advantage.
Powered by 6-4
f o r w a r d Charles
Robinson's 19 points and 12 rebounds, and
aided by some horrendous shooting by
Albany, the Continentals led all the way.
" W e should have bad control in the first
half," Sauers said, noting that ihe Danes
had dominated the offensive boards, but
had continually failed to take advantage of
ihe situation. They connected on only 11 of
42 shots in the first half (22 o f 77 in the
game) contrasted with Hamilton's 67 percent shooting that gave them a 32-26
halflime lead.
" A s far as I'm concerned," said Albany

and 12-5 overall, have only losl one regular

But a Dane victory tomorrow would force a
three way tie between Potsdam, Albany,
and Cortland. Albany and Cortland, al 3-1,
are currently lied for second place in the

Nitecki said there were several
reasons for SUNYA's drop in the
ratings, including Ihe addition of
two new libraries — the University

University of Manitoba — to the
ratings eompelilion.
As further reasons for Ihe rating?
drop, Nitecki cited staff increases in
other libraries while SUNYA library
staff remained the same, as well as
inflation and budget limitations
which limited the amounts o f
periodicals, serials and microfilms
which could be bought.
But S U N Y A ' s library has improved over the past year, as well.
Nilecki said thai the library rrccclved additional points in terms of increased numbers o f volumes
ordered and a rise in books loaned
lo other libraries.
Nitecki explained that the library

Olher eaiegories include: expenditures for binding; oilier operating
expenses; Ihe number of operating

campuses when they mccl this
weekend al Ihe Student Association
o f Ihe State University (SASUl conference al S.U.C. Brockport.
The conference will run from Friday through Sunday.
SUNY Chancellor Clifton Wharlon is expected to address the
students on Friday evening.
" W h a r t o n will run into some
controversy al the conference" according lo SASU representative Jim
Tierncy. " M e doesn't really defend
the Slate University and what he
says to students is very different
from the actions he has taken,"
Tierncy said,
" F o r the past three years the
Chancellor has been fighting for
things other than the students'
needs," says Scott Wcxler, SASU
Governance Advisor.
Wcxler said, "many students feel
the Chancellor has been helping the
governor erode the SUNY system
and that he has catered to the needs
of the corporate w o r l d . "
SASU Executive Vice President
for Campus Affairs Dave Pologe
said, " a n important part of the conference will be to Id Ihe students
