Siena Sweeps Day-Night Doubleheader
But Five-Run Eighth Dumps RPI, 6-1 , x
By MARC HASPEL
Whenever the boys of spring
from Albany and Siena get
together, you can just as well
discard the Division I (Siena) and
Division III (Albany Stale) labels.
This Caplial District rivalry has
always been a fierce one and
Wednesday's unusual day and
night, home and home, twinbill was
ccrtainlya worthy renewal of it.

by a score f 16-14 and dropped the
evening game by an even closer
margin, 8-7.
The visiting Indians jumped all
over Albany pitching in the sunlit
opener played at University Field.
Siena scored two runs in the first,
two more in the second inning then
exploded for seven in the third
frame. Albany Stale head baseball
coach Mark Collins had to use three
hurlers before he could cool down
Siena's bats.
The Danes managed to scrape
some-runs back with one run in Ihe
bottom of the first and two more in
Ihe notion of the fourth, but it
wasn't until their following time tubal that Albany was able to get
back into the ball game.
With Siena leading 12-3 after
chalking up another run in the lop
half of the fourth, Albany came up
with eleven runs to lake a 14-12
lead. Catcher Jerry Rosen did mosl
of Ihe damage by slamming a tworun home run and following it with
a Iwo-run single in that hair of Ihc
inning. Rosen has now hit in 19 of
his last 27 plate appearances lifting
his season's average lo a wolloping
.491. The junior catcher has knocked in 24 runs also.
Designated hitter Bobby Rhodes
also contributed largely in that big
fifth inning by blasting a big Ihrcerun home run for the Danes' ninth,
tenth and eleventh ruris of the rally. ,
Albany could not hold on to that
lead as in the top of the seventh

A proposal which calls for mandatory, University-wide student
evaluation of all courses and professors was delayed until next fall
by the Committee on Evaluation
Policy (CEP).
Last week, the proposal which
would use Ihe criteria approved by
the Educational Policy Committee
(EPC) was referred to next fall's
EPC by Ihc CEP. In the meantime
the CEP plans to draw up a com-
prehensive policy on the evaluation
issue.
The proposal was introduced by
University Senators Eric Koli and
Mark Weprin.
Koli is wary of the CEP's
Approximately 12,500 celebrants braved the dirt and long beer lines under partly cloudy skies to make
Celebration '82 a success in the eyes of the event's organizers. '
"I was very pleased with Ihe whole thing," said University Concert Board President Dan Pozin, one of the
chief organizers of the event. "We had virtually no problems. The bands (A Flock of Seagulls, Toots and Ihe
Maylals and Squeeze), the crowd and everybody involved had a great time."
Pozin cited some minor problems during the course of the afternoon. A professional juggler's machetes
were taken away by security as a precautionary measure, Pozin said. The UCB President also said some fence
jumpers got in and the crowd might have pushed over an outhouse before or during Ihe event. Pozin did not
know about arrests made during Celebration '92.
But according to University Police, there were a few arrests made during Celebration '82. An Albany High
student was arrested for damaging a porla-john. Also, a non-sludent was arrested for breaking a Seneca Hall
window.
According to Pozin, UCB hired University Police and some Pinkerton guards to be a security force during
the concert. He believed there was enough of a patrol to keep the crowd under control.
After the concert the trash accumulated was cleaned up in less than two hours, Pozin said. "The trash crews
were psyched and ready for clean-up after the event."
"Because of the smoothness of the whole event we see no reason to change the format," Pozin said.

"There are a number of faculty

mandatory
evaluation," he said. "I'm afraid
ihe committee's (CEP) decision to
form a policy is just a way of denying students their riglu lo have
courses and professors evaluated."
Further, Koli feels ihe committee's action will cause the delay of
the decision concerning Ihe mailer
al least one and a half scars unless
(nexl year's) student Senators push
it hard."
"I'm hoping EPC introduces this
into the Senate by September," said
Weprin. "Although I think it's a
good bill, it has a slim chance to
receiving faculty approval."
The usefulness of CEP has been
questioned by Koli. "The Committee has been around for so long, but
they have not yet succeeded in forming a University-wide policy,"
said Koli. " I ' m doubtful the
students can trust them."
The bill also called for publication of the evaluation results which
would be available at the Main
Library, the Offices of the Center
for Undergraduate Education and
in Ihe offices of the Student
Association.
Members of ihe Committee, according lo its minutes, feel a comprehensive policy is "needed in
order to address the issues and concerns surrounding instructional
evaluation on campus."
The CEP hopes to include in its
policy statement:
•• Ihe purposes of ihe evaluation;
' >• Who shall have access to
the evaluation;
• The limitations of the
evaluation;
^ What shall be the content
and form of the evaluation;
>• How ihe policies will be applied.
Weprin believes these issues have
already been addressed in the proposal.
"The purpose of Ihe bill," said
Weprin, "is lo give teachers the opportunity to know what's working
and what is not. It also enables
students to know what the classes
and the professors are all about."
The Chair of CEP, Frank Pogue,
was unavailable for comment.

Reagan, Brezhnev to Meet
W A S H I N G T O N , D.C. (AP) President Reagan will accept the informal invitation by Soeiel President Leonid I.
Brezhnev to meet with him in the autumn, administration
officials said today.
While no site has been set, they said there lias been
talk in the While House about possibly holding the
meeting in Austria.
Presidential spokesman Larry Speakcs, asked about a
published report that Reagan would meet Brezhnev in the
fall as the Soviet leader has proposed reiterated earlier
statements that Reagan would consider a meeting "at the
appropriate time; after proper preparations have been
made and when there is some likelihood for "positive
results."
Speakcs said Reagan still hopes Brezhnev will attend
the United Nations in June and that the two leaders
could meet then.,
The Washington Post reported in today's editions that
Reagan has decided to accept Brezhnev's offer to hold a
summit meeting in a third country, probably Austria or
Ireland, in October.
Speakcs said he would not comment on diplomatic
ciscussions as a matter of policy but noted that last time
U.S. officials met wih Dobrynin was several weeks ago.
Brezhnev extended his informal invitation on April 17,
as a counter to Reagan's proposal that the two men meet
in New York In June.
The Post said Reagan is expected to convey his intention to go ahedad with the summit during his discussions
in Europe next month with Western European leaders.

an uncertain future because the major industrialized nations arc not backing it.
U.S. Ambassador James. L Malone says the United
States still might endorse such a treaty if American conditions on deep-seabed mining, in which trillions of
dollars may be involved, are met before the newly
adopted pact is signed.
The Soviets and their East Bloc allies abstained when
the sea law treaty was adopted by a vole of 130-4, with
17 absenlcnlions.
Britain, Belgium, the Netherlands, 11 lay and West Germany — all invloved in seabed mining consirlitt with IW
United Slated — were among those abstaining i" I ' ' " * s
voting. Israel, Turkey and Venezuela joined Ihc
Americans in voting against the treaty.

T
hate lo mention it. but it's almost
time for the summer movie blitz
Movie distributors have two major
periods during which they unload the lion's
share of. their product on the American
public, always accompanied by hype and
hoopla. The biy one. the Christmas season,
came in with a bang and went out with a
whimper Rentals were down and reviews

Thus, the ulcer-ridden
Hollywood execs are hoping for a biy sum

supposed to like." Before you Join the
chorus of Jam lovers, listen to the album.
Which isn't always easy. The recording
quality Is horrible. I don't know If this was
purposely done to give them a "raw" sound,
but If It was, it wasn't the brightest thing to
do.
There are a couple of good tunes on this
album, actually. The Jam used good judgment In choosing the single — "A Town called Malice.'The words speak of a gloomy
English existence: "A whole street's belief In
Sunday's roast beef/gets dashed against the
Co-op/To either cut down on beer or the
kids new gear/It's a big decision In a town
called Malice." On this track the lyrics are
audible. The same can't be said of many of
the other ones. For some reason, the Jam
believes that good lyrics, sung with fervent
emotion, should be buried under Ions of
purposeless bass and noise. Trumpets, and
the occassional Weller moment of guitar
mastery are also entombed In the
cacaphony. Drowning out lyrics Is fine If
what's left Is Instrumental prowess. Indeed,
the Instrumental "Circus" allows some of the
groups musical skill to come to light, with a
nice Buckler drum solo as an example. The
Jam shows at least they're not undevlatlng In
their musical style with "The Planner Dream
Goes Wrong," a Calypso-style song with the
cheerful, sunny lyrics replaced by damp
English reality: "The dream life luxury living
was a pleasant No. 10 w h i m / B u t
somewhere down the lines of production/They left out human beings." If the
music were half as good as the lyrics, the
Jam would be stunning. Perhaps when they
perform live, the sound quality is better and
the true music can shine through. If this Is
true, then 75 percent of the criticisms of this
album can be dropped.
A criticism that can't be dropped Is not of
The Jam, but rather of the "rock snobs" who
maintain that people must love The Jam
because, well, they're critically acclaimed.
Nothing should be loved or hated unless one
has had contact with It oneself. And to those
who point to the fact th^t The Jam are
number one in England, It should be pointed
out that so were The Bay City Rollers.
After listening to the debacle of The Gift,
the prospect of listening to The Jam's companions on Polygram, The Call, seemed
downright depressing. Surprisingly, the
album titled The Call was enjoyable.
The Call Is a fairly new band that bears
watching. Consisting of Michael Been and
Tom Ferrler on guitars, Greg Freeman on
bass, and Scott Musrek on drums, The Call
Is well stocked musically. Been wrote all the
songs, and proved himself to be a writer of
unflagging Intensity. He also has a habit of
writing fervent, apocalyptic lyrics that never
seem foolish.
The album has been well-assembled. TtiJ
opening track, "War Weary World," displays
Been's vocal abilities, while the guitars and
drums have room to shine. Bassisl Freeman
apparently knows that good playing Isn't
necessarily loud. He keeps his bass subdued
when It should be, allowing It to dominate ,n
the proper time and place. On most songs,
Been sounds extremely emotional, which Ills
In with the Impassioned style of the music.
The Call displays a musical savvy which Is
rare for a band this new. "Upperblrth," the
opening cut from side two.ls a sllck.welldone
tune that sounds very American for an
English band. Some Pretenders Influence
can be seen on this song. The Call also lakes
a clear-cut anti-war stance, expeclally on
"Bandits": "How soon It's forgotten/After
the guns have ceased/Now we're cryln' lot
war/When we once cried for peace."
After being let down by the lunk packaged
and released as The Gl/t, it's refreshing lo
hear a band that Isn't musically narcissistic.
They remeber how to please the record buying audience: by not muddling the sound
quality, or delving into musical digressions. II
Been can continue his super singing style as
he does on The Call, and keep the writing
quality at the same caliber, look for The Call
to rise. As for The Jam, with continued
nonsense such as The Gift, look (or Iheir

The show opened with a piece written in
1972, titled "Clapping Music," performed by
Reich and Glen Velez. Obviously, no Instruments for this piece were needed; the
"music" consisted of two men clapping first
in unison. Reich gradually Increased his tempo while Velez remained repeating the basic
pattern throughout. Reich changed to the
same pattern with Its downbeat shifted over
one beat. Although this change Is abrupt for
the musicians (Reich says so In his "Notes on
the Music"), the fluctuations were so minute
that It was difficult to pinpoint any actual
change.
"Piano Phase," played on two marimbas,
was performed by James Preiss and Velez.
This piece, perhaps my favorite of the show,
was unique In Its intricate technicality etched
with simple beauty throughout. The piece
was a result of Reich's work In 1965 and '66
with tape recorders, the sound evolving from
the simultaneous playing of Identical loops.
Over the course of several months Reich and
Art Murphy, first working against tape loops
of themselves, then on pianos, found that
while they could not mimic the perfection of
machines, Ihey could produce a solid facsimile. And solid It was. Preiss and Velez (the
latter emerging as the most Impressive musician In the entourage} played with technical
and aesthetic precision.

London Calling
The Jam Is currently the most populai
band In Great Britain. They are also loved by
critics everywhere, which seldom accompanies mass popularity. The band that halls
from Woking, England has certainly captured Its own territory, and Is trying to make
It on this side of the ocean. Their latest
album, The Gift, throws a monkey wrench
the size of a Rolls-Royce Into their plans.
The Jam can be traced back to the punk
days of 1977, which also saw the birth of the
Clash and The Sex Pistols. They've set chart
records In England that date back to Elvis
and the Beatles. The group Is staffed by Paul
Weller on guitar, Bruce Foxton on bass, and
Rick Buckler on drums. On this record,
Steve Nlchol and Keith Thomas assist on
horns. The whole thing began 11 years ago
In high school, when Weller and Buckler used to get together to Jam. An undoubtedly
prolific group, they've released 5 albums
since 1977, and The Gift makes 6.
Many musical forces Influence them, from
Otis Redding to the Beatles to the Kinks.
More currently, they resemble the Clash on
some tracks. They're not afraid to do covers,
although none are done here. Weller, the
chief writer, writes when he Is Inspired,
which must be often, given the number of
albums. His lyrics actually mean something,
too. No one can question the lyrical quality
of this album; It's just the music that's awful.
The Jam Is a very acclaimed live band,
with Robert Palmer of the N.Y. Times calling
a performance of theirs among the best
shows he's ever seen. Given the state of this
album, that's all they have left. The Jam, like
. The Clash, is one of those.groups "you're

To Ihe Editor:
What is a referral? A referral is an action
made by a person in charge (usually an RA
or dorm director) recommending- that the
referred party take part in a Judicial Board
hearing, during which the Judicial Board
makes the appropriate recommendation —
whether the referred party should be officially referred to the Director of Residential Life. In essence, it is a disciplinary
measure. II is, I feel, a beneficial facet of
on-campus housing, providing a sense of
order and following of the rules. It is also
beneficial because the members or Judicial
Board arc fellow students, the referred party is being interviewed by his peers, and it
serves as an educational experience. But,
when a referral is made late in the year,
upon people who are knowingly suspect, 1
feel that the whole judicial process has
become a sham.
I will not delve into minute details. Let
me only suy that the suite in which I live was
having a party that ran quite late. Apparently there were some complaints by our
neighbors. Our dorm director subsequently
came up to our room and told us that our
party had to end instantly. We immediately
told everybody to leave, the music went off,
and we retired to our rooms. The party was
over. About three weeks later my roommate and I received a phone call from Ihe
dorm director, informing us that we had
been referred "for Ihe party," a charge not
covered in Student Guidelines. Let me say
righl now that this is not the first lime that,
we have been referred, and there had been a
certain animosity between ourselves and
our dorm director. But 1 have since been
told thai this referral may be based solely
upon a grudge, ridiculous as it seems.
I am nut writing this letter out of frustration or revenge (I am, as I said, moving off
campus), but out of disgust with the whole
residential disciplinary system in general.
Perhaps, in the future, a less judgmental
and less prejudiced system will be formed.

Peer Advisement
'I'u the Editor:
Based on a random survey, 74 percent of
students entering SUNYA as freshmen arcundecided or will change their major by the
time they graduate. Over half of the polled
students felt they did not ask pertinent
questions when advised. More surprisingly,
70 percent of the .students felt they had an
inadequate understanding of the courses
they chose after advisement.
Could these findings be the result of poor
CUE advisement? Wc don't think so! After
researching academic advisement from
various angles, it has come to our attention
that many students do not prepare
themselves adequately for advisement.
Could this lack of preparation and

trim
understanding of the SUNYA curriculum
be decreased with the addition of student
peer advisement; 97 percent of those polled
thought that it would in fact be beneficial.
This studcnt-pccr advisement would serve
to enhance the already existing program by
assisting in the familiarization of SUNYA
and its academic program.
Students would have the benefit of being
advised on a one-to-one student basis at
their own convenience, in an informal yet
informative atmosphere. These selected student advisors would be formally briefed
and could provide an additional dimension
to advisement through their first hand experience accumulated at SUNYA.
Although Ihe students wouldn't be professionally trained counselors, they would
provide objective and informative suggestions in regard to academic matters. Considering that 62 percent of the polled
students sought additional advice from
fellow students there is obviously a need for
a program such as this.
We feel that sludent-peer advisement
would be an invaluable asset to both Ihe
student and the already existing advisement
program.

To the r.ililur:
After four years of school at SUNYA, I
have enjoyed and beared the ups and downs
that one experiences In any school. Yet
some of the incidents and squabbles 1 have
heard in the last few weeks 1 cannot let go. I
am sick and tired of the altitude of a few
but distinct people in this school. The
selfish, till for .me, screw everybody else attitude. Don't get me wrong, it's only a few,
but a few bad apples spoil the whole bunch.
The situation that's ticking me off involves the mandatory presentation of I.D.'s
upon boarding a SUNYA bus. I don't likeit, many don't like it, but that's not my
point. Instead of using all their energy to
work for a compromise or to find reasons
for the initiation of this, a select few would
rather embark on a "spoiled brat, 1 won't
sland for it" policy. In a recent letter to the
editor (April 30), a certain individual wrole
complaining about the system, saying he
won'l stand for it, and he doesn't plan to
waste his time looking for his l.D. to show
any bus driver. Great attitude! That kind of
selfishness really gets problems solved'. If

a hello, and thank you when boarding and
exiting a bus. I always do and I've never
had trouble with a "surly" bus driver. Further, it's pointless to blame the drivers, they
arc just doing their jobs. The SUNYA bus

l.D. bus systems for some lime now. Please
don't misunderstand me! Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but it just seems to medial instead of putting all your energies into
complaining, why don't you defer litem into doing something constructive to alleviate
the problem. There are many aclivisl

view this as both a serious and viable concern.
New York State has made the possession
of chuka-sticks punishable by up to one
year of imprisonment. We are in agreementwith the strong sland which the State has
taken, and our recommended sanctions for

this. We therefore implore all students who
possess such weapons to get rid or them as
soon as possible.

Yesterday as Today
"Those National Guardsmen are not monsters, they are husbands, son, and
fathers, neighbors of yours. "
"It is really something when you see a girl lying on a strecher, her face contorted and swollen, and then, you know, they pick up this sheet and slowly lay it
over her."
welve years ago today was an important day. Four students were killed
and nine others were injured when Ohio National Guardsmen opened
fire at Kent State University.
People all over the country, already stunned by the invasion of Cambodia,
were shocked by the killings. Students at almost every university in the country
slopped classes in protest.
Kent taught this country many lessons. We learned that our government
would use violence against its privileged members, not just the poor. We learned
how quickly Ihe blame lor the killings could be passed.
T
We
learned how vital communications can be. The deaths at Kent Stale
were partly caused by a university administration unwilling to communicate
with the students.
We learned how deadly alienation and polarization can be. The federal and
state governments described the protestors as "worse than the brown-shirts and
c o m m u n i s t s . . . " By painting them as an extreme — by lying.— they rationalized their mistakes.
We learned how dangerous the "game" of protest can become. Aftci guardsmen fired tear gas canisters at protesters, the protesters and troops would toss
the metal cylinders back and forth, almost like a game. The game ended when
the canisters turned into bricks and bullets.
D i d we really learn anything from the events on Ihat spring day twelve years
ago? The country is still as closed-minded as ever. The Reagan rcgiem polarizes
the weallhy and poor in an insane reversal of Robin Hood's theme. We still
romanticize the act of protest but forget the good it can achieve and the harm il
sometimes causes.
The only to way to prevent horrors like Kent is lalk. Lots-of it. Understanding. And even more thought. We remember the past so we're not doomed to
repeat it. it's important lo understand what happened twelve years ago, twelve
months ago, and twelve days ago.

He added his notion that I here
are enough summer jobs in the Sun
Belt to accomodate
northern
students is " o n l y an impression. We
got il by reading reports, and hearing the same things everyone else
does. There's just more money
down there."
Hut at least in Houston, " t h e insulation has worn o f f " the j o b

Many "have assembly-line skills

" t h e temporary and part-time

Illinois' llechiell readily conceded
the idea is impractical lor many

why anti-nuclear weaponry sentiment should resurface this school

is with this lime the learn is hoping

consists of H i l l , Smyth, Stern, and

consistently week after week. In

Albany Slate's women's track
team competed this weekend in the
New York State A . I . A . W . Championship, better known as the Stale
meet, held at St. John's University
in New York City. It was a tough
meet against some even tougher
competition as was illustrated by St.
John's, who placed first with 124
points. However, Albany came
t h r o u g h and, with 24 points,
tied for ninth
place overall with
Barnard, out of 24 teams which
competed in the meet.
Coach Ron White was very pleased with the team's overall effort
and with the excellent individual efforts displayed by the women. In
the trials Kim Bloomer placed
fourth in lite 400-meter dash and
established a school record with
58.04 seconds. In the finals
Bloomer broke her own record o f
59.08 and ran 58.08 in the
400-meter clash which qualifies her
for the national championship on qualifying for the Nationals; when
she ran 2:18.0 In Ihe 800-meter run
May 20.
White feels thai Bloomer's im- she did indeed qualffy.

Koli continued that CAPE "should determine if President
O'Lcary's relationship with l.i-hua Yu influenced the decisions in any
way."
The motion will call for a written report of the committee's findings.
Chinese studies Professor Chen, who arrived al SUNYA in 1978,
was informed last April that she was to be dismissed at the end of
August 1982, a move indicating a sudden change in support from College of Humanities and Line Arts Dean John Shiuiiaker.
Allegations have been made that the decision was influenced by a
personal relationship between O'Leary and Li-luia Yu, another professor in the department who was dismissed by Chen in 1979. Chen
was then director of the Chinese Studies Program.
O'Leary released a statement admitting that "(in the past year) Professor Yu and I . . .have seen each other on a social basis on a number
of occassions," but denied the relationship played a role in the nonrenewal of Chen's contract or Yu's return this semester.
Yu said that she a'nd the president are "good friends," but that relationship did not affect official decisions.
Chen said she was advised that further comment on her case might
harm grievances she has filed with both the Universtiy Senate and
United University Professions (UUP), but refused to name who had
warned her.
O'Leary could not be reached for further comment on Koli's moi tion.
