If the real mark of a sports powerhouse is
not the ability to capture a championship,
but to do so again and again, then Albany
State's mens tennis team deserves to be
regarded as a veritable dynasty.
For the fourth successive year and the
sixth time in the last nine seasons, the
Danes came out on top at the annual
SUNYAC championships, held Friday and
Saturday in Rochester, taking the team title
by compiling 35 points. Runner-up
Binghamton amassed only 24.
"1 knew that our team was strong
enough! but we hadn't been playing
especially well so far this season," said
Albany coach Bob Lewis. "I fell this was
one of our strongest learns though, and we
were really able to put il all together in this
lournament. I'm very proud. We did a really good j o b . "
Thai's an undcrslalemenl indeed. The
Danes so thoroughly dominated play thai
out of the 28 matches played they won an
astonishing 27, taking all six singles lilies
and two of the three doubles events in the
process.
Playing in the first flight for Albany,
Barry Lcvine advanced to Ihe finals where
he easily disposed of Ihe University of Buffalo's Russ Tringali, 6-3, 6-3. Last year Tringali had been the tournamenls fourth seed

many of his matches prior to the tournament. But evidently the injury did not
hamper his play and Graber captured his
fourth consecutive SUNYAC championship. That tics a record, held by Paul
Feldman, formerly of Albany, who won his
four tournamenls from 1975 to 1978.
Rob Karen, a junior who had previously
won two SUNYAC championships also added another title to his list of accomplishments, but nol without a struggle.
His opponent, Binghamton's Paul Tcrzano, look the first set 6-2 and Karen was
forced to buckle down and play determined

Likewise, Albany's Dave Ulrich also encountered difficulty in his match and was

Invincibly, the Albany machine won both

SPORTS EOITOR
In a single instant Saturday afternoon on
University Field, euphoric celebration turned into devasting sorrow. With just 25
seconds left in the game, the Albany State
Great Danes were spiritually uplifted after a
dramatic comeback scoring drive had put
them in front by three points all but assuring them off a victory over the Division II
Southern Connecticut Slate College Owls.
But victory was not meant to be as the
Danes painfully witnessed Owl Steve Compitello's 89-yard kickoff return steal the victory right from under their hands, 16-13.
Ironically, the senior Owl runningback
(and team punter) ran back the second of
two Albany kickoffs after the first one was
redone because of a Dane offsides penalty.
On the second fateful kick, Dane kicker
Tom Lincoln sent a long high boot deep into Owl territory, but weak pursuit on the
left side of the field allowed Compitello
with just the help of a few blocks to scoot
down the sideline untouched for the
touchdown.
"We changed the return set-up to what
we used to do because we thought that they
(Albany) would kick it differently. But they
didn't," said Compitello. "All I thought is
to run and run and that nobody was going
to catch me."
What make this loss a heart-breaker was
that the Danes had just reclaimed Ihe lead
two players earlier. Halfback John
Dunham busted into the end zone to cap a
59-yard scoring drive that originated with
defensive back Jim Collins interception
with 2:14 left to play.
Quarterback Tom Pratt, who completed

Netmen capture fourth straight SUNYAC title
By Randy Roth
AT THE STATE
An 18 year old Colonie man was
arrested by University Police October 6 and
charged with three counts of public
lewdness occurring at the lake area behind
Indian Quad. These are three of seven
reported incidents of males exposing
themselves on the SUNYA uptown campus
since the beginning of this semester.
According to police reports, Kenneth K.
Moro of 64 Washington Ave., Colonie, exposed himself and began lo masturbate in
from of a female SUNYA student near Indian Pond on September 25. The woman
told police I hat Moro drove up tile pond
road and slepped out of his car wearing a
t-shirt and shorts, He was perspired and explained he had just competed in a track
meet. Suddenly he pulled down his shorts
and began masturbating, Police said ihe
woman immediately reported the incident,
Moro is also charged with two almost
identical incidents occurring on October 3
and 5. The descriptions of the man coincided. Moro is of medium height and build
and has brown hair and eyes, and was wearing jogging attire. Police said they were able
to identify Moro through the clear descriptions they were given.
Moro was arrested while standing alone
at the lakeside and confessed then. The arresting officers described him as "embarrassed." "Male exposcrs often seem glad
when they're caught and are usually timid
men," said a high-ranking Public Safety official. "Exposing oneself is sometimes a
symptom of a psychological problem."
Moro appeared in Albany Police Court
last Wednesday and his Irial was postponed
lo October 28. Moro faces a maximum
sentence of one year on each of the three
charges.
In what appears to police as a separate
and unrelated incident, a female SUNYA
student was walking in the Commissary
area near Fuller Road on October 6, when a

man in a car stopped to talk to her and then
allegedly exposed himself. After reporting
the license plalc number lo the Public Safely Department, "action is pending," according to Public Safety reports.
According to police statistics, exposure
episodes on campus arc reported approximately fifteen limes per year. From 1978 lo
1981, there were 52 reports of public
lewdness on campus. More exposure incidents occur during the lasl spring and early fall, while less occur during the winter.
Assistant Director of Public Safely John
Henighan and the Director of Affirmative
Action Gloria Dcsolc bolh noled lhai a
campus community with a large population
of young women may inspire lewd
behavior.
The female students involved in these
types of incidents often wait a few hours
before nqtifying the police if they choose to
notify them at all, according to police
records. Police said this makes apprehension of these offenders quite difficult.
University Police said women have had
varied behavior reactions after being involved in exposure incidents. Many were
deeply offended and very embarrassed,
others were not.
In September, Ihree female SUNYA
students reported being involved in an exposure episode but "wailed six hours
before calling the police because we felt embarrassed and we didn't know what to
say." One of the three women said "many
people wouldn't consider this a form of sexual harrassment just because there was no
verbal communication. People should
•ridcrsland that il really is harassment."
Site also emphasized "that any victims
should call the police Immediately, Don't
be afraid to appear stupid!"
Dcsolc believed "lhat incidents of males
exposing themselves is not a benign situation." She felt that women should be aware
of the many resources available, and how to
use them. She suggested self-defense
workshops for women in order to learn appropriate behavior when faced with a situation such as a male exposing himself.
"Women should feel hopeful that help is
available to (hem. They should be informed
in order to prepare themselves." She
pointed out lhat "male exposure should be
laken seriously because it can be a disturbing experience for many young women, and
can have severe consequences." She said
lhat some young women may now be hesitant to go to ihc lakeside, or even to Ihe
library. "When these incidents have an
adverse Impact on women to be studiers or
workers, then it is Ihe responsibility of the
institution lo lake action."

SA polling place lawsuit heard before court
By Beth Brinser
STAFF WHITER
SUNYA's student plaintiffs brought their lawsuit regarding SA's proposed on-campus polling place to the New
York State Supreme Court of Albany County Thursday.
The students, represented by SA attorney Mark Mishler,
are suing the Board of Elections and Election Commissioners Raymond Kinley (R) and George Scaringe (D) for
the right to vote on campus.
"I know how (the decision) should go," said Mishler,
"because the law is clearly on our side."
Judge George Cobb of Catskill is due to render a decision
within the next few days. Cobb was unavailable for comment.
SA President Mike Corso believes Cobb may be inclined
to be more objective towards the case since he is from Catskill, an area outside of the Albany area.
The suit has been brought about by SUNYA students
who are registered to vote in Albany Counly yet find il difficult to do because of the distance of polling places from
the campus.
The city division line between Albany and Uuilderland
has caused students on State and Colonial Quads lo vole in
Ward 15 of Albany's Third District, while Dulchand Indian
residents vote In the Guilderland district of Albany County.
The basis of the students.' lawsuits lies in Ihc fact lhat Ihc
Election Laws allows no more than 950 regislered voters in
a voting district.
There are 1,716 voters registered in Ward 15 and 1,015
volers in Ihe Guilderland voting district. Doth of these
figures violate the quotas.
William Conboy of ihe Albany Counly Attorney's Office
representing Ihe Board of Elections and its Commissions
said, "Our position is that Ihc time element makes it very
difficult (to do anything)."
"Any changes now," Conboy said, "might result in
substantial voter confusion and subsequent disenfranchisement."
Mishler said the defense "did nol come up with any
specific reasons why it's too late. It is our sense, it's not too
late. All they need to do is pull the cards with an address
listed as 1400 Washington Avenue."
The request for on-campus polling places is "not
necessarily consistent with the one man one vote law" said
Conboy.
Conboy continued to say thai the request "may result in
a district of 2000" voters.
However, that is nol the request. The request is for two
separate polling places for each of the two districts according to Jvlishler.
It has been noted that any election district may be
established for the convenience of ihe students. The inaccessibility of both the polling places to students has been
cited for the cause of low voter turnout in the 1981 elections.
Jeanne Buckley of Colonial Quad is a plaintiff because
this suit is supposed to guarantee students their right to
vote.
"I don't understand whal the hassle is," said Buckley,
"if il is going to encourage people to vote."
Another plaintiff is Lauren J. Waller of Dutch Quad.
She hopes Ihis suit will "set a precedent to help improve the
student voting block."
If the judge's decision is contrary lo the plaintiff's request, there will be an appeal, according to Mishler.
Mishler said thai if the appeal is nol favorable, another
suit will be filed next year ai an earlier time in the
semester,

Cuomo predicts morality
Albany, N. Y.
(AP) L l . GOV. Mario Cuomo predicted Thursday that his
gubernatorial opponent, Republican Lewis Lehrman
would soon begin a campaign that "concentrates on Moral
Majority issues."
Democrat Cuomo made the statement as he arrived at a
noon-time fund-raiser which drew hundreds o f state
workers and party faithful and may have raised as much as
$200,000 for the Cuomo campaign.
While Cuomo was busy raising money upstate, Lehrman
was trying to snare votes on Long Island with promises of a
lough line on the controversial and under-construciion
Shoreham nuclear power plant.
In Albany, the lieutenant governor said he expected the
shift in the Lehrman campaign tactics because o f criticism
of the millionaire businessman's tax-cut proposals. He

influential Republican stale senator.

has soared to its highest level in four decades during
Reagan's presidency and said his recovery program must be
changed.

" W e don't live in a bubble. The world is

SA Vice-President A n n Marie LaPorta.
This semester has been a time when they
and the rest o f SA have been telling
students that SA needs money. It is still an
open question i f the students are going to
give il to them.
SA leaders believe lhat what money there
is this year is being well-spent. When questioned about spending $5000 on an event
like Fall Fest when the cash flow is tenuous
Schneyman replied, " Y o u can't ihink o f
everything in terms o f money. You have to
be a little human with it. We're not here 10
make a profit o f f the students."
However, larger functions like Mayfest
could especially feel the crimp. The money
to pay for Mayfest would be doled out
towards the end o f Ihe spring semester, but
there may nol be as much as originally planned remaining.
" Y o u can't say Mayfest won't happen
because it has been budgeted for. But it is
going to hurt how large the function is going to b e , " LaPorta said.
LaPorta thinks that the chances o f the
referendum passing hinge on how many
students vote, which is why she guards
against sounding optimistic. " V o t e r turnout in the fall elections is very low. That's
going to hurt u s , " she said.
T o facilitate passage, the SA Central
Council passed in September a bill that
allows a majority o f those voting to pass a
referendum, instead of a minimum o f 20
percent o f Ihe registered voters affirming in
the majority. The rule was passed in reaction lo Ihe failure last year o f a nuclear
arms freeze referendum 10 pass as only 19.6
percent o f those eligible actually voted.
That referendum will also be on ihe ballot
next week.
But the biggest financial setback for SA
is something it had no control over, ihe insiallion of WATS lines al the University
for long-dislancc calls.
Previously, S U N Y A had a lie-line lhat
was o f minimal cost lo groups like SA, but
more expensive for Ihe university as a
whole. "Groups used to have free use of Ihe
lie-line bin no longer," LaPorta said. N o w
they will be charged 23 cenls a minute,
which Corso estimated will come to
"$I0-$I5,000", approximately seven percent
of the budget.

By Robert Gardinicr
A project to equip the dorms with cable television
service is being favorably considered again Ihis year by
Student Services, according to student member Murk
Sclgclstcin, But Capital Cable Manager Wayne Hall
remained wary and called S U N Y A ' s proposal " a high
risk investment lor our company when the costs are
considered."
There were problems when the cable proposal was
first presented lor a student vole in 1980, Seigclsiein
said. "Even though there was a majority In favor only
1400 students voted and 1500 voles were needed lor the
survey lo be considered adequate. The project had
been dead since t h e n , "
Sclgclstcin added that the issue Is complicated
because students would have to pay a flat role added 10
their billing, and all the students would have to pay
whether ihcy wauled the cable or not, Added to Ihis is
the administration problem or who would eolicel the
money: would it be taken from tuition, activity Ices or
resident hills? According to Sclgclstcin, " W e are not
rushing Into it this lime we are setting up a committee
with administration and plan I O canvas student opinion. Nor do we want to step on any other campus

of New York, public lewdness is
legally considered an
offense
against public sensibility. "Exposure is not a violent a c t , " commented one university police officer. According to the Penal Law,
a "sex crime," by definition, must
include physical contact.
Ilenighan emphasized that there
is an emergency phone between the
tennis courts and the lake behind
Indian Quad, as well as a phone al
the back of each parking lot. Additionally, warning .signs and an
emergency phone have been installed in the women's locker room in
the Physical Education building.
This is in response lo the many occurences of males entering the
women's locker room in past years.
Now, that problem has been
eliminated, Henighan said.
I 1
year round service and we have l o consider illegal
hook-ups and possible vandalism l o o u r equipment,"
he said. Capital Cable demands that S U N Y A pay the
monthly bill in one lump sum. The company would I
rather not deal directly with the students, said Hall.
The initial Investment by Capital Cable is not small,
according l o Charles l.aMalfa, Chief Engineer al ECC
on campus. A n estimate o f S-tOO.000 was arrived al by
the joint efforts o f ECC and the Capital Cable C o . ,
which hold exclusive franchise rights for the campus
area, l.aMalfa explained.
" I t ' s a big project and would lake .1-6 months,"he
said. " E v e r y t h i n g on the u p t o w n campus is
underground, no high wires; and the architecture o f
the dorms makes il very difficult to run lines." A cable
sen ice Input now exists al ECC, front there it is led to
the Campus Center area on request and to the Rat.
" f h e problem will be gelling il front here out to the
four lowers," l.aMalfa said.
l.aMalfa warned the cable company is going lo be
very reluctant because Siudcni Services has decided io
provide outlets for lounges only, not suiies, in order to
save money, " I he Cable people make their money on
the number o f outlets. I f only the lounges uptown tire
wiicd you're looking tit about only 50-60 outlets, With
that number its going to take them a very long time to
make up (heir initial investment,"
However, Hill Drnddock, Executive Director o f
Campus Cinema Services, feels that the studeuis may
well want the cable Installed, I le also does not feel thai
the cinema services would be stepped on by lite cable
idea. " I t will he no competition to the cinema unless
l l l i t ) is installed. H U O gels movies before the cinema
does; it would be a definite c o m p e t i t i o n . "
l.aMalfa does see an alternative to Capital Cable.
" S U N Y A could easily have their own cable service by
selling up antennas and subscribing directly to satellite
transmissions like the Holiday Inns d o . " Ill this way
the campus would save alol o f money by hedging
around the cable company. He added that there is a
large enough community o f subscribers here to make
Ihis plan feasible.
Dean o f Student Affairs Neil Drown declined to
elaborate on the issue. " I t ' s a real complicated issue
and I feel il's too early lo give my opinion until more
research is d o n e , " he commented.

A
problem all ol" us lace up here is trying to explain the role the paper plays. Our friends
will ask us from lime to explain it, and we
always keep sear chine for the perfect metaphor.
One person said that she felt the paper was like fast
food. After all. fast food is usually pretty cheap. The
ASP is free. That seemed 10 lit pretty well.
Past food is just that, fast. It doesn't lake long 10
eat. Hie ASP averages about 2A pages — about 40
percent of rt hich are ads — so it really doesn't lake 10
long to cook. We don't have much lime to prepare
each issue — only a lew days — so that seems appropriate.
Anoihei editor added ihai It's convenient. His
reasoning was thai you can find quite a few fast food
places around You can find this paper in a lot of
places - on the quads, in the Campus ('enter, in the
•academic ballings, on lite downtown. Now on
I ridays you can find n in mail* shops, restaurants,
and bars downtown.
We all agreed that fast loud satisfies iii.it craving,
bin it's 1101 really filling. Well, the ASP certainly
can't fill everyone's social, emotional, political ami
-csu.il needs, bin we do what we can wiih the lime
and resources we have. \Ve lake the edge off.
When economic limes are belter, almost anybody
can get a job Hipping burgers at a fasi loud place.
Regardless of economic limes, almost anybody can
do something "at the paper. Also, if sou really don't
like the way the hamburger lasics, you can cook'em
the way sou like when you're working there. Same
applies ai the ASP.
Some other aspect of fast food didn't sit loo well,
though, lasi food reali) isn't scry good for you.
While Ibis newspaper certuinl>. isn't an intellectual
masterpiece, il docs have it's educational purposes.
And il's a hell of a loi heller for >ou than IV.
We looked al our lisl of analogies between
food and the Albany Sli'ltleni Press. It's cheap, i
convenient, takes the edge off, and accessible,

Voting Wrongs
The arguments have been given and the
judge is making his decision. SA's suit to
establish an election district and polling
place on campus went to court yesterday,
and now it's only a lew days until we know
if students will have the polling place on
campus they legally deserve.
Last Sunday's edition of the Times-Union
carried an editorial on the topic of the oncampus polling place. It was a rather con-
descending piece that asked if these students
in the prime of life couldn't walk the one or
two miles to the present polling places. The
editorial missed the point. Election districts
are not determined by age or occupation of
the inhabitants: they are established for the
convenience of registered voters to encourage voting.
Luckily, the editorial writers of the
Times-Union do not sit on the bench of the
Albany County Court.

Autumn trees, stripped and battered, were full of wind and motion. The foggy street was silent and held the yellow moonlight in its
eerie mist. It seemed as if the light was poised upon Ihe haze, hanging with mysterious ease and parting only to let the shadows of an
occasional person walking by. Lining the sides of the street were
various houses and buildings, on this night, my eyes fixed on a
large, almost triangular shaped building. A large cross burned
through the fog. A church. A place to pray to God Standing in the
empty street, I suddenly had a tremendous desire to communicate
to some higher being, to decipher, in any small, pv even trivial way,
some philosophical aspect of being. Being fairly unfamiliar of the
church,(or any church, for that matter)! longed to understand why
we were put on this earth and why we are who we are. If there is a
God (and yes, I am frightened to think there might be one. if I don't
believe) explain all the inherent inequalities, the hatred, the fear. A
much thought of thought, of course, but still no justifiable anwswer.

s/he supposed to do if s/he gets here? Stand in the middle of Beirut
and hold up a white flag? Get Breznev, Reagan, and Khomeni

can't we seem to control things ourselves? Has God really died, as
Neltzsche has suggested, or have we merely lost him? The long list
of questions mount, and avalanche together, careening out of control. But still we wake up every morning, kill, rape, or maim another
person, and leave the questions for someone else to worry about.
Do we seek G o d , or is it the miraculous we really want? If there truly

. Not surprising; General Westmoreland
was the first to discredit "The Uncounted
Enemy;" three days after the broadcast, he
called a press conference at which he attacked Adams, declared many of his taped
statements Inoperative, maintained he had
been "ambushed" by the reporters from
CBS who never warned him exactly what
they Intended to question him about, and
said that the "notorious reporter Mike

the 68-page report was released lit July,
and conceded that the news division had
committed five substantial violations of
CBS's Journalistic ground rules.and other
lesser lapses and "judgement calls." Sauter

that as mamy as 25,000 North Vietnamese

during the fall of that year.
Such claims were hardly news; as early
as March of 1968 Nell Sheehan of The
Times offered a full account of unexplained
effdrts by the military Io hold down the
numbers. But In the CBS documentary, six
former
A r m y officers

i Westmoreland conceded he had rejected
Army Intelligence's estimates because "the
p e o p l e in W a s h i n g t o n were not
sophisticated enough to understand and
evaluate this thing-ahd neither was the
media."
The hero of the piece was former CIA
analyst Sam A. Adams, who was paid
$25,000 to research and help shape the
documentary, and who also appeared on
air as a principal witness for the conspiracy

media, along with verdicts unfavorable to
them, have proliferated consistently since

As a " p u b l i c f i g u r e , " General
Westmoreland must prove not only thai
the statements made In the documentary
were false, but also that they were made
"with malice." A 1964 landmark decision

Other disavowals would follow, but
none with the impact of a cover slory in the
May 2') TV Guide. Not known for its Investigative journalism, the magazine
published an 11 and a half page story called "Anatomy of a Smear," describing
" H o w CBS News Broke the Rules and
'Got' Gen. Westmoreland." Written by
Don Kowat and Sally Bedell, the slory
made 18 allegations against " C B S
Reports." including charges thai CBS ignored evidence that contradicted Its conspiracy theory, rehearsed the interview of a
friendly source (Adams), and grilled " u n friendly witnesses with prosecutorial zeal."
The article noted that producer Crile and
his colleagues went into the project with a
pre-concelvecl notion of what their conclusion would be, and they "demonstrated a
disconcerting tendency to consign interviewees who contradicted it to the cutting
room floor."
The CBS reaction to the TV Guide story
was to launch a six-week Internal Investigation headed by news president Sauter and
veteran producer Burton Benjamin, an all
one answer. When the general later sent
documents "correcting" his recollections
about the VC Infiltration, CBS made one of
those "judgement calls" and decided to Ignore the data.
The months following the CBS inhouse
investigation were marked by concessions
and rejections. Westmoreland had been
asking CBS for a public apology, then a <15
minute retraction, and a compensatory
payment for the harm he suffered. Sauter
rejected all of the requests, instead offering
Westmoreland 15 minutes of unedited
reaction time on an hour-long prime time
"sequel" to the documentary. The general
refused to appear on the panel-type followup. But the spector of the lawsuit made all
discussions moot, and the sequel has been
Indefinitely post-poned.
Does the general have a case? One factor working to his advantage if the fact that
his home state is South Carolina, one of
the few states, according to The Times, in
which lawyers generally concede that the
advantage Is with the plaintiff. That, coupled with the fact that libel actions against the

Yet even If CBS should win the lawsuil
the huge expense of the legal process and
possible negative public reaction miyht do
irreparable harm to the already tarnished
reputation of the press. According Io Miles
Gullingsurd, a free-lance writer and Vietnam vet quoted In a article in The Village
Voice, "the lawsuit could stifle the kind of
journalistic investigation still needed in
order for this country to come to terms with
Vletnam--and to keep It from happening
again."
Other critics of Ihe U.S.'s Involvement
take an opposite, though not contradictory, tack. According to Bob Brewin, who
writes a television column for The Voice
and Is also a vet, "In a way I'm glad thai
Westmoreland has filed his suit. If we do
refight the Vietnam War in a South
Carolina courtroom, the first casualty of the

That's not to say that, If pressed, I won'l

more effectively than In the past.
The problem is with what I've been attempting to write about. All about me 1 see
false assumptions leading to rather Idiotic
behavior on the part of some members of

I've enjoyed attempting to point out exactly

Lately, though, I've become dissatisfied
with my dissatisflcation. Perhaps I've only
been a reactionary, although I've always
tried to temper my criticisms with some
upbeat advice on how to straighten things
out.
Last week I was briefly enthused while
writing a commentary on the "Take Back
the Night" hysteria, but midway through I
stopped and realized that it was too controversial and It wouldn't do anybody any
good anyway. This week I had a nice critlque going of our relatlvlstlc curriculum, but
again 1 didn't have the heart to go through
with It.
I guess I've Just been attacking the symptoms, rather than the cause of the human
problem. Like Christ, when he saw Ihe
harlots and tax-collectors go In, and have
dinner with them rather lhan preaching at
them about what they were doing wrong.

I've always felt that losing "the Idealism

I've always disliked the common practice of
not calling a spade a spade. But I'm finding, maybe later than the rest of you, that
there Is a maturation process which
changes one's priorities. So In the future I'll

things and still be interesting. Maybe I'll

I never use the word " I " In my writing, by
the way, so I bridle slightly at whal I've just
written. I'm not at all usually prone to this
bared-soul introspection. It's really kind ol
tasteless to write about one's self, so please
realize that special circumstances forced me
to it.
Also, have you heard about the 300
million dollars the State Dormitory
Authority had invested in a firm that went
broke? Apparently only a fraction .pi lli.it
money will ever be recovered. The funds
were meant for construction of new
buildings on stale campuses, from whal I
understand.
Thai's quite a blow to the university
system, but for some reason It's gotten very
low media exposure despite the fact that
$300 million Is quite a sizable sum.

course, like most of us. still can't believe
that on top of losing his job. he will soon be
living on the slreets.
That cowboy in the White House would
• say thai the Democrats are responsible for
this mess, and that we all must stay the
course. And if Eric should find all this hard
to swallow he definitely should not engage
In the practice of removing the Republicans

F.ric was sitting on his bed when a knock
upon Ihe door brought his attention back Io
ihe present. It could only be his landlady,
for no one else would knock this early in
the day. Eric forces himself to rise up off
the bed and answer the door.
Sure
enough, it's his landlady, one Millie K. Carson.
"Hello, Ms. Carson how the hell are you
today? Since I do not have Ihe rent money
and I'm not likely to get it any time soon. I'll
be leaving sometime tomorrow. I'll slip the
keys under your door before I leave. I hope

situation. I hope. As for your leaving. I've
given ihe matter some more thought and
decided that it wouldn't serve any useful
purpose to turn you out. so to speak.'' A
smile replaces the blank expiession that
had previously blanketed her face. Her
eyes I winkle as if she hod just spoken in
some secret code that only she <\nd Eric
could understand.
"Ms. Carson let me yet ihis straight. I
don't have to move. Whal changed from
yesterday to today?" Eric's face became a
mixture of perplexities. He shifted his
weight from one leg to the other, doing a
nervous dance.
"Well Eric, it's like this. I'm not getting
any younger, so when I find something I
like. I should stick with it. I've become
rather attached to you of late, after I went
home last night and thought about it. it
seemed to me that il would be severe
dislocation for you tit present to leave
Which is my rather long winded way ol
s,lying that I love you and wanl to marry
you
"That's certainly putting all the cards on
the table. I get a place to stay and you get
all Ihe companionship you need I'm not
in much of a position Io argue so I guess I'll
have to accept your gracious and
magnanimous offer. Thank you very much
for thinking of me,"His mind twists and
turns trying to figure out exactly what has
happened and more to the point. Eric
begins to wonder what II is he gotten
himself involved on this time.
"Eric, I think we should get one thing
!
"Thai sounds great to me. Are there any
hidden clauses to'thls contract that I should
know about. Millie?"-Eric's stomach turned
and churned as if the Rams and the
Falcons were playing for the Super Bowl
championship.
"Don't he silly. Eric. I'm not about to tell
you if there are any. Let me assure you that
I've told you all you will have.to know.to
fulfill your patt of the bargain Perhaps you
would appreciate some additional time to
more f u l l ; understand exactly what the
terms of this contract commit you to?"
From Ihe inflection of her voice it was clear
that although the overall tone was one of ;
calm, this lady had laid all her marbles
upon the table and was not about to take
no for an answer
"There won'l be any need for that extra ;
time I've already made up my mind. It's a
deal :f von ,ne Mill interested." Eric knew
full well th.it now was not the time to be
overly concerned with the crossing of the
t's and the dotting of the i's. In the words of
an old Woody Allen movie "Take the
Money and Run."
As you can see by now. Eric's troubles
have come and gone only to be replaced ;
with worries of a much different sort. In a
world that say to you; Survive! I guess Eric
can be counted as one of the luckier people. Only time will be able to tell for sure if
Eric has all the cards In his favor. What
about this Millie Carson? She can't think
she can get away with owning a man, does
she? Life has always been stranger than fiction, so I guess it's not so strange after
all...

Director William A Leone stresses ihe
ritualistic elements of Shaffer's play from
the beginning, when the actors file in and
take their seals It is ai once ritualistic and
theatrical, The effect is heightened by Rich
Keperberg's choreography of the horses
who form ihe center of Alan Strang's worship.
Peter Bennett delivers an outsl.Hiding
performance as Martin Dysart. the
psychiatrist lorn between "curing" Alan or
leaving him to his passion, painful though II
may be. Bennett unifies the play through
his relationship to the other characters. The
; character of Dysart is the nucleus of Equus,
similarly. Bennett is the nucleus of the cast,
drawing a fine performance from each actor.
In contrast to Dysait's controlled exterior. Brian McNamara's Alan Strang Is all
raw emotion and nerve. He is by turns
taciturn and taunting, baiting Dysart with
both his silence and his outbursts. As a
result, the exchanges between the two are
electric. Through McNamara's visceral performance, one experiences Alan's anguish
and ecstasy.
Mary McCormlck delivers a strong performance as Jill Mason, the girl who is
essentially Alan's link to the horses and the
catalyst for his blinding them. Although
her British accent is occasionally weak. It
does not detract from her portrayal of a girl
who Is healthy and happy without being
entirely devoid of passion. McCormlck Is
entirely at ease and confident on stage. In
contrast to McNamara's nervous tension.
As Alan's parents. Frank and Dora
Strang. Jerome Hanley and Maud
Hamilton Pantaleonl are well matched.
Hanley conveys the essence of the redfaced working class Englishman, bitter In
his disillusionment with society as embodied in church, state, and media.
Panteleonl's Dora provides a fragile contrast; at the same time, however, she
displays quiet strength mixed with despair
which culminates in confrontations with
both Alan annd Dysart Frank Strang contributes to Alan's fear through his basically
authoritarian treatment, while Dora's
religious teaching provides the basis for
Alan's ritualistic worship. Yet neither
character can be held responsible for Alan's
actions. Hanley and Panteleonl portray
confused and weak human beings whose
love for their child Is undoubtedly genuine,
if perhaps misdirected. They are not
without sensitivity.
Joyce Strolle is excellent as Hester
Salomon, the magistrate who brings Alan
to Dysart for treatment. Strolle's Hesther is
warm and well-meaning; she cannot com-
lisound sr. vtelon 19a

prehend Dysort's agony because her objective concerning Alan is different. She wants
lo see him well and adjusted to society: her
concern Is real.

"Wow, like I can't dig your hostilities
in. Bad ulbes. You're going lo screw up

i Dead. I don't care."
Each character brings his or her own
perspective to the concept of normalcy,
and the relatively minor characters are no
exception. Harry Dalton. played by Martin
A. Blanco, is the stable owner whose
horses Alan lias blinded I le views Alan as
some kind of monster who should be locked up: Ins perspective is necessarily biased
against Alan by his personal loss. Blanco
gives a solid performance as Dalton. As the
Nurse, who remains nameless throughout
Ihe j)lay. Ilildy Linn is almost completely
non-judgemental Alan is simply another
patient to be cared for. and Linn fulfills the
Nurse's function briskly and ably. She
tends to Alan's needs, repoits anything
unusual to Dysart. and comforts Alan
when he is frightened.
The horses, portrayed by Kory Scott
Healy. Jack Alvo, Eric A, Jhanjl, Timothy
Matthew Rellschneider. Ken Hlzzo and
Jamie Sarnicola. are breathtaking. They
walk upright, wearing stylized horse masks
and hooves, symbolizing Alan's horseman-god Equus, The ritual of donning ihe
masks is silient. but effective; ihey move
with the solemn synchronization of a drill

characteristics superbly; when Jill carries

Rory Scott Healy's upper body tenses and
quivers with the pleasure of being groomed. Healy Is also amusing as the Horseman
who gives Alan his first horseback ride.
Finally, when Alan reenacts the blinding,
the grotesque ballet of Ihe wounded
.num.ils is riveting.
The set by Robert T. Donnelly Is spare
and purely functional and follows the
specifications set by Shaffer. Donnelly is
also responsible for the extremely effective
lighting. The costumes were designed by
A m y Koplow: like Ihe set. they are functional and effective, yet striking. In addition, director Leone departs from the traditional proscenium stage and surrounds the
platform with tiers of seats. Intensifying
Alan's sense of constantly being watched.
Please he advised that there is nudity
featured in the play which is integral to one
scene. The nudity, which involves the
characters portrayed by McNamara and
McCormlck . is maturely and tastefully
handled However. If you are offended by
nudity on stage, then think about your
decision lo see the play.
The entire cast and production staff is to

In Peter Shaffer's "Equus" presents the
center theme of his conflict.
Donna MacMillan
Artist In residence Peter Bennett portrays
the psychiatrist who Is faced with the difficult task of treating the boy Alan Strang in
SUNYA's production of "Equus." Mr.
Bennett Is an alumnus of SUNYA. completing a BA In English and an MA in
P s y c h o l o g y . He was a practicing
psychologist for several years. He has
directed n u m e r o u s p r o d u c t i o n s at
SUNYA. such as "Endgame". "Godspell",
"The First Barefoot Dancer", and "Boys in
Ihe Band" In addition to his multifaceled
career as an actor and director.
I had Ihe opportunity to talk lo Mr. Bennett about his role as Dysart. He views
Dysart as an increasingly disillusioned
psychiatrist who is not content with what
therapy does (or people. Dysart cannot
create Passion; he can only destroy It.
Dysart's conflict lies In the dilemma of
treating Alan, who has a form of worship
Dysart has never known. He can remove
Alan's pain, but only at Ihe cost of of Alan's
sense of worship. Dysart's dilemma Is also
his responsibility. He Is unhappy with his
decision to take away Alan's pain because
he must also destroy Alan's Passion.
Brian McNarnara. who portrays the
young boy who has blinded six horses In
the stable where he works, was also present at Ihe interview. He sees Dysarl's
responsibility from the pers|)ectlve of those
who placed Alan In Dysart's care, Alan
thinks that Dysart has to make him Normal;
he feels he has not other choice,
Mr
McNamara agrees wllh Mr.
Bennett's feelings on the concept of 'normalcy ' "Remember . Dysart says It is 'ihe
Average made lethal', " said Mr. Bennett.
"Dysari doesn't know wh.it 'normal' is But
he doesn't want children to become
automatons patterned after a cardboard
standard A heallhy |ierson is happy with
his life, productive on his work, ha|i|sy with,
his sexuality, capable of intimacy and
enthusiasm -he is capable of galloping. He
Is not a |irlnlout of what is an average |ierson, many of whom are unhappy."
Jecllve.The statement of trie play Is
threatening lo the profession and I don't
find them very valid, I think a lot of
humanistic and existentialist approaches to
counseling would endorse the (play's)
statement."
As the director of the play, William A.
Leone offers other Insight Into Dysart and
"Equus." When asked why he chose
"Equus", he responded that it Is one of the
most theatrical plays In existence, and
compared It on some levels to Greek
drama.
"It's a play that really speaks to today,
not In cliche terms, but In particular with
the computerization, industrialization and
dehumanlzatlon of people . It's one of the
few times these Issues are addressed In
human terms."
Mr. Leone feels Ihe play is about passion
and Instinct vs. Ihe normal and conforming
to something which Is not the Individual but
rather Ihe mass. Alan's pain is his own
pain, and the doctor Is trying to take il
away. Mr. Leone views the normal as being quiet, not speaking out, not having individual expression of spirit. This Interpretation of what is normal dramatizes
Dysart's character; externally, he Is "normal," while Internally he struggles wllh his
conflicting passions and sense of duly.
Dysart knows thai he will never gallop.
Mr. Leone sees "Equus" as being
primarily Dysart's play, with the character
of Alan serving as a catalyst. Dysart's passion is cerebral, not visceral. He is bitler
over his need lo take away the unique expressions of self. His pain lies in his feeling
that he Is striking at heads In the dark. In
Ihe end. he Is brought face to face with Ihe
empty success of his own technical skills.
He replaces passion with nothing; he
transforms Alan Into another faceless
number, a member o l the crowd,
Other SUNYA productions lo Mr.
Leone's credit are "Ashes," "The Private
Ear" and " A Funny Thing Happened on
Ihe Way to the Forum." Certainly nothing
could be farther from the llghlhearted
mayhem of "Forum" than the complexities
of "Equus". With "Forum"; Mr Leone
began with a precise external construct
which coalesced into the musical.
"Equus", on Ihe other hand, developed
from Ihe Inside out. starting as an idea, a
nugget from which Ihe relationship between the characters, particularly Dysart

§ The stage was huge and fronted by the
three letters which spell the group's name.
The lower portion of Ihe " H " hosled the
performance while Ihe upper portion held
a massive screen displaying an in-time
video of the concert. The screen acted as a
giant binocular and was a great asset lo Ihe
more remote viewers. (In Ihe future, more
and more large attractions will probably
utilize the same concept).
The following portion of the show was
dominated by songs from "It's Hard." The
Who's new LP, The album Is good fortunately more reminiscent of the old Who
craftmanshlp than their previous sludlo
release, "Face Dances." In concert, the
album's title track Included Daltrey on
rhythm guitar; a rare sight. "Cry If You
Want" was surprisingly one of the more In-
dulgently performed numbers of the evening. However, and rightly so, It was obvious that the audience would have been
more content with additional Who classics.
During "Behind Blue Eyes." the feeling
you had to possess as the audience sang
along, "Bui my dreams. Ihey aren't as
empty as my conscience seems lo b c / l
have hours, only lonely/My love Is
vengeance, that's never free," was absolutely overwhelming.
Prior to this tune, In order to symbolize
their friendship. Townshend strolled over
and kissed Daltrey on the cheek. Unfriendly incldentes In previous years, culminating
with an onstage confrontation between the
two, received considerable attention from
the rock press. Since then. Townshend has
reformed from alcoholism, (although their
disagreements weren't only Townshend
prevoked) and, of late their relationship
has been more stable.
When Ihe group sang"Hope I die before
I get o l d , " within "My Generation," you
had to question their credibility. The Who
are old; at least in terms of rock bands.
They've been singing that same old line
since 1965 when It was the inspiring anthem of British and American youth. They
do however, 18 years and 16 albums later,
realize this. In fact, Daltrey referred to The
Who as "dinosaurs" in a recent M T V Interview,
. . .
This concert tour.which as expected, is
selling seats swiftly and grossing enormous
revenues Is being billed as The Who's "first
farewell tour." According to the band, this
translates Into meaning that Ihey will continue to record, and perform occasionally
but not for extended periods of time.
As the evening built momentum, drumer
Kenny Jones and Ihe sometimes overlooked but extremely talented bassist, John
Entwhlstle, provided tight and Intricate
rhylhyms for Ihe band lo consistently
generate one great song after another
amazing song.
A powerful "Who Are Y o u " preceded a
"Pluball Wizard/See Me. Feel Me/Listening To Y o u " medley, from their rock opera
" T o m m y " , which built Into a dramatic
crescendo. Two songs from The Who's
most cerebral album "Quadrophenia"
followed, " 5 : 1 5 " and "Love, Reign O'er
Me.'"Next, "Long Live Rock" conveyed its
message.
As If all this wasn't enough, the opening
synthesizer ilfl of "Won't Gel Fooled
Again"broke out in the stadium. Although
this masterpiece Is drastically overplayed
on album radio, Its spiralling Instrumentation which gradually builds up to Ihe emotionally poignant, singular Daltrey scream

Megan Gray Taylor
In his llfe'ime. Antonio Snlierl was an es
tremely successful composer. who was
financially and critically rewarded.
respected and admired Today he is a
forgotten man. Shaffer has now exumed
j him. and reminded the world thai Salieri
had Ihe dubious honor of being the man
, who may, or may not have, murdered one
of the world's greatest composers.
I Wolfgang Amadeus Mozarl. Salieri was not
j only court composer under Joseph II of
] Austria but was also a prominent teacher
i numbering among his pupils. Beethoven.
Schubert. Liszt and Mozart's own son. He
j was a student of f i l m It and although his
| music was very popular In his lifetime II Is
! all but forgotten today
Rumor has it that Salieri poisoned
Mozart out ol jealousy over Ihe gift of
genius that God had bestowed on Mozart
and not on him. Salieri. It was believed,
recognized his own mediocrity next to
Mozart's extraordinary genius, and the
. reality drove him to madness, Many felt
that Salieri had contributed to Mozart's
death before his 36th birthday not literally,
but figuratively, through Intrigue, by
depriving him of lucrative work that might
have stemmed Ihe dire poverty In which he
ended his life.
Mozart is considered to be one ol the
greatest musical geniuses of all time. With
Joseph Hayden, he was the leading composer of what is called the classical period
in music. His over 600 works include
numerous sonatas, concertl and operas includl g The Magic Flute. The Marriage of
Figaro and considered by some to be ihe
greatest opera ever written Don Gtouawtf.
Mozart was a child prodigy. Born to a
Saltzburg musician (Leopold Mozarl) he
was playing ihe Harpsichord by 4 . composing minuets at 5 and by 6 was touring
the courts of Europe.
The applause, praise and security of his
childhood success did not prepare Mozart
for the realities of finding patronage and acceptance at court. Shaffer here suggests a
man's mortal genius may have little or
nothing to do with his mortal character.
Shaffer portrays Mozart as the eternal
adolescent, a foul-mouthed child w h o is
vain, openly critical of the courtiers and
collegues he should try to accomodate, a
man who mak'es enemies of those he
should seek out as friends, but at the same
time a man who can create music that appears to come straight from G o d . The
dichotomy between the baseness of the
real man and the majesty of his creative gill
is the basis of the conflicts in the play. It is
this realization that sets the mind of the protagonist
Salieri. to work, plotting lo
avenge a cruel God who .has played such
a'-, unforglveable trick. Salieri. who has
dedicated his life lo decency and
goodness, sees the gift of genius bestowed
on Mozart as Ihe ulllmate cruelty of an uncaring God and plots his revenge against
God through Mozarl. The Irony of Mozart's
gift Is heightened for Salieri by his middle
name, Amadeus which means Beloved of
God and throughout the play Salieri uses
this name with a distaste that Is like salt In a
wound.
The slovenly, childish, crude, brilliant,
tender, pathetic Mozart was played by
Peter Crook. Crook, a graduate of Julllard
had some difficulty with the first act Mozart,
one who Is brash and openly disrespectful
in his excessive respect and attention lo
those In power. His arrogance about his
own genius lacked some of ihe Ingenuousness necessary to make It
believable. The acting was a bit selfconscious. But In the second act, Mr,
Crook came into his own and as the slowly
deteriorating boy, driven to poverty and
madness he was excellent. The final scenes
of confrontation with his tormentor Sailed,
where Mozart lapses and believes him lo be
his deceased father were superb.
The star of this play is without question j
Dan Davis as Salieri. The role requires the
actor to be on stage throughout the entire 2
plus hour performance. It Is not only a role
' requiring the maximum acting finesse but
also professional stamina. Both seemed
within easy grasp for Davis. Davis, whose
face Is familar lo many from his role in
Texas as Eliot Carringlon. has long been a
veteran of the theater. His performance of
Hamlet in Los Angeles drew such praise
that he was compared to Olivier and
Glelgud and found equal to Ihe comparison. Of his role In /Amadeus Davis said
"Salieri has made a bargain with God (he
will live a good and moral life if God gives
him talent). Salieri has lived up to his part,
but God hasn't. He is going to get even."
Mozart married Constanze Weber, who
was played by Tanya Pushklne, Ms.
Pushklne. although competent in her performance, lacked Ihe spark of fun
necessary In the early scenes of the play
and also was somewhat over her head In
the final dramatic scenes of Mozart's death.
The other casts members which Included
Philip Pleasants (a member of the original
broadway cast) as Joseph I I . the patronizingly Ignorant emperor of Austria, was
wonderful.
Proctors claims to be "just off broadway"
and If this production is an example (and
I'm convinced It Is) of the quality of theater
there, their slogan Is very accurate. I had
the chance to see /Amadeus with Its original
broadway cast In New York and found little
lacking In this national touring company's
performance. The set design and costuming where the same and just as Impressive
as the first lime I saw them. Throughout the
play Mozart's music ebbs and flows gripping the heart and soothing the soul. Roger
William's direction was faultless.
Proctors Is within easy commuting
distance for students and their upcoming
schedule Includes such hits as Barnum,
Oliver and I'm Getting Mu Act Together
and Taking It On The Road. The theater
has offered to make half-price tickets

rock slar/dlclalor hurling Ihe question at
the crowd: "So ya/thought ya/mlght like
to go lo Ihe show/to feel Ihe warm thrill of
confusion/that space cadet glow?" (from
In The Flesh). Geldof, who might most
recently be remembered as one of the
featured artists on Ihe Secret Policeman s
Ball album, one with such other rock greats
as Sting and Phil Collins, plays Pink the
character Impeccably. He blends a savvy
sympathy for the strung out with a festering
undercurrent of self-pity and malcontent, I
don't agree with the slar/dlclalor Image,
but II Is a good opening for the flashbacks
ol Pink Ihe boy yiowing up under Ihe
shadow of a father lost lo the war.
War's elfecl on Pink lightens with maturity While Another Brick in the Wall, Fart I
is playing. Pink is trying on his father's
uniform, tiltlny the cap just right, standing
at attention, while the mirror's reflection is
first his own and then that of his father yoing into battle,
The first half of The Wall is visually and
emotionally stunning. It's not all beautiful,
by any means, and if you have a queasy
stomach then look the other way for the
school children and Ihe meal grinder
scene. Violence is meant to shock some
sense Inlo the audience and II will. But the
secret Is that you're all safe in your seats
and can rebound from it. Pink doesn't.
There's a long and touching segment in the
flrsl half of Pink, ihe man handling rejection from his wife/lover. For anyone who
has ever been in a relationship lhal has
died, your heart will go out for the way it
shatters Pink. To me. although admittedly
a hopeless romantic, Ihe entire handling of
the rejection finally pin up the lasl bricks
to his emotional wall was the best pari of
the film. It could be cut out and stand on its
own.
Unfortunately. Ihe same cannol be said
for Ihe second half of the movie. Up until
the already much-mentioned shaving
scene, where Geldof emerges like a cross
between Jesus crucified and a reptile, It
holds on to Its blllng edge. But once the
managers and the establishment try to
revive him and hurl him back on stage, the.
I movie's entire rhythm collapses. I fail lo see
J ihe correlation between rock stardom and i
( fascism, and poor Pink, who is left liuddled
around a backstage toilet bowl desperately
trying to remember his lyrics looks more j
ridiculous than pitiful. When he reaches in- '
to the toilet water to cool off the DT's he's 1
going through, you can't help but be overcome more with tevulsion than understanding,
I was left with ihe impression lhal Ihe
movie was finished in a hurry. That all the
time and precision ihat went Into constructing the first half was thrown to the wind In
the second. The first half's animation was
eerie, smooth, and slickly interwoven. The
lasl couple looked like they were done by
someone Walt Disney would only pay
under the table. While as Pink the dictator,
he leads the audience through a group effort of Nazian salutes thai come off looking
more like Gladys Knight and the Pips in
rehearsal. They just don't make extras like
they used to anymore.
But. if for half the time you're willing to be
carried away with a developing storyline, to
slide along the colours of some wildly
varied animation, and lo see some of the
album's best cuts turned Into flesh and
blood (almost literally). then see The Wall.
For the price of a movie ticket (with student
discount) you won't regret watching Geldof
release a tide of emotions and some real
flip sides to Pink's personality. I know that
there have been alol of bad reviews about
The Wall, but If you're under 25 and ever

'Tooles Year
P
eter O'Toole is back and belter
than ever! The new Bvooksfilm.
My Favorite Year stars O'Toole
as a famous swashbuckler (Allan Swan)
gone lush. Scheduled lo appear on a T V
comedy show he is assigned a babysitter the youngest of the show's comedy writers
(Mark Linn-Baker).
Megan Gray Taylor
The acting is nothing short of superb.
Baker, in his first major role, has the perfect
timing and ethnic flavor of a veteran standup comic at Grossingers. and his talent
goes further, showing the seed of real
dramatic potential. O'Toole. here, has
brought together the comic finesse of his
film The Great Catherine and the brilliant
dramatic characterization of Lawrence of
Arabia. He is louchingly sad as the "studio
creation", witty and tender as the man who
finds a comrade in young Stone. Swan at
one point, talking about the difficulty of doing a live comedy show quotes Edmund
Kean. the great Shakespearean actor who
said on his deathbed "Dying is easy, comedy is hard". O'Toole and company make
it look easy.
Joseph Bologna plays the comedy show
host. King, a frenetic Sid Ceasar type, His
performsne includes the exportable slap
stick but develops <• real person who
although a little crazy and pot to bright is
brave and lovable. The supporting cast
which includes Bill Macy. Jessica Harper,
Lalnle Kazan and Cameron Mitchell are as
good us their names are famous.
Kazan plays Ihe young writer's mother
who Is now married to a Phlliplno fighter
and lives in Bayside Queens.
She is
brilliant as the perfect "Jewish Mother"
berating her son for changing his name
from Steinberg to Stone and when Swan
comes lo their house for dinner calls him
Swariny {like the river) and tells him he
should have a family. These are some of
the funniest scenes I have ever seen.
The heart of lliis film's success is the
Steinberg - Polumbo screenplay, Their
characters are well developed, the plot
tight, the humor dry but upfront and
balanced by real interaction that leaves you
feeling like you jusl had dinner with some
old friends.
My Favorite Year marks Richard Benjamlns's directorial debut, and o h , what a
beginning. He has learned from his own
comedy acting background Ihe importance
of liming. Humor has to flow like conversation and Benjamin has paced every line,
every scene to perfection - to get away
with some of the overused metaphors in
the film il had to be. And perhaps that's the
best example of his success. When Aunt
Sophia comes late to dinner you know
she's going to look awful (dressed to meet
ihe star) but It works.
Unconditionally, this is one of the best
films I've seen this year. For O'Toole fans,
there is no need to talk you into seeing this
film. O'Toole's last film The Stuntman gave
us visual evidence of the stars personal battle with the boltle. Many including myself
thought we'd seen the lasl of him. Perhaps
that's why his portrayal of this aging star
with the same problem Is so very good.
Personal experience Is often Ihe best
teacher. O'Toole is thinner, but no less
elegant than he was In his film debut Lawrence.
This film is genuine enterlainment. a
combination period piece (set in 1954 with
altendenl costumes and sets), Mel Brooks
lype comedy, and touching story of real
people. There Is a rumor that Ihe story line
of this film is based on the real story of Erroi
Plynn. who In the same situation was
assigned a young comedy writer to keep
him sober, ihat writer was none other lhan
Mel Brooks, The film carries a disclaimer as
lo any relation to real people, but given the
facl tint Brooksfllms is the production
company, 1 have my doubts.
True or nut, don'l miss this one It's my
favorite comedy film <»f ihlsyear.

Linda Quinn
T o the Keillor:
I don't fool thai I said anything wrong in my interview
with Tori Ktiplowllz, I also Tool that Ms. Kaplmvit/ luuullcd
the story with it lot of compassion and a real ullcttipt ill
fairness. If, however, Dean Brown, Middle Faith, Campus
Security, and other offices on campus wouldn't talk lo Ms.
Knplowii/ or didn't say whin they wanted to when they
talked 10 her, it is in no way her responsibility or mine. O f
course. I'm talking about the article in the September 24ih
edition of the ASP entitled "Raped Woman finds Utile
University Support,"
I was sorry to see that Middle Earth felt that it was being
aliacked. I'm the first to admit I lull Middle Earth is a good
agency that does help a lot o f people and would help more
if more people went to them, However, through some son
of oversight that could have happened to anyone, they
handled rfiy ease badly.
Although Dean Drown was very supportive of me on a
personal level, ho seemed to imply in his loner lo the ediioi
that we are on opposing sides. I don't feel I lull tills is accurate. I agreed with many o f the things that ho said in his
loner and I hope that ho agrees with me thai rape is a terrible thing and that the university should lake a strong stand
Generally, i f Security was more compassionate l o rape
victims and i f the infirmary actually was willing to give aid
to rape victims, long after the event like they say they aio.
and Middle Earth had some counselors trained lo deal exclusively with rape, it would make things easier lor uipe v icllms,
In my opinion, the university is not completely lo blame
for trying to downplay the problem of rape on campus, II
more rape victims reported their rapes lo Seciuily, the Infirmary, or Middle Earth, it would bo bettor for them and ii
would also show the University Administration lluil ittpo
occurs on campus enough lo warrant ils being given more
attention.
I was told that I couldn't press charges against my attacker in criminal court because of the lime that elapsed
between the Incident and the lime thin I made out the police
report, I also found oui since then thai if I had made out
the icpori right after the attack, the District Attorney probably would have pressed charges, and presumably, since if
justice is done the guilty are punished, my attacker would
have ended up in jail. Since this is the ease and because of
what wont on in the judicial hearing, I can't mulct stand
,,hovv my attacker could have only been given probation instead of being dismissed from school. I think tltut whai ho
did to mo was a little worse than plagiarism.
Since the stories about me in the ASP have appeared and
llie ensuing letters to the editor have appeared, many people have boon harassing me because they fool that i f the
school didn't dismiss my attacker, that the school mtisl
consider him not to bo at fault. According to Ibis theory,
they feel that I did a bad thing by " f a l s e l y " accusing my attacker o f rape. In other words, even though my attacker is
the one that hurt mo, many people fool that I should be the
one to be punished.

To the [Cditor:
This letter is a response lo Robert Maniniano's column
of Friday, October S, tilled " T h e feminist political game."
Martiniano accuses feminists of alienating feminist men. I
would like lo respond as a man who considers himself a
feminist,
Maniniano's political game seems lo bo filling his article
with damning statements which are completely unsubstantiated, but which are presented as fact, For example: " flic
Black movements of the sixties failed..." Is this line'.' Do
we Mill have segregated lunch counters, watci fountains,
rostrooms, colleges? Have there not been gioss changes in
the legal system to attempt to bring black people opportunities that lltey had previously been denied? O f course,
no one would claim thai all discrimination has disappeared,
thai all injustices have boon corrected, bill did the civil
rights movement really " f a i l " ? I don't think so.
Martiniano says: " W o m e n (of the feminist movement)
are alienating the group of men who really believe in the
feminist cause..." <\ny substantiation offered? None.
Allow me lo offer sonic points to refute, fhc lurgesl
feminist organization in the country, the National
Organization lor Women, lias always allowed and encouraged the participation of men. I have belonged lo
NOW for ten years and never fell alienated in the slightest,
At its national convention kisi weekend there wore a large
number o f male delegates, including at least one male from
inn own Albany chapter, I don't think ho feels alienated
cither, flic fact thai so main men participate acliyel) in
NOW indicates a uue lack of alienation!
Who are these men who feel alienated? And just who are
these women who are alienating? Martiniano does not iden
lil'y eiihei group, although we ma) nssiin e dial ho himself
feels alienated, Yet wo are at a loss to understand why, even
after reading his lengthy column, l i e makes the valid point
lhal men can be (and should be) pan of the feminist
political force. "Exclusion in Ibis process only limits the
movement," he says. I agree, and dial's why I am glad we
arc not excluded. From what have vou been excluded, M r .
Man mi,ino?
Mr. Martiniano says: " these women . . . are plavlng the
suae antkiitaicd games the patriarchs ill' the soclol) a r c , "
vol he never Identifies any o f these games, and I unial a loss
lo understand whal he means, I eaitnol even begin Id aigiie
when there is no substance will) which to disagree. He talks
about only one issue: violence. In this contest, he makes
the generall/ations that " O n e cunnot defeat lite enemy using the enemy's luetics without becoming oneol l i t e m " and
"Violence becomes a perpetuating cycle." Although these
loiiv goucrull/ullons may indeed he uue, such winds do not
do much for the woman alone on the street being attacked
In a man twice her si/e. I abhor violence as well, hut I ihink
I'd rather be skilled in self-defense llttiti be taped. I here is
eel taints a difference on a moral level between selfpreservation and general violence. I oliv gcnerall/ulions
siiunlv do not account for an individual woman's problems
on a dark, deserted street,
What I ihink is most dtingcrous uhoui Mr. Maniniano's
column is lhat ho buses his entire sol nl thoughts on
picmiscs thai ho does not substantiate in mi) way, I he
careless reader might he templed to accept as a tact lhal
" m e n are being alienated from lite feminist movement bv
the feminists." NOT T R U E ! A n d the olhei d.uigct is ihe
age-old one of ovcr-gcnerull/lng about a group in political
movement and making lhal movomoni iuni a single cmiiv
wiih a single thought, Reading ihU column, one would got
Ihe idea lhal all feminists are the same, thai the) all believe
in ihe same things, lhal they all snuggle in die same vviiu,
One would read lhal Ihe civil rieliis inovenioill was a single
until) with one viewpoint (did King agiee with Sovvton.'i,
One would lead thai all feminist men ate being alienated bv
ibis one single politic of the Amcilcan feminist woman. It's
all rubbish, Ihe feminist movement is many tilings: n \ in
credibly diverse, as is every political movement. II M i .
Mailinittno has fell alienated by specific ihlitgs in specific
wavs, I wish he would loll us of lhat, and not brand an entire movement of women A N D men as he doe-.
I must oiler one final point: lie ask-: " W h v should I as a
male support a non-male oriented politkal movement?"
He then dismissed outright Ihe possibility lhal a "deep
sense o f whal is political!) and initially tight in w r o n g " Is a
jiistilication. I can hardly ihink o f a bellet one! It i\ possible lo believe in some son of order, ami that tacisiu, >cv-ism, ageism, and other forms of hate ate iusi plain tvrnng.
Although I ihink there arc plenty o f direct benefits lor men
•In the femlnisl movement, the overall force guiding me is
lhat discrimination is just wrong 1 Racism is wrong! Whv
can't it be lhal simple?

Central Council Candidate State Quad
There are lots of things I could say in this space but the most important thing
I can do(l think) is to tell you all how I feel about this election and let you
decide for yourselves.
Each quad gets four seats on the Central Council, three of State's seats are
now filled, none are held by Freshmen. Let's face it: State is the Freshman
Quad. We have to send a strong voice to the Central Council, someone who
understands our views and needs. I would very much like to be that voice.
If you agree with what I'm saying then I want you to help me show the
Student Association that Freshmen really are aware of what's going on
politically at SUNYA

Women booters frustrated in Manhattanvilletie
By Dan Corsl
Although pulling forth a fine effort last Wednesday against
Manhaitanville, the women's varsity soccer team could only salvage a
2-2 lie. Coach Amy Kidder said the
contest' was "very frustrating,
especially when we dominated most
of the second half."
After a slow start, the Dane
boolers managed lo score the lone
goal of Ihe first hair. With 14:30 left
in the half, a phenomenal score was
made off a head shot by Dee Marfe.
Lisa France had the assist in what
was the first goal ever headed in by
an Albany State woman soccer
player.
Twelve minutes into the second
half, Manhallanvillc evened Ihe
game with a direct kick by Sylvie
Madson. "A nice shot," goallender
Cathy Rosso remarked.
The Danes created most of the
action throughout the half and did
gel many shots but none thai scored
easily. "An excellent goalie," said
Kidder, "We were just missing by
inches."
About fifteen minutes imo ihe second half the Danes started to click.
Their offensive maneuvers were
beginning lo flow. Albany was
breaking through the opponents
lines, bul was unable lo capitalize at
the right times.
Approximately 22 minutes inlo
the half, Manhallanvillc scored a
direct kick that put them ahead 2-1.
This time it was Robin Murello with
the goal. The score forced the
Danes lo play catch-up ball.
"We played good, hard team-ball
to gel the goal that was needed,"
said Coach Kidder. The Dane score
finally came with three minutes left
in Ihe game. Sue Slagel assisted
Marfe with her second goal. The
penetration ended there as both
teams were unable to score in the
two overtimes.
The Danes had 28 shols on goal
with 6 saves, while Manhattan had
10 shols with 16 saves.
"The kids are young bul I can see
they're coming around very quickly," Coach Kidder said enthusiastically. "They hung in there;
down to the wire and that shows a
team's good character. What we
needed was a little more luck with
the close shots."
"It's belter than losing, but very
frustrating; as we dominated most
of Ihe game," was France's assessment of the game.
This Saturday the boolers clash
with their strongest compelilor, the
New York Stale number one ranked
University of Rochester. The Danes
record is now 5-1-2.
"I know we're gonna give them a
lough bailie this time, we want it,"
exclaimed Rosso. The game starts
at 4:00 pm at home.

Spikers triumph
over Union
under stress

The Albany women's volleyball
team won a decisive victory over
Union College last Tuesday. The
spikers look the first two games
I5-8, I5-6, narrowly blew the third
game 15-12 and came back strong in
the fourth game 15-5 to clinch Ihe
match.
Although the team won, Coach
Pat Dwycr said that, "they played
one of their worst matches and
lacked enthusiasm" against the very
psyched-up Union team. He attributed the team's problem to the
mental and physical stress of playing three big matches in one week.
In addition to Tuesday's game, the
spikers play West Point and face
the University of Vermont, Smith
College and Hartford, at the Springfield Tournament.
Donna Chaiet, the team captain
singled out Liz Rosentel, a Junior
who made Ihe all-star state team
last year, as having an outstanding
game against Union.
Dwyer
said,"If the team plays up to their
ability this week, we'll be in good
shape."

McCarthy, Kurlhy, Burnham, and
Dzamba; times were all personal

Coach Ron While was ecstatic
over his team's performance: "To
have five runners under 20 minutes
was our goal for the year. What
they did today is where 1 hoped
they'd be at this point in (he
season." White was very impressed
with how hard his team ran,
especially D/amba. She showed
"determination and desire" according to White, in overtaking an
Oneonta runner for fifth place in
the last mile.
The squad is striving toward
posl-season competition, which
begins in two weeks. While added,
"The learn doesn't realize how
good they really are. They don't
know their capabilities."
The next meet is Ihe SUNY Invitational ai Oneonta on Saturday.
The team will be without Kurlhy,
bul Coach While hopes lo fill the
gap with some of that "depth" he
feels his cross country learn '

Loudonville,
N, Y,
It wasn't dramatic. It wasn't spectacular. It certainly
wasn't the best played game. But it was a win, something
the Albany State men's soccer team has not enjoyed in a
long time. T h e Danes broke their five game winless streak,
with a l-O victory over the winless Indians o f Siena In
Loudonville, Tuesday afternoon.
C o a c h Bill S c h i c f f e l i n w a s pleased with t h e
wln."Hopefully this will get us back o n the right track. W e
haven't been playing well and we are certainly capable o f

Danes' character on the line against Cortland
By Marc Ilaspel
SPORTS HDITVR
There comes a time during the course o f a long season
when every team must prove its character. Usually it arrives
after a major team setback — a disappointing loss or
perhaps an injury to a key player. The team's maturity is
tested as it must shake off the unfortunate and look ahead

time has c o m e .
Riding the crest of a three-game winning streak, the
Danes were halted last weekend by the Division II Southern
Connecticut State College Owls in the final seconds o f play.
It may well have been the most heartbreaking loss ever suffered o n University Field.
S o tomorrow the Danes are faced with the task o f proving their resiliency. Albany will get the opportunity to show
its team character as the Danes take o n the Cortland Red
Dragons in A l b a n y Stale's traditional H o m e Coming contest. .
" E a c h team develops a personality o f its o w n . When
you've payed the price and don't achieve the goal y o u
wanted, it hurts," said Albany State head coach Bob Ford
referring to last week's painful loss. "It will be interesting
to see how they will bounce back. I'd be disappointed if
they d i d n ' t . "
Last season Ihe Danes visited Cortland under adverse
conditions. Having just lost the services o f starting quarterback T o m Pratt the week before against the University o f
.Buffalo Bulls, Albany was forced to g o with backup signalcaller T o m Roth. While the relatively inexperienced
replacement did the j o b as well as could be expected, the
Danes fell to defeat against their S U N Y rivals 20-14. It was
