The Albany State Ureal Danes sent a
clear message lo their SUNYAC rivals
across Ihe slutc Wednesday evening.
Albany opened ils 19S2-3 SUNYAC season
with an 87-67 drubbing of the Plattsburgh
Cardinals and signaled lo ihe rest of the
league lhal they are ready to defend their
Eastern division title of a year ago.
"It's always a tough game up here," said
Albany Slate head basketball coach Dick
Sauers. "Il's a good way lo start the conference play."
Plattsburgh head coach Norm Law was
visibly upset after Ihe loss.
"I thought we played a lousy game.
Albany played very good and made us play
a lousy game." said Plattsburgh head
coach Law. His < ardinals were 1-2 entering

Women cagers down Skidmore College 66-53
By HistDisc Levine
The Albany State women's basketball
team increased its record to 2-1 last
Wednesday by beating Skidmore College
66-53. The relatively inexperienced Dane
team played "sloppily," according to
Albany State head coach Mari Warner.
"We had some problems handling Ihe
ball," Warner added, noting the eleven turnovers in the first half.
Rebounding was also a persistent problem for the Danes. "There seemed to be a
lid on ihe basket in Ihe second half, which
caused us to lose confidence," she said.
The Danes were hesistant lo shoot but
managed to hold onto a wide lead over
Skidmore throughout the game.
The Danes received balanced scoring
from several shooters. Diane Fernandes,
Robin Gibson, Rhea Edwards, Peg Squazzo and Rainy Lcsanc each had six points in
the game. The latter pair shot a perfect

Albany's women students experience a
"chilly climate" In college classrooms,
agrees co-chair of the Feminist Alliance,
Gail Friedberg, responding lo Ihe findings
of a nation-wide sludy released by the
Association of American Colleges.
The study, which is entitled The
Classroom Climate: A Chilly One for
H'omrvi?explains how women are treated
unfairly in classroom situations whether
they arc aware of it or not,
Roberta Hall, Assistant Director of
Special Programs and Coordinator of the
stiuly, describes it ns, ":t compilation of
research from a number of sources based
on surveys from a number of universities."
The sludy p
which either overlook or single out women
because of sex may leave women feeling
they arc not up to par with men. Women
may become less confident than their male
classmates about their academic ability,
their place in the college community, and
their potential for career success."
Frledbcrg feels lhal chauvanistic attitudes
are "definitely a problem on this campus."
Citing a specific example, she noted that
"In an introduction to sociology class, the
professor is constantly making sexist
remarks that offend women in the class."
Friedberg said that she and olher women
have been told to avoid taking certain
classes because professors "who are otherwise excellent" have proven to be offensive
to women in previous semesters. Friedberg
also pointed out that women students have
been 'discouraged from a major because of
a professor's attitude toward the female
According to the study, a "chilly
climate" can be manifested in many other
ways. For example, faculty may not be as
likely to call directly on women as on men
during class discussion, or may interrupt
women more frequently or allow them to be
disproportionately interrupted by others in
the class. Teachers may often ask questions
followed by eye contact with men students
as if only men were expected to respond,
and some teachers still use sexist humor to
"spruce up a dull subject" or make
disparaging comments about women as a
group, the study found.
Also, Hall pointed .out thai the faculty
may not give the women informal feedback
on their work, and that the problem was
not unique to men and that "women professors are also to blame."
Martha Fitch, chair of the Committee on
Affirmative Action's Women's Concerns,
stressed that it is important to investigate
the extent to which the "chilly climate" occurs at Albany State and to see if we "are in
line with the national trend."
Fitch said that Women's Concerns was
considering doing a survey on campus, or a
panel discussion using both students and
faculty. She said that neither option was
definite at the present time, and that any action taken would generally attempt to
publicize the issue to faculty, students, administration, and the community.
Hall suggested the "administrators
should make a policy statement lo the effect
that this type of behavior is unacceptable."
She continued that " a grievance procedure
should be established so that women could

SUNY must find creative ways to overcome financial ills.
Tight budget forces SUNY to
limit allocation of state funds
Last part of a two-part series.
By Michael P . Daimliv
With New York State's financial health
in question, state budgeters have increased
their control over the Slate University of
New York. Financial support for SUNY
has decreased, so State University expenses
are monitored more strictly. SUNY must
serve more students with fewer faculty and
staff, so planning is more closely observed.
While the State Univcrsily lakes pride in
Ihe autonomy it has allowed its 64 campuses, the need lo plan for budget shortfalls
and to correct funding imbalances between
campuses has forced increased central administration involvement. SUNY Central
administration now reviews campus plans
and finances with a sharper eye than ever
before. SUNY has even become involved in
redistributing money allocated to campuses
by the legislature.
SUNY officials agree that its involvement
in campus planning will increase. The
state's financial situation will, they say, get
worse before it gets better.
This bleak outlook has forced the heads
of SUNY to reevaluate the State University
system. The end result has not always been
State University administrators do not
fully agree on the state of SUNY, but their
comments are consistent on what SUNY
must do, what the actions will mean, and
why SUNY is in its present state: SUNY
must, they feel, redefine its goal of "excellence" and find creative ways to solve its
problems — new money will not be
available to cure present and future ills;
these actions, they concur will mean fewer
academic programs offered on each campus. Finally , they contend, SUNY's
"undcrfunding" is due lo public altitude
toward tax-supported services and the
state's anemic economy.
After all the budget battling, reallocations and planning sessions, the bottom line
is this: more control of SUNY by Ihe slate,
and more control of campuses by SUNY.
Where wc are
"The things thai have come to be government services provided to the people at a
reduced cost cannol command a sufficient
degree of public support as it once did,"
stated Executive Vice Chancellor Donald
D. O'Dowd.
This is due, O'Dowd said, lo a feeling
that "for a long time these services have
just not been delivering." SUNY is, he said,
one victim of this "disillusionment."
O'Dowd said he is amazed by the money
invested in the State University before the
'70s. He does predict higher education
receiving less money while admitting that it
is already "underfunded."
If the state's economy improved, more
tax would be collected by the state,
0;Dowd noted. This might mean more
money for SUNY, he said, but he does not
see this happening soon.
For now, Gov. Hugh Carey predicts a
$311 million state deficit for the 1982-1983
fiscal-year and SUNY Central administrators expect its share of funding
from the state to continue decreasing.
To prevent this deficit, Carey and the
Division ' of the Budget are strictly
regulating SUNY's spending. Controls include a hiring freeze and impoundment of
$17 million or SUNY funds. To correct
"imbalances" in funding between campuses, SUNY has redistributed money

Heart patient improving
Sail Lake City
(AP) Barney B. Clark has begun leg exercises that doctores
hope will have the recipient of the world's first permanent
artificial heart taking a step or two in the next few days.
With two hoses linking his mechanical heart to the air
compressor that powers it, the 61-year-old retired dentist
sat up Sunday, dangled his feet over the side of the bed and
kicked his legs gently back and forth for five minutes, according to a spokesman for the University of Utah Medical
Last Wednesday, Clark had irregular rhythms in his badly diseased natural heart and was so near total failure that,
doctors rushed him into the operation room ahead of

'We are now beginning to rebuild his muscle strength and
Hope to have him standing and perhaps taking a step or two
in the coming days," said Dr. Lyle Joyce, who assisted Dr.
William C. DeVrics in the implant surgery.
The exercise will be repeated at least four times a day.
"He told me he would like to stand up and stretch, but
he just didn't think he could do it yet," Joyce said.
Clark remains in serious but stable condition. His blood
pressure, temperature and circulation of blood all were normal Sunday, and doctors were particularly pleased by the
reduction in free hcmpolobin — damaged red blod cells.
Dr. Chase Peterson; university vice president of health
sciences, said the level Thursday was 560, but it had dropped by Sunday to 16. The 560 level was due to damage caused by the heart-lung machine used during surgery, he said.
"This is a good sign that there isn't damage being done"
to the blood by the artificial heart, he said. The doctors also
were pleased there has been no pneumonia or wound infection, common post-operative complications.
Economic growth hampered
Ithaca, N, Y.
(AP) A group of prominent economists predicted that the
nation's economy will recover in 1983, but that growth will
fall far short of rates recorded after other recessions.
The economists, members of the Conference Board's
Economic Forum, which meets annually to examine the nation's economic forecast, said the real gross national product was expected to grow by only 2.7 percent, down from
about 6 percent this year.
Economic growth in the coming year would be hampered
by continuing high interest rates and a federal budget
deficit of $170 billion to $180 billion, the forum said in a
Forum members said their muted optimism for 1983
reflected their concern over the future path of fiscal and
monetary policy. An easing of interest rales, they said, required an accommodative Federal Reserve policy, subdued
economic recovery and reduced inflation rate.
"Money market rates are seen falling lo just under 8 percent, an 11 percent or slightly lower prime rate is expected,
and the yield on AA corporate bonds should settle in the
neighborhood of 10.75 percent," said Norman Robertson,
a forum member and senior vice president and chief
economist of the Mellon Bank.
"Before the end of next year, however, the decline in
rates will probably have run its course and a firming trend
can be expected in response to the quickening pace of
business activity and the Treasury's enormous borrowing
requirements," he said.
He warned that "a return to single-digit, long-term interest rates is unlikely until such time as the ballooning
federal budget deficit has been brought under effective control and investors are convinced that economic policy can
successfully combine reasonable price stability along with
strong gains in output.
Student loans unpaid
Washington D.C.
(AP) The government said today it has discovered that
46,860 current or retired federal workers owe it nearly $68
million in unpaid student loans.
Education Secretary T.H. Bell told a news conference he
is launching a crackdown that will lead to garnishing the
workers' wages in early 1983 unless they pay back the loans.
Sen. Charles q . Percy, R-Ill., who sponsored the Debt
Collection Act that President Reagan siged in Oct. to allow
the government to withhold the wages from student loan
defaulters, said, "This is nothing less than a slap in the face
to every taxpayer in this country."
Percy, appearing with Bell, said in a statement that the
46,860 defaulters "have had their good lives made possible
by the generousity of the American taxpayers. They foot
the bill for these federal workers' education."
Bell said his department checked a list of 800,000 student
loan defaulters against records of 10.3 million current or
former federal employees, including the military.

(laims Wallenberg might be alive.
Since Raoul Wallenberg disappeared
from Budapest, Hungary, in January of
1945, innumerable inquiries have been
made to the intractable Soviet government
over his fate. Wallenberg is credited with
saving as many as 100,000 Jews earmarked
for Nazi extermination camps.
President Vincent O'Leary declared last
Thursday as a day to remember Raoul
Wallenberg. That same day, President of
the Raoul Wallenberg Committee of the
United States, Rachel Haspel, spoke in the
Campus Center Ballroom on the
achievements of Wallenberg and the continuing evidence that he may still be alive
deep in the Soviet prison system.
Wallenberg arrived in Budapest in July,
He was appointed by Ihc War
Refugee Board to save the last remaining
Jewish community in Europe from "the
final solution," and he worked under the
auspices of Ihc Swedish government,
"He was convinced he had lo begin (sav-
ing Jews) Ihc minute he arrived," Haspel
explained. She said he worked ingeniously
and untiringly in his efforts,
Wallenberg designed and distributed Ihc
Swedish protective passport to the
Hungarian Jews, Haspel explained. He was
luthorized to pass out 5,000 of these
documents but instead passed out 25,000,

horn Eichman's S.S. guards and their
Hungarian cohorts.
Wallenberg rented 32 apartment houses,
raised the Swedish flag over them, and used
them as safe houses for Ihc sheltering of
Jews, Haspel continued.
Haspel described how Wallcnburg used
climb atop cattle cars crammed with Jews
headed towards extermination camps. He
would shout down through the airhole lo
ihc passengers, asking if any of them had
papers written in a foreign language. Then
he would convince the German guards that
these were emigration documents prohibiting their arrest, "That's how powerful
his personality was," Haspel said. "They
(the guards) were afraid of him."
"Jews were given hope In this grim, dark
time," she added. "But unfortunately,
there is a dark side to this story."
In January of 1945, when the Red Army
entered Budapest, Wallenberg was taken by
them into protective custody. "He was
lost," Haspel said. She hypothesized that
capitlstically oriented Wallenberg plan to
integrate Jews back Into Hungarian society
was idcalistically unpalatable to the victorious Soviets. In addition, it is believed

Nakhleh urges Palestine freedom at any cost
Hv Bob Gardinier
In a fiery speech to a tense audience in
LC 1 Monday night, Khalil Nakhleh,
spokesman for the PLO.denounced Israel's
June invasion of Lebanon and declared thai
the PLO will go to any extent, ever,
military, to gain independence.
Nakhleh is a teacher of anthropology at
St. Johns University in Collegcville, Minnesota, and has been recently conducting
research on the Palestinian and Arab
populations in Israel.
"The PLO' calls for a democratic and a
secular state thai is nonracist." The PLO
will go to any means to attain these ends,
Nakhleh said.
"The PLO has every right as the
representatives of the Palestinian people to
use political and military means to achieve
Palestine liberation," declared Nakhleh.
But he added that he did not condone the
"attack on Jews because they are Jews".
The PLO would accept a state of coexistence with Jewish people or any other
people, he said.
To date, ihe PLO has rejected all peace
plans put forth by the U.S., In regards to
this Nakhleh said that the PLO will continue to reject all peace plans thai do not
recognize the Palestinian people's right to
automony. "Why have the Palestinian people always been refugees?" he asked. Now •
they are refugees once again, a people
without a home, he said.
According to Steven Hilsenralh, president of the Revisionist Zionist Alternative,
Nakhleh's compromising portrayal of the I
PLO is wrong, Hilsenralh said that, "lie
failed lo mention the bombing in Ecuador

•last week that killed two people and the October bombing of a Jewish syuagouge in
Rome." In both incidents Ihc PLO has
claimed responsibility, according to
Nakhleh said that Israel's move to rout
the PLO from Lebanon failed and now the
PLO is in a stale of fluidity — the
Palestinian people have not been destroyed
and are more determined." Nakhleh went
on to accuse the government of Israel of being a racist stale because of their tendencies
to wanl lo eliminate the PLO. Nakhleh
feels that there is no doubt that the PLO
uul the Palestinian people are one and Ihc
same. "Any attempts to crush the PI.O will
have lo eliminate Pale linian people," he
Hilsenrath said thai Ihc move into
Lebanon by Israeli orces should have
routed Ihe PLO bu' Ihc government of
Israel yielded to U.S. pressure. As a result,
he feels (hat the effort was probably in vain.
The U.S. is not interested in helping the
PLO attain independence for the Palestinian people, according to Nakhleh. The
reason he claimed was that Israel is a "conduit for American arms to third world
countries", and as such is in better favor
with the U.S.
One Palestinian in the audience reacted
lo the tense atmosphere between Ihe Jews
and Palestinians saying, "Can the past be
forgotten, can anything come out of this
controversy?" But in regards to his people
he said, "We are not talking about an equal
situation. We are looking at a group of people who cannot live in peace."
Naktileh said that petitions are being forwarded in the attempt to secure the release
of 7,000 to 10,000 Palestinian prisoners of
war that have been held without charges by
Israel government.
According to Dr. Steven Windmueller,
Executive Director of the Greater Albany
Jewish Federation, the fact that the PLO
has not been completely routed is not as important as the fact that "Now the Lebanese
people are on a path of self-determination

Israel's Peace Now spokesman, Hebrew
University Professor Gur Ofer, is skeptical
of Israeli Prime Minister Bcgin's stand on
rule of the West Bank. Compromise and
secularism thai recognizes the national
rights of Arabs and the PLO is necessary
for peace in the area, he said in a speech
Sunday night at the Jewish Community
Center of Albany
Ofer called for patient, calculated concern for all people living in Ihe strife torn
Middle Hast, He emphasized, however,
thai Israel should remain strong and expect
responsible negotiations and proposals
from the Arabs and the PLO for a permanent end 10 unrest in Ihe area.
But, Ofer said, "Security is nol
something that is foolproof, there is always
uncertainly." He considers ibis risk of
uncertainty necessary for any further
developments for peace.
Israel should
come forward in an attitude of compromise, he said.
Peace Now Movement starled in 1978
and was inspired by Presidents Sadat's
moves lowurd peace negotiations with
Israel in thai year. During Ihe Camp David
talks the first large peace demonstration in
the history of the country of Israel occured
and proved popular concern for a move
toward peace with the Arabs. This event
sparked the Peace Now Movement, according lo Ofer.
Ofer agreed that Ihe West Bank, by
rights, belongs to Israel. He pointed out,
however, that there is a large population of
Arabs and Palestinians living there. "If the
Jews want dominance of the area what
should we do with Ihe people there that will
he humane and good for Israel," he said.
According lo Ofer, Israel has some
choices: expel all others from the area by
force, rule over them by reducing them to
second class citizens or wait for the Arabs
to compromise with proposals for peace.
Peace Now believes ihut none of these alternatives arc feasible and thai friction in the
area will continue unless Israel comes forward for peace, Ofer said.
"Our only solution is to leave the West
Dank alone with the assurance of security
from Ihe other nations in the area," said
Ofer was "misleading," according lo
RZA president Steve Hilsenraih who attended the speech. "He wants lo have
peace now but where is the other side; the
Arabs don't want peace."
Hilsenratli complained that the part of
the Wesl Bank Ofer wants 10 give away includes Hebron, a Jewish city and holy place
which is very important to the Jewish faith.
"It Is simply too early In tell whether com-
promise on the part of Israel will work."
Peace Now has urged the government of
Israel to reconsider its rejection of President Reagan's peace proposals aired in
Sept. of 1982, said orcr. The U.S. is the
only country who is interested In working
for a peace settlement in the area, he added.
Ofer condemned Israel's invasion into
Lebanon, calling it a simple show ol
military might on the part of the Israeli
government. "If someone had set Begin
down and explained the past, present and
future information regarding such u move,
he would nol have allowed it to happen."
Ofer blamed Defense Minister Sharon for
the brashncss of the attack.
Ofer considered the massacre in the
Lebanon refugee camps to be a terrible
blemish on the Jewish nation. But the internal investigation started by the government is Ihe firsl time the government has
had iis own practices looked Into and it is a
good sign. "It will lake generations lor the
Jewish nation lo get over the terrible
aspects of this massacre," said Ofer.
Peace Now will not lobby on capital hill,
according lo Ofer. "We are nol going lo be

Wallenberg's fate remains a mystery
reporlcd that Wallenberg was still alive in
Soviet prison.
One prisoner, Andrei
Skimkcvitch, said he had shared a cell with
Wallenberg in 1947.
Two more exprisoners said ihey had communicated with
Wallenberg in solitary confinement through
a tapping code.
"Wallenberg, Budapest, Swede. Lei
them know where I am," he was said lo
have tapped.
Evidence continued to build. In 19S6,
Ihe Swedish government reconfrontcd the
Soviet government with this information.
In 1957 ihey received back a note, signed by
Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko,
reporting that Wallenberg died in a Soviet
prison in 1947. The note said thai a handwritten report turned up, written by the Lubianka Prison's doctor, saying that
Wallenberg died of an apparent heart attack in his cell on July 17.
Haspcl said this note was highly
suspicious, given Ihe Soviet government's
penchant for careful documcnlation. And
as Gromyko has risen in the Soviet hierarchy, she added, Wallenberg's chances for
release decreased.
Every year, Haspcl said, new evidence
continues to surface thai Wallenberg sur-
vives in the Gulag. She explained that a
released prisoner, Jan Kaplan, reported to
daughter in Israel that there was a Swede in
prison who had been there for thirty years.
Word reached the Swedish government,
which directed new inquiries to Ihe Soviets,
Haspel explained. Kaplan was imprisoned
again, and his daughter received
anonymous phone calls in Israel warning
her not lo speak of Wallenberg for her
father's sake, Haspel added.
"We still have not given up hope,"
Haspel said. Wallenberg's seventieth birthday was on August 9th.
SUNYA Graduate student Nell
Tcvcbaugh-Kcnwryck has joined the effort,
spurring history professor H. Peter Krosby
to nominate Wallenberg for Ihe Nobel
Peace Prize. He also successfully lobbied
Governor Hugh Carey to declare last October 5th as Raoul Wallenberg day in New
York slate, and submitted a resolution to
the stale legislature urging President
Reagan and Vice President Bush lo lake action on behalf of Wallenberg. The resolution passed quickly. On October 5, 1981,
Reagan had signed a bill making
Wallenberg an honorary citizen of Ihe
United Slates.
"I was incensed when I heard what hap-
pened lo Wallenberg," TevebaugnKcnwryck said. He is now working, along
with Krosby and Haspel in urging influential people to submit secondary nominations to the Nobel committee on behalf of
Wallenberg. He said Simon Wlcsenthal,
the famed Nazi-hunter, Coretla Scott King,
as well as congressmen and government officials abroad have agreed to second
Krosby's nomination.
"It is anybody's guess," TevebaughKcnwryck said, on whether Wallenberg is
still alive and might someday be released.
"But It is important to see his accomplishments will be recognized in world

LaSusa said Central Council will examine its impeachment proceedings

instead of Central Council, so that

At SUNY-New Pallz, vice-president of
Financial Affairs, Rob Rabii said that on- '
ly meetings dealing with hired personnel
are closed. "The editor and Ihe paper
realize that executive session is only dealing with personnel mailers," he said.
Dismissal for excessive absenteeism is
brought before their Senate in an open

Rabii explained, "We don't sec it as being that damaging."

Hie Stute University Itas also onacted a
new spending plait which would have
redistributed Ihe $17 million held by Carey,
even Ihough ihe legislature allocated Ihe
mnoncy lo individual campuses.
flic spending plan requires campuses to
submit several monthly and quarterly
reports on promotions, position changes
and unplanned expenses. Campus actions

Central review and revision.
Chancellor Clifton R. Wharton has
staled that SUNY must act more as a
system. "Thai does not mean that campuses must lose their Individuality) their
uniqueness or their autonomy," Wharton
said. "'I hey should recognize that they are
pari of a system and there are many limes
when ihey have greater strength collectively
than Ihey would have singly."
Redefining "excellence"
One way of achieving this strength,
Wharton said, is lo emphasize certain programs on each campus while trimming
others. This could include offering certain
programs on select campuses, Wharton
SUNY Administrators agree thai his is
the direction of planning in ihe Stale
"It's going to be a more selective university in that nol all campuses are going lo lie
everything to all people," Vice Chancellor
for Business and Finance Many K. Splndlcr
declared. "Campuses will begin 10 isolate
Ihe things they're very good at."
Since gaining new money from Ihe slate
for new positions is unlikely, O'Dowd said,
"if we're going to add sonic things we're
going to have to contract, offering certain
fields of study on fewer campuses."
Indeed, "selective excellence" is Wharton's goal: SUNY, he believes, must
redefine excellence, offering smaller bill
stronger programs on fewer campuses.
Quality vs.diversity
Critics contend that "selective
excellence" means refusing many students
an education In their field of interest and
reducing diversity of students and programs
on campuses. Fewer students can enroll in
smaller programs, Ihey say, and fewer majors on n campus will limit students' exposure lo other viewpoints and disciplines.
Wharton noted ihal compuscs arc very
conscious of ihe need lo maintain "some
diversity and balance," and Ihal this shows
in planning sessions with SUNY Central.
Spindler stressed ihe financial control of
ihe university ihal the slate government imposes, saying "You've got so may people
watching what you do in this slate."

Listening to these albums you may say
"What's so new about all this?" Well, that's
Ihe whole point Ihe music Is totally contemporary, while ten ye,us ago their sound
was a breath of fresh air compared lo the
stale strains of the soft lock prevalent at time.
While It's probably Irue the Dolls were
greater than the sum ol it's parts, the solo
material released by the band members is
well worth checking out David Johansen
has received Ihe most commercial attention. His (list album released In 197H is the
most rocking, while his later LPs expand
ion It. He's always been a great frontman

iniG show 1 omposed ol
short, unrelated sketches "The Doilie
Sisters" tells a story, but there is no
dialogue. The show cannot be classified as
belonging to any one discipline; rather, it is
an amalgam of till of them. It is Silent
Theater, a continuous story, told through
movement, with dance a secondary element to the delineation of Ihe characters.
Originally a street theatre show performed in Albany, "The Doilie Sisters" tells the
story of Lulu and Flo, two women who
meet in a dance studio in the 193()'s.
Neither woman is particularly successful by
herself, so they decide to collaborate on an
act. The play follows their lives together,
both performing and personal, as they tour
with the USO during World War 11, perform with swing bands, grow close and
grow apart. The story is told through mime
and dance numbers which have their roots
In American musical theatre.
Valis. who portrays Lulu in the upcoming production, currently teaches movement and dance at SUNYA's Theater
Department. She received her mime training with Paul Curtis from the American
Mime Theater and Sterling Henson of
Etlenne Decroux Company and School.
/ |\„
She studied dance on a scholarship to the
Alvin Ailey School of American Dance and
taught jazz dance through an assistantship
with Nat Home. In addition, she has
studied with Matt Mattox, Pepsi Bethel,
Thelrna Hill and Charles Cook, and also
taught at the Conservatoire
Her partner, Sarah Safford, has equally
impressive credentials. She is a member of
several professional children's theater
groups. She received her training at Ihe
School of American Ballet, the California
Institute for the Arts, the Nikolais Louis
Dance Theater Lab, and the Clark Center
for the Performing Arts. She portrays Flo in
the upcoming production.
Valis and Safford met in 1976, when,
just like Lulu and Flo, both were working
on solo dances which just were not working out. They helped each other out, and
in 1977. developed Open Mime, Inc. with
one other person. They created 5 mime
plays with musical accompaniment ranging
from a player piano to the Springfield Symphony Orchestra. Open Mime works in a
theatrical framework, always using music
as a subtext.
Valis talked about the marriage of mime,
theater, and dance which constitute "The
Doilie Sisters". In her office, a bulletin
board loaded with a variety of masks made
by her students loomed behind her, Occasionally she would leap up from her desk to
illustrate a dance step or a move, but even
at her desk she seemed to be in constant
motion, She discussed the concept of
Silent Theater, one interpretation of which
is the incorporation of movement and
theater, "Mime is the actor who can movei
use bis body in Ihe dance vocabulary." she
said, "and the dancei who can motivate
theatrically. Mime is the (u-between for Ihe
two disciplines."
In essence, "The Doili- Sisters" is a new
form which translates a mime event into a
theatrical structure, it lefinately tells a
story, but not conventloi illy, The relationship between the tw- women is told
through the movem ;it techniques of
dance, mime, music, and — I've said
enough Some things are betler left as surprises.(Anyway, 1 promised not to tell.)
The music for the production is performed by Ihe Ray Rettig Trio, whose jazz concerts are well known lo many SUNYA
conccrl-goers. Carol M. Tanzman, the
director, has directed several productions
in the Albany area, and is the artislic direcior for Stone Soup Players, and Albany
children's theater group and also assistant
directed for Andre Serban for As You Like
It at La Mama Cafe in New York City, in
Germany, and for a tour of the Soviet
Union. Finally, "The Doilie Sisters," which
is sponsored in part by the NYS Council on
the Arts and partially by SUNYA's Theatre
Council is returning to Albany, after enjoying a successful debut at La Mama Cafe In
New York City. Vails expressed an Interest
in exposing SUNYA students to silent
theatre, and especially for her own
students, inspiring them to explore their
own potential for expressive movement.
If you like jazz, tap dancing, musicals,
mime, or any combination of the above or
all of the above, don't miss "The Doilie
Sisters". I can't think of a more novel way
to take a break from studying for finals —
after all, how many depressed faces do you
see coming out of a musical?

Moliere's Spoof Tartuffe
Ono's Alright
Yoko's latest album is
reflective and accessible
artuffe is Moliere's greatest comedy extravaganza, and it can be
seen in its best tight at Capita!
Repertory Company's current production.
The translation of the french verse was
done by Richard Wilbur {aJso responsible
for the award winning Candide lyrics of
Broadway fame}, a prize-winning poet
himself. The rhyme sceme. so intrinsic to
the humor m this play, has been preserved
and not a couplet goes by without a subtle
pun or outright guffaw.
Megan Gray Taylor
The set. designed by Neil Prince, is an
elaborate recreation of a French drawing
room, and the costumes, designed by
Lloyd K. Waiwaiole. have to be seen to be
believed. From Rosettes of silk, to garish
colors, to feathers they not only capture the
comedic natjre of the character they invariably enhance it.
The story of Tartuffe is a simple one. Set
in seventeeth century France, it revolves
around the comic misadventures ot
Orgon.a foolish, stubborn, oft times nieve
man who. despite the warnings of his family, turns over his soul and wordly possessions to Tartuffe. a treacherous snake posi g as a saint Tartuffe makes a flashy shoe
of being holy, wearing out his knees in
church. Orgon is totally deceived, and
takes the desperate Tartuffe into his house
not just as a guest but as a spiritual guide
When his family tries to uncloud his eyes,
he responds by banishing his son Damts.
pledging his daughter Mariane's hand in
marriage to Tartuffe. and signs all his property over to him Tartuffe. meanwhile, is
passionately artrscted to Orgon's young
wife Elmire, and it is this final weakness
that is at the heart of his undoing
The -Ailly, excessively passionate (either
in religion or love) Tartuffe is played
brilliantly by James Goodwin Rice. Rice, a
regular in CRC's last season, brings just the i
right touch of fervor tinged with greed to
the character. He is the hateful villian we
love to laugh at.
Orgon. the bumbling victim of Tartuffe is
played by Alan Zampese who is making his

Yoko album that's capitalizing on
John's death. Well, think again. It's true
lhat his "ghost" Is pictured on the back of
the sleeve along with Yoko and Sean, but
that's more a reflection of (he fact thai she
misses him and that she's still lonely
without him.
Gail Merrell
Capital Rep debut. Zampese, a veteran ol
numerous regional theaters and New York
productions is wonderfully nieve and irritatingly stubborn. His pacing of the continual rhyme was excellent. His revelation
in the end was marked by righteous anger
and indignation as overblown as this
character is to begin with.
The show stealer, however, is Susanne
Marley as the saucy maid Dorine. She sees
the truth of all household complexities and
does her best to inform everyone of her
view. Not only are her lines filled with the
subtlest and funniest puns of the play, her
delivery was underplayed so that ralher
than grating, the humor was smooth as
honey. Marley who returns to Capital Rep
after an absence, is so natural, so at easy in
this vivacious role, that her facial expressions were enough to hold my attention
even wheh she wasn't talki g Iwhich for
her character was rare).
The cast of twelve was rounded out by

often and not usually done this well
I have to admit that after the excessively
boring "Seasons of Glass" LP I didn't expect much from It's Alright. She tends to
lose me with her poetry and her repetitive
music. I did, however, enjoy her work
from the early seventies, which Is closer lo
bar room blues than anything else. There
was a slight touch of honky-tonk piano
there and some of her material paralleled
the work of Carole King and Melanle, And
she really rocked them too. The decade
old,"I Felt Like Smashing My Face In a
Clear Glass Window" still stands up today,
and Its content, a realistic look at her
parents, Is more 1982 then it was 1972.
Y o k o , who's a strong feminist, got pretty
sarcastic then, sounding like the Waitresses
on the couch. Those were the days.
But all Is not lost. Lately there's been an
outburst of bizarre female vocalists, all of
whom owe a lot to Yoko. Groups like the
B-52s, Missing Persons, Altered Images,
the Pretenders and Lene Lovich all borrow
from Yoko's earlier work and In turn serve
to make her voice sound more accessible.
("Rock Lobster" always comes to mind
when I think of Yoko-lnfluenced material).
Yoko too has become more approachable,
trading her jostling vocals for a tamer, more
'flowing manner. In fact, she sounds so
much like Annie Golden of The Shirts on
the "Hair" album, that every time she starts
another song I expect lo hear "I met a boy
named Frank Mills..."
There's another reason I'm reminded of
"Hair," and that's due to the flower-child
Imagery projected In her songs. If you
came to hear the prose of Y o k o the
feminist, Yoko the psychic, Yoko the artist,
or Yoko the Egyptologist, you won't find
her here What you will discover is Yoko's
vision of heaven on earth, a vision so vivid
that she easily could have called this LP
"Avalon" had Brian Ferry not already used
the title. Through her eyes we see a world
of trees, mountains, rivers, birds, stars,
sunrises and sunsets. From the picturesque
"1 See Rainbows", Yoko Is "sending tainbow thoughts." Remarkably, she never
loses her grasp of reality, and admits her
defeat to lonllness lamenting "I can endure
most anything, but lonllness . .Is one thing I
can't endure."
While Y o k o has made big changes
vocally and lyrically, she has changed
style musically as well. To help support her
dreamy Images, the music flows like the
ocean, makes bird calls, and creates a
universe of love and dreams. When she is
at her most beautiful she Imitates Ullravox,
and when she is at her most confusing she
ends the pieces with the unrelated synth
slaps of Orchestral Manovres.
Yoko has come full circle and Is more at
peace with herself. While no longer In
mourning, Yoko recalls John's Image
D a t e l i n e : Hollywood
is fierce and sinister. Wobble inverts a bass
riff and repeats it while Walker bashes like a
maniac on Angel dust. The title track.
"Public Image", is the single off the album
and is all about Johnny. He talks of
peoples inability to understand his role as a
sex pistol. "You never listened to a word
that I said, you only see me for the clothes I
wear." "Religion" is a song that atacks the
catholic church, although John says it was
done only as a joke. He fooled me. "Fodder stompf" is a fascination tune with heavy
repetitive bass and a disco beat. The Lyrics
are chanted with screeching chipmunktype vocals. The chant is a sarcastic "We
only wanted to be loved." Quite a hypnotic
piece. "Annalisa" is a hard rocker about a
15-year-old European girl who was exorcised by her parents and a priest. A true
story. Quite often Lydon writes his lyrics
based on articles in the news paper.
John DeMasi
Once upon a time, in a town called L o n don, somewhere on the other side of the
world, working class kids began picking up
cheap guitars and making music that was a
bit different from the music the popular
millionaire rock stars were making. One of
these bands was the Sex Pistols Another
was the Clash. The rise and fall of the Sex
Pistols is one of the most fascinating rock
and roll stories there is. but I'll not go into
that here. Suffice to say they wreaked
bloody havoc. AJmost everyone has heard
of bass player Sid Viscious and vocalist
Johnny Rotten. Hell. Sid's even been on
the evening news, ask mom and dad
Anyway they played their last show ever in
San Francisco in early 1978. content that
they had served their purpose The Clash.
who had opened for the Sex Pistols in their
early days, continued to grow in popaiarty
to the point where even your little sister
likes them. A founding member of the
Clash was a guitarist named Keith Levine.
who left the band in September of 1976
After the Sex Pistols broke up, John Lydon
(formerly Johnny Rotten) hooked up with
Keith Levine, bass player Jah Wobble, and
Drummer Jim Walker to form Public Image
Limited. From the start they were no ordinary lot. Lydon expressed an extreme
hatred for most rock music. He also expressed an extreme hatred for record companies In fact. L y d o n bitched about almost
everything about the music industry
Lydon and company'loathed everything
from fans idolizing "stars" to playing live
shows in the conventional format
Nonetheless they played their first gig at
London's Rainbow Club on Christmas day
in 1978. They even played an old Sex
Pistols tune called "Belson was a gas"
which is odd considering how Lydon
preached that PIL was new and different
and the Pistols were old wank. Well this
was just the beginning of a long trail of conrradiction. Lydon is the master of planned
contradiction. Just when he's got people
thinking that he thinks something is cool,
he goes and slags it off.
The first PIL album, entitled Public Image, was released in the U K . in early 1978
and was dismissed by the press as indulgent. The sound is a bit murky. Lydon
swears that one of the engineers sabotaged
it. Regardless. I think the sound is good
and the album is great. Lydon's voice is incredible. He screams, howls, wails, whines
and coos. Levme's guitar is a wall of
rhythmic dissonance The rhythm section
Which brings us to LP number two. This
album, which was the first American
release for PIL is entitled "Second Edition."
not to be out done by anyone, PIL released this album in the U K as a three disc
collection called "the Metal Box." The
three 45 r p.m. discs are enclosed in a
round metal container similar to a film cannister. The sound quality of "the Metal
B o x " is outstanding. The album was hailed
as ingenious. It was like listening to a different band than issued "Public Image." 1
recall listening to the first track "Albatross"
for the first time in my livingroom. Mom
and dad thought It was a recording of someone being tortured combined with the
cry of the humpback whale. That was no
humpback, that was Wobble's bass This is
not party music, it's mood music. Lydon's
cries are quite moving. "Swan Lake" Is a
piece about the death of John's mum.
"Words could never say the way you told
me with your eyes. Words are useless." It
was a dance hit In the U.K., where it Is entitled "Death Disco."
Yoko has made some major changes
recently. She just led Gellen records and
March Of The Movies

ost people don't have any idea
what Public Image Limited is.
And those who know of PIL
sometimes don't understand what the band
is about Well you can all rest easy because
I'm going to tell you everything you've ever
wanted to know about PIL but were afraid
to ask.
throughout the album This Is more of a
reflective Imagery, rather than griefstricken. And while Yoko spends a major
portion ol her llle on the telephone (about
eight hours a day) and Is heavily into
magic, these two peculiarities are not opparent here. What Is apparent is that she is
Implementing a simpler lyrical design that
delles her complicated, mystic personality.
The album Is a far cry (rom her world of
assorted astrologers, psychics, spiritual
consultants and numerologists, whose advice helps her to make decisions. On vinyl

becoming religious or didactic.

powerful LP got Pil on American Bandstand. Of course they were totally uncooperative. Lyden didn't even try to move
his lips in time with the music as he walked
through the shocked audience, he pushed
people out of his way. Levine just put
down his guitar. Naughty boys got Dick
Clark all a flutter.
The most recent PIL LP is called "Flouvr

with Sid Viscious years earlier. Levine only

stuff, but great nonetheless The drums

Which brings us to now. PIL has a new
LP due any day now. According to John. It
will be commercial, not like REO Speedwagon, but more like their previous singles.
The band Is now cooperative, playing normal live shows since their riot/fiasco at the

Not for love nor money
For Ihe past year, no advertisements for military services'
and intelligence agencies have been accepted by this paper.
We established a policy last spring that we would consider
the advertisements f r o m these federal agencies deceptive
and reject them unless the ads state that the organization
discriminates on the basis o f sexual or affectional orientation.
Homosexuals arc not allowed in the military services or
intelligence agencies. Gays and lesbians discovered in the
military are immediately discharged with less-thanhonorable status. Our concern was been that a person,
drawn to one o f these services by its advertising and inducted, will face a life tainted by a less that honorable
military discharge. We were also concerned that we create a
disservice by running ads with such important omissions.
From time to time we still recicve an advertisement from
one o f these federal agencies. None o f the ads contained the
information that they discriminate against homosexuals,
and we reject the ads.
This week we rcclevcd an ad from the Marine Corps, but
things were a little different. Their local public relations
man, Fritz Zimmerman I I I , is excellent at his j o b . He spent
hours on the phone In several different calls trying lo convince us that the Marines don't discriminate against
O f course, those aren't the words he used. When we call-
Simon's ignorance
To Ihe Editor:
ed him yesterday afternoon, he claimed that he wasn't
aware of a single case o f a gay or lesbian rejected by the
Marines. That's sort o f like Albany's University Club
claiming that they aren't aware o f any women denied
membership. It's simply absurd. When Zimmerman
discovered thai he couldn't confuse us with absurdity, he
tried turn of phrase. He stresses that he doesn't
discriminate against homosexuals — it's policy that comes
from Washington. He just follows his orders.
This rhetorical twisting continued for quite a while. Then
his logic took an even more bizarre turn. He said that rejecting gays and lesbians wasn't discrimination, merely common sense. He likened a homosexual military pilot to a onelegged flyer. We told him that we didn't consider one's sexual preference to be that disabling. Then he got nasty.
Zimmerman explained that every time recruiting teams
visit a campus, they report on how things went. I f they have
trouble — like Ihe sludent newspaper rejecting ihcir ads —
ihey put thai in Iheir report. This report then travels along
ihe military/bureaucratic pipeline all ihe way lo ihe Pentagon, He asserted thai Ihe report could have a number o f
results, one of which could be a withdraw! of any military
funds this universily recicves — ranging from research
funds to tuition-paying students. In essence, he threatened
thai if we d i d n ' l lake the ads we could get our universily in
big trouble.
We told him we still weren't going to take Ihe ad. He
then put on his boss — Capt. James C o u r t , Ihe head ol Ihe
local officer selection team. Court repealed whal Zimmerman had said, and we told him that we wouldn't take Ihe ail
unless Ihey owned up to the fact that the Marine Corps
discriminates against homosexuals.
You won't see Ihe ad in this newspaper. After silling
through the bullshit they were trying l o pass o f f on us as
t r u t h , we came to the realization that Ihey were idling very
clever lies. Their version o f Ihe truth is an Interesting variation on a basic lie — thai discrimination against homosexuals is common sense,
Over (lie pasl six months, the military lias been threaten'
ing colleges and universities that bar or restrict recruiters
from their campuses because o f their discriminatory
practices. Some o f ihe colleges have been Intimidated Into
allowing recruiters on their campuses. We hale to ihink lhal
we're going lo get Albany Slalc in trouble, bill we will noi
be intimidated by threats from the Marines.
We cslimale lhal our advertising policy has cosl the ASP
several thousand dollars over the past two semesters, Wc
certainly could use ihe money, bill as long as lies like these
arc " c o m m o n sense," forcing the federal government IB
tell ihe truth makes even belter sense.
Rehumanizing America
N o longer is an American president emphasizing human
rights in American foreign policy.
Though then Prcsidcnl Jimmy Carter talked of human
rights during his adminislralion, when it came lo backing
lhal talk with actions, Carter demonstrated human rights
must be secondary lo political considerations.
'Robert Martiniano
At least Presidenl Ronald Reagan is consistent in his
human rights policy. He does not believe his administration
should promote human rights, and his actions lack any
commitment to human rights.
Irrcgardless o f the President's politics, we, as a society,
musl promote human rights and personal dignity as
America's primary foreign policy concern and primary
domestic policy concern.
What about nuclear power and unemployment When
Ihe righls and dignity of a people are ihe governmenl's
primary concern, problems such as unemployment and the
nuclear issue fall inlo place, Obviously if we believe in people, we would believe in their right to work and contribute
lo themselves and society and believe in their right not lo
live in fear o f a nuclear holocaust.
Human righls go beyond our political beings. One cannot profess human rights on one level and ignore litem on
any other level. Righls and the belief In human dignity must
be pervasive throughout our entire existence lo be worlh
anything at all.
Contradictions do exist, however, In America's approach
to human rights, and these contradictions don't appear to
cause Americans as a whole any great concern.
We speak of the political freedoms which should be atforded to Ihe peoples o f Ireland o f Ihe Palestinian refugees,
but we ignore the political freedoms for the people of Puerto Rico, or even closer to home, the Dislricl of Columbia.
The people of Puerto Rico have been suffering under colonial rule much ihe same as Ihe Irish people have. We cannot lessen Ihe degree o f colonialism solely because
American troops aren't engaged in a guerilla war affecling
and killing every segment of Puerto Rico's socicly.
The people o f ihe District o f Columbia have been suffering under the lack o f political righls much the same as the
Palestinian people have. Wc cannot lessen the degree to •
• .;. :l the people o f the Dislricl o f Columbia lack political
s solely because their land is marked by definite boundaries.
Americans look outside the nation to condemn abuses of
civil rights. Arc we that politically naive lo think our own
nation is above abuses o f human rights?
Wc condemn the Soviet Union and Poland for Poland's
martial law. The Reagan adminislralion has done
everything in ils power, unsuccessfully however, lo-
demonstrate iis condemnation of this abus: of the rights of
Polish workers.
Yet, i f any o f us have lived through an a l l c m p l to
unionize our place of w o r k , we know Ihe difficulties involved. T h o u g h unionization is beneficial for the workers, and
we have seen organization allcr organization unionize, the

CASA's defense
American system frowns upon unionization. Most people
involved are labeled as radicals, malcontents and oflen find
fuiurc employment difficult lo come by.
Though unionization in America hasn't experienced the
same difficulties unionization in Poland has as of late ai
least, Ihe 1'ighllng In Ihe streets, Ihe internments, and Ihe

We criticize the abuse o f power one people has over

people in power effectively destroy the righls and freedoms

human righls violations, we arc not concerned enough lo

Concerning Joel Simon's letter entitled Bigotry and
Feminism, we wish 10 clarify a few points. M r . Simon is
correct, he exaggerates. Men do not have lo "selfrighteously believe that the woman's place is in Ihe kitchen or the b e d r o o m " lo be pigheaded and ignorant, M r .
Simon states that he " h o l d s no objections" lo the growing
feminist movement. Wc do not want or need his approval!
When he stales thai " beneficial to both Ihe
women and to society", is M r . Simon including women as
part o f our society or segregating us as an entity in
ourselves? M r . Simon's sexual preference, although he may
feel the need to come out as a heterosexual, has no
relevance to how he is viewed by his so-called lesbianfeminist " f r i e n d s " . As an aside, not all feminists are lesbians.

Mark Gesncr's recent ASP article "Sponsors charged
dance group is anti-Semitic (November 16, pp. I , 13),
calls for a response from one of the event's sponsors which
takes exception lo Ihe charges—The Central American
Solidarity Alliance (CASA) co-sponsored Wallflower
Order: Dance Theatre Collective wilh the S U N Y A Feminist
Alliance, The Feminist Forum, This River of Women
Theatre Group, and the Tri-Cily Women's Center al Page
Hall in Albany on November 6th. Il is Wallflower Older
which is charged with antl-semltism, the C A S A does noi see
il lhal way. We think the ASP article distorts the truth
about our role in bringing Wallflower Order to Albany,
and the truth about whal Wallflower Order has to say lo Its
The ASP quotes Gail Frcidberg of the Feminist Alliance
as saying that CASA exerted pressure on her group to suppress the fact lhal Wallflower supports Ihe P L O . " T h e
feeling from C A S A was 'don't let ihings gel around...' said
Frcidberg." In fact, whal CASA hoped would noi be
publicized was rumored boycott by The Feminist Alliance
of Wallflower Order, despite the Alliance's co-sponsorship
o f the evenl. This rumor was circulated before checking
with the dancers aboui a possible dedication lo the PLO
and before engaging In a dialogue with them about a statement all Ihe sponsors could accept. As Frcidberg said, by
Ihe lime the controversy began, it was loo late lo cancel Ihe
performance, Publicity lor the event had been printed and
distributed, Unlike the SUNYA-funded Feminist Alliance,
CASA could hardly sustain the financial loss a boycott
would threaten, especially a boycott dramatically invoked
by a co-sponsor of the performance, So, while il is true thai
some of C A S A ' s initial enthusiasm for sponsoring
Wallflower Order was lost, il is not true that ihe Wallflower
Order numbed our enthusiasm as Ihe ASP article suggests.
Gesner wrote: " A l t h o u g h all Ihe sponsors were initially enthusiastic lo have the theater collective perform In Albany,
none were pleased about rumors spread iwo weeks before
the show, naming ihe Wallflower group as a supporter of
the P L O . " The rumors CASA worried about concerned Ihe
potential actions of The Feminist Alliance which seemed lo
be abandoning ship at Ihe sign of Ihe first wave, leaving
CASA in a storm lhal The Feminist Alliance had labelled
"anii-Seiniiic"..swhich brings us to Ihe central issue. Is
whal CASA brought to town, indeed is whal The Feminist
Alliance brought to t o w n , anti-Semitic? Fur from i i !
Whal C A S A experienced al Wallflower Order's performance was both what ii expected, and whal il promoted in
Its prc-perl'ormancc publicity. The political message was
clear, and ils delivery was poignant, Women have been and
Still are in struggle: lo survive with dignity! lo discover their
Identities; to assert iheir rights; to defend iheir children,
themselves, and iheir ideals. Portraying physical, emotional, and political embnlllcmcnl, WidHlowci Order's performance paid tribute lo immigrant women, working
women, drudged women, Black women, and El Salvadoran
women. W i l l i superb grace, talent, compassion, and
humor, Wallflower Order communicated the breath and
depth of Ihe issues lo a moved and eiilhusiuslic audience.
C A S A is quite accustomed lo distinguishing between a
people and Iheir government. The situations in El Salvador,
Guatemala, and Honduras prompt us to note lhal a
separate morality, polity, and social reality may be juxtaposed with a murderous, dictatorial, and oppressive
governing leadership. II seems the Jewish people of Israel,
and Ihe public demand there for a formal inquiry which
followed whal the world acknowledges was a massacre in
Lebanon gives credence to this contention. Furthermore,
Israeli government responsibility for Ihe Lebanese massacre
is being seriously considered by Ihe board of inquiry which
in Ihe last week of November, gave Prime Minister Begin
and Defense Minister Sharon a week to strengthen their
claims thai they bear no responsibility for ils occurrence.
So, while some American Jews might have a tough lime
swallowing the bitter pill thai a Jew can be oppressive in Ihe
name o f his people, Israeli Jews seem not to be similarly
Finally, a word in response lo one of the Feminist
Alliance members whom Ihe ASP quoted as saying lhal
Wallflower Order "call themselves feminists when they're
really leftists." Feminism and leftism are not, of course,
mutually exclusive categories, Thai Wallflower Order has
as ils highest priority solidarity wilh women is loo obvious
to debale. Thai Iheir political views on women preclude a
conservative philosophy is equally obvious. They do not
stand for ihe status quo. Whal seems lo be al issue is a hidden criterion for acceptability to ihe S U N Y A Feminist
Alliance: namely, a carte blanche lo the Israeli government.

Knowledge of law
T u the Editor:
As a student and a Central Council member, I feci compelled to comment on the recent press regarding ihe impeachment issue and the allegations directed toward ihe
council as expressed in last Friday's editorial (December 3).
Allhough il is true lhal Central Council members arc
elected representatives, does lhal mean that we
automatically become versed in New York Stale Law?
Perhaps we are guilty of not knowing lhal we had to lake a
formal vole lo commence Executive Session Novemberl7,
bin noi only was there justification given but the decision
o f ihe chair was supported by the body as a whole. The
editor-in-chief assumes Ihe Council was noi aware of Ihe
Open Meetings Law. Ii is my contention lhal with ihe information lhal members had al Hie lime and being undei those
circumstances, Ihe body acted In Ihe way ihey ihoughl was
in ihe best Interest of the student population, D o you think
that Ihe members wanted lo be vindictive or could ii
possibly be that there were good Intentions? Believe il or
not, Central Council Representatives arc people too and
Ihey iry lo do iheir best while also dealing with the evidenl
pressures of being a student.
In regard to noi having a roll call vole during executive
session, il was noi " b l i n d l y ignored." I personally ihink
thai il was done with Neil's feelings in mind and the fact
lhal regardless of the outcome, the group would still have
lo work together in Ihe future. If the voting issue is such a
disservice to ihe constituents, how come none of the oilier
voles that ure noi taken by roll call have not been questioned? There are many limes lhal Council voles hy voice or
hand for certain reasons (for example, expediency).
The lasl point 1 would like lo mention is the general overlone of the editorial. Allhough il is Ihe purpose of the

In a story published In M.'ii'.w/av.Nov. 29,
state officials acknowledged that between
I977 and I98l, the university system's total
faculty decreased 2.3 percent, from 9,257 to
9,046. During the same period, minority
representation dropped even more — 3.8
percent — from 789 to 759. Female faculty
have not fared much better. The number of
women increased just more than 2 percent,
from 2,060 in I977 to 2,109 in 1981. As of
spring 1982, the Albany campus had just
under 8 percent minority members in its
faculty, reflecting the statewide percentage,

said Ncwsduy.
DeSolc agreed, emphasizing that the current recession makes it particularly hard to
conduct affirmative action. She said there is
a spirit of conservatism which manifests
Itself in less risk-taking by hiring personnel.

DeSolc cautioned that SUNYA's

followng the title game. "Albany State and Ithaca,
Potsdam and Hamilton arc the cream of the crop in the
state right now."
The Danes performance in their next four games will
tell how far they will rise. Albany will host their two main
rivals for the SUNYAC-East crown this week, as Oneonta
and Potsdam make early season appearances in University Gym. Following a 17 day layoff, the Danes will be back
in action in the Great Dane Classic. Albany will compete
against highly regarded Hamilton, Scranton and St.
Since their triple-overtime loss to Union the Danes have
been unstoppable, rolling to four consecutive victories by
an average margin of over 21 points. Despite their patient
ball control offense, Albany has averaged over 85 points
per game durng that stretch and has had a 20 point scorer
in three of the four games.
The last four games have seen the return of Dicckelman
to last year's ECAC All-Star team form, and the
emergence of Gatto as an all-around force on the court.
After both suffered through a disappointing performance
in the Capital District Tournament, the two senior cocaptains have sparked the team on their current steak.
During the first half of Saturday's Middlebury game,
Dicckelman was the dominating force, pouring in 12
points, grabbing nine rebounds anil blocking four shots.
Gatto has averaged almost 19 points over the last three
games including a career high 23 against Ithaca.
A pleasant surprise for Sauers has been the performance of his bench, a question mark before the season.
Greg Hart, Rich Hay and Luke Jamison have made key
c o n t r i b u t i o n s to the Danes winning effort.
Adam and Zadoorian switching between starting guard
and first man off the bench, the Danes seem to have the
depth and strength to carry them through the vigors of the

At the end of every tournament the public address announcer calls for the second place team to come forward
and receive their trophy. It has become a familiar scene
for the Albany State basketball team.
Following the Danes game against Ithaca Sunday for
the championship of the Ithaca College Tip Off Tournament, the captain of the losing team was asked to accept
the second place trophy. John Dicckelman rose from the
"1 did it as a joke. I just got so used to accepting the second place trophy. It feels good to finally win," said the
Albany co-captain.
With the 75-60 win over the Bombers, Albany had its
first tournament victory since last year's Great Dane
Classic and first on the road since the dramatic victory
over Potsdam in Maxcey Hall to win the SUNYAC in
March 1981.
"It's ibout time we won a tournament on the road,"
sophomores Dan Croutier and Jan Zadoorian said. For
both it was the first time they enjoyed victory in a tournament away from University Gym.
"We accomplished everything we wanted to. We talked
about it all night in the hotel, going over strategy," Tournament MVP Mike Gatto said. " I ' m sick of finishing second in tournaments. We worked hard for this."

Albany captures Ithaca Tournament
Ithaca. N. Y.
The last time the Albany State Great Danes had won a
tournament away from University Gym was nearly two
years ago In the SUNYACs. Way back then it was a
sophomore named Mike Gatto who silenced the raging partisans in Potsdam's Maxcey Hall by sinking two free throws
in overtime to give the Danes their first out-right SUNYAC
title. Sunday, Albany's long road tournament drought
came to an end in the Ithaca Invitational, and fittingly it
was a senior named Mike Gatto who provided the heroics.
Playing near his hometown, Owego, New York, Gatto
treated many of his fans to excellent basketball. His twogame performances in the tourney earned him tournament
Most Valuable Player honors. Gatto led the Danes with 23
points in the title game against the host Ithaca College
Bombers, which the Danes won 75-60. In addition, Gatto
had 14 points in Albany's first-round win over the Middlebury College, which Albany also won 86-53. Indicative
of his success, Gatto also performed well from the foul line
as he sank eight of nine in the opener and nine of twelve in
the title game.
"This is the kind of basketball Gatto is capable of playing. He has nearly reached his potential," said Albany
State basketball head coach Dick Sailers.
Gatto, a modest hero, offered a more team-oriented
perspective of the weekend's triumphs. "We were sick of
winning second place in every tournament." he said. "It
was a good tournament win for us. We deserved to win it. It
makes up for the Union loss."
The Danes were presented with a formidable task in
meeting the Bombers. Ithaca was last season's Independent
Collegiate Athletic Conference (ICAC) representative to
the NCAA tournament. Further, the Bombers had every
player back from that playoff team including a second team
AH-American in 6'4" Senior forward Tod Hart. Hart had
not scored under 10 points in any of Ithaca's last 38 games
including the Bomber's 88-78 preliminary victory over the
Eastern Connecticut State College Warriors in which he
scored 33 points.
But against Albany, the senior found himself forced to
the bench in early foul trouble. Hart committed three fouls
in the first eight minutes of the game.
"I know it was a bonus for us with Hart playing as little
as he did," said Sauers. Hart finished the game with only
ten points.
Nevertheless, Albany could not capitalize on his absence.

Drug deal robbery on quad ends in 3 arrests
"By Denisc Knight
Three arrests have been made through a joint investigation by university and Albany police alter a wheelchairbound victim wus robbed al gunpoint in his dorm room at
approximately 2:50 p.m. Tuesday, according lo university
police Investigator Doug Kearn.
Brian Reynolds, 20, of Slate Quad's Irving Hall, told
police that a black man in a stocking mask burst into his
room and stuck what "appeared lo be a gun" lo his neck
while Reynolds was in ihe process of a drug deal with
another black man. The robber then stole a sports hag
which Reynolds says contained ten ounces of marijuana.
The investigation later revealed that Ihe gun was a starter
pistol, Kearn said,
Reynolds said Ihe two black men "set him up" lo be
robbed, but he didn't realize they were working together
until police broke the case and connected the two men.
When asked about the possible set-up, Kearn said, "I
have no comment on that."
Reynolds was arrested by university police Thursday
morning and charged with possession of marijuana in Ihe
third degree. He was arraigned the same day in Albany
County Police Court by Judge Thomas W. Kccgan and
released in his own recognizance. Trial dale is set for
December 16.
Arrested yesterday by Albany police was Joseph Smith,
25, of 123 Livingston Avenue, Albany, when he turned
himself into Albany police headquarters, Smith has been
charged with robbery in the second degree, possession of
marijuana in the third and fourth degrees, possession of
stolen property, unlawful dealing with fireworks, and
growing marijuana. He is being held in the Albany County Jail. Trial date has been set for December 16.
James Mathias, 29, was arrested by Albany police Inst
night after a police slake-out at an address lie was known
to frequent, according to Kearn. Reynolds said Mathias is
the man who held the gun lo his neck and robbed him. He
is being held In the Albany City lock-up awaiting arraignment tomorrow, Kearn said. Warrants had been issued
for the arrests of both Smith and Mathias, Kearn added.
Reynolds said Smith, a former SUNYA student, was a
friend of his and thai he would "still trust Smith lo this
day," if police had noi revealed ihe conspiracy between
Smith and Mathias, Reynolds said that Ihe stolen marijuana and the starter pisiol were found by police in
Smith's apartment, bin Kearn refused lo confirm this. As
for Mathias, Smith said he had "never met him before,
except al gunpoint."
"Police had the whole thing in a nutshell in twelve
hours," Reynolds said. Now, Reynolds plans lo definitely
quit SUNYA nexl semester, possibly to transfer lo
another college or "maybe lake a roadtrip."
Dean of Student Affairs Neil C. Brown responded to
ihe incident by saying, "Those who sell drugs on campus
will be prosecuted. This has been Ihe university's policy
for the ptisl 15 years. When the information came to the
attention of ihe campus police, a warrant was Issued lor
