The Albany Stale Greai Danes dropped
out of the ECAC Tournament Friday evening with a 90-76 loss lo the University of
Rochester Yellowjackels. For senior eoeaptains John Dieckelman and Mike Gatlo, it
was their final game. As the pair walked off
the court with a minute and a half remaining, an era in Great Dane basketball history
had come to an end
"It was a tough way to finish tor my
seniors," said Albany State head basketball
coach Dick Sauers. "They deserved
For three seasons, Dieckelman has
spearheaded the Danes' attack. A transfer
from the Division I Colgate Reel Raiders, he
stepped immediately into Albany's starling
five in 19H0-KI. His accolades arc niuny Including all-tournament honors in every
tournament except one in which he participated during his career in Albany7 He

Gatto, a full four-year veteran of the
Albany program, also enjoyed success in a
Dane uniform. As a sophomore, he sank
two pressure packed free throws against (he
Potsdam Bears lo give the Danes their first
outright SUNYAC championship. Though
he then suffered from bouts of erratic play,
he did rise to the occasion more than once.
This season he led the Danes in capturing
the Ithaca Invitational by scoring 25 points
in the title game and earning tournament
Most-Valuable Player honors.
Friday evening the Danes did not sec
tlieir veterans off in an appropriate manner.
Missing the services of guard Jan
Zadoorian, who was ill and could not make
the trip, second-seeded Albany was severely
beaten by the third-seeded Yellowjackels.
The loss ended Albany's season with a 17-9
"It's the last game," said Dieckelman,
who finished his career in sparkling style
with 26 points lo lead all scorers. "It's a
disappointing way to go, but they really
beat us."
It could have been belter," added a subdued Gatto, closing out his long career with
a double-figure performance, II poinis.
"We tried tonight, but we didn't play a
good name. We didn't deserve to win, and
we didn't."
Looking to rebound after the previous
weekend's third place disappointment in
the SUNYAC tournament which knocked
Albnny out of NCAA playoff contention,
the Danes entered the ECACs with a single
purpose in mind. They were chiefly
motivated by the chance to dethrone host
Hamilton College, the nation's lliird ranked Division III learn. The Continentals had
beaten the Danes earlier in Ihc season. But
the Danes never had thai opportunity, Indicative of their luck all year, Ihe Dunes run
into another hot shooling leant in the
Rochester was led by the very hot hand of
freshman Joe Augustine. He hit 12 of 17
from Ihc field and lopped his team's list of
scorers with 25 points. As a team, the
Yellowjackels shot a sizzling 39 of 62.
The Yellowjackels clearly beat the slower
Dane team on transition.
Each time
Rochester .took possession of the ball, they
didn't waste any time getting It up court
and taking shots.
"We felt that we had lo'push ihc ball up
quickly and try lo get some Ihrce-on-lwos
and two-on-ones," said seventh-year
Rochester head basketball coach Mike
"When other learns score 90 points,
we're not going to win the game," added
Sauers. "That (Rochester! Is a good offensive team."
The Danes enjoyed their only lead of the
game very early on when Dan Croulicr, ending a fine sophomore campaign al point
guard, assisted Dieckelman lo open the
scoring. The Yellowjackels responded witli
three consecutive baskets to set the tempo
of the game.
But Albany remained In striking distance
throughout the half. Dave Adam hit an
IK-fooler lo knot the scoring al 12 points a
piece. He contributed 14 points to the
Danes' losing cause.

(AP) A federal judge yesterday blocked a law
denying financial aid to college students who
refused to register with Ihc Selective Service
U.S. Dislricl Judge Donald D. Alsop
issued a preliminary Injunction in u lawsuit
challenging a federal law forcing male
Students applying for tuition aid lo disclose if
they registered for the draft.
The suit challenged Ihe law signed by
President Reagan lasi Sept, 8. It required
male students applying for tuition help to
disclose whether they had registered for Ihe
draft, and prohibited them from receiving
any I'ederal assistance unless ilicy had done
"It takes no great stretch of Ihe imagination lo discern how plaintiffs' Identification
of themselves as non-registrants could Incriminate them or provide a significant link
in ihe chain of evidence lending lo establish
their guilt," Alsop wrote in Iris 26-page opinion.
Alsop's ruling is binding in Minnesota and
will sel a precedent for other judges around
ihc country, said Dun Lass, an attorney for
the Minnesota Public Interest Research
Group, which brought Ihe case. The ruling,
lie .said, is ihe first on Ihe law.
The plaintiffs in ihc case arc six
anonymous students represented by ihe Minnesota Civil Liberties Union and MI'IKG,
which represents college students around ihc
Lawyers for the students argued that the
law punishes non-rcgislered students who do
not face trial and have not been convicted of
a crime.
In Washington, Rep. Gerald B. H,
Solomon, R-N.Y., author of the requirement
linking student aid to draft registration, said
that if the injunction becomes permanent,
the Selective Service System would appeal il,
and he fell confident Ihc law would be
"Il isn't a question of incrimination," he
told a reporter. "No one is being found guilty without a trial. We simply added a
qualification for student aid. There are some
27 qualifications,"
James Tierney, president of SASU, said in
Albany "I think it's fantastic, It's a victory
for civil liberties and common sense." He
said the broad-based opposition to the
measure "gave faculty, financial aid officers,
students, administrators and trustees a
chance lo unite on an issue that's so unconstitutional."
Tierney was unsure about the range of
Judge Alsop's ruling, but said, "If it's legally
binding only in Minnesota, (the Student
Association of Ihe Slalc University) will Defiling court papers very soon."
Donald Whitlock, director of financial aid
at SUNY Albany, stressed thai efforts to
repeal the legislation in Congress would continue. "The sentiment in Congress is ugainsl
the administration on ibis matter," he said.
Tierney coneured, suying that student lobbyists would be working lo repeal the luw on
a federal busis.
The plaintiffs sued Ihe Selective Service
System, its director, Muj. Gen. Thomas K.
Turnugc, and the U.S. Department of Education and its Secretary, T.H. Bell.

dislricl and their own polling place al lire
gymnasium following a Gullderland Town
Board decision Tuesday.
I lie decision lo establish a new dislricl (22)
exclusively populated by SUNYA students
was necessary, according lo Gullderland
rown Supervisoi Kevin Moss, because
changes in lire area's dislricl boundaries posed a problem of overcrowding ai ihe
McKownvlllc Fire Department polling place
in Distiici I. Without ihc new plan this half
of SUNYA fell wiihin Ihe dislricl.
"This is great and I extend my congratulations lo everyone Involved," said SASU
President Jim Tierney. Ihe new proposal by
the Town of Guilder land is seen by Tierney
as Ihc direct result of requests by SUNYA
students for the establishment of polling
places on Ihe campus. "(SA President) Mike
Corso Iras been attending the Gullderland
Town Board meetings," said flerncy, "he
was pushing for ibis."
As a result of Ibis proposal SUNYA may
have Iwo polling places on campus foi ihe
next elections.
Students were assured, lasi fall, by Ihc
Albany County Boatd of Elections that a
polling place would he sel up al the Campus

lierney. This assurance cume alter student
leaders iosi court battles lo have booths set
up on campus during last year's November
elect ion. The board refused lo set up ihc
booths, protesting thai ihe request by ihc
students was too close to election time.
"Il should be made as easy as possible for
students lo vote," Corso stressed. "I think
we will now have a stronger student voice in
Ihc elections," lie said,
Presently there are about 2,(XX) students

According lo Moss, ihc board's plan for

Following the reapportionment, the
crowded McKownvillc hire Department polling place in Dislricl I, gained an additional
300 voters, explained Moss. Il was then proposed thai all of the area voters would vole al
SUNYA's gymnasium in an attempt lo
alleviate Ihc problem.
However, Moss explained linn Gullderland
residents rejected ihc plan, stating that they
would rather vole at the Fire Department.
To appease both parlies and eliminate the
crowding, said Moss, District 22 was proposed. The dislricl lines follow Perimeter Road,
on campus, from the Western Avenue enIrance to Fuller Road, taking in Indian and
part of Dutch Quad.
This decision was Ihc result of "polite
discussions by Ihe Guilderland residents who
wanted lo keep tlieir tradition of voting at the
McKownvillc Fire Department," said Moss.

State cuts delayed
(AP) Gov. Mario Cuomo announced Thursday that 7,587 layoff notices will be sent lo
state workers on Friday.
However, Coumo said that instead o f taking effect on A p r i l I as earlier planned, the
firings would be effective " a t the close of
business" on A p r i l 7.
The extra week on the j o b was agreed to by
Cuomo after leaders o f the state's two lurgesl
public employee unions said some state
workers would be treated unfairly if the April
I date were used.
The union leaders pointed out that because
the slate pays some of its workers one week
and some the next, extra vacation credit earned because of raises which were lo lake effect

laid o f f workers who were scheduled lo be
paid A p r i l 7.
Death bill vetoed
( U') Gov. Mario Cuomo vetoed a bill Thursday designed lo restore the dealh penally in
New York slate after a iwo-decade absence.
" I do not believe that responding lo
violence wllh violence or dealh is Ihc
answer," Cuomo wrote in a message accompanying I he veto, his first as governor.
The stale Assembly's chief dealh penalty
advocate, Assemblyman Vincent Graber,
D-Erle, has already admitted that he cannot
muster the 100 voles need in i h n i
150-member, Democratic-controlled house
to override Cuonio's veto.
The sales tax expansion, as planned by
Fink aides, would apply lo fees charged by
lawyers, engineers, architects, accountants
and some consultants.
Under current thinking, the sales tax
wouldn't apply to doctor's fees or fees charged by stockbrokers and other financial consultants.

The stale income lax surcharge that U U P

Brown Thursday in order lo have it available for mid-term
time. "I didn't wanl to spend a week or so deciding," said
Brown, "since mid-terms were upon us. I made a definite
decision based on the input of three sludenls who were studying in LC 19."
In the pasl, all lecture centers were locked regularly al 10
p.m with the exception of 19. The decision to extend
operating hours In LC 19 was the result or an experiment
conducted by ihe Department of Academic Affairs.
During midterm point Insi semester LC 19 was left open
past the 10 p.m. lock-up to accommodate sludenls who
were forced out of the library because or reduced library

According 10 Dean Brown, "The feedback was
positive." Rozctt added, "About 20-30 people studied
there nightly."
Although ihe extended lecture center hours prosed successful, lecture center 19 has been locked regularly al 10
n.m. since ihe beginning of spring semcslcr, even though
ttudents are now in the midst of midterms, Rozeti explain:d that, "we didn't open it al the beginning of the semester
because we weren't convinced there was a need for it."
Recently sludenls have been protesting Ihe lack of sludy
space and the need for the lecture centers lo remain open
afler 10 p.m. Complaints about ihe locked lecture center
were registered with ihe University Police security department. Secretary lo the department Nancy l.oeux received
several calls referring to the locked centers. "They wauled

Dean Drown explained the delay in reopening LC 19. "I
was aware of the fact that midterms were coming.
Although evidence Indicated students were using the space
efficiently, I hesitated because we wouldn't have the workstudy students available." He later decided to go ahead
with the plan after talking with sludenls.

The Office of Residential Life is presently
in the process of devising a new procedure
loi housing sign-ups and assignments with
the eventual goal being of having one efficicnl mechanized system, according 10 Asslslain Director of Residential Life Dean Knapton.
The process of assigning students will only
change from "a manual syslem to a computcr assisted system," explained Director of
Residential Life John Martone. Incoming
students will still be assigned housing to meet
their needs but il will be done faster.
Thc new addition for this semester, said
Knaplon, will be a scanner form which will
be given to the student to fill out after lie has
paid his room deposit.
The form will be similar to thai of Ihe blue
residence license application previously used,
and include all necessary information, said
Knaplon, such as smoking and living
prefereiices, credit hours, class year, and
previous campus address. An added feature
might be a pre-punched lollery number. This
addition would save time in signing up for
rooms and reduce anxiety and stress for those
sludenls having 10 pick Ihelr rooms by lotlery.
Martone said he is looking forward 10 the
computers handling and reducing problems
of room vacancies and room changes, "We
want sludenls to be able 10 live with ihe people they want to live with, where they wanl 10
live," he said. "Willi the computers we'll
hopefully be able to see a printout saying

computerized syslem where an incoming

They will also he told Ihelr quad, hall, suite,

Presently, Knaplon is investigating thai
proposal due to concern over flic Buckley
Amendment, a privacy of information act,
"We want 10 check out all ends," explained
Knaplon, adding, "We don'l wanl 10 cause
problems by invading privacy."
According 10 Knaplon, Ihe new approach
10 the housing sign-up will not dcindividualize the sludenls' needs. "Those
preferences," he said, "will still be taken into
account." Martone added, "The new syslem
will give us more flexibility to meet sludenls'
needs heller."
The changeover from a manually operated
syslem to a computer assisted system will go
through the UAS (University Auxilary Services) computers. The Univac compuler
syslem on campus will not be used. Martone
explained that 100 many people need these
computers and they are In constant use. "We
are using ihe same company and computers

"Bui we are 1101 relying on UAS personnel.
We've hired a private programmer 10 develop

Martone said,"The added cost of computcr programs and lime was not a factor in

The priority syslem, Marlone explained,
works as follows, Every sludenl is assigned a

" I don't think it's the size'or dollar
amount o f money; I think it's the
fact that it's the students' money
thai makes it so awesome," explained committee
Hamilton South.
Committee Chair Johanna Sarraceo added "Right now we're
looking at it (Ihc budget | per group.
When we're done, then 1 think the
amount Is going to hit u s . "
Earlier litis semester, explained
Snrrucco, groups were given a three
week period lo submit a funding request to the budgel committee. To
dale, approximately 80 groups have
applied for funding.
All applications arc reviewed by
the budget Committee, said Sarrac-
co. Often, a member o f the committee will meet with a representative from the group to discuss Ihc
group's budget proposal. Additionally, committee members compare price estimates supplied by the
group with outside estimates,
The'commlttce members, assisted
by Schneyman, then make any
necessary revisions and the budget
is voted on by the committee. Sarracco noted that Ihc committee has
made mostly minor revisions in Ihc
22 budgets they have reviewed so
When the Committee finishes
reviewing all budgets, which Sarracco hopes to have done by March 25,
the entire budget is passed on lo the
SA President.
The president can make any
changes he feels ace necessary.
However, Corso said he would nol
make changes without contacting
the members of any group whose
budget he changes. Adding that he
does anticipate making some
changes in budget commit lee's proposal, Corso explained, " I don't
want lo Interrupt the budget committee, Hopefully with my guidance
lo them., and then their guidance to

Corso then proposes his version
o f .the budget to Central Council.
Council spends several nights
reviewing the budget, and during
this lime groups can appeal to
Council If they arc dissatisfied with
their budget.
After Ihc entire budgel has been
reviewed, Council voles on il as a
whole. Then the budget goes back
to the SA President lo be signed.
According lo Council Chair Jeff
Fromm, the president's and councils term of office cannot end until
after the budgel has been passed
and signed.
Corso contends thai right now
council members do nol fully
understand Ihc budgetary process.
Stale Quad representative Jeff
Schneider agreed with Ihis, adding
that "more than half (of council)
doesn't know how Ihc budgel process w o r k s . "
Stale Quad representative Suzy

However, both .Schneider and
Aulella were optimistic thai by the
lime the budgel comes lo Council,

Sarraceo said she plans to put
together a packet for Council
members, explaining the budgetary
process. In addition, she pointed
out that minutes from all budget
committee meetings are posted in
the SA office and that a rationale
for each budget Is included in ihe
According to Schneyman, the

here are certain ways that laws are supposed
to work. .We have a structure in this country
that protects citizens from their government.
The Bill of Rights was intended to and does exactly
that — protects citizens from unwarranted intrustion
by the government. That doesn't stop bills that
violate these ideals from being proposed and even
signed into law..
lo certify if people registered or not. The vast majority of financial aid officers and university administratiors felt uncomfortable being used to poll™
an already unpopular law. It would have greatly
complicated the start of a desperately needed jobs
training program.
The most frightening part of the law was the way it
attempted to punish people for a crime they have not
been convicted of. For any crime, an individual must
be indicted, tried and convicted before sentence can
be passed. Anyone who could not prove thai the
registered for the draft would be denied financial aid
under the amendment — whether they registered or
One of these bills was stuck down in federal court
yesterday. The-Solomon Amendment is the popular
name of a rider attached to the defense appropriations bill passed over the summer. For those of you
not yet aware, this measure required every student to
sign a statement that they cither arc not required to
register for the draft of have already done so. The
law forbid them from receiving federal aid if they did
not submit this statement. The bill also required that
people involved in federal job training programs sign
similar statements.
Opponents of the law fell thai the requirement
would amount lo self-incrimination. The Minnesota
judge agreed, saying that non-registrant's identification of themselves as not participating in the draft
program could incriminate.
J udge Donald Alsop docs not have a reputation as
a knee-jerk liberal. He's a conservative judge — a
Nixon appointee. The case is certain to be appealed,
lhe images (his conjures up arc not pleasant. The
police slate mentality this kind of legislation comes
out of runs against the grain of our democratic traditions. The government realized thai the showcase

as this.
but Alsop's ruling is very likely to stand. Why would
a conservative judge declare a law thai supported
such traditionally rightist ideas like military service
and "national duty"?
Because the Solomon Amendment is simply a very
bad law. It would have swamped already overworked
financial aid offices with undesirable work like trying
The federal government still hasn't recognized thai
draft resistance is still very pervasive. Over a million
men have refused lo register for the draft, and
millions more are actively working against conscription with these resistors, It will lake many more cases
like this one before the government reaches that conelusion.
Glass houses and stones
The February 28, 1983 issue of the New York Times carried a rather medium-si/ed article on Ian Smith's defiance
of the new Zimbabwe government.
A western diplomat was quoted as saying, "Smith is saying some of the right things, but he is the wrong man to say
them." Nothing could be further from the truth. A closer
examination of who Smith was and still is will lead to the
conclusion that he is the least qualified individual to howl
about his treatment by the Zimbabwe officials.
Dr. JaphetM. Zwana
In December the government had cause to detain, search
and confiscate Smith's passport because there was evidence
thai he was slocking weaponry to be used at a propitious
time lo overthrow the stale. While overseas (US) on a visit,
he advised the US government against extending financial
aid lo the Mugabe Administration. Since April 18, 1980,
Smith has not accepted lhe conversion of the country from
Rhodesia to Zimbabwe. Publicly and secretly he still owes
allegiance lo Rhodesia.
Mr. Smith has chosen to ignore the racial scars that were
Inflicted by him during lhe Black-White war thai is supposed lo have lasted for seven years. Actually, the liberation
struggle in Zimbabwe began in the 1950's.
Whatever inequities there are wilhin the government,
they are such that as applied to him and his white accomplices, Smith should not gripe about. Some of them are
the stuff of which his barbaric regime was made.
He is said to be vehemently opposed to Robert Mugabe's
rather premature call for a one-parly slate. How can
anyone forget that when whites ruled, only.white parlies
were allowed lo exist? Under Ian Smith, the Rhodesia Parly
virtually monopolized the regime. All potential African
parlies were proscribed before ihey were formed and the
leaders detained, arrested, exiled or even killed.
There arc vigorous complaints that there is .widespread
press censorship wilhin Zimbabwe, During his era, censorship was clamped down on all newspapers including lhe two
national papers the Herald and the Chronicle. Africans
were forbidden to operate any papers and several foreign
correspondents were cither arrested/deported or barred
from the country.
Smith has offered a daring motion demanding lhe
resignation of the government thai was elected by about 80
percent of the population. His regime held sway on account
of being empowered by 10 percenl of the population. He
cannot pretend lo forget that he presided over an illegal
government which had won official recognition only from
the illegal regime of South Africa. His regime's legislative
design was a guarantee for continued while supremacy
backed up by perpetual martial law.
Concerning the emerging powers that his regime had arrogated to itself, Smilh explains, "we were at war." There
may be no conventional or guerilla shooting between
Jilaeks and Whites but the emotional, social and economic
war goes on. The effects of while colonialism and slave
labor have hardly vanished in three years. One of the putrid
anachronisms that are reminiscent of the dark past is lhe
fact that Smith boasts the leadership of the Republican
Front which holds ten of twenty seats reserved in Parliament for Whites only,
According to Smith, "the terms of peace agreed upon in
In the March 8 Albany Student Press, the editorial
"The threats stoop low" stated that the NYPIRG fee is
refundable. In fact, this fee is refundable only at CUNY
and private schools, not at SUNY schools. In 1974,
NYPIRG went to court in an effort to make the fee refundable, but the courts sided with SUNY's claim that this
would cause too much bureaucracy.
Wc regret the error.
1979 were the worst thing thai could have happened lo ite
white people in this country." These arc definitely
crocodile's tears. The only parlies that were satisfied with
lhe Lancaster awards were the Zimbabwe-Rhodesia regime
under Smith and Muzorewa and the British government.
The liberation leaders signed Ihcm under International
duress. The reasons were that, according lo the document
whites still held lhe key to economics, industry, the land,
employment and politics, He complains thai "more anil
more encroachments have been made on human rights anil
freedoms." The application of double standards is obvious. These rights and freedoms are valid only when .implied to whiles.
Mr. Smith, who once confidently forecast thai majority
rule would never occur in (Rhodesia), "not in a thousand
years" might as well resign himself to lhe realistic fael that

oot-what? No. Footworks. It's the
annual production, choreographed and performed by SUNYA's
very o w n dancers. Whether

emotional and above all . . . creative.

Divining Down Under
Since S e p t e m b e r , these
motivated, dedicated and o l course
talented students have been devoting long
hours to formulting their ideas and emotions Into movement, ultimately to perfect
this movement Into dance.
Dance Is an art. It Is a means to express' a
mood, a feeling or tell a story. All dance
has a purpose — that Is lo affect Its audience, to create a bond between that audience and the performer so that a nonverbal message can be understood or simply
In a rehearsal performance, Tuesday
night, Footworks was successful. The
dance Is alive, entertaining and engaging.
There are thirteen pieces In all. Each has Its
own personality . . . light and airy like
"Icarus", full of whirling confusion like
"Jusl A Lark" or romantic obscurity as In
"but Anyway . . . Goodnight".
Classical as well as Jazz and Contemporary music lovers are properly cared for.
Guest musical appearances Include Slevle
Wonder, The Pat Metheny Group, Rolling
Stones and Ihe Who. The traditional ballet
enlhuslasls will be more than delighted wllh
"Le Waltz", a ballroom scene of fourteen
dancers. It Is one of only two pieces
choreographed by a faculty member, all
Ihe other choreographers are students. For
the animal In you, "Jungle Jazz" should be
enough to wet your appetite, and finally (or
the )ocks "Halfllme" will make you (eel
right at home.
The pieces are arranged so that no one
will lose Interest: heavy gripping pieces are
followed, In contrast, by bouncy, cheerful
ones. The pace, style and musical accompaniment change enough to keep even the
more restless, like myself, content, The
costuming Is, for the most part flattering,
colorful and appropriate. Admirably, Ihe
dancers display the sincerity of professionals, but perhaps more Importantly

of young performers. Enthusiastic energy
radiates from the faces — this Is the high
point of their year.
About forty-five students actually dance

with Dance Council's sponsorship and the

Footworks Is more than )usl entertainment. Its value Is far more reaching. What

some tricks on some songs. "Rlny Me U p . "
for example has a cute little section at the
beginning where it sounds like some
cavemen were brought in lo grunt and

songs on the record rely on either tricks or
heavy metal thunder, however. In lact,

Amphletl and guitarist Mark McEntee delve

Are the requirements (or transfer

Kolmln's reply Is that the transfer student
must have a higher cum. Certain basic
courses are Ihe same In both a four-year
and a Iwo-year school but the University
recognizes that the standards of a Iwo-year
college might be significantly lower and
therefore the transfer students cum should
acceed the norm. "There Is validity In being
fairly strict." The exact cum needed to be

The glad tidings come from places like
the Career Planning and Placement Office
and the Humanities and Fine Arts Advisement Center, and a man named Beck, and
ihe agreement is that liberal arts majors are
a lot more marketable in the real world
than they've ever thought, and maybe
more than ever before.
That's nol to say fhat it's all good news:
those same offices will sllll remind ynu that
sludents who have majored In engineering,
accounting, sales-marketing, business administration, or computer science are more
likely lo receive Job offers and higher salary
offers than liberal arts students. However,
thanks to Robert \i, Beck and the research
he's done at Ihe Bell System, it's becoming
apparent lhat while liberal arts students
often have greater difficulty obtaining initial
employment In business, once employed
they can compete successfully with people
who have majo ed in oilier fields,
The Bell System employs about 6,000
collegu graduates each year (of whom
more than one third are liberal arts
graduates), and seemed a likely place to initiate a study of hiring trends over Ihe past
20 years. The Bell research learn Isolated a
variety of qualities which seem to go hand

Bell followed the careers ol college
graduates for over two decades, charting
how well "non-technical" and "technical*
majors" did in each of Ihese so-called
"assessment centers."
Some of the findings were expected,
others weren't. As you might suspect, the
non-technical majors {which include
business as well as humanities and social
sciences) were superior to math, science,
and engineering majors when It came
down to leadership skills, oral communications, and "forcefulness of personal
Impact" (which sounds like a scouting
report on a great college lineman).
Likewise, the technical majors were the
high scorers In quantitative skills.
The surprise came when the researchers
took an overall rating of potential for middle management. At a speech given on
March 4, 19H1, before the Association ol
American Colleges, Beck revealed that of
those employees considered to have
potential for middle management, 46 percent were humanities majors, 26 percent
were engineers, and 31 percent were
business majors! A n d moving from

wagging tails of dogs in the park
and kites in the sky. then I think of F.ddy.
Eddy was a short, squat kid of seventeen
when I first met him, with a shock of
blonde, cherubic hair and a face like a
cauliflower w|th a smile in the middle of 11,
He was working an acting Internship up in
the Catskills with a little summer troupe of
artistic purists from New York City. Their
theatre was a ramshackle cowbarn that still
had its original cockcrow weathervane on
the roof
Eddy spent more time with nails in his
mouth and a hammer in one hand doing
maintenance work between performances
than being on stage doing bit parts. But you
had to expect that from these players. They
had cast aside the egotistic aspects of being
an "actor In N Y C " for the sake of strong,
original, pure performances. Thursday
through Sunday they opened performances for the public. By sundown the
pasture around the barn would be filled
with the pick up trucks and family sedans of
the simple country people who had never
gotten the opportunity to see a professi o n a l performance. The rest of the week,
the conservatory held "provos" readings,
opening up the new talent, testing, experimenting, feeling out ideas without the
spectre of sellability.
Eddy loved that place, hidden in the
mountains, with a fresh stream running
past the fire hazard boarding house where
professionals and amateurs shared living
space. His room was the size of a king-sized
stage trunk. Plaster trembled from the colourless walls every time a band of roaches
stomped by. His mattress's stuffing was
more out than in, and the only door was a
scrap piece of sheet left behind In the antiquated linen closet. But I never saw him
happier than when he'd be slitting on the
edge of the mattress, a pile of scripts at his
feet, sewing the bright red and green patches back onto a harlequin's outfit before
the next show.
"Come on Lis, stay and help bring out
dinner," he asked one afternoon, and held
out a plump hand to lead me to the kitchen. The supplies were in a dank root
cellar, modernized thanks to the efficiency
of Eddy by one light bulb. All I saw were
pots, pots. pols. and more metal pots filled
with hard boiled eggs and navel oranges.
This was dinner?
"Yeah, and breakfast too. We try to work
through lunch to make it last longer," Eddy laughed and popped an egg past his
Jowls. Through the yolk he garbled
something about the intensity of Strindberg
and what a damm headache the set for
Tiny Alice was becoming. I just smiled and
picked up some oranges. As we headed up
the stairs, a step gave way and Eddy fell
through, saved only by his belly from landing back in the cellar
"Don't iell anyone about the step - they'll
only worry. I'll fix it during dinner, there's
'nough time before makeup starts."
Cubby, idealistic, theatre nut Eddy.
Without him I may never have seen how
rough, how primitive the conditions were
for the people that made a whole other
world come alive on stage. For every
elaborate costume there were a repatched
pair of overalls back in the room. For every
sumptuous dinner the characters ate, there
were eggs and fruit for the actors. But Eddy
didn't care. He'd only laugh, and waddle
off to the barn with a hammer and a script.
When spring comes, when I know the
stream by the empty barn is thawing, 1
remember sweet, homely Eddy. The conservatory became a repertory, a statusattracting, snob appeal company whose
original members went back to New York
after all. Instead of eggs and oranges, they
held cast parties at French restaraunts. I
went to see them once, to recapture the
simple, beautiful "Theatre" I used to know.
It wasn't the same anymore. They got a
standing ovation, from the tailored suits
and strings of pearls sitting in the audience,
but not from me. In the air of the new stage
was stench of commerclallty, not old hay
and barn owls.
Eddy left one summer, to study acting at
SUNY Purchase. I hope he never comes
back to see what happens when ideals
become compromised, because art and life
need more people like Eddy.

I'u the Editor;
As a student o f Albany State for the past lour years, and
as a Intern In Ihc New York Slnle Senate litis semester, I
have been able to gallic/ a perspective from both sides o f
Ihc political fence. This leads me lo comment on the SUNY
Lobby Day at ihe Stale Capitol, Monday, February 281 hT
Each year, SUNY students gnllanily gather together to
light the proposed Stale budget. This is one o f ihe few
limes that us students o f Ihe 80's can find our fellow
students concerned with something besides grades, U A S ,
and scoring ihe big buck. Though ihe students protesting
are filled with ihe best Intentions, the effect they produced
only helped make litem their ownworst enemy. Students
marched through the Capitol Buildings sloppily dressed,
loud, rude, pushy, and worsl o f all, mis- or ill-informed. I
saw many students go into Ihe legislators' offices, noi
knowing what district the person was f r o m , his/her committees, experience, or political affiliation.

Appropriate actions
To Ihc Editor:
I would like to take this opportunity to address the student population o f S U N Y A concerning the ASP editorial
on ihc actions o f the Rcvisionisi Zionist Alternative (RZA)
during World Culture Week.
Firstly, you rightly expressed the notion that Ihe week's
events concern a "celebration o f cultural diversity," but
you failed lo explain how a Star o f David, a Jewish
religious symbol found in every synouoouc, dripping in
blood celebrates the culture o f the Arab people. Ihe
edilorial continued to state that " i h e whole idea behind
World Week (is) accentuating Ihe positive nature of the
university's diversity,"
Indeed, ihis "positive diversity" is
one o f (lie outstanding features o f ihis school; however,
one should nol misconstrue this to include Ihe right o f any
one group lo blatantly attack the religious culture o f
another group.
Secondly, lo use Ihe words o f Ihe ASP; "ignorance of
other people's traditions leads to misunderstanding of
oilier people's intentions." The ignorance in Ibis Instance
lies not with RZA hul with Ihc author o f the editorial who
ignores Ihe traditions o f Arab Blood Feuds, (witness
Lebanon's Civil War,) and Arab intentions concerning the
Jewish Slate, (sec p.4, ASP, March 4, "Professor Calls on
Moslems lo Liberate Israel,)
Thirdly, Ihc ASP claims that a group o f students from
Ihe RZA " j u s l aren'l ready for diversity" because they lore
down " u cultural display by some Arab students during
World Week Ethnic Block Party." What the R Z A is not
ready for is Anti-Jewish propaganda to he hung on this
campus without adequate response, and besides, the central
question still remains: how is a picture o f Menachem Begin
ethnically Arab?

To the Editor:
Thanks to an article in the ASP about the speech at
SUNYA o f Professor Mohammed Yadigary (ASP, March
4, 1983, pg.3), students on this campus should now have a
much greater underslanding o f the aspirations o f the
Islamic world. Specifically, it Is the common goal o f Arab
and other Moslem countries lo eliminate Israel, the Jewish
Professor Yadigary's call for Moslems lo "liberate
Israel" echoes the thoughts and words o r Moslem and Arab
leaders o f the last thirty-five years. More importantly, it
highlights the fact that the demand o f these leaders for
another "Palestinian" Arab country (the first one is Jordan) has been and continues to be nothing more than a ploy
lo further the cause o f Israel's destruction. What bothers
these Arab leaders is not the conditions o f their "Palestinian" Arab brothers, because if that was Ihc case, they
would slop keeping Ihcm In squalid refugee camps in their
own country, and slop sending them o f f l o die in hopeless
wars against Israel. What realljj bothers the Arab leaders is
Ihe same thing thai bothered Nazi leaders; the Jews in llicir
midst. This altitude is exemplified by Ihe statement on
Radio Amman (Jordan) in 1970 thai "Israel's existence in
Ihe heart o f Ihc Arab people is an absurdity and ought lo be
gol rid o f by any means whatsoever." This "religious"
Jew-hatred was repealed more recently by King Hussein o l
Jordan, at Ihc Islamic Conference in 1980. He said " T h e
Islamic nation and just believers will not accept the situation of die land o f Ihe Prophet's flight l o heaven...being
captive o f Zionist occupation."
If American college students are going l o discuss Ihe
Arab-Israeli conflict, and hopefully ihus j o i n in Ihe worldwide effort to promote peace i n the Middle East, it is vital
dial they al least understand the basic motives and Intentions of Ihe parlies involved. Without knowing what Ihe
problems are, discussions o f their solutions arc futile. Il is
my sincere hope that students on this campus, and people
everywhere will take a little time to learn at least some o f
Ihe truth about this crucial issue.
The ASP reported thai students found Ihe legislators
"not accessible." What is no! understood, though, is that
Mondays are a very busy day al the Capitol; legislators have
just arrived in t o w n , they have meetings, appointments,
etc., and their staff is equally occupied. I f people would
have liked lo have mcl with a certain legislator, they should
have the consideration l o call in advance and arrange an appointment.Another focal point is that students should
know more about Ihc issue they are dealing with; how can a

Amendment protection docs not extend to "Falsely yelling
fire in a theater;" here too, the Arabs acting in a malicious,
and may 1 add stupid, manner arc not protected.
Lastly, the ASP said the R Z A action was "inappropriate" and equated the group with "vigilantes." This
indefensible point hardly deserves comment. However, as
the ASP feels it must slander the R Z A , I feel compelled to
comment. R Z A acted in the only appropriate manner opened to it. There was a request made to have the poster taken
down, and it was ignored. The University aulhoritics clearly displayed their indifference to the circumstances by
allowing the posler to be hung in the first place, When a
particular University official was approached t o have it
removed, he said he would not remove it and would also
allow swastikas to be displayed as culture, The R Z A al no
lime resorted to violence, as vigilantes are known to d o .
And when responsible University officials finally arrived,
the RZA gave its full cooperation In alleviating the situation.
It will be a sad day in the history o f this University when
n the name o f " c u l t u r e " one group will be able lo defame
.he religious and national heritage o f another people.
—Steven Hllsenruth
President of RZA

Tit ihc Editors
In ihc March 4 issue o f ASP, Nancy Crowfoot reported
on my tall' given al SUNY during World Week. While Ihe
main lext of ihe article was correct and aptly reflected my
lalk, Ihe headline,"I'lofessor calls on Moslems lo Liberate
Israel," and ihc lead quote, "Israel Is Ihe agent o f imperialism 111 Palestine, It is Ihe duty of all aware Moslems lo
liheiaie thai h i n d , " were emphasized making il appear lhat
my lalk concerned the Issue o f Israel vs. Moslems.
In fact my lalk had nothing lo do with Israel or Moslem
conflict wiili Israel. The word Israel was neither mentioned
nor implied 1n the ciuiii' forty minute lalk. The particular
quote emphasized was said in reply to a question from the
audience al ihc end o f the talk.
The first paragraph contains material arranged out of
order lo emphasize the same point. Again the quote,
"Israel is the agent o f Imperialism and it is the duly o f all
aware Moslems to liberate land taken away hy European
Jews," was nol said during Ihe lalk but in reply lo ihe
aforementioned question.
I did make Ihe statements mentioned in Ihc article and
have no objection lo Ihcm being attributed to me.
However, I feel that these quotes were deliberately emphasized lo sensationalize (lie report,

Cultural expression
To Ihc Edlton
Concerning lasi Thursday's confrontation between RZA
and ASA members al an Arab " c u l t u r a l " display, let us
define culture in Ihe sense il is commonly used. According
10 the Random House College Dictionary, definition no,3,
culture is " t h e sum lolal o f ways o f living built by a group
of human beings and transmitted from one generation to
another." I f , for the sake o f argument, you will accept this
definition, then yes, the picture o f the victims o f last
September's massacre is an expression o f Arab culture.
Violence among Arabs is a common, accepted way o f seiilin grievances, and has been for years. However, I'm nol
sine thai lliis shameful aspect o f Arab culture is exactly
whai the ASA wanted to display to Ihc university community.
Rather, by superimposing a picture o f Mennchcin Begin
and n bloody Jewish star on ihe unfortunate victims o f the
massacre, the Arabs spread a myth among a uninformed
public that the Jewish people in general, and Menachem
Begin, In particular, lire solely responsible for ihe massacre.
Or, have Begin and Jewish stars suddenly become expressions o f Arab culture?
As a former leader o f Jewish activity on ihi.s campus, I
urge Jewish students l o get involved, and to continue t o
stand up against anti-Semitic incidents, whenever a n d
wherever they occur.

As Ihe AMIA floor hockey rcguliir season comes lo
a close and with ihe playoffs beginning shortly, this
year's post-season qualifiers will encounter a new
playoff formal.
In the past, the playoffs were single diminution.
This gave weaker learns a chance lo upset stronger
teams in a one game playoff. This year's formal includes a besl of three series for the semi-finals and a
best of five series for the finals. "The idea is so thai Ihe
besl learns prevail and Ihe good teams don't get upset
by u team that just gets lucky that day," explained
head hockey official Gary Klein.
League I, the more competitive division, consists of
11 team's, with the tr five learns making the playoffs.
In ihe opening round Ihe fourth place learn plays ihe
fifth place team for the wild card spot. The second
place teams plays the third place team. The first place
team plays Ihe wild card learn.
Undefeated-defending champion Buzz-Brothers
(8-0) is Ihe only learn in League I thai has clinched a
playoff spot so far. The Buzz-Brothers, led by |
defenscmen Andy Martin and Jeff Fredericks should
go all Ihe way again this year. The Buzz lead Ihe league I
in both goals scored (67) and least goals given up (13).
Five of the lop six scores in Ihe league are on the BuzzBrothers.
Although Ihe Buzz-Brothers are the favorites,
Defectors (3-2-1) could give Ihcm a challenge for the title. Sudden Death (3-1 -I) are an outside shot. The dark
horses of the league arc, Slippery When Wet (4-2-2)
and Mother Puckers (5-2-i). The Mother Puckers, Ihe
biggest surprise this year arc a freshman team. They
should be the learn to beat in the future.
• n League 2, which consists of five division, with
each division consisting of '.0 teams. The tori four
teams in each division make Ihe playoffs. The lirst
place teams in each division arc ranked one to five, the
second place learns are ranked six lo 10. The third
place teams are ranked II-I3 and Ihe fourth place
teams are ranked 16-20.
Teams ranked 13-20 play the opening round lo
determine four wild card spots. This reduces the field
lo 16 teams. The teams then play single elimination
games until ihcy reach the semi-finals. The number
one ranked team plays the number 16 ranked team,
number two ranked team plays Ihe number 13 ranked
leant, number three ranked team plays the number 14
ranked team, etc.
The following teams have clinched playoff spots: in
division 2b — Grateful Head (7-1); In division 2p —
Marci Haters (8-0-1), Puck Offs (5-I-I), Rat Palrol 2
(5-1-I) and Berman's Bullies (4-I-3); in division 2r —
The Clapshols (6-I-I); in division 2g — Wusle Product

Brew's Brothers (7-1), The Force (6-2-I), Tuff Duns 4
(6-0-1) and Silencers (6-2).
Overall, Ihe Murci Haters of division 2p are the
favorites to win the title, based on their experience.
The Marci Haters are second overall In goals scored
(47) and least goals given up (6). The Brew's Brothers
of division 2h should give the Marci Haters a serious
challenge. The Brew's Brothers lead the league in goals
scored (49). Waste Product Hockey of division 2g Willi
Mike Hoffmann and Chris Puheviiz, two of the Ihrcc
leading scorers in the league should keep Ihcm competitive throughout the playoffs. Tuff Darts 4 of division 2h and Ihe Clapshols of division 2r could be the

Although the N C A A Division I I I basketball playoffs continue lor
two more weekends, this year's Albany Slate Great Dane season is
long but a memory. It ended abruptly with lust week's loss to
Rochester In Ihc ECACs. The Danes finished with a 17-10 record. Tor
u leum which initially charged out to un 8-1 murk and ihen wenl on to

season non-losing streak to 28, while Ills Dunes appeared in postseason tournament play for the
seventh straight year, the year may
have been more of a disappointment than a success. After all, the
team never did achieve its primary
goal to return 10 the N C A A Division I I I playoffs.

the front court. Led by u pair of
three-year veterans in senior cocaptains John Dleekelnian and
Mike Ciatlo, the Dunes appeared
ready to grapple with one of the
toughest Division 111 schedules in
the nations. It would lake the Dunes
on u loin of some of the country's
best Division I I I learns.

"One's never in support of a board increase," LaPorta maintained.
However, she said, SA was "ecstatic" Ihe Increase was only 4.5 percent.
While il is an increase, LaPorta stressed, it is only a slight increase.
Zahm said Ihe $17,000 could possibly be made up by the corporation's
other Investments, He maintained thai these are "simple Investments (such
