ASSOCIA n: sriiii i s union
Andy Seras was unsuccessful in his bid to
become Albany's first Division I A i l American since Warren Crow accomplished
that real in 1967.
Competing at the N C A A Division I national championships in Oklahoma City,
Oklahoma, for the first lime, Seras won one
match and lost his second.
He pinned Drexcl's Phil Goltlick at 1:50 of
the first period to win his first round match.
In the second round, Seras fell behind early
to Tony Arena o f l l o f s l r a . Trailing the
Atlantic Coast Conference champion 8-1
after two periods, Seras' comeback fell short
as he lost the match, 10-8.
In order for Seras to advance in the lottrnamcni following the defeat, Arena needed
lo defeat his next opponent, Darrel Burlcy o f
Lehigh. Hurley was the defending national
champion and is one of only five wrestlers in
N C A A history to make il lo the finals, four
consecutive years. Hurley defeated Arena
12-3 knocking Seras out of the tournament.
By virtue of his pin of Cioltlick, Seras
amassed two team points for Albany.

" I just didn't wrestle well at a l l , " Seras
said. " I l was just an off weekend."
" A n d y did a real good j o b . Il was a good
tournament for him. It's a big event, probably very lough on a guy wrestling there for
the first l i m e , " Albany Slate wrestling coach
Joe DcMeo commented, " W e are disappointed ihal he didn't make All-Amcrican,
bin he didn't have a good match againsl

he did a good j o b in the third p e r i o d . "
Scias' performance completed what could
arguably be called the finest season ever by
an Albany State wrestling learn, The team
finished seventh in the nation, their highesi
making ever and had lour Division I I I A l l Amcricans, another team record. The Danes
recorded a 13-4 dual meet record against
what DcMeo termed verj lough competition.
" T h i s was probably lite best team I coached in terms o( Individuals," DcMeo said.
The Danes entered litis season trying to top
last years record breaking season. In 1981-82,
Albany placed |2th in the nation and had
ihree All-Americans.

Albany began the season where they left
off the year before by capturing die Great
Dane Classic lor the second year in a tow.
The Danes overwhelmed the 25 other Division I, II and I I I schools by sending nine
wrestlers lo the finals out of a possible 20
finalists. Seras easily defended his title, and
Rob Spagnoli won his first Classic champion-
ship by defeating Icammalc Harvey Siaullcrs
ai 126-pounds.
Following a three week layoff, the Danes
began their dual nieel season. Albany crushed their early season opponents including impressive vielories over S U N Y A C
Blnghamlon, 40-6, Potsdam, 31-8, and Cortland, 32-9, in the same day. DcMeo viewed
those triumphs as the besl in any one day b

Layoff notices were distributed to 35 nonacademic S U N Y A
employees Wednesday
resulting from cuts dictated by Cuomo's 1983
budget, according to Vice President of
University Affairs Lewis Welch.
Of the 35 positions cut throughout the
campus, six Student Health Services positions and 9 bus drivers will be eliminated,
said Welch. The other positions cut have
been scattered throughout the university and
will not effect students, Welch added.
Layoffs in health and bus services will take
effect lifter May commencement, he said,
while the other layoffs become effective as
early as A p r i l 7.
Welch admitted that "there is going to be a
change" in health and bus services, but could
not say whallhosc changes would be.
The specific cuts in positions were recommended by a 20 member budget panel which
includes student representatives, faculty, and
university staff) according lo Dean of Student Affairs Neil Brown,
Student Health Services Director Dr. Janet
Hood explained that two physicians and four
nurses have been cut from her staff. " I don't
know how lo handle I b i s , " she said.
Hood predicted health services will not be
as adequate as this year. She is parllcularly
upset about the elimination o f the in-patient
service. The Health Service, said H o o d , will
no long be able lo serve "acutely ill kids who
arc not sick enough to spend $150 in a
hospital but too sick to go to d i n n e r . "
Efforts are being made by the administration to try lo work out some way to save the
Student Health Service, but it will have to be
funded in a different way than before, Hood
said. She described these past few months as
a "terrible p e r i o d . "
Brown said thai the health service cuts
were originally lo become effective on April
7, bul Ihc university requested and received a
May 22 extension by the Division of Budget.
Brown explained that he has reviewed local
hospital costs which are often $130-$ 175 per
night, and believes the Health Service could
provide ihc same care for 25 percent less than

Ihal. With the current number of health
staff, Brown said the university could run " a
skeletal bin responsible service pretty responsively." Right now, specific plans have nol
been formulated, he said.
Physical Plant Director Dennis Stevens
said he is attempting lo discern how culling
roughly half the number of bus drivers would
effect the students. However, Brown said
Ihal he forsees a bus fee being Instituted.
Brown added thai he is pressing administration hard " f o r some kind o f service

wiili the driver cuts, there would nol be lite

A n attempt lo rcsiore bus and health ser-
vices will be made, said Welch, bul he could
not specify any specific plans. The restoration may be attempted on u fee basis from a
revenue nol as of yel discovered. Also, if the
$12 million deficit causing the layoffs is
grained back by Ihc stale legislature, the
positions may be restored, he said.
According lo Co-Director of the University News Bureau Mary Fiess, when the directions for the cms first came from the governors office, President O'Lcary had hoped lo
postpone considering Ihc number of posilions lo be cut until lite new slate budget was
revealed on April I. In the past, said Fiess,
money has often been restored to the State
University by the legislature after Ihc budget
proposal was made. O'Lcary wished to wait
for the chance of receiving more funds,
which would cause fewer positions lo be lost.
However, said Welch, Cuomo ordered that
SUNY layoff action be taken immediately.
Welch said that the state budget originally
proposed that 3,000 positions across the state
campuses be cut. SUNY-Central trustees
then decided thai $33 million in energy cosls
and deferred maintenance could be saved
throughout the SUNY system, saving 1,247
positions! In addition, said Welch, 428 jobs
would be saved through a $10 million pledge

The NCAA road to Albuquerque gets underway University striving to meet needs of minorities
By Biff Fischer
Tonight al 7:00, two virtually unknown teams, Roberl
Morris and Georgia Southern, will lip off one o f
America's premier sporting events, the N C A A basketball
tournament. As seems the case each season, this year's extravaganza promises to be the most exciting yet. There
really is no standout team which stands above the other
fifty-one, but come A p r i l 4 in Albuquerque, someone
I j
The controversy thai was present last season really
never materialized lllis year. Sure, teams like T C U and
South Carolina had legitimate claims lo N C A A bids, bin
ihey really did nol gel cheated, as Bradley did a year ago.
So, we go into this year's tournament with the highest
quality most evenly matched tournament yet, and picking
winners is none loo easy.
The East region is probably the weakest of the four
even Ihough il is probably strongest during the season,
bin Virginia, Boston College and Villanova are elsewhere.
It seems strange that St. John's, the Big Easl champ, got a
harder draw than Syracuse, the fifth place team in Ihal
league. Both Rutgers and SW Louisiana, one of which
will play St. John's, are probably better than Ohio St., the
team Syracuse will play after they dispose o f mighty
Morehead St. A n d if Syracuse can get by the Buckeyes,
they'll be playing the rest o f the regional in their own Carrier Dome. Quite a reward for being the fifth-best team in
your conference.
Most observers would probably j u m p on N o r l h
Carolina or Si. John's as regional champ, hut I think this
is where an unexpected team can come through and gel a
trip to Albuquerque. The learn? How about the Rutgers
Scarlet Knights, a learn Ihal anonymously grabbed
twenty-two wins. The Knights were in the Final Four in
1976, and their coach, T o m Young, is one of America's
best. I think Rutgers will play in Albuquerque.
The Mideast region is very, very lough. Louisville is the
lop seed, but I think their first game will be the longhesl
of the four seeds; with the Cardinals facing either Marquelle or Tennessee. Indiana has looked awesome al
various limes, but without Ted Kitehcl, I don't Ihink Ihey
can do i l , especially if ihey have lo play 23-ganic winner
Oklahoma in their first game. I look lor the Kentucky
Wildcats lo emerge victorious ill the Mideasl, as Melvin
Turpin has developed Into one of America's finesl big
men; so much so Ihal Sain Bowie lias hardly been missed.
Kentucky will j o i n Rutgers in Albuquerque.
I.ousiville fans were upsel that the Cardinals did nol
play in the Midwest, so that their first iwo games would
be at Freedom Hall. Bui the Cardinals are In Evansvlllc,
leaving the Midwest as the most abstract of regions.
Georgetown is always a threat, but the Hoyas have a
distinct weakness inside as soon as Pat Ewing sits down,
and w i l h big men like Keith Lee, Sieve Slipanovich, John
Plnone and Akeem Olajuwon in the region, Georgetown
seems an unlikely candidate, Houston Is now number one
in America, bill that's a hindcrance in Murch. The
Cougars will run, run, r u n , bill Ihey won't run lo A l b u querque. Neither will Villanova, or inconsistent Alabama,
or overrated Memphis State. That leaves the lowa-
Missouri bracket. I firmly believe that the winner o f this
game, assuming that Iowa beats Utah St., will win the
region, and I'm picking Missouri lo do it. They've been
close for four years, and led by seniors Jon Sundvold and
Slipanovich, I Ihink Missouri will win the Midwest.
Just as the Easl region dipped in talent, the Wesl has
risen, joining the West's three good teams, U C L A ,
U N I . V and Washington State, are Virginia, Illinois,
Boston College, Big 8 champ Oklahoma State and A C C
Champ NC Slate, This is the most Interesting region, with
a tremendous variety o'f philosophies. N C Slate is totally
dependent on the 17 fool 3 pointer, and will lose quickly,
since there is no gimmickry in the N C A A tournament.
Hopefully, U N L V will play U C L A , in whal has turned
out lo be the west's version o f Louisville-Kentucky. That
would be a super ballgame, wilh the winner meeting
Virginia in the regional final. The key here, for me, is Ihal
the regional final is in the high altitude o l ' O g d e n , Utah,
where stamina is a little harder lo come by. So, in the
finals, when all those jnckrabbits are wearing down
physically, Ralph Sampson will still be 7 fool 4, and the
Cavaliers will round out the Final Four in Albuquerque.
Rutgers. Kentucky, Missouri. Virginia. You can come
up wilh logical reasons lo pick almost any combinations
of learns for the Final Four, there are ihal many good
leams, Clubs ihal reach the Final Four are experienced,
poised and smart, You can't gel thai far if you're nol.
The most questionable at-large bid was given lo Utah

third behind U N L V and Cal-Fulcrlon in the F C A A this

Alongside university efforts to increase
minority enrollment, S U N Y A administrators
and student leaders are working to make Ihc
campus more responsive to the needs o f its
minority students,
The university community is sponsoring
workshops, lecture series, inter-group comtnunicntlon and more responsive programming lo counter racist attitudes and promote
sensitivity towards minority concerns.
S U N Y A Director for Affirmative Aciion
Dr. Gloria DeSole said the campus is "still a

middle class, while Institution,"
In ihis kind of atmosphere many minorities
feel thai there isn't sufficient reason for Ihcm
lo feel al home, said DeSole.
F'or Instance, as Admissions Director
Rodney Hart noted, minority students are
often mistakenly assumed to be pari of the
Educational Opportunity Program (FOP), a
program established lo help economically
and educationally deprived students of all
racial backgrounds obtain a college education,
.t lecture series to educate Ihc campus on the
effects of racism, sexism and discrimination
againsl the handicapped.
DeSole and Associate 10 the Dean 'lor Siudent Affairs Carl Martin, who heads lite Office of Minority Student Services, hope lo
develop a workshop on race relations soon.
While workshops ami lectures serve an important purpose, Martin feels the biggest
need and concern of minority students on
campus now is gelling information — on
everything from employment lo academics lo
extra-curricular work opportunities.'
EOP Director Vernon Buck said while 25
percent of (he students enrolled through
i U N Y A ' s FOP are while, in oilier schools
almost everyone in Ihc program is white,
"There's resentnieni by Blacks and Puerto

"They're Immediately tabbed thai w a y . "
DeSole said that there are " a lot of
misunderstandings about distribution of
goods and benefits, There is slill a perception

This comes from a lack of information and a

Martin said minority students are often left

They are not aware of facilities, opportunities and programs ol Iters are aware o f . "
Martin attributes minority students' lack
of awareness to the fact that " n o t many arc
in the Student Association or as RA's In Ihc
dorms. The Albany Student Press is not effective as a source of Information to some
groups. Programming is not gparcd towards
minority needs."
" I i is a lit I Ic harder for minority students
lo gel i n f o r m a t i o n , " said Albany Stale Unviersity Black Alliance (ASUBA) Chair Eddie
Edwards. "People d o n ' l realize black
students may have some apprehensions abuot
joining a club. If Ihey have lo approach someone dial's while they may gel nervous."
Edwards feels the main function of campus cultural groups such as A S U B A , F'uer/a

" f i r s t of all, just gelling students more involved —- period. Students thereby go on lo

UUP says Albany cuts may harm local economy
By Nancy Crowfoot
Proposed SUNYA budget cuts will lead to a $5.4 million
decline in local business volume in the Albany area, according lo a report by Ihc United University Professions.
This projection, estimated for Ihe first full year following
Ihc budget cuts, describes two lypcs of spending effects thai
will hurl local business volume.
Initial effects include reduced spending by faculty, staff,
students and the university Itself.
Generated by these reductions would be what UUP
Albany Chapter President Tim Rcilly refers to as "second
order effects." These include fewer sales by local vendors
supplying goods lo the university, as well as a spending
decline by residents employed outside the university. Both
arc direel results of income reductions caused by lower
university generated spending.
"Making substantial cuts in SUNYA is like closing a major manufacturing plum in Ihe eily of Albany," Rcilly
observed. "The entire community is affected."
UUP estimated that reductions directly attributable lo
retrenchment will exceed $2.7 million. This includes a $1.5
million decrease in spending by faculty and staff laid off as
a result of Cuomo's estimated new budget. Rcilly claimed
ihai ibis is u conservative figure, which assumes thai all
retrenched faculty and staff remain in the Albany area, and
spend approximately $8,000 a year, a figure that roughly
corresponds to Ihc level of unemployment insurance
benefits. There is no guarantee, however, thai those laid off
will continue to reside in ihe Albany area, he said.
"Given ihe current tightness in the local labor market, I
assume that retrenched faculty and staff will find it difficult, if not impossible lo obtain jobs in Ihe Capital
District al their current sulary level," predieled Reilly, adding that this would result in an even further drop in spending in the local economy.
In Ihe report, UUP also estimated a $1,016,000 reduction
in local spending by students resulting from the budget
cuts. This includes an anticipated drop in enrollment by
1000 students next year due to increased tuition, According
lo Reilly, the non-luitivc eosis of unending ihe university
will approach $2,300 per person in the coming year.

figure of approximately $150,000. This would include a
substantial reduction in spending by UAS, as a result of the
cut in student enrollment.
Reilly added that second order effects, which would
.-ituse a $2,642,346 total reduction in indirect local spending, area result of laying off faculty and staff. "If a faculty member, or the member of Ihc staff, or a student spends
less, local residents receive less income, and consequently
spend less," Reilly explained.
There are more lhan local economic benefits provided by
SUNY, Reilly maintained.
"The advantages of SUNY are greal in Ihe New York
Slate economy," he said. "The long term economic advantages of having well educated graduates contributing to the
slate is of greal Importance."
Commenting on Wednesday's proposal by legislative
leaders lo resiore some $304 million to ihc state budget, $20
million of which would go lo the SUNY/CUNY system,
Reilly said that it was an improvement, but that it would
nol be enough. He also said that more money should be requested by SUNY Central. "Wc appreciate the
Chancellor's effortslo save SUNY, but we need more aid,"
explained Reilly.
UUP President Nualla Drescher commented, "The
Chancellor's proposals are like chemotherapy; ihey provide
immediate release lo the patient, hut the side effects can be
UUP is still strongly advocating the implementation of a
uncharge on personal Income lax in the slate as a way of
,neeiing Ihe budget delicti.
"It (the siuehaige) is neat, clean, and would go away in a
few years," said Drescher, "unlike other forms of taxation, which never go away." The surcharge proposal has a
"sunset" stipulation, she explained, which would
limit the duration of lasaiion lo under five years.
UUP is hopeful I lull ihe resolution will receive greater
support as legislators become more conscious of the importance of SUNY. Reilly nulcd that legislative support has
been increasing.
"It's nol a question of whether or not to gel revenues,
hut how lo gel litem," maintained Reilly. "II just doesn't

Jewish groups will protest Arab lecture series
By Ben Gordon
Campus Jewish groups have vowed to protest a scheduled lecture series Saturduy which has been co-sponsored by
ihc Arab Students Association (ASA) and Ihe Capital
District Committee on Palestinian Rights in LCI, according to President of Jewish Student Coalition—-I lillcl,
Melinda Miller.
Revisionist Zionist Alternative (RZA) Vice President
Steve Smith said ihe protest is being coordinated by ihe
Student Coalition Against Terrorism (SCAT). The proiest
is in response to the tentative lecture by Palestinian Liberation Organization representative Dr. Haiem Hussaini,
Deputy Observer lo the PLO Mission lo Ihe United Nations. The ASA has announced Ihai Dr, Mohammed
Hallaj, Director of ihe Institute of Arab Sludics, and Dr.
Carol Berrigan of Syracuse University will also speak.
Miller explained Ihe prolesi is to lake Ihe form of Ihe
group repealing the Mourner's Kaddish, a Jewish prayer of
mourning. Miller said Ihe prayer will be "for all Ihe people
felled by PLO terrorists."
Smith said Hussaini is "trying to lake the tarnish off
Ihc PLO, that they're nol as bad as Ihe press makes them
out to be. He's using his speaking ability lo make the PLO
look better in Ihc public's eves."

This estimated reduction in spending, said Rcilly, may

New confrontation came as a surprise.
"I think that there is
nothing wrong with this. I
don't believe there is any
intimidation. I don't think
the dialogue between our
two groups is to stop these
activities on campus.''
— ASA President
Zaki Saleh
President of ihe ASA Znkl Saleh said "I think. Ihai there
is nothing wrong with this. 1 don'l believe thai iherc is any
Intimidation, I don'l think I hat the dialogue between our
two groups is lo slop these activities on campus." He added
Ihai Ihe speaking engagements were scheduled on March 3,
before Ihe dispute at ihe World Week festival.
The dispute during World Week focused on ihc question
of whether ihe ASA could display material which ihc RZA
found offensive al an event which was intended lo emphasize Ihe positive aspects of various cultures.
This new confrontation between campus Arab and
Jewish groups came as a surprise lo Dr. Frank Pogue, who
jonvened a forum between the groups lasi Friday in order
lo prevent a repeat of similar disputes as ihe recent World
Week Filmic Block Parly. "I know nothing ahoul It,"
Pogue said, and refused lo comment unlit he could learn
more about ihe situation.
Dean of Student Affairs Neal Brown said he met with ihe
presidents of ihe ASA and ihe RZA early Thursday morning in "a very congenial meeting." lie added that both
groups "pledged their cooperation in Idling each others'
evenis occur wilhoul interference." Because of this
meeting, Brown said lie felt "nol al all sure thai ihc actions
of this weekend are related lo the discussions. " I h e university, he added, is letting both events occur bused on Ihc
belief of freedom of speech and the freedom lo assemble.
The campus Jewish groups feel a necessity to respond,
according lo Smith, lo demonstrate lo the community
"that Iherc are Jews on campus who are unhappy with the
PLO." He added thai the RZA intended a peaceful
demons! ration "staling our view while Ihey slate I heir view.
We'll fill ihe vacuum."
Smi|h does not feel that a breakdown in talks will occur
if ASA holds Ihc event, "The talks are siill going through,
no mailer whai happens Saturday. The talks are lo make
lliings more workable."
Saleh pointed out Ihai the speakers are being brought lo
SUNY to educate Ihe public about Ihe Arab position on
Issues concerning the Middle East, The .lews in America, he
said, have long aired their opinions, and Ihe ASA warned to
present Ihc other side of Ihe argnmeni. Saleh maintained
that he would like lo see "Americans and officials from Ihc
university see for themselves what Ihe speakers' opinions
are on: the Jews, Israelis, and on the Middle Fast in
According to Pogue, one possible long term objective of
Ihc talks between lite ASA and Ihe Jewish groups might be
lo "plan fit lure activities, hopefully sponsored jointly."
Saleh explained ihai ii was suggested hy Ihe RZA lo
cosponsor such evenis as, perhaps, an organized debate,
bill said Ihai "Ihc ASA discussed it, and we feci lhal it is
nol appropriate ai this lime, especially al'ler...ihe attack on
our table," referring to the removal of a poster front titer
ASA display by an RZA member, The RZA returned Ihc
posier the next day,
"We don'l feel thai Ihe RZA represents Ihe Israeli polnl
of view or Ihc American Jews' polnl of view cither," Saleh
said, adding "so, whai's the poinl of having an argument
or debate wilh a person who does not represent the other
side of Ihc dispute?"
Smith responded I lull Ihe RZA represents Ihc "SUNYAlbany Jews." I |e claimed lhal any debate would be lo gel
students involved, and lo ail opinions publicly.

A female SUNYA student was accosted Thursday al

Albany police.
The student, whose name has been withheld, was walking along Ihe dark Pine Hills slreel when a man passed her
then attacked her from behind, and began culling her
hair. She screamed and the man ran off, police said.
There was no oilier bodily injuries lo the woman and
no signs lhal litis was an attempted rape, reported ihe
police. Still, no suspects have been arrested and detectives
have been assigned lo ihe case, according lo Lieutenant
Nicholson of the Albany police.
Two similar attacks, that police refer only as "hair culling incidents" have occured over the past two years in the
Pine Hills area, police said. The most recent occured three
months ago and one person has been apprehended in connection with these previous attacks,
The Pine Hills area was plagued by the "Pine Hills

Bernard K. Johnpoll, a former Political Science professor who left S U N Y A in August 1982 after 18 years,
researched and collected rare and unused newsreel footage
over several years to complete his creation, at a cost of
" I ' m an old newspaper man and I noticed that we
weren't making proper use of newsreels" said Johnpoll. T o
collect the films, he explained that he traveled extensively
around the country and acquired films from twenty-four
slates. The project was financed through small grants and
out of Johnpoll's pocket. Most of the film, said Johnpoll,
was found in standard public ai chives. "There are huge archives with unused film. It's priceless footage," he said, adding, " i t ' s just as important 10 give a visual view as well as

i f the anti-nuclear movemenl does not face
up to some hard questions and compromises,
il may revert into something that is merely
" f u n 10 do while the weather is nice," according 10 Moorehead C. Kennedy, Jr.,a former
hostage in Iran, who spoke at l.inlon High
School in Schenectady.
Kennedy, a founder of the Cathedral of
Peace Institute in New York City, addressed
a group of aboul 100 on a " N e w View
of Peacemaking."
Saying thai "slogan has lo be answered
with substance,"Kennedy asserted, " I l (the
nuclear threat) is not so simple 10 resolve.
The peace movemenl has lo confront lite
highly technical nature of civilization. They
could learn a lol from Ihc environmental
movemenl, which has had 10 come 10 terms
with ihc fact that transportation and corporations are necessary. The political process
of dialogue and compromise has to be laken
advantage o f , " he said.
If Ihis question is not faced, Kennedy said,
the leaders of die peace movement may find
iheir constituent elements "answering different questions in different ways." Fracture
within Ihc movemenl will be very hard 10
avoid, he added.
In the spring of 1982 the anti-nuclear protests peaked witli the Central Park rally, Kennedy said. There was a great deal of optimism
about how easily the threat of a nuclear
holocaust could be lifted by a " m u t u a l and
verifiable freeze," he said. This simple for-
inula, according lo Kennedy, "has Ihc meiil
of being Ihc lowest common denominator,"
The rally attracted a wide variety of groups,
including ihc Communist Party, Gay Liberation, may other single issue groups a n d church groups. Hundreds o f thousands of
nonaffiliated citi/eus also attended.
Kennedy staled that one question the peace
movemenl must ask ilself is what is really
meant bv the word "peace."
There Is inner.peace, peace In our hearts,
the peace which'Ihc Bible says 'passcth all
understanding.' If this is to be the goal for
the world, il doesn't mean mere reduction on
conflict) violence and w a r , " he asserted.
Kennedy stressed thai peace is a process,
and thai If the goal is a world where force is
not necessary, negotiations must he backed
lip by force, though force does nol play n
primary role. He cited as an example the incident of the U.S. Marine who challenged an
Israeli lank in Lebanon, saying I lull the incident was a lest of American resolve.
Kennedy stressed, h o w e v e r ,
Americans musi change Iheir "auisl w i n " aililadc. " I n life there are no real v Iclorlcs, Wc
need lo give in order to gel. We have lo
realize lhal we can'i be in Ihc riglil all Ihc
lime. Americans arc bronchi up to be winners; il produces a basis of excellence in our
society, but when the drive to win is applied
to International affairs it can get us into
serious [rouble," he said.
Ihc loose use o f the word " p r e v a i l " is
dangerous, according 10 Kennedy. " I f either
side persists wild the idea thai it can prevail,
il could lead 10 nuclear holocaust."

President Reagan's first scl of budgcl ems hit New York
Stale residents and local governments harder than the slate
ilself, according lo a New York Slate Sludy by Irene l.urie,
a professor al SUNY-Albnny, and Sarah' l.iebsliulz, a
political science professor al SUNY-Broekpon.
The study cites three reasons why ihc cuts hit residents
and local governments hard. First, the largest expenditure
cuts were made in lite programs administered, from the
federal government directly lo Ihc residents and local
governments rather than in programs administered by the
federal government to ihc slate, Second, the state passed
the cuts il did receive on 10 local govcrnmcni and residents.
T h i r d , the Smile Old nol increase its expenditures lo replace
cuts in federal aid.
'I'be report, which was done as purl of a larger national
stiuly, funded by the Ford Foundation, is to lie released in
the future by Richard Nathan o f the Princeton Urban and
Regional Research Center. The study provides 11 detailed
look at the impact of federal budget cuts on NYS govcrn-
menl and the local governments of Ihc City of Rochester
and Ihc Town of Greece,
According 10 the report, cuts in programs in which the
funds are given directly to local government or the individual participants themselves, included a $.109 million
cut for Comprehensive Employment and Training Aci
(CETA) programs (a 59 percent cut), an estimated $195
million cut for Food Slumps (an 18 percent cut), and $84
million lor Trade Adjustment Assistance (an 87 percent
cut). Claims for Trade Adjustment Assistance, which gives
aid to workers who are unemployed due 10 import competition, dropped from 33,000 10 5,000.
Local governments received Iho C E T A fund cuts since
iliey are its prime sponsor. The culs, the study said, resulted
in tile termination of over 60,(XX) program participants.
New, stricter eligibility rules for Food Slumps directly
eliminated 8,(XX) households, and other changes in the
eligibility rules reduced benefits for almost all the remaining 750,000 households receiving the aid, it said.
" T h e unemployed and I lie working poor were most affected by these federal changes," the professors claim in
lite report.
T w o o f the largest cuts - CETA 'find Irade Xdjiisluicn
Assistance — had a quick and direct e f f e c t ' o n the
unemployed. Program changes in Food Stamps and Aid to
Families with Dependent' Children (AFDC) were designed
10 reduce benefits given to families with earnings — the
working pooi. Reduced Availability of daycare, funded
' under the Social Services block gram, also directly affected
Ilie working poor, I hey said.
In general, slate government was less burdened by the
federal culs than were residents of New York and local
governnienis/aulhoriiics, according 10 Luric ana
l.icbschutz. Cuts to ilie Suite itself having the greatesi effect were ihc $59 million cm in federal funds for Title X X
Social Services (a 24 percent cut); cuts totaling approximately $100 million over (he two-year period Federal Fiscal
Year ( F I T ) 1981 and FFY 1982 (a 15 percent cut) to
elementary and secondary education; and $7 million reduction in funds for employment service activities (a 10 percent
cut). Smaller cuts were also made in AFDC, and child

'I think it would be fun to run a newspaper'
felt a cold wetness oozing into my left leg. Reaching
down and touching the wet pant leg, I was relieved to
find a mashed-up lime and some crushed ice in my
left pocket. "Hell ofa lot better that wetting my knickers,"
-1 mumbled, satisfied at finding most of someone's drink In
' my pocket.
Four generations of Albany Student Press editors were at
the crowded Soho parly. Four years of having the same
thoughts and the same headaches. The four of us had at
least one thing in common — like the protaganisl in Citizen
Kane, wc all thought it would be fun to run a newspaper.
Between dancing and drinking I had a chance to talk with
some of the alumni of this student rag. One pulled me over
to the snack table, where it was somewhat quieter. He congratulated me on surviving a year and a couple months as
editor. Between contests to see who could shove the most
pretzels in their mouth without choking, he told me how exciting it was to watch Ihc changes the paper went through in
I lie past year.
It's hard to find someone who appreciates a good
newspaper. I don't mean to whine, but how many people at
this university realize what they've got going here? This
paper is the only one in the Stale University with Ihc guts to
become financially independent, free from the fickle
budgeting of student pols or public relations minded administrators. It's gol balanced, fair reporting, excellent
features, and diversity. It's a greal learning laboratory, and
best or all, ihc ASP answers only to Ihc high ethics of the
people who put it together.
Shit. I-Hopped back up on that high horse wc like to call
Ihc editorial "we". Thai's one of the drawbacks of writing
iwo editorials a week for over a year. Anyway, it was good
lo talk lo someone who appreciated Ihc kind of work people up here do. For Ihc first lime In over year, the typesetting computer is working without a hitch. Even the film
cover door I dropped ray second semester on Ihc paper has
been replaced, after ruining many rolls of expensive
typesetting paper through light leaks. The writing is sharp,
and damn it if the paper doesn't look good.
Back lo the party. I hit Canal with another newspaper
alumnus to find a few coldies because the party ran out of
beer. Wc found a dirly bar resplendent with winos and got
a few bottles. We'd worked side by side a few years ago,
and my imminent deparlurc from Ihe paper meanl Ihc end
of an era for Ihc both of us. Between a sleeping bag man
and the TV set wc tried to figure out a way lo describe my
three year old relationship with a newspaper.

Only time will tell
For the first time in its twcnly-two year existence, OPEC
rolled back the price it charges for crude oil.
With the combination of external competition and an
abated consumer demand, Ihe once potent oil cartel had little choice but to lower Ihe price il charges for crude oil or
race an all-out price war which could have (and still might)
destroy its unity.
Robert Martiniano
After weeks or inftghting, OPEC members simultaneously agreed to lower its price per barrel by five dollars lo
twenty-nine dollars a barrel and lo set OPEC-wide production quotas.
These compromises by no means signal an end of
[roubles ror the beleaguered OPEC. Non-OPEC oil producing nations could still unilaterally lower the prices they
charge for oil, recreating the price war, and conservation
measures could still lower Ihc demand Tor oil products.
Oil conservation may or may not be a major factor in
OPEC's rail ftom omnipotence.
Debate continues within economical circles as to the
relative effectiveness of conservation measures. Economists
believe the world-wide recession has a much nrcalcr influence on the abated demand for oil, rather than sporadic
conservation measures.
Yel, downplaying conservation efforts only diminishes
the collective enbrts Ihe Western world has produced lo
lessen its dependence on OPEC oil.
Detroit is not about to retool to again produce gas guzzling dinosaurs. Our efforts to produce more energy efficient
homes and businesses will not abate even with the decrease
in ftiel costs. These short term conservation initiatives have
long term consequences.
Whether these conservation measures contributed more
to OPEC's situation than did the recession, that is for
historical speculation.
Speculation notwithstanding, Ihc recession also had an
impact on OPEC's oil prices and consumer demand. With
American factories working at sixty percent capacity, the
amount of oil America failed to import is significant. Again
we cannot downplay Ihc significance or Ihc recession in
OPEC's problems. Vet, to note every aspect or the recession and its impact or oil importation would be a bore.
Even with Ihe recession and conservation, OPEC's biggest problem came ftom non-OPEC oil producing nations.
With nations such as Mexico, Norway, and and Great Brilian selling oil just as cheaply with much less aggravation,
oil importing nations are switching trading partners.
Over the last three years, while total consumption
world-wide is down by nine million barrels or oil a day, the
consumption of OPEC oil is down twelve million barrels a
Applying basic math to this economical situation, while
OPEC oil production is down that previously mentioned
twelve million barrels a day, non-OPEC oil producing nations have increased their oil production by three million
barrels a day.
OPEC's lion's share or Ihe oil market no longer exists,
and for so long OPEC had a huge appetite. With the dominant role in oil production, OPEC could dictate its rules to
the rest of the world. That is no longer true.
With the onset of the recession and conservation
measures, and with competition from non-OPEC nations,
oil usage abated. With Ihe need for steady revenues, countries had to decrease prices lo increase sales and hopefully
steady total revenues.
It is this need for price dccrcase(s) which tore OPEC
apart. Iran, in its need lo fund its war with Iraq, needed to
undercul OPEC's official benchmark price of thirty-lour
dollars a barrel lo keep a steady revenue flowing.
For nations such as Nigeria and Venezuela, who arc Indebted to American and European banks, income had lo be
steadied to keep debt service payments up or risk bankruptcy.
For other OPEC nations, Ihe revenue is needed just lo
exist day to day. Within OPEC, Ihere exists a dichotomy
based on riches. Rich Persian Gulf slates and Libya bring in
ninety percent of OPEC's revenues for only three percent
or OPEC's population. The other ten percent of Ihc
revenue supports ninety-seven percent of OPEC's populalion. Obviously these poorer stales have a greater slake in
keeping revenues steady. Any drop in revenues could spell
economical disaster.
Only time will tell whether OPEC can survive Ihe current
world situation wilh respect lo oil consumption.
Yet, OPEC is not the only loser in Ihis game. The Soviet
Union perpetually in need of hard currency and also the
largest oil producer in the world is hurling from iliisptict
Several days before OPEC announced Its price reductions, the Soviet Union announced ii would charge only

Andy Carroll: Pizza, PaoMan & Power Dots
that a good Ms. game combines elements
of both: the ruthless determination of the
ripper and the sublimated aggression of the
waiter. I explain that I'm neither, and not
only do I score poorly at Ms., but I usually
end up ordering another slice at the bar.
John Isn't sure, and tries to convey In
words the technique that has become Instinct after a year of play. "I always wait for
a fruit. You hate to miss a fruit."
John drops Ihe quarters In the machine,
and as he plays admits lhat my analogy has
some strengths. "My brother and I play differently. Andy's Impatient, where I'll wait
and wait until all four ghosts are lined up. I
guess he's more of a ripper than I am, If
that's what you mean."
Ripping into the maze
in search of fruitful results
or a year I lived with a sports buff
who never minded the nickname
we had chosen for him — The
3 Ripper — because he thought he'd been
named after a local sportscaster.'and not,
as was the case, after his eating habits. It
was an understandable misconception,
and one that might never had to have been
cleared up If It weren't for an afternoon I
spent recently at The Fountain restaurant
on New Scotland, where three of us —
me, Mr. Guilt, and The Smoker — had
driven for pizza and Ms. Pac-man. Ignorance may or not be bliss, although I'm
pretty sure The Ripper will be happier with
his nickname If he doesn't read past this
point. For It's here I reveal that "ripping" Is
Ihe act of sharing a pizza and tearing Into its
middle, Gordlan-knot style, to expose the
largest piece.
You're right If you don't consider this the
most serious of transgressions, nor the
rudest. I've seen hcuse-mates lick the remaining Freihofer's to claim them as their
own, (or Instance. But ripping remains unique In the sheer audacity of the act, a
technique of eating pizza which slates, "I've
finished my slice before you, and feel I am
entitled to the largest remaining piece,
even il it means skipping Ihe familiar
courtesy ol leaving the size of the piece up
to fate by going, In order, around Ihe pie."
Even If ripping weren't the most ruthless of'
acts, it would certainly remain one of the
All this came up again (The Ripper having graduated last year) when Mr. Gulll
reached for ihe largest slice on a cheese
and three-quarter onion pie Monday night,
and balked when 1 called him a ripper. He
reminded me that he hadn't torn into the
pizza, but had waited until the largest slice
had been exposed by The Smoker and me.
I didn't see the difference, and said there's
Utile distinction between ripping and
waiting — they both achieve the same end.
although one may be slightly more covert,
and therefore, I argued, almost worse.
Mr. Guilt would have none ol it, and
defended himself (weakly, I (eel) on Ihe
grounds that those who ait and wait do so
at a considerable risk o( having less than
anyone else, being that eight slices do not
go into three people evenly. Indeed, not
only shouldn't we have accused htm of
greediness, we should have applauded his
How this all relates to Ms. Pac-man may
not be apparent, but trust me — we're getting there. It's been a tradition of ours of
late to follow our pizza with a few goes at
the game. In fact, it's become a tradition to
follow anything with a few goes at the
game, although I don't think we've raised It
to the level of obsession that the
newsmagazines keep talking about. Mr
Guilt has his manic phases, and The
Smoker has dumped enough quarters In
the game to score in the 50- to 70 thousand point range, but I think I balance this
with an approach that borders on the
academic. High scores aren't enough for
me, especially as I've yet to achieve one. I
want to understand the game, and confirm
a few theories I've had about the type of
personalities It rewards, and those It
Ms. Pac-man has been called the most
popular video game spin-off In the industry's short history, designed by The
Midway Manufacturing Company to appeal to women arcade players and as a further challenge to those who already
mastered the original Pac-man. The yellow
Pac-man disc has been given a set of
Revlon lips, a pink and blue bow In Its hair,
and, If you look closely, a liny dimple In Its
cheek. Like Pac-man, Ms. Is a maze game,
the object of which Is lo guide your disc
through a series of twists and turns, and
earn points by gobbling "dots," enemies,
and loud, bouncing fruits. In pursuit are
four "ghosts," who can only be eliminated
when Ms. eats a flashing "power dot" and
turns them blue, and even then are resur-
rected from the "monster pen" In the middle o l the board. When Ms. has successfully eluded the ghosts or eaten Ihem Into
submission (earning up lo 1600 points per
power dot for her troubles) and cleared the
maze of all those dots, she Is rewarded with
a new maze, faster ghosts, and a shortened
duration of "munch-time," — Ihe period In
which Ihe ghosts remain edible.
Unlike Pac-man, the four ghosts in Ms.
— Ihe red, Ihe orange, Ihe green, and Ihe
pink — cannot be relied upon to do
anything predictable. Thus memorization
of patterns Is no longer effective, and Ihe
good player must learn Ihe personalities of
each of the ghosts, which are as erratic as
the player's. The orange ghost, for Instance, Is reknowned for his cowardice, but
Is Inspired to attack on occasion.
There Is also a quite literal sense of
drama In Ms. that is missing from Pac-man
"I'm gutsier," says Andy. "1 do the same
amount of boards In a third of Ihe lime It
takes John."
John continues. "You have to know the
ghosts pretty well. The green one Is shy.
but likes to predict what you'll do. The red
Is nicknamed 'Shadow,' and he'll go

The View From The Couch
TV Etiquette: Should Talking Be Tolerated?
he scene: Irving Hall, 2nd Floor
lounge, Freshman year. Young
Albany State students, Jordan,
Alan, Vlnnie, Karen, Sue, Rob, Chris,
Lisa, Elizabeth, John, etc. are gathered
around the lounge television, passing a
pleasant evening of viewing.
In a situation like this, as we're sure
you're well aware, there Is bound to be
some conversation. Here Is where conflicts
arise. Some of the participants are serious
viewers while others are there for the social
aspect. Sooner or later, several of the
social viewers are bound to engage In some
form of light-hearted conversation. As you
cap well imagine, the serious viewer may
take umbrage (to quote our good buddy
Felix) to this uncalled for and amateurish
behavior. At this time one may expect to
hear an emphatic "Shhh, you're destroying
my concentration and ruining the whole effect of the movie" from the Alan Kaplans of
your viewing circle,
Who is right? Are Lisa and Elizabeth free
to discuss their cigarette shortage In the
middle of the bonus round of "Face the
Music" or should there be complete silence
until Ihe next commercial? Even this may
Infuriate the commercial aflclanados In the
audience. There are several schools of
thought. There are the arch-conservatives,

Then there are those who feel talking Is acceptable, Within this group there are two
sub-divisions, those who feel that intelligent, well-placed and illuminating Insights can enhance the viewing experience,
and anarchists whose inane, irrelevant and
ill-conceived comments contribute nothing
but heartache to the viewing public.

Life is love, and It Is greater than you:
you cannot possess it. We can only allow
ourselves to be possessed by it; it cannot be
controlled. The modern ego wants to control everything, and we become scared of
whatsoever we cannot control. We become
afraid; so we close the door. We close that
dimension completely because fear enters.
We will not be in control. Love will not
allow us to control and that flies in the face
of the whole trend which has led to this
century being based on how to control.
We master the things around us - of
course, only those things which are possible to possess, and side by side we also
have been developing an incapacity (or
those things which cannot be possessed.
You can possess money; you cannot
possess love. Because of this we have been
turning everylhing into a thing. We even
attempt to turn people into things because
we can possess things. We can love, but we
cannot be Ihe master; no one is Ihe master
of love.
Possessiveness, ihe attitude to posses,
has killed our capacily lo love. One should
not think In terms of possession. Ralher,
we should think in terms of being possessed. This is what surrender means - being
possessed; for we allow ourselves to be
possessed by something greater than you.
We are not In control. A greater force will
take control. The direction will not be ours.
We cannot choose the goal. The future Is
always unknown. Our minds cannot be

than ourself, we become Insecure, afraid.
If you are afraid and Insecure, it Is better

credit hour requirements, due to the fact
that the goal of most doctoral programs Is
the dissertation. Upon entrance to a doctoral program, the student may be required
to take a preliminary examination prior to
receiving admission candidacy. In addition
to minimum grade point averages and
Gradute Record Examination scores, the
student is usually required to show a
reading knowledge of one, If not two,
foreign languages. The most common
languages are French, German, and Russian, Upon the completion of the doctoral
course work, the student develops a dissertation proposal (usually with assistance
from faculty mentors), The disssertatlon Is
then written and submitted to a faculty
counsel. Following the submission of the
dissertation, the doctoral student usually
takes an oral examination based on the
topic of his or her thesis; hence an oral
defense, .
Both the master's and doctoral degrees
require a large commitment, In addition to,
of course, much determination. Generally,
a master's program can be completed In
two years of full time study, whereas the
doctoral degree can usually be completed
within four or five years.
With a master's degree one can enter the
fields of Industrial psychology, Guidance
and Psychological Services, Community
psychology and School Psychology. Once
an Individual has completed a master's
program he cannot take on the title of
"psychologist", though he or she can call
themselves a "therapist," The title of
psychologist only can come with the
credentials of a doctoral degree,
he Psychology major, according
to Dr. Gordon G. Gallup Ji .
chairman of .the Psychology
Department, contains more undergraduate
majors than any other department In the
university The department In total con
tains approximately 800 majors, which is
roughly two to three-hundred more majors
than the next most popular course of
study I >i Gallup further elaborated on this
fact by stating thai one out of every seven
undergraduates (by the time they hove
reached their junior year,) will declare
themselves a psychology major. Although
few undergraduate majors originally
entered as psychology, many of the people
in the department were pre-medical or prebusiness majors,-
William D. Charmak
With these fairly surprising statistics, one
may ask the reasons surrounding the
department's popularity. Does the department (major) designate a minimal
workload?. Are most of the courses typically easy " A " couses? Are there many opportunities in the job market, when one holds
a bachelor of arts In psychology? The
answer to all of these questions Is no.
Then, why Is this the most popular major In
the university? Dr. Gallup explained that
the psychology major Is simply not the
sterotype of the "easy major" that so many
-.indents have labeled it. He stated that the
program is demanding, and that the
psychology department awards fewer of
the grades " A " and " B " than any other
academic department. Why then do
students choose to declare themselves
psychology majors and not majors of
another academic discipline?
Perhaps, because Its
Psychology as a course of study literally
cuts across every academic subject, giving
the student a well-rounded background.
The university's c o u r s e . listings In
psychology are quite extensive; one can
choose to study the environmental aspects
of behavior and study topics In the
psychology of human sexuality.
Moreover, psychology (more so than
any other course of study), gives one the.
necessary skills and training to understand
the facets of human behavior Hence with
this Invaluable background one may gain a
fiim advantage in the working world,
especially* il that occupation involves some
soil of public relations work. Since a
background in psychology is such a useful
Instrument, many undergraduates use the
psychology majoi as the basis for prcmedlcal or prelaw major. Such students
will declare themselves as psychology majors while simultaneously fulfilling the requirements for medical school or another
professional school, In addition to these
types of majors there are those students
that have declared themselves as double
majors in conjunction with psychology. In
addition to the psychology department's
numerous majors there are also m a n y '
minors within the department; for again,
psychology makes an excellent combination with virtually any major, thereby confirming Its diversification and relative flexibility.
psychology, according to Dr. Gallup, Is
limited In terms of pursuing employment In
an occupation that Involves psychological
service, It Is just about Impossible to gain
some sort of employment that entails
psychological duties with the bachelor of
arts degree. If one chooses to pursue a
career in some aspect of psychology,
graduate training Is absolutely Imperative.
Minimally, a masters degree Is needed.
The majority of master's programs, in
psychology require the completion of thirty
credits for'a semester calendar and fourtyfive for a quarter calendar. Part of this total
usually must be spent at the institution
granting the master's degree. Most students
complete these requirements through
course work and a thesis and extensive
research project. Admission to a master's
program varies with each institution. Most
of the schools require results from the
Gradute Record Examination, extensive
recommendations, a minimum grade point
average and sometimes the knowledge of a
foreign language.
Ideally, a doctoral degree (PhD or PsyD)
is needed. Doctoral programs vary fromprogram to program in the number of
According to Dr. Gallup the most
popular doctoral program Is In clinical
psychology. Presently, clinical psychology
Is one of the most difficult graduate programs to gain entrance to. Dr. Gallup
stated that the university's clinical doctoral

the American Psychological Association).

One can easily see that to eutei a pro
gram in clinical psychology is just about as
difficult (If not inure difficult) than medical

the fact that the employment outlook for
clinical psychologists (with the doctoral
degree) Is quite good; it is less favorable for
those who only hold the master's degree
There is a strong demand for qualified individuals in psychiatric hospitals, correctional institutions, mental hygiene clinics,
V.A. hospitals, and cummunlty health
centers. Practicing psychologists can expect to earn within the range of $100,000
In addition to the program in clinical
psychology, there is an Increasing
popularity In Industrial and Organteatlonal
psychology. At the present time there Is an
increasing market for qualified professionals-to utilize their psychological skills in

the average range from approximatly
$30-35,000 annually. In addition to the
demand for such qualified individuals,
there is also a rapidly Increasing need (or
Individuals to devote their services in labot
and Industrial relations.
Besides the clinical and industrial
psychology programs, other somewhat less
popular programs are In educational
psychology, community psychology, and
counseling psychology; but these proyiams
as well are gaining their own popularity
with considerable speed.
The university psychology department
contains thirty-two full time faculty
members. According to Dr. Gallup the
department Is research oriented, receiving
In the range of a half million dollars annually In federal grants, from which the department produces approximatly one-hundred
and twenty scholarly publications a year. A
.large percentage of the faculty Is affiliated
with nationally reknowned organizations
and psychological committees, On the
whole the department boasts a prominant,
internationally reknowned faculty; one
which Dr. Gallup confidently called the
best psychology department within the
SUNY system, The department can be
sub-dlvlded Into four clusters: a clinical

he news Is filled with the wonders
of modem technology, leading
many people lo believe the best
potential for their future Is In the sciences.
Aspects went to Dr. Shelton Bank, professor of Chemistry and Dr. Richard Kelly,
professor and undergraduate advisor In
Biology for their impressions of the future
of science education and the )ob market.
Megan Gray Taylor
Science has a reputation for "weeding
out" undergraduates. Both Bank and Kelly
deny this. Batik pointed out that "nationally about 33 percent of all Incoming
freshman declare science majors, yet 11
percent actually graduate as such.
SUNYA's statistics are comparable". Bank
postulates several reasons for the attrition.
"Science Is a very Inner-directed major,
You can't bull-shlt about a chem lab over a
cup of coffee." People come to realize the
genuine difficulty of science requirements
and also may have the opportunity to take
courses they were never exposed to
And what about graduate study? Here
the two divide on necessity, but not on advice. Kelly believes there is a market for the
B.S. In Biology If you have a teaching certificate, otherwise the prospects are bleak.
Molecular biology Is clearly the strongest
field, but the state health labs and others
are laying off people and in general jobs are
hard to find. Industry Is snapping up the
molecular graduate degrees. Salaries In Industry .ire two limes that of academla, but
graduate study Is essential. (This also accounts for good university faculty leaving
teaching for Industry).
The picture in Chemistry is more positive
lor the four year degree holder, hut Bank,
too, advises graduate study. "The decision
level, that of design and analysis, is only at
the PhD level." Bank was quick to add,
though, that graduate study In Chemistry

good bases for this kind of work. Of
SUNYA's Chemistry majors about half go
to graduate school (with acceptance In to
some of the best schools In Ihe country Including Harvard and Stanford), a quarter
go to medical school and the rest go directly to Industry.
Kelly made the point thai there Is no
such thing as a pre-med major at SUNYA.
The excessive number of
undergraduates Is often the result of this
misnomer. Although SUNYA has good
placement records In medical schools, the
major really doesn't matter, "as long as you
take the basic required courses you can
major In anything". SUNYA offers a 5 year
B . S / M . S , degree program In which
research for the master's is started during
the senior year, with awarding of the
degree at the end of Ihe 5th year. Although
there is only one student currently pursuing
this course (II was just Instituted last year),
there Is hope that more serious biology
students will choose this degree program.
The Importance of undergraduate
research Is obvious given Ihe competitive
job market. In Chemistry there are 110
declared majors of which 27 are doing
research. Bank (eels that this research is a
lough experience, "There's not that much
direction, they have to rely on themselves
and some aren't comfortable with this,"
The opportunity, however, is there and the
statistics on student publications from these

Like many scjiools. SUNYA is In a position
where If a professor leaves, he or she cannot be replaced. Budget cuts and the
general state of the economy only add to
the competitiveness of these jobs.
Aspects asked about SUNYA's graduate
programs and got mixed responses. Bank
feels our department stands strong among
the competition, There are stipends (approx. $6,200) available (chem labs have to
be taught), and we have a really strong
placement record. He stresses, however,
his belief that those who have done their
undergraduate work here should go
elsewhere for their advanced degrees, "if
not for Ihe masters, definitely for Ihe P h D . "
Admissions are competitive and the standards are high.
The picture In Biology Is somewhat different. Although there has been an overall

Kelly feels strongly thai the Biology department has succeeded to a large extent in this

also have Nutrition. Oceans, and next year

In contrast. Chemistry has not. so far,
succeeded in overcoming non-science malor Intimidation of the subject. To try and
deal with this problem, Bank and others
are designing a course for non-majors
(hopefully for next year), that will tackle
those areas that tend to scare off nonmajors such as 3-d chemistry and talk
about the chemistry of everyday life like
cleaning agents, and Ihe chemistry of cooking ("any feedback would be helpful").
Like Kelly, Bank believes "we do well by
our kids. They're super and they know It."
There is no hesitation about the absolute
lop quality education for majors.
Obviously, Chemistry and Biology are
not the only frontiers of new technology.
Computer Science, an essential tool
language for the other sciences, has come
Into Its own with graduate applications far
exceeding any other science department.

Physics and Earth Science (geology, atmospheric science, etc) and Mathematics
are also promising fields. Physics, allhough
one of the most obscure fields in terms of
number of majors, has tremendous
marketability and an ever increasing
number of graduate applicants. SUNYA's

One major reason students have pursued the sciences with such a vengenance
is that promise of a marketable degree. We
have seen from these comments that that Is
not always the case. CSI, Biology and
Chemistry majors all seek lhat practical experience thai looks good on a resume.
Aspects asked if education in the future
might alter Its approach to accomodate

overwhelming response was no. Theory is

no evidence that that approach will

al all, Music For the Hard of Thinking will
aid the group in its search for popularity In
the Lower 18.
It Is difficult, if not impossible, to describe
exactly what Doug and the Slugs sound
like. Doug himself has described It as
"...your basic rock and roll but with a certain kafkaesque, grass roots Pavlovian existential. New York liberal Jewish Intellectual kind of slant to It..." What the hell does
thai mean. Doun? Ariuallv.,Dnuu is a funny sort of fellow, one who says his greatest
musical influence Is... Walter Malhau?!
What else can I say?
Music for the Hard of Thinking Is a happy, upbeat album that never (alls to elicit a

last one, Wrap It! we find the same novelty
tunes, but now there Is a much belter sense
of musical arrangement. For example,
"Operator," has the standard cutesy lyrics,
but also features a smooth keyboard,
beautibrllu nlaved bv Simon Kendal. Interacting with resonant drums and bass. It
all adds up to a great song. As siaioj
before, Doug and the Slugs are reputed to
be a great live band. We get a sense of this
on "Nobody But Me", an old Isley ditty
most recently by
George Thorogood. Doug and the Slugs
do a much better job. It was recorded In
front of a live audience, and from the
sound of II, they loved It. Lead guitarists
Richard Baker and John Burton provide
smoky leads for Bennett to play with.
Again, we can't seem lo find any lyrics, but
we now find "get a case of beer and 27
friends and sing no no no til you're so
drunk that everyone thinks they're singing
In tune".
It's definitely not hard to find bouncy,
happy songs on this record. One of Ihe
funnier tunes Is, "She's Looking At Me."
The setting of this song is a sleazy singles
bar, where Doug and keyboardist Simon
Kendal argue over which one Is being eyed
by a beautiful woman. To top it off. Rennett Is squat and stocky, while Kendal Is as

(leepness of Kendal's voice. With a little Im-
agination, It almost sounds like an argument between Popeye and Blulo. .
It's a shame that the weakest song on the
record should be a slow love song. "St.
Laurent Summer" )usl doesn't manage lo
match the quality of all the other songs.
Lyrically the song is pretty, and musically
it's almost haunting. Despite this, we can't
take Doug Bennett seriously when he sings
It, It may be that Bennett Is doomed to
croon happy songs.
Last year, when Doug and the Slugs
played the now-charred J.B. Scotls, over.

While many are probably hearing about
the Members for the first time. Ihe band has
been around for five years. Alter playing
Ihe London club circuit for a while, they cut
their firsl album, Chelsea Nightclub, which
was released in the U.S. as an import. This
was followed up by a world tour and a second album. The Choice is Yours. Bassist
Chris Payne said last week's appearence at
the Chateau was part of a seven week torn
of the U.S. which began In Clnncinall.
When they took the stage I found a
larger band than I expected
guitars, bass, drums, two horn players and
a lead vocalist. Besides sheer number, the
band's attire was a bit unconventional.
This created a commanding stage presence
Nick Tesco and Nigel Bennett of The Members
at the outset.
They wasted no lime tearing Into some
heavy, driving tunes. The rhythm section
provided a strung lower end which alternated between a rock and reggae while the
horns added funk. The outcome was unique, danceable and energetic. Guitarist
Nigel Bennelt threw in some fast licks but
never really had a chance lo take off.
The musicians say the Members have no
one leader but they do have a front
person — vocalist Nick Tesco. Nick doesn't
appear to have a great voice but what he
lacks there, he makes up for In sheer
energy. He sweats, dances and generally
absorbs himself In the music. His only
drawback Is that during a couple of the
photographs by Leslie FrnlWn

Image per se, it just doesn't work for him or
the band. Anyway, that only lasted for a
couple of songs. The rest was full tilt
The full house got their money's worth
as the band played for an hour and a half
with two encores. Some of those who
didn't try to make their way up front contented themselves sitting on the edge of the
long bar.
To the band's credit Is the fact that they
played "Working Girl" early In Ihe set. It
showed they didn't feel they had to hold off
on the song in order to keep the audience's
attention. When they did perform the
song, there were obvious differences from
the album version. It became apparent that
the background vocals had been heavily
doctored In the studio. There was also
other sloppiness that had probably been
eliminated in the studio.
However, this was probably the only
case where the album version was superior
to the live. Not unlike many newer bands,
the Members have not been able to capture
their excitement on vinyl. Payne himself
admitted, "our forte has been the live gig."
It seems that It may be more time and
money in the studio to turn out the raw live
sound than it Is to put out a polished
While they wait for an album that can do
Justice to their reggae funk-rock sound, it
seems the Members may have lo rely on
Working Girl to sell albums and more Importantly, bring people to their live shows.
However, there Is hope — Payne said the
band hopes to put out another album by
the fall.

often-repeated "What then must we do?"

human dignity, deserve a better vehicle
than A Year of Lining Dangerously. At

the potentially fascinating career of Linda
Hunt, If Ihe movie-going audience will appreciate her as an actress and not a freak
character. Special applause to Alison Barret, the film's casting director, for finding a
gem-like Hunt. But otherwise, all I can say
Is that A Year of Living Dangerously, like

In the country.
This year's Jerry Lewis equivalents are
Co-chairs Eileen Kozln a n d Betsy
Kwasman. Kozln, a worker and planner,
compliments her spontaneous counter
part. They are quite a pair; both admitting
they would be nowhere without the other.
Along with a staff of 45, the chairs selected
three area organizations to be the
beneficiaries of their efforts. The decision
was difficult, one which entailed soliciting
organizations, and conducting a lengthy
selection process with the entire staff.
In past years, the orgalnzatlons chosen
needed Telethon's money to survive. This
year, however,.the staff did not find any
group In that position. The funds of the
event will be used for "special programs."
They will provide the children with other
facets besides studying: "some fun stuff,"
explained Kozln
Upon first glance they appear to be like
any other kids, but these are "special
children with special dreams." Perhaps the
biggest problems for most of us are
midterms, a date for Friday night, or a
hangover Sunday morning; (or these kids,
some of the tasks we find commonplace
can prove almost Impossible. Actions and
experiences we may lake for granted are
non-exlstant for many of these kids,
This year's recipients are the Wlldwood
School, the Neurofibromatosis Foundation, and Camp Opportunities, Inc. The
money will be divided among the groups
60-20-20 percent respectively
Wlldwood, located In Schenectady, is a
school that serves children, 3-21 years old,
with combinations of handicapped conditions: neurological disorders, emotional
disturbances, learning disabilities, speech
and language problems, autism, and
seizure disorders.
The funds Wlldwood receives will be used to develop an after-school recreation
program. In an attempt to bring the kids Into the mainstream. II will provide these
children with alternatives to occupy thelt
leisure time.
Kozln explained that Wlldwood was a
"sentimental favorite" with the staff this
year, as the money has been given to the
school on various occasions in the past.
She added that the New York Northeastern Chapter of Neurofibromatosis
Foundation (Von Rickllnghausen's
Disease), was chosen because it "touched
us." This organization had a valid need for
the money; to put together pamphlets for
parents and kids explaining the disease and
Its affects.
Neurofibromatosis Is a disorder of the
nervous system by which tumors can form
on the nerves anywhere In the body at any
time throughout the Individual's life span. It
Is a progressive, complex disorder which Is
gentle, affecting all body systems. Furthermore, It Is linked to learning disabilities,
epilepsy, mental retardation, cancer and It
can cause disfigurement. It has no known
cure or effective treatment other than
surgery on the tumors (which may grow
back and can cause early death, as was the
case of Joseph Merrick, In the movie "The
Elephant Man'
The third recipient Is Camp Opportunities, Inc., of Albany. It attempts to
assist with the problems of Juvenile delinquency, prevention and rehabilitation,
while upgrading Ihe quality of family living
and Improving Ihe youth's general
character. The organization provides day
camp activities in addition to a year-round
operation serving not ony Inner-clly
youths, but also children from the country,
senior citizens and the handicapped. The
camp facilities are used year round for outdoor education, recreation, and conferences conducted by various groups In
Ihe community.
C np Opportunities will utilize their
funds to Include more kids In their program, purchase additional buses, and
bolster existing programs. The chairs explained that this organization was chosen to
provide underprlvlledged kids with the
camp experience that many of us were fortunate enough to have.
Telethon, is trying to help people outside
the university who are less fortunate than
us. To do this, the group has been active all
year In fundraislng, and working with the
children of the selected organizations. The
various fundraislng functions Included:
Run for the Gold, Dance Marathon, Le Fat
Cat Night, Afternoon at the Bars, T-Shlrt
and hat sales, along with numerous other
Last year's Telethon grossed over
$46,000. Both co-chalrs would like to surpass that sum, as Is traditional. However,
Kozln explained that any money raised
tonight will be helpful to the organizations,
but feared that the currently weak
economy may stll! take Its toll. Helping
others and the smiles on the kids' faces will
be the biggest payoff, admitted Kwasman.
In a few hours, the year-long efforts,
planning and organization for tonight will
culminate In a 24-hour Telethon. It will
open with the gleaming smiles of two starstruck women, Eileen and Betsy, as their
faces flash across the screen for " T . V .
hour." We will see our friends and
classmates entertain us with talents we
never knew they possessed. The beer will
be flowing and food distributed as every
"Twiggy" feasts on a Chlpwlch. (Before last
year's Telethon, I never even knew what a
Chlpwlch uias). Collection buckets will be
passed around as all present leel a "special
something" this night.
For a few hours, maybe more, students
will forsake whatever they had planned,
turning out en masse to pack the Campus
Center Ballroom. Some will be present to
see just what all the "hype" has been about
• why all those videos have been playing In
the C.C. lobby, and why all those people
have been trying to get us to buy
something. Others know; they arc there
every year.
This Is a university event, one which
everyone can appreciate. And every year
we are packed In Ihe ballroom to
demonstrate. This Is one activity where the
students, for one weekend, truly come
together, which helps the university
become accepted and appreciated within
the community. It cannot be done without
everyone's help. Telethon Is what It Is
because of a staff of 47, Advisor Scott
Blrge, ECC members, local businesses, the
student body, and numerous others.
Eileen expressed it best, "I think Telethon
24 hours a day."
All week, the staff ran around like
chickens without heads. If they thought
they could make money on something, It
was sold. It Is hard to believe this Is
Telethon weekend already.
Regardless of whether or not last years
total Is broken, Telethon '83 will be a success. The money raised will be contributed
to make the lives of some children belter.
W h e n making plans for tonight,
remember h'ow special this night Is, and
that It Is an annual event. Before heading
d o w n t o w n , stop In for a while, bid during
the auction, grab a bite to eat, be entertained, and have a good time. Hey, while you
are there, think of the kids, dig deep down
Into your pockets and put some money in
the buckets. A n d give, give 'til It hurts.

To the Editor:
Student Associations are very powerful organizations
empowered to collect lees and appropriate themforthe
"good o f the w h o l e " . This revenue is in the hands of an
elected student body and is budgetedforstudent functions,
clubs, and organizations. This money rarely leaves the campus it is collected on.
One exception to that has been SASU. SASU is a collection o f student associations. Each association is allowed
delegates, voting power, and can run for ofrices within
SASU. SASU deals purely with student Issues. It is an
educational and lobbying organizationforstudents.
N Y P I R O however, is not run by students. Students do
not have the same rights or control over the issues that they
do with SASU. The issues N Y P I R G deals with arc not
primarily student issues, and are often highly controversial.
Further, N Y P I R G docs not produce direct benefits to our
students, Therefore, in principle and practice NYPIRG
should not be funded by (he student association.
Due to Ihc negative reaction by this paper and many involved with the suit I feel it necessary to slate the following.
I am a firm believer in N Y P I R G and many or its functions, I have supported N Y P I R G In many ways. But as on
undergraduate I lobbied hard to keep NYPIRG off campus
for the reasons slated above. I would do Ihc same today. I
have no corporate lies, just strong idealsforo consistent,
highly principled, well-run student association.
—Sandy Starke
A real alternative
To lite Editor:
Thanks to Ron Bauer in his letter in Tuesday's ASP we
finally have the record straight about Students lor Israel
(SFI) and the Revisionist Zionist Alternative ( R Z A ) . We
would like lo suggest a real alternative; American Jewish
and Proud ( A J A P ) . Our alternative differs from the others
in that we don't suggest that to be a Jew one has to be a
As Americans we recognize and appreciate the opportunities and the freedom available to us in this country. As
Jews we feel strongly towards the survival of the stale of
Israel as a homeland. But, most importantly, we realize
that as American Jews we have the strength and power lo
help Israel; which should be encouraged and not denounced by Zionist groups and the like who do not appreciate the
potential of this force.
We have the might, don't suppress it. Become A J A P ; be
American Jewish and Proud. We are.

Calling names
To the Editor:
Maria, Maria, Maria (Muscarclla)! I just could not sit
still and let your letter to the ASP go unanswered. I find il
vcr> interesting that a woman of Italian descent (something
only a racist would notice—oops just kiddingl) has decided
to become such a staunch defender of Arab students and
culture (we'll forgive you for conveniently slipping Deir
Yasin into your letter, a favorite to tell at Arab propaganda
conventions) when not one Arab student on campus was
disturbed or motivated enough to write a letter to the ASP.
Maria, I am not denying that Israel is indirectly responsible for the "terrible tragedy" which the Arab students on
campus and propaganda network feels compelled to constantly remind us of—as " i f the (killing of Palestinians) is a
part of the morning ritual of every (Israeli's) l i f e " (the
words in quotes are yours, the woros in parentheses arc
mine). This was the findings of the Israeli Commission of
Top Twenty
LOST: 3/9 on SUNYA bus- a
Pittsburgh Pirate Baseball Hat
with Stargell Stars. Insurmountable Sentimental Value,
Reward. Call Debbie M. at
Inquiry. For a more complete picture of the incident, why
not Include Saad Hadaad's, (leader o f Christian
Phulangists, who arc directly responsible for the incident)
face and a cross dripping blood on the poster? That would
probably not go over too well in a country whose population is predominately Christian, and whom the Arab propaganda machine is trying to manipulate.
The real reason I wrote back to you via the ASP is not lo
stir up hostilities between us or others on this campus. In
your letter, you accused me o f being a racist, sarcastic,
hypocritical, and anti-Arab. This slander will not help you
win friends and influence people, Maria. Instead of calling
me all these names, call me on the phone and let's talk
about things over coffee. It's my treat. M y number is in the
phone book. Bring along any friends you have who are
seriously interested in these problems.
This one meeting might be more productive than one
hundred unproductive letters to the ASP,
—Mark Wriniraiin
Peaceful protest
To the Editor:
In 1943, a "religious" leader by the name of Haf A m l n c l
Hussclni was a guest o f A d o l f Hitler at a Nazi rally In
Berlin. "The Germans," Hussclni said admiringly, " k n o w
how to gel rid of Ihc Jews."
In 1983, a representative of Ihc terrorist group that culls
itself ihc "Palestinian Liberation" Organization, by Ihc
name If llulem Hussaini, carries on his infamous relative's
work. This Saturday, March 19lh, Hussaini will bring his
campaign of hate to this campus when he speaks ai an event
sponsored by the Arab Students Association.
We as concerned students o f various political and
religious beliefs, have united together to protest peacefully
this outrageous individual and Ihc organization he
represents. We Invite Jews, Christians, Moslems and all
students who share our indignation to j o i n us, the Student
Coalition Against Terrorism (SCAT), when we prolesl und
make our voices heard on Saturday at 2; 15p.m. in front of
lecture Center I.

Nestle clarifies
I <i the Keillor:
Because of student interest on SUN Y Albany's campus, I
would like the opporiuniiy to clarify the policies and practices of Nestle with regard lo the sale of infant formula in
developing countries.
As you may well know, the World Health Organization
adopted a Code of Marketingforllieusnnilk Substitutes in
May, 1981. Nestle has a strong record o f progress and support In Implementing Ihc W H O Code, including Immediate
endorsement of Its aim and principles. The company
testified ils supportforIhc Code before the U.S. Congress
in June, 1981.
After considerable investigation Ihc company determined
that few developing countries were instituting a national
code as recommended by the W H O . Consequently, Nestle
issued Instructions to all ils employees, agents, and
llslribulors in every developing country where Nestle
markets infant formula, detailing exactly how Nestle would
unilaterally implement the W H O Code. In addiiion, pursuant to article 11,3 of the Code, the Nestle Infant Formula
Audit Commission, chaired by former Secretary of Slate
and Senator Edmund S. Muskie, was established to oversee
Ncstle's compliance with these Instructions and to investigate reported violations o f Ihc W H O Code.
The Commission is a fully independent body composed

o f eminent scientists, academicians, and clergy. During the
Commission's formation in May, 1982 Senator Muskie
staled in a U P I wire services report that " ( I ) f it appears the
company is attempting a cover-up we'll report i t . "
On October 14, 1982 N I F A C presented its First Quarterly Report announcing Ncstle's agreement to comply with
Ihe Commission's recommendations to improve the Instructions. As a result of the Commission's suggestions,
Nestle issues revised Instructions to its personnel in
developing countries. Muskie said In this report that Nestle
has "demonstrated a willingness t o respond positively to
the imperative of change in its marketing policies. In doing
so, it has responded positively to Ihc public interest as
staled i n Ihc W H O C o d e . "
In November, 1982 the General Council o f Ministries of
the United Methodist Church, which examined the issue for
two years, voted by a two-lo-onc margin not to boycott.
This church—the second largest Protestant denomination
in the U.S.—voted lo discourage other oganizallons from
boycotting. Furthermore, on January 27, 1983 the
American Federation of Teachers and Ihc Federation of
Nurses and Health Professionals with a membership over a
half a million withdrew their support of the boycott.
The Commission will continue its strict audit uf Ncstle's
compliance with the Revised Instructions and Ihc W H O
Code. N I F A C members arc undertaking thorough investigations of Ncstle's performance in the field through on
site visits in developing nations. Il is important for
members of the concerned public lo contact the Commission if they have any concerns regarding Ncstle's policies in
ihc Third W o r l d . The address Is: N I F A C , 1101 Vermont
Avenue N W , Suite 900, Washington, DC 20005. And ir
there is any further information I can provide please contact me.

Lo and behold
To Ihe Editor:
During Ihe week o f March 14 to March 17 (Monday to
Thursday), I noticed In most of Ihc classrooms and lecture
centers that I have been in advertisements for "Where does
your ladder of success lead t o ? " and " H o w do you spell
'Success'?" written on Ihe blackboards sponsored, seemingly, by something called College Life which meets on
Thursday at 9:00 pm in CC 375. As I have never heard of
College Life, I have done some research unci, lo und
behold, this is really being sponsored by the Campus
Crusade for Christ,
I have one simple questionforlite leaders and members
o f lite " C r u s a d e " ; What are you afraid of? I f you sponsor
an cvcul, why don't you say so instead o f hiding behind a
pseudonym or by making no reference to sponsorship
whatsoever? I don't object to having ihe "Crusade" sponsoring anything, that would be wrong of me, however I do
have an objection lo hiding the facl that they are sponsoring something.
There should be a policy about this. Each and every SA
funded or recognized organization should take any credit
and full responsibility for everything they sponsor. We
have lo protect everyone's freedom of speech but [here is,
oi should be, a light lo a freedom from being mislead. I
don't know about anyone else but I thought thai this was
being sponsored by Career Planning and Placement
originally, und what CPP would say lo me is far different
from what the "Crusade" would say lo me.

Don't hold your breath
lit the Editor:
I for one am sick and tired of picking up a copy of the
ASP and being plagued with endless articles that tend to
center entirely around one member of the executive
brunch's insipid attack on Central Council and in m m
council's so very predictable rebuttal.
The Student Association is not meant to be a forum for
petty politics or a playground that revolves around a group
of bloated egos, overwhelmed with self importance.
Whether or not this is how it really is, is not in question.
The /ISP's coverage of the organization Is.
The Student body's view of SA is based on the unending
coverage of trite arguments between various members of
the organization and the sensationolistic coverage o f Mike
Corso's political activism. I have walked into the Student
Association's office intimeruble limes, merely as a member
o f Ihe student body, wishing to discuss my ideas with one of
the officials I helped to elect. The majority of them were
out playing the role of activist superhero but the one person
the ASP seems to have overlooked in their coverage was silting in her office speaking to one of her (yes believe it or not
someone in that office pays attention to his/her) constituents. In my opinion the office of the Vice President is
open to any student wishing to make a suggestion or just
chat ubout SA and how It works. But if you arc wailing to
get into any of the other offices—don't hold your breath.
Although many of the things that Anne Marie La Porta has
accomplished during her term have been perhaps less tangible than those that Mike Corso has completed, they are
nonetheless well deserving o f commendation from both the
ASP, and the student body. I f she is to be commended for
nothing else she should at least be credited with following
through on President Corso's campaign platform—communication.

Public access T V can function as a community's
"old town eryer," concentrating on local issues, but it
faces difl'icullies, according lo a New York Universily
professor. Albany cable subscribers, however, can
look I'orward lo an expanded public access syslcm
beginning sometime this summer.
George Sloncy, a professor at NYU's Alternate
Media Center spoke in the Capitol Building Tuesday
morning during a briefing sponsored by the Slate
legislative Commission on Science and Technology.
Known as "the Godfather of public access," Sloncy
explained public access can provide "ordinary people a
chance lo speak for themselves." He continually drew
Ihe distinction between litis and commercial TV's community coverage, which he said only focuses on Ihe
dramatic and sensational.
Sloncy provided examples of public access programming including a program made in Albany called
"Assembly Calendar," Featuring an Interview with
Latham Assemblyman Michael lloblock. Sloncy said
public access is an especially valuable resource for
enriching local politics, " I ' m constantly amazed as I
go around Ihe country lo sec whal affect cable has on
tiuiuiciplc politics," he commented, "Isn't it a relief lo
sec someone not put on the hot seal by a young Journalist?'' said Stoney, referring lo Ihe "Assembly
-\ "\
With commercial T V , explained Stoney, the
coverage of politicians and news must make its way
past "gatekeepers"—people who control what information reaches Ihe masses and what docs not. Public
access, he said, enables lesser known candidates lo gel
their views across. " I think that with judicious use of
this," said Stoney, "It will make public office more

Sloncy slipped another lape into his VCR. The tape,
made by former slcelworkers, shows how the closing
of Bethlehem Steel shattered their community. Commercial T V , he contended, cannot examine an issue in
Ihe manner of the particular people affected. He said
Ihe program shows "wlial happens after the networks
go home." And cable companies, Stoney said, are less
than enthusiastic,
Capilol Cablcvision Program Manager Tim ThornIon acknowledged that in the past, cable companies
have "left public access lo fend for Itself." One reason
for litis, Thornton contended, was thai although
public access was met with great cxciicmcnt when cable
was first Introduced the novelty gradually wore off in
lite community.
As ii is, cable companies have their franchise
agreements reviewed every five years or so, Thornton
explained. This motivates cable companies lo make a
"sincere effort" in public service. And Capilol
Cablcvision, he said, is "going from t) to 10" Willi such
an effort.
Public access channels, Stoney explained, lake up
channels that can be more lucratively employed by the
cable companies for uses such as advertising and leasing for private interests. Additionally, he said, cable
companies must Often provide expensive studio lime
and equipment,
As ii result, there.has been a bill proposed in tile
Senate and backed by the National Cable Association,
which would place primary jurisdiction over cable in
the hands of the Federal Communications Bureau.
This would pre-empt localities from regulating the
franchises thai serve them, and could permit cable
companies to charge extra lor public access or even
eliminate it.
In Albany, Ihe public library provides funding and
facilitation for the public access channel—Channel
2—furnished by Capilol Cablcvision. The library's
Media Director Hob Katz said Stoney's presentation
was applicable to the public access here. He said community groups use Ihe channel lo their advantage, with
Ihe library providing training and studio limetlo Interested groups. But Capilol Cablcvision, Katz contended, "really hasn't been overly enthusiastic or supportive."

Constitution question confuses Junior Council
By Heidi Gralla
Controversy surrounding a missing constitution and
election procedures has stirred confusion and frustration
within the Class of 1984 Council.
The confusion is aggravated by unverifiablc amendments and the constant change of voting status among
members of ihc Council.
The inaccessibility of the constitution recently became a
healed issue within council when several members requested a copy in order lo propose an amendment, according lo class council member Dan Robb. The amendment, Robb explained, would allow for all Class of '84
members to elect officers. Currently, the entire class elects
a council, and Ihc council, in turn, voles on officers.
According to former class president Tom Phillips, at
the beginning of the freshman year election for class
council members and officers were open to all class
members. After a "very poor turnout," the conslitulion
was amended lo conduct class council elections univcrsitywlde, bill hold elections for officers within the class council. Phillips explained that his was done to prevent people
from running for offices for "selfish" reasons such as
wanting a title, and lo prevent elections from becoming
"a popularity contest."
Class council member Johunna Sarrocco said she would
like to sec Ihc constitution amended because "an Internal
election is more of a popularity contest titan a university*
wide election."
Regarding the issue of Ihc availability of Ihc coin Million, Class President Chip Fody explained that he was
never given a copy from previous officers, and added Ihal
he never asked for one. "I knew what was in the constitution," he said, "and anything I didn't know I just asked
Tom (Phillips). He's as good a resource as having one
(constitution)." However, Fody added Ihal Phillips had
ler.l him a copy of the conslitulion lasi year, but lie had
relumed II after reading il.
Phillips, who was studying in Denmark lasi semester,
apparently has the only copy of the constitution at his
house on Long Island. Phillips said he plans to bring ihc
conslitulion back to school after the vacation "and
hopefully, we can straighten out this mess."
('onsii in ions of all SA groups arc supposed to be on file
in lite Student Association and Student Activities offices,
according lo Assistant Director or Student and University
Affairs Jessica Casey. However, she explained that copies
of all class constitutions are filed, with the exception of
SA Office Manager Rita Lcvinc noted that the situation
is the same at the SA office. She questioned whether or
not ihe conslitulion was ever filed.
"According lo the index sheet it was not here last summer," Lcvinc said, adding, "1 don't know if il was ever
Casey was unable lo say whether the conslitulion was

she has only been at her present job for one year.
Although she contends thai she has never seen a copy
of the constitution, Casey commented, "There is no
doubl in my mind thai there was a constitution at some
time." She explained that "sometimes groups will borrow
a conslitulion and forget to return it."
Fody said the fuel ihal a constitution is missing from
both offices "seems strange" but is probably just a "I'll
ing error."
Class of '84 Secretary Ellen Murray and Treasurer Pete
Oiglio, boll) maintained that they've never seen a copy of
the constitution,
Class council member Ann Marie LaPorta said she
hasn't seen a constitution since freshman year, when she
"discarded il while packing." She explained, "I don't
believe il was my responsibility lo keep the constitution
for this class — I was only a member, not an officer."
Several council members complained that they arc being told by Fody how elections will be conducted, what
constitutional amendments were previously made, and
what Ihc requirements arc to obtain voting privilcdges,
without a conslitulion to document it.
However, Phillips attacked some of the members who
have complained about the management of Ihc Class of
'84, saying, "1 see a very insincere motivation in the Class
