1983 Danes come to bat sporting youthful look

1983 Danes come to bat sporting youthful look
By Marc Schwarz
The Albany Stale Oreat Danes baseball
team enters the I983 season with a youthful
look in the field and on the bench. The Danes
lineup will feature live new starters and a
rookie manager.
"My goal is always to have a better record
than the year before," Albany Slate baseball
head coach Dave Haighl said. "Improvement over the year before Is-always Important."
Haight in his first year as pilot of the
Danes, will be Irying to improve on last spring's 9-I0 season. An assistant coach for the
football leam, llaighl will be leading a young
and somewhat inexperienced Albany leam.
"I figure we will have a comparable season
(lo lasl year)," he said.
Haight is the offensive coordinator for the
football leam and was an assistant to last
year's head baseball coach Mark Collins.
When Collins lefl Albany this summer,
Haight was given Ihe job of baseball conch.
He will be Ihe fourth coach for the leam in
Ihe pasl two years. Prior lo Collins, who
managed Ihe leam for the spring season lasl
year, Vince Carncvale coached ihe leam during Ihe I98I fall season. Rick Skecl was Ihe
skipper of Ihe Danes for Ihe previous iwo

Seniors Mike Garlmcnt, Ron Massaroni
and Ralph Volk combined for a 6-9 record
last year and will be instrumental to this
year's success. Massaroni led Ihe team in
complete games and Innings pitched while
compiling an impressive 2.55 era. Volk was
second on the leam in complete games and
led Ihe team In victories with three. His 4. II
era was second best on Ihe squad. Carlman
was third in both era and innings pitched
while recording a 1.2 record.
Albany will probably go with a five-man
staring rotation because of Ihe many
doublchcaders they will play this season. The
other two spots will be shared among Tom
MeCarlhy, Sieve Dolen and Chris Fletcher.
McCarthy saw limited action lasl year and
will be used as a long reliever and spot
starler. Dolen, a junior transfer from Nassau
Community College, "looks excellent," according to llaighl. Fletcher, a freshman, is
the other possible starter and is one of ihe
hardest throwers on the staff. He has been
clocked at 89 miles-per-hour. The Danes will
get relief help from Joel Aulogia and Glenn

"Hopefully his will get ihem some needed experience," Haight said.
Haight is hoping to platoon Rich Wander

to Haight. Thclman, a freshman, has surprised everyone. "He is probably one of the best

Men's indoor track team takes eighth at States
By Tom Kucnndcs
The Albany Stale men's indoor track team ended their
season with an eighlh place finish at the NY Stale Championships held lasl Friday and Saturday at Fredonia.
Fredonia Stale look first place followed by Cortland,
Brockporl, and the University of Rochester. Twentythree teams competed In all.
Albany's finish was somewhat disappointing according
lo head coach Bob Mttnsey. "We aren't a big mccl team,
but we didn't have a great day cither," Mttnsey said. He
cited the long trip, Ihe loss of sprinter Mitch Harvard, and
several sub-par performances as reasons.
There were, however, quite a few bright spots for
Albany during the rainy weekend, First among these was
sophomore Marc Mcrcurlo, who took second place in the
35-pound weight throw and broke his own school record
for the sixth lime this season. Mcrcurio's throw of 15.83
meters was nearly three feet more than last week's record.
"Marc has improved all season, he's definitely the best
wcighlman in Albany history," said Munscy.
Another outstanding performance came when
freshman Bruce Van Tassel nabbed fourth place in Ihe
50-mclcr high hurdle final. His time of 7.0 seconds equals
his best all season.
Captain Eric Newton also scored big points for Ihe
Danes with his fourth place finish in the 500-mctcr run.
Also In the 500, Pal Saccoclo ran a season-best time of
1:08.6, but did not make it lo Ihe very competitive finals,
Other Albany scorers were Bill Nason, who took sixth
place in the shot put, and captain Paul Mance, who leapt
13.27 mclcrs for sixth place in the triple jump. Mance also
recorded a best ever mark of 6.47 meters In the long jump,
but did not score.
Both Ihe 4x400-mctcr and the 4x800-mcler relays peaked at Slates with season-best limes. The 4x800-mc|cr
relay of Jim Erwin, Tom Kacandcs, Noel Woodburn, and
Winston Johnson ran 8:03.5 lo win their section and place
fifth overall. Early on, the team lagged behind the
leaders, but Woodburn passed five runners to give Ihe
Danes a big lead, running an outstanding split of 1:56.9 in
the process.
The slow track surface at Fredonia hurt Albany's
4x400-metcr relay, who ran their best race all season, but
only slightly bettered their lime. The learn of Tony Rizzo,
Mike Rigglns, Darren Pralt and Newton ran 3:29.1 to
finish fifth overall.
In the team scoring, the Danes finished behind area
rivals Union and RPI for the first time all season. This
was mostly due lo Ihe nature of the Slate meet where runners must win in the trials and semi-finals in order to score
in Ihe finals. The '83 Danes have a great deal of depth
and competitive talent, but are sorely lacking the
"superstar" type or talent that scores against statc-meel
level competition. Only Mercurio, Newton, and Van
Tassel could be considered such. Senior Milch Harvard,
who scored big lasl year, missed most of the posl-season
competition because of a hip injury, but will hopefully
return for outdoor. The season ended before marly of the
younger Danes had time to develop Ihe potential they
showed in Ihe dual meets.
In those early meets (he indoor Irackslcrs showed grcal
promise. Albany beat Springfield for Ihe first lime al their
Williams opener in January. They also lost lo host
Williams, but went on lo trounce RPI, Union, Wcstfield,
and Plallsburgh. The Danes entered the post season 7-1,
their best record ever. Yet, the depth that helped Albany
' in the dual meets was of too low a level to allow the Danes
lo dominate big meets as they did single opponents.
Albany continued lo score well and improve, but as Ihe
leam moved into higher levels of competition ihe momentum faded. Despite (his, the '83 season was one of the
most successful in the history of Ihe indoor Irack program.

Budget alleviates cuts, but funds remain tight
By l.nri Van Auken
Fears of extensive universily-widc layoffs
and (he closing or cerlain SUN Y college campuses were temporarily quelled by the March
27 passage of the stale budget, in which stale
lawmakers added $13.7 million to the SUNY
budget, bringing il to a $39.5 million total.
Layoffs or SUNY employees, 35 or which
were scheduled ror Albany, will most likely
be rescinded, according to Vice Chancellor
I'or University Affairs Robert I'crrln.
Nevertheless, Pcrrin said other SUNY
budget cuts will create a wave of after-shocks
in ihe university system, indicating that
SUNY's fiscal problems arc far from over.
"Legislative actions have only alleviated,
but not eliminated the problem at SUNY,"
Perrin warned. "There will still be difficulties
and there will still be cuts."
SUNY students will be facing a $300 increase in in tuition. A projected $1.6 million
will be raised from an increase in application
fees. Other university fees have not been ruled out, but their exact nature is yet unknown.
Also, in un effort to avert university
layoffs, Perrin explained thai approximately
$26 million was shifted from other program
areas Into the personnel portion of the
budget. This money was derived from $12
million savings in energy, the result of a mild
winter and lower fuel costs, $1.6 million from
increased application lees, a $5.4 million
reduction in supplies, n $1.5 million reduction in building repairs, und a $900,000
reduction In SUNY Central Administration
and Computing Center expenses.
An unesllmated amount of added revenue
from bonding surpluses was also included to
prevent faculty and staff reductions, according to Director or the SUNYA Office of
Financial Management Eugene Gilchrist.
Despite these cuts and the $300 lotion hike,
SASU Legislative Director Steve Cox said he
was "extremely pleased" with the final
"We had to come up with money
somewhere," Cox explained, adding dial Ihe
state and SASU had lo make a priorily decision to "politically choose between raising
tuition or saving programs."
According to SASU President Jim Ticrney
SUNY conducted the "blggesl lobbying day

"Everything clicked," Ticrney said, adding thai SASU and lobbying university
students successfully restored 2,500 proposed
university-wide luyoffs und received an extra
$10 million lo prevent a tuition increase of
$50, thus bringing the tuition hike lo iis current $300 level.
In addition, Ticrney said, the Slate University lobbying effort eliminated a proposed
$150 room and board hike, a $2O0-$250 mandatory health fee, n $50 athletic Ice, a common area fee and bus fee,
Although plans for many ol' these fees
were not completely eliminated, Ticrney said
students will at least not be paying them during the 1983-84 fiscal year.
"Stanley Fink is lite hero in Ihe campaign

Higher Education Committee.

vacancies in university personnel. Furthermore, many employees may lake advantage
of the slate's new curly retirement benefits
plan, creating new vacancies which may also
remain unfilled or cut.
Two hundred university employees, excluding faculty, are eligible for early retirement, o r those, 45 have chosen Ihe plan and
more may be added before the May 2
deadline, explained Holly Hawkcs of Ihe
SUNY-Albany Personnel Office!
Because faculty members are under a different union retirement system, special
legislation is needed lo include Ihem under a
slate employee early retirement program.
Such legislation is currently being discussed,
Hawkcs said.
Personnel Director Leon J. Calhoun said
that the official number of layoffs will be
determined by the number of university
employees who will opi for the slate early
retirement plan. While the university has
received no official notice to rescind its
layoffs, Calhoun said the 35 layoffs have
been deferred lo May 5 from their original
April 7 date.
"This is a tough situation to manage,"
said Albany President Vincent O'l.eury.
"The whole campus will feel the cuts in programs and we will have lo live With the conse-

There are currently 96 vacancies al Albany
which could be targeted for elimination.
These include 12 faculty positions, 40 finance
and business administration positions, 18
research and educational development positions, and seven full time leaching and
graduate assistanlships.The remaining 26
vacancies are spread throughout the offices
of university, student and academic affairs,
as well as ihe president's office.
The exact number of program and position
cuts for individual SUNY campuses will not
be known until later next week when SUNY
Central Administration and the State Division of Budget agree on the specific school
allocations. Once this plan is revealed,
O'Leary and the sice presidents will agree on
specific program of allocations at SUNYA.
State commission supports dorm damage fees
By Tim Shell
The dormitory common area damage fee
was recently endorsed by a stale commission
which cites alcohol and a general lack of
respect for properly as the major reasons for
vandalism damage "lo Ihe tune of an
estimated $600,000 a year" in the SUNY
The Legislative Commission on Expenditure Review, "a reliable arm of the
legislature" as its co-chairman, Senator John
Marchi(R-Stalen Island) believes, released a
report which says SUNY "has denied campuses authorization for a common area
charge to recover vandalism costs," which
range between $630,00 to $652,000 at
SUNY's 26 dormitory campuses.
The report surveyed 11 campuses and
estimated Ihe costs due to vandalism range
between $186,068 to $507,348, with costs per
resident running from $5.47 lo $14.93.

Stipend policy changes result
in conflict within Central Council

Central Council in session
Several stipend changes were strongly debated.

If so , you can clear up some of those misunderstandings
and get your questions answered-
Come hear Prof. Marty Edelman
(who teaches Israeli Politics here at SUNYA)
Conflict over SA stipend recommendalions prompted chair of thc"-slipcnd policy
review commlllec Dan Robb to resign from
Central Council Wednesday evening.
The off-campus representative, who submitted his resignation prior lo Council's
Wednesday night meeting charged that
"when some members have tried to innovate
or change aspects o f SA they've been met
with discouragement and disagrccabler attitudes by the higher-ups." He added that Ihe
criticism was not directed toward Central
Council Chair Jeff Fromm.
The stipend committee's recommendations
were presented to Council Wednesday night
in Ihe form of a one-page proposal listing all
present stipends and proposed changes.
Council heavily debated several proposed
changes, particularly a proposed decrease in
SA Media Director Libby Post's stipend but
voted to send the policy back to committee.
Robb maintained that Ihe stipend committee has been working since early Fcbmnry
and has a rationale for each stipend. He said
he wasn't sure what council members wanted
to know so he opened Ihe floor for questions
during the meeting. " I don't know what
more I could have d o n e , " he said.
In response to Council's decision, Robb,
whose resignation had not yet been announced to Council, told them "amend that to say
a newly formed committee, "announcing lo
the Council that he had resigned.
Fromm said later that he would chair Ihe
new committee.

Robb explained that there were several
reasons for his resignalion, and controversy
over the stipend recommendations was only
the " c u l m i n a t i o n " of a year o f aggravation
;that) is really more than one person should
have to endure," he said. Corso said he Is
"disappointed" in Robb for resigning. " T o
me resigning is a weakness," he noled.
Corso attributed much of the problem to
" m i s c o m m u n i c a t i o n , " adding that he never
" f o r m a l l y " met to discuss goals with Ihe
committee, which in addition to Robb included A p r i l Gray and Anthony Nastri.
N o wrilten rationale was submitted with
the proposal. " T h e Information was noi

Both SA President Mike Corso and

submit a "review of the stipend policy," as
well as recommendations for specific
Robb's interpretation differed. " M y
understanding of Ihe stipend committee was
that it was supposed to bring equity inlo the
stipend figures," he said.
Currently the people holding key positions
in SA and several SA funded groups such as
W C D B and Speakers F o r u m , receive
stipends ranging from $175 lo $2250.
During the meeting Fromm argued that the
committee's recommendations were "random".
" W h a t the committee didn't do is come up
with a rationale for Ihe stipends...It was a stipend policy committee, not a stipend budget
committee," Fromm said.

Layoffs not expected to cripple Health Service
By Liz Reich
Seven positions in the Student Health Service have been eliminated as a result of
budget cuts, according to Dean of Student
Affairs Neil Brown.
The Health Service has lost four nursing
and three physician positions said Director
Janet Hood. Of the physicians cut one position is currently unfilled while the two other
positions are staffed by three physicians on a
part time basis, she said.
The layoffs are scheduled lo go into effect
May 22, bin Brown is confident that they will
be rescinded when Ihe school budget is
finalized since slate cuts were lighter than expected.
" 1 don't want lo gel into dollars, but (the
Health Service) will have to come up with
substantial savings al Ihe end of Ihe academic
year," Hood asserted. " T h e savings will have
lo come from partially replacing some of the
positions thai were pink-slipped and from the
Early Retirement P r o g r a m . " At least three
nurses will retire under the Retirement Incentive Program and Hood docs not expect thai
they will be replaced. Under the program,
"slate employees who announce their retirement between now and May 2 and who retire
by June 1 will receive three extra years of
retirement credit," Brown explained.
We're in a b i n d , " Hood admitted. " B u t I
think we're going to be able lo maintain a
reasonable level of health care. 1 believe wc
will be able to maintain our in-patient service, which we sorely need on Ihis campus. If
we didn't have an In-patient service (hose
who were sick would have lo go to the
hospital. We will be down at least one physician. There will be no lime for increasing
psychiatric care," she explained.
The Student Health Service is extremely
cost effective," Hood stressed, " b u t it stands
out on a large budget." While il is costly, she
contends, " t h e quality of the Health Service
is related to the quality of the university or
college. The top-notch schools all have topnotch health services, Why would they
bother if It wasn't important?" she asked,
Consultation at ihe Health Service is now
free,, but Hood supports the idea o f in-

siitullng a small lee for students in two or
three years. " T o ask ill students lo subsidize
lite Health Service is unfair and cosily lo administer," she said. " M o s l colleges and
universities, even p u b l i c ones, have
something on the bill for health care. It could
be based on Ihe number of credit hours carried or a flat lee for all students."
Brown said such a fee is " n o t possible
under Slate University legislation, The Board
of Trustees have enough ideas lo raise tuit i o n , " he said. "There was a half-hearted attempt three years ago for a health care fee,
bill the money didn't go lo the Health Service, it went lo the Stale University. I
wouldn't mind seeing a well-structured fee if
Ihe money was really used by ihe Health Service, bin ihe Board of Trustees isn't at thai
Hood added, " A l t h o u g h Ihe fee Is not
possible right now I ihiuk it's imporlani lo be
discussing il and perhaps from committees
Brown is currently looking for ways lo
economize the Health Service. One target
area for the slate system Is voluntary
furloughs. In tbut program, employees with
school-age children agree lo lake o f f several
weeks without pay lo spend lime with their
families. "Some nurses requested leave
withoul pay for two or three weeks in the
summer," said Brown. " W e ' r e also looking
carefully lo see whether any costs can be
decreased." He said Ihe prescriptive medication dispenser, or pharmacy, of ihe Health
Service Is a convenience for students and its
prices are competitive, He is examining the
worth of that, and of Ihe in-patient service.
" T h e In-patient service seems valuable,"
Brown remarked, "because il saves students
from going h o m e . "
" W e ' l l know by May 2 bow many nurses
will retire, and hopefully by this week
whether the layoff notices will be rescinded,"
Brown said.

The University Senate voted Monday to
table an amcndcnl condemning differential
t u i t i o n proposed by Senator
Chonigam because it is a "dead issue," according to senate chairman H. Peter Krosby.
The case has been closed, according lo
Krosby, because the state legislature has
acted on a final budget for SUNY and there
" i s no need to go on record al this l i m e , " by
having Ihe senate adopt such a resolution,
According lo Chouigman, who is opposed
lo differential tuition, the senate should act
now on the issue, which he said is sure to
come up again, rather than "pass the b u c k "
to a new and inexperienced senate.
Chonigman's resolution followed a letter
he directed to President Vincent O'Lcary
charging ihat during a March 14 senate
meeting a motion to discuss differential tuition was blocked out and that Ihe executive
commlllec of the senalc ingnored senate bylaws by not presenting the texi ot its action to
ihe full senate.
In his campaign against differential tuition, Chonlgman charged that an executive
committee meeting on Feb 18 acted inappropriately by adopting a resolution favoring
differential tuition. " I l is possible lhat they
called thai meeting to avoid Ihe entire
senate," he said. Chouigman noted thai
there are no elected student senators on the
executive committee, with S.A. president
Mike Corso the only student represented.
Krosby denied that Ihe executive committee violated senate by-laws in presenting ils
aciion lo the full senate, saying, " T h a i Is
sheer nonsense. The lexl was not displayed
simply because Ihis is a dead Issue."
The reason lite executive committee met in
emergency session, said Krosby, was because
the senate had lo act before the SUNY Board
of Trustees made their decisions in laic Feb..
Otherwise the action of the senate would
have hail little meaning. " W e had to at least
provide moral support for our president,"
said Krosby, adding lhat the executive committee does not customarily act in such an independent fashion.
According lo Krosby, the vole lo put aside
the Chonlgman resolution was so overwhelming that he did not even bother lo gel an exact
count. " Y o u have lo remember that Ihe
faculty will always be for differential tuition
if the circumstances demand it—and it appears that Ihey demand i l . " Krosby stressed
that the executive committee aciion was
taken with ihe understanding that all differential tuition monies would come back lo
ihis campus.
He added thai faculty views on ihis issw
combined with student opposition lo deferential tuition has led lo a polarization in
the senate—which works to the advantage of
the facility because two-thirds to the senate is
from the faculty.
Not all student senators supported
Chonigman's resolution even if Ihey do oppose Ihe concept of differential tuition. Mike
llagerty, a senator from Alumni Quad, said
lie believed Chonigman's resolution should
be revised, and lhat he would not .support it
as il stood. " T h e resolution does not rcprescnl all students," Hagcrty said, " w e need lo
be more responsible. 1 favor the issue," he
atlded, " b u t 1 question his methods,"
Hagcrty agreed lhat ihe senate was polarized on Ihe issue, bin disagreed with
Chonigman's contention lhat the executive
committee was negligent in reporting its Information lo the senate. " W e were
i n f o r m e d , " he said, " b u t il was not as clear
as it could have been.
"Nevertheless," Hagcrty added, " 1 think
It is irresponsible for anyone to say the executive committee was at f a u l t . "
Senator Harold L. Cannon, a business
professor and member of Ihe executive committee, said thai according to senate by-laws,
the commlllec can rcporl out its action any
way it wants. Bui he added that in this case,
"that was entirely Krusby's decision—not
Cannon said ihat he fell Chonlgman had
insulted the executive commlllec and diverted
attention from the issue. He said lie fell lhat
the idea of differential tuition should be
discussed in a less-charged atmosphere,
Now lhat the resolution has been tabled,
Chonlgman said he plans no further action
this semester. "There is nothing more to do
Ihis year," he said, " b i n if I'm re-elected, I
will pursue it early next year." He said he is
against differential tuition because il would
segregate economic classes and unjustly
discriminate against lower and middle income students. Additionally, he said, differential tuition introduces the idea of a
layered university with elite Institutions.
Krosby, on ihe other hand, said he supports (he concept of differential tuition and
its implementation in certain circumstances,
Since the quality of education is superior al
the university centers, lie said, it is acceptable
that students pay more tuition.

Lack or parking facilities is a major complaint on the SUNYA campus. Over the last live years approximately 34,(XXJ parking lickels have
been Issued by the Deportment ol
Public Surety.
Lloyd lleberi, Director or the
Traffic Division ol' the university's
Department ol' Public Safely said,
"We write about 5,(XX) tickets over
the summer and about I5.IXX) a

According to lichen, Ihe reason
lor ihe greal number of tickets is
laziness, "Sludcnls are either too
lazy lo park in the student lots, or
are lute to class." lie added that
"there are plenty ol' signs," so Ignorance of the parking regulations
is not u valid reason lor Ihe high
number ol' violators. "Many people
just lake a chance and hope not to
get caught," he said.
"Close spots (near ihe podium
and in front of each Quad) are for
those willi medical reasons or occupational reasons," explained
Hcbcrl. Special permits are issued
lo those who lor a number ol'
reasons "need direct and close access to their cars," he added.
Many students complain that
there is not enough parking, but
lleberi said "the two big lots near
Duleh and State arc seldom rail."
Herbert did admit thai the Colonial and Indian Quad lots are
small, bul that "it's parlly because
there are woods around them, and
the university built these while
Dutch and Slate lots were built by
the state.
lu addition to the four Quad lots
there ure two Monthly Pay Lots
outside of Dutch and Colonial
Quads, lleberi said, which run on a
first-come, first-serve basis. Trie
Visitor's Lot, located between the
circle and Slate Quad, is available
lo anyone lor parking during Ihe
week lot an hourly lee.
At night and on weekends, said
Hcbcrl, ihe parking regulations are
more lenient. Studenls with
registered cars can park in special
permit areas after 4:00 p.m.. in lire
Visiiot's Lot after 3:30, and in the
monthly lots aftct 4:30 p.m. on
weekdays. All of these lots are
unrestricted on Saiurday and Sunday, lie said.
J.M, Canto, an officer ai the
Department of Public Safely, said
his office has issued approximately
3,213 I'acully-slulT, and about 7,%2
student registration dccals, "There
is always someplace to park," he
said, bul added that on "Colonial

Muny students, however, find il
unfair and Inconvicncnt lo have lo

One student, also a university
employee, who declined lo be identified, stiid she comes in during the
day and has to observe daytime
rules, but doesn't get a chance lo
leave until late at night. "I don't
appreciate having lo go out to the

The class of '84 Council voted
during (wo recent meetings, to hold
campus wide elections for class officers, open 15 seats on class council, in addition to resolving sonic
controversial issues surrounding a
missing constitution.
Junior class President Chip l-ody
said he feels the situation has been
resolved and hopefully the class can

On Monday night, Former class
of '84 President Tom Phillips
presented the class council with
what is apparently the only remaining copy of the class constitution.
Copies which were supposed to be
filed with SA and the student activities office have been reported
The council reviewed the constitution, making changes in the
elections procedure which hail been
agreed upon at a previous meeting,
and clarified several ambiguous
The council added a sentence lo
the constitution that says "no more
than one meeting may be held in 24
hours." This was done because any
member of llie Junior class can acquire voting rights by attending
three consecutive meetings, and
several council members accused
Phillips of holding three consecutive meeting and using this
policy to his advantage in the past.
Complaints made by council
members concerning elections procedures had prompted class president Chip I-'ody to hold a meeting
on Tuesday, March 22, to discuss
elections policy.
The class council voted to end the
policy of electing class officers
within the class council and decided

Each fall, the
Chronicle of
Higher Education conducts a national survey of admissions trends.
This year, the survey reveals that
the number of freshman applications at private colleges is 7 percent
higher than this time last year, while
public school applications have
decreased by 8 percent.
However, the impact of this information is less considerable when
viewed in light of the Chronicle's
survey of enrollment trends, and
statewide estimates of enrollment in
A November 1982 report to the
New York State Commissioner of
Education and the Board of
Regents by the Stale Education
Department revealed that enrollment at private colleges in New
York State actually declined 2.2
percent for a loss of 9,220 students.
State University schools reported a
.1 percent drop in enrollment in
1982, or a loss of 385 students.
This change is slight considering
thai SUNYA intentionally reduced
their targeted enrollment for 1982
from 2,200 to 1,950 to alleviate the
swelled university population. For
the 1983 school year the targeted
enrollment is back up to 2,200, according lo the slate report.

cent. The Chronicle slated that onethird of the nation's private institutions reported losses of more than
10 percent in their freshman classes
last fall.
The reasons for this confusion
between admisssions data compared to the enrollment data contained in the Chronicle's report is
that application trends arc almost
irrelevant, according to Hart. The
basic component for evaluating
educational trends is actual enrollment, not applications, he said.
"There is nothing terribly different going on," said Hart about
ing for specific employment upon
graduation, especially in such
growth industries as computers and
related programs such as data processing.
Total statewide figures overall for
both private and public institutions
show that enrollment is down .5
percent or 5,181 students. According to the report this decrease is
due mostly to a decline in graduate
and part time enrollment. The N.Y.
state report revealed a drop in
graduate enrollmcmt of five percent.
Gary Hudgcns, spokesman for

drop of that magnitude . . .next

the enrollment in colleges. In fact
the quality of incoming students is
higher than in the past." This trend
is the result of the national
economic situation and the value of
public education, he maintained.
The stale's survey reported that
the largest increase statewide was at
community colleges, where enrollment was up four percent. This
growth is most likely a reflection of
the slate's economy, Hart added,
since these colleges offer the attraction of low cost education, near
students' homes, and because they
offer programs which provide Irain-
the National Association of Stale
Universities and Land Grant Colleges, believes that the decline in
public school applications reflects
reluctance to apply early, rather
than a future decrease in public
school enrollment. "We aren't expecting any kind of drop of 'that
magnitude in actual enrollment next
fall," he said.
Regarding the future of public
education, Hart was optimistic. "If
there is a battle going on between
public and private sector schools,
public sector schools are winning."

University researcher finds hope in cancer drug
8, 1983 I i ALBANY
Interferon, an enzyme produced
within the molecular cell, may be
the long sought cure for cancer, as
well as the common cold, according
10 biology professor ( o n ado
In his lecture, " T h e Body's l i i s t
Line o f Defense against Viral Infect i o n : Interferon and Mow it
W o r k s , " Bagllonl discussed the
"encouraging" possibilities of Interferon used with other drugs to
stop ihe common cold and lo slow
down the growth of cancer cells.
According to Bagllonl, Interferon
used on volunteer cancer patients
has had positive results, liuglioni
told his audience that, "Interferon
produces improvement in many
cancer cases bill hasn't given complete remissions y e t , "
Interferon is a protein that is
secreted by cells when they arc infected by a virus. This secretion
prepares uninfected cells for Ihe
virus Infection, causing ilium to
manufacture enzymes thai are not
usually present. These enzymes
make the uninfected cells resistant
so that when the virus reaches them
the infection is stopped.
Baglioni explained Hint " I n terferon cannot be used in combination with other drugs, such as in
chemotherapy, until it is discovered
why the enzyme slows the growth o f
cancer cells."
High fever, a deficit o f whiteblood cells, and complications
within the central nervous system
are some o f the after-effects o f interferon. Baglioni said that adults
trealed with interferon will have
these affects but that Ihey are reversible. He nolcd that newborn
animals can die from interferon and
early human fetuses do n o l have the
ability to produce Ihe enzyme.
The drug can be produced outside o f the body by inserting an interferon gene into bacteria and ihen

Baglioni also discussed experimentation! In England, where
volunteers are sprayed Willi Interferon and Ihen infected with
drops o f a virus so researchers can
monitor Ihe colds which Ihey
develop. " T e l l years ago a spray of
interferon cost a hundred dollars.
Now It's down to ten dollars, soon
it will be a dollar a spray," said
Cattle vaccinated with interferon
have avoided "shipping fever,"
which had produced a substantial
economic loss until the drug proved
successful, Baglioni.said. He added
thai eye infections caused by herpes
which can eventually lead to blindness were prevented when Interferon was used In combination

Why is Mario smiling?
t would seem now is the time that Governor
Mario Cuomo has earned himself a little rest
and relaxation. The state budget was not only
balanced, but it came out on time. In addition, the
SUNY system appears to have weathered the storm
with little damage to its academic excellence. Indeed
Mario might feel secure about smiling over the situation and giving himself a little of pat on the back.
And he's not the only one who might be smiling.
Down at SASU headquarters President Jim Tierney
and company also have reasons to be proud. The
group coordinated the largest SUNY lobbying effort
that the state legislature has ever seen. Threats of
drastic cuts coupled with huge cost hikes were
transformed into relatively minor cuts and moderate
cost increases.
It looks like he used one or the oldest tricks of the
bargaining table - "shoot high and aim low." The
tuition increase and various cuts of the actual budget
seem a mere pittance when compared to the governor's proposals. But such an approach is not common among members of a "big happy family." Was
traditional bargaining procedure the only rationale
behind Mario's proposals?
During his campaign, Cuomo earned the support
of students, including the valuable SASU endorsement. During his first major test as governor, he
earned the emnity of those same students, as
demonstrated in the SASU lobby day. From the
point of view of SUNY students, this obvious contradiction provokes a second look. Was Cuomo the
It appears that both parties have the right to be
feeling some satisfaction. Yet can Mario's smile really be genuine? Some questions need to be asked —
and answered.
What was the reasoning behind Cuomo's proposals? In the wake of the triumphant passage of the
budget, the governor appears to be a man willing to
make unending sacrifices to realize his "one big happy family" vision of New York. Were his original
proposals pregnant with ulterior motives? What is
the reality behind all the budgetary drama?
candidate manipulating student opinion with p r o .
miscs not to touch the SUNY system? Was Cuomo
the governor testing student reaction with his
outrageous budgetary proposals? The answer to both
questions seems to be an unavoidable yes.
The final budget, which the governor can claim
partial responsibility for, appears to have "saved"
the SUNY system, which casts a somewhat heroic
light on Mr. Cuomo. What kind of response could he
expect had he stuck to his original promises, and ended up with the present tuition increase and position
cuts? Obviously, Mario has come out of this looking
much better than he ought to. But no one ever accused him of being stupid.
So SUNY is saved, and Mario is the hero! I low can
we in the world of academia not welcome the paltry
increases and cuts, and not thank the governor for
sparing us in these hard times? Well, maybe we
should breathe a sigh of relief that we were spared the
worst. Maybe we too should smile and celebrate the
passing of the state budget. But we must look
through the smiles and to the facts. What laces the
SUNY community are a $300 tuition hike, cuts in services, and a governor we helped elect who virtually
turned his back on us. Mario Cuomo has so far not
treated us with the honesty and compassion one expects in "a big happy family," So what are we all
smiling about?
Manifest destiny and cheaper beer
Colonialism has been a constant theme of many foreign
nations. The opportunity to gain rich lands with few problems with the local populous is, with the obvious benefits,
a rewarding enterprise. The U.S. claims to avoid this pattern, but our gains from South America and Mexico could
be used to belie this fact. There has been, however, even up
to now, a running desire to seize a larger and more useful
country than the banana republics south of us—I'm spcaking of Canada, And I say—go for it!
L. S. Lane
Canada and the US have the largest unguarded border In
the world. This is an open invitation to invade—they don't
expect it, they don't have much of an army, and they
already speak English! There are lots of resources up there,
with open country to let Jimmy Walt run Tree In, There are
even a lew French-speakers, to add culture to our plasticand-McDonulds wasteland. The problems most countries
find are that the culture is alien to their own, that the nations grow hostile alter a while, and that the country might
even be a financial burden—but not Canada! Nope—ibey
have a culture remarkably like ours, with all the entrapping! of human, American civilization. They have lots of
British imports, which will allow the Anglophiles in our
midsts to go crazy with sophistication, and they even seem
to be self-supporting.
Now don't think I'm crazy—this is not really my idea.
The Founding Fathers, old Ben Franklin, Tom Jefferson,
and the boys had similiar ideas. They sent a lew friendly
war parties up there to persuade them nicely but they beat
the Americans back so severely that we arc lucky we didn't
lose New York State. But as of late this country has lost
that impish gleam in its eye to gain this land of toques and
beer, the hometown of such national celebrities as The
McKcnzie Brothers and Margret Trudeau, as well as such
great musical influences as Triumph and Rush. Between
getting more Bradors and open woodland, I can't see why
this plan wasn't implemented years ago—their cities are
cleaner, they have better concerts, the Canadian passport
doesn't have half the dislike of an American passport, and
they have cheaper gas. Hell, half the guys up there are
American draft dodgers anyway—it's practically purs!
They're always complaining about our acid rain, our pollution, our mllitury, our lack of culture—if we invade, they
can be their problems too! No more "it's your fault"—now
the blame can be all of ours! I low democratic!
There have been fringe elements in this movement to
liberate the backward peoples above us—such inane
thoughts as they should invade i/.v—that we could use the
help, the cleaning up. Now first of all, simple-mindedness
does not constitute simplicity (as I have often said of my
past girlfricnds);we arc a complicated society because we
are more intelligent, more intellectual. Only the brain of u
Canadian would name a hockey team alter a term of na-
tional slander, the Canucks. They obviously need our help.
Canadians should have the opportunity to be part of our
imperialistic plans, whether they want to or not (as your
mother would say, It's for your own good.)
Now this Is your chance—pick up where the founding
lathers of our nation failed, let's invade and bring decern
American culture to those British leftovers. Bring them
straightforward green money instead of that silly multicolored stuff, all of which looks the same, with the Queen's
picture (talk about self-centcredncss) Hell, let them look ai
all the dead people like we do. And what about their cheap
coins—what is that stuff, aluminum? The only thing
they're good for is skipping across water, and what do you
do if you want u candy bar and you have some of that stuff
in your pocket—it won't work in the machines! And they
think It's real money! Hell, with a handful of that stuff you
couldn't hit it barn—it's so light! What arc you going lo do
with it—play monopoly?
Now, with their silly currency and aluminum i HMS, WC
have an edge over them. We could make Canail.i .i jur cat
vacation land, all they have is moose, salmon, am urlz/ly
bears. Do you realize we have only recently hat moose
returning to the US? They were all up In Camilla mm do
they know something we don't? We have stupid A ncrican

beer (Why don't they buy Cienesec like I do?). If wi attacked, we could lake control and sell the stuff lot $2,
huh? Molson, Bradors—all oursl The greatest ochii
Canada has had in the last hundred years has been i
the Molson label from green lo red! If il wasn't
Newfoundland "Newfles", the Canadians would

So, hey—we invade, hell? We bring sonic douglin

no ornate furniture, no cushioned chairs,
not even a carpet. It's w r y minimal. A
hangout for Columbia students and Intellectuals, Hungarian Pastries lies kittycorner from St. John the Divine, the largest
Episcopal Church in. I think, the world.
Patrons of Hungarian Pastries are very
fashion conscious In a boho sort of way

I've been told that the Turks Introduced the
croissant to Austria. The Turks, being
Moslems, brought their symbol. Ihe moon
crescent, Into Austria-Hungary during one
of their many Invasions. The crescent was
somehow fashioned Into dough, later picked up by Napoleon as he turned Vienna Into a heap of rubble, and vollal Ihe croissant
was born.

The girl didn't speak She seemed lost
totally lo the plants ami view It was a nil e
view, the rocks and waves below, the
seagulls calling and crying, Ihe distant
shore beckoning The porch was protected
from ihe sun by a heavy aluminum roof It
was a protected vantage point

He wandered the shore line, his while
pants rolled, his toes kissed by the tiny

her. and yearned to forget his progressive
indignation. But he knew that it would be
postponing the inevitable if he kept her
close. He had to escape, distance himself.
For centuries, one thing symbolized the
value of a man over all others. One item
made a man bigger than he was and that
was land. The earth itself. How much land
does a man need? Tolstoy asked. How
much to elude eternal anonymity? How
much land to trade his commodities on?
How much land to build his homes on?
First came the crude aspirations of barbarians, then the Ideologies. First came the
metals, then the precious metals. First the
raw materials, then Ihe bonds, the
securities, Ihe options, the futures. First the
booty, then culture, then architecture, then
education, then laws, then religion. First
came the prostitutes, the wenches, then
the women. First survival, then consciousness: awareness of a self, Ideas about
other people, a rapport with Ihe physical
world, an Idea of a past and a future and a
working language to go on with every day
life. And there is no life without men and
women. There Is no future. No hope.
That's what every faith, philosophy, and
taboo is concerned with-the regeneration
of life. The world turns. Men are drawn to
women and women to men the way the
moon is drawn to the earth and the earth is
drawn to the sun. The union of men and
women results in the ultimate mystical act.
The creation of new life. But this Is not to
say that other lifestyles are wrong. There is
no reason that one lifestyle must exist to
the exclusion of another. That really gets at
my tit. That one race should prevail at the
exculsion of another. That one's sexual
orientation should exclude all others. The
world Is big enough to allow all customs,
races, practices, and expressions, Why
procreate life If there Is to be no free expression of It? Why advocate choice for
some and deny It to others?
In the pastry shop, I esple a woman No ,
abstraction she, yet I Idealize her :
shamelessly with her very own Song of
Solomon. She Is the world. Her brown hair
shows a reddish tint in Ihe sunlight and It
smells like African violet. Her mouth has
Ihe taste of cinnamon from Malaysia, Her
nipples are cherries from California o r chards. Her belly is as firm as the plains,
softened with sunflower oil from Kansas.
There is no place on her landscape my
tongue won't go. Between her legs 1 laste
the salty water ol the Mediterranean.
The soles of her feet are as red-brown as
Ihe Sinai. Her fingers are long and her
mannerisms are intelligent. Her
reveal the wit and soul of the entire human
race. She is a prototype of the universe, as
we all are. Her bones would calcify in the
desert sun like anyone else's. Her tears are
from the ocean as are all our tears. Her
breath is from the wind and her skin is the
sheath of her being. She is the earth Indeed. She Is a human being and must
someday return to the earth as we all must.
But just for this moment, she is a goddess.
If only for that split second of climax, that
split second of absolute madness when my
fluids are secreted into hers, the confounding mystery of creation is elucidated. This
is what makes the search worthwhile.
New York is going through a kind of
renaissance. Ever since "new wave" started
happening in 7 6 and '77, the very spirit
that seemed to have Imagined the destruction of civilization as its goal has uplifted the
city of New York to new heights. New
hubris has New Yorkers walking upright.
One used to see funky Annie Hall glasses
only on Bleecker and Thompson Streets.
Now, of course, debutantes wear them on
West End Avenue. The oil glut has
tormented a new optimism, a new faith in
American know-how and invincibility. But
It is an illusion. Oil cannot continue to
lubricate the world, no matter who controls
It. Not until mid-decade, not until 1985
or'86 will people realize that we have been
in the throes of a malignant reaction for the
last two decades. Not until mid-decade will
the scenario begin to be played out.
Reagan will be dead, China will move Into
Mongolia or one of the South American
countries will make its move. We'll see
Johannesburg put to the torch and
wholesale genocide in Afghanistan. It Is a
lime for percussion. The African drum will
beat everywhere, especially over here.
Americans will be ratting on each other
again. Naming names and poisoning each
other with lies. Red-necks will lynch
Japanese workers and burn down their factories. A strongman will emerge amidst the
hubbub and mesmerize the faithful. The
federal government will super-nova and
collapse of lis weight. The hospitals will be
torn down. The universities will shelter
middle-class kids while rioting, looting and
general mayhem grip the rest of the
populace. New Yorkers will have lo learn
Spanish or move to Westchester, The
same will hold true in Miami, Houston, Los
Angeles. Angola and Mozambique, too.
From river to river. Manhattan will be in
the death throes. All the prophecies will
come to bear fruit. All religions will ream
die their differences. All lies will be revealed for what they are. I don't mean to sound
anxious (or war. The idea of an actual war
repels me. The sad Irulh. however, is that
people make war willingly. They do It well.
There will be no socialized medicine
without war. The hungry will not be fed
without war. There is more sex during war
More robbery and general abandon. But.
again, the question must be asked-what
kind of war will it be? In the past, wars
brought together the people of a country. It
may require a natural catastrophe.
But there is always the dawn. New York
will not die. The w6rld will not commit
suicide. New standards will be set. New
words will be uttered. A new language will
be bom Subtlety will be the rule of the day
.vill communicate with smiles and
warm gestures. Right now, Ihe human race
Is still In the stone age. Our buildings are
stone, our tools are stone, our bodies are
stone. Technology will usher in the age of
Light. Creature comforts will be provided
at the wave of a wand.
Nuance will be everything. Life will propogate with greater discretion. There will
be no prisons. There will be no schools as
we know them. Life will be art. Life will be
science. There'll be terrariums In Times
Square. Playgrounds In Chelsea. People
will swim again in the Hudson. The world
will use its technology lo illuminate the
world instead of scorching it. The Fausts
and Luclfers of the world will be banished
from the earth. Essays like this one will be
obsolete. Words will yield to music. Prose
will yield lo poetry. Hale will yield to love.
The whole world will be singing In uirse; In

he just couldn't forget her. It was so

She stood by ihe window. The night was
getting cold and she was worried. The
house was not right without him. She
started lo cry. He was not the same these
days, he just sat there and looked at her.
A Sight So Lovely
he old place was nice. It was this
big old house with a spacious
yard. The yrounds were covered
with a lush mixture of grass and weeds thai
was so soft that if you were to lie down and
close your eyes, it would seem like a bed.
In Ihe fall it smelled musty from the rotting
leaves and In the spring it smelled of
flowers and weeds. The farthest boundary
of the yard was a creek that added its
velvety gurguling to everything we did back
there. In the summer we'd catch tadpoles
and in the winter we'd crack the ice with
rocks and the creek would go right on
gurguling oblivious to any person or
animal. The yard was great territory and in
the middle was this old. majestic oak that
stood guard over the house. It wasd
covered with a thick shell of black bark that
was hard to break off and the roots rippled
around Ihe Irunck. anchoring the tree firmly in the ground. The oak had a swing on it
and a treehouse in it thai Ihe gang and I
built one summer.

The tree was special; it was its own lille

almost as high as the top of the roof on ihe

what the neighbors were serving for their
barbeque and maybe Ihey'ed give you
some after you told them how good n
smelled and how good a cook they must

There were no curtains In the windows and
you could see the sun shine through the

were swirling around the bushes near the
driveway, but they flashed away when Dad
started the car. As we pulled out into the
street, the car clanked along, burdened
with Ihe weight of my family and as much

are well worth checking out, Hopefully
with the release of his new album and some

While, artistically, the talents of somcof
jazz's most original and.creative musicians
may be going largely unllstefied to, the
public's familiarity with names like Gil
Scott-Heron and David Sanborn, two saxophonists who lead popular funk/fusion
bands, Is good for jazz in general. Grover
Washington Jr. is a current spokesperson
for Kentucky Pried Chicken, and no matter
which radio station plays his commercial,
there Is an undeniable jazz promotion each
time he stops talking about wings and plays
his sax.
There Is really no mystery as to why the
jazz stations are not playing the biggest selling records. Jazz In general is not an overly
successful commercial business, and while
Grover, Gil and David get airplay on commercial (unk and soul stations, the four)azz
stations named above are non-commercial
(all are college stations except WBGO,
which is an outlet of National Public
Radio). i\\\i\ we all know that noncommercial stations are not required to
play a-sales oriented format.
Occasionally, a jazz release is able to
cross Ihe line to popularity, while remaining in the jazz tradition. One recent example, Quartet, by Herbie Hancock, is experiencing chartmaking sales, while receiving acceptance and airplay on jazz radio
stations. It Is an album of mostly hard driving jazz tunes with the masterful pianist
Hancock joined by the young trumpet sensation, Wynton Marsalis, This combination, along with the fact thai both are highly
promoted Columbia artists, is, In Itself,
! enough to sell records. But the album Is
generally quite good, with both Hancock
and Marsalis delivering four sides of virtuoso soloing, backed by Hancock's long
J time rhythm section of bassist Ron Carter
and drummer Tony Williams.
Qunrref, however, is not an album
without (laws. Hancock, Carter and
Williams were the rhythm section in Miles
Davis' revolutionary quintet of the sixties,
and the playing on this session, although
technically similar to much of Miles'
material of that era, lacks the Intensity and
excitement that surrounded the original.
Echoes of bygone glories abound even In
the choice of material. Hancock's "The
Sorcerer" and Williams' "Pee Wee" were
given their definitive recordings by the
Davis quintet, and their versions here are
pale by comparison. On Thelonlous
Monk's "'Round Midnight" and "Well, You
Needn't," the arrangements are faithful to
Miles', and while these numbers are quite
good, they lack both the urgency present in
the soloing that was typical In Davis' group,
and the charismatic playing of Davis
Although he is undoubtedly and
deservedly the most heralded young
trumpeter of the last decade. Wynton Marsalis cannot fill the void left by Miles'
absence. His playing on these tunes is rarely as inspired as on his impressive debut
album, or as on his work as a sldeman in
Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. Wilh notable
exceptions — the blistering choruses on
Hancock's "Eye of the Hurricane," and
some pretty Milesian playing on '"Round
Midnight" — Marsalis sounds stoic and
crisply efficient. He is a virtuoso player
throughout, but he seems unexciled, or, al
least, unaffected by the excitement of playing with musicians who must have been his
heroes jusl a few years ago, These sessions
were recorded In 1UH0, when Marsalis was
only twenty, and there's really no excuse
for lack of enthusiasm on his part. He is a

slightly too popular for his own good; some

Garcia Marquez Is. of course, the 1(JK2
Nobe! Prize winner for literature and the
leader of what is being called a renaissance
in Latin American writing — a creative
boom that includes the work of Argentinians Jorge Luis Borges. Julio Cortazar,
and Luisa Valenzuela; Mexicans Octavlo
Paz and Carlos Fuentesi Chile's Jose
Donoso and Peru's Mario Vargas Liosa.
Like One Hundred Years of Solitude, It Is a
literature both epic and intimate, realistic
and fantastic, wildly comic while remaining
deadly serious. And like Garcia Marquez
himself, who was born and educated In
Colombia, who worked in Rurope, and
who emigrated to Mexico, It is a literature
which knows no borders, speaking the
language and reflecting the concerns of an
entire continent.
Garcia Marquez began his writing career
in journalism, and returns to many of its
techniques in Chronicle of a Death
Foretold. The fiction is based on fact, with
Garcia using as basis for his story a thirtyyear-old murder of an acquaintance, an act
of violence perpetrated by a pair of
brothers to avenge the deflowering of their
sister. In the novel. Garcia inserts hlmsell
as both narrator and character, returning to
the village (in reality Sucre, a town of Colombia's Carribbe.in coast) 27 years after
the murder to interview anyone who had
knowledge of the crime.
Garcia Marquez's novel, as It becomes Increasingly obvious that, excluding the victim, there wasn't a person In the town who
didn't know the murder was to be committed. Thus. Chronicle of a Death Foretold is
a mystery which tries to answer not who
did It, but rather why no one tried to stop It
from happening. Garcia Marquez has
called William Faulkner his "literary mentor
and master." and In Chronicle of a Death
Foretold we again see why. In One Hundred Years of Solitude there Is the complex
family tree that was a Faulkner trademark,
and Macondo and the Buendlas have surfaced in many of Garcia Marquez's novels
(Colona) Aurellano Buendla, the great war
hero, earns a passing mention in Chronicle. . .). In The Autumn of the Patriarch.
Garcia Marquez's dreamlike unfolding of
the last days of a South American caudillo,
or despot, there is. like In Faulkner, that
same experimentation with grammar and
punctuation (Garcia Marquez discards
both). Chronicle of a Death Foretold
employs another of the "master's" techniques: in this case, a flirtation with lime
which arrives at the truth of the matter only
by circling around and around it. Thus we
know from the book's very first line that
dashing Arab Santiago Nasar is to be
murdered, while it takes all of the book's

what the weather was like on that February

three decades later Is this: following the extravagant wedding of the foppish Bayardo
San Roman to the beautiful Angela
Vicarlo, a wedding so grand that a single

to describe it, the bride Is discovered to
have already lost her virginity, and is
returned to her home in disgrace. Frightened and confused by her mother's savage,
silent beating, she reveals the name of her
"perpetrator," Santiago Nasar, and her
brothers vow revenge. It Is a noisy vow,
uiie the brothers, still drunk from the night
of partying, repeat to nearly everyone they
meet on the street and in Clotilde
Armenia's milk store. Slaughterers by
trade, they make a great show of grinding
and brandishing their pig knives, convincing not a few townsfolk that their threats to
spill Nasar's blood are men* drunken
boasts. The brothers end up slaying Nasar
under the most coincidental of circumstances, near an entrance he seldom
used, against a door that was rarely locked,
at a time when he should have been eating
breakfast with the author's sister.
What taints this classic murder of
revenge is the Inconclusive evidence
against Santiago Nasar. While the author
never proves that the Arab didn't haye
Angela Vicarlo, neither Is there evidence
that he couldn't have. And in that doubt
lies the moral dilemma. "But most of those
who could have done something to prevent the crime, and did not, console
themselves with the pretext that affairs of
honor are sacred monopolies, giving access only to those who are part of the
Garcia Marquez teases us with the
murder, purposely placing events out of
order to heighten our anxiety — the trial
before the crime, the autopsy before the
murder. "Shit, cousin," as Pablo Vlcario
says, " you can't Imagine how hard It is to
kill a man!" It's a Mexican hat dance of
sorts, or, better yet, a bull fight, with the
author dancing about the central event,
saving the orgiastic slaying until the final
pages. The effect Is seductive, and intentionally so. for the novel Is as much about
sex and love as It is about murder. Angela
Vicarlo only comes to love Bayardo San
Roman after he returns her to her family.
Santiago Nasar seems more a victim of his
sexual reputation than of any actual of
(ense. Even the author gets entangled In
this theme of sex. having spent the night in
the "apostolic lap" of a motherly whore.
Like Angela Vicarlo, we learn from the
chronicle of Santiago Nasar's death that
"hate and love are reciprocal passions."
We also learn that within real events are
the makings of great fiction, even If the
authoi can't "admit that life might end up
resembling bad literature so much."
Through Gregory Babassa's masterful transaction (says Garcia Marquez of his work
on . .Solitude: "Babassa improved the
original.") and by the "use of so many
coincidences forbidden in
Gabriel Garcia Marquez has made a thirtyyeai old murder of utter brutality a

lually, this is one of the rare places that the
standard reggae lines come to light. On this

the view of the bystander. "Another

exhausted tone. It's almost as If Grant sees

It's basically a Spanish-Inspired song, but if
you listen closely enough, you'll discover
just a hint of calypso. It's a very clever addition by Granl, and it exemplifies his ability
to arrange music.
The only criticism that can be leveled at
Killer On the Rampage Is the recording
quality. At points, it almost sounds like
you've got sandpaper playing on your
system, but fortunately this doesn't happen
too often. Fortunately (or Eddy Grant,
Killer On the Rampage should receive
widespread acclaim where It counts among the record buying public. It's an accessible, likeable record that should go a

As someone who was involved in planning the forum
"Jewish Identity As Gays and Lesbians" (held March
20th), I would like to thank both JSC-Hillcl and the Gay
and Lesbian Alliance for making it possible to bring this
program to our campus. These two groups displayed a willingness to cross "boundaries" In order lo present an educational forum on a subject which affects many of our
lives—as Jews, non-Jews, gays, and non-gays. By engaging
in this cosponsorshlp, each organization acknowledged Ihe
existence of Jewish gays and lesbians and their right to
come out o f the closet as Jews, and as gays/lesbians.

I am aware o f ihe controversy surrounding the
forum—in particular, the dismay or some that JSC-Hillcl
was involved In cosponsoring the event. 1 commend the
leadership of JSC-Hillcl for standing firm in their belief
that one o f Hillcl's main functions on campus is to serve all
Jewish students—gays and lesbians Included.
The fact that JSC and G A L A together cosponsorcd this
event is an indication that despite our differences we can
work together In attempts to create a more accepting and
supportitivc society for us all. I cannot speak for others
, who attended the program, but I walked away feeling
renewed. The audience was a very diversified group, but we
had one thing in common—the willingness to listen and to
, learn. It gave me hope that although It may lake some lime,
i a network of support among peoples with different oricnla| tlons can and will be built.
Once again I sincerely thank and praise the individuals
who make JSC-Hillcl and G A L A two very special groups.

Apology warranted?
To the Editor:
I would like to thank the ASP rot its impartial reporting
of the teach-in and demonstration held last weekend al
However, I could not lei Glenn Mones' remark about
Carol Berrigan go unanswered. It was demeaning and Insulting, Dr. Berrigan is a woman of integrity, humanism,
and great sensitivity who has been at the forefront of social
protest movements since before Glenn Mones was born. As
a woman whose social conscience has compelled her lo
speak out against the Vietnam war, social inequality of
blacks in this country and in Soulh Africa, as well as the
horror o f nuclear warfare, it was only natural lhat she
speak against Ihe suppression of Palestinian rights. Perhaps
Mr. Mones could not find fault with Dr. Berrigan or any of
the other speakers on their factual reporting, forcing him
lo resort l o offensive personal attacks lo show his frustrations.
I like to feci that we can disagree on issues without having lo resort to this type of personal attacks, Glenn Mones
owes Carol Berrigan an apology both as a woman and a
human being.

That's what Paul and Mary Bland, do in
the delightfully mad movie called Ealing
Rauol Paul Bartel, who plays Paul Bland,
also co-wrote and co-directed the movie
with Richard Blackburn. Bartel, who some
of you may remember as the director of
Cannonball and Death Race 2000. has
created a whole new category for films with
this movie. Not only does he deal wllh the
outrageous Issues of murder, kinky sex,
and cannabllism, but he does so with a very
funny sense of naivete and a sanitized,
cartoon-like violence of Roadrunner or
Tom and Jerry.
Paul and Mary Bland are the perfect
characterizations of American society.
They suppress their blindness to reality,
their anger and frustration with llie system
and today's morality with a veneer of
niceness which up to now has proven very
successful. Their goal is lo someday open
up a restaurant in the country ("Chez
Bland") where Mary (a hospital dietician)
and Paul (a wine collector) can live happily
ever after.
The recessional teeth of the eighties lake
•a chunk oul of the Blands. Paul loses his
job, the bank won't give them the loan Ihey
need to buy the restaurant, and to top it
off, the building where their rent has just
been raised by $175 is crawling wllh Immoral swinging singles throwing orgies
every night. How can a good, clean couple
like the Blands survive?
The answer comes in the lorm of a
drunken lecher who walks Into their apartment from a party down the hall and tries
to rape Mary. Paul chivalrously lops him
over the head with a frying pan only to find
that the drunk has died. The everresourceful Blands go through his pockets
and find the old lecher was carrying hundreds of dollars. An Idea is born.
Enter Raoul, "a hot-blooded, passionate
Chicano" who looks like a cross between
Mailon Brando and Eric Estrada, both
overacting at the same time. He finds out
about Paul and Mary's scheme of collecting
money by murdering "sex-crazed perverts
noho.lv will miss a n y w y , " and wants a
piece of the action Suffice it lo say that the
plot oels more and more outrageous and
that Rauol certainly does get his cut in the
Eating Raoul is black comedy at its finest.
It's a movie of victimization by society and
by the ever-omnlscent System, and lighting
back by those members of society who are
numb to violence and death. The murders
are justifiable because, lo the sll'alghl-laced
Blands, their victims are all immoral
decadents anyway. And it's all done wllh a
warm comedy that keeps you giggling from
slart lo finish.
Because of its farcical handling of normally taboo subjects, Ealing Rauol comes
dangerously close to falling Into the same
pot as John Waters' midnight movies
{Polyester or Pink Flamingoes).Although
there are no obese transvestltes like Divine
mincing across the screen. Buck Henry,
does make a cameo appearance as a
lecherous bank president. Eating Raoul.
however, Is better than a John Waters film.
It has all the black comedy of a midnight
movie without the crassness. There are no
vulgar "scratch and sniff" cards handed out
in the lobby. Only Ihe same old buttered
popcorn and Twlzzlers at the refreshment
stand-- a strni.'-ird slice of the American
way And ,. you look beyond the ouilandisliness, you'll find lhat iMtlng Rauol Is
alot like popcorn. Delicious.

UAS' insensitivity
To the Editor:
I feel lhat there has been a major atrocity committed on
this campus. The University Auxiliary Service (UAS) has
made it clear that there Is a distinction between cooking for
those who arc Catholic and those who are Jewish. I will remind people that over the Lcnlcn period, UAS had managed to serve fish every Friday evening. This past Monday
night, April 4th , which was Ihe last day o f Passover, U A S
had managed lo serve the ultimate menu for those of the
Jewish faith not fortunate enough to be able to cat in (he
kosher kitchen. UAS's menu for the evening was ham and
breaded chicken parmagiana. This Is a major disgrace to all
Jews on campus on the pari of UAS.
Granted, there Is a kosher meal plan on Dutch Quad, but
It Is somewhat Inaccessible to people; it is more cosily, and
may people do not choose l o lake advantage o f it as a
result. Many Jews who arc not observant choose to follow
the customs of Passover, and UAS's menu makes it impossible for (hem lo do so. If UAS can do it for Catholics,
then why not Jews?
I feel thai UAS should be aware of this situation, and I
would like lo see a public apology from them l o all those
Jews on campus who are affected. It is disgraceful to see
that privileges offered to certain students on campus should
not be offered to all by a university service whose job is l o
do specifically so.

Legal rape
To the Kill lor:
Right now, in 1983, New York Slate penal code con, clones the rape of millions of women living in New York
Slate—all of these being nun tied women. Section 1.10.70
bars the victim of rape from prosecuting the rapist for aggravated sexual abuse on the sole basis lhat the victim is
married to the offender.
Any man can sexually abuse, sodomize, or forcibly inset t
a foreign object into the genital openings of his wife. This Is
true even when husband and wife are li ing apart.
Some people reading this may be thinking to themselves,
"Yeah, but how many husbands actually rape (hell
wives?" My first response lo that would be that if one man
rapes his wife and is, in ti manner of speaking, applauded
by New York Stale Law, then that is one too many and in
itself makes a very strong comment about any society that
would condone such an net. M y second response would
have to be to provide figures. Studies conducted by shelters
in New York Slate indicate thai in one-third of violent marBilling Accountants

riages, a beating is followed by rape, sodomy, or the forcible Insertion of a foreign object into (he genital openings of
the victim of the beating. The National Clearinghouse on
Marital Rape pushes that figure to an astounding 80 percent.
Justification of the marital exemption for rape by the
courts has been a fear lhat women will falsely charge their
husbands with rape, Most people would have hoped that
such ancient notions about women would have died out
ulong with St. Jerome vs. Jovinlan. Our courts can no
longer view women in the same light in which they were
viewed in the Middle Ages. Furthermore, i f the courts have
so little confidence in the legal system's ability to weed out
false charges of rape, then what Is the purpose of our legal
system, the courts, or the penal code itself for that matter?
The purpose o f this letter is not to point out the inadequacies of the judicial process. Its purpose is, however, to
point out an injustices and to offer a long overdue solutim
to this problem. Right now it is within your power to g i u
married women the same protection from violent sexual
acts lhat all men and women are entitled to.
NYPIRG, the New York State Public Interest Research
Group, is presently working on legislation that will right
(his grave wrong.

A poor reflection
To the Kdllort
As a freshman I have found reading the ASP quite
helpful in adapting to the SUNYA lifestyle. The articles
were educational, enjoyable, and extremely beneficial at
times. Unfortunately, I can no longer support and respect
the ASP with such enthusiasm any more, i f with any al all.
In the March 18th and 22nd Issue o f the ASP I disappointingly noticed the allowed poor usage of language. " T h e
Game of Love" by Hubert-Kenneth Dickey and "Steady
Eddie" by Lee Grcenslein bolh used unnecessary foul
words and expressions. Many other students and I see no
such need to use this type of language in these articles and
others printed in the ASP. We hear and see (on bathroom
walls, library walls, and desk tops) enough vulgarity and
wish not to read it in tlte school newspaper whose staff
demands readers and respect.
Allowing foul and vulgar words to be printed not only
poorly reflects the ASP editors and staff, but also poorly
reflects the student body and faculty. Therefore, it would
be greatly appreciated i f the ASP staff and editors would
exercise a lilt la more taste, consideration, and censorship in
Ihe selection o f its articles.

Having worked as a full-time legislative intern with
SASU, I can safely sny that it is an effective organization
which not only encourages student participation but which
is actually, run according 10 decisions made by students. In'
fact, the people who work for SASU are SUNY students,
I'his has enabled SASU lo be responsive and in touch with
the needs of students.
I was attracted to involving myself with SASU during
my freshman year in 1980 because its mission was lo ensure
that the stale nininluincd its commitment to accessible,
quality higher education, The need for a statewide student
voice is absolutely necessary to accomplish this goal.
Without it there is no limit to which highci education can
he shut o f f from those who otherwise could not have afforded college had it not been for SUNY. I'his highlights
ihe need for approval of the SASU referendum on April 13
and 14, so that SASU can continue as an organization true
to its mission. .

In a recent report in Ihc Chronicle o f Higher Education which
assessed graduate education programs across the nalion, Albany
Slate was rated most improved in
the departmcnl of sociology over
the past five years.
The report was made by a committee named by the Conference
Board o f Associated Research
C o u n c i l s . In a l l , the report
evaluated 639 doctoral programs in
seven fields in the social and
behavioral sciences. In Ihc field of
sociolgy, approximately 92 Ph.D.
programs were evaluated, and
Albany was ranked in ihc lop 30. In
terms of improvement over Ihc past
five years, Albany and the University o f Arizona shared Ihc highest
rating. The mean score of all Ihc
schools was 50, with Albany scoring
The assessments were made based
on 16 measures which I he committee called "related lo quality."
Among these measures, four were
based on a survey of the reputations
of the doctoral programs among
faculty members in the field. They
• The scholarly competence and
achievements of faculty members in
a stratified random sample of the
departments in the field.
• The effectiveness of Ihc department in educating research scholars
and scientists.
• The improvement o f the program over the past five.ycars.
• How familiar Ihc surveyors
were with the program being rated.
S U N Y A , besides scoring highest
In improvement, scored 56 in faculty quality, 55 in effectiveness and 57
in familiarity with the mean of all
(he schools in each category, again
being 50.
Department of Sociology Chairman Richard Hall said, " W e have,
in fact, been very productive, both
in terms of published papers and
books, and conference presentations. We have an increasingly visible faculty." Hall explained that
not only had the faculty published
profuse and important works, hut
they have been active in Ihc field.
" W e knew we had improved a l o t , "
said Hull.
In a previous study, Hail said,
Albany was not even selected to be
ruled. He said that the current
ruling was very gratifying, though
he thought thai other departments
in the university should have been
ruled higher, in lite oilier fields
covered by Ihc report. Mull at-
tributed the success of the sociology
department lo " u high level of activity by a lot of people." He also
stressed thai the success of the
research program has not been at
the expense of quality leaching,
According to Hall, after gelling
their I'h.D.'s roughly half of the
graduates go on lo work for the
state, or In research operations for
companies. Relatively few, he said,
go into the academic market to
become professors. There arc
presently 23 faculty members and
about 45 doctoral students in the
sociology departmcnl, said Hull.
H a l l also c o m m e n t e d that
although Ihc department is not ycl
competing for graduate students
with such leading schools as
Berkeley and Ihc university of
Chicago, it is vying witli such Institutions for faculty. "People sec
us us an attractive place to come,
and if wc have positions available,
it'll remain that w a y . "

Study finds student drug use leveling off
(CPS) Studenl drug use seems to
have declined over Ihc last year, according to two recent studies,
"Since 1979 there's been u leveling o f f of Ihc use of 111,11 l|ll.in.I
among young people," reported
ciuyle Saunders, a spokeswoman
for the National Institute on Drug
Abuse ( N I I ) A ) , which sponsored tt
Qcorgc Washlnton
survey of some MUX) households'
drug habits,
There's also been u "significant
decline" in Ihc use of oilier drugs,
which N I D A rends us " u reversal of
curlier trends of escalating drug
abuse," Saunders added,
Similarly, the University of
Michigan's annual survey of some
17,(XX) high school seniors found
declines ill llle uses of marijuana,
cocaine, stimulants, sedatives, tranquilizers and hallucinogens,
" A serious recession," observed
Dr. Lloyd Johnston, direlor of the
Michigan study, "has Its own
sobering influence on y o u t h . "
Six out of every 10 seniors have
tried marijuana, the survey found,
but only 29 percent used it frequently in 1982. In 1979, when the
downward trend in daily marijuana
use began, 37 percent of Ihc seniors
claimed lo smoke marijuana daily.
" I t is Important to put the good
news in perspective," Johnston
wroie in a statement accompanying
the study's release.
" W h i l e it's true that there has
been u decline or leveling for virtually all types of used drugs, it is
still the cuse ihat an exceptional
number o f American young people
are involved lo some degree in illicit
drug use," lie snid.
" B y Ihc time they finish high
school, nearly two-thirds of our
young people have iried an illicit
drug and over one-third have Iried
an i l l i c i t
drug other
Johnston attributed the decline in
the use of amphetamines, which
ranked behind only marijuana and
alcohol us the most used drugs, lo

25-year-olds, fewer people arc
drinking and smoking regularly. In
1979, 76 percent of the "young
a d u l t " population drank alcohol,
versus 68 percent in 1982.
Thirty-clghl percent of the young
adults now smoke, compared lo 43
percent in 1979.
Among high school seniors,
Johnston discovered
evidence thai iherc actually may be
some very gradual dimiulion in
alcohol use." Besides the economy,
Johnston attributed most o f the
declines lo greater health concerns,
to more effective nnll-drug abuse
programs and thai " w e are past certain generations."

"show that Ihc SUNY incidence of
vandalism is about half of that ihc
national average and slightly half

" A very distorted picture" is
what someone would see of llie vandalism problem," Wharton continued. " I f they did not understand
thai some of llie high unci low
figures ihc commission used. Wharton said thai the high figures included " a l l damage resulting from all
causes," and that the low figures
were more reasonable, " I t is our

"The scores o f 'he games didn't

games in their record," pitching
coach Kevin Karwath explained.
" W e had only been outside for
three days before we went down to
Florida. The purpose o f the trip is
to give us some game practice. We
played everyone on the rosier in
every game and no pitcher went
more than three innings in a game."
Gartman, a co-captain along with

800-mclcr indoor stale champ, legged out
Danes Noel Woodburn and Winston
Johnson in Ihe close race for second. Van
Tassel came back lo break up a potential
R.P.I, sweep of the 400-melcr Intermediate
hurdles by taking second place in 59.1
seconds. Albany then swept the 200-meter
dash as Newton took his second win covering
the distance in a very fast 22.5 seconds. Sachs
took another second and sophmore John
Rcilly look third. More poinls came in the
5,000-meler run where Danes Ed McGill and
Ian Clements look second and third respectively. The last event of the day was the 4 x

The track rivalry between Albany and
neighbor R.P.I, is a very fierce one. Wednesday, on University field, the Albany Slate
men's track and field team won Ihe tenth
meeting of Ihe Iwo teams with a score of
101-71, evening Ihe slalc al 5-5. R.P.I, is an
improved team: the Engineers outseorcd
Albany at the Slate Championships, ycl Ihe
tremendous depth of the young Dane squad
prevailed in the hcad-to-hcad competition.
' Albany Head Coach Bob Munsey commented: "Our guys don'l like to lose, but
Ihey really get together when its R.P.I, on the
truck. Most of the learn really did their
homework over the vacation and it showed in
the way we heal them,"
It was an exciting season for the Danes.
The meet was marked by four track
records—three set by Albany—and a slew of
personal bests by Albany runners.
The first of Ihe best-ever efforts came In
the 10,000-mctcr run where Dane runners
Chris Callaci, Pete Wamslcker, and Steve
Guerds finished first, second and third
respectively. Callaei's winning time was
.14:14.2 followed by Wamstekcr at 34:22.2.
On the infield, captain Paul Mancc started
off his double win with a mark of 6.25 meters
in the long jump while teammate Bill Waring
leaped 6.19 meters for second place honors.
Later Mance won the triple jump and Waring
look third. Making the transition from the
35-pound weight to the hammer throw,
sophmore Marc Mcrcurio took second place
with a toss of 45.84 meters. Moving to his
specialty, the discus, Mcrcurio threw 43.04
meters to take first place as Dane Ken Yanneck look third. In the shot put, Bill Nason
threw a respectable 14.66 meters for first and
Cireg Dedes look second with a loss of I3.IK)
On Ihe Irack, R.P.I, won the 4 x 100 meter
relay after the leading Albany learn dropped
the baton. In Ihe 1,500-meler run, captain
Nick Sullivan was passed and boxed by three
Engineers, bul fought back to lake third in a
Ican-at-the-tape finish. Freshman Chuck
Bronner established a track record for the
3,000-metcr steeplechase when he won in a
time of 10:11.6. Later, freshman Bruce Van
Bruce Van Tassel broke the track record In the 110-meter high hurdles as Albany
defeated R.P.I., 101-71, to win their season opener.
Tassel broke the track record in the seconds. Sach's lime of 49.3 was a full second
110-meter high hurdles with his winning time faster lhan his previous best.Albany also
of 15.1 seconds. The 400-meter dash follow- went one-two in the 100-meter dash where
ed and another record fell as captain Eric sophmores Mike Riggins and Pal Saccacio
ran 10.87 and 11.1 seconds respectively.
Newion broke his own track record. Spurred
by the personal effort of senior Scott Sachs, Junior Rcj Jamerson won Ihe pole vault with
impressive jump of 14'0" while teammate
Newion flew through the line in 48.9
Those who run Irack can tell you that indoor and outdoor track are two lolally different sports. Likewise, Ihe outdoor season is
a fresh start for both Ihose that ran indoors
and Ihe new walk-ons. It's much more difficult to run on the smaller indoor tracks
because the tighlcr turns and short straights
make it difficult lo pass opponents, This
hurts taller or inexperienced runners. Outdoors the young Albany squad should perform belter and big-stride runners like
Newion and Sullivan can run unhindered.
t h e 1983 outdoor season promises lo be a
good one if ihe R.P.I, meet is any Indication
of Ihe Danes' ability. In Ihe field events, the
Danes have talent and depth. Mcrcurio, a
shoe-in for the Nationals in the discus,
should go undefeated through Ihe dual
meets. Captain Paul Mance has scored first
or second in Ihe jumps all year and has the
potential lo be a Nationals qualifier in the triple jump. A new face is Jim Anderson who
should score big poinls In the javelin.
In the sprints, the Danes should dominate
their competition. The sprint squad is still
missing the services of senior Mitch Havard,
who should return next week. Harvard is
quite possibly the best dash man for New
York Division III schools and the strength of
his return will be key to Albany's scoring in
Presidential candidate violates election policies
By Heidi Gralla
SA Prcsidcnlial candidate Joe Ranni has
not fully complied wilh a ruling handed
down by the SA Supreme Courl, ordering
him to lake down illegal posters and deliver
them with the master copy to the SA office,
A hearing was scheduled for 11:30 a.m. to
day, according lo Supreme Court Chief
Justice Sieve I'errin.
Ranni was charged wilh hanging campaign
posters not printed al one of the three locations outlined in elections policy and posting
his campaign posters in illegal places. The
plaintiffs in the hearing, Waller and Anthony
Nasiri — both former Central Council
members, also argued thai since Ranni had
an unknown number of poslcrs primed al an
unknown place, it is possible thai he further
violated election policy by exceeding the
1,500 limit on posters permitted an SA
presidential candidate.
The decision, handed down by Pcrrin and
Associate Justices Steven Ahcarn and Ken
Cilassnian, ruled that all of the illegal posters
be laken down and returned with the master
copy and all remaining copies to Ihe SA office by 4 p.m. Monday.
Additionally, Ranni may not print any
more poslcrs of this design and all posters not
affected by this ruling must be posted only on
bulleten boards and other locations authorized in the SA election policy.
According lo Ranni, I'errin contends that
he saw four illegal posters on a bulletin board
outside the Campus Center after 4 p.m.
Ranni maintained thai he did not miss any
posters outside the Campus Center qnd thai
any posters Pcrrin may have found were
cither pul up by someone after Ranni checked those bulletin boards, or were uncovered
when posters above litem were removed.
Ranni admitted thai he had hung 400
posters that were not primed al University
Rapid Copy, Ihe Diaper copying center, or
ihe SA Contact Office -— the only three locations designated in the elections policy.
Plain Director Dennis Stevens Thursday, he
had removed all posters that were in violation. Walter conlcndcd that one of Ihe pictures of an Illegally posted poster thai she had
submitted as evidence had been laken Sunday
Elections Commissioner Ken Olscn was
called as a wilness by both sides. He said he
had "considcrcd"chccking Ihe three copying
locations for Ranni's receipts, but "deemed
it unnecessary."
"I would not disqualify Joe Ranni ill the
<M case of no receipts," he added.
Waller substantiated her charge wilh
photos of illegally posted poslcrs and
memorandums from Ihe three illegally posted
posters and memorabilia, from the three
authorized copying locutions staling thai
ptior to April 4, there were no receipts on file
for Ranni. She concluded her case saying,
"Joe Ranni is in obvious violation of
•policy...for Ihe courl lo come out and say
ihai his is okay would just be a mockery of
SA policy."
Ranni charged that policy was used
"rather flippantly to fit a certain case,"
citing errors in the plaintiff's filing of
charges, and questioning if they (the plaintiffs) were involved in anyone's campaign.
Council' "C"II seems they weni lo a whole loi of irouble
as 'concerned students,' " he said.
Waller explained dial as a former Council
member, she was aware of policies thai had
been violated. She declined comment on
whether or nol she was affiliated wilh
another candidate's campaign, saying,"!

Governor Mario M. Cuomo yesterday
denied the existence of a formula which
would scl Ihe tuition scale for the Stale
University, a formula which would lead to
$250 tuition increases each of Ihe next four
years, according to Assemblyman Mark A.
"1 have no formula. There is no formula,"
Cuomo said in discussing his first one hundred days in office yesterday.
"There may have been that language in the
budget message — I really don'l know. There
is no formula for fixing tuition. What I'd like
lo see happen is for tuition al ihe Slate
University to slay as low as possible,"
Cuomo staled.
Sicgcl, Chairman of the Assembly higher
education committee, said earlier (his year
Governor Marlo M. Cuomo
"There is no formula for fixing tuition, . . like to see it stay. . . .as low as possible.
that Cuomo's bitgct formula for SUNY and
CUNY tuilion would raise college costs $250
for four years straight.
Mentioning the slate commitment to
educate "our children" without charging
them tuition, undertaken 100 years ago,
Cuomo said thai to meet that obligation today, "you really should be giving them a free
education right through to Ihe college level.
So, we've fallen behind in our commitment."
Bul the governor quickly added lhal "we
live ill a hard world, a realistic world," and
lhal wilh many costly social services that
have lo be provided for, compromise musl be
And SUNY must also compromise, but
Cuomo said he favors giving SUNY "more
command over their own money. Bul," he
cautioned, "I'm going to watch them very
closely because sometimes it's easier lo lay
off buildings lhan your friends who are on
Ihe faculty."
Cuomo, sometimes called a 'card carrying
intellectual' by political observers, also addressed the growing need for more emphasis
on high tcchnology-orienlcd education,
"We need a balance of more technical
without losing u liberal arts orientation. We
;have too many lawyers and nol enough
engineers. Now lhal doesn't mean you
.should close down all the liberal aits schools.
You have lo keep the balance,"
But Cuomo did nol agree wilh a privale
school stance voiced earlier Ibis year, lhal
SUNY has no role in Ihe expansion of high
lech education. "I differ from the private
seclor, I believe in Ihe balance between the
private and nitblic seclor that we've main-
tained for so many years."
Cuomo said he believes that the slate's
future depends on high lech training, and "to
do it the way lite private seclor wanls," by
sending all high tech students lo privale
schools, "is lo give the private sector a
dominance over our future that I am uncomfortable wilh."
But stressing his belief in the need for high
lech, Cuomo, a Si. John's graduate, assured
those present thai he believes in a balance
between high tech and liberal arts. "I
graduated with 164 credits in all Ihe subjects
lhal didn't count," lie cracked, "but il will
always be a humanist's world."
To make this point, Cuomo ruminated,
"When you start writing things on a machine
and forgcl the sweet lyric, you have scl back
your society."
On Ihe question of student voting rights,
for which candidate Cuomo expressed his
desire, Governor Cuomo said that he was si ill
in favor of sludenis being allowed lo vole in
their college community. He was not sure
what his thus-far busy administration had
done for voting rights, but promised an
answer soon.
He did say, however, thai a change of ihe
stale constitution, which slates lhal a person
shall neither gairt nor lose voter eligibility due
lo where Ihey live while al school and which
muny believe allows any county election commissioner lo independently •discriminate
against sludenis, would not be "the best way,
the most practical way to do it. That's a long
range thing."
