Tennis team bounces back with two shutouts
By Marc Herman
Most good teams bounce back from heartbreaking
losses. The Albany State men's tennis team did more
than that; they made a full recovery.
After losing 6-3 to Amherst this past Tuesday, which
included three third-set tiebreaker defeats, the Danes
snapped back with a vengeance the next two days,
destroying Union on Wednesday, 9-0, and SUNY at
Oneonta yesterday, 9-0.
"1 guess you can say we bounced back well from the
Amherst defeat," said Coach Bob Lewis, "but we're
just that much belter than those teams. I wasn't too
What did surprise Lewis was the unfortunate way
the Danes went down to defeat against Amherst, u
club that defeated the Danes 5-1 last year.
Albany dropped all six of the singles matches, with
the first three spots going into third set tiebreakers.
"It was the kind of match that we definitely could
have won if we got some breaks," said Lewis, whose
team stands presently at 9-2. "We're just as good as
them, it's just they won the big points In the
tiebreakers. I seriously feel that if we played them 10
limes, we'd win 7 of them."
First singles Barry Lcvlne suffered the most heartbreaking loss as three match points in his favor went to
After the two split the first two sets, Lcvlne, who has
been trying to break out of a bad slump, went up 6-5 in
games with a 40-Lovc lead. Lcvinc was unable to put
his opponent Fred Shcpphard away. Shepphard turned
things around to lake the game and tic at 6-6. His
momentum carried him to a 8-6 tiebreaker win.

Third singles Fred Gabcr and no. 2 singles Dave
Ulrich also went down In third set tiebreakers.
In Gaber's match, he was able lo survive five match
points before he went down lo defeat.
"I just came up a bit short," said the senior captain.
"I played well in the first set but seemed lo lose some
confidence as the match progressed. It's really disappointing losing the way we did."
Whether Ihc Danes took out their disappointment
the next two days is unknown, but Ihey sure didn't
show signs of letting the tough loss affect them.
The 9-0 romp over Union was a meet that had been
rescheduled twice because of weather.
"Union hasn't been very competitive lately," said
Lewis. "We went in hoping to shut Ihem out and we

The learn will play their remaining meets on the road

"Colgate and Williams might be our toughest opponents of the spring," said the coach. "We will have

Cinema heads pocket $3,500 in film revenues
By Heidi Gralla
The Executive Board of University
Cinemas, comprised of six SUNYA students,
has been accused of stealing about $3,500 in
movie revenues, according lo SA officials
who say Ihey have enough information to
support legal action.
The members of Ihe U.C. Executive Board
have agreed to return the $3,500 by Friday,
May 13 at noon. If they do not, SA President
Rich Sclinffcr says Ihey could face prosecution.
The six students implicated are University
Cinemas President Bill Braddock, Treasurer
Michael Kroine, and Executive Board
members Rise Shaw, Cms Ribciro, Michael
Abncrl, and Jay I.uslgurlcn.
Rich Sclinffcr charged thai Ihe Executive
Board "has been fudging [he ticket
numbers" on the manager's sheet which the
group is required lo hand in after every
weekend. The manager's sheet is supposed to
reflect the numbers on Ihc first and last
tickets sold and Ihe group must turn in earnings that correlate to this number of tickets.
However, Schaffer said this is difficult lo
monitor because University Cinemas uses
more than one roll of tickets at one lime.
They had a "well organized" operation, said
Schaffer in reference lo the allegations
against Ihc Executive Board.
A member of the Executive Board explained, "It was a serious mistake and we realize
that. Retribution is being made and wc arc
working with SA lo avoid any recurrence of
this type of problem In the future."
SA Vlce-Presidenl Jeff Schneider said an
informant had brought Ihc matter to his attention while campaigning door to door last
election. He refused to reveal Ihe informant's
Schaffer added mat Ihey had checked oul
Ihc Informant and found thai this person was
acting only in Ihc interests of SA. "No personal intercsls were involved," Schaffer said.

Schaffer explained that SA docs nol want
to press charges. "It's kind of messy when
you think the SA here goes around prosecuting students," he said. "Wc don't want
students suing students," Schneider added.
SA Attorney Mark Mishlcr said any prosecution would have lo be led by New York
State. "I think (here's enough information lo
go lo a District Attorney and I think lhal the
Disiricl Attorney would charge people with
crimes," Mishlcr explained, mentioning
grand larceny as one possibility. Grand
larceny is any theft over $250.
"It's the students' money lhat is being
taken. SA has to react," Mishlcr explained,
adding lhal he feels the situation has been
"resolved fairly well."
Schneider contended thai Krome "was
handing out 'gifts' — envelopes to the Executive Board at the end of each month and
occasionally after a big show...upwards of
$30 in each envelope each time."
Schaffer noted lhal the board had justified
their actions by saying Ihey did a lol of work
for University Cinemas. "This is understandable, but doesn't give Ihem the right lo take
money," lie asserted.
Former SA Controller Dave Schncyman
said he'd looked into University Cinema's
books three or four limes bul never found
any substantial discrepancies.
Schaffer said he and SA Controller Adam
Barsky will be looking into ways of changing
the system so this can't happen again.
Four members of the Executive Board are
graduating this year. Abncri and Ribeiro
were expected to remain on the board for
another year. Schaffer said he will ask Ihem
lo step down.
Funds for the remainder of this year will be
handled under "careful" SA supervision,
Schaffer said.

There is no likelihood thai a nuclear conflict will break out in Europe, he explained,
but because of missiles situated in the area "a

19 serious conflicts or mistakes in the pasi

he cited the 1962 Cuban missile crises and Ihc
1973 Arab-Israeli War.

The Crimes Against Women Update is
available for anyone who attends ihe monthly meeting of the President's Task Force on
Women's Safety. According lo Chairperson
Pal McCord, "We gel 20 to 25 people in attendance, One-third to one-half are students,
80 percent of them are women."
The Task Force, which wus initialed four
years ago, is looking into several ways to
make the university safer for women. McCord explained, "we're working on putting
emergency phones on the downtown
campus," According 10 u report by John
Hcnlghan, Assistant Director of University
Police, the Task Force is responsible for increasing lighting on campus and centralizing
night classes In selected buildings. They were
also responsible for installing an emergency
telephone system on campus; commonly
referred to as the Blue Light System, If picked up, the phones ring directly lo the University Police.
Prendcrgasl explained that Emergency Red
phones were placed in ihe women's loeker
room, if picked up in the event of un
emergency Ihey will automatically ring to the
University Police.
Another publicized bul rarely used precautionary measure on campus is Ihe student
escort system. Prendcrgasl asserted that the
escort system which consists ^ work-study
students "is widely publicized in the ASP ut
the beginning of the year. We only gel about
u dozen culls over the weekend," udded Officer Gary Slyke.
The 15 to 20 work-study students wear
yellow jackets saying "Student Patrol" and
have Student Patrol ID cards with their pictures on it, und are equipped with walkietalkies with a direct line 10 University Police,
said Prendcrgasl. "They are screened before
they take the job," he added. There is one
Temule student on Ihe Student Patrol, added
Officer Slyke. They are available to escort
any female on campus who calls the escort
service between 8 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.
"We get about five calls a night,"
Prendergast commented, adding, "We've
never turned down a call." He explained that
any female who calls alter 11:30 will be picked up by a patrol cur.
Student patroller Bob Miller, assigned to
patrol the outside of the library from 9:30
p.m. until 10:50 said, "I've been here since
9:50 and not one single person has asked me
0 escort them."
SA Media Director l.ibby Posl urgued that
the escort system "is not publicized enough
and the escorts need 10 be screened and trained about violence against women. It's a continual thing, you can't put up u poster and
expect people to use the service right away,"
she said.
The escort service is rarely utilized, according to University Police and members of the
Student Patrol. Mark Muron, u student
patroller, explained, "A typical night no one
calls, an unusual night is when one (person)
.-alls." He added, "sometimes people call for
m eseorl and then don't show." Miller
noted, "Women don't trust us. We iry to
prevent an emergency bul we're only
escorts." Miller admitted, "We're definitely
not trained. But they (University Police)
can't refuse us because we're work-study."
He insisted, "We're not junior cops."
Several women have voiced dissatisfaction
with the escort service and have repeatedly
refused to call for an escort.
Feminist Alliance member Alexandra
Carter maintained, "I'm not really happy
wilh Ihe escort service now, I don't think the
escort service is the right place for worksludy students," she said, adding, "I don't
think they understand why they arc needed. I
hink you need people who are u little more
motivated — not just doing it for the
money," asserted Carter. "I can't blame
them for not using the escort service. I don't
think it's tailored to our needs."
After the rape which occured near the Fine
Arts building between 10:15 and 10:30 p.m.
on April 14, two student patrollers were placed outside the library in hope that women
leaving f,he library would ask for an escort.
One woman leaving the library alone said, "I
would prefer to call a friend of mine. 1'

at topographical maps t o pinpoint
the sites o f highest elevation. He
then surveys the land from a
helicopter, looking for unforestcd
hilltops, since trees obstruct and
thus slow windspecd. Consequently
Bailey installs instruments to
measure wind velocity and direction. After examining the data,
Bailey can make a recommendation
of the best sites.
But arc windmills worth the lime
and money? According lo Bailey,
" W i n d systems are well-worth the
cost, since they arc economical in
the long run and produce clean
energy. In areas where utility costs
arc high and wind speed is fast,
such as in Long Island, windmills
are a good investment,"
The New York Stale Wind Energy Handbook, written by Bailey
and published by the State Energy
Office, is a comprehensive consumer's guide lo choosing, buying
and operating smaller-sized, electricity generating windmills. Before
buying a windmill, detailed Information must be collected on the
speed of wind that passes through
the proposed site, Bailey said,
preferably for one year. " T o purchase a windmill, it will cost
$ 15,000 or more, so money is essent i a l , " Bailey said. "Especially since
this doesn't include maintenance or
the costs o f gathering information.
Harnessing " f r e e " wind is expensive, although tax incentives are offered by the government to offset
the high costs and induce people to
invest in the energy saving windm i l l s , " he explained.
ambitious plans, Bailey said, 10 to
20 percent o f these states' energy
could be produced by windmills by
the year 2000. A n d , wind systems,
Bailey added, produce energy at
half the cost o f nuclear plants.
In addition, wind power is a clean
form of energy which has minimal
effects on the environment, with no
residual air pollution, acid rain, and
:arbon dioxide buildup. Bailey, in
fact, said he feels that the building
of nuclear power plants should stop
until they have resolved the problem o f how to store nuclear waste.
" W i n d systems are not the only
energy source," he concluded. " I t ' s
one of many. Realistically, by the
year 2000, 5 percent of this
country's energy could be produced
by wind systems," he said, lessening this country's ovcrdependcncc
on conventional fossil fuels.
. •
" A t the present lime, mainly individuals who want to reduce their
utility bills buy windmills, although
some consumers buy them for
philosophical reasons." But, Bally
said, " w i t h i n the next five to ten
years I feel that this will change and
wind farms will become more common as an alternate source of
Bailey also pointed out that in the
future utility costs will be rising as
wind systems decrease In price. He
pointed to the states o f California
and Hawaii, which have set up wind
farms in which a cluster of giant
windmills arc concentrated together

Trying to "harness the w i n d " is
not thought to be the most practical
endeavor. Bruce Bailey agrees in
some circumstances, but to the
SUNY researcher, harnessing the
power in wind is serious science.
Bailey, who has been with
SUNYA's Atmospheric Sciences
Research Center since late 1974,
first began research on solar energy,
only to later find himself concentrating on a different resource —
the wind systems which coincided
with his solar research.
Over the course o f seven years,
Bailey has become a pioneer in a
field in which there has been little
But there is interest.

Many students share gaining
practical career experience while
receiving credit, by extending their
education outside the classrooms
through various internship programs offered by S U N Y A .
One of the most popular programs available is an internship at
the state legislature where students
Jeff Greener, a junior who interned for Assemblyman Fred
Parola (Rep-14), explained that his
j o b entailed writing bill memos and
collecting legislation to be passed.
" I n a sense," said Greener, " I
helped put together potential laws.
The work I did was read by every
assemblyman. It wasn't just busy
w o r k , " he claimed. " I was really a
part of the process and my work
meant something."
While working at the legislature,
Greener said that "experienced,
ascmblymcn, who have full lime
careers came to me for advice on
b i l l s . " He said he questioned his
status, wondering " w h o am I ? "
that these people would seek advice
from an intern. " B u t , " Greener added, "they really took my advice
and it made me feel important."
By getting students out of the
classroom, the programs allow
them to gain knowledge by doing
what they so far have only learned
in class. " A f t e r a zillion political
icicncc courses, it was nice lo experience politics first h a n d , " said
Steven Gossct, a senior who Interned
Assemblywoman Gcrdi Llpschulz
(Dcm.-23). Cosset did consiiiucnl
case w o r k , m e m o
legislative research and clerical
work. This semester lie worked as n
newswriter for United Press Inlcrnalionnl in the capital district in
another internship program.
Gosset's only complaints aboul
the internship at the Assembly were
that "sometimes there was too
much busywork and al limes I
gel a l o n g w i t h my
supervisor." However, he said the
knowledge o f politics from the
legislative experience he gained
helped him with his internship at
U P I . A n d Gossct added thai his internship at U P I gave him valuable
experience in the field of journalism. What he really enjoyed
about il was "getting my stories in
papers. That's special," he said.
Some students, however, do not
receive credit directly for their inlernships. Roberta Goldberg, a
junior, worked five hours per week
all year for student legal service attorney Mark Misher, as a requiremenl for a class. She screened pco.13*-

Wagoner Dances At The Egg
an W a g o n e r and Dancers
brought their1 unique sense of Irreverent humor to Albany Friday
' night with their performance at the Egg.
The company, consisting of six dancers
J and Wagoner himself, presented "Oljlbwa
Ango" a ballet In two parts, and "Spiked
Sonata," a wonderfully funny parody of
the dances of the thirties. After seeing this
performance It Is clear why Wagoner and
company have achieved such critical acclaim since their first performance at the
Judson Memorial Church In New York City In 1969.
Megan Gray Taylor.
Wagoner Is an Interesting product of
West Virginia hillbilly, four year degree in
pharmcology, the army, and a long list of
some of the most notable names In
American modern dance history. He
received a scholarship to the Martha
Grahme school and eventually joined her
company In 1958. He has also danced
with Merce Cunningham and Paul Taylor's
company. All these Influences have combined, and the choreography that has
emerged as Wagoner's has the mark of the
best of his teachers. The dances are marked by a juxtaposition of classical line and
style (a la Grahme) and a bent-foot comedic style more reminiscent of Cunningham and more recently Twyla Tharp.
Otljibwa Ango (Oljlbwa meaning Chippewa, Ojlbway and Ango meaning desolation, loss) Is a serious work set mostly to
music from the early twentieth century by
American composer Charles Tomllnson
Grlffes, but including also a Mohawk song.
The title refers to a group of Native
Americans, the Ojlbwas described as
"vanishing." In a series of dances, different
views of the Indian nature are examined,
from the myths and oneness with nature,
to the ultimate desolutlon and destruction
of their "Eden." In the pas de deux sequences there was the distinct Influence of
Agnes De Mllle, the kind of choreography
she created In "Pillar of Fire" and in some
sense the Inward turning of Fredrlc
Ashton's "Rights of Spring." These
beautifully classic movements were set
against the almost discordant, sometimes
humorous choreography of the moder-
nists, especially Paul Taylor and Tharp.
Unlike many modern dance companies:
who eliminate set and costume, Wagoner, j
with the help of set and costume designer I
•lames Welty has made them an Integral
part of the success ol this plece.The beauty
of the hand embroidered Indian costumes
In Part Two and the Impressionistic set
which folds up and becomes a parallel
symbol of the destruction and disappearance of the tribe Is very effective.
Modern dance is often accussed of not tellIng a story, of being a sequence ol
unrelated movements or a simple study of
anatomy. This accusation could never be
leveled at this company.
The concluding piece of the evening,
"Spiked Sonata," also utilizes the costuming genius of Welty and the lighting of
multiple award-winning Jennifer Tipton to
create a wonderful, upbeat, often hilarious
recreation of the formality of dance In the
1930's. Utilizing recordings of actual radio
music of the 30's (Including the Immortal
Spike Jones himself), the company form
Conga lines, tango, samba and even the
bunny hop. This Is an excellent example of
an American choreographer drawing on
American roots and creating really relevant
dance works that In this case were exceptionally entertaining.
Wagoner's dancers Include Kristin
Draudt (who holds an MA In dance from
Ohio State and has performed with Tharp
and Douglas Norwlck), Dennis Flemmlng
(hailing from Kansas City who has performed with Martha Renzl among others
and has had exstenslve classical training),
Joann Fregalette-Jansen (who holds an
MS In dance from Smith College and has
been with Wagoner since 1976), Edward
Henry (who holds an MA In Business and
has choreographed and taught In
numerous places throughout the US).
Diane Schel (who holds a BFA from the
University of Utah and has been with
Wagoner since 1977), and Lisa Taylor
(who attended the University of Michigan
and danced with several companies before
joining Wagoner In 1980). This diverse
group has come together In syncopation
and sensitivity, giving this company a unique look. It Is a look I would recommend
to anyone, anytime.
' 'm suprlsed that one who Is so
warm a friend can be so cool a
lover," says Hastings In the classic
Goldsmith comedy, She Stoops To Conquer, and thus the play unlolds. Performed
In the PAC last week and directed by Peter
Bennet, this statement typifies the plot
wherein the theme of mistaken identity and
deceptive personalities are once again In
the spotlight. A ha, you say, another

To Conquer is primarily a period piece,
and somewhat predictable. It wasn't boring at all. The performances were generally
good, the set design and costumes were
exceptional, and the play itself was very
When speaking about She Stoops To
Conquer one must begin by pointing out
that Goldsmith, like Sheridan, (The Rluals)
decried the tradition of the "sentimental"
comedy, the comedle lannoyant In which
lears flowed and laughter langulshedparodying Dr. Johnson's declaration concerning the serious drama of the 18th century In which "declamation roared while
passion slept." And passion certainly
doesn't sleep here. The story revolves
around Kate Hnrdcastle's pretended descent into Ihe life of a barmaid In order to
capture the man she desires, Marlow, a
man who Is excessively shy around women
of Ihe upper class. It seems old Marlow can
only relate lo women of a lower class than
he. Well, Ihere is a lot of deceptiveness
careening around, but, alas, before the
play 's end. Marlow succumbs to the adoring Kate, even when he finds out who she
,u luallu is.
The role of Kate was superbly performed
by TerrI VandenBosch, VandenBosch,
who recently received her equity card in

Bill Aiken
Brian Reilly. one of the four owners of
the Chateau said he first became interested
in the bar when he saw an ad In the
business classified section. "None of us had
any experience in the bar business. We
didn't have any specific kind of business In
mind. We just saw the ad and checked it
out." This was at a time when a lot of bars
in downtown Albany were packing II up.
But Reilly was still optimistic about the
potential of the Chateau. "The place looked like a dump, but I noticed that goodsized crowds were coming out when bands
were playing there."
Since three of the four owners are
auditors for the State, they can apply their
job experience to various aspects of the bar
business, Fred Perlmutter keeps the J?ooks.
He's also a C.P.A.. Ron Shantze does the
bookings of the bands. His wife. Sue
Shelter handles the advertising, while Reilly helps out where ever he's needed most,
the bar. This organizational structure took
form two months after they had bought the
Chateau. "At first," recalls Shetler, "all of
us were doing everything, from tending bar
to waitresslng. But we couldn't keep going
like that, I didn't want to work In the bar." r1
Shelter adds. "Advertising lets me get away
and work on the outside."
Ron Shantze has worked his way up lo
booking bands on the national level. "I got
into booking bands" says Shantze.
"because I like dealing with musicians.
When I first got into booking 1 knew
nothing about it." he adds, "I got a list of
the local bands from Lark Beat (a record
store) and that's how 1 got started." Now
the Chateau is working with Cougar Music,
a booking agency that supplies Shantze
with a selection of 15 bands per week thai
are available in the area.
When it comes to choosing one of these
bands for the Chateau, Shantze talks the
Idea around before booking a gig. "A lot of
available groups that may draw well in Buffalo or Syracuse, I just know would not
draw In Albany" states Shantze. "Ron and I
work a lot together" chimes In Shetler, "so
the booking and advertising go hand In
hand." she elaborates. "There have been
so many shows that we thought were going
lo do well and '10 people show up."
This lack of support stops the Chateau
from bringing in bigger acts. "[ was offered
Garland Jellerys for $1750.00" said
Shantze. "now Garland Jelferys usually
gels $3500-$4.000.00 and for us to break
oven at the door, we'd have to charge
$6.50 a ticket. I don't Ihlnk people would
pay thai much at the Chateau."
Working in your own business can bo
stresslul especially when you share that
business with three other people "Our
friends said that all of us would end up
hating each other," recalls Reilly, "but wclalk things out with ourselves, and while we
may argue, we're still in the business and
wore still friends."

the costumes. Set designer Robert Donnel-^
ly successfully typifies the 18th century,
code of archetechture and decor, but In- 1 ;
genlously designs a stage that revolves Into
three different sets, the living room where
most of the play takes place (which Includes a chandelier and a harpsichord), a
bar (with wonderful brick walls), and a
garden (complete with grass, trees, statues,
and drawing room type doors that lead Into
the llvlngroom). It truly Is exquisite. Donnelly's theatrical associations have been
vast and It Is easy to see why. The
costumes designed by Amy Coplow are Intricate copy's of the familiar dress of the
time. The wigs were specially styled by
Peggy Schlerholz, and add a vintage flavor
o the production.
She Sloops To Conquer Is certainly not
a return of the Restoration drama; neither
is It particularly reminiscent ol the ensuing
sentimental comedies. Rather it is an
agreeable blending o l farce, satiric comedy
of manners, and sentimental comedy. In Its
theme of mistaken Identity, It is basically

uproarious farce of a comedy of manners.

language and the character-ln-love-type

with cunning success. There Is no sex InIrigue ol a cynical sort, or irregular
characters. Even Marlow's interest In ladles

anseparc, the latest release by
Martha and the Muffins, shows a
glimmer of potential that unfortunalely Is never built upon. The band Is
.ead by Martha Johnson, who sings in a
nasalized, Mae West Influenced voice.
She also contributes some guitar,
keyboards and percussion lo the record.
Mark Ganes does basically the same things
as Martha, only giving us less vocals and
more guitar. Nick Kent, the drummer,
delivers an interesting anay of rhythms
which is the most interesting part of the
band's sound. The fourth band member,
Jocelyne Lanois, can be heard on bass.
The combined talents of this quartet creates
an interesting but ultimately bland sound.
Claudia Besen
All of Ihe songs share the good
characteristics ol catchy beginnings, good
synthesizer, and good sax work, but the
negative features, such as very repetitive
and long songs, lend lo overshadow the
good ones,
The best cuts on the album Include
"Danseparc" - Ihe title track, "Obedience',
and "Several Styles of Blonde Girls Dancing". "Danseparc" (Ihe first cut on side
one) contains catchy guitar riffs, strong bass
lines and an Infectious melody. One of the
high points of this song Is its catchy sax,
played by Ron Allen. Immediately following comes "Obedience" which has a
derivative syncopated funk sound. This is a
driving, bouncy song, featuring breathy
vocals by Martha, and Interesting backup
, vocals. The number also features well executed guitar riffs, plus some Interesting synthesizer work that Is very reminiscent of the
Talking Heads. This Is quite understandable, since both Martha and the Muffins
and The Talking Heads site Roxy Music as
one of their major influences. Leading off
the second side Is "Several Styles of
Blonde Girls Dancing", an Intriguing title
for an Intriguing song. It features both Mar-
tha and Mark doing vocals similar to those
of the Au Pairs. This is a dreamy and Illogical song featuring cute Rain Forest
Pygmy chants. The pygmy chants are one
of the best parts of the album because they
were so downright adorable. Although this
song Is slightly long, it is saved by good
synthesizer work and a very uplifting beat.
The rest of this album tends lo flow
together Into one big, monotonous song.
"World Without Borders" contains decent
sax work by Ron Allen, but the rest ol the
song drags, lacking excitement. "Walking
Into Walls" sounds like "World Without
Borders" minus the sax, and plus Interesting X l l k e vocals. "Sins of Children" Is
their supposedly "controversial" song
about being brought up Catholic. I see no
controversy there, being that millions of
people have been brought up in this
respect, and the subject has been dealt with
similarly before. Musically, the piece
sounds like Roxy Music's latest studio
release Aualon, but,unfortunately it drags,
In spite of its pretty melody. The song
sounds best when Martha isn't singing,
because, try as she may, she's not Bryan
"Boys in the Bushes" contains jaunty
vocals and interesting guitar work, yet It still
comes across as very boring. On another
note, "What People Do For Fun" Is a song
about the odd ways In which people amuse
themselves. It has a very good beginning
and satyrlc lyrics lhat work well, but boring
vocals and monotonous instrumentals mar
this selection. The last piece on the album
Is perhaps the worst. "Whatever Happened
:o Radio Valve Road?" is a long, drawn
out, very mellow, Pink Floydesque instrumental that fails miserably.
Though they are successful In the U.K.,
on the continent, and In their homeland of
Canada, whether they will achieve this success in the United States is debatable. According to Mark Gane, however, the trappings of pop stardom leave them unimpressed, "Sure," says Mark, "we want to put out
Martha & The Muffins frolic In Danseparc
records that people will love, but fame isn't
important. What counts for us is to deliver
without compromise the kind of sounds we
believe i n . " That they have done In their
seemingly harmless album Danseparc.
The group contains musical talent, but
they lack direction. Their music is mainly a
bunch of guitar riffs that are seemingly Interesting at the beginning but become
monotonous with their constant up-the-
scale-down-the-scale routine. Unfortunately the bass lines follow suit. I feel they'd be
better off writing music for television
Martha and the Muffins could be a very
arousing band, being that all the members
are talented. However, after four attempts
at a truly successful album, It should have
oeen evident to them that there was
something missing • excitement.
Smell the flowers
he tulips arc still growing in Washington Park. The
" the P a r k " became a reality and a success
this past Sunday, and no student uprising occurred.
Indeed the City o f Albany will still have Its annual tulip
City officials knew that O C A and SA had been In the
process of putting this party together since the beginning of
February. Not until the last minute did the city attempt to
deny S U N Y A students o f their constitutional rights. The
driving force behind this attempt will most likely be
Albany's next mayor. The question is why would a politician attempt to alienate a visible, viable bloc of his voting
Both Rich Schaffcr and Mark Mishlcr should be commended for not acceding to the intimidation tactics used by
city officials. They knew what was light and they fought
for it. SA and OCA were trying to improve relations between students and the community by having an event in
which both groups could interact and have a good time.
From their actions it seems that city officials would like to
keep students and the community separate. They want the
status quo maintained — a type o f restriction which
prevents progress.
SA handled the dispute in a mature and professional
manner — a fact the city overlooked. It took a U.S. District
court to assure that the event would go ahead as scheduled.
It seemed the city believed that it would have a bunch o f
rowdy, drunken students on its hands, who would indiscriminantly leave piles o f garbage in their wake. It seems
strange that city officials felt that way since these problems
have never been encountered In .past years. The city also
feared that townspeople would not feci welcome In their
own park. What the city got, however, was an organized
and spirited party. A party, according to Schaffcr, where
over one-third o f the 900 who attended were local Albany
The city's attempts to cancel the party raised some questions about officials' attitude toward students. This is the
same town which allowed the Republic of South Africa

Another insult to the students was the city's disregard for

Court rooms and spring time parties do not mix. li
seems ashame that the students o f Albany Slate had lo go
to court to have a peaceful celebration which was designed
not only to benefit ourselves but other community members
as well. City officials involved showed themselves lo be
paranoid. However, a well behaved crowd proved thai their

We hope In the future that more trust is accorded lo Hie

Truths about the arms race
'osi of Reagun's war talk is easy to expose. His
satellite photos of " a new airport in Grenada for in
tcrconlincnlnl bombers to land o n " — a scure lactic
if ever there was one — was handily ridiculed the next day
in Newsday, with pictures that their own reporters had
taken standing on the supposedly "secret" runway Itself.
Far from being the secrete project Reagan lied about, the
Genadans were proud of (lie work they were doing. They
even posed proudly for photographs, next to a sign that
said forlhrighlly: "Soon to be a new International
A i r p o r t " . They pointed out that a number of US corpori
tions had been contracted to build It.
[Mitchel Cohen
Yet, it seems that if a lie is repealed enough times, at least
some o f it rubs o f f on peoples' minds. This is the situation
with the lie about Russian "interference" in Latin and Central America, which is used as a pretext for the very real
(and very deadly) US military and economic aid t o the
right-wing butchers running El Salvador today, and to the
facist Nicaraguan ex-patriate members of the hated National Guard, loyal to the dead dictator, Somoza. In a recent expose, UPI issued photos of soldiers in Honduras
opening crates o f US weapons that, by law, were not allowed to be sent there, which arc being used in the current
assault against the popular Sandinista government of
It is a tribute to the democratic aspirations o f the
American people that our government feels it has lo lie to
us in order to protect corporate interests abroad. But it is a
sad commentary on our historical acuity that we allow even
a small portion of the lie to sink in. The " R e d Menace" is
perhaps one of the longest sustained lies in American
history — and this is coming from a Marxist activist who
wishes it were truel — and is used to whip up patriotic fervor in defense o f corporate profits sold to us as " t h e national interest".
will provide a first-strike capability the Soviets can't
duplicate — unless they move l o install missiles in Central
America! This is the basis o f the Soviet proposal, which
says: Instead o f Reagan's bogus zero-option, let's make
Europe completely free o f nukes! The Soviet Union wants
all missiles, including those o f France and England, included in any negotiated withdrawals. The US's proposal is for
the Soviet Union to remove ull ils SS-20's in exchange for
not deploying the Pershing II's and cruise missiles, which
pointed at a Soviet Union now bereft of defense. The US
refuses to include its N A T O allies in the missile count. ( I f
the French Communist Party ever won the majority in
Parliament, watch how fast France would then be included
by the US in the missile count — on the Soviet side.)
3) Reagan's claim lhat the USSR is threatening the US in
Central America is completely false. The military confllcl in
El Salvador is the result o f popular rebellion against an oppressive military dictatorship propped up by the US, not
the Soviet Union. As Dave Dcllinger put it, " I f the Soviet
Union flew over Bangor, Maine and dropped some
machine guns, would that make the people there rise up in
revolution?" Unfortunately, no. Massive oppression is
causing people to revolt in El Salvador, not the existence o f
Yet, even defen -ve weapons from Russia hardly exist in
El Salvador. Virtually all o f the arms used by the guerrillas,
as shown many limes i n the straight press, arc obtained on
the black market, in Europe, and by winning them in battle. Contrast that to the arms received by (he right-wing National Guardsmen, who are raiding Nicaragua from across
the Honduran border, who arc trained in camps in Florida
and in the Carolinas, who have US military advisers coordinating their actions, and you get a clearer picture about
who is supplying whom with what. T o try to portray events
in Central America as a battle between the superpowers not
only is false and misses the whole point, bul In so doing, ii
leads l o incorrect strategies for fighting against us Intervention there.
A group within the C I A itself lust year released an extremely well-documented white paper, detailing llic extent
o f US involvement and refuting, point by point, llic
government's claims about Soviet Involvement. Soviet aircraft, for instance, those " n e w and insidious weapons"
ballyhooed by Reagan in his speech, have been In < uba for
more than 20 years, hardly new, hardly offensive, hardly
weapons. The military systems revealed by Reagan from his
ridiculous satellite photos — supposedly slimline revelations against Nicaragua designed to get us to shudder in out
boots and rationalize Reagan's illegal arms shipments lo the
fascists are solely defensive in nature and pose no threat lo
neighboring countries whatsoever. Compare that, again,
with Ihe equipment received by the blood-ihirsly junta in hi
Salvador from the US.
4) The President's claim lhat lire Freeze Is unverifiablo
has been refuted by many experts. A total freeze on Ihe
testing, production and deployment of nuclcai weapons
and their associated delivery systems would be easier lo
verify than traditional arms control agreements of a more
limited nature, since almost any activity could be assumed
to be an abrogation o f the treaty.
In spite of all the evidence, the reluctance of many
organizers to place the burden on the US — which would
necessarily entail investigating why the US is doing whnl it's
doing, and thus, what capitalism is all about-hlndcrs lire
development o f a successful anti-war movement, and
allows for liberals to keep the issues of El Salvador and llic
Freeze separale. It prevents us from doing what we
desperately need lo do, i f we are to get the US out of Ihe
war business, and begin the development o f a new, free
society here at home.
Community reactions to racism
he. " P a u l K r u g e r " letter o f A p r i l 26 criticizing
Japhct Zwana for championing the cause of the 25
million oppressed Blacks in South Africa and
Kruger's advocacy and support for racist South Africa as
spelt out by the government o f the 4'/z million whites cannot be left unanswered by me, a black South African who
has lived for 35 years under apartheid. The fallacy and
misinformation by this " S i r Galahad" and this " M r .
B u n k u m " adds insult to injury to all blacks here and at
home as he terms Zwana's ideas "typifies the negro attitude." I'll now show his ideas to typify racist, savage and
moronic mentality which is the stock-in-trade o f white
South A f r i c a .
First, about his fitting nom-dc plume name, Paul Kruger.
As a graduate major in British History o f South A f r i c a . I
know everything worth knowing about Paul Kruger. When
Kruger was President of the Transvaal Republic in South
Africa in 1899 and visited Queen Victoria of England, he
caught a cold. When he was invited to dinner by the Queen,
he did not even take o f f his heavy dirty military coat while
dining. T o compound his crude and animal behavior he
coughed, without using a handkerchief and spat on the
floor several times. When a bowl was placed beside him for
his relief, he said " t a k e away this Ihing for I'll spit on i t "
and continued to spit on the floor until the cmbarassed
guests and the Queen nil left him alone. He wus the founder
of the present Afrikaner thought in South Africa and 99.9
percent o f the Afrikanners o f South Africa arc still like
lhat, Shame on your compass to still have walking and living remnants o f Ihe Krugers in 1983! Your correspondent,
" P a u l Kruger" is decidedly u South African white racist
and his reply does not surprise me. I le speaks of the Soviel
Union and writes "American support for the sole civilized
anti-communist government in the region is the cornerstone
to checking Soviet aggression."
The foreign aggressors in South Africa arc Ihe 539
multinational American companies who earn billions o f
dollars Ihrough the blood, sweat and tears o f African cheap
labor, some of whom earn 35 cents an hour. These coinpanics pay millions o f dollars in taxes to the South African
government which daily slaughters African people
whenever they protest peacefully. The savages arc the
government of South Africa and those who aid and abet
them. The Soviel Union does not invest a cent in South
Africa. " K r u g e r " again spcuks o f defending "seven
strategic minerals o f South A f r i c a " and of the West to
" c o n t r o l Ihe southern Indian Ocean and South A t l a n t i c "
so as to have ready access to the riches of Soulh Africa. We
arc very much aware of the greed of both Ihe Soviel and the
West for the wealth o f strategic South Africa. Let these
greedy war mongers, U.S. and Soviel Union tight oul their
greed in their own lands. We are completely capable of taking care of ihe white thieves, robbers and murderers who
are white racist South African. Soulh Africa is OUR
L A N D and we are going to repossess it by whatever means
possible. We are positively neulral lo both East and West.
We arc African nationalists and arc positively pro-Africa
and pro " N e g r o . " Let the scum of the earth as represented
by racist South Africa and the Paul Krugers be known Tor

apartheid as " a crime against humanity." Just by
mathematical and political assessment you have a criminal
walking S U N Y A campus in the name of Paul Kruger.
What are these crimes by Ihe government o f Soulh
Africa? Briefly;

His ghost appeared on the S U N Y A campus in lire form
of a letter to editor of ASP which was published in the
Tuesday, A p r i l 26, 1983 issue authored by 'Paul Kruger.'
Its title was "Support Soulh A f r i c a . "
The letter purports to be u response lo Ihe editorial
published in Ihe ASP on Tuesday, A p r i l 19, 1983 entitled
"Symptoms of A p a r t h e i d " by Japhct M . Zwana.
The editorial clearly pointed out thai contrary to its propaganda claims, Ihe Soulh African regime is beginning to
feel the internal pressure brought about by Ihe mounting
resistance o f African/Colored/Asiatic freedom fighters,
The author of "Support Soulh A f r i c a " chose lo use Ihe
editorial as a take-off for his premeditated, preconceived
scouting and campaign for the oppressive regime o f South

whose only reference lo the present American administration was with regards lo its role in Ihe Namibia Independence talks.

1) Reagan claimed that the Soviets have made rapid advances in their military capability over the past several
years, while the US has stood idly by, and that this has produced a " w i n d o w o f vulnerability" for the US. This is
simply not true. The US has substantially upgraded each
leg o f the nuclear triad over the past decade, including installation o f highly accurate Mark 12A warheads on its
Minute Man I I I missiles, installation o f Trident I missiles
on existing submarines, the launching o f a new Trident submarine (with several more under construction), and modernization o f the B-52 bomber force. For Reagan to hi-litc
Soviet military advances without also talking about those
o f the US is to intentionally distort the picture. As the chart
shows, every single Soviet development o f nuclear weapons
has been in response to prior unilateral upgrading done by
the US. According to the US government's own statistics,
US and N A T O countries out-spent the Soviet Union and
Warsaw Pact countries on the military during the I970's by
at least $100 billion.
1) racism in South Africa is dejure i.e. legalized. The
1910 Constitution o f that country which is the cornerstone
o f apartheid states "There shall be no equality between
black and white, in church and in state."
2) in South Africa, one is cither hanged or sentenced to
life imprisonment for demanding equality between men.
3) a black man is jailed for up to a year for mere kissing a
white woman and he is either sentenced to a minimum o f
five (5) years or hanged for engaging in sexual intercourse
with a white woman.
4) three (3) weeks ago 16 Africans were killed in one mine
where safety conditions were minimal for human work;
when five (5) surviving African men refused to walk down
the mine lo their death Ihe following day, they were arrested and jailed. This is both forced and slave labor. What
sane and civilized human being can support this savagery,
banditry and brutal animal behaviour? Paul Kruger does.
Those whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad!
Kruger says "economically, black Africa owes everything
hal it has to Europe and Europcuns." What a myopic
icnse o f history! Europeans grabbed, raped and stole
whatever part o f Africa they once controlled. As thieves
they were and still are in South Africa. Elsewhere they were
not asked to leave, but were chased and forced out of
Africa by the forces o f African Revolution. Kruger spcakes
j f our standard of living In Soulh Africa as " f a r higher
ban anywhere else in A f r i c a . " Rubbish! Who wants lo live
as u comfortable slave? We wanl our land — period. We
want self determination. We do not need savages like
Kruger 10 assess the value o f our standards o f living. What
is he, in any case? l i e is probably one descendant of the
scum and bandits from Europe whom Africa fed and
sheltered from Ihe ghettos and slums of Europe. Let him
tell his slory to Ihe Marines!

The classically negative and racist mentality o f the writer
was clearly demonstrated by such references as negro altitude, Sub-Saharan Africa, negro rule, poorest countries,
no sign of democracy Insight, no food, no development, no
vole, inflation ravaged Nigeria, starving Chad, Cuban occupied Angola, Africans utterly incapable of modern
civiliied democratic government.
Apparently, a wierd sense o f unalloyed ethnic
righteousness on the part o f 'Paul Kruger' is deliberately
blinding his eyes to the fact that Europeans arc largely to
blame for turmoil in some parts of Africa. Their long
drawn colonial hegemony sewed and watered the seeds o f
political, social, and economic dcstabilization Ihrough
savage and exploitative adventures that replenished the cofTers of imperialist capitals.
This 'Paul Kruger' and other 'Krugers' like him would be
very well served by a course or two in African and A f r o American Studies.
The Black community is tired o f the constant insults
perpetrated by racists and irresponsible reports in the ASP.

A AS Faculty
he racisl article "Support South A f r i c a " and its
mud author purposely distorts the reality in Soulh
Africa. The author who is either a Dutch settler or a
Hitlerite deliberately blames communism as being the
reason for United Slulcs's economic and military backing
of Ihe criminal regime in South Africa, He elevates colonialism in Africa to Ihe position of enllghtmcnt and
civilization, and calls the mosl brulal regime in the world
(Soulh Africa) the only-civilized country In A f r i c a .
The fact o f the matter is ihui the long run interest o f the
U.S. in the region is threatened by the aggressive policies of
South Africa in and around Ihe country. South African
apartheid policies deny the African majority population
from basic human rights such as the right to be with your
family, travel in and outside Soulh A f r i c a ; the racist
government also deports indigenous population from fertile cultivable land lo the barren lands surrounding South
Africa, all this is done because these people happen to be
black. Because of these criminal policies humanity
lliroiiglioul Ihe world has denounced Soulh A f r i c a .
In the light o f the aggressive nature o f this unprecedently
inhumane regime and the current administration's implicit
support for South Africa, the Soviet Union's influence in
the region is increasing. Africans do not favor Ihe Soviet
Union for ils ideology but Ihey are forced lo rely on Ihe
Soviets for security reasons. The United Slates and Its
Western allies provide South Africa with the technology
and money il needs, to continue ils genocide on the local indigenous population. Surrounding African countries faced
with this destructive aggression have no other alternative
bul to seek Soviet and Cuban support. Therefore, it is apparent Ihe author of the article "Support South A f r i c a "
(April) was distorting Ihe fact that the danger threatening
vital U.S. interests in the region have been the llillerile
.lalure o f the regime in South Africa. In the long run the interest of the U.S. in litis area is 10 support the struggle of
the African people and suppressed groups in Soulh Africa.
The suppressed people in Soulh Africa have the whole
human race behind them. Bul above all their determination
for achieving the goals of decent life and unconditional
freedom will be fulfilled as il had been fulfilled in present
day free-Zimbabwe. Therefore, we urge the peace-loving
American people not to be misled by the very enemies of
humanity such as the author of last week's article "Support
Soulh A f r i c a . " And by supporting the just rights o f the indigenous majority population in South Africa you will be
sowing the seeds of friendship and mutual interest between
tile American and African peoples.
The author of the racisl article referred lo above praises
British colonialism for its so-called "civilizing mission" in
Africa, when we all know that European domination in
Africa is largely responsible for the unfuir economic positions Africa and Ihe less developing world faces today.
Contrary 10 litis ill-minded Dutch settler, European
policies in Africa were typically brutal, degrading lo the
African way of life. This decent style of life draws its civility from the ancient glories and civilizations o f A f r i c a ,
which for long was disregarded by (he Europeans for racist
reasons. European colonizers specially those who settled in
what is now South Africa were the then antisocial elements
in Europe. These settlers were professional thieves,
criminals of the first degree. Europe had to get rid o f them.
Where? They dumped litem in South Africa where they
looted and displaced the indigenous population. A n d now
we are being told thai these criminals constitute the "solecivilized n a t i o n " in the continent known for its ancient
civilizations, and housing peoples who embrace love and
respect for all humanity. Distortion o f facts about South
Africa such as in the notorious article "Support South
A f r i c a " will only further reveal the unmatched illegally
and brutality of the apartheid regime in South Africa.

niversity Foundation audited
and travel advances to candidates
for school dcanships. This is the second audit o f the foundation said
Welch, " b u t the last one in 1975
was nothing like t h i s . "
"Funds earmarked for certain
programs, originally, arc no longer
to the
foundation," said a spokesman for
the State Comptroller's office,
Marvin Nailor, He noled that funds
are being dispersed on " l o o b r o a d "
a criteria.
The purpose of the foundation Is
lo support the university, emphasized Welch. He noled thai privalt
donors, whether individuals or corporations, will designate where Ihcy
want the money l o go. "Some
designate funds for a narrow purpose, others have a broad designation. It depends on the terms," he
Welch added that Ihe comptroller's office was criticizing I he expenditure of about $4,(XX) over Iwo
years, when the foundation donates
about SI million a year. " I t is like
reaching into your pocket and fin-
ding three pennies," lie commented.
President o f the foundation's
Board of Directors Ncdwin Emerson said, " y o u have to keep in mind
that these are private monies. There
was nothing inappropriate with the
foundations expenditures."
Welch agreed, saying lhal there
arc different sets o f criteria for
public agencies and private nonprofit agencies. " T h e advantage of
Ihe foundation is that we get lo put
money where the state cannot," he
said. Welch explained that the Male
cannot pay the expenses for dean
candidates o n second visits,
whereas the foundation can on the
basis that " w e arc trying lo help Ihe
university achieve an extra distinction."
He emphasized lhal Ihe foundation's purpose is lo suppor 1 the
university. "The auditors look at
the foundation as an alien force,"
he added.
In a letter accompanying the
eport, Frank Francis, director o f
field audit in the comptroller's office, said, " W e question the ap-
propriateness o f expenditures f o r
Christmas parties, picnics and personal' He recommended
that the foundation make sure that
the fund accounts meet the intent o f
the fund donor, are not personal expenses, and arc charged to the appropriate account.
Nailor remarked that a contract
must be set up to "spell o u t " the
conditions, and criteria o f the
grants to make sure they arc not
"used for something else. The
education o f students is not being
served in parties and picnics," he
Welch noled that the report was
criticizing a "very small p a r t " o f

estimated that the foundation
handles about 1,200 expenditures a

The Albany State lacrosse team showed great character by coming Irom behind
to beat Buffalo State Saturday afternoon, 13-12.
and the Danes were being stymied by the
superb play of Buffalo State goalie Bob
Slate. "We had to start shooting well; he was
making great saves," said Casadontc
Albany made it 4-2 when Venicr put In a
beautiful over the shoulder goal, with an
assist from Casadontc. "That was a fast
break goal," commented Vcnicr. "Don just
fed it to me on the wing."
The teams traded goals and Ihc Danes
trailed 5-3 at the half. Rick Trizuno scored
Albany's third goal when he put a shot by
Slate on a pass from Joe Pallseno.
The third quarter was marred by both controversy and excitement. A tenacious Buffalo
State Icam made it 6-3 at the 45 second mark.
Kenny DaRoseut it to 6-4, putting a dribbler
by Slate at 5:38. But once again the defense
faltered, resulting in a 7-4 Bengal lead at
Back and forth the teams went, as
Ccrny tapped in a pass from Casadontc less
than a minute later, making the score 7-5.
DaRosput in his second goal of the period at
8:30, and the electricity was flowing on the
Great Dane bench.
Albany finally got the tying goal on a
power play two minutes later. David Faust
took a pass from Casadontc, who was stationed in his customary position behind the
net. Faust put it in, and the Dunes were rolling now as Ihc game was all even at 7-7.
The furious paced third quarter then look
a turn for Ihe worse. At ll:IO the Bengals
regained the lead on a controversial goal. A
delayed penally was being called on Albany
when the ball hit the post, then the ground
and went right Into the hands of a Buffalo
State player. He scored, making it 8-7, but
the Danes felt the whistle should have blown
as soon as the ball hit the field. They received
no such help from Ihe officials. "It was sad
for both teams that the game was tainted by
poor officiating," said assistant conch Gary
Campbell. "Both teams were hurt equally by
An Albany bench penalty soon after that
led to another Buffalo State score and the
wild third quarter came to a close with the
Bengals leading 9-7.
The fourth period is where Albany showed
its determination. Twice they fell behind by
three goals and fought back. "The running
we did all week in practice really paid off,"
Casadontc said. "We just didn't give up."
An early Buffalo State score made it 10-7,
but two quick goals by Vcnicr and Casadontc
cut it to 10-9, and there were still over 13
minutes left to play.
A relentless Bengal team came right back
al 2:23 to make it 11-9, and a power play goal
at 2:58 gave Buffalo Stale their fourth three
goal advantage of the day. "We weren't expecting them lo be this lough," commented
Ccrny. "We just came out In the fourth
quarter determined to do it."
Rich Staracc made it 12-10 with an
unassisted goal at 6:58. Two minutes later
Casadontc completed his hat-trick and
Albany suddenly was trailing only by one.
Then, with 2:50 remaining, Venicr found
himself all alone in front of Ihc Bengal net.
He netted his third of the day and Albany
finally tied things up at 12-12. "The ball was
behind the cage, the goalie had it, bul Dave
(Ccrny) hit him and the ball popped right In
my stick," described Vcnicr.
Twenty-three seconds later, the Danes sent
Ihc Bengals home as a wide open Ccrny
slammed home the winner. Albany had come
away with a hard fought 13-12 victory.
"We showed a lot of character the way we
came back," said a happy Albany head
coach Mike Motta. "Trizano had a great
game facing off, and overall it was a good
Campbell added, "It's been the same thing
all year; we came through when wc had to.
We just outhustled them that final quarter."
One quick look at some statistics reveals this.
Albany had the edge in groundballs, 81-49,
and in shots on goal, 58-32.

stiff competition slowed the winning times on
the track where the Albany State men's track
and field Icam routed Hamilton by a scorfof
102 to 61 al University Track last Saturday.
"This was not a high pressure meet," said

dominate the jumps and Ihc hurdles. Dane
vaultcrs Rcj .lamcrson and Jeff Gar/ia look
first and second respectively in the pole vault.
Jamerson's winning height was 13*8".
It was a big day for Mancc, who won both
the long jump und triple jump. Mance's
superior winning leap of 6.56 meters in the
long jump demolished his previous personal
bcsl of 6.37 mclcrs. "I was kind of surprised
myself," said Mancc. Bill Waring jumped
6.19 meters for third place. Later, in the triple jump, Mancc pop, pop, popped 13.52
meters lo take first place.
Dane hurdler Bruce Van Tussel won boih
Ihe hurdle races for the third straight time
this season. Van Tassel ran virtually alone in
the 110-meter high hurdles, where his winning time of 15.4 seconds wns almost three full
seconds ahead of the sole Hamilton entrant.
Later, Van Tassel led an Albany sweep of Ihc
400-mcler Intermediate hurdles, winning it in
58.5 seconds. Rcj Jamcrson and Bill Waring
took second and third, respectively.
In the first relay event, the Albany team of

1500-melcr run. Sophomore Jim Erwin led
the race from the gun, setting Ihe pace in Ihe
stiff wind. Dane captain Nick Sullivan was
unable lo catch Erwin as bolh kicked into ihe
wind on the homestretch finishing lirsl and
second, with Albany's Noel Woodburn a distant third. Erwin's winning time was 4:06.4
to Sullivan's 4:07.0.

dashes. Captain Eric Newton labored In the
wind to lake first in the 400 with his lime of
51.0 seconds. Senior Scull Sachs finished
close behind, taking second in 51.6 seconds.
Mike Riggins won the 100-meter dash, breaking the tape in 11.0 seconds as Pal Saccocio
leaned out Hamilton's Gugnon lo take second place. Bolh runners were limed al 11.3
seconds. Riggins later blew off Gugnon In Ihc
200-meter dash, winning that event In a slow
23.1 seconds.
Hamilton bounced back to win bolh the
800-inetcr run and the 5000-meter run. "Just
to take a break," 800-meter ace Noel Wood
burn ran the 1500-meter run, leaving Ihc 800
to Bill Browcr of Hamilton, who led from the

squad controlled Ihc race all the wuy into the
third mile, where Hamilton's Mike Brown
surged away from fronlrunners Ian Clements
and Ed McGill. "I was really surprised at the
way he took off," said Clements later. "He
just used us to break the wind and left with
three laps lo go. I should have followed
him." Brown's winning lime was 15:36.3. •
