Hart, because Ihey want lo gel Ihe most for

Students used lo apply early and make Iheir
choice by May, slated Hart,
" b u t now they apply in
January," he added.
• According to Hart, the
key factor in Ibis trend is
that most colleges only require a $50 deposit.
He said he sees this figure as a problem. " F i l ly dollars is not enough," he noted, "because
il doesn't discourage students from sending
$50 deposits l o several schools." This leads
lo no-shows, added Hart, "because f i l l y

Telethon '84 is underway, with "beller participation
and support than ever" from the campus community,
said Telethon co-chair Cindy Kulz.
"Participation has really improved this year," said
Kalz. " W e have more support from student groups,
especially S A . "
This year, Telethon will be supporting the Wildwood
School for developmental!)' disabled and autistic children,
ulong with Ihe Capital Area Speech Center for children
wiih speech impairments, which will be receiving the maiorily of funds ibis year, according lo Amy Zimmerman,
also co-chair,
Last year Telethon sponsored three local groups:
Wildwood School, Camp Opportunities for children, and
New York Northeastern Chapter of Neurofibromatosis,
which works for more public awareness o f Ihe disease,
Zimmerman said.
According l o Arlen Weslbrook, Social Worker at tlu
Capital Area Speech Center, u non-profit institution,
" W e handle speech and language therapy with children
and adults," She said thai the center provides services foi
a six county area. " T h i s year we will be working with I3f
children, with varying degrees o f speech impairments."
The Wildwood School, which is a chapter o f the New
York Association for Ihe Learning Disabled, provide
camp and recreational opportunities for children " w i t h i
wide range o f disabilities," said Dennis Lake, Recrea
tional Services coordinator for the School.
" W e needed assistance to pick up where Telethon '8:
Incoming students inlerested i n ihe Business Teacher
Education undergraduate degree program may find
themselves surprised since the future o f the program is
uncertain and admissions l o the program have been
.suspended indefinitely.
The Business Teacher Education program is a very old
and distinguished one at S U N Y A , with a history stemming
back to Albany's Teacher College rools, A t one lime the
program had sixteen full time faculty members. Currently
there are only four, according to Robert Koff, Dean o f Ihe
Business School.
" T h e suspension o f admissions lo Ihe program stemmed
from our inability to augment Ihe program as was necessary
in order to maintain a quality program, said Kill'. He added
that Ihe program is presently being reviewed.
" W e felt it was better to phase out the undergraduate
degree program and possibly replace it with a combined
B A / M S or US/MS program. The faculty is working on a
proposal which examines our options, " he snid.
The suspension of admissions lo the program is Ihe first
step towards possible discontinuance o f Ihe program, according to Judith A . Ranialey, S U N Y A Vice President for
Academic Affairs. The second step, called program discontinuance, involves an amendment through SUNY-Central.
" W e have simply suspended admissions to Ihe program in
order to make sure we can honor our commitments l o
students presently In the p r o g r a m , " Ranialey said. " W e
want to make sure we can allow these students to complete
Ihe program, while al the same time give ourselves the opportunity to terminate the program in a few years should
that be the adminslrntive decision."
The suspension of admissions lo Ihe program is only applicable to those students that have less than 24credits as of
Seplcmbcr, 1983, "Those students who have completed
more than 24 credits before the beginning of (his semester
arc still eligible to apply l o enter the p r o g r a m , " said Harry
Hamilton, Chairman o f the Atmospheric Sciences Department. Hamilton's office is responsible for all notifications
which concern a change i n academic affairs. " W c lire all
concerned also about any freshmen that arc possibly interested in the program.
They should see their advisors i n the C U E (Center for
Undergraduate Education) office and inform them about
their Interest in this program." K o f f said that the suspension was mainly due to the allocation o f resources. " W e
had lo look al our priorities and our needs. The state is not
providing the university with any additional resources and
there are other programs in the university that need to be
developed." " T h e program would suffer i f we could not
support i i as necessary," he said.
Among the possibilities being reviewed for Ihe future o f
Ihe program are: a combined bachelors/masters degree,
with the bachelors degree in another concentration and the
masters degree in Business Education; a masters degree only; or a masters program in cooperation with an area school
which offers an undergraduate degree in Business Education. " T h e faculty in the Business Education department
must examine the possibilities for the graduate p r o g r a m , "
said Ranialey. She added that it would be difficult to maintain both programs with Ihe faculty and resources
available. " I I seems likely thai Ihey would instead have to
investigate cither redesigning the program or developing
one of the alternatives on the graduate level," she explained.
Opinion in the Business Education department is
somewhat different from the administrative perspective
however. There is concern about whether Ihe possibilities
of redesigning the program on a graduate level will fill the
void left by the discontinuance of the undergraduate degree
program. " I have a personal and professional concern
about the supply of business and distributive education
teachers for the high shcools of New York State," said
Associate Professor R. Blodgctl o f the Teacher Education
department, He expressed concern us to where the teachers
o f the future will come from. " I n the past, Albany has been
a major supplier of this type of faculty for the high schools.
The program was a high quality one, which was proven to
be very solid over the years. The demand for this type o f
' training is there. I am concerned that there will be a void in
programs in the stale Ihat will prepare these type o f
" T h e question o f where you allocate funds and what you
sustain is a difficult o n e , " said Ramulcy, " T h e Business
Education department was one thut offered us some flexibility in restructuring the program. The recommendations
wc had received from consultants was that we had to at
least sustain the program on its current level, i f not augment i t . "

Internal Affairs Committee Co-Chair Maureen Ryan
said, " I don't sec this as a problem o f attiludc, but as a

Shapiro's complaint should have been more diplomatic.
The final complaint against Busby made by Internal Affairs was that he didn't fully train Ihc members of the Election Commission. This "left Ihc elections open to many
potential problems," the memorandum stated.
SA Vice President Jeff Schneider admitted that the Election Commission was not selected until shortly before Ihc
election. Consequently Ihc members of the Election Commission did not receive as much training as he had hoped
for, he said.
The Issue of Busby's recall was hotly debated within

Central Council voted 7-13-1, Wednesday nighl, against
dismissing Thomas Busby from his position as student
association elections commissioner.
Council also voted lo postpone a pending referendum on
a part-time and graduate student activity fee because the
administration wants more time to review the matter.
Council's Internal Affairs Committee, which voted 7-0
to dismiss Busby, said in a memorandum, lhal they objected to Busby's "general lack of knowledge and/or
disregard of election regulations."
However, Busby and several members of Council charged thai the Internal Affairs committee had asked for his
resignation because of "personality conflicts" between
Busby and Ihe committee's chair, Neil Shapiro.
Shapiro contended, "There was no personality conflict.
We were both doing our jobs. Council made a responsible
decision. Internal Affairs made their recommendation and
Council decided 10 do what was best for SA, and that's why
they voted Ihe way Ihey d i d . "
" T h i s job needs 10 be done right. Internal Affairs does
not have confidence in Thomas Busby," Shapiro added.
Internal Affairs Committee's dissatisfaction wilh Bushy
centers around a failure to have the elections commission
approved before SA's October elections, a misplaced
voting booth on Alumni quad, and charges thai Busby did
nol choose Ihe order of candidates on the ballot in Ihe required random fashion.
The Alumni elections were rescheduled and held Iwo
weeks ago.
According 10 Busby he randomly selected names from an
alphabetical listing of the candidates which had been
printed in Ihe ASP. He said lhal Shapiro objected to such a
listing, because his "name was dead last."
Busby contended lhal Iwo members of the Internal Affairs committee, Shapiro and Off-Campus Representative
I a m i Cole, complained to him about how they were listed
on Ihe ballot. Cole denied that she made such a complaint.

Black feminist outlines problemsCatch-22 leaves campus
By Alicia Clmbora
Noted black lesbian feminist and
author Barbara Smith drew a
diverse crowd of nearly 200 to her
lecture last Wednesday on the
feminism of lesbians of color.
" F o r women of color, even in
1983," she asserted, " i t is a lot
harder to be feminists than it is for
while w o m e n . " She clarified that
women of color includes not only
black women, but all women o f color such as Asians or LatinAmericans.
The lecture was attended by both
men and women, some o f who were
affiliated with the various groups
sponsoring the lecture. Sponsors included the feminist

mailroom positions open
By Christine Reffelt
On August 24, 1983, two workers in the S U N Y A post-office were arrested on charges of falsifying business records, official misconduct,
and petty larceny. As arcsult, the uptown campus mail room has nol
been able to re-open, according to the Director of the SUNY Physical
Plant Dennis Stevens.
The Vice President for University Affairs Lewis Welch, reported thai
Ronald J. Kelly, 35, of Avcril P a r k a n d Carmen Francclla, 50, o f Anthony Lane, Albany, were arrested in August following a three month
investigation which involved stale and federal metered mail.
According to a statement issued by Welch earlier Ihis year, the men
nad been arraigned and were released on ball. The workers were then
"suspended from their duties with a disciplinary process pending the
finding of criminal charges." Stevens said, the two men contested the
termination, which as employees of the state o f New York, they hav<
the right to do.
" T h e y have protection under their contract," said Stevens.
"Therefore, Ihe postal department cannot hire new employees until the
former ones have been officially terminated," he added.
" T h i s leaves us in a Catch-22 p o s i t i o n , " said Stevens, "because we
can't fill their positions simply because they still occupy their positions.
The stale post office will nol train two new employees until two permanent positions can be h i r e d , " Stevens added.
The Inability to rc-open the mailroom hasn't in any way affected Incoming or out-going mail service, said Stevens.
Purchasing stamps, sending registered letters, postal money orders
and sending out packages has been halted on campus, according to
Stevens. However, he added it is possible to send some packages and
buy stamps In the campus center.

Toxic victims deserve justice
In New York Stale, there arc over 100,000 DLS mothers.
These mothers look DES so thai Ihey could have a fulllerm healthy baby. Today, many of their children have
developed rcprodueiivc problems or have developed cervical or vaginal cancer.
In factories, mines, shipyards and other industrial sites
there are large numbers of working people who have beer
exposed to asbestos. These workers have an overall cancel
incidence of 300 percent above the expected rale and an
overall lung cancer incidence of 700 percent above the ex
peeled rale of the general population.
Robert Davis
In Love Canal, the residents who were exposed to a vas
array of toxic chemicals are suffering a greater niimbet 01
miscarriages as well as an increased incidence of birth
defects in their newborn. The well-publicized case of l.ove
Canal residents marks only the beginning of the toxic
chemical dangers in New Vork Stale. Our stale has the
dubious distinction of being the seventh lurgesl generator
of hazardous wastes, and we already have over I,.100
known or potential hazardous waste dump sites.
In neighborhoods across the state we are risking the
future development of serious health, problems because of
these toxic dump sites. Sadly, the potential number of victims is destined lo increase.
What do these victims and potential victims have in com-
mon? first, the companies responsible for pioducing these
chemicals (ie. [ill Lilly & C o . , Johns-Manvillc Asbestos Co.
and Hooker Chemical Co.) ail knew of at least some of the
hazards posed by these chemicals, and failed to inform people who were al risk. Second, ihese victims will be
denied access lo the courts lo seek compensation for personal injury.
These victims are presently barred by an out-daled
Statute of Limitations Law which fails to lake into consldcrallon Ihc cancer causing by-products of technological
advancement. I he original Statute of I imitations Law was
enacted in 162.1 when injuries were detectable al Ihc lime ol
wrongdoing. Lor example, if a person was run over by a
horse and buggy, the resulting injury would lie readily apparent to both the victim and driver, rills area of New York
Slate I aw has progressed Mule in three hundred and fifty
years, It still requires the plaintiff to file suit within three
years of the dale of wrongdoing. Such a requirement Is
unreasonable in suits involving Ihc effects of toxic
chemicals, because there is often a significant lapse between
contact with carcinogens and (lie manifestation of injury.
This law should be amended lo have ihc limitation period
begin to run at the lime of discovery of the illness or the injury. This would allow people who did noi learn of their illness until 20 or more years alter their exposure to havi
their day in court.
Currently, 4.1 other slates have this "discovery rule" and
New York passed a law in IS»81 for jusl such a rule in cases
involving victims o l Agent Orange exposure in Vietnam,
This past legislative session a bill was proposed that
would have remedied this injustice. Il was passed
unanimously by the assembly but did not even come up loi
a vote in the Senate.
The main reason it did not reach the floor in Ihc Senate
was that il was looked upon with disfavor by Ihc Senate
Majority leader, Warren Anderson. Senatoi Anderson
claimed thai such legislation would set a dungeroir ptccc
dent. In fact, Ihc precedent had already been set when the
Legislature passed a law in 1981 allowing victims ol Win

W h e n I was little, I decided that my favorite holiday was Thanksgiving. I loved
all of the turkey, the sweet potatoe pie, the cranberry sauce. Just one whole day
of food, food, food, food.
M y mother had this really bad habit of smothering our turkey with cranberry
sauce, w h i c h besides turning the turkey p i n k y - r e d . makes It taste sweet a n d
disgusting. Year after year the same thing w o u l d h a p p e n ; Robby and I w o u l d
defend our meat from all enemy berries, carefully constructing a solid fort with
our cutlery and our hands. W e were no match for the wicked sweet red fruit and
Its oozing sauce, h o w e v e r , a n d In no time our turkey w o u l d be r u i n e d . M o m m y
was very g o o d about letting me, Robby and Daddy get all of the white meat
t h o u g h . T h e n again she loved dark meat.
Sweet potatoe p i e was a w h o l e other story. That's m y mother's specially.
because It's really easy t o cook. W e ' d o p e n u p Iwo cans of yams and mash 'em
up a lot. Next we'd t h r o w in a can of 3 D i a m o n d crushed pineapples (on sale at
F o o d t o w n — three for a dollar) a n d mix It a r o u n d . W e ' d d u m p it In a pie tin and
then It was m y Job t o cover the mixture w i t h tiny marshmallows. O n e year I was
really p r o u d of myself, having made a smiley face with the marshmallows. M o m my told me that It was really beautiful. It must be hard to be a parent sometimes.
After a while w e started having all of our holiday dinners at my A u n t Gloria's,
my mother's t w i n sister. It was a real problem getting the pie there because w h e n
we left It w o u l d still be hot. so w e ' d have to put it in a carton from the garage and
h o p e that we didn't make any sharp turns Rob and I used to giggle a lot as the
pie slid back a n d forth in the b o x . O h , those times w e h a d .
In the early days, scores of relatives w o u l d gather on my aunt's orange carpet
and eat nuts and cheese while w e waited for Gloria and her maid Ruth to bring
out the m e a l . But as the years progressed, more and more of the family either
migrated t o M i a m i B e a c h , or passed away, leaving a scant nine of us lo carry on
the slothful face-stuffing tradition.
T h e n , four years ago we added five more dinner members. M y cousin Jeff hil
the jackpot w h e n he married Debbie, getting her parents and grandparents as a
part of the package deal. The new blood gave us more jokes, more good times,
more g o o d desserts t o eat.
O u r Thanksgivings have changed personnel, but basically remained the same
t h r o u g h o u t t h e years. Turkeys, h o w e v e r , have not. As little as 3 0 years ago,
turkeys were strong e n o u g h t o nest in trees and reproduce by themselves, an
ability I w o u l d hope most species posess. N o w . due to inbreeding, baby turkeys
are b o r n with the help of artificial insemination, while their 'parents' are
deanlmated and turned into f o o d receptacles by witless farmers.
T h e r e are a few wild turkeys left. Give t h e m a fighting chance. Invite one l o
dinner, but d o n ' t forget to leave out the cranberry sauces.

They released their first album Go2, In
1977. with Andy Partridge on lead vocal!
and guitar. Colin Moulding on backing
vocals and bass, Barry Andrews o r
keyboards and synthesizers, and Terry
Chambers on drums. After their second
release, "While. Music", Andrews left to join
.eague of Gentlemen first, and, more
recently, Shrlekback. He was replaced by
Dave Gregory, the new lead guitarist, and
that line-up remained Intact throughout their
last album. English Setttetnent.
Following that lasl sludlo album, the
group cancelled their entire lour for uncertain reasons. Their management claimed it
was due to lead singer Andy Partridge's
severe stomach disorder and subsequent
hospitalization. It was believed though, that
the Irue reason was Partridge's lack of desire
lo keep up XTC. and lhat they had disbanded. There was also a lol of signals thai they
were no more. They released "Beeswax", a
greatest hits L P , and their other albums
began appearing at greatly reduced prices In
record stores. Mummer, however, is proof
lhat XTC Is still with us.
The music on Mummer Incorporates the
typical X T C "sound" lhat they have
developed over the years, though it Is a bit
mellower. Their earlier material was very
quick paced, up-beat music. The pace suddenly slowed down dramatically on English
Settlement, and has continued In lhat direction on Mummer as the guitar-bass Interplay
seems to have been seml-squelched. The
songs are very solid musically. They are carled by the strong lead and backing vocals of
Cartridge and Moulding respectively, and the
leady, pounding drums of recent addition,
Peter Phlpps. Former drummer Chambers
plays on two cuts, and Phlpps plays on the
remainder of the album. In Phlpps, they

lies In the droning bass tines, the drumming,
and the catchy chorus. Gavin Wright's and
Nigel Warren-Green's strings also aid trje
iong. It Is another track about the fires of
love: "No round of drinks can extinguish this
feeling of love and engulfing bliss. I've been
n love before, but never like this." This track
certainly has the potential to climb the music
Where Andy Partridge's lyrics seem to
deal with love and/or "antl" sentiments,
Colin Mouldlng's two compositions are of a
'more religious and merciful nature, In
'Deliver Us From the Elements", he asks for

louder than the noises of hatred,
Next up Is one of the better cuts on the LP,
"Wonderland". It Is a very pretty love tune
olayed at a mellow pace, which is
:haracterlstlc of most of the album. Parrldge's vocals are excellent, and producer
Steve Nye makes a guest appearance on the

her mysterious wonderland; caught In her

Some of the best tracks Include
Ladybird", "Me and the Wind", and "Funk
Pop a Roll", "Ladybird" is a very pretty love
song with sweet vocals, "Me and the Wind"
is a personal favorite of mine, though it probably Isn't likely to become a hit. I particulary like the way the tempo keeps speeding up
ind slowing down throughout the number.
Partridge pulls no punches In "Funk Pop a
Roll", as he rips the music industry apart all
through this very dancy, upbeat song
characterized by strong drums and great
guitar riffs. He accuses record companies of
spoonfeeding us music that keeps us complacent, and he even admits that he too has
been affected: "The music business is a hamper to keep your pegs In your holes. But
Dlease don't listen to me; I've already been
loisoned by this Industry; Funk pop a roll
)eats up my soul."
The best song on the album has to be the
single, "Great Fire". A l l of the instruments
are finally unleashed into an upbeat, dancy
tune, very similar to their last hit single,
"Senses Working Overtime". This similarity
Overall, Mummer Is another well produced, solid effort by XTC, but I feel that the
nafn future function for the band will be to
nalntaln their large following, rather than to

have found the perfect replacement for
Chambers, as he keeps up the XTC "tradition" of great drumwork. His playing Is also
very reminiscent of Chambers' style in thai
although he does nothing fancy, he keeps
up one of the strongest beats around. The
laid back guitar of Gregory, and the bass
work of Moulding hold the songs together
tightly. XTC also like to highlight the songs
with heavy use of Partridge's acoustic guitar,
and they accent the sound with a mfni-korg
The album starts off with "Beating of
Hearts", a pro-love, anti-war tune, as are
many of the other tracks. The lyrics are certainly one of XTC's strongest points. The
opening cut conjures up an aura of Arabia,
with a mandolin sounding guitar, as Partridge croons: "For a heart without love Is a
song without words, and a tune to which no
one is listening." He claims that this love is

College By The Book
although it contains a great deal of useful Information that
can no doubt be of great help to the success-oriented
freshman, it suffers from its "textbook" feel.

time on success in the classroom, he seems more at home

o here you are at Albany Slate, As that noted
philosopher and observer of humanity. Garfield,
puts it, big fat hairy deal. So now what? The first year
of college can be a traumatic experience for some freshmen,
fraught with heavy emotional upheaval and stinging
'oneliness. It can also be a total plsser, If you know the right
way to go about It.
John Keenan
In his book. How to Suru/ue Your College Daze, author
G. Brown, graduate of the University of Chicago, offers
some Insights to and advice on college life. With chapter
headings like "Dormitory Food." "Drugs," and the everpopular "Sex," the book is a hodge-podge of alternatively
hilarious and useful information (for example, did you know
thai Gleem toothpaste repairs tack holes In the wall much
more cheaply than stucco?). The book Is filled with stuff that
any college frosh Is going lo pick up before his first year ends,
but it gives you Ihe knowledge right away, with a pleasant bit
of humor thrown (ji to boot.
The book is divided Into four sections, entitled "Gelting
There," "Being There," " A Giant Slumber Party," and
'Staying There." All of them are lust chock-full of Informalon that any college freshman would be glad lo pick up, such
is the right and wrong ways lo cheat, the right and wrong
vays to drink, and Ihe right and wrong ways to have sex.
Mthough this sounds Insufferabley condescending, Brown
nanages to handle his prose adeptly enough so lhat all this
advice seems to be coming from a friend who's been there.
And the book is very, very funny.
On Ihe other end of the spectrum Is Making College Pay
Off, by Adele Schcele, Ph.D.The difference between the two
handbooks to college Is obvious at first sight. Brown's colorful cover seems more at home in the humor section of a
bookstore, while Scheele's book seems lo say, "Take me
home. Read me. I'll change your life."
Unfortunately, II seemed to me that the only people who
would actually contemplate sitting down and reading Dr.
Scheele's book through are people who will already do well
at college. It's a fine piece of writing, helpful and Informative,
and, like most books you hear characterized as helpful and
Informative, more than a bit dry.
However, while Brown's book deals more with school
from a coping point of view, Dr. Scheele looks at it in a
success-oriented light. In the chapter 2 0 / 2 0 Hindsight, Dr.
Scheele interviews several successful people on how they
went through college. She advocates "Making the Most of
Student-Professor Relationships" by using your professor In
a manner that most freshmen would scorn as brown-nosing,
Scheele takes this into account however, by detailing the
career of one college student, called Claude, who "courted"
his professor throughout his matriculation, and was rewarded with glowing references and an " i n " to the professor's
business contacts. "Claude chanced being called a brownnoser," Scheele states, "and succeeded far beyond any of his
disdaining peers." Whoopee for Claude.
In a purely technical sense, Dr. Scheele's book Is far
superior to Brown's, as might be expected. However,
a -t
A new concept was born In the mid-seventies.
During the " W I N " generation, as prices for even
the most basic necessities Increased beyond the
range of the average consumer, a new
phenomenon entered the American market. Big
business began selling grocery products In
generic, that Is, untrademarked, form.. By
avoiding the high costs of packaging design and
advertising, standard quality products could be

The first of these products were canned
vegetables, with cut wax beans and sweet peas
leading the way. Slowly but surely, however, the
Idea spread to Include a myriad of other grocery
and household goods. Soon we were to see
generic elbow macaroni, cocktail peanuts, paper
towels, dishwashing liquid, dog food — the list Is
endless. Even cigarettes and beer have been
made available in generic form, though with
limited success so far.
In recent years, generic products have begun
to move beyond the realm of supermarkets, and

Short and sweet, they save you a great deal of
your valuable vacation time. Generic books are
beginning to find their niche in the market.
Notable examples Include western, romance,
science fiction, and mystery novels. Generic
novels come complete with plot, major
characters, and usually a happy ending, without
the glossy covers and the unbearable $14.95
price tag of a hardcover best seller. Major writers
haven't yet caught onto the trend, though The
Stories of John Cheever came close. Generic
bumper stickers are also a reality now.
Despite the advancements made In the world
of generics, there have been several setbacks.
For example, as each major supermarket began
to put generic products on Its shelves, they felt a
need to differentiate theirs from theirs. This was
a tragic defilement of the generic concept. With
this differentiation, the consumer was forced to
choose from "Valu-Pak Crushed Tomatoes,"
"Econo-Buy Crushed Tomatoes," and "Money
Saving Brand- Crushed Tomatoes," thus
defeating the generic principle of relieving the
consumer of the burden of choice.
The telephone serves as an example of a turnabout from the principles of generics. For
years, the standard black dial phone was the
norm. Then AT&T developed pastel colors, wall
phones, the princess phone, and touch-tone
dialing. Could Mickey Mouse be far behind?

Thankfully, there are some stores which have
attempted to protect the consumer from the
price-gouging of the major department stores.

others, claim to offer "name brands for less." But
herein lies the problem. They're still pushing t h *

All we need is a reasonable assortment of the
basic elements of the standard wardrobe. While
this drastic change from the current preoccupation with a dazzling wardrobe and "dressing for
success," will take a great deal of getting used to,
the amount of time saved from not having to
pick out your clothes In the morning and the
eradication of those feelings of low self-image
when you're not as "dressed-up" as social
demands require, will more than compensate for
the lack of color and variety in your wardrobe.

real life can be quite entertaining. In a generic

excessive color and decoration, and even those

rent events weren't interesting enough, some
stations have to add excitement by offering at
least two anchormen, foreign correspondents,
and startling visual effects.
ABC's "World News Tonight" went far overboard with three mediocre, overpaid anchormen
bringing us the news from all corners of the
world. Apparently the producers felt that international news coming from a studio on Sixth
Avenue just didn't cut it. With three news desks,
the "more is better" concept was played to the

more dynamic, however, being from the "old

I've even given some thought to generic
clothing. As one who Is known for spending a
great deal of his extra money for the output of a
certain clothing manufacturer located along the
coast of Maine, I have to say that good quality
clothing at reasonable prices — becoming ever
harder to find — would certainly be a valuable
asset. While the heyday of designer jeans has

As students, we're all aware of how much college costs have risen In the past several years. A
year at Harvard, Yale, or some other such
school, with all the frills Included, now costs upwards of $18,000 a year. Obviously ivy and
tradition don't come cheap. We need generic
universities and we need them now. We need
high quality education at a reasonable price.
Suprlslngly, we're close to making this Idea an
actuality. Just look around you. The State
University of New York at Albany is perhaps the
most generically oriented institution of higher
learning In America.
First of all, it's fairly cheap. As far as the national average goes, SUNYA's price Is hard to
Second, It's black and white and all the
buildings look the same, from the dormitories to
the library. But after all, there Is no reason why a
university should go out of Its way to make Its
science buildings look futuristic or polytechnlcal.
These buildings are for educating, so why should
a physics building look any different from a
humanities building? The labelling of SUNYA's
academic buildings couldn't be more generic.
When you walk by the Biology building, you
know exactly what's being taught there. The
same holds for the Education building, and so
forth. Sure, we could name the buildings after
distinguished alumni or prominent benefactors
(If there were any), but that would defeat the
purpose. Of course, naming the dorms was a
tragic slip-up.
Third, the university is practically prefabricated. Imagine how easy it would be to
quickly build the same campus over and over
again across the country.
Fourth, note the subtle attempts by
anonymous administrators and faceless
bureaucrats to simplify the university's name to
"The University at Albany."
Fifth, notice the huge black and white signs at
. the entrances on Washington and Western
Avenues, symbols of our approaching generic
Finally, SUNYA's homogenous student body
— the narrowness of their academic Interests
and the standard geographic base — adds to the
generic atmosphere of the university.

another pair of Jordache, eat at Wendy's, watch
Dan Rather, or contemplate transferring to
Princeton, think about the generic society. Think
about the false allure of the name brands and

at nine o'clock and it was for Ihe night.
During Ihe performance, Carlln rarely used elhlc or racial jukes; rather, he told stories
about embarrassing situations which occur In
everyday life. He opened the show by asking
the audience in Join him for a ride in his car.
He pointed out the fact thai anyone driving

everyone going faster than you Is a maniac.

Carlln wrapped up Ihe show by enacting
Ihe routine on which he has buili his career:
"Tile Seven Words You Can't Say on
Television.". These words rocked the
establishment In 1973, when a man traveling
wllh his thirteen-year old son objected to
hearing profanities over the radio and
brought Ihe case before Ihe Supreme Court.
The Justices ruled that il was legal for the
Federal Communication Commission (FCC)
to restrict radio stations from airing Indecent
material during the hours In which children
might be listening. However, the Court
never defined "obscene." nor did they
establish how old a "child" actually Is.
Therefore, communities set their own standards as lo what could or could not be
broadcasted. Undaunted. Carlln has been
adding many a dlrly word lo Ihe original
seven over the years. As of November,
19H3. the list contained nearly 150 words.
For the same reasons that these words' can
not be spoken on television or radio they can
not be written in the newspaper.
Carlln Is a funny man. He doesn't just gel
on stage and utter one liners. Like Pryor,
Williams, and Dangerfleld, his comedy Is
physical: he refuses to stand still. Jokes or
stories that might not have received a hardy
response are enlightened by Carlln's use of
body language. During the car routine, for
Instance, the comedian sat In a chair and
pretended to check and adjust Ihe mirrors,
open and shut the doors, etc. For Carlin,
though, motion alone was not enough; he
also executed the various noises one hears
while traveling one the road. He Is a complete comedian, a real one-man band.
Although Carlin is one of a kind, his act Is
not. Il had been done before by Carlln
himself. All of Ihe material had been
previously performed, either on The Home
Box Office (HBO) special " Carlln al
Carnegie" or during the summer leg of his
tour In Atlantic Cily. People may nol mind
paying lo see a good motion picture the second time, but a comedian reharshlng his
material Is nut as humorous the second time
around, nor is it worth the admission price.
In all fairness, one must sympathize with
Ihe man standing alone on a stage; he faces
many hardships nol encountered by other
types of performers. A comedian must
possess a higher degree of stage presence

everyone has heard them before (Calch-22);
their fans want fresh and better material each

— Chuckles And China-
Between The Lines-
Speaking before the history department's
Youth and Modern Culture class last
Wednesday, Zhao discussed her experiences
while growing up during the Chinese cultural
revolution of 1966. She Is here as a graduate
student studying Ihe American Civil War and
Ihe Reconstruction period as part of Ihe ex
change program between SUNYA and the
People's Republic of China.
"In 1966, we were taught by the revolution thai the ideas we had learned In the pasi
were useless," Zhao said. "In 1968, city
students were told to go to the countryside
and work."
Born and schooled in Shanghai, Zhao was
sent to Xiafang, "a small village surrounded
by mountains," where she worked planting
rice from morning to night. "I was only fifleen," she said, "and I had lo earn my own
way, living in primitive conditions."
Beginning in 1966, students were sent to
work In underdeveloped areas as part of a
cultural movement carried out by Red
Chinese leftists. Mao Tse-lung launched this
revolutionary attack in order to reinforce and
preserve Ihe Ideals of Ihe Chinese Communist Parly.
Tile Red Guard, a national mobilization of
Chinese youth, was conceived lo expose,
criticize, and even seize power from alleged
"bourgeois power holders." Intellectuals and
ureaucrals were persecuted during the
Accordingly, Zhao's parents, both
eaclrers, were "criticized" by the leftists, and
osl their positions at a Shanghai university.
People no longer had classes," said Zhao.
Instead, people came to teach them how lo
Zhao said Ihal bur brother, caught up In
e fervor of Maoist Idealism, was
"unhappy" wllh her mother, causing lenslon
within the family.
Asked about Ihe differences between
Chinese and American youth. Zhao said that
the main difference lies in the fact that
American students have not experienced
such a painful period as the Chinese have.
Zhao pointed out that "American students
have had relatively smooth educational experiences," whereas the Chinese people of
her generation have endured years of
political and social upheaval.
Professor I.l-Hua Yu of SUNYA's Chinese
Studies department attended Zhao's discussion, and elaborated on Ihe educational ex-
periences ol Chinese youth. "In China there
are very few colleges and too many people.
, Only four to five percent of college-age people are enrolled in school."
Yu also said that jobs In China are assigned by Ihe government, and that many eighteen lo twenty year olds do not get Ihem.
"Therefore." she said, "many young people
end up doing nothing for four years."
For these reasons, according to Yu. some
young Chinese have become disillusioned
wllh the government and its policies.
However, she said, most people have faith
In the government and are intensely Idealistic
about the future.
Zhao echoed this feeling, "I saw myself as
a pioneer of my age." As a laborer during Ihe
revolution, she said, she was eager to make
changes, to improve China.
In May 1977. she was allowed to apply lo
-udan University In Peking, and was accepted. Her enthusiasm for Ihe future of
China has been re-channeled through
.'ducation as a history teacher.
Zhao appeared to exemplify the optimism
of Chinese youth, who seem to be the
vanguards ol change in China. She said, "I
know Ihe problems, I have seen changes,
and I have hope for the f u t u r e . "

j to the Editor:
Regarding your editorial of Tuesday, November 15,
J1983: You began by staling thai " A l Albany Slate Students
I did nol even feci strongly enough about the Central
I America issue to attend a teach-in." We find ii difficult to
I believe thai even the AM' editors would think dint because
• students did not turn out in large numbers to view a proIpiigandii dissemination event staged by a lew fringe groups
I means ihai (he students arc disinterested. Perhaps, Instead,
ii means that those students are Intelligent enough lo see
I beyond code-words such us " t e a c h - i n " and realize that
[ there are belter, more neutral sources of Information such
its The New York Titties or even Ted Turner's news netl-work. And perhaps those students have the Inlellcclunl
I capacity to use that Information lo form their own opinions
I rather than recite the cunncl rhetoric of Ihe (long past)
I IWid's so common at these "icuch-ins".
There was one, and we think only one, valid poinl conI mined In your editorial — " w e are all sick o f hearing how
Igieal the students of the 'fid's were." Nol only are we sick
I of hearing this cllchcd falsehood but we think that it is a
I very good thing that the majority of college students have
I managed to rise above the Immaturity, random destruction,
Idisruption of classes and disregard I'or established channels
| o f communication, and for accepted vehicles o f change thai
I was characteristic of the student groups of the 1%0's.
To add lo the general inanity of your editorial, you said
|"Maybc we need to see our draft numbers come u p . " Since

I , the Kdilnr:
11 write in response to the article published on November
(in the ASP entitled " A Man's Perspective," by Hamilton
|)ulh. 1 l o o would like to offer a man's perspective.
11 share with South his expressed indignation of the men
t interviewed regarding their definitions o f feminism; that
Itch definitions were limited and revolved "around (the)
IRA and equal wages for w o m e n . " I accept this evidence,
1 is not inconsistent with my own experiences.
1 He says rightfully that " t h e feminist movement has
liallengcd almost every aspect of social organisation in our
\ ^ • i l l u r c " and that it " i s determined in the reorganization of
^ l e power equations in our society." But unfortunately, his
•nderslanding ends here, lor he does nol comprehend the
leaning of his own words.
1 He says that "fcmlnlsn is for women, by women, in
lumen. Men are not, and will nol ever be able to truly
Indcrsland feminism." There is a tremendous conlradic| u n and error here and it needs to be corrected.
The focus of the feminist movement is against the oppression of a patriarchal society. But iis goals also included
l i e elimination of racism, ageism, ableism, and many other
[onus of oppression. The point is, that all these oppressions
l i e inherent in a patriarchal society. T o say thai tt man cannot understand feminism, is Itself a class distinction, If not
As a Gay man, I know ihe oppression o f a patriarchal
|ucivty. Likewise, 1 believe a black man knows this oppression when he is called " b o y " . Oiu pin pose as feminists is to
fight privileges, not establish them, As the saying goes,
"'Whether Gay or Lesbian, straight, black or while; it's the
lame old struggle, same old f i g h t , "

s i b l y has advocated an actual return to the draft in connection with the situation in South America and considering the fact that should such a situation arise it will be a
time calling for, above all else, national unity, (his statement seems at best irresponsible. I r the ASP editors need to
rely upon this type of appeal to base emotionalism for support of their editorial stance we can conclude that the
editors realize, as we d o , that their stance is completely
without a substantive base.
—Gordon K. IMulsky
Kenneth D. Necvcs
77ie ASP editors did not eonsider the Central America
Teach-in lo he "propaganda, " nor do we think
is a code word. And, on the contrary, we believe that the irresponsibility lies with those who unquestioningly
dubious American interventions in Latin America.
A Feminist view
To the Editor,
In my own way, I am a femlnlM. I do nol accept all of the
aspects o l ' i i , hut I have incorporated many of its ideals into
my lite. Hamilton Smith's article " A Man's Perspective"
was an innocnlons piece ol'diibhlo lor lie said very little in a
very vet hose way.
I.el mi' explain further. I le lacks a depth within i i ; he still
views women as property and objects, He says "having a
girlfriend " a s t o u g h , " I am sure it was not a bed of roses
lor her either. In a boyfriend uirlfriend relationship, It is
almost always (he woman who gels the short end. He
benefits. A n d , lie says being a man and a feminist Is impossible.
Perhaps men will always oppress women within a male
society, y d with ideas of martyrdom like his there will be
more oppression. There is nothing chic about women's oppression and recognizing it. Maybe ii is hard for him to be
feminist because he latches on so strongly to his male
beliefs and has an interest in feminism only because it is so
fashionable. T o say you oppress women is fine but you
have to do something more than that l o correct It, Male
privilege dominates women. Capitalism. Pornography,
Rape. Kncism. These arc all male institutions oppressing
Somehow I cannot empathize with his guilt and bis so
called "accomplishment" in recognizing his status as an
oppressor. If Mr. South wants a pat on the back, he doesn't
deserve it. Men can be feminists If they surrender, their
privileges and nol gloat in self pity. Men must do more than
"recognize theli privileges" as superiors,
— I.nri Spamirelli
It's not too late
To the Editor:
Ii is time Ihal we lake a serious look at the slate of affairs
of undergraduate education :u this university.
While Ihe quality of ihe students is steadily increasing,
the qualils of Ihe education they are receiving is constantly
eroding, There are several reasons I'or this erosion and we
as students must fight I'ot our right to obtain a quality
cducal ion.
One of the major problems at Albany as well as the other
schools of Ihe SUNY system is the "dcinrichmeni
p r o g r a m " ; thai is leaching more students with less faculty
and less support services.

However, there are major problems which pertain l o this
university individually. Although the reputation o r the
faculty at Albany has increased over the years it has been at
the expense of undergraduate education. This university
has become a research center where the rule of survival for
faculty is "publish or perish" and the quality o f the
teaching is considered unimportant. There is a definite need
for this university to seriously reevaluate its position on the
responsibility it has to the education o f the undergradute
population. However, and I cannot overemphasize this
poinl, what is necessary is not rhetoric but action. The
situation cannot be remedied immediately, the process
takes time. But, the time l o begin the reversal o f this trend
is now, before it is too late!

We're here to learn
T o Ihe Kdilnr:
I have come to SUNYA lo learn, and I think that it's
necessary lo study, nol only during finals week, hut all
semester. Hut when the lecture centers close at 10 p.m. (except LC 19) and all other buildings on campus close at 11
p.m., I tend to think that someone out there is trying to
slop inc from doing so,
I feel that the policies of Ihe university are in opposition
to the entire ideal of a university. I understand Ihal funding
is light, bill why nol leave two or three lecture centers' open
till 2 Is it i ai Ihe administration doesn't trust us
students lo bo there without guidance? We arc here to
learn, aren't we?

After the night
I n the Editor!
On Sunday evening, November 20, A B C T V will ah the
controversial film, " T h e Day A f t e r " . This TV movie
graphically portrays a nuclciu holocaust. Persons who have
previewed the movie einpliasi/c its dramatic emotional effects on viewers.
I suggest that you make an informed decision about
viewing this film. The following is presented fot your eonsidciatiiin.
Most Americans bold ihe perception thai nuclear wat is u
real Mucin. IMiiniilcs are that 50 tu 75 percent of us expect
a nuclear war in the foreseeable future l o destroy our
civilization as we know i i . M O M of us cope with ibis stark
" r e a l i t y " by disbelief I c y . , ' I t ' s too horrible lo think
about. I just block ii o u t . " ) or resignation (e.g., " I I ii happens, it happens. I just hope it's q u i c k . " ) .
The disruption ol a preferred coping strategy can have •
positive ttnd/ot negative effects. Usually one experiences an
' acute increase in eithei anxiety or some lorm o f
psychological pain (e.g., fear, anger, despair) which can be
accompanied by ritthet marked reductions in normal dayto-day " c o p i n g " behaviors (e.g., ability to concent rate),"
Given a solid baseline of cuiT'. ill coping and sufficient Internal (personal) and external (interpersonal) support, most
people can move through ihis disruptive and stressful
period lo create a more personally satisfying method of
An Informed decision regarding exposing oneself to an
experience which could disrupt current methods of coping
should lake into account the personal resources available
I'or facing additional stress. Most people have a fairly accntaic "barometer" of current physical and emotional
strain. Tins may or may not be a good lime for you to view
an emotionally challenging film. Take some time lo assess
how you are feeling. A second important consideration is
availability of lime and support for digesting Ihe film and
processing reactions lo it. I hose who have previewed " T h e
Day A f t e r " are unanimous — don't watch it alone. Do
plan l o spend sonic time talking with those to whom you
arc close about your (and I heir) reactions to the film.
Ill Ihe case of gauging children's readiness, parents are
urged to show caution in allowing their children to view this
film. Some authorities arc suggesting that teens arc too
young lo cope with this presentation; even the more liberal
are encouraging extreme discretion for children younger
than 12.
Should you decide to watch " T h e Day A f t e r , " keep in
mind that when people can no longer cope by a " n o t think
about i t " approach they often experience a need to " d o
something about i t . " I f you feci this need, be aware that
there arc numerous viable options regardless of your parlicular political persuasion. These can range from deciding
10 seek more Information to dedicating one's life work to
this issue. Resources which can help people generate options include; local clergy and anti-nuclear groups such as
Campaign or Nuclear War (800-528-6050, Ext. 47) and concerned family and friends.
Staff of the University Counseling Center (B. A. 112) will
hold an informal discussion group Monday morning
(November 21) between 9-11. Students, faculty and staff
will hove a chance to talk with UCC staff and one another
about their reactions l o this film and the psychological
issues it may stimulate.

Alternatives to prison
sentences examined at
statewide conference
By L i s a Mirabella
STAIT n«;;*«
The criminal justice system came
under the scrutiny of 200 law enforcement officials, correction and
parole officers and representatives
of private counseling agencies at an
"Alternatives lo Incarceration"
conference on Wednesday.
Keynote speaker Mark Corrigan,
Director of the National Institute
for Sentencing Alternatives, said
"Overcrowded jails are symptoms
of a completely
criminal justice system."
However, overcrowded jails are
not the only reason authorities arc
searching for alternatives lo keeping convicts inside prison walls,
William M c M a h o n , Deputy Commissioner of the NY Stale Division
• of Criminal Justice Services told the
crowd, " I firmly believe Mario
Cuomo is Interested in alternatives
because that's what he believes in,
it's his philosophy."
M c M a h o n was recently appointed to the State Alternatives to
Incarceration Task Force by Governor Cuomo. The Task force was
formed Inst year and stalled with a
$4.5 million budget to initiate
specific programs for convicts serving in stale or county prisons.
W. Douglas Call, Sheriff of
Genesee County, shared the details
of his Community Service/Restitution Program with the conference
participants. He said llie 307 people
who have been involved in the program in the last year have done
25,000 hours of work that is worth
over $15,000 lo the community.
"People don't want these offenders in their community," said
Martin H o r n , Assistant Commissioner of the NY Stale Department
of Correctional Services. He stressed that there must be a strong commitment to an alternative program
... " o r it will erode in the face of
Sheriff Call said lie did not have
opposition to Genesee County's
program. " I ran on thai (the program) as part o f my p l a t f o r m . " he
said, " a n d I was jus! re-elected lasl
Corrigan suggested the community benefits much more from various
community services and rehabilitation programs than from keeping
all convicts in j a i l . " T h e community doesn't learn from someone going to jail after the slory is out of
the media. With community based
penalties the community sees what
happens (to the offender)."
William McMahon
"Interested in alternatives."
Avoidance of costs for the community was also on Corrigan's list
of benefits secured by alternative
programs. " T h e r e ' s
maintenance of offenders, valuable
services rendered, and we can often
avoid costs on capital investment
construction.'' Corrigan said that
lire community also benefits from a
program that brings a convict back
into the society in a productive and
positive way.
Richard MacDonald of the
Capital District Regional Planning
Conference, and a conference
organizer said, " I t ' s a wonderful
turnout — all facets ol slate and
local government arc here," Also
represented were several private
agencies including Project liqtilnox,
I lie Alcoholism
Center and Hope House, and
members ol the clergy.
A representative of the Department of Correctional Services,
Clark Wilson, pointed out that the
speakers were "playing to a receptive crowd. We're all Interested in

After a delay of about two and a half weeks, the Albany Student
Directory is expected lo come out November 22nd, the day before
Thanksgiving break, according lo Vice President for University Affairs
Sorrell Chesin.
Chesin, who is also chairperson of the Student Directory Committee,
cited three major reasons for Ihc delay. First, he said, since school
started a week later this year, the usual early November printing was
I le explained t hat yet another obstacle was the delay In Ihe "running"
of names and addresses. That is, the committee waited longer to compile Ihc direciory in order to make it more accurate. "With triples
breaking up, students changing rooms and students coming and going,
Ihe delay enabled us lo assemble more accurate information," said
The third factor in the delay was a move to a new publishing company, said Chesin. "In previous years wc tried to put out the directory
ourselves. This year wc moved lo a local, commercial company," he
According lo Chesin, ihe move was needed because in Ihe past UAS
ibsorbed an expense of $l5tX) lo $2(XX) on the direciory every year.
'Now, Ihe commercial firm runs ihc risk. They go out on a limb, so to
•peak, hoping to make a profit," said Chesin.
"This company does other,directories, but this is their first college
one," Chesin said. Rather Mian dealing with huge manufacturers who
inlglil advenisc in a regional directory, they had to deal with small com.
panics that atlrtlcl college students, like 'Pom's pizza' and so on. This

This Saturday afternoon at
University G y m , Ihc Albany State
men's swimming team will open
their season by hosting the I4lh annual Great Dane Relays.
Saturday will also mark Ihc
beginning of the team's second
season under Head Coach Joe
Shore is a graduate of
S U N Y A (class of '81), and was one
o f only six swimmers in Albany
history to qualify for the N C A A
Championships. After Inhcriling a
team in disarray after several
coaching changes, Shore guided the
Danes to an 8-6 mark last year.
Even though the Danes lost only
four swimmers to graduation last
year, the team is still extremely
young. Of the 35 swimmers on the
squad, only three arc seniors, and
11 are freshmen. Due largely in part
lo Shore's hard work during the offseason, Albany may, in fact, be
blessed with its strongest freshman
Tho Albany Slate men's swimming t e a m will make their season debut when they host the 14th annual
Groat Dane Relays on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. The Danes boast possibly their best freshman class ever.
class ever.
Leading the list or first year
swimmers is Ted Ober from WappIngers Falls, whose current time In
the I00 meter brcastroke is under
the currcnl school record, which incidents was set by Coach Shore. In
fact, his currcnl lime for this event
is only two seconds off the lime
necessary lo qualify for Ihe N C A A
Championships, a feat thai would
place him among Albany's swimming greats.
Another f r o m the powerful
freshman pool is sprinter Fred
Grecnbaum. "Fred is a real good
sprinter. We're looking for good
things from him. He has a chance
o f breaking Ihe school record,"
said Shore. Other newcomers include frecslylcr Richard Gells,
backslroker Winsrar Kuo, and
frccstyler Jim Wlcland. Another
good prospect is diver Mike Vardy.
Although the freshman class is
Ihc First thing that meets the eye
about this team, there is Mill a solid
group of upperclnssmen who will
not only be Shore's main swimmers
at this point in lime, bin will provide Ihe necessary experience to
guide the strong, but highly impressionable group of freshmen,
-Senior Hill Meirc and Junior
Frank Parker arc co-captains. " H i l l
is in great shape, and is looking
really g o o d , " said Shore. He added, "Frank is the hardest worker on
Ihc team, l i e will set a great example for our younger swimmers."
Metre and Parker swim both the
freestyle and butterfly.

Saturday, a field of 12 strong
teams will vIsilAlbany for the Great
Dane Relays. Last year, Albany
finished fifth, behind Ihc U.S.
Coast Guard Academy, Vermont,
New Pallz, and archrival RPI.
Although Coach Shore would certainly like to get out of the blocks
fast with a good performance
Saturday, the Relays are basically
just a scrimmage, a chance for
Shore to evaluate the status of his
top swimmers, as well as psyche his
team up for Ihe upcoming dual
meet season.
Shore's main goal is for a good
showing in the S U N Y A C Championships, which will be held from"
March 1-3 in Oswego. Eleven teams
qualify for Ihc postseason tournament, and Albany should easily be
one o f them. However, Albany has
finished in seventh place for two
straight seasons. Three years ago,
Albany enjoyed ils finest showing
ever, finishing third, That was in
Coach Shore's senior year, and he
would like nothing more than lo
reach that mark again with ibis
young Icam.
Potsdam lias won the Championships for two straight seasons, and
although dethroning the Hears
seems unlikely for the Danes,
equalling their third place finish of
three years ago is not out of the
question. Ihc Insertion of vibrant
freshman blood Into the team will
definitely add to ihe team spirit,
" O n e thing for sure; we will not
give up. This team lias lots of
spirit," said Ober, the lop of the
freshman bunch.
The recipe for the '83-'84 men's
swimming team is quite simple. Mix
one part strong freshmen class with
t w o parts s o l i d , experienced
veterans. II could turn out to be a
great-lasting season.

Professors challenge SUNYA system of tenure
By Jim O'Sullivau
In a dramalic condemnation of SUNYA's tenure and
promotion system, English professor Myron Taylor has
charged thai professors are promoted nol for their teaching
skills bul for Iheir research abilities.
Several professors have challenged Taylor's charges and
both Ihe University President and the Vice President for
Academic Affairs have defended the system against Ihe
English professor Myron Taylor
Enraged over SUNYA tenure policy.
Taylor said lhal he was making his charges public in lighl
of Ihe current debate and public concern over education in
Ihe Unilcd Slates.
"If there's any place in America where the contempt for
leaching is absolutely pronounced and strident it's in the
university, and nowhere is lhal more true lhan here" at
SUNYA, he said.
Taylor made his most serious charges againsl Ihe tenure
and promotion process.
The only way to gel promoted, asserted Taylor, is lo get
good evaluations from peers outside Ihe community,; "At
every single level letters musl be solicited from outside
cvaluators... who know nothing about the teaching,
nothing about local responsibilities" of ihe person being
In order to get good evaluations, you must make a name
for yourself in your field, and Ihis, Taylor believes, leads to
teachers ignoring their responsibilities to their students.
Addressing Talyor's charges, SUNYA Vice President for
Academic Affairs Ramaley said lhat "for a while we
overstated research because we were growing into a University from a teacher's college... people overestimated and
overemphasized scholarship in order lo gel us staffed in a
way which seemed to fit our new mold."
She said Ihe institution is maturing, and research and
education were becoming equally emphasized, bul lhal
tenure and promotion should nol be granted unless original
research or scholarship had been made by a leacher. This
comes wilh being a pari of a University center, she explained.
Taylor maintained, "Within the system everything is
done to encourage you to ignore all of your local responsibilities in order lo make sure you gel a name" in your
field. Taylor talked about his own experience, "like every
other person coming through the mill I was told essentially
to do just exactly lhat,"
"I couldn't gel il (tenure) now, I wouldn't have tl\
slightest chance," Taylor said. Ramaley declared that
"SUNYA's mission is research and leaching " and Ihe two
arc "inseparably linked."
She said lhal tenure and promotion decisions are made
through guidelines developed by Ihe University Senate,
which can then be accepted or modified by the President,
who musl also lake inlo account union contracts and Ihe
policies of Ihe SUNY Board of Trustees. These arc formulated together and aflcr Ihe Presidcnl's approval, given
10 the Vice Presidenl for Academic Affairs for implementation.
The Guidelines for the Preparaiion of Recommendations
for Promotion and Continuing Appointment for 1983-84
define scholarship as "original scholarly contributions or
artistic works which constitute significant advances or major contributions lo the individual's discipline and which
serve as a basis for major professional awards or distinctions in the discipline."
The Guidelines, which Ramaley called a "cookbook"
because Ihcy tell exactly how to evaluate a applicant, also
