1984 NCAA Wrestling Rule Book
Dave Averill never heard the
public address announcer proclaim
him the 126-pound NCAA Division
III champion, the first title for an
Albany State wrestler in 17 years.
Averill was lying on the mat, flat on
his back, in a semiconscious state,
and surrounded by a flock of
athletic trainers.
Minutes before, Trenton State's
Orlando Caseres, leading 9-4 with
22 seconds remaining in the finals
of the 126-pound division, lifted
Averill off the mat in a fireman's
carry and unintentionally dropped
the Albany State wrestler on his
head, in what can be termed as an
'illegal slam'.
For minutes, the Danes threetime Ail-American, who fought so
bravely in advancing to the finals of
this NCAA Tournament, lay on the
mat, practically motionless, while
the trainers worked on him. Albany
State coach Joe DeMco had already
walked over to Trenton State's
coach Dave Icenhower and told him
that if Averill so much as stood up,
he would wrestle for one second
and forfeit to Caseres.
But Averill did not get up. At
first, there was no feeling in his
right arm except for a tingling in his
fingertips. His head was aching
severely, and there was pain in his
neck and shoulder. The worst was
speculated of what later turned out
to be a mild concussion. Averill was
carried off the mat to an examining
room in the Binghamton gym. Talk
outside the room was about how
Averill had slipped on ice in
eleventh grade and suffered a threeinch crack in his skull.
While he was on the mat, the an-
nouncement was made that Averill
was the 126-pound NCAA champion by disqualification in accordance with Rule 7 Section 8. The
rule essentially states that if a
wrestler is injured by an illegal
move and can't continue, the injured wrestler is awarded the
match. In this case, it was the National Championship.
"I don't want to win this way,"
Averill repeatedly said while he was
being transported to Wilson
Hospital in downtown Binghamton.
Meanwhile, Averill's condition
was gradually improving upon entry
to the hospital. His headache was
still very severe, but the feeling in
his right arm was back and he was
able to squeeze close to full

There was still some controversy
brewing in the gym on whether
Averill should've been awarded the

A story teller, stand-up comic, and an aged
radical, Bobby Scale entertained a small
gathering at the Campus Center Tuesday
night with a fiery tale of the Black Panthers
and an update on his views and activities.
He has exchanged a gun for a suitcase and
has left the Black Panthers to history but his
excitable 60s radicalism is still there: echoes
of the past came through in Seale's energetic,
fast, talking, interspersed with "you dig" or
"you know where I'm coming from."
"Most kids today say, 'Bobby Scale?
What's he a basketball player, a
musician?'", he quipped to the college crowd
less than half his age.
The black community cannot hold on lo
old values, he emphasized. "Black pcoplcyou will nol survive if you do not change
your values lo this fast paced society," he
warned. "The greatest disunity in the black
community is the rift between males and
females," he said, and added that the sexes
have id behave in a more responsible and effective manner,
"Everyone has to pin five to ten percent of
their lime into progressive activities to improve society no matter if they're black,
while, green or polka dot," he said with
repeated flourishes of his arms.
Touching on his present political ideals
Scale asked the crowd, "How conic we as the
people cannot step in and prevent the factories and jobs from leaving our communities?" He stressed a need for
"Economic control of the community" by
the people who live in it. But, lie emphasized,
lie docs not consider himself a .socialist.
As co-founder of the Black Panthers, Scale
was called a "thug" by then-governor of
California Ronald Reagan, and a national
security risk by .I. Edgar Hoover. The crowd
was'enthralled as Scale rambled through the
history of his turbulent activism.
Amidst laughter of the crowd he recited his
anti-draft poem that landed him in jail in the
1960s. Mentioning Reagan he said, "1 dealt
with him eight years before you got him. I
was incensed with him calling me a hoodlum
and a thug. I was an architect, musician, a
carpenter and a damned good cook and he's
calling me a thug."
Rcaganomics, he said, is "slick, crude and
covert. Much more covert than in the 1960s.
It's very easy for people like us to sit on our
bulls and let people like Ronald Reagan
make the rich richer," he said.
He commented that Reverend Jesse
Jackson's campaign is "profoundly significant" but added that he has little confidence
in the national level of politics and staled that
ihc legislatures and the community are more
effective areas of political activity.
When asked aboul Jackson's falling out
with the Jewish community he said, "I think

Cuomo urges $11M in aid for part-time students
By Aileen Brown
Part-time students in New York State could be eligible to
receive tuition grants and loans under a new bill proposed by
Governor Mario Cuomo. An $l I million Tuition Awards for
Part Time Students program was introduced by Cuomo as
part of his 1984-1985 Executive Budget.
The program, which would provide assistance to financially disadvantaged part-time students, was devised to aid
students enrolled in an undergraduate program for at least
six but fewer than 12 credit hours, according to Fryer.
"The Governor feels that there arc some students that are
agressively pursuing degrees, yet were part-time students due

to jobs or other demands on their time." said Gary Fryer, a
press officer to the Governor. "He feels that it is unfair to
exclude such students from financial assistance when they
could certainly otherwise be eligible for these programs," he
"The program is geared to assist part-time students who
are continuing their education, or those who wish lo be reeducated in order lo learn new skills and find other employment" said Fryer. "These arc students that are capable of
bettering themselves, but perhaps have nol been able to do so
because they lack Ihc resources," Fryer said, adding that the
program will, for the first lime, extend tuition assistance to
include part-time students.
The program will determine eligibility of students under
the current Pell Grant criteria, said Fryer. The Higher
Education Services Corporation will administer the new
Donald Whitlock, Director of Financial Aid at SUNYA,
commented lhal he thought the idea was a good one."This is
an area that has been traditionally neglected by the slate, and
we can't argue with the merits of the program. II is a good
idea to subsidize part time students, especially if there is a
needs lest applied." He added that the program will allow a
great many employed part-time students lo get enough
education in order to get a better job.
Whitlock added that it was a concern of the financial aid
community that a program such as the one proposed to
benefit part-time students does not diminish the funding
enrichment of traditional TAP programs. "There is a question of the best deployment of funds" said Whitlock. The
monies must be deployed in the most equitable fashion.
There arc limited state resources, and it is our hope that a
program such as this will not diminish the stale's capacity lo
provide the TAP enrichment necessary, he added.
Whitlock also stated that a program which benefits only
part-lime students will generally not benefil institutions such
as SUNYA. It will instead generally enrich the city universities which include a higher percentage of night and parttime students enrolled. "Traditional institutions such as
SUNYA will nol experience major benefits as some other institutions may" he said.
Jim Tierney, president of the Student Association of the
Stale University commented that SASU was supporting any
type of program providing financial assistance lo pan-lime
students. "We ihink this is a very good program" said
Tierney, "At least it is a start." According 10 Tierney, there
are currently no programs that provide financial assistance lo
part-time students. "Even though we don't feel $11 million is
an adequate amount lo assist approximately one million
students, it is at least the first step," said Tierney.
Tierney also indicated (hat SASU was concerned that there
is no constituency pressure for part-lime students. "Part
lime students, up to now, have not really had anyone really
supporting them. This is something we are all just waking up
to. We have to pui a part time TAP program as a priority,
because unless we do something this money may be cut and
utlizcd for other programs," said Tierney.
Tierney indicated lhal SASU would ideally like to see Ihc
money from the program distributed to the individual campuses in lump sums, to be distributed individually by the
financial aid officers. "We would like to sec the money
distributed by the individual campuses." said Tierney. "That
way, there will be enough flexibility on the part of the financial aid officers to be able to disburse this money to a very
needy and very qualified student," he added.
Tierney stressed thai any part time students in need of
financial aid should express their need lo their legislators
cither through a Idler or in person.

UAS vending machine
Vandalism costs have risen by more than $5,000.
Vending machines have become a big
business at SUNYA. This year, a new office
was created to take care of problems dealing
solely with the campus vending machines.
The newly appointed Director of Vending
Services, Paul Arnold, now handles all the
machines' business.
According to UAS, they now sell 1.3
million cans of soda a year, all of which are
distributed via vending machines. While
Zahm said he hopes that sales continue at
their steady rate, he predicted no future increase in the number of machines on campus.
Some vending machines require water,
drains, and an area to be situated, according
10 Zahm. These requirements, he said, limit
the number of machines placed around the
Zahm said that proper lighting and accessibility arc also factors thai must be considered. With all these limitations, Zahm said
he expects "no expansion of vending
machines in Ihe near future,"
If the UAS servicemen cannot fix a vandalized machine, ihe Canteen Corporation is
called on 10 repair ihe damage.
According to Bruce Myers, the Albany
supervisor of ihe Canteen Corporation,
most of the damaged machines require only
minor repairs. The repairmen from Ihe Canteen Corporation usually repair "broken
handles, smashed display windows, and bent
metal pieces within ihe machines," Myers explained.
The broken pans have to be replaced with
new ones, and "it can often lake at least a
week to gel new parls," Myer asserted.
Zahm said il is very difficult to Irack down
Ihe vandnlisls. "Unfortunately," said Zahm,
"no one has been caught in Ihe acl."
"We are Irying lo find a way 10 slow down
the vandalism, but it is very difficult," said
Zahm. He said thai ihe hall directors and the
Resident Assistants (RA's) have been asked
to be aware of the acts of violence, but have
had no success in catching anyone this year.
Anyone caught vandalizing machines
would be turned over to the Judicial Board,
Zahm asserted.

Most of the acts of violence on the vending
machines are by "comedians looking looking

In the past four years, the cost of repair for
vandalism has climbed steadily. According to
UAS records, the cost was approximately
$9,000; in 1982, it rose to $10,500, and in
1983 to $13,500. Zahm predicted that ir the
damage done to vending machines continues
at the present rate, this year the total could

certain groups' rights that have been denied
in Ihe past. The rights of Blacks, women and
the handicapped in ihe past have not been
acknowledged, bin now are beginning lo be
instated into socicly, explained Mullcr.
Mullcr indicated that throughout ihe
world, the diversity of religions, races,
languages and wealth ereales differences in
opinions. People grouped into different
categories believe Ihcir group is right and the
oilier groups are wrong. "This historical
separation has gone on too long," declared'
Muller, pointing out that it must inevitably
come 10 an end.
Warning thai we too often take ihcse conflicts for granled, Muller asked all young
people to examine their own ethics and the
ethics of Ihcir government. He implored thai
we should not do things for the good of
ourselves or our country, but rather for the
good of mankind.
On the nuclear arms race, Muller said that
the 40 year cold war "is not funny
anymore." He said he is hopeful that the
•younger presidents of the future will resolve "
the "most dangerous contradiction of all"
between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. In fact,
he said, he expects change in policy to occur
withing the next decade.
According to Mullcr, we are "over the
hump" of danger of a third world war,
stating thai the only possibility of one would
be in the event of an accident.
Muller said that both superpowers "have
gone to extreme measures to eliminate
errors" in their early warning systems.
While addressing the problems in Ihe Middle East, Muller said he docs not ihink the
conflicts will escalate to a superpower struggle. "1 have heard for 30 years lhat Ihe Middle East will lead us to world war," said
Muller, but he said he finds this lo be a wornout doomsday forecasi. He said he is "prcliy
sure" there will not be a third world war.
Muller asserted he sees the "talk-shops" of
the United Nations as being the prime tool
for settling disputes between countries with
Muller, who has been with ihe U.N. since
1948, maintained lhat Ihe role of the U.N. is
"to smooth out the contradictions of
everyone." He said he believes 50 percent of
the conflicts of the world arc solved by Ihe
U.N. "This is not a good record," admitted
Mullcr, but he indicated ihe effort is a good
sign. "You learn lhat you mighl nol always
succeed," he conceded, "Bui you must always Iry."
Next year will mark the 40ih anniversary of
Ihe United Nations. Mullcr said lhat instead
of celebrating, the member countries will examine where they have succeeded and failed
and try to evaluate where improvements are
needed most.
Besides providing a neutral ground for settling nations' dispules, Ihe UN has also
become ihe center of information for
worldwide records, according to Muller.
Here, one can find information on anything
from the number of telephones in the world
to the number of births, lasl year, he said.
Since the UN was established, it has compiled
statistical information valuable to anyone
seeking facts of the world, Muller said.
This indicates a striving by man to understand his fellow man, according lo Muller.
Before, Muller said, we knew little about
people on the other side of the globe. Now,
we are taking an interest in how other people
live, an interest thai is, according 10 Muller,
"the greatest hope of this planet."
Muller said he believes everyone, especially
young people, musy not lose hope in the

Claiming that United States

criticized the U.S. Foreign Policy in
Latin America Wednesday.
The speech was the third in a
series held in conjunction with
World Week and was sponsored by
the International Development Program.
Cockcroft's speech centered
primarily on the Henry Kissinger
report on conditions in Central
America. The report, commissioned by the Reagan administration,
dealt primarily with two aspects:
the Soviet-Cuban threat and U.S.
"There is no concrete proof ol

Cockcroft said, adding, "the threat

former Secretary of State is well
regarded in this country, he is "not
popular in the rest of the world."
Cockcroft also disputed the point
that El Salvador is a democracy.
He called this belief a fallacy and
said that "they allow aspects of a
democracy." However, he noted.
Archbishop Romero of El Salvador
was "killed during mass by government soldiers." This, noted
Cockcroft, is not an aspect of
According to Cockcroft, the
reason the U.S. has a Latin

of economic interests. "The U,S.

year, reaping $20 billion in profit

because of Kissinger's previous
record, including "the bombing of

wiretaps, and his recommendation
of the Christmas bombing of
Hanoi." He called the report a
"forfeiture" and said it was "a
strange world the report moved in"
with only two dissenting views on
the committee.
Cockcroft said he disagreed on
three of the points made in the
report, in general. The first point he
mentioned was that the U.S. should
show support of the central government against the right and the left
wing factors in Guatemala.
This, Cockcroft said, is impossible because there is no real central
government. Cockcroft said that
either the U.S. supports the right or
the left and he described the right as
murderers and the left as extreme
terrorist guerillas.
The second point Cockcroft mentioned was the elimination of the
U.S. ban on military aid to police
forces in Central America.

Open meetings ruling
The ASP, which has been trying to gain access to certain University meetings that arc
closed to the public, such as the alcohol

recently received support from the Executive
Director of the New York Stale Committee
On Open Government, Robert Freeman.
In a letter to Assistant Counsel to the State
University of New York, Carolyn Pasley,
dated February 8, Freeman urged SUNY to
declare those meetings open.
SUNY maintains that its closed meetings
do not fall under New York's Open Meetings
Law because the task forces are advisory
bodies. Freeman said that such meetings are
covered by the Open Meetings Law.
"It is difficult to understand, from my
perspective, how the leadership of the Slate
University can in good faith ignore statutory
changes as welt as judicial confirmations of
the expansive scope of the Open Meetings
Law," Freeman stated.

village of Colonie.
Charles S. Milton, affectionately known to
friends and co-workers as
"Uncle Chuck" is, as he
puts it, "having a ball"
working as a cook at the
Dutch Quad Cafeteria.
Milton was also the mayor of the village of
Colonie from 1969-1979.
Milton, before coming to UAS, owned his
own restaurant, called "Chucks" for 28
years. "I sold the restaurant in 1979," he recounts. "It was a cross between a fast-food
kind of place, and a diner, and to successfully compete with other such establishments required 12-16 hour work days." For those
with good memories, "Chucks" was located
at the corner of Central Avenue and Manning Boulevard.
For now, Milton is happy with his position

Milton is getting, as he puts it, "the college
"I didn't attend college," he explained.
"After getting out of high school, I immediately joined the service, and spent three
years in Korea." If Milton could have his

could get to know even more students than 1

days. "
—Charles MilI on
Milton describes his len years as mayor as
"lots of fun," and a "learning experience.
Being mayor of a village like Colonic is enjoyable," said Milton, "because the political
setup is such, that one could do something,
and sec tangible results."
Milton's record as mayor, does indeed include some major accomplishments. "At the
time I took office," he recalled, "the community was in the process of growing. We immediately began work on a new 120 million
sanitary sewer system, to replace the existing
one which was old and inadequate."
The actual cost to the village," said
Milton, "was $8 million, the other $12
million we obtained through Washington."
Dealing with Washington, according to
Milton, was an extremely complicated process. "After our engineers designed the
system, we had to put our proposal in the exact form Washington wanted. The issue had
to then be put before the electorate."
Then, according to Milton, the games
started. "Like everyone else, we had to pat
some people on the back, and wine and dine
some others. Finally we were granted the
funds we wanted." At the time, many other
villages applied for such funds, but not
everyone, he recalled, was able to get them.
While Milton served as mayor, he also instituted free trash collection. Before devising
this system, he explained, residents were
responsible for getting rid of their own trash.
According to Milton, the village was fortunate to have gotten as many grants as it
did. Such grants, he explained, were usually
used for capitol improvement, and any funds
obtained would replace money already
allocated in the budget lor these improvements. The village of Colonie was thus
able to save this money, and use it at a later
time, instead of using bonds. Milton
estimates that his efforts at scrimping and
saving netted the village of Colonie $2.25
million, during his ten years as mayor. Taxes,
Milton proudly recalled, were never raised
during his term.
The village also opened numerous parks,
recalled Milton, "Recreation und land
preservation were always a concern of
mine." In honor of his efforts, one of these
parks was named afler him. Millon Park,
which takes up approximately lour acres, is

Millon moved to Colonie in 1959, the same
year he was married. Colonic at the time was
predominanlly republican, and as a
democrat, Milton was asked by a neighbor to
become involved in local politics. In 1967 he
officially entered what he termed the "local
ralracc" when he was elected trustee of the

Milton was elected mayor in 1969. Being
elected; Milton recalled, look many hours of
hard work over a long period of time. "Campaigning in those days," he explained, "involved going door to door, and discussing
one's position on the issues." Milton became
Colonie's first democratic mayor in quite a
long time.
In 1979, Millon lost a re-election bid to
Herberl Kuhn. "Colonic," he recalled, "had

Being mayor, Milton recalled, was a job
one did out of love. With a raise that he
voted himself while in office, the most Milton
earned as mayor was $4,000 a year. As a
trustee, he earned $720 per year. "Being the
mayor, and running ones own business required very long workdays," said Milton.
Right now, Milton has no plans to run
again for mayor, but he doesn't rule out the
possibility of getting involved in some aspects
of local politics, in the future.

know how frequently Ihey are used in Ihc

"The job placement offices don't always
find the perfect job," said Collier. Students
frequently "luck out" when they look for
jobs through the Parenl Career Advisement
"Whal 1 hope is that a student will meet a
parent whose company is hiring, but I want
to stress that this is not a job placement program. It is primarily an opportunity for
students to meet someone actively working in
their field of interest who is willing to share
their knowledge of the field," explained Herzog.
"What one learns in school is not what one
needs to get out in the world and make a living," said Mary Kane, who signed up to be
an advisor for students in Arts and Design.
She said she believes that the service could be
very useful in getting a job.
Kane said that she had not yet been contacted by any students.
Several hundred
parents are willing to
speak with students.
"It seems to me very interesting to learn
how someone got into his chosen field,"
elaborated Herzog. "Students may be in rollege with a certain career in mind and may
end up doing something else because they're
unsure of the requirements or special training
involved. Hopefully, Parent Career Advisors
will clear up some of the problems," added
Many of the parents in this area said they

Graduate student fee unjust
Last semester Ihe undergraduate Student Association proposed instituting a mandatory graduate student activities fee.
The SUNYA administration placed the proposal on hold until it received input from graduate students.
Before discussing the issue as it presently stands, a discussion of the issue's history is in order. The proposal last
semester included holding a student-wide referendum on the
issue. Both graduates and undergraduates would vole on ihe
issue, but before the referendum could be held, the issue was
put on hold.
Robert Martiniano
This semester a combined committee of faculty, administrators, undergraduate, and graduate students formed
to deal with the issue of a graduate student activities lee. lis
deadline for making a recommendation to President O'Lcary
is early April. Discussion, however, has not been equitable.
Major consideration in any voting is who will vote. The
Student Association cites "one man/woman one vote." The
Student Association understands that stacking the vote will
undoubtedly result in an overall vote of approval, even with
graduate student disapproval. Currently undergraduates outnumber graduates by a three to one margin and have more
access to the voting process. With ihe graduate population
sixty-three percent part-time and the hours and availabiliiy
of voting restricted, undergraduates would dictate the
referendum's outcome. T o anyone versed in political
fairness, this voting proposal is blatantly unfair. The Student
Association would bitterly oppose ihe people of the City of
Albany determining student rights; yet, ihe Sludcni Association has the audacity to let one group of people decide the
rights and obligations for another group of people.
liviiics fee. For other services such as the Student Association
lawyer or joining Sludenl Association sponsored and funded
organizations, no such stipulation exists. The Student
Association believes that graduale students use these services
substantially enough to warrant imposing a mandatory activities fee on graduate students.
Two o f the bigger expenditure items for the Sludenl
Association arc films and concerts. Again, students without
lax cards pay a higher price for these services. Services such
as ihe lawyer, Ihe radio station, and the operating costs of
Ihe Sludenl Association are also high expenditure items for
ihe Studeni Association. The radio station is a public commodiiy and cannot have iis expenditures meted out between
graduate and undergraduate students, though I would conjee! that most graduate students living off-campus are too
busy lo listen l o i l . Overwhelmingly, undergraduates use
legal services. For non-tax card holders, Ihe Student Association could establish a fee schedule similar lo the prorated
prices paid at concerts and films. And for ihe operation and
stipends of the Student Association, well especially for
graduale students, il is an unnecessary expense.
Expenditures lor services are contingent upon proximity.
Iowa docs nol aiicmpt lo lax or supply services to the
residcnis o f New York; ycl, Ihe Sludenl Association pro-
poses to tax a non-contiguous group o f graduate students.
Most graduate students live off-campus in contrasi to most
undergraduates living on-campus. Many graduate students
have internships and professional work experiences which
take them away from the classroom and the university setting
a substantial portion o f ihe day. Only thirty-seven percent ol
the graduate students are full-time. Part-time graduale
students attend one or two classes a week and work lull and
have families and substantial lives away from the university
setting. Six graduate programs exist totally separale from the
uptown campus. These sludenls usually are on the uptown
campus twice a semester — once lo prcrcgisier and once ID
purchase books.
Taxing these individuals is not only unwarranted but a
travesty o f justice. Any amount no matter how small would
represent more money spent than services received.
During the entire debate on the graduate studeni activities
fee, the Studeni Association has showed an insensllivil)
toward the interests and the needs o f Ihe graduale studeni.
With only dollar signs in from o f them, Studeni Association
officials have attempted to assess additional costs on
graduate students who currently pay more in tuition than
undergraduates. The Student Association should ascertain
needs before attempting to increase costs, somelhinu it ba*
yet not done.
Once voiing procedures arc dealt wiih, ihe substance of
Ihe proposal can be deall w i i h . Officials o f Ihe Studeni
Association proposed the graduale sludenl activities fee lo
bolh improve overall services l o all students and lo deliver
perceived needed services lo graduate students. Anyone who
has undcrsiood the an of taxation realizes thai taxes and Ices
are levied only lo increase or create revenue. Seldom ever has
increased revenues increased services. The Sludenl Association is no different. Existing groups have been fighting over
the limited revenues ihe Sludenl Association currently brings
in. These existing groups will fight over new revenues even
before graduale.sludenl groups have the opportunity lo vie
for these revenues.
Graduate students, also, have neither expressed the need
or the desire to recievc Sludenl Association sponsored services. Graduale sludenl representatives have staled lhai they
do nol need or want Sludenl Association sponsored services.
Currently students without tax cards cannot use Student
Association sponsored services, (hough sonic do. For films
and concerts, students, who do not pay an activities fee, pas

Hart Wins New Hampshire
woman 1 met at a primary eve rally for Gary Hart in New
Hampshire told me that at a local luncheonette where she
lives, the owner conducted a poll by having his customers
write on a matchbook cover the candidate for which they would
vote on primary day. According to the poll, she said, Gary Hart
would be the winner of Tuesday's Democratic primary.
This poll must have been more accurate than the official polls
that showed, until just two days before the primary, that Walter
Mondale would come out ahead. In fact, until just a few days ago,
everyone thought that this would be a one man race.
However, Colorado Senator Gary Hart's unexpected victory
over former Vice President Walter Mondale in the Democratic
Presidential primary on February 28th changed all that, And,
though the victory was unexpected, political analysts have been
telling us for quite some time now that the unexpected is what we
should expect from voters within the small, conservative state.
New Hampshire has a political history of reversing the trends by
supporting underdogs instead of front-runners. Also important is
the fact that since 1952. no one has ever won the presidential election without first winning his party's primary in New Hampshire.
What was even more unexpected was the overwhelming margin
by which Hart won the race. He carried more than 75 cities and
towns, picking up over 11,000 (or 13 percent) more votes than
Mondale, Hart led with a total of 41 percent of the vote, Mondale
finished second with 28 percent, and Ohio Senator John Glenn
trailed with a disappointing 12 percent.
None of the other five cadidates received more than six percent
of the vote. President Reagan won more than that six percent just
in write-ins on the Democratic ballot. Virtually unopposed in his
own party's primary, Reagan took 97 percent of the vote.
Portraying himself as the candidate of the "new generation"of
leaders, Hart took about half the vote of the youngest age group,
those under thirty years of age.
But it was the political independants, making up more than a
third of the voters Tuesday, that really determined the winner. A
New York Times-CBS News poll showed that although Hart and
Mondale recieved the same number of votes among Democrats,
the Colorado senator recieved twice as many votes from independants as Mondale did.
Mondale also apparently lost votes due to his close i; .ks to
organized labor. About half the Democratic voters polled Tuesday
criticized Mondale on that issue.
For some of the other candidates, the results on primary day
presented a question of whether or not their first primary would be
their last. Both California Senator Alan Cranston and South
Carolina Senator Earnest Holllngs dropped out of the race
Wednesday, after receiving two and four percent of the vote,
respectively. Reuben Askew trailed the other seven candidates
with just one percent of the vote, and said that he would declare
next week whether or not he would continue his campaign.
Both the Reverend Jesse Jackson and former Senator George
McGovern received six percent of the vote, and McGovern said
that the results of the Massachusetts primary on March 13th will
determine whether or not he will continue his campaign.
Massachusetts voters strongly supported McGovern in the 1972
presidential election against Richard Nixon.
Ohio Senator John Glenn conceded disappointment, receiving
twelve percent of the vote in New Flampshire after trailing in fifth
place in the Iowa caucuses just eight days earlier. Glenn indicated,
though, that Hart would not do as well in the South, where several
primaries are scheduled March 13th.
Although Hart poured almost all of his money and organizational resources into New Hampshire, he is confident that his campaign will now gain money, workers, and delegate candidates as
the field of presidential candidates narrows. Hart is hoping for a
strong showing in caucuses in Maine and in Wyoming on March
next week.
The next set of primaries will be held March 13th, "Super Tuesday,"when 11 caucuses and primaries across the country take
Though leading in the competition for delegates, Mondale's
strategy to lock up the nomination by mid-March is all but shattered. Much will depend upon whether Gary Hart's surge of
popularity gains momentum, or fizzles out.

"Two Irish Guys Sitting Around
Pelham Is Plainly Perfect
elcome to the Singing
Welcome to the Gathering
Take time to take in what's happening
And what's happening will take to you."
Ruth Pelham spent two hours at Chapel
House Wednesday night, singing her original
folk songs with no accompaniment but her
guitar and a plain, sometimes shrill, but always
melodic voice.
Jim O'Sullivan
Pelham began with a song based on the
lyrics above, and before the end of that first
song, had taken forty people out of their liltle.
isolated bubbles and cliques and into a world
of music and hope and belief thai the common
person has a lot to love In his world.
The forty-odd people had gathered for
Chapel House's weekly Community Supper,
which this week had been prepared by JSC
and was opened wih traditional Hebrew
prayers. Pelham took the little groups people
were sitting in and brought them together, forming a room full of people singing loudly and
enjoyinq themselves.
A political activist in part through her music,
Pelham sang a short but fast paced song that
she said was partly based on what she sees as
the questionable sincerity of President
Reagan. "1 thought of Reagan just grinning on
the television . . . and how he's an actor."
"As we work all our lives to make money
Someone is fattening his tummy
On you and me
Who could it be
It's Uncle Sam
What he giveth he taketh tomorrow
Smiling, conveying his sorrow
Personally Hue on TV
It's Uncle Sam . . .
Pelham is the founder of a well known
Albany establishment, the Music Mobile,
which she takes to area schools, and in the
summer to neighborhoods, and sings for
children. Through her work with the Music
Mobile, Pelham trfes to educate children on
values she believes i n , concepts of work,
recycling, sharing, cooperation, and respect
for others. "These are concepts that are really
dear lo me," she said.
One of the songs she has written for
children is about an instrument which can be
made with an egg carton and some pebbles
' which sounds like a maracca. She calls it the
"Shaker Song." and what is most memorable
about this simple sung is the anecdote she told
after she sang it.
Pelham Bald that she received a letter from a
man she would not meet until several months
later. In it he described how her song had
helped Imprisoned demonstrators in California keep their spirits up. He had learned the
song with a different title. '"Gravel in the Carton' is how we boogied at the Santa Rita
prison after the Live-more Lab blockade in July" read the letter.
"The contrast of little street ruffians to people putting their lives on the line just delighted
me," she said Wednesday night.
One of the most incredible moments of the
Bob Sousa UPS
evening came when Pelham sang a song simple in its words like almost all her songs, about
her maternal grandmother, who she told us
had emigrated from Europe, married David
Goldberg, and opened a store In Brooklyn in
the early 1900s!
"// there's a woman who I hue in my life
it's my grandma Minnie, my mother's mom
From Rumania she came. Goldberg is her
She's my grandma, my mother's mom."
Pelham then asked for audience members
lo tell dbout their grandmothers, and to
substitute their specifics Into her songs. The
group was told of Rebecca, who emigrated
from Kiev, married in 1922i and lived her life
tending a Manhattan store. Someone'sgrandmother hailed from Pittsburgh, and had just
celebrated her 90th birthday, Her grand?

with his girlfriend which many
[psychologists have since theorized left deep
•emotional scars on his psyche, he sat down in
front of his Smith Corona one evening at just
past twelve o'clock and said to himself, "Fuck
tnis introspective, present tense, F.Scott Fitzgerald bullshit, let me try to develop my own
vie, to branch out In new directions, to carve
l a niche in literary history for myself."
And, so saying, he went to work.

The attempt went well for a time, but when
lrown finally finished his first short story,
olished it and toned it up, and handed It in lo

riticism, he was told, "Very good, Jack,
•teads a lot like F. Scott Fitzgerald."
Psychologists now believe that it was at this
)oint that Brown's mind completely snapped,
ilthough there Is no evidence to substantiate
his theory other than Brown's sudden and
brutal murder of the professor, an anatomical
paradox that was accomplished with erasers in
a manner no coroner has yet been able to explain or duplicate. The deranged writer then
let out, on the run, with a year's supply of
Clash tapes and typing paper.
Needless to say, every publisher in the
•Country was now c!anoring for his work, and
i|he public, for its part, was reading his stories
[as voraciously as If they had had some literary
[merit, and the popular concensus, especially

Testament in market value.
Obviously. Brown's run of luck couldn't
last, and for years he was impossible to apprehend, a feat which probably did more
damage to his career than anything else that
ever occurred to him, even more than the fact
that he didn't know the difference between an
adjective and an adverb, and was constantly

In early 1975, however, the FBI arrested
Brown outside the offices of Doubleday in
New York, where he was dropping off a new
novel. The insane auteur was charged with
seventeen separate counts of first degree
murder, and 457 counts of dangling participles, a crime that was, in the early seventies, punishable by death.

how to drink and play poker by this lady, who
is now living In a Maine nursing home. "We
should sing loud so she can hear us," Pelham
told the group as she began the same verse using Ihe woman's name and birthplace.
The audience was visibly moved as people
told of their grandmothers, one of whom
worked till the last year of her life. When the
doctors told her she was dying of cancer, she
didn't stop her work and wait to die. but Instead took the year off to take a cruise around
the world.
One of the last people to speak told of a
grandmother who fled the Nazis with her six
daughters, and was on Ihe second to last boat
out of Hungary before that country fell lo the
Germans. The room was filled with silence as
the girl said she had never met her grandmother, but, at Pelham's questioning, told of
the pictures she has of her grandmother.
Pelham told of ihe time she spent last summer at the Seneca Women's Peace Camp outside the Seneca Army Depot. A group of
women sat in a circle and sang, each one In
turn, telling of one of her grandmothers, After
the song the women drew pictures of their
grandmothers and tacked then lo the gates of
the depot, only to watch as guards ripped the
papers off.
"We were doing nothing that was
defiant . . . but when I saw the MP go for the
piece of paper that had my grandma's name
on it, and It was sacred to me. In that one act it
showed how far away we were" from Ihe
beliefs of the MPs. she said,
One of the most magical moments of the
evening came when Pelham was singing ,i
song she wrote based on conversations with
nursing home residents, She began by asking
for finger snapping, which ihe audience enthusiastically responded lo. When, half way
through the song and out of nowhere, she
asked for some toe-tapping, the audience
responded immediately without consciously
thinking about it. and then finally slatted clap
ping along without any prompting. After that
Ihe audience began singing along without
Pelham having to ask. and she obviously
delighted In ihe additional voices and enOne of tile most thought provoking of
Pelham's s tigs was a song
_ about divorce that
she snug in a quiet, subdued voice as shejolo
of a child's difficulties in school ancLsocfaliy
and Ihen of the anguish of parents in'the situation:
"Your Mom and I are friends
No longer husband and wife
But we will hue you always
We II hue you all our liues
And then we cried, cried, cried. "
"I've seen so many kids walking around
feeling sad about it (divorce) . . . and I really
didn't know of any song that addressed that
concern." Pelham said she had received many
letters from parents thanking her for Ihe song
which told of the healing it facilitated.
Pelham's last song, entitled. "I Am a
Woman," was one she wrote while at the
Seneca Women's Camp. It was inspired, she
said, by a Chilean poet and singer named Victor Jara who was killed by the junta, Jara died
singing one of this .many songs about Chile
and the political situation there, while he was
being tortured by government troops.
Personally. I like The Who. Elton John, the
Pretenders, and I love Roman Holliday and
Billy Joel. But Pelham sang with an honesty
which was shattering. Her voice alone is not a'
beautiful singing voice, and her guitar helped
basically in that it was a pleasant background
accompaniment, but when she added her simple words to the voice and guitar she was fully
inspiring. If you don't believe that everyday
people can win against the big guys, an hour
of her music will leave you confident that grass
roots movements can win, but you'll also
know the pain and suffering that goes with the
Men and women alike sang Pelham's last
song together, for as she explained, she tried
to use "person" or "human," but felt that each
of these ended with male suffixes: So instead
she used the word "woman,"

any Kalinkas around here; at least I haven't
seen any riding the school bus on cold winter
mornings, or squeezing themselves Into the
security of school desks.
And Kalinkas just don't agonize over mak•ng 100 grand a year — whether they should
become lawyers or bank managers. I don't
think there are either lawyers or bank
managers In the Caucasus. The place is not
.renowned for such things. They speak a dlfj
ferent language there . . . many different
.languages. They don't understand terms like
"In fact" and "without a doubt." There is no
iced for such linguistic makeup in the
Caucasus. Life winds Itself around a coil of
uncertainties and springs to life in a flash. The
sun may rise in a series of explosions. Shafts of
lightning might shoot their arrows into the
morose humming of tedium. Rain thunders
down and washes away the petty vhining of
modern day business as usual relationships.
Nlneteen-eighty-four is beyond comprehension since the Caucasus is a place that time has
forgotten. Men in Tartar caps still ride around
on horses, and horses In eternity still gallop
across the earth, And the earth remains fertile.

We sang Russian melodies today; rousing
songs, nasty licentious songs, and songs dripping with sentimentality. We sang because It
was fun . . . because music is one of the truly
rare forms of communication in which people
share themselves . . . because music
transcends the necktie world. 1 only wish my
Tartar friend could have been with us, but by
then he was probably racing across the expanse of his own Caucasus p n the way to his

Frog Jerky
An Aspects Recipe
[by Candace Paul
o out to the nearest pond, or watch the highways well for prime
squished frogs. Choose several that are (or were) plump and not
too desiccated to prepare for this unique and delectable recipe
Day One: Pummel frog with heel of old work-shoe or run it over withl
a lawnmower. Set the frog out to dry in the sun. Overnight, keep the
frog in a warm place, i.e., over the oven, on a heater or, if you prefer,
|in bed.
Day Two: Take frog and pummel it beyond recognition. If you wish,
at this point, accentuate the legs by straightening them out and
smashing them with a brick. This adds a little aesthetic touch (a star-like
|shape) to the finished piece de resistance. Set it out in the sun again, or
in the oven on low if it's raining outside. (Now that the frog is out of it's
element, it does not enjoy water. It will not be amused.)
Day Three: Take frog and rub it with peanut, safflower, crankcase or
|castor oil. Rub the oil In well, then pound frog some more until you attain that desirable chewy consistency one associates with the best
'jerkies.' Take the frog to school or to work as a snack, or serve it in bite
sized chunks as an hors-d'oeuvre. Never serve this dish sauced, for the
full character, flavor, and appearance would be masked by any kind of
'dressing up.'

The name game
To the Editor:
This letter is in response lo Ihe Feb. 24 front-page article appearing in the A§P's regarding the Heterosexual Alliance
dilemma. My argucment is straightforward and simple. How
can one say that the name "Heterosexual Alliance," according to Gloria DcSolc "suggests an alliance of heterosexuals
against homosexuals" while at Ihe same time the name " G a y
and Lesbian Alliance is not threatening to ihe heterosexual
community? Another question one must raise is in reference
to the new name given lo the Heterosexual Alliance, that being " t h e Social Alternative." The term alternative implies
lhat homosexuality is commonplace and that hetcroscxualily
is an alternative. This is clearly not the case. It is sad thai Ihe
first attempt at a group stressing heterosexual values was
greeted wilh such adversity. It is my opinion lhat homosexuality is an alternative to hetcroscxualily not vice versa. I am
not denying ones intrinsic right to be gay but I still feel, since
hcterosexuality is commonplace, homosexuality becomes
" T h e Social Alternative." It is my steadfast conviction that
if the Heterosexual Alliance is forced to change their name so
should the Gay and Lesbian Alliance.

Proud Americans
To the Editor:
Like Mr. Grossman we are proud to be American citizens
and we arc in complete agreement that our country is " u n matched" by any other nation. This nation is " u n m a t c h e d , "
however, not because o f people like Mr. Grossman who
choose lo apathetically accept their political environment as
it is. Rather, because there arc people who do choose to exercise their civil liberties lo change what they feci is unjust.
Mr. Grossman, what is your definition of a left wing
socialist and communist sympathizer? It is apparent to us
that anyone who thinks differently than yourself towards
this country is indeed included in (his group. The
"troublemakers and bleeding heart rabble rousers" who
voice their opinions arc the citizens who choose to accept the
realization lhat change is inevitable and necessary for a growing society and is, in fact, a basic concept in the overall
design of our government.
Mr. Grossman, perhaps in your definition of our nation's
bleeding heart troublemakers, you would include Thomas
Jefferson. He spoke out against tyranny and fought for the
freedom of his fellow man. Of course the president and
founder of the American Civil Liberties Union, Roger
Baldwin, would fit your definition of a "left wing
troublemaker." Who could forget that "rable rouser"
Franklin Delano Rooscvell who conducted drastic social and
economic changes that led our country successfully out of the
Great Depression. In the 1950's and 60's, a man helped bring
about one of the greatest changes we have ever witnessed in
this country. He is, of course, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,
who lead his people's fight for their tight to use the civil
liberties thai even Mr. Grossman deems so important lo our
Perhaps Mr. Grossman should realize those who truly
love this country are the ones who question the injustices lhat
the ignorant choose to ignore. As long as we afford Ihe right
to question a wrong, we plan lo stay.

Sniping innuendoes
To the Editor:
Certain student leaders ami homosexual activists should
realize that the recent Homosexual Alliance/Social Alternative debate undermines respect for the aspirations vl'
minority groups. Sniping at vague innuendoes in an
organization's name implies over-sensitivity and a lack of
self-confidence, as well as a failure lo find constructive wa>s
to spend lime and energy.

Poor communication
l o the Editor:
1 was exiicniely troubled by the editorial entitled
' f F i g h l j n g i l h e H i k e " printed in last Tuesday's ASP. The
editorial recorded correctly thai a rally on Ihe podium protesting ihc proposed tuition increase had taken place, but
beyond that single fact, Ihc distortion of both Ihe intent and
purpose of Monday's demonstration was remarkable. A n
It is important lo explain the true purposes o f Monday's
rally, in the context o f the Student Association's campaign
against the proposed hikes, and to correct the gross errors in
Tuesday's editorial. The idea o f a rally on the podium had
been conceived in one o f my Student Action Committee
. meetings. The goal was simply to increase student
awawrcness of the tuition issue and not to sign up students
for 'the lobby day late in March.' There is no such lobby day
planned and no one is exactly sure just where the ASP received their information from.
The 'Rally on the Podium' was a concept that we, as a Student Assocjation, were not afraid to try. It was organizing
tactic thai had not been attempted previously and no one
knew for sure what the results would be. I am the first to admit lhat the rally was not nearly as successful as we had
hoped. However, the positive net results were that an additional twenty interested students have gotten involved in our
lobby efforts.
The entire thrust of this year's campaign centered upon
avoiding Ihe mistakes of previous years. Last year, a major
rally was held that had a tremendous impact in the
legislature. However, the student's efforts peaked at that
point and subsequent lobbying visits were almost nonexistent. This year the goal is to put forth a consistent, determined, and long term lobbying effort utilizing a small, but ever
increasing core group o f well informed student lobbyists.
Next Tuesday's lobby visits will represent the fifth week in a
row thai ihe SUNYA Student Association has visited the
Legislature. Coupled with similar visits by other SUNY
schools across Ihc slate, on various days o f the legislative session, the perservcrance of the student effort has had a
positive effect on Legislators. As o f now the number o f core
group lobbyists stands at fifty, not fifteen. We are still expanding that number and hope to have at least one-hundred
well informed student lobbyists as we come into the home
stretch in the last weeks of March. 1 urge interested students
to get involved — a dangerous precedent of increases will be
set if Ihis tuition hike is passed.
The problem of communication, or rather the lack therof,
between the ASP and Ihe Student Association has already
been partially rectified. However, there is a great need to
assure both the students and the student press lhat the Stu.dcnl Association's efforts lo fight Governor Cuomo's
attack upon our educational system neither began nor ended
wilh Monday's rally. The student leaders o f SUNY at Albany
will continue lo fighl for and vigorously pursue the student's
interests. Hopefully, none of us will have to "reach into our
pockets" lo pay addtional tuition for decreases in faculty
and programs.

Successful idea
To Ihc Editor:
I would like to call attention to an event lhat look"p\acc
Inst weekend. Telethon '84 is very grateful lo Steve Infield,
Mike Carmen, Rob Rogers and Tom Busby for their undying
efforts during T V Telethon. These four SUNY Seniors decided lhat they wanted lo do something for Telethon '84 besides
(or maybe in addition lo?) gelling up on siagc at the end of
litis month. Well their efforts amounted to $625 worth of
pledges from over 250 sponsors. Sure, some students, when
asked lo gel sponsors, said litat they, loo, could watch T V
for 24 Hours. However, as one TV viewer so aptly put it,
they mined ii into a way to raise a large sum o f money for
Telethon '84 and in turn for Wildwood School for
dcvclopmcntaijy disabled children and the Capital Area
Speech Center! Channel 13 covered ihe event on ihe 6:00 and
11:00 p.m. news which added lo the excitement for the TV
watchers and for those of us who were loyal supporters (you
know who you are!).
On behalf of ihc Telethon '84 staff 1 would like lo thank
Rob, Mike and Steve for a phenomenal j o b ! I would also like
10 iliunk each o f you, who pledged money for each hour lhat
they winched. Now ihc task at hand is collecting ihe outstanding money. Most of you who pledged will he receiving an
envelope with your name arid the amount lhat you owe on it.
For those lo you who do not receive an envelope, yours will
be waiting at ihe Telethon table in Ihe Campus Cenier lobby.
I urge you lo drop off your envelope at that table as soon as
possible. TV Telethon was an innovative and successful idea.
Let's complete it by collecting every cent lhat was pledged.
Lef's do ii for the kids!

Darryl Miller, head o f
the Black Student Union at the University of
Northern Colorado, was preparing to leave
to address UNC's student government on
January l l t h when the phone rang.
A distorted voice warned Miller that, if he
attended the meeting, " W e ' l l blow you niggers away."

While the three schools' efforts lo revive
affirmative aciion may not be a trend yet,
there does seem to be an increasing number
of grassroots efforts to press for affirmative

Reagan administration's pullback from enforcement of civil rights laws.
" N o w there's not much vigor on Ihe purl

Xavier University and president of the Nalioiiii'l Ortttinizuiion oi muck University and

Shelton contends some white people see a l firmaiivc aciion policies as allowing black

m o t i o n h i m t o s t o p . Averill h i t his head
and c o u l d n o t c o n t i n u e w r e s t l i n g .
Albany State wrestling coach Joe DcMco
kept rerunning the same videotape over and
over at his Schenectady home on Tuesday
Each lime Ihe five-second segment was
flashed on the screen, the images revealed the
same conclusion; N C A A 126-pound champion Dave Averill did nol slip oul o f the
grasp o f Trenlon Stale's Orlando Caseres in
last Saturday night's finals o f the N C A A
On the videotape, it was clear thai Caseres
had intentionally slammed ihe Dane Ihreclime All-American lo the mai, thus wiping
out whatever still existed o f the conlroversy
over the decision lo award Averill the National Championship by disqualification.
Il has been six days since " i t " happened.
On thai memorable Saturday nighl in Ihe
llinghamlon gym, Caseres, up 9-5 with a half
a minute remaining in ihc match, hoisted
Averill o f f the mat in a fireman's carry and
dropped Ihe Dane wrestler on his head.
Averill slipped inlo unconsciousness for four
seconds Ihcn remained in a semiconscious
slate for over 10 minutes as he laid on the mat
surrounded by medical personnel.
In accordance to Rule 7 Secion 8, Averill
was named Ihc 126-pound N C A A Champion. The rule states that if a conlcslanl is injured by an illegal move and can't continue,
the match shall be defaulted the Ihe injured
There was a large amount o f conlroversy
after Ihe decision was announced. Both
Caseres and Trenlon Slate's coach Dave
Iccnhower claimed Averill had slipped o f f ihc
shoulders o f Orlando wiih ihe latter o f f
balance and with no control. Even DeMco
originally thought the move was unintcnlional; bin aficr Ihc viewing of ihc videotape,
ihc Dane coach was singing a different nine.
" H e (Caseres) was In total c o n i r o l , " said
Denieo. " H e never losi his balance, l i e intentionally llirew Dave to the mat. Whether he
intended 10 spike his head against ihe mal...
well that's riot for me lo infer."
Averill,. who is slill recovering Irani his
concussion, would nol say oiurighi if' he
llioughl Caseres had Intended to hurt him,
but he did imply Caseres was a dirty wrestler
and he spoke, with bitterness in his voice.
" I n Ihc second period he twisted my arm
all Ihc way back and he got a penalty point
for i t , " said the junior from Shenendahowa.
" I n Ihc third period he lifted me up and just
hammered me. I don't know why he did i t .
Maybe he was trying to show o f f to Ihe
crowd (Trenton Stale rooting section). I ' m
not going lo say he did it with intent to hurt
me, only Orlando knows t h a t . "
Averill was asked i f he feels like the National Champion. He responded, " I don't
really feel like I am. Everyone keeps telling
mc thai I should feel like 1 am and I deserved
it. Well, I know for one thing, Caseres
doesn't deserve i t . "
From the time Averill's head made contact
wiih ihe mal lo ihe time he was lying in the
hospital was all a blur to h i m . He does
remember his firsl emotion when he realized
he was national champion.
" I wasn't even thinking about i l , " said
A v e r i l l , " Then when I found out, I fell terrible. I didn't want to win tike t h a t . "
What has happened to Averill in the past
week hasn't really hit him yel. It's hard for
him to comprehend that he's the first Albany
Slate National title holder in 17 years and only the second athlete in Albany State history
:o win iwo national championships.
He feels menially drained from the Tournament and physically, he's still feeling Ihc
effects o f Ihe concussion. He won't be fit
enough lo compete in the N C A A Division I
Championships al Ihc Meadowland Complex
which he automatically qualifies for. Caseres
will be going as a wildcard,
Averill admitted he "wrestled the best in
Ills life and he peaked at the right l i m e " in
reaching llie finals o f the tournament. He
also hopes someday lo wrestle Caseres again,
a wish niosi improbable cbnsdering the Trenlon State senior is graduating.
" H e ' s really tough bill I ihouglil I wrcslled
him close," said Averill."The score was only
9-5 and I just needed a lakedown. 1 know 1
could turn hint if 1 got him down. It's a
shame he had to do what he d i d . "
Averill has already sel his goals for next
season; thai is, nol only to win a national title

Women cagers host Nazareth in ECAC opener
History will be made lonighi
when Ihe Albany Slate women's
basketball team tips off against
Nazareth College al University
For the first time in the six year
existence o f the team, Albany will
be competing in a post-season tournament. The Danes are Ihe hosts of
the tournament and will play
Nazareth at 8 p.m., while Onconta
and Alfred square off at 6 p.m. in
the first round of the ECAC
tourney. The championship game is
slated for 2 p.m. tomorrow.
After last Tuesday's 72-58 defeat
to Onconta in the S U N Y A C
playoffs, it looked as though the
season had come lo an end for the
Danes. It wasn't until Monday
afternoon that Albany Head Coach
Mari Warner received word that her
team would be hosting the tournament. " W e ' r e psyched to play,"
said Warner. "Hopefully, we'll go
right after Ihcm ( N a z a r c l h ) . "
The Danes will have their hands
full with Nazareth. The Golden
Flyers have beaten the University of
Rochester, a team that will be competing in Ihe N C A A playoffs.
Nazareth has a big height advantage
over Albany, but the Danes' main
asset might offset that advantage;
speed. Albany will try to utilize thai
quickness by attempting to run
Nazareth ail over the court.

Supreme Court Ruling on
college aid delivers
blow to women's rights
By Mark Wllgard
According to Winner, Albany
will utilize a full court press for
much of the game. " W e need to get
the steals in order lo play our running type o f game," she said. The
Danes will have lo watch out for
Dcnise Hickey, a strong wing player
who is one o f the lop scorers on the
Golden Flyers.
Rainny Lesane and Ronnie Patterson are the big weapons for the
women cagers. Lesane leads the
team with 14.4 points per game (47
percent from the floor). Patterson
is second with a 12.1 average.
Albany must gel point production
f r o m their w i n g p l a y e r s , a
troublesome spot o f the team for
much o f the year.
" W e just have to hope for good
all-around scoring," commented
Warner. " W e ' l l also need scoring
from our wing players and we have
to hit a couple of free throws."
The foul line has been a problem
for Albany during the season. Patterson is shooting 64 percent from
the line to lead the team. I f the
Danes have any hope of winning
this game, they must convert from
the charity line.
Albany has had a long layoff
coming into tonight's game. Nevertheless, you can expect the Danes lo
be ready for Nazareth. " W h e n I
saw the looks on the girls' faces, I
knew they would be ready for the
tournament," said Warner.
If the Danes can gel by the
Golden Flyers, a possible match-up
with Oneonta looms for the championship game. In two previous
meetings this year, it was the Red
Dragons coming out on top.
Onconta topped Albany just last
week to knock them out of the
S U N Y A C playofrs. Perhaps the
third lime will prove lo be the
charm for the Great Danes.

By Keith Marder
The Albany Slate Great Danes saw Iheir season come lo an end as they
losl l o the Binghamlon Colonials 46-44 in the preliminary round o f the
ECAC Upslale New York basketball tournament Wednesday evening.
The outcome o f the game was not decided until Albany point guard Dan

seconds left in ihe game and Binghamlon ahead by one poinl.
" 1 was very surprised ihcy came out in a man-to-man," said Albany
Head Coach Dick Sailers recalling the last play. " O n every oilier out of
bounds play they came out in a zone."
Albany was in control mosl o f ihe second half o f a poorly played offensive struggle while building a lead as large as eight points. W i l h 13:48 remaining in the game Doug Kilmer hit a sitot lo make the score 26-18 in
favor of the Danes.
The Colonials slowly but surely closed the gap as Ihcy scored eighl of
Ihe ncxi 10 points. This closed the Danes' lead to two, 28-26, wilh 11:47
left. The game was eventually lied al 30 wilh 9:32 to go in the game.
Boih teams virtually Iradcd baskets for Ihe ncxi ihree minutes. After
two foul shols by Crouiier Albany look a 34-33 lead.
Crouiier then went on a tear by scoring four out of the Danes' next five
poinis, giving Albany a 39-35 lead wilh 3:43 left in Ihe contest. Including
Ihe two foul shols and an earlier 12 fool jump shot Crouiier had scored
eight oui o f the Danes' last nine points.
Once again Binghamton refused lo give up and wilh 3:04 left 6 ' 6 "
center Marly Young siole an crrani Dane pass and drove Ihe length of the
court for a dunk.
With 59 seconds left Albany co-captain Dave Adam look a six fool
baseline j u m p shoi which look a shooter's bounce. The shot hit the rim
iwice before falling through. That shot gave Ihe Danes a 44-43 lead.
Binghamlon Ihen took the ball down court and set up a play for forward
Derek Pankey. The Albany defense collapsed on Binghamton's leading
scorer and Albany freshman Adam Ursprung came away wilh his fifth
foul o f ihe game. Pankey missed the front end o f the onc-and-onc.
However, Mark Wright came up wilh one of his many second half offensive rebounds.
" H e was going after Ihe ball and we weren't," said Sauers. " T h c y g o l a
lot more big rebounds than us and thai hurt u s . "
Wright missed his al tempt but Pankey ihen came up wilh one of his 17
rebounds and hit the shot lo give Binghamlon the 45-44 lead wilh 29
seconds left.
The Danes ihen called lime oui and set up their final play which had
many options, one of which was the Crouiier shot.
" I had to alter the shoi because Pankey was coming over," said
Crouiier. " I was loo close to ihe baseline and I was leaning."
When questioned if he wanted to do anything different on Ihe lasl shoi
he said, "Yeah— hit i t . "
The first half proved thai practice docs make perfect as both learns
were showing the effects of a five day layoff since their last games on
February 21. Sauers and Binghamton Head Coach Dave Archer each put
practice on hold uniil they gol word from the ECAC concerning Iheir invitation to the tournament last Monday.

In a blow lo women's righls groups, ihe Supreme Conn ruled last
Tuesday thai ihe federal government may not oui o f f all aid t o n college because o f illegal sex discrimination in a specific program.

viewed by many women's rights groups as a major setback.
" I t ' s a tremendous setback," said Execuiive Director of the Project

Sandler declared I lull Ihe ruling is a reversal o f more I hail a decade

only in I hose programs involving federal scholarship aid.
She noicd ihai, " o n l y about 4 percent of federal funds are earmarked for special programs. The resi are in the form o f research grains;
and oilier programs." Sandler explained lliaj lite result of all this is
thai, "insiiiuiions can discriminate in other programs."
" W h a t we tire seeing is a systematic dismantling of programs of I he
