State Quad party leads to
referral over beer permit
State University
of New York at Albany
Consider staying in Albany for Summer Sessions '84.
We'll be offering some of the most sought after courses
at the University — some you may even have been closed
out of during the regular school year. And summer in the
Capital District is something special — see the New York
City ballet and John Houseman's Acting Company, spend
a day at the Saratoga races, catch a SPAC concert,
camp out at the Kool Jazz Festival, or stay home and
catch some rays around the fountain. Summer's
great time at the University, too. All facilities,
from computer rooms to tennis courts, are
less crowded and class sizes are also
smaller, more personal.
Take advantage of this chance
to move, ahead in your studies —
maybe even to graduate early
and save some living ex

Students lobbying last year; Inset: Jim Tierney
Smaller groups are lobbying this year, Tierney said.
Mass lobbying termed ineffective
Full knowledge of issues difficult for large groups to attain
By Bob Gardlnier
rasrtmiuiiMi EbirdR
In a show of Influence by numbers, over 3,000
SUNY students and professors flooded the Albany
Legislative Office Building (LOB) one year ago in
hopes that their mass lobbying effort would sway
legislators lo reverse tuition hikes and
layoffs SUNY-widc. Hut, sludenls
paid more for luition and dorm rem
this year — whal happened?
.Student leaders thai day were excited, determined and opinionated. They rushed
around organizing sludenls and leading information
sessions in Ihc various conference rooms. Sludenls, as
I hey chatted and ga/ed at the interior of the LOB, were
directed into information conferences and later divided into smaller groups lo visit the upstairs offices of
their legislator.
As former Student Association (SA) President Mike
Corso stood amidst the milling crowd of lobbying
students thai day he said, "It is obviously very successful and there is talk around the legislature that they
are overwhelmed by the number of sludenls."
Later, students returning from legislative offices
however, were no so c.xhilcraicd and may have given
Corso's term 'overwhelmed' a different meaning.
"Nol many assemblymen were available; it was
frustrating and wc fell we weren't accomplishing
anything," said a SUNYA student. "We don't know
Ihc issues too well so they could gel away with being
vague," she said.
"The reception was nol thai greal. They knew wc
were coming and most of them were gone
somewhere," said a SUNY Brockporl student.
The experience of lasl year's mass-.studenl lobby and
ils results raise questions about effective lobbying —
whal works and whal doesn'i? Mass lobbying is one
facet of the constiiulional right to redress gricvenccs
and as such is always welcome by the legislature, said
Assemblyman James Tallon, (D-Binghaniton), "but il
basically has liille impact." Groups uften pack
busloads of people inlo the LOB lo try and influence
Ihc legislature but this mclhod is "ouiside the process
of legislative decisions," he said.
As an example Tallon cited whal he called a "yearly
spring ritual" beticr known as Motorcycle Bay.
Motorcyclists yearly come cn-masse to Albany to prolesl the helmet law. "It has little influence," said
Tallon, "there is a lot more impact if a small informed
group comes inlo our office and lalks to us ahoul the
Tallon tidded that somehow interest groups have ihc
feeling thai they can "force us, bill we are nol going to
fund a project jusl because some group sends its
iroops to Albany."
The Sludenl Association of the Slate University
(SASU) litis a core of highly professional lobbyists, according 10 Tallon, and are accepted as legit itnalc and
informed and relied upon by the legislature for informal ion, he'added. A SASU lobbyist, Mope Cieisler, is
registered with the stale of New York here in Albany
and a recognized lobbyist, according to Donald
Schtun, Deputy Director for Administration at ihc
New York State Temporary Commission on Lobbying,
It is a combination Of elements that arc attractive to
the legislators and as such are very effective for lobbying, according to Schum. Lobbyists who arc credible,
honest, reliable and informed will be most influential
with Ihc legislature, he said. Legislators like informed
lobbyists because, with Ihc increased number of bills
that they have lo deal with on a daily basis, they need
the information thai good lobbyists can provide, added Schum.
Powerful lobby efforts are not necessarily associated
with big money inlercsls cither, he said. Power lo influence is nol in the hands of a few select well financed
lobbyists, he commented. "Lobbying concerns preliy
much run liic gamut and depend on issues before the
legislature," said Schum.
. In tiis proposed budget, released January 17, Governor Mario Cuomo has called for yet another tuition
and dorm rem increase for SUNY — $200 more for
tuition and $150 increase in dorm costs — for Ihc
1984-85 school year. Bui there is more money around
this year says SASU President Jim Tierney and "We
(SUNY) will probably gel something back," he added.
In an effort to change sludenl lobbying luetics
SASU has organized small groups of between 50 to 70
informed sludenls who have been visiting Ihc
legislature every Tuesday since (he stale budget was
released, according lo Tierney. There will be no
massive one day lobbying this year, said Tierney. "If
we had a big blowout like lasl year we would not be as
effcclivc," he said.
The only event approaching the lurnout of lasl
year's SUNY-wide lobby effort will lake place today
with approximately 200 sludenls organized by
NYP1RO and the Student Action Commit ice visiling
Ihc legislative offices. This is a crucial lime according
to Tierney, and a decision is imminent on Cuomo's
budget proposals to meet the April 1st deadline.
Il was necessary for SUNY to have ihc big
demonstration last year according to Tierney. Because

At a recent conference held in New York
City, S U N Y A President Vincent O'Leary
cited a decline in Ihe number o f students
enrolled in our " f i n e teacher education prog r a m " and emphasized Ihe need to expand
and improve teacher education programs
throughout New York State.
Joining O'Leary and Dean of Education
Robert K o f f at the conference were
presidents and deans from nine other universities throughout New York Stale which offer
docloral degree programs in professional
. In addition 10 calling for reforms in Ihe
training of teachers, Ihe presidents and deans
called for stale and federal governments to
j o i n them in making a committment towards
strengthening schools in the slate of New
York, according to a stalemenl issued with
the press release of the conference.
The conference was in part a reponse to
several reports issued in the past year which
called attention 10 problems in the nations

" W h i l e Ihe conditions of public and

to work together actively lo improve teacher
training, contribute lo curricular reform, and

the educational needs of the state," Ihe statement explained.
In a later Interview, O'Leary said that
among the planned activities that will be pari
of the committment arc scholarship programs for talented education students, programs among the schools o f education to
share and exchange their resources, and
cooperative ventures between universities
and schools to develop curricula in mutually
beneficial ways.
Such programs, added O'Leary, will be
carried out with primary and secondary
schools, as well as with other universities.
The statement noted that because education reform requires recognition that teachers
arc central 10 the effort, the presidents and
deans, besides calling for better working conditions for teachers (up 10 date textbooks and
institutional materials, sound testing p r o - '
grams and effective discipline procedures)
emphasized the importance o f increasing
teacher salaries.

On ihe day before ads were aired, I Ian said
he thought the candidates should slay om of

There were also contradictory accounts
from press secretary Ka'lhy Uushkiu and Han
on how much he knew aboul I he commercials
before the decision was made to put them on
the air.
Earlier in ihe week, Han charged Mondale
with using a television commercial lo make
personal aitucks focused on l i n n ' s age, his
name change from llaripencc to Hart and
dropping Winien as ihe middle name from
his official Senate signal inc.
Indignant, Hail said Mondale "knows in
his heart there is no blemish on my character
ihai would prohibit me from governing litis
country in litis decade.,"
Il turned mil ihfl.l the ui'i'eiiillng ml did mil
'exist, or If il did exisl thai il was never broadcast. A senior staff member bad reported the
ad to the traveling campaign staff, and Hart
decided lo attack it without.confirming that
il did indeed exisl.
Later, David Landau, the deputy campaign manager, claimed that although the information aboul Ihe ad actually being used
was faulty, the Mondale advertising agency
had prepared commercials noting that M o n dale had not changed his name.
To some extern, the errors can be explained by a primary election system devised by
Democratic leaders that requires candidates
to compete in a large number o f important
states in under a month.
Mondale's well-financed, well-organized
campaign was built for Ihe early rush of
primaries and party caucuses, which will
determine over half the 1,967 delegates needed to win the nomination in July,
H a n ' s Illinois campaign manager, Wayne
Kooncc, said over I he weekend that the need
'to expand the campaign so rapidly has "placed an enormous amount of stress on ihe cand i d a l and his organization."
" T h e reality of the Han campaign is a
relatively small number of people stretched
beyond all limits o f endurance," Kooncc

16-hour campaign days, including four o r
five airplane nights daily, are beginning lo

In Sunday night's candidate debate,
however, Han appeared rested, and even
displayed an uncharacteristic bit o f theater by
handing Mondale a copy of his book, " A
New Democracy," lo counter Ihe former vice
president's' charge ihai his campaign ol' " n e w

The debate was Ihe only l'acc-to-facc confrontation in the Illinois campaign, a light

Attitudes changing toward women
who choose math, science fields
By Judy Geshwlnd
"In America, there is a different altitude
about women working ... it's how the woman
views herseir, but I sec this altitude
changing," said Nadya Lumelsky, a graduate
student in Biology at SUNY Albany, and a
Russian immigrant.
Vice President
Academic Affairs Judith
Ramaley addressed the
changing altitudes about
women working, and the reasons behind the
lack of women studying sciences in an interview in her office Monday.
Ramaley said that in high schools and in
junior high schools, young women are being
encouraged to take more science and
mathematics courses. She said that in order
to enter the sciences, "long preparation is
needed." Women are being encouraged to
keep their options opened," she added.

At llie college level, women are now
"smart" as to knowing how they can best
present themselves as a "strong" candidate
for entering graduate school, They know
how important it is to participate in such activities as community service and to do
research, said Ramaley. She added that
graduate schools are now "actively
recruiting" women students who arc talented
and qualified.
Ramaley commented that things are even
changing at the kindergarten level. "The piclures around the kindergarten room used to
show a man in a white coat with the label
"doctor" and other pictures, such as a man
who was an "engineer", and perhaps a
woman who would be a "teacher." This attitude is changing, she maintained. Now,
through the Education Supply House,
teachers "are able lo get pictures of women,
and also of minorities engaged in various occupations." These new role models are "sublie hinis thai let the younger children know
thai they have different careers opened 10

Madness Is Still Moving
n 1979, when Madness released their
first album. One Step Beyond, they
took their place as one of (he main
bands in the new "ska" movement. Ska is
more or less a faster type of reggae, although
reggae Itself -was a branching out of the
original ska movement of the sixties. The
name Madness was derived from the Prince
Buster song of the sanr' name. Prince
Buster, by the way. was the heart of the
original ska movement, along with the
Skatalltes. Don Drummond, and Rita
Marley. Though Madness was grouped witli
such other bands as Bod Manners. The
-Specials. The Selector, and The Engli
Beat, they saw their sound as something ui
que, despite the fact that their songs "One
Step Beyond" and "Night Boat to Cairo" are
ska benchmarks. Sax player Lee Thompson
coined the phrase "nutty sound" to refer to
Madness' brand of music.
(sax). Graham McPherson (vocals), and
most importantly, Carl Smyth (vocals).
Smyth, formerly known as Chas Smash, had
been the trademark of the Madness nuttiness. with his various shouts and fancy
footwork, The name changes, and the
song split 50 percent of the royalties, and the
rest of the band members split 50 percent.
Since the songwrlting chores ate shared out
pretty evenly among the band, this has been
a successful formula.
The LP begins with the title cul. "Keep
Back in those early days, the seven band
members were known as "Monsieur Barso."
"Chrissy Boy." "Suggs," "Bedders," "Kix,"
"Woody Woods," and "Chas Smash.'^They

songs as "Baggy Trousers" and Cardiac Arrest." Why the term nutty? Guitarist Chris
Foreman answered, "'cos our music sounds
like fairgrounds and organs and things. It
sounds nutty."
I'd have to agree with that assessment.
Anyone who could listen to Madness and
not have an uncontrollable urge to bounce
all around the room must have been dead
for a few years.
On the Seven album, though, such songs
as "It Must Be Love." and "Grey Day." a
couple of slower, more subdued numbers,
signalled an upcoming change. The release
of a compilation album. Complete Madness.
seemed to be a turning point in the musical
life of the band. Other bands in the general
"ska" movement were either breaking up or
changing their style, and Madness also saw
the need for change.
The change came with their next album. The
Rise and Fall of Madness. The songs were
much more controlled, low-key productions,
and. aside from one or two real gems, the
album was generally flat, The boys had gone
a little too far in the opposite direction from
their previous style. The nicknames were
dropped, and the band members were now
known as Mike Barson {keyboards). Chris
Foreman (guitar). Mark Bedford (bass).
Daniel Woodgate (drums), Lee Thompson
movement of Smyth to co-vocalist marked a
general push to integrate the vocal sound of
the band to a smoother, more melodious
one. Rise and Fall also marked a commercial
breakthrough for the group with the top 40
single "Our House."which landed them a
contract with Geffen records.
Moving," which is one of the better cuts, a
slower paced, smooth number with a catchy
chorus, which is what much of Rise and Fall
lacked. Lee Thompson and guest artist TKO
provide some great hornwork. and the bass
of Dan Woodgate is .flawless.
After a domestically released compilation,
Madness, we arrive at the present, and the
bands seventh and latest release Keep Moving.
They certainly have done so. Their music
has moved from ska to nutty to subdued,
and they have now reached a happy
medium, with an even more polished
sound. The album has its flashes of nut*
tiness. laced with the more controlled sound
of Rise and Fall, and is highlighted
throughout by outstanding vocals. The instruments meld together better than they
ever have before, and the band has matured
still further in it's sound. One of the reasons
that Madness has managed to remain intact
so long, after so many style changes. Is that
not only do they work well together, but the
band members are genuine friends. They
also have a financial agreement that works
quite well for them. The composers of each
Next up is the previously released import
single, "Wings of a Dove." This is the best
cut on the album, a very upbeat, bouncy
number highlighted by the backing vocals of
the "Pentecostal First Born Church of the
Living God Inspirational Choir." and
Woodgates drums. " C r e i g h t o n Steel
Sounds" add steel drums which, coupled
with Foreman's island guitar riffs, give the
song some Caribbean flavor.
Tlie domestic single from the album. "Sun
and the Rain,"is the third cut. and another
potential hit off the LP. It begins with a nice
piano solo by Barson, and then breaks into a
very catchy song that makes you ,vant to get
up and go. Smyth and McPherson sound
great together, with Smyth providing the
harmony for MacPherson's lead, The cut
also features strings arranged by David Bedford, and a rare guitar solo by Foreman. The
band sounds very tight and professional thus

belter, and sounds more polished The production work was done by Clivc Langer and
Alan Wlnstanley, who deserve credit lor an
excellent job. This particular vmq is
highlighted by dreamy strings. Bedford's
bass, and Thompson's horns
Next up is a very comical number,
"Mlcheal Calne." which features the actor
himself saying "My name Is Michael Cainc."
It Is a very melodious tune, with
McPherson's excellent vocals, bached by
Smyth's, as well as a couple of ladles known
as "Afrodlzlak." This song is a prime example of the concerted effort to upgrade and
emphasize the vocal aspect of Madness.
Side Two begins with "Prospects." a
slower, subdued number similar in the type
of song on Rise and Fall though it is
nowhere near flat. Barson's keyboards give
the aura of walking through a citcus
fairground, as Lee Thompson blows a mean
sax throughout the track.
"Victoria Gardens" follows next, and is a
very English Beat sounding tune, with good
reason. General Public (a.k.a. Dave Wakeling and Ranking Roger, formerly of the
Beat) sing along with McPherson, and
Thompson sounds remarkably like the Beat's
former sax player, "Saxa," The sony is also
reminiscent of the earlier days of the linglish
ska movement. The next cut. "Samantfia,"
Is the sleeper on the album. It is a moderately
paced, funky love song with a great bassllne

This is followed by one of the most experimental songs on the album. "One Bettet
Day." No matter how you slice it. this track
still sounds like tango music that you'd heat
in some ritzy nightclub.

Madness' sense of humor is siill iniact. and
no matter what changes the band

Overall, Keep Mouina is an excellent
album. It is an LP which will please Madness
fans, both new and old. It Is also possibly
their best complete effort since thelt ilebut

well-written, well-performed album which

Sitting Through The Spin Cycle
'here she Is — that Inconsiderate slob In
the lime green sweats, returning to the
laundry room to continue her dirty work.
Half an hour ago she yanked some poor sod's
wet clothing out of washing machine to make
room for her fithly stuff, oblivious to the fact
that clean underwear and socks were falling to
the scummy, lint-covered floor. Oh no — she
doesn't notice — she gives no thought to her
fellow human beings, much less a fellow
SUNYA student. She'd probably sell her own
grandmother to the circus for a . . .

Oh lovely. Just wonderful. Some big jock is
checking for empty dryers. Doesn't he know
that when you open the doors the motors stop
and you have to press the button to start them
up again? Does it really matter? After all, when
you come downstairs after an hour and your
laundry is still soaking wet and you have to go
to class and . . .
Now what Is the lime woman doing? She's
taking clothes out of a dryer so she can put her
own stuff in. Ten to one those clothes are still
damp. Isn't it great to come down and find
that your clothes have been removed from the
dryer before they have been dried? We're talking mildew here! But, you know, there is one
thing you can do about it. You know for a fact
that the guilty party's clothing is in "your"
'dryer, and you can open that door and took
around for a second, and then go upstairs. Silly of you to forget to push that little button,
wasn't it? Oh well.
Now who does this nitwit think she is? She's
flapping her arm like a deranged . . . Oh —
she's cleaning off the lint filter from her dryer.
How nice of her to share her lint with
everybody in the room. She's not one for
discreetly placing it in back of the dryer, or
stranger yet, in the garbage can — she wants
to make sure thai it is evenly dispersed
throughout the room. Of course, we all appreciate the gesture. 1 think I feel an allergy attack coming on.
That does it — the lime green wench has
committed the ultimate crime; she left that
damp load of wash in a crumpled heap on top
of the dryer. She has dropped to the lowest
cateqory of laundry room creeps — (soap)
set, n. There is no horror comparable to finding your freshly cleaned laundry in this
abominable condition — you might as well
start all over again! Each article of clothing has
now been granted its own distinct set of unattractive wrinkles, which can be eradicated only
by rewashing and drying, or worse yet, Ironing. I know that most people have nothing betler to do than spend six or seven hours ironing
sweatshirts and jeans.
Here comes a decent looking young
woman. 1 doubt she'll find a washing machine,
though, it's pretty packed down here. O h ,
she's taking wet clothes out of a machine. 1
hope she proves more responsible than that
green woman . . . Oh, how sweet. She's actually putting them into a dryer. Now that's
considerate. It kind of gives you faith In the old
human race again . . .
Now here is a guy who obviously has not
done his laundry in a long while — everything
seems to be a sort of washed-out greyish color
and kind of limp. Gross. I'll bet he hasn't even
changed his sheets all semester — they're probably all stiff and . . .What on earth is he doing? I believe he is removing his socks and
throwing them into the washer! It's already
stuffed to the brim and . . . Oh! His feet are
disgusting. They've got corns and things on
them and he obviously hasn't cut his toenails
in abcut six months and there are lint and soap
granules and dirty water all over the floor and
he's stepping in it! Sickening. I hope he
doesn't intend to wash his underwear, too.
Oh — there's the owner of the clothes so
gracefully put in the dryer by the decentlooking young woman. She does not look
pleased. She found her clothes, alright, but
she doesn't seem too happy about It; Now
she's digging furiously through the dryer, snatching up some of them, and marching out in a
huff. I believe she's upset.
Watch out — she's back. 1 hope she's not
planning to do something nasty, like pouring
bleach In the woman's wash. I might be forced
to Intervene, and considering the look on her
face, the idea does not thrill me. Oh good —
she's just taping a note to the washing
machine. I'd be willing to bet it's not a thank
you note, though. 1 think I'll just meander over
and check . . . Correct. !t Is nor a note of
gratitude. In fact, it's downright insulting! Apparently this woman is not in the habit of drying her sweaters in the machine. Now. I can
see her point, but I find that comment about
L ihe woman's mother unnecessary.
Oh no. Here comes the poor woman.
Maybe she won't see ihe note (how can she
miss it? I can practically see smoke rising from
it). She saw it — now she's reading ii. Now
she's looking hesitiantly from side to side.
Boy. is her face red. She's unloading that
washer wiih lightning speed, Look at those
hands go! Don't want to get caught unloading
that machine! Now she's running out of the
room. I'd slow down sister, ii's slippery
in . . . Oh lord, please don't let me laugh at
the sight of this poor girl sprawled out on the
floor. 1 really do not want to laugh. Good,
she's gone.
And here comes some guy looking for a
dryer — he's feeling the tops to check for heat.
Enjoying yourself, buddy? You're not feeling
this dryer, that's for sure, because I'm silting
right on top like a buddha, guarding my property. Last week one of my friends had a
brand-new pair of Levi's stolen. We put our
note on the dryer, mentioning ihe fact that she
had an infectious skin disease on her legs. (Let
the creep suffer). I don't allow anyone to mess
with my siuff — no way. Anyone who comes
near my dryer gets a glare from me. I' ve been
silting in this hot, stuffy r(
for 50 minutes
(except for a quick irip upstaii to get a soda),
and my clothes will be dry in 10 more
minutes, and . . , wait a second. This dryer
doesn'l feel very warm — in fact, it's stone
cold! Oh lord, ii isn't even running! My clothes
are still soaking wei! Somebody must have
sabotaged ii while I was upstairs! All this lime
in this suffocating sweatbox (or . . . All right,
that does it, Revenge. 1 think I'll stop the limewoman's dryer.
She deserves it.

Why ihcn do people complain? One cuuld say lhai in
dividual! have different music laslcs and thai everyone
would prefer llieir favorite band, no mailer how big they are,
lo play in Ihe campus center ballroom. Maybe people arc nol
satisfied with shows lhai are small enough to til into the
Palace Theatre, such as Joe Jackson, The Pretenders, The
Band, Santana, Jerry Garcia, and John Cougar Mellencamp,
just to name a few. Whal are people interested in seeing? I
can noi believe that people will always complain unless UCB
presents The Who or The Rolling Slones or Bruce Springsteen. What Ihen is UCB supposed lo do? The Concert Board
is a campus organization thai is here lo benefit ihe students.
Without UCB Joe Jackson and ihe Slray Cats would not
have been sold out lo students only. UCB presents Celebration. Where else could one altend a U2 or a Squeeze concert
and drink beer and eat all day. W i i h all these; accomplishments I can only believe that students must appreciate UCB and Ihe people lhai spend countless hours promoting such large-scale entertainment. But there is always
the complainer. The one who whines and pules because his
favorite band is nol playing al SUNY. 1 hope thai these lew
individuals realize Ihe scope o f UCB's work and the many
siudenis who are happy with the concerts they have attended.
On Tuesday March 13th a letter was written in the ASP
about U C B . I would like lo address some of "name withheld
by request" concerns and Ihe rationale behind Ihe University
Concert Board and its inner workings.
Yes, ihe University Concert Board is here at SUNY for the
benefit of the entire sludent body, the 14,000 siudents consist
of individuals with different interesis, different hobbies, and
certainly different musical tastes'. The University Concert
Board tries lo entertain as many students as possible. This
means that a variety o f entertainment is needed on our
diverse campus. We try very hard to satisfy ihe interests of
Reggae, Jazz, Contemporary, and Rock as well as that small
• diverse group that enjoy new music. New Music is all good
and well but in the past two years upcoming groups such as
Aztec Camera and Ihe Bongos, which were featured by UCB,
only attracted small audiences. The 200 students' who
witnessed that show saw two great new bands, bin whal
about the other 13,800 students here at SUNY Albany? It
would seem quite unfair lo do another small show in this
vein. We arc nol a club trying lo maintain the same audience
every show. I fail to see how any reasonable person could
agree with additional concerts specifically Tor this minute audience. We are trying to bring to the Universily whal people
already prefer. Wc can nol entertain this small minorily at
Ihe expense o f the oilier 90 percent or our student body.
In November o f 1983 the Universily Concert Board had a
survey filled out by siudenis. The resulls are based on a poll
o f 5,000 students. 60 percent o f ihe students favored bigger
more well-known musical groups. 30 percent of the siudenis
requested more diversity, including Reggae, Jazz, and Conlemporary. Over Ihe past iwo years UCB has attempted t o ,
eater concerts lo as many students as possible. Out past six
Jiows have shown enormous musical diversity. 250 siudenis
attended ihe Hooileg licailes, 1,000 Pat Meihenv, 1,200 Hilly
Idol, 1,500 The Hand, 4(X) Eddy Grant, and 200 Aztec
Camera and Ihe Bongos. I find ihe new music show lo be in
the lowest demand. As for our upcoming concerts, SIX)
siudenis will attend ihe Ramones and 2,000 will altend the
WPYX-106 genre show o f John Cougar Mellencamp. I
sincerely believe lhai this displays concens for as many difIcrenl siudenis as possible.
Oui survey also indicaied that 50 percenl of our sludeni
body listens lo WPYX-106, more than any other station,
while 91 I M , 92 Ply, 99WGPM, and WQBK-104 share equally the other hall of our siudenis. Most siudenis only go lo
one or Iwo concerts a year and they overwhelmingly prefer
shows held in the Palace Theatre or the Gymnasium to
smaller, less popular club lype concerls. As for Joe Jackson
and Ihe Slray Cats, both were highly popular shows and certainly do not fit into the Aztec Camera/Bongos or Echo and
Ihe Bunrtymcn/Lci's Active category. I am cerlainly aware
ol what Union College is presenting. But ihe facts show thai
Ihey held Eddy Grant and Billy Idol concerls afler UCB and
arc only featuring Echo and Let's Active, Madness, and the
Thompson Twins because ihey can nol altract enough
students,to support shows like UCB's upcoming John
Cougar Mellencamp or a Pat Metheny or a Band concert
would a i i r a c . personally enjoy the new music very much,

To the Editor:
Election lime is here again al SUNY Albany. Very soon the
candidates for Ihe many offices available for next year will
bring Ihe might of their campaign publicity down upon their
fellow students. Speeches will be made, debaics will be held,
and o f course the awesome poster war will begin. In pasl
years some candidates inevitably find it necessary to tear
down and cover up the posters of other candidates. But
before Ihe familiar pallcrn is sel this year I would like lo appeal lo the candidates to re-lhink their strategy. Lei us as
"Sludent leaders" rise above these unethical practices that
have consistently left a black mark on our pasl elections. I
urge students lo become involved and run for office. But lets
make this year's election free from Ihe controversy lhai has
become the rule, not the exception for our sludeni cleciions.
As candidates let us nrcscnl our ideas and uoals in an ethical
way; as "student leaders" let us now begin lo erase the
black marks o f Ihe pasl.

to cnlcrlain as many o f our fellow students as possible. I
hope "name withheld upon requesl" will come talk lo me.
UCB wants input from as many students as possible, f here is
nothing more annoying than someone criticizing an
organization and hiding behind a pen. Wc are open-minded
and can only improve by hearing opinions up front. Out
meetings are held in Ihe Campus Center Assembly Hull al 10
p.m. every Monday. Please come and participate and open
your ears to more than your friends' opinions. Yom negative
aliunde is unjustified and shows lack o f knowledge about (lie
music industry, SA, your fellow students, and the Universily.

have concerns about U C B . Being afraid lo be up from does
not help UCB or yourself in any way.

Gross inaccuracies
To t tie Editor:
In response to Jason Friedman's March, 16th column in
lite ASP wc would like to point oul some gross inaccuracies
dial were presented.
Mr. Friedman referred lo Gary Marl as coming " o u t of
virtually nowhere lo challenge Waller Mondale," Obviously
Mr. Friedman is making a judgement without adequate
knowledge of Senator Han's on island inc. career 111 public
service. Senator l-lart worked on the John 1\ Kennedy campaign, and worked with Robert Kennedy in the Justice
deparimcnl during Ihe I960's. In 1974 he was elected to Ihe.
United Stales Senaie, and lias served on many imporiani
committees including ihe Armed Services Committee.
Mr. Friedman claims " ( H a i l ' s ) message is so broad and
iinspecific that voters interprcl it 10 sail themselves." This
suggests lhai Mr. Friedman did not bother to do much
research before writing his article. Senator Hail has proposed a specific agenda for the future of ibis country which he

has outlined" in his book A New Democracy, Some o f
Senator Hart's innovative ideas are: Individual training accounts for industrial workers, military reforms, restructuring
the present tax laws, proposing the American Defense
Education Act, and ihe Comprehensive" Equity Act to
remove sex bias in pensions, tax laws, and insurance.
Just because the media picks up on central themes does no!
mean thai the Hart campaign is without substance. In
speeches across this country Senator H a n has clearly stated
his positions over and over again. Senator Hart received little
or no media exposure unlit his second place finish in the Iowa
caucus, and since then he has used ihis media exposure to encourage debates Of issues between the candidates.
Il is the utmost in presumptuousness and arrogance for
Mr. Friedman lo predict the outcomes of several primaries.
We suggest lhai Mr. Friedman refrain from careless predictions and let ihe voters ihemselvcs decide who the best candidate is.
Wc invite Mr. Friedman to learn aboui Senator Han's
positions and proposals, and we wish he had done so before
attacking Senator H a n .

Invasion of privacy
To llic Editor:
'Students should nol have lift right o f privacy in their own
rooms. Siudenis should nol he able lo decide how much
alcohol they wish to consume al a parly because Ihey are noi
responsible enough lo know iheir limits.' These are some ol
Ihe decisions presently being made by the S U N Y A li.ilminisi ration.
l.asi semester, a committee or" siudenis, faculty and adniinistiainis worked on establishing a p o l i o lo provide
guidelines foi ihe usage ol alcohol hereon campus. While the
policy we came up with was only a iccuinmendaiion, main
ol us fell that ihe comnnlice's input would be seriously considered. This does nol appeal lo be the case.
Among olljer things established, we decided lhai kegs and
bceiballs wnuld he allowed in sludeni suiles on a proyisonal
basis. Siudenis would have the right lo give keg parlies unless
Ihey abused these rights. II a given parly became disruptive
and problems occurred then that suite would not be able to
give another party. However, il no problems came up, Ihen
Ihe suite would be free Io give as many parlies as they saw fit.
Now, two months afler ihe alcohol review commitlee submilled iis final report lo the Vice President of Sludent Affairs, Dr. Frank Pogue, we find oul thai our 'proposed
policy' has been changed. It seems thai Ihe Universily
doesn't want siudenis to be able lo have kegs in Iheir suites.
They claim il docs nol foster a " s a f e " environment. Sludeni
behavior will be regulated. This is a major injustice to
Albany's sludeni body.
Students will continue lo lose Iheir rights until Ihey stand
up for whal Ihey believe in. All sear long we have faced voter
disenchantmenl, tuition increases, cms in programs, less
leaching professionals and more leaching assistants and now
this. Whal will Ihey lake next?
On April 91 h, ihe alcohol policy will be to the
University Senate for a vole. I encorage all siudenis to stand
up for Iheir rights before Ihey have nothing left lo stand for.
If you'd like ID help please call ihe Sludeni Association, office
ai 457-.8087.
Siudenis who have reached Iheir I9lh birthday have obtained lift right lo drink. However, il seems I hat if we wish to
keep Ihis right here al SUNYA we musl speak up before Ihe
'Friday night suite parly' fades into the pasl along with lift
library hours, gym availabilly and other .services.
It's oui school and our future, I f w c d o n ' l fighl lor i l , w h o

Peaceful solution
To the Editor;
I am wriiing in response to the letter entitled "Freedom
Fighters" which appeared in Friday's /ISP.Thc ignorance of
so many " I r i s h Americans" wiih regard to Ihe IRA is
frightening. I've lived and Iravclcd extensively in Ireland. I
have family living in Bclfasi and I've talked with many Irish
people, especially ihe Northern Irish about lift situation dial
exists in iheir country, The majority of I hem were tired of Ihe
senseless, violent killings and not pro-IRA,
The I K A had iis noble beginnings many, many years ago;
the cause for which il fought was a good one. Over the years
" t h e cause" has been misconstrued and misunderstood by
many, mosl especially the Americans. I agree lhai the British
governmeni has suhjugaied and practically destroyed many
nations on ihis carl It. It has left many nations divided and
weak because of iis imperialism.
8(H) plus years of violence and haired between the Irish and
the Brjllsh has only engendered more haired, violence and
prejudice, three evils thai go hand in hand.
There is never any justification for violence and murder nol in Ireland, nol in ihe Middle Easij nol in 1:1 Salvador, nol
The only kind of solution lhai will be feasible, will be a
peaceful solution.

Never again
To Ihe Editor:
Yesterday afternoon a very disheartening event occurred.
Around 40 or so energetic students, oul of the possible hundreds, assembled In front of the Campus Center for an RZA
sponsored protest on behalf of the Soviet Jewry, but that was
Where were Ihe hundreds! Where were those same hundreds who petition in peace rallies and human rights rallies
and why were iheir hearls dormant lo ihe cries of Soviel
Jewish prisoners of conscience?! Were they too uninformed
to understand, or loo apathetic to bother?
Where were you — you Who pride yourself in Ihe wonderful edeuation you are receiving here? Here, unlike in oilier
nations, you have many human rights, including thai which
our ancestors and founders of this great nation came here lot
— religious freedom!
Soviel Jews are nol as fortunate. The Soviel Union forbids
those same liberties,-and while many are persecuted there,
Soviet Jews arc harassed because Ihey are Jewish. They are
prohibited any religious education, while religion is taught.
They arc imprisoned and lose their jobs because Ihey plea for
rights lhai now exclude only them!
There is no room for indifference here, and do nol think
lhai you arc nol needed, cither. Oct involved! Wc must succeed! God-forbid we should fail and there should befall on
the Soviet Union a similar horrifying catastrophe comparable
only lo the Holocaust of World War Two itself. Doh'l be
silent! .S7A' MILLION

Holiday observance
To the Editor;
In response 10 James Sluniey's lellc'i concerning the
necessity 10 return to SUNYA on fiaslcr Sunday, I feel that
several misconceptions must be cleared up.
(.lasses begin at 12:21) on Monday, April 21, allowing sufficient lime lo navel Monday tnoining, alicr the observance
of Faster Sunday. SUNYA's fall lei in does not begin line ill
in (let to accomodate observance ^\ Rush llashanah. flic fall
1983 term began before the Jewish High Holy Days, and
classes were suspended lo allow observation of Ihe holidays.
Yom Kippur is ihe most holy day on the Jewish calendar,
(.'lasses were suspended hue Friday afternoon this pasl Fall,
while Yom Kippur began al sundown of that day. While
Christians' may find travelling on their most holy day demeaning, Jews are prohibited from travelling on (heir's*. My
home is a three hour drive from Albany, and I was faced with
the choice of travelling on Yom Kippur, or remaining in
Albany. Incidentally, the lale hour at which classes were
suspended caused me lo miss the Kol Nidre service (llic
holiest o f Jewish services), while I waited in traffic at the
George Washington Bridge.
I cannot agree more wiih Mr. Stanley, Ihe students al
S U N Y A deserve more consideration. I must however lake
offense at suggestions ihat the Universily makes concessions
for iis Jewish students (also sec Ihe letter concerning UAS
and the observance of Lent), and ignores ihe needs of oihers.

Appalled reader
To the Editor:
We're writing in response lo Joe Fuseo's article "Leave It
To Ihe Fools and the Irishmen." M r . Fuseo's aricle was
nothing more Ihan an ethnic slur against the Irish, and in our
opinion, very poor journalism. We are also appalled at llic
ASP for printing such prejudicial and unsubstantiaicd
material. A n article like this, if anything, belongs on a
slander sheet not a supposedly objective newspaper such as
the ASP.
To imply that no one famous has ever emerged form
Ireland is far from correct. Many heroes of American society
have Irish roots. May wc suggest M r . Fusco look up ihe
backgrounds iA many of our American presidents,
legislators, musicians, actors, authors, etc. With ihe help of
Ihe Irish people, as well as llic Italians and all the oilier immigrants, ihis nation has become what it is today. Joe's
defamation of Si. Patrick is uncalled for. By legend, St.
Patrick chased the snakes from Ireland. Factually, he is
known for spreading Christianity lliroughoul thai land. The
latter is what earned him his sainthood and his reverence
among the Irish people. This reverence is displayed on March
St. Patrick is not ihe only Irish hero. Bobby Sands and his
fellow patriots are contemporary heroes. These men loved
their country enough to give Iheir lives for it. Ireland meant
more lo ihcni than green beer and kissing a stone. ,
We agree with Mr. Fusco that the true meaning o f St.
Patrick's day has been twisted ill its transition from Irish lo
American culture. Whal is a religious holiday in Ireland (ihe
pubs are closed) is nothing more Ihan excuse to gel drunk' lot
The author's, right to free speech should noi include the
right lo defame an ethnic group and their traditions.
Joe, may wc suggest that next time you write an article you
gel your facts straight and put your prejudices aside. It's all
right lo knock a practice, but not a people.

problems," said Harrison. *±lt was
a tough position for Quad B o a r d , "
he added.
" O u r parties are campus-wide.
We get guys that just hang out at
kegs and drink, we had a fighl going o n . . . as far as having a security
system, there were loo many peop l e , " Harrison said.
According lo Abelow, he resigned on Sunday, March 11 and was
informed Ihc next day by Longendyke thai he was being referred. " I
wanted to show thai il had nolhing
lo do with Quad Board. I had told
Alan I resigned before I gol referr e d , " he said.
Abelow received a Idler Monday,
March 19 from Longendyke which
described the events o f the parly,
Abelow said. The letter staled lhal
as Ihc parly progressed there were
problems with ils management, and
lhal .ihc flagroom was packed
beyond capacity, Abelow added.
" 1 think lhal Idler would never
have been written If 1 had had ihc
license," Abelow said. "They said
we should have shm the tioors (lo
keep more people from coming in).
People would have crawled through
Ihc windows. I hail Mi or 40 people
working. I coukln'i ask litem lo do

According lo Abelow, ai I he iasi

were more people at lhal party and
the only complaint we got was that
the floor hadn't been vaeciiumed."

with them all year and developed a

" I think that Alan should have
maybe dealt with Quad Board at a
personal levei. They're trying to
make an example o f Ross. I think
Ross has done a lot for the quad.
The benefits o f referring him are
not there, too many minuses go
a l o n g , " he added.
Schaffer said, " T h e parly was
ok. It did get a little crowded but
Ihc people on Stale Quad have
nowhere else to go. I think they
tried to blow up Ihc situation."

'Vacuum' in mid-management jobs predicted
New York, NY
caliber" college grads apparently
have (urned down enough low-level
and middle-level managemenl job
offers recently lo cause some
employers to worry about a "midmanagement vacuum" during the
next few years, an employment consulting firm says.
In "ari informal phone study of
50 of our corporate clients,"
Goodrich and Sherwood Co., a
New York consulting firm, round
the corporations arc having trouble
convincing some graduating seniors
to accept jobs that may take them
to factories in non-metropolitan
areas, may leave them with "loo
many bosses" over Ihem, or that
threaten to conflict wilh "favored
lifestyles," explained Jack Oow,
Goodrich and Sherwood's public
relations consultant. "Mosl of
these guys," Gow said, "warn to
start al the lop, and then work up a .
little higher."
Gow says his firm's clients —
which he describes as "all Fortune
500 companies" — are finding even
higher salaries aren't luring top
grads lo jobs "al plants in
geographic areas where ihcy can't
go sailboaling or golfing or skiing."
The only companies nol "finding
il difficult lo lake these midmanagcmeni jobs that arc now
opening again," Gow pointed out,
arc some high-tech industries.
"High tech is Ihc glamour industry
now." he explained, "like plastics
was 20 years ago."
Despite companies' complaints,
other officials who help place
students in jobs after graduation
haven't noticed students turning
down many'job offers.
"I'm nol aware of that happening," said Linda Pcngilly of the
College Placement Council, a
Bethlehem, Pa., association of
campus placement officers from
around Ihc country. "Il could be
ihat it's not happening, or il could
be Ihat it is happening and people
just haven't starlcd grumbling
about il," she said.
In its most recent survey, released
in Oclobcr, the CPC "found jusl
Ihc opposite," she pointed oul.
"Students were accepting recruiting
offers earlier in ihe year" to allay
the insecurities of the recessionary
job market.
Pcngilly said SPS's hard dale
about this year's job market won't
be available until late March.

somewhere, he commented. "Bui
we got the students down there once
and Ihcy thought Ihey were all
through," said Tierney.
The legislators did nol like it
when they were pressed wilh thai
number of students flooding ihc offices according to Tierney. "If a
legislator was for ihc tuition hike
last year he did nol like 3,000
sludents pressuring him lo eliminate
il," said Tierney.
This year SASU has laken a different approach and il is concentrating on consistent lobbying
pressure, according to Tierney.
"Wc are going down ihis year wilh
smaller groups on a consistent basis
and who are knowledgeable and
forceful," said Tierney.
Even though SA President Rich
Schaffer commented ihat he considered last year's mass lobbying effective "...those 3,000 students
could go to Ihc polls," he admitlcd
thai there seemed to be a sense of
ineffectiveness when it was all over.
"I turned around to Mike Curso
and said, 'so now whal do wc d o . ' "
11 was difficult to keep a sustained interest by the students, according lo Schaffer. "You gol people
excited lo go all out one day but
there was no follow-up," he said.
Last June the question was raised
by Schaffer and SASU as to
whether ihc student lobbying approach should be changed. Schaffer
said that it was decided thai if ihcy
could gel 5-6 sludents lo sit down
wilh legislators, especially sludents
who were 'intellectually' informed
il could be more effective;. Another
risk witli the mass lobbying approach, said Schaffer, is that there
is a possibility (hat no one would
show up; "we would look like
idiots," said Schaffer,
Still another problem with the
mass influx o f students to the
legislature last year, according to
Schaffer, was educating students
about what they were faced wilh
and the specific issues they were
lobbying about, "Of the 3,000
students there we might have had
200 that really knew Ihc specifics of
the issues. Tile uneducated groups
of students did not Impress the
legislators and as such the
legislators had problems inking
Ihem seriously," he said.Students

A total of $12.3 million was spent
in 1983 by groups lobbying the stale
legislature in Albany, according to
Schum. This was a 28 percent increase from the previous year when
$9.6 million was reported to have
been spent, he said.
This increase is ihc result of a
more aggressive program by I lie
unregistered lobbyists, according to
Schum. Once a lobbying concern
reaches a $2,000 I hrcshold on spending, il is mandatory for them lo
register with the NYS Commission
on Lobbying and efforts to identify
unregistered lobbying concerns are
made by talking to Ihc legislators
inquiring what groups have approached them, he said.

Tuition increase unlikely next year
Fink, Anderson say no to Cuomo's proposed $200 hike
By Steve Fox
In what student leaders termed a
"major student victory" Assembly
Speaker Stanley Fink and Senate
Majority Leader Warren Anderson
came out against Governor Mario
Cuomo's proposed 1984-85 $200
tuition increase for SUNY. The two
also supported an increase in TAP
The announcement came alter
legislative leaders had been meeting
for several weeks on Cuomo's proposal, according to Anderson's
press secretary Dick Matthew. "It is
his intention and the assembly's intention not to increase tuition," he
added. Matthew noted that the
budget details are still being worked
on and that complete figures will be
coming out in a "day or two."
Neither Fink nor his press
secretary Dave Langdon could be
reached for comment.
"Things are looking very good,"
said President for the Student
Association of the State University
(SASU), Jim Tierney. He added
that Ihe statements by the two
leaders are "top budget priorities."
He noted lhat the final budget will
not be passed until April 3.
Tierney praised the lobbying efforts of students from across the
SUNY system, saying, "Students
kicked in and pushed hard." Informed students have been lobbying
legislators in groups of fifly since
Cuomo proposed his budget
January 17. He added Ihai SASU is
a coalition and lhat everybody
helped out.
Student Action -Committee
(SAC) Chair Steve Gawley called
the announcement a "clear cut student victory." He called the announcement, "basically a final
decision." No decision has been
made on dorm rent increases, he added.
Gawley claimed the consistent
lobbying efforts headed by SAC
and Student Association jSA) was
more effective than Ihe mass lobbying effort put forth last year.
Gawley credited the effectiveness
with having, "smaller, better
educated lobbyists."
He noted that these informed
students saw more than half the
Senate and assembly in its lobbying
efforts. "People in Ihe assembly
complimented us because we came
armed with the facts," he added.
He explained that SAC and SA
knew the budget issues and intelligently discussed proposals with
legislators. "NYPIRO (New York
Public Interest Research Group)
then came in and proposed alternative funding," he added. He
praised NYPIRG's efforts, saying
that they helped a lot in educating
legislators. She said that legislators
were "feeling the pressure," from
lobbyists, adding that, "We could
really tell they were harassed by the
"I was really impressed by the
people who were down there," Rotimann said. She added that lobbying had something to do with the
leaders' actions but noted that the

students as lobbyists. "What
separates students from lobbyists is
information and technique," emphasized Gawley.
NYPIRG project coordinator
Paul Herrick said thai he was "real
confident" that Ihe tuition increase
is not going to happen this year. He
added that he was pleased with ihe
.success of Ihe student lobbying. He
noted lhat the belter organization
and smaller groups helped, saying
that, "Ihis is the way NYPIRG has
done it before.".
Lisa Roltmann, a NYPIRG
member, was one of the organizers
in NYPIRG, who along wiih SASU
and SA coordinated efforts in sending 200 students Tuesday from
campuses across Ihe state lo lobby
legislators "realized that Ihis would
have been the fourth increase in a
row," Another reason she gave for
Ihe legislators siding with the
students was that some of them
were mad at Cuomo for sanctioning

SA President Rich Scnaffer
claimed thai the "legislature has
reaffirmed what SUNY really
stands for...low-cost, quality
education." He also stressed Ihe effective lobbying procedure used Ihis
year, "Ihey were prepared for us
because we knew wlial we were lalking about," he slated,
Scnaffer explained lhat the personalized lobbying laclic proposed
by SASU was effective because
Banned poster causes SA candidate to file suit
By Jane Anderson
Student Association presidential hopeful
Bill McCann has filed suit with SA Supreme
Court charging that one of his campaign
posters was unfairly disqualified by SA Elections Commissioner, Tom Busby.
SA Supreme Court Chief Justice Steve
Perrin has scheduled a hearing for Sunday
McCann's poster, Busby contended, is
The poster refers lo inlcral struggles
reportedly taking place in SA between SA
President Rich Scnaffer and Vice President
Jeff Schneider.
The poster, according lo McCann, said
"Rich vs. Jeff/Jeff vs. Rich. Who wins?
Nobody. Who loses? The students. Who
needs power struggles? Vole for Bill McCann."
McCann said in his petition that he followed election guidelines when writing the
poster, and that the poster did not conflict

with election regulations. He asked lhat the
court allow him lo display the posters, and
Ihai they establish a committee to clarify Ihe
election regulations.
The sequence of events leading up to the
banning of McCann's poster is under dispute
by almost everyone involved.
"The poster isn't up yet," said McCann.
"There is no legitimate way" Busby could
have seen it, contended McCann. "He's just
going on the word of other people," McCann
said. "Busby was approached by several people who told him the poster was slanderous,"
McCann continued.
Busby concurred that he did not see the
poster prior to banning it. "I asked Bill (McCann) what it said, and he read it to me,"
over the telephone, Busby explained.
According to McCann, however, Busby informed him lhat Ihe poster would be banned,
and McCann then told him whal was on it.
Busby said he banned the poster because
he "didn't want other people's names
slandered." He emphasized thai he had to
"draw Ihe line somewhere."
The SA Election Regulation Act states,
"No person shall...unfairly or unethically attack a candidate or any part of his
McCann's poster is "not that harmful,"
noted Busby, but it "could only lead to worse
things" being used during the campaigns.
"The poster was supposed to bring out
what I'm running against, which is the petty
politics in SA," asserted McCann. He contended that the poster was not slanderous.
"1 don't know what the poster said," Vice
President Jeff Schneider maintained. "If it
said 'Rich Scnaffer (SA President) can't
communicate' it's no good (according to SA
Election Regulations). If It said 'We need
communication' then it's fine," explained
"There is some question" in the election

record againsl him, said Schneider, and this
is what Perrin should concentrate on in his
decision, Schneider added.
Schneider said that in his opinion, "a candidate should be praised or criticized for his
The posters "were approved (for podium
posting at the Campus Center Information
Desk) last Thursday," said McCann.
McCann maintained that his posters had
been approved by Ihe correct methods, as
staled by the election guidelines.
Busby said that he is in charge of deciding
the rules regarding election posters.
"Schneider put Ihe decision (about whether
lo disqualify McCann's poster) in my
hands," he maintained.
"Nowhere in the election regulations does
It slate lhat my posters have to meet the approval of the election commission," said McCann's petition.
Busby stressed lhat the decision lo ban the
poster was "completely" his, but said that he
had discussed Ihe issue with Schneider "just
to okay it with him." Busby said lhat
