N o b e l Prize-winning author Saul Bellow
"We give our souls lo the outside world. "
Bellow kicks off Writer's
Institute to packed crowd
By Rick Swanson
Distinguished writer and Nobel Prize
winner Saul Bellow formally launched the
SUNYA Writers Institute at Albany
Thursday night with a lecture entitled
" T h e Wrilcr and Ihe W o r l d . "
"Writers and criminals have much in
c o m m o n , " said Bellow, because like
tawles criminals, the fantasies o f writers
arc also lawless, thai is, without bounds.
Speaking before a standing room only
crowd in the Campus Center Ballroom,
Bellow suggested thai a writer's world is a
solitary one, removed from the resl of the
world. " I l is a great strain to become like
others who lead normal lives," he said
referring l o what he considers the
unrestrained, or "lawless" imagination of
"Writers spend a lot o f lime alone- a
writer is a solitary beast," said Bellow. He
asserted that although his work has been
widely acclaimed throughout the world,
he is comfortable by himself.
Bellow began his speech by reading a
portion o f his soon to be released book
titled Him With His Foot In His Mouth.
He then answered questions from a panel
of professors from SUNYA's English
The panel consisted of SUNYA professors William Kennedy and Sarah
Cohen, as well as associate director of the
Writers Institute Tom Smith. Cohen, who
has followed Bellow's writings for the past
twenty years, has.wrillen a biography on
him. Kennedy, a former student o f
Bellow, was the recipient o f the 1984
Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for his reeeni
work Iron weed.
Indicating that America is still a niching
pot of different cultures, Bellow told the
audience ihat there are "Americans that
arc aliens and al the same lime aliens I hat
are Americans."
"Nationalistic ideas of pure culture arc
historically u n t r u e , " said Bellow. He
pointed out that there is no such thing as a
typical American, rather, this is " a hybrid
w o r l d " and everyone's culture makes
them slightly different.
Responding to a question from Kennedy about the " n o i s e " or distractions o f
Ihe modern w o r l d , Bellow said that people
should try " t o sec through Ihe noise" in
order lo gel a better grip on reality.
Student Association presidential candidates Rich Schaffer and Tim Hallock will
fight it out in a runoff election this Monday
and Tuesday after a lighi race on April 16
and 17 in which neither candidate drew the
required majorily of more than 50 percent of
ihe voters.
Schaffer, the incumbent, garnered 856
voles, or 46 percent, narrowly edging
Hallock, who received 800 voles, or 43 percent. Bill McCann gol 139 voles while Willie
Jones trailed with 79.
In the runoff, ihe candidate who receives a

C'eniral Council elections for students living on'Colonial Quad and off-campus were
Invalidated'. Both ejections will be rerun I his
Monday and Tuesday. Regarding the Colonial Quad election, Busby explained he accidentally left Felicia Stanley's name off Ihe
ballot. In the off-campus election, Busby
said he inadverlcnlly included Jackie Swingle's name for Central Council although
she was not running for thai office.
Busby said that no one has contested any
of the oilier races. There have, however, been
several complainis about Ihe way elections
were run. " L i k e any oilier election in Ihe
past," Busby said, " w e had our share of problems, menial errors on my pari, and, as
always, on ihe pari of ihe candidates."
Some candidates complained thai ihe Indian Quad polling area opened 45 minutes
laic on the Tuesday night of elections. Busby
said I his occurred because there was only one
set o f keys to open the voting booths so he

Several Hallock supponers were reported
to have violated SA's elections policy by
campaigning on the Colonial Quad dinner
line on an election night. "What Ihcy (the
campaigners) did, Hallock said, "was totally
independent of anything I said and I had no

" W c give our souls to the outside
w o r l d , " said Bellow. But he also warned
that unless one is careful, one can be
manipulated and " I h e world can do what
il wants with our souls."
Bellow suggested that reading is a way
o f spending time with yourself, and a way
to evade the " n o i s e . " People musl all try
to fight " t h e increasing dehumanizaiion
of our w o r l d " and develop their inncV
selves more, he added.
Saul Bellow was born in Quebec and
later moved l o Chicago. He received his
bachelor's degree in sociology and anthropology from Northwestern University. He has published many books; his

Soviets capture valley
New Delhi, Intlia
(AP)AI'ghan and Soviet troops overran the
bases o f a major guerilla group lucsday and
captured the strategic Panjshcr valley, which
controls vital supply routes in Afghanistan,
Radio Kabul reported, ,
The claim followed Western diplomatic
reports that Soviet and Afghan forces had
launched a new offensive against Panjshcr,
where rebel forces resisted six previous
assaults in Ihe past four years.
In Washington, U.S. government sources
had also reported that an offensive was under
way. They said the reblcs, who are trying to
topple the Soviet-installed regime in
AFghanistan, had dealt a severe blow to the
Soviets' supply line by blowing up the Mullock Bridge.
A Western diplomat, speaking in New
Delhi on condition he not be identified by
name or nationality, said Soviet aircraft on
kSaiurday began high-altitude bombing of
the Panjshcr, a 70-mlle long valley north of
Kabul, the Afghan capital.
A year-long truce between Ihe Soviets and
Masud expired in January and a spicing offensive was anticipated.
Sis largcj-scalc Soviet campaigns over the
past three years have failed to wrest control
o f the valley, which Masoud uses uses as a
base for guerilla strikes in olher regions.

The board of athletic control would have

Tierney expressed fears Ihal an athletics fee
could lead lo "fees for everything."
" N o b o d y thinks we can a f f o r d " Division I
sporls, maintained Tierney. He said thai an
athletic fee controlled by the administration
would most likely go up, and added thai a
school would need at least $350 per student
each year to parlicipalc in Division I
sporls.Through the mandatory student activity fee, each student currently pays approximately $25 per year lo fund athletics.
Murabilo said that there is no way lo fund
Division I sporls through the current or proposed fee structures. " I l would lake a great
influx of money," he said.
Division I sporls teams would be funded
through a combination o f many different
sources, including ticket sales and media
coverage, explained Murabilo.
Murabilo stressed thai i f the new policy
was approved, "just a few campuses" would
move up lo Division I sporls. " 9 0 percent o f
the campuses will stay just the way l l i c y a r e , "
he declared.
Each campus will decide for themselves
whether they will sponsor Division I learns,
said Murabilo.
Murabilo said thai S U N Y A would be a
candidate for Divison 1 sporls because of ils
location and the proposed building o f a new
Civic Center.
The Task Force recommended changing
ihe Board of Trustees policy to allow
"grants-in-aid based primarily on a student's
athletic ability," according lo the report.
"Should a needy student be forced to subsidize a non-needy student's education?"
asked Tierney.
Tierney called Ihe proposal a "band-aid
solution" to mask cuts in faculty and
resources" in Ihe SUNY system. He asserted
ihal programs such as health services and
women's safely should be higher priorities
for SUNY, rather than ' " b i g lime athletics."
Tierney, w h o i s a full voting member o f the
Board of Trustees, said ihal he has the support o f student leaders SUNY-wide, as well
as many o f the 13 Board members.

issue was "difficult lo assess." He said Ihal

GSEU members vote to affiliate
with Communications Workers
By Alicia Cimbora
The SUNY Graduate
Employees Union (GSEU), following a
recommendation in March from the
GSEU Affiliation Committee, voted in
favor of becoming affiliated with the
Communications Workers o f America
( C W A ) , according lo GSEU member
Connie LaPorta.
The vole was held on Wednesday and
Thursday in Ihe Campus Cenier and
Draper Hall at S U N Y A , as well as at Ihe
other three University centers, Buffalo,
Stony Brook and Binghamlon.
At SUNYA, 19 members voted in favor
of affiliation, and 4 against. LaPorta said
Ihe votes al oilier schools were also in supporl of affiliation, but she didn't have
specific numbers.
The GSEU is a SUNY-wide organization which represents the 3500-4000

According to Mark Pellilt, a GSEU
statewide organizer, GSEU is seeking affiliation because " i t ' s good lo have the
support of a larger union. The C W A has
experience and can offer us financial support and the best background training."
The political influence of a larger union
is also very important, Pellilt said. " W e
want more bargaining power with the
state,' LaPorta added.
When asked why the C W A was chosen,
Pellilt said, " W e talked with Tour different unions, and chose Ihe C W A
because we felt il was the best run union
internally and they offered us the best deal
with regard to autonomy." According to
LaPorta, "(Under the C W A ) we'll be

Dutchess struggling to find market at SUNYA
By Rick Swanson
Despite heavy on-campus promotion, the Dutchess restaurant, " i s
not making money" and may be
closed i f business docs not pick up
next fall, according to manager
Lester Heines.
The Dutchess recently closed
after its first year in operation, having failed to make its break-even
point even once.
Heines said the Dutchess needed
100 patrons a night to suceed, but
that Ihe greatest number o f diners
ever attending in one night was 91.
The restaurant, which was
located in Ihe Patroon Room Friday evenings, provides an alternative to dining oul o f f campus,
and is managed by University Auxiliary Services (LIAS).
Though the first year o f Ihe Dutchess' opening " d i d not bring as
much business as expected," Heines
hopes that the restaurant will gain
popularity next year.
The Dutchess is a restaurant complete with waiters, waitresses, a
hostess and a bar. Patrons arc
treated as though they were at any
high class restaurant. Heines said,
they arc greeted, seated and then
have their order taken.
"Most customers come during
the first h o u r , " said Heines. He
speculated that many students like
lo cat early on Friday nighls, and
then go out.
I M S General Manager
Norbcrt Zahm said he hopes that
next semester will be more successful for The Dutchess. Afler extensively advertising in the Albany
Siudenl Press and table tent ads in
cafeterias, Zahm said he Is "puzzled why the attendance is so l o w . "
" W e hope to build our customer
base for next year,' said Zahm,
p o i n t i n g out that he thinks
customers enjoyed themselves while
eating at the Dutchess.
Before the Dutchess, I M S ran
the Mouse Trap, a wine and cheese
shop which was open Friday and
Salurday nights until I A M in the
Patroon Room.
Heines said, however, that the
Mouse Trap's business "interfered
somewhat with the R a t , " S U N Y A ' s

campus center.
Students granted $300 rent abatement
after suing landlord for heat shortage

By Susan Milligan
Three S U N Y A students have won $300 in rent
abatement because their landlord failed to provide
adequate heat.
Albany City Court Justice E. David Duncan determined afler a March 2.1 trial that Ihe students!
landlord, Ajay K. Sanghi, had violated the "warranty
of habitability." That law requires landlords to ensure
that no conditions exist in their rentals that arc
dangerous lo the life, safety or health Of the tenants.
The students, Frannic Fiss, Boh Dunleavyand Leslie
Adlcr, claimed their Delaware Ave. apartment was Inadequately heated during November and December of
198.1, and January through March of 1984.
According lo Student Legal Services attorney Mark
S. Mishlcr, who handled the case lor Ihe students,
Sanghi was repeatedly informed of Ihe heal problem
by Ihe lenanls and Ihe Albany Cily Bureau of Code
The lack of heat was due lo " a n aniiqiiaicd healing
system which does not cope well with the Albany
wlnlcrs," Duncan said in his decision. Sohfihl al one
point gave Ihe tenants three electric space healers, bin
they did not provide enough heal for the apartment.
The Ihrce students withheld March 1984 rail lo
force Sanghi lo fix Ihe furnace or otherwise provide
heal lor ihe apartment.
Sanghi sued ihe lenanls for failure lo pay rem. Ihe
sludeiils filed a counterclaim against Sanghi lor $200
per month for each monih ihe healing problem existed. The lenanls also demanded reimbursement for
heating bills paid lo Niagara Mohawk during ihose
Duncan ordered the students to pay March rent, but
also granted them partial rent abatement for the first
three months o f Ihe year.
Duncan determined thai the " w a r r a n t y o f
habilabilily" was violated only during Ihe months of
January through March, and awarded the lenanls $ 100
a month compensation for a total of $300.
The lenanls arc now only responsible for the $250
difference between their March rent and the abatement
awarded Ihcm by Ihe court.
In addition, Snnghi's warrant of eviction was set
" A l t h o u g h the lack of heal was not so drastic as to
he life-ihreaiening," Duncan said, " i l would appear
from the evidence that for Ihe months o f Jnnuaty,Fcbruary and March of 1984 the lack of heat was
enough to adversely affect Ihe lifestyle of the tenants
who lived in Ihe apartment."
And while Sanghi demons!rated " g o o d f a i l h " a l the
Irial, Duncan said, " g o o d faith alone is not sufficient

fantasies is very h i g h , and
sometimes sexual thoughts arc a
constant obsession throughout Ihe
day. Barlow said he believes Ihal If
someone has a recurrent fantasy 70
lo 80 percent of Ihc lime, he or she
will act on it.
The content of fantasies does not
make t hem abnormal, Barlow said,
adding thai Masters and Johnson,
Ihc leading researchers on sexual
behavior, sludicd boll) homosexual
and helcrosexuals' and heterosexuals' sexual thoughts.
" I l used lo be that a heterosexual
who had a homosexual fantasy
would be diagnosed as a latent
homosexual," he said. Today, it is
considered "perfectly n o r m a l " for
heterosexuals lo have homosexual
fantasies and vice versa.
However, this lypc of fantasy is
u n c o m m o n , asserted B a r l l o w .
" T h e arc accidental," he said, and
added thai these ihoughls can be
iriggcred by movies or suggestions.
Barlow also researched ihe sexual
fantasies sexual deviants for the
Sexuality Research Program, a
branch o f the clinic lhat he heads.
Subjects were referred lo Ihc clinic
for study and assessment by menial
health professionals according lo
The clinic docs have a treatment
program for sex offenders, and
'sometimes refer lis patients to the
New York Slalc Psychialirc Insiiiuic al Columbia University,
which is closing down this summer.
"There arc few Ircalmenl in Ihe
correctional system or outside il for
sex offenders," Barlow said.
Barlow and his staff arc currently
studying the problems of male Impotence and female sexual dysfunction, he said. Barlow said the clinic
works primarily lo decide if a problem is psychological or physical, or
some combination of both.
The psychological causes vary
grcally among both men and
women, Barlow explained, bin the
factors thai maintain impotence are
more specific. Men who are impoIcnl will focus on other things
rather than sexual cues during
lovemaking, he said, adding, "ilieir
minds will jump from one topic 10
another, hoi all of ihc'ni sexual."
Among women, the predominant
factors are stressful or tnnunalic experiences involving sex and negative
attitudes concerning sex.
Organic factors maintaining impotence range for bolli men and
women from side effects of various
m e d i c a t i o n s , such as a n t i hypertensive drugs, 10 a hidden
vascular Insufficiency, which
prevents bipod from flowing lo the
genitals, explained Barlow.
The patients, who range ill age
from 30 to 60, are referred lo Ihe
clinic by private physicians, usually
urologists. Control subjects are,
also, used, according lo Dan
Abrahamson, Ihe Chief Graduate
Student on staff, to compare the
difference in subjective and
physical arousal. SUNYA students
have been used as control subjects

Political experts debate
socialist, capitalist ideals
By Aileen Brown
Capitalism, nol socialism, is incompalible
wilh democracy, according lo SUNYA
Political Science Professor Bruce Miroff.
Miroff participated in a forum Wednesday
night which pilled professors defending the
"freedom" oT capitalism against those promoting the "democracy" of socialism.
The forum, which was sponsored by the
Democratic Socialists of America and
mediated by group member Brian Van Cirol,
began wilh a statement from history professor Donald Birn, who defended the theory
of a democratic socialist government, which
would combine all the democratic ideals in a
socialist government.
"Socialism lo me is a method to back
democracy" Birn began. "I'm concerned
with increasing freedom, nol in an esoteric
sense, but in the very real sense in which we
understand freedom lo mean today."
Birn went on to explain the backgrounds
of socialism, and how certain events
developed the idea and theory of socialism.
According lo Birn, Iherc are two basic nolions of socialism which were indicated by
two major revolutions, the French Revolution, and the Industrial Revolution. "The
French Revolution was a bailie for freedom
and democracy," he said, "And the Industrial Revolution was one of technological
promise. These two revolutions, lo an extent,
reconstructed polities. We have lo grapple
wilh Ihc inpact of these two revolutions."
Birn ended his initial statement by stressing
the impact and effects socialism has on society. He emphasized the benefits to be derived
from a socialist form of government- the increased freedom of choice in certain areas, a
greater ability to plan govcrnmenl, and more
benefits for a greater number of people.
"We have to sec socialism as an extension
of democracy" Birn staled. "Socialism can
extend democracy while keeping democratic
freedoms. There is a choice before us in the
ncxl century, and we have to ask ourselves if
the choices we make are ones thai will increase our freedom and enhance our lives.
Socialism, like democracy, is Ihc appropriate
response for Ihc century ahead."
Speaking in opposition to Birn was History
Department Professor Richard Kendall. Kendall defended capilalism in terms of Ihe opportunity it offers. Kendall based his theory
defending capitalism on the adage "ifil ain't
broke, don'l fix it," saying that capilalism
had worked for our society successfully in Ihc
"I'm primarily intcrcsled in freedom,"
Kendall began, "freedom, and mobility.
America is a place of mobility, you can starl
al Ihe bottom and move up. In terms of
freedom and mobility, this sociely has provided a great deal of bolh. These are primarily economic questions, but mosl of them arc
also part of a larger social and political
Kendall also talked about capitalism and
sociely saying thai capitalism is an imponant
outlet for social energy. "It seems lo me lhat
it is important to Ihc system and our
economic functioning lhat capilalism is compcliiivc. To me, competition is important. It
produces belter goods and service, and
enables us to give vcnl to our energies. This
provides for a healthier society," he explained.
In terms of Ihc future, Kendall cautioned
lhat we should learn from our mistakes and
proceed slowly. "In looking ahead, 1 think
we should proceed cautiously, and very slowly. Any adjustments we make should be
made slowly and wilh caution," he said also.
Miroff advocated socialism, stressing the
tics bclwcen socialism and democracy.
"There is a strong relationship between
capitalism, socialism and democracy" Miroff
said. "To link socialism wilh democracy is
considered unusual, odd. Mosl Americans
equate socialism wilh undemocratic and
authoritative rule. It is nol. It is also nol
socialism that is incompatible with
democracy, it is capitalism thai is incompatible. Capitalism was once compatible with
democracy, when it used 10 be small scale
and genuinely competitive, wilh numerous
Miroff asserted lhat capilalism as a competitive systcrm no longer exisls, thai it has
been replaced by a non-compeiilive form of
corporale capitalism. "We now have a
system of corporale capitalism," Miroff
"It is dominated by large corporale entities
which have a stranglehold over democracy,"
he explained. "Corporations in America enjoy a privileged position in bolh business and
politics. Corporations in our society make
the critical decisions. Our modern government is forced lo be solicitors of Ihe corporate sector," said Miroff.
Miroff said that nol only docs business
have a structural bias in society, it also controls society in indirect ways by contributing
to campaigns, lobbying and controlling the
mass media. It is this domination of business,
said Miroff, that prevents capilalism from
being democratic, since the people's interests
arc not primary.
"The key problem is lhat the primary
questions of society such as work life,
technology, distrlblion of income, wealth
and properly are not part of Ihe public agenda under capitalism" Miroff said.
"Capitalism daocs not allow these decisions
to be made by Ihe people."
Miroff concluded his introductory statement by advocating Democralic Socialism in
response lo Ihe problems of government and
scoiely today. "Democratic Socialism is taking the idea of democracy seriously," he said.
"It is not a regime to control everything, it is
a way to open up deomcracy in all areas
where it has been driven out. It is taking the
public control over investmenl decisions out
of the hands of Ihe capitalist elite. It is new
forms of economic life such as cooperatives
and employee ownership of the means of
produclion. It is more freedom, more equal
rights," Miroff contended.
To conclude the introductory statements,
Political Science Professor Morion
Schoolman argued for the Capitalists side.
Schoolman said lhai the debale is not between capilalism and socialism, it is a chance
lo break away from the dichotomy between
the Iwo theories.
"Socialism and capitalism can be
assimilated," Schoolman asserted. "It is imperative, however, that we rclain Ihc prac9*-

Life after Mayfest
ext week there will be a special runoff
election for SA president between Rich
Schaffer and Tim Hallock. The turnout
at the first election was ridiculously low, and
runoffs are known to be even worse. If people don't take an interest and turn out to
vote, the big victory will go to apathy and
disenchantment, and the big losers will be the
SA affects every aspect of life on campus.
Almost $1 million of our mandatory student
activity fee goes into the SA budget. This
money funds over 80 student groups, from
WCDB and Concert Board to ASUBA JSC-
Hillel and Middle Earth. It also goes to funding intercollegiate athletics. SA is the avenue
for almost all student activities, and the president is the person in charge of it.
Aside from heading SA, the president is the
leading student representative and advocate.
In this role s/he works on issues ranging from
alcohol policy, bus fee, women's safety and
dorm robberies to fighting against tuition
hikes and for polling places on campus.
There is hardly any area of our lives that goes
unaffected by the work of the SA president.
Yet over four-fifths of us did not,bother to
step off the dinner lines or into the campus
center and cast a vote for who will lead our
pervasive student government next year,
As always, SA has had its share of political
problems this year. Many people see "petty
politics" or "student apathy" on campus and
turn away in cynicism. But the solution, like
the problem, begins with us, and there is no
better place to start than in the ballot box,
Listen to the candidates, find out where
they stand. Talk to people. And cast a vote.

Defining our national interest
Human suffering. As a result of political conflicts such
suffering has become an everday reality. In many instances
our nation, Ihc United Slates of America, has played a role,
often an important role, in the suffering brought about by
these conflicts. How we arc concerned says a lot about the
potential outcome for foreign cultures, often we define our
involvement in terms of our "interests." Just what our "interests" arc has been a dormant question with an evasive
Alexander F. Ross
We who hold the concept of democracy sacred often turn
our face to nations that admire our system and wish to
become democracies. Instead of taking the time to forge
strong allies and strong democratic nations, with the opportunities and rights we possess, we support regimes who in
turn will support our "interests." Often, this means not a
democratic structure but individual rulers, and dictators.
Moreover, while our nation indeed benefits from the cheap
labor and raw materials of other nations, the people native to
those lands go uneducated, malnourished and often risk their
lives if they protest these conditions. In many instances our
constitutional laws which provide the cornerstone of our
domestic democracy arc disregarded in Ihc foreign policy and
practice of our government. Frequently, our government
takes these nonhumanilarian, nondcmocraiic actions, in the
name of our national "interest," in ihc name of the domestic
practice we value so dearly.
Examples of these phenomena are many, but some arc in
need of immediate review. As Ihc American public remains
on the sideline, unaware of our government's activities, people in countries on every continent are living under oppressive systems and conditions. South Africa, for example.
How have we helped influence representational democracy?
South Africa enjoys a strategic location on the African continent with rich natural resources, a strong distaste for communism, and a large segregated black population-whom Ihc
while minority exploits. We are one of Ihc very few nations
which support South Africa: can we limit our democratic
principles 10 our internal policy?
Up until this spring our current government was directly
involved with Lebanon's civil war. Our president and his
secretary of stale told the American public that the reason
our youth were positioned in Lebanon was lo preserve the
current Lebansc government and lo serve our "interests." It
subsequently became apparent that the Christian minority
would lose power in the future. We pulled out of there leaving over 200 American dead, without a political solution, and
without a peace for the people of Lebanon.
Currently, we are deeply involved in the internal affairs of
many nations in Central America none of which send
military or political advisors to our nation to solve our internal problems. America has, for over 60 years, exploited Central America. We have done so with corporations and by implanting dictators and giving aid in a fashion that preserves
our "interests" but not benefitting the pooplc in any extensive manner. Our ideas for creating democracy in Central
America have only led to the financial betterment of a few
companies and individuals. There arc few countries in the
area with working democracies; we must understand the
crucial role American governments have played throughout
the twentieth century in forcing Ihc revolutions and civil wars
in progress today..
We have had our chance to help form democracies, yet we
have not taken Ihc opportunity lo do this. Our government
claims that the communists are suppressing the democratic
processes there. It is not because the people of Nicaragua, El
Salvador or Guatemala want totalitarian governments, since
they have been living that way for decades. The people expect
the democracy their leaders have promised them, the
democracy our government in America pledged to create. We
should not be so quick as lo label Nicaragua's government as
communist; can there only be two possibilities — com' munislic or democratic? With what lypc of government were
they living under before the revolution? It was dictatorship,
whole-heartedly supported by the American government.
The way our government has dealt with ihc successful and
popular revolution in Nicaragua has been with military
counterattacks. We have refused lo negotiate; we have refused to listen lo the rest of the world. The political initiatives of
the Conladora group, consisting of countries within the
region, have been ignored by our government. The possibility of ruling from the world court have recently been
disregarded beforehand by our president. The first action
will certainly bewilder Ihc Central American nations that
strive to attain our democratic values. The second will be a
sign to the resl of Ihe world thai we view Central America impcrialisticaily, as ours to deal with as we sec fit. However, Ihe
resl of Ihe world is concerned, and does not necessarily sec
Ihc changes in Nicaragua as communistic but rather as an attempt at undoing years of inequality and exploitation.
Our government has cenlcred all its efforts on changing
Nicaragua with force, yet ihe people of Nicaragua will fight
for Ihcir new opportunity at democracy. It will lake more
soldiers than the Coniras can mass to overthrow ihc current
government. The most likely allies in such a war manocvcr
would be Honduras and the United Stales. In the end we
would probably attain our goal, the securing of our "inleresls." Multitudes of Nicaraguans, Americans and other
peoples would die. We would risk intcrnaiional repercussions, and it is questionable if democracy as we believe in
America would be implimcntcd.
We arc afraid thai the model or Nicaragua will spread lo
other Central American nations, that communism will take
hold so close to our own soil. We should not use Ihe mask of
communism as our excuse for subversion of Cenlral
America's freedom to choose its own direction. For, if we
had offered these nations to our south Ihc same democracy
we offer our own citizens, there would be no communislic
threat. Instead many in El Salvador are waging a strong bat-
tle for change, and they do not appear lo be fading away in
ihc near future. There was a political problem In Guatemala
which has been dealt with by force. The Indians who wauled
change have been all bin killed off. American-backed dictators wilh American arms and American military advisors
slopped Ihe pleas for change. It was done in a ver)

could be used by Nicaragua for such activity, Ihe Gull of
Fonseca. It was not mined. The Coniras wilh the direel aid of
Ihe CIA are moving from Costa Rica through the southern
border of Nicaragua and taking small areas in that region.
This in turn, will force Nicaragua lo defend its territory.
Possibly soon there will be a heated battle and America with
its weapons and young people will be there to defend out
"interests," as we did in VietNam and Lebanon.
It is time young people asked what our "interests" are in
other nations. As the guardians of democracy, arc we working towards attaining the same rights for other peoples that
we enjoy here in America? Our interests should be sirong
allies who can trade with us and share in the positive changes
in health care and education — this we can offer to our
neighbors. For, while some Americans enjoy a high standard
of living, health, education and political freedom, it is ai lite
expense of others. Moreover, while we live lives thinking thai
in other nations they live as we do, we musl take lime to
become informed and make the decisions of a democracy.
Wc musl decide what our "interests" really are. For ihe
world does nol slop at Lark Street or the Longbranch or at
Ihe border with Mexico. America's interest should include
Ihc needs of those people in other lands, our neighbors, our
friends and our fellow human beings. We will live together or
perish alone.

I'm nineteen. and most of the time 1 want to be John Keenan. but there are times
— midterms, finals, tuition, pre-registration. and especially when the stat

But there's one phrase, as I get older, that begins to bother me more and
more; Think seriously.
Vou're an adult. John. Think seriously.
You're nineteen. Don't be so freshmany.
You have to think seriously about a job for the summer, because unless you
make $1,500 this summer, you can kiss Albany good-bye.
Think seriously? You mean. 1 can't fly anymore? 1 can't stand and look up at

Rachel's dancing is most brightly displayed in the show's opening number.

The Clash's fourth album was a threerecord set called Sandlnlsta. At the lime of Its
1980 release, the popular rumor was that the
Clash had made Sandlnlsta three records long
because they thought that It could get them
out of their record contract, which they were
supposedly unhappy with, and which called
for three more albums. According to Strummer, "We were playing mind games with the
record company. We put out London Calling
Iwo for one (a two-record set). Bruce Springsteen called up Epic and said, 'How come
those damn limeys can get it? Well, I demand
the same.' So they said all right to Bruce, so
he came out with The River, two for one. So
we said, all right, here's three for one. Gel a
load ol thai. Bruce."
Willi Sand/nislsa. the Clash's sound had
become much more soulful, even funky, and
had gotten them considerable airplay In dance
clubs. If not on Ihe radio. While louring for
Sandlnlsta, the Clash reinforced their new
soulful Image, playing with opening acls such
as Rappers. Kurtis Blow, and Grandmaster
Flash and Ihe Furious Five. The crowds didn't
lake very well to the opening acts; they were
still used to a Clash thai was rough, raw, and
violent. But the Clash's popularity grew steadily.
In 1982. Ihe Clash's popularity peaked with
the release of Combal Rock, their fifth album.
The Clash used the hoi new video market as
effectively as anyone, and soon had their first
million-selling album. Combal Rock contains
Ihe hlls "Should 1 Stay or Should I Go," and
"Rock Ihe Casbah," and according to Slrummor. "50 percenl of it was a lot more rocky
than Sandlnlsta or even some of London Call-
.were used to playing in small places, this was a
radical change. "My first gig was in a broom
closet," quipped Strummer. He feels that the
best place for a show is an arena that seats
about 3000 (like Albany's Palace Theater), but

Ing, like "Know Your Rights," or "Should I
Stay." but balancing that is the Saigon God-'
knows-what-abllly of "Sean Flynn" and the
1925 luncheonette number "Death Is a Star.'
The Clash's success climaxed in October of
1982. when they opened for the Who at Shea
stadium in New York City. For the Clash, who
explained why they opened for the Who at
Shea: "You can't go on about it If you haven't
done it. You can't complain about a restaurant
if you haven't tried the food. Also, we figured
we would tike some of their audience If they
were gonna retire, and they invited us. The
Stones once Invited us to play a show in New
Orleans, and we said okay, but we wanted the
poster billed like a boxing fight. "The champions of the world. The Rolling Stones, vs.
The Contenders, The Clash." Get a bit of fun
into It. And they just put the phone down."
Playing with the Who also enabled Strummer to check up on a band that had been
through the mill, which he says encouraged
him to sack Mick Jones. "They couldn't stand
the sjght of each other. They'd go on stage
and do the old pals act In front of the 90,000
people, but they weren't buddies, and I didn't
wanna gel like that with Mick, and I thought to
hell with It. I didn't care which way it went,but
I couldnt go on like this. I didn't care If we hod
to take a big dive, it would be much more fun
than going on like that," he explained.
So In September of 1983, Strummer, with
Paul Simonon backing him up, kicked Mick
Jones out of (he Clash. Drummer Topper
Headon had left the band voluntarily about a
year earlier, and was replaced by Peter
Howard. Guitarists Vince White and Nick
Shephard also joined the band. "It Just takes
the whole weight off," contends Strummer,
"Now we've got a team."
Shortly after,, the split up. controversy arose
regarding the band's name, as both the Jones
and Strummer (actions claimed to be the
Clash. Strummer feels that. "What Mick wants
is all the money, but he's given up on the
name, because he realizes that you can't just
have the Clash as a free thing, because you're
open to all the things you started out against.
We didn't see the necessity to become an egotripping God, surrounded by an entourage of
*. • •
Jones and Strummer were the songwritlng
core of the Clash, which leaves speculation as
to the direction that the Clash's music will
•ake, "We've got this feeling that we want to
strip it back down. All we take on the road are
guitars, drums.and shouting." Strummer
asserted, "and if that isn't good enough, they
why are we only just bringing that. So I wanna
record with that and see If it's still something

The Continuing Adventures Of Joe Strummer
continued from 7a
you can be creative with. To be honest, I'm
frightened of machines."
If Strummer feels this way about machines,
one has to wonder why the Clash's music hod
gone the other way, but Strummer explains,
"We got bedazzled by the studio, and the 24
tracks all saying, 'feed me, record on me. what
about me?"
By replacing Jones with two guitarists, it
was thought that Strummer would be concentrating on his singing, but Strummer jokec
that, "I play as well, I'm afraid. It's very loud,
extremely annoying."
He says that instead of arranging a brass
section or violins, they will be arranging
guitars, and trying to use some sounds from
the guitars like more of a percussive Instrument. "I'm very good at that bit." claimed
As to what the band will play in concert, the
Clash Is working on 7 or 8 new songs Interspersed with what Strummer calls, "all of
the best moments of the Clash. The times that
we really hit well, like "London Calling" or
"Armeglddeon Time." Strummer said that his
favorite moments with the Clash tend to be
obscurities, such as, "If Music Could Talk,"
from Sandinlsta, and "Straight to Hell," from
Combat Rock, but observed that, "on stage
you're In a different frame of mind. I get very
violent and very aggressive and 1 want to get
my teeth into something. I want to bang a
song around like "Brand New Cadillac" (London Calling) or "Career Opportunities" (The
When asked about the violence thai occurs
at a Clash concert. Sturmmer responded. "At
the front of one of our shows, it is a physical
contact sport, but very rarely do any bones get
broken. I've always fetf that It was a release,
and that people were less inclined to do
something violently evil after one of our concerts, than immediately before."
Strummer doesn't hesitate to do any of the
Strummer-Jones compositions, declaring.
"The more the merrier. I'm sure if he (Jones)
ever gels going, he'll do the same." Jones is
reportedly working with drummer Topper
Headon with a new group called Top Risk Action Company In London,
The Strummer-Jones combination was
another thing that was causing a falling out
between the two men. "I don't believe In a
Jagger-Richards ghetto," claimed Strummer.
"where they keep the writing to themselves,
they keep all the dough to themselves, and
they sort of pay off the other guys like the
three stooges. I'd rather have an open team
where there's no one sulking because he feels
left out."
On the Clash's first two albums,
the songs are credited to Strummer-Jones, but
starting with/.ondon Calling, the third album,
the songs are credited to the Clash, which
Strummer forced through in an attempt to
create more of a team feeling. Jones was
always against the idea. Strummer contends.
Playing by the rules, The Clash should have
rushed out and recorded an album b,»k in
September, and be touring behind it now. but
Strummer contends. "We're interested In getting to know each other, getting to know an
audience with a new group, and getting some
common experience."
When asked about the Clash's plans to
record. Strummer joked. "We're gonna attempt to record naked to see If It brings the
primeaval spirit back to things." and added.
"I'd like to record livish In the studio, because I
think there's something to be said between
human's playing together." Presently when an
album Is recorded It Is done one instrument at
a time • first the drums, then the guitars, etc.
" I ' m very bored with this laboratory
approach," said Strummer, who Is not sure
when the band will make It into the studio.
The Clash has always been known to be
politically outspoken and socially conscious,
and this Is one aspect of the band that will not
change. "The Thatcher situation Is much the
same as the Reagan one; tremendously
popular guy. very right wing, beating the
patriotic drum, gonna get In for another four

years, no real opposition, opposition divided
amongst Itself. Thatchers's in till 1988 now, so
it's heads down over there, and we have to
urge people to even register to vole. It's the
global youth attitude, a 6()'s cynicism. I'm not
into that anymore, it hasn't gotten us
anywhere. We're trying to get people to vote,
and we're encouraging them to vote Labor,
which is the direct Socialist alternative to Thatcher, even though when they get Into power
they'll probably become indistinguishable from
the others and we'll go roundabout again."
Because of the popularity of Combat Rock
the Clash )ust might be able to pass on their
message. "We know It's a gamble. We are trying to be Incredibly successful and incredibly
radical." contends Strummer. "To be brutal
about It, to make Michael Jackson, they
whlteifled him. They fixed his nose, they gave
him a white manager. Is he a man or Is he a
woman? Is he a black man or Is he a white
man? Nobody quite knows."
ONe final change for the Clash Is their attitude towards drugs.
"Nobody In the group goes near drugs.
We're trying to encourage people that there Is
a life after drugs and It's not some kind of
downer. In fact It's the opposite, It's an
upper," Strummer said. " A n d I feel my
memory Is coming back, which could be a
greal help."

thoughtful attention shown to them.
On Sunday, April 8, there was a Talent Show scheduled at
Daughters of Sarah. Due to the unfortunate circumstance of
last minute cancellations, the Talent Show had to be cancelled. These last minute cancellations wouldn't have made
much of a difference If the original response from students
willing lo perform had been greater. I must say that my cochair, Jane Stein and I worked very hard on this Talent Show
and were both very disappointed to sec the low turnoul. To
compcnsaic for not having a talent show, a friend of mine
and I danced for the residents and Passover songs were .sung
with them. Aderwards, the Tew of us that showed up Sunday
spoke with and visied these residents. As has always been my
experience with visiting the Daughters of Sarah Nursing
Home, the response was very positive from these residents
and very beneficial to those of us who were ihcrc.
For the remainder of this year and through next year us
well,, 1 would like to see a greater turnout of people who will
go to the Nursing Home and attend and participate in events,
such as a Talent Show. I f anyone would like more information, you may call the Hillel ONICC at 457-7508 or visit the
Hillel Office in CC 320. If you would like to speak lo Jane or
I personally, our telephone numbers are available in the JSCHillel Office, Think twice about saying no to those "smiting
laces." All il takes is giving a little care and warmth to those
who appreciate it immensely,

Good Friday
To Ihc Editor:
People ofien overlook the facl iliai college is noi jusl a
place lo grow academically, bin lhal college is a slopping
slonc lo aciing responsibly in an aduli community, This
responsibility requires an awareness and a sensitivity toward
the beliefs of others. In a diverse environntent such as
SUNYA, one would expect this lo be Ihc case. Apparently, it
Is not.
Wc are addressing the "Have a Good Friday" at the Red
Parrol Night planned by Delta Sigma Pi. We are appalled
that this organization would make a mockery of the mosl
solemn day of the Christian year.
What is mosl upsetting is the play on I lie words " G o o d
Friday." By doing this, they arc making a sham of Christian
religious convictions.
A SUNY Night should be an event in which all students
can participate. This celebration is insensitive lo the beliefs
of a large segment of the sludcnl population who are Christian.
In order to understand our outrage one must grasp the
significance of this day. According lo Sr. Danielle Honctti,
Catholic campus minister: " G o o d Friday is the most solemn
day of our Christian Church calendar. II is the day set aside
to commemorate the passion and death of Jesus Christ. Il is
marked by fasting and prayer. It is a day which should be
centered on a eonciousness of God's overwhelming goodness
lo us."
We are equally shocked at the lack of sensitivity which
allowed the saying "Have a 'Good Friday 1 at the Red
Parrot" to be approved for podium posting and a Campus
Center sheet sign. Wc are assuming that this incident was
unintentional but the fact that it was ignored by the
authorities who should be representing everyone, is to put it
simply, wrong.
We believe it is in very poor taste to plan a university-wide
event, with this slogan, on Good Friday, the mosl solemn
Holy Day in the Christian calendar.

Irresponsible actions
T o Ihe Editor:
This letter is addressed to Ihc editor, however it should he
addressed to the enlire university community. As any intelligent student should be made aware of Ihc irresponsible
actions taken by the Albany Studenl Press (ASP) editorial
staff in their rationale for their endorsement for S.A. president.
Throughout my enrollment at the Stale University al
Albany, I have been made aware, and am increasingly
reminded of the ASP'a racist, sexist, and biased history, past
and present. It is ever so apparent in their endorsement supplement.
The editorial staff gave its highest praise and endorsement
to one candidate who lacked not only a commitment, but
also lacked concern for, or even the slightest awareness of,
minority or women's issues. At the same time the ASP,
within the same issue, it (the ASP) cites lack of awareness for
these same issues, as a major weakness in the platform of
another candidate.
Are we, the students of the SUNYA campus, to believe
and accept Ihc written word of a newspaper which defies Ihe
laws of reason, common sense, and journalistic efficiency or
coherency? Since this is the farthest reaching newspaper on
this campus, almost a monopoly informationwisc, is it noi its
duly or obligation to al least attempt to uphold some level of
journalistic aptitude? Amaieiir writers you may be, but standards for journalism have been built over Ihc course o f its
history, and are established. Do you noi feci il necessary to
abide by them?
The students on this campus are deserved of an objective,
informally? newspaper. As long as the ASP is to remain on
campus, occupy space in the campus center, disperse
newpapers and function for the best interest o f the students
o f the State University at Albany, it should do just that, be
objective and informative. This has not been the protocol exemplified by the ASP, in the past or present. Let us hope and
pray that it can be'achieved in the future, the near future

With our thanks to all o f ihe acts, there arc a few acts

T o Ihe Editor:
This letter concerns Central Council's decision to pass
retroactive pay raises for three members of the executive
branch. I was the primary initiator of the Student Association's present Non-Discriminaiion Policy and a vocal advocate for Ihe rights of minorities and women.
This orientation has allowed me to sludy Ihe subjeel of
discrimination and comparable pay for comparable work. Il
is my understanding that four members of the executive
board were stipended al $2250 and Ihrcc were stipended al
$1375. The former being white males, the latter females and
minority. My question: SO W H A T ? Those facts do not, in
and of themselves, constituic a Title VII suil . . . (contrary
to opinion).
This is probably news lo the members of Central Council.
The subsequent information may also be surprising:
1. A stipend is not a salary; il is not taxable.
2. A l l stipends are $250 for each semester, regardless of the
position held.
3. All stipends were calculated on I he same pro-rata sum of
$4.37 per hour for the summer.
4. The former executives arc required to put in twice as
many hours as the latter.
5. The media director issued two Studenl Voice during the
summer and was not required to slay in Albany during
6. The Off-Campus Coordinator and the Minority Affairs
Coordinator were in the office 20 hours a week and could
hold additional jobs during Ihe summer. This was the first
year for that present organization of each office.
7. Last year the Programming Director and the Council
Chair had similar hours and similar stipends — they did not
receive retroactive pay — they were white males. The media
director was also'stipended at a simitar rate — the position
was held by a while female.
8 Pasi presidents and vice-presidents have been female or
minorities and received a stipend for their positions. Stipends
are based on time requirements, not sex or race.
9. SA has not (in al least the pasi five years) approved any
retroactive bill.
10. The above information can be found in past Central
Council minutes and would be admissible in a Title V I I law
The present Council is not responsible for the existing
stipends but will be for those included in the 84-85 budget. I
sincerely hope thai Ihey make a responsible decision based on
ihc facts and refuse lo read to threats and subtle insinuations
of racism and sexism.. A review of the history of Student
Association will indicate lhal it has made substantial progress
regarding the placement of women and miuorilies in this
year's agenda. Consequently 1 urge the Council members to
consider each stipend, and ihe responsibility, and time requirements o f the office holder, noi the possibility of ihe individual's sex or race. Only then will Sludcnl Association actively be conforming Willi the concept of N O N DISCRIMINATION.

thai he would win the runoff. " I
certainly feel that the small margin
would have been more than made
up if the polls had opened at the appropriate time," Hallock asserted.
Schaffer, who defeated Hallock
on Indian Quad, where the polls
opened late, disagreed with
Hallock. " I f the polls were open
earlier on Indian Quad I'd have
done even belter," Schaffer said.
McCann has said he plans to
campaign with Hallock on dinner

about running for SA president.

Campus divestitures of South African
holdings declining despite protests
PRESS SERVICE) Organizers say recent
diriatcd nationwide demonstrations calling for more
universities to sell
their holdings itf companies that
do business in segregationist South Africa were " t h e
largest anti-apartheid mobilization in several years."
The actual pace o f campus administrators divesting
their portfolios of shares in the firms has fallen o f f in
the last few years, however.
Called " T w o Weeks o f Anti-Apartheid A c t i o n , "
the protests, organized by the American Committee on
Africa ( A C O A ) , stretched across scores of campuses
from lite last week o f March through the first weeks of
Demonstrations took place at Florida State, Duke,
the University of the District o f Columbia, Columbia,
Harvard, Kalamazoo College, Oregon and Southern
Cal, among many other places, reports Joshua Nesscn,
who coordinates campus activities from the A C O A office in New York City.
Nesscn estimated the events involved "thousands"
of students.
They "sent a strong message of opposition to U.S.
investment in South A f r i c a , " he said.
The demonstrations " p u t our administration and
other university administrators on notice that the

Judging just how this spring's protests measure
against those of the past is difficult because the ACOA
has lumped efforts with those o f the nuclear freeze
movement in 1982 and 1983.
But protests, while usually not as large as those surrounding other causes, have been almost constant.

Most prominently, Minnesota toughened its South
Africa policy in January, prohibiting university investments in firms that don't endorse the Sullivan
Principles, a list o f 14 civil righls for South African
workers in Atncrican-conirollcd companies.
In February, Wesleyan University sold its shares in
Ncwmoni Mining when Newmoni refused lo sign an
agreement lo observe the Sullivan Principles.
No other campus administrations have sold o f f
shares this school year, however.

The Danes first competed in the Blnghamlon Invitational, held on A p r i l I I , where ihey

Mary Carmody was named the Danes'
outstanding performer o f the meet as she
placed second in the 400-niclcr dash with a
time o f 1:00.7 and fourth in the 200-meicr
dash in a lime of 28.2. Carmody also anchored the 4xl00-melcr and 4x400-metcr
relays which both placed fourth, wrapping
up quite a day by the talented freshman.
In what Coach White called " I h e real
break through o f the meet," Karen Kurlhy
ran a personal best in Ihe 1500-meter run with
a fine time o f 4:56.5. Kurlhy could only
manage a seventh place finish in an extremely
strong field, but Ihe very quick race pulled
her under ihe five minuic mark for ihe first
lime, a goal thai had eluded her for quite
some lime.
" I was very pleased for Karen," said
While. "Five minutes had been a menial barrier of sons, and now thai she is past il I feci

in 18:43.3, and Kitty Sullivan's two personal
bests in ihe 1500-melcr run and 3000-melcr

respectable fifth out o f nine learns with a

about his team's performance, saying, " I was
very satisfied with our team place."
Sophomore' distance ace Jacobs was
Albany's siar performer of the meet, as she
first placed second in Ihe 10,000-meicr run
wiih an awesome lime of 38:06.4. The lime
was a track personal besl and only 1.4

There were many more fine performances
from Dane compeliiors, starting wiih an
Albany first in the hcptathalon. Barb Shipley
placed fifth, with a point total of 3215,
followed by Griner in sixth with a poinl tula]
of 3134. This was Ihe first lime any Albany
hepiaihlelcs had placed in a major competilion. Mary Ban also had a fine day, placing
in both hurdle races. Ban placed sixth in Ihe
100-meicr hurdles wiih a lime of 20.8, and
placed fourth in the 400-melcr hurdles with a
lime o f 1:16.2. Olher Danes placing in the

Mary Randies, sixth in the shotptil; Shipley,
sixlh in the javelin; and Chris Varlcy, sixlh in
Ihe 10,000-meler run.
Nexl the Danes traveled lo Harlwick lo
compete against both H a r l w i c k and
Hamilton. The meet was held April 18, righi
in Ihe middle of Albany's spring break, and
the Danes had only ihirteen compeliiors.
Those Ihrilcen competitors were enough on
this day, though, as the Danes prevailed with
26 points to Hamilton's 68 and Hanwick's
32. " I was really surprised we look this meei,
I didn'l think with such a depleted team we
would be able lo pull il o f f , " said Coach
Jacobs lead the way with a first In Ihe
3000-melcr run and a second in Ihe
1500-meter run. Her time of 10:48.8 in the
3000-melcr run was a good one, but her
1500-melcr lime o f 4:54.5 just missed ihe
school record and smashed her previous besl
lime by fourteen seconds. Jacobs was named
Albany's outstanding performer for her efforts.
Other notable performances included
DcLauricr's first place in the discus with a
Ihrow o f 101' 6 " , Ban's season besl
400-meicr hurdles o f 1:15.9, and Shipley's
Ihird place in the shot wiih a throw of 32' 5 " .
Coach White termed Shipley's effort a " m a j o r b r e a k t h r o u g h , " as she improved
dramatically in the event during the meet.
Coach While described the Danes' effort
ihis past Tuesday as a "super meet." Albany
came away with wins over both Binghamton
and Union, scoring 89.5 points to 67.5 points
for Binghamton and 20 points for Union.
The two wins wrapped what Coach White
called, " a very satisfying dual meet season,"
wiih a fine 5-1 record.
Karen Robinson pulled o f f a rare (riplc win
effort and was named the Danes' outstanding
performer o f the meet. Her first win came as

Said While, "There were olher notable
performances, people who may have laken
Firsts, but Chris just had a super meet, and I
feel she deserves some credit. Her effort was
one of ihe besl by any individual all season,
and such efforts should not go unnoticed."
Both Shipley and Jacobs were double winners for the Danes. Shipley won the
100-metcr hurdles in 18.0 seconds, and look

The Albany State women's tennis learn
lurned in an impressive outing last Wednesday and overwhelmed Oneonta, 8-1. I f nol
for a freak injury suffered lo first singles
player Mindy Hartslein during Ihe first
doubles match, the Danes would have swept
the Red Dragons o f f Albany's courts.
Albany dropped only one set Ihe entire
match, that being in Hartslcin's match
against'Ellsc Rcuter. Harlstcin won 4-6, 6-1,
6-0, in a malch that had Ihe appearances of
being close until Ihe second set. In ihe First
sel, Hartslein got o f f lo a fasl start and caplured the first Ihree games. With the score 3-2
in ihe fourth game and Hartslein serving,
Hartslein double faulted Iwice lo give Rculer
ihe game and a second life.
"When I double faulted, I losl my conceniraiion," said Harlstcin. " I lei her gel back
into Ihe match. In the second set, I knew thai
I had lo lake the offensive. I couldn't jusl
chip il back lo her (Reutcr). For me lo win, I
had lo take Ihe malch lo her. I hit my shots
harder, and I wen! for a big first serve." The
change in tactics enabled Hartslein lo hold
her opponent lo one game ihe nexl Iwo sets.
Second singles player Joan Phillips had a
much easier lime o f It, bcaiing Michelle
Brown by ihe score of 6-0, 6-2. A l Ihird
singles, Lauren Isaacs beat her opponeni,
6-3, 6-4. Isaacs had Ihe unique experience of
playing someone with Ihe same cxacl style o f
play thai she had.
" I had to ihink how I would play myself,"
said Isaacs. "She played the same game that I
did. Usually I hit short and make my opponeni come in and then I would lob il over
ilicir heads. The difference between ihe iwo
of us was Ihai I was a lillle more patient."
Fourlh singles player Hclene Tishler won
her malch, 6-2, 6-2, while al the fil'ih singles
position Geri Chiodo look her malch, 6-4,
6-3. A l sixlh singles, Ellen Yun easily handled
her opponent, 6-1, 6-1.
The First doubles team of Hartslein and
Phillips were on their way to being Albany's
seventh point when Hartslein sprained her
ankle in a slrangc manner.
• " T h e ball went over my head," recalled
Hartslein. " I weni after it, but the ball got
tangled up in Ihe curtain (that separates ihe
indoor courts). I don't remember running into the curtain, but I fell and I landed on ihe
ouiside of my ankle. Then I goi up and fell
on il again."
The injury was severe enough lo make
Albany forfeit ihe malch and ruin Ihe
shuloul. The second doubles icam of Isaacs
and Tishler look their malch by ihe score of
6-1, 6-2, while Ihe ihird doubles tandem of
Chris Cassaro and Lisa Valins won, 6-4, 6-4.
The icam will be trying, lo use ihis malch as
a springboard lo victories against upcoming
opponcnis Concordia, S i . Johns and

lacrosse team faced yesterday as RIT
scored four goals al Ihe end of Ihe firsl
half lo break open a close conlcsl which
turned inlo a I6-6 loss for Ihe Danes.
The loss brought their record 10 5-4;
more imponanlly, ihey are a disappointing 0-3 in conference play. The game
against RIT, who is ranked sixth in Division I I , began on a sour nolc as RIT
scored Ihe firsl Ihree goals before Don
Cassodanie scored at Ihe eight minute
mark. 11 was a good day for Cassodanie,
who has been one of ihe Grcal Dane's
most consislcm scorers iji his four-year
career. This made ihe score, 3-1 in RIT's
favor. Cassodanie scored again later in

The turning poinl in ihe game occurred
when RIT ouiseored the Danes 4-1 in Ihe

well bin Ihey couldn't come back.
Coach Gary Campbell said, " W e
played even with Ihem after the half but il
vasn'l enough:"
During the vacation, Ihe Danes played
against Vermont, a Division I school and
Oswego, a conference rival. Vermont was
7-0 going inlo the game and was ranked
first in the ECAC. Albany obviously
wasn't overly impressed wilh Vermoni's
credentials, as Ihe squad beat them convincingly by the score of 16-6.
Coach Campbell remarked, " I l was

Again Ihe leading,scorer was Cassodanie

Danes belt RPI; gear up for clash with Dragons
By Marc Berman
Dane b a t s clobbered three RPI p i t c h e r s In their 16-6 rout o l the
Engineers yesterday.
If I heir slogan, "The Road lo Respccl", Includes
healing up on leams lhal had defealcd them lasi year,
I lie Albany Siaie baseball (cam mighi have one fool on
ihc path.
The Danes clubbed oul 17 hits off of Ihrce RPI pitchers cnroule lo a 16-6 thrashing o f Ihc Engineers,
yesterday on Troy High School field, across ihe slreei
from Ihe RPI campus.
In terms of respect, Ihe Danes lately have been
treated almost as poorly as Rodney Dangerfield.
Albany Stale dropped four out o f six games during
spring break as their record plummet led lo 4-9. But
yesterday, on a sunbaked baseball diamond in Troy,
everything seemed lo come logclher, for Ihe Danes —
Ihe hitting, Ihe fielding, and Ihe pitching — namely
Tom McCarthy, who pitched six and two-thirds,
brilliant innings of relief lo pick up his first win of the
year. " W e had our heads in Ihe game," said iliird
baseman Howie Hammond, who had Ihrce hiis, iwo
RBI's and Iwo walks lo keep his Icam-leading balling
average over .400. " I t was our best offensive performance of ihe year."
The Danes are hoping lhal yesterday's romp will
serve as a confidence builder for I his weekend's crucial
four game series againsl S U N Y A C rival Onconia — a
cloublehcadcr Saturday at University Field and a
clouhlelicader Sunday at Onconia. Ill the unlikely occurrence lhal Ihe Danes sweep ihe lour games, they
would he back in Ihe running for a SUNYAC playoff
berth. Presently, Albany Stale's conference record is a
dismal 2-5-1.
Things didn'l slarl off loo promising for Ihe
visitors. Even before Ihe game, there were fateful signs
lhal litis wasn't going lo be Albany's day. Head Coach
Ed Zaloom was struck in the forehead by a hard-hit
line drive while he was pitching balling practice.
Zaloom was not seriously hurl; lie had a severe
headache bin was able to coach the Squad, And what
probably made Zaloom's headache worse was Ihc way
RPI opened up lite game, scoring three runs in the first
on four singles.
A f l c r Albany cut Ihe margin to .1-2 in Ihc lop of ihc
second, lite Engineers proceeded to send slatting pit-
cher Mike Plynn lo Ihc bench in the bottom of the inning by increasing Ihe lead to 5-2 on a two-run double
hammered by T i m Albert. •
Into the contest for Ihe Danes came McCarthy and
suddenly Ihc Engineer offensive attack was stilled.
Mixing up his hard curve and fastball effectively, McCarthy baffled thePRI hitters allowing just one run on
four hits before being replaced with one oul in the
" I was very pleased with his performance," said
Zaloom, who seemed in good shape following the
game despite a small bruise on his upper forehead.
" C o n t r o l was Ihc main thing going for him. He threw
strikes, something our pitchers haven't done for us
While McCarthy was hurling his masterpiece, Ihc
Dane bals started lo come alive, chipping away slowly
at RPI's lead until overtaking them in the fifth inning
on freshman Steve Anlico's single that drove in junior
Mike Vosburgh, who had doubled.
The Danes never looked back aflcr that. In Ihe nexi
inning, Albany raised their lead lo 7-5 on aid from two
wild pilches. Dave Hennessey led off the inning with a
walk and he reached third following two wild pilches
thrown by Doug Bladccki, RPI's lltird pitcher of the
day. He scored on a nubbcr 10 first base hit by
designated hitter Joe Phreell.
If Ihe Dane offense production in Ihc first seven innings was like scoring in steady droplets, ihcir final Iwo
innings they scored in tidal waves. Nine Danes crossed
the plate in the eighth and ninth innings as a close
healed battle quickly turiicd into a laugher.
" W e got Ihe hits when Ihe runners were on base,"
said Zaloom. "Usually, we scatter the hits."
Hammond accounted tor one of the timely hits
Zaloom was referring lo. In ihe eighth inning, the third
baseman knocked home Iwo runs when he cleared lite
bases on a triple lhal bounced one loot inside Ihe righi
field foul line. Tile Ihrce-baggcr scored Dave
Thclcman and Bob Conklin who had readied base on
back lo back singles. Jeff McEuchron then drove in

Top SA executives take pay cuts in new budget
By Jon Wlllmott
A l l the members of Student Association's
executive brunch arc Inking pay cuts next
year as pari of Ihc 1984-85 budget which SA
President Rich Schalfcr signed Monday.
A new, two-licrcd stipend system has been
implemented with Ihe President, Vice President, Controller and Central Council Chair
forming the upper tier and earning $2,000 per
year. The Minority Affairs Coordinator, Ihc
SA Media Director and Director of Student
Programming form Ihc lower tier, earning
$1,500, said Schiiffer.
This past year, till seven executives were
paid $2,250 for I lie year.
The busis for Ihc new two tier system was
lhat with the exception of the Council Chair,
tile upper Met is legally responsible and can be
named in suits thai involve SA.
" U n t i l this year, we always picked stipends
haphazardly," said Schalfcr.
The one year old position of Off-Campus
Coordinator was eliminated from the upcoming year's budget, because council felt Ihe
chair o f the off-campus board of directors
could do Ihe j o b .
The reasons for the cutbacks were
budegtary, said Scliaffer.
Newly installed SA Vice President Suz.y
Auletta said, "everyone took cuts and wc
have lo also. Il is more Important to have the
j o b anyway."
A dispute over stipends arose earlier this
year after the Director of Student Programming was placed on the same level as the upper tier members while the SA Media Director, Minority Affairs Coordinator and OffCampus Coordinator, were not.
During a recent meeting, Central Council
grained buck pay equaling thai of SA's top
executives, to Ihe Minority Affairs Coordinator, Ihe Media director and the Ol'fCnmpus Coordinator.
This was done, according lo Scliaffer,
because Director of Student Programming
Richie Goltibow had already received his full
$2,250 stipend and " I was not going to force
him lo give back money."
Minority Affairs Coordinator Vivian Vazquez and then Off-Campus Coordinator
Suzy Auletta were originally slipened at
$1,375, and Ihe position of SA Media Director, which was held by l.ihhy Post until intercession and has been held by Siaccy Young
since the, was originally budgeted til $1,675.
Vazquez., at last month's controversial
meeting, said she was lo deal with rnclsm
every lime she walks into the SA office.
Schalfcr, who is up lor rc-clcclion, said
Monday that Ihc charges are bnsicnlly irtic.
" W h e n Eddie Edwards, who is Ihe black

Schalfcr also noted lhal Central Council

this, lie said, hits resulted in fewer opportunities for minorities.
Auletlu, who was recently elected Vice
President, said women have Ihe lowest positions in SA. She also said the controversy ul

Fifth singles player Mike Dermansky beat Mike Hughes, 6-3,

Albany duo held their opponents to

Ihe pair in contention for a bid to

The second doubles combination

To combat ignorance of homosexuality, a Chicago bused

a gay and lesbian center on campus.
The one-time grant will be used for research and the
development of outreach programs on campus to educate the
university community about homosexualitv.
homosexuality, according to
Dr. David Jenkins, program director for Middle Earth and
associate Director of Residential Life for Student and Stuff
Development, who will supervise the center.
Activities for ihe center' are scheduled to begin ininiediaiely and continue throughout Ihe summer.
According to Jenkins, Ihe Chicago Resource Center is a
research foundation which works to develop awtircness
awareness cof
certain issues, including homosexual issues,
" T h e (Gay and Lesbian) center will primarily focus-on
research and educating the university community," said
Jenkins. "There is a lot o f ignorance about the homosexual
community, We want to sensitize the hcicroscxunl community ubotti the problems of homosexuals and the effects of a rejecting environment on ilieni, and how a rejecting environment limits human development and g r o w t h , " said Jenkins.
Instead of concentrating on the development of new and
increased services for the lesbians and gays, a major priority
for the center will he researching and developing new programs to educate members o\' the university community, according to Vice President for Student Affairs Frank Pogue.
" T h e grant was designed lo identify those educational programs lhal are necessary, and lo raise and answer questions
many students have about guy and lesbian issues. It will focus
on educational studies and commentary about those issues,"
Pogue said.
Assisting the center will be a Hoard ol" student, faculty and
staff volunteers who will provide input und assistance in the
urea of program developirtenl and research, according to
Jenkins. The volunteers, representing a broad spectrum of
campus groups und inleresis, will include heterosexual as well

" Fhcy will iissisl in determining ihc best upprouch for selecting a director for the center, and also in determining the
