Most off-campus students will have until June, 1985 to
comply with a city zoning ordinance, known as the
"grouper law," which prohibits more than three
unrelated people from sharing an apartment or house,
Albany city officials said Wednesday.
However, at one house located near Quail Street in the
student ghetto area, students say they are caught in the
middle of a struggle between their landlord and the city
which could lead to their eviction under the grouper law.
The three floor house contains 14 students in three
separate apartments, according to residents. Under the
"grouper law" ordinance, the house can only contain
three students in each apartment.
The Bureau of Code Enforcement is currently "in the
process of evaluating" the house, said bureau director
Mike Alvaro, asserting that the landlord "will be
One tenant claimed that the city "is after" the
landlord, Jack Buckman, and that the students "just happended to be in the way."
Off-Campus Housing Director Karleen Karlson stressed that this is the only house currently under
The tenants, Karlson said, will be allowed to stay in the
house for at least another month.
Alvaro said that, while the eviction of tenants "still is a
possibility" in severe cases, the city has agreed to a "tentative deadline" of June 1985 for landlords and tenants to
comply with the ordinance.
' More than 4,500 students live off campus in areas near
the SUNYA bus line. In the past the city has not rigidly
enforced the grouper law, but many landlords' practice of
renting to more than three unrelated people has, according to city officials, led to the overall deterioration of
the city's housing stock.
Total enforcement of the grouper law ordinance could
cause over 1,000 students to be displaced, said Karlson,
who has contended that there isn't enough housing
available to absorb these students. Albany currently has a
vacancy rate of less than two percent.
The residents of the one house under investigation, explained that each tenant pays $150 or $160 per month, including heat and utilities. "It's not worth it," said one te17»-

Campus buzzing with weekend plans
By Kristine Sauer
As parents and guests crowd the podium this
weekend they will find a potpourri of happenings
awaiting their attention.
The visitors will be taking part in the Fourteenth
Annual Community University Day, Parent's
Weekend, and the Alumni Homecoming.
On Saturday, the Lecture Centers will be filled with
exhibits celebrating SUNYA's "140 years of service"
to the community. This theme was picked to honor the
1844 founding of the Albany Normal School, an institution which has evolved into the University at
Albany, one of the four University Centeis of the
SUNY system.
"This is the single event that the entire University
sponsors to reach out the community, parents and
Alumni. It's University wide. We are going to open up
our doors," said Event Coordinator Sorrell Chesin,
associate vice president for University Affairs.
For each of the groups participating this weekend,
different events have been prepared.
Parent's Weekend, beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday,
will offer a variety of "topic sessions" to interested
parents. Subjects offered range from admissions to
law and medical schools to a discussion on the collegiate experience led by Vice President for Student
Affairs Frank Pogue.
Comedian Robert Klein will perform for Parent's
Weekend. Guests will be treated to a fireworks show
following Klein's 8 p.m. performance Saturday night.
C-U Day's open house will feature campus tours
and various department exhibits. A "must see," according to Chesin, is the Wally Balloon Display in the
LC area. Children and adults will be able to talk with a
televised cartoon character at that exhibit.
Also featured at C-U Day will be discussions for
prospective students, led by groups of faculty
members from SUNYA's science departments. In addition, they will conduct a tour of the Nuclear Accelerator Lab. "Most people have no idea we have
one," Chesin said.
The Alumni Association will also be_ hosting

Students to vote on referendum to
raise activity fee by $6. SO per year
By Barbara S. " brahamer
Students will J< dc text Monday and Tuesday
whether they wit;, i raise the mandatory student
activity fee from $92.50 to $99.00 per year.
The decision will be done through a campus wide
referendum in next week's Student Association
elections. In addition to the referendum, students
will elect representatives to Central Council and
University Senate.
SA President Rich Schaffer decided to propose
an increase in the fee from the present $92.50 per year to $99.00 after discussing SA's financial audit
this summer, he explained.
Although Schaffer admitted that SA is in the
black for the first time in three years, he said SA
needs a "cushion within the budget for long-range
plans and development."
SA Controller Rich Golubow agreed that right
now there is "no flexibility for long-range
Schaffer blamed the situation on the past SA
presidents who he believes did not plan for the
future. SA needs money "in case of an emergency
down the road," he said.
Compared with other SUNY schools, both
Golubow and Schaffer feel that Albany is utilizing
the student fee more effectively. "Albany State at
$92 provides two times the programming that
Stonybrook provides," said Schaffer.
Last year's decrease from 92 to 73 SA funded
groups was due to the tight budget SA had to work
with, said Golubow.
Schaffer said he hopes the additional $25,000
generated by an increase would allow SA to "keep
up the quality and number of funded groups."
SUNYA's student fee was last increased in October 1982, when it was raised from $77.00 to the
current $92.50.
SUNY-Central has set a $100,000 limit on activity
fees to reduce the risk of reckless behavior on the
part of a student government, Schaffer said.
Maintaining that the budget will be "very tight"
if the referendum does not pass, Schaffer said he
will personally campaign in favor of the proposal.
He said he intends to hold "information sessions"
for students, and urged students to "come in and
find out what SA's doing for them."
"We're not going to shove it down people's
throats," he promised. Although an SA president
could impose the fee by simply gaining Central
Council's approval, Schaffer said that SA has
"traditionally gone to the students" in a
Currently, SUNYA's mandatory student fee is
the lowest of any of the four University Centers in
the SUNY system. Students at Buffalo pay $95.00
per year; Binghamton, $97.00 per year; and
Stony Brook, pending approval from SUNYCentral, $109.50 per year.
Three SUNY Colleges: Brockport, Fredonia, and
Oneonta, all have mandatory fees in excess of
$100.00. A student government cannot set the fee
above $100.00 without first receiving a waiver of
the limit from SUNY-Central.
Uptown quad residents will be able to vote in the
flagrooms of their quads, while Alumni residents
will vote at the Brubacker and Walden cafeterias.
Off-campus students will be able to vote in the
Campus Center lobby.
Students who wish to vote must have an SA tax

undergrads can pick up their tax sticker at the SA

Students win right to
vote in college towns
By Jerry Camplone
In what Student Association
President Rich Schaffer termed a
"decisive victory," U.S. Northern District Court Judge Neal
McCurn decided Tuesday to
allow students in New York State
to register and vote in their college communities.
SUNYA students won a temporary injunction in October
1980, allowing them the right to
vote in Albany. The judge's decision Tuesday night, permanently
ensures that all New York State
college students can vote in their
campus communities.
McCurn ruled in Auerbach vs.
McKinley that Section 5-104 of
the New York State Election
Law, which states that university
students neither gain nor lose
t h e i r r e s i d e n c e , is
McCurn also ruled that Section
1-104 of the elction law is con-
stitutional "if read in a contorted
manner." This section defined
residence as "fixed and permanent," and allowed local boards
of elections to discriminate
against dormitory residents on
this basis. McCurn's decision has
made such interpretations illegal.
This decision will affect
SUNYA students, Schaffer said,
because now the right to vote is
guaranteed by law and not by
temporary means.
"This is going to affect the attitudes of local officials," he said,
adding that perhaps the "poor attitudes" officials have towards
students voting will come to an
"The decision definitely helps
student morale," said Schaffer,
who expressed hopes that this will
help lend credibility to student
voters. "Now, it's (the students
vote) a major factor," he said.

from students in the '60's.
In an apparent wave of growing campus
conservatism, students seem to be embracing the traditional values that their
counterparts rejected 15-20 years ago.
Student attitudes toward political parties, the draft, and national government
are shifting towards the center, and according to SUNYA student leaders and faculty, this campus may be no exception.
The most active campus group on campus, at this point in the 1984 elections, is
Students for Reagan. The group boasts a
membership of 250 students, while the
Albany State Young Democrats has about
50 students on their membership list.
Comparing students current political
beliefs to those of students in the 60's, Andy Gelbman of the Albany State Young
Democrats said, "Students are certainly

Students for Reagan director Bruce
Weinfeld said he has no doubt that
students overwhelmingly support Ronald
Reagan. "People are more educated, they
know the real facts as opposed to the
rhetoric of the past," he asserted.
There are, Gelbman maintained, several
reasons for students' changing attitudes.
"The job market for students has
decreased (during the terms of the last two
presidents), so students are more acutely
aware of practical needs," Gelbman explained, adding, "students as a whole tend
to be rebellious. The liberalism of the '60's
is now the professors', and students are
rebelling against that."
In addition, Gelbman said, students are

Library check-outs to get faster
By Robin Katz
Students can now check-out the
books they need from the University library, supermarket-style.
A "barcode," similar to UPC
symbols, will be placed on all student I.D. cards as part of the
library's effort to switch to a new
computer system which will
enable quicker check-outs and
better access to library resources,
according to Library Director
Josephy Z. Nitecki.
The system, which the library is
paying $462,000 for, will use
"light wands" or sensors to read
the codes off the back of a student's I.D. and the book being
charged out. Nitecki said the
money is being taken from both
university and library equipment
Nitecki said the new system will
be completely in place by the end
of this semester. "Over one
million physical items are in the
library and they need to have barcodes placed in them," before the
system can be fully implemented,
he said.
"Each I.D. sticker, (known as)
the barcode, is like a price label in
a" supermarket" Nitecki said.
Barcodes will also be placed on
the books. The I.D. code will be
read by the computer and matched to the code of the book being
taken out. "This is comparable to
the way a price of a good is read
by a computer in a market and
matched to the bill," he
"The new system will speed up
checking out books," said Carol
Anderson, assistant director of
access services, adding, "More
statistical information about
library books will be available.
Data about location of books will
be accessible more quickly.
Automatic blocking devices will
bar students with overdue books
from taking out additional ones.
We can get the books back
quicker with this method."
"New I.D.s are being labeled
but the old ones need the bar
codes as well," Anderson explained. When checking out books,
students with old I.D. cards are
Filling out registration forms to
receive their barcodes, she added.
"48,000 I.D. cards and 15,000
books have been coded already.
We have to code more before the
system can be effective," Anderson said.
"We won't wait till bar codes
are placed in all the books to
begin," Nitecki said. During the
transition period the system will
work more slowly than it will
after normal operations begin,
Nitecki said. "The user will
benefit from its speed when transition has ended though," Nitecki
A system similar to SUNYA's
new system is already in place at
several other SUNY's, Anderson
said. "It has already been installed in Purchase and at Buffalo.
Binghamton is in the midst of installing it." She added that
Stonybrook has the system, but
has not yet made a firm
SUNYA started a task force
three years ago to search for a
new automated system, according
to Anderson.
Nitecki explained, "All groups,
including library faculty and
technical experts, consulted and
decided that this new system was
feasible. Students were consulted,
as well, to get their feedback
about the plan."
Nitecki noted the possible
future benefits of the system, saying "We have our own computer
system now. In the near
future . . . students might even
have catalogs on computer terminals in their dorm rooms. Card
catalogs might become computerized on the new computer."
"These plans are in the future
but in the long range," he said,
"at the pace at which computer
research is advancing maybe not
as long as we think."

Disabled students have been

parking spaces; as a result Student Association officials have
cracked down on vandals, and illegal parkers.
University Action for the
Disabled,. (UAD), along with SA,
have developed a plan to combat
the problem.
To kick off this awareness campaign, Central Council
unanimously passed a resolution
Wednesday night denouncing all
vandalism to special equipment
and the abuse of disabled parking
spots and supporting "full
punishment for such offenders."
The resolution was introduced by
SA President Rich Schaffer and
other SA officials.
The five part plan, which was
developed by UAD member Sandra Lamb and Schaffer, was announced during UAD's interest
meeting Monday and calls for the
support of all SA officials and
group leaders.
Lamb and Schaffer's awareness
campaign induce letters .being
sent to the editors of the Albany
Student Press, The Student
Voice, and all SA group leaders.
In addition, UAD will sponsor
awareness workshops with SA
groups. SA will also demand
greater enforcement of disabled
parking regulations.
To combat the parking problem, UAD will start its own
ticketing campaign, placing
notices on illegally parked cars informing the drivers of the law.
According to UAD VicePresident Robert Pipia, a New
York State law permits a $40 fine
to be levied against cars illegally
parked in disabled parking spots.
According to a source in public
safety, however, the fine would
only be $3, consistant with all oncampui parking fines.

that parking in disabled spots is illegal, Schaffer said. "If they will
not abide by university regulations, we don't want their

the university in enforcing the
"We're not going to stand for
any of this," said Schaffer, who
said he had been unaware of the
severity of the vandalism until approached by Lamb. According to
Schaffer, all publicity of the
situation will reinforce the fact
that vandalism can't be tolerated
on this campus. "Vandalism
shouldn't even be an issue," he
According to Lamb, recent
destruction of equipment has included the breaking of the special
plexi-glass information board on
the side of the information desk
in the Campus Center.
The information board had
been specifically constructed at
the request of UAD in order that
students in wheelchairs would be
able to see memos usually kept on

have also been damaged, explained Lamb, who added that that
plant department is planning to
install more electric doors on
campus. "Cost is a big factor in
repairing the equipment," Lamb
said, adding that it takes a lot of
time to order replacement parts
and complete the repairs.
"UAD and the (Physical) plant'
are working very closely to get
these things repaired," said Dennis Stevens, Director of -the

"I specifically asked the girl when I bought it
about what if I lose this little sticker, and she said,

'Great Danes' motif.
Spirit Committee aims its efforts
towards increasing school pride
By Rick Swanson
The stands surrounding the football field have
been empty long enough.
To rectify the situation, Student Association has
declared this week "Spirit Week," and hopes to
end the festivities with a sell-out crowd at Saturday's homecoming football game against SUNYCortiand.
Spirit Week, which began Wednesday with Quad
Wars at the Rat, has been part of an effort by the
newly formed Spirit Committee to build SUNYA's
school spirit.
Student Association Director of Student Programming Patty Salkin said the purpose of the
week has been to get people to "have fun and support the school and the football team."
"People are really into it," said Salkin, referring
to the response which has greeted Spirit Week, in
particular the Banner Contest.
The Spirit Committee will award ten pizza pies to
the group which designs the best banner displayed
at the Homecoming game.
Spirit Committee Chair Jane Rand said that in
addition to the banner contest, committee workers
are handing out raffle tickets to students wearing
purple and gold on" Friday.
Winning tickets from the "I spot U" raffle
giveaway will be picked, at the Homecoming game.
Prizes will be coupons good for one record at
SUNYtunes, the record co-op.
Balloons will be given out to the first 200 people
attending Saturday's game, contributing to the
festivities. Rand said. In addition, purple and gold
pom-poms will be sold.
1987 Class Council President Jackie Bernstein
noted that at the Danes' first home game, in sharp
contrast to previous years, there was a large

Bowling champ bids farewell to campus lanes
By Lisa Mirabel la
In the 33 years he's been managing
bowling alleys, SUNYA students have
graduated from wearing bobby socks and
DA haircuts to jeans and tshirts, but, says Nelson
Swart, bowling has always
_ _ '
been popular.
Swart managed the
University lanes on the uptown campus for
the past 17 years until his retirement two
weeks ago.
Swart originally owned the bowling
lanes in the Rice Building on the corner of
Western and Quail, when students with
bobby socks and DA haircuts started taking University bowling classes there. They
comprised 40 percent of his business.
He said his feeling for the customers has
not changed. "You have to learn to accomodate them, whether they're students
or people outside the University. You have
to be congenial and make sure they have a
nice, clean area to bowl in."
However, Swart said, a more difficult
part of the job is maintaining the machines
in the alleys. He said he went to school in
1937 to learn how the machines he was
leasing form AMF worked. Tall and lean,
with a quiet manner, he modestly admitted
that he is "a little mechanically inclined".
When the University moved to the uptown campus, which came complete with •

the first manager. He attributed that partly

Swart has been bowling since 1935, and
was at one time involved in five leagues in
the Capitol District simultaneously. His
asverage peaked at 212, and he has one at
least 50 trophies. "They just collect dust,"
he says in his simple but direct manner.
Lately he has been bowling a 167;

War II took him from Albany, where he
graduated from Albany High School in
1935, to a field artillery unit in the U.S.
Army, and he spent time stationed in
Trinidad and Europe.
"You have to know
the machines and
know how to keep
them running."
After the war, Swart was working at a

Whatever the reasons, the latest cries of racism and
other harsh words flung across the Central Council table
remind us that issues of equal rights are hard fought, and
that the barriers of mutual understanding, or discrimination, don't fall easily.
Last week, after heated debate, Central Council
voted down the appointment of Laura Johnson to a
seat on the UAS Board of Directors. Laura is a black
This week. Central Council approved the appointment of Ross Abelow to a seat on the UAS Board of
Directors. Ross is a white man. With a questionable
But there is more to this scenario than a case of
racism and/or sexism.
Behind all the bitterness, the accusations, frustration and confusion seem to be three things:
•conflicts of commitment to equal rights and antidiscrimination within SA
•a lack of mutual sensitivity — sometimes approaching open hostility — between some minority
and non-minority student leaders
•and an interview process for SA appointments that
sometimes falls short in thoroughness and intent.
SA's commitment to non-discrimination has been
growing steadily in the p u t few years. Unfortunately, most of that commitment comes from the top.
The executive branch has become increasingly
enlightened, but many membe>- of Central Council
remain difficult to reacf .<«•'- 'here is, more
minority involvement in SA and ideate, concern for
for minority issues the Council tai e remains a hotbed of antagonism and a difficult budge to cross.
T a k e for example the case of Laura Johnson.
In order to receive the position she applied for,
Laura — like all other applicants — would have to
pass three tests: First, an interview with SA executive
officers; second, an interview with the Internal Affairs Committee of Central Council; and third a vote
by the entire Council.
Laura was approved after her first interview.
Among her qualifications were two personal accomplishments: working out a proposal to increase
minority hiring by UAS in the quads and the campus
center, and getting the bookstore to sell hair care
products for blacks.
In her second interview, with Internal Affairs,
Laura reportedly floundered, and gave inconsistant
answers. Reason enough not to approve her appointment, right?
Well, this is where mutual understanding comes
in. Laura's first interview was with people who are
dedicated to non-discrimination: men, women,
black and white, including SA's minority affairs
The second interview was with four white men
whose sympathies with — or against — minorities
were unknown. A black woman walking into that
situation is automatically going to feel a good deal of
intimidation. The difference between the two interview setups was bound to yield some dubious results.
Curiously, Ross Abelow made it through both
interviews and the vote with seeming ease. Yet, last
semester he admittedly ran a large party on State
Quad without a liquor license, violating university
regulations and Albany city law. Then he lied to
university officials in order to keep the party going.
Though one may admire Abelow's maverick enthusiasm, it still seems a tad bizarre that the interview process, with its standard set of questions,
could not include a discussion of Ross' questionable
past. The issue did not come up while Council approved his appointment.
In the wake of this confusing controversy we find
an interview process which denied a uniquely
qualified applicant while approving a uniquely questionable one.
And where student leaders on both sides of the
issue should have made an extra effort to work
together, we find severe resentment, antagonism and
close-minded defensiveness.
And we find Laura Johnson, who is left in this
wake as a victim of discrimination.
To pass this off simply as discrimination or as an
overreaction by minorities is unfair. SA has been
making a sincere effort to ensure equality within its
organization and throughout the campus. But there
are obviously still problems, both with the system
and with some of the people who run it.
Hopefully, everyone involved will learn from the
examples of Laura Johnson and Ross Abelo.w.
Religion and Politics, why not?
The issue of politics and religion has captured a great
deal of media attention recently and, not surprisingly i
this election year many of our political leaders have taken
liberty to comment on the volatile subject. The general
concensus being drummed up, largely by the media, is
that there is too much involvement on the part of churches into public policy. Several nights ago, for example,
CBS News ran a special report on "Religion and Politics"
in which anchorman Dan Rather commented:
"Americans appear to be telling us that they see the growing merger of church and state in our society...and disapprove of it."
fact, and not a challenge to the Constitution.
There are many, however, who continue a crusade
against organized religion for other reasons. Feminists,
those who favor "gay rights", abortion, and pornography are at the forefront of the movement to banish
religion from politics. And why is this? The answer is obvious. Because organized religion poses a serious threat to
them. Whether it is the Catholic Church's stance on abortion, or the Moral Majority's efforts! to limit pornography, the church is at odds with these social reformists. If religion were to exit the scene, then what would
follow becomes obvious, and that is that those organizations which oppose church positions become dominant'..
Naturally, their argument is not as blunt as this. It
Craig J. Rucker
follows something like "If religion were to be separated
A CBS News poll went on to show that over 70 per cent from politics, then public policy would be free from any

to "purify" politics of religion.
The source of this current antagonism is not entirely
clear. Perhaps the answer is as obvious as what President
Reagan articulated in a prayer breakfast in Dallas, and
that is that many "Americans who follow rigorous
separation of church and state are intolerant of religion."
What is evident, however, is that this effort will fail. To
attempt to form clevages between the two is not only impracticable, but socially undesirable as well. The churchstate linkage is older than America itself, and for the
media to instill fear over this issue is quite unfounded.
Of course, one should not imply that there has always
been harmony between the two. For centuries, there has
been much blood spilt because individuals worship God
differently. From old world conflicts such as the crusades
and the Protestant Reformation to more recent conflicts
in Lebanon and Ireland, religion and politics has contributed a great deal to human misery. So our founding
fathers were indeed wise when they decided that our new
nation should not be either Catholic or Protestant, as
were many other nations at the time. Instead it was laid
down that Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, or atheists should
be equally free to worship or not worship if they choose.
But neither the founding fathers nor the current
political aspirants have it within their power to prevent
people's views abour Ood and Man from entering secular
public issues. There are many controversies involving
moral questions, and moral questions can never be completely separated from our religious views. Thus, when
President Reagan asserts that "Politics and religion are
necessarily related," he is merely bellowing a statement of
them, superior to those of a religious person's? No one
deniej the reformist the right to promote their views
because few realize that these individuals are placing their
own set of "morals" on society. But when churches intervene to oppose reformist positions, then the battle of
"separation" is sounded. In short, while it is apparently
acceptable for all the reformist to argue their case, a commandment exists somewhere forbidding the churches
from expressing theirs.
One can only presume that the church-state controversy will go on for some time, or at least until November 7.
After the election, the issue will probably lie down and go
into hibernation until four years have passes and the time
has come to choose a new leader. Unfortunately for the
reformists, it seems as though the only way to quell
religious influence on public policy is to outlaw it, as do
our comrades in Moscow and Eastern Europe. If it
becomes our intention to do so, then fine. But one only
need to see how successful Polish leaders have been in trying to circumvent the Catholic Church to get an appreciation of how successful this policy would be.

with Celestion) almost ruins the song
because it's so patently trying to be a
rhyme, it's ridiculous. That isn't the way it's
done anymore, fellas; but the song is excellent anyway.
The album closes with "Sacrificial
Alter," a song whose chorus;

evokes decidedly mixed reactions; it's a
neat visual concept, but there's a decided
feeling a deja vu to what's being said.
Overall, the Swimming Pool Q's is a
strong LP, sure to get airplay on the alternative market. However, unfortunately for
any commercial aspirations Calder and
company might harbor. The Swimming
Pool Q's is not the album that's going to
break this band mainstream. With a little
luck though, perhaps the students who go
in to see Lou Reed this Sunday night will
discover another facet of alternative music;
the "hickadelic" realm that seems to belong
solely to The Swimming Pool Q's.
A Reason For Truancy * Teachers
nybody see Up the Down Staircase! Good movie, huh? I saw it for
the first time a few years back. It's a
film about the everyday events of a ghetto
high school, the students who attend the
school, and the teachers who teach there. I
saw it again last Saturday night. Nick Nolte
played Miss Harper, Jobeth Williams was
Joe Firrone, Ralph Macchio was Jose
Scott Eisenthal
.. .Oh shit, wrong movie. However, for
the same storyline, characters, and message
as the 1965 Sandy Dennis film, there's no
need to look any further than Teachers, a
new film by Arthur Hiller. It may go down
in history as the film most resembling the
film it's supposed to satirize.
John F. Kennedy High School is your
typical run-of-the-mill school that has been
completely fouled up by the "system."
And it is this system that history teacher
Alex Girrelle (Nick Nolte) spends the
whole film trying to beat. It seems that
several years ago, the school passed a student and allowed him to graduate while
overlooking one small factor of his education (or lack thereof). He couldn't read. Apparently nobody made anything of it at the
time, but now the former student's parents
are filing suit against the school district for
not educating the student properly. They
hire a small law firm to handle the case,
and the main responsibility for prosecuting
the school is thrown into the hands of J.F.K
graduate turned lawyer (Jobeth Williams).
She enters her alma mater one Monday
morning to find it has gone completely to
pot. It is here that the audience is introduc
ed to the student body, a group of two
thousand lewd, loud, obnoxious teenagers
who, like most ltiu,h school students, would
rjther be doing something else with those
dull six hours each day. They file into class
(or at least some of them do), and alas, we
meet the saviors with desk blotters, the
teachers. There's Mr. Rosenberger the
wimp (Allen Garfield), Mr. Van Ark, the
psycho (Richard Mulligan), Mr. Sials the
stuffed shirt (Arthur Hill), and Mr. Horn,
the incompetent principal (William
The central character is Nolte's Alex Girrelle, who carries the plot and the message
behind it by seducing the prosecuter
(Williams), fighting the education problem,
and keeping certain students out of trouble. One of those students is Eddie
Pellickian (Ralph Macchio), a habitual
troublemaker, who gets most of the laughs
by setting off the fire alarm in order to cut
class, stealing a driver ed car, making offensive wisecracks in class, purposely misinterpreting the class project, and dropping in
and out of classes on a regular basis. Girrelle uses Eddie to get the message across
by convincing him to take his class and
make an effort to learn. Although the
chemistry between the two characters is
strong, Nolte's performance is too macho
for a movie style teacher, and Macchio is
too sensible and sensitive for a street kid.
Jobeth Williams gives a fair performance as
Lisa Hammond-, the prosecuter, but despite
the fact that she has the only substantial
female role in the film, she really is not
given any of the good lines. Supposedly,
her moment to shine is when she strips and
walks naked down a school corrider while
shouting a holier-than-thou speech at
Nolte, but even that does not come of as J
well as It could. Thecharacters of, the other
teachers appear as if they were developed
as seen through eyes of a rebellious high
school student, and are, if nothing else,
The antics of the students and the
message of the teachers is supported by the
flimsy plot dealing with the lawsuit. The
problem is that the plot never gets off the
ground, mainly because the film keeps shifting back to the classroom routines for a
laugh here and there in order to avoid boring the audience. The most disappointing
thing about the film is that it had two
choices to be a success, and chose neither
of them. It could have been a dramatic
satire with the humor in ideas and hidden
jokes rather than sight gags and student antics, which could have given it the effect on
people's views on education that Network
had on their views on the media or that Being There had on political views, or it
could have gone for straight comedy
without the overstated message and ideas,
in which case it might have grabbed the
teenage moviegoing audience left, right,
and sideways. But it went with a poor mixture of comedy and drama, and turned out
to be less than satisfying.
If possible, steer clear of Teachers, but if
it's a pretty dull Saturday night, take a
chance at this mediocre comedy-satire for a
few laughs.

i How To Stop Worrying and Love The Bombt'
The Red Button Bomb
A Blast From The Past
by Joseph Fusco
You and I (our generation) have grown up in the
shadow of a threat. As impossible as it is to go
backward in time, so it is to walk out into the sunshine. We live in a world that can be swept into the
dumpster in the twinkling of an eye.
Very much so.
There is something that only .very recently
began to seem wrong to me — to you and me. Experts — politicians, scientists — many of them
very wrinkled, their faces frought with consternation, inform us of the uniqueness of the Nuclear
Age, awed, as well they should be (as well we
should be): "Humanity, like never before,
possesses the power to destroy the earth."
But we already knew that.
But that's all we've known.
You and I.
The point being this: our generation has spent
our entire lives in a world where the threat of
nuclear extinction is a fact. Our grandparents and
parents do not share this totality; words like "like
never before" mean nothing to you and me,
history texts aside.
I wonder: what would it be like to wake up
every day knowing it would take an awfully long
time to destroy the earth?
When I was very young my parents would set
me down in front of the television, perhaps to
keep me from swallowing anything caustic while
they did the dishes. My after dinner pre-school
world became NBC News. It was probably just as
My distinct memory is not of The Anchorman
but what was behind him. While he spoke, the
Do they know that there are people and death
and horror underneath the abstraction of cartoon
Do they realize violence isn't a game, it's never
over, and corpses don't stand up and brush
themselves off?
We neighborhood children used to have Great
Gun Battles. We'd whoop, holler, stalk, giggle,
wake up
it would
time to
would it be like to
every day knowing
take an awful long
destroy the earth?
Every day I'd be set down in front of the television. Every day the cartoon explosions would be
rearranged. What a game.
This was during the Vietnam War. I had no idea
what a bomb was,
My mother was the first to tell me about lots of
things. She was the first to tell me about nuclear
bombs. She explained to me that we had enemies.
We and our enemies had something that, if we
ever happened to hate each other more than everyday enemies hate each other, could blow up the
world. She told me we had... the Red Button
Red Button Bomb. Blow up the world.
I was so young.
Oh boy.
The imagination is a child's art. It is where
children create their pictures of an adult world. It is
the source and often the limit of their expression. It
explains for them; it makes order out of chaos. A
child's imagination defines.
This is what I imagined.
I knew bombs were dropped from airplanes but
I didn't know they were shiny silver thumbs with
I imagined a bomb to be rather large and amorphous, like a loosely packed mudball. And, of
course, there was always a Red Button on top of
the loosely packed mudball.
In the midst of all the hate, the Red Button was
pressed and whoosh there went the Red Button
Bomb. Whoosh, whoosh, whoosh.
Oh yes, I also believed bombs could be planted
and the Red Button pushed. Boom.
Regardless, the Bomb would blow up the
Crack? Yes, crack, because to this child a Blown
Up World was disfigured. I imagined a blown up
world as cracked in half and in my mind's eye I saw
the jagged half of a baby blue eggshelKnow
somewhat soiled)floating in space.
Half the world would, literally, be gone.
I was young, optimistic and invincible. I felt sure
that I would be on the half-earth that remained.
De facto.
And why not. After all, my country had shown
me that it could make a hell of a lot more cartoon
explosions than anyone else. We practiced often.
No one had more mudballs than we did, it
I would live. The Red Button Bomb was just going to have to be something someone else would
need to fear.
The Red Button Bomb.
Blow Up The World.
Oh, boy.
shoot and die very dramatically as was the essence
of the affair. We mimicked hate, bloodlust and partisanship. It was a fun game and we played it over
and over because our violence never had any
When the game was over, the corpses stood up,
brushed themselves off, and checked to see if their
pistols needed more water.
I wonder what children today are imagining. Do
they assume they'll be among the lucky ones on
the remaining fragment of this planet?
Do they think bombs are solutions?
Do they learn to distrust different and distant
people, creating a world of "us" and "them"?
I bristled over the debate as to whether schoolaged children should have watched programs like
The Day After. Apparently some people thought
it would be too upsetting, but, I pleaded, they
should be aware, at least. Granted, The Day After
was dilute, yet the issue is the days after and more
importantly, The Years Before.
Generation after generation, like ours, will continue to be born into a world armed with nuclear
weapons and a world conditioned to violence. Like
myself at avery young age, they may be temporarily misled. Yet misled is incorrect —' uninformed is more accurate. "Uninformed" under the
nuclear shadow makes no sense, even in the beginning of youth.
The facts of the Nuclear Age(they are inescapable)are something I've rarely heard discussed •
between parents and children and in our schools. I
wonder why we hesitate to discuss truly Wfa/issues
with the young. Is it because of horror and denial7
Is it because we don't want to scare the hell out of
little children? I hope not.
Let children grow up with a willingness to deal
with a reality that will be as present in their day as
it is in ours.
Let us hope that children will grow up with the
ability to deal with war, death and hate and then
turn their minds to better things.

PAC Attack'
Eumenides Opening At The PAC
For this production, characterized as a
synthesis of the old and new, Aeschylus'
themes will be expressed in a union of
movement, music and text, using the
Richard Lattimore translation.
Valis-Hill, inspired by traditional Greek,
Hungarian, and Macedonian folk music
and dance, collaborated with David
Janower, choral director of the University
Department, and percussionist Richard
Albagli on the musical score. Robert Donnelly designed the set and Linda Salsbury
created the costumes for this production.
Both are department theatre members. The
masks, truly gruesome and effective personifications of the vengeful Furies' raw
emotions : anger, pain, grief, and fear,
were designed by Donna Muir, costumer
of the Department of Theatre. Prominent
members of the large cast include : John
Fox (Orestes), Catherine Bulger (Electra),
Lori Healy (Apollo), Steve Hart (Hermes),
M. Susan Peck (Ghost of Clytaemestra),
Leslie May (Athene), and the twelve furies
(Maureen A. tBrophy, Kathleen Donohue,
Tina Krimmer, Marcelle Langan, Leesa
Markbriter, Elizabeth M. Mazon, Maria
Memole, Angela O'Neal, Michaela Rielly,
Karen Sherman, Rebecca Weitman, and
Ginger Williams... whew.)
he SUNY Albany theatre season is
back (with a vengeance) as the £umienides (or, The Furies), the third
play of Aeschylus' timeless dramatic
trilogy, the Oresteia, opera October 19 at
the main theater of the University Performing Arts Center.
Mark Latino
Director Constance Valis-Hill doesn't
buy the notion that SUN YA students will
be "turned off" by this classical production.The bouyant seven year member o f
the University Theater faculty expects the
(you-men-uh-dees) will
generate an avid interest from a curious
student body. 'This is a rare opportunity
for students to see the spectacle come to
life, rather than just reading the words on
the printed page." Moreover, as Valis-Hill
emphasizes, though the play is ancient, its
themes (revenge, for example) are timeless
and bear significance to today's audience.
The Eumenides represents somewhat of
a departure from the "typical" Greek
tragedy (actually, scholars have not yet
been able to develop an exact definition
for this classical genre), for it marks an ending to the ancient Greek'legend of the
bloody house of Atreus. A Greek society,
once terrorized by violent moral chaos,
adopts a more rational, humane order as
Orestes is freed from the pursuit of the
Furies, who are the vengeful spirits of
Clytaemestra, Orestes mother. Orestes killed her to avenge the murder of Agamemnon, his father. In this story the goddess
Athene clears Orestes of guilt and appeases
the Furies, w h o are subsequently
transformed into fertility goddesses, the
Eumenides ("Kindly Ones"),
i Valis-Hill characterizes the Eumenides
production "a pleasure for the eyes... A
larger than life spectacle with a stylized
visual look."
Constance Valis-Hill, well-known to the
C a p i t a l D i s t r i c t , as a d a n c e r ,
choreographer, and mime, selected the
Eumenides for several reasons. She was
c o m p e l l e d b y t h e c h a l l e n g e of
choreographing three choral groups: the
Furies, Athenian Women, and the
Euminides. The dance that she found particularly challenging was " O Mother
Night". More importantly, she wanted to
incorporate her theatre main stage offering
with the in-depth study of Greek Classical
theatre in her classes. "Students will gain an
understanding and appreciation of this important trilogy."
So, write Eumenides, 8pm, Performing
Arts Center under any 6f these dates on
your calender of important events : Friday
and Saturday, October 19 and 20, and the
following Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
The admission fees, $6 general admission
and $4 student-serJor citizen , are a steal.
They afford the avid, or "once a year"
theatre goer the opportunity to see poetic
drama, the excitement and vivid imagery
of which is, thus far, unsurpassed by any of
the more modern forms of theatre. Tor further information, contact Alton McCloud,

Farces, Faces, Features
and the Ugly Guy
By Jim tally
i! We're the Intruding Dudes: t w o dynamic, sensitive young men, w h o
feel that students here at SUNYA d o not get an opportunity t o state
their beef. As responsible journalists, we hope to bring to light m a n y .
major issues that confront this university today.
Very recently, a certain writer, in a certain magazine, stated that this college
has the least campus spirit in the nation (USA). W e decided to find out for
ourselves first-hand what the students thought. So, this week w e asked
hroughout recorded time, the Ugly
Guy and the Intelligent guy have
been inexorably linked in the
inds of many. This fusion has produced
uch well-known social types as the Nerd,
he Geek, the Spaz, and the ever-popular
ombat. While it is obviously untrue and
iscriminatory to claim that facial
deousness equals mental prowess, it is
omforting to think that when the Lord
in His infinite wisdom, decides to
eate a face that we less high-minded be: might term a "two-bagger," he packs
inside of the face with a little extra
rains to help the poor bugger (bagger?)
Certainly there are examples enough in
ecent history to make this attractive
heory plausible. Albert Einstein, for examle, practically proves my case all by
There are, however, differing interpretations as to the cause of this phenomenon;
more specifically, why God (or whoever's
doing this to us) planned it exactly that
way. Izwald ("Warty") Kostock of
Princeton University, noted Geek and nationally lauded Ugly Guy, has said in his
famous monologue, "Ugliness and Virginity: Is There A Connection?" that the rationale for creating intelligent ugly guys is
a purely unpleasant one.
'The intelligent Ugly Guy," Kostock
states/carries a special burden. He's ugly.
And he's too smart not to know it."
This unappetizing theory would appear
" W h a t d o e s c a m p u s spirit m e a n t o y o u ? "
"Well, I've never seen it myself, but I'm
sure if there is a ghost on campus, it isn't
mean. It's never bothered any of my
friends. It's probably just trying to get into
the business school like everybody else."
Phil M. (State)
' true, for while the ugly guy with the dullto-average mentality might have enough of
an ego to force himself to believe
statements like, "I'm sorry, but I have to
stay home Friday night to bathe my
anaconda," the more savvy ugly guy
would have trouble accepting this as truth.
Other authorities have reacted with
scorn to Kostock's theory, however. An
drew (Buck) Courtney of Oxford Universi
ty (Squash, Crew, '68) has countered "Aw
he's ugly and his mother dresses him fun
ny," a statement which, of course, can'l
really be areued. However, Kostock claims
this has nffbearing.
In either case, though, it's obvious that
intelligent ugly guys have an added strain.
And very small egos.

"Well, I'm not sure about that, not bein'
a student and all, but I think the kids are
terrific the way they leave those cans

Wilbur T. (Non-student)
"I'm damn proud of this school. I was
just reading in this magazine how SUNY
Albany has the most apathy of any college
in this country. I mean, I'm not sure what
apathy is, but I think it's pretty terrific that
we've got the most right here at Albany."
Serm W. (Alumni)
"It means loyalty and appreciation for
one's university. It means sharing and taking part in school activities. But most of all,
it means getting the right rear window
sticker for your car."
Jerry C. (Commuter)
"Campus spirit to me is knowing
the S.A. President is. Uh...By
way...Uh... Who is...?"
Steve C. (Dutch)
"Camp Uh-Spirit? Where's that? Canada?
It sounds like a great place. Say, you guys

Philobolus At Proctor's;
A Visual Experience
onight, the dance troupe Philobolus leaps and crawls onto the stage at
Proctor's theatre in Schenectady. Originating from the dance studios at
Dartmouth over ten years ago, this group has created its o w n niche im
the dance world, they mix modern dance with a spatial representation of
primordial themes. They have been described as kinetic sculpture, performing
to a varied range of music.
To see Philobolus, is to understand w h y Newsweek has hailed them as
Dance's Marx Brothers and Houdini rolled into one. They move across the
stage in jumps and leaps akin to gymnastics, yet blend the grace and beauty of
classical modern. The dancers have the ability to mold their in such a way as to
negate the theory of physics, as they balance upon one another and inch across
the stage • the next instant, splitting apart in an acrobatic explosion. You'll be
entertained as well as intrigued by the unexpected transformations from erotic
themes to pure comedy as they take you through the evening.
It is a dance event not to be missed and will be long remembered. Especially
for students, Proctor's Theatre has a special 50 percent discount off all tickets,
when you arrive an hour before the performance, which begins at 8:00pm.

ant who asked not to be identified.
According to surveys taken by Karlson's
ffice over the past two years, the average
)ff-campus student paid $125 a month,
ncluding heat and utilities.
Students in the apartments under incstigation said Buckman did nut inform
hem of the grouper law ordinance before
hey rented the house.
Buckman has a record of complaints
igainst him on file with the SUNYA Student Association's Off-Campus Housing
Office. Complaints range from problems
with heating houses to leaks in bedroom
Two of the bedrooms in one apartment
"could be closets," according to the
students living there. They added that only
two out of the five bedrooms in that apartment contain built-in closets.
SA Attorney Mark Mishler said he
"would not classify him (Buckman) as one
of the worst" landlords in Albany.
There probably are more houses, like
the one near Quail Street, that contain 14
or more students, said Mishler, explaining,
"landlords are out to make money."
Mishler, Karlson and Alvaro all recommended that students faced with an inspection of their apartment or house should
cooperate with the Code Enforcement
Bureau officials.
Alvaro reported several incidents of
students resisting inspections, and one case
where "students 'sikked' a dog on an inspector" who came to their door.
Mishler said students should not view
the inspectors as "enemies," and that,
"assuming the students have nothing to
hide," they should "show the inspector
around and point out problems.''

Put in a personal!
An important aspect of the
decision, said Schaffer, is that
although Auerbach vs. McKinley
initially applied only to SUNYA
students, the decision now applies
to all students in New York State
at all colleges and universities, not
just SUNY schools.
According to Wray, SASU had
to sue "county by county . . . it's
been tremendously time consuming," which explained the delay
of over three years in the decision.
SASU initially facilitated litigation against boards of election
which discriminated against
students in 1981..
The decision, Wray said, shows
that "students are full-class,
responsible citizens, and deserve
the same rights as non-students."
According to SASU, New York
has become the forty-ninth state
to grant students voting rights.
"Only Alaska continues this
discriminatory practice," said
Wray, adding, "you can, be sure

Iran and the embassy in
" . . . I almost resent, Vice
President Bush, your patronizing
attitude that you have to teach me
about foreign policy," she
". . . Secondly, please don't
categorize my answers either.
Leave the interpretation of my
answers to the American people
who are watching this debate.
Bush said terrorism is "very,
very difficult to stop and I think
everybody knows that." He lauded President Reagan for accepting
the blame for the bombing of
U.S. installations in Beirut, "But
I think fair-minded people that
really understand international
terrorism know that it is really
hard to guard against."
But Ms. Ferraro asserted the
administration should have done
more to guard the embassy. "Are
we going to take the proper
precautions before we put
Americans in situations where
they are going to be in danger or
are we just going to walk away
and t h r o w our arms
up . . . When is the president going to take some action?"
' Bush accused Ferraro of saying
< the Marines killed in Lebanon
died in shame, but she shot back:
"No one has ever said those killed
through the negligence of this administration died in shame."
Ferraro attacked Reagan's version of prosperity as well, saying,
"Things are not as great as the
administration is wanting us to
believe in their television commercials." She added that housing
mortgage rates are 14.S percent,
that 6 million people are below
the poverty level and that SOO.000
people have been taken off
disability rolls.
Bush said, President Reagan
"has turned this country
around." He said the administration of Jimmy Carter that Reagan
defeated in 1980 "delivered 21.5
percent interest rates. They
delivered what they called
malaise. They delivered interest
rates that were right off the
Ferraro also accused the administration of failing to take a
strong stand on civil rights,
noting, at the same time that she
and her running mate Waiter
Mondale oppose quotas to
achieve racial equality.
Bush responded by criticizing
Mondale for "saying everything
is bad. If somebody sees a silver
lining, he sees a black cloud out
. there. Whine on, harvest moon."
Bush also strongly rebuked Ferraro's pro-choice abortion stand,
saying "there's been 15 million
I abortions since 1973 and I don't
take that lightly." He said he sup' ported Reagan's position on
abortion and, like Reagan, favors
a "human rights amendment" to
• the Constitution.
He also denied that the administration's support of voluntary prayer in the schools was a
merging of church and state.
Ferraro argued that the intrusion of religion into politics
started in 1980 when Rev. Jerry
Falwell became Involved in
Reagan's presidential campaign.
On abortion, Ferraro, a
Catholic, said she could not impose her religious views on others.
"If there comes a time where I
cannot practice my religion and
do my job properly, I will resign
my job," she said.
State law makes unsafe tenant conditions illegal
By Mark Mishit*
Contrary to popular belief,
tenants in Albany are not totally
at the mercy of their landlords. If
the condition of your apartment
is not quite what you
expected, you may It's
have certain legal
rights and remedies.
The most important law in New York Law
State for tenants is
the "warrant of habitability" law
enacted in 1975 to protect tenants
from unsafe or dangerous conditions in apartments. A "warranty" is a promise. This law provides that every agreement for the
rental of residential premises is
deemed to contain a promise by
the landlord that the premises are
habitable and contain no conditions which are dangerous, hazardous or detrimental to the tenant's life, health or safety. Both
written and oral leases are
covered by this implied warranty
of habitability.
The wording of this law Mark Mishler is an attorney and
Director of Legal Services.
dangerous, hazardous or
detrimental to life, health or safety • is purposefully broad. Included within its scope are problems
such as inadequate heat, poor
ventilation, defective plumbing.
Insect or rodent infestation, poor
security and ceiling leaks. In fact,
any problem relating to health or
safety comes under this law.
One limitation does apply to
the protections afforded by the
warranty of habitability law. If
the unsafe condition was caused
by misconduct of the tenant or
persons under the tenant's control then the landlord is not held
responsible. Many situations exist
where it is not clear whether the
condition was caused, at least in
part, by the tenants. If such a
question arises, the final decision
would be made by the judge hearing the case. While the law provides an exception for conditionscaused by the tenant's misconduct, there is no requirement that
the condition be caused by the
landlord's misconduct in order to
come within the scope of the law.
Only two factors are required for
the law to apply: (1) a condition
exists which may be dangerous,
hazardous or detrimental to life,
health or safety and (2) the condition was not caused by the
Assuming the existence of a
condition covered by the warranty of habitability law, what can
you do? The statute itself does
not provide any specific remedies,
but the courts have developed two
types of remedies for' tenants
when the warranty of habitability
is breached. First, you may be entitled to a reduction in the
amount of rent which would
otherwise be due to the landlord.
The reduction in rent will reflect
the decreased value of the apartment due to the unsafe condition.
Second, if you have been injured
or any of your property damaged
as a result of the defective condition then you arc entitled to be
compensated for such damage or
In seeking legal redress you can
choose either a defensive or affirmative posture. The landlord can
be sued for damages or you can
withhold a portion of rent and
wait for the landlord to initiate a
suit. If the landlord sues you it is
possible to make the judge aware
of the unsafe conditions in the
apartment by raising defenses
and/or counterclaims to the
lawsuit. Do not take any of these
steps without first contacting an
may ask the Code Enforcement
Bureau of the City of Albany to
conduct an Inspection of the
apartment. Be there when the inspection takes place so you can
point out the problems to the inspector. The inspector will
prepare a report and will contact
the landlord if any bioUtions of
the Housing Code have been
found. The report is available to
you and is helpful as documentation of the defects in the apartment. If the landlord still does not
make the necessary repairs you
should consider bringing the
landlord to court or withholding a
portion of the rent. Again, do not
take these Steps until you have
spoken with an attorney.
Your rights under the warranty
of habitability law cannot be
waived. If you 'sign a lease containing a waiver of these rights,
the waiver (not the lease) is invalid. Leases often contain two
types of provisions which are at-
tempts to have tenants waive
rights under the warranty of
habiubility. One provision states
that the tenant taku the premises
"as is". This is invalid as applied
to health and safety issucs.lt is
not invalid in regard to problems
that do not have an effect on
health and safety. The second
type of provision states that if any
property belonging to the tenant
is dameged due to a defect in the
apartment, the landlord is only
responsible if the defect was caused by the landlord's negligence.
This is also invalid because under
the warranty of habiubility, the
landlord is liable even in the
absence of negligence or
The warranty of habitability is
but one of many laws in New
York State providing protection
to tenants. Future articles will address additional aspects of
tenants' rights.
If a condition exists in your
apartment which you believe
creates a hazard to health and
safety you should first contact
your landlord and try to resolve
the problem informally. Keep
track of all conversations and correspondence with the landlord so
that you can prove, if necessary,
that the landlord knew about the
problem If the landlord does not
correct the defective condition is

One of the major problems that
as plagued Albany State's men's
occer team this year has been inonsistency; a good performance
s inevitably followed up by a
or performance.
Only one thing remains fairly
onstant — no matter what perormance the Danes give, they
till can't seem to win. Tuesday's
2 tie against Siena extended
Ibany's winless streak to five
nd put their record at 3-6-2.
Last year's team was primarily
defensive team, as the Danes
nly surrendered 14 goals the entire season. If the offense could
manage two or more goals a
game, you could count on the
team winning. Quite a far cry
from this year.
"If we let up three goals a
game, we're not going to win too
many," said Tihan Presbie.
"Last year we gave up 14 goals.
This year we gave up seven goals
in one game(Plattsburgh)."
Two key losses on defense this
year were Mike Miller and Tom
Merritt. Merritt, two-time AllSUNYAC goalie, has missed most
of the season with a bad back.
Miller, a cornerstone on defense
fei years, graduated last year.
"We miss Mike Miller a lot,"
said Presbie. "He would stop
everything back there. We didn't
realize how much we needed him
until he was gone."
Merritt has been replaced by
freshman Howard Tygar, who
after a quick start, has looked
shaky at times, according to Head
Coach Bill Schieffelin.
"Howard's playing like a
freshman," said Schieffelin.
"He's good sometimes, and
sometimes he's not. He gets into
trouble when he tries to think
about what he has to do instead
of just doing it."
Schieffelin took particular offense at Siena's first goal, which
tied the game at one. "There was
a long pass that I thought should
have been cut off by Howard,"
said Schieffelin. "He should have
come off the line to get the ball,
or at least come up to cut off the
angle of the shot."
But nothing irritated Schieffelin and his players more thatn
the officiating. Schieffelin used
words like "horrendous" and
"spastic" to describe the referees.
"The referees had no control
over the game," said Schieffelin.
"They let.some calls go and they
were calling others. If the referees
are inconsistent, the players don't
know, how they can play. The
head'eoach at Marist blackballed.
thisV'one, referee years ago; he's

Scott Cohen, Albany's best
player on Tuesday according to
Schieffelin, had some choicer
words for the referee. For his outburst, Cohen was awarded a
yellow card.
"I was frustrated with the way
the game was going," said
Cohen. "Siena Is not a team that
we should be tied with. But it was
mainly the refs — they were
awful. I was just cursing in
general, just that it was too
There was little doubt about
the yellow card, as Cohen deserved one. The second yellow card

overtime, Cohen was carded for a
flagrant foul. The contact made
was nothing more than what was
occuring throughout the game.
What made it more ridiculous was
that Cohen had the ball when the
foul was called.
"I had the ball and I was about
to pass it wherf their guy bumped
me," said Cohen. "The ref didn't

According to Schieffelin, the
officials blew a call that led to

the game. Mike Jasmin hit the

them," said Schieffelin. "With

Danes thrashed by Southern Connecticut, 39-0
October 16,1984
By Marc Berman
Even during last yean' dismal 3-7
season, the Albany State football team
were never so thoroughly dominated as
they were In last Saturday's 394) loss to
Division II Southern Connecticut played
on University Field.
In fact, last week's game marked the second worst beating the Danes have received in the club's 11 years or existence — the
worst one coming in 1979 against Ithaca
when the Danes were shellacked 46-6.
"We haven't been beaten like this in a
long time," said Coach Bob Ford in the
lockerroom after the game had come to a
merciful end.
With the Homecoming-game set for
tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. against the Cortland Red Dragons, the Danes find
themselves below the .500 mark for the
first time this season at 2-3, vying to erase
last Saturday's disaster from their collective memories.
"We can't look back," said freshman
quarterback Jeff Russell, who was sacked
16 times before being replaced late in the
third quarter. "Southern Connecticut is in
the past. We're now looking to beat
For the Great Danes to defeat the 3-2
Red Dragons, their impotent offense is going to have to be revived, especially the offensive line. Against the Division II Owls,
the Danes managed a pitiful 16 net yards
rushing and 41 yards passing. Russell was 3
out of 12 through the air but even worse,
he gained -22 yards trying to run the ball
out of the wishbone as the Owls' defense,
led by their 220 pound lineman Bob
Wilson, set up camp behind Albany's line
of scrimmage.
"Their defense was just bigger and
quicker than us," said Rusell. "There is no
excuse, they just dominated us."
Indeed they did. And Owls Coach Kevin
Gilbride indicated that his team might
have been spurred on by a high revenge
motive. In last season's contest, the Danes

"We've been waiting to play this game
for a long time," said Owls' coach
Gilbride. "I don't think they were
necessarily better than us last year; they
just came up with a couple of trick plays
that hurt us. No doubt, last year's game
was in the back of our minds all week."
Though the Danes' defense performed
far from sparkling (they allowed 346 yards
rushing), the excess of turnovers once
again helped their opponents' cause.This
week, Albany State committed four
blunders — three fumbles and one interception which was returned by
sophomore defensive back Rick Atkinson
58 yards for a touchdown. Their grand
total for turnovers now stands at 24 with
half of the season still remaining.
The Owls' first score came as a result of
an errant pitch by Russell late in the first
quarter. Scott Mersereau recovered the
loose ball at Albany's 34 and Ave plays
later senior quarterback Jim Sirignano

By halftime, the Owls had increased
their lead to 13-0 on a 50-yard drive that
was climaxed by an 18-yard run by
halfback Mike West which spotted the ball

Netmen lose to Vermont; favored in SUNYACs
By Krlstine Sauer
Number one singles, Dava Grossman returns a shot
to Paul Trlngell In last Tuesdey'e match.
Tuesday's 8-1 loss to the University of Vermont by the
Albany men's tennis team has not changed the team's
outlook for today's and tomorrow's SUNYACs Tournament in Rochester.
As team captain Jay Eisenberg said,"We're a good
team arid they're (U of Vermont) a good team. They won.
We were disappointed, but the loss is not going to change
our attitude going into the SUNYACS." The Danes have
won the tournament the last five years.
The format of SUNYACs is similar to the Great Dane
Classic. All the players play each other with every victor
getting a point for the team. At the end there are six individual player champions and three doubles champions.
The toughest competition will come from the University of Buffalo, who took second last year and Binghamton, who took third last year.
Coach Lewis considers the SUNYACs "a real tough
test for us, Buffalo has two very strong players at first
and second singles, but doesn't have the balance, whereas
Binghamton is a very balanced team. Their first two
players are not outstanding, but they have depth like us.
Personally I think Binghamton will be tough to beat.
We're not a shoe-in. We're the team to beat based on our
past record. We really dominated the last two years, but
not this year."
Albany has two defending champions: Jay Eisenberg,
who won at Fifth singles and Mark Sanders at sixth
singles. As for defending his championship, Eisenberg
said, "My chances are good. If I play well I can't ask for
more and hopefully that will be enough to win." •
Playing first and second singles for Buffalo are two excellent players. At number one is Paul Tringali, who lost
in the finals last year to Albany's Dave Ulrich. and at
number two is Mike White who beat Tom Schmitz in last
year's championship.
Dave Grossman, first singles player, said, "The
toughest competition for me will be Buffalo. He (Tringali) was in the Finals the last two years. Tringali will
probably be seeded one and I'll be two."
The Dane lineup might see some changes at fifth and
sixth singles where either Mitch Gerber, Mark Sanders or
Dave Zobler will compete. Gerber and Sanders haven't
been playing that well lately. Said Lewis, "Zobler is a
good match player. I've got a lot of confidence in him."
As for Albany's doubles teams Lewis said, "I have a
lot of confidence in them.The tournament may be won in
Grossman is looking forward to the tournament. "I'd
like to win it my third and Final year on the team. It'll
take a total team effort for us to win."
Teammate Gerber added, "We're favored going in.
We're the team to beat."
In Tuesday's match against the University of Vermont,
Albany's only victory in the 8-1 loss was by the second
doubles team of Eisenberg and Mike Dermansky. They
beat Vermont's Newman and Reum duo 8-5 in a pro set,
since the match was already clinched by Vermont.
"I expected a difficult match," said Lewis. "We battled them, although I was a little disappointed with the
score,. Vermont is an excellent team. I think the match
will serve as a good tuneup for the SUNYACs."
At first singles, Mike Duffy defeated Albany's Dave
Grossman 6-1, 3-6, 6-1. Duffy was first singles at Vermont last fall, siting out in the spring. Duffy always looks
forward to his matches with Grossman.
"Dave really served well," said Duffy. "He's really
tough. Last time we played, it was a close match. Dave's a

SUNYA has the highest percentage of voters in the USA
SUNYA groups may
have signed-up most
student voters in NY
By Ian Clements
With the possible exception of NYU, SUNYA
organizations have registered a higher number of voters
than any other campus has'*Hrrrcd up ini the entire state,
and probably a higher percentage than any school has in
the nation.
Final statistics on nationwide campus voter registration
have not yet been tabulated since Saturday is registration
deadline, student leaders said.
"By percentage of student population I think Albany
(State) has the highest voter registration total of any
school of its size in the country," said NYPlRG's
statewide voter registration coordinator Paul Herrick.
Hcrrick said that by sheer numbers, SUNYA probably
has the highest registration total of any school in the
state. He said he hasn't received statistics from one
school, New York University. But, Herrick said, "1 don't
think they've registered that many (students)."
Estimates of voter registration on the SUNYA campus
range from 5,000 to 6,000 students. Herrick said there
were about 6,000 registrants, while Student Association's
Student Action Committee chair Steve Gawley claimed
approximately 5,000 students Were registered by campus
There are approximately 15,900 graduate and
undergraduate students attending SUNYA this fall, according to assistant director for Institutional Research
Laurie Webstcr-Saft.
Neither Gawley, nor Herrick furnished statistics on
students registered to vote in their home communities, or
on students who did not register through campus
organizations, but who will vote in Albany on November
The Albany County Board of Elections does not maintain statistics on student registration totals, according to a
spokesperson for the Board, who asked not to be identified. The Board records breakdowns by ward, she said.
SUNY Buffalo has probably had the second most successful drive in the state, Hererick said, adding that about
4,500 students have been registered there.
The number of registered voters on the Albany campus
is "pretty high," according to United States Student
Asssociation (USSA) President Greg Moore. But, Moore
said, he did not know whether Albany's total was the
highest in the country, and if it was the highest, whether it
was in terms of absolute numbers or by percentage of
registered students.
"In terms of sheer numbers," one or two schools in
Texas and another in the Midwest may have had more
successful registration drives, said Herrick. One of the
schools, the University of Texas, has a student population
of 40,000, he noted.
"The grapevine has it that SUNYA has the largest,
most successful voter registration drive in terms of
students registered than any other campus in the nation,"
said NYPIRG project coordinator Efrem Kami.
