Sports Friday Danes' defense prepare to shoot down Cadets

Sports Friday
By Marc Berman
When Coach Bob Ford is talking about
the Danes' offense an1 his shaky quarterback situation, he ofte.i sounds frustrated
and a pained expression is etched on his
face. But when the subject turns to
defense, Coach Ford is all smiles and full
of compliments |
Coach Ford agrees that the defense has
been the teams steadying force and the
chief reason why the Danes are a respectable 3-3 going into tomorrow's game
against Norwich University in Vermont.
"I never thought the defense would play
as well as they have so far this season,"
said Ford, sitting behind his office desk on
Wednesday night. "Believe it or not, I
thought going into this season that our offense would be our strong point."
The entire Danes' coaching staff fully
expected veteran defensive tackle John
Redmond and linebacker Jim Valentino to
continue to create havoc for opposing offenses. But it is the performance of some
of his freshmen and sophomore defenders
that has Ford so enchanted.
"There has been so many pleasant surprises," said Ford. On the defensive line
Ford cited freshman tackle Chris Esposito,
who did a superb job filling in for the injured Redmond, who got hurt three weeks
ago in Springfield.
Though Redmond is back at full stregth,
Esposito will see a lot of action, especially
on passing downs. The freshman, who's
called "Espo" by everyone, has shown a
knack for the pass rush. Last week against
Cortland, he recorded three quarterback
"He's been a pleasant- surprise," said
Ford. "I didn't think he was going to be
ready for the varsity this year."
Neither did Espo. "I expected to be starting for the junior varsity," said the
freshman from Our Lady of Lourds in
Poughkeepsie. I guess I'm doing a good

The walls have come crumbling down. Coach Jim Serbalik's Albany State women's tennis program has fallen
on hard times. Once a young eager team of great depth,
they now have trouble fielding the minimum number of
players. Three crucial injuries only begin to tell the story
which includes players lost to academics, and religious
committments. Though valiantly trying to fight back
against the elements, the Danes have now dropped five
matches in a row.
The trouble began with St. Lawrence early in October.
Only able to field five of his players, Coach Serbalik
scrapped for a makeshift lineup that had his players playing as high as three levels over their normal capability.
Cerri Chiodo played an excellent game before falling to
Chris Lukelo in three sets (6-4, 7-6, 7-5). Ellen Yun fell
quietly to Chris O'Grady 6-0, 6-0 while Nancy Forbes and
Nina Cheung were stopped by Sally Rielle (6-1, 6-4) and
Shelly Sherman (6-3, 6-3), respectively. Jenny Bahroni,
forced into action, fell to Ashley Haffcraffen, 6-1,6-1 for
a stunning St. Lawrence singles sweep.
In doubles play, Sue Fairbanks and Val Kelleher beat a
worn out Chiodo-Yun team, 6-1, 6-3 while Pat Lawrence
and Mimi Kahle easily handled a duo of Farbes and
Cheung, 6-1, 6-2 to give St. Lawrence a 7-0 victory.
"A very good team," smiled Serbalik, "but we were
lucky we were allowed to play with only five players."
The Danes moved on to Potsdam and really held their
own before being edged out 4-3 in a super match.Chiodo
continued to surprise everyone with a stunning three-set
victory after losing the first set, 0-6. She battled back to a
0-6, 6-4, 6-1 impressive victory over Tricia Larsen. Consistent Yun fought hard before losing a three-set match
.(&2, 2-6, 7.-5) to Diane.Moses, „
"Her experience is paying off. She can't beat you, but
she can make you beat yourself," said Serbalik.
Forbes and Cheung continued to falter as both were
beaten. Ester Harris wiped out Forbes (6-3, 6-0) while
Colleen Kennedy took Cheung (6-1, 6-2). Bahroni matched her first singles victory, in a three set marathon, over
Vicki Denny by a score of 2-6, 6-2, 6-4.
The Dane doubles fared no better as Chiodo and
Forbes lost to Larsen and Moses, 6-4, 6-0, and the YunCheung duo fell to Harris and Denny, 6-4, 6-2.
Scrbalik's squad made another impressive showing at
RPI despite being edged, 5-4. The Dane attack was led by
number one singles Deb Lcffe as she handled Laura Cornstock, 6-2, 6-4. Lisa Valins played superbly and took Liz
Shea in three sets (4-6, 6-4, 6-4). In what her coach called
"the best match of her career," a resilient Nina Cheung
fought to a three-set win over Patti Williamson 6-3, 3-6,
6-1. The RPI singles attack was led by Karen Patkin who
beat the improving Chiodo, 6-3, 6-2. Beena Anu took
Yun, 6-2, 7-6 while Dcnise Van Wagoner edged Forbes,
6-3, 6-4.
The Dane doubles teams jumped out early as Leffe and
Chiodo romped over Comstock and Patkis, 6-2, 6-4.
However, RPl's Anu and Williamson edged Yun and
Cheung, 6-3, 5-7, 7-5 and frosh Heck Okomodro and
Karen Hallenbeck took Forbes and Valins, 6-4, 6-3 to
thrust a Dane victory.
"This was definitely our best match of the year and it
was all riding on one set. Unfortunately, they came up
with it," said Serbalik disappointingly,
Skldmore and Binghamton were next and no victories
were in sight against these two perennial powerhouses.
The "up and coming" Chiodo and "oP reliable" Yun
tallied iv/o big victories at Skidmore over Roxy Felton
(6-4, 6-3) and Sallie Livingston (2-6,6-4, 6-4), respectively

Miguel Barnet, a Cuban novelist and
I supporter of the Castro government, will
lecture and read from his work on
I Wednesday, October 24, in a visit to
SUNYA sponsored by the recently
established New York State Writers
! Institute.
Barnet's lecture, scheduled for 8 p.m. in
the .University's Performing Arts Center
Recital Hall, is titled ''Evolution of a People's Culture in Revolutionary Cuba." It is
free and open to the public. Earlier on
Wednesday, the Cuban author will conduct a writing seminar for students at the
The Barnet lecture is the first segment of
the Institute's "Cuban Dialogue," a series
of visits by noted Cuban writers of various
political stances.
"Barnet is living and working in
Havana, and supports the government,
but we'll be bringing other Cuban writers
later, some of whom are in exile and are in
opposition to the government. We'll have
the whole spectrum," said Tom Smith,
associate director of the Writer's Institute.
Plans for. the.other segments are being
finalized, Smith said.
Barnet has published five novels, three
volumes of poetry and a collection of
essays in Spanish. His most widely read
work, Autobiography of a Runaway is the
best selling novel in Cuba, since the Castro
Revolution, and has been translated into
12 languages including English. It
documents a century of Cuban life
through the eyes of a 100-year-old farmer
slave, and like his other fiction, draws on
the oral folklore tradition of Cuba.
Barnet is best-known for his "novelatestimonia," or the documentary novel,
work in Cuba. These novels have been called "first-person sociology," as they
chronicle patterns of human behavior and
cultural change based on interviews with
individuals who serve as models for fictional characters.
Barnet won The Casa de las Americanas
poetry prize for his collection, La Segrata
Familia (.The Holy Family).
In 1983, Barnet became thefirstCuban
since the Castro Revolution to win a Guggenheim Foundation Grant.
The Writer's Imstitute, which was endowed by the State Legislature this year,
was established by Pulitzer Prize-winning
novelist William Kennedy, an English professor at the University, to bring
distinguished writers from around the
world to d'scuss and share their work.
In September, the Institute hosted

Mondale still trails Reagan
Both candidates consider 2nd debate a success
(AP) President Ronald Reagan and
Democratic challenger Walter F. Mondale, attacking each other's judgement
and competence in a show-down debate
Sunday night, were heading into the
campaign's closing two weeks with
Mondale still playing catch-up and
Reagan's supporters confident his victory was secure. The second nationally
b r o a d c a s t 1984
presidential debate
was held in Kansas City and focused on
defense and foreign
policy issues.
Assessing his opponent's performance, Mondale said Monday, "In one sense, he didn't do as
poorly as he did last time. But, on the
central question of command,
knowledge, of taking responsibility, I
think he did worse."
However, Vice President George
Bush was jubilant, declaring after the
debate, "I think we just wrapped up
four more years."
Mondale stopped short of claiming
victory, but at a post-debate rally he
repeated the leadership theme he stressed during their 90-minute televised confrontation Sunday night on defense and
foreign policy.
"Tonight, despite all the tragedy in
Lebanon, I think I heard the president,
the commander-in-chief, blame it on
somebody else," Mondale told about
1,500 people in a downtown hotel.
"Tonight, despite all that embarrassment of that covert action in Nicaragua,
which has strengthened our enemies, I
think I heard the president, the
commander-in-chief, blame it on
somebody else," he added.
Mondale raised questions about
Reagan's leadership and knowledge of
complex issues. He was able to put the
incumbent on the defensive on
American lives lost in Lebanon, the CIA
assassination memo in Central America
and the lack of progress in arms control,
according to the Scripps-Howard news
Reagan was more in control of what
he wanted to say than two weeks ago,
when he fumbled and paused so frequently that it raised questions about
the 73-year-old president's mental agility, according to Scripps-Howard. When
asked if his age would interfere with his
functioning as president, Reagan
dismissed it saying, "I'm not going to
exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience."
On the issue of Central America,
Mondale spoke of a "three-pronged attack" consisting of military assistance
to allies in the area, a strong economic
and human rights program, and a strong
diplomatic effort to bring peace to the
region. Mondale attacked the president, saying, "I think the lesson in Central America, this recent embarrassment
in Nicaragua where we are giving instructions for hired assassins, hiring
criminals and the rest - all of this has
strengthened our opponent."
Reagan responded to a question
about the CIA's other terrorist tactics,
by saying the distribution of the manual
was under investigation.
Mondale stated that the mining of
Nicaraguan harbors violated international law and hurt the country. In his
rebuttal, Reagan responded instead to a
previous Mondale accusation that the
president said that "submarine missiles
are recallable," by saying, "How
anyone could think that any sane person
would believe you could call back a
nuclear missile I think is as ridiculous as
the, as the whole concept has been."
Most people think they can do the job
better than the boss.
However, while filling in for SUNYA
President Vincent O'Leary who's on >
study leave, Acting President Judith
Ramaley has found there isn't much she
really wants to change.
"There's nothing I would do differently," said Ramaley. "I might not have
predicted that from a vice-president's
perspective," added Ramaley, who's been
SUNYA's vice president of Academic Affairs since 1982. '
Ramaley began her term as acting
president on October 1, when O'Leary
started a leave of absence to study and lecture at the University of Belgrade,
O'Leary will resume his position on
January 15. But, Ramaley said, someday
"I would like to be president of an institution of this kind."
When Ramaley was named SUNYA's
Vice President of Academic Affairs in
1982, she became the highest ranking
woman administrator in the history of the
University. She is now, as acting president, the first woman to head the administration of a university center in the
State University of New York system.
There is a certain advantage, Ramaley
said, to being the first woman to preside at
the University. "Because it is unusual, a
bit of a media event, it gives me more opportunities to speak about the University
and it's programs," she explained.
She found, for example, at the SUNY
President's Meeting which she attended
last week in Cooperstown, that there are
only four women presidents besides
Ramaley in the entire 64 campus system;
two at Arts and Sciences colleges and two
at community colleges.
"We have a ways to go to achieve true
diversity of the students, staff and
especially administration at this University" Ramaley asserted. Although she noted
there has been a significant increase in the
number of women faculty that have been
hired during her two years here.
She said the administration is attempting to prepare staff members internally
for upper level positions. "It's hard to
walk into an upper level position without

Embassy reduces staff
(AP) The U.S. Embassy, facing new.kidnap and bombing threats, has reduced its
staff to about 27 by evacuating a dozen
more employees, reliable sources said.
In Israel, meanwhile, the Cabinet rejected a plan for starting negotiations on
an Israeli troop withdrawal from south
Lebanon, and officials announced the
600th fatality among Israeli soldiers in
Lebanon since the June 1982 invasion.

Regents calls for aid
Syracuse, NY
(AP) Expanded student aid programs and
more money for graduate education are
needed at colleges and universities in New
York state in the next four years, according to the state Board of Regents.
The board proposed a wide variety of
programs Monday in its four-year plan for
higher education, which will be submitted
to Gov. Mario Cuomo.
No cost estimate was made in the request for new programs.
Among projects regents said they would
like to see were:
-A program to give students financial
aid in exchange for public service work.
-Special efforts to recruit women and
minorities for programs in the sciences,
technology, and mathematics.
-Use of college students as tutors in high
schools with high dropout rates.
-More money to help pay for research
and teaching equipment.
Agency called 'bogus'

(AP) Former State Sen. Joseph Pisani

scheme in which a bogus child-abuse agency allegedly was established as a way of circumventing state gun laws.

the Westchester Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Children claimed that the

The petitioning child-abuse agency called upon the court to "put a stop to this

surveyed said they had driven a car after
having a "good bit to drink."
NATO opposes plan
New York
(AP) The secretary-general of NATO said
Monday he opposed the alliance promising
not to use nuclear weapons first because
the promise would make conventional war
more likely.
"A policy of no first use of nuclear
weapons seems attractive, no doubt, from
the moral point of view," said Lord Carrington of Britain, who took over as
secretary-general of the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization in June.
"And it also has the merit of protecting
us against nuclear blackmail by preserving
an effective deterrent in that respect. The
disadvantage, which to my mind is an
overwhelming one, is that it weakens the
equally important deterrant against conventional war."

departments faced stiffer competition for external dollars due
to decreases in federal aid.
In 1973, DiSanto said, the campus received eight to ten million
dollars in research funding. The
fact that this has doubled in len
years is partly the result of "the
university's efforts to bring to the
campus faculty members that are
not only excellent teachers but
who have excellent research
capabilities," DiSanto said.
"It's not just one or two new
large grants," DiSanto said, "but
continued research by quality
faculty members from many
disciplines that has sustained this
growth in external funding."
The Michael J. Hindclang
Criminal Justice Research Center
which is affiliated with the
University this year, acquired for
the first time, $471,000 in grants.
State agencies supplied 24 percent of the funds. "A part of the

A record $20,264,633 in grants
and external funding for research
was given to SUNYA last year,
accrding to coordinator of Sponsored Programs, Frank DiSanto.
Several departments each attracted over one million dollars in
outside funding, including the
b i o l o g y , c h e m i s t r y , and
psychology departments.
The Atmospheric Sciences
Research Center, the Center for
Women in Government, and the
Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy also garnered
over one million dollars. DiSanto
said this represented substantial
increases from 1983.
Much of the funding was supplied by state agencies, industry,
and private foundations. SUNYA
was the third highest recipient of
outside funding in the SUNY
system, behind only Stony Brook
and Buffalo, DiSanto said.
The rise in funding, a 21 percent increase over 1983, is impressive, he said, because most
grants are reserved for health and
engineering programs, which are
not available at SUNYA.
DiSanto also said that the increase demonslrates the "continuing strength" of SUNYA's
research departments, becauc the

According lo Bowman, the primary opthis year by the House of Representatives

Leader Howard Baker (R-TN), and
Senator Orrin Hatch, (R-UT).
Baker "washed his hands" of Ihe bill
and prevented it from reaching the Senate
floor until the end of the last session,
Bowman charged.
When it did reach Ihe floor, Ihe bill was
tagged on to an emergency appropriations
resolution that Ihe government needed to
continue operating. The civil rights bill
was withdrawn, afler much controversy, in

USSA chapters across Ihe country have
been carrying out letter writing campaigns
against Baker since early September, in an
effort to get him to bring the bill to a vote,
Bowman said.
Ross Abelow, also a newly elected
USSA delegate, explained lhal "USSA has
paid lobbyists in Washington, D.C. who
are in touch with all the Senators."
Abelow said the letter writing campaign
would be continued until Congress meets
again in January.

Demonstrating a split record on
common student concerns. State
Senator Howard Nolan, currently
running for re-election in Albany
County, said he voted for abilUast
year to kill SUNY tuition hikes,
but he will actively work towards
a 21-year-old drinking age.
In an interview last Thursday in
WCDB-91 FM's studio, Nolan
explained why he co-sponsored a
Senate bill to raise the legal drinking age from 19 to 21.
Calling the statistics "staggering," he said that if the problem
of drunk drivers is to be solved,
young people must lose the right
to drink. But Nolan also said he
sympathized with those who
would be affected adversely if the
drinking age went up. "Unfortunately a lot of people have to
pay for the sins of a few," he
Nolan said the issue was often
raised at home by his seven
children, aged 16 to 23. He said
he agreed with their arguments
that not all 19 and 20 year olds
abuse alcohol, but, he said, "Unfortunately in our society you
have to make laws for the better
of everybody and I know any law
you pass there are some groups
within society that maybe are unjustly affected by it."
In addition to sponsoring
pro-21 legislation, Nolan said that
he would work to repeal the mandatory seat belt law which New
York State Governor Cuomo
signed this summer. He also said
he expects that the 21 drinking
age will pass this year, especially
with the possibility the state will
be denied federal highway funds
if the drinking age stays at 19.
Nolan, a ten year veteran of the
Senate who graduated from
Albany Law School in 1957, said
he voted in favor of a bill that
stopped proposed SUNY tuition
increases last year, and that he
supported the TAP increases as
well. He called education the
most important government
"We have to do as much as
possible to increase student
assistance," he said, but admited
he did not know where the extra
funding could be found. "The

costs through revenue attained in

Frangella opposes the state's

"an infringement of the rights of

was not between seat belts and

By Ian Clements
The Republican state senatorial
candidate for Albany County,
Joseph C. Frangella, said in an interview Monday that he opposes
SUNY tuition increases, but failed to reveal what measures he
supports to avert such increases.
During the interview, which
was conducted in a haircutter's
shop on Central Ave.,Frangella,
who is trying to unseat the 10 year
Democratic incumbent, Howard

give specifics about, state aid for
higher education. " I ' m for casing
the burden on students and
students' parents so they can have
a college education," he said. He
also said he can "relate" to financial problems students and their
parents face because he sent his
children to college.
Frangella was emphatic in his
support for maintaining the 19
year old drinking age. "If you
raise the drinking age, you're going to d r i v e

said he wouldn't support a law

legislative mandate to move
SUNY's sports programs to Division I or to impose an administration rather than student controlled athletic fee. Last month the
SUNY Board of Trustees rejected
both proposals. Members of the
Student Association of the StateUniversity (SASU) had opposed
the proposals.
" I would respect the wishes of
the SUNY Board and the
students," said Frangella. "Why
should the Legislature or anybody
else force them to do something
they don't feel is in their best interest]" he asked.
He said he supports the Equal

Victims of writers block, or students panicking about
term papers can find the help they need in SUNYA's
Writing Center.
Rather than proofreading and correcting grammar, the
Writing Center, located in Humanities 140, tries to help
students by focusing on what they do when they write.
"Four things that we focus on when a student comes in
with a paper," said staff member Meg Seckcndorf, "is
the message, or what the student is trying to say; the purpose, or why are they writing this; the audience, or who is
the student writing to; and their persona, or who is the
student trying to be in the piece and how are they presenting themselves."
According to Seckcndorf "You learn a lot more this
way rather than by handing in a product and having someone correct it." Seckendorf said she has been helping
Students with their writing lor 3 years.
Not only docs the Writing Center help people with
papers or essays, bill also with applications lo law school,
medical school, and resumes, Seckcndorf said. The
Center has a high percentage of returning students, she
said, noting that some students come back at least three
times, at each slage of a paper. The Center also works
with a lot of graduate students, Seckcndorf said.
"We want to make better writers, not better writing,"
said Seckendorf. She said she would rather do lliis ihan
leach a course.
Assistant Director Gerry DiCarlosaid, "It's fun, tutors
just want to have fun. It's really interesting because we
deal with so many different people and they have different writing styles." Center Director Steve North said
he brings in his own papers to talk about with other
"We are a good humored bunch," reported DiCarlo.
The Writing Center itself has no funding, but the staff
is paid by the English department, according to North,
who said that the department has always supported the
Writing Center.
All those who advise in the Center work 11 hours a
week and "make Ihe equivalent of what a part-time person makes for teaching one course," according to
Due to the tightness of the University budget the
English department has not been able to provide completely sufficient funding to the Center, North said, adding that as a result, staff has been cut back.For the past
three years the staff lias consisted of both undergraduates
and graduate students, but because of the cutbacks the
English'department has not been able to rehire the
undergraduates back.
North said he is pretty sure that the Center will receive
the funding lo get the undergraduate assistants back in
future budgets.
The Writing Center, which is sponsored by the English
department, is a free service to the entire SUNYA com-
nunity. All grad. students on the staff are in Ihe doctoral
program in English with the exception of one graduate
student who is a doctoral candidate in Humanities. North
said he himself has taught just about everything in the
English department.
Last year, according to DiCarlo, the center handled
1400 tutorials. "It was the most successful year we've
had," he said,
This year, with the cutbacks, "we have been turning
away people because we can't handle" all the requests for
help, Seckendorf said.
Due to the lack of manpower the Wriling Center has
cut its hours from 10-5 to 10-4 on Monday through
Thursday and is now closed on Fridays, according lo
The center used lo operate on a drop-in basis, but,
because of the popularity of the service, appointments are
preferred. "If you want lo be safe, make an appointment," DiCarlo said.
SUNYA junior Matthew Burns said he brought a paper
he wrote for their input, "They made suggestions on how
lo improve my writing on that particular pupcr."
Burns received an A- on his paper and said he was
definitely happy with his grade, since the highest mark
given in the class was an A-,
"Even if they don't help you on your grade, they help
you with your writing and it's not only lor English
classes," said Burns.

Rising elderly crime perplexing courts, prisons
By Jackie Clark
, "Ten years ago we weren't
reading (in the media) about 63
year-old women rolling drunks;
we weren't reading about 78 yearold doctors selling drugs; (and)
we weren't reading about 83 yearold men murdering their wives,"
said one of three SUNYA researchers who have documented a
growing trend in criminal activities: Grandma the hood and
Grandpa the bruiser.

Professor Donald Newman.
Mr. Newman, who recently coauthored Elderly Crimes with
S U N Y A P r o f e s s o r Evelyn
Newman and Mindy Oerwitz,
said the book was written to call
attention to the unusual problem
of crimes committed by older
people, and to point out the need
for more research on the subject.
They point to two cases which
illustrate this problem:
Baltimore woman, 63, was charged with robbery, kidnapping and
assault with intent to murder in
January, 1983. Police said she
lured"elderlyand defenseless men

ed substances this October after
being accused of illegally selling
drugs to patients and supplying
several local drug addicts, according t o the State Health

" As far as we know," she said,
"he is still living where he was living. Now suppose a 27 year-old

wouldn't say 'we don't know

Mrs. Newman cited a second
case, that of an elderly woman
who was arrested for growing
marijuana. She was let free, said
Mrs. Newman, while her grandson, who was growing the drug
—Evelyn Newman with her, was sent to prison.
According to Mr. Newman, the
court and prison systems were not
designed for the elderly, so there
are few programs in place to deal
with the problem. For example,

Mr. Newman said that there is

SUNYA, then in SUNY/Central and then
the state itself. The GSEU, on the other
hand, knows its 4,500 members will have a
better chance at these goals when we
directly bargain with SUNY/Central and
the Office of Employee Relations.
What if an individual professor dislikes
unions? If a professor would propose
obstacles to any of us trying to better our
standard of living through our own
efforts-then we really need a union. If a
citizen in their 20s and 30s is inhibited
from making decisions effecting their
lives, then the GSEU will be a liberating
experience for that individual. Additionally the union can support any informal efforts to correct non-public grievances. Or,
it can take the lead in formal grievance
procedures to correct institutional injustices and bureaucratic mishaps.
Remember loo, that all our mentors and
educational supervisors receive benefits
from their own union. They are organized
for their own economic interests within
SUNY. "Assistants" on tlje other hand,
are the last unorganized professionals on
the SUNY campuses. Many professors
believe it is long overdue for "assistants"
to organize and assert their own influence
on SUNY policies. Unquestionably, they
see a likeminded but unique ally in campus
Far from undermining the scholar/mentor relationship, the GSEU can add to the
collegial atmosphere of the campus a n d .
probably ally our own union with that of
our mentors and educational supervisors.
As they protect their own interests, we can
protect our own interests through the
Graduate Student Employees Union.

The talented Constance ValisHill has pooled all of her artistic
resources, her abundant knowledge ol
dance, choreography and mime, to direct a
production that brings the vivid imagery of
Aeschylus' Eumenides to life.

I rinse my mouth. Red white water
means I brushed too hard.
I try to watch life in a second, but then
there's more, another street, bombed out
buildings, another street, a trash and
cinder lot, another street. I notice that
one building has its boarded up windows
painted over in sky blue, framed in
black. They looked like real windows.
The real ones bore gaping charcoal holes
.and shattered glass. I think I saw a tricycle falling off a curb and tumbling over
but I saw no child; the train continues.
I lift my face from, the window pane
and settle back into my seat. " M y
father," I whisper, I visited him yesterday. When I walked in the hospital room
I nearly passed him, barely recognized
him. He looked thirty, years older than
when I had seen him last. He was pale
and ill-shaven, his chin was doubled over
with loose skin, his eyes sagged down
and his nose puffed round. He seemed
to have shrunk. He stood wilted and rotund to my shoulders and patted me on
the cheek like my grandfather used to
do. A n d I hugged him tightly as he stood
in his slippers, sweater, and big short
pants, and he hugged me back. 'I love
you, Dad,' I whispered into his ear, and I
whispered it softly again on the train,
A streak pounds past my window, a
southbound train, and is gone.
I look up to the woman sitting opposite me. I watch as she turns to me and

Donna Jossman's mask design, for they truly were graphic, greusome characterizations of the Furies' raw emotidns. Furthermore, Linda Salsbury's costume design,
described by Valis-Hill as "velvets in reds
and purples over-dyed in black," effectively depicted the primitiveness the Furies
represented (the archaic, chaotic order of
justice, they embodied) and the majesty of
Apollo and Athena, in particular.

U.S. H e met my mother in the slums of
lower Manhattan. They got married and
had me and my brother. But ten years
later my mother couldn't take it
anymore, so she took us and left him
alone in that apartment. M y mother
wasn't like him. While raising us she
went to school and got a job. W e made
it on our own.' First we lived in a one
bedroom roach infested apartment, then
my mother bought a house, then a car,
and then she started us both in school.
M y father stayed the same, though. He
worked in the city and came home to his
rooms, fell asleep in front of the T.V.,
and went to work the. next day. W e used
to visit him every Friday, but then I went
away and my brother did too. He never
really had company after that. He had a
heart condition; he started to complain fo
stress form his job. He took sick leave for
a month. They didn't fire him, he quit.
He couldn't leave his house without
breaking out in a cold sweat and his
' heart was failing him. He loaded up on
heart pills and became a hermit.
Another train whirls past. It startles
me, but she catches my hand.
"I called him up on his birthday. He
told me everything, frantically. He was
desparate. He heard noises from the people downstairs. They followed his
footsteps and banged on the floor. They
banged at 11 -.00 at night to tell him to go
to bed. Then they banged when he was
asleep to wake him up. They flushed the
toilet when he passed the bathroom.
They rang the phone then stopped. He
heard them laugh from below. He
lumbered around this hollow apartment
•imagining sounds, he never slept. When
he collected the sail in the lobby each
day he saw people turn away, make
faces. He saw the shadows of their feet
behind each other along the long echoing
hallway. He shut himself in his room,

And we were both in tears when he
wished he was a belter father. Then he
tried to kill himself."

The most fascinating highlight of the
evening was the opening " O Mother

formed a light circle and subsequently
broke into a snake (indeed, Ihe masterful
director identified the "angry animal"
Iheme as a dominant motif in the production), this tightly choreographed piece
evoked an image so intensely eerie and
bestial Ihat il could leave a stark, lasting impression in the mind of Ihe playgoer. So,

Additionally, A u d i Lyons' slage lighting
permeated Ihe action and enhanced the
production's prevailing mood, whether it
was gloom or the jubilant .ldulalion thai

Outside of the chorus. Leslie M a y and
John Fox proved to be the production's
strongest stage presences. M a y was stern
and forceful as Athena, the play's personification of evenhanded justice. Once
she entered, Ihe produclion gained a certain aura of hope and fairness Ihat the
Furies, heretofore, supressed.
John Fox was equally magnetic as Orestes,
the protagonist acquitted of matricide (Actually, the verdict rendered was one of
"justifiable homicide"). His taut expressions
of fear and confusion aroused the audience's empathy towards him and intensified their disgust of the Furies, w h o put
Ihis poor man into his anguished slate. Unfortunately, Rory Healy's portrayal of

I was absolutely appalled at the remark regarding
biology majors made by Marc Roscdwald, co-chair or the
Delta Sigma Pi Fraternity Career Day planning committee. He said companies and organizations that are potential employers of biology majors would not be present at
Career Day because "all bio majors are pre-med
I think that Mr. Rosenwald may be making the false
assupmtion that every other major in this University is as
concerned with making money as are business majors.
Everyone knows medical doctors can make hundreds of
thousands of dollars a year, although I'd like to think
that is not their prime motivation for the job.
No, Mr. Rosenwald, all biology majors are not premed; in fact, not most, not half, not even one-third of
them are. There are approximately 200-250 biology majors graduated from SUNYA every year. Fewer than 60
of the students who will graduate this May have applied
to medical school (and I apply that term loosely-it includes podiatry, medicine, dentistry and osteopathy)
this past year. It should also be noted that you need not
be a biology major to apply to medical school. But let us
just assume that 225 people will graduate with a major in
biology this year. And let us assume that 55 of them are
pre-med. That gives us less than one-quarter of all
biology majors-a far cry from "all" biology majors,
even if it was a figure of speech.
That leaves us with 170 students. Obviously, not all of
these students will go on to get jobs In their field. Some
have just used college as a four year crutch; other will be
getting M:S.'I and Ph.D.'a. But certainly a fair number
of these 170 students will be looking for jobs in thier
field. Thanks to the closed-mindedness of Mr. Rosenwald, and others like him who immediately assume
"M.D." when one says "bio major," many students will
be denied access to information that will affect them for
the rest of their lives.

Persecuted group
To the Editor:
False accusations, name calling, emotional tirades.' If
interested simply get invloved in the ROTC issue here at
the University.
It all began a few weeks ago when Central Council
voted to deny ROTC tabling rights in the Campus Center
and the ASP ripped apart ROTC with a nastily worded
editorial. However, in the ensuing time period, the entire
issue has fallen prey to very low level in communication.
Suzy Auletta, S.A. Vice President would seem to be on
a crusade to ais in gay and lesbian rights. While she may
have this in mind, she has also shown that she is willing
to go to any length to rid this campus of ROTC, forgetting the Constitution of the United States and well mannered argument in the process. At the Central Council
meeting of October 3rd, in which ROTC appealed the
banning resolution, I was impressed by the Quality and
well mannered arguments put forth by those who were in
favor of denying ROTC tabling rights. Unfortunately,
when it came time for Miss Auletta to speak, the tone
quickly became insultive, and the argument irrational and
emotional. When informed that gay and lesbian students
could take ROTC classed, she shouted, "If you were
black, would you go to a Klu Klux Klan meeting just
because they slopped burning the cross!"
I resented being referred to in a such a manner, as did
my fellow ROTC students. We are not taught to hate gay
and lesbians, nor do we appreciate the inference in an
open forum that we are taught to be bigots by our
Moreover, she also stated that "ROTC doesn't need
the Campus Center, they can use the bulletin boards or
mailers for solicitations." I suppose that in 1965 blacks
really didn't need the front of the bus, since there was
plenty of room in the back.
The story continues. Two weeks ago a bill to eliminate
ROTC from campus was sent lo a University Senate Subcomittce from S.A. Funny thing was it never passed
through cither of the S.A. Senate liasons and nobody
seems to know why.
Then there is the ASP . Not satisfied with the editorial
of September 25, the cdilor primed another on October
19, slating ROTC contained many "evils". Abuses, evils,
ignorant blind nationalists; the lisl of degrading words
about ROTC continues to spew forth from the pen of the
editor. To tjie editor I issue a challenge. Either put your
cards on the table and tell the University community what
the abuses and evils of ROTC are in specific detail, or
stop whining about these mythical "evils".
To close, ROTC students are like any others. We arc
human beings trying to lasl another day at the University.
We will nol sit quietly while student officials sacrifice our
constitional rights (as evidenced by last weeks Supreme
Court hearing) In the name of "student activism" and we
are tired of being derided and insulted. Finally, ROTC
does not need support from students who engage in calling the gay and lesbian alliance "useless" or any other
name. Any group who feel their constitional rights have
been violated should fight back, and be able to do so in an
environment free of bigotry and namecalling.

Lack of interest
To the Editor:
As Biology students we are distressed at the apparent
lack of interest on the part of the faculty and staff as
evidenced by the total lack of participation by the Biology
Department in CU Day October 13. It is quite disheartening that many of the professors in the Biology Department are so wrapped up in their own particular endeavors
that they are unwilling to work toward presenting to the
community a demonstration of the academic
achievements occurlng within their department.
It has come to our attention that the faculty and funding of the Biology Department has shown a steady erosion over the years. Perhaps this trend could be reversed,
if the Biology Department staff were more enthusiastic
about the University as a whole.
It is quite disappointing and embarrassing to several of
us whose parents visited during Parents' Weekend in that
we were not able to show them a demonstration of our
achievements or studies in Biology, when demonstrations
in other uccas of concentration were taking place in other
departments. '•

Ramaley served at assistant
vice president for Academic Affairs at the University of
Nebraska for two years before she
came to -Albany. Before moving
up to the vice president's position
in Nebraska, she taught endocrinology and reproductive
biology there.
Sorrell Chesin, assistant vice
president for University Affairs,
commented on the University
Council's unanimous nomination
of Ramaley as acting president.
"It is a custom that the vice president for academic affairs," which
he said is considered the senior
vice president on most campuses,
"acts as president at anytime in
the president's absence."
In the case of Ramaley's temporary appointment Chesin explained, "Although she is new to
this campus, she is not new to
higher education,"
She earned a doctoral degree in
anatomy at UCLA and received
her bachelors degre with honors
from Swarthmore College, where
she majored in zoology.
Ramaley said she is familiar
with the recent controversy in
Central Council over the appointment of two minority students.
She said that after the controversy settled down, she saw
students make "a sincere and
honest attempt to look at what
happened and understand it."
"I was impressed with the way
people expressed o p i n i o n s ,
respected each other and were
listened to by the others," she
Student Association President
Rich Shaffer said Ramaley seems
to equal O'Leary'i receptivity to
students and hit expertise in administration. "You would think
she might be inexperienced, being
here only two years, but she really
knows what she is doing," Schaffer asserted. -

••Front Page
Mondale argued during the
debate that he remains committed
to a strong defense and a military
budget "which would increase
our nation's strength by - in real
terms - by double that of the
Soviet Union."
But he acknowledged that he
has opposed the B-l long-range
bomber, saying, "for 15 years the
Soviet Union has been preparing
to meet the B-l. The secretary of
defense himself said it would be a
suicide mission if it were built."
Reagan said, "It's always been
easy to argue for reductions in
defense spending, just as it's easy
to pretend that one can call the
Soviets leaders, as myopponent
has proposed, and persuade them
in a minute to alter the course
they have followed for decades."
On the issue of nuclear arms,
Mondale said he supported a
mutual and verifiable nuclear
freeze, "because this ever-rising
arms race madness makes both
nations less secure, it is putting a
hair trigger on the nuclear war.
This Administration, by going into the Star Wars system, is going

We Can Help
President Reagan attacked this
by saying it is "far more
humanitarian to say that now we
can defend against a nuclear war
by destroying missiles instead of
slaughtering millions of people."
He also said he is willing to
share this technology with the
Soviet Union so they can sit down
and discuss how to get rid of all
nuclear weapons. The President
also accused the Carter Administration of unilaterally disarming which Mondale did not
refute, but instead said there
would be no unilateral disarmament during his administration.
On the issue of Lebanon,
Reagan said the peacekeepers
withdrew because they were not
able to complete the mission they
were sent to do.
But Mondale charged that the
administration had reports prior
to the attack on the Marine barracks that claimed 241 U.S. lives.
In the closing statements, Mondale stressed domestic issues from
the previous debate, th esyrength
of the United States, and the
possibility of nuclear war. "It's
time for America to find new
leadership," he declared.
Reagan, in his closing statement, said, 'M think the American
people tonight have much to be
grateful for: an economic
recovery that has become expansion, freedom, and most of all,
we are at peace.

Booters' winless run hits eight after Vassar loss
By Dean Chang
Last weekend's performance against
highly-regarded Oneonta State would lead
you to believe that Albarty State's men's
soccer team was ready to break out of its
seven-game winless streak against Vassar
on Tuesday. Unfortunately for the Danes,
logic seldom prevails for a losing team.
Against Binghamton and Oneonta,
Albany finally gave back-to-back solid efforts. Despite losing both games, the
Danes showed that they were a team lo be
reckoned with. Practices this week have
been crisp and efficient, and the players
were thinking that they could beat Vassar,
Ihe lOth-ranked team in the state in Division III. Given these facts, guess who lost
to Vassar, 2-1?
"I thought we had it licked," said
Albany Head Coach Bill SchielTelin. "We
played well in practice but wc reverted lo
playing down to their level. This week has
been indicative of the season we've been
having. We're not very productive against
weaker teams."
The question is why; why isn't Albany
beating teams Ihey should be beating? It's
certainly not because of a lack of talent,
nor is it a lack of desire. These players
want to win more than anything. So what
is it?
"I don't know what goes on in those
kids' heads," said Schieffelin. "They cerlainly didn't go in with the same attitude
they had against Oneonta. They have to
play with more motivation and intensity to
Yet the Danes played well enough to
beat Vassar, dominating at both ends of
the field. What Albany lacks is a killer in-

stinct, according to Schieffelin.
Dominating is one thing, but putting the
ball into the net is another. Posts were hit,
balls were overrun, and saves were made.
If bad breaks are supposed to even out,
then Albany is due for an outpouring of
lucky breaks for their last three games.
"I thought we played well," said Scott
Cohen. "1 don't think that attitude is (he
problem with us. Me, Carl (loos), and
other guys were psyched for this game. We
had our chances, but we weren't gelling
Cohen has not been having a good relationship with referees these days. Against
Siena, where the officiating was, in Schieffelin's words, "horrendous", Cohen
received two yellow cards and was
suspended for (he Binghamton game.
In the Vassar game six yellow cards were
handed out by the officials, four of them
going to Albany. Team captain Jeff
Hacked got one for complaining lo the
referee; Warren Manners and mildtempered Jerry Isaacs got one-each too.

card wasn't deserved, and I was lucky I
wasn't red-carded. There were times when
I took the ball.away cleanly but the guys
would go down. Those are usually called
for yellow cards. The referees should have
given ihe whole team a yellow card just to
save time. They were pretty awful."
Schieffelin had stronger words for (he
officiating. "That had to be the worst officiating I've ever seen. We didn't play
panicularly well, but the officiating certainly set Ihe climate for the game."
Michael Jasmin got the Danes their only
goal 42:42 into Ihe first half on a freak
play. Jasmin kicked the ball toward the
goal, expccling Vassar goalkeeper Scott
O'Brien to make an easy save. O'Brien
nonchalantly bent down to pick up the
rolling ball, only to have the ball sneak
between his legs.
Vassar lied Ihe game at one as Alex
Ooms scored at 3:34 into the second
period. Ooms added the winning goal less
than 12 minutes later.
"This was a game lhat we could have
and should have won," said Schieffelin.
"We've been letting games gel away from
us. It's very disappointing when you lose
lo a team you should beat."
Coming up on Saturday is a game
against RPI. The Engineers have beaten
teams lhat Albany has lost to, and have
been winning their last few games.
"I consider RPI to be at a similar level
lo Vassar," said Schieffelin. "With a little
more motivation, I would expect it to be a
much belter game."

It i l l a long time coming. This past
Saturday, the Albany State men's crosscountry team dramatically unseated the
Fredonia State dynasty from the SUNYAC
throne as the Danes put all live scoring
runners in the topfifteenplaces to win the
SUNY cross-country title and bring the
Blue Devils six-year domination of the
conference to a very abrupt end.
Albany placed six runners in front of
Fredonia's fifth man to outscore the Blue
Devils 47 to S3, while Cortland actually
had the tightest pack of runners, all five
between 13th and 22nd, which earned
them third place overall. SUNY-Buffalo,
bolstered by the transfer of four solid harriers, came out of nowhere to edge
Oeneseo for fourth place, 140 to 146.
Dane Jim Erwin led the race for most of
the first mile setting a fast pace. Ed McGill
then took the lead near the two-mile mark
while the Danes had swarmed to the front
of the pack. Said Munsey, "That had to
shake them (Fredonia) up some. I told our
guys that I wanted them to go out very
hard and by the mile mark it was Albany,
Fredonia, and some scattered individuals.
None of our first six faded back. They
stayedrightwhere they went out. Fredonia
had to run with us more than we had to
run with them."
By the third mile McCill had slipped to
third as meet-winner Jeff Byrk of Buffalo
State opened up a big lead. Meanwhile the
back end of the Dane pack slowly picked
off Fredonia's runners and opened up a
five-point lead.
McCiU led the Danes to thefinishline by
finishing third overall (26:17) right between Fredonia* s first man Michael
Gaughran (26:12), and their second. Art
McArthur (26:21). Albany's number two
man, junior Ian Clements, finished
seventh in 26:33, well ahead of Fredonia's
third man, Kevin Ramsey (26:42).
Erwin ran the second, third, and fourth
miles "harder than I ever have, in my life"
to finish tenth overall in 26:31. Danes
Callaci (27:02) and Parlato (27:09) finished twelfth andfifteenth,both of them weU
ahead of Fredonia's fourth man, Thomas
Hanson. "That was the difference right
there," McGill said afterwards, "our pack
beat their pack, and their's wasn't much of
a pack either." Sophomore Tim Hoff
finished 20th in 27:23 by outkicking Rick
Purcio, Fredonia's number five man,
thereby adding a displacement point to the
final score.
After all of the runners had come
through the chute, the Danes stood in a
cluster quietly while the scores were being
tabulated. Fredonia's runners sat together,
exhausted and dimly aware that the impossible had happened. Then Albany
Head Coach R. Keith Munsey gave a shout
and skipped over to his team and the
Danes began jumping on top of each other
and shouting in celebration. "We wanted
this very, very badly," explained senior
captain Chris Callaci.
The exuberance of the celebration matched the team's nervousness the night
before. "We have nothing against
Fredonia personally," junior Craig
Parlato explained,"but when one team
dominates for so long , people get sick of
them." "We got a lot of support from
other teams and coaches," Coach Munsey
said, "so I told my boys, 'Hey, the eyes of
the SUNY Conference are on you'." Captain Jim Erwin recalled, "Yeah, that was
great. We were totally nervous after that."
Sophomore Tim Hoff said, "We heard
that Doc Phillips, the Fredonia coach, had
told somebody, 'I don't think Albany can
run with us.' and I said 'Okay, buddy,
we'll see you there'."
Assessing the meet in retrospect and his
team's future Munsey began: "It was a
real dogfight, a horse race. Was Fredonia
tougher than last year? Yes, they were ,
but we're even more improved. We're so
improved that a lot of people have and will
underestimate what we can do, but that's
okay. We're not going to let this make us
overconfident, though, Fredonia will be
very tough at Regional! and those NCAA
plane tickets to Nationals could go to a
couple of different teams. We've got our
work cut out for us." The Dane harriers
have now stretched their winning streak to
ten straight wins, the longest In recent
memory. Their SUNYAC win is Albany's
first since 1977.
The team is now looking forward to the
18th annual Albany Invitational where
they will run against rivals University of
Rochester and Division I Siena on the
Danes' home course this Saturday.
Albany Harriers Craig Parlato, Chris Callaci and Jim Erwin hung together to help the
Danes win the SUNYAC championships.
Norwich's second half rally stuns Danes, 27-17
By Marc Berman
Northfield, VT
For more than 29 minutes of the
30-minute half, the Albany State defense
silenced the Norwich's high-powered "offense along with their 73 millimeter
howitzer, which is traditionally shot off
after every Cadets touchdown.
But then, the Dane's greatest adversary
this season, the turnover, started to play a
role in Saturday's game, which Albany
State eventually lost 28-17.
In all, there were four Albany miscues,
each one playing a part in Norwich's stirring comeback, which saw them wipe out a
17-0 Great Dane advantage.
And during this Norwich comeback, the
ancient cannon exploded four consecutive
times; once late in the first half and three
times in the second half, while Albany
State failed to retaliate with any firepower
•of their own.
"We feel crushed right now," said a
somber Dave Soldini, who had a spectacular 209 yard rushing effort Including a
91-yard touchdown gallop in the first
period. "It's a tough loss to take."
"The team let down a bit," added
linebacker Jim Valentino, who sat
slumped In the front of his locker in the
depressing Dane's dressing room. "We
should've come after them in the second
half and killed them right there."
If it weren't for the turnovers, Coach
Bob Ford felt his Danes just might have
done that: "Take away those turnovers,"
said Ford shaking his head, "we might've
blown them out."
"It wasn't the amount of turnovers,"
commented offensive line coach Ed
Zaloom. "It's just that we turned the ball
over in such key situations."
Albany's initial turnover helped indirectly towards the Cadets crucial first
touchdown, which came late in the first
half. Theirfinalthree blunders came in the
second half—two leading to Cadet scores
while the third killed an Albany scoring
The Danes' afternoon started off almost
as elegant as the scenery surrounding Northfield, Vermont's Sabine Field. Autumncolored mountain ranges framed the football field and the persistent sun only added
to it's beauty.
Beautiful was the only way to describe
the Danes' second offensive play of the
game. Soldlni bolted right on the veer and
was able to outsprint the Norwich secondary for a 91-yard touchdown run.
Dave Lincoln booted a 43-yard field
goal on the next possession, which was aided by two 10-yard gains by Soldini, who
compiled 134 yards by halftime.
The lead increased to 17-0 when the
Danes put together a flawless 10-play,

Buffalo students pull $4M from Marine Midland
By Lisa Strain
Allegedly giving loans to companies that deal with South Africa
— a country known for its racist
policies — is going to cost Marine
Midland a four million dollar
The account belongs to the Student Association at SUNY Buffalo. They're making the move in
support of efforts to get SUNY
statewide to divest all its holdings
in companies that operate in
South Africa.
According to Anthony Lord,
Marine Midland's Senior Vice
President and General Manager
of Europe, Mideast, and South
Africa, the bank "has made no

any investments in South

Africa, Lord said, "We are a
business entity, not a political
entity. If a bank were to determine their accounts on the basis
of their clients' investments it
would go out of business."

of over fifty regional and commercial banks in the United States

As of last July 539 companies
and binks had invested a total of

According to SUNY Buffalo
Student Association President
Jane McAlevey, in the next two
weeks the $4 million dollars of
SUNY Buffalo student govern-
ment funds will be transferred
from Marine Midland to Gold
Dome, a bank on the"deanslist,"
a list of companies proven to have
no holdings or investments in
South Africa.
"It's just a matter of vote at
our upcoming meeting; we have
the majority," McAlevey said.
"We've been researching this
since July. The reason it took us
so long was we wanted to get proof — actual investment sheets in
our hands — so we can prove
without a doubt" that Gold
Dome has no investments in
South Africa.
SUNYA's Student Association
has its funds in Key Bank, which,
according to SA President Rich
Schaffer is on the "clean list."
SUNYA's SA Third World
Caucus Co-chair Dwayne Sampson explained, "Efforts here are
in putting a series of resolutions
through Central Council, in
general awareness in how Marine
Midland is directly related to
South Africa, and how students
can seek alternatives."
"We're looking at other banks
and investment firms that have
divested. There's a firm in
Philadelphia that's divested and
we're trying to get firms like that
closer to New York so we can
counsel with them," Sampson
asserted. "We're waiting for a
comprehensive plan from SASU
(Student Association of the State
University) — a more technical,
action plan," he said.
"We're interested in making
this one of our top priorities this
year," Schaffer added.
Marine Midland's exact role in
dealing with South African companies is not completely clear, explained Jordan. "We have not
been able to trace exactly what
role they have, but we suspect
they might be lending money to
companies dealing with South
Africa," he said.
ASAPFA has two lists of
banks, Jordan said, those that are
"clean" and have no dealings
with South Africa and (hose that
aren't. "Marine Midland is
neither — they are suspect
because they have no policy either
for or against South Africa."
According to a statement issued
by SASU, as of March 1983, the
State University of New York Endowment Fund had investments
in companies active ii South
Africa totalling at least SI7.3
million. Much of this was in the
form of government bonds. Of
the $64.1 million invested in the
private economy, 27 percent is in

Dane harriers regain SUNYAC title
By Tom Kacandes
This is the first of two articles on the state of academic
advisement at SUNYA.
"Advisement! What's advisement?" senior Eric Dorf
demanded, at the mention of the word. On the eve of prercgistraion for next semester, many students may be searching for the answer to that question...or for their
"The difficulty on this campus," according to Robert Gibson, acting director of
the Center for Undergraduate Education
(CUE), "is that the students and staff do
not have a commonly agreed upon defini- Feature
tion of what academic advisement is."
As a result of what Gibson called "mismatched expectations," there is a gap in the advisement process.
Debi Grccnwald, now a junior in the School of
Business, explained how the gap affected her. "At first I
expected them to take care of everything," she said, explaining that her expectations have been modified since
then. And now, upon looking back, she said, "If I would
have asked for more; I would have received more."
One sophomore said, "I expect information to be offered to me." Describing her unhappiness with her CUE
advisor, she said, "I had to pull everything out of her."
Gibson said "the advisors depend on the students to
raise specific questions."
First year student Gail Crawford praised the advisement process. "My advisor gave me suggestions on
courses and professors. She also made suggestions about
career and long-term goals."
Crawford summed up the session saying, "She
answered the questions I wouldn't have known to ask."
The CUE publication Major Decisions, given to frosh
at orientation, lists a number of qualities and skills a CUE
Vandalism threatening safety in dorms
By Rick Swanson
Vandalism in student dorms is increasing at
SUNYA, leaving administrators upset, lounges trashed, and one student escaping injury by only a few feet
when a bottle crashed through the skylight of a lounge
on Colonial Quad.
"I have little tolerance for this activity," said Assistant Vice President for Facilities Dennis Stevens, of the
increased vandalism on all five quads. Students, he
maintained, "have adopted a laissez-faire attitude
about the damage."
Much of the vandalism, said Stevens, has been
directed at five safety devices, including heat sensors
fire alarms and especially fire extinguishers.
The administration, Stevens said, went ro a lot of
trouble to make the dorms safe. "It is difficult," he
said, "to understand why the people who were suppos-
ed to be protected did so much damage" to the safety
"We went to great lengths to ensure safety in the
rooms" of the dorms, said Stevens, explaining that the
physical plant workers had just completed installing
fire extinguishers on all the quads.
Assistant Director of Physical Plant Karl Scharl
said, "We went beyond what was required by safety
regulations — to ensure safety" in the dormitories.
"Our main concern is the students' safety," asserted
Scharl, who said he is apalled at the apathy of students
who could otherwise help prevent the vandalism by
reporting it.
"They should report it," said Scharl of the students
who witness the violence. "After all, its their lives that
are in danger," he asserted.
In addition to vandalism to fire safety equipment,
advisor should have.
These include being specifically trained to help put
together a first semester schedule, an ability to explain requirements and the publication says, "You should expect
that your advisor will treat you as an individual, not as a
number or stereotype."
CUE did fulfill these expectations, according to some
frosh interviewed. Carol Candiano said her advisor''
"seemed genuinely concerned" with her as a "person."
Jeff Hubbard, also a freshman, but with a declared
major in chemistry, said he expected an advisor to "ex-
"...students and staff do not
have a commonly agreed on
definition of what academic
advisement is."
plain courses and how they would help toward my major
and toward career goals." His advisor, he said, "did
know about a lot of options."
Major Decisions also promises, "Your advisor will certainly be able to explain any questions you have concerning majors."
However, Andrea Snydner claims, "I was given inaccurate information. 1 was told the Social Welfare School
needed applicants and was easy to get into. When it came
time to apply, it turned out to be harder than the business
school to get into." She said she would have planned differently, if her advisor had given her the correct
When students declare their majors, usually at the end
of their sophomore year, they are assigned a faculty advisor in the department of their major.
