Wayne Anderson had a 93-yard klckofl return for a touchdown as
the Danes beat Springfield, 33-15.
The Springfield Chiefs bled purple Saturday.
In fact, by the time the Great Danes finished their
33-15 drubbing of the highly regarded Division II
team, the Chiefs had bled so much purple that It's
doubtful the field will be green again by the time
Norwich comes to town two weeks from now.
"I thought in preseason we would be decent,"
Albany Head Coach Bob Ford said, "but I wasn't
sure how good. I think we have a solid team."
The Danes certainly seemed solid against Springfield, tallying 33 points on the touted Chief
defense led by Bill Delaney. "They run the option
as well as any team I've played against," said Springfield head coach Mike DeLong. "Mike Milano is
an outstanding athlete, and of course they're wellcoached."
"We have to get a little better," DeLong added.
The Chiefs are now 0-3.
Milano, the Danes' starting quarterback and
holder of the University's passing yardage record,
broke his nose in the game, but Ford said he was
likely to start against Southern Connecticut. "It's
the kind of injury you can play with," Ford said.
"He thinks he'll be ready and I think he'll be ready,
but there is no question he'll be playing with pain.
Mike is a fierce competitor, but we'll have to wait
and see."
Both teams were scoreless in the first quarter, but
Springfield drove downfield to Albany's 14 before
settling for a field goal.early in the second.. The'
Chiefs were driving hard on the. nine-yard line when
Dane linebacker Frank Sarcone knocked running
back Stacey Eason back to the 14, forcing Springfield to settle for the field goal. The goal line
' stand was the first of several for the Dane defense,
which denied Springfield any more points until
midway through the fourth quarter.
The Danes retaliated on the next drive, a sevenplay march that ended when-Milano reached split
end John Donnelly with a 26-yard pass for the first
touchdown of the game. Milano threw a high arching pass under pressure to Donnelly, who took it
in for the score.
Two plays later, Rich Kozak intercepted a pass
from Springfield's Brian Timbrouck to start
another drive, which endedin an over-the-shoulder
pass from Milano to Melvin in the end zone. At the
end of the half, Albany led 16-3.
The second half didn't begin any better for the
Chiefs, as Wayne Anderson took the opening
kickoff 93 yards for the touchdown. Anderson,
who was recruited by DeLong, said he always gets
optimistic when facing Springfield.
"I'm really close with Coach DeLong," Anderson said. "He wanted me to play for Springfield

"The play was supposed to go left, but there was
nothing there," Anderson explained. "So I turned

The combination of mental mistakes
and an anemic attack finally caught up
with the Albany State women's soccer
team as their record plunged to 3-6 after
consecutive 4-0 losses to t.cMoyne and St.
Lawrence.
"Both the games could have gone either
way," said Dane coach Amy Kidder," but
psychologically we've really been beating
ourselves."
Any psychological edge the Danes might
have enjoyed against LeMoyne last Tuesday, quickly vanished when Dane midfielder Cheryl Hcnsen's goal of an indirect
kick tied the score at l-l, but was disallowed because the ball was not touched by
another player before entering the net.
"One of my players was right there and
said the keeper touched it, but they took it
away," argued Kidder, but the ruling held,
and Albany appeared visibly deflated.

"They're very organized as a team add

the St. Lawrence squad that shell-shocked
Albany 2.6-7 in shots, "but there ain't no

Only Lazarides, forward Joan
McNamara, and co-captain Kim Kosalek
managed to test the St. Lawrence keeper
with shots on goal, as the Dane attack continued its nosedive.
"We just ran with their players instead
of beating them to the ball," explained
Kidder. "We put ourselves out of the

After a string of frustrating games in
which the Albany men's soccer team
had dominated the field, but never the
scoreboard, things came together this
weekend with a 1-1 tie with Potsdam
Saturday and a 1-0 win over Siena
yesterday, improving the teams' record
to 3-4-2.
"We'd outplayed teams before, but
we hadn't been able to win," said cocaptain Carl loos. "It was very
frustrating, we're very happy about the
win."
".We dominated the game, it was a
good win,", said co-captain Tihan
Presbie of the Siena game. "Wc played
more high pressured against them, as
opposed to the way we played against
Union. Wc didn't sit back and wart for
them to come to us."
The game was scoreless for the first
half, with both teams scoring one off
sides goal apiece, goals that were
disallowed by the officials.
"Ours shouldn't have been called,'
said loos. "When a shot on the goal is
taken, you can't be called offsides. It
was a poor judgement call."
Another official ruling which cost the
Danes a goal occured in the second half.
"Eric Cifuentes was taken down, and
Tihan picked the ball up," said loos.
"That's legal under the advantage rule,
but the referee called a foul. If he'd let
Tihan keep the ball, he would have
scored. As speaking captain on the field,
I asked the rcf about the call, and he admitted to it being poor judgement."
Presbie did have a hand in the games'
only goal, which was scored by
sophomore Kenny lane 78:24 into the
game. Presbie picked up the assist. The
Danes made 16 shots on the Siena goal,
against 11 for their opponent. Dane
goalie Jeff Goldstein made six saves,
versus five for Siena's Ken Hewter.

Over 200 studenU attended Thursday's public hearing.
"RA's sliould not have to play police officers.'
The proposed Graduate Students Employees Union
(GSEU) came one step closer to reality this week when
the State Public Employees Relations Board ruled
enough SUNY graduate students had shown interest in
the idea.
According to PERB Director, Harvey Milowe, hearings will now be held to determine whether graduate
students are employees and can legally unionize.
"There has been for many months an inquiry as to
whether or not the matter should progress to the hearing stage." said Milowe, adding that "in front of us are
the substantive issues."
"The last two years we've been working on a show
of interest," said Bruce Henderson, GSEU State

Secretary.
When the interest period ended, PERB began throwing out response cards from people who the board did
not consider students. "We had more than 40 percent
but the state tried to throw out as many cards as possible. We were left with just enough to pass," said
Henderson, noting the one-third required signatures.

RA's as police, hidden drinking seen

Students want as liberal an alcohol policy as possible,
and don't want to see Resident Assistants(RA's) become

Thursday night.:
•Over 20©students packed thelndian Quad skin room
to listen and sometimes applaud; the testimony; of both
students and administrators.'
Members of the "Implementation of 21 Committee"
were present to hear students' views, and according to
Committee chair Jim Doellefeld, the goal of the meeting
was "to provide opportunities for students to express
their opinions and to provide feedback about how they
feel about the purchasing age of alcohol going up."
Many issues were discussed including the RA role once
the '21' law goes into effect. According to Dave Jenkins,
Associate Director of Residential Life and Director of the
Middle Earth counseling center, RA's will be caught In a
double bind between being part of the administration and
enforcing the law, and being fellow students.
"Must the RA stop the drinking of students under age
21 by enforcing the law, or will the RA look away and let
students violate the law?" asked Jenkins, adding "What
will be the role of the RA and what kinds of messages will
he or she give students, whichever way they act?"
Peter Katz, an RA on Alumni Quad, agreed, with
Jenkins and. stressed, that "RAs should not have to play

If Indian Quad seems noisier and
State quieter this year, it's probably
because Residential Life decided to
integrate first year students onto all
five quads, starting this sememster.
Eliminating the "freshman quad"
was a decision made by athe
Residential Life staff, according to
Director John Martone, "We conducted a two month research period
in which we looked into the benefits
and negative aspects of having a
freshman quad," he said.
Martone explained the idea of
eliminating the froth quad had not
been a priority until 1984 because the
proportions of first year stories on
one quad were never so high, "In
1984, State Quad was 7.2 percent
freshman," lie said. In past years,
Colonial Quad and State Quad had

Students-votlhg In SA elections
Low voter turnout was
"disappointing.'
By Jim Thompson
Low voter turnout marked this week's Student
Association (SA) elections for Central. Council, as
students went to the polls to vote for seats not filled
in last Spring's balloting.
There were nine seats on the ballot, including
four off-campus representatives, and one for each
of the five quads.
The winners for the off-campus positions were
Mike Miller, Michael Berman, Rob Pipia, and Andrew Kampel..
The elected students for the quads were: Alumni,
Melissa Bower; State, David Miller; Indian, Terry
Corallo; Colonial, Gino Visco; and Dutch, Mike
Berman.
Off Campus voters tallied 370 votes to lead the
Student turnout, while on campus voting was headed by Colonial, which turned In 237 ballots.
The remaining quads closed at Dutch with 136,
State with 121, Alumni with 70, and Indian with 66
votes cast at each polling place.
Some of the winners commented on the lack of
student involvement. David Miller said, "I was very
disappointed with the student turnout. The
students' participation is greatly needed." As if to
illustrate the point, the State Quad seat was determined by only two votes.
Elections for the Class Council of 1989 were invalidated after one day of voting because one name
was mistakenly left off the ballot and another was
badly misspelled, according to Steve Russo, Central
Council Internal Affairs Committee Chair.
When asked by Jackie Bernstein why the second
day of voting had to be cancelled, Russo replied,
"You can not invalidate half of an election."
A motion of a friendly amendment to the bill
rescheduling the election, stating that the Contact
Office will provide candidates of the Class Council
25 free posters if they bought posters originally
passed Central Council Wednesday night, i5-4-0.
Opposition was to the cost of supplying 25
posters to at most 35 candidates. SA President
Steve Gawley, said, "They didn't screw up, we
did." It was Gawley's idea to offer 25 free posters
to each candidate because, he said, "It
was out fault."
Another friendly amendment was introduced by
Phil Botwinik and Jackie Bernstein stating the elections be reheld on two days instead of one. Russo
said that the reason for not having another day is to
save money. "One day is $125 to pay the election
commissioner's minimum wage," he said.
Jackie Bernstein stressed the need to show frosh
"We care." The amendment failed on a 10-10 vote
with three abstentions.
The 1989 Council Election will be reheld on
Thursday, October 17.
"I'm on cloud nine, "exclaimed Terry Corallo,
who won a Council seat from Indian Quad. She is
already a University Senator and Vice-President of
the Class of 1987. "I wanted to be a part of student
representation, and now my vote counts."
Rob Pipia, who is also President of University
Action for the Disabled (UAD) said that,"This is
the first time I ran for the Central Council." Pipia
hopes to promote rights for the disabled and also
work on the "grouper law." Pipia will represent
off-campus students in Council.
"I was running against two sophomores, I didn't
expect to win." said David Miller who is a first year
student. "I like to know what's going on, that is
why I ran for Central Council," he said.
Michael Berman, who unsuccessfully ran for SA
Vice-President last April said, "I want to improve
the communications between students and the SA. I
want to-get to know the people I represent."

Crimebuster patrols form for student ghetto
By Rene Bablch
iNieghborhood Watch, part of the Off
Campus Association (OCA) held its first
meeting Tuesday night and took the first
steps to develop a community crimewatch
that will cover a four-block square in the
"student ghetto."
The area to be patrolled is between
Quail Street and Partridge Street, and between State Street and Madison Avenue.
The meeting, led by officer Jerry Frank
of the Albany Police Department's Crime
Prevention Unit, was initiated by SUNYA
student Victor Bushell and OCA chair
John Harrison.
Bushell, who originated the idea of a
crime watch, said, "I have -initiated this
for two reasons. One because I have it in
my neighborhood at home, and two, the
program works well enough that crime
comes out of your area."
Neighborhood Watch is designed to
make residents more aware of their susceptibility to crime, and to teach them how to
prevent crimes from occurring in their
area. " T h e people who form
Nieghborhood Watches are the most important ingredient, not the police department," said Frank.
Since the police.department does not

neighborhoods with a regular beat officer,.
Frank emphasized the necessity of citizens
taking all measures possible to protect
themselves.
According to Frank, it is essential that
the group have neighborhood residents as
well as students as members. Residents
provide a good sense of stability in a community where the turnover rate of students
moving in an out is so high, he said.
To begin the program, Harrison said
that OCA will distribute stickers with the
phone numbers of the fire department,
police, and rape crisis hotline to Pine Hills
residents.
OCA will further its support by providing a hotline where people can call with
complaints or to report crimes in their

The hotline will be staffed by the 15
directors of OCA's Board. Their job will
be to investigate complaints and talk to offending parties.
The responsibilities of the captains
elected to the neighborhood watch are to
alert neighbors as crime patterns develop
in their neighborhood.
Members of the community- are responsible for reprting crimes to the police and
to keep each other aware of what is going
on.
Bushell emphasized that a way to ensure
the success of the program is for people to
get to know their neighbors. This way
there can be a sense of unity, and lines of
communication will be open.
"Everybody wants to live in a community, everybody wants to wave to the person
across the street, and that in itself deters
crime — people...caring about each
other," said Bushell.
Although the police department cannot
patrol areas at all times, Frank said that he
and his partner, officer John Hill, "will
give 100 percent support," to the group.
According to Frank, the police department can make statistics of crimes, places,
and types of crime prevalent to particular
neighborhoods available. "The priority of
a neighborhood watch is to educate the
people," he said.
The Albany Police Depatment's Crime
Prevention Unit sponsors a free survey of
the homes of residents. They make an
anlaysis of the security of homes and also
will install pin-stoppers in windows and
engrave certain valuables with an identification number that will go in a nationwide file that serves to identify a person's
belongings.

but to use them, he said. "The majority of
apartments don't have outer locks and inner doors are left open. Also, the majority
of entries are made thrugh unlocked windows," he added.
"Burglars are juvenile, amateur
burglars. The secret to their success is an
open door or window; they're looking for
opportunity, Three characteristics of
criminals are desire, ability, and opportunity. We can't change the first two, but
we can change the opportunity," said
Frank.
For apartment dwellers, Frank said, it is

The Neighborhood Watch community

SUNYA frats resurrecting despite U.S. trend
By Ian Clements
STAFF WRITER
While relations between university officials and fraternities and sororities on
some campuses have soured, the resurrection of "greek" life at SUNYA has happened quickly and proven popular with
students.
"I think the response of the University
has been a very positive and supportive
one," said Vice President for Student Affairs Frank Pogue.
"The University is very supportive and
pleased to see the growth of sororities and
fraternities," echoed Director of Student
Activities Jessica Casey.
While greek-administrastion relations
within SUNY have been platonic, such is
not the case at other schools. Even more
striking, however, is the rapid growth of
greek organizations on the SUNYA campus. While there were only a handful of
such organizations here just a year ago,
there are at least 15 fraternities and 7
sororities recognized by the University, according to Casey.
Why did greek life emerge so suddenly
and quickly at SUNYA?
"Nobody knows why," said Casey,
"supposedly students are more traditional
and conservative."
Andrea Hanan President of Psi Gamma
disagreed asserting, "We're not conservative, each one of u; »s very different."
"We have some guys who are jocks,"
said Michael Liebowitz president of Phi
Lambda Phi, "and some guys who
smoke."
"Students' values are changing," said
William Murabito, SUNY Central's Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs,
"I think students are shown nationally to
be more conservative."
"Students...need something to identify
with" and it is often difficult to identify
with a campus, he stated, "it's easy to
identify with a fraternity, sorority or a
FREE
club."
"People in frats are insecure, they need
frats to carry them through the everyday
problems of life," claimed Tim Cochise, a
junior, who does not belong to a
fraternity.
Greek leaders tended to agree with the
positive assessments of greekadministration relations made by Pogue
and Casey.
"My fraternity hasn't had any distinct
problems that I could point out with the
administration," said Liebowitz, although
he did say that the administration
sometimes blames an entire fraternity for
the misdeeds of one of its members.
Hanan said, "They (university officials)
. weren't really prepared for" greek growth,
but other than a "big communication problem" that has caused some groups to miss
intra-fraternity meetings, Hanan had no
other complaints.
Casey admitted to having trouble in sending out notices about meetings to the
groups but said she hoped to solve that
problem by depending more on telephone
calls than on on-campus mail.
There has been a "significant increase in
interest" in fraternities and sororities on
other SUNY campuses, according to
Murabito.
Though "some (administrations) are
leery because of problems before,"
Murabito said, they "are quite willing to
work with" sororities and fraternities.
All SUNYA-recognized fraternities and
sororities must sign non-discrimination
and non-hazing statements, Casey said.
Casey objected to the use of the term
"little sisters" for the female auxiliaries of
some fraternities. "I wish they would refer
to them as 'women,' " she said, "I'm not
seeing as many references to 'women' as I
would like."
According to Howie' Sonnenschein,
president of Zeta Beta Tau, the members
of ZBT "develop close relations with the
R I D E
girls" who are their little sisters "just like
you would if you had a sister at home."
An issue of particular concern to some
fraternities and sororities is housing.
Prevented from forming off-campus
"frat-houses" by the City of Albany's
grouper law which- prevents more than
three unrelated persons from living in the
same rental unit, some view on-campus
housing as their only alternative'.
"We need a house," said Sonnenschein,
"as house builds unity and unity builds
brotherhood."
Because many fraternities and sororities'
formed late last semester, they were unable
to apply for -"special interest housing" but
this year, according to . Director of
Residential Life John Martone, "we will
be sending out information at the end of
the (fall) semester on fraternity-sorority
housing."
.I .
. Martone said the University has not yet
decided how students will be housed in the
dorms which are to be constructed across
Fuller Road, nor was he certain if fraternities or sororities could construct their
own houses on University property.
Will fraternities and sororities continue
to grow?
"It's tough to tell," said Casey, "some
people say we might be at our limit."
"SUNY-Albany is on a lot of (fraternities' and sororities') hit-lists...because of
our size and prestige many national greek
organizations want to establish chapters
here," claimed Casey.
G
Greeks face national attack
Watervitle, Maine
COLLEGE PRESS SERVICE — Last year,
the commission appointed by trustees of
Colby College in Maine to review problems with the school's 11 fraternities
and sororities adopted a recommendation no one had anticipated: withdraw
recognition for all greek organizations.
And this fall, the college has opened
for the first time without greeks on
campus.
"We had tried creating new standards
for them two years earlier," said administrator Earl Smith. "They had an
impact in some cases, but they didn't
have much of an impact overall."
Amherst College in Massachusetts
soon followed Colby's lead. But even
schools that didn't go as far are spending this fall giving greek organizations
unprecedented nationwide scrutiny.
There is nothing new about
disciplinary sanctions against individual
greek chapters, but even national greek
/
leaders acknowledge the heat is on as
never before.
Already this fall, officials at Florida,
Duke, Lehigh, and Dartmouth have investigated and filed charges against
some of their fraternities. In addition,
Loyola-New Orleans administrators say
they will soon bring criminal charges
against two former frat members.
"We're under attack," said Mark
Mullinix of Alpha Tau Omega's national organization.
"There is an increasing public outcry
fueled by dramatic stories of misconduct, much of it relating to the way
women are treated by fraternities,"Mullinix said.
Apart from the ongoing disciplinary
measures on many different campuses,
some unusual punishments are being
imposed:
— Amherst and Colby's booting of their
greek organizations marks the first time
housing sign-ups took place. "We
explained "to the quads that we
were going, to hold out a certain
number of spaces on each quad
for freshmen," Martone said. He
added that this idea went over
quite well.
"We tried not to pick the most

and Chambers. They also play in
Saratoga and in Lake George, he
said.
Aside from doing three to four
gigs a week, Rettig is involved in
programming for commercial
jingles, songwriting and recording. An album, which he cut
with guitarist Kevin McNeal, called Greene Blues features their
original works and will be releas-
ed within the month. He has
made several television ap.pearances on shows like The
Mad, Mad World of Art. In addition, his videotape from the
Delmar Library will be featured
on television some time this
month.
Rettig spends a great deal of
time a t r e c o r d i n g s t u d i o s ,
especially his own, Cotton Hill
Recording. " I use the studio
primarily as a scratch pad for
myself, although I occasionally
art demos for other people, "explained Rettig. He recently cut six
children's songs for a client with a
synthesizer.
Adirondack Studios is another
major focal point of Rettig's life.
He works there with three other
musicians; the owner of the
Studio, Ace Parkhurst, a recording engineer; Chuck D'Alia, a
guitarist; and Peter Borras, a
d r u m m e r from t h e band
"Downtime." The group has
recently s u b m i t t e d two of
P a r k h u r s t ' s songs to Tree
Publishing and they may be used
for a Nashville music special. The
group may be called ' P A R C for
each of their initials, but nothing
definite has been decide. " W e
thought of calling it ' C R A P ' but I
don't think it would go over as
well," joked Rettig. "We're hoping to get our foot in the door and
be able to submit more material,"
he said.
Rettig has also worked with
various singers and dancers as an
accompianist. Jody Shane, the
Theresa Broadwell Quartet and
various dance troups from New
York are among a few of the
groups he has played for.
When asked about life as a
musician, Rettig said, "Don't get
involved if you're only doing it on
a monetary basis. The competition is stiff, the hours are long
and the environment is lousy."
Rettig pointed out that gigs can
become monotonous when they
have to be done for a living,
especially since inflation has
bypassed musicians." I get an
average of $30 a night, that's.
$4.00 an hour. I was making that
kind of money five years ago,''exclaimed Rettig. This also explains
why he had to paint houses to
suppliment his income in the past.
Being a musician also puts
massive restraints on his social
life, said Rettig. " M y wife and I
work at our realtionship, in fact
sometimes we book time together,'
otherwise I'd never get to see
her,"said Rettig. "There are
times when I work six shows per
weekend." he added.
Rettig said he is working on
music as a craft and trade instead
of as an idea or art form. This
said Rettig, is the key to being
successful. " W e c a n p l a y
anything well, we even play a
mean polka," he said, adding
that an instrument is merely an
extension of one's self. You have
to understand it technically and
mentally." he said.
Rettig's goals are to be successful, m a k e m o n e y , g a i n
recognition and feel good.
" I ' m tall arid weird looking. I
could put a streak in my hair and
beads in my beard and fit right in
on MTV, but that's not what it's;
all about. I like to play music
that's sincere with good players,",

At Wednes iy's Central Council meeting, a bill
was approved with no objections that $1400 be appropriated from the Emegency Spending Line for
the purpose of purchasing a new safe for the SA.
According to SA Controller Eric Schwartzman
SA needs a new immovable safe because it "holds
very important documents'— past audits of SA,
agreements signed with I M S , and all cash from the
Contact Office every d a y . " He added that this safe
would be controlled by the office manager.

Returns on $20 investment fail to-j
O
flC
satisfy members of Dog Pound oS
By Ken Dornbaum
EDITORIAL ASSISTANT
According to several members
of the Great Dane Dog Pound,
the Student Association (SA)
funded weightlifting club, things
are not running as smoothly as
they could.
"They've been making empty
promises as 'far as. equipment
goes," said one member, Ed, who
wished not to be further identified. "Since last January (1985)
when I first became a member,
they stated they would get more
equipment," he said.
The Dog Poound is an SAfunded group which owns and
- controls the freeweights located in
the weight room of the University
Gym, according to SA Controller
Eric Schwartzman. "Membership
is $20 per semester and the club
has 168 members," he said.
The supervisor of the Dog
Pound, said Schwartzman, is
Chuck Priori. In addition to the
thirty to forty hours Priori puts in
there, Priori is also an assistant
football coach.
"One of his duties," said
Schwartzman, "is to put together
a supervisory schedule." Priori is
paid pro-rata on how many
students join the group.
"The group has a $2,000 income line and is about $1,400
over that this semester," said
Schwartzman, adding that these
funds will be used to buy new
equipment and to pay Priori.
That equipment has not yet
been purchased. " W e are in dire
need of this equipment," said Ed.
"The incline bench is unstable
and the lightest dumbbell down
there presently is 40 pounds,
which is very heavy."
Another Dog Pound member,
who wished to be identified only
as Nick, said, " I heard since June
that he (Priori) would immediately get new weight plates. I've
spent $35 since the summer," he
added, " a n d have yet to see any
of the promised improvements."
" I ' m mad about the empty
promises and also a little about
the lack of hours," Nick continued, adding that the new hours
are Monday through Friday 9
a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday 12 noon
through 2 p.m. and closed on
Sundays.
According to Schwartzman,
the smaller weights can be stolen
very easily and the hours were implemented for security reasons.
" I could sign up at a health
club,' said Nick. " Y o u pay more
but you get quality. I cannot do
many exercises with the dumbbells because they're too heavy,"
he said.
Priori was .reached Thursday
nignt at work but refused to
comment.
"Things will be picking up
soon," said Mark Rivers, chair of
the Inter-Collegiate Athlete Commislon (ICAC). " W e got a purchase order for $1,100 for new
equipment such as curling bars,
squat bars arid dumbbells," he
added.
\;
"After completion of the Bubble," Rivers said, "the Dog
Pound is moving from the Weight
Room to Auxilllary Gym " D . "
The bubble is a new sports arena
to be built near the University
Gym to provide more space for
athletics.
" S A is not in the business of
running weight r o o m s , " said
Rivers. " W e are going to evaluate
the club and I think the Physical
Education Department and the
Athletics Department should
perhaps take the place of the club
or develop a freeweight program," he said, adding that the
university has great ei resources
and supervisory capabilities.
He added that "If it's a matter of
the Athletics Department taking
control of the freeweight room,
or of SA insuring that ihe Dog
Pound has better administration,
then that's SA's and the Athletic
Department's duty."
" I ' m going to get together with
Chuck (Priori), and the membership," said Rivers, " t o get
students more involved in the
leadership." Currently, efforts
are underway to elect officers for
the group, he said.
"The duty of SA and of the
Athletics D e p a r t m e n t , " said
Rives, "is to provide students
with the best possible service."

Open doors
The fate of next year's dorm parties, quad
parties and late-night games of quarters in
your suite rooms, is being reviewed right now.
Want to know what's being considered? Go
to campus center 358 on Thursday at 4 p.m.,
put a glass against the door and listen. It's the
only way you can be sure of finding out what
the Implementation of 21 Task Force is up to.
You can't attend this Task Force meeting
and you can't read about it in the ASP
because we can't attend it either. The Task
Force members have voted to close the
meetings, blatantly violating student rights
and very possibly New York state law.
Some Task Force members say that closing
the meeting allows them to be more candid.
They contend that by meeting in private,
they'll create a more relaxed environment for
discussion. What they're really saying is that
without the public there, they're free to say
anything they want, they're free from public
scrutiny of their ideas. This may be the most
productive way to hold a meeting, but it's not
the most productive way to create a working
policy.
A good policy reflects the needs and concerns of the people it governs. More than 200
of these people showed up on Indian Quad
yesterday to participate in a special hearing
organized by the Implementation of 21 Task
Force. This clearly demonstrates that students
do have a lot to say about the implemntation
of 21, and do want to be involved in the
policy-making process, every step of the way.
Perhaps, in light of yesterday's impressive
turnout, the Task Force would reconsider.
Students are obviously very interested in helping formulate the new policy.
In addition, the meeting should be open for
legal reasons. According to Robert Freeman,
Executive Director of the New York State
Committee on Open Government, task force
meetings of this kind are governed by the
State's Open Meetings Law, which mandates
that meetings of 'public bodies' must be open
to the public/
Two years ago, Freeman detailed all this info, in a written advisory opinion we requested
after being shut out of two task force
meetings.
We're hoping it won't come to that again.
Presented with evidence that students really
want to participate, and documentation that
closing the meeting is in all probability illegal,
we urge the task force to reconsider its closed
door policy.
Get it right
How complicated could it be to run an SA
election?
If SA's track record is any indication, it
must be near impossible.
Every election, it seems, is marred by some
kind of miscommunication, breach of policy,
disqualification, accusation of unfair campaign tactics, or, in the case of our most recent
election, simple carelessness.
For some reason, Guy Sansone, our elections commissioner, couldn't see to it that all
the candidates' names were spelled correctly
and listed on all the appropriate ballots. As a
result, the Class of '89 council election has to
be run all over again, costing SA a lot of
money and creating an unfair inconvenience
to the candidates.
Exactly what caused this goof is unknown
to us at this time, as Sansone has been conveniently unreachable since the election.
Whatever the problem was, it merely reflects a
bigger problem: SA lacks the procedures for
running a smooth election.
This deserves some consideration; running
an election couldn't really be that
complicated.
this xerox copy of Jerry Falwell is so self-righteous to
criticize the religious beliefs of other groups, and even
other Christians, his education has been wasted on a rigid
mind.

SCENE I
(The Kremlin. Curtain rises on an elegantly appointed
apartment in the classic European style. All the trappings
of material success are evident: a large stereo, liquor, a
wall of rare books, a wall of banned books, thick rugs,
fireplace, etc. An iron maiden stands in the corner. A pile
of unpacked luggage sits by the door, barely obscuring an
exercise bicycle. Mr. and Mrs. Gorbachev sit askew on
the couch, just returned from a vacation in Paris. A maid
exits STAGE LEFT.)
Mr. Gorbachev.(cxcitedly) What a trip! I'm telling you,
darling, things are getting better and better. I knocked

and say "I am a Texan." They'll go crazy, (checks his
hair in the mirror) What a victory, and on their own soil!
Do they have electricity out there?
Mrs. Gorbachev: Mike, shouldn't you be concentrating a
little more on the summit with Mr. Reagan? No doubt
they'll be expecting lots of (pauses) concrete proposals.

Maid: Pizza's here.
(Exuent, ad libbing)
SCENE II
(The White House. Curtain rises on the spacious living
quarters of the Rcagans. They are eating popcorn and
watching "The A-Team." Mr. Reagan is sitting on about
eight pillows.)
Mr. Reagan: (confused) I don't understand it, Nancy.
Some plump, balding apparatchik comes to power over
there and simply because he can walk unaided from point
A to point B without wheezing and sneezing, and suddenly I'm yesterday's lunch.
Mrs. Reagan: (consolingly) Don't be so hard on yourself.
You're still the best. Mr. Gorbachev's just trying harder
than usual. Besides, under those bright lights in Geneva
next month, he'll probably melt. (Shegets upandgoesio

Mr. Reagan: You think so? Well, America isn't number
' one in the Nielsen ratings to let this character steal our
show.
Mrs. Reagan: (emphatically) How do you think I feel?
His wife cuts a real dashing figure in those expensive
clothes. Suddenly the guy has a real person for a wife.
What am I to do? You ought to trick them into ordering
new china for the Kremlin, dear. I need a break.
Mr. Reagan: (dejected) I need some fresh writers and
directors . . .
Mrs. Reagan: fdejecfcoVShe'lI probably start doing
charity . . .
(Curtain.)
SCENE III
(Geneva. Curtain rises on a murkily lit room filled with a
long negotiating table. Mr. Reagan and his aides sit on
one side. Mr. Gorbachev and his aides sit on the other. A
cloud of smoke hovers over the table. The mood is tense.
The dialogue moves quickly and forcefully.)
Mr. Reagan: How do you expect us to conduct a foreign
policy if you keep flitting around like a sweetheart?—
Mr. Gorbachev: You must limit your long range smile

UPD complaint
Closed mind
Officer Sabo insisted on giving Frank a field sobriety
test and a breathalyzer. Frank was appalled because he,
myself, and the two other passengers in his car were totally sober. Officer Sabo told Frank he was swerving and
had failed to stop: Frank refused to take the field test. At
this point, Officer Sabo told Frank he was under arrest
and proceeded to remove his handcuffs from his belt.
Myself and two friends looked on in disbelief and
wondered how far this would go. Throughout the discussion, Officer Sabo held his flashlight in Frank's eyes
(when asked by Frank to remove it he replied by saying he
could hold it wherever he pleased) and insisted they were
glassy. The fact that Frank was wearing his newly pescribed contacts can account-for his eyes appearing glassy.

As a student residing on this campus, seeing this event
concerns me. After speaking with Frank for a few •
minutes, Officer Sabo should have had a more than accurate idea if he was inibriated or not. Officer Sabo implied he was going to cite Frank for wreckless driving and
failure to stop. After his 20 minute theatrical performance; which Included dangling handcuffs, he wrote a
single ticket and bade us farewell. I can only ask to whom
do we turn when we fear those who are supposedly protecting us?

students who major in areas other than accounting. In
fact there are numerous services which are being provided
daily and which hundreds of seniors, graduate students
and alumni use. These services include workshops on the
job search, resume writing and interviewing. In addition,
we provide individual counseling on each of these matters
as well as short term counseling for those who are
undecided about career directions. We maintain and staff
a career library and we facilitate campus recruitment of
, all students regardless of their majors.
The recruitment on campus of accounting majors is
one of many services which the Career Development

will be seeking employment after graduation to come to

Why we divested
To The Editor:
In the October 1 issue of the ASP, Lawrence A. Staub
wrote a letter entitled "Why Divest?" This was in
response to the SUNY Board of Trustees' vote in favor of
divestment. The letter, which stated that the students who
took part in the September 23 divestment rally "don't
even know what they are supporting," is not only an insult to Albany students, but also to those students who
traveled from around the state to be here for that event.
Mr. Staub seems to think that we are not aware of the fact
that,SUNY has no direct investments in South Africa.
Well, not only do we know this, but we also know that
having an investment in a company that does business in a
racist regime is no less a crime than directly doing
business in one. The fact remains that U.S. investments in
South Africa are concentrated in the most crucial sectors
of its economy — oil and energy, automobiles, and computers. By strengthening its economy, these investments
greatly increase the ability of the Apartheid regime to
hold onto its power. If U.S. investments were not so
crucial to the survival of the regime it would not now be a
crime in South Africa, punishable by a minimum of five
years in jail and a maximum death sentence, to support
divestment.
Mr. Staub also stated that if divestment caused companies to stop dealing with the Apartheid government it
would "only hurt the blacks of South Africa since these
facilities are shining examples of desegragation." Mr.
Staub is obviously referring to the renown Sullivan Principles, drafted in 1976, that call for non-segregation of
fair employment practices. What Mr. Staub apparently
doesn't know is that two years later the average monthly
wage for a black miner was still $175 compared to a
white's $1,056.1 wonder if he knows that four years later
210 out of 350 U.S. companies still hadn't agreed to even
try the principles, and that these "shining examples of
desegregation" only employ about .5 percent of South
Africa's black population. In fact. Reverend Sullivan
himself, recognizing that the principles he drew up have
not made a dent in South Africa's system of injustice, has
now called for a complete U.S. embargo against South
Africa, including total corporate withdrawal if apartheid
is not ended within two years. Bishop Tutu, who was
Originally afraid that divestment would harm South
Africa blacks, now advocates it. I do not understand how
Mr. Staub can so easily overlook the fact that in spite of
the danger, black leaders of the trade union movement,
South African churches, and political organizations have
found ways to call for divestment. Before being murdered
by the South African police in 1977, equal rights leader
Steve Biko said, "If Washington is really interested in
contributing to the development of a just society in South
Africa, it would discourage investment in South Africa."
Mr. Staub also claims that if we pulled our companies
and investments out of South Africa, they would "just
buy the products they needed from other companies
around the world." This ignores the growing impact of
parallel anti-apartheid movements abroad; Canada,
France and Northern Europe, for example. It also ignores
South Africa's declining economy and the risk involved in
investing there.

SCA TE's $8,000 budget to
be used by new SA exec
By Angelina Wang
in response to a cry for help from the
Student Association Test Bank and the
Student Course and Teacher Evaluation
(SCATE) program, Central Council passed a bill called the Education Act of 198S
at their Wednesday night meeting.
This bill established an Educational Affairs Commissioner who would be a part
of the executive branch of. SA for all
academic and educational affairs.
The duties of the Educational Affairs
Commissioner are to help run the Test
Bank, and to help administer the 'SCATE'
program based upon guidelines set by the
Academic Affairs Committee. ...
"This is a major policy for Central
Council," said chair Bill McCann, in his
introductory remarks. All the members of
the Council agreed on the importance of
the issue of education.
"Academics is why we are all here,"
said Michelle Legendre, Academic Affairs
Committee chair. "This bill will show that
Central.Council,is interested in academic
affairs,"added Steven Russo, Internal Affairs Committee chair.
The bill that Internal Affairs initially introduced called for the establishment of an
Educational Affairs agency which would
be governed by a Board of Directors. The
board would have consisted of the voting
members of the Academic Affairs Committee, the Central Council chair, and the
Commissioner of Educational Affairs.
A great deal of opposition was voiced
toward this idea by SA President Steve
Gawley, who said, "We're not going
about it the right way. I don't think a commissioifisThe answer. We need individuals
in there to do the work."
Mark Rivers concurred by saying there
is "no need to create more bureaucracy."
Council Member Greg Rothschild added,
"It would become a horrible precedent if
we create a new commission under Central
Council. It will become our ultimate
responsibility.'; I think the Executive
Branch is the place to straighten it but
because they have the resources."
The Educatioit-l Affairs Director will be

should be accountable to the Executive
Branch," said Gawley. The Educational
Affairs Commissioner will also free the
Academic- Affairs Committee to be
creative and initiate policy, added Russo.
The problems surrounding the SA Test
Bank and 'SCATE* ^ate back to last spring when the Executive Branch budgeted a
$500 stipend for an Educational Affairs
Director, but "Steve Gawley decided not
to fill the position,"'according to Russo.
"The only reason why we want to pass it
(the bill) tonight is because of the problems
of SCATE," said Russo. SCATE has a
budget of $8000 appropriated by SA that is
not being used," he added.
Legendre said she did not think the Test
Bank would open on time, but said, "let's
open with what we have. One hundred
tests are better than none." According to
Legendre the Academic Affairs Committee spent about 150 hours cleaning and
typing the exams. She agreed that the Test
Bank needed supervision rather than
Jl
volunteers.
"I think we worked out an excellent
compromise here," he added. The meeting
was "a total victory for Internal Affairs
and Central Council, The compromises
made will make everything smoother."
said Russo.

Doug Tuttle, SA Media Director agreed and suggested a Candidates Forum, to which he added,"Leaders must arise in a worthy way."
Tuttle also said that "these are
important positions," and that
"winning is more than just the
number of posters you hang. You
should drastically limit the
number of posters." As alternatives, Tuttle suggested "throw
a keg party" or "have the candidates go door to door."
Voter turnout was also an issue
at the hearing. Doug Tuttle said
"increasing turnout should be a
priority."
SA Minority Affairs Coordinator Paco Duarte responded
with "You should change the
time constraints on the voting
itself." He felt that two days

"Let the (Student) Voice cover

Gawley.
On the topic of campus
debates, Mike Miller, committee
member, said that "Quad debates
must end."
On the issue of Financing Committee, member Steve Russo asked Gawley, "How much did you
spend on your campaign? Do you
think that's a good amount for a
candidate to spend?"
Gawley replied that he had
spent "around $400" and he added that it was "a good amount. I
pay for most of my school, and I
borrowed most of the money. I
think SA campaigns should be
subsidized." Gawley said he felt
that, "We should ban campaign
contributions."
BUI McCann, Central Council
chair, said, "I don't think we
should subsidize elections."
"I probably spent $700 on my
campaign," said Miller. "I had to

think Steve must have spent more

candidates." .
Miller commented on the
Albany Student Press coverage of
the election by saying that the
first coverage of the election was
in the endorsement issue.
ASP Editor-in-Chief Heidi
Gralta replied, "By the time we
got the names of the candidates it
was too late to do introductions,
and we like to wait until nominations are closed before we do
anything." She said candidates
have more time to campaign,
which would increase public
awareness.

CONTRIBUTING EDITOR
What you see is not what you get.
That message came from a Tibetan Buddhist his
eminence Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche, speaking in
the Performing Arts Center Monday night. Rinpoche, one of the four holders of the Kagyu lineage
of Tibetan Buddhism, spoke on "Awakened HeartBrilliant Mind."
Rinpoche prefaced his lecture by explaining that
"though from the conventional point of view Buddhism is a major religious tradition founded in the
East that doesn't make it something eastern or
oriental...Ralizing our most basic spiritual qualities
is not merely something eastern or oriental," he
said.
Speaking through a translator from ttoe Kagyu
monestary in Woodstock, New York, Rinpoche explained, "Buddhism addresses basic and fundamental truths of both phenomenal world and our
inner individual situation; it is not a rigid set of
beliefs and customs designed for a particular group
or locality."
Growing increasingly animated as he spoke,, Rinpoche continued, "There are two ways we relate to
the world: first, what we perceive it as; and second,
what the phenomenal world is, fundamentally and
ultimately. Most of the time, our relationship with
the world is not through its basic nature but
through our perceptions. of it. So we don't experience what we are fundamentally or what the
world is fundamentally, but what we see, which
isn't in accordance with our basic nature."
This, Rinpoche explained, is where a person's
anxieties are based. Trusting our perceptins as the
basis for experiencing reality "produces dissatisfaction, a very huge gap. We feel that something is
missing and no matter what we do the scale of
dissatisfaction increases, because we act in accor-
"That is why," he said, "our lives seem very
much like a joke — like each of us are a big important leader in name with no power at all and no idea
of what's happening. What we have is a big name,
'I.' But it is all parrotting; there's no sense of being
alive or being present. The habit of observation,
distraction and confusion has made puppets of us
— machines being operated from behind," said
Rinpoche.
,• -, •'
Buddhism, explained Rinpoche, offers a way to
break this cycle of illusion and suffering." The
Tibetan word for buddhism has the meaning internalizing, or internalistic, that one needs to turn inwardly and work with oneself, developing a better
sense of who you are, and through that, of the
world," he said.
'. /
Achieving what the Buddhists call mindfulness,
thrugh meditative practice, is the path that will lead
one back to the fundamental and ultimate experience of reality, claimed Rinpoche. "When you
have proper mindfulness — an alert, fresh, attentive mind — you have a sense of power knowing
what's really happening around you and inside
you," he said.
"What is necessary to have a healthy basis for the
experience of one's life," Rinpoche emphasizzed,
"is an understanding that dissatisfaction and confusion are not from the outside, but an expression
of the habit of our mind that we've become adddicted to. We haven't recognized the inheritance of
our own richness, but through hlbitual clinging we
hafe gone against what we are and what we have.
Before closing, Rinpoche told his audience that
"Buddhism is universal, based on the common
sense of what is, who we are and what the world
Is."
By Craig Wortman
Irving Howe began his presentation
Wednesday night in the Assembly Hall
with, an apology, claiming that, "the
advertisement was cleverly and shrewdly
ambiguous" in hinting at the nature of his
speech. It implied that he would say
something "everyone would want to
hear."
Howe's audience, however, was not
disappointed. The majority of the approximately 100 people who came to see him
speak were members of the Albany community, and SUNYA faculty who were
familiar with his work.

The nature of the American political
system didn't help the Socialist cause, said
Howe. "Our system combines rigidity in
structure with flexibility in parties. The
two party system makes it very difficult for
a third party to get on the ballot, and
bargaining within the parties blurs
ideology."
Though getting on the ballot would have
proved helpful, sectorianism caused
socialist leaders to "almost religiously support their own candidates rather than
anyone else on the ballot no matter how
liberal," said Howe.
This was compounded by the fact that

sonal testimony on responsible drinking.
He was referred to Judicial Board for
disorderly conduct after becoming drunk
and trying to punch a policeman. He told
the audience that, "I was described as the
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde syndrome: calm
and polite when sober, but violent when
drunk."
He asked, "Would you punch a
policeman,, knowing that it's against the
law and he's carrying a gun? Well, when
you're drunk, you don't even know or care
what you're doing. You can't even control
yourself." Covielli got a round of applause for his honesty.
Education was another much-discussed
topic of conversation at the meeting. SA
President Steve Oawley stressed the need
for alcohol education. "SA is committed
to having non-alcoholic programs on campus," he said.
SA Minority Affairs Coordinator Paco
Duarte said he felt that alcohol should not
be banned from campus because "it will
hinder initial development. It is dangerous
not to allow students to drink on campus.
This is where students learn to handle
alcohol and learn their tolerances."
Duarte added that, "students should experience alcohol on campus where it can be
part of their education. Here, there are
counselors at Middle Earth and other services that can teach students about it,
whereas later in life, it will be more
dangerous where there is not help readily
available."
Student Chris Dillan added that,
"drinking is part of the socialization process in college."
Students' rights were another issue that
was brought up. "Students may vote,
marry, and fight in a war at age 18, but not
drink until they are 21. Does that make
sense?" said Zellan, adding, "In the
Federal court case, Bradshaw vs. Rawlings, the role of "in loco parentus" was
not valid anymore, the administration
should not act "in place of parents; rather,
it should have more of a tenant-landlord
relationship with its students."
* "He stressed that, to students, '-'their
dorm rooms are homes away from home,
and students have a right to their own
privacy." If alcohol is forbidden oh campus altogether, "Why should, someone on
campus have differentrightsthan someone
off-campus' if they are old enough to
drink?''
Larry Hartman, chair of SA's Student
Action Committee added that "a selfsufficiency plan, In which students would
have a landlord-tenant relationship with
the University, would not permit University officials to enter students' rooms
without permission."
Possible results of the implementation
of "21" were mentioned. According to
Carol Slinger,, Area Coordinator for
Alumni Quad, the University will "focus
on the issue of multiple containers, such as
kegs or beer balls. Given the small percentage of students who will be old enough to
drink, about IS percent, large amounts of
alcohol won't be necessary."
Chris Hazzard, Residence Director on
Dutch Quad, said "to maybe make some
areas of the quads 'wet areas,' such as the
U-lounges." She also added that "Resident Directors do have access to the birthdates of students, so they know who will
be underage and who will not."
SA Controller Eric Schwartzman said he
feels that "seniors pay 25 percent of the
mandatory student fee in the school. Most
seniors will be 21 by December 1. Those
students who are old enough should be
allowed to congregate where. they want.
Apprimately 30 peeople spoke regarding
the issue of the 21-year-old purchasing
age. The meeting, which lasted over an
hour and a half, concluded with Phil Botwinik's statement that, "this meeting
didn't facilitate enough room to answer
everyone's concerns. Public hearings on
other quads as well would be beneficial.
Many students expressed a great deal Of
concern for the implementation of a
responsible and just alcohol policy for
responsible students."

Sheehan leads pack in stirring N.J. sweep
By David Blette
STAFF WRITER
Facing the most treacherous
and dangerous competition of the
season, the Albany State men's
cross-country team came out on
top over three teams this past
weekend.
The harriers traveled to Garret
mountain New Jersey, Saturday
the fifth, where they defeated
Division III schools Ramapo,
15-50; Trenton, 20-43 and Mont-.
clair State, 20-43. This gives
Albany a 10-4 record with two
more teams left on the Harrier
duel meet schedule.
The harriers arrived at the
storm-ravaged racecourse Saturday to find only two of the
originally four scheduled teams
present: Ramapo and Trenton.
Arriving about 20 minutes before
the starting time was home team
Montclair State. One team
Queens College never showed up
for the meet.
Montclair and Trenton
together showed reluctance to run
because of the bad course conditions. The Albany runners
though, were not about to turn
around and take a 3 Vi hour van
ride home without running, so the
meet was on.
Runners from Trenton and
Montclair took out the pace hard
from the start, as Albany hung
loose. Soon these front runners
dropped back and Albany took
control of the race. Co-captain
Craig Parlato steadily moved into
a 30-yard lead about half-way
through the race. Unfortunately
Parlato did not get the victory he
deserved. Due to a badly marked
and poorly organized course,
Parlato took a wrong turn in the
woods and lost his position.
Albany was able to make up for
this setback with its strong pack
running, as Albany State runners
took positions third through
ninth at the finish.
Taking first in a time of 27:35
was "mystery runner" Ron Kulik
of Montclair State. A recent
transfer to Montclair State, Kulik
was not in uniform.
"Some of our guys didn't even
know who he was running for."
commented co-captain Ian
Clements, who observed the race.
Taking second in 27:44 was
Trenton runner Tim Gallagher.
Following him to lead the seven
man Albany pack was senior
Kevin Sheehan in a time of 27:51.
Close behind was last week's
"Runner of the Meet" Tim Hoff
and the consistant Jack Glaser,
both who finished in 27:54.
Glaser, who has taken 5th place in
his last three races commented on
the conditions.
"A storm had washed a lot of
mud off the hills so we ran down
steep rocky hills into ankle deep
mud at the bottom. We also had
to run through a one foot deep
stream. The conditions were terrible but kind of fun.".
Next to finish was Senior Ray
Vofper in 28:11, followed by
Trevor Hash in 28:19 and Pat
Paul in 28:26. Finishing up the
pack in ninthwas junior Scott
Miller in a time of 28:30.
Miller has been a pleasant surprise for Albany in the past few
weeks. Transfering here from
Kent State last spring, his running
has improved recently as he was
recognized as "Runner of the
Meet" this weekend.
Finishing up further back in the
race were Charles Blanchet, 13th
place, in 28:41; Vernon Miller,
17th, in 29:12; Craig Parlato,
18th, in 29:12 and Paul Dietz,
24th, in 30:14.
When asked how he felt about
the results of the meet. Coach
Munsey responded.
"I was just tickled pink with
the results. If we can get a couple
of guys up ahead of that pack we
will be strong for the big meets
coming up."

Lazarides scores hat trick as Danes blank Vassar
By Mike Mac Ad am
STAFF WRITER
When the Albany State
women's soccer team faced
Vassar last Monday, Dane forward Joanna Lazarides proved
that lightning doesn't strike twice.
Lightning struck three times as
Lazarides accounted for all the
scoring in the 3-0 romp.
"Joanna is out of her slunjp,"
Albany Coach Amy Kidder proclaimed, "and the goals were
evenly spread out enough, which
was a real confidence booster. It's
not like we scored one early and
got two more at the end of the
game."
The Danes improved their
record, to 4-6 with a dominating
offense - and solid defensive
strategy by Kidder.
Kidder moved Cheryl Hensen
to midfield and Laura McGrath
to stopper."We had trouble closing up the middle, so~ Cheryl
counterbalanced that."
Lazarides drew first blood at
13:54 of the first half when she
cut toward the goal from the left
and blasted a shot into the upper
right-hand corner, of the net.
"That was hard for her because
she's left-footed,". Kidder ex-
plained "but her right foot is
pretty strong, too."
The three-goal performance by
Lazarides ended a frustrating
three-game scoring drought for
the Danes, and revealed the type
of offense that until now has not
fully blossomed.
"We didn't get caught up in
their game," Kidder said, "we
dictated the pace and got some
offensive punch." .
Lazarides' second goal came at
6:37 of the second half when forward Joan McNamara drew the
Vassar goal keeper out of position
and fed the ball down the goal
line to Lazarides, who onetouched it for the easy score. The
goal 'almost cost the Danes,
however, as McNamara Wound
up at the bottom of a goal-mouth
pile-up.
"I looked up after the goal,
and I saw just a pile of bodies,"
recalled Kidder, "I guess their
keeper, who's really big, fell on
top of Joan. Luckily, she got out
of there without any serious
injury."
. Lazarides put the icing on the
cake at 35:05 when she hammered
a direct kick past the Vassar
keeper.
The physical preparedness that
kept the Danes close against hardrunning Cortland paid dividends
against Vassar as Albany was able
to put the ball back into play on
throw-ins and goal kicks quickly.
"They (Vassar) weren't in
shape, so they got the ball back

Albany State netwomen stomped by Skidmore

A victory, or even a strong showing by

have done the team a world of good. It
would have gotten the team on track for its
pivotal match against SUNY rival
Binghamton on Friday. The loss the team

suffered, , however, was anything but
beneficial.
The Danes made far too many mistakes,
but also played several awesome matches.
But in the end, the team just didn't play
well enough to keep a consistant Skidmore
team from shutting them out, 9-0.
The team got yet another excellent performance from its stellar number one
singles player, Geri Chiodo. Chiodo
played despite having a cold, but lost to
Pam Thompson, 4-6, 2-6.
Thompson, who is ranked in the top 10
in Division III tennis, beat Chiodo last
year, 6-4, 7-5. Thompson also won the
SUNYAC championship last year, so the
fact that Geri gave her a tough match was
promising.
At second singles, Caryn Levy lost in
three sets to Val Alliger, 6-1,1-6, 1-6. Levy
gave it her all, going all out in the first set.
But she didn't pace herself, and she reinjured her back. She couldn't keep Alliger
rom taking the second and third sets
convincingly.
At third singles, Nancy Forbes was
beaten by Skldmore's third singles player
1-6, 6-7, At fourth singles, Ellen Katz was
beaten convincingly by Krista McShane,
1-6, 2-6.
Liz Feinberg, who's normally a very
consistent player, made more mistakes
than she did all year. She lost to Carolyn
Spellman 3-6, 5-7. It was a very close
match, but Feinberg just couldn't pull
even at one set each.
Natalie Goldberg, at fifth singles, lost a
heartbreaker to Barb Neuhinger 6-7 (6-8),
6-2, 3-6. Natalie played erraticly hitting
awesome winners, and then making
mistakes. Natalie also couln't win many of
the key points that determined the match.
Lisa Valins lost quickly to the sixth
singles player, 2-6, 2-6. At first doubles,
Chiodo and Katz lost to Alliger and
McShane 4-6, 1-6.
At second doubles. Levy and Goldberg
lost an 8 game pro set to Pam Thompson
and Kim Burnett. Levy's back was bothering her, and it seemed she and Goldberg
were willing to rush the entire set. They
lost 8-4.
At third doubles, Nina Cheung and
Nancy Forbes lost to Sally Livingston and
Barb Schwartz, 1-6, 6-7. Nina and Nancy
didn't have their rythm in the first set. The
match did feature some remarkable
returns from Forbes.
But the team seems ready to go.
Explains Chiodo:"We're all really ex- -
cited about playing Binghamton- We have
a very good chance of winning the
SUNYAC championships. Binghamton
will be our greatest challenge."
Binghamton coach Curt Coutts agrees,
stressing that "both Albany and Binghamton will most probobly be the two teams
battling it out for the SUNYAC
championship."
Coach Myers and the Danes would love
nothing more, but first they must hope
they can do it in Binghamton this Friday.
Coach Myers summed up the match:
"We made too many mistakes that we just
couldn't get away with. Skidmore's too
good a team not to take advantage of all
those mistakes"-piand th?y did.
The Danes will lay it all on the line Friday, when they go up against their biggest
SUNY rival Binghamton. They won't be
able to make any mistakes against
Binghamton either.

Bob Lewis. "We have to play
very well in this tournament."
The Danes host the tournament, which began this morning
and continues until tomorrow at
the Capitaland Racquet Club in
Albany.
With the emergence of stronger
tennis programs at other SUNY
schools, the Danes' six year
domination of the tournament is
coming to an end. Even last year,
the tournament came down to the
doubles finals.
lh last year's finals, Albany,
ahead of Binghamton by a mere
half point, was playing the Colonials in two doubles finals and
needed only one of those wins to
clinch the championship. The
Danes took both of the two matches to win the championship
with 20 points, leaving Binghamton trailing with "17 1/2 and the
University of Buffalo with 15.
This year's tournament has all
the makings of a repeat of last
year. The competition will be
close between the three top teams
and Oswego shouldn't be totally
overlooked either. Doubles play
will once again be a key- factor
deciding the eventual champions.
"One thing in our favor is we
have a good schedule," said
Lewis. "We play a lot of tough
matches."
The fact that the Danes aren't a
shoo-in certainly doesn't take
anything away from the team,
which enters the tournament with
an 8-1 record. It will be even more
impressive if they win after facing
such tough competition.
"I welcome the challenge,"
said Lewis. "It's good to see the
other programs getting up there."
The University at Buffalo
enters the SUNYACs with a 7-2
record, suffering 5-4 losses to
both the University of Rochester
and Edinbourgh University. The
team is traditionaly strong at the
top of the ladder and should be
seeded high at the first four
singles positions and first
doubles.
At first singles for Buffalo is
Ken White, the winner of this
fall's ECAC tournament. White,
defending SUNYAC champion at
second singles and at first
doubles, comes into the tournament undefeated in his eight dual
matches. White beat Albany's
Tom Schmitz in the finals for the
second year in a row in last year's
SUNYACs.
According to Lewis, when
White was playing second singles
last year, he was extremely close
in ability to the first singles player
Russ Trinjali. Albany's number
one singles player Dave Grossman
beat Trinjali to capture the
SUNYAC championship at that
flight last year. Grossman will
now be pitted against White.
"He's just as good as Trinjali.
The two of them are very close in
ability," said Lewis. "Even
though Grossman is defending
champion, White will probably be
the number one seed based on his
performance this fall. He's
definitely favored to win."
Playing second singles for Buffalo is Dan Scheulfahd, with a 7-0
dual match record. At third
singles is Ed Wagner, who comes
in with at the 6-1 mark. Tony
Arias, younger brother of professional tennis player-Jimmy Arias,
plays fourth singles, having a 5-2
record,
Buffalo's last two spots are
probably their weakest. Mark
Szafnickl posted a-6-1 record at
fifth singles. Playing sixth singles
with a 5-2 record is Brian
Myerhofer.
"At five and six, I don't think
Buffalo is too strong," said
Lewis, "how ever, Binghamton
has pretty good balance."
Buffalo's first doubles team of
White and Schuelfand should
take a top seed. The rest of their
doubles teams pose less of a
threat than duos from Albany or
Binghamton.
Binghamton holds a 4-1 record,
losing to Bloomsburg State from
Pennsylvania. Traditionally,
Binghamton is a team with good
overall balance, which means they
might not go as far in the top
flights as in the lower ones. For
instance, last year Binghamton
didn't make it to the first or second singles finals, but made it into all of the rest in singles and second and third doubles.
Rob Grundfast plays first
singles for the Colonials. His only
loss of the season was to
Blumsburg. At number two

took last year's sixth singles

An interesting feature of Sweet Dreams
is the meshing of the glamour of stardom
with the crassness of southern small town
living. The "yankee" audience is in for a
refreshing array of (often colorful) expressions and a mode of behavior that is truly a
lesson in southern culture. There is a certain charm in the down-to-earth informality we find in this Virginian town; we are
caught up, not only in the lives of the principal characters, but in their world as well.
But then Patsy Cline's life always was a
mixture of these two worlds. Even while
becoming more and more successful, she
never lost perspective of who she was or
what she wanted. She never stopped being
a down home gal — and never allowed
fame to control her life. Patsy reveled in
her triumphs; she reaped the benefits
wholeheartedly; but it never consumed
her, never became her reason for living.

weet Dreams is the story of Patsy
Cline, country singing star. It's that
simple. Or that complicated.
Rhonda
Friedman
Patsy Cline did not have an exactly normal life. Still, through, all her ups and
downs she maintained her charmingly
frank way of looking at the ^orld, ,"I;fjigger," she says early in mirrri&vhr,"Someone's gotta be happy .'.r;ar$.Tt)in1ght;as
well be me."
Sweet Dreams, while a chronicle of the
singer's life, is not, however, a typical
'watch her struggle to the top' film. We do
not see Patsy running from audition to
audition, slaving away in an effort to rise
to stardom and prove herself a success.
Rather, she is more family oriented than
one might expect. Her main concern in life
is simply to make enough money to retire
and live in a nice big house "with yellow
roses all around it."
Cast in the main role is none other than
the beautiful Jessica Lange, who many may
remember for her soft-spoken passivity in
footsie. She does a delightful about-face
this time.around as the bubbly, fun-loving
Patsy Cline. It is hard to believe that the
timid victim from Tootsie is now the earthy .southern wench who'll take no bull
from anyone. Her character, however, is
hard to dislike; no sooner is her head
fltrcffyhibaclcin defiance than it is tilted forWard in giddy laughter — and both she
arid the audience have forgotten entirely
what the fight, if there was one, was about
in the first place.
Ed Harris is convincing as Patsy's husband, the charming and sensual (albeit unmistakably lower class) Charlie Dick. He is
a man who, though engulfed by his love
for Patsy, remains enslaved by his own
banal desires. He is easy to fall in love
with, easy to forgive. We feel Patsy's passionate adoration for him, coupled with
frustrated rage at his weaknesses. Perhaps
she could have done better by most standards — but for Patsy Cline there was no
one else.
Another wonderful performance is that
of Anne Wedgeworth, Patsy's mother. She
is simple and straightforward. She has been
through her own hell and back and knows
how to take care of herself as well as her
daughter, come what may. Yet, like her
daughter, she is still full of life and youth
and has not forgotten how to laugh. The
rapport between the two on screen is
delicious. They're giggling like schoolgirls
at a dirty joke one minute, falling quickly
into typical mother and daughter roles the
next. The relationship, while a source of
strength for Patsy, is also a source of
humor for the movie. Well into her thirties, we see Patsy threatened that she's "still
not too old to go over mama's knee if you
don't keep a civil tongue in your head!"
The fierce loyalty from her mother is really
the only thing Patsy can definitely count
on.
So it seems that, in a sense, Patsy Cline's
singing career is almost incidental to the
story. That is the problem; we are not sure
whether the movie is really about her
career or if maybe the singing just made
good background music. The film certainly
appears to concentrate more on Patsy's personal life. Yet this is confusing to the
viewer, who is expecting to watch Patsy
Cline kicking and fighting to get to the top.
Another problem comes in the form (or
lack of it, rather) of theme. In short, what is
it7 On the one hand, we are presented with
a voracious, strong-willed woman who
busts her butt to make it as a country
singer. She overcomes obstacles, etc., etc.,
and so forth, but was it really that important to her? The answer, apparently, is no
— not without a fulfilling family life. So
then why does the whole movie seem to
be based on her singing career? Is this film
telling us to go for it all? Or to give up
now, 'cause we can't have everything we
want?
On the more simple level of a life story.
Sweet Dreams is a very interesting account
of Patsy Cline's life and times. It is only if
you look for more than that, that you will
be disappointed. Jessica Lange is a natural,
and definately the best reason to see the
movie. You will walk out of it with a new
insight into the life of Patsy Cline. Oh,
y e s . . . about those yellow roses... does
she get them? Well, you'll have to see the
movie.

William Styron booked for Page
//
A
trailblazing American novelist, a
A\
major name in American fiction,
•* V part of a new breed . . . " This is
how Thomas Smith, assistant director of
the New York State Writer's Institute,
describes William Styron, who will present
a reading on October 15 at 8:00 p.m. at
Page Hall. Although it Is not known
specifically what he will be presenting, it is
j . suspected that he will read from a work in
progress, soliciting reactions from the audience. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity for questions from the audience.
. Robyn
Stein
Styron, most famous for his novel
Sophie's Choice received the Pulitzer Prize
for The Confessions of Nat Turner, a novel
based on the testimony given by a slave
who had led a brief revolt against slave
owners. When it was published In 1967, at
the height of the civil rights movement, it
was considerd quite controversial. Leaders
in the black community saw his portrait of
Nat as unrealistic and based on white
stereotypes, but the book was a literary
and popular success, nonetheless.
Sophie's Choice, his most successful
novel, was also published at a time when
the public's Interest In Its subject matter
was at a peak. In 1979, a renewed concern
about the Holocaust had been spreading
across the nation, and the time was right to
tell the story of Sophie, a beautiful Polish
Catholic, who survived Auschwitz but lost
both of her children and most of her selfesteem there. When Meryl Streep gave her
stunning performance of Sophie" on film,
the book became all the more popular.
In both Sophie's Choice and 77ie Confessions of Nat Turner Styron's style has been
to take history and give a personal interpretation of It. Styron admitted that he did
not adhere closely to Nat Turner's
testimony, but that his novel was a
"meditation on history." And with Sophie's
Choice, he said In an interview that, "I
didn't get to know [Sophie's prototype]
very well and the story as it evolves in the
book is made up. But what I realized is that
It was necessary for me to write about
Auschwitz . . . It was the same sort of territory, modernized, that I explored in The
Confessions of Nat Turner."
There has been some criticism of the fact
that Styron has written about subjects that
might be considered foreign to a white
southern Protestant. One critic wrote in
response, "The question Is not whether
Styron has a right to use alien experiences,
but whether his novel proves that he
knows what he Is writing about. In this Instance, the overriding answer Is yes."
On October 15, the SUNYA community will have the opportunity to decide for
themselves.

unbearably crowded. And occasionally they would
get a good band there (live music, local and national,
is featured three nights a week.) I have fond
memories of the nights I spent struggling to push
and look over other people's shoulders to catch a
glimpse of the likes of 10,000 Maniacs and an a
amazing California garage band named True West
performing on a one foot off the ground, closet size
stage.
Therefore, having very little familiarity with band
members or club owners, 1 can only judge Bogie's
subjectively.
Subjectively, it's a hell of a fun place; The music is
good (an average week at Bogie's might feature the
Newports, Johnny Rabb, and the Sharks, with QBK
deejay Mark McGovern stopping in to spin now
and again), the dance floor is a bit small, but the
dancers are friendly enough, and the people who
work there are nice. It's got a lot going for it.
Bogie's tries to bring in the local music,
spotlighting acts like the Newports, the Sharks, or
the Works from Syracuse. Recently, they've begun
having Johnny Rabb and the Rockers perform every
Wednesday. The music stays basically within the
mainstream; danceable local music that will draw a
crowd. An average Sharks appearance will pull
about 300 people into the club.
The average cover at Bogie's is $1 or $2, although
it may skyrocket all the way to $3 if The Sharks are
playing. For the money. Bogie's is probably the best
club in Albany, especially now that Charlene Shortsleeve (288 Lark's old booking manager) Is in
Rensselaer.
Even taking away the price, Bogie's remains one
of the most important clubs in Albany, and definitely one of the most fun.

Duck Soup
The other club that has received much attention
lately is Duck Soup on 4th Street in Rensselear. Unfortunately, it's location means it can only be reached by car. Opened during the summer and booked
by the ex-manager of 288, it is attempting to serve
as an alternative to the popular clubs in Albany and
As for Duck Soup, there's tremendous potential
there. A $3 — $4 admission charge ($1.25 Buds) to
see some of the freshest original new music is difficult to beat anywhere. And despite some problems
it still must work to overcome, it may be the best
thing to have hit the Capital District in a very long
time.

transportation to and from the club. The shuttle will

warm weather patio are welcome additions for

old milk carts hanging on the upstairs wall do
generate a peculiar warmth and the cardboard
figures of old, gangster-like men are, if nothing else,
interesting features next to the stage/dance floor.

qualify of Club.288, there was something ironically
missing there Saturday night. The old "trendy"
crowd has been replaced by a new "trendy" crowd. I
suppose the owners' attempt to appeal to a broader
crowd, from their point of view, can be perceived as
a success. Sure, there were a handful of punkrockers, but at the same time there were an inordinate amount of yuppie-type people clothed in the
latest Guess designs. The sleaze is gone from 288. In
its place is designer fashion and style. Yes, there's a
new club in Albany. It's not for everybody. But if
you want to go out and spend $3 to dance or see a

Troy. No doubt it is a decent competitor with clubs
288 and Puttin' on the Ritz. It has the potential to be
a carbon copy of both, yet so far it is avoiding such
simple categorization. If anything it resembles the
old 288.
People descend upon Duck Soup just to hang out
and have fun. And the old 288 crowd seems to have
migrated over there as well, a diverse assortment of
people decked in'anything from blue jeans and flannel shirts to ripped t-shirts and workouts. My friend
and I went on a Sunday night. We ordered a $5 bottle of champagne, sat at the bar and drank, and took
it all in. Not once was it ever dull or predictable. A
local performer was going psychadelic on an
acoustic guitar, this an interlude between the opening and headlining acts.
I took a walk around and examined the setup. The
mood was right, but there still seemed to be some
problems with the club. One was that despite its ample size, the square shaped bar was placed about 12
feet from the stage. I was there on a night when
there was 40 or 50 people. If it were a night when a
more popular band like the Chesterfield Kings or
Del Fuegos were performing, it would become difficult to see the stage. People would have to stand
next to it, where the view would be obstructed, or
look across from the other side of the bar. And the 1
a.m. starting time for the main act was a bit late for
anyone on a Sunday night. The managers cannot
forget this is Albany, not New York, and people
have to get up and go to work or school the next
day. On a Friday or Saturday night, however, the
starting time would be perfect.
THE CLUBS
My friend Bob twice broke his right middle toe
twirling and dipping and dancing at I'auly's Hotel,
.117 Central Ave. Both times it was during Johnny
and the Triumphs sets, though we can't remember
which songs, exactly. By the third set (earlier in the
evening crowds were more likely to creep away
machine by providing free drinks . .." Pauly's new
owners have since tried to inject some new feeling
to the establishment — and succeeded — though the
distinction of the most recent addition still goes to
the ladies' room, and the side door "still carries the
iron plates added during the Prohibition to keep
police from kicking in the door." Thai part of
Pauly's personality is tangible in the pressed tin
walls and ceilings. In the old-fashioned Tiffany
lamps and ceiling fans, in the oak panelled bar and
the three great mirrors behind it.
Then, after three and a half years of maintaining
this uniquely appealing sleazy atmosphere, 288

Would I be treated to a Twilight Zone-esque

Rock 'n' Roll was only invented in 'SO's, though,
otherwise it would be doubtful that Pauly's, the
oldest continually operating bar in te Albany area,
could have withstood all the wear and the tear. Built
in 1861 on the former site of a Lutheran cemetery, it
was purchased by John Pauly in 1887, and remained
in the Pauly family until 1975, at which time there
were still plenty of "faithful customers" who, according to a 1977 article in the Knickerbocker News,

Bogie's
Bogie's, located on the corner of Madison and
Ontario just behind the Big Dom's and just across
the street from my house (officially, 297 Ontario), is
smaller than it's reputation. Upon my first visit
there, I was amazed that a club so important to the
Albany music scene could be so little.
Bogie's has been a flagstaff of the Albany music
scene since back before Fear of Strangers were
Albany's biggest band, and the friends who lent me
their Fear of Strangers album to tape, the same ones
who took me to see the Drongos for the first time,
had always spoken of Bogie's with nothing less than
reverential tones.
Of course, it doesn't compare to the pretentiously
redubbed Club 288 as far as actual littleness goes,
but as a club I'd been hearing about since I first
started listening to local music, I'd expected Bogie's
to be something.. .well, something big.
Fortunately, size isn't everything. Bogie's
acoustics were just fine, the crowd (it was a Monday
night Newports show) amiable, and the band very,
very good.
To clear something up, when I speak of "the
Albany music scene," I'm speaking as someone who
likes a lot of the local bands, has been to most of the
local clubs, but who isn't as deeply involved in the
whole thing as someone from WCDB might be.
!
Cafe Loco
ly they lay down some mean rockabilly, though until they get some style they're never going to make it
to Solid Gold. Downtime, who played a mixture of
rock and jazz fusion last Friday night, made good
listening and drew a decent crowd, though I thought
they were pretty well summed up by my friend's
description, "tight but. not amazing." I've heard some
pretty fanatical reviews of the Sun Mountain Fiddler, who appears next at Pauly's Friday Oct. 25.
Other notables include recording artist Rory Block,
and a 19-piece swing band that entertains the crowd
with Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, etc., on the
last Sunday of every month. Most of the bands play
in and around the upper New York State area and
range from frequent to occassional visitors to
Albany and Pauly's. The cover is $2, music starls at
around 10 pm and goes on until 1:30 or 2 am.
The crowd at Pauly's is a lot like Ihe music mixes
between sets; lots of old favorites, but never too
predictable. It's not usually a student atmosphere,
and there's always a few guys with old Puma
sneakers and gooseneck bullies clutched to their
chests; but generally It's friendly people out to have
a good lime.
Food and drink are both inexpensive at Pauly's;
wings and sandwiches come highly recommended,
to say nothing of beer. Two beers come to $1.75,
and there is usually some kind of special on beer or
mixed drinks. For early-risers or non-sleepers, there
is an 8:00 am Happy Hour every day except Sunday. There also seem to be great recreational
possibilities in the long shuffle board table, parallel
to the bar as you walk in the door (House Rule 7 —
Losers buy beer checks for all players.)
The other night a buddy raved to me about a
crazy fiddler who played at an ancient bar
downtown, trying to articulate an experience that is
peculiarly Pauly's; all in vain, of course, just because
a good time anywhere is impossible to describe, being so dependent on time and place, atmospehere,
etc. — mostly on just being there. 1 knew what he
meant Ihough. Once I got hooked on Pauly's, I'd
come in Ihe door nighls, peer Into the long half-lit
rectangle of a room that ends in a loud smoky commotion al Ihe back, and. with Ihe right band and the
right friends, without being able to explain It, I'd
know exactly what it was all about.

Sunday evening. What to do? What to do7 Hmm.
Maybe a movie? No. Dancing? No. How 'bout some
acoustic music? That would hit the spot, but where
to go? Oh yes, Cafe Loco,
Last semester Bob Phaneuf began a concert series
at his quaint Madison Avenue Mexican Restaurant.
He was upset that Albany had no "Listening Room"
for acoustic musicians and receptive audiences.
Since he wasn't open on Sunday nights he decided
to make it happen.
With help from the folks at the Town Crier Cafe,
he and his partner Marcia Tolive learned the ropes
of booking and presentation and set themselves on
their merry way. The initial run featured, among
others, Jorma Kaukonen (in an unplanned electric
set), Odetta, John "Hammond, and Country Joe
McDonald. Oregon also performed a date in midsummer prior to their performance at SPAC.
The success of the shows has forced Phaneuf to
move the performance site to the E.B.A.
Chapterhouse on the corner of Hudson and Lark.
Concerts begin at 9:00 pm and are limited to about
200 seats. The rest of this fall's series Includes the
David Mallet Band on Oct. 13, Liv Taylor on Oct.
20, Greg Brown on Nov. 3, Tamuantinsuyo on Nov.
10, Mose Allison on Nov. 24, and Taj Mahal on
Nov. 15.
Mexican dinners are served before the performances, and appetizers and drinks are served
throughout the night.
Although many clubs feature local acoustic musicians, Cafe Loco is the only local venue consistently
presenting well known acoustic performers,

J.B.'s Theatre
On a warm July night in 1982 a criminal fire dashed the hopes of Albany music lovers to the ground
right next to the charred rafters. J.B. Scott's had
burned. Ever since then a glassy-eyed sigh of
memory and regret has separated the initialed from
the inquisitive . . . until now.
J.B.Scott's is back, in fact if not in spirit, as the all
new J.B.'s Theatre. Owners Doug Jacobs and Vinnie
Birbiglia have made the former Wheels Plus Roller
Rink, located behind Westgate shopping plaza, into
a music club with triple the capacity (2,400) of the
old J.B.'s. Almost comparable in size to the Palace
Theatre, It has already become the major club in
Albany by bringing in acts such as Squeeze, R.E.M.,
and the Ramones.
The owners are working with Northeast Concert
rather than doing all their own booking. All types of
entertainment will be represented, they say, if the
response warrants It. October's concerts include
Nick Lowe, X, and an Albany Hunger Benefit on the
20th.
J.B.'s Theatre has a unique alcohol policy. Anyone
17 or older with valid identification will be admitted. A separate bar area is enclosed and only those
above the legal drinking age will be allowed to
enter. This policy will continue, with few exceptions, when the drinking age increases to 21 in
December.
If you're looking for a quiet place to talk or a
cheap place to hang out, J.B.'s Is not it. On the other
hand, it is Ihe only place to go to sec bigger acts (hat
pass through town. And jus! as it did years ago, J.B.'s
Theatre is putting Albany back on the music map.

"Thanks, John. Ladies and gentlemen, I
stand before you now with no will to say a
single negative comment about my friend,
Mike. I doubt I-would say anything even if
I could think of a juicy tidbit you'd like to
hear. The truth is he's been there when 1
needed him. I remember when I got my
divorce. I called Mike, a lady killer by
reputation, and asked for his help. Sure
enough, he introduced me to the right
woman. And we've been married for two
years now.
"Yes, Mike does smoke too much, I
guess you could call that a flaw, but if a
man's worst attribute is hurting himself,
then I say to you I wish more Mike Winchesters walked this planet. I love you
man, don't forget that." ,
, The hundreds of people in Livingston

"Our next speaker is Mike's, ex-wife,
Marie. Let's give her a big hand," Eldridge
requested and received.
"A five minute ovation," observed
Eldridge, "Some presidents don't even get
that. Hey, is anybody going to take a potshot at Mike?"
A chorus of loud, frenzied "no's"
answered that.
"Okay then. It's time to bring up our
guest of honor."
Michael Winchester rose from his oak;
chair on the podium. Everyone's attention
was pointed toward him. Mike smiled and
waved toward the crowd.
"May I have a minute to think?" he
asked.
Sixty seconds ticked away.
"Ready!" someone shouted.
"Aim."
"Fire."
Several bullets ripped through the small
cardboard bullseye over Michael Winchester's heart.
The roast was over.

He always had a smile on his face, and it
would grow when he saw me. He was

my standing here before you today shows I

we did. I'm so proud of my boy. I'm so

Zonker, after spending some time
• unemployed, is studying to be a doctor at a
facility headed by Duke and Honey, while
Joanie Caucus and Rick Redfern are doing
pretty much the same things they were the
last time we heard from them.
The difference between Doonesbury
and the strip that has become almost as
popular in college circles, Bloom County,
has never been more easy to see than in
Check Your Egos. Almost every strip in
the book has some form of political
message, the only exceptions being the
strips concerned with Zenker's cavorting at
the medical college.
Unfortunately, Zonker is the one
character who has changed the least, and
he suffers from that. Always a favorite, but
always a bit more spacey than any of the
strips other characters, he doesn't translate
into the real world very well, which may
be one of the reasons that Trudeau chose
to keep him In school. However, it
becomes tedious, because the reader has
seen Zonker in school before. The excitement of Doonesbury's return was supposed to be finding out what happens to
everybody, and too much time is spent
with Zonker and Duke, who are doing the
exact same things they've been doing since
they were first introduced.
The book is very funny, proving once
again that there's a big difference between
Doonesbury and any other comic strip.
The series dealing with Mike's first Job as
an ad man, a campaign to sell Reagan to
Black voters, is cutting, and underscores
how well Trudeau con mix his political
feelings with humor. .
All in all, the Doonesburys and the
Redferns are the characters who've aged
most gracefully. Trudeau's scries on the
homeless, with Rick Redfern as it's centerpiece, mixes humor with deadly
seriousness as one strip. ends with a
homeless woman being covered by snow
while sleeping in front of the White House.
The rest of Doonesbury's cast still seem
a bit immature, and don't go over as well
any more, but this may be because
Trudeau doesn't really focus on them
enough.
And the book's namesake series, which
dealt with the making of the USA for
Africa video, was by and large a
throvyaway, except for one great moment
when an anonymous voice calls out from the chorus, "Quincy? I miss my entourage,
man."

Moolb County (AP) — Convicted rapist
and murderer Michael Winchester was executed by firing squad this morning in the
courtyard of Livingston Prison. Doctor
William Austin pronounced Winchester
dead at 6:23 a.m. "Three bullets pierced his
heart. There was no suffering. He died instantly," Austin said.
Present at the early morning execution
were Winchester's parents, his ex-wife,
Marie, prison warden Stanley Coleman,
and the original prosecuting Judge, John
Eldridge. "He got what he deserved. Justice
was carried out today," Eldridge said. "He
was a menace to society." Winchester was
convicted October 19, 1983 on eight
counts of rape and first degree
manslaughter in the deaths of eight prostitutes.

Winning teams key to SA deficit
By Lisa Rlzzolo
. Although the recent five percent budget
cuts for Student Association funded
groups is due largely to athletic teams
overspending, the reason behind it is far
less grim than its results.
. According to Mark Rivers, chair of the
Intercollegiate Athletic Committee of Central Council one of the main reasons for
the. approximately $7743 overspending is
that more teams made it to the finals than
were expected to. Ten thousand dollars
was allocated to the post-season contingency fund, which is used when teams
qualify for the finals. So many teams
qualified for post-season play said Rivers,
that $15,313 was spent, leaving a $5,313
deficit in the post-season contingency
fund.
According to SA Controller Eric
Schwartzman, the. extra money was spent
"against the general SA banking
account."
Men's Varsity basketball coach, Dick
Sauers, said that the National Collegiate
Athletic Association (NCAA) has reimbursed the teams for post-season play in
the past, but now the women's division III
basketball team also has a post-season
tournament and the NCAA cannot afford
to reimburse the teams u r more. "The
team cannot be denied attending the
playoffs," said Sauers.
According to Schwartzman, another
cause for the deficit is inflation in food
prices.
"The teams are budgeted a certain
amount of money for each meal. At midyear there became a need to increase the
per diem. When the team's money
allowance was increased, the appropriated
fund was not i n c r e a s e d , " said
Schwartzman.
When asked why they took the risk of
creating a deficit, Schwartzman said, "It

"We are going to
keep better tabs with
the teams this
year. . ."

was something we felt was unavoidable."
The lack of gate ticket sales was another
cause for the deficit. According to the
schedule of receipts and expenditures from
the athletic, advisory board activities,
$6,000 was estimated for gate receipts and
only $5,290 was taken in, leaving a $710
deficit. "We over-anticipated what gate
receipts would be," explained Rivers.
According to varsity baseball coach Ed
Zaloom, the baseball team overspent their
budget because "when baseball is scheduled, you figure for a few rainouts. Two
years' ago twenty-eight games .were
scheduled and drily twenty-three were
played. Last year twentyrseveri games were
scheduled and twenty-six were played, so
more money was needed than anticipated.
We just got lucky as far as weather was
concerned. We had a nice Spring in
Albany last year."
The athletic over-spending created "a
deficit in the SA budget leat year, and, as a
result, SA was forced to cut funded
groups' budget spending lines by 5 percent
this year and income lines by 3 percent.
The athletic fund was not cut.
According to Schwartzman, the reason
is that athletic teams receive a separate
portion of money from the Student Activity fund. The athletic budget is controlled
by the SUNY Board of Trustees, while SA
controls the budgets of other campus
groups.
"If we cut one basketball game it
doesn't only affect SUNYA. SUNY all
conference doesn't want one game to messup t h e e n t i r e s c h e d u l e , " said
Schwartzman.
When asked how a deficit will be avoided this year, Rivers said, "We are going to
keep better tabs with the teams this year
and work closer with them so we know
when they are coming close to overspending their budget. Then we can help them
out."

SUNY audit
finds misused
sabbaticals
Albany, N. Y.
(AP) SUNY's sabbatical leave program
and the financial controls at one of its
colleges in Syracuse have been criticized
in audits issued by State Comptroller
Edward Regan.
Regan said last Thursday that some
SUNY academic and administrative
employees were taking sabbatical leaves
improperly by not meeting all conditions of the program.
The leave policy allows employees to
take off a year at half their normal
salary or a half year at full pay to travel,
study, do research or write. During the
two accademic years ending June 30,
1984, SUNY spent $18.5 million to pay
1,027 employees on leave, the audit
said.
The audit found that 14 employees
failed to return to SUNY for at least one
year after their leaves, in violation of
SUNY policy, but no attempt was made
to recover their sabbatical salaries of
$228,000.
In addition, the audit said that: five
employees were granted leaves even
though the required six years hadn't
elapsed since their last sabbatical leaves,
23 were granted leaves based on vague
proposals, 34 performed activities on
leave that differed significantly from
their approved activities, and 12 failed
to accomplish their leave objectives
because they became sick.
Other employees failed to provide
enough information about their leaves,
the audit found.
The audit also said SUNY failed to
follow recommendations in a 1980 audit

Quad walks shed light on dangerous areas
By Olivia Abel
To promote and improve campus safety,
Student Association is conducting
"lighting walks" around each quad to inspect the safest and most dangerous places
to be at night.
SA Media Director, Doug Tuttle, led
about 20 students around Indian Quad
Thursday night, pointing out areas that
should be avoided and noting things that
the University could do to improve campus
safety.
Major suggestions included fixing
broken lights and making existing lights
brighter, removing large bushes and trees
along the path to the parking lot and installing more emergency blue light phones
on Perimeter Road.
Although not much of Indian Quad is
brightly lit, the Indian Quad parking lot
and Perimeter Road area surrounding the
quad Is considered one of the most unsafe
places on campus, according to Tuttle.
There is only one blue light emergency
phone in the parking lot and it is located
close to the quail. Tuttle suggested that it
should be placed closer to Perimeter Road,
and most of the students on the walk
agreed.
The soccer field behind Indian Quad Is
also considered a potentially dangerous
area, said Tuttle. Students often walk
through the field at night returning from
popular hang-outs like Suiters and Across
the Street Pub. One student described it as
"walking through total darkness."
"We're trying to add a sense of urgency where to walk and where not to walk and
to improve lighting on campus. We want to make my job as an escort easier."

the walk because she "wanted to know women should never walk alone." Ginzberg, who is actively involved in the
Women's Safety Task Force said she feels
that "because of Karen Wilson people will
take this issue more seriously." Wilson, a
SUNYA student, disappeared over six
months ago.
While Cinzberg quoted an administrative official who said that there
had never been a rupe on Indian Quad, she
said she feels that improvement is needed
on the campus to insure that there never is.
Ginzberg said she wants to make
students aware of Women's Safety
Awareness Day on Nomvcmber 7. The
theme of the event will be "Living Safely
In an Unsafe World," and will include a
variety of workshops and. events.
It Is very important for first-year
students to attend the event because there

According to Tuttle, "attacks occur

that the more students who get involved,
the greater the chance the administration
