Hoffman, Newcomb Win Awards
by Stuart C. Stow Despite a total campus black-out that struck Stockton at 10:30 p.m. Friday March 23, the First Annual Awards Banquet was held with Mark N e w c o m b and Lorianne Hoffman receiving " O u t s t a n d i n g Athletes" Awards. The buffet was held in the commons starting at 6 p.m. Trophy Donor Maurice J. Krasney presented awards to Mark Newcomb and Lorianne Hoffman for outstanding performance in Stockton sports. Mr. Krasney presented an "Outstanding Athletes" Plaque to Nicholas Werkman for S t o c k t o n College. " T h e p l a q u e , " a c c o r d i n g to Werkman, "will be in Don Bragg's office until the gymnasium is built. Then it w i l l b e h u n g in t h e gymnasium." Among those attending the presentation were Donald Bragg, Nicholas Werkman, Les Salzman, and Woodworth Thrombley (who was present for Mr. Bjork). The buffet was attended by athletes from Stockton's major sport's teams, by honored guests, and by the Bragg family. The food was prepared completely by Mrs. Bragg, who served it along with the aid of her children and some friends. "People don't realize the work that goes into preparing a meal like this," said the attractive housewife Mrs. Bragg, the woman in the Kitchen, claimed "it took me four days to prepare this meal." The meal consisted of lasagna, meatballs, tossed salad, fried chicken, and coldcuts. Drinks served were cold beer and Cold Duck. A f t e r - t h e b u f f e t , an impromptu dance was held with many of the remaining guests enthusiastically joining in. Only a few people remained

Stockton Student Union To Hold Elections Soon The S t o c k t o n Student Union Steering Committee is c o m p o s e d of o n e representative from every school organization having at l e a s t 5 m e m b e r s . To accommodate those persons who aren't represented by any o r g a n i z a t i o n , 9 at-large Steering Committee seats are open. The Steering Committee functions as the center of the Student Union. Over the past few m o n t h s a number of smaller committees have been formed within the S.U.: the organizing, education, m e m b e r s h i p , research and election committees. The p u r p o s e of the Steering Committee is to coordinate all of these committees, hold general meetings and act on
issues voted on at general meetings. Right now, because it is only recently organized, the Student Union is structured only in an ad-hoc manner. It's essential that elections are carried out to get the Steering Committee working and make the S.U. generally more open and structurally sound. The elections committee of the S.U. urges any member of the Student Union who would be interested in working for the S.U. to run. Only if members of the S.U. commit themselves can the S.U. survive. N o m i n a t i o n forms are available in the Argo office or at t h e S t u d e n t U n i o n information desk. Any S.U. member can run if she or he
has the required 5 signatures of other S.U. members on the form. Nomination forms must be returned to the Argo office by 4:00 p.m. on Friday April 6th. Elections will take place from 10-7 on April 11, 12, and 13. Elections will work in the following manner: A ballot will be provided with the names of all nominees. Each person voting will vote for 9 people (or less) that he or she would like to see on the Steering Committee. The 9 persons with the largest pluralities of votes will become Steering Committee members. O n l y S t u d e n t Union m e m b e r s , can vote, but membership petitions will be available at the poll so that persons can become members and vote.

Dean of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, visited St. Andrew's college in Laurenburg, North Carolina, and liked what he saw. When he returned to Pomona, he assisted in developing plans which resulted in- the new science lab at Stockton State College, patterned after that of St. Andrew's. Moury stated, ""1 liked the idea of all sciences being taught in one lab. This gives some significant savings." In the Stockton science lab there will be one storeroom, and students will obtain materials as needed. Said Moury, "We are putting emphasis on interdisciplinary work. Students interact and often learn more than what they are specifically studying." The new lab will be 75 feet wide and 180 feet long. All support facilities will be built around the central space.
will be three " w a l k - i n " environmental chambers which are small (8' x 10') rooms needed for experiments which demand close control of the e n v i r o n m e n t . Within these rooms there is the capability to constantly monitor and control l i g h t , t e m p e r a t u r e , and humidity. According to Moury, "The lab will hold a series of utility islands, containing a manifold with five water taps. They will be built around floor trenches which contain drains, electricity, water, and exhaust pipes." A greenhouse, 90 feet by 10 feet, is attached to the lab. A potting room is situated close by. Other support facilities include a small seminar room, some instrument labs, shops, a vivarium, storage for specimen cases, and a service wall.

Harlem Prof. Speaks at Stockton Ed Carpenter spoke to a large group of Stockton students in the Lecture Hall on April 6th. The topic he spoke on was "Humanizing Our Technological Education. "
Edward F. Carpenter was educated in the New York City schools. He was a varsity basketball player for Commerce High School, the Harlem Branch Y.M.C.A., and a Golden Gloves boxer. He advanced from private to First Lieutenant of an anti-aircraft battery in the United States Army. He was awarded the Purple Heart, the Phillipine liberation Medal and the Medal f o r the Defense of the American Continent. He attended Long Island University and was awarded t h e B . S . D e g r e e in physchology. He was a teacher in the New York City school system as well as a licensed educational and vocational guidance counselor. He has a Masters Degree in personnel psychology from Columbia

Dr. Carpenter served as a consultant for HARYOU-ACT and was principally responsible for the writing of the chapter on education in the document, 'Youth in The Ghetto'. He also m a d e a s t u d y of the community of South Jamaica
College Center Due
Barry McDowell, director of Campus Activities, refers to it as the "college community living center"; the 'it' is the soon a v a i l a b l e student complex. Barry, who will be co-ordinator of activities, explains that his terminology is i m p o r t a n t . He wants to emphasize the fact that it will before the entire community and that the area should be the " c e n t e r " of most of the College's activities. The complex consists of 24,000 sq. ft. of space, costing 1.6 million dollars to complete. The wing will consist also of two floors. The bottom floor encompasses the cafeteria, the bookstore, and a patio lounge. On the top floor, there will be 4 meeting rooms, 2 T.V. rooms, a variety of typing rooms, pinball machines, ping pong tables, two listening
rooms, a large meeting lounge for formal activities, and a smaller student lounge for socializing. In a d d i t i o n to these activities, communities from outside the campus will be able to hold meetings in the various rooms and art exhibits will be sponsored in the area. A special project that Barry is proposing is to have a crafts workshop room, available to all students. In the months preceding the actual opening of the center, Barry is interested in forming a council to establish opening and closing times of activities areas, space managing priorities, and other policies concerning the center. Barry adds that jobs will be available and that interested students should see him about jobs, being on the council, and if you have any questions at all. â€”Joe Donohue

The Godfather's Dilemma Many Americans of Italian of Italians that allowed them i m p o r t a n t e ' l e m e n t s in
a n c e s t r y have a curious love-hate relationship with the Mafia. On the one hand they complain that all the negative publicity on the Mafia creates t h e b e l i e f that Italians contribute disproportionately to crime in America and thus fans the dying ; embers of prejudice against their people. On t h e o t h e r h a n d , Italian-Americans are generally not reluctant whenever a suitable occasion arises, which they ensure is often, to hint to their non-Italian friends that their Uncle Sal or cousin Vito, or even themselves have "mob" connections. In short, many I t a l i a n s privately enjoy associating themselves with the image of the Mafia's power while at the same time protesting publicly that the Mafia is merely a phantasm c o n j u r e d up b y s o m e disgruntled journalist who had it in for Italians ever since he got heartburn from eating a pepperoni pizza. Actually, the putative power of the Mafia is a long-standing subject of d e b a t e . . Most who- have investigated the matter agree t h a t since 1930 Italian criminals organized loosely into geographically specific " f a m i l i e s " have played an important role in organized crime in America. Syndicated crime, however, existed long before the Italians arrived in this country, and even since 1930 individuals from other ethnic groups have ensured t h a t organized crime in America is not monopolized by men whose last names end in vowels. Why then the emphasis on Italians in crime if in fact so many non-Italians have also had pieces of the action? In my judgment the explanation lies partly in the word "mafia" and partly, in the cultural traditions
to organize disciplined groups of criminals that have had much success in obtaining their share of the illegitimate economic pie. The Mafia, a secret society of loosely federated crime groups, had become powerful throughout western Sicily by the late nineteenth century, or exactly the time masses of poor southern Italians and Sicilians began emigrating to the United States. There is little evidence that the Sicilian Mafia was ever transplanted directly to America. Most of the reputed mafia dons in this country were either born here or in Italy to rather poor and powerless parents who were indistinguishable from the mass of Italian immigrants. Their emergence in the underworld of American crime can best be e x p l a i n e d n o t by organizational skills acquired in Sicily, but by their own initiative and ambition finding a fertile environment for illegitimate activity provided by the American economy. But although the Sicilian Mafia never crossed the ocean, the media have nonetheless always been eager to welcome it to our shores. The word "mafia" is just the right size for newspaper headlines, and the foreign image it conveys has always permitted Americans to fantasize that organized crime is as un-American as chocolate canoli. As long as prostitution, the n u m b e r s racket, loan-sharking, etc. are blamed on the Mafia, Americans can go to bed at night self-righteous in their belief that it is those damned foreigners who are responsible for these nasty deeds. But even the most chauvinist Italian-American cannot ignore the fact that some of his soul brothers are
organized crime. In fact, it seems indisputable that Italian gangsters have been quite successful in making a killing (literally and figuratively) in crime over a longer period of time than individuals from other ethnic groups. A critical element in this phenomenon is that Italian culture, or more specifically southern Italian c u l t u r e , uniquely equips properly socialized Italians for the rugged life of organized crime. Unquestioning respect and blind trust in their superiors are two core elements of southern Italian culture, and the survival over time of crime "families" in the United States absolutely depends on these characteristics. After all, although syndicated crime is no less a business than IBM, it is nonetheless an illegitimate business that cannot rely on courts or laws to resolve d i s p u t e s . Thus conflict avoidance is crucial so that undue publicity is not focused on organized crime. Following the conclusion of the bloody Castellemarese war in New York in 1931, Italian crime groups were able to live in r e l a t i v e l y p e a c e f u l c o e x i s t e n c e until the mid-1950's. Respect in their leaders kept Italian gangsters from each other's throats during this period. To be sure, people were killed and new territories claimed, but always with a minimum of conflict since the various dons had enough respect for each other, and their "soldiers" in them, to ma-ke all decisions seem legitimate. Money was made and the American public remained virtually unaware of what was happening. B u t American culture finally caught up with the Italian gangster. With all that money, the Italian criminal
became an American criminal. As the years passed, the southern Italian concept of respect and silence gave way to the American acquisitive impulse and cravings for r e c o g n i t i o n . Respect for authority was replaced with typical American disdain for the guy on top. Dons began fighting once again with each other (e.g., Genovese with C o s t e l l o , Bonanno with Magaddino) and, horror of horrors, soldiers with their dons (e.g., the Gallo brothers with Profaci). Discipline eroded and non-entities like Joe Valachi began talking. An era was passing. The wide-open American economy had given birth to the Italian gangster, and that same economy coupled with its attendant cultural assumptions would result, it appeared, in his demise. In recent years we have seen Joe Colombo on television with Dick Cavett, the Bonanno family have Gay Talese write their memoirs, Joey Gallo plan his autobiography, and Frank Costello intend to dictate his life's story. No Italian gangster of the old school could possibly do such profane things, but an American gangster would. Only Americans trust blindly in publicity as a solution to a problem, and only American gangsters would be pragmatic enough to perceive there is more money these days in publishing than in the rackets. Of course, as in any cultural

Indians Break Bonds at Wounded Knee
WOUNDED KNEE, S.D. (LNS) - Three and a half weeks ago several hundred Indians seized the trading post and the church in the town of Wounded Knee, South Dakota. And they remain there still. Outside, behind roadblocks surrounding the town, sit federal marshalls, FBI agents and government officials who are slowly being replaced by Bureau of Indian Affairs Indian police, in a move closely resembling Vietnamization. Every night there is shooting exchanged and the hills around Wounded Knee are lit up as government forces set fires, destroying grazing land. So far three Indians and one FBI agent have been shot. Federal officials are tightening access to the town. Reporters are only allowed in during the day time. Even the World Council of Churches people, who are allowed in with medical supplies, cannot bring food. Any food that does come in must be sneaked around road blocks, a dangerous 8-12 mile hike.
we set up a civil rights group to demand our civil rights. We had tried everything else." OSCRO has had as many as 900 people at their meetings. "AIM was asked to come in here after we got tired of hitting a stone wall," said Vein Long, co-chairman of OSCRO. Since Oglala Sioux and AIM members took Wounded Knee, there has been support for the takeover all over the reservation. A case in point is Porcupine. Since the beginning of the takeover, Indians from all over the country have been streaming in to join in the support of Wounded Knee. Many of them, however, have been unable to get in, and have been camping out in other parts of the reservation. So the Porcupine community voted unanimously to allow the Indians who had come from all over the country to stay at the Porcupine Community Center. But as with the takeover in general, the media^pointed to outside agitators and claimed that "a small band of AIM members and young whites" took the center. After a couple of days, Federal agents, claiming that the occupants took the building by force, surrounded the center and forced the occupants to leave after getting their names and addresses. Some of them were arrested. On Sunday, March 18, the Oglala Sioux acted again. Fourteen of the 18 tribal chiefs of the Pine Ridge Reservation (most of them old) made a declaration of independence and declared the area taken at Wounded Knee the Independent Oglala Sioux Nationa. Despite what the establishment media might say, "it was a shock to AIM" said one observer. Like the site at which they chose to dramatize their demands Wounded Knee — the declaration of sovereignty is also deeply bound in history. The Oglala Sioux are declaring the independence that they lost in 1924 under the Indian Reorganization Act. Up to that time, Indians were treated as a separate people whose relations with the U.S. was governed by treaties. "In 1924," said Carter Camp of AIM, "they took away our treaty rights and started dealing with us as wards of the government. They held that we were incompetent to handle our own affairs and that the BIA was competent to handle our affairs. So since 1924, we've been dealing strictly with the BIA." Continued on pg. 8
The government's negotiating position has hardened over time. According to their most recent proposal, seven "leaders" of the takeover — including Russell Means, Dennis Banks, Clyde Bellecourt, Carter Camp — all of the American Indian Movement (AIM); and Pedro Bissonette of the Oglala Sioux Civil Rights Organization (OSCRO) will be given safe passage to Sioux Falls, S.D.

Continued from pg. 7 Indians Break Bonds One thing that's hard to remember is that almost all of the land occupied by non-Indians today was taken from Native Americans at some point in history. "They made us many promises," said Red Cloud, "more than I can remember, but they never kept but one; they promised to take our land, and they took it." "By taking the action of declaring ourselves an independent nation," said Carter Camp, "we feel we've gone back to our rights as Indian people under the 1868 treaty . . . This treaty guaranteed that this area and the vast area around here, west of the Mississippi, would be in control of the Sioux people 'as long as the grass was growing and the water flowing'. Both of these things are still happening. These treaties were to be never broken without a two thirds vote of the Indian males on the reservation." By 1876, however, the government, decided that it wanted to get at the gold in the Black Hills which was part of the territory controlled by the Sioux. So through pure relentless military force and forced starvation, tribal chiefs were pressured to sign and those who wouldn't sign were driven off. Now that the people at Wounded Knee have declared themselves an independent nation they are starting to put it into practice. Three hundred-forty-nine people (including Oglalas, other Indians, Chicanos and a few whites and blacks have been sworn in as citizens of the New Oglala Sioux Nation. There are classes in everything from the use of first aid to use of weaponry. Fourteen new rooms have been erected and 100 bunks built. An underground warehouse for food and arms has been devised. Residents of Wounded Knee have had their homes repaired. Cows have been slaughtered for food, their hides tanned and made into blankets and gloves. "The Oglala Sioux people and AIM have here what everyone of the various races dream of having," said Carter Camp. "We have a land base and we have a government here. We have the support of a mass of people — the 12,000 people on the Pine Ridge Reservation are almost totally supporting what we're doing here." But outside the tiny community of Wounded Knee sit federal marshalls, BIA police, FBI and Department of Justice and Interior officials armed with M-16s (the same automatic weapon they use in Indochina.) Government officials sound remarkably like Nixon on their statements: "Let us make things perfectly clear . . . there never was any amnesty, and there never will be any amnesty . . . the position we have taken does not represent any departure from the attitude of resonableness we have maintained . . . even in the face of terrorism . . . The position taken by the leaders at Wounded Knee amounts to nothing more than intolerable blackmail." "I call it blackmail when our children are forced to attend boarding schools away from home nine months a year," said Russell Means of AIM, when the police jail the drunks but not the the bootleggers, when we are forced to deal with white businessmen who dominate our towns, when a tribal chief can hire goon squads with Federal funds, when the government holds our land in trust. They offer us two choices — jail or death and to hell with our demands. That's blackmail." The government sits and waits. Secretary of Interior Rogers C. B. Morton describes the Indians occupying Wounded Knee: "Some are renegades, some youthful adventurers, some have criminal records." Said one Indian at Wounded Knee, "We must be like a mosquito on the side of a buffalo."
The government obviously feels it has time on its side. Maintaining its road blocks with heavy guns, trying to keep food out, and restricting the press as much as possible, it is hoping to wear down the Indians. They figure that if enough Indians get demoralized, their numbers will dwindle and they'll be able to take the community with very few observers around to watch the attack.

It has long been apparent that change and reform is necessary in the New Jersey prison system, if indeed prisons are ever to become an effective vehicle against crime and disorder. For over fifteen months the men at Rahway State Prison have been hearing promise after promise from the Governor, the legislature and the Department of Institutions and Agencies in regard to a list of negotiated grievances which were made public after the Thanksgiving Day Riot of 1971. Not one of the negotiated agreements has been put into effect, the primary one being with the Parole Board, who continues to make a farce out of Parole eligibility. During this fifteen months the elected Committee with Grievances has been dissolved by the administration and replaced with an Inmate Council, whose function is simply to bring to light those complaints and grievances which can be changed within the prison. Its members have bent over backwards to keep the grumblings and disillusionments of inmates from breaking into a rash of violent actions. In early January, however, the dissatisfaction with the lack of action being taken by t h e G o v e r n o r a n d the Legislature reached epidemic proportions and in desperation
the Inmate Council found itself forced to coagulate the violent grumblings into a "Peaceful Work Stoppage," as a measure of e x p r e s s i n g i n m a t e displeasure. For ten days this action was ignored - while the men who exercised "their right not to w o r k " found themselves l o c k e d in t h e i r c e l l s twenty-four hours a day. Pressure was applied in the form of cell searches, and hastily constructed sandwiches at mealtime concocted out of State issue peanut butter. Those who worked were rewarded in the form of hot cooked meals, showers, clean clothing, television and movies. Strikebreakers were imported

from Trenton State Prison, being classified for jobs before they unloaded their duffle bags. These conditions prevailed throughout the ten day period, while the news media were bringing forth the militant actions of Indians in South Dakota and of the Black September Commando Group suggesting that only those actions that bring violence and blood are worthy of attention. The "Peaceful efforts" at Rahway State Prison have

fallen, due to threats (by Acting Superintendent Donald C. Thorns) that a notation would be put in the files of every man that participated for the Parole Board to see, and because of the degrading treatment and harassment by the Officials at this institution. It is at this time that we the Inmate Council of Rahway State Prison disclaim any responsibility for actions that m i g h t occur during the f o r t h c o m i n g weeks and months. We do not intend to be used as pawns by the administration for the purpose of quelling militant or violent action. Our function will be to air inmate grievances to the administration - and that's all. Is there any other way for the Inmates of Rahway State Prison to exercise their rights in an effort to express their Grievances to the Governing body of the State of New Jersey? They have wrote letters s e e k i n g b e t t e r Medical T r e a t m e n t and to have effective changes made in the "Ghetto of Four Wing" and all has been to no avail thus far.

We are concerned individuals desiring to strengthen world unity through the politics and dynamics of human rights. It seems that we all have a tendency to forget that we all share a common bond, so basic, yet so dynamic, Life." With all of man's advancements: the development of universal religion, scientific enlightenment, and the interchange of philosophical thought, wherever men meet to discuss avenues of cooperation and mutual agreement, material considerations take precedent over a regard for the human spirit. In a letter I received recently from former United States Senator, Joseph S. Clark, also former president of the World Federalists in the United States he stated: "Human rights appear to be in eclipse not only in the U.S. but all over the world. We appear to be losing the battle for a pure environment. Life in this planet is in real danger as you say, but Mr. Nixon doesn't seem to care. The Stockholm conference on the human environment was of course a modified success. Are you ware that it called for the elimination of all nuclear weapons?" I asked him why many students that I talk to fail to see the relevancy of the organization. He replied saying that he well understood the reasons, thinking the World Federalist movement to be a generation or two ahead of its time. We live in such a diverse and strongly unified country because someone took the initiative with others in a desire to be free. Now people are taking the initiative to free the mind in open consideration of working together on planet Earth in hope that someday man will work together in peace. Is it so hard to visualize and to feel life when each one of us is part of everthing around us. Our planet is faced with the ecological imperative: that man must live within the framework of all life or die. The environmental crisis will hasten the birth of a world community which will also, of necessity, be a Community of Life. Planetary Citizen is a real concept, the idea is growing, how far depends on the people who decide to promote and encourage others. The Planetary Citizen Registry Campaign started in August of 1972 with a full page print of the human manifesto with endorsements from leaders of countries, artists, explorers, humanitarians, Nobel Laureates, in the New York Times. Norman Cousins, the honorable president of the organization in the U.S., also printed the Human Manifesto in his magazine, "World". In New Jersey the cities of Princeton, Livingston, and Wayne have issued mundialization proclamations, which entails stating themselves to be part of the world community. At William Paterson College in Wayne, New Jersey peace activist Kevin Marion has succeeded in having a mundialization proclamation issued by the student body as well as invoking the development of course studies.in Peace-Science at Wayne College. Mr. Marion's courses and his resolution making William Paterson College a world campus (mundialization) have attracted support and inquiries from legislators, educators and world peace groups in this country and Canada. I am interested in finding students who wish to promote a like alternative study as well as working with other Planetary Citizens and who desire more information. This is a limited article due to time and my lack of journalistic style, but anyone wishing to sit down and talk about it, please contact me. Warm regards, Theodore P. Gomez World Federalist Representative Rutgers Student

Dear Editor, Who writes those record reviews? Every week I see reviews and more reviews of records and I wonder who is in charge? I noticed that the entertainment editor - Alex something-or-other has lost his job. How come they always write good reviews? I have yet to see a review of a bad record in Argo. John Ford Editor's Note: Dear John, Alex and his reviewers used to receive records for free from companies for review in Argo. They never criticize anything. Would you bite the hand that feeds you? We are currently searching for a replacement for Alex, who rarely comes to the office

PHASE II ILLS
Phase II is currently experiencing problems with the heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems. The following is a memo from the Office of Campus Planning and Development concerning this problem. We are still waiting on delivery of certain mechanical components that are necessary for operating the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems on a fully automatic basis. To date, we have been operating the heating cycle on a temporary basis, and have not been able to operate the ventilating and/or air-conditioning cycles without the missing components. The suppliers and manufacturers of the missing components have repeatedly assured us that the items needed for rendering the HVAC systems fully operational would be delivered momentarily. However, on March 22, 1973, we were informed that despite earlier commitments, one of the components required is not readily available at this time. This particular component, a potentiometer, will not be available for at least another month, and directly affects the capability of the HVAC units to operate on the air-conditioning cycle. Furthermore, without the potentiometer(s), it will be impossible to balance out the HVAC units to the point where they will operate automatically. Despite the fact that we are still missing the above mentioned mechanical components, we will attempt to "jerry-rig" the HVAC units so that the ventilating cycle can be operated on a manual basis. This particular action should lend some relief to the rather intolerable conditions which currently exist in the Phase II building complex. We would, however, like to stress the fact that on extremely warm days (70 degrees F+) the building will undoubtedly be uncomfortable until the HVAC have been properly balanced out. Every possible effort is being made to immprove upon the delivery and installation of the missing potentiometers so that the HVAC systems can be balanced out before the weather turns warmer. We appreciate your patience to date and would like to ask that you bear with us a bit longer.

The Camden 28
On August 22, 1971, 21 p e o p l e were arrested in Camden, New Jersey for conspiracy and draft file destruction. Within a few days, 7 more people were arrested. On February 5th, the trial of the Camden 28 finally came to c o u r t . The arrests were p r e c i p i t a t e d by an FBI informer, Robert Hardy, who now intends to appear as a witness for the defendants. Hardy has submitted an affidavit that revealed that, although the arrest could have come before the files were actually destroyed, the FBI waited and watched it happen for three hours on orders from someone in the Western White House. Only 17 of the original 28 are actually on trial now. All of them are either r e p r e s e n t i n g themselves without lawyers or with a lawyer as co-counsel. Since the opening day, a jury has been selected and opening statements have been m a d e . In their opening statements the defendants outlined their defense, the reasoning for the action, their motivation and beliefs. There was extensive description of the history and spirit of civil disobedience and the right and power that the jury has to nullify the law. This power enables the jurors to acquit defendants who have clearly broken a law because the law is unjust or conditions warranted the action. The prosecution has been presenting witnesses for the p a s t t w o weeks. Under No Admission
cross-examination witnesses have admitted that: the machinery used to surveil the 28 was extremely expensive; much of it was developed for use in Vietnam; that agents who worked on the case were also involved in establishing black informants in the black community. The trial is going on every day in the Federal Court in Camden. Court is in session from 10:00 to 4:30. The 28 and friends urge everyone to join them in court to show the government that the support is real and that the war is not over, that Thieu's prisons are filled with 200,000 political prisoners, that the OEO cutbacks will not go unnoticed. George Carlin did a benefit concert with Kenny Rankin for the 28 at the Cherry Hill Arena on March 29th. There is also a speakers' series planned at Glassboro. Daniel Berrigan is the first scheduled speaker â€” April 4th at 8:00. Others will include William Kunstler, Arthur Kinoy, Philip Berrigan and more. Join the struggle in Camden.

Colleges in Turmoil
During the last month several state colleges in New Jersey experienced strikes and votes of "No Confidence" as each college approached its d e a d l i n e for f acuity re-appointment. On March 9, the teachers of William Paterson State College voted "no confidence" in the present administration and Board of Trustees. Of 319 teachers who were polled, 221 voted "no confidence" in the Board. On March 19 the students went on strike. Paterson denied tenure to 19 professors. H a l f t h e students of Ramapo State College's 2100 population went on strike in protest of the non-reappointment of one professor, Michael Holden. The strike took place March 13 through 16.

PILOT RCA LSP-4730 Every once in a while a couple of musicians who you once respected reappear on the music scene after a relatively long absence. This is the case with a new band called Pilot. I t ' s m e m b e r s a r e all experienced musicians that have been playing for several years. The different members have varied backgrounds and playing experiences. Bruce Stephens handles the lead vocals and plays guitar. At one time he was a member of Mint Tattoo and Blue Cheer. Mick Waller plays drums and he was a member of Silver Metre, Jeff Beck's group and he plays on Rod Stewart's albums. Martin Q u i t t e n t o n plays acoustic guitar and Neville Whitehead p l a y s b a s s . T h e s e two musicians are well-known studio musicians. Completing Pilot's lineup is lead guitarist Leigh Stephens. He was the founder of Blue Cheer and Silver Metre. He also recorded two solo albums. With musicians like these, Pilot's debut album should be perfect. Unfortunately it isn't. Many of the songs are just average songs that rarely get off the ground. Bruce Stephens wrote all the songs and with only a few exceptions his writing hasn't improved since he was in Blue Cheer. I don't want to be too negative about this album, because there are several highpoints. Three of the songs,
"Miss Sandy," "Love is that Way," and "Penny Alone," are well written and are played well. Bruce Stephen's voice has improved and Leigh Stephens is still one of the most exciting guitarists around. I only hope that their second album will meet my expectation. I've admired these musicians for several years and I enjoy this album. I don't think that people who haven't heard these individual musicians before will like it. Their next album should be o n e to i m p r e s s ' almost everyone. Charles Lamey "You Can Do What You Want" etc., etc., Bonzo Bork Big Brother Records » SSC-1984 Big Brother Records last week announced the release of what they expect will be an all-time record-breaker of an album. The name of the album is "You Can Do What You Want and You Can Say What You Will, But When It Comes Down to the Nitty-Gritty, I'm Gonna Sit on Your Face." The performing artists are — you guessed it — Bonzo Bork and t h e Lake Fred Lackeys. Although there have been personnel changes since their last album ("If I've Told You Once, I've Told You Twice"), the real creativity of the Lackeys back-up still rests in the nimble hands of Bongo's original brain-bank: Schtick Bait, Chicky Tarantula and Schmo Puppet. What a band, folks, WHAT A BAND!
Once again, Bongo delves into the lower musical depths, c o n c e n t r a t i n g mainly on blues-oriented sounds. The first track on Side 1 is a new rendition of an old number; Bonzo admonishes the idealists of the world (in his inimitable back-slapping fashion) "You've Got to Suffer to Sing the Blues." This, however, is the only unoriginal piece. The remainder of Side 1 and all of Side 2 are filled with gut-level emotion of the 70's; the theme of the album is aptly summed up in the title track. Some of the other songs that really brought it all home were "You Scratch My Back, I'll Stab Y o u r s , " " A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Governor's Office," "Dick Nixon, Adolf, Benito and Me," "I Tried Confession and I Tried Zen Buddhism, But, Oh Lawdy, I Got Dem Sadism Blues A g a i n , " "I've Been Kicked in the Pants and I've Been Kicked in the Groin But the Worst Kick I Ever Got WasWhen I Put My Foot in my Mouth," and finally, "Light My Fire, But Don't Put Me Out." Admittedly, Bonzo's style is a radical one (many have c o m p a r e d him t o David Bowie), but obviously, the time is ripe for a message such as his. After all, we've made him the star that he is. So, for anyone who hasn't heard "Sit on Your Face" yet, I advise you to check it out. —Sebastian Tombs
MARYC. BROWN AND THE HOLLYWOOD SIGN Dory Previn United Artists Dory Previn gets an "E" for effort for her new LP, Mary C. Brown and the Hollywood Sign, but that's about all. All the songs on the album were written by Dory Previn and for the most p a r t , they are repetitious sounding.
Dory Previn does have a good voice but her voice doesn't go with the songs on the album. Perhaps she should stick to just writing the lyrics and let someone else compose the music. There are quite a few noticable names on the album. Such as, Peter Jameson on acoustic guitar, David Cohen on acoustic and electric guitars, Peggy Sandvig on piano and Earl Palmer on drums. Despite these and other artists on the album, Mary C. Brown and the Hollywood Sign seems to be lacking. I wouldn't recommend this album unless you are a devoted Dory Previn fan. Diane Nanni

The fledgling baseball coach is high in praise for his new t e a m . He s a i d , ' 'Gary M o n t e ro so, fo rmerly from Vineland High, played first base and pitched.

"Mike Carabrese," said Werkman, "is our starting catcher. He has a good arm, and is a consistent hitter, shooting line drives to all fields. The Philadelphia Phillies are interested in Mike," he noted.

" J i m ' s the best fly-catching outfielder on the team and makes the right play at all times," said Werkman. "We're working on his speed, whereas Steve is new to the outfield; he is a converted third baseman who will be used in the outfield because of his speed and hitting ability," he added. Rich Juliano was another player singled out by Werkman for praise. According to the coach, "Rich is a fine prospect w h o has played in top competition, both at Atlantic Community College and in the Atlantic County leagues, for the last four years. Last summer he batted .400." Bill Wells will be the starting pitcher for the Ospreys, and, said Werkman, "He's working the hardest now and will get the first start." "We expect to field a representative team and we hope to win as many games as possible," said Werkman. "We'll hustle and play as hard as possible to the last man," he promised. Home games for the coming baseball season will be played on the Galloway Township Athletic Fields.

THE NUMBERS RACKET - COMMON GAME AT STOCKTON The numbers game is a familiar tactic used by those who are in the dark about how to get a job. According to Sue Crooks, Director of Career Planning at the college, "unless you know the ground rules, it can be a waste of time, money, and energy, and more often than not it leads only to frustration - not a job offer." Unfortunately for students eyeing jobs outside the local area, it is often a necessary chore. "However," she said, "it has its benefits: it is a good lesson in organization, you will learn by trial and error what job approach works and what doesn't, and you will probably learn to know the yellow pages more thoroughly than an information operator." Said Crooks, "the occupational ignoramus plays the numbers game this way - prepares what he thinks is a resume, doesn't bother to proofread it, zeroxes fifty copies, writes a cover letter to "dear personnel manager," grabs a phone book, and mails himself away to forty or fifty companies." He will be lucky if he gets five replies that will be, at best, nebulous, more likely-negative. If you are going to play the numbers game, at least try to raise the odds. Here, Crooks provides some advice. Rule Number One. Learn how to write a decent resume. A piece of paper with a high school and college graduation date, plus a sentence or two about what you did last summer doesn't say much. Writing a resume is difficult if you have no work experience but you may have participated in a volunteer project or internship that can be easily highlighted. Several samples and suggestions for preparing resumes are available at the Career Planning Office. Better yet, Crooks said, "come to the workshop on April 16t.h at 3:30, Room F-105 to receive personal help." Rule Number Two. Use a cover letter to explain reasons why you are applying for a particular opening. According to Crooks, "you can take this opportunity to slant your experience and education to fit a more specific job objective. Unless," she said, "you want to be left hanging, make sure you use a closing in your cover letter that leaves the burden on YOU to follow up. For example, "I will take the liberty of calling your office to arrange an appointment next week" rather than "looking forward to hearing from you soon." Rule Number Three. Always write to a. "name." Never use the heading "dear personnel manager," "dear administrator coordinator," "dear director of executive development": using a title such as this simply invites a very impersonal response. Crooks advises that "if you don't know who to write to, call the company first to get a name." Rule Number Four. When looking for places to write to use more than just the phone book. Sources such as the College Placement Annual (available free in this office), Director of Social Service Agencies, and some of the newer directories of alternative organizations like the People's Yellow Pages and Directory of Free Universities, can be more helpful in giving you a select list from which to work. Rule Number Five. Organize your job search on paper. Keep copies of all letters you send out, a calendar to remind you when to return calls and when you have made appointments, and an index of the names and addresses that you have written to for easy reference. The best strategy is to send out all your letters within a one or two week period. It is easier to keep track of your progress. Each and every job application needs personal cultivation. In this time of a tight job market, Crooks suggests that students "concentrate only on writing to those companies that you can visit personally. Allow yourself at least several full days this spring that you can spend job interviewing." Finally, Crooks added, "get a number of things going at once. It is too discouraging to get negative replies trickling in one a week. At the other extreme it is limiting to only have one encouraging offer to follow up on. Allow yourself as many options as you can â€” unless you take some action now you won't have any." MEDICAL COLLEGE ADMISSIONS TEST PRACTICE EXAM The MCAT Practice Exam is scheduled to be given on April 19, at 9:30 a.m., Room F101. To take this test you must give your name in this office before the exam. For more information feel free to call 646-7575, ex. 331.
