ITHACA JOURNAL Friday, October 9, 1970 12 Man Sentenced Suspend Classes For One Year? Program Proposed WASHINGTON (AP) - State Public Service Commission chairman Joseph Swidler proposed Thursday a 13-point program he said would help alleviate the nation's fuel shortage. While urging stimulation of domestic exploration and development, he advocated limitations on one producing company dealing in more than one type of energy. Oil and gas would be considered one type. "Oil companies should not be permitted to take over the uranium or coal business, or vice versa," he said in a speech for a House subcommittee on small business. "Already 11 of the 25 largest oil companies have significant interests in coal, and the two largest owners of coal reserves are both oil companies," he said. "Our competitive free enterprise economy can function only if there is competition," he said. Other points of the program which might induce competition include phaseout of import quotas and prorationing, and a limitation of tax incentives on overseas petroleum production. "The petroleum industry as a whole controls approximately 25 per cent of the nation's coal production. Most of these companies also have' interest in oil shale. The oil companies further control over 40 per cent of the known uranium reserves." He did not identify any of the companies. Swidler's program also called for review of the nation's energy policies and more energy research. Cabbie Found Dead PHOENIX, N.Y.I AP)-A Syracuse taxidriver whose bloodstained cab was found empty Sept. 29 in the city was discovered dead Thursday in a remote area 15 miles north of Syracuse. State Police said a farmer found the body of Willie Joe Grant, 31, with several bullet wounds which they believed were caused by a .22 caliber gun. It was five miles off Route 49 in Oswego County, troopers said. Grant told his dispatcher at 7 p.m. Sept. 28 that he had a fare to Baldwinsville, about 10 miles north of Syracuse, police said. That was the last heard from him. "It is hard to say at this time if there was any connection between the location of Grant's body, when it was found, and his last known destination . . .," said BCI Investigator Lt. P.D. Ferry. Ferry said no motive has been established. He could not say if there were any leads in the case. An autopsy of Grant's body was ordered by the Oswego County district attorney. The results are due today, said Onondaga County Medical Examiner Martin Hilfinger. By BRUCE B. DETLEFSEN AP Education Writer ALBANY, N.Y. lAP) - The academic community has lost its sense of direction and should suspend all classes for a year of "self - critical examination," a faculty member in the State University system has told New York's study panel on campus unrest. Louis Lieberman, who teaches sociology at the SUNY campus here, made the blunt proposal during a day - long hearing Thursday that also included appeals for changes in the drug laws, a lower voting age and more contacts between students and lawmakers. Lieberman told the Temporary State Commission to Study the Causes of Campus Unrest that higher education has become by and large a period in which undergraduates listen to "boring professors," perform routine drills and memorize useless words. He summed up his excoriation of faculty members and administrators by maintaining that "undergraduate education is a fraud, with the exception perhaps of pre - professional training." "My suggestion for a way out is simple and meant to be serious," Lieberman told the commission. "Suspend all university classes for one year except in those divisions where this may be practically impossible. Let the students, faculty and administration devote a year to soul-searching and a self-critical examination of what the education of a human being should entail in the 1970s rather than the 1870s." The student viewpoint on campus turmoil was presented at the hearing by representatives from Albany State, Union College in Schenectady, Siena College in suburban Loudonville and Utica College. Walter A. Spencer, president of Union's Student Senate, was one of several students who proposed that a modification of the drug law in relation to marijuana would help reduce campus tensions. Spencer did not argue in favor of legalization of marijuana but said New York's legislature should trim the maximum penalty for the first conviction of possessing 25 grams or less of the drug to six months in prison and allow those convicted to accept rehabilitation in order to be freed of the onus of a criminal record. Spencer also urged that the legislature give second passage in the 1972 session to a proposed Have Pool Spruced Up SCHENECTADY, N.

Another of Spencer's proposals was for legislators to appear on campuses more often. Robert Iseman, the Albany State law student who, together with another student, brought the court challenge to the spending of SUNY student activity fees, also attended the hearing. Commission Chairman Charles D. Henderson, a Republican assemblyman from Hornell, questioned Iseman about the challenge, which was upheld by a State Supreme Court justice and resulted in the SUNY trustees requiring administrators to review appropriations at their respective campuses throughout the system. Iseman said he did not believe that there should be a mandatory fee. Instead, he added, student organizations should oper-r aie on a pay-as-you-go Dasis or have only a voluntary fee, such as dues, to support their activities. SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP (-Peter W. Clancy is to serve up to 12 years in prison for the fatal shooting of his financee, whose body was found March 3, 1968, at Clancy's in suburban James-ville. Clancy, 29, was sentenced Thursday by Onondaga County Court Judge Albert Orenstein on a charge of first-degree manslaughter in the death of Mrs. Jeanette Wood, 27, who Clancy was to marry. He had spent 30 months in jail before sentencing because of pre-trial hearings requested by defense attorneys and the district attorney's office. A charge of murder was reduced by the court on the recommendation of an assistant district attorney. Two psychiatrists said Clancy acted under extreme emotional pressure the day one bullet wagput into Mrs. Wood's temple with a handgun. Maple Syrup Crop Down ALBANY. N.Y. iAPi - New-York State's 1970 maple , syrup production was just five per cent below the 1969 figures despite heavy snows which kept some operators from tapping any trees but those beside road-wavs. The harvest of 332.000 gallons was more than the 1967 or 1968 feocco s list mn m wsmu it. totals and syrup production per tap was greater than in the past three years. 2,500 Alcoholics The Alcoholism Information Center estimates there are 2.500 persons suffering from alcoholism in Tompkins County.

Richard Max McCarthy, rebuffed by the state's highest court in attempts to gain a spot on the November ballot, has endorsed fellow Democrat Thomas P. Flaherty for his House scat. McCarthy, a congressman since 1965, told a news conference Thursday he would not try to appeal a decision Wednesday by the State Court of Appeals that voided his independent candidacy. The court ruled that McCarthy's "Conservation party" label was too similar to that of the established Conservative party and would tend to confuse voters. With Flaherty and Erie County's Democratic chairman at his side, McCarthy told reporters. "My attorneys considered an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, but the election draws near. Any delay would help the campaign of the Republican candidate (Jack F. Kemp)..." "I am going to support Tom Flaherty, whose approach to government is like my own. I believe he can win if those who share my goals and supported me in the past get behind him." McCarthy gave up the Democratic endorsement for a fourth term earlier this year to run, unsuccessfully, for the party's U.S. Senate nomination. Flaherty was named to replace him as the endorsed congressional candidate, and McCarthy re - entered the House race several weeks ago as an independent. The two have feuded since then but they said Thursday they had reconciled their differences.
