TWO MORE ARRESTED IN CONNECTION WITH '93 RAPE
- FOURTH SUSPECT NOT YET APPREHENDED by KRISTINA WELLS
Editor
Two more men were arrested in
connection with the gang rape of a
Marist student in September 1993.
To date, two former Marist students and one current student have
been arrested and charged with three
felony counts of rape in the first
degree which carries a maximum
sentence of 75 years in state prison.
Shane Conry, 19, and Kristian
Grizelj, 20, were arrested over the
course of the weekend and arraigned
Monday in Dutchess County Court.
Both men, who were represented
by separate counsel, pleaded "not
guilty" to the charges.
They are being held in the
Dutchess County jail. Judge George
Marlow has set bail at $25,000 cash
bail or $50,000 bond.
Former Marist student John Tasso
was arrested earlier on similar
charges at his home in Brooklyn,
N.Y. He was released from jail after
posting $25,000 bail. Tasso's arraignment is scheduled for next
Monday.
The three men were arrested as a
result of a year-long investigation
conducted by Town of Poughkeepsie detectives.
According to police reports, the
victim and the men were at an offcampus party and returned to cam-.
pus via cab. The victim began walking toward her dormitory from the
Chapel when one of the males
grabbed her and dragged her toward
the Lowell Thomas Communication
Center building where the
threeprocceded to take turns raping
her.
Marjorie Smith, senior assistant
District Attorney, said a fourth suspect, whom authorities have not
named, has not been apprehended.
The suspect allegedly aided in holding down the victim as the three men
raped her.
According to Smith, all three men
arrested were affiliated with the Tau
Epsilon Phi fraternity.
"My understanding is that they
are affiliated with Tau Epsilon Phi,
either as pledges or members," Smith
said.
Brett Minicri, president of Tau
Epsilon Phi, said the fraternity has
been not been kept informed of the
case's ongoings.
"It's a police investigation. We
are not told anything about it.They're
handling it. We're completely in the
dark," Minieri said.
Executive Director of Tau Epsilon Phi Nationals, Michael J. Brown,
SEAL OF APPROVAL
said the national headquarters was
informed of the investigation but said
he knew little about the arrests.
"We had heard of some sort of
investigation last week, but we have
not officially been notified ofjmy
arrests," Brown said.
According to Brown, the fraternity is looking into the motives of
its affiliates.
"To my knowledge, there has
been no inference this was a chapter
event, he said. "I am confident this
was not a chapter event. There have
been no allegations of this."
Smith said she would not comment on this aspect of the case.
According to an article in the
Nov. 1 issue of the Poughkeepsie
Journal, court documents state that
Conry and Grizelj were both questioned two days after the incident.
Both men conceded they took the
taxicab with, the woman, but said
they wenttheir separate ways when
they arrived on campus. Tasso's
statements to police have not been
made public.
Dr. Dennis J. Murray, college
president, also could not comment
on the continuing investigation or the
arrests Murray did say that the college is cooperating fully with the
District Attorney's Office and the
Town of Poughkeepsie Police.
Jeffery Graham, Conry's attorney, had no comment on the case or
his client. Attempts to reach Tasso's
counsel, Larkin and Axelrod in
Newburgh, N.Y., were unsuccessful.
Grizelj was represented by Ron
Landers, public defender.

Radio-TV-Filrri may break off from Cornm. Division
by MICHAEL J. LaCUGNA
Staff Writer
The division of Communication
and the Arts may be dividing into
several distinct departments as early
as the fall semester of 1995.
The move would create a separate department for the radio, television and film division and a mass
media division that consists of public relations, advertising and journalism.
Chairperson for Communication
and the Arts Augustine Nolan said
there was talk of breaking up the
division into separate departments.
"There are discussions underway
about reorganizing the division of
Communication and the Arts, especially in the communication area,"
said Nolan. "A proposal has been
made to separate the cornm area into
two distinct areas."
- ...
The Art and Fashion departments, although part of the Communication and the Arts division,
would not be included in the departmental reorganization.
Assistant professor of communications Douglas Cole said this restructuring is needed if the division
is to get anything done.
"When it comes to solving problems of curricula, nothinggets done,"
said Cole. "The reason not enough
gets done is that we will discuss
problems specific to radio, TV, and
film at a meeting that includes faculty members who don't have the
slightest of what we do and what
our problems are."
Cole also said, "By the same
token I'm in no position to really
understand the specific problems of
the journalism faculty, P.R. faculty,
etc." Some of the advantages of the
restructuring would includemore
foundation courses earlier on for students in specific majors, such as
radio, TV, and film.
Another benefit would be the instituting of a specific capping course
geared toward the major of, a student in" a department.
Currently, there are no capping
courses that deal exclusively with
radio, TV andfilm,journalism, public relations and advertising.
Cole said with the new structure
there would be a new sequencing of
classes.
"With the new structure, we
would have suggested sequencing of
classes so that students could study
material in a logical order and that
doesn't exist now," Cole said.
Cole said that the new formalized capping course would be an
asset to the students and it makes
more sense to have.
The capping course should be directly related to theconcentration of
the student," Cole said.
Nolan said that the restructuring
would take a distinct shape.
"The first area would be the
study of the mass media, which
would include radio, TV and film,"
Nolan said. "Currently there are 295
students enrolled as majors in this
area. The second area would be
dedicated to the study of other communication areas, including organizational communication and public
relations, advertising, journalism and
speech communication theory." .
There are currently 310 students
enrolled in the othercommunication
concentrations.
Under the new setup, the Communication and the Arts department
would no longer have a chairperson.
Instead, they would have a dean
of communication; the independent
departments would have a distinct,
rotating chairperson who would answer to the dean of the division.
Nolan said the new plan has merits, but also has some finite details
that have to be worked out before
the new plan can be implemented.
One problem for professors who
are qualified to teach in more than
one field of communication would
be crossing over from one department to another.

THE CIRCLE, NOVEMBER 3, 1994.
Travolta masters bathroom
by JUSTIN SEREMET.
Circle Film Critic
Ladies and gentlemen, no more
calls please. We have a winner.
'Quentin Tarantino is the undisputed champion, and has proven that
he is no fluke with his latest film,
"Pulp Fiction."
If you're in a daze right now, it
might be because you have failed to
see Tarantino's last film, the 1992
cult hit, "Reservoir Dogs."
If so, go out and rent it, and then
continue reading when you're done.
"Pulp Fiction" was last May's
winner at the Cannes Film Festival,
and if there's any justice in the free
world, you'llsee plenty of gold statues bearing its name next April.
To put it simply, "Pulp Fiction"
is three stories written,by Tarantino
about two hitmen, a couple that attempts to rob a. restaurant, and a
boxer's attempt to recover a lost
golden watch.
With the return of '70s fashions,
what better time to resurrect the
career of disco legend John Travolta,
who stars as hit man Vincent Vega
in this roller-coaster ride of drugs,
romance, blood, andmayhem.
The film begins with Amanda
Plummer arid Tim Roth ("Dogs "s
Mr. Orange) as a couple trying to
decide whether or not to rob the diner
they're eating at:
Then we have the two hitmen,
Vega and Jules Winnfield (a rousing
performance by Samuel L. Jackson),
who begin their portion of the story
talking about Amsterdam's version
of the Quarter Pounder, the Royale
with Cheese (it's the typical brilliant
Tarantino dialogue).
The two, dressed in "Dogs"-like
suits, must perform a hit, but Vega
reveals his latest dilemma to Jules
prior to the kill; he must "entertain"
their boss Marsellus's wife Mia
(Uma.Thurman) by taking her out
for a "night on" the town.
The rumor is that the last man
who took care of Mia ended up being thrown out a window for giving
her a foot massage.,,
What ensues is a hilarious conversation on the intimacy and. importance of giving foot massages.
The nightout on the town is fantastic, including a humorous dance
twist between Thurman and Travolta,
and a scene involving a largesyringe
that creates more chills than the "ear"
scene in "Dogs."
Travolta shines, even if he has
become a bit pudgier since his "Saturday Night Fever" days.
But we have to cut away from
the hitmen, as we switch to a story
involving boxer Butch Coolidge
(Bruce Willis,in his best role since
"Die Hard") who accepts cash from
Marcellus to throw his next fight,
but defies the crirhe boss, wins the
fight and leaves town.
After meeting his girlfriend
Fabicnne (Maria de Medeiros) in a
motel during his escape, Butch finds
out that Fabienne forgot to pack his
deceased fathers golden watch,
something he holds very dear to him.
Butch must go back to his apartment for it, and the events that
takeplace to get it are bizarre,
bloody, and nauseating:
But "Pulp Fiction" never lets up,
as we again go back to .Vincent and
Jules, who'have accidentally blown
exit in 'Pulp
the head off of a captive in the back
seat of their car and must find a way
to clean up the gory mess.
Enter Wolf (Harvey Keitel), a
mob man who dashes away from his
cocktail party at 8 a.m. in his tux to
help out the boys in mopping up the
red stuff.
; Look for Tarantino to appear in
this scene as a buddy of Jules who
simply wants the dirtied-up gangsters
out of his house before his wife
comes home.
This is where Tarantino lets the
laughs run wild, although if you've
seen "Dogs" already, you may pick
up ori more of his brand of black
humor throughout the movie.
What is so amazing about "Pulp
Fiction" is the way Tarantino humanizes, these otherwise disgusting
characters through conversation;
they all talk like you and I, with
maybe- a few more vulgarities.
Then again, Tarantino has been
called "The Shakespeare of the FourLetter Word."
By the end of "Pulp Fiction,"
Tarantino examines his most interesting character, Jules; a man who
has decided that he wants no more
of the killing after he experiences a
"moment of clarity."
If there's a standout in this film,
by LARRY BOADA
• Assistant Editor
it's got to.be Jackson, whose character comes full circle. , „
,..,
Jackson's-Jules will dazzle you
with the jive and foul-mouthed talk
that he spews, but captivates as well;
he draws you in.
It's Tarantino's way, of putting
down the violence that looms over
all the characters of the film and
pointing out one of them that sees
through itall.
"Pulp Fiction" is exactly why
movies can be so fun.
But like therecent "Natural Born
Killers," this is not a movie for all;
you may see a few people in the
aisles in front getting upto leave.
Some will not be able to get past
the violence itself, which a few
people have already called excessive
and overdone.
Any way you cut it, "Pulp Fiction" really packs quite a wallop.
It's a doozy.

. The rumors and misconceptions
about the seal in the entranceway to
Donnelly Hall can be stopped.
I t is not a replacement for the
school mascoty but rather represents
the beginning of professional artwork
being displayed and enjoyed on campus.
Steven and Estelle Dobo, native
Poughkeepsie residents, recently
donated the sculpture to Marist so
that "it could be appreciated and
enjoyed," said Richard Lewis, coordinator of studio art and design.
The sculpture now resides in
Donnelly after having just come back
from being restored.

marble, had become dull and dirty

after being displayed for over 50
years.
"This piece was actually in their
home. It was like an old friend of
theirs; people would pat it on the
head when they visited the Dobo's,"
Lewis said.
The seal was sculpted by Furio
Piccirilli, one of five brothers who
came to America from Italy in 1888.
Piccirilli also designed the sculptural decoration of the Parliament
House in Winnipeg, Canada, in 1920.
The work that Marist College has
is one of a three part series that was
done by Piccirilli.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art
has a version in its collection, and
there is another that resides in
Brookgreen Gardens.
The seal contains many details
to enhance the realism of the animal
in nature.
."If you run your hand down the
back, you can actually feel the vertebrae in its spine," said Shaileen
Kopec, vice president of the office
for college advancement.
"What's remarkable is that it
happens to go very well with the
black slate that is already in there,"
Lewis said. "They work perfectly
together."
The decision to put it in the entrance to Donnelly Hall was made
after considering the factors involved.
"With sculpture, you want it to
be in a place where it can be seen,"
Lewis said, "but also not in the way
of traffic where it will be damaged."

Longer nights signal time for the rocking chair blues
by TOM BECKER
Circle Music Critic
Now that the weather is changing, the days becoming a bit cooler,
the nights a bit longer, and the
memories of summer being replaced
with the activities of winter, I feel it
is time to talk about the blues.
Sometimes it is just necessary to
sit in a rocking chair, choice of drink
in one's hand, whether it's eight
ounces or 40, and nod your head to
some straight-cut, god-fearing blues.
One blues CD-which is perfect
for such an occasion comes from one
of the masters himself, B.B. King.
Although there are many collections of King's music, the one I find
most pleasing is appropriately titled
"Why I Sing The Blues," on MCA
records.
The collection reaches way back
into King's past with tracks like
- "Hummingbird" and "Sweet Sixteen," which evoke the pure, unadulterated 'amen' feel of the classic
blues.
One of the reasons this collection is so special, besides the high
quality of the production, is the presence of talented entertainers with
King and the several live tracks.
One such entertainer to appear is
the legendary ivory-stroking Carole
King.

Helmet-Quicksand prepare to crash into The Chance
by TOM BECKER
Circle Music Critic
November 9 promises to be a
night of soaked shirts, sore limbs and
"ringing ears.
In other words, that Wednesday,
the crew cut bruisers of Helrriet will
come to town with the razor-edged
assault of Quicksand and Orange 9
MM.
The event promises to be one of
the more notable shows to make its
way into the small, cozy confines of
The Chance Theatre, 6 Crannel St.,
Poughkeepsie.
Helmet is headlining the show after releasing their third album,
"Betty," back in June.
"Betty" presents its listener with
a slightly new flavor for the band.
There is. much more to this disc
than the stone crushing, runaway
groove of "Milquetoast," which has
found its way onto many a radio
playlist.
Sounds on the disc vary from the
blues grooving "Street Crab" to the
winding, cascading bass riffs on "Biscuits For Smut."
However, Helmet has not altogether abandoned their trademark
sounds for the new highly produced
and processed ones.
"Vaccination" and "Tic" both exhibit the guitar jabbing and musical
hesitations that mark a Helmet song.
Having had the opportunity to
view Helmet in the flesh, I am not

{Construction on Route 9 will be causing congestion for four additional months. The project
is scheduled to be completed by August 1995.
Route 9 disarray bothering some
by DARYL RICHARD
Staff Writer
The completion of widening
Route 9 has suffered a four month
delay.
Problems with rebuilding a bridge
over Conrail tracks near Marist
College's south entrance has delayed
finishing the construction until August 1995.
Victor Sepe, a consulting.engineer with Shah Associates, which
oversees the project for the state Department of Transportation, said
there were delays in getting approval
from Conrail for the new bridge
design, pushing back the completion
date. _.
" T h e bridge is a critical part of
the project," he said. About onethird of the reconstruction is finished
and Sepe said he expects the bridge
to be done by next spring.
. He added that the approaching
winter conditions will not slow work
on the bridge. "There's a possibility
that even with winter temperatures,
we can continue work on the bridge.
We will work until we can't work
anymore."
Several other projects remain
before Route 9 will be completed.
Workers are currently placing
water mains, some of which will feed
Marist, preparing for paving, working on drainage and installing new
lighting.
Sepe said the lighting has become
a priority because Marist officials
have expressed concern with the lack
of lights along Route 9 near
thecollege.
"There have been complaints
about the current status of lighting
coming from people who park by
Route 9," director of Physical Plant
Tom Daly said.
The construction has also affected
the ride to school for Marist commuters. "1 think it's awful and potentially dangerous,"said sophomore
Berriadette Goebel. Goebel lives in
Wappingers Falls but leaves at least
a half-hour before class because of
increased traffic.
Freshman Linda Harding,'a commuter from Kingston, expressed
similar displeasure with the construction. "It's a pain," she said, "It gets
on everybody's nerves. One time, I
was a half-hour late to class because
I sat in traffic for 20 minutes."
The construction has not affected
everyone though.
Freshman Joe Divincenzo, who
commutes from Newburgh, has not
been delayed by therpad work. "It's
not that much of a hold up. I haven't
needed any extra time, but I wish it
wasn't there of course."
When completed, the new highway will give the Marist campus
borderingRoute 9 a facelift. "It's
really going to enhance the entrance
and the area fronting Marist College," Sepe said.
The new four-lane divided highway will have a median filled with
bushes and plants and blue stone
sidewalks bordered with red brick
and decorative lighting.
"Some of the materials in the
project are being used to enhance
the historic district," Marist College
Vice President Mark Sullivan said.
Included in the historic district
from Marist are Greystone, the Gate
House and St. Peter's.
Marist officials worked closely
with project engineers from the start
to help design a highway that would
best enhance the area.
"There's a lot of history on the
Marist campus, so this will dress the
area up," Sepe said.
At the college's south entrance
workers are installing a traffic signal that will form a T-intersection,
making the traffic flow safer.
Last year, traffic exiting from the
south entrance had a stop sign and
was
turn.
UPDATE
Thu Marist College Office of
Safety and Security last week released a memo soliciting student's
help in preventing a potentially dangerous practice - moving traffic directional barrels along the Rout-.' 9
construction.
"This results in traffic being directed into areas not intended for
vehicles, a potentially dangerous
situation that could result in serious
accidents." the memo, written by
Director of Safety and Security Joseph Leary, said.
Leary quickly pointed out in the
memo that "there are no reports that
this vandalism is being committed
by anyone connected with the college."
The reasoning behind sending the
memo to students is that college students are up later than most people
in the community, putting them in a
better position to witness such actions.
"The lifestyle of college students,
because they are up later, puts them
in more of a position to see someone," Vice President of Student Affairs Gerald Cox said. He added that
the purpose of the memo was not to
blame students but rather increase
surveillance.
Victor Scpc, a consulting -ngineer with Shah Associates, * hich
oversees the Route 9 project Jr the
state DOT, said he has hea i complaints from the Shcriif s department
regarding people moving barrels.
He too said there have not been
any Marist students connected with
thcproblcm but explained that college students arc in the position
torcccive the blame.
"Being a college area, students
will catch the blame for it
whether they've done it or not," Sepe
said.

MaristRadio havingGommunicatiori eott^Miii
by JUSTIN SEREMET
Senior Editor
It's not easy being one tenth of a
watt.
But Marist College Radio, like
MCTV, is simply trying to do the
best with what they've got.
Since last year's change of
elected positions, the new people in
charge at WMCR are looking to
loosen things up a bit, but not so
much that people don't take them
seriously.
And this means not getting bent
out of shape about lack of an FCC
license.
"We just want to get the name
around," said senior Neil Kelly, the
general manager of WMCR, who
also runs his show "Off the Beaten
Path." "Most of us realize that a lot
of people don't even know that this
school has a radio station. I have to
say, 'yeah, you know that closet you
guys walk past in Champagnat?
That's us.'"
For WMCR, it doesn't really help
seeing Vassar College recently having their radio station's wattage
boosted up to 15,000 watts.,
,
"Yeah, it kind of bothers me,"
Kelly said. "But if we were FCC
licensed, a lot of DJs wouldn't like
what comes with it. I, for one,
wouldn't be too thrilled with having
the Christmas shift, or the summer
one for that matter."
Like MCTV, WMCR wishes it
had been more included in some of
the construction that has gone up
over the summer.
"It's frustrating to see Vision 94
and that communications has no part
of it," Kelly said. "It doesn't really
make a whole lot of sense.
"I think there's a wall of miscommunication between activities
and clubs. It's not anyone's fault.
But they (activities) have to realize
that a lot of the money that is spent
is necessary."
At the same time, some members have questions as to how involved the communications department is with the ongoings of
WMCR.
"You'd think that.it would be a
nursing relationship between us and
communications," said junior
Desmond Ebanks, program director
at WMCR. "I don't think anyone is
really looking out for MCR. It's
entirely a student-run station."
Regardless of activities or communications, WMCR is trying some
newpromotions to get the campus
more involved, as well as getting
some more attention.
Kelly has worked with The
Circle to have WMCR's Top 20
chart printed in issues and has set
up a conference list on the mainframe that can be used for suggestions by typing "Conf wmcr" at the
main menu.
"We're having a lot more sponsored events," Ebanks said. "We're
doing stuff with The Chance and
we're working on doing a
Valentine's Day dance, which we've
never done before. The focus is less
on the FCC problem. We all know
it's not gonna happen while we're
here."
WMCR has music directors Beth
Dooley and Scott Graves with record
companies in the station's attempt
to mix things up a bit.
"We even almost had a country
show," Ebanks said. "But that
neverreally materialized."
However, Ebanks doesn't want
the fun getting in the way too much.
"It's a littie too loose right now,
but at the same time I don't really
want to restrict them."
Kelly said that one of the
station's goals is to have a wide
variety of shows for students with
humor shows, two sports shows, a
metal show and the regular rotational
shows.
But Kelly also said that they'd
like to get a little further away from
overplayed MTV sludge and. have
some more independent,music.
"What we'd really like fb do is'
to say 'hey, here's some stuff that
you'll be hearing on MTV a few*
weeks from now," he said. ,
And Kelly does not believe that
no one is listening.
"There are still a lot; of listeners," he said. "A lot of them aren't
participating in calling up, but
they're there. We've also gotten a
few comments from listeners oh
certain DJs."
As for the station's reception,
Kelly says that there's good days and
bad days. "I know, that some buildings are blocking the, reception," he
said. "But it seems to be coming in
for the most part on campus."
"I think the rotation's been a lot
more appealing," said senior Dave
Whitehead of Ardsley, NY, the
station's sports director.

Campus violence a concern
by JEANINNE AVILES
Staff Writer
According to Marist Security,
violence on campus is not as prevalent this year as it has been in past
years, security.
"I don't even like to say that because it's like waving a red flag at
a bull. Everything's going great and
then the roof caves in," said Joseph
Leary, director of safety and security.
In a city like Poughkeepsie
where you have approximately
22,000 people, not having any fights
is unusual, according to Leary.
He said there has only been one

better than last year," Brown said.
Although the students co-exist,
there is still occasion for arguments,
Leary said.
"I think generally the students
get along pretty well together, but
the setup is there for some temperament, which might result in some
minor assaults, but fortunately we
haven't had any problems in that
area," Leary said.
When fighting does occur, it is
. usually because there is alcohol involved, Leary said.
Leary explained that in his experiences in both security andlaw

case of violence on campus this

"This semester, we've had one
report of assault. It was a minor

assistant in Gartland, said compared
to last year there has been a lot less

"I think the violence has gone

using foul language is the one that's
losing the argument," Leary said.
Leary said the people who "start
swinging or swearing" are usually
the people who are losing the fight
verbally.
When situation like this occurs,
security has to go through certain
procedures in order to handle the
situation correctly, Leary said.
A patrol is assigned to a certain
area of campus, and when security
receives information about a fight
or some other violent act, the patrol
must respond.
The people involved are separated if the altercation isstill in
progress by the time security arrives.
All individuals involved are
questioned regarding their version
of what happened.
"Almost all the time, one person
says it happened this way and the
other person says it happened exactly at 180 degrees the other way.
So you spend a lot of time trying to
get other disinterested witnesses to
say what happened," Leary said.
According to Leary, everyone is
given the opportunity to give a statement and whatever information security obtains is handed over to
Student Affairs for disciplinary action.
All of this creates fights that are
inconsequential.
When an assault occurs, the investigation is written up by the investigating officers.

think objectively then that's when
it starts. The first man or woman to

about it," Leary said.
The shooting has once again
raised the question of safety off campus.
The victim is an off-campus resident who had heen out walking to

Whitworth, who also lives off
campus, said the problem is in the
neighborhoods students choose to
reside.
"There is not enough good
houses available to college students,"
Whitworth said.
Whitworth said students tend to
move into the- cheaper apartments
that are in the worst areas.
Leary said the problem lies in
cheap rents in some of the worst

"It all depends on where you live

"Many of our studenLs choose to

THE CIRCLE, NOVEMBERS, 1994
Marist community reacts to latest Iraqi military move
bySUSANNE YANUSZ
Staff Writer
Nearly four years after the Persian Gulf War, Saddam Hussein resurfaced, making newspaper headlines once again.
On Oct.6, Hussein ordered some
of his best troops to move toward
the Kuwaiti border again.
The American military rebuffed
the troops and perhaps reminded the
world of the sanctions imposed on
Iraq by the United Nations.
Most recently, Kuwait said they
will allow the United States to station a squadron of warplanes in their
country in order to curb Iraqi military power.
There are currently almost 9,000
American ground troops in Kuwait
and Saudi Arabia, and it is expected
that 13,000 troops will be stationed
there before starting to return in December.
Some people feel the reason
Hussein sent troops to Kuwait's
border is because of the current economic hardships it's facing.
Louis Zuccarello, professor of
Political Science, feels Hussein's
actions were more of an attention
getter than a threat to invade.
"Saddam Hussein's move was
largely motivated to get the world's
attention to his belief the sanctions
should be relieved," Zuccarello said.
Zuccarello feels the suffering of
the Iraqi people is real and the world
community has to do something
about it.
Richard Atkins, professor of hisT
tory, feels the United States is once
again involved because of American
interests and the county's dependency on oil imports.
"We don't see how we use our
energy and we make ourselves vulnerable," Atkins said. "It is our own
fault we are susceptible to Hussein."
According to Atkins, Americans
are short sided and unwilling to look
a half hour into the future, saying it
is not necessary to use all the energy we do and it might take a very
serious energy crisis to awaken us.
"Americans like to think the eleventh commandment should be 'thou
shall have cheap energy,'" Atkins
said.
Kevin Smith, a senior political
science major from Ballston Spa,
NY, agrees oil is strictly behind the
United States intervention in the
Middle East.
"The United States has made it
its job in the Middle East to protect
our oil interests. If it is such a humanitarian thing, it's funny how the
international community imposed an
embargo on Iraq whichis causing
their people to suffer," Smith said.
For the most part, many people
feel the U.S. should have intervened
and were happy with the way President Clinton handled the situation.
"It was good that we moved so
quick on it because a lot of people
were starting to think we would not
take action anymore, that we were
just going to make a lot of threats,"
said Marc Mele, a senior political
science major from Burlington,
Conn..
Mele feels Iraq is seeing what
they can get away with, what will
be tolerated, and that Hussein is
acting for the benefit for himself and
and his nation.
There are some who believe the
U.S. is morally, obligated to protect
Kuwait.
"It would be ideal if the Persian
Gulf states themselves could assume
that responsibility (to protect Kuwait), but it does not seem likely
because they don't have the military
or man power to go up against Iraq,"
said William Olson, professor of
history.
Olson says it is a complex situation involving balance of power in
the region and it might be interest-
ing to consider what role Iran might
play.
Although some might feel President Bush should have done more in
order to put an end to Hussein, Olson
disagrees.

Saddam Hussein's renewed menacing of Kuwait has prompted me to
reexamine the political naivete that
characterizes discussion of American
intervention in the Persian Gulf, and
to question anew the efficacy of
United States foreign policy.
Here at Marist,,as across the
country, the events have served to
demonstrate the common propensity
towards knee-jerk emotional responses and the shallow understanding of the situation most people have.
•
During a class exercise, I spent
time questioning students and faculty regarding their opinions on further courses of action against Iraq.
Many of the comments were shockingly simplistic.
From a senior political science
major, someone who should know
better, came one of the worst.
- "I support what the President said
in his speech last night," he said.
When asked what he thought the
next step towards Iraq should be he
replied "I don't think it's my place
to question what the President does."
And so the uninformed mandate
of the masses continues.
Many people, harkening back to
the dominant attitudes from the time
of Desert Storm, confuse support for
U.S. troops with approval for the
foreign policy which carts them
abroad.
Support for troops and support for
policy are two concepts which can,
and must, remain distinct in order
for effective public debate to occur.
It is entirely possible to tie a
yellow ribbon around your old oak
tree in the morning, and march
against military interventionism in
the afternoon.
A CNN/Galiup/USA Today poll,
taken the day after President Clinton
authorized the movement of thousands of troops to Kuwait, found that
over 80 percent of those polled favored either invading Iraq to remove
Hussein from power, or maintaining
a presence in the region until he is
removed.
The role of the amateur armchairgeneral is not played solely by
Marist students or the general public, however.
Republican spokespersons heartily supported Clinton's measure,
while democrats went even further,
claiming that there would be no
problem today had we only "taken
care of him the first time."
"Removing Hussein" is a euphemistic way of describing what would
be a long and bloody occupation of
Iraq by U.S. forces. The Iraqis would
not allow us to occupy Baghdad with
;the relative ease with which we retook Kuwait. .
An invasion and occupation of
the greater portion of Iraq would be
necessary because the United States
is barred by an executive order from
"Engaging in, or conspiring to engage in, assassination."
The intent of the order was to
prevent the government from adopting the morally questionable role of
both judge and executioner for foreign political undesirables.
In practice, its effect is
devastatingly ironic: it is illegal to
target Saddam Hussein alone, but
"fine" to kill untold numbers of Iraqis to punish Hussein's actions.
Is this a more moral, a more
"just" resolution?
It is time we also looked critically upon the effectiveness of our
foreign policies; especially upon our
favorite method of meting out punishment: the economic sanction.
Politicians, searching for relief
from public outcry over situations
such as Bosnia, turn to sanctions in
an effort to appear they have "gotten tough" on the issue.
Sanctions, however, have proven
completely worthless, and in fact,
ultimately prove effective only in
punishing ourselves.
In Haiti, U.S. sponsored sanctions

La Parmigiana, located on Route

The large variety of quality Italian dishes, combined with the unique

The restaurant itself is actually

have no clue about how this came to
be, I am sure that it was a great idea.
The designer and interior decorator, without a doubt, deserve

Italian theme, are perfect. (One wall

THE CIRCLE,
These, of course, can be topped
with a host of sauces. They are as
follows: pesto genovese, porchetta,
bolognese, pomodoro, gamberetti,
scollopine and aglio & olio (oil and
garlic.)
The cost of the pasta and sauce
ranges from $6.50-59.50. With regard to both being homemade, I consider that reasonably priced.
There is also a pretty good variety of pizza to choose from.
Ranging from the giana, a pizza
topped with tomatoes and eggplants,
to the rustica, spinach and mushrooms, La Parmigiana doesn't miss
a thing. The pizzas run from five to
nine dollars. Again, for a thin, brickoven baked pizza topped with a
homemade sauce, I consider this to
be reasonably priced.
La Parmigiana also offers a great
number of sandwiches and calzones.
My only complaint may lie in the
limited number of salad choices.
Although both seemed appealing, the
customer is limited to either a greek
salad or a pasta salad.
I would recommend either the
athenian pizza, a pizza topped with
olives, onions and peppers, or the
parma-hero.
I caught a glimpse of the parmahero and it looked superb: freshly
sliced salami, prosciutto, mortadella
porchetta, provolone, tomatoes and
lettuce cover an enormous torpedo
roll.
The next time I eat at La
Parmigiana, I will have a parmahero. It looked incredible.
In terms of an overall evaluation,
and as I've already stated, I think
La Parmigiana is one of the finest
restaurants in Dutchess County. The
atmosphere, the variety of the menu
and the quality of the food combine
to form an exceptional restaurant.
La Parmigiana deserves 4 rounds
of applause. (This, of course, is based
upon a scale ol V - 5.)
•Excluding the limited number of
salad choices, I don't have too many
bad things to say.
I strongly recommend La

Egypt was then nice enough to

America needs to ponder carefully the terms of our commitment
to the defense of "friendly" Arab
states.
Both Kuwait and Saudi Arabia
are strongly against the permanent
garrisoning of U.S. troops on their
soil, yet are unhesitating in their calls
for assistance when facing Iraqi aggression.
Last week, Kuwait consented to
the temporary stationing of one U.S.
tank brigade on their soil, though the
troops to man the equipment would
have to remain elsewhere.
These few men would be able to
offer only token resistance to Iraqi
forces. Now the U.S. has a line of

We should be forever indebted
to the Kuwaitis for allowing us to
defend their soil in this manner.

EERIE HAPPENINGS
Did anyone see "Ghostbusters" and "Ghostbusters II"?
Think back to the scenes where the evil spirits of the netherworld rise up from
- below the streets of Manhattan and wreak havoc on the city.
It was not a very pretty sight.
Demons and spirits were roaming the streets of the city possessing weak individuals, turning them into red-eyed, devilish dogs.
This was quite similar to the events surrounding this year's Festival of Samhain.
Or for those not educated in Druid practices-r- Halloween.
Unfortunately, many of us were unable to celebrate it in true splendor because
it was on a Monday.
But the demons don't think or operate on the same weekly schedule, and we all
found out that they don't seem to care either way.
Let's recap the weekend from hell.
Over the weekend, a Marist student was shot outside of his home in Poughkeepsie.
What do you suppose possessed these individuals to commit a random and
senseless act like this?

that this kind of violence happens so close to us everyday.* Fortunately, the victim
survived.
But the trauma of the event will haunt him for the rest of his life.
No longer will he feel safe walking the streets of his college town.
No longer will he feel a sense of security knowing his perpetrators have not
been caught. ;

But there, were other spooks about.
Another real-life horror story is still unfolding but with an added twist.
W e told you it wouldn't go away.
T h e plot still thickens in the September 1993 rape.case.
More arrests were made this past weekend.
Shane Conry, Marist student, and Rristian Grizelj, a former student, were arrested and arraigned on three counts of rape in the first degree.
Both were affiliated with a well-known greek organization on this campus, not
to mention that John Tasso, the first to be arrested, was also a part of this organizalion.
It doesn't matter who they were, either as members or pledges, the crime was
.still committed.
Be assured there will be more scares in store for them.
Seventy-five years in prison sounds awfully frightening.
But wait...
W e still have more demons to excise.
On Sunday night, Oct. 30, Chicago and Detroit resembled a cut from the movie

The cities went up in a blaze like a funeral pyre.
A series of fires were set in crime-infested areas of the cities, and in some cases
the firemen couldn't keep u p with them.
They had to simple let the fires burn the buildings to the ground.
In this case, the ghouls won.
On Halloween, Oct. 3 1 , a frightening tragedy unfolded at 4 p.m. near Gary, Ind.
Sixty-eight unsuspecting and innocent passengers perished on a American Eagle
commuter plane as it crashed to the ground.
American Eagle said it would not speculate on the cause of the crash.
Did they think it may have been something ripping the wing to shreds as the
plane cruised along in a heavy rainstorm.
Yet another resemblance to a horror movie.
Could the rain have been conjured up by something?
Were they trying to tell us that the horror of Halloween can come in small and
large doses?
Finally, perhaps the strangest of "spookers"—a disappearance.
On Oct. 8, a friend of a Marist student mysteriously disappeared somewhere
near Church St.

Did he just vanish into thin air?

Jesus,
by T O M BECKER
Circle Music Critic
Once a band whose music was
full of morbid lyrics of the abyss
and echoing soul-digging guitars,
The Jesus and Mary Chain brought
their recently released low-calorie
package of songs to the Walker Field
House at Vassar College on Sat, Oct.
29.
The tour comes on the heels of
the band's latest release, "Stoned and
Dethroned," on American Recordings.
The newest record is a collec• tion of soft, bright-sounding melodies that contrast with the widely
present lyrics of reality's bleakness.
"The songs may seem musically
bright, but lyrically not so," said
William Reid, co-founder of the
band with his brother Jim.
The Mary Chain played before a
sellout crowd of several hundred
fans, adorning everything from Rage
Against The Machine and Helmet
shirts to ruffled velvet jackets.
From their first note, the Mary
Chain had the crowd enthralled.
Opening with "Sugar Ray," off
of "Honey's Dead," the band took
the listeners on a brief but entertaining tour of their 5-album history.
Highlights of the show included
the groove-laden, waist-twisting
"Head On," and the lustful, tortuous

Some campus improvements are additional refrigerators in the Old Townhouses, snow guards on the

walkway, more lighting on campus and more security patrols: The majority of accomplishments made
by SGA are in cooperation with a number of our college administrators.

Cap on clubs decided at September meeting, it stands
by BRIAN FRANKENFIELD
Staff Writer
The Student Senate recently determined the cap on clubs at Marist
will stand at 64, despite previous
interest to have it raised.
On Sept. 26, the Senate found
the cap to be reasonable in comparison to the student population, and
members voted to close the Senate's
Club Committee.
The meeting took place as a follow-up on a report compiled last
spring detailing a strong campus interest for more clubs.
"Originally, we wanted to look
at the possibility of having an unlimited amount (of clubs), but we
found through research we couldn't,"
said Jen Nocella, Club Committee
president. "It would not be manageable or financially acceptable."
Bob Lynch, Student Activities
coordinator, feels that the present
number is more than adequate for
the amount of students.
"We feel that we've met our
limit," Lynch said.
He stressed three main reasons
as to why the cap was installed, and
why it will remain.
The first is a problem of management.
The Student Government Association manages all clubs, with some
help from the Student Activities
Office.
According to Lynch, more clubs'
would require much more time on
the part of SGA, time which SGA
doesn't have.
This is time SGA doesn't have.
The second reason is an increased
demand for more meeting space and
a larger budget, and the third involves competition among clubs.
"You have to realize that you're
drawing from the same population,"
said Lynch. "There's a certain competitive aspecl there."
Clubs are divided into six categories: co-curricular, greek council,
honorary, production council, social
service and sports club council.
There are certain procedures and
regulations that must be taken in
order to start a club in any one of,
these categories.
Clubs must first have at least ten
members, a faculty advisor and have
a legitimate budget.
The members must then submit
a list of by-laws to the Student Senate.

Students involved in greek organizations make; up about 12 percent
of the student body and at this time,
two sororities and one fraternity are
also on the waiting list for a charter.
The admittance of clubs into a
council works in a cyclical process.
When a club drops out, it opens
up a spot for a club to move in.
If a club is reviewed and found
not to be following SGA regulations
or their own by-laws, its charter may
be revoked.

The Red Foxes (5-3 overall, 5-1 in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference) saw their four-game winning streak snapped at the hands of
Georgetown University, 35-12, at Kehoe Field.
: ,. ' j > ,
The Hoyas (3-4 overall, 2-3 in the MAAC) got on the board first,
capping a four-play, 23-yard drive to make it 7-0.
V. ' - •
.
After Georgetown increased its lead to 14-0, Manst was able to record
its first score when senior quarterback Bob Delponte clicked on a 62-yard
pass play to senior wide receiver Chris Heath.
The Red Foxes were unable to gain any momentum as Georgetown
responded 5 minutes, 4 seconds later to make it 21-6.
• •
Delponte was able to find freshman wide receiver Jon Reed on an 8yard strike with 6:20 remaining in the third quarter to cut the deficit to 2112.
The Hoyas once again came back, reaching the end zone twice from 21
yards away to close out the game's scoring.
Head Coach Jim Paradysaid he was disappointed with the setback.
"There weren't really any bright spots," the third-year coach said.J'We
knew going in we had to play good football, but we didn't do that."
Senior defensive back and kick returner Bruce A. Harris said the team
was ready to play, despite the length of the bus trip, but penaltiesplayed an
adverse effect.
"We were prepared physically and mentally on the field," Harris said.
"The main thing that hurt us was penalties. We have to be more disciplined
and clean that up."
Marist was penalized 14 times for 129 yards, compared to the Hoyas'
65 penalty yards.
Parady also said he and his club knew Georgetown would be a formidable opponent.
"You look at them, the scores of their games have been within three to
four points against every opponent," Parady said.

swimmers and divers have been
added to the team's roster.

best senior classes he said he has

"Combined, they are one of the
most talented classes," Van Wagner
said.

by senior tri-captain Matt Bluestein.
Bluestein, who swims the breast

Leddy, who finished second in both
diving events, and freshman Chris

of.the men's basketball team, he has
a returning cast of players who were
part of a solid 14-13 overall program
a year ago.
He also has the luxury of working senior guard Dexter Dunbar,who
was an academic redshirt last year,
into the-line-up.
Although Magarity may not admit it, his biggest thrill for the upcoming season is having at least two
more years of coaching at Marist.
..Magarity, who came to control
the sidelines before the start of the
1986-87 season, went through all of
last season not knowing whether he
would return to coach Marist this
year.
He was closely analyzed by the
local media, the fans, and college
administration.
While the press and the people
who filled the McCann Center each
home game had every right to speculate his return, Marist officials should
have signed Magarity before the start
of the season.

Tomidy, a 6-foot-ll, 251-pound

"I think we're looking pretty

12.4 points" per game.
Marist's guards, junior Melissa
Hauser, freshman Liz McDougall,
and freshman Colleen King will be
counted on to immediately contribute to the team's scoring, according
to Babineau.
"With that kind of nucleus of
people in guard positions, I feel that
the scoring can be evened out and
picked up," Babineau said.
He also said Keys, Dengler and
junior forward Tara Walsh will be
factors for Marist's front court..
"I am counting on our inside
game to be more productive between
players like Keys, Dengler and
Walsh," he said. "I expect them to
elevate their games a little bit and
give us more production from the
inside."
Dengler led the Red Foxes last
year, averaging 13.8 points per game
and marked a-.498 field-goal percentage.
Keys, whose career-high 30-point
effort against Wagner College on
Feb. 19, earned her a place on the
NEC all-conference first team last
season.
Keys averaged 12.7 points per
game and a team-high 8.2 rebounds.
Babineau said if Dengler, Keys,
and Walsh can elevate their abilities, his team will have given him
the balance he is searching to find.
"If that happens, that we get the
balance effect that I am desiring as
a coach, I think you make up those
points," he said. "I think we have
the potential to become a more highpowered offensive team than we
were last year."
According to Babineau, he wants
four or five of his players scoring in
the double digits at one time.
"If you have five people scoring
10 or more points in a game, you
are not going to have too many off
nights," Babineau said. "I have total

"I think we've got some interesting possibilities," he said. "We're not
settling into anything just yet."
Marist's back court is led by senior captain Gregg Chodkowski.
Chodkowski, a 6-foot:4, 198pound guard/forward, averaged 5.3
points and 5.1 rebounds last year.
Magarity said Chodkowski will
be mostly playing the number-three
spot, which is the swingman position.
Chodkowski said playing as a
swingman will give him more shooting opportunities, but he also said
he will play anywhere to help the
team win. "More shots will prevent themselves (as a shooting guard,)"
Chodkowski said. "I think whatever
coach asks me to do to win is fine."
The Red Foxes ill have another
weapon at guard with the return of
senior Dexter Dunbar.
. Dunbar, who was an academic
redshirt last season, has played solidly thus far during the preseason,
according to Magarity.
"Dunbar has had some impressive practices," Magarity said.
"Dexter gives us a tremendous
amount of ability. We'll try to keep
him in tune to what we need him to
do."

will elevate their games and give us
the point production to replace Cindy
Canoll."
Babineau said that another key
to his team's future is their hunger.
Babineau said the main thing that
differentiates this season from last
year is the team's will to win.
"Last year I had a feeling that
they just expected that we were going to be a tremendous team because
of our success the year before, and
most everybody from that team'was
back," Babineau said. "We were
woken up to the fact that we weren't
as good as we thought we were last
year.
"The girls have come back with
a better work ethic," Babineau
added. "They're a little hungrier for
wanting success, a little hungrier for
wanting to be the number-one team
in the conference."
Babineau said he hopes the hunger his team is currently displaying
will last through the season, which
starts Monday, Nov. 21 and runs
until the end of regular season play
on Thursday, March 2.
"That depends on the players andtheir mentality of what they want to
accomplish," he said. "We can only
coach them, and they have to play.
We're going to continue to be aware
of that and talk with them about it."
Babineau turns to his tri-captains,
seniors Keys, Amy Presnall, and
Andrea Macey for leadership, and
said it will be indicative of how the
team excels.
"I think with the leadership that
we're getting out of the tri- captains,
the example that certain players are
setting for the underclassman, and
the hunger I see in their eyes, it will
go a long way toward making it a
very successful year," Babineau said.
Babineau is anticipating a good
effort by his team.
"We're excited about this year,"
he said. "Welook at it as a tremendous challenge to improve on last
year."
The women's basketball team will begin its 1994-95 season with the loss
of just one player.
With the graduation of lone senior Cindy Carroll, who averaged-12.4
points per game last season, ninth-year Head Coach Ken Babineau said his
returning players and his newcomers have the ability to perform well and
replace the loss of Carroll.
COURTNEY BLORE ,
Blore is a 6-foot-l freshman guard from East Brunswick, N.J. The East
Brunswick High School graduate averaged 13.7 points and 9.5 rebounds per
game.
Blore led her team to a 29-3 mark, and won the Group IV state title.
Blore was an all-county and an all-area team member. Blore ended her high
school career with 817 points.
"She's going to give us versatility of being able to play a number of
positions," Babineau said. "We'll bring her in to play the five position and
also some four and three."
COLLEEN KING
King is a 5-foot-10 freshman and was a teammate of Blore's.
King, a guard, averaged 9.2 points, 4.7 boards, 4.3 assists, and 4.9 steals
per game.
According to Babineau, King played as a point guard in high school, and
he will be" using her more as a swing guard.
"A small forward, big-guard type of player at 5-foot-10, she fulfills our
needs in the fact that she's very defensive minded," Babineau said. "We
feel that's a key attribute to that position.
LIZ McDOUGALL
McDougall is a 5-foot-7 guard from Ogdensburg, N.Y.
The freshman attended Ogdensburg Free Academy, where she averaged
20.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, 6.0 assists, and 5.2 steals per game.
The freshman scored 1,000 points in her high school career.
According to Babineau, McDougall is a quality athlete who reminds him
of Charlene Fields, who graduated in 1993. _
"She's one of the best athletes that we've seen here in awhile," he said.
"She has the same skills, athleticism and explosiveness as a Charlene Fields."

Although the men's basketball
team has lost Izett Buchanan, they
have regained a player with experience.
After sitting out the entire 199394 season as an academic redshirt,
senior guard Dexter Dunbar has returned to the Red Foxes, and is trying to work his way into the starting
line-up.
Dunbar, who averaged 7.7 points
per game his junior season, said he
likes the team's make-up and is looking forward to helping Marist win
ball games.
"I like the chemistry," Dunbar
said. "I'm looking forward to contributing. I have to find my role and
fulfill it."
Head Coach Dave Magarity, who
is entering his ninth season, said he
is glad to have Dunbar back and
plans to utilize him in key situations.
"I'm really pleased with the way
he has come back," Magarity said.
"His experience and toughness give

Magarity did not have to look too far
to find his two newest attractions to

A matter fact, these young Red

Magarity is hoping these players

Buchanan was Marist's leading
scorer, averaging 25.4 points per game.
He also led the team in rebounds (169),
steals (63), and minutes (1,000.)
BRYAN WHITTLE
The 6-foot-6, 190-pound freshman
comes to Marist from nearby
Spackenkill High School in Poughkeepsie.
Whittle averaged 26 points, 12.4
rebounds, and four assists per game
for the Spartans last season.
Whittle also scored 30 or more
points in nine games, including a 42point effort against Rhinebeck High
SCfiobl.
For his performance during his senior campaign, Whittle was named
Player of the Year by the Poughkeepsie Journal.
Magarity said he believes Whittle
can make a positive impact for himself and for the program as long as he
is able to adapt to the style of play on
the collegiate rank.
"Bryan has the chance to be a good
player at this level," Magarity said.
"He's got to make the transition from
high school onto Division I basketball.
He's a good player that other people
would have liked to have recruited."
Whittle is slated to play the swing
position for the upcoming season.
JOE TAYLOR
This freshman recruit brings with
him a sectional state title into his rookie
season as a Marist College Red Fox.
Taylor, a 6-foot-3, 175-pound
guard, helped lead Bishop Gibbons
High School (21-5) to the Section II,
Class B state crown last season.
Taylor's senior year was also highlighted by a season scoring total of 480
points. He recorded a 54.4 field-goal
percentage and a 40.9 average from
beyond the three-point line.
Taylor is not the kind who plays
the game in a physical manner, according to Magarity.
"Joe is a finesse type of player who
has a real good ability to go by people,"
the head coach said. "What he does so
well is that he canshoot off the dribble,
and he sees the floor."
Magarity said his main concern
with Taylor's future lies with balancing his skills.
"He's got to know when to use (his
skills,)" Magarity said. "He needs to
know what he can and can't do because we have to limit unforced errors."
Taylor and Whittle will face their
first college basketball test on Saturday night at the McCann Center.
"Bryan and Joe got the chance to
be very good players," Magarity said.
"They have to learn how to deal with
pressure. They're going to get a chance
to play."
"J want to win the NEC,
Championship"

Chodkowski'siiietermindtion
has helped him earn respect
by GREG BIBB
Circle Sports Writer
Gregg Chodkpwski is the kind pf
guy who demands respect."
The look of intensity, "drive, and
determination the senior-captain carries with him on and off the court
exemplifies this persona;
It is a look that.' makes
Chodkowski who he is, and one that
some people have already seen.
Junior forward Kareem Hill said
he witnessed Chodkowski's determination in a game at Rider" University
last February.
The game was very.' close, and
Hill was called on by ninth-year
Head Coach Dave Magarity to enter
the game.
After a hard foul, Hill commented
to Chodkowski on how physical the
game had become.
Hill said Chodkowski looked at
him with determination, and told him
they would win.
Chodkowski's bold prediction
proved right as Marist defeated the
Broncs,. 63-59.
As Chodkowski prepares'to enter his final collegiate season, he said
he is compatible to helping the team
earn victories.
"I always hope to do what the
team needs," Chodkowski said. "My
role, is' to keep the horses happy. "I
just hope to fill in the gaps.". Magarity said he has always admired Chodkowski's focus and composure.
•_ y
"When I was recruiting Gregg, I
loved-his intensity,, and" attitude,"
Magarity said. "He was'a perfect guy
to bring into our program.
"He says subtle things .in the
locker room and off the court that
make him the leader of "this team,"
Magarity added. / " . Junior center Alan Torriidy nearly
echoes his coach's sentiments.
"He is an unselfish player and'a
leader," Tomidy said. .
This a role the.team has" come to
expect from Chodkowski, but-it did
not come oyernighVfor him.Chodkowski came to Marist as
a first-team all-Long Island standout

some difficulty on-the court. •
Chodkowski,spent much of his
freshman year, learning Magarity's
system and getting to know-what it
takes to be a solid back-court player
in the Northeast Conference.
The 6-foot-4 forward still played
in 25 games and started twice. He
averaged 1.9 points'and 1.4 rebounds
that year. As a sophomore, the- biology
major once again saw action in 25
games, splitting time at the.smallforward and off-guard positions.
Chodkowski averaged 2.2 points
and 8.9 minutes per game.
Chodkowski's biggest highlight
that year came in, the second meeting against Fairleigh'.'Dickinson, according to Magarity.
Chodkowski drilled three 3-pointers in the first half and scored what
was then a career-high 11 points.
The Syosset, N.Y., native shot
over 44 percent from the field and
connected on 40 percent of his three-,
point attempts^ for,.the season., . j

number 13 asserted himself as a team

Chodkowski's minutes increased
nearly to 28 per game as he was utilized for toughness in the paint and
clutch shooting down the stretch.
He averaged 5.3 points per game
while grabbing just over five rebounds per contest. Chodkowski also
connected on 20 three-point shots and
recorded 40 assists;
Playing several positions and
making a role for himself as Tomidy,
Danny Basile, and.Izett Buchanan
scored the, points, Chodkowski did
all of the little things that gave Marist
its first winning season in four years.
As Buchanan made the headlines,
Chodkowski .dove for loose balls,
fought for rebounds, and played solid
defense against the top scorers in the
NEC. .''•-.,

Arguably/ the most impressive
thing about these statistics is not the
number of steals Chodkowski had,
nor,the number of three pointers he
made. ,

J; It is how he has accepted.his role
as a leader and a team player..
_• Chodkowski, who said he models his game after former NBA great,
Larry. Bird, said he is not concerned
with personal numbers or being in
the'spotlight.
• "Right here, (pointing to his finger), I want- a ring on the finger,"
Chodkowski said. "I want to win a
NEC Championship."
-Whether or* not-the Red Foxes
will be able to accomplish this feat
still remains to be seen. - - 'J
However,' if they, do not,
Chodkowski said he mainly wants
to be remembered as someone who
always tried in everything he did
while at Marist.

all-America candidate.
Currently, Chodkowski is preparing for graduate exams and is looking into graduate-school options as

The senior said he does not have

I had to," Chodkowski said. ''I'llbe

Dengler also explained a ritual

Keys, who is not very talkative
before games, said she uses music
to drown everything out.
