record of 26-2. In his 13 years as freshman football coach, he had a phenomenal seven

Beer Blasts Continue.
At a public hearing held in the public library to accommodate the large
number of people in attendance on September 10 to discuss banning beer blasts in the village,
both village residents and fraternity and sorority members turned out in force to express their
Mayor Ruth Garner began the hearing with a brief summary of events leading to that
hearing: memos to fraternity and sorority members, and both college presidents regarding
complaints her office had received concerning the blasts. President Plane had responded, "Beer
blasts do not have the approval of the College, either on or off the campus." In May, the Village
Board set September 10 as the date for a hearing so students from both colleges could speak.
At that meeting, the first to speak was John Chadwick, social chairman of OPiO, and
chairman of the Inter-Fraternity Council. He presented on behalf of the IFC a list of their
proposed changes in the beer blast permit. Some of the changes recommended were: holding to
a sound level of 100 decibels at 150 feet, having the sponsor provide a minimum of 12 people
to patrol the sidewalk for 100 feet on each side of the property for at least 30 minutes after the
event closed to control the behavior of those leaving the blast; not advertising the amount of
beer available; offering an adequate amount of non-alcoholic beverages besides water; and
informing neighbors at least 48 hours in advance, in writing, that a blast would be taking place.
He added that the IFC would hold public meetings at the end of each semester to hear public
comments and suggestions.
Later, the Village enacted law #9 which banned blasts.
Soccer Season.
Clarkson ended its regular soccer season with its best record yet: 12-2-1, which
ranked the Golden Knights fifth in Division III schools in New York State.
By defeating St. Lawrence 1-0, Clarkson not only retained possession of the President's
Cup, but is also captured for the first time the Plattsburgh Cup, a new symbol of the
competition in Northern New York between Clarkson, St. Lawrence, Potsdam State, and
Plattsburgh State. That victory also gave Clarkson a final 4-1-1 ICAC record, and registered for
goalie Vele Galovski his tenth shutout of the season.
All-American candidate senior halfback Mark Bissonette began the season with a game-
winning goal, and ended it by scoring a total of 17 goals, bringing his Clarkson career total to
34, and career points to 52, a new Clarkson record for one season.
