A s usual. The walls were yellow the tables were v-ellow and my lettuce kept falling on my Levis. A J I I think about are these horrible thoughts of late late nights and free for all sprees. And how and why did I wake up the next morning. You told me all the stuff about having no regrets and I said Yes me too. But I do. I have regrets lor all the. times I cried while I was in the city with my mother or when I tried to make her cry and finally did, for the time we all spend four hours riding the subways, for those billionu of times I felt so uncomfortable with you. And why on earth should I have? And finally for the lousy nights I spent with you. Thanks. My books are shredding my lights going out and I lost my unopened pack of gum. But I am starting all over. My things will go on the floor I shall walk on tbe walls and sleep on the ceilings . No one explains to me Beardsley’s works and things just keep getting harder with no answers. I am determined now. No more of this shit I’m goi ng to listen and work and not look into everyone’s eyes tor you. If you’re there honey by JACQUELINE KAGEL you’ll find me. It’s snowing and I don’t have to eat the snowflakes because I just finished off snowballs and gravy. It’s all ironed out-pretty much between me and them, now it’s all up to me and me. The mint-in-tea-bags smell great and I remember, ^knd that’s all I do. Remember. The air makes my mouth dry and I remember or I wash an ashtray out and I remember. I am not bringing the diamonds or the velveteens. So forget it and I will. The land and I will live as we always have. But I can’t have any roses because I cry and sneeze. The drapes we'll make of . . . calico maybe. And the puppy I’ll hide under mv bed. I-won’t look at the blackened skies even if they are there and I won’t listen to the shouts or even smell the piss in the alleys. The closet will do. Fine. My face and body are calm and serene with sleep and lazily I remember you have not come yet. She’s out catching them like flies. I note the notches in her belt. And the quiverings in her voice. But no more from me. I can’t find the letters or the pictures. Anywhere. And the paints-l threw them out. I learned today that even at the height of our greatest pleasure we are all alone. That's how we are brought together. But I learned too that even at the bottom of hell we swim up. Alone. He gave me this salve to put on but I can’t reach my heart. Or my brain. I've opened the window and have decided to write him a story-a- bout him. He’ll like it. I’m sure. My thoughts are all packed away and the only thing left is my toothpaste. Sometimes they’re too high up and sometimes the’re too low. And so am I. But it’s ail O.K. I’ve been told it’s easy sailing from here. Friendship means nothing to me now because I want to kiss everybody. And you. The dictionary holds a zil lion words for everything I feel, thanks to Freud and Webster and Fromm and Spock and perhaps in that order, But I feel none of them. This pen feels like ground in dirt and the soap never gets the ink out. But some like it. I’ve noted all the shoes worn and my foot does not look like a size four. The music has stopped and the clickety clics of machine sure sound different than the scratch- ings my pen used to make on the kitchen napkins. It’s over and you’ve shown me a lot and you haven’t shown me a thing. Thanks. V o l u n t e e r C e n t e r O p e n s by H E L E N E SISKIND LAM R O N Feature Editor After many months of organi­ zation . '.nthusiasm and devotion, the Volunteer Center is open! Located in College Union room 313, m0 Center is open from 9 a.m. tn 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and will serve students and members of the community. The Volunteer Center is the result of m attempt to coordinate all organizations which utilize volunteers. This is to be matched with a list of available people who wish to volunteer their own time and effr.ri. \Our goal is that the office will be run like an employment agency/ Says Stu Hanzman, one of the principle organizers of the coordinating effort. In order to take advantage of the seivice, ore must fill out an application form at the office stating tne type of work he or she would like to do. Agencies and organizations needing volunteers also fill nut a form on which their needs are outlined along with how m a n y hours a week volunteers are needed. The two are thun matched up. \Students shouldn’t be afraid if they only want to do something o n o We’re trying to make it very easy for them. They simply come here and go to work. It’s as easy as that,\ Harvzman said. The idea for an office such as 'h|v vas proposed by Nancy ?ahlf‘r vice chairperson of Lentrai Council, who obtained 'he ,nd of Paula Newland, A\uc- tant Dean of Allegany Hall 3r'd a u Haruman, president of Sooir,i0gy Cfub. These three cons 11 tute t'necurreni staff of the Center Were in no way in competi- 'lf-in with campus organizations; were an independent organiza­ tion and not involved with Central Council,\ Stu stated. Right now the Volunteer Center s operating without a budget and needs students to help staff it so nat it will be open its full hours. Une goal of the Volunteer nter is to coordinate car pools traveling to off-campus volunteer sites. The staff hopes to organize a scheduling bulletin board of where people are traveling and when. An example of agroup who has w o r k e d already th r o u g h the Center as A g o Sorority. The A g o sisters sorted clothing for flood victims through the Red Cross last weekend. The staff organized a Volunteer Fair in the College Union during Human Liberation Week where students were able to obtain information concernina service organizations on and off campus. At that time, several students filled out volunteer forms. Names of students wishing to volunteer their time have also been obtained from su r v e y s which were distributed in the dining halls several weeks ago. Over 200 students expressed a desire to do volunteer work and these people will be contacted shortly by the Center for further information. Remember: the Volunteer Center is open and ready to help you!

(continued from page six) To the editor, As a founding member of the University of Buffalo chapter of the National Association for Women (MOW), I have always been interested in women’s liberation. On February 12th, during “Human Liberation” week, I planned to attend the 5 p.m. sesson on Women’s Studies. Before the session started, another male and I, (the other male was a faculty member in sociology, who had encouraged his class to attend the session), were asked to leave. The reason given for asking us to leave was that as me n we would not be able to contribute beneficially to the session. There were approximately ten or fifteen women at the session out of a school with approxi­ mately 3,000 females. Ms. Susan B. Anthony, are male interests not welcomed by your “daugh­ ters”!?!
