Clark. · In response t() questions from members ()f the Cort- land C()llege Student Ass()ciation, Clark said he will bring the issue up with each of the current members of the DIFR board. He said he has received adequate input from the DIFR board alld will make the final decision. James Cu lle11, former CCSA president, said there are many merits to having a student represelltative on the DIFR advisory board. He said studenl represen- tation would aii()W students to participate in the step by ~tep processe~ of budgeting. Last year the S.tudent Ad- visory Board was given the completed budget during the last week of classes, he said, making it impossible for SAG to come up witll feasi- ble alternatives or sugges- tions. A student representative on the DIFR board would be able to undentand the 'how's' of self-sufficiency and the 'why's• of alloca- tions, Cullen said. Marlene Markoe, CCSA president, said it is important for students to be aware of the DIFR situation. She said the more student input there is through CCSA, faster is the response from the administration. Students should take a more active stance on the DIFR issue, Markoe said, because it is their dorm rates that are at stake and in danger of being increased. Under sel f-~u ffi de !ley, the dorm rate~ increa!-.ed $82 alone during tile 1986-87 .... .:hool year. \Selling Television\ is focus of noon seminar By ANDREW IJRIGHT Slajf Writer The three metltod~ of sell- ing television wa~ the focus of \Selling Teleri~ion\ at Monday's <.;andVIi(!-1 ~eminar pre~ented by Robert J. Thompson, .:omrnun icat ions profes!'.or. Thompmn .concentrated on the fall \pf()mt>~.\ which the network!. use to set the agenda for the new ~eason. The main purpose of the!-.e promotional pieces is to con- vince the viewer heh.he is watching the best network. Thompson points out that the networks convince the reader in a numl>er of way-.. The fir'>! i., tihe \escape\ method, the seL~()nd is the • 'new exc1t1ng place method,\ and tihe third is the .. only real friernds are on television'' met hod~ he said. The escape method con- cern!'. sexual imagery, and 'itresses that television is a free, non-addictive narcotic, said Thompson . He showed an example of a network prom()tional piece where a man walks home from work deeply dejected. His. life is dult a11d dreary, unt1l suddenly C)Ut of the cor- ner of his eye he sees a televi- sion in a store window with Joan Collins seclucti vely in- viting him into ller colorful, and dreamy W{)rl<l. The !-.econd method, the new exciting place, ~tre~~e!-. that televi!-.ion i~ the only place to be. and far ~urpa~se!-. reality, said Thompson. The networks want you to believe, he !-.aid, that the reason you go to work j., to have lebure when you go home to watch televi~ion. Quoting philospher Thomas Hobbes, Thomp~on -.aid the netv.ork~ ~tre~s that reality i!-. far too '\na brutish, and sho.rt.\ The final method the net· v.orb u!-.e j., the \onh friend\ you havei,on tcle\i\- \ion \aid Tllomp,llll, hecau!-.e the televi~ion friend-.. are loyal and reliable.

Thompson ~aid net work!-> never alienate any particular group, but alway~ speak to all ethnic, ra.:ial, and economic groups. Networks always want us to believe that \the one thing that ~nites us in the 20rh century 1s . not love or any olher umversal language but it's television, said Thompson. i53-1444 c: jt II n st e; s t J
