Two c·ortland faculty members named Distinguished Professors College Relations Two members of the State University College at Cort- land faculty, Hazel Cramer and Charles N. Poskanzer, have been named Distinguished Professors by the State University of New York Board of Trustees. The nominations of Cramer and Poskanzer for the prestigious appointments, made by State University Chancellor D. Bruce Johnstone, received the approval of the Trustees at their Mar. 22 meeting in Albany. Cramer, a professor of French at Cortland since 1969, was designated a Distinguished Teaching Professor, and Poskan- zer, a 39-year veteran of the Col- lege faculty. was named a Distin- guished Service Professor. The formal designation \Distinguished Teaching Profes- sor\ was established in 1972 by the State University to recognize full-time professional members of its teaching cadre who have es- tablished records of superior teaching performance and active scholarship during their careers. The rank of \Distin- guished Service Professor\ was created the following year to honor members of the University faculty who have brought dis- tinction to the State University by performing \outstanding <>ervice ... to the University, the broadercommunity, the state and the nation.\ To date, the rank of \Distinguished Teaching Profes- sor\ has been conferred on only 85 professors from throughout the University system, while even fewer, only 57, have been hon- ored as \Distinguished Service Professors.\ Cramer, a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Case Western Reserve University and the re- cipient of a Ph.D. from Cornell University, is described by her peers as .. a restless instructor ... constantly on the prowl for the new and more ef- fective technique.\ She has pio- neered computer teaching of arti- ficiallanguages, the use of com- puter and video units for self- study, and courses on Franco- phone literature-the literature of French-speaking countries other than France. She also has been certi- fied by the Paris Chamber of Com- merce to teach French commonly used in the business world and to grant certificates of competence to students who excel in this area. Since 1975, Cramer has taught 33 different French courses and, most recently, developed an academic program that allows students to complete two years of study in one. Additionally, she established a French-speaking wing in a residence hall and has taken on responsibility for super- vising the intemsh ip of students training to become high school teachers of Frerrch. Outside of the class- room, Cramer has established herself as one of the country's leading French educators. In the past five years, ample, she has attended professional meetings,chairing a hosting nine. She has served on 1 different Association of Foreign Language · Teachers, and she has researched and presented 23 papers. Twelve of her research articles have been published in major scholarly journals. Poskanzer, a professor in the college's Department of Health, has recorded a four-dec- ade tenure with the college which has been punctuated wifh distin- guished public service at the lo- cal and national level. Long active in local politics, Poskanzer served alter- nately as an alderman and mayor of the City of Cortland during the 1970's, and he has sat continu- ously as a member of the Cort- land County Board of Health since the mid-1960's, a role that earned him the John B. Bennet Public Health Award from the Cortland community in 1983. Nationally, Poskanzer is credited with having made a sig- nificant co11tribution to the crea- tion of the present day system of medical health care for the aged. Working closely with health scholars in the 1950's, Poskanzer produced research projects that proved to be critical for the estab- lishment of present day Medicar~ and Medicaid programs.

BENTON Special to the Press Many Cortland College students traveled to Daytcna Beach, Florida for a spring break that will never be forgotten. Cortland students took part in one of the greatest student migrations of the history of spring break. The city of Daytona re- corded the largest amount of col- lege student vacationers in its history. For those students who weren't there, this should quench some curiosity. When SUNY Cortland students arrived, Daytona was experiencing a mild forecast, lows in the mid 80's and the highs in the 90's. Cortland students along with thousands of others donned their bikinis and jams to soak up the sun. As vacationers soaked up the sun, they soaked up the suds to keep cool. As the suds flowed \party hearty\ Cortland students took the opportunity to show their physical prowess at the games of spring break. At pool side Cort- land dominated in such contests as Best Buns and Belly Flop. This all occurred during the day. The nightlife in Daytona started on the Atlantic Ave drag, with spring breakers crowding the streets. Then the partying continued in one of several nightclubs. A ten dollar cover could get you into bars with names like Razzles, Peruods. 701 . and Kokomo. Those who got the op- portunity to get out of Daytona fora day went to places like Epcot Center, Kennedy Space Center and Disney World. However. the action was at Daytona Beach.

To Miller's Jurkowski, who, in this case, did not distin- guish between parody and satire, such protests arise because \some individuals just don't enjoy par- ody.\ Some do. Jurkowski said she got a letter from the ad staff at the Memphis State Uni- versity Helmsman calling the sup- plement \innovative and uproari- ously funny.\ '\For the sake of all \breakers we hope those who find the insert objectionable don't show up to ruin the tone of the holiday for others\' Jurkowski said the letter read. The Helmsman offices were closed for spring break, and no one could be reached to C()n- firm or deny sending such a let- ter. ·· · 516-751·1154 CROWN CLEANING CENTER Self Service Laundry 21 Clinton Ave. Across from Gordons Drugs 7:00am- 10:00 pm * Spacious * CfeCin * PleasantAtmosphere HEADING fOR EUROI\ETHIS SUMmR (OR ANYTIME?)
