Students of Political Science Professor Robert Spitzer enrolled in his class Introductio:n to American Govern- ment will join him at noon in front of the Old Main building to partici- pate in a cake-cutting ceremony. The cake will be frosted with a like- ness of the American flag. By decorating a cake with the American fla,g and then consuming the cake, Spitzer hopes to raise with his students some of the important constitutional issues sparked by the bill passed by Congress last Friday which subjects any individual to possible c:riminal penalties who \knowingly mutilates, defaces, physically defiles, burns, maintains on the flooo or ground or tramples upon any fl~g of the United States.\ This week, CClngress is considering a constitutional amel}dment to ban flag-burning_ \The flag·bul'iling bill raises a host oftroubt:.ing question$ that arise ironi~lly atatiine whenthe nation is commemorating theBi9entennial of the Bill ()fRights,\' according to Professor SP>itzer. \For example~ why would Congress pass such a (See CAKE p. 2) Volullle .XD Nu1111Mr 6 • nATE UNIVIIRSITY OF NEW YORK, COLLEGE AT CORTI.AND • October ZO, I 989 School spirit runs high during Homecoming.

Second act of vandalism forces fraternity to offer reward and ask help from the By Robert Anzalone, Jr. ~taft Writer A second attempt at vandalizing the Pi Kappa Pbi Fra!ernity ~ouse on 59 Tompkins St., Cortland oc- curred at 3:15 am on Oct. 13. A stone projeCtile was hurled through one of the hoase 's picture windows and left it in sbards of glass and debris. As a result a police inve~ti­ gation has beell undertaken and the Fraternity is r»ffering a $500 reward for informatiCJllieading to the suc- cessful apprel!ension and prosecu- tion of the ctil!Jrit(s).

Dana Hoffman, the landlord of 59 Tompkins, replaced the attacked glass and paid for its repair; however, Mr. Hoffman will· not again replace the currently damaged glass and expects the Fraternity to completely pay for an act they did not commit.
