Business School Receives International 
Education Grant 



The U.S. Department of Educa- 
tion has awarded a three-year 
$720,000 grant to the College of 
Business and Management to estab- 
lish a national Center of Interna- 
tional Business Education and 
Research (C1BER). The business 
school was one of 11 institutions 
chosen out of more that 60 appli- 
cants (including Georgetown Uni- 
versity, as well as a consortium of 
Virginia universities). There are 16 
CIBERs nationwide. 

A major focus of CIBER is to 
increase the interaction between the 
study and the practice of interna- 
tional activities by both business 
and government. Conferences, 
seminars, workshops and other 
programs will be used to identify 
needed areas of training and re- 
search, as well as to share informa- 
tion on new developments and 
research findings. In addition, 
CIBER will publish a newsletter 
containing information on its activ- 
ities and news from other national 
centers around the country.

CIBER. He is assisted by an advis- 
ory council chaired by business 
school Dean Rudolph P. Lamone 
and including representatives of 
the university, state government, 
and members of the national and 
international business communities. 

"Today, all business is interna- 
tional," says Lamone. "Giant multi- 
national corporations, many of 
them linked to each other though 
joint ventures and agreements, op- 
erate throughout the world. And 
even very smalt firms make export 
sales and confront foreign competi- 
tion in their home markets. I be- 
lieve Maryland's CIBER will be a 
major contributor to international 
business education and research." 

The CIBER grant is the third 
largest received by the College of 
Business and Management in sup- 
port of its international programs. 
In 1988, the college was awarded a 
two-year $130,000 grant for work in 
international marketing and trans- 
portation, and last spring received 
a two-year $100,000 grant (shared 
with the College of Arts and Hu- 
manities) to establish an under- 




graduate major in international 
business and foreign languages. 
The new major, with an emphasis 
on Spanish language and culture, is 
available this semester. Additional 
languages will be added to the ma- 
jor over time.

Parking: Enough for Now, but 
Future Shortage Likely 



Users of the College Park park- 
ing system will find adequate park- 
ing and modest fee increases — for 
now, parking officials say. 

But, as campus building projects 
continue to swallow up existing 
spaces, the university may soon 
need to construct a new parking 
garage — possibly accompanied by 
dramatic fee increases. 

Highlighting university concerns 
about parking, a blue ribbon com- 
mittee, appointed by President Wil- 
liam E. Kirwan and chaired by Burt 
Leete, associate dean of business 
and management, will study and 
make recommendations on a vari- 
ety of parking issues this fall. 

"As always, parking will be tight 
the first couple weeks of classes 
when an unusual number of people 
are on campus, registering and that 
kind of thing," says Leonard 
Jankowski, director of the Depart- 
ment of Campus Parking (DCP). 
"We were able to add a temporary 
lot for students and some spaces in 
existing lots. Some of the spaces 
may not be as convenient as people 
would like, but in terms of num- 
bers, we're in good shape." 

Jankowski and associate director 
David Allen say that the parking 
system will not suffer a decline in 
parking spaces during this academ- 
ic year as it did last year when 
nearly 1,000 spaces were lost to 



major construction projects such as 
the new College of Business and 
Management and School of Public 
Affairs buildings, two surge build- 
ings and the A.V. Williams Build- 
ing expansion. 

At the beginning of the 1989 fall 
semester, the campus had 16,224 
spaces compared with 1 5,468 cur- 
rently. No major losses in space are 
anticipated this year and, more- 
over, nearly 300 spaces will be 
added to the system this spring for 
the new administrative support 
building on Paint Branch Drive. 

The biggest problems for system 
useTS will be inconvenience caused 
by shifts in availability, Jankowski 
says. Many student permit holders 
have been moved from construc- 
tion sites in Lot 1 to Lot 4. Faculty 
and staff permit holders will no 
longer be able to use Lot 11 as an 
overflow lot because of space 
reductions there. 

In 1991-92 and beyond, how- 
ever, the problems promise to be- 
come more severe when major 
building projects such as a new 
plant sciences building will be con- 
structed in existing parking lots. 
Enough spaces would be tost to 
shrink the amount of parking to 
unacceptable levels, Allen says.

Published Women's Luncheon Series Begins Fifth Year 

The College Park Branch of the American Association of Univer- 
sity Women and the Maryland University Club have announced 
the schedule of the fifth season of their popular Friday noon 
luncheon series held at the Rossborough Inn. Speakers this year 
will be: Margaret Palmer, Sept. 14; Jane Donawerth, Oct. 12; Debor- 
ah Rosenfeit, Nov. 9; Gladys Marie Fry, Feb. 8; Carol Robertson, 
March 8; and Rhonda Williams, April 12. The luncheons are open 
to everyone; reservations ($9) are needed for each program. Call 
Vonnie Franda at 504-8013 for information or to make a reservation 
for the Sept. 14 luncheon. 



Committee to Study Parking Issues 




mntintii'il fiimi page I 



"Eventually those spaces will 
need to be replaced to meet the 
parking needs of the campus," he 
says. 

Replacing those spaces likely 
will necessitate construction of a 



third parking garage, Allen says. 

At $7,000 per space, the cost of 
constructing a garage is more than 
three times greater than a surface 
lot. Garages, however, are the pre- 
ferred method for adding parking 
spaces on a campus where the 
amount of open space is 
dwindling. 

Because the DCP is a self-sup- 
porting unit — one funded entirely 
bv revenue from fees, fines and 
meters — users of the parking sys- 
tem would fund the entire $2.9 mil- 
lion in estimated annual costs that 
would result from building a third 
garage. The parking system re- 
ceives no compensation when park- 
ing lots are used at the sites for 
new or expanded buildings. 

Thus, the 1990-91 increase in 
parking fees for faculty and staff 
from $80 to $86, is small change 
compared to increases that might 
be needed in the future. Further 
increases as large as $100 per per- 
mit holder might be needed to fi- 
nance construction of a new 
garage, Allen says. 



Proposals for funding a new 
garage — and changing the fee 
structure for parking — are among 
the issues the blue-ribbon commit- 
tee will review. 

First on the committee's agenda, 
however, are proposals to adopt a 
new system for dealing with visitor 
parking. A change in the system 
could result in new charges to visi- 
tors for parking in university lots. 

Consultants from the parking 
departments at six universities 
visited College Park during the 
summer to help the committee de- 
velop proposals for dealing with 
visitor parking. The committee will 
hold public hearings on the issue 
this fall, Leete says. 

The DCP will work closely with 

departmental parking coordinators 

to make sure departments are 

aware of how to make parking 

available to visitors, Jankowski 
says.

Maryland Faculty at 
ACS National Meeting 

Five Maryland faculty members 
presented research papers during 
the 200th meeting of the American 
Chemical Society in Washington, 
DC. last month. 

Glen E. Gordon spoke on 
"Nuclear Chemistry for Non-tradi- 
tional Audiences" and discussed 
courses the university has devel- 
oped on the subject for non-chem- 
istry undergraduate students. 

Historian Mary K. Matossian 
discussed her research on the 
"Possible Effect of Zinc Deficiency 
on European Fertility Decline in the 
19th Century." 

"C -Glycoside Synthesis Utilizing 
Glycosylmanganese Pentacarbonyl 
Complexes," a paper discussing 
new methods for synthesizing car- 
bohydrate compounds, was deliv- 
ered by Philip R. DeShong, asso- 
ciate professor of chemistry. 

James W. Herndon, assistant 
professor of chemistry, reported on 
his research on " A Synthetic Ap- 
proach to Cephalotaxine Based on 
Chromium Carbene Complexes," a 
simplified method for synthesizing 
various compounds. 

Bryan W. Eichhorn, assistant 
professor of chemistry, discussed 
his research involving the search 
for new superconducting materials

conductors. 



can be used by the academic, gov- 
ernment and business community. 
Another goal is to build an econo- 
metric model of Maryland that can 
be used to be used for forecasting 
and policy analysis. 

The data base being constructed 
will contain gross state product by 
industry, employment and payroll 
hv indnstrv bv countv, emplov- 
ment, hours and earnings, by in- 
dustry for the state and Standard 
Metropolitan Statistical Areas. It 
also will include personal income 



Knight Center to Offer 
Teleconference Course on 
Health Care 

A new approach to providing 
professional journalists with timely 
information on complex subjects 
will be launched Nov. 27 by the 
Knight Center for Specialized Jour- 
nalism in the College of Journal- 
ism. 

During a special four-hour tele- 
conference, reporters and editors 
around the country will be able to 
question experts during their pre- 
sentations on the rising cost of 
health care. The seminar will pro- 
vide leads on information sources 
and regional story ideas. 

The November seminar will be 
transmitted via the National In- 
structional Television Network 
from a studio-classroom at College 
Park at 12 noon. 

Nearly 200 journalists have re- 
ceived fellowships from the cen- 
ter's one- week and two- week cour- 
ses on economic, scientific and 
medical subjects at College Park. 
"Those courses will still be offered, 
but the November program will 
enable us to test the effectiveness 
of teleconferences for brief ses- 
sions," says Howard Bray, center 
director. 



by industry, population, per capita 
income by country, as well as other 
information. 

Economics department chair 
Mahlon Straszheim says he hopes 
to produce regular quarterly fore- 
casts of the Maryland economy 
with both state- level and county- 
level detail on employment and 
income. 

The data banks are being creat- 
ed on "G" software. This makes it 
possible to access large amounts of 
data easily and to distribute the 
data on diskette or via telephone 
modem hook-up. The data can be 
presented graphically or in tables 
and can be transfered to other soft- 
ware packages such as spreadsheets.

Maryland's Solar Car Headed for the 
Land Down Under 



The Pride of Maryland, a sleek, 
sun-powered transcontinental race 
car designed, built and driven by a 
team of College Park students, 
soon will be on its way to 
Australia. 

The car qualified for the trip by 
finishing a convincing third place 
overall in the 1,641 -mile GM Sun- 
rayce USA, an 11 -day race from 
Florida to Michigan that ended July 
19. 

The race, which featured solar- 
powered vehicles from 32 colleges 
and universities in the U.S., Canada 
and Puerto Rico, started July 9 at 
Epcot Center at Lake Buena Vista 
and ended at the GM Technical 
Center at Warren, Michigan. It was 
sponsored by the General Motors 
Corp., the U.S. Department of Ener- 
gy and the Society of Automotive 
Engineers. 

The University of Michigan's 
Sunrunner captured first place in 
the Sunrayce with an elapsed time 
of 72 hours, 50 minutes, 47 se- 
conds. It was followed by the Vik- 
ing XX, a car built by students at 
Western Washington University in 
Beltingham. Elapsed time for the 
Pride of Maryland was 80 hours, 10 
minutes and 55 seconds. 

The Maryland car beat entries 
from California State Polytechnic 
University, Massachusetts Institute 
of Technology, Stanford University, 
Virginia Polytechnic Institute & 
State University and the Universit- 
ies of Pennsylvania and Texas, 
among others. 

GM is sending the top three 
Sunrayce finishers to the World 
Solar Challenge, a 1,900-mile race 
across the Australian outback from 
Darwin to Adelaide. The inter- 
national race has 43 entrants from 
several large corporations including 
Honda R&D Co., Ltd. and the 
Hoxan Corp. of Japan, as well as 
schools and organizations in 
England, New Zealand, West Ger- 
many, Nigeria, Canada, the U.S. 
and Australia, and even several 
high schools. The green flag start- 
ing the Australia race will be 
waved on November 1 1 . 

According to David Holloway, 
professor of mechanical engineer- 
ing and the College Park team 
faculty advisor, the winning car 
will probably take five to six days 
at speeds averaging 40 to 45 mprt 
to complete the race. 

"There will be more predictable 
sun conditions, flatter terrain, and a 
lot less traffic to worry about," he 
says, "In fact there is only one stop 
light on the entire route." Heavy 
rains, high winds and overcast 
skies during part of the Sunrayce 
plagued cars and may have pre- 
vented Maryland from taking first 
place. 

And, unlike the Florida to Mich- 
igan race, the Solar Challenge is 
not a staged race with staggered 
starts for each car each day deter- 
mined by their elapsed time of the 
previous day. Instead, Holloway 




Brisbane 



explains, after the first day on the 
road, all cars must stop nightly at 
5:30 p.m. wherever they happen to 
be and resume driving at 8 a.m. the 
next morning. 

GM will pay the costs of send- 
ing eight Maryland team members 
and the Pride to Australia. But, 
Holloway says, he wants to take a 
team of 12 to 15 members and is 
seeking additional sponsorship and 
funding support for the trip. 

The Maryland car will be 
shipped to Australia by air in mid 
October; the team's support vehicle 
and other gear and equipment will 
depart by sea September 15. 

The Pride of Maryland — a proj- 
ect that involved a team of 50 stu- 
dents majoring in mechanical, elec- 
trical and aerospace engineering, 
computer science, and meteorology 
for more than a year — took first 
place in qualifying trails at the 
Daytona Speedway and was the 
first car across the GM Sunrayce 
starting line. Maryland won the 
Governor of Florida's Energy A- 
ward in "Recognition of Dedication 
to Improving and Promoting Solar 




Energy 
Technology." 

The team also 
won SAE safety 
engineering design 
and DOE technical 
report awards and 
took first place in the 
Indianapolis Motor 
Speedway lap race. 

The Maryland team won the 
first place award for Engineering 
Excellence presented by Papular 
Science magazine and a check for 
$2,000. It also had the best times on 
five of the eleven days of the race. 

Engineering Dean George Dieter 
was at the Warren, Michigan finish 
line to greet the Maryland car and 
team. "Their success demonstrates 
what we have always known: that 
students from the University of 
Maryland at College Park can com- 
pete successfully with the best en- 
gineering schools in the country. 
The college is very proud of them."

Maryland Teleconference Links Soviet 
Political Leaders and American Women 



The University of Maryland at 
College Park made history June 16 
when the first-ever teleconference 
between women political leaders 
from the United States and the 
Soviet Union took place at College 
Park. 

The teleconference was part of 
the university's third annual Evolu- 
tionary Leadership Program for 
Women Political Leaders. The con- 
ference was co-sponsored by the 
university's Center for Political 
Leadership and Participation and 
the Office of US-USSR Academic 
Joint Ventures. 

The focus of this year's 
conference was the role of women 
leaders in the Soviet Union and the 
emerging democracies in Eastern 
Europe. 

Teleconference activities at the 
Moscow site were coordinated by 
Senator Klara Hallik, a Deputy of 



the Supreme Soviet from Estonia 
and a member of President Mikhail 
Gorbachev's Committee on Inter- 
Ethnic Policy. Congresswoman 
Connie A. Morella (R-Maryland) 
hosted the United States conference 
link. 

An international computer net- 
work provided women from 
around the globe with the oppor- 
tunity via home and office compu- 
ters to enter into ongoing dialogue 
on issues of importance in their 
home. 

"As we enter a new decade with 
the promise of peace, I think there 
will be a trend of more women 
political leaders, because women 
are seen as more rational, caring 
and trustworthy. This conference is 
a reflection of that trend," says 
Georgia Sorenson, director of the 
university's Center for Political 
Leadership and Participation.

Alumni Association President 

Has Found Success "One Step at a Time" 




Newly-appointed 
Alumni Association 
President, Evelyn 
Pasteur Valentine 




MARYLAND 



COLLEGE PARK 

ALUMNI 

ASSOCIATION 



"Anything is possible if you 
work hard enough at it." 

Evelyn Pasteur Valentine, the 
newly-appointed president of the 
University of Maryland at College 
Park Alumni Association, lives 
what she preaches. 

Valentine, the eldest of 15 child- 
ren, has come a long way from the 
outer banks of Beaufort, North 
Carolina to her present life in the 
Baltimore- Washington area as an 
accomplished educator and busi- 
nesswoman. 

The 55-year-old Valentine, a 
proud woman with a warm smile, 
describes this time in her life as 
coming "full circle." 

For more than 27 1 /2 years she 
worked in the Baltimore Citv Pub- 
lic Schools, first as a home econom- 
ics teacher (in 1974 she was select- 
ed National Merit Home Econom- 
ics Teacher of the Year), later as a 
principal, and finally an admini- 
strator in the central office. 

While working in the central 
office, her duties included assisting 
top management in the develop- 
ment and implementation of the 
multi-year/ strategic plan for the 
school system. 

Now she is retiring. But hardlv 
resting. 

This fall she has become an as- 
sistant professor with a joint ap- 
pointment in the College of Educa- 
tion and the Sellinger School of 
Business- Department of Manage- 
ment and Law at Loyola College. 
She is also the president of her 
own consulting business — the Pas- 
teur Center for Strategic Manage- 
ment. 

"I have been fortunate enough to 
have had a variety of experiences," 
she says. "And I have tried to take 
advantage of any opportunity that 
presents itself positively." 

Valentine knew early that she 
would pursue a college education. 
It was expected of all the Pasteur 
children. 

"We didn't have a choice," she 
says with a fond smile. "My father 
didn't have the money to send us, 
but we had to go." 
Her father, who was in the furni- 
ture business and was also a poli- 
tician, had attended college, but 
never graduated. He expected 
much more from his own brood of 
ambitious, eager children. 

Soon, a plan was developed. 
Each time a Pasteur graduated 
from college, he or she helped put 
through the next in line. All the 
Pasteur children received a college 
education. 

"Every sister and brother helped 
everyone else," says Valentine. 

And that requirement was not 
just confined to bachelor's degrees, 
but master's and doctorates, as 
well. 

"We're a close bunch," says Val- 
entine,_who says the family is still 
prone to calling a family council to 
help a sibling decide on a career 
move or other decision. 



Valentine, herself, is the mother 
of a grown daughter and two 
adopted sons. 

As a teenager Valentine knew 
that she wanted to attend the Uni- 
versity of Maryland at College 
Park. She had an aunt who lived in 
the area and would send the young 
Evelyn newspaper articles on the 
school. 

"Coming to the university was a 
major dream of mine," she says. 

She received her bachelor's de- 
gree in Home Economics and Gen- 
eral Science in 1955 from North 
Carolina Central University. But 
her dream was realized in 1967 
when she received her master of 
science degree in family life and 
child development in the College of 
Human Ecology from the univer- 
sity. 

Her father, who had recently 
suffered a stroke, was there to see 
her receive her master's degree. 

"When they asked the parents of 
the graduates to stand," she recalls, 
"my husband and younger son 
helped him to his feet." 

After receiving a certificate of 
advanced study in school manage- 
ment from Loyola College in 1979, 
Valentine returned to College Park 
to receive her doctorate in educa- 
tion, policy and planning as a inter- 
disciplinary student in the College 
of Education and the College of 
Business and Management and pre- 



sent the graduate student commen- 
cement address, as well. 

"One of the most rewarding 
aspects of my life has been an op- 
portunity to be part of the univer- 
sity family. And being president of 
the alumni association to me is the 
highest honor any student could 
ever achieve," says Valentine, who 
also served as president of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland Alumni 
Board-College of Education and is 
a member of the University of 
Maryland's Chancellor's Advisory 
Council. 

Valentine, who was also the re- 
cipient of a four-year University of 
Maryland Other Race Fellowship, 
as well as other awards and hon- 
ors, says that the "time is right for 
me right now," as she looks for- 
ward to her current duties. 

She is a member of several pro- 
fessional organizations, such as the 
American Management Associ- 
ation, life member of Phi Delta 
Kappa Educational Organization, and 
past president of the Marvland Phi 
Delta Kappa Chapter, as well as 
area coordinator for 10 colleges and 
universities in Maryland, Delaware 
and Washington, D.C. 

In summing up her accomplish- 
ments, Valentines says, "1 just do 
the best 1 can with each activity I'm 
involved in. I take one step at a 
time." 

One very determined step.

Endowment for the Humanities 
grant to continue the program for a 
third year. 

'Theatre East and West" is a pro- 
ject designed to bring enhanced 
study of Japanese and English cul- 
ture and literature into high clas- 
ses. Using parallels between 
Shakespeare and Kabuki as a focal 
point, academic co-directors 
Thomas Rimer, chair of Hebrew 
and East Asian Languages and Lit- 
eratures, and Howard Dobin, asso- 
ciate professor of English, work 
with high school educators in a 
year- long program that culminates 
with a trip to Japan. 

The program began in 1989 with 
a two-year, $336,000 NEH grant. 
While the first groups of educators 
have been from Maryland, Virginia 
and the District of Coiumbia, the 
new funding requires that organ- 



izers work with a national group of 
teachers. 

"We are delighted to have the 
opportunity to continue the pro- 
gram," says A dele Seeff, executive 
director of the Center for Renais- 
sance and Baroque Studies and co- 
director of the program. Barbara 
Finkelstein, professor of education 
and director of the International 
Center for the Study of Education 
Policy and Human Values, is the 
other co-director. 

"The people at NEH were quite 
complimentary of the program. 
They said it is 'a very powerful 
concept,'" says Seeff. 

The program was organized by 
the Department of English, the 
Department of Hebrew and East 
Asian Languages and Literatures, 
the Center for Renaissance and Bar- 
oque Studies, and the Center for 
the Study of Education Policy and 
Human Values.

National Public Broadcasting Archives 
Established at College Park 



The National Public Broadcast- 
ing Archives, the nation's most 
comprehensive collection of mater- 
ial on the history of public broad- 
casting, is being established at the 
University of Maryland at College 
Park. 

The four major public broadcast- 
ing organizations— The Corpora- 
tion for Public Broadcasting, The 
Public Broadcasting Service, 
National Public Radio and the Na- 
tional Association of Public Tele- 
vision Stations — have committed 
their historical records to the collec- 
tion. The first of these materials 
were transferred to the university 
in June. 

In addition to historical records, 
the archives will contain kine- 
scopes, audio and visual tapes, 
films and personal papers relating 
to the development of public 
broadcasting in the U.S. The ar- 
chives is jointly sponsored by the 
university and the Academy for 
Educational Development of Wash- 
ington, D.C. The academy's senior 
project officer Donald R. McNeil, 
who initiated the project, will dir- 
ect the collection of the materials. 

"With the development of the 
National Public Broadcasting Ar- 
chives, the University Libraries will 
become a national center for the 
study of the public broadcasting 
movement," says Joanne Harrar, 
director of libraries. 

"The resources will be important 
to faculty and students in journal- 
ism, radio and television, business 
and management, communications, 
sociology, literature, history, music, 
the arts, economics and many other 



fields. In addition, the archives will 
attract major scholars from around 
the world. Our archival staff is al- 
ready receiving numerous inquiries 
from scholars in the U.S. and 
Canada," says Harrar. 

To commemorate the creation of 
the archives, corporate, government 
and public broadcasting leaders 
visited the university for a June 
event hosted by President William 
E. Kirwan. Participants included 



The four major public 
broadcasting organizations 
are contributing materials 



to the new National Public 



Broadcasting Archives. 



Donald Ledwig, president of the 
Corporation for Public Broadcast- 
ing; Bruce Christensen, president of 
the Public Broadcasting Service; 
Douglas Bennet, president of Na- 
tional Public Radio; David Brugger, 
president of the National Associa- 
tion of Public Television Stations; 



Don W. Wilson, Archivist of the 
United States; and Christopher T. 
Cross, U.S. Assistant Secretary of 
Education. 

During the event, the presi^ 
dents of the four major public 
broadcasting organizations present- 
ed Kirwan with important docu- 
ments from their respective ar- 
chival files. 

Among the collections already 
on file are records of one of the 
most unusual projects in the annals 
of public broadcasting — the Mid- 
west Project on Airborne Television 
Instruction. 

In the 1950s, with support from 
the Ford Foundation, an airplane, 
equipped with a television trans- 
mitter, was sent aloft over Chicago 
each day. The plane beamed public 
television programs to schools in 
six states. 

The National Public 
Broadcasting Archives project is 
drawing extensive support from a 
variety of institutions and 
organizations. In addition to 
donating their records, PBS, CPB 
and NPR made cash contributions 
to initiate the archives. Other do- 
nors include the Children's Tele- 
vision Workshop and six of the na- 
tion's major public broadcasting 
stations- — WET A in Washington, 
WTTW in Chicago, WGBH in Bos- 
ton, KCET in Los Angeles, WHYY. 
in Philadelphia and WNET in New 
York.

RESEARCH 




Technology Liaison Office Expands 
Income and Services 

The Office of Technology Liaison, now three years old, is man- 
aging more than 100 active patent disclosures, bringing more than 
a quarter million dollars in income to the university annually, and 
expanding the quality and variety of services it provides to re- 
searchers and businesses. "By measures such as the number of 
disclosures identified and protected, license agreements achieved, 
and income earned, the activities of Technology Liaison have 
brought benefit to the campus, its inventors, and to the com- 
mercial enterprises who license our innovations," director Wayne 
Swann E. notes. 




mmm Professor Uses Electron Beam 
Accelerator to Irradiate Poultry 



James L. Heath 



In Early May, the Food and 
Drug Administration (FDA) ap- 
proved the use of irradiation on 
poultry to control Salmonella and 
other forms of disease-causing bac- 
teria. Irradiation — exposing a pro- 
duct to small doses of radia- 
tion — can extend the shelf life of 
poultry by several weeks under 
proper refrigeration. 

James L. Heath, professor of 
poultry science, has been conduct- 
ing research on poultry irradiation 
techniques since 1987. He says that 
proper cooking will kill most bac- 
teria in poultry, but irradiation can 
nearly eliminate infectious bacteria 
in poultry before the product reac- 
hes the consumer. 

In his research, Heath uses an 
electron beam accelerator to pene- 
trate the surface of poultry meat, 
thereby killing most of the bacteria 
there. He says this is particularly 
effective for the elimination of sal- 
monella, which lives near the sur- 
face of meat. According to Heath, 
the electron beam can be activated 
at the flip of an electrical switch — 



similar to operating a microwave 
oven- — and when treatment is com- 
plete, there is no lingering residual 
radiation in the meat. 

"This is a good, safe alternative 
to using gamma rays, the more 
commonly used irradiation tech- 
nique," Heath says. "Because the 
electron beam requires less shield- 
ing [than for gamma rays], the 
working environment for poultry 
handlers is safer. Also, electron 
beam accelerators can be installed 
directly at poultry processing 
plants, unlike the gamma ray meth- 
od which would require that pou- 
ltry be sent to a special irradiation 
treatment facility." 

According to Heath, when gam- 
ma rays are used to irradiate poul- 
try, source materials must be low- 
ered into a pit and submerged in 
water before it is safe for food han- 
dlers to enter the area and remove 
the poultry. The gamma ray tech- 
nique also requires disposal of the 
radioactive waste. 

Heath says that consumers 
should begin seeing irradiated pou- 



ltry in the stores during the coming 
year as producers begin test mar- 
keting the products. But he believes 
three to five years of consumer 
education will be required to gain 
wide public acceptance for irradiat- 
ed poultry. 

"These techniques are totally 
safe for the consumer," he says. "Ir- 
radiated poultry is not radioactive 
under the FDA requirements. 
These techniques will improve food 
safety by greatly reducing the bac- 
teria found in poultry." 

Heath points out that irradiation 
has long been approved by FDA 
for insect control in fresh fruits and 
vegetables, for disin testation of 
grains and spices, and for the con- 
trol of trichina in pork. 

According to Fleath, the Ameri- 
can poultry industry could find 
their first market for irradiated 
poultry in several European coun- 
tries where these products have 
been approved and accepted for 
many years.

Seven Faculty Members Win Presidential 
Young Investigator Awards 



Seven young College Park facul- 
ty members, all assistant pro- 
fessors, have won prestigious, five- 
year National Science Foundation 
Presidential Young Investigator 
Awards. 

The seven are: Timos Sellis, H, 
Dieter Rombach, and John Yiannis 
Aloimonos, all of the Department 
of Computer Science; Thomas 
Cohen, Department of Physics and 
Astronomy, Rinaldo E. Poli, De- 
partment of Chemistry and Bio- 
chemistry, Frederick N. Skiff, Lab 
for Plasma Research, and 
Evanghelos Zafiriou, Department of 
Chemical and Nuclear Engineering 
and the Systems Research Center. 



College Park placed fifth among 
all universities — public and private 
—in 1990 PYI awards behind Berk- 
eley, MIT, Illinois, and Wisconsin. 
Only Berkeley had three computer 
science faculty award-winners. 

The seven bring to 24 the num- 
ber of Maryland faculty who have 
received the award since it was es- 
tablished in 1984. 

Sellis is a specialist in data base 
systems, Rombach, an authority in 
software engineering and program 
languages, and Aloimonos an 
authority on computer vision. 

Cohen specializes in nuclear the- 
oretical physics. Skiff, who also 
won a two-year Alfred P. Sloan Re- 



search Fellowship this year, is an 
experimental plasma physicist. Poli 
is a specialist in organic chemistry, 
and Zafiriou is an authority on 
robust process control, non-linear 
control, and process design and 
optimization. 

Each year, NSF sponsors 200 
young investigator awards to fund 
research by promising college pro- 
fessors who are beginning their 
careers. The awards can be worth 
as much as $100,000 per year for 
five years. NSF provides an annual 
base grant of $25,000 and matches 
up to $37,500 per year of gifts from 
industry. 



New Summer Physics Program for 9th Grade Girls Launched 



Last July, the Physics 
Department initiated a two -week 
program in physics for 28 area girls 
who are entering the ninth grade 
this fall. 

The free Physics Summer Out- 
reach Program was designed to 
give them a chance to work direct- 
ly on some of the most interesting 
subjects in physics — boiling and 
freezing, telescopes, taking and de- 
eloping photographs, rainbows, so- 
lar cooking, seeing and hearing 
around corners, and even the mar- 
vels of the new superconductors. 

The new program, which ran 
from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each 
day, provided the students an op- 
portunity to see how the science of 
physics works up close. There were 
no lectures, no examinations and 
no grades. Each girl, within a small 
group of five, worked directly with 
her teacher on the experiment and 



subject of the day. The instruction 
was personalized and informal. 
"Our premise is that physics, 
engineering, and related sciences 
have always had very low 
participation on the part of women 
and minorities," notes Angelo Bar- 
dasis, professor of physics and the 
department's associate chair for 
academic affairs. "It recognizes that 
this cannot be solved at the college 
level, but must be addressed at the 
elementary or at least the junior 
high level. The emphasis 
throughout was 'hands on,' on do- 
ing science. The atmosphere was 
noncompetitive and cooperative. 
Every girl was encouraged to voice 
her opinions and to participate to 
the fullest." 

The summer program is being fol- 
lowed by three Saturdays each 
semester during the regular school 
year. 



Three young participants in summer physics 
outreach program examine lab equipment.

Kirwan Address and Elections Top 
Senate Agenda for Sept. 13 

The "State of the University" address by President William E. 
Kirwan and the annual elections of the chair-elect and members of 
the executive committee will be main items of business at the first 
meeting of the Campus Senate for the 1990-91 academic year on 
Thursday, Sept. 13 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. in Room 0126, Reckord 
Armory. Also on the agenda are three committee reports by 
Earlean McCarrick, Thomas Regan, and Patrick Cunniff. For infor- 
mation about the meeting call 405-5805. 




Flagship Channel Provides Pictures of 
University to P.G. and Montgomery Viewers 



With two local cable television 
channels at its disposal (Channel 
38- B in Prince George's County and 
Channel 59 in Montgomery Coun- 
ty), the College Park Flagship Sta- 
tion can show whatever part of 
university life catches a camera's 
eye. 

In recent months, commence- 
ment exercises, wrestling matches, 
lectures on global warming, musi- 
cal concerts and a call-in show on 
university admissions have been 
among the pictures of campus life 
broadcast live or via video tape to 
a potential audience of 250,000 
cable television viewers in Prince 
George's and Montgomery count- 
ies. 

Through cable access channels 
made available by the governments 
of the two counties, the station also 
runs daily graphic features such as 
calendars of events and university 
job listings. And in addition to 
their own productions, station pro- 
grammers tap into university ar- 
chives for academically related 
films produced by other units, 
broadcast 

some student-produced programs 
such as the university news pro- 
gram, Maryland Update, and use 
public service programming from 
off -campus sources such as live 
feeds from NASA satellites. 

"There's a tremendous potential 
here," says Marjory Small, the uni- 
versity's coordinator of cable tele- 
vision programming. "There's a de- 
mand for more programming than 
we have the resources to provide. 
There is time available to broadcast 
1,100 hours every 16 weeks — that's 
about twice as much as we do 
now." 

The Academic Media Technol- 
ogy and Telecommunications Ad- 
visory Committee oversees the sta- 
tion's operation and provides gen- 
eral guidelines for programming. 
Chaired by Sue Clabaugh, director 
of the Educational Technology Cen- 
ter, the committee has designated 
three primary areas of program- 
ming: service, academics and mul- 
ticultural programs. 

The station is run by two full- 
time staff members, Small, who 
manages the station and co- 
ordinates its fund-raising and edu- 
cational components, and Kenny 
Holl, who oversees production. 

Each semester 25-30 students 
from radio, television and film and 
broadcast journalism, work for the 
station, seeing the channel as a 
place to get hands-on training in 
broadcasting. Small is working to 
create programs through which 
students would receive credit for 
their work with the station. 

Broadcasts do not orginate dir- 
ectly from the channel's office in 
the basement of the Benjamin 
Building. Instead, they are trans- 
mitted from the Non-print Media 
Center in Hornbake Library to the 
cable system. Consequently, Holl 
and his staff must transfer most of 



a week's programming onto master 
tapes which are then hand -carried 
to Hornbake for broadcast. (Live 
broadcasts are cablecast directly 
from the site of the event to Horn- 
bake.) 

An innovative computer pro- 
gram is used to queue up the tapes 
so that they run without super- 
vision. The system was developed 
by Chet Rhodes, journalism, Jeff 
Wagner, Non-Print Media, and 
Chris Schlesliger, an electrical en- 
gineering student. 

"They did an amazing job," 
Small says. "If this had been done 
by a professional consultant it 
would have cost five times as 
much and wouldn't have been as 
well-tailored to our needs."
