Next Year's Asking Budget — A Call For Retrenchment 



The UM Board of Regents has 
approved the university's 1992 fis- 
cal budget request, and for the first 
time in many years, it does not 
reflect any increased state general 
fund support. Inflationary adjust- 
ments are covered primarily 
through base reductions in state 
supported programs. If the Current 
People Services (CPS) budget 
request, alone, is funded, College 
Park will receive the same amount 
of state funding next year as this 
year. 

A retrenchment budget at best, 
the asking budget for all state 
agencies was prepared at the 
instruction of Governor William 
Donald Schaefer. Because the state 
is projecting a slower rate of reve- 
nue growth, budget officials asked 
all state agencies to develop budget 
requests that do not exceed the 
General Funds allocated for this 
year. 

College Park's fiscal 1992 asking 
budget totals $348,939,143 in State 
Supported Programs, an increase of 
$6.8 million, just 2 percent above 
this year's working budget. The 
State Supported budget includes 
$242.5 million in General Funds, 
$98.9 million in Special Funds, and 
$7.6 million in Federal Funds, The 
university receives approximately 
41 percent of its budget from State- 
Supported Genera! Funds. The 
remaining 59 percent is derived 
from federal and special funding 
sources. 

The budget proposal recognizes 
increased revenue from tuition of 
$4.7 million to help fund contin- 
uing initiatives. This includes an 
average tuition increase of 3.9 per- 
cent for resident undergraduates, 
7.9 percent increase for non-resi- 



dent undergraduates and a 5 per- 
cent increase in tuition for graduate 
students. 

The request contains a manda- 
tory classified salary increment of 2 
percent. No merit increases for fac- 
ulty and professional staff are in- 
cluded — the first time in memory 
that no merit increment is called 
for in the asking budget. 

Mandatory inflationary increases 
in fringe benefits, fuel and utilities 
and fixed charges (insurance) 
account for a total of $3.6 million, 
and other designated increases in 
the health center, financial aid, and 
facilities renewal costs total $2.4 
million. Reductions in fuel and util- 
ities funding and less-than-15-y ear- 
life equipment, amount to over $1.2 
million. 

As part of the budget process, a 
one percent reallocation of General 
Funds was required by the state for 
all agencies. This mandatory 
realignment ol funds will result in 
$2.4 million less money available 
for equipment, labor and assistance 
in physical plant and the libraries, 
tuition remission and fringe bene- 
fits. The reallocation of funds will 
help fund LI MS, Francis Scott Key 
scholarships, the Advisory Com- 
mittee on Course Enrollment Statis- 
tics and Strategies (ACCESS), and 
other academic program improve- 
ments (8 positions). 

Also selected environmental 
safety programs and the upgrade 
and enhancement of custodial ser- 
vices in physical plant (36 posi- 
tions) will be accomplished 
through this reallocation of 
resources. 

The budget request does not 
provide for the fourth year of the 
planned undergraduate enrollment 



reduction; since the replacement of 
lost tuition and fee revenue with 
state General Funds is not included 
in the asking budget, the plan will 
be put on hold for a year, unless 
state General Funds are added 
through the governor's asking bud- 
get. 

To continue minimum support 
of College Park's Enhancement 
Plan, money generated from the 3 
percent tuition increase will be 
used to fund the following initia- 
tives: recruitment and retention

Andy Geiger Named 
Athletic Director 



Ferdinand A. (Andy) Geiger, 
whose tenure as athletic director at 
Stanford University elevated him to 
the top rank among the nation's 
athletic administrators, was named 
Sept. 7 to direct the athletic pro- 
gram at the University of Maryland 
bv College Park President William 
E. Kirwan. Geiger succeeds Lew 
Perkins who resigned in July to be- 
come athletic director at the Uni- 
versity of Connecticut. Geiger's ap- 
pointment is effective October 1. 

Geiger led the 29-sport Stanford 
intercollegiate athletic program to 
27 collegiate national champion- 
ships since 1979, the most won by 
any school in the nation. Under his 
tutelage, the Cardinal teams also 
won a total of 96 NCAA individual 
titles, the most in the country. This 
was accomplished while Stanford 
teams continued to maintain a top 
rank among U.S. schools academi- 
cally. Geiger also oversaw physical 
education, campus intramurals, 
club sports, recreation and the uni- 
versity golf course. He realigned 
the athletic department with staff 
expansion for club sports, fund- 
raising and public affairs, 

"Andy Geiger comes to Mary- 
land after an extraordinarily suc- 
cessful eleven-year tenure at Stan- 
ford University. He has been a 
national leader in the reform move- 
ment, he is deeply committed to 
the welfare of student athletes, and 
he has managed programs that 
have been both successful in com- 
petition and models of integrity. 
His appointment signals a new era 
for our athletic program. I could 
not be more pleased by his selec- 
tion," said Kirwan at the press con- 
ference announcing Geiger's 
appointment. 

"Geiger was the overwhelming 
choice of the search committee," 
said Vice President William L.

Thomas, the search committee 
chair. "His qualities fit the job 
description very well. It is pleasing 
that our top candidate was the one 
named." 

"During my visits here 1 was 
tremendously impressed by the 
potential of Maryland and by an 
administration that is committed to 
a successful athletic program both 
on and off the field of play," said 
Geiger. "1 am looking forward to 
working with President Kirwan to 
accomplish the goals he has set 
forth." 

Geiger, 51, has been an athletic 
administrator for 27 years. A 1961 
graduate of Syracuse University, he 
was assistant athletic director there 
from 1964 to 1970. In 1970 he 
moved to the Eastern Collegiate 
Athletic Conference as assistant 
commissioner. He was named ath- 
letic director at Brown University 
in 1972, and he moved to another 
Ivy League school, the University 
of Pennsylvania, as athletic director 
in 1975. During his final year there, 
the University of Pennsylvania be- 
came the last Ivy League school to 
qualify for the final four of the 
NCAA Men's basketball 
championship. 

Geiger was named athletic direc- 
tor at Stanford at the end of 1978, 
and he guided the Cardinal teams 




New Athletic Director Andy Geiger 



to the position of athletic leader- 
ship in the highly successful Pac-ll) 
conference. At the national level, he 
provided leadership in the expan- 
sion of the NCAA basketball tour- 
nament and served on the NCAA 
Basketball Tournament Committee. 
He was chair of the ECAC's Com- 
mittee on Infractions. 
An oarsman at Syracuse Univer- 
sity, he competed in the 1959 Pan- 
American Games as a member of 
the U.S. team. He was a freshman 
crew coach at Dartmouth College, 
and later served as manager of the 
U.S. crew at the 1971 Pan- American 
Games and as secretary of the U.S. 
Olympic Rowing Committee. 

He has been married to the for- 
mer Eleanor Rollings for 28 years. 
They have two children, Phillip 
and Gregory. 



Regents Approve Asking Budget

($350,000), library collections 
(5400,000), minority and women 
faculty (6 positions and $300,000), 
Center for Excellence in Manufac- 
turing (3 positions and $300,000), 
Public Policy and International Af- 
fairs (3 positions and $300,000), and 
administrative computing 
($340,000). 

State budget procedures allow 
agencies to submit an "Over the 
CPS Request" — a chance to ask for 
high priority needs that have not 
been funded within the current 
people services (CPS) budget 
request. Given the status quo called 
for in the CPS budget, the Over the 
CPS Request takes on special sig- 
nificance next year. The hope is 
that at least some of the high pri- 
ority programs and items essential 
to the university's continued pro- 
gress will be funded if the state's 
fiscal health turns out to be more 
positive than currently indicated. 
For College Park, the Over the CPS 
budget request totals $18.7 million. 
It includes: 

• Enhancing College Park as 
the State's Flagship Campus, $9.6 
million to enrich undergraduate 
education, reduce student/ faculty 
ratios and introduce new courses 
for freshmen; recruit and retain 
some of Maryland's best high 
school students; enhance diversity 
by increasing minority participa- 
tion at the graduate level; improve 
academic programs in core areas; 
implement new initiatives in the 



sciences; expand public service, 
especially in agriculture and engi- 
neering; and enhance the effective- 
ness of administration. 

• Downsizing, $1 ,425,000 to 
continue the fourth year of a five- 
year plan to replace with state Gen- 
eral Funds the tuition revenue lost 
by reducing the number of under- 
graduate students by 20 percent. 
The total full-time equivalent en- 
rollment is projected to decline by 
572 students, or two percent, in FY 
1992, if the plan is funded. 

• Access to Veterinary 
Medicine, $671,760 to cover a tran- 
sition of the program from MHEC 
to College Park. 

■ Merit salary adjustments, $4.8 
million to support a 4 percent aver- 
age merit increment. 

• Extending the Facilities 
Renewal Program, $2.2 million. 

What are the chances that some 
of the over the CPS priorities for 
College Park will be funded? 

The governor, of course, has an 
opportunity to make adjustments 
in the university's request before 
presenting his asking budget to the 
legislature in January, 1991. But 
much depends on whether the 
forecast of slower growth in the 
state's tax revenue actually 
occurs — and whether the gover- 
nor's budget priorities for other 
important state programs take pre- 
cedence over the university's 
needs.

New Directory on Women and Gender Published 

Women and Gender: A Directory of Scholars, Teachers and Resources 
at the University of Maryland, College Park has just been issued by the 
Curriculum Transformation Project. Faculty who submitted entries 
will receive a copy. Others who wish copies may request them 
from the Curriculum Transformation Project office, 405-6882. 
Deborah Rosenfett, director of the project, reports that 16 faculty 
members from across the campus spent June and July immersed in 
the second Summer Faculty Development Institute, "Thinking 
about Women." She says to watch for announcements of campus 
presentations by the participants. 




Everyone Welcome at Open House 
for New Visitor Center 



With the recent installation of a 
new Campus Visitor Center in the 
Dairy Salesroom on the first floor 
of the Turner Building, friendly 
faces are greeting visitors to the 
university. 

Specially trained students, alum- 
ni and former faculty and staff will 
manage a desk in the northwest 
corner of the Diary where visitors 
can receive directions and other 
general information about the uni- 
versity. Handouts available to 
visitors include university and Col- 
lege Park town maps, fact sheets 
and transportation information. 
Traffic signs on Route 1 between 
the Beltway and the university 
direct visitors to the center. 

The center, coordinated by Nick 
Kovalakides, former director of 
Campus Recreation Services, and 
Pat Perfetto, director of Campus 
Guest Services, under the auspices 
of the Office of Student Affairs, is 
part of a concerted university effort 
to give visitors a warm reception. 
Creation of a university visitor cen- 
ter was among the six initiatives 
planned by President William E. 
Kirwan when he took office. 

While the new desk is a modest 
beginning for the program, it goes 
a long way toward filling a major 
void at the university, Kovalakides 



and Perfetto say. 

"The treatment of visitors at the 
university has always been an in- 
terest of mine, and I know that 
there are many others who feel the 
same way," says Kovalakides, a 33- 
year veteran of the university who 
is on professional leave this semes- 
ter in preparation for a new post in 
which he will focus on visitor 
issues. 

A key element of the project 
this month is informing the univer- 
sity community about the center 
and the services it provides. 

An open house will be held at 
the center the week of Sept. 24-28. 
University employees are encoura- 
ged to visit the center in order to 
make themselves aware of the ser- 
vices available there. Faculty and 
staff also are encouraged to direct 
expected visitors to the center for 
information. 

"I'm excited about people com- 
ing over and seeing what we're try- 
ing to do. This is a project that is 
entirely positive for the university," 
Perfetto says. 

Organizers look forward to 
eventual expansion of the center, 
Perfetto says. Officials in the 
Department of Animal Sciences 
would like eventually to move 
their ice cream-making operation to 



Kovalakides' Ten Tips on 
Welcoming Visitors 



In his 33 years at College Park 
as a student, coach and employee, 
Nick Kovalakides has been con- 
cerned about the impression visit- 
ors receive of an institution in 
which he takes great pride. 

Always willing to lend a helping 
hand, Kovalakides has long been 
an informal goodwill ambassador 
for the university. 

This fall, the position is becom- 
ing formalized. Kovalakides, form- 
er director of Campus Recreation 
Services, is on professional leave 
this semester to prepare for a new- 
ly created position in which he will 
focus on visitor issues. 

Already, however, he has set 
goals for his new position. Among 
them: convincing his colleagues at 
the university that good visitor 
relations begin with them. 

"When you think about it, most 
of the people who visit our campus 
want to learn from us or become 
part of our family. Either way, 
their being here is a compliment to 
us," he says. 

Toward this end, Kovalakides 
has devised a list of tips for 
making visitors feel welcome. Here 
are his tips: 

1. Greet our visitor as soon as he 
or she appears in your area. Estab- 
lish eye contact and smile. The 
sooner and friendlier your greeting, 
the more comfortable our visitor 
will feel. 



2. Promptly ask our visitor 
whether he or she needs your 
help. Our visitors shouldn't be 
made to feel like they're bothering 
you. By asking, "How may 1 help 
you?" you demonstrate your will- 
ingness to assist. 

3. Give our visitor your undivided 
attention. If you start looking at 
the work on your desk or chatting 
with a colleague, our visitor will 
feel like he or she is in the way. 
Keep in mind that even though this 
is your umpteenth visitor, it is our 
visitor's first time meeting you. 
Your handling of each visitor is of 
paramount importance. 

4. If you are busy, let our visitor 
know when you will be able to 
give him or her your attention. If 

you're simply too busy to help, ask 
a colleague to speak with our 
visitor. 

5 Answer our visitors' questions 
as best you can, but don't guess. 
Misinformation will undo all your 
other good work. Also, avoid 
giving opinions unless asked for 
them. 

6. If you don't know the answer to 
a question, try to find it. Taking a 
minute to call another office for the 
information will make you terrifi- 
cally responsive and our visitor 
will feel important. If you send our 



the Animal Sciences Building. 

Although ice cream sales would ■ 
continue, such a move would free 
space to remodel the Dairy to ac- 
commodate more visitor activities, 
he says. For information call 314- 
7777, 

Brian Busek 




Nick Kovalakides on duty at the new campus Visitor Center 



visitors elsewhere for answers, 
they'll think, "Here goes another 
runaround." 

7. If you absolutely don't have 
time to help track down the infor- 
mation, offer our visitor use of 
your telephone. You might even 
look up the number and dial it for 
him or her. 

8. Always keep a university map 
at your desk (at the very least 
there's one in your telephone dir- 
ectory) so you can provide direc- 
tions. If our visitor is traveling by 
car, be sure to point out where he 
or she can park legally — a parking 
ticket leaves a bad taste. 

9. No matter where you are, if you 
see someone who looks lost or 
confused, offer your assistance 
before you are asked. It never 
hurts to ask, and if the person does 
need help, you will have made a 
friend for the university. 

10. Remember to send our visitors 
on their way with a friendly 
"enjoy your visit." You've probably 
gotten them off on a good start 
toward that goal.

Matt Sheriff: Food Service with a Flair 




Matt Sheriff, Dining 
Services director 



m? 



* 



The T.V. commercial begins with 
smiling, prudish women in grey 
cafeteria uniforms earnestly 
displaying unappetizing meals, 
such as "Meatloaf Surprise" and 
"Tuna Tetrazini" As the 1%6 song 
"See You In September" plays in 
the background, an announcer 
urges students to indulge in Roy 
Rogers delicious fast food soon 
before they're limited to school 
cafeteria horrors. 

Area school food service 
departments were offended by this 
campaign, but Matt Sheriff, the 
university's Dining Services direc- 
tor who has been "served" his share 
of distasteful remarks from 
Diamomiback editorials, does not let 
their attacks ruin his appetite for 
college feeding. 

"I try not to react to little special 
interest groups that may raise Cain 



about something," says Sheriff. " I 
don't worry about the newspaper. I 
read it. 1 don't like it when they 
personally attack me. Co into the 
dining halls, talk to the kids. That's 
where you'll find out [the real 
opinions]." 

Sheriff, who says he has always 
been in the food business, 
graduated from the New Hyde 
Park New York, Culinarv Institute 
in 1%2, and worked as a chef at 
the Roger Smith Hotel. 

The college food industry first 
became appetizing to Sheriff when 
he worked for Rutgers University 
in New Jersey. 

"1 was unit manager there; I ran 
all the dining halls," Sheriff said, 
"When the assistant director there 
came here, I came with him." 

Sheriff began at Maryland as the 
associate director in 1975 and 
became Dining Services director in 
1979. Since then, he has worked to 
improve the quality and reputation 
of Dining Services. 

"Maryland had a reputation of 
one of the worst college food ser- 
vices; everv thing thev cooked 
either came in a can or it was fro- 
zen," said Sheriff. "One of the 
reasons food services got turned 
around was because the people 
that were here wanted to improve 
it." 

College Park's dining services, 
which was recently the featured 
cover story of FtW Management 
magazine, is now among the ten 
best food services in the country. 
According to Sheriff, more than 25 
schools visited the campus last year 
to find ideas to improve their own 
sen ices. 

"We're getting closer to where I 
want us to be than we were 15 
years ago," said Sheriff. "Then, 
magazines were writing about how 
bad we were. They would say if 
you want to do something wrong 
go to Maryland. Now they're 
saying if you want to do something 
right, come to Maryland." 

Besides offering information to 
more area colleges, Dining Services 



publishes a Dining Service* Awan'- 
fii'ss newsletter to answer any 
questions parents and students 

might have about the campus food 
plan. 

Sheriff also believes direct com- 
munication is important. 

"I've never refused to talk to a 
student," he says. "I'd like to think 
I'm available to every student, but 1 
have a staff that is available to talk 
to them, and if thev' re still not sat- 
isfied, I'll talk to them." 

Although Sheriff has 15 years 
behind him, he admits he still 
adopts new ideas. An adjustment 
he made this year was in response 
to students' fetish for Italian food. 
The "What's Your Beef" restaurant 
in the Stamp Union, will now be 
called "UMBerros" and specialize in 
Italian cooking. 

"The kids love Italian food. Be- 
tween chicken and Italian they're 
going to grow red feathers," he 
says, "That's how much thev eat it. 
So we decided to try an Italian 
restaurant. It will be less expensive 
[than "What's Your Beef], and 
we'll have a few premium items 
like veal parmesan." 

Although the county does not 
require employee certification nor 
county health inspections. Sheriff 
requires both to keep his workers 
on their toes. 

"I told | the inspectors] not to tell 
me when they're coming. What 
does that do? Let's get ready 
because the health inspectors are 
coming? So now they just show 
up." 

In the future Sheriff would like 
to increase customer satisfaction, 
and consumer communication and 
to stabilize prices. He is unsure, 
however, if perfection is an attain- 
able goal. 

"I'm never going to stop trying," 
said Sheriff, "I love it here. It's the 
best job I've ever had. The people, 
the university, it's a great place to 
work and 1 know why I'm here. 
I'm here to serve people."

Last spring, 33 employees 
walked from Washington, D.C. to 
Philadelphia. 

All were participants in the Uni- 
versity of Maryland Fitness 
Walker's program, sponsored by 
Campus Recreation Services. 

The walkers had from Feb. 12 to 
July 4 to accumulate 130 miles, the 
distance between the two cities, by 
walking inside the Reckord 
Armory or outside on prescribed 
routes. 

Those who completed or exceed- 
ed tin. 1 distance were awarded T- 
shirts attesting to the successful 
completion of their "trip." 

They are: Agnes Abell, physical 
plant; Constance Batts, CMPS; Bet- 
ty Brooks, computer information 
systems; Ralph Burgio, university 



printing; Bertis Cascio, agriculture 
experiment station; Carole Cook, 
physical plant; Gina Covington, 
mathematics; Jane Deren, CRBS; 
Karen Earl, office of the bursar; 
and Susan Fidlow, department of 
textiles and consumer economics. 
Others who hiked the distance 
are: Conrad Foerter, research

Meriam Rosen 



Rosen Works to Help Students 
Find Way on Dance Floor 



Throughout her multi-faceted 
career, Meriam Rosen, professor of 
dance, has learned many times 
over what a difference a good 
teacher can make for a student. 

Inspired teachers helped pave 
her artistic journey from aspiring 
ballet dancer to modern dance 
choreographer and improvisation 
specialist. And it is a lesson that 
influences her own approach to 
teaching. 

"I'm a real believer in the value 
of learning dance in a university 
setting," says Rosen, a member of 
the College Park dance faculty 
since 1967. 

"If 1 hadn't gotten into a univer- 
sity dance program (at the Univer- 
sity of Illinois), 1 otherwise 
wouldn't have found modern 
dance, which has been my life," she 
says. 

In introducing students to the 
different paths a young dancer's 
career might take, Rosen draws on 
the experience of her own varied 
career. While her choreographic 
work and her direction of Improvi- 
sations Unlimited, a dance com- 
pany in residence at the university, 
is well-known in the area, her pre- 
Maryland background includes ex- 
tensive work as a dancer and a 
stint as a teacher at an experimen- 
tal school in Illinois. 

After finishing her under- 
graduate training in the late 1940s, 
Rosen taught dance for six years at 
an experimental high school in 
Champaign, III. With selective en- 
rollment, accelerated learning and 
an emphasis on creativity, the job 
was an enjoyable and challenging 
introduction to teaching, Rosen 
says. 

In 1955, Rosen left the classroom 
to work the dance boards. She 
toured four years with the Dance 
Quartet, a modern dance company 
that produced several other per- 
sons who have had fruitful careers, 
including Virginia Freeman of the 
Folger Theater and Dan Wagoner, 
who later worked with Martha 
Graham, Merce Cunningham and 
Paul Taylor. Rosen also danced 
with the Washington Dancers in 
Repertory and the Ethel Butler 
Dance Company. 

In the early 1960s, Rosen came 
to the University of Maryland at 
College Park where for several 
years she taught classes while 
working on a master's degree in 
dance. 

Rosen's interest and skill in 
choreography burgeoned here. 
Also, she discovered her most 
recent avocation— improvisation. 

"I had avoided improvisation; it 
was a dirty word to me," Rosen 
says. "My first experience was that 
it was unstructured, emotional 
catharsis kind of stuff, not very 
worthwhile." 

However, a Maryland colleague 
who was adept at creating quality 
improvisational pieces demon- 
strated to Rosen the possibilities 



that existed within the form. 

Rosen soon saw that rather than 
freewheeling self-indulgence, im- 
provisation could become a height- 
ened collaboration between dancers 
and directors. 

In much of the improvisation 
that Rosen directs, she gives her 
dancers ideas that they work 
through in movement. She then 
leads the process of picking out the 
best expressions that emerge. 

Rosen was so taken with the 
form that she founded Improvisa- 
tions Unlimited in 1978. The com- 
pany has presented more than 500 
workshops and performances. 

Area audiences will have an op- 
portunity to see examples of 
Rosen's most recent work as a 
choreographer at a dance concert 8 
p.m. Friday, Sept. 21, at Publick 
Playhouse in Cheverly. Dancers, 
including several College Park fac- 
ulty and students, will present new 
Rosen works "Drifting" and "Fierce 
Attachments." For ticket informa- 
tion call 277-1710.

RESEARCH 



Simon Says Nation to Benefit from Immigrants 

A new book, The Economic Consequences of Immigration, by busi- 
ness professor Julian Simon, says the United States will stand to 
benefit from accepting more immigrants into the country. Simon 
argues that the free economy of the United States unleashes the 
creativity of immigrants in ways that generally are not possible in 
most other countries. "All the U.S. need do to sharply increase the 
rate of advance in its technology and its industrial productivity is 
relax its barriers against the immigration of skilled creators of 
knowledge," Simon writes. The book has been favorably reviewed 
in The New York Times, The Walt Street journal, and Business Week. 



Geologist Finds that Statue of Liberty is 
Undamaged by Acid Rain 



Beneath Lady Liberty's pretty 
green face is a brown skin of cop- 
per. The green surface is the patina, 
an ornamental film of chemicals 
that form naturally on copper as a 
result of corrosion. 

It's all a matter of aesthetics. But 
if you look at photographs of the 
statue taken in the 1960s, vou will 
see that the patina was uniformly 
green. Today, there is a variation in 
the shades of green with dark 
green on high areas such as the 
nose and cheeks and light green in 
deep areas such as the eyes and 
below the lips. These color patterns 
correspond to different mixtures of 
copper minerals in the patina. 

It has been theorized that the 
changing color patterns are the 
result of chemical conversions 
caused bv acid rain, which has be- 
come more acidic in the northeast 
United States during the last 20 or 
30 years. 

The National Park Service want- 
ed to know what was happening to 
the surface of our Statue of Liberty, 
so thev called in College Park's 
Richard A. Livingston to investi- 
gate. Livingston is a Department of 
Geology research fellow who spe- 
cializes in architectural conserva- 
tion science. He has served as a 
consultant for such structures as 
the Taj Mahal, the sphinx and the 
Washington National Cathedral. 

Livingston developed a mathe- 
matical model using geochemical 
principles to predict which copper 



minerals would be stable, given 
different rainwater and atmo- 
spheric chemical conditions. The 
minerals predicted in the model 
actually matched the chemistry of 
New York air and rainwater. 

Livingston found that air quality 
in New York City is better now 
than it was 20 years ago — the posi- 
tive result of emission controls 
placed on fuel oil and coal since 
the 1970s, The cleaner air has, in 
fact, made color patterns more pro- 
minent on the statue because of 
reduced sulfur dioxide in the atmo- 
sphere. 

"The color patterns appear to be 
due to the prevailing winds which 
determine where rainwater contacts 
tin. 1 statue," i ivingston snvs. Where 
there is less rain contact, salt spray 
has a greater influence on patina 
shade. In the past, greater concen- 
trations of sulfur dioxide domin- 
ated other effects such as seawater, 
causing a uniform color in the pati- 
na. According to Livingston, the 
cleaner air and rainwater in New 
York allows the sea salt to influ- 
ence areas that receive less rain, 
and the patina thus develops vari- 
ous shades of green. 

Livingston has concluded that 
the Statue of Liberty does not ap- 
pear to be threatened bv acid rain, 
"It appears that the statue will sur- 
vive for several more centuries," he 
says.

Systems Research Center Offers New Series of Technical Books 



The Systems Research Center 
(SRC) and Springer-Verlag, a scien- 
tific and technical book publisher, 
have announced publication of a 
new series called Progress in Auto- 
mation and Information Systems. 

The goal of this series is to pro- 
vide rapid dissemination of advan- 
ces and discoveries in automation 
and information engineering to the 
academic and industrial engineer- 
ing and scientific community. Both 
research and development as well 
as education will be covered. Indi- 
vidual volumes will cover work- 
shop proceedings, specific research 



advances, and short courses as well 
as modeling, computational meth- 
ods and real-life applications. 

The first volume in the series is 
Recent Advances in Stochastic Cal- 
culus edited by SRC director John 
Baras and V, Mirelli. The book, 
released in July, assembles all the 
most recent advances and presents 
both their theoretical aspects and 
engineering applications. It is the 
first time this information has ap- 
peared in book form, accessible to 
the engineering audience. 

The SRC was founded with sup- 
port from the National Science 



Foundation with the goal of pro- 
moting and facilitating research 
and education in the integrated 
design of automation and informa- 
tion systems. 

The new series will emphasize 
such areas as intelligent servo- 
mechanisms including aircraft, 
spacecraft, and robotic mani- 
pulators; chemical process systems 
such as reactors and whole plants; 
communication and data network 
systems; manufacturing systems, 
and system intelligence and archi- 
tecture.

Students Participate in 
USSR Exchange Program 

This summer several University 
of Maryland at College Park stu- 
dents went to the Timiryazev Agri- 
cultural Academy in Moscow for a 
cultural /educational exchange. The 
students, who had varied back- 
grounds and interests such as gov- 
ernment and politics, journalism, 
computer science, and agriculture, 
spent five weeks touring cultural 
sights in Moscow, visiting state and 
cooperative farms, hearing lectures 
on agriculture and economics, and 
travelling through the Soviet 
Union.
