USAID Funds New Center to Encourage 
Competitive Markets and Democratic Processes 

The University of Maryland at 
College Park has signed a coopera- 
tive agreement with the United 
States Agency for International 
Development (USAID) to create the 
Institutional Reform and the Infor- 
mal Sector (IRIS) Center at College 

Reform of the institutions and 
economies of developing nations 
and countries in Eastern Europe 
will be the focus of the new project. 

USAID support for the five-year 
project is expected to total more 
than $25 million. The agreement, 
signed Thursday, Nov. 15 at a cere- 
mony in Washington, D.C. at the 
Senate Foreign Relations Hearing 
Room by University President Wil- 
liam E. Kirwan and USAID Admin- 
istrator Ronald W. Roskens, is for 
$8.9 million. The IRIS project antici- 
pates receiving up to $16.1 million 
in additional funding from USAID 
regional bureaus and overseas mis- 
sions during the next five years. It 
is one of the largest grants ever 
received by the university. 

The main goal of IRIS is to sup- 
port institutional reforms that en- 
hance competitive markets and 
democratic processes in developing 
countries and those nations in East- 
ern Europe that are abandoning

centrally-planned economies, notes 
Mancur Olson, Distinguished Pro- 
fessor of Economics at College Park 
and the project's Principal Investi- 

"Both economic and political 
development depend on an 
improved knowledge of institutions 
and better choices among alterna- 
tive institutional arrangements," 
Olson says. 'The project will 
analyze institutions as well as pro- 
vide education and technical assis- 
tance to improve the evolution of 
those institutions and encourage 
steps toward competitive markets 
and democratic policies in Eastern 
Europe and in the Third World." 

IRIS will provide collaborative 
research, training and technical 
support to identify the legal and 
administrative constraints to mar- 
ket growth and effective demo- 
cratic processes, Olson says. It is 
designed to promote better laws 
and institutions which will facili- 
tate broad -based private sec tor- led 
economic growth. The aim of IRIS 
is to create an environment to 
allow the market svstem to work 
for everyone, particularly those 
who have traditionally been 
excluded from economic growth 
because thev lacked the benefits of 

the formal economy. 

"The IRIS project will be an im- 
portant international research cen- 
ter focusing on the growing field of 
new institutional economics," says 
Kirwan. "IRIS is an idea that brings 
new attention and solutions to very 
difficult development problems. As 
the largest research university in 
the national capital area, the uni- 
versity is moving aggressively to 
meet our international responsibili- 
ties and promote our overseas op- 
portunities," Kirwan says, noting

Next Year's Asking Budget— A 
Retrenchment Budget At Best 

The UM Board of Regents has 
approved the university's FY 1992 
asking budget. And for the first 
time in many years, it does not 
reflect any increase in state general 
fund support. If the Current People 
Services (CPS) budget request is 
approved as it now stands — with- 
out any additional revenues 
requested through the Over the 
CPS Budget— College Park will 
receive an increase of just 
$375,054 — a bare . 1 percent above 
the current year's working budget. 

Almost every aspect of the 
budget process has been unusual 
this year. In August the regents ap- 
proved the university's first budget 
request. However, on August 31, 
due to a projected downturn in the 
state's economy, the governor 
mandated a cost containment plan 
for all state agencies for the current 
fiscal year, asking for a reduction 
of six percent in the university's 
current operating budget. This 
amounted to a $14.5 million reduc- 
tion in this year's operating budget 
for College Park. 

Shortly after, state agencies were 
instructed to adopt an extremely 
conservative approach in preparing 
a revised FY 1992 budget request 
and to incorporate the six percent 

cost containment plan into the next 
year's request. 

As a result, College Park's ask- 
ing budget for the State-Supported 
Program totals $338,801,314 for FY 
1992. Of this, $227.9 million is in 
General Funds, $103,2 in Special 
Funds, and $7.6 million — a 19 per- 
cent increase over last year — in 
Federal Funds. This represents ap- 
proximately 39.3 percent in funding 
support to the campus from state 
appropriations, as compared to 40 
percent in FY 91, and 43.2 percent 
of total state support in FY 90. 

The request contains a 
mandatory classified salary incre- 
ment of 2 percent. No merit 
increases are requested for faculty 
and professional staff; however, the 
Over the CPS Budget requests a 
four percent merit increase. 

The asking budget calls for a 
four percent tuition increase for in- 
state students (a two percent cut 
from the six percent originally pro- 
posed but not approved by the 
Board of Regents). It also requests 
a 15 percent tuition hike for non- 
state undergraduates and a 12 per- 
cent increase for graduate students.

Two New Services Offered During 
McKeldin Library Closing and Move 

The Libraries staff are attempt- 
ing to minimize inconvenience to 
users resulting from the temporary 
closing for renovation of McKeldin 
Library between Dec. 22, 1990 and 
Jan. 22, 1991 by offering two spe- 
cial services, an extended loan 
period and faculty mail renewals. 

Extended Loan Period: Since 
Oct. 16, 1990, borrowers have been 
given an extended loan period of 
98 days (14 weeks) for most circu- 
lating materials from any of the 
university Libraries, except Horn- 
bake Library, which will continue 
to have 28-day loans. All borrowers 
are eligible for the extended loans 
except for faculty, who already are 
given extended loans. 

The extended loan period does 
not affect recalls, and any circulat- 
ing item may be recalled during 
this time. If someone asks for an 
item charged within the extended 
loan period, the borrower's due 
date may be shortened and the 
item's return requested by mail. 

Regular loan periods will 
resume ]an. 2, 1991. 

Faculty Mail Renewals: Since 
Oct. 16, permanent university 
faculty members have been able, if 
they choose, to renew library 
materials by mail. To do this, the 
borrower must make a photocopy 
of the front cover of each book that 
is to be renewed, making sure that 
the barcode is copied clearly. The 
photocopy along with a self- 

addressed envelope should be sent 
to the circulation desk of the uni- 
versity library most frequently 
used by the borrower. When the 
request is received, circulation staff 
will update automated files — -if 
possible — and return the photocopy 
with a new due date stamped on it. 
The returned copy will be the bor- 
rower's proof of the renewal. 

Requests for renewal of certain 
materials, such as an item that is 
required for a course reserve or 
one that has had a hold put on it 
for use by another library patron, 
may be denied. In these cases, staff 
will return the photocopy to the 
borrower, noting that the request 
cannot be filled. 

This service applies only to 
books from campus Libraries bor- 
rowed by College Park faculty. Par- 
ticipating libraries include: Archi- 
tecture, Art, Engineering and 
Physical Sciences (EPSL), 
McKeldin, Music and White 
Memorial {Chemistry). 

The service does not apply to 
Hornbake Library books or to spe- 
cial collections material, such as 
N on print Media items, course 
reserve collections, Music Library 
compact disks or EPSL technical 

For more information on these 
two services, ask circulation staff in 
any university library or call

for public services, at 403-4184, 

McKeldin Library will be closed from Dec. 22, 1990 to Jan. 22, 1991 

Board of Regents Approve FY '92 Asking Budget 

continued from page t 

Mandatory increases in salaries, 
inflation, and other expenses, com- 
bined with no increase in this 
year's general funds appropriation 
level, will require that the fourth 
year of the undergraduate enroll- 
ment reduction plan at College 
Park be put on hold next year. 

Revenue from the proposed tui- 
tion increase, and other reallocation 
of funds will help support contin- 
uation of the following enhance- 
ment initiatives, including: 

• Key-Banneker Scholarships, 

•Access to courses, $250,000; 

•Continued upgrading of 
administrative computing, $340,000; 

•Restoration of cuts to out-of- 
state travel, $600,000; and 

•Motor vehicles, $430,000. 

Any substantial progress that 
College Park would hope to 
achieve in its enhancement plans 
next year could only be accom- 
plished if initiatives in the Over the 
CPS Budget Request were to be 
looked upon favorably by the gov- 
ernor and legislature. The Over the 
CPS Request is prepared to meet 
general needs and enhancement 

initiatives of the university, items 
not contained within the CPS 
request. The Over the CPS Request, 
approved by the Board of Regents, 
places great emphasis on funding 
College Park as the flagship univer- 
sity. It contains a $22.8 million re- 
quest and 91 new positions to sup- 
port current needs of College Park, 

• Funding for new facilities com- 
ing on line, $2.4 million; 

•Leveraging new facilities, $1.7 

•Enhancement of academic pro- 
grams, $9.6 million, to enrich un- 
dergraduate education, reduce stu- 
dent/faculty ratios and introduce 
new courses for freshmen; recruit 
and retain outstanding high school 
students, enhance diversity initia- 
tives and improve minority partici- 
pation at the graduate level, imple- 
ment new initiatives in the scien- 
ces, expand public service, particu- 
larly in agriculture and engineer- 
ing, and enhance the effectiveness 
of administration. 

•Downsizing — -$1.4 million to 
continue the fourth year of the 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; 

•Access to veterinary medicine, 

•Four percent merit salary ad- 
justments, $4.7 million; and 

•Extending the facilities renewal 
program, $2.2 million. 

What are the chances that some 
of these critical Over the CPS items 
wilt be funded? Not much, if the 
current state of economic 
affairs — not only in the state of 
Maryland, but on the federal level 
as well — continues. 

The university, meanwhile, is 
looking to increased federal and 
private support to keep the current 
momentum going. And it is await- 
ing the governor's budget presenta- 
tion and the legislature's response 
next spring.

Funding Renewed for Journalism's Knight Center 

The Knight Foundation has approved a grant of $832,734 to 
the College of Journalism to renew funding of the Knight Center 
for Specialized journalism for three years. Established at College 
Park in 1987, the center offers four or five courses annually 
designed to improve the reporting skills of journalists covering 
complex, specialized fields. Nine courses of one- and two-week 
duration have brought 224 journalists to the university as Knight 
Center Fellows to study issues of nuclear power, business, finance 
and economics, cancer, U.S. demography, biotechnology and the 
war on drugs. 

Criminologists Explore Issues of 
White-Collar Crime Reporting 

As society has changed, so has 
the concept of crime. 

"Increasingly, public opinion 
polls have demonstrated that the 
general public has come to recog- 
nize the importance of white-collar 
crime and to demand government 
action to prevent and control it," 
says Charles Wei! ford, director of 
the university's Institute of Crim- 
inal justice and Criminology. 
Weltford is the co-author, along 
with Barton lngraham of the Insti- 
tute of Criminal lust ice and Crim- 
inology, of a recent paper entitled, 
"Toward a National Uniform 
White-Collar Crime Reporting Sys- 

Wellford and lngraham propose 
a tripartite division of the concept 
of white collar crime into such cat- 
egories as business and profes- 
sional crimes, occupational crimes, 
and individual frauds. 

In using the tripartite division, 
the government would be able to 
make a distinction between how 
much crime is being committed 
every year by businesses, the pro- 
fessions (as organizations) and pol- 
itical groups, and how much is 
being committed against them and 
also against the general public by 
persons within their ranks, say 
Wellford and lngraham. 

Wellford and lngraham say that 
if there is to be a national uniform 
white-collar crime reporting sys- 
tem, it will have to be one based 
primarily on data from federal 
agencies and will have to move 
beyond the current efforts to count 
arrests and prosecutions under fed- 
eral criminal statutes and use up- 
dated definitions. 

"The Securities and Exchange 
Commission, the Internal Revenue 
Service, the Office of the Comp- 
troller General, and the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation all have 
developed sophisticated manage- 
ment information systems to track 
matters that are referred to them," 
say Wellford and lngraham. "And 
each of these agencies has a 
primary involvement in the white- 
collar crime area. These agencies 

provide us with an opportunity to 
move beyond arrests or prosecu- 
tions in estimating the extent of 
white-collar crime." 

They also suggest that the 
Bureau of Justice Statistics should 
encourage states to develop state 
uniform white-collar crime report- 
ing systems. 

"The report observes that the 
program of a national white-collar 
crime reporting system, limited as 
it would be, would be of significant 
benefit to understanding this type 
of crime and would open up a vast 
area for further research on trends 
and developments in white-collar 
crime activities," they say. 

Over 50 years ago, Edwin 
Sutherland, a major figure in 
American criminology, introduced 
the concept of white-collar crime to 
criminal justice officials, criminolo- 
gists, and the public. 

"Since that time," the authors 
observe, "the concept has become 
an integral part of criminological 
research and frequently, in recent 
years, has been an area of crime of 
intense interest to policy makers 
and the public." 

Sutherland stressed that crime in 
the United States was not exclus- 
ively a lower-class phenomenon 
caused by poverty and social con- 
ditions that accompany poverty, 
but rather that there was a vast 
amount of unrecorded crime com- 
mitted by wealthy, highly respect- 
ed individuals and by the busi- 
nesses and industries they owned 
or controlled. 

Wellford and lngraham contend 
that "when crimes are committed 
by corporations, it often becomes 
extremely difficult to pinpoint 
where in the hierarchy responsibil- 
ity for the crime rests. Often it has 
been found to rest at middle levels 
of management rather than in the 
corporate boardroom." 

"The absence of a national uni- 
form white-collar crime reporting 
system has hampered our ability to 
understand the phenomenon, and 
to develop appropriate strategies 
for its prevention and control." 

The two say this report was the 
result of a request by the Bureau of 
Justice Statistics to the institute to 
help determine whether such a sys- 
tem is feasible at this time. 

In this paper, Wellford and ln- 
graham state that the academic/ 
criminological conception of white- 
collar crime, derived from the sem- 
inal work of Sutherland but greatly 
elaborated on since then by succes- 
sors, seems to have as its core the 
commission of non-violent illegal 
activity within an organizational 
context by individuals who do not 
normally regard themselves as 
criminals because most of their 
time is spent in legitimate 

"Nevertheless," they state, "there 
is a continuing ambiguity about the 
extent to which the crime must 
necessarily be committed within 
the context of an organization, and 
if it is, whether the offense must be 
committed for the organization or 
can also be committed against it." 

"Thus," they add, "the concept 
has expanded to include many eco- 
nomic crimes that wctc not origi- 
nally within the scope of what 
Sutherland considered 'white-collar 

The FBI lists as "white-collar 
crime" such illegal activities as 
fraud, embezzlement, forgery, 
counterfeiting and regulatory offen- 
ses such as customs violations and 
general export of restricted defense 
materials and information, but not 
drug import and export violations. 

In the report Wellford and 
lngraham state that the law en- 
forcement community now views 
white-collar crime as virtually any 
nonviolent crime committed for 
financial gain or personal advance- 
ment by persons whose occupa- 
tional status is entrepreneurial, pro- 
fessional or semi-professional, and 
sometimes by persons of no legiti- 
mate occupation or profession.

University Theatre Will Present 
Agnes or God' 



University Theatre will present a 
play of "words, thoughts, feelings 
and miracles" with its presentation 
of "Agnes of God" beginning Nov. 
27 in the Rudolph E. Pugliese 

"Agnes of God," written by John 
Pielmeier, deals with an investiga- 
tion into the death of a baby in a 
convent. The mother, a novice nun 
named Agnes, is accused of mur- 
dering the child, and a court- 
appointed psychiatrist comes to the 
convent to examine the girl. 

The play focuses almost entirely 
on the interaction between the nov- 
ice, the psychiatrist and the mother 
superior as the outsider attempts to 
unravel the mystery within the 
cloistered environment of the con- 
vent. Through this interaction, the 
play explores complex emotional, 
theological, philosophical and psy- 
chological issues, says director Kate 
Ufema, assistant professor of 

Ufema's production uses mini- 
ma) scenery and staging effects to 
highlight psychological drama. 
Three senior undergraduates play 


the major roles. Suzan Stacy, a 
theatre and speech communication 
major, plays the mother superior; 
Jennifer Holland, a journalism 
major, is the psychiatrist; and 
Patricia Luther, an Asian studies 
major, is Agnes. 

Performances of the show are 
Nov. 27- Dec. 2 and Dec. 4-Dec. 9.

Gallery Shows 
Diebenkorn Work 

The acclaimed etchings of artist 
Richard Diebenkorn are the high- 
light of a multi-faceted exhibition 
currently on display in the Art Gal- 

A series of 41 etchings by 
Diebenkorn are featured along with 
selected paintings by Maryland ar- 
tist Mark Dassoulas and contempo- 
rary prints from the gallery's per- 
manent collection in a show that 
runs through Dec. 20. 

Diebenkorn is best known for 
his ongoing series of "Ocean Park" 
paintings, a project he began in 
1965. The etchings in the current 
exhibit were produced just prior to 
the start of the "Ocean Park" series, 
and the figurative and abstract 
compositional techniques used in 
them pre-figure the later work, ac- 
cording to associate gallery director 
Cynthia Wayne. 

The exhibit also features recent 
paintings by Mark Dassoulas. The 
new body of work represents 
something of a departure for the 
Maryland artist. In the paintings, 
he breaks from his previous super- 
realistic subject matter to explore 
human figures from a more spiritu- 
al point of view, Wayne says. 

Also on view in the exhibit are a 
selection of prints by contemporary 
artists Lowell Nesbitt, Larry Rivers, 
Chryssa and Friedensreich, These 
works are from the gallery's per- 
manent collection. 

The gallery is located in the 
Art/Sociology Building and is open 
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday, 
Wednesday until 9 p.m. and Satur- 
day and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5

Fey Proposes Improvements in 
Math Education 

American mathematics students 
spend too much time doing calcu- 
lations, and not enough time learn- 
ing how to use those calculations 
creatively to solve meaningful 
problems, says James Fey, profes- 
sor of curriculum and instruction 
and mathematics. Fev wrote a 
chapter on improving mathematics 
education in the area of quantity 
for the recently published book. On 
the Shoulders of Gin tits: New Ap- 
proaches to Numeracy. 

The book, published by the Na- 
tional Academy of Sciences, con- 
sists of six chapters bv prominent 
mathematics scholars who propose 
new approaches to tomorrow's 
mathematics curriculum. 

"Schools need to reallocate the 
time students are required to spend 
on procedural and predictable 
mathematics such as computations, 
and begin to use that time for more 
advanced and creative math with 
more practical applications," says 

He believes the way to do this is 
to not resist computers and calcula- 
tors, but to use them where they 
are most effective, such as for 
"number crunching" large amounts 
of data such as census information 
or inflation trends. 

"It no longer makes sense to de- 
vote large portions of the school 
curriculum to training students in 
arithmetic or algebraic algorithms 
that can be performed quickly and 
accurately by low-cost and conven- 
ient calculators," Fey writes. 

"In the world outside of school, 
almost everyone relies on calcula- 
tors and computers for fast and ac- 
curate computation. But school cur- 
ricula have yet to change signifi- 
cantly in response to these new 
conditions," he says. 

Fey believes that many students 
are capable of learning and apply- 
ing more advanced and creative 
math concepts long before they 
master the Riles for manipulating 
those expressions; but they must be 

given the instruction and techno- 
logical tools to do so, he says. 

"School mathematics must pre- 
pare students to use their know- 
ledge of numbers, algebra, and 
measurement in flexible and crea- 
tive ways — not only in routine, 
predictable calculations," he con- 
cludes. This, Fey believes, could 
help more students to develop an 
interest in math, and may even 
help teachers to identify those stu- 
dents with exceptional math 
reasoning skills who would other- 
wise be lost in a web of boring cal- 

Fey holds a doctoral degree in 
mathematics education from 
Columbia University. At College 
Park, he teaches mathematics con- 
tent and methods courses. For the 
past ten years his research has 
focused on the development of cur- 
ricula that use calculators and com- 
puters as learning and problem- 
solving tools.

Turf Research Aids $ 1 Billion Industry 

At the Maryland Agricultural 
Experiment Station's Cherry Hill 
Facility, the subject of interest is a 
product that is planted on as many 
Maryland acres as corn — one that 
generates nearly SI billion in rev- 
enue and one that thrives on in- 
creasing urbanization. The subject; 
turf grass. 

Mary landers spend about £680 
million per year for turf mainten- 
ance on golf courses, athletic fields 
and professional lawn care, accord- 
ing to Peter Dernoeden, associate 
professor of agronomy. That figure 
does not include the millions spent 
annually on lawn care by do-it- 
yourselfers, nor the millions spent 
on equipment for professional 

Dernoeden's area of research 

interest is turf weed and disease 
management. He notes that Mary- 
land turf researchers were the first 
in the East to discover the causal 
agents of spring dead-spot disease 
of Bermuda grass and take-all dis- 
ease of creeping bentgrass. 

They also were the first in the 
United States to use and test num- 
erous herbicides and fungicides 
that provide improved weed and 
disease control, at reduced rates or 
reduced application frequencies. 

Dernoeden's research now is 
concentrated on decreasing pesti- 
cide use through integrated pest 
management (IPM) — using factors 
such as mowing height, fertility 
and irrigation practices to control 
weeds and disease. 

He notes, for example, that take- 

all disease can be suppressed by 
applying acidifying fertilizers. An 
1PM approach also works for sum- 
mer patch, the number one disease 
in Maryland home lawns and one 
that wiped out Kentucky bluegrass 
from golf fairways in the Balti- 
more-Washington area. 

"We found that summer patch 
could be managed on home lawns 
without using fungicides," 
Dernoeden says. "By increasing 
mowing heights to three inches, 
irrigating deeply at the onset of 
drought stress to at least six inches, 
and by applying slow-release nitro- 
gen fertilizer, we could reduce the 
severity of summer patch by 80

Business School's Graduate Program at 
Shady Grove Gets Good Marks 

With an enrollment of 31 stu- 
dents this semester, the College of 
Business and Management's MBA 
program at Shady Grove is off to a 
very strong start. Even the lengthy 
process of obtaining final approval 
from the Maryland Higher Educa- 
tion Council, which forced the col- 
lege into a hurried advertising 
campaign last spring, failed to keep 
the program from beginning on 
schedule. And according to MBA 
Director Mark Wellman, Shady 
Grove students' GMAT scores (all 
must take the national Graduate 
Management Admission Test be- 
fore applying to the Maryland 
MBA program) are in the 87th 


The response to the Shady 
Grove program has been over- 
whelmingly positive, Wellman 
says. "We have had hundreds of 
inquiries about it since it was first 
announced, I believe its success is 
due mainly to the fact that the new 
program is of the same quality as 
the one offered to College Park stu- 
dents, and that it is taught by Col- 
lege Park faculty. The only differ- 
ence is that it is part-time because 
nearly alt Shady Grove students 
have full-time jobs." 

The Shady Grove program was 
developed as a result of a study 
conducted in 1988 by the university 

and the Montgomery County High 
Technology Council. The survey of 
county residents — 43 percent of 
whom hold college degrees — 
indicated by a two-to-one margin 
that respondents would be interest- 
ed in enrolling in a business 
management program over any 
other graduate curriculum. 

In two years, the Maryland 
MBA Program at Shady Grove will 
move into a new facility now being 
constructed to house several uni- 
versity programs. This 45,000- 
square foot office building is locat- 
ed on 50 acres alongside Interstate

Klumpp Brings Order out of Chaos 

Outlook is nominating Associate 
Professor of Speech Communica- 
tion James Klumpp as the unsung 
hero of the Campus Senate. As 
Senate Parliamentarian, he always 
sits next to the chair, providing in- 
stant and expert advice on proce- 
dure. His most recent contribution, 
the definitive document, "Some 
Basics of Parliamentary Procedure," 
was prepared for the senate in the 
fall of 1990. Anyone interested in 
Robert's Rules or parliamentary 
procedure, and especially anyone 

involved as an official in running 
an organization, would benefit by 
having a copy. The nine- page 
Klumpp text outlines everything 
you ever wanted to know about 
Robert's Rules, Newly Revised. 
Klumpp's work rivals the original 
for clarity and authority— and has 
the virtue of being a good deal 
shorter than the 500-plus pages of 
its precursor. Call the senate office 
at 405-5805 if you would like a
