FEBRUARY 11, 1991 

University's International House 
Will Open in the Fall 

Dorchester International House, 
a residence hall and multicultural 
center, will open its doors to the 
University of Maryland at College 
Park community this fall, 

"Living with a diverse group 
helps students develop understand- 
ing and appreciation for global and 
multi-cultural issues," says Susan 
Gate, International Program Speci- 
alist with International Education 
Services and the International 
House's program coordinator. 

The International House is the 
result of several years of work by 
such organizations as the Learning 
Assistance Service, the Maryland 
English Institute, International Edu- 
cation Services, Resident Life, the 
Office of International Affairs, the 
Office of Human Relations, Student 
Affairs Office, the Language House, 
International Referral Network, and 
Administrative Operations. 
Women and men from over 140 
countries are eligible to live in the 
newly-renovated residence hall. 
There will be a mix of American and 
international students. 

Located in the center of campus 
next to St, Mary's Hall Language 
Htjuse, the co-ed residence hall will 
house approximately 163 under- 
graduate students in traditional 
dormitory rooms. 


At a press conference on Feb. 6 
Gov. William Donald Schaefer 
made a surprise announcement 
that caught even his staff off 
guard. He announced 
that his Executive Order calling 
for a 40-hour work week would 
be rescinded Immediately. 

Although he left open the 
possibility that It could be Im- 
posed as of July 1, he indicated 
that the state would be consider- 
ing other options. 

Outlook will keep you informed 
on further developments. 

Unlike the Language House, how- 
ever, the focus is not on language 
acquisition; foreign language ability 
is not required to live in the Inter- 
national House, says Gate. 

"With its mixture of American 
and international students, the 
International House will provide an 
environment which will foster un- 
derstanding, cooperation and 
friendship among its residents who 
represent a wide range of ethnic and 
cultural backgrounds," says Gate, 

Internationa! I louse residents 
will work with Gate, the interna- 
tional programmer, and staff and 
faculty to develop and implement 
educational and social programs 
such as international speakers, field 
trips, coffee hours and cultural 
theme nights. 

Short-term resident faculty and 
international visitors will add to the 
diversity of the community and the 
large, newly-renovated public areas 
will encourage informal exchange 
between students and the campus 
and local community, says Gate. 

Like other specialty halls that 
have more than the usual expecta- 
tion from their residents. Interna- 
tional House will have an admission 
committee to screen applicants and 
admit only those students likely to 
take advantage of rich opportunities

Senate Hears Good News About 
Undergraduate Education 

By Kathryn Mohrman, 

Dean of Undergraduate Studies 

On Feb. 7, Kathryn Mohrimn ad- 
dressed the Campus Senate. The fol- 
Ivxinng is the text of her remarks. 

While all the bad news about the 
budget is discouraging, we can take 
heart in some good news about 
undergraduate education at GoUege 
Park. We have evidence on this 
campus that a research university 
can strengthen its scholarly 
productivity, recruit outstanding 
faculty, and also improve its educa- 
tional programs. Let me give you 
eleven facts that make me optimis- 
tic. We liave much to be proud of in 
our efforts to enhance academic 
programs on campus. 

Fact #1: More than 70 percent of 
all GORE courses this year are 
being taught by tenured and ten- 
ure track faculty. The biggest issue 
in undergraduate education is the 
implementation of the general edu- 
cation program called for in the 
Pease Report. This year's first year 
students are required to enroll in 
the GORE program (Core Liberal 

Arts and Sciences Studies), a signif- 
icant improvement over the USP 
program. The prevailing wisdom 
about general education is that most 
of the courses are taught by 
graduate students and adjunct fac- 
ulty; the reality is that the vast maj- 
ority are being taught by full-time 
tenure track faculty. And, in addi- 
tion to contact with our regular 
professors, freshmen are in a cur- 
riculum that empliasizes writing, 
discussion, essay exams, and other 
methods of encouraging active 
learning by undergraduates. 

Fact #2: The average size of 
Distributive Studies courses in the 
CORE programs for fall 1990 was 
27.4 students per section. Another 
piece of campus mythology is that 
all freshman classes are huge. Not 
so. We are serious about giving 
entering students a chance to know 
their professors, and smaller classes 
are one of the best ways to ensure 
that personal contact. This is not to 
say, however, that the freshman 
experience looks like Swarthmore 
College. We still have large lecture

Service to Commuters Award 

The Office of Commuter Affairs seeks nominations for its 1991 
Award for Outstanding Service to Commuter Students. The annual 
award recognizes an undergraduate or graduate student who has 
made outstanding contributions to the quaHty of life for College 
Park commuter students during the academic year. Nomination

U.S. -Soviet Project for Women in 
International Security Initiated 

In an effort to seek out Soviet 
women specializing in international 
security, the Center for International 
Security Studies at Maryland's 
program on Women In International 
Security (WHS) sent an eight- 
woman delegation to Moscow last 

The group met with scholars at 
the Soviet Institutes of Ethnogra- 
phy, U.S.A. and Canada, State and 
Law, and World Economy and In- 
ternational Relations, as well as 
with experts from the newly organ- 
ized Committee of Soviet Women 
and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 
They also sponsored a day-long 
workshop on the role of women in 
international relations that involved 
prominent women leaders from a 
wide spectrum of Soviet profes- 
sional life. 

The project emerged from the 
concern of WHS president Catherine 
Kelleher and Soviet scholar Gale 
Lapidus of the University of 
California at Berkeley that, while 
gla<i>wsl had significantly expanded 
contacts between American and 
Soviet experts on international 

security issues, women rarely were 
included on Soviet delegations or at 
seminars or conferences. They 
began to look for ways to identify 
qualified Soviet women and to en- 
courage them to participate in new- 
ly arising opportunities for research 
travel and exchange. 

Their efforts converged with 
those of Rose Gottemoeller, a Rand 
Corporation researcher specializing 
in Soviet miUtary policy. She and 
other American women working on 
Soviet Issues had planned a group 
research trip to demonstrate to the 
Soviets the high-level involvement 
of women in security issues. 

With a $17,300 grant to WHS 
from the John D, and Catherine T. 
MacArthur Foundation, the two 
groups became the WHS- U.S. -Soviet 
Project. In addition to increasing 
contacts with Soviet women 
scholars, the project aimed to 
enlarge mutual research opportun- 
ities for women and increase their 
access to the research and policy 

Frances Burwell, WHS executive 
director, says the delegation iden- 

tified scores of outstanding Soviet 
women scholars and met personally 
with more than 80 of them. 
However, she adds, "Soviet women 
made it clear that serious barriers 
remained before them. The eco- 
nomic reforms have made life dif- 
ficult for all Soviet scholars by 
sharply cutting back funding for 
research institutes. Women u,sually 
hold lower ranking positions, and 
so their research assignments often 
reflect secondary approaches to the 
study of peace and security." 

Women scholars also carry an 
extra burden, Burwell notes. "They 
are the ones who stand in line at the 
stores; they are the ones responsible 
for all household chores and family 

WHS plans a number of follow- 
up activities, among them a dedicat- 
ed information exchange, an effort 
to assist Soviet scholars in present- 
ing and publishing papers in the 
U.S., and a continuing program to 
involve Soviets in WHS outreach, 
including the possible founding of a 
WHS chapter in Moscow,

Comment on the 'Pay Reduction Plan' 

To the Editor of Outlook: 

Why should we call Governor 
Schaefer's first Executive Order of 
1991 (#1.01.91) the Mandate for a 40- 
hour Work Week? The so-called "40- 
hour week" is a neat exercise in 
newspeak mystification which pulls 
attention away from the gross in- 
equities of this Order and tend to 
make those of us who are opposed 
to it sound like knee-jerk wallers 
and complainers, particularly to 
those in Annapolis who write off 
the College Park campus as one big 

Such is the power of language! A 
"40-hour work week" sounds like an 
equitable adjustment responding 
sensibly to the budget crisis pre- 

cisely because it glides over who 
will hear the burden of this and 
how. 1 propose instead calling this 
the "Elective Pay Reduction Plan." 
Now that comes a bit closer to accu- 
rately naming what's at issue here. 
One thousand nine hundred and 
ten non-hourly employees of 
the College Park Campus are being 
given five weeks notice that their 
hourly wage is being reduced by 
more than 1 1 percent. No less than 
82 percent of those who will be 
inequitably dunned by this pay 
reduction plan are women! And all 
of this to accomplish what? Even 
the purported budget savings, 
which might look OK on an 
accountant's ledger sheet, are being 

Snow Emergencies: 
Advice from Physical 

Although it's been a warm win- 
ter so far, there still could be some 
unpleasant winter storm surprises 
in store for our area. The Depart- 
ment of Physical Plant would like 
you to be aware of the following: 

•If the university is officially 
closed because of weather, do not 
come to campus unless you are 
designated by your department as 
"Essential Personnel." When the 
campus is closed, it is likely that its 
roads and sidewalks are unsafe or 
impassable, and car traffic hinders 
snow removal. If you are an essen- 
tial employee, note that priority is 
given to clearing lots 1, 11 a, VI, Kl 
and G3, The lower levels of the 
parking garages are also available. 

• I^f you notice unsanded or un- 
salted icv patches after a storm, call 
405-2222 or 405-3320 and crews will 
be dispatched as soon as possible to 


take care of them. 

•Be careful. The first three or 
four days after a snowfall are typi- 
cally the most treacherous because 
as your confidence returns, you are 
not as alert to icy patches underfoot. 
Don't take shortcuts in icy weather. 

•Expect fewer available parking 
spaces in your lot after a heavy 
snowfall. Hauling snow away is 
costly and beyond the campus' 
budget for snow removal. 

Physical Plant is responsible for 
some 160 acres of parking lots, 1 1 
miles of roads, 23 miles of sidewalks 
and several thousand exterior steps 
on the College Park campus. It'a big 
job, but with tons of sand, salt and 
de-icer stockpiled — and the 
cooperation of the campus 
community — they hope to be able to 
handle most winter weather condi- 

seriously challenged by people 

more savvy in these matters than I am. 

Although 1 commend the uni- 
versity administrators for their at- 
tempts to soften this blow, their 
actions arc largely an exercise in 
frustration since the regent's Jan. 24 
rubber-stamp approval of the gov- 
ernor's Order leave them with very 
little room to maneuver.

President of Police Foundation to Speak 

Black History Month includes many interesting events to watch 
for, among them the Institute of Criminal Justice and Criminology's 
guest lecture on Feb. 14, Hubert Williams, president of the Police 
Foundation, Washington, D.C., will speak on the rise and signifi- 
cance of African American contributions to the field of criminology. 
Williams headed one of the most progressive police departments in 
the nation, in Newark, N.J., from 1974 to 1985, and was founding 
president of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement 
Executives (NOBLE). He will speak Thursday at 7 p.m., room 2205, 
LeFrak Hall. For info, call 405-1689.

Undergraduate Progress

courses in CORE, but they ail have 
discussion or laboratory sections. 
And many of our general education 
courses, especially ones that involve 
extensive writing, have fewer than 
the average number of students. We 
alt realize, of course, that our 
budget problems may require us to 
rethink issues of class size; the 
Senate General Education 
Committee is doing just that. 

Fact #3: The Fall 1990 course 
availability situation was signifi- 
cantly better than ever before. A 
year ago The Battimorc Sun was tak- 
ing us to task for the problems un- 
dergraduates faced in getting the 
courses they needed and wanted. In 
response, the campus alkKated 
more than $1 million (in a difficult 
budget year) to increase the number 
of seats in both Distributive and 
Advanced Studies courses. With a 
great deal of thought and effort by a 
number of departments and 
colleges, the campus provided 
thousands of seats over the origin- 
ally planned offerings. As a result, 
summer orientation was the 
smoothest ever; freshmen even at 
the end of the registration period 
had good courses from which to 
choose. Not every student had a 
perfect curriculum, but he or she 
could make real choices rather than 
simply fill out the schedule. For the 
first time, we could expect students 
io plmi their general education 
program rather than merely fulfill 
requirements. While budget cuts 
will inevitably erode some of these 
gains, departments and colleges are 
working hard to maintain some of 
our progress on course availability. 

Fact #4 Our freshmen class 
continues to improve. In 1980, the 
average SAT score for English and 
Math combined was 81 points above 
the national average; in 1990 
College Park freshmen scored 1 87 
points above the national average. 
This .statistic demonstrates our ris- 
ing academic standards as well as 
our growing appeal to high quality 
students in Maryland and other 

Fact #5: Our transfers are im- 
proving, too. In the fall of 1987, the 
admissions office considered any 
student with a 2.0 GPA; today a 
transfer applicant must have a min- 
imum 2.7 GPA to be eligible. And in 
fact the Fall 1990 transfers had an 
average 2.97 GPA in their prior 
college courses. 

Fact #6: Almost 32 percent of our 
fiist year students are persons of 
color. We are proud of the growing 
diversity of our student body — a 
critical factor in achieving the goal 
of being a multi-culturak multi- 
racial community. The world of the 
future will be increasingly diverse 
and we at College Park are in the 
forefront of educating the leaders of 
all segments of that society. 

Fact #7: We now have 148 Ben- 
jamin Banneker and Francis Scott 
Key Scholarship students on cam- 
pus under our enhanced merit 
scholarship program. Their creden- 
tials are steadily increasing. Since 
the entering class of fall 1988, SAT 
scores have increased 35 points for 
the Banneker scholars and 28 points 
for the Key scholars. More and more 
of the top students are accepting our 
scholarship offer; yield rates for the 
fall 1990 class rose to 77 percent for 
the Banneker group and to 60 
percent for the Key group. And 
once they come, they stay. All of the 
scholars in this new program last 
year registered and returned for 
classes this fall 

Fact #8: Entering honors stu- 
dents are the most diverse ever. Of 
the students participating in honors 
orientation this summer, 27 percent 
were students of color. These high 
ability students included 10 percent 
African American, 14 percent Asian 
American, and 3 percent Latinos. 
The University Honors Program is 
clearly not the province only of 
middle class white students from 
the suburbs. 

Fact #9: The freshmen taking 
Honors 100 will contribute 2,6000 
hours of community service this 
year. A new addition to the honors 
curriculum this fall is Honors 100 
"Freshman Honors Colloquium." In 
addition to more traditional 
readings and discussions, all 265 
students in the course are expected 
to do at least 10 hours each of vol- 
unteer service in the university or 
the community. We believe that 
from those to whom much has been 
given, much also shall be expected. 

Fact #10: This past summer, all 
undecided and pre-business stu- 
dents received freshman advising 
from faculty advisors. The 1,500- 
plus students assigned to the Un- 
dergraduate Advising Center re- 
ceived the best kind of advising — 
close contact with a faculty member. 
Undecided students in particular 
need guidance as they begin their 
academic careers. For the first time 
ever, at! these students were 
assisted at summer orientation by 
an advising team comprised of a 
faculty member, a trained graduate 
student, and an undergraduate ori- 
entation advisor. Each member of 
the team played a vital role — the 
faculty member provided wisdom, 
perspective and mentoring; the 
graduate student knew the rules 
and regulations of the university; 
and the undergraduate suppUed a 
peer perspective. And each of the 23 
faculty members participating in 
summer orientation is personally 
advising 15 of these freshmen this 
year. We need the continuing co- 
operation of faculty to assist the 
undecided students most in need of 
faculty advising. 

Fact #11: More than 450 faculty 
members and teaching assistants 

have participated in campus clim- 
ate workshops over the last six 
months. If we are to make this a 
welcoming community for students 
from many backgrounds, we need 
to act according to our beliefs. Ad- 
ministered from the Human Rela- 
tions Office, the campus climate 
program has offered training to fac- 
ulty, staff, and graduate assistants 
on ways to work effectively with the 
growing diversity of our faculty and 
student body. All too often, 
individuals inadvertently offend 
others of different cultural 
backgrounds because of insensitiv- 
ity and thoughtlessness. Campus 
climate workshops in doz.ens of 
units have provided practical sug- 
gestions for improving life at Col- 
lege Park for everyone, 

Maryland is a national leader in 
strengthening the undergraduate 
mission in the context of the re- 
search university. Some of my facts 
were the result of enhancement 
funds, and they will obviously be 
scaled back in the new financial 
environment. But we can continue 
the others that don't cost a lot of 
money. 1 believe we have much to 
make us proud. So the next time the 
budget news gets you down, 
remember that good things are 
happening^and will continue to 
happen — at College Park.

Jankowski Found Plenty of Action 
During 20-Year Career at College Park 

Leonard B. Jankowski, director of 
the Department of Campus Parking, 
says he works in 2(l-year cycles. So, 
having given a few months more 
than his standard to College Park, 
his career here will come to a close 
later this month. 

jankowski joined the university 
community in 1970 to head the 
campus police force as assistant 
director of public safety. Fresh from 
20 years as a counter-intelligence 
officer for the U.S. Army and a 
veteran of service in Korea and 
Vietnam, the former lieutenant 
colonel anticipated a second career 
quieter than the first. 

"When [ left for work on my first 
day nt the uni\'ersity, a Monday 
morning, I told my wife that I'd be 
home by six, 1 figured there 
wouldn't be too much happening to 
keep a person in the office late," 
Jankowski savs. 

The estimate of working hours 
was a bit off, (lis first day on the job 
lasted more than 36 hours. 

On that day, March 23, 1970, 
87 persons occupied the Skinner 
Building as part of a protest against 
U.S. military involvement in Viet- 
nam. "1 didn't even know one build- 
ing from another," he says. 

However, jankowski's unfamili- 
aritv with the campus was not a 
particular problem during the inci- 
dent. His role in such a matter was 
destined to be limited, regardless of 

In 1970, the campus police force 
was essentially a unit of security 
guards who were required to call 
upon the state police in times of 
emergency. Jankowski had been 
hired mainly to coordinate training 
and recruitment programs designed 
to upgrade the force. College Park 
was then part of a national 
movement to create more profes- 
sional police forces on university 

The incident at the Skinner 
Building, and other crises later in 
the year, further illustrated the need 
for a highly trained police force 
located at the university. By 1975, 
through Jankowski's efforts, the 
force had more than doubled, was 
professionally trained, and held 
jurisdiction over the campus. 

In 1980, Jankowski switched jobs, 
but it was not a transfer to quieter 
pastures. He became the 
university's parking coordinator. 

When the director of the then- 
Motor Vehicle Administration be- 
came ill in July 1980, Jankowski was 
appointed as acting director. 
In May 1981, he was installed as 

Having left the police depart- 
ment in good order, Jankowski 
welcomed the new challenge. 

"I'm a roamer, I like new things. I 
saw parking as a tremendous ad- 
ministrative challenge," he says. 
"At that time we were anticipating 
big lasses of parking space due to 

const njction. Innovative techniques 
were going to be needed to deal 
with the resulting problems." 

Parking lots indeed did become 
construction sites, and jankowski 
became a visible, if often marked, 
man on campus. 

"One of my first 'sins' in the eyes 
of a lot of people was the intro- 
duction of faculty/staff parking 
fees," Jankowski says. 

Within a year of taking control of 
the department, Jankowski pro- 
posed a first-ever annual parking 
fee of $15 for facultv and staff. The 
cost of redesigning lots to cover 
construction losses forced the in- 
crease, he says. The alternative was 
to hike the parking fees of students 
into the stratosphere, an idea he 

An acclaimed friend of students 
on that occasion, at other times 
Jankowski was the butt of student 
complaints — -especially during the 
first three weeks of fall semester 
when the demand on student spaces 
is invariably highest, 

"Parking, unfortunately, has be- 
come less convenient on campus in 
the last ten years. As we've lost 
spaces at the center of the campus, 
we've added them at the perime- 
ters," he explains. 

Jankowski prides himself on the 
fact that parking spaces, though not 
always the most convenient, have 
always been available — often 
through creative reconfigurations of 
parking lots during summer ses- 
sions. His evidence of available 
parking: he's never lost the standing 
challenge that, at any time, he could 
take a student to an empty space 
somewhere on the campus. 

Parking is one of those areas that 
sometimes seem synonymous with 
trouble, but Jankowski is not one to 
dwell on past conflicts. Instead, he 
emphasizes recent changes in the 
parking program that have made 
life easier for university commuters. 
The transition to registration by 
mail has spared students long waits 
in line outside the parking offices 
each fall, he says. 

With its recent switch to hanging 
permits, the department registers 
individual drivers rather than their 
vehicles. The move has reduced 
parking lot traffic and offered the 
opportunity for savings to commut- 
ers with more than one car, he says. 

The appointment of "parking 
coordinators" in departments and 
offices has increased communica- 
tion between his department and 
the rest of the campus community. 
The program helps keep the parking 
staff abreast of the special needs and 
concerns of individual departments 
and makes it easier to distribute in- 
formation about the parking system, 
he says. 

As Jankowski looks forward to 
his next "20-year cycle," in which he 
plans to do some technical writing 
and consulting as well as "slow 

Leonard B. Jankowski 

down a bit," he will remember Col- 
lege Park warmly. 

"1 had a good time, and 1 grew a 
lot. Some might think that a man in 
his forties doesn't have much room 
to grow, but the students keep you 
sharp. I always found it enjoyable 
when I had a chance to talk with 
students. Every encounter was a 
learning experience, for myself — 
and I hope for them too," jankowski 

Brian Bitack 

Search Begins 
for Jankowski 

A search committee headed by 
Drury Bagwell, assistant vice presi- 
dent of student affairs, is reviewing 
candidates to succeed Leonard B. 
Jankowski as Director of Campus 
Parking, Jankowski will retire at the 
end of February after 20 years with 
the university. 

The position is being advertised 
nationally, and the committee's goal 
is to appoint a new director by late 
spring or early summer. 

The Director tif Campus Parking 
oversees operation of the more than 
16,000 parking spaces on campus. 
The department includes 35 full- 
time and 33-40 part-time employees. 

The search committee includes 
representatives from the College of 
Business and Management, Campus

Museum Makes Donations to Center 

Helen Bailey, president of the International Peace Museum in 
Washington, D.C. recently visited the College Park campus to do- 
nate $4,000 to the university's Center for International Development 
and Conflict Management (CIDCM). She is pictured with Abdel R. 
Omran, acting director of the Center for International Development 
and Conflict Management. In October Mrs. Bailey and the Peace 
Museum donated a library of over 600 books on peace to CIDCM. 

Historian Speaks to Maryland 
Legislators about Carroll Papers 

As most College Park faculty 
members w/ere tending to their first 
classes of the spring semester, 
Ronald Hoffman lectured to a Spe- 
cial Joint Session of the Maryland 
Statt" Legislature. 

Hoffman, professor of history, 
spoke to the state legislators and 
other officials, including Gov. Wil- 
liam Donald Schaefer, Jan. 23, dur- 
ing ceremonies for the opening of 
an exhibit of the Charles Carroll 
papers in the Rotunda of the Mary- 
land State House. Hoffman is the 
editor of the Carroll Papers Project. 

The exhibit, "A Priceless Legacy: 
Charles Carroll of Carroll ton's Pap- 
ers and the History of Maryland," 
focuses on one of the most powerfu 1 
and influential families in Maryland 

Using documents, letters, paint- 
ings, photographs and interpretive 

notes, the exhibit traces the Carrol Is 
from their roots in 17th century Ire- 
land to the ascendancy of the family 
in three generations to one of the 
wealthiest in Maryland. 

Charles Carroll of Carrollton, the 
focal point of the exhibit, was born 
in Annapolis in 1737. He was one of 
Maryland's four signers of the 
Declaration of Independence and 
helped draft the Maryland 
constitution and bill of rights. 

In part, the project is designed to 
educate the public about the im- 
portance of preserving, editing and 
publishing historical manu,scripts, 
Hoffman says. 

"Executing this assignment has 
proved to be one of the most de- 
manding challenges of my academic 
career," Hoffman told legislators. 

"Understanding what these rec- 
ords hold is one thing, [but! finding 

a way to convey this priceless 
legacy to a wide and diverse audi- 
ence in a succinct, compact, com- 
pelling way is quite another.. .1 hope 
you will find the exhibition 
meaningful. Its preparation has in- 
deed been a meaningful experience 
for my staff and me and has chal- 
lenged us to think about communi- 
cating historical research in ways 
that differ sharply from our usual 
reliance upon the written word," he 

Sponsors of the project included 
the Carroll Institute of London, the 
Maryland State Archives, the Mary- 
land General Assembly, the Mary- 
land Humanities Council and the 
Philip Morris Companies. 

The exhibit, which is open to the 
public, will be shown through

Education Professor Unveils 
Sculpture of Supreme Court Justice 

Randall Craig, an associate pro- 
fessor in the Department of Curri- 
culum and Instruction in the Col- 
lege of Education, recently unveiled 
his sculptural portrait of Supreme 
Court justice Thurgood Marshall at 
the 1 toward University School of 

Marshall graduated from 
Howard in 1933. 

The work was a gift to the law 
schdol from its class of 1991, and the 
unveiling was witnessed not only 
by Marshall himself, but other 
Supreme Court justices including 
Byron White, Sandra Day 
O'Connor, Harry Blackmun, 
Anthony Kennedy and David 

Craig and Marshall both attend- 
ed the Frederick Douglass High 
School in Baltimore. 

Craig's other artistic works in- 
clude the 4 by 1 6 foot frieze in the 
Benjamin Building's north lobby, 
which the sculptor donated to the 
college in 1987. The frieze, which 
symbolizes the history of education 
in our culture over a long period of 
time and recognizes the important 
leaders that have made significant 
contributions to the development of 
education, depicts a range of per- 
sons from Black and Asian to 
Anglo-Saxon and disabled, 

Craig says that he tries to capture 
the emotional and intellectual 
response of a political, social, and 
cultural phenomenon in his works. 

Craig also recently finished a 
sculpture of the former University 
of Maryland regent Clarence 
Mitchell Jr., a lobbyist for the 
NAACP and a civil rights advocate. 

A resident of Baltimore, where 
he is an influential black artist and 
sculptor, Craig is represented by 
various area art galleries.

Physics Department Colloquia 

Bring Distinguished Guests to Campus 

The initial wonderment of the 
first cave- person who rubbed to- 
gether two flintstones one coid 
winter's night must have been tem- 
porarily forgotten when the ensuing 
sparks set fire to a pile of debris in a 
corner of the cave and her shivering 
children crawled toward the 
welcome warmth. The light from 
the fire even enabled her to see the 
entire cave. She no doubt realized 
then that this was a tremendously 
beneficial discovery. 

That discovery would have been 
lost to humanity, however, if she 
had not been able to communicate 
the necessary skills to her children 
and, thus, to posterity. 

For the past four decades the 
Department of Physics has been 
providing the necessary platform 
for famous discoverers to impart 
their knowledge and skills not only 
to all interested facultv members on 
campus but also to the general 
public at large and to the next gen- 
eration of the campus: the students. 

Every Tuesday afternoon of each 
semester, in a tradition which was 
begun in the 1950s by John S. Toll, 
former department chair and now 
chancellor emeritus, distinguished 
scientists from all over the United 
States, and sometimes from over- 
seas, meet over tea and cookies with 
assembled College Park faculty, 
students and the general public. 

After this informal gathering, 
people in the audience take their 
seats or squeeze into any available 
space on the steps of the auditori- 
um. The speaker is then introduced, 
and the colloquium begins. 

Many of these visiting lecturers 
have distinguished names that stu- 
dents learn when they first open a 
physics textbook. Other lecturers, 
like the students in the audience 
before them, also have sat at the feet 
of the founders of modern physics. 
All convey the excitement of 
discovery and the stimulus of 

Last semester, for example, there 
were colloquia on everything from 
the high-precision determination of 
fundamental constants using quan- 
tum electrodynamics, to the origins 
of the solar system, to the physics of 
earthquake faults, to the use of laser 
tweezers for the study of biological 
motors. The speakers included 
Alexander Migda! of 
Princeton University, Hector 
Rubinstein of the University of 
Stockholm, Steven Block of Harvard 
University, and the President of the 
American Physical Society, Eugen 

For the present semester, one of 
the biggest draws will undoubtedly 
be Fang Lizhi, the noted Chinese 
astrophysicist now at Cambridge 
University, England, He will speak 
on February 19. Another will be the 
Nobel Laureate Roald Hoffmann of 
Cornell University, whose topic on 
February 12 will be "Making and 
Breaking Bonds in the Solid State." 

Completing the program for Feb- 
ruary, William Phillips, on February 
26, will describe the latest de- 
velopments at the National Institute 
for Science and Technology in his 
talk on "laser cooling and the 
coldest atoms ever." 

Yoichiro Nambu, of the Univer- 
sity of Chicago, winner of the 
Heineman and Oppenheimer Prizes, 
spoke FebRiary 5 on "The Bardeen- 
Cooper-Schrieffer Mechanism at 
Work in Various Fields of Physics." 

This year's organizers, Richard 
A. Ferrell and Joseph Sucher, ex- 
plain this last topic: "If you shine 
light on atoms, you'd expect the 
system to warm them up." Not a bit 
of it. "Actually it produces a toss of 
energy and cooling." 

Many of the speakers come to 
College Park after being asked to 
come here for a visit by physics 
department faculty members who 
have heard them give talks else- 
where. One of these is John Mather 
of the infrared Astrophysics Branch 
of NASA. Mather is a member of 
the team analyzing data still coming 
in from NASA's COBE satellite. 
Though the satellite has run out of 
helium, data from the instruments 
that require the gas are still being 
analyzed, and the instruments that 
do not require helium are, continu- 
ing to function well. Mather will 
have a great deal to report during 
his lecture on April 30. 

Chancellor Donald Langenberg, 
who is also a professor of physics, 
opened this semester's colloquium 
series on January 29 with a talk on 
"Physics and the World of the Uni- 
versity of Maryland System." 

Many of these speakers come to 
College Park because of their close 
ties to and common research inter- 
ests with members of the physics 
department. Many of these ties have 
been nurtured for decades through 
mutual respect and, often, 
friendship. They serve to stimulate 
the development of the research 
being carried on at this campus by 
faculty and students alike. 

That first cave-person discover- 
ing the means of manufacturing fire 
and light would never have 
regarded herself as a physicist. 
Moreover, she would doubtless 
have had cosmogonical beliefs that 
would have left her quite unable to 
comprehend those of one of her 
distant descendants, such as 
Glennys Farrar of Rutgers Univer- 
sity {the speaker on April 9). Farrar 
is well known for her work on the 
physics of the universe less than a 
second after its creation. 

For further information on the 
colloquia scheduled for the spring 
semester, please contact Ferrell at 
405-61 48 or Sucher at 405-6012.

Engineers Examine Surface and 
Groundwater Contamination 

To address the possible contam- 
ination of surface and ground wat- 
ers due to agricultural pesticide use, 
agricultural engineers Adel 
Shirmohammadi and William 
Magette are working with soil sci- 
entist and transport theoretician 
Tim Gish of the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture's Agricultural Research 
Service (USDA-ARS) to track the 
movement of pesticides through soil 
and water. 

The scientists are examining the 
impact of different tillage practices 

and chemical application methods 
on this movement and the resulting 
surface and ground water quality. 
Their project, sponsored by the 
Maryland Agricultural Experiment 
Station and USDA-ARS, involves 
the first field-scale research in the 
nation evaluating the movement 
and fate of encapsulated pesticides 
under different tillage systems. The 
results could have important impli- 
cations for the quality of the Chesa- 
peake Bay and its tributaries. 

1991 Foreign Policy Program Underway 

Twenty fellows from countries 
around the world have come to 
College Park to take part in the 1991 
Seminar on the U.S. Foreign Policy 

The program was established in 
1987 as a joint initiative of the 
School of Public Affairs and the 
Ford Foundation. It enables mid- 
career government officials, policy- 
oriented scholars and journalists, 
primarily from developing coun- 
tries, to engage in direct, intensive 
analysis of the United States foreign 
policy process. Directed by I.M. 
Destier, a leading specialist in U.S. 

foreign policymaking and author of 
the a ward -winning book American 
Trade Policies, the program combines 
the resources of the university, 
including experts from the School of 
Public Affairs faculty, with access to 
policymakers and institutions in 
Washington, D.C. Seminar 
participants conduct individual 
research projects on aspects c^f 
recent U.S. government policy- 
making of particular interest to 

The program runs from January 
through June.
