Outstanding Campus 
Publications Recognized 

Nearly 300 publications are pro- 
duced on the College Park campus 
every year. On March 21, at an 
awards ceremony held at Stamp 
Union, 30 of these publica- 
tions — newsletters, brochures 
and posters — were recognized for 
their excellence. 

A special President's Award, 
presented by Vice President 
Kathryn Costello, was given to the 
Office of Undergraduate Studies for 
its booklet, "Keeping the Promise: A 
Status Report on Undergraduate 
Education." In making the award, 
Costello cited the booklet for being 
"the best expression of the quality 
and aspirations of the College Park

University to Host Resource 
Fair on Eldercaregiving 

By the year 2000 it is projected 
that 35 million people (one out of 
every five Americans) will be 65 
years of age or older. Contrary to 
popular belief, most of the long- 
term health and social care needed 
by dependent persons is provided 
by family members. 

The university's Eldercare Com- 
mittee is hosting a resource fair to 
address the issues of caregiving on 
April 15 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in 
the Colony Ballroom of the Stamp 
Student Union. 

Michael Creedon, a nationally- 
known spokesperson for eldercare 
and caregiving issues, will present 
the keynote address. Creedon, who 
is the president of the Creedon 
Group and former director of cor- 
porate programs at the National 
Council on Aging, will address 
resources and support systems. 
Representatives from surrounding 
counties will be on hand to answer 
questions. Free resource materials 
will be available, as well. 

"Many employees are finding 
themselves thrust into the care- 
giving role for elderly parents or 
relatives, as well as managing roles 
between career and family," says 
Helen O'Ferrall, chair of the Elder- 
care Committee, which was estab- 
lished in 1 987 as a subcommittee of 

the President's Commission on 
Women's Affairs. 

According to O'Ferrall, approxi- 
mately 20 percent of employees on 
the College Park campus are care- 

"The percentage of caregivers 
and the demands on them will 
increase greatly in the future as the 
population ages and federal legisla- 
tion eliminates more programs," 
says O'Ferrall. 

Since its formation in 1 987, the 
Eldercare Committee has worked 
together on a number of activities 
designed to raise the campus com- 
munity's awareness of eldercare 
and caregiving issues, including a 
prior resource fair, topical seminars, 
participation in local and national 
workshops and publication of a 
"Caregiver's Guide" for the 
employees of College Park, UMUC, 
and System Administration. 

"This is not a woman's issue 
only," says O'Ferrall. "Everyone has 
parents or relatives who are aging. 
We also need to know about aging 
and services for ourselves to better 
equip our children for the future." 

The resource fair is free and open 
to the public. For more information 
call 405-1210.

Heisler, Immigration Expert, Wins Fulbright 
for European Research 

Martin O. Heisler, associate pro- 
fessor of government and politics, 
has been selected as a Western Eur- 
opean Regional Fulbright Fellow for 
field research in Germany and 
Britain. An authority on immigra- 
tion policies and laws and interna- 
tional migration patterns, Heisler 
also has been awarded a fellowship 
from the Centre National de la 
Recherche Scientifiejue of France. 

Both fellowships will be used for 
research on his cross-national 
comparative research project, "The 
Institutional and Normative Con- 
struction of Identity" in Germany, 

France, Great Britain and Belgium. 

The research, dealing with ethnic 
minorities, immigrants and anti- 
immigrant movements, will be 
conducted while Heisler is on sab- 
batical leave in 1991-92. His wife, 
Barbara Schmitter Heisler, associate 
professor of sociology and anthro- 
pology at Gettysburg College, is 
collaborating with him on the

Customer Service Training Program Set 


Between 150 and 200 student staff from local colleges and uni- 
versities including College Park are expected to attend a student 
staff conference sponsored by Campus Guest Services April 13. 
Entitled "Do the Right Thing," the customer service training program 
will feature Dennis Mannering as keynote speaker. Mannering, 
author of Attitudes are Contagious... Are Yours Worth Catching, will 
discuss personal responsibility and accountability for the quality of 
staff performance. The day-long conference is designed to provide 
student staffs from area universities the opportunity to network and 
share ideas and perspectives.

College Park: A Family Affair 

You've heard the saying, "A 
family that plays together stays 
together." Mary Gibson, Resident 
Life administrative assistant, proves 
a family that plays together can also 
work together. 

Gibson's mother, Elsie Matthews, 
and her two sisters, Joyce Taylor 
and Denisc Albright, all work for 
the university. Although the four 
family members have worked at 
College Park together for over ten 
years, they agree unanimously that 
the shared university employment 
is not what has kept them a close 
knit family. 

"We were always close," says 
Matthews. "We all used to carpool 
together," says Gibson. "But since I 
moved further away, now they only 
ride together. I kind of miss that 
interaction in the carpool though; 
we reallv had some good times." 

Even after sharing the day in 
close proximity, the three sisters still 
visit their mother's house four times 
a week regularly and drop by 
almost every weekend for dinner. 

Gibson started at College Park as 
a registrar's office clerk typist in 
1969. Later she moved to housing in 
1970 where she did payroll and 
some accounting. Now she works 
for resident life where she has more 
administrative duties. 

"As a secretary, I did more typ- 
ing than appointments," says 
Gibson. "I didn't have as much lee- 
way then." 

Her mother, who is a house- 
keeper in Easton Hall, came to the 
university in 1975 after Gibson sug- 
gested she apply for a position. By 
1977, both her sisters were house-

keepers in the dormitory high rises 
as well. 

Because the four relatives work 
in diverse areas, each sees a differ- 
ent side of the university. 

"They fmy sisters and my mom I 
have more day to day contact than I 
do," says Gibson. "I just deal with 
the administrators. I see another 
side to the students that they don't 
see and vice versa." 

Each agrees, however, that stu- 
dent interaction is the highlight of 
the job. 

"The students are very nice and 
they treat me nicely," says Albright 
who is the youngest of the three 

"One of the main reasons I'm on 
the campus today is because of stu- 
dents," says Gibson, "They have 

fresh ideas and they're more open. I 
also think they have gotten more 
mature over the years. In 1969 the 
discipline was so harsh and thev 
re be! 1 ed . Bu t n o w [ t he university ] 
does more counseling, and it has 
more places that can help students 
with their problems. 1 think the staff 
cares more about the residents." 

Next year, Gibson's mother will 
be retiring. But one less family 
member will not change their 

"Unless she moves, we'll still 
visit," says Gibson. "I don't think 
that would change a thing."

Physical Plant Honors Its Own 

James E. Whirled 

In back-to-back ceremonies in the 
Stamp Student Union late last 
month, the Department of Physical 
Plant paid tribute to its evening and 
day shift employees honoring them 
for service, attendance and 
outstanding performance during 

The awards ceremony recog- 
nized those College Park employees 
who in 1990 demonstrated out- 
standing performance in grounds 
maintenance, steam distribution, 
water main and sewage system 
operation, street light security, 
computer room air conditioning, 
locksmithing and the dozens of 
other activities essential to keep the 
campus operating efficiently and 

Three Physical Plant employees 
were presented with the Robert L. 
Hafer Award, the department's 
highest honor for meritorious ser- 
vice. The three are: Joseph S. 1 layes, 
manager, evening shifts, Building 
Services; Charles F. Stubbs, Jr., 
working foreman, General Services, 
and James E. Whitted, working 
foreman, Area Maintenance. 

The Hafer Award carries with it 
a plaque and savings bonds with a 
face value of $400. Physical Plant 

Director Frank Brewer made the 
presentations following a video tape 
production by the Flagship Channel 
that traced the history of the Hafer 
Award and featured personal 
recollections of the late Robert L. 
Hafer, the department director of 
operations bv Physical Plant staff. 
Hafer died in 1979, 

The retirement this month of 
William Blain Sines, Superintendent 
of the Central Heating Plant, also 
was announced. Sines has served 
the campus for 44 years. 

In recognition of their exception- 
al accomplishments during the year, 
the crew of Zone 4 won the 
Outstanding Zone of the Year 
award. Zone 4 is known as the 
policing zone and responds to 
special campus emergencies and 
problems. The award was made for 
accomplishments in training, cus- 
tomer relations, special projects and

Ferguson Explores the International 
Broadcasting Environment 

During the Persian Culf War, 
many leaders of nations around the 
globe said they followed the 
unfolding military events via the 
C able News Network, admissions 
that illustrate some of the dramatic 
changes that have taken place in the 
international broadcasting 
environment over the past decade, 
says Marjorie Ferguson, associate 
professor of radio, television and 

"The 1 980s were a period of 
ferment in broadcasting," says 
Ferguson, an expert in international 
broadcasting policy and the cultural 
impact of new communication 
technologies. "When you think 
about how we've come to expect 
real-time, live television coverage of 
wars, revolutions and summit 
diplomacy, this is a potent symbol 
of what's been happening." 

Shifts in the market and regula- 
tory structures of broadcast systems 
in many countries, along with 
innovations in satellite, VCRs and 
cable technology that have affected 
the way in which broadcasts are 
made and distributed, have stimu- 
lated the changes, Ferguson says. 

During the 1980s, the broadcast- 
ing systems in 12 out of 1 5 Western 
European countries shifted from 
public and semi- public monopolies 
to enterprises with more channels 
and more private ownership, 
Ferguson says. 

With privatization came greater 
competition for audiences and 
greater interest in entertainment 
programming, according to 

"In the Soviet Union, Latin 
America, Eastern Europe as well as 
Western Europe, audiences want 
game shows, soaps, old movies and 
sitcoms," says the scholar who came 
to the university from the London 
School of Economics in 1988. 

Because of high domestic pro- 
duction costs, much of the world's 
entertainment programming is 
imported from the United States or 
bears a strong resemblence to the 
tried and true staples of American 
television, she says. 

She notes, however, that con- 
cerns about the cultural impact of 
multi-national television fare are not 
particularly justified. There is little 
evidence to suggest that linguistic 
and cultural diversity is 
diminishing in the wake of televi- 
sion imports, she says. 

The growth of global television 
markets in news as well as enter- 
tainment is matched by the trend to 
concentrated ownership by the 
small number of media corporations 
with the capital and know how to 
operate large broadcasting systems, 
Ferguson says. Such European 
media magnates as Great Britain's 
Robert Maxwell and Italy's Silvio 
Berlusconi continue to expand their 
operations in this environment. 

Advances in cable and satellite 
technology have helped stimulate 
the shifts in ownership, market 
structures and audience demands 
that are part of the changing inter- 

national broadcasting environment, 
Ferguson says. 

The implications of these 
changes were displayed vividly 
during the Culf War when techno- 
logically advanced broadcasters 
from around the world were able to 
establish real-time audio and visual 
links, often thousands of miles from 
their home audiences. 

There is nothing new about the 
ability to offer distant, cross-nation- 
al radio reports or television images 
to such a diverse audience. What is 
new from the vantage of 1991 is the 
instant distribution of those signals 
by satellite to so many countries via 
so many new distribution channels, 
Ferguson says.

"Top Girls" Will Be 
Major Student Production 

University Theatre's upcoming 
production of Caryl Churchill's 
comedy "Top Girls" will feature the 
talents of theatre students both on 
stage and behind the scenes. 

Performances of "Top Girls" will 
be held April 9-14 and April 16-21 
in the Pugliese Theatre. 

Like most University Theatre 
productions, student actors will 
comprise the cast. Unlike most pro- 
ductions, however "Top Girls" will 
have graduate and undergraduate 
students directing the show and 
designing sets, lighting and cos- 
tumes. Sharon Ammen, a doctoral 
student in theatre, will direct the 
production. Ammen, who is 
advised by Patti Gillespie, professor 
of theatre, is concentrating on 
feminist theatre and theatrical 
adaptations as part of her graduate 

Two other graduate students in 
theatre will direct the scene and 
lighting design for the production. 
Bill Price will handle the scene 
design, and Michael O'Hara will be 
in charge of lighting design. 
Shirley DuBois, an undergraduate 

theatre major, will be the show's 
costume designer. 

David Krebs, a faculty member, 
is the technical director. 

"Top Girls" is a feminist play in 
which the main character celebrates 
a job promotion by hosting a fantasy 
dinner party for some of the great 
women in history. 

"This play shows the fragmented 
images of what women are like 
today," Ammen says. "I hope that in 
the future, a woman can be pro- 
fessional, competent, nurturing, 
sensual, funny — a whole human

Children's Book Series Addresses 
Problems of Young Children 

In an effort to deal with the 
problems common to young child- 
ren, Kenneth R. Greenberg, associ- 
ate professor and director of the 
School Counseling program in the 
College of Education, has developed 
a series of books entitled, "The 
Adventures of Tusky and His 

The books, which are intended to 
be read to children five to nine years 
old, are about a little elephant 
named Tusky, who, with his friend 
Packy, interact with a "professorial" 
owl named Hooty. Approximately 
20 books are planned as part of the 
"Snuggle-Up" series. 

"There is a need, today, for stor- 
ies directed to voung children that 
address the issues of values, moral- 
ity, attitudes, and social expecta- 
tions," says Greenberg. "The Tusky 
stories deal with these issues." 

There is no series of picture 

books designed expressly for young 
children that deals with such critical 
concepts as developing 
communication skills, positive and 
negative thinking, good judgment, 
trust, dealing with jealousy, how 
attitudes can be changed, the con- 
science, the importance of sharing, 
developing empathy, and acquiring 
self-esteem, says Greenberg. 

At the end of each chapter 
Greenberg includes a number of 
discussion questions for the reader 
to ask the listener. 

"These questions have been 
developed to motivate children to 
express their understanding of and 
feelings about the concepts and 
situations that have been cited in the 
story," says Greenberg. "The child is 
encouraged to engage in discussion 
with the reader and share his or her 
personal experiences." 

The questions are bo Hi a teaching 

device and a stimulus that enables 
the reader to reflect on and discuss 
the values contained within each 

"It is expected that this will 
enhance the parent-child or teacher- 
pupil relationship and generate 
quality time between the reader and 
listener," says Greenberg. 

Topics to be covered in the 
"Snuggle-Up" series include sibling 
rivalry, telling lies, adjustment and 
academic problems in school, 
understanding feelings, stealing, 
drug and alcohol problems, dealing 
with anger and aggression, concerns 
about sexuality, eating and sleeping 
problems, understanding death, 
improving relationships with peers, 
use of leisure and play, winning and 
losing games, keeping promises, 
and problems with parents.

Researchers Achieve Breakthrough in Development 
of Microwave Amplifiers 

Scientists in the Laboratory for 
Plasma Research at the university 
have achieved a major advance in 
the capabilities of high power 
microwave amplifiers. 

This breakthrough, according to 
Victor Granatstein, the lab's direc- 
tor, may help lead to the eventual 
development of an electron-positron 
collider operating in the multi-TeV 
energy range. 

Such a future collider is impor- 
tant because it would extend 
research capabilities beyond those 
of the $8 billion Superconducting 
Super-Collider (a proton -a ntiproton 
collider) currently being constructed 
in Texas. The electron-positron 
multi-TeV collider would likely be 
built early in the 21st century. It 
would be driven by thousands of 
microwave amplifiers operating at a 
frequency near 20 GHz, each pro- 
ducing output power of at least 
several hundred megawatts in 100 
nanosecond pulses (or equivalently, 
several tens of megawatts in 1,000 
nanosecond pulses). 

The Maryland research group 
has extended power capabilities in 
gyrotron amplifiers by a factor of 
400 compared with previous results 
and has achieved 20 megawatt peak 
power in 1,000 nanosecond pulses at 
a frequency of 9.87 GHz. 

Gyrotron amplifies scale more 
favorably with frequency than other 
microwave tubes, and must now be 
considered a leading contender for 
driving the multi-TeV electron- 
positron collider. Work is beginning 
at Maryland on developing a 
gyrotron amplifier at 20 GHz. 

Results of this work are 
described in a paper entitled 
"Efficient Operation of a High Pow- 
er X-Band Gyroklystron," submitted 
to Physical Review Letters. The 
authors are Wesley Lawson, Jeff 
Calame, Bart Hogan, Peter Latham, 
Michael Read, Victor Granatstein, 
Martin Reiser and Charles Striffler. 
Lawson, Granatstein, Reiser and 
Striffler are members of the Depart- 
ment of Electrical Engineering

is being supported by the Division 
of High Energy Physics of the U.S. 
Department of Energy.

New Book Looks at Student Community Service 
and Values Development 

Greig M. Stewart, assistant dean 
of the College of Journalism and 
affiliate assistant professor in the 
Counseling and Personnel Services 
Department, and Suzanne D. Mintz, 
assistant director of Experiential 
Learning Programs, have co-edited 
a new book focusing on the 
development of public service 
learning programs on college and 
university campuses. 

The book, Community Services as 
Values Education, was published by 
Jossey-Bass Inc. as part of its Mew 

Directions for Student Services ser- 

A third co-author, Cecilia I. 
Delve, directs the Volunteer and 
Public Service Center a t George- 
town University. 

"Integrating a values education 
into every aspect of the students' 
academic experience will serve to 
ensure a more advanced, and, one 
would hope, lifelong commitment 
to public service," they write. 

The book introduces the idea of 
"service learning," a concept the 

editors say is more than experience 
as a volunteer and different from 
structured college and university 
experiences such as internships or 

The editors say they hope the 
book will encourage increased 
involvement by, and provide con- 
crete support for, student-affairs 
professionals, administrators, and 
faculty as they begin or continue to 
participate in public and commun- 
ity-service initiatives. 

State's Economy Expected to Recover 
Later this Year 

The Maryland economy is 
expected to recover as the national 
economy improves in the latter part 
of 1991 , and the state should be on a 
healthy recovery path in 1992. 

Those are the forecasts in a 
report by Mahlon R. Straszheim, 
professor and chair, and Lorraine 
Sullivan Monaco, instructor, in the 
Department of Economics. The 
report, "The Role of Service 
Employment in Maryland's Out- 
look," is the second in a series of 
working papers issued by the 

The report is based on a com- 
puter model that uses data by 

industry in Maryland and a national 
data bank and inter-industry model 
developed by IN FORUM, the 
Interindustry Forecasting Project at 
the University of Maryland. 

"Service sector employment grew 
at a 4.9 percent rate nationally in 
1989-90, but by only 3.0 percent in 
Maryland," the report notes. 

Following the current period of 
adjustment in the service sectors of 
the economy, Maryland's long-term 
economic advantages will reemerge 
during the recovery period, the 
College Park economists believe. 

The service industry is the larg- 
est segment of Maryland's economy 

employing 603,000 of the total 
2,168,000 working Marylanders. 
Wholesale and retail trades employ 
25 percent of the state's labor force. 

"High real incomes relative to the 
nation, desirable environmental 
amenities, a growing population 
and work force, favorable public 
services relative to tax burdens, and 
proximity to Washington will all 
contribute to the state's recovery in 
the early 1990s. Real income in 
Maryland should again increase at a 
rate exceeding that of the rest of the 
nation," the report concludes.
