A WEEKLY NEWSPAPER FOR FACULTY AND STAFF AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND AT COLLEGE PARK 



SEPTEMBER 30, 1991 
VOLUME 6, NUMBER 5 



Miller Wields Gavel; Lissitz Becomes 
Chair-Elect of Campus Senate 



As the incoming chair of the 
Campus Senate Gerald Miller said 
to his fellow senators, 'The last 
several years have seen an increase 
in the workload, the productivity, 
and the influence of the Campus 
Senate, and this trend will likely 
continue during the coming year." 

Miller's message was possibly 
the understatement of the year. 

The. campus is certain to face 
continuing tough budget decisions 
for this fiscal year and the next. 
The Senate will have to review 
carefully and expeditiously each of 
the forthcoming proposals for aca- 
demic program consolidations, 
reductions, or eliminations arising 
from the APAC review process 
begun last year and the work of the 
Ad Hoc committees appointed by 
Provost J. Robert Dorfman. The 
Senate will receive recommenda- 
tions from its Programs, Curricula, 
and Course Committee on each 
proposal, take action, and forward 
its recommendations to President 
William E. Kirwan. 

Senate committees and then the 
full Senate also will be considering 
other complex issues including: 

• The President's redraft of the 
policy the Senate passed in 1989 on 
tennination of faculty if financial 
exigency must be declared

J-School Professor Establishes New 
Press Freedom Center in Hungary 



Ray E. Hiebert, professor in the 
College of Journalism, has received 
a grant to establish the American 
Journalism Center, a training pro- 
gram in Budapest for Hungarian 
journalists. 

The program, under Hiebert's 
direction, will be funded by a 
$306,(K)0 grant from the Interna- 
tional Media Fund (IMF). 

The five-year program will be 
co-sponsored by the university and 
IMF with the ultimate goal being to 
create a school of journalism that 
will become part of the university 
system in Hungary. 

The center initially will offer a 
series of workshops in Hungary on 
such subjects as the press and gov- 
ernment, print and broadcast man- 
agement, advertising, and desktop 
publishing. The first workshop was 
May 10 in Budapest. 

"Hungary needs immediate help 
in establishing meaningful ways to 
train its journalists," says Hiebert, 
who has visited the country a 
number of times for interviews 
with print and broadcast media 
representatives and government 
officials. "Of all the countries of 
Eastern Europe, Hungary probably 
has the best chance for quick 



success in saving its economy, 
building a viable free-market 
system, developing a democratic 
society and securing a free press. 

"Hungarian journalists are 
highly skilled at expressing them- 
selves in print or broadcast," he 
adds. "But their publications and 
broadcasts have, in their lifetime, 
always been subsidized by the gov- 
ernment, they have not had to pro- 
duce material based on audience 
interest and appeal. They have to 
be shown that freedom of the press 
won't work unless one listens to 
the demands of the marketplace." 

The fledgling journalism and 
mass communication program at 
ELTE University in Budapest and a 
program in mass media studies at 
the English Department of Janos 
Pannonius University in Pecs will 
serve as starting points for 
Hiebert's project. As founding 
director of the American Journal- 
ism Center, he will coordinate its 
operations from the university's 

College of Journalism. Future plans 
call for an associate director in 
Budapest, interacting with univer-

Pugh Wins Packard 
Fellowship 



William Pugh, assistant profes- 
sor of computer science, has won a 
prestigious David and Lucille 
Packard Fellowship for Science and 
Engineering. 

Pugh, who also received a 1991 
National Science Foundation Presi- 
dential Young Investigator Award 
CPYl), is one of only 20 young sci- 
entists in the country out of 97 
nominated to receive a Packard 
Fellowship this year. The fellow- 
ship carries a stipend of $100,000 a 
year for five years. 

The PYl award provides a grant 
of $25,000 per year from NSF for 
five years. In addition, each dollar 
of industrial support is matched by 
NSF on a dollar-for-dollar basis up 
to a total annual grant of $K)0,000. 



Winning the Packard Fellowship 
and the PYl makes Pugh one of the 
most visible young scientists in the 
nation. He is a specialist in the area 
of programming languages and is 
known for his development of skip 
lists. 

His research involves automatic 
methods for reorganizing computer 
programs to make effective use of 
massive parallelism and specialized 
programming languages designed 
for computationally intensive scien- 
tific problems such as weather pre- 
diction and air flow modeling. 

Pugh holds a Ph.D. from Cornell 
University and has been on the 
Department of Compu tor Science 
faculty at College Park since 1989.

Campus Senate Looks Forward 
to Tough Year 



tiiiiliiiin-il frrim fliiffv I 



The Campus Senate truly faces 
one of the busiest, and most critical 
decision-making years in its his- 
tory. 

At its first meeting on Septem- 
ber 16, Miller (Chemistry and Bio- 
chemistry) took over the gavel as 
chair, and the Senate chose Robert 
Lissitz (Measurement, Statistics and 
Evaluation) as chair-elect. The fol- 
lowing faculty, staff, and students 
were elected to serve on the Senate 
Executive Committee with Miller 
and Lissitz: 

Faculty: James Alexander 
(Math.), Keith Campbell (Philos- 
ophy), Christopher Davis (Electrical 
Engin.), John Haslem (Bus. and 
Mngt.), Don Piper (Govt, and Poli- 
tics), Ellin Scholnick (Psych.), and 
Nancy Struna (Kinesiology). 

Staff: Cynthia Hale (Comp. Sci.) 
and Patricia Moreland (Counseling 
Center). 

Students: Shari Barsky (under- 
grad.. Govt, and Politics) and Jay 
Thomas (grad. student, Geo- 
graphy). 

President Kirwan or his repre- 
sentative, Marie Davidson, and 
Provost Dorfman or his representa- 
tive, David Falk, and the Executive 



Secretary of the Senate, Kathleen 
Smith, are ex officio non-voting 
members of the Executive Commit- 
tee. James Klumpp serves as Senate 
Parliamentarian. 

In addition to the issues listed 
above — most associated in one way 
or another with the severe budget 
reversions — a number of more 
usual issues are on the agenda for 
consideration by the Senate this 
year. These include: 

• Undergraduate advising: The 
major charge before the Education- 
al Affairs Committee {Chair, Larry 
Warren) is to develop a statement 
defining the standards and expecta- 
tions for undergraduate advising, 
to identify effective means for 
advising, to develop a procedure 
for a regular campus-wide assess- 
ment of the quantity and quality of 
advising, and to develop recom- 
mendations for fiscal, staff, and fac- 
ulty resources. 

• A report on Impediments to 
Research, based on an extensive 
survey of faculty members, is due 
this year from the Research Com- 
mittee (Frank Alt, Chair). 

• The Academic Procedures and 
Standards Committee (Chair not 
yet appointed) will continue its 



study of the Three-finals- 
scheduled-on-the-same-day issue 
that it t»egan discussing last year. 

• The Parking Report, recom- 
mending significantly increased 
parking fees, will be considered by 
the Campus Affairs Committee 
(James Alexander, Chair). 

Many issues concerning the uni- 
versity's fiscal crisis have been laid 
on top of the normal Senate agenda 
of recommending program changes 
and the institution of new or 
revised academic and campus poli- 
cies. It will be an extraordinarily 
active year for the Campus Senate 
and its committees.

Maryland Wins WICI Vanguard Award 



The university has been named 
one of the top three finalists in the 

prestigious Vanguard Award com- 
petition held by Women in Com- 
munications, Inc. (WICI). 

Established in 1980, the 
Vanguard Award recognizes com- 
panies or institutions for their posi- 
tive portrayals of women and helps 
to heighten the general awareness 
of factors that enhance the image 
and status of women. 

In 1988, the university launched 
an innovative program to improve 
undergraduate women's education 
and the status of women on cam- 



pus. The program includes the 
overhaul and revision of curricu- 
lum to include scholarship on 

women in various disciplines and 
training for faculty on improving 
the classroom climate for women. 

In addition, the program includes 
the designation of positions for hir- 
ing women in fields where they are 
underrepresented and increased 
hiring, promotion and retention of 
women faculty, including senior 
administrative positions. 

"The University of Maryland at 
College Park has created an 
extraordinary program that ensures 



lasting change for the institution 
and directly advances women 
toward positions of equality," the 
WICI citation reads. 

President William E. Kirwan will 
accept the award during WlCI's 
National Professional Conference in 
Atlanta, October 12. 

The 1991 winner was IBM Cor- 
poration. The two other finalists 
were The Freedom Fonim for First 
Amendment Freedoms and the 
Gannett Co., Inc. NOW Legal 
Defense and Education Fund 
received an Award of Special 
Merit. 



ICONS to Simulate Negotiations on 
International Drug Issues 



The Organization of American 
States (GAS) has awarded a $27,000 
grant to Project ICONS (Interna- 
tional Communication and Negoti- 
ation Simulation) of the Depart- 
ment of Government and Politics to 
give students from universities in 
North and South America first- 
hand experience negotiating inter- 
national drug issues using the 
ICONS simulation urogram. 

By attempting to negotiate and 
resolve problems such as drug 
abuse, drug production, trafficking 
and crop substitution, the students 
will gain a better understanding of 
how these issues are linked to oth- 
er social, economic and political 
problems within their own country 
and other countries, says Jonathan 
Wilkenfeld, chair and professor of 
government and politics. 
College Park is collaborating with 
faculty at the University of 
Cordoba, Argentina, to organize 
this special pilot program. 

For three weeks this fall, begin- 
ning September 30, teams of stu- 
dents will play the roles of govern- 
ment leaders. They will research 
drug issues in their countries and . 
negotiate with each other using the 
ICONS program developed by 
Wilkenfeld and Richard Brccht, 
professor of Germanic and Slavic 
Languages and Li terature. 

Participants will come from six 
Latin American universities in 
Argentina, Chile, Venezuela, Peru, 
Columbia and Costa Rica, as well 
as from College Park and the Uni- 
versity of Ottawa in Canada, notes 
ICONS simulation director Patty 
Landis. 

Participants from College Park 
will include students studying gov- 
ernment and politics, foreign lan- 
guages, computer science, and 
natural resource management. 

A training program for partici- 
pating faculty members was held 
eariier this month at the University 
of Cordoba. 

In a related development, 
ICONS also recently was awarded 
a $70,000 grant from the U.S. Insti- 
tute of Peace to help establish 
regional centers at the University of 



Connecticut, Brigham Young Uni- 
versity and the Des Moines High 
School District. Another ICONS 
center is already in place at Cali- 
fornia's Whitter College. Each cen- 
ter will provide regional simulation 
services to area high schools. 

The Peace Institute grant will be 
used by College Park to train facul- 
ty members in the use of ICONS 
simulation and to provide com- 



puter support. ICONS also will 
facilitate the involvement of high 
schools in other countries in the 
project. 

The College Park-based ICONS 
continues to offer six simulations 
each year, four for high school stu- 
dents, and two for college and uni- 
versity students.

Study Compares College Park Faculty 
Salaries with AAU and Peer Universities 



The Office of Institutional 
Studies has released findings of an 
annual report comparing faculty 
salaries at College Park with those 
at 33 public and private member 
institutions of the Association of 
American Universities and nine 
"designated peer" universities that 
also appear in the AAU group. 

Relative to the 33 AAU institu- 
tions. College Park stands llth in 
the overall salary averages and 
10th in both associate professors' 
and in assistant processors" salary 



averages, the report notes. 

Fall 1990 College Park average 
salaries were above the median at 
all three faculty ranks. College 
Park's three-ranks salary average 
was also above the median.

College Park's Flagship Channel 
Debuts in Montgomery County 




rlcig'idp ?fOr]uri\orB 




After two years of successful 
programming for cable television 
viewers in Prince George's County, 
the university's Flagship Channel is 
expected to make its debut in 
Montgomery County this month. 

Marjory Small, the university's 
coordinator of television program- 
ming, says that the expansion of 
College Park's Flagship Channel 
into Montgomery County is pro- 
mising. 

"We've just had tons of phone 
calls about the channel, u'ith peo- 
ple inquiring about it and a lot of 
interest generated in it," she says. 

But Small says the interest in the 
expansion is not surprising. "In 
Montgomery County, 17 percent of 
the viewing audience watches ac- 
cess channels," she says. "The type 
of audience we appeal to is here in 
Montgomery and Prince George's 
Counties." She points out that 
many university staff members, 
alumni and commuting students — 
potential viewers — live in both 
the two Maryland counties. 

The Flagship Channel is 
operated by College Park and is 
one of several education access 
channels available to cable subscri- 
bers in the area. The Academic 
Media Technology and Telecom- 
munications Advisory Committee, 
chaired by Sue Clabaugh, oversees 
the station's opieration and pro- 
gramming. 

Besides Small, other Flagship 
Channel staff members include 
Kenny Holl, production coordina- 
tor, and Dan Kolb, programming 
assistant, as well as student work- 
ers. 

The channel has been available 
since January 30, 1989 on Channel 
38-B to cable subscribers in Prince 
George's County. It will be avail- 
able to Montgomery County cable 
subscribers on Channel 59. 

The Flagship Channel is expand- 
ing in other ways as well. This year 
for the first time, the channel will 
offer a program guide to all faculty 
and staff who have a campus mail- 
ing address. The guide will include 
descriptions, dates and times of the 
scheduled programs. (To order a 
copy, call Dan Kolb at 314-9893.) 

Program highlights this season 
include a symposium on the Per- 



sian Gulf War, a documentary on 
Katherine Anne Porter and a cable- 
cast of the Marian Anderson Vocal 
Arts Competition semi-finals. 

Viewers can also look forward 
to an increased emphasis on 
cultural arts programming this 
year. For example, a video movie 
review show featuring Robert 
Kolker, chair of the Radio, Televi- 
sion, and Film Department, is one 
of the new cultural shows slated to 
begin this fall. The show will be 
unique fjecause Kolker, an expert 
on film, will only review movies 
that have not been released in 
movie theaters. [For other upcom- 
ing cultural events, sec box, I 

The Flagship Channel also will 
continue to deliver programming 
in the areas of community service, 
general education, lectures, docu- 
mentaries and sports to cable sub- 
scribers.

The Visitor Center : 
Did You Know... 

...that the university Visitor Cen- 
ter in Turner Lab assisted 12,196 
visitors during its first year of 
operation? About 50 people per 
day stopped by the center for infor- 
mation. 

The Visitor Center opened Sept. 
4 1990 and has answered countless 
questions about the university 
while directing thousands of visi- 
tors to their campus destinations. 

According to Nick Kovalakidcs, 
director of Visitor Services, 44 per- 
cent of these people were seeking 
the Admissions office, 14 percent 
were looking for academic build- 
ings and six percent were Student 
Union bound. 

Three percent each were looking 
for the Libraries, the Adult Educa- 
tion Center, athletic facilities and 
the Administrative Services Build- 
ing. Two percent each were seeking 
arts buildings or events and the 
Campus Driving Tour. Another 20 
percent were looking for various 
other sites.

because of his reckless driving. 

New this year is the lecture 
series Covering the Courts, a sympo- 
sium for journalists explaining ac- 
cess to the court system and how 
the courts work. 

Small encourages members of 
the campus community who have 
program ideas to get in touch with 
her. .She says that there is an added 
incentive for professors and resear- 
chers to become involved with the 
Ragship Channel. It may hie that 
"added tv/ist" a professor needs to 
get a grant approved, she says, 

"Because of our ability to dis- 
seminate information widely, 
because of our ability to reach 
audiences beyond campus bound- 
aries, we can sometimes make the 
difference in the award of a grant," 
she explains. "If they keep us in 
mind when they're thinking about 
a project and we can participate 
up-front in the grant-writing phase, 
we can often times create some 
programming of real value to the 
community, to our viewing audi- 
ence, and also help them increase 
what they can do with a grant." 

But grant or no grant. Small 
says that the Hagship Channel can 
still provide invaluable experience 
for faculty members. 

"When we've had faculty and 
staff involved in a project, they 
gain valuable skills because TV is 
here to stay. They Icarn how to 
work with it and around it," she 
says.

Archaeologist Works to Uncover 
Ancient Temple at Caesarea 



For College Park historian 
Kenneth Holum, the archaeological 
project at the ancient city of 
Caesarea in Israel grows better 
with age. Although he has worked 
at the site more than a decade, new 
treasures seem to surface each year. 

This past summer Holum and 
Avner Raban, professor at Haifa 
University's Center for Maritime 
Studies announced the apparent 
discovery of remains from a temple 
buill before the birth of Christ at 
the direction of King Herod the 
Great. Holum and Raban are co- 
directors of the Combined Caesarea 
Expeditions, a joint Israeli-North 
American excavation project which 
has b>een in progress at the ancient 
Mediterranean city for three seas- 
ons. Holum has been involved in 
projects at Caesarea since 1978 
through a series of expeditions. 

Student excavators from Trinity 
College and Wake Forest Univer- 
sity recently unearthed the three 
ancient cooking pots that archaeol- 
ogists tielieve were set in position 
in about 20 B.C. as workers tinder 
Herod's direction laid the first 
stones of the magnificent Greek- 
style temple. 

"In antiquity it was a tradition to 
bury cooking pots within the foun- 
dation of a building, much in the 
same way that modern builders 



will plant a tree on the roof of a 
building," Holum says. 

In addition, the archaeologists 
have discovered huge stone blocks 
that are believed to be part of the 
temple's foundation, 

A great deal is known about the 
temple through the work of 
Joseph us, the Third Century histor- 
ian of the Jewish people, Holum 
says. The temple was built by 
Herod as a means of emphasizing 
his loyalty to the Roman empire. It 
was dedicated to the pagan god- 
dess Roma and to Roman emperor 
Caesar Augustus, 

In future summers, archaeolo- 
gists will work to find stones that 
were part of the structure. 

"[The templej is of vast histori- 
cal and architectural importance," 
Holum says. 

The temple was among the 
many facets of Herod's grandiose 
plan to build a city with gridded 
streets, a state-of-the-art sewer sys- 
tem, theater, amphitheater, market- 
place, aqueduct and harbor, Holum 
says. Named to curry favor with 
Roman emperor Caesar Augustus, 
the city stood as a major urban cen- 
ter for more than thirteen centuries. 

It is now a popular tourist site 
in Israel and the site of a major 
archaeological project that involves 
both land and underwater excava-

Bonta's Computerized Bibliography Ciiarts Shiow 
the Rise and Fall of Influential Architects 



Into the art of bibliography, 
traditionally performed on dusty 
printed pages, Juan Bonta is inject- 
ing color, charts and computers, 

Bonta, professor of housing and 
design at College Park has devel- 
oped a computerized data base that 
includes bibliographical informa- 
tion on more than 2,500 American 
architects featured in more than 
300 key texts on American 
architecture. 

Beyond merely listing which 
architects appear where in which 
books, Bonta's system provides 
instant analysis of the bibliograph- 
ical information, Bonta's data base 
can provide a researcher with an 
idea of the rise and fall of an archi- 
tect's reputation, the professional 
relations tietween architects, the 
importance of an American archi- 
tect overseas and the relative influ- 
ence of a book within the field. 

The bibliography, known as 
"American Architect and Texts," 
delivers such information through 
a 50,000-line software program — 
written by the scholar over the past 
10 years — that sorts basic facts in 
unusual ways, Bonta points to the 
data base's historical perspective, 
its means of identifying trend -set- 
ting books and its ability to spot 
textual relationships between archi- 



tects as highlights of the system. 

The system measures the "fame" 
of architects through histograms. 
The histograms are computer-gen- 
erated charts that show a timeline 
ranging from an architect's earliest 
to most recent mention in the liter- 
ature. Graphs indicate the years in 
which the architect was cited most 
often. The implication is that an 
architect's reputation and influence 
were greatest in the period when 
he or she was receiving the greatest 
number of citations. 

Bonta's system spots trendset- 
ting texts by grouping books of 
highly similar content. The implica- 
tion is that the earliest book in the 
group influenced the others. Books 
that turn up numerous times in 
this analysis likely were unusually 
important texts at some point. Such 
books as Space, Time, and Architec- 
ture and The Golden City are at the 
top of the list in this analysis. 

The system also charts archi- 
tects' "co-textuality," The system 
notes when architects often are 
cited together in the literature, a 
circumstance that indicates some 
kind of relationship between the 
architects. This co-textuality does 
not necessarily imply that the 
architects produced simitar work. 
They may be figures whose ideas 




Juan Bonta 

were diametrically opposed. But 
they are mentioned together none- 
theless, 

Bonta has written a forthcoming 
book on the system that will be 
published by the M IT Press, 
Recently he demonstrated the sys- 
tem at the National Gallery of Art 
and the Getty Museum in Los 
Angeles.

Hypertension in Blacks May Be 
Associated with Skin Melanin 



Researchers in the Department 
of Health Education have recently 
linked the high prevalence of 

hypertension in blacks to an abun- 
dance of norepinephrine, a vaso- 
constrictor that is produced by the 
body during stress and is associat- 
ed with the skin pigmentator mel- 
anin. Results show that the vascu- 
lar response to stress of black peo- 
ple lasts at least ten times longer 
than that of whiles, resulting in 
hypertension. 

Based on his findings, Roger J. 
Allen, associate professor of health 
education, suggests that current 
hypertension treatments using fluid 
reducing diuretic drugs for blacks 
may be inappropriate and may, in 
fact, exacerbate their hypertension. 

"This study looks at physiologi- 
cal reasons for the prevalence of 
hypertension in blacks rather than 
at possible behavioral or cultural 
reasons such as sodium intake or 
smoking," Allen says. "We knew, of 
course, that people with darker 
skin have more melanin. Since mel- 
anin is associated with norepine- 
phrine— -a chemical that constricts 
blood vessels and is produced in 
larger quantities when a person is 
under stress^ — we saw this as the 
potential reason that hypertension 
is more common with blacks than 
whites. Our findings show that 
there is a direct relation." 

According to Allen, 38 percent 
of adult blacks in the United States 



are estimated to have chronically 
high blood pressure, compared to 
29 percent of the adult white pcipu- 
lation. Blacks are also more likely 
than whites to die of complications 
from hypertension, 

Allen and his graduate student 
Daniel L. Luxenberg have paired 40 
black and 40 white students who 
were matched by age, sex, medical 
history, diet, habits and fitness 
levels to measure their heart rates 
and pulse amplitudes while under 
stress. 

"All of our subjects had normal 
blood pressure," Allen says. "We 
were trying to look into their bod- 
ies and predict what might happen 
over time." 

The researchers used a cold 
presser test — the placing of a sub- 
ject's hand in ice for 30 seconds 
under controlled conditions — to 
bring abtout the same phvsioJogicaJ 
responses one would experience in 
a stressful situation such as a job 
interview. They found that the 
black subjects would maintain ele- 
vated blood pressure at least ten 
times longer than the white stu- 
dents. 

"We were observing the seeds of 
future health problems by the way 
the subjects were reacting to stress 
in their youth," Allen says. 

According to Allen, most hyper- 
tension patients are treated with 
diuretics, drugs that help the kid- 
neys remove fluid from the body. 




Roger J. Allen 

In most cases this reduces blood 
pressure, thereby decreasing the 
hypertension. In the case of blacks, 
however, with increased norepine- 
phrine causing a longer term of 
blood vessel constriction, a reduc- 
tion of body fluids from the drugs 
causes the vessels to constrict even 
further as a response. "This causes 
the blood vessels to develop a nor- 
malized state of excess constriction 
and may worsen the hypertension," 
Allen says. 

Allen's pilot study was pub- 
lished in the journal Human Stress: 
Current Selected Research. He is con- 
tinuing to pair subjects for his 
research, hoping to eventually have 
data for 100 pairs. He also plans to 
eventually stress test at various 
intervals people who are under- 
going a tanning process to see how 
this effects blood pressure.

Study Provides Clues About 
Milky Way Formation 



A recent College Park astronom- 
ical study of two globular clusters 
provides crucial information about 
the early formation of the Milky 
Way Galaxy and of the time-span 
of its collapse to a disk-shape. 

Results from the study by Roger 
A. Bell, professor and director of 
the Astronomy Program, support 
recent suggestions that the Milky 
Way took three times longer to 
evolve than once ttelievcd. 

Bell's results were published in 
the journal Nature. 

The standard theory of galaxy 
formation, based on a 1962 theoret- 
ical model, calculated the collapse 
time for the Milky Way at one bil- 



lion years. 

Bell's study is the first to suc- 
cessfully measure and compare the 
actual compositions and ages of the 
globular clusters NGC288 and 
NGC362. 

"We provide solid evidence to 
support some previous claims of a 
three billion year age difference 
tjetween the clusters," says Bell. 
'This has implications for setting 
limits on the age of the Galaxy and 
for a better understanding of how 
it formed and collapsed." 

According to Bell, globular clus- 
ters are the oldest objects in the 
galaxy, providing an exceptional 
look at the earliest stages of galaxy 



formation. 

Bell and his colleagues used a 4- 
meter optical telescope in New 
South Wales, Australia to measure 
and compare the compositions of 
the two clusters. With a high- 
resolution spectrograph they 
analyzed visible light emanating 
from the surfaces of 15 red giant 
stars in the two clusters. 

Bell and his group plan to fur- 
ther their studies by analyzing the 
chemical composition of stars in 
other globular clusters of the Milky 
Way.

New Book Examines National Security 
Issues in the 1990s 



The emergence of a new world 
order, based on international eco- 
nomic relations and interdepen- 
dence rather than the long-standing 
conflict lx;tween East and West 
calls for a rethinking of U.S. 
national security issues. 

Michael Nacht, dean of the 
School of Public Affairs, and 
George H. Quester, professor of 



government and politics, along 
with John J. Wei (man, a visiting 
scholar at The Johns Hopkins Uni- 
versity Paul H. Nitze School of 
Advanced International Studies, 
have co-edited a new book focus- 
ing on some of the issues raised by 
the end of the Cold War. 

Challenges to American National 
Security in the 1990s is a collection 



of essays that considers the world 
that will face American policy- 
makers in this decade. Both Nacht 
and Quester also have contributed 
chapters to the twok. Nacht writes 
on "Strategic Arms Control and 
American Security: Not What the 
Strategists Had in Mind," Quester 
writes about "Predicting the Future 
of American Commitments."
