Cohen Appointed First 
College Park Ombuds Officer 

The Faculty Grievance Proce- 
dure, passed by the Campus Senate 
April 30, 1990 and approved by the 
president, creates the ombuds 
officer and specifies that that per- 
son is to act as: "a neutral and 
impartial officer to provide confi- 
dential and informal assistance to 
faculty and administrators in 
resolving concerns related to their 
work...the Ombuds Officer serves 
as a counselor, fact-finder, media-

have an ombuds officer who is not

if any have a faculty member.

first. 1 feel that the independence of 
a full professor is important to my 
ability to do a complete and impar- 
tial job. 

Q, What is an ombuds officer? 
A. Someone who can cut through 
and get to the heart of a problem 
immediately and find a way to try 
to start to resolve it. The official 
position was created to direct the 
new grievance procedure. 
Q. When does it start? 
A. As of September 19, 1991. 
Q. What will your responsibilities 
A. It will be my job to deal with all 

grievances. There is a formal proce- 
dure, but early in the procedure, a 
person can come to the ombuds 
officer and talk. At that point, I 
think the most important part of 
the job will probably be mediation. 
We'd like to handle things as infor- 
mally as possible. That will always 
be my aim. 

Q. Are you an ombuds officer for 
faculty alone? 

A. Yes. But once I get settled, I will 
try to develop a list of resources

State Funds Reduced for Third Year 
In Next Year's Proposed Budget 

The fiscal 1993 current people 
services (CPS) budget request was 
approved by the Board of Regents 
on September 27. Reflecting the un- 
relenting budget shortfall in the 
state, the budget proposal contains 
a major reduction in state general 
funds support to the university for 
the third successive year. The ask- 
ing budget, which must be ap- 
proved by the Maryland Higher 
Education Commission, the gover- 
nor and the legislature before 
taking effect, reveals that state gen- 
eral funds next year will represent 
36.7 percent of the UM System's 
total budget compared with 44.1 

percent in its original FY '91 bud- 

For College Park, the series of 
budget cuts over the past two 
years, along with the reductions in 
the asking budget for next year, 
represent an accumulated effect of 
an 18 percent reduction from the 
FY 1990 base. 

In his statement to the regents. 
President William E. Kirwan de- 
scribed the mounting effects of the 
budget crisis at College Park, say- 
ing that with each successive cut,

Memorial Service to be Held for Ed Azar 

An inter-faith memorial service 
for the late Edward E. Azar will be 
held Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 3 p.m. at 
the West Chapel on the College 
Park campus. 

Azar, a professor in the Depart- 
ment of Government and Politics 
and the founding director of the 
Center of International Develop- 
ment and Conflict Management 
(CIDCM), passed away at his home 

in Washington, DC. in June. 

In addition to directing the 
activities and programs of CIDCM, 
Azar, who came to the university 
in 1981, taught an undergraduate 
course in the Government and Poli- 
tics of the Middle East and a grad- 
uate seminar in the Analysis of 
Protracted Social Conflict for many 

Azar was a noted scholar in the 
field of international relations and 
conflict management. His last 
work, The Management of Protracted 
Social Conflict: Theory and Cases, was 
published in 1990. 

A reception will be held at the 
Rossborough Inn following the 
memorial service. 

Regents Approve FY '93 Budget Request 

ittnltnitvcl frimi pug? I 

the university will lose more out- 
standing students and highly re- 
spected faculty. 

"We'll have to start all over 
building the institution... This is the 
moment of truth for the State of 
Maryland. Does it care about its 
future? Does it care about the 
young people of the State of Mary- 
land?" he said. 

The budget document states the 
need for additional state revenues, 
saying that if program reductions 
slated for next year are to be avoid- 
ed, there should be an increase in 
state revenues from additional 
taxes, with a portion of the 
revenues dedicated to the Univer- 
sity System. 

Regents Alton and Arabian con- 
curred with the System chancellor 
and College Park president in ask- 
ing that the legislature look for 
ways to solve the budget shortfall. 
Regent Alton said, "If there is no 
special session to consider a 
revenue shortfall, then the problem 
cascades. As leaders and citizens, it 
is incumbent upon each of us to go 
to our legislator and say it is un- 
conscionable for them not to go in- 
to special session to look at this 

College Park's State-Supported 
budget request for FY '93 is 
$338,457,401, an overall increase of 
$7.6 million, (2.3 percent) above 
this year's working budget. It in- 
cludes a minimal 1.25 percent merit 
increment for faculty and profes- 
sional staff. 

The budget includes: 

• a $4.2 million decrease in state 
general funds (2 percent reduction), 
due to the loss of $23,4 million in 
general funds for cost containment, 
an increase of $17.2 million for es- 
sential expenditures, and $2 million 
to replace revenue tost by the en- 
rollment reduction plan; 

• a special funds increase of 
$12.6 million to be derived from 
the proposed 17.6 percent increase 
in undergraduate student tuition 
and increases in student health and 
academic services fees; 

• and a federal funds decrease 
of $749,787 related to adjustment in 
indirect cost recovery revenues. 

The $23.4 million reduction in 
state general funds will be made 
up by: 

• an increase of $11.3 million in 
net tuition revenue from the pro- 
posed 17.6 percent tuition hike; 

• elimination of 241 staff posi- 
tions, resulting in salary and fringe 
benefit savings of $8 million; 

• reduction of part-time non-fa- 
culty personnel, resulting in a $1 .4 
million savings; 

• general fund offset of $2 mil- 
lion for downsizing; 

• increases in other non-general 
fund revenues of $677,635. 

Essential expenditures include: 
mandatory base adjustment, 
including salary increments and 
operating inflation, $6.6 million; 
facilities renewal restorations, $5.2 
million; maintenance of effort, $2.2 
million; and operating and equip- 
ping new facilities, $2.7 million. 

In addition to funding these re- 
quirements, $1.4 million of the in- 
creased student tuition revenue 
will be used for financial aid to 

The regents amended the tuition 
policy so that the proposed tuition 
hike, if approved, will be con- 
sidered a surcharge. The issue will 
be revisited by the regents in con- 
sidering the fiscal 1994 budget. 

The regents also approved a 
"Restoration List" for submission to 
the state identifying programs re- 
quested for reinstatement of gen- 
eral funds as the budget request is 
developed by the governor. The 
list, limited to the required $62 mil- 
lion general fund reduction for the 
entire System, has precedence over 
the Over the CPS Request. The list 
asks for the replacement of tuition 
revenue equal to about 12 percent 
of the 16 percent average tuition 
increase; for a System- wide re- 
instatement of expenditure reduc- 
tions amounting to $31.4 million 
that could be used by institutions 
to apply to their individual priori- 
ties; and for College Park, the re- 
instatement of $9.6 million in en- 

The regents also approved an 
Over the CPS Request of $26.4 mil- 
lion. This is a statement of re- 
sources needed by the university to 

continue its effort to achieve and 
sustain national eminence. 

The Over the CPS request calls 
for additional funding for enhanc- 
ing historically black institutions 
($3.8 million); enhancing research 
and graduate and professional pro- 
grams in the Baltimore area ($4.7 
million); improving educational 
opport unities for adults ($3 mil- 
lion); advancing research on the 
environment and biotechnology 
($1.7 million); veterinary medicine 
for College Park ($775,000); tech- 
nology transfer initiatives at Col- 
lege Park and Baltimore ($250,000, 
with $125,000 for College Park), 
and merit salary adjustments ($12 
million), 4 percent. Of the merit in- 
crease, the Over the CPS proposal 
says that only minimal funds were 
available for merit in fiscal '91 (1.25 
percent), no funds in fiscal '92, and 
minimal funding (1.25 percent) is 
proposed for fiscal 1993. 

College Park would receive $4.6 
million in merit salary adjustments 
if the Over the CPS request were to 
be funded — which is unlikely at 
this point.

Faculty Ombuds Officer Appointed Following 
Senate Committee Search 

An Ombuds officer search committee, composed of Stephen 
Brush (History and IPST); James Grunig (Journalism); Anne 
MacLeod (College of Library and Information Services); Barbara 
Meeker (Sociology); and Marvin Scott (Kinesiology) was appointed 
by the Campus Senate in spring semester 1991. MacLeod and 
Grunig had previously served on the Senate committee to establish 
a grievance procedure. The committee began work on April 1 , 1991 
and submitted a report to President Kirwan on July 19, 1991. 
Professor Joel Cohen of the mathematics department was 
appointed by President William E. Kirwan in September.

where others can go for various 
kinds of help. The most difficult 
thing for anyone is knowing where 
to go with a problem to try to start 
solving it. 

Q. Why were you chosen for this 

A. Probably because I was presi- 
dent of the Faculty Guild, and I 
handled exactly the same kinds of 
things that 1 expect Cm going to be 
handling as ombuds officer. 
Q, Are you going to concentrate 
on academic issues as opposed to 
emotional, psychological, or oilier 

A. 1 don't want to draw a specific 
line, because I'd rather have some- 
one call mc and I'd say I can't do 
that, rather than someone not call 
me when I could have helped. I 
want to be inclusive rather than 
exclusive and listen to associate 
and classified personnel and try to 
direct them to appropriate places 
for help — students too, if I can. 
Q. Can you give me some exam- 
ples of situations you might 
expect to deal with? 
A. There will be situations such as 
when a person is denied leave, so 
they will come to me and ask, "Did 
they have a right to deny me 
leave? Is there something 1 can do 
about it?" Perhaps a person has 
done great work this year but 
he/she got a smaller than average 
raise. "What's going on?", 1 would 

For promotions, there's a totally 
separate process. Officially, I don't 
have anything to do with that pro- 
cess, but I would be able to direct 
someone where to file a grievance 
or show them the rules governing 

Q. What about racial discrimina- 
tion, sexual harassment, problems 
of that sort? 

A. We have the Human Relations 
Office. If someone comes to me 
with a case usually handled by that 
office, 1 would say, "Have you 
talked to Gladys Brown?" 
Q. Will you direct them to the 
appropriate site and not handle 
cases directly? 

A. I may or may not. Someone may 
say they don't want to deal with an 
office I have suggested. That's fine. 
In most cases, people have a 
choice. But 1 won't send anyone 
away. I would give them informa- 
tion and leave the choice up to 
them. But mediation is going to be 
the main process. 
Q. What do you mean by media- 

A. Informal action. I like to talk 
more than I like to sit down and 
write. I like to head off situations 
before they become major prob- 

Q. You're talking about personal 
relationships being very important 
in the ombuds process? 
A. Yes. Many problems that hap 

Joel Cohen 

pen are not because some adminis- 
trator is willfully doing something 
wrong. Sometimes it is because he 
or she simply has not thought 
about a specific issue or doesn't 
know that they are supposed to do 
something. So many mings of this 
sort can be handled through simple 

Q. What if you stumble into cases 
that are criminal or that somebody 
should be told about? 
A. I will have a lawyer. That law- 
yer will be only for this office, and 
there will be absolute guarantees 
that what he/she does for this 
office will be apart from any other 
legal matters they conduct. 
Q. How long will you hold this 

A. The original document called for 
no time limit. I suggested that a 
finite term wouldn't be a bad idea. 
The time period is three years. 
Q. How much time do you put 
into the job? 

A. Theoretically, it is supposed to 
be quarter-time. That relieves me of 
one class, but that hasn't started 
this semester because I had already 
agreed to teach the courses I'm cur- 
rently teaching. If it turns out that 
there are many cases, we'll shift the 
percentage of time. 
Q. What about crank calls or peo- 
ple who are chronic complainers? 
A. I'm going to talk to them and 
see if I can get to the root of a com- 
plaint. I see myself as an advocate 
for making sure that a person is 
heard fairly. I want to make sure 
that nobody ever has something 
happen because they didn't know 
what their rights were. 
Q. What will be the toughest 
things you are going to handle? 
A. The toughest 1 suppose might be 
related to junior faculty having 
some problem with a chair and 
being afraid to say something. Or 
perhaps even being afraid to talk to 
other people in the department 
about a problem and having 
nowhere else to go but to me. 

Q. What about any conflicts of 
interest if someone complains 
about one of your friends? 
A. That's tough. If it came down to 
the fact that it couldn't be handled 
in a friendly manner, then I'd find 
someone else to handle it, but I 
can't think that this would really 

Q. What about administrators? 
A. I feel certain that 1 could go to 
the administrators. But again, 
remember, all I'm pushing for is 
fairness in a hearing. I'm not say- 
ing, look you've got to give this 
guy a raise, I'm saying, reexamine, 
reopen this thing and really see 
why this happened and if neces- 
sary, convince a grievance panel. 
Q. Won't there be times when you 
will simply have to tell a person, 
"I'm sorry, your case has no 

A. 1 think 1 would advise a person 
that I thought they really had a 
weak case and that if it went to 
grievance, they probably would not 
win. But I'm going to offer help 
right up to the end, as long as they 
want it. 

Q. It seems as though you will 
have to know about every univer- 
sity procedure, about everything 
that goes on? 

A. Right. Luckily I am omniscient 
and omnipotent, and these are use- 
ful qualities. Seriously, I'm going to 
have to get all the procedures. That 
may be the first task. 
Q. Who will evaluate how well 
you are doing? 

A. I assume the senate executive 
committee and the president. 
Q. How will they know? 
A. I don't know how you evaluate 
the ombuds officer. I suppose if I'm 
not handling the situations well, 
administrators and faculty will 
start complaining. 
Q. Where can people find you? 
A. Just call 405-7876. My office is 
Room 4409, Math Building.

Gene Barth: Making History 
Come Alive 

For 24 years. Gene Barth has 
worked in the Physics Print Shop 
where he is print shop supervisor. 

His nearly quarter century of ex- 
perience there makes him some- 
thing of a repository for the depart- 
ment's corporate memory. But it is 
the period between the French and 
Indian Wars and the end of the 
North American fur trading era in 
the mid-1800s and the day-to-day 
lives of the period's trappers, 
scouts and mountain men that 
sparks him. 

Barth is deeply immersed in the 
historic re-enactment business. 

A life-long hunter, he says he be- 
came increasingly disenchanted 
with modern, high power hunting 
rifles. He turned to the challenges 
posed by hunting with single shot, 
muzzle-loading, black powder- 
burning, flint-lock muskets. 

He says he became interested in 
black powder shooting well before 
it gained widespread popularity 
during the American Revolutionary 
War Bi-centennial celebrations. His 
interest in and involvement with 
the history of the period was a 
natural outgrowth. 

One of Barth's 18th century 
personae is that of a Virginia 
frontiersman, a Loyalist scout 
serving with the 71st MacKenzie's, 
a Scottish unit that fought with the 
British during the Revolution. He 
carries a .50 cal . Tennessee "poor- 
boy" muzzle-loading rifle, wears 
deer skin leggings, moccasins and a 
coyote-pelt hat, and affects such 
trappings as tomahawk and beads. 

"I feel good about this outfit 
because all the paraphernalia are 
things I found in the woods or 
bartered for. The deer skins come 
from deer I shot and dressed out. I 
didn't go out and buy any of this 

"Anybody with a pair of cowboy 
boots and blue jeans can pass as a 
Civil War re-enactor," he says of 
what has become an increasingly 
popular and historically demand- 
ing passion for many, "But you've 
really got to know what you're 
doing to outfit yourself for the Rev- 
olutionary and French and Indian 
Wars period." 

Barth and his entire family take 
historical re-enactment seriously. 
His son, a freshman at UMBC, is a 
bagpiper for the 71st Frasiers, 
another Scots Revolutionary War 
unit. An older daughter, a senior at 
the College of the Atlantic in 
Maine, plays what he euphem- 
istically calls "a camp follower," 
and his wife and younger daughter 
take on the roles of frontier wife 
and daughter. His brother Terry, a 
campus police officer, also helps 
out by teaching a black powder 
shotgun class and visiting local 
schools dressed in buckskins. 

Barth takes part in regional 
"rendezvous" re-enactments of the 
fur-trading era. Some 2,000 to 4,000 
participants, all of whom must 
dress in pre-1 840 style clothing, 
attend. Last summer the Eastern 
regional rendezvous was held on 

Martin's Mountain in Cumberland; 
this August it took place in the 
Finger Lakes region of New York 

Barth also teaches a hunter safety 
course for the Natural Resource 
Police. Passing the course is 
required to obtain a hunting 
license. He also teaches an 
advanced black powder shooting 
class and, to make it more authen- 
tic, dresses as a Cumberland -based 
fur trapper on his way back to the 
mountains from Annapolis where 
he has sold his furs and purchased 

He and his wife prepare a meal of 
deer meat stew, apples, homemade 
bread, coffee, honey and jerky for 
his students. "We want to give 
them a taste of what it was like 

Gene Barth 

when their rifle (the single shot 
muzzle loader) was the firearm of 
choice," he says. 

Barth also regularly visits area 
school classrooms, Cub Scout meet- 
ings, and summer camps where he 
explains what life in the 18th 
century was like. 

'The school history books don't 
talk about the little things," he says. 
"What was everyday life like for 
the people of that time? I talk 
about basic survival by comparing 
life today with life 200 years ago. 
The schools just don't address 
these issues, and most teachers are 
tickled to death to have someone 
come into their class to talk about

Lecture, Book Signing to Highlight 
Schoenbaum' s Revised Shakespeare's Lives 

Sam Schoenbaum, Distinguished 
Professor of Renaissance Literature 
at College Park and one of the 
world's great scholars on the life of 
William Shakespeare, will be 
discussing the revised version of 
his classic Shakespeare's Lives on 
Oct. 8 as part of a lecture series 
sponsored by the Smithsonian Resi- 
dent Association Program. After 
the lecture he will be available to 
sign the revised book. 

The lecture begins at 8 p.m. Oct. 
8 in Baird Auditorium in the 
Natural History Building. His lec- 
ture is entitled "Shakespeare 
Through the Magnifying Glass of a 
Literary Detective." 

Schoenbaum, who is the author 
of William Shakespeare: A Documen- 
tary Life and American Advisory 
Editor of the Oxford Complete 
Works of William Shakespeare, is 
especially fond of Shakespeare's 
Lives, which was originally pub- 
lished in 1970 and is a quest 
throughout history for Shakespeare 
the man. 

"I have a certain affection for 
this book, itself," says Schoenbaum. 
"It was so much fun to write, and I 

Distinguished Professor Sam Schoenbaum 

hope that the pleasure I had in 
writing it shows." 

The new abridged edition, 
which has been trimmed from 800 
to some 600 pages, includes new 

information "sprinkled here and 
there throughout the text." 

"A lot has happened in 20 
years," says Schoenbaum. 

Shakespeare's Lives offers fresh 
and dramatic information about a 
host of controversial characters and 
incidents, as it spans four centuries 
and many lives, including those of 
Dr, Johnson, Coleridge, Keats, 
Carlyle, Hawthorne, Arnold, Wilde, 
Shaw, Freud, Joyce, and 
Malcolm X. 

"This book covers all of human- 
ity," says Schoenbaum. "To write a 
book that takes a subject of Shakes- 
peare's time to this day, as well as 
dealing with major figures in litera- 
ture, has been an awfully lot to dig 
into. But I've had a lot of enjoy- 
ment in writing this book." 

Schoenbaum was appointed one 
of 12 Life Trustees for the Shake- 
speare Birthplace Trust at Stratford- 
on-Avon in 1984. He is also a trus- 
tee emeritus of the Folger Shake- 
speare Library, a former president 
of the Shakespeare Association of 
America and on the advisory com- 
mittee of the Shakespeare Institute 
at Stratfordnsn-Avon. 

Artist Scholarship Benefit Series 
Celebrates Tenth Anniversary 

The Guarneri Suing Quartet is featured in the 

It has become such an important 
part of the College Park cultural 
fabric that it is hard to believe that 
it is only ten years old. How did 
we ever do without it? 

In its present form, the Artist 
Scholarship Benefit Series has been 
bestowing its dual blessings — 
world class performances by the 
university's mu I ti -gifted music fac- 
ulty and scholarships for students 
from the funds it raises — on the 
College Park community for the 
last ten years. Developed from an 
earlier program originally created 
by Paul Traver (Music), the series 
has been under the direction of 
Suzanne Beicken (Music) since 
1981, and under her continuing 
leadership, it will branch out to 
reach new audiences this year. 

Oct. 19 concert. 

Part of the branching out is 
through the diversity of program- 
ming. This year's series includes 
music for opera-lovers, chamber 
music fans and jazz aficionados. 

And part of reaching new audi- 
ences is through actual geography. 
Four of the five concerts will be 
held in Tawes Recital Hall, as 
usual, but one of the concerts will 
be performed in the elegant Terrace 
Theater at the Kennedy Center. 

Beicken is particularly pleased 
about the Kennedy Center concert. 
"It will be a music faculty show- 
case," she says. "I'm really excited 
about showing a larger Washington 
audience what wonderful artists 
we have at College Park." 

The 1991-92 season showcases 
some of the university's outstand- 

ing performers and includes the 
following concerts; 

• A Guarneri String Quartet 
gala with Santiago Rodriguez, 
guest pianist on Oct. 19 at 8 p.m. in 
Tawes Recital Hall; 

» The Maryland Opera Studio's 
productions of Vaughan Williams' 
Riders to the Sea and Weisgall's The 
Stronger, Leon Major, director and 
William Hudson, conductor on 
Nov. 24 at 3 p.m. in Tawes Recital 

• Two performances of the ever- 
popular "Happy Birthday, Mozart" 
celebration featuring Thomas 
Schumacher playing Mozart's 
Piano Concerto in C Major, No. 21, 
K. 467 on Feb. 8 at 8 p.m. and Feb. 
9 at 3 p.m.; 

•The Tenth Anniversary Sur- 
prise Spectacular showcasing 
Department of Music faculty on 
March 31 at 8 p.m. in the Terrace 
Theater at Kennedy Center; and 

■An Evening of Jazz with 
Ronnie Wells, Jazz Vocalist and 
Ron ElHsron, Jazz Pianist on May 8 
at 8 p.m. in Tawes Recital Hall. 

Individual tickets are $15 each 
{$9 for students and senior citi- 
zens). Money-saving subscriptions 
for the full five concerts are $65 
each ($38 for students and senior 
citizens). For a brochure and fur- 
ther information, call the Music 
Department Concert Office at 405- 

Beicken has clearly has enjoyed 
her ten years with the benefit ser- 
ies. "Providing outstanding con- 
certs for the campus and commun- 
ity — what a great way to raise 
money for scholarships!" she says.

Tips on Trash 

Acting Graduate Studies Dean Jack Goldhaber recently pointed 
out that one of the dangers of the new system of setting out trash 
in the halls for pick up is that curious people might go into the 
trash for information. Goldhaber suggests that before you leave 
your trash outside your door, you should remove all confidential 
material such as references to grades, potential exam questions, or 
personnel matters and dispose of them in a departmental shredder 
or in some other secure way. 

Dietary Clues Can Boost 
Oyster Population 

Glenn Patterson 

As recently as the 1960s, the 
Chesapeake Bay surrendered a mil- 
lion bushels of oysters annually to 
watermen. Since then, the oyster 
harvest has fallen to current levels 
of less than 400,000 bushels per 

What led to this decline? Scien- 
tists point to the sedimentation of 
oyster bars, changes in salinity, dis- 
ease, overharvesting, nutrient addi- 
tions to the bay, and oyster nutri- 
tional deficiencies. 

While all of these factors have 
probably contributed to the oyster's 
downfall, it is the last item — oyster 
nutritional deficiencies — that has 
caught the inquisitive eye of botany 
professor Glenn Patterson. 

Aided by a Maryland Agricul- 
tural Experiment Station grant, 
Patterson is investigating the rela- 
tionship between dietary sterols 
and oyster growth rates. 

Sterols, chemical compounds 
similar to cholesterol, are said to be 
present in every cell in our body; 
they play essential roles in humans 
and oysters alike. 

"Over 95 percent of the sterols in 
humans is in the form of cholester- 
ol," explains Patterson. "In oysters, 
cholesterol is about 30 percent of 
total sterols." But humans have the 
ability to build their own sterols 
from fats and other dietary compo- 
nents. Oysters, lacking this sterol 
synthesizing ability, are entirely 
dependent upon the microscopic 
algae that make up their diet. 

Patterson began investigating 
sterol synthesis in algae about 30 
years ago. 

"I noticed in the (scientific) lit- 
erature that oysters, mussels and 
other mollusks couldn't synthesize 
sterols," he says. "Being near the 
bay, I became curious about the 
relationship between an oyster's 
algal diet and its growth rate." 

There are thousands of algal 
species in the Chesapeake Bay. 
Some are too large for filter- feeding 
oysters. Others, like microscopic 
diatoms, are the ideal size for 

In all, perhaps several dozen 
algal species have been tested for 
their effectiveness as oyster food. 
Patterson, along with collaborator 
Gary Wikfors of the National 
Marine Fisheries Service, is in the 
midst of analyzing the sterol con- 
tent of those species. 

The pair's discovery of a match 
between rapid oyster growth and 
the presence of a beneficial type of 
sterol may indicate that an algae's 
success as an oyster food is linked 
to the presence of that kind of 

Patterson sees various benefits 
from such a match. Since sterol 
composition is known to be similar 

in closely related species of algae, 
subsequent feeding studies could 
concentrate on those related spe- 
cies. And this research offers bene- 
fits for oyster aquaculture and wild 

Oysters in the Chesapeake Bay 
usually take three to five years to 
reach the minimum market size of 
three inches. But oysters fed pre- 
pared food pellets only grow one- 
third that fast. 

"This indicates that we don't 
fully understand oyster nutritional 
requirements," Patterson says. 
'There is something missing in the 
diet that we're giving them." 

He also notes that human 
nutrient additions to the bay — 
nitrogen, phosphorus and other 
chemicals — may have shifted the 
bay's algal composition. 

These pollutants may promote 
the growth of weedy algal species 
not suitable for oysters, possibly at 
the expense of diatoms and other 
beneficial species. 

"Thus the types of algae in the 
bay may be becoming less attrac- 
tive to the oyster," notes Patterson. 
His research can help alleviate this 
problem in several ways. 

"Once we know an oyster's ster- 
ol requirements, we may be able to 
supplement its diet, replacing what 
was lost by the unavailability of 
certain algae," he says. "We can 
also target for reduction the nutri- 
ents that detrimentally affect those 
algae that are crucial to the oyster

practices in a variety of Japanese 
educational settings with a particu- 
lar emphasis on teacher-student 
relationships and the role of teach- 
ers as political, economic and 
intercultural stewards for the 

Finkelstein will also lecture at 
selected universities on aspects of 
U.S. education history and policy. 
This is a singular honor for a for- 
eign researcher and is reserved for 
a small number of "distinguished 
senior scientists" who have done 

work of sufficient merit to invite 
cooperation with Japan's most dis- 
tinguished researchers. 

Finkelstein says that she sees the 
fellowship award as an opportunity 
to make conceptual advances in the 
evolving fields of comparative his- 
tory and intercultural education 

"We are in the early stages of a 
reconstruction of traditional scho- 
larly categories, which will inte- 
grate hitherto unimaginable dimen- 
sions into the way we think about 
our work and the world," she says.

In Celebration of Our Community: 
Remarks by President William E. Kirwan 

The following were the 
remarks made on September 24 at 
the President's Commission on 
Women's Affairs presentation of 
the Woman of the Year Award. 

Each fall I look forward to this 
occasion as one of the year's real 
highlights. It affords the institution 
an opportunity to pay tribute to the 
significant contributions of the 
Woman of the Year; to highlight 
our institutional progress toward 
creating a truly equitable environ- 
ment for women; and to welcome 
new women faculty and staff as 
colleagues to our community. 

This year this event has a special 
meaning for me. We have all been 
distressed by the steady stream of 
bad news about our budget. Cuts 
in excess of $12 million already this 
year — cuts that are on top of a $26 
million reduction last year; fur- 
loughs for members of the faculty 
and staff. The negative news has 
descended upon us at such a pace 
and with such volume that there is 
a sense in which we are numb, 
unable to comprehend fully how 
all of this will affect our lives and 
our institution. 

But this event serves as an 
important reminder that our uni- 
versity and the values we hold 
dear have timeless qualities that 
transcend the vagaries of state bud- 
gets. There have been worse eco- 
nomic times in the institution's 
past; undoubtedly, there will be 
worse times in the future. What we 

celebrate on this occasion are quali- 
ties that are eternal in nature. 

We celebrate today the dedica- 
tion and accomplishments of a per- 
son like Marilyn Berman. An indi- 
vidual who does what she does for 
this institution not because of 
resources, a person who gives of 
herself — not from the budget — to 
make this a more excellent place. 

We celebrate today the commit- 
ment of this institution to a certain 
ideal that has nothing to do with 
money. It is an ideal that says we 
at College Park care about individ- 
ual opportunity and accomplish- 
ment irrespective of gender or race. 
We at College Park affirm the dig- 
nity and value of each individual, 
not the irrelevant distinctions of 
our physical characteristics. We at 
College Park seek to be — indepen- 
dent of budgets — a community that 
nurtures and draws upon the tal- 
ents of all its members without 
regard to considerations of race, 
gender, nationality or sexual orien- 

And, finally, we celebrate today 
the arrival of new members to this 
community — faculty and staff who 
bring fresh talent and new perspec- 
tives, people who have chosen to 
join us because they share our com- 
mitment to the ideals we hold so 

So this year, let me not review 
the impressive progress we have 
made on women's issues over the 
past year — -though impressive it is. 
Rather, I would like to simply 

express appreciation to individuals 
and groups whose dedication to 
principles and ideals enable the 
institution to advance even when 
resources recede: to Josephine 
Withers and the members of the 
President's Commission on 
Women's Affairs for the advice 
they provide me and for the leader- 
ship they bring to the campus; to 
the Greer Committee for its contin- 
uing oversight of our ambitious 
program to enhance opportuni ties 
for women at College Park; to 
Diana Jackson for agreeing to carry 
on the role so ably performed by 
Betty Schmitz and for developing 
such an impressive year- long 
agenda despite the reduction in our 
funding; and to all of you for your 
commitment to the change we 
intend to effect at College Park. 

Today's celebration — coming at 
the height of our budget discon- 
tent — has given me a valuable per- 
spective, a certain inner peace. 
Over time, our fiscal circumstances 
will rise and fall. But as long as we 
hold onto our institutional ideals of 
excellence, equity and opportunity 
we will have talented people like 
Marilyn Berman to celebrate and 
wonderful new faculty and staff to 
welcome to our midst. 

So, even in the face of our fiscal 
misfortunes, let us rejoice today in 
the talent and dedication of our 
community and in what we stand 
for as an institution. 

Some Good News... From Provost J. Robert Dorfman 

The following is from remarks 
made by J. Robert Dorfman, vice 
president for Academic Affairs 
and provost, at the event honoring 
Marilyn Berman as College Park's 
Woman of the Year on September 

It seems as if all the news we 
are hearing lately is bad. So, it is an 
especial pleasure for me to note 
that the preliminary figures on our 
hiring for the 1991-92 academic 
year show that almost exactly one- 
half of new tenured and tenure- 
track faculty are women. Last year, 
women made up about one-third of 
new hires. Of the total 25 newcom- 
ers, 12 are women.... 

We have very few new admini- 
strators this year, probably a good 
sign in these difficult times. I 
would like to single out Acting 
Dean of Education, Jean Hebeler. 

Many of our departments are 
under the capable guidance of 
women Acting Chairs, and. ..I will 
say thank you for accepting the 
challenges of administration at this 

Last year, 1 noted that our pro- 
motion figures did not imitate our 
hiring initiatives. This year, we did 
better. Eleven women, or just 
under 30 percent of the total, were 
promoted to full professor. Eight 
women, or 42 percent of the total 
were promoted to associate profes- 
sor. These percentages reflect a 
generally upward trend. 

Given the present budget situa- 
tion, none of us can with certainty 
make promises about the future. 
But the budget does not and cannot 
and will not be permitted to affect 
the principles underlying our 
actions. We will continue our 

efforts to secure full representation 
for women across campus, and in 
the highest academic positions in 
the disciplines. We will continue 
our efforts to expand the curricu- 
lum. We will continue to ask tough 
questions and seek honest answers 
about the historical exclusion of 
women's perspectives, knowledge 
and achievements from the overrid- 
ing value system of our society. We 
will hold ourselves to the highest 
standards of intellectual discourse 
and freedom of expression. Those 
goals are not trapped within the 
state-supported budget, and we can 
carry them out despite financial 
setback. But they are collective 
goals. Administrations may state 
them, but the work of realizing 
them is carried out across the cam- 
pus, and by all of you.
