Senate PCC Committee Charged with 
Reviewing Academic Program Proposals 

When a proposal for elimina- 
tion, reduction, moving, or merging 
of an academic program or unit is 
received by the Campus Senate, the 
Senate's by-laws require review by 
the General Committee on Pro- 
grams, Curricula, and Courses 
<PCC) prior to consideration by the 
Campus Senate itself. 

The provost, the deans, the Aca- 
demic Planning Advisory Commit- 
tee (APAC), and a number of ad hoc 
committees have been engaged in 
considering such program actions, 
and it is anticipated that the Cam- 
pus Senate will begin to receive 
such proposals shortly. 

The Senate Executive Committee 
has given the PCC Committee the 
charge reproduced below. The PCC 
Committee is responsible for sched- 
uling its consideration of each pro- 
posal fonvarded to it. The Senate 
Office (405-5805) v^all assist the 
PCC Committee in publicizing each 
deadline for receipt of written com- 
ments and each public hearing or 
open committee meeting.

Maryland at Risk 

University Budget 
Set for November 

As a giant wave of furloughs, 
layoffs and devastating cuts in 
departmental operating budgets 
has washed over the campus dur- 
ing the past 14 months, more and 
more people have asked, "What can 
1 do?" 

Now they have an answer. 

They can save the date of Mon- 
day, November 25 to participate in 
the university's planned Budget 
Education Day, "Maryland at Risk" 
is the theme for the massive day- 
long education and information 
day designed also as a call to 
action that asks members of the 
campus community to make their 
voices reverberate all the way to 
Annapolis on the need for greater 
state support for public higher edu- 
cation in Maryland. 

The goal of the day is to edu- 
cate, enlighten, and empower stu- 
dents, faculty, staff and university 
friends about the devastating 
impact of the $40 million cut in 
state-support the university has 
sustained over the past two years 
and examine how this funding 
reduction is slowing the univer- 
sity's ability to become one of the 
best public universities in the 

As part of the day-long educa- 
tional campaign, organizers hope 
that faculty will voluntarily devote 
a portion of each class session to 
expanding students' understanding 
of the impact and implications of 
the massive budget cuts that have 
resulted in an 18 percent reduction 
in state support over the past two 

Along with the individual class- 
room discussions, an all-day teach- 
in will take place in the Student 
Union. The teach-in will feature a 
series of panels and individual 
speakers including faculty, staff, 
students, alumni and legislators 

Education Day 

who will be invited to look at the 
budget process and the current 
status of higher education in the 
state, review the impact of budget 
shortfalls on College Park and 
ultimately on the citizens of the 
state, and discuss what can be done 
to change the current fiscal 

A campus- wide noontime rally 
has been designed as a massive call 
to action, an opportunity for all 
members of the campus commun- 
ity to express their opinions and 
show support for increased fund- 
ing for the university. Those 
attending vrill have a chance to 
receive information on calling and 
writing legislators and will be able 
to learn more about and become 
involved in a planned march on 
Annapolis. Alumni, parents, mem- 
bers of the state legislature, the 
business community, and Mary- 
land citizens are invited to partici- 
pate in the noon rally and attend 
the teach-in in the Student Union. 

The "Maryland at Risk" day is 
being chaired by Bob Lissitz, chair- 
elect of the Campus Senate. Joan 
Wood, executive administrative 
aide in Arts and Humanities, and 
Dean of the College of Arts and 
Humanities Rot>ert Griffith are 
providing staff support. The event 
is sponsored by the Student 
Government Association, the Grad- 
uate Student Government, and the 
Campus Senate, which passed a 
resolution last month calling for 
such a university budget education 

Everyone is asked to watch Out- 
look for further information on 
plans for the budget education day.

Keep the Dream Alive 

by Robert W. Lissitz, Chair of 
Governmental Affairs Committee, 
and Chair Elect of the Campus 
Senate, and Patricia Moreland, 
Chair of the Staff Affairs 

The University of Maryland at 
College Park has made steady 
progress in its climb to become a 
truly first-class university. As two 
members of the campus commun- 
ity, we have seen the changes first 
hand and they have been dramatic. 
We have all witnessed the 
increased quality of our students, 
and the remarkable increases in 
productivity by the staff as well as 
seeing the climb in national and 
international visibihtv of our facul- 

These changes on campus were 

not a coincidence. They were the 
result of an agreement with the 
State of Maryland. The legislature 
defined College Park to be the 
home of the flagship campus of the 
University System. The College 
Park enhancement plan assumed 
$100 million dollars in additional 
state support. In 1988, the legisla- 
ture understood that the well-being 
of the state is directly dependent 
upon having a first class university. 
Attracting new businesses and sup- 
porting existing ones depends 
upon having an environment that 
includes access to the highest qual- 
ity of expertise. 

We have now sustained budget 
cute of $40 million dollars. We 
have instituted furlough days for 
faculty, staff and administrators 
earning more than $25,000. Stu- 
dente are paying almost 18% more 

in tuition. We have begun laying 
off employees and anticipate the 
need to lay off 241 by next July. 
Teaching and research services are 
being reduced or eliminated, 
including reduced access to photo- 
copying, reductions in phone ser- 
vice, laboratory equipment, and art 
studio supplies. Scholarship oppor- 
tunities also are being reduced and 
the effect upon attracting students 
has been immediate. Some of our 
best faculty are being targeted by 
other institutions and we have 
already lost a number of very good 
members of the academic com- 

The fiscal crisis will probably 
not be a temporary one. The impact 
on the campus has already been 
severe and will take many years to 
reverse, even without further bud- 
get cuts. Attracting the best stu- 
dents to campus is not only a mat- 
ter of having funding but is also a.i 
issue of image. If prospective stu- 
dents think that College Park is a 
campus that will not be able to 
support their best efforts, they will 
not come here. 

It takes a long time to build a 
great university, but a short time to 
bring it down. College Park's prog- 
ress must be preserved. There are 
responsibilities that we as members 
of the campus must shoulder. This 
includes a careful exanninahon of 
what we are doing to see that it is 
the most cost-effective way of 
doing business. We have the obli- 
gation to help the state of Mary- 
land and are committed to doing 

Kirwan Asks for Parking 
Report Delay 

President William E. Kirwan has 
asked the Campus Senate to 
suspend further consideration of 
the Campus Parking Report (Out- 
took, Sept. 16) because of the uncer- 
tainty of the university's FY 1992 
and FY 1993 budgets. 
On Oct. 18 the Campus Senate's 
Executive Committee agreed to Kir- 
wan's request and will not have the 
report considered by the Campus 
Affairs Committee this semester. 
According to Campus Senate Chair 
Gerald Miller, the Executive Com- 

mittee took the action because of 
"the many concerns expressed by 
members of the campus com- 
munity on the parking issues 
raised in the report, notably the 
size of the parking fees proposed 
and the nature of the fee schedule.' 
In his request for the delay, 
Kirwan suggested reviewing the 
matter at the end of the semester 
and deciding at that time how to 
proceed writh consideration of the 

At the same time, it is in the 

interest of the state to see that we 
remain a flagship campus in reali- 
ty, not just in name. In order to 
sustain excellence at the university 
the state needs to solve its financial 
crisis. The state should honor the 
Maryland higher education Com- 
mission recommendation that we 
be held harmless from budget cuts. 
On behalf of the Governmental 
Affairs Committee of the Campus 
Senate, we ask each of you to 
encourage your state legislators to 
either generate new sources of rev- 
enue or to divert existing funds to 
Higher Education and particularly 
to College Park. 

Each Campus Senate member 
has been sent a package of infor- 
mation that will support this effort. 
Each senator has a list of state leg- 
islators, a guideline for writing let- 
ters, and a copy of the College Park 
information bulletin recently issued 
by the president's office. Please 
write to your legislator and encour- 
age him or her to secure funding to 
keep the 1988 legislative dream 
alive and make it a reality. The 
state of Maryland greatly benefits 
from a strong comprehensive 
research, teaching, and service 
institution at College Park.

Senate Committee to Review Proposed Program Cuts 

a»iti>!tivel friim pajii- I 

form on April 30, 1991). The latter 

document provides protections for 
the faculty and students of a pro- 
gram, and it provides that the fol- 
lowing considerations be employeti 
in the review: 

a. The centrality of each program 
or course of study to the mission of 
this institution or to the mission of 
the college, school, or department 
within which it is located; 

b. The academic strength and qual- 
ity of the academic program or 
unit, and of its faculty in terms of 
national ratings; 

c. The complementarity of the aca- 
demic program or department and 
the work done therein to some 
essential program or function per- 
formed in this institution; 

d. The duplication of work done in 
the academic program or depart- 
ment by work done in other pro- 
grams or departments elsewhere 
within the University of Maryland 

e. The student demand and projec- 
ted enrollment in the subject matter 
taught in the program or unit; 

f. Tlie current and predicted com- 
parative cost analysis /effectiveness 

of the program or unit; and 
g. Such other pertinent factors as 
the committee deems proper, after 
consultation with the Senate Execu- 
tive Committee. 

The Criteria for Planning men- 
tioned above were developed by 
the Senate Executive Committee in 
accord with provision g of the Pro- 

2. Review the resource analysis 
provided by the Academic Plan- 
ning Advisory Committee (APAC) 
that accompanies the proposal, 
both for the immediate and for the 
long-term (five-year) savings, in the 
context of the redirection of 
resources from the less critical to 
the more critical program needs of 
the university. 

3, Publicly solicit and receive 
advice and comment on each pro- 
posal from the directly affected 
unit(s) and their constihicncies, 
from the PCC committee or gover- 
nance body of the unit's college as 
appropriate, and from the campus 
community. At least two weeks' 
public notice should be given of 
either a public hearing or an open 
committee meeting on each pro- 

posal and of the deadline for 
receipt of written input. Affected 
units should be notified directly 
and public notices should be 
placed in Outlook and in the Dia- 

B. Prepariitg a recommendation 
(or set of recommendations) for 
Senate action concerning each 
recommendation in each such pro-

mittee may also wish to forward 
recommendations concerning relat- 
ed profjosals or common issues 
involved in the elimination, reduc- 
tion, moving or merger of academ- 
ic programs or units. All such rec- 
ommendations should be forward- 
ed to the Senate Executive 

It is the desire of the Senate 
Executive Committee that the PCC 
Committee submit i ts recommenda-

between Europe and North and 
South America, the university's 
Center for International Develop- 
ment and Conflict Management 
(CIDCM) is hosting an internation- 
al dialogue on Nov, 4 at the Center 
of Adult Education on the College 
Park campus. 

The Nov. 4 dialogue, which is 
part of a five-day conference to be 
held at various sites Oct. 28 
through Nov. 5, will include dis- 
cussion of such topics as "Factors 
Affecting Successful Democratiza- 
tion," "Resurgence of Repressed 
Memories," and "Implications for 
Literature and Art During Demo- 
cratization" by such speakers as 

Polish writer and Solidarity found-

The Batuz Foundation, which 
was established in Germany by H- 
ungarian- American artist Batuz, 
has chosen CIDCM to become the 

foundation's repository and archiv- 
ist in the United States for corre- 
spondence written by prominent 
individuals in their respective 
fields of Hterature, art, politics and 

"The primary purpose of the 
Batuz Foundation and its out- 
growth, the Societe Imaginaire, is 
to promote inter-regional and inter- 
cultural understanding among 
leaders in such fields as art and 
literature, who are interested in the 
attainment of world peace," says 
Murray Polakoff, acting director of 

The conference is also being 
sponsored and hosted by the 
Friedrich Ebert Foundation and 
Meridian House International.

Golden Key Honorees 

Several university faculty members have been selected as honor- 
ary members of Golden Key National Honor Society. Honorees 
include Katherine Beardsley, assistant dean of the college of 
Behavioral and Social Sciences; Jack Fracasso, associate director of 
undergraduate admissions; Jane Fiori Lawrence, assistant director 
of the University Honors Program; and Daniel Levitan, professor in 
the Department of Health Education. The new members will be 
officially recognized at a reception on November 6 at 7:30 p.m. in 
the Grand Ballroom of the Stamp Student Union, 

Responding to the Needs of 
Graduate Students 

Swimming a long-distance race 
in the Chesapeake Bay was not the 
only challenge Shelly Stein, a Ph.D. 
candidate in speech com- 
munications, faced last year. 

As president of the Graduate 
Student Government (GSG), Stein 
faced the equally daunting task of 
representing the diverse body of 
9,000 graduate students who study 
at College Park. 

Stein, noiv in her fourth year of 
doctoral studies, first became 
involved with what was then called 
the Graduate Student Association 
in 1990 when she had some ques- 
tions about her role as a teaching 
assistant. She took a full-time assis- 
tantship with the GSG last year 
and worked there 20 hours a week. 

A policy on teaching assistant 
standards and supervision evalu- 
ations, passed by the Campus 
Senate, was just one of many GSG 
accomplishments last year. Stein, 
who also is involved in training 
teaching assistants in the Depart- 
ment of Speech Communications, 
felt this was badly needed. 

Another successful event was 
Graduate Research Interaction Day 
(GRID), an opportunity for gradu- 
ate students from throughout the 
campus to have their research 
judged by the university com- 

The economic recession and 
budget cuts also weighed heavily 
on graduate students' minds dur- 
ing the year. Stein says that many 
were worried about the future of 
their programs and a reduction in 
the number of research opportuni- 
ties and teaching assistantships 

"We've been working with the 
graduate school, talking about how 
funds are going to be distributed, 
especially with research and fel- 
lowships," Stein says. 

"We're also working with the 
Graduate Student Minority Council 
to get more graduate funding and 
more financial aid for minorities," 
she says. 

In addition, the GSG is now tab- 
ulating the results of a 76-question 
survey on everything from the use 
of libraries to parking. 

Sfielly Stein 

"What I've seen so far is that 

graduate students who don't have 
offices feel there isn't a place to 
study on campus," Stein says. 

Another service offered by the 
GSG is their own graduate student 
legal aide, attorney Carla 
Rappaport. She is paid primarily 
through the graduate student fee 
and deals with everything from 
landlord problems and uncontested 
divorces to auto accidents and 

Graduate students may not 
know it. Stein says, but they are all 
members of the GSG and they are 
all encouraged to attend its bi- 
monthly meetings. 

"Anyone can come, anyone can 
say what they want, we don't have 
parliamentary procedure or any- 
thing like that — it's very, very 
informal," Stein says. 

Graduate students can also keep 
abreast of GSG activities by reading 
the monthly GSG newsletter, which 
can be found in various depart- 
mental graduate offices. A 
number of social activities, includ- 
ing this year's "Tlie Mother of Ail 
Parties" rounds out the list of 

Stein says the most ptipular GSG 

activity continues to be the weekly 
happy hours. Last year, they were 
held every Thursday evening at 
The Straw Boss in College Park. 

"But graduate students are 
responsible. You'd be surprised 
how many people come and say, 
'I've got to get back to the lab. See 
you later,'" Stein says. 

Originally from Columbus, 
Georgia, Stem received her B.A. in 
economics with a minor in speech 
communications from the Univer- 
sity of Georgia in Athens. From 
there, she earned an M.A. in com- 
munications studies from San Jose 
State University in California. Stein 
lives on the Fort Myer, Va., army 
base with her husband Mark 
Bynum, an officer in the Old Guard 
of the U.S. Army. She taught an 8 
a.m. section of Speech Com- 
munications 107 over the summer 
and continued her work with the 
GSG, but still found the time to 
work as a lifeguard at the army 
base and practice her hobby of 
long-distance swimming. A mem- 
ber of an open water masters team 
that meets on campus. Stein is in 
her second year of competing in 
the 4.4 mite Chesapeake Bay race. 

Though her term as GSG presi- 
dent has ended and though she is 
resuming her duties as a teaching 
assistant in the Department of 
Speech Communications, Stein 
plans to keep a very active hand in 
GSG activities. In her new role as 
the College Park representative for 
the National Association of Gradu- 
ate and Professional Students 
(NAG PS), she says she will push 
for affordable child care tor gradu- 
ate students. She would also like to 
see affordable health insurance pro- 
vided through NAGPS to graduate 
students who are not employed by 
the university. 

But as Stein puts it, the "legacy 
of Southern speech communica- 
tions GSG presidents" continues. 
Taking over the reigns at GSG in 
the fall is Delia Dennis, also 
working on her Ph.D. in speech 
communications and also from the 

Wendy Babbitt 

Letters and Sciences Providing Advice 

This fall, all new freshmen have 
been assigned to a specific Division 
of Letters and Sciences advisor, 
notes Betty Beckley, the program's 
director and assistant dean for 
undergraduate studies. Letters and 
Sciences is the new name of the 
Undergraduate Advising Center. 

Beckley says that 51 faculty 
members and 15 administrators are 
advising 604 freshmen. Members of 
the Letters and Sciences staff, three 
full-time professionals and ten 
graduate students, are advising 
another 429 freshmen, as well as 
207 sophomores who have J^een 

identified as being "at risk." An 
additional 2,600 students are 
assigned to the division but do not 
have regularly assigned advisors. 

"It is because of the active 
involvement of the faculty who 
have volunteered as advisors that 
we have been able to extend our 
services," Beckley says. 

In addition to their student case- 
loads, assistant directors Wendy 
Whittcmore and Ulysses Conner 
have taken on added responsibilies. 
Whittemore is expanding training 
and development activities, includ- 
ing the Seminar Program that was 

begun last year, and editing News- 
Flash, the advisor publication. 
Conner continues as the pre-law 
advisor and in addition is coordin- 
ating the freshman year program. 

Tom Steen has moved from 
walk-in coordinator to transfer stu- 
dent coordinator and Stella

Great Music and Great Literature is tlie Secret 
of Maryland Opera Studio's New Season 

Let's face it. Some opera plots 
are obscure, some creak with en- 
crusted symbolism and some are 
just plain silly. 

But not the three operas selected 
by the Maryland Opera for perfor- 
mance this month. In all three, 
strong and beautiful music is 
backed by strong and dramatic 

In La Tragcdie de Carmen, Bizet's 
music is set to the Peter Brook ver- 
sion of Prosper Mcrimce's novella. 
With music by Hugo Wcisgall, The 
Stronger is taken from a powerful 
little play by August Strindberg. 
And Ralph Vaughan-Willianis 
wrote the haunting musical setting 
for John Mil ling ton Synge's poetic 
drama. Riders to the Sea. 

First presented in Paris in 1981, 
Im Tragedie de Carmen is a version 
of the Carmen story that seeks to 
return the dramatic center of the 
opera closer to the harshness of the 
original Merimee work. It will be 
presented by the Opera Studio in 
an 80-minute version that elimin- 
ates the larger stage effects and 
choruses, but keeps intact all the 
familiar arias. 

Adjunct music faculty member 
Rhoda Levinc returns from recent 
directing work at New York City 
Opera — where her version of Zim- 
merman's Die Soldaten is currently 
causing quite a stir — to direct La 
Tragedie, and Robert McCoy, musi- 
cal director of the Maryland Opera 
Studio, will conduct the perform- 

The cast is mostly made up of 
students completing master's de- 
grees in voice at the university. 
Marie Michalopoulos- Warren is 
Carmen, Katie Katinas is Michael a 
and Phillip Collistcr is Escamillo, 
Don Jose will be sung by Scott 
David Miller, a tenor from 

Walkersville, Maryland. The Uni- 
versity of Maryland Symphony Or- 
chestra will perform for la Tragedie 
as well as for the opera double bill 
later in the month. 

Conductor McCoy is pleased 
that La Tragedie will be performed 
in French. "While more work is in- 
volved, it gives our students a 
chance to perform in the original 
language," he says. Huent in 
French himself, McCoy first en- 
countered the original Peter Brook 
production when he was living in 
Paris. "I really believe in the piece. 
Brook has heightened the drama 
and Marius Constant's re-orchestra- 
tion builds an inescapable momen- 
tum towards the tragedy," he adds. 

College Park audiences can see 
Ui Tragedie de Carmen on Nov. 8, 12, 
14 and 16 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 10 at 
3 p.m. in the intimate Pugliese 
Theatre in the Tawes Fine Arts 
Building. Tickets are $15 ($9 for 
students and senior citizens). For 
information, call 405-5548. 

The double bill of The Stronger 
and Riders to the Sea wil I be per- 
formed Nov. 20 and 22 at 8 p.m. 
and Nov, 24 at 3 p.m. in Tawes Re- 
cital Hall. The two operas will be 
directed by acting music chair Leon 
Major and conducted by music 
faculty member William Hudson. 

Both operas in the double bill 
arc based on powerful theater 
pieces. The Stronger is an intense, 
two-character, one-act drama be- 
tween two women who are rivals 
for one man, Weisgall's music, 
composed in the 19505, is appropri- 
ately angular, dramatic — and witty, 
according to director Major. 

Riders to the Sea, taking place in 
an Irish fishing village, has the 
stark inevitability of classical Greek 
tragedy. Major says Vaughan-Wil- 
liams used Synge's drama nearly

word for word, providing it with a 
setting that evolves into a richly 
textured, sustained tone poem. 
Tickets for the double bill are $15 
($9 for students and senior 
citizens). Call 405-5548 for informa- 

As musical director for the 
Maryland Opera Studio, McCoy is 
pleased with the diverse kinds of 
experience the double bill and La 
Tragedie de Carmen are providing 
College Park's student singers, 
"Our program has to be compre- 
hensive because there are so many 
demands on performers these 
days," he says. "I believe in the pro- 
gram. It's giving our students the 
type of training needed by profes- 
sional singers for the 21st century." 

College Park opera lovers bene- 
fit too. They should plan to settle 
in for some intense and beautiful 
performances this November, per- 
formances of operas with great mu- 
sic — -and great plots.

First Map of Maryland Housed in 
Hornbake Library 

Peter Curtis examines 1794 map of Maryland 

A unique and extremely scarce 
copy of the first detailed map of 
the state of Maryland, compiled in 
1794 by Dennis Griffith, can today 
be found in the Maryland Room of 
the university's Hornbake Library. 

What makes the black and 
while, 25" x 50" map so special is 

its tremendous detail, according to 
Peter Curtis, Curator of Mary- 
landia. In addition to each Mary- 
land county and Baltimore city, the 
map includes 180 mills, 92 taverns, 
1 1 iron forges, nine iron furnaces, a 
number of houses of worship, and 
roads that were in existence at the 

The significance of this unusual 
map for today's researcher, Curtis 
says, is that by detailing all of the 
roads, it provides an insight into 
the transportation system then and 
how goods came to market. Iron- 
ically, Griffith's map, which should 
have appealed to merchants and 
travelers at the time, sold poorly 
after its publication. 

According to Edward C. 
Papenfuse and Joseph M. Coale, 
authors of "The Hammond- 
Harwood House Atlas of Historical 
Maps of Maryland," lack of in the 
map stemmed from its being "too 
large to interest people who were 
not yet accustomed to hanging 

maps on walls. Commodious par- 
lors with abundant wall space 
would not be commonplace for 
another several decades." 

Griffith's map is one of two 
exceptions to Papenfuse's and 
Coale' s belief that "on balance, the 
American and English maps and 
geographical accounts published in 
the first quarter century of the new 
nation were not as good as they 
might have been," The other excep- 
tion is a long and carefully 
researched chapter on Maryland by 
Christoph Ebeling, published in 
Hamburg, Germany, in 1799. 

In addition to the copy now in 
the Maryland Room, Curtis 
believes there are other Griffith 
maps in the State Law Library in ■ 
Annapolis and with the Maryland 
Historical Society, A few may also 
be in private hands, he says.

Study Looks at 
Syphilis Study 

Implications of Tuskegee 
on AIDS Education 

Sandra Grouse Ouinn and Stephen B. Thomas 

AIDS education programs for 
Blacks in America may be ham- 
pered by the legacy of the 
Tuskegee Syphilis Study and a his- 
tory of racism, according to a 
recently published paper by the 
Minority Health Research Labora- 
tory in the Department of Health 

According to Stephen B. 
Thomas, director of the Minority 
Health Research Laboratory and 
one of the researchers who 
authored the paper, many black 
Americans mistrust the public 
health system and health education 
efforts because of a history of 
racism against them. 

This mistrust is exacerbated by 
knowledge of the Tuskegee 

Syphihs Study in which 399 Ala- 
bama black men with syphilis were 
used as study subjects between 
1932 and 1972. During what 
became the longest non-therapeutic 
study of human beings in medical 
history, the men and their disease 
were studied but left untreated, 
even after penicillin became the 
standard treatment in 1954. As men 
died during the course of the 
study, autopsies were performed to 
determine the effects of untreated 

"Many black people have a fear 
of being exploited tlirough research 
by the government and public 
health professionals," Thomas says. 
"People see the Tuskegee case as 
grounds for being distrustful of 
government AIDS education 

According to Thomas, who co- 
authored tlie paper with research 
assistant Sandra Grouse Quinn, 
some studies indicate that a sub- 
stantial number of black Americans 
believe AIE>S is a man-made dis- 
ease created as a form of genocide, 

"The resulting distrust of AIDS 
education efforts is legitimate and 
reflected in the Tuskegee study," 
says Quinn. "There is a precedent 
that suggests such things do, in 
fact, happen." 

Quinn says AIDS intervention 
steps such as the possible HIV 
(human immunodeficiency virus) 
testing of pregnant women may be 
interpreted by many blacks as 
repressive governmental actions. 

According to Thomas, this mis- 
trust can block the efforts of AIDS 
educators to make communities 
aware of the dangers of AIDS and 
the ways to prevent its spread. It 
can also cause people to delay 
seeking the medical care they may 
need, fccausc of their basic 


"Because education is the best 
defense against the spread of AIDS, 
we must begin to deal with these 
fears and barriers if we are to con- 
vince people that AIDS education 
and treatment efforts are a sincere 
attempt to stop the spread of the 
disease," Thomas says. 

According to Thomas and 
Quinn, the Tuskegee Syphilis Study 
became national news in 1972 
when a Washington Star rcpt>rter 
broke the story. Public awareness 
and outrage led to strict federal 
regulations regarding the use of 
human subjects in research. "But 
since then, the study has been vir- 
tually undiscussed for years," 
Quinn says. 

"The ethical issues involved in 
the Tuskegee study are not tK?ing 
talked about in the public health 
literature or in medical schools or 
even among most health educators. 
It's time to open up the dialogue," 
Thomas adds. 

"This dialogue can contribute to 
a t>etter understanding of how to 
develop and implement HIV edu- 
cation programs that are scientific- 
ally sound, culturally sensitive, and 
ethically acceptable." 

Thomas and Quinn say health 
educators will need to address the 
problems associated with the black 
population's perceptions of public 
health if they are to gain their con- 

"As health educators we need to 
acknowledge the legacy of the 
Tuskegee study and assure that 
those men who were used as sub- 
jects in the study did not die in 
vain," Thomas says. 

The Thomas and Quinn study 
appears in this month's issue of the 
American lournal of Public Health.

Rapid Diagnosis Aids Fish Industry 

Aquacullurists agrc^ that rapid 
disease diagnosis and treatment is 
one of the critical needs for the 
development of the aquaculture 
industry. The rapid outbreak of a 
viral infection in a hatchery or 
pond can jeopardize the financial 
success of an aquacultural opera- 

Rotaviruses, a viral group com- 
mon in fish, can lead to high fish 
mortality. They strike familiar 
Chesapeake Bay inhabitants, such 
as striped bass and the American 
oyster, as well as channel catfish, 
chum salmon and other species. 

Effective vaccines are not avail- 
able to prevent fish rotavirus out- 
breaks, says Siba Samal, assistant 
professor of molecular virology at 
the Virginia-Maryland Regional 
College of Veterinary Medicine. 
Currently, the diagnosis of viral 
infections in fish involves isolating 
the virus and then identifying it 
using serology, the analysis of 
blood serum components. But some 
fish viruses grow very slowly, 
taking up to two weeks to identify 

them. Combined with the occa- 
sional failure of virus isolation, this 
makes the technique neither rapid 
nor reliable. 

The best way to control viral 
outbreaks is to prevent their intro- 
duction into fish cultures, says 
Samal. This involves screening 
brood stock for the virus so that 
other facilities are not contaminated 
by the shipment of eggs or offspr- 
ing. Samal, along with Frank 
Hetrick, a professor of virology in 
the Department of Microbiology, is 
designing a rapid rotavirus detec- 
tion metfiod using ribonucleic acid 
(RNA), the virus' genetic material. 

The hybridization of nucleic 
acids has been used to identify 
many human and animal viruses, 
says Samal. But it has never tieen 
developed for the identification of 
fish viral diseases. Compared to 
current serological methods, 
nucleic acid hybridization tests are 
rapidly processed (within 24 hours) 
and highly specific and sensitive. 

To develop this test, the resear- 
chers will first extract RNA seg- 

ments (genes) from SB, a strain of 
rotavirus that Hetrick isolated from 
striped bass. These segments will 
be used to create t>oth radioactive 
and nonradioactive RNA and 
deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) 
probes. These probes will identity 
cells that are infected with the SB 

To ensure the test's specificity, 
RNA from cells other than the SB 
strain also will be examined. These 
experiments will indicate how 
quickly the test can identify the 
rotavirus and the minimum num- 
ber of infected cells that are re- 
quired for detection. 

In related work, the researchers 
have also discovered a new virus 
genus in the family Rcoviridae , 
They propose naming the new 
genus, which was discovered in 
striped bass, Aqimrota. The discov- 
ery was published in the journal of
