OUTLOOK 



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



NOVEMBER 22. 1993 
VOLUME 8, NUMBER 12 



The Children's Place 

Center for Young Children Aims to Become Model Facility 




The Center for Young Children officially opened in September 1993 and already has 100 children 
of UMCP faculty, staff and students enrolled. Activities at the center range from reading books 
and making art to just plain having fun. 



Play's the thing — and laughter 
and learning — on Valley Drive. 
Tucked away behind Denton Com- 
munity, you'll find 100 of College 
Park's youngest and most enthusiastic 
students. They're the three-, four- and 
five-year-olds who fill the classrooms 
at the Center for Young Children. 

Officially opened for business in 
September, the center already has a 
waiting list. When completed this 
spring, it will house 120 children in 
three classrooms for three- year-olds, 
two classrooms for four-year-olds, 
and one kindergarten class. 

The modern, airy facility features a 
great room off of which are class- 
rooms filled with the children's color- 
ful art and happy noises. In one 
room, little ones gather 'round while 



a teacher reads from a favorite book. 
In another, art is the agenda. And 
unobtrusively watching some of the 
classes are UMCP students who view 
the toddlers from one of three spe- 
cially-designed observation rooms. 

But this center is about more than 
day care. It's about joining together 
the best the university has to offer in 
a working relationship that benefits 
both these pint-sized freshmen and 
the campus. 

A child care facility is nothing new 
to the College Park campus. In 1965, 
the College of Education created and 
housed what is considered a more 
traditional nursery school consisting 
of a half-day program restricted to 
children ages four and five. But as the 
center's needs changed it was moved 



to Cambridge Hall. 

When the Department of Human 
Development was asked to take over 
the facility two years ago, renova- 
tions would have cost $250,000, says 
Robert Hardy, chairman of the 
department. "We figured if we were 
going to spend that much to repair 
Cambridge Hall, why not use the 
money to build a new center 
instead." 

The new center is a combination 
child development lab and child care 
facility, savs Fran Favretto, director of 
the Center for Young Children, 
Favretto, who obtained both her mas- 
ter's degree and Ph.D. from College 
Park, intends to make the center part 
of the whole university, she says. 

Already, the Horticulture Depart- 
ment has been brought in to develop 
a landscape plan for the center. When 
it comes time to plant, the children 
will lend their green thumbs to the 
job. Hearing and speech communica- 
tions students conduct research at the 
center and music education students 
will share their talents with the chil- 

cotttinued ott pn^c3

Five of the nation's leading archi- 
tectural firms are finalists in the 
worldwide design competition to 
select an architect for the $80 million 
Maryland Center for Performing Arts. 

The Maryland Department of Gen- 
era) Services (DCS) and the Universi- 
ty of Maryland at College Park 
announced Cesar Pel I i and Associates 
of New Haven, Conn., with RTKL 
Associates, Inc. of Baltimore (joint

Yudell, Santa Monica, Calif.; Barton 
Mvers Associates of Los Angeles; and 
Antoine Predock Architect of Albu- 
querque, N.M., have been invited to 
participate in the design competition 



for the facility to be built on the Col- 
lege Park campus. 

"The selection process to choose 
the architect for the center has given 
us a stellar group of finalists with 
international reputations for innova- 
tion and imagination," says President 
William E. Kirwan. 

Tire finalists were selected from a 
group of ten that were announced on 
Nov. 2, 1993. The ten were requested 
to complete their design teams and 
submit the qualifications for their 
consultants in areas such as theater 
design, structural, acoustics, lighting 
andHVACbyNov.8.

Team Maryland Wins Highest Award among 
Nation's Division I Institutions 




Team Maryland members met recently with students from Calverton Elementary School. 



Each semester, 25 scholar-athletes 
add a new team to their list of accom- 
plishments — Team Maryland. And 
now, the two-year old community 
service and leadership development 
program for scholar-athletes has been 
recognized as the best outreach pro- 
gram among 163 Division 1 NCAA 
institutions. Matt Haas, director of 
Team Maryland, was on hand in 
Boston on Friday, Nov. 12, to receive 
the Outreach and Community Service 
Program of the Year Award from the 
Rev. Jesse Jackson at the National 
Consortium for Academics and 
Sports (an NCAA affiliate) annual 
awards banquet. 

The award recognizes programs 
that send student athletes into the 
community to use their role model 
status to educate the public on issues 
such as alcohol and drug abuse, the 
importance of education, handgun 
control, teenage pregnancy and self- 
esteem. 

Since receiving the award, Haas 
has had calls from universities eager 
to learn how they can replicate the 
program. He is not surprised because 
Haas believes Team Maryland is a 
natural way to bridge academics and 



sports in a meaningful way. 

Team Maryland is part of a new 
program for scholar-athletes devel- 
oped by Georgia Sorenson, director 
of the Center for Political Leadership 
and Participation, and Andy Geiger, 
athletic director. The program pro- 
motes leadership development and 
awareness of community responsibil- 
ities. Sorenson says, "Research shows 
that young people will only hear a 
message from someone who is no 
more than eight years older than 
themselves," 

Each semester 25 junior and senior 
students involved in the university's 
varsity athletic program take their 
message to area schools. Haas says 
that so far this semester, they have 
spoken to 5,800 students. "We are 
going to six schools this week alone," 
says Haas. While the group likes to 
reach the vulnerable middle school 
students, they reach out to elemen- 
tary and high school students as 
well — tailoring their messages to the 
age of the audience. 

The message of Team Maryland is 
'You Can Make It Happen' and team 
members talk about personal experi- 
ences while emphasizing the impor- 



Open Enrollment to be Held from Nov. 22-Dec. 8 



The State of Maryland Department 
of Personnel announces that the 
health insurance open enrollment 
period will be held from Monday, 
Nov. 22 through Wednesday, Dec. 8. 
This open enrollment is voluntary. 
Any changes made during this peri- 
od will become effective Jan. 1, 1994. 

An employee who does not submit 
a 1994 enrollment form by Dec. 8 will 
be enrolled in the same programs 
which were in effect in 1993. Employ- 
ees wishing to continue to set aside a 
portion of their salary into a Health 
Care or Dependent Care Spending 
Account for next year must complete 
an enrollment form during this open 
enrollment period. 

The State Department of Personnel 
is sending information, along with 



the 1994 Health Insurance Enrollment 
Form, to every employee at their 
home address. 

UMCP's Personnel Services 
Department is sending a letter to 
everyone on campus regarding the 
open enrollment, including the 1994 
bi-weekly health insurance premiums 
for employees. To assist employees in 
understanding the programs avail- 
able, the department has invited rep- 
resentatives from the health 
organizations to be available at a 
Fiealth Line Informational Fair on 
Monday, Nov. 29, from 1 1 a.m. to 3 
p.m., in the Grand Ballroom Lounge, 
Stamp Student Union. 

For additional information about 
open enrollment, please call the bene- 
fits office at 405-5654. 



tance of self-esteem, obtaining an 
education, setting goals, working 
hard to attain them, and avoiding 
alcohol and drugs. "We bring an 
arsenal of statistics with us," says 
Haas, 

The program has proved so popu- 
lar among campus athletes that Haas 
has to accept students into the pro- 
gram on a first-come basis. The stu- 
dents are required to take a course in 
leadership development and to main- 
tain a 2,7 average. He emphasizes 
t h a t pa rt i c i pa n ts a re d ra w n f ro m t he 
full range of varsity sports. He notes, 
too, that for the audience they are try- 
ing to reach it doesn't matter if a foot- 
ball starora member of the women's 
swim team, the important thing is 
that take the time to visit with the 
students and listen to them. 

While Team Maryland gives a 
great deal to young people through- 
out the state, they get much in return. 
"The real purpose of the program is 
leadership education for the mem- 
bers of Team Maryland. That's why 
we're doing it. It's part of the curricu- 
lum, part of their experience here and 
it needs to be thought of that way," 
says Geiger.

Conference Seeks to Break Down Racial Barriers in the Work Place 



Last year, while Los Angeles 
burned in the aftermath of the Rod- 
ney King verdict, Michael Nacht took 
note. The dean of the School of Public 
Affairs put together a conference on 
race relations in America that caught 
the attention of more than 250 faculty 
and students from across the campus. 

On Friday, Dec. 3, a second confer- 
ence, "Breaking Down Racial Barriers 
in the Work Place: Successful Models 
for Diversity," wrestles with all man- 
ner of provocative questions and 
begins to actually answer them. The 
conference, to be held from 8 a.m. to 
1 p.m., in theTyser Auditorium, Van 
Munching Hall, is presented by the 
School of Public Affairs along with 
the Afro American Studies Program, 
College of Business and Manage- 
ment, and the Campus-Wide Steering 



Committee for Diversity Initiative 
1993-94. 

The conference is divided equally 
between two panels (including J. 
Alphonso Brown, an appointee to the 
Glass Ceiling Commission of the U.S. 
Department of Labor; Barbara 
Reynolds, a member of the editorial 
board of USA Today, Lawrence Otis 
G ra h a m , a u th or o f The Bes t Co n i \ a n i '£$ 
for Minorities; and Dr. Peter Kwong, 
director of Asian-American Studies at 
Hunter College) and two question- 
and -answer periods. 

"The objective," says Lafayette 
Barnes, director of external relations 
at the School of Public Affairs, "is 
that at the end of the conference, the 
audience will walk awav with some 
solutions — with a feeling that there 
are some policies and programs that 



are working." 

And, with a fervor that, whatever 
their organization, whatever their 
work environment, they will find a 
way to apply it. 

Currently, four lectures, each one 
dealing with a subject as fresh and 
fiercely debated as today's headlines, 
are being looked at: race relations and 
Native Americans; relations between 
Asian-Americans and African-Ameri- 
cans; relations between Arab-Ameri- 
cans and Jewish-Americans; and race 
relations at UMCP. 

For more information about the 
Dec. 3 conference, please contact the 
School of Public Affairs at 405-6330.

Children's Place

dren. 

Even while still on the drawing 
board, the university enlisted its 
Department of Engineering and 
Architectural Services to develop 
schematics for the potential builder. 
Catherine Jones, design manager on 
the project, says her office created a 
skeletal set of specifications. The con- 
tract was awarded to a design-build 
team. 

As the mother of two children 
who were enrolled in the university's 
child care facility, Jones had a vested 
interest in seeing the new center 
built. But she also provided a special 
perspective on the project. "As the 
center was being built, we invited the 
children to tour the new site and let 
them see what was happening," says 
Jones. She also visited the students to 
talk to them about what an architect 
does. 

And when the concrete lor the 
new playground was poured, the 
children all were invited to put their 
handprints in the wet cement. "Now 
the kids can see their handprints and 
feel they had a part in the new build- 
ing," says Jones. 

Designing a building for children, 
says Jones, was a nice departure from 
other buildings on campus that she's 
helped design, "This center has a 
peek-a-boo design that savs I'm a 
different building.'" Each room has 
its own front door with a covered 
pediment, savs Jones. And each class- 
room was painted a different color. 
Jazzy f 1 oo r d es i g n s i n so me room s 
and a sunrise designed into the front 
door gable are added touches that 
make the place special. 

To make the center accessible to 
faculty, staff and students with 
young children, savs Favretto, the 







The children personalized their playground by leaving their handprints in the cement. 




enrollment fees are on a sliding scale 
based on family income. And a lot- 
tery in the spring, equally weighted 
among faculty, staff and students, 
determines which students will be 
attending. 

Favretto notes that the center has a 
culturally-diverse mix of students. 
When the school first opened, she 
says, 1 1 of the 20 students enrolled in 
one three-year-old class did not 
speak English, 

Staff at the center consists of 
Favretto, an assistant director, Ann 
Daniel, and ten teachers. In each 
classroom, says Favretto, there is one 
master's and one bachelor's degree 
teacher. In addition student aides are 
trained to assist at the center. 

The developmental ly-appropri ate 
curriculum, says Hardy, makes the 
Center for Young Children a stand- 
out. "There's teaching there, but it's 
not forced on the children," he says. 
And there's an emphasis on the chil- 
dren's art. "It's more the children's 



building." 

Carol Seefeldt, a professor in the 
Department of I luman Development 
who was instrumental in bringing the 
center to being, envisioned a state-of- 
the-art complex. She savs her goal is 
to have the center serve as a world- 
wide model. 

"Italy has a program of child care 
centers that are stunningly beauti- 
ful," says Seefeldt. "People travel 
from all over the world to see these 
centers." But she envisions that Col- 
lege Park, rich with resources, should 
attract the attention of child care 
experts as well. 

"We have had really wonderful 
support from the university," says 
Hardy. And Catherine Jones echoes 
those sentiments. "The center is an 
important first step in addressing 
child care needs on campus," says 
Jones. "Now that it's finally here, I 
hope the campus will use it as a 
resource,"

Court Finds in Favor of University in Banneker Scholarship Case 



U.S. District Court Judge J. Freder- 
ick Motz today ruled that the race- 
based Banneker Scholarship program 
at the University of Maryland at Col- 
lege Park should be allowed to con- 
tinue in that the program is an 
appropriate response to past discrim- 
ination at the university. 

In his opinion on the case of Pod- 
Ivri'sky vs. Kirwan, Motz noted that: 
"The question posed in this case is 
whether a public university, racially 
segregated by law for almost a centu- 
ry and actively resistant to integra- 
tion for at least 20 years thereafter, 
may — after confronting the injustice 
of its past — voluntarily seek to reme- 
dy the resulting problems of its pre- 
sent, by spending one percent of its 
financial aid budget to provide schol- 
arships to approximately 30 high- 
achieving African- American students 
each year." Based on Motz's finding, 
the answer is an unequivocal "yes." 

"I am immensely pleased that the 
District Court has ruled in favor of 
the university," President William E. 
Kirwan says. "The finding frees us to 
continue one of our most effective 
tools in addressing the lingering 
effects of past injustices by the insti- 
tution." 

Kirwan notes that, among the pre- 
dominant ethnic and racial groups in 
Maryland, only blacks remain under- 
represented at College Park when 
compared to the proportion they rep- 
resent in the general population. 

Banneker Scholarships are four- 
year awards given to academically- 
talented African-American freshmen. 
Approximately 25 new awards are 
made each year. The scholarships 
provide full financial support for all 
four years, covering tuition, room, 



board, fees and book expenses. 

In his 60-page opinion. Mot/ 
observed that in the past 15 years 
"the university has earnestly taken 
steps to remedy its history of segre- 
gation. Its efforts have born fruit." 

Still, Motz noted, there are four 
effects of the university's past dis- 
crimination that persist to the present 
within the African- American commu- 



"The finding frees us to 
continue one of our most 

effective tools in 
addressing the lingering 
effects of past injustices 

by the institution, " 
— President William E. Kirtvun 



nity and with African Americans 
attending the university: a poor repu- 
tation of the university, especially 
among parents and high school coun- 
selors; under-representation in the 
student population; low retention 
and graduation rates; and percep- 
tions of a hostile campus climate. 

"It is worthy of note," the judge 
said in a footnote to the opinion, 
"that the university is (to put it mild- 
ly) in a somewhat unusual situation. 
It is not often that a litigant is 
required to engage in extended self- 
criticism in order to justify its pursuit 
of a goal that it deems worthy. 



"All other matters aside," he con- 
tinued, "UMCP administrators are to 
be commended for the moral courage 
that they have demonstrated in 
undertaking this self-examination 
with an admirable degree of candor." 

The ruling comes after three years 
of litigation that began with the filing 
of a suit against the university in Dis- 
trict Court by Daniel Podberesky 
challenging the university's Banneker 
Scholarship program on the basis that 
the scholarships were unfairly not 
available to him because he is not 
African American. 

The District Court had originally 
ruled that the Banneker Scholarships 
did not violate the law, but on appeal 
by Podberesky, the U.S. Court of 
A p p ea 1 s re v e rsed the I u w er cou rt 
decision, ruling that the District 
Court erred when it "failed to make a 
specific finding" of "some present 
effect of past discrimination," and 
remanded the case to District Court 
for a determination on the past dis- 
crimination issue. 

The university undertook an 
intensive self-studv and issued a 
report on its findings last April. The 
report acknowledged that, because of 
discriminatory practices in Maryland 
schools until the mid-1950s, negative 
perceptions linger with some minori- 
ty populations. These perceptions, 
the internal study found, form a valid 
basis for such proactive efforts as the 
Banneker Scholarship program. 

Motz's opinion establishes that 
UMCP has convincingly established 
to the court's satisfaction that such a 
"present effect of past discrimina- 
tion" does exist. 



Prince George's County Teachers Use Interactive Television to Infuse 
Multi-Cultural Literature into Their Curriculum 



Interactive television is giving 
more than 100 Prince George's Coun- 
ty middle and secondary school 
English teachers a much-needed 
opportunity to diversify their curricu- 
lum. The Interactive Television Pro- 
gram in Prince George's County is 
being used by UMCP to deliver its 
African- American Literature Lecture 
Series. 

The six-part series originates from 
Bonnie F. Johns Educational Media 
Center, where as many as 20 teachers 
are in attendance. Prom there, it is 
broadcast to up to 90 teachers located 
in six high schools, including Fair- 
mont, Forestville, Friendly, Largo, 
Potomac and Surra ttsvi lie. 

"The ability to reach more teachers 
by making programs more conve- 
nient for them is extremely impor- 



tant," says Rojulene (Morris, language 
arts supervisor for Prince George's 
Countv schools. 

The series, titled, "Private 
Lives/ Public Voices: Positioning the 
African- American Woman's Voice 
Within American Literacy and Cul- 
tural Traditions," began Oct. 13 and 
runs through April 13, 1994. 

"There is little question that the 
1990s will be the decade in which the 
fact of ethnic diversity in our schools 
and country at large is increasingly 
recognized and dealt with," says 
Maynard Mack, Jr., co-director of 
UMCP's Center Alliance for Sec- 
ondary School Teachers and Texts 
(CAST), which developed the pro- 
gram in direct response to the needs 
of Maryland's secondary school 
teachers. "Teachers must play a major 



role in determining how curricula are 
diversified and must be given oppor- 
tunities to study new material in 
depth so that the new texts excite 
them as much ,-is the traditional 
texts." 

The African- American Literature 
Lecture Series was presented previ- 
ously in Howard and Baltimore coun- 
ties, and received rave reviews. "You 
made one white male long to read, 
learn and appreciate much more in 
this area," said one teacher. 

IntriviL live telo\ jsion also is being 
used by CAST in Baltimore, where 
teachers are participating in a "Multi- 
cultural Poetry by Women" series via 
public access television station 
Channel 36.

Policy on Faculty Termination Is Key Issue 
of November Senate Meeting 



On Thursday, Nov. 11, the College 
Park Senate considered several important 
Hems of business. After briefly reviewing 
many of these, I will use the remaining 
space to elaborate on the key issue facing 
the Senate and the faculty at College 
Park: the policy tm terminating faculty 
appointments during a financial 
emergency. 

Academic Advising: The Student 
Caucus offered a resolution to 
improve academic advising with spe- 
cific features such as mandatory first- 
year advising and a junior-year audit. 
Although the Educations] Affairs 
Committee is now reviewing the 
Provost's report on advising for 1992- 
1993, progress on this important issue 
lias been slow. An unfortunately- 
timed quorum call cut short debate 
just as the Senate prepared to vote to 
send the resolution to committee; 
however, the Executive Committee 
will next week refer the Student Cau- 
cus resolution for joint review by the 
Educational Affairs and Student 
Affairs committees. 

Double Degrees and Double 
Majors: This long-standing item of 
business was approved by the Senate. 
The amended policy removes 
ambiguous language about "signifi- 
cant overlap" in double major pro- 
grams which has resulted in 
conflicting interpretations across 
campus. Students earning double 
majors will now have to complete the 
requirements of each major as well as 
receive preliminary and final 
approval of their program from both 
departments. Students earning dou- 
ble degrees must complete a total of 
150 credits with at least 18 credits 
unique to the second degree. 

Graduate Certificate in Environ- 
mental Policy: The Senate approved 
a proposal for a School of Public 



Affairs graduate certificate program 
in environmental policy. This propos- 
al is the first of several professional 
development programs that the Sen- 
ate will consider this year as College 
Park becomes more active in offering 
continuing education programs to the 
business and scientific communities. 
These new programs represent a sig- 
nificant departure from our typical 
way of doing business on campus. 
They raise crucial questions: Who 
will teach in such programs? Who 
will design and oversee them? How 
will academic standards be main- 
tained? Plow much will students pay 
for such programs? Who will benefit 
if such programs turn a profit? These 
and other questions deserve careful 
consideration; Provost Fallon has 
appointed a taskforce which will 
attempt to develop the principles that 
will guide College Park's new efforts 
in continuing education. 

Termination of Faculty Appoint- 
ments: The Senate unanimously 
endorsed the System-wide Resolution 
on Termination of Faculty Appoint- 
ments During a Financial Emergency 
approved at an Oct. 23 meeting of 
Senate Chairs from 1 1 of the UMS 
institutions. That resolution stated

state representatives, will evaluate 
the finalists' submissions and make a

board, comprised of DCS profession-

which will review the ranking and 
determine if negotiations should

by Feb. 11,1994. 

The international design competi- 
tion drew responses from 199 firms

proposals, from which ten were 



selected and further narrowed to five. 

The nearly 295,000 square-foot 
Performing Arts Center will be one of 
the largest and most complex projects 
in the history of UMCP. Its primary 
use will be in teaching of the per- 
forming arts: music, theater, opera 
and dance. The center also will offer 
performances bv local artists and per- 
forming arts groups such as the 
Prince George's Philharmonic and 
the Maryland Opera Society. The 
building will house performance 
facilities, practice and rehearsal 
spaces, classrooms, offices and a per- 
forming arts library. 

Construction will begin in spring 
19% with the center expected to be 
ready for use by 1999. 



may develop its own policies and 
procedures as long as no provisions ■ 
conflict with the system-mandated 
common language. 

The College Park Senate approved 
our institutional policy in October 
1992, and then again in April 1993 
when system administration required 
that each institution include specified 
"common language" in its policy. 
President Kirwan forwarded that 
document for review by the system 
and the Attorney General's Office. 
Only last month did we receive a 
response. Our policy had been edited 
and red lined in unacceptable ways. 
Most crucial, the key passage — defin- 
ing financial emergency as "an 
extraordinary fiscal crisis that threat- 
ens the essential functions of this 
institution as a whole and cannot be 
alleviated bv less drastic means than 
the premature termination of tenured 
or tenure- track faculty appoint- 
ments"— had been deleted. In a meet- 
ing on Oct. 13, representatives from 
the provost and president's office and 
the Senate met with system officials 
to insist that such a definition remain 
in the policy. We have not heard any- 
thing further from the system since. 

Other system institutions have 
fared less well. UMAB, Coppin State 
and the University of Baltimore all 
have had their "retrenchment" poli- 
cies approved bv the Chancellor — 
either without adequate faculty 
consultation or despite vehement fac- 
ulty objection. This series of events, 
threatening the rights of faculty 
throughout the system, prompted the 
Senate Chairs to adopt the system- 
wide resolution endorsed by the Col- 
lege Park Senate on Nov. 11. The 
Senate has taken a strong stand on 
this vital issue and will keep the Col- 
lege Park community informed.

Learning from Lincoln 

Students Give 20th Century Twist to Famous Speech 



"The world will little note, nor 
long remember what we say here, hut 
it can never forget what they did 
here." Those words were spoken by 
President Abraham Lincoln on Nov. 
19, 1863 when he dedicated a national 
cemetery at Gettysburg, site of the 
only battle waged on Northern soil 
during the Civil War. 

An account of the day indicates 
that Lincoln glanced at a slip of paper 
and in a little less than three minutes 
finished what has become one of the 
most famous speeches in the English 
language: The Gettysburg Address. 
At the time, however, he considered 
it a failure. Furthermore, it received 
little public attention. Only a few rec- 
ognized it as one of the finest speech- 
es ever crafted. 

With Lincoln's eloquent brevity in 
mind, the Honors Program and the 
Office of Campus Programs spon- 
sored an essay contest open to all 
UMCP undergraduate students. The 



task: to rewrite Lincoln's Gettysburg 
Address. Entries had to be exactly 
272 words — the same number Lin- 
coln used in his moving speech. 
Judges were asked to look for creativ- 
ity and uniqueness of ideas, pro- 
foundness/significance of message 
and quality of writing. 

As soon as Teresa Shirlen heard 
about the essay contest in a speech 
class she knew that she would enter. 
But getting the right words down on 
paper was a bit more difficult. Then 
one day, Martin Luther King's inspi- 
rational "1 Have a Dream" speech 
was the topic in class. That did it. "1 
came home and wrote the speech in 
an hour. I was really inspired by 
what he said," says Shirlen. So much 
so that she incorporated a reference 
to King in her essay, which captured 
first place. 

Speech -writing comes naturally to 
this senior from Wheaton. She is 
majoring in Secondary Education 



f77te «_. imejHca/i *. €t/d^&f^ 

"Tenser j re and seventeen years ago, a grand nation was conceived and 
dedicated to the proposition that alt are created equal. 

Sixscore and ten years ago, a great American addressed this nation on tfje 
division that threatened its existence. 

Wirty years ago, another great American stood in the "symbolic shadow" 
of the first and again addressed the nation on this division. 

Today I sadly bring you similar words. 

The first addressed a division by war. The second, a division created by 
law. Today, I speak on a division created by attitude. 

All are equally dangerous. All leave our country broken and bleeding. 

tint, while war turned into peace and laws were amended, I do not see the 

reversal of the disunity that thrives on prejudice in this rial ton. 

Tl.w cannons had to stop, someone had to win; the laws had to change, 

they were morally wrong; but who will step forward to change 

the personal ignorance that causes confusion in a new generation — 

a generation that is told to respect everyone, but when searching 

for role models demonstrating this command, can find so Jew? 

When can we join diversity to unity? When can we begin to learn 

from each other about that which makes us different? 

When can we mark a day in history as the day we began to appreciate 

our fellow citizens and live without preconceived notions and wrongful fears? 

This change can only be born in each person's heart. No gun can force it, 

no law can change it, but each person must examine themselves and choose to 

replace the hatred and division with fairness and love for all people. "

Speech and English. Folk) wing grad- 
uation in December 1994, she is con- 
sidering three choices at the moment: 
going directly into high school teach- 
ing, launching into a career teaching 
public speaking skills to business 
people or heading for graduate 
school for speech communications or 
student affairs. 

Shirlen stays in the public eve out- 
side pf class, too. She is a tour guide 
with the Maryland Images program 
which shows campus life to prospec- 
tive students. She also works at the 
Visitor Center two davs each week 
and is co- president of the Under- 
graduate Teachers Education Associ- 
ation. 

The second place winner, Sean 
Thomas Smith, learned of the contest 
from Professor Andrew Wolvin's 
speech- writing class. Smith says he 
mulled over the essay for about a 
month aiui then, the night before the 
contest deadline, put it to paper. 
"The hardest part was having il 
exactlv 272 words," says Smith, 1 le 
attributes his experience as an editor 
of his high school newspaper for 
helping him with his cupv-fitting 
abilities. 

Of his reworked address, Smith 
says: "I wanted to draw some paral- 
lel to today. 1 try to keep up with 
social issues for there are very impor- 
tant matters which are not being 
addressed." 

As for Smith's future, he thinks 
that speech writing may be more 
than a fleeting fancy, Since taking 
Wolvin's class, he has become inter- 
ested in pursuing it as a career. But 
for the moment, graduation next 
month is his main concern. 

Third place winner is Joseph Pel- 
letier, a junior student from Laurel 
who is majoring in Government and 
Politics. Asked why he entered, Pel- 
letier recalls that he saw an 
announcement in the Dimnontllwck 
and became interested. "1 enjov writ- 
ing and it sounded like fun," he says. 
Pelletier took a world view in his 
reworked a d d res s, ci t i n g America's 
role as protector to other nations. In 
other honors, on Nov. 19, Pelletier 
was inducted into the Golden Kev 
Honor Society. 

Faculty judges included Mavnard 
Mack in Undergraduate Studies, 
Robert Dorfman, Institute for Physi- 
cal Science and Technology, Karen 
Harris, Special Education, and Ralph 
Bennett, Architecture. 

James Osteen, director of the 
Office of Campus Programs, says 
th.it although the final number of 
entries was 23, the contest prompted 
discussion in numerous classes. "I 
was impressed with the overall qual- 
ity of the entries," savs Osteen.

Postcards From Los Angeles 

History Teaching Assistant Competes on "Jeopardy" 



Jacqueline Moore asked all the 
right answers to do something that 
most will never do: she won on 
"Jeopardy." 

On previously taped shows, which 
aired on Nov, 3 and 4, Moore won 
SI 3,400 and a trip to Bermuda, She 
said that she's going to use the 
money to complete her dissertation in 
U.S. History. 

"I have a 'Jeopardy' fellowship, 
plus a vacation," she says. 

Moore, a teaching assistant in the 
History Department, attended a con- 
testant search for the nationally syn- 
dicated game show in April in 
Atlantic City, N.J. She and other 
"Jeopardy" hopefuls were given a 
10-cjuestion screening test and told, 
"We'll call you." Most people don't 
make it past this first cut, but Moore 
did and was called back in June to 
participate in a mock version of the 
show and auditions. 

LSecause five shows are taped in 
one day, a total of 13 possible contes- 
tants are asked to be present on a 
given day of taping and are chosen 



randomly to be contestants. 

"They ask you to bring three out- 
fits total, in case you're on more than 
one show," Moore says. 

Moore was able to use at least two 
of her three outfits when she showed 
up for taping on Aug. 30. She won 
her first show and earned second 
place on the second. 

As foT meeting Alex Trebek, the 
host, she didn't get to. Trebek is not 
allowed to meet with contestants 
because he knows all of the questions 
to the answers. 

Each show is taped as if it were 
live, so contestants had to turn 
around during commercial breaks so 
that they couldn't look at the game 
board, Moore says. 

Moore was asked to write down 
six interesting things about herself, so 
that Trebek could talk about one dur- 
ing the introduction of the contestants. 

"He asked about mv postcards," 
she says. "[ collect wacky postcards, 
ones that are supposed to be serious 
but are cornv. Mv favorite is one of 

J J 

the New Jersey Turnpike." 




Moore accomplished exactly what 
she wanted to on "Jeopardy." 
"I told all of my friends before I 

left that if I could win the monev one 
day and win the vacation the next, 1 
would be happy," she says.
