The Annapolis Connection
1995 Legislators Mold Maryland's Future
It's 1995 — and a new chapter of
Maryland history is being penned in
Annapolis. Tomorrow, Parris
Glendening will be sworn in as gover-
nor (President William E. Kirwan will
have the honor of introducing the new
governor prior to his inaugural address)
and new legislators are beginning to
convene. How will the University of
Maryland be affected? Campus officials
concur there are no easy answers.
Kirwan's assistant for legislative
affairs, Brian Darmody, says, "This is an
interesting year for a variety of reasons.
One, there was a substantial amount of
turnover in the general assembly. And
two, we have a new governor coming
in who will be appointing new people,
although he did announce some hold-
overs from the Schaefer administration."
According to Darmody, the key for
the university will not lie with the new
general assembly, but with new people
in the executive branch. "The execu-
tive branch is incredibly important to
higher education in the sense that it's
the branch that looks at the budget in
the general assembly."
The general assembly will hold a
series of hearings on both the house
and the senate sides, then the legisla-
tors and their analysts will review the
budget and raise questions once it is
introduced, Darmody explains.
This year will be somewhat different
because the outgoing governor has pre-
pared a budget but the incoming gover-
nor has the ability to reshape that bud-
get. "So the issues are a litde hard to tell
or anticipate because the budget hasn't
been introduced and it's usually
through the budget process that issues
come up," Darmody adds.
The campus itself has both capital
and operating budgets. In the capital
budget, according to Darmody, the
most obvious project is the first phase
of construction funding for the
Maryland Center for the Performing
Arts. Although this is going to be a very
large project, it's essentially displaced

New Paint Branch Parkway Opens
Soon to become the road most trav-
elled, the long-awaited Paint Branch
Parkway is ready for commuters. While
construction officials could not confirm
an actual date, they did indicate that
the road running through the east side
of campus, from Route 1 to Kenilworth
Avenue, is slated to open by the time
Outlook goes to press.
More than a year has passed since
the roadblocks were placed at the tip
of the road opposite the North Gate
Entrance. Since that time, the county,
city and Washington Metropolitan Area
Transit Authority have been working to
pave the way from campus to
Kenilworth, including a portion which
runs underneath the College Park
"The first stretch of road has been
done since October," says Carlo Colella,
acting assistant director of construction
management, engineering and architec-
tural services. "The university gave the
county the right-of-way to put a road in
through campus." Ultimately, says
Colella, there will be a transfer of road
from the county to the university.
Initially, not all will be smooth travel-
ing. According to Samuel Lawrence,
assistant vice president for administra-
tive affairs, leaving the greenhouses,
Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute or
the Physical Distribution Center to head
back toward Route 1 will require travel-
ing eastbound and making a U-turn.
Lawrence says Paint Branch Parkway
will connect with 50th Street and also
No doubt the new thoroughfare will
be a boon to metro commuters and oth-
ers traveling from the Kenilworth
Avenue area. There is no word yet on
how the new route will affect shuttle
Banneker Case Heads
to Supreme Court
The fate of the Benjamin Banne-
ker Scholarship Program now rests
in the hands of the Supreme Court.
On Dec. 30, the 4th U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals refused to reconsid-
er its earlier decision prohibiting the
university from maintaining the 16-
year-old program of scholarships for
The full court voted 8 to 3 not to
rehear the case. The university has
90 days — until the end of March — to
appeal to the Supreme Court.
President William E. Kirwan says the
university fully intends to appeal.
Once the university's appeal
reaches the Supreme Court, the jus-
tices have the option of either hear-
ing the case or turning it aside. If the
court chooses to review the case, a
final ruling would not be made until
later this year at the earliest.
In October, a three-member panel
of judges from the circuit court
unanimously ruled that while racism
still exists on college campuses, the
university failed to narrowly tailor its
Banneker Scholarship Program to
correct the present effects of past
Since that ruling, individuals,
organizations, universities and the
media all have shared the message
that the race-based scholarship pro-
gram is important and effective for
recruiting, maintaining and graduat-
ing African- American students.
Public colleges and universities
across the nation with race-based
scholarship programs will be duly
effected by the outcome of the case.
Daniel Podberesky, a Hispanic stu-
dent, filed a suit four years ago claim-
ing that the Banneker program gave
preferential treatment to blacks at
the expense of other students.
The university is exploring
options for continuing to award the
race-based scholarships until a final
ruling is made. Current Banneker
scholars are exempt from the ruling.

UMCP Wins Defense Awards
Researchers in high power micro-
waves and computer vision have won
two highly sought-after five-year awards
worth a total of $10 million from the
Department of Defense (DoD). The
awards are part of the multidisciplinary
research program of the DoD's
University Research Initiative (URI).
The URI supports research teams
whose efforts intersect more than one
traditional science and engineering dis-
cipline. Only MIT won more of the 22
Victor Granatstein, director of the
Laboratory for Plasma Research won
one award to study compact, high-ener-
gy microwave sources. Granatstein's
research will involve scientists from the
departments of physics, electrical engi-
neering, mathematics and materials and
nuclear engineering. Their work will
focus on three broad areas: experimen-
tal investigations of plasma-filled micro-
wave sources, experimental investiga-
tions of high harmonic operation of
advanced-design gyrotron oscillators
and amplifiers, and theory and model-
ling of advanced high-energy micro-
The second award, in the field of
automated vision/sensing systems, was
made to Azriel Rosenfeld, director of
the Center for Automation Research.
The project will involve faculty mem-
bers from the departments of computer
science and electrical engineering.
Rosenfeld's research will examine
appearance-based vision for complex
environments and will emphasize inte-
grated treatment of objects and back-
grounds in images.
Richard Herman, dean of the College
of Computer, Mathematical, and
Physical Sciences, says the awards
reflect a new spirit of collaboration
between the academic, public and pri-
vate sectors. "These are the kinds of
research projects that bring the acade-
mic and industrial research communi-
ties together while strengthening
both," he says.
William Destler, dean of the A. James
Clark School of Engineering, says the
awards are significant in that "they rec-
ognize the university's ability to put
together distinguished teams of engi-
neers and scientists to address challeng-
ing technological problems."
Cyril Ponnamperuma, professor
emeritus in the department of chem-
istry and biochemistry, died suddenly
on Dec. 20, at age 71, when he suffered
cardiac arrest. The renowned scientist,
who gained notoriety for his investiga-
tions into the origins of life, had been a
member of the faculty since 1971.
Ponnamperuma is survived by his
wife and daughter.
Ponnamperuma, who retired from
teaching this fall, was recognized as a
"leading authority on the origins of
life," in a Sri Lankan radio address by
noted scientist and author Arthur Clark
("2001: A Space Odyssey," and "2010:
Odyssey Two") on Dec. 22.
"The untimely death of Dr. Cyril
Ponnamperuma is a great blow to the
whole world," Clark said. "I would like
to send my deepest sympadiy to Cyril's
family, and to let them know that hun-
dreds of people of many nations — by
no means all of them scientists — will
miss his warm and compassionate per-
Ponnamperuma had written more
than 400 publications on chemical evo-
lution and the origins of life. This past
October he was named by Pope John
Paul II to the Pontifical Academy of
Sciences, a prestigious body of interna-
tional scientists. In 1980 the Interna-
tional Society for the Study of the
Origin of Life awarded him the first A.I.
Oparin Gold Medal for the "best sus-
tained program" on the origin of life.
Upon his arrival at Maryland 23 years
ago, Ponnamperuma founded the
Laboratory of Chemical Evolution and
served as its director until his death.
Recently, he also had been named to
head the university's new North-South
Center for Sustainable Development to
study and support the development of
third-world countries. He was named
distinguished professor by the universi-
ty in 1978.
After his early education in Sri Lanka
and India, Ponnamperuma in 1959
earned his B.S. (honors) degree in
chemistry at Birkbeck College,
University of London, where he studied
with J. D. Bernal, a pioneer in the field
of origin of life. Then in 1962 he
received his Ph.D. in chemistry from
the University of California, Berkeley,
under the direction of Nobel Laureate
In 1962 he was awarded a National
Academy of Sciences Resident
Associateship with NASA's Ames
Research Center, and in 1963 joined
NASA's Exobiology Division, becoming
chief of the Chemical Evolution
Branch. When NASA established the
Apollo space exploration program,
Ponnamperuma was chosen as princi-
pal investigator for organic analysis,
and also worked on both the Viking
and Voyager programs.
Throughout his career, Ponnam-
peruma was active in the international
development of science, particularly
among developing countries. He served
as president of the Third World
Foundation, and was elected a fellow of
the Third World Academy of Sciences,
where he chaired the Global Frontiers
of Science Committee. In 1992 he was
appointed director general of the
Academy's Network of Centers of
Science, a coordinating effort of 20
international centers of sustainable
• In 1984, Ponnamperuma was
appointed science and technology
adviser to the president of Sri Lanka,
and served as chairman of that coun-
try's National Science Policy Planning
Commission from 1985 to 1987. In
1990 he was awarded the "Vidya Jothi"
(Luminary of Science) medal for his ser-
vices to science and to Sri Lanka.
Ponnamperuma's contributions to
science have been recognized by other
nations in recent years. In 1991 the
government of France conferred on
him the title of "Chevalier de Lettres et
des Artes" for promoting international
understanding. In 1993 the Russian
Academy of Creative Arts awarded him
the first Harold Urey Prize in recogni-
tion of his outstanding contributions to
the study of the origin of life.
The University of Maryland celebrat-
ed his international accomplishments
by awarding him its first Distinguished
International Service Award in 1991.

ly is being planned with details to fol-

"When you look at the size — it's about
a $100 million project — approximately
$ 10 million is coming from the county.
"That sounds like a big number. But
when you look at the fact that we typi-
cally get S40 million a year in capital
appropriations and this is going to be
funded over two years, it's not a whole
lot different than any other capital
appropriation we would be getting."
The difference is that it will be aggre-
gated into one building, Darmody adds.
Because of the way the budget is
built, he says, the university has submit-
ted a number of requests which go
from this institution to the University of
Maryland System Board of Regents.
Those requests then get transmitted to
According to figures released by
Tom Vogler, director of budget and fis-
cal analysis, the university is requesting
a total of $694,703,438 for fiscal year
1996, an increase of $6,751,232 from
the 1995 appropriation.
This includes inflationary adjust-
ments such as classified increments,
fringe benefits, insurance and a 1.25
percent merit increase for non-classi-
fied employees. Also included are
adjustments in financial aid/remissions,
the college work-study program and
Darmody says more requests are usu-
ally made than can be accommodated.
"You have to fit all this in the context
of the overall state budget. And higher
education as a percentage of the state
budget has been declining in recent
years. The state budget is only so big,
Medicare funding has been increasing
and public safety and corrections
spending has been increasing. There's
only so many places it can be reduced."
Beyond budgetary considerations,
Darmody says, the general assembly
will be examining faculty productivity.
"My sense is there will be some wait
and see how the [university's] policy
works and whether that satisfies the
general assembly." he says. "If we did
nothing but teaching we would be OK,
and if we did nothing but research that
would presumably be OK, because the
pressure seems to be on national
research universities where teaching,
research and service are combined."
Reducing government has been a hot
issue nationwide. Will it hit close to
home? "It's hard to predict," Darmody
says, "because we have a new governor
and a lot of new delegates and senators.
We have legislators who have read the
elections nationally, and my sense is
that there's going to be some sense of
That's something the Glendening
administration have indicated they will
be looking at — reforming and reorganiz-
ing state government — Darmody adds.
"The question is, are we part of govern-
ment, and the answer is yes, although
one of our challenges is trying to say
we're a special part of government.
We're a higher education institution
first and a part of government second."
University astronomers presented this Hubble image of the "Cat's Eye Nebula,"
a preview of the possible eventual fate of Earth's sun, at a recent meeting of the
American Astronomical Society. The nebula is in the last stages of Its life after
an explosion about 1,000 years ago blew away the outer gas layers of the star.
Hubble Probes the History of a Dying Star
NASA Hubble Space Telescope images presented at the 185th meeting of the
American Astronomical Society in Tucson, Ariz., last week provide a chilling pre-
view of the possible eventual fate of Earth's sun.
Presented by university astronomers J.Patrick Harrington and Kazimierz
Borkowski, the images reveal one of die most complex planetary nebulae ever
seen, NGC 6543. Estimated to be 1,000 years old and located 3,000 light-years
away in the northern constellation Draco, NGC 6543 is a visual "fossil record" of
the dynamics and late evolution of a dying star.
The Hubble images show surprising intricate structures of the nebula, nick-
named the "Cat's Eye Nebula," including concentric gas shells, jets of high-speed
gas and unusual shock-induced knots of gas. A preliminary interpretation sug-
gests that the star might be a double-star system.
The dynamic effects of two stars orbiting one another most easily explains the
intricate structures, which are much more complicated than features seen in
most planetary nebulae.
According to this model, a fast "stellar wind" of gas blown off the central star
created the elongated shell of dense, glowing gas. This structure is embedded
inside two larger lobes of gas blown off the star earlier. These lobes are
"pinched" by a ring of denser gas.
The suspected companion star also might be responsible for a pair of high-
speed jets of gas that lie at right angles to this equatorial ring. If the companion
were pulling in material from a neighboring star, jets escaping along die com-
panion's rotation axis could be produced.
These jets would explain several puzzling features along the periphery of the
gas lobes. The jets compress gas ahead of them, creating the "curlicue" features
and bright arcs near the outer edge of the lobes. The twin jets are now pointing
in different directions than these features. This suggests the jets are wobbling
and turning on and off episodically.
Faculty and Students Serve on Glendening's Transition Teams
"The future of Maryland rests with
our children," says Gov.-clect Parris
Glendening. "From pre-school to Ph.D.,
we have an inviolable obligation to offer
the best possible public education."
With that statement, 68 members of
Glendening's education policy transi-
tion committee set to work preparing a
report for the new governor. Their key
challenge: to address the central ques-
tion, "How can we use the evolving
assessment and accountability process,
as well as other innovative tools, to cre-
ate the nation's best educational system?"
Helping prepare that report were
transition committee members
President William E. Kirwan, two stu-
dents and three faculty members from
the University of Maryland. Student
members included Kevin Lawrence and
Bill Keimig, of the department of gov-
ernment and politics. Faculty partici-
pants included Charles Christian, associ-
ate professor of geography; Carmen
Gonzalez-Roman, instructor in the
department of Spanish and Portuguese;
and Lois Vietri, instructor in the depart-
ment of government and politics.
According to Christian, who served
on the higher education subcommittee,
"Nobody knows how they were chosen
for the committee or who did the
choosing," but he was pleased to serve.
"I thought I'd jump in and do what I
According to Christian, the transition
committee dealt with four issues: gover-
nance, technology, funding, access and
diversity. Weekly meetings to address
the issues began last Dec. 10 and a final
report was turned in to the Executive
Transition Committee Jan. 10.
Vietri describes her service on the
education transition committee as an
exciting opportunity. "One of the great
things about any political involvement
is the great people you meet," she says.
"It was both surprising and gratifying
to look around the [higher education]
group and realize that among the three
dozen members we were the only facul-
ty," says Vietri. "The rest were college
presidents and association leaders."
Christian concurs with Vietri about
the mix of members. "Surely some of
the best minds were there — a whole
range of education providers," he says.
Given the broad range of individuals on
the committee, says Christian, there
was extensive debate, discussion and
lobbying. "But they were all necessary
to provide the governor with thought-
provoking report and a plan."
In addition to the education transi-
tion team, there were faculty serving on
other policy committees. Charles
Wellford, professor and director of the
department of criminal justice and crim-
inology, served on the transition team
for public safety. And Mahlon

Lute and Harpsichord Combine for Rare Music
A kind of keyboard instrument lost
since the 18th century— and only
recently reconstructed by scholars and
instrument builders — will be heard for
the first time in the Washington area
when Kim Heindel performs at the
Ulrich Recital Hall on Saturday, Jan. 21,
at 8 p.m., preceded by a free seminar at
The instrument, the lute-harpsichord
(or I .autenwerk) was an ingenious
hybrid of the lute and the harpsichord,
intended to combine the resonant,
expressive sound of the lute with the
mechanical versatility of the keyboard.
First built in the 16th century, such
instruments were owned by Henry V1I1
and Johann Sebastian Bach, who had
one built to his own specifications and
owned one or two others.
Kim Heindel made the recording
debut for the lute-harpsichord with his
recent release on the Gasparo label,
The Art of the Lautenwerk. In the
recording, says Early Music Magazine,
"Heindel proves a persuasive advocate
for lautenwerk's ability to combine the
gut-strung lute's gentleness and beauty
of tone with he keyboard's facility." For
the American Record Guide, the record-
ing "reveals a richer and much more
singing tone that the lute stop of any

Bach long thought to have been written
for lute. Some of the music is suspi-
ciously cumbersome on lute but ideally
suited for a keyboard such as the lute-
harpsichord. English lutenist and musi-
cologist Nigel North has recently writ-
ten his opinion that almost all of Bach's
so-called lute pieces were, in fact, writ-
ten for the lute-harpsichord. Heindel's
recording of those works on lute-harpsi-
chord will be released in 1995 on the
German writers in Bach's time
claimed that the lute-harpsichord so
convincingly mimicked the sound of a
lute that "one could almost deceive a
professional lutenist" and that it sound-

and produced a "harmony beyond
Except for descriptions of the lute-
harpsichord from the Baroque period,
none of the instruments and no pictori-
al representation has been discovered.
Surviving descriptions and specifica-
tions have been used to reconstruct the
instrument in the 20th century.
The first modern performances took
place in Germany in 1932, featuring,
among other works, an arrangement of
Bach's E-minor Suite for lute-harpsi-
chord by Hindemith. This instrument
was destroyed by fire during World War
II, and another was not built until the
On Jan. 21, Heindel will perform on

A Family of Firefighters Train at New College Park Station
Imagine being a student and having
to share a bathroom with 1 2 other guys.
Fortunately for Private Kevin Holdredge,
a senior criminal justice major from
Princeton, N.J., the opening of the new
firehouse, on 81 15 Baltimore Ave.,
makes the aforementioned bathroom
burden a distant memory.
The old station, which was located
next to fraternity row, housed just 14
students, two of whom were female,
and was lacking in numerous ways. One
dilemma for students who lived there
over the summer centered around the
two-week closing of the steam genera-
tor in mid-June.
"We had to go to another station to
take a shower with hot water,"
Holdredge says. "In the new station,

work as volunteer firefighters at the
College Park station in exchange for
free room and board.
"I volunteered at home

had intended to when I came here,"
says freshman fire engineering major
Amy McGarry. "When I heard they
would pay my room and board, I said
sign me up!"
While a decrease in living expenses
may attract students to the facility. Chief
Paul Cimino is quick to point out that
the students work hard for their housing.
"We don't provide a free room here.
It's an exchange," Cimino says. "The 24
people who live here trade [the cost of]
that room for training and on-duty time."

one another and that it could almost be

"We have our own family here,"
McGarry says. "I feel like they're all my
big brothers. I try to go out somewhere
and my big brothers are watching every
step I take, so I can't really go out and
have too much fun."
Cimino, who has been the chief at
two other stations in the state, says that
dealing with nearly all students is a
"I have clothes that are older than
these kids," he jokes. "But without try-
ing to sound arrogant, the students who
come here are the cream of the crop."
There is no direct connection
between the campus and the station
with regard to finances or training, but,
as Cimino puts it "We're just big sup-
porters of each other."
The current facility is a marked
improvement. In addition to housing 24
students, it has a new weight room, and
requires just four students to share a

for the students (Holdredge says he

the program can carry the responsibili-

Helps Ensure a Friendly Environment
When people try to accomplish
something together, usually some con-
flicts arise. When 32,000 students and
nearly 8,000 faculty and staff from all
sorts of backgrounds join a university in
pursuit of their collective and individual
goals, the atmosphere could be

65 workshops are conducted through

faculty and staff still are unaware of the
campus sexual harassment policy and

ber of the state budget review group.
Norm Silverstcin, director of the
Joint Media Project at Maryland, was
asked to serve on the efficiency and
effectiveness in government team. He
describes his role as a good experience.
The group looked at workforce efficien-
cy and ways to increase the use of infor-
mation technology, he says. "The orien-
tation is toward reinventing govern-
ment and the state having a customer
approach," Silverstein adds.
Among the many recommendations
from Silverstein's committee was the
come to us. We help them identify the
issues and discuss their options."
Besides sexual harassment, universi-
ty employees sometimes experience
discrimination problems with promo-
tion or job benefits, while students usu-
ally complain about grades or hostile
remarks in the classroom.
Brown says her office's response
depends upon what the complainant
wants to happen. In some cases, people
only want advice on how to handle a
situation, or they want to know what
their rights are.
"About one-third of the caseload
involves supervisors who are experi-
encing these situations in their unit and
want advice on what to do about it,"
says Brown. In these cases, the office
works with the unit until the problem
is resolved. The actions may include
policy changes, awareness training or
mediation for employees.
Formal complaints require a written
charge of discrimination or sexual
harassment and demand a complete
investigation with witnesses, a report
and sometimes third-party intervention.
More often, complainants choose to
charge the alleged
offender. When someone

Brown says it doesn't hurt to come

whether to initiate the next step, but
they should not be afraid to do so.

because we're trying to employ a win-
win situation," says Brown. She says the
complainants often do not want the

Upon request, the office of human
relations also holds workshops for indi-
vidual units to promote awareness of
discrimination or sexual harassment.
Brown thinks such events have a lasting
affect on participants. "Most individuals
do not willingly and gleefully discrimi-
nate to cause emotional and profession-
al harm," she says. "When they are
made aware of their actions they are
willing to change their conduct.
Sometimes a reminder of the policies is
enough to get them back on the right
Complaints to the office of human
relations can affect official university
policies. According to Brown, sexual
orientation was included in the school's
human relations code as a result of the
number of harassment complaints by
homosexual students and employees.
The office also was responsible for
the development of a computer harass-
ment policy. And complaints by classi-
fied staff who felt they are not getting
benefits such as professional develop-
ment opportunities resulted in the cre-
ation of a classified employee council.
Career Exploration and Opportunities
Lead to Increased Student Volunteerism
The number of college students who
volunteer is declining. But a University
of Maryland psychology professor may
be able to get those numbers up.
Karen O'Brien and her colleagues,
William E. Sedlacek and Jonathan J.
Kandell of the Counseling Center, ran-
domly sampled 932 students who were
beginning their first year and identified
two personality types most willing to
volunteer. They are: social personality
types, who are friendly, helpful, idealis-
tic, outgoing and understanding; and
conventional personality types, who are
well organized, accurate, methodical
O'Brien found that some personality
types expressed very little interest in
volunteering and suggests that descrip-
tions of volunteer opportunities may
play a role in attracting certain stu-
dents. For instance, she discovered
social types to be most interested in
volunteering for a crisis hotline or
counseling center while conventional
types were most interested in volun-
teering at a health center.
To increase the number of volun-
teers O'Brien advises campus organiza-
tions to reevaluate their recruitment
strategies and expand on their descrip-
tion of opportunities. "Giving an accu-
rate and detailed description of the
tasks involved and expanding the num-
ber and types of tasks available to stu-
dent volunteers will attract more
diverse types of volunteers," says
O'Brien, who notes that increasing vol-
unteerism will benefit the students as
much as the university.
"Many students believe that finding a
career is the main reason to attend col-
lege," says O'Brien. "What they don't
realize is that volunteering is an ideal
way to explore career interests."
"Counselors and administrators
should promote volunteering as an
effective career exploration tool," says
O'Brien, who believes it is the responsi-
bility of student affairs administrators to
provide more volunteer opportunities
and appeal to a wider range of students
to assist many types of individuals in
the career exploration process.
In the study, published in the
National Association of Student
Personnel Journal, O'Brien also found
that women are more willing to volun-
teer with campus organizations than
men and that remuneration is not a fac-
tor in college students' decisions to vol-
unteer for campus organizations in
their freshman year.
Recycle, Reuse and Reduce
Polysaurus Six and 40 "muggers"
helped promote No Trash Day last
semester to educate people about poly-
styrene and recycling.
On Dec. 7, 1994, the Environmental
Conservation Organization (ECO) and
the Maryland Public Interest Research
Group (MaryPIRG) enlisted the help of
a "trashy" 8 by 10 foot dinosaur to
stomp out polystyrene use. And in
South Campus Dining Hall that day, 40
participants carried reusable plastic
mugs to remind others of the alterna-
tive to the polystyrene cups sold there.
An idea originally used by the New
Jersey Public Interest Group to con-
vince campuses in that state to ban out-
dated, unrecyclable polystyrene,
Polysaurus Six was built by ECO work-
ers out of wire mesh and used poly-
styrene products that had accumulated
in ECO's dumpsters.
"ECO has always had a plan to do
something about polystyrene because
we get so much of it down at the recy-
cling center and it doesn't get recy-
cled," says Hye Yeong Kwon, a senior
biology major and ECO's administrative
director of recycling. When MaryPIRG
approached ECO with the idea for
Polysaurus Six, they were enthusiastic
about building it.
Junior electrical engineering major
Steve Perez, MaryPIRG's green campus
project director, says that MaryPIRG
will be instituting a mug program this
semester, where students can bring
mugs to the dining hall instead of using
something they'll have to throw away.
More than 60 mugs were distributed to
students on No Trash Day and Perez is
encouraged by the students enthusiasm
about using them.
MaryPIRG's efforts, says Perez, are all
toward making the campus "more envi-
ronmentally friendly." This semester,
they are working to get white paper
recycling in the dorms and looking into
pesticide use on campus.
When asked what people can do to
help the efforts of MaryPIRG and ECO,

km, occurs near the Korolev Basin.
