Avoid Parking Hassles from Thursday Evening Football Game 




The Maryland Terrapins will host the defending national champions from Florida State in a nation- 
ally televised game in Byrd Stadium at 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 28. Indications are that a large crowd will 
descend on the campus beginning in the late afternoon, taking up parking spaces and jamming the 
roads even before most faculty and staff normally begin to leave. 

The Department of Campus Parking will post signs around the campus and send letters to affected 
permit holders this week to let people know about the planned adjustments to the parking scheme 
for Sept. 28.

ARGC Honored with $4.6 Million Army Grant 



Hypertension Genetic Research 
Advanced by $2 million NIH grant 

Toss those pills and head for the gym may be just what 
the doctor orders for some individuals with hypertension, 
depending on their genetic makeup. Genetics and exercise 
training are part of the prescripdon behind the National 
Institutes of Health $2 million grant awarded to James 
Hagberg, professor of kinesiology at the University of 
Maryland. 

'"We are looking to see if genetic variations identify spe- 
cific individuals who can lower their blood pressure with 
exercise training," said Hagberg. 

Based on exercise studies of people withsuch heart dis- 
ease risk factors as high cholesterol, diabetes, and obesity, 
Hagberg has found that people appear to respond different- 
ly to the same levels of activity. The differences in response 
may be in large part due to an individual's genetic makeup. 
Previous studies conducted by Hagberg's team have shown 
that about 75 percent of hypertensives reduce their blood 
pressure with exercise training while 25 percent do not see 
any significant difference. 

During this genetic exercise study, Hagberg's group will 
look at sedentary but healthy individuals between the ages 
of 50 and 70 who may have slightly elevated levels of blood 
pressure. Participants can expect a heart-healthy diet pro- 
gram, six months of exercise training, a complete look at 
their heart disease risk factors, such as diabetes, and analysis 
of their cholesterol levels and body composition. 

The team hopes this kind of further research may allow 
physicians to screen someone's DNA and determine if exer- 
cise or medication is the answer for an elevated risk of heart 
disease. 

Individuals who are interested in lowering their blood 
pressure can participate in this study by calling the Genetic 
Exercise Research Study at 405-2571. 



The University of 
Maryland's Alfred Gessow 
Rotorcraft Center 
(AGRQ has become the 
Army's top-funded 
Rotorcraft Center of 
Excellence with the 
fourth renewal of its 
grant from the 
Army/NASA National 
Rotorcraft Technology 
Center, for $4.6 million 
from January 2001 
through December 2005. 

Established in 1982, 
the AGRC is one of three 
Army/NASA Centers of 
Excellence and for the 
first time will receive 
more funding than the 
other two, Georgia Tech 
and Penn State. 

"This award is very 
significant and gratifying, 
in that we have achieved 
the number one status in 
rotorcraft education and 
research in the world," 
said Inderjit Chopra, 
Alfred Gessow Rotorcraft 
Professor and director of 
the AGRC, which is in the 
department of aerospace 



engineering. 

The Army/NASA grant 
will support about 20 
graduate students who 
will work on the 15 
research projects identi- 
fied in the grant. On one 
of the projects.AGRC 
will team with Hampton 
University in Virginia. 
AGRC won its renewal in 
a national competition 
judged by an 18-member 
panel of experts from 
federal agencies and the 
aerospace industry. 

Chopra praised the 
continuing team of 
Gordon Leishman, 
Fredric Schmitz, Roberto 
Celijames Baeder, 
Norman Werely, Darryll 
Pines and Amr Baz for 
building the center's 
national and international 
reputation, as well as 
new members Ella Atkins 
and Benjamin Shapiro. All 
but Baz, who is in 
mechanical engineering, 
are in the department of 
aerospace engineering. 
Professor Emeritus Alfred 



Gessow continues to 
enthusiastically support 
the Center with guidance 
and sage advice, Chopra 
said. 

Since its founding, 
AGRC has produced 45 
Ph.D.5 and 120 master's 
graduates, has published 
more than 270 archival 
journal papers and more 
than 450 conference 
papers. In addition to the 
Center of Excellence 
project, AGRC has 
received a five-year 
Department of Defense 
Multidisciplinary 
University Research 
Initiative (MURI) grant to 
study smart structures 
technology in rotorcraft 
systems, as well as more 
than a dozen grants from 
other sources to provide 
a total research budget of 
more than $3 million per 
year, supplemented by 
generous support of the 
University. The program 
currently supports more 
than 50 graduate stu- 
dents. 




Help Sought in 
Scholarship 



Finding Major 
Prospects 






Maryland students should be win- 
ajor scholarships like Rhodes, 
, Marshalls and Goldwaters 
with regularity. All they need is a little 
help from their friends in the faculty. 

That was the message of university 
administrators and representatives from 
the major scholarship foundations who 
spoke to students and faculty at last 
Thursday's Scholarship Awareness Event 
in the Stamp Student Union. 

The soaring increase in the academic 
quality of Maryland undergraduates 
indicates that there are plenty of poten- 
tial Rhodes, Truman and Marshall schol- 
ars already on campus, said Canulle 
St ill well, coordinator of the National 
Scholarship Office in the Division of 
Undergraduate Studies. 

We need more support from faculty 
overall in order to help more of our stu- 
dents win these scholarships ," Stillwell 
said. "We need help in every phase of 
the scholarship process." 

StiUweU said it is especially impor- 
tant to look for the "shining stars" 
among students and identify them early 
in their college careers. Faculty also can 
serve as mentors, screeners and inter- 



viewers to help prepare students for 
the rigors of applying for the major 
scholarships. 

The Scholarship Awareness Event 
attracted more than three dozen faculty 
and more than 200 students to separate 
sessions in which representatives from 
the Truman, Marshall and Rhodes schol- 
arship foundations explained the 
opportunities and processes for apply- 
ing for the scholarships. 

Maryland's last Rhodes Scholar, the 
Honorable C. Thomas McMillen, also 
addressed the students and recounted 
how he chose between the Rhodes 
Scholarship and an immediate career in 
the National Basketball Association in 
1974 and then commuted between 
Oxford University in England and 
Milan, Italy, so he could play In the 
Italian basketball league. 

Maryland President Dan Mote intro- 
duced McMillen and presented him 
with several gifts. 

Faculty who are interested in help- 
ing the National Scholarship Office in 
any capacity should contact Camille 
Stillwell at 301-314-1289 or by email at 
cstillwe@deans.umd.edu

Month-Long Festival Celebrates Beloved Composer 



To honor the 100th anniversary of 
Aaron Copland's birth, the School of 
Music, the Clarice Smith Performing 
Arts Center and numerous co-sponsors pres- 
ent a month-long tribute to this American 
icon. Part music festival and part scholarly 
conference, "Aaron Copland and American 
Identity" enlists cross-campus involvement 
to explore the composer's unique legacy in 
America's cultural landscape. Anchoring the 
School of Music's fall season, "Aaron 
Copland and American Identity" is one of 
more than 200 centenary celebrations being 
held worldwide to honor the man often 
considered America's greatest composer. 
"Aaron Copland and American Identity" 
continues through Oct. 22. For tickets or 
further information, call the Clarice Smith 
Performing Arts Center ticket office at 
405-7847 or visit the Web site at 
www. claricesmithcenter. umd.edu/copland . 

New Regulations for Outdoor Concerts 

The moratorium has been lifted on amplified sound at out- 
door concerts on campus following the Task Force on Concert 
Management's development of a new set of policies and proce- 
dures. 

The policies, which university administrators have reviewed 
and approved, were a response to community complaints about 
noise during the spring 20O0 Art Attack concert on McKddin 
Mall, sponsored by Student Entertainment Events. 

The new rules include the following: 

• Student Entertainment Events, or SEE, will continue in its 
role as the sponsor of large concerts (anticipated attendance of 
more than 5,000 and contract cost in excess of $15,000) and as 
the sponsor or co-sponsor of medium-sized concerts (anticipated 
attendance of 1 ,200-5,000 and performance contract cost of 
$5,000 to $15,000). 

• The location of Art Attack and other such large outdoor con- 
certs will be in Byrd Stadium. 

• Amplified sound at outdoor concerts will be restricted after 
10 p.m, 

• Safety concerns related to crowd control and event manage- 
ment are subject to new coordination procedures. 

• Access to concert venues will be via a ticketing system 
which gives priority to students and other campus community 
members and their guests. 

William L. Thomas, vice president for student affairs, com- 
mended the task force for its work in developing the procedures. 
"They have appropriately addressed the issues related to public 
safety concerns of the institution related to large outdoor events 
as well as the noise disturbance experienced by the surrounding 
community," he said. "As a result, I have lifted the moratorium on 
amplified sound at outdoor events." 

The Student Government Association has charged a separate 
group with reviewing the procedures SEE uses to select perform- 
ing groups for Art Attack and other concerts.
